Border agents in the Big Bend Sector responded to the ranch house in Sierra Blanca, Hudspeth County, that had reportedly been burglarized and encountered three armed undocumented migrants, U.S. Customs and Border Protection said in a news release.
Sierra Blanca is located about 20 miles northeast of the Mexico border.

ICE Agents, Sheriffs Sue Biden Over ‘Unlawful’ Deportation Policy
A group of sheriffs and active Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers sued the Biden administration on July 1 for its “unlawful and unconstitutional” requirements regarding the arrest and deportation of illegal aliens.
The plaintiffs are seeking an injunction to a Feb. 18 memorandum that they say “commands ICE officers to violate the specific terms of federal immigration law.”
“The relief we are seeking is that the court order ICE and the Department of Homeland Security to simply follow the law,” lead attorney Kris Kobach said in Galveston after filing the suit at the federal courthouse on July 1. “To follow the specific laws … that require them to detain and deport certain illegal aliens.”
The lawsuit alleges that “many extremely dangerous illegal aliens who would have been detained prior to the February 18 Memorandum are now not being detained—against the wishes of the ICE officers seeking to detain them, and in violation of federal statutes requiring their detention and/or removal.”
Ever see one of these on a grave? It’s called a mortsafe.
They were invented as after the Murder Act of 1752, surgeons could only dissect the bodies of convicted murderers who were hung for their crimes. This meant only 30-45 bodies a year were ever available.
In order to be able to keep working, however, Scottish anatomist, Robert Knox, would pay for anybody who was brought to him regardless of the cause of death so he could examine it.
The problem then was people would break into graveyards and steal dead bodies and bring them to Knox.
The mortsafe was then invented to stop the bodies from being stolen. Up stepped Irish pair William Burke and William Hare, who heard of the value of the bodies and over a 10 month period in Edinburgh, killed 16 people and sold Knox the bodies.
When they were eventually caught, Hare was imprisoned and Burke was hanged. Burke was then ironically dissected and his skeleton is currently on display in the Anatomical Museum of the Edinburgh Medical School.

San Jose’s plan to become first U.S. city to make firearm owners pay for gun violence
Gunowners would be ordered to carry insurance and pay an annual fee if a new ordinance is approved in September
San Jose is on its way to becoming the first U.S. city to require gun owners to carry liability insurance and pay the city a fee to spare taxpayers the financial toll of gun violence.
And because this particular gun control measure has never been tried before, it’s stirring up a lot of buzz across the nation.
“While the Second Amendment certainly protects the right to own a gun, it does not mandate that taxpayers subsidize the possession of those guns,” Mayor Sam Liccardo said during the City Council’s meeting Tuesday. “And we need a mechanism that will both compensate injured victims and take some of the burden off of taxpayers.”
But, contrary to many reports, San Jose leaders have yet to approve the proposed law.
Nevada casinos take in record $1.23B in winnings in May
Nevada’s tourism and gambling industry has come roaring back after the pandemic shuttered casinos and kept tourists away last year, with casinos setting a record in May by winning $1.23 billion.
It’s the highest single-month win in the state’s history, blowing past a $1.165 billion record set in October 2007.
The record win came before tourist-reliant Nevada on June 1 lifted virtually all restrictions on crowds and business capacity statewide. The casino’s take has topped $1 billion for three months in a row. Even before the restrictions lifted in June, tourists were again flocking to Las Vegas casinos, and most casino resorts were allowed to return to 100% capacity.
In May, 2.9 million people visited Las Vegas, according to the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, an increase of nearly 12% from April. Hotel rooms were about 71% occupied on average over the month, with weekend occupancy climbing to 88%.
The visitation rates and hotel occupancy rates still have a way to go to match levels set in the same period in 2019.
