Trump To Issue Orders To Stop Phony Asylum Claims

We have word from the White House that, perhaps as early as today, President Trump will take action to ensure asylum is not a free pass to cross our borders illegally. We applaud President Trump’s decision to use the authorities granted to him by the Immigration and Nationality Act to end the gaming of our dysfunctional immigration system.

When Laws Aren’t Enforced, Anarchy Follows

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

What makes citizens obey the law is not always their sterling character. Instead, fear of punishment — the shame of arrest, fines, or imprisonment — more often makes us comply with laws. Law enforcement is not just a way to deal with individual violators but also a way to remind society at large that there can be no civilization without legality. Supposedly high-minded ends are seen as justifying unlawful means. Helping undocumented immigrants evade the law, stopping the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh, or otherwise thwarting Trump all warrant special immunity. The problem with ignoring laws is that it is contagious — and can boomerang.

Trump: Military Can Use Force At Border

President Donald Trump said yesterday the military will respond with force to anyone in the invading migrant “caravans” who attacks soldiers with rocks or other objects. "They want to throw rocks at our military, our military fights back," Trump said during a White House press conference about immigration.

Meet Them With Tanks?

For the vast majority of our country’s history the military didn’t do its work overseas – its number one job was to defend the United States and its borders, at the border. It is a fantasy of the Cold War era that all the threats to our national sovereignty can be stopped by strategic bombers and nuclear missiles, as opposed to soldiers on patrol at our borders.

As Caravan Approaches, Quit Lying about Immigration

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

One of the Big Lies about immigration is that Democrats, liberals, progressives... really want secure borders. It's just the wall that bothers them. Maybe, just maybe, if we're extremely lucky, this caravan will backfire sufficiently with the public to be blamed for the Republicans holding the House. In that extraordinarily fortuitous case — it could take divine intervention — Congress should move swiftly on new immigration legislation overdue by decades. Of course, we're a nation of immigrants — legal ones.

The caravan is an attack on America -- Stop the caravan now

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

This caravan attack is the right place to draw the line and say “no more.” House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., is right. Congress should come back and pass the laws that would enable Americans to re-establish the rule of law at the border and protect our country with dignity and authority. President Trump is right. Stop the caravan now. If you want to defend America, let your House member and senators know how you feel.

Immigration Puts Trump’s Legacy at Risk

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Democrats routinely win 70 to 90 percent of the votes of people whose trace their ancestry to Asia, Africa and Latin America. Not without reason, Democrats believe that if they can change the composition of the American electorate, they can control America forever. If Donald Trump was elected on any one issue, it was immigration and his promises to secure the border, build the wall and halt the invasion. How he deals with the impending crisis of the migrant caravan may affect both the fate of his party in November and his presidency in 2020.

What The MSM Doesn’t Get About Trump's Support

What the establishment media doesn’t seem to comprehend is that Donald Trump’s supporters, conservative, populist voters, not just white Evangelical Christians, stick with him because they want results, and Trump, despite his personal foibles is delivering them.

The Politicians Who Killed Mollie Tibbetts

Mollie Tibbetts was killed so that somebody in Iowa could have cheap labor, and she was killed so that members of the Business Roundtable and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce could hit this quarter’s earnings target, and most shamefully, she was killed so that virtue signaling liberal politicians could get reelected.

The Willy Horton Moment In The Pennsylvania Senate Race

Our suggestion is that Congressman Barletta take Mayor Kenny and Senator Casey's support for "sanctuary" cities as the “Willy Horton moment” in the campaign and pound Senator Casey and other Democrats for their support of sanctuary cities and the rapes, murders, drugs and other disastrous effects they have on the citizens who must suffer under their misrule.

Should We Invade Mexico?

Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

No, we should not invade Mexico. There are no good military options, and none are necessary or wise today, but we may eventually have to choose between bad options. Mexico is failing more and more every day. We are not yet at the point of a military solution, but anyone who says that day can never come is lying to himself and to you. We need a wall, but more than that, we need the commitment to American security and sovereignty that a wall would physically represent.

Democrats Have Already Started The Second Civil War

The FBI defines domestic terrorism as events that appear intended to "intimidate or coerce a civilian population" or "influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion." If that is not what the Left has been engaged in with increasing ferocity, especially over the past two weeks, then “intimidation and coercion” have lost their meaning.

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.

Insist on E-Verify

The Editors, National Review

The Trump administration has been hesitant to put E-Verify front and center. But, as we’ve seen over the last few weeks at the border, once illegal immigrants are in the country, even if they have just arrived, it’s a significant challenge to remove them. E-Verify would serve as a deterrent and diminish the illegal population without the government having to directly remove anyone (although, obviously, deportation is a completely legitimate tool of enforcement).

The Left’s Next Step Is Open Violence Against Conservatives

Unless Democrats and the cultural and political leadership of the Left come out firmly against mob violence this dangerous situation is only going to escalate. A good start would be a congressional censure of Rep. Waters, but unambiguous statements from Left-leaning cultural and media leaders, like The Washington Post, that political violence is not to be tolerated are also needed.

Democracy requires borders

Editors, Washington Examiner

Without borders and border enforcement, there is no clear definition of the polity. Democracy cannot exist without a clearly defined polity. That’s why the European project of replacing nation-states with a continent-wide super-state, with porous borders both internally and externally, has been so undemocratic. Elites are fine with a shifting populous, because the public aren’t “us” in an important sense. The elite tribe, spanning borders, is their “us” that makes the rules.

Has the West the Will to Survive?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The conquest and colonization of the New World and the creation of the United States and its rise to world power required acts of aggression and war of which many among our elites are ashamed. They exhibit their guilt by tearing down the statues of the men who perpetrated the "crimes" that created America. But of these elites, it may be fairly said: they could never have built a nation like ours.
