    GOP Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) on Friday said that if President Trump isn't prepared to hold Russian President Vladimir Putin "accountable" for aggression toward the U.S. then he should cancel their meeting next week. "President Trump must be willing to confront Putin from a position of strength and demonstrate that there will be a serious price to pay for his ongoing aggression towards the United States and democracies around the world. If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward," McCain said in a statement.

    The longest-serving Republican senator in U.S. history announced this week that he will finally, finally, finally, finally, finally, finally, finally retire. That's seven "finallys" -- one for each of the consecutive six-year terms Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, served. He begin his occupancy in 1976, when all phones were dumb, the 5.25-inch floppy disk was cutting-edge, the very first Apple computer went on sale for $666.66, the Concorde was flying high, O.J. Simpson was a hero, Blake Shelton was a newborn, the first MRI was still a blueprint, and I was a gap-toothed first-grader wearing corduroy bell-bottoms crushing on Davy Jones....

    Twenty-seven conservative leaders signed a statement in support of Lee, including Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, Conservative Partnership Institute Chairman Jim DeMint, and FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon. “Sen. Lee has a proven record of standing up for principle, for doing the right thing for the right reasons, even in the face of withering criticism,” the letter states. “And that’s what this nominee is in for.” The statement warns the confirmation battle to replace Kennedy is likely to be the “roughest fight Washington has seen in decades,” and notes that a Supreme Court with a conservative majority will...

    Robert Costa, a Washington Post political reporter and NBC News political analyst, tweeted Thursday: "When I asked a prominent Trump ally about Sen. Lee/ SCOTUS, they said this article is floating around the WH, as evidence that he's a long shot." Costa included a link to an Associated Press story about Lee casting a "protest" vote in the 2016 presidential election for independent candidate Evan McMullin.

    Florida Gov. Rick Scott has sharpened his opposition to the federal government’s separation of children from adults who attempt to illegally enter the U.S., specifically linking the policy to President Donald Trump and declaring in a letter late Tuesday that “This practice needs to stop now.” Scott expressed his position in a letter to Health and Human Services Sec. Alex Azar seeking information about an HHS-run facility in Homestead that is housing 94 minors who were separated from their parents.

    While listing her demands of Republicans, House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) demanded “amnesty” for illegal aliens Thursday, then caught herself and called for “asylum and all the rest,” instead. […]“We demand immediately to know what they intend to do unite these families, end the zero tolerance. I won’t even go into the policy about amnesty — I mean not amnesty; they’d love for us to say that — asylum and all the rest. You all know that very well and you’ve testified to it.” …

    The House is considering immigration legislation that could result in millions of illegal aliens being legalized in the United States, and now a leader for law enforcement officers tasked with enforcing federal law is warning President Donald Trump not to repeat the Gang of Eight amnesty debacle. Chris Crane, president of the National Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Council, which represents thousands of ICE officers, said in a letter to President Donald Trump that his organization is “seriously concerned” about the proposed legislation. The Washington Times reported: The bill would open the door to massive fraud, would allow people who...

    Heritage Action is opposed to the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act (H.R. 6136) and will include it as a key vote on our legislative scorecard. Separately from amnesty, Congress should provide a legislative fix to the family separation crisis at the southern border. Below is chart comparing the two proposals the House of Representatives may consider this week. H.R. 6136 contains language that helps solve the family separation crisis, but does so in the context of amnesty. Stand-alone legislative fixes similar to what is offered by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and others can help reunite...

    "All of us are horrified at the images we're seeing." He said he's talked with the White House about legislation he plans to introduce to stop the separations, though its exact language hasn't yet been released... "We can stop this. The legislation I'm filing this week would prohibit separating families, would mandate that kids should stay with their parents." He said his bill would double the number of federal immigration judges to ensure that asylum cases are heard within two weeks. "If the claim is not valid, and many of those coming here illegally don't have valid claims for asylum,...

    Hillary Clinton said, "Jesus Christ said, 'Suffer the little children unto me' not 'let the little children suffer.'" Three former first ladies — Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama — have stepped out their political retirement to condemn the Trump administration's practice of separating parents and children at the border while parents are prosecuted for illegally entering the country. Speaking at a women's group in New York City on Monday, Clinton called family separation "an affront to our values" and said she had warned Trump's immigration policy would lead to this during her 2016 presidential campaign against him. And...

    Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush is calling on President Donald Trump to end the “heartless” policy of separating immigrant children from their parents at the U.S. border. “Children shouldn’t be used as a negotiating tool,” Bush tweeted on Monday. “@realDonaldTrump should end this heartless policy and Congress should get an immigration deal done that provides for asylum reform, border security and a path to citizenship for Dreamers.” The failed presidential candidate’s plea came in response to President Trump’s tweet in which he vowed to stop “some of the worst criminals on earth,” from using children to illegally enter the U.S....

    The White House stated that President Donald Trump actually supports Speaker Paul Ryan’s plan to offer amnesty to children of illegal immigrants in exchange for modest border security proposals. “The President fully supports both the Goodlatte bill and the House leadership bill,” White House Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah told reporters in a statement. Shah’s remarks clarified Trump’s comment in a Friday morning interview on Fox and Friends that he would not sign the “more moderate” bill on immigration, which is the leadership version of an immigration compromise with Republican moderates. The president’s remarks threw House Republican leaders into chaos...

    We were told that it would be better if illegal immigrants were drawn out of the shadows and documented. Therefore, an American president illegally amnestied many without the consent of the people’s representatives, something that even King George couldn’t do without parliament. Yet one look at new government data provided to Rep. Steve King and shared exclusively with Conservative Review shows that, six years into the illegal amnesty, we still know very little about the amnestied population. What we do know paints a disturbing picture of our government placing the desire for legalization at all costs ahead of its own...

    Next week, the House of Representatives will consider two immigration bills, a bill sponsored by Rep. Goodlatte, R-Va., that conservatives are supporting and a more moderate bill with a special pathway to U.S. citizenship for DACA recipients. In an interview on “Fox & Friends” Friday morning, President Donald Trump announced that he will not sign a moderate immigration bill. @realDonaldTrump: "I need a bill that gives this country tremendous boarder security... we have to have the wall, if we don't have the wall there is no bill" Conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus have pressured House leadership for months to...
