    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...
  • Mexico pays US in new deal to jail or fine people caught cutting border fence

    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

    The Federalist ^ | 11/12/2020 | John Daniel Davidson
    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...
  • Judge blocks asylum screening by border protection agents

    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 slowly wound its way south from the Central Texas hospital where he died of Covid-19, through small towns along the way where mourners lining the roads saluted their last respects. 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...

  • Texas Border Patrol agents nab three Muslims from Iran trying to cross illegally into US

    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....

    The 27-year-old woman and her family were spotted walking about a mile east of the Otay Mesa Port of Entry about 2:30 p.m. Sunday. It is believed they used a ladder to get over the border fence, said Border Patrol spokesman Jarrett Decker. Once they got to the Chula Vista station, the woman, the baby’s father and two children were being examined for a routine medical assessment when the woman went into labor, officials said.

    Democratic Massachusetts Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Ed Markey called on the Trump administration to “reverse course” on a decision to deploy special Border Patrol tactical units in sanctuary cities to assist in the apprehension of illegal aliens. Warren and Markey delivered a joint letter addressed to the chiefs of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Customs and Border Protection (CBP), and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Saturday, deriding a decision by the administration to deploy CBP officers to sanctuary cities across the country. The two lawmakers also demanded answers to a number of questions about the operation.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration is deploying highly trained officers to boost arrests of unauthorized immigrants in cities, including Los Angeles, Chicago and New York, the latest move in a battle against localities that adopt “sanctuary” policies to protect them from deportation. Members of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Border Patrol Tactical Unit will be among the officers deployed to cities to assist Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE. They will also be sent to San Francisco, Atlanta, Houston, Boston, New Orleans, Detroit and Newark, New Jersey, CBP spokesman Lawrence Payne said in a statement. The special...

    There are a lot of statistics Mark A. Morgan, acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner, uses to show how Trump policies have helped to cut illegal immigration into the United States. But there are two that he feels really make clear the victory his agency has had in the past year, and he highlighted them in a small meeting Tuesday. First is daily apprehensions, a number that hit 4,600 at the height of the latest crisis in May. That has now dropped to 1,300. What's more, he said, the 21-daily average is below 1,000, a 78% cut. "That's a...
