Border Patrol Reports Increase in Bangladesh Nationals

Border patrol agents in Laredo are seeing a growing number of Bangladesh nationals crossing into the U.S. -- 122 so far this year.

While the left insists only Mexicans and Central Americans are coming to look for work, Chris Cabrera with the National Border Patrol Council says he's seen people from all over the world breach our southern border.

“We've seen that all over the southwest border, whether it be an influx of Haitians out toward California, Bangladesh in Laredo, we get a lot of Chinese nationals and Indian nationals here in Texas,” he says.

Cabrera says they use the same Cartels and coyotes to get into the U.S.

“If you have the money they'll get you across one or the other, whether it's you turning yourself in to take advantage of catch-and-release, or if you pay enough they'll do their best to get you around, because money is what makes the world go round.”

The uptick in Bangladesh nationals shows there is a clear pipeline from the Middle East through Mexico.

“The tags in their clothing, we can tell a lot about the country of origin, whether it's where they're from or a country they've traveled though just by some of the stuff they leave behind,” says Cabrera.  “It's amazing, some of those countries you would never even think of coming through the southern border.”
