While it’s a clever stunt, much of Hudspeth County is the middle of nowhere.  The six miles to I-10 are six miles of nothingness, and I-10 is one of those routes with Border Patrol checkpoints there to look for vehicles carrying the illegals who did that six mile hike and agents looking for vehicles carrying illegals away from the border.  Plus no one is looking for James O’Keefe.

Hudspeth is also a region of the Texas/Mexico border that’s rather famous for Mexican military incursions in the late 90s & early 2000s.  Usually the Mexican military only runs interference for the cartels further west, but in Hudspeth, they ran interference and ran drugs for the cartels many miles inland.

But the real issue is almost less one of physically securing every mile of border and one of defense in depth.

If you don’t catch an illegal alien at the border but you still deport them any time they come in contact with any government official, whether it be city cop or social worker or DMV, you’ll solve the illegal immigration problem fast.  And you’ll prevent the terrorism problem as well, because there won’t be a community of illegals for them to hide in or a thriving business in smuggling to get them across the border.

Also, Hudspeth is not the same as the Rio Grande Valley.

In the Rio Grande Valley, Border Patrol is being overwhelmed by 15-17 year olds and people dragging their children in tow because they know that Obama will not deport them.  Those people are looking to get caught, because they know they’ll be released and given handouts.  Cartels are bringing more people north immediately after they send teenage “kids” to the BP, because they know they’ll be busy processing those “children” to be shipped off to US cities inland where no one but Obama and Luis “My Only Loyalty Is To Illegal Aliens” Gutierrrez will want them.  While the BP is busy doing that paperwork, the cartels slip their high-value people and products in.

Big empty areas have been a concern for a long time, but ultimately they’re less of a concern than the mess in the Rio Grande Valley.

Ebola In Mexico?

Not yet.

A couple of days ago, a “first case” was reported by El Diario de Chihuahua, still accessible by Google Cache:

140808 ebola in mexico 1

 

Don’t worry, Mexican officials are denying it:

Federal District The Federal Health Ministry (SSA) denied the report published by various media who warned about a suspected case of Ebola in the country, to ensure that Mexico has not submitted any contagion.

Through a brief press release, the federal agency said that yesterday, a site named http://www.novatimes.net, released a report of an alleged case of Ebola in Mexico, specifically a student in Mexico City.

Normally, I’d have as much faith in Mexican officials as Sgt. Tahmooressi does, but… novatimes.net is a sketchy “news” site with headlines like this:

140808 ebola in mexico 2

So less likely “huge contagion in Mexico covered up by Mexican government” and more a case of “shoddy Mexican reporter copies BS fake news site for sensationally BS story”.

Until they do get their first case of ebola.

Of course, the illegals coming across the border right now are bringing with scabies, measles, infectious active tuberculosis, flu, all kinds of tropical diseases, and even leprosy.

Want to know how folks who work on the border feel about the current illegal alien/amnesty/DACA nonsense and being ordered to by policy from DC to release thousands of illegals into the US who are subsequently treated better than returning US veterans?

The comparison to Iraq and Afghanistan veterans is pretty apt (and a lot of BP agents are vets, too) – because the duty they’ve sworn to uphold for the nation is something the Obama administration has intentionally told them to give up.

They’ve been ordered to lose and every day that illegals are shipped further in country, they’re being forced to participate in the surrender of their nation.

-

Just as a reminder of how bad it is, adult illegals in their mid-30s are able to lie and say they’re kids – and be enrolled in schools – because our immigration policy has been made violently, willfully stupid in order to harm the nation – specifically the part of the nation that still wants to be a nation.

Chris Matthews Being “Ethnic”

Posted: August 3, 2014 by ShortTimer in Illegal Immigration, Media, Racists

Via The Right Scoop, a quick video by soopermexican:

That doesn’t even take into account that he says Ted Cruz is “making a name for himself” on immigration, after the liberal news media sphere had a conniption fit over his filibuster on Obamacare. Ted Cruz has “made a name for himself” by being true to the Constitution and fearless about striking at the Democrats and spineless RINO Republicans.

But don’t let that get in your way of being a racist moron, Chris Matthews.

And of course, we yet again have the failure of the left to make a distinction between legal and illegal immigration.  One is being invited and welcomed into a neighbor’s house, the other is breaking and entering.

Immigrant is used because legal terms have been lazy for decades – the two types of people coming to the country are non-immigrants (who file for visitor visas) and immigrants… who are officially anyone who is not a non-immigrant.  So the illegal alien drug smuggler or sex-slave trafficker who’s coming in just to engage in his criminal enterprise and hasn’t filed a non-immigrant visa is officially on paper an “immigrant”.

So Chris Matthews will lump in the people yearning to breathe free with the people yearning to get free stuff from the welfare state.

And of course to him they’re all “ethnic” and all “ethnic” people are a monolithic identical racial block and anyone who disagrees with the leftist race-identity politic block is a race traitor.  Limousine liberal logic.

AJ Delgado over at NRO wrote a piece titled “Black Americans: The True Casualties of Amnesty”, and opens it up like this:

One of the sleeper issues surrounding the debate on amnesty for illegal immigrants – an inconvenient one that no proponent of a widespread amnesty wishes to acknowledge – is the devastating effect so-called immigration reform will have on African Americans.

The black unemployment rate is almost 11 percent, far higher than that of any other group profiled by labor statistics. African Americans are disproportionately employed in lower-skilled jobs – the very same jobs immigrants take. As Steven Camarota asked in a recent column, why double immigration when so many people already aren’t working?

The answer is pretty simple, really.  The Democrats want a new underclass of voters.

Black folks are increasingly wandering off the reservation when it comes to supporting Democrats.  Black Louisiana Senator Elbert Guillory changed party affiliation last year because he saw that the point of the left is control, and that the left’s promises are all betrayals and failures:

Black folks like Bernadette Lancelin may not have thought through and realized that “White House money” comes from taxpayers, but she knows that her community is being betrayed in favor of illegal aliens.

Black folks like Elaine from Baltimore want to know where they can get asylum:

US Civil Rights Commissioner Peter Kirsanow wrote the Congressional Black Caucus warning of the economic issues:

peter kirsanow

“The obvious question is whether there are sufficient jobs in the low-skilled labor market for both African-Americans and illegal immigrants,” Kirsanow wrote. “The answer is no.”

He referenced a 2008 commission hearing in which witnesses testified that illegal immigration “disproportionately impacts the wages and employment opportunities of African-American” males. Scholars noted that 40% of the 18-point decline in the black employment rate from 1960 to 2000 was due to immigration. He noted that illegal immigrants and blacks “often find themselves in competition for the same jobs.”

He pointed out a host of factors (many influenced or caused by progressive policies) that lead to large numbers of black Americans competing for the same jobs that no-skill/low-skill illegal aliens do.  What I didn’t see him mention is that the illegal alien can operate under the table and save their employer compliance costs for things like minimum wages, workman’s comp or social security – thus an employer can pay an illegal in cash, saving the employer resources, and allowing the illegal alien to unfairly compete in yet another way with American citizens.  And as noted, a large percentage of those poor Americans who are forced out of yet another job are black.

Democrats still have a huge number of black folks voting for them as a block, and they expect it to stay the same.  But the Democrats want new guaranteed voters and cheap labor (and many amoral Republicans want cheap labor, too).  A huge influx of teenagers moved around the country to strategic districts who will be voting Democrat not just next election but in every subsequent election – and they will be voting – that’s why Democrats oppose voter ID laws – that demographic change is how Democrats expect to dominate the nation in one party rule forever (flipping Texas is their most public focus).

Not sure if they’ll declare a thousand-year-reich or a people’s collective immediately afterwards.  Could go either way.

 

From the LA Times:

A U.S. Border Patrol agent can be sued for firing across the border and killing a 15-year-old Mexican boy, a federal appeals court ruled Monday, a decision with potentially broad consequences for the highly charged issue of law enforcement’s use of deadly force along the border.

The decision by a three-judge panel in New Orleans said the allegations in the 2010 shooting of Sergio Adrian Hernandez Guereca, if proven in court, would amount to “an official abuse of power so arbitrary as to shock the conscience.” Because of that, the case can go forward, the judges ruled.

That “15 year old boy” was someone in the employ of a cartel.  Cartels use teenagers because if they get caught, the American judicial system still thinks it’s 1950 and sends them right back because “children are special” or some such mush-brained feel-good nonsense.  This allows cartels to have very effective scouts who can deliver information on operations almost immediately.  They’re treated with kid gloves by the fedgov and they take every advantage of it.  The law treats them as misguided waifs, rather than career criminals – and thus provides criminal organizations with operatives who are immune to the law.

What the story buries is that the “boy” was throwing stones at the agent while the agent was handcuffing another smuggler.  The “boy” was high in a drainage ditch with an angle to exploit plunging fire while the agent was fighting with another alien he was apprehending.

Lawyers in the case say it’s the first time that an appeals court has extended the protections of the U.S. Constitution to a noncitizen on the Mexican side of the U.S. border.

“It’s a huge human rights victory,” said attorney Robert Hilliard, who represents the boy’s family. “It gives you a voice inside a U.S. courtroom. They have to focus on, ‘Did the border agent do something wrong?'”

It’s a “human rights victory” if you call being able to throw stones at federal agents a “human right”.

Border Patrol officials declined to comment on the decision, which reaffirmed the long-standing rule that the agency itself cannot be sued because of the government’s sovereign immunity. The agent, Jesus Mesa Jr., is liable to the suit because his actions went beyond his lawful authority, the judges said.

“No reasonable officer would have understood Agent Mesa’s alleged conduct to be lawful,” they wrote.

EVERY reasonable officer would’ve understood Agent Mesa’s conduct to be lawful.  He was fighting with one alien and getting stones thrown at him by another alien.

This is what happened to one agent down in the Rio Grande Valley a couple years back:

He went to go catch a group of aliens who proceeded to ambush him and throw stones at him and his vehicle.  A chunk of concrete thrown by an alien went through his window and smashed him in the face, incapacitating him.  I don’t know about other injuries, but I know the group was large (numbers I heard were in the 20s), and a motorcycle tire was thrown through the back window of his vehicle as well.

It’s not exactly uncommon, either.

Thing is, a rock is a perfect weapon against US agents.  Hamstrung by racist organizations like The Race with lawyers that exist to target federal agents, an illegal alien can throw a rock, cause harm, and immediately say they were unarmed.  As soon as their projectile is in the air, they can claim they don’t want any trouble.  They can reach for another one and throw it, and they can play the same game over and over.

The very thing they were hired to do was to apprehend illegal aliens breaking into the country – whether simply breaking in or smuggling.  And with this ruling, a federal agent can now be stoned to death or face a lawsuit – or be forced to retreat from doing their job – ever.

“These are not small harassing attacks,” said Shawn Moran, vice president and spokesman for the National Border Patrol Council, referring to the rock-throwing incidents. “They are more like biblical stonings.”

Moran added that agents were now “open to civil liability for doing their job.”

To those in the media, they’re just “kids throwing rocks” and the judges are right and the agent is a maniac who wants to murder honor students.

Some of those people claiming it’s just “kids throwing rocks” would find their perception changes if they were to be pelted with stones and rocks and chunks of concrete in order to get them to understand the actual perception of a “reasonable officer” who’s being rocked.  If Mesa’s lawyer told the judges he was going to throw stones at them for a while in court, and then did so, it would’ve been a 3-0 in favor of Mesa.
