    President Trump via Twitter ^ | 12/09/17 | Donald J. Trump
    No American should be separated from their loved ones because of preventable crime committed by those illegally in our country. Every Senator and Congressman will have to make a choice: do they want to protect American citizens or do they want to protect criminal aliens?

    The United States notified the United Nations that it will no longer take part in the global compact on migration, saying it undermines the nation's sovereignty. The US has been a part of the New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants since it was formed last year. The declaration aims to ensure the rights of migrants, help them resettle and provide them with access to education and jobs.

    While we have all been watching the southern border and wondering when the wall will finally be built, we have ignored a growing issue with our northern neighbors. As ISIS teams up with Latin American drug cartels to create one of the deadliest threats to US security, we have failed to notice that Trudeau’s government is dealing with returning Jihadists by teaching them poetry and letting them wander free. As ISIS have begun to lose major ground in Iraq and Syria, they (and Hezbolah and Boko Haram) have joined up with the drug cartels as a way of funding their...
  • GOP includes money for Trump’s border wall in Senate spending bill (BOOM!)

    Senate Republicans have included $1.6 billion for the first installment of President Trump’s border wall in the new homeland security spending bill released Tuesday, keeping the president’s marquee immigration plan on track. While avoiding the term “wall,” the Senate bill calls for $1.6 billion in funding for “physical barriers” and border roads — matching Mr. Trump’s original request for money to build or repair fencing along 74 more miles of the U.S.-Mexico line....

    HOUSTON — The party game Cards Against Humanity says it's bought U.S.-Mexico border land and hired a lawyer to try to stop President Donald Trump's proposed border wall. A promotion called "Cards Against Humanity Saves America" offered 150,000 subscribers to its game a map of the land and a "certificate of our promise to fight the wall." To build sections of the existing border fence, the U.S. government took hundreds of private landowners in Texas to court. A wall will likely require new lawsuits....

    President Donald Trump laid out his immigration principles for Capitol Hill on Sunday — a list of hardline policies that could seriously complicate the prospects of striking a deal with Democrats over the future of hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants. “The priority for Congress ought to be to save American lives, protect American jobs and improve the well-being of American communities. These reforms accomplish that,” a senior administration official told reporters on Sunday night. “They live up to the president’s campaign commitment to have an immigration system that puts the needs of hardworking Americans first.” The broad parameters...

    GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham promised a group of younger illegal immigrants on Wednesday that Congress will amnesty 11 million illegal immigrants in the United States and increase legal immigration numbers once it approves his “Dream Act” amnesty for younger illegals. “What will happen next is I think we’ll set down and deal with the rest of the 11 million,” he told a group of roughly 100 young “DACA” illegals at a Wednesday press conference organized by Mark Zuckerberg’s FWD.us pro-amnesty lobby group. He then promised more border security and workplace security so that voters will OK greater inflow of cheap...

    TORONTO -- Former U.S. President Barack Obama said Friday that closing borders won't create future jobs because what's changing industries like manufacturing are automation and artificial intelligence. Obama told a Toronto luncheon on Friday that the transition from an agricultural to an industrial economy happened over the course of 150 years, but that the technological revolution is happening in 20 years. He said it's hard for governments to catch up to the pace of disruption. Obama said over the next 25 years, advanced economies will have to confront the fact that there is not going to be enough high-paying full-time...

    During the campaign, Donald Trump made what seemed like an outlandish promise at the time. “I will build a great, great wall on our Southern border and I’ll have Mexico pay for that wall," he said in his announcement speech. Mexico already said it is not paying for the wall, and congressional Republicans haven’t been successful in passing funding either, but the Trump administration’s plans to build the Southern border wall are already well underway. In late August, after a months-long proposal process, Trump’s administration announced four companies would begin building prototypes for the border wall this fall. Construction on...

    Contractors have begun building eight prototypes of US President Donald Trump's proposed border wall with Mexico. The building process will last about 30 days, Customs and Border Protection said. Each prototype will be up to nine metres high and nine metres long. Bidding documents say four of the prototypes are to be solid concrete and four are to be made of "other materials". Mr Trump said on Friday that the wall should be see-through, appearing to cast doubt on the concrete designs. Funding to extend the wall beyond its distance of 1,046 kilometres is in doubt. Democrats have balked at...

    Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Saturday declared that the Statue of Liberty will continue to stand as the nation's iconic symbol of American immigration, "not that damned wall." "We are going to continue to have the Statue of Liberty be our symbol, not that damned wall," the Democratic lawmaker said during the Global Citizen Festival in New York City, seemingly referring to President Trump's proposed border wall. During the event, Schumer stressed that the importance of protecting foreign aid funding after Trump proposed a 30 percent cut to the foreign assistance package in his fiscal year 2018 budget. "We welcome...

    President Trump is using targeted Facebook ads to assure supporters he will build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico, reports BuzzFeed News. "There's been a lot of noise and a lot of rumors," reads the ad from Trump's personal Facebook page. "WE WILL BUILD A WALL (NOT A FENCE) ALONG THE SOUTHERN BORDER OF THE UNITED STATES," it adds, calling the issue "non-negotiable." The ad has been targeted to specific Facebook users in recent days. Vice President Pence’s Facebook page is running a similar ad, according to BuzzFeed. Trump’s declaration comes after he tweeted last week that the...

    During US president Donald Trump’s first month in office, the Department of Homeland Security saw a 40% drop in “apprehensions and the prevention of inadmissible persons” at crossings between the border of Mexico and the US; after the Trump administration threatened to separate children from their parents at the border, the number of parents and children apprehended at crossings dropped by 93%. Up to this point, many of the people who had been trying to illegally enter the US at the southern border in recent years were not Mexicans, but refugees from other Latin American countries passing through Mexico....

    Tohono O’odham Nation Chairman Edward Manuel is determined to prevent President Trump's proposed border wall from carving a path through his tribe's lands — a move which he said would separate members from much needed resources and disrupt the community’s way of life. The nation, which is about the size of Connecticut, is a federally recognized tribe that has land and members on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border. “Walls are made to keep animals in or out, walls cannot contain people,” Manuel said. “People are too intelligent. They can always find a way to get over the wall, under...

    President Donald Trump said on Thursday he was close to a deal with Democratic congressional leaders on protections for illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children, a development that alarmed some of his conservative supporters. Trump, who met with the top Democrats in the Senate and House of Representatives, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, at the White House on Wednesday evening, said any final agreement must include significant measures to protect border security. The Republican president added that funding for his planned wall along the U.S.-Mexican border - a centerpiece of his 2016 presidential campaign - would "come...

    Given the recent history between Hungary, Germany and the European Union on matters of immigration policy and refugee resettlement, one can only imagine how well this is going to go over.Angela Merkel is up for reelection this year so she’s making a point of bolstering her open border policies and her support for the EU. That’s apparently why she felt she had to weigh in on Hungary’s recent positions on the subject. Those positions are, basically, that the EU can commit cultural suicide if they want, but Hungary won’t be having any part of it. Still, Merkel clearly wants...

    Recipients of DACA are encouraging lawmakers to reject the main demand the president has made in exchange for their legal protections. President Donald Trump’s decision Tuesday to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals immigration policy opened the door for legislative deal making. And no proposed trade has been more widely discussed than one in which Trump gets funding for his beloved border wall in exchange for permanent legal protections for the so-called DREAMers. There are just two major hitches: Democrats aren’t biting and, more significantly, neither are DACA recipients. Those recipients, along with immigration reform advocates, have been...

    DACA, the “mini-DREAM Act” enacted by executive order under President Obama, is about to be killed by President Trump. Politico reports: President Donald Trump has decided to end the Obama-era program that grants work permits to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the country as children, according to two sources familiar with his thinking. Senior White House aides huddled Sunday afternoon to discuss the rollout of a decision likely to ignite a political firestorm — and fulfill one of the president’s core campaign promises. The administration’s deliberations on the issue have been fluid and fast moving, and the president has faced...
