DHS’ Kelly Warns Lawmakers DACA Might Not Be Around For Much Longer
|| Daily Caller
“A potential lawsuit from Republican state attorneys general might force the Trump administration to enact a campaign trail promise.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Republican attorneys general in nine other states sent a letter to U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions that said that they will sue the federal government if it does not begin to phase out the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
The DACA program, which was started by former President Obama, protects around 790,000 illegal immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as minors. Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Wednesday that he can’t assure them that the administration would prevail over this legal challenge.
DHS spokesman David Lapan told The Washington Post, “This is what he’s being told by different attorneys, that if it goes to court it might not survive.”
President Trump said on the campaign trail that he would “immediately terminate” the DACA program that was started through an executive order. He has reneged on this promise and an estimated 98,000 illegal immigrants have received protection from deportation and work permits during the first few months of Trump’s tenure in office.
However, with this lawsuit looming Trump’s promise seems poised to be implemented.
“Jeff Sessions is going to say, ‘Deport them,’” Democratic Illinois Rep. Luis Gutierrez told the Post. “If you’re going to count on Jeff Sessions to save DACA, then DACA is ended.”

CIA Defends the Muslim Brotherhood as Western Intel Agencies Warn of Dangers, Links to Terror
|| PJ Media
“As the CIA continues to defend their investment in the Muslim Brotherhood to bring “moderate Islamist democracy” to the Middle East, much of the Middle East and our European allies are moving against the group.
I noted here at PJ Media last month that many of America’s Arab allies (Egypt, UAE, Bahrain, Jordan, Saudi Arabia), as well as Israel, had moved well ahead of the U.S. in addressing the group’s toxic influence:
In fact, the Muslim Brotherhood is one of the central issues in the current Qatar crisis, where these Arab nations are taking active measures against Qatar for its support of the the Brotherhood:
Just last week the foreign minister of Bahrain, whose legislature includes representatives from the Muslim Brotherhood, said that the group is a terrorist organizations and its sympathizers must be prosecuted:
Back in February, I reported that the CIA and the National Intelligence Council (NIC) provided the funds to support Nixon Center researchers Robert Leiken and Steven Brooke to create the “moderate Muslim Brotherhood” narrative during the Bush administration. That became the basis for their Foreign Affairs article of that same title:
Yet across Europe, intelligence agencies are warning about the group’s operations in their respective countries — and some are taking action.
Here’s a rundown of the actions being taken by our European allies and our Arab allies against the Muslim Brotherhood….”

Kamala Harris Vows to Block Trump Border Wall: ‘Waste of Money’
“On Wednesday, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) said she will try to block funding for President Donald Trump’s border wall because it is a “waste of money.”
The House Appropriations Committee allocated $1.6 billion to fund the wall this week, and House Freedom Caucus chairman Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) told Breitbart News this week that the next spending bill must fund Trump’s border wall if Congress wants to avoid a government shutdown.
“There is nothing more critical that has to be funded than funding the border wall for two reasons,” Meadows said. “One is it is a commitment that the president made to the American people and one that he intends on keeping, but the second part of that is for our national security we must secure our borders. And the American people will accept no less.”
It is worth noting that in 2015, an illegal immigrant murdered Kate Steinle in Harris’ sanctuary city of San Francisco while Harris, the former San Francisco district attorney, was California’s attorney general. The illegal immigrant murderer told authorities that he specifally came to San Francisco because he knew it was a sanctuary city. Harris, after reportedly initially tweeting about soccer, reacted to Steinle’s tragic death by pushing for comprehensive amnesty legislation.”
