In this episode of International Reporters Roundtable, we go down to southern Texas and the U.S.–Mexico border, where tens of thousands of migrants from all over the world have been amassing and crossing illegally into the United States, roughly 10,000 per day now, as Title 42 finally expired. The law was enacted to protect the country during the pandemic, which has been declared officially over.
But that’s not the reason for this historic surge of people risking their lives and freedom, becoming debt slaves to the transnational cartels.
The current U.S. administration with its actions has sent a message that they’re welcome, with U.N. agencies supporting the mass resettlement, distributing detailed maps and rape kits. Meanwhile, criminals and drugs are slipping in too, unchecked.
Our guests have been covering the border, illegal immigration, and the cartels for years, both in law enforcement and as reporters—Michael Yon, Jaeson Jones, and Victor Avila. They join us to unpack the border crisis and reveal the layers of this emergency.
