    EXCLUSIVE — A once-in-a-century celebration commemorating the Border Patrol’s 100th anniversary later this month has been canceled over concerns stemming from an internal investigation into several top agents’ connection to Mexican businessmen. The Border Patrol’s national chief, Jason Owens, announced late Thursday that the gala in El Paso, Texas, next weekend would no longer take place despite several years of planning. “The gala event planned for May 25th in El Paso celebrating the Border Patrol’s 100 years of history has been canceled. All other events will proceed as planned,” Owens wrote in a post.Three insiders involved firsthand in the investigation...

    Interesting report, 8 minutes, on illegals from China coming to the US by a Singapore TV news source. One interesting thing was how they get kidnapped in Mexico and have to pay off ransoms. That’s in addition to $14K they’re paying the coyotes. They start off in Ecuador. 40,000 illegals from China have come in the last year.

    Former President Donald Trump leads President Joe Biden by twice his margin of victory in the Lone Star State four years ago in the contest for Texas’ 40 electoral votes, according to a new poll. A Marist College survey released on Tuesday shows Republican Sen. Ted Cruz leading Democratic opponent Rep. Colin Allred by six points in a crucial Senate contest as the GOP looks to recapture the majority in the chamber in November’s elections. In 2020, Trump defeated Biden in Texas by about 5.5 points, the narrowest victory margin for a Republican presidential candidate in a deeply red state...

    Joe Biden veered off-script during an interview with a Spanish-language radio station, appearing to admit the real reason he is allowing millions of illegal aliens to enter the United States. Since Biden took office, an estimated 11 million illegal aliens, the majority of whom are military-age males, have entered the U.S. Is that incompetence? Well, if you look at who benefits, it becomes clear that the border crisis is a strategic effort to get Democrats more voters. Biden admitted this during the interview. “It’s even a bigger influx now in terms of Hispanic voters! Err, Hispanic citizens,” Biden said. AUDIO:...

Beneath the paved floor of a plaza determined to be a court for Maya Ballgame, archaeologists have identified plants used for ceremonies. These plants have medicinal properties and are associated with religious use – including a plant with known hallucinogenic effects, whose use had never been previously seen in Maya contexts....

    The annual Little Village Cinco de Mayo parade was rerouted and then cut short Sunday after shots were fired along the parade route, officials said, though paradegoers still reveled the chance to celebrate Mexican culture and history. The Chicago Fire Department responded to the scene near Cermak Road and Washtenaw Avenue, but they found no one with injuries to take to the hospital. Chicago police worked with parade organizers to reroute the celebration, which was scheduled to start at noon, heading west along Cermak from Damen Avenue to Marshall Boulevard. Instead, the parade started closer to 12:30 p.m. south on...

    Texas Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar and his wife were indicted Friday on charges of conspiracy and accepting nearly $600,000 in bribes from foreign entities, the Justice Department announced. Prosecutors allege Cuellar and his wife, Imelda Cuellar, began accepting the roughly $600,000 in bribes beginning as early as December of 2014 from an oil and gas company owned by Azerbaijan's government as well as a bank headquartered in Mexico City. While Cuellar's wife allegedly propped up sham front companies on the promise of providing consulting services to the two companies in order to launder the payments, she "performed little to no...

    Sometimes it's hard to be a woman, to paraphrase Tammy Wynette. Down in Mexico, it's awful to read the crime statistics. This is the story:According to new figures from the Mexican Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System’s (SESNSP) monthly report on gender violence in Mexico, six women were murdered per day on average during March 2024. With 200 intentional homicides committed against women in March, alongside the respective 200 and 221 incidents recorded in January and February, Mexico registered a total of 621 murders during the first quarter of 2024. Despite March’s slight decline in homicide figures, the...

    Even as all eyes are on the geographic Middle East, Iran’s agent, Hezbollah, has set up shop in Latin America and is heading here. The dangers from the steady stream of millions of unvetted migrants crossing illegally into our country should be clear to everyone. However, the most understated threat is that of terrorist infiltration. Reports of tens of thousands of military-age Middle Eastern men coming through should heighten everyone’s concerns about the potential for nation-ending terrorism. The Mexican cartel drug trafficking is far worse than most might think. Terrorist organization Hezbollah has partnered with the cartels and is active...
