    The U.K. tech sector is trying to encourage entrepreneurs affected by President Donald Trump’s immigration restrictions to move to the U.K. and start a company in a city like London..."Relocating to an EU member state would be the smarter move," said pro-EU campaigner Richard Scott on Twitter. "Citizenship grants you Freedom of Movement in 27 countries, allowing you and your children to study, work, start a business and retire wherever you like."
  • [Sen] Cornyn [RINO-TX] Embraces Amnesty After Supreme Court Ruling

    Texas Scorecard ^ | 6/18/1920 | Brandon Waltens
    After the United States Supreme Court upheld an Obama-era amnesty program, Republican U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (TX) says now is the time for a “permanent solution” to provide amnesty for an entire class of illegal aliens. Created in an executive order by then-President Barack Obama in 2012 after Congress declined to pass comprehensive immigration reform, DACA permitted some illegal aliens to remain in the United States and prevented law enforcement officials from deporting them. The lawless program was challenged by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and President Donald Trump as unconstitutional. In a 5-4 decision on Thursday, George W. Bush-appointed...

    This is one of the few cases I have seen where the amicus briefs make a much better case than the parties' briefs. In fact, the government's defense of DACA rescission has been so pathetic that one might suspect the deep state within DHS has been sabotaging Trump all along.

    The $3 trillion coronavirus relief package released by House Democrats this week includes protections for illegal immigrants who work in jobs declared “essential” -- a move that Republicans are blasting as an attempt at “amnesty.” The mammoth bill includes a section on page 1,737 on “temporary protections for essential critical infrastructure workers.”

    The $3 trillion coronavirus relief package released by House Democrats this week includes protections for illegal immigrants who work in jobs declared “essential” — a move that Republicans are blasting as an attempt at “amnesty.” The mammoth bill includes a section on page 1,737 on “temporary protections for essential critical infrastructure workers.” That section of the bill allows some illegal immigrants — who are “engaged in essential critical infrastructure labor or services in the United States” — to be placed into “a period of deferred action” and authorized to work if they meet certain conditions. It also grants protections to...

    Bristol County (Mass.)

I can think of nothing more inhumane than letting dangerous people wander around our neighborhoods, based on a claim that maybe, just maybe they could contract COVID 19 in the detention center."

    Politico ^ | 05 March 2020 | ANITA KUMAR and MARIANNE LEVINE
    The Supreme Court could soon overturn the temporary protections for people who came to the country illegally as children. President Donald Trump will consider protecting Dreamers who came to the country illegally as children as part of a larger immigration deal later this year, thrusting the contentious issue into the heart of election season, according to five people familiar with the situation. Trump told Republican senators at the White House Thursday that he will punt on a proposal until after an upcoming Supreme Court ruling that could overturn the temporary protections for Dreamers the Obama administration implemented, known as the...
  • Horowitz: Senate Republicans looking to repeat 1986 amnesty, seeking President Trump’s support: Sources

    Senator Thom Tillis and other liberal Republicans are hell-bent on turning our rural communities into pipelines for cartel drug trafficking and criminal aliens. Rather than holding vote after vote on ridding our communities of sanctuary cities and dangerous criminal alien gangs and drug traffickers, liberal Republicans like Thom Tillis are working on, amazingly, more amnesty for illegal aliens. The North Carolina senator evidently doesn’t think that the Tar Heel State is turning blue like Virginia as quickly as he would like. He also believes that now that he lied about being tough on illegal immigration in order get Trump’s endorsement...

    In the 50 years since the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) was enacted, it has been regularly used to force most federal agencies to routinely consider the environmental implications of their actions. But there is one great exception. Despite the many environmental reviews conducted by federal agencies over 50 years, not one includes any examination of...the "actions" that permit large numbers of foreign nationals to enter and settle in the United States...

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott became the first in the nation to refuse to host refugees in his state, flexing the new veto the Trump administration created last year to give state and local officials a say in whether they become a destination for the migrants. More than 40 other governors, both Democrats and Republicans, have said they will accept refugees. But a swath of conservative states from Texas to Florida had held out, ahead of a deadline later this month. Mr. Abbott, a Republican, becomes the first to refuse — a major statement for a state that has accepted more...

    The U.S. government on Monday launched a pilot program to collect DNA from people in immigration custody and submit it to the FBI, with plans to expand nationwide. The information would go into a massive criminal database run by the FBI, where it would be held indefinitely. A memo outlining the program published Monday by the Department of Homeland Security said U.S. citizens and permanent residents holding a “green card” who are detained could be subject to DNA testing, as well as asylum seekers and people entering the country without authorization. Refusing to submit DNA could lead to a misdemeanor...

    It's overbroad, sets a bad precedent, and has nothing to do with defense I am trying to mix my analyses of the good and the bad amendments in S. 1790, the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2020 (NDAA 2020). I recently wrote about the bad (codification of the heretofore administrative practice of "parole in place") and the good (the removal of dangerous reporting requirements for our troops sent to the border). But the bad just seems to overwhelm the good, as section 7611 of NDAA, granting a generous amnesty to Liberian nationals, reveals. Sen. Jack Reed (D-R.I.), has...

    The critical language is hidden in the short section which apparently provides a modest immigration reward to foreign service members, saying: (b) Sense Of Congress.—It is the sense of Congress that— (1) parole in place reinforces family unity; (2) disruption to servicemembers must be minimized, in order to faithfully execute their objectives; (3) separation of military families must be prevented; -snip- The last line will be cited as legal authority for a future President to offer the “parole in place” to as many migrants as he might wish to provide, said Andrew:
