Border patrol agents save family from
Rio Grande attempting to flee Mexico

New York Post, by Bob Fredericks

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 2/12/2019 8:40:44 AM

Border Patrol agents rescued a family trying to enter Texas by crossing the Rio Grande, saving adults and several children from the river. Photos taken from the Mexican side of the river in the town of Piedras Negras show agents in an airboat in the river hauling children and two adults aboard after they were nearly swept away by swift currents. The desperate family, believed to be from Honduras, was then taken into custody Sunday and given medical treatment. Border officials said they saw an abrupt drop-off in illegal crossings during the holiday season — but the number of Central

Why were they taken into custody and given medical treatment? Drop them back off on the Mexican side.

Not going to gratify the Post´s headline writers for their click bait spin.

"Fleeing Mexico"? Yet "believed to be from Honduras"?

See how brazen the headline spin has gotten? They assume most readers won´t even read the first sentences of the article when they write the headlines now.

Typical lying Enemedia story. "Fleeing Mexico" is actually invading the USA illegally.

Should have dumped them on the Mexican side, IMMEDIATELY.

They would not let kids drown. They are mostly good people, not the demons the democrats label them. They can´t enter Mexico, they could/would be arrested and jailed for violating Mexico´s tough immigration laws. So they rescue them and bring them into the US. Now the "refugees" get to stay per rulings of the federal judiciary. Trump tried to arrange for all sanctuary seekers to be held in Mexico but the Obama judges stopped that.

If they were willing to let the family drown, the press would crucify ICE, the suburban soccer moms would be appalled, and the democrats would demolish what little border protection ICE is currently allowed to provide.

You´re all busy protesting that fraudulent border protection bill that congress sent to the white house, aren´t you?

The agency on Tuesday said officers working at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge cargo facility in Texas intercepted the truck that held 906 pounds of meth worth $12.7 million. The discovery was made on Feb. 16 after imaging equipment and dogs used to inspect the truck revealed 350 packages of what appeared to be methamphetamine hidden within the trailer. Officers arrested the 42-year-old Mexican citizen who was driving the truck and turned him over to

Don’t mind the cold. Spring has sprung in Texas, with wildflower season getting an early pop this year following months of wet and dreary weather. The above average rainfall Texas got in the fall and winter months coupled with unseasonably warm temperatures will translate to a rather impressive wildflower season, says Andrea DeLong-Amaya, director of horticulture at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center in Austin.The state’s iconic bluebonnets were already seen sprouting in Austin as early as three weeks ago, along with delicate pink redbuds and grape-colored Texas mountain laurels, some of the more than 5,000 species of wildflowers in

As expected, many of the "blue states" are challenging President Trump in the 9th Circuit. Again, it´s not a shock for those who understand "judge shopping." The states are California, New York, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oregon, and Virginia.So let the lawsuit go forward and we will see what happens. In the meantime, the leaders of the aforementioned states are facing their own internal problems, as we saw in this report a few weeks ago: Texas is the No. 1 state people move trucks to, with states like Florida, South

To prove that there´s a border emergency, President Trump must stop eating omelets! Ridiculous, you might say. And yet, on this morning´s New Day, CNN´s John Avlon, Alisyn Camerota and Jeff Toobin mocked President Trump for eating an omelet, somehow suggesting it debunks the existence of an emergency. After displaying a photo of Trump at a Mar-a-Lago omelet bar, the trio engaged in this banter:JOHN AVLON: While ´emergency´ is not defined in this statute, the dictionary definition of emergency certainly doesn´t fit this. And this weekend, he´s at Mar-a-Lago at the omelet bar, also not exactly communicating urgency. CAMEROTA: Nothing

The U.S. Transportation Department announced Tuesday it would attempt to cancel $929 million in federal grant funds for California’s troubled high-speed rail project. The move marks an escalation in the war between President Trump and California in the days since Gov. Gavin Newsom announced a rethinking of the bullet train project after years of cost overruns. The Transportation Department also announced it was “actively exploring every legal option to seek the return from California of $2.5 billion in federal funds.” It’s unclear whether it has the legal authority to do so, and California would probably oppose such a move.In a

A lot of Americans are justifiably angry that disgraced FBI official Andrew McCabe is doing a book tour rather than a stretch in some federal penitentiary. He has committed perjury on multiple occasions, participated in an attempt to alter the outcome of a national election, and colluded with other rogue bureaucrats to remove a duly elected president from power. But there is a bright and shiny silver lining to this dingy cloud of deep state skullduggery: Donald Trump still resides in the White House while Hillary Clinton stumbles around her Chappaqua mansion in a muumuu hugging a fifth of Glenfiddich.
