    Conservative Internet pundits Diamond and Silk slammed congressional Democrats for negotiating on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program with a mentality comparable to Burger King's old slogan "have it your way." "I understand that they are so keen on DACA. But listen, this is not Burger King, you can't have everything your way. You gonna have to come to the table. You have to negotiate," Lynnette Hardaway, also known as Diamond, told Fox News Friday.
  • Trump contradicts top aide, says border wall stance has not 'evolved'

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday said his concept of a wall along the U.S. border with Mexico "has never changed or evolved," contradicting comments made by his chief of staff. White House chief of staff John Kelly told Hispanic lawmakers during a Wednesday meeting that some of Trump's immigration views during the campaign were "uninformed," according to reports in the Washington Post and New York Times. Kelly, in an interview later with Fox News, said the Republican president's views have evolved. In an apparent rebuke of Kelly, Trump tweeted on Thursday: "The Wall is the Wall,...

    ....The Wall will be paid for, directly or indirectly, or through longer term reimbursement, by Mexico, which has a ridiculous $71 billion dollar trade surplus with the U.S. The $20 billion dollar Wall is “peanuts” compared to what Mexico makes from the U.S. NAFTA is a bad joke!

    White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly told Democratic lawmakers Wednesday that the United States will never construct a physical wall along the entire stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border and that some of President Trump’s campaign promises on immigration were “uninformed.” The comments put Kelly at odds with Trump, who repeatedly said during his presidential campaign that he would build a border wall that Mexico would pay for, not U.S. taxpayers. Kelly met with members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, House Minority Whip Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.) and Rep. Judy Chu (D-Calif.), who chairs the Congressional Asian Pacific American...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - A bipartisan agreement among a handful of senators to prevent deportation of hundreds of thousands of young immigrants includes a pathway to citizenship that would take up to 12 years. The Associated Press on Saturday obtained details of the deal that includes $1.6 billion for structures including a wall for border security. The agreement between three Republican and three Democratic senators would prevent deportation of hundreds of thousands of so-called Dreamers, who were brought to this country as children and are here illegally. President Donald Trump and some GOP congressional leaders have said the bipartisan deal is...

    I am normally smart enough to stay out of my local Costco store on a Saturday afternoon. But yesterday I was out of my allergy meds, planning a visit to my crazy-sweet-cat-lady sister-in-law today and – having a real cat allergy (insert sad face here) - I committed an unforced error: I decided to pick up a few additional items while I was there.  The whole experience was worse than I imagined. The icy parking lot was a nightmare, I had to stalk someone to get a parking spot.  Shopping cart availability was limited to a bring-your-own-in-from-the-freezing-cold-parking-lot and the aisles...
  • Watch: Dick Durbin Advocated for Ending ‘Chain Migration’ in 2010, a Term He Now Says is Racist

    In 2010, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) advocated on the Senate floor for ending the process known as “chain migration,” whereby newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S., a term that he now claims insinuates racism. While asking Congress to pass the expansive and failed “DREAM Act” amnesty, which would start by legalizing millions of illegal aliens, Durbin touted the fact that the legislation at the time would have ended chain migration, preventing newly amnestied illegal aliens from bringing their extended family members to the U.S. “The DREAM Act would not allow what is...

    Using newly released detailed data on all prisoners who entered the Arizona state prison from January 1985 through June 2017, we are able to separate non-U.S. citizens by whether they are illegal or legal residents. This data do not rely on self-reporting by criminals. Undocumented immigrants are at least 142% more likely to be convicted of a crime than other Arizonans.

    The tricks of the multibillion-dollar drug business include using drones, submarines, ultralight planes and even frozen sharks to transport product across the US-Mexico border. Just consider that in 2016, US Customs and Border Protection Air and Marine Operations agents attempted to seize a submarine in the Pacific Ocean with nearly $194 million worth of cocaine. And yet President Trump argues that his proposed border wall, a throwback to a bygone era, will "stop much of the drugs from pouring into this country and poisoning our youth."

    MEXICO CITY -- Five states in Mexico now have the sternest "do not travel" advisories under a revamped U.S. State Department system unveiled Wednesday, putting them on the same level as war-torn countries like Syria, Afghanistan, Yemen and Somalia. The five states are Tamaulipas on the U.S. border and Sinaloa, Colima, Michoacan and Guerrero on the Pacific coast. All the states are hotspots of drug cartel activity, either hosting trafficking routes or extensive drug-crop cultivation. The State Department had previously discouraged travel to all or part of those states but the new warnings are sterner, placing them on a level...

    DALLAS - A man who was in the country illegally when he hit and killed a motorcyclist in Grand Prairie was recently arrested for trying to sneak back across the border. Border Patrol agents tracked 34-year-old Alejandro Pardo-Castro through some footprints and found him near a ranch south of Brackettville on Saturday. Pardo-Castro had no driver license and was here illegally when he hit and killed Modena Dollison, 43, of Waxahachie, on Hwy 161 near I-20 in Sept. 2011, according to court papers. Pardo-Castro was convicted of criminally negligent homicide. He served 18 months in prison before he was deported....

    Companies vying to build President Donald Trump’s promised border wall started creating prototypes late last year. Fisher Sand & Gravel is one of four companies selected to create a prototype for the proposed border wall between the U.S. and Mexico. CEO Tommy Fisher joined today’s show to talk about the measurements and building process proposed by his company. The proposed design would be built with the goal of a 150-year lifespan. It would be “solid concrete,” measuring 32 feet high and 2 and a half feet thick. According to Fisher, the wall could start construction as soon as April if...

To fund his border wall, the president is asking Congress to approve $18 billion in funding, CBS News reported...

    During a meeting at the White House on immigration, President Trump told Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen never to “mention seven years again” in reference to the timeframe that DHS claimed it would take to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. “I can build it for less,” Trump said in regard to the recent DHS report which stated that it would cost them $18 billion to build the border wall. “I must tell you, I’m looking at these prices and somebody said $42 billion,” Trump said. “This is like the aircraft carrier.

Sen. Dick Durbin issued an angry response to Trump’s tough negotiating style: "It’s outrageous that the White House would undercut months of bipartisan efforts by again trying to put its entire wish-list of hardline anti-immigrant bills—plus an additional $18 billion in wall funding. Durbin also tried to blame Trump for the Democrats’ refusal to offer any significant border security upgrade, or to...

Sanders tweeted Saturday: SenSanders I'm not sure why President Trump wants to shut down the government over an $18 billion wall that no one wants, isn't needed and Mexico won't pay for. What the American people want, overwhelmingly, is to provide legal protection and a path toward citizenship for 800,000 Dreamers. 1:18 PM - Jan 6, 2018 The socialist senator did not provide any data to back this claim up.
