Hero Soldier Gets Sick ‘Thank You’ After Working Day And Night Helping Hurricane Florence Victims

Published

on

There’s a certain type of person that joins the military typically. They are usually givers and helpers. These are individuals who are willing to sacrifice everything to help others and protect them. Even when they are not on duty, many times you will see these same people volunteer during a crisis like Hurricane Florence.

Such is the case with a North Carolina army medic who voluntarily gave ten days of his off time to help those impacted by the storm. This hero soldier worked day and night to help victims during and after the hurricane.

Unfortunately, when he got home he was the recipient of a sick ‘thank you’ when he found that his house had been raided by looters. National Guardsman Luis Ocampo, 24, told the media that these criminals literally cleaned out his home in Charlotte.

According to officials, the thieves took a gun, a large TV, a gaming system, a laptop Ocampo uses for schoolwork and even some specialty coins and jewelry. When Ocampo says they cleaned out his house he wasn’t wrong and it looks like they had a snack while doing it. Since most people evacuated for the storm, the looters weren’t afraid of being seen or caught so they probably took their sweet time.

What’s even worse is that Ocampo lives with his girlfriend and one-year-old son there. Thank goodness they were not home when this happened. I hate to think what would have happened to them. Ocampo could have lost a lot more than material things.

“I don’t know how people can be so terrible,” said Ocampo’s girlfriend, Kailey Finch. I don’t either, but some people are just plain evil and have no soul or conscience. Something like this brings the worst out in certain individuals.

“If I was (to) do that to someone, I feel like I would feel really bad afterwards. I would be like, I see this family struggling and I just messed up their life even worse,” said Finch. “It’s irreplaceable. It’s not something you can get back,” said Finch.

Beyond losing the valuables, Finch said her heart also breaks for her hardworking guardsman. “He does a lot for everybody. He always wants to make sure that everybody gets help,” she said.

The family says that they are considering an alarm system for their home. I think that is a great idea. You can get very good ones for very little these days. A big ole dog wouldn’t hurt either.

They suspect that the looters broke into the house through the back window. From there, they ransacked the place. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police are investigating the break-in and theft. Currently, they have no suspects.

When the community where Ocampo lives heard about what happened, they proceeded to pitch in and help him and his family recover from all of this. That’s what neighbors and friends do… they take care of their fellow neighbors in their hour of need.

A woman who worked with Ocampo in the National Guard named Mary Elise Capron organized a GoFundMe page to help this hero medic. People wanted to give to a man who had given so much to them. The initial goal was $5,000, but by this afternoon, the page had raised just about $15,000. Not too bad at all.

“I am honored to know him and cannot believe something so terrible could happen to someone so dedicated to the service, his family and school,” Capron wrote on the fundraising page.

Here is the full text from GoFundMe:

“Thank you so much to all who have donated, your generosity and willingness to help a soldier in need is simply amazing. The goal set has now been surpassed almost 3 times as much! With the support from the unit, family, and friends Luis and I are confident he can come back from this and rebuild. We are so grateful for these donations beyond belief. We will soon be ending donations and hope that everyone understands. We do not want to take anyone’s generosity for granted. Thank you so much again, may God bless you all.”

Wow… what a great friend Capron is and she is doing the right thing by not taking too much from people as well. I’m impressed.

It’s hard to imagine just how big a scumbag a person would have to be to loot another’s home… especially a soldier who is out helping others get through a life-changing catastrophe like Florence. I hope the police catch them and I am thrilled that at least some of what Ocampo lost will be restored.

President Trump Announced How He Just Got Mexico To Pay For The Wall

Published

...

* By

When President Trump said he would have Mexico pay for the wall on our southern border, he meant it. He just announced how they are going to do it too… through the USMCA (the revision of NAFTA). Which I suspect was the plan all along.

Very early this morning at about 4:38 am, Trump tweeted: “I often stated, “One way or the other, Mexico is going to pay for the Wall.” This has never changed. Our new deal with Mexico (and Canada), the USMCA, is so much better than the old, very costly & anti-USA NAFTA deal, that just by the money we save, MEXICO IS PAYING FOR THE WALL!”

For those doubters on Twitter (and you will see some of them below), I highly doubt the plan was ever to have Mexico pay for the wall up front. We would fund the wall and recoup the funding from Mexico. I don’t see what is so hard to understand about that. But it seems to be a financial move many can’t seem to grasp and that is beyond their comprehension.

SIGN PETITION DEMANDING TRUMP BUILD THE WALL 75,000 HAVE SIGNED

I fully support that if Congress just won’t fund the wall, having the military build it through Pentagon funding and then reimbursing them for it. Why? Because it is a national security issue and always has been. That border is a clear and present danger.

Why shouldn’t Trump have Mexico pay through the USMCA? And why all the negativity from people who are obviously poorly informed and just politically biased? They let their hate for the president dictate all their thoughts and actions rather than looking at the mechanics of the move and the benefits from it. I just don’t get these people. They have not even given this a chance and already they are shooting it down. That’s a leftist for you.

Check out the moves on Twitter over this:

Most of these people don’t seem to get that a great deal of the funding for the wall was approved before Trump started all of this. I have never seen so many people so intent on leaving themselves open to attack. What a bunch of foolish, self-involved individuals. Just sad. Build the wall whatever it takes and do it fast before one of our many enemies gets a chance to severely cripple this nation once again.

Illegal Invader Collides With Major Karma After Leaving Church – Should’ve Listened!

Published

on

An illegal alien was busted in North Carolina last week after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials. Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was evidently living for almost a year in the basement of a Methodist church while trying to get his deportation to Mexico delayed. ICE doesn’t make arrests in churches so they waited until he left this one.

Oliver-Bruno was asked to provide his fingerprints to move his petition forward. He was promptly arrested in the USCIS office when he arrived. To be fair, this guy is a convicted criminal and is not some innocent victim here. Clergy from the church formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested. The Hill has more on this misguided intervention:

An undocumented man was arrested in North Carolina on Friday after leaving a church to meet for a scheduled appointment with immigration officials, The News & Observer reported.

Samuel Oliver-Bruno, 47, was living in the basement of Durham’s CityWell United Methodist Church for nearly a year while he petitioned for his deportation to Mexico to be delayed. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement does not make arrests in churches.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services asked Oliver-Bruno to appear in person to provide his fingerprints in order for his petition to be processed. He was then arrested inside the USCIS office, the paper reported.

“Mr. Oliver-Bruno is a convicted criminal who has received all appropriate legal process under federal law, has no outstanding appeals, and has no legal basis to remain in the U.S.,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) spokesperson Bryan Cox told The News & Observer in a statement.

Faith leaders and church members who had accompanied Oliver-Bruno formed a human wall around the vehicle taking him to detention, singing “Amazing Grace” and chanting “Let him stay!” Several were arrested, according to CNN.

“It was presented as a legitimate appointment but ICE utilized due process as bait,” Cleve May, a pastor at the church, told CNN. “So we went to the appointment with him, to offer protection, knowing that ICE could not be trusted. We were thinking we would be in and out in 30 minutes.”

Reps. David Price (D-N.C.) and G.K. Butterfield (D-N.C.) released a joint statement following  Oliver-Bruno’s arrest, saying the man was “entrapped” and vowing to fight his arrest.

“Samuel’s sudden and inappropriate arrest in the middle of the Thanksgiving season reflects the callous and cruel approach we’ve come to expect from the Trump administration. As Members of Congress representing the Durham community, we will continue to do everything in our power to keep the Oliver-Bruno family together,” they said.

“In a call with us this afternoon, ICE has committed to allow Mr. Oliver-Bruno to remain in the U.S. in detention while his case is adjudicated. While this means he will not be immediately deported, we remain committed to fighting for his release.”

Oliver-Bruno was arrested in El Paso, Texas, in 2014 after using a Texas birth certificate to enter the U.S., according to CNN. He lived for 11 months in sanctuary at the Durham church, where he helped with renovations, including a bedroom and shower after CityWell agreed to take him in the facility.

Oliver-Bruno said he feared he will be deported, leaving behind his son and wife, who has lupus and depends on her husband financially, the News & Observer reported.
