Trump’s appearance at March for Life meant ‘everything’ to marchers, Rachel Campos-Duffy says

President Trump’s decision to attend the 47th-annual March for Life in Washington D.C. on Friday “bodes well for him in 2020” with pro-life voters, Fox Nation host Rachel Campos-Duffy said Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with hosts Griff Jenkins, Lisa Boothe, and Pete Hegseth, Campos-Duffy said the president’s appearance meant “everything” to the pro-life marchers.

“They have been so ignored for so long on that march and here comes the president, really edifying them,” she said.

PRESIDENT TRUMP ON WHY HE ATTENDED MARCH FOR LIFE RALLY: ‘RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IS UNDER SIEGE’

Trump became the first sitting president to both attend and address the march. In 2018, he spoke to the crowd of 100,000 over a video message.

The president, who for years was pro-choice, has since embraced a pro-life position and made clear on Friday that he plans to continue that agenda as he seeks reelection in November.

In an interview backstage on Friday, he told Campos-Duffy that he recognized that the pro-life movement has been “under siege” for a long time.

“And, I said, ‘You know, I’m in Washington. Maybe I will just — instead of making a tape, I will go over,'” he said. “Now I didn’t know this was going to be this big of a deal, but they have a lot of people out there. And, it turned out to be very successful. The most successful one by far.”

“We want to do what we feel is right,” said Trump.

‘The fact that President Trump came here sent an incredibly strong message that he has not only been a great president, [but] maybe the most pro-life president ever in policy…the fact that he is standing here side-by-side with these tens of thousands of people…” Rep. Steve Scalise, R-La., remarked backstage on Friday.

During his address, the president told an uproarious crowd that unborn children have “never had a stronger defender in the White House.”

“Every life brings love into this world. Every child brings joy to a family. Every person is worth protecting,” he added.

The president also panned Democrats’ stances on abortion as “extreme,” accusing many of supporting “taxpayer-funded abortion all the way up until the moment of birth.”

“I think the most important he says in that speech was he said ‘they are coming after me because I’m fighting for you,'” Campos-Duffy remarked, noting that it was likely a reference to the impeachment trial in the Senate.

” I think he completely has their love and gratitude and joy [and] has their vote,” she said. “When I looked at that crowd, I also realized he recruited an army of volunteers because — again — they felt so grateful that he acknowledged them in such a  bold move.”

“It’s never been done before,” Campos-Duffy concluded

Angel Mom: Dems won’t fight for their fellow Americans because of their ‘illegal criminal first agenda’

Angel families are tired of being ignored by Democrats who have an apparent “illegal criminal first agenda”, Angel mom Mary Ann Mendoza said Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with host Lisa Boothe, Mendoza said the list of angel families is growing daily in the United States because Democrats continue to support illegal immigrants, provide them with sanctuary from immigration officials and provide them with benefits that even American citizens don’t get.

“And, quite frankly, we are all sick of being ignored by Democrats,” she remarked, adding that she is “pretty disgusted that our loved ones have become collateral damage in their illegal criminal first agenda that they have got going on.”

Mendoza’s son Brandon — a Mesa, Arizona police officer — was killed in 2014 after his police car was hit by an intoxicated illegal immigrant.

TOM HOMAN HITS BACK AT BIDEN FOR REMARK ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS ARRESTED FOR DUI: HE’S ‘LOST HIS MIND’

Earlier this week, 2020 Democratic frontrunner and former vice president Joe Biden said his administration would fire Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents who arrest and deport illegal immigrants arrested for driving drunk. He said he doesn’t “count drunk driving as a felony.”

At a Vice News forum on minority issues in Des Moines, Iowa on Monday night, Biden said he wants to change the fact that children of illegal immigrants live in fear that their parents will be arrested and deported.

“They go off to school wondering whether their mom comes and picks them up, is she not going to be there because an ICE agent was there to arrest her,” he said.

“You know, there are tens of thousands of innocent American victims who have been killed by illegal alien drunk drivers in this country,” Mendoza replied. “Over 80,000 DUIs illegal aliens arrested by ICE in one year. That doesn’t even count the additional 76,000 other traffic violations that they have done.”

“So, they’re dangerous drivers. They have a tendency to drive drunk,” she continued. “They don’t realize, you know, they don’t assimilate to our society and know this isn’t what you do.”

“We cannot allow the Democrats to take control of the administration or have the majority in the House or the Senate because [this] ‘open borders: everybody come into our country’ mentality that they have is what is going to continue,” she told Boothe.

“Like I said, they are enticing this invasion into our country because they know they are going to be provided sanctuary from our laws,” Mendoza commented.

“Once they cross our border and they arrive in our overburdened detention centers and they start complaining about the conditions, they know the Democrats will take up the fight for them. But, they will not fight for their fellow Americans who have become victims of illegal alien crime in their country,” she concluded.

Nigel Farage on Prince Harry, Meghan Markle no longer using royal titles: Queen ‘acted decisively’

Westlake Legal Group mexit- Nigel Farage on Prince Harry, Meghan Markle no longer using royal titles: Queen 'acted decisively' Talia Kaplan fox-news/world/world-regions/united-kingdom fox-news/world/personalities/queen fox-news/world/personalities/british-royals fox-news/topic/royals fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/person/prince-harry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news/meghan-markle fox news fnc/media fnc article 2b63ccea-25e3-58c5-915c-47dc3a501f75

Former United Kingdom Independence party leader Nigel Farage, who helped launch the Brexit campaign in the U.K., weighed in Sunday on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s “Megxit” plan and Queen Elizabeth’s reaction, saying he worries about Harry’s future.

“If you’re in the royal family, you’re in what’s called ‘the firm,’” Farage said on “Fox & Friends Weekend.” “You live in a nice house, you spend much of your life in royal palaces and elsewhere, you got full security, full transport, cars, helicopters, you name it. And, in return for all of that and in return for being royal and his or her royal highness, you have to carry out engagements.”

He said those engagements may include ribbon cuttings and charity events.

“You cannot live that life and tout yourself for voice-overs for Disney, and that is what Harry and Meghan did,” Farage said, referencing the announcement earlier this month that Markle, 38, had signed a deal with Disney to provide a voiceover for an upcoming project from the studio in exchange for a donation to a non-profit helping elephants in Botswana.

“On a personal level, we all want them to be happy, but you cannot commercialize the royalty,” Farage said. “The Queen saw what huge damage that could do, she has acted decisively and we are very, I must say, very, very lucky to have this Queen. She is a quite amazing woman.”

PRINCE HARRY, MEGHAN MARKLE WILL NO LONGER USE ROYAL TITLES, QUEEN AND BUCKINGHAM PALACE ANNOUNCE

Farage referenced Queen Elizabeth and Buckingham Palace releasing much-anticipated statements on Saturday confirming Harry and Meghan no longer would use their royal titles and will move forward with their initial “Megxit” plan in the spring of 2020.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are grateful to Her Majesty and the Royal Family for their ongoing support as they embark on the next chapter of their lives. As agreed in this new arrangement, they understand that they are required to step back from Royal duties, including official military appointments. They will no longer receive public funds for Royal duties,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement on the official royal family website.

The palace continued: “With The Queen’s blessing, the Sussexes will continue to maintain their private patronages and associations. While they can no longer formally represent The Queen, the Sussexes have made clear that everything they do will continue to uphold the values of Her Majesty.

“The Sussexes will not use their HRH [His or Her Royal Highness] titles as they are no longer working members of the Royal Family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared their wish to repay Sovereign Grant expenditure for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their U.K. family home,” the palace said.

Queen Elizabeth II simultaneously released a statement of her own voicing her support.

“Following many months of conversations and more recent discussions, I am pleased that together we have found a constructive and supportive way forward for my grandson and his family. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved members of my family,” she said.

The 93-year-old monarch added, “I recognize the challenges they have experienced as a result of intense scrutiny over the last two years and support their wish for a more independent life.”

“The British public did not like the idea of them trying to have it both ways,” Farage said on Sunday. “You cannot privatize or commercialize the monarchy and the Queen, she may be 93-years-old, but she’s been absolutely decisive.”

He added, “For Harry this raises big questions because not only is he leaving behind his family to go and live pretty much permanently on the West Coast, but he’s also leaving his second family.”

Farage said his second family was his military family.

“[When] Princess Diana [was] tragically killed when he was 12 years old, he has always found that difficult to grasp with and he then joined the army,” Farage said. “He’s spent ten years in the army. He did two active tours of Afghanistan. He now holds some very prestigious military titles.”

Pam Bondi on what to expect from Senate impeachment trial: We’re ‘all ready to put this behind us’

Westlake Legal Group Pam-Bondi- Pam Bondi on what to expect from Senate impeachment trial: We're 'all ready to put this behind us' Talia Kaplan fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/politics/trump-impeachment-inquiry fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc article 4e02df7e-95b6-5363-b369-001e56e10b83

Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi talked Sunday about what to expect from the Senate impeachment trial set to begin Tuesday, adding that “everyone” — including President Trump and the American people — is ready to “put this behind us.”

Bondi, one of the lawyers on Trump’s defense team,  appeared on “Fox & Friends Weekend” one day after House impeachment managers filed their brief to the Senate, claiming the evidence against Trump “overwhelmingly” establishes his abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.

“What they’re [Democrats are] doing to President Trump, all these things they’ve been saying, we all know they’ve been trying to impeach him before he was sworn into office,” Bondi said.

“And he’s a clear and present danger, they say, to the country yet they hang onto these articles of impeachment,” she added. “[House Speaker] Nancy Pelosi was impeaching him before the articles were even sent over … “

“And that’s what the American people need to remember and need to understand,” Bondi said.

PELOSI HANDS OUT SOUVENIR PENS, DEMS SLAMMED FOR GLOATING AS HOUSE DELIVERS TRUMP IMPEACHMENT ARTICLES

Bondi noted that Pelosi, D-Calif., withheld the articles of impeachment against Trump for one month after the House voted to adopt two articles of impeachment against the president even though Democrats initially argued that Trump’s alleged conduct warrants serious and urgent attention.

Pelosi, after the vote, said she wanted assurances that the Senate would hold a fair trial before sending the articles.

Bondi also referred to the fact that Pelosi handed out commemorative pens — with her name on them — on Wednesday after she signed a resolution transmitting the articles of impeachment to the Senate for trial.

To critics, the tone of the event seemed celebratory — a far cry from the December day when the House voted to impeach Trump. On that occasion, Pelosi wore black and insisted on the House floor it was a “solemn” day.  She even cut short two rounds of cheers from Democrats when the articles were adopted.

In Saturday’s 111-page brief the impeachment managers wrote, “President Trump’s conduct is the Framers’ worst nightmare.”

The brief is the Democrats’ opening salvo in the historic impeachment trial, with House managers outlining their case against the president, arguing that Trump used his official powers to pressure Ukraine to interfere in the 2020 U.S. presidential election for personal political gain, then attempted to cover up his scheme by obstructing Congress’s investigation into his alleged misconduct.

“The evidence overwhelmingly establishes that he is guilty. … The Senate must use that [impeachme n t] remedy now to safeguard the 2020 U.S. election, … protect our constitutional form of government and eliminate the threat that the President poses to America’s national security,” the brief states.

In response, Bondi said Sunday, “The national security part was by far the most offensive.”

U.S.-CHINA PHASE ONE TRADE DEAL: 7 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW

“Look at what our president has done to protect our country every day, taking out [Iranian top general Qassem] Soleimani, everything that he’s doing. Look at the trade deal he just did with China,” Bondi said. “He’s working tirelessly for us while they’re saying these really absurd things that could not only damage him, but damage the country for centuries to come.”

“A threat to national security is just such an insult to the American people’s intelligence because they know all the great things president Trump has done,” Bondi added.

As for whether any witnesses should be called during the trial, Bondi said that would be “up to the U.S. Senate.”

Bondi then outlined what to expect in the coming days.

She said opening arguments by both sides will likely go through the weekend, with the trial formally starting Tuesday in the Republican-majority Senate.

“We don’t know the structure completely yet because that’s up to the U.S. Senate to decide –the hours and the time frame, which will start at 1 p.m. every day.”

If witnesses are allowed, Bondi said: “We are fully prepared.”

Bondi said impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., made himself a potential witness by “talking about his opening statement, talking about the phone call with President Trump and [Ukrainian] President [Volodymyr] Zelensky, where he lied about what was in the phone call.”

“That was ridiculous,” she said. “Then we find out when he says he has no contact with the whistleblower that his office was completely coordinating with the whistleblower.”

“So that’s how this sham got started and that’s how it’s continued, but right now I think we’re all ready, all of us, the American people, President Trump, everyone, to put this behind us,” Bondi added.

Schiff has denied having contact with the whistleblower and said his recap of Trump’s phone call was intended as parody.

New Hampshire governor on competitive Democratic primary: ‘Grab the popcorn’

The early voting “circus” in New Hampshire will culminate in a nail-biting presidential primary and serve as a prelude to a contentious Democratic National Convention, New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu predicted Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with host Jason Chaffetz, Sununu told viewers to “grab the popcorn” because it’s “going to be fun to watch.”

TRUMP EYEING RETURN TO NEW HAMPSHIRE ON EVE OF PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY

Sununu, a Republican, said Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders will do well in the Democratic primary, but voters will reject Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren because of her “phoniness.”

He added that South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg will be trying to “find a way back into the mix as best he can,” while former Vice President Joe Biden will “do better than most people think.”

Sununu said he believes it will be a tight race in his “purple state” right down to the wire for the top four candidates.

However, he believes candidates “pushing this socialist, progressive agenda” are “placating and just saying whatever they think the crowd wants to hear.”

“At the end of the day,” Sununu said,”it’s going to really hurt them come November, which is why the president is going to win. Not just here in New Hampshire, but nationally, because they’re not going to be able to come back to this middle ground. No one is going to buy it.”

He also predicted “the bloodiest, knock-down, drag-out, WWE-style Democratic Convention” this summer, “where you’re going to get these social progressives who have no ability to compromise … trying to figure out how they wedged themselves against the more moderate candidates.”

Denver misleading public by ignoring subpoenas on detained illegal immigrants: ICE official

The city of Denver is misleading the public in its strategy to prevent U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from obtaining information on illegal immigrants, ICE Deputy Executive Associate Director for Enforcement and Removal Operations Henry Lucero claimed Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with hosts Jason Chaffetz, Pete Hegseth, and Rachel Campos-Duffy, Lucero said his agency issued four immigration subpoenas on Monday demanding information about three individuals that have been released and one that remains in custody. He said Friday’s deadline to respond to their subpoenas flew by.

“The city of Denver failed to respond to ICE and provide that information. So, we’re going to take it to the next level and seek a district court order from a district judge,” said Lucero.

ICE SHAMES OHIO COUNTY FOR RELEASING CONVICTED SEX OFFENDER, DOZENS OF OTHER CRIMINAL ALIENS

In a statement following the subpoenas, Ryan S. Luby, the public information officer for Denver’s attorney’s office responded to ICE’s allegations, saying that the requests were honored.

“ICE officials contacted Denver to request jail release notifications involving four inmates. Contrary to what ICE is saying, we honored three of those requests for the three inmates released at that time. We will honor the request for the fourth inmate when he is released,” said Luby. “Denver subsequently received administrative subpoenas from ICE…Denver does not comply with subpoenas unless they are Court-ordered or unless they are primarily related to a criminal investigation. Our immigration ordinance fully complies with federal law.”

Lucero said that while the city of Denver may notify ICE the majority of the time, it’s by fax machine about five minutes prior to the individual’s release.

“They’re not allowing us to assume custody in their jails,” he added. They’re releasing them to the streets and ICE officers are presented — trying to make arrests outside that jail in sometimes chaotic situations,” he said.

“I say it’s another kind of strategy for the city of Denver to mislead the public,” he told the “Friends: Weekend” hosts. “That, if they would honor our immigration detainers, we wouldn’t be having this conversation.”

“We want to protect the public — not only in Denver but around the nation — from dangerous criminals being released every single day from jails and prisons around this country,” he stated.

Lawrence Jones: Liberal government policies only hurting Austin homeless crisis

Liberal policies and mismanagement of funds are factors further contributing to the homelessness crisis in Austin, Texas, Fox Nation host Lawrence Jones said Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with hosts Jason Chaffetz, Rachel Campos-Duffy, and Pete Hegseth, Jones said liberals who believe that the capital of the Lone Star State should be a welcoming community for all — even when it comes to the homeless population — don’t realize that “it’s a public safety crisis going on.”

“Not only do you have a health crisis with them leaving feces and needles everywhere, but [in] fact had a homeless person stab one of the citizens there,” he remarked. “And, you know, it’s been a rampage; there’s a lot of violence.”

REP. CHIP ROY: CALIFORNIA’S HOMELESS CRISIS COULD BE MIGRATING TO AUSTIN — HERE’S HOW TO TACKLE IT

In June 2019, city council members lifted a ban prohibiting camping, sitting, and lying in public spaces.

In response to the move, Republican Gov. Greg Abbott tweeted in frustration slamming the local government and threatening to override the new local ordinance.

“If Austin— or any other Texas city—permits camping on city streets it will be yet another local ordinance the State of Texas will override,” he tweeted. “At some point cities must start putting public safety & common sense first. There are far better solutions for the homeless & citizens.”

According to an Austin and Travis County Point In Time Survey from January 2019, there has been a five percent uptick in homelessness in Austin with 2,255 total homeless individuals currently residing there.

Jones told the “Friends: Weekend” hosts that while covering the crisis downtown, he saw people shooting up drugs and fighting each other.

“And, the police have essentially been told by the local councils to step back,” he added. “And so, [Gov. Abbott] said, ‘Look I have authority, right? I want local control…I live in Austin. This is where the capital is and I’m sending the state troopers in to clean this mess up.'”

“Unfortunately,” said Jones, “when they clean it up, the homeless people bring the stuff right back.”

Jones said the issues lies in the “poor management of funds” because it’s not the lack of funding.

“If anyone knows anything about Austin, they have a lot of money,” he said, noting that Texas is very business-friendly.

“But, the city council refuses to invest the right money to get this done. And, they prefer to take the easy way out,” he stated. ” It’s the same for San Francisco and L.A. as well,” he said. “They don’t have money problems. They just don’t know how to manage those funds to put those homeless people in the right place.

Former NFL player dons different uniform, lives childhood dream in Army

Former Arizona Cardinals defensive back Jimmy Legree said Saturday that his dream was always to serve his country as a soldier.

Legree, appearing on “Fox & Friends,” said he envisioned a career in the military from the time he was a child transfixed by war movies.

“I always wanted to be a part of that military family,” he said.

Legree, 28, started basic training at Fort Sill in Oklahoma in December after enlisting in the Army as a communications specialist. So far, he said, his transition from pro athlete to soldier has been a “good journey.”

“I’m excited to be here,” Legree said. “And excited to see what my future is going to be in the military lifestyle.”

Legree, a 2013 graduate of the University of South Carolina, said he hopes to bring dedication, a strong work ethic, resilience and focus to his budding military career.

He told “Fox & Friends” hosts Dean Cain and Pete Hegseth that he joined the Army to fight for his country.

“I always wanted that,” he said.

Legree was with the Cardinals in 2014 and 2015, when he made preseason appearances. He was previously signed by the Seattle Seahawks for a short time in 2014.

While some of his fellow soldiers rib him about his time in the NFL, jokingly asking for autographs, for the most part he’s just one of them.

“I’m not special or anything like that,” Legree said.

He is currently assigned to D Battery, 1st Battalion, 19th Field Artillery. He graduates from basic training on Feb. 21 and will then head to Fort Gordon in Georgia to learn more adanced skills.

Pelosi has ‘lost control’ of the House, knows she made a mistake withholding impeachment articles: Rep. Roy

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi damaged cross-party relations and ignored the needs of the American people by withholding articles of impeachment against the president from the Senate, Rep. Chip Roy, R-Texas, said Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends,” Roy accused Pelosi, D-Calif., of knowing “full well” she made a mistake in holding the articles, which passed in the House more than three weeks ago.

TRUMP SIGNALS HE’D SEEK TO BLOCK IMPEACHMENT TRIAL TESTIMONY FROM BOLTON, OTHERS IN EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW

“I think she had a strategic error, and she was trying to appease her [far] left base,” he said. “… Over the last year, what has she done for the American people, other than turning over the House of Representatives to the radical left and AOC, and those who are trying to reshape this country [with] a socialist agenda?”

“She’s lost control,” he added.

PELOSI: HOUSE WILL MOVE TO TRANSMIT IMPEACHMENT ARTICLES NEXT WEEK

On Friday, Pelosi announced she will take steps to send the articles to the Senate.

“I have asked Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler to be prepared to bring to the Floor next week a resolution to appoint managers and transmit articles of impeachment to the Senate. I will be consulting with you at our Tuesday House Democratic Caucus meeting on how we proceed further,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to colleagues.

Roy said Pelosi is backtracking on her earlier decision and trying to save face. She is “hoping for a last-minute reason” to justify why she held onto the articles for so long, he said.

“What we will see when it gets over to the Senate is that the case that they presented is very weak,” Roy said.

After months of listening to impeachment depositions as a member of the House Oversight Committee,  Roy said he came to the conclusion that there was “nothing there” that rises to  a high crime or misdemeanor under the Constitutiion.

“She wasted the time of the American people rather than focusing on what the American people care about around the kitchen table: health care costs, border security, our men and women in uniform, [and] our reckless spending,”  he said.

Brandon Judd: Border wall critics are ‘absolutely incorrect,’ calls court ruling ‘a great win’

Westlake Legal Group BRANDON Brandon Judd: Border wall critics are 'absolutely incorrect,' calls court ruling 'a great win' Julia Musto fox-news/us/military fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/us/crime/drugs fox-news/topic/border-wall fox-news/shows/fox-friends-weekend fox-news/politics/elections/campaigning/trump-2020-campaign fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/media fnc ca4b5a49-b9e0-5242-a456-f14d26dbee87 article

Critics of President Trump’s border wall are “absolutely incorrect” and a drop in illegal immigration and drug smuggling proves it, National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd said Saturday.

Judd, appearing on “Fox & Friends,” said the administration has developed a system that allows authorities to have better control of the border, preventing illegal crossings.

“Al of this new wall that we’re building is a huge deterrent and, frankly, it stops illegal drugs and criminal aliens from coming into the country,” he said.

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION MARKS 100 MILES OF BORDER WALL, VOWS ‘MANY MORE’ TO COME

The administration Friday marked the 100th mile of wall construction along the southern border, describing it as a “milestone achievement.”

Building a border wall was a major Trump campaign promise in 2016. He is now pledging to build 450 miles of new wall by the end of this year.

Those efforts were boosted Wednesday by a decision from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which allows the administration to use $3.6 billion in military funds for border wall construction.

The court reversed a lower court order that had stopped Trump, who declared a national emergency along the southern border in February 2019, from diverting the Defense Department money.  Opponents argued that pulling money that was approved by Congress to pay for the border wall is an abuse of power.

“Breaking News: The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals just reversed a lower court decision & gave us the go ahead to build one of the largest sections of the desperately needed Southern Border Wall, Four Billion Dollars,” the president tweeted Thursday. “Entire Wall is under construction or getting ready to start!”

“It’s a great win.” Judd said Saturday. “But, what’s interesting is we knew this was going to happen. We know that the lower courts are full of judicial activism. We know that the lower courts are constantly trying to stymie President Trump and all of his directives.”

Judd said that since border wall construction began illegal immigration and drug smuggling has declined. He challenged critics to go down to the border and see the progress for themselves.

“President Trump refuses to take ‘no’ for an answer,” he said. “He continues to push forward with his agenda.”
