Democrats Win Again? The Spending Bill Congress Just Passed Contains Restrictions That Make It Just About Impossible For Trump To Build His Wall

On Wednesday, the House and the Senate both passed a massive 1,159 page spending bill that they were given less than 24 hours to read.  There was a concerted effort by the leadership of both parties to rush this bill through before the American people could be mobilized to oppose it.  We are being told that this spending package represents a compromise, but as you will see below, the wording of the bill is so restrictive that it is going to make it just about impossible for President Trump to get anything built on the border.  At this point I think that Trump is counting on declaring a national emergency in order to get his wall built, but the moment he does that the Democrats plan to tie him up in court indefinitely.

Before we get to the details of this bill, let’s talk about how ridiculous this legislative process has been.  During her first term as speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi often rushed through enormous pieces of legislation without giving anyone time to actually read what was in them, and now she is doing it again.

This 1,159 page spending bill had an average of approximately 200 words per page, and as Breitbart has pointed out, a “fast reader” could get through such a document in about 40 hours…

The document has roughly 200 words per page — ensuring that a fast reader would need 40 hours just to reach to the end of the huge document, providing they did not stop to take notes, compare the text to existing laws, eat, or sleep.

But members of Congress were not given 40 hours.  Instead, they had the bill for about 18 hours before they were expected to vote on it.

Needless to say, nobody that voted on this bill read the entire thing.

That should have been reason enough to vote no on this bill, and yet this bill overwhelmingly passed in both chambers.

You can find a list of all the members of the House of Representatives that voted yes on this bill right here.  When the next election comes along, it is your job to hold them accountable.

We were told that this bill would include 1.375 billion dollars for Trump’s wall, but that is not true.

In the bill, it specifically says that the 1.375 billion dollars is for “the construction of primary pedestrian fencing”.

So there will be no concrete wall.  Instead, it will just be the kind of pedestrian fencing that both Bush and Obama built.

In addition, the bill specifically says that this fencing can only be put up “in the Rio Grande Valley Sector”.

So why is construction of the fencing limited to that one area in Texas?

Well, the bill also contains a provision that gives Democratic lawmakers in those Texas border towns the power to block construction of the fencing

One poison pill would allow Democratic legislators in Texas border towns to block the construction of the 55 miles of border walls approved in the legislation.

A second poison pill would allow illegal migrants in the United State to get a legal shield against deportation by declaring their willingness to “sponsor” a teenager or child trafficked from Central America. Many the so-called “Unaccompanied Alien Children” who are being smuggled up to the United States by the cartels are the children or relatives of illegals who have already sneaked into the U.S.

These are the five border towns that Trump would need to get approval from, and they are all run by Democrats…

-Roma
-Rio Grande City
-Escobares
-La Grulla
-Salineno

In addition, the bill specifically says that no construction can take place “while consultations are continuing” with local officials.

On top of everything else, the bill also requires a public comment period of at least 60 days before construction can begin…

It is not just local elected officials who have to approve of border wall construction, though. The spending bill mandates DHS open a public comment period by July, giving the public at least 60 days to voice opinions about the construction of a barrier in their county.

In essence, the wording of this bill all but ensures that nothing is going to get built on the border before the 2020 presidential election.

The Democrats have done a masterful job of achieving their goals once again, and Republican leadership in Congress got played like a fiddle.

Our government is incredibly broken, and we desperately need to clean house.

The bill also puts all sorts of new restrictions on ICE.  For example, it mandates a reduction in the number of ICE detention beds from 49,060 to 40,520 by the end of the fiscal year, and this is going to force ICE to “catch and release” a whole lot more illegal immigrants.

I could go on and on, but hopefully you get the point.  This bill is a complete and utter nightmare, and President Trump should veto it.  But the White House has already announced that Trump will sign the bill

Moments after McConnell’s remarks, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed in a statement that the president will sign the funding bill and take executive action to build the wall. “President Trump will sign the government funding bill, and as he has stated before, he will also take other executive action – including a national emergency – to ensure we stop the national security and humanitarian crisis at the border. The President is once again delivering on his promise to build the wall, protect the border, and secure our great country,” Sanders said.

Year after year, there are showdowns over spending in Congress.

And year after year, the Democrats always get what they want in the end.

The Republicans are playing checkers while the Democrats are playing chess, and meanwhile our entire country is going down the tubes.

Cartels Are Making Americans Living Near The Border Afraid To Report Crimes

U.S. residents living near the southern border claim they are afraid to report immigration-related crimes to the police, detailing horrific stories of retaliation by Mexican cartels.

“I turned in 700 pounds [of marijuana] up here … I called it in [to Border Patrol]. They went and got it. That night, [the smugglers] came back. They … broke off all the floats off my troughs — chopped ’em up, drained all of it,” Billy Darnell, a cattle rancher in New Mexico, explained to the Washington Examiner.

Unlike other residents in the area, Darnell alerts the Border Patrol and local authorities whenever he sees an incident. However, the Hidalgo County cattle ranger says he has paid the price for talking.

Drug smugglers working for the cartels are constantly crossing the U.S-Mexico border, carrying marijuana and other illicit narcotics with them. Many times, smugglers will camp out and make use of property on the U.S. side of the border, clashing with American ranchers and residents.

After reaching out to residents living near the area, several told the Washington Examiner that reporting immigration-related crimes — such as burglary or finding drugs near their property — to the police can lead to retaliation. Fearing retribution, many of them forgo calling authorities altogether.

“I mix and mingle with these folks a lot,” said Joel Edwards, a Hidalgo County commissioner who said ranchers’ fears of retaliation by the cartels are legitimate. “That’s pretty much a real common feeling out there … I’ve heard it quite a bit in the last few weeks. They’re just scared.”

Another resident, Tricia Elbrock, believes cartel spotters camp out in the hills that overlook her home in Animas, New Mexico, and would know if she attempted to report suspicious activity. Elbrock has reported finding semiautomatic rifles, cellphones and satellite phones. However, she said she never approaches anything that is left on her property because people watching “could pick us off with a rifle.”

News of resident anxiety comes as lawmakers in Congress continue to debate border security and possible construction of a massive border wall.

After undergoing the longest shutdown in U.S. history, President Donald Trump relented and allowed the federal government to reopen in late January. However, Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill have until Feb. 15 to reach an agreement or else face another shutdown. It’s not clear if Democrats will allow a comprehensive deal on border security to include funding for a border wall — something Trump has made clear is a deal-breaker.

In the meantime, the president is wielding his executive authority to beef up security on the U.S.-Mexico border. The Pentagon announced Jan. 29 it was sending an additional 2,000 troops to the southwestern part of the border for a mission that will extend until Sept. 30. The Pentagon on Sunday announced another 3,750 U.S. troops to be deployed at the border.

Soldiers will help border agents install barbed wire and assist with other immigration enforcement efforts.

Mike Huckabee Calls Out The Media And Celebrities For Being Hypocrites On Immigration

Former Arkansas GOP Gov. Mike Huckabee accused Hollywood and the media of immigration hypocrisy on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday and asked how many of them “lock their doors at night.”

Huckabee said the media went out of its way to downplay the “invasion” of illegal immigrants at the southern border and lacks the “integrity” to admit they were wrong.

“They have no honesty, they have no integrity to be able to say that what they said was wrong. They were adamant in saying there is no invasion,” Huckabee declared.

“They went after the president and said he was a liar — called my daughter a liar for saying those things, challenged him in a press conference. But of course you’ll never hear them get up and say ‘We were wrong,’ because they’ve never felt it.”

Huckabee asked how many media personalities lock their front doors and said none of them have sponsored a struggling migrant or offered to help pay their expenses.

“Here’s what I’d like to know. How many of those folks in the media who say these things, how many of them lock their doors at night? How many of them are sponsoring one of the immigrants who are coming in,” he continued. “How many of them are saying I’ll sponsor — I’ll take them into my home. They can stay with me until they find work and I’ll pay for their expenses and I will take care — How many? How many of the celebrities are doing that. I have not heard of a one. When they’re willing, then that’s different.”

Huckabee insisted on a middle ground approach to immigration, but said an open borders policy is out of the question and would pose a serious risk to American citizens.

“I think there’s a way to balance this. It doesn’t have to be either-or. It should be both. Take care of people who are truly seeking asylum who are in danger. That’s what we do as a country and we’re a good country,” he said.

“But you don’t just say, doors are open. Anyone come in. It doesn’t matter if you’re waving the flag of another country, if you actually hate America but you want to come here for all of its benefits. No. We have no obligation to open the doors for that.”

Shock Claim: The Media Is Reporting That Some In The 2nd Migrant Caravan Have “Guns” And “Bombs”

A second migrant caravan has been attempting to breach Mexico’s border with Guatemala, and the media is reporting that some migrants in that second caravan are armed with “guns” and “bombs”.  This is a very serious claim, and it needs to either be confirmed or retracted, because it is not helpful to have unconfirmed reports spreading like wildfire on social media.  There have been endless discussions about these migrant caravans on all the major news networks in recent weeks, and they are getting so much attention that they are almost overshadowing the midterm elections which are going to happen next week.  And if this latest report is true, concern about these caravans is certain to reach a fever pitch…

The second group back at the Guatemalan frontier has been more unruly than the first that crossed. Guatemala’s Interior Ministry said Guatemalan police officers were injured when the migrant group broke through border barriers on Guatemala’s side of the bridge.

Mexico authorities said migrants attacked its agents with rocks, glass bottles and fireworks when they broke through a gate on the Mexican end but were pushed back, and some allegedly carried guns and firebombs.

That quote comes from a Daily Mail article, and it sounds quite ominous.

But elsewhere in the article we find out that the “bombs” are actually “gasoline bombs made of soft-drink bottles, and improvised PVC tubes to launch fireworks”.  So they aren’t exactly military grade bombs, but they could definitely cause damage.

In response to these caravans headed toward our border, President Trump tweeted the following on Monday…

Many Gang Members and some very bad people are mixed into the Caravan heading to our Southern Border. Please go back, you will not be admitted into the United States unless you go through the legal process. This is an invasion of our Country and our Military is waiting for you!

And subsequently we learned that approximately 5,000 U.S. troops are going to be deployed to the border

The US military will deploy 5,000 troops to the southern border – up from initial estimates of 800, according to the Wall street Journal, citing US officials. The troops will be sent to Texas, Arizona and California as Central American migrant caravan makes its way north through Mexico.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis told reporters Sunday that the military has already started to deploy countermeasures to the southern border, following weekend reports that Mexican police had abandoned their own blockades as a massive Central American migrant caravan continues their march north, reports AP.

So it looks like we may have some sort of major border confrontation just before election day.

Needless to say, whatever happens at the border is going to be broadcast all over the world, and it could potentially swing a lot of votes one way or the other.

Meanwhile, the mainstream media is getting a lot of mileage out of this controversy, and some hosts are receiving a tremendous amount of criticism for the things that they are saying.  For example, Brian Kilmeade of Fox News is in hot water for stating that the migrants could potentially bring “diseases” into this country…

Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade is being taken to task over comments he made about the migrant caravan.

During his Fox and Friends show which was discussing the migrant caravan which is headed toward the United States, he explained how one of his biggest concerns about the group is the ‘diseases’ the migrants could bring.

And he went on to say that “keeping some people out is ‘part of the reason why America’s America.’”

He then went on to ponder why those who want to block the caravan from entering are seen as ‘hardhearted,’ even though ‘we already give 40 to 50 percent of our taxable income to the government for social programs.’

‘We can’t have countries’ entire populations come in’ to America, Kilmeade continued, ‘because keeping some people out is ‘part of the reason why America’s America.’

On the other side, the New York Times is being criticized for linking criticism of the caravan with the attack that we just witnessed in Pittsburgh

But as the country processes the cumulative trauma of two actual crises that occurred inside its borders — a spate of pipe bombs sent to the president’s political opponents, and the massacre of 11 people at a synagogue by a man who spewed anti-Semitic vitriol and called immigrants “invaders” — there is clear overlap between the hatred and delusion that drove this lethal behavior and the paranoia and misinformation surrounding the caravan.

As I have stated repeatedly, this is the most divided that I have ever seen America in my entire lifetime.  The midterm elections that will happen next week will certainly not solve that problem no matter who wins.  In fact, those elections could be a flashpoint that will escalate the anger and frustration in this country to an entirely new level.

We no longer have a single set of values that define us as a nation.  Instead, the left hates the right and the right hates the left and the mainstream media continues to invent new ways to divide us and pit us against one another.

I would never suggest that we should compromise our values, but if we do not learn how to love those that disagree with us we are not going to make it as a nation.

Anger and hatred are not going to get us anywhere.  Yes, we must always stand for what is right, but we must always endeavor to love our neighbors as well.

If America continues down the road that it is currently on, it is a recipe for chaos, civil unrest and societal collapse.

America may seem strong today, but a nation is only as strong as the people that make it up, and right now it is very difficult to be optimistic about our future.

We Asked 20 Dems In Key Races What They Would Do With The Migrant Caravan. Not A Single One Had An Answer

Democrats in key midterm races and battleground states have continued to remain silent about the migrant caravan of roughly 7,000 people from Central America traveling through Mexico toward the U.S.

The Daily Caller News Foundation contacted the campaigns of 20 Democrats who are currently up for re-election in battleground states or in tight races. None responded or gave their views on the caravan.

TheDCNF reached out to the following Democrats about the migrant caravan, asking them how the U.S. should respond to the matter:

  • Florida Sen. Bill Nelson
  • Montana Sen. Jon Tester
  • New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez
  • Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams
  • North Dakota Sen. Heidi Heitkamp
  • Nevada Rep. Jacky Rosen
  • Indiana Sen. Joe Donnelly
  • Arizona Senate candidate Kyrsten Sinema
  • Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill
  • Wisconsin Sen. Tammy Baldwin
  • Tennessee Senate candidate Phil Bredesen
  • Minnesota Sen. Tina Smith
  • Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine
  • Michigan Sen. Debbie Stabenow
  • Pennsylvania Sen. Bob Casey
  • Ohio Sen. Sherrod Brown
  • Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren
  • California Sen. Dianne Feinstein
  • Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy
  • Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono

Democratic Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke’s campaign was the only one contacted that responded to TheDCNF, however, the campaign said he has not made a position on the caravan yet.

“Beto does not yet have a statement about the migrant caravan. Stay tuned,” an email from the campaign stated. “In general, Beto believes that immigrants help our state and country grow strong, safe, and prosperous and wants to ensure that immigrants have a lawful, earned path to citizenship.”

President Donald Trump and Republicans have strongly pushed back on the caravan, mentioning it at campaign rallies, on social media, and TV appearances. Trump made it clear Monday night that he would not allow the migrants into the U.S. no matter the case, and even said he will deploy troops to defend the borders, if necessary.

“We’re going to do whatever we have to, they’re not coming in,” Trump said to reporters Tuesday.

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy mentioned his concern with the caravan on Fox News Wednesday, saying if Democrats win big in the Nov. 6 midterm elections, he fears House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Democrats will push hard for open borders.

“We are worried about this caravan coming. But I am more worried what happens on November 6,” McCarthy said. “If we are not on successful on November 6, think what it would mean if Nancy Pelosi was speaker… Think about how many people would be coming.”

According to a majority of polling, Republicans are expected to lose control of the House but keep control in the Senate after the midterm elections. However, there is growing speculation that Republicans could be more successful than polls suggest.

MS-13 GANG MEMBERS AMONGST ‘MIGRANT CARAVAN’

According to award winning reporter Sarah Carter, there are a number of MS-13 gang members amongst the 7,000+ migrant caravan heading towards the United States.

“Guatemalan intelligence discovered people from India, Bangladesh, Africa had also joined in with the caravan -I bumped into a number of young MS 13 gang members,” tweeted Carter, who is a Fox News contributor.

Carter’s report backs up President Trump’s claim yesterday that MS-13 members are part of the caravan.

“You’re going to find MS-13, you’re going to find Middle Eastern, you’re going to find everything,” he said.

There have been at least 200 murders by MS-13 gang members in the United States since 2012. The group is notorious for its grisly executions, as well as the rape and dismemberment of women and children.

However, such concerns were not shared by much of the left and the mainstream media back in May, when Trump was criticized for referring to MS-13 gang members as “animals”.

According to reports, there is now a second migrant caravan comprising of 1,000 people that crossed from Honduras into Guatemala on Sunday night.

Pictures show that the caravan is “mostly young men,” mirroring a Fox News report that said around 80 per cent of the first migrant caravan was comprised of men under the age of 35.

Migrant Declares That Donald Trump Is ‘The Antichrist’ As ‘The Caravan’ Grows To 14,000 People

Even though the midterm elections are about two weeks away, it is the massive caravan of migrants currently headed toward the U.S. border that is garnering most of the top headlines.  President Trump had been hoping that this caravan would be stopped at Mexico’s southern border, but that did not happen, and now it appears that we could be looking at a major international incident along the U.S. border with Mexico not many days from now.  As you will see below, it is being reported that the population of “the caravan” has grown to 14,000 people, and many of them are extremely angry with Donald Trump.

The Mexicans had closed their border with Guatemala as “the caravan” approached, but migrants started using boats to cross into Mexico and the Mexican police failed to stop them.

Now the caravan is steamrolling north, and one Mexican newspaper is reporting that the number of people involved has grown to 14,000

Mexican police, who failed to stop them at that country’s border with Guatemala, now serve as escorts for the caravan as it barrels north, its members clear that they have no intention of staying in Mexico, and have eyes only for the U.S.

New estimates cited by El Universal, a Mexican newspaper, say the caravan now has 14,000 people, many of them already in Mexico while others still wait.

If that number is accurate, that means that the number of migrants has doubled, and it will likely grow even more as the caravan travels northward through Mexico.

But President Trump is pledging that this caravan will not be given the opportunity to enter the United States.  One of his primary concerns is that there could be gang members and Middle Eastern terrorists embedded among the migrants

President Donald Trump dared a TV reporter on Monday to go with his camera crew from the White House to southern Mexico, promising that they would find drug cartel gangsters and out-of-place Middle Easterners embedded in a massive column of migrants who aim to cross into the United States.

‘I have reports that they’ve got a lot of everybody in that group. It’s a horrible thing,’ Trump told journalists on the South Lawn of the White House as he left for a Texas campaign rally.

He insisted during one exchange that a mid-morning tweet about ‘[c]riminals and unknown Middle Easterners’ would be proven true – that they’re really there – if reporters would only look in the right places.

And on Twitter, President Trump has pledged to use the U.S. military to close the border if that is what it takes

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

When asked by the press how many troops would be involved, President Trump responded by saying “as many as necessary”.

Needless to say, many of the migrants in the caravan are extremely angry with President Trump.  One that was interviewed by CNN even called him “the Antichrist”

A Central American migrant in the 7,000-strong army headed for the United States told CNN over the weekend that Donald Trump is the “Antichrist” and he is “going to hell.”

“Donald Trump is the Antichrist,” the angry migrant shouted at CNN’s Bill Weir in Spanish at the border between Mexico and Guatemala.

“If he doesn’t repent, he is going to hell,” he said.

Of course Donald Trump is not the Antichrist.  He is not the Messiah, and he is not the anti-Messiah either.

Ultimately, Donald Trump is just a man that is trying to do the best that he can in a very difficult position.  And we should support him when he does things right, and we should be able to criticize him when he takes steps in the wrong direction.

Dr. Michael Brown, the author of a brand new book about Donald Trump, made this point very well in his most recent article

We can support President Trump (as I do) without worshipping at his altar. And we can differ with him without damning him (and his followers).

And it looks like President Trump’s relationship with Mexico will never be the same again.  Trump had repeatedly asked the Mexican government to stop this caravan, but instead the Mexican police have “stepped aside” and have allowed the caravan to pass…

For now, Mexican police have merely stepped aside as the caravan has passed, watching first as migrants took rafts across the river that separates the country from Guatemala, and then as they continued by foot along the main highway, chanting, “Si, se pudo,” or “Yes, we did it.”

That response appears to have been conveyed to the White House, and now, once again, Mexico’s most important bilateral relationship appears to be on shaky ground.

In addition, Mexico’s incoming president has made it abundantly clear that he fully supports the migrants

The president’s successor, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who assumes office in December, won his election in part by vowing to fight back against Trump and doing what was in the best interest of Mexico, not necessarily the United States. He said last week that Mexico should give work visas to the would-be refugees, which could grant them freedom of movement throughout the country and lead them to the U.S. border.

So now it appears that President Trump will be facing a full-blown border crisis just in time for the midterm elections.

Could it be possible that someone on the left is responsible for facilitating this crisis?

If life, most things don’t happen by accident, and the timing of this “caravan” does not appear to be an accident either.

Video: Someone Is Handing Out Stacks Of Cash To The Migrants Headed To The United States

With a massive caravan of migrants headed North to the United States from Honduras and President Trump warning Central American officials that he will not only cut aid but possibly deploy the military to stop it, one has to wonder why those folks are still coming.

Moreover, the caravan is reportedly adding scores of migrants every day.

We’re not quite clear on what’s happening in the video below, but it sure does look like those two individuals in white T-shirts are handing cash money from some pretty large stacks.

You don’t see this kind of philanthropy everyday, which begs the questions: Where’s that money coming from? And why are they giving it out like it’s candy?

LATIN AMERICAN RIGHTS GROUP ALLEGES COVER-UP OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT DEATH, ADMITS NO PROOF

  • LULAC claimed that an illegal immigrant inmate was beaten to death by corrections officers and another was put into a coma.
  • The GEO Group, which runs the prison, denied the beatings.
  • LULAC admitted there is not proof of a death and is calling for the prison to be shut down.

A Latin American civil rights organization claimed that guards in a Texas federal detention center beat a group of illegal immigrant inmates so severely that one inmate died, but prison accounts dispute the allegation and the organization is walking back its claim.

The League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) held a press conference on Sept. 6 accusing a handful of corrections officers of brutally beating three Hispanic inmates at Big Spring’s Flightline Correctional Facility after the sister of Jose David Garache-Munoz, one of the aforementioned inmates, contacted LULAC with the claim.

“One [inmate] has died while in custody in ‘the Hole’ as a result of the terrible beat down,” LULAC’s civil rights chair, Agustin Pinedo, said in a press release. But Pinedo told The Daily Caller News Foundation that LULAC has not been able to substantiate the death.

LULAC President Domingo Garcia told TheDCNF that they have not been able to confirm the death but said that multiple prisoners believe the inmate in question is dead because “he’s missing.” Garcia explained that the organization received their information from various inmates, who have corroborated Garache-Munoz’s account.

While Garcia believes the missing inmate was killed, he suggested other possibilities, including that he was moved to another detention facility and is in fact alive. But LULAC’s press release did not include any alternative scenarios and only said that the inmate was killed by prison staff.

LULAC alleged that Garache-Munoz was “savagely beaten into unconsciousness” after officers entered his jail cell on the night of Aug. 11. After handcuffing and pepper spraying him, the guards reportedly dragged Garache-Munoz into an area not viewable by security cameras and attacked him until he was convulsing, leaving him in a coma for five days.

Two other inmates allegedly tried to intervene and were also brutally beaten and all three men were subsequently denied medical treatment, according to LULAC. As a result, one of the inmates, who LULAC originally said was named Sergio, succumbed to his injuries weeks later and died in solitary confinement on Aug. 31.

During LULAC’s press conference, Pinedo said the press release misidentified the supposedly dead inmate and identified him as Irving Ortiz, not Sergio.

The GEO Group, one of the nation’s largest private prison contractors and manager of Flightline, denied the accusations. After staff responded to a disturbance and identified the three inmates in question as instigators, the trio become increasingly aggressive, leading guards to use pepper spray on two of them, according to the GEO Group. (EXCLUSIVE: GOP Senator To Propose Bill Subverting Illegal Aliens From Fleeing Into The US)

“[T]hey were both immediately taken to medical services for an assessment,” GEO Group said in a statement. “One was treated on-site and received no injuries. Upon showing signs of distress, the other inmate was transported to the local hospital where he was treated for eye irritation and discharged the same evening.”

“No other injuries were sustained as a result of this incident and the procedures and processes followed were in accordance with all applicable policies and procedures,” the statement continued.

Flightline Warden Bobby Thompson, who LULAC alleged was the leading perpetrator of the attack, explained that Garache-Munoz “positioned himself in an assaultive stance toward staff” and refused multiple orders to put his hands behind his back. Prison staff ultimately needed to use pepper spray to “gain compliance,” Thompson said in a letter to LULAC.

A committee required to review incidents involving chemical agents in the prison determined that the pepper spray use complied with Bureau of Prison policy. Further, both the medical assessment and hospital records show no signs of the patient having any “bruising, bumps, or lacerations” from the altercation, Thompson said.

Thompson also disputed the claim that Garache-Munoz fell into a coma, saying that the inmate was provided and ate three meals a day during the time in question and attended recreational activities two of the five days it was offered to him. The warden referenced Flightline records.

Moreover, Thompson said that Flightline’s infirmary is not set up for inpatient stays and is not capable of holding an inmate overnight, much less the five days that LULAC said Garache-Munoz is claiming.

Pending investigation of the incident, Garache-Munoz was kept in the Restricted Housing Unit for inmates who pose a danger to the general population, according to Thompson, who said Flightline does not have solitary confinement.

LULAC said restricted housing housing is solitary confinement since inmates are kept away from the general population and that inmates refer to it as “the hole.” The Bureau of Prisons did not respond to a request seeking clarity between RHU and solitary confinement.

Thompson also noted on-going administrative charges against Garache-Munez for “making threats towards staff and attempting to assault staff.”

Following the alleged incident, Garache-Munoz’s family received permission to visit him on two separate occasions. The family said prison guards attempted to intimidate them by “giving them mean looks and laughing at them,” and said that a female guard “yanked hard” on one of the brothers as he was searched for entry into the facility, LULAC’s statement said.

Thompson also disputed the allegation that Garache-Munoz’s brother was assaulted by a female worker, saying that the facility does not conduct cross gender searches. The family did not report the incident to the detention facility because they felt too intimidated, and instead told LULAC, Garcia said.

Garache-Munoz, a Honduran immigrant, was sentenced to one year for unlawful entry, according to LULAC. Neither LULAC nor Garache-Munoz have taken or threatened to take legal action against Flightline or any other parties involved.

Pinedo called for the Bureau of Prisons to launch a full investigation and recommended that the detention center be permanently closed.

Black Americans Who Care About Their Communities Speak Out Against Illegal Immigration

I am glad to see that many in the black community are waking up to the fact that they are Americans and their communities come before illegal immigration!

Rep. Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the Democrats that run California could care less of what these people have to say, but they still need to speak with a united voice and vote and get them out of office. California is going to hell in a handbag.

This video should be mandatory viewing for everyone within the boundaries of the United States. People call me racist for being against illegal immigration but, I’m not. I have many friends who are of Mexican descent and here legally. There are many, many Americans of Mexican descent in the Air Force and I served with many and loved those guys like my brothers but, they are here legally.

We welcome you here as long as you go by our rules. No other country on planet earth lets you walk right in and join the club. How do we know you are not here to hurt us, steal from us, spread infectious diseases from God knows where? Those are just a few things for why people coming here need to be checked first. Lots of people who can’t provide anything for themselves have to take lots of tax money that is for Americans first. It’s our money! Americans pay for this, not the illegal family of 16 who has 10 EBT cards between them and gets cash and housing assistance when our neighborhoods are stricken with poverty and our failing schools in the cities need new competent teachers, computers, textbooks, food, and more. Our government doesn’t rectify that, they use our money to feed 10,000-plus illegal immigrants who jumped the border last month. Yes that many a month people.

Donate $10, $20, $50, $100 and help us continue to fight the opposition media while keeping you updated on conservative news that we need

It’s not a joke and the first community to take the huge economic hit will be the black community and lower-income people of all races because the uneducated illegal immigrants are now in competition with you for your job and he will work for way cheaper. If all of our communities come together, we can force the government to send huge amounts of border police in to start taking these people out. Mexico sold California to the US government, so it’s rightfully America, not little Mexico. If you don’t want your family split up, don’t brake the law by coming here illegally for money.

I am happy to see other black and brown citizens call themselves Americans.

African heritage is one thing but claiming to be African American when you have never been to Africa makes no sense. Americans, plain and simple and doesn’t matter what your race is as long as you are born in the US you are an American citizen. We have to break down these descriptions that divide us and come together as one nation under God indivisible with liberty and justice for all!
