San Antonio officials scrambled this week to find French-speaking volunteers to help with hundreds of Congolese migrants arriving in the Alamo City.

“We didn’t get a heads up,” Interim Assistant City Manager Dr. Collen Bridger told KEN 5 after a group of 350 Congolese migrants arrived in the city unexpectedly. “When we called Border Patrol to confirm, they said, ‘yea another 200 to 300 from the Congo and Angola will be coming to San Antonio.'”

Bridger told the local CBS affiliate that they are looking for volunteers who can speak French. “If you speak primarily French and can come spend six, seven, eight hours, that would be really helpful,” Bridger explained.

The City of San Antonio apparently expected to be able to move the Congolese migrants along to Portland, Maine. “When we reached out to Portland Maine they said, ‘Please don’t send us any more. We’re already stretched way beyond our capacity,” Bridger stated. Instead, the City is now attempting to locate other localities that will accept these migrants.

South and central African migrants began illegally crossing the South Texas border on May 30 when 117 migrants from the Republic of the Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Angola crossed in the Del Rio Sector. By June 5, more than 500 African migrants had crossed illegally in this single Border Patrol sector, Breitbart News reported.

In a press call on Wednesday afternoon, Brian Hastings, U.S. Border Patrol Chief of Law Enforcement Operations, told reporters this was the first large group “ever recorded in Border Patrol history solely from Central and South Africa. We’ve never seen that demographic in a large group of that size before.”

Two weeks before the illegal crossings began in the Del Rio Sector, hundreds of African migrants gathered near an international bridge in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, to protest not being allowed entry into the U.S. through a legal port of entry, Breitbart News reported. The group complained that Cuban migrants are being given preferential treatment.

Since that time, multiple groups of African migrants, mostly family units, crossed in the same area in large numbers. On June 5, agents apprehended another group of 34 African migrants bringing the total to more than 500 in less than a week.

“The introduction of this new population places additional burdens on processing stations, to include language and cultural differences,” Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz said in a written statement. “Our agents continue to meet each new challenge as the ongoing humanitarian crisis evolves.”

And people want to blame weirdo antivaxxers for our health crisis problems. Don’t send them to Maine. Send them back to Africa. We’ve got 100 of thousands of uneducated unwashed illegal migrants coming every month. And we just let them stay while we’re expected to give them benefits for the rest of their lives. Housing. Free schooling. Food stamps. Etc etc etc.

The downfall of America will be uncontrollable immigration and those that support them. It may take 50 years. But it’s coming.

America has been dying for 40 years, at this point I don't think it can be salvaged.

What pisses me off is my daughter's fiance can't get in for two years because he has to wait for a visa. 

..... He has a BA, speaks five languages fluently and received multiple scholarships in University.

 

I told him to just walk across the border instead.

Meanwhile democrats don’t seem to give a single fuck about the issue and seem to support the growing problem.

Are there any non majority white countries you get called racist by a large part of the local population for saying they should enforce immigration laws? Do the Japanese do that to each other?

America sure has been destroyed a lot of times in its history. It's a wonder that any of us are able to post about it from the ashes.

Yeah pustak. Acknowledging the fact that millions of people are illegally coming here every year expecting a life time of social benefits makes people racist. No it doesn’t. You fucking moron.
