    With no end in sight to either the government shutdown or the national security crisis at the southern border, Democrats continue to put their own political agendas over what’s best for America by refusing to negotiate with President Trump.By the time that Trump took to the podium on Saturday afternoon to propose a deal that would put federal workers back on the job and get the paychecks restarted for those affected and their families, power-drunk Nancy Pelosi had already turned down the opportunity to negotiate an end to the impasse.Scroll down to Video.Our border is not a political football Nancy....Americans...
  • Trump challenges Pelosi on why she wants to keep border walls she calls 'immoral'

    President Trump on Monday challenged House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has called the White House's proposed southern border wall "an immorality," to explain why she is not insisting on the removal of existing physical barriers, or opposing ongoing construction of new wall projects near San Diego, Calif. Trump, in a follow-up tweet, asserted that the country needs a "powerful Wall" to deter the incoming migrant caravan that marched freely through the Guatemala-Mexico border last Friday, after the gates were left wide open by officials seeking to avoid a confrontation. The caravan, which consists of approximately 1,000 Central American migrants, was...
  • Pelosi Should Come To The Table With Trump Says… The WaPo? !!

    Did somebody hack the Washington Post website?That was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the title of this WaPo editorial. Shortly after Nancy Pelosi declared that President Trump’s offer of a deal yesterday was “a non-starter,” the newspaper’s editorial board led with the title, “Make a Deal. Save the Dreamers.”To be sure, the editorial goes to great lengths to include a barrage of insults to the President before getting to the meat of their argument. They ensure their liberal bona fides by declaring that he doesn’t deserve to be rewarded for “taking the government hostage”...

    ... Kennedy added that he wished Republicans in Congress had used a criminal justice reform bill that was passed late Tuesday as leverage to get border wall funding. The bill, which was approved in the Senate by a vote of 87-12, will now head to Trump's desk. Kennedy, who did not support the criminal justice reform legislation, said he thinks the GOP "missed an opportunity here." "My Democratic friends are entitled to have their own positions. They were salivating over this bill and I wish we had tried to get something in return like the border wall. Border walls work,"...

    The airline Aeromexico is offering a "DNA discount" to encourage more customers to fly to Mexico. "Mexico's first destination is America, but America's first destination is not Mexico," the viral advertisement says. That is the reason why the company started a DNA Discounts Program. Aeromexico will give discounts to Americans who take a test showing they have Mexican ancestry. The more Mexican DNA you have, the bigger the discount.

    Hidalgo state Gov. Omar Fayad says the death toll from a pipeline explosion in central Mexico has risen to 66. Over 85 other people on Saturday were listed as missing a day after a massive fireball erupted at an illegal pipeline tap in the small town of Tlahuelilpan, about 62 miles (100 kilometers) north of Mexico City. President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador launched an offensive against fuel theft gangs drilling dangerous, illegal taps into pipelines an astounding 12,581 times in the first 10 months of 2018, an average of about 42 per day.

    The leak was caused by fuel thieves illegally tapping the pipeline in a small town in the state of Hidalgo, about 62 miles north of Mexico City, according to state oil company Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex. Video footage showed dozens of residents near the town of Tlahuelilpan gathered to collect spilled fuel in buckets, garbage cans and other vessels. Fuel was seen spouting dozens of feet into the air from the tap. Footage then showed flames shooting high into the air against a night sky and the pipeline ablaze. Hidalgo Gov. Omar Fayad said 20 people were killed immediately and...

The agency says 179 of the record 376 people who crossed were children, including over 30 unaccompanied minors -- children under 18 traveling on their own.

    GUATEMALA-MEXICO BORDER – Approximately 1,000 Central American migrants in the newest caravan have begun the process of crossing into Mexico from Guatemala, a Mexican immigration official stationed at the border between the two countries told Fox News on Thursday night. A new process instituted by Mexico means that migrants will have to wait five days for their paperwork to be processed before entering the country. The new system is meant to keep things orderly after the last caravan rushed the border … Julia Escalon, 43, of the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula, rested under the shade of a tree...

    Border security is an issue where the Democratic Party is suffering from schizophrenia. They were for it before they were against it. Donald Trump winning the 2016 election caused that, despite some very prominent Democrats, like Barack Obama, supporting border barriers in times past. Now, the war cry is that “a wall is an immorality.” That is coming from Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Walls are immoral. So, what about illegal aliens who murdered American citizens? Apparently, that’s not a concern; dreams of amnesty and expanded Democratic voter rolls have clouded the liberal mind. Pelosi: ‘A wall is an immoralityYet, House Majority...

    I’ve changed my mind about building a wall along the Mexican border. Build it!... So why have I changed my mind about the wall? Because of the caravans of immigrants assaulting our southern border... But the Democrats and the Republicans should be more concerned about another kind of threat... Politicians on both sides of the wall are going to look very stupid if there is a big terrorist strike because of something that came through Mexico.

    POLK COUNTY, Fla. – A foreign national was arrested and charged with repeatedly sexual battery of a child in Polk County on Wednesday. According to the sheriff’s office, Carlos Calderon, 41, of Auburn, a Mexican national, was arrested. Detectives were told by an adult of a disclosure made by a child (who is 12-years-old or younger) that Calderon had sexually explicit photos of a child on his cell phone. Further investigation revealed the child disclosed she had been repeatedly sexually battered and violated by Calderon, starting when she was 7-years-old. Detectives got access to Calderon’s cell phone and discovered the...

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., acknowledged Wednesday on Fox News' "Special Report with Bret Baier" that border walls "obviously" work in some areas, and he rejected suggestions that barriers should be removed where they already exist. The No. 2 House Democrat additionally asserted that the question of whether to fund President Trump's proposed border wall -- a dispute at the center of the unprecedented partial federal government shutdown -- is "not an issue of morality." Hoyer's comments were seemingly at odds with the positions of other House Democrats, who have argued that border walls like the one Trump is...

    Last week we discussed the news that another large group of people in Honduras clearly hadn’t received the memo and were forming up yet another caravan to head to the United States. Despite efforts by both Mexico and the United States to find some other alternative for them, a group of more than 500 Hondurans packed up their things and set out in short order. As of last night, they had already crossed the border into Guatemala, presenting themselves in a reportedly orderly fashion. (Associated Press) The latest caravan of Honduran migrants hoping to reach the U.S. has crossed...

    Back on November 26, Maryury Hernandez, a God-fearing pregnant migrant from Honduras, entered the country with her husband and three-year-old son in search of "better lives" for her children and "to keep them safe" (so she makes the hazardous trek north?), says journalist Ruben Navarrette, who is "extremely grateful for his citizenship." The problem is, she entered illegally, which makes her eligible for deportation. "I feel like a criminal," said Maryury. She is a criminal. A pregnant foreigner may go to the U.S. to give birth. She doesn't violate any U.S. laws if she has a visa. Still, U.S. Customs,...

    LORDSBURG, N.M. — Ranchers and farmers near the U.S.-Mexico border have been finding prayer rugs on their properties in recent months, according to one rancher who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation by human smugglers. The mats are pieces of carpet that those of the Muslim faith kneel on as they worship during their unauthorized trek into and through the United States. "There’s a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico," the rancher said. "People, the general public, just don’t get the terrorist threats of that. That’s what’s really scary. You don’t know what’s coming across....

    Here is a U.S.-Mexican border snapshot. The Coronado National Forest, in New Mexico and Arizona, shares a 53-mile border with Mexico. In 2010, the average number of illegals crossing through that 53-mile stretch were 35,000 per year, of which Customs and Border Protection (CBP) estimated catching about half. There was no effective barrier. Most of those they would catch would be ten miles north of the border on or near Interstate 10, which effectively created a 500-square-mile-plus no man's land of public space, unsafe for entry by the general public. The ranchers who had private land within the area had...

    The optics for the latest caravan don't get much worse than this: Honduran border police arrested a 26-year-old fugitive they said was leading it and hauled him off to prison to serve the 15-year prison term that came of his 2015 conviction.  Caravan leader Juan Carlos Molina's crime? Raping a younger-than-12-year-old, his own little cousin, sneaking into her home as she awaited her mother's return from a late-working job with the door to her home ajar to let her back in, according to the Honduras's Diario La Tribuna. If she had to leave the door open, it's quite likely it's because she had to go to sleep,...

    A new caravan of Honduran migrants has set out toward the U.S., prompting President Trump to press his case that a border wall is the only way to stop illegal immigration. A group of about 500 migrants, including families, set out from a bus station in the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula late Monday, according to video images on local media and Karla Rivas, an official with ERIC, a local Jesuit organization that monitors migration. Another group of some 600 migrants set out early Tuesday, Ms. Rivas said, adding that they appear to have plans to merge. *** Part...

    The good news: Americans agree that there is a national-security and humanitarian crisis at the southern border, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac. The bad news: pretty much everything else in the poll. Not only do respondents approve of a Democratic plan to re-open most of the shuttered agencies in the government, a solid majority puts the blame for the standoff on Donald Trump, not Nancy Pelosi or Chuck Schumer: American voters support 63 – 30 percent a Democratic proposal to reopen parts of the government that do not involve border security while negotiating funding for the Wall,...
