    Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are calling on their Democratic colleagues to provide more details about a series of trips taken to Mexico while staff were touring border detention facilities, amid reports that at least one Democrat has been involved in “coaching” migrants there on how to exploit U.S. immigration law. In a letter to Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., obtained by Fox News, ranking member Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, said there were at least two committee staff trips into Mexico in August — one of which required Border Patrol agents to provide a special escort back into the U.S. “Although...

    Top members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) are demanding answers about the recent Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids of seven Mississippi food-processing plants that led to 680 arrests. In a letter sent to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan and ICE acting Director Mark Morgan on Monday, the lawmakers said the timing of the raids left communities in chaos and argued the agencies left children at risk by failing to provide sufficient warning to school districts. “This raid, which is the largest ICE raid in our nation’s history, is a continuation of the Trump Administration’s...
  • El Paso Rep. Escobar: Trump Is "Not Welcome Here" (anti-American latino disses Trump)

    Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) said Monday on MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' that President Trump is "not welcome" to come to the town while they are in mourning. It is shocking to me that he is so utterly self-aware. And this is why from my perspective he is not welcome here. He should not come here while we are in mourning." ZINGER OF A COMEBACK: Ms. Escobar is not the arbiter of who is and is not welcome anywhere other than her own home. Her statement is an expression of egotism, and of a type of self-righteousness that says, "If you don't...

    We have border apprehensions reaching or soaring past 100,000 for the past few months. Border detention facilities are filled to the brim. Luckily, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell passed a border package of $4.6 billion to help the Department of Homeland Security deal with the crisis; DHS had warned that they were running out of cash to deal with all the migrants. House Democrats are to blame for the delayed relief. They thought this crisis wasn’t real. They sat on their hands until the overcrowding offered them an opportunity to weaponize the suffering of these people against the Trump White...

    A Democratic congresswoman is sending staff to Mexico’s northern border town of Ciudad Juárez to find migrants returned from El Paso, Texas, under the “remain in Mexico” policy, then coaching them to pretend they cannot speak Spanish to exploit a loophole letting them to return to the U.S. “What we’re hearing from management is that they’re attempting to return people, and the story was changed in Mexico, where a person who understood Spanish before now doesn’t understand — where a person who didn’t have any health issues before now has health issues," the union representative said.
  • Democratic Congresswoman Sending Staff Into Mexico to Instruct Asylum Seekers: Report

    A congresswoman has been sending staff members to Mexico to coach asylum seekers on a loophole in the immigration system, according to a new report. Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-Texas) has sent aides to Juarez, just across the border, to speak to migrants who have been taken there after arriving at the United States under the recent policy change that requires asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for their case to finish. Aides to Escobar are telling migrants that they should pretend not to speak Spanish because the policy requires that migrants waiting in Mexico must speak Spanish, according to the...

    House Democratic leaders scrambled Monday night to rally support for their border funding bill amid a liberal outcry over the Trump administration's treatment of migrant children — and questions over whether the Democrats' proposal would do enough to protect them. Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and other top leaders huddled in Pelosi's Capitol office late into the night with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC), the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) and the senior appropriators who have championed the border bill. Lawmakers leaving the meeting said they expected changes to the $4.5 billion package to ensure stricter standards for the facilities...

    President Trump on Monday challenged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has called the White House's proposed southern border wall "an immorality," to explain why she is not insisting on the removal of existing physical barriers, or opposing ongoing construction of new wall projects near San Diego, Calif. Trump, in a follow-up tweet, asserted that the country needs a "powerful Wall" to deter the incoming migrant caravan that marched freely through the Guatemala-Mexico border last Friday, after the gates were left wide open by officials seeking to avoid a confrontation. The caravan, which consists of approximately 1,000 Central American migrants, was...
