Brooks County, Texas: Ranchers Round
Up Illegals Who Skirt Checkpoint

Daily Signal, by Josh Siegel

Original Article

FALFURRIAS, Texas – Far from the crisis along the border with Mexico in the Rio Grande Valley, the checkpoint here exists to deter those who made it this far but want to get away. To an American — let’s say a young white man– the three-lane checkpoint some 70 miles from the border seems far from threatening. A Border Patrol agent asks if you’re a U.S. citizen. Answer correctly, and he lets you through. But for illegal immigrants who want to elude capture, the Falfurrias checkpoint, with drug-sniffing dogs looming, is the likely end of the journey. So the migrants

Comments:
This article gives a tiny glimpse and true picture of what is happening all over the southern border. It is just stunning that our government is allowing this to happen to the American people. I cannot even imagine this happening on my property. I would be just terrified. He says: "The men had shown a light outside a window of his home, and asked to use the phone." This should not be happening in the United States of America.

Much as I agree that the illegal alien problem is bad, I dont like the idea of border patrol checkpoints in the interior. I have been stopped at them many times in the southwest; without warrant or probable cause. I dont much care for that. If nothing else it is a clear violation of the 4th Amendment.
The Border Patrol agents have never given me a hard time and they are fun to tease. Once a bunch of us were heading out camping and told the agent the girls in a car following us were flashing us. (it was our wives.) We caught hell after he interviewed them for a long time and they didnt know why. Hee hee. Another time I asked one if he got more aliens than the other checkpoints because of his proximity to Roswell.

I have no problem with Border Patrol checkpoints miles from the border. As the earlier poster said, they are always courteous and I don´t see this as any different from police checkpoints across the nation to check for alcohol, driver´s license, etc.

The referenced ranchers are 70 miles from the border. Our ranch is 80 miles north. I can identify.

#1 and #2, "Sie sind Papiere bitte. Mach Schnell! Gut. Gut. Du bist ein guter Leibeigener ... uh ... Burger."

Loosely translated: "You´re papers please. Make it quick! Good. Good. You´re a good subject ... uh ... citizen."

Enjoy, you´re subjugation.

If they were doing their jobs protecting the borders, there would be no need to have interior checkpoints.

#4, do you also object to traffic roadblocks when cops are trying to apprehend a fleeing lawbreaker? Why would an attempt to spot illegal lawbreakers be more Germanic?

It is a known fact that not all illegals enter USA territory at the designated entry ports on the border, preferring instead to sneak into the country across the Rio Grande and/or other remote areas along the border. Once inside USA territory at some point the illegals must use the roads and highways. It is best to locate illegals as close to the border as possible, thus the checkpoints are located where they can best accomplish that.

I have most often encountered Border Patrol checkpoints on the highway between Del Rio and Uvalde, a 70 mile stretch paralleling the border about 50-60 miles north. This is apparently a favored route for the illegals trying to get to Interstate 35 at San Antonio.

Go big: Immigration activists
beg Obama to legalize eight

Hot Air, by Allahpundit    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/12/2014 7:11:26 PM     Post Reply
The number kicked around for the past few months was five or six million. That’s not good enough for immigration groups, who want to see something closer to eight figures. And once you’re creeping up towards 10 million, there’s really no point in having eligibility criteria at all. Just legalize everyone, no questions asked. Honestly, if we’re going to have the president dictate national policy, what’s the sense in demanding that he do it by half-measures? Instead of dipping a toe into our new antidemocratic age, let’s swan dive. Marielena Hincapié, the executive director of the National Immigration Law Center, said that’s

Dreamers from Texas, a chapter of an immigrant-youth led organization, on Thursday will descend on Sen. Ted Cruz’s Houston offices, present him a huge blowout of his Canadian birth certificate and remind him of his own immigrant roots, according to a release. Maria Fernanda Cabello, an organizer for the organization, United We Dream (UWD), issued the following statement: “Since taking office, Sen.

The Federal Aviation Administration issued a temporary flight restriction on Tuesday for an area surrounding Ferguson, M0., the town where a police officer fatally shot an unarmed 18-year-old black man, after a St. Louis County police helicopter was fired upon Sunday night. The flight restriction was issued Tuesday at 1:15 p.m. local time. The reason for the notice is “TO PROVIDE A SAFE ENVIRONMENT FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT ACTIVITIES.” A Ferguson police officer shot Michael Brown on Saturday. The incident sparked outrage in the community as Brown was reportedly unarmed and surrendering to the officer when he was shot multiple times.

On Tuesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said she wanted President Barack Obama to enact the "broadest possible" executive amnesty. In an interview on Univision radio, Pelosi hoped that Obama would give temporary amnesty to the parents of DREAMers and U.S. citizens. Obama is reportedly considering giving temporary amnesty and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants via executive fiat during the August recess. Pelosi said, according to Fusion´s Jordan Fabian: It would be my hope that the president´s lawyers would advise him on the broadest possible prosecutorial discretion, that would include actions to say that it would extend

Midterm elections usually end up as referendums on the current President, and sixth-year midterms especially so. Will that be the case in November with Barack Obama? According to a new poll from Marist and McClatchy, yes — and Democrats will not like the outcome. By a ten-point spread, Obama incentivizes voters to go Republican more than Democratic: President Barack Obama is dragging down his party and hurting the prospects of fellow Democrats as they head into midterm elections that will determine who controls Congress, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll. Obama is beset by problems at home and abroad. Just

EXCLUSIVE: More than 600 illegal immigrants with criminal convictions were released by federal authorities in early 2013 in advance of the "sequester" budget cuts, according to a government watchdog report obtained by FoxNews.com. The report by the Department of Homeland Security Office of Inspector General, expected to be released on Tuesday, showed that Immigration and Customs Enforcement released "criminal aliens" from jails all over the country as part of a wave of releases in February 2013. The agency came under fire at the time for the decision, which critics described as politically motivated and dangerous. The report found that ICE

Michael Brown´s family has condemned the criminality that followed his shooting by a police officer, but some activists view the looting near St. Louis as a "wake-up call." "And we in some way have to thank them for giving us a wake-up call," community activist James Clark told MSNBC´s Lawrence O´Donnell Monday night. "And now that we have the wake-up call, we must mobilize and go into our neighborhoods and offer them a sense of hope and a sense of purpose." Two nights of looting, arson, vandalism and other criminal behavior followed Brown´s shooting on Saturday afternoon. Witnesses say Brown was unarmed when a white police officer shot him multiple times, killing

The decision by Sen.

Walsh’s departure from the race came in the same week that two Republican senators — Pat Roberts in Kansas and Lamar Alexander in Tennessee — defeated tea party challengers in primary fights, ensuring that every GOP senator seeking reelection would be the party’s nominee.

The president who spent years touting the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq suddenly has had to distance himself from that action. At the White House on Saturday morning — less than 48 hours after authorizing airstrikes against Islamist militants and humanitarian air drops to save the lives of trapped Iraqi civilians — President Obama blamed his predecessor, George W. Bush, for the absence of American troops in Iraq and rejected the assertion that he could have left a small peacekeeping force in the war-torn nation. He uttered those after three years, and a successful re-election campaign, in which

President Obama must really be teed off. Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid. Obama responded with not one but two rounds of golf. Clinton, in an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg published by the Atlantic over the weekend, offered a withering comment on the Obama doctrine, described in shorthand by White House officials as “don’t do stupid [expletive].” Said Clinton: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.” As the criticism became public, Obama was doggedly sticking with

It didn´t take long for Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) to embrace amnesty again. As soon as he won his Senate primary election against conservative Joe Carr, Alexander said it was "embarrassing" that Republicans have not yet passed a bill. Never mind that Alexander spent nearly his entire primary campaign trying to convince voters that he was against "amnesty" and would never dare to embrace it before the primary election. “I don’t know how it will affect our politics in the near term," Alexander told Politico of a comprehensive immigration bill. “I think it’s embarrassing for us not to deal with the problem, and
