The Biden administration has been repeatedly called upon to secure the southern border. The consequences of having an open border involve fentanyl coming into the country, migrants making the dangerous journey to enter the United States, and Border Patrol officials being overwhelmed.

Most of the heartless looters busted in hurricane-ravaged Florida were illegal immigrants, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Tuesday — as he said he’d like to “drag them out by the collars” and “send them back to where they came from.”

The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) says human smuggling attempts by aircraft are becoming more common in the border state.

Over the last 30 days, Texas DPS has stopped three human smuggling attempts via plane at different airports in the same area of the Rio Grande Valley, according to Texas Highway Patrol Staff Lieutenant Christopher Olivarez.

A Massachusetts father and son pair of restaurant owners in the Boston area were arrested Tuesday in connection with an alleged human smuggling operation in which victims were allegedly forced to work in the establishments to pay off their debt.

The leaders of Hungary, Austria and Serbia met Monday in Budapest to find solutions on how to stem the increasing number of migrants arriving in Europe, among them many young men from India.

The three leaders agreed to take joint action to control the new arrivals along the migration route that leads through Serbia.

Austrian Chancellor Karl Nehammer told reporters after the meeting that the joint action plan would include increased police cooperation along the borders as well as supporting Serbia when it comes to deporting migrants back to their home countries.
