Democratic congresswoman, Rep. Veronica Escobar (TX) has been accused of sending her staff to Mexico to coach migrants on how to "exploit a loophole" to manipulate the asylum process in their favor when trying to the US, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials.

According to several CBP agents and the National Border Patrol Council’s El Paso chapter, Escobar sent sends staff who then try to find migrants that have been turned away from El Paso, Texas to Mexico "under the 'remain in Mexico' policy, then coaching them to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole letting them return to the U.S."

Evidence was shared by a senior union official who supported their claims, according to The Washington Examiner.

“What we believe is happening is Veronica Escobar’s office is going … to basically second-guess and obstruct work already done by the Border Patrol.”

But under the "remain in Mexico" policy of sending migrants back to Mexico to wait for their asylum claims to be considered - "anyone returned must be fluent in Spanish because they may have to reside in Mexico up to five years until a U.S. federal judge decides their asylum claim."

Officials alleged that Escobar's aides, who have actively sought interviews with thousands of migrants, are taking migrants back to the port of entry and lying to CBP officials, informing them they don't speak Spanish even though they spoke Spanish to the officials at an earlier date.

"What we’re hearing from management is that they’re attempting to return people, and the story was changed in Mexico, where a person who understood Spanish before now doesn’t understand — where a person who didn’t have any health issues before now has health issues," one union official stated.

"They went through and interviewed everybody, cherry-picked them, brought them back, and now are using them as tag lines."

"They’re going over there and manufacturing a lot of these issues."

Former federal immigration judge Mark H. Metcalf said that a criminal case could be brought against Escobar if she is found to be involved in the loophole scheme.

According to a DHS official, the Democrats "are furious" that migrants are not allowed to "await their court dates in the U.S., where they have the opportunity to disappear and slip into the interior never to be seen again."

On Sunday, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria said that President Donald Trump is right about the asylum system situation adding that fraud is rampant and the system is being abused.

Presidential candidate Cory Booker traveled to Mexico on Wednesday to escort five female asylum seekers into the United States.

The 2020 candidate crossed El Paso, Texas port of entry into Ciudad Juarez joined by immigrant rights attorneys and advocates to get five women fleeing domestic violence.

Also, Democrats like Beto O'Rourke, who once represented Escobar’s border district, also visited Ciudad Juárez to “shed light on the desperate circumstances those who are seeking asylum and refuge are fleeing, and the conditions these families and individuals are forced to endure when they’ve been turned away from our borders.”

Trump highlighted many of the problems on Twitter:

"The Democrats are allowing a ridiculous asylum system and major loopholes to remain as a mainstay of our immigration system. Mexico is likewise doing NOTHING, a very bad combination for our Country. Homeland Security is being sooo very nice, but not for long!"

"I want to give the Democrats every last chance to quickly negotiate simple changes to Asylum and Loopholes. This will fix the Southern Border, together with the help that Mexico is now giving us. Probably won’t happen, but worth a try. Two weeks and big Deportation begins!"

"Bipartisan Humanitarian Aid Bill for the Southern Border just passed. A great job done by all! Now we must work to get rid of the Loopholes and fix Asylum. Thank you also to Mexico for the work being done on helping with Illegal Immigration - a very big difference!"

"The Democrats should change the Loopholes and Asylum Laws so lives will be saved at our Southern Border. They said it was not a crisis at the Border, that it was all just “manufactured.” Now they admit that I was right - But they must do something about it. Fix the Laws NOW!"
