    President Trump, apparently frustrated with footage of the U.S. border fence in Tijuana, Mexico, tweeted a photo Monday afternoon of a new and improved version. The Fake News is showing old footage of people climbing over our Ocean Area Fence. This is what it really looks like - no climbers anymore under our Administration!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 19, 2018 Meanwhile, thousands of illegal migrants traveling in a caravan from Central America have made their way to Tijuana. They are on the Mexican side of the border waiting to make asylum claims in the U.S. The Trump administration...
  • Razor wire now covers border wall where 'vanguard' of migrant caravan taunted U.S.

    Hours after images of migrants climbing a border wall in San Diego went viral, the Homeland Security Department deployed razor wire Wednesday to prevent a repeat. The immigrants, who said they were the vanguard of the caravans streaming north through Mexico, ascended the fence Tuesday in a display of defiance. Video and photos showed them cheering and jeering atop the slat-style fence. Although no arrests or confrontations were reported, Homeland Security took immediate steps to try to keep others from climbing by deploying concertina wire, which coils over itself, creating a thorough barrier. “As we have said repeatedly, being a...
  • Mattis Gives Pep Talk To Troops Defending Southern Border

    Secretary of Defense James Mattis Wednesday visited the troops deployed to the U.S.-Mexico border and gave them some inspiring words ahead of the arrival of a migrant caravan slowly making its way through Mexico toward the U.S. The Department of Defense’s latest estimate suggests there will be more than 7,000 troops at various positions in Arizona, California and Texas, according to CNBC. Mattis spoke directly to the troops on his trip. “In the Army, we don’t care if you’re male or female, we don’t care where you go to church or if you go to church,” he said. “We just...

    In addition to the troops heading to the border, the government has also sent miles of razor wire. The Commander of the U.S. Northern Command and North American Aerospace Defense Command, Terrence John O'Shauhnessy, spoke about the addition during a press conference on Monday. "We have enough concertina wire to cover up to 22 miles already deployed, already to the border. We have additional concertina wire that we can string with over 150 miles available,” says O'Shauhnessy. From residential to law enforcement property, when protecting perimeters, many often choose between two popular choices: barbed wire and concertina wire. When you...

    Obama slammed Republicans for their aggressive stance against migrants trying to enter the U.S. during his speech rallying for Florida Democrats in Miami.'They're telling you the existential threat to America is a bunch of poor refugees a thousand miles away. They're even taking our brave troops away from their families for a political stunt at the border. The men and women of our military deserve better than that. So they're just constant fear mongering to distract from the record,' he added.

    President Donald Trump delivered a sharply worded speech on immigration Thursday, vowing to hold undocumented immigrants in detention until they could be deported and to block asylum seekers from claiming asylum if they are caught crossing the border outside of legal ports of entry. Both measures are expected to be met with lawsuits in federal court. Under current law, immigrants are allowed to make a claim for asylum anywhere in the United States, no matter how they entered. And the Trump administration would be in violation of international asylum law as well, said Scott Anderson, a David M. Rubinstein fellow...

    President Trump said Wednesday he could send up to 15,000 troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, which would surpass the number of soldiers currently stationed in Afghanistan. Speaking to reporters as he left the White House for a campaign rally Wednesday night in Florida, Trump said the number of military personnel on the border "will go up to anywhere between 10,000 and 15,000 military personnel on top of the Border Patrol, ICE, and everybody else at the border." The current number of troops deployed to the border is 5,239, the head of Northern Command, Gen. Terence O'Shaughnessy, said on Tuesday. He...

  • Mattis Shoots Down Reporter On Troop Deployment To The Border: This Isn't A Stunt

    We have an illegal alien horde approaching our southern border. No, we have multiple hordes approaching the border. With local police in Mexico unable to stop them, the closest caravan is 1,000 miles away from the border. The Trump administration has decided to deploy thousands of troops in hopes of preventing scores of illegal aliens from flooding into the country. It’s been slammed as a 2018 election ploy. For Secretary of Defense James Mattis, this isn’t a stunt. Yesterday, he shot down a reporter who made that insinuation during a presser with South Korea’s defense minister (via Fox News):Watch the latest video...

    He also suggested that the US troops he dispatched to the US-Mexico border could fire on someone in the migrant caravan if the person threw rocks or stones at them. In a meandering speech at the White House about immigration, Trump recycled many of the talking points he touts on the campaign trail -- but offered little in the way of concrete ways to address the problems he embellished.

    Donald Trump has said he is ready to send 15,000 troops to the US-Mexico border in an attempt to prevent the caravan of migrants from entering the US.

    The top U.S. general overseeing a deployment of more than 5,200 troops to the border with Mexico said on Tuesday that troop levels would rise further, but declined to say how high or estimate what the operation will cost. Many basic questions remained unanswered a day after the Pentagon announced the open-ended deployment of over 5,200 active-duty troops to the border, including the scope of the mission as well as the Pentagon’s assessment of any threat posed by arriving migrants. ................
