Trump administration announces major crackdown on asylum seekers

Westlake Legal Group AP19182007508074 Trump administration announces major crackdown on asylum seekers Ronn Blitzer Judson Berger fox-news/us/immigration fox news fnc/politics fnc article 87f192ca-9c02-567b-be88-b5af41ce1dab

The Trump administration on Monday announced a sweeping new policy tightening restrictions for asylum seekers, in a move that could drastically reduce the number of migrants eligible to enter the United States in this way.

The new rule, published in the Federal Register, would require most migrants entering through America’s southern border to first seek asylum in one of the countries they traversed – whether in Mexico, in Central America, or elsewhere on their journey. In most cases, only if that application is denied would they then be able to seek asylum in the United States.

LINDSEY GRAHAM CLAIMS BORDER FRAUD SO PREVALENT ‘A TERRORIST COULD EASILY GET IN’

“While the recent supplemental funding was absolutely vital to helping confront the crisis, the truth is that it will not be enough without targeted changes to the legal framework of our immigration system,” Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan said in a statement. “Ultimately, today’s action will reduce the overwhelming burdens on our domestic system caused by asylum-seekers failing to seek urgent protection in the first available country, economic migrants lacking a legitimate fear of persecution, and the transnational criminal organizations, traffickers, and smugglers exploiting our system for profits.”

Sure to ignite a new firestorm over the administration’s immigration approach, the new policy follows the Trump administration’s Migrant Protection Protocols, commonly referred to as the “remain in Mexico” policy. Under that policy, asylum seekers were often told to go back to Mexico to await hearings, rather than be allowed to remain in the U.S.

Democrats railed against that policy, with 2020 hopeful Beto O’Rourke calling it “inhumane.”

The latest change is meant to crack down on asylum seekers coming to the U.S. more for economic reasons than to escape persecution in their home countries. The new policy does include a couple other exceptions, mainly for certain victims of human trafficking.

Reducing the number of asylum seekers would ease the burden on federal agencies currently overwhelmed by the number of people looking to enter the United States. Children and adults crossing illegally are often separated, with the children placed in detention facilities that are lacking in resources, resulting in outcries against the administration’s current practices.

SEN. TED CRUZ: TO SECURE OUR BORDER, TAKE THESE IMPORTANT AND EFFECTIVE ACTIONS

“This Rule is a lawful exercise of authority provided by Congress to restrict eligibility for asylum,” Attorney General Bill Barr said in a statement. “The United States is a generous country but is being completely overwhelmed by the burdens associated with apprehending and processing hundreds of thousands of aliens along the southern border. This Rule will decrease forum shopping by economic migrants and those who seek to exploit our asylum system to obtain entry to the United States—while ensuring that no one is removed from the United States who is more likely than not to be tortured or persecuted on account of a protected ground.”

Sadie Roberts-Joseph, founder of African American history museum found dead in trunk, set for autopsy

Louisiana cops hunting the killer of an African American history museum founder — who was discovered last week in a car trunk — planned an autopsy Monday in the “heinous” murder, as friends and lawmakers eulogized the civil rights activist as “a mother of the community.”

Sadie Roberts-Joseph was discovered in a vehicle parked just three miles from where she lived in Baton Rouge, where she founded and served as curator of the Baton Rouge African American Museum, which opened in 2001.

Investigators have been tight-lipped about potential suspects or a possible motive, but two city politicians close to Roberts-Joseph — Baton Rouge Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome and Louisiana Rep. C. Denise Marcelle — confirmed her murder in separate social media posts.

FOUNDER OF LOUISIANA AFRICAN-AMERICAN HISTORY MUSEUM FOUND DEAD IN CAR TRUNK: POLICE

Broome wrote on Instagram on Sunday she learned of the death “of a dear friend and a mother of the community” just as now-tropical depression Barry was bearing down on Louisiana.

Describing Roberts-Joseph’s death as “such shocking news,” Broome announced a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone connected to Roberts-Joseph’s death.

HUMAN REMAINS FOUND ON KENTUCKY PROPERTY IDENTIFIED AS MISSING MOM SAVANNAH SPURLOCK, POLICE ANNOUNCE

On Friday, Marcelle posted to Facebook that Roberts-Joseph “was found murdered.”

“This woman was amazing and loved her history. She never bothered anyone, just wanted to expand her African American Museum downtown, where she continually hosted the Juneteenth Celebration yearly,” she wrote.

The website of the city’s visitor bureau says the museum Roberts-Joseph founded features African art, exhibits on growing cotton and black inventors as well as a 1953 bus from the period of civil rights boycotts in Baton Rouge.

The Baton Rouge Police Department called the 75-year-old “a tireless advocate of peace in the community” and a “treasure” who will be missed.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the department at 225-389-4869.

Ryan Leaf joins ESPN as college football analyst

Ryan Leaf, the former Washington State quarterback and No. 2 NFL Draft pick whose career was plagued by drug addiction and who served time in prison, joined ESPN as a college football analyst.

Leaf, 43, will call games alongside play-by-play announcer Clay Matvick, according to ESPN. His games will be televised on ESPN2 and ESPU. He worked for the Pac-12 Network last season and co-hosted a show on SiriusXM’s Pac-12 station.

“Ryan has experienced the highs and lows in the game of football, putting him in a position to relate to a wide range of situations players can find themselves in,” Lee Fitting, ESPN’s senior vice president of production, said in a statement Sunday. “He will be able to rely on those experiences — including an unbelievable college career where he was an All-American and Heisman Trophy finalist — in his analysis, making him a tremendous asset for our team.”

Leaf was an All-American at Washington State and led the Cougars to a Rose Bowl during the 1997 season. He also finished third in Heisman Trophy voting that year.

The San Diego Chargers selected Leaf with the No. 2 pick of the 1998 Draft. However, he would only spend two seasons with the Chargers. His time with the Chargers would be overshadowed because of poor play, locker room issues and injuries. He had a stint with the Dallas Cowboys in 2001 but only played four games.

TALENTED GROUP OF QBS HOPE TO GIVE SEC HIERARCHY A JOLT

Leaf is widely considered to be one of the biggest busts in NFL history. He was in the same draft class as Peyton Manning, Randy Moss, Hines Ward and Charles Woodson.

Years after he was finishing playing, Leaf was arrested in 2012 for breaking into a home in Montana to steal prescription drugs and for violating probation in Texas.

After he was released from prison in 2014, Leaf has gotten his life back on track and has taken the steps to get into broadcasting. The former quarterback, who earned a broadcast journalism degree from the Murrow School at Washington State, shadowed ESPN’s Greg McElroy for one game last season and it led to an ESPN audition in March. He got the call about the job last month.

“Five years ago, sitting in a prison cell, I would have never imagined that I was going to be part of ESPN and the Disney Corporation,” he told the Associated Press. “If you would have told me that, I would have said you are absolutely crazy. And I can’t believe it. I lay my head down every night with a ton of gratitude.”

Michael Beckerman: Why do we need a federal privacy law? Ask the data brokers selling your information

Westlake Legal Group istock-879813798 Michael Beckerman: Why do we need a federal privacy law? Ask the data brokers selling your information Michael Beckerman fox-news/tech/topics/privacy fox-news/tech/topics/big-tech-backlash fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc article 97102c34-0770-5b3d-a581-aafa8ef26e49

It’s an experience we’ve all had before: telemarketers calling during dinner or mailers show up from the postman, targeting us for products that we don’t need or want.

Imagine a member of the military returning home from overseas and getting a mailer in their name with personal details from a company they’ve never heard of or done business with. Or a woman who just found out she’s pregnant immediately getting ads for diapers and onesies before having the chance to tell family or friends. Or receiving solicitation calls about signing up for new credit cards or taking on a car loan when you get a new job. It feels intrusive.

OK GOOGLE, ARE YOU LISTENING? TECH GIANT’S SMART SPEAKERS EAVESDROP ON PRIVATE CONVERSATIONS, INVESTIGATION FINDS

Those ads, which have your real name, address, and phone number, aren’t a coincidence. Data brokers that consumers have no relationship with create custom profiles of individuals and sell them to anybody willing to pay for it.

You don’t have to take my word for it. A brochure posted by Oracle, one of the largest commercial data brokers, advertised a wide range of custom-targeted audiences. Some were generic, but some were deeply personal, reflecting traits that many consumers probably don’t know are tracked and don’t want anyone to track; “very low buying power,” “cold & flu sufferers,” and even “Military PTSD.” These audiences are not anonymized data — they contain real names, real addresses, and real personally-identifiable information about Americans, available to the highest bidder.

You might be surprised to learn all of this, which is exactly why we need a comprehensive federal privacy law that protects consumers, provides meaningful transparency, and gives consumers control over how their data is collected, used, and shared. For any privacy law to be truly comprehensive and meaningful for consumers, we must pass legislation that covers businesses across all industries that collect and use data, whether they’re online or offline companies. This must include offline credit reporting agencies and data brokers like Oracle, Equifax, Acxiom, and Experian.

Most Americans are largely unaware – and would be very troubled to know – that these massive companies are assembling profiles of them from thousands of different sources and selling it to advertisers. While individuals expect a social media company to know about the information on their profiles, they likely have no idea that Experian, Oracle, or many other massive data brokers have their address, phone number, and a dossier of their probable medical ailments — again, tied directly to their name.

Data brokers have no relationship with the people whose data they collect and sell. They dig up public records, purchase histories, online browser histories, and anything else they can get their hands on, re-assembling them, packaging them, and selling your personal information.

To be clear, internet platforms need to do a better job protecting privacy too. Improving transparency, control and trust is paramount. New rules are needed for everyone.  But the practices of data brokers are hidden and in stark contrast to internet companies that allow users to delete their accounts whenever they want and control their privacy settings with just a few clicks. The same isn’t true of companies in the offline world.

Americans cannot easily delete – or even access – the profile assembled on them by third-party data brokers, and they have extremely limited control over what is collected, reported, or sold about them. In a panel at the Milken Institute, I spoke out about this discrepancy between services that Americans sign up for and the anonymous brokers who fly under the radar, collecting your data without your knowledge.

It’s time to bring all parties involved to the table to discuss comprehensive, federal solutions to protect American’s privacy. Our companies are united in a desire for comprehensive federal privacy laws that protect all Americans.

Americans deserve to have the same expectation of privacy and control over their data no matter where they wander on the web or in the real world. Let’s make it happen.

The driver of a semi-truck involved in a crash that claimed the lives of a mother and her 18-month-old twins in Indianapolis was arrested on Sunday night and faces three preliminary counts of reckless homicide, a report said.

Bruce Pollard, 57, was arrested after investigators said they believe the truck’s speed could have been a factor, WISHTV.com reported. The report said that Pollard was driving the truck at around noon when he plowed into traffic that was stopped.

The mother and her twins were reportedly in the first car that was hit by the truck, the report said. It burst into flames, the report said. Several other cars were damaged. The mother and twins died at the scene.

Peter Navarro: President Trump continues to deliver on his promise to ‘Buy American, Hire American’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6059019718001_6059017036001-vs Peter Navarro: President Trump continues to deliver on his promise to 'Buy American, Hire American' Peter Navarro fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics fox-news/opinion fox news fnc/opinion fnc fe444e9b-17f3-5541-bc76-5fb3da2cc410 article

Candidate Donald J. Trump promised his administration would follow two simple rules: “Buy American and Hire American.” Monday, during the third annual Made in America Showcase at the White House, President Trump will sign the latest in a series of executive orders keeping that promise.

The Buy American Act requires federal agencies to procure domestic iron, steel, and other materials and products for federal projects like airports, roads, and bridges. That’s good policy for at least three reasons.

Buy American federal procurement rules provide good manufacturing jobs at good wages, propelling more workers into middle-class prosperity.

TRUMP TELLS CONGRESS TO ‘IMMEDIATELY’ APPROVE MEXICO-CANADA TRADE DEAL, SAYS US MOVING PAST ‘STUPID YEARS’ OF TRADE POLICY

In addition, about 20 cents of every Buy American dollar tends to come back to the United States Treasury in the form of taxes paid by corporations and workers earning profits and wages on Buy American projects, and state and local governments benefitting from more sales tax revenues.

Perhaps most importantly, Buy American helps strengthen our manufacturing and defense industrial base in the interests of both economic and national security.

Just weeks after taking office, President Trump signed Executive Order 13788 — “Buy American I.”  This robust order immediately imposed greater oversight to stop unnecessary waivers to federal contractors. As a result, waivers dropped by 15 percent in just one year, and the proportion of federal government contract spending on foreign goods has hit a 10-year low.

Last January, President Trump signed “Buy American II” — Executive Order 13858. This order closes another costly loophole whereby, prior to this order, Buy American rules were often not applied to many forms of indirect federal government procurement that occurs through federal financial assistance to the states and other entities.

Going forward, under the rules of Buy American II, more than 30 federal agencies are now strongly encouraged to apply Buy American to loans, loan guarantees, cooperative agreements, insurance and interest subsidies, and other instruments.  When fully implemented, this order will potentially extend Buy American’s reach by tens of billions of dollars.

About 20 cents of every Buy American dollar tends to come back to the United States Treasury in the form of taxes paid by corporations and workers earning profits and wages on Buy American projects, and state and local governments benefitting from more sales tax revenues. 

Monday, the president is adding a third pillar to his Buy American platform by directing the Federal Acquisition Regulatory Council to consider amending regulations that adopted the policies expressed in President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Executive Order 10582.

In this landmark 1954 order, Eisenhower declared that a product is American-made if it is manufactured domestically and at least 50 percent of its value components by value are domestically sourced.

Two years later, Eisenhower authorized the greatest public works project in American history, the Interstate Highway System; and much of it would go on to be built with American materials because of his 1954 order.

With Monday’s signing of Buy American III, President Trump has moved towards increasing the Eisenhower domestic content threshold for American-made iron and steel from 50 percent to 95 percent.

He is also recommending raising the threshold for all other products from 50 percent to 55 percent, with consideration of eventually raising the threshold to 75 percent.

I have seen firsthand across this great nation how stronger Buy American rules, coupled with other Trump actions such as steel and aluminum tariffs, corporate tax cuts to stimulate investment, reduced regulatory burdens, and robust workforce development programs, are driving a revival in United States steel production and a renaissance in American manufacturing.

For example, I have stood on the Duluth Ore Dock watching tons of iron ore arrive by rail from Minnesota’s Mesabi iron range, toured the good ship Edgar G. Speer that would take that ore to steel mills in places such as Wisconsin and Indiana, and visited once idle mills now operating at full capacity.

I have also seen this beautiful American steel serve as the basic building block of combat vehicles made in Lima, Ohio and Oshkosh, Wisconsin and ships built in Marinette, Wisconsin.

When I visit these facilities, my first thought is always this: It is simply common sense to spend American taxpayer dollars on American materials and American labor.

No one understands the power of Buy American, Hire American better than President Donald J. Trump.

So let us celebrate his latest Buy American action together – knowing full well that there will be more such actions to come for the men and women of America who work with their hands in the factories across this great nation – shining monuments of production that represent the engines of the American economy and the backbone of our defense industrial base.

President Trump’s impeachment organizer Tom Steyer has joined the race to become the Democratic presidential nominee with a pledge to spend $100 million of his own billion-dollar fortune. While it will not put him any closer to defeating Donald Trump, it does likely close the door on former Vice President Joe Biden winning the nomination.

Steyer’s notoriety comes from donating the billions he has made investing in fossil fuels, private prisons and subprime lending companies into progressive activism for impeaching President Trump and reckless environmental policies.

TOM STEYER HITS BACK AT ‘INSIDER’ DEMOCRATIC RIVALS AFTER SANDERS, WARREN SWIPES

He will be pushing the same radical, job-killing climate change ideas that those defining the progressive agenda such as New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senators Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have been screaming for. The difference is Steyer’s pledge to spend $100 million means he will be a loud voice that voters will hear and see.

Steyer’s spending doesn’t guarantee voters will get behind his candidacy, but it does mean Biden will have to fend off attacks on his pragmatism or risk losing ground to Harris, Warren or Sanders.

He also ensures the eventual Democratic nominee will have to put economic socialism and environmental recklessness at the forefront of his or her message.

To date, Biden’s weakening support has been as much a matter of his own missteps as specific attacks by other candidates. His opponents have already increased attention to his record on race, his age, and not being connected to today’s Democratic Party – not to mention his propensity for being overly touchy.

Still, the negative quotient has been diffuse, making it hard to distinguish noise from actual sound. All that changes when Steyer puts his money on the table. The sheer amount he spends on a given message will force the discussion in that direction.

This will happen very quickly.  Steyer is already on television with advertising totaling $1.5 million in the first four contests — Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada. The impact of Steyer’s candidacy is one more nail in the coffin that will become the Biden for President campaign.

Also, while Biden is seemingly content to mechanically run his campaign as he has in his previous two bids for the presidency, Steyer will be relying on modern technology to get the job done. Two early states, Iowa and Nevada, are allowing votes to be cast for their caucuses using a mobile phone. It will hardly be a shocker when Steyer’s forces go to university campuses to engage and activate students on the spot to vote for their man.

These activists are determined to have their voices heard. And the Steyer candidacy will have the infrastructure to make it happen. The more progressive and single-issue environmental voters participate in early contests, the larger a turnout there will be for Steyer, Harris, Sanders and Warren.

The more Steyer talks about carbon-free sources of energy, the more Biden will be forced to admit to Pennsylvania coal miners that he is ready to sell them out.

The more ground Biden cedes to progressive, single-issue environmental causes, the harder it will be for him to, with any credibility, claim to be a champion for blue collar manufacturing workers.

Biden has now endorsed the Green New Deal but that does not mean he will receive a pass from the greener factions of the Democrat Party.

The self-funding Steyer also widens a vulnerability for Biden that is already being exploited by Warren – and that is his coziness with lobbyists and wealthy donors.

Just like Donald Trump in 2016, Steyer will be able to make the case that he doesn’t need special interest money because he is spending his own – and then point to Biden as part of the swamp.

The knock on Steyer is whether he’s the answer to the biggest question being asked by Democrats: “Who can beat President Trump?”

The GOP is ready to spend in the billions to win President Trump a second term.  Not even Steyer has the money it would need to overtake a well-funded incumbent party.

If Steyer actually comes through on his pledge to spend $100 million to push impeachment and progressive causes that Biden won’t support, then he is in the perfect position to spoil the race for Biden – and tip the race to Harris, Sanders or Warren.

Did someone say Steyer for Vice President?
