After eight years of suffering from a lawless POTUS and his lawless Attorney Generals, we finally have an honorable man as AG who actually believes in the rule of law, the Constitution and protecting Americans from illegal alien criminals.

Mike Huckabee appeared with Greta van Susteren last night to discuss the recent controversy between Donald Trump and the Pope, who held a Mass at the Mexican border near El Paso and criticized Trump for his desire to build a security wall between Mexico and the United States.
As Hunter noted in 2011: “States and cities that refuse to thoroughly and consistently enforce federal immigration laws directly undermine our nation’s enforcement efforts. For many of these states and localities, despite maintaining sanctuary policies, SCAAP remains an available funding source for the purpose of paying salaries, overtime costs, bonuses and other things.”
“It may just be because out president doesn’t know enough about our history. I’m sure they didn’t teach it in Indonesia, but the fact is when he says nobody has done more to secure the border than I have, or words to that effect, it’s simply not true,” said Gohmert.
I get on my knees every night and thank God I live in a country people are trying to break into, not out of. Are there some people who come here with nefarious goals? Yes. But I would never besmirch all the people who come here.”
A secure border should not just be a priority, it should be a reality. That’s why the House Judiciary Committee passed the Michael Davis, Jr. In Honor of State and Local Law Enforcement Act (H.R. 1148), which is an updated version of the SAFE Act. This bill, which I co-sponsored, removes the President’s ability to unilaterally shut down immigration enforcement, and strengthens the interior enforcement of our immigration laws by allowing state and local governments to enforce federal immigration law.
Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) gave a powerful keynote speech before a crowd of conservatives at the Defending The American Dream convention in Dallas on Saturday. During his speech, he covered Obamacare, the lack of border security, and the threat that the Islamic State (ISIS) poses to American national security interests.
I am opposed to the president’s immigration policy because I believe immigrants deserve better. The direct cause of the border crisis that Texas is now forced to address is the president’s 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. In 2011, before this policy was enacted without approval from Congress, roughly 6,000 unaccompanied children were apprehended at the border; in 2014, with the policy in effect, an estimated 90,000 children will cross the border, many of them smuggled by vicious criminals.
Last week, the House of Representatives passed a bill to deal with border security that was supported by Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-TX), a GING-PAC endorsed lawmaker. The bill has now gone to the Senate, which is currently on a five week vacation and will undoubtedly be blocked by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). Still, the House has acted in good faith to pass legislation that is designed to block Obama’s plans to provide amnesty for millions of illegals and to provide funding directly to the National Guard for it’s defense of our national security on our southern border.
Last Sunday, U.S. Senator John Thune (R-South Dakota), Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, joined NBC’s “Meet the Press” to discuss the dysfunction Majority Leader Reid has created in the U.S. Senate, the ongoing conflict in Israel and Gaza, and the importance of acting now on the southern border. Excerpts of Thune’s interview are available below. On the House passing a border fix: “The House did pass a border security bill before they went out. The Senate has not.”
