Border Wall Construction Quickens, Work Beginning on Private Land

The Trump administration is kicking into high gear.



The Trump administration is kicking into high gear with building new border walls, fulfilling a Trump campaign promise at long last.

For the last few months, the administration has been rebuilding old and dilapidated segments of the existing border fence, but now it is moving on to construction of new barriers on private land.

Not only has the administration begun enlarging the border system, it is doing so at a much more accelerated pace than previous administrations.

According to the Washington Examiner the administration has cut the time for construction:

Compared to the last wall building effort in 2006 under President George W. Bush, when it took two years to start digging on approved projects, the Trump administration has cut that to 9-11 months, said a senior administration official.

The pace will also grow once more of the Pentagon’s money is diverted to wall construction.

“And once the $3.6 billion in money redirected from the Pentagon lands in the hands of border officials, they expect the construction of 2-3 miles a week will surge,” the paper wrote.

The government also noted that the new construction is not a sham meant merely to help Trump’s re-election:

Trump’s team has focused on those areas, installing a new “border system” that includes the high wall, lighting, special technology to identify crossing attempts, and an access road.

“This isn’t a vanity wall of the president’s. It’s not a vanity wall,” said one official. “This president has listened to the experts, and this president is delivering on what the experts have been asking for, make no mistake,” added the official.

Another source noted, “This isn’t like we’re building in areas just to show progress. We’re building where border patrol said their priorities are.”

Along with replacing the old fencing, the administration has initial plans for 100 miles of new fencing in the Rio Grande Valley.

Trump Deploying ‘Elite Tactical Agents’ To 10 Sanctuary Cities

This will send the Liberals over the cliff!



President Trump is deploying law enforcement tactical units from the southern border as part of a supercharged arrest operation in sanctuary cities across the country.

Specially trained officers are being sent in to boost the enforcement power of local ICE officers.


President Trump is deploying a group of “elite tactical agents” to sanctuary cities across the United States to increase the number of arrests of criminal illegal aliens, a report states.

According to sources who spoke to the New York Times, Trump is sending about 100 agents of the elite U.S. Border Patrol tactical unit known as BORTAC to sanctuary cities such as:

  • Detroit, Michigan
  • Chicago, Illinois
  • New York City, New York
  • Newark, New Jersey
  • San Francisco, California
  • New Orleans, Louisiana
  • Los Angeles, California
  • Atlanta, Georgia
  • Houston, Texas
  • Boston, Massachusetts

The BORTAC agents are expected to help Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents with deportation operations between February and May in an effort to increase arrests of criminal illegal aliens by 35 percent, according to emails read to the Times.

Acting ICE Director Matthew Albence told the Times in a statement:

“As we have noted for years, in jurisdictions where we are not allowed to assume custody of aliens from jails, our officers are forced to make at-large arrests of criminal aliens who have been released into communities,” he said. “When sanctuary cities release these criminals back to the street, it increases the occurrence of preventable crimes, and more importantly, preventable victims.” More

The federal government is being forced to protect sanctuary city’s from the policies of their own elected officials. We need legislation that holds these communities accountable for the crimes committed by those that should have been deported. Charge and arrest anyone that tries to intervene.

Thank you, President Trump. He’s a leader that is not afraid to make the tough call.

BREAKING: Barr Announces “Significant Escalation” Against Left-Wing Sanctuary Cities (Video)



Attorney General Bill Barr announces sweeping new sanctions, ‘significant escalation’ against left-wing sanctuary cities.

“Further, we are reviewing the practices, policies, and laws of other jurisdictions across the country. This includes assessing whether jurisdictions are complying with our criminal laws, in particular the criminal statute that prohibits the harboring or shielding of aliens in the United States,” Barr continued, noting that the DOJ would support DHS with “federal subpoenas to access information about criminal aliens in the custody of uncooperative jurisdictions.”

Fox News:

Charging that so-called “sanctuary” cities that protect illegal immigrants are jeopardizing domestic security, Attorney General Bill Barr announced a slew of additional sanctions that he called a “significant escalation” against left-wing local and state governments that obstruct the “lawful functioning of our nation’s immigration system.”

Speaking at the National Sheriff’s Association 2020 Winter Legislative and Technology Conference in Washington, D.C., Barr said the Justice Department would immediately file multiple lawsuits against sanctuary jurisdictions for unconstitutionally interfering with federal immigration enforcement, and implement unprecedented national reviews of left-wing sanctuary governments and prosecutors.

“The department is filing a complaint against the State of New Jersey seeking declaratory and injunctive relief against its laws that forbid state and local law enforcement from sharing vital information about criminal aliens with DHS,” Barr said.

That was a reference to New Jersey Attorney General Law Enforcement Directive 2018-6, which the DOJ says illegally bars officials from sharing the immigration status and release dates of individuals in custody. It also requires New Jersey law enforcement to “promptly notify a detained individual, in writing and in a language the individual can understand” if Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) files an immigration detainer request for the individual. More

Superb! This would be a major win for conservatism and preserving the bounties of this land for its rightful citizens. Drain these liberal swamps and make them pay for interfering with the safety of American citizens!

Aiding and abetting a criminal is a felony. Arrest the Mayor and entire City Council of these cities and put them on trial for all to see.

Trump Administration Says Funding Secured for 1,000 Miles of Border Wall Construction

The Trump administration says it is working to begin building 1,000 miles of barriers on our southern border with Mexico.



The Trump administration says it is working to begin building 1,000 miles of barriers on our southern border with Mexico.

An administration spokesman told the Daily Caller that despite a 2021 budget that calls for fewer dollars for border wall construction, the administration has already “shifted from securing funds to being able to build more wall.”

Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan said in January he expects to meet President Donald Trump’s goal of erecting 450 miles of new border wall construction by the end of 2020, and the White House maintained that optimism Sunday.

“On the border, there’s great news to report,” the official told the Caller. “The president has kept his promise to secure the border. With funding available, the administration will build up to approximately 1,000 miles of border wall along the southwest border.”

“The 2021 budget request, which has increases for infrastructure, technology, and law enforcement personnel, is what’s required to gain operational control of the border.”

The administration spokesman also noted that the budget for Customs and Border Patrol “jumped to $15.6 billion, up roughly 7 percent from last year’s enacted total.”

“Immigration and Customs Enforcement also saw a significant budget bump, with a funding request just shy of $10 billion,” Daily Caller added.

The spokesman also laid out where the border wall funds are coming. For instance, $8.4 billion is set to come from the Departments of Defense and Homeland Security.

Along with the increased spending on border wall construction, the administration also noted that massive cuts will be implemented in other areas.

Daily Caller added:

The cuts will target agencies with overlapping and similar goals, agencies that provide similar or identical services to the same group of recipients, programs without a clearly defined federal role, federal programs that mirror state-level initiatives and erroneous payments, and for eliminating the following programs entirely:

-National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s Education and Research Centers
-Department of the Interior’s Highlands Conservation Act Grants
-National Park Service’s Save America’s Treasures Grants
-National Endowment for the Arts Endowment for the Humanities
-Corporation for National and Community Service (including AmeriCorps)

This is just as important as the border wall, granted.

Starving the federal government of cash is a hero’s act.

Illegal Alien Who Avoided Deportation Allegedly Murdered 22 Elderly People



Illegal Alien Who Avoided Deportation Allegedly Murdered 22 Elderly People

A criminal alien who avoided deportation is now accused of smothering 22 elderly women in Texas.

The Dallas Morning News reports that the number of alleged victims is now up to 22. Although he has only been indicted in 12 cases so far, there are 10 others in which he is named as the suspect in civil lawsuits. A new lawsuit accusing Preston Place in Plano of negligent security alleges that Chemirmir smothered Miriam Nelson to death on March 9, 2018, just days before he was finally arrested and his actions were discovered because one of the victims survived his attack and was able to identify him. Preston Place is the senior living complex where seven other victims have been identified.

He must have lost his “spark of divinity.” Isn’t it weird CNN hasn’t said anything about this yet?


An illegal alien who used a loophole to obtain a green card is now suspected of smothering 22 elderly people in Texas, most of whom were women.

Billy Chemirmir had posed as a maintenance worker at various senior living facilities throughout the Dallas-Forth Worth metro area between 2016 and 2018. In May 2019 he was finally arrested and charged with the deaths of at least a dozen elderly women, making him one of Texas’ most prolific serial killers.

Now Chemirmir is suspected of killing up to 22 elderly residents of Texas, mostly women, The Dallas Morning News reported. Two lawsuits were filed in the 4th County Court at Law in Dallas by three families alleging their loved ones were killed by Chemirmir and the retirement community where they lived, Preston Place Retirement Community, didn’t do enough to protect them.

One of the victims mentioned in the lawsuits is Miriam Nelson, who told staff at Preston Place that a man she did not recognize had entered her apartment. Two days later, she would be dead. Her son-in-law, former Dallas Cowboys safety Cliff Harris has since called for improved security at Preston Place.

“We made an assumption that it was safe,” Harris told the Morning News. “These ladies, these widows are the most vulnerable part of society. I feel like they were sitting ducks. More

The influx is beyond a lot of people’s comprehension. I was born and raised in Texas. The way the state has changed over the decades is incredibly disheartening to see. My beautiful lone star state has been overrun. All because the Republicans have been asleep at the wheel on this issue for decades.

This is Obama’s shameful legacy. He let all these people in and now Americans are being killed all over the country.  This guy came all the way from Africa, just to be executed in Texas. I hope they break out the electric chair for this thug. Every Democrat that is for illegals and open borders should be charged as an accomplice to these crimes.

Orange County Calif. Has Released Thousands of Criminal Illegals Due to Sanctuary Laws

The liberals running Orange County, California, have put every citizen at risk by releasing thousands of criminal illegals into the population.



The liberals running Orange County, California, have put every citizen at risk by releasing thousands of criminal illegals into the general population due to the state’s coddling of illegals with sanctuary laws.

In the last two years, Orange County has released more than 2,000 dangerous criminals into the population because of the state’s sanctuary laws.

Worse, 400 of these dangerous criminals were later arrested for even worse crimes including, rape, child sexual abuse, domestic assault, and other heinous crimes.

This is all due to California’s SB 54, the sanctuary law that forces county sheriffs to end cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and to release illegals despite their crimes against Americans.

As Daily Caller reported:

California’s SB 54, legislation that largely restricts cooperation between ICE and law enforcement, went into effect in January 2018. Since that time, Orange County has released over 2,100 illegal aliens back into the community despite ICE detainers placed on every single one of them, the agency announced in a Wednesday press release. The sheriff’s department released 1,106 inmates without notifying ICE in 2018 and released another 1,015 again in 2019 without notifying the agency.

But some county officials are speaking out against the law.

“SB 54 has made our community less safe. The law has resulted in new crimes because my deputies were unable to communicate with their federal partners about individuals who committed serious offenses and present a threat to our community if released,” Orange County Sheriff-Coroner Don Barnes said in a statement, according to Daily Caller.

“The two-year social science experiment with sanctuary laws must end. Rather than protect our immigrant community, the law has enabled offenders to be released, often times back into the immigrant communities they prey upon, and create new victims,” Barnes added.

This is what the left is doing to us — all in service to their PC need to cater to the criminal illegals constantly breaking our laws and flooding across our border.

Clearly, Democrats are far more dangerous to our country than any terrorist cell.

Trump Admin. Finally Moving to End ‘Birth Tourism’ and Anchor Babies

The Trump Administration is finally moving to put a crimp in “birth tourism” and “anchor babies.”



The Trump Administration is finally moving to put a crimp in “birth tourism” and “anchor babies” where pregnant foreigners come to the U.S. to have babies that become automatic U.S. citizens.

The administration has issued new orders to consular officers to deny visas to foreign women who they feel are only interested in visiting the U.S.A. in order to have their children, the Associated Press reported.

The women will now have to definitively prove that they need to visit the U.S. for legitimate medical treatment and that they also have the money to pay for whatever procedures they are looking to receive.

The new rules are set to take effect on Friday, the source told the AP.

The chief goal of the change in visa rules is to put a dampener on the problem of birthright citizenship, which was supposed to be used to confer citizenship on people who intend to be Americans, not foreigners who want to use citizenship to drain the country of benefits.

The change is also an effort to put an end to the foreign groups that make millions a year off “birth tourism,” where they charge women fees to arrange their transportation to the U.S. to have their babies.

As the AP noted:

Birth tourism is a lucrative business in both the U.S. and abroad. American companies take out advertisements and charge up to $80,000 to facilitate the practice, offering hotel rooms and medical care. Many of the women travel from Russia and China to give birth in the U.S. The U.S. has been cracking down on the practice since before Trump took office.

There are no figures on how many foreign women travel to the U.S. specifically to give birth. The Center for Immigration Studies, a group that advocates for stricter immigration laws, estimated that in 2012, about 36,000 foreign-born women gave birth in the U.S., then left the country.

According to the government source, the draft rule is “intended to address the national security and law enforcement risks associated with birth tourism, including criminal activity associated with the birth tourism industry.”

Joe Biden Says Illegal Aliens are More American Than Americans

Democrat Creepy Joe Biden recently insisted on the campaign trail that illegal aliens are more American than actual Americans.



Democrat presidential candidate Creepy Joe Biden recently insisted on the campaign trail that illegal aliens are more American than actual Americans.

During a campaign stop in Ames, Iowa, the former vice president insisted that illegal aliens in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are “more American than most Americans” because they had “done well in school.”

During his stopover, Biden said:

“These kids have come, they’ve done well, most of these kids there’s a lot of them, and they’re not just Hispanic, they’re Asian-Pacific Islanders as well. and they in fact have done very well. In many cases, they’re more American than most Americans because they have done well in school.”

Biden added that DACA kids all share America’s “basic principles” and deserve a pathway to citizenship.

The Democrat candidate for 2020 also recently exclaimed that illegals convicted of drunk driving should not be candidates for deportation because of the conviction.

During a January 20 interview, Biden said that immigration agents should “only arrest for the purpose of dealing with a felony that’s committed [in the United States], and I don’t count drunk driving as a felony.”

“We’re not going to deport anybody who has not — in this country — committed a felony in this country. In this country, committed a felony,” Biden added.

Biden also talked of the death of his own wife in 1972, killed by a drunk driver. But Biden has been lying about this incident for decades and the media never calls him on it.

Along with the claim that Joe Biden had a “blue-collar” upbringing — he had a decidedly upper class (though not “rich”) childhood — Joe Biden has for years claimed that his first wife and his daughter were killed by a “drunk driver” in 1972. However, closer examination of the records proves that the man driving the truck that slammed into the Biden family car was never charged with drunken driving. So, why has the media allowed this perception that Biden lost his wife to a drunk driver to persist?

As late as 2007 Biden said that the man who was involved in the fatal crash that killed his wife and daughter was a “guy who allegedly … drank his lunch” before he got behind the wheel of his truck and in 2001 the TV show Inside Edition aired a tape of Biden saying the truck driver “stopped to drink instead of drive.” Additionally, several media outlets have included the drunk driver claim in their bios of the Senator from Delaware.

This drunk driving accusation, though, is simply a Biden creation and every time this claim is uttered it pains the family of the poor, maligned man involved in the tragic accident with Biden’s family, truck driver Curtis C. Dunn. Gannett owned DelewareOnline reports the anguish that Biden’s continued lie causes the man’s family every time it is uttered.

“To see it coming from [Biden’s] mouth, I just burst into tears,” Dunn’s daughter, Glasgow resident Pamela Hamill, 44, said Wednesday. “My dad was always there for us. Now we feel like we should be there for him because he’s not here to defend himself.”

In truth, there was no finding of alcohol being involved in this tragic incident. In fact, some investigators thought at the time that the accident was caused by Biden’s wife pulling out into the intersection not having seen Dunn’s truck bearing down upon her. It was simply a horrible accident with no blame saying Dunn was at fault, much less drunk.
