Police in Phoenix, Ariz., arrested 16 people Friday night during a protest of planned sweeps by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

Authorities said a group of protesters blocked a downtown street and disrupted light rail traffic outside the local ICE office. KSAZ reported that a small number of people did not clear the roadway and the light rail tracks when they were asked, prompting the arrests.

In all, 14 people were accused of unlawful assembly and obstructing a public thoroughfare, while two were charged with aggravated assault on a police officer.

No injuries were reported and the protesters dispersed around 11:00 p.m.

The Phoenix protest was one of a number of demonstrations ahead of Sunday’s planned immigration operations. Earlier Friday, protesters demonstrating outside an ICE facility in Aurora, Colo. pulled down the American flag and raised the flag of Mexico in its place

On Saturday, several thousand protesters marched through downtown Chicago, many of them carrying  placards with messages including “No kids in cages” and “Abolish ICE.” Some also belted chants critical of Trump.

Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi says the protest was peaceful and that there were no arrests. He says there were an estimated 5,000 protesters at its peak.

Ira Mehlman: Democrats commit political suicide on immigration

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6058615133001_6058616442001-vs Ira Mehlman: Democrats commit political suicide on immigration Ira Mehlman fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc e999aca7-4116-5e9a-a0e0-ec869404578b article

Amidst a border crisis that has morphed into a national security and a humanitarian crisis, leading contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination have all but endorsed open borders.

During the first of the candidate debates, the Democrats expressed broad support for decriminalizing illegal immigration.

The candidates also expressed unanimous opposition to removing any illegal immigrant who is not also a violent felon. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has taken the same position.

ANTI-ICE PROTESTERS PULL DOWN AMERICAN FLAG, RAISE MEXICO FLAG, VANDALIZE ‘BLUE LIVES MATTER’ FLAG

With the possible exception of former Vice President Joe Biden (whose momentary hesitation will no doubt result in another abject apology in the near future), the Democratic presidential hopefuls committed to lavish social benefits for illegal immigrants, including publicly funded health care coverage.

The first of many debates may have delighted the Democratic Party’s most animated supporters, but it is alarming many of the party’s more sober ones.

In the space of just a few days, left-leaning journalists, constitutional scholars, and even President Obama’s Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson penned opinion pieces warning that the party’s increasingly radical stances on immigration pose – for them – a nightmare scenario: Donald Trump taking the oath of office again on Jan. 20, 2021.

One might logically think that the reverse would also be true – that the Republican response to Democrats driving themselves off a cliff would be to help them do just that.

The American public – particularly those who live in swing states and congressional districts that will determine not just control of the White House, but also Congress – is alarmed about what is happening at the border.

Polls consistently show that immigration now tops the list of voter concerns and that there is strong support for securing the border, ending asylum abuse, and ending catch-and-release policies.

Republicans are in control of the Senate, where bills that would do all of those things are teed up and ready to go. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., just needs to schedule a floor debate and a vote – something he has inexplicably refrained from doing.

Getting this legislation over the 60-vote hurdle necessary to bring bills to the floor for a final vote is no easy task in the current hyperpartisan climate in Washington.

But McConnell and the Republicans are in a no-lose situation. If they can peel away a handful of purple state Democrats, they can claim credit for addressing a top-of-the-mind concern for American voters. In essence, they would force their political rivals to make a difficult choice. Do they side with concerns of the vast majority of Americans, or do they side with radicals?

Pelosi rules the House by virtue of some two-dozen members from “purple” districts. Many replaced Republican members by very slim margins.

Do these freshmen Democrats really want to go into the next election having blocked asylum reform and border security, while having increased and improved detention facilities for families and minors?

Do they want to do so with someone at the head of their party’s ticket who calls for decriminalizing illegal immigration and giving everyone who shows up government-funded health insurance?

The humanitarian crisis at the border is real. The volume of illegal border crossers is overwhelming the system and creating conditions that appall Americans across the political spectrum.

Democrats, led by their most radical wing, have offered solutions that have little public support and are setting off alarm bells among thoughtful party stalwarts.

By contrast, Republicans have solutions to the immigration crisis that do enjoy broad public support, and congressional leadership that refuses to play its strong hand.

The ever-worsening immigration crisis dictates that it is time for congressional Republicans to move decisively on sensible border enforcement and asylum reform. Democrats have opened the door for them if they are willing to act on behalf of the American people and common sense.

Florida ‘doomsday prepper’ couple charged with abusing 2 women on farm for years

Florida authorities raided a farm and arrested a “doomsday prepper” couple on physical and sexual abuse charges.

The two female victims say they were abused for years while under the care of Mirko Ceska, 58, and his wife, Regina, 55, the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office said Friday in a news release.

“The females described Mr. and Mrs. Ceska as doomsday preppers who had getaway properties located throughout the United States and food rations and weapons stored in the event of a major calamity,” the news release said. “The females stated they had been trained to raise pigs, raise sheep, grow various fruits and vegetables, sheer sheep, utilize a loom, and sew.”

They stated that if they didn’t smile they would be punished, the news release said.

The investigation began July 1 after the women escaped the Ceskas’ custody three days earlier, according to the news release. Their identities, ages and relationship to the Ceskas was not disclosed.

The search of the farm Friday in Crawfordvile led to the discovery of large quantities of food rations and other survivalist items, the news release said. Detectives also seized dozens of high quality firearms and many cases of ammunition. Some of the firearms were hidden behind fake walls or a staircase.

The women said they endured various punishments, including having their food withheld, physical beatings where they said Mirko Ceska would hit them with a metal rod and sexual episodes where Mirko Cesko forced sex acts upon them, “some with the support of Regina Ceska,” according to the sheriff’s office.

SELF-DRIVING SPACECRAFT MAY SAVE EARTH FROM DOOMSDAY

The Ceskas were quoted in a 2009 Associated Press article about the over-medication of children in the Florida foster care system, the Tallahassee Democrat reported Saturday. The Ceskas said they had adopted 12-year-old twin girls a year earlier.

The Ceskas, who met then-Gov. Charlie Crist, were critical of the foster care system for medicating children in transitional care, the paper reported.

“The foster people that are taking care of these kids, many of them that we have seen don’t want these kids to have too much to do,” Mirko Ceska told the AP, according to the paper. “So they really put them asleep. They really do.”

Mirko Ceska was charged with sexual battery, sexual assault, abuse and neglect. Regina Ceska was charged with two counts of neglect and two counts of failure to report abuse.

Dan Gainor: Media demonize Trump on immigration, embrace Rapinoe for kicking him around

Westlake Legal Group 854081161001_6058370986001_6058329446001-vs Dan Gainor: Media demonize Trump on immigration, embrace Rapinoe for kicking him around fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/sports fox-news/politics fox-news/person/mitch-mcconnell fox-news/person/megan-rapinoe fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/opinion/media fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc Dan Gainor article 190307b4-efd2-58be-b22c-80895cf78c44

Much of the media spent the week continuing to demonize President Trump and federal law enforcement officers for doing their jobs – enforcing our nation’s immigration laws in the face of a massive flood of illegal immigration.

Of course, this is happening only months after both the left and the many in the media called the increase in illegal immigration a “manufactured crisis.”

News coverage of the very real illegal immigration crisis focused on the freak-out over impending Immigrations and Customers Enforcement raids and the hysteria about detaining illegal immigrants.

ANTI-ICE PROTESTERS PULL DOWN AMERICAN FLAG, RAISE MEXICO FLAG, VANDALIZE ‘BLUE LIVES MATTER’ FLAG

“The View” host Joy Behar called the upcoming ICE raids “really reminiscent of Nazi Germany.” The Nazi raids rounded up millions of innocent men, women and children who were murdered in Nazi concentration camps and elsewhere, often after being horribly abused and tortured.

The wild exaggeration of comparing U.S. immigration law enforcement to Nazi genocide set the tone for media coverage.

Broadcast network news shows depicted the immigration raids – scheduled to begin Sunday – as a way of causing “fear,” and even seemed to advise viewers on how to avoid being caught.

ABC’s Chief National Correspondent Matt Gutman hammered that home: “Tonight, those possible ICE raids sowing fear across America.”

NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt referred to the raids as “prompting waves of fear.”

CBS interviewed an immigration attorney who pushed the argument that the raids were “meant to create and further the fear and the panic.”

That generated a pearl-clutching moment from “Meet the Press” host Chuck Todd. He predicted a bleak future for the GOP and Trump because of “the census fight and his gloating about ICE raids.”

Todd added: “How many different ways does the Republican Party want to alienate Hispanics?” As if all Hispanic voters think alike.

MSNBC embraced that argument when “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough climbed off his soapbox and into the pulpit to bash evangelicals who didn’t agree with his open-borders position. “You know and that should be shameful, Mika, to those evangelicals saying they don’t have the responsibility to give a cup of water in Jesus’s name.”

Somehow, Scarborough forgot that America already has millions of illegal immigrants – estimates vary from 11 million to 22 million. That’s a lot of cups of water.

Fellow MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace tried to spark nationwide protests, saying: “Why aren’t we marching on these (detention) facilities?”

Princeton University Professor Eddie Glaude said on MSNBC that “America traffics in cruelty.”

“The View” host Joy Behar called the upcoming ICE raids “really reminiscent of Nazi Germany.” The Nazi raids rounded up millions of innocent men, women and children who were murdered in Nazi concentration camps and elsewhere, often after being horribly abused and tortured.

Rapinoe embraced by media for kicking Trump as well as soccer balls

Americans like a winner, but no one loves a winner more than journalists – if they can use the person to push their narrative. Welcome Megan Rapinoe, star of the winning U.S. team at the Women’s World Cup soccer tournament and world-class Trump hater.

Rapinoe is a leftist who has protested against Trump and knelt for the national anthem. In May, she told Yahoo Sports that her being part of the U.S. team was “a good ‘F-you’” to the Trump administration. People magazine reminded readers that “she said she’d refuse to visit “the f——- White House” if the team won.

With every dust-up with the president, Rapinoe received more media love. The Atlantic’s Franklin Foer said she was “her generation’s Muhammad Ali.” He went on to rave in classic lefty fashion: “She has the chance to repeat as world champion and deliver a devastating blow to the patriarchy.” Just what sports fans want to see. Not soccer, but an attack on The Man.

Particularly one man – President Trump. 

Charlie Warzel summed up the longstanding feud between Rapinoe and Trump in a New York Times piece headlined “How the World Cup Team Beat Trump.”

Journalists were thrilled.  A piece in The Week was headlined: “Megan Rapinoe for president.”

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow giddily embraced the dream of President Rapinoe, telling the soccer star in an interview: “So, you know, I don’t think you’re going to announce that you’re running for president here, but –.”

MSNBC “Deadline: White House” host Nicolle Wallace called Rapinoe a “real-life superhero.”

Rapinoe blasted Trump because his “message is excluding people.” That, before telling people “We have to love more, hate less.” Except, I guess, when it comes to Trump.

That was before Rapinoe dropped the F-bomb again and MSNBC anchor Craig Melvin had to apologize. But within a few minutes, NBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell was praising the “eloquence of Rapinoe.” That’s some —-ing eloquence.

Media embrace Dem challenging Mitch McConnell

In every election cycle, journalists fall madly in love with a Democratic candidate they claim can turn a red state blue.

Wendy Davis and Beto O’Rourke in Texas are two examples. Davis lost a race for governor and O’Rourke lost a U.S. Senate race in the Lone Star State, but is hoping for better luck now as he seeks the Democratic presidential nomination.

Tennessee Democrat Phil Bredesen even got help from Taylor Swift, only to lose by 10 points to now-Sen. Marsha Blackburn.

This time it’s Kentucky and former Marine and losing congressional candidate Amy McGrath. She wants to take on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell next year – and the media have already signed on.

Journalists promoted McGrath’s candidacy and attacked McConnell, timed to her announcement this week.

NBC did a bizarre hit job going back more than 150 years, writing, “McConnell’s great-great-grandfathers owned 14 slaves, bringing reparations issue close to home.” OK – McConnell’s old, but not that old. He was born in 1942 – not 1842. Blaming him for slavery? All the attack brought home was how desperate the media are to aid their candidate.

NBC correspondent Andrea Mitchell dubbed McGrath the “Louisville Slugger.” McGrath was actually born in Ohio, but why mess with a media-created narrative?

Mitchell added that McGrath’s candidacy was “a whole new ball game.” Because when you wield a bat, why not beat your metaphor with it?

MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” leaned in to aid McGrath. First the show ran her whole announcement commercial and then commentator Mike Barnicle urged on the audience, telling McGrath as she sat for a softball interview that “people who saw that commercial are going to want to donate to you. What’s your website?”

Scarborough repeated the address of McGrath’s website three times in three consecutive sentences to make sure viewers could remember it or write it down.

The show devoted 11 minutes to McGrath’s candidacy, which must have seemed like years to viewers.

Detained Iranian tanker will be released if oil isn’t bound for Syria, UK foreign secretary says

An Iranian oil tanker held by British forces near Gibraltar will be released if the United Kingdom is assured the oil will not be heading to Syria, London’s top diplomat said Saturday.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said on Twitter that he had a “constructive call” with his Iranian counterpart Javad Zarif, during which Hunt “reassured him [Zarif] our concern was destination not origin of the oil.”

Hunt added that the “U.K. would facilitate release if we received guarantees that it would not be going to Syria, following due process in Gib [Gibraltar] courts.”

CAR BOMB KILLS 2 NEAR TURKISH-SYRIAN BORDER

The Iranian tanker Grace 1 was captured earlier this month on suspicion of breaking European Union sanctions, according to the BBC. The head of Gibraltar’s government said Friday the tanker was carrying 2.1 million barrels of light crude oil.

Fabian Picardo told the country’s parliament that the ship is suspected of breaching European Union sanctions on Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government and that any nation with a claim to the vessel and its cargo can file a claim in court.

In addition to the tanker’s captain and chief officer arrested Thursday, Gibraltar police said they arrested the two second mates of the Panama-flagged tanker on Friday. The two are in custody and are assisting police with their inquiries, authorities said. All four are Indian citizens.

Tensions between London and Tehran escalated Thursday after the British navy said it had three Iranian paramilitary vessels from disrupting the passage of a British oil tanker through the vital Strait of Hormuz.

BRITIAN WILL BE ‘SLAPPED IN THE FACE’ FOR SEIZURE OF IRANIAN TANKER, CLERIC SAYS.

The captain of HMS Montrose, a British frigate following the BP-owned tanker, was forced to move between the Iranian boats and the commercial vessel, a Ministry of Defense spokesman said. On Friday, the ministry said it was moving up its timetable to relieve the Montrose with the larger HMS Duncan destroyer in the wake of the recent developments.

“This will ensure that the UK alongside international partners can continue to support freedom of navigation for vessels transiting through this vital shipping lane,” the ministry said.

At the same time, Hunt called for “cool heads” to prevail to ensure there is no “unintended escalation.”

“We are being clear to Iran that we are not seeking to escalate this situation,” he said, adding that the British response had been “measured and careful.”

The Associated Press contributed to this report.

Armed man shot, killed by Washington police after throwing incendiary devices at ICE detention center

Police in Washington state say an armed man was shot and killed early Saturday after trying to attack a local Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detention center.

The Seattle Times reported that the unidentified man appeared outside of the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma with a rifle and threw incendiary devices at both the facility and nearby propane tanks.

Officers responded to the incident around 4 a.m. and called out to the man before shots were fired. It was not clear how many shots were fired or whether the man fired at police.

Police spokesman Loretta Cool said the officers weren’t wearing body cameras, but the area is covered by surveillance cameras from the detention center. The four officers involved were placed on administrative leave in accordance with the department’s policy.

The shooting took place hours after a rally in front of the detention center to protest planned mass deportation raids around the country. The Tacoma facility, which is run by the Department of Homeland Security, holds migrants pending deportation proceedings. The detention center has also held immigration-seeking parents separated from their children under President Donald Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy, an effort meant to deter illegal immigration.

GEO Group, which runs the 1,575-bed Northwest Detention Center, in an email to The Associated Press said baseless accusations about how detainees are treated at its facilities “have led to misplaced aggression and a dangerous environment for our employees, whose safety is our top priority. Violence of any kind against our employees and property will not be tolerated. We are thankful for the quick and brave action by the Tacoma Police Department, which prevented innocent lives from being endangered.”

GEO Group said the detention center in Tacoma has modern amenities with air conditioning, recreational activities, a bed for every individual and medical care available at all hours.

Last year, a federal judge ruled that Washington state could pursue its lawsuit seeking to force GEO Group to pay minimum wage for work done by detainees at the detention center.

The planned raids come me at a time of intense scrutiny surrounding ICE and the treatment of migrants at detention centers. The administration’s child separation policy was the subject of a contentious Congressional hearing Friday, during which former ICE director Tom Homan vehemently defended law enforcement amid criticism from Democratic politicians.

“As a 34-year veteran of law enforcement, it is shocking, shocking to see constant attacks against those that leave the safety and security of their homes every day, put on a Kevlar vest and put a gun on their hip and risk their own safety to defend this nation,” he said, at times appearing to get choked up as he defended his former colleagues.

While President Trump and others have defended immigration authorities, some Democrats have called to either restrict federal funding for ICE or abolish the agency outright.

Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., for example, said on Thursday that she and her colleagues still supported defunding ICE. She and other freshmen, like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., tried blocking funding for ICE and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in June, accusing authorities of “killing innocent children.”

Ed Henry calls in to give update on liver transplant recovery: ‘We’ve succeeded in victory’

Fox News Chief National Correspondent Ed Henry called into “Fox & Friends” on Saturday to give viewers an update on his and his sister’s recovery from a liver transplant the two underwent.

Henry said that while he still had a long road ahead for recovery, his vitals were strong and he was feeling healthy.

“Still got some aches and pains but it’s really not a big deal because we’ve succeeded in victory,” he said.

In July, Henry discussed his heartfelt decision to donate part of his liver to his sister who has struggled with liver problems connected to her and Ed’s family history.

“I am determined to do whatever I can to give my sister the greatest gift of all, which quite simply is life,” he said, noting that his sister Colleen’s health had become a lot worse.

Henry said that once the surgeon put part of his liver in his sister on Tuesday, it “immediately started working.”

He initially wasn’t sure whether he should get out of bed, saying that he felt dizzy after stood up.

He started to choke up recalling how medical personnel requested that he get out of his bed to visit his sister. “I got up and went for a walk and we toasted — since we can’t have alcohol, we had apple juice.” Colleen, he said, had already gotten some her color back.

Henry added that he hoped to leave the hospital within days, although his sister had a much longer road ahead of her.

“The prayers that we’re feeling … I can’t thank everyone personally, I want to thank everybody now. You’ve been amazing. I totally underestimated the outpouring,” he said, noting the massive amount of support he received from viewers.
