“Presidents Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan both closed the border over drug-related issues that halted entry from Mexico into the United States,” Lucas reports. “With Nixon in 1969 and Reagan in 1985—as is the case today—the United States was trying to pressure the Mexican government’s law enforcement into stepping up its efforts.”

“President Donald Trump is correct on nationalism,” Boris Epshteyn writes in USA Today. Not only has putting America first on the world stage produced real wins for the country, but “being a nationalist is to correctly believe that America is a beacon of freedom and is the greatest country in the world. These are sentiments all Americans should want to get behind.”
"President Donald Trump and I both saw the devastation of the fire on our recent trips to California: piles of rubble recognizable as houses only by their chimneys and charred appliances, and vehicles melted to the pavement in pools of molten aluminum. We also saw the heroism of firefighters, first responders and volunteers working together to battle the blaze and help the community," Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke writes.
A senior official in the U.S. Border Patrol backed up President Trump’s call for a border wall following a dangerous incident near the San Ysidro Port of Entry this weekend. "Absolutely,” Brian Hastings told The Hill when asked if agents wanted a wall. “It’s important to note that we have 2,000 arrests per day besides the caravan. That's everyday business right now for us. We're very busy. This caravan just adds another component or another challenge to what we do daily.”
"The new version of the First Step Act, endorsed by President Trump last week, is that rarest of Washington happenings: a compromise bill that actually raises the bar rather than settling for the lowest common denominator," workforce development expert Brent Orrell writes for the American Enterprise Institute. The bill will bring "reforms that serve the twin goals of justice and rehabilitation.”
