Deported illegal immigrant whose spouse is a fallen US soldier allowed reentry into US: report

An illegal immigrant whose wife – a U.S. soldier – died while serving in Afghanistan, was allowed re-entry into the U.S. on Monday after immigration officials deported him from his Arizona home last week, according to a report.

Jose Gonzalez Carranza, who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally in 2004, was arrested on April 8 and deported two days later, the Arizona Republic reported, citing his attorney Ezequiel Hernandez.

Carranza’s wife, Army Pfc. Barbara Vievra, died in 2010 during an attack by insurgents in Afghanistan.  Gonzalez was subsequently awarded a “parole in place,” which meant he could stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation despite being in the country illegally, his lawyer said.

Last December, a judge ordered Gonzalez deported for reportedly failing to attend a court hearing. Hernandez claimed Carranza was not aware of the court hearing until his arrest last week.

After a report by the Arizona Republic, Customs and Border Protection agents let Gonzales reenter the U.S. Hernandez said he was working out the terms with ICE officials and has filed a motion to reopen the deportation case, the Arizona Republic reported.

The office of Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., told the Arizona Republic it had spoken with Hernandez and will “assist the Carranza family in the process.”

NRA sues its main ad agency for allegedly withholding billing information

The National Rifle Association filed a lawsuit Friday in Virgina against Ackerman McQueen, the Oklahoma-based ad agency that runs NRATV, accusing the contractor of withholding billing statements and alleging an inappropriate financial relationship between the NRA’s president and the advertising firm

ANDREW CUOMO USING BANKS TO TARGET NRA, FACES MAJOR LEGAL TEST

Ackerman McQueen was first contracted by the NRA in the 1980s. In 2016, the ad agency launched NRATV, which has been “perceived by the public as the voice of the N.R.A.,” according to the lawsuit. The NRA complaint alleges that the ad agency failed to provide adequate information over how Ackerman McQueen spent about $40 million paid by the NRA in 2017.

The lawsuit states that Ackerman McQueen only partially complied or “badly ignored” requests for backing paperwork on bills to the NRA, despite being contractually obligated to share these financial records. The complaint also claims Ackerman McQueen failed to reveal information regarding a separate contract with NRA President Oliver North.

North, who took over as president of the gun rights organization in 2018, allegedly had a contract to host a web series for Ackerman McQueen, The New York Times reported. The NRA claims the ad firm refused to hand over details regarding the contract for six months and raised questions over whether the messaging of the NRA has veered away from solely gun rights.

“This flagrant misrepresentation, along with other false claims, serve as the foundation of malicious intent exemplified by this lawsuit,” Ackerman McQueen said in a statement.

Ackerman McQueen said the NRA’s outside attorney William Brewer has a conflict of interest in this case because he is both the son-in-law of Angus McQueen and the brother-in-law of Revan McQueen, who are both executives at the ad firm.

Ackerman McQueen said in a statement Monday that an NRA forensic auditing firm received every piece of information it requested during a three-week review.

“This flagrant misrepresentation, along with other false claims, serve as the foundation of malicious intent exemplified by this lawsuit,” Ackerman McQueen’s statement says.

Australia’s prime minister says hurdles remain to repatriating three orphaned Australian children of a convicted terrorist from a Syrian refugee camp and national security interests must come first.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison said Tuesday that Australia is working with the Red Cross to repatriate three children and two grandchildren of slain Islamic State group fighter Khaled Sharrouf from the camp in northeastern Syria.

Morrison is campaigning for his conservative coalition to be re-elected for a third three-year term on May 18. He argues that his government is stronger on national security and border protection than the center-left opposition Labor Party.

Opposition leader Bill Shorten says the offspring of the Sydney-born terrorist should not become an election issue.

Pakistani authorities say a raid by security forces on a militant hideout in the northwestern city of Peshawar triggered a 15-hour shootout in which a police officer and at least five suspected militants were killed.

Shaukat Yousafzai, a government spokesman in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, said police and commandos surrounded a home in the city on Monday night, acting on intelligence about planned attacks.

He says the suspects were asked to surrender but instead, they opened fire on the security forces. Police say the suspects also threw grenades, which killed an officer.

The operation is ongoing and the security forces are trying to get into the basement of the house, where one or two more suspects might be hiding.

Peshawar is the provincial capital in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, which borders Afghanistan.

Former White House Director of Communications Anthony Scaramucci says Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., is losing steam in New York while appearing on “Hannity” Monday.

Scaramucci said New Yorkers are getting tiring of Ocasio-Cortez following her role in Amazon pulling their headquarters from Queens, and that she will be challenged during the next election.

“They’ll find somebody to challenge her in that district… somebody more moderate I think will take her lights out. I don’t know, she destroyed herself with this whole Amazon thing,” Scaramucci said.

Speaking with CBS News’ Lesley Stahl on “60 Minutes” Sunday, Pelosi  downplayed Ocasio-Cortez’s role in the Democratic Party.

“You have these wings, AOC and her group on one side,” Stahl told Pelosi.

“That’s like five people,” the speaker responded.

Scaramucci said New Yorkers are “tired” of the congresswoman.

“So, she’s colorful she’s got some interesting ways to attract attention to herself but I think I think New York’s getting tired of it,” Scaramucci told host Sean Hannity.

Fox News’s Nicole Darrah contributed to this report.

AP PHOTOS: Teen gunmen unleashed terror, chaos at Columbine

On April 20, 1999, two teenage gunmen dressed in black trench coats went on a killing rampage at Columbine High School in suburban Denver.

They shot and killed 12 classmates and a teacher and wounded two dozen others in what was then the United States’ deadliest school shooting. The boys then took their own lives.

The shooting shocked the country as it played out on TV news shows from coast to coast. Images from the scene showed terrified students fleeing the school , SWAT officers waiting to enter and an injured boy trying to escape through a window.

Pakistan’s minority Shite Muslims have ended their days-long sit-in after successful talks with the government, which promised more steps to protect them in the southwestern city of Quetta following a suicide bombing there last week.

Members of the Hazara community ended their protest before dawn Tuesday.

Hundreds of Shiites began their protest Friday after the suicide bombing at an open-air market killed 20 people, including Shiites.

The bombing was claimed by Islamic State group, which views Shiites as apostates deserving of death.

Quetta is the capital of Baluchistan province, which also is the scene of a low-level insurgency by separatists demanding more autonomy and a greater share in the region’s natural resources such as gas and oil.

Pelosi appears to take new jab at Ocasio-Cortez, says ‘a glass of water’ with a ‘D’ could win their districts

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., on Monday made a point to heap more praise on Democrats who flipped Republican seats in the 2018 midterms and downplayed representatives like herself and freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who carried districts where a “glass of water” with a “D” next to it could win.

“When we won this election, it wasn’t in districts like mine or Alexandria’s,” Pelosi said. “[S]he’s a wonderful member of Congress as I think all of our colleagues will attest. But those are districts that are solidly Democratic.”

To drive the point home she picked up a water glass next to her and said: “This glass of water would win with a ‘D’ next to its name in those districts.”

Pelosi, who is traveling in Europe with a congressional delegation this week, made the comments during an appearance before the London School of Economics and Political Science.

In the heart of Paris, watching a symbol of France burn

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-573d75e2ab27450d9853cfe0582712ae In the heart of Paris, watching a symbol of France burn LORI HINNANT fox-news/world/world-regions/europe fox-news/world fnc/world fnc Associated Press article 0838a423-9b22-5a7f-9158-54d32aff00a3

I started running toward the source of the yellow smoke without knowing what it was — only that it was coming from the island in the middle of the Seine at the heart of so much of Paris’ history. Past bookshops and cafes, I rounded the corner to see flames creeping across the rooftop of Notre Dame Cathedral. I caught my breath and rubbed my stinging eyes.

At that point, the roads leading to the cathedral, about 400 meters (yards) away were still open and the fire looked like it might just end up becoming another scar on a building that had survived so much already.

A few dozen pedestrians gathered around at first, watching the flames lick their way toward the nave. Soon it was hundreds of people, sobered by the smoke belching from one of the world’s most recognizable symbols of France.

The nearly 900-year-old cathedral has endured the French Revolution, the Nazi occupation and countless bouts of unrest before and since. Now, its ashes were falling from the sky in gritty flecks damped by fire hoses that appeared increasingly futile as new sections of the building caught fire.

Panicked by the burgeoning crowd, police officers shouted hoarsely for bystanders to back away and leave room for the dozens of fire trucks that wailed toward us. But the tourist season is upon Paris, and among the hundreds murmuring around me I heard seven or eight familiar languages and others, less familiar. None could take their eyes off the torched cathedral.

On the metro, the conductor warned that the station ‘Cite’ was closed by police order.

“They can’t even bear to say it’s Notre Dame,” an old man mumbled as he crossed the platform.

For Paris schoolchildren, Notre Dame is a required outing. A class in my daughter’s school took the metro to Cite on Monday afternoon, doubtless grumbling and fidgeting the entire way. They were almost certainly among the last for years to come to pierce the cathedral’s grand dimness, to crane their necks at the rose windows and contemplate whether to light a candle.

For tourists, it’s as unmissable as the Eiffel Tower and a lot easier to get in. But few are the visitors who can boast of climbing the 380 steps to the top, with the gargoyles perched so close you can almost touch their grimaces and imagine yourself a modern-day Quasimodo, Victor Hugo’s hunchback who felt protected by the monsters he resembled. And only a handful ever visit the loft of the pipe organ and its cramped antechamber.

For many living in Paris, Notre Dame is a lovely part of the view that in the rush of day-to-day errands can easily go unnoticed. It is also the backdrop of the city’s inner workings. Its wide plaza is where many go after standing in line for their residency cards or filing a police report at the prefecture. The benign shadow of its towers falls over us as we deliver paperwork to the courthouse and escape for fresh air.

Now, the smell of charred wood and stone reaches to the city’s edge.

“On the face of this aged queen of our cathedrals, by the side of a wrinkle, one always finds a scar,” Hugo wrote in his paean to the edifice.

Those of us who witnessed Monday’s fire shake the ashes of Paris history from our hair and clothes and wonder how deep the wound will cut this time.
