    Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) called on his Democratic colleagues to give President Trump the funding for his long-desired border wall between the U.S. and Mexico, saying its construction is inevitable. “Give Trump the money,” Peterson told KFGO’s “News & Views” on Tuesday. “I’d give him the whole thing … and put strings on it so you make sure he puts the wall where it needs to be. Why are we fighting over this? We’re going to build that wall anyway, at some time.” The 15-term congressman said top Democrats look at him “cross-eyed” when he makes this suggestion. The funding...

    A plurality of U.S. voters point to immigration as the most important issue facing the country, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill on Tuesday. Thirty-eight percent of respondents said that they see immigration as their top issue – more than the 36 percent who said health care is the most important matter in the country. The findings come as a deadlock between President Trump and congressional Democrats over funding for a border wall drags a partial government shutdown into its fifth week. The findings also suggests that the topic of immigration could play an outsize...

  • Lawyers: President Trump Can Cite a National Emergency to Build the Wall

    The White House can use unspent funds to build a wall if President Donald Trump declares a national emergency and fends off various lawsuits, say lawyers cited in media reports. The New York Times reported: The Trump administration could point to two laws and say they allow officials to proceed with building a border wall without first obtaining explicit authorization and appropriations from Congress, according to Elizabeth Goitein, who oversaw the Brennan Center’s study and is a co-director of its Liberty and National Security Program. One of the laws permits the secretary of the Army to halt Army civil works...

    President Trump is expected to use Tuesday evening’s Oval Office address to tout statistics showing a dramatic influx of families, drugs and criminals crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, as he makes the case that the situation is a humanitarian and national security crisis necessitating an effective physical barrier. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, in briefings with lawmakers, has cited administration figures showing 161,000 family units crossed the border in fiscal 2018, a stunning 50 percent increase from the year before. She has also said 60,000 unaccompanied children crossed the border last year, a 25 percent increase. “More children and families are...

    Ahead of his Oval Office address on the southern border crisis, New York Times best-selling author and populist conservative columnist Ann Coulter says President Donald Trump must make the case to the American people that the border wall is the “compassionate solution” to stopping wage-crushing illegal immigration. During an exclusive interview on SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Tonight, Coulter said Trump must make the humanitarian case for ending illegal immigration straight to the American people, noting that amnesty for illegal aliens must immediately be ruled out. Coulter said: I would also go to all of the working class that are in...

    From all appearances President Trump is not backing down from his demand for border security that includes a border wall physical barrier. And while Democrats thought they had him painted into a zero-sum corner, well, there’s every indication the White House is prepared to let the partial government shutdown go on for months if needed.

    The White House on Friday released the border briefing President Trump tried to get Democratic leaders to see during a meeting earlier this week, saying the public should see the information behind the president’s case for why he wants a border wall. The briefing, which was to be given by Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, details increases in drug seizures, arrests of criminals and the surge of illegal immigrant children and families who the administration says are overwhelming agents. But attendees said Democrats’ top leaders interrupted Ms. Nielsen and wouldn’t let her give the briefing. “Some of those present did...

    We’re into Day 13 of the partial government shutdown, and there’s no end in sight. Common wisdom says the longer this lasts, the worse the politics will get for President Trump. I disagree. Trump isn’t likely to suffer politically because he’s not doing anything his supporters find objectionable. A Quinnipiac poll last month found that 43 percent of Americans, including 86 percent of Republicans and 45 percent of independents, support building the wall. Support for the wall is so high among Trump supporters that even Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) said this week that he supports it while blasting the president’s...

  • Ann Coulter: Trump ‘Will Fold’ on Border Wall

    01/02/2019 12:18:39 PM PST · by bryan999 · 177 replies
    Ann Coulter, perhaps the most vocal Trump supporter pushing for a wall on the southern border, said on Wednesday the president will cave on his demand for a wall. In an interview with radio host Mark Simone, Coulter noted, “the president and I have had a little tiff.” She continued: “For one thing, he actually did shut down the government — though don’t worry, he will fold in the end.” Coulter decried the president last month after the senate passed a continuing resolution to stave off a government shutdown that didn’t allocate funding for a border wall. Trump reversed course...
  • The Art of the Wall Deal

    12/28/2018 9:47:18 AM PST · by Kaslin · 22 replies ^ | December 28, 2018 | Wayne Allyn Root
    There is a wall deal to be done. If Democrats actually loved America and cared about the safety of our children, it could get done. But it's clear they don't. A deal is there for the taking. Before there was President Donald Trump, there was deal-maker extraordinaire Trump. That Trump wrote "The Art of the Deal." That Trump loves to negotiate. That Trump understands how to get a deal done. That Trump understands that both sides need to win something. I've got that deal. But first, a few thoughts. As I write this, the government has been shut down...

    President Trump on Friday threatened to "close the Southern Border entirely" if Democrats do not agree to provide money to "finish" building a wall on the Mexican border. Trump made the threat in a tweet on the seventh day of a partial government shutdown that entered its seventh day on Friday with no end in sight. The shutdown began on Saturday after Democrats rejected demands from Trump that $5 billion be included for the wall in a measure to keep the government open. "We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give...

    President Trump threatened to shut down the entire southern border with Mexico if his demands for more funding to build a wall aren’t met. Trump tweeted Friday that if “Obstructionist Democrats” don’t give him the $5 billion he is asking for to build his proposed border wall he will “close the Southern Border entirely.” “We will be forced to close the Southern Border entirely if the Obstructionist Democrats do not give us the money to finish the Wall & also change the ridiculous immigration laws that our Country is saddled with,” the president tweeted. “Hard to believe there was a...

    If you were elected president after decades of politicians doing nothing about the millions of illegals pouring into our country every year, committing crimes, dealing drugs, driving drunk, molesting children and killing Americans like Kate Steinle, and your central campaign promise -- repeated every day -- was to build a wall, wouldn't you have spent the entirety of your transition period working on getting it done? Wouldn't you have been building prototypes, developing relationships with key congressional allies and talking to military leaders about using the Seabees or the Army Corps of Engineers to build the wall? Wouldn't you skip...

    Have you seen the design for the Bollard Fence Design (steel slat picket-fence) that DJT has been talking up this week ? What do you think of it ? How penetrable ?The design features a see through capability, which has plusses and minuses. Steel like spikes crown each picket. Costs would be considerably less. Construction time minimized. Trump calls it beautiful. It certainly is more appealing than a concrete wall.Your thoughts please
