    Department of Homeland Security officials are gathering information on the migrant caravan moving through Mexico to the U.S. border via paid undercover informants and the monitoring of group text messages, NBC News reports. The migrants use WhatsApp message groups to coordinate their journey, according to the report. DHS officials have joined these groups to monitor the caravan’s size and activity, combining the information with that of paid informants and DHS officials working with the Mexican government to prepare for the migrants’ arrival. The caravan consists of roughly 4,000 migrants, mostly from crime-ridden Honduras, seeking a new life in the U.S....

    Six Bangladeshi nationals were apprehended at the Texas border with Mexico in two separate incidents within a 12-hour period over the weekend. Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents during the month of October apprehended at least 75 Bangladeshi nationals, an increase of more than 10 percent over October 2017, Breitbart News reported During the fiscal 2018 year, which ended Sept. 30, Laredo Sector agents apprehended 668 Bangladeshi migrants, a rise of nearly 270 percent over the previous year’s total. Breitbart, noting the hundreds of miles of open river border in South and Central Texas, said the migrants paid up to $27,000...
  • Migrant Complains About Free Food She’s Been Given By Mexico, Calls It Pig Food

    Deutsche Welle’s Spanish language channel, DW Español, traveled to Tijuana in order to interview some of the migrants living in the camps. A reporter asked one of the migrants how the living conditions were in the camp. The woman complained about the food she had been given in the camp, calling it food for “pigs” and saying she would “die of hunger” if she did not eat it. “The truth is, the food that they’re handing out here is terrible,” the woman complained while holding up the food platter. “Look at what they’re giving us. Refried beans, as if they...

    Mexican protesters took to the streets on Sunday to protest the growing influx of Central American migrants who have made their way to the border city of Tijuana. In the most recent protest, groups of Tijuana residents want to evict the migrants from a shelter where approximately 2,000 Central Americans are staying. The Tijuana government set up the shelter as the city witnessed a reported buildup of federal and state police forces while the numbers of migrants continue to climb. In two videos shared online by U.S. journalist Emily Green, dozens of protesters, some wearing wrestling masks and bandanas, can...

    When do too many become too much? Why must the world’s miseries become America’s responsibilities? At what point, does the immigrant line end? In the past month, emotional writers around the United States tell us that we must accept and care for the 14,000-strong immigrant caravan chugging toward our southern border. More open-borders activists plan to fight the military in order to allow the migrants into the United States. The Catholic Church encourages its flock to violate our borders at every level. The Pope, standing behind the walls of the Vatican, scolds us for building a wall on the Mexican...

    I recently did an interesting interview with Dan Gorenstein, a health care reporter with station WHYY and NPR's radio business show Marketplace on the issue of tax-financed health care for unauthorized immigrants [1]. The piece that aired did not include any of my remarks, but I thought it would be useful to give readers my perspective on this knotty policy question based on both background research I did to prepare for the interview and follow-on research I did in light of the questions posed in the interview. Current federal policy is to prohibit federal tax funding of health care to...

    A victory for Democrats this midterms, President Donald Trump warned before the election, is a victory for a terrible, dangerous idea: open borders. Trump is entirely making this up, to be clear, but he’s hammered this point repeatedly. “The Democrat platform is a 2018 socialism, open borders edict,” he declared at a rally in Cleveland the night before the election. In October, he informed a Kansas crowd that “Every single Democrat in the U.S. Senate has signed up for the open borders, and it’s a bill, it’s called the ‘open borders bill.’” (No, they haven’t, and there’s no such bill.)...

    A U.S. appeals court in California ruled on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s administration must continue a program begun under former President Barack Obama that protects hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children. The decision by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals preserves the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program introduced in 2012 that has shielded from deportation a group of immigrants dubbed “Dreamers” and given them work permits, though not a path to citizenship. The ruling represented another legal defeat for Trump over DACA, although he has won...

    ISLA, Mexico — A 4,000-strong caravan of Central American migrants traveling through Mexico split up into several groups with one spending the night in a town in the coastal state of Veracruz and other migrants continuing toward the country’s capital. The divisions came during a tense day in which tempers flared and some migrants argued with caravan organizers and criticized Mexican officials. They were upset that Veracruz Gov. Miguel Angel Yunes had reneged on an offer late Friday to provide buses on Saturday to leapfrog the migrants to Mexico City. The migrants trekked to the town of Isla, about...

    Trump has shown strong leadership as commander in chief on this issue. But there is one issue that even the military cannot solve: our own legal masochism. The caravan is now suing us in our own federal courts. If the Trump administration even legitimizes this lawsuit by sending DOJ attorneys to defend the case rather than simply treating this potential judge as a lawbreaker of all judicial precedent, no army in the world can stop the invasion by lawfare.

    American Thinker ^ | November 4, 2018 | Jonathon A. Moseley
    t is absurd to claim that our military cannot defend our borders. Yet "That is illegal!" shout internationalists who never wanted our U.S. border protected anyway. Activists proclaim that the U.S. military is crippled under an 1878 law, the Posse Comitatus Act, found at 18 U.S.C. § 1385. We can do nothing but watch helplessly, they argue, as foreigners flood across the frontiers. The Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 prohibits the use of the military for law enforcement purposes. There is actually a lot of scholarly analysis published by legal experts in law review journals. But most political rhetoric is...

    Michael Vickers, a veterinarian and rancher in Falfurrias, Texas, says he won’t let outside militia onto his property and he doesn’t think such groups will be trusted by most area landowners. Gun-carrying civilian groups and border vigilantes have heard a call to arms in President Trump’s warnings about threats to American security posed by caravans of Central American migrants moving through Mexico. They’re packing coolers and tents, oiling rifles and tuning up aerial drones, with plans to form caravans of their own and trail American troops to the border. “We’ll observe and report, and offer aid in any way...

    Illegal aliens traveling on the caravan from Central America on Thursday filed a lawsuit against President Donald Trump, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Justice for what they say is a violation of their constitutional rights. The lawsuit was filed in Washington, D.C. on behalf of six illegal aliens and their children, bringing the total number of plaintiffs to 12, Fox News reported.According to the caravan riders, the Trump administration violated their Fifth Amendment, which says "no person… shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property,...

    By their own admission they are coming here seeking higher pay, large flat TVs, a car. And free health care which is obviously much better in Cuba. In other words, the invaders want a raise. From the former president who described the religiously-inspired Jihadi butchering of unarmed Americans as “workplace violence,” we had many more years of workplace violence. For this president the enemy of the people were clearly not Jihad and the people who committed it in San Bernardino, Fort Hood, or Boston.

    The caravan of migrants making its way through Mexico is “kind of a normal event” and the United States ought not to reinforce its border against them, a United Nations official said on Friday. […] Joel Millman, a spokesman for the U.N.’s International Organization for Migration (IOM), told a U.N. briefing in Geneva there had been similar caravans for many years, and the group was still hundreds of miles away from the United States. “So (using) words like ‘invasion’ and things like that is assuming that this is a new phenomenon which is a drastic emergency, and I don’t think...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Friday backtracked from his suggestion a day earlier that U.S. troops sent to the U.S. border with Mexico would be free to fire on migrants who throw rocks at them, saying that rock-throwers would only be arrested. "They won't have to fire. What I don't want is I don't want these people throwing rocks," Trump told reporters outside the White House. "If they do that with us, they're going to be arrested for a long time."

    A dozen migrants traveling by foot from Honduras to the U.S. to seek asylum filed a class-action lawsuit Thursday against President Trump, the Department of Homeland Security and others, claiming a violation of their due process under the Fifth Amendment. The Fifth Amendment states that, "no person… shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law." A recent PBS report cited former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who ruled in 1993 case that "it is well established that the Fifth Amendment entitles aliens...
