    President-elect Donald Trump's transition team is engaged in active discussions with the US Army Corps of Engineers and Interior Department to begin planning a wall along the Mexican border, including how specific environmental laws could get in the way, CNN has learned. A US official with knowledge of a visit last last month to the Interior Department -- which oversees most federal lands and major environmental laws -- said the transition team was particularly interested in finding out "how long it would take" to build the wall given potential legal obstacles. "It seems clear they were trying to size up...

    Full title:Shootout at U.S. Consulate in Nuevo Laredo Part of Cartel-Terrorist Attack Plan for Trump Inauguration A deadly shootout at the construction site of the new American Consulate occurred this week in a Mexican border town where Islamic terrorists and drug cartels plan to launch attacks against the U.S. during the period surrounding the presidential inauguration, high-level government sources tell Judicial Watch. An unknown number of gunmen fired multiple rounds adjacent to the new U.S. Consulate compound in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico, a crime-infested city in the state of Tamaulipas that lies directly across from Laredo, Texas.

    MEXICO CITY (REUTERS) - Mexico’s new Foreign Minister Luis Videgaray said on Tuesday (Jan 10) there is no way his country will pay for the wall that US President-elect Donald Trump has pledged to build on the United States’ southern border to keep out illegal immigrants. “There’s no way that could happen,” Videgaray said on Mexican television a few days after his appointment. “There are no circumstances...not even the best possible trade deal, investments, support which would justify taking a step that would violate the dignity of Mexicans to such an extent.” The wall has been a bone of contention...

  • Trump May Pursue Border Wall Without New Bill

    Congressional Republicans and Donald Trump's transition team are exploring whether they can make good on Trump's promise of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border without passing a new bill on the topic, officials said Thursday. Under the evolving plan, the Trump administration would rely on existing legislation authorizing fencing and other technology along the southern border. Congress would be asked to ensure that enough money is appropriated to take additional new steps — but would not pass a stand-alone bill authorizing a big new wall. The potential approach was confirmed by two congressional officials and a senior transition official with...

    These days it has most certainly become chic for the modern liberal to throw about accusations of racism. Although this type of race-baiting has been going on for a number of years now, it became more noticeable during the 2016 U.S. presidential election. When these liberals accuse Donald Trump of being racist, they had better be careful for one specific reason: A leaked video from 2008 shows that during President Obama’s first campaign, he was also concerned about border security, and he even suggested a wall! Now, there is just one dominant question anti-Trump individuals need to digest:

    FULL TITLE: With Malicious Intent – Obama’s Homeland Security Shuts Down Aerial Surveillance of Southern Border… In what appears to be a transparent effort to allow unchecked border crossing in the final two month of his presidency, President Obama’s DHS has shut down the aerial surveillance program. Texas Governor Greg Abott goes one step further saying President Obama is doing everything he can to “open the border” for illegals…

Did I say insane? I meant treasonous.</p>

    House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said Congress isn’t waiting for President-elect Donald Trump’s swearing-in to move on the issue of immigration, saying the wheels are in motion on prepping legislation needed to build Mr. Trump’s pledged U.S.-Mexico border wall. Mr. McCarthy said he has helped put a team in place “so when we’re sworn in … we are able to move the legislation needed to start building the wall.” Mr. McCarthy also said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who said earlier this week that Chicago will always be a “sanctuary city” for illegal immigrants, should focus on the security of his...

    Friday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) was optimistic about the prospects of President-elect Donald Trump being able to follow through with his campaign promises of a border wall. Gohmert told “Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy that there has been money already appropriated for the wall and that he was excited about the prospects of Trump “actually following the law.” “It’s amazing what you can get Congress to do when you lead and push them in the right direction,” Gohmert said. “And actually, you know, we had appropriated money during the Bush administration that...

    Now that Donald Trump has beaten Hillary Clinton to become the 45th president of the United States, one of his campaign promises has been an immediate hot point of attention, namely the wall between Mexico and the United States. But how would it be financed? Mexico is hardly likely to fund it and said as much.So, could a crypto currency solution come to the rescue and help address matters around the 2,000 miles long border between the US and Mexico? Different types of defenses now span about 670 miles of it, so there would clearly be more work to be...

    In the small southern market town of Molcaxac, 650 miles (1050 km) from the U.S. border, Alicia Villa is praying to God that Republican candidate Donald Trump does not become the next president of the United States. Over the past two decades, as Mexico's rural economy stalled, Molcaxac and hundreds of towns like it became dependent on dollars sent by relatives who made the perilous journey north, a lifeline she fears will be cut by a Trump White House. Villa, 65, said funds sent by a daughter working illegally as a house cleaner in Sacramento, California have supported her family...

    Amid an “overwhelming” surge of illegal immigration at the southwest border a group of Republican lawmakers on Thursday cautioned the Department of Homeland Security against limiting its contact with Congress before the election. “[I]t has come to light through information provided to our Committees that the Department may have issued a directive to limit engagement with Congress until immediately before the election,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson. “Any such directive, if issued, would be an unacceptable political ploy and a serious infringement of Congress’ oversight authority under the Constitution.” ...more...

    Four Republican lawmakers Thursday sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson demanding a crackdown on the southwest border, where U.S. border agents have been trying to deal with a massive surge in illegal border crossings. The letter notes that border crossings are up and that the the department is currently detaining a record 40,000 illegal immigrants. “The onslaught of illegal immigration reflects continued efforts by aliens from Central America — El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala — to overwhelm our limited resources at the border, which inevitably results in the release of tens of thousands of removable...
