DHS REPORT: ‘Hundreds of Migrants’ Detained at the Border Have 'US CRIMINAL RECORDS'

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.20.19

A new report released by the Department of Homeland Security shows upwards of 1,000 migrants detained at the border have US criminal records; raising serious security concerns across the region.

“Hundreds of illegal immigrants attempting to cross the southern border as part of massive migrant caravans were found to have criminal histories in the U.S., according to newly obtained Department of Homeland Security documents,” reports Fox News.

“The DHS files were provided to House Oversight Committee Republicans in May and included internal data showing more than 1,000 migrants traveling as part of caravans to the border within the past nine months had ‘U.S. criminal histories’ and hundreds had ‘U.S. criminal convictions,’” adds Fox.

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez reached a stunning new low earlier this week; accusing the Trump administration of operating a series of “concentration camps” along the US-Mexico border.

“The United States is running concentration camps on our southern border. That’s exactly what they are. They are concentration camps. If that doesn’t bother you… I like, whatever, I want to talk to the people that are concerned with humanity that ‘Never Again’ means something,” said the left-wing lawmaker.

“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing,” she added.

The self-described Democratic Socialist made national headlines last week when she called for a $4,500 raise for Members of Congress and a “cost-of-living adjustment” for all Americans.

“It may be politically convenient and make you look good in the short term… but we should be fighting for pay increases for every American worker. We should be fighting for $15 an hour minimum wage pegged to inflation,” said Ocasio-Cortez.

“Everybody in the United States, with a salary, with a wage gets a cost of living increase. Members of Congress, retail workers, everybody should get a cost of living increase,” she added.

HEALTH SCARE AT THE BORDER: Agents Warned of ‘Ebola,’ Other Diseases at Migrant ‘Holding Centers’

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.17.19

A Border Patrol union warned members this week of the growing healthcare emergency taking place at “migrant holding centers” along the US-Mexico border; saying an outbreak of “Ebola” and other diseases can be possible in the coming months.

“Some Border Patrol agents in Texas are concerned about exposure to Ebola by a migrant fleeing the Democratic Republic of the Congo for the United States,” reports Fox News. “But more of them are worried about other illnesses frequently popping up among detainees at stations across the southern border, according to union representatives.”

“Jon Anfinsen is a National Border Patrol Council vice president and based in Del Rio, which includes Eagle Pass, where most Congolese are arriving. Anfinsen represents approximately 1,000 agents who are based out of 10 regional holding stations. Anfinsen has been an agent 12 years and said the number of people in custody and subsequent illnesses among that population is ‘unprecedented.’” Adds Fox.

“Scabies, chickenpox — we had one case of the mumps here in Uvalde. I wanna say we had measles — plenty of the flu, plenty of colds, body lice, just assorted. And some of these things, they spread like wildfires when you get into a cramped holding cell. It happens,” Anfinsen said.

US officials confirmed this week a “record number” of migrants from Central Africa are flying to South America and illegally entering the United States from Mexico.

“Undaunted by a dangerous journey over thousands of miles, people fleeing economic hardship and human rights abuses in African countries are coming to the U.S.-Mexico border in unprecedented numbers, surprising Border Patrol agents more accustomed to Spanish-speaking migrants,” reports the Associated Press.

“Officials in Texas and even Maine are scrambling to absorb the sharp increase in African migrants. They are coming to America after flying across the Atlantic Ocean to South America and then embarking on an often harrowing overland journey,” adds the author.

Less than two weeks ago, Border Patrol agents discovered more than 500 migrants from the Congo and Angola crossing the Rio Grande.

“More than 500 migrants from African nations — including Angola, Cameroon and the Republic of Congo — have been apprehended in Texas, at the Del Rio Border Patrol sector of the U.S.-Mexico border, since May 30, according to US Customs and Border Protection,” reports Fox News.

A single group of 116 migrants were apprehended at one time after crossing the Rio Grande into the United States.

According to federal agents, the immigrants’ inability to speak English or Spanish is creating “additional burdens on processing stations.”

“It remained unclear what route the African migrants had taken to arrive to the U.S.-Mexico border. Some Africans recently told NPR they traveled from Africa to Brazil and then north though Colombia and Central America,” adds Fox.

REPORT: NY to Give Driver’s Licenses to Illegal Migrants, Cuomo Vows to Hide ‘Database’ from Feds

posted by Hannity Staff - 6.18.19

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed new legislation Monday night giving illegal immigrant’s access to driver’s licenses throughout the state; sparking new fears the documentation could be used for voter fraud and other potential complications.

“Cuomo’s action came despite throwing supporters a last minute curveball by asking the state’s top civil attorney, Solicitor General Barbara Underwood, to review the measure for possible safety concerns — threatening to veto it if he didn’t like her assessment,” reports the NY Post.

“You could create a database for the feds to use to actually track down undocumented people,” Cuomo said on WAMC radio. “California passed a law, and they are now in litigation.”

“The legislation is well-crafted and contains ample protections for those who apply for driver’s licenses. If this bill is enacted and challenged in court, we will vigorously defend it,” said New York Attorney General Tish James.

The proposal passed the state Senate by a razor-thin 33-29 vote.

Cuomo’s decision comes hours after federal agents warned of the growing threat posed by contagious diseases along the US-Mexico border.
