(Reuters) – A six-year-old girl from India died of heat stroke in an Arizona desert after her mother left her with other migrants to go in search of water, a medical examiner and U.S. Border Patrol said on Friday.
The girl, Gurupreet Kaur, soon to celebrate her seventh birthday, was found by U.S. Border Patrol west of Lukeville, Arizona on Wednesday, when temperatures reached a high of 108 degrees Fahrenheit (42 Celsius), U.S. Border Patrol and the Pima County Office of the Medical Examiner (PCOME) said.
The girl’s death, the second recorded fatality of a migrant child this year in Arizona’s southern deserts, highlighted the danger of summer heat as a surge of migrant families, mainly from Central America, cross the U.S.-Mexico border to seek asylum.

(Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration to divert more than $6 billion to build a wall on the border with Mexico faced its first court test on Friday, as a lawyer for the House of Representatives said Congress never approved the funding.
The hearing opened with Douglas Letter, on behalf of the House, telling U.S. District Court Judge Haywood Gilliam in Oakland, California, Trump does not have authority to use the money for a border wall.
“As everyone knows the executive branch cannot build this wall without Congress,” Letter said. “The president asked for $8.1 billion to build the wall and Congress said no to that. This money was clearly denied by Congress under immense pressure.”
Border Patrol Apprehension Numbers Off the Charts
National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd expressed his disgust with mainstream media and leftists who bash border enforcement agents while idealizing illegal aliens.
Judd slammed the double-standard being applied by the globalist press during an interview on Fox and Friends on Thursday.
“It’s so frustrating and disappointing to see that border patrol agents are vilified for strictly enforcing the laws that Congress put in place,” Judd said. “We’re trying to protect the American public. Yet, they romanticize those people crossing the border illegally and vilify the good guys that are trying to do the job for the American public.”
Judd also addressed the on-going migrant crisis at the U.S. southern border, asserting that the system is totally overwhelmed as hundreds of thousands of migrants pour into the country.
The crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border has gotten so bad that smugglers are bragging to the media about how much money they are making by sneaking illegal aliens into America.
While speaking with The Guardian, Germán, a client recruiter for human smugglers in Guatemala, boasted about how he has been making tens of thousands of dollars by smuggling illegal aliens into the U.S.
“It’s never been easier for us to get families in,” Germán said. “People want to leave, and we help them. And I happen to make money in the process.”
the American Mirror
In response to the charge that he advocated open borders, 2020 presidential candidate Bernie Sanders said social programs could not be funded if America was overwhelmed with immigrants.
The Vermont Senator was responding to a question from a member of the crowd at a campaign event in Oskaloosa, IA.
“If you open the borders, there’s a lot of poverty in this world, and you’re going to have people from all over the world,” said Sanders. “And I don’t think that’s something that we can do at this point. Can’t do it.”
It’s a shame we don’t see similar honesty from many others on the left, who simultaneously hold the contradictory positions of advocating a huge welfare state while inviting in the entirety of the third world.
On New Day Saturday, CNN co-hosts Victor Blackwell and Christi Paul provided an unchallenged forum to an anti-deportation activist who recently went viral in a video showing him refusing to cooperate with ICE agents who were trying to arrest two illegal immigrants who were inside his car.
Blackwell and Paul are the same CNN weekend duo who last year infamously used their show to defend an illegal immigrant who was arrested by ICE and deported to Mexico without ever informing viewers that he was wanted for committing a homicide in his home country.
Apparently picking up on an article and video posted by the Washington Post, the segment began at 7:29 a.m. Eastern with footage of sanctuary activist Bryan MacCormack in his car arguing with ICE agents about whether their warrant gave them legal authority to force him to open his door to arrest his passengers as he insisted that the warrant had to be signed by a judge.
In all but one of the last seven presidential elections, Republicans lost the popular vote. George W. Bush and Donald Trump won only by capturing narrow majorities in the Electoral College.
Hence the grand strategy of the left: to enlarge and alter the U.S. electorate so as to put victory as far out of reach for national Republicans as it is today for California Republicans, and to convert the GOP into America’s permanent minority party.
In the Golden State, Democrats control the governors’ chair, every elective state office, both U.S. Senate seats, 46 of 53 U.S. House seats and three-fourths of each house of the state legislature in Sacramento.
When Jordan Peele’s directorial debut Get Out hit screens in 2017, it was a revelation. Peele was known as an incisive comedian from his racially frank, wide-ranging sketch show Key and Peele, but nothing in his history suggested he had such a talent for crafting mesmerizing horror stories. Get Out is a startling, frightening film, but it’s also meticulously crafted to make the audience politically and socially uncomfortable, with a candid, unflinching message about how black and white Americans interact, and an allegorical underpinning designed to make viewers of any race squirm with discomfort — while still laughing at the ironic humor in Peele’s script.
Peele has been hugely in demand ever since — he’s been tied to a vast slate of films and TV shows, including producing the Tracy Morgan comedy The Last O.G., the YouTube series Weird City, and the fast-approaching Twilight Zone reboot. But the new feature film Us is his first solo writing-directing project since Get Out. And it’s being met with vocal anticipation and nervous hope, as his fans wonder whether Get Out was an unrepeatable one-off flash of genius, or just the first salvo in a long line of memorable movies to come. Us suggests that both of those things might be true — the new movie isn’t as unconventional as Get Out, or crafted with the same kind of watchmaker’s attention to how every tiny gear fits together. But it’s striking and unsettling, the kind of horror movie designed to make audiences walk away feeling leery about ordinary things around them, from shadows at night to mirrors to rabbits to scissors.
21 Savage — the rapper who was detained, and could reportedly be deported back to the U.K., by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents on Sunday — has a new supporter in his corner: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Hours after announcing that she’ll be bringing Ana Maria Archila, the woman who famously confronted then-Sen. Jeff Flake in an elevator during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings last fall, to Tuesday’s State of the Union, the freshman congresswoman tweeted out lyrics in a gesture of support for the British-born performer. The rapper’s arrest for overstaying his visa has outraged his fans — including Cardi B, who clashed with conservative commentator Tomi Lahren over the ordeal — and prompted calls to “eliminate” ICE.
Ocasio-Cortez, a vocal critic of ICE, cited 21 Savage’s own lyrics, which reference being “stuck at the border” and needing a lawyer.
German society is destabilizing as migrants and jihadists pour in through open borders, warns police officer and politician Martin Hess.
Hess, who serves in the Bundestag as a member of the Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, eviscerated his colleagues from establishment parties during a recent speech on the floor of parliament, accusing them of abdicated their duties to protect citizens and secure the nation’s borders.
“The threat of terrorism is higher than ever before, and therefore we must act now to implement measures to protect our citizens,” Hess said. “Enough talk. Now is the time for action, and this requires that the main problem be solved, which is responsible for the disasters in the area of internal security: our open borders.”
