It's getting to pretty easy, convenient, and inexpensive to be an illegal alien in the U.S. under Joe Biden's new open-borders policies.
According to a report from JustTheNews, complete with pdfs of the actual documents:
Like travel agents preparing customers for a cruise, nonprofits working with the Biden administration have created detailed itineraries and information packets to help illegal aliens travel to wherever they want to go in the U.S., according to documents obtained by a Texas congressman.
Often courtesy of American taxpayers struggling to pay their bills during surging inflation, illegals are given free quality hotel rooms, plane tickets and transportation to the airport, travel maps, and instructions to TSA to bypass photo ID requirements, according to the documents shared with Just the News.
The prototype packet, which was provided by a whistleblower to Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas), undermines Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas' claim that the southern border is closed. Instead, it highlights an extensive network of nonprofits, corporations and family foundations working together to circumvent immigration laws passed by Congress.
No wonder there's a surge at the border. With deals like this, it's 'Black Friday' for illegals.
Citing the "welcome packet" handed out to a 46-year-old Honduran who's here illegally in San Diego from an NGO-linked "California Welcoming Task Force," and "San Diego Rapid Response Network" such a foreign national gets a $400 a night hotel room at a prime San Diego Sheraton advertised as close to tourist hotspots Sea World and Old Town. The hotel room comes complete with free wi-fi, fitness center, mobile check-in, coin laundry, dry cleaning service, air conditioning, cable television, microwave oven, mini-fridge and much more.
After that, there's a free flight for the illegal border crosser to his destination of choice in the U.S., along with free transportation to the airport, a special exemption request to the TSA for any need to present airport identification as other travelers are required to do, (a helpful thing given that the migrants connected through the same NGO, this one Jewish Family Service, are also provided free legal advice to never carry identification from foreign countries). They get preferential boarding ahead of legal paying travelers, a slew of free meals, a selection of free household goods, (which may include diapers, baby formula, designer flip-flops -- not the cheap kind -- clothing, a baby car seat, $118 luggage, and a backpack suitable for carrying a laptop). After that, there's free lawyers for arguing one's "asylum" case (with the easy presumption that there's no such thing as a non-asylum case, everyone's an asylum case and therefore entitled to "asylum.") There's also information on free housing, free medical care, free education and free "community resources" once at destination.
Who wouldn't want that kind of deal?
And it's interesting indeed that all this stuff is free given that the migrants have a lot of cash to pay human smugglers, as well as plenty of cash for air flights. Note that in the recent week's Rapid Response team's lists of people "helped" in the San Diego corridor, the majority are from places like Russia, Armenia, Ukraine, and a few other non-Mexican places depending on the week. Someone's obviously got the smuggling network racket going on the Mexico side and someone's obviously got plenty of cash for flights from halfway around the world. You can tell of course, by all the new designer clothing and expensivee baby strollers and luggage seen on the crossing migrants in news pictures as well, they are indicators. Yet these migrant welcome packets are free, the organization emphasized that they are free given that migrants have cash to pay con-men who know they have money, and apparently, there's no such thing as means-testing, not with a media happy to play the "narrative" about dirt poor migrants somehow spilling into the U.S. out of desperation.
JustTheNews points out that there's a massive interlinked web of such NGOs who serve as an enabling network for these illegal migrants, and whose very reason for existence as well as funding, would vanish were it not for these illegal migrants to "serve." They need these migrants or they'd go out of "business." Some specialize in dishing out taxpayer COVID relief funds to illegals (Casa Familiar proudly stated that it handed out $75,000 to 150 families, an average of $500 per illegal family), others specialize in legal or other services.
Bottom line is they've got every incentive to encourage illegal immigration and phony "asylum" cases even as their "feeder" lines upon which they depend for "raw material" amounts to Mexico's dreaded drug cartels and evil human smuggling rackets. They're the enablers of the cartels and their profits and the disaster Mexico's dealing with as a result of it is on them. What's more, they like to serve as "lookouts" in that they have a "hotline" for reporting "checkpoints" and immigration raids. They don't consider U.S. immigration law legitimate in any sense.
A look at the various networks involved in this network of services offered through the "welcome packet" is vast indeed, and I am only looking at San Diego, which isn't the most intense illegal border entry point. From the San Diego Rapid Response Network, here's a screen shot showing the list of participants:
