( Daily Caller ) President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the US military will be used to guard the US-Mexico border.

“We are going to be guarding our border with our military. That’s a big step,” Trump told reporters gathered at the White House. “We cannot have people flowing into our country illegally, disappearing, and by the way never showing up for court.”

The President’s comments appear to take aim at current US policy which requires border agents to catch then release family units who arrive at the border from noncontiguous countries.

He also said he had spoken with Secretary of Defense James Mattis about the use of the military to guard the border.

In recent days, Trump has repeatedly tweeted about a caravan of illegal immigrants making their way from Honduras to the US border via Mexico. The President had threatened to end the NAFTA agreement if the Mexican government did not stop the caravan and to end U.S. aid to Honduras.

BAD! TRUMP SIGNS BILL THAN BANS BORDER WALL FUNDING – ANN COULTER WARNS PRESIDENT ‘WILL BE IMPEACHED’

Posted on

 

  •  The omnibus bans Trump from funding a new border wall, increases the Catch and Release program for illegal aliens, and does not fund the 1,000 new deportation agents he had previously requested.

 

( Breitbart ) President Trump signed off on the Republicans’ omnibus spending bill that does not include a single provision from his 70-point list of pro-American immigration reforms.

In a series of online posts, Coulter told Trump he will “be impeached” after signing the spending bill ahead of the 2018 midterm elections where Republican voters are increasingly disappointed with anti-border wall, pro-immigration party leaders like House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

“ I will never sign another bill like this again” Yeah, because you’ll be impeached.

 

“MASSIVE DEFENSE SPENDING to induct transgenders & build BIG BEAUTIFUL walls … in Jordan, Lebanon, Egypt, and Tunisia.”

 

 

 

UPDATE! Trump signed 2,200-plus page $1.3 trillion budget bill with no border wall and DACA funding

Posted on Updated on

 

UPDATE! …Trump: No Choice but to Sign Omnibus… Won’t Do It Again…

“I am considering a VETO of the Omnibus Spending Bill based on the fact that the 800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National Defense, is not fully funded,” Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday morning.

Trump’s statement counters his White House budget director Mick Mulvaney, who told reporters yesterday that the president would sign the bill, even though it was not perfect.

“Let’s cut right to the chase: Is the President going to sign the bill? The answer is yes,” Mulvaney said on Thursday.

But the president appears to have second thoughts after the bloated $1.3 trillion spending package passed the Senate in the middle of the night. Many members of Congress already leaving Washington, DC for their break or on foreign travel.

Trump has repeatedly questioned the bill’s failure to fund the wall, frustrated that Democrats refused to budge on his funding priority.

PRESIDENT TRUMP VISITS BORDER WALL PROTOTYPE IN CALIFORNIA

Posted on Updated on

 

OTAY MESA, California — President Donald Trump arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border early Tuesday afternoon to inspect the eight prototypes for the border wall he promised to build.

It was the president’s first stop on his first visit to California since taking office, and came just days after the Department of Justice filed a lawsuit in Sacramento challenging the constitutionality of the state’s “sanctuary” laws.

Trump was accompanied by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and escorted by Chief Patrol Agent Rodney S. Scott, who oversees the San Diego sector of the border.

‘I’m All For It’: DACA Immigrants Suddenly Changing Their Tune On Trump And The Border Wall

  • “If building a wall leads us to having citizenship, then I’m all for it”

 

( TWJ By Chris White  ) Many of the so-called Dreamers worried about their immigration status are starting to reconsider their opposition to a possible wall at the U.S.-Mexico border, according to a report Friday from the San Francisco Chronicle.

President Donald Trump’s wall at the border wouldn’t be so bad, some groups are now saying, so long as it means citizenship for the nearly 700,000 people brought into the country through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

“If building a wall leads us to having citizenship, then I’m all for it,” Ana Rodriguez, who works at a daycare center in California, told reporters at the Chronicle. “The U.S. is what I know and that’s where I want to live my life — I want to be a part of it in full.”

 

Rodriguez and others like her are arguing about accepting a trade-off — giving Trump his wall in exchange for retaining DACA.  The Trump administration proposed a bill earlier this month offering citizenship to 1.8 million illegal immigrants in exchange for $25 billion for a border wall.

Activist organizations have also noted that DACA recipients are making recalculations about their opposition. Marissa Montes, co-director of the Loyola Immigrant Justice Clinic in Los Angeles, noticed in recent weeks that they are sounding more and more likely to back a wall in exchange for citizenship.

 

“It’s coming from a point of exhaustion — they’ve tried everything,” Montes told reporters. “Their instinct is survival and as human beings, how much longer can they endure this? They’re ping-ponging back and forth.”

White House Proposal Extends Amnesty for 1.8 Million Illegals in Exchange for 25 Billion for Wall, End of Chain Migration, Visa Lottery

  • The path to citizenship would require a 10-12 year period where recipients would be required to demonstrate good behavior,  work and education requirements, and good moral character.

 

The bill’s framework would apply to the roughly 690,000 illegal immigrants who registered for the DACA program started by former President Barack Obama as well as illegal immigrants who did not apply. A senior administration official told reporters that the 1.8 million number would be restricted by minor adjustments to timeframes and dates of entry issues.

“The argument is by some people in Congress is that there is another 690,000 roughly that never got around to registering but fall into the general category, age, and all the rest of it,” the official said. “Those combined come to 1.8 million.”

The path to citizenship would require a 10-12 year period where recipients would be required to demonstrate good behavior,  work and education requirements, and good moral character.

A senior White House official described the plan as an “extraordinarily generous concession” with Democrats but made several demands considered non-starters by members of Congress supporting amnesty.

The White House said that it intended to send the framework to Senate Majority Mitch McConnell, who promised Democrats a vote on the Senate floor by February 8.

The framework includes a $25 billion lump sum “trust fund” for a border security “wall system” for not only the Southern border but major security investments on the Northern border as well.

“No. No. No.” – TRUMP SAYS NO DACA DEAL WITHOUT BORDER WALL FUNDING

“No. No. No.” he replied after a reporter asked him if he would sign a DACA bill even if it did not include funding for building the wall on the Southern border.

“We need the wall for security, we need the wall for safety,” he said. “We need the wall from stopping drugs from pouring in.”

Trump appeared confident that the bipartisan congressional group could come up with a solution to the DACA problem but stated that any solution to immigration had to include the wall.

“Without the wall, it all doesn’t work … we need the wall, we have to have the wall for security purposes,” he said. “Security is number one and so the answer is — have to have the wall.”
