Venezuela Dumping Zone

We all giggled at the Branco cartoon that came out a few days ago about Venezuela dumping prisoners into the US. But did we know the reality of the problem? Venezuela, Nicaragua, and Cuba are not sending their best and brightest to America – they are sending prisoners, many of them violent offenders.

An intelligence report issued by DHS instructed Border Patrol agents to be on the lookout for Venezuelan prisoners that were deliberately released and encouraged to come to America. Some were convicted of rape, murder, and extortion.

The intelligence report warns agents the freed prisoners have been seen within migrant caravans traveling from Tapachula, Mexico toward the U.S.-Mexico border as recently as July…

The report does not state whether the released prison inmates were traveling as a cohesive group but does state it was commonly shared knowledge among migrants traveling to the United States within a caravan in July that many of the Venezuelan migrants in the group were convicts and included hardened criminals.

The report does not specify that the release of the convicts — understanding they would head to the United States — could be a purposeful geopolitical move specifically intended to impact U.S. national security. Another information gap cited in the report acknowledges the unknown role the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (SEBIN), Venezuela’s equivalent to the CIA, may have played in the deliberate releases.

The source says the task of identifying Venezuelans who have criminal records in their home country is nearly impossible. Of the thousands of Venezuelan migrants surrendering along the U.S.-Mexico border daily, most, according to the source, are being released into the United States.  Breitbart Texas

The situation prompted Rep Troy Nehls and 13 other Republicans to send a letter to DHS Secretary Mayorkas.

“As a result of the Biden Administration’s disastrous border policies, it is unknown how many of the violent Venezuelan prisoners have been released into the interior of the U.S., as identifying Venezuelans with criminal records is nearly impossible unless the individual admits their records to U.S. authorities. This will undoubtedly put our country in grave danger.” from the Letter (The Epoch Times)
