    La Joya (KNVO) — It was a terrifying situation in a Texas border town as authorities exchanged gunfire with a murder suspect. Border patrol agents were under fire as they tried to arrest a man in La Joya, on the Rio Grande River near the Gulf of Mexico. Two law enforcement officers were shot, but both are expected to recover. Authorities said the man was wanted for a murder in Edinburg. He was also believed to be a member of the notorious "Texas Syndicate" prison gang. The gunman had barricaded himself in an apartment and fired at sheriff's deputies and...

    The Transportation Security Administration is strongly denying accusations that it has been allowing illegal immigrants to board American jetliners without proper identification. The National Border Patrol Council, a union representing thousands of Border Patrol agents, accused the TSA of letting illegals board airplanes with a “Notice to Appear” document instead of a passport or official government identification card. Union leaders said illegals were allowed to board jetliners without proper identification at airports in El Paso and Laredo, Texas. The story was first reported by Breitbart News. “This is the dream of every terrorist in the world,” Shawn Moran, vice president...

    Over last weekend, it finally got out – despite suppression from the White House and the media – that the Mexican drug cartels/human traffickers are now firing .50 caliber ammo at our USBP Agents. These are bullets that can reach their targets as much as a mile away. This is an act of war. Yet, neither the Pretend POTUS and Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama nor any of his minions comment on it at all. Neither does Obama try to stop the thousands of illegals (largely gang members, drug cartels/human traffickers and Islamists...not children) that he has invited into the country...

The weapons were fired at the U.S. side of the riverbank in the area of the Rincon Peninsula across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, Mexico, at about 8:30 p.m., sources said.

    The situation at America’s southern border is a “manufactured crisis,” one perpetuated—if not started—by the Obama administration. After all, the administration put out an ad in January 2014 asking for contractors to handle an influx of 65,000 children. “The surge to 60,000 or so children seen this year was said to catch many off guard, especially since just 6,500 children entered the U.S. as early as 2011,” reported Pete Kasperowicz for The Blaze. “But [Republican Representative Jeff] Sessions [R-AL] said the advertisement showed that the administration knew the surge would happen.” And in reality, the 60,000 children represent only about...

The children are particularly attracted to Sam's beautiful pool -- and, on those rare occasions when Sam is actually in his backyard, he frequently finds himself shooing these children away.

The recommendations, to come from a working group established by House Speaker John Boehner, will set up a clash with leading Democrats who oppose changing U.S. law to eliminate automatic immigration hearings for Central American kids and return them more quickly to Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, where some areas are overrun by brutal gangs.

    The number of foreigners who successfully filed asylum claims in the United States almost tripled from 2012 to 2013, up to 30,393. That’s 10 times the number from 2008, when President Barack Obama was elected, and it is evidence his immigration officials are approving most of the asylum requests from the growing wave of Central American migrants. If you came illegally to the U.S. seeking asylum in 2013, you had better than a four-in-five chance of successfully filing an asylum claim. That’s up from a three-in-five chance in 2008. The migrants include mothers with children, and youths who have been...

Texas Gov.

Now he wants billions to cope with the flood of illegals crossing that very border. According to various news accounts, the number of illegals coming across the border has surged to 35,000 month. In just the past few months, more than 50,000 unaccompanied children crossed over, creating a huge humanitarian crisis. How can this possibly be happening? After all, didn't Obama tell us when he ran for re-election that the border with Mexico was secure? As a matter of fact, he did. Many times. In...

Obama is like an arsonist who sets fires to help rescue people from burning buildings. He's asked Congress for $2 billion to deal with a child refugee crisis of his own making, money that could have gone to seal the border instead of having Border Patrol agents acting as glorified baby-sitters by cooking, cleaning and even doing laundry.

    MISSION, TEXAS (KRLD) – A day after Texas state leaders approved a border security surge, news comes out of Mission, Texas that close to 300 women and children have been caught trying to cross illegally into the U.S. “I talked to a Border Patrol agent yesterday and he told me that in one group — not several groups — but in one group, 280 mothers and children were caught; they turned themselves in,” says Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-Laredo). “That shows you the magnitude of what’s happening down there.” He says the word is out that sanctuary can be found in...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)U.S. Border Patrol agents have been spending their own money on diapers, toys, clothes, and treats for the thousands of children and other minors who have illegally crossed into the U.S. in hopes of staying in the country, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). Shawn Moran, Vice President of the NBPC, spoke with Breitbart Texas and said, “FEMA is finally coming on line and conditions are getting better for many locations, but there are still many stations that are overwhelmed with processing duties and without the resources needed for these kids.” Many Border Patrol agents, frustrated with the...

    MISSION, Texas – At daybreak in this border town, two women from Guatemala – one with a small child strapped to her back – wait patiently on the levee overlooking the Rio Grande. They have been instructed by the "coyote" who ferried them across the river for an exorbitant fee – as much as $1,000 – to simply wait for the Border Patrol to pick them up. After processing, they will likely be given a notice to appear before an immigration judge and a bus ticket to wherever in America they may have friends or relatives. That’s the way it...

    HOUSTON, Texas—A surge of thousands of illegal immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border has left federal resources and facilities overwhelmed. Most of the new migrants are children from Central America. In the aftermath of Breitbart Texas releasing photos showing minors warehoused in crowded U.S. cells, Border Patrol agents in Texas have been instructed not to speak to media outlets. The Associated Press (AP) obtained an email from Eligio "Lee" Pena, an assistant patrol agent, that ordered more than 3,000 agents to not speak to reporters about the "humanitarian crisis." The email allegedly said that reporters are likely to press for details...

    Gil Kerlikowske, commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said Friday that many of the illegal immigrant children his agents are encountering trying to slip across the U.S.-Mexico border have never even seen a doctor before. He described scenes of Border Patrol agents changing diapers and heating baby formula in order to care for some of the youngest children, and said agents are being asked to do things way beyond their skill set — particularly for so many of the agents who are young, single men. “I’ve been down there, a lot, and spent a lot of time and I’ve...

    A draft memo from a top Border Patrol official expresses alarm that the administration's handling of the border surge in south Texas is inviting more illegal crossings and overwhelming the DHS agencies. The memo calls for the administration to stop releasing illegal crossers into the United States and instead impose harsher "consequences" on illegal crossers. [DHS Logo] The document, attributed to Ronald D. Vitiello, deputy chief of the Border Patrol, includes revised estimates from the DHS statistics office on the size of the surge of unaccompanied minors. At the end of May, DHS projected that in FY 2014, the Border...
