    “Mexican president hints at migration concessions to defuse U.S. trade spat

    Mexico’s president on Saturday hinted his country could tighten migration controls to defuse U.S. President Donald Trump’s threat to impose tariffs on Mexican goods, and said he expected “good results” from talks planned in Washington next week.

    Trump says he will apply the tariffs on June 10 if Mexico does not halt the flow of illegal immigration, largely from Central America, across the U.S.-Mexican border.”

    And as expected, most of the so-called asylum seekers are blowing off their hearings after neing released.

    https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2019/05/30/nearly-nine-in-ten-illegal-aliens-recently-released-into-u-s-not-showing-up-to-court-hearings/

    “Nearly 9-in-10 illegal aliens who have been recently released into the interior of the United States while they await their asylum hearings are not showing up to their court dates, according to a federal pilot program.
    For almost half a year, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has ramped up its catch and release of border crossers and illegal aliens, specifically those arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border with children.

    Since December 21, 2018, DHS has released at least 190,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the United States. Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan told Congress this month that those foreign nationals are eventually given work permits that allow them to take U.S. jobs while awaiting their asylum hearings.

    In testimony before Congress this month, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials said that the agency had recently conducted a pilot program with the Department of Justice (DOJ) to test how many recent illegal aliens would show up to their asylum hearings after being released into the U.S.

    The results, an ICE official told Congress, were that about 87 percent of illegal aliens, or almost 9-in-10, recently released by DHS into the U.S. did not show up to their asylum hearings. With illegal aliens not showing up to their scheduled hearings, the ICE official said, the agency is then forced to grapple with attempting to locate and deport each illegal alien, an almost impossible task that strains federal resources.”

  3. And despite the lies of the open borders crowd saying otherwise, citizenship applaication approvals are at a 5 year high.

    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/may/31/dhs-says-citizenship-approvals-rose-2018/

    “Homeland Security reached a five-year high in approvals of citizenship applications last year, and swore in more people as naturalized citizens as well, according to the new statistical report released Friday night.

    Those numbers contradict the criticisms of congressional Democrats who had complained about backlogs building at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Homeland Security branch that handles legal immigration.

    The new report also suggests that far from a crackdown, the government is processing more asylum-seeker petitions than any of the last four years. That included a 61 percent increase from 2017 to 2018 in affirmative asylum applications — though refugee interviews are down from more than 1250,000 in 2016, the last year under President Barack Obama, to just 26,400 in fiscal year 2018 under President Trump.”

    Here’s another unaddressed issue creating problems. The Democrats and open border RINO’s prevent serious enforcement because their not doing anything to address the crisis. Enforcement like this suffers when all resources are at the border trying to maintain control.

    https://dailycaller.com/2019/05/31/companies-illegal-immigrants-hiring/

    “While the Trump administration has reportedly considered mandating a nationwide program, such as E-Verify, that checks whether employees are allowed to work in the U.S., no such proposal has been implemented yet. Only a few states have required employers to use E-Verify, and many immigration hawks believe the program should be more widely used.

    “U.S. employers are expected to comply with the federal ban on employing illegal aliens. It has been well established that a primary factor motivating illegal immigration is the possibility of landing a job in the U.S.,” Matthew Tragesser, spokesperson for the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), stated to The Daily Caller News Foundation on Friday. “Mandating E-Verify, a free, online program that verifies the work authorization of employees, would certainly help employers from hiring illegal aliens.”

    FAIR’s comments closely echo those in the Trump administration. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan and others in the Trump administration say the department, understaffed and underfunded, needs additional money from Congress in order to deal with the record number immigrants.

    “ICE’s worksite enforcement strategy aims to curb employers from hiring illegal aliens, but the reality is the agency is stretched to capacity and requires more individuals and funding to fully carry out its mission. Despite having national oversight, ICE is smaller than the NYPD, revealing the challenge of prosecuting employers across the nation,” Tragesser continued.”

    “TOP HOUSE REPUBLICAN POINTS TO ‘SEVERAL INDICATIONS’ PETER STRZOK WAS FBI LEAKER”

    “A top House Republican is asking the Justice Department’s inspector general whether Peter Strzok is the former FBI official accused of leaking sensitive materials to the press and accepting gifts from a reporter.

    Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, the ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, sent a letter Thursday to Michael Horowitz, the Justice Department inspector general (IG), inquiring about the identity of a former FBI deputy assistant director (DAD) who was investigated for unauthorized contacts with the press.

    Collins said the description of the official in a summary of the IG investigation matches up with Strzok, who was fired from the FBI on Aug. 13, 2018, for sending anti-Trump text messages.

    “While the DAD is not named in the Summary, there are several indications the DAD in question is former FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok,” Collins said, noting Strzok had been promoted to the position of deputy assistant director in the FBI’s Espionage Section in September 2016.

    The IG found the FBI official accepted a $225 ticket from a reporter to a media-sponsored event. The official also had “dozens” of unauthorized contacts with the media, and provided law enforcement sensitive information to reporters on “multiple” occasions.”

    “New Book Documents Ties Between BDS Campaign and Terror Groups

    Think BDS is about “pressuring” Israel to give Palestinians their rights? Here’s more proof that it’s about destroying Israel.”

    The Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs just released an electronic “book,” documenting the ties between the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) campaign and Palestinian terror groups.

    The book, written by Dan Diker and Adam Shay lays out the connection between Palestinian Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel (PACBI)—effectively the clearinghouse in the United States for all BDS activity—and BDS National Committee (BNC), based in the West Bank, and comprised of members groups that have been designated as terrorist groups by the U.S.

    The report asserts that BNC is “a coalition that includes the umbrella terror group ‘PNIF’ (Palestinian National and Islamic Forces), which is comprised of EU-and U.S.-designated terror groups Islamic Jihad, Hamas, Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), amongst others.””

  8. Once again Democrats colluding with foreigners and their money against the interests of American voters.

    https://freebeacon.com/politics/soros-wallace-help-bankroll-dark-money-fund-aimed-at-midwestern-voters/

    “Liberal billionaires George Soros and Scott Wallace are helping bankroll a new fund hosted by an intricate dark money organization and focused on helping Democrats make inroads with midwestern voters for the 2020 elections.

    The deep-pocketed donors moved the money from the Open Society Foundations, Soros’s foundation, and the Wallace Global Fund, Wallace’s foundation, to the newly launched Heartland Fund, a collaborative effort focused on building “power across the divides of the American heartland” as overall Democratic efforts have veered towards the region.

    The Heartland Fund recently disbursed $500,000 in its first round of grants to nine left-wing groups and will begin its efforts with organizing and issue advocacy. The initiative is housed at the Windward Fund, which falls under the auspices of Arabella Advisors, a major dark money “fiscal sponsor” network founded by Eric Kessler, a former Bill Clinton appointee.”

    ——————–

    “Arabella, which also contains the Sixteen Thirty Fund and New Venture Fund, acts as a “fiscal sponsor” for liberal groups and as a pass-through entity for donors. This arrangement makes it virtually impossible to trace donations to groups that are “sponsored” by Arabella. Individuals who contribute to a certain group or initiative at Arabella do not have to mark their donations as going to that group, but rather can make it out to the arm at Arabella that hosts the group, such as the Windward Fund, Sixteen Thirty Fund, or New Venture Fund. Those funds then disburse the donations to the intended groups.

    Arabella has facilitated more than $1.6 billion in stealth contributions from donors to liberal groups in recent years.

    Soros and Wallace, who unsuccessfully ran for Congress in Pennsylvania’s toss-up 1st district during the 2018 elections, are both members of the Democracy Alliance, the left’s most powerful dark money donor network. Democracy Alliance members have pushed $1.83 billion into progressive infrastructure since its inception but have, at least temporarily, shifted their focus to state-based initiatives, including targeting rural areas. The alliance is planning to spend at least $275 million for the 2020 elections, confidential memos on its upcoming efforts show.

    The Heartland Fund is not alone in renewed Democratic attempts to target the Midwest following Hillary Clinton’s 2016 blunder in the region, which included neglecting Wisconsin entirely.”
