Homeland Security Confirms Venezuela Sending ‘Violent Criminals’ to US, According to GOP Rep

The Department of Homeland Security has reportedly confirmed that the Venezuelan government is releasing violent criminals from their prisons and sending them to the United States.

GOP Rep. Troy Nehls of Texas tweeted Sunday: “DHS confirms that Venezuela is emptying prisons and sending violent criminals to our southern border.”

“President Trump warned us about this years ago,” Nehls added.

Fox News contributor Sara Carter, who has reported extensively on the border, responded to Nehl’s tweet: “This is exactly what I warned about. We are being exploited by all our opponents in Biden’s chaotic, single-minded border policy.”

When Donald Trump announced his presidential candidacy in 2015, he said the US had become “the dumping ground for everyone else’s problems.”

“They bring drugs. They bring crime. They are rapists. And some, I suppose, are good people,” he said.

Nehls’ tweet came the same day Breitbart reported that a DHS intelligence report obtained by US Border Patrol agents instructed them to be on the lookout for Venezuelan convicts.

“The report … indicates that the Venezuelan government, led by Nicolás Maduro Moros, is deliberately freeing inmates – including some convicted of murder, rape and extortion,” the news agency said.

Is the Biden administration a threat to national security?

Randy Clark, the author of the Breitbart article, is a 32-year Border Patrol veteran who has directed operations at nine Border Patrol stations in the Del Rio, Texas sector, according to his byline.

A Customs and Border Protection source told Clark that Maduro’s release of convicts recalls a similar action by Cuban dictator Fidel Castro during the Mariel Boat Lift in 1980.

The source said it was nearly impossible to identify Venezuelan convicts among thousands of illegal migrants.

Between October 2021 and July 2022, “more than 130,000 Venezuelan migrants were found having entered the United States illegally,” Breitbart reported, citing CBP statistics.

By the end of August, over 2.1 million migrants had been encountered at the southwest border in fiscal 2022, setting a new record.

That’s up from about 1.7 million in fiscal 2021 and 458,000 in fiscal 2020, the final year of Trump’s presidency.

The Patriot Project has reached out to DHS and CBP for comment, but has received no response at the time of publication.
