Border Patrol agents in the El Centro Sector arrested a previously deported sex offender in southern California. He is the fifth, previously deported sex offender busted after crossing the border illegally in this sector since the beginning of the new fiscal year.
Agents working an isolated area near Mount Signal observed a man running north from the International Border. Agents caught up with the suspected illegal immigrant and confirmed he had just crossed, according to information obtained by Breitbart Texas from U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.
The agents transported the suspect to the El Centro Station for processing. During a routine identification check, agents discovered the 42-year-old Mexican national is a previously deported sex offender. The State of California convicted the man for Lewdness Acts with a Minor under 16. The court sentenced the criminal alien to 20 months in prison. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials deported the man following his prison term.
The Department of Justice will now prosecute the Mexican national for Reentry After Removal as a convicted sex offender.
“The vigilant work of our agents in the El Centro Sector has led to the successful removal of a sexual predator,” Assistant Chief Patrol Agent David S. Kim said in a written statement. “We’re sending a clear message to those who have committed serious crimes in the United States and are seeking to illegally enter, that we will vigorously pursue criminal prosecution.”
Four other previously deported sex offenders have been arrested by Border Patrol agents in this sector alone over the past four months, Breitbart Texas reported earlier this month. Other sectors have also been reported the continuing arrests of previously deported sex offenders — illustrating the need to control our nation’s southern border with Mexico more efficiently.

The west coast states, or at least the insane liberals who run them, seem to have lost touch with reality and what it means to be the United States of America. Ours is not a dumping ground for the human refuse of the world, including unquestioned access by its radicals, as that stupid poem on the Statue of Liberty pedestal claims. We’re better than that, we have a culture and we have laws that must be enforced. Eight years of an outlaw illegal alien occupying the White House has caused some to forget those truths and allowed others the opportunity for exploitation. The poisonous influences of that miscreant must be purged.
While California has long been the leader of the liberal, crazed west coast states, Oregon and Washington are catching up. Earlier this month the governor of Oregon declared it to be a sanctuary state and forbid “all state agencies and employees from helping federal immigration officials locate or apprehend undocumented immigrants.” Oregon has a problem with radical liberals tearing up Portland and many see this action as an attempt to throw them a bone.
Washington’s AG and a “so-called” judge just intervened in national security, creating a threatening situation for all of us, on behalf of potential terrorists that want to enter America. They overruled the President in order to allow people for whom we have no means of determining their true intent or background to force their way in. Those irrational acts took place in the metropolitan mind screws of Olympia and septic Seattle. But the toxic political correctness has backed up and spilled over the bowl into other, more rural and formerly normal areas of the state.
In the little town of Prosser, southeast of Yakima, an elementary school teacher is currently under suspension for something she said, in our land of supposed protected speech, while not on duty, not on school grounds and not to her students. She exercised her supposed rights under the Constitution on her own personal social media page.
The teacher, who has not been identified, was placed on leave Friday. The school district described her offense as having posted a Facebook message that “could be considered hostile or offensive on the basis of national origin.” Supposedly the post resulted in numerous emails and angry phone calls and visits to the school by “concerned citizens and parents.”
In the Facebook post the teacher reportedly voiced her stance in support of boycotting Thursday’s “A Day Without Immigrants” [illegal alien squatters] protests. She also provided information on how to contact the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency to “report illegal aliens.”
The post continued, saying, “They will need to know names, locations(either work place or residence) and any other specific information you can provide.” She added, “If this offended you in anyway do me a favor and unfriend my American ass!!!”
All of that was legal, all of it was her opinion, she wasn’t breaking any laws and was within her rights as an American citizen to express. What was the problem, one might ask. The school enrollment is two-thirds Hispanic, with 72 percent of all students receiving a discounted lunch. The problem is there is a high percentage of illegals enrolled in the school and their interests were put ahead of the rights of the American citizen.
The politically correct panderers to the lawbreaking illegals at the Prosser School District, explained their decision in a news release issued late Friday afternoon. It stated, “Due to possible safety and security concerns, as well as concern for disruption of the school environment, this teacher has been placed on administrative leave pending investigation of this incident by the district.”
Liberals often fall back on the concern for safety as an excuse to justify their trampling of the Constitution. There’s also the ever-popular “right thing to do” and “not who we are,” that Obama drilled into our psyche at every opportunity. They’ll probably have to draw upon those when they take unjustifed and illegal disciplinary action against her. They used the words possible to describe the basis for their decision, including the threat to the school environment. That is evidence that no malfeasance took place, that the liberals were offended and reacted. She needs to find a good lawyer now.
While the identity of the teacher was not released, the school was identified as Keene-Riverview Elementary School. The town a population of less than 6,000 and only one zip code. She’s the one teacher that didn’t show up for work, the one with the guts to speak the truth, who is being attacked for doing so.
The politically correct eggheads in the school administration issued a news release distancing themselves from the teacher, saying, “Please be assured that the views expressed by this teacher on her personal Facebook page do not in any way reflect the views, beliefs or values of the Prosser School District or its administration or Board of Directors.” All of those trained communist seals believe and think exactly alike, speak as one and none of them agree with the principled and patriotic teacher. National security, national sovereignty and putting Americans first are concepts they are unfamiliar with in libtard-tainted, small town Prosser.
The parents should be outraged that patriotism is offensive speech at that school as well as the trampling of this American woman’s constitutionally protected freedom to voice her views. That is what should have them concerned. That is why they should be making phone calls and visits.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary John F. Kelly authorized the hiring of an additional 10,000 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents and enforcement officers. The move by DHS delivers on a promise made by President Donald Trump to increase enforcement–particularly in removing criminal aliens inside the borders of the U.S.
Secretary Kelly ordered the director of ICE to immediately begin the process of hiring 10,000 to effectively enforce the immigration laws in the interior regions of the U.S., according to a DHS memo obtained by Breitbart Texas. In addition, Kelly authorized the agency to hire additional operational and mission support staff, along with legal staff.
Kelly said the memo implements the Executive Order, “Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States,” issued by President Trump on January 25.
ICE agents and enforcement officers were used earlier this month to conduct a targeted roundup of criminal aliens in metropolitan areas across the country. Agents and officers arrested more than 600 criminal aliens in 11 states, Breitbart Texas reported. The operation spawned a rash of “fake news” reports, tweets, and other social media comments that sparked unnecessary fear among immigrants not in the sights of the targeted operation.
“I believe ICE is out in public arresting people in order to retaliate against our community for standing up for our values against people like Abbott and Trump,” Austin City Councilman Casar posted on Facebook. “Trump and his allies will do everything they can to divide Americans, invoke fear in vulnerable neighborhoods, and demonize an entire community of people.”
“Of those [680 aliens] arrested, approximately 75 percent were criminal aliens, convicted of crimes including, but not limited to, homicide, aggravated sexual abuse, sexual assault of a minor, lewd and lascivious acts with a child, indecent liberties with a minor, drug trafficking, battery, assault, DUI and weapons charges,” Secretary Kelly wrote in a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas.
ICE enforcement officers routinely execute targeted enforcement operations to remove violent criminal aliens from the country. The additional 10,000 agents and officers will allow the DHS to more efficiently carry out its mission of enforcing immigration laws in the interior of the country.
Some of the operations conducted in the past include (according to DHS statistics):
February 2017 – Fugitive enforcement operations began Monday, Feb. 6 in the Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, New York and San Antonio areas of responsibility, which resulted in more than 680 arrests of convicted criminal aliens and other immigration enforcement priorities;
March 2015 – National Cross Check operation that led to 2,059 arrests nationwide;
August 2013 – National fugitive enforcement operation resulting in 1,660 arrests including 1,517 convicted criminals;
April 2012 – National Cross Check operation that resulted in more than 3,100 arrests;
September 2011 – National Cross Check operation leading to the arrest of more than 2,900 convicted criminal aliens;
June 2011 – National Cross Check operation that resulted in more than 2,400 arrests across all 50 states.
The memorandum from Secretary Kelly is effective immediately.
Union leader says some stations continue to follow Obama ‘catch and release’ directives
By Brendan Kirby
Some border patrol stations have been slow to carry out President Donald Trump’s immigration enforcement executive order and instead have continued former President Barack Obama’s “catch-and-release” policies, according to a union official.
Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told LifeZette that he raised concerns Thursday with U.S. Border Patrol Chief Ronald Vitiello. He said he is confident that issue soon will be corrected.
But Judd said as recently as Thursday, some border patrol stations were still releasing border-jumpers, often without even issuing notices to appear in immigration court hearings. Obama’s policy was to release anyone claiming to have been living continuously in the United States since before Jan. 1, 2014, if they did not have criminal records or active warrants.
“We’re still walking people out the door,” Judd said. “The catch-and-release policy is still in place in some sectors.”
Judd said it was a minority of sectors that have been resisting Trump’s new directives. He laid the blame at the feet of U.S. Border Patrol managers, not front-line officers.
“This is not the administration’s fault. This is Border Patrol’s fault,” he said. “It varies from sector to sector. Some sectors still are operating under the Obama administration’s policies. And that’s troubling … It’s just been very willy-nilly.”
Asked about the status of Trump’s marching orders, Customs and Border Protection spokesman Carlos Diaz wrote in an email to LifeZette, “CBP has worked towards implementing the measures mandated by the Executive Orders since they were signed.”
Judd said some managers have been waiting for specific written guidelines to filter down from the Department of Homeland Security. He said he considers that unnecessary since the president’s executive order is crystal clear. He said anyone apprehended by border patrol agents should be turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement authorities. That agency and immigration judges are charged with deciding whether someone should be deported.
Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, said she was not aware that the president’s executive order had not been fully implemented three weeks after he issued it.
“It actually surprises me. But if that’s the case, certainly the administration is going to need to look into that if they’re going to be undermined,” she said. “That’s got to be nipped in the bud.”
Vaughan, a former U.S. Foreign Service officer, said it often takes time for new policies to be fully embraced. This especially is true during the transition from one administration to the next, she said, because the outgoing administration often has promoted managers who agree with its policy goals.
She noted that Obama, himself, faced bumps in the road on the way to implementing enforcement directives mandating a lighter hand. She said union officials enforced the letter of their collective bargaining agreement requiring training before new policies are adopted.
“It’s not unusual for people who are in disagreement with change to dig in their heels and take a stand,” she said. “I certainly saw that at the State Department where implementation of law and policies could differ based on the views of different managers and different posts.”
Joseph Guzzardi, a spokesman for Californians for Population Stabilization, said it was disappointing that some border patrol officials appear not be onboard with the new policies.
“It would be surprising to me because Border Patrol has been hugely in support of Trump when he ran,” he said. “I have been down to the border and talked to Border Patrol agents and got the clear impression that they were eager to enforce immigration law.”
Judd said he expects a “compete change” after his conversation with Vitiello but added that the policies already should be fully implemented.
“It should not have had to be me who informed him,” he said.
This probably isn’t the ‘wall’ Donald Trump had in mind. Hundreds of people in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez gathered on the edge of the Rio Grande river on Friday to form a ‘human wall’ to protest President Trump’s plans for a wall between the countries.
The demonstrators held aloft colorful swatches of cloth and white flowers and waved to the residents of the neighboring city of El Paso, Texas on Friday.
Organizers said a friendly, human wall meant to join the two cities was better than a wall of steel or concrete to divide them.
‘We have, as it is being demonstrated here, many friends on the other side of the river, on the other side where they intend to build this wall that will never separate two friendly peoples,’ said former Mexican presidential candidate Cuauhtemoc Cardenas said.
Chihuahua Governor Javier Corral issued the call for people to form a human wall.
‘In the face of the intention of Donald Trump to build a wall we cannot bow down, because bowing down will mean things will go worse for us…’ he said before the event, according to Mexico News Daily.
Corral said he doesn’t believe most Americans want a wall and that it contradicts the ‘spirit of the founders of the United States.’
The mayor of El Paso, Oscar Leeser, attended the protest. He himself was born in Chihuahua and immigrated to Texas when he was nine, according to his official bio.
He said his life, in which he rose to become a successful car dealer businessman, is the very definition of the ‘American dream.’
Trump has promised to make Mexico pay for the wall, something Mexican officials say they will not do.
A similar event was also held in Tijuana.
