  • Republicans Raise Terror Alarm After Illegal Immigrants Caught With Explosive Devices

    11/01/2023 3:27:18 PM PDT · by Tench_Coxe · 48 replies
    Republican senators have sounded the alarm on the Biden administration's border policies after Border Patrol agents caught illegal border crossers who were carrying explosive devices that Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said were "tailor-made for terrorism." Mr. Barrasso, who is the Senate Republican Conference Chairman, made the startling revelation at a press conference on Oct. 31, alongside Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and Pete Ricketts (R-Neb.), following their recent visit to the U.S.–Mexico border.

    Like he always does, Joe Biden wants more money in his hands from Congress.After actively scheming to imprison his political opponents, Biden says it's time to let bygones be bygones and embrace the national unity, calling his new request for $105 billion in war cash a "smart investment that's going to pay dividends for American security for generations." A smart investment? Everything he seeks spending money for is a "smart investment." In this context, though, the 'ick factor' was strong, because he sounded as though he was trying to sell us a timeshare.Buried within his request was what appeared to...

    TUCSON - How secure are U.S. military installations? You would think the answer is: very. But, as the News 4 Tucson Investigators uncovered, one installation, right here in southern Arizona, continues to face potential outside security risks, and the problem doesn't seem to be getting any better. Fort Huachuca is only 15 miles north of our state's border with Mexico. The Army post covers more than 73,000 acres. In many parts, the terrain is steep and rugged. Much of the work that goes on at Fort Huachuca is classified but, as the News 4 Tucson Investigators learned, keeping people who...
  • Eye in the sky Aerostat system detects aerial incursions into U.S. for decades

    Sierra Vista Herald ^ | Derek Jordan
    FORT HUACHUCA — For decades, the large, helium-filled aerostat has floated silently against the horizon above Sierra Vista, time enough for both long-time residents and new arrivals to possibly lose sight of the skyborne equipment’s mission as an important link a chain of detection spanning the entire international border. The Tethered Aerostat Radar System, or TARS, traces its origins back to the 70s and 80s, when traditional, ground fixed radar systems were being evaded by the newly airborne efforts of South American drug cartels.
  • The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers - 2023 Cost Study (150.7 Billion)

    The Fiscal Burden of Illegal Immigration on United States Taxpayers - 2023 Cost StudyKey HighlightsAt the start of 2023, the net cost of illegal immigration for the United States – at the federal, state, and local levels – was at least $150.7 billion. FAIR arrived at this number by subtracting the tax revenue paid by illegal aliens – just under $32 billion – from the gross negative economic impact of illegal immigration, $182 billion. In 2017, the estimated net cost of illegal migration was approximately $116 billion. In just 5 years, the cost to Americans has increased by nearly $35...

    Karine Jean-Pierre on Thursday continued gaslighting the American people by claiming Joe Biden has taken the border crisis “very seriously” since day one. Title 42, a Trump-era program forcing migrants seeking asylum to remain in Mexico is expiring next week. Illegal immigration is already out of control thanks to Joe Biden. More than 6 million illegal aliens have crossed over the US border since Joe Biden was installed in January 2021. KJP told reporters on Thursday that Joe Biden takes the border crisis seriously even though 700,000 to one million illegals have assembled at the border ready to surge across...

    Republican South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott introduced legislation Wednesday that would redirect $15 billion that was meant to help pay for 87,000 new Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employees and spend it on security measures along the southern border instead. The Daily Caller first obtained the legislation, which is titled the Securing Our Border Act. The bill would specifically fund border inspections to better equip law enforcement to track down drugs and other illegal items or substances before they enter the United States. The bill would also fund border wall construction and other technologies to help with tracking and enforcement efforts...

  • Biden's migration headache EXPLODES: a record 242 million people across Latin America now want to leave, many eyeing the US, as border crisis intensifies

    The number of people in Latin America and the Caribbean who wish to migrate has jumped this past decade to 242 million, many eyeing the US, heightening fears about the border crisis. In 2011, only 18 percent of people in Latin America and the Caribbean wanted to permanently leave their homes. By 2021, that had risen to 37 percent of the region's 655 million people, Gallup polling shows. The desire to migrate rose faster in South America than anywhere else in the world. By the end of 2021, the share of Latinos wishing to migrate was on par with those...

    Colorado Republican Congresswoman Lauren Boebert revealed last night on Fox News that McCarthy could have already been sworn in as Speaker yet he refused a simple common-sense proposal from conservatives. This marks just another reminder that the Uniparty is completely responsible for this crisis. She told Fox News “Special Report” host Bret Baier she had endeavored to create “unity” to forge a conservative agenda supported by America. She said she and two others presented some simple requests including a border security bill, term limits, and reducing the federal debt. Yet the RINO squish rejected it all! Talk about shooting yourself...

    Eagle Pass, TX - Upon taking office in January 2021, President Joe Biden halted construction on the U.S. southern border wall, which greatly helps Border Patrol and local law enforcement cut down on illegal activity. As a result the Texas National Guard, deployed last summer through Governor Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star, has stepped in to fill the gaps with fencing lined with concertina or razor wire. “When you drive a tank through a chainlink fence, if it has concertina wire on top, it’ll stop that tank because that wire will get wrapped up on the sprocket, the wheels of...

    Ten Democrats have broken ranks with President Biden to side with the GOP over the ending of Title 42, a Trump-era border policy that allows for expedited deportation of migrants and prevents them from seeking asylum. "Right now, we have a crisis on our southern border. Right now, this administration does not have a plan. I warned them about this months ago," Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., told Fox News over the weekend. "It’s going to be, to be honest, it’s going to be a crisis on top of a crisis." Kelly is just one of several Democrats now speaking out...

    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.

    Former Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is accusing President Joe Biden of "intentionally" creating a border crisis, but said the administration was unable to properly execute the open borders strategy. Morgan also told the "John Solomon Reports" podcast on Monday that his former agents feel "demoralized" while the "borders are wide open" and "every aspect of our public health, safety, national security is being jeopardized." After Biden ends Title 42, the Trump-era migration mitigation measure, his administration is expecting as many as 18,000 illegal migrants to come to the southern border every day. Currently, between 7,000 and 8,000...

    U.S. immigration officials detained more than 5,000 migrants from Ukraine at the nation’s land, sea and air borders in March, with a significant increase in those seeking refuge at the U.S.-Mexico boundary, adding to the record influx of newcomers from Latin America and the Caribbean this year, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection figures released Monday. The tally — up from fewer than 1,150 the month before — marks the first official accounting of Ukrainians seeking refuge at the ports and borders since Russia’s invasion began Feb. 24. Many, if not most, Ukrainians have been released into the United...
