  • This is what Trump's border wall could cost US

    A roughly 2,000-mile fence on the Mexican border would cost tens of billions.If Donald Trump were to build a wall along the United States' southern border, it would cost billions. The U.S. border with Mexico is roughly 2,000 miles long and underlines four states from California to Texas. It is a massive stretch of land — the Berlin Wall spanned just 96 miles comparatively, and it cost about $25 million to build in 1961, or around $200 million with inflation. Building a wall to keep out illegal immigrants is not a novel plan. About 670 miles of fencing on the...

    A few days ago a top law enforcement official finally confirmed that Islamic terrorists have infiltrated the United States through Mexico, a story that Judicial Watch broke last year as part of an ongoing series involving the dangerously porous southern border. Last October JW reported that four members of the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS), who entered the U.S. through the Mexican border, were arrested in McAllen and Pharr Texas. Then, over the summer, JW reported that Mexican drug cartels are smuggling foreigners from countries with terrorist links into a small Texas rural town near...

    Conservative predictions come true In a move that virtually every conservative on Earth saw coming a mile away, House Democrats have introduced a bill that would extend ObamaCare coverage to America’s illegal alien population. Sponsored by radical Dem Representatives Luis Gutierrez and Judy Chu (the usual suspects of illegal support) the “Exchange Inclusion for a Healthy America Act of 2015” seeks to grant illegals ACA enrollment via the healthcare exchanges. Here’s Luis Gutierrez, outlining the ways in which his admiration for the Pope and his belief in the golden rule were responsible for this piece of legislation. Keep in mind,...

Among other things, the report claims that Americans who are concerned about illegal aliens’ involvement in crime are, well, confused. If you read my dissent to the report (I’m a member of the commission), however, you’ll quickly discover that it’s the report that’s confused – dramatically so. Unfortunately, my dissent was omitted when the report was issued two weeks ago ( I know of no other instance in which this...

    He's not expecting a vote, though. Many undocumented immigrants who pay taxes would be able to access Obamacare under a long-shot bill introduced Wednesday by Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.). The Affordable Care Act currently limits access to its exchanges and subsidies to those "lawfully present." That means the approximately 11.3 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. are not eligible for Obamacare, nor can they shop on the exchanges if their employer does not provide them with coverage. Gutiérrez's bill would open the exchanges and extend the subsidies to undocumented immigrants who provide proof of state residency and tax filings. It...

    In Mexicali, Mexico, temperatures can reach 125 degrees as heat envelops an arid desert. Without a body of water nearby to moderate the climate, the heavy sun is relentless — and deadly. During the summer of 1955, this is where hundreds of thousands of Mexicans were “dumped” after being discovered as migrants who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally. Unloaded from buses and trucks carrying several times their capacity, the deportees stumbled into the Mexicali streets with few possessions and no way of getting home. This was strategic: the more obscure the destination within the Mexican interior, the less opportunities they...

    There’s enormous controversy surrounding a new U.S. Commission on Civil Rights report calling for the release of illegal immigrants from detention centers nationwide due to widespread “egregious human rights and constitutional violations.” The commission is an independent and bipartisan federal agency created by Congress decades ago to advance civil rights through “objective and comprehensive investigation, research and analysis.” However, the agency’s chairman, Obama appointee Martin Castro, determined that illegal immigrant detention centers in the U.S. were cesspools of human rights violations before the commission completed its study, according to at least two commissioners on the panel. This appears to be...

  • DOJ to Judge Hanen: 'Miscommunication' Should Not Lead to Punitive Sanctions

    In immigration litigation pitting Texas and 25 other states against the Obama administration, the U.S. Department of Justice filed a memorandum arguing that U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen should not impose punitive sanctions against the federal government. Nor should Hanen, who sits in Brownsville, reduce from three years to two the time allowed on work permits that the federal government already has issued to some 108,000 immigrants, DOJ lawyers argue. In the memorandum, the DOJ lawyers write that punitive sanctions would not be justified as a response to their previous "unintentional miscommunication" to Hanen about the federal government's flawed...

In an interview with the Magyar Idok newspaper, Szijjarto stressed that the EU has neglected the protection of its borders and that EU leaders are afraid to call the situation with its real name, because it is much easier to criticize those who do the work. According to the Hungarian foreign minister, the European leaders are acting on the grounds of false information shared by international media. He said that...

Mr. Trump is his own man; finances his own campaign; solicits no political contributions and will be obligated to no lobbyist or PAC. How refreshing! 2. He stated the obvious:...

It involves tens of thousands of Haitians, who were originally granted TPS after an earthquake devastated the poverty-stricken Caribbean island in 2010.

The new measure will result in a significantly lower benefit level being offered to people who have resided in Denmark for less than seven of the past eight years. The integration benefit will be lowered to the level of Danish student grants, meaning that a single adult with no children will receive 5,945 kroner per month before tax, compared to the current 10,849 kroner unemployment benefit (kontanthjælp) – a 45 percent cut. Foreigners will also receive a financial incentive to learn Danish, as...

    Years ago, an engineer named Glenn Spencer bought a little compound on the U.S.-Mexico border from an Arizona farmer who was tired of the drug cartels' shoot-outs spilling onto his land. It became the home base of American Border Patrol, a company that would develop radars, seismic sensors, and drones to police the border -- a job Americans weren't doing, to coin a phrase. Spencer, like so many immigration hawks, suffered through years of political disappointment, until he finally found salvation in Donald Trump.

In a speech before Congress in 1993 and uncovered by conservative website The Right Scoop, Sen. blasted the fact that illegal aliens were given “rewards” for having babies in the United States. Heck, he even used the dreaded term “illegal alien.” “If making it easy to be an illegal alien isn’t enough, how about offering a reward for being an illegal immigrant?” Reid asked. “No sane country would do...

    McALLEN, Texas — Two illegal aliens from Mexico joined forces with human smugglers to kidnap and torture unsuspecting illegal immigrants being held at a stash house. Instead of charging the group with hostage taking or kidnapping charges, prosecutors charged them with human smuggling. Federal authorities this week raided a house in the border city of Mission, where they arrested a group of illegal immigrants as well as Arthur Flores, a U.S citizen, and two illegal aliens from Mexico described as his henchmen. The two henchmen had been tasked with holding the immigrants under threats of violence, court records obtained by...

    Illegal aliens should not receive public benefits other than emergency aid, and those who become parents while illegally in the United States should not be qualified to claim benefits for their offspring. Legal immigrants should depend for assistance on their sponsors, who are legally responsible for their financial well-being, not the American taxpayers. Just as we require "deadbeat dads" to provide for the children they bring into the world, we should require "deadbeat sponsors" to provide for the immigrants they bring into the country. We support a constitutional amendment or constitutionally-valid legislation declaring that children born in the United States...

    For those of you who have never seen Charles Krauthammer get schooled by a fellow journalist – here you go…Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham just absolutely destroyed Charles Krauthammer on the 14th amendment and anchor babies tonight on Special Report. Charles Krauthammer: The issue of anchor babies or birthright citizenship, it is a sideshow because it’s a symptom…Laura Ingraham: There’s quite a debate about whether the 14th Amendment has to be repealed. I know a lot of people glibly say… That’s not actually been settled and you could do a whole hour on the jurisprudence surrounding that.Krauhammer: It’s been around...
  • Mexico "Getting House in Order" By Cracking Down on Border Security

    Good news. While the Mexican government accuses Americans who want a wall, illegal alien criminals to be deported from U.S. cities and increased security along the southern border of being scared bigots, they're cracking down on Americans and other foreigners walking in an out of their country. From AP (bolding is mine):  Walking into Mexico at the nation's busiest border crossing with the United States is no longer an uninterrupted stroll for foreigners. Pedestrians and motorists have generally entered Mexico unencumbered along the 1,954-mile border with the United States. Now, pedestrians going to Tijuana from San Diego at the San Ysidro crossing must choose...

    Family reporting from Mexico | 21 August 2015 | Mene Mene Tekel Upharsin
    A friend's family member just went to Mexico to visit relatives and came back with an interesting report. In TWO towns, she went to stores and traveled around and saw very FEW Mexicans who appeared to be of lower status. Mostly she saw professional, working people like one would see in the North Dallas, Texas area or Woodlands area north of Houston. It is VERY apparent that Mexico has indeed encouraged those without education or no ambition for learning higher-level skills to emigrate to the United States. Donald Trump obviously has excellent intel on the entire situation and speaks truthfully...
  • How to end the Anchor Baby problem Immediately ~ Vanity

    I just thought of an effective way to end the anchor baby problem clear and simple. Granted it sounds a bit "Draconian", but once you hear it, it does make sense. First, imagine what happens when both parents break ANY OTHER law and get sent to jail. What happens to a child in this case? 1. The child gets taken away by CPS to a temp foster home. 2. If the parents are declared unfit the child can be ran though the foster system and given a fresh set of parents. Well, why not apply this to Illegal Aliens who...

    Illegal aliens who show up at the border have been resettled all across United States of America instead of being detained and deported, as Donald Trump recently called for in his new immigration plan. According to data from the Justice Department obtained by Breitbart News, 96 percent of Central Americans caught illegally crossing into the country last summer are still in the United States. Now Breitbart News has learned exclusively that a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request from a pro-security group about the cost of this operation is being stonewalled. In January of 2015, the Immigration Reform Law Institute,...

    Florida Senator and Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said that he’s “not in favor of repealing the 14th Amendment” because birthright citizenship is one of the things that makes America exceptional, but that people coming to the US to have children is “a legitimate issue” in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood released on Thursday. Rubio began by saying that illegal immigrants are “human beings,” and “not just statistics,” but “human beings with stories.” Rubio was then asked about the debate over immigration in the GOP and whether the GOP was hurting its 2016 chances. Rubio stated that...

    Ten states and the District of Columbia now issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants as of the summer of 2015, according to a report from the Pew Charitable Trusts. California, Colorado, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Vermont, and Washington, as well as Washington, D.C,, issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. The states are estimated to have an illegal immigrant population of 4,120,000 combined. The report says that nearly 37 percent of illegal immigrants live in an area where they may obtain a license.

    Donald J. Trump continues to overheat the Republican Party’s speech on immigration. What is his latest protest against political correctness? “Anchor babies.” [Snip] The phrase is as offensive as the word “illegals” for many immigrants who come to America.
