  • The Wall Is Being Built! (Slowly.)

    The U.S. government is currently installing sections of Trump’s 30-foot-high wall in three places. The good news for those who wish to see a wall built along the U.S.–Mexican border is that U.S. Customs and Border Protection has built seven miles of 30-foot-high wall in the past few months, and roughly 30 more miles of high fencing are slated for construction. The bad news is that there’s still a lot of border to go. New reports from Carlos Diaz, southwest branch chief of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, indicate that one of the three current wall projects is nearly...
  • Why Building a Border Wall Is a Morally Good and Biblically Justifiable Action

    Is building a wall on our border a morally good action? As a professor who has taught biblical ethics for 41 years, I think it is – in fact, the Bible itself repeatedly views protective walls with favor. WALLS GIVE PEACE AND SECURITY In the world of the Old Testament, people built walls around cities to protect themselves from thieves, murderers, and other criminals, and from foreign invaders who would seek to destroy the city. People could still enter the city, but they had to do so by the gate, so that city officials would have some control over who...

    Exit polls show baseball-loving nationalist who counts Jeremy Corbyn as a friend is set to become new president. A baseball-loving left-wing nationalist who has vowed to crack down on corruption, rein in Mexico’s war on drugs and rule for the poor has been elected president of Latin America’s second-largest economy, exit polls suggested on Sunday night. Andrés Manuel López Obrador, a silver-haired 64-year-old who is best known as Amlo and counts Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn among his friends, was set to be elected with 49% of the vote, according to a poll conducted by the El Financiero newspaper. López Obrador’s...
  • Federal Judge Orders Migrant Family Reunification Within 30 Days

    A federal judge in California ordered the Trump administration to end its migrant family separation policy within 30 days late Tuesday. U.S. District Court Judge Dana Sabraw of San Diego issued the preliminary injunction, finding the practice likely violates the Constitution. The decision is not a ruling on the merits of the dispute. “Asylum seekers like Ms. L. and many other class members may be fleeing persecution and are entitled to careful consideration by government officials, particularly so if they have a credible fear of persecution,” he wrote. “We are a country of laws, and of compassion. We have plainly...
  • 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...

    After visiting a migrant detention facility on Friday, California Sen. Kamala Harris (D) accused the Trump administration of committing "crimes against humanity." Harris visited the Otay Mesa Detention Facility near San Diego, California, to meet with migrant mothers who had been separated from their children, according to Bloomberg. "This is outrageous," Harris said, addressing a crowd of several hundred protesters outside the facility, Bloomberg reported. "This is clearly a crime against humanity that is being committed by the United States government and we have to stop it." Harris blasted the administration for giving "no indication" of how the process of reuniting separated migrant families would work. More...
  • The Biblical Case for a Big, Beautiful Border Wall

    06/18/2018 9:52:11 AM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 10 replies
    The Bible is filled with examples of walls that are presented as a positive symbol of law and order. Our word for “city,” from the Latin cititas means a walled, protected space. The Hebrew qiryah, used to denote the cities in the Bible, has the exact same meaning. The people inside the walls were protected and allowed to prosper in peace. Cities where the walls have been torn down or reduced to rubble were unprotected and the result was chaos, lawlessness and misery. Nehemiah’s great task in the Bible was to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem. It was the Make...

    Cutting to the chase, right here, right now, is how our fine President can easily pay for the wall. The wall he is attempting to build— and taking even more abuse — for our nation’s best interests. This surefire solution which will pick up the tab on ‘his’ wall is an idea I have been plagued with ever since he, in his obvious masochistic lust, took over the Oval Office. Other people might have suggested what I’m about to propose. But the idea certainly hasn’t achieved much mileage, in that I have not heard this from any other source. Here...

    Construction on a section of President Trump's planned border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border began Friday in San Diego, according to local media. Local news affiliate Fox 8 reported that a section of border wall that features an "anti-climbing plate" will replace about 14 miles of improvised border fencing created from scrap metal. The section of the wall will begin about a half a mile from the Pacific Ocean, Fox reports, and will stand between 18-30 feet tall. Rodney Scott, chief of Customs and Border Patrol for the San Diego area, told Fox 8 that the construction will improve public...

    More than a month ago, a Delano couple died when they crashed their truck while fleeing from immigration agents. The man and woman, who were in the country illegally, had not been the intended target of Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Officials later said that the agents were trying to arrest another man and that Santos Hilario Garcia, who died in the crash, matched the description of their target. On Wednesday, ICE arrested and deported the person they had been after: the dead man’s brother, Celestino Hilario Garcia. Celestino Hilario Garcia was leaving his apartment complex in a car...

    GOP seeks farm bill support amid immigration debate House Freedom Caucus members are trying to flex some muscle on immigration in exchange for support on the farm bill; A sprawling and subsidy-packed farm bill that also would have tightened food stamp rules failed in the House on Friday, in a dramatic defeat for GOP leaders who faced an uprising from conservatives over inaction on immigration. The farm bill, which was voted down 213-198, had been hanging in the balance as the conservative House Freedom Caucus threatened to withhold support without an agreement on an immigration bill vote. The GOP leadership,...

    In a major blow to Republican leaders and after a week full of drama and last-minute vote wrangling, the House failed to pass a farm bill Friday, with several Freedom Caucus members voting no in protest to a lack of immediate action on immigration. The bill failed 198-213. House GOP leaders had been touting the bill as a fulfillment of their campaign promise to overhaul welfare programs. The vote also brings the GOP’s intraparty fissures further into public view. Thirty Republicans joined all Democrats in voting it down.

    WASHINGTON – Starbucks Executive Chairman Howard Schultz said the world is “questioning the moral leadership of America” and he urged the public to reject nationalism. ---- In my view, as a private citizen who travels the world, perhaps more than many of you here, there are real questions and real concerns and real doubts about the strength and conviction and moral courage of the United States of America. The Atlantic Council stands for relationship-building, trust and confidence among our allies. This is not a time for isolationism, for nationalism,” he added. ---- Schultz continued, “This is a time, as we...

    Sylvester Stallone is know primarily for three things. Firstly, he’s known for “Rocky”, the rags-to-riches movie that made him an overnight sensation. Secondly, he’s known for “Judge Dredd”, and essentially ruining a classic comic book character. Thirdly, he’s known for the “Rambo” movies, a series about a Vietnam war veteran with severe PTSD, who tries and utterly fails to adapt to modern civilian life. Rambo Gun Source: Orion Pictures “First Blood”, the original film in the series, hit the cultural zeitgeist at just the right time. This was probably less to do with the movie’s biting political commentary, and more...

    President Donald Trump told supporters at a speech on Saturday that if Congress did not meet his funding demands for border security, he may support a government shutdown this fall. Trump was speaking in Washington Township, Michigan, at the same time that the White House correspondents' dinner was taking place back in Washington, DC, with some lawmakers and current and former members of his administration in attendance. During his remarks, he alluded to the appropriations deadline at the end of September. "We have to have borders, and we have to have them fast," he said. "And we need security. We...
