VIDEO: Migrants Enter U.S. Through 114 Gates Welded Open Along Arizona Border

“We thought the agents were going to tell us something. But we just walked in.”

The border is literally open. If you watched Parks and Recreation, then you would know this would be a time when Chris Traeger’s use of “litrally” is spot on.

Literally. Open. The New York Post has a video of about 50 migrants literally walking across the border.

Nobody stopped them. Nobody questioned them.

From The New York Post:

Thousands of migrants are flowing across the US border in Arizona every day — literally through open floodgates that have made the Tucson post the busiest point of illegal entry into the country, The Post has learned.

US officials have inexplicably welded open 114 massive gates along the Arizona border to allow water to flow freely during the annual monsoon season and for the migration of an endangered species of antelope, officials said.

But the move is also letting an average of 1,400 migrants from as far away as China casually walk into the country daily — with overwhelmed and outnumbered border agents practically helpless to stop them.

“We thought the agents were going to tell us something,” one Ecuadorean migrant said. “But we just walked in.”

A woman from Cuba described it as “so easy” compared to the hard “journey through Mexico.”

Texas has migrants, mostly from Mexico, Central America, and South America.

Tucson has a mix including migrants from those places but also India, Eqypt, China,

The 12-foot wide gates have supposedly been open for two months. Motorcycles can drive through one while buses on the Mexico side drive migrants to the gates and let them out.

One person said several federal agencies ordered the gates open:

Border Patrol sources said the call to open the gates came from several federal agencies, including the National Park Service.

But because the monsoon season started late this year, they remained open for weeks before there was any rain — allowing migrants a dry path into the US.

“We tried to shut the gates but the order came down that we had to leave them open,” one source said. “You wouldn’t leave the front door of your house open in a bad neighborhood.”

The gates run along a 36-mile stretch near Lukeville, Arizona.

The Tucson region has become the busiest crossing area from Mexico into the U.S.

On August 5, NBC News reported that over 1,300 migrants cross into the Tucson sector on average.

Tucson witnessed 42,561 migrant crossings in July. The area only had 27,294 in June:

“We haven’t seen this many migrants since about 2008,” said Adam Isacson, director for defense oversight at the advocacy group Washington Office on Latin America. “With the end of Title 42, in a way that nobody oversaw, it seems to come back to Tucson.

“What you’re seeing is a lot of large groups who want to turn themselves in,” Isacson said. “Tucson has also traditionally been where smugglers concentrate Mexicans and Central Americans who don’t want to be detected. Now they’re seeing 100 people at a time who are not running away.

“It’s really becoming an epicenter,” he said. “This is big.”

Rancher Jim Chilton said he “regularly sees migrants cross his 50,000 acres of land.” He described the border entrance as “very rough.” He also said the situation has “gotten worse.”

Those who do not go through the welded gates can find themselves in cages at Arizona’s Ajo Border Patrol station, located two hours west of Tucson.

However, the border patrol has no choice. The stations and border patrol are overwhelmed. They have no room. They have no resources. It’s a mess:

Understaffed border agents can do little to stop the flood.

“Three nights ago, a big group of migrants were on the Mexican side,” one source said. “There were two agents on ATVs [all-terrain vehicles] and one line agent trying to stop them from entering. The agents blocked the gates with their quad [bikes]. The cartel guy just started pushing people.

“They rushed the agents. You had people climbing over quads. You had people pushing the agents. Not a single one got charged.”

Welded open.

Deliberate destruction of our country.

The imagery here is undeniable and will make a lasting impression on those still willing to see. Either the open border zealots are confident of victory in ’24 or they are confident defeat in ’24. The only way this act, along with Biden selling off as scrap the unused border fence materials, makes any political sense is that they either believe no political price will be paid due to confidence in victory or they are trying to jam through as many illegals as possible before the tide turns in ’24.

    Don’t worry little d will take care of it, once he looks around and sees other people raising their hands over it

      Didn’t ‘small hands’ promise to fix this then fail to meet that promise? Pretty sure small hands promised a big beautiful wall along with making structural changes in diplomacy and domestic policy to preclude more illegal immigrants.

    The powers in charge are giving them great jobs they are taking from Americans…

      CommoChief in reply to wendybar. | August 24, 2023 at 8:04 pm

      Jobs both large and small with the goal of reducing labor costs. It’s simple supply and demand that even d/prog understand a decade and a half ago. Bill Clinton did or at least his campaign and policy implementation reflected it. Caesar Chavez understand it as did MLK. Big labor unions across the board used to get it.

      What changed? Money. As the GoP became more populist seeking to protect workers and ordinary taxpayers the big money interests began contributing to d/prog politicians who would oppose these efforts. At least a dozen current d/prog US Senators were on the side of border security and deportation a few years ago, so was Biden FWIW.

That’s a controlled border for a liberal. Not one can explain how this is humane to the US public.

A policy of hatred and spite because of the uniparty’s hatred for one man.

Anybody with a truck, generator, and either an angle grinder or a plasma cutter interested in UNwelding those gates open?

These are NOT ‘migrants’ they are Illegal Aliens Invaders.

    I prefer “hostile foreign invaders” as there are grounds for war with the countries they came from. If we were still a sovereign nation.

“The border is under control.”
Yes. Yes, it is.
Under the control of traitors to the United States.

Time to establish continuous bus shuttles from this location to New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Boston, and Washington DC.

The Left say the border is closed…. welding the doors open is the final in-your-face lie. But then we live in Post-Orwellian Times. Orwell was an optimist.

If Democrats win the White House next year, they’ll likely also take back the House and perhaps build on the Senate majority in spite of an unfavorable Senate map. In the first 12-months, they’ll nuke the filibuster, enact amnesty and pack the court, in that order. By 2030 – at the latest – all these people walking over our southern border will be voting.

With 20M or more new Democrats voting, they will have a permanent governing majority in no less than 24-states including TX, FL & GA.. America will be dunzo.

Stop using the Left’s language. Not migrants. Illegal aliens.

Biden and Mayorkas should be impeached over this.

This is a great Republican ad for 2024. Not much explanation needed.

    Subotai Bahadur in reply to Q. | August 24, 2023 at 3:42 pm

    Making the dubious assumption that any Republican has the inclination or cojones to run such an ad. I am not a betting man.

    Subotai Bahadur

And no one closed the doors

Our government is absolutely hostile to the American citizen and truly we must find the courage to act

It proves that the fence works, if they use the gates.

“The cartel guy just started pushing people.” Now why do you suppose a cartel guy was there? Would it be because the cartel makes several thousand per person? I have heard that hardly anyone crosses the border without the cartel’s approval. Why does the cartel have such a privilege status? Usually, the only guys that have that are the big donors.
