The Dakota Pipeline protesters seem to have run out of luck. One lesson seems to be, Be very careful who you let into the country. At least, that seems to be the marching orders for the Secretary of Homeland Security. It looks like he’s ready to get started on that wall to the south. United States Customs and Border Patrol
“shall immediately begin planning, design, construction and maintenance of a wall, including the attendant lighting, technology (including sensors), as well as patrol and access roads, along the land border with Mexico…”

Did you know there’s a map
of hate groups in the United States? (There’s also a report
