  • National Guard Builds Border Fencing as Biden Lets Border Wall Rot

    Eagle Pass, TX - Upon taking office in January 2021, President Joe Biden halted construction on the U.S. southern border wall, which greatly helps Border Patrol and local law enforcement cut down on illegal activity. As a result the Texas National Guard, deployed last summer through Governor Greg Abbott’s Operation Lone Star, has stepped in to fill the gaps with fencing lined with concertina or razor wire. “When you drive a tank through a chainlink fence, if it has concertina wire on top, it’ll stop that tank because that wire will get wrapped up on the sprocket, the wheels of...

    Ten Democrats have broken ranks with President Biden to side with the GOP over the ending of Title 42, a Trump-era border policy that allows for expedited deportation of migrants and prevents them from seeking asylum. "Right now, we have a crisis on our southern border. Right now, this administration does not have a plan. I warned them about this months ago," Sen. Mark Kelly, D-Ariz., told Fox News over the weekend. "It’s going to be, to be honest, it’s going to be a crisis on top of a crisis." Kelly is just one of several Democrats now speaking out...
  • White House Refuses to Apologize After Reports Say Border Patrol Agents Cleared of ‘Whipping’ Migrants

    The White House declined to comment Monday on the results of a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) investigation that reportedly found no border patrol agents were guilty of whipping migrants crossing the Southern border in September 2021. White House press secretary Jen Psaki refused to address reports showing the agents involved with the accusations were cleared of criminal wrongdoing, despite accusations from President Joe Biden and other administration officials that they were guilty of whipping or “strapping” the migrants.
  • Former border chief: Biden ‘literally handed over operational control to the cartels'..."We literally handed over operational control to the cartels," he said.

    Former Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is accusing President Joe Biden of "intentionally" creating a border crisis, but said the administration was unable to properly execute the open borders strategy. Morgan also told the "John Solomon Reports" podcast on Monday that his former agents feel "demoralized" while the "borders are wide open" and "every aspect of our public health, safety, national security is being jeopardized." After Biden ends Title 42, the Trump-era migration mitigation measure, his administration is expecting as many as 18,000 illegal migrants to come to the southern border every day. Currently, between 7,000 and 8,000...

    U.S. immigration officials detained more than 5,000 migrants from Ukraine at the nation’s land, sea and air borders in March, with a significant increase in those seeking refuge at the U.S.-Mexico boundary, adding to the record influx of newcomers from Latin America and the Caribbean this year, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection figures released Monday. The tally — up from fewer than 1,150 the month before — marks the first official accounting of Ukrainians seeking refuge at the ports and borders since Russia’s invasion began Feb. 24. Many, if not most, Ukrainians have been released into the United...

    A 22-year high in apprehensions along the U.S.-Mexico border in March was partly fueled by record arrivals of migrants from Cuba, Nicaragua, Colombia and Ukraine, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) figures released this week show. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) processed migrants 221,303 times along the southern border in March, a 33% jump from February and the highest tally since 2000, according to agency statistics. CBP said 159,900 encounters in March represented unique migrants, citing a 28% rate of repeat border crossings. The spike in migrant arrivals was also partly driven by a 33% increase in apprehensions of single adults,...

    Source: Townhall Media/Julio RosasThe Hunter Biden coverup continues to unravel and, as it does, questions about the president's involvement become harder to dodge. Hunter's nefarious dealings with what at the time was China's largest energy company, CEFC, are well-documented, as are his questionable activities in Russia and Ukraine. The concept is known as influence peddling, a smarmy practice refined to an art form in "the swamp." Hunter Biden's "take" from Russia while his father was vice president was reportedly at least $3.5 million, for which he did nothing but be Joe Biden's son. Now, Joe Biden is president of the...

    Beto O’Rourke had called for an end to Title 42 for months. He said the emergency health order from the federal government, which allows officials to turn away migrants at the border to control spread of COVID-19, was ineffective and has led to mass repeat crossings which overwhelm an already overworked Border Patrol staff. But earlier this week, O’Rourke raised some eyebrows. He called on the White House not to end the health order until it had laid out a plan to help border communities deal with the increase of migrants expected after its end in May. O’Rourke’s comment confused...

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Kudlow,” Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL) criticized House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for extending proxy voting in the House due to the coronavirus pandemic while Title 42 is set to expire. Cammack said, “This is absolutely nuts. The double standard in Washington, it just never ceases to amaze me. You know, Nancy Pelosi, just a few weeks ago, put out a statement saying that we needed to extend proxy voting in Congress because of the health emergency, that members weren’t able to cast their ballots and their votes in person. So, you’ve...

    Former President Donald Trump has endorsed best-selling author J.D. Vance, a vocal national populist, in the Ohio Republican Senate primary race. [cut] This is not an easy endorsement for me to make because I like and respect some of the other candidates in the race — they’ve said great things about “Trump” and, like me, they love Ohio and love our Country. I’ve studied this race closely and I think J.D. is the most likely to take out the weak, but dangerous, Democrat opponent — dangerous because they will have so much money to spend. [Emphasis added] However, J.D. will...

    A Texas rancher who worked with a Mexican drug cartel to smuggle illegal immigrants and weed into the US was slapped with a 38-year prison sentence, prosecutors said. Cuban citizen Gilberto Morales, 57, coordinated with a cartel out of Porvenir, Chihuahua to smuggle immigrants and more than a ton of marijuana a month across the Rio Grande through his ranch in Fort Hancock, 40 miles east of El Paso, according the US Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Texas. “For more than a year, Gilberto Morales operated his very own smuggling corridor ...

    Our stalwart lawmakers in Washington never cease to amaze. John Binder of Breitbart reports on a recent undertaking on Capitol Hill. It’s an amendment to an amendment that authorizes millions of new dollars for border security. That sounds impressive, until you realize the money is being appropriated for the borders of eight foreign countries! It’s not that our lawmakers don’t care about borders. They do care about the borders of many foreign countries. It’s our own borders many of them aren’t concerned about securing.

    Casar will be among the most progressive members of Congress ever to serve from Texas. During his tenure on the City Council, he was best known for supporting cuts to the police department and his fight against the encampment bans that had translated into homeless citizens living in tents in public parks and under Interstate 35 bridges. He had the backing of prominent progressives like U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, but also the support of prominent locals like Austin Mayor Steve Adler and former state Sen. Wendy Davis. Rodriguez, seen as his most competitive rival, warned...
  • Why 2021 Was A Disastrous Year for America’s Border Security

    Source: Townhall Media/Julio RosasNow that 2021 has come to an end, it is worth reviewing what a disastrous year it was for America’s border security and sovereignty. The year started with President Donald Trump warning his incoming successor that a border surge was looming, and that ripping apart successful policies would lead to a crisis. Tragically, but predictably, Joe Biden ignored the advice of his predecessor, and started tearing proven Trump-era policies apart on his first day in office. On Jan. 20, Biden issued a proclamation terminating Trump’s emergency declaration at the border, and ending funding for the border wall....

    The Biden regime has sneakily convened a forum in Washington, DC, on October 27–28. Its real purpose—contrary to the stated purpose of fighting corruption—is to assure Guatemala’s border with Mexico remains open. Illegal immigrants can continue to flood our country and become Democrat voters. Guatemala—the key to illegal immigration with its 595-mile border with Mexico—is the only land route from South and Central America to the United States. Migrants from all over the world now pass through Guatemala’s borders. They are open thanks to Biden. Under Obama, Biden abused power to place criminal allies in charge of Guatemala’s judiciary and...

    The social spending bill approved by the House Friday in a 220-213 vote includes the most extensive immigration reform package reviewed by Congress in 35 years, albeit in a much reduced version from what proponents originally sought. If the provision is approved by the Senate as-is, the immigration measure in the bill would allow undocumented people present in the U.S. since before 2011 up to 10 years of work authorization, falling short of an initial goal to offer them a pathway to citizenship. The provision approved by the House offers a sort of waiver to immigration laws, using a process...
