Mexican illegal who was removed from USA 7 TIMES crashes van, kills father-of-three…

Nemias Garcia-Velasco (pictured), 32, was allegedly going over 100mph when he lost control of his 2001 Dodge Ram work van and crashed, killing 58-year-old Silvano Torres

An illegal immigrant, who has been removed from the United States seven times, had consumed ’12 beers and was driving at 100mph‘ when he crashed his van and killed a father-of-three.

Nemias Garcia-Velasco, 32, who is from Mexico, was going over 100mph when he lost control of his 2001 Dodge Ram work van and crashed, killing 58-year-old Silvano Torres.

Prosecutor Ryan Lindberg said Garcia-Velasco was driving down Interstate 80 around 1pm on Wednesday when the incident occurred.

Garcia-Velasco told officers that he had consumed 12 beers the previous evening into the morning of the crash, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

During Garcia-Velasco’s hearing, Lindberg also said the man had been removed from the US a total of seven times.

After two deportation hearings, in 2009 and 2011, Garcia-Velasco was forced out of the country and the five other times were considered ‘voluntary returns’.

Lindberg also added that Garcia-Velasco had also been convicted of having false citizenship papers prior to the crash, just a day after the Fourth of July holiday.

Another passenger, Jesus I. Gonzalez, 16, was treated at the hospital and released the day of the crash.

Garcia-Velasco suffered from severe burns to his face and was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center at the time.

Rosa Flores, who had been dating Torres, said he loved talking about his two daughters and his son.

Torres had documentation to be in the US, she told the Herald, adding that he had lived in Omaha for nearly six years.

The pair were on their way to their respective homes after leaving a job patching a roof because it got too hot.

Garcia-Velasco was charged with motor vehicle homicide in the death of Torres. His bail was set at $2 million.

Mo Brooks: Republican Congress Has Ceded Building Border Wall to Democrats

By John Hayward

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) joined SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Tuesday’s Breitbart News Daily to talk about his run for the Senate, which includes a campaign ad that threatens a government shutdown if President Trump’s proposed border wall is not funded.

Marlow complimented Brooks on the craftsmanship of the ad, which is upbeat rather than angry as it sends what he called “a very tough message Washington needs to hear.”

“We’ve had promise after promise to build a border security wall,” Brooks said. “Congress has authorized it long ago, but Congress has refused to appropriate the money. Most recently in April, there was an opportunity to fund the border wall, but the United States Congress, in particular, the Senate, refused to come up with that funding that was necessary.”

“In effect, our Senate leadership, our Republican senators, have ceded to the Democrats the ability to block funding for the border wall,” he charged. “That was a keystone of President Trump’s campaign back in 2016. We need to keep our promises to the American people, and we need to start fighting back.”

“We should not be on bended knee, groveling and asking Chuck Schumer and the Democrats if we can please have the money to fund that wall,” said Brooks. “We’re the majority in the United States Senate, and the majority should rule, but right now, our Republican Senate has ceded to the Democrats the power over our agenda, the power over what we can vote on.”

“It’s effectively like this: a majority of our Senate, our Republicans, have empowered the Democrats to block the majority will of the Senate, to block the majority will of the House, to block the will of the President of the United States, and to block the will of the tens of millions of voters who sent us to Washington, DC, to fix not only this border wall problem, but a lot of other problems,” he said.

“If we’ve got the opportunity, we need to fight fire with fire, and we need to have a little bit more backbone than we’ve been showing in Washington, DC, on these issues that are critical to our country,” urged Brooks.

Brooks agreed with Marlow’s concern that the Senate would come up short on backbone.

“There are special interest groups offering tens of millions of dollars in direct or indirect campaign support that want this huge influx of cheap, inexpensive foreign labor that undercuts the living wages of American families,” Brooks said. “This is a key issue to those groups, primarily on the employer side.”

“We’ve got to have the backbone ourselves to overcome that and do what Americans needs,” he urged.

“Let me just give you a few examples as to how bad the problem is, which justifies us having border security on our southern border,” Brooks offered. “I’m going to cover some data points for you, so please bear with me. From the year 2000 to 2014, a 14-year period, in the age bracket 16 to 65, a very large age bracket, the American economy had a net gain of 5.6 million jobs. That’s 14 years, age 16-65, 5.6 million net job gain in that category. Your listeners ought to be asking themselves this question: how many of those jobs went to people born in America? Our kids and our grandkids.”

“I’m going to put you on the spot: what would be your guess?” he asked Marlow. “What do you think would be appropriate? Out of 5.6 million jobs, how many do you think should have gone to our kids?”

Marlow replied that “you would think all of them would go” to American citizens, or at least be offered to them first.

Brooks countered that the correct answer was “minus 127,000.”

“People born in other countries, whether here illegally or they’re lawful immigrants, had a net job gain of 5.7 million jobs when our economy, in that 16-65 age bracket over 14 years, was producing 5.6 million,” he clarified.

“That’s what our immigration policies are doing to American families. When I was young, you had different career options. One could be in the blue-collar trades, one if you’re lucky and you had the intellectual capacity you could go to college and get the jobs associated with that,” Brooks recalled. “Well, this immigration policy that we have, on the illegal alien side, is clobbering our blue-collar workforce, the people who work with their hands.”

“In the construction trades, by way of example – but not just the construction trades – it used to be when I was growing up that you could make a good living as a bricklayer or as a roofer or as a framer – all those types of positions that illegal aliens dominate now,” he said.

“The reason that’s so important that you develop that skill is that you might be good enough to where you could form your own business, and then you could start hiring other people and giving them an opportunity on the employment ladder,” he continued. “You yourself could be very, very successful in those construction trades and other blue-collar fields.”

“That’s gone now,” he lamented. “Our American kids have a very difficult time getting on the first rung of that ladder because the illegal aliens are undercutting the wages that might otherwise be paid on a second level, deficit and debt.”

“The last study that I saw, that I found credible – all of these studies are all over the map, but this one indicated that illegal aliens cost American families about $99 billion a year in net tax losses. The families of illegal aliens are generating about $20 billion a year in tax revenues while consuming about $119 billion in services provided at the city, county, state, and federal level. That increases our deficit and debt at the federal level. It decreases the services that are available to Americans at the city, county, state levels,” said Brooks.

“Now, I have seen a study that was as high as $300 billion, and maybe that’s the right one, but I’m comfortable with the $99 billion one, which is a little bit out of date because it’s three or four years old,” he added.

“Then on a second level, of all the families in America that have an illegal alien in them, over 60 percent are on welfare. So here we are, we’re actually paying illegal aliens to come to our country based on over 60 percent of the families that have an illegal alien in them being on welfare. For America as a whole, it’s in the 30 percentile range, just to give you a contrast point,” he said.

“So you add all these things up, and we’re doing tremendous damage to our families. On the employment level, let me be really clear: it did not make any difference if you were a Hispanic American, a Caucasian American, an African American, or an Asian American. You lost ground in that 14-year period that I just mentioned to you because of lost job opportunities and wage suppression. So this is not about ethnicity. It’s not about race. It’s about protecting Americans of all kinds. That’s what this border security wall is all about,” Brooks declared.

Marlow proposed that a government shutdown to compel construction of the border wall would likely end with Brooks and his allies getting pilloried by the media, as was the case when Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) attempted to take a similar stance on repealing Obamacare.

“I want the country holding me accountable for trying to build a border security wall,” Brooks responded defiantly. “That’s the way I approach it. If the American people understand what is at stake on this issue, they are on our side overwhelmingly.”

“Now, I understand how the leftists and the media will attack, and they will distort, as they often do,” he conceded. “But, by golly, we were sent here to Washington, DC, not to cower, not to cede to the Democrats, who lost the elections control over our agenda. We were sent to Washington, DC, to fight for the things we told the American people we believed in, that caused the American people to elect us. It’s really that simple.”

“We cannot just give up on every single issue because of archaic Senate rules that empower the Democrats to block us. If we’re going to keep those rules, use them to advance our belief system on the one hand – or, better yet, we ought to get rid of those rules that empower the Democrats to control our agenda and block that border security wall,” he urged.

Brooks noted that he is running to fill the Senate seat vacated by Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom he saluted as “a great leader on border security issues.”

“America cannot afford to have anything less than that in this Senate seat when we have our election on August 15, which is five weeks from today. That’s how quick it’s upcoming,” he said.

“If anyone wants to help, I would love the help. It’s MoBrooksForSenate.com. We need it. We’re quite frankly up against the swamp critters, as I call them in Washington, DC.”

“You know, Donald Trump went to Washington to drain the swamp. Well, now the swamp’s fighting back, and they’re fighting back on behalf of Luther Strange. He’s the person who was appointed by our governor under ethically questionable circumstances,” said Brooks, referring to his opponent in the race.

When Marlow asked if Brooks had faith in the willingness and ability of the Republican caucus to deliver the promised border wall, he said yes, provided American voters “keep the pressure up.”

“This revolution started in 2010 with the Tea Party movement, and to some degree, the fervor that we had in 2010 has subsided,” Brooks observed. “Politics is an ongoing process. If there’s a vacuum, our foes will fill it. So we need to get people who care about America, who understand the foundational principles that have made us the greatest nation in world history, to gird their loins, put on their battle gear, get back into the fray, and force our elected officials in Washington, DC, to keep our promises to the American people, or else take out those who breach those promises. That’s what it’s going to come down to.”

*(THANK YOU DEMOCRATS) – ILLINOIS CREDIT WATCH: ON TRACK TO BE 1ST ‘JUNK’ STATE…

Capture

By Sara Burnett

(AP)Illinois is on track to become the first U.S. state to have its credit rating downgraded to “junk” status, which would deepen its multibillion-dollar deficit and cost taxpayers more for years to come.

S&P Global Ratings has warned the agency will likely lower Illinois‘ creditworthiness to below investment grade if feuding lawmakers fail to agree on a state budget for a third straight year, increasing the amount the state will have to pay to borrow money for things such as building roads or refinancing existing debt.

The outlook for a deal wasn’t good Saturday, as lawmakers meeting in Springfield for a special legislative session remained deadlocked with the July 1 start of the new fiscal year approaching.

Capture

That should alarm everyone, not just those at the Capitol, said Brian Battle, director at Performance Trust Capital Partners, a Chicago-based investment firm.

“It isn’t a political show,” he said. “Everyone in Illinois has a stake in what’s happening here. One day everybody will wake up and say ‘What happened? Why are my taxes going up so much?'”

Here’s a look at what’s happening and what a junk rating could mean:

WHY NOW?

Ratings agencies have been downgrading Illinois’ credit rating for years, though they’ve accelerated the process as the stalemate has dragged on between Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner and the Democrats who control the General Assembly.

The agencies are concerned about Illinois’ massive pension debt, as well as a $15 billion backlog of unpaid bills and the drop in revenue that occurred when lawmakers in 2015 allowed a temporary income tax increase to expire.

“In our view, the unrelenting political brinkmanship now poses a threat to the timely payment of the state’s core priority payments,” S&P stated when it dropped Illinois’ rating to one level above junk, which was just after lawmakers adjourned their regular session on May 31 without a deal.

Moody’s did the same, stating: “As the regular legislative session elapsed, political barriers to progress appeared to harden, indicating both the severity of the state’s challenges and the political difficulty of advocating their solutions.”

WHAT IS A ‘JUNK’ RATING?

Think of it as a credit score, but for a state (or city or county) instead of a person.

When Illinois wants to borrow money, it issues bonds. Investors base their decision on whether to buy Illinois bonds on what level of risk they’re willing to take, informed greatly by the rating that agencies like Moody’s assign.

A junk rating means the state is at a higher risk of repaying its debt. At that point, many mutual funds and individual investors — who make up more than half the buyers in the bond market — won’t buy. Those willing to take a chance, such as distressed debt investors, will only do so if they are getting a higher interest rate.

While no other state has been placed at junk, counties and cities such as Chicago, Atlantic City and Detroit have. Detroit saw its rating increased back to investment grade in 2015 as it emerged from bankruptcy — an option that by law, states don’t have.

WHAT WILL IT COST?

Battle says the cost to taxpayers in additional interest the next time Illinois sells bonds, which it inevitably will need to do in the long-term, could be in the “tens of millions” of dollars or more.

The more money the state has to pay on interest, the less that’s available for things such as schools, state parks, social services and fixing roads.

“For the taxpayer, it will cost more to get a lower level of service,” Battle said.

Comptroller Susana Mendoza, who controls the state checkbook, agreed.

“It’s going to cost people more every day,” she said. “Our reputation really can’t get much worse, but our state finances can.”

OTHER IMPACTS?

Because the state has historically been a significant funding source to other entities, such as local government and universities, many of them are feeling the impact of Illinois’ worsening creditworthiness already.

S&P already moved bonds held by the Metropolitan Pier & Exposition Authority and the Illinois Sports Facilities Authority — the entities that run Navy Pier, McCormick Place, and U.S. Cellular Field — to junk.

Five universities also have the rating: Eastern Illinois University, Governors State University, Northeastern Illinois University, Northern Illinois University and Southern Illinois University.

U.S. Border Agents Warned of ‘Open Warfare’ with ‘Grenades’ in Mexico at Texas Border

by BRANDON DARBY & ILDEFONSO ORTIZ22 Jun 2017

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.

MURDER OF MUSLIM GIRL BLAMED ON TRUMP WAS COMMITTED BY AN ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT

President held responsible for death his border policy may have prevented

| Infowars.com – JUNE 20, 2017

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.
