  • ICE chief rips ‘dangerous’ move by New York to make sharing illegal immigrant driver data a felony

    The original law went a step further than similar laws in other states by forbidding state Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) agencies from sharing data with immigration authorities like ICE and Customs and Border Protection (CBP). But the new amendment goes even further and makes it a class E felony for officials to share such information.

    New York State officials who provide information about illegal alien drivers to federal immigration enforcement agencies can now face felony charges.An amendment to the highly controversial ‘Green Light Law,’ which went into effect in December and cleared illegal aliens to apply for New York State driver’s licenses, was slipped into the state’s 2020 budget bill and signed by Gov. Andrew Cuomo in April, in the midst of the coronavirus crisis.It is now a Class E felony for state officials, such as law enforcement officers, to disclose DMV records with agencies such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) or Customs and Border Protection (CBP).“Border Patrol for example,...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) will travel to Washington, D.C., on Wednesday for a meeting with President Trump to discuss economic revival efforts. The governor said during a news conference on Tuesday that he hoped to discuss how infrastructure projects could be leveraged to kickstart the economy, which has cratered due to the coronavirus pandemic. "You want to restart the economy, you want to reopen the economy, let’s do something creative, let’s do it fast, let’s put Americans back to work, and let’s make America better," Cuomo said. "It is common sense." "You have an infrastructure that’s crumbling, you...

    (CNN)New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's office deflected questions about a report from The Associated Press that the state sent more than 4,500 patients recovering from coronavirus to nursing homes by saying they followed guidance from federal agencies. "I just want to reiterate once again that the policy that the Department of Health put out was in line directly with the March 13 directive put out by (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) and (Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services) that read, and I quote, 'Nursing homes should admit any individuals from hospitals where Covid is present,'" said Secretary to the...
  • Cuomo STILL refuses to give New Yorkers an end date to lockdown despite new hospitalizations being HALF what they were before shutdown and instead lectures people about going out without masks

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday refused again to give an end date to New York City's lockdown despite the number of new hospitalizations lowering to 230 - less than half what they were the day the city shut down. Cuomo's requirements are that the city have 30% of its hospital and ICU beds free and that there are enough contact tracers - 2,250. The city will only say that it has hired 'well over 1,000' contact tracers. As of Monday, 29 percent of hospital beds were free and 29 percent of ICU beds were free.

    While police in New York have been enforcing social distancing and stay-at-home orders in the last few weeks of the coronavirus pandemic, the state effectively worked to “criminalize” part of their jobs. A U.S. Attorney in New York accused Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo of “legislating obstruction” with a law that bans police from sharing Department of Motor Vehicles information with federal immigration agencies. New York’s Green Light Law was passed last year allowing a driver’s license to anyone without legal immigration status, and now the approved 2020 budget has added an eyebrow-raising amendment. While the Green Light Law prohibited the...
  • Andrew Cuomo managed to kill grandma — and New York’s economy with it too

    So Gov. Cuomo killed grandma and cratered New York’s economy. But he looked good doing it. Too harsh? Well, report cards are snapshots, and the pandemic is an evolving event. Numbers are shifting, and surely things will look different down the road. But if New York had dodged the coronavirus bullet, this governor surely would be taking full credit. So because in fact it has been hit squarely between the eyes, it seems reasonable to hand him the blame. It was just six weeks or so ago when folks were touting the hugely telegenic Cuomo for vice president, maybe even...

    LA will keep its stay-at-home orders in place through to August as infections and deaths continue to rise and the county's health director warned a 'dramatic change' is needed before lockdown rules can be relaxed. LA County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer announced during a Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday that the stay-at-home orders will 'with all certainty' be extended for the next three months. Ferrer said the shocking timeline will only change if LA sees a 'dramatic change to the virus and tools at hand'. The county continues to see a spike in cases and deaths, with another 566...

    Governor Newsom is behind in the Most Loathsome Governor in America race, largely because he hasn't managed to kill as many nursing home residents as rivals like Cuomo and Murphy. But here he is trying to take first responders hostage. California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) told CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday that the federal government has a "moral obligation" to provide funding for states in its next coronavirus relief bill, noting that police officers, health care workers and firefighters will be the first ones laid off as a result of massive budget deficits.

    Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) said federal lawmakers have a “moral” and “ethical” obligation to provide emergency relief to states amid the coronavirus pandemic. Partial transcript as follows: TAPPER: So, the position of the White House seems to be that any money for states would be premature. What’s your response, sir? NEWSOM: Well, it’s not charity. I mean, a year ago, Jake, we were running a $21.5 billion surplus. And here we are at $54.3 billion budget deficit that is directly COVID- induced. We have been managing our budget effectively, efficiently, paying down our...

    There is no shortage of examples nationwide that confirm illegal immigrant sanctuary policies endanger communities and this month we have a case that should serve as the poster child. Not surprisingly, it comes out of California but even for a notorious sanctuary state it seems excessive. An illegal alien with a lengthy criminal history that includes convictions for felony sex with a minor and battery was released by San Francisco authorities six times despite his violent history that also includes a domestic violence arrest. The 25-year-old Honduran man, Kristian Jonas Gamez-Trejo, has long appeared on Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE)...

    If, as Rush Limbaugh has opined, there is no way the Democrat Party will hoist Joe Biden over the finish line, then what do the Democrats have up their sleeve to stay in power? After all, "[t]he Democrats have no enthusiasm. There's no fire in their bellies. They're grumbling even as they're defending Biden. ...[T]hey really couldn't give a damn about Joe Biden." Enter Gavin Newsom. The California governor certainly has the credentials. From the beginning of his term, he blatantly ignored constitutional and immigration law. He has proven that he is a radical illegal immigration advocate, thus adhering to...

They’re supposed to arrive today, the first shipment of those. I’m looking forward to that. But what we’re doing is we’re going it alone, as the White House has...

    Newly elected Whittier Councilwoman Jessica Martinez’s decision to take part in a lawsuit filed by a conservative group to block $75 million Gov. Gavin Newsom authorized in financial aid for undocumented immigrants is garnering heat. Opponents have threatened a recall — although they can’t even start the process until July. They also demonstrated outside her home on Saturday and sent in 51 emails criticizing her, in lieu of public comment, to Tuesday’s City Council meeting. “You have long lines of people in her district lining up at schools for the free lunches,” said Miguel Garcia, founder and president-elect of Whittier...

    California became the first state in the nation to borrow federal funds to help its beleaguered unemployment system, state officials said Tuesday. “This has been an unprecedented time for unemployed workers across our state. As of April 30, California borrowed $348 million from the federal government to ensure Unemployment Insurance (UI) benefit payments are made to eligible unemployed workers,” the Employment Development Department said in a statement to The Bee. “We are using every tool at our disposal to ensure people have the resources they need during this difficult time, and that funding is available to continue to meet the...

    TIJUANA/CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico - The world’s busiest land border has fallen quiet as restrictions to contain the coronavirus prevent millions of Mexicans from making daily trips north, including many who work in U.S. businesses. At least 4 million Mexicans residing in cities along the 1,954-mile (3,144-km) border have been hit hard by the restrictions on non-essential travel. The measures effectively invalidate visas allowing short crossings into U.S. cities to visit family, get medical care or shop. While such B1/B2 “border crossing cards” are officially recreational, Reuters spoke to nearly two dozen residents of Tijuana, Nogales and Ciudad Juarez who use...

    Philadelphia had emerged as one of the largest thorns in the Trump administration’s side. It wore its sanctuary reputation like a badge of honor, and its leaders, including Kenney and District Attorney Larry Krasner, continued to find ways to outmaneuver ICE’s enforcement efforts. Like their sanctuary laws are not enough now they are ready to open supervised drug injection sites. The nation’s first supervised drug injection site will open next week in South Philadelphia, the site’s operators said Tuesday within hours of a federal judge’s entering a final ruling that the proposed facility would not violate federal law. The project...
