Breitbart News’ Brandon Darby walks viewers from the Rio Grande River into a U.S. neighborhood, revealing just how unsecured the U.S./Mexico border really is. Darby walks viewers through the unfinished “Border Fence,” which had no gate or security of any kind. The location was west of Penitas, Texas.

Darby, who is on assignment along the U.S./Mexico border investigating cartels and public corruption, stated by telephone:
"The southeastern stretch of the Rio Grande river is where most of Texas' illegal immigration occurs. The area has many desolate regions and there simply aren't enough resources being applied to the issue.

"Cartels and street gangs control the human smuggling. The region where I took the video is currently heavily disputed between the Mexican Gulf cartel and the Los Zetas cartel, which is actually an armed insurgency," said Darby.

"Transnational crime syndicates usually have a stash house just on the other side of the wall. People cross the river and go to these houses. Then they are taken up various highways and let out just before the known immigration check points. They walk miles and miles from that point to the next stash house."

Darby was referencing a 2012 report from the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime in his assertions about human smuggling.

"Breitbart News has just begun to open the taps on the human stories and issues of public corruption occurring on our southern border. We will continue to surprise our readers and the American public with the information we are uncovering," said Darby.



The Remembrance Project, a national organization that dedicates itself to bringing awareness to victims of violence and crime perpetrated by illegal aliens, is calling on key U.S. Senators to dump the 1,200-page “Gang of Eight” immigration bill this week and start over.

The Remembrance Project’s director Maria Espinoza made the call in letters to Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Kay Hagan (D-NC), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Jon Tester (D-MT), Claire McCaskill (D-MO), Sherrod Brown (D-OH), Bob Casey (D-PA), Max Baucus (D-MT), Rob Portman (R-OH), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Johnny Isakson (R-GA) and Saxby Chambliss (R-GA) on Tuesday evening.

“I am writing to you today on behalf of all these suffering families to plead with you to vote against final passage of the immigration bill now before the U.S. Senate,” Espinoza wrote to each of the senators. “The most forgotten part of the immigration debate are the victims of illegal alien violence and the lives that will be lost in the future if we don’t learn from the mistakes of the past."

"Sadly, the current senate immigration proposal guarantees more—not less—future victims of illegal alien violence. The Senate proposal provides immediate amnesty to illegal aliens with multiple criminal convictions including child abusers, domestic abusers, sex offenders, drunk drivers, and many violent criminals. It also explicitly provides amnesty to gang members who are responsible for countless deaths in our country each year. These provisions are a slap in the face to the families and memories of victims of illegal alien violence.”

Espinoza argues that citizens in each of those aforementioned senators’ states could find themselves in harm’s way if this bill ever became law. “The citizens in your state, and in every state, would be needlessly and directly endangered by this legislation,” Espinoza wrote.

Espinoza points to how Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) National Council president Chris Crane has noted that this bill would make it worse for interior immigration enforcement, and how that would put people in each of those senator’s states at risk.

“The authors of this legislation worked hand-in-hand with rich businessmen and amnesty advocates while never once considering the rights of the victims of illegal alien violence,” Espinoza wrote. “For instance, the legislation includes a provision that would create an “enforcement holiday” for 2.5 years on interior immigration enforcement during the application period. Obviously, criminal offenders will take advantage of this provision to evade deportation and commit further violent crimes against our families.”

Espinoza went on to say that Congress should “shred this bill and go back to the drawing board with American families as their priority.”

Espinoza spoke out against the bill for its lack of enforcement mechanisms last week at a Tea Party press conference on Capitol Hill. “One American life stolen by an illegal alien is one life too many,” Espinoza said at that press conference.
