Border rancher: ‘We’ve found prayer rugs out here. It’s unreal’

Ranchers and farmers near the U.S.-Mexico border have been finding prayer rugs on their properties in recent months, according to one rancher who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation by cartels. The mats are pieces of carpet that those of the Muslim faith kneel on as they worship. “There’s a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico,” the rancher said. “People, the general public, just don’t get the terrorist threats of that. That’s what’s really scary. You don’t know what’s coming across. We’ve found prayer rugs out here. It’s unreal. It’s not just Mexican nationals that are coming across.” The rancher, who lives with her family in a remote, southwestern part of the state, said the discoveries raise questions about how many people who illegally entered the U.S. in Hidalgo County, N.M., traveled thousands of miles from overseas to sneak across the southern border. She is one of just a few hundred residents of Animas, N.M., a tiny town that sits between the international border and the Border Patrol’s Lordsburg Station, which is 95 miles north of the boundary. The few hundred residents have no local police department. They rely on the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Department and U.S. Border Patrol to help when they need it, but otherwise count on tips and support from one another because of the 40 miles that separate the community from the county headquarters in Lordsburg. The rancher and six other residents of Animus told Washington Examiner this week that migrants from places other than Mexico and Central America are arriving. “I’ve talked to several agents that I trust. There’s not a lot that I do trust, but the ones I do trust, I talk to them,” she said during a tour of her property. “What Border Patrol classifies as OTMs [other than Mexicans] has really increased in the last couple years, but drastically within the last six months. Chinese, Germans, Russians, a lot of Middle Easterners. Those Czechoslovakians they caught over on our neighbor’s just last summer.” Billy Darnell, a cattle rancher in Animus, said his neighbor had 18 women and children from the Philippines show up on his property last year. Border Patrol was called to the scene and took the group in. Government data indicates six known or suspected terrorists were caught trying to enter the U.S. from Mexico from Oct. 1, 2017, through March 31, 2018. However, the Trump administration has stated on several occasions that 3,700 people who were identified as coming from countries with terrorism problems have also been apprehended at that border. “We’ve talked about the thousands — the thousands of terror watch list individuals who traveled through our hemisphere last year,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said on Fox News this month. “To pretend there’s not a danger on an unsecured border, on an open border, is just ridiculous. It belies common sense.”

Agreed…  These are the stories that CNN, MSNBC, and the rest of the dominantly liberal mainstream media don’t want you to hear because it undermines their narrative that the only reason Trump, and many Republicans, want to build the wall…is to keep “brown” people out.  In other words, they’re playing the race card, and it’s shameful.  A country without borders is not a country.  It’s that simple.  And, we’re experiencing an invasion coming across our southern border.  It is WAY past time that we BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!  We’ve been calling for here at The Daily Buzz for years; long before Trump even ran for President.  Write your member of Congress and BOTH U.S. Senators and tell them to get off their ass and support Trump’s wall!

San Diego-Based KUSI: CNN Disinvited Our Journalist Because We Reported Border Wall ‘Does Work’

KUSI News, a television news outlet based in San Diego, California, said Thursday that CNN invited — and subsequently rescinded the invitation — for it to provide a reporter to give “a local view of the debate surrounding the border wall and government shutdown.” The San Diego-based outfit speculated on CNN’s rationale for the decision: “We believe CNN declined a report from KUSI because we informed them that most Border Patrol Agents we have spoken to told us the barrier does in fact work. We have continuously been told by Border Patrol Agents that the barrier along the Southern border helps prevent illegal entries, drugs, and weapons from entering the United States, and the numbers prove it.” KUSI News shared a segment of its programming related to CNN’s editorial move.

CNN.. Typical FAKE NEWS!  They only want to air information which comports to their extreme liberal narrative.  They knowingly/actively censor, or ridicule, any dissenting view that conflicts with their liberal agenda.  We have documented time and again this pattern by CNN, here at The Daily Buzz.  It is total garbage.

Gang Members, Sex Offenders Arrested near Border in Texas and Arizona

Border Patrol agents in Arizona and Texas stopped multiple previously deported sex offenders and members of violent gangs from making their way into the U.S. interior in the past week. Nogales Station agents arrested a Honduran national after he illegally crossed the border near Nogales, Arizona. Agents transported 51-year-old Hector Gustavo Montoya-Irias to the station, where they carried out a biometric background investigation on the man, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The records check revealed an extensive criminal history and membership in the dangerous 18th Street gang. Most recently, a court convicted the man for drug smuggling offenses and sentenced him to 24 months in prison. Immigration officers deported the man to Honduras. His record includes more than 10 previous removals from the U.S., officials stated. His record of deportations dates back to 1993. Agents assigned to the Eagle Pass Station arrested a Honduran national who illegally crossed the border near Eagle Pass, Texas, on December 18. The agents carried out a background investigation on the migrant and learned he is a confirmed member of the violent Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang. Records also show that immigration officers previously removed the migrant. “Border Patrol agents routinely encounter dangerous individuals while on duty securing our borders,” Del Rio Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak said in a written statement. “The men and women of the U.S. Border Patrol are committed to stopping any threat to the safety and security of our nation.” Ajo Station Border Patrol agents came upon an illegal immigrant from Mexico on December 19 after he crossed the border near Lukeville, Arizona. Agents arrested and transported him to the station to undergo a biometric background investigation. The agents identified the migrant as a 46-year-old Mexican national with a prior conviction in 2002 for unlawful sexual conduct of a minor. A court in Mesa, Arizona, handed down the conviction. Del Rio Sector agents also arrested a previously deported sex offender that same day. The Honduran national illegally crossed the border near Eagle Pass. A New Brunswick, New Jersey, court previously convicted the now 26-year-old male in 2012 and sentenced him to 255 days in prison for sexually fondling a child. Immigration officers deported the man in 2013. The following day, Nogales Station agents apprehended a 24-year-old Salvadoran national. Records pulled by the agents uncovered the man’s membership in the MS-13 gang who had previously been deported.

Self-identified MS-13 gang member arrested by Border Patrol agents says he came to US with caravan: CBP

A self-identified MS-13 gang member arrested over the weekend told Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that he was part of the caravan of immigrants trying to enter the U.S. Agents working the El Centro Sector crossed paths with the man eastward of the Calexico Port of Entry in California on Saturday around 6 p.m., the agency said in a news release. Border Patrol agents questioned the man, who they “suspected of being in the United States illegally,” upon which he revealed he was a Honduran citizen and part of MS-13, CBP said. “The man also told agents he traveled to the United States border with a large group of people from Central America intending on filing for asylum in the United States,” the news release said. The individual was later identified as Jose Villalobos-Jobel, 29, who will be held until he’s ultimately sent back to Honduras, CBP said. “As President Trump and Secretary Nielsen warned, over the last few weeks we have identified over 600 known criminals and gang members in the caravan,” the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement. “We are now predictably seeing members of the caravan – which includes criminals – show up at the border and claim asylum. These threats are only going to increase in light of illegitimate judicial injunctions and loopholes created by Congress.”

President Trump was criticized by Dems and the dominantly liberal mainstream media when he said MS-13 and other bad actors were in this so-called “caravan of migrants.”  Apparently he was exactly right.  Of course this story isn’t being reported by those liberal news agencies, as it undermines their narrative.  Typical..

First caravan-related violence reported in U.S. as rocks thrown at Border Patrol

The Border Patrol reported the first major instance of migrant caravan-related violence Saturday, saying a Honduran man threw rocks at agents to try to keep from being arrested Friday in Arizona. The 31-year-old, whom authorities didn’t name, had climbed a tree to try to avoid capture, then lit the tree afire and began to throw rocks at the agents as well as a helicopter called in to help track him. Neither the agents nor the helicopter were hit by the projectiles. The man was eventually arrested, and agents said he told them he was part of the migrant caravan that had been in the news. They said he had previous arrests in the U.S. and had been deported back in June. A local fire department had to be called to extinguish the fire. Caravan members totaling as many as 10,500 have been massing on the Mexican side of the border in recent weeks, Homeland Security officials say. While many images of the caravan show women and children, U.S. authorities say a majority of members are single adults, predominantly men, from Central America. That would make the Honduran man’s claims of caravan membership plausible. President Trump last month had specifically warned of the danger of rock-throwing by caravan members, and had said agents should treat rock-throwers as if they were using firearms. Indeed, rock-throwing, or “rocking” incidents, as they’re known to agents, can be violent encounters, often involving small boulders hefted at agents or their vehicles with enough force to shatter bones or dent trucks. U.S. officials have been worried about caravan-related violence since watching thousands of people bust through Mexico’s southern border, tussling with Mexican police who’d been sent down to try to prevent them from entering. It’s not clear why the Honduran man broke off from the rest of the caravans to attempt to enter on his own. Agents had first detected him when they spotted footprints along the border just east of the Andrade, California, border crossing.

Large Group of Central American Migrants Apprehended 60 Miles into Texas

Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents apprehended a large group of mostly Central American migrants marching through a ranch located about 60 miles north of the Texas-Mexico border. The group included an unaccompanied minor. Agents assigned to the Hebbronville Border Patrol Station came upon a suspicious vehicle in an area known for human smuggling. As the agents approached the vehicle, the driver jumped out and fled into the brush. Agents said that no one else was inside the vehicle, according to Laredo Sector Border Patrol officials. Agents could not locate the driver but managed to find a presumed drop-off location for what appeared to be a group of migrants attempting to circumvent the immigration checkpoint by walking through a ranch. After picking up the trail, the agents tracked the group until they eventually caught up with them. The agents apprehended 17 people they determined to be illegally present in the U.S., officials said. The migrants came to the U.S. from El Salvador (2), Guatemala (13), and Mexico (2). The group reportedly included one unaccompanied minor. The agents arrested the group of migrants and transported them to the station for processing. Officials seized the abandoned vehicle. Human smugglers frequently abandon migrants in the brush under circumstances that often lead to injury or death. In July, Border Patrol agents rescued a woman who had been left to die. Hebbronville Station agents received a call that a woman had become lost on a ranch, Breitbart News reported. Quickly responding, the agents managed to find the woman and provide her with medical assistance. A few days earlier, Hebbronville agents received another call from a woman who said she and her male companion were lost and the man desperately needed medical attention. The agents responded with the assistance of a National Guard helicopter aircrew and quickly located the couple. Unfortunately, the man had become unresponsive and eventually died from symptoms of heat and dehydration. So far this year, 344 migrants died during or shortly after illegal border crossings. Of those, 207 died in Texas alone.

American lawyers rush to Mexico to help caravan

A team of American lawyers is being deployed to Mexico to help advise members of the new migrant caravan on their options as they try to reach the U.S. and, in many cases, to demand asylum. The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights, a Los Angeles-based organization, said it wanted to be proactive in getting assistance to the caravan, which has reached Mexico City. “Our immigration attorneys are part of a humane, compassionate, and concrete response for migrants,” said Luis Perez, legal services director for the group. While the elections have pushed the caravan from the front pages this week, thousands of Central Americans are still intent on reaching the U.S. They’ve camped in Mexico City where, according to local news reports, they are debating the route they’ll take as they head north, trying to reach the U.S.-Mexico border. President Trump has deployed more than 5,000 active-duty U.S. troops to the American side of the border, where they are hardening the ports of entry with razor wire fencing and working to support Border Patrol agents in the field. But it’s not clear the troops will have much effect on migrants who intend to show up at the ports of entry and demand asylum, exploiting what the administration calls “loopholes” that allow them to gain a foothold here even though few will eventually be deemed qualified. Mr. Trump last month said he would sign an executive order this week clamping down on asylum claims, though he didn’t give any details.

THIS is why it is imperative that these individuals NOT be allowed to step one foot on U.S. soil.  Once they do, then they’ll get all sorts of legal protection and other freebies that we, the actual tax-paying legal citizens of America, will have to pay for.
