VIDEO: Meet The Patriot Group Protecting Our Border In A Drug Corridor

Published

on

A group of former military, law enforcement, and security make of the patriotic group protecting a treacherous area of the border referred to as “Cartel Land” and “Cocaine Alley.” This is a high drug traffic corridor where “normal” illegals don’t dare go as the terrain is steep, rocky, and hard to cross through from Mexico into Arizona. However, it’s perfect territory for drug mules, multiple time deportees, and middle easterners wanting to come into America far under the radar, and do so at a record pace. Volunteering their time to risk their lives to protect this country, are the men and of Arizona Border Recon (AZBR).

Our Social Media Director, Amanda Shea, got the chance to meet with members of AZBR.

AZBR consists mainly of veterans who want to still serve the country after being released from the military. They do this critical work voluntarily and at their own expense, because they love our country. Please share this video, follow their Facebook page, and contribute to their cause if you can.

Brian Kolfage Pushes Back Against Shep Smith’s Claims Trump Has Built No New Wall

Last Wednesday, longtime Trump antagonist & Fox News anchor, Shepard Smith, claimed that the president has built no new sections of border wall. Smith made the remark after President Trump Tweeted out a CBP video of a portion of the border wall that is under construction, stating that “The wall is going up very fast…”

The Hill reported:

“Fox News chief anchor Shepard Smith on Wednesday disputed President Trump’s recent remarks about border wall construction, saying on air that “there is no new wall.”

Smith’s remarks were in response to a tweet from the president that said the wall is “going up very fast.”

“So far, despite the president’s claims to the contrary, there is no new wall,” Smith said. “Existing barriers have been replaced. Same span. The total of repaired barrier is about 60 miles along that 2,000-mile border.”

“The president also said in the tweet that the wall is going up rapidly. It is not. As we just reported, there’s no new wall. Only replacement for walls which were in need of repair or upgrade. Those are the facts,” Smith added.”

WATCH:

The problem with Smith’s claim is:

  1. There was never any wall in some of the places it is being built
  2. Trump never claimed that it was “new wall” in his Tweet, although he could have & he would have been factually correct

Brian Kolfage, who just oversaw the completion of our first section of border wall, took umbrage with Smith’s claims & those made by hosts on CNN and proceeded to dismantle them in a series of Twitter posts.

We have visited several border states & toured sections that only had Normandy barrier or metal posts in the ground in order to keep vehicles out. Many of the sites we toured had no pedestrian barriers, such as bollard walls.

Smith is wrong to say that President Trump has built “no new wall.” There wasn’t a wall in the places the government is building. Trump is absolutely putting up “new wall.”

In the meantime, We Build the Wall has constructed our first section of border wall where none existed before. We’re about to start on sections 2 & 3 soon, too. Smith should put that in his pipe & smoke it.

Large Group Assaults Guard With Rocks On Border, Border Patrol Fires Pepper Balls

Published

* By

This happened right in front of the border wall we just built. While I was documenting the construction of our wall, I spoke with a Border Patrol agent who said he had been “rocked” over 20 times in 11 years, and that most agents have rocks thrown at them at least once during their careers. This attack comes on the heels of four Mexican nationals firing automatic weapons at a Border Patrol marine unit.

The El Paso Times is reporting:

“U.S. Border Patrol agents fired pepper ball shots at swimmers in the Rio Grande during a confrontation Sunday evening on the El Paso-Juárez border.

A Border Patrol spokesman said agents fired the non-lethal rounds after a security guard from the International Boundary and Water Commission was allegedly assaulted by a group throwing rocks.

Juárez families regularly use that portion of the Rio Grande for recreational swimming in summers when the river is flowing with water.

The confrontation occurred as dozens of Mexican families with children were playing in the river across the border near the old Asarco site in El Paso.

A cellphone video showed at least a half-dozen Border Patrol agents on U.S. soil confronting more than a dozen swimmers in the water on the U.S. edge of the river.

The video was shared on the YouTube page of La Polaka, a tabloid news website.”

El Mexicano newspaper reported that a confrontation began when a guard told swimmers not to be crossing the middle of the river to the U.S. side. Swimmers were trying to dive from the U.S. side into the river.

Agents responded to a report by a guard for the International Boundary and Water Commission saying that he had been assaulted, Border Patrol spokesman Agent Ramiro Cordero said.

The six-minute video shows Border Patrol SUVs rushing to the scene and agents standing on land while the swimmers remain in the water. The tall metal border fence is visible a few yards behind the agents.

A Border Patrol statement said that agents encountered a large group throwing rocks and refusing to leave. When the group refused to stop, agents fired pepper balls to disperse them.

El Mexicano reported that the Border Patrol fired “rubber bullets” but the Border Patrol said that agents actually fired pepper balls.

The Border Patrol is equipped with modified paintball guns, named the Pepperball Launching Systems, that shoot balls containing pepper-spray powder.

“When they (projectiles) hit the floor or a person, it opens up and release the power and it irritates you and you leave or stop coming forward,” Cordero said.

It is unknown how many people may have been struck by pepper ball pellets, Cordero said. There were no reported injuries.

The video was filmed from a distance on the Mexico side and it is difficult to see if it filmed agents firing or anyone throwing rocks.

The swimmers dispersed and returned to the Mexican side, which is near the Casa de Adobe museum along the riverbank where Texas, Mexico and New Mexico meet.

The riverbank on that portion of the Rio Grande on the U.S. side is blocked off by tall, metal border fencing but the Mexico side include parkland accessible to the public.”

Here’s a short video of our wall being constructed.
