Greyhound changes policy to prevent ICE from dropping off thousands of migrants in their stations

For years, it’s been standard operating procedure for U.S. authorities to drop off illegal immigrants at bus stations when the local charitable organizations are too full to accept more of them. But the recent dramatic increase in the number of migrants crossing the border has forced Greyhound Lines Inc. to change its policies. Now, only those with a ticket are allowed to enter their stations.

“Our priority is to safely and efficiently get customers to their destinations,” Greyhound spokeswoman Crystal Booker said in a statement. She cited an “unprecedented increase in individuals” without tickets entering their stations as a reason for the new policy.

My Take

There are plenty of people to blame for this. First and foremost, the migrants themselves, driven by leftist propaganda and encouragement by open borders progressives, must take the bulk of the blame. They were told they would get taken care of if they could bypass the legal immigration and asylum request systems, and they believed it. Second, the President’s administration has been woefully inept at handling the border security crisis. Some will point to the lack of a wall and blame Democrats for the problem, but the government shutdown and subsequent battle over the President’s national emergency declaration didn’t happen until after the midterm elections.

Where was the outrage over the Democrats bullying the GOP when the GOP had control of the House, Senate, and White House for two years?

I understand that most conservative sites are scared to say anything bad about the President, but he promised us a wall and he has failed to deliver. If you say, “that’s on Congress,” then I’m assuming you’re giving Congress all the credit for the tax cuts the President signed. No, despite the selective memory of most, you can’t credit the President with everything Congress does that he signs then blame Congress for everything the President wasn’t able to push them to do.

The President has done many positive things, which I have written about here in the past, but let’s be intellectually honest with ourselves. On this issue, someone gave him bad advice to wait for the wall and he decided to take that advice instead of pressing the issue. We are a crowdfunded conservative news site that relies on the generosity of our readers, but if you’re hoping to support a GOP-loving, Trump-can-do-no-wrong news outlet, we’re not it. We call it how we see it with conservatism and America’s well-being in mind. Neither the President nor GOP has acted on behalf of Americans in stopping the crisis at the border. This is why despite having full control, illegal immigration has increased dramatically since Republicans took over.

The only ones not to blame for any of this is Greyhound. They’re doing what’s best for their customers. As a private company, their rights must be protected. Anyone who tries to force them to allow illegal immigrants into their stations without a ticket is being unAmerican.

Asylum agreement with El Salvador is silly

Asylum agreement with El Salvador is silly

The Trump administration has come to an “asylum cooperative agreement” with El Salvador that means anyone who passes through the nation must have been rejected asylum there in order to apply for asylum in the United States. Acting Homeland Security Director Kevin McAleenan signed the agreement Friday.

Unlike similar agreements in the works with Mexico and Guatemala, this one makes no sense. To understand why, look at a map.

El Salvador

Keep in mind, migrants FROM El Salvador would not be affected by this agreement since it would be El Salvador from which they’re seeking asylum. This means the agreement will only apply to those who go out of their way to cut through El Salvador from Honduras, which will be effectively zero. Even those who do will claim they went through Honduras to Guatemala, so the agreement is meaningless.

But it’s actually worse than meaningless. Every move the administration makes to secure the border will be viewed through a critical judicial lens. By signing an agreement with El Salvador, a nation rife with violence, it makes other agreements vulnerable as well. We do not need to be wasting time in court battles over an agreement that will have no practical effects because doing so allows th activist judiciary another opportunity to strike at effective agreements such as the one in place with Mexico and the one in the works with Guatemala.

This was a symbolic effort, one that is not only unnecessary but also puts real efforts at risk. I back the President’s plays on the border the vast majority of the time, but this one makes absolutely no sense.

Illegal immigrant convicted of killing NFL player has additional years added to sentence

Illegal immigrant convicted of killing NFL player has additional years added to sentence

A Guatemalan national who has reentered the country illegally at least twice was convicted of killing an NFL player and his Uber driver. Now, a federal judge has added 42 months to his prison sentence for illegally reentering the country.

Manuel Orrego-Zavala, 38, swerved and struck Jeffrey Monroe’s vehicle after he had pulled over because Indianapolis Colt’s linebacker Edwin Jackson was feeling sick. Both men were killed instantly. He was sentenced to 16 years in prison. When that sentence is complete, he will be transferred to a federal penitentiary where he will serve the additional 3.5 years.

U.S. District Chief Judge Jane E. Magnus-Stinson handed down the sentence this week.

Fox News host Shannon Shannon Bream discussed the sentence with U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler as well as ways illegal immigration laws must be enforced to prevent further crimes committed against American citizens.

Migrant surge lessens, allowing criminal apprehensions at border to rise

Migrant surge lessens allowing criminal apprehensions at border to rise

The number of migrants and asylum seekers crossing the border to be willfully apprehended by border patrol agents has been on a sharp decline since May. Conversely, the number of smugglers, formerly deported criminals, and potential terrorists being apprehended by border patrol has gone up in the same time period.

Resources have been strained for months as border patrol contends with the masses of humanity flooding the border seeking asylum. But efforts by Mexican law enforcement, hot weather, and changes in asylum policies have reduced the number of people making it across the border.

With the reduced need to do paperwork and cater to the migrants, border patrol agents have been allowed to do their pressing work of securing the border and locating illegal immigrants who do not want to be found.

Migration Flow Down but Border Security Events on the Rise

https://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/local-media-release/migration-flow-down-border-security-events-rise-us-border-patrol-agentsEL PASO, Texas – Reduced border crossing numbers aided by efforts of the Mexican government have allowed U.S. Border Patrol Agents from El Paso Sector to reemphasize traditional activities, resulting in drug seizures and criminal apprehensions along the West Texas and New Mexico borders.

On September 12, during routine activities, Border Patrol Agents assigned to the Alamogordo Station Highway 54 Checkpoint discovered three bundles of heroin with an approximate weight of 9 lbs. Both driver and passenger were taken into custody and turned over to the Drug Enforcement Administration along with the heroin.

During a separate incident near Ft. Hancock Station, Border Patrols Agents received a citizen report of possible illegal alien activity. Responding Agents encountered a U.S. Citizen who was wanted for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender in Austin. Further records checks revealed an extensive criminal history, including a conviction for Sexual Assault. The subject was turned over to Hudspeth County Sheriff’s Office for extradition.

Opinion

File this under “duh.” Of course border patrol is able to apprehend more criminal illegal immigrants when they’re not spending so much time passing out diapers and filling out paperwork for migrants. We’ve long said the biggest threat from the migrant surge isn’t the migrants themselves but the criminals they aid and abed by drawing attention away from border patrol’s mission to keep the borders secure.

This also means Mexico deserves huge kudos from patriots who may have been skeptical about their desire to stop the flow of migrants crossing our borders. They’ve kept their promise and slowed the flow dramatically before migrants are able to step foot on U.S. soil.

The fight is far from over. As weather cools and migrants attempt another surge, it will be imperative for Mexico to keep up the pressure and for the administration to do everything in its power to dissuade attempts to cross the border. Congress isn’t going to help until Republicans can take back control of the House. Until then, it’s up to the White House to keep us safe.

Quote

“With this temporary reduction of migration flow at the border, our Agents are adding consequences to those involved in criminal activity, resulting in increased interdictions of people being smuggled, detention of criminals, and seizure of narcotics.” – Gloria Chavez

Final Thoughts

This news runs contrary to the Democrats’ narrative that border patrol’s job is not being hampered by Congressional policies or their push for open borders. Now that they’re processing fewer migrants, they’re actually catching many more bad guys.
