South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy has introduced an immigration bill to defund President Obama’s executive amnesty and expedite the removal of criminal aliens from U.S. soil.
Named after Michael Davis, Jr., a sheriff’s deputy in California who was killed in the line of duty last year by an illegal immigrant, Gowdy’s bill would also provide a work-around for state and local governments to reinforce federal immigration laws while also implementing an annual review of the executive branch’s use of prosecutorial discretion in immigration cases.
“If we are serious about finding a long term solution to our immigration system, we must address interior enforcement,” Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the Immigration and Border Security Subcommittee, said in a statement announcing the measure.
“This bill, which is one part of the Committee’s step-by-step process to address our broken immigration system, will ensure we do not repeat the mistakes of the past and help us earn back the trust of the American public,” he added.
Jihadi John’s former university was a ‘hotbed of radicalism’ where students ‘celebrated 9/11′, it has been claimed.
A former student has lifted the lid on his time at the University of Westminster – as a talk by a Muslim extremist has been postponed due to ‘security concerns’.
Haitham al-Haddad was set to speak tonight, but the event will not go ahead as planned after it was revealed ‘Jihadi John’ studied computer programming at the university.
Today, the terrorist was named as a university graduate from London who was able to flee to Syria despite being on an MI5 terror watch list.
(CNSNews.com) – When asked to do so at a Thursday press briefing, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson failed to cite any law that authorized President Barack Obama to give Social Security Numbers to illegal aliens.
CNSNews.com asked Johnson: “A federal court in Texas v. United States has said giving an illegal alien a Social Security Number is not an act of prosecutorial discretion. What specific law gives the president the authority to give a Social Security Number to a foreign national in the country illegally?”
Rather than answer the question, Johnson instead noted that the administration has appealed the court’s injunction against the administration’s unilateral action on immigration.
He said: “Well, that’s a case that’s on appeal right now. We disagree with the district court’s decision but that’s what appellate courts are for. We’ve appealed the decision. We’re asking for a stay of the injunction. We went to the district judge first and the matter will be resolved in a few days. So that’s in litigation. I believe that the injunction will be reversed in a matter of time.”
Obama’s Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents Program (DAPA) would grant work permits and Social Security Numbers to as many as five million illegal aliens.
KABUL, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) — A total of 14 militants have been killed in violent incidents of conflict and bomb blast in the east and north of the militancy-plagued Afghanistan on Friday, officials said.
In the latest incident, two Taliban militants were killed and two others injured as their explosive device exploded prematurely in the eastern Paktika province, spokesman for the provincial government, Nabiullah Pirkhil, said.
“A group of Taliban rebels were planning to target security forces in Sharmal khil area of Barmal district, Paktika province on Friday morning, but the device exploded prematurely killing two militants on the spot and injuring two others,” Pirkhil said in a statement sent to media outlets.
A movement is underway to stage an informal protest when former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush hits the CPAC stage Friday.
William Temple, a member of the Golden Isle Tea Party, told The Washington Times that the party doesn’t need another Bush in office, and said that the party should listen to the grass-roots activists that helped fuel their gains in the 2014 election.
“A lot of peoples were not going to come here because they heard Jeb Bush was speaking,” Mr. Temple said before laying out his plan at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
“We are going to get up en masse, and we are going to walk out on him,” the 64-year-old said. “We are not going to interrupt anyone’s speech, but we are all going to exercise our right to [use] the bathroom at the same time.”
This week, prosecutors in New York introduced eight documents recovered in Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan as evidence in the trial of a terrorism suspect. The U.S. government accuses Abid Naseer of taking part in al Qaeda’s scheme to attack targets in Europe and New York City. And prosecutors say the documents are essential for understanding the scope of al Qaeda’s plotting.
More than 1 million documents and files were captured by the Navy Seals who raided bin Laden’s safe house in Abbottabad, Pakistan in May 2011. One year later, in May 2012, the Obama administration released just 17 of them.
While there is some overlap between the files introduced as evidence in Brooklyn and those that were previously made public in 2012, much of what is in the trial exhibits had never been made public before.
. . . Case in point: Students at UC Berkeley this week held a protest against a professor who recently told his class the Black Lives Matter movement “needed to stop scapegoating the cops” and shared statistics to argue black-on-black crime is the real harm facing the black community.
Saying he was inspired by the campus Black Lives Matter conversation, Professor Steven Segal made his argument not only as part of a lecture to his graduate-level social work class, but also delivered some of his comments via a rap he wrote.
The professor at UC Berkeley – the birthplace of the free speech movement – has since been accused of racism and of creating a “toxic climate for people of color in the classroom,” and a #BlackLivesMatter sit-in demonstration against the longtime scholar was held Tuesday.
Details have emerged of footage filmed by Paris gunman Amedy Coulibaly during a bloody rampage inside a Jewish supermarket, a French website says.
He delivers an anti-Semitic rant and shouts “Stand up or I’ll kill you” at hostages, according to a transcript obtained by Le Nouvel Observateur. […]
Investigators are examining seven minutes 45 seconds of footage apparently filmed by Coulibaly on a GoPro camera worn during the siege, according to reports.
It shows him shouting “Nobody move”, before grabbing hold of a customer, asking his name, and then shooting him dead.
He asks another man what origin he is. And when the hostage replies “Jewish”, he kills him too.
“So you know why I am here then. Allahu Akbar,” he shouts, according to Le Nouvel Observateur’s report. He is also heard making anti-Semitic remarks when one woman tries to tell him that his hostages have done nothing wrong.
A separate video appeared to show Coulibaly explaining his motivation
A separate video that emerged after he was shot dead by police apparently showed him pledging his allegiance to the Islamic State militant group, and claiming the attacks were “retribution”.
Let’s ask the “homos” and “punk faggots” what they think…
ALLEN: “Is Al Sharpton too close to this White House?”
HOLDER: “I don’t think so. I think that, you know, the president has a number of people who he listens to, who he interacts with. Reverend Sharpton is a person who has interacted with people within the administration, including myself, but we also hear from people who have fundamentally different views than Al Sharpton has. It’s always good to hear from a multiplicity of people, to hear views that you agree with. You have people who you don’t agree with, and I think this president’s done a really good job in ways that are oftentimes not publicized when he meets with historians for, you know, these dinners and lunches that he has; when he has meetings that are, again, not as publicized with the thought leaders. So, I think that he gets a lot of input from a variety of sources and does so appropriately.”
Hussein bin Mahmoud, a jurist of Sharia law for the Islamic State, said in an article published on February 17 and appearing in various jihadi websites that all Christian churches in Cairo must be demolished.
Titled the “Ruling on Egypt’s Christians,” the article, written like a fatwa, asserts that
“The ruling concerning the churches that are in Cairo is that they be destroyed, according to the consensus of the righteous forefathers [Salaf], because they are new under Islam, and Cairo is a new city whose original inhabitants were Muslim; there were no churches in it previously.
As for churches in Upper Egypt, which may have been in existence before the Islamic conquest of Egypt, these may remain but may never be renovated or fixed.”
The Islamic state cleric cited medieval jurist Ibn Taymiyya (d. 1328), some of whose fatwas deal with Islam’s views on churches which are described as “worse than bars and brothels.”
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) declared “there should be no amnesty” on Thursday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
When asked what he believes should be done with illegal immigrants already in the country, he stated “there should be no amnesty. You should secure the border, not just for immigration reasons, but why would you put a fence around three sides of your home and leave the back door open? That’s what we have when we guard our ports, we guard our airports, we don’t guard our borders…beyond that you’ve got to enforce the law. We put the onus on employers to give them an E-Verify type system where they have access to enforce the law.”
Regarding DHS funding and funding for the president’s executive action on immigration, he said “you have got to tie the two together, and instead of playing on defense you have got to play on offense and put the pressure back on the president and his allies.”
