  • FBI Investigating Antifa For Plotting To Buy Guns From Cartel For ‘Armed Rebellion’

    The FBI is investigating anti-fascist activists for an alleged plot to buy guns from a Mexican cartel in order to “stage an armed rebellion” at the southern border, according to an unclassified document obtained by The Chicago Tribune. The FBI document, from December of 2018, warns of militant antifa activists planning to “disrupt security operations” at the U.S.-Mexico border. The group allegedly planned to buy guns from a Mexican cartel associate known as Cobra Commander, in order to “stage an armed rebellion at the border.” The source who provided it to the San Diego Tribune asked the outlet not to...

    New government video obtained by Fox News shows heavily armed men at the U.S.-Mexico border escorting a migrant mother and son into the United States. Border Patrol officials told Fox News this is an unusual event and express concern that it will become a more regular occurrence – possibly leading to violence. U.S. Border Patrol surveillance cameras caught the armed smugglers escort the migrant family at 10 p.m. Saturday near the town of Lukeville in the southwest corner of Arizona. The video shows four to five men in full tactical gear and masks -- carrying long guns and AK-47 assault...

    A resident of a Texas community located about 80 miles from the Mexican border says cartel-connected human smugglers threaten people who live around their paths. The “coyotes” utilize this area to force migrants on dangerous marches around the Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint. Hundreds died in this area over the past several years, county officials say. “Whoever tells you there is no danger out here and we don’t need the wall, they have no idea what they’re talking about,” a woman identified only as “Solia” told a KVEO reporter. “They don’t care as long as the businesses keep thriving in McAllen...

    Since the National Emergencies Act became law in 1976, U.S. presidents have declared more than 50 emergencies. More than 30 are ongoing. In the past, presidents of both parties have used their emergency powers to reallocate federal funds, reassign government employees, and build infrastructure to protect Americans from terrorist attacks, weapons of mass destruction, and drug cartels.

    Democrats are calling President Trump every name in the book and threatening multiple lawsuits to overturn his Friday declaration of a national emergency on our southern border. The president is using the declaration to enable him to shift funds already in the federal budget to border security. The shifting of money from one set of priorities to the more urgent priority of border security will allow the president to spend over $8.1 billion to build barriers along part of our border with Mexico and fund other border security measures. But listen to the angry denunciations of the president by outraged...

    Illegal immigration ticked down at the border in January, but officials said Friday the trends are still worrisome, with the number of families trying to sneak into the U.S. still near all-time highs. They’re increasingly coming in massive groups, which the cartels use to overwhelm Border Patrol agents — then send a shipment of drugs across the border in a nearby location, confident that the agents are occupied feeding or performing medical checks on the illegal immigrants and won’t be able to respond. “They’re using these large groups to facilitate the crossing of narcotics because they know they’ve tied up...

    Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced that his government will cease all operations against the drug cartels that essentially rule the border area south of the United States. The president justified this change in policy as pragmatism. “We are not endorsing the reign of terror carried out by these criminals,” he said. “Our hope is to mitigate it by adopting a more realistic perspective.” “Since we lack the power to win this war it makes more sense to try to reach an accommodation,” the President maintained. “Once the cartels are persuaded that the government will not interfere with their...

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said President Donald Trump declaring a national emergency to build a wall on the U.S. Mexico border would be a “terrible idea” and that he would fight it. RUBIO: Sure. Because I think it’s important. Look I don’t think we will have to fight. I’m not sure they will do that. I know it’s an option they looked at. But now you are at the mercy of a district court and ultimately an appellate court. It may not withstand if you look at some of the other rulings we have...

    The number of illegal immigrants who showed up at the U.S. border in need of medical attention has soared in recent weeks, even as the number of large groups has also surged. Both trends are proving to be serious impediments to Border Patrol agents, who say they’re being taken off line watch duties to either shepherd the sick as they go to the hospital, or have to process the groups of people — leaving other parts of the border unsecured. In one large group of 247 people, 50 of them had to be taken to the hospital, requiring nearly every...

    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...
