SAN DIEGO - A loophole is allowing hundreds of immigrants across the Mexico border in to the United States.This is one of the dirty little secrets that is known primarily to immigration lawyer. If you want to cross the border into the USA, get a visa, or get a green card, there are unpublished key words and loopholes that can make the process a whole lot easier or harder. There are certain kinds of stories that the authorities tend to believe without verification. An experienced (and crooked) immigration lawyer can help with those stories, because you are not likely to guess them on your own.
Immigrants are being taught to use "key words and phrases" to be allowed to enter and stay in the country.
Just this past Monday, Border Patrol agents say about 200 people came through the Otay Crossing claiming a quote: "credible fear" of the drug cartels.
So many were doing this that they had to close down the processing center and move the overflow by vans to another station.
"They are being told if they come across the border, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they will be allowed into the country," said a person who did not want to be identified on camera. "We are being overwhelmed."
Pete Nunez, former U.S. Attorney and immigration expert says, "This will swamp the system."
