    Lawyers suing President Donald Trump over his decision to end special protections shielding certain immigrants from deportation are seeking unaired footage from his reality TV show “The Apprentice” to try to bolster their case alleging the move was racially motivated, the attorneys said Wednesday. Lawyers for Civil Rights, which sued Trump in February , has issued subpoenas to MGM Holdings Inc. and Trump Productions LLC demanding any footage shot during the production of the show in which Trump “uses racial and/or ethnic slurs” or “makes remarks concerning race, nationality and/or ethnic background.” Former White House staffer and fellow reality-TV star...
  • It’s Time for an Official ‘National Day of Remembrance for Americans Killed by Illegal Aliens’

    Each year since 2011, on the first Sunday of November, The Remembrance Project and other patriotic grassroots groups across America have observed their own National Day of Remembrance for Americans Killed by Illegal Aliens. This year, it falls on Sunday, November 4. But as hard as we tried, the media would give us little or no coverage, instead choosing to focus massive amounts of biased footage and news coverage sympathetic to the plight of illegal aliens, falsely characterizing illegals as people like us, “just wanting a better life.” But Congress has intentionally turned a blind eye to this terrible epidemic-sized...
  • Trump Says He'll Send As Many As 15,000 Troops To The Southern Border

    President Trump said Wednesday he could send up to 15,000 troops to the U.S.-Mexico border, which would surpass the number of soldiers currently stationed in Afghanistan. Speaking to reporters as he left the White House for a campaign rally Wednesday night in Florida, Trump said the number of military personnel on the border "will go up to anywhere between 10,000 and 15,000 military personnel on top of the Border Patrol, ICE, and everybody else at the border." The current number of troops deployed to the border is 5,239, the head of Northern Command, Gen. Terence O'Shaughnessy, said on Tuesday. He...
  • Billionaire Koch Brothers: ‘Against Our Principles’ to End Anchor Baby Policy

    The pro-mass immigration, GOP megadonor, billionaire Koch brothers are opposing President Trump’s plan to executively end birthright citizenship, which rewards the U.S.-born children of illegal aliens. On Tuesday, President Trump announced that he is readying an executive order to end birthright citizenship in the U.S. The unilateral move would carry the country into the future on the issue, putting the nation more in line with similar Western countries. Currently, the U.S. and Canada are the only developed nations in the world that offer unrestricted birthright citizenship. The children of illegal aliens are commonly known as “anchor babies,” as they anchor...
  • MS-13 INFLICTS “REIGN OF TERROR” IN CALIFORNIA

    Democrats look the other way as sanctuary state allows criminal illegals to thrive. "How brutal murders and fear kept a town silent. MS-13 is like no other gang.” That may sound like President Trump at one of his rallies but it’s actually the headline of an October 19 Fresno Bee story by award-winning reporter Yesenia Amaro. “MS-13 carved out a reign of terror,” she writes, “resulting in at least 14 brutal murders in and around Mendota from 2015 to 2017.” Amaro charts how this reign of terror developed, and the bloodshed MS-13 has inflicted. “MS-13 slipped into Mendota relatively unnoticed,”...

    As the administration sends 5,200 troops to the border, the host painted GOP rhetoric as midterm election fearmongering. The GOP-fueled hysteria over the Central American migrant caravan traveling north through Mexico is nothing more than midterm election hyperbole, Fox News host Shep Smith insisted Monday. “There is no invasion. No one’s coming to get you. There’s nothing at all to worry about,” he said calmly on “Shepard Smith Reporting” on Monday. “But tomorrow is one week before the midterm election — which is what all of this all about,” he added. Smith tried to calm the public about the caravan...

    In Honduras she had run a stall selling pupusas, a local tortilla, but been forced to shut down after being extorted by street gangs. "If you don't pay them they kill you," said the woman, drawing a finger slowly across her throat. "It's like a tax of war, money to bandits, and you can't not pay. "They made me pay 300 lempira a week - $12. To you it does not sound like a lot, but for me it was a lot. I had to close." After shutting her stall three months ago the 35-year-old, who gave her name as...

    Latinos and Hispanics, legally here in the U.S. are speaking out against the caravan heading north from Honduras to the U.S. That was the report from Univision, which is hardly a conservative news site. According to the Daily Caller, they're saying things like this: “How is it possible that a caravan from Central America is on it’s way to the U.S. and the people are speaking the way they’re speaking, demanding to get in. No sir, this isn’t their country and they need to respect it,” one man said. Another woman told Megid, “like the president says, they can...

    As the “migrant caravan” surges through Mexico toward the U.S. border, U.S. officials are debating how to handle the mass of people once they arrive and demand entry into the Promised Land. Tensions are high inside the Trump White House, The New American reported yesterday, with the president’s aides and officials arguing about the president’s options. But a former federal prosecutor says debate is unnecessary. Trump can close the border.

  • US midterms 2018: Why has migration become a CRUNCH topic that could swing US midterms?

    THE US midterms on November 6 are shaping up to be among the most anticipated general US elections for years - but why has migration become such a hot topic among voters and how could it shape the result? American voters have the chance to affect President Donald Trump’s presidency and his ability to pass future legislation in the upcoming midterms. The midterms are general elections held every four years in the middle of a US president's office. They decide which US politicians will sit in Congress, the body responsible for law-making in the United States. Congress is made up...

    The caravan of migrants continues to move toward our border. This massive mob of well-fed, well dressed, rested migrants will attempt to force their way across the order. Progressive socialist Democrats will start whining about how they are so distressed being from countries that have treated them poorly. Celebrities will wring their hands and clutch their pearl about how poorly we are treating them. It will not be mentioned that they are in fact economic refugees, looking for jobs and handouts to improve their lives. They will be here just in time for the midterms. Although the distance is far,...
  • Why is there no right to live where you please?

    The Week ^ | October 24, 2018 | Bonnie Kristian
    The progression of a caravan of mostly Honduran migrants, now reportedly 7,000 strong, toward our southern border has inflamed America's perpetual immigration debate. Restrictionists quiver and fume about "invasion" and "assault," and we revisit well-worn controversies over amnesty and jobs, DACA and visas, crime and family separations and whether you should say "undocumented" or "illegal." But there is a more fundamental question which, so far as I can tell, generally goes unexamined in our immigration conversations: Why is there no right to live where you please? Of course, there are many practical constraints to an unfettered right to live where...

    HIDALGO — The Homeland Security Department's decision last week to speed construction of a border wall in the lower Rio Grande Valley has inflamed local residents just as the midterm election is in sight. Politically, it cuts both ways. As Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke stokes voter interest by reminding them about President Donald Trump's plans, Republican Sen. Ted Cruz also is using the issue to excite his base. At the border, where miles of gaps separate segments of wall constructed a decade ago — hardly any of it as imposing as the barrier Trump envisions — some residents are angry...

    Hundreds of Honduran migrants are headed for the United States border, just days after Vice President Pence sat down with the Central American country’s leader, urging him to take a tougher stance on mass migrations. At least 1,300 people, including young children, left San Pedro Sula in northern Honduras on Saturday, in what some are calling the “March of the Migrant,” Reuters reported. Bartolo Fuentes, the organizer, told the news agency that the group plans to march through Guatemala and into Mexico. From there, participants will request refugee status, which would allow them to stay in the country, or they...

    Troops from North and South Korea began removing some landmines along their heavily fortified border on Monday, the South’s defense ministry said, as part of a pact to reduce tension and build trust on the divided peninsula. Project details were agreed during last month’s summit in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, between its leader, Kim Jong Un, and South Korean President Moon Jae-in. In a statement, the ministry said the two sides agreed to remove all landmines in the so-called Joint Security Area (JSA) in Panmunjom within the next 20 days, with military engineers performing the hazardous task on...

    The United States was to begin construction in Texas on Saturday of part of President Donald Trump's border wall designed to curb illegal immigration, which he calls a security threat. Running along four miles (six kilometers) of the 2,000-mile border with Mexico, the new section will replace existing fencing along the boundary between El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, US Customs and Border Protection said in a statement. "This new wall will be far more durable and far more effective in deterring would-be illegal entrants," Aaron Hull, Chief Patrol Agent in the El Paso sector, said in the statement....

    I was having breakfast one early morning with a friend, who just completed his computer science degree. He was enthusiastic about his field of study and bragged about the successful opportunities awaiting in the burgeoning field of apps, smart phones, and driverless cars. We debated our career choices when he facetiously ridiculed my choice of study — history. “Why history?” he asked. “What is so interesting about studying what is dead and long gone?” It’s a common question asked by people about my profession. What my technocratic friend (and others like-minded) do not understand is that the dead sometimes have...

    No matter how globalism is repackaged, it always smells the same way in the end. For decades, the globalists have subtly (or sometimes not so subtly) been moving us toward a world in which national borders have essentially been made meaningless. The ultimate goal, of course, is to merge all the nations of the world into a “one world socialist utopia” with a global government, a global economic system and even a global religion. The European Union is a model for what the elite hope to achieve eventually on a global scale. The individual nations still exist, but once inside...
