    HIDALGO, TX - The Department of Homeland Security is allocating more resources to the border including more officers and barriers. This comes as the U.S. Border Patrol reports a rise in illegal crossings in the last few months.

    Covering the front yard with Christmas decorations has become a tradition every December at Hector Prado’s home. Prado lives in a quaint community where many other residents also display their Christmas props and lights.

    It’s hard to imagine the neighborhood as a place immigrants use to hide after crossing the border illegally. Prado’s home is located just two miles north of the Texas-Mexico border.

    “There are other people who come and pick [immigrants] up,” Prado said in Spanish.

    Prado believes that he’s seen the work of the Mexican cartels. Cartel activity is the worst-kept secret among the residents who, like Prado, prefer to keep to themselves.

    ...“To address the large number of illegal aliens in the interior of our country, we are strengthening law enforcement by hiring 10,000 additional ICE officers,” she said.

    That's at least some effort.

    Why don't we just bring our troops home from that shit hole in the Middle East and go with them?

    Let them sleep in their own fucking country for a change.

    I thought border crossings were down? But regardless, good.


    Seal the fucker border. Build the wall. Send them home.

    I can't blame them for wanting to come here to escape the hell hole known as Mexico, but that aint our problem. Get 'em out!

    We can't afford that, not with the tax cut.
