The Embassy of the United States issued a statement calling for reflection on those who risk their lives trying to enter illegally across the United States border.

“Do not undertake this dangerous journey that puts your life in danger,” requests the document in which it is admitted that the results of violating the controls of the ports of entry designated by its immigration authorities only have three possible exits, all indicators of “danger.”

According to the message issued under the spokesperson of Jonathan Mardo, attache of the Office of Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the support of smugglers for the illegal introduction could culminate in the “victimization of undocumented immigrants by organizations smuggling, the inconvenience of criminal prosecution, or the loss of life at sea or in the desert.”

In addition, it will also negatively affect the immigrant’s chances of remaining in North American territory.

“As immigration channels narrow, more people seek help from smugglers, who endanger the lives and safety of migrants in their increasingly risky efforts to evade border controls,” he texts.

The US immigration system makes it a crime to enter or attempt to enter without applying for admission at a port of entry designated by immigration officials. This can negatively affect an immigrant’s chances of remaining lawfully in the United States.

As immigration channels narrow, more people seek help from smugglers, who endanger the lives and safety of migrants in their increasingly risky efforts to evade border controls.

The journey’s dangers can be summed up in three possible outcomes:

  • The victimization of undocumented immigrants by smuggling organizations
  • The inconvenience of criminal prosecution
  • The loss of life at sea or in the desert

Do not undertake this dangerous journey that puts your life in danger.
