Del Rio Sector Border Patrol agents arrested a previously deported child rapist in a town located about 75 miles north of the Texas-Mexico border. Immigration officers deported the convicted sex offender in 2018. Agents assigned to the Rocksprings Border Patrol Station arrested a 26-year-old man they determined had illegally entered the U.S. The agents transported the subject to the station in Rocksprings, Texas, where they conducted a biometric background investigation. The investigation revealed that a court in Seattle, Washington, convicted the Mexican national in 2011 for rape of a child. Despite an extensive criminal history, the court in Seattle sentenced the criminal alien to only one year in state prison. Immigration officers removed the violent sex offender in 2018, according to information obtained from Del Rio Sector Border Patrol officials. “Violent criminals continue to illegally cross the border to make their way further into the United States,” Del Rio Sector Acting Chief Patrol Agent Matthew J. Hudak said in a written statement. “Our agents are committed to preventing these types of criminals from entering and harming our communities.” Federal prosecutors in the Western District of Texas are expected to file felony charges for illegal re-entry after removal as a sex offender. If convicted under the 8 USC § 1326 charge, the illegal immigrant could face up to 20 years in federal prison. “All individuals arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol undergo record checks using biometrics to ensure those with criminal history or gang affiliation are positively identified,” Del Rio Sector officials stated.
The government is on track to catch nearly 100,000 illegal immigrants at the border this month, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Monday, renewing the administration’s plea for Congress to do something. That number would be the worst in more than a decade, and it’s more troubling than the worst years because the migrants are children and families who despite being unauthorized, are almost impossible to deport. “The situation at our Southern Border has gone from a crisis, to a national emergency, to a near systemwide meltdown,” Ms. Nielsen said in delivering an update on the state of her department 16 years after it was established. Ms. Nielsen said the border wall is part of the solution, but also said Congress must change the laws to allow for detention and faster deportations of illegal immigrant children and families. According to the latest numbers, 98 percent of those caught at the border in 2017 is still in the U.S. today, underscoring how difficult it is to remove them in the current framework. March’s nearly 100,000 migrants — which includes those encountered at ports of entry demanding admittance without permission, and those nabbed by agents after they jumped the line between the ports — compares to about 76,000 in February. At the beginning of this decade, the rates were less than 30,000 a month. Ms. Nielsen said her department’s challenges go well beyond the border.
The House Democrats’ first offer to President Trump in negotiations to fund his proposed United States-Mexico border wall includes a provision that would end all immigration enforcement for migrants trafficking children across the southern border. The draft budget provides the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency with $7.4 billion, nearly $850 million less than requested by the Trump administration, and funds only 1,250 beds for adults and migrant children coming across the border this year, a decrease in detention space. Attached to that funding, though, is an immigration enforcement ban first introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and supported by every Senate Democrat. The Democrats’ offer demands that all immigration enforcement end for any adult crossing the border with a child by the end of Fiscal Year 2019. Rather than being held in detention for a period of time, those adults and the migrant children they trafficked across the U.S.-Mexico border would be released immediately into the interior of the country. Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) previously called the plan the “Child Trafficking Encouragement Act” as it ensures that adults bringing children to the southern border would gain immediate access into the U.S. without fear of being deported or turned away. The number of adult illegal aliens arriving at the southern border with children has continued surging under Trump. The latest Department of Homeland Security (DHS) data reveals the number of adults crossing the border with children has skyrocketed 280 percent compared to the same time last year. Last year, the U.S. saw a record number of adult border crossers coming to the U.S. with children. This year, if border reforms are not implemented, DHS officials expect to break last year’s record. As of December 2018, overall illegal immigration is up 81 percent compared to the same time last year. As Breitbart News reported, the House Democrat offer does not include any money to construct a wall, much less a barrier, at the U.S.-Mexico border but it does provide about $502 million for “humanitarian concerns,” funding that illegal aliens and border crossers would have access to in the form of food, transportation, medical care, and housing.
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!
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.
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.
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..
