Dozens of Illegal Aliens from South America Apprehended in South Texas


EDINBURG, TX – Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector (RGV) agents interdicted two human smuggling attempts resulting in 21 apprehensions.

On Jan. 12, RGV agents received information of a residence in Roma possibly being used to harbor illegal aliens. Agents and Starr County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the location and encountered 16 aliens from Central America, Nicaragua, and Mexico illegally present in the United States. No caretaker was identified.

At the residence, agents encountered an abundance of cold/flu medication and unsanitary conditions commonly found at illegal immigrant stash houses, where illegal aliens are unable to adequately social distance.

The following day, McAllen Border Patrol Station agents observed suspicious activity and attempted to conduct a vehicle stop on a Dodge Durango near Madero, Texas. As the vehicle came to a stop, multiple people fled. A search of the immediate area resulted in the apprehension of five illegal aliens from Mexico and the Dominican Republic including the driver.

THANK YOU joe biden for giving the USA the gift that keeps on giving. He needs to be impeached.

ME Someone, Fri, 01/14/2022 - 10:44

So Trump should have been impeached (for a THIRD time) for the surge he had in 2019 right? Or do you only want to punish democrats for things republicans do also? You don't have to answer, we all know the answer.

Besides, the border patrol itself says this surge started under Trump in September of 2020.


CGM5, Fri, 01/14/2022 - 11:35

Besides, the border patrol itself says this surge started under Trump in September of 2020.

Oh, you mean right after biden during his campaign speech encouraged them to rush the border? Yes, we all remember that. 

ME Someone, Fri, 01/14/2022 - 22:49

Misinformation, in the "surge the border" video republicans always misquote he clearly says "surge to the border all those people seeking asylum", seeking asylum is a form of LEGAL immigration.

And you didn't even get the setting right, it wasn't a "campaign speech" it was at a democratic debate moderated by an official representing Latin America.

But remember republicans Rand Paul said it himself; "misinformation works"

ME Someone, Fri, 01/14/2022 - 11:00

Great job by Bidens Border Patrol for catching them! Too bad republicans don't give you the credit you deserve! But they are seditionists that hate the government, it's actually part of their platform.

Did you happen to catch Kamala’s interview with Craig Melvin on the Today Show talk about someone who’s completely clueless!

I mean seriously, is she REALLY the best that democrats can do man y’all are SO screwed lol.

ME Someone, Fri, 01/14/2022 - 22:52

I have told you this before, a vote for Biden was not necessarily a vote for Biden himself, it was a vote AGAINST trump, America spoke and they said NO to trump, to the tune of the largest margin in history of 8 million more votes. 

CGM5, Fri, 01/14/2022 - 13:13

According to the polls, most people are definitely giving biden the credit he deserves. I do every chance I get.

ME Someone, Fri, 01/14/2022 - 22:56

Not Biden's Border Patrol, I am the only one thanking them every time they do a good job, kinda odd for people who say they support them. But seditionist republicans did beat police officers at the capital with blue lives matter flags and fire extinguishers, so it's really no surprise you people are hypocrites.

CGM5, Sat, 01/15/2022 - 08:51

You are so full of crap! The only reason you say anything about the Border Patrol is to troll. Everyone that has read your statements knows you hate law enforcement. You are so full of crap!

ME Someone, Sat, 01/15/2022 - 12:12

As I have said before, I don't hate law enforcement specifically, I just don't like people or groups that take away American citizens rights, I point out when plenty of other people and groups do the same thing, like republicans and their voter suppression bills.

You would think republicans would be against people who try to take rights away also, but since they do it themselves they support the other groups that do as well. Republicans did try to take over the government by stopping a legal election to install a reality show host as dictator. But republicans failed, because they are failures. Now they are starting to be charges with sedition, and the bigger people involved will be charged with even more, probably treason.

ME Someone, Sat, 01/15/2022 - 12:53

Yeah I didn't think anybody would have a intelligent or proper rebuttal.

Seems like the republican effort to lower school standards and education in general is working quite well indeed.

ME Someone, Fri, 01/14/2022 - 22:52

"ho"? Trumps wife is a literal pornstar.

You sure are hung up on the mean orange man. Did he touch you inappropriately? Tell us where he touched you. Go ahead we're all waiting

ME Someone, Sat, 01/15/2022 - 06:26

Right here: points to constitution.

It’s like she’s high all the time maybe she should consider laying off the wacky weed ;)

Which is why democrats want to (unconstitutionally) federalize our election laws no voter ID required ;)


ME Someone, Sat, 01/15/2022 - 11:59

Voter ID has never been an issue before, wonder why it is now? 

Besides if you make it 100% free that would be fine, otherwise it would be a poll tax, which is illegal. It also has to be very easily accessible other wise it would be an undue burden to voting, also illegal, those are the issues with it for most people. Mail every voter an ID for free and there would be no problem.

Although there is no problem now with voting, all the republican run investigations have proven that since they have come up with no issues with the election that Trump lost by 8 million votes, the largest margin in history.

ME Someone, Sat, 01/15/2022 - 14:52

That's not what I said. I said if it wasn't easy to get it would be an undue burden to voting. Which is the law. But republicans don't care about the law apparently.

It's very telling that you have to lie and misinterpret things to even be able to attempt to have a point.

Except it is easy to get. And any claim that it’s not, or claiming that it’s somehow discriminatory, is total BS.

ME Someone, Sat, 01/15/2022 - 16:24

Show me, prove it. 

Is it mailed out or do you have to go and get it? Burden on the elderly and disabled, also not everyone has the money to buy a car or hire a cab. Does it cost? Poll tax which is illegal. Lots of things to consider, which is the law.

Easiest is to just mail every eligible voter a free one, like they do with social security cards. You don't have a problem with that do you? Of course you will make something up to anger yourself about it I'm sure.

Not going to be “convenient” for all. If it’s important enough to you, then get off your dead ass and do what’s required ;)

ME Someone, Sat, 01/15/2022 - 16:20

No, you just don't want it to be convenient for the people you don't want voting. The voter suppression bills that target blue voting areas and not red ones is proof enough of that.

"get off your dead ass and do what’s required ;)"

You really do not care about the elderly and disabled do you? Of course you dont.

Just mail every eligible voter a voter ID for free. Easy.

There’s a process already in place for the “elderly and disabled” it’s called absentee voting look it up ;)

ME Someone, Sat, 01/15/2022 - 17:27

Ok, so why not just mail an ID to every eligible voter for free?

Why not allow everyone absentee voting? 

Why are you against everyone voting?

Why not this…if it’s important enough to you, then get off your dead ass and do what’s required ;)

ME Someone, Sat, 01/15/2022 - 22:27

So you don't think we should make it as easy as possible for every legal eligible American citizen to vote? 

ME Someone, Sun, 01/16/2022 - 17:02

Standing in line for hours (like BLANC09 has said he himself has had to do) is not easy for someone with a disability that doesn't qualify for absentee ballots under the new restrictions republicans imposed on absentee voting with their voter suppression bills. No one should have to wait in line for hours just to have a right to vote, we can make it easier.

Just simply mail every eligible legal voter a ballot by mail, several states have been allowing anyone to vote by mail for years and some states do ONLY mail in voting with no issues whatsoever.

You are desperately trying to create a problem so you can make a solution that suits republicans more that democrats, it is very obvious to anyone paying attention.

Still, after nearly a year nobody has explained how lowering the voting hours and voting places/voting machines in primarily blue voting areas and not doing the same in red areas is in the name of voter/election integrity. But it's in at least the texas voter suppression bill, and I suspect most of them that passed last year in dozens of states.

It’s already easy. We also have plenty of early voting time even with the new laws. Stop whining about things just to whine. I personally don’t know anyone upset with the changes.

ME Someone, Sun, 01/16/2022 - 22:49

Republicans: "Stop whining about all of the voter suppression bills we have passed!"

We sure do!! With a VOTER ID card! Do you have an issue with showing ID to vote?? I mean if not send yourself 1k in cash to yourself through the mail. It didn't get there??? IMAGINE THAT

ME Someone, Sun, 01/16/2022 - 16:50

Nope I do not have an issue with showing an ID to vote, but the law is very clear, if you have to spend money to vote it is a poll tax, which is illegal. If there are unnecessary burdens to voting, those are also illegal. So having to make an appointment and wait at the DMV (some people cannot take off work to do so) to purchase an ID is illegal as the law is written. 

That is why I propose that every eligible legal voter just simply be sent a federal government issued ID in the mail for free automatically. They do it with social security cards with no issue, and the stimulus checks were sent out without any major issues. That should satisfy you right? 

Besides, you are trying to solve a problem that really doesn't exist. Even republican run investigations have not found significant voter fraud. You are simply wanting to make it harder to vote because when everyone votes republicans lose.

As long as you're okay with showing ID to vote! We've found common ground??? Maybe not tho because I know you're full of shit. By the way you can file for identification ONLINE in 2022 

ME Someone, Mon, 01/17/2022 - 06:36

Not everyone has a computer/phone with an internet connection.

It's simple, just mail everyone a federal ID for free like they did with the stimulus checks.

Not everyone who lives in The United States is eligible to vote. Your method simply doesn't pan out. ID required.

ME Someone, Mon, 01/17/2022 - 17:01

Go by social security numbers, as I have said before, the social security administration has all of that information on file. Use the methods they did to send the stimulus checks to get them to the actual people and we have a solid plan.

Republicans cannot win on that level playing field they like to talk about so much.  Resorting to hyperbole, insults & innuendo helps them convince each other that their shared cognitive dissonance is some kind of reality, & I suppose it is, in the same way a schizophrenic's hallucinations are perceived as reality.

I find your post aligning with some things I have been thinking today.  I once lived in the area in which the recent hostage nightmare took place at the Beth Israel Synagogue.  I have been expecting some of the nutters that lurk here to holler and scream about this fool who was clearly deranged and focus on him since he seems to be Islamic and was attacking worshipping Jews.

Yes, he was a whackjob.  Yes, I am enormously glad the hostages were unharmed.  And yes, I am not overly disturbed the whackjob perished.  Good folks lived, bad guy died.  All good.

Having said all that, I look at the horror that took place on January 6, 2021.  The people that stormed the Capitol Building were a combination of the absurdly deluded, painfully stupid, and intrinsically evil seeking to grab power they neither deserved nor had to ability to wield well had they seized it.

I consider them no better than that poor fool who lost his life in that mindless assault on Beth Israel.

ME Someone, Sun, 01/16/2022 - 19:27

Yeah, they are going to contest and say it was fraud in every single election they lose from here on out, it is in the republican playbook already, anyone don't believe me? It's already happened,

Republicans say it was fraud when Donald Trump lost by the largest margin of votes in American history, even though every single republican run investigation has turned up no fraud whatsoever. YET, the republicans who won, on the same day, in the same places, on the same exact ballot, don't say their wins were fraud. They can't have it both ways.

Republicans are setting everything up in plain sight to rig the system in their favor, they will claim fraud after fraud, then actually do the fraud themselves, and their supporters will just say they were "owed" that win because the democrats stole the last one, even thought the basis is all lies an propaganda. It is all very obvious to anyone paying attention.

Oh please. Remember Stacy Abrams I don’t think she’s fully conceded to this day lol.
