Trump Must Stand Firm on Border Wall

President Trump met with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer to discuss funding for a wall to secure our southern border. Once again, the Democratic leaders pushed back on funding and refused to acknowledge the serious threat we face at the southern border if we don’t secure it. Trump wants $5 billion for the project and Democrats are only willing to budget for $1.3 billion for some “fencing.” Trump has warned that if Democrats aim for less than $5 billion, a partial shutdown is imminent. The meeting today shows that Pelosi and Schumer were never going to compromise on funding for a project that ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: More Hypocrisy From the Left on Illegal Immigration

Two weeks ago, immigrants illegally crossing the border near the San Ysidro port of entry threw rocks and bottles at border patrol agents as they tried to force their way over the fence separating the U.S. and Mexico. Border patrol agents, facing a large and unpredictable group of people, used pepper spray to halt immigrants coming towards them. No shots were fired and no one was seriously injured. It didn’t take long for Senate Democrats to use this incident to push their political agenda against a border wall and strong immigration. Have they forgotten there were more instances of tear gas used on illegal immigrants crossing the border during ...

Don’t Be Fooled by Liberal Media’s Narrative on the Caravan

About a hundred immigrants, including women and children, made it to the southern border seeking asylum only to be pepper sprayed by U.S. Border Patrol agents – at least that’s what liberal media would have you believe is the entire story. Let’s add the facts: Immigrants illegally crossing the border near the San Ysidro port of entry threw rocks and bottles at border patrol agents as they tried to force their way over the fence separating the U.S. and Mexico. After making several commands for the immigrants to stop, border patrol agents used pepper spray to halt immigrants coming towards them. No shots were fired and no one was seriously ...

Increased Border Security Can Do A Lot More Than Just Stop the Caravan

The U.S. Army has arrived along the U.S.-Mexico border, preparing for the arrival of the caravan carrying migrants who will attempt to cross the border. The increase in border security has unexpectedly hindered illegal drug trafficking by the Gulf Cartel. The Washington Examiner has the story: According to an eyewitness report, troops and trucks are delivering construction equipment, portable bathrooms and security to several areas along the border, the first wave of President Trump’s promise to bolster immigration enforcement with 5,000 or more soldiers. The show of force is having the beneficial side effect of curbing illegal drug traffic...

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Calls on Sen. Harris to Apologize for Comparing ICE to the KKK

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement calling on Senator Kamala Harris to apologize for comparing ICE to the KKK. When Senator Kamala Harris compared ICE to the KKK during her questioning of Ronald Vitiello, President Trump’s nominee to lead ICE, she confirmed a deep-seated animus for law enforcement that has been manifesting itself among Democrats more publicly in recent years. ICE officers risk their lives every day when they rescue victims of sex trafficking - they literally save women and children from rape, abuse, and torture. ICE officers confront the violent cartels ...

Sanctuary City-Protected “Dreamer” Charged With Triple Murder

An illegal immigrant released from jail in a sanctuary city was later charged with a triple murder. The suspect was also a DACA recipient. The Washington Examiner has the story: Despite the administration’s opposition, House Democrats are expected to push for continued recognition of DACA “Dreamers” when they take power in January. ICE said that Perez was let go from a New Jersey jail because the facility does not respect ICE requests for prisoners who are illegal immigrants. ICE sought Perez in December, but he was released and ICE was notified. “Had ICE’s detainer request in December 2017 been honored by Middlesex County Jail, ...

What’s the cost of keeping illegal immigrants in America?

A caravan of 4,000 immigrants is making its way to the southern U.S. border and there are many reasons why Americans should worry. A recent Center for Immigration Studies report shows a surge in the number of illegal immigrants crossing the border as well as an increase in the price taxpayers are left to pay for illegal immigrants who stay. The Washington Examiner has the details: The net costs to taxpayers for every illegal immigrant who sneaks into the United States has reached nearly $70,000, about seven times the cost of deporting them, and about $70 billion, according to a new report. And, according to federal Census data, the surge of ...

Securing the border is a top priority

The Pentagon deployed roughly 5,200 troops to the southern border to await the caravan carrying 4,000 illegal immigrants. Troops have been deployed to South Texas, Arizona and California for the stronghold now known as Operation Faithful Patriot. Fox News has the story: There already are about 2,000 National Guard troops assisting at the border under a previous Pentagon arrangement. With thousands of additional troops headed south, there will be roughly the same number of American forces positioned along the southern border as there are deployed to Iraq and Syria combined. While troops are being deployed, White House officials are continuing to ...

Tea Party Patriots Action’s Martin on Birthright Citizenship: “The amendment has been misinterpreted for decades.”

Tea Party Patriots Action Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin, responding to President Trump’s decision to order by executive action that babies born in the United States to illegal immigrants will no longer be granted so-called “birthright citizenship,” today released the following statement: “The right to U.S. citizenship is one of the greatest gifts to be found anywhere in the world, and is not to be granted lightly. The framers of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, acknowledging this, made clear their belief that only persons born or naturalized in the United States who were ‘subject to the jurisdiction thereof’ were to be ...
