Border Patrol agents in the Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV) of South Texas are being warned about risks posed to them on the border by “open warfare” including grenade attacks occurring on the Mexican side. The warning echoes Breitbart Texas’s Cartel Chronicles reports on the bloody war occurring at the border between a faction of the Mexican Gulf Cartel and Mexican authorities.
The warning was issued by the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) to agents in the RGV Sector. It reads:
WARNING ADVISORY TO BORDER PATROL AGENTS IN RGV SECTOR
Recent events in Tamaulipas, Mexico, specifically in and around the city of Reynosa, pose a special risk to U.S. Border Patrol agents working in the region.
The Reynosa faction of the Mexican Gulf Cartel recently lost its leader and the group is engaging in open warfare with Mexican authorities and possibly with rival factions or other transnational criminal groups. Open source reports indicate gunbattles and use of grenades and other explosives in the fighting.
Border Patrol agents working the line in any station’s area of operations immediately across the largely open border from Reynosa, Mexico, are advised to employ extra caution in the performance of their duties. Stray rounds from firearms have previously injured U.S. law enforcement personnel on the border.
The majority, if not nearly all of U.S. media outlets have ignored and refused to report on the violence that has broken out along the U.S.-Mexico border immediately south of the RGV Sector. The Reynosa faction of the Gulf Cartel lost its boss, Comandante Toro or Juan Manuel Loaiza Salinas aka Julian Loiza Salinas. The death sparked violent infighting and clashes with Mexican authorities. Residents in the area were forced to live under complete control of Toro, with even the news outlets having to answer to him.
Border Patrol agents and other U.S. law enforcement working on the border are indeed at risk when clashes occur between the paramilitary transnational criminal organizations in Mexico and Mexican authorities. As recently as November of 2016, one U.S. Border Patrol agent and one Texas State Trooper were shot while patrolling the border in the same sector.

The murder of an American Muslim teen in Virginia that leftists blamed on Donald Trump was actually committed by an illegal immigrant.
As soon as this facet of the story became known, leftists suddenly lost all interest in the case. I wonder why?
17-year-old Nabra Hassanen was killed during an incident on Sunday when Darwin Martinez Torres drove up a curb towards a group of about 15 teens who were walking in Fairfax County after participating in an event at the All Dulles Area Muslim Society.
Torres became enraged after arguing with one of the teens on a bike before leaving his vehicle and chasing the group with a baseball bat.
The suspect caught Hassanen and hit her with the bat before taking her body to an unknown location in Loudon County.
“Hassanen, whose body was found in a pond around 3 p.m. Sunday in Sterling, Virginia, died from blunt force trauma to the upper body,” reports ABC News.
“ICE said in a statement Monday that they have filed a detainer on Torres, a citizen of El Salvador, for potential deportation as he is believed to be in the U.S. illegally.”
Despite the culprit being unknown at the time, leftists blamed Donald Trump and his supporters for the Muslim girl’s murder.
President and Co-Founder of The New Agenda Amy Siskin tweeted yesterday, “It appears @realDonaldTrump is also going to turn a blind eye to a white man kidnapping and murdering a 17 y-o Muslim woman in OUR country!”
“Trump’s hatred and bigotry are ripping the fabric of our country apart!” she added.
When challenged on why she blamed Trump/white people for the murder, Siskind responded by blocking me on Twitter and deleting her original tweets.
Trump was also criticized by the left-wing Independent newspaper for failing to address “the murder of a Muslim teenager in Virginia”.
In an article in the Atlantic entitled “Muslims Feel Under Siege,” writer Emma Green tied Hassanen’s murder into a larger narrative alleging a wave of Islamophobia sweeping the west.
One wonders whether Green will be writing a follow up now it’s confirmed that the murderer was a non-white illegal immigrant.
Torres likely gained entry to the country via President Obama’s specifically created UAC (Unaccompanied Alien Children) program.
The fact that Trump and his supporters were blamed for a murder carried out by an illegal immigrant once again underscores the rampant hysteria that has gripped the left.
In reality, most of the violence is being metered out against Trump and his supporters.
Last week, a crazed Bernie Sanders supporter tried to massacre a group of Republicans in Alexandria, an attack that some in the media blamed on Republicans.

An illegal immigrant deported six times prior from the United States is facing deportation again after crossing the U.S.-Mexico Border.
Agustin Jorge Figueroa-Garcia, a 29 of Mexico, was caught by federal immigration agents with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency in Texas, according to News4 San Antonio.
Figueroa-Garcia was deported for the sixth time by ICE in December 2014 via El Paso, Texas.
Now, federal agents are looking to deport Figueroa-Garcia for the seventh time, charging him with re-entering the U.S. illegally.
Illegal immigrants should be living in fear of being deported, the chief of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Tuesday, pushing back against a growing sentiment among Democrats on Capitol Hill and activists across the country who have complained about agents enforcing the laws on the books.
Thomas D. Homan, acting director at ICE, said anyone in the country without authorization can be arrested and those who have been ordered deported by judges must be removed if laws are to have meaning.
His comments marked a major shift for an agency that President Obama forbade from enforcing the law when it came to more than 9 million of the country’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants. Unshackled from Mr. Obama’s strictures, agents have dramatically increased the number of arrests.
Advocacy groups are enraged and demand leniency for “traumatized” immigrants.
Mr. Homan makes no apologies.
“If you’re in this country illegally and you committed a crime by being in this country, you should be uncomfortable, you should look over your shoulder. You need to be worried,” Mr. Homan testified to the House Appropriations Committee. “No population is off the table.”
The Trump administration is asking for significant boosts in spending for both border and interior enforcement, but it is meeting resistance from Democrats who oppose a crackdown.
“Democrats will not accept a penny of funding for a new deportation force or a border wall,” said Rep. Nita M. Lowey of New York, the ranking Democrat on the committee.
Border Patrol acting Chief Carla Provost defended the 74 miles of fencing that President Trump wants to erect next year, saying the wall will plug holes where illegal activity is still a problem in San Diego and parts of Texas.
She said the southwestern border is at medium risk of penetration and needs the wall to assist. She said construction on the 74 miles would start in either March or April.
Mr. Homan, meanwhile, said he needs a major infusion of detention beds to hold the larger population of illegal immigrants, now that his agents have been unshackled from the restrictions under Mr. Obama.
He said the number of countries refusing to take back their deportees has been cut in half, while the number of jurisdictions looking to have their police and sheriff’s deputies trained to process illegal immigrants in their jails has nearly doubled and will likely triple by the end of the year.
In addition, some 400,000 illegal immigrants ordered removed by judges but who were ignored under the Obama administration are now back on the list of priorities.
All of that means more illegal immigrants to be detained in preparation for deportation.
Rep. C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, Maryland Democrat, told Mr. Homan not to try deporting drunken drivers.
“DWI or traffic is not really considered to be the type of people that are hurting our country,” he said.
Mr. Homan, though, said drunken driving sounds like a public safety risk. “They should be removed,” he said.
Mr. Homan said anyone in the country without authorization is a target for enforcement.
“We shouldn’t wait for them to become a criminal,” he said.
That angered immigrant rights advocates, who said it showed antipathy toward illegal immigrants.
“Wow. How revealing,” said Frank Sharry, executive director at America’s Voice. “Homan makes it clear that the ICE strategy is to indiscriminately target the entire undocumented population in America and to intentionally spread fear throughout millions of deeply rooted families.”
He called Mr. Homan’s testimony extremist.
Mr. Homan pushed back against such criticism. He said his agents are enforcing the laws as written and no other branch of law enforcement faces the abusive questions his employees do.
He said the illegal immigrants deserve the blame for separating families. When a U.S. citizen commits a crime and goes to jail, he said, the police who catch him aren’t blamed for keeping him from his family.
Mr. Homan said the increased risk of enforcement is part of the reason illegal immigration across the southwestern border is at its lowest level in decades.
Democrats, though, said his officers need to show more discretion.
Ms. Lowey raised the case of a 19-year-old man in New York who was arrested on the day of his high school prom, which she said sent the wrong signal.
She said the man had kept out of trouble and was arrested while waiting at a bus stop for school.
Mr. Homen defended the arrest as valid. He said the young man committed a crime when he sneaked across the border and ignored an immigration judge’s order to be removed.
“He lost his case, and because we don’t like the results of that case we forget about it?” Mr. Homan asked Ms. Lowey. “I don’t know where else in the American justice system any other agency is told to ignore a judge’s ruling.”

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti (D) in a recent radio interview said he is concerned that increased Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids under the Trump administration could cause already high tensions in his city to boil over.
“If something goes wrong, I fear a tinderbox out there, you know where people will suddenly say ‘no’ and try to defend. You know, keep that person from being taken,” Garcetti told Latino USA.
“That’s a very dangerous situation. That’s dangerous for those officers. That’s dangerous for those agents. And we’re going to have to respond.”
Garcetti noted that the city has built trust between the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) and the immigrant community that could be affected by aggressive immigration actions, like those promised by President Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
“We just commemorated, you know, 25 years since the urban unrest and we know how quickly things can explode,” Garcetti said, referencing the 1992 riots that followed the acquittal of several LAPD officers in the beating of Rodney King.
“But when ICE calls themselves police, people open that door expecting to see LAPD. It’s bad for ICE, and it’s bad for LAPD,” he said.
