William Barr Prioritized Illegal Immigration Crackdown in 1990s–Similar to Sessions

President Donald Trump said former Attorney General William Barr was his “first choice since day one” to replace Jeff Sessions as his new attorney general, both men favoring pro-enforcement policies regarding immigration. Barr served as attorney general for the late President George H.W. Bush’s administration between 1991 and 1993, bringing a hard-on-crime touch to the immigration issue and implementing a series of reforms to reduce illegal immigration to the United States. At this time, border and immigration enforcement was managed by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), a faction of the Department…

Democrats Offer a Mere $1.6B for ‘Border Security,’ Not Wall Funding

Democrats are looking to recreate a deal made earlier this year in an omnibus spending bill that President Trump signed, now saying they will budget $1.6 billion  for border security measures that do not actually fund the building of a border wall. Trump started the year-end border wall funding negotiations by asking for only a fifth of the funds he needs to build the border wall he promised to his supporters. Since that first offer, Democrats are now reducing the funding they will accept to $1.6 billion, with the catch…

Trade Trucers Push President Trump to Back Off on China Tariffs

Talk of a “trade truce” is once again threatening to disrupt U.S. attempts to rein in China’s predatory economic practices. The United States and China are “exploring” a trade deal in which the Trump administration would hold off on imposing new tariffs or raising existing ones in exchange for “new talks,” officials from both governments told the Wall Street Journal. The Trump administration is divided into rival camps when it comes to China. The Trucers include Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, many Treasury staffers, and National Economic Council director Larry Kudlow.  They…

Report: Friction Between Mueller, Manafort Teams Led to Plea Deal Collapse

Paul Manafort’s lawyers kept a joint defense agreement with President Trump’s lawyers even after they accepted a plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller, which kept Trump’s team informed of the investigation and led to the plea deal’s collapse on Monday, according to a report. One of Trump’s lawyers, Rudy Giuliani, confirmed to the New York Times on Tuesday that Manafort’s lawyers had repeatedly briefed Trump’s lawyers on Trump’s former campaign chairman’s discussions with federal investigators. The arrangement was not illegal, but “highly unusual” and “inflamed tensions” between Manafort’s lawyers…

Researchers say foreign-born women with children in the U.S. are taking “extreme caution” before enrolling on food stamps due to a new plan by the Trump administration that is expected…

Fewer than 20 Miles of Border Have Been Reinforced with Razor Wire as Caravan Heads to U.S.

Less than 20 miles of the nearly 2,000-mile United States-Mexico border has been reinforced with razor wire as a caravan of 7,000 to 10,000 Central Americans heads to the U.S. As Breitbart News has reported, tensions have risen just over the southern border in Tijuana, Mexico where about 2,000 migrants with the caravan are staying and where locals are protesting their arrival into the city. President Trump is touting that the border is being secured ahead of the caravan’s arrival — though record levels of illegal border-crossers attempt to cross…

Trump Trolls Adam Schiff with New Nickname: ‘Little Adam Schitt’

President Donald Trump mocked Rep. Adam Schiff, the California Democrat who is expected to become chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, in a tweet on Sunday, calling him “little Adam Schitt.” “So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!” Trump tweeted around 1 p.m. So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that…

Klukowski: DOJ Should Appeal Court’s Reinstating CNN Acosta’s Credentials

A federal judge ordered the Trump administration in Washington, DC, on Friday to restore the White House press credentials of CNN’s Jim Acosta. But the appellate precedent underlying that order is wrong, so the Justice Department should continue appealing it all the way to the Supreme Court, where the case should be dismissed under the political-question doctrine. Judge Timothy Kelly, a Trump appointee to the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, held that stripping Acosta of his press credentials violated due process rights under the Fifth Amendment and…

Billionaire Koch Brothers Agenda Prioritized with Prison Reform While Trump’s Immigration Plans Stall

The GOP megadonor billionaire Koch brothers are set to seal another policy victory with President Trump’s announcement that he will sign a prison reform bill that is opposed by his base of supporters, conservatives, and law enforcement officials. Since the beginning of the year, the Koch brothers — avid opponents of Trump’s “America First” agenda on trade, immigration, and foreign policy — have lobbied the Republican-controlled Congress to support their agenda of tax reform, prison reform, and amnesty for illegal aliens. While the GOP tax cuts have been implemented for almost…
