WaPo: Coronavirus Rules Help DHS Eject Border Crossers in Just 96 Minutes


President Donald Trump’s border reforms are helping the Department of Homeland Security to eject most southern migrants in just 96 minutes, according to a report in the Washington Post.

“Migrants who cross into the United States illegally are being expelled to Mexico in an average of 96 minutes under emergency coronavirus measures now in force across the U.S. southern border, according to three U.S. officials with knowledge of the latest government statistics,” the newspaper reported Monday. The report said:

Under the new rules, U.S. agents are processing migrants from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras “in the field” before they are able to set foot inside a U.S. Border Patrol station. The migrants are then whisked back to the border and sent into Mexico.

The flow of unauthorized border crossings has plunged since the emergency measures were implemented on March 21, down from more than 1,000 per day to fewer than 600 on Sunday, the latest statistics show.

Trump’s border reforms include the “Remain in Mexico” program, the transfer of asylum-seeking migrants to Central American countries, and additional curbs imposed during the coronavirus emergency. read more

  1. Maybe we can morph the ‘Corona Virus’ emergency into the ‘Illegal Crosser’ emergency and continue with the same rules (or stricter).

  2. 96 minutes? What, does that include Border Patrol’s lunch hour and a half!?

    Wish I had 96 uninterrupted minutes of a Federal agency’s time! And I wouldn’t need an interpreter, either, if you know what I mean.

  3. “The migrants are then whisked back to the border and sent into Mexico”

    want to bet this is one government program that doesn’t last forever?

  4. The real problem is the jerks here who provide them jobs at the expense of american workers. The virus is doing more to solve that problem than the government ever would.

  5. Now we know how long it takes to process them “in the field” which will include all their basic demographics, recording them on video, taking DNA samples, and whatever else CBP does to log these criminals into the national database before giving them a free ride to the correct side of the border.

    The silver lining in this shitsandwich is that once they are logged into the system as criminal border jumpers they can NEVER apply for legal citizenship EVER again and if they do somehow make it into the USA at a later date all the new laws and EO’s Trump has put in place will deny these criminal illegals the “freebies for life” that have been the draw for these peasants for the last 60 years when it comes to welfare, housing, food stamps, or any other federal handout.

    Next up, shooting them when caught a second time since they are being used as bio-weapons against us.
