  • Trump administration shuts down Central American minor protection program

    The Trump administration on Wednesday shut down yet another Obama-era program — this one created to give Central American minors fleeing poverty and gang violence in their homeland temporary legal status in the United States. The “CAM parole” program was established in 2014 in response to a surprise spike in the number of unaccompanied minors and families entering the country from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. The program allowed minors who did not make the cut for “refugee status” to enter the U.S. on a two-year, renewable parole if they had a parent already legally in the country.
  • Canada sees 'unsustainable' spike in asylum seekers at U.S. border

    The number of asylum seekers who illegally crossed the U.S. border into Canada more than tripled last month, according to Canadian government data released on Thursday, as migrants worried about the U.S. administration's immigration crackdown head north. More than 3,100 people walked across the border illegally in July to file refugee claims and were arrested, up from 884 in June, the federal government said. Ninety-six percent of them went to Quebec, where an influx of asylum seekers, primarily Haitians, is sparking a backlash from opposition politicians and anti-immigrant groups in the primarily French-speaking province. The Montreal suburb of Boucherville has...
  • Iran could quit nuclear deal in 'hours' if new U.S. sanctions imposed: Rouhani

    Iran could abandon its nuclear agreement with world powers “within hours” if the United States imposes any more new sanctions, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday. “If America wants to go back to the experience (of imposing sanctions), Iran would certainly return in a short time — not a week or a month, but within hours — to conditions more advanced than before the start of negotiations,” Rouhani told a session of parliament broadcast live on state television. Iran says new U.S. sanctions breach the agreement it reached in 2015 with the United States, Russia, China and three European...

    SAN FRANCISCO — The much-publicized saga of Highland Hospital nurse Maria Sanchez and her husband Eusebio, who for the last 15 years had sought to obtain green cards and remain in the U.S. legally, ended with hugs and tears Wednesday night before the undocumented couple boarded a flight bound for their native Mexico. They had booked their flight Tuesday after receiving word that a final attempt to delay their deportation had been denied by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. The couple is now prohibited from returning to the U.S. for a decade, when they can begin the process all over...

    They’re going to have to start laying some people off, and for much of Washington, DC, that’s a completely foreign concept. Agencies are “pretty certain” they will need to institute reductions in force as they aim to satisfy an executive order from President Trump and ensuing guidance from the Office of Management and Budget, said Leslie Pollack, deputy associate director of OPM’s HR Strategy and Evaluation Solutions, on WJLA’s “Government Matters” program. Those documents required executive branch agencies to reorganize themselves and, in the process, cut the size of their workforces. Pollack’s office, which provides human resources consulting to federal...

  • ACLU Warns Trump: Pardoning Arpaio Would Be ‘Presidential Endorsement of Racism’

    If President Trump pardons former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, it “would be an official presidential endorsement of racism,” the American Civil Liberties Union said on Monday. Arpaio, now 85 years old, is famous for his tough stand on illegal immigration. He was convicted two weeks ago of criminal contempt for violating a court order instructing him to stop detaining people suspected of being in the country illegally. Fox News interviewed Trump on Sunday at his club in Bedminster, N.J. “I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” Fox quoted the president as saying. “He has done a lot...

    Trump refused to give in to the false narrative of this weekend's events being promoted by fake news mainstream media. The leftist media and its parrot politicians from both parties have aligned themselves with the communist hammer and sickle-wearing violent extremist group ANTIFA. President Trump has now exposed the violent ALT-LEFT for what it is: anti-American violent thugs seeking to use racial issues and rare instances of police violence to undermine unity in our country. True, there were those on both sides of the statute debate who were present ready and willing to engage in violence. Trump acknowledged this fact....

    Independent Journal Review (IJR) collected a few unintentionally hilarious Twitter responses from journalists who reported being shaken by President Donald Trump’s aggressiveness in an extraordinary press conference Tuesday that was centered on questions about the weekend’s violence at a white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia.Vanity Fair reporter Gabriel Sherman was actually physically ill: “I am totally rattled by that presser. Chest tight, stomach queasy. Feel sick”: Perhaps he should have his testosterone checked. It seems seriously depleted. But then, he does write for Vanity Fair. Magazine editor David Lytle tweeted his empathy for Sherman: “I vomited on election night. Today, I bawled for 20 minutes....

    Remember all the recent caterwauling about President Donald Trump's policy towards North Korea in the mainstream media in general and at CNN in particular? Folks like the reliably ridiculous Chris Cillizza slammed a Trump tweet about "locked and loaded" as inflamatory because many people supposedly would not read the rest of the tweet which puts that term in context. Other usual CNN suspects such as Fareed Zakaria denounced Trump for supposedly mishandling the North Korea situation. Therefore it was quite surprising to see that the co-host of CNN's Newsroom, John Berman, appears to have given Trump credit for the fact that...
  • North Korea Says It Won't Fire Missiles At Guam After All

    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reviewed his military's plans to rain "an enveloping fire" around the U.S. territory of Guam — but opted not to fire missiles at this time, according to state media. Despite the stand-down, some Guamanians were alarmed after two radio stations aired an erroneous emergency alert Tuesday. Kim visited the Korean People's Army as the self-imposed mid-August deadline for a missile demonstration approached, the Korean Central News Agency reports. But after hearing the plan and considering it, Kim opted not to give the order to launch missiles," the report says.

    Well, maybe the Crazy Little Fat Guy in North Korea isn’t quite so crazy after all. – Shortly after Defense Secretary General James Mattis warned that the firing of North Korean missiles in the direction of any U.S. state or territory would be an act of war and treated by the U.S. with an overwhelming response, the Crazy Little Fat Guy appearsto have backed down. The Crazy Little Fat Guy stated that he has decided not to launch the threatened four nuclear-armed missiles at Guam, a U.S. territory, saying he would “wait a little longer.” Mr. Crazy went on to...

    North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has decided not to launch a threatened missile attack on Guam, Pyongyang’s state media reported on Tuesday, but warned that he could change his mind “if the Yankees persist in their extremely dangerous reckless actions.” The report, published early Tuesday, could help dial back tensions that had spiraled last week following an exchange of threats between North Korea and U.S. President Donald Trump. Mr. Trump warned Pyongyang last week that the U.S. military was “locked and loaded” and could engulf the North in “fire and fury,” while North Korea, through its state media, had...

    WASHINGTON — Before President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration policies took effect early this year, thousands of undocumented residents were given a break from being deported. Government immigration officials would hold off if the illegal immigrants were married to American citizens or longtime residents of the U.S., gainfully employed and had committed no crime other than being in the country illegally. It was, said immigration lawyer Heather Prendegast of Cleveland, the “government’s attempt to be nice.” The cordiality ended when Trump officials instructed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to get tough on illegal immigration, according to a study by the...

    In a matter of a days, tensions with North Korea appear to have calmed down considerably. Most of that is thanks to China making a series of positive moves and statements. This is shaping up to be a big win for the Trump administration. -- Less than a week ago, the world seemed to be on the edge of a nuclear confrontation or at least a bloody military conflict in East Asia. What a difference a few days make. After a weekend filled with a series of conciliatory statements from China, some of them downright surprising, the situation with North...
  • Possible Venezuelan Assassination Plot Against Rubio Uncovered

    MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Senator Marco Rubio may be the target of an assassination plot by a senior official within the Venezuelan government of Nicolas Maduro, according to a memo distributed by U.S. intelligence officials and obtained by CBS4 News. The memo refers to the information as “a potentially grave threat to Senator Rubio.” The unverified warning prompted federal officials to increase the security around the Florida Republican leading to the ongoing, round-the-clock protection for him and his family. “You have to take this as serious and credible given the information,” a law enforcement source who had been briefed on the...
