    During an interview with NewsNation aired on Wednesday’s broadcast of “The Hill,” 2024 Republican presidential candidate Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis argued that if his rival Republican candidate former President Donald Trump had followed his promise to build a wall on the border, “it would have been much more difficult for Biden to get away with” the damage he’s done on the border.DeSantis said, “I do think, when he’s saying things, like, in Iowa, the other day, that, well, he couldn’t follow his campaign promise to have Mexico build the border — pay for the border wall, because there was, no...

    Criticizing a rival might not seem very notable in a presidential campaign. But Donald J. Trump is no ordinary rival, and Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida has been wary of alienating the former president’s base.---------------- Since the start of his presidential campaign, Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida has pulled his punches during speeches to voters, choosing not to attack the man leading him by 40 points in many national Republican primary polls. But in recent stump speeches in California, South Carolina, Florida and Iowa, Mr. DeSantis has started attacking former President Donald J. Trump more directly, drawing laughter and applause...

    ALTIMORE — In the wake of a shooting that left five people injured during homecoming festivities, Morgan State University leaders announced Tuesday they plan to build a wall around most of the northeast Baltimore campus and station security personnel at entrances and exits. The wall would extend existing barriers by about 8,000 feet (2,400 meters) to encircle 90% of campus and effectively “eliminate unfettered access,” university President David Wilson said during a campus town hall. “We’re doing this, let me be clear, not to keep out our neighbors and our community writ large; we are doing it to keep out...

    Biden (and his handlers) frantically made a gut-wrenching flip/flop on definitely needing a border wall completed ASAP. So far no good explanation as to why he had to write Trump's commercial for him, totally admitting without saying Trump was Right.

    The Biden administration plans to move forward with new border wall construction along the U.S.-Mexico border, a policy that Democrats have viewed as a "racist" and "ineffective" solution to flaws in the immigration system. resident Biden, speaking after his administration announced border wall construction in Texas, said at the White House on Thursday that he tried to "redirect" the money for the project and denied that border walls work. Biden's comments contrast those made on Wednesday by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who cited an "acute and immediate need" to waive 26 federal laws to construct border walls...

    resident Joe Biden on Friday dismissed criticism of his decision to start rebuilding Donald Trump's border wall, shruggin off anger by repeating his argument that he had no choice. 'Oh, the wall thing, is that what you're talking about?,' Biden said when asked why his party didn't reappropriate the funds when it controlled Congress. 'Yeah. I was told I had no choice. Congress passes legislation to build something, whether it is an aircraft carrier, wall, or provide for a tax cut, I can't say I don't like it.' Many Democrats are furious with the president for resuming construction on the...

    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...

    White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre clarified that resident Biden does not actually want the border wall expedited by his administration. Jean-Pierre, speaking to the press Thursday, said Biden is opposed to the border wall demanded by his Department of Homeland Security and immigration officials. "This is a law that we are complying with. We have asked Congress multiple times to reappropriate [funding for the wall]. This is not the way that we believe is going to be effective here," she said. "We believe in modernizing the system, not actually building a wall. The president said himself he does not...

    The Biden administration has paved the way for the construction of a new wall along the southern border in Texas by waiving more than a dozen federal laws in a stark reversal of its previous stance on the physical barrier. The Department of Homeland Security announced the plan to bypass long drawn-out environmental reviews in order to expedite border wall construction in Starr County, TX as the administration struggles to handle an ongoing migrant crisis that has strained local and federal resources. The area where construction is planned has seen “high illegal entry,” according to authorities. “There is presently an...

    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...

    EXCLUSIVE: Former President Donald Trump's campaign took aim at President Biden late Wednesday after his administration admitted there was an "immediate need" for a wall at the U.S. border with Mexico. "President Trump is always right. That’s why he built close to 500 miles of powerful new wall on the border, and it would have been finished by now. Instead, Crooked Joe Biden turned our country into one giant sanctuary for dangerous criminal aliens," a Trump campaign spokesperson told Fox News Digital. DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas cited an "acute and immediate need" to waive dozens of federal laws in order...

    DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is citing an "acute and immediate need" to waive dozens of federal laws in order to build a border wall in south Texas where illegal migration has surged, a sharp contrast to dismissals of the use of such barriers in the early days of the administration. The agency posted an announcement on the U.S. Federal Registry which outlines construction in Starr County in the Rio Grande Valley Sector -- where the administration says there is "high illegal entry." The agency says there have been over 245,000 migrant encounters in the sector this fiscal year. Mayorkas says...

    Even in blue-leaning New York, a significant number of residents want the US government to construct a wall along the entire southern border with Mexico to curb illegal immigration, a new survey revealed. The Siena College Poll released Tuesday found that roughly 4 in 10 New York State respondents — 41% — support the border wall championed by former Republican President Donald Trump and abandoned by his successor, Democratic President Biden. Half of New Yorkers — 50% — said they oppose a border wall blanketing the entire southern border, with the remaining respondents undecided. Even in the immigrant-heavy metropolis of...

    *** A year later, the migrant waves (Abbot) helped set in motion have put northern “sanctuary” cities increasingly on edge, their budgets stretched, their communities strained. And a border crisis that has animated Republican politics for years is now dividing the Democratic Party. Humanitarian impulses are crashing into desperate resource constraints and once-loyal Democratic allies have reluctantly joined Republicans to train their fire on President Biden. Eric Adams, the mayor of the nation’s largest city, declared this week that without a federal bailout and clampdown at the border, swelling migration “will destroy New York City.” The nation’s second-largest city, Los...
