~ “I hope we once again have reminded people that man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: as government expands, liberty contracts.” Ronald Reagan.
Fox News Sunday, Texas Governor Rick Perry told Fox News’ Brit Hume that a deployment of the National Guard along the Texas-Mexico border would make up for Border Patrol agents “distracted” by caring for the influx of Central American immigrants and function as a prohibitive visual to those contemplating the trip…
…I’m currently sitting in the parking lot of St Joseph’s Church in Fontana, CA. I just confirmed with church press secretary John Andrews that a DHS bus dropped off 40 illegal immigrants, one of them a sick infant that was taken to the hospital. Andrews did not know where the bus came from, but said the individuals were processed at a border patrol facility located somewhere near the border with Mexico.…
Texas Governor, Rick Perry, has rejected an offer by Barack Obama to meet Wednesday at Austin-Bergstrom Airport for a handshake because addressing Obama’s manufactured humanitarian crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border during a five-minute photo op requires more than a handshake.
‘…I appreciate the offer to greet you at Austin-Bergstrom Airport, but a quick handshake on the tarmac will not allow for a thoughtful discussion regarding the humanitarian and national security crises enveloping the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas,’ Perry wrote in a letter to Obama. ‘I would instead offer to meet with you at any time during your visit to Texas for a substantive meeting to discuss this critical issue.…’
HOUSTON, Texas — Breitbart Texas obtained internal federal government photos depicting the conditions of foreign children warehoused by authorities on U.S. soil on Wednesday night. Thousands of illegal immigrants have overrun U.S. border security and their processing centers in Texas along the U.S./Mexico border. Unaccompanied minors, including young girls under the age of 12, are making the dangerous journey from Central America and Mexico, through cartel-controlled territories, and across the porous border onto U.S. soil.
The photos illuminate the conditions of the U.S. Border Patrol’s processing centers, as well as the overwhelming task Border Patrol is facing.
Breitbart Texas Border Expert and Contributing Editor Sylvia Longmire reviewed the photos.
‘Given the deteriorating security and economic conditions in the Central American countries where most of these children and adult immigrantscame from, it’s hard to understand how DHS didn’t see this coming,’ Longmire said….
…Many of the minors at one facility — which only opened on Friday — are reportedly being sickened by the food — and throwing the food in the trash.
Tony Banegas, consul of Honduras to Arizona, told local media outlet KPHO-TV, ‘This morning they switched to burritos, but they complained the eggs were cold. They couldn’t eat them and even made them sick. They complained they had a burrito but had to throw it in the trash.’ He said, ‘What happened today is they added four showers. Some of the girls were able to take their first shower in 10 days. They’re planning to build 60 in the next few days.’
According to CBS Houston, ‘vendors are being contracted to provide nutritional meals.’ In addition to this, recreational activities and counseling programs will be provided to the children at an unknown cost. …
“The American citizen of Arab origin Rafic Mohammad Labboun Allaboun, a suspected member of the terrorist network Hezbollah, was arrested Saturday night in Merida through an operation conducted by the National Migration Institute (INM) and the State Police.
Labboun Allaboun was arrested in a house located in the street 41-B, between 56 and 5 of the colony Francisco de Montejo in the west part of the city. At the moment of the arrest, the suspect identified himself with a fake passport from the government of Belize….
…In the same operation, George Abdalah Elders and Justin Yasser Safa were also arrested; both Belizeans citizens with valid migratory forms (FM1) issued by the INM.
Official sources stated that intelligence agencies from the United States were tracking down this group, allegedly part of the terrorist network of Hezbollah, this cell operates in Mexico and Central America…”
Rumor has it that Rafic Mohammad Labboun Allaboun is linked to the September 11th attacks. It should be noted that he has already been deported to the U.S. The other two remain in the custody of Mexican officials.
While these arrests are a good thing, at the same time, they highlight the urgency of securing our borders.
