Texas Grand Jury Overrides Judge Over Illegal Entry

Hundreds of illegal aliens crossed the border in the El Paso sector, and were charged with misdemeanor rioting. Somehow, a judge found there was no evidence, despite law enforcement having video and photos and eye witness reports

Migrants indicted in Texas over alleged border breach after judge dismissed charges

A Texas grand jury indicted more than 140 migrants on misdemeanor rioting charges Tuesday over an alleged mass attempt to breach the U.S.-Mexico border, a day after a judge threw out the cases.

No injuries were reported during the alleged breach on April 12 in El Paso, which authorities say began when someone in the group cut through a razor wire barrier. Mass arrests also followed a separate episode in the Texas border city in March.

On Monday, a county judge had thrown out the charges against those who were arrested this month, ruling there was insufficient probable cause. A public defender representing the migrants had argued there was not enough evidence and accused authorities of trying to make headlines.

“The citizens of El Paso, through the grand jury, essentially overruled the judge’s ruling and found probable cause to believe that the riots did occur,” El Paso County District Attorney Bill Hicks told reporters Tuesday.

The public defender is just doing their job. I’m not sure what’s going on with the judge, since they did, in fact, cross the border. Now, of course, the saying is that a grand jury could indict a ham sandwich. Now they have to prosecute.

If convicted, those charged could each face up to 180 days in county jail and a fine of up to $2,000. Those in jail still face federal charges, and Hicks said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents could still pick them up from jail to process them on an illegal entry offense.

At which point they would normally be turned over to federal authorities, usually ICE. Since they would now have a criminal record it would be very easy to quickly deport them under federal law. But, will Texas simply deport them under their own recently passed laws? Perhaps just say “time served, get out”?

    I followed the link to the story, and you know what I didn’t find therein? The judge’s name is not mentioned, which makes me wonder if he is Hispanic himself.

  2. unklc says:

    El Paso County is 80+% Hispanic, so it is a fair bet on the judge. Haven’t noticed anything in our local media.

    I got called to a fire about 10:00 Monday night. I was standing on the fire truck on the right front Fender position when a woman came out of a side street smashed into the vehicle. That sent me sailing through the air and I fell and smashed into a tree. I broke my right ankle in three places and got severe scratches brush burns and such on my right arm and side of my face.

    I spent all Monday night and most of yesterday in the hospital and got home I don’t know three yesterday afternoon. I’ve got two strips of titanium going up my ankle and 12 screws holding everything in the place. Of course I got a kiss all the way up beyond my knee. They gave me a boot so I can walk but I can’t walk for a few days at least.

    I’m not gonna be able to do much walking around until next week. I have Veronica and Catalina cooking me meals and everything so I’m alright. My mother of course is hysterical. It’s a real crappy thing is I’m not gonna be able to drive for a while and I love driving. Plus all I have is a Corvette and I don’t want Veronica driving around in it all the time.

    Sorry to inform Elwood I wasn’t killed in the accident maybe next time.

      Glad you survived!! Unlike you and Mr Dana I do not wish death on my fellow Americans.

      You also typed:

      Now that’s a full service doctor!! I hope he asked for your permission.

      Seriously, get well soon! It’s unlikely you’re as much a jerk as you come across online.

        I don’t wish death on my fellow Americans don’t say that. I do wish death on the enemies of america both foreign and domestic if you’re gonna count that. And Matt kiss was supposed to be cast I’m sure you realize that. Already have two signatures on the cast both in Spanish go figure. I’ll tell you though my ankle is killing me.

        • unklc says:

          LGB, sorry to hear about your injuries. Take it easy and follow the medicine man’s instructions. Our thoughts and prayers are with you for a rapid recovery.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          You have my sympathies. On consecutive years in high school I broke my right then my left ankle in basketball practice. In a cast 4 weeks in one case, 6 weeks in the other. Your injury is much more severe, requiring surgical stabilization.

          I suspect your death wishes on Americans depends on your definition of “enemies”. Do you have a short list of “enemies” of America whose deaths would benefit the nation?

          Of the 40 treason cases charged since the founding of the U.S., only 13 resulted in a conviction, and only three people have been executed for it. Ethel and Julius Rosenberg died in the electric chair in 1953 for spying for the USSR. Since then, only one person indicted for treason — Adam Gadahn, in 2006, for making propaganda videos for al-Qaeda was killed in an airstrike before he could be brought to trial.

          President Obama authorized the killings of Anwar al-Awlaki, his 16 year old son, Abdulrahman al-Awlaki and Samir Khan – all 3 US citizens in Yemen – accused of inciting al-Qaeda’s murderous designs against America.

            Thanks Karen (aka Rimjob). Haven’t seen such a desperate attempt at seeking attention since that Crackhead Barney character.

            And the OBSESSIVE little Foreskin never fails to respond!!

            We suspect you ARE as much a jerk-off as you come across online! Little man syndrome?

    • H says:

      do you think it might have been intentional? muslims?
      commies? SOROS?

  4. H says:

    OMG !! The migrants have now equipped themselves with WIRE CUTTERS
    First they learned that common cordless saws can cut through Trump’s fabulous wall in minutes, and now they have learned that razor wire can be the it with wire cutters
    ??? Didn’t Trump promise us all that the Great Wall would be made of hardened concrete?

    Dana the judge that freed the alleged rioters” was overwhelmingly elected by his county voters His name was Ruben Morales.
    Local rules
    Locals rule

  5. H says:

    NYC migrant shelter population down to 60000
    From high of 90000.
    Minimum wage at 16 dollars. Still have a few pizza joints selling a slice for 1$ but most have “skyrocketed” the price to $1.50

    • James Lewis says:


      So what happened to the 3000 illegal aliens? Turn to dust? Move into other free housing?

      Inquiring minds want to know.

      • L.G.Brandon!, L.G.Brandon! says:

        James Lewis, I believe you meant 30,000 illegal aliens correct? And I would imagine that turned into 300,000 Democrat voters, all living at 1 address. In fact they may be squatters. I imagine this year’s elections gonna be loaded with Democrat squatters. Millions of them.

        Dana the judge that freed the alleged rioters” was overwhelmingly elected by his county voters His name was Ruben Morales.

        so the judge isn’t the problem the thousands of moron voters in his county is the problem. Thanks for clearing that up for us.

    “A judge:”??? WHAT JUDGE” NAME! PHOTOS! ADDRESS! These traitors need to be totally identified to the American public so when the time comes(and it’s coming), real American citizens will know who and where they are.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      Yes! We need the NAMES! PHOTOS! ADDRESSES! of all those who have opposed the great Donald the Great, the savior of America and the world. When Mr Donald is reinstated to his rightful throne we real American citizens can start the purge of the traitors!! The penalty for treason is DEATH!! The penalty of perversion is DEATH!!

      The traitors want to grab your guns so you won’t be able to kill them “when the time comes(and it’s coming)”.
