  • Acting DHS Deputy Sec’y Cuccinelli: Trump EO Puts Defunding Localities That Won’t Enforce Law ‘Firmly on the Table’

    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Ingraham Angle,” acting Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Ken Cuccinelli stated that President Trump’s executive order on monuments has put withholding federal dollars from local governments that are not enforcing the law “firmly on the table.” Cuccinelli said, “Whether it’s Washington, D.C., or cities all around the country, you’ve seen federal reinforcements playing a role, whether it’s surveillance that they’re sharing with state and local law enforcement, or whether they’re taking the responsibility on themselves. So, when you go beyond that to some of the federal dollars at stake, you obviously bring a...
  • Trump Administration to Asylum Seekers: Find a Homeless Shelter

    As the Trump administration readies a plan to bar many asylum seekers from working, it has some advice for them: Start getting familiar with “homelessness resources.” Currently, asylum seekers are allowed to apply for work permits 150 days after submitting their asylum applications. A new rule released Monday by the Department of Homeland Security would extend the waiting period to a full year, and it would prohibit work permits for asylum seekers who cross the border without authorization, which is often the only way for them to avoid waiting in dangerous border cities to request asylum at official ports of...

  • Oversight Committee Democrats demand DHS, DOJ investigate white supremacist involvement in protests

    Democrats on the House Oversight and Reform Committee are requesting that the Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) launch an investigation into reports of white supremacist groups interfering to instigate violence at peaceful protests. The Democrats said the Trump administration is making baseless accusations that antifa is involved in an “effort to delegitimize” the peaceful protests and to “win cheap political points” while ignoring the involvement of white supremacist groups. “The Trump Administration’s decision to ignore the involvement of white supremacist groups in these protests in favor of spreading wildly exaggerated rumors about Antifa has only...
  • DHS report: Antifa, opportunists causing violence at riots - No evidence of white supremacists

    Violence being committed amid nationwide unrest has not been perpetrated by “white supremacists,” according to a new analysis. In an assessment of the protests, which have at times turned into all-out riots, the Department of Homeland Security dumped cold water on a narrative that groups of white supremacists have been engaging in widespread disturbances, Reuters reported. After viewing some of the department findings, the outlet reported that “opportunists,” including those affiliated with the far-left group antifa, are “contributing to the violence.” “There was no evidence, however, that white supremacists were causing violence at any of the protests, the document said.”...

    In the movie “Cliff Hanger,” John Lithgow’s character, Qualen, utters a line that reminds me of how unscrupulous Democrat muckety-mucks like the Clintons and Obama operate. Qualen says, “Kill a few people, they call you a murderer. Kill a million and you’re a conqueror.” Similarly, with the Clintons and Obama, commit a few crimes, they call you a petty criminal. Commit a million and you’re untouchable. Well, maybe not a million—then again. You get the point. We’re now seeing a cascade of unearthed evidence of what seems to be an apparent three-plus-year coup attempt by the Obama administration and media...

    U.S. officials believe China covered up the extent of the coronavirus outbreak — and how contagious the disease is — to stock up on medical supplies needed to respond to it, intelligence documents show. Chinese leaders “intentionally concealed the severity” of the pandemic from the world in early January, according to a four-page Department of Homeland Security intelligence report dated May 1 and obtained by The Associated Press. The revelation comes as the Trump administration has intensified its criticism of China, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo saying Sunday that that country was responsible for the spread of disease and...

    Trump turned over nothing. Without a declaration of martial law, Trump has no authority to tell the governors how to run their states. It’s called Federalism…the way the country was set up. This, however, does not give the governors a license to ignore the Constitution. Their abuses will have to be taken to court. On April 22nd Oregon initiated a plan to remove children from foster homes if one of the parents comes down with coronavirus. The state of Oregon will remove the children and place them with “substitute` care” if the parents are deemed unable to support them. This...

    President Donald Trump suggested the possibility of an "injection" of disinfectant into a person infected with the coronavirus as a deterrent to the virus during his daily briefing Thursday. Trump made the remark after Bill Bryan, who leads the Department of Homeland Security's science and technology division, gave a presentation on research his team has conducted that shows that the virus doesn't live as long in warmer and more humid temperatures. Bryan said, "The virus dies quickest in sunlight," leaving Trump to wonder whether you could bring the light "inside the body." "So supposing we hit the body with a...

    While we were sleeping, President Trump's Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the US Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS) gave H-1B and other visa holders a full 240 day extension to stick around and take new jobs for US citizens. When everyone was laid off or even fired over the past month, visa workers had 60 days to find new work or leave. Visa employers and groups pushing them as cheap alternative to American workers have been asking for 180 day extensions. The Trump administration just gave them 240 days! So much for the HIRE AMERICAN in Buy American, Hire...

    After 9/11, life in America changed in significant ways. Assumptions of our safety and security were shaken to their roots. Our behavior and our beliefs were greatly modified. Air travel was completely transformed, as well as security measures in our buildings, sporting events, and schools. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and its sub-agency, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) were created. Our freedoms and privacy were negatively altered with the introduction of the Patriot Act. Our heightened fear resulted in increased government authority. What will our post-Wuhan world look like? When we emerge from our erstwhile sanctuaries like nuclear war...
  • Illegal Border Crossings Drop by Half as New Coronavirus U.S.-Mexico Border Policies Go Into Effect: DHS

    A Trump administration official said Sunday that illegal border crossings have dropped by half as the strictest U.S.-Mexico border policies yet went into place amid the coronavirus pandemic, but there was confusion about how it was all working. Anyone caught crossing the border illegally is to be immediately returned back to Mexico or Canada, according to the new restrictions based on an order from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention late Friday. According to Mark Morgan, the acting head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the decision applies to all migrants. “We’re not going to take you into our...

    Just how prevalent were these rumors? Paul Bedard wrote about them last night at the Washington Examiner, but he apparently heard about contingency plans for a national lockdown from his sources on Capitol Hill. Earlier today, Donald Trump replied “I don’t think so” when asked if a national lockdown was getting any consideration. “Essentially you’ve done that in California, you’ve done that in New York. Those are really two hotbeds”: A national lockdown would necessarily require the Department of Homeland Security to manage, and Acting Secretary Chad Wolf says nothing of the sort is being planned at all.

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is trying to accelerate the delivery of H-1B foreign workers to U.S. and Indian companies — despite the crashing economy and abundant evidence that many American graduates are facing discrimination and exclusion from software jobs.The acceleration was announced March 16 when DHS’s immigration services agency announced it would limit the use of “premium processing” to “help us to reduce overall H-1B processing times.”Under premium processing, companies can pay a premium to jump the line for roughly 100,000 H-1B work visas each year. But the line-jumping slows the routine award of H-1B visas to the...

    Former Acting Department of Homeland Security Inspector General Charles Edwards was indicted last week on 16-counts of fraud, theft of government property, identity theft and more. "A federal grand jury in the District of Columbia returned a 16-count indictment against a former Acting Inspector General for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and a former subordinate for their alleged theft of proprietary software and confidential databases from the U.S. government as part of a scheme to defraud the U.S. government," the Department of Justice released in a statement.

    Former Department of Homeland Security Inspector General Charles Edwards and his former aide Murali Yamazula Venkata were indicted Friday on charges of stealing government property to defraud the U.S. government. Yamazula was also charged with destroying records. The indictments handed down by the Justice Department allege that Edwards and Venkata were working with others within the inspector general’s office to orchestrate a scheme to steal confidential and proprietary software that includes sensitive information on government employees. Prosecutors say Edwards was attempting to resell a revamped package of the software as a product of his firm, Delta Business Solutions to the...

    The Department of Justice today issued a final rule to implement the Attorney General’s authority provided by the bipartisan DNA Fingerprint Act of 2005 to authorize the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to collect DNA samples from certain non-United States persons it detains.  Once implemented, this rule will facilitate federal, state, and local investigative and crime reduction efforts.“Today’s rule assists federal agencies in implementing longstanding aspects of our immigration laws as passed by bipartisan majorities of Congress,” said Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen.  “Its implementation will help to enforce federal law with the use of science.”As a result...
