Biden administration reopens Trump-era migrant children housing facility


Despite excoriating former President Donald Trump on the campaign trail over immigration policies affecting children separated from their families at the border, President Joe Biden appears to be adopting the same approach to the issue as his predecessor. According to the Washington Post, the Biden administration has officially reopened a housing facility for migrant children along the U.S.-Mexico border in Carrizo Springs, Texas, capable of holding hundreds of children.

“Dozens of migrant teens boarded vans Monday for the trip down a dusty road to a former man camp for oil field workers here, the first migrant child facility opened under the Biden administration,” the Post reported on Monday. “The emergency facility — a vestige of the Trump administration that was open for only a month in summer 2019 — is being reactivated to hold up to 700 children ages 13 to 17.”

The move has been in the works since earlier this month, CNN reported, characterized by an administration spokesperson to the outlet as a necessary evil as immigration officials grapple with an overflow of illegal crossings taking place at the country’s southern border.

“Fully remedying [Trump’s] actions will take time and require a full government approach,” a senior administration official said, urging patience.

Government officials similarly told the Post that the camp is needed to temporarily house children amid the coronavirus pandemic and the current surge of border crossings. Never mind the fact that Biden’s lax immigration policies instigated the border surge in the first place. In both cases, Biden administration officials are attempting to put a nice spin on the move. But what’s happening in this case is obvious, at least to CNN reporter Priscilla Alvarez, who acknowledged, “While administration officials have condemned Trump’s actions, they’re still relying on them as they sort out next steps.”

Despite the administration’s best efforts to cast the move in a positive light, progressive immigration lawyers and advocates are also calling it out for what it is.

“It’s unnecessary, it’s costly, and it goes absolutely against everything Biden promised he was going to do,” Linda Brandmiller, a San Antonio-based immigration lawyer who represents unaccompanied minors, told the Post. “It’s a step backward, is what it is. It’s a huge step backward.”

“When I read they were opening again, I cried,” said Rosey Abuabara, a San Antonio immigration activist. “I consoled myself with the fact that it was considered the Cadillac of [migrant child] centers, but I don’t have any hope that Biden is going to make it better.”

Mark Weber, a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services, the agency that handles migrant children, also made clear that the good care given to the children at such facilities has been consistent between administrations, though the Trump administration got a particularly bad rap from left-wing media.

That fact is especially pertinent given the Post’s coverage of the new development under Biden. In its report this week, the facility is described in delicate terms, a far cry from the “kids in cages” language used by the Post during Trump’s presidency, as noted by Fox News.

“Headlines from 2018 include, ‘The American tradition of caging children,’ and ‘The real reason we’re locking children in cages,'” Fox News recalled.

Kids in Cages: Biden Opens Gated Compound for Illegal Immigrant Children — Democrats and AOC Silent

It’s just like the good ol’ days under Barack Obama.

The Biden administration opened a gated migrant facility for illegal immigrant children this past weekend in Carrizo Springs, Texas. The camp will hold up to 700 illegal immigrant children. The facility was open for one month during the Trump years and then it was shut down. Democrats were very, very upset about caged kids during Trump’s tenure. They completely ignored it under Obama.

The need to hold illegal alien children in compounds is the direct result of reversing President Trump’s highly successful border policies, which they described as “hardline.” And now, here we are again.

USA Today has more on the facility.

The facility in Carrizo Springs, Texas, will house up to 700 migrant children within the next two weeks, according to a statement Tuesday from the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the agency within the Department of Health and Human Services that is responsible for migrant children. The temporary Influx Care Facility will be used for children ages 13 and older who have been medically cleared of COVID-19, the statement said.

The move came after President Joe Biden signed a raft of executive orders aimed at unwinding the Trump administration’s hardline immigration policies, including establishing a task force to reunify children separated from their parents or guardians at the border under former President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy.

As he seeks to fulfill his campaign promise to swiftly undo Trump’s immigration actions, Biden is facing hurdles because of the rise in migrant apprehensions at the Southwest border and reduced capacity at facilities over COVID-19 concerns.

Democrats lied over and over about the kids in cages meme during the Trump years.
Now they’ll just ignore it.

More…

Dummy AOC took the lie to new heights.

It’s not an issue when Democrats are in charge.

San Diego Border Patrol Intercepts Second-Largest Shipment of Meth, Fentanyl Ever Caught


Published 6 hours ago on  By

Customs and Border Patrol agents intercepted a drug shipment that is the second-largest of its kind ever to be busted by law enforcement at a San Diego port of entry on Sunday.

A truck that was supposedly carrying medical supplies was searched at the Otay Mesa border crossing on Sunday evening. A canine alerted law enforcement to the presence of drugs when the truck was passing through the port of entry, and federal agents discovered that it was carrying a truly massive load of narcotics and drugs.

Within the truck’s freightage were 1,816 packages of criminal contraband. A CBP spokesperson informed NewsNow Las Vegas that the agency intercepted 3,014 pounds of methamphetamine, 64 pounds of heroin, 29 pounds of fentanyl powder and almost 37 pounds of fentanyl pills, worth an estimated $7.2 million.

The truck’s driver, a 47-year old Mexican national, was arrested.

DEA Special Agent in Charge John W. Callery cited the massive drug bust as an example of the dangers criminal smuggling organizations pose to the nation in a statement to Fox News. This massive seizure is testament of what law enforcement agencies can do when we combine forces — prevent over $7 million worth of deadly drugs from entering our country, thus saving countless lives from addiction and overdose death.

Fentanyl, which is most commonly produced in China, has been smuggled into the United States in large quantities in recent decades, fueling the opioid epidemic in communities throughout the country. The synthetic opioid is marketed to consumers seeking a cheap alternative to medical painkillers and heroin.

Over 600 Alleged Members of Mexican Cartel Arrested Thanks to Trump Executive Order

Over 600 alleged members of Mexico’s Cártel de Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG) have been arrested in the last six months thanks to an executive order signed by President Donald Trump in 2017.

The crackdown effort, named “Project Python,” is an interagency operation to take a tougher stance against Mexican cartels by the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). The effort has lead to 600 arrests, 350 indictments and “significant seizures of money and drugs” over the past few months.

The cartel, according to the DOJ, has been active in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, Houston and Atlanta.

“Project Python marks the most comprehensive action to date in the Department of Justice’s campaign to disrupt, dismantle, and ultimately destroy CJNG,” Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski said in a statement obtained by The Hill.

According to Benczkowski, the project was made possible by Trump’s executive order which directed federal law enforcement to use the Threat Mitigation Working Group to crack down on cartels.

“When President Trump signed an Executive Order prioritizing the dismantlement of transnational criminal organizations, the Department of Justice answered the call and took direct aim at CJNG. We deemed CJNG one of the highest-priority transnational organized crime threats we face,” he said. “And with Project Python, we are delivering results in the face of that threat for the American people.”

On Wednesday, the agencies also announced a superseding indictment against Nemesio Ruben Oseguera Cervantes, the leader of the cartel. His son was extradited to the US from Mexico last month on drug trafficking charges. His daughter has also been arrested for financial crimes.

328 Chinese Nabbed Trying To Enter U.S. Illegally At Southern Border


Posted  |

Data from the Department of Homeland Security shows that 328 immigrants from China were caught trying to he border illegally so far this year. Three other people from South Korea were arrested at the border, The Washington Times reported.

The report comes as the coronavirus continues to spread across China, where there are more than 80,000 confirmed cases and 2,902 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins. In South Korea, there are more than 6,000 active cases and 35 deaths.

“All told, more than 1,000 migrants a day are caught attempting to sneak in illegally from Mexico, which detected its first case last week, and since has identified five others,” The Times wrote. “And if that many are being caught each day, an unknown but significant number are getting through undetected, Border Patrol agents say.”

“The journey to the U.S. border puts migrants in poor conditions,” a Homeland Security official told The Washington Times. “We don’t know if they have come into contact with someone who has the flu, there is no passport, medical history, or travel manifest.”

President Trump has suggested that he might move to close the southern border, but so far has made no attempt to do so.

Wrote The Times:

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad F. Wolf raised the issue Tuesday with the House Homeland Security Committee, saying that illegal immigration presents a unique threat compared to legal travelers from China, who are being screened on arrival.
“The individuals that are coming in at our 11 airports that are being funneled, we have very good information of their travel history, of their medical history. We’re not going to have that same set of fidelity for the individuals if this continues to grow at the southwest border,” he said.
Mr. Wolf also said the spread of the virus in Mexico creates new complications, after the U.S. has forced tens of thousands of asylum-seekers to wait in that country while their cases are proceeding in American immigration courts.
Late last week a federal court issued a ruling that could result in thousands of them being admitted immediately. The ruling was stayed, but Mr. Wolf said it could be a danger spot should the courts demand their entry.

Feds: Nearly 900 Migrants with Mumps Disease Arrived in U.S. Last Year

Since September 2018, nearly 900 migrants arriving at the United States-Mexico border have been confirmed or suspected to have mumps, a federal report reveals.

A report by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) details how the contagious mumps disease has spread across 19 states in 57 detention facilities among migrants — those illegally crossing the southern border and those seeking asylum.

Between September 2018 and August 2019, about 898 cases of migrants who had arrived to the U.S. and were in federal detention were reported to have mumps. Another 33 cases of mumps were reported among staff members at the various detention facilities.

Roughly 44 percent of the cases reported occurred in detention facilities located in Texas while the average age of a migrant with mumps was 25 years-old and 94 percent were male migrants.

CDC officials state that the disease has largely spread to other migrants while in detention with 84 percent of cases reported having been likely contracted while in federal custody and five percent having been likely contracted before the migrant was apprehended by federal officials.

As of August 2019, CDC officials say there are ongoing mumps outbreaks among migrants at 15 detention facilities in seven states.

In June, Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kevin McAleenan admitted that border crossers and illegal aliens are being released into the interior of the U.S. without undergoing basic medical exams or disease tests, Breitbart News reported.

A report issued by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) in 2017 outlined urged the Trump administration to enact a slew of policies to prevent a disease outbreak in the U.S. caused by mass immigration.

“Most illnesses are spread by contact with infected people, livestock or agricultural produce,” the FAIR report states. “As a result, researchers have concluded that the international movement of people is a significant factor in disease outbreaks: ‘Mobile populations can link zones of disease emergence to low prevalence or non-endemic areas through rapid or high-volume international movements, or both.’”

DHS Orders Massive ‘Surge’ of Agents to Southern Border Due to Overwhelming Influx


Published | Ay

Due to the overwhelming number of migrants attempting to cross into America from the southern border, the Department of Homeland Security is taking action. They are sending 750 additional agents to the border.

Maybe this will open up some Democrat eyes.

Then again, no, no it won’t.

Here’s the DHS press release:

Today, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen issued a memorandum to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Kevin McAleenan outlining new steps the agency must take to combat the growing security and humanitarian crisis at the southern border.

“The crisis at our border is worsening, and DHS will do everything in its power to end it,” said Secretary Nielsen. “We will not stand idly by while Congress fails to act yet again, so all options are on the table. We will immediately redeploy hundreds of CBP personnel to the border to respond to this emergency. We will urgently pursue additional reinforcements from within DHS and the interagency. And we will require those seeking to enter the United States to wait in Mexico until an immigration court as reviewed their claims.”

Continued:

The Secretary ordered Commissioner McAleenan to undertake emergency surge operations and immediately increase its temporary reassignment of personnel and resources from across the agency to address the influx of migrants. According to the directive, the CBP Office of Field Operations shall accelerate its planned reallocation of up to 750 officers to Border Patrol Sectors that are affected by the emergency. Moreover, CBP is directed to explore raising that target, is authorized to exceed it, and shall notify the Secretary if reassignments are planned to exceed 2,000 personnel.

Secretary Nielsen further directed CBP to immediately expand the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), a DHS initiative to return aliens to Mexico to wait during the pendency of their U.S. immigration proceedings. The Secretary directed CBP to return hundreds of additional migrants per day above current rates to Mexico, consistent with U.S. law and humanitarian obligations. This increase in returns shall include individuals apprehended or encountered at or between POEs. Moreover, the agency is directed to plan for an expansion of MPP beyond the locations in which it currently operates in California and Texas.

President Trump tweeted:

Democrats, working with Republicans in Congress, can fix the Asylum and other loopholes quickly. We have a major National Emergency at our Border. GET IT DONE NOW!

In just five minutes, 400 illegal aliens were apprehended in El Paso. Again…four hundred apprehended in five minutes. Democrats say there isn’t a problem at the southern border, but the numbers beg to differ. And numbers don’t lie.

LOOK:

12 Senate Republicans decided to vote against President Trump’s national emergency at the southern border. Not one, not two, not three…12. Trump, as you’d imagine, was not at all pleased.

Enter Trump with the only word he really needed to say:

Enough said. “Veto,” says it all, doesn’t it?

Trump has to fight against his own party in a way Barack Obama never did. Democrats stick together while Republicans have minds of their own, for better or worse. In this case, worse.

45 then elaborated a bit:

I look forward to VETOING the just passed Democrat inspired Resolution which would OPEN BORDERS while increasing Crime, Drugs, and Trafficking in our Country. I thank all of the Strong Republicans who voted to support Border Security and our desperately needed WALL!

Pentagon Drops A Bomb — Sends THOUSANDS More Troops to Southern Border (Details)


Reported By | February 3, 2019

President Donald Trump will more likely than not declare a national emergency at the southern border. This means he’ll be able to protect Americans by securing the area.

On Sunday, just before the start of the Super Bowl between the St. Louis Rams and New England Patriots, the Pentagon announced they are sending nearly 4,000 more troops to the border. One has to imagine Speaker Pelosi is up in arms.

As Trump noted at the end of January:

The Pentagon announced Sunday a deployment of about 3,750 troops to the U.S. border with Mexico, as President Donald Trump continues to press the need for stronger border security amid a surge in migrants from Central America.

The additional troops will bring the total number of forces supporting the border mission to approximately 4,350, according to estimates provided by the Department of Defense.

The troop deployment, which was approved by Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan on Jan. 11, will last for 90 days. The border mission includes mobile surveillance capability as well as the emplacement of approximately 150 miles of concertina wire between ports of entry. The Pentagon first approved the deployment of active-duty troops to the Mexico border in October, on the heels of the U.S. midterm congressional elections.

There are a number of reasons President Trump wants to protect America’s southern border. Chief among them, of course, is keeping the American people safe. Aside from not knowing who could be entering the country illegally, border security officials have dealt with sick migrants by the thousands.

One person has a flesh-eating bacteria. Others are “potentially diseased.”

Illegal immigrants stopped by U.S. Customs and Border Protection are coming sick and potentially diseased, as 2,224 have required hospitalization in the past month, including one with with flesh-eating bacteria, according to reports.

A man detained in a remote New Mexico border area, diagnosed with necrotizing fasciitis, a potential fatal infection, was among the thousands requiring hospitalization after being stopped at the border by CBP since Dec. 22.

The 2,224 sick – representing 5.3 percent of those detained at the U.S.-Mexico border in that time – were treated for the flu, parasites, tuberculosis, and pneumonia, according IJR.com.

Without proper border security, people from foreign nations will always be allowed to sneak into America. At least with the adults in charge, the issue is being talked about. When Democrats hold power, this whole fiasco gets swept under the rug because they know they’re increasing their voting block for generations to come.

A group of hundreds recently managed to tunnel under a portion of the border wall in Arizona before turning themselves in.

From Daily Wire:

Border patrol agents in Arizona this week were overwhelmed after the largest caravan of migrants ever to cross into the United States tunneled beneath the border wall near San Luis, Arizona. According to ABC News, the migrants immediately turned themselves into Customs and Border Protection.

Media’s cloudy memory of tear gas-tossing Border Patrol


Written by Billy Davis, Steve Jordahl (OneNewsNow.com) | Thursday, November 29, 2018

MSNBC on tear gas useIt’s not breaking news that the Obama-worshipping media napped for eight years and now a conservative newspaper is waking them up with a history lesson.

The media and Democrats expressed collective outrage over the weekend when U.S. Border Patrol agents fired tear gas canisters after a mob of rock-throwing migrants attempted to breach the border near a point of entry in San Diego.

“Tear gas across the border against unarmed families is a new low,” Brian Schatz, a U.S. senator from Hawaii, lectured on Twitter.

Trump and Obama at WH post-electionYet it’s not new despite Democrats’ outrage — whether real or faked — and media reports such as a Huffington Post news report set to ominous music.

A day after the tear gas was deployed, The Washington Times reminded the public that the Obama administration also used tear gas or pepper spray against foreign nationals at the U.S.-Mexico border. That non-lethal action was done so frequently, the Times said, that it averaged once per month during President Obama’s two terms.

The story’s claim was rated “Mostly Trueby fact-checking website Snopes, which found CBP agents used tear gas 1.3 times per month on average during Obama’s last five years. The lopsided Obama-era numbers and lopsided denouncements against Trump weren’t lost on the White House, either.

“Let’s not forget,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told the media, “that this isn’t the first time that non-lethal force like this has been used.”

While the media was seemingly aghast at the Trump administration, media watchdog Media Research Center was watching when ABC, NBC and CBS completely ignored the data unearthed by the Times.

“The story was actually broken by The Washington Times and what they did was actually just kind of simple journalism,” says MRC spokesman Scott Whitaker. “They didn’t have any scoop. They just went and checked the record.”

He attributes the lack of consistency in the media to the collective hatred of Trump — Trump Derangement Syndrome — and says that skewed news coverage is why the “Big Three” ratings remain in the tank, and why Americans don’t trust the media to be honest with them.

This Weeks Ann Coulter Letter: “The Irish Aren’t Red-Headed Mexicans”


disclaimerCommentary by Ann Coulter  |

In an interview with NPR last Friday, Trump’s chief of staff John Kelly described the illegal aliens pouring across our border in the most gentle manner imaginable. He said that illegal aliens aren’t “bad people,” but also “not people that would easily assimilate into the United States into our modern society.” They are, he continued, mostly rural, poor, unskilled and illiterate. “They don’t speak English,” Kelly said. “Obviously, that’s a big thing.” 

Kelly violated the civic religion of treating every non-American as better than an American — a potential valedictorian, Medal of Honor winner and Nobel Prize recipient. Naturally, he was called a “racist.”

So what was the point? You’re going to be called a “racist” no matter what you say, so why not be honest: Illegals are self-entitled law-breakers and thieves, stealing jobs and government benefits meant for our own people.

Our cliche-driven media huffed and puffed about Kelly’s presumed descent from immigrants. CNN’s Don Lemon said, “But like most Americans, Kelly comes from a family of immigrants, doesn’t he?”

If you’d read “Adios, America!” Don, you’d know this is PC nonsense. As late as 1990 — a quarter-century into Teddy Kennedy’s plan to remake our nation into a Third World hellhole — half of the population traced its roots to the Americans of 1790. We’re a real country, made up of the people who created it, much like other countries.

There were Irish here at the time of our founding who fought in the Revolutionary War. I’m related to one.

CNN’s John Berman said: “(I)f I remember my high school American history — and I do — America in the midst of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century was built on immigrants.”

It’s as if nothing happened in America until 1850 — no Jamestown, no Declaration of Independence, no Constitution, no creation of a brand-new civilization out of mud.

Long before America experienced its first immigrant wave in the 19th century, this was already a wildly successful country — rich, literate and free (with one glaring exception, soon to be corrected in the only war ever fought to end slavery). We’d won a war with Great Britain, conquered the West, and invented electricity, refrigeration, suspension bridges and a democratic republic.

Twitter lit up in response to Kelly’s inoffensive remarks, with idiots pointing out that THE SAME THING WAS ONCE SAID ABOUT THE IRISH!

Yes, and the people who said it were right. Let’s not sugarcoat what wonderful immigrants the Irish were.

All immigrants have been a problem in their own way. Italian immigrants brought us organized crime, something America had never experienced before. Jewish immigrants brought us radicals, communists and anarchists, setting off bombs all over the place. Irish immigrants brought poverty and shocking levels of crime — also William Brennan and Teddy Kennedy, the two men who did more than any others to wreck our country.

In the draft riots of 1863, New York City’s Irish exploded in feral violence over the Emancipation Proclamation, fearful that they would soon have to compete with freed blacks for jobs.

The Irish ran wild, lynching blacks and burning black establishments to the ground. As described in Leslie M. Harris’ book “In the Shadow of Slavery: African Americans in New York City, 1626–1863,” the Irish rioters “made a sport of mutilating the black men’s bodies, sometimes sexually. A group of white men and boys mortally attacked black sailor William Williams — jumping on his chest, plunging a knife into him, smashing his body with stones — while a crowd of men, women and children watched.”

Luckily for the Irish, there were no ethnic activist groups leaping in to excuse their bad behavior. President Lincoln sent in federal troops to crush the savage uprising. (Hey, President Trump! Lincoln is a very popular president!)

And these were European immigrants, most of whom spoke English, contrary to the claptrap you’ve heard in reaction to Kelly’s remark this past week. Today we’re getting peasants who not only don’t speak English, they don’t even speak Spanish and are also illiterate in their own dialects.

The Irish were driven out of their country by a one-time calamity — the potato famine. This wasn’t how they always lived. Starving poverty wasn’t their culture.

Still, the Irish were — at one time — among the poorest immigrants we ever got and the slowest to assimilate. It took 120 years, by political analyst Michael Barone’s estimate. (Imagine a time when our worst immigrants were the Irish!)

And they might still be a problem if The New York Times had demanded special rights for them, the ACLU had brought lawsuits on their behalf and the Southern Poverty Law Center had screamed “racism” whenever anyone noticed their bad behavior.

Instead, no-nonsense Irish priests knocked them upside the head and told them to sober up and go home to their wives. (Back then, the Catholic Church was not about “immigrant rights”; it was about cleaning up their own bums.)

By the 1950s, the Irish were out earning other Americans. Many reformed so well that they became Republicans.

That was then, this is now.

‘UNDOCUMENTED TERRORISTS?’ — Look Who’s Joined The ‘DREAMERS’ Across the Southern Border?

Guess who’s coming to dinner? (Hint: you won’t be serving pork!)

If ONLY someone could have warned this could happen? Like, perhaps, almost EVERYONE on the Right? And possibly Law Enforcement? Actually, Clashdaily reported on that. Terrorist cells being smuggled into America with some South American help. Kind of a big deal. Leftists didn’t care. Kept telling it was racist to want border security. And Islamophobic. Or something.

Well — just like clockwork, guess what happened?

The enemy spotted a vulnerability that we were unwilling to shore up, and they are exploiting it. Remember the “if it saves JUST ONE LIFE” bullsh*t they spew about guns? Maybe apply THAT argument HERE:

Between October 2015 and May 2016, the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency, a component of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), detained 5,350 African and Asian migrants along the U.S.-Mexico border, according to Reuters.

The apprehensions of illegals from Africa and Asia during that period marks an increase from those that took place in all of 2015 (4,261) and 2014 (1,831).

In its report, Reuters highlighted attempted entries into the U.S. by individuals from Pakistan, Syria, and Afghanistan, which the U.S. considers to be terrorism-linked countries.Do you want

Most countries considered by the U.S. government to be linked to terrorism are located in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. American border authorities are trying to stop the illegal migrants at the Mexico border with Guatemala, before they reach the United States.

So to recap: surge of people from terrorist nations showing up in Mexico. And the Democrat’s policy? “We’re too nice to secure the border!” Will those be the words with which she consoles the families?

Border Patrol Agent Slams Feds: ‘We All Know Who We’ve Captured… You Can’t Keep This Kind Of Information A Secret’

Imperial Islamic President ObamaRepresentative Duncan Hunter (R-CA) recently claimed that a high-level Department of Homeland Security official informed him of the capture of at least ten Islamic State terrorists on the Texas-Mexico border. A DHS spokesperson speaking with the New Republic unequivocally denied the Congressman’s claims:

“The suggestion that individuals who have ties to ISIL have been apprehended at the Southwest border is categorically false, and not supported by any credible intelligence or the facts on the ground,” said DHS spokesperson Marsha CatronB.S. Meter.

DHS continues to have no credible intelligence to suggest terrorist organizations are actively plotting to cross the southwest border.

But even the Islamic State has said they want to launch attacks directly on American soil and in recent weeks IS public relations arms on social media have urged followers to identify U.S. soldiers, track down their addresses and kill them and their families. Some reports of DHS chatter even suggest that America’s worst fears of a biological attack could be realized if IS militants infect themselves with Ebola or another deadly virus and deliver it to America in live hosts via the southern border.

And while Homeland Security has brushed off such threats and warnings as not obama-liar4-266x189credible, the border patrol agents being faced with thousands of undocumented immigrants attempting to cross into the United States daily have a completely different story to tell.

According to one agent who has chosen to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal, not only are they seeing scores of disease-ridden individuals being brought into the country, there is a real and present danger that members of terror organizations have already crossed into the United States.

Homeland Security and Obama Administration officials may categorically deny the claims, but this agent insists terrorist organizations are operating in Mexico and he says that he is aware of at least four Islamic State insurgents that have already been detained by the government:

A border patrol agent told the Examiner Wednesday evening that he knew of at least four ISIS insurgents that have been captured this past week.

“There could be more,” he said. “All I know is we (the border patrol agents) know what we see and do, even if the Feds don’t want to acknowledge it.”

“We have stepped up our searches on vehicles, under, over and all-around because we believe they may be trying to bring in explosive bombs and devices,” the agent said. 

“Why would we be so cautious if the possibility was not there?”

“We all know who we have captured,” he continued. “As much as they want it quiet, you can’t keep this kind of information a secret very long. We have families here.”culture of deciet

The report comes on the heels of another whistleblower speaking out recently about the seriousness of the threat. In an interview for the documentary Back To The Border, insider Zach Taylor suggests that what’s happening in the south is a controlled event being facilitated by top-level officials.

The problem as I see it… and as apparently CDC, Health and Human Services, and Department of Homeland Security… are trying to make this a controlled situation.

They’re anticipating a large national crisis.

When you see that FEMA is preparing for 200 million deaths in the United States that tells you something.

When you see that the government is controlling the supply of ammunition and that basic medical supplies are in short supply in southern Arizona, something’s wrong.

They are anticipating something drastic.

(Full Video Interview Here)

The official position of the Homeland Security apparatus is that our southern border has never been as protected from external threats as it is today.

That, of course, is laughable, given the fact that literally thousands of migrants from unknown origins are crossing into the United States every single day including those carrying diseases, drug cartel gang members, and Other-Than-Mexican security threats.

It is only a matter of time before some of them sneak in carrying a deadly virus, a dirty bomb or other weapon of mass destruction.

And when that happens we’ll most certainly hear the oft repeated narrative of, “no one could have seen this coming or prepared for it.”

Mexican Government Complains About Texas National Guard… Rick Perry Ignores Them

obama-border-is-open-378x257Texas Gov. Rick Perry decided that President Obama’s inaction regarding the border crisis, which in reality is a strategy being employed to pass amnesty, was no longer acceptable, so he decided to do something about it.

Perry announced that he would be deploying 1,000 members of the National Guard to the border to help provide additional security and prevent more illegals from crossing over into the United States.

Many in Congress and in state governments across the country have been calling for President Obama to take such steps, but still he refuses to budge.

While many Americans are applauding the steps taken by the state of Texas to secure the border, the Mexican government seems to be a bit miffed.

Truth Revolt is reporting that the Mexican Foreign Relations Secretariat released a statement more or less whining that Texas wasn’t acting like a “good neighbor” by deploying the Guardsmen.

“Attention to the immigration phenomenon must be paid from a long-term regional perspective and based on the principles of good neighborliness and shared responsibility. The strategy for responding in an effective and humane manner to this phenomenon includes the necessary shared responsibility among the countries of origin, transit and destination of lost in translationmigration flows.”

In other words, continue to let illegals flood into your country so they become your problem to support and care for instead of ours.

So far it seems that Gov. Perry has elected to ignore the Mexican government and continues to move forward with his plan of action.

Good. If the Mexican government doesn’t like having the National Guard at the border, perhaps they should step up efforts to improve their economy and provide additional border security to keep people from crossing into the U.S.

Unfortunately, it appears that Mexico doesn’t want these individuals in their homeland, so they continue to allow the flow of illegal immigrants to continue without doing much to stop it.

The National Guard is necessary to help provide additional security and support for Border Patrol units who are overburdened by processing. What’s needed is an immigration bill that secures the border for good and sends illegals back home where they belong. One such bill is currently making its rounds in Congress, and hopefully it will find all the support it needs to be passed into law.

Please share this article on Facebook and Twitter if you agree with Gov. Rick Perry sending the National Guard to the border.

Why Is Obama Encouraging Illegal Immigration When We Can’t Take Care Of Millions Of Our Own Citizens?

Why Is Obama Encouraging Illegal Immigration When We Can’t Take Care Of Millions Of Our Own Citizens?

by Michael Snyder | Economic Collapse | July 8, 2014

For years, the Obama administration has been making it abundantly clear that it is a friend of illegal immigrants.  Border security is a joke, the federal government refuses to go after “sanctuary cities” even though they are breaking federal law, there is a website that instructs immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States, and the Obama administration has distributed flyers that tell illegal immigrants that their immigration status will not be checked when they apply for food stamps.  And Obama has even instructed officials to use “prosecutorial discretion” in deportation cases involving non-criminals.  In other words, Obama has been flashing a huge green light to illegal immigrants, and so of course our borders were going to be inundated with them.

DID YOU GET THAT? “…..there is a website that instructs immigrants how to sign up for welfare programs once they arrive in the United States, and the Obama administration has distributed flyers that tell illegal immigrants that their immigration status will not be checked when they apply for food stamps.President Obama is doing all this deliberately. Always remember that and let your Liberal meathead adversaries that fact.” JB 

Immigration-PiperApologists for the Obama administration will debate you all day about what Obama “intended” and what he didn’t “intend”, but there is no doubt about what message immigrants from Central America have been receiving.

For example, one young mother recently told the press that she heard that if you “go to America with your child, you won’t be turned away“.

And you can view video of a little boy from Central America telling an investigate reporter that he believes that Barack Obama has “given permission” for him to live in the United States right here.

It isn’t an accident that our southern border is literally being flooded with illegal immigrants right now.  Newspapers in El Salvador and Honduras have been publicizing how easy illegal immigration has become, and even the President of Honduras has said that people are coming to the United States for “Obama’s amnesty”.

Listen Up

When they arrive, thousands upon thousands of these illegal immigrants are using rehearsed answers that border patrol agents are hearing over and over again.  Word has spread that if illegal immigrants claim that they are “fleeing gang violence” that it is more likely that they will be allowed to stay.

What we are witnessing down on the southern border is really unprecedented.  It has been estimated that twelve times as many kids are crossing our borders illegally now compared to just a few years ago.

And they just keep on coming.

This is utter madness.

Now, please don’t think that I am anti-immigrant.  I am all for legal immigration.  This is a nation of immigrants and we will always need America the movie with hyperlinkimmigration.  But everyone should be required to come in through the front door.  Encouraging illegal immigration is simply a recipe for disaster.

If we keep the back door wide open, the truth is that we have absolutely no idea who is coming into our country.  Do we really want countless numbers of criminals, welfare parasites, drug dealers and gang members pouring into our cities?  According to the FBI, there are now approximately 1.4 million gang members living in the United States, and it has been estimated that illegal immigrants make up approximately 30 percent of the total population in federal, state and local prisons.

And why in the world would we not want to control the diseases coming into this country?  Over the past several weeks, it has been documented that some of the illegal immigrants that have been apprehended have scabies and tuberculosis.

Imperial President ObamaBut instead of sending them right back out of the country, U.S. officials are setting up camps for this tsunami of illegal immigrants.  In other cases, the federal government is simply putting them on buses and planes and shipping them all over the country.  The illegal immigrants are released into their new communities and are given papers which order them to eventually appear in court, but of course the vast majority of them never show up.  You can see a map that documents areas where the federal government has been shipping illegal immigrants right here.

The rational thing to do would be to secure our borders and to send a very clear message that illegal immigration is not welcome in the United States.

But instead of doing that, the Obama administration is actually bringing in a riot squad to deal with anti-immigration protesters.

During normal times all of this would be crazy enough, but right now we are at a point where we cannot even take care of millions upon millions of our own citizens.

“Did you get that? “……. we cannot even take care of millions upon millions of our own citizens.” Can you say, “Amen” to that? The Obama Administration, following the word-for-word outline of Cloward-Piven is systematically destroying the American economy so they can deliberately impose Socialism economy ideologies on the United States. At that point we will no longer be a free people. Tyranny will be the rule and law. Now can I get a “AMEN”? JB

Cloward Pevin with explanationWe are told that illegal immigrants do the jobs “that Americans don’t want to do”, but is that really accurate?

In this day and age, there is intense competition for just about any kind of a job.  Despite what the mainstream media says, the truth is that there hasn’t been a significant employment recovery in the United States.  As you can see from the chart posted below, the percentage of the working age population that is actually working is still far, far below where it was just prior to the last recession…

Employment-Population Ratio 2014

Yes, there has been a very slight bump in the numbers in recent months, but it is certainly no reason for celebration.  When the mainstream media declares that unemployment in America has been steadily going down, they are simply being disingenuous.  Right now things are only slightly better than they were during the worst times of the past several years.

And according to shadowstats.com, the broadest measure of unemployment is still well over 20 percent and has been steadily rising since the end of the last recession.

So no, there aren’t nearly enough jobs in the United States. (CLOWARD-PIVEN IDEOLOGY)

And thanks to competition from immigrant labor and thanks to the fact that millions of good jobs have been shipped overseas, the quality of our jobs continues to decline as well.  For much more on that trend, please see this article.

Needless to say, now is not the time to open up the floodgates to millions of immigrants that will need jobs to support themselves.  Many of our major cities are already so economically depressed that they look like war zones.  In fact, things have gotten so bad in Detroit that a plan is being considered to bulldoze a fifth of the entire city

In May, a group ominously titled the “Detroit Blight Removal Task Force” released a report claiming that around 22 percent of the city’s properties were “blighted” – vacant, damaged or considered dangerous. They also found that, of the 84,000 properties owned by public entities, just over 5,000 were occupied by squatters, making the city of Detroit, the report’s authors noted, “a very large and inadvertent landlord”.

The task force’s proposed solution is to demolish it all over the next five years and start again. Unfortunately, the plan doesn’t extend to rebuilding the properties – it’ll be down to private companies and developers to buy up the land and rebuild.

8For much more on the decay of our major cities, please see my previous article entitled “The Death Of The Rust Belt“.

Considering the fact that we are already having such a severe problem taking care of our current population, what do you think is going to happen to these waves of illegal immigrants as they attempt to settle in to communities all around the nation?

Ultimately, we are going to have to end up financially supporting a very large percentage of them too.

Right now, more than 20 percent of children in this country are already living in poverty, and 49 million Americans are dealing with food insecurity.

If Obama continues to encourage mass illegal immigration, those numbers are going to get much worse.

Government dependence is already at an all-time record high, and about half the country currently receives benefits of some sort from the federal government every month.

How much more weight can we put on the “safety net” before it breaks?  Just check out some more numbers about this crisis from one of my previous articles

  • Ten years ago, the number of women in the U.S. that had jobs outnumbered the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps by more than a 2 to 1 margin.  But now the number of women in the U.S. on food stamps actually exceeds the number of women that have jobs.
  • The U.S. government has spent an astounding 3.7 trillion dollars on welfare programs over the past five years.
  • Today, the federal government runs about 80 different “means-tested welfare programs”, and almost all of those programs have experienced substantial growth in recent years.
  • Back in 1960, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 10 percent.  In the year 2000, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages was approximately 21 percentToday, the ratio of social welfare benefits to salaries and wages is approximately 35 percent.
  • While Barack Obama has been in the White House, the total number of Americans on food stamps has gone from 32 million to nearly 47 million.
  • Back in the 1970s, about one out of every 50 Americans was on food stamps.  Today, about one out of every 6.5 Americans is on 7 (2)food stamps.
  • It sounds crazy, but the number of Americans on food stamps now exceeds the entire population of the nation of Spain.
  • According to one calculation, the number of Americans on food stamps is now greater than the combined populations of “Alaska, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.”
  • According to a report from the Center for Immigration Studies, 43 percent of all immigrants that have been in the United States for at least 20 years are still on welfare.

A lot of people that are trying to immigrate here illegally just want to make a better life for themselves, and I can appreciate that.

But a policy of making it incredibly difficult for honest people to come in through the front door while keeping the back door completely wide open for lawbreakers is a recipe for national suicide.

And right now we don’t have jobs for these immigrants.

We can’t even take care of the people that are already living here.

Something desperately needs to be done about this, but I wouldn’t hold your breath waiting for Obama to make a bold move to stop illegal immigrants from pouring over the border.

bundy ranch us flag

Immigration-PiperFree Republic founder Jim Robinson posted this on the popular conservative internet forum on Friday evening.  Militia units from California and Texas were joining together to defend the US southern border.

Ok, this is just the germination of the plan.

We have independent units from the Bolinas Border Patrol and the Central Valley Citizens militia joining forces with independent citizens militia units of Texas to defend our southern border in Texas, to protest Obama’s lawless open borders policies and to rally support for Governor Perry to officially call out Guard units and Texas militia units at his disposal to defend the border!! Lawsuits will not cut it. The invasion is happening now. Action must be taken NOW!!

Is Obama Allowing Illegals to Cross Our Southern Border an Encouragement of Domestic Attacks to Facilitate a Government Takeover?

Written by

By now, most of us on this side of the pen, or the display, or the microphone, have written or spoken of the Mexican-American border problem.

With thousands upon thousands of “children” crossing every week, it would seem that our southern border is wide open. Thanks to our president, the border patrol and other authorities are overwhelmed, leaving little if any manpower to patrol.

So, who else might be taking advantage of the Southern sieve? It certainly wouldn’t be Islamic terrorists, would it?

Now, we commentators have also written and spoken extensively of the Cloward and Piven strategy – a strategy to purposely overwhelm the system to the point of collapse. We have postulated that this is exactly what Obama is doing at our southern border.

Cloward Piven

I believe this to be true. But I also contend that this strategy may have dire consequences beyond just the illegal immigrant flood.

Already these illegals are being shipped all over the country to take up residence at military bases – Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma, California, and even Massachusetts. And these are the ones that we know about. No doubt the list of states will grow as more and more enter.

With the border wide open, anyone can cross. Now is the perfect time for terrorists to arrive and set up cells across the country.

WSB news in Atlanta claims that at least 300 Somali terrorists from the al-Qaeda affiliate al-Shabaab are already here, but their location is unknown. However, it is a fact that they are here.

Wake up America

As an aside: if a terrorist or group of terrorists crosses the border, will they get hassled or threatened by the drug cartels or traffickers. I wonder how that works. Does an Islamic leader from overseas call a Mexican drug lord and alert him that Mohammed al-Mustafa al-Bakiri al-Mohammed is heading your way and to steer clear or assist his passage? Maybe the Imam from an Islamic mosque in this country puts the word out. Maybe the Muslim Brotherhood, like UPS, loves logistics.

Obama defending muslimsThe next logical question to ask is; does the Obama administration know that this must be happening – that with the flood of “innocent children” there will be Islamists, bent on our destruction?

But, you may ask, “They’re only children, what could they do?”

The direct answer is nothing, but let’s not be naïve and assume the adults are being turned away.

So is Obama stupid enough to think that only “innocents” are crossing, or does he just not care?

And now for a little conspiracy fun.

Is Obama purposely allowing terror cells to form in the United States? Could it be that the destruction of capitalism and reformation into a state-controlled society is just not happening fast enough? Are they encouraging domestic strikes as a better/quicker way to facilitate a government takeover?

Is the ultimate goal martial law, temporary government control of everything and everyone? Of course, it would be temporary just long enough for most citizens to get used to the “new normal,” and then some form would become permanent.

Now look at where I’ve gone with this simple immigration rant. I’ve taken it from “dreamer” children to adults, to terrorists crossing the border, to them forming terror cells throughout the country, to domestic attacks, to temporary martial law, to permanent martial law.

Okay, I’ve completely lost my mind, and I’m partly kidding – partly – but just 10 years ago, would you believe we’d have a president who fancies himself a dictator – one who gets away with picking and choosing which laws to follow, or making up his own?

Would you believe that in America, what is currently happening at the border could actually occur?

As Obama continues to push the dictatorial envelope, maybe we should stop discounting anything as being beyond the pale
