Congress is back in the big capital city, and that means the occasional important hearing. On Wednesday, the House Oversight Committee met to discuss Violence on the Border: Keeping U.S. Personnel Safe.
One important point: only 40 percent of U.S.-Mexico border is considered under operational control.
The testimony of Brandon Judd, President of the National Border Patrol […]
It’s been an interesting week in American border non-security. News came out a few days ago that ISIS was running a camp in Mexico just eight miles south of the US, according to Judicial Watch:
Islamic State operating in Mexico just 8 miles from U.S. border: report, Washington Times, April 14, 2015

JIhadists may be bloodthirsty headchopper savages, but they aren’t stupid, particularly regarding opportunities to smite the hated infidel. They are aware of America’s open southern border and see it as an on-ramp to mass murder for Allah in the US. This fact is hardly news, although the media notice the national security threat of an […]
Jeff Sessions appeared on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Monday morning and spelled out the problems with Mike McCall’s flawed enforcement legislation. Senator Sessions criticized the bill before mark-up and has not changed his mind about the House bill which has passed out of committee.

A country that is serious about national security needs a fortified border, and the Saudis demonstrate that commitment by constructing a multi-layered high-tech model to keep out their enemies from ISIS. Rush Limbaugh mentioned the project during his program on Thursday:
The Great Wall of Saudi Arabia
. . . Saudi Arabia is building a 600-mile great […]
Should citizens feel reassured to learn that unmanned surveillance planes are now keeping watch over hundreds of miles of America’s southern perimeter? Or is the automation a signal that fewer humans will be doing the job of the Border Patrol in the near future?
And what will that job be if Obama’s borderless America comes to […]
Stats are being toted up at the end of FY 2014, one being the number of dead illegal alien border crossers. The press is celebrating that fact that the number of corpses for last year was the lowest in 15 years. One reason given is that invaders now know to turn themselves in to Border […]
I happened to click over to Breitbart.com yesterday afternoon and saw they were about to webcast the new Tea Party Patriots documentary about illegal immigration. Now the film is online and it’s worth your attention, with its ground-level examination of border-area chaos, Mexican cartel infiltration, the jihadist threat and worsened crime:
It’s great that a major […]
It’s amazing that otherwise intelligent people chatter on about “future” border security, with the idea that it ought to happen someday soon (yawn), given the world situation of uncertainty and violence. Now the nation is threatened with ISIS jihadists (headchoppers thought to be too extreme by al Qaeda) but little kiddies from Central America still […]
The Mexican crime syndicates may be murderous thugs but they didn’t make billions of dollars by being stupid about business. When they saw the market changing in their area of operations because of America’s weakened border enforcement, they decided to adjust their strategy accordingly.
The cartels saw Obama’s amnesty chatter as creating a potential for profit […]
Judicial Watch reports that America’s jihadist enemies plan to use the open southern border to attack us. ISIS thugs are congregating in Juarez and may be working to turn the 9/11 anniversary into another big blow, JW says.
What we don’t hear about is increased security along the border — only an urging for increased alertness. […]
Senator Jim Inhofe is the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee and recently voiced a specific concern while home in Oklahoma during the August recess. While being interviewed on a local TV show he remarked about ISIS, “… they’re rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city.”
This is bad news […]
