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.
Whittier police officer Keith Boyer was killed during a shootout with a “known gang member” suspected in another murder hours earlier in Los Angeles County. A procession and candlelight vigil were held to commemorate his 27-year career and sacrifice.
Just after 8:00am Monday, Boyer and Officer Patrick Hazel both responded to a traffic accident in separate patrol cars. When the officers asked the suspect to exit his vehicle, he pulled out a semiautomatic pistol and began firing at them.
Boyer and Hazel returned fire, injuring the suspect before backup came.
After other officers arrived, Boyer and Hazel were rushed to the hospital, where Boyer was pronounced dead. Hazel and the suspect were both reported in stable condition and are expected to survive. The suspect was taken into custody after being treated.
According to a statement released on Facebook by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the suspect was “a known gang member on parole on early release.” They also state that a handgun was recovered at the scene, and that the suspect’s vehicle was reported stolen earlier that day.
In a press conference following the shootout, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Lieutenant John Corina said that Police have identified the suspect as a 26-year-old Hispanic gang member who was paroled from jail less than two weeks ago.
The investigation into the suspect’s vehicle revealed it was connected to another murder that was reported earlier that morning in East Los Angeles.
Police say they are still investigating, but Corina told reporters that witnesses identified the suspect “as being the person that’s responsible for that murder.”
“It looks like he did a murder over there earlier this morning, took the car, and then happened to be driving through Whittier when he got in the accident, and then was contacted by the Whittier officers,” Corina said at the press conference. “Unbeknownst to the Whittier police officers, when they went to pull the car over, they had a murder suspect… in a stolen car.“
“Everybody needs to know what these officers are dealing with on a daily basis,” Piper said. “People don’t want to follow rules. People don’t care about other people… This is a senseless, senseless tragedy that did not need to be.“
The death of Boyer marks the first time a Whittier police officer has been killed in the line of duty in 34 years.
In the afternoon, hundreds of officers accompanied Boyer’s body during a procession, as his remains were transported from UC Irvine Medical Center to the Orange County coroner’s office.
A candlelight vigil began at 6:00pm for Boyer, with hundreds showing up to honor him.

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.

Despite media reports of a massive crackdown by President Trump on illegal immigrants, just a tiny percentage of the nearly 1 million on the government’s deportation list have been arrested, according to statistics provided to Congress.
The 680 seized in recent sweeps by U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement agents represent just .07 percent of the 950,062 with deportation orders as of May 21, 2016.
Responses to questions from the Senate Judiciary Committee, provided by Thomas D. Homan, currently the acting ICE director, revealed the struggle the agency faces as it moves to deport illegals, many with criminal records and slapped with “final orders of removal” after exhausting their court appeals.
He said that ICE has custody of just 11,006, or 1 percent, of the 950,062 ordered deported.
“As of May 21, 2016, there were 950,062 aliens with final orders of removal on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) national docket. Of those aliens, 939,056 were on ICE’s non-detained docket and 11,006 were on ICE’s detained docket,” said Homan’s answer to questions from Judiciary Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley.
As it moves to find those not detained, ICE is beefing up its force, hiring up to 15,000.
There are an estimated 3 million illegal immigrants with criminal records in addition to their illegal status and the administration has said it will make them a priority for removal. The numbers in the ICE answers could have adjusted but deporting criminal illegals was not a priority in the last months of the Obama administration, according to experts.
Immigration experts said that sanctuary cities are mostly to blame for the huge number of illegal immigrants with deportation orders who are not in custody.
“The question I think people should be asking is, ‘Why are there so many criminal aliens who are at large?'” said Jessica M. Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies.
“Why does ICE have to take to the streets to find these people? One reason is because so many criminal aliens have been released by sanctuary policies. If you look at the list of cities where these operations took place, many of them are sanctuaries. ICE has to do these kinds of operations when they are prevented from arresting criminal aliens while they are in jail,” she added.
She explained that those slated for removal from the United States are often simply floating in cities, either not required to check in with authorities or ignoring that requirement.
In Homan’s answers to Grassley, he said that “Individuals on ICE’s non-detained docket with final orders of removal are released under conditions designed to ensure their compliance with their immigration obligations.”
Vaughan translated: “11,006 of the 950,062 aliens with final orders of removal (exhausted all appeals) were in detention. The rest were at large. The ‘conditions’ they mention usually means ‘own recognizance,’ or no conditions, or bond, no reporting requirements, or calling an automated phone line to check in, or wearing an ankle bracelet, or checking in with an ICE officer in person – in that order of frequency, as far as I know. In other words, most of these people were just in the wind.”
