 Border Patrol Apprehends 7000 Illegal Immigrants
In One Week, In One Sector

(Neon Nettle) — CBD agents operating on the United States Southern Border have apprehended over 7000 illegal immigrants in one week, in just one sector, according to officials.

Border agents at Rio Grande Valley (RGV) Sector continue to apprehend large numbers of illegal aliens, arresting, on average, nearly 1000 per day.

RGV Sector leads the nation in illegal alien apprehensions, the sector now accounts for nearly 50 percent of all arrest along the entire Southwest border.

Last week, RGV Sector agents arrested more than 1,300 subjects in one day, which marks the second time in two weeks this number has been reached.

According to US Customs and Border Protection, the majority of these arrests are family units and unaccompanied children from Central and South America, which greatly impact the number of agents available to carry out the border security mission within the RGV Sector.

 Mexican Highwaymen Kill Migrants After Failing To Extort Payment In Exchange For Passage

(Wash Examiner) — Two men traveling from Central America were killed and eight others wounded Sunday after a group of armed men opened fire on the migrants because they refused to pay bribes to pass through a region of southern Mexico they control, according to local media.

The murders took place Sunday morning as a couple of large trucks carrying a total of 90 Central American migrants were held up by paramilitary forces in Mexico's southern state of Chiapas, which sits on the Guatemala border.

Family members of the two Guatemalan victims told El Universal that the trucks had been driving through the town of Venustiano Carranza when men toting AK-47 rifles jumped out and "asked for money to be able to continue."

The Mexican traffickers moving the dozens of migrants who each paid $7,000 to $8,000 to be smuggled into Mexico and to the U.S. refused to cooperate, and the armed men began shooting at the back of the trucks where the migrants were sitting.

Anti-CNN Billboard Appears
Next To CNN's Hollywood Headquarters

(Hollywood Reporter) — A conservative group of street artists has labeled the cable channel run by Jeff Zucker the "Communist News Network."

A billboard that criticized CNN and its president, Jeff Zucker, over a perceived liberal bias sprang up Friday directly across the street from the news network's headquarters in Hollywood.

The billboard at the corner of Sunset and Cahuenga features Zucker's face and faux title, "CEO, CNNPC" and it refers to CNN as the "Communist News Network." The main message reads: "Keep Korea Divided."

Before Friday morning, the giant billboard was being used to advertise a marijuana dispensary, but it has been altered by a small band of conservative street artists who go by the name The Faction, and it is the third time in six weeks the group has attacked a TV channel owned by AT&T's WarnerMedia.

Apparently, A Fake PAC Is Soaking Up Trump Donations

(Hot Air/Jazz Shaw) — Robocalls are the worst, aren't they? I get them too often, and I even installed one of those spam blockers on my phone. That goes for political calls as well, as most of you from purple states or districts will likely agree. But there's been a particularly bad robocalling scheme going on lately, asking people to donate money to President Trump's 2020 reelection or to help fund the building of the border wall. But wait… you might actually want to help with those things so it's not so bad, right?

Not in this case. According to CNN's Andrew Kaczynski, these calls are coming from a shady operation that's claiming to be affiliated with the President, but in reality, have nothing to do with Trump 2020. And the guy in charge of it appears to be pocketing most of the money.

Calls like this one, said to number more than 200,000, have helped raise more than $100,000 in January alone, but that money isn't going to the Trump campaign, whose spokesperson told CNN they were not affiliated with the calls. See full story 
 Muslim Parents Withdraw Children Following
Forced LGBT Lessons In School

(Neon Nettle) — Around 600 Muslim children have been taken out of school by their parents after they were forced into lessons on homosexuality and gender equality.

Parents have kept their children at home from Parkfield Community School in Birmingham, UK, to protest the 'No Outsiders' programme, which teaches children as young as four about LGBT lifestyles.

Children removed from the school equate to 80 percent of the school's entire enrolment, meaning the school is now practically empty.

Pupils have been pulled out of the classroom because the school was 'undermining parental rights and aggressively promoting homosexuality,' The Alum Community Rock Forum told Birmingham Live.

Drug Company Announces
New Version Of Insulin At Half The Price

(The Hill) — The drug company Eli Lilly on Monday announced that it is introducing a cheaper version of its insulin that will sell at half the price, a decision aimed at tamping down the outcry over insulin prices.

The move comes in response to intense scrutiny of drug prices and particularly insulin, a decades-old drug that people with diabetes need that has seen huge price spikes in recent years.

"While this change is a step in the right direction, all of us in the health care community must do more to fix the problem of high out-of-pocket costs for Americans living with chronic conditions," Eli Lilly CEO David Ricks said in a statement.

 "We hope our announcement is a catalyst for positive change across the U.S. health care system."

Man Accused In Mollie Tibbetts' Slaying Wants Trial Moved To A County With 'Substantial' Latino Representation

(Des Moines Register) — The man charged in the killing of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts requested his trial be moved out of Poweshiek County and into a county with more minority representation in its jury pool.

Attorneys for Cristhian Bahena Rivera on Friday filed a motion for change of venue, arguing that existing prejudice in Poweshiek County makes it likely "a fair and impartial trial cannot be preserved with a jury selected from that county," according to court documents. Rivera's first-degree murder trial has been scheduled to begin Sept. 3 at Poweshiek County Courthouse in Montezuma.

Poweshiek County's connections to the case are plentiful: It's where Rivera worked and lived, where 20-year-old Tibbetts grew up, where she went missing while jogging in her hometown of Brooklyn in July, and where her body was discovered in a cornfield after more than a month-long search that drew national attention.

Critics Say Will Smith Isn't Black Enough To Play
Black Man In Upcoming Williams Sisters Film

(Daily Wire) -- Deadline reported Monday that actor Will Smith has been cast to play Serena and Venus Willams' father in a new biopic about the tennis stars, and some leftists are not happy about it.

Apparently, Smith, a black man, is not black enough to play Richard Willams.

Sports reporter Clarence Hill Jr., for example, was disappointed about the casting of Smith because "[c]olorism matters."

"Colorism [W]ill Smith but there are other black actors for this role," said Hill in a tweet posted Monday. The post has racked up well over 2,000 likes.

"Why is he always cast in roles portraying dark skin men like there aren't tons of black actors that would make more sense for the role?" asked another aggrieved Twitter user.

Judge Throws Out Defamation Lawsuit Against
Bill O'Reilly, Fox News: It Is 'Wholly Insufficient'

(Wash Examiner) — A federal judge in New York has thrown out a defamation lawsuit filed against former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly and the network.

U.S. District Court Judge Deborah Batts said Tuesday that former Fox producer Rachel Witlieb Bernstein's allegations of defamation against the host and network are "wholly insufficient," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Bernstein alleged in the lawsuit, filed in December 2018, that O'Reilly violated a settlement agreement that was reached when she accused the former TV host of sexual misconduct against her.

The agreement called on both sides not to disparage each other.
