    The plaintiffs argue that former President Obama’s September 22, 2016 “presidential determination” that he wanted Congress to fund the resettlement of up to 110,000 refugees in the United States in FY 2017 means that Congress must fund the resettlement of 110,000 refugees this fiscal year, and that President Trump has absolutely no say in the matter. The facts and the law say otherwise. HIAS wants more money from the federal government in FY 2017, and claims in the complaint that it was promised that money by the Department of State. HIAS and IRAP fail to acknowledge in their complaint that...

    Is it illegal to solicit non-citizens to register and vote in American elections? I suppose that it depends on the laws of each state, but really shouldn’t the Nebraska AG start looking into a campaign launched by Nebraska’s Democrats? Chris Pandolfo reports for Conservative Review: The Nebraska Democratic Party is welcoming refugees with open arms, welcome baskets … and voter registration forms. A donation drive organized by the NDP collected some 50 gift baskets for refugees. Each contained items like diapers and kitchen utensils, a welcome letter from the Nebraska Democratic Party signed by its chairwoman Jane Kleeb, and a...

    Portland officials estimate that more than 100 asylum seekers may be cut off from the state’s General Assistance program after July 1 and question whether the city can step in to help without violating federal law. Immigrants who have come to the United States legally to seek asylum from persecution have long received General Assistance in Portland. But it wasn’t until 2015 that assistance was solidified in Maine law. However, under the new law, asylum seekers can only receive benefits for 24 months. That means some asylum seekers will become ineligible for state assistance during the fiscal year that begins...

    The danger posed to police in the notorious Swedish No-Go Zone of Rinkeby will likely mean they will not be allowed to use public transportation to get to work and may have to be driven to the station daily for their personal safety. The heavily migrant-populated Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby in Sweden is often cited as a textbook example of a No-Go Zone where police are constantly under threat of attack from residents. To deal with the danger, the police have planned a new fortified police station. But police are at such risk it may not safe for them to...

    Starbuck’s CEO, Howard Schultz, has signaled he may have made a decision between his duty to the shareholders and nearly-200,000 worldwide employees of the multi-billion dollar company in favor of a political career. Schultz will be stepping down from his position in April of this year after a series of politically calculated, but financially devastating moves that found the coffee giant on the wrong side of the consumer one too many times, throwing the company’s stock into free fall. Two years ago, the Starbucks brand took a hit after initiating a policy requiring young baristas to “engage” in discussion and...
  • Starbucks CEO stands by pledge to hire refugees

    NEW YORK (AP) — Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz presided over his last annual shareholder meeting as head of the company Wednesday by standing by its pledge to hire refugees and expanding on previously announced goals to hire veterans and at-risk youth. The moves underscored the progressive image Schultz has helped cultivate for Starbucks as he prepares to cede the CEO job next month to Starbucks President Kevin Johnson. Schultz, who will remain executive chairman, defended the promise on refugees to a shareholder who criticized his willingness to have the company's reputation "take a beating" over it. The pledge came after...

    Starbucks Corp. plans to hire more U.S. military veterans and their spouses after facing backlash over its promise to hire refugees. Presiding over his last annual shareholders meeting as chief executive on Wednesday, Howard Schultz said Starbucks will hire 15,000 veterans and their spouses by 2025, on top of more than 10,000 hired since a pledge he made four years ago. The new drive comes after some customers threatened to boycott Starbucks for its January pledge to hire 10,000 refugees globally over the next five years. The coffee giant made the commitment following President Donald Trump’s first executive order, banning...

During testimony, we learned disturbing allegations against him. A federal investigator testified that Omar Faraj Saeed Al Hardan, 24, wanted to blow up the Galleria and Sharpstown Mall with a remote bomb. According to testimony, Al Hardan would put the bomb in a trash can and detonate it using a cell phone. They also say he received military training on how to use an AK-47 late last year at a farm just outside of Houston. Agents...

    In 2015, Hungary received nearly 1,800 asylum applications from migrants per 100,000 people in the local population, according to BBC News, which is the most of any European nation during the refugee crisis last year. Last summer, Hungary told the European Union it would stop accepting migrants. But refugees aren’t just stopping in Hungary — they’re traveling through the country, too. Hungary serves as a stepping stone on the path from southeastern Europe to central and western European countries such as Germany, France and the United Kingdom. Many Hungarian nationals have been irked by the influx of migrants, and Hungary...

Professor Kotsko detailed his beliefs in an article titled, "How will we know it’s over?" Professor Kotsko "The Trump budget proposal is a nightmare — petty and vindictive, short-sighted and cruel," he begins his piece. "Inexpensive programs that literally save lives are being...

Here is what you need to know about the rulings from these judges: 1.)

    A ruling by a federal judge in Hawaii that blocked President Donald Trump’s travel ban was announced less than 48 hours after Barack Obama made a surprise visit to Honolulu, leading some to speculate that the former president may have schemed with the judge he originally appointed. Hours before Trump’s travel ban on individuals from six Muslim countries was set to go into effect yesterday, US District Court Judge Derrick Watson, who presides in Honolulu, slapped down the policy, citing Trump’s comments on Muslims during the presidential campaign as part of his reason for blocking the ban. Watson was nominated...

    For the second time in just over two months, a judge has blocked President Trump's travel ban executive orders. Forget for a moment that in each case, the court has cleverly stayed away from the actual law and the Constitution and instead has focused on things Trump said as a candidate to determine some mysterious intent. Many have asked why he can't simply ignore the rulings as Zero did on occasion. And the answer is very clear: Trump's hold on the Presidency is tenuous. He is in a race (which, so far, he is winning) to improve the economy and...

But while you have politicians and pundits the world over screaming that we need to resettle more Middle Eastern refugees in America, they never talk about the ridiculous cost of shipping refugees half way around the world to resettle them. An analysis from the Center for Immigration Studies has shown that resettling a single Middle Eastern refugee in the United States costs taxpayers approximately $64,370 for five years — that is a whopping 12 times more than what it would cost to...

    “It is not compassionate, but reckless, to allow uncontrolled entry from places where proper vetting cannot occur. Those given the high honor of admission to the United States should support this country and love its people and its values,” President Trump said in his speech to a joint session of Congress on Tuesday. “That is why my administration has been working on improved vetting procedures, and we will shortly take new steps to keep our nation safe — and to keep out those who would do us harm,” the president promised. President Trump is expected to reveal those new steps...

    Don’t call it a ban. Call it common sense immigration reform. Because that is exactly what it is. We have the statistics. We know what works. All we need to do is start putting America first. There are more Iraqis living in the United States than there are in some major cities in Iraq. 156,000 Iraqi refugees have entered this country in just the last decade. 30,000 of those have ended up in California. In Obama’s first year in office, the United States resettled three-quarters of Iraqi refugees. 71% of Iraqi refugees are receiving cash assistance. 82% are on Medicaid...

The report, which was viewed by The Wall Street Journal and Associated Press, determined that the "country of citizenship is unlikely to be a reliable indicator of potential terrorist activity." [ ] The intelligence report found that in the past six years, foreign-born individuals who were “inspired” to strike in the U.S. came from 26 different countries.

    It seems evident that there is a problem, until last couple years it was unknown or at least unreported. There is an apparent disdain within Islam for women. This disdain is not only seen in the way they treat women as property to be bought and sold, or even the sex slave passages in the Quran.The biggest indication of this comes from the fact that Islamic men are prone to rap. This is seen in almost every place that the Islamic asylum seeker goes. Further, it should be pointed out that this holds true for every point of origin.Whether he...
