  • New Border Wall In San Diego Is Helping Drive Border Crossings Down

    Do border walls work? Based on the evidence at the new border wall in San Diego, they do. A year ago, the U.S.-Mexico border near San Diego was an easy spot for caravans to send migrants into the United States. Not so much anymore, according to a report from Fox News. A 14-mile long border wall in San Diego that replaced an old fence is already working wonders. “It's incredibly different...I’m able to see the old landing mat right next to the bollard and I'm able to see the old mesh right next to the new bollard and the...
  • Citizenship is Meaningless: California To Allow Illegal Aliens To Serve On Government Boards

    The sanctuary state is at it again. California Governor Gavin Newsom has been burning through pens signing a raft of new bills into law at the close of his first legislative session. In addition to dozens of new gun laws, he also signed a bill further undermining federal immigration laws. This took the form of a bill that will allow illegal aliens to serve on government boards and commissions. A second measure claims to ban federal immigration officers from making arrests in courthouses. They seem to have missed the one where each illegal alien gets a free house and...

    In an article in the Wall Street Journal, on October 5, 2001, Francis Fukuyama declared that his "end of history" thesis remains valid twelve years after he first presented it shortly before the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Fukuyama’s core argument was that after the defeat of Communism and National Socialism, no serious ideological competitor to Western-style liberal democracy was likely to emerge in the future. Thus, in terms of political philosophy, liberal democracy is the end of the evolutionary process. To be sure, there will be wars and terrorism, but no alternative ideology with a universal appeal...
  • Illegal Alien Accused Of Rape Was Permitted To Revisit Accuser… Despite ICE Detainer

    Who are they REALLY protecting here, law-abiding citizens, or those who would prey upon them? There is a reason the right needs to start talking about the bogus compassion of the Left on immigration issues. They deliberately misrepresent and distort one issue ‘separating children’ to drive a narrative, which could be resolved in a heartbeat by lawmakers disincentivizing illegal crossings. But rather than solve that issue, they are endangering untold numbers of law-abiding Americans, exposing them (due to ‘Sanctuary City’ policy) to the threats from the worst sort of criminals. Case in point, rather than executing the ICE detainer, these...

    President Trump’s administration deported more than 2,500 illegal aliens in the last two months who had arrived at the United States-Mexico border and claimed to be part of a family unit. Federal data obtained by Breitbart News reveals that since August, the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has deported more than 2,500 illegal aliens who arrived as a family unit at the southern border and have final orders for removal. Over these two months, ICE agents arrested another 275 illegal aliens who arrived as family units at the border. All of these illegal aliens arrested have final orders for...

    US pharmaceutical companies are luring Mexican residents across the border to sell their blood for up to $400 a month. The blood donors are using tourist visas to enter the United States and make hundreds of dollars by donating plasma up to twice a week. Out of a total of 805 blood plasma donating sites in the United States, 43 are located near the southern border. The border centers generate twice the amount of donors on a weekly basis than the rest of their counterparts in the rest of the country, according to ProRepublica. Companies, such as Spanish-based Grifols, which...

    It’s a landmark ruling out of Miami, Florida that was handed down from a federal district judge. Cooperate with ICE… or you’re out of a job. There was a new Florida state law that put a ban on sanctuary cities. It also ordered law enforcement officers to continue full cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Miami U.S. District Court Judge Beth Bloom upheld a majority of the components of that law on Monday, just one day before SB 168 went into effect. On top of banning sanctuary cities in Florida, it also creates a new mandate. It requires...

    President Donald Trump issued a proclamation Friday that will require immigrants to prove they can obtain health insurance before they are issued a visa. The proclamation — the latest in a series of moves that would restrict immigration — says immigrants must demonstrate they will have health insurance within 30 days of entering the country or that they can afford to cover any medical expenses. The White House touted the proclamation as "protecting health care benefits for American citizens," arguing that uninsured immigrants create a financial burden for hospitals and doctors, forcing them to charge higher fees for Americans to...

    A Virginia police officer was suspended after allegedly turning over a suspected undocumented immigrant to federal authorities following a traffic accident last month. The Fairfax County Police Department didn't identify the officer in a statement released Tuesday but said the incident occurred on Sept. 21 when an officer was dispatched to a car accident. The officer discovered one of the drivers didn't have a Virginia driver's license and ran a check with the state Department of Motor Vehicles, police said. The check revealed the driver had a violation for failing to appear for a deportation hearing. The officer verified the...

She had no way of know that her decision would eventually force her to flee her country, fly halfway across the world and then set out on a 4,000-mile trek through dense jungle and across seven borders – only to leave her stranded in southern Mexico, where her hopes of finding safety in the US were blocked by the Mexican government’s efforts to placate Donald Trump’s anti-migrant rage. “It is just too much,” sobbed Neh,at a protest camp set up by migrants from...

    Donald Trump floated adding a moat filled with snakes and alligators at the border and shooting border jumpers in the legs as a solution to the influx of illegal immigration coming from the south, it was revealed Tuesday. During a private March meeting with White House advisers, the president asked for cost estimates on several ideas he had that he felt would stop migrants from illegally crossing into the U.S., more than a dozen White House and administration officials directly involved in the events revealed in a new book. The book, 'Border Wars: Inside Trump's Assault on Immigration' by New...

    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...

    House Democrats bristled over efforts to apply so-called "red flag" laws as a means of disarming violent criminals. House Judiciary Chairman Nadler (D-NY) called the GOP effort "racist and inhumane. The kind of people they want to target live outside the law. These people need guns for their own protection and to earn a living. If you're a gang member you can't expect someone to give you money just because you ask. You have to have the ability to persuade that person to surrender his wallet, watch, or cell phone. Access to a firearm greatly improves the odds of successful...

    Now that he has dropped out of the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is free to indulge in his favorite pastime—shafting the citizens and residents who fall under his governance. The newest bit of tyranny from the Mayor is the enactment of an ordinance that imposes hefty fines on anyone using the phrase “illegal alien” or the word “illegals.” “We determined that our ongoing policy of shielding accused rapists and murderers from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents is not enough to discourage attitudes of hostility toward individuals who have entered...

    [Catholic Caucus] 2-Ton "Woke" Addition to Saint Peter's Square: Saint Migrants and Saint Virtue-Signalling Piazza San Pietro -- Saint Peter's Square: one of the architectural jewels of mankind, the centerpiece of baroque Rome, and one of the masterpieces of the long and productive life of Gian Lorenzo Bernini. While there have been significant changes outside and leading to the square (done by the Italian state after the Lateran agreements), the magnificent square itself has been left virtually unchanged since Bernini added the second fountain in 1675 to make the whole space perfectly symmetrical. Not even the upheavals that followed the...
  • [Obama] Judge Blocks Trump Administration’s Plans for Detaining Migrant Families

    A federal judge in California blocked the Trump administration from carrying out plans to detain immigrant families indefinitely while their requests for asylum are pending. Friday’s ruling is the latest in a string of judicial orders blocking efforts designed to curb illegal immigration and the flow of mostly asylum-seeing families from Central America. The ruling is likely to be appealed. Judge Gee, an Obama appointee, said she struck down the new plan because it didn’t meet a provision called the Flores agreement that prohibits the U.S. from detaining children in immigration jails. Families who cross into the U.S. illegally and...

    Proposals to curb immigration will weigh on economic growth in the United States where the existing workforce is growing more slowly as the population ages, Dallas Federal Reserve president Robert Kaplan said on Thursday. "If you think you are actually going to cut the number of immigrants and grow GDP, those two things do not go together ... You need to grow the workforce," Kaplan said. He suggested the United States consider reforms that would allow more immigration based on surveys of needed skills. "Trade and immigration loom very large as opportunities for the U.S. to grow faster as opposed...

    California, whose new leftist governor, Gavin Newsom, has big ambitions to be the counter-president for now, and eventually replace President Trump, has this one little problem that always comes of socialist rule:The locals are fleeing.  And now it turns out half the ones who haven't fled are thinking about it. Just over half of California’s registered vote have considered leaving the state, with soaring housing costs cited as the most common reason for wanting to move, according to a new poll. Young voters were especially likely to cite unaffordable housing as a reason for leaving, according to the latest latest UC...
