    Bi-National Rescue of Sexual Assault Victim by CBP and Mexican Officials
    Release Date: June 2, 2021
    CALEXICO, Calif. – U.S. Customs and Border Protection personnel from the Air and Marine Operations (AMO), Yuma Air Branch and the El Centro Sector Border Patrol rescued a woman reportedly being assaulted in the eastern desert near Calexico.

    The incident occurred Monday morning at about 8 a.m., when the Yuma Air Branch crew were conducting aerial patrol operations east of Calexico. The aircrew spotted a woman being sexually assaulted on the Mexico side of the International Boundary Fence approximately 12 miles east of downtown Calexico. The aircrew activated the loudspeaker and sirens of their EC120 to scare off the assailant and observed him running away from the woman’s location.


    The aircrew notified Calexico Station of the incident and landed the helicopter in an immediate response to make contact with the woman. The woman, who was bleeding profusely told crewmembers she had been shot and had a noticeable head wound. Agents responded to the location to assist the air crew in providing medical attention through the border fence in efforts to control the woman’s bleeding.

    The El Centro Sector’s Foreign Operations Branch (FOB) and officials with the Mexican authorities were advised of the situation. At approximately 8:40 a.m., Mexican authorities arrived on scene and continued to provide medical assistance to the woman. The woman was then taken to a hospital in Mexico.

    El Centro Sector FOB stated that a male subject found fleeing the scene was arrested by Mexican authorities.

    Proud American
    18h ·
    @USBPChiefRGV: RGV has encountered nearly 60 large groups composed of more than 100 migrants since October.
    The most recent large group was in La Joya, Texas and consisted of 198 migrants, to include 50 unaccompanied children.


    Congresswoman Kat Cammack
    I met this little girl last night at midnight when she and those in her group were picked up for processing. She was terrified. The man holding her told me and my colleagues that he was her father and they had come from Honduras. Today as I toured the Donna, TX processing facility where they hold children and families, I asked officials to track down this little girl to see what else they had found out.

    Ten minutes later, Border Patrol showed me the paperwork that confirmed what we had suspected—the man pictured above was not her father—because he wasn't a relative at all. He just admitted to using her to get into the U.S. That man will be sent back but this little girl remains here, alone. This is called "recycling children" where young kids are used as pawns to shepherd adults across the border and this has become a daily occurrence here in SW Texas.
    Our border agents are begging for you to extend Title 42, reinstate MPP, and finish the wall. This is both a humanitarian and national security crisis.
    President Biden: DO YOUR JOB.

    Harris, in Guatemala, tells potential migrants they will be turned back: 'Do not come'

    Harris defended not visiting the US border, saying she is not interested in 'grand gestures'

    While Harris and the administration have emphasized "root causes" in Central America like poverty, climate and violence as the reason for the spike, Giammattei had also pointed to a change in message to migrants with the new administration.

    "The message changed too: 'We're going to reunite families, we're going to reunite children,'" he told CBS News. "The very next day, the coyotes were here organizing groups of children to take them to the United States."
    "We asked the United States government to send more of a clear message to prevent more people from leaving," he said.

    The worst thing is sending the children as if they are going to some utopia. They are being sent to an orphanage and are lucky not to be raped
    or killed along the way.

    EXCLUSIVE: Texas to Build Its Own Border Barriers, Says Governor
    DEL RIO, Texas — Texas Governor Greg Abbott told Breitbart Texas the State will immediately begin building border barriers in areas where migrants can easily cross the Rio Grande border with Mexico. The barriers will, in part, enable state law enforcement to arrest migrants for violations of state law.

    He said they are hearing from local residents and elected and law enforcement officials that they are seeing things they have never seen before.

    “They’re seeing a lot of very bad dangerous people come across the border,” Abbott continued. “People that they are afraid of encountering, people who are causing damage to their fences, their livestock, their crops, their neighborhoods, and their homes.”

    The governor explained that the barriers serve two functions in the battle against illegal border crossings. The first being physical deterrence. The second, “If they (migrants) move or interfere with that barrier, they have committed several crimes.”

    Those crimes include criminal mischief, vandalism of state property or local government property, and criminal trespass.

    In addition, the recent declaration of a State of Emergency by the State of Texas causes the penalties for these crimes to increase by one level.

    “That means up to 180 days in jail,” Abbott continued. “Something that may be a Class B misdemeanor right now, turned into a class A misdemeanor. And so they can get into a lot of trouble.”

    “There’s even potential for state jail felonies for some of these crimes,” he explained. “So they can wind up in jail for a long time.”

    Abbott said they have identified more than 1,000 jail cells that can be used to hold arrested migrants. They will begin actively working with local and state officials to identify more space. He said they may consider building additional jail space in the form of soft-sided facilities.

    To help facilitate this effort, Governor Abbott teamed up with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey to call on fellow governors across the nation to provide assistance in the ongoing border crisis.

    I just spoke to several people in the group. They tell me they are all from Ecuador and left because of conditions back home. I asked them if any of them heard US VP Kamala Harris’ message to not come to the border right now. The adults all said no. “No escuchamos”. IN OTHER WORDS NO, THEY HAVE NOT HEARD THAT.

    Gulf Cartel human smuggling stash house with 107 people crammed together inside in the sweltering heat. IN ALTON, TEXAS

    Live in the Rio Grande Valley today as a group of Ecuadorian migrants emerge from the brush behind us and wait for Border Patrol to arrive. We also came across an apparent Gulf Cartel human smuggling stash house with 107 people crammed together inside in the sweltering heat.

    Bill Melugin@BillFOXLA
    Once again, within minutes of arriving in La, Joya, TX this AM, we encountered a group of 30-40 migrants from Honduras, El Salvador, & Guatemala. Border Patrol removes all their shoelaces so they don’t try to hurt themselves in custody if they find out they can’t stay in the U.S

    NEW: We witnessed a high speed pursuit of a human smuggler who had 12 illegal immigrants in his vehicle. He led TX State Troopers & Border Patrol on a dangerous 40 minute chase before he crashed into the front of a house in a quiet residential neighborhood in McAllen.
    The smuggler bailed out of the vehicle and was caught by State Troopers & Border Patrol. He will be charged with felony evading & human smuggling.
    @TxDPS
    tells me there has been a sharp increase in the amount of these smuggler pursuits, with 370+ happening since March.

    The repercussions of Biden's criminal greenlighting of refugee migration to demonstrate he is not a wall builder like Trump are
    going to be felt for years and will results of thousands of deaths and much more human tragedy. Meanwhile the US fake stream
    media will be brainwashing Americans that Russian hackers, working for Putin, are installing ransomware on their PCs.

    I would not be surprised if there is some direct US government involvement in this racket. After all, we had the CIA selling narcotics inside the US to finance itself.
    The reporter who broke the story was suicided a few years ago. But journalists who were killed in Chechnya in 1996 are Putin's victims.
