Here they come: Migrants bound for the U.S. border ride on top of a train in Ixtepec, in Oaxaca, southern Mexico (AP).
And I have been interviewed by two dozen media outlets from the Washington Post and L.A. Times to CNN and even FoxNews. Each time I begged them to report the truth about what border agents were telling me - that a tidal wave of new alien arrivals was overwhelming agents and ranchers - especially in Texas.
We showed them emails and faxes, even one handwritten note from a border agent with the numbers. We even told them how DHS stopped releasing monthly statistics on apprehensions after the border crossing spike became known.
The national media ignored the evidence for 9 weeks - until now.
One of the reporters we spoke to, Anna Werner, from CBS News, is now reporting that arrests of illegal aliens crossing into the United States have nearly tripled in recent months in anticipation of the 'Gang of Eight' amnesty. To her credit, Werner spoke to border agents to verify the numbers we showed her back in March, and presented them on the CBS Evening News (video link).
In March, 7,500 illegals were arrested in the Rio Grande Valley of South Texas, which includes McAllen, CBS quoted agent Chris Cabrera as reporting. Thats up from 2,800 in January. And that January number itself is up 200% over 2012. In February, nearly 4,800 illegals were arrested in the Rio Grande.
CBS even reported (as we did at the time) how overwhelmed agents in McAllen used their stations carport to process nearly 900 illegals caught over three days in March, as they ran out of space to handle the massive influx.
The CBS report included surveillance video showing more than 40 men, women and children crossing the border illegally from Mexico during the night.
The people in Washington think they have this idea that the border is safe, the border is secure, agent Cabrera said. I think they need to come down here and take a look.
And remember - the 'Gang of Eight' bill does nothing to secure the border whatsoever. Even its proponents now admit that. If it passes there will be an even larger wave of illegals crossing the border, leaving ranchers and border states devastated by cartel criminals, and the wages of American workers further depressed by illegal aliens.
CBS interviewed one rancher, Juan Mercado, who lives on border property his family has owned since the 1850s, and is now under seige. Illegals usually come across his property, but recently Mercado has seen a tidal wave of illegals streaming across.

All aboard the Gravy Train!
Viva la Gang of Eight Traitors!
Hey Gringo !!!
We’re here and we’re dear !!!
so pay youz taxaz suckaz
“All aboard the Gravy Train!”
If this country would just wake up a bit we should be able to create a tidal wave of demonstrations against welfare queens, bums, and leeches. Those terrorists were even milking the system while driving only the best vehicles. We need to start arresting some politicos...not by the police...but by the people.
You can only see something like this coming from outside the DC Beltway.
I am confused too.
Why are illegals coming here when we are on the verge of passing that immigration bill that Rubio assures us is punitive to illegals ??? OPPPS( Marco asks us to call them ‘undocumented’ not illegals)
He assures us that ‘the path’ will be long and hard for them and it will make them sorry they ever came here.
So why are they coming here knowing that?
Was Obama in Medico promoting Obama-care?
You build it[Amnesty Bill] they will come.
Ollie Ollie in come free!
But what’s the hurry? Juan and his dhimmie friends plan to suspend our immigration laws indefinitely.
I used to think this country was asleep. Now I think a good bit of it has been beaten into submission as part of the cloward piven strategy. Hopefully I'm wrong and folks will rise up (peacefully) in opposition to this.
Has got to GO!
Has got to GO!
Has got to GO!
