  • Congress fails again to stop Trump from using military money for his border wall

    Congress fell short Thursday in its second attempt to end the national emergency President Donald Trump declared to secure money for his proposed border wall. Both chambers of Congress have passed measures to block Trump’s declaration twice since the president took the step in March, prompting two vetoes. Lawmakers failed to override the second veto Thursday as the GOP-held Senate could not muster the two-thirds majority needed. The chamber voted by a 53-36 margin to end the emergency. Ten Republicans voted with Democrats in supporting the resolution. Democrats and some Republicans have accused the president of overreaching and disregarding Congress’...
  • Statement from the Press Secretary (judiciary ruling blocking enforcement of immigration law)

    10/11/2019 6:37:27 PM PDT · by ransomnote · 4 replies ^ | 10/11/19 | Whitehouse
    Issued on: October 11, 2019 It is extremely disappointing that yet another judicial ruling has blocked—on a nationwide basis—this Administration’s efforts to restore integrity to the immigration system, consistent with the plain meaning and clear intent of the law.  The public charge ground of inadmissibility has been a part of United States immigration law for more than 100 years, and is explicitly authorized by Section 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.  Congress has also made clear that aliens should “not depend on public resources to meet their needs.”  But the rulings today prevent our Nation’s immigration officers from ensuring...

    The Trump administration has awarded three new contracts to build about 65 miles of new border wall across the Rio Grande Valley—the busiest sector for Border Patrol agents. According to a press release from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency (CBP), the new border wall sections will be built across Starr, Hidalgo and Cameron Counties in Texas. "The border wall system will include an 18-30 foot tall steel bollard wall, all-weather roads, lighting, enforcement cameras, and other related technology to create a complete enforcement zone," the press release states. Construction of the new border wall sections is expected to...

    Citizens in the small central European state of Slovenia have formed a civil defense force to put a stop to illegal migrants entering their country from Croatia.The Balkan route for migrants heading north from Turkey and Greece into Germany is well-known. However, thanks to Hungary’s national populist Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, the classic Balkan route which starts from Turkey or Greece, goes through Serbia, and then into Hungary has been sealed off. ‘Replacement Migration’, as the United Nation puts it, now comes mainly comes through Bosnia, Croatia, Serbia, and Austria. This is the alternative route that’s been established for illegal...

    Trump administration officials are reportedly contemplating a plan to again redirect billions more in military funding to pay for wall construction at the U.S.-Mexico border next year, three administration officials told The Washington Post. The officials reportedly said that senior officials talked about a plan to pressure lawmakers to reimburse $3.6 billion in Defense Department funds at a meeting last week led by presidential adviser Jared Kushner. The Post reported, citing officials, that the White House has requested $5 billion more for wall funding in 2020 from the Department of Homeland Security, but if that doesn't get approval, the administration...

    KCPQ-TV ^ | September 19, 2019 | The Associated Press
    Washington state's attorney general sued President Donald Trump on Thursday over his plan to shift more than $3.6 billion in military construction funding to help build a border wall. In Washington state, Trump's plan would divert $89 million from a pier project at a submarine base west of Seattle. State Attorney General Bob Ferguson filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court against Trump and other administration officials, saying it was a "misuse of his presidential emergency powers to accomplish an ideological political goal." The cuts stemmed from a Feb. 15 declaration by Trump that a national emergency exists at the...

    The Albuquerque Journal ^ | September 15, 2019 | Yvette Herrell
    President Trump is keeping his pledge on border security – despite the Democrats’ obstruction campaign, the new border wall is coming to New Mexico. Construction crews have already begun reinforcing a 46-mile stretch of the border to protect our state from the growing threat of illegal immigration. For all intents and purposes, this is actually a brand new stretch of border wall, because the old barrier did practically nothing to stop people from crossing the border into New Mexico illegally, as demonstrated in a video clip from 2005 that shows illegal immigrants swarming over it with ease. Similar construction projects...

    Since September 2018, nearly 900 migrants arriving at the United States-Mexico border have been confirmed or suspected to have mumps, a federal report reveals. A report by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) details how the contagious mumps disease has spread across 19 states in 57 detention facilities among migrants — those illegally crossing the southern border and those seeking asylum. Between September 2018 and August 2019, about 898 cases of migrants who had arrived to the U.S. and were in federal detention were reported to have mumps. Another 33 cases of mumps were reported among staff members at the...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar is demanding that the United Nations take control of the U.S. border with Mexico in a mirror of how Europe was inundated with migrants following lobbying from international bodies. “We should do what any other country does by dealing with this situation in a serious way,” Omar said during an immigration forum in south Minneapolis. “So, we have to bring in the United Nations high commissioner on refugees, an agency that has the expertise and the training to handle massive flows of refugees humanely.” Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) says the *United Nations* must be brought in to...

Terror group Hezbollah is known to use our Southern border as a means of breaking and entering. Videos from Tuesday show the migrants from Africa attacking military police who protect themselves with helmets and riot shields, while other migrants throw objects at them. The attacks took place outside the Siglo XXI immigrant detention centre in Tapachula near the Guatemalan border and have been going on for days, as the invaders demand “free...

    Agents of the United States Border Patrol risk their lives on a daily basis to protect the U.S. southern border from illegal immigration. The vast amount of families that are crossing the border illegally may be the most widely reported immigration news in the media right now, but the US Border Patrol risk their lives on a daily basis to secure the southern border. The El Paso, TX sector is one of the most dangerous places along the southern border. Agents face threats not from migrants who are trying to seek asylum or refugee, but rather illegal immigrants trying to...

    The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers, mega-donors to the GOP establishment, helped market endless free trade policies to Democrat politicians, a new book details. A report by the Intercept outlines a recently released book titled Kochland by Christopher Leonard where the author alleges that brothers Charles and David Koch funded a 2007 report by the left-wing Third Way organization to warn Democrat politicians against the populist, economic nationalist arguments made by Lou Dobbs at the time. Though aligned for the last few decades with Republican lawmakers, the Kochs were major supporters of the economic policies of the Obama administration which sought...

    Having an open border combined with a welfare state is crazy. It’s like having a really nice house with really nice things inside, and then telling people, “It’s all yours. Come on in any time you want. Take whatever you wish”. What do you think would happen? It’s stupid not to have locks on your doors. But it’s even more stupid to treat all your things as if they all belong to others. Yet that’s pretty much what we’re doing now in America, or at least we WILL be doing if the leftists, Democrats and RINO types get their way....

    The Washington Post, owned by billionaire Jeff Bezos, who is also the CEO of Amazon, released an editorial this week blasting the enforcement of national immigration law as “cruel” and said U.S. businesses should not be deprived of employing illegal alien workers. In an editorial in the Washington Post, the editors wrote that the recent raids on seven Mississippi food processing plants by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents were “cruel” and “pointless” despite arresting and identifying 680 illegal workers, including more than 200 who had previous criminal records. About 300 of the illegal workers arrested were released that same...
