    Donald Trump is criticized, often justly, for misstatements of facts and failure to understand the details of public policy. But in two of his most recent controversial actions, he has taken stands upholding the rule of law and undoing the lawless behavior of his most recent predecessor. The question now is whether the author of "The Art of the Deal" -- and congressional Republicans and Democrats -- can maneuver and compromise on these issues in ways that produce sensible public policy. The first action in question was Trump's Sept. 5 announcement that he would withdraw Barack Obama's Deferred Action for...

    Things got a little heated Monday when a group of young immigrants confronted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a pro-DACA press conference in San Francisco. Several dozen young immigrants shouted down the top House Democrat, following her recent conversations with President Donald Trump over the future of a program that grants many of them legal status. "We are immigrant youth, undocumented and unafraid," they chanted, taking over a scheduled press conference Pelosi, along with Reps. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman, organized to call for the immediate passage of the Dream Act, a federal proposal that offered many of the...

    U.S. Border Patrol agents recently made two separate arrests of juvenile recipients of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program for attempting to smuggle illegal aliens across the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, on Thursday published a press release detailing the arrests of two so-called "Dreamers," illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors who receive legal protections under DACA, who are nationals from Guatemala and Mexico. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> On October 4, 2017, Border Patrol agents arrested a juvenile attempting to smuggle two illegal aliens.

    A North Carolina teen who decapitated his mother and then walked outside carrying her head had murder charges against him dropped. Authorities dismissed the charge on Wednesday saying Oliver Funes-Machada isn't mentally competent to stand trial. "Specifically, could he appreciate the charges against him and participate in his defense," District Attorney Michael D. Waters said in a statement to WRAL. "The mental health professionals there determined he could not at this time." Funes-Machada, 19, was ordered by a judge to be committed to a state psychiatric hospital. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement previously said Funes-Machada, from Honduras, was in the...

    An illegal immigrant who participated in a House Democrats press conference on Wednesday complained about not being able to get a driver's license in the U.S. due to her lack of legal status."For an undocumented immigrant, not having a driver's license cuts our legs. You cannot work. You cannot take your children to school or the doctor," said Ingrid Vaca, who came to the U.S. in 2000. The Bolivian citizen complained about not being able to get more government assistance as an illegal immigrant and called on lawmakers to pass a clean Dream Act.Illegal immigrants in a number of progressive...

    The Sheriff’s Office in Greenville County, South Carolina, has confirmed that immigration services determined a man accused of shooting and killing a local high school girl was in the U.S. illegally. Officials arrested 19-year-old Daniel De Jesus Rangel Sherrer and charged him with the murder of 18-year-old Diana Martinez-Gonzalez, who was found shot to death last week in a patch of woods along the 400 block of Saluda Dam Road in Easley, South Carolina. Deputies said they received a call from a friend of the victim who was “frantic” over the crime, according to Fox Carolina. At a recent press...

    The Washington Compost ^ | October 9, 2017 | Ed O'Keefe and David Nakamura
    Some House Democrats are raising the specter of withholding support for must-pass spending legislation later this year in response to President Trump’s hard-line immigration proposals — meaning the fate of roughly 690,000 younger undocumented immigrants could become a major factor in negotiations to keep the government open after December. Democrats on Monday dismissed Trump’s calls to construct a wall along the entire length of the U.S.-Mexico border, crack down on “sanctuary cities” and seek ways to curb Central American migrants from illegally crossing into the country. But conservative Republicans insisted that such issues must be addressed before Congress considers offering...

    As Congress contemplates the next step for children who immigrated to this country illegally, a population of young immigrants who entered America legally is beginning to speak out. Not covered by the proposed DREAM Act, not eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, these children are unlike any other class of immigrants and probably have no chance to stay in the country as adults unless the federal government clears a decades-long backlog of applications. Nicknamed “H-4 Dreamers,” the children were brought to America from India with their parents on H-4, or dependent, visas. Until they turn 21, their status is...

    We barely had time to forget Rep. Luis Gutierrez's (D-IL) shameful attack on Chief of Staff John Kelly's military service, before he stuck his foot in his mouth again. President Trump released his new immigration demands Sunday night, informing Congress that any new deal must include funding for a border wall. In exchange for an extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the president wants to see a a crackdown on sanctuary cities, thousands more Customs and Border Patrol agents and progress on the border wall. As expected, Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi decried the...
  • Trump's Proposals for 'Dreamers' Deal Include Border Wall, Crackdown on Unaccompanied Minors

    U.S. President Donald Trump, who pledged to help protect young people known as "Dreamers" brought illegally to the United States as children, called on Sunday for money to fund a border wall to be part of any immigration deal. In a list of "principles" laid out in documents released by the White House, the Trump administration also pressed for a crackdown on unaccompanied minors who enter the United States, many of them from Central America. The plan, which was delivered to leaders in Congress on Sunday night, drew a swift rebuke from Democrats, who are seeking a legislative fix for...

    To hear the press tell it, President Trump is making unreasonable demands by asking for a deal to allow the illegal immigrants known as DREAMERS to stay in the U.S. In fact, he's making tradeoff demands so outrageous that no Democrat could possibly say yes to them. His real aim in asking for tradeoffs, must be to scupper the deal. Get a load of these headlines:

    Californians by a wide margin oppose sanctuary cities. A UC Berkeley study codified these findings for the reading public, as a nearly 80% of respondents from all political leanings opposed policies forbidding cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities. Why should anyone be surprised? These sanctuary city policies amount to nothing more than dangerous posturing from desperate, self-serving, predominantly Democratic politicians.SB 54, officially presented as “The California Values Act”, will bar essential contact between California law enforcement officers and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Normally, ICE issues detainers to local jails, and law enforcement officers release the names of...

    President Donald Trump, who pledged to work with Democrats to protect "Dreamers" — young people brought illegally to the United States as children — called on Sunday for money to fund a border wall and thousands more immigration officers to be part of any deal. Trump's list of immigration "principles," laid out in a document seen by Reuters, is likely to be a non-starter for Democrats, who are seeking a legislative fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that Trump ended last month. The proposal includes a crackdown on unaccompanied minors who enter the United States, many...

    The Trump administration released a list of hard-line immigration principles late Sunday that could threaten to derail a deal in Congress to allow of hundreds of thousands of younger undocumented immigrants to remain legally in the country. The administration's wish list includes the funding of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, a crackdown on the influx of Central American minors and curbs on federal grants to sanctuary cities, according to a document distributed to Congress and obtained by The Washington Post. The demands were quickly denounced by Democratic leaders in Congress who had hoped to forge a deal with President...

    President Donald Trump laid out his immigration principles for Capitol Hill on Sunday — a list of hardline policies that could seriously complicate the prospects of striking a deal with Democrats over the future of hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants. “The priority for Congress ought to be to save American lives, protect American jobs and improve the well-being of American communities. These reforms accomplish that,” a senior administration official told reporters on Sunday night. “They live up to the president’s campaign commitment to have an immigration system that puts the needs of hardworking Americans first.” The broad parameters...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) suggested during a hearing yesterday that a deal to give amnesty to roughly 800,000 illegal aliens shielded by an Obama-created program could be reached if it includes more border security and mandatory E-Verify. Grassley, considered an ally to President Trump’s populist, economic nationalist, “America First” agenda, said during the Senate hearing that any deal to give amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citzenship to the hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program must include more security at the U.S.-Mexico border. “First and foremost, any...
