    Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has described as correct the offer of French President Francois Hollande to take steps to close the Syrian-Turkish border. He said as much while talking to reporters on Wednesday. "Going back to the news conference of Presidents of France and the United States Francois Hollande and Barack Obama in Washington, I noticed that the French president suggested taking steps to close the Turkish-Syrian border to stop both the flow of militants and terrorist financing," the Russian minister said. "It is significant that President Obama did not respond to this in any way, but I think...

    According to a new Ipsos-MORI poll, 48% of Americans -and 44% Britons- now favor halting all immigration into their besieged countries... stopping not just Muslims, but everybody. These numbers represent about a five-point jump... Other fun facts: 95% of people in the UK -and 91% of Americans- expect there to be a major terrorist strike on their respective homeland over the coming 12 months... that's a pretty dark outlook to have to get up and face everyday, and over time it's bound to take a toll on you.

    Donald Trump is brilliant. Trump is a chess master. His instincts about immigration and the border were 100 percent on the money. First of all, with the terrible Islamic State terrorist attack in Paris, immigration and our open border with Mexico just became the No. 1 issue in America. All the presidential candidates are now playing on Trump’s home turf. Trump is in command of the most important issue in America. Next, always remember Trump wrote the book on negotiation. It’s called “The Art of the Deal.” Well his new book should be called “The Art of the Immigration Deal.”...

    Former Maryland Gov.

The comments came after O’Malley himself blasted Clinton over her immigration record on Sunday at an immigration forum in Nevada which she did attend, a fact that the former Gov. was happy to underscore. Clinton’s border wall comments came in response to a question from an audience member who asked “What you think about securing the border with...

    It's true that in 2006, the Republican-controlled House and a large bipartisan majority in the Senate passed, and President Bush signed, the Secure Fence Act, requiring 700 additional miles of double chain-link and barbed-wire fences with lights and camera poles. But in 2007, the Homeland Security Department complained of being, er, fenced in, arguing that different types of terrain required different barriers. So Cruz's predecessor, Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison, authored an amendment that DHS would not be required "to install fencing . .. if the Secretary determines that the use or placement of such resources is not the most appropriate...

    On Thursday, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio traded barbs over immigration policy. But it wasn't the usual sort of immigration debate for a Republican primary. Cruz attacked Rubio's position, based on his Senate voting record. He argued that Rubio had not only proposed the so-called "gang of eight" immigration bill, but he had also voted against amendments that would have strengthened border security and limited immigration. Rubio, instead of disingenuously trying to change his position to please anyone, instead argued Cruz's position is closer to his own than he lets on. "Ted is a supporter of legalizing people that are...

Rubio evaded the question by blaming Americans’ supposed lack of skills. “We need to get back to training people in this country to do the jobs of the 21st century… The best way to close this gap is to...

The most important one is that there is broad support for some components of his immigration platform, even among Hispanics. Yes, you read that right. Polls show that many Hispanics agree with Trump that illegal immigration is a huge problem. The eventual GOP nominee should, of course, reject the divisive, inflammatory language Trump and his supporters have often used to make the case for reform. But there are smart policy ideas buried under all that rhetoric. They ought to be incorporated into the official party platform. What's more, many Hispanic...

Hungary and Bulgaria have made preliminary inquiries about buying the Israeli-designed fences, according to an Israeli business source who declined to be named due to the sensitivity of the discussions.

    The debate over the future of the nations estimated 11.3 million unauthorized immigrants is on the political front burner once more. President Barack Obama set the stage in November when he announced new executive actions (now tied up in court) to prevent the deportation of millions of unauthorized immigrants, expanding 2012s original program aimed mostly at providing relief to those brought to the United States as children. Illegal immigration has dominated the Republican presidential campaign, particularly after Donald Trumps call for deporting all undocumented immigrants in the U.S. and building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Others have called for...

    NACO, Arizona As a motorcade carrying GOP presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson down to a service road behind part of the border fence that was built here, there were no Border Patrol agents in sight. The fencewhich local law enforcement from the Cochise County sheriffs office confirms could easily be cut through with a blow-torch, something illegal aliens do quite frequentlyends a few miles up the road.

    Good news. While the Mexican government accuses Americans who want a wall, illegal alien criminals to be deported from U.S. citiesand increased security along the southern border ofbeing scared bigots, they're cracking down on Americans and other foreigners walking in an out of their country. FromAP (bolding is mine):Walking into Mexico at the nation's busiest border crossing with the United States is no longer an uninterrupted stroll for foreigners. Pedestrians and motorists have generally entered Mexico unencumbered along the 1,954-mile border with the United States. Now, pedestrians going to Tijuana from San Diego at the San Ysidro crossing must choose...

    FLORENCE, Arizona Nobody does, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu told Breitbart News when asked who has operational control of this region of the United States of America. Babeu was on a helicopter tour of Mexican drug cartel scout locations in caves in the side of mountains throughout the desert about 70 miles inside the U.S. border. Essentially, that means U.S. sovereignty is gone for hundreds, perhaps thousands, of square miles throughout the American southwest.

    When Fox News, GOPe or any garden variety entity/person/party, goes after Trump, they are attacking the MESSAGE, not the messenger. We who like what Trump is saying (and I'm a Cruz girl)are under attack by all the voices out there that claim we shouldn't be listening to him. This includes Glenn Beck and his team. When they attack the messenger, they're really attacking the message and when they attack the message they're attacking us, those that believe in the message. This is why every single candidate that has attacked Trump has swirled down the drain. The harder they swing at...

    Many Republican entertainers are clearly smitten with former reality TV star Donald Trump, but for conservative commentator Glenn beck, this makes no sense. Trump, a longtime crony capitalist, supports many liberal positions, including increased gun control and single-payer healthcare. ... "I get it if you are tired of politicians, A Republican progressive, or you are only about winning," Beck wrote in a message posted at Facebook [link at URL]. "Perhaps you are angry and you just want to make someone pay or just want something done and you don't carte how it gets done, but what PRINCIPLES does he have...
