Ocasio-Cortez: Trump Running ‘Concentration Camps’ at Border

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) on Monday evening ratcheted up her attacks on the Trump administration’s immigration policies, referring to President Donald Trump as a “fascist” operating “concentration camps” on the U.S.-Mexico border.

“That is exactly what they are. They are concentration camps,” Ocasio-Cortez said of migrant holding facilities during a Q&A live-streamed on Instagram. “The fact that concentrations camps are now an institutionalized practice in the Home of the Free is extraordinarily disturbing and we need to do something about it.”

The self-avowed Democratic-socialist then voiced her eagerness to connect with others “who are concerned enough with humanity to say that ‘never again’ means something.”

The expression “never again” is strongly associated with Holocaust remembrance.

During another part of the live-stream, the 29-year-old freshman lawmaker warned her followers that “we are losing to an authoritarian and fascist presidency.”

“I don’t use those words lightly,” she continued. “I don’t use those words to just throw bombs. I use that word because that is what an administration that creates concentration camps is. A presidency that creates concentration camps is fascist, and it’s very difficult to say that.”

“The fact that concentration camps are now an institutionalized practice in the home of the free is extraordinarily disturbing, and we need to do something about it,” she added.

In November, Ocasio-Cortez faced blowback after comparing asylum seekers to Jews fleeing Nazi Germany during World War II, attempting to make the point that neither was a “crime.” “Asking to be considered a refugee and applying for status isn’t a crime,” the congresswoman wrote on Twitter. “It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany. It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda. It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria. And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central America.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s remarks came as President Trump vowed to deport millions of illegal aliens in a series of tweets.

Ahead of launching his 2020 re-election campaign, the president stated that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will next week “begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States.”

“They will be removed as fast as they come in,” he added.

(DO YOU WANT TO STOP THIS? SHOT TO KILL) – America’s paying for it: Mexican thieves rob US border fence wire and use it to secure homes

CAP

Enterprising Mexican thieves south of the US border fence have stolen some of its barbed wire and used it to fortify homes in Tijuana, a local police chief said. Catching the thieves in the act has proven difficult.

President Donald Trump ordered the security fence separating San Diego from Tijuana topped with razor-sharp concertina wire back in November, as the United States braced for the arrival of multiple ‘caravans’ of illegal immigrants. “No climbers anymore under our administration,” he boasted.

Several months later, sections of the wire are missing, and are turning up on people’s homes in Tijuana, police chief Marco Antonio Sotomayor Amezcua told local news outlet Milenio.

“We know about the theft of barbed wire because United States authorities have requested our help,” Sotomayor said. The chief explained that the wire is stronger, sharper, and of better quality than anything sold in Mexican stores, a thumbs up of sorts for Trump’s beloved American manufacturing industry.

But, in the spirit of the “innocent until proven guilty” principle, the police chief added that they couldn’t help their American colleagues as the thieves usually manage to slip away from the fence before his officers arrive on the scene.

Meanwhile, footage from Mexican television shows the Tijuana houses newly wired-up.

US contractors were busy at work replacing the missing sections of wire on Monday morning, the Los Angeles Times reported. Its reporters saw homes just feet away on the Mexican side decked out in what appeared to be freshly-stolen barbed wire.

Unsurprisingly, none of the residents were keen to explain where their new home security upgrades came from.

Reynaldo González Mora of Tijuana’s border liaison unit has said that 15 to 20 suspects, all of them Mexican citizens, have been arrested over the wire theft thus far.

“Most were people who have been deported from the United States, and people who have problems with drug addiction and live mostly on the street,” González told the Los Angeles Times.

New caravan enters Mexico — legally or not…

Ciudad Hidalgo (Mexico) (AFP)

Hundreds of Central Americans entered Mexico illegally as the latest migrant caravan to set its sights on the United States began crossing the Mexican-Guatemalan border en masse Friday.

Not content to wait five days for the humanitarian visas Mexico is offering them, several hundred migrants took to make-shift rafts to cross the Suchiate River, which forms the frontier, or snuck across the loosely guarded border bridge overnight, AFP correspondents said.

That could trigger a new Twitter firestorm from US President Donald Trump, who has urged Mexico to halt such caravans, and who tweeted early Friday: “Another big Caravan heading our way. Very hard to stop without a Wall!”

Caravans of migrants hoping to find safety in numbers have taken center stage in the raging US debate over Trump’s proposed border wall, which has led to a government shutdown that is now the longest in history.

Around 2,000 migrants are traveling in the latest caravan — smaller than the one that swelled to 7,000 migrants late last year, leading Trump to warn of an “invasion” by “criminals” and “thugs” and send thousands of troops to the US-Mexican border.

Mexican authorities are urging the migrants to cross the border legally and offering expedited “visitor cards” that let them work and access basic health care in Mexico.

So far, 969 migrants from Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua have been registered under the program and given bracelets that they can exchange for visitor cards in five days.

But hundreds more migrants ignored the offer and crossed illegally, not content to wait in the park where the caravan has camped out in the border city of Tecun Uman, Guatemala.

“A lot of us aren’t interested in waiting five days. Our goal is to reach the United States,” said Alma Mendoza, a nurse and single mother making the trip with her three children.

“We don’t have food, much less money. We want to reach our destination,” she told AFP.

Other migrants said they would consider staying in Mexico.

“My goal is to reach the United States, but if I can’t I’ll stay in Mexico and work. They’re giving us an opportunity,” said Christian Medrano, 33, an industrial technician.

‘AMLO’ walking fine line –

The caravan set out Tuesday from San Pedro Sula, in northwestern Honduras, and has grown along the way.

The migrants are mostly fleeing poverty and crime in Central America’s “Northern Triangle” of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. Brutal street gangs have made the three countries among the most violent in the world.

Another caravan of about 200 migrants set out Wednesday from El Salvador and is now in southern Mexico, possibly poised to join up with the first.

Many of the migrants are traveling in families, often with small children.

Those who reached Mexico’s southern border have covered about 700 kilometers (435 miles) so far. They have roughly 4,000 kilometers to go if they take the same route as the last caravan, to Tijuana, across from San Diego, California.

When that caravan reached Mexico in October, the authorities tried to stop it with riot police. But the migrants stormed in anyway, tearing down border fences then crossing the river illegally when police refused to let them through.

Since then, Mexico has got a new government, led by President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, an anti-establishment leftist.

“AMLO,” as the new president is widely known, has promised to treat migrants more humanely than previous governments. But he has also sought to stay on Trump’s good side with talk of reducing migrant flows.

The October caravan largely dispersed after reaching Tijuana.

US Border Patrol agents fought back two attempts by the migrants to rush the border, firing tear gas to disperse them.

Some have since found work in Mexico, some crossed the border and filed asylum claims, and many returned home. About 400 remain in a shelter set up for them in Tijuana that is slated to be closed on Wednesday.

Rapper Cardi B lashed out at President Trump again Wednesday, criticizing the government shutdown and calling supporters of the president “f**king racist rednecks.”

In a series of videos posted to Instagram, Cardi B attacked the president and his supporters in vulgar terms.

“I don’t want to hear any of y’all motherfuckers talkin’ ’bout, ‘Oh, but Obama shut down the government for 17 days.’ Yeah, bitch, for healthcare!” she said. “So your grandma could check her blood pressure and you bitches could go check y’all pussy at the gynecologist with no mother fuckin’ problem!”

“This shit is really fucking serious bro. This shit is crazy. Our country is in a hellhole right now. All for a fucking wall.”

In a previous video, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper said, “You promised these fucking racist rednecks that you was gonna build the wall, but you know that was impossible.”

“But they voted for you and you promised them this shit so now you have to do it,” she said.

In another video posted to her social media this week, the 26-year-old fantasized about beating up the president.

“Like I swear to God, if I was there, I would have punched the motherfuckin’–I would have motherfuckin’ punched the wig out of Trump, bro,” the New York rapper said in response to Trump serving McDonald’s to Clemson football players.

Eight-Times Deported Illegal Alien Caught With $850,000 of Meth and Cocaine in His Car

They’re not sending their best.

Utah County police arrested 44-year-old Jose Olegario Lopez over the weekend and found 19 pounds of illegal drugs in his car.

Police officers tried to pull over Lopez on January 12th over a traffic violation but when Lopez refused to pull over, a team of officers pursued him and eventually stopped him.

Officers and a K9 searched Lopez’s car and discovered bags of cocaine and meth, valued at approximately $856,000.

According to police, Jose Olegario Lopez is from Sinaloa, Mexico, and has been deported from the United States eight different times.

Lopez also has ties to large drug trafficking operations outside of Utah, reported KUTV.

Drug trafficking is one of the many reasons President Trump is working to secure the southern border.

For the first time ever opioids killed more than car crashes in the United States last year and the Democrats still don’t support border security.

Remember the Caravan? Leader Faces 15 Years in Prison for Child Rape

By Tom Pappert

One of the leaders behind the latest migrant caravan to depart from Central America has been arrested by local authorities, who discovered he had been convicted of raping his child cousin, and had been fleeing justice.

Honduran media reports that migrant caravan coordinator Juan Carlos Molina was arrested by Honduran Border Police after they realized he matched the description they had for a man convicted of child rape in 2015.

Molina either did not carry identification with him, or carried fake paperwork, causing the police to fingerprint him and discover that he was a convicted child predator meant to be serving 15 years in prison.

The man was able to be convicted while remaining a fugitive was made possible due to the fact that the victim, his minor cousin, produced a child from the assault who shares his DNA.

Honduras’s La Tribuna reported:

The Criminal Enforcement Court of the Judicial Section of San Pedro Sula confirmed that the detainee is a convicted person and was a fugitive from justice. He faces 15 years in prison. The court issued the arrest warrant on August 31, 2015.

On April 23, 2015, Chamber 5 of the Sentencing Court sentenced Juan Carlos Molina, who was found to be criminally liable for the crime of special violation against a minor and was found to be civilly liable to respond with compensation for the moral damages caused to the victim.

According to the facts, in September 2010, when the child under 12 was in the house, at night, she left the door ajar for her mother to enter and who arrived was Juan Carlos Molina, who took advantage of the minor, who was his cousin, covering his mouth raped her.

Big League Politics has followed the progress of the latest caravan to depart from Central America since its inception. We now know that the caravan is being encouraged by an organization that receives money from globalist financier George Soros, and that Congress has received information suggesting terrorists may have embedded themselves in the latest caravan.

Tensions at the U.S.-Mexico border continue to mount, as Democrats seek to deny President Donald J. Trump the ability to construct a wall of steel or concrete to stem the tide of violent crime coming across the border. Just last week, a pile of 20 or more corpses was found near the border, justifying Americans’ increasing desire to see the wall constructed.
