U.S. Citizens Say They Were Detained By Border Patrol Agent For ‘Speaking Spanish’

Two U.S. citizens said they were detained last week by a Border Patrol agent in Montana after he overheard them speaking Spanish to each other in a convenience store. 

Ana Suda and Mimi Hernandez said they’d popped into the store in Havre, a small town near the border with Canada, early Wednesday morning when they were approached by a uniformed Border Patrol agent, KRTV reported.

The two women, who are Mexican American, had been chatting in Spanish while waiting in line to pay for eggs and milk when ― to their incredulity ― the agent asked them for their IDs.

“I looked at him like, ‘Are you serious?’ He’s like, ‘Yeah, very serious.’” Suda, who was born in Texas, told The Washington Post of the encounter.  

Outside, in the parking lot, Suda began filming the agent on her phone. She asked him why he’d been compelled to detain them. He told her that their use of Spanish had caught his attention.

“Ma’am, the reason I asked you for your ID is because I came in here, and I saw that you guys are speaking Spanish, which is very unheard of up here,” the agent can be heard saying in the cellphone footage. 

He then denied that the women had been racially profiled.

“It has nothing to do with that,” the agent said in the clip. “It’s the fact that it has to do with you guys speaking Spanish in the store ― in a state where it’s predominantly English-speaking.”

Suda told MTN News that even after seeing their IDs, the agent did not let them leave the parking lot for about 35 minutes. She said her husband, a former probation officer with the Montana Department of Corrections, criticized the agent for overstepping the limits of his position. 

“He thinks it is very bad what this guy was doing because he does not have the right to do it,” Suda told the outlet. 

A spokesman for U.S. Customs and Border Protection told HuffPost on Monday that the agency was reviewing the incident to ensure “all appropriate policies were followed.”

“U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents and officers are committed to treating everyone with professionalism, dignity and respect while enforcing the laws of the United States,” the rep said in a statement. “Although most Border Patrol work is conducted in the immediate border area, agents have broad law enforcement authorities and are not limited to a specific geography within the United States. They have the authority to question individuals, make arrests, and take and consider evidence.”

According to the CBP website, the Havre Border Patrol Sector, headquartered in Havre, is “responsible for 456 miles of border area between Montana and Canada, Wyoming, Colorado and Utah, as well as, part of Idaho.” 

Suda, who plans to take legal action over the incident, said she and Hernandez were deeply shaken by the encounter and remained in shock.

“My family was asking me, because my family is still in Texas, and they were asking me, how is Montana about this? I said I have never had a problem before,” she told MTN News. “I say Montana is perfect. I love the people here, the people are so nice. It is nicer than other states. I cannot believe this happened.”

She said she was especially alarmed by her 7-year-old daughter’s reaction to the incident. 

“When she saw the video, she was like, ‘Mom, we can’t speak Spanish anymore?’” Suda told the Post. “I said ‘No. You be proud. You are smart. You speak two languages.’ This is more for her.”

People on social media have reacted with horror to Suda’s video and story.

“Since when is speaking a foreign language criminally suspect?” asked one Twitter user on Sunday.

This story has been updated with comments from U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

Is the Border Wall Really Designed to Keep Americans In?

 

 

When I was a kid, we used to joke that the Soviets built walls to keep people in. Many of us are no longer joking. As the Deep State tightens their noose around the country, we need to ask ourselves a question: Is the border wall designed to keep migrants out, or US citizens in?


The term “predictive programming”, is used to refer to the conditioning of the masses to accept a bleak future planned by the globalists.

We know from former CNN reporters, like Amber Lyon, that the CIA pays CNN to run certain stories while buring others in an attempt to create an artificial reality. American television is dominated with globalist themes designed to desensitize America to a new and emerging reality. This practice of theme-based propaganda permeateds Hollywood.

Predictive programming, is originally a Nazi-based propaganda technique in which the Germans were conditioning an unsuspecting public, at their movie houses, in their movie themes and newsreels, to “hate the Jews” and to accept the inevitable World War II that Hitler would start.

Today this method of mass mind control, proposes that people are conditioned, through works of fiction, to accept planned future scenarios which have dramatic social, political and economic implications. There is usually a desensitization strategy based on the notion that the more on sees the theme, in entertainment, the more likely people will accept this new reality in real life. This is classic BF Skinner operant conditioning.  Alan Watt defines this practice as “the power of suggestion using the media of fiction to create a desired outcome”.

Colony

There is a show presently on TV that I believe shows us our collective futures as predicted by former Weatherman Underground convicted felon, Bill Ayers who launched Obama’s political career as he told FBI informant Larry Grathwohl that 50 million Americans would die in FEMA camps.  The parallel between this show’s plot and its similarities between the martial law and continuity of government documents is stunning. And in my bones, I feel that this production is much more than just another TV show.

In a dystopian, not too distant future LA, in the first 2 seasons of the show, a couple, Katie and Will Bowman live with two of their three children under a military/martial law regime which is the most brutal martial law military occupation  by an organization known as the Colony Transitional Authority. This is martial law on steroids and enforced with extremely advanced technology.

As one can see from picture, the “Wall” is designed to keep people in. Is this what lies in our future?

What would make people want to flee the United States? The answers are contained in the show’s themes.

No Alien Invasion

An ET force called the  “Hosts”, successfully invaded the Earth. The ET’s are NOT part of the show and should not even be in the story line for all intents and purposes. The show focuses on human collaborating forces of enslavement. It is said of them that “no one ever sees them (ET’s)”. The Hosts have built an enormous wall, around 30 stories tall, several meters thick, and many miles in length, which surrounds the central part of Los Angeles, where the series is set.

colony-1No travel is permitted between the regions of the world, called blocs, and this is one of themes of any martial law regime, real or of Hollywood origin. Other similar walls have been constructed around other major cities, which are also called “Blocs”, while various buildings still display severe damage from the armed conflict during the invasion, known as the “Arrival”.

The geographical extent of the alien invasion is unclear, but it is presumably worldwide. The occupying forces shown to the viewers are all human and enforce their occupation via black-and-red-uniformed militarized police, nicknamed the “Redhats” and they are armed with automatic weapons and travel in DHS style armored personnel carriers.

Homeland Security

colony-3These Redhats, along with a privileged class of elites, called the “Proxies”, were all drawn by the Hosts from the local population, and are thus denigrated by some of those they control as “Collaborators”. It is unclear how the Redhats were initially organized or equipped. They may be staffed by members of what was the Department of Homeland Security.

The Ultimate In Martial Law

The variables, which are a part of the show and make up the nature of the extreme martial law that we see in the show:

1-No travel between regions.

2- Family members of the resistance are executed.

3-Random Checkpoints and frequent electronic identity check.

4-No cars- citizens must walk or ride bikes.

5- Slave Labor Camps.

6-Propaganda centers.

7-Selective eugencis-most medical conditions (eg diabetes) are not deemed worthy of treatment by the hosts and people waste away as they often die very agonizing deaths.

8-Host provided drones brutally enforce laws and execution is administered for minor infractions.

9-Forced disappearances.

10-Diet and calorie restrictions are enforced-coffee and liquor are extremely rare among the general population.

11-No internet or cells phones are allowed as they could be used to start a revolution. (A Millennial nighmare)

12-Extreme electronic surveillance.

13-In season 2, it was revealed that each bloc is not a slave labor colony, but eventually all humans will be made extinct (ie depopulation).

The series begins less than a year after the beginning of the Occupation. Life is a living hell. The implied, but never overtly stated is that “resistance is futile” and always fatal to those who resist as well as to their family members.

Underlying and symbolic of the martial law themes of the show, the wall stands as the means of enslavement and is symbolic of extreme tryannical government. Those of you that thought that the wall is a good idea, may want to rethink that proposition.

Given the current political climate, it is a legitimate question to ask, is the border wall going to be used to keep Americans from escaping?

Hundreds In Israel And Beyond Protest Killings Of Palestinians On Gaza Border

Hundreds took to the streets in Tel Aviv, Israel, and other cities worldwide this week to protest the Israeli military killing dozens of Palestinians demonstrating on the Gaza border. 

On Tuesday, hundreds of people in Tel Aviv marched and blocked traffic after Israeli forces fired on largely unarmed Palestinian protesters in Gaza on Monday, killing around 60 people and injuring hundreds more.

Dozens more people have protested around the world early this week, including in the United States, the United Kingdom, BelgiumCanada and South Africa.

“People, you could see, were deeply angry with the current situation,” Alon-Lee Green, national director of the Israeli activist group Standing Together, which organized the protests in Tel Aviv, told HuffPost late on Tuesday. More than 600 protesters blocked roads in the city center for over two hours, he said.  

“Yesterday in Israel all day, the TV news just showed a split screen: Half of it was from the shootings in Gaza, and the number of casualties was increasing by the minute. And then in the other half was [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu and Ivanka Trump, literally drinking champagne in the U.S. Embassy opening,” Green added. “It was surreal and frustrating.”

On Monday, first daughter and presidential adviser Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner commemorated the official relocation of the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem ― a controversial decision her father, U.S. President Donald Trump, made in December.

As thousands of Palestinians protested on the Gaza border 40 miles away, Israeli forces opened fire, killing dozens of protesters, including many young people. As the protests continued on Tuesday, the Israeli military killed at least two more Palestinians.

The Gaza protests were part of “The Great March of Return” ― weeks of demonstrations running from late March until the annual Nakba Day on May 15, which commemorates the displacement of Palestinians when the state of Israel was created in 1948.

Since the protests began, Israeli forces have killed more than 100 Palestinians, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry, sparking international outrage, particularly over the deaths of unarmed protesters and journalists.

International leaders condemned the deadly violence in Gaza this week, with more than a dozen members of the U.N. Security Council denouncing Israel’s “excessive use of force against unarmed civilians” on Tuesday.

The Israeli military said Monday in a statement that some protesters “hurled firebombs and explosive devices at the security fence and Israeli troops.” Israel has also said that it was defending its border against the militant group Hamas, which controls Gaza and which the U.S. considers a terrorist group, saying Hamas has attempted attacks during the protests.

On Monday, the White House also blamed Hamas, with spokesman Raj Shah saying “the responsibility for these tragic deaths rests squarely with Hamas.”  

A handful of U.S. lawmakers nonetheless condemned the violence, including Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) who noted the “staggering toll” of the dead. 

“Hamas violence does not justify Israel firing on unarmed protesters,” Sanders said.

Some of the protests this week in cities like Washington, D.C. and Cape Town, South Africa, had initially been planned over the controversial relocation of the U.S. Embassy or to mark the 70th anniversary of Nakba on Tuesday. But in the wake of Monday’s deadly violence, they morphed into demonstrations against Israel’s excessive use of force.

At a protest on Monday in the U.S. capital that was organized by the Jewish left-wing activist group If Not Now, about 150 people blocked the street near the Trump International Hotel. The group had organized the action weeks ago to respond to the embassy move, but the protest took on a different tone as demonstrators learned of the mounting death toll in Gaza, which was “really horrific,” an organizer said.

“As American Jews, we see Netanyahu saying he speaks for all Jews, and we’re saying that’s not true,” volunteer organizer Sarah Brammer-Shlay told HuffPost on Tuesday, saying actions in Israel were “pushed by our government.”

“This can’t be a community that supports violence and occupation,” she said.

The Future of Border Security: Lie-Detecting Computer Kiosks Equipped with Artificial Intelligence






The Future of Border Security: Lie-Detecting Computer Kiosks Equipped with Artificial Intelligence


May 15th, 2018

Magic 8-Ball says, “Orange jumpsuit for you.”

Via: CNBC:

International travelers could find themselves in the near future talking to a lie-detecting kiosk when they’re going through customs at an airport or border crossing. The same technology could be used to provide initial screening of refugees and asylum seekers at busy border crossings.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security funded development of the virtual border agent technology known as the Automated Virtual Agent for Truth Assessments in Real-Time, or AVATAR, about six years ago and pilot tested it at the U.S.-Mexico border on travelers deemed a low risk. Since then, Canada and the European Union tested the robot-like kiosk that uses a virtual agent to ask travelers a series of questions.

“The technology has much broader applications potentially,” despite most of the funding for the original work coming primarily from the Defense or Homeland Security departments a decade ago, according to Aaron Elkins, one of the developers of the system and an assistant professor at the San Diego State University director of its Artificial Intelligence Lab. He added that AVATAR is not a commercial product yet but could be also used in human resources for screening.

Israel shuts down Gaza border crossing damaged by Palestinian protesters

Tel Aviv has closed the Kerem Shalom crossing at the Gaza-Israeli border after it was damaged during the recent wave of Great March of Return protests. “The crossing will remain closed until the damage caused by the riots are repaired and will reopen in accordance with a situation assessment,” the Israel Defense Forces said on Twitter, adding that Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman approved “the recommendation to close the crossing.” On Friday, Palestinian protesters started fires on the Palestinian side of the crossing, damaging gas pipelines leading to the enclave, the IDF said. The Kerem Shalom crossing is used by trucks carrying goods and food supplies between Israel and Gaza.

US-Mexico Border Invaders “Back to Obama-Levels” with 230% Increase



 


The number of nonwhite invaders seeking to force their way into America to parasite off the white-created society is back to Obama-era levels with a 23o percent in April 2018 compared to April 2017—and more than 159 fakers from the “migrant caravan” have now applied for “asylum” from their self-created disaster zones in Central America.

According to statistics released by the US Customs and Border Protection, 38,234 nonwhites were apprehended trying to break their way into America in April over the Southwest Border.

At the same time, CBP Officers arrested a further 12,690 more would-be invaders who tried to come through the official ports of entry without permission.

In April 2017, CBP officers arrested 11,112 nonwhites trying to break through the border, and arrested 4,646 others at crossing points.

So far this year, CBP officers have arrested 128,257 nonwhites trying to break through the Southwest border crossing, the CBP figures also showed.

As a report in the Washington Post pointed out, these figures mean that the total number of invaders are “back to where they were during the Obama era.”

The newspaper quoted Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, which represents border agents, as saying that the reason for the upsurge is a realization among the invaders that the still “de facto “catch-and-release” policy” which means that most of the invaders are “quickly put back out on the streets, with the hope that they’ll return to be deported later.”

“Perhaps 75 percent of all migrants caught by Border Patrol agents are given catch and release,” Judd said, adding that “knowing they’ll be released rather than quickly deported has served as an enticement for more illegal immigrants to make the journey.”

“The reason is obvious: If you can cross the border illegally without any consequence, why not? As long as the catch-and-release policy-program exists, large numbers of people are going to cross the border illegally,” Judd continued.

“In 2017 and due to the rhetoric we had fewer apprehensions than any year in the past 45 years. It was simply because people believed that if they crossed the border illegally they would be held until their deportation hearing,” he added.
