According to a source within CBP, a recent intelligence report from the Department of Homeland Security said that the Border Patrol received orders for officers to hunt for Venezuelan prisoners who have been allowed to enter the country. According to the study, which Breitbart Texas has examined, the Venezuelan government, led by Nicolás Maduro Moros, deliberately releases prisoners, including some who have been found guilty of murder, rape, and extortion.
Agents should be aware that the released inmates had been spotted within migrant caravans heading from Tapachula, Mexico to the border of the United States as recent as July, according to the intelligence assessment. The measure is reminiscent of a similar action performed by Cuban dictator Fidel Castro during the Mariel boat lift in the 1980s, according to the source, who was not allowed to speak to the media.
According to the report, it was widely known among migrants trying to travel to the U.S. in a caravan in July that a large number of Venezuelan migrants in the group were convicts and included violent criminals. However, it is unclear whether the released convicted criminals were traveling as an unified group.
The report makes no mention of the possibility that the release of the prisoners, knowing they would travel to the United States, was a deliberate geopolitical action meant to have an influence on American national security. The Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (SEBIN), Venezuela’s version of the CIA, may have had a hand in the planned releases, according to the report, which also admits this information gap.
According to the source, it is nearly impossible to locate Venezuelans who have criminal histories there. The source claims that the majority of the thousands of Venezuelan migrants who turn themselves in along the U.S.-Mexico border each day are being allowed to enter the country. The insider claims that there is no way to access criminal databases in Venezuela without strong diplomatic ties.
We can only assume, and it doesn’t work very well, unless we capture someone who freely informs us they have committed a violent crime in Venezuela, the insider told Breitbart. They “are almost certainly going to be released.”
Unknown numbers have reportedly already been released into the American interior to seek refuge, according to the source.
Between October 2021 and July 2022, more than 130,000 migrants from Venezuela were discovered after crossing the border illegally, according to CBP. Less than 5,000 people were detained throughout the entire Fiscal Year 2020. This is a growth of around 3,000 percent. Single groups of hundreds of predominantly Venezuelan migrants enter the country every day in one Border Patrol Sector in Texas.
The report makes no mention of the releasees’ location or final destination. Republican governors of Texas and Florida started sending migrants, especially Venezuelans, to Chicago, New York City, and Washington D.C. because they were frustrated with the rise in the number of migrants crossing the southwest border. Last Monday, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis organized charter flights from Texas to Martha’s Vineyard for 50 refugees, primarily from Venezuela. Soldiers from the National Guard promptly transported the migrants from the affluent island city to the nearby Joint Base Cape Cod
