In the past six days, the Texas border town of Eagle Pass has seen a swarm of humanity descend upon them, as nearly 10,000 migrants have been apprehended. The town, which was once a more quiet spot on the border, has become the epicenter for the current crisis.
According to Breitbart News, these Eagle Pass numbers dwarf the amount of interactions in the Rio Grande Valley Border Sector. This is over the same six-day period, ending July 9. The apprehension rate in and around Eagle Pass, which resides in the Del Rio sector, was 1,500 a day.
The migrants that make up these border apprehensions do not just hail from Latin America. While a large contingent were single adults from Venezuela and Cuba, more than 100 were identified as Iranians. Travel conditions have worsened, as summer temperatures sky-rocket, causing heat-related illness among the migrant population.
The volume of migrants has also put a tremendous amount of pressure on detention facilities. Overcrowding is a constant problem as 2,000 people are forced into a facility designed for 500.
Of the 10,000 migrants arrested, only 3,000 have been deported to Mexico. The rest have been processed and released to a non-government shelter where they are provided transportation to go deeper into the country.
While many of the migrant groups consist of young, single adults, a record amount of unaccompanied children have been taken into custody.

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
