    I'm sorry I didn't parse the exact origins of the "Taco Bowl", it is generally considered to be part of "Mexican Food" and that is the context Trump AND YOU used it for.

    The federal government has stopped paying for English-language courses and legal services at facilities that hold immigrant children around the country, imposing budget cuts it says are necessary at a time when record numbers of unaccompanied children are arriving at the border.The Health and Human Services department notified shelters around the country last week that it was not going to reimburse them for teachers' pay or other costs such as legal services or recreational equipment.

    Keep the food and US sovereignty, deport the illegal aliens. Dump Trump the open borders globalist scofflaw.
    The Trump administration is planning a large-scale deportation operation of illegal aliens, including those who have refused to show for their asylum court hearings.
    The strategy is meant to “disincentivize” economic migrants who crossed into the U.S. illegally without legitimate asylum claims, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement acting director Mark Morgan.
    “We have no choice as I see this,” Morgan said Tuesday. “We need to take some interior enforcement action…We need to continue to do everything that we can within the current legal framework, within the current laws, within the current statutorily mandated duties of ICE, to assist, to reduce this humanitarian crisis. That will include families.”


    He said ICE won’t “target” families in their operation, but they won’t be “exempt” from deportation.
    “I think that a significant incentive there is the fact that once you’re here and you’ve gone through the entire due process in this country and you’ve received a final order of deportation…We’re in a position where we need to enforce that to disincentivize these individuals from taking that trip, exploiting the loopholes, and entering our country illegally,” he said.
    Additionally, Morgan pointed out that ICE would operate within its legal limitations despite Democrat efforts to prevent it.
    “We need to make sure that we’re executing those statutorily required responsibilities that Congress has passed,” Morgan said.
    “If they don’t like the laws, they can change them. But right now this is the law, this is ICE’s mandate. I’m committed to ensure that we’re executing those laws with compassion and humanity.”
    Morgan didn’t offer details about the deportation plan, such as when it will take place or what parts of the country would be involved.

    Open borders advocates are panicking after the arrest of Irieno Mujihca, the leader of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, a pro-open borders group funded by globalist financier George Soros that has worked to undermine United States immigration policy and sponsor Central American caravans.
    Michelle Malkin wrote on Twitter that “Open Borders Inc. enablers,” are in a state of “panic over reported arrest of Pueblo Sin Fronteras leader Irieno Mujihca”, and another open borders advocate.
    Malkin quoted Ruben Figueroa, who considers himself a “Defender of Human Rights of Migrants”. Figueroa wrote a panic-stricken tweet, translated from Spanish, #ALERT: The arrest of human rights defenders [who are] pro-migrants, Irineo Mujica and Cristóbal Sánchez, is confirmed.”

    Open borders zealots have good reason to be concerned. Big League Politics has reported extensively on Pueblo Sin Fronteras, which translates to People Without Borders, and their connections with the globalist banking system and Soros.
    In January, Pueblo Sin Fronteras was instrumental in organizing the Honduran migrant caravan that attempted to illegally cross into the United States. They did so with the help of Soros’s seemingly bottomless checkbook.

    The arrest of Mujica suggests the Trump administration is growing increasingly serious about cracking down on those who sponsor mass illegal immigration.

    Trump to step up asylum returns

    Also on Friday, a Mexican immigration official announced that the United States would be doubling the number of asylum seekers it sends back to Mexico from El Paso, Texas.
    Luis Carlos Cano, a spokesman for Mexico’s national immigration agency in Ciudad Juarez, across the border from El Paso, said starting Thursday some 200 asylum seekers per day were being sent back, up from 100 previously.
    Under pressure from U.S. President Donald Trump, Mexico agreed last week to expand the program, known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, which forces mostly Central American asylum seekers arriving at the U.S. southern border to remain in Mexico to await the outcome of their U.S. asylum claims. -Reuters
    The program, 'Remain in Mexico' has returned close to 12,000 people to Mexico since January.

    President Donald Trump revealed this morning that his administration will have built more than 400 miles of border wall along the southern border by the end of 2020, and said that the entire wall will be finished soon after.
    While being interviewed by phone on Fox News’ morning show “Fox & Friends”, President Trump revealed that his administration will have completed more than 400 miles of border wall by the end of 2020, despite tremendous opposition from Democrats and obstructionists.
    “So the wall is going up, it’s going up rapidly, we’re going to have over 400 miles of wall built by the end of next year,” said President Trump. “Tbe wall is very important. It’s hard to breach it, it’s high, it’s strong, it’s powerful, and it’s going up at a much lower cost than the wall that was planned prior to me getting there.”
    President Trump also remarked on the state of the previous border barrier the Obama and Bush administrations were building prior to his election.


    “You have to see what they built, it’s a disgrace,” said the president. “We’re actually fixing it and in some cases we have to take down fairly new wall because it was so bad.”
    He continued, “We’re going to have over 400 miles of wall built, and that’s going to be in the most important areas, and we’re going to have all of it built before you know.”
    The president then noted that all of this progress has been despite constant legal threats and political obstruction from Democrats.
    “This is despite tremendous obstacles that have been put in front of us by the Democrats, you have no idea,” he went on, “We just won the lawsuit on the wall, we won a big lawsuit on the wall, brought by Nancy Pelosi.”

    President Trump continued, lambasting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, “And maybe that’s criminal, that she’s allowing drug dealers and gang members into our country, maybe that’s criminal when you talk about it, because what’s happening on the border, we’re getting it straightened out.”
    The president then lamented that Democrats have refused to work with the Trump administration on any form of border security, telling the interviewers that Congress could “solve the asylum problem and the loopholes in 15 minutes.”

    U.S. and Guatemalan officials are negotiating a “safe third country” agreement which would bar the movement of U.S.-bound migrants through Guatemala, say press reports.

    Under the terms of the [draft] agreement, migrants fleeing persecution in El Salvador and Honduras would be required to seek asylum in Guatemala, a gateway to Mexico and the United States,” said the June 13 report by Voice of America News.


    A “safe third country” deal declares that migrants must apply for asylum in the first safe country they reach — and it allows the quick rejection of asylum claims if the migrants request asylum in more distant countries, such as the United States.
    From March to June, roughly 350,000 migrants used Congress’s border loopholes to walk through the border and into Americans’ blue-collar workplaces, schools, and neighborhoods. The low-wage migrants will provide cheaper services and higher stock values to upper-income Americans.
    U.S. government officials declined to comment, VOA reported:
    The pending agreement with Guatemala, if signed, would be the first such agreement with a Latin American country in U.S. history. In response to written questions about the draft agreement, a State Department spokesperson for Western Hemisphere Affairs told VOA Thursday that “The U.S. team currently in Guatemala is working with Guatemalan counterparts to explore a full range of initiatives to advance this agenda, including capacity building, strengthening of local institutions, and improved asylum processing,” adding, “We will not disclose further details of ongoing, private diplomatic conversations.”
    Pro-migration activists reacted with alarm to the news, partly because the Guatemalan deal would help President Donald Trump pressure Mexico to sign a safe third country deal.
    Mexico has agreed to negotiate a safe third country deal if the border security and the “Remain in Mexico” program fail to sharply reduce the number of migrants arriving at the U.S. border.

    President Trump’s pick to be the nation’s first-ever “border czar” is a longtime former cop and immigration official who takes a hard line on illegal crossings.

    Former acting ICE Director Thomas Homan told Secrets early in the Trump administration, for example, that he views every unauthorized border crossing as a crime that can and should be punished.
    "If you are in this country illegally, and you committed a crime by entering this country, you should be uncomfortable, you should look over your shoulder, and you need to be worried," Homan told Secrets.

    At the time, Trump had asked him to stay on and he agreed. Homan later left the administration, despite rumors he was under consideration to be homeland security secretary. He has remained a strong advocate for Trump and tough immigration policies.
    Insiders said that Trump likes Homan because he is unafraid to take on pro-immigration critics of the president and believes that any crime, including illegal border crossings, are a deportable offense.

    "No population is off the table," he told a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing in 2017. "We'll issue detainers to anybody in the country illegally," he said. "Our priorities are criminals first, but if you're asking me if we are going to put detainers on people that have not been convicted of a crime, yes we will," he added referring to the first step in deportation.
    Groups that back Trump’s efforts to stop illegal immigration praised the Homan pick.
    “The border has become increasingly porous, and action is desperately needed. Tom Homan is uniquely qualified to address these problems. I am confident he will provide the president with a comprehensive assessment of the situation as well as effective remedies,” said Dale L. Wilcox, executive director and general counsel of the Immigration Reform and Law Institute.
    “All we have heard from a succession of immigration officials – even going back to the Obama administration – is that the border crisis cannot be solved until Congress acts. Tom Homan is a man of action, so I expect that mind-set and that narrative to change,” added Jessica M. Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Immigration Studies.

    She also said that Homan should work well with incoming U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services head Ken Cuccinelli.
    “I think that Ken Cuccinelli and Tom Homan will work well together, because Cuccinelli also wants to hit the ground running and has ideas for how to tackle the border crisis. They are both rule-of-law kind of guys. One thing that Cuccinelli brings to the operation is his understanding of how states can be full and constructive partners in immigration enforcement,” she told Secret.


    Homan worked in immigration law enforcement for years and has deep roots. He is considered a “cop's cop” who speaks bluntly.
    Like the president, he has been very tough on the sanctuary city movement and pro-immigrant judges.
    "Sanctuary cities are a danger to the men and women of ICE," he said.

    The Trump administration said Monday it is easing previously announced cuts in hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the Central American nations of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala but will not allow new funding until those countries do more to reduce migrant flows to the United States.The State Department said that after a review of more than $615 million in assistance that President Donald Trump ordered in March to be cut entirely, it would go ahead with $432 million in projects and grants that had been previously approved. The remaining amount will be held in escrow pending consultations with Congress, it said.
    That $432 million, which comes from the 2017 budget, is being spent on health, education and poverty alleviation programs as well as anti-crime efforts that many believe help reduce migrant outflows from the impoverished Northern Triangle region. About $370 million in money from the 2018 budget will not be spent and instead will be moved to other projects, the State Department said.
    "Previously awarded grants and contracts will continue with current funding," department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said. She added that assistance "to help the Northern Triangle governments take actions that will protect the U.S. border and counter transnational organized crime will also continue."
    U.S. officials said the review looked at roughly 700 projects funded with fiscal 2017 money by the United States in the three countries and concluded that a significant number were too far advanced to end them.


    Ortagus told reporters the administration was leaving the door open to future funding but would first have to see progress on migration.
    "We will not provide new funds for programs in those countries until we are satisfied that the Northern Triangle governments are taking concrete actions to reduce the number of migrants coming to the U.S. border, she said. "This is consistent with the president's direction and with the recognition that it is critical that there be sufficient political will in these countries to address the problem at its source."

    President Trump’s recent appointee to head U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is apparently wasting little time in making changes at the agency.
    According to a report, USCIS Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli sent an email to staffers Tuesday, instructing asylum officers to halt some asylum efforts during initial screenings at U.S. border entry points.
    "Asylum officers, you took an oath to support and defend the constitution of the United States,” Cuccinelli wrote, according to BuzzFeed News. “As a public servant your role as an asylum officer requires faithful application of the law.


    “Therefore,” the email continued, “USCIS must, in full compliance with the law, make sure we are properly screening individuals who claim fear but nevertheless do not have a significant possibility of receiving a grant of asylum or another form of protection available under our nation’s laws.”
    Cuccinelli reminded the officers that they are empowered to combat “frivolous claims” of asylum and should “ensure that [they] are upholding our nation’s laws by only making positive credible fear determinations in cases that have a significant possibility of success,” the report said.

    The United States is more than doubling the number of asylum seekers it returns to Mexico in one city and adding groups like Cubans as it rapidly expands a policy to make migrants wait out claims south of the border, Mexican and U.S. officials said.The policy, known as the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), is being applied to all Spanish-speaking asylum seekers, other than Mexicans, at three U.S.-Mexico border crossings, said a U.S. government official familiar with the program, who asked not to be named.
    The Trump administration plans to expand the program, which faces court challenges, across the border to act as a deterrent to frivolous asylum claims during a surge in Central American migrant families.
    A U.S. Department of Homeland Security official said the administration was considering building temporary immigration courts along the border to process MPP returnees.
    The MPP expansion follows Mexico's agreement earlier this month to receive thousands more migrants under the program.
    As of June 19, according to Mexican officials, 13,987 people had been returned to Mexico under MPP.
    In its first months, the policy primarily applied to Central American migrants, but as of Monday the United States began applying it to Spanish speakers more broadly, including Cubans, said Rogelio Pinal, a municipal official in Juarez, Mexico.


    Pinal said his office was told returns from El Paso to Juarez would increase to 500 per day from around 200.
    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said the government was "actively pursuing expansion plans across the board to include all individuals, unless specifically exempted," in MPP returns.
    The U.S. official said MPP would be expanded to cities in Arizona and south Texas, which could include Brownsville. A Mexican official confirmed new locations would include Brownsville.


    Ruben Garcia, who runs El Paso's largest migrant shelter, said there had been a sharp fall in the number of migrants released into the United States by U.S. authorities.
    Garcia said reduced migration during summer heat played a role, but tighter immigration enforcement in Mexico and the MPP program were driving forces in the drop to around 125 releases per day from up to 700 three weeks ago.
