ICE Smashes Illegal-Alien Smuggling Ring in Nebraska, Missouri

Immigration enforcement officials have broken up a network which supplied illegal-migrant labor to many worksites in Nebraska and Missouri. “Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), a series of criminal arrest warrants were executed Wednesday for 17 individuals connected to an alleged criminal conspiracy to exploit illegal alien laborers for profit, fraud, wire fraud and money laundering in Nebraska and Minnesota,” said the statement, which continued: During the execution of these search warrants Aug. 8, 133 illegal workers were administratively arrested for immigration violations; some will be issued notices to appear before a federal immigration judge and released from custody; the rest will remain in ICE custody pending immigration court proceedings. The operation and the 150 arrests spotlight the revival of immigration enforcement since 2017 by President Donald Trump, after years of minimal enforcement by Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama. The Nebraska operation may help deter employers from hiring illegals at black-market rates instead of hiring Americans are market-level salaries. The raids are also pushing farmers to legally hire more visa-workers via the growing H-2A visa program instead of relying on illegal-labor brokers. The ACLU of Nebraska condemned the raid.

Gee..  What a surprise..  Losers.  ICE should do their job, and then when self-righteous, agenda-driven idiots like the ACLU whine, they should just say, “you’re welcome.”   To read the rest of this article, click on the text above.

Border Patrol Agent: Trump’s wall is the best way to end to the humanitarian crisis on our southern border

If Democrats and the media elite truly cared about the safety of illegal immigrants, they’d be down on the border right now working to build the wall President Trump wants America to have. As a veteran Border Patrol agent, I know firsthand that a secure border with the big beautiful wall the president is building is the only humane and permanent solution to the crisis at the border. Despite Democratic obstruction, President Trump is building the wall now, and he will play hardball with Congress to ensure that the necessary funding to complete the wall is secured. Without a completed wall, thousands of illegal immigrants will continue to put their lives at risk. As long as people think they can cross the border illegally, they will continue to try. The journey is dangerous enough due to the natural conditions alone. Traveling hundreds or even thousands of miles on foot, often in extreme heat and without adequate water, is no easy trip for an adult – let alone for a child. But those who try to cross our southern border illegally are subject to much worse than just the elements – they are at the mercy of brutal criminal gangs. The illegal immigrant smuggling trade is dominated by predatory “coyotes” connected to Mexico’s worst drug cartels. They care little for the lives of their human cargo. These are the sorts of people who don’t think twice before leaving illegal immigrants to die in locked trailers under the desert sun. The coyotes’ control of human smuggling across the border results in routine violence, theft, and death, as well as the widespread rape of Central and South American women and girls. A 2014 Huffington Post report stated that 80 percent of illegal immigrant women and girls are raped during their travel. In addition to discouraging illegal border crossings and protecting desperate migrants from violence, rape and death, securing the border will save American taxpayers vast amounts of money. It will also free up the resources necessary to expedite legal immigration and review the ever-growing backlog of asylum claims. According to a 2017 study, the presence of illegal immigrants and their 4.2 million kids costs Americans roughly $135 billion in taxes at the federal, state, and local levels. That’s a tax burden of roughly $8,075 per illegal alien family member. Another recent report revealed that the federal government spent $1.4 billion just housing illegal immigrant unaccompanied minors, which works out to $670 per unaccompanied minor per day. President Trump is only requesting an additional $25 billion to complete his border wall – a one-time cost that is minor compared to the cost of illegal immigration. Building the wall will also solve the family separation issue. If families can’t enter illegally, then they won’t be separated while the adults await trial and sentencing. A wall would also funnel legitimate asylum seekers to proper ports of entry. True asylum seekers have no need to cross the border illegally. Securing the border once and for all won’t just protect desperate migrants from harm and save Americans money – it will also protect Americans from harm. The massive influx of unaccompanied minors across the border during the Obama administration brought with it a massive increase in MS-13 gang violence. Mexico’s cartels are also taking advantage of our porous border and flooding our communities with deadly drugs. Finally, there is also the terror threat. Border Patrol agents routinely apprehend Middle Eastern suspects trying to enter America illegally. The closer President Trump’s wall comes to completion, the closer we get to end the humanitarian crisis caused by our porous southern border. The Democrats’ dream of open borders and their unrelenting opposition to securing our border hurts the people they claim to care about the most.

Exactly!!  And well said, Brandon!  Brandon Judd is the president of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC), the exclusive labor representative of approximately 16,000 Border Patrol agents.  As we’ve been saying here at The Daily Buzz for years (LONG before Trump even ran for President), it is way past time that we BUILD THE WALL NOW!!!!…and put U.S. Army National Guard troops physically ON the border with Mexico.  And, they should remain on the border until that wall/fence is finally built above, and below ground (to prevent tunneling)…however long it takes.  We’ve been hammering away on that issue for years for national security and economic reasons primarily.  Branon now makes the case from a humanitarian perspective.  Just another reason to make it happen NOW.

National Guard deployment led to more than 10,000 arrests of illegal immigrants, says CBP

The National Guard’s deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 “deportable alien arrests” of people who illegally entered the United States from Mexico, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman said Monday. Because guardsmen are military personnel and not law enforcement officers, they cannot apprehend illegal immigrants. But CBP officers and Border Patrol agents apprehended thousands of people that guardsmen helped point out. The National Guard’s presence also helped lead to the interception of more than 3,300 others who were turned back before they crossed into the U.S., CBP press secretary Corry Schiermeyer said in an email to the Washington Examiner. The Guard’s deployment has also led to an additional 11,686 pounds of marijuana being seized as a result of their work. There are 1,601 National Guard troops at the border assisting with various surveillance, maintenance, and related operations. That number could tick up considerably if the 4,000 National Guard troops President Trump approved on April 4 are called on in a future request from CBP. Troops are providing support from the air, surveillance backup, and assistance with infrastructure projects like vegetation clearing and road maintenance, not including border wall construction. Another task is to specifically free up agents to leave their desks and get back out to the field. The troops monitoring remote video surveillance systems have then been able to report sightings to a greater field of agents, and thus the number of apprehensions has increased, officials said. The deployment is funded through the end of fiscal 2018, Sept. 30. Ronald Vitiello, then-acting CBP deputy commissioner, said in April the intent of the mission is for CBP to regain operational control of the border.

Feds: 1-in-5 Illegal Aliens Crossing with Toddlers Are Criminals, a Danger

About 1-in-5 illegal alien adults crossing the United States-Mexico border with toddlers under the age of five are either criminals, not the child’s parent, or present some other danger to the child. A new report released by the White House finds that of the 102 border crossing toddlers who were mandated by the courts to be reunited with the illegal alien adults they arrived with, 21 of the adults were found to be unfit to be reunited with the toddlers they crossed with. This means that about 1-in-5 illegal alien adults arriving in the U.S. with toddlers are not eligible to have those children placed back in their care and custody after being separated at the border. The White House outlined the cases of the 21 illegal alien adults who are unfit to be reunited with the toddlers they arrived with. Click here to see the breakdown:

MS-13, Other Gang Members Caught After Illegally Crossing Border

Border Patrol agents assigned to the Rio Grande Valley Sector stopped MS-13 and 18th Street gang members after they illegally crossed the border from Mexico into Texas during the weekend following the Independence Day holiday. Agents in the Del Rio Sector also stopped another MS-13 member. Agents assigned to the Weslaco Station arrested a Honduran male near the town of Edinburg, Texas, on July 5. During a biometric background investigation, the agents learned the man had been ordered removed from the U.S. following a conviction for sexual assault of a child..

Kudos to these BP agents for catching these maggots..  For more, click on the text above.

DHS expands power to initiate deportations

The Trump administration has expanded the government’s deportation powers, issuing guidelines urging officers at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services — the agency that oversees legal immigration and naturalization — to begin the removal process for people who use fraudulent documents or who illegally took government benefits. USCIS officers have always had powers, but in the past had usually referred cases to other parts of Homeland Security for decisions on deportation. But new guidance memos reviewed by The Washington Times show USCIS is now pushing to advance its own role in policing illegal immigration. “For too long, USCIS officers uncovering instances of fraudulent or criminal activity have been limited in their ability to help ensure U.S. immigration laws are faithfully executed,” L. Francis Cissna, the agency’s director, said in announcing the changes publicly. “This updated policy equips USCIS officers with clear guidance they need and deserve to support the enforcement priorities established by the president, keep our communities safe, and protect the integrity of our immigration system from those seeking to exploit it.” The memos tell agency employees to be on the lookout for people who apply for naturalization or another legal immigration benefit but who have criminal records, used fraudulent documents, lied about their applications or had abused public benefit programs. In the past, those might have been enough to reject the application, but USCIS would either drop the issue or refer the case to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for possible deportation. Under the new guidelines, dated June 28, USCIS employees are now urged to begin the deportation process themselves. That involves issuing a Notice to Appear, or NTA, which signals the beginning of the deportation process. Someone who receives an NTA then must go before an immigration judge, has the chance to appeal, and only then is deported. “When fraud, misrepresentation, or evidence of abuse of public benefit programs is part of the record and the alien is removable, USCIS will issue an NTA upon denial of the petition or application, or other appropriate negative eligibility determination,” the guidance says. The new guidance reclaims USCIS’s role as a gatekeeper and expands the number of government employees on the lookout for deportable migrants. The immediate effect could be to discourage people with bogus claims from coming forward to apply, since they now run a greater risk of ending up in deportation proceedings. People applying under the Obama-era DACA program are exempted from the new guidance, meaning illegal immigrant “Dreamers” won’t generally have to worry about being put in deportation if their claim is rejected. The prohibition on sharing their information with ICE is also still in place..

As the number of illegal aliens here in America is in the tens of MILLIONS, this is nowhere near enough.  But, hey..  It’s a small win.  So, we’ll take it..

Police launch dragnet for 3 illegal aliens accused of raping Ohio sisters

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency joined the nationwide search for three men accused of kidnapping and raping two teen girls in Ohio, authorities said. A fourth suspect has been arrested and charged in the alleged crime, police said Tuesday. Bowling Green police are searching for David Ramos Contreras, 27, Juan Garcia Rios Adiel and Arnulfo Ramos. Police said Contreras is from Mexico. It is unclear where the others are from, though Adiel possesses a fraudulent permanent resident I.D. out of Florida, police said. Adiel and Ramos are not believed to be U.S. citizens, according to WKRC-TV. The fourth suspect, Simon Juan Thomas, 24, of Guatemala, was arrested and charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, police said. Thomas was booked into the Wood County Justice Center, according to the Dayton Daily News. The incident occurred sometime around June 28 after the victims, 13- and 14-year-old sisters, were taken to a hospital telling medical workers they had been sexually assaulted and held captive at a Bowling Green motel, WTOL-TV reported. Police said the teens had escaped their captors. Police released photos of Contreras with two women exiting a Walmart in Holland on June 30. Police were seeking to identify the women. Police were asking the public for help finding the three suspects. The men were in the Bowling Green area working – two as dry wallers and one at Greenline Foods, according to WTOL-TV. They were reportedly staying in the motel, as were the girls with their mother.

Let’s hope the authorities apprehend the rest of these disgusting maggots soon.  Keep this story in mind as you hear all of the bleeding-heart liberals talk about how “undocumented immigrants (or ‘migrants’)” are just helpless, honest, hard working people that we need to help.  Whatever..
