    “We reject the practice and pattern of lying that is invading our political and civil life. Politicians, like the rest of us, are human, fallible, sinful, and mortal. “But when public lying becomes so persistent that it deliberately tries to change facts for ­ideological, political, or personal gain, the public accountability to truth is undermined.” Last year Rev Curry’s church slammed a ­decision by Trump to revoke one of Barack Obama’s policies in a bid to restrict the rights of immigrant children. He and more than 120 bishops claimed it would “endanger the lives of thousands of young people and...

    The incessant smear campaigns by the progressive socialists must stop. It is apparent that this is the weapon of choice among the leftists who inhabit the Deep State and the media. The fact that they act the way they do, venturing well outside the rule of law or even basic decency is nothing more than the fact that they feel morally superior and indispensable.  The morality of the past and the affirmation that people can disagree civilly is now gone. Any deviation from moving forward to make the world as they want it must be destroyed and any means are...
  • Four Ways Speaker of the House Paul Ryan Can Block the Discharge Amnesty Petition

    House Speaker Paul Ryan has many tools to prevent the discharge petition from reaching the House floor — and even to prevent a clear majority of legislators from passing the planned amnesty. Twenty GOP legislators have signed the petition, just five short of the number need to let the Democrats get 218 votes for a floor vote on an amnesty bill. When, or if, 25 GOP members have signed, Democrats can rush another 193 signatures on the petition, giving them then 218 votes they need to force a vote on the floor, which can happen the following month. Voters can...

    The Koch Network is using its immigration initiative LIBRE to back a number of Democrats that are working to find a permanent legal solution for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients. The megadonor brothers are known for the regular backing of conservative causes, donating millions of dollars to back GOP candidates, but NPR reports that the LIBRE initiative is raising money to protect Democrats who have shown a willingness to work on finding a legislative fix for DACA while also backing stronger border security initiatives. "This stands out. People when they talk about the Koch network ... they point...

    Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) is the leader of the discharge petition. Rep. Mia Love (R-UT), who supported Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) during the 2016 presidential election, has also signed onto the discharge petition. Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO), who has signed the discharge petition, opposed Trump so much in the 2016 election that he ran ad campaigns against Trump. Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX), also a signer of the discharge petition, announced during the 2016 election that he could not “in good conscience support or vote for” Trump. Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI), an influential Congressman, signed the discharge petition as well. Upton...

    WASHINGTON - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan on Wednesday warned a small group of his fellow Republicans against forcing a floor debate on four separate bills that would protect young illegal immigrants from deportation, saying doing so would be a “big mistake.” Instead, Ryan said he was working with the White House on a singular bill that would win President Donald Trump’s support.

    breitbart ^ | Neil Munro
    Fifteen Republicans have quickly signed a “discharge petition” that would allow Democrats to push a no-strings amnesty for roughly 3 million ‘DACA’ illegals through the House this month. The amnesty vote will be forced if the discharge petition is signed by 25 GOP legislators plus all Democratic legislators — providing the GOP legislators do not reverse their votes when they face pressure from the GOP’s leadership, led by outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan. The amnesty push is a political challenge for Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the likely replacement for Ryan. “The goal is to empower each member of the House, including...

Paul Ryan is on his way out so he’s on a kamikaze mission to push through mass amnesty. Laura Ingraham warned the President Monday.

    The Justice Department and Department of Homeland Security entered into an agreement Friday aimed at stopping U.S. companies from favoring foreign workers with visas over U.S. workers, according to documents first obtained by the Washington Examiner. Justice and Homeland Security officials hope the tighter union, made official Friday through a memorandum of understanding, leads to quicker detection of U.S. employers who discriminate against U.S. workers, as well as quicker punishment for immigrants who abuse or commit fraud... Hiring "temporary foreign visa workers over available, qualified U.S. workers may be discriminating in violation" of U.S. law, documents detailing the joint agreement...

    The instant analysis on cable TV of President Donald Trump's decision to dump the Iran deal had a weary resignation to it: He said he would do this. Indeed, he had. Trump repeatedly promised on the campaign trail to pull out of the deal and had made it a target from the time that President Barack Obama first entered into it in 2015. His exit from the agreement is another instance of the Trump paradox: The president who says more outlandish and untrue things than anyone who has ever occupied the office of the presidency is also extraordinarily determined to...

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has vowed to write a $4.5 million check to the United Nations body that oversees climate change negotiations to make up the shortfall in the agency's budget caused by U.S. funding cuts. President Donald Trump last year formally announced the U.S. would pull out of the Paris climate accord deal, stating that it was not fair. Congress also cut funding for the Bonn, Germany-based UNFCCC from $7.5 million in previous years to $3 million this year. "America made a commitment and as an American if the government's not going to do it we...

    U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., apparently has no regrets about his role in the release of the so-called Steele dossier, which is said to contain salacious allegations about then-candidate Donald Trump. In excerpts of his forthcoming book, “The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and Other Appreciations,” the 81-year-old senator – who is recuperating at home following recent cancer treatment and surgery – acknowledges that he delivered the information to then-FBI Director James Comey. “(A)nd I would do it again,” McCain writes, according to excerpts published by the Guardian. “Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,”...

    A video posted online Monday shows a Democratic Party leader wearing a T-shirt calling for an end to U.S. borders while participating in a local May Day parade in Minnesota last Friday. Democratic National Committee deputy chair Keith Ellison, D-Minn., wore a black shirt that read, "Yo no creo en fronteras." In English, that sentence translates to, "I don't believe in borders." Ellison, a progressive Democrat, said in March he supports a new type of welfare proposal that would have the government pay people a basic salary if technological advancements put them out of work. "I personally do think that...

    The Trump administration will require 57,000 Honduran people to return to their home country, after having lived in the U.S. with protected status since a 1999 hurricane, according to a report Friday morning. The administration will give Hondurans 12 to 18 months to return home, according to McClatchy. Hondurans are the second-largest national group of people who benefit from TPS. A DHS spokesperson told the Washington Examiner that Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen "has not yet made a decision." But a decision is due by July 6 and the government has yet to formally announce the reported policy change. Elaine Duke, former...

    An open borders group that has benefitted from U.S. taxpayer dollars and is funded by leftwing billionaire George Soros launched a smartphone application to help illegal immigrants avoid federal authorities. The app, Notifica (Notify), is described in a Laredo, Texas news article as a tool to protect immigrants living in the U.S. illegally by utilizing high tech and online social communications. With the click of a button, illegal aliens can alert family, friends and attorneys of encounters with federal authorities. “Immigration agents knocking at the door?” the news story asks. “Now, there’s an app for that, too.” The group behind...

    Texas and six other states have filed a lawsuit claiming former President Barack Obama violated the Constitution’s take care clause when he created the program protecting immigrants brought to the country illegally as minors. “If ever there were a violation of the president’s duty to ‘take care that the laws be faithfully executed,’ ” the lawsuit says, “this is it.” The suit, filed Tuesday in federal court in Brownsville, Texas, challenges the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), created by Obama in 2012. In prepared remarks, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said President Donald Trump has sought to phase...

    A lawsuit filed Tuesday by Texas and six other states may finally result in the long-overdue termination of the DACA program, which was created without legal authority by President Obama in 2012 to allow children brought into the U.S. illegally to temporarily remain here under certain conditions. The lawsuit does not address the question of whether allowing the roughly 700,000 illegal immigrants protected from deportation under DACA is a good policy or a bad one. Instead, the suit contends correctly that President Obama exceeded his authority under law and under the Constitution to create DACA without the approval of Congress...

    Texas has already caught its first break in its new lawsuit to stop the Obama-era DACA program, after the case was assigned to U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen. A Republican appointee to the bench, Judge Hanen has already ruled against a similar deportation amnesty in 2015. And during that case he expressed skepticism about DACA itself, saying it seemed to stray beyond the bounds of discretion then-President Obama had claimed in setting up the program.

    Lawsuit could undercut 2012 amnesty, end ongoing legal battles over Trump phaseoutTexas and a half-dozen other states filed a lawsuit Tuesday challenging the legality of the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty, opening up a new legal front in the increasingly messy battle over illegal immigration. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in southern Texas, asks judges to rule against the 2012 program that’s granted tentative legal status to more than 800,000 illegal immigrant “Dreamers.”
