    With the migrant crisis reaching epic proportions, the issue of illegal immigration has been thrust back into the limelight. Due to the increasingly high-profile nature of this issue, I think it is an important one for the West to examine through criminal justice, national security, and economic lenses. As I discussed in a recent article about armed gang members on the border, the border is growing more dangerous and chaotic by the day. For that reason, border security is crucial for national security. As Ronald Reagan once said, “a nation that cannot control its borders is not a nation.” History...
  • Closed Schools and Open Borders are a Dangerous Combination

    07/28/2020 3:59:01 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 2 replies ^ | July 28, 2020 | Rep David Brad
    The Democrats want to close our schools and open our borders. American families all over the country have already dealt with months of uncertainty as a result of the coronavirus pandemic and the temporary economic downturn caused by state and local stay-at-home orders. Now, millions of working parents are facing a new worry — being left out of the “V-shaped” economic recovery that’s beginning to take place because they have no way to care for their children unless schools fully reopen in the fall.Most schools have adopted a “partial” approach to reopening, in which students only attend in person two...

    The coronavirus pandemic and recession that followed make it hard for any other news to make it to the front page, but the end of the tragedy is in sight. Just this week, researchers at Oxford announced positive results in human trials for their vaccine. Even if we are not yet at the beginning of the end, we may be, as Winston Churchill once said, at the end of the beginning. That means it might be time, at last, for the presidential campaign to focus on more than the pandemic. By this point in the election cycle, we should be...

    The Trump administration announced on Wednesday the results from a massive federal operation targeting the Cártel de Jalisco Nueva Generación (CJNG), which is one of the most notorious drug cartels in Mexico. The Justice Department (DOJ) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) revealed that over 600 arrests had been made as a result of Project Python, which started late last year. “Project Python marks the most comprehensive action to date in the Department of Justice’s campaign to disrupt, dismantle, and ultimately destroy CJNG,” Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Criminal Division said during a press conference. “When President...

    Britain is to close its borders to unskilled workers and those who can’t speak English as part of a fundamental overhaul of immigration laws that will end the era of cheap EU labour in factories, warehouses, hotels and restaurants. Unveiling its Australian-style points system on Wednesday, the government will say it is grasping a unique opportunity to take “full control” of British borders “for the first time in decades” and eliminate the “distortion” caused by EU freedom of movement. ....

    House leadership has pulled legislation from the floor that would have repealed President Trump’s prior travel bans, amid efforts to focus attention on a coronavirus response bill, Fox News has learned. Democrats made the decision late Wednesday to delay a vote on the No Ban Act to make way for new legislation to help families affected by the virus, said Benjamin Suarato, spokesman for bill sponsor Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif. That bill is in limbo amid GOP opposition. The House, meanwhile, had debated the legislation on Wednesday that was the Democrats’ response to Trump's crackdown that he pledged during the...

    The House and Senate Democrats are so concerned about the American public that they decided to pass a bill stripping the President of his legal authority to impose travel bans to protect American citizens. CDC’s Dr. Anthony Fauci made it clear that the China travel ban greatly slowed the spread of coronavirus in this country. This evening the President stopped travel from Europe except the UK since Europe did not institute China travel bans and are in much worse shape than we are. Europeans coming into the United States and spreading the illness. While the spreading of Wuhan Virus continues,...

The Supreme Court says today that Trump can continue to enforce the policy while the legal challenge continues. One is tempted to read the tea leaves and see this...

    The Trump administration will deploy 160 active-duty soldiers to two cities adjacent the U.S.-Mexico border. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Friday said it would deploy 80 active-duty soldiers to San Diego's San Ysidro border and 80 troops to El Paso's Paso del Norte bridge as soon as Saturday to aid customs officials at entry points, according to USA Today. The decision comes as the administration requests the Supreme Court to uphold the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) or "Remain in Mexico" policy after a lower federal district court in California ruled against the plan last April, saying it violates...

    In a torturous, twisted interpretation of federal immigration law, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a preliminary court order Friday to block the Trump administration from continuing to implement its Migrant Protection Protocols, known informally as the Remain-in-Mexico policy. But shortly after issuing the ruling, the three-judge panel voted 2-1 to put a hold on it, preventing it from going into force until the federal government can file written arguments by the end of Monday in favor of the Remain-in-Mexico policy and plaintiffs can respond by the end of Tuesday arguing in favor of...

U.S. authorities said they closed the busy Ciudad Juarez-El Paso border bridge after more than a hundred mostly Cuban migrants tried to cross in response to the court ruling.

    President Donald Trump is reportedly furious after underlings at the State Department decided to fly 14 Diamond Princess passengers who tested positive for coronavirus back to the U.S. without telling him, and against his wishes. Trump had been told last Saturday that only evacuees who didn't have symptoms or positive test results would be allowed on State Department charter planes back to the US from Japan, according to the Washington Post. Officials on the ground realized late in the evacuation process, on the airport tarmac in Tokyo, that 14 of the roughly 350 evacuees had tested positive for the virus....
