    EDINBURG, Texas (CBP) – Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol (RGV) agents disrupted three human smuggling events and encountered two large groups resulting in 322 apprehensions. On April 26, Falfurrias Border Patrol Checkpoint agents, after a K-9 alert, referred a truck pulling a flatbed trailer carrying large metal sided boxes to the secondary inspection area. Agents observed a vent, approximately 16 inches by 6 inches on one of the boxes and removed the vent to reveal 40 migrants in a seated position trapped inside. The metal sided box had to be broken apart by unscrewing multiple bolts using a power...

    The White House declined to comment Monday on the results of a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) investigation that reportedly found no border patrol agents were guilty of whipping migrants crossing the Southern border in September 2021. White House press secretary Jen Psaki refused to address reports showing the agents involved with the accusations were cleared of criminal wrongdoing, despite accusations from President Joe Biden and other administration officials that they were guilty of whipping or “strapping” the migrants.

    During her appearance on Jonathan Capehart's MSNBC show on Sunday, NPR journalist Maria Hinojosa claimed it was vital to "get the narrative straight and correct" But Hinojosa herself then proceeded to perpetrate a false narrative. She accused border patrol agents of having "whipped" black Haitian migrants. This, despite the fact that the agents have been cleared of charges, and the photographer who took the photos in question having said that they had been misconstrued, and that he had never seen any whipping.

    Through 2019 and 2020 the women worked to increase Republican turnout across South Texas, with Flores running Hispanic outreach. For the most part, they toiled out of the spotlight. Even when De La Cruz announced a congressional bid, in 2020, to try to unseat two-term Democratic congressman Vicente Gonzalez, national and state Republicans paid little attention to her campaign... In 2016 Donald Trump hadn’t even mustered 30 percent of the vote in Hidalgo County, where Gonzalez’s district was anchored. Then everything changed. The world of South Texas politics was rocked in November of 2020, when Trump far surpassed expectations in...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) called President Biden's Strategy for handling the war in Ukraine "brilliant." Asked to briefly describe the strategy, she said "no one knows what it is. That's what makes it brilliant. The incoherence of simultaneously announcing sanctions, but continuing to purchase oil from Russia defies comprehension. The combination of talking tough while avoiding any effective countermeasures has got to be driving Putin nuts." Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton bolstered the Democrat meme by asserting that "the President's response has been well executed. He has been able to rally our NATO allies to echo his tough...

    President Joe Biden is on target, with policies at once vapid and cynical, to allow more than 2 million illegal migrants across the southern border into the United States this year — the worst influx since records began 97 years ago. In October, Customs and Border Protection officials intercepted 164,303 people crossing the Mexican frontier. They come from 150 different countries, increasingly from the Eastern Hemisphere, and most are simply economic migrants. People head here primarily for the understandable reason that they’d prefer to live in comfort in a rich country......They don’t make coherent, let alone plausible, claims to be...
