    President Donald Trump took to Twitter this morning to chide Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) for shouting down acting Secretary of Homeland Security Kevin McAleenan over conditions in detention camps during a hearing last week. We’re doing our level best in a challenging —," McAleenan said before being cut off by Cummings, who went on a two-minute rant about border conditions. "What does that mean? What does that mean when a child is sitting in their own feces, can’t take a shower? Come on, man," Cummings said to McAleenan. "None of us would have our children in that position. They are human...

    Kevin McAleenan, acting secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, said last week that President Donald Trump helped the department remedy the humanitarian crisis at the Southern Border.In particular, McAleenan emphasized at a Thursday congressional hearing that Trump’s diplomatic outreach with Mexico significantly reduced the number of illegal immigration into the United States.“Thanks to President Trump’s direct engagement, we’ve entered into an agreement with Mexico in early June to address the migration flows that is making a dramatic impact — a 28 percent reduction in border crossing in June,” McAleenan, who is also the commissioner for U.S. Customs and Border...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Trump administration said Monday it will end asylum protections for most migrants who arrive at the U.S.-Mexico border in a major escalation of the president’s battle to tamp down immigration. According to a new rule published in the Federal Register , asylum seekers who pass through another country first will be ineligible for asylum at the U.S. southern border. The rule, expected to go into effect Tuesday, also applies to children who have crossed the border alone. The rule applies to anyone arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border. Sometimes asylum seekers from Africa , Cuba or Haiti...

    EL ROSARIO, Honduras — On a late winter evening, the people of this remote village walked out of their tin-roofed houses and headed to the local health clinic, a small, brightly painted building that has become a lifeline and a community gathering place. Worry crossed their faces as they crammed onto wooden benches outside the clinic, shuffling dust-covered cowboy boots and plastic sandals. They had come with questions. Last year, farmers here watched helplessly as drought withered their corn and bean crops for a fifth straight year. With nothing to sell and no food supplies to feed their families, they’ve...

    CNN's Fareed Zakaria laments that President Donald Trump was correct that there is a crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. From his Sunday program, 'Fareed Zakaria GPS': FAREED ZAKARIA, CNN: Given President Trump's mean spirited and often bigoted attitudes on immigration, it pains me to say this, but he is right, that the United States faces a crisis with its asylum system. Democrats might hope that the out-of-control situation at the southern border undermines Trump's image among his base as a tough guy who can tackle immigration. But they should be careful. It could actually work to the president's advantage. Since...

    Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) on Wednesday spoke with CNN's Wolf Blitzer about the Democratic caucus' trip to the southern border, where they toured multiple facilities in Texas. What's interesting though, is Tlaib said exactly what Border Patrol agents have been saying for years."I can tell you that the couple of agents that have taken me aside were imploring me to please, report back what's happening here because they don't want any part of it anymore," Tlaib explained. "And they do actually feel like it's making us less safe because they're not at the border. You know, in their eyes, they're not...

    Extremely disturbing facts about attempts of Islamic State (ISIS) to enter the US soil and create economic chaos have been recently exposed by Anne Speckhard and Ardian Shajkovci in the Homeland Security Today, of June 3, 2019. In the report they wrote, “The vulnerability of the U.S. borders to possible exploitation by terrorists – particularly in light of the heavy migration flow toward our southern border, either by those claiming asylum or relying on smugglers to cross into the country undetected – has been a border enforcement and policy concern since at least 9/11....

    While the President is overseas honoring D-Day, the cable news talking heads back home have been busy critiquing his recently announced plan to impose an increasing series of tariffs on Mexico unless that nation stops the flood of migrants passing through their country toward the United States. The plan has been described in the press with a variety of terms ranging from reckless to impossible. After all, even if Mexico was willing to consider such a deal, how could they possibly stop the human tide from flowing across their own southern border?Well, the tariffs must have gotten their attention....

    Yesterday the Department of Homeland Security released new numbers showing 76,000 illegal aliens crossed the southern border into the United States in February, a significant increase from the 58,000 individuals who crossed in January. Today Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham is holding a hearing about the problem. "Contrary to what some political opponents and media outlets claim the situation at our southern border is dangerous and growing worse. It’s not a hoax. It’s not a manufactured crisis. It’s not a cable television ploy. It is real. It is serious. It is a threat. And it poses a direct...

    EL PASO, Texas — Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said Saturday after visiting the U.S.-Mexico border that the government needs a broader, more effective approach to border control. He suggested the Pentagon might contribute with its expertise in surveillance and monitoring. “How do we get out of treating the symptoms and get at the root of the issue,” Shanahan said in an interview while flying back to Washington. Considering how the military could reinforce efforts to block drug smuggling and other illegal activity comes as the Pentagon weighs diverting billions of dollars for President Donald Trump’s border wall. Shanahan said...

    The Pentagon is planning to deploy hundreds more American military personnel to the southern border, in the wake of President Trump’s announcement of a national emergency along the country’s border with Mexico. Currently 5,000 U.S. troops are stationed in Texas, Arizona and California, backing immigration enforcement operations led by the Department of Homeland Security. With Mr. Trump’s declaration of a national emergency, that number is expected to surge to 6,000 by March 1, a senior Defense Department official said Friday. Those troops will provide air support to Customs and Border Patrol officers and Homeland Security agents carrying out border security...

    Safeguarding America's security--and American lives--should be paramount and non-negotiable President Trump’s Proclamation of a National Emergency on the Southern Border has ensured that the consequences of the illegal entry of drugs, criminals and foreigners through that porous border will now be owned by the Congress and not the President—guaranteeing him certain victory in the 2020 Presidential elections. The rush to test the legal validity of Trump’s Proclamation in the Courts was clearly in Trump’s mind even before he had signed the final papers:

    Nearly 4,000 additional U.S. troops will be deployed to the southern border to assist Customs and Border Protection, the Pentagon announced Sunday.

The deployment will bring the number of active-duty forces in the area to roughly 4,350. Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan said last week that the department would send "several thousand" additional troops to the border, but declined to be more specific. The Hill has reached out to the Pentagon...
