    President Donald Trump's long-promised border wall between the US and Mexico could costs billions of dollars more than estimated, a new report from a government watchdog agency said on Monday. The report from the Government Accountability Office, a nonpartisan group that forms part of Congress' oversight arm, said that "key information" is missing from the plans. It further concluded that the US Department of Homeland Security "faces an increased risk that the Border Wall System Program will cost more than projected, take longer than planned, or not fully perform as expected." Factors like a varying terrain and land ownership had...

    Some of you need to cease the denial and accept the harsh reality that the left hates you. It’s a fact, as much as the liberal gaslight gang and the conserva-sissy weakhearts deny it. You can tell that leftists hate you by the way that leftists tell you that they hate you.Take Sarah Jeong, please – hey, the New York Times was happy to get this bitter creep onboard because of her history of virulent racism. The Times saw her hate as a plus, not a negative, an asset, not a liability. You can’t draw any other conclusion – if you...
  • Trump is going to use America's strong economic numbers to ensure a GOP midterm victory

    If Trump is disciplined enough to make the economy his headline, there's not much Democrats can do to counteract his message. Sure, his 2016 election win was about a lot of things that aren’t always prominent, like immigration and cultural change. But according to the massive national exit poll, the economy was still the foremost issue in voters’ minds. Fully 52 percent named the economy as the “most important issue facing the country,” compared to only 18 percent who said terrorism, 13 percent who went with immigration and another 13 percent who chose foreign policy. The thing you still need...

    Congressional Republicans keep trying to downplay the possibility of a government shutdown this fall, just weeks ahead of midterm elections, even as President Trump returns again and again to that very scenario.

    OSSIPEE — A worker at a Jackson inn has been charged with a hate crime for physically removing two patrons from the establishment because of their religion and perceived national origin, state and county prosecutors allege. Priscilla Protasowicki, 32, will face an “enhanced criminal sentence” if the two counts of simple assault are proven to have been motivated by hate, said prosecutors. The simple assault charges carry a possible maximum sentence of five years in New Hampshire State Prison. In addition, Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald announced he has begun a New Hampshire Civil Rights Act claim against the woman....

And there is no one taking it seriously, apparently not even in the White House at this point. COULTER: No, I know. The original sin was Trump hiring all these establishment, swampy Never Trumper types. No, no one is there to tell him ‘Hey remember that promise you campaigned on and every single campaign rally...

    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...

    President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on Sunday released a seven-page letter he sent to U.S. President Donald Trump detailing how he plans to improve Mexico's economy and security when he takes office in December so that Mexicans do not feel the need to migrate. "There will be many changes," he promised in the letter. "And in this new atmosphere of progress with well-being, I'm sure we can reach agreements to confront together the migration phenomenon as well as the problem of border insecurity."

    (Reuters) - A federal judge said on Friday the U.S. government had made “very promising” progress toward reuniting some 2,500 immigrant children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border as part of a crackdown on illegal immigration. {snip} Nearly 850 parents had been interviewed and cleared for reunification as of Thursday and another 229 parents had been deemed ineligible because of criminal records, or because they “waived” reunification or for other reasons, the report said. The rest are pending review. More than 850 parents are facing final deportation orders, government lawyers told the court on Friday.

    The centrist Bipartisan Policy Center on Tuesday released a Luntz Global survey that revealed a conservative shift in the public’s view of immigration reform. Key findings directly from the report: ..Americans support the construction of a border wall, they also believe that technology and personnel, as well as border barriers, are critical to improving the nation’s border security. ..Voters strongly believe that people living illegally in the United States should have a path to legal status, but it shouldn’t be ‘for free.’ ..Concerns were highest over immigrants competing with U.S. citizens for government benefits and lower on job competition. ..Nearly...

    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...
