    With everything going on in the world, the border is still a major issue that the Biden Administration refuses to address. There are immigrants, wait no, terrorists, crossing the border daily. Texas Senator Ted Cruz explained the issues at the border. Border Patrol agents are “frustrated” because “they risk their lives catching dangerous people, and they turn around and their political superiors just let them go.” “And the next day, they go back and catch the same people all over again,” he said. Minors are often accompanied by older men, and it is unclear whether they are actually related to...

    Mexican industry leaders call for end to Texas state inspections forcing drivers to spend the night outside ports of entryMexican industry leaders are calling for an end to Texas border truck inspections given they are hindering components assembled in Juarez from reaching U.S. distribution centers. They also are concerned that limited operating hours at smaller ports of entry outside the El Paso-Juarez urban sprawl are jeopardizing drivers and their trucks. “The cargo vehicles that spent the night (waiting to cross the Santa Teresa, New Mexico port of entry) had their tires slashed,” said Manuel Sotelo, president of the Juarez Transportation...

    Child sex trafficking is said to be the world’s fastest growing criminal enterprise, with an estimated two million child victims being abducted and sold into sexual bondage annually. The true numbers may be even higher; the dark world in which child traffickers operate does not lend itself to easy quantification. And despite occasional acknowledgment of this massive crisis by the United Nations, the U.S. State Department, and the FBI, relatively little has been done to bring the trafficking kingpins to justice or to break up the trafficking networks.According to a 2012 UNICEF report, around 30 million children were trafficked globally...

    Tim Ballard, the former Homeland Security agent whose experience rescuing child sex trafficking victims inspired the film "Sound of Freedom," accused the U.S. government of helping to facilitate cartel-led child trafficking rings in the United States by releasing young migrants who crossed the southern border into their care. "It is shameful that I have to say this, but I spent 12 years working for the U.S. government to rescue children. Now, thanks to these policies, I have to rescue children from the U.S. Government," Ballard said Tuesday on "The Story." "This is dangerous," he warned. "This is a crisis." Moments...

    Ballard spoke about a woman who was "sold and raped for money up to 30 to 40 times a day for five years." Tim Ballard, former DHS agent, founder of Operation Underground Railroad and the man depicted in the hit anti-trafficking film Sound of Freedom, told Congress on Wednesday that Biden administration's handling of the crisis at the US border has essentially made it a "child-trafficking delivery service." The comments came during a Committee on Homeland Security meeting, to assess the human cost of Biden's border crisis. "Our federal agents who work in the southern border are women and men...

    The House Homeland Security Committee released the findings of the second part of their probe Thursday into Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, finding he “enriched the cartels,” according to a copy of the report obtained by the Daily Caller News Foundation. Under Mayorkas’ leadership as DHS secretary, cartels have gained more control over the southern border and smuggled more individuals and contraband across it, according to the report. The first phase of House Homeland Security Chairman Mark Green’s probe focused on Mayorkas’ alleged “dereliction” of his duty as secretary of DHS.

    Algerian officials claim that “multiple” warning shots were fired before its military directly shot at a group of jet skiers who had crossed over from Morocco, killing two of them. The deadly encounter occurred Tuesday after five jet skiers drifted into Algeria territory while exploring the waters around the Moroccan resort town of Saidia. “Given that the maritime border area is witnessing intense activity by drug smuggling gangs and organized crime, Coast Guard members fired warning shots,” Algeria’s defense ministry said in a statement. “After multiple attempts, shots were fired on a jet ski,” officials added. One of the survivors,...

    Global wildlife trafficking is on the rise, adding a dimension to transnational crime and increasing the risk that U.S. corporations could unwittingly become entangled in the illicit trade. A new white paper by Moody’s Analytics highlights the growing risk for private enterprise, and the growing involvement of transnational crime in wildlife smuggling. “Brands sometimes are involved in supply chains and they might not truly know who their supplier is,” said Richard Graham, Third Party Risk Management lead at Moody’s Analytics. “If you’re doing business with someone that is a supplier that is involved in some sort of wildlife trafficking, via...

    Migrant smugglers are growing increasingly desperate and violent — heavily arming themselves, donning body armor and even firing at US border agents — to get their illegal customers from Mexico to California. The recent uptick in drastic tactics by coyotes, or people-smugglers for hire, includes an Aug. 18 incident in which a Border Patrol agent tried to stop a group of migrants crossing into California through the Otay Mountain Wilderness, US authorities said. A suspected smuggler fired multiple shots at the agent, US Customs and Border Protection said in a statement, claiming the criminals’ desperation is being driven by the...

    The flight of money from Egypt has become a growing concern as many wealthy individuals seek to move money out of Egypt and keep their fortunes out of the eyes of the authorities. The Zambian Drug Enforcement Commission (DEC) intercepted an aircraft carrying five million dollars in cash and over 100kg of suspected gold at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport near the capital Lusaka on August 14, according to several sources. Found on the plane were $5,697,700 in cash, five pistols, seven magazines, 126 rounds of ammunition, 602 pieces of suspected gold weighing 127.7 kg, and equipment for measuring gold. Later,...

    (Photo by Alexandra Gorn on Unsplash) It’s shocking, though in no way overstated, to conclude that Americans today are living through a time of total spiritual warfare, when virtually all of the most contentious and consequential issues are neither political, ideological nor psychological. They are flat-out spiritual – good versus evil. There’s the early sexualization of innocent children in the nation’s public schools. And the mass-hysteria transgender craze that seduces mentally fragile teenagers into undergoing mutilating and irreversible surgeries. And the love affair with killing human babies in their mother’s womb. And the massive foreign invasion of America, purposefully engineered...

    The amount of fentanyl crossing the southern U.S. border every month is more than enough to kill every single American. Fortunately, the Biden administration is focused on important things like overseas drag shows and the fake climate crisis.U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reported the seizure of about 2,100 pounds of illicit fentanyl at the border in June. To put that in context, Epoch Times cited the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to explain that a single kilogram of fentanyl, or 2.2 pounds, can potentially kill a stunning 500,000 people.Dr. Donna Nelson, an organic chemist and University of Oklahoma professor, told...

The Biden administration allowed the program to expire in May. “On day one when Trump gets back in office in...
