Texas Border Town Overwhelmed by Mass Migration

by Jose Nino, Big League Politics:

The city of McAllen, Texas is being overwhelmed by mass migration.

The Wall Street Journal provided a sobering overview of how out of control the current migration crisis is getting:

From the start of the federal fiscal year in October through February, the Border Patrol arrested 136,150 people traveling as families for crossing the border illegally, according to data released Tuesday. The prior record for a 12-month period was 107,212, during the fiscal year that ended last September.

20,000 Leftists Force Lockdown of Conservative Conference in Verona, Italy

from Russia Insider:

Alt-left demonstrators descended on the Italian city of Verona Saturday to protest the World Congress of Families, sending the city into a security lockdown.

Riot police and army soldiers in camouflage gear set up roadblocks in various points around Verona’s massive Piazza Bra and its adjoining tributaries, site of the congress and epicenter of the radical feminist and LGBT protests.

The 13th annual World Congress of Families, which featured speakers and participants from around the world to discuss the importance of stable families for the future of civilization, met with surprising opposition, which erupted in Saturday’s demonstrations:

Insanity Level++

by Karl Denninger, Market Ticker:

Why do we keep putting up with this crap?

Organized “caravans” of “migrants” invading our nation?  Who is organizing them?

Who is funding them?

Why haven’t those organizations been sanctioned and had their access to the US financial system cut off?  You think the government doesn’t know who is spending the money?  Baloney; not only are they spending money they’re spending US money, which means they’re accessing and using the US financial system.

Trump Halts Aid to El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras as Flood of Migrants Overwhelms Border Patrol

by John Hayward, Breitbart:

President Donald Trump on Friday night halted all direct foreign aid to El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, fulfilling a longstanding threat to end payments to so-called “Northern Triangle” countries if they failed to halt migrant caravans headed for the United States.

“At the secretary’s instruction, we are carrying out the President’s direction and ending FY 2017 and FY 2018 foreign assistance programs for the Northern Triangle. We will be engaging Congress as part of this process,” a State Department spokesperson said on Saturday.

Really Bad Ideas, Part 7: Open Borders

by John Rubino, Dollar Collapse:

Now that we’re all free to speak our minds (maybe we should we call this the “post-political-caution world”) a lot of previously discredited ideas have re-emerged and are being tossed into the debate – apparently without much thought to, for instance, their horrendous unintended consequences.

One such idea that’s, ahem, gaining a lot of currency lately is Modern Monetary Theory(previously known as currency debasement). Another, which seems even easier to dismantle, is open borders. But the emergent democratic socialist movement apparently takes it seriously. Here’s an excerpt from a representative article:

Guatemala Intel Minister: Migrant Caravans Are ‘Well-Planned,’ Not Spontaneous

by Kristina Wong, Breitbart:

Guatemalan head of intelligence Mario Duarte said during a visit to Washington Tuesday that the migrant caravans heading to the U.S. southern border are “well-planned” and “well-organized” by those wanting to “weaponize those in need.”

“This was not a spontaneous event. It was well-planned. It was well-organized,” Duarte, head of the Secretariat of Strategic Intelligence of Guatemala, said at an event hosted by the Center for a Free Secure Society at the National Press Club.

The Migrant Invasion of Europe, Dawn of the New Multicultural Dystopia

from Russia Insider:

“Migrant crisis? What crisis?
There is no migrant crisis!”

— Ian Birrell, British political pundit, in the Daily Mail

I do Mr Birrell a wrong by implying that he is unaware of the caravans of illegal immigrants pouring into Europe unrelentingly, mostly from five Muslim countries: Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Nigeria and Eritrea.

He would have to be living on a different planet not to be aware that the “migrant crisis” is a crisis indeed: not so much for the migrants who have everything to gain if they can smuggle themselves into Europe, but it’s obviously a crisis to their European host countries who have everything to lose if the migrants should succeed in gaining a foothold here and, in the process, force their alien values and culture upon us.

by Jon Hall, FM Shooter:

During an awards acceptance speech on MondayGermany’s Angela Merkel called on the international community to “stand up” to “excessive populism and nationalism”.

Texas Voter Fraud Evidence: Lone Start State Discovers 95,000 Non-Citizens On Voter Rolls – 58,000 Voted

by Tim Brown, Freedom OutPost:

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that there were 95,000 individuals who had been identified “non-US citizens” as being registered to vote in the Lone Star State.  What’s more striking is that evidence presented by Texas Secretary of State David Whitely confirms that 58,000 of these individuals have broken the law and voted in “one or more” recent elections.
