  • Australian federal police raid Canberra home of intelligence officer

    The Australian federal police have raided the Canberra home of intelligence officer Cameron Gill... Cameron Gill was also listed as an adviser to then defence materiel minister, Mal Brough, in defence documents recording a meeting with former US ambassador John Berry in 2015. It is unclear whether Wednesday’s raid is connected to the Smethurst story, which reported that the heads of the defence and home affairs ministries had discussed draconian new powers to allow the Australian Signals Directorate to spy on Australian citizens for the first time.
  • Dear Customs and Border Patrol: Don’t Shy Away From Calling Them “Raids”

    Customs and Border Protection (CBP, which I still keep calling the Border Patrol for some reason) has been coming under fire from liberals over immigration enforcement, though probably not as frequently as ICE. Some recent criticism over the handling of illegal immigration raids on seven food processing companies in Mississippi appears to have set CBP back on their heels a bit. During an interview on State of the Union this weekend, acting CBP commissioner Mark Morgan pushed back on the description, saying that people shouldn’t call them “raids.” He prefers the term targeted law enforcement operations.

    President Trump on Friday defended the raids carried out by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) this week in Mississippi, calling them "a very good deterrent." Trump told reporters at the White House that the raids dissuade immigrants from entering and residing in the country illegally. “I want people to know that if they come into the United States illegally, they’re getting out. They’re going to be brought out. And this serves as a very good deterrent," he said. ICE agents arrested roughly 680 people in Wednesday's raids, which targeted workers in poultry processing plants. Around 300 detainees were released Thursday....

    Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti released a Twitter video Saturday explaining why he and the city's government won't be cooperating with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents as they carry out raids nationwide. President Trump initially announced raids on illegal immigrants in June, before backing off to give Congress more time to find a bipartisan solution. He then greenlit the operation for this weekend, and a senior administration official told Fox News the crackdown was underway in New York City and several other places. Garcetti, a Democrat, gave legal advice to those living in Los Angeles illegally and informed...

    Trump administration officials on Sunday defended the need for planned immigration raids expected to take place in 10 cities across the country even as they remained tight-lipped about details on the widespread action. Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of U.S. Customs and Immigration Services, said Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union" that he would not divulge any operational details of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids, additionally choosing not to answer a question about whether immigrant families will be separated. "In the same way I wasn't willing to talk about operational details, that would be an operational detail that I'm...

    (Reuters) - President Donald Trump said on Friday mass deportation roundups would begin “fairly soon” as U.S. migrant advocates vowed their communities would be “ready” when immigration officers come. Trump, who has made a hardline immigration stance a key issue of his presidency and 2020 re-election bid, postponed the operation last month after the date was leaked, but on Monday he said it would take place after July 4. “They’ll be starting fairly soon, but I don’t call them raids, we’re removing people, all of these people who have come in over the years illegally,” he told reporters at the...

    June 29 (UPI) — President Donald Trump said his postponed immigration raids in 10 major cities could start up on Independence Day unless “something pretty miraculous” happens in Congress on immigration reform. Trump said during a news conference on Saturday at the G-20 summit in Osaka, Japan that he was not optimistic about anything happening before then. Trump on June 22 postponed the raids for two weeks at the request of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats. “Unless we do something pretty miraculous, but the Democrats, it seems to me, they want to have open borders,” Trump said. “And...

    Another helpful public service from the municipal government of Los Angeles and the Governor of California. They’re making sure that some specific residents of the City of Angels are up to date with the latest information. The residents in question are the illegal aliens in the city and both the Mayor and the Governor are tipping them off about potential ICE raids and how they can thwart law enforcement. Isn’t that just the most helpful thing ever? (CBS Los Angeles) Gov. Newsom posted a video to Twitter alerting those of their rights when it comes to ICE stating, “CA will...

    On Friday, we reported on a leak to the media regarding President Donald Trump’s recent pledge that Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids were set to begin Sunday, targeting illegal aliens who have been ordered out of the country by immigration judges. We noted that though the president tweeted about the raids, details were still sketchy since he never revealed anything beyond the fact that they were going to happen — at some point. But as happens so often with this president, someone from the #NeverTrump bureaucracy leaked those details to the media, which, of course, quickly reported them because as...

    ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) is set to begin raids with court-ordered removals in 10 cities beginning Sunday. President Trump said on Monday evening in a pair of tweets that ICE will begin the process of removing millions illegal aliens who have illicitly entered the US. According to reports by CNN and WaPo, the raids will begin Sunday. “ICE agents will likely execute predawn raids starting Sunday, targeting as many as 2,000 migrant families facing deportation orders in as many as 10 U.S. cities, including Houston, Chicago, Miami and Los Angeles,” reported the Washington Post. “The agency is planning to...

    German authorities raided Deutsche Bank’s headquarters Thursday amid suspicions that its employees helped clients set up offshore companies that were used to launder hundreds of millions of euros. About 170 police officers, investigators and prosecutors swooped in on the bank’s offices in Frankfurt and premises in nearby Eschborn and Gross-Umstadt at 10 a.m. (0900 GMT), seizing electronic and paper records. The investigation emerged from an analysis of documents leaked from tax havens in recent years, including the 2016 “Panama Papers,” said Frankfurt prosecutors’ spokeswoman Nadja Niesen. It is focused on two Deutsche Bank employees, aged 50 and 46, and possibly...

    Libby Schaaf, the mayor of Oakland, California, made the daringly foolish choice to warn illegal immigrants in the Bay Area that Immigration Customs and Enforcement agents were on their way to raid the place. She posted the warning online 24 hours before ICE was scheduled to arrive.She shared the notice with the intent to "protect" citizens, not frighten them, she wrote."Oakland is safer when we share information, encourage community awareness, and care for our neighbors."It turns out the community is much "safer" having been swept by ICE, as a sizable number of the people the agents arrested in the...
