  • Booker: The DHS Secretary Is Pretty Much A Nazi Enabler

    Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ) is not done with DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. Not even close. The intense tantrum from Booker at the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday was due to two things; 1) He’s running for president in 2020; and 2) the “tears of rage” that flowed when he heard about the president’s remarks about immigrants from “s**thole countries,” and why are we letting them come here. Nielsen couldn’t recall the president using this exact language when he said it during a meeting between Democrats and Republicans over immigration, the obstacle that could shut down the government later tonight.

    U.S. health officials on Friday said they were revoking legal guidance issued by the Obama Administration that had sought to discourage states from trying to defund organizations that provide abortion services, such as Planned Parenthood. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) officials also said the department is issuing a new regulation aimed at protecting healthcare workers’ civil rights based on religious and conscience objections. The regulation protects the rights of healthcare workers from providing abortion, euthanasia, and sterilization, the officials said during a media call with reporters. The announcement comes one day after HHS said it was...

    When their oaths to uphold the Constitution of the United States of America, it's taken for granted that politicians are also tasked with protecting the life and liberty of those they represent. But when it comes to protecting the public from those who've entered the country illegally and subsequently committed crimes, too many our politicians believe that enforcement of our immigration laws is optional. The problem is countless of Americans have been impacted by the presence of illegal aliens; many have had personal property stolen and they physical damages range from varying degrees of injury from drunk drivers, assault, rapes,...

    On Tuesday, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed that DHS had spoken to the Department of Justice to see if they would be able to level criminal charges against representatives of sanctuary cities who failed to cooperate with the deportation of illegal immigrants in their cities. In answering questions, Nielsen mentioned that she did not recall President Trump using the term "shithole countries" to refer to immigrants from Haiti and Africa.  However, she did tell Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL), “I don't remember the specific words [Trump used].  What I was struck with, frankly as I'm sure you were as well,...

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts. “The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee. Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer.

    RUSH: Grab sound bite number 21. Kirstjen Nielsen (she’s the director of Homeland Security) testified today before the Senate Judiciary Committee on immigration. She was in the meeting that Durbin claims Trump used that derogatory term to describe countries. She did really, really well today. I have three sound bites. But here’s one. This is an exchange with Patrick “Leaky” Leahy. LEAHY: Did President Trump use this word — or a substantially similar word — to describe citizen countries? NIELSEN: I did not hear that word used. No, sir. LEAHY: I’m not… That’s not the question. Did he use anything...

Cory Booker, D-N.J., was enraged during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday and admitted he was "seething with anger" over President Trump's alleged "shithole comments" and a Cabinet official's statement that she did not recall the incident. “I had tears of rage," Booker bellowed at Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen in reference to when he first heard of Trump's "shithole countries" remark last week. "And for you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss the questions of my colleagues, with tens of millions Americans hurting right now because they're worried about what happened...

    Seventeen years after granting "temporary protected status" to nearly 200,000 Salvadoran citizens who had fled earthquakes in 2001 or who were already here illegally and claimed they were unable to return to their homeland because of civil strife, America is setting a deadline: Get right with the law or go home. As if we haven't shown enough generosity to these provisional guests in our home, the Department of Homeland Security gave the Salvadorans until September 2019 to get their affairs in order. But the usual suspects in the permanent Gang of Amnesty -- identity-politics Democrats, Big Business Republicans, anti-rule of...

EARLIER 1/8/2018 2:20 a.m.: SAN DIEGO (AP) — The Trump administration faces a Monday deadline on whether to extend protections that would allow nearly 200,000 Salvadorans to stay in the U.S. legally. Citizens of El Salvador are currently the beneficiaries of the Temporary Protected Status program, which provides humanitarian relief for foreigners whose countries are hit with natural disasters or strife. The administration ended the protections for citizens of Haiti and Nicaragua last...

    Kansas Secretary of State and gubernatorial candidate Kris Kobach says the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity will be “handed off” to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to “more effectively” investigate voter fraud without being “stonewalled” by Democrats. In an interview with Breitbart News, Kobach said the news that President Trump is dissolving the voter fraud commission should not be grounds for leftist organizations and Democrats — who sought to stop the investigations into double voting and ballots cast by non-citizens — to celebrate, as the investigations will continue under DHS. “What’s happening is a tactical shift where the...

    As Americans pack their bags for holiday travel, a new report is raising key questions about a pilot program that scans the faces of international travelers. The report, from Georgetown Law’s Center on Privacy and Technology, criticizes the scope and execution of Homeland Security’s biometric exit pilot program. The program, currently running at nine airports around the country, uses facial recognition technology to identify passengers leaving on international flights. Homeland Security says the program, which it plans to expand, can catch travelers fraudulently using another person’s personal documents. But the report questions whether Homeland Security is vested with the power...

    Twenty seven-year-old Akayed Ullah, who attempted to suicide bomb (I say attempted because he survived after injuring himself and four other people) the New York City subway system during rush hour Monday morning, was an immigrant from Bangladesh. He came to the United States in 2011 through family chain migration. “DHS can confirm that the suspect was admitted to the United States after presenting a passport displaying an F43 family immigrant visa in 2011. The suspect is a Lawful Permanent Resident from Bangladesh who benefited from extended family chain migration," Homeland Security Press Secretary Tyler Houlton confirmed. During the daily...

Women wrote in the Nov. 28 letter that they are driven out of the national security field by men who "use their power to assault at one end of the spectrum and perpetuate -- sometimes unconsciously -- environments that silence, demean, belittle or neglect women at the other."

    One week after Hurricane Katrina made landfall in August 2005, President George W. Bush consulted with his team of crisis advisers and inundated the Gulf Coast with cheap, illegal alien labor. Bush’s August decision to lift the Davis-Bacon wage law made it very easy for contractors to hire cheap labor. Mike Chertoff, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), quickly suspended sanctions on the employers who did hire illegal aliens. The result was another flood – this time not of water, but of illegal aliens, 30,000 of which came to the Gulf Coast to take cleanup and blue-collar...
