    The number of unaccompanied minors in federal custody is already overwhelming border facilities.he border crisis that anyone could have seen coming is finally here, thanks largely to the actions of the Biden administration over the past few months. It turns out that promising to roll back Trump-era immigration restrictions, signing a raft of executive orders to that effect, and then introducing a mass amnesty bill sends the message that if you can get across the U.S.-Mexico border, you can stay.Plenty of families in Mexico and Central America have gotten the message. According to a recent report in the Washington Post,...
  • Texas Democrats Issue a Stark Warning for Biden Over His Immigration Policies

    Rolling back President Donald Trump's tougher immigration policies was one of President Joe Biden's main goals once his administration officially started. Talks of providing amnesty to millions of illegal aliens during the first 100 days in office and rescinding the "Remain in Mexico" policy – where those applying for asylum remain in Mexican until a judge determines their fate – prompted Central American caravans to start up once again.But three Congressional Democrats in Texas are warning Biden about the backlash these decisions will have. They are concerned that the Democratic Party's "messaging and policy proposals are too much, too soon,"...

    On a Saturday morning in August 2019, a 21-year-old White man with ear protectors, safety glasses and an AK-47-style rifle walked into a crowded Walmart in El Paso, Tex., his pockets bulging with ammunition. He had to driven hundreds of miles across the state, prosecutors say, because he wanted to kill Latinos.Kevin McAleenan, the acting Homeland Security secretary, was at a Coast Guard picnic in Virginia that day, and soon the urgent messages began arriving. A sinking feeling of horror set in as the magnitude of the attack became clear. “It was devastating,” he said.Twenty-three people were murdered in the...
  • About Those 11 Iranian Migrants Captured at Mexico-Arizona Frontier…What Homeland Security Does

    Many Americans might have felt surprised by recent news that U.S. Border Patrol in Arizona caught 11 Iranian migrants who crossed the southern border from Mexico. But this crossing is not surprising in one insular quarter: an international cadre of intelligence and law enforcement officers who work on this chronically misunderstood threat problem for the American homeland security establishment. For them, southern border crossings by Iranians, as well as by migrant travelers from other countries of terrorism concern, like Syria, Iraq, Pakistan, Yemen, and Somalia, trigger an almost routine response the public never sees.My new book, America’s Covert Border War,...

    A speeding car has been filmed almost disintegrating as it hit the United States border in footage from the crash that killed the driver and a disabled vendor. The 27-year-old male motorist from Santa Ana, California, was pronounced dead at the scene after crashing into a metal barrier as he attempted to cross into the US in a closed lane at the San Ysidro Port of Entry just after 2pm local time last Tuesday. Security footage shows the moment his car is reduced to a wreck after striking ...

    With the migrant crisis reaching epic proportions, the issue of illegal immigration has been thrust back into the limelight. Due to the increasingly high-profile nature of this issue, I think it is an important one for the West to examine through criminal justice, national security, and economic lenses. As I discussed in a recent article about armed gang members on the border, the border is growing more dangerous and chaotic by the day. For that reason, border security is crucial for national security. As Ronald Reagan once said, “a nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.” History...

    The U.S. government collected its first fine as part of a new bilateral deal that forces Mexico to prosecute anyone who damages the fence along one part of the southern border and send penalties collected to the United States. American and Mexican leaders reached a deal a year ago this week to start arresting, prosecuting, and seeking damages from anyone caught attempting to destroy border barrier in southeastern California, where Border Patrol made $396,000 worth of repairs at 1,300 cuts in its fence in fiscal 2019.
  • Under A Biden Administration, Expect An Explosion In Illegal Immigration; In fact, Another Border Crisis Is Already Brewing

    One of the big changes we should expect under a Joe Biden administration is an explosion of illegal immigration and a renewed crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. The reason for this is simple: the immigration and border policies the Trump administration has put into place over the past four years have succeeded in driving down illegal immigration, and Biden has promised to reverse nearly all of them.Throughout the campaign, Biden was forthright about his plans to dismantle TrumpÂ’s immigration and border security agenda. His team is now planning to carry out those plans, including a 100-day moratorium on deportations,...
  • DHS: Border Wall Going Up ‘Faster Than Ever Before,’ Roughly 10 Miles Per Week

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) put out a statement updating America on the construction of the border wall, reporting it is being built at about “10 miles per week.” The statement, issued Tuesday, claims the Trump administration “is building (a) new wall and doing so faster than ever before.” “Now construction is moving at a rate of approximately 10 miles per week, setting the administration up to complete its year-end goal with time to spare,” it reads. That year-end goal constitutes a 450-mile section at “some of the highest-trafficking and therefore most critical sectors of the southern border for...

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — A federal judge on Monday blocked U.S. Customs and Border Protection employees from conducting the initial screening for people seeking asylum, dealing a setback to one of the Trump administration’s efforts to rein in asylum. The nationwide injunction will likely have little, if any, immediate impact because the government has effectively suspended asylum during the coronavirus pandemic, citing public health concerns. The Trump administration argued that designated CBP employees are trained comparably to asylum officers at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, another agency within the Homeland Security Department. U.S. District Judge Richard J. Leon in Washington...

Gonzales, to be buried in the small border city of Del Rio where he worked, was one of...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Border Patrol’s parent agency said Friday that it fired four employees and suspended 38 without pay for inappropriate social media activity following revelations of a secret Facebook group that mocked members of Congress and migrants. The investigation began in July 2019 after posts surfaced in a secret Facebook group called “I’m 10-15.” They questioned the authenticity of images of a migrant father and child dead on the banks of the Rio Grande River and depicted doctored images of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez purporting to perform a sex act on President Donald Trump. Customs and Border Protection said...

    What could they possibly have been planning? No doubt they just wanted to do the jobs that Americans refuse to take, right? While Leftists continue to deny that border control is a national security issue, recently a Muslim migrant from Jordan named Moayad Heider Mohammad Aldairi was sentenced to three years in prison for sneaking at least six Yemeni Muslims into the United States across the border from Mexico. Their intentions were unlikely to have been benign. Judicial Watch reported back in 2016 that police in a New Mexico border town arrested a woman they described as an “Islamic refugee”...

    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...

    Federal law enforcement agents on the southern border expect Border Patrol personnel to get hit by the coronavirus but say they have not been briefed on how the agency will continue its national security operations and whether that includes their having to report to work sick. Five Border Patrol agents who work in Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California told the Washington Examiner that for weeks, the agency’s Washington and regional headquarters had done little to explain how they should protect themselves on the job beyond basic personal protective equipment. Agents fear they are at risk for the COVID-19 virus...
  • 2,060 Chinese Nationals Apprehended At U.S.-Mexico Border in Fiscal Year 2019

    The Border Patrol apprehended 2,060 aliens from the People's Republic of China crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal year 2019, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The Border Patrol defines an "apprehension" as "the physical control or temporary detainment of a person who is not lawfully in the U.S. which may or may not result in an arrest." A Border Patrol datasheet lists the number of "total apprehensions" it made in fiscal year 2019 by both the citizenship of those apprehended and the border sector where the apprehension took place. In fiscal year 2019, the Border Patrol apprehended a...

    Rush Limbaugh stated during his radio show last week that he believes the deadly coronavirus wreaking havoc around the world is part of an effort to “bring down” President Trump. The conservative commentator and recent Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient made the claim as the stock market slumped over concerns about the coronavirus continuing to spread. “It looks like the coronavirus is being weaponized as yet another element to bring down Donald Trump,” Mr. Limbaugh said during his syndicated radio show. It seems that Rush is not far from the truth. President Donald Trump also told reporters Saturday the United...
  • Greyhound to stop allowing Border Patrol agents to conduct immigration checks on buses without warrant

    Greyhound said Friday it would prohibit U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents without a warrant from boarding its buses to conduct immigration checks as bus companies continue to face pressure from civil rights advocates over the practice. The announcement comes after an Associated Press report said a Jan. 28 Border Patrol memo contradicted Greyhound's stance that it had to allow the agents on its buses under federal law. In this Thursday, Feb. 13 photo, agents for Customs and Border Protection board a Greyhound bus headed for Portland, Ore., at the Spokane Intermodal Center, a terminal for buses and Amtrak in...

    The entire border needs a wall. Without the entire border walled, the illegal invaders can come through the unwalled areas and, once here, have the freedom of movement throughout the rest of the lower 48 states. But also the detention centers are not something that solves the problems. The Democrats and the MSM have no shame. With every passing day, we see more and more evidence of their hypocrisy, intellectual dishonesty, and evil behavior. Remember when the liberal media shared a touching photo of the little girl Yanela Denise, crying as a U.S. Border Patrol agent patted down her mother....
