    PELOSI: No, I'm -- I'm -- I'm OK with what our -- our -- our chairwoman, Lucille Roybal-Allard -- she is a person who has fought on these issues her -- her entire stay in Congress, which has been for a couple of decades. We're blessed that she's in the position that she is in. She knows that we -- most of us, speaking for myself, consider the wall immoral, ineffective and expensive... So even if they did, it's immoral still., and then they're not going to pay for it.

    Illegal immigration ticked up in November, but the number of those people traveling as families shattered records, Homeland Security reported Thursday, saying it’s proof that migrants have figured out how to game the flawed U.S. immigration system. More than 25,000 people who came as part of families were snared by Border Patrol agents sneaking across the U.S.-Mexico line, and nearly 5,000 more were encountered at official border crossings where they demanded entry. Nearly 5,300 more children traveling without parents were also caught jumping the border, the government said. The 25,000 family “units,” as they’re called, are by far a record,...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday flatly rejected the idea of approving funding for President Trump’s border wall in exchange for protections for illegal immigrant “Dreamers.” “They’re two different subjects,” the California Democrat said. Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are searching for a solution to a budget impasse, with Mr. Trump’s demand for $5 billion in border wall money the major hurdle right now. The president has suggested he would force a partial government shutdown unless he gets the money he’s asking for. GOP leaders on Capitol Hill are interested in delivering, but Democrats, who maintain veto powers thanks to...

    U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz with three other senators introduced a bill Wednesday that is aimed at fully funding a wall along the US-Mexico border... The WALL Act would fully fund the border wall by closing existing loopholes that provide illegal immigrants with federal benefits and tax credits, without affecting the benefits and tax credits used by Americans.

    The Washington State University chapter of the College Republicans wants to build another mockup of a border wall on the Pullman campus to “own the libs mercilessly” and show support for President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration proposal. The club’s president, Amir Rezamand, is soliciting $2,500 on to pay for tools, building materials and “any miscellaneous costs the university tries to throw at us.” The stunt would be a sequel to a demonstration the club held in October 2016, shortly before Trump was elected. Conservative student activists erected an 8-foot plywood wall, featuring the word “TRUMP” in gold spray paint,...

    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...

    Best selling author and conservative pundit Ann Coulter -- who early in 2016 predicted Donald Trump's presidential win -- said that because of changing demographics and the propensity of many young immigrants to vote for liberals, Donald Trump "will be the last Republican president." In a Nov. 28 interview with Editor in-Chief Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Daily, Coulter said, “Every day, more and more immigrants turn 18 and start voting, canceling out all of your votes. It’s about five more years. Trump will be the last Republican president." "You think, ‘Oh well, we may get another Supreme Court nomination,...

    n an interview with POLITICO, the president drew a red line in his funding fight with Democrats and said he doesn’t 'do anything … just for political gain.' For the past two years, congressional Republicans have persuaded President Donald Trump to delay the fight to fund his border wall, convincing him he would pay a steep political price for such a high-stakes legislative brawl. Trump is done waiting. Nine days ahead of a deadline that could trigger a partial government shutdown, with no solution in sight, the president told POLITICO in an Oval Office interview on Tuesday that he is...

    The Democrats’ Senate leader, Chuck Schumer, suggested to reporters Tuesday that he could endorse spending more than $1.6 billion in 2019 for President Donald Trump’s border wall. “We are for strong border security,” Schumer said, adding, “The $1.6 billion for border security negotiated by Democrats and Republicans is our position. We believe that is the right way to go … Stick to the $1.6 billion … We’re not negotiating in the press. This is our position.” But Schumer did not suggest what price he may demand in exchange for agreeing to President Donald Trump’s demand that $5 billion in border...

    President Trump offered Mexico some advice on deporting migrants massed in Tijuana and threatening to storm the U.S., telling the neighboring nation in a tweet to send them “back to their countries” by plane or by bus – or face a permanent closure of the border. Trump’s tweet followed a vow from Mexico to deport migrants who tried to illegally enter the U.S. The Trump administration has said asylum claims from members of a series of caravans originating in Central America must be processed outside the U.S., and that all those entering illegally will be denied. A federal judge has...

    Sen. Brian Schatz, D-Hawaii, tweeted Sunday that the use of tear gas against Central American migrants who attempted to enter the U.S. illegally may have been a violation of international agreements governing the use of chemical weapons -- before he backtracked. The Associated Press reported that U.S. agents shot several rounds of the gas after migrants tried to penetrate several points along the border at the San Ysidro border crossing between Tijuana, Mexico, and California. Migrants sought to squeeze through gaps in wire, climb over fences and peel back metal sheeting to enter. In response to the reports, Schatz initially...

    Is this another case of fake news or is the incoming left-wing populist government simply trying to play hardball with Señor Trump? Hours after the Washington Post reported that a supposed deal had been met to keep the Central American migrant caravan in Mexico as the United States sorts through asylum applications, Mexico's incoming foreign minister denied that any agreement had been reached and that conversations are still continuing. According to the BBC, "Marcelo Ebrard denied reaching an agreement which would see asylum seekers waiting in Mexico while their claims were processed in US courts." Likewise, the man who will serve in president-elect...

    Roughly 80 LGBT caravan riders traveling from Central America to the United States broke away from the main group and headed towards Tijuana separately. When they got to Tijuana, officiants from the Unitarian Universalist delegation on Saturday threw a mass wedding where at least seven LGBT couples wed, The Hill reported. Baja California, where Tijuana is located, is one of a handful of states that recognizes same-sex marriages in Mexico. “This is really a dream come true, because you don’t see this in our home countries and this is something that we’ve always wanted to do, and today we had the opportunity...

    LEADERSHIP GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN President Trump has made it clear that a government shutdown could very well happen in early December if Congress doesn’t fund his border wall. Now that threat is creating one-upmanship between Democrats and Republicans, neither of whom want to give in, nor be the party responsible for thrusting the government into a partial shutdown. Trump told reporters that it would be “a very good time to do a shutdown,” highlighting border security needs ... With government funding due to run out on Dec. 7, Congress needs to act fast to avoid a shutdown, but neither side appears...

    (National Sentinel) Build It: In politics, there are very few lay-ups when it comes to finding issues most Americans agree on, but POTUS Donald Trump hit upon one during his 2016 campaign: Building a “big, beautiful wall” along the U.S. border with Mexico to curb illegal immigration and drug trafficking. And according to midterm exit polling, it’s still a political lay-up. Exit polling conducted by Zogby Analytics for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) found that the vast majority of Republican voters — more than 80 percent — favor the construction of a border wall along the southern border....

    The feud over who will be the next speaker of the House is heating up, as allies of the longtime Democratic leader, Nancy Pelosi, take on a rowdy band of rebels pushing for regime change. Pro-Pelosi forces launched a snarky Twitter assault against a handful of the men leading the rebellion. As the progressive pundit Joan Walsh tweeted, “So #fivewhiteguys are following the tactics of the right wing white guy Freedom Caucus to block a woman speaker after an election in which women saved the Democrats. Got it.”
  • Cutting razor wire, caravan migrants make a new case for a border wall

    After a big public relations buildup about razor wire being installed at the border to keep illegal migrants out, caravan migrants are at it again, this time cutting the newly installed razor wire: Customs and Border Patrol has a video of the crime in San Diego. Here's video of another one at the the border in Arizona. Both happened on the exact same day, Nov. 14. Obviously, it's coordinated, and by a very canny organized group (cartels?) that wants to send a message to the U.S. that its border efforts are useless. Tactically, it's striking first and striking hard, right...

The stocking stuffers from Keep and Bear, a conservative gift retailer, come with 101 pieces including a miniature President Donald Trump and a hard hat emblazoned with his 'Make America Great Again' mantra. When assembled, the Lego knock-off wall bears one of Trump's beloved phrases: 'Build the Wall'. The toy's description on Keep and Bear's website includes an extensive endorsement of the border wall that decries the migrant caravan making its way to the US, employing rhetoric...
