A Texas mother and daughter, ages 59 and 22, were killed Saturday when a human smuggler ran a stop sign and slammed into their vehicle. Both women were pronounced dead at the scene.

Esteban Cantu Jr. is an 18-year-old U.S. citizen who was attempting to flee from the police while smuggling six illegal immigrants. The Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) released a statement to Sara Carter stating DPS had “responded to assist the United States Border Patrol on Saturday, December 11, 2021, at approximately 11:51 a.m., after a vehicle failed to yield on Conway north of US 83 in Mission, Texas – Rio Grande Valley Sector.”

Cantu Jr. was driving a Ford Explorer SUV when he crashed into his victims. All six immigrants and Cantu were taken to local hospitals and treated for injuries. Cantu was arrested and charged with evading arrest with a motor vehicle and for human smuggling.

DPS says the mother and daughter who were killed are locals of the Mission, Texas area and their identities are pending release once next of kin has been notified. The six illegal immigrants are from El Salvador and Guatemala, and ages range from 15 yrs – 36 yrs.

Esteban Cantu Jr. will be formally arraigned on Monday for additional charges including his involvement with the deaths of both mother and daughter. The Mission Police Department is further investigating.

Fox News reports:

Last week, the Biden administration said it would reinstate Trump’s controversial migrant protection protocols (MPP), also known as the “Remain in Mexico” policy, which keeps migrants on the other side of the border while they await hearings.

DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued a memo to formally end the program in October, and DHS emphasized on Thursday that he “repeatedly stated that MPP has endemic flaws, imposed unjustifiable human costs, pulled resources and personnel away from other priority efforts, and failed to address the root causes of irregular migration.”

    How many more? Can we get a number on how many US citizens have to die for the Democrats corrupt, ILLEGAL, agenda to allow this invasion of our country? Democrat voters don’t want it, legal immigrants don’t want it, normal law abiding citizens have voted against it for DECADES. Democrats have lied to us election after election after election after election….”we will stop illegal immigration” and then they increase it. Vote better, stop believing the liars.

    Should add murder charges as well. Fleeing makes it intentional.

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote

Published

Mayorkas

The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
