    In these cases, the Ninth Circuit had held that a provision requiring the mandatory detention of non-citizens who have committed certain dangerous crimes applies only if a non-citizen is arrested by immigration officials as soon as he is released from jail. The Supreme Court rejects this interpretation. The Ninth Circuit is reversed and the case is remanded.
  • Senate Republicans Stand With Democrats, Betray American People

    03/14/2019 11:38:33 AM PDT · by NoLibZone · 34 replies ^ | 3-14-19 | Todd Starnes
    A growing number of Senate Republicans have announced they will stand with the Democrats in opposition to President Trump’s national emergency declaration. The latest to betray the American people is Sen. Mitt Romney. “This is not a vote against border security. In fact, I agree that a physical barrier is urgently needed to help ease the humanitarian crisis at the southern border, and the administration already has $4.5 billion available within existing authority to fund a barrier – even without an emergency declaration,” he said. The senator is foolish. Today’s vote is indeed a vote against border security. Here’s the...
  • The Great Wall of Jordan (Obama is spending $500 Million to build an electronic wall in Jordan.)

    Vice News ^ | February 24, 2016 | William M. Arkin
    The Obama administration is spending close to a half a billion dollars to build a sophisticated electronic fence along Jordan's northern and eastern borders, a wall which US strategic planners hope will stem the flow of refugees and also wall off the increasingly important American base from the disintegration of Syria and Iraq. The wall, which began as a $20 million project in 2008 to erect a set of surveillance towers along a 30-mile (50 km) stretch of the border with Syria, has since expanded into a program costing half a billion dollars, according to defense officials who spoke to...
  • Trump tells Republicans to ‘stay united’ in face of push to nix border emergency declaration

    President Trump on Wednesday urged fellow Republicans to “stay united” in the face of a Democrat-led effort to nix his declaration of a national emergency at the border. “Senate Republicans are not voting on constitutionality or precedent, they are voting on desperately needed Border Security & the Wall,” he tweeted. "Our Country is being invaded with Drugs, Human Traffickers, & Criminals of all shapes and sizes. That’s what this vote is all about. STAY UNITED!" The House voted last week to block Trump’s emergency declaration, which could help free up billions of dollars to fund a wall on the southern...

    Issues: 1. Is there a Case or Controversy? 2. Is the matter a political issue? CASE OR CONTROVERSY: The Constitution limits the jurisdiction of the Federal Courts to nine classes of “cases or controversies”. Over the years the Supreme Court has exercised its authority by adding further restrictions. Before accepting a case, the court must first determine if the parties have standing. Then it must decide if the timing is right, i.e. “ripe for adjudication”, which is to say that someone has suffered an injury, or withholding a legal determination is likely to result in substantial hardship on the plaintiff....

    There must be numerous Democratic officials who are aware that Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have crossed the line into the absurd regarding their anti-border wall fiasco but remain silent. Such cannot be said about the growing number of newly elected and "converted" Democrat radicals who echo extreme views without the slightest understanding of the facts. Reuters on February 6 published a piece titled "U.S. Border Officials Don't Share Trump's Zeal for Border Wall." The article reported on a classified briefing given by Customs and Border Protection agents to lawmakers, including Democratic senator Dick Durbin, who emerged from that briefing...

    As a second partial government shutdown looms in Washington over border discussions, Gov. Gavin Newsom on Monday will order the removal of roughly 360 National Guard members from California’s southern boundary with Mexico, repudiating President Trump’s characterization of a recent influx of Central American refugees and migrants as a national security crisis. The announcement comes just one day before the governor delivers his first State of the State address Tuesday, setting the stage for Newsom to counter Trump’s State of the Union address from last week.

    ANTELOPE WELLS — U.S. Border Patrol agents have arrested 290 Central Americans who entered the country illegally near a port of entry in a remote area of southwestern New Mexico. Customs and Border Protection said the migrants arrested early Friday near Antelope Wells, 122 miles west of El Paso, were from Guatemala, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Honduras, and they included a boy who appeared to be ill and who was taken to a hospital for treatment. CBP said over 27 groups of more than 100 people have been apprehended in the area in the fiscal year that started Oct. 1.

    Five million Latin Americans plan to migrate to the United States in the next 12 months, and an estimated 42 million more say they want to enter the country. Those statistics were in a report from Jim Clifton, the chairman and CEO at Gallup: Forty-two million seekers of citizenship or asylum are watching to determine exactly when and how is the best time to make the move. This suggests that open borders could potentially attract 42 million Latin Americans. A full 5 million who are planning to move in the next 12 months say they are moving to the U.S....

On Wednesday, about 71 Democrats and one Republican — Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) — voted against House Resolution 1071, which admonishes localities for giving illegal aliens and noncitizens voting rights. Another 69 House Democrats voted “present” on the resolution, while 49 Democrats joined 230 House Republicans to support the measure.

    Celebrities like Jimmy Kimmel, Chelsea Handler, Jim Carrey, Barbara Streisand, Rob Reiner and Mark Hamill have used their massive celebrity platforms to advocate harshly against Trump’s immigration policies. So how do these rich progressive celebrities choose to protect the things they love? We investigated. In our last episode of “Walls Across America,” we traveled to George Soros’ mansion in the Hamptons to investigate the massive wall around his home.

    The Hill ^ | 01/29/19 | Buck Sexton
    The federal government has reopened, but the talking points pushed by the Democrats about the southern border remain the same. They falsely say there is “no crisis.” They claim that a barrier or wall would do nothing to curb illegal immigration or drug smuggling, which is demonstrably untrue. The “humanitarian challenge” that members of Congress refer to is actually an inundation of migrants at the border that hurts the overall mission of law enforcement officials and threatens to crash the system. What is new here is the unprecedented and growing surge of migrant family arrivals at our border with Mexico...

    America is full of visible and invisible walls. In the first half of the last century, our politics had been dedicated to tearing down the walls between classes, races and genders. And then in the second half of the century, radicals terrified of what that meant for their plans, began building them up again while adding new divisions until every city, workplace and even family is divided by many invisible walls. Walls represent divisions. Whether you support or oppose a particular wall depends on whether you believe a division is legally, morally or philosophically legitimate. The walls that the radicals...

    On Friday January 25, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced that 95,000 individuals registered to vote in the Lone Star State have been identified as "Non-US Citizens," meaning they are illegally registered to vote. Further evidence brought forth by Texas Secretary of State David Whitely confirms that 58,000 of these individuals have broken the law and voted in "one or more" recent elections. “Every single instance of illegal voting threatens democracy in our state and deprives individual Texans of their voice," AG Paxton said in a statement. "My Election Fraud Unit stands ready to investigate and prosecute crimes against the...

    The most important people in American politics is the 60% in the middle--those unimaginably ignorant "people" who vote for Obama on Monday, Trump on Tuesday, Hillary on Wednesday, Reagan on Thursday, etc., etc. I think it is just possible that after three weeks, those ignorant pigs, yes, even them, they might wake up and say, "Hey, DJT's been pretty flexible here. The dems are unreasonable." THAT is what we might gain with a 3-week pause in the shutdown. Hoping and praying.
  • Schumer blocks bill to pay Coast Guard

    Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) blocked a request to pay the Coast Guard on Thursday after Republicans refused to also open the rest of the federal government. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) tried to take up legislation to pay the Coast Guard, which is part of the Department of Homeland Security. Schumer blocked the request after first asking if Kennedy would modify his request to instead reopen the quarter of the government currently closed. "President Trump is responsible not only for thousands of Coast Guard personnel not getting paid but hundreds of thousands of other federal employees also not getting...
