  • THUG'S MASSIVE PAYOUT Illegal immigrant with ‘abysmal’ criminal record trousers £40,000 compensation

    The Sun (UK) ^ | July 19, 2017 | Andy Jehring
    AN illegal immigrant with an “abysmal” criminal record has won £40,000 compensation after he was locked up for nearly a year. It is the second time Moroccan Khalid Belfken, 27, got a huge payout after efforts to deport him failed. The drug addict snuck into Britain illegally in 2005. He has committed more than 40 crimes and been jailed four times, most recently for burglary. The Home Office tried to kick Belfken out six times but authorities in Morocco refused to take him back.
  • Dem leaders vow ‘overwhelming’ opposition to Trump border wall

    House Democratic leaders on Wednesday offered a stern warning to Republicans hoping to put hundreds of millions of dollars toward President Trump’s border wall next year: You’re on your own. “They know that the majority of the Democrats don’t support funding for that wall,” Rep. Linda Sánchez (D-Calif.), vice chairman of the Democratic Caucus, told reporters in the Capitol. “If they choose to include it, then they are basically saying, ‘We have the votes among the Republican Party to pass this without a single Democratic vote.’ And if they’re not successful, the blame lies squarely at their feet, because they...

    Empowered by a president who has "taken the handcuffs off of law enforcement," the nation's chief immigration official revealed Tuesday that deportation targets have surged and that he's planning to deploy more agents and resources to "sanctuary cities" to arrest illegal criminals. Thomas D. Homan, acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said in an interview that since Trump entered office, illegal border crossings have crashed by almost 70 percent, "an historic low," arrests inside the country have jumped 40 percent and that demands for illegal criminals in local jails has skyrocketed 80 percent. "You can like President Trump, not...

Justice Thomas, Justice Alito, and Justice Gorsuch would have stayed the District Court order in its entirety.

    After declaring that Christians have “been horribly treated” by the refugee program under former President Barack Obama, President Donald Trump has reversed the Obama administration’s disgraceful discrimination against Christian refugees.  According to a Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. State Department refugee data, during the period from January 21, 2017 - President Trump’s first full day in office - through June 30, “9,598 Christian refugees arrived in the U.S., compared with 7,250 Muslim refugees. Christians made up 50% of all refugee arrivals in this period, compared with 38% who are Muslim.” From April through June 2017, Iraq was “the only Muslim-majority nation...

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Acting Director Thomas Homan said Tuesday that he plans on sending hundreds of agents to sanctuary cities in the near future as part of a major crackdown on illegal immigrants. Homan told the Washington Examiner Tuesday that he plans to address "ludicrous" sanctuary cities. "In the America I grew up in, cities didn't shield people who violated the law," Homan told the publication. “What I want to get is a clear understanding from everybody, from the congressmen to the politicians to law enforcement to those who enter the country illegally, that ICE is open for...

    As Europe’s migrant crisis enters a new phase, it’s clear that European leaders have neither the will nor desire to preserve their own civilization. ___ On Sunday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she would not limit the number of refugees coming into the country. “On the issue of an upper limit, my position is clear,” Merkel said. “I won’t accept one.” Setting aside the electoral implications of Merkel’s statement, which defied her party’s long-term coalition partner just two months before federal elections, it perfectly captured the refusal of European leaders to face the migrant crisis head-on—a refusal that in turn...

    Lawyers for the state of Hawaii and other challengers to President Trump's executive order argued to the Supreme Court on Tuesday that the current phase of that dispute should play out first in a lower appeals court. The variety of Supreme Court actions that the Trump Administration has sought are either outside of normal procedures or are unnecessary, the new filing contended. Administration lawyers moved late last week to get the Supreme Court itself to clarify what it meant on June 26 in narrowing the government's power to impose a sweeping exclusion of foreign nationals from Muslim-majority nations and of...

    Judicial Watch ^ | July 17, 2017
    Days after Judicial Watch exposed a new policy banning Phoenix police from contacting the feds after arresting illegal aliens, alarming pressure on the city council and chief of police has forced officials in Arizona’s largest city to postpone the order. Crafted at a Hispanic advisory committee that promotes open borders, the policy also prohibits officers from asking about suspects’ immigration status. The new policy’s two principle measures violate key provisions of a state law upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court and leave the city vulnerable to costly lawsuits. In the aftermath of Judicial Watch’s story, which included a copy of...

  • White House Plan Would Expand Deportations: Proposal gives Homeland Security greater powers

    A White House plan under consideration could lead to a vast expansion of the policy to deport undocumented immigrants without a court hearing. According to a memo obtained by the Washington Post, immigrants who are detained and cannot prove they have lived in the US for more than 90 days would face expedited deportations. The Department of Homeland Security would see its powers greatly extended under the plan, which would not require congressional approval. Trump administration officials floated the 13-page internal memo in May. A DHS spokeswoman told the Post the new guidelines are a draft and that no decisions...

    The Trump administration has told the Supreme Court that a lower court ruling earlier this week altering an executive order on immigration would bring thousands more refugees into the county and requires the justices’ “immediate intervention,” according to filing documents obtained early Saturday by Fox News. In a victory for the administration, the Supreme Court late last month lifted key components of an injunction against President Trump's temporary travel ban on refugees and visitors from six mostly-Muslim countries.

    Unless you live in a deep-blue state or congressional district, hypocrisy is not something you want to have to revisit during a re-election campaign. For red state Democratic Senator Joe Donnelly of Indiana, he should be preparing his defense because this is going to be used against him by the time his 2018 re-election campaign kicks into high gear. The senator has tried to portray himself as a hardcore fighter of this byproduct in free trade but seems to have profited from it through investments with the family arts and crafts business (via Associated Press) [emphasis mine]: An Indiana senator...

    The Latest on a judge’s decision on President Donald Trump’s travel ban (all times local): 3:50 p.m. The Trump administration is asking the Supreme Court for greater freedom in limiting visitors to the United States from six mostly Muslim countries and refugees from around the world. The Justice Department filed an emergency appeal with the high court late Friday that seeks to undo a Hawaii judge’s ruling from a day earlier. That ruling diluted President Donald Trump’s restrictions on refugees and visitors from Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

    Nearly 3,500 voters in Colorado as of Friday have canceled their voter registrations over the state's decision to turn over public information to President Trump's voter fraud commission. Thousands of Colorado voters have withdrawn their registrations since January, citing distrust of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity and an unfamiliarity with how much voter information is already public under law, The Denver Post reported Friday. In a statement, Colorado's GOP secretary of state said he hoped the thousands of voters who withdrew their voter registrations would reconsider.

    Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Republican attorneys general in nine other states sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that said that they will sue the federal government if it does not begin to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The DACA program, which was started by former President Obama, protects around 790,000 illegal immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as minors. Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Wednesday that he can’t assure them that the administration would prevail over this legal challenge.

    Facing the threat of a lawsuit from Texas and eight other states, the Trump administration indicated Wednesday that it may decline to defend DACA in court, a move that would likely result in the end of the program that granted amnesty to illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. when they were children. Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly went up to Capitol Hill on Wednesday afternoon to address members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, telling them, according to reports, that although he personally supports the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, he can’t promise that the administration will defend it...
