    Union leader says some stations continue to follow Obama 'catch and release' directives Some border patrol stations have been slow to carry out President Donald Trump’s immigration enforcement executive order and instead have continued former President Barack Obama’s “catch-and-release” policies, according to a union official. Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told LifeZette that he raised concerns Thursday with U.S. Border Patrol Chief Ronald Vitiello. He said he is confident that issue soon will be corrected. But Judd said as recently as Thursday, some border patrol stations were still releasing border-jumpers, often without even issuing notices to...

    Three months after Secret Service agent Kerry O’Grady posted on Facebook that she’d rather accept “jail time” than take a “bullet” for President Donald Trump, the agency has placed O’Grady on paid administrative leave while they investigate the matter.   The Facebook post was dug up this week and reveals that the 23-year veteran of the Secret Service was a strong Hillary Clinton supporter during the campaign who said that she didn’t care about the Hatch Act, which bans agents from publicly advocating for a political party or candidate.

    The New York Post ^ | 11/6/2016 | Paul Sperry
    As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance to handle such material. In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate — if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used. Clinton entrusted far more than the care of her DC residence, known as Whitehaven, to Santos. She expected...

    A top House Republican is calling on the Department of Homeland Security not to retaliate against a border patrol agent who has recently criticized President Obama's immigration policies. "I fully expect that you will personally ensure that no DHS employee or contractor will be targeted for reprisal or any other form of adverse employment action on the basis of voicing their legitimate concerns regarding compliance with unwritten departmental policies that contradict your written policies," Judiciary Committee chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., wrote in an April 18 letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson.

Vega was murdered while fishing with his father earlier this week..

The goal is to create a larger, and more consistent TSA presence in screening areas.

However, John Dodson, an agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, won't be allowed to make money on the book. A U.S. law enforcement official familiar with the matter says the Justice Department, ATF and the Federal Bureau of Investigation will review Dodson's manuscript and, after making redactions to protect sensitive law enforcement information, will clear it for publication.

    A bladder cancer survivor says he was left drenched by his own urine after he was manhandled by an arrogant airport screener at the Detroit Metro Airport. Even more galling for 62-year-old Thomas Sawyer is that it's the second time in less than a year that this has happened to him - and he's not settling for another apology from the Transportation Security Administration. (Snip) "He said, 'Yeah, I know,' and he patted me down," Sawyer said. "He was rough and he squeezed the bag a couple of times. The young kid was anything but gentle, and he didn't ask

    The parents of a teenaged resident of the Mexican city of Juarez today sued the U.S. government for $25 million in connection with the boy's shooting death at the hands of U.S. Border Patrol agents in El Paso last year. The Border Patrol says Sergio Hernandez Guereca, 15, was pelting U.S. agents with rocks from the Mexican side of the Rio Grande last June when Border Patrol agents on the U.S. side shot him to death. But attorney Bob Hilliard told 1200 WOAI’s Berit Mason that the boy was the victim of 'brutality' on the part of the federal agents,...

    TSA Agent Takes Child From Parent As I sit and write this post, 24 hours after this event took place, my hands still shake… with rage and with terror. I woke up this morning to my husband’s alarm clock, sat straight up in bed and thought “Where’s Jackson?” with fear paralyzing me. My worst nightmare took place yesterday. Worse than events that have taken place and that I have survived in my short 28 years of living. Worse than my wildest of dreams could conjure. My son was taken from me. Taken. My son was taken from me by the...

    My previous post looked at Vermont's independent Senator Bernie Sanders and his links to senior Communist Party USA member Mike Bayer. I speculated that Bayer may be both a communist spy and agent-of-influence inside Sanders' Vermont Progressive Party. It turns out that Bayer is not the first possible communist agent to back Bernie Sanders. During his unsuccessful 1988 run for U.S. Congress, then Burlington, Vermont mayor Sanders received the endorsement of I. F. Stone, an iconic leftist journalist, alleged communist sympathizer, Soviet spy and possible agent-of- influence. Here is a letter that Stone mailed out on behalf of the Sanders...

    Independent Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders may have a Communist Party USA agent in his camp. The person in question is Mike Bayer, who is currently serving as Treasurer of Bernie Sanders' Vermont Progressive Party. The Senator from Vermont, is a self proclaimed socialist and proud of it. As a student in Chicago, Sanders was active in the Young Peoples Socialist League and has a decades old relationship with America's largest marxist organization, Democratic Socialists of America. It was in conjunction with D.S.A. that Sanders formed, in 1991, the Congressional Progressive Caucus, now a more than eighty strong alliance of far...
