The Washington Examiner: July migrant apprehensions plummeting 25%, Mexico’s help credited

Federal immigration officials, citing Mexico’s help and new Trump administration initiatives, are seeing far fewer illegal immigrants at the southern border than expected and now believe that those seized this month will be 25% fewer than in June, far more than the historic average drop.

What’s more, said Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services, the number of migrants encountered at the border should continue to plummet as Mexico stretches its cooperation with the U.S. further across the southern border and changes to the asylum process kick in.

In an interview, Cuccinelli said that those caught at the border will likely be below 80,000 in July, a 25% drop from June when 104,344 were apprehended or turned away.

Washington Times: 55% of Hispanic voters approve citizenship question on census: Harvard poll

Two-thirds of voters approve of a citizenship question on the 2020 census, and that includes a majority of Hispanic voters — despite claims by Democratic lawmakers that the inquiry would discourage participation in Latino communities.

A Harvard University Center for American Political Studies/Harris poll found that 67% of all registered U.S. voters say the census should ask the citizenship question when the time comes. That includes 88% of Republicans, 63% of independents and 52% of Democrats.

Most notably, the poll found that 55% of Hispanic voters favor the idea.

Encyclopaedia Britannica: Concentration Camp | Facts, History, & Definition

Due note the part that states, “They are also to be distinguished from refugee camps or detention and relocation centres for the temporary accommodation of large numbers of displaced persons.”

Concentration camp, internment centre for political prisoners and members of national or minority groups who are confined for reasons of state security, exploitation, or punishment, usually by executive decree or military order. Persons are placed in such camps often on the basis of identification with a particular ethnic or political group rather than as individuals and without benefit either of indictment or fair trial. Concentration camps are to be distinguished from prisons interning persons lawfully convicted of civil crimes and from prisoner-of-war camps in which captured military personnel are held under the laws of war. They are also to be distinguished from refugee camps or detention and relocation centres for the temporary accommodation of large numbers of displaced persons.

AP News: O’Rourke visits Mexico, meets turned away US asylum seekers

O’Rourke visits Mexico to campaign with illegals… Isn’t that collusion with a foreign power?

Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke visited Mexico on Sunday and listened to tearful immigrants say they fled Central American violence and turmoil to seek asylum in the U.S., but were turned away at the border.

In his first international trip as a White House hopeful, the former congressman traveled to Ciudad Juarez, across the Rio Grande from his native El Paso, Texas, to meet what his campaign described as “individuals and families directly impacted by Donald Trump’s cruel and inhumane policies.”

The New York Times: Opinion | The Treatment of Migrants Likely ‘Meets the Definition of a Mass Atrocity’

The left wing wants to dox federal employees… I do think there’s a crime in that.

The identities of the individual Customs and Border Protection agents who are physically separating children from their families and staffing the detention centers are not undiscoverable. Immigration lawyers have agent names; journalists reporting at the border have names, photos and even videos. These agents’ actions should be publicized, particularly in their home communities.

This is not an argument for doxxing — it’s about exposure of their participation in atrocities to audiences whose opinion they care about.
