    Should we, instead of having a border wall and sovereignty, start leaving our doors wide open and place huge signs at the former border, “Welcome everyone, and please take our country?” I remember the curiosity and kindness that greeted me in the southern part of the United States in 1978. People went out of their way to meet this foreigner to their lands who came from such a far-away country. Many did not know where my country was but they knew it was an Iron Curtain nation where people lived under religious oppression, could not go to church, have a...

    Trump-hating “comedian” Kathy Griffin may oppose the president’s proposed border wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, but she doesn’t mind using one to block out her Trump-supporting neighbor. [snip] “I have a neighbor on this side and for some reason, ever since my Trump picture, he stand there and screams ‘' [snip] “We kind of built, like a little … As Trump would say, we built a wall,” she said. “I’m not a Trump supporter, but we built a wall.” [snip] And while Griffin isn’t shy about speaking out against the president’s efforts to keep Americans safe, Dawson’s tour makes it...

    If left to their own devices Progressives will always tell you definitively who they are and what they believe;  then they will follow their irrational beliefs to their illogical conclusions. Exhibit A (via Victory Girls): Trump, however, has it exactly backwards: The solution to America’s immigration problems is open borders, under which the United States imposes no immigration restrictions at all. If the U.S. adopts this policy, the benefits will far outweigh the costs.Legalize ALL immigrationIllegal immigration will disappear, by definition. Much commentary on immigration — Trump and fellow travelers aside — suggests that legal immigration is good and that...
  • Build The Wall: Don’t Panic if There Is a Government Shutdown

    Immigration continues to stay at the forefront of political debates. The left is relying heavily on illegal aliens obtaining amnesty. Illegals aren’t people to leftists. They are an opportunity to legalize new voters that will replace the lost voters since the 2016 election. President Trump knows this. He tweeted Sunday that shutting down the government is an option if the Democratic Party continues to obstruct his agenda. Trump has been ahead of political opposition since he announced he’s running for president, so there is no need to panic on the right. No, it is not ideal to shut down the...

    Taylor offered some thoughts about the President’s threatened government shutdown last night, but since we’re catching up from the weekend I wanted to take a second pass at it. In case you missed it, President Trump jumped back into both the immigration reform and budget debates on Twitter yesterday with what some viewed as perhaps a bit too bellicose claim in terms of how far he would be willing to go to secure the border. I would be willing to “shut down” government if the Democrats do not give us the votes for Border Security, which includes the Wall! Must...

    Never-Trump Republican leaders Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters this week they will not fund the Trump Border Wall in the upcoming spending bill. Ryan and McConnell passed a record $1.3 trillion spending bill in March. The spending bill funded Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities but NOT the Trump border wall. And now the Republican Party leaders are going to stick it to President Trump and his voters once again. They’re not going to fund the border wall in September. The Daily Caller reported: During a radio interview with WHAS on Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch...

David Price (D-N.C.) pushing back on Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s June decision to deny asylum to victims of domestic abuse and gang violence. “.... those fleeing gang violence and domestic violence would, under certain circumstances, be eligible for a credible fear claim,” Price said, vowing not to let the “draconian measure” stand.

    The U.S. government is currently installing sections of Trump’s 30-foot-high wall in three places. The good news for those who wish to see a wall built along the U.S.–Mexican border is that U.S. Customs and Border Protection has built seven miles of 30-foot-high wall in the past few months, and roughly 30 more miles of high fencing are slated for construction. The bad news is that there’s still a lot of border to go. New reports from Carlos Diaz, southwest branch chief of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, indicate that one of the three current wall projects is nearly...

    Wise Welcome Justice for Americans and welcome to well-meaning foreigners who come as blessing.

    A nationwide manhunt is underway for three illegal aliens who are accused of kidnapping and raping two underage, teenage sisters in Bowling Green, Ohio. According to WISTV10, four illegal aliens are alleged to have kidnapped and raped a 13-year-old girl and her 14-year-old sister at a Days Inn near Wooster Street in Bowling Green. The teen sisters allegedly escaped the four illegal aliens after being held against their will and sexually assaulted, and were quickly taken to the hospital by their mother and stepfather. Already in custody is 24-year-old illegal alien Simon Juan Thomas from Guatemala. Thomas was arrested and...

    Drug trafficking is now the most murderous criminal activity in American history. Overdose deaths from illegal drugs passed 50,000 in 2015 — many times the number of Americans killed by all Islamic terrorists over almost 20 years. Yet stopping the skyrocketing body count will require overcoming a pervasive misunderstanding of how drug abuse and addiction are caused.

    Is building a wall on our border a morally good action? As a professor who has taught biblical ethics for 41 years, I think it is – in fact, the Bible itself repeatedly views protective walls with favor. WALLS GIVE PEACE AND SECURITY In the world of the Old Testament, people built walls around cities to protect themselves from thieves, murderers, and other criminals, and from foreign invaders who would seek to destroy the city. People could still enter the city, but they had to do so by the gate, so that city officials would have some control over who...

    Just a quick observation regarding the Mexican election: I can only assume Mexico likes America as they encourage so many of their citizens and foreign visitors passing through to move here. Why then did they elect a Socialist sworn to make Mexico more like Venezuela than America? Mexico’s AMLO (Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador) Sweeps to Power in Historic Left-Wing Landslide. Not necessarily a winning strategy in the long runI think it must be the same game plan that Democrats have to Re-Make America.

    Breitbart ^ | 6/26/2018 | Rep. Steve King
    In one ruling, the Supreme Court has delivered two major victories to President Trump. The first victory is obvious: Trump v. Hawaii validates the President’s broad authority to restrict entry of specified foreign nationals into the United States when the President finds such entry is “detrimental to the interests of the United States.” What does this mean? It means, as I have argued, that President Trump’s “travel ban” limiting immigration from Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Chad, Syria, Venezuela, and Yemen is constitutional. It means that President Trump does have the authority, despite the open-borders howls of liberals and illegal...

    The Trump administration will not reunite any migrant children with parents still held in immigrant detention facilities unless current federal law changes first, a top administration official told Congress on Tuesday. The statement by Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, whose agency currently has custody of 2.047 children separated from their parents after being apprehended crossing the border illegally, confirmed what immigrant advocates have feared: The administration will reunite children with their parents quickly only if the parents drop their claims for asylum in the U.S. and agree to be deported. Under administration policy, immigrants claiming asylum are held...

    WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz announced emergency legislation Monday evening to keep immigrant families together after they cross the border into the United States. The legislation follows comments Cruz made on Saturday that essentially called for more resources to adjudicate asylum claims. He also called for keeping immigrant kids with their parents as long as those adults are not associated with criminal activity. "All Americans are rightly horrified by the images we are seeing on the news, children in tears pulled away from their mothers and fathers," Cruz wrote in a release. "This must stop. Now. We can end...
  • The Biblical Case for a Big, Beautiful Border Wall

    06/18/2018 9:52:11 AM PDT · by CondoleezzaProtege · 10 replies
    The Bible is filled with examples of walls that are presented as a positive symbol of law and order. Our word for “city,” from the Latin cititas means a walled, protected space. The Hebrew qiryah, used to denote the cities in the Bible, has the exact same meaning. The people inside the walls were protected and allowed to prosper in peace. Cities where the walls have been torn down or reduced to rubble were unprotected and the result was chaos, lawlessness and misery. Nehemiah’s great task in the Bible was to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem. It was the Make...
