Cartels Use Wristbands to Track Human Smuggling Over Border

McALLEN, Texas—Illegal border-crossers are coming into the United States wearing wristbands that relate to the smuggling organization or cartel that they paid to cross the river, according to new reports and confirmation by Border Patrol agents.

The wristbands have been spotted on illegal immigrants in the Rio Grande Valley in south Texas, as well as discarded on the ground beyond the river. Some illegal aliens were found wearing two different colored wristbands.

The system “basically outlines a process that the smugglers are using to know who paid, who didn’t, so that they can start moving them through—because they’ve got so many people backing up,” according to Jaeson Jones, a former captain in the Texas Department of Public Safety.

The wristbands have numbers, words, and logos on them. “We’ve seen turtles, we’ve seen devil heads and little snakes,” Jones told The Epoch Times. The Gulf Cartel (CDG) is using the word “metal” to signify a certain leader on the Mexico side, he said. . .

Three More States Introduce Bills to Give Driver’s Licenses to Illegal Aliens

​Pennsylvania, Minnesota, and Idaho have introduced bills that would give driver's licenses to illegal aliens.  This legislation is dangerous because driver's licenses are useful to create an appearance of lawful presence and they serve as a virtual passport to the nation, opening many doors that would otherwise be unavailable. They are also used for countless other purposes like registering to vote and applying for government benefits, as well as for establishing bank and credit card accounts.  . .

Biden Cancels Trump's Program that Targeted Sex Offenders Living in the U.S. Illegally

Biden has made it clear that his number one mission as president is to undo everything the Trump administration accomplished over the last four years.

His newest cancellation simply does not make sense.

Biden’s administration recently cancelled Operation Talon, a Trump administration program aimed at removing convicted sex offenders living in the United States illegally.

Though the program seems to be something everyone should support, it clearly isn’t. Why would anyone want sex offenders to remain in the country?

South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson joined a coalition of 18 state attorneys general to urge Biden to reverse the cancellation, according to ABC 4 News. . .

Angel Mom Says Biden Creating "Super Highway" to Border

 

An Arizona mother whose son was killed by an illegal alien said the Biden administration’s border policies are “absolutely” going to create more “angel families.”

Angel families are relatives of those who have been killed by an illegal immigrant.

“That’s the saddest thing to me of all,” Mary Ann Mendoza told The Epoch Times on Feb. 8. “I’ve been speaking out on this for 5 1/2 years now.”

Mendoza’s son, Brandon, was killed in a 2014 car crash caused by an illegal immigrant who was drunk, high on meth, and speeding along a Mesa, Arizona, highway in the wrong direction. Brandon, a sergeant on the Mesa police force, was 32 years old. . .

 

EXCLUSIVE: Illegal Alien, Alleged Drug Trafficker On The Loose After Sanctuary Authorities Let Him Go, ICE Says

  • Mexican national Francisco Vasquez-Cruz was arrested on drug-trafficking charges by Oregon State Police on April 28 and booked into the Jackson County Jail. 
  • Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) confirmed to the Daily Caller News Foundation that Vasquez-Cruz is in the United States illegally, and is considered an ICE fugitive after Jackson County authorities ignored its detainer request and released him into the public. 
  • Oregon is a sanctuary state that largely restricts how local and state law enforcement can cooperate with federal immigration authorities. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) requested that Oregon authorities cooperate on the transfer of an illegal alien arrested for drug possession and money laundering, but they refused and the alien is at-large, the agency confirmed.

Cross: Anniversary of trooper's death a reminder of risks to law enforcement

Little more than 28 years ago, Oregon State Police Trooper Bret R. Clodfelter, 34, on September 30, 1992, stopped a car occupied by three intoxicated men near Klamath Falls. One of them was Francisco Manzo-Hernandez. Trooper Clodfelter arrested the driver of the car for DUII.

OSP Trooper Clodfelter, wanting to prevent Francisco Manzo-Hernandez or the other man from driving drunk, volunteered to drive the men home. The OSP Trooper frisked the two men before placing them in the back of his patrol car.

Tragically, Trooper Clodfelter missed a .38 caliber handgun Francisco Manzo-Hernandez had hidden on his person. Francisco Manzo-Hernandez shot Trooper Clodfelter twice in the back of the head. . .

House Freshmen Introduce Strong Immigration Bills in House

Two House freshmen – Reps. Yvette Herrell (R-N.M.) and Bob Good (R-Va.) – began their tenure in Washington by introducing FAIR-supported immigration legislation. Both bills represent actual immigration reform in the interest of American citizens and of the United States as a whole, in stark contrast to massive amnesty-only measures proposed by the Biden administration and Congressional Democrats.

Rep. Good introduced H.R. 398, the “No Asylum for Criminals Act.” This bill prevents convicted criminals from receiving asylum protection. This prevents aliens with prior criminal offenses in the United States from receiving asylum and eventually legal permanent residence. The asylum case backlog exceeded 1.3 million cases when President Trump left office on January 20. . .
