    Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump appeared to soften his tone on immigration Saturday, saying he wouldn't issue mass deportations if president. "President Obama has mass deported vast numbers of people — the most ever, and it's never reported. I think people are going to find that I have not only the best policies, but I will have the biggest heart of anybody," Trump said in an interview with Bloomberg Politics Saturday. Pressed on whether he would issue mass deportations as he has called for in the past, Trump said: "No, I would not call it mass deportations." "We are going...

    Most coverage of Donald Trump's speech in New York Wednesday has focused on his attacks on Hillary Clinton. Or the fact that he read the speech from a teleprompter. Or the fact that it came amid a period of disorder and change in his campaign. But Trump included actual substance in the speech — new policy proposals and promises — that escaped many observers. In a series of pledges to take action in his first 100 days as president, Trump said he would move on trade, business regulation, energy, and several other topics. One area in which Trump promised to...

    Caroline May23 Jun 2016 The Senate’s most vocal opponent of President Barack Obama’s immigration policies, cheered the Supreme Court’s decision Thursday to continue blocking Obama’s executive amnesty programs from moving forward. “Today’s decision in United States v. Texas is not just a victory for Texas, Alabama, and a majority of the States in this great nation who challenged the lawless actions of the Obama Administration, but a victory for the American people and for the rule of law,” Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said Thursday of the divided Court’s 4-4 decision. Though sated by the temporary victory, the Alabama lawmaker stressed...

    Full title: Illegal Alien Who Butchered Conn. Woman Not Deported After Serving 15 Yrs. for Murder Because Haiti Refused to Repatriate An illegal immigrant who stabbed a young Connecticut woman to death after completing a 15-year sentence for murder couldn’t be deported by the U.S. government because his homeland, which receives billions in aid from Uncle Sam, wouldn’t take him back—three times! So federal authorities released the violent criminal, a Haitian national, and didn’t even bother tracking his whereabouts allowing him to commit yet another heinous crime. Now, a year after an innocent woman was viciously butchered to death in...

    ON ONE level, it’s unsurprising that the Supreme Court deadlocked 4 to 4, after an appeals court split 2 to 1, in considering President Obama’s sweeping executive action to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation. As a legal matter, this was not an easy call.What makes the outcome so depressing for the country, and such a standard-bearer for failed governance, is that as a policy matter, it shouldn’t be hard at all. Immigrants have been and continue to be, on balance, an overwhelmingly positive force for the nation’s social and economic health. It would be in their interest and...

    (CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama said Thursday that despite the U.S. Supreme Court’s tie vote, which essentially blocks his immigration plan, the millions of illegal immigrants that he sought to make legal with his executive action will remain a low priority for deportation by his administration. “Enforcement priorities developed by my administration are not affected by this ruling. This means that the people who might have benefited from the expanded deferred action policies – long-term residents raising children who are Americans or legal residents – they will remain low priorities for enforcement.

    The president insists Thursday's decision wouldn't affect other 'deferred action' programs. Legal experts say he's probably wrong. When it comes to the effect of the Supreme Court's immigration decision on the millions of young “Dreamers” who were brought illegally to the United States as kids, President Barack Obama is hoping that saying something often enough wills it to be true. During his abruptly announced appearance in the White House briefing room Thursday, Obama said no fewer than six times that the court's deadlock effectively killing his second round of immigration executive actions would have no impact on Round One: his...

    A lawyer for Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Arizona’s Maricopa County, who first challenged Barack Obama’s immigration amnesty strategy that was blocked on Thursday by the U.S. Supreme Court, says it is good the justices “stood up to an out-of-control president who rules like he is King George III in 1776.” The court was split 4-4 so the resulting ruling is that the decision from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is left standing. That affirmed a lower court’s decision that Obama could not implement an expanded amnesty program with orders from his agencies and departments. WND had broken the...

    Analysis President Barack Obama’s ambitious plan to overhaul U.S. immigration policy for millions of foreign nationals living in the U.S. came close to crashing down Thursday in a Supreme Court decision so brief that it was barely mentioned by Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr. If the policy is not yet entirely doomed, it could be after it is formally returned to a federal judge in Brownsville, Texas, who is sure to be guided by an appeals court ruling that already has said, in essence, that the government probably will lose. Technically, the policy might have another test before the...

The Supreme Court’s tie vote effectively kills Obama’s plan to shield millions more immigrants in the U.S. illegally from deportation and granted them work permits. But Obama says the opinion doesn’t change his administration’s enforcement priorities.

    The Supreme Court on Thursday blocked President Obama’s immigration executive actions, in a tie decision that delivers a win to states challenging his plan to give a deportation reprieve to millions of illegal immigrants. The justices' one-sentence opinion on Thursday marks a major setback for the administration, effectively killing the plan for the duration of Obama's presidency. The judgment could have significant political and legal consequences in a presidential election year highlighted by competing rhetoric over immigration. As the ruling was announced from the bench, pro-immigration activists filled the sidewalk in front of the court, some crying as the ruling...

    Dealing a major blow to President Obama’s controversial executive immigration order, the U.S. Supreme Court announced Thursday it had failed to produce a majority opinion on the policy — meaning that the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals’ November 2015 decision rejecting the policy stands. The program had been blocked in February 2015 by a Brownsville-based federal judge, Andrew Hanen, days before it was scheduled to begin. In a one-sentence opinion, the Supreme Court declared, "The judgment is affirmed by an equally divided Court." The ruling was immediately hailed by conservatives across the country.

    California Gov.

The Golden State will be asking the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for a “State Innovation Waiver” under Section 1332 of the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare. This would allow illegal immigrants in the state to purchase private health insurance plans from the California exchange, Covered California,...

    And so it begins. This is rampant in Europe and will be here, too, if Obama continues to import hundreds of thousands of these invaders. Why would they behave differently here? In Muslim countries, rape victims are at fault. The Quran allows Muslim men to use non-Muslim women as sex slaves, “captives of the right hand,” 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). But the even greater irresponsibility is that of the establishment that made people in Idaho think there was no risk in being around these migrants.

    Trump is in a general election environment now. And it appears he might be making some sort of transition to a new Muslim proposal, to refine the original Muslim ban into a radical Islam ban, in an effort to appeal to a wider electorate while not losing primary voters. The essence of governing is compromise, Trump might argue, and while he still believes in his original proposal, he knows there is substantial opposition. So here is the compromise: a ban on immigration from X countries and areas of the world with substantially radicalized populations. It seems unlikely Trump would lose...

Despite efforts by the U.S. and its allies to strike the terror group, its “terrorism capability and global reach” have not been hampered, he said at a hearing before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.

    Sen. Angus King (I-Maine), no relation, a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said that his committee had been briefed on the Florida massacre and that it appeared Salman had “some knowledge” of what her husband was planning. Meanwhile, a federal grand jury reportedly was investigating the early Sunday bloodbath at the Pulse nightclub, in which Mateen was killed by cops. Law-enforcement sources in West Palm Beach, Fla., said security was beefed up at the federal courthouse there Wednesday over the possibility Salman might be hauled in to face charges — and would be again Thursday.

    The Clintons, Abdurahman Alamoudi, and the Myth of "Moderate" Islam Lawrence AusterMonday, Nov. 6, 2000 When Abdurahman Alamoudi, friend and sometime adviser on Islamic affairs to Hillary Rodham Clinton, stood before a Muslim crowd in Lafayette Park across from the White House this week and passionately declared his support for the terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah, he was revealing the true face of "moderate" Islam. He was also revealing the blindness, or rather the willful complicity, of America's political elites, particularly the Clintons, who have welcomed these Islamic "moderates" into our midst and helped raise them to important positions...

    One of the sitting members on the Homeland Security Advisory Council’s (HSAC) Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism is a 25-year-old immigrant of Syrian heritage who said that the 9/11 attacks “changed the world for good” and has consistently disparaged America, free speech and white people on social media. Laila Alawa was one of just 15 people tapped to serve on the newly-formed HSAC Subcommittee on Countering Violent Extremism in 2015 — the same year she became an American citizen. Just last week, the subcommittee submitted a report to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, recommending that the DHS avoid...

    UNICEF says most of the children migrants who have crossed the Mediterranean Sea from Libya to Italy this year were unaccompanied by adults, making them vulnerable to abuse and exploitation. The children's agency says 92 percent of some 7,600 children who made the dangerous and often deadly crossing between January and May were unaccompanied minors. Spokeswoman Sarah Crowe told reporters Tuesday in Geneva that most were boys aged 15 to 17, and came from Somalia, Nigeria and Eritrea. She said boys and girls have faced prostitution, pedophilia rings and gangsterism.
