SCOTUS Endorses Trump Immigration Hardline… Again

Putting aside the debate over bogus asylum admissions at our front door, with the recent Supreme Court rulings supporting President Trump’s policies, shouldn’t there be a comprehensive effort to empower and direct ICE to begin deporting as many of these people as possible?

The Paul Ryan Border Disaster Forces Trump Veto

Keeping the focus of his veto message on the facts of the situation on the border was probably the wisest course for the President, but let’s be brutally honest; the reason President Trump was put in this situation was because of the abject failure, or perhaps outright treachery of former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan.

12 Republican Senators Vote To Maintain Disastrous Status Quo On Southern Border

The twelve Republicans who joined the Democrats and voted to disapprove President Trump's declaration of an emergency on our southern border represent a cross section of the fractured and out-of-touch Capitol Hill Republican Party’s coalition of virtue signaling windbags, constitutional nincompoops and globalist establishment tools.

We Stand With Tucker Carlson: Never Bow To Leftist Attempts At Censorship

Tucker Carlson is absolutely right, what the Left’s outrage machine is about is power, and controlling what you see, hear and eventually what you think. And the only way to keep that power from them is to never bow to them.

HR 1 – The Democrat Plan To Turn America Into California

Step 1 in the Democrats’ plan for what some wags have called the “Californication” of America has now passed the US House of Representatives on a party line vote. HR 1 is so bad that not even the usual RINOs would vote for it, so that gives you some flavor of what a disaster for constitutional liberty the bill would be if it became law.

Yes, The Southern Border Is At The Breaking Point

You know things are bad when the New York Times runs an article with the headline, “Border at ‘Breaking Point’ as More than 76,000 Unauthorized Migrants Cross in a Month.” We could quibble and point out they are illegal aliens, not “unauthorized migrants,” but why argue details when your enemies are finally helping you by telling the truth for a change?

Why a worthless GOP Senate is worth preserving -- for now

Ralph Z. Hallow, Washington Times

McConnell and the other anti-emergency powers Republicans would have a good case if Mr. Trump were conducting an imperial presidency the way his predecessors in both parties did, going back to former President Lyndon Barnes Johnson. But Mr. Trump instead has had to face Democrat-light GOP leadership in both chambers. The failure of Republicans to understand the levers of power available to them and to use them for necessary ends — like the southern border wall — is tantamount to felonious negligence. It is also typically Republican.

Say It Ain’t So Rand, Say It Ain’t So

We think Senator Paul came to the conclusion to oppose President Trump's declaration of an emergency on our southern border without reading the entire Constitution. Otherwise he would recognize that Article II and Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution provide that the President has a constitutional duty to defend the borders and sovereignty of the United States that congressional dereliction cannot frustrate.

GOP Senator Thom Tillis Flakes On Border Emergency

We urge CHQ readers and friends to call Senator Thom Tillis and other Republican Senators and Representatives TODAY. The toll-free Capitol Switchboard is (1-866-220-0044) tell them there IS a national emergency on our southern border, and that under Article II and Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution the President has the authority and duty to declare an emergency on our southern border.

Where Are The House GOP Leaders On The Border Wall?

Democrats will vote today on a resolution disapproving Trump’s Declaration of a National Emergency at the southern border, but so far House Republican “leaders” have mounted no serious or even visible counterattack to the sustained battering Trump has received at the hands of Democrat Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the #NeverTrump foreign policy establishment.

Democrats Move To Disapprove Trump Wall Emergency

House Democrats plan to file a resolution today seeking to block President Trump's emergency declaration aimed at securing funds for building a border wall.  A vote by the full House is expected in mid-March. If the House passes the resolution, then the GOP-controlled Senate would be required by law to take it up.

Yes, There Is A National Emergency On Our Southern Border

Yes, we have a national emergency on our southern border when illegal aliens kill thousands of Americans every year and in southern Arizona’s Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument, nearly half of all trails and sites are completely closed to the public due to high levels of illegal immigration and smuggling activities.

McCarthy-McConnell Republicans betrayed Trump, killed the wall

Ralph Z. Hallow, Washington Times

Despite Mr. Trump’s efforts to win them over, those same Republicans stood by and watched the Pelosi-Schumer Democrats insert a provision that turned the whole border-security part of the bill into a gigantic poison pill, then gave Mr. Trump no choice but to sign it or get blamed for another government shutdown. By the time it gets to the Supreme Court, you’ll be asked to press 1 for Spanish, 2 for English. (Let us all stipulate our love of Spanish and Hispanics and our abhorrence of disunifying bilingualism.)

President Trump And Texas Governor Greg Abbott Can Use The Constitution To Build The Wall

Article IV, Section 4 of the Constitution provides that the United States shall protect each state against invasion and domestic violence. With 369,000 illegal aliens arrested along the Texas – Mexico border last year and over 189,000 crimnal aliens arrested in Texas during the past decade Gov. Abbott has a textbook case for a request for assistance to repell the invaison and violence.

A Fake Border Security Bill

The worst parts of this bill are those elements that undermine the case for the declaration of an emergency at the border. That is the only way the Wall is going to get built, because it is clear that President Trump is not going to get any help from Capitol Hill’s Republican “leadership” and if the Wall is going to be built it will be done only through executive action.

Trump Weighing All Options For Wall Funding

It is clear that Capitol Hill’s establishment  Republicans have once again let down President Trump and the GOP’s conservative – populist base. The President is now weighing "alternative options" for building a border wall. It would be great if the Capitol Hill GOP would fight for the Wall, but if they won't President Trump should build it without them.

Congress Must #ReadTheDeal Before Voting

A 14-day continuing resolution would allow the House to go on their scheduled district work period and return to D.C. with a full week to work through amendments that will be needed by the Senate and White House to get the bill passed and signed into law.

Capitol Hill GOP Caves On Border Wall Deal

President Trump may be on to the Republicans’ lack of fire in the belly for the Wall when he panned the deal yesterday during a cabinet meeting and said, “I’m adding things to it.” It is clear to us where the problem lies in getting the Wall funded and built – with Capitol Hill Republicans where it has always been.

Trump Tweets On The Wall, Is Congress Listening?

President Trump may be on to the Conference Committee Republicans lack of fire in the belly for the Wall when he tweeted on Wednesday, “If the committee of Republicans and Democrats now meeting on Border Security is not discussing or contemplating a Wall or Physical Barrier, they are Wasting their time!”

New Ear To The Ground Poll: Wall Is Make Or Break For Trump And GOP

Trump voters gave him a 6.71 out of 7 today – but would score him 3.82 if he fails to secure border security funds, a drop of 43 percent. While his voters are still with him today, it appears the President better build the wall or his support will significantly suffer.
