    For those who want to know why killaries bleach bit email scandal runs so deep into so many then you need to watch this!

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H7-Qg57lVmU

    I would say 100% now that Comey and the FBI was forced to dismiss the new info found on weiner/abadins computer and a political deal was struck with Trump! Killary already knew she would not ever be President at least a week before the election and just before Comey made the last announcement on the email investigation.

    Trump will not appoint a special prosecutor into Killary and the Clinton Foundation will not yield enough evidence to prosecute the Clinton's.

    Trump will now enter a Presidential club of Political silence in hope of stopping complete USA Anarchy and the end of USA.

    Texas already has part funding for "The wall" from the Bush ere but was not allowed to continue building under Obammy.

    Texas has now started to commence re building,not to keep out Mexicans because their numbers have dropped significantly over the past few years but to keep out Africans,Pakistani and others from middle east using mexico as a back door into US. These economical migrants are entering the americas from Brasil and making their way to Mexico by the thousands.

    Dont take my word for it look it up!

    He is now bound by political silence and full presidential protocols cant you see that? No political group or president elect can start issuing policy statements willy nilly to the press or public until the policies have been worked out debated and passed! He is you seem to forget "Now The President elect" yes try saying it "President elect Trump" not a contender in a race for the presidential election, this means everything he says in public will be recorded and documented because now it belongs on government record,you see the US President including president elect are federal government agents of the extreme order for the people 24/7 for 4 years plus.

    What else is he meant to do with his close family? They are not the usual politically raised family members, they need to be just as confidential as he so they need to be inducted into the highest classification inner circle for the protection of USA political business and safety.

    By Julia Edwards
    (This version of the August 16 story corrects title of U.S. Customs and Border Protection from U.S. Customs and Border Patrol in ninth paragraph)

    By Julia Edwards

    Washington is seeking closer coordination with several Latin American countries to tackle a jump in migrants from Asia, Africa and the Middle East who it believes are trying to reach the United States from the south on an arduous route by plane, boat and through jungle on foot.

    ADVERTISING

    inRead invented by Teads

    U.S. agents deployed to an immigration facility on Mexico's southern border have vetted the more than 640 migrants from countries outside the Americas who have been detained at the center since October 2015, according to U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) documents reviewed by Reuters.

    The migrants often fly to Brazil, obtain fake passports there, and are smuggled to Panama before heading through Central America to Mexico's porous southern border, according to transcripts of 14 interviews conducted at the center and other internal briefing documents seen by Reuters.

    (Graphic: From Brazil to the north: tmsnrt.rs/2b8JIDI)

    The U.S. agents' findings come as Mexican immigration data show 6,342 Asian, African and Middle Eastern migrants were apprehended trying to enter Mexico in the first six months of this year. That was up from 4,261 in all of 2015, and 1,831 in 2014.

    U.S. border apprehensions point to the same trend. Between October 2015 and May 2016, U.S. agents apprehended 5,350 African and Asian migrants at the U.S. Southwest border. That's up from 6,126 in all of fiscal year 2015 and 4,172 in all of fiscal year 2014.

    U.S. concerns about potential security risks from migrants using the unusual and circuitous southern route have been growing in recent years, following a string of Islamic State-inspired attacks in the West and the surge in Syrian refugees fleeing that country's civil war.

    Five Syrian nationals detained in Honduras last November were part of a wider group of seven Syrians who acquired forged passports in Brazil and then went by land to Argentina on their way north, a U.S. government source familiar with that case said. There was no evidence to suggest the men were militants.

    "The reality is that the vast majority of the people that Mexico encounters that are extra-continental will eventually end up on our border," a U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) official said.

    At the detention camp in Tapachula, near Mexico's border with Guatemala, U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents have been training their Mexican counterparts on interview techniques, and using U.S. criminal databases to investigate detainees, according to internal documents seen by Reuters.

    Two to three U.S. agents have been stationed there since at least October, according to the documents and U.S. officials. Mexican officials have previously acknowledged the presence of U.S. agents at Mexico's southern border, but few details of the cooperation have been reported.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection began a pilot program for a similar operation in Panama earlier this fiscal year, according to an internal memo sent in May that has not previously been reported. Homeland Security officials told Reuters that Panama requested U.S. training. A spokesman for Panama's National Migration Service said Panama accepted an offer from the U.S. embassy for training on subjects like "defense techniques" and "management of persons."

    U.S. proponents of the program have pushed for a greater U.S. footprint to build a "comprehensive intelligence picture" of migration patterns across the Colombia-Panama border, according to the memo sent in May.

    Panama is leading the effort in Central America to detain illegal migrants, DHS assistant secretary for international affairs Alan Bersin told a House committee in March, but it stymied by lack of detention space and the difficulty of deporting migrants to countries with whom they have no diplomatic ties. As a result, most are released after 30 days.

    Bersin acknowledged the rise in migrants from outside the Americas and the potential security threat they pose.

    "While many citizens of these countries migrate for economic reasons or because they are fleeing persecution in their home countries, this group may include migrants who are affiliated with foreign terrorist organizations, intelligence agencies, and organized criminal syndicates," Bersin told the House Committee on Foreign Affairs.

    DHS has deployed additional "mentor" teams throughout South and Central America to professionalize immigration authorities and gain intelligence about potentially threatening migrants, said DHS officials, who declined to specify which countries host U.S. agents.

    Another DHS official said the agency is asking Brazil through diplomatic channels to put a stop to fake passport manufacturing. Brazilian officials did not respond to Reuters' request for comment.

    The U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a unit of DHS, is "actively working to enhance regional collaboration with border and customs authorities from Mexico all the way down to Argentina," a DHS official said.

    ON FOOT IN THE JUNGLE

    The apprehension documents from the Tapachula center show how migrants are willing and able to pay thousands of dollars to obtain flights and fake passports and then make grueling journeys on buses, boats and on foot.

    It was not clear how many of those apprehended at the center were deported, claimed asylum or simply released.

    Several of the 14 migrants -- in testimony given from May 18-23 this year -- said they paid more than $10,000 to smugglers, walked for days through jungles, and were temporarily detained by various countries before being stopped in Tapachula.

    Six of the men -- who included Pakistanis, Syrians and Afghans-- had obtained fake passports, claiming to be from Israel, Morocco, Belgium or Britain.

    In Panama, several of the men said they were kept in a migration detention camp for about a month. From Panama, the migrants described traveling in larger groups, sometimes as many as 50 men.

    One Pakistani national -- whose identity U.S. officials asked not to be revealed because he is still under investigation -- told U.S. and Mexican officials that he paid a smuggler in Pakistan $9,000 to be smuggled to Brazil where he received a fake Belgian passport.

    In Brazil, he paid $4,000 to a woman to be taken on bus, boat and on foot through across Colombia and into Panama.

    He said he was detained in Panama but then released. From there, a smuggler from Lebanon took the man and 35 other migrants of different nationalities to Honduras, where he said he was robbed of all of his belongings.

    Sore loser? Intelligent comment there. I'm not American and didn't vote. Not protesting either. The amazing thing I see here is the ability (or inability) of posters to not actually read what is posted.

    In what way have I lost? And when did I say I wanted Clinton to get in? Please enlighten me as I'm either losing my mind or you are just putting out stupid comments in regards to something I never said.

    Smart arsed ignorance? Please enlighten me without calling me a communist (your standard response to whoever doesn't agree with you).
    Civility? So, you called me a smart arse, you called me ignorant, you basically accused me of knowing nothing and needing my mum to help me. And you now say I need to learn how to read. Very civil of you.

    You're sounding more like Trump every minute. (And that's not a compliment).

    All in your mind
    Do any of you Clinton clowns think for yourselves at all ?
    You have evidence all there in black and white and in their own words of the Democrats Corruption with Wikileaks.
    You have evidence in black and white of the Presstitutes conspiracy to pass on debate questions in their own words as well via the same source.
    You have evidence of all the MSM working together with Clintons team to promote her as some sort of saint and Trump being a demon.
    You have evidence of the social justice warriors organising violence at Trump rally's.
    You have evidence of the left wing socialist Soros funding and aiding all of the above.
    You have evidence of the Clinton foundation's absolute corruption and acceptance of funding from the very same people funding Isis.
    You have evidence of Clinton when secretary of state outright breaking the law, and yet no charges being laid.

    Can any of you show any evidence at all that Trump did the same or was aided in the same way by the MSM or funded by anyone trying to influence the election outcome ?

    If so put up or shut up.

    I appreciate that every one has an opinion and a right to state it, but at the same time all that seems to dribble from your keyboards is the same crap leftwing talking points we all see from the likes of the project or the ABC.

    Nothing original in thought at all, nothing that disputes the facts, nothing that even remotely passes as intelligent debate. My 11 year old poses better indepth arguments about bedtime than you guy's do with this subject.

    Outside of your carefully regurgitated SJW and MSM Trump topics, you seem as clueless as a virgin at a brothel as to what is going on and what has just happened.

    Do You think political corruption is ok ?
    Do You think pay to play is ok ?
    Do you think MSM brainwashing is all good ?
    Do you think the likes of the Suadis and Soros donating millions to an US potential president wont require any payback ?
    Do you think the likes of Soros spending millions on the likes of BLM, Move-on, Getup and such are done just on a whim ?

    Do you think ?

    This article explains very well why Trump won the votes he did.

    Meanwhile, an American university is running classes for millennials struggling with the election outcome by provided safe spaces with crayons, colouring books and puppies to cuddle. Diddums.

    Maybe this should go in the 'You couldn't make it up' thread.

    The truly scary thing? When I am 75, living on my savings, frail and vulnerable, these damaged young snowflakes will be in running the world and doing all the wealth-generation. Yeah, right.
