NY State Sheriff’s Association President: Green Light Law restricts information law enforcement needs

New York state’s controversial Green Light Law prevents federal law enforcement agencies from doing their job, Sheriff Jeffrey Murphy said Saturday.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends: Weekend” with host Griff Jenkins, the New York Sheriff’s Association president likened the policy to new bail reform laws which also limit access to Department of Motor Vehicles records.

He argued that illegal and undocumented immigrants in the country can provide up to 600 different types of documentation to obtain a driver’s license.

“So, it also puts the onus on motor vehicle clerks across the state to try to verify these documents when — oftentimes — and especially in this day and age with technology, fraudulent documentation is very easy to obtain.”

NEW YORK SHERIFFS CALL OUT ‘UNWISE’ GREEN LIGHT LAW AS CUOMO MEETS TRUMP

The Green Light Law allows illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses in New York, while prohibiting DMV agencies across the state from sharing criminal records with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The law, implemented in December, has drawn major criticism from Republicans and the Trump administration. In a decisive retaliatory action, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced last week that it would bar tens of thousands of New Yorkers from enrolling in Trusted Traveler Programs (TTP) that allow travelers to speed through airport lines and borders.

The association of New York police chiefs is backing the administration’s pushback on the law.

In a letter to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and other state politicians, the New York State Sheriffs’ Association expressed its “opposition and deep concern” about the recently passed law.

In a separate letter, the New York State Association of Chiefs of Police thanked Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf for notifying leaders of recent actions taken by DHS in response to the Green Light Law. He emphasized the importance of sharing information with law enforcement.

“Our members fully recognize that sharing pertinent law enforcement information and vital resources across local, state and federal boundaries is critical to ensuring the safety of the communities we serve,” the letter said.

“It is our hope that reasonableness will prevail by all involved and that an appropriate resolution can be attained,” it continued. “What’s ultimately required is an operational and administrative process that prioritizes public safety for all New Yorkers and serves as its fundamental cornerstone.”

“You know, those federal agencies that are banned from accessing these records are not only tasked with enforcing immigration laws, they also handle very serious crimes like narcotics trafficking, human trafficking, child sexual exploitation, terrorism — cases like that,” Murphy pointed out.

“And, when you’re talking about cases of terrorism or cases of child sexual exploitation, you know, federal authorities certainly should have that information at hand,” Murphy concluded.

Klobuchar, 5’4”, claims to be same height as Jefferson in Maher interview confusion

Westlake Legal Group AP20039110816153 Klobuchar, 5’4”, claims to be same height as Jefferson in Maher interview confusion Marisa Schultz fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/michael-bloomberg fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/amy-klobuchar fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 86873546-876f-5747-8656-6e8a3ace6869

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, a surging Democratic White House hopeful, mistakenly said she’s just as tall as the towering Thomas Jefferson in a botched history reference on “The Real Time with Bill Maher.”

Klobuchar is 5 feet 4 inches tall. Jefferson was among the tallest U.S. presidents standing at 6 feet 2 inches.

IN UNEARTHED 2006 CLIP, KLOBUCHAR CALLED FOR FENCE, ‘ORDER’ AT THE BORDER

The blunder happened when Klobuchar, D-Minn., weighed into the dustup between President Trump and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg during the HBO interview that aired Friday night. Trump routinely teases Bloomberg for his short stature and recently accused “Mini Mike” of being just 5 feet 4 inches.

Bloomberg is 5 feet 7 inches, according to his medical records.

“I am the only one that is truly 5 foot 4,” Klobuchar said in the interview that aired Friday.

But then Maher chimed in with an incorrect statement: “Thomas Jefferson was 5 foot 4.”

Klobuchar pointed at the HBO host in agreement: “Exactly!”

“There is a president that was 5 foot 4. Jefferson,” Klobuchar said.

The real president who was that short was Founding Father James Madison.

The gaffe was surprising for Klobuchar because she’s fond of bringing up Madison’s height in her campaign pitch to voters that you don’t need to be the tallest to win the White House.

Her comparison to Madison was one of her stand-out moments on the debate stage in Iowa on Jan. 14 in countering critics who think a woman can’t win.

“I point out that you don’t have to be the tallest person in the room,” Klobuchar said at the debate. “James Madison was 5’4”. You don’t have to be the skinniest person in the room. You don’t have to be the loudest person. You have to be competent,” Klobuchar said.

VULNERABLE HOUSE DEMS SOUND ALARM ABOUT POTENTIAL SANDERS NOMINATION: ‘IT’S BAD’

The blunder comes on the heels of another gaffe where Klobuchar and fellow candidate Tom Steyer couldn’t name the president of Mexico in separate televised interviews Thursday with Spanish-language station Telemundo.

Klobuchar had a strong third-place finish in New Hampshire on Tuesday and has picked up support from more centrist-minded voters as former vice president Joe Biden’s campaign collapsed in the two early-voting states.

Maher ended the interview with a doomsday question for the candidate: What happens if Trump loses, but refuses to leave office and has the support of the military and police to stay – “the ones with guns.”

Klobuchar expressed optimism that Trump would lose big and the people would be on her side.

“We have always had a peaceful transition of power in this country,” Klobuchar said.

“Always have had, correct. We are now in a different world,” Maher countered.

Then Klobuchar made another case for her electability: “Every single Republican that I’ve run against, in my entire career, has left politics for good and never returned.”

Google marks Susan B. Anthony birthday, women’s suffrage with doodle

Susan B. Anthony’s long fight for women’s right to vote and the suffrage movement are getting their moment in the spotlight on Google’s homepage.

The search engine’s newest doodle honors Anthony on what would be her  200th birthday and the 100th anniversary of women’s suffrage in the United States.

Anthony, born in western Massachusetts in 1820, had a passion for social reform at an early age, inspired by meeting prominent abolitionists such as Frederick Douglass and William Lloyd Garrison.

For more than 50 years, Anthony worked alongside reformer Elizabeth Cady Stanton to fight and advocate for women’s rights.

On Nov. 5, 1872, Anthony reportedly walked into a voting station in Rochester, N.Y., and cast a vote for a presidential election – defying the law at the time, which denied women the right to vote.

She was fined $100 – which is about $2,100 today. She proudly proclaimed: “I shall never pay a dollar for your unjust penalty.”

In 1920, nearly 50 years after Anthony’s protest, women in America were finally granted the right to vote with the passage of the 19th Amendment. However, it wouldn’t be until the Voting Rights Act of 1965 that women of color were included.

The Treasury Department honored Anthony in 1979 by placing her image on the dollar coin, marking the first time a woman was depicted on U.S. currency. A plan for famed abolitionist Harriet Tubman to adorn the $20 bill was tabled by the Trump administration.

Former tennis player and an advocate for women’s rights, Billie Jean King, also honored Anthony on her birthday, tweeting a quote from the famed activist.

Florida snake orgy forces officials to close area of park

There’s a snake orgy happening in Florida.

Officials in Lakeland say a number of the reptiles have gathered this week to make love near Lake Hollingsworth.

“They are non-venomous and generally not aggressive as long as people do not disturb them,” the city’s parks and recreation department wrote on Facebook. “Once the mating is over they should go their separate ways.”

The snakes have been identified as Florida water snakes, which “are generally found resting in tree limbs over water or basking on shorelines,” the department added.

Country singer Daniel Lee Martin dead by suicide amid child sex abuse charges

Country singer David Lee Martin, who was accused of child sex crimes, has died by suicide, Fox News can confirm.

The musician and former reality show host was found dead at age 54 from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound at his Florida home, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement to Fox News on Saturday.

Martin’s body was found by officers when they arrived at his property to serve multiple arrest warrants that had been issued out of Tennessee.

The singer was accused of “three counts of sexual exploitation on a minor, three counts of aggravated sexual battery, one count of solicitation of a minor to commit rape of a child and two counts of committing an aggravated sexual battery,” according to the statement.

Martin had threatened to harm himself prior to his death on Friday.

“Martin did not respond to attempts to make contact with him,” the sheriff’s statement continues. “The PSO SWAT team was called in to assist, as Martin previously made threats of harm against himself and others.”

According to the Tampa Bay Times, Martin was arrested in late January on charges of lewd and lascivious exhibition and prohibition of certain acts in connection with obscenity.

Trump administration to deploy Border Patrol to sanctuary cities to help ICE catch illegal immigrants

Westlake Legal Group image Trump administration to deploy Border Patrol to sanctuary cities to help ICE catch illegal immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/topic/sanctuary-cities fox news fnc/politics fnc bd73650c-470c-5e0d-a01b-4fa4e4ea0fbf article Adam Shaw

The Trump administration is deploying border patrol agents to sanctuary jurisdictions across the U.S. to help Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) track down and detain illegal immigrants freed by left-wing cities and states.

The New York Times reported Friday the administration is sending 100 specially trained officers to work with ICE from February to May. Among the agents are members of an elite unit known as BORTAC — which the Times describes as the SWAT team of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP)

Such agents have gear like stun grenades and typically conduct high-risk operations targeting individuals known to be violent and those with significant criminal records, the Times reported. ICE primarily focuses on illegal immigrants with criminal records, but will not rule out detaining others as “collateral” arrests.

BRANDON JUDD: SANCTUARY CITIES LIKE LOS ANGELES SENDING ‘WRONG MESSAGE’ BY NOT COOPERATING WITH ICE

In a statement Friday, the CBP said the crisis at the border led to an increase in so-called non-detained cases — 3.2 million in fiscal year 2019, up from 2.6 million in FY2018. ICE struggled to keep up, particularly as more jurisdictions implemented the controversial sanctuary policies.

“With 5,300 [Enforcement and Removal Operations] law enforcement officers – some of whom were detailed to the border – ICE does not have sufficient resources to effectively manage the sustained increase in non-detained cases which is exacerbated by the rise of sanctuary jurisdictions,” the statement said.

The administration said agents and officers come from a number of sectors and positions — including those trained in tactical operations, although they note that that is “one of the many areas of training.”

“These officers have also been trained in routine immigration enforcement actions which is what they have been asked to do. All CBP officers and agents are FLETC-trained [Federal Law Enforcement Training Centers], just like ICE, and are more than capable of helping ICE fulfill their mission,” the statement said.

Democratic local officials responded to the push by doubling down on their policies.

“Regardless of your immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know your city is on your side,” Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said in a video message. “Here in Los Angeles, our police department does not coordinate with ICE or participate in immigration enforcement.”

GRANDDAUGHTER OF WOMAN ALLEGEDLY MURDERED BY ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT IN NYC RIPS SANCTUARY CITIES AT TRUMP SPEECH

The push comes amid a broader effort by the Trump administration to crack down on states and cities that implement sanctuary policies. Such policies limit local law enforcement cooperation with federal immigration authorities in an effort to shield illegal immigrants from deportation. Specifically, they refuse to honor detainers — requests that ICE be alerted of an illegal immigrant’s release from custody so they can be transferred into ICE custody.

The Trump administration has opposed the practice. The Justice Department this week announced a slew of measures to tackle it, and President Trump has called on Congress to pass legislation that would allow victims of crimes committed by illegal immigrants to sue sanctuary cities and states.

Trump also has highlighted the dangers of releasing criminal illegal immigrants back onto the streets instead of alerting ICE so they can be removed from the country.

He slammed sanctuary cities in his State of the Union address, and returned to the topic in a speech to the National Border Patrol Council on Friday.

“Not one more American life should be stolen by sanctuary cities; they’re all over the place and a lot of people don’t want them,” Trump said on Friday.

He brought up on stage the granddaughter of Maria Fuertes, a 92-year-old legal immigrant who was sexually assaulted and killed in New York City last month. An illegal immigrant who was sprung from custody a few months prior despite an ICE detainer is accused in the crime.

Her granddaughter, Daria Ortiz, tearfully told the audience: “The tragedy in all of this is the fact that this could have been avoided, had there been no sanctuary law.”

Amanda Bynes says she is officially a fiancee!

The 33-year-old actress took to Instagram on Valentine’s Day to announce she’s engaged along with a close-up photo of a diamond ring.

“Engaged to tha love of my life,” the “She’s The Man” star captioned a photo of her left hand resting on someone else’s.

AMANDA BYNES SHOWS OFF NEW FACE TATTOO WEEKS AFTER LEAVING SOBER LIVING FACILITY

Although Bynes has not shared any details about her fiance’s identity, the star’s Instagram photo shows her manicured nails resting on the hands of someone who appears to be donning a gold wedding band.

The photo left fans wondering who her mystery lover is.

“Is he already married?” one fan commented.

“Girl show us him,” another fan pleaded.

“Congratulations Ms Bynes or should I say…Mrs Bynes?!” a confused follower of the star asked.

Following her announcement, a source told People that the former troubled child star “seems happy.”

While Bynes made the big reveal on Friday, a mirror selfie she shared to Instagram one week prior shows her wearing the sparkler.

AMANDA BYNES SUED BY MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY FOR ALLEGEDLY NOT PAYING BILL

Bynes is known for making big statements on social media. In December, the 33-year-old showed off a new face tattoo.

The marking is an outline of a black heart on her left cheek.

The tattoo snap marked Bynes’ return to social media after reports claimed she had left a sober living facility. She was reportedly in treatment in late 2019 for mental health and was also undergoing routine drug testing at the facility.

Bynes remains under a conservatorship controlled by her mother, Lynn. The agreement was extended last year to August 2020.

In June, the “All That” actress announced she had graduated from the Los Angeles-based Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising.

Family of American held in Lebanon claims he’s a hostage, US senator threatens sanctions

Lebanon could soon find itself punished by sanctions over the detention of an American citizen.

The plight of the New Hampshire resident, Amer Fakhoury, has caught the attention of Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., who is threatening to sanction individuals involved in his imprisonment.

Shaheen is pressing the Lebanese government to release him, especially since he has been diagnosed with cancer.  The family is also urging President Trump to intervene.

“There has been no evidence to substantiate the charges against Amer Fakhoury and his health condition is dire,” Shaheen said in a statement to Fox News. “Time is of the essence, and the Lebanese government needs to understand there will be consequences for his continued detention.”

LEBANESE-AMERICAN BEING HELD IN BEIRUT NOW RISKS DEATH SENTENCE AFTER MURDER CHARGE, JUDGE SAYS

Shaheen, who is reportedly working on a sanctions bill, stated, “Whenever an American is held unjustly by a foreign government, we as a nation need to do everything we can to bring them home. All options, including sanctions, are on the table to secure Mr. Fakhoury’s freedom, reunite him with his family and provide the care he urgently needs.”

According to the US Aid website, the United States gave around $201 million in assistance to Lebanon in 2019. The Trump administration released economic and military aid in December even though Fakhoury was then being held without any charges.

His family thanked Shaheen for her help and called for his immediate release., noting that he has stage four B cell lymphoma.

“He is gravely ill and the hospital lacks the basic medicine in order to treat him properly,” the family said in a statement. 

In urging Trump’s support, Fakhoury’s family said he supported the president in 2016 and even posed with him for a picture.

“The family calls on President Trump to help bring this innocent American citizen back home,” the statement said. “He is in critical condition and every day his health is deteriorating. We fear that our father will die in Lebanon.”

Fakhoury was arrested in his native Lebanon during a family trip last September after he was accused in a pro-Hezbollah publication of torturing Hezbollah and Palestinian prisoners while he served with the South Lebanon Army (SLA) at Khiam prison.

DAUGHTER OF AMERICAN HOSTAGE IN LEBANON CALLS ON TRUMP TO ACT

The SLA was a predominantly Christian force allied and supported by Israel during its proxy war against Hezbollah and Palestinian militant groups in the 1980s and ’90s.

After being held without charges for nearly six months, The Associated Press reported that Fakhoury was charged earlier this month by a military judge with murder and attempted murder of prisoners at a jail run by the SLA. He was also charged with kidnapping and torture.

His lawyer, Celine Atallah, told Fox News the charges are fabricated, noting that after all the investigations were made into the infamous prison and the names of those accused of torture and murder were made public, Fakhoury was not among them.

Atallah maintains that there is no evidence to support his continued detention.

“Amer’s only crime is that he is a United States citizen, which is making the Lebanese government hold him hostage to gain leverage over the United States,” she said. “This is an egregious act of criminality by them …. to torture and refuse to release a critically ill innocent American citizen just for them to gain leverage over the United States.”

She added: “They should understand that our government does not negotiate with terrorists, and they should be on notice of the sanctions being drafted by Sen. Shaheen, as diplomacy does not work with these people.”

Atallah said she hopes that incoming U.S. Ambassador Dorothy Shea will make Fakhoury’s release “one of her first priorities.”

Tony Badran, a research fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies who focuses on the region, said “the Lebanese government should suffer the consequences of its agencies illegally imprisoning an American citizen.”

“Hezbollah runs the entire political order in Lebanon. Hence, any government which emerges from that order is a Hezbollah government,” Badran said. “This latest government does not have the fig leaf of political figures the West is comfortable with, like former Prime Minister Saad Hariri. Whether or not the government includes such figures is irrelevant. The real power behind it is the same regardless. And that’s Hezbollah.”

A State Department official told Fox News that the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon is closely monitoring the Fakhoury case.

“We are concerned about his welfare, as doctors report his health is failing and he requires urgent specialized medical treatment. We have raised these concerns at all appropriate levels with the Lebanese government. We will continue to follow his case closely, and to provide him and his family all appropriate consular assistance,” the statement said.

Questions emailed by Fox News to Lebanese authorities were not returned.

Sanders needs to tie himself to and channel FDR.

I honestly dont know why he hasn’t yet, or Warren for that matter.

They are both very FDR like, and both of them have policies that carry on his legislative positions.

I would also like to see either of them wield power like FDR did, FDR straight up said “Fuck you SCOTUS, either uphold these policies or i will appoint judges that will and dilute your individual power”

I honestly think it may come to that anyway. These ultra conservative judges will be making decisions for pretty much the rest of my life (im 39 at the cusp of 40) regardless of how the population at larges ideals shift. The Left could absolutely crush the Right for the next 30y and hold trifecta control of the government and have everything overturned by the court.
