Border Patrol Agents Shoot Suspect Accused of Gunning Down a Man in El Paso

Border PatrolBy Steve Neavling

Border Patrol agent shot a man near a Greyhound bus station in downtown El Paso.

KFOX 14 reports that agents heard gunshots near the bus station Thursday evening and rushed to the scene, where a man had been shot dead by another man.

Agents said they spotted the shooter running with a gun. He then pointed the gun at the agents, forcing them to open fire, according to a Border Patrol spokesman.

The suspect was taken to the hospital, where his condition was not immediately known.

“At this point it is a multiple agency investigation,” said El Paso Detective Mike Baranyay. “We are trying to identify additional witnesses. So until we get that all coordinated and conducted it will be a little premature for us to know exactly to know what caused the altercation.

Homeland Security Readies for Raid to Deport Hundreds of Central American Families

Homeland Security is preparing for a series of raids that involve deporting hundred of families who fled to the United States since the beginning of 2014, the Washington Post reports. 

As early as January, ICE agents will embark on its first large-scale deportation of families who came from violence-torn Central America.

The deportation targets adults and children who already have been ordered removed from the U.S. by an immigration judge.

At least hundreds of immigrants will be targeted.

“It would be an outrage if the administration subjected Central American families to even more aggressive enforcement tactics,” said Gregory Chen, director of advocacy for the American Immigration Lawyers Association. “This administration has never acknowledged the truth: that these families are refugees seeking asylum who should be given humanitarian protection rather than being detained or rounded up. When other countries are welcoming far more refugees, the U.S. should be ashamed for using jails and even contemplating large-scale deportation tactics.”

Border Patrol agents often come across vehicles disguised to look like delivery or telecommunications trucks to fool law enforcement.

But what they came across last week was very rare. A Chevy Tahoe was painted took like a Border Patrol vehicle, Fox News reports. 

Agents noticed the cloned vehicle and pulled it over, finding 12 people stuffed in the back.

“There’s no fender, there’s no ground effect on any of our vehicles, Omar Zamora, an agent with the Border Patrol Rio Grande Valley sector, told KRGV-TV. “They’re actually pretty bare and about as high as we get the vehicle, because we do go off road.”

Zamora said the clone was an obvious fake.

“In the 18 years that I’ve been in the Border Patrol, we’ve seen UPS, FedEx trucks, Time Warner trucks, any kind of clones. Any business you can think of. The smugglers are trying to clone it to avoid law enforcement detection,” Zamora added.

The FBI is using elite surveillance squads and more than 500 FBI agents to track 48 high-risk ISIS suspects in the U.S., the Daily Mail reports. 

The agents are working around-the-clock in the event that a terrorist attack is planned.

“There is a very significant number of people that are on suspicious watch lists, under surveillance,” Republican Senator Dan Coats, who is on the Select Committee on Intelligence, said.

Coats added that it “takes enormous amounts of manpower” to follow the suspects constantly and is costing the authorities dear.

“It is a big resource drain. Yes it is. Almost overwhelming,” Coats said.

“There will be a lot of people over the Thanksgiving weekend that will not be enjoying turkey with their family. They’ll be out there providing security for the American people and the threat is particularly high during this holiday period,” he added.

Border Patrol Struggles to Find Enough Agents to Protect U.S.-Mexico Border

Border Patrol is struggling to hire enough agents to protect the U.S.-Mexico border, KTAR News reports. 

The difficulty of hiring entry-level agents means the Border Patrol is short-staffed.

“The process to get very good people is time consuming,” U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske said.

“If you are a talented Border Patrol officer, you have a college degree (and) you are fluent in Spanish, there are a lot of other opportunities out there for you,” he said.

CBP officials have expanded their recruiting efforts, targeting veterans and speeding up the hiring process.

“With the Border Patrol, we are losing more people than we are actually able to hire,” he said.

A former New York state senator who was convicted of lying to FBI agents was sentenced to six months of house arrest on Tuesday, Reuters reports. 

The once-powerful Republican lawmaker, Thomas Libous, lied to agents about a public corruption investigation.

A judge said Libous, 62, would have been sent to prison if he didn’t have terminal cancer.

Libous was accused of pledging to steer business to a law firm if it hired his son.

Authorities also said his son’s salary was supposed to be financed by a lobbying firm.

Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina pointed out “a startling fact” on Tuesday: The IRS has more agents than the FBI and CIA.

“Does that strike you as a mis-allocation of resources? Of course it is. We need to take this terror threat seriously,” Fiorina said in an interview with Fox News. 

While it’s unclear how many agents the CIA has because of its classified budget, the employment numbers are disproportionate. The IRS is authorized in its budget to have 82,203 employees, while the FBI has 35,000 employees.

Fiorina said she supports increasing “the amount of agents we have on the ground.”

“Let’s get real here and talk about who’s the enemy and do what is necessary to protect our nation, because the first and most important responsibility of the federal government is to protect the nation,” she said.

FBI Foils Alleged Plans by White Supremacists to Shoot Up, Bomb Church And Synagogues

The FBI said it has disrupted two men’s plans to shoot up or bomb churches and synagogues.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that FBI agents were posing as illegal arms dealers who received orders for guns and explosives from two men who were part of a white supremacy group.

The men, Robert C. Doyle, 34, of Chester, and Ronald Beasley Chaney III, 33, were charged  Monday in U.S. District Court in Richmond with attempting to buy the weapons from FBI agents.

“Doyle and Chaney and others known and unknown to the FBI, ascribe to a white supremacy extremist version of the Asatru faith (a pagan religion),” alleges a five-page affidavit from FBI Special Agent James R. Rudisill.

The agent said the plan was for Doyle and others to meet at Doyle’s house “to discuss acting out in furtherance of their extremist beliefs by shooting or bombing the occupants of black churches and Jewish synagogues, conducting acts of violence against persons of the Jewish faith, and doing harm to a gun store owner.”
