Border Rancher: “We’ve Found Prayer Rugs Out Here”

Washington Examiner: R anchers and farmers near the U.S.-Mexico border have been finding prayer rugs on their properties in recent months, according to one rancher who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation by cartels who move the individuals. The mats are pieces of carpet that those of the Muslim faith kneel on as they worship. “There’s a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico,” the rancher said. “People, the general public, just don’t get the terrorist threats of that. That’s...

The Winner Of The Shutdown? Brandon Judd, Border Patrol Union President

WASHINGTON (AP) — Brandon Judd, president of the union that represents thousands of border patrol agents, has flipped the axiom that there are no winners in a government shutdown. His proximity to President Donald Trump has elevated the union leader’s profile while burnishing the image of the U.S. Border Patrol, a backwater in prior administrations when compared to other federal law enforcement agencies like the FBI and Secret Service. At the same time, Judd, president of the National Border ...

DACA recipients being allowed to travel outside U.S. was stopped by Trump. Now they want it back

His mother was dying and he was desperate. So Dario Guerrero Meneses took her to Mexico for an experimental treatment. Guerrero, a DACA recipient, had applied for permission to leave the U.S., but, eager to save his mother, didn’t wait for the answer. That move cost the Long Beach resident, then a student at Harvard University, the immigration status that gave him temporary relief from the fear of deportation. The government figured he self-deported. Guerrero was eventually allowed back into the...

Border Patrol union deletes 2012 anti-border wall web page that argued walls waste taxpayer money

A union that represents agents for the U.S. Border Patrol deleted a 2012 page from their website that said building walls or fences along the U.S./Mexico border to stop desperate migrants would be “wasting taxpayer money.” VICE's Motherboard reports that the deleted web page was originally posted in 2012. It carried an argument against walls like the one Trump's pushing today, and said border barriers don’t tackle migration's root causes, and may encourage more migrants to enter the U.S. thro...

There Is a Crisis at the Border. It’s Not the One Trump Is Describing

President Trump stood on the edge of the Rio Grande in McAllen, Texas, on Thursday and looked at Border Patrol vehicles, bales of marijuana seized from smugglers and a Border Patrol helicopter flying over the water with agents hanging out the open doors. “They need a barrier. They need a wall,” he said. When a…

Full transcript of Donald Trump's Oval Office address on border security

A transcript of President Donald Trump's Tuesday night address about security along the U.S. southern border, as provided by the White House: My fellow Americans: Tonight, I am speaking to you because there is a growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border.

Trump Pretended To Care About Sexual Assault In His Address — For The First Time Ever

Speaking to the nation from the Oval Office on Tuesday night, President Donald Trump scraped up what little ability he has to appear as a humanitarian, all with the single goal of getting more people on the side of his nonsensical, ineffective border wall.But speaking in a reasonable voice and citing facts didn't make him any less credible in his first televised Oval Office address. The address was a feast for the fact-checkers, and it's become more and more obvious that he's manufacturing a cr...

Blue states rank better than red ones: How’d your state fare in 14 national rankings?

Blue states were better than red states in 2018. That’s what my trusty spreadsheet tells me when I compiled a selection of state-by-state rankings that serve our national thirst to debate who’s No. 1 and who’s dead last. My study used 14 state-by-state rankings published last year on various quality-of-life subjects.  My “red” states were those who voted for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election; “blue” states were the ones that didn’t go for Trump. The blue states scored better two ways —...

The reality on the border: How much will a wall really help?

By COLLEEN LONG WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says there is a security crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border that can be addressed only by spending $5.7 billion on a wall. Democrats have flatly refused to agree to the funding. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called the wall an “immorality.” Trump will address the nation Tuesday to make the case for the wall, which he says would solve many of the issues at the border because it would deter people from trying to come to the United States. But the deba...

The ACLU made the Border Patrol reveal its terrifying legal theories

After four years of Freedom of Information Act litigation, the ACLU has prevailed and forced the Customs and Border Patrol to release 1,000 pages' worth of training documents in which new agents learn when they can stop people and what they can do after they stop them. The documents are a window into the CBP's legal gamesmanship, in which the flimsiest of pretenses are spun into legal excuses to stop, search, question and detain people within 100 miles of the US border and in any city with ...

Trump: I’m Not Flip-Flopping!!! 100 Percent Concrete Wall! Mostly.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Despite public equivocations by three confidants, President Donald Trump is insisting he wants to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. “An all concrete Wall was NEVER ABANDONED,” tweeted Trump, whose demand for congressional funding to construct one has caused a budgetary standoff. “Some areas will be all concrete but the experts at Border Patrol prefer a Wall that is see through (thereby making it possible to see what is happening on both sides).” Trump’s comments on M...

Is it news that Trump's wall is not a wall made out of concrete?

Here's what you missed this weekend: Trump tries to respond to dead children at the border, Kelly says the 'wall' won't be a real wall at all, and truculent truck drivers block Tesla Superchargers

President Donald Trump, Republicans, and administration officials have responded to a second December death of a migrant child in US custody. In an interview, outgoing White House chief of staff John Kelly said Trump's "Wall" won't actually be a wall. Business Insider spoke to truck drivers pointedly blocking Tesla Superchargers as multiple reports of the trend have surfaced online. It was the weekend before New Year's Day 2019, but 2018's news didn't stop. Following the death of a second mig...

Washington Parses Trump’s Wall Semantics in Search for Compromise

Trump’s demand for a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico actually refers to “steel slats” as well as the technology that U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officers have said they need to intercept the illegal flow of goods and people, according to Kellyanne Conway, a senior White House adviser. “It is a silly semantic argument because people who just want to say ‘wall, wall, wall’ want that to be a four-letter word,” Conway said on “Fox News Sunday,” one of two appearances on a day parts of the fe...

Trump blames Democrats, not his team, for border deaths
