    “The CBP officers’ experience played a significant role in these interceptions,” Laredo Port of Entry Port Director Albert Flores said in a written statement. “Our CBP officers’ hard work, perseverance and utilization of our canines and non-intrusive imaging systems resulted in the interception of these hard narcotics.”

    U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) has identified 238 fraudulent cases of individuals claiming to be related in order to secure entry into the United States. Illegal aliens from Central and South America have been exploiting children to take advantage of loopholes in U.S. immigration policy. In April, the Family Fraud Initiative was launched by ICE, in conjunction with Homeland Security Investigations and U.S. Border Patrol, to investigate individuals posing as family members when applying for asylum in the United States. Under the policy known as "catch and release," families with minor children arriving to the United States are released...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration is planning to collect DNA samples from asylum-seekers and other migrants detained by immigration officials and will add the information to a massive FBI database used by law enforcement hunting for criminals, a Justice Department official said. The Justice Department will publish an amended regulation Monday that would mandate DNA collection for almost all migrants who cross between official entry points and are held even temporarily, according to the official. The official spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the regulation had not yet been published. The rule does not apply...
  • CNN Upset Over Mexican Cooperation with Trump on Border Control

    CNN is upset because President Donald Trump's border control policies are working so well thanks in large part to the cooperation of the Mexican government. And it is that cooperation with Mexico that also irks Univision anchor Jorge Ramos from whom it is obvious CNN got many of their talking points. Oddly enough, however, CNN while being upset with Mexico, also concedes that Trump's border policies are working well. You can see that suprising concession in the very title of their Sunday story by Catherine Shoichet and Natalie Gallón (with talking points lifted from Jorge Ramos), "Why some say Mexico already...

    The Senate didn’t get enough votes to override President Donald Trump’s veto of a resolution that, if it had gone through, would have ended the emergency declaration that included an order to use national security funds to build the wall at the southern border. The vote on Thursday was 53-36. Ten Republicans sided with Democrats in voting to try to override the veto: Sens. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Mike Lee (R-Utah), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), Rand Paul (R-Ky.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio), Mitt Romney (R-Utah), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Pat Toomey (R-Penn.), and Roger Wicker (R-Miss.). Trump vetoed an identical resolution...

    Jihad Watch ^ | 18 Oct, 2019 | Christine Douglass-Williams
    Government watchdog Judicial Watch says more evidence has emerged that Middle East jihadists are entering the United States through the Mexican border. The organization long has presented evidence that terrorists have entered through Texas and reports of ISIS training camps not far from the U.S. border. Judicial Watch said Islamic terrorist infiltration of the southern border is a ‘very real threat. The entire goal of jihadists is to expand the realm of Islam, so it should be easy to understand the logic of why jihadists seek to infiltrate Western countries. Because of the poor job globalist leaders have been doing...

    Do border walls work? Based on the evidence at the new border wall in San Diego, they do. A year ago, the U.S.-Mexico border near San Diego was an easy spot for caravans to send migrants into the United States. Not so much anymore, according to a report from Fox News. A 14-mile long border wall in San Diego that replaced an old fence is already working wonders. “It's incredibly different...I’m able to see the old landing mat right next to the bollard and I'm able to see the old mesh right next to the new bollard and the...

    Congress fell short Thursday in its second attempt to end the national emergency President Donald Trump declared to secure money for his proposed border wall. Both chambers of Congress have passed measures to block Trump’s declaration twice since the president took the step in March, prompting two vetoes. Lawmakers failed to override the second veto Thursday as the GOP-held Senate could not muster the two-thirds majority needed. The chamber voted by a 53-36 margin to end the emergency. Ten Republicans voted with Democrats in supporting the resolution. Democrats and some Republicans have accused the president of overreaching and disregarding Congress’...

    TO THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES: I am returning herewith without my approval S.J. Res. 54, a joint resolution that would terminate the national emergency I declared in Proclamation 9844 of February 15, 2019, pursuant to the National Emergencies Act, regarding the ongoing crisis on our southern border. I am doing so for the same reasons I returned an identical resolution, H.J. Res. 46, to the House of Representatives without my approval on March 15, 2019. Proclamation 9844 has helped the Federal Government address the national emergency on our southern border. It has empowered my Administration’s Government-wide strategy to...

    In November last year, a caravan of hundreds of migrants approached the U.S.-Mexico border near San Diego and faced old landing-mat border barriers erected decades ago. Border agents say the migrants simply trampled over it as they sought entry into the United States to claim asylum as part of migrant waves that would overwhelm authorities. The situation on the ground is much different now. As part of President Trump’s campaign promise to build a wall along the southern border, 14 miles of 18-foot primary steel bollard fencing has been built in San Diego, with a secondary 30-foot steel bollard barrier...

    But now, as more details emerge, things are looking increasingly strange. We’re still not sure what the entire story is, but the Connors are clearly more than they first appeared. For starters, they didn’t “accidentally take a wrong turn.” They were caught on video intentionally driving across a grassy strip between two roads, one on the Canadian side and one in the U.S. And things only got stranger from there. It turns out that the Connors had applied for a travel visa to come to the United States last year but they were denied. The reason for the denial wasn’t...

    Pedro Sanchez-Garay worked as an Uber driver in Southern California, but he got evicted from his apartment and the money wasn’t rolling in fast enough. So he figured he would broaden his pool of riders. He answered a request on social media for some off-the-books driving — of illegal immigrants. Instructions for each pickup were provided over WhatsApp, an encrypted messaging service run by Facebook. He was promised $1,000 a pop to pick them up just after they crossed the border and drive them north deeper into the interior. It’s the gig economy of the border, or as one observer...

    TEMECULA, Calif. — U.S. Border Patrol agents arrested a man near Temecula with fentanyl and cocaine hidden inside his car Wednesday afternoon. On Oct. 9 at approximately 5:15 p.m., agents stopped on a 2009 Ford Escape and conducted a canine sniff prompting agents investigate further. Agents searched the vehicle and noticed the headrests of the backseats were unusually solid. Further inspection revealed two metal boxes fixed in the headrests. Inside the boxes were 12 plastic wrapped packages were nine packages of fentanyl, weighing 22 pounds. This quantity contains enough doses to kill more than 5 million people. The remaining three...

    President Trump says the nation of Mexico is helping the United States more to stop illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border than elected Democrats. During a rally in Lake Charles, Louisiana on Friday night, Trump slammed Democrats for failing to work with his administration to stop illegal immigration, and he thanked Mexico for its cooperation and putting troops on the Mexican side of the border. Trump said: On issue after issue, Democrats have put the needs of foreign citizens ahead of our own citizens. We protect borders of other countries, but we don’t protect our own borders. But I...

    A federal judge ruled Friday that President Donald Trump violated federal law when he used his declaration of a national emergency to get millions for building a wall on the southern border, NBC News reports. The ruling is a victory for El Paso County, Texas, and the Border Network for Human Rights, which sued to stop border construction in their community. They argued that Trump had no legal authority to spend more than what Congress appropriated for the wall project. In January the president asked for $5.7 billion to build "a steel barrier for the Southwest border," but Congress approved...

    A federal judge in Texas declared on Friday that President Trump's proclamation of a national emergency on the southern border is unlawful, blocking the plan to divert funding for a border wall. Judge David Briones of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas said in his opinion that the plan would be blocked after getting input from both sides in a lawsuit for the scope of an injunction. The lawsuit was brought by El Paso County in Texas and a group called the Border Network for Human Rights. Briones, who was appointed to the court by President...

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced Thursday that over 1,000 “false families” that were apprehended crossing the southern border have been detected thanks to DNA testing. "We are utilizing DNA sampling right now in the border environment trying to ferret out the false families," ICE acting director Matthew Albence said in a press briefing on Thursday, according to the Washington Examiner. He went on to criticize a federal judge for ruling to limit the agency’s ability to ask local law enforcement to hold illegal immigrants until ICE can apprehend them.

    I’m so tired of hearing Trump denounced over Syria by GOP establishment lawmakers. When GOP controlled Congress they didn’t give Trump any funding for our own border wall. But somehow defending Syria’s border is a life or death issue for them? Maybe they should resign, move to the Middle East, and run to be leaders of the Kurds or the Syrian rebels. Their priorities aren’t America First, that’s clear enough

    There's heavy construction south of Donna. It’s the second project of its kind in the Rio Grande Valley. This is the ground preparation for the construction of a new border wall. CHANNEL 5 NEWS asked Border Patrol about the contractors, agents and equipment we're seeing at this location. They referred us to an April memo announcing $145 million and a contract with SLSCO to build 13 miles of border wall in the Valley.
