  • Border Patrol Training Videos Say to "Hide", "Run Away" in Active Shooter Situations

    The Center for Immigration Studies ^ | July 13, 2012 | Janice Kephart
    The National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 in Tucson, Ariz., is just a little angry. Local 2544, which is the largest Border Patrol union local with over 3,300 dues-paying members, tags itself as "the real border security experts". What are they angry about? Apparently, the current administration's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) senior officials have created what agents call "virtual brainwashing videos". Their website states that Border Patrol agents have been forced to take a virtual learning course on "active shooters" where the bottom line is that if they encounter an active shooter, as in Fort Hood, the Giffords shooting,...

    by John HillStand With Arizona The border is “safer than ever”. So says DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano. Again and again. Barack Obama has mocked those who say the border is unsafe: “Maybe they’ll need a moat. Maybe they’ll want alligators in the moat. They’ll never be satisfied.” But for Texans, the Rio Grande is wide open - thanks to Federal failure to secure it  - and is a growing threat to the safety of citizens and law enforcement, on land and water. In January we chronicled how ranchers in the Rio Grande Valley were stocking up on AK-47s to defend their property and lives...

    SAN ANTONIO—U.S. Border Patrol agents opened fire Saturday along the Rio Grande on the Texas-Mexico border after being pelted by rocks and having a gunman point a weapon in their direction on the Mexican side of the river, an agency spokesman said. Spokesman Henry Mendiola said no Border Patrol agents were injured in the incident Saturday near Brownsville. He did not know if anyone else was hurt. He said the Mexican government had been notified and was responding to the area. The FBI also was investigating. The Border Patrol released little details about the morning gunfire, including what the suspects...

"The resources available to us, such as radar and UAVs, have been multiplied several times over," said Brig. Gen. Pollack. "There is a lot of activity on the border, which has resulted in prevention of several attacks along with a reduction in the number of penetrations. Within a year not only will there be a fence – nothing will happen along the Sinai border without us knowing about it," he predicted. "This year, in...
  • Indiana sends Congress tab for illegal immigration

    07/01/2012 6:34:25 AM PDT · by Oldeconomybuyer · 19 replies
    Indiana's budget director calculates illegal immigrants have cost Indiana $130.9 million. Budget Director Adam Horst sent Congress a bill for the amount Friday as required under Indiana's illegal immigration law passed last year by the General Assembly. Congress is not expected to act on the request, however. Indiana's law was modeled on the 2010 Arizona illegal immigration bill whose key provisions were struck down by the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday. Horst estimated $110.6 million of the state's illegal immigrant costs have been for K-12 education. He estimated prison costs at $12.3 million and welfare costs at nearly $8 million.

    Border Patrol agents in Arizona are blasting their bosses for telling them, along with all other Department of Homeland Security employees, to run and hide if they encounter an "active shooter." It's one thing to tell civilian employees to cower under a desk if a gunman starts spraying fire in a confined area, say members of Tucson Local 2544/National Border Patrol Council, but to give armed law enforcement professionals the same advice is downright insulting. The instructions from DHS come in the form of pamphlets and a mandatory computer tutorial. “We are now taught in an ‘Active Shooter’ course that...

An anonymous call alerted police to the abandoned vehicles, and the bodies were taken to forensic services in Guadalajara, a police official said.

The proposal from Sen. Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) would surely extend the immigration debate and touch off a states’ rights fight with strong opinions on either side. Should the court uphold Arizona’s SB 1070, Schumer said his proposal would prohibit states from enacting or enforcing their own immigration law penalties unless they are working in concert with the federal government. “I believe it is simply too damaging to...

    The number of Mexican immigrants living illegally in the U.S. has dropped significantly for the first time in decades, showing a dramatic shift as many illegal workers are moving back to Mexico from the U.S. because there are so few job opportunities. The new analysis comes amid renewed debate over U.S. immigration policy as the Supreme Court hears arguments this week on Arizona's tough immigration law. Mexican immigrants make account for nearly 60 per cent of the illegal immigrant population in the U.S. and last year there were 6.1million in America. That number was down from its peak in 2007...

The $787-billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, the stimulus, was passed by Congress and signed into law in February 2009. From this near-trillion dollar trove, the administration allocated $10 million to the ATF’s “Project Gunrunner” to increase staff by 37 persons, according to a November 2010 Department of Justice Inspector General report.

    Reporting from Washington— Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer indicated Saturday that she's likely to endorse one of the Republican presidential candidates before her state's primary election on Tuesday. Speaking with reporters at the National Governors Assn. meeting in Washington, Brewer first said that she would definitely announce an endorsement before Tuesday, perhaps even as soon as Sunday. But then she hedged, saying, "If I get all my answers." "I'm pondering," she said. "It's always a difficult decision when you know all of them so well." Brewer said she spoke with each of the four major hopefuls before Wednesday's nationally-televised debate in...

    Deja Vu: Another "March to Jerusalem" aims at rallying one million people to march on Israel’s borders from surrounding countries. An attempt is being made by the BDS movement to have a ‘Global March to Jerusalem’ on March 30, to coincide with the so-called “Palestinian Land Day,” in a repeat of the failed Naqba Day attempt last year. “The concept behind it is to have a million people marching on Israel’s borders from all the surrounding countries – Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt,” CiF Watch reported. The BDS movement declares, “Commemorating Land Day, the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC) invites...

    In an interview with Univision Radio, President Obama said that he has 'five years' left in his presidency to figure out issues like comprehensive immigration reform. Striking a confident note about his reelection prospects, Obama assured a largely Hispanic audience that he has not given up on getting an immigration bill done — one that would provide a pathway to citizenship. "My presidency is not over," Obama told Univision's Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo "I’ve got another five years coming up. We’re going to get this done." Obama also said that Hispanic voters would ultimately face an easy choice in deciding between...

    by John HillStand With Arizona Well the gloves are finally off, and the Death Star of the illegal alien amnesty movement is coming after America's most potent symbol against illegal immigration: Sheriff Joe Arpaio. National Council of La Raza President Janet Murguia, in a press conference in Phoenix, called the Maricopa County lawman "America's worst sheriff" and called on Arpaio to resign from office, claiming "discrimination against Latinos". This marks the first time that La Raza has come against Sheriff Arpaio directly. After the passage of S.B. 1070, NCLR and the SEIU paid to bus in protesters from Los Angeles...

    FREMONT, Neb. — A Nebraska city's attempt to fight illegal immigration with a newly court-approved ordinance appears likely to be more of an inconvenience for legal residents than a deterrent to illegal immigrants. Backers of Fremont's voter-approved measure say they're still glad a federal judge signed off on most of the ordinance's provisions Monday because it represents at least some progress. The judge said Fremont can require companies to use the free federal E-Verify system to verify the citizenship status of people they hire. It can also require potential renters to swear they are legal residents and pay $5 to...

    by John HillStand With Arizona Illegal aliens are increasingly battling police to avoid capture. Last week in Phoenix, 2 illegals fought with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's detectives after a traffic stop, to try and enable 10 additional illegals to escape into the desert. Last night near Premont, TX, one or more of a group of 15 illegal aliens in a van shot at a Texas DPS Trooper when the officer tried to stop their vehicle in a routine traffic stop on Highway 281, according to the Jim Wells County Sheriff's Office. After a short chase, the pursuit ended south...

    McALLEN — Another reminder of why we need a secure border emerged this week, as U.S. Border Patrol officials confirmed three Afghan nationals were detained in the Rio Grande Valley - an increasing "hot zone" of cartel invasion and violence against American ranchers. Border Patrol confirmed the detentions, but would not say where or when they occurred. Enrique Mendiola, assistant chief Border Patrol agent for the Rio Grande Valley sector, said that human smugglers see moving people besides Mexican nationals as a "business opportunity." "Average smuggling rates for other-than-Mexican nationals far exceed those of Mexicans and Central and South Americans,"...

    Just about a week ago, we were given a video exposing a major breach on the U.S./Mexico border near Lukeville, Ariz. located about 100 miles southwest of Tucson. We checked its authenticity with our sources at the Department of Homeland Security who have confirmed that the video is real and was taken recently. Watch this distressing video that was first posted by Cochise County Sheriff Larry Dever and see how, despite claims by the Administration, the border is far from secure.
