re the Democrats really going to try to get rid of ICE? Are they foolish or just plain ridiculous? It would be the same if any prisoners in our institutions escaped and we never tried to apprehend them. We need ICE to protect the interior of our country, they need to apprehend anyone who has broken the laws of U.S.A. If any American breaks any of our traffic laws and is cited by a police officer, they must then make an appearance in a court of law. If they don’t then a bench warrant is issued for their arrest, and once apprehended, they are arrested. Is illegal entry into the United States less serious than breaking our traffic laws? I don’t think so. In order to stop or at least slow down illegal immigrants from entering our country, we must build the wall, even if it isn’t a foolproof barrier. Without borders, we are no longer a country! Every other country in the world has borders and many of them have walls, even the Vatican has an enormous 40-foot wall. As reported by the Washington Examiner, DACA recipients are part of a group of

300,000 or so illegal immigrants who are feeding the recruitment efforts of MS-13, one of the deadliest, most dangerous gangs in the U.S. And now its members have spread to nearly half of all states — 22 to be exact. The gang, which was “stifled under President George W. Bush,” the news site noted, has committed crimes — many of them horrific — in at least that many states: Since 2012, 207 murders have been tied to the gang called “Mara Salvatrucha,” and there are more than 500 cases nationwide of MS-13 members being charged in major crimes, according to the report from the Center for Immigration Studies. What’s making the situation worse is that it is difficult to deport these predators because there are so many sanctuary cities around the country whose leaders have passed ordinances forbidding local police

from cooperating with federal immigration authorities — acts of defiance that have only grown stiffer in the age of President Trump, who has pledged along with Attorney General Jeff Sessions to crack down on these jurisdictions. The author of the center’s study, Jessica M. Vaughan, said the crackdown and deportation effort cannot happen quickly enough. In discussing how the gang managed to replenish itself and its ranks under the open-border policies of the Obama administration, she told the Washington Examiner: “This resurgence represents a very serious threat to public safety in communities where MS-13 has rebuilt itself. The resurgence is directly connected to the illegal arrival and resettlement of more than 300,000 Central American youths and families that has continued unabated for six years, and to a deprioritization of immigration enforcement in the interior of the country that occurred at the same time.” Researchers she supervised at the immigration reform think tank discovered ICE, continued on Page 7

BOLTS’ OFFENSE HAS PLEANTY OF POTENTIAL KEY FOR CHARGERS IS STAYING HEALTHY
by Art Garcia Jr.
ith the opening weekend of the 2018 NFL season less than a month away, we will now take a look where Pro Football Focus (PFF) ranked the Chargers offense for the upcoming season. Finishing 2017 ranked No. 4 overall — 24th in rushing yards (1595) and No. 1 in passing yards (4431) — PFF isn’t as high on the Chargers offense as it is on the team’s defensive unit. Led by Philip Rivers, Melvin Gordan and Keenan Allen, PFF believes the Chargers have enough firepower on offense to compete with any team in the NFL. The key is staying healthy throughout the year and how quickly their young players develop. Last year’s top pick, receiver Mike Williams, missed significant playing time dealing with back issues and secondround pick Forrest Lamp, their promising guard from Western Kentucky, missed his entire rookie campaign due to a torn ACL he suffered in training camp. Here is a look at the rankings with an inside look from PFF analysts Steve Palazzolo and Mike Renner.
Top Quarterbacks, Steve Palazzolo
No. 8. Philip Rivers, Los Angeles Chargers. Entering his 15th NFL season, Rivers threw for 4,515 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2017 and his 10 interceptions and 18 sacks were his lowest since 2009 and 2007, respectively. Signed through 2019, if the 36-year-old Rivers remains healthy and produces similar stats look for him to sign a one final contract extension to keep him the Chargers QB through
FORENSIC TECHNOLOGY Careers: Forensic Technician “CSI” and Latent Fingerprint Examiner Continued education can lead to becoming a Criminalist or Forensic Scientist.
Expectations for the Chargers offense are high, led by receiver Keenan Allen.
2021. 2017 overall grade, rank: Philip Rivers, 80.4 (9th) Palazzolo: After an excellent 2013 season, Rivers slowly started a decline over the next three years, perhaps in part due to a terrible offensive line situation. He bounced back nicely last season, grading at 80.4 overall to rank ninth in the league. He was one of the league’s most accurate passers in the short (0-9 yard) range and he’s still a solid intermediate passer (1019- yard range), ranking eighth in PFF grading last season. Rounding out the AFC West: Derek Carr, Oakland Raiders (13) — 2017 overall grade, rank: 68.9 (22). Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs (25) — 2017 overall grade, rank: 72.6 (n/a)* Case Keenum, Denver Broncos (29) — 2017 overall grade, rank: 81.4 (8) *With just one start in 2017, Mahomes wasn’t listed amongst the top 32 quarterbacks.

Top Running Backs — Mike Renner
No. 15. Los Angeles Chargers. Setting career-highs in rushing yards (1105), receptions (58), receiving yards (476) and touchdown receptions (4) last season, Melvin Gordon established himself as an elite running back in the NFL. Although undrafted free agent Austin Eckeler looked impressive as a rookie last season, lack of depth could be a concern if Gordon gets injured. Northwestern rookie Justin Jackson (7th rnd) could be a player to keep your eye on. Starting RB overall grade, rank: Melvin Gordon, 72.2 (19th) Renner: Melvin Gordon has been blessed over the course of his NFL career with run-blocking that ranked 26th in 2017, 28th in 2016, and 31st in 2015. That may help explain his paltry yards per carry, but his grades and advanced stats have been solid over that span. Gordon’s 62 total broken tackles were the second most in the NFL last year. The rest of the AFC West: Kansas City Chiefs (4) Oakland Raiders (29) Denver Broncos (30).
Top Receiving Corps — Mike Renner
Henry, but their top-10 ranking still reflects the talent they’ve accrued at receiver. When healthy, Keenan Allen is one of the most unguardable receivers one-on-one. His 89.1 overall grade last year was the fifth best at the position. This unit will need Mike Williams to live up to his draft status in Year 2 though. Williams played all of 234 snaps last year due to injury. The rest of the AFC West: Kansas City Chiefs (2) Denver Broncos (15) Oakland Raiders (26).
Offensive Line Rankings — Mike Renner No. 23. Los Angeles Chargers. Ranked the worst offensive line in the AFC West, the hope is second-year guards Dan Feeney and Forrest Lamp play up to the high projections they had coming out of college. With veterans Okung (2017 Pro Bowl) and Barksdale at the tackle positions and free agent Mike Pouncey now anchoring center, both Rivers and Gordon should improve on the numbers they put up last season.
Projected starting lineup
• Left Tackle: Russell Okung, 77.4 overall grade • Left Guard: Dan Feeney, 48.5 • Center: Mike Pouncey, 46.5 • Right Guard: Forrest Lamp, 91.7* (2016 college grade) • Right Tackle: Joe Barksdale, 50.7 • 2017 season-end rank: 24th (+1) Renner: There is a lot of projection here with Dan Feeney and Forrest Lamp in Year 2 as well as Mike Pouncey, but it’s impossible to think things could get worse. Kenny Wiggins allowed the most pressures of any guard in the league last year
No. 9. Los Angeles Chargers. Led by Pro Bowl receiver and 2017 NFL Comeback Player of the Year Keenan Allen, expectations are high despite the season-ending injury to TE Hunter Henry. If second-year pro Mike Williams can live up to the hype of a first-round draft pick, Rivers will have plenty of fire power with veterans Travis Benjamin and Tyrell Williams in the fold. Yards per route run as a unit, rank: 1.57 (2nd).

‘THE MEG’ BRINGS RELIEF TO THE BEACH By Jeri Jacquin MilitaryPress
tarting with a bite in theaters from director Jon Turteltaub and Warner Bros. comes a reason to stay off the beach and sit in the theater to ride the wave of “The Meg.” Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) was an expert driver but on one mission he had to choose between two of his crewmen or a whole submarine full of wounded men when something attacks their vessel. Five years later that decision had career and marital consequences, but he seems to be doing fine living in Thailand. Out in the middle of the ocean, billionaire Morris (Rainn Wilson) is helicoptering onto a platform to see where his money is going. The Mana One research facility off the coast of China is still under construction with Zhang (Winston Chao), daughter Syuin (Bingbing Li) and crew consisting of Mac (Cliff Curtis), Jaxx (Ruby Rose), DJ (Page Kennedy), Heller (Robert Taylor) and Syuin’s eight year old daughter Meiying (Sophia Cai). Ready to go to the deepest part of the Marianna Trench, Suyin believes it is possible to go deeper and that a thermal layer separates our world for another ocean discovery. Sending sub driver Lori (Jessica McNamee), Toshi (Masi Oka) and The

Wall (Olafur Olafsson), they dive. Breaking through they are surprised by what they see and quickly become shocked when their sub comes under attack and communications are cut off. The last words they hear is from Lori saying, “Tell Jonas he was right!” Trying to put together a rescue plan, Mac brings up Jonas Taylor, saying he is really the only man who would take such a risk to rescue the three trapped in the sub. Off to Thailand Mac and Zhang go to convince Taylor that he is needed. After some

fast talking, Taylor arrives on the research platform and is immediately set to diving because Suyin took it upon herself to try and rescue her friends. Preparing to dive, Taylor meets Meiying and learns that 8-year-olds hear everything. Meeting up with Suyin, they too are immediately hit by something big and fast. Working together they manage to get their friends and get out and back to the platform. As they all regather their thoughts, Meiying comes face to face (thank goodness for very thick
plastic) with something that wants to let it be known it is there — a Megalodon. Discovering how it came to the surface, the crew knows they cannot let it get to a populated area. Hopping on a large ship, they take off looking for the Meg, and once again Taylor does the incredibly shocking — jumping into the water to tag the beast. Almost everyone believes the only thing to do is kill it, but Suyin wants to study it alive. Thinking they have stopped a disaster, there is an even bigger beast swimming in the water around them. Once it has made its point with the crew, the Meg heads toward the beaches that are littered with people like meaty human krill! Taylor and the crew are not about to stop trying to stop the biggest creature in the water that has only one goal — destruction! Statham as Taylor proves why we continue to love this guy! Of course, I can honestly say that the towel scene (you will know exactly what I’m talking soon) had the guys impressed and the gals drooling. Now with that out of the way, Statham has the perfect bad-boy swagger to play this role. The character gives zero-frakks about what people think of him and gives a stone face when someone tries to tell him what to do or not to do. He proves it THE MEG, continued on Page 7

AIRMEN, MARINES PARTNER TO GET THE MAIL OUT “All these boxes and care packages help a lot of people, like when companies that care about military members send us snacks and hygiene gear and stuff like that, it really helps people out,” Jones said. “So whenever the mail shows up and they get these care packages and you see their facial expressions, they love it.”
By Staff Sgt. Dana Cable 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing
NDISCLOSED LOCATION — The post office at the 407th Air Expeditionary Group helps thousands of service members stay in touch with loved ones everyday through the delivery of care packages and letters from home. Three Marines with Special Purpose Marine Air-Ground Task Force, Crisis Response-Central Command run the base post office alongside two U.S. Air Force personnel. “There is a lot of good with having the Air Force airmen here working with us,” said Staff Sgt. Maurice Jones, SPMAGTFCR-CC postal chief. The three Marines are deployed from Camp Pendleton, where they all perform postal duties at the same post office, but for the two new Air Force airmen working in the post office is entirely new to them. “I like it, it’s something different,” said Staff Sgt. Desiree Tuazon, 407th Expeditionary Force Support Squadron NCO in charge of postal services. “I’ve been doing commanders support staff my entire career and this is a great opportunity to do something different.” Tuazon admits it is a lot of work but it

keeps her busy and the days go by fast. “This new crew of airmen just came in and got the ball rolling right away,” Jones said. “They want to learn everything, which helps because 90 percent of the customers we serve everyday are Air Force members. “At first it was intimidating coming to work with the Marines, but we worked to build a rapport with them,” said Tuazon, a native of the Philippines, and deployed from Beale Air Force Base. “We figured it’s a good opportunity for us to learn from the
Marines and see how they do things.” The post office processes more than 1,000 pieces of incoming mail each day. Once the mail truck arrives to the base, a forklift is used to move the 10 or more tri-walls from the truck to the post office. The mail is then sorted and distributed to airmen, Marines, sailors, coalition partners and civilians assigned to the base. “Postal is very important to the mission, the base and the people,” said Jones, a Philadelphia native.
(41) while Spencer Pulley allowed the most of any center (38). Simply getting those two out of the lineup has to be worth something. The rest of the AFC West: Oakland Raiders (7) Kansas City Chiefs (18) Denver Broncos (19). The Endzone: Pro Football Weekly (PFW) projects the Chargers finishing a top of the AFC West with a 12-4 record. PFW lists three Chargers — DE Joey Bosa (22), WR Keenan Allen (27) and CB Casey Hayward (39) — amongst its top Super 50 players regardless of position. With its Super Bowl odds at 22-1, the Chargers are No. 9 in PFW’s Preseason Power Rankings: “Keys to win: stay healthy, find a kicker, beat Kansas City.”

Laughs Blonde in disguise
Tired of constant blonde jokes, a blonde dyes her hair brown. She goes for a drive in the country and sees a shepherd herding his sheep across the road. “Hey, shepherd, if I guess how many sheep are here, can I keep one?” she asks. The shepherd agrees. She blurts out, “352!” The shepherd is stunned but keeps his word and allows her to pick a sheep. “I’ll take this one,” she says proudly. “It’s the cutest!” “Hey lady,” says the shepherd. “If I guess your real hair color, can I have my dog back?”
On the last day of kindergarten, all the children brought presents for their teacher. The florist’s son handed the teacher a gift. She held up the box and said, “I bet it’s some flowers!” “That’s right!” shouted the little boy. Then the candy store owner’s daughter handed the teacher a gift. She held up the box and said, “I bet it’s some chocolates!” “That’s right!” shouted the little girl. The next gift was from the liquor store owner’s son. The teacher held up the box and saw that it was leaking. She touched a drop with her finger and tasted it. “Is it wine?” she asked. “No,” the boy answered. The teacher
touched another drop to her tongue. “Is it champagne?” she asked. “No,” the boy answered. “What is it?” she said. “A puppy!”
A guy walks into a bar with his pet monkey. He orders a drink, and while he’s drinking, the monkey jumps all over the place, eating everything behind the bar. Then the monkey jumps on to the pool table and swallows a billiard ball. The bartender screams at the guy, “Your monkey just ate the cue ball off my pool
table — whole!” “Sorry,” replied the guy. “He eats everything in sight, the little bastard. I’ll pay for everything.” The man finishes his drink, pays and leaves. Two weeks later, he’s in the bar with his pet monkey, again. He orders a drink, and the monkey starts running around the bar. The monkey finds a maraschino cherry on the bar. He grabs it, sticks it in his behind, pulls it out and eats it. The bartender is disgusted. “Did you see what your monkey did now?” he asks. “Yeah,” replies the guy. “He still eats ev-

The doctor has just finished giving the young man a thorough physical examination. “The best thing for you to do,” the M.D. said, “is give up drinking and smoking, get to bed early and stay away from women.” “Doc, I don’t deserve the best,” said the patient. “What’s second best?”
After three years, the wife starts to think that their child looks different, so she decides to do a DNA test. She finds out that the child is actually from completely different parents. Wife: Honey, I have something very serious to tell you. Husband: What’s up? Wife: According to DNA test results, this is not our child. Husband: Well don’t you remember? When we were leaving the hospital, we noticed that our baby had a wet diaper and you said, “Honey, go change the baby, I’ll wait for you here.”
A man was traveling down a country road when he saw a large group of people outside a house. He stopped and asked a person why the large crowd was there. A farmer replied, “Joe’s mule kicked his mother-in-law and she died.” “Well,” replied the man, “she must have had a lot of friends.” “Nope,” said the farmer, “we all just want to buy his mule.”
