President Trump decision to end DACA was lawful, Justice Department says

Westlake Legal Group dacaprotest President Trump decision to end DACA was lawful, Justice Department says fox news fnc/politics fnc Danielle Wallace article 88976449-8453-5ef5-9e81-77cb25a7bb81

The Justice Department submitted a legal brief to the Supreme Court Monday that stated President Trump acted lawfully when he decided to end the Obama-era immigration program known as DACA in September of 2017, according to a new report.

The Department of Homeland Security, “correctly, and at a minimum reasonably, concluded that DACA is unlawful,” Justice Department lawyers wrote in a brief submitted to the Supreme Court late Monday.

SUPREME COURT TO DECIDE WHETHER TRUMP ADMINISTRATION CAN END DACA PROGRAM

The Supreme Court will begin to hear arguments in November. A ruling is expected in the presidential election year, putting the high court at the center of one of the most politically charged issues of debates. A decision in favor of Trump would allow for the president to deport more than one million young adults residing in the U.S. under DACA protection, the New York Times reported.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, was created under an executive order in 2012. The program gives some illegal immigrants — known as “Dreamers” — who were brought to the United States as children– the opportunity to receive a renewable two-year reprieve from deportation and become eligible for a work permit.

In 2017, the Trump administration announced its plan to phase out the program, but federal courts have ruled that the phase-out could not apply retroactively and that the program should be restarted.

The White House fought back on those decisions, saying the president has broad authority over immigration enforcement policy. Federal appeals courts around the country have rejected efforts by the federal government to move ahead with phasing out the Obama-era program.

DACA proponents have also argued that Trump’s planned termination of the program violates federal law requiring adequate notice-and-comment periods before certain federal rules are changed, as well as other constitutional equal protection and due process guarantees.

A decision from the Supreme Court to end DACA could galvanize young Americans to ensure Trump does not see another four years in the White House, the Times report stated. On the other hand, if the Court chooses to continue the Obama-era program, conservatives could argue Trump needs another four years to fulfill his campaign promises on immigration.

Conan O’Brien vows to negotiate Trump’s Greenland deal, offers up Florida

Westlake Legal Group ContentBroker_contentid-88a63f3254d5493d87de3c571e34b2d6 Conan O'Brien vows to negotiate Trump's Greenland deal, offers up Florida Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/politics-on-late-night fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 215c442e-c56f-519f-b4a8-fafe447fa689

“Conan” host Conan O’Brien is offering his negotiation skills to President Trump after it was reported that the president has expressed serious interest in buying Greenland.

“A lot of people have kind of been making fun of the idea for the past day or so… but not me,” O’Brien told his audience Monday. “You see, I want to give the President Trump the benefit of the doubt. What if we, the United States, did buy Greenland? It might just be a good idea. It seriously might. And as the elder statesman of late-night, what if I negotiated the deal?”

After sparking some laughs, the TBS host doubled down.

WOULD COLBERT INVITE TRUMP ON HIS SHOW AGAIN? ‘THE QUICK ANSWER WOULD BE NO’

“Seriously, what if I handled this historic negotiation?” O’Brien said. “I have as much, if not more, negotiating experience as Trump. I mean c’mon, an 11 o’clock timeslot on TBS, you don’t just get that!”

Despite Denmark insisting that Greenland is “not for sale,” the late-night comedian is convinced otherwise and warned that China will snatch it with “all cash.”

“So alright, Denmark, you want to play hardball? I’m ready to sweeten the deal,” O’Brien said. “We could do a straight trade: Greenland for Florida.”

The “Conan” host then highlighted some perks of being part of the United States, like being “enrolled in the U.S. health care system,” and never being cold by being “American fat.”

He also announced that he was going to make an actual visit to the icy nation as part of his “Conan Without Borders” special.

“Here’s my promise… if I do not make this deal to purchase Greenland, if I do not make this deal, I, Conan O’Brien will never, ever again step foot on American soil,” he joked to this audience, which roared with applause.

Jeffrey Lord: NYT ‘Stalinizing’ America, left wants to re-write American history on race

Westlake Legal Group NYT-exterior Jeffrey Lord: NYT ‘Stalinizing’ America, left wants to re-write American history on race fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox news fnc/politics fnc Danielle Wallace cfe7cac6-e647-59c9-a5a3-49f1a697cdd6 article

Political commentator Jeffrey Lord responded to a leaked transcript from New York Times’ emergency town hall meeting Monday, saying that the newspaper wants to stir the narrative on race in the United States against President Donald Trump and in-favor of pro-Russian views.

“What the New York Times has engaged in is the Stalinizing of American history,” Lord, who worked in the Reagan administration, told Fox News host Sean Hannity Monday evening. “The left wanting to do a total re-write of American history, that we’re founded in racism and it’ll all about race.”

NEW YORK TIMES BLASTED OVER LEAKED TRANSCRIPT OF ANTI-TRUMP COVERAGE ON ‘THE FIVE’

The New York Times is facing backlash after a leaked transcript from a staff town hall meeting Monday revealed the newspaper was grappling with how to write about racism in a way that appeased anti-Trump viewers.

“What I’m saying is that our readers and some of our staff cheer us when we take on Donald Trump, but they jeer at us when we take on Joe Biden,” New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet told his staff in a town hall on Monday.

Baquet addressed backlash on Twitter after the Times summarized President Trump’s address following mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, with the headline “Trump Urges Unity vs. Racism.”

One of the most vocal critics of the headline was Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who wrote: “Let this front page serve as a reminder of how white supremacy is aided by – and often relies upon – the cowardice of mainstream institutions.”

Other users vowed to cancel their subscriptions. The Times changed the headline hours later to “Assailing Hate But Not Guns,” which also drew criticism.

Lord said the New York Times’ 1619 project, which is also mentioned in the leaked transcript, fails to tell the whole story about the Democratic Party’s contribution to upholding segregation and other forms of institutional racism in the United States.

“I’ve read the New York Times pieces, their so-called 1619 project, there isn’t a solitary mention that slavery and segregation were the party of Democrats,” Lord said. Hannity asked Lord where the Democratic Party was in the 1960s as the left failed to back legislation that would have extended voting rights for African Americans.

According to the recording obtained by the Slate, NYT executive editor Dean Baquet described the 1619 project as the “most ambitious examination of the legacy of slavery ever undertaken in newspaper to try to understand the forces that led to the election of Donald Trump.”

Before closing out his segment, Hannity asked Lord to imagine what the reaction would be from the Times if President Trump, instead of Hillary Clinton, had announced his mentor was a former KKK leader. The Clintons have been linked to the late Sen. Robert Byrd of West Virginia who founded a Ku Klux Klan chapter in the 1940s before beginning a career in politics.

Ingraham: Liberals ‘rooting against America’ because they’re ‘furious’ they might lose in 2020

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham took on members of the Democratic Party for what she said was “rooting against America” and disparaging supporters of President Trump, and said the left is largely “furious” they may lose the 2020 election to the New York Republican.

“Rooting against America, referring to millions of voters as ‘deplorables’ or ‘racists’ or bigot-coddlers is not the language of a confident optimistic party,” she said Monday on “The Ingraham Angle.”

“It is the language of people who are furious that they could lose another presidential election,” she said.

Ingraham said Democrats were hoping former Special Counsel Robert Mueller would be a key figure in their attempts to damage the president, as the Russia investigation concluded.

INGRAHAM CALLS OUT DEMS: ‘THEY ARE THROWING KEROSENE ON A FIRE’

“Trump’s reckoning — they were confident — would be delivered by the highly respected prosecutor Bob Mueller. In other words, the 2020 election would be a ‘gimme’ for any Democrat,” she said.

More recently, Democrats have lodged racism claims against the president, she said.

More from media

“The crestfallen Dems decided to go all-in on the race issue. “The Angle” told you this would happen. Using bogus charges of racism, the left has a goal of blunting any momentum the president may have with minority voters in 2020.”

“The president condemned white nationalists in Charlottesville and El Paso,” she added. However, she pointed to three 2020 Democratic hopefuls who have invoked the race issue.

When a CNN anchor asked former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, whether the president is a “white nationalist,” the ex-lawmaker answered in the affirmative.

In another interview, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared it is “time to get white nationalism out of the White House.”

In Ingraham’s third example, South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was asked whether it is a “racist act” to vote for Trump in 2020.

The 37-year-old responded that “at best, it means looking the other way on racism.”

Summing up the clips, Ingraham said some of the commentaries from the left shows Trump supporters are becoming occasional subjects of ridicule.

“The new Democratic playbook requires the relentless demonization of American history, including the founders, and now the American people themselves — at least the ones who support Trump.”

After mock Trump assassination photos at liberal fundraiser, Scalise asks when the left will denounce its violence

House Minority Whip Steve Scalise asked what it would take for liberals to denounce violence against conservatives after a Democratic state senator from Illinois came under fire last weekend over pictures showing his supporters at a fundraising event taking part in a mock assassination of President Trump.

Photos posted by a woman who witnessed the mock assassination Friday night showed supporters of Sen. Martin Sandoval, who represents Illinois’ 11th District — including parts of Chicago — acting out in front of guests, according to WCIA.

HATE SPEECH ALGORITHMS ARE BIASED AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE, RESEARCHERS FIND

“I am glad he took ownership, and said he was wrong,” Scalise said.

A 2017 attack left Scalise gravely wounded on a Virginia baseball field.

The attack by James Hodgkinson, who supported Sen. Bernie Sanders, specifically targeted the Republican House members as they practiced for the Congressional Baseball Game.

Scalise did take issue that the Democratic leadership at the top isn’t denouncing liberal violence.

“You don’t see any of them denouncing it. … You don’t see the left condemning it.”

He said Trump should be left alone to do his job, such as rebuilding the middle class.

He is fighting for the forgotten Americans, the Louisiana Republican said, who want to see problems solved, and people fighting for them, Scalise said.

Susan Sarandon appears to take shot at Warren during Sanders event

Oscar-winning actress and activist Susan Sarandon appeared to take a shot at Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday during a Bernie Sanders 2020 campaign event in Iowa.

“He is not someone who used to be a Republican,” Sarandon told the crowd during her introduction of Sanders, according to Politico reporter Holly Otterbein.

Sarandon, a Sanders supporter, didn’t mention Warren by name, but the Massachusetts senator was a registered Republican in the mid-1990s.

WARREN APOLOGIZES TO NATIVE AMERICANS FOR ANCESTRY CLAIMS: ‘I HAVE MADE MISTAKES’

“I was a Republican because I thought that those were the people who best supported markets,” Warren told Politico in 2011. “I think that is not true anymore.”

Warren and Sanders — two liberal favorites — have been polling toward the top of the crowded Democratic presidential primary field.

One national poll released last week by The Economist/YouGov showed Warren coming in at second with 20%, while Sanders was close behind at 16%. Former Vice President Joe Biden topped that poll with 21% support.

Boothe: Biden supporters should consider why Obama isn’t openly backing him

Former Vice President Joe Biden isn’t receiving the customary support of the president he served under, which should be a red flag to voters, according to Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe.

Former President Barack Obama appeared to support Hillary Clinton over Biden in 2016 race as well, Boothe claimed Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“It wasn’t just reported that in 2020 President Obama tried to get him not to run, but also in 2016 as well,” she said.

“There were reports that President Obama thought that Hillary Clinton would be the more formidable candidate — would be the stronger candidate of the two.”

JESSE WATTERS: ELIZABETH WARREN’S NATIVE AMERICAN APOLOGY RINGS HOLLOW BECAUSE SHE ‘STOLE THEIR IDENTITY’

In that regard, other figures in Obama’s circle, like former aide David Axelrod, have been critical of his 2020 run.

She said those instances should be translated as reason why Biden may not make it through the primary.

More from media

“Why put your faith in a candidate when the people closest to him seem to doubt his ability?” she asked of Democratic voters.

Over the weekend, Biden praised Republicans as “decent people” at a Massachusetts fundraiser while touting his ability to work across the aisle, according to a report.

“There’s an awful lot of really good Republicans out there,” the former vice president told the audience, according to The Hill.

“I get in trouble for saying that with Democrats, but the truth of the matter is, every time we ever got in trouble with our administration, remember who got sent up to Capitol Hill to fix it? Me. Because they know I respect the other team.”

He said congressional Republicans ran because they “care about things,” but are afraid to be at odds with President Trump.

“They’re intimidated right now,” he told the audience, The Hill reported.

A Tennessee man is accused of slashing his boss’ throat with a steak knife on Friday after returning to work from time off to de-stress, according to local reports.

John Herren, 40, walked into his workplace, the civil engineering firm Dale & Associates, in Berry Hill, Tenn., carrying two knives, walked behind his supervisor’s desk allegedly grabbed his head and slashed his throat, The Tennessean reported, citing an affidavit.

The alleged attack occurred at about noon.

The supervisor and Herren both ran out of the office, the newspaper reported. Herren took the knife he allegedly used but dropped a second knife.

Berry Hill Police reportedly recovered the dropped knife.

Doctors treated the supervisor at a nearby hospital for “superficial lacerations on his throat,” the Tennessean reported, adding that emergency medical services noted that the outcome could have been a lot worse since the cut was very close to a main artery.

Roy Dale, who owns Dale & Associates and was not injured, told WKRN-TV that Herren had worked at the civil engineering firm for over a decade as a designer.

The television station reported that Herren recently told his bosses he was feeling stressed and needed some time off.

“John was just expressing to us he was having a difficult time with that and was very stressed with that and really wanted to do something different with the company and we were happy to accommodate him,” the news station reported Dale said.

“But still he was struggling, and he took off and when he came back this happened.”

Herren reportedly was arrested “without incident” a short time after the alleged attack. He has been charged with attempted criminal homicide.

Herren did not have a previous arrest history in the state of Tennessee, WKRN reported, citing the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

NYC condo owner allegedly converted small apartment into 11 tiny units

A New York City condominium owner illegally converted his one-unit apartment into a duplex with 11 cramped sub-units, some of which had ceilings just 4 1/2 feet high, forcing his tenants to crouch or walk on their knees, officials alleged.

Inspectors with the city’s Buildings Department raided the apartment on Manhattan’s Lower East Side Aug. 14 after they got a complaint about the cramped conditions, The New York Post reported. The Henry Street building was listed as having 27 apartments on five floors, according to city records.

Owner Xue Ping Ni reportedly carved up the 634-square-foot unit into 11 units with no windows and an illegal bathroom. He was cited with numerous violations totaling $144,000.

It’s not clear how much he allegedly charged his nine tenants in rent, but residents were moving out of the apartment Friday, The Post reported. The owner didn’t immediately comment.
