Ben Bergquam and Tai Decker, two independent journalists and documentarians, filmed their discoveries during an investigation into the Biden border crisis in Arizona, and they each expressed frustration with the massive amount of human suffering and human exploration they see as a result of open US borders.
There are moments of rising tensions between Bergquam and leftist activists who taught Bergquam and shone a bright light in his face to harm him.
Nonetheless, the two patriots continue in their reporting. As Bergquam and Decker approached the area, activists for the NGOs came to the car to bully the two reporters. They clearly identify Bergquam from his past work and then follow him around the campsite, clearly trying to intimidate him from reporting on what he sees.
The activists try to disrupt Bergquam’s broadcast with various means, including telling the invaders not to talk to him.
Bergquam and Decker gave their commentary and talked about the lack of any law enforcement in the area and the consequential increases in illegal immigration that are harming foreigners and the United States.
Decker identified the type of encampments seen at the wall as “guerrilla camps,” which are very similar to what has been detected in San Diego, California. Bergquam said that the encampments were being set up by enemies within the country who were aiding the Mexican cartel to invade the USA.
“Catholic Charities trains people to break asylum laws, invites them to the US, and requests $100 million in funding from the taxpayers to do,” Bergquam said as he panned the area showing the camps, fires, people covered with blankets that were covered with the words: Catholic Charites, and their logo.
As two English-speaking men approached and made vulgar motions to Bergquam and Decker, hostilities rose, and Bergquam said that the two men were inviting rapists to invade the US and harm women and children.
WHTM Harrisburg reported early in December on the migrant camps in San Diego:
ACUMBA SPRINGS, Calif. (Border Report) — Several migrant camps remain active in the mountains east of San Diego near the town of Jacumba Springs, California.
“The numbers are high over the past few weeks; I think we saw a peak of over 800 over Thanksgiving when people were staying for up to six days at a time,” said Attorney Erika Pinheiro of Al Otro Lado, a binational migrant advocacy group.
Pinheiro says the migrants showing up at the camps have no choice.
“These are people who by and large do not have access to the asylum system through ports of entry; you can only access asylum through the port of entry with a CBP One appointment, and that app is only available in English, Spanish, and Creole,” said Pinheiro. “As you can see by the people around us, many of these individuals are from China or other countries that don’t speak those languages.”
Pinheiro expects migrants to keep showing up at these camps unless President Joe Biden changes policy, allowing more asylum seekers to get processed at ports of entry.
“These asylum-seekers are dropped off here by organized crime groups, they cross the border, and they are forced to wait by Border Patrol, which tells them they will be deported if they leave these camps,” she said. “And it’s just become more chaotic because Border Patrol has reduced their physical presence in the camps.”
Through a statement, Border Patrol says it’s doing all it can.
“DHS continues to enforce United States immigration laws, expanding lawful pathways while strengthening enforcement consequences for those who cross our border unlawfully. Individuals and families without a legal basis to remain in the U.S. are subject to removal under CBP’s longstanding Title 8 authorities and are subject to a minimum five-year bar on reapplying for admission and potential criminal prosecution if they subsequently re-enter without authorization.
Pinheiro says the Border Patrol lacks of initiative. Still, she said, migrants are surviving thanks to the help from volunteers who provide food, water and even basic medical care.
But she worries with a drop in temperatures and other factors, asylum-seekers are in more danger than ever.
“A 13-year-old boy just died near one of these camps, and so I think it’s just a matter of time we see additional deaths in these camps unless something changes,” she said.
According to the Border Patrol, the boy was brought to the border boundary from Mexico and was already in need of medical attention.
“I heard maybe he had fallen or car accident, I honestly don’t know,” said Dr. Theresa Chang, a volunteer at the camp providing basic medical care for migrants.
She says was in the area last weekend when word of a boy needing help came down.
“You hear stories all the time about how dangerous the migration path is the migration journey is but to see it in person and to have the loss of life of someone who really had his whole future ahead of him is devastating,” chang said.
The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department put out a statement saying deputies responded to a call about a boy at the border who had been involved in a traffic accident south of the border:
“Deputies began their investigation and discovered the victim was injured in a vehicle accident while in Mexico. The victim was then taken to the border wall in the belief medical treatment would be received quicker than in Mexico. As deputies arrived at the scene, they discovered the victim had already been brought onto the U.S. side of the border and was being treated by medical personnel on scene. Despite not having any vital signs, medical personnel attempted CPR in an attempt to revive the juvenile. Unfortunately, the 13-year-old boy passed. The Medical Examiner’s office responded to the scene and took over the investigation.
