Migrants Leave Piles of Discarded Clothing, Trash in Their Wake at the Border

Migrants Leave Piles of Discarded Clothing, Trash in Their Wake at the Border

“I would say there was more trash than clothes, but by the time we were done, we had 17 bags full of trash and clothes”

One of the often unmentioned casualties of the border crisis is the environment. The massive groups of migrants crossing the border leave piles of clothing and trash as they go.

Where are all the ‘green’ Democrats who claim to care about the environment?

The mess is even showing up in people’s yards.

From KFOX News:

Migrants show up at Lower Valley homes, leave behind clothes

Some residents who live in El Paso’s Lower Valley near the border highway are concerned after they said migrants started showing up at their homes after crossing into El Paso.

People told KFOX14 that piles and piles of clothing and other toiletries were being left behind in an alleyway near people’s backyards.

“They’ll leave their wet clothes and then they’ll change into dry clothes, and they usually head west,” said Charlie De La Rosa, whose backyard is just a few hundred feet away from the border wall.

De La Rosa has been dealing with the migrants firsthand for several years, but it’s not until recently that the number of migrants showing up near his backyard has gone up.

De La Rosa showed KFOX14 the narrow alleyway migrants would go to change.

“Some of the most interesting things that I found was an ID from Venezuela, toiletries backpacks full of toothbrushes towels,” said De La Rosa.

He says there have even been times when migrants jumped into his backyard.

“I haven’t had any problems with thievery or vandalism, but you know it could happen, always be prepared,” he added.

After the migrants leave, it’s up to De La Rosa and his neighbors to pick up the pieces.

“I would say there was more trash than clothes, but by the time we were done, we had 17 bags full of trash and clothes,” he said.

Take a look at this video from Bill Melugin:

More from the Guardian:

Border residents in Arizona and Texas have observed an increasing number of personal belongings left along the US side of the border wall in the last two years.

Usually people leave clothing and sundries, but items such as passports, birth certificates, police reports, and other confidential documents that could be crucial in proving asylum cases have been found abandoned, too.

On one trip to the dumpster, Quiroz, director of the AZ-CA Humanitarian Coalition migrant assistance group, came across a navy blue Haitian passport and Cuban passports just lying in the dirt, and he said he can’t begin to fathom why…

He has found rosaries, diaper bags, purses, airline ticket stubs and used face masks.

Even the Border Patrol Union is making the point about the left and the environment:

Those poor people can afford to just leave clothes behind like they have a line of credit at Macy’s.

    Textiles of the cheapest, shoddiest sort are now available to the poorest. Next time you see a video from, say, Haiti, look at the number of idiotic T-shirts with product logos on them, or look at the seacoast anywhere and you are likely to see the standard footwear of the semi-industrialized poor, the foam rubber flip-flop, in piles with the rest of the un0degradable detritus.

    In short, cheap clothing, especially in the tropics, is available to even those who may be starving to death.

    And ecological considerations aren’t at the front of their minds, I’m sure.

Wait till you see the horror they inflict on our nation – in every town, every city, in every way.

Secession is our only hope.

The lefties don’t care about the environment anymore only ‘climate change’. They swapped out objective facts for pie in the sky goals to meet their true aim; destroy capitalism by issuing crippling regulations.

The trash is an old, old story.
Sometimes, the trash is even dead humans.

Coming to your neighborhood: Polio, tuberculosis, smallpox, and many other infectious diseases.

Couple this along with whales dying from wind turbines and you begin to see Leftists don’t care about the environment, and only care about protecting their sorry religion of Earth worship.

Leftists never cared about the environment. Leftists only use environmentalism for political aims (though mostly for insane, nihilistic destruction of modern society). They destroyed the logging industry with an owl that no leftist could even identify or care about and that matters absolutely not one whit to anything. They destroyed California farming and farmers over the Delta Smelt, again, not caring one bit about a fish that you couldn’t find a handful of leftists who could even recognize or describe. But they push asinine windmill farms that are death mills for the nation’s most important and rarest birds. They push offshore windmills that are causing the ocean to puke up whales and other sea mammals by the boatload to die and rot on the beaches. Leftists don’t care. Greenpeace can’t be bothered by schools of beached whales – Greenpeace is pushing for the offshore windmills to kill more whales and marine life, all while destroying our electric grid and modern society at the same time!! Win-Win!

Leftists don’t care about anything. They are insane, self-hating nihilists. Truly insane. And dangerous. These are not people who can be rationally dealt with in any fashion.

    No. They care about one thing: their own power. Leftism is a desire, an obsession, with power over others. It it their goal, their purpose, their raison d’être. If they were merely insane then they wouldn’t be responsible for what they do. In their own way they’re rational, but only in the sense that their actions are understandable in that regard.

    Every leftist is a mini-tyrant.

Silly wabbit, it was never about “the environment.”

It was, and is, about subjugation and control over the population. They want you to be poor, hungry, and in deprivation – you’ll own nothing, and be “happy.”

Send them to Democrat shit holes. Make it Democrats problems and let them suffer the consequences of their actions. Democrats voting in Democrat blocks dont change anything that way.

someone file a lawsuit requiring an environmental impact study on the effects to the flora and fauna, then find a snail darter or some other endangered critter (or plant one), then sue the EPA and Corps of Engineers for not protecting the shoreline of our border. the left would be doing these things if everyone crossing was going to vote republican some day.

I am sick of the fact that nobody ever discusses specifically why there are so many willing to risk everything to get into the US.

None of our “leaders” ever attempt to hold to account the countries that people are fleeing in such numbers–Mexico and other countries of Central America and, to a lesser extent, South America. Never mind places like Africa or Haiti.

The fact is even a life underground, working the cash economy and risking deportation every day in the US is preferable to the conditions they are fleeing.

I’d like to see some sort of political retaliation for this mass migration, though I can’t imagine in this hot take what that might be.

Illegals are only concerned about the free stuff that the Biden Administration is passing out.

Like the

Soros-backed radical leftists and illegals could care less about the environmental or socio-economic impact of unrestricted border access.

Recent reports put the number of crossers at 10,000 per day., excluding “got aways’.” I will never believe that all of these individuals are seeking asylum.

Those who advocate for unrestricted access are bent on destroying the United States.

That looks remarkably like the Washington Mall after Jon Stewart’s rally for sanity & etc.

You know, Stewart’s rally that absolutely was not a counter to the immediately prior Beck rally. (Are we tired of his clown nose on / clown nose off BS, yet?) The one that left the Mall cleaner than before it started.
