You would have known about this well over a month ago IF you have been keeping track of these horror stories out of Arizona, New Mexico, texas & California here on FreeRepublic!
Just popped up on a news search. Glad you like it.
Huh? As opposed to just getting on a plane and flying to Chicago? WTF?
FYI - Hijinx, Gubamyster and myself got together and coordinated our efforts. Now we're working from a comprehensive list that includes everyone who wants to be alerted about border issues. As always, if you want to be added or removed just contact one of us.
Big Favor- If you run across any related article in the forum and note that it doesn't have "alien" as a key word it would be a great help to us if you added it. That's the primary index point that ties them all together and allows us to keep up. Thankyuhverymuch. - NRT
But what should also be mentioned:
Undocumented immigrants from countries other than Mexico or Canada will be deported within a few days rather than held for a hearing in most cases, the Department of Homeland Security announced yesterday.
Department officials cited national security concerns and a desire to end what is sometimes referred to as a "catch-and-release" system, in which many of these immigrants disappear into society while waiting for a hearing.
Although expedited deportations have been commonplace for immigrants caught at official ports of entry since 1997, yesterday's announcement expands the policy to those caught entering illegally by land elsewhere, within 100 miles of either border and within 14 days of arrival.
"There is a concern that as we tighten the security of our ports of entry through biometric checks, there will be more effort made by terrorists through our vast land borders," Asa Hutchinson, the DHS undersecretary for border and transportation security, said yesterday in Washington.
"We recognize we have to secure those."
According to the Border Patrol, 57,633 non-Mexican undocumented immigrants have been apprehended since October. The vast majority 94 percent were from the Western Hemisphere, including other Latin American countries.
Neat little read if ya get bored.........Stay safe and thanks for the pings !
How do you do a keyword (alien) search?
learning to blend in with Mexican illegals
Mexican illegal aliens are "hands-off" in NYC, LA, SF, DC, etc
time is their tool
Add me to your list please.
Maybe someone can compile a book from these articles and then we can personally deliver them to our senators. That way they won't be able to tell us they weren't aware that this was happening on our border.
This is highly unlikely to happen at least in my Sector.
Tanctredo is a lying POS. He is a sock puppet for the Bush-hating Buchanan.
We are taking action:
Border Patrol to Get Increased Deportation Authority
WASHINGTON (Talon News) -- Earlier this week, Department of Homeland Security Under Secretary for Border & Transportation Security Asa Hutchinson announced plans to increase the authority of border patrol agents to quickly deport persons crossing U.S. borders illegally. The plan is also aimed at "facilitating travel for legitimate Mexican visitors."
The new plan involves expanding the use of "expedited removal from the ports-of-entry to locations along the U.S. border," and "increasing the amount of time a border crossing card will allow a card-holder to remain in the U.S."
"We want to send a clear message that those individuals who follow legal immigration procedures will benefit while those who choose to break our nations immigration laws will be promptly removed from the U.S.," said Under Secretary Hutchinson.
"Expedited removal" has been used at official ports of entry in the U.S., such as airports and seaports, since 1997. However, it has not been applied on the land borders between the ports of entry.
According to the DHS, the expansion of expedited removal processing will allow the department to "speed the removal of illegal aliens who are caught while attempting to enter the United States by fraudulent means or while attempting to elude Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Border Patrol agents." DHS says the new procedure will only apply to those caught within 100 miles of the Mexican or Canadian borders, and only if they are apprehended within their first 14 days in the U.S.
Smuggler attempts to run over Border Patrol
On August 8, 2004, a Border Patrol Agent assigned to the Douglas Station fired two shots from his service issued rifle at the driver of a vehicle that illegally crossed the International Boundary and attempted to run him over.
Yesterday, at approximately 11:20 p.m., two vehicles crossed the boundary illegally in an attempt to smuggle narcotics into the United States. Intelligence gleaned by agents suggested that one vehicle was acting as a decoy, while the other was laden with the narcotics.
As the Excursion crossed the International Boundary, it became stuck in a ditch just north of the border. About 10 other smugglers that had been hiding in the brush nearby jumped out and were able to push the Excursion up onto the road. The driver of the Excursion then drove eastbound and then north on Plantation Road. A Border Patrol agent successfully deployed a controlled tire deflation device in front of the Excursion, deflating two of its tires. The driver then turned the vehicle around, and upon spotting the agent, drove off road into the brush and tried to run him over. The agent was unable to run out of harms way in the think brush and fired two rounds at the driver to stop him. The driver then veered off and absconded back into Mexico.
Two of the Dodge pick-up's tires were also successfully deflated with a controlled tire deflation device and became disabled on border road west of King's Highway. As agents approached the vehicle, the two occupants fled back into Mexico, leaving the truck behind. Agents determined that the pick-up was reported stolen out of Phoenix, Arizona. No contraband was discovered in the truck.
Tucson Sector Border Patrol Agents have been assaulted nearly 100 times this fiscal year to date, compared to 115 in all of fiscal year 2003. Although the number of assaults is similar to last year, the violent nature of the crimes is not. Frustrated smugglers have recently rammed marked Border Patrol vehicles, tried to run over agents, and have been regularly engaging agents in armed conflict.
The Border Patrol is a division of the U.S. Bureau of Customs and Border Protection, a new agency within the Department of Homeland Security, responsible for managing and securing our nation's borders.
And of course, the UN complains:
Border deportations concern UN
WASHINGTON A confidential report conducted by the United Nations in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security has found that airport inspectors with the power to summarily deport undocumented immigrants have handcuffed travelers fleeing persecution, discouraged some from seeking political asylum and often lacked an understanding of asylum law.
Homeland Security officials say they have responded to the problems identified in the report, which was completed late last year and obtained this week by The New York Times. But the study highlights the challenges facing the department as it grants border patrol agents sweeping powers to deport illegal immigrants from the borders with Mexico and Canada without providing them with the opportunity to make their cases before immigration judges.
