    The Press Enterprise ^ | 10/15/16 | THOMAS D. ELIAS
    A year ago, as the presidential campaign swung into high gear, no one in either major political party – except Donald Trump – took seriously the possibility he might win the Republican nomination for president. -snip-Meanwhile, some recent polls show Democrat Hillary Clinton winning New York by a 20 percent vote margin and California by at least 17 percent. Sure, she consistently has had a small overall edge over Trump in national polling, but with so much of her support coming from just two states, she could win the popular vote but lose in the Electoral College if Trump wins...

    SAN ANTONIO -- A church on the North Side has been vandalized with graffiti that could be a response to views by presidential candidate Donald Trump, the church's pastor said. The tagging, done in black spray paint against the brick building's entrance into the Gethsemane Lutheran Church, reads, "NO TO WALL" and "ISLAM OR DIE." Below those words is a stenciled symbol of some kind, although it's unclear what the symbol means.

    Bolstering Donald Trump's pledge to build a wall and deport criminal illegals, a former Mexican foreign secretary said that there are "many ways" the Republican presidential candidate, if elected, can get Mexico to pay for the wall and deport four million immigrants. "The wall is a perfectly feasible promise to fulfill," said Jorge Castaeda, Mexico's secretary of foreign affairs from 2000 to 2003. Dismissing a Mexican Senate move to block federal payments to a Trump administration for the wall as "silly," Castaeda offered up several ways for Trump to find the money. "If he really wants Mexicans to pay for...

From Conservative Tribune: One of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trumps talking points in his campaign has that he wants to protect our borders.

    The UK is building a wall to keep the denizens of the Calais "Jungle" migrant camp from invading cars and trucks after some 22,000 breaches of the port road. The Jungle is a nightmare for the local population which has been terrorized by the mob of migrants aspiring to invade the UK. he French have blamed the British and the British have blamed the French. But the migrant invasion is not the fault of either alone. In a sense it is the fault of everyone in the European Union.

    The leaders of Thailand and Malaysia agreed on Friday to boost security cooperation and consider building a border wall to combat transnational crime and smuggling, an idea that appears to be gaining popularity elsewhere in the world. People-trafficking and the smuggling of contraband, including drugs and petrol, have flourished along the Thai-Malay border for years until a crackdown by Thai officials on human traffickers caused some of the routes to shut down last year. Analysts say separatist insurgents operating in Thailands deep south use Malaysia as a base to launch and plan their attacks.

    Just two months after voting to leave the European Union (EU), the UK has announced the construction of a great wall near its most porous border in Calais, to keep illegal migrants out. The UKs southern border checks are conducted in northern France and attempted illegal crossing have more than quadrupled in recent years. UK Border Force guards on French soil stopped 84,088 illegal immigrants last year, figures released last month show. The new 13-foot (4 metre) high wall will be built of smooth concrete, making it hard to climb, and will line the roads into the port town of...

The legislation is designed to counter any attempt from the U.S. government to make Mexico pay for a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border, and gives the Mexican Senate power to disavow international treaties if Mexican national and business interests are threatened by another state. "In cases where the property/assets of [our] fellow citizens or companies are affected by a foreign government, as Donald Trump has threatened, the Mexican government should proportionally expropriate assets and properties of foreigners from that...

Trumps crowd-pleasing antics aside, in his immigration speech in Phoenix, Ariz., on Wednesday he laid out a sensible, realistic path forward on genuine immigration reform. Trumps plan, even in its most primitive iterations, always has been based on the entirely commonsensical principle that Americas immigration policy should serve American interests. Taking this as a starting point, Trump laid out a ten-point policy that emphasizes...
