Even High-End Border Wall Estimate a Great Deal for American Taxpayers

The mainstream media is making a huge (yuge) deal about the estimated cost to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. An internal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document supposedly concluded that it would cost $21.6 billion and take 3.5 years to complete the border wall. The open borders media is giddy that this estimate is more than double President Trump’s claim that it would cost around $10 billion to build and also higher than the $12-15 billion estimate Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) predicted. Using his favorite messaging platform, President Trump tweeted, “I am reading that the...

Yesterday afternoon, Acting Attorney General Sally Yates—an Obama holdover until Sen. Jeff Sessions is confirmed—instructed Department of Justice (DOJ) personnel not to enforce Trump’s executive order on national security, which included a temporary...

The DACA Pardon Issue is Finally Laid to Rest

Once the shock from Donald Trump’s surprise presidential victory wore off, open borders groups and illegal aliens began scrambling for ideas to keep DACA individuals in the country. The panic was unsurprising because President Obama unilaterally created DACA meaning his unconstitutional executive action had no basis in law and could be immediately nullified by a future president—a point Obama repeatedly acknowledged. What is surprising is the absurd “answer” these groups came up with: Obama should pardon the approximately 750,000 DACA recipients. Any attorney worthy of the degree hanging on his/her office wall could immediately tell you this is not...
