    Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) criticized President Trump’s threats on Wednesday to cut off aid to Honduras over an immigrant caravan. Espaillat said that taking such an action “is not going to work” because it signifies a much larger, global issue. President Trump warned if Honduras' government didn’t stop a caravan of migrants headed to the U.S., the Trump administration would withhold funding to the country, “effective immediately.” “That’s not going to work,” Espaillat told Hill.TV co-hosts Krystal Ball and Buck Sexton. “Guatemalans migrate to Mexico, Mexicans migrate to the United States, Africans migrate to Spain and Italy, Libyans migrate to...

    RUSH: Donald Trump, the president of the United States, has “has strongly informed the President of Honduras that if the large Caravan of people heading to the U.S. is not stopped and brought back to Honduras, no more money or aid will be given to Honduras, effective immediately!” The Drive-Bys are eagerly covering this caravan, desperately hoping for it to arrive. Trump is saying if you don’t turn ’em back, then you can forget any aid from us. We’ll see what happens. ‘Cause he means it.

    AGUA CALIENTE, Guatemala (Reuters) - Up to 3,000 migrants crossed from Honduras into Guatemala on Monday on a trek northward, after a standoff with police in riot gear and warnings from Washington that migrants should not try to enter the United States illegally. The crowd more than doubled in size from Saturday, when some 1,300 people set off from northern Honduras in what has been dubbed "March of the Migrant," an organizer said. The migrants plan to seek refugee status in Mexico or pass through to the United States. Reuters could not independently verify the number of participants, but images...

    A Border Patrol agent who serves in the nation’s busiest human smuggling sector says the unsecured border is not safe. During a recent interview with Breitbart Border/Cartel Chronicles Editor-in-Chief Brandon Darby, Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera, in his capacity as vice-president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3373, responded to a question about safety along the unsecured border areas in South Texas. “My response [to people who say the area is safe] is grab a tent and set up shop for a couple of days — see how safe you are,” Agent Cabrera said.

    President Donald Trump warned voters that America will ride a “tidal wave” of illegal immigration, drugs and crime if Senate Democrats’ take over after November’s midterm elections – which would allow them to implement their open borders immigration policy. While speaking on the campaign trail for Republican governor candidate Kris Koback’s in Topeka, Kansas, the president warned voters in the state capital that the open borders plan devised by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) – and supported by every Senate Democrat – will flood the nation with security and economic problems from the southern border. “Every single Democrat in the U.S....

    Federal officials will likely reject legal migrants’ requests for visas or green cards if they cannot speak English, says a draft regulation from President Donald Trump’s Department of Homeland Security. “English language proficiency is a skill that also is relevant in determining whether an alien is likely to become a public charge in the future,” says the draft “public charge” regulation. The regulation is intended to help officials exclude migrants who will likely rely on American taxpayers for their health care, welfare, housing, and wages. The draft regulation says: People with the lowest English speaking ability tend to have the...

    DEL RIO, Tex. — In this tiny town at the edge of South Texas brush country, a black steel fence runs along the Mexican border. About 15 feet high and topped by small metal spires that bend toward Mexico, it stretches west from a Border Patrol checkpoint for about a mile and a half. Then it stops. Where the fence ends, a creek snakes off the Rio Grande, up through a private ranch where cattle wander between the mesquite trees. There, beside the creek gully, a small black cylinder sits atop a metal pole, looming over the small trees. It...

    President Trump and congressional leaders have agreed to a border wall funding showdown after the upcoming November midterm elections and if he plays his cards right, it could result in $5 billion, more than twice what the White House initially sought. While appropriations bills are moving at the fastest pace in over 20 years, with many expected to be approved by Oct. 1, the start of the fiscal year, Homeland Security funding for the wall is likely to be delayed, said officials. Plans are already underway to approve temporary, “stopgap,” funding that will cover Homeland until its new spending is...

    A union representing the country's 350 immigration judges slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for comments he made that suggested they were sidestepping the law and showing too much sympathy when handling certain cases. “When we depart from the law and create nebulous legal standards out of a sense of sympathy for the personal circumstances of a respondent in our immigration courts, we do violence to the rule of law and constitutional fabric that bind this great nation," Sessions said Monday in a speech to newly hired judges. "Your job is to apply the law — even in tough cases." Immigration...

    The surge of Central Americans crossing into the U.S. claiming asylum is no secret around the world. Just a snapshot of those caught entering on any given day is stunning – Nigeria, Romania, Nepal – in addition to the hundreds of Mexicans, Guatemalans and Hondurans. But one of the fastest-growing groups of illegal immigrants come not from the barrios of South America or the slums of Africa, but mega-sized cities in India – 8,000 miles away from the tiny town of El Centro, California, where a handful of Indian nationals are illegally entering the U.S. every day, officials say.

He called it “strictly pathetic” because we don’t have enough support for the border security, the laws aren’t being enforced as much as we need them to be, we need more manpower, and the sanctuary city status is an absolute downfall to every city that embraces it. We have people who risk their lives...

    Hewing to the Trump administration's key talking points about fortifying the border, dismantling international crime rings and banning sanctuary cities, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions told federal prosecutors and law enforcement officers in Houston Friday he had their backs and urged the public to support what he called "common sense" measures to reduce gang violence. "This should be obvious: if we want to reduce violent crime we should reduce illegal immigrant crime," Sessions said. "If you're not prepared to lock up dangerous criminals to protect the public, you're not fulfilling your responsibility."
