It replaced existing wall rather than extending the coverage.A Customs and Border Protection agent told CNN that the wall was newly installed and had been set in concrete that had not yet hardened. The border wall collapsed about midday Wednesday and landed on a row of trees, according to the police in Mexicali, a town on the Mexico-California ...

Post Date: 2020-01-20 08:12:21 by IbJensen
Latin American migrants eager to enter the United States but held in Mexico are praying for President Trumps election defeat in 2020, believing that a Democratic president will open the borders again. I want Trump out, said Honduran Katherine Cabrera, who is being held in Tapachula, Mexico, with her baby. Once Trump is defeated, and the Democrats take over, things are going to get better, added El Salvadoran Brenda Ramos. The comments from Ramos and Cabrera and others were included in a Center for Immigration Studies border report on the attitudes held by migrants under the U.S.-Mexico initiative to stop unchecked illegal immigration. The report found ...
Census Bureau seeks state data, including citizenship info
Post Date: 2019-10-14 16:41:35 by misterwhite
The U.S. Census Bureau is asking states for drivers license records that typically include citizenship data and has made a new request for information on recipients of government assistance, alarming some civil rights advocates. The two approaches, documented by The Associated Press, come amid President Donald Trumps efforts to make citizenship a key aspect of federal information-gathering in the run-up to the 2020 Census, despite this years U.S. Supreme Court ruling that a specific citizenship question cant be included in the 2020 Census questionnaire. Civil rights advocates worry that the wider net being cast by the Trump administration for such information could ...
The Coverup of President John F. Kennedy’s Assassination Is Wearing Thin
Post Date: 2019-09-25 07:18:32 by Deckard
Here is a several years old documentary of 35 minutes summarizing the powerful evidence that the Warren Commission Report on the assassination of President John F. Kennedy is a cover-up. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-l23ec-4mc All available evidence points to the CIA and the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, with the cooperation of the Secret Service, as the murderers of President Kennedy. Fifty-six years after the murder of President Kennedy, the US government still refuses to release the documents that would prove what really happened. Clearly, the truth is being hidden. As James Jesus Angleton, the head of CIA Counterintelligence told me, when the CIA does a black ops ...
*Yawn* Another seventy miles of border wall
Post Date: 2019-09-24 05:08:49 by Tooconservative
Despite the mainstream media continuing to insist that the President isnt building any new border walls, sections of new or vastly improved barrier systems continue to appear as if by magic. And last week these efforts appeared to kick things up another gear, though you probably didnt hear about it on most cable news outlets. The Department of the Interior is transferring more than 500 acres of federal land to the Department of the Army. The land will be used to begin construction on another 70 miles of border wall, so make room for the construction brigades, folks.

"Remain in Mexico" immigration hearings begin in tents at border
Post Date: 2019-09-15 16:10:23 by Tooconservative
Tents set up in Laredo and Brownsville, Texas for the purpose of holding immigration hearings under the Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP), also known as the Remain in Mexico program, are opening. The first to open was in Laredo Wednesday and the one in Brownsville opened Thursday. You may remember back in July I wrote about the virtual immigration courtrooms being set up to allow immigration judges to preside in hearings via video conferencing. This is a way to ease the backlog of cases at the border. For example, immigration judges in San Antonio can hold hearings with migrants seeking asylum that were sent back to Mexico to await their turn before a judge. They go to Laredo ...

Post Date: 2019-09-13 13:22:00 by WWG1WWA
Build the wall" became the unofficial rallying cry of then-candidate Donald Trumps 2016 campaign. Three years later, amid a series of legal and political setbacks that have raised questions about the project's future, the Trump administration is making a renewed effort to show voters the U.S.-Mexico border wall remains a top priority touting recent construction and vowing to pick up the pace going into 2020. BORDER APPREHENSIONS PLUNGE AS TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAILS MEXICO PACT The purchase of critical strips of private land has cleared the way, they argue, for a new phase. The plan, officials told reporters at a briefing this week, is to construct upwards of 450 ...
'Way Too Far To The Left': Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary Skewers Democrats On Immigration
Post Date: 2019-09-12 13:18:18 by Tooconservative
Former Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson cautioned Democrats on pivoting too far to the left on immigration issues, warning that it could cost them in the 2020 election. Look, most Americans want to be fair and treated in a humane way, those who have migrated here who are desperate, who are fleeing really bad conditions
We want to take care of the Dreamers, but Americans also want secure borders. They want to get control of illegal migration, Johnson, who served as DHS secretary during the Obama administration, said Wednesday on MSNBCs Morning Joe. So when we talk about deprioritizing the deportation of those apprehended at the border or ...
Don’t look now, but there’s more border wall news
Post Date: 2019-09-12 12:27:53 by Tooconservative
Im sure youve seen the gloating headlines about border wall construction in the media from liberal outlets recently. A few days ago, Axios crowed that not a single mile has been built where no barrier existed before. Last week the WaPo declared that Trumps border wall is now a monument to his failure. So I guess that about wraps it up, eh? No wall for you, Mr. President. Except that doesnt seem to be the case. In fact, construction is gearing up in multiple locations already. More on this from the Associated Press. South of Yuma, Arizona, the tall brown bollards rising against a cloudless desert sky will replace much shorter barriers that ...
Supreme Court Slaps Down Rogue Ninth Circuit Judge and Gives President Trump a Huge Win On Asylum
Post Date: 2019-09-12 00:24:27 by Tooconservative
The matter be close to coming to a head on the issue of the new asylum rules promulgated by the Department of Justice. Basically, they say that if you come to the US seeking asylum and you have transited any other nation or nations en route that you must have applied for asylum in at least one of them and been turned down. This should have been a fairly uncontroversial rule but because OrangeManBad groups with no apparent standing went to a federal judge, Jon Tigar, who is naturally situated in San Francisco. Tigar his so hostile to the administration that he gained the distinction of having President Trump label him an Obama judge. This caused the Lido deck cruise bunch to have a cow and ...
Trump-shaped 9th Circuit hands White House major win on asylum policy
Post Date: 2019-09-11 17:30:42 by WWG1WWA
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals long a liberal bastion that has been aggressively reshaped into a more moderate court by the Trump administration handed the president a major win late Monday, lifting a nationwide injunction on his asylum policy. Earlier in the day, Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar in California had reinstated a nationwide halt on the Trump administration's plan to prevent most migrants from seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border, if they first crossed through another country on the way. But in an administrative order first obtained by Politico, the 9th Circuit rolled Tigar's ruling right back, saying that for now it should only apply ...
Mexico now busing asylum seekers to their southern border
Post Date: 2019-08-24 02:39:47 by Tooconservative
Things seem to be heating up south of the border, and Im not talking about a Taco Bell advertisement. The Remain in Mexico policy agreed to by the Mexican government is still in effect, but nobody really specified exactly where in Mexico asylum seekers were supposed to wait. This week the Mexican government took matters into their own hands, at least in some cases. They began packing up some of the migrants on buses and sending them down near the Guatemalan border. (NY Post) Mexico is sending some of the 30,000 Central American migrants vying for asylum in the United States on 750-mile bus rides all the way back to southern Mexico, officials said. The ...
Trump May Issue Exec Order Ending Citizenship For Babies Of Illegal Immigrants: Calls It ‘Frankly Ridiculous’
Post Date: 2019-08-22 11:07:24 by Tooconservative
On Wednesday, President Trump stated that he is thinking of issuing an executive order that would prevent the children born on American soil to illegal immigrants from gaining automatic American citizenship, calling so-called birthright citizenship frankly ridiculous. Trump told reporters, Birthright citizenship where you have a baby in our land, walk over the border, have a baby, congratulations the baby is now a U.S. citizen. Were looking at it very, very seriously. When he was apprised that one reporter knew of Trumps intent to go forward with an executive order, which he had mentioned in 2018, he responded, I ...
Trump administration releases new 'public charge' rule making it easier to reject immigrants
Post Date: 2019-08-13 11:13:00 by Tooconservative
The Trump administration on Monday released the final version of a controversial rule that dramatically increases the government's ability to reject green cards for people who are deemed likely to depend on government aid such as food stamps, housing assistance and Medicaid. The new "public charge" rule would link a subject's immigration status to their income and their use of certain public programs. Published in the Federal Register, the rule will officially be released Wednesday and go into effect 60 days later. Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, announced the rule at a press briefing at the White House on Monday ...

Post Date: 2019-08-05 07:07:04 by A K A Stone
Mexico on Sunday threatened to take legal action against the United States for failing to protect its citizens after this weekend's mass shooting in the border city of El Paso. Of the 20 people gunned down at a Walmart at the Cielo Vista Mall, at least seven were Mexican citizens, and Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard promised Mexico City will act. In a statement, the Foreign Ministry called the attack in El Paso a "terrorist act against innocent Mexicans." Ebrard called Saturday's shooting an act of barbarism.

Pentagon testing mass surveillance balloons across the US
Post Date: 2019-08-02 09:04:55 by Willie Green
The US military is conducting wide area surveillance tests across six midwest states using experimental high-altitude balloons, documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reveal. Up to 25 unmanned solar-powered balloons are being launched from rural South Dakota and drifting 250 miles through an area spanning portions of Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Missouri, before concluding in central Illinois. Travelling in the stratosphere at altitudes of up to 65,000ft, the balloons are intended to provide a persistent surveillance system to locate and deter narcotic trafficking and homeland security threats, according to a filing made on behalf of the Sierra Nevada ...
Attorney General William Barr Puts Additional Limits On Asylum Claims [no more 'violent gangs' lies]
Post Date: 2019-07-30 05:21:03 by Tooconservative
Attorney General William Barr ruled Monday that being a member of a family harassed by gangs is not enough to qualify for asylum. No asylum for you, lying line-jumpers! In a ruling that will likely block a large number of immigrants from lodging successful asylum claims moving forward, Barr overturned a previous decision made by Board of Immigration Appeals, which found that being a member of family targeted by gangs or other criminal organizations could qualify them as a particular social group worthy of U.S. asylum. The White Houses top lawyer argued that the decision by the Board of Immigration Appeals was too broad, making it so that virtually every ...
In a Mexican border city, Trump’s plan to discourage migrants appears to be working as some give up on asylum
Post Date: 2019-07-28 10:01:44 by Tooconservative
NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico It was the first phone call to his family back in Honduras since crossing the Texas-Mexico border, and Olvin Alexander Buezo had bad news. He wasnt in the United States as expected. His 7-year-old son would not be attending elementary school this fall in Foley, Alabama. There would be no good-paying U.S. job to finance the $6,000 debt he incurred to pay their smuggler. I already told [my uncle] to sell everything, Buezo said during the brief but somber phone call to his wife on Tuesday. Their small farm less than three acres would have to go. Theres no other way, he said. The important thing is ...
Trump Breaks Guatamala: Central American Nation Reverses Course On Asylum Agreement
Post Date: 2019-07-27 03:06:52 by Tooconservative
President Donald Trump said on Friday that his administration has reached an agreement with Guatemala to restrict asylum application to the United States from nations south of the U.S. border. "The so-called 'safe third country' agreement would require migrants, including Salvadorans and Hondurans, who cross into Guatemala on their way to the U.S. to apply for protections in Guatemala instead of at the U.S. border," The Associated Press reported. "It could potentially ease the crush of migrants overwhelming the U.S. immigration system and hand Trump a concession he could herald as a win." .@realDonaldTrump: The United States and Guatemala have reached an ...
Surprise! Illegal immigration deeply unpopular with voters … in Mexico
Post Date: 2019-07-17 11:58:45 by Tooconservative
Nearly two-thirds of voters consider illegal immigrants a burden. Fifty-five percent of them want all illegal immigrants kicked out of the country. Is this a poll from border states, or states won by Donald Trump in 2016? Actually, these numbers come from a survey conducted by the Washington Post and Reforma, a leading daily in Mexico. Donald Trump may not be popular in Mexico, but his immigration policy seems to be: Mexicans are deeply frustrated with immigrants after a year of heightened migration from Central America through the country, according to a survey conducted by The Washington Post and Mexicos Reforma newspaper.

Just heard Rush mention at tail end of his show that additional troops were being sent to the border to " help " immigrants. Rush questioned : " What happened to stopping them from entering the country ? " , and " What happened to transporting them to Sanctuary Cities ? ". Rush then commented " What is going on ? " Damn good questions !!!! I was slightly distracted, on phone with one of my Doctors getting a prescription refilled. Rush sounded upset. So am I. In spite of Trumps bluster about stopping the invasion, it seems that is all bullshite !! Maybe someone here can report something more encouraging.
