    U.S. Customs and Border Protection. It released its latest Border Wall Status report on Jan. 8. According to CBP, the U.S. has 771 miles of barriers along the southwest border. Under the Trump Administration and since January 2017, a total of 453 miles have been worked on... 373 miles worth of construction has been completed in place of dilapidated and or outdated designs. 80 miles worth of border wall construction happened in locations where no barriers previously existed.

  • Yet Another Caravan Forming to Test American Border Resolve: Migrants speak of reaching 'paradise', but their test of Biden may be premature

    Yet another migrant caravan is forming in Honduras, the latest driven by hope that an incoming Joe Biden presidency will open gates closed by the outgoing Trump administration.According to fresh media reports, this caravan hopes to leave San Pedro Sula, Honduras, on January 15, which in the unlikely event it can get past Guatemala and Mexican pandemic-related border closures, seems timed to reach the U.S. southern border by Biden's January 20 inauguration. Reuters reports that the caravan is being organized on social media, including one Facebook group that boasts more than 5,500 members who exchange tips and advice on how...

    Source: Official White House Photo by Shealah Craighead>Much has been written and discussed recently about what will be the legacy of the Trump administration. The political media and left-wing activists are feverishly at work writing their version in the hope that it will be accepted by the public as common knowledge. It is unsurprisingly the most negative version possible, with allegations of inciting violence in the Capitol building and long ago-debunked tales of Russian collusion. This is nonsense. The most enduring legacy of the Trump administration will be the construction of 450 miles of new wall at our southern border....
  • Judge blocks dramatic overhaul of U.S. asylum system from taking effect

    (Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge in California on Friday blocked the Trump administration from implementing a new rule that would have dramatically reshaped the U.S. asylum system and restricted asylum eligibility for immigrants seeking refuge in the United States. The injunction undermines the Trump administration's last-minute efforts to solidify its hardline immigration policies before U.S. president-elect Joe Biden takes office later this month. U.S. District Judge James Donato of the Northern District of California granted an injunction sought by immigrant advocacy groups seeking to block the rule, which the Trump administration published on Dec. 11 and was set to...

    A federal appeals court in California on Thursday ruled to lift a ban on President Donald Trump’s proclamation that blocks immigrants from entering the United States if they lack health insurance or the means to pay for hospital bills. In a Dec. 31 opinion (pdf), the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said that Trump acted within his authority when, in October 2019, he signed the Proclamation on the Suspension of Entry of Immigrants Who Will Financially Burden the United States Healthcare System. The ruling reverses a federal court decision to block the implementation of the president’s...

    California’s most vulnerable immigrants have faced unprecedented challenges this year, with some weighing whether it’s worth staying in the United States altogether. Ten months of a pandemic that has disproportionately sickened immigrants and devastated some of the industries that rely on immigrant labor, combined with years of anti-immigrant policies by the Trump administration have exacerbated insecurities for undocumented people and immigrants working low-wage jobs across California.

    BP agents said they were seeking warrant for raid, humanitarian workers sayJust before Christmas Eve, Border Patrol agents on horseback surrounded No More Death's humanitarian aid station south of Tucson and told volunteers they were pursuing a warrant to raid the camp, the group said.If agents do conduct a raid, it would be the third incursion into the camp near Arivaca, Ariz., in five months, coming near the end of a spike in the number of remains found in southwestern Arizona—a likely sign that a larger number of people are attempting to cross illegally, and are dying in remote stretches...

    On Thursday, I had a long phone conversation with a politician in Mexico. Forgive me for using "a source familiar with the situation" rather than giving you his name. Trust me that this guy knows the situation, and I cannot give you his name. We discussed the potential change from President Trump to Biden regarding U.S.-Mexico policies. Let me summarize the conversation by saying my friend is sure that a President Biden is going to get an earful from President Andrés López-Obrador about the border. In other words, Mexico is very happy that they've shut down their southern border and...

    Seattle's "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone" is back, apparently, after what was previously referred to as CHOP drove headlines this summer after police belatedly moved to dismantle large portions of it. It has managed to survive, in it's current form emerging recently at Cal Anderson Park as more of a homeless shelter occupying a public park.But the central irony no doubt missed by those advocating it as some kind of model far-Left utopia is that this week the encampment has erected a large "border wall" after the city announced authorities plan on clearing the area.Newsweek reports Friday that a "border wall...

    Since Election Day, the Department of Homeland Security has been preparing for an onslaught of Central American migrants who are being driven by cartel organizations to try to enter the U.S. Southwest border, according to a South Texas congressman. U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, told Border Report on Friday afternoon that he was briefed by DHS a couple weeks ago “that the bad guys are starting to promote to people of Central America and Mexico that ‘the border will be open; it will be different so start getting ready to come.'”... Cuellar said drug cartels are “promoting and staging” migrants...

This is one of 29 construction projects being performed by 13 different contractors from San Diego to Brownsville, Texas.

U.S. Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, on Wednesday sent Biden a letter asking that the new administration rescind the national emergency declaration and reprogrammed funding; direct the Department of Justice to dismiss all condemnation suits; terminate for convenience all current and pending Army Corps of Engineer contracts; and rescind Homeland Security waiver authority relating to the construction of new border barriers.

    Top Trump administration officials, eager to continue their immigration containment policies into a second term, are warning that a shift in the direction pursued by President-elect Joe Biden will turn the United States-Mexico border into an illegal immigrant crisis again. With a “been there, seen that” approach, officials said that there are already indications of a coming border rush by illegal immigrants who believe Biden will be the next president and will take a more liberal open-door approach than former President Barack Obama. “Joe Biden has already planted the fast-growing seeds of his first humanitarian crisis by saying they wouldn't...

    So I've been checking up time to time on the progress on the construction of the borderwall Overall despite the Set backs and hurdles it looks like Trump has kept his promise for the most part on getting the wall built, a good bulk of it is now up(415 miles at this time of writing) although it looks like it isn't all going to be finished by the time he leaves office. So I'm just curious how much of the wall actually need to be put up? As I understand not all the US-Mexico border is porous, a good...

    <p>A federal appeals court ruled Friday that a lower court was wrong to bar the Trump administration from taking $3.6 billion from military construction projects for a border wall.</p><p>A panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said that El Paso County and the nonprofit Border Network for Human Rights did not have the standing to challenge President Donald Trump’s redirecting funds from more than 100 military construction projects, including a $20 million road project at a base located in the city. The appeals court found that neither the county nor the Border Network proved it was directly harmed by Trump’s move. The court reversed a December 2019 ruling by U.S. District Judge David Briones.</p>
