Obama Administration orders border patrol sectors across the country to stand down

11/18/11 Cary Rapini Tea Party Patriots Citizen Journalist cary.rapini@tppjournalism.org The order was received by Border Patrol Sectors in September, 2011, soon after the Obama administration announced that it would allow many undocumented people to remain in the U.S. while it focused on deporting those who have committed crimes. The Northern Border, shared with Canada, is the longest in the world, 5,525 miles. The order had not been made public when the Associated Press, on 10/28/11, reported that the US Border Patrol had stopped routinely searching buses, trains and airports for illegal immigrants at transportation hubs along the northern ...

Johnson credits Trump’s rhetoric for decline in illegal immigrants crossing border

Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Thursday that the decreasing number of illegal immigrants crossing the southwestern U.S. border is partly due to President Trump’s rhetoric. The Washington Examiner has the story: While working for former President Barack Obama, Johnson and other officials worked for years to reduce illegal immigration after the 2014 border crisis that saw thousands of unaccompanied children try to enter the country. Illegal immigration fell in 2015 after the Obama administration worked closely with Central American countries in an effort to get their help in reducing the flow of people, but it rose again in ...

President Donald Trump signs executive orders that protect our borders

President Donald J. Trump is making quick work of his campaign promises, including on the topic of immigration having reversed a number of former President Barack Obama’s executive orders on the subject. The Washington Times has the story: “From here on out, I’m asking all of you to enforce the laws of the United States of America — they will be enforced, and enforced strongly,” Mr. Trump said Wednesday during a visit to the Homeland Security Department’s headquarters. “We do not need new laws. We will work within the existing system and framework.” He called for adding 5,000 more U.S. Border Patrol agents and 10,000 more U.S. ...

California border-patrol agent: ‘We don’t know who we’re releasing’

A surge of Central American illegal-immigrant children and families, as well as nearly 500,000 visa overstays, is making some border-patrol agents question public safety. Why are they concerned? Because there is so great a backlog of illegal immigrants that it’s making it difficult for officials to conduct timely background checks on everyone that comes through the system. Fox News has the story: "We don't know who we're releasing and we don't know what they're capable of," said Shawn Moran, a Border Patrol agent in California and a member of the union. Fellow agent and union representative Art Del Cueto echoed, "You can't find out if they've ...

Officials at the Department of Homeland Security say the number of illegal-immigrant minors who’ve been apprehended at the Texas border increased by more than 100 percent from Oct.-Nov. 2014 to the same time months in 2015. Breitbart has the details: Earlier this month, the Rio Grand Valley Border Patrol sector reported a 101 percent increase of unaccompanied alien children (UAC) and a 154 percent increase of family units crossing the border illegally. These figures reflect apprehension numbers in October and November 2015 and compare them to the same time period last year, KRGV 5 reported … Because of the latest influx, Gov. Greg Abbott ...

McCaul Border Bill (Jenny Beth Martin Op-Ed in The Hill)

During the 2014 midterm elections, Republicans across the country campaigned hard on opposing executive amnesty by President Obama, and securing the country’s borders.  The president famously intoned that “every single one” of his policies was on the ballot; the voters took heed and rewarded Republicans with historic majorities. The GOP now has a chance to make good on its pledges...Continue here.

Sheriffs Unite to Send a Message about Border Security to Congress

Far removed from the current border crisis and the grave effects it’s having across the nation, the White House continues to sugarcoat its pitch for executive amnesty, claiming it will be “good for the country” and “good for the economy.” Yet, those who deal with the issue day to day know that any type of deferred deportation action will only escalate the flood of immigrants coming into our country illegally. For law officials like Sheriff Thomas M. Hodgson of Bristol County, Massachusetts, who have a keen understanding of the situation, it’s easy to shift through the spin and see what really needs to be fixed – our porous border. ...
