Some of the migrant families arrested at the southern border weren’t actually families.
In a pilot program, approximately 30% of rapid DNA tests of immigrant adults who were suspected of arriving at the southern border with children who weren’t theirs revealed the adults were not related to the children, an official involved in the system’s temporary rollout who asked to be anonymous in order to speak freely told the Washington Examiner Friday.

“Hospitals are closing across the country due to the burden of illegal immigration, college students find that summer jobs have dried up due to illegal immigration, and wages across the board are depressed by the overwhelming influx of cheap and illegal labor.” ~ Elton Gallegly
“Illegal immigration is a crisis for our country. It is an open door for drugs, criminals, and potential terrorists to enter our country. It is straining our economy, adding costs to our judicial, health-care, and education systems.” ~ Timothy Murphy
But then you know all this, don’t you?
There is no question! By simple logic, illegal immigration has been and continues to be a deadly invasion of guns, drugs, humans carrying diseases, taking American jobs, soaking up “free” welfare, housing, education and health care benefits and adding to America’s crime rate.

Immigration reporting tends to rely heavily on stories — stories about illegal immigrant families looking to be reunited, about TPS recipients facing potential deportation, or about legal immigrants working their way toward citizenship. One type of story that receives far less attention from the media, despite its prevalence, is from victims of foreign guest labor — American mothers, fathers, and breadwinners who lost their livelihoods to cheaper foreign replacements and outsourcing.

When a child becomes a get-out-of-detention-free card
Mindful of the leftist-led uproar over family separations at the border, immigration scammers are now taking advantage of American good will by “renting” children for cash to illegal aliens crossing the border to help them obtain quick release by the U.S. Border Patrol.
Depending on where you sit, it’s either human-trafficking or social-justice entrepreneurship in action. It was made possible when a leftist, Obama-appointed judge arrogated to herself the role of creating U.S. immigration policy and in the process incentivized the behavior. Continue reading
Statistics from the federal government show the fate of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrant ‘children’ who have come across the border with Mexico illegally or to seek asylum.
The Department of Health and Human Service’s Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) has relocated 234,414 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) to all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands from 2014 to the first five months of the fiscal year 2019 (October 2018 to February 2019) Continue reading
Mexican Cartels Using Grenade Launchers Close to Texas Border
No one should ever believe another Democrat. When they insist that there is “no crisis at the border” they are lying. They have ignored DHS Secretary Nielsen. They have dragged out liberal generals who’ve not once talked to the Border Patrol. Everybody’s got an opinion. Meanwhile just south of the Texas border, Mexican drug cartels are using grenade launchers to wreak havoc and kill their opposition..and it’s not the first time. Continue reading
Our southern border is being breached and overrun at will, and there is a hard, factual crisis unfolding there, despite a temporary decline in illegal aliens captured at the border between 2006 and 2014 due to an economic downturn. Even some of the most hardcore anti-American Democrats and former Obama officials are hard-pressed to deny that this crisis actually exists, although it seems there isn’t any number of illegal aliens swarming across the border that is large enough to move them to act proactively to secure the border and ensure U.S. sovereignty, national security and the individual economic and physical safety and security of all Americans.

Democratic Proposal: Hey, Let’s Eliminate Criminal Penalties for Illegal Immigration — and End Most Detentions
Democrats used to tell us that of course they were against illegal immigration; the relevant policy question, they said, was how to humanely and fairly treat the millions of otherwise law-abiding illegal immigrants who have been living inside the United States for years. They at least made a show out of getting tough on border security, in exchange for other ‘reforms’ — and they recoiled with indignation when Republicans accused them of supporting “open borders.” Which brings us to today’s rollout of an immigration plan… (Continue to full article)
Democrats are Freaking Out Over Citizenship on the Census Because They Want Non-Citizens Voting
Democrats do not want to know how many citizens there are in the United States. Although the Census Bureau has sought citizenship information regularly in the past, Democrats now fear that a full survey of U.S. citizens will hurt their political fortunes for years to come. Liberal state attorneys general and left-wing special interests have sued the Commerce Department to prevent the Census Bureau from reinstating a citizenship question on the 2020 Census. The case is now before the United States Supreme Court, which will hear arguments later this month… (Continue to full article)
How Bad Does Border Have To Be For Democrats To Admit It’s An Emergency?
Is there any number of illegal border crossings into the United States that would strike Democrats as an emergency? The border numbers are surging back to the bad old days. It appears that Customs and Border Patrol apprehended more than 100,000 people in March (the precise figure has not yet been released), a pace that could mean more than 1 million apprehensions this year… (Continue to full article)
Trump Threatened To Close The Border As Another Caravan Approached – And Mexico Is Taking A Hint
Mexico made changes to their humanitarian visa process. Instead of providing visas to illegal aliens at the border, they’re now providing them in the southern most part of the country. Caravans are no longer allowed to spend the night in cities and fewer Mexican citizens are providing food, water and transportations to caravan riders… (Continue to full article)
DHS Secretary Relocates Hundreds of Border Agents to Deal With Ongoing Illegal Immigration Crisis
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen ordered the redeployment and relocation of 750 of Border Patrol agents Monday. The move is part of the Trump administrtion’s ongoing efforts to address the endless illegal immigration crisis at the southern border with Mexico. “The crisis at our border is worsening, and DHS will do everything in its power to end it…” (Continue to full article)
Woman Arrested After Holding 33 Illegal Aliens in Her Home
Concepcion Malinek helped the illegals to surreptitiously cross into the United States in 2018 and 2019. She then exploited them by telling them they now owed her money for the help. Now she faces forced labor charges, The Chicago Sun-Times reported.
The 49-year-old woman helped them find work and transported them to and from the work site, while charging exorbitant fees and restricting their activities… (Continue to full article)

SEDGWICK COUNTY, KS (The Salina Post) – A man convicted in the rape of a child under the age 14 and deported in February is back in a Kansas jail.
According to the Kansas Department of Corrections, Simon Rochel-Cervantes, 46, a citizen of Mexico, spent 7-years in the Ellsworth Correctional Facility for the rape and aggravated intimidation of a witness.
He was released and deported on February 19. On March 5, he was found in Sedgwick County, according to a media release from the United State Attorney. Continue reading
Central American migrants, part of the caravan hoping to reach the US border, walk on a road in Tapachula, Chiapas state. AP
Mexico warned this week that “the mother of all migrant caravans” could be heading toward the US. Interior Secretary Olga Sanchez Cordero fears that up to 20,000 migrants from El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala are already gathering in Honduras.
“We have information that a new caravan is forming in Honduras, that they’re calling ‘the mother of all caravans,’ and they are thinking it could have more than 20,000 people,” she insisted Wednesday. Continue reading
Sperry: Cutting welfare to illegal aliens would pay for Trump’s wall
Mexico won’t have to pay for the wall, after all. US taxpayers won’t have to pick up the tab, either. The controversial barrier, rather, will cover its own cost just by closing the border to illegal immigrants who tend to go on the federal dole.
That’s the finding of recent immigration studies showing the $18 billion wall President Trump plans to build along the southern border will pay for itself by curbing the importation of not only crime and drugs, but poverty.
“The wall could pay for itself even if it only modestly reduced illegal crossings and drug smuggling,” Steven A. Camarota, director of research at the Center for Immigration Studies, told The Post. Continue reading

“But there is one principle which pervades all the institutions of this country, and which must always operate as an obstacle to the granting of favors to new comers. This is a land, not of privileges, but of equal rights. Privileges are granted by European sovereigns to particular classes of individuals, for purposes of general policy; but the general impression here is that privileges granted to one denomination of people, can very seldom be discriminated from erosions of the rights of others. Emigrants from Germany, therefore, or from elsewhere, coming here, are not to expect favors from the governments. They are to expect, if they choose to become citizens, equal rights with those of the natives of the country. They are to expect, if affluent, to possess the means of making their property productive, with moderation, and with safety;—if indigent, but industrious, honest and frugal, the means of obtaining easy and comfortable subsistence for themselves and their families. They come to a life of independence, but to a life of labor—and, if they cannot accommodate themselves to the character, moral, political, and physical, of this country, with all its compensating balances of good and evil, the Atlantic is always open to them, to return to the land of their nativity and their fathers.” ~ John Quincy Adams
In the words of Satchmo, “Now we getting warm!“
The Pentagon has identified $12.8 billion in military construction spending that could be used to fund the building of a wall on the southern border.
The money has already been appropriated but not spent and is targeted for various stateside military facilities. It’s unclear which projects would be affected.
Some states that have been allocated big chunks of money that haven’t been spent could see a hit.
California, for example, was identified as having more than $700 million in unused Army and Navy military construction that could be used. Hawaii has more than $400 million that could be used. Continue reading
NOTE: With this post we return to the archives of the first generation Federal Observer with a column from Linda Chavez writing for Jewish World Review less than one month after 9/11. It seems that all these years later – NOTHING has changed because our elected official-DUMB are more concerned about plying their (ruling) trade over a whole new crowd of ‘voters.’ ~ JB
Is it time to rethink American immigration policy in the face of a clear and present danger from foreign-born terrorists? Nearly eight out of 10 of those polled by the Center for Immigration Studies after the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon think so, including 74 percent of self-defined liberals. But what exactly can be done to prevent foreign-born terrorists from taking advantage of America”s generous immigration laws? Continue reading
A video shot at a section of the U.S.-Mexico border wall shows dozens of undocumented immigrants squeezing through a breach in the metal fence and running north into California. YouTuber Andy Martin, aka ‘Mexican Andy,’ shot the video at California’s Border Field State Park, on the border between San Diego and Tijuana, Thursday at about 4pm. In the dramatic clip, dozens of migrants can be seen gathering next to the border fence, waiting as someone appears to saw through the chain link fence behind the bollards. People can then be seen kicking at the chain link in an attempt to widen it enough for bodies to fit through. As soon as there’s a big enough gap, the undocumented migrants squeeze through the hole and then run into the town of Imperial Beach, past a white Border Patrol truck that has its sirens blaring.

The United States Constitution needs to be amended so that state legislatures that have members who can be elected by illegal aliens, or are themselves illegal aliens, are prohibited from taking part in the constitutional amendment process and the Electoral College process.
As reported by the Washington Times, on March 8, 2019, the Democrats in the House of Representatives blocked an attempt by House Republicans to pass a bill amendment that would express disapproval of state and local governments giving illegal aliens the right to vote in state and local elections. The Times reported: Continue reading
US Quarantines Over 2,200 Migrants Amid “Unprecedented” Disease Outbreaks
“We are seeing migrants arrive with illnesses and medical conditions in unprecedented numbers” … (Continue to full article)
The Trump administration’s hard-line stance on keeping migrants out is pushing asylum seekers to take remote and dangerous routes into the United States. And a wall might not be able to fix that.
The number of migrant families crossing the southwest border has once again broken records, with unauthorized entries nearly doubling what they were a year ago, suggesting that the Trump administration’s aggressive policies have not discouraged new migration to the United States.
More than 76,000 migrants crossed the border without authorization in February, an 11-year high and a strong sign that stepped-up prosecutions, new controls on asylum and harsher detention policies have not reversed what remains a powerful lure for thousands of families fleeing violence and poverty.

“Why should I capitulate to a bunch of damn criminals? This is my country, not theirs.”

SAN DIEGO — Robert (Bob) Maupin, a 79-year-old retired mechanic and self-proclaimed vigilante, has spent decades and thousands of dollars protecting the U.S.-Mexico border from his own backyard. He built his own fence along the border just footsteps north of the U.S. government fence because he said the existing fence was inadequate.
Maupin lives in Boulevard in east San Diego County—one of the most rugged, remote, and desolate terrains in the San Diego border patrol sector. He inherited the 250-acre ranch from his father who purchased it in 1948. He moved here with his wife and high school sweetheart, Jeanette, and together, they raised their two children.

There’s a growing health concern over illegal immigrants bringing infectious diseases into the United States. Approximately 500,000 legal immigrants and 80,000 refugees come to the United States each year, and an additional 700,000 illegal immigrants enter annually, and three-quarters of these illegal immigrants come from Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

A majority of “non-citizens,” including those with legal green card rights, are tapping into welfare programs set up to help poor and ailing Americans, a Census Bureau finding that bolsters President Trump’s concern about immigrants costing the nation.
In a new analysis of the latest numbers, from 2014, 63 percent of non-citizens are using a welfare program, and it grows to 70 percent for those here 10 years or more, confirming another concern that once immigrants tap into welfare, they don’t get off it. Continue reading
“We want to have a safe country. I ran on a very simple slogan – ‘Make America Great Again.’ If you’re going to have drugs pouring across the border, if you’re going to have human traffickers pouring across the border in areas where we have no protection, in areas where we don’t have a barrier, then, [it is] very hard to make America great again.” ~ President Donald J. Trump, Rose Garden Speech February 15th 2019
President Trump simultaneously declared a national emergency for humanitarian and national security reasons along the border. In the same breathe, he noted on February 15th that he would sign the ominbus bill and the bad Border Deal it contains; and in fact, he signed it shortly afterwards, acquiring authority over the $1.375 billion appropriated for the wall, while declaring his intention to spend eight billion more dollars through his authority under the national emergency declaration.
The President was left with very little choice from an intransigent, duplicitous Democratic Party leadership in control of the House, at the moment, such as Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who had vowed “not $1 for the wall.” He took a head on approach to avoid another partial government shutdown, however unwise a course it may be, while he diverts $6.5 billion to build portions of the wall that the Democrats have refused to authorize.
