    YUMA, Ariz. (AP) — On a dirt road past rows of date trees, just feet from a dry section of Colorado River, a small construction crew is putting up a towering border wall that the government hopes will reduce — for good — the flow of immigrants who cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.Cicadas buzz and heavy equipment rumbles and beeps before it lowers 30-foot-tall (48-kilometer-tall) sections of fence into the dirt. “Ahí está!” — “There it is!” — a Spanish-speaking member of the crew says as the men straighten the sections into the ground. Nearby, workers pull dates from palm...

    Ann Coulter: Can't America have a little self-respect on immigration? © Getty Images Couldn’t America have a little self-respect? Japan, Denmark and Israel do. Year after year, for decades, America has accepted more refugees than the rest of the world combined. No country we admire does anything close to this. Score one for Donald Trump: In 2017, after he became president, our refugee admissions finally dipped slightly below “more than every other country in the world combined.” Go USA! These aren’t immigrants the host country specifically wanted. We’re not saying, "You know, this country could use some people who know...
  • Fox News's Shepard Smith pushes back on Trump: 'There's no new wall ... not true'

    Fox News chief anchor Shepard Smith on Wednesday disputed President Trump’s recent remarks about border wall construction, saying on air that "there is no new wall." Smith's remarks were in response to a tweet from the president that said the wall is "going up very fast." "So far, despite the president's claims to the contrary, there is no new wall," Smith said. "Existing barriers have been replaced. Same span. The total of repaired barrier is about 60 miles along that 2,000-mile border." "The president also said in the tweet that the wall is going up rapidly. It is not. As...

    In God We Trust is the official motto of the United States of America. But, at least when it comes to media, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough puts his faith in a different, personal deity. On today's Morning Joe, after playing a Fox News clip of Shepard Smith reporting on the progress, or lack thereof, of building the Wall, Joe Scarborough proclaimed: "In Shep We Trust."Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli) California Gov. Gavin Newsom says it is inexplicable that a weapon “of godd—ned mass destruction” was used over the weekend during the Gilroy Garlic Festival mass shooting. The Democrat told a Santa Clara audience that a semi-automatic rifle that Santino William Legan, 19, used to kill three and wound 12 others exists in the U.S., in large part,...

    About 50 miles of brand new wall has been completed by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) along the United States’ southwest border, with more expected to be constructed, according to acting Commissioner Mark Morgan. “Fifty miles of new border wall on the Southwest border and construction continues every day,” Morgan announced in a July 10 Twitter post. “Construction is underway for more than 50 additional miles and more contract awards are anticipated by the end of the year.” Accompanying Morgan’s Twitter post were a few photos, some showing the construction process—others depicting the finished product. It didn’t say exactly where...

    When is President Donald Trump going to recognize that the best way to deal with the border people is to hire them to build the wall? Hiring the border people to build the wall would create a win / win situation. The border people would win by getting jobs. People living in the United States would win because people entering the country from the south in the future would have to pass though check points where they could be screened for contagious diseases. The recent measles outbreaks demonstrate the potential danger of open borders. Dangerous diseases like tuberculosis that are...

    Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” host Nicolle Wallace called President Donald Trump “sadistic.” Wallace said, “The Washington Post, out with just some extraordinary reporting on how Donald Trump is micromanaging his border wall’s design. The bollards, or the slats as he prefers to call them, should be painted flat black, a dark hue that would absorb heat in the summer making the metal too hot for climbers to scale. ....She continued, “If any kid in any high school wrote that, they would be sent to the school shrink.

    President Donald Trump's statement at the Mexican border implies he no longer believes he can make the United States great again. Or, perhaps he doesn't know how a Great America would act in such a situation. Trump said: "Our country is full, our area is full, the sector is full, can’t take you anymore. I’m sorry, can’t happen, so turn around -- that’s the way it is,” Trump's statement is pathetic. He sounds like he is whining. He spoke like the head of a weak powerless nation who doesn't expect any improvement in the future. The president of a Great...

Pop icon Cher has suddenly had a dramatic change of heart on mass immigration after President Trump threatened to dump illegals in the “sanctuary city” where she lives. Imagine my shock. On Friday, Trump said his administration was considering the idea of releasing immigrants into sanctuary cities, partly in retaliation to Democrats’ support for open borders. Previously, Cher had demanded, “Anyone who can must take a dreamer in2 their home & protect them!! I’m ready 2 do this & others in my business will do the same!! Sanctuary.” View image on Twitter...

    President Donald Trump should start acting like the head of a great nation in dealing with the large number of jobless immigrants on the border. The people coming to the Mexican border are essentially saying they think the United States is a great nation which can provide jobs their own countries cannot. A Great Nation helps people in other nations when it can. The United States under President Harry Truman was a great nation because it helped west European nations recover from the devastation their war had caused. The United States cannot provide jobs to everyone in the world, but...

"We were paying them tremendous amounts of money. And we're not paying them anymore. Because they haven't done a thing for us. They set up these caravans," Trump said Friday. "At the Secretary's instruction, we are carrying out the President's direction and ending FY 2017 and FY 2018 foreign assistance...

    In these cases, the Ninth Circuit had held that a provision requiring the mandatory detention of non-citizens who have committed certain dangerous crimes applies only if a non-citizen is arrested by immigration officials as soon as he is released from jail. The Supreme Court rejects this interpretation. The Ninth Circuit is reversed and the case is remanded.
  • Senate Republicans Stand With Democrats, Betray American People

    A growing number of Senate Republicans have announced they will stand with the Democrats in opposition to President Trump’s national emergency declaration. The latest to betray the American people is Sen. Mitt Romney. “This is not a vote against border security. In fact, I agree that a physical barrier is urgently needed to help ease the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, and the administration already has $4.5 billion available within existing authority to fund a barrier – even without an emergency declaration,” he said. The senator is foolish. Today’s vote is indeed a vote against border security. Here’s the...

    The Obama administration is spending close to a half a billion dollars to build a sophisticated electronic fence along Jordan's northern and eastern borders, a wall which US strategic planners hope will stem the flow of refugees and also wall off the increasingly important American base from the disintegration of Syria and Iraq. The wall, which began as a $20 million project in 2008 to erect a set of surveillance towers along a 30-mile (50 km) stretch of the border with Syria, has since expanded into a program costing half a billion dollars, according to defense officials who spoke to...

    President Trump on Wednesday urged fellow Republicans to “stay united” in the face of a Democrat-led effort to nix his declaration of a national emergency at the border. “Senate Republicans are not voting on constitutionality or precedent, they are voting on desperately needed Border Security & the Wall,” he tweeted. "Our Country is being invaded with Drugs, Human Traffickers, & Criminals of all shapes and sizes. That’s what this vote is all about. STAY UNITED!" The House voted last week to block Trump’s emergency declaration, which could help free up billions of dollars to fund a wall on the southern...

    Issues: 1. Is there a Case or Controversy? 2. Is the matter a political issue? CASE OR CONTROVERSY: The Constitution limits the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts to nine classes of “cases or controversies”. Over the years the Supreme Court has exercised its authority by adding further restrictions. Before accepting a case, the court must first determine if the parties have standing. Then it must decide if the timing is right, i.e. “ripe for adjudication”, which is to say that someone has suffered an injury, or withholding a legal determination is likely to result in substantial hardship on the plaintiff....
