    Video only at Source. (6 min) from Fox News- Mornings with Maria. Rick Sanchez argues with Republican Strategist Boris Epshteyn on the fallout (RIOT) following Donald Trump's Costa Mesa Rally last night. Contributor Dagen McDowell and the others condemn the rioter's violence, unequivocally. Sanchez twists Trump's words on immigration in a lame defense of La Raza instilled mob violence. (surprise-Not.) The news team believes that the out-of-control latino rioters will inspire even more Trump support.

    A reflective Jeb Bush said he had no regrets Thursday about his failed presidential bid, saying in his first interview since leaving the race that Donald Trump could still lose the nomination fight. "There's a possibility that he won't get 50% on the first ballot," Bush told CNN's Jamie Gangel, giving his first television interview exclusively to CNN after dropping out of the presidential race in February. "And if he doesn't do that, there are a whole lot of people who don't believe he's the proper guy."

    When federal officials talk about a flood of heroin entering the country, they are not exaggerating. In recent years the amount of heroin produced in Mexico has more than doubled – from less than 60 tons to more than 140 tons last year. It’s cheap. It’s plentiful. And all of it is destined for buyers in the United States.

    Since he announced his run for the White House, billionaire businessman Donald Trump has made the southern border one of his key issues. He's made no apologies for his remarks about drug dealers and rapists making their way to America via the porous border. His promise to build a wall has also been wildly popular among his supporters. Like many involved American politics, Mexico has finally come to terms with the idea that Trump and his ideas are not going away just yet. Those concepts have taken their toll on Mexico and its image, and it has decided it's time...

    TEL AVIV – The U.S. is cosponsoring an Israeli-invented tunnel detection system that could prevent drug smugglers and illegal migrants from cross-border passage with Mexico, ISRAEL21c reported. The technology, which is being heralded as the underground Iron Dome anti-missile defense system, was behind the IDF’s recent discovery of a 1.5 mile-long Hamas terror tunnel from Gaza and into Israeli territory. The U.S. has earmarked $120 million over the next three years to help develop the system, the Financial Times reported. Meanwhile, other anti-infiltration innovations include a counter-tunnel barrier along the Israel-Gaza border that “will also feature a state-of-the-art fence, complete...

Several of the transnational criminal organizations (cartels) operating in Central America and Mexico make an estimated one-third or more of their profits from illegal immigration. Specifically, two groups below Texas, the Gulf and Los Zetas cartels, are largely fueled by the trafficking and smuggling of human beings.

The tunnel was equipped with a rail system, lighting, a ventilation system, and even a commercial elevator on the Mexico-side that could fit up to ten people, authorities said.

    n a worse case scenario for Mexico’s government, which will never go for such a policy, a Trump government that bans remittances from undocumented people could trip up remittances from immigrants that are here legally, making their families back home collateral damage in Trump’s fight against foreigners without visas. How Trump tracks down those payments is unknown. But what is known is that those payments are the rise. The AP reported remittance payments to Mexico rising nearly 5% in 2015, an all-time high and more than oil firm Pemex’s contribution to state revenue. Amazing…

At 2:32 local time on Tuesday morning, the most dangerous volcano in Mexico roared to life in spectacular fashion, and this has many experts extremely concerned about what is coming next. Popocatepetl is an Aztec word that means “smoking mountain”, and historians tell us that once upon a time entire Aztec cities were buried in super-heated mud from this volcano. In fact, the super-heated mud flows were so deep that they buried entire Aztec pyramids. A full-blown eruption of Mt. Popocatepetl would...

    As I explained in my 2014 book Faithless Execution, the president takes two legally untenable positions on illegal immigration: (a) That the doctrine of prosecutorial discretion empowers him to choose which laws he will enforce, and (b) That if he chooses not to enforce laws in an area, like immigration, where the courts say federal law preempts state law, then state enforcement of congressional law is preempted by this executive branch non-enforcement policy. Obama’s first position is perverse. A president’s chief constitutional duty is to see that the laws are faithfully executed. “Prosecutorial discretion” is just a resource-allocation doctrine specific...

On March 29, Mexico concluded its first long-term power auction since more fully deregulating its electricity sector in 2013. The auction, it should be noted, was a smashing success, generating 227 bids from 69 tenderers.

The Mexican government set up a large number of surveillance cameras throughout the border city of Reynosa last year in what they called a new attempt to curb the activities of organized crime. By then, the Gulf Cartel had their surveillance network in place for years. Through the use of strategically placed cartel...

    Just moments before Attorney General Eric Holder was voted in contempt of Congress by Republicans and Democrats in June 2012 , President Obama asserted executive privilege over thousands of documents related to Operation Fast and Furious. Holder was held in contempt for stonewalling and failing to turn over the documents to the House Oversight Committee. Obama granted the executive privilege request despite claiming to have no knowledge about Operation Fast and Furious when it was active from 2009-2010. Now after years of court battles and a federal judge striking down the executive privilege assertion, Obama has finally agreed turned them...

    On Tuesday Donald Trump announced he would force Mexico to pay for a border wall by threatening to cut off billions of dollars in remittances sent by immigrants living in the United States. Later that day Barack Obama took time to scold Donald Trump on his plan to cut off remittances to Mexico until they fork over the funds to pay for a border wall. Of course, Barack Obama is wrong about this, too. The US already cuts off remittance payments to Somalia. "Following the Sept. 11 terror attacks, Congress passed stricter money-laundering regulations, which caused several large U.S. banks...

    The London Daily Mail ^ | April 7, 2016 | Alexandra Klausner and Reuters
    Mexico's government on Tuesday unexpectedly changed two of its top officials responsible for U.S. relations, citing concerns about an increasingly anti-Mexican climate across the border. Carlos Sada, previously the consul in Los Angeles, was named ambassador to the United States while Paulo Carreno, one of President Enrique Pena Nieto's communications chiefs, was appointed the deputy foreign minister for North America. Sada replaces Miguel Basanez Ebergeny who has only been in his position for seven months. Sada has 'broad experience in consular work and in the protection of the rights of Mexicans in North America,' the Mexican Foreign Ministry said in...

    Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz often tells supporters about his Supreme Court win against the federal government in 2008, defending Texas' right to execute a Mexican man for murder, as evidence of his conservative and anti-establishment credentials. But there is one part of the story that goes untold. The Medellin v. Texas case, decided when Cruz was the state's solicitor general, set the stage for years of diplomatic tension between the United States and its southern neighbor.

    Mexico’s fourth largest political party, the Nueva Alianza party, is running a new television ad demanding respect from Donald Trump – by calling him a faggot according to Blabbeando writer Andrés Duque. In the spot, a young man addresses the camera to express frustration with anti-Mexican comments from the American presidential candidate. The man dedicates a common homophobic soccer chant to Trump as the camera pans out to a crowd of people in bleachers who all shout, “Heeeeey puto!” The phrase is commonly translated as “Hey faggot!”

    Green Car Reports ^ | 04/07/2016 | John Voelcker
    Two years ago, Ford successfully fought efforts by Tesla Motors to register the name "Model E" for what we now know as the Tesla Model 3, unveiled last week to great fanfare. Now it appears that the Detroit automaker may plan to use that name itself on a dedicated vehicle coming in 2019 that will be offered as a hybrid, a battery-electric car, and a plug-in hybrid. If that lineup sounds slightly familiar, it should: it's the same suite of versions that will be offered in the 2017 Hyundai Ioniq. Adding battery-electric versions of dedicated green vehicles seems to be...

    Washington Post ^ | 04/07/2016 | By Joshua Partlow
    MEXICO CITY — The rise of Donald Trump and the anti-immigrant wave he is riding in his presidential primary campaign have alarmed the Mexican government so much that it has reshuffled top diplomats and, according to officials, adopted a new strategy — to defend the image of Mexicans abroad. Trump has consistently targeted the United States’ southern neighbor, calling Mexican border-crossers “rapists” and criminals and threatening to cut off the money they send home to their families unless Mexico pays for a border wall. But for months, the Mexican government has opted to remain quiet, with a few high-profile exceptions,...

    A former Mexican president and previous critic of Donald Trump heaped new criticisms against the Republican presidential candidate late Wednesday. Vicente Fox Quesada tweeted out a string of attacks against the GOP front-runner, bashing Trump's immigration stances and calling him a "looser." "Trump is a looser, in business and in campaigning. He will never make it. He only is increasing hate ,violence. How can people stand him?" Quesada wrote. The former Mexican leader bashed Trump's plans to build a wall on the southern border, claiming the U.S. would not "survive enclosed in 4 walls."
  • U.S. Govt. Banking Program Facilitates Remittances to Mexico

    04/06/2016 3:08:25 PM PDT · by markomalley · 14 replies
    Amid the discord ignited by Donald Trump’s idea to block money transfers to Mexico until it funds a wall it’s important to note that a U.S. government program is largely responsible for the billions in remittances flowing south of the border from illegal immigrants. The program is called “Directo a Mexico” (Direct to Mexico) and the Federal Reserve, the government agency that serves as the nation’s central bank, launched it nearly a decade ago. Judicial Watch investigated the outrageous taxpayer-subsidized initiative and obtained government records back in 2006. It was created by President George W. Bush following the 2001 U.S.-Mexico...
  • What If Mexico Really Does Pay for Trump’s Wall?

    The Atlantic ^ | April 5, 2016 | Uri Friedman
    The Republican front-runner has released new details on his plan. Here’s an attempt to take it, and his foreign policy, seriously. Maybe it’s because Donald Trump’s proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexican border has more than doubled in height over the course of his presidential campaign, theoretically soaring past the Berlin Wall and Great Wall of China. Maybe it’s because Mexico’s former president said he wouldn’t pay for “that (expletive) wall.” Maybe it’s because the idea has been reduced to a call-and-response mantra at rallies. Whatever the explanation, Trump’s critics tend to dismiss his pledge to make Mexico “pay for the...
