  • Soros’s Smear Scripts

    A radical group linked to rogue billionaire George Soros has been providing scripts containing anti-Trump talking points for constituents to read aloud during congressional town hall meetings. One of the scripts distributed by the Revolutionary Love Project encourages town hall participants meeting with their member of Congress to accuse the Trump administration of – wait for it – “xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia.” Constituents are urged to use those precise words to “forcefully condemn” President Trump’s immigration and border security initiatives, Aaron Klein reports at Breitbart News. Information about the scripts came as leaked audio from anti-Trump activists associated with the...

    All illegals should be deported including DACA. Before judging Trump, envision what would happen once mass deportations started. Nightly videos of tearful Joey or sheepish Maria handcuffed with crocodile tears and begging to stay. Trump would be neutered because neither party supports upholding the law. Moderate voters would jump ship. And all politicians would finally have the justification they've been seeking to never work with Trump on anything for the next 3 years. Republicans have proven they will not move legislation already. For those believing Trump is a dupe based on daily tested and measured propaganda, they probably also believe...
  • House Agrees To $1.6 Billion For Border Wall

    The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill Thursday that will provide $1.2 trillion to fund the government past Sept. 30, and will allocate $1.6 billion towards President Donald Trump’s border wall. The legislation gives $658.1 billion to the Department of Defense, $44.3 billion for the Department of Homeland Security and allocates the rest of the money towards other federal agencies. The bill lops all 12 annual spending bills into two one piece of legislation. If Congress failed to act by the Sept. 30 deadline, portions of the government would be forced to shut down and all non-essential government employees...

    llegal immigration across the southwest border has doubled in the last four months, according to new government data that suggests the early gains of President Trump’s tenure are wearing off. More than 30,000 illegal immigrants were nabbed in August, up 22 percent compared to July and up nearly 100 percent compared to April, when fewer than 16,000 illegal immigrants were arrested by the Border Patrol or stopped at ports of entry by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers. The numbers are still lower than they were a year before under Mr. Obama, but the gains Mr. Trump made in his...

    A proposed bill would still prohibit state and local police in California from asking about people's immigration status or enforcing federal immigration lawsCalifornia Gov. Jerry Brown and the state Senate leader said Monday they've agreed to changes in proposed legislation that would further restrict interactions between law enforcement officers and federal immigration agents. The agreement came on the same day the state sued the Trump administration over its decision to end a program that shields young immigrants from deportation. Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, agreed to changes demanded by Brown following fierce opposition from sheriffs and...
  • A Chance for Congress to Get its Mojo Back

    09/11/2017 10:03:15 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 6 replies ^ | September 11, 2017 | Jeff Jacoby
    When President Trump last week started a six-month countdown clock to end his predecessor's executive order protecting immigrants who were brought illegally to America when they were children, the denunciations came fast, furious, and fevered. Angry outrage has become the standard reaction to almost everything Trump says and does, often with reason. But on the issue of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, that fury is misplaced. Trump has created an opening that should gladden conservatives and liberals alike — one that members of Congress on both sides of the aisle should exploit.For years, legislators have allowed presidents to...

    FORT WORTH, Texas — Jaime Carrillo emerges from his faded pink house wearing blue jeans, boots, and a black cowboy hat. After a long day at work laying cement for city streets, he is ready for a second shift — this time as a volunteer for the Fort Worth Police Department. He straps a walkie-talkie to his collar, slaps a “Citizens on Patrol” sticker on the side of his blue Nissan Sentra, and settles in the driver’s seat, hands gripping the steering wheel decorated with his daughter’s Hello Kitty decals. “Tigre, Tigre,” Carrillo calls into the radio, addressing his partner....

    DACA has long been seen by those vociferously opposed to illegal immigration as Obama’s greatest betrayal of the American people—it is de facto amnesty. For those not familiar with DACA, here is the run-down: DACA was an executive order signed by President Obama in June 2012 that allowed all illegal aliens who arrived in America before they were aged 16 to apply for legal work permits, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, and made them eligible for earned income tax credits. Enrollment must be renewed every two years. Since 2012, nearly 800,000 illegal aliens have taken advantage of DACA. Most of...

    The Atlantic ^ | July/August 2017 | Peter Beinart
    The myth, which liberals like myself find tempting, is that only the right has changed. In June 2015, we tell ourselves, Donald Trump rode down his golden escalator and pretty soon nativism, long a feature of conservative politics, had engulfed it. But that’s not the full story. If the right has grown more nationalistic, the left has grown less so. A decade ago, liberals publicly questioned immigration in ways that would shock many progressives today. In 2005, a left-leaning blogger wrote, “Illegal immigration wreaks havoc economically, socially, and culturally; makes a mockery of the rule of law; and is disgraceful...

    More than three-quarters of Americans surveyed think that beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program should be allowed to stay in the United States, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll. Seventy-six percent of respondents said the government should allow immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children to remain. 58 percent of that 76 percent believe they should be able to become citizens if they meet certain requirements, while 18 percent said they should be allowed to become legal residents. Only 15 percent of respondents said such immigrants — commonly called "Dreamers" — should be deported, the...

    In his first extensive interview since leaving the Trump administration, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is speaking out about President Trump's decision to end the DACA program. The Obama-era policy protects nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children from deportation. Bannon spoke to Charlie Rose in an interview that will air this Sunday, Sept. 10, on "60 Minutes." Steve Bannon: Look, what he did on DACA the other day. Okay, I don't agree with that DACA decision, but I understand how he struggled with it, I understand how he's giving the possibility of a...

    Whenever a Republican wants to move forward — you know, pass some legislation or even enforce the law as already written, they always, always, ALWAYS have to run through a mainstream media propaganda gauntlet dedicated to the status quo, loyal only to the Democrat cause and by extension opposed to anything resembling progress. Obamacare is an objective disaster; nonetheless, the media fights tooth and nail to save it. Our tax code is a backwards, prosperity-stifling haven for corporatist special interests; nonetheless, the media will do everything in its power to ensure not a single word is altered. Then there is...

    Voters in 11 battleground states key to controlling the Senate in 2018 and presidency in 2020 overwhelming support the administration's effort to end so-called "sanctuary" policies for illegal immigrant criminals in over 300 cities, according to a new poll on the explosive issue. Even more significantly, over 83 percent of Hispanics want the sanctuaries to obey federal demands to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement and turn over illegals sought for deportation, according to the survey from the Federation for American Immigration Reform. ***snip*** According to FAIR, over 77 percent of voters in the 11 states want the Senate to...

    As the decision nears regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive action by President Obama, one question has never been asked or answered by the activists or media supporting them: why is the law against illegal immigration being blamed and not the illegal alien parents who brought them to the United States? This is something "parents with DACA" should have wrestled with BEFORE they decided to violate the United States' sovereign border because they wanted to, assumed they were wanted her, and shortsightedly put their children in the legal limbo they find themselves in today.

    Tax credits received by illegal immigrants and wage write offs US companies claim in their illegal employment costs the Treasury $296 billion over 10 years, according to a new report that is urging Congress to crack down on loopholes. Annually, according the Center for Immigration Studies, the lost taxes bill amounts to $30 billion, enough to fund the average middle income tax cut the Trump Administration is considering, about $300.

    The killing of a Santa Rosa woman by an undocumented immigrant two weeks ago has exposed a constitutional feud between federal and county governments over the detention of immigrants at the Sonoma County Jail. The dispute stems from the release of a Guatemalan national, Nery Israel Estrada- Margos, 38, who bailed out of the jail Aug. 3, a day after being booked on domestic battery charges. While in custody, Estrada- Margos’ fingerprints matched those in an Immigration and Customs Enforcement database. The federal agency sent an immigration detainer request to jail officials, asking them to hold Estrada-Margos for up to...

    The defenders of former President Barack Obama’s DACA amnesty are touting a rigged study to claim economic benefits from the controversial policy. The study shows post-amnesty wage gains for illegals, but it is based on a skewed sample of relatively successful DACA illegals who were identified by advocacy groups. For example, one-third of the people in the study sample who are older than age 25 hold four-year college bachelors’ degrees or better. In contrast, an August 2013 report by the pro-amnesty Migration Policy Institute showed that only 7.5 percent of the 800,000 DACA-qualified illegals who were 18 or older had...

    Anne Arundel County Circuit Court Judge Larua Kiessling said, from the bench, she received many letters about the case expressing concern about the “current political climate” where President Trump has been “harshly critical of illegal immigration and of Mexico in particular,” the Capital Gazette reported. The judge said it is “reasonable to conclude” that the defendant, Martin Martinez-Ballinas, would flee the scene out of fear of being deported. “I’m not going to sentence based on the political environment,” Keissling told the courtroom. Maryland defense attorney Kush Arora told Breitbart Texas that Martinez-Ballinas’s fear does not matter as to guilt or...

    A radical Muslim cleric who masterminded two terror attacks in Spain last week narrowly dodged deportation following a drug-smuggling bust there — by crying that his removal would violate his rights. Imam Abdelbaki Es Satty radicalized the young men accused of killing 15 people and wounding more than 120 in two Spanish cities according to court testimony from one of the terror-cell’s four suspected surviving members in Madrid Tuesday. The 45-year-old Es Satty spent four years in Spanish prison for smuggling hashish between his native Morocco and Spain in 2010, according to the UK Telegraph. While there, he spent time...

    The closed-door session between Phoenix Police Chief Jeri Williams and Will Goana, policy director for the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Arizona, occurred just weeks before the Phoenix Police Department quietly implemented a new policy banning officers from contacting the feds after arresting an illegal alien and forbidding them from asking about suspects’ immigration status. The new order violates key provisions of a state law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court and leaves the city vulnerable to costly lawsuits. Judicial Watch exposed the abrupt policy revision last month after obtaining a copy of the Phoenix Police Department’s new sanctuary...
