    WASHINGTON — The Department of Homeland Security has requested more U.S. troops to be deployed at the border to add 160 miles of concertina wire on top of existing border fencing, according to three U.S. officials. If approved by Acting Secretary of Defense Patrick Shanahan, the addition of troops to enhance the fencing could extend the military's current deployment at the border until the end of September, based on the rate of construction, according to two officials. The military mission, which began two months ago, was set to end on Jan. 31. The fencing that is to be reinforced with...
  • VandeHei on MSNBC: Dem 'Enthusiasm' is to Protect Illegals, Not Borders

    I don't think Jim VandeHei realized what a stunning admission he was making. Discussing the shutdown impasse over funding the border wall, the Axios co-founder said: "I think the [Democrat] party's changed on immigration. I think the feeling that they have to appear to be really strong by supporting a lot more border security, that that has waned, and that the enthusiasm of the Democratic party is for protecting immigrants."Think about that. VandeHei spoke of Dems protecting "immigrants." But what kind of immigrants surreptitiously cross the border? By definition, they are illegal immigrants. So VandeHei's statement amounts to a stinging...

    Corporal Ronil Singh is dead, apparently murdered by a gangmember who was here illegally, and who stayed here illegally despite having been busted twice for DUIs. Thank you for ensuring that happened, Democrats. And thank you too, Fredocons, for so ably doing the bidding of your corporate donor cronies who desperately want to keep the foreigner spigot open. Liberals need pliable, reliable replacement voters to buy off with your tax money, and the captains of industry want a pool of eager serfs. The illegals themselves just want to get out of the crummy countries whose policies Democrats expect they are...

    **SNIP** Mary Ann Mendoza, whose police officer son was killed in 2014 by a drunk-driving illegal immigrant with a criminal record, said on "Fox & Friends" that minority leaders Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) and Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) are "committing treasonous acts" when they place the rights of illegal immigrants above legal Americans. "Every politician in D.C. should be listening closely to the American people right now because we have woken up," she said. "We are tired of the lies that come out of their mouth." Mendoza said Democrats shouldn't concentrate on investigating President Trump for crimes and instead focus on how...

    President Trump and the White House are claiming that the newly renegotiated North American trade deal means that Mexico is going to pay for the southern border wall Trump promised on the campaign trail. The argument is part of the White House's position on border security as Trump urges Congress to pony up $5 billion for the wall while lawmakers seek a deal to avoid a shutdown. Yet the administration has struggled to explain how the pact ensures that Mexico will actually foot the bill for the barrier...
  • Billionaire Koch Brothers: ‘Serious Mistake’ to End Welfare-Dependent Immigration to U.S.

    The pro-mass immigration Koch brothers say ending welfare-dependent immigration to the United States would do “serious harm” to the nation and be a “serious mistake.” President Trump’s administration is looking to implement a policy that protects American taxpayers’ dollars from funding the mass importation of welfare-dependent foreign nationals by enforcing a “public charge” rule whereby legal immigrants would be less likely to secure a permanent residency in the U.S. if they have used any forms of welfare in the past, including using Obamacare, food stamps, and public housing. The immigration controls would be a boon for American taxpayers in the...

    President Donald Trump on Wednesday used a terror attack at a famous Christmas market in a small, scenic town in France on Tuesday night to once again argue for more funding for U.S. border security - despite no evidence of links between terror attacks in the U.S. and illegal immigration over the southern border. His call came a day after he threatened to shut down the government if he doesn't get $5 billion for a border wall. "Another very bad terror attack in France," Trump tweeted. "We are going to strengthen our borders even more. Chuck and Nancy must give...

    YUMA, Ariz. – Yuma Sector camera operators observed a group of six illegal aliens, including two small children, traversing over the border wall with assistance, near the San Luis Port of Entry early Monday morning. The children were dropped from the 18-foot wall, which was observed by a Yuma Sector camera operator. The group of six from Guatemala was a family unit, including three children: a 2-year-old, a 7-year- old, and a 10-year-old. All surrendered to U.S. Border Patrol agents who arrived on scene. One child suffered a facial injury, and was treated by agents. All were taken into custody.

    SAN DIEGO— An attempt to smuggle immigrants into the country illegally ended with three people dead and eight seriously injured in a crash in a remote, rugged area of California near the Mexico border, authorities said. The incident began Thursday afternoon when U.S. Border Patrol agents discovered tire tracks for several cars that ran from the international border north into th U.S. The agency calls such incidents "drive-throughs" — instances in which cars illegally enter the U.S., often through remote areas. They found a piece of a vehicle that they recognized as likely being from a pickup truck spotted nearby...

    Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto and local immigration advocates Wednesday called for a united effort to oppose proposed federal rules that would deny green cards to immigrants if they use Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers and other forms of public assistance. The mayor and others said the proposed rule change has spread fear among Pittsburgh’s legal immigrants, who are reluctant to apply for public aid programs even at the risk of losing homes and suffering health problems because they worry they will be denied visas. “What we’re talking about right now is nothing more than hatred,” Peduto said. “It’s hatred of...

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), fresh off her underdog congressional win in New York, is quickly distancing herself from the Trump White House. While the president is sending troops down to the U.S.-Mexico border to prevent the 7,500-strong migrant caravan from entering the U.S., Ocasio-Cortez tweeted Sunday that we have nothing to fear from these individuals who are simply seeking asylum. Asking to be considered a refugee & applying for status isn’t a crime. It wasn’t for Jewish families fleeing Germany.It wasn’t for targeted families fleeing Rwanda.It wasn’t for communities fleeing war-torn Syria.And it isn’t for those fleeing violence in Central...

    Lawyers suing President Donald Trump over his decision to end special protections shielding certain immigrants from deportation are seeking unaired footage from his reality TV show “The Apprentice” to try to bolster their case alleging the move was racially motivated, the attorneys said Wednesday. Lawyers for Civil Rights, which sued Trump in February , has issued subpoenas to MGM Holdings Inc. and Trump Productions LLC demanding any footage shot during the production of the show in which Trump “uses racial and/or ethnic slurs” or “makes remarks concerning race, nationality and/or ethnic background.” Former White House staffer and fellow reality-TV star...

    Each year since 2011, on the first Sunday of November, The Remembrance Project and other patriotic grassroots groups across America have observed their own National Day of Remembrance for Americans Killed by Illegal Aliens. This year, it falls on Sunday, November 4. But as hard as we tried, the media would give us little or no coverage, instead choosing to focus massive amounts of biased footage and news coverage sympathetic to the plight of illegal aliens, falsely characterizing illegals as people like us, “just wanting a better life.” But Congress has intentionally turned a blind eye to this terrible epidemic-sized...

    President Trump said Wednesday he could send up to 15,000 troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, which would surpass the number of soldiers currently stationed in Afghanistan. Speaking to reporters as he left the White House for a campaign rally Wednesday night in Florida, Trump said the number of military personnel on the border "will go up to anywhere between 10,000 and 15,000 military personnel on top of the Border Patrol, ICE, and everybody else at the border." The current number of troops deployed to the border is 5,239, the head of Northern Command, Gen. Terence O'Shaughnessy, said on Tuesday. He...

    The pro-mass immigration, GOP megadonor, billionaire Koch brothers are opposing President Trump’s plan to executively end birthright citizenship, which rewards the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens. On Tuesday, President Trump announced that he is readying an executive order to end birthright citizenship in the U.S. The unilateral move would carry the country into the future on the issue, putting the nation more in line with similar Western countries. Currently, the U.S. and Canada are the only developed nations in the world that offer unrestricted birthright citizenship. The children of illegal aliens are commonly known as “anchor babies,” as they anchor...

    Democrats look the other way as sanctuary state allows criminal illegals to thrive. "How brutal murders and fear kept a town silent. MS-13 is like no other gang.” That may sound like President Trump at one of his rallies but it’s actually the headline of an October 19 Fresno Bee story by award-winning reporter Yesenia Amaro. “MS-13 carved out a reign of terror,” she writes, “resulting in at least 14 brutal murders in and around Mendota from 2015 to 2017.” Amaro charts how this reign of terror developed, and the bloodshed MS-13 has inflicted. “MS-13 slipped into Mendota relatively unnoticed,”...

    As the administration sends 5,200 troops to the border, the host painted GOP rhetoric as midterm election fearmongering. The GOP-fueled hysteria over the Central American migrant caravan traveling north through Mexico is nothing more than midterm election hyperbole, Fox News host Shep Smith insisted Monday. “There is no invasion. No one’s coming to get you. There’s nothing at all to worry about,” he said calmly on “Shepard Smith Reporting” on Monday. “But tomorrow is one week before the midterm election — which is what all of this all about,” he added. Smith tried to calm the public about the caravan...
