    A disturbing new report obtained by Judicial Watch shows that the Obama administration has granted residency or asylum to 1,519 foreigners who supported terrorism at one time. Apparently, Obama’s Homeland Security chief determined that the recently admitted Islamists only participated in terrorist activities “while under duress.”The Obama administration unilaterally eased restrictions on asylum seekers with loose or incidental ties to terror and insurgent groups in 2014. Prior to that, the foreign nationals would have been banned from the country for supporting terrorist causes.Judicial Watch obtained the numbers from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services’ (USCIS) annual report to...

Several scenes later, the ad states that 'America is great' - a reference to Trump's slogan Make America Great Again! - as a workman climbs a ladder. The video clips are not of America, though,...

    In a major victory for President Barack Obama, Democratic Sen. Barbara Mikulski of Maryland announced support for the Iran nuclear deal Wednesday, providing the White House the votes it needs to prevent Republicans from scuttling the agreement. The announcement means that at least 34 senators -- the number required by the Constitution to sustain a veto -- will back Obama in vetoing a Republican resolution to disapprove of the deal. While majorities of both the GOP-controlled House and Senate are expected to vote against the agreement, supporters of the multinational accord that aims to curb Iran's nuclear weapons program are...

    Of the more than 2,200 people who received federal sentences for drug possession in fiscal year 2014, almost three-quarters of them were illegal immigrants, according to new data from the United States Sentencing Commission. Illegal immigrants also made up more than one-third of all federal sentences, that data said. The commission's data showed a slight decline in the total number of illegal alien sentences from 2013 to 2014, but still showed that the illegal population is a major contributor to federal crimes in America. In 2013, illegal immigrants were responsible for 38.6 percent of all federal sentencing, and that dropped...
