After Agent’s Death, Trump Declares US ‘Must Build the Wall!’

By Fred Lucas, The Daily Signal

President Donald Trump is renewing his demand that Congress fund a wall on the southern border after a U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed from injuries inccurred while working over the weekend in southwest Texas, while his partner was injured.

“Border Patrol officer killed at southern border, another badly hurt,” the president said in a tweet. “We will seek out and bring to justice those responsible. We will, and must, build the wall!”

Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez, 36, and his partner were responding to “activity” in Van Horn, Texas. Martinez died and his partner, not named by officials or in news accounts, is reportedly hospitalized. News reports Monday morning said the government hasn’t confirmed what the agents were responding to.

The cause of death is not known. Jeanette Harper, with the FBI’s El Paso, Texas, office told the San Antonio Express-News: “They were not fired upon. There are so many different agencies working together that we need to come together and develop a timeline.”

“Earlier this morning, I was notified that Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez died as a result of serious injuries suffered while on patrol in the Big Bend Sector of our southern border in Texas,” acting Secretary of Homeland Security Elaine Duke said in a public statement. The Border Patrol is a division of the Department of Homeland Security.

Duke continued:

Agent Martinez was responding to activity while on patrol with another agent, who was also seriously injured. We are fully supporting the ongoing investigation to determine the cause of this tragic event. On behalf of the quarter of a million frontline officers and agents of DHS, my thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of Agent Martinez and to the agent who is in serious condition.

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott also weighed in.

Media tries to deflect Al Franken sexual harassment by blaming Trump

Rio Grande Valley – Liberals received their marching orders and the orders are to deflect to Trump in handling Senator Al Franken’s sexual harassment scandal.  Franken has been accused of sexual misconduct when a long held photograph of him reaching out to seemingly grasp the breast of sleeping journalist Leeann Tweeden.

The photo was taken while both Franken and Tweeden were attending a 2006 USO Tour.

Liberals, rather than address the situation at hand, opted to compare the sexual advance to that of Judge Roy Moore and his sexual misconduct allegations. Moore is currently seeking a highly coveted U.S. Senate seat in Alabama.

President Donald Trump’s tweet regarding Franken’s conduct sent the liberal press into over-drive, with the press criticizing Trump’s response to Franken in comparison to his handling of Moore’s allegations.

Governor Abbott signs ban on “sanctuary cities” local pro illegal immigration groups react

The bill, signed on Facebook Live, served as crushing blow to local pro-illegal immigration groups, who were quick to condemn the signing.

Austin – Governor Greg Abbot (R) signed into law, SB 4, an anti-sanctuary cities bill that would outlaw municipalities and county governments from creating legislation that would serve to protect and harbor illegal immigrants.  Abbots signed the bill after clearing both chambers of the Texas Legislature four days ago, and opted to mark the occasion by signing the bill on Facebook Live, rather than a traditional signing surrounded by the press. The law is scheduled to take effect September 1, 2017.

May Day: Local organizations plan “Day without an Immigrant” protest

In addition to illegal immigrants, members of all alleged suppressed minority groups are encouraged to skip work tomorrow to protest immigration and labor laws.

Local – Local pro-illegal immigration advocacy groups, particularly La Union de Pueblo Entero (LUPE), are calling on the local community to join with them in skipping work to protest with a “Day Without an Immigrant.”  May Day, as the protest is commonly referred to has its origins as far back as late 1800’s, in which workers protested and striked for proper wages, labor hours, and working conditions.

In 2006, the May Day protested shifted to focus primarily on illegal immigration issues, particularly for total amnesty for the nations 11 million illegal immigrants.  Open border supporters believe protest is needed more so now that immigration authorities are now been empowered to enforce United States immigration laws and especially since the State of Texas has cleared a path for SB 4, which would outlaw sanctuary cities.  Continue reading “May Day: Local organizations plan “Day without an Immigrant” protest”

LETTERS: Texas Bathroom Bill SB6

Senate Bill 6 has been forwarded to Texas Senate to be decided on.  The “bathroom bill” as it’s colloquially referred, would limit individuals to use the bathroom of his/her biological origin.  Naturally, this was seen as an anti-LGBT position, and a counter-protest has emerged.  I have written about my personal position regarding gender neutral public bathrooms, specifically regarding the law passed in North Carolina.  Evidence was provided that illustrated that abuses and compromising situations were occurring in result of troubled individuals abusing gender neutral public restrooms.   Continue reading “LETTERS: Texas Bathroom Bill SB6”
