    Acting Chief Patrol Agent Raul Ortiz praised POTUS Donald Trump Thursday and claimed that it’s imperative to get walls or other substantial physical barriers built along the U.S.-Mexico border to stem illegal immigration and drug smuggling. In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Ortiz added that it is so important to “finish the job” already begun in his sector, which comprises much of the Rio Grande Valley in Texas. Hannity, citing the example of another sector of the border that went from 5 to 64 miles of fencing, decreasing illegal immigration by 90 percent, asked if that would happen...

    The chief of U.S. Border Patrol during Barack Obama's presidency said Monday that President Trump is right in his view that border walls are effective. Mark Morgan said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight" that walls "absolutely work" and that there is no real argument against building and implementing one.
  • It’s Time to Listen to Law Enforcement About the Border, Not Politicians

    01/08/2019 10:54:27 AM PST · by Kaslin · 3 replies ^ | January 8, 2019 | John Dempsey
    Political parties do not matter when it comes to the practicality and functionality of border walls. Democrats say that walls do not work and even some Republicans echo that sentiment. I do not care if a Republican - most likely like former Ohio Governor John Kasich – says that a physical barrier is not necessary. They are politicians worried about public opinion for the next election. Talk to a Border Patrol agent, sheriff deputy or police officer in a border county and you will get the truth about the need for a wall.This week President Trump appeared with National Border...
  • “Crisis” of Seriously Ill Migrants Slams Border Patrol—TB, Pneumonia, Influenza, Parasites

    Judicial Watch ^ | January 7, 2019
    Weeks after mainstream media outlets reported that illegal immigrants don’t bring disease into the United States, the Border Patrol reveals that it is getting slammed daily with dozens of illegal immigrants carrying “serious illnesses.” This includes tuberculosis, influenza and pneumonia. In fact, a Guatemalan migrant who died in U.S. custody on Christmas Eve had Influenza B, a virus that causes respiratory infections. Federal agents are referring 50 illegal immigrants a day for urgent medical care, according to figures obtained by Washington D.C.’s conservative newspaper . Authorities say “it’s unlike anything they’ve ever seen before.” Many of the migrants have tuberculosis,...

    WASHINGTON – House Democratic Caucus Vice Chairwoman Katherine Clark (D-Mass.) told PJM that she hopes President Donald Trump settles for building border barriers that are not as high as a “giant wall” while helping DREAMers as part of a deal to reopen the government. Clark was asked if she would support a deal with Trump that includes legal status for DREAMers in exchange for the $5 billion in wall funding. “We’re hoping for some sort of compromise. The wall is a bad idea. We have better technology. There are better things that we can spend our money on to improve...
  • Border Patrol can now collect, keep social-media data

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection has adopted a new rule that allows the agency to collect social-media data from those who cross the border. The agency claims the exemption from Privacy Act provisions is necessary because it needs “to identity and understand relationships between individuals, entities, threats and events, and to monitor patterns of activity over extended periods of time that may be indicative of criminal, terrorist, or other threat.” A number of privacy groups and interests had opposed the expansion of the exemptions to the privacy law, but the agency in a filing in the Federal Register explained that...

    Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein penned a letter on Thursday urging the chamber's Judiciary committee to schedule a hearing about Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and its “treatment of immigrant children.” The letter was addressed to incoming Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and said the request came “in light of the deaths of two young children in Border Patrol custody this month.” An 8-year-old boy from Guatemala, who was identified by the country’s consul in Phoenix as Felipe Gomez Alonzo, died on Tuesday while in U.S. custody, immigrations officials previously said. Customs and Border Protection revealed that the boy died...

    The NY Times breathlessly fired off another misleading headline the other day: 8-Year-Old Migrant Child From Guatemala Dies in U.S. Custody An 8-year-old boy from Guatemala died in United States custody early Christmas Day, the second death of a child in detention at the southwest border in less than three weeks, raising questions about the ability of federal agents running the crowded migrant border facilities to care for those who fall ill. In "United State custody." When a perpetrator is shot at the scene of a crime and expires either at the scene or in the hospital, it is not...

    Full title: Another strikeout for the open borders lobby: Deceased migrant child's father refused him medical care The open-borders lobby thought they had a live one. An eight-year old Guatemalan boy, traveling with his wannabe-illegal immigrant father, died in Border Patrol custody as the two crossed illegally from Mexico into the New Mexico badlands. It's the second child death for the month as migrants move to dangerous areas to cross over illegally. Yes, it's very sad. And lefties have had a field day, pinning the whole thing on the Border Patrol. There's just one problem: The migrant child's father refused...

    Rep. Luis Gutiérrez declared that the Trump administration’s immigration policies would have killed Jesus Christ during a scathing statement Thursday attacking Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. The Illinois Democrat used the entirety of his time at the House Judiciary Committee hearing to trash Ms. Nielsen as a “remorseless” liar for her repeated claims that the department does not have a family separation policy. “It is repugnant to me and astonishing to me that during Christmas, a time in which we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ — a Jesus Christ who had to flee for his life with Mary and...

    Seven million dollars might not seem like a lot when you consider that the illegal drug business generates hundreds of billions of dollars of revenue for organized crime all over the world. But, at least there’s $7 million worth of hard drugs off the streets. A major drug bust occurred earlier this week at the U.S./Mexico border in Texas. Border officials said that an estimated $6,998,000 worth of methamphetamine, cocaine and what is believed to be heroin were discovered. Border agents at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge cargo facility were alerted to a commercial shipment of stone blocks on Monday. Officers...

    The government snared more than 3,000 illegal immigrants in just one day last week, the administration’s top border official told Congress on Tuesday, saying the situation qualifies as a full-blown “crisis.” Kevin K. McAleenan, commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said more than 1,100 of those caught either jumping the border or trying to come through a border crossing without permission were children, either traveling alone or with parents, and forced on the treacherous journey.

    Unwilling to wait weeks in Mexico to press their asylum claims, a group of 30 caravan members, with a BuzzFeed News reporter in tow, search for a way to skirt the border barriers. Javier Piñeda and his sleeping 10-year-old son huddled in the dirt with a group of Central Americans from the caravan, who were eyeing their latest obstacle: the US border fence and the agents who patrol it. Piñeda was one of about 30 people who'd walked two hours to get here. They'd been kicked out of the sports complex where they'd been housed since arriving in Tijuana about...

    Violence against Border Patrol agents continued to spiral this week with authorities reporting one agent held at gunpoint by an illegal immigrant in California, and two agents in Arizona facing attacks by hand. In the California incident agents responded Monday morning to a report that two illegal immigrants had been detected crossing the border on foot. The first man was apprehended without any problem, but the second, Hector Rodriguez-Chavez, aimed a loaded Star Echeverria pistol at an agent. The agent and Rodriguez struggled for the gun, and even the help of two other agents was not enough to pry the...

And leading figures in the media from CNN's Jim Acosta to political leaders like former president Barack Obama – who made all sorts of false or baseless claims about them – have egg all over their faces. In his now infamous confrontation with President Trump during a White House news conference just after the midterm elections, Acosta admonished the president that the migrants were "hundreds and hundreds of miles away." CNN screen grab. It turns out that over 5,000 of them started showing up in Tijuana, the Mexican town opposite San Diego, just days later;...
