    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....

    Host Jake Tapper pointed out that Mr. Trump, during the campaign, promised a “deportation force” to round up the more than 11 million immigrants in the country illegally. 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...

Sanctuary cities are a violation of the rule of law and they are not to be tolerated. We agree with that 100%. And that means if you want federal assistance, you’re not going to get it. You’ve got to enforce the law.” He added that Congress is working on two things: “to secure the border, and to enforce our laws with respect to criminal — violent criminals who are illegal aliens.” Ryan said on...

    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...

    In a wide-ranging request for documents and analysis, President-elect Donald Trump's transition team asked the Department of Homeland Security last month to assess all assets available for border wall and barrier construction. The team also asked about the department's capacity for expanding immigrant detention and about an aerial surveillance program that was scaled back by the Obama administration but remains popular with immigration hardliners. And it asked whether federal workers have altered biographic information kept by the department about immigrants out of concern for their civil liberties. The requests were made in a Dec. 5 meeting between Trump's transition team...

    Immigrants who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, but were protected from deportation by President Barack Obama, are being warned by some advocates to make sure they are not traveling abroad when Donald Trump is sworn in as president on Jan. 20. Some advocates, lawyers and universities are concerned that Trump might immediately rescind an Obama program that had allowed these young immigrants to work and travel for humanitarian, educational or employment purposes. That could lead, they fear, to some people traveling abroad being barred from re-entering the U.S....

    Former Republican presidential candidate and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul has a strong opinion on John Bolton's candidacy to serve in Donald Trump's State Department. The former UN ambassador is being considered for the No. 2 spot in the agency, yet Paul argues that Bolton's endorsement of the Iraq War disqualifies him from working in the administration. “John Bolton doesn’t get it. He still believes in regime change. He’s still a big cheerleader for the Iraq War,” Paul said. “John Bolton is so far out of it and has such a naive understanding of the world.” Bolton should get "nowhere close" to the State...

Two veterans of the last major immigration fight, Sen. Richard J. Durbin, Illinois Democrat, and Republican Sen.

    President-elect Trump is quickly assembling his Executive cabinet. Key leaders in Congress are ready to repeal Obamacare and the disastrous Iran deal. But on immigration, legislators in Congress are already moving against his long-term plans--and the will of the people. It’s not so much that I’m surprised, as astonished—at the rank stupidity or suicidal arrogance of some elected officials—Sen. Lindsey Graham specifically—and he’s at it again. During the primary, Trump punked Graham by releasing his phone number to the public. Undeterred, Graham desperately tried to break into the first-tier. He cut one commercial: 18 Ways to Destroy Your Phone, or...

    A little known law, passed concurrently with the Gun Control Act of 1968, offers the Trump administration a powerful lever. That lever can be used to roll back infringements on the Second Amendment that exist in the National Firearms Act of 1934. The National Firearms Act (NFA) is an ill-conceived omnibus gun control legislation passed in 1934. It was poorly written by an ascendant Franklin Roosevelt administration. It was designed to outlaw the possession of handguns through draconian taxes and regulation. The tax stamp for a single item was equivalent to a years income for a day laborer. Thrown...

This analysis, if anything, understates the real numbers. But it's a window into just what illegal alien amnesty would cost us.

    The long-term costs to taxpayers of immigrants and their descendants are detailed in a new report from the National Academy of Sciences. The findings in the report indicate that if amnesty for illegal immigrants were enacted, the government would have to raise taxes immediately by $1.29 trillion and put that sum into a high-yield bank account to cover future fiscal losses generated by the amnesty recipients and their children. To cover the future cost, each U.S. household currently paying federal income tax would have to pay, on average, an immediate lump sum of over $15,000.

    Complete Headline: Wikileaks Reveals–Hillary Clinton to Goldman Sachs: Americans Who Want to Limit Immigration Are 'Fundamentally UnAmerican' Clinton's statement is significant because it suggests that, according to polling data, Clinton views an overwhelming majority of the American electorate to be "fundamentally un-American." According to data from Pew Research Center, 83% of the American electorate would like to see immigration levels frozen or reduced. Clinton's declaration describing those who want to limit immigration as "unAmerican" came in the context of her urging action on "immigration reform."

Perhaps Kaine thought he would only be faced with questions that he would be eager to answer about the recent release of a decade old off-color Donald Trump tape. For the first part of the interview, Kaine was happily chirping away on this topic. However, Tapper eventually switched gears to ask about the Wikileaks revelation and...

    Hillary Clinton looked to separate Donald Trump from recent Republican presidents on Friday, laying out a plan to encourage national service while arguing that Trump would never address the subject. The rollout of Clinton's plan -- which includes tripling the size of AmeriCorps and founding a reserve corps of 5 million people to respond to natural disasters -- was meant to be a moment for Clinton to talk more about her policies and values than about her boisterous opponent. But as has been the case throughout 2016, Clinton's speech was a both a direct and implicit rebuke of Trump.

Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, could not deny that in many cases there is no data from the refugee’s home country that would corroborate or refute his story. He tried to reassure the committee by saying the screening process is lengthy and continuously being improved, noting that the United Nations pre-screens the refugees before his...

In the original amnesty, no tax was charged.  It was not limited by state or to certain dates of manufacture.  Information collected during the registration...

    <p>With shootings a weekly occurrence in Melbourne and crime up, Justice Minister Michael Keenan announced plans to allow those with illegal guns to turn them in without compensation.</p> <p>The island continent with a population of around 24 million held a nationwide gun buyback in 1996 following a mass killing known as the Port Arthur massacre, where a gunman murdered 35 people and injured 24. The measure led to severe restrictions on firearms including an outright ban on most semi-automatic and pump-action rifles and shotguns. During the enactment of the law, the government bought back nearly 700,000 guns at a cost of $500 million, but whether or not it had a positive affect is still up for debate.</p>

    Hillary Clinton’s running mate Sen. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) shrugged off the reality of sanctuary cities in an interview with CNN’s “New Day” on Thursday, calling them a “phantom.” “When Donald Trump kind of goes after these phantom sanctuary cities and talks about how bad they are, basically what he’s going after is police chiefs. And I trust police chiefs, in terms of knowing what should be done to keep their communities safer — and police departments and mayors a lot more than I trust Donald Trump.” […] Trump repeatedly has criticized sanctuary cities on the campaign trail: “I have met...

    Many are beginning to attribute favorable opinion toward the campaign of Donald Trump and toward the campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway. However, those same voices may not fully grasp the scope of Wall Street’s Machiavellian architects. Has anyone forgotten the term “Grubering”, or the intent behind Jonathan Gruber’s admissions of how to maneuver a legislative agenda (Obamacare) despite the will of the people? Prudent caution is needed. You only need to look as far as the latest Daron Shaw construct delivered by Fox News under the auspices of their latest Poll. Remember, there are trillions of dollars at stake; Wall Street...
  • Gary Johnson: We need a path to citizenship and calling illegals “illegal” is “very incendiary”

    A golden moment from his interview with our Townhall cousin, Guy Benson. Watch him get genuinely pissy at around 4:00 when Guy, very politely, presses him on why the term “illegal” is so troubling. What we’re left with here is a third-party candidate who’s hyper-libertarian on immigration, of all issues, but not so libertarian on, for example, a carbon tax or whether business owners should be forced to cater gay weddings. That’s his pitch to conservatives who have been alienated by Trump: Possibly some new taxes, certainly less religious liberty, and all the amnesty you can eat. There’s no reason...

    The biggest political story of the last week has been Donald Trump’s flip-flop on deporting undocumented immigrants. This Sunday on CNN, Mike Pence filibustered his way through the subject for almost seven minutes before Jake Tapper finally declared, “You did not address the issue” and moved on. Chris Christie on ABC and Kellyanne Conway on CBS were no more coherent. The Daily Beast summed up the morning with the headline, “Immigration Flip-Flop Leaves Trump Campaign Flailing on Sunday Shows.”

    Donald Trump on Thursday ruled out supporting a pathway to legal status for undocumented immigrants, but declined to say if he still supports deporting everyone in the U.S. illegally. "There's no path to legalization unless they leave the country," Trump told CNN's Anderson Cooper following an event in Manchester, N.H.

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump continued to insist Wednesday in a "Hannity" town hall with Fox News' Sean Hannity that there will be "no amnesty" for illegal immigrants, but suggested that he would be willing to "work with them." His remarks were the latest in a series of recent interviews where he has said he is considering softening a previous pledge made at the onset of his campaign to deport 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. During a "Hannity" town hall on Tuesday, Trump said he was open to "softening" laws dealing with illegal immigrants. On Wednesday, Trump told...

    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends Weekend,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) pushed back on Buzzfeed report a day earlier that said Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump may have reversed course on his immigration policy proposals. The junior Alabama senator told co-host Tucker Carlson ending the “lawlessness” must be the first priority of the president. “He has not changed his view, but he had a great meeting with people who had different ideas as I understand. I wasn’t there, but he had a good discussion. He listened to all the different views. Look, we need a lawful system of...

    A senior staffer at the Republican National Committee (RNC) told Breitbart News Saturday GOP presidential candidate Donald J. Trump did not say or suggest that he was open to granting any legal status–amnesty–to any illegal aliens in the United States at his campaign’s National Hispanic Advisory Council meeting as reported in BuzzFeed and Univision. “Mr. Trump did not say he was in favor of legalization,” said Helen Aguirre-Ferre, who joined the RNC staff to help coordinate outreach to the Hispanic community and act as the GOP Hispanic communications director. Aguirre-Ferre told Breitbart News that she is Hispanic, but not a...
