The second case of measles has been confirmed on Wednesday, March 20 in the San Antonio area according to the Metropolitan Health District. However, the local new media is following the example of the national media, and they are cautious about how and what they report.
The new case of measles in San Antonio is related to another one confirmed earlier this month that was tied to a “visitor” from the Philippines in Guadalupe County. However, the news media is being careful not to link foreign visitors or illegal aliens to the disease outbreaks such as mumps and chicken pox at ICE detention centers.
Few news reports have connected immigration (legal and illegal) and foreign visitors to disease outbreaks, or widely reported the cases at ICE detention centers. It appears the news media are more concerned with being politically correct than with writing complete reports.
The Border Patrol is being overwhelmed by a record number of Central American families and minors who are turning themselves in on their own and asking for asylum in the El Paso sector, which includes all of New Mexico, according to a news report in the March 17, Albuquerque Journal. A big “loophole” in the immigration system allows illegal aliens to be detained and then released, has thousands of illegal aliens using asylum claims to enter and stay in the U.S.
This legal loophole must be closed if the Border Wall is to be effective because under the current system illegal aliens are entering and claiming asylum at established entry points. These illegal alien asylum seekers are then detained, but because detention centers are overcrowded, they are released with a court appearance date and the majority never appear in court and disappear into American society.
Democrats and the liberal press call the surge in asylum seekers arriving on the border a “humanitarian crisis,” but it is a problem caused by legal loopholes and proper border security. The current immigration system is encouraging people to cross illegally, then rewarding with an indefinite stay in the U.S.
On Wednesday, March 6, Judge Richard Seeborg, who was appointed to the United States District Court for the Northern District of California by Pres. Obama became the second federal judge to blocked a citizenship question from appearing on the 2020 census. This is yet another liberal activist judge ruling in favor of illegal aliens over citizens.
Democrats and liberals claim the census question will cause illegal aliens and Latinos not to respond due to fear, and thereby impact on mostly Democratic and minority communities. Many of the communities that would be affected are sanctuary communities that protect illegal aliens.
On Saturday, March 9, 2019, two Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents were assaulted by illegal aliens from Honduras. The assault occurred while Border Patrol agents attempted to take the subject into custody.
One agent was seriously injured during the assault and is currently recovering at the hospital. Another agent suffered minor injuries during the incident.
Representatives from the National Border Patrol Council are currently assisting all agents involved in this incident, and the case has been referred to the FBI for further investigation.
This attack is the third incident of violence against Border Patrol agents in the past three weeks. In late February, Border Patrol agents were shot at from the Mexican side in Laredo, and another agent was shot at while in his vehicle El Paso.
The illegal aliens have become more emboldened thanks to the liberals and Democrats that excuse and reward them. This has made the border more dangerous for the men and women who protect it and the residents of the area.
Pray for our Border Patrol agents and our nation. We must protect our border, our citizens and our agents.
A 45-year-old illegal alien from Mexico died in Border Patrol custody Monday, Feb. 18, 2019, after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border into Texas. He is the third illegal alien to die in the Border Patrol/ICE custody since December 2018, and the Democrats and liberal media are creaming for their brand “justice.” They want ICE and the Border Patrol abolished or severely controlled, and the border opened. The facts are that this illegal alien was provided taxpayer-funded medical assistance at the Mission Regional Medical Center one day and at McAllen Medical Center the next. He was diagnosed with diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver and congestive heart failure, which has nothing to do with immigration law enforcement. The illegal alien died while at the hospital on Monday morning. Of course, Democrats in the House of Representatives have vowed to investigate housing conditions for migrants along the border. American taxpayers and citizens should NOT assume the responsibility for people who enter our country illegally, and illegal aliens should not demand anything of a nation where they have trespassed. Furthermore, illegal aliens assume their own risks when they break the law to enter the country illegally. Illegal immigration is illegal, and it should not be excused or rewarded.
