— Woman with 2-month-old baby at US–Mexico border.

— Border agents send them for DNA testing.

— Baby keeps showing two strains of DNA.

— Mother was spitting into baby's mouth so test would read her DNA, and they could be released as a family unit.

Apologies - should be: "Mother" was spitting into baby's mouth so test would read her DNA, and they could be released as a family unit.

“This is ground zero in the battle against illegal alien sanctuary," says @michellemalkin at a rally against Montgomery County’s #sanctuary policies that have contributed to 8 rapes by illegal aliens in recent weeks.

Just watched 2 groups of Africans from Congo and Angola cross illegally into Mexico from Guatemala across the Suchiate River on tube rafts. 8 men, 4 woman, 6 kids.
One guy from Angola said he took a boat to Colombia (10 days), walked through jungle for 10 days, and has spent 2 months getting this far (to Mexico).

Angolan woman said she flew to Panama first. She has a 2yo with her.
Mexico's Foreign Minister said the 6k troop deployment was complete for the Mexico-Guatamala border, but none have shown up at this busy crossing in southeast Mexico.

VIDEO THREAD: Behind the Push for Open Borders

1/5—"This is an orchestrated, communist assault on America to destroy America's borders, to create confusion in America, to overwhelm the system politically." @newzealblog
2/5—How would border security look under a Democrat president in 2020?

"You would see the end of America as we know it because we would get so many million people coming over. They would be given citizenship & voting rights & they would vote for the party that let them in."
3/5—Impact of illegal aliens and non-citizens voting

"[If] you have a monopoly on power, you become corrupt. And everybody in this country should be terrified of that prospect." @newzealblog

VIDEO THREAD: Smuggling and Stash Houses on the Border

1/3 "The smugglers will transport people that aren't turning themselves into #BorderPatrol. They sometimes stash hundreds of people in square footage that's really equipped for about four or five people." — @CBPSouthTexas
2/3 "That was one of the most horrific structures I've seen since I've been doing this job, and I've been doing border security and enforcement for over 24 years." @ICEgov
3/3 "There's a lot of money in smuggling humans. It could cost anywhere, per head, on a per alien basis, as low as $1,500 to as high as $15,000." — @SheriffGuerra

Out with #BorderPatrol in Mission, Texas, and just caught 7 Chinese, 1 Mexican, and 1 El Salvadoran minor. All trying to evade capture. Chinese man said he paid $15k for the whole package (flights to Mexico, smuggled across border)
Only one of the Chinese people would speak to us. Thank you to our colleague who translated by phone! out with #BorderPatrol in McAllen, Texas.
The Chinese man said he plans to claim asylum from persecution, but couldn’t say why he didn’t just fly straight into the United States and do that. He said a friend in Beijing put him in contact with a smuggler. #borderpatrol Mission, Texas. @rgv3307

THREAD:
1/ Just been at Greyhound bus stop in Yuma to talk to some migrants. There were about 18 waiting for the next bus to Phoenix. Mix of male, female, children.
2/ One woman, from Honduras, said she came with her husband and 14-year-old. They crossed illegally from Mexicali, Mexico, into Calexico, California, on April 9.
3/ As we were talking to her, asking why she left Honduras (she said “crime”), two people who identified themselves as volunteers for the Salvation Army told us not to speak to any migrants.

Only 15% of those coming in have valid asylum claims."

— Mark Morgan, Obama’s Border Patrol chief #BorderSecurity
"Under current estimates, we’re going to let in 650k illegal immigrants that will stay indefinitely."
