Minors Not Being Accepted At US Border


Now this is backwards, if anything we should be accepting the children with their parents first. The head of Mexico's immigration agency said Monday that his country won't accept migrants younger than 18 while they await the resolution of their U.S. asylum claims.

Mexican officials had previously said the United States expressed interest in extending the "remain in Mexico" policy to other border crossings. But Guillen said Mexico will accept only asylum seekers aged 18 to 60 at El Chaparral.

Mexico will accept migrants only from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, and will give them four-month visas. Guillen said that since Dec. 1, Mexico has given 3,983 transit visas to Central Americans, most of whom hope to reach the United States.

Mexico will also extend other work-visa programs to apply to more Mexican states and more Central American countries. U.S. authorities plan to bus asylum seekers back and forth to the border for court hearings in downtown San Diego, including an initial appearance within 45 days.

The U.S. has witnessed a surge in asylum claims, especially from Central American families. Due largely to a court-imposed 20-day limit on detaining children, families are typically released with a notice to appear in immigration court. With a backlog of more than 800,000 cases, it can take years to settle cases.

166 Skulls Found In Mexico


Mexican police discovered a mass grave in the Mexico city of Veracruz, which contained the remains of 166 people. The city, located on the Eastern coast of the country, has been heavily plagued by cartel-related violence, as it's used as a pathway to transport drugs to the U.S.

Veracruz attorney general, Jorge Winckler, held a press conference, where he revealed that it's believed that the bodies have been buried for two years. He also stated, "Aside from human remains, we have found more than 200 items of clothing, 114 pieces of identification, as well as different accessories and personal items."

Last March, a mass grave containing 250 skulls was found in the same city, and it was reported that there were 30,000 murders across Mexico in 2017 - the highest in a year since 1997. According to the national register of missing people, over 37,000 people are also currently unaccounted for across the country.

Mexico Legalizes Medical Marijuana

Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto officially published a bill that makes medical marijuana available and legal in Mexico. The historic change in policy for this critical Latin American nation marks another country that has welcomed cannabis as an important tool for healing the sick.

On Friday, April 28, Mexico’s lower house in parliament overwhelmingly passed the bill with a 374-7 vote. It was then up to the leader of the country to officially sign and turn it into law, which the President finally executed today.

The recent passing of the bill in parliament was publicly endorsed by Mexico’s Secretary of Health, Dr. José Narro Robles, who stated: “I welcome the adoption of the therapeutic use of cannabis in Mexico.”

Earthquake Hits Mexico City

A powerful, magnitude-7.5 earthquake shook central and southern Mexico on Friday. The U.S. Geological Survey said it was centered northwest of the Pacific resort of Acapulco, where many Mexicans are vacationing for the Easter holiday.

The quake struck 164 miles (265 kilometers) southwest of Mexico City, which shook for at least 30 seconds. Buildings swayed as people fled high rises and took to the streets. Because of the Easter holiday, that city was less crowded than usual.

Mexico City is vulnerable even to distant earthquakes because much of it sits atop the muddy sediments of drained lake beds that quiver as quake waves hit. The magnitude-8.1 quake in 1985 that killed at least 6,000 people and destroyed many buildings in Mexico City was centered 250 miles (400 kilometers) away on the Pacific Coast.

Trump Begins Construction Of Border Wall


Construction started Friday on the US-Mexico border wall project at Border Field State Park, the third project in San Diego County. Roughly 14 miles of the 8-to-10-foot-high barrier made out of scrap metal will be replaced with a ‘bollard-style wall’ more than twice as tall at the US-Mexico border.

Construction on a stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border wall kicked off Friday in San Diego, Calif. The Texas construction company, SLSCO, is in charge for building the San Diego part of the wall. The construction will cost an estimated $147 million, according to FOX 4.

Cocaine And Money

Cocaine comes from a natural plant grown deep in the jungles of South America. To bear fruit, farmers plant the plant that make cocaine; then the plant is picked and processed for distribution. The shimmering white colored powder cross over transnational borders and eventually find its way around the world where hordes of users sniffed it up into someone's sniffing nose or shot into a user's veins. Cocaine can either make you poor and weak, make you do the unimaginable, make you wealthy--or it can even take your mind on weird trips. As Rock Star singer Rick James once said, "Cocaine is one helluva drug."

But it is no secret that selling cocaine on a grand scale can bring filthy riches to a player in the dope game. Cocaine prices vary but profits are enormous for a heavy hitter depending where the dope is sold. Narcotic analysts explains that illegal drugs like and cocaine and heroin cost much less where it is produced. Worldwide, prices can range from $2 a gram in Panama to over $300 per gram in New Zealand.

According to U.S. law enforcement, Colombian national police, and Foreign narcotic experts, a wholesaler can buy a kilo of cocaine straight from the jungle in Colombia for approximately $2200.00. At Colombian ports, wholesale prices for a kilo of cocaine average between $5,500.oo, and $7,000.00. DEA (Drug Enforcement Administration) officials has reported over the years that cocaine prices increased exponentially once it leaves production and transferred to markets in the United States and foreign markets. Actually, as the report points out, the farther away, and the more isolated the drugs are from different countries the higher the cost for dealers and users.
 For example, Central America cocaine cost $10,000.00 per kilogram, and in Southern Mexico that same kilo sells for $12,000,00, unless a broker make an agreement to reduce the price based on multiple kilos of cocaine. Notice the much higher price between Central America and Mexico. After cocaine is transported into Mexico City area, a kilo is worth approximately $16,000.00 near the border town of Northern Mexico. Depending on the location in the U.S., wholesale on the streets average between $24,000.00, and $27,000.00.

Coca (a substance made from leaves that actually make cocaine) is one of the oldest, potent, most dangerous stimulants of natural origins. Australian world renowned psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud who once used cocaine himself became the first to publicly promote cocaine as a tonic to cure depression and sexual impotence.

Around 1886, the popularity of the drug got a higher boost when maverick John Pemberton mixed coca leaves as an ingredient in his new soft drink now known today as "Coca Cola". Effects from consumers sipping coke only skyrocketed Coca-Cola popularity during the 1900s.

Back during the 1600s, people chewed coca like tobacco. In the 1800s, cocaine earned the distinction as a popular mind altering substance to get high on among the upper-class people in Europe. If history correct, Pope Leo XIII gave papal endorsement to a coca-treated Bordeaux wine. During 1850s' an Italian neurologist named Paolo Manteganza, became so addicted to gnawing on coca leaves until he wrote excitedly about the effects.

Should El Chapo Be Locked Up In America?


What is the true reason El Chapo is locked up? Is it because he created a Government of his own just like America. If we sell cannabis to get ahead, what did El Chapo do that was different than the Government?

El Chapo owned fields of marijuana plants, so do the Government of the United States. El Chapo pretty much took over Mexico just like America was taken. On top of that, if America had prisoners out of their border, they would fight to get them back. So why is El Chapo in America?

The border wall is only one way to keep the trafficking out so big business in America can control the drug trade. You slow down pounds of marijuana from Mexico, you control the market. It's physics.

But, El Chapo did have his dealing in large quantities of cocaine to the U.S. off the coast of California. In the meantime, they appear to be taking extraordinary measures to prevent a third escape. El Chapo cartel mastermind revealed as ghost crime boss who has never been locked up. So how did he escape the first two times?

El Chapo was born in the rugged mountains of the Sierra Madre, where he grew up in abject poverty before becoming one of the most powerful figures in the Sinaloa cartel. A US attorney says Joaquin Guzman is known for "death and destruction." Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn have charged the world's biggest drug lord with 12 murders.

El Chapo earned a percentage of his business and was soon the top drug producer in Mexico. At his height, his Sinaloa Cartel was said to have been responsible for about half of the meth, heroin, coke, and weed being smuggled into America.

After the FED arrested Juan Guzman, now America has control of his accounts. El Chapo was induced with a chemical truth serum while undergoing hypnosis by the CIA/DEA. How do you think they get suspected murderers to volunteer info of their crimes?

Why isn't El Chapo locked up in his own Country? Why is he here. He is Big Business as if he was the President of the U.S.

Kids Are Dying At Our Border


The Washington Post reports the girl died of dehydration and shock more than eight hours after she was arrested by agents near Lordsburg, New Mexico. The girl was from Guatemala and was traveling with a group of 163 people who approached agents to turn themselves in on Dec. 6.

A 7-year-old girl who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border with her father last week died after being taken into the custody of the U.S. Border Patrol.

It's unknown what happened to the girl during the eight hours before she started having seizures and was flown to an El Paso hospital.

Source

In a statement, Customs and Border Protection said the girl had not eaten or consumed water in several days.

Processing 163 immigrants in one night could have posed challenges for the agency, whose detention facilities are meant to be temporary and don't usually fit that many people.

When a Border Patrol agent arrests someone, that person gets processed at a facility but usually spends no more than 72 hours in custody before they are either transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement or, if they're Mexican, quickly deported home.

The girl's death raises questions about whether border agents knew she was ill and whether she was fed anything or given anything to drink during the eight-plus hours she was in custody.

Immigrants, attorneys and activists have long raised issues with the conditions of Border Patrol holding cells. In Tucson, an ongoing lawsuit claims holding cells are filthy, extremely cold and lacking basic necessities such as blankets. A judge overseeing that lawsuit has ordered the agency's Tucson Sector, which patrols much of the Arizona-Mexico border, to provide blankets and mats to sleep on and to continually turn over surveillance footage from inside the cells.

The Border Patrol has seen an increasing trend of large groups of immigrants, many with young children, walking up to agents and turning themselves in. Most are Central American and say they are fleeing violence. They turn themselves in instead of trying to circumvent authorities, many with plans to apply for asylum.

Agents in Arizona see groups of over 100 people on a regular basis, sometimes including infants and toddlers.

Arresting such groups poses logistical problems for agents who have to wait on transport vans that are equipped with baby seats to take them to processing facilities, some which are at least half hour north of the border.

The Water Monster Spotted In Mexico

Rumors are that the once disappeared water monster that was named exstinct has been spotted in Mexico. exico's salamander-like axolotl apparently hasn't disappeared from its only known natural habitat in Mexico City's few remaining lakes.

Researchers say they have sighted, but not caught, two of the slippery little creatures during a second effort to find them. A weekslong effort last year by researchers in skiffs trying to net axolotls in the shallow, muddy waters of Xochimilco lake found none, raising fears that they might only now survive in captivity.

The axolotl, admittedly ugly with a slimy tail, plumage-like gills and mouth that curls into an odd smile, is known as the "water monster" and the "Mexican walking fish." It's only natural habitat is the Xochimilco network of lakes and canals — the "floating gardens" of earth piled on reed mats that the Aztecs built to grow crops but are now suffering from pollution, urban sprawl and invasive species.

 Ana de la Reguera grew up in the tropical state of Veracruz, on the Gulf Coast of Mexico. De la Reguera's introduction into film began with Dust to Dust (2000), which earned her two nominations: "El Heraldo de la Revelación Femenina" (Best New Actress) and "Eres Mejor Actriz" (Best Actress).

In 2008 she became the new face for Cover Girl worldwide, alongside celebrities like Drew Barrymore, Queen Latifah, Ellen DeGeneres and Rihanna. The beginning of 2010 brought the opening of her Hollywood film Cop Out (2010), co-starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan.

As if her busy acting career isn't enough, de la Reguera is also heavily involved with charity work. She also founded the organization VeracruzANA AC, which is a philanthropic organization whose mission is to raise funds and build a tourist boulevard of Antigua--something that has been promised by political organizations for years.

Major Drug Tunnel Discovered


A tunnel was discovered on August 13, after the owner of the former KFC, Ivan Lopez, was pulled over by the San Luis Police Department. A canine unit alerted officers to two toolboxes in Lopez' truck. Inside the boxes, authorities say they found 118 kilograms of methamphetamine, six grams of cocaine, three kilograms of fentanyl, 13 kilograms of white heroin, and six kilograms of brown heroin.

A tunnel that stretches from a former Kentucky Fried Chicken in Arizona all the way to a home in Mexico was discovered last week by investigators, who believe the secret passageway was used for drug smuggling, KSWT reports.

Earlier that day, Lopez was seen removing toolboxes from the old KFC. He is the owner of the building that once served as the fast food restaurant.

Agents executed a search warrant at the former restaurant and Lopez's residence. When investigating the old KFC, agents found the entrance of the tunnel in the kitchen area. It is eight inches in diameter, 22 feet deep and extended 590 feet long, HSI officials said. It ends at a residence in San Luis Rio Colorado, Sonora, Mexico.

At the Mexican side, the tunnel exited through a trap door underneath a bed. Authorities believe the narcotics being smuggled through the tunnel were being pulled up with a rope.

Man Jumps Off Bridge

An undocumented immigrant who was deported back to his native Mexico for what was a third time on Tuesday, February 21, committed suicide within an hour of his release on the other side of the U.S./Mexico border.

Guadalupe Olivas Valencia, 45, was declared deceased at a local hospital, but is said to have died of a heart attack triggered by a concussion he suffered from his leap off of a bridge. According to a source close to Valencia, he had been experiencing bouts of anxiety from feeling depressed over his departure. Aside from being left at the El Chaparral border crossing between San Diego and Tijuana, which is an area he was unfamiliar with, he was said to dread the idea of returning to his hometown of Sinaloa, where for years El Chapo oversaw a reign of terror atop the narcotics trade.

Tensions have been on high in the Mexican migrant community, ever since President Trump took office with a vow to rid the nation of immigrants living in the States illegally. But their fears were all the more exasperated earlier this week, when the passing of stricter Department of Homeland Security guidelines are being instituted to allow for authorities to have more leeway in identifying and expelling immigrants.

Leader Of Gulf Cartel Arrested

Gulf Cartel leader Juan Francisco Saenz-Tamez was arrested on October 9, 2014, while shopping in Edinburg, Texas, authorities announced yesterday, when Saenz-Tamez made an appearance in a Texas court on drug trafficking charges. His ascend to the top is further proof that the Gulf Cartel is in a steady decline after the imprisonment of many of its leaders.

“Juan Francisco Saenz-Tamez, also known as Panochitas, became the head of the Gulf Cartel following the 2013 arrest of former leader Mario Ramirez-Trevino,” DEA Administrator Michele M. Leonhart told the press. “He moved steadily up the cartel ranks, working as a lookout, record keeper, plaza boss, and finally its leader. He oversaw much of the violence and bloodshed that has plagued Mexico.”

A federal investigation into the large-scale trafficking of illegal drugs from Mexico into Texas led to the identity of Saenz-Tamez. The investigation revealed that thousands of kilograms of cocaine and marijuana were shipped into Texas and then to locations across the nation, including Florida, Ohio, Michigan, Mississippi, Louisiana, Washington D.C., Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Maryland and Georgia.

Saenz-Tamez was indicted by a federal grand jury on September 5, 2013, and charged with conspiracy with intent to distribute cocaine, conspiracy with intent to distribute marijuana, and conspiracy to money launder. If convicted, Saenz-Tamez faces a minimum of 10 years and up to life in federal prison for the drug charges and up to 20 years in federal prison for the money laundering charge.

Mexican Police Arrested

The four men arrested by the U.S. Border Patrol after a man with a gunshot was found last week in Hudspeth County turned out to be Mexican law enforcement officers who inadvertently crossed the border. The Israeli-made drone was quickly returned to Mexico with U.S. officials citing trust between both nations for helping solve the situation.

On the evening of June 5, Border Patrol agents found a man with a gunshot wound to a leg near farms about two miles east of Hudspeth County line, Border Patrol spokesman Agent Ramiro Cordero said Friday. Four other men were arrested after crossing the border.

Cordero said that the four men were Chihuahua state police officers who were armed and had mistakenly crossed the border searching for the wounded man. The international boundary is at the middle of the Rio Grande, which was dry at that location.

In 2009, six Mexican federal police officers were detained by U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers in El Paso after they walked into U.S. territory while looking for a suspect vehicle on the Bridge of the Americas, according to El Paso Times archives. The uniformed officers were detained for less than four hours before they and their weapons were returned to Mexico. The border is set at the middle of the international bridge.

The Orbiter Mini Unmanned Aerial Vehicle did not have permission to be in U.S. airspace, according to El Paso Times archives. Mexican officials refused to talk about the drone’s mission but said that it was on a surveillance flight. The drone developed mechanical problems and Mexican officials immediately notified the U.S. that the drone could fall on the U.S. side of the border.

The Evolution Of Gangster Rap


Gangsta rap or Gangster rap is a style of hip hop characterized by themes and lyrics that generally emphasize the "gangsta" lifestyle. The genre evolved from hard rap into a distinct form, pioneered in the mid-1980s by rappers such as Schoolly D and Ice-T, and was popularized in the later part of the 1980s by groups like N.W.A. 

After the national attention that Ice-T and N.W.A attracted in the late 1980s and early 1990s, gangsta rap became the most commercially lucrative subgenre of hip hop. Many (if not most) gangsta rap artists openly boast of their associations with various active street gangs as part of their artistic image, with the Bloods and Crips being the most commonly represented. Gangsta rap parallels other indigenous gang and crime-oriented forms of music, such as the narcocorrido genre of northern Mexico.

Hip-hop has arguably been the best genre of music in the past two decades. As hip-hop maintains its title, a lot has changed about the genre, such as the lyrics. Hip-hop has two phases, old school and new school each of which give off a different vibe.
