Letts: Sacrifices of Border Agents Go Ignored - It's Time for That to Stop

Three Customs and Border Protection agents were shot recently during a confrontation with suspected drug smugglers off the coast of Puerto Rico. One of the officers died.

The two smugglers were also shot during the Nov. 17 incident, and one died.

The sacrifice of the CBP agent who died should have been something that politicians praised, as would have happened if a service member or police officer had died in the line of duty. . . . Read more about Letts: Sacrifices of Border Agents Go Ignored - It's Time for That to Stop

Venezuelans Swarm Across Rio Grande at El Paso, Attack Border Patrol

On Monday, a large group illegally crossed the southern border into the United States at El Paso, Texas and attacked Border Patrol agents. One individual in the group was carrying a giant Venezuelan flag.

Bill Melugin and Adam Shaw of Fox News reported:

[Border Patrol] said one of the protesters assaulted an agent with a flagpole while another threw a rock at agents, injuring one in the process. That in turn led Border Patrol to initiate crowd-control measures.

"These measures included the use of the authorized less-lethal force pepperball launching system," the statement said. "The crowd then dispersed and returned to Mexico." . . . Read more about Venezuelans Swarm Across Rio Grande at El Paso, Attack Border Patrol

Trump Right—Biden’s Immigration Moves Show He Doesn’t Want America To Be A Nation At All

The Biden administration has just ended President Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols, including the “Remain in Mexico”policy that kept questionable asylum seekers out of our country. Homeland Security chief Alejandro Mayorkas said it was no longer needed and interferes with the administration’s objectives [Termination of the Migrant Protection Protocols Program, DHS.gov, June 1, 2021]. Trump condemned the move with astatement that implicitly explained what it will do: hasten The Great Replacement and dispossess the Historic American Nation. In other words, immigration remains the issue facing the country. If Republicans want to win in 2022, they must campaign against Biden’s Open Borders. . . .

FAIR: Federal Judge Knocks Down One of the Last Remaining Barriers to Complete Anarchy at the Border

“Since the moment he took office, President Biden has intentionally worsened an unprecedented surge of illegal migration, with Title 42 serving as the last constraint on his plan to completely abandon enforcement at our southern border. This is a fact that was recognized by border officials and lawmakers in both parties. This decision will lead to a skyrocketing of illegal entries, most of whom the Biden administration will simply process and disperse around the country.

“The initial ruling that kept Title 42 in place prevented the border crisis from becoming much worse, but based on the most recent numbers, it clearly was no match for open borders policies deliberately forced upon the American people. . . .

Seven-Time Deported Illegal Alien Accused of Five Rapes over Two Decades

An illegal alien, deported seven times from the United States, is now facing charges that he committed at least five rapes over the course of nearly two decades.

Carlos Nava, a 46-year-old illegal alien from Mexico, is facing multiple sexual assault charges in Clark County, Nevada. One of the cases dates back to 2003. Prosecutors are accusing Nava of raping prostitutes in Las Vegas and kidnapping one of them. After having been arrested in July, Nava was given a $5,000 bail and released from jail with an ankle-monitoring GPS tracker. . . .

Biden’s Handpicked Border Patrol Chief Admits There are No Consequences to Illegal Immigration

Raul Ortiz was appointed Chief of the U.S. Border Patrol in August 2021 by President Biden because of his willingness to go along with the administration’s lax border enforcement policies. In that role, Ortiz has towed the administration’s line that our borders are secure and our immigration laws are being enforced, even as it is plainly evident that they are not.

However, while Ortiz has been willing to lie for the administration in the media, he drew the line at perjuring himself. In July, Ortiz was deposed, under oath, by the office of the Florida Attorney General in a lawsuit brought by the state against the Biden administration’s handling of the border. A video of that deposition was publicly released in September. In it, Ortiz, under penalty of perjury, effectively calls Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Vice President Kamala Harris liars for claiming that our borders are secure. . . .

Biden’s Belated Border Numbers Tell a Terrifying Tale

Late on Friday October 21, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) finally released the September numbers for illegal aliens encountered at the Southwest Border: 227,547, an all-time high for any September on record. The numbers themselves make it clear why the Biden administration is so keen on keeping them out of the press and away from public view. In a functioning administration, legally mandated reporting of routine data doesn’t require coaxing or righteous vows. Unfortunately for Americans, the Biden administration’s sole function on the border seems to be allowing as many illegal aliens to cross as possible while trying to obscure that fact from the interested public. . . .

Mexican Migrant Pleads Guilty to Attempted Murder of Border Patrol Agent in Arizona

A Mexican migrant who illegally entered the U.S. in Arizona on January 6 pleaded guilty in U.S. District Court to attempting to kill a Border Patrol agent. The migrant pointed the agent’s gun at him, slashed at the agent with a knife, and attempted to gouge out his eyes.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona reported that 22-year-old Rey David Marquez-Jimenez, a Mexican national illegally present in the United States, pleaded guilty to attempting to murder a  Tucson Sector U.S. Border Patrol agent in January. . . .

Border Incompetence Leaves Over 60,000 Aliens in Limbo, Drawing Fire from All Sides

In May, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas stated that the objective of the Biden administration was “safe, orderly… pathways for individuals to be able to access our legal system”, usurping the congressional mandate for a secure border. However, it seems that under current leadership, DHS can’t handle even this watered-down mission. A scathing new report shows that the Biden administration failed to deliver this promised “orderly access” to tens of thousands of illegal aliens it has let into the country. The sheer scale of this failure threatens our already overloaded immigration court system. . . . Read more about Border Incompetence Leaves Over 60,000 Aliens in Limbo, Drawing Fire from All Sides
