On Tuesday, Border Patrol agents reported finding a 5-year old girl from Guatemala wandering alone by the border wall near San Ysidro, California. According to Border Patrol, the agents came upon the little girl sometime on Monday morning.
Border Patrol agents also said they witnessed the girl being abandoned and were able to rescue her before any harm could come to her.
They reported her to be in good health but could find no contact information with her for any family or guardian living in the U.S.
#BorderPatrol agents encountered a 5-yr-old girl wondering alone along the border. The most vulnerable populations are being exploited for financial gain. Thankfully this child was encountered before any harm could befall her.

Since President Joe Biden took office, the situation at the southern border has continued to deteriorate. As Trump-era policies were rolled back, the more porous the border became.
A report from the Washington Post says that the Biden administration has tied the hands of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, and essentially rendered the agency useless due to new immigration policy.

VP Harris Goes To Guatemala
Vice President Kamala Harris made her first trip abroad as Vice President to Guatemala for what is described as a fact-finding mission to discover the “root causes” of illegal immigration from countries know as the “northern triangle” in Central America. Those countries are Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador.
Republicans and other critics of the Biden administration say the root causes of the border crisis are Joe Biden’s insistence on rolling back every bit of Trump-era immigration policy, even policies that appeared to be working.
Almost immediately after taking office, Biden ended construction of the border wall and ended the “Remain in Mexico” policy. Biden also encouraged Congress to pass legislation that would create a pathway to citizenship for those in the country illegally.
Harris received a less than enthusiastic welcome to Guatemala. Protesters with signs that read “Kamala Go Home,” and even some that read “Trump Won” were stationed outside the presidential palace.
Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei has put the blame for the crisis squarely on Joe Biden. He also said that he and Vice President Harris, “are not on the same side of the coin” regarding immigration.
Giammattei continued, “We asked the United States government to send more of a clear message to prevent more people from leaving.” He added that Biden’s message changed after he became president, “The message changed too: ‘We’re going to reunite families, we’re going to reunite children.’ The very next day, the coyotes were here organizing groups of children to take them to the United States.”
While children are being trafficked and kidnapped, women are being raped, cartels are making millions of dollars a day. The VP of the United States just laughs when asked when she’s going down to the Border to address the crisis. People voted for this.

Children Continue To Be Found Traveling Alone
Last month a horrible video came to light of a 5-year-old boy screaming not to be left alone as he is abandoned along the border.
In April, a 10-year old boy was found traveling alone after the group he was with disappeared. In May, five children, ages, seven, five, three, two, and eleven months old were found in extreme heat conditions along the Texas-Mexico border.
Kamala Harris hasn’t been to Europe, she hasn’t been to Australia but we don’t have an Australian border crisis or a European border crisis.
We have a crisis on the southern border.
