Rick Scott Calls It Like He Sees It on Why Dems Are Fighting POTUS on Border Crisis: ‘They Hate Trump’

Freshman Sen. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) is blatantly expressing the reason as to why he thinks congressional Democrats push back against President Donald Trump when it comes to addressing the immigration situation at the U.S.-Mexico border. On "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday, the Republican senator discussed the crisis at the southern border, which has pressed both sides recently since the huge spike of immigrant apprehensions by law enforcement at the border. Scott, though, claimed the reason Democrats continue to push back on Trump"s immigration stance is because of the 2020 presidential e

Arizona City Declares State of Emergency After Flood of Migrants Overwhelms City’s Resources

An immigration policy house of cards is beginning to fall apart as over-capacity detention facilities force the release of migrants into U.S. cities that are underprepared for their arrival, including the border city of Yuma, Arizona . On Tuesday, Yuma declared a state of emergency to deal with the flood of illegal immigrants that continue to arrive in their city. As IJR previously reported, detention centers for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) have been hitting capacity as Border Patrol apprehends thousands of illegal immigrants per day. With nowhere to detain the migrants, Bor

Trump Attorney General’s Ruling Expands Indefinite Detention for Asylum Seekers

The U.S. Attorney General on Tuesday struck down a decision that had allowed some asylum seekers to ask for bond in front of an immigration judge, in a ruling that expands indefinite detention for some migrants who must wait months or years for their cases to be heard. The first immigration court ruling from President Donald Trump"s newly appointed Attorney General William Barr is in keeping with the administration"s moves to clamp down on the asylum process as tens of thousands of mostly Central Americans cross into the United States asking for refuge. U.S. immigration courts are oversee

Opening Tombs and Resurrecting Lives

Easter is about opening tombs and resurrecting lives.  Today’s tombs include the Trump administration’s walls and bans and lies that confine people, threaten their safety, and block their aspirations and fulfillment.  Thus, in this life, Easter is celebrated whenever people, fleeing such oppression, are offered the safety of sanctuary.  Here, people of faith not only worship a god of justice in their holy place; they do the work of justice in that very holy place itself. In the 1980s, The Community Church of Boston (CCB), where I was minister, was one of over 500 churches in the U.S. that pro

Was Trump’s presidency worth it if it leads to the election of Bernie Sanders?

A provocative what-if - actually, two provocative what-ifs - from Jonathan Last . Obama voters: If you could go back to 2012, knowing what you know now, would you still vote for Obama? Because we now know that the timeline created by Obama’s 2012 election meant handing unified control of government to a Republican party with Donald Trump as president. So net-net, would you rather have had Mitt Romney as president and the Republican party kept in a moderate place? Or would you still take an extra four years of Obama, even though it means getting Trump? Trump voters: If Bernie Sande

Homeless and hypocrisy in sanctuary cities

No one can accuse Donald Trump of not being able to grab attention. He lobbed his latest political hand grenade, announcing that he is considering shipping off illegals who have been arriving in droves at the U.S.-Mexico border to sanctuary cities. These are municipalities with ordinances directing local authorizes to not cooperate with federal immigration enforcement being carried out by Department of Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. States, cities and localities that have assumed sanctuary status are invariably Democratic and liberal strongholds. Washington Gov.

2 ridiculous Democratic ideas

There"s a push to change laws to permit both criminals serving time and ex-criminals the right to vote. Guess which party is pushing the most for these legal changes. If you guessed that it was the Democrats, go to the head of the class. Bernie Sanders says states should allow felons to vote from behind bars. Elizabeth Warren doesn"t go that far but believes felons should have the right to vote. Democrats want the criminal class to have voting rights restored because they could become a significant part of the Democratic base. These are America"s murderers, rapists, burglars, child molesters

Stop Making the BDS Movement About Free Speech

Defenders of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel like to claim that efforts to oppose the virulent campaign stifle their right to free speech. This talking point—that supporting the BDS movement is a legitimate expression of free speech, and those who seek legal steps against it are infringing on a fundamental right—has become all too common, especially on the political left. Anti-Israel activists use this argument, as do Democrats in Congress to assail bills that would combat the BDS movement. Michelle Goldberg makes the same case in her latest column i
