Who Owns Border Death Truck Tragedy? Mexico!
By Michelle Malkin
National Review Online, July 26, 2017
Florida truck driver James Matthew Bradley isn't the mastermind of the human smuggling ring that led to the grisly deaths of 10 illegal immigrants in his rig, which authorities found at a San Antonio Walmart over the weekend.
He's just a cog in the machine.
Bradley may now face the death penalty for transporting up to 100 people crammed in the trailer of his 18-wheeler. But what about the open-borders overlords making a real killing off this insatiable racket?
I'm looking at you, America-bashing corruptocrats in Mexico.
. . .
When they're not busy trash-talking our laws, shooting at our first-line protectors or actively undermining our sovereignty, Mexican government bureaucrats are up to their eyeballs in narco-state corruption.
Please note that the federal criminal complaint in the San Antonio border death truck tragedy included the statement of one Mexican trafficking victim from Aguascalientes who told authorities he met a "smuggler linked to the Zetas" cartel at the Rio Grande, where they charged "11,000 Mexican pesos for protection and 1,500 Mexican pesos to cross by raft" before loading into Bradley's big rig of death. At the Walmart parking lot, a phalanx of six SUVs operated by the reputed Zetas-associated smugglers whisked away several groups of human chattel, who were marked with color-coded tape.

VIVA LA RAZA SUPREMACY?
In Santa Ana California, illegal aliens swarmed around in mobs invading schools, carrying out violent beatings and in one incident a county worker had a Mexican flag plunged into his chest.

HOW MANY MILLIONS DOES YOUR COUNTY PAY OVER TO THE INVADERS TO KEEP THEM COMING AND VOTING DEM FOR MORE?
We’ve got an even more ominous enemy within our borders that promotes “Reconquista of Aztlan” or the reconquest of California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas into the country of Mexico…. AND IT IS THE DEMOCRAT PARTY!
Map 1: Sanctuary Cities, Counties, and States
The sanctuary jurisdictions are listed below. These cities, counties, and states have laws, ordinances, regulations, resolutions, policies, or other practices that obstruct immigration enforcement and shield criminals from ICE — either by refusing to or prohibiting agencies from complying with ICE detainers, imposing unreasonable conditions on detainer acceptance, denying ICE access to interview incarcerated aliens, or otherwise impeding communication or information exchanges between their personnel and federal immigration officers.

Sanctuary Cities List
Sessions announced that state and local jurisdictions will lose access to certain federal law enforcement grants in 2017 if they prohibit officials from communicating with ICE, if they block ICE from interviewing jail inmates, and if they fail to notify ICE of the pending release of criminal aliens ICE is seeking to deport. These rules apply to the Byrne Justice Assistance Grants, which are the largest source of federal criminal justice funds for state, local, and tribal authorities; Trump has requested $380 million for 2018.

Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies and author of the analysis, notes, "The four largest Byrne/JAG grants in 2016, worth more than $10 million, all went to sanctuaries jurisdictions: New York City; Cook County, Ill.; the City of Los Angeles; and Philadelphia. The Department of Justice should cut them off unless they change their policies. Taxpayers should not be subsidizing local governments that interfere with immigration enforcement and endanger the public."
The Byrne/JAG grants are one of three programs now off-limits to sanctuaries. Last year, Rep. John Culberson, in his capacity as chairman of the House Appropriations subcommittee that controls DOJ's budget, imposed requirements for basic compliance with the federal law on sanctuaries for the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program, which offers partial reimbursement for the costs of incarcerating illegal aliens, and the Community Oriented Policing grant program. A number of jurisdictions have changed their policies as a result.
