Wall

Getting inspiration.

The Department of Homeland Security issued a report on Monday, indicating that nearly 740,000 of the foreigners who legally entered the US, overstayed their visas and continued to live in the country even at the end of 2016.

The number of people who overstayed their visas, a total of 739,478, amount to a meagre 1.47 percent of the 50 million who visited the US through airports and seaports, and were supposed to leave last year, according to the DHS report. The report does not include those who arrived in the US through a vehicular or ground point of entry.

According to the latest numbers, foreigners choosing to overstay their visas in the US, make up almost half of the country’s illegal population, which is estimated to be somewhere near 11 million people.

Senator Marco Rubi (R-Fla.), during his presidential campaign, raised the issue of visa overstays. He told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” back in 2015: “We have a porous border, meaning not just the border with Mexico, but 40 percent of people in this country, illegally, are overstaying visas.”

The DHS began collecting data on visa overstays in 2015, making yesterday’s release the department’s second report on the issue. The federal agency said in its latest report that it maintains a database of departure and arrival information for all visitors to the US, and sends an updated list of individuals who overstay their visas to the Customs and Border Protection agency, daily. The CBP is tasked with enforcing the US’ immigration laws.

“Identifying overstays is important for national security, public safety, immigration enforcement, and processing applications for immigration benefits,” the new report said. “[D]HS will continue to annually and publicly release this overstay data, and looks forward to providing updates to congressional members and their staff on its ongoing progress.”

Almost 416,500 of the estimated 45 million foreigners in the US whose visas expired in 2015, overstayed in the country illegally. However, because the DHS changed the visa categories it previously used to calculate the number of expired visa holders still in the country, the total number of overstays cannot be compared with the previous year.

Heeellllooo??? Is this the march against Trump?

Chanting strong pro-illegal immigrant, pro-amnesty, and open border slogans at a so-called “mega march,” protestors marched through downtown Dallas on Sunday. However, the “mega march” failed to attract the expected numbers.

Called an interfaith “family, unity, and empowerment” march, the 2017 Dallas Mega March pushed for “real immigration reform, an end to aggressive deportation efforts that have separated families, targeted DACA students, and left our communities in fear” and “an end to executive orders that discriminated against our Muslim brothers and sisters based on their faith.”

While the organizers had boasted of an expected turnout of 100,000 supporters, after almost half a million had showed up at a similar protest 11 years ago, they trimmed their estimate down to 20,000 participants later. However, after all was said and done, the Dallas Police Department, which had a heavy contingent ready in case of any mishap, accounted for only around 3,200 supporters.

The Dallas Police Department tweeted:

“The #MegaMarch2017 is winding down. The crowd estimate was about 3,200 and there were no reported incidents or arrests.”

11 years ago, in the 2006 Mega March, hundreds of Latino mega marchers carried Mexican and American flags. However, participants were instructed to “wear white, red, and blue” in a show of solidarity and were also told “only USA flags allowed.”

Protestors were however allowed to hold homemade signs. One sign read: “No ban, no wall.” Another said: “Rise Up!” indicating support for the “Unite, Rise up and Defend” campaign launched by the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) in February. The Hispanic activist group is a staunch critic of Trump’s anti-immigration policies and supports DREAMer and DACA programs.

LULAC’s National President Roger Rocha, Jr. spoke at the Dallas Mega March: “There are times you have to march to get your point across. This is one of those times.” He said the mega march was quite similar to the women’s march held in Washington DC. “Same thing here but for immigration reform and to start getting families together again,” he said.

This little guy is there excuse.

Wildlife conservation groups are collaborating with a federal government agency to halt construction of the southern border wall by fudging science to claim that unimpeded trans-border corridors are essential to an “endangered species” with 99% of its population in Mexico. Under the plan, large areas of Arizona and New Mexico would be prohibited from erecting a border wall so that jaguars—which don’t even occupy the area—can roam back and forth between the two countries. More than ¾ million acres in Arizona and New Mexico would be designated as critical habitat for jaguars under the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA), which specifically states that critical habitat can only be designated for the United States.

Judicial Watch obtained records from Arizona’s Game and Fish Department, local governments and one of the biologists fighting the effort to designate the area a “critical habitat” for jaguars. It’s been a years-long battle that started in 2012 when the Obama administration relaxed ESA requirements to make designation of critical habitat easer for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). This includes lowering scientific standards and essentially caving in to leftist groups. The result, according to biologist and attorney Dennis Parker, is more restrictions on private property, grazing, mineral exploration and development not to mention national security. Furthermore, no scientifically verifiable record of jaguar breeding exists in the area and only lone, transient male jaguars are occasionally and peripherally occurrent, Parker said. In a document addressed to USFWS, Arizona’s Game and Fish Department states that “habitat essential to the conservation of the jaguar does not exist in either Arizona or New Mexico under any scientifically credible definition of that term.”

One of the world’s leading big cat experts, Dr. Alan Rabinowitz, confirms that less than one percent of the jaguar habitat in the world is in the United States and that there’s nothing about the lands in the southwest U.S. that make them critical to the continued survival of the jaguar as a species. The renowned wildlife ecologist heads a nonprofit devoted to the conservation of 38 wild cat species and their ecosystems. Jaguars are among them and two Arizona municipalities—the city of Sierra Vista and Cochise County—that will be heavily impacted by the proposed federal measure are citing Rabinowitz’s work to halt the problematic jaguar recovery plan. Rabinowitz refers to the federal plan as “little more than smoke and mirrors” that uses assumption and speculation as fact to justify “defining critical habitat in the Unites States for a species which simply does not live in the United States and has not resided there as a population for at least half a century.” Furthermore, Rabinowitz says the jaguar south of the border is doing quite well and has genetic connectivity through designated landscape corridors.

If USFWS makes its scientifically flawed jaguar recovery plan an official agency policy it will cost American taxpayers some $607 million in the next five decades, records show. In a recent document to USFWS a coalition of counties and cities in Arizona and New Mexico as well as the Pima Natural Conservation District, remind the federal agency about the faulty science behind the proposed jaguar recovery plan. The group refers to it as the “radical departure from sound science, policy, Endangered Species Act interpretation and the clear and present danger to national and citizen security.” In this case, the ESA is being used to further a political agenda, Parker insists, adding that the supposed need for unimpeded trans-border corridors is based on opinion and value-laden beliefs rather than scientific information as the ESA actually requires. “All this junk science will become enshrined as science for the jaguar,” Parker said, adding that if USFWS adapts the jaguar recovery play as a policy it will affect everything from interstate highway travel to border security.

USFWS already determined years ago that no jurisdiction in the United States contains the features essential for the conservation of jaguars that required special management considerations and protection from the agency. “Because there are no areas or features essential to the conservation of the jaguar in the United States that meet the definition of critical habitat, designation of critical habitat for the jaguar is not beneficial,” the agency stated in a 2006 Federal Register notice. Nothing has changed to make that assessment any less factual, biologists interviewed by Judicial Watch affirm. They assure that land essential to the species is located south of the International Border between the United States and Mexico.

Two of the groups colluding with the feds to enact the jaguar recovery plan are the Center for Biological Diversity and Defenders of Wildlife. The Center for Biological Diversity denounces “large-scale construction of walls and other infrastructure that disrupt lives and divide the landscape” along the southern border. Defenders of Wildlife is currently pushing to introduce up to 250 jaguars to Arizona in response to the construction of a border wall. The group is the force behind the government’s jaguar recovery plan and asserts it’s critical to “maintain movement corridors” between the U.S. and Mexico. To make its case, Defenders of Wildlife claims that two male jaguars, dubbed Macho B and El Jefe, have recently wandered into the mountains of southern Arizona and New Mexico. “Natural reappearances like these lend new urgency for actions to re-establish a reproducing population of jaguars that includes contiguous habitat in both the United States and Mexico,” the group says.

record number

There are a record number of Hispanics that believe Trump will win the presidency and they are playing the odds.

Hundreds of thousands of central and South Americans are flocking to America illegally, because they think Trump is going to win and build that wall.

They want to get to America before robots take all the jobs.

The numbers that came across in August were just slightly off the all-time high in 2014, but there is another scarier record that was broken.

Unaccompanied minors that were taken into custody spiked to an all-time high.

Broken family units are also among the high numbers.

Right now the southern border is a mess and it is getting worse.

Normally during the summer months and especially in August, we see the number of people crossing the border dramatically drop due to the summer heat.

This year is different. The numbers of families, kids and individuals from South and Central America that are entering our country illegally have continued to climb almost yearly.

If they didn’t think that Trump would win and build the wall, then they wouldn’t make the trip during the summer to beat the election.
