An investigative news outlet has acquired internal law enforcement notifications indicating widespread suspicion of criminal activity by illegal Romanian migrants in the nation illegally, some of whom came over the southern border.
The law enforcement notifications, which include the states of New York, Pennsylvania, and Florida, cautioned of Romanian nationals who are wanted for deportation due to their alleged involvement in financial crimes and their unlawful presence in the US. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) statistics show that in fiscal year 2022, there were 5,895 Romanian migrants encountered by Border Patrol agents along the southern border, an increase from 4,029 in 2021 and 266 in 2020.
One ICE employee explained to the outlet that Romanians often submit fictitious hotels or other housing locations when they are required to report to the agency.
Two Romanian nationals were wanted by the Florida sheriff’s office in February after they infiltrated the southern border. One of the men reportedly tricked a store owner by paying just $3,600 of the $9,600 required to obtain eight gold coins.
According to an official alert, in April, Florida law enforcement pulled over a car containing two Romanian nationals who were found to be in the U.S. illegally. The individuals were allegedly in possession of phony credit cards, forged passports, covert cameras, skimming equipment, a thumb drive, an ATM pin pad cling device, and $4,000 in cash.
The vehicle contained a device that reportedly had bank information belonging to thousands of victims.
A report from Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton shows that he sued the Biden administration last month to overturn a regulation that provides illegal immigrants with incentives to use a smartphone application to plan their unlawful entry into the United States.
Illegal aliens are told to download the CBP One app from either Google Play or the Apple App Store, which is accessible to foreign nationals in Northern Mexico.
Attorney General Ken Paxton stated that the federal government has made it plain that illegal immigrants must be deported from the country.
