    CBP launches awareness campaign on realities of illegal migration

    CBP launches awareness campaign on realities of illegal migration

    Posted: 29 mins ago

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection launched a new ad campaign Friday, warning potential migrants from El Salvador, Honduras, Guatemala and Mexico against illegal immigration.

    After making the dangerous trek and paying thousands to unscrupulous smugglers, the migrants may be arrested by Border Patrol and swiftly deported.

    “The United States immigration law itself has not changed and those trying to cross the border without proper documents do not have "permission" and will be the subjects for immediate deportation under President Obama’s recently announced immigration guidelines,” according to the advertisement. “If anyone says or promises something different, please, do not believe them. Protect yourself!”

    Customs and Border Protection created the ad campaign to raise awareness about United States immigration policy and the heightened law enforcement presence on the U.S.-Mexico border.

    "This campaign is designed to inform potential migrants in Mexico and Central America on the realities of the journey north-smugglers have no respect for human life," said agency Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske, according to a news release from Customs and Border Protection. "It is crucial to be made aware of the facts and the immigration policies of the United States before risking their lives. They did not receive permits to stay."

    All four campaigns have an identical minute-long radio ad. The campaign also includes a 30-second video ad for Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador warning about the dangers of illegal immigration.

    Customs and Border Protection posted the Spanish-language ads at

    The campaign also includes posters with details about President Barack Obama’s immigration policy and plan to prioritize deportation for people without proper documentation.

    “These guidelines do not provide immigration benefits to people who are currently living outside the United States, who have recently entered the country or who now try to cross the border without documents,” according to the advertisement.

    Obama Admin. Launches Media Campaign To Deter Illegal Immigration

    by Caroline May

    The Obama administration is pushing another awareness campaign to attempt to deter illegal immigration from Central America and Mexico.

    Customs and Border Protection launched its “Know the Facts” campaign in Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras late last month to discourage people from illegally immigrating north.

    “This campaign is designed to educate would-be travelers in Central America and Mexico about the realities of the journey north—human smugglers have no regard for human life,” said CBP Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske said in the formal roll out of the campaign Friday.

    In recent months and years illegal immigrants from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras have flooded the U.S.-Mexico border believing they could stay in the U.S. and thinking that the “Notices to Appear” handed to them by immigration officials before being released into the interior of the U.S. were “permisos” or free passes.

    And while many of the family units and unaccompanied minors who entered the U.S. illegally have simply vanished into the interior of the country, the Obama administration is stressing in this campaign that there are no free passes into the U.S.

    “It is critical that they are aware of the facts behind U.S. immigration policies before risking their lives. There are no ‘permisos,’” Kerlikowske said.

    Last year, in response to the illegal immigration surge the administration launched a similar information campaign warning against making the journey. This year’s campaign includes Spanish-language audio, video, and pamphlet warnings for each of the four countries.

    Complicating matters this time, however, is a late July court ruling calling for an end to detention of illegal immigrant family units. Last week the Justice Department pressed U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee to reconsider her ruling.

    The Associated Press reported that in the court filings last week, the administration argued against the ruling and pointed out that an end to family detention “would heighten the risk of another surge in illegal migration,” by “incentivizing adults to bring children with them on their dangerous journey as a means to avoid detention and gain access to the interior of the United States.”

    Last year more than 68,400 family units and more than 68,541 unaccompanied minors were apprehended illegally entering the U.S. at the southern border. As of June 30, CBP reported apprehending 26,685 unaccompanied minors and 24,901 family units at the southern border.
