  • Senator Kevin de Leon on protecting undocumented immigrants, making college free

    La Voz News ^ | April 25, 2018 | Andrew Shinjo and Stephanie Lam
    California State Senator Kevin de Leon introduced himself to the DASB Senate on Wednesday, April 18. He formerly served as President pro tempore of the California State Senate, and is running to unseat incumbent U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein in the 2018 election. De Leon expressed his support for protecting undocumented immigrants and making college free. After Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he was going to deport 11 million criminal violent felons, de Leon said he decided to author Senate Bill No. 54, also known as the California “Sanctuary State” Bill. He called Sessions’ comment “fake news,” and said Sessions was...

    This week President Trump again described members of the heinous immigrant gang MS-13 as "animals." His remarks came in response to a complaint that California law forbids local law enforcement officers from notifying ICE that MS-13 gang members are in custody in county jails—resulting in their release back into the community instead of their deportation. Two high-ranking Democrats assailed Trump's remarks. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer characterized the President's words as "a slander against the kind of people who make our country great. Let's not forget that we are a nation of immigrants. If it weren't for the daring and...

    GOP seeks farm bill support amid immigration debate House Freedom Caucus members are trying to flex some muscle on immigration in exchange for support on the farm bill; A sprawling and subsidy-packed farm bill that also would have tightened food stamp rules failed in the House on Friday, in a dramatic defeat for GOP leaders who faced an uprising from conservatives over inaction on immigration. The farm bill, which was voted down 213-198, had been hanging in the balance as the conservative House Freedom Caucus threatened to withhold support without an agreement on an immigration bill vote. The GOP leadership,...

    More than half a million illegal immigrants of several dozen nationalities have been apprehended on John Ladd’s sprawling cattle ranch in southeastern Arizona. Ladd has also found 14 dead bodies on his 16,500-acre farm, which has been in his family for well over a century and sits between the Mexican border and historic State Route 92. The property shares a 10 ˝-mile border with Mexico, making it a popular route for human and drug smugglers evading a meager force of Border Patrol agents in the mountainous region. “As big as that number sounds, many more got away,” said National Border...
  • Sen. Bill Cassidy's Doable Idea for Paying for the Wall

    Townhall ^ | 05/17/2018 | John Dempsey
    One of President Trump’s signature promises from his 2016 campaign was to build that “tall, beautiful wall.” Often, he would receive loud, raucous praise when he talked about it. Trump has been in office for almost a year and a half now. He has received expected pushback from Democrats. But he has also felt resistance from some Republicans. Both parties have been stingy with funding, leaving very few options. However, Sen. Bill Cassidy recently proposed a creative idea. Sen. Cassidy suggested that money seized from drug cartels should be used to fund the wall. It is a simple idea that...
  • GOP Whip Scalise Slams Amnesty ‘Discharge Petition’

    GOP Whip Rep. Steve Scalise is opposing the pro-amnesty discharge petition which is being pushed by almost 20 business-first Republicans. A spokesman for the third-ranking GOP representative, Chris Bond, told Breitbart News: Whip Scalise has been very clear with members that a discharge petition is the wrong way to legislate. He is still actively promoting the Goodlatte-McCaul [immigration reform] bill, and is talking directly with members who haven’t signed onto the petition to urge them not to. The Goodlatte-McCaul bill provides vital border security, ends the visa lottery, and addresses DACA, and the Whip feels strongly that this is the...

    The GOP legislator who is pushing the “discharge petition” is telling lobbyists that he will have enough GOP signatures to force an amnesty vote in the House once this week’s primaries are finished, sources tell Breitbart News. California GOP Rep. Jeff Denham is the frontman in the petition effort, which needs just seven more GOP signatures to reach the 25 needed GOP signatures on the discharge petition. Those 25 signatures will allow the 193 Democrats to take the 218-vote majority control of the House floor and push through a no-strings amnesty for roughly 3 million younger ‘DACA’ illegals. That amnesty...

    .How do you compete in a Republican primary for a border state Senate seat? Martha McSally is offering one clue. The Arizona congresswoman took to the House floor last week to ask unanimous consent to remove her name from a bill that would provide legal status and an eventual path to citizenship to some children of undocumented immigrants. Until then, McSally was one of 34 Republicans to co-sponsor the Recognizing America's Children Act, seen as a new and conservative version of the DREAM Act. The only Democrat to sponsor the bill is fellow Arizona Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, whom McSally hopes...

    For the past couple weeks, the "Who Killed Hannibal" meme has been doing the rounds. You've probably seen it. It's a two-panel meme. In the first panel, Eric Andre is shooting Hannibal Buress. In the second panel, Andre is looking at the camera and asking, "Who killed Hannibal?" As described on "KnowYourMeme." The scene became an object labeling exploitable image macro in 2018 in which the characters are labeled differently and Andre's line of dialogue is substituted with variations of the phrasal template 'Why would X do this?' It represents the denial and victim-blaming that many people or institutions use...

    The word after talks with Italy's president today is that more time is needed for the Five Star Movement and the League to finalize details of a new government program and agree on the name of a new prime minister. Leaders Luigi Di Maio of Five Star and Matteo Salvini of the League have agreed not to be prime minister, another person will be named. Reuters quoted Di Maio: "We agree that we have to move quickly, but we are writing what will be the government program for the next five years. It's very important for us to do it...

    The two outsider parties, the Five Star Movement and the League, have reached agreement on a new government in Italy and plan to name a prime minister and cabinet within days. They have also reached agreement on a common set of policies which include standing up for Italy within the European Union seeking renegotiation of EU rules that hurt the country. A crackdown on illegal immigration with increased deportations, a flat tax to help individuals and businesses, a repeal of the 2011 pension reform law and opposition to new sanctions on Russia are also part of the agenda of a...

    SACRAMENTO — California lawmakers on Thursday gave final approval to a bill that would place strict limits on the disclosure of a person’s immigration status in open court, continuing the sanctuary state’s rebellion against the Trump administration’s illegal immigration crackdown. Protesters take over Sansome Street in front of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in San Francisco, Calif., Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018, to respond to the 150 detentions in Northern California by ICE this past week.

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Sunday said President Donald Trump and his administration are “heartless” toward immigrants. "I think it is heartless. I think the entire Trump views on immigration is heartless," Sanders said in an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union.” . . Last week, chief of staff John Kelly told NPR that “the laws are the laws” and that the technique of separating families who cross the border illegally is one that “no one hopes will be used extensively or for very long.“ Kelly also said during the interview that undocumented immigrants coming to the U.S. “don't...

    About half of all Americans now live under sanctuary policies that shield illegal immigrants from law enforcement, according to the latest tally of jurisdictions that the Federation for American Immigration Reform is releasing Thursday. FAIR calculates there were 564 states and municipalities that refuse some level of cooperation with federal immigration authorities as of April 1, up more than 200 since President Trump took office and up more than 500 compared with a decade ago. There were just 40 sanctuaries when President Obama took office. Entire states such as California, Illinois and New York are now sanctuaries, as well as...

    While I attended a speaking engagement in Northern California—really Northern, as in Siskiyou County, the heart of the original resistance against Sacramento’s lawlessness—fellow Southern California patriots were continuing their fight against the SB 54, aka the infamous Sanctuary State law. Jurisdictions throughout California have gone on record opposing the law, filing lawsuits or amicus curiae briefs with the Department of Justice, or outright overriding the law through resolutions and ordinances. Sadly, my home city of Torrance and the entire County of Los Angeles County have remained stalwart against the movement. The city of San Dimas (home of Bill and Ted—righteous!)...

    Calling himself a “politically incorrect conservative,” Georgia gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp said he could personally “round up criminal illegals” in his truck if needed in his latest campaign ad. Sitting in a Ford F350, Brian Kemp, the current Republican secretary of state, said, “I got a big truck, just in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take them home myself.” “Yep, I just said that,” Kemp said. “If you want a politically incorrect conservative, that’s me.”

    One of the toughest situations for our Customs and Border Patrol officers is when they are forced to deal with two categories of illegal aliens: unaccompanied minors and what immigration officials refer to as Family Units (FUs). The Family Unit designation applies to multiple, related illegal aliens including minor children. Contrary to the monstrous picture of our immigration enforcement officials painted by Democrats, nobody wants to see innocent children displaced or split up from their families. Unfortunately, in order to comply with our own laws and ensure the safety of minors, that’s what winds up happening all too often...

    A Republican representative on Wednesday filed a petition to force a House vote on immigration, going around leadership and the committee process. GOP Rep. Carlos Curbelo (Fla.) filed the motion, known as a discharge petition. He was joined by Republican Reps. Jeff Denham (Calif.), Will Hurd (Texas), Mario Díaz Balart (Fla.) and David Valadao (Calif.) as initial sponsors. If a majority of the House votes for the discharge petition, the chamber will then vote on an immigration proposal by Denham. Republicans who support immigration reform have grown increasingly frustrated at leadership over inaction on the issue. Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.)...
