If you thought undocumented aliens crossing the southern border were coming solely from Mexico and Central America, you were wrong.

One border agent says people are coming from the Middle East. Places like Iran, Iraq, Pakistan, and Yemen.

Deputy Chief Border Agent Raul Ortiz noted, “So far, here in South Texas, we’ve apprehended folks from 44 different countries. These are from the Middle East, Southeast Asia, Yemen, Iraq, Pakistan, Iran, you name it. We continue to see some increases in those numbers. Most of the people we apprehend are from Central America, Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. But we do see folks from across the world, and probably, by the end of the year, I would venture to say that number, will get as high as 60 different countries we will apprehend people from.

He added, “It is certainly a humanitarian crisis, it’s a border security crisis, but more importantly, it’s a policy crisis that needs to be addressed at the highest levels.

"One of the things that people aren't talking about, are the 25,000 people that have gotten away from us…we actually don't know who they are," says Deputy Chief Agent Raul Ortiz.

44 countries?

HOW IN THE WORLD IS THIS POSSIBLE!?

Due to the overwhelming number of migrants attempting to cross into America from the southern border, the Department of Homeland Security is taking action.

They are sending 750 additional agents to the border.

Maybe this will open up some Democrat eyes.

Then again, no, no it won’t.

Here’s the DHS press release:

Today, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen M. Nielsen issued a memorandum to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Kevin McAleenan outlining new steps the agency must take to combat the growing security and humanitarian crisis at the southern border.

“The crisis at our border is worsening, and DHS will do everything in its power to end it,” said Secretary Nielsen. “We will not stand idly by while Congress fails to act yet again, so all options are on the table. We will immediately redeploy hundreds of CBP personnel to the border to respond to this emergency. We will urgently pursue additional reinforcements from within DHS and the interagency. And we will require those seeking to enter the United States to wait in Mexico until an immigration court as reviewed their claims.”

Continued:

The Secretary ordered Commissioner McAleenan to undertake emergency surge operations and immediately increase its temporary reassignment of personnel and resources from across the agency to address the influx of migrants. According to the directive, the CBP Office of Field Operations shall accelerate its planned reallocation of up to 750 officers to Border Patrol Sectors that are affected by the emergency. Moreover, CBP is directed to explore raising that target, is authorized to exceed it, and shall notify the Secretary if reassignments are planned to exceed 2,000 personnel.

Secretary Nielsen further directed CBP to immediately expand the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), a DHS initiative to return aliens to Mexico to wait during the pendency of their U.S. immigration proceedings. The Secretary directed CBP to return hundreds of additional migrants per day above current rates to Mexico, consistent with U.S. law and humanitarian obligations. This increase in returns shall include individuals apprehended or encountered at or between POEs. Moreover, the agency is directed to plan for an expansion of MPP beyond the locations in which it currently operates in California and Texas.

President Trump tweeted:

Democrats, working with Republicans in Congress, can fix the Asylum and other loopholes quickly. We have a major National Emergency at our Border. GET IT DONE NOW!

Biden To Create Court Reform Commission Featuring Options That Go ‘Well Beyond’ Court Packing

Published

on

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden released a video clip on Thursday morning that revealed he will create a national commission to help reform the current court system, which no doubt is a response to President Trump nominating Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court during an election year. The statement delivered by the former vice president comes after he has repeatedly refused to answer questions about his position concerning court packing. A lot of folks on the left support this measure as a way to stack the bench with liberal judges so they can pretty much have free reign. via Daily Wire: “If elected, what I will do is I’ll put together a national commission of bipartisan commission of scholars, constitutional scholars, Democrats, Republicans, liberal, conservative,” Biden told CBS News. “And I will ask them to over 180 days come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system because it’s getting out of whack, the way in which it’s being handled. And it’s not about court packing. There’s a number of other things that our constitutional scholars have debated and I’d look to see what recommendations that commission might make.” https://twitter.com/SteveGuest/status/1319247217337749508 Biden’s statement comes as he has refused to state whether he supports packing the courts and has stated that voters do not deserve to know if he will do so. Top Democrats such as Sen. Mazie Hirono (HI) have stated that court packing is an option when it comes to what Democrats claim is “court reform.” CBS News asked the former vice president if this proposed national commission would “study this issue about whether to pack the court.” Biden responded by saying, “No, whether — there’s a number of alternatives that are — go well beyond packing.” He was then asked if this was…

Hunter Biden’s Business Partner Labels Email ‘Genuine,” Says Hunter Sought Advice From Father On Deals

Published

One of the individuals who is listed as a recipient of an email that was published as part of a report by the NY Post detailing some kind of business arrangement with a company from China and members of the Biden family, Tony Bobulinski, has come forward and confirmed the email is “genuine” then elaborated on the Bidens’ role in this particular deal. Included in this email message is a note saying that “Hunter has some office expectations he will elaborate.” There’s also mention of some kind of equity split with “H” getting “20” and “10 held by H for the big guy.” There are no further details explaining the meaning of these references. Here’s more from Fox News: “The reference to ‘the Big Guy’ in the much publicized May 13, 2017 email is in fact a reference to Joe Biden,” Bobulinski said in a statement to Fox News. Bobulinski said he is the CEO of Sinohawk Holdings, which he explained “was a partnership between the Chinese operating through CEFC/Chairman Ye and the Biden family.” He said he was brought on as CEO by Hunter Biden and James Gilliar, who was listed as the sender of the email. Bobulinski went on to say he does not believe Joe Biden’s past claim that he and Hunter did not discuss his son Hunter’s business, claiming that Hunter “frequently referenced asking him for his sign-off or advice on various potential deals.” “I’ve seen Vice President Biden saying he never talked to Hunter about his business. I’ve seen firsthand that that’s not true, because it wasn’t just Hunter’s business, they said they were putting the Biden family name and its legacy on the line,” Bobulinski told Fox News. “The Biden family aggressively leveraged the Biden family name to make millions of dollars from foreign…
