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.

Illegal Immigration, Internment Camps, and Useful Idiots

David Catron, The American Spectator

The Bush family has a famously adversarial relationship with English. It became clear this week that at least one of them is also illiterate where U.S. history and immigration policy are concerned. The WW II Japanese internment camps were indeed “one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history.” It occurred because a Democratic president signed Executive Order 9066, resulting in the illegal incarceration of 110,000 loyal Japanese Americans. This is consistent with that party’s long catalogue of racialist crimes. For Mrs. Bush to conflate that atrocity to the current border situation is utterly irresponsible.

Democrats Have Zero Tolerance For Illegal Immigration Solutions

David Harsanyi, The Federalist

I’m a pretty liberal guy on immigration – open to more asylum seekers, bigger immigration, more temporary workers, etc. But I’m not a huge fan of chaos. And I suspect I’m not alone. It’s neither healthy for the country, nor the people who come here seeking a better life, to be thrown into a system that doesn’t work. Nor is it politically rational, as we increasingly see in Europe. Yet, we have Democrats and activists calling for the elimination of ICE. We have a Democratic Party unwilling to make any compromise on the issue. Sooner or later the situation becomes untenable.

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.

Trump Stands With Euro Resisters Against “Invasion”

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

The population of Africa, right across the Med, is anticipated to climb to 2.5 billion by midcentury. And by 2100, Africa will be home to half of all the people of the planet. If but a tiny fraction of the African and Middle Eastern population decides to cross the Mediterranean to occupy the emptying towns and villages of an aging and dying continent, who and what will stop them? Trump may be on the wrong side politically and emotionally of this issue of separating migrant kids from their parents. But on the mega-issue — the Third World invasion of the West — he is riding the great wave of the future, if the West is to have a future.

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.

Steve Bannon Reminds Us What Trumpism Is All About

Steve Bannon to CNN's Fareed Zakaria: Economic nationalism doesn't care about race, ethnicity, religion. It doesn't care about gender, doesn't care about religion, it doesn't care what your sexual preference is. It cares about if you're a United States citizen.

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.

The Only Thing Worse For Republicans Than John McCain In The Senate

With her radical leftist views on same sex marriage and opposition to the Republican Party’s platform position on abortion, the only thing worse than having John McCain in the Senate would be for Governor Doug Ducey to appoint his liberal wife Cindy to succeed him.

Tennessee Bans Sanctuary Cities Over Establishment GOP’s Limp Wristed Opposition

Tennessee’s establishment Republican Gov. Bill Haslam will allow a bill to prohibit sanctuary cities in the Volunteer State to become law without his signature. And his handpicked successor megamillionaire Randy Boyd is equally weak on illegal immigration having given at least $250,000 to Far Left La Raza affiliated organizations.
