    Seven million dollars might not seem like a lot when you consider that the illegal drug business generates hundreds of billions of dollars of revenue for organized crime all over the world. But, at least there’s $7 million worth of hard drugs off the streets. A major drug bust occurred earlier this week at the U.S./Mexico border in Texas. Border officials said that an estimated $6,998,000 worth of methamphetamine, cocaine and what is believed to be heroin were discovered. Border agents at the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge cargo facility were alerted to a commercial shipment of stone blocks on Monday. Officers...

    An immigration judge in Arizona on Tuesday stripped prominent immigration and reproductive-rights activist Alejandra Pablos of her green card and ordered her deportation nearly a year after she was arrested outside a protest in Virginia. It was the climax of a case that has loomed over Pablos for years. But, she said, she’s not giving up yet. “La lucha sigue,” Pablos, 33, said in an interview. The struggle continues. Pablos, who since 2016 had worked for the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health in Annandale, said she plans to appeal the decision by immigration Judge Thomas Michael O’Leary. Pablos said...

    Congressmen and senators are supposed to be fighting for the American people, their constituents. But when Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer pounced on the president at the Oval Office on Tuesday for whom exactly were they fighting? Both the Senate and the House oath of offices are nearly identical. They begin like this: "I do solemnly swear or affirm that I will support and defend the constitution of the United States against all enemies foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same." At this point, are we even sure that Chuck and Nancy took...

    MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s top security official said Wednesday the government will close off illegal entries at its southern border with Guatemala, but didn’t say how the country plans to do it. Interior Secretary Olga Sanchez Cordero also said the migrant caravans that crossed the southern border in October “is no longer an issue.” “Do you know why it is no longer an issue? Because in five days this administration solved the issue, five days,” she said, referring to the first week since President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador took office Dec. 1. “The United States was impressed.” The new administration...

    A suspect in a 1987 bombing that wounded six American soldiers in Honduras is leading a group of migrants demanding entry into the United States. Alfonso Guerrero Ulloa organized a march of approximately 100 migrants to the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana, Mexico, on Tuesday, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported. Ulloa delivered a letter to the consulate on behalf of the migrants, asking for either entry into the U.S. or a payment of $50,000 per person. “It may seem like a lot of money to you,” Ulloa told the Union-Tribune. “But it is a small sum compared to everything the United...

    Border Security is National Security President Donald Trump is not Nancy Pelosi’s type of guy. Whine Cellar King Chuck Schumer and those brave boys grown tall hiding behind the voluminous skirts of the #MeToo Movement coyly identifying as ‘feminists’ are. Males who wear their self guilt as openly as they do their neckties such as Michael Skolnik, who as it turns out, led Louis Farrakhan advocating women lemming-like out on the Big Women’s March, are much more Pelosi’s cup of tepid tea.|

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer warned Tuesday in front of the White House that there will be a government shutdown if President Donald Trump refuses to budge from his demand for $5 billion of wall funding. He spoke after the tense meeting with President Trump.The bottom line is simple. The President made clear that he wants a shutdown. His position, if he sticks to his position for a $5 billion wall, he will get no wall and he will get a shutdown. The bottom line is very, very simple. That is, we want border security. We offered him border security....

    President Donald Trump sought Tuesday to pressure Democratic congressional leaders into supporting his demand for billions of dollars to build his promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, threatening to have the military build it “if Democrats do not give us the votes to secure our Country.” Trump tweeted the threat hours before Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi were to meet with Trump at the White House in an effort to avert a partial government shutdown on Dec. 21, when funding for some agencies is scheduled to expire. In a series of tweets Tuesday, Trump...

    The government snared more than 3,000 illegal immigrants in just one day last week, the administration’s top border official told Congress on Tuesday, saying the situation qualifies as a full-blown “crisis.” Kevin K. McAleenan, commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, said more than 1,100 of those caught either jumping the border or trying to come through a border crossing without permission were children, either traveling alone or with parents, and forced on the treacherous journey.

    Illegal immigration ticked up in November, but the number of those people traveling as families shattered records, Homeland Security reported Thursday, saying it’s proof that migrants have figured out how to game the flawed U.S. immigration system. More than 25,000 people who came as part of families were snared by Border Patrol agents sneaking across the U.S.-Mexico line, and nearly 5,000 more were encountered at official border crossings where they demanded entry. Nearly 5,300 more children traveling without parents were also caught jumping the border, the government said. The 25,000 family “units,” as they’re called, are by far a record,...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on Thursday flatly rejected the idea of approving funding for President Trump’s border wall in exchange for protections for illegal immigrant “Dreamers.” “They’re two different subjects,” the California Democrat said. Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are searching for a solution to a budget impasse, with Mr. Trump’s demand for $5 billion in border wall money the major hurdle right now. The president has suggested he would force a partial government shutdown unless he gets the money he’s asking for. GOP leaders on Capitol Hill are interested in delivering, but Democrats, who maintain veto powers thanks to...

    The Washington State University chapter of the College Republicans wants to build another mockup of a border wall on the Pullman campus to “own the libs mercilessly” and show support for President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration proposal. The club’s president, Amir Rezamand, is soliciting $2,500 on GoFundMe.com to pay for tools, building materials and “any miscellaneous costs the university tries to throw at us.” The stunt would be a sequel to a demonstration the club held in October 2016, shortly before Trump was elected. Conservative student activists erected an 8-foot plywood wall, featuring the word “TRUMP” in gold spray paint,...

    SAN DIEGO— An attempt to smuggle immigrants into the country illegally ended with three people dead and eight seriously injured in a crash in a remote, rugged area of California near the Mexico border, authorities said. The incident began Thursday afternoon when U.S. Border Patrol agents discovered tire tracks for several cars that ran from the international border north into th U.S. The agency calls such incidents "drive-throughs" — instances in which cars illegally enter the U.S., often through remote areas. They found a piece of a vehicle that they recognized as likely being from a pickup truck spotted nearby...

    Best selling author and conservative pundit Ann Coulter -- who early in 2016 predicted Donald Trump's presidential win -- said that because of changing demographics and the propensity of many young immigrants to vote for liberals, Donald Trump "will be the last Republican president." In a Nov. 28 interview with Editor in-Chief Alex Marlow on Breitbart News Daily, Coulter said, “Every day, more and more immigrants turn 18 and start voting, canceling out all of your votes. It’s about five more years. Trump will be the last Republican president." "You think, ‘Oh well, we may get another Supreme Court nomination,...

    n an interview with POLITICO, the president drew a red line in his funding fight with Democrats and said he doesn’t 'do anything … just for political gain.' For the past two years, congressional Republicans have persuaded President Donald Trump to delay the fight to fund his border wall, convincing him he would pay a steep political price for such a high-stakes legislative brawl. Trump is done waiting. Nine days ahead of a deadline that could trigger a partial government shutdown, with no solution in sight, the president told POLITICO in an Oval Office interview on Tuesday that he is...

    The Democrats’ Senate leader, Chuck Schumer, suggested to reporters Tuesday that he could endorse spending more than $1.6 billion in 2019 for President Donald Trump’s border wall. “We are for strong border security,” Schumer said, adding, “The $1.6 billion for border security negotiated by Democrats and Republicans is our position. We believe that is the right way to go … Stick to the $1.6 billion … We’re not negotiating in the press. This is our position.” But Schumer did not suggest what price he may demand in exchange for agreeing to President Donald Trump’s demand that $5 billion in border...
