After much success on the border that has been recently reported, such as a 40% increase in deportations of Mexicans and a successful National Guard deployment, the DHS is requesting for 700 more troops and helicopters, in an attempt to keep up the good work and secure our border.

ABC Reports: The Department of Homeland Security is asking the Pentagon for additional manpower and equipment to help secure the southern border, U.S. defense and Homeland Security officials tell ABC News.

The defense official said the Department of Homeland Security Wednesday will request about 700 additional National Guardsmen plus helicopters and other equipment. Defense Secretary James Mattis is expected to review the request and respond to DHS on Thursday.

The goal is to have it finalized in the coming days, according to a DHS official.

Not So Fast: Where are the Gun Running Records on Eric Holder?

Published

on

March 7,  Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Department of Justice (DOJ) would provide documents to Congress on the Obama-era program dubbed “Fast and Furious”.

The program allowed criminals to purchase guns in Phoenix-based gun shops in order to track them into Mexico.

The Justice Department, then run by Eric Himpton Holder Jr., declined to provide documents on the program to Congress in 2012 and was held in contempt of Congress.

Holder is the only Attorney General to be held in contempt of Congress.

Holder is an open border, pro-Amnesty, pro-Santurary city advocate, currently at the center of a battle between lawmakers in California, with the Senate wanting him to tight President Trump’s immigration policies, and the Assembly wanting him to go away.

Holder continues to be a social justice warrior using race against the American culture, and he has been active in a Democrat plot to redistrict States congressional lines, where Democrats need an edge to win US house races in 2018 and 2020. 

The decision to release the sought after documents ends six years of litigation with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

The Washington Times reported on the murder of a Border Agent, Brian Terry , who was killed by a criminal who had been encouraged to get guns under Holder’s scheme.

According to  Washington Times, “Mexican authorities said Thursday they’ve arrested one of the fugitives wanted on murder charges in the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry — a shooting that drew new attention to the dangerous border and exposed a botched Obama administration gun crimes probe.

Heraclio Osorio-Arellanes was part of a five-man “rip crew” that patrolled the border looking to rob drug smugglers, U.S. officials said. A team of agents got on their trail in December 2014 and the crew decided to shoot it out, killing Terry in the exchange.

Two of the weapons the crew used were part of the Obama administration’s botched Operation Fast and Furious, which had allowed straw purchasers to buy weapons in the U.S. and then smuggle them back to Mexico, where many ended up in the hands of the cartels.”

National Guard Deployment Leads To More Border Captures

Published

on

Who would have thought, more protection on the southern border has lead to more apprehensions. This is a continued sign of Trump’s follow through on his promise to tighten border security.

Washington Examiner Reports: U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers have apprehended an additional 1,600 people attempting to illegally enter the country from Mexico since April 15 as a result of the deployment of National Guard troops to the southwest border, CBP and defense officials said Wednesday.

National Guard officials overseeing the border state deployments said troops helping monitor the international boundary have freed up more border agents to physically guard the border. The result has led to a surge in the amount of criminal activity agents have stopped.

Mexico Beefs Up Southern Border Protection With Guatemala

Published

on

Ironically Mexico is beefing up security on it’s, you guessed it, Southern Border. The left in this country has called any increase in ‘Border Protection as “Racist”, how will they settle with the fact Mexico is itself, beefing up it’s border security.

NPR Reports: “They put up lots of checkpoints,” says Gustavo Rivera, a bus driver shuttling between Mexico’s southeastern border and the nearest city, Tapachula. “Immigration [agents], federal police, soldiers, local police. I don’t get many migrants on the bus anymore because of the checkpoints.”

President Trump singled out a group of families from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador heading to the United States as evidence that “Mexico is doing very little, if not nothing,” to stop immigration. But Mexico has actually assembled an aggressive enforcement strategy, with U.S. backing.
