124 illegal immigrants released by DHS later charged with murder: report
    More than 100 illegal immigrants caught but released by the Obama administration over the last five years have gone on to be charged with murders after they were set free, according to a new report being released Monday from the Center for Immigration Studies.
    In all, some 121 immigrants who were freed by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement between 2010 and 2014 went on to be charged with a total of 135 homicide-related crimes. Another three immigrants were charged with murders in 2015, bringing to 124 the total number of murder suspects the government had, then released.

Congratulations to the Herald
Yesterday the Sierra Vista Herald ran a video of drug smugglers on its Facebook page with this caption:

Almost nine thousand people saw the video, which elicited these typical responses:

This is very infuriating to watch.

Sniper teams with Barrett's could solve this problem in a short time. We should militarize a strip along the border ten miles into the continental US and allow the military to operate, and protect the border.

My son is writing a paper on the illegal immigration issues here in Cochise County. It's way worse Then anyone knows. He has interviewed ranchers who lives are unsafe and helpless due to the dangerous illegals crossing every day. 50 plus per day all hrs... and this is in our county

I was told by a border patrol agent that a certain "sanctuary church" in Sierra Vista welcomes them.... even those with"bricks" on their backs . Apparently, the bricks are 60 lb packages of pot. When one of the officials of the church was confronted about the fact that they harbor drug runners, the response was "we don't differentiate...we don't ask what they are carrying." As you can see in the video, the bricks are obvious. This church is contributing to the inflow of pot (and who know whatever else) entering Arizona.

Congratulations to the Sierra Vista Herald for doing its job to inform its readers. Too bad other Arizona newspapers ignore the problem.
