Border Patrol Apprehends 1,300 Illegal Aliens In Southern Texas In One Day – VIDEO

Via CBS 4 News:

“Border Patrol agents assigned to the Rio Grande Valley sector detained 1,300 undocumented immigrants in one day, according to the agency records.

The record number of holdings happened on Tuesday. Agents said it is the highest number recorded by RGV agents since June 2014.

“Well this just signifies that the amount of people that are coming through this sector is nonstop,” said Herman Rivera, U.S. Border Patrol Agent.

According to U.S. Border Patrol records, many of the immigrants in holding are from Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.

During fiscal year 2018, there were over 99,000 requests for asylum according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service.

Thousands are entering through the Rio Grande Valley.

Agents tell CBS 4 News they’re seeing the increase in crossings near Western Hidalgo County and Starr County.

“The Rio Grande Valley sector apprehends people from all parts of life, all over the world,” Rivera said. “The RGV sector has seen people from 40 different countries this year alone.”

While other sectors are seeing a caravan of migrants arrive, RGV Border Patrol Chief Rudy Karisch said the Valley sees numbers like that often.

“Every 14 days we have as many people that showed up over there as part of the caravan,” Karisch said.

Three months into fiscal year 2019, over 201,479 people have been detained trying to enter the country illegally through the Southwest Border.

“Transnational criminal organizations utilize crossing large groups of people like family units, in order to tie up the border patrol agents who leave the area open leaving it open for drugs or people to cross,” Rivera said.”

Two weeks ago, board members of We Build the Wall, Inc. were at the Rio Grande in Texas & witnessed many migrants from Honduras illegally crossing the border. Triple-amputee veteran Brian Kolfage, Brandon Darby, Kris Kobach, Tom Tancredo, and Sheriff David Clarke were among the board members who witnessed the illegal entry.

Our team was interviewing landowners in Texas in order to begin building the wall on private property.

Kolfage has raised over $20 million for the wall & we expect to begin construction in about a month-and-a-half.

Here’s how you can help us build the wall:

Arizona Hit Hard By Fentanyl Deaths From ‘Mexican Oxy’ Pills Smuggled Across Border

Published

on

Advisory board members of We Build the Wall, Inc. traveled to Arizona last week to meet with landowners & surveil the border. We also held a town hall event where we explained to Arizonans how the cartels are trafficking illegal drugs between Mexico & the U.S.

Border & cartel expert Brandon Darby spoke at length about the crisis, as did former Kansas Secretary of State, Kris Kobach and former CO Congressman Tom Tancredo.

ABC News’ affiliate station in Phoenix published a report today on the deadly effect that drug trafficking is having on Arizona.

KNXV-TV reports:

“Aaron Francisco Chavez swallowed at least one of the sky blue pills at a Halloween party before falling asleep forever.

He became yet another victim killed by a flood of illicit fentanyl smuggled from Mexico into the Southwest — a profitable new business for drug gangs that has pushed the synthetic opioid to the top spot for fatal U.S. overdoses.

Three others at the party in Tucson also took the pills nicknamed “Mexican oxy” and police flagged down by partygoers saved them by administering naloxone overdose reversal medication. But the treatment came too late for Chavez, who died at age 19.

The death of Chavez and many others, officials said, illustrate how Arizona and other southwestern states bordering Mexico have become a hot spot in the nation’s fentanyl crisis. Fentanyl deaths tripled in Arizona alone from 2015 through 2017.

“It’s the worst I’ve seen in 30 years, this toll that it’s taken on families,” said Doug Coleman, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration special agent in charge of Arizona. “The crack (cocaine) crisis was not as bad.”

With plenty of pills and powder sold locally out of the arriving fentanyl shipments that are also distributed around the U.S., the drug that has surpassed heroin for overdose deaths has touched all Arizona demographic groups.

Stamped with “M” on one side and “30” on the other to make them look like legitimate oxycodone, the pills started showing up in Arizona in recent years as the Sinaloa cartel’s newest drug product, said Tucson Police Lt. Christian Wildblood.”

At our town hall, Darby explained why Mexico is a failed narco-state, and why we can only expect things to get worse unless we build the wall.

The ABC 15 report continued:

“The fentanyl that killed Chavez was among 1,000 pills sneaked across the border crossing last year in Nogales, Arizona by a woman who was paid $200 to tote them and gave two to Chavez at the party, according to court documents.

At the same crossing last month, U.S. officials announced their biggest fentanyl bust ever — nearly 254 pounds (115 kilograms) seized from a truckload of cucumbers, enough to potentially kill millions. Valued at $3.5 million, most was in powder form and over 2 pounds (1 kilogram) was made up of pills.

The tablets in most cases are manufactured in primitive conditions with pill presses purchased online and the amount of fentanyl in each pill can vary widely, Wildblood said.

“There is no quality control,” he said.

Most fentanyl smuggled from Mexico is about 10 percent pure and enters hidden in vehicles at official border crossings around Nogales and San Diego, Customs and Border Protection data show. A decreasing number of smaller shipments with purity of up to 90 percent still enter the U.S. in packages sent from China.

Although 85 percent of the fentanyl from Mexico is seized at San Diego area border crossings, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration’s 2018 National Drug Threat Assessment said seizures have surged at Arizona’s border and elsewhere around the state.

DEA statistics show Arizona fentanyl seizures rose to 445 pounds (202 kilograms), including 379,557 pills, in the fiscal year ending in October 2018, up from 172 pounds (78 kilograms), including 54,984 pills, during the previous 12-month period.

The Sinaloa cartel’s ability to ramp up its own production of fentanyl and label it oxycodone shows the group’s business acumen and why it remains among the world’s top criminal organizations, despite the conviction in New York this week of cartel kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman Loera, Coleman said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says fentanyl is now the drug involved in the most fatal overdoses in the U.S., with fatalities from synthetic opioids including fentanyl jumping more than 45 percent from 2016 to 2017, when they accounted for some 28,000 of about 70,000 overdose deaths of all kinds.

CDC figures for Arizona show the statewide deaths involving synthetic opioids excluding methadone, largely from fentanyl, rose from 72 in 2015 to 123 in 2016 and then skyrocketed to 267 in 2017.”

Here are the highlights of our border town hall in Tucson, Arizona. Speaking in-depth about the emergency on our border is Brandon Darby, Steve Bannon, triple-amputee veteran Brian Kolfage, Kris Kobach, Tom Tancredo, and Angel Parents Mary Ann Mendoza & Steve Ronnebeck.
