    PACOLET, S.C. (WSPA) – An investigation is underway after a child’s remains were found in the wall of a home in Pacolet on Saturday. Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger said his office responded Saturday night to the home, located on Milliken Street, regarding possible remains being found within a wall of a residence. Clevenger said the house was being remodeling when the remains were found. In his 30 years as the Spartanburg County Coroner, Clevenger said this is unlike anything he’s ever seen. “It does shock the conscience of most people,” Clevenger said. “I would say 99.9% of the people,...

Some sections reported nearly a 90 percent decrease in illegal entries compared to last year. U.S. Customs and Border Protection Acting Commissioner Mark Morgan tweeted a series of videos highlighting new sections of border walls. The commissioner said the completion of new walls decreased drug and human smuggling by significant numbers in these sections were no infrastructure previously existed.

    Congress will approve $1.375 billion for a wall along the southern border as part of the $1.4 trillion omnibus spending bill for the next fiscal year, according to GOP sources. Congress is expected to pass the measure on Monday along with a $900 billion COVID-19 relief bill. The White House signaled Sunday evening that President Trump would sign it... Budget law requires the government to spend appropriated funds, but it is unclear whether President-elect Joe Biden will seek a way to circumvent the law or whether Congress would take action to enforce the law. The funding for the wall in...

    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...

    GUADALUPE CANYON, Ariz. - Work crews ignite dynamite blasts in the remote and rugged southeast corner of Arizona, forever reshaping the landscape as they pulverize mountaintops in a rush to build more of President Donald Trump’s border wall before his term ends next month. Each blast in Guadalupe Canyon releases puffs of dust as workers level land to make way for 30-foot-tall (9-meter-tall) steel columns near the New Mexico line. Heavy machines crawl over roads gouged into rocky slopes while one tap-tap-taps open holes for posts on U.S. Bureau of Land Management property. Trump has expedited border wall construction in...

    So I've been checking up time to time on the progress on the construction of the borderwall https://www.cbp.gov/border-security/along-us-borders/border-wall-system 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>HOUSTON - 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>

    More than anything, it was “The Wall” that got President Trump elected four years ago. Trump’s willingness to tackle illegal immigration earned him unswerving devotion from voters, including Hispanics who live in the United States legally. It also brought Trump unstinting vitriol from anti-American leftists and corporate interests who organize and bankroll the Democrat Party and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s campaign for president. Four years ago, the battle cry for Mr. Trump was “Build The Wall!” Today, the battle cry from Democrats and their monied interests is: “Mr. Biden, tear down that wall!” In his first term, Trump...

    YUMA — Dozens of construction workers labor like a bustling colony of ants — only this colony is located along a 126-mile-long portion of the United States's southern border with Mexico. Standing 100 feet from one of these construction sites, watching workers install the concrete-filled steel beams into the ground feels painfully slow, but driving along the banks of the river and canal, the workers' years of labor is overwhelmingly evident and compelling. The wall is up, everywhere. Workers decked in orange vests operate the yellow construction machines in a robotic fashion as they drop the maroon pieces of steel...

    On Thursday night when Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden angrily accused President Trump of a “criminal” family separation policy that had “lost track” of more than 500 migrant children at the U.S.-Mexico border, he was repeating an inaccurate and misleading news report that had circulated earlier this week. “What happened? Their kids were ripped from their arms and separated and now they cannot find over 500 sets of those parents and those kids are alone,” Biden said. “Nowhere to go, nowhere to go. It’s criminal.”

    "Wow" was all I was able to say as the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Blackhawk flew alongside the U.S.-Mexico border and the difference between the old "wall" system and the new wall system under construction came into view... The old "wall" that covers large lengths of the border is laughably easy to get over. It consists of barbed wire fencing, held together by fragile-looking wooden posts and Normandy barriers intended to stop illegal vehicle crossings.

    The Supreme Court said Monday that it will hear a challenge to the Trump administration's use of Pentagon money to build the southern border wall and also its appeal of a ruling that blocked a policy sending asylum applicants to Mexico while they wait for their appeals to be heard. A federal appeals court ruled in June that the government improperly diverted $2.5 billion of Pentagon counterdrug program money to build more than 100 miles of border wall... The Supreme Court will hear the case early next year, with a decision by the spring. But if Joe Biden wins the...

    If Trump wins, he'll finish the current Wall. If the Democrats have enough ballots - real or manufactured - to win the White House, then they will also have taken the Senate, in which case the current Wall will be torn down. And within a decade or so, Mexico will build a much more impenetrable version of The Wall to keep out illegal-immigrant Americans attempting to flee the hell on earth they voted for.
