More IA’s crossing our poor borders

September 17, 2016 Leave a comment

For the second time in three years, the U.S. Border Patrol is apprehending more non-Mexicans than Mexicans along the southwest border, reflecting a renewed surge of Central American migrants fleeing violence and gang warfare in their home countries.

Many of those apprehended are children traveling alone or in so-called “family units,” and come from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, according to newly released statistics from U.S. Customs and Border Enforcement. Nearly two-thirds of the apprehensions occurred within the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector, spanning much of Texas’s southernmost tip.

Through August of this year, there were a total of 369,411 apprehensions on the U.S.-Mexico border. More than half of those were of non-Mexicans, the statistics show. As of July, the border patrol had apprehended 57,344 people from El Salvador, 58,337 from Guatemala and 41,042 from Honduras compared to 160,193 from Mexico.

Apprehensions of non-Mexicans first outnumbered those from Mexico in 2014, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center. Faye Hipsman, policy analyst at the Migration Policy Institute in Washington, D.C., says the trend isn’t fading.

“It’s definitely clear that these flows are enduring,” Hipsman said. “They’re not going to go away anytime soon. We’re likely to see significant numbers of Central American unaccompanied children and families crossing the border.”
A huge surge of undocumented immigrants, including children fleeing the “northern triangle” of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras without their parents marked 2014. The influx elicited strong responses from those on both ends of the political spectrum. Both President Obama and then-Gov. Rick Perry deemed the situation a humanitarian crisis. Perry called for the swift deportation of the unaccompanied minors, saying that allowing them to stay would only encourage more to come.

Mexico boosted security along its southern border, hoping to curb illegal immigration through the country, but the efforts have not had a lasting effect, experts say.

Hipsman said Mexico’s increased border enforcement worked for a time in 2015, “but this year, it kind of looks like smugglers have found their way around that enforcement or are just increasingly beating it.”

Her views are reflected in a U.S. Customs and Border Protections report published Sept. 9 which indicates apprehensions overall are higher this year than in 2015, but below the rates of 2014 and 2013.

“They’re not going to go away anytime soon. We’re likely to see significant numbers of Central American unaccompanied children and families crossing the border.”
— Faye Hipsman, immigration analyst
As of August, the apprehension of unaccompanied children from El Salvador and Guatemala far outpaced apprehensions of unaccompanied children from Mexico. The same holds true for family units — individuals apprehended with a family member — apprehensions for those from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras compared to those from Mexico.

But unlike in 2014, the Border Patrol may be better prepared to process the large volume of Central American immigrants. Border Patrol spokesmen declined comment for this article, but the agency’s report detailed plans for “expanded capacity for refugee processing.”

“There isn’t the surprise element,” Hipsman said. “They aren’t blindsided by these flows anymore. They’ve worked on management and processing them. So you don’t see you know, just that hysteria that we saw in 2014.”

AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT SEXUAL PREDATOR TERRORIZES AUSTIN, TEXAS

September 17, 2016 Leave a comment

Nicodemo Coria-Gonzalez, rapist of a 68-year-old Texas woman — and previously deported five times.

Nicodemo Coria-Gonzalez, a 26-year-old illegal alien from Mexico now in custody in Austin, Texas, is thought by detectives to be a violent serial sexual predator who since December had terrorized women in North and Northeast Austin. Previously deported five times, he could serve as Donald Trump’s new poster boy for get-tough deportation policies and a massive border wall — replacing San Francisco’s Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, the undocumented Mexican immigrant facing murder charges for shooting 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle as she strolled with her father along a trendy pier. That crime inspired “Kate’s Law.” Like Austin’s Coria-Gonzalez,  Lopez-Sanchez had a long rap sheet and had been deported five times.
One of Coria-Gonzalez’s reported victims was a 68-year-old woman who walks with a cane. He had spotted her sitting at a bus stop and offered her a ride to the store. She was sexually assaulted.
Austin, the state’s capital, is a trendy liberal enclave in a red state, as well as being a hi-tech mecca, college town, and veritable sanctuary city. It attracts many undocumented immigrants seeking work from employers who have no qualms about hiring them. Austin prohibits police from reporting illegal aliens to immigration authorities. The Travis County sheriff’s office, on the other hand, cooperates with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, and holds jailed suspects in the Austin area on “immigration detainers” made by ICE. That may change in the near future, however, because the popular Democratic candidate for Travis County sheriff, Constable Sally Hernandez, has pledged to follow the same policy as San Francisco and stop cooperating with federal immigration authorities. This would make Austin the first full-blown sanctuary city in Texas. “I just don’t think you solve the criminal justice process by deporting them,” the liberal Democrat told the Texas Tribune. “We talk about being progressive. I believe we need to lead the way.”
ICE says Coria-Gonzalez was previously deported five times between 2012 and 2015. During those years, his rap sheet included three drunken driving arrests and tampering with a government record. After his arrest last month, ICE quickly filed an immigration detainer against him, thereby ensuring he remains in jail even if he makes his $890,000 bond.
Police believe Coria-Gonzalez may have assaulted at least 10 women and are asking victims to come forward. He presently faces two counts of kidnapping, two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of aggravated sexual assault – all related to three attacks. One of his victims was stabbed several times. She had pulled out a knife when fighting off Coria-Gonzalez, but he turned it on her. She escaped with her life.
Police tracked down and arrested Coria-Gonzalez for allegedly kidnapping a prostitute and trying to set her on fire after dousing her with gasoline. He had offered to give her a ride to a gas station to buy cigarettes. She escaped unharmed. Detectives subsequently connected Coria-Gonzalez to other violent sexual assaults after identifying his car in the gas station’s surveillance video. In all, he assaulted at least six women at a favorite location – a remote area he called his “garden,” police said.
“We do know there are additional victims out there who have not come forward…We’re not sure of how many,” Robert Thompson, a detective with the Austin Police Sex Crimes Unit, told local news channel KXAN. Noting that Coria-Gonzalez’s crime spree had become increasingly violent, he said that “We believe probably about half (his victims) are prostitutes.” They ranged from their early 20s to late 60s.
Kate’s Law,” which was derailed by Democratic lawmakers, would have mandated long prison sentences for illegal immigrants who return to the U.S. after being deported. Had the law been on the books, Kathryn Steinle may not have died – and Austin would have been spared from Coria-Gonzalez.
Coria-Gonzalez, to be sure, is hardly the first illegal alien from South of the Border to run afoul of the law, including for sexual assault – a crime that is widespread in Mexico’s culture. Indeed, rape is a veritable courtship ritual in Mexico’s backward hinterlands, home to Mexico’s peasant culture from which most of Mexico’s illegal immigrants come. And, no, Donald Trump didn’t say that. That’s according to a Pulitzer Prize-winning article in The Washington Post: “In Mexico, an Unpunished Crime.”
It’s hardly surprising, then, that 80 percent of woman and girls journeying illegally to the U.S. report having been raped while traveling through Mexico.
The number of criminal illegal aliens in America is not known; definitive statistics are hard to come by. But in her book “Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole,” conservative author and pundit Ann Coulter teased out some alarming figures, writing: “The available data suggest that the crime rate among immigrants is astronomical.” She explained that in 2006 “nearly a third of the 2 million prisoners in state and local facilities that year were foreign born. Piecing together state and federal reports, it appears that half the correctional population in California consists of illegal aliens.”
No doubt this reflects what ordinary Americans have been seeing up-close; or have long suspected when regularly seeing crime reports in their local media outlets. No wonder Donald Trump struck a nerve when asserting that more than a few of Mexico’s illegal immigrants are criminals: drug dealers, gang bangers – and, yes, rapists.
Obviously, all that diversity that liberals tout as being good for us isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Just ask Coria-Gonzalez’s victims – and all those ordinary Americans that Hillary Clinton disparages as “deplorables.”

United States Border Patrol Southwest Family Unit Subject and Unaccompanied Alien Children Apprehensions Fiscal Year 2016

September 17, 2016 Leave a comment

Overall apprehensions by the Border Patrol in August along our southwest border – which include apprehensions of single adults, unaccompanied minors, and family units — increased somewhat from the previous month. For the year to-date, overall apprehensions continue to be somewhat higher than in Fiscal Year 2015, but lower than FY 2014 and FY 2013.

The Department of Homeland Security and its federal government partners continue to closely monitor current migration trends and are working aggressively to address underlying cases and deter unauthorized migration, while ensuring that those with legitimate humanitarian claims are afforded the opportunity to seek protection.

DHS and its components continue to enforce U.S. immigration laws and to do so consistent with our enforcement priorities, which were revised as part of the President’s executive actions in November 2014. These priorities more sharply focus our limited enforcement resources on public safety and border security.

We also recognize the need to provide a safe, alternative path to our country for individuals in need of humanitarian protection. Recently, the Government of Costa Rica announced its agreement to enter into a protection transfer arrangement with the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees and the International Organization for Migration to help address this regional migration challenge. For cases not requiring immediate transfer to Costa Rica, the U.S. is establishing an in-country referral program in countries of origin including Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala. This will enable vulnerable residents in the region to be considered for refugee protection in the United States after being screened and interviewed by Department of Homeland Security officers. The U.S. Government has also announced expansion of the categories of individuals eligible for participation in the Central American Minors program, when accompanied by a qualified child. Further information is available here.

While we believe this expanded capacity for refugee processing is an important step, we recognize the ultimate solution to the humanitarian situation in Central America is long-term investment to address the underlying conditions there.  We continue to work closely with our federal partners and the governments in the region, and we are pleased with the $750 million in support Congress provided this year in aid to Central America.

Illegal immigrant numbers skyrocket at Mexican border

September 17, 2016 Leave a comment

Stop The Invasion of the US! | Stop Illegal Immigration! Enforce the Laws

Child migration is surging again.

The number of families and unaccompanied children apprehended on the southern border has skyrocketed this year, according to new figures from the Obama administration.
The numbers, compiled by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), reveal that child migration is on par with 2014 levels, when a wave of kids — thousands of them unaccompanied — arrived at the southern border.
The surge of illegal immigration quickly swamped border authorities, immigration courts and health and humanitarian workers, while sparking a political battle on Capitol Hill over the cause and proper response to the crisis.

The new figures raise the specter of another increase this summer. That would almost certainly inflame another political showdown in a volatile presidential year in which the issues of race, immigration and border security have been pronounced — particularly due to the hard-line enforcement approach adopted by the presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump.

Through the first six months of fiscal 2016, which ended on March 31, border officials apprehended 27,754 unaccompanied children, the CBP reported — a 78 percent jump from the 15,616 apprehended in 2015, and just shy of the 28,579 apprehended in 2014.

For family units, which consist of at least one child traveling with at least one adult, the increase was even more dramatic. In the first six months of 2016, 32,117 families were apprehended, the CBP reported — an increase of 131 percent from the 2015 figure (13,913) and 62 percent from the 2014 figure (19,830).

Kevin Appleby, director of international migration policy at the Center for Migration Studies, proposed several reasons for the increase. For one, the violence plaguing Central America — particularly El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala — still exists, he noted, sending people fleeing north for their lives.

“The forces driving the migration are still strong,” he said.

Appleby also suggested the human smugglers accompanying the migrants might have adapted to a crackdown by Mexican authorities in 2015, allowing the smugglers to elude capture and get more people to the U.S. border.

Appleby, along with many other human rights advocates, has been critical of Mexico’s policing efforts, and the Obama administration’s support of them. They fear that many people eligible for asylum in the United States never make it that far, but are instead returned by Mexican authorities to dangerous conditions in Central America.

“Our policy of deterrence is clearly not working no matter how much we pay the Mexican government to do our dirty work,” Appleby said Wednesday.

It’s unclear if the 2016 increases will continue into the summer and rival the surge total of 2014. The Obama administration has scrambled to prevent a similar crisis since then, and Congress last year approved $750 million to help stabilize El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras in hopes of slowing the flow of people trying to come to the U.S.

In January, the Homeland Security Department tried another deterrent strategy, launching a series of controversial raids on scores of families that had arrived in the 2014 surge and putting them in line for deportation.

Jens Manuel Krogstad, of the Pew Research Center, noted Wednesday that the strategy might have worked.

“This fiscal year, family and unaccompanied children apprehensions spiked in December 2015, and in January 2016 the Department of Homeland Security launched immigration raids targeting families,” Krogstad wrote on Pew’s blog. “Since then, monthly border apprehensions have dropped below 2014 levels.”

News Flash from MEXICO!

July 20, 2016 Leave a comment

OPINION-

I have heard a lot of idiotic statements from many world leaders but this one absolutely takes the cake in my opinion. Read it for yourself and see what you think…….

The President of Mexico threatened at the world economic summit grave consequences if Trump gets the Presidential seat: all the Mexicans in the USA will be going back home to Mexico.

The Mexican government announced they will close their borders to Americans in the event that Donald Trump is elected President of the United States. President Enrique Peña Nieto announced the country fears Americans will flood their country and bring violence and chaos to their streets. “Many Americans have expressed a desire to relocate to our country in the event that Donald Trump becomes President. We cannot have Mexico flooded with criminals and rapists,” he said. (But, all these “Americans” who want to flee are Democrats ! they can’t be criminals and rapists…)

In an interview with Telemundo, Nieto also announced that “further action will be taken by the Mexican government to ensure every single citizen of Mexico currently residing in the United States is brought home safely.” “We will not play around with something as important as the lives of our people. In our eyes and the eyes of every Mexican in the world, Donald Trump is a xenophobic, bigoted terrorist and imperialist who will ruin a country that was once a true friend of Mexico.” (And a true friend of the USA would never send it’s poor, uneducated, criminal people to the USA Either!)

However, many Mexicans who have managed to obtain a U.S. citizenship through legal channels fear this move. Mexico is currently the 3rd largest trading partner of the United States, with $507 billion worth of goods trade in 2013 alone. “Although shutting down the influx of billions of dollars that our people send home every month could cripple our economy, I still believe this is the right thing to do in the long run,” the President argued. “We’ll bring our people home, where it is safe and welcoming. We will be able to offer them better and more civilized working conditions.”

“Besides,” Nieto opined, “If, by some miracle, President Trump somehow manages to get back American jobs from China, which I doubt he’ll succeed, they’ll be needing good workers because they won’t be having any Mexicans anymore. But what they don’t understand is the fact that, if they do get those jobs back, they are going to cost the government much more than a simple low-wage Mexican worker would. And good luck trying to maintain the number one economy in the world then.”

“Too long has the Mexican worker in America been discriminated and oppressed because of his skin color,” the President stated. “And when our people come back home, they will take our food, music, culture and all things Mexican along with them. And in case you’re reading this, Mr. Trump – yes, that does include Mexican prostitutes you’re so secretly fond of. So, you can forget about the Sunday night specials with all-you-can-undress free deals. Because, we know everything.”

“Finally, I would like to add that all of your professional athletes, actors and actresses and pretty much all celebrities can kiss the steroids and drugs goodbye. Your country is built on cocaine, heroin, crack, marijuana (which is a Spanish word, by the way) and steroids that have come to America through Mexico. Thanks to these substances, you were able to have Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kobe Bryant, Michael Jackson, Nirvana and pretty much your entire popular culture. But, I guess you already knew that when you signed up to vote for Mr. Trump and his famous wall. Good luck with him, and good riddance,” President Nieto concluded in his interview. (well, that just took care of the illegal drug trade across our borders, thanks Sir)

Seriously, I doubt that he actually said any of this and No I have not taken any time to research it!

3 illegal immigrants charged in shooting death of 17-year-old high school student

September 7, 2015 Leave a comment

 

Three illegal immigrants were charged Saturday in connection with the murder of a 17-year-old Virginia high school student who was gunned down on his way to a bus stop Friday morning.

According to The Washington Post, Danny Centeno-Miranda, who attended Park View High in Loudoun County, was about 50 yards from the school bus stop when he was shot twice in the back.

Centeno-Miranda, who moved to Virginia from his native El Salvador to live with relatives in 2013, died later at Inova Fairfax Hospital.

Three suspects, from Sterling, Va., were arrested Saturday morning, the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office announced, according to the paper.

“This was not a random incident.”

– Sheriff Mike Chapman

A 17-year-old is charged with second-degree murder and with using a firearm while committing a felony. His name was not released because he is a minor. Henry Dominguez Vasquez, 20, and Juan Aguirre Zelaya, 18, also were arrested and charged with being accessories to the shooting and with possession of a firearm while in the country illegally, the paper reported.

Authorities have learned that the suspects are undocumented immigrants based on information given to them by the suspects, Kraig Troxell, a spokesman for the Loudon County Sheriff’s Office, told The Washington Post.

All three suspects are to be arraigned Tuesday. They are being held without bond.

“This was not a random incident,” Sheriff Mike Chapman said at a news conference Saturday, the paper reported. “The suspects and the victim were known to each other.”

Investigators said at the news conference that the victim knew the suspected assailants from the neighborhood and may have lived in the same complex. The accused shooter may have attended Park View High with Centeno-Miranda, Richard Fiano, commander of the criminal investigations unit, said.

“We’re looking into that there may be some gang affiliation, however we don’t know what the reason was just yet for the incident taking place,” Chapman said,according to the paper.
