    GOP senators are nudging President Donald Trump to give up hopes for a $5 billion down-payment on a border wall in 2019. “My goal is to get the [budget] bills passed” in December, said Sen. Richard Shelby, the GOP chairman of the Senate’s appropriations committee, said Nov. 15 after meeting Trump for a budget discussion. His committee has penciled in $1.6 billion for the wall in 2019, compared to the $5 billion in the draft House bill. “If it’s ‘Wall or nothing!’ they’re going to get nothing,” the top Democrat on the Senate’s appropriations bill, Sen. Patrick Leahy, said November...

    Hours after images of migrants climbing a border wall in San Diego went viral, the Homeland Security Department deployed razor wire Wednesday to prevent a repeat. The immigrants, who said they were the vanguard of the caravans streaming north through Mexico, ascended the fence Tuesday in a display of defiance. Video and photos showed them cheering and jeering atop the slat-style fence. Although no arrests or confrontations were reported, Homeland Security took immediate steps to try to keep others from climbing by deploying concertina wire, which coils over itself, creating a thorough barrier. “As we have said repeatedly, being a...

    MEXICO CITY (dpa-AFX) - The US government has awarded a $167-million contract to a Galveston, Texas-based construction company to build a levee wall in south Texas along the United States' border with Mexico to prevent the flow of drugs and illegal immigrants to the country. The contract was awarded the day hundreds of U.S.-bound Latin American migrants, who started their grueling journey on foot from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala, arrived at the border fence that separates Mexico from California. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced Wednesday that as per the contract, SLSCO will build an 8-mile stretch of...
  • Midterms: Paul Ryan’s Republicanism Tanks at the Ballot Box. Again

    The night before the midterm elections, House Speaker Paul Ryan touted “tax reform 2.0,” the economy, and the rebuilding of the United States military as the agenda accomplishments of the Republican-controlled Congress. “Frankly, our members feel pretty good because they have a really good message … I mean look at what we’ve just been able to achieve in Congress with the President in the last two years,” Ryan told Fox News’ Bret Baier. “A record economy, the military being rebuilt, people feeling better about things … wages growing faster than they have since before the recession.” The accomplishments of the...

    Troops from Camp Pendleton and Texas reported for their first day of work Thursday along the U.S.-Mexico border in San Diego... Much of the focus, at least initially, will be on strengthening the border barrier... So far, some 1,300 troops have been assigned to support operations along the California-Mexico border... The Defense Department said another 1,500 troops have been deployed in Arizona and 2,800 in Texas. The total number of troops is expected to grow to more than 7,000.

    A record high number of immigrants were ordered to be removed from the U.S. in 2018, a new report shows. The report comes after President Trump made immigration a central focus of the midterm election campaign. Immigration officials ordered 287,741 new deportations in the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018, according to a new report from Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). TRAC obtained the data from the Department of Homeland Security through Freedom of Information Act requests. It's the highest number of new removal filings since the group began tracking deportation orders in 1992. Just over 5 percent...

    Mexico has offered temporary work permits to migrants who register for asylum, as a big caravan of Central American migrants makes its way through the country toward the US The plan also envisages temporary ID cards, medical care and schooling. But to qualify, migrants must remain in Mexico's southern Chiapas and Oaxaca states. The US has warned that about 800 troops may be sent to the US-Mexico border to stop the migrant caravan. "I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency," US President Donald Trump tweeted earlier this week. "They [the migrants] will be stopped!" The president also...

    As three separate migrant caravans slowly made their way north through Mexico on Saturday, newly arrived US troops worked to lay a barbed-wire fence along the Texas side of the Rio Grande. The soldiers worked with US Customs and Border Patrol officers to lay about 1,000 feet of fencing along the river, the Defense Department said. The makeshift barrier was installed underneath the McAllen-Hidalgo International Bridge, which crosses into Mexico. The overpass is in the small town of Hidalgo, about 250 miles south of San Antonio. “I saw that beautiful barbed wire going up,” Trump said at a Saturday campaign...

    The preeminent funder of border-busting campaigns in the U.S. and overseas now openly admits his efforts in Europe are aimed at destroying national borders on that continent. The unusually frank statement from frequent coup kingpin George Soros comes after Hungary's prime minister accused him of helping to orchestrate the ongoing invasion of the landlocked nation and the rest of Europe by illegal aliens. Soros is arguably the biggest mass migration-promoting coyote on the planet. He is also an admitted Nazi collaborator, described by David Horowitz as a "deracinated Jew," who argues that Muslims are treated so badly in the West...

    An Idaho elementary school came under fire after photos showed staff members dressed as the border wall for Halloween this week. The costume had the words “Make America Great Again” written over the front. The employees also wore costumes exploiting Mexican stereotypes. Photos posted to the Middleton School District’s Facebook page showed staff members from the Middleton Heights Elementary School dressed up in cardboard to appear like a wall, KTVB reported [near Boise]. The words “Make America Great Again” were written in red, white and blue. The teachers were also seen wearing sombreros and brightly colored ponchos. The word “Mexican”...

    Teachers and other staffers woking at Middleton Heights Elementary School in Middleton, Idaho are under investigation by the school district after wearing Halloween costumes to class that Superintendent Josh Middleton called "clearly insensitive and inappropriate." As local station KTVB reports, two since-deleted photos initially posted to the school district's Facebook page depict a group of staffers in the problematic costumes. In one, six people are holding portions of cardboard ostensibly painted to look like a border wall, with text reading "Make America Great Again." In the other, seven staffers wear ponchos, sombreros and fake mustaches. The superintendent was made aware...

    The news from the Treasury Department that the federal deficit has hit a six-year high of $779 billion should give President Trump added incentive to reset his agenda for 2019, regardless of whether or not the anticipated Democratic blue wave in the midterm elections materializes next week. A key element of that agenda should be the introduction of a financial transaction tax dedicated to all economic security payments (that is Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, Unemployment Insurance and other forms of public assistance). Such a tax will address two of the biggest threats to our continued economic health: the federal...

The group of hundreds of illegal migrants just trekked across Guatemala into Mexico, violently clashing with Mexican authorities as they attempted to prevent the small invasion https://www.teaparty.org/proof-peaceful-migrant-caravan-violent-armed-331143/

    Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) is urging Congress to build President Trump’s proposed border wall, saying that a 7,000-strong migrant caravan is “hell-bent” on “assaulting our national sovereignty.” Brooks has cosponsored House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy’s Build the Wall, Enforce the Law Act of 2018 — which fully funds a border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border — and Rep. Bradley Byrne’s (R-AL) 50 Votes for the Wall Act, which Brooks says “neuters open borders Democrat Senator obstructionism by allowing a majority vote to pass legislation.” The populist-nationalist lawmaker says a border wall along the southern border is “now more than ever”...

    What would the Army do against a caravan of civilians, many of them women and children, anyway? Shoot them? The Republicans see this caravan as the perfect issue to rally the base and insure a big, robust turnout for the mid-term elections now two weeks away. Democrats would like to pretend that the caravan is just a giant day-care center filled with needy children that the heartless president doesn’t care about. This crisis calls for reason, patience, compassion and an immediate parlay among the affected nations in Central America, Mexico and the United States. In exchange for leniency and a...
