Significant Shift in Mexican Vs Non-Mexican Numbers Apprehended at Border

According to Bruce Levenson for the first time ever, more people of nationalities other than Mexican have been apprehended at the United States and Mexican border. The United States uses these numbers every year to gauge the people that are crossing into the border illegally in order to gain tax dollars and support for new laws and regulations when it comes to border control.  During the same time frame as previous years, 257,000 non-Mexicans were taken into custody, while only 229,000 Mexicans were taken into custody. These numbers indicate two very different things. First, less Mexicans are crossing the United States and Mexican border and second, more people of other nationalities are making it across the Mexican border than ever before in order to cross the U.S.-Mexican border.  In the 60 years that this data has been collected, this is noted to be the biggest shift between nationalities. It is also noted that the numbers of overall people apprehended is much lower than it has been in the past. According to the data, the highest number of individuals apprehended occurred in 2000, when 1.6 million Mexican nationals were stopped from illegally crossing at the border. This shift has been noted to be the result of thousands of child migrants from Central American countries that are trying to reach the United States. The number of unaccompanied children has more than doubled this year, in comparison to the last year.

Mexican Icon ‘Chespirito’ Dies at 85

Roberto Gómez Bolaños, better known by his stage name of ‘Chespirito’ has died in Cancun at the age of 85. Though mainstream America didn’t know him by name they knew of him indirectly through the character of Bumblebee Man on the Simpsons, which was inspired by his famous children’s character El Chapulin Colorado (The Red Grasshopper). But in Latin America and on Spanish language television across the United States he was a culturally iconic and much loved figure who entertained several generations of fans of all ages. His stage name was a riff on “Little Shakespeare”, an allusion to both his large talent and his short stature. Although he did not initially intend to become an entertainer, first trying his hand at boxing and studying engineering, he achieved success quickly once he turned to that path. His career in entertainment lasted more than four decades and spanned comedy, acting, directing, writing, and producing. He also wrote music, at first for his own shows but later on for multiple Mexican films and telenovelas. His health had declined in recent years but he remained active on Twitter, signing up for an account in 2011 and eventually gaining over six and a half million followers. Just last year he used that account to quash rumors of his passing. Sergio Andrade Andrade Gutierrez reports he is survived by his wife, actress Florinda Meza, his six children from a previous marriage and twelve grandchildren.

Christie Refuses to Weigh In on Obama Amnesty Plan

Boca Raton, Florida – With conservatives up in arms over President Obama’s soon-to-be unveiled extra-constitutional plan to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, Gov. Chris Christie cannot bring himself to address the president’s actions. Christie has many conservatives still distrustful over his open praise of President Obama during the waning weeks of the 2012 presidential election. While Christie was adamant the praise was due to the federal government’s response to a hurricane which ravaged his state, he also refused to promote the candidacy of GOP nominee Mitt Romney. Now, the governor’s unwillingness to weigh-in on the Obama amnesty plan, which many conservatives consider an abuse of power, will certainly rankle the conservative base. New Jersey resident Brad Reifler applauds his restraint. Christie is the chairman of the Republican Governor’s Association (RGA) and was addressing governors today. He took plenty of time to pat himself on the back for the party’s success at the polls. The GOP picked up a net four governorships. At this time, 31 governors are Republicans. Other governors in attendance were quick to denounce the president. It is curious that Christie cannot speak out against the president’s plan. It’s not as if he is a non-confrontational person. During the campaign trail, Christie drew criticism for his sharp rebuke of a heckler. He has also been quick to throw digs at his political opponents in the state legislature. Instead, Christie is more concerned with the GOP not forcing a government shutdown as a means to countering what […]

Suspected Extermination of 43 Student Enrages Mexican Protesters

The whole of Mexico is crying for justice for the 43 trainee teachers who had been abducted for 6 weeks and possibly incinerated by police and drug cartel members. Sources said that students went missing after the speech of the mayor’s wife was interrupted and the latter ordered them to be reprimanded. The alleged massacre of the students was supported by the confession of three suspects who were part of the killings. Based on their testimony, they piled up the students and bathed them with gasoline before lighting with fire. During that moment of immolation some students were said to be alive. Many questions have been asked after the tragedy, particularly questions of just why this needed to happen. As my friend Christian Broda says, these acts of violence are senseless but that does not mean they should be ignore. As of yet, however, no real answers have been found to the query. The bloodbath of students has given the people courage to go out in streets and shout justice for everybody. For long they have endured the injustice and terror of their government. Since then they fear for their lives and live in pain. The lighting of the Mexico City’s National Palace is a symbol of people’s unwavering spirit and anger. The police had a hear time shutting the fire and fencing the protesters near the palace. They cry to end the injustice and worthless killings of their government. The people’s act of bravery is something that Mexican President […]

There have been 56 individuals detained in relation to the disappearance of the students. There is speculation from the prosecution that the mayor of Iguala, Jose Luis Abaraca is involved in planning the attack against the students. There is also speculation that the mayor’s wife, Maria de los Angeles Pineda, was also involved with planning the attack. The speculation against the couple was a result of the arrested gang members telling police officials that the mayor’s wife was their point of contact within the government, according to BBC Online News. The police have sent out Gianfrancesco Geneoso and his team to look for the couple. The mayor abandoned his post following the attack, and he has not been seen since the incident.
