    The road rage suspect who killed a sheriff’s deputy, wounded a police officer and died in a central Washington state shootout this week was living in the United States illegally, the federal government said Thursday. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Juan Manuel Flores Del Toro, 29, was a citizen of Mexico who entered the United States in 2014 at Laredo, Texas, on a temporary agricultural worker visa. The agency had no record that Flores Del Toro left the U.S. or extended his visa after it expired.

    Today the Washington Post reports that Democrats are struggling with a political dilemma over immigration. On the one hand, they are eager to deny the Trump administration’s claims that there is a crisis at the border. On the other hand, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that there is, in fact, a crisis at the border. For Democrats eager to draw a sharp contrast with Trump ahead of the 2020 presidential election cycle, the growing number of migrants being apprehended threatens to puncture a reliable talking point and force them into a fraught choice: sound heightened alarms and risk affirming Trump’s...

    SAN DIEGO (AP) — Scheduling glitches led an immigration judge to deny the Trump administration's request to order four Central American migrants deported because they failed to show for initial hearings Wednesday in the U.S. while being forced to wait in Mexico... ...Judge Scott Simpson told administration lawyers to file a brief by April 10 that explains how it can assure migrants are properly notified of appointments. The judge postponed initial appearances for the four no-shows to April 22, which raised more questions about how they would learn about the new date.' Government documents had no street address for the...

    The U.S. Department of Defense is proposing to pay for President Donald Trump’s much-debated border wall by shifting funds away from projects that include $1.2 billion for schools, childcare centers and other facilities for military children, according to a list it has provided to lawmakers. The Pentagon gave Congress a list on Monday that included $12.8 billion of construction projects for which it said funds could be redirected. Around 10 percent of the list relates to educational establishments and includes school buildings for the children of service members in places like Germany, Japan, Kentucky and Puerto Rico. The move comes...

    A supremely rare, multimillion-dollar Koenigsegg CCXR Special Edition originally built for the Qatari royal family was wrecked in Mexico City over the weekend, according to witness accounts and photos posted on social media. Pictures show the 249-mph hypercar at a dead stop on the side of the Paseo de la Reforma, a major avenue that crosses the middle of Mexico's capital, immobilized by heavy front-end damage. Jagged, gaping holes can be seen in the carbon fiber bodywork. One of the rear wheels sits tilted at a grotesque angle. Curious onlookers gather round and stare at the car like a crashed...

    Masked gunmen barged onto a bus in northern Mexico, carrying a list of names. They left without firing a single shot, taking at least 19 passengers with them as they sped away from the scene. And so far, they seem to have vanished without a trace. Gunmen intercepted the bus March 7 along the highway that connects San Fernando, a town in the northern Mexican state of Tamaulipas, with the city of Reynosa, which sits across the US border from McAllen, Texas. Officials at first tried to downplay the possibility the migrants were kidnapped... Rafael Alonso Hernandez Lopez, who directs...

    Last year there were multiple caravans made up of thousands of Central American migrants which made their way to the border. Some of the migrants caught rides on trucks or buses part of the way, but a lot of them also walked a significant portion of the journey, making it a long and difficult trip. Today the Washington Post reports smugglers are perfecting a new approach to bring people to the southern border, one which makes the journey a lot more comfortable and treats smuggling almost as a form of tourism. Criminal organizations in Mexico have mounted a lucrative...

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said on Thursday that he will oppose President Trump's emergency declaration to build the U.S.-Mexico border wall. "I will vote today for the resolution of disapproval. This is a vote for the Constitution and for the balance of powers that is at its core," Romney said in a statement. Romney is the sixth Republican senator to say he will vote for the resolution of disapproval, which is getting a vote in the Senate later Thursday.

In a survey conducted between December 11-14, 52 percent of Hispanic Americans view the Republican Party favorably, while 37 percent have an unfavorable view of the Party of Lincoln.

The poll suggests that large numbers of Americans, of all demographic groups, are moving toward the right, as the GOP holds a...
  • The BIG LIST Of Ideas That Is Trump’s Reelection Path

    03/11/2019 2:48:16 PM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 15 replies
    If President Trump hibernated for the next 20 months he’d likely win reelection in a landslide. Of course it is not in his nature to do anything remotely like that, but that is how radical the Democratic Party has become in really just the past year. Yes, it has been trending this direction for a long time. But Bill Clinton was nominated and elected in 1992 based on his promise to take the Democratic Party back to the center. Since that time, however, it has moved much further to the left. In the past year, however, it has jumped to...

    ...In 2010, Lt. Col. (retired) Oliver North visited the ranch where Ashurst lives. He was working on documentaries called “War Stories.” He was accompanied by Chuck Holton, a freelance war correspondent and former U.S. Army Ranger who has worked with North on his films and books. When the caravans of illegal immigrants began forming last year in southern Mexico, Holton was sent there to report on them. Ashurst shared some of the information he received from Holton. The migrants are not being paid to join the caravans, but they are being supported and encouraged to join by opposition political elements...

    Once, the cannabis industry was poised to become a multibillion-dollar industry in California. Now, it could be heading for what its advocates call an “extinction event.” An estimated 10,000 marijuana growers could lose their licenses in the coming months if California lawmakers fail to pass a bill designed to grant them an extension, according to Sen. Mike McGuire, D-Healdsburg, who has sponsored Senate Bill 67.

    On this past Friday, the Democrats finally found a way to demonstrate their all out contempt for the sacred process of American elections. In doing so they closed a circle on a public strategy. In doing so they telegraphed their future intent. In doing so Americans face a crossroads. It was a simple amendment that Republicans wished to add to the Democrats first major attempt at legislation. H.R. 1 attempts to bring about voting reforms that Democrats feel are important. Claiming prejudice, mistreatment, and a need to “open up” elections to a broader swath of voters, Democrats passed a measure...

    Senate Democrats are refusing to embrace House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s rhetoric denouncing border walls as an “immorality,” but they are being careful to avoid undercutting her new role as the party’s leader in the shutdown standoff. Mrs. Pelosi has moved unsteadily since seizing the speaker’s gavel amid the partial government shutdown, including the “immorality” comment and her shifting explanations for why she told President Trump to postpone the State of the Union address. Still, she garners strong support from Democrats on both side of the Capitol for remaining steadfast in shutdown fight and refusing Mr. Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion...
