    There is no way Mexico would fund Donald Trump's "terrible" plan to build a wall along its border with the United States if the Republican front-runner wins the U.S. presidential election, the Mexican finance minister said. Trump, the New York billionaire developer and former reality television star, sparked outrage in Mexico when he vowed to force Latin America's second largest economy to pay for a wall along the southern U.S. border to stem the flow of illegal immigration and drugs. In a televised interview late on Wednesday, Finance Minister Luis Videgaray categorically rejected the proposal. "Under no circumstance will Mexico...

    Former Homeland Security Secretary Janet “Jan The Man” Napolitano who helped give hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens a stay of deportation now says she backs Barack Obama’s plans to grant broad, unqualified amnesty by executive action.

    The answer of course is that we no longer are one people. E pluribus unum is dead. The melting pot has been replaced with a toxic brew of “diversity”, of which our open borders policy - endorsed by members of both name brand parties—is one component that leads down the same path. The third world has arrived and it will be this nation’s future…unless Americans will get off their collective duffs and fight back. Some, in places such as Westminster, Maryland; Oracle, Arizona; Vassar, Michigan; Greece, New York are doing just that.

    CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico – A gunbattle erupted between Mexican police and gunmen near the Rio Grande on Saturday, killing one person and prompting U.S. authorities to close a highway that runs along the border in El Paso, Texas.

The gunmen attacked a municipal police patrol on a boulevard in Ciudad Juarez next to the border river, said Ramon Salinas, a spokesman for Mexico's federal police. The fighting escalated when federal police rushed to help, he said. One gunman was killed and three...

Drug cartels transporting kilos of cocaine and marijuana, gangs who think nothing of kidnapping and murder, traffickers smuggling human cargo, corrupt public officials lining their pockets by looking the other way—any one of these offenses represents a challenge to law enforcement.
