SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods. This column is a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper from JWR. Our goal is to educate our readers, to help them to recognize emerging threats, and to be better prepared for both disasters and negative societal trends. You can’t mitigate a risk if you haven’t first identified a risk. In today’s column, more about illegal immigration.

Why Has Prepping Become So Popular With The Left?

Reader H.L. sent us the link to this article over at Citizen Watch Report: Why Has Prepping Become So Popular With The Left? JWR’s Comments:  The two key (and quite overt) messages from the filmmakers to the viewers of the movie Leave The World Behind are: 1.)  Don’t trust white people, and 2.) You don’t need to prepare for WTSHTF if you just break into the unoccupied home of someone who did prepare. This underscores my long-standing admonition: Never buy a retreat in a resort town!

Texas Lawmen Can Now Arrest Illegal Migrants

Over at the Trending Politics site: Texas Signs Law Allowing The Arrest Of Illegal Border Migrants.  The article begins:

“Texas Governor Greg Abbott has enacted legislation permitting state law enforcement officials to detain individuals suspected of unauthorized entry across the U.S.-Mexico border.

Under Senate Bill 4, individuals who enter or attempt to enter Texas from a foreign nation at any location other than a lawful port of entry, and who are classified as aliens as per federal law, would be committing a Class B misdemeanor.

This offense can lead to up to 180 days in jail and/or a maximum fine of $2,000. The bill elevates this to a state-jail felony, punishable by 180 days to two years in a state jail and an optional fine of up to $10,000, if the individual has been previously convicted of illegal entry from a foreign nation.”
