Former Panama Border Chief: UN Is Behind The Chaos At U.S.–Mexico Border

Authored by Darlene McCormick Sanchez via The Epoch Times

The former director of Panama’s border patrol told The Epoch Times that the United Nations’ migration agenda is behind the chaos at the U.S. southern border and that U.N. partners are making things worse instead of better.

Oriel Ortega, now a security and defense consultant to Panamanian President Laurentino Cortizo, said during a Feb. 22 interview that he saw a jump in migration in 2016, at the same time that more nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) moved into Panama.

That increase corresponded with the U.N.’s Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration meeting in 2016. Two years later, 152 nations—including Panama—voted in favor of the compact to manage global migration. The United States voted against it.

But under the U.N., the migration process has been anything but orderly, Mr. Ortega said.

It’s completely opposite right now,” he said through an interpreter.

Documents show that in 2023, a record 500,000 migrants traveled through the dense jungle known as the Darien Gap from Colombia into Panama. Migrants from around the world are flying into South and Central America to start their journey because countries such as Suriname and Ecuador don’t require a visa to enter. Their final destination is the United States.

The book “Weapons of Mass Migration: Forced Displacement, Coercion, and Foreign Policy,” written by Kelly Greenhill, suggests that weaker countries are using migration to destabilize their more powerful adversaries.

    Big Picture: Mayorkas alleged failure to control the southern border has so far led to the introduction of thousands of non-White migrants into the United States, according to his critics. Resources, programs, and public assistance set up to provide for so-called “asylum seekers,” have become stretched thin in major cities all across America, leading some to worry about the future of the nation’s stability.

    Mayorkas is believed to be no stranger to assisting non-White peoples in their journey into the United States. Before assuming his position in the Biden Cabinet, Mayorkas once sat on the board of the infamous Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), an NGO that regularly assists US-bound migrant caravans from South and Central America.

    “We at HIAS have been so blessed to have Ali Mayorkas on our board of directors, and are thrilled to have him nominated to be the next Secretary of Homeland Security…
