In what officials caution is now a dangerous and even deadly crime wave, Phoenix, Arizona has become the kidnapping capital of America, with more incidents than any other city in the world outside of Mexico City and over 370 cases last year alone. In fact, kidnappings and other crimes connected to the Mexican drug cartels are quickly spreading across the border, from Texas to California. The majority of the victims are either illegal aliens or connected to the drug trade. ED STRAKER

THE IMMANENT INVASION - TENT CITIES COULD PREVENT MORE "CATCH and RELEASE"..... BUT WHAT ABOUT TENT CITES FOR AMERICANS WHO ARE HOMELESS???

Tent Cities Could Prevent Caravan of Asylum-Seekers from Becoming ‘Catch and Release’ Beneficiaries
Tent cities built along the United States-Mexico border could prevent a caravan of about 1,500 asylum-seekers from Central America from becoming the beneficiaries of the ongoing “Catch and Release” program, wherein foreign nationals are released into the U.S. while they await immigration and asylum hearings.
A caravan of 1,500 Central Americans, mostly from Honduras, are arriving in the U.S. this week, most likely through ports of entry as asylum-seekers, as Breitbart Texas reported.
Already, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has geared up his Department of Justice (DOJ) to effectively deal with and prevent the asylum-seekers from being released into the U.S. through Catch and Release by delivering more immigration judges and attorneys to the border.
While Sessions is implementing a legal wall to stop the caravan, Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) could ask the hundreds of National Guard troops who have already been sent to the southern border to construct tent cities that could house asylum-seekers and border-crossers while they await their hearings.
As Breitbart News first reported, while the troops at the border are not authorized to act as fill-in Border Patrol agents, catching and detaining illegal aliens, they can construct barriers on the border.
Former immigration judge Andrew Arthur has previously told Breitbart News that to unilaterally, temporarily end Catch and Release, the Trump administration could set up the tent cities along the southern border, similar to what President Clinton did in the 1990s.
Detaining the asylum-seekers and border-crossers in tent cities, coupled with Sessions’ deployment of more immigration judges and attorneys to the border, would speed up the court process and swiftly lead to foreign nationals either being allowed to stay in the U.S. or being deported.
Most significantly, the construction of tent cities would, at least temporarily, end Catch and Release.

The City of Los Angeles wants to pay property owners to renovate garages and build backyard houses to rent out to the homeless.
The proposal, described by the Los Angeles Times, is mayor Eric Garcetti’s latest effort to tackle the growing problem of homelessness as he attempts to build a national profile as a potential presidential candidate in 2020.
The New York Times has reported that California leads the nation with about 118,000 people experiencing homelessness on an average night — a quarter of the nation’s homeless population. Many of the homeless in the state are in L.A. County.
The situation is so desperate that the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors in August 2017 unanimously approved a $550,000 “Second Dwelling Unit Pilot Program” to pay qualifying homeowners in unincorporated areas up to $75,000 to build a second “granny” unit in areas zoned for such structures.
The pilot program will also provide grants of up to $50,000 to try to legalize some of the huge number of existing accessory dwelling units (ADUs) that were never approved by the county or city planning departments.
The City of Los Angeles had planned to build apartments for the homeless in Temple City and Boyle Heights. Butpontaneous “NIMBY” (Not In My Back Yard) protests broke out last month from local residents angry about homeless dumping in their communities.
Breitbart News reported that similar angry protests broke out at the Orange County Board of Supervisors meeting on March 23 when the county tried to move 700 homeless people evicted from the banks of the Santa Ana River to tent camps near city parks near the bedroom communities in Irvine, Huntington Beach, and Laguna Niguel.
The move would have complied with a settlement in a federal civil rights lawsuit and saved Orange County about $780,000 per month in hotel costs. But 2,500 mostly local homeowners from the affected cities shut down the plan by showing up at the weekly board meeting waving hundreds of signs and chanting, “No tent city!” and “Protect our community, protect our children.”
Based on the Second Dwelling Unit Pilot Program’s supposed success, and a $100,000 Mayor’s Challenge feasibility planning grant from Bloomberg Philanthropies, the UK Daily Mail has reported that the City of Los Angeles intends to use a big piece of the $1.2 billion Proposition HHH bond approved by voters in 2016 to house the homeless permanently.
The grannie flats and garages will be required to include kitchenettes, toilets, and shower amenities. The prospective tenants will be screened by social workers, and will work with counselors to obtain job training and ree-nter the work force within 3 years.
FORMER SEN. BARBARA BOXER and NOW SEN. KAMALA HARRIS are a pantheon of staggering self-serving corruption.
They and their families have all gotten filthy rich off of these women’s elected office.
Their endless hispandering for the illegals’ votes has turned California into Mexifornia, a drug, gang and anchor baby welfare third-world dumpster!
A dashcam video of downtown Los Angeles on Christmas day reveals a stunning sight: hundreds of tents and lean-tos on the sidewalks that serve as shelter for the homeless. The scene is reminiscent of a third-world country. RICK MORAN / AMERICANTHINKER com
