I’m A Legitimate Asylum-Seeker, And I Support Trump’s Border Wall

Mahir Ahmed, The Federalist

Unfortunately, it took me, a legal alien, being personally affected by illegal immigration to look at the data and realize that there is indeed a crisis at the southern border. The crisis is affecting both the American people and those who take the right, legal steps, and wait their turn to come to the United States. Since I filed my case, about 460,000 illegal crossings took place. A wall can significantly lower, if not eliminate, illegal crossings, especially when coupled with recommended, location-specific operational tactics. Most importantly, a wall would save taxpayers money in the long run.

Trump’s Intersectional Weekend

While we don’t buy the idea that all of society is controlled by oppressive intersectional institutions, the Trump team has, from the beginning of his unlikely rise to the Oval Office, recognized that the key elements of a winning political coalition on the Right do intersect, and their nexus is constitutional liberty, especially as protected by the First and Second Amendments.

New Gallup Poll: Government And Immigration Top Voter Concerns

Immigration is the top concern of Republicans. While this highlights the difficulty of finding a bipartisan solution to the issue, it also suggests immigration will be an important election issue for Republicans, and one the president and GOP should use to drive turnout and support for Trump in 2020.

We Need Supply Side Warrior Steve Moore On The Fed Board

We strongly support Stephen Moore for the Fed Board and urge CHQ readers and friends to call their Senators today (the toll-free Capitol Switchboard is 1-866-220-0044) to urge them to vote to confirm Steve Moore when his nomination to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors comes before the Senate.

Mexican Military Now Patrolling North Of The Border, US Sovereignty Violated Repeatedly

While two American soldiers were parked south of the border fence, but north of the Rio Grande riverbed, placing them “appropriately in U.S. territory,” five or six Mexican soldiers approached with FX-05 Xiuhcoatl rifles, ordered them out of their vehicle and disarmed one of the Americans. This is just the latest in more than 500 Mexican military border violations in the past decade.

My Op-Ed In The Hill: Why Ken Cuccinelli should be Trump's choice for DHS

By Richard A Viguerie, CHQ Chairman
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has already expressed opposition to Cuccinelli, who as president of the Senate Conservatives Fund led primary challenges to K Street-controlled, establishment Republicans. McConnell, therefore, may have a grudge, but one not based in Cuccinelli’s fitness for the job.

Mitch McConnell Opposes Nominees Who Agree With President Trump

Mitch McConnell opposes Ken Cuccinelli for Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security precisely because Cuccinelli agrees with Trump, and the last person an establishment Chamber of Commerce-type Republican like Mitch McConnell wants running DHS is someone who actually believes in and will fight for the Trump border security agenda.

Trump's failure to get border wall built becomes 2020 campaign promise anew

Joseph Curl, Washington Times

Last Friday, Donald J. Trump For President Inc., released a new video, just hours before the president boarded a plane to fly to the U.S.-Mexico border to view construction of a portion of a new barrier there. Americans don’t much expect their politicians to follow through on every promise. So they’re likely to go along for the ride again as Mr. Trump pledges to build a border barrier — even though he failed to do so last time he made the promise. Bottom line: It was a winning issue last election, and it might just be a winning issue this time around. And Mr. Trump has known that since the minute he won the White House.

Ken Cuccinelli For Secretary Of Homeland Security

Running the Department of Homeland Security for President Trump, and getting the Trump agenda accomplished will take spine, smarts, media savvy and the ability to think creatively to get the job done. Of all the good names that have surfaced Ken Cuccinelli is the only candidate who checks all those boxes.

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen Out

Now that Kirstjen Nielsen is out we hope the President will finally grasp that personnel is policy and begin appointing senior officials who actually believe in and want to accomplish his agenda, starting with the Department of Homeland Security and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency.

Mr. President Close The Border

More than 100,000 illegal aliens are poised to cross the US border into Texas — a crisis threatening to overwhelm facilities  for housing asylum seekers. There is no question that President Trump has the legal authority to close the border; that has been done by previous presidents with no one questioning that authority.

14 House Republicans Stab America In The Back

Clearly the appropriations clause is not a suicide pact. If 1/3 of a million Red Chinese were poised to cross our southern border the President would have the power to act if Congress dithered because he has the constitutional duty and authority to act as Commander-in-Chief to protect the sovereignty of the United States and the lives and property of its citizens.

The Indispensable Rep. Louie Gohmert

All too often we must ask CHQ readers to call Congress to protest some anti-conservative action by the so-called leaders of the Republican Party. Today we urge CHQ readers and friends to call Rep. Louie Gohmert’s office (1-866-220-0044) to thank him for his steadfast conservative leadership and especially for his successful efforts to gain the release of Sgt. Derrick Miller. (Pictured above Mrs. Renee Miller, mother of Sgt. Derrick Miller and Rep. Louie Gohmert)

Students Love The “Green New Deal” Until They Hear What’s In It

The problem for Democrats is now obvious: Having created their army of brainwashed little climate change monsters, the have to keep moving Left to satisfy their appetite for bigger government, more regulations and more laws and more limits on what we can do, more restrictions on what we can think and say and become, and the “Green New Deal” is just the start.

Conservative Grassroots Send Sen. Roy Blunt A Message About The Wall

Sen. Roy Blunt of Missouri, the fourth-ranking Republican in the Senate, was the only member of GOP leadership to vote for the Democrats' resolution of disapproval intended to block President Trump's emergency declaration. Now the Christian County, Missouri, Republican Central Committee has disinvited Blunt from their annual Lincoln - Trump dinner.

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.

Build the Wall to Save Taxpayers Billions

Betsy McCaughey, The American Spectator

President Trump launched another battle for border wall funding, calling for $8.6 billion in his proposed federal budget for next year. Top Democrats came out swinging, bashing a border wall as “expensive and ineffective.” Truth is, Dems are not leveling with the public about the billions we’re already forced to spend on caring for them. Not to mention the costs of public schooling and healthcare provided free to migrants once they are released into communities. The wall will pay for itself in less than two years. It’s a bargain.

Trump Tackles The Deficit That McCarthy, Ryan And Boehner Ignored

President Trump’s budget is an excellent blueprint for reorganizing government, gaining many efficiencies and it funds the wall and the continued rebuilding of our military. However, it is only as good as the President’s willingness to fight for it by vetoing Democrat deficit spending bills and holding the Capitol Hill GOP’s feet to the fire to sustain those vetoes.
