Illegal Immigrant ‘Cheat Sheets’ Found At Border

“Cheat sheets” have been found by U.S. law enforcement officers along the border. They’re used to teach illegal immigrants what to say so they won’t be deported from the United States.

The notes are believed to be passed out by human trafficking groups, according to The Blaze.

“It’s proof they are told what to say,” said a Department of Homeland Security official. Most of the time, the sheets get “destroyed or thrown away before illegal aliens are apprehended.”

Some of the questions are “Who did you live with?” with the answer, “My aunt, but she crossed the border.”

“Where does your father live?” The answer says, “I don’t know him or even his name.”

They also try to play the sympathy card with children. “Somebody told you that if you brought a minor child into the United States you can stay.”

“Why did you abandon your country?” has many answers to choose from: “Because of poverty and misery,” “You’re in fear of your government and afraid to live in your country” and “You’re afraid of extortion from Maras [MS-13 gang].”

Border patrol agents in Texas said that many illegal immigrants have similar answers about having “credible fear” so they won’t be deported. Because there are so many immigrants, it’s getting harder to deport them. (RELATED: Letter: Boehner Blames Obama For ‘Overwhelming’ Border Flood)

“Several years ago, we would hold illegal aliens until their court date,” the DHS official said. “We didn’t have this huge crisis when they knew they couldn’t get away and were being held. Now we let everyone go because we have no space — the administration also makes it impossible to do our job and deport them.”
