  • Arizona AG Brnovich issues legal opinion declaring border crisis 'invasion' under Constitution

    Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich on Monday issued a legal opinion that determines that the ongoing crisis at the southern border is an "invasion" under the Constitution – a move he says gives the state the power to take additional measures to defend itself. In the opinion, Brnovich says that the definition of "invasion" contained under the U.S. Constitution is not limited to hostile foreign states, and can include "hostile non-state actors." "The violence and lawlessness at the border caused by transnational cartels and gangs satisfies the definition of an ‘invasion’ under the U.S. Constitution, and Arizona therefore has the...

    A former U.S. Army Reserve lieutenant colonel and intelligence official who gained fame for claims about mishandled intelligence before the September 11 attacks, says former US Attorney General Bill Barr told him to stop his investigation into the 2020 election. Tony Shaffer says while investigating the 2020 election, then-Attorney General Bill Bar personally called and told him to turn over the case to the FBI. Shaffer’s comments came on Friday during the One American Podcast with Chase Geiser. “When was the last time you had Bill Barr, the Attorney General, calling a private citizen saying you need to stop.

    Just catching up to a crazy story from earlier in the week that’s pretty important not to skip over, giving all that has been going on with the National Guard. Now, there were a lot of questions about the need of having such a massive buildup of 25,000 troops in Washington, D.C to protect the Capitol. But apparently that wasn’t all that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wanted, according to Ken Cuccinelli, the former Acting Deputy Homeland Security Secretary. According to Cuccinelli, not only did Pelosi want all those troops, “a division,” to protect the Capitol, but she also wanted...

    On Tuesday’s broadcast of CNN’s “Cuomo Primetime,” acting Deputy DHS Secretary Ken Cuccinelli said that President Donald Trump’s statement on Thursday about the riot at the U.S. Capitol is “what we wanted to hear on Wednesday,” the day that the riot took place, but that the president’s message about the riot on Thursday was one that came “late.” Cuccinelli said, “[W]hat he said on Thursday is what we wanted to hear on Wednesday, right? And it was late.”

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)and other Democrats have gone on a tirade over apparent federal agents sweeping alleged rioters away in unmarked vehicles. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) has joined the bandwagon of sanctimonious anger over the criminal suspects being apprehended in an unconventional way, highlighting the suspicion by patriotic Americans nationwide the left is not interested in quelling any civil unrest unless it happens to directly affect them. Earlier we reported that Nancy Pelosi was calling the agents “Stormtroopers” for President Trump. Now Chuck Schumer has this to say about the situation, using the word abomination for the...

    A federal district judge in D.C. ruled on Sunday that Ken Cuccinelli’s placement as the acting top official at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) violated the Federal Vacancies Reform Act. Why it matters: Policies that were put in place under Cuccinelli are now void, including a directive that gave asylum-seekers less time to consult with legal counsel before their initial "credible fear" interview with a USCIS officer. Details: After the resignation of Senate-confirmed USCIS director Lee Cissna, deputy director Mark Koumans automatically assumed the role of acting director because he was designated as the "first assistant" under the Federal...

    Acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Ken Cuccinelli has apparently deleted a tweet about the suspect charged with a stabbing attack at a Hanukkah celebration in New York over the weekend, saying "American values did not take hold" in the man's family although he is a U.S. citizen. “The attacker is the U.S. Citizen son of an illegal alien who got amnesty under the 1986 amnesty law for illegal immigrants. Apparently, American values did not take hold among this entire family, at least this one violent, and apparently bigoted, son,” Cuccinelli said in a since-deleted tweet, referencing...

    Acting Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli was publicly harassed Wednesday by Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley when the two ran into each other at a bar in Washington, D.C. They crossed paths at an Irish pub, The Dubliner, where they were both attending an event for graduates of Gonzaga College High School. Rather than being able to enjoy his Guinness, however, Cuccinelli was subject to a “passion-laced and shame-invoking tirade” by O’Malley over the Trump administration’s immigration policies.

    Acting Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Ken Cuccinelli fired back at former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley on Thursday after the Democrat forced Cuccinelli to leave an event Thanksgiving eve, with Cuccinelli claiming O'Malley's "sad" and "shocking" outburst was so vitriolic his neck veins were "bulging." Cuccinelli, in a lengthy statement to Fox News, recalled Wednesday night’s incident, which took place at the Dubliner—an Irish pub on Capitol Hill where he and O’Malley were attending an event with fellow graduates of Gonzaga College High School before O’Malley’s “shame-invoking tirade” forced Cuccinelli to leave.

    Ken Cuccinelli, acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, left a popular D.C. pub on Wednesday evening after Martin O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland (D), raised his voice and berated him regarding the Trump administration’s immigration policies. Both Cuccinelli and O’Malley appeared at the Dubliner in the nation’s capital, a choice pub for Gonzaga High School graduates. “Both men attended the school, graduating five years apart in the 1980s,” the Washington Post notes. According to one witness, Siobhan Houton Arnold, Cuccinelli walked into the bar, and O’Malley proceeded to berate him regarding the Trump administration’s immigration policies,...

    Twelve Veterans from nine different countries were granted American citizenship at a ceremony hosted by "Fox & Friends" on Monday, with Trump administration official Ken Cuccinelli administering the naturalization oath live on air. Cuccinelli, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, praised the candidates for serving in the armed forces before they were granted citizenship and said their desire to live as Americans represents a sacred honor, reserved for those who exhibit true loyalty and devotion to the United States. "Many of us take for granted what just happened here today because we were blessed to be born in this...

    Nothing changes in Washington, D.C. We get the same tired results like increased spending and bloated bureaucratic agencies making decisions that carry the weight of law with no constitutional authority to enforce. The murky swamp is oversaturated with federal government interference in our daily lives that are anathema to the self-rule vision of the founding fathers.  President Trump’s administration began unlike any other new administration in modern times. The resistance was appalling—not just from Democrats but also career bureaucrats who are used to running a shadow government like the Intelligence agencies, the FBI, and Bureau of Land Management. The Intel...

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Acting Director Ken Cuccinelli is being seen as a likely replacement for outgoing Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan, sources tell Fox News -- a move that would be welcomed by immigration hardliners. President Trump on Friday announced that McAleenan would be leaving the job to spend more time with his family, and added that the new acting secretary would be announced next week. The announcement immediately led to speculation as to who would step into the vital cabinet position -- one that is a central post for the nation's immigration policy....

    Allies to President Trump are furious with acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan for how they say he threw his boss and department officials under the bus in a recent interview. “At a time when President Trump is facing the most partisan attacks of his administration, one of his own Cabinet-level officials aired his grievances with the president in the court of public opinion,” said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council. “Regardless of your readers' political leanings: Left, right, or in the middle, the airing of grievances by a Cabinet-level official must be considered dishonest and unforgivable.”...

    Ken Cuccinelli, the acting Director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services office, went toe-to-toe with CNN host Alisyn Camerota on Friday, pushing back against the network's liberal talking points. The topic was the Trump administration's revision of the so-called Flores Agreement, which required border-crossing families with children to be released from custody after 20 days. Under the new rule, such families can be detained until their immigration status is resolved. Under the old rule, people with unfounded asylum claims would flood the border, knowing they'd soon be released, never to be seen again. The new rule will discourage such fraudulent...

    President Trump will tighten rules for a federal parole program that has allowed thousands of foreign nationals, who would otherwise be deemed inadmissible to the United States, to take jobs in the U.S. An order issued this week by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) gives guidance to federal adjudicators to only consider providing foreign nationals who are paroled into the country with work permits after “all relevant factors” are considered “on a case-by-case basis.” “USCIS will only consider employment authorization for parolees when, based on the facts and circumstances of each individual case, USCIS finds that a...

    "Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge," Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said Tuesday, twisting Emma Lazarus' famous words on a bronze plaque at the Statue of Liberty. Cuccinelli was speaking to NPR's Rachel Martin about a new regulation he announced Monday that targets legal immigration. The rule denies green cards and visas to immigrants if they use — or are deemed likely to need — federal, state and local government benefits including food stamps, housing vouchers and...

    Senior Trump administration official Ken Cuccinelli said Monday he doesn't think President Trump sent the wrong message by giving his first prison commutation to a man who was one of the nation's largest employers of illegal immigrants. The acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, a hardliner on immigration policy, said the Trump administration's message is one of toughness, not leniency, after raids this month of seven food processing plants in Mississippi resulted in 680 arrests. "I don't think so," Cuccinelli said, regarding whether the 2017 release of Sholom Rubashkin sent the wrong message. The former Iowa meatpacking executive...

    President Trump's threatened deportation raids are "absolutely going to happen," says senior Department of Homeland Security official Ken Cuccinelli. "There are approximately 1 million in this people with deportation orders," the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services told reporters on the White House driveway. "Of course, that isn't what ICE will go after in this, but that's the pool of people that have been all the way through the process."
