Customs and Border Protection in the El Paso sector is calling for help. They’re being overwhelmed by the sheer mass of migrants crossing the border and claiming asylum. As one border patrol agent noted, they’re seeing a 500% increase in apprehensions compared to this time last year.
“It’s staggering,” McAllen City Manager Roy Rodriguez said. “Really, we’ve never seen anything like this before.”
It's time to close the border. https://t.co/8xJT8BdgBz

It seems the majority of the fight for border security is about the wall. While the wall will help, it’s neither fast nor comprehensive enough to address the problem that is present in the here and now. We need facilities to house the massive increase of illegal immigrants coming over and claiming asylum. Then, we need more people to handle the situation and protect the border. Right now, CBP is undermanned and lacking in the necessary resources to keep us safe.
It’s not just about American citizens. As long as we’re allowing these people to come across our borders, we have a responsibility to make sure they’re safe as well. This may be an unpopular opinion, but it’s the reality of how America is supposed to act. It behooves us to keep them safe and secure in order to keep ourselves safe and secure. By releasing them into the interior where many of them have nothing with which to work, the likelihood they’ll turn to crime is dramatically increased.
Legislative changes must be made at a massive scale as well. We cannot continue the broken policies that were designed for a time when asylum requests were manageable with current resources. Instead of limiting beds and shelter, we need to increase it dramatically. Instead of giving them freedom and a request to appear for their hearing, we need to be able to hold them, expedite the hearing, and repatriate them with their home nation if they are not granted asylum.
This surge is only going to get worse. With the “mother of all caravans” forming now in Honduras, we can’t wait around for the wall to get built. While it’s being debated, actions must be taken immediately to address this issue. I’d say we need to do it before it becomes unmanageable, but it appears we’re already there.
“The surge numbers are just overwhelming the entire system.”
We need the wall, but it won’t come fast enough. Immediate action is needed. Fix the laws. Give more resources, manpower, and facilities to the border patrol. Start sending the message to Central America that there’s no free ride waiting for them here.
Will you help revive the American Conservative Movement?
Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our new GiveSendGo. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Truth Based Media
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
