The 54 illegal aliens found in a trailer in San Antonio last night, are being treated as "victims" by the local liberal Media, pro-open borders activists, and the Democrats. These people paid about $8000 each to be smuggled into the United States illegally and endanger their lives along with some children. They were not kidnapped or forced to come to America as slaves. The media here and in their homelands, and along with politicians, should discourage people from coming to the U.S. illegally because that would help put the smugglers out of business.
In the meantime, the City of San Antonio is providing legal counseling to these illegal aliens at taxpayers' expense. Isn't that a violation of SB-4? Should taxpayers provide legal counsel to people who broke federal laws to enter the country, and who paid smugglers? The Texas Attorney General should look into this matter.

The Democrats and the liberal Media, particularly the Spanish-speaking media like Univision and Telemundo, will soon have another emotional meltdown as the U.S studies and considers Israel's border fence with Egypt as a model for the U.S./Mexico border. On Tuesday June 12, U.S. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen visited and inspected Israel's fenced-off border with Egypt for ideas regarding the U.S./Mexico wall.
The U.S. needs a 2,000 mile wall or barrier to stem, or hopefully stop, illegal aliens entering from Mexico. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu angered Mexico last year by publicly backing Trump's call for a secured border and pointing to the towering, sensor-rigged Egyptian border fence as a possible model.
Mexico, who has often sided with Muslim nations in the U.N. against Israel, undoubtedly will see this as one more reason for the Mexican government to harbor ill will against Israel. Also, many Chicano nationalists in America view the southwestern United States as “occupied lands” in similar terms as Palestinians and Muslim nations view Israeli land.
Acting chief of ICE for Pres. Trump said today, Tuesday, May 6, that passing a “clean” Dream Act (DACA) to legalize “Dreamers” will spur a new wave of illegal immigration and create a new population that will need an amnesty 10 or 20 years in the future. Some people don’t seem to understand the if you excuse and reward and illegal immigration, you get more.
We had a “one-time amnesty” in 1986 for 3 million illegal aliens. Now we are talking about amnesty for Dreamers, and special treatment for their families so they aren’t separated. All the while, more illegal alien minors are arriving daily to claim special treatment.
We cannot excuse and reward any illegal immigration including children, and we cannot turn our nation into the world’s orphanage for unaccompanied illegal alien minors.
The Murder Case of Border Patrol Agent Vega - Fox News reports, an illegal alien from Mexico who has previously been arrested and deported multiple times for entering the U.S. illegally, was found guilty of the 2014 murder of Border Patrol agent Javier Vega Jr. in Texas. Vega Jr. was gunned down in front of his family on while they fished on their day off.
Gustavo Tijerina-Sandoval and his accomplice, Ismael Hernandez-Vallejo, attempted to rob Vega Jr. to pay off a debt. According to court testimony and police statements Tijerina-Sandoval tried justified the robbery by claiming he was being threaten by someone over an unpaid loan. Making excuses to justify illegal behavior seems to be a recurring theme among Leftists.
It is also interesting how silent the Obama Administration and former Attorney General were over Vega’s murder versus their immediate reactions to shootings in Ferguson, MO and Baltimore, MD. Obama did not seem to support law enforcement at the border or in the communities. Just as the number of police officers has risen dramatically the past 8 years, so have attacks on and deaths of Border Patrol agents.
Murder accomplice Ismael Hernandez-Vallejo has yet to go to trial for the same charges. Tijerina-Sandoval could receive the death penalty in the sentencing phase for his trial, which is set to begin Thursday afternoon.
