Illegal aliens attack US-Mexico border patrol agents, killing one by crushing his skull with rock

Early yesterday morning, November 19, 2017, responding to “activity” at the US-Mexican border near Interstate 10, in the Van Horn Station area of Big Bend, Texas, two Border Patrol agents were attacked by illegals.

One agent radioed for help, saying he was injured. Other Border Patrol agents responded and found the two agents both seriously injured. The agent who had radioed for help was transported to the hospital where he is in “serious condition”. The second agent, Rogelio Martinez, was found unconscious with injuries to his head and body, and later pronounced dead. (Breitbart Texas)

National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) is the organization that represents approximately 16,000 of our nation’s Border Patrol agents.

Brandon Darby and Ildefonso Ortiz report for Breitbart Texas, Nov. 19, 2017, that NBPC President Brandon Judd, who is also a Border Patrol agent, said:

“What we know is that Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez appears to have been ambushed by a group of illegal aliens whom he was tracking. Our agents’ reports from the ground say that he was struck in the head multiple times with a rock or rocks.

The other agent arrived on scene a short time later and was also ambushed and struck in the head with what is believed to have been a rock or rocks. These disgusting acts and complete disregard for human life need to stop immediately. Family members of slain Agent Martinez will never get to see him come home again all because we have failed to secure our borders from such criminals.”

The Border Patrol’s Special Operations Group and agents from CBP’s Air and Marine Operations are searching the area for the suspects or witnesses. The FBI’s El Paso office is leading the investigation.

Agent Rogelio Martinez, 36, a Border Patrol agent since 2013, is an El Paso native. He is survived by his fiancee and son.

Emory Crawford, a friend of Martinez, told KVIA-TV:

“He would be the type of guy to give the shirt off his back and wouldn’t ask for nothing in response. Unfortunately, it was him. He was such a good guy, it’s so unfortunate. It’s not surprising at all (that he served in the Border Patrol), because all he wanted to do was just help people and help the world and try to make a difference.”

President Trump tweeted:

Donations to help Martinez’s family and his wounded partner can be made to the Big Bend Agent Fund, started by the BPA Family Network. To donate, click here.

There should be a law authorizing U.S. Border Patrol to shoot border trespassers on sight.

Kate Steinle’s last words: “Help me, dad”

Kate Steinle: Murdered by an illegal alien in sanctuary San Francisco

A child’s last words, should they perish before their parents, should be “I love you.” This is so heartbreaking.

From Fox News: The second day in the trial of the homeless illegal immigrant from Mexico charged with killing Kate Steinle featured testimony from a witness to the slaying. 

Michelle Lo took the stand on Tuesday to tell the jury, with the help of an interpreter, what she saw the night of July 1, 2015 when Steinle was shot.

Lo said she was on vacation in San Francisco with her family at the time of the shooting. She remembered a man dressed in black who “looked like a homeless person” and was spinning around in a chair “grinning and laughing” who made her uncomfortable.

She said she and her family continued along the pier before hearing a “very sharp scream” and seeing a woman on the ground. And she said she saw the same man from earlier walking away.

Lo had taken pictures on the pier before the shooting occurred and both Steinle and the defendant, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, appeared in them. One showed Zarate sitting in one of the aformentioned chairs and another showed Steinle walking near him.

During the defense’s cross examination, attorney Matt Gonzalez questioned Lo based off her initial police interview at the time of the shooting, during which she said she didn’t really notice Zarate.

After Lo repeatedly said she didn’t remember certain details, Gonzalez read portions of her interview transcript. She confirmed to the jury that at the time of the interview she said, “I didn’t pay too much attention to him” and “looked because [I] was passing by but not intentional.”

She also confirmed that Zarate’s presence in her pictures was coincidental.

Following Lo, the jury heard from two other witnesses, Maria Moreno and Aryn Carpenter, who were staying at a hotel near the pier at the time of the shooting. The pair said they could hear “screams like you’d hear in a horror film” and saw a large group of people hovering around what appeared to be a body.

They said they were later able to I.D. Zarate for police because he had been “the only person walking away” and they remembered that he had a “scowl on his face.”

San Francisco Police Department Officer Raymond Ortiz also testified Tuesday. He was part of the investigative team that processed the crime scene. He showed the jury pictures of some evidence obtained that day including crime tape around the chair Zarate had reportedly been sitting in, crime scene markers around Steinle’s tan sweater and sandals, and medical equipment near large blood stains.

Zarate, 54, admits shooting Steinle, but says it was an accident.

Steinle’s father testified Monday that before she died, she said to him: “Help me, dad.”

The prosecution said those were her last words.

While Garcia’s immigration status is what brought the case into the national spotlight, jurors will not hear evidence about that, and it will not be a factor in the trial.

Steinle’s murder became a signature issue for Donald Trump as he was running for president. He invoked the murder in calling for the construction of a wall on the Mexican border and stepping up deportations and cracking down on illegal immigration.

Los Angeles targets contractors who might work on border wall

Council member Gil Cedillo believes Mexico, not three US states, is California’s “dearest” neighbor

Demorats: All for bullying when it fits their political agenda.

From Fox News: The city of Los Angeles wants to require contractors to reveal whether they have ever been involved with President Trump’s border wall construction.

City lawmakers say residents have a right to know whether companies are working on the controversial agenda.

The city council voted on Tuesday to require companies working with the city to say whether they had worked on building, design, or sold materials for “any proposed border wall between Mexico and the United States of America.”

“We want to know if there are people who do business with the city of Los Angeles … who wish to profit from building a wall that would divide us from our nearest and dearest neighbor Mexico,” said Councilman Gil Cedillo.

Tim Murphy, board president of CALBX, called the move “absurd” and said it sets a dangerous precedent for discrimination against companies.

“They’re moving beyond the political theater and hyperbole that this issue generates,” Murphy told “Fox & Friends.” “They are creating, in fact, a political blacklist, threatening any company that would express an interest, not actually build, but express an interest in working on the border wall.”

State Sen. Ricardo Lara wants to expand the move, preventing all of California from doing business with companies involved in the border wall.

Congressional Democrats, meanwhile, are threatening a government shutdown over border wall funding when the government must negotiate a new federal budget in October.

Illegal immigrant who had been removed from the US seven times crashed his van and killed a father-of-three

Illegal immigrant/killer Garcia-Velasco

From Daily Mail: An illegal immigrant, who has been removed from the United States seven times, had consumed ’12 beers and was driving at 100mph’ when he crashed his van and killed a father-of-three.

Nemias Garcia-Velasco, 32, who is from Mexico, was going over 100mph when he lost control of his 2001 Dodge Ram work van and crashed, killing 58-year-old Silvano Torres.

Prosecutor Ryan Lindberg said Garcia-Velasco was driving down Interstate 80 around 1pm on Wednesday when the incident occurred.

Garcia-Velasco told officers that he had consumed 12 beers the previous evening into the morning of the crash, according to the Omaha World-Herald.

During Garcia-Velasco’s hearing, Lindberg also said the man had been removed from the US a total of seven times. After two deportation hearings, in 2009 and 2011, Garcia-Velasco was forced out of the country and the five other times were considered ‘voluntary returns’.

Lindberg also added that Garcia-Velasco had also been convicted of having false citizenship papers prior to the crash, just a day after the Fourth of July holiday.

Garcia-Velasco’s blood-alcohol level was .243 when it was checked at a hospital after the crash, according to the Herald.

At the time, Torres was riding unrestrained in the cargo area of the van. He was pronounced dead at the fiery scene.  Another passenger, Jesus I. Gonzalez, 16, was treated at the hospital and released the day of the crash.

Garcia-Velasco suffered from severe burns to his face and was taken to the Nebraska Medical Center at the time.

Rosa Flores, who had been dating Torres, said he loved talking about his two daughters and his son.  Torres had documentation to be in the US, she told the Herald, adding that he had lived in Omaha for nearly six years.

The pair were on their way to their respective homes after leaving a job patching a roof because it got too hot.

Garcia-Velasco was charged with motor vehicle homicide in the death of Torres. His bail was set at $2 million.

Muslim Sympathizer Angela Merkel Says Border Walls Won’t Solve Immigration Issues

merkel muslim

What would you expect from a womyn who claims that Islam isn’t the cause of terrorism? Perhaps Merkel should take a look at the Ramadan Bombathon numbers.

From Yahoo: In a jab at U.S. President Donald Trump, German Chancellor Angela Merkel denounced the use of border walls during her visit to Mexico City on Saturday.

Speaking on a panel discussion with Mexico President Enrique Pena Nieto, Merkel argued that building border walls disregards the root of immigration issues.

“Obviously the main reason for people leaving must be addressed on site first, which means putting up walls and cutting oneself off will not solve the problem,” Merkel said, as translated by Reuters. Improving standards of living and employment opportunities everywhere should be prioritized, she said.

Her comments take aim at Trump’s election pledge to make Mexico pay for a “big, fat, beautiful wall” along the U.S.-Mexico border to keep immigrants from crossing into the U.S.

A long record exists of such walls failing and friendly diplomacy succeeding, said Merkel, whose government has welcomed more than a million refugees into Germany since 2015.

“It’s an issue you can study well in the history of China with the (Great) Wall of China, you can study it in the history of the Roman Empire,” she said during the panel. “Essentially, only when great empires have managed to forge sensible relationships with their neighbors and to manage migration has it been a success.”

North Carolina school district recalls yearbooks over Trump quote

yearbook quote

The inappropriate and, of course, raciiiiiiiiist comment

Good grief.

From Fox News: A North Carolina high school recalled its yearbooks after officials saw a senior’s quote which read “Build that wall” ascribed to President Donald Trump — but the move drew criticism online.

Yearbooks for Richmond Early College High School in Hamlet were recalled because some senior quotes were considered controversialThe News & Observer reported.

“Earlier this week, it was discovered by school administration that Richmond Early College yearbooks had errors and inappropriate comments,” the school district said on Facebook Tuesday. “The principal immediately collected the distributed yearbooks.”

The school district apologized and said it was working on making corrections with the yearbook publisher.

“As a district, we do not and will not tolerate inappropriate conduct toward any of our students,” the post said.

School and district officials found several quotes deemed inappropriate, school district spokeswoman Ashley-Michelle Thublin said. She said that included the “Build that Wall” comment that became one of Trump’s campaign slogans last year.

“Only a handful of annuals were distributed before the mistake was discovered by the principal,” Thublin said in a statement. “Those were taken back up the same morning and the rest were not distributed.”

She did not answer a question from Fox News about which other senior quotes aside from the “wall” one were considered inappropriate.

An image of the senior quote was posted on Facebook Tuesday by user Artney Ellerbe, the Richmond County Daily Journal reported.

“So Richmond county school system allowed this to be printed in their 2017 year book,” Ellerbe captioned the post.  “I already knew this city was racist. Get a court date you’ll find out. This doesn’t surprise me at all.” Ellerbe’s caption concluded with “#Share.”

“I feel that young lady only stood up for her freedom of speech by using the quote of her choice,” Charity Davis, a mother of a freshman at the school, told the Daily Journal. “Every senior was given the opportunity to choose a quote. It was her right as an American to choose any quote under the sun.”

Thublin said none of the students are being disciplined.

It’s too late to get the books reprinted so students are being refunded. They cost $30 to $39 dollars based on time of purchase.

Congress’ budget deal has money to build the wall

Don’t believe what the MSM tells you.

In the video below, Mick Mulvaney deftly and lucidly explains the budget deal that recently was approved by Congress. As the director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Mulvaney certainly would know the budget deal better than any so-called journalist.

Beginning at the 8:37 mark, Mulvaney says:

“We are building this [the US-Mexico border wall] now. There is money in this deal to build several hundreds of millions of dollars of this [solid metal fence] to replace this [wire fence]. That’s what we got in this deal and that’s what the Democrats don’t want you to know. This stuff is going up now. Why? Because the president wants to make the country more safe. This [pointing to a wire fence] doesn’t stop drugs and doesn’t stop criminals from crossing the border.”

Mick Mulvaney was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 2011 — the first Republican since 1883 to represent South Carolina’s 5th congressional district where he served until President Trump nominated him, and the Senate confirmed him, to be Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB).
