    The devastated community of Uvalde, Texas, is divided on gun control in the wake of the elementary school massacre. Parents and teens from the local high school are pleading for some restrictions to stop more teens like Salvador Ramos from buying an AR-15 just a day after his 18th birthday and using it to murder 19 children and two teachers. Meanwhile, the heroic, off-duty border patrol agent who evacuated several children including his own eight-year-old daughter from Robb Elementary School, is urging for teachers to be trained and armed so they can protect their students in case of the inevitable next tragedy.  Jacob Albarado, a father of three, who had borrowed a shotgun from his barber and rushed into the school after learning about the shooting while in the barber's chair, called for more guards at schools and training for educators. 'Only time will heal their pain and hopefully changes will be made at all schools in the U.S. and teachers will be trained & allowed to carry in order to protect themselves and students,' he said. But parents of children...

    Texas Border Patrol agents have denied whipping migrants and claimed anyone with 'two brain cells' knows they use split reins to control their horses, after images emerged of mounted officers appearing to whip Haitian border crossers. Agents pushed back against the criticism leveled at them and accused the Biden administration of trying to deflect from its own failings in tackling the migrant crisis. One unidentified agent told Fox News the outrage over the images shows officials lack 'basic knowledge' of handling horses and that the outrage 'just proves what absolute idiots they are.' And in a separate interview on Tuesday, National Border Patrol Council Vice President Art Del Cueto insisted the agents were using approved techniques, claiming they were not whipping anyone. Disturbing photos and video surfaced Sunday appearing to show agents on horseback whipping Haitian migrants with horse reins at the Rio Grande river which connects Mexico and the US.   A Border Patrol officer is swinging what appears to be a lariat while trying to stop Haitian migrants from entering an encampment on the banks of the Rio Grande near the Acuna Del Rio...
    The White House is reacting to disturbing images that surfaced on Sunday of Border Patrol agents appearing to whip Haitian migrants desperately trying to cross the Rio Grande river into the United States.  'I don't know what the circumstances would be, it's obviously horrific,' Press Secretary Jen Psaki said of relevant footage from the border on Monday. Psaki was asked about the images at her daily White House briefing. 'I've seen some of the footage, I don't have the full context, I can't imagine what context would make that appropriate but I don't have additional details,' she said.  'I don't think anyone seeing that footage would think it was acceptable or appropriate.' She added that it was 'horrible to watch.' A video obtained Sunday night shows Border Patrol officers on horseback, waiting on the US side of the Rio Grande as migrants - some of them families with young children - wade through chest-deep waters trying to cross.  Officers can be seen charging their horses toward migrants carrying food and supplies. Some of them are swinging what appears to be...
    A U.S. Customs and Border Protection helicopter surveillance camera captured the brave actions of a border agent who rescued a migrant boy from drowning.  Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector agents were doing an inspection of an area near Penitas, Texas, on Saturday after spotting footprints that led from the Rio Grande River into the United States.  They noticed a child attempting to swim across a pond that is connected to the river. The Guatemalan child reached out for a branch as he struggled to stay afloat, prompting the agent, who is assigned to McAllen station, to tie a rope around his waist and go after the kid. It wasn't clear if he descended from the helicopter, or if he was already on the ground.  Footage shows the Border Patrol agent, who remains unnamed, guiding the boy toward the shallow part of the waterway and out of danger.

    A recently retired US Border Patrol agent has been arrested as the suspected serial rapist who terrorized an Arizona community two decades ago, according to police. The Mesa Police Department used DNA to identify John Daly, 57, as the “East Valley Rapist” — who sexually assaulted eight women in four Arizona cities between July 1999 and October 2001. “The Mesa Police Department, using DNA technology, identified and arrested the East Valley Rapist, 22 years after his first known offense,” police said in a statement. John Daly is being held without bail.Mesa Police Department “With the utilization of SAKI (Sexual Assault Kit Initiative) funding, in February 2021 investigative efforts produced the name of John Daly III,” police said. “A history check showed that John had residency near each of the sexual assaults at the time they occurred.” Last month, DNA linked Daly to two of the assaults — and later, a third. The assaults took place in Mesa and Gilbert between October 1999 and November 2000, with Daly allegedly entering the victims’ homes through an unlocked door, an open bathroom window...
    The 10-year-old migrant boy filmed sobbing to a Border Control agent who rescued him has pleaded to stay in the United States in a heart-breaking phone call with his uncle in Miami. Wilton Obregon appeared on the verge of tears at times as he talked to construction worker Misael Obregon Leiva. The boy could barely be heard amid the background noise of the shelter for unaccompanied migrant children in Brownsville, Texas, where he has been held since being picked up alone on an isolated track. He made his plea after Nicaragua formally requested the U.S. return him to his home in an isolated mountain region of the country, where his father Lazaro Gutierrez and other family members live. The battle over the boy came as his kidnapped mother Meylin, 30, was released by the cartel who snatched her and Wilton - and is reported to have crossed the border into U.S. custody. Wilton Obregon, 10, made world news when a U.S. Border Patrol agent's bodycam footage was released. In a 10-minute phone call with Wilton, his uncle Misael Obregon Leiva...
    Around 200 migrants have been apprehended by Border Patrol near a small town in Texas this week, a report found, with images showing agents handing out blankets to those still cold after crossing the Rio Grande River in the early morning darkness.  The developments come as Vice President Kamala Harris continues to avoid holding a news conference about her duties to address migration to the southern border – a national issue remaining under the spotlight following the emergence of a heartbreaking video purportedly depicting a young migrant boy abandoned alone in the Texas desert.  "Can you help me? It is that I was coming with a group and they abandoned me and I do not know where they are at," the child was heard telling a Border Patrol agent in a barren area east of Rio Grande City.   Minors, on March 30, inside a pod at the Donna Department of Homeland Security holding facility in Texas.
