    Here’s one of the stranger stories to come out of the ongoing protests and riots, though it took place a week ago. During the June 3 protests in Detroit, a Customs and Border Protection helicopter was being used to monitor the activities in the southeastern portion of the city near the Canadian border. While the pilot was aloft and keeping an eye on things, someone on the other side of the border began repeatedly pointing a green laser into the cockpit. This continued even after the pilot took evasive action to avoid being blinded. Who would be targeting an...

    Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), the Ranking Member of the House Oversight Committee, accused Democrats of exploiting the Wuhan coronavirus pandemic in order to push for "extreme changes in immigration policy." "This concept ought to be simple: We should not turn our back on the citizens and lawful immigrants of this great country to favor those that broke the law and came here illegally or overstayed their visas," said the Ohio congressman during a conference call with Acting Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Matthew Albence and Acting Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Mark Morgan. Democrats have called...

    President Trump is "exactly right" to direct his efforts toward combatting sanctuary city policies, retired U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan said Saturday. Appearing on "Fox & Friends: Weekend" with host Griff Jenkins, Homan said he is glad the president is turning his attention toward the issue. "The Congress isn't going to fix it," he stated. "I asked them two years ago to fix it. They are not going to fix it. They want it to be a 2020 issue." Speaking in Washington on Friday, the president vowed to oppose sanctuary cities not complying with federal law...

    Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan said Tuesday that he believes Mexico’s stagnant economy could be pushing migrants north to the United States in search of work. The number of Mexicans apprehended on the southern border increased 10.6 percent in January from the previous month, to 16,116. Mexican nationals represented about 61 percent of apprehended migrants last month, and the majority were single adults. The January figures mark a significant increase from the percentage of Mexican migrants last year. When border apprehensions hit a 13-year high in May, the majority of migrants were from Northern Triangle countries: Guatemala,...

    New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has "lost his mind" on immigration policy, retired U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan said Friday. Appearing on "Fox & Friends: First," Homan said Cuomo is "spitting in the face of federal law." Last December, the controversial "Green Light Law" was passed by the Sanctuary State's Democratic Legislature and signed by Cuomo. Under the law, county and state motor vehicle departments may accept applications for licenses, regardless of immigration status. New York is just one of the 15 states and Washington D.C. which operates under similar laws. On Wednesday, Acting Homeland...

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in Minnesota discovered $900,000 in counterfeit $1 bills inside a shipping container originating from China, the agency said in a press release Monday. CBP officers had referred a rail container for a Customs Exam Station inspection on Dec. 14 at the International Falls Port of Entry, which connects the cities of International Falls, Minn., and Fort Frances, Ontario, Canada. While inspecting the container Friday, CBP officers found 45 cartons of possible counterfeit currency in the form of $1 bills with a total face value of $900,000. The U.S. Secret Service was contacted and determined...

    Former Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan said Sunday that U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made “dangerous” and “idiotic” statements regarding ICE and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) at a campaign rally for 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in Iowa. “She's disgusting,” Homan said on “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday morning, reacting to Ocasio-Cortez’s comments the night before. On Saturday, with Sanders, I-Vt., tied up in Washington at President Trump's Senate impeachment trial, Ocasio-Cortez addressed his supporters in Ames, Iowa, calling for the abolition of ICE and CBP. The New York Democrat also urged Sanders'...

Further details about their arrests were not immediately available, but police are expected to provide updates during a press conference at 2 p.m. ET.

    On October 7, United States Customs and Border Protection agents discovered that the two men in a truck at an immigration checkpoint were Hondurans. A border patrol agent was hurt when “the driver accelerated” while agents sought to remove the men from the truck. The men drove away in the truck but were later captured. From the CBP press release: Agents referred the vehicle for a more extensive inspection, during which agents determined the two occupants were citizens of Honduras. As agents attempted to extract the subjects from the vehicle, the driver accelerated, injuring an agent. The driver and passenger...

    James S. Brady Press Briefing Room 11:02 A.M. EDT ACTING COMMISSIONER MORGAN: Good morning. Thank you all for being here today to discuss CBP’s southwest border enforcement statistics for September. But before I get to the numbers, I’d like to say thank you to the men and women of the Customs and Border Protection for their tireless efforts through Fiscal Year 2019, dealing with this unprecedented crisis. They do a phenomenal job securing our nation’s borders, enforcing our nation’s laws, saving lives, and maintaining the integrity of our system and rule of law — and doing so with humanity and...

    Border officials apprehended just over 52,000 migrants at the southern border in September -- another drop in numbers for the fourth consecutive month -- as administration officials said Tuesday the numbers are proof that policies at the border are working. Total encounters, making up those apprehended or turned away, were 52,546 in September, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced. It marks a drop of almost 65 percent from the 144,000 encountered in May, and an 18 percent decline from August, when just over 64,000 were apprehended. "This represents the fourth month in a row of a steady decline in apprehensions,"...
  • Border Patrol Council Chief Brandon Judd: Morale ‘Looking Up Greatly’ Among Agents Because of Trump

    09/30/2019 12:41:25 PM PDT · by rktman ^ | 9/29/2019 | jeff poor
    Border Patrol agents have been subject to criticism from Democratic politicians and left-leaning talking heads in a highly polarized environment. One example came earlier this year when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) reportedly yelled at agents in a “threatening manner” on a congressional Democrat fact-finding mission down at the border. However, despite that instance and others, Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, insists morale is up among agents, and he credits President Donald Trump for that. During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN, Judd touted Trump’s support for the agents and their mission and his policy...

    EXCLUSIVE: The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has barred Democratic staffers from the House Oversight Committee from visiting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) facilities at the U.S.-Mexico border as part of a planned trip this week after committee staff allegedly were “disruptive” and refused to follow instructions during their last trip, Fox News has learned. Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., had sent his staff to visit border facilities for “oversight inspections” last week and planned to send staff again to view Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and CBP centers.

The United States restricts imports from countries with which it has an arms embargo, including China. The US imposed an arms embargo after the deadly 1989 crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Tiananmen Square. The CBP didn’t say to whom the parts were being shipped, who shipped them, and whether anyone would be charged in connection...

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents and their medical contractors do not administer influenza vaccines to migrants being held at detention centers along the U.S.-Mexico border, reports said Tuesday. “In general, due to the short-term nature of CBP holding and the complexities of operating vaccination programs, neither CBP nor its medical contractors administer vaccinations to those in our custody,” the agency told The Hill in a statement. Children receive the flu vaccine once they are transferred from CBP to Health and Human Services (HHS) custody, the CBP spokesperson said. Earlier this month, doctors from Harvard, Johns Hopkins and other medical...

    Customs and Border Protection (CBP, which I still keep calling the Border Patrol for some reason) has been coming under fire from liberals over immigration enforcement, though probably not as frequently as ICE. Some recent criticism over the handling of illegal immigration raids on seven food processing companies in Mississippi appears to have set CBP back on their heels a bit. During an interview on State of the Union this weekend, acting CBP commissioner Mark Morgan pushed back on the description, saying that people shouldn’t call them “raids.” He prefers the term targeted law enforcement operations.

    The Pharr International Bridge was temporarily closed Friday morning after a group of undocumented immigrants attempted to rush the bridge to enter the United States, according to a release from Customs and Border Protection. “At about 4 a.m. today[Friday], a group of 47 undocumented individuals attempted to illegally enter the United States in three waves via the Pharr International Bridge. Ignoring commands to stop, the group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles and disabled the concertina wire affixed to the barrier,” states the release. (more at link)
