  • Border wall green light: Supreme Court REJECTS environmentalist lawsuit aimed at stopping project

    Build It: While POTUS Donald Trump still has RINOs and Democrats in Congress to deal with in getting his promised border wall built, at least he doesn’t have to worry about pesky lawsuits from environmentalists. On Monday the U.S. Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit filed by a number of environmental groups seeking to stop the border wall project by claiming it would destroy the planet or something. The Washington Examiner reported that the SCOTUS would not consider an appeal by three environmental groups of a lower court ruling that gave the government the green light to begin replacing border fencing...

    Nineteen-year-old Maryury Elizabeth Serrano-Hernandez, a Hondruan woman who made the grueling 2,000-mile trek to the U.S. border with her husband and three-year-old in tow, wasn’t about to miss out on what she called the “big reward”: having a baby on American soil. But when the family reached Tijuana a month after they set out on their journey, they found that thousands of Central Americans had had the same idea before them. With U.S. inspectors processing only about 100 asylum claims daily, Serrano-Hernandez — who was eight months pregnant — wasn’t about to wait her turn. Somehow she managed to scale...

    Defying fierce opposition from the United States and a few other nations, nearly 85 percent of the countries at the U.N. agreed Monday on a sweeping yet non-binding accord to ensure safe, orderly and humane migration. The debate over the Global Compact for Migration, the first of its kind, has proven to be a pivotal test of the U.N.-led effort to crack down on the often dangerous and illegal movements across borders that have turned people smuggling into a booming worldwide industry. “Unregulated migration bears a terrible human cost: a cost in lives lost on perilous journeys across deserts, oceans...

    Maria Butina, a Russian national and former American University student accused of acting as an undeclared Kremlin spy, reached a plea deal with prosecutors Monday months after initially pleading not guilty to illegally acting as a foreign agent. Butina, who stands accused of infiltrating Republican political circles to advance Russian interests during the 2016 presidential campaign, has maintained her innocence since she was arrested in July. Her attorneys have filed a request for a “change of plea” hearing for as soon as Tuesday.

    In Tijuana, you often hear hard truths that no one would dare express here.  Get a load of this bit of jarring advice from a Tijuana man to a caravan migrant who was seeking a job in Tijuana as he waited out his asylum claim to the U.S. "Don't come here with the mentality of Honduras," he said.  "This is a new country, a new state where you can change yourself if you want to." Cripes, what was that person talking about?  Was the Tijuana man suggesting that Hondurans are lazy?  I've never known any Latin American immigrants who had actual jobs who were lazy...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham said on Sunday that President Trump should not give in when it comes to the spending battle with Democrats over funding for the wall on the U.S. southern border with Mexico. “I’d want the whole five billion [dollars] because the caravan is a game-changer,” Graham, R-S.C., told “Sunday Morning Futures.” “One point six [billion dollars] is available to the president. He wants five. And after the caravan if you don't see the need for additional border security, you're just not paying much attention. So, Mr. President, dig in, do not give in when it comes to the...

    Internet billionaire Marc Benioff is urging the GOP Congress and President Donald Trump to fast-track 400,000 foreign visa-workers — plus 400,000 family members — to green cards, the U.S. job market, and the ballot box. “This is good for our economy,” Benioff said in a Tuesday tweet that was applauded by Silicon Valley lobbyists. “We need to grow our workers to grow our economy.” Benioff’s comment is a tautology: Expanding the population by importing more than 800,000 people would obviously grow the nation’s economy, retail sales, government taxes, company profits, and Wall Street stock options. But Benioff’s cheap-labor importation plan...

    ...Bundy naturally just disavowed the militia movement in solidarity with the migrant caravan, suggested that nationalism is actually the opposite of patriotism, and said that Trump’s America resembles nothing so much as 1930s Germany. Last week, Bundy posted a video to Facebook in which he criticized President Trump for demonizing the Central American migrants who were traveling in a caravan to seek asylum in the United States. “To group them all up like, frankly, our president has done — you know, trying to speak respectfully — but he has basically called them all criminals and said they’re not coming in...

    The final votes are being counted from the 2018 election. They confirm that the Democrats crushed Republicans. Let's start in the seat count. Republican Rep. David Valadao of California's 21st District conceded on Thursday to Democrat T.J. Cox. Cox's victory combined with other election results means that Democrats have picked up a net gain of 40 seats. As has oft been repeated, this is the largest Democratic House gain since 1974. It's a larger gain than Democrats had in the wave elections of both 1982 and 2006. We can go back even further and see how unusual it is that...

    Rep. Nancy Pelosi is digging in amid the fight over funding for President Trump's long-promised border wall, signaling she won’t accept a deal on DACA in exchange for wall money. Congress on Thursday approved a short-term spending bill to avoid a partial government shutdown, punting the immigration debate and other issues until later in the month. Speaking to reporters at her weekly press briefing Thursday, Pelosi (D-Calif.), the likely next House Speaker, said that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and the proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border are “two different subjects.” She later said that she and...

This came the same week that state officials announced new rules on how local police will handle immigration matters.ICE said the arrests had been planned before state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal released his directive, which the federal agency has criticized. The policy prevents police from inquiring about a person's immigration status unless it is relevant to an investigation. Jails also will not be allowed to detain...

    SAN FRANCISCO — A divided U.S. appeals court late Friday refused to immediately allow the Trump administration to enforce a ban on asylum for any immigrants who illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border. The ban is inconsistent with an existing U.S. law and an attempted end-run around Congress, a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said in a 2-1 decision. "Just as we may not, as we are often reminded, 'legislate from the bench,' neither may the Executive legislate from the Oval Office," 9th Circuit Judge Jay Bybee, a nominee of Republican President George W. Bush, wrote for...

    Victorina Morales, a housekeeper at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., disclosed in an interview with The New York Times this week that she had been working illegally at the facility for more than five years. Ms. Morales, 45, a Guatemalan immigrant, entered the United States at the California border without inspection in 1999 and settled in Bound Brook, N.J., a community that is about a 20-minute drive from Mr. Trump’s flagship golf club. Before working there, she packed Huggies disposable diapers, Dove soap and Neutrogena products at a warehouse and cleaned bathrooms at a hotel. At the...

    More than 7-in-10 households headed by immigrants in the state of California are on taxpayer-funded welfare, a new study reveals. The latest Census Bureau data analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) finds that about 72 percent of households headed by noncitizens and immigrants use one or more forms of taxpayer-funded welfare programs in California — the number one immigrant-receiving state in the U.S. Meanwhile, only about 35 percent of households headed by native-born Americans use welfare in California.

    A new German-Franco document that was presented on Thursday, states that EU countries that refuse to take refugees should pay to escape their responsibility, Reuters reports.The measure is seen as a form of “alternative solidarity” in which EU member states pay into the EU’s budget for developmental projects in Africa.The document aims to prevent renewed conflicts over taking migrants. By paying off their responsibility to take migrants, EU rows with countries that don’t want to take migrants or refugees could be prevented. Among other things, the document does say that a situation should be avoided in which all countries prefer...

    The left has always downplayed any such thing as "anchor babies" and derided the term as "offensive." But how else to explain the Honduran caravan migrant who managed to slip into the U.S. on Nov. 26 illegally and, surprise, surprise, gave birth to a new baby just a few days later?  That's the story from Fox News: SAN DIEGO – A Honduran woman affiliated with a caravan of Central American migrants has given birth on U.S. soil shortly after entering the country illegally. Customs and Border Protection said Wednesday that agents arrested the woman Nov. 26 after she entered the country...
