My colleague Becky Noble reported on how bad it is at the border on Tuesday with the massive number of illegal aliens flooding across the border.
Now, there are a few videos from Fox’s Bill Melugin in Lukeville, Arizona, which truly capture the scope of how bad it is.
First, there is the African immigrant thanking Joe Biden for just leaving the doors open and letting him in.
“I love you Joe Biden, thank you for everything, Joe Biden!”— Bill Melugin (@BillMelugin_) December 5, 2023
I talked to two African men who crossed illegally into Lukeville, AZ (Morocco & Liberia).
Both admitted to me they are not seeking asylum, & instead want work and opportunity in US. Both are planning to go to NYC. pic.twitter.com/IK8fcY3qvB
“I love you Joe Biden, thank you for everything, Joe Biden!” the male African migrant told Fox News in Lukeville, Arizona.
“I’m a good person, I want to be good person here in the United States,” he said.
Both he and another migrant said they are not seeking asylum and instead wanted work and opportunity in the U.S.
“I came here because I want [a] quality life, America is a land of opportunity,” the other migrant, also from Africa, said.
Yet, they will likely claim asylum and be allowed right in along with thousands of others lined up along the fence, mostly single men from Senegal, Guinea, Mauritania, Egypt, other areas of the Middle East, and Asia, according to Melugin. Many were just camped out in the mess along the wall.
One of our live shots in Lukeville, AZ this morning. Masses of men crossing illegally from all over the globe. Trash everywhere. Horrific stench of human feces. None of the men we’ve spoken w/ today have been “asylum seekers”. They tell us they want work & opportunity in US. pic.twitter.com/WYRYdgG0w9— Bill Melugin (@BillMelugin_) December 5, 2023
“Masses of men crossing illegally from all over the globe,” Melugin explained. “Trash everywhere. Horrific stench of human feces. None of the men we’ve spoken w/ today have been ‘asylum seekers’. They tell us they want work & opportunity in US.”
NEW: Good morning from Lukeville, AZ, where hundreds of adult men from around the world have crossed into the US illegally and are waiting for Border Patrol to take custody. A Mauritanian man told us he paid smugglers $10,000, first flew into Colombia, then headed north to US. pic.twitter.com/RuiTeK61D4— Bill Melugin (@BillMelugin_) December 5, 2023
They’re cutting holes in the wall and flooding through, even as the Customs and Border Patrol officers and federal contractors were trying to plug the holes. Here you can see a group streaming in as a smuggler then taunts the reporters with a little salute at the end, knowing they can get away with anything and mocking the security.
NEW: Our cameras were rolling in Lukeville, AZ as groups of illegal immigrants rushed through a breach in the border wall as Border Patrol & federal contractors were trying to fix it. Their human smuggler then shrugs at our cameras & salutes us. Cuts/breaches all over wall here. pic.twitter.com/z2EI4KC9HH— Bill Melugin (@BillMelugin_) December 5, 2023
According to Melugin:
Per CBP sources, there were over 10,000 migrant encounters at the southern border yesterday, including 8,500+ illegal immigrants apprehended by BP, & 1,600+ at ports of entry. 168 Chinese nationals crossed in San Diego sector as well. This was the second day in row of 10k+.
This is just not sustainable. There’s no way to adequately vet this massive number of people. They’re just letting them in and sending them all over the country.
Yet the response of the Democrats? Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) wants them to be able to join the military, and give them citizenship if they do so. Then they can vote, and I wonder who they would vote for?
We are living in insane times with Democrats in charge who seem to want to destroy our security and our country.
