Beto Backtracks on Border Wall: ‘Physical Barrier’ Needed in ‘Some Places’

Less than a week after calling for the border wall on the U.S.-Mexico border in El Paso, Texas, to be taken down, former Rep. Robert Francis “Beto” O’Rourke (D-TX) backtracked on Tuesday, saying he believes “there is a role for physical barriers in some places” along the U.S-Mexico border. “I think there are in some places a need for a physical barrier, and here’s what I would do: I would work with local stakeholders, the property owners, the communities, those who actually live there, to determine the best security solution,”…

Pollak: Trump Can Build ‘Wall’ Now, Despite States’ Lawsuit

President Donald Trump can likely begin building new sections of the border barrier, despite a federal lawsuit filed by California and 15 other states on Monday challenging the the national emergency declaration he issued Friday. The reason: only some — about $3.6 billion — of the roughly $8 billion Trump wants to spend on the barrier actually requires an emergency to be declared in order to be allocated. The rest, theoretically, can be spent regardless — especially the $1.4 billion Congress approved, though it is subject to some restrictions that may…

A crowd of about 400 protesters rallied in front of the White House on Monday, carrying signs that called President Donald Trump a racist and claimed a wall on the U.S. Border with Mexico is a symbol of the rise of white nationalism under this administration. One speaker, who works with Amnesty International, said the federal government is torturing migrants who are in custody after crossing the border into the United States.  “You all are proof that bridges are better than walls,” she said. “That love trumps hate.

U.S. Taxpayers Fund Border Walls in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Middle East

American taxpayers are continuing to fund border security measures and border walls in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Egypt, and Lebanon with President Trump’s signing of a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spending bill.

GOP Establishment Squirms After Trump’s Emergency Declaration

The GOP’s business-first wing is complaining about President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration, despite the agreement by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to support it. The pushback began immediately after Trump announced that he would sign the flawed 2019 border security budget because he got McConnell’s agreement to support the emergency declaration. The budget — which was negotiated by McConnell’s deputies — provides funds for only 55 miles of border wall. The budget also requires that gaps be built in the wall and gives Texas Democrats a temporary veto over construction. GOP Sen. Ron…
