    Sen. Kamala Harris said Monday that she supports Congress moving towards impeachment, a step further than the California Democrat has gone in the past on whether President Donald Trump should be impeached. Harris' comment at a CNN town hall in New Hampshire comes amid a growing debate among Democrats over whether the House should move to impeach the President in the wake of special counsel Robert Mueller releasing his report on Russian intervention in the 2016 election and Trump's efforts to obstruct the investigation. "I think we have very good reason to believe that there is an investigation that has...

Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) vowed sweeping executive action on gun control if she is elected president, detailing her proposals for gun safety to a CNN town hall audience Monday night. Asked about her plan for addressing gun violence and school shootings in particular, Harris vowed that if Congress fails to “get their act together” and pass meaningful gun control legislation in the first 100 days of her presidency, she will sign an executive order requiring any retailer selling more than five guns a year to conduct background checks.Harris has also proposed revoking the licenses of gun manufacturers...

    A pregnant and mother and her 18-month-old baby crossed the border illegally Tuesday and were quickly found by Border Patrol Agents. However, when they found her, she was experiencing abdominal pain and taken to the hospital. Her child could not go with her, so during the time she was in the hospital, agents stepped up. According to Border Patrol, the agents from the Uvalde station took care of the baby, until she was deemed fit for travel and released. “I am proud of the agents and staff who continue to show great compassion during this humanitarian crisis on our southern...

    Three people who operated multimillion-dollar birth-tourism businesses in Southern California were arrested Thursday in the biggest federal criminal probe ever to target the thriving industry, in which pregnant women come to the United States to give birth so their children will become American citizens. The businesses coached their clients to deceive United States immigration officials and pay indigent rates at hospitals to deliver their babies, even though many of the clients were wealthy, investigators said. Some Chinese couples were charged as much as $100,000 for a birth-tourism package that included housing, nannies and shopping excursions to Gucci. A tip sheet...

    California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris, speaking during a town hall Monday night, vowed to eliminate all private health care insurance for approximately 150 million Americans if she is elected president. Asked by CNN host Jake Tapper if people who like their current health care insurance could keep it under Harris' "Medicare for All" plan, Harris indicated they could not -- but that, in turn, they would experience health care without any delays. Her statements appeared to be a full-throated call for single-payer health insurance, as opposed to merely expanding Medicare, and a dramatic embrace of the kind of proposals advocated...

    en. Kamala D. Harris of California joined the 2020 presidential contest on Monday, thrusting a daughter of immigrants from Jamaica and India into the Democratic race two years after she arrived in the Senate. Harris, a 54-year-old former prosecutor raised in a state that has been the crucible of the Trump resistance, expanded a growing field of candidates fighting for the nomination of a party that is increasingly nonwhite and fueled by women alienated by the president. She made the announcement during an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” and in a video that her campaign posted online.
  • The Kamala Harris Show (She is pathetic)

    01/18/2019 1:50:56 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 26 replies ^ | Brent Scher
    Kamala Harris's effort to rebrand herself as one of the cool candidates running for office didn't begin with the Monday release of her "Mood Mix" video of her favorite songs. It began with her book tour. Each of the four book events last week began with California’s Democratic senator dancing onto the stage with Tupac's "California Love" exploding through the speakers. The events, in the liberal cities of Washington D.C., New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles, are a clear warm-up act for her presidential run. But the goal at the events wasn't to go after President Donald Trump—her goal...

    Sen. Kamala Harris has decided to seek the 2020 Democratic nomination for president, sources close to her told KCBS Radio. She'll announce her candidacy on or around Martin Luther King Day, probably at a campaign rally in Oakland, the sources said. *** Even though Harris has alluded to a 2020 presidential campaign in interviews to promote her new memoir, aides said before the book rollout began that no formal announcement about her political future is expected before the first wave of the book tour concludes later this month. But several sources with knowledge of her plans said she has in...

    Americans are being sold the fairy tale that the whole world has a constitutional right to come here, give birth, and get a free American passport. We’re told it’s “un-American” to dare say otherwise, but the growing phenomenon of “birth tourism” is the real affront to American values.There are, at this moment, hundreds of companies offering rich foreigners all-inclusive birth vacations to beautiful American tourist destinations. Astonishingly, pregnant jetsetters from around the world step off planes, clear customs with their tourist visas, and are whisked from airports to specialty birth tourism hospitals that exist just for this purpose. The hotel...

    According to lawsuit, longtime Harris aide demeaned his executive assistant Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., expressed surprise and frustration when reports first surfaced last week that a longtime aide had settled allegations of gender discrimination last year — attributing her lack of awareness to a “breakdown” in communication. But the California Department of Justice received notification of the suit three months before Harris left her position as state attorney general, according to a new report. According to a lawsuit, Harris confidante Larry Wallace demeaned and retaliated against Danielle Hartley when she worked as his executive assistant at the state Department of...

    Nineteen-year-old Maryury Elizabeth Serrano-Hernandez, a Hondruan woman who made the grueling 2,000-mile trek to the U.S. border with her husband and three-year-old in tow, wasn’t about to miss out on what she called the “big reward”: having a baby on American soil. But when the family reached Tijuana a month after they set out on their journey, they found that thousands of Central Americans had had the same idea before them. With U.S. inspectors processing only about 100 asylum claims daily, Serrano-Hernandez — who was eight months pregnant — wasn’t about to wait her turn. Somehow she managed to scale...

    The left has always downplayed any such thing as "anchor babies" and derided the term as "offensive."

Customs and Border Protection said Wednesday that agents arrested the woman Nov. 26 after she entered the country...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) — who is eyeing a 2020 presidential bid against President Trump — says the United States should be “welcoming” migrant caravans that arrive at the nation’s southern border. While campaigning for Democrats in Iowa, Harris told a CNN reporter that the U.S. response to the 7,000-strong migrant caravan of job-seekers and previously deported illegal aliens should be “welcoming” and “tolerant.” “We are a country that … our strength has always been that we are a tolerant country, that we are welcoming, in particular, those who have fled harm,” Harris said of the caravan. “And the idea...

    Kamala Harris and other prominent Democrats want to repeal Trump's tax cuts and replace them with cash payouts for the poor and working class With midterm elections 2˝ weeks away and the 2020 presidential race around the corner, prominent Democrats are embracing an ambitious idea: Repeal and replace the $1.5 trillion Republican tax plan.
