    ".....They’re very good at stopping any illegal alien prototypes. … I don’t know why we need prototypes, except that it’s all just a fakeout and the whole thing about building a wall is just ‘I’m going to get four years saying I’m going to build the wall and inspecting prototypes, but I’ll never actually build the wall.’ … No, it’s a ridiculous waste of time....."

How high it is … I mean, really? In a civilized society, we do something like that? As obnoxious as it is. You know, that’s a community there with a border running through it?

    Thousands of Gazans are planning to march towards Israel in what has been dubbed the “March of the Return” to begin on March 30. Ahmad al-Mudallal, a senior member of the Islamic Jihad terrorist group, described the demonstrations as a popular "referendum" that will demonstrate the adherence of the "Palestinian people" to the “right of return” and the resistance to the "plots" against the Palestinians. In an interview with the Hamas newspaper Felesteen, Mudallal said that the “Palestinian people” will go out to the borders and from there send a message to the world about the need to lift the...

    The brother of a murdered Border Patrol agent is calling on President Donald Trump to keep a promise he made on the campaign trail and reopen the "Fast and Furious" case. Brian Terry was killed in 2010 by an illegal immigrant with a weapon used in the botched "gun-walking" program Operation Fast and Furious. His brother, Kent Terry, tweeted at Trump on Saturday, asking him to "reopen the books" and get to the bottom of the scandal that cost his brother his life.

    A federal judge on Tuesday ruled against an environmental challenge to President Trump’s border wall, delivering a win to the Trump administration in a decision that allows construction plans to move forward. In a 101-page ruling, U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel wrote that both Congress and the executive branch “share responsibilities in protecting the country from terrorists and contraband illegally entering The case involved the Trump administration’s ability to ignore environmental laws in the construction of the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. The project had been challenged by several environmental groups and the state of California. The ruling will...

    Two Mexican opposition candidates on Sunday vowed to take a tougher line against U.S. President Donald Trump’s border wall, at events where they were selected by their parties to seek the presidency in a July 1 election. Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, 64, of the leftist Morena party holds a double-digit lead in recent polls although right-left coalition leader Ricardo Anaya has recently gained traction. Former finance minister Jose Antonio Meade, 48, nominated on Sunday by the ruling Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI), trails behind Lopez Obrador by as much as 20 points. Lopez Obrador told several hundred Morena supporters gathered at...

    Feminism and liberal hatred of themselves and America are guilty of murdering our political, social, cultural, and religious institutions. They are acting with deliberate malice of forethought, motive, means, and opportunity. Like larva burrowing up from the rotting carcass of their International Communist dream, they have co-opted the Soviets plan to destroy America from within. In this, they have succeeded beyond Lenin's wildest dreams to divide America by race, sex, class, ethnic background, and religion under the banner of diversity. Their weapons have been Multiculturalism and Politically correct abridgment of our speech, and the Democrat Party. Their cry has been...

They show up, they work two days and they leave," Poindexter said. His company is now being audited by ICE. "We've had somewhere between 5 to 10 percent of our workforce quit voluntarily just...
