Trump 'victory' really about securing border

"Build That Wall!"The attorney for an immigration watchdog says a legal victory for President Trump is really a victory for Americans who want a secure southern border.

Last Friday, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to lift lower court injunctions against the president's national emergency declaration on the southern border. 

The ruling allows the White House to spend $2.5 billion of Pentagon funds on border wall construction projects while the case remains under appeal.

Arthur

Art Arthur, a resident fellow in law and policy at the Center for Immigration Studies, says the court handed Trump a “major victory” probably because the justices want a full hearing, not just an injunction that is the “final word” on the issue.

That victory, he adds, extends not to Trump’s political promises but also to Americans who witnessed the Obama administration add hundreds of miles of border barriers in the ongoing effort to fight the cartel-run drug trade.

“And yet all of a sudden it becomes toxic,” he says, “when Donald Trump touches it."

Tlaib balks when asked if Israel has right to exist

Tlaib, Rep. Tashida (D-Michigan)When pointedly asked if Israel has the right to exist, Muslim pro-Palestinian Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) balked and dodged the question, saying Israel “exists” to the “detriment” of Palestinians, but then conceded when asked again, insisting at the same time that Palestinians also have a right to human rights – somewhat disqualifying her answer.
