Burrito shop shuts after being accused of stealing culture

  • ‘Awww, so you nice ladies stole hard-working and low-income Mexican women’s tortilla recipes and are now turning a profit. That’s not white basic privilege at all. #disgusting,’ Alicia Dominguez
  • ‘Now that you all boldly and pretty f***ing unapologetically stole the basis of these women’s livelihoods, you can make their exact same product so other white ppl (sic) don’t have to be inconvenienced of dealing with a pesky brown middle woman getting in their way. Great job,’ Shauna MacKinnon
  • ‘Stealing is in their nature so I’m not surprised. They’re not creative so they had to get the idea from someone,’ Tee McNeill


( Daily mail ) Two white women have been forced to close their pop-up burrito shop after they were accused of cultural appropriation.

Kali Wilgus and Liz ‘LC’ Connelly opened Kooks Burritos in Portland, Oregon, after taking a trip to Puerto Nuevo, Mexico, last December.

For the first few months, the weekend pop-up shop housed in an taco truck was a smash hit. It gained so much popularity, a local weekly newspaper decided to profile the entrepreneurial duo.

But that’s when the trouble started for Wilgus and Connelly, after quotes they gave to the Williamette Week led to them being accused of stealing their success.

Explaining their trip, Connelly told the newspaper: ‘I picked the brains of every tortilla lady there in the worst broken Spanish ever, and they showed me a little of what they did.

‘In Puerto Nuevo, you can eat $5 lobster on the beach, which they give you with this bucket of tortillas. They are handmade flour tortillas that are stretchy and a little buttery, and best of all, unlimited.

‘They wouldn’t tell us too much about technique, but we were peeking into the windows of every kitchen, totally fascinated by how easy they made it look. We learned quickly it isn’t quite that easy.’

Those comments were latched onto by a food blog in the Portland Mercury, which accused Wilgus and Connelly of ‘preying’ on the women they met in Mexico.

Muslim convert John Rene Rockschiil entered the Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City on Monday and stabbed the priest in the neck at the altar while officiating a mass.


Actuall via Jihad Watch:

A priest who officiated at the Metropolitan Cathedral in Mexico City was stabbed last Monday at 6:00 pm by a middle-aged man who went up to the altar and stabbed a blade into his neck.

According to the archdiocese, the attacker, named John Rene Rockschiil, of Muslim faith according to the Mexican media, was arrested after carrying out the attack with a knife.

After calling the police, a Condor unit from the capital’s public security secretariat arrived in the vicinity of the cathedral, located in the historic city center, to transfer the clergyman to San Miguel Chapultepec hospital.

Some of the testimonies of the parishioners who were in the cathedral emphasize that some of those present detained the 35-year-old man, in addition to providing medical care to the parish priest Miguel Angel Machorro, until the aid services arrived.

Illegal immigration across the southwestern border is down a stunning 76 percent since President Trump was elected, with the flow of children and families dropping even faster as analysts say the administration’s commitment to enforcing the law has changed the reality along the border.

Overall apprehensions by the Border Patrol dropped to just 11,129 in April, according to numbers released Tuesday, marking the lowest monthly total for any month in decades.

The number of unaccompanied illegal immigrant children nabbed at the border dropped below 1,000 — a level not seen since before the surge that bedeviled President Obama during most of his second term.


Even before a foot of Mr. Trump’s planned border wall is built or any more agents are hired, the threat of being sent home has forced would-be migrants to rethink making the journey, officials said.

“A lot of the discussion about changes in our enforcement policy and the way we are going about doing business, we believe that has deterred people,” said Homeland Security spokesman David Lapan. “When you get here, it is likely you are going to get caught. You are going to be returned to your country.”

That approach marks a major change from the Obama administration, which struggled to handle the flow of illegal immigrants from Central America.


Under Obama-era policies, hundreds of thousands of children and families from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras were caught and then released into the interior of the U.S., where they often failed to show up for their deportations and instead disappeared into the shadows.

Mr. Trump has vowed quick deportations and has called for expanding detention facilities to hold illegal immigrants in the meantime, preventing them from slipping away.

“This is messaging, backed up by actual enforcement and policy changes that people are responding to,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy studies director at the Center for Immigration Studies. “The continued drop suggests this is more than just a fluke.”

Border apprehensions are considered a rough yardstick for the overall flow of illegal immigration, so a drop in arrests is believed to reflect an overall drop in the flow of people.

At its peak early in the last decade, the Tucson sector, which is just one of nine regions along the border, regularly recorded more than 70,000 apprehensions in a single month. Last month, Tucson reported fewer than 1,500 arrests.

Activity has shifted to the Rio Grande Valley sector in Texas, with nearly 4,000 apprehensions in April. Still, that’s a fraction of the 22,000 apprehensions recorded in October and fewer still than the nearly 40,000 arrests at the peak of the Central American surge in 2014.

Authorities expect a seasonal uptick in border apprehensions this month and next but are waiting to see the degree of any seasonal surge.

One indication that the change is a result of immigration enforcement rather than better border security is the flow of drugs, which remains high.

Mr. Lapan said that while seizures of marijuana are down, hard drugs including heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine are up. Like migration, a rise in seizures is believed to signal an increase in the overall flow.

The White House released preliminary guidelines for the Mexican border wall promised by President Trump on the campaign trail.

The wall must be 30 feet high while looking imposing from the Mexican side and tasteful from the American side, Pete Hegseth reported.

The Department of Homeland Security began soliciting bids for the wall, adding that they will accept plans for both concrete and non-concrete walls


The Washington Times reported that President Trump’s budget plan allows for a partition to span as far as 2,000 miles along the border.

Blueprints must prove the bidder’s proposed wall would take at least an hour to break through.

The Times also reported that some of the 700 companies registered as possible contractors for the wall could face some backlash in the future.

Cities like Berkeley, Calif. have said they will essentially ignore future bids from companies involved in building Trump’s wall.

Jessica Valeria


( Sun.co.uk ) A 15-YEAR-OLD killed after having a wooden stake plunged into her eye could have been attacked in a bizarre satanic ritual, police sources claim.

Jessica Valeria was found half-naked and brutally beaten with a wooden broomstick embedded in her right eye in Torreon in the northern state of Coahuila, Mexico.

Sources close to the investigation told Vanguardia there were indications it could have been a satanic rite – but the Attorney General’s Office denied it was probing that line specifically.

Three 17-year-olds – two boys and one girl – have been arrested in connection with the horror attack last Satudray in the Loma Real colony.

A source told Vanguardia that investigators found “indications of what could be a satanic rite as the motive of crime”.

They said the fatal blow had been “forceful with extreme violence”, and that other markings on Miss Valeria’s body suggested it had been a satanic act.

Trump warned Mexican President Nieto to get control over the “bad hombres down there” or the United States may have to take action. The Mexican government said the account was not accurate.
The AP reported:

President Donald Trump threatened in a phone call with his Mexican counterpart to send U.S. troops to stop “bad hombres down there” unless the Mexican military does more to control them, according to an excerpt of a transcript of the conversation obtained by The Associated Press.

The excerpt of the call did not detail who exactly Trump considered “bad hombres,” nor did it make clear the tone and context of the remark, made in a Friday morning phone call between the leaders. It also did not contain Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto’s response.

Still, the excerpt offers a rare and striking look at how the new president is conducting diplomacy behind closed doors. Trump’s remarks suggest he is using the same tough and blunt talk with world leaders that he used to rally crowds on the campaign trail.

A White House spokesman did not respond to requests for comment. The Mexican government said the account was not accurate.

The phone call between the leaders was intended to patch things up between the new president and his ally. The two have had a series of public spats over Trump’s determination to have Mexico pay for the planned border wall, something Mexico steadfastly refuses to agree to.



Border Patrol seizes $3M from two cars heading to Mexico

Posted on


This undated photo provided by U.S. Customs and Border Protection shows cash seized by the U.S. Border Patrol who says it's seized more than $3 million that was being smuggled from the U.S. into Mexico.

The U.S. Border Patrol says over $3 million has been seized after it was found on Tuesday inside two cars in Escondido, California.

It’s the largest cash seizure ever made by the Border Patrol in San Diego County.

Officials say they pulled over a Kia Forte that was speeding, finding nearly $34,000 in vacuum-sealed bundles in the center console.

A second car raced away but was found abandoned while the driver was found hiding in some brush. Over $3 million was found in cardboard boxes inside the trunk of the Volkswagen Passat, officials say.

Both drivers pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to federal currency-smuggling charges.

The cash was being smuggled from the U.S. into Mexico.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
