Here’s How Far From CURRENT Law Our Border Debate Has Shifted

Written by Daniel Horowitz

In 2006, a super-majority of Congress passed the Secure Fence Act. It required that no less than 850 miles of double-layer fencing be constructed on our border. But it also codified a sense of purpose and a clearly defined mission for Border Patrol, to which everyone at the time agreed. It required the secretary of homeland security to “take all actions” necessary within 18 months of passage to “achieve and maintain operational control over the entire international land and maritime borders of the United States” (emphasis added).… Continue Reading

The Democrats’ Open Border Campaign Strategy

Written by Robert Knight

So, here’s the Democrats’ plan: Flood America’s southern border with millions of illegal aliens, hook them on government aid and eventually turn them into voters. It can’t be more obvious anymore.

Use the courts to strike down any attempts to secure the border.  Have judges rule against election integrity laws like voter ID or even the commonsense question about citizenship in the 2020 national census. Once the census count is in, grant more congressional districts and federal funds to jurisdictions swelled with illegals.… Continue Reading

Census Citizenship Question Is Lose-Lose Issue for Democrats

Written by Scott Rasmussen

It’s not clear if President Donald Trump can win the legal battle to include a citizenship question on the 2020 census, but he’s already won in the court of public opinion.

A ScottRasmussen.com poll found that 73 percent of voters nationwide believe it is appropriate for the U.S. Census Bureau to ask residents whether they are citizens of the United States.

Just because a question might be considered appropriate doesn’t mean it should necessarily be asked.… Continue Reading

Please Don’t Shut Up, AOC

Written by David Limbaugh

U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez may seem harmless, but she’s a virtue signaler on steroids and a nonstop headline-manufacturing machine.

The left adores her, and for conservatives she’s a gift that keeps on giving –because she is either too naive or arrogant to rein herself in. Don’t listen to those who advise not to be roped into her spotlight-seeking trap. Give her all the attention she craves — and more rope.

AOC conspicuously put her foot in her mouth again, but she clearly likes the taste of it because she refuses to remove it.… Continue Reading

Liberal Hypocrisy About Sanctuary Cities

Written by Star Parker

No one can accuse Donald Trump of not being able to grab attention.

He lobbed his latest political hand grenade, announcing that he is considering shipping off illegals who have been arriving in droves at the U.S.-Mexico border to sanctuary cities.

These are municipalities with ordinances directing local authorizes to not cooperate with federal immigration enforcement being carried out by Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

States, cities and localities that have assumed sanctuary status are invariably Democratic and liberal strongholds.

Obama’s DHS Secretary: “We Are Truly in a Crisis” at the Southern Border

Written by Trevor Grant Thomas

No less than Jeh Johnson, who served as Secretary of Homeland Security in the Obama administration from 2013-2017, has declared the situation at our southern border a “crisis.” Best of all, he did so on MSNBC.

Refusing to take the political bait from “Morning Joe’s” Mika Brzezinski when she condescendingly asked, “Do these proposals [from Kirstjen Nielsen, Pres. Trump’s Secretary of Homeland Security] even come close to representing America?” Much to Mika’s disappointment, Johnson replied,

When I was in office in Kirstjen Nielsen’s job at her desk, I’d get to work around 6:30 in the morning and there’d be my intelligence book sitting on my desk, the PDB, and also the apprehension numbers from the day before.

The Largest Border Surge in Border Patrol History

Written by Daniel Horowitz

The Department of Homeland Security has announced that the March border apprehension numbers will likely reach 100,000. A record 4,117 migrants were apprehended or “encountered” on Tuesday. If the numbers for March wind up smashing the February numbers, it would show an annual pace of 1.2 million.

It’s Time to Designate the Mexican Cartels as Terrorist Organizations

Written by Daniel Horowitz

Imagine for a moment that groups of Islamic terrorists set up shop at our border, killed tens of thousands of Mexicans, mutilated bodies, controlled a flow of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants every year over our border, and flooded our country with drugs and gangs. These organizations, in our “hypothetical,” operate in over 40 countries, are flush with weapons, money, and military-style tactics, control operations inside our country, and bring in drugs like fentanyl and carfentanil that are essentially chemical weapons.… Continue Reading

A Wall Is an Absolute Necessity

Written by Walker Wildmon

For decades, America’s southern border has been virtually non-existent. On a map, one would be able to easily identify the border between the United States of America and Mexico. But having an agreed upon border and enforcing that border are two different discussions. The problem that America has faced is that in most places there is no physical barrier to stop or hinder illegal border crossings.

What has this led to? It has led to millions of illegal border crossings over the past few decades.… Continue Reading

How Compassionate Is the Democrats’ Open-Borders Policy?

Written by David Limbaugh

People are having fun lampooning Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s selective exploitation of Scripture to support the Democrats’ advocacy of open borders, but let’s not allow this mirth to distract us from larger questions.

The incoming congresswoman tweeted: “Joy to the World! Merry Christmas everyone — here’s to a holiday filled with happiness, family, and love for all people. (Including refugee babies in mangers + their parents.)”

Let’s put aside that Ocasio-Cortez is conflating the Nativity story described in Luke’s Gospel, in which Mary and Joseph went to Bethlehem to register for the Roman census, with Matthew’s description of the couple’s fleeing to Egypt to protect Jesus from King Herod’s decree to murder every boy age 2 or younger in Bethlehem.… Continue Reading
