While you hear border jumpers’ numbers falling since President Donald Trump took office, America still houses anywhere from 15 to 20 million illegal aliens. They jump over the borders or they overstay their visas to melt into the big cities where they find enclaves in their own ethnic groups. Continue reading
NOTE: What follows in this first part of a multi-part series, is an opening overview leading to the event which created turmoil in D.C. and sector management. The Marines recieved a commendation, the agent was hamstrung which is becoming S.O.P. ~ JS
December 13, 1989, a night which will live in Infamy in the annals of U.S. Border Patrol History, albeit a very incongruous type of infamy. As a member of the Tucson Sector Emergency Response Team (ERT) specifically assigned to drug interdiction along the US / Mexico Border, I had the honor of being accompanied by a 3 man fire-team of US Marines. These Marines and I were assigned to set up an LP/OP (Listening Post/Observation Post) on a remote mountaintop in Southern Arizona, a 6 night mission in a very remote, rugged, mountainous area where drug smuggling was continually being encountered. So much so, that one could say the smugglers were entering our country illegally with impunity. They were literally, ‘running amuck.’
This area of Arizona is along the US/Mexico border and runs from the New Mexico State line to the California Border. The Tucson Station AOR (Area of Operations) are from 10 miles west of Nogales, Arizona, to 10 miles west of Sells, Arizona, an area running approximately 60-70 miles. This area is very mountainous and includes much of the Coronado National Forest, Federal lands to be exact. Continue reading
Louisiana GOP Sen. John Kennedy is stepping forward with a bill that would end the lottery-visa program, which has allowed luck and foreigners to pick 5 million unscreened people for legal immigration into the United States since 1990.
“It would be hard to design an immigration process that is more irrational even if you tried,” Kennedy told Breitbart News, just one week after a visa-lottery winner from Uzbekistan shouted “Allah Is Greater!” as he used a rented truck to murder eight people in New York. Kennedy continued: Continue reading
“We used to call this the soccer field,” says Theron Francisco, a newly appointed public affairs officer for U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
We’re gazing at the gravel road ahead of us and listening to the hum of a mariachi song being carried over the rusted fence where Southern California meets Colonia Libertad. Residents of the latter, an isolated community just east of Tijuana, use music to warn their neighbors that immigration officials are close by.
To our right is a steep canyon, devoid of vegetation and covered in dusty paths that slowly wind up and over the ridge. As I struggle to picture the barren hill being a playground for Mexico’s most popular sport, Francisco blames my age.
Back in the 1980s, dozens of Mexican immigrants would pause in the canyon to kick a ball around after they had illegally entered the United States. Few of them were more worried about border patrol than whether they could slip the ball past the goalie. Continue reading

As one of many who has served this nation for the past three decades as an agent with the United States Border Patrol, my partners and I have seen times when illegal immigration was not a major problem. In the early 1970’s the manpower of the U.S.B.P. was 2,000 on both the Northern and Southern Borders. Under congressional authority, Immigration and Nationality Act, we could question anyone as to their right to be or remain in the United States. This extended to all foreign visitors, immigrants from any nation in the world. The United States, similar to all civilized countries established immigration laws to protect citizens as well as legal immigrants. Continue reading
“Nothing proves to me more than this experience that we need to know who’s here with us,” Home Depot Co-Founder Ken Langone said after an ISIS-inspired terrorist used one of the company’s vehicles to go on a murder spree in New York City Tuesday.
Appearing on Fox News Channel, Langone said the suspect, an immigrant from Uzekistan who legitimately rented the vehicle from Home Depot, is proof that the U.S. immigration system is endangering Americans: Continue reading
Steve Bannon Calls Out GOP Establishment’s Push for Amnesty
The Republican establishment will “try to hide the football” in their latest effort to pass amnesty for nearly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded by an Obama-created federal program, says Breitbart News executive chairman and former White House chief strategist Stephen K. Bannon.
In a speech to the members of The Remembrance Project, an organization made up of the families of American victims who have been murdered at the hands of illegal aliens, Bannon exposed the latest efforts by GOP Senators and Congressmen to sell amnesty for illegal aliens to the American people while making false promises in exchange. Continue reading
The Immigration Act of 1990 permanently established the Diversity Visa category. The program benefits individuals from nations that send relatively few immigrants to the United States. Eligibility is straightforward: One needs only a high-school education or two years of work experience in certain jobs to qualify. Millions of people apply every year for the 50,000 green cards distributed by lottery, which does not take age, skills, language ability, or connection to the United States into account.
The recent terror attack in New York City reignited the debate surrounding the Visa Lottery. Sayfullo Saipov, the perpetrator from Uzbekistan, arrived in 2010 to the United States as a result of the lottery. Pundits from both sides of the aisle began to ask the same question: Why does the United States distribute 50,000 green cards in such a random manner? Continue reading
There are about 300 state and local governments with laws, rules, or policies that impede federal efforts to enforce immigration laws. But what exactly does that mean to the average American citizen? Since 2014, about 10,000 criminal aliens who were released because of sanctuary policies were arrested – again – for new crimes. That’s 10,000 preventable crimes. Sanctuary policies make us all less safe.
SIERRA VISTA, ARIZONA – Glenn Spencer is a general fighting a one-man war that, according to him, the American government doesn’t want to wage.
His battlefield is the border and his soldiers are drones, guided by seismographs and an almost-fanatical drive to develop a cheaper, more-secure system to “lock down” the U.S./Mexican borderland.
Spencer’s enemies are elusive, wily, and to him, alien. They are Latino border crossers, and whether children fleeing conflict, families seeking a better life, or suspected drug smugglers makes no difference. Spencer believes they constitute a threat large enough to warrant years of his life struggling to combat it. Continue reading
Today we investigate the incredible case of a US federal agent who survived a brutal attack by Mexican drug cartel thugs. It shows how violent cartels are wreaking havoc south of the border. But it also says a lot about serious shortfalls inside the US government which is still stonewalling on unanswered questions — six long years later. Continue reading
Section 1324a states: “Any person who knowingly hires/harbors/transports any illegal alien is guilty of a felony punishable by 10 years jail + $2000 fine per illegal alien + forfeiture of the vehicle or property used to commit the crime“.
Section 1324c states, “All officers whose duty it is to enforce criminal laws shall have authority to make arrests for a violation of any provision of this section” (affirmed US v Perez-Gonzalez 2002 Fed App 0360, 6th Circ.).
Section 1644, same title states, “No local ordinance, rule, or measure shall stop law enforcement officers from enforcement of this section” (affirmed Southern District Court of NY, US v Rudy Guiliani,1996).
A national tree services company will have to pay a a record fine after admitting that it engaged in a scheme to hire illegal aliens, federal prosecutors announced Thursday.
Asplundh Tree Expert Co., a suburban Philadelphia-based contractor that trims and removes trees around power lines, pleaded guilty Thursday to a federal criminal charge and was ordered to pay a total of $95 million, the biggest penalty ever levied in an immigration case. Continue reading
Anti-establishment Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore denounced the use of the term the open borders lobby and mainstream media have used to describe illegal aliens shielded by the Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Moore, during a debate with establishment-backed candidate Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL), said the term “DREAMer” to describe nearly 800,000 illegal aliens protected by DACA does not actually exist, because the temporary amnesty program was never approved by Congress. Continue reading
Mexico is sending a top cabinet-level diplomat to illegal alien-friendly California to help Mexican citizens living in the U.S. illegally avoid deportation in a post-DACA environment.
President Trump’s efforts to enforce immigration law and build a wall along the border have galvanized the Mexican government into action, and according to an Associated Press story, its top priority is to protect Mexican citizens living in the United States. Continue reading
Democrats are crying that 800,000 people that were assisted in breaking the law should not be deported. The Democrats claim these “kids” (many in their 20’s) are working, going to school and are in the military. Like everything else the Democrats says and Obama did, that is a lie.
“According to O’Brien, the DACA program was riddled with fraud and abuse from the beginning, where illegal alien applicants for the program allegedly lied on applications and were rarely caught by USCIS officials: Continue reading
DACA Timing – President Trump is Probing, Testing, Gauging, Timing for “The Big Ugly”…
As most know – I am a hard core anti-ILLEGAL American Citizen. We have legal ways to enter and to live in America. However we have allowed politicians to profit from their open violation of the EXISTING laws related to and governing Immigration. I see all those who PROFIT from the Illegal invaders as lower than those who embezzle from their employers… or those who shoplift rather than purchase the items they steal. I feel sorry for these children and young adults whose parents placed them in this situation but that is NOT of my doing and it is NOT my responsibility to foot the bill to keep them here. They need to return to the country they were brought from and then if they still want to come to America they need to follow the LEGAL avenue already set forth for them to come here. Continue reading
Latest nightmarish case leaves father of 3 killed in fiery crash
It’s the latest in a long list of illegal-alien crimes committed against Americans in just the last few years: A Mexican illegal alien who was deported from the U.S. seven times was charged with motor vehicle homicide after driving drunk and crashing his van on a Nebraska interstate, killing one passenger, a 58-year-old father of three.
Nemias Garcia-Velasco, 32, told police he was intoxicated at the time of the July 5 incident, having consumed 12 beers previously to the crash. Continue reading
Twenty-one cities, many of them sanctuary cities, have pledged to make 1 million immigrants American citizens by the end of 2017.
The “Naturalize NOW!” campaign, which includes liberal and progressive groups and elected officials, is aimed at preventing illegal immigrants from deportation under the Trump administration.
President Trump is not against legal immigration, but has promised to crack down on illegal residency in the U.S., especially of criminals. Continue reading
PIEDRAS NEGRAS, Coahuila — Two cartel gunmen fleeing from a raging gun battle with Mexican authorities ran through U.S. border security measures twice as they crossed into Texas and back; using their vehicle to ram barriers.
The cartel gunmen were able to cross into Eagle Pass through International Bridge #2 by running the security checkpoints. Shortly after they crossed back through a second bridge that was closed at the time. The gunmen used their vehicle to ram security barriers and later ditched it escape on foot. Continue reading
One Republican senator is proposing a new solution for sanctuary cities that do not follow the law: take some of their federal funding and transfer it to a budget for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall.
“How many innocent American lives must be lost before security becomes the first priority of immigration?” Sen. Luther Strange, R-Ala., asked the audience at an event Thursday at The Heritage Foundation titled “Securing the Border and Protecting Our Communities.”
“How many criminal aliens have to be released shy of justice being served for the rule of law to be affirmed as the first priority of a functioning society?” Continue reading
