    Here is radical Leftist Democrat Candidate Rashida Tlaib, a Muslim, running for Congress in Michigan on CNN today where she advocated for abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). When pressed on whether she wants America to have Border Security – she would NOT say she does. Folks, THIS is today’s Democrat. This is the Democrat Party now. It’s not the Party of FDR, JFK, Harry Truman anymore. It’s a collection of radicals whose policies are dangerous for America. . . .
  • Kasich: People Supporting Family Separation at the Border Do Not Understand Religion

    Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) said American who agree with President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy that caused the separation of families “have not come to understand what faith is.” Kasich then cited Biblical doctrine of loving your neighbor. Kasich said, “The reason why I did not go to our convention and support Donald Trump as president is I’m not for a divider. I’m not for people who say the reason you don’t have something it’s because somebody else took your stuff that’s told victimization. I don’t believe in that.”

    Life is not without a sense of irony, as we just got word about an illegal alien who broke both of his legs as he was trying to enter the land of the free, home of the brave by jumping over a brand-new (and beautiful) thirty foot high wall. Who said that border walls don’t work? This unpleasant yet symbolic incident took place in the Golden sanctuary State of California on Sunday night, east of San Diego. The Border Patrol caught the incident on video, which shows the perpetrator laying on the ground after jumping over the bollard style border...

    Police in the US state of New Mexico have rescued 11 malnourished children who were being kept in squalid conditions in a remote desert compound. They said the children, aged one to 15, had no shoes, were wearing rags and "looked like Third World refugees". Five adults were found at the scene, including two heavily armed men. Police searched the site after receiving a message from a third party that read: "We are starving and need food and water." It is not clear how the group ended up at the compound in Amalia, near the state's border with Colorado. Police...

    Ivanka Trump broke with her father’s administration on Thursday, calling President Donald Trump’s policy of separating families at the U.S.-Mexico border a “low point” during her time in the White House, and saying she "vehemently" opposed the policy. “That was a low point for me as well. I feel very strongly about that, and I am very vehemently against family separation and the separation of parents and children, so I would agree with that sentiment,” she said when asked about the policy at Axios’s “Conversation on Workforce Development” Forum. “I think immigration is incredibly complex as a topic," she added....

    Speaking during a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte at the White House Monday, President Donald Trump doubled down on closing the government over border security. "As far as the border is concerned and personally, if we don't get border security after many many years of talk within the United States, I would have no problem doing a shutdown. It's time we had proper border security," Trump said. "We're the laughing stock of the world. We have the worst immigration laws anywhere in the world." "We need border security. Border security includes the wall but it includes...

    Here is Democrat Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, who is the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee Chair (DCCC), on “This Week” today. Martha Raddatz pressed him on whether Democrats really want to abolish ICE. Listen to how he tried to avoid the question twice. At the end, Ohio Republican Rep. Steve Stivers pointed out to Martha that Lujan did not answer the question, to which Raddatz agreed. Republicans need to hammer this home from now to November – Democrats want Open Borders and oppose Law and Order. . . .

    Securing funding for President Donald Trump’s proposed border wall once again seems to be getting punted further down the road by congressional leadership. During a radio interview with WHAS on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border will likely not make it into the next funding legislation, which must be passed by the end of September in order to avoid another government shutdown. When directly asked if the funding of the border wall would have to wait until after midterm elections, the Republican senator replied “probably,” noting that it is “something [Democrats and Republicans]...
  • Senate to ignore $5 billion border wall plan in the House

    The Washington Examiner ^ | July 20, 2018 | Susan Ferrechio
    The Trump administration this week cheered a new House bill to spend $5 billion on a Southern border wall, but its passage is highly unlikely because Senate Republicans are already prepared to cut that number by more than two-thirds. The fiscal year 2019 House Homeland Security Appropriations spending bill would give a major boost to border wall funding. Beyond the billions of dollars in funding for 200 miles of "new physical barrier construction" along the U.S.-Mexico border, it would also provide funding for improvements aimed at achieving “100 percent scanning” of the border within five years. The measure will soon...

    Breitbart ^ | 18 Jul 18 | Neil Munro
    Senate Democrats are rallying behind a “family reunification” bill which promises a policy of catch-and-release for nearly all migrants who bring their children over the border. The bill would allow the migrant parents to stay in the United States until their children’s legal pleas are finally resolved. That legal stay could last for several years if the courts’ existing two-year backlog of 700,000 cases is increased by many migrants eager to accept the Democrats’ catch-and-release invite. snip The Reunite Every Unaccompanied Newborn Infant, Toddler and Other Children Expeditiously (REUNITE) Act, is sponsored by California Sen. Kamala Harris, Oregon Sen. Jeff...

    During an interview with the editor-in-chief of Tikkun Magazine, Rabbi Michael Lerner‏, Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) said it was an “injustice” that corporations are allowed to cross borders seeking low wage workers but workers are not allowed to cross the border seeking higher wages. Ellison said, “An undocumented worker is an exploited worker. We just have to say the 12 million undocumented people in the United States are here because somebody wants them to be. They want them to do the work but they don’t want them to have any rights, they don’t want to pay them fairly, they don’t...

    A fiscal 2019 spending measure was introduced in the House on Wednesday that provides $5 billion for a southern border wall and additional funding for border security that aims to achieve “100 percent scanning” of the border within five years. The Homeland Security appropriations subcommittee measure would fund more than 200 miles of “new physical barrier construction” along the U.S.-Mexico border. The legislation also includes $223 million to add 375 additional border patrol agents above the Trump administration request, including 140 canine teams, that, according to the House Appropriations Committee, will “initiate a five-year strategy toward achieving 100 percent scanning...

    It’s time we all faced a cold reality: no one actually “cares-cares” about those kids separated from their families at the border.  Oh, we all feel the emotions: sickening sadness, sympathy, national embarrassment, frustration, and anger.  Those feelings, however, aren’t really because “kids are kept in cages,” but rather because Trump put kids in cages. Look, the reason we study history is so that we can learn from it.  Our 21st Century history tells us that 99.999% of the American people don’t freak out whenever kids are kept in cages or separated from their parents.   It’s happened for centuries.  Almost...

    Contrary to reports of mass confusion at the Southwest Border, where the Department of Health and Human Services is under a court order to reunite children with the parents who brought them here illegally, "there is no confusion whatsoever," HHS Secretary Alex Azar told Fox News Thursday morning. Azar said his department is working against a court-imposed deadline to reunite the 11,800 children with the people who are claiming to be their parents. The process includes DNA testing. "Every child is accounted for," Azar said. "We know every child, where they are. We know the record -- the last time...
