    NY Post ^ | Published Feb. 26, 2024, 3:30 p.m. ET | Josh Christenson
    A new poll shows for the first time that a majority of Americans support building a wall along the US-Mexico border — while three-fifths of the country sees illegal immigration under President Biden as a “very serious” problem. The Monmouth University survey released Monday found 53% of respondents favor building a border barrier while 46% say they are opposed. By contrast, 60% of Americans told the same pollster in September 2017, months after former President Donald Trump took office, that they were opposed to a border wall and just 35% said they were in favor of construction. When the question...

    New sections of a border wall being built in California have an anti-climbing feature, according to reports. The top of the barrier erected at Friendship Park between San Diego and Tijuana, Mexico, has a "metal wing or wedge, or a comma on its side with the pointy end hanging over the Mexican side of the border like an awning," according to Fox 5. Pedro Rios, of the American Friends Service Committee, called the additions "techitos," or little rooftops. "It's an anti-climbing feature that's meant to stop people from scaling the border wall," Rios told the station. "It's the first of...

    Sunday released the details of a long-awaited comprehensive border security bill, which also contains a substantial foreign aid component. The discussions, led by Senators James Lankford (R-OK), Krysten Sinema (I-AZ), and Chris Murphy (D-CT), come after months of negotiations with the Biden regime, seeking to address both the ongoing crisis at the U.S. southern border and foreign policy commitments abroad. The 370-page deal, according to Senator Patty Murray (D-WA), Chair of the Senate Appropriations Committee, claims it reflects weeks of good-faith negotiations, balancing domestic concerns with urgent international aid needs. “As Ukraine runs low on ammunition to fend off Putin’s...

    The Supreme Court’s decision .. to order Texas not to protect its border with Mexico will go down in history as one of the court’s most cowardly decisions that could doom our nation — if it is allowed to stand. That decision was not just about razor wire. It was about the role of states in our federal system and the betrayal of the nation — first by a president, and now by two Republican-appointed justices. ....

    I wish this was a headline from the Babylon Bee but no, this is real life.. Remember when Democrats and RINOs in Congress told President Donald Trump that $15 billion was too much for a border wall? Then they said $6 billion was too much. Then they said $3.2 billion was too much. The border wall was never finished and the Biden-Harris regime has been practically begging illegal aliens to come across and to bring friends. Lots of friends. Lots of military-aged male friends. Good times.. As a result, the Office of Refugee Resettlement, which is supposed to be working...

    U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) joined a group of her Republican colleagues in introducing a bill that would authorize U.S. states bordering Canada or Mexico to place temporary structures on federal land to secure its border. While the U.S. Constitution currently provides for the protection of states “against invasion” and reserves the right of states to defend themselves, states are unable to place structures on federal land without first obtaining authorization from the federal government under current law. If enacted, Blackburn and her colleagues’ Creating Obstructions Necessary to Address Illegal and Nefarious Entry Rapidly (CONTAINER) Act would allow border states...

    Elections have consequences. Stolen elections have catastrophic consequences. Joe Biden is asking Mexican President Lopex Obrador for assistance in curbing the invasion of illegal aliens into the US southern border. Over 10 million illegals have walked across the border into the United States since Joe Biden took over. Last month, December, saw a new record with over 300,000 illegals making it into the United States from Mexico. This is a catastrophic invasion fulling caused and supported by the Democrat Party and the weak Republicans who refuse to protect their country. This comes after President Trump record reduction in illegal migration...

    Looking at the current situation at the US border, it’s hard not to think that this isn’t just a massive random mess but a deliberate one. More and more people are starting to believe that the so-called “Great Replacement” theory isn’t just a conspiracy after all. The left is quick to label this “Great Replacement Theory” as “racist,” and they don’t hold back in attacking anyone who dares to bring it up. But that hasn’t stopped Tucker Carlson. He’s never shied away from discussing it, and he dove right into the controversy with his typical Tucker style. ... Vivek Ramaswamy...

Kennedy Jr. sparred with Ball over who is to blame for the Palestinians’ suffering in Gaza amidst the ongoing conflict between Israel and...

    Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Chief Alejandro Mayorkas on Wednesday said securing the border and limiting asylum is “violence to our fundamental values.” 12,000 illegal aliens flooded over the border in the last 24 hours in the highest single-day total ever recorded. Bill Melugin reported from Lukeville, Arizona on Wednesday and showed a massive line of illegals at the border. Most of the illegals are military-aged single men from around the world including Africa and Syria.

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 31, 2023 | Zachary Faria
    If you expect former President Donald Trump to fulfill even one campaign promise he is making for 2024, you would have to explain why he is openly mocking the idea that he could fulfill the promise that defined his entire candidacy in 2016. The core promise of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign was that he would build a wall on the southern border and make Mexico pay for it. This is what defined his tough-on-illegal-immigration approach, and he even mocked detractors who said that he would not or could not possibly do it. As late as October 2020, less than one...

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has ordered the state's National Guard to install a barrier in some parts along the Texas/New Mexico state line. Officials say guard members have been placing concertina wire in an area close to Sunland Park, New Mexico, which shares a border with El Paso, Texas. Footage shot by KVIA shows some of the fencing running along the Rio Grande. ABC News has reached out to Texas officials, who have not yet provided an estimate of how much fencing is being installed. Abbott says the barrier is meant to deter migrants who cross from Mexico into New...

    White House National Security Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby blamed Republican governors for "wrecking the Administration's border policy. The purpose of taking in all the people illegally crossing over from Mexico is to modify the demographics of states governed by Republicans and turn them into states governed by Democrats. But with tens of thousands of these migrants being given free bus rides to sanctuary states and cities, the burdens of caring for these people are shifted where we don't want them." Under pressure from New York Democrats to do something about the flood of migrants arriving in their state,...

    MEXICO CITY, Oct 6 (Reuters) - The U.S. government does not want to build new sections of wall on its border with Mexico, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Friday, expressing doubt that the planned construction would be carried out. "It's pure publicity," Lopez Obrador said in a regular morning press conference, after the Biden administration announced it would build additional sections of border wall, carrying forward a signature policy of the Trump administration. A high-ranking delegation of U.S. officials met Thursday with their Mexican counterparts, among them U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken. "They don't want to...

    President Joe Biden on Thursday defended his administration’s decision to waive 26 federal laws in South Texas to allow for construction of roughly 20 miles of additional border wall, saying he had no choice but to use the Trump-era funding for the barrier to stop illegal migration from Mexico. Asked if he thought such walls work, he said flatly, “No.” The new construction was announced in June, but the funds were appropriated in 2019 before the Democratic president took office. Biden said he tried to get lawmakers to redirect the money but Congress refused, and the law requires the funding...

    WASHINGTON, Oct 5 (Reuters) - President Joe Biden's administration said on Thursday it will add sections to a border wall to stave off record migrant crossings from Mexico, a reversal that embraces a signature policy of former President Donald Trump. Trump is the frontrunner for the Republican Party nomination to challenge Biden, a Democrat, in the 2024 presidential race. Trump made building border barriers a central tenet of his first campaign for president with the rally chant, "Build That Wall." One of Biden's first actions after taking office in January 2021 was to issue a proclamation pledging that "no more...
