Lara Logan: We Don't Have Illegal Immigration Anymore, "We Just Have Regular And Irregular Waves Now"

|

FOX News correspondent Lara Logan said on Friday that the United States doesn't have illegal immigration anymore, we just have waves and irregular waves of migrants, calling it "part of the plan." Logan said she has spent time with the horse patrol unit and called them "family men" with a sense of compassion.

"I've spent time with the horse patrol unit," Logan said. "I have ridden some of these horses. I can tell you these are family men. And they want to deal with everyone with compassion. I have seen it over and over. And this is the absolute throwing under the bus. But it means much more than that, right? Because what is the strategy here? They have decriminalized crossing the border illegally without addressing the law. And bypassing Congress. They have taken away all the power of the enforcement agencies in order to do their jobs. And they've done that because this is in line with the United Nation's global compact of safe, orderly migration."

"We don't have illegal migration, we just have regular and irregular waves now," Logan said.


LARA LOGAN: What they have done here with the horse patrol, they didn't just take away, you know, these agents and throw them under the bus. They actually attacked the very heart and soul, the symbol of the border patrol for as long as that agency has been alive, which I think is over 100 years now, right? Because it has always been the symbol of border patrol. And what they're doing by demonizing this, and convicting agents before -- they all know that these are wild mustang horses that you use open reins, they know nobody was whipped. And the same old tired tactic that just seems to work over and over for them, with a certain sector of the population, who are blinded, willfully blinded, or ideologically blinded or just don't know any better. They are falling for it. This has got nothing to do with slavery. Nothing to do with black and white. It has nothing to do with race.

I've spent time with the horse patrol unit. I have ridden some of these horses. I can tell you these are family men. And they want to deal with everyone with compassion. I have seen it over and over. And this is the absolute throwing under the bus. But it means much more than that, right? Because what is the strategy here? They have decriminalized crossing the border illegally without addressing the law. And bypassing Congress. They have taken away all the power of the enforcement agencies in order to do their jobs. And they've done that because this is in line with the United Nation's global compact of safe, orderly migration.

We don't have illegal migration, we just have regular and irregular waves now. There was an intrepid young reporter at the border. He found a lot of the I.D. cards that have been discarded. He found that although these people are Haitian and I reported on this from other sources, they are telling the agents they've been living in Chile and Brazil and other places. Many of their children were born in those countries. They are citizens of those countries. And all birth certificates and I.D. documents are all dumped before they cross the border. Why is that?

And by the way, guess what else was there? There is a handy manual that the United Nations wrote that teaches you how to get across all these different countries to reach the United States safely and securely. Why is the United Nations telling people how to migrate to the U.S.? Why is there an app that goes with that book that's been out for a few years telling them the same. Why is the Biden administration putting U.N. monitors on our southern border to monitor our own law enforcement? Those are the questions that we're missing when we get caught up in these fake scandals that they create.
