This Is a ‘Cheat Sheet’ Found at the Border to Coach Illegals on How to Stay in the U.S.

U.S. law enforcement officials have been finding “cheat sheets” along the border used by illegal immigrants to try to stay in the United States and not get deported after they’ve been caught.

The notes, believed to be supplied by human trafficking groups, give pointers in Spanish on what immigrants should say when confronted by border authorities.

One federal law enforcement official dubbed them “illegal alien cheat sheets.”

A copy of one sheet obtained by TheBlaze lists a series of questions that U.S. authorities will consider in granting someone an immigration hearing.

“It’s proof they are told what to say,” a Department of Homeland Security official told TheBlaze. Often times, the sheets get “destroyed or thrown away before illegal aliens are apprehended.”

An illegal alien cheat sheet found on one of the illegal immigrants crossing the southern border into the United States. The sheets have been found on numerous illegal aliens. According to federal law enforcement officials the human trafficking organizations, who are making huge profits from the surge of illegal traffic from Central America, are supplying the cheat sheets to those who pay them to cross.

The sheet obtained by TheBlaze has handwritten notes about the appropriate “yes” or “no” answers to the questions, along with some jotted personal notes on what to say to U.S. authorities. They include, “Who did you live with?” and the answer, “My aunt, but she crossed the border.”

Another handwritten question is, “Where does your father live?” The answer underneath reads, “I don’t know him or even his name.”

Border Patrol agents in McAllen, Texas, have said most of the illegal immigrants they encounter have the same “rehearsed” answers about having “credible fear” in fleeing their countries so they will not be returned.

Among the printed statements in Spanish on the sheet are:

• Why did you abandon your country?

• Because of poverty and misery.

• You’re in fear of your government and afraid to live in your country.

• You’re afraid of extortion from Maras [MS-13 gang].

• Do you have family in the United States?

• Is this the first time you’ve come into this country?

• Did you swim across the river?

• Somebody told you that if you brought a minor child into the United States you can stay.

More than 52,000 unaccompanied minors from Central America have illegally crossed into the United States over the past eight months, mainly through the Border Patrol’s Rio Grande Valley sector in Texas. Many of the families arriving from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatamala believe they will not be returned home if they have young children with them, authorities say.

Federal law enforcement officials told TheBlaze the sheets are prepared by human traffickers whose job it is to ensure passage of the illegals into the U.S. The cost of traveling from Central America to the United States can vary from $5,000 to $8,000, according to recently arrived immigrants and law enforcement officials who spoke to TheBlaze. Many who cross the border use the “credible fear” claim, saying they are afraid to return home, and knowing that they will obtain a notice to appear in immigration court to appeal to stay in the country.

“It’s proof they are told what to say.”


Because of the overcrowded conditions at border facilities, many families are released at their own recognizance and subsequently fail to report to their hearings.

“Several years ago, we would hold illegal aliens until their court date,” the DHS official said. “We didn’t have this huge crisis when they knew they couldn’t get away and were being held. Now we let everyone go because we have no space — the administration also makes it impossible to do our job and deport them.”

Senator Sessions Does His Part to Defend America–But Where is the GOP Leadership?

The GOP congressional leadership is AWOL in serious opposition to the border chaos that has been encouraged by the Obama Administration. Just think what the Republican leadership could do if the will was there—Senators and Congressmen could be filibustering, cutting off funds, speaking to the press—opposing with one voice what the government is doing and demanding that the administration secure the border.

But of course the GOP leadership doesn’t do that. If only Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions were running the GOP. Check this out :

Exclusive- Sen. Jeff Sessions: Pro-Amnesty Elites Treat People as Commodities (by Senator Sessions, Breitbart, June 22, 2014).

Besides the text, it includes a video of Senator Sessions grilling Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson. Sessions asks Johnson to tell the world that you cannot enter the U.S. illegally, and Johnson just won’t do it. Watch the video!

Write your senators and congressmen, or better yet, call their offices, and ask what they are doing now to fight this. And you Alabamans ought to be asking Sessions to run for president.


Previously deported sex-crime felon re-arrested in Wilsonville

WILSONVILLE -- A Mexican national deported in 2012 after serving a prison sentence for felony sex crimes was re-arrested in Wilsonville Thursday.

Victor Ozuna Bernal, 35, was booked into the Clackamas County Jail and later was taken into custody by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents.

Suspect in slaying of border agent Brian Terry extradited to U.S

Lionel Portillo-Meza, accused of killing U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry in a case related to the U.S. government's "Fast and Furious" debacle, has been extradited from Mexico to Arizona, where he'll face murder charges.

He pleaded not guilty when arraigned on Wednesday in Tucson, Arizona and is being held without bond. Along with the alleged mastermind behind the Benghazi attack, Portillo-Meza is the second high profile Obama administration capture in as many days at a time when most of the news regarding this administration has been from bad to terrible.

Portillo-Meza was captured in Mexico two months later and a second suspect was arrested the following year. Two others remain at large. A fifth suspected gunman pleaded guilty in the United States to first-degree murder and was sentenced to 30 years in prison last February.

A sixth defendant who was in custody at the time of Terry's slaying pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges in connection with the case and was sentenced to eight years in prison in January 2013, prosecutors said.


Drug cartel operatives wait with baited breath

David Cross has explained why citizens, not only in the Portland Metropolitan area, but all across the state, should be very concerned about issuing driver cards to illegal aliens and, in the end, the terrible price citizens will pay.  Should our elected officials be working so hard to make it even easier for drug cartels and their operatives to get an even stronger foothold in our state? 

Why would they do that?  Because big business and big money have been influencing lawmakers to issue driver cards with no proof of legal presence, so the illegal workforce on which they rely, won't be caught up in pesky immigration issues if stopped for a traffic violation.

Meanwhile - Oregonians are at even greater risk as illegal drugs are delivered statewide, horrific crimes are committed and lives are lost - just so illegal aliens can get to their illegal jobs -  hired by unscrupulous employers to work at restaurants, hotels, in construction, landscaping, drywall, concrete and more.

To put a finer point on it - the majority of Oregon Legislators would prefer to bow down to big business than to uphold their oath of office and the laws of the land.  In other words - you, your family and your safety are just not as important.  You will simply be 'collateral damage' caused by loosening restrictions on Oregon driver cards.

Your NO vote in NOvember can put an end to this foolish and dangerous law.  Please vote - and tell your friends and family to vote NO in NOvember!

If you just don't have time to volunteer - we would be happy to have your financial support for our winning statewide campaign.  We were very fortunate to have a donor offer Protect Oregon Driver Licenses a $5,000 matching grant.  Your $5, $20 or even $100 donation will be matched dollar for dollar!  Please consider a generous donation to help with the campaign.





National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers - Press Release


America is undergoing the most intensive campaign of Political Deception ever launched against Americans by her political leaders.

The Administration, the members of the U.S. Senate that voted for S-744, and every other member of Congress that supports a path to

citizenship, regularization or any other form of amnesty for illegal aliens before providing for full protections for National Security (jobs & economy) and Public Safety (the right of the people to be secure in their property and person) are fully responsible for the wave of illegal aliens flooding into the United States today.

There is a solution to this and it requires defining the root source of the problem.

Any elected member of the Executive or Legislative Branch of the U.S. Government that has not stood up and demanded that current Immigration Law be enforced vigorously since 1986 is fully and exclusively responsible for this latest invasion. This is not a

humanitarian crisis. It is a predictable, orchestrated and contrived assault on the compassionate side of Americans by her political leaders that knowingly puts minor Illegal Alien children at risk for purely political purposes. Certainly, we are not gullible enough to believe that thousands of unaccompanied minor Central American children came to America without the encouragement, aid and assistance of the United States Government. Anyone that has taken two six to seven year old children to an amusement park can only imagine the problems associated with bringing thousands of unaccompanied children that age up through Mexico and into the United States. I doubt even the Cartels would undertake that chore at any price. No, it has to be heartless corrupt politicians and their minions lusting for more money and power.

The non enforcement of America's Immigration Laws has lead America to the next step in becoming a failed state in that we are arguably a lawless nation by not enforcing the Immigration Laws or upholding the Constitution. Yes, our leaders are guilty. However, we are responsible because it is the American voter that has placed untrustworthy people in positions of power and kept them there when they have clearly demonstrated that they have violated that public trust. These successful con artists are well dressed, attractive and charming. Putting untrustworthy officials in charge of America is how Americans are robbed in the 21st century, with the aid of the IRS, DOJ, BLM, DHS, EPA, HHS, etc., of their money and their God given rights.

Will this heartless criminal exploitation of Central American infants and children finally awaken Americans to the ruse being foisted upon them by their government, the media and other interested parties, or has America lost her ability to stand up against the tyrants and do what is right rather than what is easy? Obviously, this administration thinks you are as corrupt as they are and will vote them back into office or these young children would not be streaming into America to tug at your hearts and empty your heads of reason.

We at NAFBPO are mightily encouraged to see that Texas has once again stood up against tyranny and shone the brilliant light of freedom across the land by setting an example for freedom loving Americans to follow:

We further believe that the only way to overcome the criminal element leading this nation today is for the people to rise up and report in mass to the ballot box with fire in their hearts for the rule of law, our Constitution and the voice of freedom on their lips and remove these criminals and replace them with true patriots who will protect America first.

Arizona rushes aid to site holding migrant kids, complains of fed plan bringing them to state

PHOENIX — Angry about the federal government sending from Texas to Arizona immigrants who are in the country illegally, Arizona officials say they are rushing federal supplies to a makeshift holding center in the southern part of the state that's housing hundreds of migrant children and is running low on the basics.

Gov. Jan Brewer's spokesman, Andrew Wilder, said Friday that conditions at the holding center are so dire that federal officials have asked the state to immediately ship the medical supplies to the center in Nogales...

... the (illegal) immigrants were mostly families from Central America fleeing extreme poverty and violence.

...432 unaccompanied minors detained in Texas arrived in Nogales on Friday, with 367 more expected both Saturday and Sunday.

...children will be vaccinated and checked medically. They will then be sent to facilities being set up in Ventura, California, San Antonio, Texas, and Fort Sill, Oklahoma.

...17 or younger. The official estimated three of every four were at least 16.

...the program that has shipped unknown thousands of adult migrants and their children to Arizona since last month shows no sign of stopping, he said...
Homeland Security started flying immigrants to Arizona from the Rio Grande Valley in Texas last month after the number of immigrants, including more than 48,000 children traveling on their own, overwhelmed the Border Patrol there.

The immigrant children were flown from Texas, released in Arizona, and told to report to an ICE office near where they were traveling within 15 days.

Brewer sent an angry letter to President Barack Obama...she hadn't received a response to her letter by Friday...

...Officials say about 100 lawyers and paralegals will be enrolled as members of AmeriCorps in a new division called "justice AmeriCorps."

Immigration officials can immediately return Mexican immigrants to the border, but they are much more hard-pressed to deal with Central American migrants who illegally cross into the U.S. In recent months, waves of migrants from nations south of Mexico have arrived in Texas.

The Homeland Security official said that legally, only their parents or guardians can take custody if the government makes the children eligible for release.
