    McConnell: The President Stepped Up with Bold Plan to Re-Open Government, Fund Border Security ‘Everyone has made their point—now it’s time to make a law. I intend to move to this legislation this week. With bipartisan cooperation, the Senate can send a bill to the House quickly so that they can take action as well. The situation for furloughed employees isn’t getting any brighter and the crisis at the border isn’t improved by show votes. But the President’s plan is a path toward addressing both issues quickly.’ WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) made the following...

    Is it coming tomorrow? House Democrats are still holding the line on denying President Trump his border wall. The $5 billion proposal led to the current shutdown, now the longest in American history. Trump wants to at least get part of the border wall built. Democrats are not in a bipartisan mode. They just retook the House on the overarching promise to fight this White House not work with it.  I will be making a major announcement concerning the Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border, and the Shutdown, tomorrow afternoon at 3 P.M., live from the @WhiteHouse.— Donald J....

    It is amusing that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi claims her desire to delay the State of the Union address is because of security concerns stemming from federal employees' being furloughed over a budget battle caused by her party's refusal to secure this country's southern border. Everyone knows this has nothing to do with security at the Capitol and everything to do with flexing her muscles against President Trump and showing him who's boss. She also wants to deprive Trump of his bully pulpit during a time when public opinion is tilting away from her party's unreasonable, bad-faith and dishonest...

    Border security is an issue where the Democratic Party is suffering from schizophrenia. They were for it before they were against it. Donald Trump winning the 2016 election caused that, despite some very prominent Democrats, like Barack Obama, supporting border barriers in times past. Now, the war cry is that “a wall is an immorality.” That is coming from Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Walls are immoral. So, what about illegal aliens who murdered American citizens? Apparently, that’s not a concern; dreams of amnesty and expanded Democratic voter rolls have clouded the liberal mind. Pelosi: ‘A wall is an immoralityYet, House Majority...
  • Trump is goading Pelosi to completely disinvite him to speak in the House for the SOTU

    President Trump latest action of denying Pelosi use of military planes within hours of departure overseas in light of the shutdown, puts Nancy and the Democrats in a goading box If Pelosi acquiesce and allow Trump to speak before all of Congress in the House then she will appear as groveling and weak as she backs down from her supposedly power move praised by the media. The radical leftists in the House wouldn’t like it either and would slam Pelosi as a weakling and not standing up to Trump. President Trump wins If Pelosi denies Trump to speak before all...

    WASHINGTON — Along the 2,000-mile border with Mexico, which sprawls across four states and nine House districts, a single seat is held by a Republican: Representative Will Hurd of Texas. And Mr. Hurd, a former undercover C.I.A. officer who barely won re-election in Texas’ 23rd District, the largest of the nine, has emerged as perhaps the most persistent critic in his party of President Trump’s wall. Drawing upon his years undercover and his work in the private sector, Mr. Hurd has a starkly different vision for the southwestern border: fiber optic cables, sensors, radar, drones, increased staffing — but not...

    President Trump hosted a number of Republican and Democratic House lawmakers at the White House Wednesday to negotiate over border security and end the ongoing government shut down. “The President and his team had a constructive meeting with bipartisan members of the problem solvers caucus. They listened to one another and now both have a good understanding of what the other wants. We look forward to more conversations like this,” Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said about the meeting.  These House Democrats in the centrist Problem Solvers Caucus met today with @realDonaldTrump in the Situation Room to discuss the shutdown: Josh...

    As an attorney experienced working with public policy litigation, here is a practical plan for how Trump can keep the legal dispute entirely within the Fifth Circuit and out of the Ninth Circuit. First, President Trump should get on Air Force One and fly to Texas to meet with Republicans opposed to illegal immigration Governor Greg Abbott, Senator Ted Cruz, and leaders of the Texas legislature. Second, Governor Abbott should formally request the Texas legislature to issue an application for the federal government to defend the Texas border with Mexico. Section 4, Article 4 of the United States Constitution commands...

    LORDSBURG, N.M. — Ranchers and farmers near the U.S.-Mexico border have been finding prayer rugs on their properties in recent months, according to one rancher who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation by human smugglers. The mats are pieces of carpet that those of the Muslim faith kneel on as they worship during their unauthorized trek into and through the United States. "There’s a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico," the rancher said. "People, the general public, just don’t get the terrorist threats of that. That’s what’s really scary. You don’t know what’s coming across....

    President Trump hosted a border security meeting at the White House Tuesday afternoon. In an effort to make progress on the government shutdown, Trump invited Republican and Democrat lawmakers to attend with ideas. Not a single Democrat showed up. Their leaders, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, were also missing. “As Senator Schumer and Speaker Pelosi refuse to negotiate, President Donald J. Trump and his team are working hard to find solutions to solve the humanitarian and national security crisis at the border and reopen the government. The President has a proposal on the table...

    The US military will be extending its security support mission at the southern border with Mexico through the end of September, according to officials. Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan authorized the extension on Monday after receiving a request from the Department of Homeland Security. The border deployment was first ordered back in October by President Trump and initially slated to end...

    Steve Guest Twitter Video at link. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) faced some tougher talk from media hosts, for once, regarding the government shutdown that has lasted 20+ days now. President Trump promised border security during the 2016 campaign. He promised to build a wall. He has to follow through on it. It was one of his signature issues. He’s only asking $5 billion for part of his wall. The Democrats are not willing to play ball after reclaiming the House. Last week, Trump offered to re-open the government in exchange for some of the funding. Democrats rejected...

    It seems Democrats will starve children—even children of fellow Democrats—in order to keep an unsecured border in place, hence ensuring a more dangerous nation.This is being proven this very minute and the facts are indisputable. But think on it for half a second. Ask yourself the question, “What happens if either side gives in on the current border security vs. open-the-government stand off?” It’s a reasonable question to ask. We are now into the longest, most protracted government shutdown of the modern era and talk radio, social media, & cable news are playing out the debate in increasingly strident contrast....

    California welcomed a new governor this week – Gavin Newsom. Newsom has set as priorities that anyone in the state would be provided health care at no cost and that the state will remain a sanctuary state. Is there any wonder that the caravans from Central America that were supposedly coming here for humanitarian reasons diverted the path of the caravan from going to Texas and added over 500 miles to their trek to arrive at the border of California? Another year has gone by and yet there has been zero progress on confronting our dysfunctional immigration policies. Our government...

Titled “Stopping Terrorist Travel Through Illicit Pathways to the Homeland,” the document outlines the findings of a lengthy investigation involving Special Interest Aliens (SIA) by the House Homeland Security Committee. SIA’s are individuals from countries outside the western hemisphere—mostly the...

    The video is from McAllen, Texas -- just like Jim Accost Her's dateline, where he claimed there was no problem at the border at all. Strangely enough, illegal immigrants choose to illegally cross the border in the parts of McAllen where there's not a fence instead of the places where there is one. Go figure! He notes that CNN just doesn't seem interested in reporting the actual facts about the border. CNN just wants to do Trump Dunk bullshit for ratings and partisan cheerleading.

    "Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade warned President Trump Thursday morning not to declare a national emergency to build a border wall without getting congressional approval, arguing it would set "a terrible precedent." "It would be a disaster in the big picture and it would show us being inept and unable to govern around the world," Kilmeade said. "It would set a terrible precedent." “The next president, if it is a liberal president, will say a state of emergency will be climate change," he added. "Look at what happened with [Hurricane] Sandy, look at what happened with the earthquake, look...

    Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said on Thursday that President Donald Trump should declare a national emergency and bypass Congress to fund a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's "refusal to negotiate on funding for a border wall/barrier - even if the government were to be reopened - virtually ends the congressional path to funding for a border wall/barrier," Graham said in a statement. "It is time for President Trump to use emergency powers to fund the construction of a border wall/barrier," he said.
