    President Trump has decided to remove Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, and her departure from the administration is likely to occur in the coming weeks, if not sooner, according to five current and former White House officials. Trump canceled a planned trip with Nielsen this week to visit U.S. troops at the border in South Texas and told aides over the weekend he wants her out as soon as possible, these officials said. The president has grumbled for months about what he views as Nielsen’s lackluster performance on immigration enforcement and is believed to be looking for a replacement who...

    President Trump is planning to oust Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as early as this week, The Washington Post reported on Monday. Five current and former White House officials told the Post that Trump is planning to remove Nielsen as soon as possible. White House chief of staff John Kelly is reportedly fighting the president on the matter, hoping to keep Nielsen in place. Kelly hired Nielsen as his chief of staff while DHS secretary and has reportedly defended her for months. Trump has berated Nielsen in public and in private since she was hired, aggressively going after her during...

    A U.S. appeals court has ruled that President Trump’s decision to rescind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program is likely unlawful. The decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals blocks Trump from terminating DACA protections for undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, upholding a lower court’s decision. The ruling comes in response to a challenge from several individual DACA recipients; the states of California, Maine, Maryland and Minnesota; and the University of California regents. The court said it has concluded that the acting secretary of Homeland Security was wrong to conclude that the policy...

    A record high number of immigrants were ordered to be removed from the U.S. in 2018, a new report shows. The report comes after President Trump made immigration a central focus of the midterm election campaign. Immigration officials ordered 287,741 new deportations in the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018, according to a new report from Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). TRAC obtained the data from the Department of Homeland Security through Freedom of Information Act requests. It's the highest number of new removal filings since the group began tracking deportation orders in 1992. Just over 5 percent...

    Now that the smoke has cleared and we view the carnage, it's important to note that the last laugh should be on the Democrats. Republicans have until January 2nd, 2019 to make that a reality. With a little under two months left before the new Democrat majority in the House is sworn in, Republicans can push through every single element of President Trump's agenda. Fund the wall. Check. Increase the tax cuts to the middle class. Check. Make all the tax cuts permanent. Check. Ratify the new USMCA agreement. Check. Abolish birthright citizenship. Check. Finalize a limited DACA. Check.

    A federal appeals court on Thursday rejected the Trump administration’s bid to move ahead with its planned cancellation of a program that has provided protections and benefits to undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. when they were children. The ruling, by a three-judge panel of the San Francisco-based Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, said the administration voiced inadequate and flawed reasons for its decision in September 2017 to terminate an Obama-era program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

    A U.S. appeals court in California ruled on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s administration must continue a program begun under former President Barack Obama that protects hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children. The decision by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals preserves the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program introduced in 2012 that has shielded from deportation a group of immigrants dubbed “Dreamers” and given them work permits, though not a path to citizenship. The ruling represented another legal defeat for Trump over DACA, although he has won...

    An undercover sting operation has caught election polling center officials admitting, on a secret video recording, to helping non-citizens vote in the midterms and encouraging voters to choose Democrat candidates because they're "better." James O'Keefe's Project Veritas released the video on Tuesday that shows poll workers at a polling station in Travis County, Texas saying that they've had "tons" of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients voting in the election.
  • Trailing GOP U.S. Rep. Will Hurd by 689 votes, Ortiz Jones campaign says Texas race "is not over"

    Ortiz Jones has not called for a recount, but says she wants to see all provisional, absentee and military votes counted. The Texas congressional race between incumbent Republican Will Hurd and Democratic challenger Gina Ortiz Jones is still too close to call following a dramatic overnight in which Ortiz Jones pulled ahead, Hurd pulled back on top, and news outlets across the nation retracted their projections. On Wednesday morning in Congressional District 23, the state's only consistent battleground district, Hurd was leading Ortiz Jones by 689 votes, with all precincts counted. "This election is not over—every vote matters," said Noelle...

    The Trump administration asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review its decision to rescind the Obama-era DACA program Tuesday night. The request is unusual, because legal challenges to DACA’s termination are still underway in the lower courts. The Justice Department said the Court must act now to resolve the dispute this term, but left-leaning civil rights groups called the petition a political student ahead of Tuesday’s election The Trump administration returned to the U.S. Supreme Court Monday night seeking to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, an Obama-era amnesty initiative that extends protected status to illegal aliens...

    The Trump administration is asking the Supreme Court to preemptively step into the legal fights over its decision to end the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program and decide this term whether the move was lawful. Solicitor Noel Francisco filed a petition with the court on Monday asking the justices to hear their case and issue an opinion before the 2nd, 9th and D.C. Circuit courts of appeals have ruled.

    Multnomah County “sheriff” Mike Reese is now taking heat for failing to notify I.C.E. when he had an illegal alien in custody up on assault charges. Those charges were dropped, of course, and the illegal alien was set free, only for said illegal alien to go on to murder his wife by stabbing her to death and dumping her body in a ditch. Multnomah County is home to Portland, Oregon. ...

    The blue wave is now a bygone figment of a liberal Hollywood fantasy. Voter excitement is clearly with the Republican Party and President Donald Trump! There is a Red Wave Rising! One pundit, Michael E. Newton, has been tracking the 2018 mid-term election data to date. He addresses people’s questions about mid-term voting to date: Newton explains that because Democrat and Republican voting may have gotten closer each day, doesn’t mean that the Democrats are really catching up in early voting. It just means the Republican percent of gains over 2016 are not as great as they were yesterday: What...

    In 2007, I went to the border in Nogales, Arizona to see for myself what was really going on at the border. What I found literally shocked me. I saw first-hand the “rape trees” where human traffickers display the undergarments of the women they’ve raped along the trail. I saw acres of desert literally laden with trash and debris. I witnessed a van of drug runners, pursued by border patrol, speeding right past the house of the family I was staying with. The most heart-wrenching part of my trip was the conversation I had with the mother from across the border who met...

    Schoolteachers in Idaho are in trouble after dressing in politically charged costumes for Halloween. Photos surfaced on Facebook of staff at an elementary school in Middleton, Idaho, dressing as Mexicans and President Trump’s proposed border wall along with the saying, “Make America Great Again,” and waving American flags. Parents flagged the post as being potentially insensitive to some of the students and the local DACA group reported the photos saying they were “extremely disheartening.”

    Latinos and Hispanics, legally here in the U.S. are speaking out against the caravan heading north from Honduras to the U.S. That was the report from Univision, which is hardly a conservative news site. According to the Daily Caller, they're saying things like this: “How is it possible that a caravan from Central America is on it’s way to the U.S. and the people are speaking the way they’re speaking, demanding to get in. No sir, this isn’t their country and they need to respect it,” one man said. Another woman told Megid, “like the president says, they can...

Henry Diaz, a 26-year-old Honduran, was shot in the head with a rubber bullet, causing a deep head wound. He died on the way to a local hospital.

    It was maddening and frustrating to watch this past week’s coverage of the so-called “caravan” of thousands of Hondurans, Guatemalans and Salvadorans plowing through Mexico’s southern border and their subsequent march toward the United States. How is the support system, organizational infrastructure, logistical planning and financial backing not a big part of this story?......Any average American watching this enormous undertaking would naturally be curious as to how the entire thing is being managed and how it originated........... Thousands of people don’t spontaneously decide to leave their homes and walk thousands of miles, violating multiple international borders, without some help.... We...
