    LAREDO, Texas — In the most open area of the Texas border, human smugglers are running wild in their efforts to circumvent U.S. Border Patrol Agents. Earlier this week, border patrol agents arrested 10 suspected human smugglers in connection with various conspiracies to smuggle more than 75 illegal aliens in total. Breitbart Texas researched the court records for the 10 suspected smugglers who have all been formally charged in federal court in this border city. One of the most dramatic cases came on July 25, when Raymond Segura, a member of the prison gang Hermanos Pistoleros Latinos, was arrested along...

    A small semi-submersible vessel containing four people and eight tons of cocaine was discovered by the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials on July 18 in the eastern Pacific Ocean. The self-propelled craft was first spotted off the coast of El Salvador by a Navy maritime patrol aircraft flying overhead. The semi-sub was hundreds of miles offshore in international waters. The U.S. Coast Guard was called in to assist with intercepting the craft. Four individuals were detained by the Coast Guard boarding team in the process. Roughly274 bales of cocaine were found in the semi-sub, weighing...

    In a thoughtful review of Ann Coulter's splendid new book, iconoclastic Democrat Mickey Kaus lists the open-borders advocates in American politics: ...the entire Democratic party, half the Republican party, half (secretly) of the politicians who claim to represent the other half of the Republican party, virtually the entire press (including Fox), virtually all of business, and virtually all big money political donors (including the Kochs!). The bit I've bolded helps explain the Trump bump in the GOP polls. A significant part of the Republican base thinks half their candidates are just schmoozing them to get through primary season, genuflecting toward...

    A couple of missed calls, a voicemail — even a Snapchat — from his teacher notified Steinmetz College Prep graduate Cesar Bustos, 18, that he was headed to the White House. Bustos, who was at work when he got the news, is one of 130 students selected to attend first lady Michelle Obama’s Beating the Odds Summit on Thursday. The summit is part of the first lady’s Reach Higher initiative, which is intended to get more U.S. students to continue their education after high school. “The experience sounds so surreal,” Bustos said. “Being undocumented, I never believed I would ever...

    A briefing today at NCLR (National Council of La Raza) addressed new data from The George Washington University (GW) which show that most U.S. voters have positive views of undocumented immigrants. Most voters surveyed consider undocumented immigrants "family and community oriented" (71%) and agreed they "fill jobs Americans don't want" (67%). A majority disagreed that undocumented immigrants "are 'cheaters' here just to help themselves" (59 percent), "belong to gangs and commit many crimes" (56 percent), or "threaten our traditional American culture" (56 percent). "Among American voters today, there is a substantial, multidimensional and widespread favorable attitude toward undocumented immigrants," said...

    Up to 87 percent of undocumented immigrants will be able to remain in the United States if the executive action measures on immigration taken by President Barack Obama are implemented without modifications, according to a study published by the Migration Policy Institute. The report by the independent immigration study center said that the net effect of the new policies will be a reduction in deportations from the United States. In all, 5.2 million immigrants would benefit from these immigration relief measures, but the MPI notes that the implementation of new guidelines for law enforcement and immigration authorities would broaden the...

    Despite international protests, Hungary has begun building a huge anti-migration fence along its 175-kilometer (109 miles) border with Serbia. Some 900 soldiers are involved in the project using materials provided by inmates. Hungary's government says it is crucial to stem the flow of migrants choosing the Balkans route to reach Europe as an alternative to the dangerous boat trips that have killed many. In tropical temperatures, troops managed to erect the first part of the four-meter-high (13 feet) fence. They arrived in armored vehicles turning the area into a war zone. Several police officers are also in the neighborhood, adding...

    Donald Trump may be thousands of miles from Washington on the Texas-Mexico border, but on Capitol Hill he's center stage in the fight over illegal immigration. The bill, which is formally called the "Enforce the Law for Sanctuary Cities Act," would block states and cities from receiving federal law enforcement funding if they have so-called “sanctuary city” practices in place, blocking the enforcement of certain federal immigration laws. It passed today in the House with overwhelming Republican support in a 241-179 vote, with only six Democrats joining the majority. Democrats have pejoratively labeled the legislation “The Donald Trump Act,” tying...

    RIO GRANDE CITY, Texas – When then-Texas Gov. Rick Perry deployed a battalion of the state’s National Guard troops here last August, he called them the “tip of the spear” against Mexican cartels that trafficked dope and illegal immigrants. Critics, especially here in the Rio Grande Valley, derided Perry’s decision as expensive political theater that “militarized” the border and antagonized Mexico. Perry’s supporters defended the move as a long overdue “surge” of police and soldiers against an influx of tens of thousands of undocumented and unescorted juveniles, mostly from Central America, that would fill gaps in federal border security.

Steinle's daughter, Kathryn, was killed on July 1 as the pair strolled at the Embarcadero. The duo were “walking arm-in-arm” relishing a “wonderful day...

    At its very essence, “The first duty of government is the protection of life, not its destruction. Abandon that, and you have abandoned all”, wrote Thomas Jefferson. When the government not only fails to protect its citizens, but enables those who are here illegally to murder them, it can no longer be called a government. When 32-year-old Kate Steinle was murdered two weeks ago in the sanctuary city of San Francisco by illegal alien and multi-felon Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, people immediately began to ask how this could happen. How could a criminal, whose history includes seven felonies along with five...

And it didn’t go the way anyone expected. Jim Steinle and Liz Sullivan are understandably lost in grief. But the Pleasanton couple didn’t say we need to tighten the borders or crack down on undocumented immigrants. They slipped into Fox News-speak a couple of times, saying “illegal aliens,” a jarring term that has long passed, like “colored people,” into the realm of pejorative. And I suppose it is also...

After Freddie Gray was killed, Obama walked out to the Rose Garden and declared: "We have some soul-searching to do." But after Kathryn Steinle was killed July 1, allegedly by an undocumented immigrant with seven felony convictions, Obama said ... nothing. No promises of "justice." No calls for "soul-searching."

    Donald Trump has rocketed to the top, or near the top, of the Republican-primary field by focusing on illegal immigration and border security. Depending on the poll, Trump is garnering in the high teens of Republican voters. It might be that the high teens is the ceiling for Trump, but in a field with more than one dozen candidates dividing the voting pie, that’s enormous. As the field narrows, Trump will have to expand those numbers if he is to win a primary, much less the nomination. But for now, Trump is in the driver’s seat, and his vehicle is...

    Donald Trump said Tuesday that if elected president he will erect a wall along the country’s southern border and said that taxpayers won’t have to pay a dime for it. “I will build a great, great wall on our southern border and I will have Mexico pay for that wall,” Mr. Trump said. He did not provide any details on how he would get Mexico to go along with his plan.

The hijacking took place on June 7, near the Mexican border city of Matamoros. The truck had just left the U.S. Logistics Center in Brownsville when the armed robbery...

    A year after the height of the so-called surge, a weeks-long period last summer when tens of thousands of Central American children crossed illegally into the United States, education experts say the federal government has left the burden of educating and caring for these children to cash-strapped public schools. Over the last year, teachers and administrators have been left to teach these kids English, even though some of them had never stepped foot inside of a classroom and many are in need of mental health counseling following their traumatic encounters with gang violence, sex trafficking or kidnapping in their native...

    Homeland Security will begin releasing more illegal immigrant families from detention, Secretary Jeh Johnson announced Wednesday as he bowed to political pressure from activists and members of Congress who’d called the conditions inhumane for families. Despite offering amenities for the illegal immigrants ranging from flat-screen televisions in every suite, classrooms and ball fields at their disposal and 24-hour access to snacks and sodas, Mr. Johnson said he’s concluded things are still too harsh. He said illegal immigrant parents and children who claim they fear for their lives back home will now have the chance to post a “reasonable and realistic”...
  • Immigration reform: 'The California Package'

    While the federal government stalls on immigration reform, some states have begun acting on their own. California has passed more than a dozen laws on immigrant integration between 2001 and the present. In mid-June, the state expanded healthcare access to all undocumented children and boosted spending for naturalization assistance. These various laws collectively produce a kind of state-level citizenship — call it "the California Package." The California Package is innovative in several respects. Not only does it grant rights to immigrants that are restricted at the federal level, but it also tends to blur the distinction between citizens, authorized, and...
  • Hungary to Build Fence on Serbian Border as Fast as Possible

    Hungary has decided to build a temporary fence on the border with Serbia as fast as possible to stop the flow of illegal migrants, the foreign minister said Wednesday. 61,000 migrants had entered Hungary this year, nearly all by crossing Hungary's southern border with Serbia. Most of those who request refugee status in Hungary quickly leave for other destinations in western Europe, like Austria, Germany and Sweden. Refugees can be returned to the EU country where they first made their asylum request. Refugees registering for asylum in Hungary had already likely passed through Greece first, so they should be sent...

    The Druze community in Israel is on high alert Sunday, after Al Qaeda massacred 20 Druze in Syria - a move the community has deemed a "red line." "Israel's policy is that it will not intervene in Syria, and we accept that with understanding and love," former minister Salah Tarif, who served in the 12-16th Knessets as part of Labor, stated to Walla! News. "We will also not interfere, but we do have red lines." "We are operating now as a form of witness, as a religious entity to protect our brothers," he added. "We are 'at the ready' like...
