DHS Just Made A Huge Discovery At The Southern Border That’ll Put Many On Edge

Concern over Syrian refugees entering the United States has greatly escalated since the terror attacks on Paris last Friday.

Honduran authorities recently discovered five Syrians with doctored Greek passports who were intent on entering the United States.

One report concerning Syrian refugees is sure to spark even more controversy.

Two federal agents operating under the umbrella of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) are claiming that eight Syrians attempted to cross the U.S. border from Mexico.

Border Patrol agent and NBPC Local 2455 President Hector Garcia spoke to Breitbart Texas: “Border Patrol agents who we represent have been contacting our organization to voice concerns about reports from other agents that Syrians crossed the U.S. border from Mexico in the Laredo sector. Our agents have heard about Syrians being apprehended in the area from other federal agents. At this time, I cannot confirm or deny the Syrians have crossed, for security reasons.”

He added that Local 2455 “will be issuing an officer safety bulletin advising Border Patrol agents to exercise extra precautions as they patrol the border.”

The Pew Research Center reported in 2014 that non-Mexicans crossing U.S. borders illegally now outnumber Mexicans crossing the border illegally. Many come from Central American countries, but other countries worldwide are represented as well.

Donald Trump recently said: “I have a real concern that people coming into this country are coming in for very bad purposes and they are coming all different ways, coming in for some very bad purposes.”

What do you think of the report from the Border Patrol agents that eight Syrians attempted to cross the U.S. border from Mexico?

He Escaped Jail And Ran Thousands Of Miles Away- Then He Snapped A Pic That Got Him Caught

One fugitive may have run like the wind and made it past the border of Mexico, but that did not keep the long arm of the law from using Facebook taunts to nab their man.

Nicholas Grove, 38, from Idaho escaped from the Payette County Jail in late August, 2014, climbing over a razor wire topped fence and running off. He ultimately made it over 3700 miles to the south to Cancun, Mexico.

According to KBOI2, “Grove had been in the Payette County Jail for charges on unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, possession of burglary tools and an invalid license.” He escaped several weeks after his arrest. 

The fugitive, who must have been feeling pretty safe, began posting pictures on Facebook taunting law enforcement. “I’ve had more help from total strangers than any of my ‘friends’ or family,” Grove wrote.

He made several posts alluding to living in Mexico, possibly in Cancun.

“Social media certainly played a roll originally because this certain individual bragged about his escape on Facebook,” said Brian Underwood, a U.S. Marshal who has been working on the case.

Authorities arrested him over one year after his escape in Tulum, Mexico, near Cancun.

“He caused us some grief and so we’re glad to see that he’s off the streets,” Payette County Sheriff Chad Huff said. “Ultimately, he’ll get his day in court in Payette County and we’re thankful again for the Marshal.”

Look What the Mexican Military Just Did To An American TODDLER At The Texas Border

Saida De La Torre is grateful that she and her daughter are alive, after the Mexican military shot up her car near the border community of Camango last week. 

The incident, which left her 18-month-old daughter shot in the back and her SUV riddled with bullets, happened last week, while De La Torre was in Mexico visiting family.

The American citizen described what happened to ABC News affiliate KRGV“I was going to pick up my oldest daughter and was on the road, when we heard gun shots,” De La Torre said. “I told my cousin that we needed to go back to my parent’s house, because it looked like something was going down. When I made a turn, I saw a vehicle with soldiers traveling really fast.”

The woman recounted seeing a black vehicle speed by, which was similar to the Dodge Nitro in which she was traveling. She pulled over for a period of time and then turned around to head back towards her parents’ home.

The crisis appeared to have passed, when soldiers came out of nowhere trailing her vehicle.

“Everything seemed to be normal while I was driving back, but then I heard gun shots again,” De La Torre said. “They sounded a lot closer. I began to realize the soldiers were following me. I thought they were following the truck that I had seen speeding,” she added. “I think they got confused and thought my truck was the one they were first chasing. They started firing at us.”

“I got to the house,” De La Torre said. “I got off the truck and ran toward my father who was outside.”

A Rio Grande City mother and daughter are recovering after being reportedly shot by Mexican soldiers.

The woman recalled the soldiers pulled up to the house and got out of their vehicle with weapons drawn.

Her father confronted the soldiers, who nonetheless proceeded to check De La Torre’s vehicle and found nothing.

In the meantime, De La Torre took her daughter from her SUV and realized she had been shot. She plead with the troops to help get the toddler to the hospital, but they simply left.

Her daughter eventually was transported to a San Antonio hospital where she underwent surgery and was released on Monday.

De La Torre filed a complaint with local authorities, who apologized for their error. They also informed her that they had captured the people they were pursuing when the case of mistaken identity occurred.

De La Torre said that Mexican authorities promised to repair her truck or help her buy a new one. 

The area where the incident occurred “is dominated by the Gulf cartel, and has been the scene of turf battles both between factions of the Gulf gang and the rival Zetas cartel,” the Associated Press reports.

Hispanic Repubs Just Issued This MAJOR Warning To GOP Candidates Right Before Debate

The night before the GOP presidential candidates meet in Boulder, Colo. for their third debate, a group of conservative Hispanic groups gathered and issued a warning.

The Tuesday night meeting was “held less than a mile from the site of the debate at the University of Colorado’s Boulder campus, was organized by the American Principles Project’s Latino Partnership. It was also attended by leaders from other grassroots groups, including the Latino Coalition, Hispanic Leadership Fund and the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference — all key groups engaged in building support for Republicans among the Latino community,” the Huffington Post reports

The one thing all the leaders of the groups could agree on is that Donald Trump is not their candidate.

The partnership’s president Alfonso Aguilar, who served in the administration of George W. Bush, said, “We are not going to shy away from the fact that if Mr. Trump is the nominee, we will encourage Latinos to write their own candidate in.”

“We still have hope that we can help elect a Republican candidate, but we are 100 percent united behind the fact that Mr. Trump is not our guy,” Massey Villarreal, former head of the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, said before the meeting according to the Washington Times

Rosario Marin, former treasurer of the United States under President George W. Bush, stated plainly, “Heed our warning. Don’t expect us to come to your side during the general election. You are not with us now, we will not be with you then. You don’t need our vote now, you won’t have it then. You insult us now, we will be deaf to you then. You take us for granted now, we will not recognize you then.” Marin indicated that she is supporting her former boss’ brother Jeb Bush in the 2016 race.

The American Principles Project’s Latino Partnership felt it was appropriate to gather and issue their warning in the swing state of Colorado, given the key Hispanic demographic in the electorate. The Rocky Mountain state went for Barack Obama in 2012, with the president carrying 75 percent of the Latino vote. He took 71 percent nationally.

The Republican candidate who did the best among Latinos in recent elections was George W. Bush, who garnered 44 percent nationwide in his narrow 2004 victory.

“We have not worked on behalf of this party for decades only to see our community work undone by the divisiveness of some candidates,” Marin stated. “I will not name names, but one in particular has earned my absolute disgust and contempt. I will not dirty my mouth by pronouncing his name.”

Aguilar did not shy away from naming names. “At this point, I think we’ve been very clear that we are not going to endorse or attack any candidate besides Trump,” he said. “If we don’t see a course correction, then I think we may start naming other names.”

Historic, ‘Potentially Catastrophic’ Hurricane Has This State Bracing For The Worst

The strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Western hemisphere is poised to make landfall Friday night on Mexico’s central Pacific coast; however, the monster storm also has Texas bracing for its impact.

“The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami reported that the Category 5 storm’s maximum sustained winds had grown to 200 miles per hour (mph), making it the strongest storm on record in the eastern Pacific and Atlantic,” Fox News reports

“This is an extremely dangerous, potentially catastrophic hurricane,” center meteorologist Dennis Feltgen said.

Feltgen said the hurricane will be a tropical storm by the time it hits Texas, but will combine with already heavy rains drenching the area, making flooding very likely. “It’s only going to make a bad situation worse,” he said.

The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood watch through Sunday morning for Dallas Fort-Worth, Austin and San Antonio. Additionally, a coastal flood warning will be in effect in Corpus Christi through Friday night; and a coastal flood advisory will be in effect until Saturday night in Galveston, 50 miles south of Houston. 

The eye of Hurricane Patricia is tracking to make landfall near the tourist community of Puerto Vallarta. Thousands have already evacuated the region.

“Director of Mexico’s National Water Commission Roberto Ramirez says that Hurricane Patricia is powerful enough to lift up automobiles, destroy homes that are not sturdily built with cement and steel and will be able to drag along people caught outside when the storm strikes,” according to Fox News. The storm may produce up to 20 inches of rainfall in the Mexican coastal areas it hits, which could trigger mudslides.
