    With a border surge now setting records, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have admonished illegal border crossers not to enter the U.S. "Do not come, do not come," as Harris said in Guatemala. Joe has said similar things. Republicans have complained about the warnings not being sincere. Now, a Senate Republican report shows there's proof positive of it. According to Fox News: A new report by Republicans on a Senate subcommittee has concluded that the Biden administration is spending a minimum of approximately $2 billion to suspend construction of the wall at the southern border, even amid a continuing migrant...

    BREAKING: Judge dismisses indictment against ex-Trump adviser Steve Bannon https://t.co/1kkOc1TzEv— The Washington Times (@WashTimes) May 25, 2021 Judge dismisses indictment against Steve Bannon NEW YORK — An indictment against Steve Bannon was dismissed Tuesday over the objection of prosecutors who said it should stand despite Trump’s decision to pardon his former chief strategist. The dismissal came in a written ruling by U.S. District Judge Analisa Torres, who called it the “proper course.” The Manhattan jurist said it was not the practice of the region’s federal courts to remove a defendant from a case’s docket without resolving the indictment. And she...

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday canceled upcoming scheduled arguments in appeals filed by Republican former President Donald Trump's administration defending his funding of the U.S.-Mexico border wall and his so-called "remain in Mexico" asylum policy. Democratic President Joe Biden's administration, which is in the process of changing course on both issues, on Monday had asked the justices to postpone further legal filings in the two cases and to remove them from their oral argument calendar. Biden's administration already has announced plans to discontinue wall construction and suspend the asylum program, potentially making the cases moot. The court was scheduled...

    In a welcome victory for border security advocates, a federal appeals court agreed to lift an injunction that was blocking the Trump administration from tapping military construction funds to build a wall.The 5th Circuit Court, based in New Orleans, ruled 2-1 that wall construction could proceed while the appeal was heard. And the two Republican judges may have put a nail in the coffin of the groups opposing the issue by questioning whether they even had standing to sue in the first place. There are challenges in several circuits to Trump's declaration of a national emergency last year and...

    YUMA, Ariz. (AP) — On a dirt road past rows of date trees, just feet from a dry section of Colorado River, a small construction crew is putting up a towering border wall that the government hopes will reduce — for good — the flow of immigrants who cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.Cicadas buzz and heavy equipment rumbles and beeps before it lowers 30-foot-tall (48-kilometer-tall) sections of fence into the dirt. “Ahí está!” — “There it is!” — a Spanish-speaking member of the crew says as the men straighten the sections into the ground. Nearby, workers pull dates from palm...

    Ann Coulter: Can't America have a little self-respect on immigration? © Getty Images Couldn’t America have a little self-respect? Japan, Denmark and Israel do. Year after year, for decades, America has accepted more refugees than the rest of the world combined. No country we admire does anything close to this. Score one for Donald Trump: In 2017, after he became president, our refugee admissions finally dipped slightly below “more than every other country in the world combined.” Go USA! These aren’t immigrants the host country specifically wanted. We’re not saying, "You know, this country could use some people who know...

    Fox News chief anchor Shepard Smith on Wednesday disputed President Trump’s recent remarks about border wall construction, saying on air that "there is no new wall." Smith's remarks were in response to a tweet from the president that said the wall is "going up very fast." "So far, despite the president's claims to the contrary, there is no new wall," Smith said. "Existing barriers have been replaced. Same span. The total of repaired barrier is about 60 miles along that 2,000-mile border." "The president also said in the tweet that the wall is going up rapidly. It is not. As...

    About 50 miles of brand new wall has been completed by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) along the United States’ southwest border, with more expected to be constructed, according to acting Commissioner Mark Morgan. “Fifty miles of new border wall on the Southwest border and construction continues every day,” Morgan announced in a July 10 Twitter post. “Construction is underway for more than 50 additional miles and more contract awards are anticipated by the end of the year.” Accompanying Morgan’s Twitter post were a few photos, some showing the construction process—others depicting the finished product.

    When is President Donald Trump going to recognize that the best way to deal with the border people is to hire them to build the wall? Hiring the border people to build the wall would create a win / win situation. The border people would win by getting jobs. People living in the United States would win because people entering the country from the south in the future would have to pass though check points where they could be screened for contagious diseases. The recent measles outbreaks demonstrate the potential danger of open borders. Dangerous diseases like tuberculosis that are...

The bollards, or the slats as he prefers to call them, should be painted flat black, a dark hue that would absorb heat in the summer making the metal too hot for climbers to scale. ....She continued, “If any kid in any high school wrote that, they would be sent to the school shrink.
