During the last presidential election, illegal aliens voting was a huge controversy. President Trump stated it was a real problem and millions of Americans agreed with him, including me. The biggest reason for throwing the borders wide open in my opinion is so the Democrats can pad their voter base.
Which brings me to Texas this morning. A judge there has just sentenced a Mexican citizen named Laura Janeth Garza, 38, to ten years in prison for illegally voting in the 2016 presidential election. Looks like the cold hand of justice just dropped down on her… hard. She pleaded guilty to voter impersonation and ineligible voting. Both of those crimes in Texas are second-degree felonies.
But, wait… there’s more. Garza has also won a $10,000 fine and she will be deported back to Mexico. Good freaking riddance. I’m just sad she wasn’t caught and convicted earlier.

From The Daily Caller:
“A state investigation revealed that Garza obtained her U.S. citizen documentation by theft. She assumed the identity of someone who had registered to vote in Harris County, Texas. According to investigators, Garza was known as “Angie Yadira Zamora” when she voted in the 2004, 2012 and 2016 elections.
“The deception ended when a real U.S. citizen applied for a passport, only to be told that someone with that name and address had already secured one, Texas Attorney General told the Houston Chronicle.
“Election integrity is a top priority for my office, and arrestees and convictions like this clearly demonstrate our commitment to ensuring that Texas elections remain free and fair,” said Paxton.
“The case will undoubtedly strengthen Republican Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s legislation to enact even stiffer consequences for voter fraud.”
Gee, I seem to remember the left calling Trump supporters conspiracy theorists over voter fraud. Now, I just hear crickets. Trump was right again and now it’s being proven in court. The question is how many illegal aliens got away with voting in the 2016 presidential election?
I still believe that there are all kinds of voter fraud going on across the country and illegal aliens unlawfully voting is only part of it. Voter fraud was a huge problem in Nevada just before I left and I wager it has only gotten worse since then.
Election fraud has increasingly become a hot topic among Republicans in Texas who have called attention to cases like Garza’s to prove their point that there is more voting fraud going on than many acknowledge. Last year, Gov. Greg Abbott signed into law a bill to increase penalties for absentee ballot fraud. Good for him. I really love Gov. Greg Abbott… he has a conservative spine a mile long.
“Anyone attempting to deprive the people of Texas of their voice in either state or federal elections will be brought to justice and penalized by the full extent of the law,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. Ditto my love for Paxton and well… just Texans in general.
Breitbart Texas reported on this:
“A joint investigation conducted by the Texas AG’s office and the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) determined that Garza obtained documents to steal the identity of a U.S. citizen and illegally register to vote in Harris County, according to a press release from Paxton.
“The two state agencies continue to work together on the case. Information about this matter came to light when a female American citizen attempted to obtain a U.S. passport. However, she learned that Garza had already done so using this woman’s identity. As a result, the U.S. State Department referred Garza’s case to the Criminal Investigations Division of DPS, which, subsequently, handed it over to the Office of the Attorney General for an election fraud investigation.”

After Paxton announced Garza’s voter fraud conviction, the Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF), a national election integrity law firm, commended the Texas AG for prosecuting this case. “Well done,” the watchdog group tweeted. The PILF also added: “Texas can and should invest more resources into probing and prosecuting fraud.”
The PILF filed a lawsuit earlier this year against Harris County for allegedly failing to disclose noncitizen voter records as required by the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) of 1993, also known as the “Motor Voter” law.
At that time, Paxton urged a state judge in a separate lawsuit to facilitate the PILF’s request after Harris County sued over a ruling that noncitizen records should not be disclosed under the Texas Public Information Act, contrary to the Attorney General’s published opinion on the matter.
Paxton’s office also tried a Mexican national, Rosa Maria Ortega, 38, last year for voting illegally for over a decade in Texas elections. She lied and claimed she was a U.S. citizen and then voted as a Republican at least five times in Dallas County. That included 2012 and 2014. So there is voter fraud on both sides here.
Ortega claimed she thought she was an American citizen despite her legal permanent residency and was therefore ineligible to vote. A judge didn’t buy that and she was sentenced to eight years in prison.
This is yet another reason we need the wall and serious vetting of those who come here. Voting is a sacrosanct right of U.S. citizens and as the most powerful nation on earth, we should be able to get our act together and run clean, legitimate elections. Start by doing background checks and vetting on voting monitors and have others watch them as well.

CBP said no agents were injured.
According to the agency, there have been approximately 125 assaults on agents in the San Diego area since October of 2018.
It is becoming more and more dangerous for our agents.
Met with border agents, in disgust they told me and Kris Kobach that they are releasing cartel hitmen onto the streets of the US because they bring a child with them and claim asylum! They even admit to being hitmen. EXPOSE THIS! @DonaldJTrumpJr @SheriffClarke @realDonaldTrump

A few days ago, Breitbart News reported a Border Patrol Agent was Assaulted in Arizona Mountains
An Ecuadorian migrant assaulted a Border Patrol agent on a mountain trail about 15 miles north of the Arizona border with Mexico. The Ecuadorian migrant was traveling with two Mexican migrants.
Agents assigned to the Sonoita Border Patrol Station responded to a reported group of migrants hiking on a remote trail near Lone Mountain close to Patagonia, Arizona. As the agents attempted to take the migrants into custody, one of the migrants began fighting with one of the agents, according to information obtained from Tucson Sector Border Patrol officials.
The migrant struck the agent multiple times. He fought with the agent for several minutes causing both to slide down the hillside, officials reported. Several minutes later, additional agents responded and subdued the migrant. The additional agents handcuffed the migrant and placed him under arrest.
The agents identified the suspect as an Ecuadorian migrant who had no legal authorization to be in the United States.
Agents checked the migrant and the assaulted agent for injuries. Both declined additional medical attention.
Other agents apprehended the two Mexican migrants.
Border Patrol officials reported that the Ecuadorian migrant is now facing charges of assaulting a federal agent and immigration violations.
The two Mexican nationals will also face charges for immigration violations. All three are being held in federal custody pending the outcome of their charges.
“Assaults highlight safety concerns for agents who often encounter and arrest multiple subjects in remote and isolated locations in rugged terrain,” Tucson Sector Border Patrol officials stated. Continue Reading
It’s time lethal force is used at the border..that would stop this insanity fast. Our agents are being attacked and enough is enough! If this was anywhere else.. the person would be done.

REPORT: Central American Migrants Paid Human Smugglers $2.3 Billion In 2017
This story originally appeared on WeBuildTheWall.news & was republished with permission:
On Monday, A RAND Corporation report was released and it reveals that Central American migrants paid human smugglers more than $2 billion in 2017 to get them into the United States.
RAND Corporation’s Homeland Security Operational Analysis Center reveals Central American migrants paid human smugglers, including transnational criminal organizations (TCOs) up to about $2.5 billion in smuggling fees and “taxes” in 2017.
During Fiscal Year 2017, Border Patrol agents apprehended migrants crossing the border in near-record low levels. Agents apprehended only 303,916 migrants during that fiscal year, including 75,622 Family Unit Aliens (FMUA) and 41,435 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC), according to the FY2017 Southwest Border Migration Report from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
During the first six months of the current fiscal year, agents already exceeded the total FY2017 apprehensions with the arrest of 361,087 migrants. Those include a record-setting 189,584 FMUAs and an additional 35,898 UACs.
“Cartels + criminal organizations run a profit-driven enterprise trafficking human beings across our border,” U.S. Representative Chip Roy (R-TX) tweeted in response to the RAND report.
Cartels + criminal organizations run a profit-driven enterprise trafficking human beings across our border. Today, a new report came out estimating that Central American migrants paid human traffickers upwards of $2.3 billion in 2017. https://t.co/C5HmARH317

Congressmen Roy is leading the charge to have certain factions of Mexican cartels designated as Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTO) by the U.S. State Department in order to allow law enforcement to employ additional tools to combat human smuggling and trafficking, Breitbart News reported in February.
“We know that the dangerous fentanyl and heroin that is flowing through our border between the ports of entry and at the ports of entry as well as the people who are being put in stash houses, being held hostage, paying ransom back to the cartels that all of this is endangering us significantly,” Roy told Amanda House during an interview broadcast on Breitbart News Sunday. “The gangs that are now growing in Texas and throughout the country are doing so in part due to the connection to the cartels.”
“So, it is past time for us to recognize that they are a terrorist threat to the United States,” the Congressman from Texas stated.
The authors of the RAND report developed “a preliminary estimate of revenues from human smuggling flowing to all types of smugglers, not just TCOs — ranging from about $200 million to $2.3 billion in 2017.” The “range in uncertainty stemming largely from analytical challenges related to data limitations and time constraints.”
The authors also looked at “taxes,” or “pisos” paid by migrants to drug-trafficking TCOs as they pass through their cartel-controlled smuggling routes. Those “taxes” range from $30 million to $180 million, the report stated.”
