    On Monday the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Office of General Counsel (OGC) responded to the baseless legal opinion issued by the Government Accountability Office on Friday. In a detailed, eight-page letter, OGC shows not only that the GAO’s legal reasoning and treatment of the evidence are deeply flawed, but also how the timing and authorship of the opinion both reveal it to be a brazenly partisan product issued by supposed nonpartisan agency. Key Points of the Letter: From its origins to its problematic conclusions, indications of the report’s partisan ends are impossible for any reasonable observer to ignore. Not...

    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.”...

    The Trump administration announced plans Monday to speed up deportations for illegal immigrants in the interior, applying the same standards that have been at play at the border to now apply to the country as a whole. With more illegal immigrants managing to sneak into the interior amid the border surge, the new powers are necessary to be able to oust them from the communities where they end up, acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said in a notice published online officially announcing the new policy. The aggressive move is already drawing threats of lawsuits from the American Civil Liberties...

    On Friday, we reported on a leak to the media regarding President Donald Trump’s recent pledge that Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids were set to begin Sunday, targeting illegal aliens who have been ordered out of the country by immigration judges. We noted that though the president tweeted about the raids, details were still sketchy since he never revealed anything beyond the fact that they were going to happen — at some point. But as happens so often with this president, someone from the #NeverTrump bureaucracy leaked those details to the media, which, of course, quickly reported them because as...
