  • GOP Spending Bill Gives Nearly $1 Billion To Aid Border Migrants

    12/09/2014 8:53:08 AM PST · by navysealdad · 206 replies
    The GOP’s draft 2015 “omnibus” spending bill reportedly includes $948 million to help poor and unskilled Central American migrants establish themselves in the United States, but includes no effective restrictions on President Barack Obama’s plan to provide work permits and tax payments to millions of resident illegal immigrants. That new spending works out to $16,928 for each of the 56,000 youths, young adults and children who crossed the border during the 12 months up to October 2014.

    The News 4 Tucson Investigators have uncovered that some U.S. Border Patrol agents have lost a key part of their arsenal. And that has agents who patrol along the border here, extremely worried. We learned that U.S. Customs and Border Protection's Offices of Border Patrol and Training and Development are inspecting the quality of agents' M4 carbines throughout Border Patrol sectors nationwide. But agents tell us, some of those M4s have not been replaced. And, we've learned, agents are required to share rifles amongst each other. "There's a lot of agents that are pretty upset over it," said Art del...

    The court records show Border Patrol agents working the immigration checkpoint in Sarita, Texas arrested Eric Rodriguez earlier this week. Rodriguez was wearing his military uniform when he allegedly drove his Chevrolet pickup truck to the checkpoint. U.S. Border Patrol agents searched the vehicle. The agents allegedly found two illegal immigrants hiding in the floorboard just beside the front seat; they were using a bed sheet and Ramirez’s military jacket to cover themselves. Once in custody, the illegal immigrants, Alejandro Maya-Gonzalez and Juan Inda-Isiordia, told an agent with Homeland Security Investigations that one of the men had paid $3,000 to...

    So much for that fresh start with Latino voters. In a dramatic departure from their determination only months ago to win a second look from that rapidly-growing community, national Republicans have embarked on a sustained campaign to make the immigration crisis a central issue in 2014 and exhort voters to punish the White House for failing to lock down the U.S.-Mexico border. The intensity of their rhetoric has increased as a surge of child migrants has renewed attention to the border and amid anticipation that President Barack Obama will issue a set of executive actions on immigration, including potentially suspending...

  • DOJ Report: Nearly Half of Fed Crimes Near Mexican Border

    Judicial Watch ^ | August 5, 2014
    Crime is so high along the Mexican border that nearly half of all the criminal cases filed by federal prosecutors in the United States last fiscal year were concentrated in a handful of districts located in that region, according to the U.S. government’s figures. It’s not as if this is new, but to see it spelled out in a government report with a detailed breakdown is truly alarming. The statistics illustrate that the Mexican-border region is a cesspool of crime that’s costing American taxpayers a chunk of change not to mention loads of grief. There are 94 federal court districts...

    Over last weekend, it finally got out – despite suppression from the White House and the media – that the Mexican drug cartels/human traffickers are now firing .50 caliber ammo at our USBP Agents. These are bullets that can reach their targets as much as a mile away. This is an act of war. Yet, neither the Pretend POTUS and Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama nor any of his minions comment on it at all. Neither does Obama try to stop the thousands of illegals (largely gang members, drug cartels/human traffickers and Islamists...not children) that he has invited into the country...

    The lack of action on border security from the Obama administration has prompted a wide variety of responses. State officials close to the situation in Texas and Arizona have called for federal assistance but have received little response, leaving them to do what they can with their own resources. Civilian protestors have coordinated to challenge the transportation of illegal immigrants throughout the country by Department of Homeland Security agents. Other civilians, organized into militia groups, have moved troops to Arizona and Texas to assist in closing a border that the federal government seems content to leave open despite the growing...

    When talking with Bill O’Reilly, Charles Krauthammer was asked a very simple question Tuesday: “How do you secure the border, Charles?” He answered with an equally simple answer: “You start with a fence. It’s very simple. …If fences don’t work, why is there one around the White House? If they don’t work, why is it that the Israeli fence, which separates Israel from the West Bank, has cut down terror attacks within Israel by 99%? Fences work.” An interesting thought. Obviously, the border is longer than that of the White House; but the principle stays the same…

    The Thinning of the Thin Green LinePosted By Michael Cutler On June 26, 2014 @ 12:40 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 2 Comments The term “The thin blue line” is associated with law enforcement, especially the police. The phrase is based on the usual color of the police uniform and the fact that the relatively small numbers of sworn police officers is all that stands between the citizenry of towns, cities and states and criminals.The uniforms that the members of the United States Border Patrol wear is green. Sometimes the Border Patrol has been referred to as the “Green...

    MCALLEN, Texas—In one weekend, the U.S. Border Patrol prevented murder suspects, multiple sex offenders, and an MS-13 gang member from entering the interior of Texas after they illegally entered into the U.S. from Mexico. The arrests occurred in the Rio Grande Valley sector, ground zero of the current border crisis. The murder suspect was caught approximately 85 miles from the border in Texas, near the town of Falfurrias. He is a Guatemalan who is wanted for alleged murder in the State of Florida. Another of the arrests occurred near McAllen, Texas as a man from El Salvador who crossed the...

    A President Obama appointed Federal Judge ruled that the US and Mexico border fence is racist. Some times you wonder what in the world goes through the liberal mind set, especially in the court room. President Obama appointed Judge Beryl Howell in 2010 to the United States District Court for the US District of Colombia. One has to wonder why a US District of Colombia court is ruling on the fence in Texas. In her opinion from the 37 page Border Fence Ruling, Judge Howell declared that the fence on the border between the United States and Mexico in the...

They spent the past few days in detention, and Ana Maria worries about what the future holds. But even as questions swirl in her head, this 28-year-old mother says one thing is certain: "I do not want to go back to Guatemala." It's been three years since she last saw her husband, who works in a restaurant in Portland, Oregon. Now he's just three bus rides and 34 hours away. She's excited to bring her family back...

    HOUSTON, Texas—Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) sent a letter to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson to secure the border and put an end to the "humanitarian crisis." Cruz’s letter to Johnson comes less than twenty-four hours after the top three Texas lawmakers sent a letter to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) Director, Colonel Steve McCraw. The letter directed McCraw to conduct an immediate surge of Texas law enforcement resources along the border. The outcry over the crisis has continued to build steam since Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby released over 40 leaked internal government...

    As the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) marches through Iraq, leaving slaughter and mass graves in its wake, the obvious concern is the eventual creation of a terrorist state in the Middle East. Far across the world on the U.S. southern border, children from Central America are streaming north, at the tacit invitation of our president. Are these unrelated examples of a feckless foreign policy emanating from the White House? Or are these two disparate events are actually related and dangerous to America’s security? Reported in the British media, it’s not only children crossing our border, but also...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary over the ever growing number of unaccompanied children flooding into South Texas as a result of Obama’s immigration policies. DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee at the Capitol Wednesday morning. Sen. Cruz laid out the enormity of the problem to Secretary Johnson by stating, “In 2011, there were roughly 7,000 unaccompanied minors who were apprehended. In 2012, that number rose to 14,000. In 2013, it rose to 24,000.” In a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas, Cruz expounded, “In 2014, your agency is estimating it...

    As Republican House members filed into the basement meeting room to say goodbye to Eric Cantor, they pushed past reporters in the packed hallway, largely ignoring shouted questions about the race for Republican Majority Leader. But Texas Representative Pete Sessions strode up to the cameras and explained why he was the best candidate. “There he goes,” one House member muttered as he witnessed the scene. Other congressmen in the hall chuckled in response. Sessions couldn’t have made it any clearer why he was running: to send a message to the White House on immigration reform. For Sessions it was likely...

    HOUSTON, Texas--The massive influx of adults and minors crossing into the U.S. from Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador has brought the Customs and Border Protection agency (CPB) past its capacity to provide security at the U.S./Mexico border, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). In an interview with Breitbart Texas, NBPC Vice President Shawn Moran revealed that the Mexican cartels control the flow of illegal immigrants across Mexico through the monopoly on coyotes, otherwise known as human smugglers. “Mexican cartels are exploiting this crisis to get their shipments through. They know our schedules, our shifts, our manpower, and...

    Amid the revelation that federal resources and facilities--many of which are located in Texas--are overwhelmed due to a significant spike in illegal immigration, Texans are particularly concerned about securing the U.S.-Mexico border. Speaking to a large crowd on Friday at the Texas GOP Convention, Texas Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott promised that if elected, he will secure the border. "I will do what the federal government has failed to do," Abbott said. "I will secure our border." The crowd stood up and erupted into applause. Abbott continued, "We've seen cartel activity infiltrate our schools and contaminate communities across...

    More than 60,000 illegal children below the age of 18 will cross the border this year unaccompanied by an adult, and the government thinks that number is likely to double next year.The flood of children from Mexico, Honduras, Guatemala, and other Central American nations is putting a tremendous strain on government resources. Reuters reports that not only is there simply no room to house the children, but the budget problem makes it difficult to adequately care for them. It costs the U.S. $252 a day to care for each child and the total cost this year could reach $868...
