The increasing costs of rescuing illegal immigrants in Brooks County, south of Corpus Christi, and the costs of picking up the bodies of the immigrants who don’t make it, is coming close to bankrupting the small county, 1200 WOAI news reports.

Brooks County has been at Ground Zero of the immigration wars for decades.  Because of the existence of the Border Patrol checkpoint on Highway 281 in Falfurrias, many immigrant smugglers haul their human cargo as far north as just south of the checkpoint and then kick them out into the unforgiving Brush Country, telling them in many cases that Houston and San Antonio are ‘just a few hours walk’ away.  Many of the immigrants don’t have food and water, and they get lost in the featureless terrain or die of heat stroke in temperatures that can reach 110 degrees.

Despite the fact that the federal government consistently goes to court to assert its right to manage immigration affairs, shooting down efforts by border states to involve themselves in immigration issues, Washington DC provides no money to Brooks County, population 7100, to deal with the job of rounding up immigrants in distress and, more frequently, collecting the bodies of the dead.

The Brooks County Sheriff’s Department this week is dropping health insurance coverage for its deputies.  The Deputies have repeatedly taken pay cuts to deal with the county’s financial problems, which are entirely caused by immigration.

Obama has arrived in Japan at the start of his latest Asia trip and was greeted by a familiar face: American Ambassador Caroline Kennedy.

Mrs Kennedy stood alongside her husband Edwin Schlossberg, who still lives in New York in spite of his wife’s diplomatic posting in Tokyo but he flew over for the presidential visit.

Rather than going straight for a formal welcome reception at a government building, the group headed to an iconic landmark of another sort.

Obama and his dining partner, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, didn’t to have trouble scoring seats at Sukiyabashi Jiro.

Squatters Fatima Cardoso and Julio Ortiz

NEW PORT RICHEY, FL (WFLA) – When soldier Michael Sharkey was deployed to Afghanistan two years ago, he asked a friend to watch over his New Port Richey house. Sharkey and his wife are now living in Hawaii where he is currently stationed. They plan to move back into their New Port Richey home someday. But, right now they are fighting to get their house back.

They say strangers broke in, changed the locks, moved in and they refuse to leave.

“I want the people out,” said Sharkey. “They’re criminals living in my house.”

Sharkey was shocked to find out that the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office says it can’t do anything about the squatters.

Here’s where it gets complicated.

Somalis are notorious for lying and pulling shit and I just think that there is more to this story. I smell a scam.

I don’t believe this teen was ever in the wheel-well of the plane.  No one saw him exit the wheel-well either. Could he have stowed in the plane’s cargo hold? Sure. Pets are transported in these cargo holds along with passenger luggage.  Such a hold is pressurized and heated.  Easily survivable.  Anyway, certainly more leg room than Coach…

Looking at the picture of the teen on the stretcher, he looks pretty darn clean for someone who allegedly stowed away in a dirty, greasy wheel-well and miraculously survived without losing his limbs from frostbite or his heartbeat from lack of oxygen.

I think a complicit departure airport worker helped him hide in the cargo hold… and that’s how he survived unscathed.

Either this teen wanted a free ride home to Somalia… or he wants relatives in Somalia brought to the U.S.  Out of public sympathy for his story and on our dime.

Regardless of his intentions…

Very soon, thanks to do-gooders, the media, and bleeding hearts, this kid and his family stand to benefit.  They’ll have their bank accounts filled, their public assistance paper work expedited, immigration paper work bent, and potential book or interview deals offered. Offers of private and public assistance will accrue. With no criminal charges filed, the gravy train will open its doors wide.

Jorge Avila Torrez

Jurors who will decide whether Jorge Torrez should be executed for killing a sailor in 2009 will hear more evidence Wednesday tying him to the stabbing deaths of two young girls in Zion in 2005, brutal killings that were followed by a troubled investigation.

Torrez, 25, who was a Marine when he strangled the sailor in her barracks near the Pentagon, is a “calculating, methodical sexual predator,” prosecutors say.

For most of her life, Jessie Nunez has lived in the shadows.

She was 7 when her mother brought her to the U.S. from Mexico. Like hundreds of thousands of other undocumented youth, she feared deportation, so she kept to herself.

Without legal residency, her options narrowed as she aged. She is now 24.

Needing money, she used a fake Social Security number to get a job. Needing to get to the job, she drove without a valid driver’s license.

As more and more news goes online, and various bloggers, tweeters and other non-traditional news outlets gain momentum, a once-obvious line has become blurred, said Ron Bersin, executive director of the Oregon Government Ethics Commission. Read More

In the latest of many Obamacare boondoggles, one state’s disastrous health insurance exchange is being abandoned after receiving more than $90 million from American taxpayers, who are also being forced to fund a replacement program that will cost tens of millions of dollars.

It’s an inconceivable fleecing by our own government, hell bent on shoving the president’s hostile takeover of the nation’s healthcare system down our collective throats.
