    “Border Patrol: 300 percent spike in family apprehensions creates ‘humanitarian crisis'”

    “Apprehensions of migrants along the nation’s southern border are the highest in more than a decade, creating what the top U.S. Customs and Border Protection official described Tuesday as a mushrooming crisis that threatens to overwhelm federal authorities.

    The influx is being driven by a 300 percent increase in the number of people crossing as part of families compared with 2018. Families, along with unaccompanied children, accounted for 60 percent of all apprehensions since Oct. 1.

    “We are currently facing both a border security and humanitarian crisis along our southwest border,” Kevin McAleenan, the Customs and Border Protection commissioner, told reporters.

    During the five-month period ended Feb. 28, Border Patrol officers apprehended some 268,000 migrants who entered the United States without legal authorization. More than 76,000 entered in February alone.”

  2. The feds are trying to figure out who is behind the caravans, and getting push back from an unconcerned press. (who colludes with caravan organizers) If they weren’t known co-conspirators, they wouldn’t have this problem.

    “Source: Leaked Documents Show the U.S. Government Tracking Journalists and Immigration Advocates Through a Secret Database

    The documents detail an intelligence-gathering effort by the United States and Mexican authorities, targeting more than 50 people including journalists, an attorney, and immigration advocates”

    “OCASIO-CORTEZ AND TOP AIDE RUN OUTSIDE GROUP LEADING ‘WAR’ ON ESTABLISHMENT DEMOCRATS, DOCUMENTS SHOW”

    “Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her top aide hold majority control over Justice Democrats, a left-wing PAC waging open war on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other establishment Democrats, according to corporate filings obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

    Ocasio-Cortez and her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, obtained majority control of the political action committee in December 2017, TheDCNF reported Monday. Chakrabarti resigned from the Justice Democrats’ board in August 2018, Politico reported, and the PAC’s website no longer lists Ocasio-Cortez as a governor, but government documents show the two still hold majority control as of Wednesday afternoon.

    Ocasio-Cortez’s role with the PAC, which was a driving force behind her stunning victory in 2018, may have violated campaign finance laws, two former Federal Election Commission (FEC) members told TheDCNF.

    Ocasio-Cortez never disclosed her control of the PAC to the FEC. If the congresswoman intentionally withheld that information from the FEC, both she and Chakrabarti “could be facing jail time,” former FEC Commissioner Brad Smith told TheDCNF.

    But there’s another aspect to the story: Justice Democrats has aggressively attacked Ocasio-Cortez’s more moderate Democratic colleagues at a time when the party is divided between establishment members and progressives pushing the party left.

    Justice Democrats’ corporate filings indicate the group attacking senior Democrats isn’t just allied with Ocasio-Cortez but is also partially controlled by her as well.”

  4. Democrats just can’t bring themselves to confront the bigotry of their members. Their resolution which was supposed to condemn Omar, was so watered down that she voted for it herself. These people are vile.

  5. Those kind of films get me every time. I remember how shocking and overwhelming it was when my husband unexpectedly showed up at Navy Relief one day when I was working and he wasn’t due home for several weeks.

    I’ll never forget seeing him come through the door and not believing my eyes.

    So, I’m crying now.
