Illegal Alien Invasion Coming by Land and by Water


EDINBURG, Texas – Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector (RGV) intercepts four smuggling attempts resulting in 54 apprehensions.

Thursday morning, Weslaco Border Patrol Station agents received information regarding illegal aliens being harbored in a Mercedes, TX hotel. Agents and Mercedes Police Department officers approached the room door and encountered two Honduran females, illegally present in the United States. No smuggler was identified.

Simultaneously, Weslaco Border Patrol Station agents alongside Edinburg Police Department officers approached an Edinburg, Texas, hotel suspected of harboring illegal aliens. Six were apprehended from several rooms, including two possible smugglers.

Thursday afternoon, United States Coast Guard riverine units working near Mission encountered a raft with four illegal aliens making its way to the United States’ riverbanks. The aliens quickly jumped off the raft in order to avoid apprehension. The suspected smuggler began to submerge under water and began yelling for help. Coast Guard crewmen were able to recover the Mexican national and turn him over to Border Patrol agents. McAllen Border Patrol Station agents working in the nearby brush, apprehended the three outstanding illegal aliens that absconded from the raft.

Additionally, 42 illegal aliens were discovered in a Mission residence utilized as a human smuggling stash house.

Border Patrol processed all subjects accordingly.

The public is encouraged to take a stand against crime in their communities and report suspicious activity at 800-863-9382.

President biden deserves full credit for what's happening at our southern border. He nor his minions want to acknowledge there is even a problem there. At first they said there was no border crises. After it became too obvious for even them to deny, they then stated the border is under control and they are sticking to that story. Joe or Kamala won't even come have a look. I guess they are afraid of being connected to the problem, how pathetic. We have a clown in charge and he is running a circus.

There you go again ME SOMETHING, proving yourself to be a pathological liar. Is that one of the requirements to become a liberal? Most anything you say is some sort of lie. It's either a straight out fabrication or some partial truth that you use to twist the actual truth. Your above attempt is a perfect example. Yes those are my words but only part of them and the way you displayed them takes the meaning completely out of context, AS USUAL. It did start under the last couple of months of President Trump but, it was totally the fault of biden for stating he would work on amnesty, stop the border wall and many other things that would benefit illegals as soon as he took office. I would be ashamed if I were you. I'm only stating what I am sure is what many, many people believe about you.

ME Someone, Mon, 06/21/2021 - 17:57

"It did start under the last couple of months of Trump" -CGM5

"Yes those are my words" -CGM5

If it started under trump and his policies were still in place, it shows his policies were ineffective. Doesn't matter what Biden (allegedly, you have not shown any proof) said at the time as he was not president and no one knew if he would win or not.

Not sure what that has to do with the here and now. The utter failure by the CURRENT administration is the issue it’s intellectually dishonest to conflate it with something else.


What “proof” are you looking for you mean the record numbers of illegal immigrants currently streaming over our southern border?

At this point only a complete idiot or a paid shill for the left would attempt to deny the current administration’s part in facilitating illegal immigration as well as drug smuggling and human trafficking!

ME Someone, Mon, 06/21/2021 - 23:14

You prove it, you are the ones making assertions.

Haha you know what I’m saying is true right? Just stop you’re a LIAR and everyone knows it!

Also during the Dem presidential debate when every single candidate, when asked if they would provide healthcare for illegal immigrants, raised his or her hand.

ME Someone, Mon, 06/21/2021 - 23:17

And that has not happened has it? An article on this site even said that the feds refuse to reimburse texas hospitals.

Doesn’t matter that it hasn’t happened yet.  Like I said apparently they got the message they’re coming in droves!

You do realize democrats have been pushing for universal (government run) healthcare for a decade right? That’s what Obamacare was all about it was a stepping stone towards achieving that goal. 


ME Someone, Tue, 06/22/2021 - 15:21

America is the only major "1st world" country to not have some form of universal healthcare for its citizens. China and Russia even have universal healthcare. All of Europe has universal healthcare. Canada and Mexico and most of south America has universal healthcare.  Why is universal healthcare bad? 

Also when Biden said he would not build one more foot of border wall… because you know, barriers don’t work except those surrounding the Capital ;)

ME Someone, Tue, 06/22/2021 - 15:22

So if someone was climbing over the fence to your backyard you would assume that they had peaceful intentions?

There’s a difference. The Capital grounds are considered “public property”, so up until the time when people unlawfully entered the Capital or committed other unlawful acts such as riotous activity, the protestors were well within their rights.

ME Someone, Tue, 06/22/2021 - 22:15

The capitol grounds were closed to the public at the time because of COVID.

I am glad you admit that they entered unlawfully and were rioting though.

ME Someone, Wed, 06/23/2021 - 08:05

"people unlawfully entered the Capital" -BLANC09

Wrong. The capital maybe but the capital grounds were not “closed” the demonstrators were issued a permit ;)

ME Someone, Tue, 06/22/2021 - 22:44

Mitch Mcconnel, AKA republican #1, said it was a riot and even blamed trump. You are just lying to yourself at this point.

Not to mention; <-fighting police

1.5 million in damages:

If you think they didn't have weapons;

Here they are literally chanting "hang mike pence"

Gallows they brought outside the capitol:

Add ending Trumps “remain in Mexico” program and reinstating “catch and release” and you have a recipe for disaster!

ME Someone, Mon, 06/21/2021 - 23:14

Again, the surge started under trump, his policies were still in place, proving them ineffective. The mexico policy is in regard to people that are already here and trying to immigrate LEGALLY anyway.

Jeff L, Tue, 06/22/2021 - 05:47

You love Biden for doing absolutely nothing. Please do list a number of his accomplishments that aren't directly related to the end of the planneddemic. I won't hold my breath as I'd die before you could reply with an actual answer.

ME Someone, Tue, 06/22/2021 - 08:17

I don't love Biden at all, he is just waaaaaaay better than trump. Biden wasn't elected because people liked him, America rejected trump, a vote for Biden was a vote against trump, not necessarily for Biden.

Doesn’t matter when they arrived or whether or not they are trying to enter legally, the “remain in Mexico” policy was put into place in order for officials to be able to determine if asylum claims were legitimate prior to being released into the United States.

ME Someone, Wed, 06/23/2021 - 12:35

So you dont care if they are trying enter legally of not, I knew you would eventually admit it. 

According to you this policy was only in place in 2020, it couldn't have made that much of a difference in only a year anyway.

Oliver Willis lol.

Thanks for outlining the fall of America never too early to start working on revisionist history for the purpose of indoctrinating the next generation of brainwashed liberal malcontents ;)

ME Someone, Tue, 06/22/2021 - 15:17

Revisionist history huh?

Really rich coming from a Republican who's party is trying to say that the riot/insurrection on the Capitol was just a protest. Aren't Republicans also trying to prevent the slavery era being taught in schools?

Please republicans are doing no such thing! What they oppose is the teaching of critical race theory which teaches if you’re born black you’re automatically “oppressed”, and if you’re born white you’re, by virtue of your skin color alone, systemically racist…the very opposite of what Martin Luther King Jr. said that people should be judged by the content of their character, not by the color of their skin!

ME Someone, Wed, 06/23/2021 - 20:32

I didn't say anything about "critical race theory". I was talking about the 1836 project that Abbott signed.


Joe Biden is the true racist Kamala said so during the Dem presidential debate ;)

Hard to judge YOU by the content of your character alone since, in my opinion, you’re severely lacking of such.

As for the so-called “insurrection”…blame Mayor Bowser! She had 340 national guard troops at her disposal she put them on TRAFFiC CONTROL.
