The Women for Trump organization was joined by ‘Angel Families’ from across America for an enormously important event this week, when both groups held a joint press conference in support of President Trump’s policies on immigration and national security.
“We want the President to know we are standing with him, we need him to stand strong and not back down,” said Amy Kremer – head of Women for Trump. “The Angel families and the families of those who have lost loved ones to opioids know first-hand the high cost of illegal immigration. Congress should hear their stories, understand the depths of their pain, and do the right thing and build the wall!”
The event -held February 13th– in Washington, DC featured Rep. Liz Cheney, Amy Kremer of Women for Trump, former Acting Director of ICE Tom Homan, and the family members of those directly impacted by illegal immigration across the nation.

BORDER CRISIS: Federal Agents Detained 27,518 Migrants in December Alone
President Trump highlighted the escalating crisis occurring along the US-Mexico border during his prime-time speech Tuesday night, with new data showing federal agents detained 27,518 migrants in December alone.
“Border Patrol agents apprehended 27,518 members of family units in December, the highest monthly total on record. That figure has steadily been climbing now for five months,” writes USA Today.
“Those caravan members, most of whom have been trying to exercise their legal right to request asylum in the U.S., contributed to a third straight month of more than 60,000 migrants being detained at U.S. ports of entry and arrested in the vast stretches of border in between,” adds the article.
Leading Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer flat-out refused to acknowledge the national security issue along the southern border Tuesday; saying President Trump had “manufactured a crisis” and was “stoking fear” for political purposes.

BORDER CRISIS: Federal Agents Discover ’60 FOOT TUNNEL’ Along US-Mexico Border
Federal Agents made a stunning discovery in southern Texas Thursday evening, finding a ’60 foot tunnel’ at the US-Mexico border used to smuggle people and drugs into the United States.
“Border Patrol agents discovered a 60-foot-long tunnel still in progress this week at the U.S.-Mexico border in South Texas,” writes Fox New Orleans. “It’s located in Hidalgo, along roughly the same stretch of the border that President Donald Trump personally visited earlier in January.”
“You’ve seen them on the news in Arizona and New Mexico and stuff like that, but I’ve never seen one in the (Rio Grande) Valley,” said one local politician. “That’s the first one I’ve seen in our backyard.”
“It’s got 4-by-4 and plywood, on both sides and top; 4-by-4s about two, three feet apart all the way in,” he added. “I mean, it’s pretty stout.”
