A gunman wearing a FedEx driver’s uniform came to the home of a federal judge connected to high-profile cases, one involving Jeffery Epstein, killing her son and leaving her husband in critical condition after they answered the door to the assailant, according to news reports and law enforcement officials.
Judge Esther Salas is linked to federal court cases involving Jeffery Epstein, and oversaw cases involving the reality TV couple the “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” as well as very dangerous gangs that operated the state.
The killings are now being investigated by the FBI and occurred at the families North Brunswick home around 5 p.m., according to reports.
Salas’s husband was defense lawyer Mark Anderl, 63. According to reports he survived but was left seriously injured and is in critical condition at a local hospital. Judge Salas was in the basement at the time of the shooting and was not injured in the shooting, according to Fox News.
According to local New Jersey reports, Daniel Anderl , was the judge’s 20-year-old son and a student at Catholic University in Washington, D.C.
Salas is presiding over an ongoing lawsuit brought by Deutsche Bank investors. According to the lawsuit, Deutsche Bank failed its due diligence to abide by its anti-money laundering policies and reports state the bank failed to monitor “high-risk” customers, like convicted sex offender Epstein.
“The FBI is investigating a shooting at the home of Judge Salas. We are working with our local and state partners,” Doreen Holder, the public information officer for the bureau’s Newark office, told Fox News.

Canadian-U.S. border illegal crossings up 240% over previous year
The vulnerability of the northern border of the United States is being weaponized in the war on illegal migration. 2023 saw a 240% increase of individuals apprehended from just one year prior. Not only is the border with Canada significantly longer than its border with Mexico, but its ports of entry are often understaffed while the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is forced to prioritize the southern surge.
According to recent data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, in 2023 authorities halted over 12,000 migrants attempting illegal crossings at the Canadian border. The number is a 240% increase from the preceding year when 3,579 individuals were apprehended.
ADN America reports that approximately 70% of the illegal crossings took place along a 295-mile stretch along the northern New York, Vermont, and New Hampshire border called the Swanton Sector.
Chief patrol agent for the sector, Robert Garcia, posted on social media that the 3,100 individuals apprehended were from 55 different countries.
Garcia wrote “the record-breaking surge of illegal entries from Canada continues in Swanton Sector” and he specifically mentioned that the arrest of 10 Bangladeshi citizens was prompted by a citizen’s report in Champlain, New York.
Surprisingly, ADN reports:
A significant number of those engaging in illegal crossings are Mexicans who exploit the opportunity to fly to Canada without a visa, also avoiding the presence of cartels in their home countries.
Experts suggest that migrants can purchase a $350 one-way plane ticket from Mexico City or Cancun to Montreal or Toronto. This route is perceived as offering a lower likelihood of being turned away compared to those crossing the southern border.
