  • Julian Castro “Escorts” Asylum Seekers Over Border. It Doesn’t End Well

    You almost have to give Julian Castro credit. In a crowded field of presidential candidates, the guy just keeps on going like the Energizer bunny and doesn’t let his almost nonexistent presence in the polls slow him down. His latest stunt to draw media attention came in the form of a trip south of the border where he rounded up a group of asylum seekers who were hoping to get a pass from the Remain in Mexico program and be allowed to await their hearing in the United States. The way it wound up playing out, however, wasn’t according...

    During the Democrat debate Thursday night, Jorge Ramos challenged Joe Biden on his immigration record, particularly his past support for a border wall, and the Obama-Biden administration's record on deportations. "Why should Latinos trust you?" Ramos asked."What Latinos should look at is ... comparing [Trump] to [Obama] is outrageous," Biden said. "Number one, we didn't lock up people up in cages, we didn't separate families... we didn't do all of those things."Umm, Joe... yes, you did.

    <p>Back in June, many on the left pooh-poohed Trump's deal with Mexico to avoid tariffs in exchange for stronger efforts by Mexico to curb the flow of immigrants through their country into the United States. While the positive impact of that deal became apparent almost immediately, we now have a much clearer picture of the impact of the deal Trump struck with Mexico as border apprehensions have plummeted the past three months.</p>

    Some good news on the border. Apprehensions of illegal immigrants dropped again in August, making this the third straight month of decline. From Politico: Border Patrol arrested roughly 51,000 migrants in August, a 30 percent drop from the previous month…Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan addressed the falling arrests Wednesday during a press conference with Trump at the Oval Office. McAleenan said border arrests had been more than halved in August compared with the May peak, but told reporters that finalized statistics were being compiled and would be released next week.Trump praised Mexico’s recent efforts to halt migration during...

    Authorities are investigating claims that migrant men in Tijuana, Mexico, are attempting to buy children from poor, single mothers living at shelters so they increase their chances of being released from border detention centers sooner and gaining asylum in the U.S. The San Diego Union-Tribune has reported that women staying at Tijuana shelters fear their children will be kidnapped after seeing groups of men approaching mothers offering to purchase their children to expedite their process of seeking asylum. When children are accompanied by adults crossing the border, current U.S. law stipulates that they ought to be held in custody temporarily,...

    Immigration detention centers need to act fast to bring their standards up to par for the hundreds of children forced into their care.Whether it’s the border wall, President Trump’s recent remarks, or Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez latest tweet calling immigration detention centers “concentration camps,” it’s easy to focus on the wrong arguments about immigration. It all detracts from a more immediate problem: how the U.S. government is treating the influx of migrants on the southern border. Immigration detention centers need to act fast to bring their standards up to par for the hundreds of children forced into their care.Arguing over definitions...

    I mean I guess we shouldn’t be shocked she said this. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) has said almost every terrible thing under the sun. She’s peddled anti-Semitic tropes. She’s rooted against our troops during our intervention in Somalia in the early 1990s. She’s failed miserably to identify that those who committed the 9/11 attacks were radical Muslim terrorists, instead, she trivialized this heinous act as one where “some people did something.” So, when she thinks that we should have open borders, sadly, it’s not as shocking as some of the other trash she’s spewed n recent months. Omar said that...

    Well, shocker, Democrats are wrong about the border crisis again. It may come as a surprise to these left-wingers, but when there are hordes of people trying to enter the U.S. through our southern border, many of whom are succeeding, terror groups will take notice and draft plans to get their operatives in by similar means. And yes, it appears the Islamic State has arrived in Central America—and I don’t think it’s for some rest and relaxation on the beaches. Luckily, Nicaraguan  Security forces captured them (via Reuters): I’ve been angrily assured that this sort of thing never happens and...

    Competing narratives on how immigrant children are being treated in border facilities continue to emerge as a group of evangelical pastors and Democrat members of Congress reflected Monday on what they saw during separate border visits. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, told reporters Monday that he is saddened by the “misinformation” published in the media last week about the conditions facing detained migrant children temporarily held at Customs and Border Protection facilities.On a press call, he explained that he, too, was shocked last week after reports based on lawyers’ interviews with 60 detained children highlighted...

    We’ve been hearing stories for quite some time now about illegal aliens showing up at the southern border with children in tow who turn out to not be their own. In some cases, it’s possible that they may be friends of the family, but in others, they are clearly either trafficking them across the border or hoping to use them as a get out of jail free card. Of course, we’re also regularly assured by Democrats and their friends in the media this either doesn’t happen or is so rare as to be discounted.Now, however, their tune may need...

    Democrats have gone a long way to create chaos at the border. They've denied necessary funds for law enforcement to pay for humane conditions in detention camps during a border surge. They've nullifed any meaning to border law. It's all a politically cynical bid to Blame Trump. Thus far, the issue has been viewed and reported as a public relations issue for President Trump, with reports of children brought to the U.S. illegally now in detention without soap or toothbrushes. The media and the Democrats have been dining out on it, calling Trump a heel. There's more than that, of course. There are the...
  • NPR FACT CHECK: Trump Wrongly States Obama Administration Had Child Separation Policy

    President Trump repeated a false claim to reporters Tuesday, wrongly blaming the Obama administration for instituting a policy in which children were separated from their parents at the Southern border. "I'm the one that stopped it," Trump said. "President Obama had child separation." Trump made the comments during a photo op prior to his meeting with Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi. Asked whether the administration was considering reinstating the policy of child separation to curb the number of migrant families crossing the border from Mexico, Trump responded that "We're not looking to do it." But he seemed to imply it was...

    President Trump has had enough of the liberal New York officials who are waging a legal campaign against him. Former state attorney general Eric Schneiderman filed a lawsuit against Trump last year accusing him of using the Trump Foundation for his own political purposes. The president agreed to dissolve the foundation's assets to other nonprofit organizations, but New York leaders continued to probe. When Letitia James was elected last year after Schneiderman resigned over sexual misconduct allegations, she promised to use her new power specifically to target Trump. And that she has. In her first year on the job, she has...

    Is it possible that President Trump's deal with Mexico on halting the border surge is working? According to Axios: "The U.S. Border Patrol apprehended roughly 87,000 unauthorized immigrants [sic] in the month of June, a decline compared to the steep figures reported over the last three months, according to leaked internal Department of Homeland Security data." Why it matters: The drop enables acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan to tout that the June 7 deal the U.S. struck with Mexico to stem the flow of migration is working — the kind of cover he needs to fend off attacks from prominent...

    ... We should focus most on those who have less of a personal commitment to the abusive policies that are being carried out. Testimony from trials and truth commissions has revealed that many atrocity perpetrators think of what they’re doing as they would think of any other day job. While the leaders who order atrocities may be acting out of strongly held ideological beliefs or political survival concerns, the so-called “foot soldiers” and the middle men and women are often just there for the paycheck. This lack of personal investment means that these participants in atrocities can be much more...

    Former Vice President Adlai Stevenson once said, “A hypocrite is the kind of politician who would cut down a redwood tree, then mount the stump and make a speech for conservation.” It’s hard to imagine a better analogy than that for the way the current Democratic Party pontificates on the border crisis. For 40 years the Democrats have done everything in their power to encourage and facilitate illegal immigration. They have relentlessly blocked any attempts to address and prevent the current rise of illegal immigration at our southern border. They have incentivized illegal immigration in every conceivable manner. Those who...

    Angie Valeria had not celebrated her second birthday when she drowned on Sunday, grasping her father as they tried to reach the United States. The picture of tiny Valeria, face down, with her arm still around her dead father's neck, has become the heartbreaking symbol of the Trump administration's cruel -- and failing -- policies at the southern border. Valeria and her father, Oscar Alberto Ramirez, are more than a statistic because we have their picture. But they are not an anomaly.

    As you read last evening, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi abandoned her foolish fight over the border crisis relief bill, "reluctantly" agreeing to approve the Senate's bipartisan legislation.  House Democrats had been playing games over President Trump's (New York Times-endorsed) $4.5 billion supplemental budget request for humanitarian aid and logistical support at the Souther border, stripping it out of previous legislation before finally passing a partisan and landmine-filled version of their own earlier this week.  The upper chamber, meanwhile, hammered out a reasonable compromise, which was supported by the president.  Mitch McConnell put the House-passed bill on the floor for an...

    I covered earlier how the left is finally waking up to the reality that there is indeed a crisis at the United States border in terms of illegal immigration. One could argue that while both sides now agree that there is a major issue, the left seems to think that the main problem is that the U.S. is not swinging the door wide open for all illegal aliens while conservatives argue that the problem is we do not have a wall to prevent illegal immigrants from coming into the country whatsoever. Regardless, the mainstream media's coverage of the situation during...
