  • Trump To Sign ‘Buy American, Hire American’ Executive Orders (H1B Visas Finally Targeted)

    04/18/2017 7:23:18 AM PDT · by Enlightened1 · 50 replies
    President Donald Trump will sign an executive order in Wisconsin on Tuesday directing a government-wide review aimed at putting new teeth back into decades-old “Buy American” and “Hire American” directives. The 220-day review process, which could lead to additional executive orders and possibly legislation, will focus on preventing foreign workers with H-1B visas from, as one senior administration official put it, “undercutting American labor at less cost,” which the official labeled as “an abuse” of the current system. “This is a clear statement from the president of the United States to shore up some of these abuses,” the official continued....

    Mandatory quarantines without input from your local health department are on the way, thanks to a last minute Executive Order passed by outgoing President Barack Hussein Obama. In fact, Obama gave the Centers for Disease Control permission to detain anyone with even such symptoms as "headaches, cramps or fevers!" AIDS was NOT on the list of communicable diseases which carry such strict federal quarantine stipulations. In fact, finding the list of nine diseases that permit heavy handed, federal health authorities "to apprehend, isolate, and quarantine" on the CDC website is difficult. However, in another location appears the list of diseases...
  • Trump to Rescind Obama Climate Orders with EO on Energy Independence

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Donald Trump will roll out a new executive order on Tuesday that eliminates several Obama-era climate change orders in favor of policies centered on energy independence. A senior administration official said that the coming EO will review some and take other Obama executive orders “off the books immediately to the extent we can,” while also looking forward to providing a “beginning framework for a strategy on energy.” Under the new order, each executive department and agency in the U.S. government will be responsible for identifying impediments to energy production. Energy policy under the order will stay...

    "The Government's reply brief in John Doe v. Trump - before Judge William Conley in the Western District of Wisconsin - was filed late last night just minutes before the deadline. Incredibly, in an act of sheer deep state sabotage, it does not cite to, rely upon, or draw the attention of the Court to, the very statute that specifically bars asylum seekers and asylees from suing the US Government or its officers. That statute is 8 U.S.C. 1158(d)7. This section of US Code has been cited in multiple federal cases regarding asylum issues. It is beyond question the most...
  • Plaintiff behind Trump travel ban runs Muslim Brotherhood mosque

    The main plaintiff in the Hawaii case blocking President Trump’s revised temporary travel ban is an imam with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. The irony is hard to miss: Trump has talked about declaring the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization, and now it is a Brotherhood-backed imam who is playing a key role in blocking his executive order on immigration. Imam Ismail Elshikh, 39, leads the largest mosque in Hawaii and claims he is suffering “irreparable harm” from the president’s executive order, which places a 90-day ban on travel to the U.S. from six countries.

    Law is dead The first Trump immigration EO was stopped by a Bush-appointed judge out of the Seattle area. His legal reasoning was awful, and he had a background advocating for refugees, but nonetheless he made the ruling and an appeals court let it stand. Rather than defy the courts as his predecessor did, Trump had his administration draw up a new order that addressed the issues the court raised in the first one. So that would eliminate all possibility of the new order being halted by judges, right?

    President Donald Trump’s executive order halting the importation of refugees from six terror-exporting countries also includes a section requiring the government to publicly release information on crimes committed by foreign nationals, including honor killings of women. This lets the government “be more transparent with the American people and to implement more effectively policies and practices that serve the national interest,” the order states. Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions must work together to provide the public with a report on foreign nationals charged with and convicted of terrorism-related offenses, including those who associate...

    Trump's new travel ban executive order The Trump administration plans to roll out its revised travel ban Monday, White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway said in an interview  It will go into effect on Mar. 16, 10 days from signing, as opposed to immediately; This travel ban will not apply to Iraq, based on its enhanced screening and reporting measures, Conway said. That would leave six countries from which individuals will be banned for 90 days, if there are no other changes to the countries listed: Iran, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Yemen. Syrian refugees will be treated the same way...

    According to a report that's out, President Donald Trump's executive order that eliminates two regulations for every new rule imposed could result in zero net regulatory costs this fiscal year. On Tuesday, the American Action Forum released a report titled "Getting to $0" demonstrating how Executive Order 13771, using 2006 as a model, could result in zero net regulatory costs for the current fiscal year. The report, written by Sam Batkins, director of regulatory policy at the American Action Forum, claims that EO's on regulation and the Congressional Review Act could bring regulatory costs to $0 by October 1, 2017.  Contrast...

    The White House seems poised to issue a revised executive order restricting visas from seven terrorist havens until sufficient vetting procedures are in place. Yet one related issue has not been fully explored: The way the arguments over the original order may have been sabotaged in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. On its way to upholding an injunction issued against the original executive order, the Ninth Circuit failed to even discuss the relevant federal immigration provision that authorized the president’s action. At oral argument, the government was represented by career lawyer August Flentje. As Paul Mirengoff at Powerline...

From the Hill: A survey from Harvard–Harris Poll provided exclusively to The Hill found that 80 percent of voters say local authorities should have to comply with the law by reporting to federal agents the illegal immigrants they come into contact with…A majority — 52 percent — say they support Trump’s two executive orders allowing for the construction of a southern border wall, increasing the number of immigration officers by 10,000 and finding a way to revoke federal funds for sanctuary cities.The crackdown on sanctuary cities is the...

    President Donald Trump will order the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to begin dismantling a regulation central to former President Barack Obama’s plan to fight global warming. A source briefed on the matter told The Washington Post one of the orders “will instruct the Environmental Protection Agency to begin rewriting the 2015 regulation that limits greenhouse-gas emissions from existing electric utilities” and order “the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to lift a moratorium on federal coal leasing.” Trump will issue a second order instructing the EPA and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to rewrite the “Waters of the U.S.”...

    This week’s ruling by the activist U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, aka the 9th Circus was another indicator of the absolute fantasy world liberals inhabit every day. Judges Canby, Clifton and Friedland upheld a nationwide temporary injunction on President Trump’s executive order. In its unanimous decision, the three-judge panel denied the Department of Justice’s bid for an emergency stay, saying that the president’s previous remarks about a Muslim ban potentially could be used as evidence, saying rights attached to non-citizens and saying the government did not present evidence that nationals from the affected countries perpetrated attacks in...

    By refusing to reinstate the immigration executive order, Appeals Court completely ignores both statute and facts The left is pretty excited right about now, and I suppose you can’t blame them. When they can’t win elections or pass their agenda via legislation, what they usually do is run to the courts. It matters not at all that it’s not the job of courts to overturn the will of voters or legislators. The only thing that matters to the left is getting their way, and they’ll be more than happy to see judges make up law from whole cloth if that’s...

    "Can a limited government conservative be happy with the results of Trump’s executive actions after questioning and criticizing President Obama’s use of the pen for eight years? That is the central question that seems to be being asked on social media over the whirlwind first three full days of the Trump presidency. The answer is like all things complicated. In order to arrive at an answer, however, some facts are needed. Some of the questions conservatives should be asking include: Are all executive actions similar? What is the difference between a presidential memorandum and an “executive order?” Where does Trump’s...

    Donald Trump promised during the campaign to get tough on radical Islamic terror groups as well as force Iran to renegotiate terms on Barack Obama’s nuclear deal. The next executive orders from the president may address both pledges — and create more controversy. According to Reuters, Trump will designate the entire Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps as a foreign terrorist organization (FTO), expanding current sanctions applied at the moment to only its Quds Force: A designation of the entire IRGC as a terrorist group would potentially have much broader implications, including for the 2015 nuclear deal negotiated between Iran and...

    Histrionics having no effect whatsoever It bears repeating because it’s easy to forget: The loudest among us are not necessarily the most numerous. In fact, they’re usually not, because if they were in the majority they’d be winning, and they wouldn’t be so hysterical. If that’s true, so is this corollary: The most hysterical have gotten that way precisely because they can’t think of a reasoned method of persuading anyone. They can get lots of attention - hysterics usually can - but just because people are looking at you and talking about you doesn’t mean they have any sympathy for...

    Faced with President Trump’s executive orders suspending immigration from several Muslim nations and ordering the building of a border wall, and his threats to terminate the North American Free Trade Agreement, even Alexander Hamilton, our nation’s most ardent proponent of executive power, would be worried by now. Article II of the Constitution vests the president with “the executive power,” but does not define it. Most of the Constitution instead limits that power, as with the president’s duty “to take care that the laws are faithfully executed,” or divides that power with Congress, as with making treaties or appointing Supreme Court...
