HOUSTON, Texas — Federal officers arrested 45 illegal immigrants in the Houston area during a five-day operation. Forty-two had previous criminal convictions and 15 were previously deported.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers carried out a five-day operation in the Houston area that targeted “at-large criminal aliens” and those with previous deportations. During the operation, ERO officers arrested 45 illegal immigrants, according to ICE.
“Our primary focus with conducting targeted immigration enforcement operations is to improve public safety by removing criminal aliens from our local communities,” ERO Houston Field Office Director Pat Contreras said in a written statement. “The dedicated immigration enforcement officers who conducted the operation did just that by taking 42 dangerous criminal aliens off the streets.”
ICE stated that 15 of those arrested were previously been deported. Forty-two had criminal histories which included convictions for “serious or violent crimes.” Those convictions include rape, child exploitation, robbery, drug trafficking, and assault.
Officials provided examples of those arrested:
  • In Houston, a 29-year-old Turkish national convicted of child exploitation;
  • In Houston, a previously removed 43-year-old Honduran convicted of rape;
  • In Houston, a 44-year-old Cuban convicted of burglary; and
  • In Tomball, a twice-removed 46-year-old Mexican national convicted of burglary and drug trafficking.
Officers made the arrests in the following cities in the Houston Metropolitan Area: Houston (26), Conroe (9), Cleveland (2), Alvin (1), Tomball (1), the Woodlands (1), Texas City (1), Channelview (1), Clearlake (1), Baytown (1), and Bellville (1). The illegal immigrants came to the U.S. from: Honduras, El Salvador, Mexico, Guatemala, Argentina, Cuba, Nigeria, India, Chile, and Turkey.
Some of those arrested could now face new federal felony charges for illegal re-entry after removal as a convicted felon. They could face up to 20 years in prison. Those without previous removals could also face criminal prosecution for immigration violations and will be processed for removal.
“To make our communities safer, ICE deportation officers carry out targeted enforcement operations every day in locations around the country as part of the agency’s ongoing efforts to uphold public safety and protect the integrity of our nation’s immigration laws,” ICE officials concluded.

Border Patrol agents assigned to the Falfurrias Checkpoint found 27 migrants locked in the back of two commercial rental trucks in separate incidents this week. The smuggled include at least one unaccompanied minor.

Rio Grande Valley Sector agents assigned to the Falfurrias Border Patrol checkpoint on Sunday observed a rental box truck approaching for an immigration inspection. During the initial interview, a K-9 agent alerted to the possible presence of drug or human cargo present. The agents ordered the driver to the secondary inspection station, according to Rio Grande Valley Sector officials.
During a secondary inspection, agents opened the rear door of the truck and found 18 illegal immigrants locked inside the hot truck with no ventilation or means of escape if an accident were to occur. The agents identified the migrants as having come from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Nicaragua.
The agents transported the 18 illegal immigrants to the Falfurrias Station for initial intake processing and a biometric background investigation. During the records check, agents identified one of the migrants as a 17-year-old unaccompanied minor.
A similar incident occurred the following day when agents again observed a rental box truck approaching the immigration checkpoint. A K-9 agent again alerted to the possible presence of drugs or humans in the rental truck’s cargo area. The agents referred the driver to a secondary inspection station for further investigation.
The agents carried out a search and found nine more migrants locked in the rear. An investigation revealed the human cargo came to the U.S. from Honduras and Mexico, officials stated.
Agents arrested the migrants and turned both cases over to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations for possible prosecution for immigration violations and human smuggling.

MONTERREY, Nuevo León — Mexican authorities found 161 migrants from Central America locked inside a tractor-trailer in the southern part of this border state. 

The detention took place over the weekend in the Ascension neighborhood of Aramberri. Agents with the Nuevo León Fuerza Civil police unit stopped a tractor-trailer and found 161 individuals–including 6 unaccompanied minors–inside. The police officers arrested two men from the state of Tabasco who were driving the truck and leading the smuggling attempt.
The officers requested local backup to help guard the migrants until they could be taken by Mexican immigration authorities. There were 39 families from Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, as well as six Central American children traveling alone.
Law enforcement information provided to Breitbart Texas revealed the group paid approximately $2,500 USD per person to start the trip in the truck and would be paying anothee $2,500 to $4,000 at the border in order to cross the Rio Grande. The failed smuggling operation appears to follow a growing trend where criminal organizations are circumventing the states of Tamaulipas and Veracruz, two regions seeing a dramatic spike in violence as rival cartels fight for local control.
Editor’s Note: Breitbart Texas traveled to the Mexican States of Tamaulipas, Coahuila, and Nuevo León to recruit citizen journalists willing to risk their lives and expose the cartels silencing their communities.  The writers would face certain death at the hands of the various cartels that operate in those areas including the Gulf Cartel and Los Zetas if a pseudonym were not used. Breitbart Texas’ Cartel Chronicles are published in both English and in their original Spanish.

South Texas Border Patrol Agents Arrest 110 Migrants in 2 Days

MCALLEN, TX - SEPTEMBER 08: Families of Central American immigrants turn themselves in to U.S. Border Patrol agents after crossing the Rio Grande River from Mexico on September 8, 2014 to McAllen, Texas. Although the numbers of such immigrant families and unaccompanied minors have decreased from a springtime high, thousands …

Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol agents arrested 110 migrants in less than two days. The apprehensions occurred along the border and in stash houses. The Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector continues to lead the nation with nearly half of all arrests of illegal immigrants alone.

RGV Sector agents assigned to the McAllen Station received a tip on Sunday morning about a group of people hiding in an abandoned house near Abram, Texas. The agents responded, along with local law enforcement officers, and found 16 illegal immigrants hiding in the house, according to RGV Sector officials.
Interviews and background investigations revealed the migrants were smuggled to the U.S. from El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Mexico.
Later that day, the Mission Police Department requested assistance from McAllen Station agents. The local police received information about a stash house operation in their city located near the Texas-Mexico border. The agents responded and found eight more inside the house.

A short time later, Weslaco Station agents patrolling near the border town of Hidalgo came upon a group of 42 illegal immigrants who were just smuggled across the Rio Grande River. Officials said the group contained Family Unit Aliens and Unaccompanied Alien Children. The migrants came to the U.S. from Guatemala and Honduras.
In nearly the same place the following day, Weslaco Station agents came upon another group of illegal immigrants who recently crossed the border. The group of 44 migrants included additional Family Unit Aliens and Unaccompanied Alien Children. The migrants all came to the U.S. from Guatemala.

In total, the RGV Sector agents apprehended 110 illegal immigrants in less than two days, officials reported. This sector accounted for nearly half of all apprehensions along the entire southwest border in July.
The Rio Grande Valley Sector in South Texas continues to lead the nation in the apprehension of FMUAs who illegally cross the border from Mexico. So far this fiscal year, agents arrested 47,409 units. This is up from 44,445 the previous fiscal year — a seven percent increase, Breitbart Texas reported.
The sector also leads the nation in the apprehension of unaccompanied minors. However, the sector saw an eight percent drop in July.
The Yuma, Tucson, and El Centro Sectors all witnessed significant increases in the numbers of unaccompanied minors crossing the border in dangerous conditions. The apprehension of UACs in the Yuma Sector rose by 114 percent from 2,229 in June to 4,762 in July. The El Centro Sector also saw a near 100 percent increase rising from 1,116 in June to 2,186 in July. The Tucson Sector observed an increase from 2,994 to 4,323 (59 percent). The Texas sectors of Laredo and Big Bend also saw increases of more that 40 percent, the report states.
Of the 31,303 illegal immigrants apprehended along the U.S.-Mexico Border in July, 13,241 were arrested in the Rio Grande Valley Sector. Those arrests included 5,219 family units and 1,931 unaccompanied minors. The total apprehensions in this sector are four times that of the next largest sector, according to the July Southwest Border Migration Report from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

AMERICA’S OPEN BORDERS TO TERRORIST… as we defend the borders of every Muslim dictator on earth!


What is MS-13?



How Trump's wall will help keep heinous criminals out of America's cities.

Readers familiar with my writing know of my fondness for analogies to break down the, sometimes complex and always frustrating issues on U.S. immigration.  Today, I will use an analogy comparing the proposed border wall along the U.S./Mexican border to insulate America with the way that various forms of insulation are used in constructing buildings to save money and provide other benefits.
Properly constructed homes and buildings are weatherproofed and insulated to create barriers that keep out rain and to keep their interiors warm and cozy in the winter and cool in the summer.
Various strategies and materials are used to achieve these essential goals. Insulation is installed inside outer walls and in the spaces under the roofs of the houses while double-pane windows, storm doors, and weatherstripping are used to seal up other vulnerable areas.
These measures are costly to install, but over the life of the building, these measures more than pay for themselves.  Depending on location, home heating and cooling costs can be significantly reduced when effective insulation prevents costly warm air from escaping from the house during the frigid days of winter, and by preventing hot air from leaking into our homes during the sweltering days of summer when the air conditioners are humming and devouring expensive electricity.
Simply stated -  effective insulation improves the environment in our homes and simultaneously saves homeowners considerable amounts of money.
Those homes are not hermetically sealed. However, their doors and windows can still open, just as America’s ports of entry permit easy access to lawful foreign visitors and commerce.
America’s sovereign borders are essential to protect Americans from a different sort of intrusion - the intrusion of international terrorists and transnational criminals and fugitives.  Our borders are also crucial in preventing the entry of foreign workers who would take jobs Americans need to support themselves and their families.
Finally, our borders are supposed to prevent contraband from being brought into the country.  That contraband includes unfathomable quantities of illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine, meth, and others.  It includes counterfeit prescription drugs and counterfeit parts for cars, airplanes and other devices that may endanger lives.  The contraband may also include weapons and, indeed, among them weapons of mass destruction.
But our borders can only function as effective barriers if they are more than mere “lines in the sand.”
The preface of the official report, 9/11 and  Terrorist Travel begins with this clear and unequivocal statement:
It is perhaps obvious to state that terrorists cannot plan and carry out attacks in the United States if they are unable to enter the country. Yet prior to September 11, while there were efforts to enhance border security, no agency of the U.S. government thought of border security as a tool in the counterterrorism arsenal. Indeed, even after 19 hijackers demonstrated the relative ease of obtaining a U.S. visa and gaining admission into the United States, border security still is not considered a cornerstone of national security policy. We believe, for reasons we discuss in the following pages, that it must be made one.​
Today I focus on the U.S./Mexican border, but it is essential to understand that our nation has 50 “border states” (any state that lies along our northern, as well as our southern borders, are border states as are those states that lie along America’s 95,000 miles of coastline.  Finally, any state that has an international airport is also a “border state”).
While the porous and dangerous U.S./Mexican border must be made secure and is my focus today, many other measures must be taken in this particularly dangerous era.  I have come to compare a border wall along that problematic border with a wing on an airplane.  Without its wings and airplane most certainly will not fly, however, a wing by itself won’t fly either!
This was the premise behind an article I wrote some time ago, Border Security and the Immigration Colander.
The lack of security on that approximately 2,000 mile border represents a vast, gaping hole in the immigration colander, yet the leadership of neither party appears to be genuinely determined to finally build a secure wall even though more than ten years ago Congress voted for the construction of a “border fence” that was never constructed.
In point of fact, a significant contingent of anarchist extremists in the Democratic Party has created “Sanctuary Cities” and “Sanctuary States” and have called for dismantling our borders and ending immigration law enforcement altogether throughout the United States.
New York’s Governor Cuomo, in spite of the clear warnings of the 9/11 Commission, has now threatened to prosecute ICE agents for enforcing our nation’s immigration laws even though alien terrorists have repeatedly targeted new York in repeated deadly terror attacks.
President Trump has made it clear that he will take whatever measure(s) he must to finally have that wall constructed and has not ruled out shutting down the government because this issue is just that important.
In a July 31, 2018, Chicago Tribune report, Trump doubles-down on a government shutdown threat to build the wall:  
"I don't care what the political ramifications are, our immigration laws and border security have been a complete and total disaster for decades, and there is no way that the Democrats will allow it to be fixed without a Government Shutdown," Trump said in a tweet Tuesday afternoon.​
"Border Security is National Security, and National Security is the long-term viability of our Country," he added. "A Government Shutdown is a very small price to pay for a safe and Prosperous America!”​
Opponents of that wall have raised various objections to the wall including lamest of excuses, the cost of building it.
Candidate Donald Trump proclaimed that as President he would build the wall and that Mexico would pay for that wall.  It was no surprise when the current and previous Mexican presidents ridiculed President Trump and his assertions about forcing Mexico to pay for our wall.
The globalist media and globalist politicians refuse to acknowledge that Mexico would pay for the entire wall and its maintenance, without having to send a single dollar to the United States.
On July 3, 2018, Mexico News Daily reported on the flow of money from the United States to Mexico in the form of money wire transfers known as remittances as noted in the article’s title:
Remittance numbers took a big jump.
May’s record-high remittances clear US $3-billion mark
The figure is 17% higher than the previous record, set last October​
Remittances, massive as they are, do not account for all of the money that flows from the United States to Mexico and because they are legal and transparent are easy to quantify.
Money is often smuggled covertly out of the U.S. to other countries around the world. by illegal and hence opaque means. Sometimes the money is concealed in furniture, appliances or vehicles.  Sometimes the money is converted to gold or other precious metals to make it more portable. However, no matter how money leaves the United States, a wall would create a barrier against illegal alien workers who send their ill-gotten wages back to Mexico.
That wall could help stem the flow of dangerous narcotics into America - an act that destroys the lives of children and fuels the violence that plays out in towns and cities across the country.  
Indeed, a secure southern border could help to insulate America from terrorists operating in Latin America, an issue of grave concern that I wrote about in my recent article, Congresional Hearing: Iranian Sleeper Cells Threaten U.S.that included the testimony of one of the witnesses, Dr. Emanuele Ottolenghi of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies who said, in part:
In recent years, Hezbollah’s Latin American networks have also increasingly cooperated with violent drug cartels and criminal syndicates, often with the assistance of local corrupt political elites. Cooperation includes laundering of drug money; arranging multi-ton shipments of cocaine to the United States and Europe, and directly distributing and selling illicit substances to distant markets. Proceeds from these activities finance Hezbollah’s arms procurement; its terror activities overseas; its hold on Lebanon’s political system; and its efforts, both in Lebanon and overseas, to keep Shi’a communities loyal to its cause and complicit in its endeavors.
This toxic crime-terror nexus is fueling both global jihadism and the collapse of law and order across Latin America that is helping drive drugs and people northward into America. It is sustaining Hezbollah’s growing financial needs. It helps Iran and Hezbollah consolidate a local constituency in multiple countries across Latin America. It is facilitating their efforts to build safe havens for terrorists and a continent-wide terror infrastructure that they could use to strike U.S. targets.
Trump's proposed wall would be a “win-win,” saving innocent American lives, reducing violent crime and protecting national security while bolstering the U.S. economy. 
Opponents of the wall are true opponents of America and Americans.
We honestly cannot afford to not finally "build the wall."

Exclusive—Lou Barletta: ‘How Would Bob Casey Justify’ Sanctuary Cities to Child Rape Victim?

Congressman Lou Barletta (R-PA) chastised Sen. Bob Casey’s (D-PA) support for sanctuary cities on Monday, contending that a five-year-old rape victim was not provided “sanctuary” from criminal illegal aliens.

Last week, Juan Ramon Vasquez, a 45-year old Honduran national, was sentenced to two years in jail for illegally entering the country. Vasquez raped a five-year-old child after Philadelphia authorities ignored an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainer and released him. Vasquez was deported from the country in 2009 but was later re-entered the United States illegally. Rep. Barletta slammed Sen. Casey for supporting the city of brotherly love’s sanctuary city policy.
Barletta asked rhetorically, “How would Bob Casey justify his support for sanctuary cities to the family of the little girl who was raped? Does Bob Casey believe it was a sanctuary city for them?”
William McSwain, the U.S. Attorney for the Philadelphia region, said in a statement last week, “The facts of this case highlight the danger posed by the City of Philadelphia’s decision to disregard ICE detainers and release previously deported aliens from local custody.”
In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, McSweeney blamed Philadelphia’s sanctuary city status for “fostering mistrust between the community and local law enforcement” by favoring illegal aliens.
Stu Bykofksy, a staff columnist for the Inquirernoted in his article, “Given sanctuary in Philly, he raped a child”:
ICE had requested that he be detained for deportation, but our self-righteous city turned the Honduran loose, and the next time he was in custody it was for raping a 5-year-old girl. I’m sure the victim’s family appreciates Kenney’s policy that protects foreign convicted felons, which is what Vasquez was.
Sen. Casey voted against legislation in 2016 to defund sanctuary cities, including Philadelphia, as well as Kate’s Law, which imposes harsher penalties on illegal immigrants who reenter the United States. Kate’s Law would have hit Vasquez, who reentered the country after previously being deported.
“If someone is deported for a criminal conviction then we need to make sure they are prevented from ever coming back into this country,” Sen. Casey said in a 2016 statement.
Congressman Barletta said last year that “everyone’s family is put at risk” by sanctuary cities.

30th Illegal Alien Sex Offender Arrested by CBP El Centro
The United States Border Patrol in El Centro, CA nabbed their 30th illegal alien who has a history of sex offenses this year after arresting a previously deported man who was convicted of sexually assaulting an American minor in April 2004. 
According to a press release issued August 10th, Border Patrol agents stationed at the Calexico office arrested Jose Humberto Ojeda-Gutierrez, a 30-year-old Mexican national, who had previously been deported. According to court records in April 2004,  Ojeda-Gutierrez was "sentenced to 40 hours of community service and on-year probation" for "Sexual Contact-No Consent" with a juvenile.
“Keeping our communities safe from dangerous criminals such as these is vital to our role as Border Patrol agents,” said Chief Patrol Agent Gloria I. Chavez.
The most recent Border Patrol statistics indicate that CBP agents have arrested at least 72 sex offenders in the 2018 fiscal year.
