    House leadership has pulled legislation from the floor that would have repealed President Trumps prior travel bans, amid efforts to focus attention on a coronavirus response bill, Fox News has learned. Democrats made the decision late Wednesday to delay a vote on the No Ban Act to make way for new legislation to help families affected by the virus, said Benjamin Suarato, spokesman for bill sponsor Rep. Judy Chu, D-Calif. That bill is in limbo amid GOP opposition. The House, meanwhile, had debated the legislation on Wednesday that was the Democrats response to Trump's crackdown that he pledged during the...

This evening the President stopped travel from Europe except the UK since Europe did not institute China travel bans and are in much worse shape than we are. Europeans coming into the United States and spreading the illness. While the spreading of Wuhan Virus continues,...

    The Trump administration will deploy 160 active-duty soldiers to two cities adjacent the U.S.-Mexico border. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on Friday said it would deploy 80 active-duty soldiers to San Diego's San Ysidro border and 80 troops to El Paso's Paso del Norte bridge as soon as Saturday to aid customs officials at entry points, according to USA Today. The decision comes as the administration requests the Supreme Court to uphold the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) or "Remain in Mexico" policy after a lower federal district court in California ruled against the plan last April, saying it violates...

    In a torturous, twisted interpretation of federal immigration law, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a preliminary court order Friday to block the Trump administration from continuing to implement its Migrant Protection Protocols, known informally as the Remain-in-Mexico policy. But shortly after issuing the ruling, the three-judge panel voted 2-1 to put a hold on it, preventing it from going into force until the federal government can file written arguments by the end of Monday in favor of the Remain-in-Mexico policy and plaintiffs can respond by the end of Tuesday arguing in favor of...

    President Donald Trump is reportedly furious after underlings at the State Department decided to fly 14 Diamond Princess passengers who tested positive for coronavirus back to the U.S. without telling him, and against his wishes. Trump had been told last Saturday that only evacuees who didn't have symptoms or positive test results would be allowed on State Department charter planes back to the US from Japan, according to the Washington Post. Officials on the ground realized late in the evacuation process, on the airport tarmac in Tokyo, that 14 of the roughly 350 evacuees had tested positive for the virus....

After nine U.S. citizens were killed in the Mexican border state of Sonora in November, President Donald Trump threatened to label cartels terrorist organizations. When it came to it, however, he holstered the executive pen and backpedaled out of the saloon at the request of Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who desires to embrace the cartels with “abrazos no balazos”—hugs not bullets.Now comes word that a 13-year-old Oklahoma...
