Breitbart is reporting that two agents with Customs and Border Protection apprehended eight Syrians in two “family units” attempting to cross into Texas on the Juarez Lincoln Bridge in Laredo, Texas, otherwise known officially as Port of Entry 1, on Monday, November 16th.

Border Patrol agent and National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 President Hector Garza told Breitbart Texas, “Border Patrol agents who we represent have been contacting our organization to voice concerns about reports from other agents that Syrians crossed the U.S. border from Mexico in the Laredo Sector. Our agents have heard about Syrians being apprehended in the area from other federal agents.”

A Syrian caught using someone else’s passport also tried to get into Texas back at the end of the September and was stopped.

The timing cannot be missed.

While more than half of the state governors across the U.S. have said they will not be accepting Syrian refugees, according to the Refugee Act of 1980, “President Obama has explicit statutory authorization to accept foreign refugees into the United States,” PBS reports.

Meanwhile, ISIS is issuing new threats against the U.S. and the White House has started the new hashtag #RefugeesWelcome.

This goes on and on… Looks like the governors are going to have a fight on their hands if they want to keep Syrian refugees out.

The French President has also vowed to welcome 30,000 Syrian refugees just as the nation’s Prime Minister warns that ISIS may stage a chemical/biological warfare attack against France.

The United States Of America At Night

By Michael Snyder – End Of The American Dream

Despite everything that just happened in France, on Sunday the Obama administration made it clear that it still plans to resettle at least 10,000 Syrian refugees in communities all over the United States within the next year.  Thanks to Obama, the U.S. has already been absorbing thousands of refugees from the Middle East each year, and as you will see below, just last week administration officials expressed a desire to “increase and accelerate” that process.  So far, the list of states that have received the most refugees includes Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.  But by the time it is all said and done, it is likely that Syrian refugees will end up in virtually every major city in the United States.  The U.S. State Department has established “refugee processing centers” in 48 different states, and you can view the entire list right here.  Considering what just took place in Paris, is this really a good idea?

In recent months, the massive influx of refugees into Europe has created a complete and utter nightmare.  Large numbers of refugees have gotten “lost”, violent crime is out of control in many of the areas where these refugees have been resettled, and nations that were once extremely peaceful such as Norway and Sweden are now dealing with an epidemic of rape.  For much, much more on the horror that Europe is now facing, please check out this excellent video.

And of course you have probably heard by now that at least one of the terrorists that carried out the attacks in Paris came into Europe “as a Syrian migrant”

One of the bombers who carried out the Paris terrorist attacks entered Europe as a Syrian migrant, according to foreign officials.

French authorities matched the remains of one of the suicide bombers from the Friday attacks to a Syrian passport that was used to apply for asylum in Europe, says Greek minister for citizen protection Nikos Toskas.

But even though ISIS has claimed responsibility for the attacks in France, Barack Obama doesn’t seem very alarmed.  And it was just last week that Obama stated that ISIS had been “contained”.  The following comes from the Hill

Regardless of tropical development in the western Gulf of Mexico or not, a stream of tropical moisture into Texas will raise the risk of heavy rain and flooding starting later this week.

Although the Atlantic has been quiet since Hurricane Joaquin, conditions in the Gulf of Mexico are showing signs that the tropical season may not be finished.

In years of strong El Niño, it is rather difficult for tropical systems to strengthen in the Atlantic due to unrelenting wind shear; this has been the cause for less-than-normal activity during the 2015 Atlantic hurricane season.

Wind shear is a rapid change in direction and speed of air flow at different levels of the atmosphere. Wind shear can prevent a tropical system from forming and cause an organized tropical system to weaken.

Localized drenching thunderstorms will develop across New Mexico and western Texas through the end of the week.

According to AccuWeather Meteorologist Ryan Adamson, “As a storm system spins across the Southwest, thunderstorms will impact much of Mexico and western Texas into Friday.”

Tropical moisture from the eastern Pacific will continue to be drawn into the storm system and aid in the development of widespread showers and thunderstorms.

This same storm produced areas of heavy rain and flooding to parts of the Southwest earlier in the week, including Las Vegas.

Las Vegas received 0.62 of an inch of rain on Monday. The last time Las Vegas received close to that amount of rain in a single day was back on Aug. 13 when 0.57 of an inch of rain fell.

While the rain will be beneficial in terms of moistening the ground and lowering the risk of wildfires, the storm system by itself will not be enough to impact drought conditions greatly.
