    "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...

    conservative review ^ | 6/14/2018 | Daniel Horowitz
    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...

    Breitbart News claims that it received a leaked draft of Paul Ryan's immigration bill, to be voted on before the House recess. I have my fingers crossed that this is not the bill that will be introduced, but rather a preliminary wish-list version. The excerpts posted by Breitbart indicate a complete sell-out of the base in favor of the corporate donors wanting cheap labor. According to a leaked draft of the amnesty deal, obtained by Breitbart News, Ryan's plan would allow the entire "DACA population" to be eligible for amnesty so long as they meet low educational, work, and criminal...

    A leaked draft of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) amnesty deal could lead to the “biggest” amnesty for illegal aliens in United States history, experts tell Breitbart News. Ryan’s immigration deal would go beyond giving amnesty to only the nearly 800,000 illegal aliens who are enrolled in the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. According to a leaked draft of the amnesty deal, obtained by Breitbart News, Ryan’s plan would allow the entire “DACA population” to be eligible for amnesty so long as they meet low educational, work and criminal requirements, prompting the amnesty to explode in...

    A leaked draft of House Speaker Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) amnesty deal confirms Breitbart News’s previous reports detailing how the legislation would not reduce legal immigration levels to the United States, as President Trump and likely voters have demanded. In a draft of Ryan’s amnesty deal, obtained by Breitbart News, for potentially millions of illegal aliens who qualify for the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, current levels of legal immigration at which the U.S. admits more than one million immigrants a year would continue.

    These idiots never learn. Switched on FOX News and there was RINO Ryan, et al, calling for a compromise bill to legalize and grant amnesty to 1.8 million dreamers. Hell no!! Send Obama's illegal aliens back! Obama's DACA is unconstitutional. Hold their feet to the fire (again)! No amnesty!! Not under Bush. Not under Obama. And certainly not under Trump! Build the wall, enforce the law, deport them all!! End sanctuary cities, end anchor babies, end chain migration, end DACA!! And don't break up families. Deport them all!!

    Gov. Rick Scott appears to be on board with Rep. Carlos Curbelo's plan to bypass House Speaker Paul Ryan to force a slew of immigration votes, putting the Republican running for Bill Nelson's U.S. Senate seat in line with Democrats and a small group of moderate Republicans. But while Scott offered support for Curbelo's idea to force action, it isn't clear what types of immigration policies he would champion in the U.S. Senate if elected. "We need to secure our borders and help these kids. Congress needs to get DACA legislation done. Thanks Congressman Curbelo for fighting for this," Scott...

    U.S. authorities are transferring into federal prisons about 1,600 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainees, officials told Reuters on Thursday, in the first large-scale use of federal prisons to hold detainees amid a Trump administration crackdown on people entering the country illegally. An ICE spokeswoman told Reuters five federal prisons will temporarily take in detainees awaiting civil immigration court hearings, including potential asylum seekers, with one prison in Victorville, California, preparing to house 1,000 people. Officials of a prison employees’ union said the influx of ICE detainees, who were arrested at the border or elsewhere in the United States by...

    To deal or not to deal, that is the question facing Speaker Paul Ryan and the House GOP on Thursday when it comes to immigration. If House Republican leaders push through a deal for DACA (Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals) that appears to be an amnesty, it may drive away base voters that they desperately need to have any chance of holding the House in November. But if Ryan and Co. can't come up with a deal, some 25 or so Republican may join with the Democrats to push through a discharge petition that puts an actual amnesty in play....

    Immigration has been electoral gold for Republicans in the last few elections cycles. As Democrats have moved increasingly in the direction of an amnesty-only approach to illegal immigration, Republicans at the federal and state level have succeeded by promising voters real immigration enforcement. Running on that platform, Republicans captured both houses of Congress and the White House in 2016. Both in his campaign and as president, Donald Trump laid out a comprehensive list of reforms to halt illegal immigration and vowed to oppose any form of amnesty for those who violated our laws. In 2018, as legislators prepare to face...
