U.S. Border Patrol agents discovered 11 Chinese nationals hidden inside pieces of furniture and being smuggled across the border from Mexico, officials said on Tuesday.
Customs and Border Patrol stopped an American citizen last Saturday who was driving a large truck into the U.S. at the San Ysidro crossing.
The man’s truck was referred for a secondary search at which time the agents discovered the illegals hiding in various pieces of furniture. One was even found inside the shell of a washing machine.
The driver, who has not been publicly identified, was arrested and charged with attempted human smuggling.
Border patrol also put an immigration hold on the Chinese citizens for likely deportation back to China.
“CBPcannot stress enough the dangers of smuggling people,” said Pete Flores, director of field operations in San Diego for the agency.
“These are human beings that smugglers subject to inhumane conditions that could have deadly consequences,” Flores added. “Fortunately, no one was seriously injured.”
This is not the first time that immigration officials discovered illegals from China.
“On Nov. 7, CBP officers at the same location found six Chinese nationals concealed in another moving truck, behind a false wall,” the New York Post reported.
China is also not the only overseas nation with citizens increasingly trying to illegally enter the U.S.
According to National Catholic Reporter, Border Patrol agents are finding more and more African nationals trying to sneak into the U.S.
CBP are finding illegals from such African nation as Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Angola.

Trump Admin. Finally Moving to End ‘Birth Tourism’ and Anchor Babies
The Trump Administration is finally moving to put a crimp in “birth tourism” and “anchor babies.”
The Trump Administration is finally moving to put a crimp in “birth tourism” and “anchor babies” where pregnant foreigners come to the U.S. to have babies that become automatic U.S. citizens.
The administration has issued new orders to consular officers to deny visas to foreign women who they feel are only interested in visiting the U.S.A. in order to have their children, the Associated Press reported.
The women will now have to definitively prove that they need to visit the U.S. for legitimate medical treatment and that they also have the money to pay for whatever procedures they are looking to receive.
The new rules are set to take effect on Friday, the source told the AP.
The chief goal of the change in visa rules is to put a dampener on the problem of birthright citizenship, which was supposed to be used to confer citizenship on people who intend to be Americans, not foreigners who want to use citizenship to drain the country of benefits.
The change is also an effort to put an end to the foreign groups that make millions a year off “birth tourism,” where they charge women fees to arrange their transportation to the U.S. to have their babies.
As the AP noted:
Birth tourism is a lucrative business in both the U.S. and abroad. American companies take out advertisements and charge up to $80,000 to facilitate the practice, offering hotel rooms and medical care. Many of the women travel from Russia and China to give birth in the U.S. The U.S. has been cracking down on the practice since before Trump took office.
There are no figures on how many foreign women travel to the U.S. specifically to give birth. The Center for Immigration Studies, a group that advocates for stricter immigration laws, estimated that in 2012, about 36,000 foreign-born women gave birth in the U.S., then left the country.
According to the government source, the draft rule is “intended to address the national security and law enforcement risks associated with birth tourism, including criminal activity associated with the birth tourism industry.”
Joe Biden Says Illegal Aliens are More American Than Americans
Democrat Creepy Joe Biden recently insisted on the campaign trail that illegal aliens are more American than actual Americans.
Democrat presidential candidate Creepy Joe Biden recently insisted on the campaign trail that illegal aliens are more American than actual Americans.
During a campaign stop in Ames, Iowa, the former vice president insisted that illegal aliens in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are “more American than most Americans” because they had “done well in school.”
During his stopover, Biden said:
“These kids have come, they’ve done well, most of these kids there’s a lot of them, and they’re not just Hispanic, they’re Asian-Pacific Islanders as well. and they in fact have done very well. In many cases, they’re more American than most Americans because they have done well in school.”
Biden added that DACA kids all share America’s “basic principles” and deserve a pathway to citizenship.

The Democrat candidate for 2020 also recently exclaimed that illegals convicted of drunk driving should not be candidates for deportation because of the conviction.
During a January 20 interview, Biden said that immigration agents should “only arrest for the purpose of dealing with a felony that’s committed [in the United States], and I don’t count drunk driving as a felony.”
“We’re not going to deport anybody who has not — in this country — committed a felony in this country. In this country, committed a felony,” Biden added.
Biden also talked of the death of his own wife in 1972, killed by a drunk driver. But Biden has been lying about this incident for decades and the media never calls him on it.
Along with the claim that Joe Biden had a “blue-collar” upbringing — he had a decidedly upper class (though not “rich”) childhood — Joe Biden has for years claimed that his first wife and his daughter were killed by a “drunk driver” in 1972. However, closer examination of the records proves that the man driving the truck that slammed into the Biden family car was never charged with drunken driving. So, why has the media allowed this perception that Biden lost his wife to a drunk driver to persist?
As late as 2007 Biden said that the man who was involved in the fatal crash that killed his wife and daughter was a “guy who allegedly … drank his lunch” before he got behind the wheel of his truck and in 2001 the TV show Inside Edition aired a tape of Biden saying the truck driver “stopped to drink instead of drive.” Additionally, several media outlets have included the drunk driver claim in their bios of the Senator from Delaware.
This drunk driving accusation, though, is simply a Biden creation and every time this claim is uttered it pains the family of the poor, maligned man involved in the tragic accident with Biden’s family, truck driver Curtis C. Dunn. Gannett owned DelewareOnline reports the anguish that Biden’s continued lie causes the man’s family every time it is uttered.
“To see it coming from [Biden’s] mouth, I just burst into tears,” Dunn’s daughter, Glasgow resident Pamela Hamill, 44, said Wednesday. “My dad was always there for us. Now we feel like we should be there for him because he’s not here to defend himself.”
In truth, there was no finding of alcohol being involved in this tragic incident. In fact, some investigators thought at the time that the accident was caused by Biden’s wife pulling out into the intersection not having seen Dunn’s truck bearing down upon her. It was simply a horrible accident with no blame saying Dunn was at fault, much less drunk.
France Hit with Avalanche of Rapes as Muslim Immigration Rises
As French police recoil in the face of a growing Muslim population, sources are reporting a surge across rapes in the country.
As French police recoil in the face of rising crime and a growing Muslim population, government sources are reporting a surge across rapes in the country.
New statistics from the French Interior Ministry find that women are being attacked in greater numbers than ever. Officials report a 12 per cent rise in sexual violence and an 8.5 per cent rise in murders last year.
But that 12 percent pales in comparison to the 19 percent rise in 2018.
“All French regions have experienced increases in the number of rapes, assaults, and sexual harassment recorded by the security forces in 2019, notably Corsica, Centre-Val-de-Loire, Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes, and Nouvelle-Aquitaine,” the Interior Ministry’s statistics service (SSMI) stated in its report.
“The number of homicides increased significantly in 2019 (970 victims) while it had been stable the last two years,” they added, which amounts to an 8.5 per cent increase from 2018.
Breitbart News added:
Professor of Criminology Alain Bauer labelled the new statistics “the worst record we have seen in years” and added: “These figures are particularly revealing. The violence that is escalating is not only that linked to the maintenance of order.”
“All types of violence are concerned, raising fears of a return to almost 40 years ago, at least on the grounds of homicides and attempted homicides,” he said.
According to a report from the French judicial police released in September, the number of murders and attempted murders have gone up 79 per cent over the last ten years.
Many French neighborhoods have become vulnerable to crime as these areas suffer a sharp rise in Muslim immigration, and residents have expressed feelings of abandonment by the government.

Trump Has Emptied Overcrowded Immigrant Cells, Illegal Crossings Down 78%
Trump has not only emptied the once overcrowded centers holding illegals, but illegal crossings are down 78% since he came to office.
The media is working overtime to ignore the fact that President Trump has not only emptied the once overcrowded centers holding illegals, but illegal crossings are down 78 percent since he came to office.
The Washington Examiner’s Paul Bedard notes that there have been some very important statistics coming out of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement department.
Acting U.S. Customs and Border Protection commissioner Mark A. Morgan recently highlighted some of Trump’s important metrics.
Morgan noted that Trump’s policies have cut illegal immigration and helped alleviate the backlog of illegals piled up in the immigration offices that have been languishing since the Obama administration.
Morgan pointed to two statistics in particular that he says proves the efficacy of Trump’s policies.
As Bedard wrote:
First is daily apprehensions, a number that hit 4,600 at the height of the latest crisis in May. That has now dropped to 1,300.
What’s more, he said, the 21-daily average is below 1,000, a 78% cut. “That’s a dramatic reduction,” he said, in updating the numbers released last week.
Then there are the numbers of illegal immigrants “in custody.” That was a horrific 20,000 in May for an agency that has just 4,000 beds.
Now a quarter of those beds are unused.
“We were having those conversations back then about how the system was overwhelmed, there was overcrowding. We’re just not experiencing that now,” Morgan said.
“Currently, right now, what we’re seeing is our in-custody numbers right now are actually below 3,000, and it has been steady for the past few weeks,” he added.
Morgan insisted that with Trump’s policies finally in place, “We are succeeding in addressing this crisis.”
ICE Acting Director: ‘Recycled’ Children Are Trafficked At Southern Border
If you really care about the children shut down the border.
ICE’s acting director said on Wednesday a “new area” of human trafficking along the U.S. border with Mexico is “recycled” children.
Frankly, it’s a new area of trafficking that we didn’t see before and that’s the recycling of children. Children that are being utilized and sold and rented in Central America and Mexico; given to unrelated adults for the sole purpose of them coming into the country illegally and posing as a family … to try to be released.

Michael Albence, acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), said that the federal law enforcement agency is facing a “new area” of human trafficking along the U.S. border with Mexico as children are used to try to gain admission into the country.
Breitbart News asked Albence to explain the role of human trafficking as it relates to the border crisis.
Albence said that last year ICE dealt with more than a thousand cases of what he called “fraudulent families” and that the agency has dedicated 400 special agents and analysts to cope with the phenomenon.
He said DNA testing has been used to determine familial relations as part of ICE investigations.
“We know children are being sent back three, four, five times to Central America only to be re-victimized and brought back in, and God knows what they’re suffering as they’re going through that process,” Albence said.
The Heritage event highlighted the severity of the human trafficking problem in the United States, including the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children receiving 18.4 million reports of suspected child sexual exploitation and abuse in 2018. More
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is releasing its first Strategy to Combat Human Trafficking, the Importation of Goods Produced with Forced Labor, and Child Sexual Exploitation.
The strategy focuses on preventing these exploitative crimes, protecting victims, investigating and prosecuting perpetrators, partnering with the homeland security enterprise, and enabling the Department of Homeland Security through organizational improvements to combat these illicit activities.
Immigration Slams Illinois County That Let 1,000 Criminals Aliens Into the Streets Last Year
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement slammed Cook County, Illinois, for releasing more than 1,000 criminal illegals back onto the streets
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement slammed Cook County, Illinois, for releasing more than 1,000 criminal illegals back onto the streets in 2019 instead of sending them to federal authorities to be deported.
Thanks to Cook County’s sanctuary county rules, criminal illegals are routinely released without any charges.
ICE named Cook County — the locale for the City of Chicago — as one of the country’s least safe areas because it has allowed so many actual criminals out onto the streets.
In its press release, ICE noted that Cook County has put its citizens at risk by refusing to cooperate with immigration authorities. According to ICE, Cook County repeatedly rejected or ignored immigration detainers placed on criminal aliens.
By criminal aliens, they mean illegal aliens who have been charged and convicted of serious crime, and not just for breaking immigration laws.
“The most concerning issue about working in an area that refuses to cooperate with ICE is not only that we do not know which criminal aliens are being released from custody, but the public doesn’t know either,” said Henry Lucero, ICE’s acting deputy executive associate director for Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO).
“Because ICE does not have access to standard Illinois law enforcement databases, it’s difficult to accurately account for all the aliens who have been arrested, released and committed additional crimes. However, with the limited information ICE can verify, we know that police resources are being wasted, more people are being victimized, and it’s a matter of time until something more significant happens.”
ICE added that “when law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious criminal offenders onto the streets, it undermines ICE’s ability to protect public safety and carry out its mission.”
Immigration detainers are issued by ICE to law enforcement agencies telling cops to hold a particular criminal until immigration officials can pick them up to schedule them for deportation.
In its press release, ICE pointed out that Cook County released criminals guilty of murder, battery, and drug dealing.
Cook County also came under fire from the Justice Department in 2017, when former Attorney General Jeff Sessions threatened to cut federal funding due to their “sanctuary” immigration policies.

Promise Fulfilled: Trump Administration Celebrates 100 Miles of Border Wall Construction
The Trump administration is touting a full 100 miles of new border wall and noting that this is another of his campaign promises fulfilled.
The Trump administration is touting a full 100 miles of new border wall and noting that this is another of his campaign promises fulfilled.
“Today is a milestone that has been reached and a celebration is in order,” Acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said in front of wall in Yuma, Arizona, Fox News reported. “Today I am proud to report that the Trump administration has constructed 100 miles of border wall system along the southern border.”
“This is a milestone achievement for the president, for the department and more importantly for our country — including communities like Yuma,” Wolf added.
“The 100 miles we celebrate today are only the first of many more miles to come,” Wolf said.
The President also tweeted about the successful construction.
“Entire wall is under construction or getting ready to start,” Trump tweeted last Thursday.
Breaking News: The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals just reversed a lower court decision & gave us the go ahead to build one of the largest sections of the desperately needed Southern Border Wall, Four Billion Dollars. Entire Wall is under construction or getting ready to start!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 9, 2020
The administration also slammed those critics who claim that Trump has only replaced old walls. But Trump officials not that the new 30-foot structures — complete with cameras, access roads, lights and other tech — are far, far more effective than the previous walls even when they were new.
“I use this analogy: when someone builds a new modern smart five-bedroom house in place of a dilapidated run down shack, you do not call that a replacement house, you call that a new house,” Wolf said.
The administration noted in October that construction on brand new border wall barriers had begun along the Rio Grande River in Texas marking another promise kept by the Trump administration.
Trump has already built 75 miles of new walls, but to date all that construction has been in areas that replaced dilapidated barriers, or barriers that were purposefully made to be ineffective.
President Trump promised to start building new border walls on our southern border and the Democrats have worked for three years to stop any progress. But Trump has prevailed, anyway, and has set in place miles and miles of new barriers. And now he has started new construction in Texas, right where illegal crossings are worst.
The new barrier is under construction southeast of McAllen in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley sector.
