In Bernie Sanders' State of Vermont, "that giant sucking sound" is not jobs moving to Mexico — it is jobs being concocted in Montpelier. Of course, Governor Scott shields illegal immigrants working in Vermont, and Vermont provides driver's licenses to them. The capital city also grants non-citizen residents the right to vote. It is no surprise that Vermont is #1 in the country for illegal northern border crossings.

MEXICO SURRENDERS TO THE LA RAZA HEROIN CARTELS - SURGE IN CARGO ROBBERIES AS CRIME HITS LEVELS NEVER SEEN BEFORE IN THIS HIGHLY VIOLENT COUNTRY
Surge in Cargo Robberies in Mexico as Crime Hits ‘Levels Never Seen Before’

Mexico City (CNSNews.com) – Law enforcement agencies in Mexico are severely under resourced to effectively combat a significant surge in highway robbery and train heists in Mexico, according to local and international experts.
This comes amid reports of a 65 percent surge in the number of robberies of cargo trucks in the first quarter of 2018, compared to the same period last year.
“We are in a collapsed state in terms of the state’s ability to investigate the number of crimes,” said Francisco Rivas, director of the citizens’ crime watch group National Citizen Observatory.
The government has not dedicated the funding or resources needed to adequately investigate and prosecute the crimes, he said.
The authorities are also “not doing anything” to trace the goods stolen in heists on Mexico’s highways and railroads, and have failed to shut down the illicit markets where the stolen goods are sold, Rivas said.
A leading business group on Monday called for action to be taken before a new president is sworn in on Dec. 1, following elections scheduled for July 1.
“The urgency of the situation is evident. There is a prevailing need for the authorities not to postpone the reforms that the country needs to live in peace,” COPARMEX said in a posting to its website Monday.
“Violence and crime have reached levels never seen before.”
According to data collected by the supply chain consultancy Sensitech, robberies of tractor trailers moving cargo on Mexico’s highways surged by 65 percent – to 3,346 – in the first quarter of this year compared to the same period in 2017.
The number of robberies has more than doubled compared to the first quarter of 2016, it found.
Most truck robberies happen at night, with the majority occurring along the highway leading from the shipping port of Veracruz on the gulf coast to the country’s center.
“Cargo theft in Mexico shows no sign of abating and in the current criminal environment we can anticipate that it will continue to rise,” the risk consultancy Stratfor said in a compilation of recent highway robbery data for Mexico.
The country has also seen a dramatic rise in train heists, Stratfor analyst Scott Stewart told CNSNews.com. There were 720 cargo heists from trains in the first three months of this year compared to 125 in the same period in 2017.
“That is a very dramatic increase and we have seen some pretty spectacular attacks.”
On May 19, for instance, vandals disconnected hydraulic lines on a train moving cargo in Veracruz, causing the train to lose braking capacity and crash when it reached the city of Orizaba.
On May 8, thieves removed tracks, causing a train to derail in in Acultzingo Veracruz, but were stopped by police from carrying out a robbery of the cargo.
Stewart said businesses are fighting back by using counter surveillance to identify when potential thieves are following trucks on highways. They are also hiding GPS devices in cargo merchandise so it can be tracked after robberies.
Thieves, however, have deployed sophisticated GPS sensors so they can detect and remove the GPS devices.
Most truck robberies (73 percent) are performed by armed criminals, and some drivers have been beaten or killed, Stewart said.
Law enforcement “has so many things demanding their attention right now it is difficult for them to dedicate the resources needed to combat the problem.”
Mexico’s military, deployed by former President Enrique Calderon to fight criminal drug gangs, is no longer providing protection on the country’s highways, according to Mexico City security expert Raúl Benitez.
Federal prosecutorial staff and resources have not grown sufficiently to address the problem of declining security in the country, and state governors are not “assuming their responsibilities” in the fight against crime, he added.
Robberies of trains and gasoline in the state of Guanajuato north of Mexico City have increased significantly and local government lacks necessary police resources and has failed to invest sufficiently in them.
“It’s a big security crisis that’s affecting the population and businesses,” Benitez said in an emailed response to queries.
Rivas said that whoever wins Mexico’s presidential election must make decisions about how to increase Mexico’s crime fighting abilities.
The question is whether a new government will dedicate the necessary resources.
“Time has run out for this government,” COPARMEX said in its posting. “We can’t continue to wait. This is the last call.”
Arizona Border Ranchers Live in Fear as Illegal Immigration Crisis Worsens
More than half a million illegal immigrants of several dozen nationalities have been apprehended on John Ladd’s sprawling cattle ranch in southeastern Arizona. Ladd has also found 14 dead bodies on his 16,500-acre farm, which has been in his family for well over a century and sits between the Mexican border and historic State Route 92.

Trump hurts himself with falsehoods on Mexico, border wall, taxes
A year and a half into his presidency, President Trump has a number of accomplishments he can honestly refer to. He appointed Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, among other accomplished jurists to federal circuit courts. He has tried to stop the DACA program and increase the apprehension of illegal aliens. He is in the process of rolling back a number of ridiculous environmental regulations, and he has enacted a great corporate tax cut that is bringing cash abroad back to the U.S.
That's why it's distressing to see the president, in a recent speech, tout accomplishments that are falsehoods:
1. Mexico paying for the wall. Trump once again said Mexico will pay for his border wall. A year and a half into his administration, Trump has not even laid out a plan to get Mexico to pay for the border wall, because there is no plan. By lying to his supporters, Trump disrespects them.
2. Claiming to have passed the largest tax cuts in U.S. history (here at the 13:45 mark). Trump did not sign the largest tax cuts in U.S. history. Trump signed a bill authorizing large corporate tax cuts, but his tax cut for individuals was quite small for many, and for some, the marginal rates even increased. For example, for people making $170,000 a year, the top tax rate was 28% under the old plan; under the plan Trump signed, the top tax rate for that same family making $170,000 is 32%. That's an incremental increase of 4% in the top tax rate, not the largest tax cut ever. Most taxpayers will see little or no decrease in their taxes.
3. Saying that construction of his border wall has already begun. That is not true. Trump is engaging in replacing some border fencing. No wall is being built, and no new barriers are being built in places that didn't have barriers to begin with.
Trump hurts himself with these untrue statements by giving the media legitimate ammunition to attack him, and he makes it harder for people to support him when he demonstrates a more equivocal moral character. When his supporters defend his lies, they also intellectually discredit themselves. It's a shame he can't stick to his real accomplishments. For the moment, he's generally a good leader but a flawed one.
“I believe that if Hillary had been elected she would have found a way to give amnesty and eventually citizenship to all the millions of Hispanics who are now here illegally and would have, in theory, have opened the border so that more and more could cross and be eligible to vote, until an undefeatable voting block would have been created, putting a more and more progressive electorate into power.” CHARLIE DANIELS

388 SHERIFFS FROM 40 STATES SAY BUILD THE FREAKING WALL!!!
Mexico says we will simply tunnel under it and our LA RAZA DEMOCRAT PARTY will buy the shovels for us to do it!
Bristol County, Massachusetts, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson state in an open letter, issued on March 21, makes clear that the responsibility for the continued carnage of innocent Americans caused by those who shouldn’t be present in the country in the first place lies firmly in the lap of Congress. “Because Congress has failed to enact the necessary reforms, our citizens and legal residents face even greater dangers, our national security is more vulnerable, and our enforcement efforts have been seriously compromised”
Adios, Sanctuary La Raza Welfare State of California
A fifth-generation Californian laments his state’s ongoing economic collapse.

American Spectator, October 19, 2017
What’s clear is that the producers are leaving the state and the takers are coming in. Many of the takers are illegal aliens, now estimated to number over 2.6 million. 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.

San Diego County Released 349 Illegals Wanted by ICE Since ‘Sanctuary State’ Law Began
The San Diego County Sheriff’s Department has released over half the people U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requested since California’s “sanctuary state” law took effect in January.
ICE requested that the San Diego Sheriff’s Department hold 605 incarcerated individuals in the first four-and-a-half months of 2018, a department spokeswoman told the San Diego Union-Tribune. The department released 349 of those individuals without contacting ICE.
For the two years prior to the sanctuary state law going into effect, ICE had picked up 87 percent of the individuals they had requested be held, according to the report.
Under the new law, known as SB 54 or the “California Values Act,” law enforcement officials in California are barred from cooperating with federal immigration officials. That means prison officials are prohibited from telling ICE when prisoners will be released unless they fall into categories specified under SB 54.
ICE arrests in California are down 25 percent in 2018 from the fourth quarter of 2017. The Tribune cited ICE data that showed a decrease from 4,642 to 6,214, compared to a two percent increase in arrests across the nation as a whole.
Among the 349 released individuals were those facing charges for violent crimes, including misdemeanor spousal battery, the Sheriff’s Department told the Tribune. Misdemeanor domestic violence, DUI, disorderly conduct, and public intoxication were reportedly the most common offenses among detainees.
Many California cities and counties are joining a U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) lawsuit opposing three of the state’s sanctuary laws, including SB 54.
Not long after U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the lawsuit in early March, for example, the city council members of Orange County city Los Alamitos voted to reject sanctuary laws and join the DOJ lawsuit. The move started a domino effect of cities and counties, largely in Southern California, voting to join the lawsuit as well.
Last week, the city council of northern San Diego County city Carlsbad became the most recent to join others in rejecting California’s sanctuary state laws.

California libs enraged at police for cooperating with ICE
California passed a law that was supposed to prevent the police from notifying ICE about illegal aliens in its custody. The idea is that illegals arrested for crimes could be released without ICE learning about them, like ships passing in the night.
The problem is that sheriffs, by their nature, aren't happy with the idea of illegal aliens, especially illegal aliens who have been convicted of additional crimes, roaming around California on their own. So some sheriffs in the most liberal places are exploiting a loophole in California's law to let ICE know about the illegal aliens they have in custody.
Marin County Sheriff Robert Doyle is complying with requests from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for the release dates of inmates suspected to be undocumented immigrants [sic].
SB 54 prohibits local law enforcement agencies from supplying inmate release dates to ICE generally. The law, however, provides two exceptions. First, if the inmate was convicted of a serious crime or one of several high crime misdemeanors, and second, if the release date is "available to the public."
Soon after SB 54 became law, the Marin County Sheriff's Office began posting the release dates of all inmates on its website. The Chronicle story notes that Orange, Contra Costa and Alameda counties also began posting the information this year.
Marin, Contra Costa, and Alameda counties are some of the most liberal counties in California. Marin, just north of San Francisco, is heavily Democratic; Contra Costa County encompasses Richmond, which is so dangerous that it makes San Francisco look safe and law-abiding by comparison; and Alameda encompasses Oakland and Berkeley, which would secede to form a dictatorship of the proletariat if they could.
In February, Canal Alliance, a nonprofit serving San Rafael's predominately Latino neighborhood, issued a report on the Marin County Sheriff's Office's cooperation with ICE after obtaining documents under the California Public Records Act. The report stated that "the primary way that people find themselves in deportation proceedings is through contact with the local criminal system."
So the Canal Alliance complains that people are deported after having "contact" with the "criminal system." Essentially, the organization is saying that even repeat criminal illegal aliens should not be deported.
Omar Carrera, Canal Alliance's executive director, said in Marin driving under the influence, domestic violence, and driving without a license are three examples of offenses that people whose release dates have been shared with ICE have committed.
"We're not talking about people who have committed terrible crimes," Carrera said.
Beating your spouse and drunk driving are not terrible crimes?
On Tuesday, Doyle said ICE took 65 to 67 former Marin County inmates into custody in 2017. According to last week's Chronicle story, from the first of the year to May 1, ICE has requested 61 release notifications from the Sheriff's Office and all but six have been granted, or about 90 percent. The story said the compliance percentages during roughly the same period were 29 percent for Alameda County and 42 percent for conservative San Diego County.
It's amazing that sheriffs, who are elected, are doing the right thing, even under pressure from the state and the local illegal alien lobby to do otherwise.
