    The caravan of Honduran migrants has turned around Friday — a day after reaching the Mexico-Guatemala border, according to a report. Some 4,000 migrants fled their lives of poverty and violence in the Central American country with the hope of making it to the United States — despite repeated warnings from President Trump that he would deploy the US military to stop them. The caravan arrived at the border in southern Mexico on Thursday but turned around Friday, the Associated Press reported.

    A Border Patrol agent who serves in the nation’s busiest human smuggling sector says the unsecured border is not safe. During a recent interview with Breitbart Border/Cartel Chronicles Editor-in-Chief Brandon Darby, Rio Grande Valley Sector Border Patrol Agent Chris Cabrera, in his capacity as vice-president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3373, responded to a question about safety along the unsecured border areas in South Texas. “My response [to people who say the area is safe] is grab a tent and set up shop for a couple of days — see how safe you are,” Agent Cabrera said.
  • GOP Rep. Introduces Bill That Would Fine Mexico to Pay for the Wall

    A border state Republican congressman is introducing a bill that would effectively use foreign funds to help pay for President Trump's planned wall on the Mexican border. Rep. Andy Biggs of Arizona authored House Resolution 6657, which would establish a separate U.S. Treasury account to "hold deposits to be used to secure the southern border of the United States." Republican Reps. Scott Des Jarlais of Tennessee, Ralph Norman of South Carolina, Matt Gaetz of Florida and Paul Gosar of Arizona have signed on as co-sponsors. Biggs said in a statement obtained by The Washington Examiner that "even with a Republican-controlled...

    RUSH: So, look at this headline from the Daily Beast. It’s a left-wing publication. Headline: “Trump: Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh Want Government Shutdown Before Midterms … During yet another long, rambling rally in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania that was ostensibly meant to bolster Republican Lou Barletta’s attempt to unseat two-term Democratic Senator Bob Casey, President Donald Trump again brought up the idea of shutting down the government over the issue of ‘border security.’ And he made it clear which advisers he was listening to as he publicly flirts with that idea.” THE PRESIDENT: We need more Republicans, but there are friends of...

    It's amazing how the prospect of being hung concentrates the mind wonderfully. Congress, facing a serious threat from Donald Trump to shut down the government if he doesn't get funding for border security, including his wall, is working to mitigate that threat by passing spending bills in advance of the September 30 deadline. Washington Times: Congress is taking big strides to defuse President Trump’s shutdown threat, working to pass as many spending bills as possible before next month’s deadline so most of the government will remain open no matter what Mr. Trumpdemands on border security. On Wednesday, the Senate cleared a $154 billion package...

    Hotair ^ | 07/31/2018 | Jazz Shaw
    One major part of the President’s recent shutdown showdown announcement was a dispute over funding to continue construction of the border wall. And the word “continue” is important here because portions of the project are already underway, in addition to the previous submissions of wall design samples. Much of that work took place in Southern California and now the city of San Diego has a message for all of the construction contractors who have taken part in the effort. Don’t bother applying for any more city contracts because you’re going to be on their blacklist. (Free Beacon) As President...
  • Exclusive–Rep. King: The Supreme Court Just Laid the Foundation for the Border Wall

    Breitbart ^ | 6/26/2018 | Rep. Steve King
    In one ruling, the Supreme Court has delivered two major victories to President Trump. The first victory is obvious: Trump v. Hawaii validates the President’s broad authority to restrict entry of specified foreign nationals into the United States when the President finds such entry is “detrimental to the interests of the United States.” What does this mean? It means, as I have argued, that President Trump’s “travel ban” limiting immigration from Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Chad, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen is constitutional. It means that President Trump does have the authority, despite the open-borders howls of liberals and illegal...

    Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs says if President Trump is “deceived” by the Republican establishment and House Speaker Paul Ryan into supporting an amnesty for illegal aliens, it will “most certainly” cost the GOP their majority in the House. During a segment of Lou Dobbs Tonight, Dobbs blasted a plan by Ryan and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) which would grant amnesty to at least 1.8 million illegal aliens who have been shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. According to the White House, Trump now supports the amnesty deal, though the president...

    Townhall ^ | 05/17/2018 | John Dempsey
    One of President Trump’s signature promises from his 2016 campaign was to build that “tall, beautiful wall.” Often, he would receive loud, raucous praise when he talked about it. Trump has been in office for almost a year and a half now. He has received expected pushback from Democrats. But he has also felt resistance from some Republicans. Both parties have been stingy with funding, leaving very few options. However, Sen. Bill Cassidy recently proposed a creative idea. Sen. Cassidy suggested that money seized from drug cartels should be used to fund the wall. It is a simple idea that...

    Among the alleged asylum-seekers parked on the U.S. border is a contingent of Hondurans, allegedly fleeing persecution, poverty, crime, and oppression.  If that is the case, then why is the Honduran government helping them, driving them northward under orders given to the Honduran ambassador, who is helping and escorting them? Leaders of a caravan of Central American migrants traveling toward the United States through Mexico have repeatedly accused the Honduran government of corruption and with failing to address the poverty, crime and economic conditions forcing families to flee by the thousands. So it shocked some observers when the Honduran ambassador joined...

    Republicans rolled out a two-thousand-page-plus omnibus spending bill Wednesday night, which they expect to pass by Friday's deadline, giving no one any real chance to read it. And while there is much in it for Democrats to like, there is much for conservatives to oppose, as Republicans ignore campaign promises to limit spending and grow government instead. Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, appeared on Fox News around 10 o'clock last night, telling host Laura Ingraham that he's read only about 200 pages of the 2,232-page bill, and "this is not about draining the swamp,"...

The lawsuit filed in a San Diego federal court alleged that Trump’s proposed wall violates federal environmental standards, as well as constitutional provisions regarding the separation of powers and states’ rights. The plaintiffs asked U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel to stop the administration from...

    The Border Patrol announced its third arrest of an illegal immigrant “Dreamer” on smuggling charges this week, saying agents nabbed a 26-year-old man who had picked up four illegal immigrants who just snuck into the U.S. from Mexico. Agents said they spotted the four men’s footprints and radioed to other agents who spotted the four getting into a pickup truck in a nearby citrus grove. After stopping the truck, they discovered the driver was in the U.S. under protection of the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty. On Monday, the Border Patrol announced arrests of two other Dreamers in California for separate...

    If congress in the past has authorized a border wall but there is no funding, why doesn't Trump just start a Go Fund Me campaign for the wall? Does anybody know if it would be legal. My bet is he would get all the money he needs in less than 30 days. And he would not need to negotiate on DACA. And if a Go Fund Me Campaign is legal or some other donation format is legal how can we get thie pitched to the Whitehouse?

    1. For a couple weeks now, I've been saying that DACA is not a bargaining chip, it's a bait. In fact, you just saw who Trump used it to bait the Dems into a Banzai Charge on his most heavily fortified position. 2. Having been humiliated by Trump, the smarter Dems in congress, especially in the Senate are going to be hella wary of doing that again. 3. It's not just that Trump humiliated them, it's also that the thought DACA was a certain winner politically, because all of their slanted Big Media polls have been telling them that for...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Trump administration announced Monday it was preparing to replace existing vehicle barriers along a stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border in New Mexico that officials call “an area of high illegal entry.” The notice published in the Federal Register said the area extends around 20 miles (32 kilometers) west of the Santa Teresa Port of Entry. According to the notice, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will replace the existing barriers with bollard walls to deter and prevent illegal crossings. Bollard walls are made up of sturdy, vertical posts that are spaced to provide visibility to the...

    President Donald Trump corrected his Chief of Staff John Kelly after he said that the president had “evolved” on the wall. “There’s been an evolutionary process that this president has gone through,” Kelly said in an interview with Fox News host Bret Baier, pointing out that Trump had “very definitely changed his attitude” towards DACA recipients and the wall. But Trump pushed back on Twitter against the suggestion that he had evolved on the wall. “The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it,” Trump said.

Sanders tweeted Saturday: SenSanders I'm not sure why President Trump wants to shut down the government over an $18 billion wall that no one wants, isn't needed and Mexico won't pay for.
