Texas’s Duty To Enforce The Border

From The Federalist:

Because our states are sovereigns — with their own constitutions, laws, and obligations to their citizens — and not mere appendages of our federal government, they are authorized to wield substantial, non-symbolic power within their own territories. An assertion that states function in a realm of permission-based or symbolic authority is just flat wrong.

Rep. Cuellar Says Biden Playing Shell Game With Immigrants

From Epoch Times:

Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-Texas) said in an interview on “NBC Nightly News” that recent photos showing far less crowded housing conditions for unaccompanied migrant children in Border Patrol custody in Donna, Texas, paint a misleading picture of the border crisis.

“What they’re doing now is they’re moving the kids from the Border Patrol tents over to next door to the HHS facility. With all due respect, it’s all a shell game,” Cuellar said, referring to facilities run by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Border Patrol Capture Two Men On Terror List

From The Federalist:

Agents arrested the first illegal alien, a 33-year-old male, on January 29 in the middle of the night. In addition to discovering that the migrant was on both watch lists, border patrol also “found a cellular phone sim card hidden underneath the insole of his shoe” before transferring him into Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody.

Border patrol apprehended the second alien, a 26 year-old-male, in the same area at the end of March before discovering that he was on both watch lists as well. The second man is in “federal custody pending removal.”

How To Deal With The Cartels

From The Federalist:

If the administration wants to go on the offense, it could take a few practical steps in the right direction. Adding more cartels to the list of transnational criminal organizations would allow us to squeeze them as much as possible financially. But it would not be enough, as Giovanni Falcone advises, to “follow the money.” The Insurrection Act, which the president has mentioned before, is another instrument that would be useful in this fight.
Because of the Posse Comitatus Act, our troops on the border operate in a passive, observe and report capacity. The Insurrection Act could remedy that problem. If it is “clearly lawful,” as University of Texas Law School professor Stephen I. Vladeck writes that it is, for the president to use the act in immigration matters, then surely that lawfulness extends to border security. “And although Congress in the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878 generally prohibited use of the federal military for domestic law enforcement,” Vladeck writes, “the Insurrection Act was always understood as the principal exception to that general rule.”

The Wide Militia Movement

From Reason:

Two more factors muddle the picture even more. One is the white nationalists of the alt-right, who sometimes draw on the same pool of potential recruits as the militias, though relations between the two movements are frequently frosty. The other consists of the armed “counter-recruitment” organizations that imitate the militias’ iconography while advocating leftist (usually anarchist) politics.

Cartel Beats Mexican Military

From The Federalist:

The battle of Culiacan marks a turning point in the collapse of the Mexican state. There is now no doubt about who is in control of Sinaloa, let alone the rest of the country. Cartel forces seized a major regional capital city in broad daylight and defeated the national armed forces in open battle.

Border Patrol Sees Significant Drop In Crossings

From Zero Hedge:

A sharp dropoff in the number of illegal border crossers coming into the United States from Mexico is “nothing short of miraculous,” National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd told C-SPAN on Monday.

As far as the Trump administration’s efforts on immigration, this is something they campaigned heavily on.

We have never seen such a drop that we currently have.

There’s a vibe, there’s an energy in the Border Patrol that’s never been there before in 20 years that I’ve been in the patrol.  –Brandon Judd

Judd went on to say that Trump’s two Executive Orders instructing border agents to fully carry out laws is in sharp contrast to the Obama administration, which kept agents from performing their sworn duties.

The Washington Examiner reports a 53% decrease in apprehensions at the Southwest border compared to last year – a 6 year low.
