    “You only arrest for the purpose of dealing with a felony that’s committed, and I don’t count drunk driving as a felony.” That was former vice president Joe Biden last week, and the presidential contender announced a punishment for ICE agents who dare arrest illegals caught driving drunk. “You change the culture by saying you are going to get fired,” Biden explained. “You are fired if, in fact, you do that.” That fell afoul of former ICE boss Tom Homan, who explained that according to current statues, any crime by an illegal is grounds for deportation. If Biden doesn’t like...

    A drunken driving conviction could mean losing the right to buy and own firearms in Pennsylvania, the U.S. Court of Appeals has decided. The precedent-setting opinion handed down Friday hinges on the federal government’s definition of a “serious crime” — the level a crime must reach to trigger an individual being barred from buying firearms. Under federal law, a serious crime is one that can carry a state-prison sentence of two or more years. In the case of Raymond Holloway Jr. of Montgomery County, that came in the form of a DUI. Holloway tried in 2016 to buy a firearm...

    This is all you need to know about where the Dems stand today. They don't have a single thought or care about law-abiding, hard-working citizens of the United States, they know they have lost that the majority of that vote. They only cater to their base that is anti-American patriotism, anti-Christian, anti 2A, anti-white, anti-traditional family, etc. Whichever of these morons win the nomination, they will have to pivot on this stuff and hope no one brings it up. To bad for them Trump doesn't forget and he has an itchy Twitter finger to remind everyone. Sometimes President Trump doesn't...

    Former Acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan said Wednesday that Joe Biden has "lost his mind," calling out the former vice president for saying that the United States should not deport illegal immigrants over a drunk-driving arrest. Biden also threatened ICE with punishment if the agency were to deport illegal immigrants arrested for drunk driving, saying his administration would fire agents who arrest and deport illegal immigrants for such a crime. “They go off to school wondering whether their mom comes and picks them up, is she not going to be there because an ICE agent was...

    More than 100,000 illegal immigrants who requested a special Obama-era amnesty for adults who came to the U.S. as children have criminal histories, according to an alarming report released this month by the government. Offenses committed by the illegal aliens seeking protection, benefits and rights under the policy known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) include murder, rape, weapon and assault charges. DACA has shielded nearly 800,000 illegal aliens under the age of 31 from deportation and allowed them to obtain work permits and drivers licenses. Obama launched the outrageous measure through executive order in 2012 to help children...
