    382 White House signals it can live without border wall funds © Getty Images The White House indicated Wednesday that President Trump could go along with a government funding bill that does not include money to begin building his proposed wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. Senate Republicans are not planning on including the funds in a measure to keep the government funded beyond the end of April.

    When standing today at Hadrian's Wall in northern England, everything appears indistinguishably affluent and serene on both sides. It was not nearly as calm some 1,900 years ago. In A.D. 122, the exasperated Roman emperor Hadrian ordered the construction of an 80-mile, 20-foot-high wall to protect Roman civilization in Britain from the Scottish tribes to the north. We moderns often laugh at walls and fortified boundaries, dismissing them as hopelessly retrograde, ineffective or unnecessary. Yet they still seem to fulfill their mission on the Israeli border, the 38th parallel in Korea and the Saudi-Iraqi boundary, separating disparate states. On the...

    Mexican Finance Minister Luis Videgaray recently rejected Donald Trump´s proposal of building a wall between the US and Mexico. Yahoo News quoted the Minister: “Under no circumstance will Mexico pay for the wall that Mr. Trump is proposing.” “Building a wall between Mexico and the United States is a terrible idea. It is an idea based on ignorance and has no foundation in the reality of North American integration.” Folks, the wall is an idea made popular by the widespread disgust of the American people with the large numbers of shaky, shady and criminal aliens crossing our border from Mexico....

    Full title: Judicial Watch Uncovers 2004 State Department Records Confirming Arab Smuggling "Cells," Al Qaeda Leader in Mexico. For more than a decade the U.S. government has known that "Arab extremists" are entering the country through Mexico with the assistance of smuggling network "cells," according to State Department documents obtained by Judicial Watch that reveal among them was a top Al Qaeda operative wanted by the FBI. Some Mexican smuggling networks actually specialize in providing logistical support for Arab individuals attempting to enter the United States, the government documents say. The top Al Qaeda leader in Mexico was identified in...

    Good news. While the Mexican government accuses Americans who want a wall, illegal alien criminals to be deported from U.S. cities and increased security along the southern border of being scared bigots, they're cracking down on Americans and other foreigners walking in an out of their country. From AP (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...

    Can you imagine someone who calls herself an attorney wanting to pump her breasts during the middle of a legal deposition in a pending lawsuit? Couldn’t all of that wait just a little longer? After I stopped laughing–and I have to say, I haven’t laughed that hard at the women libbers in a long time–I began to cluck, cluck at the total lack of professionalism this woman exhibited. For she threw down her gender card in an attempt to gain an advantage in a male dominated bastion and Donald Trump walked out on her, as well he should have done....

    The Border is safe, secure, one of the safest cities in Texas with a low crime rate says Xochitl Mora, the erudite spokeswoman for Laredo Mayor Pete Saenz. She cites the extremely valuable symbiotic relationship which the city of 250,000 has with its neighbors in Mexico and all across Texas and the southwest. “The U.S. relies on the $280 Billion trade, 60% of which goes through Laredo,” she said as she stressed this huge amount would not be possible if Laredo were not secure. She explained that Mayor Saenz will greet Donald Trump when he lands in Laredo, “just as...

    According to data released by the U.S. Justice Department, 41.7 percent of the federal criminal cases that U.S. attorneys filed in U.S. district courts in fiscal 2014 were in the five U.S. attorneys' districts that sit along the U.S.-Mexico border. In fact, the five districts that sit along the border -- those for Southern California, Arizona, New Mexico, Western Texas and Southern Texas -- were the top five in the country for criminal cases filed in U.S. district courts. The office of the U.S. attorney for Western Texas led the nation last year in filing criminal cases in U.S. district...

    I know many people do not understand the very real battle happening in the United States. More specifically, here in the Southwest U.S. we have been involved in an extended battle with a foreign criminal element. These organized criminals, known as Mexican cartels, have been discussed plenty but mainly in a general sense. Many times, the intricate details of this battle cannot be fully disclosed, as it can compromise the safety of those involved in the fight against these criminals. However, what can be shared is some general knowledge and information to help educate those who do not understand the...

    This past weekend I did what President Obama refused to do during his recent trip to Texas—I visited the U.S-Mexico border. I knew that the border crisis was serious, but nothing could have prepared me for just how bad this situation truly is. The results of the Obama administration’s lawlessness when it comes to enforcing existing immigration laws were magnified in the Rio Grande Valley, where Congressman Steve King and I visited a number of facilities and met with local, state, and federal officials. What we saw was people processing, not border security. Americans would be shocked to learn that...

    American Thinker ^ | July 27. 2014 | Jeannie DeAngelis
    On behalf of illegal unaccompanied minors flooding our southern border, liberals are currently citing Jesus in Matthew 19:14 saying, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Using that particular verse is problematic because America is not the “kingdom of heaven,” and regardless of the age or economic status of the children, Jesus would never approve of the type of lawless chaos the left is currently promoting. Nonetheless, that has not curtailed the sermonizing of Biblical scholar/House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Recently, by quoting the Conference Bishops, a group...

    Why isn't Mexico doing more to deter unaccompanied minors from Central America from traversing Mexico to cross the U.S.-Mexico border? If this is a humanitarian crisis, then shouldn't Mexico be taking in its neighbors? Mexico's secretary of foreign affairs, Jose Antonio Meade, met with the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board Tuesday, so I had a chance to ask him. His answer was instructive: Mexico offers health services for migrants passing through the country, he said, but when Mexican officials "find an unaccompanied minor within Mexico, he doesn't want to stay in Mexico." And: "At the core of the child's interest...

    From the head of the U.S. agency in charge of the welfare of more than 50,000 Central American children who have been apprehended at the Mexican border, to the Honduran cardinal who heads the international Catholic relief agency, Caritas, the message was clear, those minors are as much refugees as the people fleeing upheaval in Syria or South Sudan. “How are these children different from refugees from Sudan” or other war-torn countries, asked Eskinder Negash, director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement, known as ORR, in the Department of Health and Human Services. “Regardless of whether they have family here,...

    Most news from our southern border means another raid on our wallets. “How many millions (billions) will this one cost us?” we wonder about “processing” (one way or the other) the latest invasion by hapless “Latino” children. You can’t help but feel for the children, but instinctively know the real beneficiaries of all the “processing” will be the corrupt, fat- cat politicians whose own policies stifle economic growth down there, hence preventing any competition to their crony capitalism. But no problemo! Because they can always rid themselves of the resulting underclass at our expense. Given recent history and current U.S....

    I’ve written about the plight of U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi for weeks now. It’s a sad story. It’s made even sadder by President Obama’s terrible trade for what appears to be a deserter and traitor, while he allows a true hero to languish behind bars in Mexico. Tahmoorsessi is being falsely imprisoned by our “friend” and neighbor Mexico. He’s been mistreated, beaten and some would say tortured. I’ve already suggested what should be done to free this Marine hero - warn the President of Mexico that every option is on the table until we get our Marine hero back....

    UPDATE: The gesture didn’t elicit a positive reaction from the Ohio Republican. Updated 8:20 a.m. May 28 | President Barack Obama won’t act to reduce deportations on his own until the end of the summer — giving Speaker John A. Boehner one more chance to vote on an immigration overhaul. Two administration officials confirmed that the president has directed Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson to hold off on releasing the results of his review of immigration policy in the meantime. The hope in the White House is that once Republican primary season largely wraps up on June 10, Boehner will...

    (Reuters) - The Republican-run House of Representatives voted to cut spending on food stamps for the poor by $40 billion on Thursday, defying a veto threat from the White House in the name of fiscal reform. Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the driving force behind the legislation, said "it's wrong for working, middle-class people to pay" for abuse of the program, whose costs have skyrocketed in recent years. Democrats pointed to nonpartisan estimates that the bill would end benefits to 4 million needy people in 2014.

Maria Santos Gorrostieta, who had already survived two assassination attempts, was driving the child to school at around 8.30am when she was ambushed by a car in the city of Morelia. The 36-year-old was hauled from her vehicle and physically assaulted as horrified witnesses watched, according to newspaper El Universal. They described how she begged for her child to be left alone and then appeared to get into her abductors’ car willingly. The little girl...
