Almost 600 illegal immigrants and asylum seekers were dropped off at an El Paso bus station by Immigration and Customs Enforcement without any plans to detain or house them, according to a spokesman with the El Paso Police Department.
ICE justified the questionable move to release hundreds of previously detained illegal immigrants onto the streets by releasing a statement explaining that the agency was complying with a court order to release the migrants from custody within 20 days. Approximately 400 of the migrants had been released the day before Christmas Eve, with a further 186 being dropped off at a bus station on Christmas Day.
Democratic Congressman Robert ‘Beto’ O’Rourke of El Paso said that he had been told a further 500+ migrants were set to be released in the community on Wednesday.
Local law enforcement and municipal officials appear to have been given little to no advance notice about a sizable population of foreign nationals being released in the City of El Paso, some of whom may represent a criminal threat. Individuals linked to street gangs such as the MS13 gang and serious hardened criminal organizations such as the Sinaloas and Los Zetas drug cartels have been detected embedded with populations of illegal migrants arriving in the United States from Mexico and Central America.
Now that the illegal migrants have been released, it is likely that a significant percentage of the group will refuse to appear in court for immigration proceedings. They’ll likely either fade out of sight into the 12-million strong and growing population of illegals residing in the United States, or become subject to complicated and at times dangerous attempts to apprehend and deport them.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump is fighting to secure the Southern border. Patrick Howley reported for Big League Politics:
President Donald Trump is in a good position on this fifth day of the government shutdown, with his base strongly supporting him.
The “who should get blamed for the shutdown?” narrative pushed by the press does not really apply here, because Trump’s real supporters — who exist in America, not on Fox News — largely think the shutdown is a good message. But it’s not just intended to be a message, it is intended to be a tactic to get us the border Wall funding. Nobody cares about the plight of temporarily unpaid “non-essential” government workers when our borders are being erased for the convenience of MS-13 and to the embarrassment of our country on the world stage.
Trump and his chief of staff Mick Mulvaney — whose first week on the job also happened to be Trump’s Best Week Ever — lowered their demand from $5 billion in an olive branch to the Democrats, who rejected it. With no deal, there is no reason for Trump to drop below $5 billion again. If anything, he should hold the line, because every day this goes on is another day Trump reminds his base that he is finally in a position to fight for is what is Right.
Here is President Trump’s Christmas press conference in which he declared that there must be a Wall if the Democrats want to see their beloved government open again.
Illegal Alien Arrested in the Beating, Torture, and Death of His Nine Year Old Son in Idaho
Erik Osuna is an illegal immigrant.
A man identified by prosecutors as an illegal alien has been arrested in the beating and torture of his own son, with the boy’s stepmother being charged with murder in his death.
Emrik Osuna, a nine year old boy, was discovered starved and covered with bruises at the residence of Erik Osuna-Gutierrez and Monique Osuna. First responders who were summoned to the Meridian, Idaho home later pronounced the boy dead.

Police reports indicate that Monique Osuna has admitted to police that she kicked her stepson in the groin and beat him with various household objects, among them a frying pan, a wooden spoon, a backscratcher, a belt, and even a dog leash. She’s being charged with murder, and Erik Osuna is being charged with felony injury to a child, infliction of great bodily harm and destruction of evidence in the abuse of the child.
The couple allegedly subjected the nine year old boy to a sickening regimen of continual child abuse, such as forcing him to exercise for hours, locking him into a closet, and feeding him starvation rations of water and rice for weeks. Prosecutors are alleging that Erik Osuna allowed the abuse to happen, and that the sick couple only called 911 hours after Emrik Osuna was in severe medical distress.
Idaho prosecutors have identified Erik Osuna as an illegal immigrant, pointing him out as a flight risk in pre-trial bond hearings in the case. They urged a judge to deny Osuna a bond because of his status as an illegal, arguing that he could attempt to flee because he doesn’t have many personal connections in the state.
Both Osunas are being held on $2 million bonds in the Idaho jail system, and neither have entered a plea in response to the charges. Their next court appearance is scheduled for September 17th.
