    A 25-year-old man was sentenced to 60 years in prison for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl in Tomball on Jan. 21, 2018, according to Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg.

  • Trump cases on census, asylum seekers, border wall head to Supreme Court Friday

    WNEP News (Pennsylvania) ^ | October 16, 2020 | MARK SHERMAN and JESSICA GRESKO Associated Press Published
    Trump administration policies on the census, asylum seekers and the border wall, held illegal by lower courts, are on the Supreme Court's agenda Friday. The most pressing case before the justices when they meet privately, and by telephone because of the coronavirus pandemic, involves the census. They are considering the Trump administration's appeal to be allowed to exclude people living in the U.S. illegally from the population count that will be used to allocate seats in the House of Representatives — and by extension the Electoral College — among the states for the next 10 years. The administration wants the...

    Border Report ^ | Oct 14, 2020 | Julian Resendiz
    Unauthorized immigration is creeping up along the southwest border despite emergency measures to prevent the illegal entry of people, especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The number of migrant apprehensions in September rose by more than 7,000 compared to August, which itself saw an increase of almost 9,100 arrests from the previous month. The Border Patrol and CBP detained a total of 57,674 unauthorized and inadmissible migrants this past September... U.S. Customs and Border Protection Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan said those attempting to come into the country illegally are mostly single adult economic migrants from Mexico and other countries who’re disregarding...

    Heavy machinery works on Sunday, Oct. 11 on an ongoing project to level a mountainside in the Coronado National Forest in preparation for construction of a segment of the Trump Administration’s border wall through western Santa Cruz County. The worksite seen here is just northwest of Border Monument 127, which marks the point at which the U.S.-Mexico border changes trajectory from an east-west orientation and angles northwest toward Yuma. A spokesman for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers previously told the NI that the mountainside seen here is being leveled by contractor Fisher Sand and Gravel to serve as a...

    The border wall is well underway in southern New Mexico. And James Johnson couldn’t be happier. The third-generation farmer, wearing sunglasses, blue jeans and dusty work boots, beamed as he talked about the wall that winds alongside the southern edge of his farm, about 12 miles west of Columbus. “It’s beautiful. I mean, we’re ecstatic,” Johnson, the owner of Carzalia farms, told the Journal... Just over a year ago, Johnson told the Journal he was “eager” to see the wall built and even granted the federal government an easement to get the ball rolling. Johnson said that construction began on...
  • Shift to Armed Human Smuggling in South Texas Worries Feds

    Over the course of a week, law enforcement in Roma, Texas, documented two armed human smuggling incidents. One is particularly raising eyebrows among authorities. Most of Miguel Aleman, Tamaulipas, is now under the control of Los Zetas aka Cartel Del Noreste (CDN). This is leading to a shift in smuggling tactics. The first incident of concern took place on September 26, when a camera captured migrants crossing the border illegally. The image identified a red, four-door GMC truck. As law enforcement responded, the driver sped away until a bailout was performed. A search of the vehicle led to the seizure...

    The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday ruled that President Trump’s use of emergency powers to allocate millions of dollars in funding for the construction of a southern border wall was illegal, the latest blow to the Trump administration’s effort to limit immigration. In the 2-1 decision, the court upheld a December 2019 district court summary judgment in favor of a request from the advocacy groups the Sierra Club and the Southern Border Communities Coalition against Defense Secretary Mark Esper, acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf and “all persons acting under their direction ... from using military construction funds...

    The Border Patrol stressed all the structures served a purpose - providing a basis for the current design being implemented throughout the U.S.-Mexico border. “U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) constructed eight different wall prototypes to be assessed and evaluated for performance, constructability, and deployability to satisfy the U.S. Border Patrol’s (USBP) operational requirements. At the conclusion of the testing and evaluation, the information gathered enabled USBP to select attributes which have been incorporated into the border barrier toolkit and may be applied to future construction project designs. Because this location is where CBP is constructing Secondary wall, the prototypes...

    Over the past couple of years, much of the liberal media have tried to dismiss President Donald Trump's new border as not really "new" because there was already a barrier there, even though that barrier was shoddy, ineffective and sorely in need of redesign and replacement. On Thursday afternoon. MSNBC host Katy Tur and correspondent Jacob Soboroff admitted the error of their ways as they fretted over the "consequences" of the new and improved border wall. Tur introduced the segment: "weeks out from the election, NBC News found that so-called "replacement" isn't as insignificant as Democrats or some fact-checkers have...
