VIDEO: Border Patrol Debunks Last Week’s Story of Immigrant Climbing Trump’s Border Wall

This week a U.S. Border Patrol Agent reports that the illegal jumping Trump’s border wall did not get away and was caught because of the new border wall system.

Last week a video supposedly showing an illegal alien scaling President Trump’s new border wall and escaping into the U.S., but this week a U.S. Border Patrol Agent reports that the illegal did not get away with it after all and was caught because of the new border wall system.

Last week, a short video seeming to show an illegal scaling Trump’s wall and getting away with illegally entering the U.S. went viral.

By any logical standard, this video does not prove that Trump’s wall in ineffective. Indeed, it shows that great effort, high risk to life and limb, and long planning is needed to get over the wall. This video show that FEW would be able to achieve a scaling.

Still, hatemongers and open borders advocates claimed this video somehow “proved” that Trump’s border wall is a waste of money. Especially since the illegal alien got into the country despite the wall.

But now, the U.S. Border Patrol has debunked the whole story by noting that the illegal was caught, anyway, and did not get away with it, despite what the pro-lawbreakers said.

On Thursday, Missouri Republican Rep. Sam Graves posted a video of a border patrol agent explaining that the illegal alien was quickly apprehended by officers, not just by chance, but thanks to the design of the wall and border security measures.

“Yesterday, a video showing someone illegally crossing into the United States over the new border wall went viral,” Rep. Graves tweeted. “Today the Border Patrol revealed there was more to the story.”

“Spoiler alert: the suspect didn’t get away – and the wall worked as planned,” he added.

In the video, the border patrol officer says:

“Less than 24 hours ago, a video showed up on both Facebook and Twitter showing an individual climbing the border wall. That individual was assisted by the use of a rope ladder and two subjects on the Mexican side. In the video clip, the individual makes it over the border wall and begins to run north into the United States.”

“I’m standing in the exact location where this incident took place. The border wall systems consist of not only a physical barrier, but also lighting, patrol roads, and detection technology. While the physical barrier serves to slow down illicit traffic, the detection technology alerts our agents as to where and when threats emerge. The patrol roads allow for a rapid response.”

“In this particular incident, the border wall system worked exactly as designed. The illicit traffic was slowed down. The detection technology alerted our agents. Agents responded, and the subject was apprehended.”

“That subject turned out to be a 16-year-old Mexican male. All too often, criminal organizations exploit juveniles in this regard. Through partnerships with the government of Mexico, coordination is currently underway to locate the other two subjects involved in this incident.”

“Crossing illegally into the United States is a federal crime. Those who violate the law will be held accountable and there are consequences to these actions.”

Trump Pauses Immigration to Give Americans First Crack at Virus-Vacated Jobs

America first.

Published

on

President Trump’s motives on immigration have always been fairly clear, and today, the Commander in Chief took a rather large and abrupt step toward fulfilling some of his campaign promises on the subject.

As the nation cautiously begins to eye the light at the end of the coronavirus tunnel, President Trump has announced a 60 day pause on immigration into the United States.  His hope seems to be that this will allow Americans to have the first crack at employment once the nation gets back up and running.

President Trump said Tuesday he will temporarily suspend immigration to the United States for at least 60 days in order to make sure Americans laid off during the coronavirus pandemic are “first in line” for new jobs.

Trump, who had tweeted late on Monday that he planned to sign an executive order halting immigration, said during his daily press briefing that the order would last 60 days. After that, Trump said the ban would be reevaluated after he looks at unemployment and economic figures.

“By pausing immigration we will help put unemployed Americans first in line for jobs,” Trump said. “We must first take of care of the American worker.”

He added: “It would be wrong and unjust for Americans laid off by the virus to be replaced with new immigrant labor flown in from abroad.”

And while this had liberals on Twitter raging on Tuesday afternoon, the announcement also enthralled the President’s base, who have been clamoring for stricter enforcement of American immigration laws for years.

President Trump To Suspend Immigration To The U.S. During Coronavirus

Published

on

President Donald Trump has said he will sign an executive order to temporarily suspend all immigration to the US because of the coronavirus.

On Twitter, Trump cited “the attack from the invisible enemy,” as he calls the virus, and the need to protect the jobs of Americans, but did not give more detail.

Breitbart:

President Donald Trump says he will “temporarily suspend immigration” to the United States while the Chinese coronavirus crisis continues to claim American lives.

On Monday evening, Trump said he will pause all immigration to the U.S. — a moratorium that has not been enacted in four decades — while at least 22 million Americans are unemployed due to mandatory business closures by state governments.

Trump’s upcoming executive order to pause immigration to the U.S. is widely supported by American voters. An Ipsos poll released this month found that nearly eight-in-ten Americans, or about 79 percent, want a full halt on immigration to the U.S.

Likewise, the latest Pew Research Center survey reveals that more than 80 percent of American adults call mass migration to the U.S. a “threat.”

For weeks, Breitbart News has chronicled the historical precedent for an immigration moratorium during times of national crisis. During the Great Depression, for instance, mass unemployment was eased by major cuts to legal immigration levels that stayed below 100,000 annual admissions for nearly 15 years from 1931 and 1945. More

CBS News reports, according to sources, reports that the Trump administration has been working on the executive order for weeks:

It’s funny to watch the left cry about this. They want to shut everything down except the border and abortion clinics. Oh yeah, and they’re just giddy about letting criminals out of jail.

Trump Launches Court Campaign to Get Border Wall Completed

The Donald Trump administration is going to court to stop liberals from putting a crimp in his construction plans for new sections of the border wall.

Published

The Donald Trump administration is going to court to stop liberals from putting a crimp in his construction plans for new sections of the border wall.

The coronavirus has shut down much of the construction industry, but the administration has not let the virus end its work on the border wall between the U.S. and Mexico.

Reuters notes that the administration has continued its push through the courts to make sure work on the border wall stays on track.

The Trump administration has filed 41 federal court cases to obtain land along the southern border, with 16 of those cases filed during the last two months — right in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.

In March alone, the Trump administration launched 12 court cases to continue his work on the wall.

In April, Ken Cuccinelli, the acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), noted that, “The wall is continuing to be built! Construction teams are self-contained and are continuing to work.”

Recently Border Patrol chief Rodney Scott reported that another seven miles of border wall was completed last week making 158 miles of border wall being completed since construction began.

Naturally, Democrats have attacked the federal funding for the border wall, especially now, during the coronavirus crisis.

However, despite the left’s attacks, the border wall construction continues onward.

Chicago Mayor Signs Order to Give Illegals Free Coronavirus Relief Funds

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot signed an executive order Tuesday to divert coronavirus relief money to illegal aliens living in the Windy City.

Published

on

Chicago’s vaunted “first gay Mayor,” Lori Lightfoot, signed an executive order Tuesday to divert coronavirus relief money to illegal aliens living in the Windy City.

The mayor has made a special point to celebrate her “sanctuary city” rules giving cover to law breaking illegals and as much free stuff as she can find to throw at them. So, the idea of diverting coronavirus money to illegals and away from actual citizens is not a surprise from her.

According to the Daily Caller:

“This order is more than just an official decree, it is a statement of our values as a city and as Americans,” the Democratic mayor said during the press conference.

“Since COVID-19 first reached our city’s doorstep, we have been working around the clock to ensure all our residents are secure and supported, including our immigrant and refugee communities, who are among the most vulnerable to the impact of this pandemic,” Lightfoot continued.

22nd ward alderman Michael Rodriguez was thrilled with the order, naturally. The alderman who seems to think he represents Mexico, called illegals “our family.”

“Not all of Chicago’s residents qualify for federal stimulus checks, state unemployment insurance or other economic assistance due to their documentation status,” (22nd ward alderman Michael) Rodriguez said. “These Chicagoans are vital community members who work in various industries and help our great city to thrive every day.”

“These Chicagoans are our family members, co-workers, neighbors and friends. I applaud the Mayor for standing with undocumented individuals and families to ensure their eligibility for any economic assistance offered by the City of Chicago during this global pandemic,” he added.

In her press release, Lightfoot bragged about kow towing to illegals:

Passed the Accountability on Communication and Transparency (ACT) Ordinance, which officially terminates ICE’s access to Chicago Police Department databases related to civil immigration enforcement activities and reaffirms the City’s commitment not to cooperate with or facilitate any ICE effort to target Chicago’s immigrant families.

As per usual, Democrats bend over backwards for criminals while taking support away from real Americans.

Illegal Aliens are Now Demanding to be Paid the Same $1,200 Coronavirus $$ as Citizens

Advocates for illegals are demanding that Trump give illegal aliens the same $1,200 coronavirus relief check that citizens are getting

Published

on

The president signed the Chinese virus relief bill into law last week giving millions of Americans a check for $1,200 each. Now advocates are demanding that the feds give illegal aliens the same amount.

The bill includes a $1,200 check for each American who makes under $75,000 a year. But the catch is that they have to have filed their income taxes under a legal social security number.

Obviously, this precludes illegals who do not have legal status. But leftist advocates are demanding that the government also give every illegal the same amount as proper citizens.

According to Breitbart News:

Open borders organizations like the George Soros-funded United We Dream, the National Immigrant Justice Center, and the National Immigration Law Center — all of which represent the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States — are pleading with the federal government to cut federal checks to illegal aliens who have Individual Tax Identification Number (ITINs).

Breitbart added:

“Everyone, regardless of immigration status, must have access to testing, medical care & financial relief. Congress must ensure that all Americans can focus on keeping their families & communities safe & healthy,” officials with the National Immigrant Justice Center posted online.

United We Dream added that federal checks should go to all people in the country regardless if they are illegals:

So, not only have illegals been stealing from the U.S. for a generation, but now they want us to willingly hand them checks as if they were real Americans!

Immigration and Customs Enforcement Using Its Deportation Flights To Bring Home Americans

Published

on

Americans have been brought home on the return legs of three separate removal flights to Central America. Since last Sunday, 273 Americans have flown back to the U.S. on removal flights, said Mary Houtmann, an ICE spokesperson.

“ICE will continue to work with the State Department to facilitate the safe return of U.S. citizens on future removal flight returns from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador throughout the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic,” ICE said in a press release statement.

TDC:

ICE Air Operations, the air transportation arm of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), has so far rescued 466 U.S. citizens stranded in the Northern Triangle region of Central America amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Following orders of final removal, ICE deported Salvadoran and Honduran nationals back to their home countries on Friday. On the return leg of these flights, the agency took aboard U.S. citizens who were stranded due to COVID-19 lockdowns, according to an ICE press release.

ICE on Friday flew home 130 U.S. citizens from Honduras via two different flights, and another 127 U.S. citizens from El Salvador — all of whom were able to occupy “Space Available” seats on the return leg of these repatriation flights.

These flights come after ICE flew back 209 U.S. citizens from El Salvador and Honduras earlier this month, bringing the total number of those rescued by the agency to 466. ICE says it will keep bringing Americans home, and left the door open to expanding the operation outside the Northern Triangle region. More

Two birds – one stone. Exceptional planning and use of resources. We deport the illegals and bring back the citizens. Win-Win for everyone! I hope they’re all going into quarantine.

UN Angry As Hundreds Of Europe-Bound Migrants Stopped And Sent Back

Published

on

The U.N. migration agency says Libya’s coast guard has caught over 400 Europe-bound migrants off the country’s Mediterranean coast and delivered them to the capital of Tripoli.

Breitbart:

CAIRO (AP) — Libya’s coast guard intercepted over 400 Europe-bound migrants off the country’s Mediterranean coast and returned them to the capital of Tripoli over the past 24 hours, the UN migration agency said Sunday.

The International Organization for Migration tweeted that 301 migrants on three boats were intercepted on Saturday and brought back to Tripoli. Another 105 migrants on two boats were intercepted on Sunday.

It said most of the migrants were taken to detention centres in Libya, where there are “serious concerns over their safety.”

Some migrants managed to escape at the disembarkation point, as the boats were brought back to shore, the IOM said.

“It is unacceptable for this to continue despite repeated calls to put an end to the return of vulnerable people to detention and abuse,” said Safa Msehli, a spokeswoman for the IOM.

Libya, which descended into chaos following the 2011 uprising that toppled and killed longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi, has emerged as a major transit point for African and Arab migrants fleeing war and poverty to Europe. More

The UN serves no valuable purpose for the betterment of nations and therefore should be completely disbanded. The Wuhan Virus National Emergency in the United States is the perfect time to close down the UN and send all members of the UN home giving them 5 days to get out.

Why are we still funding the UN, seeing as the invasion of Europe and the West is one of its main objectives?
