Border Patrol agents from the El Paso Sector captured two more sex offenders and a felonious gang member who had crossed back into the United States after being previously deported. These arrests by Border Patrol agents prove the fallacy of not securing the border after deporting these criminals.

Agents working the Tornillo area in far West Texas came upon a fresh foot trail leading northward from the border. After tracking the border crossers, agents came upon a group of 12 illegal aliens who they believed crossed the border illegally. read more

Dear Bruce,

As a resident of North Carolina since 2003, I read with interest that you decided to cancel your April 10th concert in Greensboro because of HB2, the Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act.

In your statement you explained that, in your view, the bill is "an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress."

You added that it was time for you and your band "to show solidarity for those freedom fighters" (speaking of transgender activists), and you ended your statement with these powerful words: "Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry -- which is happening as I write -- is one of them. It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards." read more


"We will see the same thing among many women in the fall, if Hillary wins the Democratic nomination."

Are you just whistling in the dark or just totally ignoring the polls. Are you really comparing Obama's unfavorables with the Hillabeast's? There may be some Republican women who won't vote won't vote for Trump, but I can tell you they'll just stay home and will certainly not rush to vote for her.

"...you couldn't miss the emotion of blacks who had come to see Obama's first event in the city."

And now, I see much bigger crowds flocking to Bernie than flocking to Hillary..or have you not taken note of that?.
