    TEL AVIV Ė As the debate over Donald Trumpís proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border continues to dominate the presidential race, Israel is reportedly planning to move ahead with a massive above and underground concrete barrier along the entire border with the Gaza Strip. The barrier was revealed on Thursday in a story splashed across the cover of Yedioth Aharonot, Israelís largest daily newspaper. The story was published with the approval of the countryís defense ministry. Yediothís affiliated website, Ynetnews, has the details:

    WASHINGTON Ė A plan to increase the overall height of the fence surrounding the White House by approximately 6 feet, about doubling its current height, won preliminary approval from a Washington arts commission Thursday. The move follows high-profile security breaches at the executive mansion over the past two years. The U.S. Commission of Fine Arts gave its concept approval Thursday to the new design, which also includes thicker and stronger metal fence pickets.

There's a spectrum of answers to this question on the right, of course: 1. Amnesty is citizenship without preconditions. That's the strictest definition, and naturally the one preferred by Beltway Republicans like Marco Rubio in his Gang of Eight days. (Marco Rubio circa 2010 had a different view.) As long as you're forcing illegals to jump through some sort of hoop, be it learning English, paying back taxes, going to the back of the line,...

    Egypt's pumping of salt water from the nearby Mediterranean into the tunnels is not only creating a mess as it rises to the surface. Palestinian officials say it is also contaminating water supplies as well as threatening to wreck farmland and spread disease. Local residents say that at the peak of the tunnel business, after Hamas Islamists seized the Gaza Strip in 2007 and Israel tightened a closure of its crossings into the enclave, nearly 2,500 underground passages snaked under the border with Egypt. The direction of traffic was mainly into Gaza. Commercial goods - and weapons smuggled in separate...

Both countries have become key transit points for tens of thousands of refugees and migrants seeking to reach northern Europe ahead of the winter, and before more potential EU border closures.

One of his proposals, laughed at by the elites but popular with ordinary Republican voters, was to build a fence along the southern border of the United States. The guy whose main reputation is in real estate and who builds hotels and other buildings, said he was capable of erecting a fence. In late August, Wisconsin governor Scott Walker, who...

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.

    To make a point about the Obama administrationís stance on a fence across the southern border, one Republican lawmaker jokingly suggested in a congressional hearing Wednesday that the president should remove the fence protecting the White House. Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert made the comments during a House Judiciary Hearing Wednesday with Joseph Clancy, the acting director of the U.S. Secret Service. As lawmakers questioned the acting director about the recent fence jumpers at the White House, Gohmert connected the problem to border issues. Gohmert told Clancy that if Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano thinks building a fence on the border...

    A man appearing in court on charges that he scaled a White House fence was found incompetent to stand trial Monday and screamed for help as marshals forcibly removed him from the courtroom. Dominic Adesanya, 23, of Bel Air, Maryland, began screaming after he was ordered to undergo psychiatric evaluation and treatment for the next 45 days. Adesanya has been charged with two federal offenses: unlawfully entering the restricted grounds of the White House and harming two law enforcement dogs that were released to apprehend him. Don't "do this to me," Adesanya yelled at the end of a five-minute court...

    Throughout her political career, including during her current race against former GOP Sen. Scott Brown, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D., N.H.) has touted her experience as a small business owner. Shaheenís small business ďexperienceĒ was co-running a store that once sold thousands of dollars-worth of stolen jewelry. ďAs the former owner and manager of a small retail business, Senator Shaheen knows what itís like to worry about meeting payroll and inventory costs to keep a business going,Ē the Issues section of her Senate website declares. Her Senate biography also describes her as a ďformer small business owner.Ē This week, the Shaheen...

    by Brian Hayes | Top Right News Last month, we†reported on an incursion by Mexican troops in Arizona, who held U.S. agents at gunpoint before being allowed to retreat back into Mexico. Many experts believe that elements of the Mexican army are openly assisting the drug cartels along their smuggling routes into the U.S. Now comes a new shocking report of dozens of invasions across the border by Mexican troops, who have shot Americans and even landed helicopters on ranchers' land and held them at gunpoint.

    The Democrats' best shot at destroying the GOP in the short/medium-term would clearly lay in mass amnesties of illegal immigrants... forget smokescreen BS about green cards and phony half-measures that pretend to do something short of what the Dems really want: once they're here legally, most 3rd-world immigrants will be made citizens and voting (Democrat) soon enough, and anyone who purports otherwise is being intellectually dishonest... Luckily for left, Republican 'leadership' in the House and Senate are more than willing to help them do that, as the US Chamber of Commerce just loves them a bottomless labor market-- and John Boehner's too stupid to see any farther...

    A massive weekend raid netted several hundred illegal immigrants who were either car wash workers or customers in Phoenix, according to immigrant-rights groups who say the move highlights the ongoing tensions within President Obamaís deportation policy. Even as Capitol Hill lawmakers debate whether to move on an immigration bill this year, many immigrant-rights advocates are lobbying Mr. Obama to halt all deportations, and they have picked several cases to make a stand. Just last week, activists in Ohio demanded a halt to the deportation of a man whose son suffers from cerebral palsy. The Obama administration complied, granting him a...

    Republicans (and red state Democrats) used to tell voters amazing things about their opposition to amnesty. Then they got elected and supported legislation that actually weakens border security and puts people on a path not just to legalization, but to citizenship, before ever securing our borders. 1. Rubio: ďI would vote against anything that grants amnesty because I think it destroys your ability to enforce the existing law and I think itís unfair to the people who are standing in line and waiting to come in legally. I would vote against anything that has amnesty in it.Ē 2. Corker: ďWe...
