Steve Scalise reveals that six from the FBI Terrorist Watchlist have been caught
As posted at Entertainment News on 8 April 2021, Representative Steve Scalise noted on Fox & Friends that six terrorists have been apprehended at Biden’s open Southern border.
House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) sounded off on Thursday about the crisis at the border, going so far as to say that it was created by President Joe Biden.
While appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Scalise said that the situation is particularly dangerous for young girls who are trying to make their way across the border. He also pointed out that six people from the terrorist watch list have been caught trying to cross the border, calling this “dangerous for America.”
“[I]t is beyond a disaster,” Scalise said. “What they’ve done, not only to these border towns — the mayors you hear them, Democrat and Republican, expressing outrage over what President Biden created. Joe Biden created this crisis. But the child abuse and neglect that’s going on, it’s not just the 20-plus day treks that some of these young kids are taking, 10 years old in many cases … over a third of the girls are being sexually assaulted or raped along the journey.”
“Then they get to the United States, and you’ve seen how they are being treated — not given proper food and shelter being put next to somebody six inches apart with COVID,” he added. “All this is going on on the border. You can see why Vice President Kamala Harris either doesn’t want to have this dumped in our lap because Joe Biden created the mess and is asking her to mop it up, or else she’s in over her head. Either way, it doesn’t bode well for the United States.”
“[T]hink about this. … You’ve got now at least six people on the terrorist watch list that have been caught,” Scalise continued. “They won’t tell us how many more — no doubt there’s many more that have come across our border. This isn’t from Central and South America. This is from Middle Eastern countries, other nations where they have people on the terrorist watch list that know there’s a poor southern border, and if you want to come and do harm in America, it’s free rein.”
“It’s open season,” he concluded. “And this is dangerous for America, and it’s even more dangerous to these kids that President Biden’s policies have encouraged to come across make the trek and get sexually assaulted along the way.”

Why does this story only find mention on talk radio and Entertainment News?
If eight terrorists (two from Yemen and these six) had been caught during any conservative administration, it would be at the top of every paper. Today, the NYTwits are leading with the death of Queen Elizabeth’s consort. The Houston
Comical Chronicle has chosen a story centering on a murder of one and shooting of five in Bryan, Texas.
By this, I take it that the liberal press thinks that we need an aristocracy or more gun-control pablum.
Texas Gov. Abbott says Texas agencies are reporting child abuse and sexual assault at San Antonio detention center
The CBS affiliate for Dallas/Fort Worth reports that Texas Governor Abbott has alleged that Biden’s detention center for minor illegal aliens has become a hotbed for sexual abuse and child neglect.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says state agencies have reported allegations of sexual abuse and child neglect at the migrant facility in San Antonio.
Speaking in front of the Freeman Coliseum Wednesday evening, Abbott said he received reports from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission and Texas Department of Family and Protective Services regarding these alleged acts.
Abbott said the agencies also reported that there is not enough staff at the Freeman Coliseum to supervise the children, some children are not eating throughout the day and children with COVID-19 are not being separated from those without the virus.
“The Biden Administration must immediately shut down this facility, and the children in this facility should be moved to other federally run facilities where the government has the space, personnel and resources to ensure their safety,” Abbott said.
“The Biden Administration caused this crisis… and has repeatedly failed to address it,” the governor added. “The administration failed to plan for the influx of children that they invited to come. Now they face allegations of despicable child abuse and neglect. This must end.”
Abbott said he is also directing the Texas Department of Public Safety and Texas Rangers to investigate the allegations.
U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, also responded to the allegations and called for a federal investigation.
“Unaccompanied children that arrive at our border have already endured dangerous conditions at home and a treacherous journey to get here,” Cornyn said. “The fact that any child would experience abuse in the care of the U.S. government is despicable. The HHS Inspector General must fully investigate these allegations and the treatment of children at this facility.”
The Freeman Coliseum is currently housing around 1,300 migrant children as the state continues see an increase in illegal crossings at the southern border with Mexico.

Oddly, I remember Gavin Newsom pardoning murderers and rapists so that ICE could not deport them
It seems that Gavin Newsom found it within himself to provide pardons to illegal alien murderers and rapists in order that they could not be deported by ICE. If a liberal governor can do this to defy the federal government, why can’t Texas take similar steps to defy Biden?
Why can’t Governor Abbott just send state troopers in, have them photograph and make audio recordings of evidence, and then hand it over to multiple media outlets (not the Times, but outlets that would distribute it like Breitbart, the New York Post, and others)?
Out of control: CPB releases border crossing numbers for March 2021
Townhall comments on the out-of-control nature of Biden’s border crossing numbers.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection released official border crossing numbers for March 2021 Thursday morning. Total crossings for 2021 already surpass all crossings for 2020.
“In March 2021, CBP encountered more than 172,000 persons attempting entry along the Southwest border. This total represented a 71 percent increase over February 2021,” CBP released in a statement. “This fiscal year CBP has already had over 569,800 encounters. This represents an increase of 24 percent from the total encounters we had during all of Fiscal Year 2020, when migration was limited by the COVID-19 pandemic, and an increase of over 34 percent from approximately the same time frame of Fiscal Year 2019.”
“CBP continues to see a significant increase of unaccompanied children from Central America at the Southwest border, with 18,890 in March 2021 – a 100 percent increase over February. Although less than 11 percent of encounters in March were unaccompanied children, they make up the largest demographic group of individuals in custody at CBP facilities,” the statement continues.
The vast majority of illegal crossers are not unaccompanied minors, but single adults and large groups.
“CBP has recently seen a return to encounters of large groups, especially in the Rio Grande Valley region. These groups of 100 or more individuals had dropped dramatically due to the pandemic, from 216 in Fiscal Year 2019 to 10 in Fiscal Year 2020. As of the end of March 2021, CBP recorded 49 large group encounters in Fiscal Year 2021, totaling over 4,700 individuals,” CBP says. “The majority of the encounters on the Southwest border remains single adults. CBP continues to expel single adults and family units that are encountered pursuant to CDC guidance under Title 42 authority. In March 2021, CBP expelled 103,900 individuals under Title 42, 28 percent of whom were individuals who had been previously expelled from the United States under the same authority. Title 42 expulsions represented 60 percent of the total encounters for the month.”

This seems to reveal a replacement strategy by the Democrats
It seems that the Democrats have figured out that their convincing Blacks to self-destruct has been too successful (since more Black babies are aborted in New York than are born). Therefore, it looks like Democrats have decided on a method of repopulating their ranks.
Houston facility to house 500 unaccompanied illegal alien girls
Breitbart informs us that 500 illegal alien girls will be housed in Houston.
Approximately 500 underage female migrants are expected to begin arriving at a new facility in Houston, Texas. The location is one of several which opened in response to a spike in unaccompanied alien children (UACs) arriving at the U.S. border since President Joe Biden took office.
The new facility will be run by the National Association of Christian Churches, KHOU-11 reported. The facility currently has space and bedding for 500 underage females, however, it remains unclear how they will be affected by the rapidly increasing number of migrants crossing the Rio Grande each day. The facilities are meant to house the migrants until a sponsor in the U.S., usually, a relative, can be found.
U.S. Border Patrol and Department of Homeland Security detention facilities have been overwhelmed by the number of Central American migrants smuggled into the U.S. by cartel-connected actors. Some of those facilities are at 10-times their capacity as officials try to move arriving migrants along the process, while others are released without court dates.

Prior to moving this population of COVID-infected illegals to Houston, the infection rate reported for the state had fallen sharply
Could this be the Democrats’ end game for continuing their COVID crisis and keeping the rest of the country under their boot? Or has the demented leader of the Democrats just forgotten where he laid the key to the border and also forgot to lock the wall?
Please also consider that this article is over a week and a half old when I used it in my post. Therefore, from information heard on talk radio on the morning of 9 April 2021, the occupancy of this shelter had more than doubled.
Senator Steve Daines tells how the Mexican cartel threatened Republican Senators from across Rio Grande
Breitbart reports on the threats leveled at U.S. senators as they visited the border.
Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) told Breitbart News on Monday that he and other Republican senators were “taunted” by Mexican cartel members during a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border in the Rio Grande Valley Sector in Texas. He joined SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily with host Alex Marlow, author of Breaking the News: Exposing the Establishment Media’s Hidden Deals and Secret Corruption, to discuss his observations.
“We went right there at midnight [on Friday] to the Rio Grande River, and we were really taunted by Mexican cartel members,” Daines shared. “They didn’t know it was Republican senators who were staying there — literally on the water’s edge in the brush — but they knew it was probably Border Patrol. They could hear the English voices.
Daines continued, “We had Border Patrol who could translate what the cartel members were saying. It was vile. It was threatening. It was obscene, because they know they can have their way. They’re not afraid. They know they can make thousands of dollars per person that’s crossing right now. That’s what’s going on, right now.”
Marlow asked what the cartel members were saying.
“I can’t repeat it on the air,” Daines replied. “Our Border Patrol guys were saying that they were telling us to stick certain — it related to anatomy and other things. Let me just say that. It was absolutely vile, and it was horrible, and, ‘You can’t stop us,’ and so forth. They had these great big flashlights they shot back at us. This is what’s at stake. It’s lawlessness. They don’t care.”
Daines remarked, “This is a human tragedy. These are children. As we went down the Rio Grande the next day in the patrol boat with the big fully automatic weapons to protect our men and women who protect us on the border, we literally came across a body and retrieved [that came aground] just recently in the last 24 hours.”
“It was just like a day in the life here,” he stated. “Republican senators seeing it firsthand, seeing literally a dead body in the Rio Grande, somebody who had drowned.”
The Montana senator described transnational criminal cartels as financial beneficiaries of the Biden administration’s policies towards the southern border and immigration through human trafficking and drug smuggling.
“The cartels — these multi-billion dollar Mexican cartels — are raking in money by bringing these illegals across as well as the flood of the methamphetamines, the heroin, as well as the fentanyl. This is a 100 percent result of Joe Biden,” he said. “The winners here are the cartels.”
Marlow highlighted how Democrat policies towards the U.S.-Mexico border and immigration facilitate human smuggling operations conducted by criminal cartels south of the border.
He said, “The cartels typically have to buy off or intimidate [governments and citizens] with brutal murders. In America, we’re just enabling them because they help Democrats. It’s unbelievable. The cartels must be laughing hysterically at Americans because typically they have to actually work to try to get advantages for themselves. We just have Democrats come into power and now, all of a sudden, the cartels benefit immeasurably and they’re going to make millions — if not billions — of dollars off of us.”
Daines said the Border Patrol advised the President Joe Biden’s transition team to preserve some of the Trump administration’s border and immigration policies, specifically the Remain in Mexico policy. Apprehensions of foreign migrants crossing the southern border are now at a “20-year high,” he added.
“[The] Remain in Mexico policy [and] the safe third country agreement policies that Trump had put in place [had] virtually brought illegal crossings to a 40-year low in 2020, and now we’re looking at a 20-year high in 2021 as a result of a Biden’s policy.”
Migrant holding facilities are over filled beyond capacity, Daines warned.

From a 40-year low in illegal border crossings to an all-time high, that is Biden’s legacy in the first 200 days
Biden took a system (wall, Mexican army at their Northern border, a remain-in-Mexico policy, and an increased number of immigration judges) and trashed it. Don’t tell me that this system was not taken down by design (unless you want to admit that Biden is a doddering fool that could not have won the election except through the coordinated cheating of the Democrat party).
Two thousand illegal aliens released in Texas on the “honor system,” says U.S. Representative Cuellar
Breitbart tells us how 2,000 illegal aliens have been released on the “honor system.”
U.S. Representative Henry Cuellar (D-TX) said thousands of migrants are being released into Texas on the “honor system” without court information or notices to appear.
Rep. Cuellar told Border Report on Sunday that more than 2,000 migrants had been released into South Texas without any court papers. The releases came as Border Patrol agents became overwhelmed by the massively growing numbers of migrant families and children crossing the border.
Breitbart Texas’ Randy Clark first confirmed the practice of releasing migrants without a court date or Notice to Appear on March 21. Since that time, Cuellar says more than 2,000 migrant families have been released into Texas.
On CBS News’ “Face the Nation,” Cuellar told Margaret Brennan, “Some will be returned, but over 2,000 of them have been released into the United States without a Notice to Appear. I emphasize, without a Notice to appear at a immigration court.” The Texas border congressman from Laredo called the move “unprecedented.”
“The family units are being released into the United States,” Cuellar continued. “That’s where the burden of the border communities are felt. The cities, the counties, the NGOs. We’re feeling the brunt of what’s happening with the family units.”
The Washington Post reported Border Patrol officials are now handing out “blank forms” and asking the migrant families to report, on their own effort, to a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement office.
Department of Homeland Security spokeswoman Sarah Peck explained, “Our policy remains that families are expelled, and in situations where expulsion is not possible due to Mexico’s inability to receive the families, they are placed into removal proceedings,” the Post reported.
However, Breitbart’s Randy Clark, a 32-year-veteran of the U.S. Border Patrol who retired last year, contradicted that explanation. In a March 21 article he wrote:
Without a Notice to Appear, the migrants are free to travel about the country and are not officially placed into the immigration court system. The court cannot order the removal of a migrant in absentia for failing to appear for a future court date, the source explained. the existence of a removal in absentia order from the court allows immigration officials to remove the alien without appeal if they are later encountered. Under this new process, the migrants will not have a removal in absentia order for failure to appear officials issued no order to appear under the unprecedented plan put in place by the Biden administration on Sunday morning.

I will differ with Representative Cuellar. There is no honor in the Biden immigration system.
Find another word for it. There is no honor in Biden’s system. This is nothing but “release and release.”
Students blame Trump for border crisis – until they hear Biden’s policies
Breitbart demonstrates and then records students’ reactions to the fallacies built into Joe Biden’s border policies.
University of Florida Students blamed former President Donald Trump for the ongoing crisis currently taking place on the U.S. southern border — until they learned that President Joe Biden called for an “immediate surge to the border” as a candidate.
Campus Reform reporter Ophelie Jacobson conducted a social experiment at the University of Florida, where she asked students who they believe is to blame for the crisis on the U.S. border: former President Trump or sitting President Biden.
“According to the Department of Homeland Security, this is the biggest migrant surge that our country has seen in 20 years,” Jacobson told the students. “Who do you think is to blame for the border crisis right now? Trump or Biden?”
All but one student in the video answered that Trump is to blame.
“Trump,” said one student, who went on to elaborate, “he was the president for the past four years, so, basically, Biden has only been in office not even 100 days. Basically all the problems we have right now, like, he hasn’t had enough time to fix them yet. So you have to blame it on the past administration.”
“Trump’s [fault],” another student answered. “Because he just lacked a lot of empathy, and connection with, like, the stories that are happening, and the border.”
But when Jacobson told students that as a candidate, “Biden said that if he were to become president, he would encourage illegal immigrants to ‘immediately surge to the border,’” students appeared to change their stances with regards to who is to blame for the border crisis.
During a past Democrat presidential primary debate, Biden said that in addition to what the Obama administration supported with regards to “the DACA program,” and finding “a pathway for eleven million” illegals, “What I would do, as president, is several more things.”
“I would, in fact, make sure that there is — we immediately surge to the border all those people are seeking asylum,” Biden affirmed.
Jacobson also told students that migrants have been coming to the southern border “wearing Biden campaign shirts,” and “a lot of them, when they’re asked why they’re coming, they say because President Biden promised we would get through — that we would get free health care.”
“Even the Mexican president has blamed the surge on President Biden,” Jacobson added. “So knowing all this, knowing that it’s the biggest surge in 20 years, do you still believe that it is Trump’s fault?”

Although this pushes the students a little toward the truth, it does not really expose them to the full picture
Although this short interview does introduce the concept that Biden might have some culpability in the mess at the border, it does not provide the full picture to the students. However, since these students currently probably find themselves immersed in Mother Jones, the Daily Kos, and the Huffington Post might be considered mainstream, showing them the truth would likely be rejected outright.
Most Independents and many Democrats blame Joe Biden for border rush
Breitbart lays out the findings of a recent poll that showed most Independents and many Democrats held Joe Biden to blame for the border rush.
A poll by YouGov shows that 69 percent of political independents are blaming President Joe Biden for the spiraling migration surge at the southern border and that only 35 percent of Biden’s 2020 voters excuse him from blame.
The March 23-25 poll of 1,606 adults was conducted for Yahoo! News, and it asked: “Who do you think bears most of the blame for the situation at the border?”
Overall, 66 percent of adults give most, some, or a little blame to Biden, while just 19 percent say he serves no blame. Sixteen percent said they were not sure.
However, the numbers are worse for Biden among the swing-voting independents who decide elections.
Thirty-two percent of swing-voting independents give Biden “most of the blame,” while 16 percent give him “some blame” and 21 percent give him a “little blame.”
Just 17 percent of independents say Biden does not deserve any blame.
Worse, Biden’s base is divided, even before the bulk of the expected migrants arrive in the spring.
Twenty-two percent of Biden’s 2020 voters give him “most of the blame” or “some blame.”
Thirty-two percent of his 2020 voters give him “a little” blame.
Thirty-five percent give him “no blame.”
Those numbers will likely get worse for Biden before the 2022 election, while his pro-migration progressive deputies continue to help many poor economic migrants enter the United States to compete for good jobs, decent housing, and K-12 resources, said Rob Law, the director of regulatory affairs and policy at the Center for Immigration Studies.
“The United States is supposed to be reopening,” he said, adding:
Are the American people going to be punished again, and forced back into their homes, and their businesses shut down, because a new wave of virus spread is occurring … simply because the Biden folks don’t want to actually enforce the laws? What you’re going to see here is that there are dire consequences for ordinary Americans … That is going to start generating a lot of outrage from American people.
In the next few months, poll numbers will likely show a greater share of people willing to blame Biden for most of the problem — and may show more people feeling strongly opposed to Biden’s policy, Law said.

Illegal alien deaths jump 20 percent in Texas county 80 miles from border
Breitbart points out how deaths among illegal aliens have jumped by 20% in a Texas county 80 miles from the border.
The migrant border surge bringing hundreds of thousands of people to Texas yielded a 20 percent increase in deaths in Brooks County in 2021 to date. The increase in deaths in this county, located 80 miles inland from the Mexican border, follows multiple years of decreasing deaths, according to the local sheriff.
Brooks County Sheriff Benny Martinez told Breitbart Texas his office is witnessing an increase in the number of migrants dying in his county this year as a result of the migrant surge at the border. The deaths occur when human smugglers drop the migrants off on ranches located south of the U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint located on U.S. Highway 281 in the middle of the county. The smugglers force the migrants to march through the ranches, resulting in 18 deaths so far this year.

Illegal alien drownings jump in Mexican border state near West Texas
Breitbart points out how drownings among illegal aliens have jumped at the border.
Authorities in Mexico and the U.S. are documenting a spike in drownings as a growing number of Central American migrants try to cross the Rio Grande.
In the border state of Coahuila, authorities documented a total of 44 drownings since the start of 2021. According to information provided to Breitbart Texas by state officials, the drownings have taken place in Piedras Negras and Ciudad Acuna. In Piedras Negras, authorities documented 24 drownings in three months, while in 2020, they documented 28 for the entire year.

Three hundred and seventy pounds of meth are seized in tractor-trailer at Texas border crossing
Breitbart reports that 370 pounds of meth have been seized from a tractor-trailer at a Texas border crossing.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers seized nearly 370 pounds of methamphetamine at a Texas border crossing commercial lane. The officers found the $7.3 million in drugs in a tractor-trailer attempting to enter from Mexico.
CBP officers assigned to the Laredo Port of Entry on March 25 observed a tractor-trailer approaching from Mexico to enter the United States via a World Trade Bridge commercial border crossing, according to information received from Laredo, Texas, CBP officials. The driver presented a manifest listing the cargo as industrial magnets.
