Updated Trump administration ends DACA, with 6-month delay 08/07/2018

The Trump administration on Tuesday announced the “orderly wind down” of the Obama-era program that gave a deportation reprieve to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children – putting pressure on Congress to come up with a legislative alternative.

The Department of Homeland Security formally rescinded the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, known as DACA, with a six-month delay for current recipients. According to Acting Homeland Security Secretary Elaine Duke, the interval is meant to give Congress “time to deliver on appropriate legislative solutions.”

“However, I want to be clear that no new initial requests or associated applications filed after today will be acted on,” Duke said in a written statement.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions, speaking to reporters, blasted the Obama administration's "disrespect for the legislative process" in enacting the 2012 policy. He said the “unilateral executive amnesty” probably would have been blocked by the courts anyway.

“The executive branch, through DACA, deliberately sought to achieve what the legislative branch specifically refused to authorize on multiple occasions,” Sessions said, blaming the policy for the recent “surge” at the border. “Such an open-ended circumvention of immigration laws was an unconstitutional exercise of authority by the executive branch.”

A day earlier, Sessions sent Duke a letter with his legal determination that the 2012 executive action was unconstitutional.

The Trump administration was facing a Tuesday deadline to make a decision on DACA or face legal action by Republican state AGs who hoped to force the president’s hand in discontinuing the program.

Administration officials cast their approach Tuesday at the least disruptive option.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Trump had promised to terminate DACA, though he appeared to soften his stance since taking office. In ending the program with a six-month delay, Trump put the onus on Congress to pass a legislative fix.

According to DHS, no current beneficiaries will be impacted before March 5, 2018.

“Congress, get ready to do your job - DACA!” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

While some Republicans support the goals of the DACA program, many opposed the use of executive action to institute it, describing the move as a presidential overreach.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., is among those who now supports the call to protect so-called “Dreamers” with legislation.

“I have always believed DACA was a presidential overreach,” he said in a statement. "However, I equally understand the plight of the Dream Act kids who -- for all practical purposes know no country other than America. If President Trump makes this decision we will work to find a legislative solution to their dilemma.”

On a conference call, administration officials said Tuesday they are still prioritizing criminal aliens for deportation. But they described the original DACA criteria as very broad and cited the legal determination of the Justice Department.

During the presidential campaign, Trump referred to DACA as “illegal amnesty.” However, he seemed to edge away from that stance in April when he told the Associated Press that DACA recipients could “rest easy.”

The DACA program was formed through executive action by former President Barack Obama in 2012, allowing recipients to get a deportation reprieve – and work permits – for a two-year period subject to renewal. Under the program, individuals were able to request DACA status if they were under the age of 31 on June 15, 2012, came to the U.S. before turning 16 and have continuously lived in the country since June 15, 2007. Individuals must also have a high school diploma, GED certification, been honorably discharged from the military or still be in school. Recipients cannot have a criminal record.

Congress had been considering legislation to shield young illegal immigrants from deportation for years, dating back to the George W. Bush administration. Lawmakers tried again to pass a bill during the Obama administration, but couldn’t muster the votes amid flagging Republican support before Obama formed the program in 2012.

Nearly 800,000 undocumented youth are currently under the program's umbrella.

On Friday, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said he supported a legislative solution to protect undocumented minors, but also urged the president to reconsider scrapping DACA.

"I actually don't think he should do that and I believe that this is something that Congress has to fix," Ryan said on radio station WCLO.

What difference does it make... It makes a difference of about 14 million more illegal aliens running loose in America,  nearly double the 16 million, you choose to report.  That's a big difference... wouldn't you say?

 And my report is correct, not yours Ronald.

 Score 3 points for us women..:)

Why..  should we accept numbers you fail to cite with authoritative references... like some women you obviously believe men should defer to you simply because you 'SAY SO"... well, this man doesn't accept such unilateral statements, nor should anyone with an open mind.

I am going to vote for Tif on this, it has never been a secret that Mexico's former ambassador to the United States hates President Trump.

 3 points for Tif and the women, they have exposed more crap then you have Mr. Nelson.

Surprise, surprise... you support speculation and innuendo... fiction and wild-eyed conspiracy... hows the IRS or England conspiracy going, or the Federal Reserve of England and other such non-sensical ruminations of your fermenting mind?

I am particularly fascinated by your latest conspiracy theory...  labeling the ACLU a George Soros operation... Albeit, the ACLU is leftist and Anit-American at heart, they are not a George Soros operation. 

What will be your next revelation: That the sun rotates around the earth... that America never landed on the moon... or that Guam is about to capsize and tip over into the ocean?  Fiction is certainly no stranger to your pallet. 

 Federal Reserve of England, my my!!!" if I remember Ronald you post a blog of How a few men of the fed control a nation, did I miss understand your contempt? Or was just looking for someone to bash?

 Looks like to me once they stated, "There Is No Other Authority Higher Then Their Organization", people took a closer look at them.

 And because some of their last names is Jewish, only show that CFR placed them into position where they can not be voted out or fired.

CFR-  Council on Foreign Relations, of the British Empire, wow we, how is it these people have started writing and Amending our laws.

 So if you look at Council on Foreign Relations, and the body that voted in DACA kissing the back side of Obama. and that is what the Republican Party did.

 Kiss kiss kiss....pucker up that is what the sissy boy and girls did...LOL Tif

Tiff... there is no  "Federal Reserve of England" , there is no CFR of the British Empire those are phony constructs that you and your neo-intelligentsia would have us believe... and they smack of rank Anti-Semitism and socialist propaganda... make that communist propaganda.  You are either a dupe... or a willing tool of the left... as you attempt to misdirect the attention of true patriots from the real enemies of the Constitution ... onto some mythical groups and conspiracies, which simply have no basis or little basis in fact.  Using George Soros's name doesn't make it so... and George is a very bad apple but your posts credit him with things he has no real control over... diverting attention from the true culprits doesn't help.

Stop trying to act like a patriot ... you are not.  The more I read of your posts the more convinced I am that you need to call one of those infamous meetings where you frequently return with more unsupported... I'll release the proof latter... conspiracy theory. Like... you really have some hidden documents to support your theories... and those you have posted are completely irrelevant or full of jibberish... so much for your credibility.  You have managed to run off legitimate debate and to replace it with lunacy of the highest order.

I had to borrow my dad's wifi hotspot, mine kept crashing,

 And this time Ronald the message is from Obama,

 WE Come In Peace, Welcome To Our Democratic Democracy For DACA

Nice cartoon but what does it really have to do with the current situation... we all know DACA is illegal and an open border conspiracy tool... So, what is the solution... more cartoons?

Wake Up, its time to have a Tea Party:

Now also see Islamic Immigration Amendments- US Law, George Soros's ACLU Foundation is hard at work to destroy America's Foundation Of Constitutional Laws.


If I don't I will never hear the end of it from Tif, the vote is for Tif and the women that exposed DACA.
Anti-Semitic, Anti-American rhetoric, Mr. Nelson, all anyone needs to do is researched the names of politicians, and follow up on what organizations they are connected to.
The Federal Reserve, a treaty established by Democratic President, who was also a member of the UK Parliament.
The IRS Scandals. At one time I researched the IRS under google forum, for IRS of London England. That page of google info was removed.
Later I researched IRS Treaties of the United Kingdom, and found a the amendments, case laws, codes and so on, listed as a Treaty.

Now the cold facts, London England removed white politicians, Jewish and British, seated in Muslims.
People in America on the streets are looking at London England, the Crown as Anti-Semitic, Anti-American.
Jewish Political figures from other countries, made Anti-American statement against Us, Americans in general, and President Trump, I will publish the video.
I did view the forum of CFR, they have started replacing Jewish people with Muslims. 4 top positions have been replaced.

The Constitution specifically prohibits the President or any other government official from being a member of another nations parliament or government. Please provide the documentation to prove that our President is a member of the UK Parlament.

As for IRS Treaties ... with England... there are no treaties... we have memorandum of understandings and statutory law which provides for the lawful reporting or income earned by US Entities doing business in England... these types of IRS regulations are necessary to the proper functioning of the internal revenue service and don't mean our government is somehow compromised and part of some international conspiracy too set aside our sovereignty. 

You need to become educated on how foreign income is reported on US Tax Returns... and the formal agreements used to ensure both England and the US receive their portion of the taxes due on income earned overseas (in England) without double taxing the corporation or individual. 

The Federal Reserve Banks have formal relationships defined by statutory law and regulations governing international monetary policy... The exchange rates, methods for settlement of international transactions etc, all require formal agreements.  That doesn't mean the Federal Reserve is part of some UK system of banking... controlled by the English Government.  You simply are way over your head when it comes to your knowledge of international banking and settlements.

English voters are in control of who becomes a member of parliament... the people remove members of parliament, white members of parliament are subject to removal in England, just as white members of the Congress are subject to removal from office in the US... thru elections.

Jewish politicians make all kinds of unofficial statements... some against US policy.  That doesn't mean Israel or that the Jewish people are enemies of the US... wake up, not every jew is pro-American any more than every American is pro-Jewish.

The CFR is a private institution with the right to promote whomever they like to run their organization... we all know that the CFR is pro-Globalism and anti-America policy is often supported by this rogue organization... we can all work to avoid their propaganda and to expose them for what they are... anti-Constitutionalist...

TEA PARTY -> Lois Lerner Case Explodes:
IRS Docs Link McCain’s Office To Tea Party Attacks


Since announcing his brain cancer was terminal, Arizon Sen. John McCain has continued to make headlines, but not due to his medical status. Instead, it has been one controversy after another revolving around him, and now one more had been added to the list.

This one is based in his dislike not for Ted Cruz or Rand Paul, but of the tea party.

McCain has never really endeared himself to conservatives, and he made his feeling public about the tea party movement at a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor in 2015, according to a Yahoo report.

“I think also — I probably shouldn’t say this — but some of (the tea party) appeals to the bad angels of our nature rather than the better angels of our nature,” McCain said.

This attitude ties into the latest scandal swirling around McCain.

One of a number of scandals that plagued President Barack Obama and his administration involved the IRS targeting tea party groups after 2010. It seemed that their tax-exempt status requests were denied or delayed due to intense political partisanship in the agency.

In May 2013, The Washington Post reported that the IRS’s exempt-organizations division director Lois Lerner “let slip” the week prior “that low-level IRS staffers had focused extra scrutiny on conservative groups with words such as ‘tea party’ or ‘patriot’ in their names.”

In addition, “internal reviews have shown that Lerner knew about the targeting in 2011 — but neither Congress nor the public knew until (2013).” Despite this, Lerner was never prosecuted and was allowed to retire with her taxpayer-funded pension intact.

This did not change, even after House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady, a Texas Republican, and Tax Policy Subcommittee Chairman Peter Roskam, an Illinois Republican, wrote a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions. In it, they begged him to reopen a probe into the matter, according to Jay Sekulow, chief council for the American Center for Law and Justice, writing in a commentary for Fox News.

When President Donald Trump was sworn into office, some held out hope that the perceived injustices from Obama’s tenure would somehow be made right. However, in September 2017, Trump’s administration had already preemptively declined to pursue criminal charges against Lerner “based on the available evidence,” according to Fox News.

But more has since been uncovered about the scandal. Government watchdog group Judicial Watch has obtained and released “internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen. John McCain’s former staff director and chief counsel on the Senate Homeland Security Permanent Subcommittee, Henry Kerner, urged top IRS officials, including then-director of exempt organizations Lois Lerner, to “audit so many that it becomes financially ruinous.”

Judicial Watch �dd0e

JW President @TomFitton: Much of what you know about the IRS scandal is thanks to JW... Our new docs show the scandal is bipartisan in nature. A McCain staffer suggested Lois Lerner audit all of the 501(c)(4) groups in a way that'd be financially ruinous.

Meeting notes from April 30, 2013, involving Kerner, Lerner, “and other high-ranking IRS officials” were obtained by JW. With the meeting taking place only 10 days before the IRS scandal exploded into the public view, they are particularly incriminating against Kerner and Lerner:

“Henry Kerner asked how to get to the abuse of organizations claiming section 501 (c)(4) but designed to be primarily political. Lois Lerner said the system works, but not in real time.”

“Henry Kerner noted that these organizations don’t disclose donors. Lois Lerner said that if they don’t meet the requirements, we can come in and revoke, but it doesn’t happen timely.”

“Nan Marks said if the concern is that organizations engaging in this activity don’t disclose donors, then the system doesn’t work. Henry Kerner said that maybe the solution is to audit so many that it is financially ruinous. Nikole noted that we have budget constraints.”

“Elise Bean suggested using the list of organizations that made independent expenditures. Lois Lerner said that it is her job to oversee it all, not just political campaign activity.”

Thus far, there is no evidence that McCain knew about or directed Kerner to take such action. It is plausible that Kerner, knowing of McCain’s dislike of the tea party, opted to be a proactive and loyal staffer by urging the IRS to take action against the groups.

But McCain’s personality does little to keep him far removed from the scandal and tongues are wagging with speculation as to his involvement. Regardless, McCain’s frosty relationship with President Donald Trump has not made the Arizona senator many fans among Trump supporters.

New suspicions about him betraying the tea party won’t help matters at all.


Chelsea Handler Says Fox Doesn’t Work With
Black People, Obviously Doesn’t Watch Network

Humor is supposed to be based on truth. After all, the reason we laugh at a joke or scenario is because it triggers a feeling of recognition about reality, especially if it’s presented in an unexpected way.

It doesn’t look like “comedian” Chelsea Handler has a very firm grasp on truth or reality, however.

After a production error during a Fox News broadcast was called out by users on Twitter, the raunchy and sex-obsessed Handler tried to bash the network … but ended up showing off her ignorance instead.

“Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle,” the comedian and television host posted on Twitter Thursday evening.

That part was true enough: Fox admitted that they made a mistake on a background slide during a tribute to the late soul singer, and accidentally showed a faded photo of LaBelle. The main image still showed Franklin, who passed away on Thursday in Detroit.

Broadcast television is complex, which you would think Handler understands after being involved in TV for many years. Honest mistakes happen on every network. But no: In Handler’s alternate reality, the only explanation for the mistake was racism.

“It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any,” she declared.

Chelsea Handler  @chelseahandler

Fox News honored Aretha Franklin by using a graphic that contained a photo of Patti LaBelle. It’s probably hard for anyone who works at Fox News to tell black people apart because they’ve never worked with any.

Was she trying to be bitter or funny? It was hard to tell, but either way, that statement shows just how isolated the Hollywood left is from reality.

If she really believes that Fox has “never worked with any” black people, maybe she should try an experiment: Actually watch the channel for a minute.

She would probably tune in to the face of Harris Faulkner, the enthusiastic and Emmy-winning host of “Outnumbered,” which airs every single weekday.

Or, maybe she could get a clue from Deneen Borelli, another well-known face of Fox News for nearly a decade. How about the venerable Juan Williams, co-host of “The Five” and a “Fox News Sunday” regular for over 20 years?

Nah. They apparently don’t count, because Handler would rather live in an alternate reality of ignorance than admit she was the one making racial assumptions.

We’re not finished! Moving on to frequent guest contributors to Fox News, how about Candace Owens? Brandon Tatum? Ben Carson? Larry Elder? All of these smart individuals are familiar faces at Fox, and all are — look closely! — African American.

That’s saying nothing of the behind-the-scenes staff at Fox, a good number of whom are of course black. In fact, it’s completely possible the photo mix-up was accidentally made by a black employee. Handler openly assumed the race of the staff members who made the error, while knowing nothing.

Once again, the left has tipped their hand and revealed just how elitist and out of touch they are.

Handler has likely never turned on Fox News in her life, yet she thinks she’s an expert on it. She eagerly diminishes and waves away the contributions of black Americans to one of the most popular news stations in the nation, while lecturing others about race.

This type of attitude implies that only “liberal approved” black voices count. If they don’t parrot a 43-year-old white comedian’s politics, they’re invisible to her.

That arrogant view, and not an honest editing mistake, is perhaps the real outrage here … and it’s exactly why so many black voters are walking away from the left.
