  • Border Dilemmas Are the Same for Trump or Obama

    ... Steve Bullock, governor of Montana and a former Democratic presidential candidate, spoke truthfully to a debate audience: “We’ve got 100,000 people showing up at the border right now. If we decriminalize entry, if we give health care to everyone, we’ll have multiples of that.” Yes, and the cost is measured partly in bodies. An average of 372 dead migrants a year were found along the southern border during Mr. Obama’s two terms. In Mr. Trump’s first two years, the average was 290. Don’t blame either man. Both had the same policy. It’s the same as Bill Clinton’s and George...
  • Is America Too Crowded?

    Do you like crowds? When you take the kids to Disney World or Six Flags in the middle of summer, do you relish the idea of not being able to lift your arms without touching another person? Do you enjoy waiting two hours just to ride a two-minute ride? When you pull into the DMV, the doctor’s office, or your favorite restaurant, does your heart quietly skip a beat when there’s a line out the door? Does being stuck for hours in rush hour traffic in Los Angeles or any other major American city excite you? When you take your...

    Denmark: Shootings, Car Torchings, Gang Violence by Judith Bergman November 19, 2019 at 4:00 am "These numbers underline, first of all, that we are talking about a problem that has to do with ethnicity. The argument that this has nothing to do with foreigners has to be taken off the table." — Trine Bramsen, legal affairs spokesperson for the Social Democrats, in Berlingske Tidende, August 24, 2017. "In addition to a common fondness for crime, the culture of immigrant gangs is a cocktail of religion, clan affiliation, honor, shame and brotherhood...

    I was only marginally excited about this candidacy when it involved me losing my health insurance and eventually my doctor and the country being put on the hook for $20 trillion in new spending at a moment when it’s already running trillion-dollar deficits. But now that’s she’s sweetened the pot by threatening to abuse the president’s deportation power in the name of amnestizing America’s giant illegal population, I’m all-in.

    The second-largest city in Maine, home to thousands of African newcomers, has elected a Somali American to its city council. Safiya Khalid, 23, soundly defeated a fellow Democrat on Tuesday for a seat on the Lewiston City Council in a campaign that was marred in the final days by racially charged attacks and threats that were fueled by social media.

    Thousands of migrants returned to Mexico under the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy have given up their asylum claims, with many of them returning home, according to statistics included in a new assessment of the policy released this week by the Department of Homeland Security. The policy, known formally as the Migrant Protection Protocols, sends migrants seeking asylum at the southern border back to Mexico for the duration of immigration proceedings. It is a cornerstone of the administration’s efforts to end “catch and release,” by which migrants are released into the U.S. while their cases are heard. Hearings have...

    The U.S. detained more unaccompanied minors trying to cross the nation's southwestern border in the past year than ever recorded, according to newly released figures from the Trump administration. By the end of the 2019 fiscal year in September, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) apprehended 76,020 minors at the nation's southwestern border, an increase of 52 percent from the previous fiscal year. Most of the migrant children came from Central America – Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador – while more than 10,400 came from Mexico. The figures released by the Department of Homeland Security show a whopping 342 percent...

    Mexico has seen an astounding 250% increase in Africans trying to enter the United States through the southern border, according to the latest figures released by the Mexican government’s immigration agency, known as Unidad de Política Migratoria . The stats include the first eight months of 2019 and reveal that, during the same period last year, 1,507 Africans were apprehended in the country compared to 5,286 this year. During the same period 4,783 migrants from India and Bangladesh were also detained in Mexico, according to the data made public this month. The information is alarming considering Africa and Bangladesh are...

    U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) has identified 238 fraudulent cases of individuals claiming to be related in order to secure entry into the United States. Illegal aliens from Central and South America have been exploiting children to take advantage of loopholes in U.S. immigration policy. In April, the Family Fraud Initiative was launched by ICE, in conjunction with Homeland Security Investigations and U.S. Border Patrol, to investigate individuals posing as family members when applying for asylum in the United States. Under the policy known as "catch and release," families with minor children arriving to the United States are released...

    Only a Democrat could run for president of the United States with the last name of “Castro.” Because only Democrats have ‘Castro-like’ Communist tendencies. 2020 Garbage Party candidate Rep. Joaquin Castro, whose twin brother Julian was San Antonio’s mayor and Barack Obama’s HUD secretary for a couple of years, is so afflicted by Trump Derangement Syndrome that he has conflated an Obama “human rights violation” with the Trump administration.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) are demanding swift action to protect transgender migrants attempting to enter the United States. In an eight-page letter to Trump administration officials, the senators implore the administration to reverse immigration policies they consider harmful to transgender migrants and other vulnerable populations. The policies they want reversed? All of them! The populations they consider vulnerable? All of them! "We write to express alarm over reports detailing the abuse and neglect of trans gender migrants and asylum seekers at the border and in U.S. custody," the letter states. "We ask you to immediately...

    Newly released documents claim that the Danish government was prepared to build a wall on its southern border with Germany during the height of the 2015 migrant crisis. The documents claim that the government was fully prepared to build a 33-kilometre long wall across the border and had already spent nearly 22 million Danish Krone (£2.5m/$3.2m) on materials to build the structure, Danish newspaper Berlingske reports. Minister of Justice Nick Hekkerup revealed the plan to the Danish parliament showing that the Ministry of Defense’s Material and Purchasing Board had purchased 37,500 barbed spirals, 37,000 barbed wire posts, 35,000 barbed wire...

    A caravan of roughly 2,000 migrants bound for the United States early Saturday was halted by Mexican authorities only a few hours into their journey, according to officials. The caravan, which consisted of migrants from Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America, left before dawn from Tapachula, a town in southern Mexico near the Guatemalan border, Reuters reported. Many of the migrants who departed from Tapachula early in the morning had been held up there for weeks or months, awaiting residency or transit papers from Mexican authorities. About 24 miles into their journey, federal police and national guardsmen blocked their path....

    by Brian Hayes Citizens in the central European state of Slovenia -- the home country of First Lady Melania Trump -- have formed a civil defense force to put a stop to illegal Muslim migrants entering their country from Croatia. And unlike in the U.S., where the media and politicians attack vigilante groups that defend the border as racist and "dangerous," the government is actively supporting these volunteers, and the media is heralding them as patriotic. The Balkan route for Islamic migrants heading north from Turkey and Greece into Germany is well-known. However, thanks to Hungary’s national populist Prime...

    A tense hearing over border detention practices erupted into a shouting match between former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Thomas Homan and Rep. Pramila Jayapal, D-Wash., as Homan grew frustrated in his attempts to defend his former agency. Jayapal, the vice chairwoman of the House Judiciary Immigration and Citizenship Subcommittee, repeatedly cut off Homan for exceeding his allotted time. It started when the former ICE director responded to a previous statement Jayapal made about the Trump administration's use of funding for additional detention beds. "I'd like to remind you, under the Obama administration we did that most of the...

    Among the multitude of migrants waiting in Mexico to get asylum in the United States are thousands of Africans boldly demanding passage into the country. They are far more coordinated than their Central American caravan counterparts and have formed an official organization to spread their message and advocate on their behalf. The group accuses Mexican authorities of discrimination and racism and is ordering Mexico to grant visas that allow them to continue their trek north to seek “protection” in America. For about three months the Africans have been holed up in Tapachula, in the southeast Mexican state of Chiapas bordering...
