Big Surprise – Illegal Immigration is on the Rise!

by: Brent Smith

Literally every ill befallen this nation from the Obama regime, the Trump administration has been able to halt, slow or turn back completely.

And one the biggest was and is illegal immigration. Despite being fought tooth and nail by the left and the Deep State right, Trump kept his seemingly unachievable campaign promise and delivered as much of the big, beautiful wall as any president could. He thwarted the flood of illegals sponsored by the left to make Trump look bad, and just wouldn’t take no for an answer.

In other words, he put America and Americans first.

Now that’s about to change and once again, America, it’s citizens and legal immigrants will take a back seat. read more

Hispanics Break for Trump – Pelosi says Build That Wall!

Let’s inject a little levity into the morass of tension that is the 2020 election.

Leave it to the Babylon Bee:

With Hispanics Leaning Republican, Democrats Begin Calling For A Southern Border Wall

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Many historically Democratic counties that are heavily Hispanic went for Trump in the election. Because of this, Democrats are now calling for a wall along the Southern border to keep more Latinos from immigrating to the United States. read more

The Border Barrier Only has to be Funded Once

Scroll Down for Audio Version

Let’s say you own a house. With the house comes a yard and with that comes a lot of various things for the upkeep of the property. Things like a lawn mower, hedge clippers, paint supplies, gas cans, etc.

The problem is you have no where to store them. Consequently they get damaged by weather and people sneak into your yard and steal your stuff – because you don’t a fence.

So you propose to your wife, or whomever resides with you (who knows anymore), to shell out the money to build a lockable shed in the back yard.

Well, your other half isn’t keen on spending the money. You explain that the family can cut it by moving some money around and cutting back.

Instead of listening reasonably to your proposal, your other half, he, she or it, goes on a tirade, exclaiming that taking from one portion of the household budget will hurt the well-being of the family. read more

Podcast – Immigration – Nothing New Under the Sun

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

If you dig deep enough and sometimes far enough back you’ll discover that there really isn’t anything new under the Sun, as the saying goes. It just means that there aren’t really any new ideas. New ideas are just rehashing of something that someone, sometimes hundreds or thousands of years already thought of or suggested or implemented.

So what does this have to do with immigration? Well, because Trump’s new “border czar,” as he’s being called – and I hate that term, is suggesting a lot of “new” and radical stuff, that’s not exactly new.

In fact, President Dwight D. “I Like Ike” Eisenhower did just that beginning exactly 65 years tomorrow. With little more than 1,000 agents, Ike decreased illegal border crossings by 95%. And it can be done again if only we had the courage and will to get it done. read more

The Border Wall Can be Built on the Cheap

from the Washington Examiner:

Company offers to build 234 miles of border wall for $1.4 billion

A U.S. company is offering to build 234 miles of President Trump’s border wall for just $1.4 billion, a fraction of the $8 billion the Trump administration is hoping to use for that project.

Fisher Sand and Gravel Company’s President and CEO Tommy Fisher said the government is overpaying and said that for $4.31 billion, he can build the wall and incorporate paved roads and border technology plus warranty. read more

WND Exclusive – DEMOCRATS’ SEMANTIC ABSURDITY OVER BORDER WALL

by Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

Words mean things. And to Democrats, words are the only thing, which is why they are literally tying themselves in semantic

knots over the southern border.

Image result for semantics

A few weeks ago, McClatchy News wrote, “There’s a strong constituency among Democrats for border barriers. Just don’t call it a concrete wall. While Democrats will not specify what they might propose next, one big clue came from [James] Clyburn [D-S.C.], a close Pelosi ally. Semantics matter, which is why he’s calling enhanced security a ‘smart wall.’” read more

Video Podcast – A Border Cable – Green is the New Red Deal

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

A Texas Republican Congressman, Will Hurd, has an idea to run fiber optic cable from one end of the country to the other, under ground, to detect people crossing our border illegally. This is in lieu of, or instead of a border wall.

Great plan. The cable won’t stop anyone from crossing, but will simply alert border patrol that someone, or group of someones has.

The “Green New Deal” that AOC and others have proposed is nothing more than a new communist manifesto. It’s not Democratic or any other kind of socialism. It’s straight-up communism. And what does their economic program have to do with global warming? Absolutely nothing. read more

Eminent Domain Attorneys Being Hired by Justice Department

from the Daily Caller:

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT IS HIRING LAWYERS TO TAKE ON PROPERTY SEIZURES FOR TRUMP BORDER WALL

In a strong indication the Trump administration is preparing for the next phase of the immigration battle, the Department of Justice is now hiring lawyers to handle border wall litigation in South Texas.

The two attorney positions — which are advertised to pay between $53,062 and $138,790 — are to be based in the southern Texas towns of Brownsville and McAllen. Preferred candidates are to have “at least four (4) years of civil litigation experience in litigation of land condemnation cases, oil and gas disputes, and real estate matters,” according to the posting on USAJobs, adding that knowledge of the Spanish language “is helpful, but not required.” read more

Witless Jim Acosta Makes Trump’s Border Barrier Argument for Him

Congress Already Granted Trump the Power to Build the Wall

from Conservative Review:

Yes, the president has the authority to build the wall

Presidents are free to deploy our troops to 140 countries without congressional authorization and build all sorts of wall and infrastructure in these countries, yet we are told a president can’t take a basic defensive action to repel an invasion of our own country: the construction of a wall twice authorized and even mandated by Congress. In reality, while it would be better for Congress to explicitly fund a new wall, the president is right to leverage the debate by threatening to use power Congress has already delegated to at least begin constructing portions of the wall. Whether we agree with such delegation or not, there is no more appropriate situation in which it should be used than with our own border. read more
