Train wrecks derail immigrants
Herald (Brownsville TX), by Ty Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/13/2014 4:50:10 PM

Border apprehensions reportedly decreased last week, but there aren’t any indications that the tide of Central Americans pouring across the border has ebbed. U.S. Rep. Filemon Vela said Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told him in a briefing July 8 that there was a decline in apprehensions ahead of his trip to Guatemala, one of the nations where the bulk of the immigrants are coming from. (Snip) but say they have heard the recent relief is due to train accidents along the most popular path across Mexico.

I´m fairly certain that there is likely a bridge or two on the route that if "substantially Compromised" might perhaps curtail the continuation.(blame it on the Cartels?)

This problem is simple. We tell Mexico that if they don´t stop the trainhoppers from riding the rails, we will be forced to inspect every truck, every vehicle, every rail car from Mexico. And all of that Mexican produce will just have to sit in the sun, because we´re a bit short staffed.

Within a day, those trains will be empty.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. • Carrying identification documents and bitterness over their sudden joblessness, hundreds of ex-casino workers began filing for unemployment Wednesday morning, the first attendees at an assistance center that expects to process 5,000 newly laid-off workers over the next three days. The session at the Atlantic City Convention Center came after a brutal weekend that saw two casinos, the Showboat and Revel, close. Officials from the state Department of Labor and the main casino workers´ union, Local 54 of Unite-HERE, helped displaced workers file for unemployment and gave them information on signing up for health insurance and other

As CVS sharpens its focus on customer health, the nation´s second-largest drugstore chain will tweak its corporate name and stop the sale of tobacco nearly a month sooner than planned. CVS Caremark said it will now be known as CVS Health, effective immediately. The signs on its roughly 7,700 drugstores won´t change, so the change may not register with shoppers. However, those customers will see a big change when they check out. The cigars and cigarettes that used to fill the shelves behind store cash registers have been replaced with nicotine gum and signs urging visitors to kick the tobacco

The next time you have to take off your belt and shoes to gain access to the airplane you want to board, give a thought to Abdirahmaan Muhumed, the ISIS jihadi killed in Iraq. Because before he left Minnesota to fight for Allah, he worked as an airplane cleaner at Minneapolis St. Paukl International Airport, where he had “unfettered access” to airliners, the ramp area, and other supposedly secure areas. This information was uncovered by Fox affiliate KMSP: He was the second known American killed while fighting for ISIS in Syria, and the second from Minnesota -- and a Fox

Vice President Joe Biden delivered a passionate speech at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in New Hampshire, vowing to bring Islamic State terrorists to justice. Mentioning the deaths of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, Biden referred to the Islamic State terrorists as “barbarians” for beheading them on camera. "If they think the American people will be intimidated, they don´t know us very well,” Biden said, reminding the crowd that the United States came back after 9/11 and defeated Osama bin Laden. “When people harm Americans we don’t retreat, and we don’t forget,” he said. “They should know, we will follow them

Greg Abbott is the Texas Attorney General. He´s the frontrunner to be the next governor of Texas. (You might have heard of his opponent -- Wendy Davis.) Abbott is also a paraplegic, the result of an accident while he was jogging in his mid 20s. In Abbott´s new ad, produced by Erik Potholm and Paul Curcio, Abbott tells the story of how he adjusted to life in a wheelchair. (30-sec. Video) "After my accident, I had to rebuild my strength," says Abbott as he is shown rolling his wheelchair into an empty parking garage. "I would roll up an eight-story

Now first lady Michelle Obama gets her turn on the comedy website "Funny or Die." Mrs. Obama makes a cameo in a faux movie trailer for a fake film called "Snackpocalypse," in which high school students become junk food zombies. "Don´t you hate when trailers give away the whole movie?" says Mrs. Obama, who has made healthy eating a major theme of her years as first lady. Mrs. Obama also says: "Can we just watch Frozen again?" Earlier this year, President Obama appeared on the "Funny or Die" talk show "Between Two Ferns," trading barbs with host Zach Galifianakis about

As the world burns, President Obama is taking criticism from all sides. Even Salon editor (and Free Beacon aficionado) Joan Walsh has conceded: “I’d probably have suggested not golfing after [Obama’s] moving statement on journalist James Foley’s execution.” Of course, most of this criticism is due to the prevalence of social media, but even so, Obama defenders have returned to one of their favorite arguments: Criticism of our current president is unprecedented; literally no one criticized the sitting president until 2009. (Cartoons) Did Franklin Roosevelt play a lot golf during his presidency? Franklin. Roosevelt. Whatever, don’t want to step on

There’s a new GoPro accessory called Fetch, a specialized harness that lets you attach a camera to your pets. And when one dog owner hooked up his pooch with the device, the result was nothing short of insane. It’s a bit disorienting to watch the video, because the dog (named Walter) runs so quickly. And literally, the exact second the camera is attached to Walter, it runs off, makes its way to the beach, and jumps in the water. You can watch the video below:

Illinois is one of five states where small businesses will get an early start to the process of evaluating health insurance plans for next year as part of an effort by the federal government to test its systems prior to open enrollment.

President Barack Obama said that ISIS can be shrunk to “a manageable problem” if the international community works to “isolate” it on Wednesday. “If we are joined by the international community, we can continue to shrink ISIL´s sphere of influence, its effectiveness, its financing, its military capabilities, to the point where it is a manageable problem...what we´ve got to do is make sure that we are organizing the Arab world, the Middle East, the Muslim world, along with the international community, to isolate this cancer,” Obama stated.

Congress is handcuffed in addressing the threat posed by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) until President Obama details a strategy against the militant group, Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said Tuesday. Boehner said the United States could either eliminate the threat or continue to put U.S. lives at risk. "It’s his responsibility as the chief executive to outline a plan that will protect American interest, protect American lives both at home and abroad," Boehner said on Hugh Hewitt´s radio show. "And until the president is willing to lay out a plan, the Congress has very few options ahead

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

Billy and Karen Vaughn also lost their only-son Aaron Carson Vaughn in 2011, when the SEAL Team Six soldier´s Chinook helicopter was shown down over Afghanistan. Now the couple are calling on President Barack Obama to step down, citing his reaction to the Foley video and ´lack of leadership´ in confronting ISIS.

President Obama’s spokesman emphasized that the United States tried to save journalist Steven Sotloff, who has reportedly been beheaded by ISIS terrorists. “The United States, as you know, has dedicated significant time and resources to try and rescue Mr. Sotloff,” Earnest told reporters when alerted that ISIS had claimed to have executed the kidnapped reporter. In the video, the authenticity of which Earnest could confirm, Sotloff is apparently killed by the same British jihadist who killed American photojournalist James Foley. “I’m back, Obama, and I’m back because of your arrogant foreign policy towards the Islamic State,”

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

More important: Stop endangering all of us with your self-indulgent vacations and self-absorbed dithering, along with unconstitutional domestic power plays while the whole world burns. Barack Obama already is derelict in his duties as commander in chief. He ought to abdicate and just step off his self-made throne. Knowledgeable people were calling for Obama to begin air strikes against the Islamic State barbarians months before Obama could rouse himself to admit that the brutes were something other than “jayvee” terrorists. Because he didn’t, thousands of innocents died, villages were razed,

As the Post noted in its profile of Dorian Johnson, Brown´s "body had been autopsied three times — once each by St. Louis County police, a pathologist hired by Brown’s family and federal authorities.

Over the weekend, former President Jimmy Carter addressed the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) in Detroit. He told the assembly that the principles of Allah will benefit the whole world. Jimmy Carter left the Southern Baptist Church a few years back, citing its “rigid” views. Muslim views tend to be a whole lot more “rigid.” For instance, Saudi Arabia doesn’t allow Christians to build any churches. Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood supporters are waging pogroms against Christians. If a Muslim leaves Islam, they are called an apostate and are often marked or death. One can be an apostate just by having
