Border Security

What Pundits Get Wrong About The Border Security Fight

Mollie Hemingway, The Federalist

Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) signaled that Senate Republicans have no willingness to fight and no serious plan to achieve border security. Should they do nothing, Trump’s case for viewing the situation there as an emergency requiring his action would be seriously strengthened. His case that there is something seriously broken with Congress would also be strengthened. To that extent, assuming the White House doesn’t completely muck up the next three weeks, it is wise for pundits to consider what the next three weeks hold before taking their anti-Trump victory laps.

Trump Clips Pelosi’s Wings

Can you imagine the late President George H.W. Bush, former President George W. Bush, the late John McCain or failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney sending that letter to Nancy Pelosi? What conservatives of all stripes having been waiting for for decades is a leader who will fight the Uniparty consensus in Washington, and Donald Trump has proven to be that leader.

Border security is a fight we must not lose

Rep. Ralph Norman, Washington Examiner

Congress has a real opportunity to come together and address the challenges at our border. We do this by implementing sound policies that discourage illegal immigration such as ending catch-and-release, ending chain migration, and building a wall. At what point do politicians agree that we need change and that we need it now? I am absolutely dismayed that the sovereignty of our nation has become the subject of political theater. This is a fight for our country, and this is a fight I am willing to keep up as long as I am in Washington.

Pelosi, Schumer have a border-security problem with the American people

Charles Hurt, Washington Times

During his winning address from the Oval Office, Mr. Trump batted away hysterical claims that securing the border is somehow “immoral.” Mr. Trump ticked off the number of criminal illegal aliens arrested for violent crimes. He listed the number of Americans who will die overdosing on drugs pouring across the broken border. And he highlighted some of the more despicable murders and crimes carried out against American citizens in recent months. Indeed, the problem Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have is not with Donald Trump. It is with the American people.

Mining CSPAN for Democrat Impeachment Gold

To put the Democrats’ hypocrisy on what is and is not an impeachable offense in context, our friend Ben Weingarten compared comments made by Rep. Jerold Nadler following the release of the sentencing memorandum for the president’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, with what Nadler said during the Bill Clinton impeachment.

The Democrats’ Delusions Drive The Trump Impeachment Narrative

Democrats have convinced themselves that Donald Trump’s election was fraud, not a revolution against the Leftwing establishment consensus in Washington. So, while the narrative has shifted from Russian collusion to real or imagined campaign finance violations, the underlying concept that Donald Trump was “fraudulently” elected President hasn’t shifted at all.

Mark Meadows For White House Chief Of Staff

The most important job President Trump’s next Chief of Staff has is not making the trains run on time – it is making the trains deliver on President Trump’s agenda to ensure his reelection. Priebus and Kelly both failed in that important part of the job, Mark Meadows is the only name that has surfaced who can deliver on it in the face of a hostile Nancy Pelosi-led Congress.

Call Congress Tell Them No Amnesty, No Cheap Immigrant Labor

Defeating Ryan’s amnesty bill may not be easy, because, Ryan has promised to "lean into" rounding up the votes. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative to demand he or she vote NO on Ryan’s amnesty bill when it comes to the Floor today.

Trump Flips Immigration Hot Potato Back To Congress

In an act of amazing political jujitsu, President Trump has defused the phony family separation crisis that the Left and their allies in the media and the cheap labor wing of the business community ginned-up to help them ram a Republican majority-destroying amnesty bill through Congress.

A No-Win Confrontation

William Murchison, The American Spectator

Deep down, most Republicans and Democrats surely take aboard seemingly opposed considerations. They just can’t say so, being obliged by the politics of the moment to tear out each other’s throats. Where, then, does this thing go — this thing that isn’t about children ripped from parents’ arms but is about, in a large and formless way, human destiny, and what kind of country we hope to be 50 years hence. There are no winners in this cause at present.

The Looming Amnesty Disaster For Republicans

Speaker Ryan has put in motion an amnesty vote that is bad news for those who prioritize national sovereignty and border security. Members either will have to vote on the discharge petition’s series of amnesty bills or, absent that, Ryan’s consensus proposal, which is likely to be amnesty-lite with negligible border security.

Should Conservatives Thank Mitch McConnell For Doing His Job?

The President’s call for Border Security legislation was not on Mitch McConnell’s list of planned items to complete during the work days recovered by cancelling the August recess. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Mitch McConnell today to demand that the border wall and border security be part of the Senate’s agenda during its August session.

Yes, The Border Wall Is Being Built

Construction started Friday at Border Field State Park in San Diego. The old wall was only 10 feet high, the new wall will stand between 18 and 30 feet tall, include an “anti-climbing” plate and replace over 14 miles of improvised border fencing built in the 1990s out of scrap metal and repurposed steel plates.

One Week To Stop Establishment GOP Amnesty Bill

Our sources on Capitol Hill have alerted us that the House GOP Conference is having a meeting on immigration “reform” and RINO Rep. Jeff Denham’s discharge petition next Thursday, June 7.  The RINO “leaders” of the House, Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and Majority Whip Steve Scalise are hoping to work out an amnesty deal by that time.

Paul Ryan’s Parting Gift To America: Amnesty For Illegal Aliens

Here is the list of cosponsors of of Speaker Ryan's “Queen of the Hill” resolution. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) we urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Representative today to urge them to not to sign on to H.Res. 774 and to oppose any bill that grants amnesty to illegal aliens.

Military Not Enough: Conservatives Want Congressional Action on Border Security

A new FedUp PAC poll found that 90% of those responding agreed that “Congress should pass legislation to secure the border and send home the illegal aliens already here.”
