Feds discover ‘most sophisticated’ cross-border tunnel with extensive ventilation, rail system

Immigration enforcement agents have uncovered a cross-border tunnel that U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is saying could be the “most sophisticated” yet. Stretching from San Luis, Ariz. to San Luis, Mexico, the smuggling passageway includes a fully developed ventilation system, electrical wiring and a rail system. According to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), authorities discovered the tunnel in late July, before it could be completed. Photos show the tunnel measured three feet wide and four feet high. The discovery was made during an ongoing, multi-agency effort by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI). “This appears to be the most sophisticated tunnel in U.S. history, and certainly the most sophisticated I’ve seen in my career,” Border Patrol Yuma Sector’s Acting Chief Patrol Agent Carl Landrum said in a statement Thursday. “We will continue to work closely with our partners – Homeland Security Investigations and state and local agencies — to provide the best national security possible.” Earlier this year, authorities announced they had found the longest known border smuggling tunnel, which stretched from Tijuana to San Diego. The tunnel originated near the Otay Mesa Port of Entry and measured 4,309 feet long — more than three-quarters of a mile. The next-longest tunnel in the U.S., discovered in San Diego in 2014, was 2,966 feet long. In March, authorities located a tunnel containing a variety of drugs — including about 1,300 pounds of cocaine, 17 pounds of heroin, and two pounds of fentanyl. CBP has warned in the past that drug trafficking from the U.S.-Mexico border region results in the loss of American lives. News of the tunnel came on the same day that CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan held a press conference in which he warned about the scourge of smuggling. “As the U.S. continues to take on the challenges posed by COVID-19, we must secure our borders from illegal aliens who show their complete disregard of even the most basic application of health and safety precautions, which have become our new norm against COVID-19,” said Morgan, showing pictures of container trucks packed with migrants He added that criminal organizations and smugglers provide false promises to migrants and “have no concern for their safety or the safety of American citizens — again in this backdrop of COVID-19.” He explained that the migrants are kept in crowded, unsanitary stash houses for days in the sweltering heat, a situation he described as a “perfect incubator” for the new coronavirus.

Indeed..  And that’s just the latest consequence of illegal immigration..  Kudos to the great people in CBP and Homeland Security who discovered this before it was completed, and shut it down.  Excellent!!       🙂

Poll: 7-in-10 Voters Support Trump’s Exclusion of Illegal Aliens in Congressional Apportionment

About 7-in-10 United States registered voters support excluding illegal aliens when it comes to determining representation in Congress, a new poll reveals. A poll by Rasmussen Reports and Just the News Daily finds that voters overwhelmingly support excluding illegal aliens from congressional apportionment counts, which determine how many representatives each state receives in Congress. Last month, Trump signed a memorandum that ensures American citizens receive proper representation in Congress without being minimized by apportionment counts inflated by the illegal alien population. Overall, about 70 percent of all voters said they support excluding illegal aliens from such counts — including nearly 30 percent who want only citizens counted. Less than a quarter said they want illegal aliens included in the counts. Across party and racial lines, Trump’s decision is hugely popular. About 72 percent of white Americans, 67 percent of black Americans, and 57 percent of Hispanic Americans said they supported counting either only citizens or citizens and legal residents when determining congressional representation for the states. A majority of Republican voters, 52 percent, said they support counting only citizens in the counts, while 57 percent of Democrats and 65 percent of swing voters said they support excluding illegal aliens. Liberals are the most likely of any group to say illegal aliens should be counted in congressional apportionment counts, while conservatives are the most likely to want only citizens counted. About 43 percent of liberals said illegal aliens should be counted. Conservatives, on the other hand, said by a 53 percent majority that only citizens should be counted. The sanctuary state of California has filed suit against Trump for the memorandum, admitting in their legal case that their 2.2 million-strong illegal alien population is used every ten years to drive up their congressional representation in Washington, DC. Before Trump’s memorandum, red states that disincentivize illegal immigration were set to lose congressional representation. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) previously estimated that if there are roughly 15 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. and if they are counted in congressional apportionment, they could help secure 20 additional congressional seats for blue states. A 2018 analysis by Breitbart News determined that only counting American citizens — excluding all non-citizens, including illegal aliens — in congressional apportionment, would shift political power away from coastal states to middle America. Today, there are an estimated 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. The Census estimates that at current legal and illegal immigration levels, by 2060, about one-in-six residents will have been born outside the country. The poll surveyed 1,200 registered voters and was conducted from July 23 to 25. The margin of sampling error is +/- 2.8 percent.

We are right there with the majority of Americans who want only U.S. citizens counted in the Census, and for congressional apportionment.  Only U.S. citizens should be counted and considered for their representation in Congress, and for voting in general (i.e. presidential) elections.  This is what the overwhelming majority of Americans want, and we at The Daily Buzz agree.  Democrats in Washington D.C., however, disagree.  They want to include as many illegal aliens as possible.  That’s why they are trying to get illegals voting rights, free health care (that you and I pay for), driver’s licenses, and on and on..  And, it’s why they’re so against a strong wall on our southern border in order to deter mass illegal migration. Remember that in November.

ICE Arrests Four-Time Deported Child Sex Abuser Illegal Alien in Utah

A four-time deported illegal alien, previously convicted of child sexual abuse, has been arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents in Utah. Roberto Montes-Lopez, a 37-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, was arrested by ICE agents on July 2 after he was released from the Weber County Jail in Utah. Montes-Lopez had been serving a prison sentence for second-degree felony child sexual abuse. In June 2015, after returning illegally to the U.S. for the fifth time, Montes-Lopez was convicted and sentenced to no more than 15 years in prison for the child sex crimes. Montes-Lopez has a criminal record dating back to 2004. “Law enforcement’s common goal is to keep communities safe and keep dangerous predators off the streets,” ICE official Sylvester Ortega said in a statement. “The arrest of a criminal alien like Montes-Lopez, whose criminal history spans nearly two decades, demonstrates why cooperation is so important between agencies,” Ortega said. “These partnerships will continue to protect the community from criminal illegal aliens that hurt the citizens of this country.” Between 2004 and 2011, Montes-Lopez was deported four times from the U.S. In January 2012, Montes-Lopez was prosecuted for felony illegal re-entry. Montes-Lopez’s rap sheet also includes: 2005 conviction for drug possession and distribution 2011 convictions for use of a firearm by a restricted person 2015 convictions for money laundering and drunk driving 2020 conviction for possession and distribution of heroin ICE officials say Montes-Lopez will remain in custody until he is deported for the fifth time.

As a rule of thumb, we tend to avoid the crime beat stories here at The Daily Buzz.  But, given Joe Biden’s new platform to just open our borders to illegal aliens and all, we’ll make an exception here.  This story shows the importance of clamping down on illegal immigration and criminal aliens.  We need to rid our communities of people like this worthless waste of space.  Major kudos to ICE for nabbing this loser.  Hopefully, once he’s deported for the fifth time, he won’t be able to get back in.

Federal Judges Help Free Nearly 200 Illegal Aliens: Murderers, Rapists, Sex Offenders

Federal judges have helped release nearly 200 illegal aliens into the United States — many convicted of murder, rape, and child sex crimes — in the midst of the Chinese coronavirus crisis. Data released by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency this week reveals that about 192 illegal aliens, thus far, have been ordered freed from detention into the U.S. About 171 of those illegal aliens have either been convicted or accused of crimes against Americans. Los Angeles, California; Boston, Massachusetts; New York City, New York; and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania have seen the most widespread court-ordered releases of illegal aliens. In Los Angeles, for instance, 52 illegal aliens have been freed into the U.S. About 43 of those illegal aliens have been convicted or accused of crimes such as homicide, assault with a deadly weapon, juvenile sex offenses, and child cruelty. Federal judges in Boston have helped free 44 illegal aliens from ICE custody so far. About 42 of these illegal aliens have been convicted or accused of crimes like rape, assault, drug trafficking, and domestic violence. Likewise, ICE has been forced to release 34 illegal aliens in New York City — 32 of whom have been convicted or accused of sexual assault, rape, assault, cruelty toward a child, drug possession, and drunk driving.

Holy crap!!  Sooo…to be clear, they’re fining, and in some cases jailing, law abiding citizens for not wearing masks or going to the beach in places like California..  BUT, they’re letting criminal aliens out of jail who have committed rape, murder and so on…  Insanity!!   For more, click on the text above..

Harvard/Harris Poll: 5-in-6 Americans Want to End Immigration from Mexico

In the midst of the Chinese coronavirus crisis, about five-in-six American adults said they want to see the United States end all immigration from Mexico. The latest Harvard/Harris Poll asks Americans whether they would support or oppose an immigration moratorium on Mexico during the coronavirus crisis. Overall, 83 percent — or five-in-six — said they favor ending all immigration from Mexico at the moment. This sweeping support for ending immigration from Mexico includes 75 percent of Hispanic Americans and 77 percent of black Americans. Another 73 percent of Democrat voters said they support ending immigration from Mexico, while 84 percent of swing voters and 93 percent of Republican voters support such a measure. Even among the most liberal voters, nearly 70 percent said they support ending immigration from Mexico, as well as 74 percent of voters who supported failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016. The poll comes as Mexico’s coronavirus cases continue to climb, now reaching nearly 1,000 confirmed infections with 20 deaths and 938 active cases. While the overwhelming majority of Americans want to see an end to immigration from Mexico, the State Department has issued waivers that will more quickly fast-track many Mexican workers into the U.S. through the H-2B and H-2A visa programs. The directive effectively allows agricultural and nonagricultural businesses to quickly import foreign workers on H-2A and H-2B visas without standard interview and application procedures. As Breitbart News has reported, immigration moratoriums are not uncommon in American history. Currently, there are about 45 million foreign-born residents living in the U.S., a 108-year record high. The country’s last immigration boom — between 1900 and 1920 — was eventually met with a near immigration moratorium. Between 1925 and 1966, the U.S. legal immigration level did not exceed 327,000 annual admissions. Since major changes were enacted in 1965 by President Lyndon B. Johnson (D) and in the 1990s by President George H.W. Bush (R) — changes that allow foreign nationals to bring as many foreign relatives to the country as they want — legal immigration levels have continued booming for about five decades. Today, about 1.2 million legal immigrants are admitted to the U.S. every year.

And that’s not even counting the over 22 MILLION illegal aliens living here already.  Americans of all political stripes and affiliations are saying enough is enough.  We need a moratorium on ALL immigration, legal and illegal.  Our infrastructure is being crushed.  And, especially in these times, it is critical we put a stop to immigration entirely, and in fact, work to remove those who shouldn’t be here in the first place.  Now is the time to be ramping up deporting illegals by the hundreds of thousands (and yes, you read that correctly), paying particular attention to known gang members, criminal aliens, and those determined by an immigration judge to be deported…regardless of age or gender.  And NOW is the time for the federal government to ramp up construction of the wall/fence on our southern border.  This poll must be driving Democrat politicians, the dominantly liberal mainstream media, and the rest of the open-borders crowd absolutely crazy.  🙂

Illegal Aliens Demand $1.2K Each in Taxpayer-Funded Checks

Illegal aliens are demanding they too receive $1,200 in federal checks from the government as part of a Chinese coronavirus crisis relief package. Open borders organizations like the George Soros-funded United We Dream, the National Immigrant Justice Center, and the National Immigration Law Center — all of which represent the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States — are pleading with the federal government to cut federal checks to illegal aliens who have Individual Tax Identification Number (ITINs). Currently, Trump’s coronavirus relief package includes $1,200 federal checks for American citizens with Social Security Numbers (SSN) or those considered “resident aliens,” like permanent lawful residents in the U.S. on green cards. Illegal aliens, therefore, are excluded from receiving the federal checks, a provision that has outraged the open borders lobby. “Everyone, regardless of immigration status, must have access to testing, medical care & financial relief. Congress must ensure that all Americans can focus on keeping their families & communities safe & healthy,” officials with the National Immigrant Justice Center posted online. Illegal alien advocates with United We Dream said the federal checks should go to all residents regardless if they are here illegally or not: Illegal alien advocates are asking the public to urge lawmakers to provide federal checks to illegal aliens in the midst of the coronavirus crisis. “All people, regardless of immigration status, must be included in the stimulus,” a petition reads. “Cash payments must go to all taxpayers, including immigrants who pay using an ITIN … coronavirus testing and care must be free and accessible to all: Amend Emergency Medicaid to cover Covid-19 costs, so patients get care regardless of immigration status.” The petition also asks lawmakers to overturn President Trump’s “Public Charge” rule that ensures American taxpayers are not paying to permanently resettle legal immigrants who have been found to rely on public welfare and federal aid. Today, there are anywhere from 7.8 to 8.1 million illegal aliens working illegally in the U.S. economy — primarily holding jobs that would have otherwise gone to working-class Americans.

And, that should infuriate every single American…especially those looking for a job.  This story proves what we’ve been saying here at The Daily Buzz for over six years; that the reason the overwhelming majority of illegals come here, is for the freebies that we, the actual citizens of America, pay for.  We have OVER 22 MILLION illegal aliens in this country.  That is a staggering statistic.  And now these illegals and their shameless advocacy groups are “demanding” that they receive money from this Wuhan virus bill that President Trump just signed into law the other day.  Are you kidding me?!?  The brazen nerve!  Here’s what we should do…  Just set up a sting operation.  Advertise a place and time where these illegals can come pick up their check, and then have ICE be there to confirm their identity, arrest them, and then deport them back to wherever the hell they came from.  We need to be deporting these illegals by the hundreds of thousands (and yes, you read that correctly), paying particular attention to known gang members (i.e. MS-13, etc.), convicted criminal aliens, and those already determined to be deported by an immigration judge…regardless of age or gender.  Period.

ICE deports illegal immigrants to Central America, brings back Americans stranded under coronavirus measures

Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is using flights deporting illegal immigrants to two Central American countries to bring back Americans stranded by restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic. ICE, working with the State Department, has brought home 209 U.S. citizens on the return leg of two deportation flights to El Salvador and Honduras, the agency said in a statement. Those flights took place on March 22 and 24, respectively. Acting Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Ken Cuccinelli touted the moves in a series of tweets where he posted pictures of the Americans being brought home. “This was an ICE flight repatriating Hondurans to Honduras, & ICE arranged your bring stranded Americans home on the return flight from Honduras,” he tweeted. Both countries have placed significant restrictions on movement and travel over the coronavirus, with Honduras closing its borders entirely — leaving some foreigners stranded. A U.S. women’s tackle football team was airlifted out of Honduras on Friday by the U.S. military after being stuck there for nearly a week. The Trump administration last year made a number of Asylum Cooperative Agreements with Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, which includes greater cooperation for returning migrants to their countries. ICE said in a statement that it will continue to use flights from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala to return U.S. citizens. The agency said that such operations could also be expanded to countries outside the Northern Triangle. The U.S. has placed a number of restrictions on non-essential incoming travel at the northern and southern border, as well as from Europe, China and Iran, but those restrictions do not apply to U.S. citizens or legal permanent residents. On illegal immigration, the Trump administration has said it will change procedures in order to protect officers and the general public, while continuing to apprehend and deport illegal immigrants.

Thanks to acting DHS Sec.Ken Cuccinelli for this smart policy of using aircraft deporting/repatriating illegals back to their countries of origin, to bring American citizens back.  Smart/wise use of federal monies.  Now, more than ever, DHS and ICE need to be deporting illegals here by whatever means necessary.  We have over 22 MILLION illegal aliens in this country, and their very presence is crushing our  nation’s infrastructure.  So, we need to be deporting them by the hundreds of thousands (and yes you read that correctly)…regardless of age or gender.  And, we need to seriously ramp up construction of the wall/fence on our southern border and ensure border security now more than ever.

Coronavirus: Federal Judge Rules Migrants Must Stay in Detention Center

A federal judge in Seattle rejected three nonprofits’ effort to force U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to release migrants in a detention center in Washington state because of the threat from coronavirus. U.S. District Judge James L. Robart on Thursday denied a request for a restraining order requested by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), the ACLU of Washington, and the Northwest Immigrant Rights Project. The organizations argued that holding migrants who are older or have underlying medical conditions puts them at high risk for contracting the virus. “There is no evidence that anyone at NWDC has COVID-19, and plaintiffs do not address the measures defendants are taking to prevent such a spread from occurring,” Robart said in a Law360 article on the development. Law360 reported on the ruling: ” Attorneys have told Law360 that they are concerned ICE is not prepared to handle a potential outbreak of the virus at the agency’s detention centers, where immigrants are trapped in communal spaces. ICE has been hit with numerous lawsuits accusing it of not providing detainees with adequate medical care, including an August complaint alleging the agency has been failing to ensure centers operated by private contractors are meeting the standards of confinement mandated by federal law and the U.S. Constitution.” Eunice Cho, an attorney for migrants, issued a statement vowing continued litigation. “Public health officials are in agreement — it is not a matter of if there is a COVID-19 outbreak in immigrant detention centers, but when,” Cho said. “ICE should heed their warning. By refusing to immediately release our clients, ICE is jeopardizing their lives and the lives of its staff and their families.” Law 360 reported that ICE responded Wednesday to the request for the restraining order, but the filing is not being made public. The case is Dawson v. Asher, No. 2:20-cv-00409 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington.

Thanks to Judge Robart for this well-considered decision, especially given the current paradigm.

Joe Biden: No Deportations for Any Criminal Illegal Aliens in My First 100 Days

Former Vice President Joe Biden (D) is vowing, once again, that he will not deport a single criminal illegal alien from the United States in his first 100 days. During CNN’s Democrat debate Sunday night, Biden recommitted to not deporting any illegal aliens, no matter their criminal history, in his first 100 days — and afterward allowing no deportations unless they are first prosecuted and convicted of felonies. “In the first 100 days of my administration, no one, no one will be deported at all,” Biden said. “From that point on, the only deportations that will take place is convictions of felonies in the United States of America.” Biden — who, along with Obama, oversaw thousands of deportations and detention of border crossers between 2008 to 2016 — has attempted to angle his national immigration plan to appease the open borders lobby that has blasted him for failing to commit, like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), to ending all deportations of illegal aliens, regardless of criminal history. As Breitbart News has reported, research finds that deporting these 11 million to 22 million illegal aliens saves American taxpayers billions of dollars, compared to the costs they are forced to pay when illegal aliens are allowed to stay. Deporting every illegal alien in the country would amount to a cost savings of about $622 billion over the course of a lifetime. This indicates that deporting illegal aliens is six times less costly than what it costs American taxpayers to currently subsidize the millions of illegal aliens living in the U.S.

How crazy is that?!?!  As we’ve been saying from day one here at The Daily Buzz..  It is absolutely crucial that we continue deporting illegals.  In fact, we should be ramping that up substantially, and deporting them by the hundreds of thousands…regardless of age or gender.  And yes, you read that correctly.  What crazy Joe is suggesting he’d do here is insanity and gives criminal aliens a green light signal that they’d get a free pass under a Biden presidency.  Of course, this is just more pandering to the Bernie, open borders base of the party in this primary season.  Be sure to scroll down two articles to read about how gutless a wuss crazy Joe really is.

ICE director says deporting illegals from border surge would take 140 years

The head of Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Wednesday, that at current deportation rates, it would take 140 years to remove all the illegal immigrants who came in during the border surge of the last two years. Matt Albence, ICE’s acting director, said the border surge over the last two years added 900,000 cases to ICE’s non-detained docket, which now totals more than 3.3 million. That far outstrips the agency’s ability to track down and deport people, he told the House Appropriations Committee. “We arrested about 2,500 non-criminal fugitives last year. If we do that, based on just the numbers that came in the last two years, it would take us about 140 years to clear up that backlog,” Mr. Albence said. He was defending ICE’s significant budget increase request for fiscal 2021, which envisions an average of 60,000 detention beds each day. That’s up dramatically from the 34,000 beds the Obama administration had for its final years, and nearly 15,000 more than Congress approved for this current year. “Without additional resources to actually effectuate a judge’s removal orders, we will have an immigration enforcement and court system in which billions of dollars a year are spent to obtain orders, that are not worth the paper they are written on,” Mr. Albence told the House Appropriations Committee.

Absolute insanity…  As we’ve been saying here at The Daily Buzz for over 6 years, we need to be deporting illegals by the hundreds of thousands…and yes, you read that correctly.  Mr Albence’s testimony here gives credibility to our position.  Remember, we have over 22 MILLION illegal aliens in this country.  That’s a staggering number, and it’s crushing our nation’s infrastructure.  The Trump Administration is making progress.  But, they need to take a far more aggressive posture.  Given the new novel coronavirus situation, they can use that to justify a more aggressive posture.  Hopefully they will.  And, of course, it is critical that we BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!…and make that our number one domestic national security priority.  Click on the text above for more of this article.
