Congressman Jordan said that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told him that there are an incredible number of false asylum seekers at America’s southern border.
“We had ICE in our office last week, and they told us just on the asylum issue, just on asylum, 2,000 people a week showing up at the border,” Rep. Jordan said. “Think about that, that’s 100,000 people a year and they told us that 80 percent of those people wind up not being legitimate asylum seekers.”
The House will vote on two immigration bills this week, an amnesty bill supported by Speaker Paul Ryan and the Trump-endorsed bill sponsored by House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA).
The Ohio Republican then explained why conservatives support the Goodlatte bill over the Ryan amnesty bill, saying that “it’s the one that done with what’s consistent with the election. It says it will build the border security wall, end chain migration, stop the visa lottery, deal with sanctuary cities, reform the asylum law — right down the list of everything we know needs to happen and move to a merit-based [immigration system] and then we will deal with the DACA population.”
As for the Ryan bill, Jordan said, “I think they deal some good things on border security, I don’t think they go far enough with what we told the American people we were going to do. That’s the fundamental thing, that we keep our word and do what we can and campaigned on. That’s Chairman Goodlatte’s legislation.”
Obama and Democrats Incentivized This ‘Family Separation’
Until Obama came along, illegal border crossings primarily involved young, single men. Obama incentivized the idea of dragging minor children along on this dangerous journey (where many children are sexually assaulted) through his policy of “catch and release.”
Once word got out that illegals with small children would be let loose into America, the number of children crossing the border exploded.
Again, the last thing decent people want is for the American government to further incentivize the cruel act of bringing small children along on this brutal trip across the border, which is exactly what Trump is hoping to stop with his zero tolerance policy.
Barack Obama Separated Illegal Alien Families, Media Said Nothing
Under Obama, when illegal border crossers were put into the criminal justice system, families were indeed separated. Obama, of course, rarely prosecuted, even though the law calls for it.
Neither Democrats nor the media cared about family separation then, which proves this manufactured and coordinated uproar is only about politics.
- Trump dossier author Christopher Steele appears for court-ordered deposition which took place for took four hours and was held in a private office.
- There were more than a dozen people in the room: Mr. Gubarev’s two U.S. attorneys and his two British attorneys; two BuzzFeed attorneys and their two local counsel; Mr. Steele and his legal team; two representatives from the government, to make sure no state secrets came out; a court master; and a stenographer and a videographer.
By Rowan Scarborough – The Washington Times – Monday, June 18, 2018
Mr. Steele, a former British spy, has so far evaded requests by U.S. congressional committees to appear as a witness.
He is being sued for libel by Aleksej Gubarev, a Russian tech entrepreneur, who Mr. Steele said in his dossier was responsible for hacking Democratic Party computers and infecting them with spyware and pornography.
The session happened Monday in London.
“I can confirm that the deposition took place today as scheduled, that Mr. Steele appeared, was professional and congenial and that we are satisfied with the results of the deposition,” Val Gurvits, a Gubarev attorney, told The Washington Times in an email. “I cannot, however, give you any details regarding Mr. Steele’s testimony because his entire testimony was designated as confidential by his legal team.”
President Trump twitterstorm on Monday slams the Democrats, warning them not to
“wait until after the election because you are going to lose!”. The president also blames the Democrats for current immigration problem: “It is the Democrats fault for being weak and ineffective with Boarder Security and Crime…Children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country.”
The Democrats should get together with their Republican counterparts and work something out on Border Security & Safety. Don’t wait until after the election because you are going to lose!
Why don’t the Democrats give us the votes to fix the world’s worst immigration laws? Where is the outcry for the killings and crime being caused by gangs and thugs, including MS-13, coming into our country illegally?
It is the Democrats fault for being weak and ineffective with Boarder Security and Crime. Tell them to start thinking about the people devastated by Crime coming from illegal immigration. Change the laws!
Children are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth as a means to enter our country. Has anyone been looking at the Crime taking place south of the border. It is historic, with some countries the most dangerous places in the world. Not going to happen in the U.S.
VIDEO! CHEERING CROWDS WELCOME TRUMP AND MELANIA TO HIS D.C. HOTEL – FANS CALL FOR NOBEL PEACE PRIZE
( Daily Mail ) President Donald Trump and his wife Melania were clapped and cheered into the Trump International Hotel in Washington on Saturday night.
Trump and the First Lady were seen walking up the stairs to a crowd of excited fans and staff, who are seen holding out their phones and reaching out to shake his hand.
‘No more missiles,’ he tells the crowd repeatedly, as one overjoyed woman screams out: ‘Nobel Peace Prize’.
Staff members were seen standing at the top of the stairs in a line, and Trump went to shake one man’s hand before the video cut out.
Trump was at his own hotel for dinner with his wife, who appeared slightly taken aback by the extremely warm welcome.
When the couple reached the top of the stairs, Trump began to greet his supporters and shake hands, while Melania moved off to the side – but many in the crowd were calling for the First Lady.
- “I think Comey was the ringleader of this whole den of thieves,” Trump said
- “Comey will now officially go down as the worst leader, by far, in the history of the FBI. I did a great service to the people in firing him. Good Instincts. Christopher Wray will bring it proudly back!”
President Trump broke his silence on the scathing inspector general’s report with a vengeance Friday, first tweeting that the FBI boss he fired was the “worst” in the bureau’s history, then crashing “Fox & Friends” for an impromptu interview where he ripped the “scum on top” of the Obama-era bureau and said the IG “blew it.”
The president’s comments came a day after the release of the report, which was the result of an 18-month-long investigation by DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz. Trump said the report, which found ex-FBI Director James Comey was insubordinate, showed Trump was justified in firing him.
“The IG Report is a total disaster for Comey, his minions and sadly, the FBI,” Trump tweeted early Friday. “Comey will now officially go down as the worst leader, by far, in the history of the FBI. I did a great service to the people in firing him. Good Instincts. Christopher Wray will bring it proudly back!”
In the interview with Fox’s Steve Doocy, Trump made it clear he considered Comey the leader of those “minions.”
“I think Comey was the ringleader of this whole den of thieves,” Trump said.
“If you took a poll at the FBI, [I would win],” Trump told Doocy. “I mean the real FBI, not the scum on top.”
- Lisa Page: “(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?!”
- Peter Strzok: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it”
( Daily Caller ) FBI agent Peter Strzok assured his mistress and colleague Lisa Page that they would stop Donald Trump from winning the presidency in a text message, a new report from the DOJ inspector general finds per Bloomberg News White House Correspondent Jennifer Jacobs.
“Several FBI employees Who played critical roles in the investigation sent political messages,” the report reads, according to Jacobs.
“(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” Page wrote to Strzok, Bloomberg reports.
“No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it,” Strzok reportedly replied.
The long-anticipated IG report was obtained by Bloomberg News and contained previously unrevealed text messages between Strzok and Page. The FBI pair were intimately involved in the counter-intelligence investigation of the Trump 2016 campaign. Strzok and Page have drawn criticism previously for anti-Trump text messages.
