Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced on Wednesday, Oct. 28, a five-day operation that caught over 100 illegal aliens, with more than 70% of them having criminal convictions and charges. The operation focused on those illegal aliens who pose “a significant threat to public safety” in those communities.
ICE officers in various areas across the country identified, located, and arrested criminal illegal aliens whose continued presence posed a significant threat to public safety. Operation Granite took place between Oct. 19 to 23 in Minnesota, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, and Texas and brought in more than 100 illegal aliens to be processed to be removed from the country.
Healthcare and COVID-19 have become the central theme for Democrats in the 2020 presidential election’s closing days, especially as they try to capture the Hispanic/Latino vote. However, the liberal Mainstream Media continues to ignore an essential part of stories, which would hurt their political agenda.
For example, in El Paso County across from Juarez, Mexico, hospitals are overwhelmed with a wave of new Covid-19 cases, which have increased 300 percent in just the past three weeks. How did this surge of COVID-19 happen?
A video obtained from law enforcement officials in Texas shows what appears to be a heavily armed Mexican cartel conducting a human smuggling operation. Officials indicated the smuggler’s drop off point was near Hebbronville, Texas, about 80 miles from Mexico's border.
The first thing you notice from the video is the barrel of a rifle with after-market equipment, including a quad rail, high capacity drum magazine, scope, and a fore-grip held by the passenger. The passenger also appears to be videotaping the smuggling operation. However, this development places all law enforcement and citizens in greater danger.
In the meantime, there are Democrats and leftist community leaders who want to defund the local police, abolish immigration law enforcement, and stop the border wall from being built.
Law enforcement told Breitbart they are extremely concerned about this incident. They could not recall when human smugglers used such heavy weapons and tactics to smuggle people, especially so far north of the border. This is a clear escalation in tactics used by smuggling organizations inside the United States. Officials said they expect other incidents to follow.
An illegal alien from El Salvador was in custody Tuesday after one Houston police officer was shot and killed and another wounded at a southwest Houston apartment complex. The slain officer was identified as Sgt. Harold Preston, a 41-year veteran of the force.
Elmer Rolando Manzano-Martinez, 51, has been identified by ICE officials as a "convicted criminal alien who is unlawfully present in the U.S." Police confirmed that Manzano-Martinez has a long criminal history, including a charged of evading police in 2002.
This is another example of why local liberal politicians endanger citizens and police by protecting illegal aliens. Sanctuary communities also release illegal alien criminals from local jails to “protect them” from COVID-19. What about protecting citizens?
Police constantly place their lives in danger, especially because domestic violence calls are the most dangerous police officers' calls. Politicians should not add to the danger by protecting illegal aliens.
Immigration & Customs Enforcement agents arrested an illegal alien at a church in Silver Springs, MD, and the Washington Post (reporter Meagan Flynn) describes it in emotional terms. They condemn ICE for enforcing the law and portray the illegal alien as a victim. The news media seems to regularly lift criminals but criticize law enforcement for doing their job.
In this case, Binsar Siahaan, an illegal alien from Indonesia, has lived in the U.S. for several years. He and his family reside on the grounds of Glenmont United Methodist Church in Silver Spring, where he serves as its caretaker.
Liberals are shocked and angry that ICE arrested Siahaan at his home on the grounds of the church. The family and their attorney claim ICE agents “coaxed” him out of the house and arrested him.
Siahaan was detained in February by ICE and released on an ankle monitor while legal appeals were pending. According to his attorney, the agents said he just had to come with them to make sure the GPS monitor was working but has been transported to Lumpkin, GA, to await deportation.
Whether it’s local police or ICE agents, the news media seem to lift the criminal as the victim and law enforcement as the bully. Is there little wonder that there is profound disrespect toward law enforcement in today’s society?
Criminals will always view themselves as victims of the law, and the news media should not excuse and justify them. What part of the word ILLEGAL don’t news reporters understand?
