In the quest to secure our American borders, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has been stepping up raids and deportations in an effort to get a handle on the significant issues that have arisen from the open borders policies of President Donald Trump’s predecessors.
Director of ICE, Tom Homan states the agency plans to “significantly” increase operations targeting businesses which employ illegal immigrants, however, he said the department’s strategy would be different than those employed under former President Obama. Homan stated last year – “Now we’re going to prosecute the employers who knowingly hire illegal aliens. We’re going to detain and remove the illegal alien workers.”
Since President Trump took office in January 2017, immigration arrests have risen over 40% and deportations are up 34%. The Washington Post reports – “ICE conducted 1,360 employee audits last year and arrested more than 300 people for alleged criminal and civil immigration violations. Businesses were ordered to pay $97.6 million in judicial forfeiture, fines, and restitution and $7.8 million in civil fines, the agency said.”
Friday federal authorities in Dallas announced the indictments of eight MS=13 gang members on a wide range of criminal charges. This comes after approximately 10 raids just in the last month that have uncovered human traffickers, trafficking victims exploited for labor and sex including children, as well as gang and cartel operations.
According to a news release from ICE – “A federal grand jury this week indicted eight MS-13 gang members on the following criminal charges: racketeering conspiracy; attempted murder in aid of racketeering; assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering; conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering; and using, carrying and possessing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.”
“Gangs — and especially transnational gangs like MS-13 — are responsible for many of the violent crimes that occur throughout the country,” said Special Agent in Charge Katrina W. Berger, HSI Dallas. “Some of these violent gang members have illegally entered the United States as unaccompanied alien children. As demonstrated with this HSI-led investigation, an ongoing coordinated multi-agency law enforcement effort is the best means of curtailing gang numbers, gang finances, and gang effectiveness to operate.

“MS-13 is one of the most violent and ruthless gangs on the streets today,” stated U.S. Attorney Nealy Cox. “Working with our federal, state and local partners, we are determined to dismantle this organization wherever we find it in order to make our communities safer in Texas.”
“The Department of Justice will not allow MS-13 to terrorize any community, school or street corner,” said Attorney General Sessions. “The gang has more than 10,000 members following its barbaric motto of ‘kill, rape, and control’ across 40 states, and that threatens law-abiding Americans. Today’s Indictment of eight MS-13 members—including five who are charged as illegal aliens in possession of firearms — makes clear that the Trump Administration and this Department will continue to go on offense against MS-13 with every lawful tool at our disposal. I want to thank our fabulous Department of Justice attorneys for their hard work on this case as well as our partners with HSI, ICE, the Dallas County District Attorney’s office, and the Dallas and Irving Police Departments. This case is yet another step toward dismantling MS-13 and taking its members off our streets for good.”

“Evil gangs like MS-13 are perpetrators of senseless violence in our communities,” said Texas Governor Greg Abbott. “The Indictment of these individuals shows a continued commitment to going after these dangerous individuals and keeping our communities safe. The State of Texas will continue to offer any assistance and resources necessary to crack down on these criminals, and I thank our federal, state, and local partners in law enforcement for their ongoing efforts to address gang violence across Texas.”
According to the indictment, MS-13 is a national and transnational gang composed primarily of immigrants or descendants from El Salvador. Branches or “cliques” of MS-13, one of the largest street gangs in the United States, operate in cities around the country, including the Irving Loco Salvatruchas (ILS) clique in the Dallas area. MS-13 members and associates are required to commit acts of violence to join the gang, and to maintain membership and discipline within the gang. One of the principal rules of MS-13 is that its members and associates must attack and kill rivals, known as “chavalas,” whenever possible. Members and associates of the ILS clique held meetings in multiple locations in the vicinity of Irving, Texas, including several public parks and a tunnel under Irving.
According to the Indictment, beginning on or about July 2016, and continuing through on or about the date of the Indictment, Hernandez-Fuentes, Gutierrez-Ramos and Cruz, participated in a racketeering conspiracy that included attempted murder, conspiracy to commit murder and robbery.
Across the racketeering conspiracy and other counts, the indictment charges the following defendants for their alleged involvement in six attacks, including multiple machete attacks, upon 10 victims, including members or associates of the rival 18th Street Gang.

President Trump has called several times for the abolishing of MS-13, a national and transnational gang that DOJ describes as comprised of illegal immigrants from El Salvador. In spite of much opposition from open borders proponents and leftist progressives, as well as some on the right, President Trump and his administration are taking steps to secure American borders.

Cory Booker Sexual Assault Accuser Posts Update & We Now Might Know Why He’s So Theatrical
Senator Corey Booker, aka ‘Spartacus,’ has been accused of sexual assault, and it’s not from who you’d think.
If the allegations are true, it might explain why he’s so theatrical on the Senate floor.
Yep, you guessed it, Booker has been accused of assault by a gay man.
I’m sure the Democrats will call for an immediate investigation by the FBI. Oh wait, they only do that to Republicans.
The Gateway Pundit is reporting:
“An anonymous gay male stepped forward today and released a shocking description on how he was sexually assaulted by Senator Cory Booker back in 2014.
The man claims Booker came to his workplace to speak, met him as he was coming out of the men’s room, and then pulled him back into the restroom and sexually assaulted him.
The young man is a gay man and Democrat. The man tells a very detailed analysis on what took place at his work.
The man says he reached out to Ronan Farrow but the #MeToo reporter did not show much interest in his story.
The Gateway Pundit reached out to his attorney Harmeet Dhillon who told us — The man is considering the situation and has no further comment at this time.
The accuser posted an update following his initial statement.
The man says he suspects his accusations will be ignored because he is a man and not a woman. He also believes it may be too late for him to call for an investigation.
Maybe the FBI should get involved and open up an investigation on the New Jersey senator?
What’s fair is fair, right?

“Cory Booker Sexually Assaulted Me and why it won’t matter to the #metoo movement
Yes, you read that right. The man who would be the modern incarnation of the Thracian Gladiator turned rebellion leader, once tried to aggressively force me to give him a blowie in my (then) workplace restroom. That may be a hard pill to swallow, given Mr. Booker’s distinguished political pedigree as a champion of liberal populist issues and marginalized communities. But despite his whimsical penchant for theatrical displays of impassioned
defiance, he’s just another asshole.
Now I know what you might be thinking if you’re a Booker backer. You’re thinking that I’m full of shit. But before you jump to that conclusion, let me tell you a little about myself. If we were to travel just 4 years back in time, you and I would find solidarity on the subject of Cory Booker. As a matter of fact, he was a hero of mine. I was and still am, a liberal in principal with a record of voting exclusively for Democrats since I was 18 with the exception of the 2016 election cycle. But it was in the summer of 2014, when Senator Booker visited my workplace, that my political worldview began to shift.
I had the chance to meet and speak with him at some length in an informal group setting. I made it quite clear that I was a great admirer of his, especially with regard to his record of being an advocate of the LGBT community. I left the meeting prior to the rest of the group, just as everyone was finishing up and went to use the restroom. It was there that Booker and I bumped into each other again for what would prove to be a much less pleasant
Here is a description of the incident as I described it to a lawyer:
I stopped to use one of the building’s single-occupancy restrooms. Upon washing my hands prior to leaving, I heard knocking on the door. When it comes to these restrooms it is customary to knock first in case someone is using it, even though there is an inner lock. When I opened the door, Mr. Booker was there. He smiled and very gregariously said “Hey!” We engaged in some brief idle chitchat in the entryway and then he asked me to speak in private. What happened next, happened so fast that it was hard for me to comprehend what was going on. It was one of those surreal moments where what was happening was such a deviation and such a perversion of one’s natural daily routine that I hardly knew how to react. He pulled me into the restroom, albeit not too forcefully and slowly pushed me against the restroom wall. He said that “Being a hero was a serious turn-on”. He continued, “The Senate appreciates fine citizens like you. Especially this Senator.” He then put his left hand on my groin, over my jeans and began to rub. I seem to remember saying something like “What is happening?” It was a bit like having vertigo. He then used his other hand to grab my left hand with his right and pulled it over to touch him. At the same time, he disengaged from rubbing me and used his left hand to push me to my knees from my shoulder for what was clearly a move to have me perform oral sex on him. At that point, I pulled away quite violently and told him I had to go. I did not see him again before he left.
If you find that far fetched, then this next part might give you reason to dismiss the rest of this story completely. I am a gay man. If you’re still with me, I should be clear that I am not making any suggestions contradicting Cory Booker’s public stance on his own sexual orientation. In my experience, straight men are fairly non-discriminating in terms of their receptiveness to the prospect of oral sex. And despite the unusual cultural trend towards pathologizing people we don’t know, I make no claim to know what Mr. Booker considers himself to be privately in terms of sexual labels. But if I were to hazard a guess as to his motivation, I would say that he saw an opportune moment to exploit what he thought to be a devoted sycophant. But that turned out to be a serious miscalculation.
Now I realize that I have been pretty vague on the details. And there’s a reason for that. I’ve struggled with a history of abuse in my life going as far back as childhood but I’ve been able to manage the enduring trauma for the most part. Just 3 years prior to my encounter with Mr. Booker, I was subjected to sexual harassment from an employer. Subsequent to disclosing the incident, I was swiftly fired despite providing definitive proof and involving a third party investigation. But I got over that incident. And I learned the unfortunate cynical lesson that coming forward with the truth can oftentimes be more punishing than rewarding. But with Booker it wasn’t just harassing words. It was physical. And he wasn’t some supervisor who held sway over my job. He was and is a highly influential, political power player. He could have (and still could) destroy my life if I were to disclose my name and the full facts of my case. So as with my previous experience, I initially let it go. And I feel the need to reiterate that this was someone I looked up to. Do you have any idea how disenchanting an experience like that must feel like?
Fast forward 2 jobs, 3 therapists and one suicide attempt later to the latter half of last month. Watching Mr. Booker’s histrionic defense of alleged sexual assault victims was so laughably ironic, so jarringly cringeworthy and so triggering that it put me into a state of depressed rumination. I wanted so badly to speak out but I was highly ambivalent about the consequences of going public. So I reached out to two lawyers anonymously. One of them got back to me; Harmeet Dhillon of the Dhillon Law Group, a 1st amendment trial lawyer and RNC committee member. Once we established privileged communication, I told her my story; disclosing my real name and the details of my case. This included the precise date, location, some corroborating photographic evidence and two possible hearsay witnesses that I had told my story to subsequent to the incident. It was, at the very least, much more probative evidence than what was brought forth during the Kavanaugh debacle. Ms. Dhillon responded to me with respectful immediacy, offering candid advice and compassion tempered with pragmatism. And in a refreshingly rare act of bipartisanship, she recommended I contact Ronan Farrow, the father of the modern #metoo movement himself.”

It’s worth mentioning the verified Twitter account of lawyer Harmeet K. Dhillon liked tweets related to the accuser. That confirms he likely spoke to her as he said in the statement he shared. She’s not refuting his claims. Neither has Ronan Farrow. pic.twitter.com/Eot3ow54Xu

New Jersey Senator, Cory Booker, accused of sexual assault by a man https://t.co/6Etdy0PpzS
— Richard Armande Mills (RAM) (@RAMRANTS) October 20, 2018
The American Thinker had more:
“Sen. Spartacus Booker of New Jersey is shaping to be quite a piece of work.
After grandstanding through the Senate confirmation hearings about the evils of sexual harassment as he sat there in high-eyed judgment on the blameless Judge Brett Kavanaugh, calling himself ‘Spartacus’ for his feigned moral courage, he found himself exposed as a hypocrite as word of his 1992 first-person essay about how he sexually harassing a woman made its way back to print, in that Internet-is-forever reality.
Not much moral authority over Kavanaugh, pal.
Now it’s gotten even worse: Some man has come out and said Booker sexually assaulted him, in 2014.
The accusation, published on GatewayPundit’s page and given a curt no-comment from Booker’s lawyer, appears substantial.
Apparently, sexual harassment has been a way of life for him, given the long span in years between each fairly strong looking accusation. And this is one of the Democrats’ new generation of leaders, the answer to its Jurassic Park of current leadership.
Booker is a grandstander, a posturer, an attention-seeker, and now a sexual problem. Bob Menendez, the other New Jersey Senator, seems to be getting a run for his money. When are New Jersey’s voters going to get rid of these people?”
Thief Steals Combat Vet’s Military Mementos – ‘I’d Give My Soul To Get Those Things Back’
Stealing from others is a despicable act in & of itself, but stealing from a veteran who fought for our freedom & security is a whole other ball game. What kind of scumbag would do this kind of thing? We’re hoping this vet gets his belongings back.
Fox 4 Kansas City reported:
“A Mobile veteran served our country overseas more than a decade ago, but the mementos he brought home were stolen.
Carl Sanders Jr. served for four years and had one tour in Iraq.
Most of his memories were packed up in a duffel bag, but it ended up being stolen.
“I don’t regret one second of anything I’ve done serving my country and the people I served with,” he said.
To remember that time in his life he packed up a bag filled with most of his memories. Things like an Iraqi flag and helmet he found on a mission, but most importantly his uniform.
“It’s the boots I lived in, I fought in,” Sanders said. “A soldiers boots and soldiers uniform that’s more important than anything.”
Losing those keepsakes is difficult for Sanders to swallow as he tries to never forget his military service.
“Those things actually reminded me of who I served with, where I’ve been, some of the things we’ve had to do and I don’t ever want to forget that,” Sanders said. “I don’t ever want to let that go.”
While he still has some things, a few pictures and some patches, what was stolen from him goes beyond a uniform.
“I still got a lot of memories in my head, some are hard to remember, some are hard to forget, but as time goes it kind of fades away,” Sanders said. “That’s why I’m glad I do have some of these things, I can always pick up these pictures and look back and always remember.”
While he holds onto what he does have, he hopes the thief realizes what was taken.
“Outside of monetary value things go a lot further than that,” Sanders said. “You never know what something might mean to someone, maybe the smallest little object.”
A soldier’s treasured memories from a half a world away, stolen from a man who served this country.
“God forgive me, but I would give my soul to get those things back,” Sanders said.
From what little he does have left, he is currently putting together a scrapbook for his family so his service is always remembered.”
