    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will begin building prototypes for President Trump's proposed wall along the Mexican border this summer, authorities said on Tuesday. Agency officials said at a news briefing that the department is ready to begin testing designs on land that is already owned by the government. Four to eight designs will be built and tested, but officials didn't say when the process would actually begin. “We own that land, have access to it and it’s a good place to start testing in a real-world environment,” acting deputy commissioner Ronald D. Vitiello told reporters at the briefing....
  • The Surprising Factor for Immigrant Success

    Try a thought experiment: Consider immigrants in the U.S. from Algeria, Israel and Japan and rank them, from highest to lowest, by educational attainment. Here’s the correct order, according to data from the Census Bureau: Algerians have average schooling of 14.7 years, followed by Israelis with 14.5 years, and Japanese with 14.3. Surprised? Consider an additional fact: Algerians represent about 1 in 2,500 immigrants in the U.S., whereas Israelis are 1 in 350 and Japanese 1 in 100. Here’s another counterintuitive result: The average educational level in Mexico, 8.5 years, is almost twice that of India, 4.4 years. Yet Indian...
  • ‘I meant to harm those people’: Toronto woman who pledged allegiance to ISIS appears in court

    A 32-year-old woman charged with uttering death threats while allegedly armed with a knife at a Toronto store before pledging allegiance to the Islamic State group earlier this month told a courtroom Monday that she would attempt to do it “again and again” if released. “I meant to harm those people,” Rehab Dughmosh told Justice Kimberley Crosbie through an Arabic interpreter during a court appearance. “I reject all counsel here. I only believe in Islamic Sharia law. I would like to revoke my Canadian citizenship that I received. I don’t want to have any allegiance to you.” Toronto police responded...
  • Illegal Immigrants in Mexico Are Now Using Uber to Cross Border Points Undetected

    Uber may be assisting in illegal immigration, some Mexican officials claim. Arnulfo Leon Campos of Mexico’s National Institute of Migration said that transporters of undocumented immigrants are using the private ride-sharing service to cross border points without being detected. “Traffickers of people going to the United States diversify their operations and now use private vehicle services like Uber to transport undocumented people,” he said. The statements were made last week after four Uber cars were stopped in the state of Zacatecas on their way to Durango. Cases like these have become more common, officials said, as it becomes increasingly complicated...

    Police officer stabbed in neck at Michigan airport by suspect who yelled 'Allahu Akbar' in possible act of terrorism A police officer was stabbed in the neck on Wednesday at a Michigan airport by a Canadian-born suspect who yelled "Allahu Akbar" in a possible act of terrorism. Authorities say the officer, identified by local news outlets as Lt. Jeff Neville, is in stable condition. A witness told the Flint Journal he was dropping off his daughter at Bishop International Airport when he saw the injured officer. "The cop was on his hands and knees bleeding from his neck," Ken Brown...

    Ann Coulter was a big supporter of then-candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 campaign, but so far she's been underwhelmed by the Trump presidency. On Friday, Coulter unleashed a series of tweets, ripping Trump for his lack of progress on building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, addressing illegal immigration and halting the flow of Middle Eastern refugees into our country....

  • Solar Panels on the Wall?

    Scott Adams' Blog ^ | June 7, 2017 | Scott Adams
    Axios is reporting that President Trump suggested putting solar panels on the new Wall with Mexico. The article wonders where the idea came from: Where this idea might come from: A proposal to cover the wall with solar panels was among those submitted when the U.S. requested designs earlier this year, according to the AP. Companies winning contracts and asked to build prototypes may be announced this month. That’s one place it might have come from. But I consider it an obvious idea, which means the President might have come up with it himself. And when I say “obvious,” I...
  • Immigration Enforcement: Trump Steamrolls Ahead

    06/06/2017 10:37:30 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 15 replies ^ | 06/07/2017
    Democrats think they’ve come up with the perfect strategy to defeat President Trump and the GOP. Stonewall every one of his legislative initiatives while promoting a sham “Russia-Gate” investigation so that his administration is plagued with perpetual scandal. But, on one issue at least the Democrats’ strategy is in total shambles. Trump, relying heavily on his executive authority as president, has been moving full steam ahead to regain control over America’s borders. And to the chagrin of Democrats, his immigration policies are working. In just four months Trump has put forward a comprehensive package of enforcement measures that has already...
  • Oculus founder Palmer Luckey is developing border surveillance technology

    After last September’s revelations that Palmer Luckey donated $100,000 to a pro-Trump organization dedicated to spreading anti-Clinton memes, the Oculus founder disappeared from public view. He resurfaced in March following his departure from Facebook, and is now back in the spotlight with a new company that makes technology designed to monitor border crossings. Information on Luckey’s new startup comes from a New York Times article yesterday that cites three “people familiar” with the matter. The business reportedly uses the same kind of lidar tech found in self-driving cars for the surveillance of country borders and restricted areas such as military...

    In a speech otherwise laden with praise for President Trump, Rep. Roger Marshall broke ranks on immigration, questioning the feasibility of a mammoth border wall and saying mass deportation would wreck Kansas’ economy. Marshall represents Kansas’ 1st District, a sprawling, mostly rural and agrarian district that covers the western two-thirds of the state. He said the U.S. needs to revise its immigration policies and document those who come to the United States to work in the farms and feedlots....

    Every morning I wake up before 5am Eastern and switch on the TV to watch the early version of ″Fox & Friends″. Aside from enjoying my breakfast with the lovely Heather Childress, I learn what the ′Big News′ item is for the day ahead. The big topic this morning was a Midnight tweet on Twitter by President Donald Trump. The story is that he allegedly misspelled the word ′coverage′ when he wrote ′covfefe′ instead in a tweet about the negative press. As a Shaolin Master Abbott of the Temple of Trump Fu, I saw the true purpose of the...

    Barack Obama received a hero’s welcome when he reunited with Angela Merkel for the first time since leaving office, calling on the audience to engage in democracy and telling the tens of thousands in Berlin: “We can’t hide behind a wall.” Speaking in front of the Brandenburg Gate, which was once cut off by the Berlin Wall, the former US president was greeted with cries of “Barack, Barack” as he urged the 70,000-strong crowd to “push back against those trends that would violate human rights or suppress democracy or restrict individual freedoms” and to “fight against those who divide us”....
