    On Monday, The American Bar Association’s House of Delegates passed a resolution demanding that Congress let undocumented immigrants practice law. The bar suggests that lawmakers should add this block of text to 8 U.S.C. 5 § 1621(d): "A state court vested with exclusive authority to regulate admission to the bar may, by rule, order, or other affirmative act, permit an undocumented alien seeking legal status to obtain a professional license to practice law in that jurisdiction". This wouldn’t require state courts to license undocumented lawyers, but it would make it clear that the federal government won’t get in the way....

    The Trump administration is readying for a crackdown on marijuana users under Attorney General Jeff Sessions. President Trump’s Task Force on Crime Reduction and Public Safety, led by Sessions, is expected to release a report next week that criminal justice reform advocates fear will link marijuana to violent crime and recommend tougher sentences for those caught growing, selling and smoking the plant. Sessions sent a memo in April updating the U.S. Attorney’s Offices and Department of Justice Department (DOJ) component heads on the work of the task force, which he said would be accomplished through various subcommittees. In the memo,...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday ordered the expansion of the government’s ability to seize suspects' property – a move that puts him at odds with members of his own party who have slammed the practice for years as ripe for abuse and a violation of civil rights.

    President Donald Trump and two of his key cabinet chiefs addressed the growing problem of the violent transnational MS-13 street gang on April 18, with Attorney General Jeff Sessions even saying the gang could qualify as a terrorist organization. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the gang could qualify as a terrorist organization. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly called MS-13 one of the greatest hazards the nation faces. And Trump sent out a tweet: “The weak illegal immigration policies of the Obama Admin. allowed bad MS 13 gangs to form in cities across U.S. We are removing them fast!”
  • Is It “Deeply Offensive” to Enforce the Law?

    It is, apparently, if the law relates to immigration. At Penn State, someone put up posters urging students and others to report violations of the immigration laws. This is the poster:Is it a civic duty to report illegal aliens? That is certainly a defensible position. In general, citizens should cooperate with law enforcement. But Penn State’s administration didn’t see it that way: “The posters are unsigned and appear to be designed to provoke anger, fear and hate. The university finds them deeply offensive,” Penn State said in a statement. Is enforcing the law really a sign of “anger, fear and...

    President Donald Trump signed three new executive orders Saturday to “restore public safety and protect law enforcement” while addressing rising crime rates in communities across the country. The president’s first executive order directed newly installed Attorney General Jeff Sessions to “develop a strategy to more effectively prosecute people who engage in crimes against law enforcement officers.” The second order established a task force led by Sessions with the purpose of reducing crime rates and restoring a sense of public safety. The third order cracked down on the “dismantling” of “transnational criminal organizations” by redirecting additional federal governments resources. The series...

    A statement posted to WhiteHouse.gov makes clear the Trump administration’s position that upholding the Second Amendment is part of supporting law enforcement. Under the heading, “Stand Up for Our Law Enforcement Community,” the statement says: One of the fundamental rights of every American is to live in a safe community. A Trump Administration will empower our law enforcement officers to do their jobs and keep our streets free of crime and violence. The Trump Administration will be a law and order administration. President Trump will honor our men and women in uniform and will support their mission of protecting the...

    On the campaign trail, Donald Trump cast himself as a law-and-order candidate who would always have the backs of local police, though he wouldn’t meddle in their affairs. On Friday, the White House website revealed that promise would be a pillar of his administration. Under the heading, “Standing Up For Our Law Enforcement Community,” the Trump administration promised a reduction in violent crime, a border wall to keep out illegal immigrants and “more law enforcement, more community engagement, and more effective policing.” The administration hinted at a crackdown on protests — “Our job is not to make life more comfortable...

    WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald J. Trump has selected Senator Jeff Sessions, a conservative from Alabama who became a close adviser after endorsing him early in his campaign, to be the attorney general of the United States, according to officials close to the transition. Mr. Sessions was also under consideration for secretary of defense, creating debate within the Trump transition team over which job he should fill. Mr. Sessions, a former prosecutor elected to the Senate in 1996, serves on the Judiciary Committee and has opposed immigration reform as well as bipartisan proposals to cut mandatory minimum prison sentences...

    A passerby carrying a concealed weapon shot and killed a criminal suspect who was attacking a sheriff’s deputy in Estero, Fla. Deputy Dean Bardes was pursuing a fleeing suspect in a 100 mph car chase down Interstate 75 when the suspect abruptly stopped, exited his car, and attacked Bardes after he did the same, acording to local WINK News. The suspect, whom the deputy says was armed, got the better of Bardes, who began crying for help. “The officer opened his door, and the guy got out and ran out and grabbed the officer out of his car and started...

    Above all, Hitler symbolized death and destruction; Trump symbolizes law and order, blue lives as well as black lives, and all lives, saving the country from enemies of safety and freedom from outside and from within Some otherwise intelligent and rational people continue to compare Donald Trump to Adolph Hitler even after the American people have elected Donald Trump to serve as their President. Love him or hate him, we Americans will now have to learn to understand him.

    Interracial homicides – black people who killed whites and whites who killed blacks – climbed to their highest levels last year since the election of President Barack Obama almost eight years ago, even as the proportion of so-called black-on-black killings dipped, according to the latest national crime figures from the FBI. ... The number of black people who killed whites and the number of whites who killed blacks climbed to levels not seen since 2008, accounting last year for their largest percentages of U.S. homicides of black and white victims since at least the start of the century, according to...

    Democrats, Jerry Brown and now Gavin Newsom want more gun-control. How will the Asians in South Sacramento react to that, since they've been left to fend for themselves? California’s capital city of Sacramento has a big problem: violent criminals are terrorizing Asian immigrants. City officials pride themselves on tolerance and diversity, but have responded with little more than political appeasement, leaving Asian communities afraid and vulnerable, and forcing them to take matters into their own hands. A recent report in the Sacramento Bee found a crime wave has swept over South Sacramento’s Asian neighborhoods. According to the city’s crime report...
