They will keep coming as long as they have incentives to do so and the border is open.
Why in the heck do so many on the left subscribe to Soros' cockamamie notion of "Open Borders?" A sure recipe for disaster. It id the same with the Cloward and Piven crazy notion of collapsing the system.

The US military conducted an air strike against al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Shabaab ...... the personification of Somali state failure... hard boyz on Tuesday, the first since President Joe The Big Guy Biden ...46th president of the U.S. SOld, boring, a plagiarist, fond of hair sniffing and grabbing the protruding parts of women, and not whatcha call brilliant... or is that an act?... took office, the Pentagon said.
The US military command for Africa (AFRICOM), in coordination with the Somali government, "conducted one Arclight airstrike ...KABOOM!... in the vicinity of Galkayo, Somalia today against al-Shabaab," Pentagon spokeswoman Cindi King told AFP.
The strike, 700 kilometers (430 miles) northeast of Mogadishu, targeted Shabaab Death Eaters, King said.
"A battle-damage assessment is still pending due to the ongoing engagement between al-Shabaab and Somali forces, however the command’s initial assessment is that no civilians were maimed or killed as a result of this strike," she added.
The strike is the first conducted by the US military in Somalia since January 19, when AFRICOM announced it had killed three Shabaab hard boyz in two strikes in Jamaame and Deb Scinnele.
Biden was inaugurated the next day. As soon as he arrived at the White House, he limited the use of drones against Death Eater groups outside US theaters of war.
That reversed the policy of his predecessor Donald Trump ...Perhaps no man has ever had as much fun being president of the US... , who had given the US military carte blanche in countries such as Somalia and Libya.
In March, Pentagon front man John Kirby said that any planned strikes against Death Eater groups outside Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq were now submitted to the White House before being carried out.
Drone strikes multiplied during Trump’s term, going from 11 in Somalia in 2015, to 64 in 2019 and 54 in 2020, according to the non-governmental group Airwars, which monitors civilian deaths in bombings around the world.
Just before he left office, Trump ordered the withdrawal of some 700 special forces soldiers who were deployed in Somalia to train and advise the Somali army.
[LIBYAREVIEW] On Monday, the Libyan television channel "218 News" claimed that Ottoman Turkish officers have installed an air defence and jamming system, inside the military manufacturing factory in the town of Bani Walid.
Sources told 218 that the Ottoman Turkish officers entered Bani Walid a few days ago, taking advantage of the operations carried out by the 444th Brigade, under the command of Mahmoud Hamza. The 444th Brigade is allegedly taking action without consulting any other security apparatus, and the government is supposedly unaware of these movements in Bani Walid.
The installation of the system comes within the framework of Ankara’s fear of any movements of the Libyan National Army (LNA) in Bani Walid.
In the same context, according to a leaked document, the EU is finalising plans for a military mission in Libya in order to compete for influence with other forces there, EUObserver reported.
The EU diplomatic service’s internal paper dated 1 July stated that Libya’s grinding of the peace processor required large-scale disarmament, demobilisation, and reintegration (DDR) of fighters, as well as a fundamental security sector reform (SSR).
"In this context, an EU military CSDP [Common Security and Defence Policy] engagement should ... be considered in order not to leave the entire field of activity in the military domain to third states," the statement read.
The paper did allude to The Sick Man of Europe Turkey ...just another cheapjack Moslem dictatorship, brought to you by the Moslem Brüderbund... , when it reported on a "third country" that had "continued denial of inspections" of suspected arms shipments to Libya, in violation of a UN embargo. The same country "maintains a strong military presence in Libya and provides training to selected armed forces in western Libya, especially the Coast Guard and Navy," it noted, after Turkey sent troops to Libya last year.
It explained that Turkey’s Defence Ministry has been tweeting about the interception of migrants colonists off of Libya’s coast, prompting fears that Ankara may gain further leverage over the EU by taking control of the central Mediterranean migration route, as well as the one it already controls via Greece.

[NATION.PK] Leader of Opposition in Sindh Assembly, Haleem Adil Sheikh has said that arrest of six cops of CIA police Jamshoro with the 65kg of chars by Rangers personnel from Bloody Karachi ...formerly the capital of Pakistain, now merely its most important port and financial center. It is among the largest cities in the world, with a population of 18 million, most of whom hate each other and many of whom are armed and dangerous... was the ample enough proof that police officials under the direct patronage by Chief Minister Sindh and IG police Sindh were doing the dirty business.
In a statement issued on Monday, he said that Mr Sarwar Rahupoto, the younger brother of Mr Skindar Ali Rahupoto, the PPP MNA from Jamshoro, was directly involved in that big scam.
Haleem Adil alleged that Rahupoto himself was involved in the shifting of the contraband from Jamshoro to Karachi but he was yet to be arrested. "This shows that CM and Bilawal Houses run through the money being earned through such criminal acts like drug pushing," he said and asked the PPP leaders to come up with a clear stance over the arrest and recovery of chars by Rangers personnel from a police van.
Al-Kadhimi began the meeting, according to a statement by his office, by noting that terrorism had proven their failure to gain a foothold as a result of the blows they received at the hands of our heroic armed forces, so they resorted to a path of meanness and defeat by targeting innocents at random, as the cowards have always condemned.
And he said: I offer my condolences to our sons, our brothers and our people in Sadr City, and let the families of the deaders know that retribution will pursue terrorism in every hole and every hiding place, and the bully boyz will not be safe on the land of Iraq.
He explained that the criminals, with their desperate attempts, wanted to create chaos, after detonating the electric power transmission towers, they went to indiscriminate killing and bombing among the safe people.
Al-Kadhimi directed that any commander or officer who is proven to have failed to perform his duty be held accountable, investigated and referred to the competent court, stressing on our security forces to remain the eye that never sleeps for the security and safety of Iraqis, and to mobilize intelligence work with all its energies, and with precise preemptive strikes, in order that terrorism has no sanctuary or incubator anywhere.
He also directed the redistribution of holding sectors for the security forces in the capital, Baghdad, in a way that increases the readiness of our units and their ability to confront terrorist and criminal schemes.
Al-Kadhimi also directed to provide urgent assistance in all its forms to the families of the victims, and for health personnel to mobilize all their energies in order to treat the injured.

Seems like things have been kicking up in the mid-east since January.
[Times of Israel] - The head of Military Intelligence on Tuesday said Israel is facing constant cyber threats and will respond to attacks as it does to any other type of aggression.
"Israel is under constant threat in the cyber dimension, and attacks are sometimes carried out against it. We are able to deal with most of the threats through advanced defense capabilities," Maj. Gen. Tamir Hayman said at a conference at Tel Aviv University.
Hayman said that like in other military theaters, defense alone is not sufficient and "additional steps must be taken to preserve Israel’s [tactical] superiority over our enemies."
[BenarNews] Government troops killed a suspected member of the Islamic State ...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that they were al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're really very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear western pols talk they're not really Moslems.... bully boy group’s Philippine branch and captured two others during an operation in southern Maguindanao province at the weekend, the military said Monday.
Soldiers were checking on reports about Dawlah Islamiyah-Hassan Group
...sometimes spelt Daulah Islamiyah, for some reason, which means Islamic State in the Philippines, whatever the words actually translate as. It has several groups...
suspects being present in Shariff Saydona Mustapha town when the suspects shot at them on Saturday morning, precipitating a gunbattle, said Lt. Col. Benjamin Cadiente, commander of the 33rd Infantry Battalion.
"While troops were approaching the reported location of the terrorists, they were fired upon by an undetermined number of Dawlah Islamiyah-Hassan Group members, which forced the soldiers to retaliate," Cadiente said in a statement, using the Philippine name for the Islamic State (IS) group led by Salahuddin Hassan.
A suspect identified only as "Tong Bomber" was killed in the shootout, according to the state-run Philippine News Agency. He was a bomb expert believed to be responsible for attacks against military convoys and installations in Maguindanao, the PNA report said.
"He was killed following the 7 a.m. encounter in Barangay Nabundas, Shariff Saydona Mustapha town," PNA quoted Cadiente as saying in his incident report to the Army’s 6th Infantry Division commander.
A soldier was maimed in Saturday’s incident, but was out of danger after receiving medical treatment, the military said.
The three suspects allegedly belonged to a faction of the Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters ...a MILF splinter group aligned with the Islamic State... (BIFF) led by Hassan, which has pledged allegiance to IS.
BIFF is a splinter group of the Moro Islamic Liberation Front, which signed a peace deal with Manila in 2014 and controls a Moslem autonomous area in the south.
Other Dawlah Islamiyah cells have worked with a faction that was behind a five-month siege of Marawi,
...that’s be the Maute Group, founded by the Maute brothers...
a city in the southern Philippines, by pro-IS Filipino fighters and snuffies from other countries in 2017.
In January, BIFF snuffies allegedly carried out two roadside kaboomings in the south that killed three and injured scores of people.
In May, BIFF briefly took over a southern town, but bloodshed was averted when they left after a tense standoff.
During a trip to the south soon after, President Rodrigo Duterte warned Moslem leaders he would have to wage an all-out war similar, if local authorities did not rein in the bully boys.
Since January 2021, government forces have captured or slain some 150 bully boy suspects, of whom 19 were from DI and 131 from BIFF.
"in Aleppo". That's a big city. So the Jews knew where to find these guys, and planned on sufficient accuracy that a warhead about the size of an M79 proje would do the job. Am i reading that right?

This is the first time that Turkish forces and Turkish-backed armed factions have targeted the Shi'ite towns of Nubl and Zahra since they took control of the Barad region to the west following their attacks on Afrin in 2018.https://t.co/988tkiQCG4
"In a span from 23:39 to 23:51 on July 19, four F-16 fighter jets of the Israeli Air Force entered Syria’s airspace via the US-controlled al-Tanf zone and fired eight guided missiles at facilities southeast of the city of Aleppo," he said.
According to Kulit, seven missiles were downed by the Russian-made Pantsyr-S and Buk-M2 systems that were on combat duty. One missile damaged the building of a research center in the settlement of Safira in the Aleppo governorate," he said.
The Dubai-based Al Hadath television channel reported earlier on Tuesday that Israel had delivered airstrikes at defense enterprises near al-Safira. According to Al Hadath, strikes were also delivered at weapons depots belonging to pro-Iranian Shia units fighting on the part of the Syrian army. Lebanon’s Al Mayadeen television channel reported that a research center near Aleppo was a target of airstrikes.
Syria’s SANA agency said earlier citing a military source that the Syrian air defense forces had repelled an attack by the Israeli Air Force southeast of Aleppo late on Monday.
[Iran Press TV] Syria has warned the Israeli regime of "serious repercussions" of unrelenting military attacks against the war-torn country, saying such acts of aggression will not dissuade Syrian forces from battling Israeli-backed bully boy groups.
In a statement on Tuesday, the Syrian Foreign Ministry said the Israeli regime forces late on Monday launched an aerial attack targeting positions in the al-Safirah area in the northern province of Aleppo near the Ottoman Turkish border.
The attack was successfully intercepted by Syria’s air defenses, which shot down most of the missiles.
The statement added that the aerial aggression by Tel Aviv coincided with missile attacks by al-Nusra ...formally Jabhat an-Nusrah li-Ahli al-Sham (Support Front for the People of the Levant), also known as al-Qaeda in the Levant. They aim to establish a pan-Arab caliphate. Not the same one as the Islamic State, though .. ... Front gunnies in parts of Aleppo and north of Hama Province lying on the banks of Orontes River.
The attacks were launched from the group’s hideouts in northwestern Idlib Province, the last major bully boy stronghold in the country.
The Syrian ministry warned that Tel Aviv will bear "full responsibility" of the consequences resulting from its unrelenting aggression, continued support to armed terrorist groups and occupation of Arab lands, including the occupied Syrian Golan, renewing the vows to reclaim the occupied territory.
Israel Defense Forces chief Aviv Kohavi warned Leb ...an Iranian colony situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozeen flavors of Christians. It is the home of Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers... on Tuesday that Israel will respond to any rocket attacks from the country, after forces of Evil fired projectiles toward Israeli territory overnight.
In response to the rocket fire, which set off warning sirens in the Western Galilee region, the military said it fired artillery shells at the source of the rockets.
One of the rockets was intercepted by the Iron Dome missile defense system, while the second fell in an open area near the coast, the IDF said. There were no reports of injuries or damage, and the military said it had no special instructions for residents of the region.
The early morning attack came some four hours after Syrian state media said Israeli aircraft launched a number of missiles at targets near the Syrian city of Aleppo.
The Israeli military believes the rockets at northern Israel were fired by a Paleostinian group in southern Lebanon, not by the country’s powerful Hezbollah terror group. However, alcohol has never solved anybody's problems. But then, neither has milk... Hezbollah maintains tight control over southern Lebanon, making it unlikely that such an attack would be conducted from that area without at least its tacit approval.
The Lebanese Army announced Tuesday it had located three Grad rocket launchers, one of which was armed, in the town of Qlaileh, south of Tyre.
There are several Paleostinian terror groups operating in southern Lebanon, along with Hezbollah, which is backed by Iran ...a theocratic Shiite state divided among the Medes, the Persians, and the (Arab) Elamites. Formerly a fairly civilized nation ruled by a Shah, it became a victim of Islamic revolution in 1979. The nation is today noted for spontaneously taking over other countries' embassies, maintaining whorehouses run by clergymen, involvement in international drug trafficking, and financing sock puppet militias to extend the regime's influence. The word Iran is a cognate form of Aryan. The abbreviation IRGC is the same idea as Stürmabteilung (or SA). The term Supreme Guide is a the modern version form of either Duce or Führer or maybe both. They hate JewsZionists Jews. Their economy is based on the production of oil and vitriol... and closely allied with Syria’s Assad regime.
