EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) — Officials on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border are concerned about the growing involvement of drug cartels in migrant smuggling. U.S. Rep. Will Hurd (R-Texas) this week pushed in Washington, D.C., an amendment to the Intelligence Authorization Act (IAA) that directs American intelligence agencies to prioritize enforcement actions against drug cartels and other organizations involved in human smuggling. In the meantime, migrant advocates in Mexico warned that with the new Mexican National Guard shutting down obvious routes between U.S. ports of entry, migrants would turn to smugglers to take them through less-traveled paths.

They profit while people in Central America suffer and entire nations are destabilized,” Hurd said on the House floor. He suggested that law enforcement is not maximizing the use of intelligence, as demonstrated by the 104,000 migrants apprehended in June along the Southwest border. “Almost every one of them had a phone number of a smuggler, a license plate of a bus that brought them here or a pickup location in their home country,” Hurd said. “Understanding and disabling these smuggling and trafficking networks should be a national intelligence priority.” The Border Patrol concurs that “practically everyone” apprehended in the El Paso Sector outside of a port of entry utilized the services of a smuggler. Hurd’s amendment would require the Director of National Intelligence to conduct a review of priorities in the Northern Triangle — Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador — as well as in Mexico and then provide quarterly briefings to Congress. Also this week, U.S. Rep. Jody Hice (R-Georgia) asked Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan at a House Judiciary subcommittee if Mexican drug cartels, including the Zetas, the Gulf cartel and the Sinaloa cartel were “massively profiting” from transporting migrants to the United States. McAleenan said “yes.” The Acting Secretary estimates that the drug cartels are making more than $3 billion now from this business model. In Juarez, officials with the National Immigration Institute (INM) wouldn’t provide information on smuggling groups, but an agency spokesman said the agency’s enforcement arm, has raided several hotels and residences where Cuban and Central American smugglers had been housed by smugglers. And Javier Calvillo, director of Juarez’s largest migrant shelter, Casa del Migrante, told KTSM he’s concerned that the use of the Mexican National Guard to prevent Central Americans from crossing the Rio Grande, would lead more of them to use smugglers. The Catholic priest said he has already heard cases in which migrants either died or became dehydrated wondering the desert south of Santa Teresa and south of Tornillo.

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – After visiting migrant detention centers along the Mexico-United States border Friday, Democratic U.S. Sen. Jack Reed said the continued separation of children from families is “not something anyone would want to see.” Reed, who is the longest-serving member of the Rhode Island congressional delegation, traveled to the border in McAllen, Texas, where hundreds of migrants are being held in detention facilities, including one containing only children. “It’s disheartening to see children separated from their parents and being held – frankly – behind bars,” Reed told WPRI during an interview afterward. “They weren’t the ones that decided they had to go north.” The U.S. House of Representatives this month released new statistics showing more than 2,600 migrant children have been separated from their parents since the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy went into effect last year. Reed visited various detention facilities, along with the Catholic Charities for the Rio Grande Valley headed by Sister Norma Pimentel, which he said was the “one bright spot” on his visit.

Jack Reed) “They were helping these families that were being released,” he said. “It was the best of America.” Less encouraging, however, was the large number of people he said were trying to survive behind bars at the McAllen Border Patrol facility, along with overburdened border patrolmen who were charged with providing care for migrants instead of their intended mission of law enforcement. “They will admit that they have had very difficult circumstances and they need more support,” Reed said. In the short term, Reed said families should be reunited and people being detained should be given proper health care and other basic necessities. The country should also use diplomacy with Central American governments to try and improve living conditions abroad, so residents don’t feel the need to flee their homelands, he added. The highest number of detained immigrants in the United States come from Mexico, followed by El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, according to the nonprofit advocacy group Freedom for Immigrants. “When I spoke to the families, they told me they came here to escape violence and to find a better life with their children,” Reed said. “They’re not criminals.” To reduce the high number of people waiting at the border, he added, the judicial system should try to decide on cases of asylum more quickly. Reed didn’t go so far as to liken the detention centers to “concentration camps” like some of his Democratic colleagues in Congress. But he also didn’t miss an opportunity to take a shot at Republicans, including President Trump, who he said have stymied good-faith efforts to pass comprehensive immigration reform in the past. “The president uses this issue to divide the country,” Reed said. “I remember when George W. Bush was president, he actually engaged with us in a serious conversation about immigration reform.”   Eli Sherman (esherman@wpri.com) is a Target 12 investigative reporter for WPRI 12.
