Seven men have been arrested for an attempt to rob a jewelry store in Texas. The men are all Mexican nationals that were in the USA illegally.
“Once the suspects complete their sentences, they will be turned over to CBP so they can process their immigration and criminal histories accordingly.
The men were arraigned in court on Monday afternoon after they allegedly tried to rob the store at the La Plaza Mall in McAllen on Saturday. Mallgoers initially misconstrued their breaking the glass cases as gunfire, sparking a panic throughout the building.”
Five of these men gave false names when they were arrested. Could the wall have stopped these people from coming into our country and breaking our laws?

Philadelphia will stop giving U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement access to a real-time arrest database, saying the agency is misusing the information to conduct sweeps in which otherwise law-abiding immigrants are also being caught up.
Story By Gregg Re | Fox News
Pennsylvania is a state that is considered a flip state. Since 1992 the state has voted for a Democrat President. But in 2016, the state voted for President Trump. It is interesting how stories like this reflect the entire state.
This Friday, July 27, 2018, the Mayor of Philadelphia announced it will no longer cooperate with ICE when their contract ends in August.
This Mayor was caught last month dancing and singing about being a sanctuary city after a court win. Mayor Kenny said:
“I cannot in good conscience allow the agreement to continue,” Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney told the Philadelphia Inquirer about Friday’s announcement. “We’re not going to provide them with information so they can go out and round people up.”
He added: “If I could abolish ICE, I would. But we can abolish this contract, and we are.”
The DHS responded:
“U.S. Homeland Security spokeswoman Katie Waldman called the decision irresponsible and said the city will end up “harboring criminal aliens.”
“Sanctuary-city policies make American communities like Philadelphia less safe by putting the rights of criminal aliens over the safety and security of American citizens,” Waldman said. “Despite the misguided action taken by Philadelphia today, DHS will continue to work to remove illegal aliens and uphold public safety.”
If conservatives do not stand up for what they want like these extreme liberals and socialist do, we will see more Representatives make moves like this.

A Republican lawmaker is demanding answers from the FBI after he says the agency has admitted to working with the controversial Southern Poverty Law Center.
Tucker Carlson from Fox News broke a story that the FBI has been working with Southern Poverty Law Center since 2009 to identify Domestic Terrorist or Hate Groups in America.
“In a letter obtained by Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., says the FBI has “admitted to working with the SPLC,” in a development he describes as “surprising and worrisome.”
“This is surprising and worrisome, as the SPLC is known to use its platform in order to denigrate and disparage certain groups by labeling them ‘hate groups,’” he said.
He said that groups such as the Christian Family Research Council (FRC) have been labeled a hate group, while members of “Antifa” — a broad collaboration of left-leaning, anti-fascist activists — have not been given such a label. He added that Floyd Corkins, who shot an FRC employee, later said he targeted the group as the SPLC had labeled it an antigay group.”
The SPLC is an extreme left-wing group. The foundation for labeling certain groups is nothing more than an opinion they hold about the groups. They have even labeled Unite America First as a Hate Group when we held a rally in Dearborn, MI. Saying we were anti-Muslim. We were never contacted by them or had a conversation about our rally or our intentions.
They did the same thing to an organization by Maajid Nawaz called the Quilliam Foundation. They claimed that they were “Anti-Muslim extremists”. Mr. Nawaz went after them for the false claim and won a $3.3 million settlement. The organization itself is a Hate Group. They call any group that has a different opinion as them as a Hate Group.
The story by Adam Shaw of Fox News continues to report that:
“Gaetz’s letter requests more information on the FBI’s alleged ties to the group, including how much weight the FBI gives to SPLC designations of “hate groups” and what information, if any, the bureau provides to the group.”
It is news like this that makes the integrity of the FBI questionable.

The Obama administration approved a $200,000 grant to a group in Sudan with ties to Al Qaeda even though it had been designated a terrorist-financing organization by the U.S. years earlier, a conservative think tank revealed this week.

It has been revealed that the Obama administration approved a $200,000 grant to a group in Sudan with ties to Al Qaeda even though they had previously been designated as a terrorist funding group. The article continues to say,
“More stunningly, government officials specifically authorized the release of at least $115,000 of this grant even after learning that it was a designated terror organization,” Westrop wrote in the article.
Some ask, why does this matter? He isn’t President anymore. To me, it shows that our government representatives don’t have any ethical, moral, or integrity complaints about you unless they don’t like you. Either Congress, FBI, and CIA were completely asleep for 8 years, or they turned a blind eye. They liked Obama and their ideas aligned with his. As for President Trump, they analyze every move he makes. If they did this to Obama he would not be so loved by the left.

The Trump administration said Thursday that more than 1,800 children separated at the U.S.-Mexico border have been reunited with parents and sponsors but hundreds remain apart, signaling a potentially arduous task ahead as it deals with the fallout of its “zero tolerance” policy on people entering the U.S. illegally.
Today is the deadline for illegal children and families to be reunited. This administration has been working hard to ensure these children are reunited with people who are proven to be their families and are not in harmful situations. That has been a great task. They have been doing DNA tests, background checks, and other investigations. The court has even praised the administration for the job they have done. All in all, 1800 children have been reunited with parents and sponsors. But hundreds remain apart. It seems unlikely they will make the deadline. While the policy to separate families was created before President Trump, he did support the longtime tradition with “Zero Tolerance.” Imagine that, he wanted the government to uphold the policies they had in place. But the left is making it seem like Trump created this immigration problem. As long as I can remember every single President before Trump has admitted to the immigration problem. Clinton, Bush, and Obama did. In this article Lee Gelernt, an American Civil Liberties Union said,
“before the latest figures were announced that the government should not be congratulating itself for meeting its “self-defined” deadline.
“The government shouldn’t be proud of the work they’re doing on reunification,” he said. “It should just be, ‘We created this cruel, inhumane policy … now we’re trying to fix it in every way we can and make these families whole.”
This administration did not create this problem. Previous weak Presidents created this problem. Trump is the only one taking steps to fix it. But they will never give him credit.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo took a firm line on Russia during an at-times incendiary Senate hearing on Wednesday.
Today Secretary of State Mike Pompeo clashed with lawmakers on the Hill. Both Democrats and Republicans question Presidents Trumps tactics dealing with Putin. After all President Trump has done towards Putin they still claim he is being “soft”. If Trump is soft, then what were all the previous administrations? Republican Senator Mr. Corker said,
“That shocks people,” Corker said. “To purposefully cause the American people to misunderstand about the NATO contributions, and to cause them to doubt NATO and to really drive the public opinion against NATO — that to me was purposeful, not unlike what happened right after Charlottesville,”
Gregg Re of Fox News reported, “He was referring to the violent, even deadly protests in Charlottesville, Va., last August, after which Trump took heat for not more forcefully condemning the actions of white nationalists there.”
Pompeo responds by saying,
“Senator, I just disagree with most of what you just said there,” Pompeo said. “Somehow there is this idea that this administration is free-floating. This is President Trump’s administration. Make no mistake who’s fully in charge of this, and directing each of these activities that is causing Vladimir Putin to be in a very difficult place today.”
“You are not responding to what I’m saying,” Corker responded. “You just didn’t, OK?”
“We’ll let the world decide,” Pompeo retorted. He added that NATO members have pledged to increase their share of defense spending in part because of Trump’s rhetoric.
“They are behaving differently today, there’s no doubt about that,” Pompeo said. “They are now scrambling to make sure they are a full part of NATO.” Corker responded, “I agree with that,” but claimed some of Trump’s comments are “damaging.”
You know what, who cares if the comments Trump made were “damaging”, they were truthful. How about standing behind your President when he is standing up for America.
