  • WUt? DC mayor wants to kick out the homeless, but defend illegal aliens

    Conservative Review ^ | 1/16/17 | Carly Hoilman
    In September, D.C.’s Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser introduced the Homeless Services Modernization Amendment Act, in order to update and improve the 2005 Homeless Services Reform Act. The proposed legislation would now require homeless individuals seeking shelter to provide proof of residency, to ensure that District residents receive priority. Ironically, the city has taken the exact opposite approach to the issue of illegal immigration. Mayor Bowser announced this week that she has pledged $500,000 in taxpayer money for a grant program to help illegal-immigrant residents in deportation proceedings, among other services. Interestingly enough, there seems to be no requirements for such...

    With just days to go until Donald Trump is inaugurated as the 45th president of the United States of America, we want to hear from Irish readers living there about how they feel now about him entering the White House. On the day of the election result, we were inundated with reaction, with the majority expressing shock and dismay. Have your opinions or expectations changed in the months since? What did you think of Mr Trump’s press conference this week? What is the mood like where you live? How do you think his presidency could affect the Irish community in...

    Dozens of dogs greeted visitors at a local brewery Friday after they were rescued from an illegal meat trade in Thailand. The event, called Suds for Soi Dogs was held at Mission Brewery featuring 17 of 30 dogs recently rescued and brought to the United States. It was a fundraiser to raise money by El Cajon-based The Barking Lot and the Soi Dog Foundation to help care for the dogs and rescue others. Another 1,200 dogs are still at a shelter in Thailand. It costs $250 to bring each dog to the U.S., which doesn't include the cost associated with...

    Three years ago, Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez of Honduras spoke before us here in Washington about the need for the United States and all nations to set aside the single-minded pursuit of wealth. He repeated Pope Francis’ warning about an economy that kills. He cited global inequality that has left working families so far behind that they often don’t have safe places to sleep, enough food to eat or access to clean water.These concerns threaten us right here in America, right now. It’s the paradox of scarcity, and its solution is both increasingly difficult and increasingly important to embrace. When you...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's experience in the 2016 Republican presidential primary was apparently enough to make him swear off ever running for political office again. While speaking Thursday at Texas A&M University, where he's spending two weeks teaching a course about governors, Bush admitted that he thinks 2016 was his best — and only — shot at making his presidential dreams a reality. "I unraveled everything I was doing to prepare for this — you don't do that lightly," Bush said. "I just think this was my chance." But Bush swears he's doing okay in spite of his loss....

    BROWNSVILLE, Texas – President-elect Donald Trump’s pledge to build a U.S.-Mexico wall has touched off a fierce debate in the U.S. border towns that would be most affected – with local Democrats vowing to fight Trump tooth and nail if he proceeds. “Mexico is an ally, not an enemy,” Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Texas, told FoxNews.com. “It is our second-largest trading partner, and building a wall between two countries with such important ties is a senseless and wasteful exercise." Vela is a colorful Trump critic. He made headlines after calling the president-elect's illegal immigrant policies “hateful, dehumanizing, and frankly shameful.” In...

The goal was the United States and now the door that spurred their odyssey has slammed shut.

Ryan dismissed that idea. “I’m here to tell you in Congress, it’s not happening.” Instead, Ryan said Mr. Trump has asked lawmakers to focus on two priorities with respect to illegal immigration: securing the border and deporting immigrants who are violent, repeat criminals. House GOP lawmakers and aides have also said recently they’re working on how to pay for border security to make good on Mr. Trump’s promise of building a wall...

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan told an illegal immigrant Thursday night that she shouldn’t “worry” about getting deported this year. A 32-year old illegal immigrant living in Oklahoma named Angelica asked Ryan during a CNN town hall if he thinks she should be deported. Angelica was brought to the United States when she was 11, and thus is protected under President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal immigrants brought to the United States as minors. The woman has an American-born daughter and wondered if someone in her situation should be deported.

Ever since Fidel Castro turned Cuba into a Soviet outpost in the 1950s, the United States has had a policy of welcoming Cuban refugees, assuming they could make it to our shores, even if they don’t have a visa. (Since, after all, how could they have a visa?) And since the mid-1990s, this has been formalized the wet-foot-dry-foot policy, and it establishes that if land on U.S....

    Immigrants who have come to our country in search of better opportunities have been the economic backbone of America for well over a century. In the face of a difficult job market for many immigrants, their keys to the American Dream may not be readily available.Nowhere is this truer than with nonunion jobs, which typically offer lower pay, limited benefits and virtually no job security. In a new country with little knowledge of the labor market, these work conditions make immigrants more vulnerable to worker exploitation, sometimes with heartbreaking results.

Trump should unleash the full force of federal fury on this city, which is clearly in no fiscal condition for the upcoming battle.

    Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said Friday that the next administration could reverse his promises and use the information illegal immigrants have voluntarily turned over to the department as part of a 2012 amnesty to now target them for deportation. Mr. Johnson, in an interview with Univision, said he hoped the Trump administration wouldn’t take that stance, but the secretary said there are no legal blocks to doing so. “By its nature, executive action is not legal action, and it can be changed by the next administration,” Mr. Johnson said in the interview, airing Sunday on “Al Punto with Jorge...

    Chicago's Honey Butter Fried Chicken is among a couple of dozen restaurants across the country to sign onto a new "sanctuary restaurant" movement meant to offer safe workplaces for immigrants, Muslims and other communities they feel are under threat in the current political climate.

According to a news release Wednesday, sanctuary restaurants do not allow harassment of individuals based on immigrant or...
