  • Mark Levin: I strongly support President Trump’s immigration proposal today

    Mark Levin 39 mins · ago I strongly support President Trump’s immigration proposal today. Pelosi & Schumer rejected it even before the president spoke to the nation & made his proposal. They’re radical know-nothings. Let’s hope some rank-and-file Democrats break from their open-border leadership and vote for it. You should contact your members of Congress & urge them to do so. 2.1K Likes 160 Comments 488 Shares

    The Hill ^ | 01/19/19 | Jordain Carney
    Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Saturday that the Senate will take up President Trump's plan to tie more than $5 billion for the border wall to temporary legal protections for some undocumented immigrants next week. "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," McConnell said in a statement. Trump is asking for more than $5 billion for border security in exchange for a three year extension in protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients and...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that European Union (EU) member states must be prepared to transfer powers over to Brussels at a debate on the ‘tensions’ between globalisation and national sovereignty. “Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty,” Merkel said, speaking at an event organised by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin on Wednesday. “In an orderly fashion of course,” Merkel said, explaining that — while Germany had given up some of its sovereignty in order to join the EU, national parliaments were in charge of deciding whether to sign up to international treaties.

    In a late Friday tweet, President Trump has teased what he calls a ‘major announcement’ about the Southern border and the government shutdown tomorrow afternoon at 3 pm. @realDonaldTrump 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. Trump should declare a national emergency, shift funds out of the Pentagon, build The Great Wall, open the government and charge Democrats with finding excuses not to secure our border because they have a demographic and ideological interest in changing the face of the...

    It’s not just her bills that are sparking attention. State Sen. Amanda Chase, R-Chesterfield, generated buzz on Tuesday by presenting them while wearing her .38-caliber revolver in a custom-made holster. The first-term senator — a fan of government transparency and opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment — said she wore the gun following an incident Monday in which Capitol Police were called after immigration-rights supporters confronted Sen. Dick Black, R-Loudoun. Chase said she always carries her gun in concealed fashion but decided Tuesday was a good day to carry openly when she presented her bills in the Senate Privileges and...

See: cannabis legalization, government-run health care, white nationalism and, of course, the flat-earthers. Yet there’s one political shore that remains stubbornly beyond the horizon. It’s an idea almost nobody in mainstream politics will address, other than to hurl the label as a bloody cudgel. I’m talking about opening up America’s borders to everyone who wants to move here. Imagine not just opposing President Trump’s wall but also opposing the nation’s cruel and expensive immigration and border-security apparatus in...

    GUATEMALA-MEXICO BORDER – Approximately 1,000 Central American migrants in the newest caravan have begun the process of crossing into Mexico from Guatemala, a Mexican immigration official stationed at the border between the two countries told Fox News on Thursday night. A new process instituted by Mexico means that migrants will have to wait five days for their paperwork to be processed before entering the country. The new system is meant to keep things orderly after the last caravan rushed the border … Julia Escalon, 43, of the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula, rested under the shade of a tree...

    Moscow Times ^ | Jan 16, 2019
    At least six times more Russians are leaving the country than officially estimated, a comprehensive study conducted by the Proekt news outlet said on Wednesday. Proekt’s report highlights discrepancies between official data from the Rosstat federal statistics agency and data compiled by countries where Russians emigrate to. Rosstat estimates 377,000 Russians left the country in 2017, the latest period for which figures are available and a six-year record. “The U.S. Department of Homeland Security counted six times more Russians arriving in 2017 than Rosstat recorded leaving,” Proekt said. “Six times more people left Russia for 24 OECD countries, where foreign...

    Last week we discussed the news that another large group of people in Honduras clearly hadn’t received the memo and were forming up yet another caravan to head to the United States. Despite efforts by both Mexico and the United States to find some other alternative for them, a group of more than 500 Hondurans packed up their things and set out in short order. As of last night, they had already crossed the border into Guatemala, presenting themselves in a reportedly orderly fashion. (Associated Press) The latest caravan of Honduran migrants hoping to reach the U.S. has crossed...
  • 'Medicare-for-All' Would Take Most of Your Paycheck

    In a crowded field of Democrats vying for the presidency in 2020, one thing stands out. "Medicare-for-all" tops their campaign promises. On Sunday, the latest to announce, former Obama cabinet official Julian Castro, pledged to make Medicare-for-All a reality. But these candidates would rather walk on hot coals than tell you what "Medicare-for-all" costs: a whopping $32 trillion over 10 years. To raise that, all taxpayers, not just the rich, would have to hand a gut-wrenching share of their paycheck to Uncle Sam, based on Congressional Budget Office revenue tables. A single guy earning $82,500 a year, and currently paying...

    Back on November 26, Maryury Hernandez, a God-fearing pregnant migrant from Honduras, entered the country with her husband and three-year-old son in search of "better lives" for her children and "to keep them safe" (so she makes the hazardous trek north?), says journalist Ruben Navarrette, who is "extremely grateful for his citizenship." The problem is, she entered illegally, which makes her eligible for deportation. "I feel like a criminal," said Maryury. She is a criminal. A pregnant foreigner may go to the U.S. to give birth. She doesn't violate any U.S. laws if she has a visa. Still, U.S. Customs,...
  • A Mexican border snapshot from someone who knows: Here's what things really look like.

    American Thinker ^ | 01/16/2019 | Gary Schiff
    Here is a U.S.-Mexican border snapshot. The Coronado National Forest, in New Mexico and Arizona, shares a 53-mile border with Mexico. In 2010, the average number of illegals crossing through that 53-mile stretch were 35,000 per year, of which Customs and Border Protection (CBP) estimated catching about half. There was no effective barrier. Most of those they would catch would be ten miles north of the border on or near Interstate 10, which effectively created a 500-square-mile-plus no man's land of public space, unsafe for entry by the general public. The ranchers who had private land within the area had...
  • Each illegal alien costs nearly $70,000 during their lifetime

    Center for Immigration Studies ^ | October 28, 2018 | Steven A. Camarota
    In a prior analysis, we estimated that the average net fiscal cost (taxes paid minus services used) of an illegal immigrant was $65,292 during their lifetime — excluding their U.S.-born children. This came to $65.3 billion per million illegal immigrants. The figures were expressed in 2016 dollars. Adjusted to 2018 dollars, it would be $69,570 per illegal immigrant, or $69.6 billion per million illegal immigrants. The reason illegal immigrants are unambiguously a net fiscal drain is that less-educated people, native-born or immigrant, earn on average modest wages and as a result they tend to make modest tax contributions, while needing...
