As Republican and Democrat candidates debate their positions on immigration reform and the federal government continues to claim that there is no real crisis, border states struggle to deal with the day to day reality of illegal aliens entering the United States from Mexico.

Now, the state of Texas is faced with attempts by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection Agency (CBP) to spin the recent arrests of three Mexican nationals as business as usual.

The three sexual predators, including two who were convicted of sexual assaults on a child, were apprehended by Laredo Sector Border Agents as they attempted to cross into Texas, but the federal agency (CBP) chose words carefully in crafting a press release about the arrests, saying only, “Laredo Sector Border Patrol Agents Arrest Three Male Subjects with Criminal Records.”

Omitted from the press release were the words, “illegal alien” and “criminal alien” as the federal agency described the deported sexual predators as “undocumented immigrants.”

The media department of the federal agency deliberately chose politically correct language in describing both the illegal aliens and the crimes they were convicted of prior to their deportation back to Mexico.

The three Mexican nationals were arrested in separate incidents over a period of several days.

One had been convicted in Oklahoma of sexual child abuse, another of sexual intercourse with a minor in California, and the third convicted of aggravated sexual assault in an unnamed state.

Some media outlets have pointed out CBP efforts to minimize the seriousness of the crimes previously deported aliens have been convicted of as part of an effort to “humanize” dangerous criminals.

Of more concern is the ability of these repeat offenders who repeatedly re-enter the U.S. as soon as they are returned to Mexico.

Shawn Moran, is the vice president of the union of U.S. Border Patrol agents, the National Border Patrol Council, issued this statement: “When an order of deportation is reinstated, it’s little more than a glorified voluntary return, resulting in the illegal alien simply being returned back to Mexico without having to see a judge.”
