Trump Just Launched Major Border Patrol Operation In Top Sanctuary Slum

Published

on

President Trump works every day on the illegal immigrant issue. He’s determined to reinstate the rule of law and ensure our sovereignty. He has launched a major Border Patrol operation in a top sanctuary slum as part of his efforts to keep Americans safe.

This stretch of the border has been visited by both Vice President Pence and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen. The Border Patrol has just launched Operation Blazing Sands this past month in an effort to stop illegal aliens and to end human smuggling operations.

The area in question is along a stretch of border in the southeastern-most part of the California desert, according to agent Justin Castrejon. In mid-August Operation Blazing Sands was activated in a collaboration between the Border Patrol’s El Centro and Yuma sectors.

“This operation leverages the strengths of El Centro Sector and Yuma Sector to better target transnational criminal organizations,” stated Gloria Chavez, who is the chief of the El Centro Sector. This is deadly business and these agents are risking their lives going after the cartels and smugglers in this region.

From The San Diego Union-Tribune:

“Agents apprehended 2,427 people illegally crossing that part of the border from October 2017 through July 2018, before the operation began, according to data from the sector. That’s about eight people per day and just over 10 percent of the 23,452 people caught in the entire El Centro Sector during that period.

“The sector splits its 70 miles of border among three Border Patrol stations. The 20-mile area where Operation Blazing Sands is focused, known to agents there as the “east desert,” makes up close to 29 percent of that border and is patrolled by agents from the Calexico station.

“Calexico station is the fifth busiest along the southwest border, Castrejon said.

“About 10 miles outside of the town of Calexico, the landscape turns from farmland to short brush and small mounds of sand. The All American canal runs between Interstate 8 and the border, and the canal’s steep sides and strong currents sometimes trap border crossers who are often already exhausted from their journey through the desert in Mexico.

“For many trying to sneak across the border in the El Centro Sector, their goal is Interstate 8, Castrejon explained. If they can make it to a car that’s supposed to pick them up there, they can disappear into traffic before they are detected.

“Near the Gordon Wells exit on Interstate 8, the All American Canal curves under the highway, removing the dangerous obstacle from border crossers’ path and allowing the freeway to stretch closer to Mexico. The sand begins to mound higher in this part of the desert though the dunes don’t yet reach the peaks of those further east at Buttercup, a popular dune buggy area.

“A Border Patrol camera tower stands near the exit, and agents frequently make “cuts” in the area, checking for footprints where they had dragged the sand smooth earlier in the day.

“Just before the canal turns away from Mexico, the border fence changes from 15- to 20-foot bollards used in town to a “floating fence” that was built around 2009. The floating fence has similar bollards, or posts placed close together, that are a few feet shorter, and its base allows agents to prevent sand from mounding into dunes along the fence until it is easy to climb over. If the sand gets too high, the fence can be lifted and set down again on top.

“Despite the heat and the sand that drags and slides underfoot, the area around Gordon Wells has become a popular place to cross, Castrejon said.”

Agents are constantly scanning for illegal aliens who are attempting to cross at these points. They point to footprints on the Mexican side of the fence and a piece of rope tied between bollards to act as a ladder. Sun-blasted water bottles are scattered on the ground along the fence.

Agent Castrejon explained that as he was patrolling in the eastern desert just about a month ago, less than 10 minutes after he checked the area by Gordon Wells, another agent monitoring the camera tower alerted him to a group that had just crossed there behind him. “As much as we’re watching out for them, they’re watching us,” Castrejon said. A spotter probably told the crossers he had just left and waved them on over the border.

This particular group of illegal immigrants got to a car and headed west on the highway. Unfortunately for them Castrejon caught them and arrested a U.S. citizen smuggler and four unauthorized immigrants.

If the immigrants make it to the highway, agents will attempt to pull their car over. If they won’t stop and pull over, agents collaborate over their radios to let each other know where the car is headed. In some cases, agents will deploy a “vehicle immobilization device” that punctures the car’s tires with hollow needles and slowly lets the air out.

The gradual release of air from the tires keeps the passengers safe from being hurt by a blowout. When the car is forced to stop, the agents are there to arrest the occupants. Then the agents go back to the border looking for any that might have been left behind. Sometimes smugglers will leave those who are sick, too old or too young if they slow down the group. They are acceptable casualties… all they care about is the money.

Agent Castrejon cannot say how many agents are involved in the operation. But he did say, “We’re not going to sit by and let a part of the border not be in our control.” He also declined to say how long the operation would last because the Border Patrol doesn’t want to tip off smugglers.

Operations like this by the Border Patrol are necessary. The wall will curtail a lot of this, but we will always need the Border Patrol and the military on the wall once it goes up to patrol it. Operation Blazing Sands has been a great success so far. That’s great news for Americans.

Shots Fired Into ICE Offices In San Antonio After Leftist Threats, FBI Investigating ‘Targeted Attack’

Published

on

Terrorists masquerading as open border activists shot into an ICE office in San Antonio, Texas. This was after they made threats to commit violence. The FBI is now investigating this as a targeted attack based on political rhetoric. Another group of radicals threatened employees of a government contractor in Florida that provides facility space for the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to detain border crossers and illegal aliens the day before this happened. It looks like revolutionary violence has arrived.

Breitbart News, who dares to conduct actual reporting, captured footage of protesters with Never Again Action, Miramar Circle of Protection Friends of Miami-Dade Detainees, Food Not Bombs Fort Lauderdale, Students Working for Equal Rights, and the Black Lives Matter Alliance of Broward County who shouted threats at workers and former employees of the GEO Group, a private contractor used by ICE for facility and detention space. In other words… communists.

One of these violent radicals directly threatened GEO Group’s former general counsel John Bulfin, shouting the locations and addresses of where his children live in the United States. That’s called doxxing and the left is doing if more and more… paging Joaquin Castro who doxxed President Trump’s donors there in San Antonio. The same city as the shooting… hmmm… I detect a trend.

“We know where all your children live throughout the country … John Bulfin you have kids in [bleeped out], you have kids in [bleeped out],” the protester shouted. “We know everything about you and you won’t just be seeing us here.”

“We know where you sleep at night,” another protester shouted. “We know what kind of dog food you buy your dogs.”

“We’re not actually joking,” the protester said before shouting the location of where Bulfin lives. “John Bulfin you go to [bleeped out], you go to church on [bleeped out], you live on [bleeped out the] road. We are not joking.”

From Breitbart:

“The threats came just a day before gunmen allegedly fired shots into local ICE offices and GEO Group offices in San Antonio, Texas in what the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is describing as a “targeted attack.”

“These shootings were cowardly, brazen, violent acts, absolutely without justification and a threat to our entire community,” San Antonio FBI Chief Christopher Combs told KSAT 12. “An attempt to attack federal employees is a federal crime with serious consequences … I don’t think there is a question that they knew which floor the ICE office is on,” said Combs during a press conference Tuesday afternoon at the scene, adding that all the rounds that were recovered were found on the floor that ICE occupies.”

“To fire indiscriminately into any building is not an act of a protest but an act of violence,” Combs said.

“In an interview with Breitbart News, GEO Group VP of Corporate Relations Pablo Paez said the protest threatening the contractor’s employees is “incredibly reckless.”

“The safety of our employees is our top priority and we will do whatever it takes to ensure that their safety and their security remains our top priority,” Paez said. He went on:

“These are politically motivated attacks. We have been a services provider to the federal government for over 30 years. The fact is that the services we provide in our facilities today are in no way different than the high quality, professional services under the same standards that we provided for eight years under President Obama’s administration. So where was the outrage then?

“Last year, “abolish ICE” protesters targeted agents in the city of Portland, Oregon, shouting racial slurs at Hispanic and black American ICE officers, Breitbart News reported. Those same abolish ICE activists also videotaped themselves beheading a doll of President Donald Trump. The images depicted Trump’s head being chopped off with a guillotine.”

What kind of sicko threatens peoples’ children, families, and dogs like this? Oh, that’s right… leftist ones. You don’t see this on the right.

The shooting occurred around 3 a.m. at an ICE building where two floors that housed administrative and executive offices were targeted, according to the San Antonio Express-News. The outlet reported another shooting occurred at a separate facility where an ICE contractor was located.

All of the shots that we have found are on the floors where ICE had offices,” Combs said. “This is no question a very targeted attack. It’s not a secret facility, you can go online, it’s [the address is] out there. So they did some research, they knew what floors ICE was on, they knew what buildings they were and they hit those.”

One guy was taken into custody and then released because he wasn’t the one who did the shooting.

Daniel Bible, the field office director for the agency’s enforcement and removal operations in San Antonio, blamed the shooting on elected officials, the media and activists for a breakdown in political discourse that has encouraged violent acts.

“Political rhetoric and misinformation that various politicians, media outlets and activist groups recklessly disseminate to the American people regarding the ICE mission only serve to further encourage these violent acts,” Bible told Fox News affiliate, KABB-TV. “ICE officers put their lives on the line each and every day to keep our communities safe. This disturbing public discourse shrouds our critical law enforcement function and unnecessarily puts our officers’ safety at risk.”

“We are concerned that there could be additional attacks, we have to stop that,” Combs said. “We can not allow political discourse to lead us to the point of violence, where federal employees, innocent people doing their jobs are put in harm’s way.”

These people knew exactly who they were shooting at. And yes, there were people in the building at that time of night. They won’t be satisfied until someone dies over this. Actually, if you count the dead Antifa terrorist who firebombed an ICE facility in Tacoma, Washington, someone already has.

AZ Court Of Appeals: No Death Penalty For Illegal Accused Of Murdering Grant Ronnebeck

Published

on

...

* By

Makes you wonder how many of these judges are on the take from the cartels.

How many more Americans are going to be slaughtered by illegal aliens? These judges are despicable and should be held accountable for the things they do.

The Democrat party is responsible for every single American murdered by an illegal alien.

Via Breitbart:

An Arizona court made official this week that the illegal alien charged with murdering 21-year-old Grant Ronnebeck will not face the death penalty because of his alleged “intellectual disability.”

Last month, Judge Michael Kemp ruled that 34-year-old illegal alien Apolinar Altamirano was not eligible for the death penalty because he had a fifth-grade education and was unable to obtain special education because he grew up in rural Mexico. Last year, Kemp ruled that prosecutors in the case would not be allowed to mention that Altamirano was an illegal alien who had been living in the U.S. for more than 20 years.

This week, the Arizona Court of Appeals reinforced Kemp’s decision, telling prosecutors that they would not be allowed to seek the death penalty against Altamirano.

On January 22, 2015, Altamirano entered a QuickTrip convenience store in Mesa, Arizona, where Ronnebeck worked as a store clerk, and allegedly shot the young man to death after demanding a pack of cigarettes, Breitbart News reported at the time.

After shooting and killing Ronnebeck, prosecutors say Altamirano stepped over the body of the young man to grab a couple more packs of cigarettes before fleeing the scene. Following the alleged murder, the illegal alien sent police on a high-speed chase and was eventually arrested and taken into custody.

At the time of the alleged murder, Altamirano — an alleged self-proclaimed member of the Sinaloa Cartel — had been out of police custody on bond despite having orders to be deported from the U.S.

Prosecutors will continue seeking a first-degree murder conviction for Altamirano.

“Our children are worth … it’s blood on [the Democrats’] hands,” Angel Dad Steve Ronnebeck said during a press conference for Angel Families in June. ” … I made a promise right after Grant died that I was going to keep fighting for Grant and keep fighting for the American people. What the American people don’t understand is that it’s going to happen to them or somebody they know … with so many people coming across our border.”
