Trump Just Launched Major Border Patrol Operation In Top Sanctuary Slum

Published

on

President Trump works every day on the illegal immigrant issue. He’s determined to reinstate the rule of law and ensure our sovereignty. He has launched a major Border Patrol operation in a top sanctuary slum as part of his efforts to keep Americans safe.

This stretch of the border has been visited by both Vice President Pence and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen. The Border Patrol has just launched Operation Blazing Sands this past month in an effort to stop illegal aliens and to end human smuggling operations.

The area in question is along a stretch of border in the southeastern-most part of the California desert, according to agent Justin Castrejon. In mid-August Operation Blazing Sands was activated in a collaboration between the Border Patrol’s El Centro and Yuma sectors.

“This operation leverages the strengths of El Centro Sector and Yuma Sector to better target transnational criminal organizations,” stated Gloria Chavez, who is the chief of the El Centro Sector. This is deadly business and these agents are risking their lives going after the cartels and smugglers in this region.

From The San Diego Union-Tribune:

“Agents apprehended 2,427 people illegally crossing that part of the border from October 2017 through July 2018, before the operation began, according to data from the sector. That’s about eight people per day and just over 10 percent of the 23,452 people caught in the entire El Centro Sector during that period.

“The sector splits its 70 miles of border among three Border Patrol stations. The 20-mile area where Operation Blazing Sands is focused, known to agents there as the “east desert,” makes up close to 29 percent of that border and is patrolled by agents from the Calexico station.

“Calexico station is the fifth busiest along the southwest border, Castrejon said.

“About 10 miles outside of the town of Calexico, the landscape turns from farmland to short brush and small mounds of sand. The All American canal runs between Interstate 8 and the border, and the canal’s steep sides and strong currents sometimes trap border crossers who are often already exhausted from their journey through the desert in Mexico.

“For many trying to sneak across the border in the El Centro Sector, their goal is Interstate 8, Castrejon explained. If they can make it to a car that’s supposed to pick them up there, they can disappear into traffic before they are detected.

“Near the Gordon Wells exit on Interstate 8, the All American Canal curves under the highway, removing the dangerous obstacle from border crossers’ path and allowing the freeway to stretch closer to Mexico. The sand begins to mound higher in this part of the desert though the dunes don’t yet reach the peaks of those further east at Buttercup, a popular dune buggy area.

“A Border Patrol camera tower stands near the exit, and agents frequently make “cuts” in the area, checking for footprints where they had dragged the sand smooth earlier in the day.

“Just before the canal turns away from Mexico, the border fence changes from 15- to 20-foot bollards used in town to a “floating fence” that was built around 2009. The floating fence has similar bollards, or posts placed close together, that are a few feet shorter, and its base allows agents to prevent sand from mounding into dunes along the fence until it is easy to climb over. If the sand gets too high, the fence can be lifted and set down again on top.

“Despite the heat and the sand that drags and slides underfoot, the area around Gordon Wells has become a popular place to cross, Castrejon said.”

Agents are constantly scanning for illegal aliens who are attempting to cross at these points. They point to footprints on the Mexican side of the fence and a piece of rope tied between bollards to act as a ladder. Sun-blasted water bottles are scattered on the ground along the fence.

Agent Castrejon explained that as he was patrolling in the eastern desert just about a month ago, less than 10 minutes after he checked the area by Gordon Wells, another agent monitoring the camera tower alerted him to a group that had just crossed there behind him. “As much as we’re watching out for them, they’re watching us,” Castrejon said. A spotter probably told the crossers he had just left and waved them on over the border.

This particular group of illegal immigrants got to a car and headed west on the highway. Unfortunately for them Castrejon caught them and arrested a U.S. citizen smuggler and four unauthorized immigrants.

If the immigrants make it to the highway, agents will attempt to pull their car over. If they won’t stop and pull over, agents collaborate over their radios to let each other know where the car is headed. In some cases, agents will deploy a “vehicle immobilization device” that punctures the car’s tires with hollow needles and slowly lets the air out.

The gradual release of air from the tires keeps the passengers safe from being hurt by a blowout. When the car is forced to stop, the agents are there to arrest the occupants. Then the agents go back to the border looking for any that might have been left behind. Sometimes smugglers will leave those who are sick, too old or too young if they slow down the group. They are acceptable casualties… all they care about is the money.

Agent Castrejon cannot say how many agents are involved in the operation. But he did say, “We’re not going to sit by and let a part of the border not be in our control.” He also declined to say how long the operation would last because the Border Patrol doesn’t want to tip off smugglers.

Operations like this by the Border Patrol are necessary. The wall will curtail a lot of this, but we will always need the Border Patrol and the military on the wall once it goes up to patrol it. Operation Blazing Sands has been a great success so far. That’s great news for Americans.

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.”

Somali Whose Deportation was Thwarted by Passengers Is Gang Rapist With Links To ISIS

I have no understanding of people who would allow foreigners needs to take precedence over their own citizens.

These deranged SJW lunatics should have been arrested. When does the left not ever defend a terrorist?

From Breitbart:

A Somali man whose deportation was thwarted when passengers on the aeroplane taking him out of the country began complaining is a convicted gang rapist linked to an Islamic State fighter.
29-year-old Yaqub Ahmed was about to be returned to Somalia via a commercial flight to Istanbul, Turkey, but around a dozen ‘social justice warrior’ passengers on the aeroplane became aware of his situation when he began groaning and wailing.

They started complaining “They’re separating him from his family” and chanting “take him off the plane” in rowdy scenes recorded by several people on their mobile phones.

Rather than throw off the disruptive passengers or have them arrested for obstructing the course of justice, however, officials buckled to the mutinous flyers and took Ahmed off the flight, while his supporters applauded and shouted: “You’re free, man!”

However, the Mail on Sunday has now revealed that the busybodies were championing a convicted gang rapist, and that one of his accomplices travelled to the Islamic State to fight as a jihadist after their crime.

In August 2007, Ahmed was part of a four-strong rape gang which lured a 16-year-old girl who had become separated from her friends on a night out to a flat in Crouch End, North London, pretending they were waiting for her there.

Ahmed and his accomplices then took turn raping the teenager, who was only saved when neighbours overheard her cries for help and rang the police. All denied the crime, but were convicted with the help of extensive DNA evidence.

The judge sentenced them to a relatively short nine years each — although police detective Emma Bird seemed happy with the terms, saying they “reflect[ed] the seriousness of this offence” — but criminals almost never serve their full term in the United Kingdom, and Ahmed was out after a paltry four years.

It is understood that fellow rapist Ondogo Ahmed travelled to Syria to fight for the Islamic State just months after his release, while accomplice Adnan Mohamud — like Ahmed, a Somali granted refugee status — is still in Britain.

“We need to deport these people and members of the public should not be allowed to obstruct the proper course of justice,” commented Tory backbencher Philip Hollobone.

“Officials accompanying the deportee need to react appropriately to passengers who do not know what is going on. To simply walk off in the face of passenger confusion is not good enough.”

Britain’s record both tracking and deporting illegal migrants in general is very poor.
