    MODESTO, Calif. (AP) — Speakers at a Vatican-sponsored conference in Northern California — including an archbishop — denounced President Donald Trump’s orders on immigration and travel and vowed to fight them at a meeting Friday. Los Angeles Archbishop Jose Gomez said President Barack Obama deported a high number of people, but the harsh tone and cruelty coming out of the new administration was prompting mass fear and panic. “They’re playing with people’s emotions and toying with their lives and futures, and that is not right,” said Gomez, who noted his city has an estimated 1 million people who are living...

    This arsenal of firearms is among the dozens of weapons that have been taken off London’s streets during the Met’s latest gun amnesty. Since Monday 45 weapons have been surrendered across the capital as part of the Give Up Your Gun campaign, including shotguns, revolvers, rifles and handguns, Scotland Yard said. Detectives from the Met’s gang unit today urged anyone still in possession of an illegal firearm to hand it in before the amnesty ends on Sunday night.

Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) told journalists on Capitol Hill that Trump told a bipartisan gathering of lawmakers he is receptive to the so-called Gang of Eight bill. “He is open to reviewing the piece of legislation.

    [Video] The American people are a welcoming and generous people. But those who enter our country illegally, and those who employ them, disrespect the rule of law. And because we live in an age where terrorists are challenging our borders, we simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, and unchecked. Americans are right to demand better border security and better enforcement of the immigration laws.

    We should not allow Dreamers to forget that this is a nation of law and they received mercy. On June 15, 2012, President Obama signed an executive order to protect those who arrived illegally to the United States as minors. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals provides a two-year window to shield these people from deportation and allow them to work. They must have been under 16 when they arrived, be in school or have completed school, and have no criminal record. The order produced consternation on two fronts. First, the nature of the action.

    A number of Arabic and Pashtu interpreters at the terror-war detention center at Guantanamo Bay are under active investigation for omitting valuable intelligence from their translations of detainee interrogations, among other security breaches. This could taint some of the evidence at the "9/11 trial" in New York and proceedings against other detainees. Remarkably, the Pentagon never cleaned up the "mole infestation" at its highest-security facility after the FBI busted a Muslim spy ring at Gitmo in 2003.

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...

And it asked whether federal workers have altered biographic information kept by the department about immigrants out of concern for their civil liberties.

    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...

    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.

    Amnesty for illegal immigrants like a program proposed by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton would require an immediate tax hike of $1.2 trillion, a $15,000 hit on every household in America, according to a new analysis of immigration reform. The authoritative National Academy of Sciences said the cost to give some 11 million illegals citizenship rights would be staggering, though it suggested long-term benefits.

    There has been a surge of immigrants illegally crossing into the United States leading up to next month’s presidential election. CBS News reports dozens of immigrants have been streaming through the streets of McAllen, Texas, on a daily basis. They have been taken to a migrant center at Sacred Heart Catholic Church where they were released by Border Patrol, with ankle monitors, while they file for asylum. Agent Chris Cabrera told CBS News that they’ve been seeing a spike in immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally, thanks in part to the election. “The smugglers are telling them if Hillary [Clinton]...

    Never missing an opportunity to offer illegal immigrants reprieve, the Obama administration has repeatedly used inclement weather, a virus, natural disasters and tainted water in a U.S. city to extend the perk in the last few years. This month the administration announced yet another special amnesty for victims of Hurricane Matthew. The powerful storm slammed the southeastern United States a few weeks ago, killing dozens and causing severe flooding. News reports have confirmed deaths in North Carolina, Florida, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia. Entire communities from central Florida to Virginia suffered power outages, major flooding and a lot of homes...

    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." "Immigration reform is so important," Clinton told the Wall Street executives, as she demanded that...

    In a 2013 email published a few days ago by WikiLeaks, Hillary Clinton expressed views wildly at odds with those of the American citizenry: “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.” Most of Donald Trump’s Republican defectors are poised to help her achieve her open-borders dream. As Republican elites continue to defy Republican voters on the crucial issue of immigration, it’s not surprising that the Senate’s open-borders crowd is refusing to back the man who—largely because of his hawkish immigration position — was chosen by Republican voters to be their party’s nominee. While only...

  • SOTU: Tim Kaine Goes Full Evasive on Wikileaks 'Open Borders' Revelation

    Jake Tapper's infamous furrowed brow of skepticism got quite a workout this morning on CNN's State Of The Union. The cause was the shuffling, dodging, and general evasiveness by Democrat vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine when questioned about the Wikileaks revelation that Hillary Clinton had called for open borders. 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’s Immigration Webpage: Running for Prez of USA, or Mexico?

    On a morning when the political news has been drowned out—so to speak—by the hurricane coverage, I decided to pop over to Hillary’s official website, where I checked out her “Immigration Reform” webpage. And to look at it, a person could be excused for thinking that Hillary was running for president of Mexico, not the US. The banner is of Hillary hugging what appears to be a young Latino girl, in front of a wall festooned with posters reading “Estoy contigo.” Translation: “I’m with you.” So when it comes to immigration, Hillary’s not with Americans worried about losing jobs and...
  • On service, Clinton separates Trump from past GOP presidents

    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.
