    Southern border agents arrested sixteen people on the FBI's terror watchlist last month as border arrests are set to outpace record numbers encountered in the last year. It brings the total number of encounters for the 2023 fiscal year to 69, which is on the trajectory to exceeding the 98 encounters made in the year prior. It comes as Republicans demand answers for why the Biden administration is spending millions to store unused border wall panels as the country is inundated with illegal migrants risking their lives to cross onto American soil, and enough drugs to kill five times the...

    Several national grassroots organizations on Monday joined Americans for Citizen Voting to voice our opposition to a new law (Local Resident Voting Rights Act) that allows non-citizens to vote in D.C.’s elections. The change in law, unfortunately, went into effect the next day. The purpose of our press conference was to put pressure on Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to bring up for a vote SJR 5 and SJR 6 which bans non-citizen voting in The District.I was joined by Election Transparency Initiative‘s National Chairman Ken Cuccinelli, J.

    In a scathing opinion on Wednesday that questions the credibility of the Department of Homeland Security, U.S. District Court Judge T. Kent Wetherell II for the Northern District of Florida has ordered a stop to the Biden administration’s “Parole Plus Alternatives to Detention” (“Parole+ATD”) policy that has been illegally releasing hundreds of thousands of aliens into the U.S., concluding that it violates the Administrative Procedure Act, which governs rulemaking by federal agencies. In Florida v. U.S., the state of Florida is claiming that the DHS is violating the mandatory detention required in federal immigration law by releasing aliens “en masse...

    A group of at least 1,000 migrants rushed the Paso Del Norte bridge linking Mexico to the U.S. in El Paso, Texas, on Sunday, to gain access into the United States, video shows. Crowd control measures were used when the group of mainly Venezuelan migrants continued to press forward, though according to sources at the border, the efforts were thwarted. Videos show migrants of all ages pressing toward the fenced border, with some putting their hands in the air to encourage others to continue moving forward. Another video shows the moment the migrants pushed onto the bridge and began running...

    Senator Bob Menendez (D-NY) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he has concerns President Joe Biden could become the “asylum denier-in-chief” if he restates a family detention policy. Menendez said, “The best part of the administration’s immigration policy over the first two years is that they ended family detention, which proved to be a failure under both the Obama and Trump administrations as a way to deter individuals from coming. What we need is a comprehensive plan to deal with the border.”

    The “slippery slope” isn’t a fallacy, it’s a tactic. That’s one of the truths the political right must internalize. For far too long, on nearly every issue of importance, the mainstream conservative movement has enabled the Left’s destructive march of “progress” though society by succumbing to the leftists’ narrative that critiques of their policy are nothing more than alarmist slippery-slope fallacies. “We don’t want to take away your guns, we just want commonsense gun reform” has now become “Yes, we do want to take all your guns away.” And the Left’s “We just want tolerance for homosexuals” has now become...

    We've all heard about the four Americans who ran into a cartel at the U.S.-Mexico border. It was two dead in Matamoros. Shortly after, Senator Graham said we should "designate Mexican drug cartels as Foreign Terrorist Organizations and authorize the use of military force against them."Then came a speech by President López-Obrador. The first part was nationalism and totally expected:"We are not going to allow any foreign government to intervene, much less a foreign government's armed forces," López Obrador told reporters during a press conference. "We are not a protectorate of the United States, nor a colony of the United...

    Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador called for all Hispanics residing in the United States to vote against Republicans, saying "they are a corrupt, inhumane, and hypocritical party. They say they are for freedom, yet they actively harass the entrepreneurs who facilitate the movement of people and merchandise across this border. Now, Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-SC) is calling for US troops to enter Mexico and kill these entrepreneurs." Graham defended himself by pointing out "I've been a leading proponent for getting our troops to engage in the fighting in Ukraine to help preserve their borders, but people have criticized me...

    When Republican border governors began busing illegal aliens that the federal government released into their states to northern big cities like New York, Washington, and Chicago, the Democratic mayors in those cities whined incessantly that they were being forced to make good on their promises to be a welcome haven for illegal aliens. Actually, their whine was more of a political attack. “It is unimaginable what the governor of Texas has done, when you think about this country, a country that has always been open to those who were fleeing persecution,” New York City Mayor Eric Adams said. “We’ve always...

    Up until now, I've not been particularly impressed with the U.K.'s new prime minister, Rishi Sunak, who comes off as sort of a British version of a Mitt Romney-style corporate RINO, not a leftist, but certainly no Margaret Thatcher, either.But he's come up with some surprises. Here are his tweets on how he plans to disincentivize illegal immigration, a problem that's almost as bad over there as it is here: Today we are introducing new laws that mean if you come to the UK illegally you will be banned from ever re-entering our country. This is how we will break...

    A federal judge in Florida has struck down the Biden administration’s use of policies to mass release migrants into the U.S. interior is unlawful, accusing the administration of turning the border into a "meaningless line in the sand." Judge T. Kent Wetherell ruled in response to a lawsuit from the state of Florida, which alleged the administration’s mass release of migrants via humanitarian parole into Alternatives to Detention -- known as "Parole +ATD" -- is unlawful. In a scathing opinion Wednesday, Wetherell stated the Biden administration had "effectively turned the Southwest Border into a meaningless line in the sand and...

    The Left has spent most of the last few days howling over Joe Biden’s reversal on Washington DC’s reckless criminal-justice “reform” bill. Imagine what they will do if and when Biden decides to reverse his own reckless border policies. With the pressure building for border security after the kidnapping and murders of Americans over the weekend, Biden won’t have much choice but to make changes.According to the New York Times, that time may have arrived:The Biden administration is considering reviving the practice of detaining migrant families who cross the border illegally — the same policy the president shut down over...

    Business owners and workers in a Democrat-run North Carolina tourist town said their downtown district is deteriorating amid rising crime, rampant homelessness and diminishing police. Multiple people who work in downtown Asheville, North Carolina, bemoaned the condition of the city and pinpointed a lack of police presence to its decline, according to an investigation by local outlet Asheville Watchdog. "We really need beat cops, police on bicycles," Rose Garfinkle, who lives and works downtown, told the outlet. "The lack of a police presence is noticeable. Things have taken a turn in the last five years." Violent crime has spiked in...

    The Texas Republican Party on Saturday censured Rep. Tony Gonzales, R-Texas, for his votes on issues including same-sex marriage, gun restrictions and border security, deciding the votes violated the priorities and principles of the party. Gonzales, who represents Texas’ 23rd Congressional District stretching from western San Antonio to El Paso, was censured by the Medina County Republican Party last month for taking actions “in opposition to the core principles of the Republican Party of Texas.” On Saturday, the 64-member State Republican Executive Committee voted in favor of the resolution, 57-5, with one abstention, at its quarterly meeting in Austin.

    My wife works at the Minnesota state legislature, and the other day she was describing the scene as the Minnesota State Senate passed a bill that would grant illegal immigrants the right to get driver’s licenses.The concept itself has pros and cons–mainly having to do with ensuring that illegal immigrants be forced to carry insurance if and when they are on the road. I dislike the idea itself but understand how others might make a policy argument for it.What I cannot understand is the fact that illegal immigrants have been testifying before our legislature, threatening to vote legislators out of...

    In an interview with Chris Wallace on CNN, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas explained that "when I say the border is secure this doesn't mean that people aren't able to cross the border illegally. It means that we are able to prevent Republicans from blocking the entry of foreigners that the Administration believes will help make the country stronger." "Surveys have shown that people are coming here because the President has invited them to come," the Secretary pointed out. "Their gratitude for being admitted and gaining their fair share of the benefits and amenities the US has...

    What's happening at the southern U.S. border with Mexico is in fact an invasion, Kinney County Sheriff Brad Coe says. “We’re experiencing a silent invasion of military age men,” Coe told The Center Square when describing what his deputies have been increasingly facing over the past two years. He spoke with The Center Square during an Operation Lone Star task force multi-day operation during which law enforcement officers rescued foreign nationals from a burning vehicle and revived a five-year-old girl being smuggled who’d been stashed inside of a car’s trunk. The “silent invasion,” Coe said, is being committed primarily by...
