WH blames cartels for immigration surge

Bridget Johnson reports that White House Domestic Policy Council director Cecilia Munoz stated on a call with reporters,

The administration is blaming “misinformation that is being deliberately planted by criminal organizations, by smuggling networks, about what people can expect if they come to the United States” for the influx of Central Americans.

“That is misinformation that is being promulgated and put forward in a very deliberate way,” said Munoz.

Certainly the cartels have the money and the muscle for the logistics involved in this invasion.

The most recent statistics from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) show that narcotics seizures have fallen across the entire border with Mexico this year, with the drop being worse in Texas than the average.

The cartels also have no scruples on possibly kidnapping and/or paying off orphanages for hundreds of toddlers to make the situation more critical for U.S. authorities.
