U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector reported apprehending nearly 7,000 migrants in a single week who illegally crossed the border from Mexico into Texas.
The Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector is ground zero for the influx of migrants illegally crossing the border between ports of entry. The sector accounts for the largest percentage of all migrant apprehensions for all of the migrants apprehended in the nine southwest Border Patrol sectors, according to information provided by Border Patrol officials.
On Wednesday alone, RGV Sector agents apprehended more than 1,300 migrants — marking the second time in as many weeks this milestone has been achieved, officials stated.
Reports indicate that a majority of the migrants apprehended in the RGV sector are family units and unaccompanied minors from Central and South America. The massive number of apprehensions and the associated time required for Border Patrol agents to process and medically clear each of these migrants greatly impacts the sector’s resources normally utilized for carrying out the border security mission of the region.
During the first four months of Fiscal Year 2017, RGV agents apprehended 77,549 migrants who illegally crossed the border between ports of entry, according to the January Southwest Border Migration Report. This represents an average of 630 migrants apprehended per day. It also accounts for nearly 40 percent of all migrants apprehended in the nine southwest border sectors since October 1, 2018.
So far this fiscal year, RGV agents apprehended 43,588 Family Unit Aliens (FMUA) and 8,685 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC). This represents an increase of 180 percent and 34 percent respectively over the same period in FY2018.
Nationally, Border Patrol agents apprehended 99,901 FMUAs and 20,123 UAC in the nine southwest Border Patrol sectors, officials reported. The families mostly originated from Guatemala (50,593) — followed by Honduras (36,009), El Salvador (9,146), and Mexico (883). Minors also mostly came from Guatemala (9,522) — followed by Honduras (4,833), Mexico (3,007), and El Salvador (2,292).
“At the current rate, the Rio Grande Valley Sector is on pace to reach 240,000 apprehensions for this fiscal year,” officials said in a written statement.

Group of 90 Migrants Cross Border into Texas

Agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Border Patrol Station encountered a large group of migrant families and unaccompanied minors after they illegally crossed the border from Mexico.

Del Rio Sector agents patrolling near the small border community of Quemado, Texas, on Monday encountered a group of 90 migrants who had just crossed the Rio Grande River from Mexico. Border Patrol officials reported that the migrants were all Honduran nationals. Many of the group were women and children. Officials said the children ranged from one to 17 years of age.
The group surrendered to the agents without incident, officials reported. The agents arranged for a transport bus and took the migrants to the Eagle Pass Station for processing and a biometric background investigation.
“Although groups of this size, until recently, have been uncommon in the Del Rio area, our agents are encountering larger groups of immigrants with women and young children,” Del Rio Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak said in a written statement. “Our highest priority will always be the safety of all people involved, no matter the situation. However, it is a criminal offense to enter the United States at a place other than a designated port of entry. Those who choose to enter illegally will be arrested and handled accordingly.”
Officials said that one of the women reported abdominal pain. She told the agents she was pregnant. The agents rushed her to the Duncan Regional Medical Center where she went into labor and gave birth.
Eagle Pass is the scene where 1,700 mostly Honduran caravan migrants gathered across the river in Piedras Negras to await an opportunity to request asylum in the U.S. Earlier this month, Breitbart News reported that a group of the migrants attempted to rush the border and illegally cross into Texas.
Mexican officials began shutting down some of the shelters for the caravan migrants last week. Officials said many of the migrants moved to west Sonora and Chihuahua where they hoped to cross in the El Paso area. About 300 migrants remain in the Piedras Negras area, officials stated.

Murders On Texas Soil Linked to Mexico’s Gulf Cartel, Says FBI

Gulf Cartel Gunman
Breitbart Border / Cartel Chronicles

McALLEN, Texas – Federal authorities are offering a reward for a man tied to Mexico’s Gulf Cartel for his alleged roles in various murders, kidnappings, and home invasions in South Texas. The fugitive, believed to be in Mexico, is also wanted on various trafficking charges for reportedly moving drugs from the Texas border to Fort Wayne, Indiana.
This week, the FBI announced a $25,000 reward for information leading to the capture of 47-year-old Juan Alberto “A-1” Mendez, a man described as an associate of the Gulf Cartel. He is involved in a large-scale racketeering indictment. Mendez is considered a high-risk fugitive still working with the criminal organization.
“We have reason to believe that Mr. Mendez is could be in Playa Del Carmen, Cancun, Monterrey, or Reynosa,” FBI Special Agent in Charge Chris Combs told Breitbart News, adding that the reward is also available to individuals in Mexico. “Someone out there knows where he is, we hope that this gives them 25,000 reasons to call the FBI.”
Mendez, a native of Mission, Texas, and an alleged member of the Gulf Cartel appeared on the FBI’s radar in 2015 as part of a racketeering investigation into the Tri-City Bomber gang (TCB), Combs said during the interview. At the time, Mendez owned a trucking business and investigators believe he used it to move large quantities of marijuana, cocaine, and heroin to Indiana and other areas.
“He may be involved in the trucking business in Mexico or he may also own a nightclub,” Combs said.
The criminal indictment alleges that Mendez personally ordered the murder of a man in the Rio Grande Valley on September 24, 2013. The indictment also alleges that Mendez ordered the kidnapping and subsequent murder of another man on April 25, 2014, also in South Texas.
The indictment linked various members of the TCB to numerous home invasions where gunmen searched for drugs and cash, at times assaulting or killing those inside. While not mentioned in the indictment, there have been various cases where gunmen raided the wrong house and injured innocent victims.

MEXIFORNIA: The Globalist Democrat Party’s Vision of America

Migrant enclaves already are at the top of the U.S. lists for bad places to live - 10 of the 50 worst places in America to live according to this list are in California, and all of them are famous for their illegal populations. MONICA SHOWALTER


California—not Mississippi, New Mexico, or West Virginia—has the highest poverty rate in the United States. According to the Census Bureau’s Supplemental Poverty Measure—which accounts for the cost of housing, food, utilities, and clothing, and which includes noncash government assistance as a form of income—nearly one out of four Californians is poor. Kerry Jackson
California’s de facto status as a one-party state lies at the heart of its poverty problem. With a permanent majority in the state senate and the assembly, a prolonged dominance in the executive branch, and a weak opposition, California Democrats have long been free to indulge blue-state ideology while paying little or no political price. The state’s poverty problem is unlikely to improve while policymakers remain unwilling to unleash the engines of economic prosperity that drove California to its golden years. Kerry Jackson
As Breitbart News reported, if chain migration is not ended — as President Donald Trump has demanded — the U.S. electorate will forever be changed, with between seven to eight million new foreign-born individuals being eligible to vote because of chain migration, and overall, an additional 15 million new foreign-born voters.
Missouri Senator Claire McCaskillhas identified California Senator Kamala Harris as the party leader on issues of immigration and race. Harris wants a moratorium on construction of new immigration-detention facilities in favor of the old “catch and release” policy for illegal aliens, and has urged a shutdown of the government rather than compromise on mass amnesty.
No Justice for Taxpaying Americans 
By Howie Carr 
But the real double standard kicks in when the undocumented Democrat gets to the courtroom. A taxpaying American can only dream of the kid-gloves treatment these Third World fiends get. 

Illegal aliens continue overwhelming the state, draining California’s already depleted public services while endangering our lives, the rule of law, and public safety for all citizens. Arthur Schaper

The costs of illegal immigration are being carefully hidden by Democrats. MONICA SHOWALTER
The Federation for American Immigration Reform estimates that California spends $22 billion on government services for illegal aliens, including welfare, education, Medicaid, and criminal justice system costs.  STEVEN BALDWIN
Heather Mac Donald of the Manhattan Institute has testified before a Congressional committee that in 2004, 95% of all outstanding warrants for murder in Los Angeles were for illegal aliens; in 2000, 23% of all Los Angeles County jail inmates were illegal aliens and that in 1995, 60% of Los Angeles’s largest street gang, the 18th Street gang, were illegal aliens.

Beto’s solution to the wall issue: let the rest of Mexico jump our open borders and vote democrat for more and no wall will be needed!

Steve Scalise: ‘Real 

Murderers’ Are Crossing Our 

‘Completely Porous’ Border

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) warned of “real murderers” entering America across its “extremely porous” southern border in a Monday interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow.

Scalise said, “President Trump made a signature piece of his campaign to finally secure the border. He’s not only campaigned on it, but the American people get what’s going on. There’s a real crisis. I see it all the time. People are dying. It’s not just the drugs and the human trafficking. There are real murderers that come across the border.”
Scalise noted, “Last week, in Lake Charles, Louisiana, there was a guy picked up. He had already been here illegally convicted of sex crimes against children [and] served his time. We deported him in 2016. He somehow came across the border — who knows when and what he’s done since then? — but they literally just picked him up again, last week. The border’s completely porous. We’ve got to secure it.”
Scalise recalled recent negotiations on Capitol Hill regarding appropriations for border security funding.
“We were able to get some money,” explained Scalise. “Clearly not the full amount that the House passed when the Republicans were in charge — $5.7 billion — but we got $1.3 billion for the president to build new wall. There were some things that were important to finally open up some areas of the Rio Grande where — think about this, how ridiculous this is — the federal law said you can’t build wall where our border agents said we needed it the most. Those limitations finally got removed, but at the end of the day, now the president says he has issued an emergency declaration.”
Scalise continued, “Nancy Pelosi, this week, is going to bring legislation to try to block the president from being able to issue the emergency declaration. Nancy Pelosi went to the border this weekend and said there’s no crisis. How do you tell all those families who —  every single week in America — we see people dying from people that are here illegally? And we see the crisis at the border.”
“We have a legal system of immigration,” added Scalise. “We need to get back to the rule of law, and respect the fact that you can come here legally. There’s a right way to do it. But if you just pour across the border whether it’s to bring drugs or to do harm to people, we’ve got to finally secure the border. I applaud President Trump for following through on his commitment to secure the border.”
Marlow remarked, “There’s no real constituency who wants an open border aside from the super-elite who fund some elements of the Republican Party and much of the Democratic Party, and that’s really all there is. The public doesn’t want an open border, and it seems like this is a huge opportunity for the right to really seize the mantle of law and order and to protect the American worker and the American citizen.”
Scalise responded, “You’re exactly right. When you talk to people, whatever they feel on different parts of immigration, whether it’s DACA [or] the interior loopholes that we need to close, right now the secretary of homeland security, if somebody comes to America illegally and commits a major crime, after they serve the time, depending on where they’re from, the secretary of homeland security has to get permission from the country they’re from to send them back. How ridiculous is that?”
Scalise went on, “These are the problems we have, but regardless of where you feel on all the other issues, just having border security is very popular even amongst Democrats, even amongst those who came to the country legally, because they followed the rules to come here. Some people wait over ten years to become a legal American citizen. What does it say to them, when you can literally have a felon who was deported in 2016 for abusing children somehow makes his way back into America? And it happens all the time.”
Marlow stated “This is a big myth that a bunch of legal immigrants want more illegal immigrants. It’s just not true.”
