Oklahoma is the only state where neither Obama nor Biden won even one county in the last election.
While most are focusing on Arizona, Georgia, and Texas’ new laws, look what Oklahoma has been doing!
🔹Oklahoma has passed a law in the state to: “incarcerate all illegal immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they want to get a green card and become an American citizen”. Most of the illegals literally scattered! HB 1804.
This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU. They said it would be a mistake. Guess what? Oklahoma did it anyway.
🔹Recently Oklahoma passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all illegals to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative purposes. Pelosi said it was unconstitutional SB 1102.
Guess what? Oklahoma did it anyway.
🔹Few realize that several weeks ago, they again, passed a law declaring Oklahoma a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives joining Texas, Montana, and Utah as the only states (so far) to do so.
MORE STATES are now likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Carolinas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida.
Save your confederate money, folks, it appears the South is about to rise again! HJR 1003
🔹Democrats and the Biden Regime have made bold steps to take away our guns. Oklahoma, last month, passed a law confirming people in this state have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles. That’s a setback for criminals, and the Liberals didn’t like it, BUT… Oklahoma did it anyway.
🔹Just this month, Oklahoma has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers’ license exams will be printed in English, and only English, and no other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple, folks.
By the way, the Liberals don’t like any of this either. Oklahoma is doing it anyway.
The following press release from the Office of Texas Governor Greg Abbott was issued today:
Governor Greg Abbott today issued an executive order authorizing and empowering the Texas National Guard and the Texas Department of Public Safety to apprehend immigrants who illegally cross the border between ports of entry and return them to the border. The Biden Administration’s decision to end Title 42 expulsions and the Remain-in-Mexico policy has led to historic levels of illegal crossings, with 5,000 migrants being apprehended over the July 4th weekend, creating a border crisis that has overrun communities along the border and across Texas.
“While President Biden refuses to do his job and enforce the immigration laws enacted by Congress, the State of Texas is once again stepping up and taking unprecedented action to protect Americans and secure our southern border,” said Governor Abbott. “The cartels have become emboldened and enriched by President Biden’s open border policies, smuggling in record numbers of people, weapons, and deadly drugs like fentanyl.”
As noted in the executive order, the Biden Administration “has abandoned the covenant, in Article IV, § 4 of the U.S. Constitution, that ‘[t]he United States . . . shall protect each [State in this Union] against Invasion,’ and thus has forced the State of Texas to build a border wall, deploy state military forces, and enter into agreements as described in Article I, § 10 of the U.S. Constitution to secure the State of Texas and repel the illegal immigration that funds the cartels.”
“I have authorized the Texas National Guard and Texas Department of Public Safety to begin returning illegal immigrants to the border to stop this criminal enterprise endangering our communities,” continued Governor Abbott. “As the challenges on the border continue to increase, Texas will continue to take action to address those challenges caused by the Biden Administration.”
Governor Abbott has taken significant action to secure the border in the wake of the federal government’s inaction. Those actions include:
🔹Securing $4 billion in funding for Texas’ border security efforts
🔹Launching Operation Lone Star and deploying thousands of National Guard soldiers and Texas Department of Public Safety troopers
🔹Arresting and jailing criminals trespassing or committing other state crimes along the southern border
🔹Allocating resources that include acquiring 1,700 unused steel panels to build the border wall in Texas
🔹Signing a law to make it easier to prosecute smugglers bringing people into Texas
🔹Signing 15 laws cracking down on human trafficking in Texas
🔹Signing a law enhancing penalties for the manufacturing and distribution of fentanyl
🔹Issuing a disaster declaration for the border crisis
🔹Issuing an executive order preventing non-governmental entities from transporting illegal immigrants
🔹Taking aggressive action to secure the border as President Biden ends Title 42 expulsions, including busing thousands of migrants to Washington, D.C.
🔹Signing memoranda of understanding between the State of Texas and the States of Chihuahua, Coahuila, Nuevo León, and Tamaulipas to enhance border security measures that will prevent illegal immigration from Mexico to Texas
🔹Activating the Joint Border Security Operations Center (JBSOC) and directing the Texas Department of Public Safety, Texas Military Department, and Texas Division of Emergency Management to coordinate Texas’ response to secure the border
🔹Creating DPS strike teams and establishing new vehicle inspection checkpoints targeting semi-trucks and other commercial motor vehicles.
The closest any Biden has appeared near the U.S.-Mexican Border while residing in the White House (as of this writing) was in July 2022. It was 145 miles away from the border in San Antonio, Texas. It wasn’t Joe who appeared. Nor was it Hunter. The dubious honor went to Jill Biden.
In Texas, Republican Mayra Flores won a special election for the 34th Congressional District in June.
That was a seat that Democrats had held for more than a century. The district, which stretches from San Antonio down to the Rio Grande Valley on the Texas-Mexico border, is mostly Hispanic.
So in July, Jill Biden flew into the Alamo City to tell a crowd of progressive Hispanics that the diversity of their community is “as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio, is your strength.”
“Did she just say that we being as unique as a breakfast taco is our strength?” Linda Castillo asked her friend, Catrina Chapa.
“No wonder we are ditching the Democrats,” Chapa responded as the ladies near them high-fived each other. People in the crowd noticed and felt insulted.
“First the Bidens put us in danger with an invasion of illegal aliens coming through the border and now they insult us by calling us Tacos,” Castillo responded.
Others noticed, including the National Association of Hispanic Journalists who called out Biden for her remarks in a statement, saying it “demonstrates a lack of cultural knowledge and sensitivity to the diversity of Latinos in the region.”
“NAHJ encourages Dr. Biden and her speech writing team to take the time in the future to better understand the complexities of our people and communities. We are not tacos. Our heritage as Latinos is shaped by a variety of diasporas, cultures and food traditions, and should not be reduced to a stereotype.”
Soon others joined in on Jill’s very own TACO-GATE.
“First there was ‘FJB.’ Then there was ‘Let’s Go Brandon,'” Chapa noted. “She just started her own ‘TACO-GATE” and the Bidens are going to learn you don’t call us Tacos. Never! Let the festivities begin.”
The levels of hypocrisy coming out of the mouths of corporate news media and Democrats continue to be enforced by their reaction to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ decision to fly illegal aliens to Martha’s Vineyard.
The propaganda and reactions from the left were so sanctimonious that some of the self-righteous socialists found themselves yanking their idiotic posts off of social media. Others changed their tampered reporting, but still continued deceptive narratives.
Here is one from NBC News they jerked off the internet within minutes:
Their duplicitous reactions were countered throughout the land—and online. The hills were alive with the sounds of hypocrisy.
Wearing an orange Corpus Christi Hooks baseball jersey, attorney Timothy D. Japhet was arrested and jailed August 13 near Del Rio, Texas for human trafficking.
Some reports indicate Japhet as an “immigration attorney and federally appointed magistrate. ” He was also cited with resisting arrest.
When Galveston County Constable (working on special assignment in Kinney County) Jimmy Fullen pulled Japhet over in a rental car, he discovered four adult male Mexican nationals with him.
The story Japhet told law enforcement was that when he pulled over off the highway to let his dog out to be relieved, these men told him they were construction workers needing a ride to work in Del Rio.
Fuller initially pulled Japhet over for failing to drive in one lane, but said constable’s deputy recalled Japhet would not turn the car off and said, “I haven’t done anything wrong” when told to exit the vehicle. Border Patrol Agents soon arrived.
“While attempting to place the male in custody he was yelling ‘I’m a Judge, I’m a Judge.’ Once I had the male subject in custody, I advised dispatch the male subject was an elected Judge he corrected me and said ‘No, I am an appointed Judge,’” Fullen wrote in his report.
Japhet claimed he was on his way to Eagle Pass with his dog to gamble at the casino. From Corpus Christi to Eagle Pass, it is unusual to drive through Del Rio enroute to the casino as it adds at least an additional half hour to the trip. Even from San Antonio to Eagle Pass it would be very uncommon to take the out of the way route through Del Rio.
Fullen has been working on the border area as part of Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star initiative to protect the southern border from the illegal alien invasion perpetrated by the Biden Administration.
Operation Lone Star has successfully made 18,711 criminal arrests through the deployment of state resources including Department of Public Safety (DPS) troopers.
Between June 1, 2011, and July 31, 2022, 259,000 illegal aliens were charged with more than 433,000 criminal offenses which included arrests for 800 homicide charges in Texas.
Japhet deemed Operation Lone Star both “unconstitutional” and “political,” suggesting he will wait for a federal grand jury or until his charges are dropped, which he said could occur in 90 days.
Constable Deputy Fullen posted about the arrest on Facebook post, but Japhet told some news organizations that he was not cited for resisting arrest, nor is he a “federally appointed immigration magistrate.”
The unofficial motto of the Lone Star State (used on keeping highways, parks, public and private events clean) is:
The Biden Administration, under the indirect direction of Barack Obama operatives, continue to undermine the security of American citizens with their latest law enforcement antic.
Not to be confused with county sheriffs throughout America, we have learned that the U.S. Marshal (USMS) Service is reportedly drafting a new policy significantly limiting the service’s ability to hold illegal aliens awaiting pickup by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Under this plan, U.S. Marshals would not be allowed to hold aliens for ICE on the authority of an immigration warrant or detainer under the new policy.
🔹ICE has refused to publish the number of detainers issued in 2021.
Under this new plan being developed, once the alien is processed, they must be released by the Marshal Service, even if ICE has asked for the alien to be detained.
The Washington Times reports that while the policy is still in the “draft” phase, at least one jurisdiction in Florida has already implemented it as a pilot program. A memo sent to Marshals in Fort Lauderdale this summer read:
Per our management staff, effective immediately, we will NOT house a prisoner based solely on an administrative immigration detainer.
We will relay the reason that the inmate is being released from USMS custody and that the USMS cannot hold the subject beyond the standard out-processing time, nor may we transport the subject for DHS.
The memo did mention the USMS’s ability to provide ICE with “a reasonable amount” of notice that they will be forced to release a criminal illegal alien. Still, considering the immigration enforcement hurdles put in place by the Biden Administration, it is unclear how quickly ICE will be able to act when notified.
ICE officers have expressed concern over the policy’s impact on immigration enforcement; however, some officers said a bigger worry is that such policies would be expanded to other federal law enforcement agencies, such as the Federal Bureau of Prisons, which detains and turns over to ICE even more aliens than the USMS.
The Washington Times states that the U.S. Marshals Service HQ confirmed that it is drafting a new policy.
“The proposed updates incorporate language clarifying the agency’s long-standing practice of not holding prisoners beyond a judicial order. The USMS is not authorized to hold prisoners beyond a judicial order requiring their release or the expiration of a sentence imposed,” the service said.
The service didn’t disclose what prompted the draft policy but said it considered the update a confirmation of current practices.
“No changes have been made to the policy limiting cooperation with ICE or any law enforcement entity,” the service said.
In addition to Fort Lauderdale, the U.S. Marshals have followed a similar sanctuary-style policy in the nation’s capital for nearly two years. This change followed a Federal Judge’s ruling that the USMS does not hold independent powers to enforce immigration laws but must carry out federal courts’ orders.
Because ICE is not part of the court system, and detainers are not issued under any court’s oversight – the judge ruled that Marshals “cannot justify holding an immigrant based on a detainer.” The court’s ruling was limited to the city limits of the District of Columbia.
Texas and Arizona have transported almost 10,000 illegal aliens from the US-Mexico border to Washington, D.C. on at least 104 buses so far.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, who along with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) refused President Trump’s request and offers to provide troops in Washington for the January 6, 2021 peaceful protest, is now begging for the D.C. National Guard to be activated indefinitely to assist with the issue she calls a “growing humanitarian crisis.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott says the buses are being sent to the nation’s capital to call attention to the immigration crisis at the southern border.
Abbott has invited Bowser and New York City Mayor Eric Adams to visit the border:
“As Governor, I invite you to visit our border region to see firsthand the dire situation that only grows more urgent with each passing day, and to meet with the local officials, who like yourselves, realize this matter deserves immediate federal action.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott
Abbott, the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), and the Texas National Guard are continuing to work together to secure the border, stop the smuggling of drugs, weapons, and people into Texas, and prevent, detect, and interdict transnational criminal behavior between ports of entry.
🔹Since the launch of Operation Lone Star, the multi-agency effort has led to more than 294,000 migrant apprehensions and more than 19,000 criminal arrests, with more than 16,000 felony charges reported.
🔹In the fight against fentanyl, Texas DPS has seized over 326 million lethal doses throughout the state.
🔹Texas has also transported over 6,700 migrants to the nation’s capital–and now New York City–since beginning the busing mission in April to provide much-needed relief to their overwhelmed border communities.
“Operation Lone Star continues to fill the dangerous gaps left by the Biden Administration’s refusal to secure the border,” a release from Abbott’s office stated. “Every individual who is apprehended or arrested and every ounce of drugs seized would have otherwise made their way into communities across Texas and the nation due to President Biden’s open border policies.”
“In addition to Washington, D.C., New York City is the ideal destination for these migrants, who can receive the abundance of city services and housing that Mayor Eric Adams has boasted about within the sanctuary city,” said Governor Abbott. “I hope he follows through on his promise of welcoming all migrants with open arms so that our overrun and overwhelmed border towns can find relief.”
“These people are wanting to go somewhere else. They’re not wanting to stay in Arizona,” said Morgan Carr, spokeswoman for Gov. Doug Ducey (R-AZ). “From what we’re seeing, they’re all primarily [headed to] the East Coast.”
Twenty-five percent of the illegal aliens who crossed the border into Arizona before hopping on a bus to Washington, D.C. said their final destination is New York. Other popular destinations include New Jersey and Florida.
Nearly 70 percent of the illegal immigrants who started their journey in Arizona were originally from Colombia. Another 15 percent were from Peru and eight illegal immigrants were from Russia.
“If Biden will not come to the border, we’re sending the border to Biden and his administration so that they can begin to grapple with the challenges that we’re dealing with,” Abbott said, adding, “But also, we will be looking for other locations like Delaware, Biden’s home state…The people in Delaware are going to see what the people in Texas are having to grapple with.”
“As soon as they have to deal with the real consequences of the crisis, they are up in arms calling for the National Guard when they are only dealing with a faction of what we have to deal with every single day. We’re going to keep sending those buses up there until they fully understand, and most importantly, until the Biden Administration does its job to enforce the laws concerning the border.”
DPS Lt. Chris Olivarez said that the communities along the border are completely overwhelmed with the relentless surge of illegal immigrants. He explained how Governor Abbott listened to the concerns of local officials with the migrant busing mission.
“I think it’s a great idea what Governor Abbott has done with inviting these mayors to Texas to see firsthand what we’re dealing with every day,” said Lt. Olivarez. “Some of these border communities have a population of 15,000 or 20,000 and they’re seeing 2,000 to 3,000 immigrants who are crossing every single day.”
On Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court handed Texas another victory in denying the Biden Administration’s request to stay a lower court’s vacatur of an unlawful Department of Homeland Security (DHS) memo.
🔹As a result, the Administration must continue to follow the law while it awaits further legal proceedings.
🔹This case arises out of a federal district court’s vacatur of a DHS immigration enforcement priorities memo.
🔹The judge concluded that memo is contrary to law, arbitrary and capricious, and procedurally unlawful for failing to go through notice-and-comment procedures.
🔹The core of the case is about certain immigration statutes, which say that DHS “shall” detain aliens with certain criminal convictions and those with final orders of removal.
🔹Rather than abide by these statutes, DHS chose to follow their own contrary directives, which don’t require detention of those aliens.
🔹After Texas won in federal district court, the Biden Administration sought a stay in the Court of Appeals, which was denied.
🔹The Administration then went to the Supreme Court, which denied their request and set oral argument on the merits for December 2022.
“The Biden Administration just can’t help itself from breaking the law—especially immigration law,” said Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton. “They have begged every court up to the Supreme Court to let them off the hook, and every time the court says ‘no.’ Today the Supreme Court made clear that, while we prepare for oral argument this winter, the Biden Administration must detain illegal aliens with criminal convictions. It’s the right legal decision, and it’s what’s best for Texas and our nation.”
Former FBI Agent, Counter-Terrorism Instructor Forewarned of Islamic Attacks and Intrusion in U.S.
One Year After the Horrific Biden Blunder in Afghanistan, America is in More Danger
A year after the Biden Administration abandoned as many as 9,000 (as revealed by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee) American citizens in Afghanistan following their botched withdrawal, America remains in far more danger than most citizens realize.
Within days of one of the darkest mishaps in American history, Biden officials directed federal agencies to quickly scrub their websites of official reports detailing the $82.9 billion in military equipment and training provided to the Afghan security forces since 2001.
The scrubbed audits and reports included detailed accounting of what the U.S. had provided to Afghan forces, down to the number of night vision devices, hand grenades, Black Hawk helicopters, and armored vehicles.
Reports showed there were:
🔹208 aircraft and helicopters
🔹75,000 war vehicles – including 22 Humvees, 50,000 tactical vehicles and nearly 1,000 mine resistant vehicles
🔹600,000 weapons – including 350,000 M4 and M16 rifles, 60,000 machine guns, and 25,000 grenade launchers.
While Joe Biden, as Vice President to Barack Obama, continues to obey his ex-boss, he blatantly ignores the deadly lessons of illegal immigration and ignoring hostile Muslims entering America.
As we approach the two million a year mark for illegal aliens entering the United States who are systematically dispersed by the Biden Regime on a daily basis, crime and terrorism grows in America.
The American Center for Law and Justice, a religious liberty watchdog, reports numerous cases in recent years where teaching of Islam has moved from general knowledge of the religion to indoctrination of school children.
On its website the ACLJ cites some assignments that have raised concern from parents, like:
🔹Middle-school children in Tennessee being told to write “Allah is the only God” and recite the Islamic conversion creed.
🔹An assignment in a Wisconsin public school told students to “Pretend you are Muslim.”
🔹In Walton County, Georgia, which manifested itself in a hone parent found objectionable: “Allah is the (fill in the blank) worshiped by Jews & Christians
After the June, 2016 terrorist attack on an Orlando, FL nightclub left 49 dead, an ex-FBI instructor, John Guandolo, noted the Obama “FBI leadership has systematically refused to look at and teach Sharia to its agents because it is getting its advice on Islam from Muslims who are hostile to us and our system of government.”
Guandolo blasted then FBI Director James Comey, “Fifty Americans are dead, the FBI had the killer in their sights and let him go, and the FBI director is okay with this.”
“Not knowing something that is a requirement of your profession—like an FBI director not understanding that Sharia is the key to understanding the entire global war—is unprofessional,” he said.
Donald J. Trump, then a candidate for the presidency, chimed in:
“We’re importing radical Islamic terrorism into the West through a failed immigration system and through an intelligence community held back by our president. Even our own FBI director has admitted that we cannot effectively check the backgrounds of people we’re letting into America.”
“They have put political correctness above common sense, above your safety, and above all else. I refuse to be politically correct,” Trump said.
“The Islamic movement has been focused, since prior to 9/11, on primarily the Islamic world,” said Guandolo, also a counter-terrorism instructor, and founder of UnderstandingTheThreat.com.
“They’ve been focused, as you’ve seen, in Syria, and in Libya, in eastern Africa, in the Middle East. They’ve been focused on getting Islamic countries to adhere to sharia and begin imposing sharia outside of its borders,” he explained, referring to the Islamic legal code.
“That’s the focus. What we’re watching right now is the turn toward the West,” he said, citing terrorist attacks popping up in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, which have all been “individual acts of jihad,” until now.
“What you’re gonna see is, multiply Orlando, and Beslan, and Mumbai – and, by the way, since they’re working with the Marxist-socialist collaborators like Black Lives Matter and others, many Soros-funded groups and other groups, you’re gonna see a national level, where the violence will raise significantly, and you’ll see things precipitated by other events,” Guandolo warned.
In 2016, when Steve Bannon asked Guandolo if a FBI counter-terrorist unit was “incompetent,” or “hamstrung” by political correctness, Guandolo said, “It’s a combination of both, actually. You’ve got the agents busting their butts on the street level, but you’ve got the leadership of the FBI who refuse to look at this strategically.”
“And it is because, on orders from the White House — I know even under Director Mueller’s tenure there, before Director Comey — they were forced to work with organizations like the Islamic Society of North America and others, Muslim Public Affairs Council, which are Hamas — Muslim Brotherhood organizations,” Guandolo continued.
He explained that Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is a “Hamas group.”
“They were created by the Muslim Brotherhood’s Palestine Committee, which was Hamas in the United States, “ Guandolo explained. “So they’re not merely a Muslim Brotherhood group. Hamas is an inherent part of the Muslim Brotherhood, and CAIR was the full Hamas organization created in the United States.”
He said the government has not “identified the larger threat,” which is that “the teaching these guys are getting is all from the Islamic centers.”
“The majority, eighty-plus percent of the Islamic centers’ mosques in the United States are teaching this,” he said. “All of the major Islamic organizations, per evidence in the largest terrorism financing and Hamas trial in American history, demonstrates clearly that these groups are jihadi organizations.”
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) published their early 2021 report, they stated that the illegal immigrants arrested by ICE during fiscal year (FY) 2020 had an average of four criminal convictions or pending criminal charges each.
The Biden Administration first year figures released by ICE, was a dire message.
🔹ICE conducted 103,603 administrative arrests in FY 2020. Of those arrested, 90% had criminal convictions or charges at the time of the arrest.
🔹The arrested immigrants had a total of more than 374,000 convictions and charges, an average of four per person.
🔹In FY 2019, ICE agents arrested more than 143,000 people in the interior.
🔹The most convictions or criminal charges pending against them were for driving under the influence (74,000), followed by drug offenses (67,000).
🔹Only 1,900 had been charged or convicted of homicide.
Convictions or criminal charges of the aliens arrested also included:
🔹1,800 homicide-related crimes
🔹10,000 sex crimes
In FY 2020, ICE successfully deported 185,884 immigrants:
🔹4,276 were known or suspected gang members
🔹675 of whom are believed to be members of the brutal gang MS-13.
Does the Alamo City Government Encourage Illegal Immigration?
The George Soros Connection
The death count reached 53 for over 70 illegal immigrants abandoned off Quintana Road in south San Antonio in a tractor-trailer during extreme Texas heat Monday.
Update: A 45-year-old driver of the truck, Homero Zamorano, originally tried to pass himself as one of the victims. Police say he was high on meth.
Juan Francisco D’Luna-Bilbao and Juan Claudio D’Luna-Mendez, were arrested after police traced the truck’s information to their home.
“It was a hot oven in there,” one San Antonio police officer told CleverJourneys. “They were baking and just left for dead sometime before 6 p.m. and found by a city employee who heard screaming.”
“They didn’t even have water,” the officer continued. “We believe they came up (Interstate Highway) 35 from Laredo. How they circumvented inspections we do not know.”
“With this bought-out chief (William McManus), socialist major (Ron Nirenberg) and (George) Soros owned DA (Joe Gonzales) they will just try to sweep it under the rug again,” noted the officer. “Sheriff deputies are stuck with (County Judge Nelson) Wolff so there you go. It’s as if they work together to encourage illegals here. Between them and the big Biden money that is exchanged between these charities, hotels, and others, it’s no wonder.”
Texas Governor Greg Abbott, tweeted, “These deaths are on Biden. They are a result of his deadly open border policies.”
🔹Since Joe Biden took office, after what millions of Americans believe was a corrupt and fraudulent 2020 election, at least 800 such deaths have occurred–the highest since U.S. Customs Border Protection (CBP) began keeping track in 1998.
🔹Because of Biden’s wreckless border policies, CBP reports the Border Patrol has performed 27,111 “search-and-rescue missions” for illegal aliens. During President Trump’s last year in office, there were 5,071 such missions.
Among those who died in the tractor-trailer abandoned Monday, 22 were from Mexico, seven from Guatemala and two from Honduras, Roberto Velasco Álvarez, head of the North America department in Mexico’s Foreign Relations Department, tweeted.
City police and county deputies sought the help of nearby law enforcement and emergency responders in adjacent counties to aid in managing the injured and dead.
SAN ANTONIO’S BLEAK RECORD
🔹In June 2018, law enforcement found 54 illegal aliens inside a tractor-trailer near the San Antonio International Airport.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Special Agent in Charge Shane Folden said they were smuggled in from Mexico, Guatelmala, El Salvador and Brazil.
“These criminal organizations are comprised of extremely callous individuals who disregard human life and make large profits on treating humans as a commodity,” Folden said.
🔹On July 23, 2017, San Antonio and Police Chief William McManus drew negative national attention when ten people were found dead and 30 injured inside a semitrailer overnight in a Walmart parking lot, also on the city’s south side.
While officers and emergency responders were concerned and working to respond to the injured, suddenly SUVs and vans arrived and whisked some of the illegal aliens away in an organized escape. McManus nonchalantly blew it off.
U.S. Homeland Security officers were startled when McManus told the media, “It happens all the time.”
🔹Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit in Bexar County on Jan. 15, 2021 calling for the San Antonio police Chief William McManus to be removed from office.
🔹The Office of Attorney General investigators discovered that high-ranking city officials were told “the Mayor does not want ICE called,” and that Ron Nirenberg later described their release without being handed over to federal immigration officials as a “Christmas gift.”
🔹Insiders at City Hall, Bexar County Courthouse, and Commissioner’s Court indicate the city council, police department, district attorney’s office and county employees indicate the “political machine” were rightfully worried, but basically bought their time.
🔹A 2017 press release from the San Antonio Police Officers Association explains what occurred at December 2017 debacle:
“On that night, in possible violation of established procedures and State and Federal law pertaining to suspected human smuggling and trafficking cases, the Chief released twelve undocumented immigrants into the City of San Antonio without properly and thoroughly identifying them.”
“For several years now, San Antonio Police Officers have been well trained on how to handle and process human smuggling and trafficking cases. SAPD also works with Homeland Security through the Federal Joint Task Force to specifically target and arrest individuals involved in these crimes. On December 23rd, when twelve people were stopped and detained under suspicion of smuggling and being in the country illegally, the Officers on scene began following the law and established procedures. Then, Chief McManus arrived.”
SAPOA says City Manager is wrong protecting the chief
“When Chief McManus arrived unexpectedly on scene, in civilian clothing and with a lawyer from a non-profit organization, Officers briefed the Chief on the situation and their actions, which included notifying Homeland Security. The Chief immediately changed their orders: they were not to identify the individuals or check their immigration status (as Texas law allows local law enforcement to do) and they were not to involve Homeland Security (as per Joint Task Force procedures).”
“When an agent from Homeland Security did arrive, the Chief informed him that his assistance was not needed. After transporting the individuals to police headquarters, the Chief allowed the non-profit attorney complete access to them before ever allowing even one of the Special Victims Unit (SVU) detectives to speak to them. The Chief then stated that none of the detainees were to be processed through SAPD databases and ordered them released. At this point, SVU Supervisors were so shocked they requested the order be put in writing.”
“The twelve detainees were then escorted out of the back of police headquarters and released into the city. Afterwards, the Chief told the media that the case was based on a “fluid situation,” and that “it’s not necessarily how every case will be handled going forward.” SAPOA believes that the Chief’s actions were political, not in line with established State and Federal laws and procedures, and may have risked the safety of the community.”
“We have called upon Mayor Ron Nirenberg, City Manager Sheryl Sculley, and the City Council to investigate or at least have the Chief answer for his actions that night. Up to now, they have done nothing. Fortunately, the Texas Attorney General launched an investigation in January and has ordered the entire City government to preserve all evidence and present any and all documents, videos, and cellular phone data, regarding the December 23rd incident.”
🔹In October 2016, Nirenberg condemned San Antonio police officers who wore MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN caps while taking photos with presidential candidate Donald J. Trump at the airport. McManus reprimanded them.
THE BIDEN CONNECTION
Within a week after Joe Biden’s inauguration, federal officials began transporting some of the overflow illegal aliens to Laredo and El Paso to San Antonio, according to Congressman Henry Cuellar.
Initially, Mayor Ron Nirenberg tried to divert the narrative, claiming he was not aware of any plans to bus asylum seekers to his city.
“We have not received any word about asylum seekers being transported to the city via buses, as some reports have indicated,” Nirenberg said. “We know many people make their way here on their own, but we have not heard yet any reports of people being transported by bus.”
He was asked if a downtown shelter is being prepared to assist undocumented immigrants who may be brought here.
“Obviously, we’re going to meet needs as they arise,” said Nirenberg.
SOUTH TEXAS DEADLY HISTORY
🔹July 2021. Marc Anthony Bane, 45, of Porter, and Tara Rene Dillion, 33, of nearby Conroe, just northwest of Houston, were arrested for transporting 89 illegal aliens in a stolen 18-wheeler on July 13, 2021.
According to the charges, Bane and Dillon arrived at the Texas Border Patrol (BP) checkpoint on Interstate Highway 35 approximately 29 miles north of Laredo in a tractor-trailer.
A service K-9 dog alerted officers, who searched the vehicle and trailer and found 89 undocumented non-U.S. citizens in there.
🔹2018 in Laredo. The heat was on and against human trafficking as President Trump’s Border Wall and aggressive illegal immigration policies forced smuggling attempts to be thwarted.
In just a two week period, such smuggling attempts were greatly reduced after Laredo, Texas, border agents found 29 illegal aliens in one trailer, followed by 76 people lying on the floor or crouching against the walls of a tractor-trailer rig a week later.
🔹May 14, 2003. One of the deadliest smuggling incidents occurred along Highway 87 in Victoria, Texas where 70 people were trapped inside the trailer of an 18-wheeler.
In the end, 19 of those 70 died from dehydration.
Fourteen people were indicted by federal prosecutors, including truck driver Tyrone Williams, who was initially sentenced to life in prison.
In total, Williams was convicted on 58 counts of conspiracy, harboring, and transporting illegal immigrants.
In 2011, Williams was given a new sentence of nearly 34 years in prison after a federal appeals court overturned the multiple life sentences he received. Williams was the only defendant who faced a possible death sentence.
🔹July 2017. A dozen migrants were discovered in Houston in a box truck. Some as young as 16-years-old, undocumented and had paid for illegal transport into Texas from various Latin American countries.
Prosecutors indicated they were in the truck for 12 hours with no food and little water. The Penske rental truck was in the parking lot of a strip center on Harwin in southwest Houston and held 10 men, one woman, and a teen.
