President Donald Trump said Monday a bomb blast in Manhattan highlights the need for an immigration overhaul - as the man arrested was revealed to be part of a large Bangladeshi family sponsored by his aunt or uncle. Trump said that the U.S. ´must fix its lax immigration system, which allows far too many dangerous, inadequately vetted people´ into the country. The Republican president pointed to his controversial travel ban as an example of the kind of policy that needs to be put in place. And he called on Congress to end ´chain migration,´ in which family members are permitted to join relatives
How is it the Dems always call for gun control, and getting rid of the 2nd Amendment. But they never seem to call for bomb, muslim, illegal immigration or migration control. How is that? I don´t think they´re serious about the safety of this country or her people. That´s what their actions say.
Liberals simply don´t CARE ... the liberal elite need every single one of those "migration" & "refugee" (eventual) votes in the demographic horse race if they are to win elections despite the deplorables´ Republican votes. For Democrats Party ALWAYS comes before country. What do a few thousand dead matter when power is at stake. Travel Ban? "We don´t need no stinkin´ ban!"
There is no excuse whatsoever for chain migration allowing grandparents, aunts, uncles and all their wives/husbands/brats to automatically come here. Barry allowed 1,000,000 singles to come here, which translated to how many total? 30,000,000? The last jihadi caught brought 29 with him. All unvetted of course. They automatically collected welfare, Section H housing, HEAP, Social Security for the old folks, etc. No wonder States are in financial Armageddon.
We used to question the logic of these incredibly stupid immigration policies but eight years of Barack Obama explained it all. He was an illegal immigrant so he wanted to open the gates to all of them. He is a sexual pervert so he and the linebacker wanted all forms of sexual perversion to be legal and acceptable. He is power mad, therefore he wanted to be POTUS, for life if he had been adept enough to have kept the mask on - you get the picture. A smarter man would have had us living in totalitarian bliss by now.
BUT is anyone (the Nets etc?) reporting on this, how MANY people come in via chain migration, people who not only CAN´T be vetted (in Bangladesh????) but who bring nothing viable with them, anything they can contribute, anything to take them off the welfare rolls, etc. The fact that the family of this man is "outraged" at police questions is an atrocity......I´d love to know how they would be questioned, if at all and not just a firing squad, in Bangladesh. People who get into this country so easily (as opposed to those who spend 10 years and tons of $ to manage to become citizens) seem to think we owe THEM.
I´m with you NO. 1. I´ll go even farther. If you came to this country via the chain migration route, and you commit a terror attack, then everyone up and down your chain should be deported and all the minor children in that chain will be taken away and given to nice Jewish families to raise.
16, was it a Walmart in Plano, Richardson or Irving, Texas? Many, many hot Muslim chicks in July wearing the "She´s Got Betty Davis Eyes" black tents is quite common nowadays. You gotta admire those loving hubbies who wait outside in the black Escalade, running the A/C, while the smokin´ hot tent clad wife loads up the groceries in the back then waits for permission to open the back door to get in the back seat behind that smother-her-with-love Muslim husband. Right out the pages of a Harlequin Romance.
The vote hungry Democrats and cheap labor Republicans want mass unskilled illegal and illegal immigration to continue.
The Democrats know that the vast majority of unskilled foreign born aliens who are for the most part poor people, and are dependent upon government provided benefits and services who eventually become US voters will become Democrat voters. That why the Democrats are always out there trying to further liberalize the immigration laws, sabotage and obstruct government efforts to deport illegal aliens, support sanctuary cities and oppose effective borderline barriers (the Wall).
As for the cheap labor Republicans, up to now they generally allowed the liberal Democrats and their very liberal immigration advocacy and rights groups to design and say what the immigration laws would provide, as long as those liberal Democrat immigration provisions generated a huge amount of cheap foreign labor that business interests who finance many Republican political campaigns could hire at very low wages.
The fact that such massive immigration impacted adversely on American communities and ordinary American workers, their wages, job related benefits and general working conditions have been of no consequence to both political parties, at least until President Trump came on the national political scene.
Chain migration is the way the demographics of this country get changed. Fundamental transformation as a process. Obozo wanted to fundamentally change the country into an Islamic caliphate and what better way than to import Muslims by the millions. It’s like seeding dandelions into your vegetable and flower garden. If left unstopped the weeds take over. So now the question is what to do about it.
Agree with Trump on this one just as I agreed with Marco Rubio years ago when he was urging an end to chain migration. A lot of folks missed Rubio´s prescience because The Donald was too keen on imagining new insults to thinking Republicans. As a former Democrat, Trump was unfamiliar with thinking clearly in politics. He´s learning.
It was reported today during the WH press conference that the initial family member had indeed won in the Visa diversity lottery. Bangladesh had apparently been underrepresented in the immigration demographics.
NEWCASTLE Airport has been closed due to firefighters battling a nearby blaze with all flights being grounded until further notice from authorities as smoke and flames threaten the region. The New South Wales airport has been closed due to water bombing activity near the runway. Authorities are planning to reassess the situation later. In a statement the Newcastle Airport said: “The safety of our passengers is paramount and we will continue to work with local emergency authorities to monitor the nearby fire and provide more information to the public as it becomes available.” More to follow…
President Donald Trump has denied he is a racist in response to controversy over his recent remarks. ´I´m not a racist. I´m the least racist person you have ever interviewed. That I can tell you,´ he told reporters in Florida on Sunday, as he was on his way to dinner with House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy. It marks the president´s first direct response to accusations of racism that have dogged him since he allegedly asked ´Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?´ in an Oval Office meeting about immigration earlier this week. Trump has denied
VANCOUVER - Foreign ministers from around 20 nations gather on Tuesday to discuss how to curb North Korea’s nuclear ambitions through diplomatic and financial pressure, but China, seen as a key player in any long-term solution, will be absent. The Vancouver meeting, co-hosted by Canada and the United States, comes amid signs that tensions on the peninsula have eased, at least temporarily. North and South Korea held talks for the first time in two years last week and Pyongyang says it will send athletes across the border to the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics. But the United States and others say the international
Did Trump misspeak…use a slur to make a point…and thereby arouse all those dainty Liberals into a snit? Not far from where I’m writing this, the kosher butcher shop is long gone; across the street, the church that once stood tall is now boarded up. But next to it stands a mosque newly built and freshly painted. English in the neighborhood is a foreign tongue and nobody knows Frank Sinatra. The boys don’t play stickball. The girls in their veils don’t play hopscotch and all the cabs are driven by men from Somalia and Afghanistan. Strangers are not greeted warmly. That’s a snapshot of what
A man has been charged with the murder of a travel agent who died when her throat was allegedly slit in front of horrified shoppers. Andrew Burke, 30, of St Helens, Merseyside, was arrested yesterday following the death of Cassie Hayes, 28. Police have now confirmed he has been charged with her murder. Ms Hayes was seen covered in blood as she was carried out of the Southport TUI branch where she worked after what police described as a ´domestic incident´. Burke was named locally as the man arrested following the horrific incident, which took place around 1.30pm. His ex-fiancée, Laura Williams, had been in
AT LEAST eight people are dead and 50 injured after a reported explosion in Portugal, it has been reported. Eight people are dead and a further 50 have been injured after a reported boiler explosion and fire at a building in Tondela, Portugal. Mayor Jose Antonio de Jesus said: “Several dozen people have been injured, some lightly and others gravely, and are still being assisted.” A wood-burning stove is believed to have exploded in the two-story building around 250 kilometres north of Lisbon. Civil Protection Agency commander Paulo Santos told local radio station TSF that at least 50 people were
This is the elite band of brothers, including Prince Harry, that were sent on a top secret mission to take on the Taliban in one of the most dangerous areas of Afghanistan. Last week, The Mail on Sunday revealed how one of the courageous soldiers pictured here, Warrant Officer Nathan Hunt, is believed to have tragically killed himself after struggling to cope with the effects of battlefield trauma. Since then two more members of Harry’s desert reconnaissance unit have come forward to say they too have suffered serious mental health issues as a direct result of their harrowing experiences in the war
Chris Matthews was caught on hot mic audio mocking Hillary Clinton and then joking that he should have brought along date rape drugs for his interview with the the former Secretary of State. The Cut obtained the footage, which was taken on the set of his MSNBC show Hardball while he filmed from Iowa is January 2016 during the Democratic primary in that state between Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders. ´Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?´ asks Matthews at the top of the tape, putting on a posh accent as he is handed a bottle of water that
NEW YORK Newark Airport has been evacuated following a fiery explosion underneath a terminal building. Shocking images show a column of flames shooting up from a roadway at the international airport terminal amid the blast. Sections of Newark Liberty International Airport were evacuated and closed off to the public after reports smoke filled parts of Terminal C amid the blast. The blast was caused when an electrical transformer had caught fire underneath the airport building. No one was injured in the blaze, which occurred around 11.00 local time (16.00 GMT). Flames sprung up from inside a manhole operated by electric company PSE&G, based in
President Donald Trump faced a bevy of questions on Friday about claims that he referred to Haiti and African nations as ´s***holes´ in an immigration meeting at the White House. Trump´s alleged remarks, which he has disputed, were thrown back in his face at an ill-timed Martin Luther King Jr. Day event in the Roosevelt Room. ´Mr. President, will you give an apology for the statement yesterday?´ asked American Urban Radio Network correspondent and CNN contributor April Ryan. ´Mr. President, are you a racist?´ she asked in a second attempt. The president ducked Ryan´s questions as he said goodbye to his guests and
President Donald Trump denied making a widely condemned comment railing against accepting immigrants from ´s***hole countries,´ even as he admitted to using ´tough´ language in an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers. ´The language used by me at the DACA meeting was tough, but this was not the language used,´ Trump wrote, using unusually passive language in an effort to walk back the comment. ´What was really tough was the outlandish proposal made - a big setback for DACA!´ Trump tweeted Friday. The tweet came hours after a bombshell report about Trump´s comments, which the White House did not immediately deny. Trump made a public
President Donald Trump, frustrated with America´s continued responsibility for immigrants fleeing Third World natural disasters, asked members of Congress Thursday in vulgar terms why the United States had to shoulder such a burden. ´Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?´ Trump said, according to two people who were briefed on the meeting and then leaked the comment to The Washington Post. Trump was reportedly speaking about Haitians and citizens of various African nations. Instead, he said, the U.S. should seek to assimilate people from countries like Norway, whose prime minister he met with a day earlier. Unlike Haiti
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Friday she will not attend President Trump’s first State of the Union address following his vulgar remarks aimed at Haiti, El Salvador and African nations. “Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Waters said on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes.” “Someone who lies in the face of facts, someone who can change their tune day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in?" (Snip) Waters is the third Democratic lawmaker to announce they won’t attend Trump’s address, which
Michelle Obama and her eldest daughter Malia made a rare appearance in swimsuits as they are enjoying the sun in Miami.The mother and 19-year-old daughter were spotted walking off Miami Beach on Saturday surrounded by friends - including former Obama administration senior advisor Valerie Jarrett - and Secret Service personnel.Michelle, 53, looked sensational in a white bikini top matched with high-waisted white denim cut-off shorts as she trudged her way barefoot through the sand, holding her shoes in one hand.
A Civil Defense employee is set to be retrained after a shocking blunder on Saturday morning, when a mistaken alert warning of an inbound ballistic missile sent thousands fleeing for shelter. The false alarm was caused by a Hawaii Emergency Management Agency employee who ´pushed the wrong buttons´ during an internal drill timed to coincide with a shift handover at 8.07am. The all-clear phone alert was not sent until 38 minutes later. Incredibly, officials said the employee who made the mistake wasn´t aware of it until mobile phones in the command center began displaying the alert. ´This guy feels bad,
Chelsea Manning, the former US army soldier jailed for giving sensitive documents to WikiLeaks, has filed documents to run for the US Senate, the Washington Post reported. Ms Manning, a former intelligence expert previously known as Bradley Manning, was released from military prison in 2017 after Barack Obama waived her sentence. The 30-year-old would be taking on the incumbent Ben Cardin, a 74-year-old Democrat who has held the seat for more than a decade.Miss Manning was arrested in May 2010, while serving with the US army in Iraq, after she confessed to a computer hacker, Adrian Lamo, that she was
Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump´s former top strategist, alleged in journalist Michael Wolff´s tell-all book about the Trump White House that the president´s longtime attorney, Marc Kasowitz, "took care" of 100 women during the presidential campaign. "Look, Kasowitz has known [Trump] for twenty-five years. Kasowitz has gotten him out of all kinds of jams," Bannon reportedly said. "Kasowitz on the campaign — what did we have, a hundred women? Kasowitz took care of all of them."
Actress and yogurt salesman Jamie Lee Curtis knows exactly whom to blame for a false alarm that told Hawaiians an incoming ballistic missile was detected. It was all President Trump´s fault. Duh. Now, never mind that Trump was in Florida at the time. On the golf course. And forget that Hawaii´s Emergency Management Agency (EMA), run by the Hawaiian state government, apologized for setting off the false alarm when someone pushed the wrong button. In a Saturday afternoon post on Twitter, Curtis attacked Trump, writing "YOU DID THIS!" "This Hawaii missile scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that
Lots of the news from sub-Saharan Africa is about war, famine, poverty or political upheaval. So it’s understandable if many Americans think most Africans who immigrate to the United States are poorly educated and desperate. Research tells another story. While many are refugees, large numbers are beneficiaries of the diversity-visa program aimed at boosting immigration from underrepresented nations. And on average, African immigrants are better educated than people born in the U.S. or the immigrant population as a whole.
Former President Bill Clinton said on Twitter Saturday that no Clinton Foundation funds were used to pay for his daughter´s wedding. After President Trump reportedly made crude remarks about Haiti and other less-developed countries, some on the right pointed to alleged mishandling of Haitian earthquake relief funds by the Clinton Foundation. On Twitter, President Clinton slammed the notion that any funds from the foundation, whether earmarked for Haiti or not, were used in association with his daughter Chelsea´s wedding to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky. No Clinton Foundation funds—dedicated to Haiti or otherwise—
Shortly after winning the election, President Trump told the New York Times that he probably would not make good on his promise to pursue a new criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s many shady deals, from her email server to her campaign apparatus to her and Bill’s massive and well-connected foundation. Trump declared that further investigation would be “very, very divisive for the country.” Unfortunately for Hillary – and possibly for Bill as well – some things are beyond the control of even the most powerful man in the world. Some conservative members of Congress may force the Justice Department to take
President Trump is employing techniques “popularized by Joseph Stalin” to demonize the press and his approach could do great harm to the nation in the long run, Sen. Jeff Flake said Sunday. In an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” the retiring Arizona Republican and outspoken critic of the president said he’s deeply troubled by how Mr. Trump attacks the media. “You can talk about crowd size, and this is pretty innocuous if there’s a falsehood. But when you reflexively refer to the press as the ‘enemy of the people’ or ‘fake news,’ that has real damage,” Mr. Flake said. “It
Axios.com’s Mike Allen reports that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is now considered a lock for Speaker of the House in 2019, as her party is expected to sweep the 2018 midterm elections.If so, it would be one of the most remarkable comebacks in political history, after Pelosi led her party to an historic defeat in 2010 after serving as the first female Speaker for four years, then clung to power over a shrinking minority party for eight. Allen notes: “It would take a flip of 24 seats for Dems to take over. The average loss for the president’s
As TGP’s Kristinn Taylor reported, the government of Hawaii scared the populace with a text message to cellphone users alerting them to an incoming ballistic missile. The alert was reportedly repeated on television broadcasts. It turned out to be be bogus.Hawaii has been on edge this year over North Korea’s threats to nuke the United States that have been backed up by missile and nuclear bomb tests. (Photo) Hawaiian residents were panicking! It took 40 minutes to send out a second alert informing residents that it was a false alarm. WOW! (Tweet) Video from Hawaii shows young children being placed
