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.”

Democrats Oppose Sending Troops To The Border

Democrats opposing the President’s decision to send troops to the border have figured out the politics of it from the liberal perspective and “think it can help them reach minorities, young people and suburban moderates." Have Republicans figured out how important supporting the President on this is from the conservative perspective?

Trump Places National Guard In Support Role On Southern Border

This is not 2012 or 2006, the situation has changed, and the American people expected that after the 2016 election the southern border would be secured. The President’s actions may take a little strain off the Border Patrol, but they do nothing to fund the wall or stop the catch and release policies that are currently swamping the United States in illegal aliens.

GOP Response To Illegal Alien Caravan Will Decide 2018 Midterms

This is the golden hour for the Republican Party, and their vigor in assisting the President in repelling the pending illegal alien invasion will tell every voter in America who they are and where they stand on preserving American sovereignty and exceptionalism. The illegal alien “caravan” is moving inexorably northward, and the day of reckoning will come when it hits the border.

A 'people without borders' is a people without democracy

Editors, Washington Examiner

A country without borders, Trump says repeatedly, is no country at all. This is true, and it’s important. National democracy is the biggest form that democracy takes in today’s world. In a democratic nation, self-determination includes determining who is part of the nation. If we really believe in the ideas of the Enlightenment, then we have to believe in self-determining, democratic nations. That means we have to believe in immigration control.

Time To Send Troops To The Southern Border

As Commander-in-Chief President Trump can send more troops to the U.S. – Mexico border to protect our sovereignty and repel any invading army. The bully pulpit of Twitter has its place, but now the President should stop tweeting and start using his constitutional power to defend our border.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions Wakes Up

While things are far from perfect at DOJ conservatives can take heart that the Attorney General has forcefully taken on one of the most important challenges facing the Trump presidency and constitutional government; California’s “sanctuary” for illegal aliens policies.

Trump Fulfills Campaign Promise On Extreme Vetting Of Aliens

While Congress dithers on legislation crucial to implementing an effective 21st century immigration and border security regimen, yesterday, President Trump signed a National Security Presidential Memorandum to establish a National Vetting Center to help identify individuals who present a threat to our national security if allowed to enter the country.

Trump’s National Security Strategy: A Welcome Break From Obama And Bush

Neocons, the congressional war party, and the military – industrial complex will no doubt be ready to criticize President Trump’s national security strategy as a retreat from America’s role in the world – but nothing could be further from the truth.

The Uniparty Defeats Roy Moore And Trump Agenda

The game here isn’t electing Republicans – it is “crushing” conservatives and Tea Partiers. What the Uniparty is interested in is maintaining their own power and a Roy Moore victory would have been a serious impediment to their power, but Doug Jones is merely another Democrat to cut a deal with.
