Adios! New Mexico Sets Example For Border States, Begins Building Border Wall

Published

on

Immigration is a hot-button issue that has dominated media outlets for several months. While it has always been a controversial issue that is universally discussed, especially in the United States, in recent months the conversations have increased due to problems at the southern border between Mexico and the United States. While there are many people who have come out against President Trump and his administration for their Department of Homeland Security, Department of Justice, and the Department of Health and Human Services policies, new developments out West have changed the immigration game.

The Daily Caller is reporting,

“New Mexico is progressing on its 20-mile border wall construction west of Santa Teresa, replacing old posts and rail barriers as part of President Donald Trump’s initiative to halt illegal immigration and drug trafficking. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said more than 8,100 panels stretching over 11 miles were built as of Aug. 8, according to the Associated Press Friday. “It’s going to be harder to get over, harder to get through, harder to get underneath,” Chief Patrol Agent Aaron Hull of the El Paso sector told the Albuquerque Journal on April 9. “It’s going to have a five-foot, anti-scaling plate at the top.”

The barrier will be as tall as 18 feet in some areas, depending on the location. The “wall of steel” was approved in 2017 and construction of the $73.3 million project began April 9, the Journal reported. Environmentalists sued over the construction because they said the wall would block migration patterns of wildlife, the AP reported March 22. Mexican gray wolves, Aplomado falcons and kit foxes are among the wildlife creatures that inhabit the area.

“Waiving these safeguards to rush construction of President Trump’s ill-conceived border wall will no doubt adversely impact the communities and wildlife along the border,” senior attorney at Defenders of Wildlife Jason Rylander said in a statement, according to the AP.

El Paso Border Patrol caught more than 25,000 people crossing the border and captured over 34,000 pounds of marijuana along with 140 pounds of cocaine in fiscal year 2017, according to the Journal. The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Defenders of Wildlife for comment, but did not receive an immediate response in time for publication.”

Throughout the 2016 presidential election then-candidate, Donald Trump repeatedly made building the border wall a key part of his campaign messaging. He has continued to maintain that messaging while in office. While the estimated cost is $8 to $12 billion, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has insisted that Mexico will not be paying for it despite promises by President Trump that they would. Regardless, in the first month of the president’s administration, he signed an executive order that would allow for the start of construction on extending the border wall.

The National Border Patrol Council did a study, after the border wall negotiations began, where they found that 89% of all border patrol agents were supportive of an expanded border wall for security purposes while merely 7% were opposed. As a result of negotiations and hard work, earlier this year the House of Representatives and Senate appropriated approximately $1.6 billion for the border wall, out of the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill. Shortly thereafter, the administration announced the beginning of the construction which included eight prototype barriers which were made out of concrete. Just two months ago in June, construction workers began working on the San Diego section of the wall.

Those on the left who are opposed to the border wall have protested immensely. Their greatest condemnations include concerns over divided land, Hidalgo County, Mexico’s opposition, migrant deaths, and most of all, the environmental impact. While these have always been concerns they have increased since the president has made the border wall a key policy of his administration. Environmental concerns mainly center around the use of waivers by the Department of Homeland Security to allegedly bypass various laws such as the National Environmental Policy Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the Noise Control Act, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act, the Federal Land Policy and Management Act, the American Indian Religious Freedom Act, and the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act to name a few.

However, regardless of concerns construction on the wall has begun with the support of the President, the House of Representatives, and the Senate. New Mexico is just one of many others that have already started complying with federal law to ensure this outcome. It is expected that those in New Mexico and those representing other southern border states will begin to either comment on the process or make their stance known.

Kavanaugh Accuser Unravelling – Hit With Stiff Ultimatum After Ignoring Senate’s Inquiries

As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, RWN offers the following information published by The Daily Caller:

Maine Republican Sen. Susan Collins said she finds it odd that Christine Blasey Ford, the woman accusing Judge Brett Kavanaugh of high school-era sexual assault, will not respond to inquiries from the Senate Judiciary Committee.

“That’s very puzzling to me. I have said from the beginning that these are very serious allegations and she deserves to be heard. She’s now being given an opportunity to come before the Senate Judiciary Committee and to answer questions and I really hope that she doesn’t pass up that opportunity,” Collins said to a group of reporters in the Dirksen Senate Office Building Tuesday morning.

This comes as Ford previously said she would be willing to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Collins has been on the fence on her support for Kavanaugh, and mentioned to reporters Tuesday she would like to see the “two attorneys who are representing Judge Kavanaugh and Professor Ford do the questioning for the first round and then go to the committee for questions.”

“It’s not unheard of to have counsel do questioning,” she added. “[Ford] will be represented by counsel. And I think it’s important that we hear from both Professor Ford and Judge Kavanaugh under oath in a public hearing.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed Democrats for bringing forward a 36-year-old accusation of misconduct against Supreme Court nominee Kavanaugh, on the Senate floor Monday.

Mueller Investigation Comes To Screeching Halt After Anti-Trump Dem Exposes His Fatal Mistake

Published

* By

Bob Woodward, an investigative reporter who works for The Washington Post, has been in the business of ‘dirty little secrets’ so long that he was part of the team who cast a light on Richard Nixon during Watergate. In fact, once Fox News even called him a Watergate legend. Well, it has become quite obvious that now he has his sights set on President Trump and his administration. In fact, he makes it very clear where he stands when it comes to President Trump in his new “secret” book, ‘Fear’.

Yes, it was a secret because he told no one about it for the past 19 months he’s been writing it. He wanted to keep a ‘low profile’ while he researched what he planned to include in the book. There was a press release for ‘Fear’ that described the book as “an unprecedented look into the harrowing life inside Donald Trump’s White House and how the president makes decisions on major foreign and domestic policies”.

Woodward claims that he engaged in “hundreds of hours of interviews with firsthand sources”. It is for this reason, we can tip a hat to the man’s work ethic despite the difference of opinion we have with him regarding President Trump and the administration. I am going to show you why right now.

Bob Woodward had an interview with Hugh Hewitt recently, in fact just a few days ago. In this interview what he revealed arguably gives President Trump supporters a very good reason to send a fat “IN YOUR FACE!” telegram to Democrats.

Check this out!

“So let’s set aside the Comey firing, which as a Constitutional law professor, no one will ever persuade me can be obstruction. And Rod Rosenstein has laid out reasons why even if those weren’t the president’s reasons. Set aside the Comey firing. Did you, Bob Woodward, hear anything in your research in your interviews that sounded like espionage or collusion?” Hugh Hewitt asked Woodward.

“I did not, and of course, I looked for it, looked for it hard,” Woodward answered. “And so you know, there we are. We’re going to see what Mueller has, and Dowd may be right. He has something that Dowd and the president don’t know about, a secret witness or somebody who has changed their testimony. As you know, that often happens, and that can break open or turn a case.”

“But you’ve seen no collusion?” Hewitt asked again to confirm.”

“I have not,” Woodward affirmed.”

Hewitt would once again ask Woodward about collusion at the conclusion of the interview.

“Very last question, Bob Woodward, I just want to confirm, at the end of two years of writing this book, this intensive effort, you saw no effort, you, personally, had no evidence of collusion or espionage by the president presented to you?” Hewitt asked.”

“That is correct,” Woodward said.”

Now if that isn’t satisfying to read, I don’t know what is. Not once, but twice Woodward clarified that he did not find ANY evidence of collusion during his research. This is coming from the same investigative reporter that was called at one time ‘a legend’ for his work. I mean, this is a man who is known for his extensive interviews with first witnesses, and research into documents, meeting notes, calendars, and even diaries. He is praised for how he constructs seamless narratives of events that he tells through the eyes of actual key participants.

Even the left knows this about him.

So, you can bet that him saying not once, but twice that he found zero evidence of collusion, is going be a real slap in the face for the left. Maybe if we listen very carefully we will be able to feel the tremor being caused by a nation full of ‘triggering’ liberals right this very second!

But I digress…

Despite this, there is still a lot of manipulative work he put into the book as well. For example, the petty stuff he made sure to include, was absolutely ridiculous.

Things such as:

“Fear: Trump In The White House also details President Trump’s explosive rants.”

“He is said to have called Attorney General Jeff Sessions “mentally retarded”, allegedly adding: “He’s this dumb Southerner. … He couldn’t even be a one-person country lawyer down in Alabama.”

I’d like to give a moment now to Trump, to clear things up on this.

There were also many schoolyard claims about White House Chief John Kelly such as the following:

“White House chief of staff John Kelly frequently lost his temper and referred to President Donald Trump as “unhinged” and an “idiot,” author Bob Woodward writes in his new book “Fear: Trump in the White House.”

We can clear that up to, since the book’s release Kelly has had something to say about this claim.

“Kelly, in a statement Tuesday, denied the claims as simply “not true.” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders also refuted the book’s claims.”

“Kelly said in his statement that “the idea I ever called the President an idiot is not true . . . . As I stated back in May and still firmly stand behind: ‘I spend more time with the President than anyone else, and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship. He always knows where I stand, and he and I both know this story is total BS.'”

“I’m committed to the President, his agenda, and our country,” Kelly said. “This is another pathetic attempt to smear people close to President Trump and distract from the administration’s many successes.”

“Sanders said Tuesday that “This book is nothing more than fabricated stories, many by former disgruntled employees, told to make the president look bad.”

Needless to say, the book ‘Fear’ is just another ‘he said, she said’ work created with the purpose of adding fire to the left’s agenda and casting doubt upon the shoulders our President, but do you think it will have that effect at all? We want to know what you think!
