Breaking: It’s Confirmed! Look Who Was Just Stripped Of Citizenship! Trump DID It Again!

President Donald Trump’s main goal is to make America great again and keep it safe as much as possible.

His immigration policies seem to work really well.

And soon, our country will be crime-free and we will be able to walk freely down the streets with no fear of being killed by illegal aliens.

A former naturalized U.S. citizen, who was convicted in Israel for participating in a terrorist bombing, was ordered deported on Thursday, following an extensive investigation by U.S. Immigration and Custom Enforcement.’s Homeland Security Investigations. Rasmieh Yousef Odeh, 70, lost her United States citizenship, and will be deported from the United States for having obtained her United States citizenship unlawfully.

“Today’s court action clears the way for this defendant’s removal from the United States and should serve as an unequivocal message that the U.S. will never be a haven for those seeking to distance themselves from their past atrocities,” said Steve Francis, HSI Detroit special agent in charge.

According to our source, Conservative Post, Odeh, a Chicago-area resident, was sentenced by United States District Judge Gershwin A. Drain. During the sentence hearing, Judge Drain indicated that he would sign an order, revoking Odeh’s United States citizenship, so that she will no longer have legal status in the United States and will be deported to Jordan.

Judge Drain said that Odeh falsified her U.S. citizenship documents and this sentence should be a deterrent to others thinking of lying to gain citizenship in the United States.

“In 1969, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine conducted two bombings in Jerusalem, Israel. One was at a Supersol supermarket, in which two individuals were killed and many more wounded. The second bombing was at the British Consulate. Defendant Odeh was arrested and charged with participation in the bombings, and in 1970 was convicted.

She was sentenced to life imprisonment, but was released in 1979 after ten years’ imprisonment, as part of a prisoner exchange. In numerous television and video interviews throughout the years, other admitted participants in the bombings named Odeh as the person who chose the supermarket as a target, scouted the location and placed the bomb,” Acting U.S. Attorney Lemisch stated.

Trump’s attacks on humanitarian immigration just became a full-blown war

On Monday, the Trump administration announced that it was stripping approximately 260,500 Salvadoran immigrants — who’ve been in the US for at least 17 years, since a 2001 earthquake — of temporary legal status as of July 2019.

It’s the latest, and most significant, blow in the administration’s fight against Temporary Protected Status, an immigration program that lets the government allow immigrants to stay in the US and work legally after their home countries are struck by natural disasters or war.

El Salvador is the fourth country for which the Trump administration has announced an end to TPS protections over its first year. In total, the administration has set up more than 320,000 immigrants to lose their legal status over the course of late 2018 and 2019 (and possibly as many as 375,000, depending on what it decides to do with 57,000 Honduran immigrants this spring).

The overwhelming majority of those immigrants have deep roots in the US. And Salvadorans might have the deepest roots of all: Approximately 192,700 US-born children have at least one parent who’s on track to lose legal status due to the administration’s Monday announcement.

The Trump administration argues that the TPS program was never intended to allow immigrants to stay for 17 years, and that it needs to end temporary status to provide a “permanent solution.” But it’s unclear, at best, that the Trump administration will be interested in pushing Congress to legalize hundreds of thousands of Central American (and Haitian) immigrants. Furthermore, the administration is telling Salvadoran immigrants that they have 18 months to make other arrangements to stay in the US or pack their bags.

After two decades in the US, hundreds of thousands of families will now have to decide whether to return to one of the most violent countries on earth — or remain in the US as unauthorized immigrants and try to slink into the shadows.

No president wanted to end humanitarian immigration. Then came Donald Trump.

Temporary Protected Status serves as a form of humanitarian relief, offered to nationals of countries struggling with the aftermath of war, natural disasters, or other humanitarian crises where conditions on the ground make it difficult for people to return safely. Ten countries — El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nepal, Nicaragua, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, Syria, and Yemen — are currently in the program, which is overseen by the Department of Homeland Security and is granted in six- to 18-month intervals that can be renewed as long as DHS deems a designation necessary.

El Salvador was on the TPS list in the 1990s during its long and bloody civil war, but was removed in 1992 (though a related program, Deferred Enforced Departure, protected Salvadorans from getting deported through 1995). In 2001, though, after an earthquake struck El Salvador, the government allowed Salvadorans in the US to apply for TPS again. In the intervening 17 years, it’s renewed protections 10 times.

To enter the program, nationals of a designated country must clear a number of conditions: They must maintain a relatively clean criminal record and pass a background check, they must pay a $495 processing fee when they first apply for the program and every time their status is renewed, and they must reside in the United States at the time of their country’s designation. This usually means that TPS beneficiaries are undocumented immigrants who were already in the US, those who overstayed a visa, or those who hold some other form of temporary immigration status.

TPS beneficiaries are granted authorization to work in the US (and in some cases the ability to travel internationally) and a reprieve from deportation. But outside of that, TPS doesn’t grant many other benefits; beneficiaries do not have legal permanent resident status, and while a small number of beneficiaries may be eligible for green cards through the sponsorship of a US citizen family member, the program is not intended to provide a path to citizenship.

In practice, that meant that once a country’s TPS was up for review, presidents had two choices: They could renew TPS for that country, kicking the can down the road; or they could terminate it and give thousands of people no way to stay legally in the US.

Unsurprisingly, most presidents chose the former. But equally unsurprisingly, the Trump administration is taking the opposite approach. With six opportunities to extend TPS over its nine months in office, it’s fully extended one of them — South Sudan — while terminating three countries’ protections on delays and offering six-month punts twice (Honduras and the initial six-month extension for Haiti).

Over its first year in office, the Trump administration has made it clear that it wants to completely overhaul the basis on which the US grants legal status to immigrants. It envisions a “merit-based” immigration system in which individual immigrants are selected based on their high level of education and relevant professional skills — and the government has no obligation to let immigrants come to or stay in the US just because their homes and families are already here.

There are a lot of current US immigration policies that run afoul of the Trump administration’s ideas of merit, but TPS might be the biggest affront to their vision. Not only does it extend legal protections to people based almost entirely on what’s happened in their home countries, rather than what they can contribute as individuals, but it applies to people who were already living in the US when TPS was granted — instead of allowing the US to select immigrants in advance.

But the fundamental problem, from the Trump administration’s point of view, is that TPS is designed to be temporary, and a temporary program shouldn’t be leading people to settle in the US.

To that end, the administration has taken nearly every chance it’s gotten to wind down TPS protections. In September, it announced that it was giving about 500 Sudanese a final 18 months on TPS. In November, it hit 59,000 Haitian immigrants and 2,500 Nicaraguan immigrants with the same 18-month deadline. (It was unable to come to a decision about the fate of 57,000 Honduran immigrants, forcing an automatic six-month extension, which will expire this spring.) And now it’s doing the same for what it estimates to be 260,500 Salvadorans.

The Trump administration thinks El Salvador is too dangerous to take immigrants from, but too safe to qualify for TPS

The statute creating TPS tells the secretary to look at “conditions in the foreign state” when making decisions about TPS. The Trump administration’s review, it claims, found that El Salvador has recovered sufficiently from the 2001 earthquake to be a safe place to send hundreds of thousands of immigrants back to. And on a press call Monday, senior administration officials pointed to the “repatriation” of tens of thousands of Salvadorans from the US in recent years as evidence that the Salvadoran government can successfully reintegrate people.

This is not exactly the way the Trump administration tends to describe El Salvador. The country is the home base of MS-13 — the transnational gang Trump has referred to as “monsters,” and which he and his top officials use to argue for everything from tightening asylum laws to defunding cities that don’t maximize compliance with federal immigration agents. In fact, the administration has bragged about how many MS-13 gang members it has deported to El Salvador — the very same people it’s now claiming are proof of the country’s ability to absorb returned immigrants.

In 2015 (the most recent year for which data is available from United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime), El Salvador had 108.64 homicides per 100,000 people. That made it the deadliest country in the world by a wide margin — the next most dangerous, Honduras, had 63.75 homicides per 100,000 — and 22 times as dangerous as the United States.

El Salvador is slightly safer than it was in 2015. In January 2017, the country had its first day without a murder in two years. But by fall, violence was spreading again: In September, the country witnessed 435 homicides, or almost 15 per day.

American policy has deeply shaped El Salvador’s recent past anyway. The US supported one of the sides in the civil war that led to the country’s original TPS grant. In the 1990s, efforts to deport immigrants who had been convicted of crimes played a major role in exporting MS-13 — which started as a Los Angeles prison gang — to El Salvador, where it took root.

More recently, the flow of Salvadorans seeking asylum in the US, usually out of fear of violence from MS-13 or other gangs, is disproportionately made up of unaccompanied children and families — in part because of US laws offering guarantees for standards of treatment (and, in the case of unaccompanied children, options for legal status) that aren’t available to single adults. (This has been cited by some Republicans as a reason to change those laws, so as not to “incentivize” children or families fleeing violence to come to the US.)

The Trump administration’s line on TPS is that it’s not about the broader stability of a country, but just about recovery from the initial disaster. But the federal government has the authority to grant or extend TPS based on “ongoing armed conflict” or “other extraordinary temporary conditions.” Asked on Monday about those criteria, a senior administration official simply said it did not believe those conditions applied to El Salvador in 2018.

The Trump administration is attempting to deny — or simply ignore — that the people they’re stripping of status have deep roots in the US

It’s not even that Salvadoran immigrants are now being pushed to return to the same gang violence they fled to come to the US. By definition, every Salvadoran immigrant with TPS has been here for at least 17 years — before the homicide rate skyrocketed. As of January 2017, according to an estimate from the Center for Migration Studies, 51 percent of Salvadorans with TPS had been in the US at least 20 years.

Salvadorans aren’t just the biggest population of those with TPS; they’re also the best integrated. According to the CMS estimates, 85 percent speak some English, with 48 percent speaking English “well, very well,” or exclusively. Their labor force participation rate is 88 percent — above the US average of 63 percent — and their unemployment rate is 5 percent. There are 45,000 mortgages held in the names of Salvadoran TPS holders. TPS holders make up a substantial portion (16 percent) of all Salvadorans in the US.

From the administration’s perspective, all of this is a sign that previous presidents screwed up, by allowing TPS protections to continue after the initial disaster that spurred them faded into the past. But its relentlessly narrow focus leaves out a large group of US citizens: the 192,700 children who have been born in the US to at least one parent who is a Salvadoran with TPS.

Most of these children are almost certainly under the age of 21 (the age at which they’d be able to sponsor their parents for green cards, under certain circumstances). Those TPS holders who were eligible for legal status have probably already gotten it — University of Kansas professor Cecilia Menjívar estimates that tens of thousands of Salvadoran immigrants got TPS in 2001 but no longer have it (presumably because they’ve gotten permanent legal status or left the country).

When a reporter asked on Monday whether the Trump administration was telling parents with TPS to take their US-born, US citizen minor children to El Salvador, the senior administration official said, “We’re not getting involved in individual family decisions.”

Pushing hundreds of thousands of people back into the shadows in the name of a “permanent” solution

As the Trump administration has ended TPS for country after country, it’s started to emphasize that it’s up to Congress to find a “permanent solution” to address the fate of the people it’s stripping of legal status. Because TPS was never intended to be permanent — and because it doesn’t itself provide a pathway for people to become permanent residents — the administration maintains that if Congress decides that these 260,000 Salvadoran immigrants (and the 62,000 other immigrants whom it’s stripping of TPS in the next year and a half) should stay in the US, it’s up to Congress to let them apply for green cards.

There’s a difference between telling Congress to come up with a solution and actually pressuring it to do so. The administration hasn’t endorsed any bills to grant permanent status to TPS holders; the only immigration bill it has endorsed, the RAISE Act, would slash legal immigration instead of opening up new pathways for it.

And, of course, the administration has already pulled a move like this before. When it announced in September it was winding down the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Trump claimed he was giving Congress six months to find a “permanent solution” for the 700,000 immigrants protected from deportation under DACA; with less than two months left, negotiations are nearly at a standstill, in large part due to the administration’s apparent insistence on getting its entire immigration agenda passed as part of a DACA deal.

If the administration really does think that a “permanent solution” that will allow Salvadorans to stay in the US is forthcoming, it’s not telling Salvadorans that. The purpose of delaying the end of TPS by 18 months, the administration says, is to give current TPS holders time to adjust to permanent status if eligible — and to make arrangements to leave the US if not.

Eighteen months may seem like a long time. But for people who’ve been in the US for 18 years — with children who’ve never lived anywhere else — that may not be nearly enough.

The immigrants facing the loss of TPS have another option the administration didn’t specify (and that it doesn’t tend to acknowledge). They can remain in the US after their legal status expires, becoming unauthorized immigrants. They’d join the 11 million current unauthorized immigrants, many of whom were under little risk of deportation in the final years of the Obama administration and now have to deal with the fear of ICE apprehension on a daily basis. They’d join the other tens of thousands of immigrants who will have lost TPS and stayed. And they’ll join, unless Congress has come up with a bill in time, the 700,000 US-raised immigrants who are at risk with the end of DACA.

The Trump administration says it wants permanent solutions. But in its first year, its immigration legacy has been to move more and more people into contingency and vulnerability.

Liberals Livid After Trump Makes Announcement About Term Limits For Congress

Published

on

By

Liberals have another reason to be livid after President Donald Trump just made a shocking announcement about term limits for members of Congress. This is going to make a lot of career politicians nervous.

Career politicians have plagued our government for longer than anyone can remember. While there are some good apples in the bunch, many self-serving swamp creatures try their hardest to stick around Congress in order to build personal wealth and maintain power. Unfortunately, the end result is stagnation and underachievement for what should be a productive highly-paid group of “public servants.”

Now, President Donald Trump is taking aim at the career politicians in the Washington, D.C. swamp with a new announcement on Twitter. The President’s tweet comes just a week after he met with freshman lawmakers to talk about term limits and how they could be introduced into legislation.

“I recently had a terrific meeting with a bipartisan group of freshman lawmakers who feel very strongly in favor of Congressional term limits. I gave them my full support and endorsement for their efforts. #DrainTheSwamp,” Trump wrote.

According to The Times, Trump held a meeting in the Oval Office on Wednesday, April 25, 2018, with Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA) and other freshman lawmakers from both parties to discuss the possibility of imposing term limits on federal lawmakers.

The idea of imposing term limits is not new to Trump. During his presidential campaign, he said, “If I’m elected president, I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress,” during a rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado in October 2016.

Following the meeting with President Trump, Fitzpatrick said he is hopeful that new legislation imposing term limits on federal lawmakers could gain momentum in Congress. Fitzpatrick said that the President was receptive to the idea of introducing legislation for term limits. Fitzpatrick said that he also told Trump that it was during his time working for the FBI that he saw a direct relationship between an official’s time in office and their propensity for corruption.

“We were all taking the same position: We need legislative term limits,” Fitzpatrick said of those participating in the meeting. The Pennsylvania Congressman characterized the lack of term restrictions as a “root issue” in political corruption and said that his goal is to put a 12-year cap on the time any politician can spend in Congress. Fitzpatrick is hopeful that the President’s legislative team can refine the proposals which were presented during their meeting to increase the chances for success.

“I told the president we’re not going to let the perfect be the enemy of the good,” Fitzpatrick said. He emphasized that the process of implementing term limits is a “heavy lift” that requires a Constitutional amendment.

Fitzpatrick campaigned successfully in 2016 on a push for term limits and is ramping up his message in preparation for the upcoming election in November where he is looking keep his seat in the House of Representatives. Fitzpatrick’s Republican primary opponent, attorney Dean Malik, also supports introducing term limits for members of Congress. Malik has stated that 18 years should be the cap for federal lawmakers. “Term limits are essential to prevent the growth of an entrenched political class,” Malik said.

The following is a clip of Fitzpatrick talking about term limits during his previous congressional campaign in 2016. In my opinion, this guy has it right when it comes to term limits. Our government needs a thorough overhaul of crucial policies, and term limits are exactly where we should start.

Fitzpatrick is looking beyond his meeting with the President to continue his push for term limits and said that the other members who were present — representatives Jodey Arrington, R-Texas, Vicente Gonzalez, D-Texas, Mike Gallagher, R-Wisconsin, and Ro Khanna, D-California — plan to create a bipartisan bill and press the issue in floor speeches in the future.

When Fitzpatrick was asked if a large incoming wave of freshman Congress members could be advantageous, he replied with optimism. “I sure hope so,” he said. “It’s always hard to get members of Congress to vote against their own self-interests.” Now, with the support of the President, I think that term limits can be introduced through the hard work of people like Fitzpatrick who realize that 12 years is plenty of time for a federal lawmaker to stick around.

Liberals Freak As Pence Arrives At Border With Special Message For Migrant Caravan

Published

on

By

Liberals are freaking out after Vice President Mike Pence made a visit to the U.S.-Mexico border with a special message for the migrant caravan attempting to enter the United States. If you’re a “deplorable,” you’ll love every word of this.

According to Daily Caller, Vice President Mike Pence paid a visit to a group of Border Patrol agents on Monday, April 30, 2018. While Pence was visiting, he delivered a special message for not only the hard-working men and women who stand watch at our border but also for the migrant caravan making its way into the U.S.

“This is a time in the life of the nation where we are especially grateful for the tough job that your teams do on our borders and I want to assure you that President Trump and I are absolutely committed to seeing to the construction of a border wall but also reforming our immigration laws,” Pence said, according to the Desert Sun.

Next, Pence sent a message to the caravan of people who publicized their journey up through Mexico with the intention of entering the United States without regard for our laws. Some of those have reportedly begun the process of filing for asylum while others have been photographed climbing the border wall in defiance of our immigration laws.

“We’ve been watching with great interest the advance of the so-called caravan and are grateful for the efforts particularly over this weekend that our Border Patrol has been making and ensuring that those some 150 that are still part of the caravan are dealt with in a manner consistent with the law and that our laws are enforced,” Pence continued as he spoke during a meeting with Border Patrol agents in Calexico, California.

“A nation without borders is not a nation as President Trump has said many times, and the briefing we will have today, the remarks that I’ll share in a moment and the opportunity that we’ll have to be along that new section of border wall, give evidence to the fact that this is a President, this is an administration that is absolutely committed to border integrity and to the sovereignty of the United States,” Pence added.

I could not agree more with Vice President Mike Pence’s remarks in support of President Donald Trump’s position that a “nation without borders is not a nation.” In reality, the push from liberals to flood our country doesn’t stem from a lack of understanding about sovereignty. The left completely understands border security and the concept of lawful immigration. The problem is that those principles don’t fit their political agenda because they need illegal immigrants to help them build a new base of Democratic voters.

Democrats would be lining the borders with their own bodies as a human wall to keep out immigrants if they were sure to vote Republican. This isn’t about humanitarian efforts or an act of kindness for liberals, it’s about voting, and while they continue to push for open-borders, there is a price to pay.

Every year the taxpayers in our country foot the bill for the federal and state programs that provide housing, food, and education to illegal immigrants and their families. This tremendous burden has been placed on the backs of hard-working Americans by politicians who are only interested in keeping the flow of illegal immigrants coming into the country.

In exchange for carrying the burden of supporting millions of illegal immigrants, Americans have been given higher taxes, fewer jobs, and the nightmare of gangs like MS-13. These problems are just a few of the consequences that average Americans suffer.

It’s infuriating to see politicians push for destructive policies that promote illegal immigration while knowing that they themselves will never have to live in the communities which are negatively impacted. It’s time for Congress to honor the will of the people and fund Trump’s border wall.

After ‘Feminist’ Comedian Bullies Sarah Huckabee Calling Her Ugly to Her Face, Roseanne Knocks Her Out COLD

Published

AJR REPORTS: ROSEANNE BARR HAS HAD ENOUGH OF MICHELLE WOLF’S NASTY COMMENTS TOWARDS CONSERVATIVES AND DECIDED TO GIVE HER A FEW RULES OF COMEDY.

Michell Wolf was invited to the democrats White House Correspondent’s dinner to make the journalist laugh at the party. However, what started out as fun and laughter soon turned into criticism and lies.

Wolf’s initial attack was on Vice President Mike Pence and abortions. Michelle Wolf was joking about how everyone should try and have an abortion, and how you really got to knock the baby out of there… NOT FUNNY!

And this wasn’t even the most disgusting part of her attack. She then decided to bash two conservative women in Trump’s administration who were attending the White House Correspondent’s Dinner. Ms. Wolf sure made herself look like a complete idiot in front of the entire White House. Roseanne Barr had the greatest comeback to Wolf’s jokes…

According to 100percentfedup:

First, she wished that a tree would land on White House Communications Director Kellyanne Conway:

“You guys gotta stop putting Kellyanne Conway on your shows. All she does is lie. If you don’t give her a platform, she has nowhere to lie.

It’s like that old saying, “If a tree falls in the woods, how do we get Kellyanne under that tree? I’m not suggesting she gets hurt, just stuck.’”

Wolf saved some of her nastiest material, however, for White House Press Secretary, Sarah Sanders, who was seated next to her at the podium:

“And of course, we have Sarah Huckabee-Sanders. We are graced with Sarah’s presence tonight. I have to say, I’m a little starstruck, I loved you as “Aunt Lydia” in “The Handmade’s Tale.” (laughter from the crowd) Mike Pence, if you haven’t seen it, you would love it.

I actually really like Sarah. I think she’s really resourceful. Like she burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smokey eye. Like maybe she’s born with it. Maybe it’s lies.

It’s probably lies.

I’m never really sure what to call Sarah Huckabee-Sanders? Is it Sarah-Sanders? Is it Sarah-Huckabee Sanders? Is it cousin Huckabee? Is it Aunti Huckabee-Sanders? Like, what’s Uncle Tom, but for white women who disappoint other white women? Oh, I know, ‘Aunt Coulter’.”

Surprisingly, some of the most biased journalists in the business expressed their disgust in Michelle Wolf’s “comedy act”.

Politco reporter Kyle Cheney got it right with this tweet:

Legendary female comedian, Roseanne Barr pointed out how liberals use women to attack and bully women, suggesting that the liberal press condoned Wolf’s embarrassing bullying of Sanders and Conway in front of a captive audience of liberal wolves. Barr tweeted: “they use women to attack and bully women.”

Johnny Argent used a great analogy about last nights vulgar comedian and the liberal journalists who clapped for her.

Barr then tweets the three rules of comedy. Although she didn’t address Wolf directly, it’s pretty clear who Barr’s three rules were meant for.

Here are Roseanne Barr’s three rules of comedy:
