CNN: Title 42 Battle ‘Fodder’ for Smugglers, ‘Misinformation’ on Facebook

News & Politics

Continuing the liberal media’s full-throated activism for open borders on Wednesday morning, CNN’s Rose Flores was on CNN This Morning warning that the legal battle over Title 42 would become “fodder for human smugglers.” She also noted that illegals flooding the region were surprised that they need documentation to enter the United States, blaming it on “misinformation” they were getting from Facebook.

Before getting into that, Flores was asked by anchor Poppy Harlow if the illegals in El Paso would like for President Biden to visit them and help bring attention to the border crisis:

Do you think additional attention on that would be helpful? I wonder what they want. What do the migrants that you’ve spoken to want in terms of focus from the federal government if they talk about that?

Flores said that some didn’t know Title 42 existed and their primary “focus is getting food for their children, is getting shelter for their children, and getting out of this border area so they can work in the United States.”

Almost as if it was unfair, Flores lamented that “there is a lot of confusion about some of the basic processes” the U.S. has in place for immigration. She explained that “the laws are different” in Central and South America. “In some countries, you can enter the country and begin working. When they realize that here in the United States you need documentation, it surprises them,” she stated.

She began to fret that the Supreme Court’s decision to prolong Title 42 would be used to fuel “misinformation” about the border being open:

And especially because there’s so much misinformation in some of these countries and this back and forth with Title 42 is really only giving fodder for human smugglers. Because I can’t tell you how many migrants I talked to who say they truly believe, in their heart of hearts, that the U.S. border is open because that’s what they learn in their communities, that’s what they read on Facebook, that is what their understanding is.

The idea that the border isn’t open is misinformation from CNN. We know upwards of only a third of people are returned to Mexico or other countries. NBC News has even admitted that illegals were coming because they know of Biden’s open borders policy.

“That’s why they risk everything, only to find out it’s all a lie,” Flores continued. She went on to blame Title 42 for women getting raped. “I’ve interviewed women on the Mexican side of the border who said they’ve been kidnapped, they’ve been raped after they’ve been expelled from the United States under Title 42,” she proclaimed.

And she concluded by decrying “the mixed messaging on the United States, while Democrats and Republicans keep fighting and not deciding and Congress doesn’t pass immigration reform, its fodder for human smugglers.”

CNN’s misinformation about open borders was made possible because of a lucrative sponsorship from Subway. Their contact information is linked.

POPPY HARLOW: You know, Rose. I wonder. We ask a lot of lawmakers – yesterday I asked one of the key officials in El Paso, do you want the President to come to the border? Do you think additional attention on that would be helpful? I wonder what they want. What the migrants that you’ve spoken to want in terms of focus from the federal government, if they talk about that? If that would be beneficial to them, are they focused on the immediate need of shelter, food, warmth?

ROSE FLORES: You know, there’s a mixture because I think some of them are aware of the politics. They’re aware of Title 42. Some of them are not aware of Title 42 and really their focus is getting food for their children, is getting shelter for their children, and getting out of this border area so they can work in the United States.

And, Poppy, I got to say, there is a lot of confusion about some of the basic processes. Some of these individuals coming from Central and South America, the laws are different. In some countries you can enter the country and begin working. When they realize that here in the United States you need documentation, it surprises them.

And especially because there’s so much misinformation in some of these countries and this back and forth with Title 42 is really only giving fodder for human smugglers. Because I can’t tell you how many migrants I talked to who say they truly believe, in their heart of hearts, that the U.S. border is open because that’s what they learn in their communities, that’s what they read on Facebook, that is what their understanding is.

And so, imagine their surprise when they sell everything they own, they trek their kids through a dangerous jungle. A lot of them told me, they smell death in the jungle that between Central and South America in the Darian Gap. Those are the conditions that are trekking their children because they strongly believe – these human smugglers – that this is their chance to enter the United States, this is their chance at the American dream.

That’s why they risk everything, only to find out it’s all a lie. That they might be expelled, that they might be deported, that they might be expelled into a very dangerous cartel-ridden northern Mexico City where they could be kidnapped.

I mean, there are records. The Human Rights Watch has been keeping records of just how many migrants have been kidnapped, extorted, attacked violently since the Biden administration took office. Their records show more than 13,000 instances and I’m sure they aren’t the only ones. I mean, I’ve interviewed women on the Mexican side of the border who said they’ve been kidnapped, they’ve been raped after they’ve been expelled from the United States under Title 42.

So, it is so complicated. And part of the problem is all of the mixed messaging on the United States, while Democrats and Republicans keep fighting and not deciding and Congress doesn’t pass immigration reform, its fodder for human smugglers. And the people caught in the middle are the migrants that you see behind me sleeping on the street in El Paso, Texas, thinking this is their shot at the American dream.
