Obama administration breaks record for most Mexicans deported in US history

posted by

PanAm Post PanAm Post    

"During Barack Obama’s two terms as President of the United States, 2.8 million Mexicans were deported, according to official figures from the National Institute of Migration (INM), which is the highest in the country’s history. It’s no surprise why Latino organizations have come to call the Democrat 'Deporter in Chief'. Many of the Mexicans that were forced to leave the country were separated from their families, and were often children." (12/08/16)

"A main gathering place for Venezuela's growing bitcoin community is a secret Facebook group started in 2013 by a young libertarian activist named Randy Brito. As I recounted in a feature story in the current issue of Reason magazine, 'The Secret, Dangerous World of Venezuelan Bitcoin Mining,' the 'Bitcoin Venezuela' Facebook group 'serves as an online bazaar featuring ads for cars, bikes, boats, liquor, protein supplements, soap, smartphones, hiking boots, athletic gear, video games, and toilet paper.' I'm yet to see a single post about politics, economics, or the horrors of living under socialism." (12/08/16)

Trump: No need for full wall between Mexico and US due to “mountains” and “vicious rivers”

The Independent [UK]    

"Donald Trump has said parts of the wall he pledged to build along the border between Mexico and the US will not be needed due to 'mountains' and 'vicious rivers' in some areas. 'Now, there are certain places you don’t need a wall, because you have, you know, you have mountains, you have other things. You have large and rather vicious rivers,' the President-elect said in an interview with Fox News in Cincinnati, Ohio during his so-called 'Thank You' tour. Mr Trump failed to specify where these natural obstacles are located, but insisted this was not a u-turn on the pledge, which became a key part of his White House campaign." (12/03/16)

NM: Cops get off scot free despite shattering handcuffed man’s face, cracking his skull on video

The Free Thought Project    

"Two Las Cruces cops were caught on video, severely beating a handcuffed man, and they will face no consequences for their crimes. The victim, Ross Flynn was in jail for being accused of pulling a gun on his neighbor -- a crime of which later he'd be found not guilty. Flynn was beaten so badly that he suffered several broken facial bones and a cracked skull. When video of this incident surfaced, the officers weren't immediately fired. It took an 'investigation' lasting over 5-months before they were relieved of duty." (12/01/16)
