Nothing to See Here, Say Hoyer and Friends

On February 9, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) led a group of Congressional Democrats to Sunland Park, NM, just across the state line from El Paso.   He and his group, while expressing “humanitarian” concerns for illegal immigrants sneaking across the border,  announced afterwards that there was no crisis that required more fencing . …

Caravan Now at the Texas Border

A large migrant caravan numbering between 1500 and 2000 has arrived at Piedras Negras, Coahuila, Mexico, across the border from Eagle Pass, Texas.  This is apparently the same caravan we reported on January 31, which at that time was leaving Mexico City, headed north.  Yesterday, they arrived, on 55 buses from Saltillo, Mexico.  In response to …

Meet the Trump of Tijuana

Just south of the U.S.-Mexico border is a political leader who stands up for his people unapologetically  and does  not back down in the face of criticism. He is Juan Manuel Gastélum, mayor of Tijuana, and he has become known locally as the “Trump of Tijuana,” a nickname he wears proudly.  He has also been known …

What’s Good for General Motors….

Back during the Eisenhower administration, the CEO of General Motors,  Charles “Engine Charlie” Wilson, famously said something like, “What’s good for General Motors is good for the country,” the country being the United States. (His actual wording was a little different, but his sentiment was clear.) How times have changed. Nowadays, “what’s good for General …

Trump Expands “Wait-in-Mexico” Program

A few days ago we reported on the new “Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP)” program being implemented by the Trump administration at the San Ysidro port of entry in San Diego. Known informally as “wait-in-Mexico,” MPP requires that asylum seekers whose cases are being heard in a U.S. court be transported daily back to Mexico as …

We reported yesterday that the latest migrant caravan of about 2400 had left Mexico City and was heading north, possibly for a border crossing in Texas.  Also yesterday, President Trump responded to the approach of more migrants by sending an unstated additional number of troops. Here is his tweet:             …

Destination: Monterrey?

About 2400 Central American migrants left Mexico City this morning to resume their northward trek toward the United States border.  While recent asylum seekers have anticipated that Tijuana is the  border city most likely to allow a successful crossing, city officials and residents of that city have become increasingly cold to further migrants. In addition, …

Now It’s Nicaraguans….

Most of the recent asylum seekers caravanning and otherwise making their way to the U.S. have been from three failed Central American states: Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. Up to now, we’ve heard little from a fourth troubled country, Nicaragua. That is now apparently changing. Political unrest, governmental repression, and the usual harsh economic picture are among …

American City Overwhelmed by Asylum Seekers–in Maine

We usually expect cities in the southern parts of the U.S. to face the greatest challenges from large influxes of foreign asylum seekers. It turns out that’s not always the case. The largest city in Maine, Portland, can be added to the list of asylum-impacted American cities. Due to unusually immigrant-friendly policies of the leftist …
