Acting ICE director blasts AOC for wanting to abolish agency: ‘I would like to talk to that young congresswoman’

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6045152967001_6045144113001-vs Acting ICE director blasts AOC for wanting to abolish agency: 'I would like to talk to that young congresswoman' Victor Garcia fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 7781fbf1-1ff3-5cf8-a8c9-796d4a703fdd

The acting director of ICE appeared on “The Ingraham Angle” Wednesday where he blasted Congress for inactivity regarding the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, saying lawmakers “refuse” to do what’s needed.

Mark Morgan, who took the job in early May after leading the U.S. Border Patrol, also defended ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) against those who would like to see it abolished, in particular, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

“If you talk about abolishing ICE, it is absolutely irresponsible,” Morgan told Ingraham. “Last year alone 34,000 criminal arrests, 5,000 gang members arrested. Thousands of cases of child smuggling exploitation, human trafficking.”

“If you talk about abolishing ICE, it is absolutely irresponsible. Last year alone 34,000 criminal arrests, 5,000 gang members arrested. Thousands of cases of child smuggling exploitation, human trafficking.”

— Mark Morgan, acting director, Immigration and Customs Enforcement

Morgan added, “I would like to talk to that young congresswoman and have her tell me what is going to happen if ICE is abolished.”

He also told host Laura Ingraham that Congress has been a major impediment against ICE accomplishing its goals at the U.S.-Mexico border.

“We’ve been sounding the alarm for a very long time that this is absolutely a humanitarian and national security crisis,” Morgan said. “Congress has failed to do their job.

MEXICO OFFICIALS PREPARE TO INTERCEPT ABOUT 1,000 MIGRANTS

“It is unbelievable to me that we’re still asking, across the board, what can Congress do,”  Morgan added, “when we’ve been telling Congress — the experts living this every single day from ICE to the Border Patrol, the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] — they need to pass meaningful legislation, they need to address the Flores agreement and they do that, fund some bed space and this crisis ends tomorrow.”

The Flores agreement refers to Reno v. Flores, a 1990s U.S. Supreme Court case that set standards for the treatment of minors detained by U.S. immigration authorities.

The Border Patrol’s apprehensions about migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border hit their highest level in more than a decade in May, as officials warned they don’t have the money and resources to address the surge of parents and children entering the U.S.

Agents apprehended 132,887 in May, the first time that apprehensions have topped 100,000 since April 2007. It set a record with 84,542 adults and children apprehended. Another 11,507 were children traveling alone, and 36,838 were single adults.

Morgan acknowledged dire situations involving facilities and supplies on the border with Mexico, saying conditions and facilities were unsafe and arguing that Congress refuses to help.

“Congress is still sitting on their hands,” Morgan said.

Mark Levin: Mainstream media ‘abandoned the pursuit of objectivity’

Westlake Legal Group Levin-Hannity-FOX Mark Levin: Mainstream media 'abandoned the pursuit of objectivity' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc d56db0f4-732f-5fc0-86f3-b9d502bc14dc Charles Creitz article

The mainstream media is no longer trying to be objective in their reporting, according to Mark Levin.

The host of Fox News’ “Life, Liberty & Levin” claimed Wednesday on “Hannity” that the media are trying to promote a progressive political platform.

“They have abandoned the pursuit of objectivity for social activism, progressivism, and the Democratic Party agenda. And, they promote that agenda day in and day out. In fact, they lead it,” Levin claimed.

TRUMP BLASTS MUELLER AS ‘HIGHLY CONFLICTED,’ CALLS IMPEACHMENT A ‘DIRTY, FILTHY, DISGUSTING WORD’

Levin said he believes the prevalence of the term “impeachment” in the day-to-day lexicon is not because of any actions on the part of President Trump, but because the media continues to cover the prospect of such a development.

“The reason we talk about impeachment today is not because the president committed any impeachable offenses, it is because the media and the Democratic Party want to remove him,” he said. “The reason we spent two-and-a-half years talking about collusion with Russia… [was] not because there was any evidence, but because this is what the media was pushing.”

“The reason we talk about impeachment today is not because the president committed any impeachable offenses, it is because the media and the Democratic Party want to remove him.”

— Mark Levin

The radio host continued, saying the right to freedom of the press was meant as a service to the American people and not a means to push any alleged agenda.

“It’s in there for the American people. Why do we have freedom of the press? We have freedom of the press to expand freedom of speech among the American people,” he said.

“The point of news and newsrooms is to give us the information through which we can make decisions about our families, our lives, our government, our country, so we can be informed.”

He added he believes the difference between commentators like himself and some reporters on network television is that he and hosts like Sean Hannity express to their audience when they have a political view on something.

“The difference is we’re transparent. We tell people who we are,” he said.

Tulsi Gabbard: ‘Hyper-partisanship’ getting in the way of pathway to citizenship legislation

Westlake Legal Group McCallum-Gabbard-FOX Tulsi Gabbard: 'Hyper-partisanship' getting in the way of pathway to citizenship legislation fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/topic/daca fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc f3b7afc1-f7a4-548f-bfe4-471088b7c512 Charles Creitz article

Washington’s “hyper-partisan” atmosphere is getting in the way of meaningful progress on approving a pathway to citizenship for Dreamers, Tulsi Gabbard said.

Rep. Gabbard, D-Hawaii, reacted to the Democrat-led House passing the Dream and Promise Act, which would protect people covered by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, in an interview Wednesday on “The Story.”

Gabbard, a 2020 Democratic presidential candidate, claimed the stark political divide is holding back Congress’ ability to help affected individuals receive a pathway to citizenship.

HOUSE PASSES BILL GIVING ‘DREAMERS’ PATH TO CITIZENSHIP, DESPITE TRUMP VETO THREAT

“The hyper-partisanship around this issue has gotten in the way of delivering a real solution,” she said. “This legislation and finding a solution for these Dreamers is something that has had bipartisan support.”

The Army veteran added Dreamers and DACA recipients are being unfairly treated through no fault of their own.

“This bill, passed with bipartisan support, seeks to address a deeply concerning issue about how people were brought here into this country as children with no choice of their own [and] have been living in fear and uncertainty with no path towards a future.”

She said those affected know only of their life in the U.S. and therefore should be treated better than they are.

“These people who have known no other country than the United States of America as their home, should have the opportunity to earn their citizenship. This bill provides the path to do that.”

Despite a veto threat from President Trump, House Democrats on Tuesday passed the Dream and Promise Act.

The 237-187 vote elicited chants of “Si Se Puede” or “Yes We Can” in the chamber. The measure is not likely to succeed in the GOP-led Senate, where other pieces of legislation advanced by Democrats on issues like gun controlhealthcare and climate change have languished in recent years.

Seven Republicans voted to support the bill, while all 187 “no” votes came from Republicans.

Rep. Mark Meadows: ‘Senate Republicans need to get a backbone’ on immigration

Senate Republicans must take action on immigration reform instead of allowing Democrats to prevent President Trump from securing the border, according to Mark Meadows.

On the House side, Republicans will continue to follow Trump’s lead on the issue, Rep. Meadows, R-N.C. said Wednesday on “The Todd Starnes Show.”

“If the president works, we’re going to stand with the president and we’re going to secure our border,” the House Freedom Caucus chairman said.

TRUMP: MEXICO TARIFFS ‘WILL TAKE EFFECT,’ ‘FOOLISH’ FOR GOP TO BLOCK

He criticized some Republican senators for taking issue with Trump’s decision to use tariffs against Mexico to get their assistance on the illegal immigration front.

“They passed a disaster relief [bill] out of the Senate, which we all know that many of our states needed that disaster relief,” Meadows said.

“But they also passed it without giving the president any money for border security measures. Now they want to blame the president for actually taking a tool that he has in his toolbox to make sure we secure the border.”

“Shame on them, and I’m saying it being a part of the same party,” the western North Carolina lawmaker said.

Meadows added, “There’s nothing being done other than a whole lot of politicians talking about doing something.”

“Whether you applaud the tactics or not, [Trump is] serious about getting something done.”

In the past week, Sens. Pat Toomey, R-Pa. and Charles Grassley R-Iowa, released statements opposing the use of tariffs.

Toomey said tariffs are a “dangerous and risky economic tool.”

“They raise the cost of products for American families, reduce market share abroad for U.S. exporters and make our economy less competitive globally. History has shown us time and again that nobody wins a trade war,” the Pennsylvania lawmaker added.

“Trade policy and border security are separate issues,” Grassley said last week.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Sens. Ted Cruz and John Cornyn, R-Texas, were also critical of tariffs.

Rush Limbaugh: Pelosi frustrated with the ignorance of her own party on impeachment

Westlake Legal Group pelosi-limbaugh-AP-FOX Rush Limbaugh: Pelosi frustrated with the ignorance of her own party on impeachment Victor Garcia fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc fe6b432f-f685-581d-bc3f-6f3d05ba0cbd article

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is growing frustrated with her party’s call to impeach President Trump and is having a hard time dealing with the push back, according to conservative radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh.

“She is hell-bent on making sure her party doesn’t do this, and that the various committees and that her base understand that this is not a good thing to do. And, apparently, she is getting frustrated beyond her ability to deal with it,” Limbaugh said on his radio show about Pelosi’s battle against impeachment within the Democratic Party.

CALIFORNIA DEM CONVENTION HEATS UP AS CANDIDATES JAB TRUMP, CALL FOR IMPEACHMENT

Pelosi voiced her frustration with impeachment calls Wednesday during her weekly press conference.

“What’s important for people to know, first of all, I travel all the time in the country. Do you know that most people think impeachment means you’re out of office? Did you ever get that feeling or are you just in the bubble here? They think if you get impeached, you’re gone, and that is completely not true,” she said.

Limbaugh reacted to Pelosi’s comments, saying she should have used former President Bill Clinton’s impeachment proceedings as an example before bashing the Democratic voters calling for impeachment.

“Her voters don’t even know what it means. That’s how stupid they are. Wrong. It’s how dumbed down they are,” Limbaugh said. “She’s gotten so frustrated over the abject ignorance of the people that support her that she had to explain to them what it means — and then she had to admit that 50 years ago, she didn’t even know what it meant.”

The radio host explained that Pelosi is aware that if the president is not convicted, he is “not guilty” and the Democratic Party will face an exonerated Trump in the 2020 elections.

“I don’t think she really wants to do it. Properly said, I think she really doesn’t want to do it because she can’t get a conviction out of it,” Limbaugh said.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota, John Berman defend Biden amid latest plagiarism controversy

CNN anchors Alisyn Camerota and John Berman stuck their necks out for former Vice President Joe Biden, whose campaign was hit with plagiarism charges after the release of his climate policy.

The apparent similarities were first flagged on Twitter by a progressive activist. By Tuesday afternoon, most of the examples in the Biden campaign platform had been updated online to include attribution to a third party.

During a panel discussion about the plagiarism charges on Wednesday, Berman echoed what he described as a “really interesting defense” from Sen. Chris Coons, which was “‘C’mon guys, I mean this compared to the things Democrats say the president is getting away with.'”

Camerota took their defense one step further.

BIDEN HAMMERED OVER CLIMATE PLAN PLAGIARISM ACCUSATIONS

JOE BIDEN ACCUSED OF PLAGIARIZING PARTS OF NEW CLIMATE PLATFORM

“Not only that, don’t you go to the experts — to the experts’ website — and lift some of their terminology and put it into your work?” Camerota asked.

“No, no,” CNN political analyst Joshua Green shot back. “You cite where you get your information from. Otherwise, it’s plagiarism. That’s what got him into trouble in the first place.”

“I hear you,” Camerota conceded.

Biden’s first presidential campaign was derailed in 1987 after his history of plagiarism surfaced. He suspended his candidacy one week later.

President Trump went after Biden over the latest plagiarism charges late on Tuesday night and accused the “Corrupt Media” of saving him.

“Plagiarism charge against Sleepy Joe Biden on his ridiculous Climate Change Plan is a big problem, but the Corrupt Media will save him,” Trump tweeted. “His other problem is that he is drawing flies, not people, to his Rallies. Nobody is showing up, I mean nobody. You can’t win without people!”

Collins on Nadler’s contempt vote: ‘He wants to subpoena everything that moves’

Westlake Legal Group b8507c79-jerrold-nadler Collins on Nadler’s contempt vote: 'He wants to subpoena everything that moves' Julia Musto fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/william-barr fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 4fb0f79b-459a-5938-aca1-f623858c9b17

House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., is pushing ahead with his planned contempt vote against Attorney General William Barr simply because he wants to “subpoena everything that moves,” according to Republican Rep. Doug Collins.

Appearing on “America’s Newsroom,” Collins, R-Ga., told hosts Bill Hemmer and Sandra Smith, “We’re seeing a chairman who frankly has shown, in five and a half months, he really doesn’t know what he wants.

“Except that, frankly, he wants to subpoena everything that moves. He wants to go to contempt and now he’s come back after holding someone in contempt –think about what’s happening here — you have a chairman who held somebody in contempt on false grounds and now he’s saying ‘I’m open to negotiate.’ He knows he can’t win in court; that’s what this is all about.”

This accusation is coming just hours after the Department of Justice slammed House Democrats for planning the vote and charged that they had privately admitted their subpoena requests were “overbroad.”

DOJ REVEALS DEMS ACKNOWLEDGED BARR SUBPOENA WAS ‘OVERBROAD’; NADLER FIRES BACK, OFFERS TO MEET ‘WITHOUT CONDITIONS’

On Tuesday morning, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd penned a letter blasting Nadler and House Democrats for announcing they would vote next week on whether to hold Barr and former White House counsel Don McGahn in contempt.

Boyd called on the House Judiciary Committee to “moot” its May 8 vote to hold Barr in contempt, but said they were “prepared to resume negotiations with the committee regarding accommodation of its narrowed Subpoena” — as long as Democrats removed the “threat of an imminent vote by the House of Representatives to hold the attorney general in contempt.”

In response, late that night, Nadler announced he was open to negotiating with the DOJ “without conditions,” sending Republicans and DOJ spokesmen into a frenzy.

“We are here and ready to negotiate as early as tomorrow morning,” he wrote.

CONSTITUTIONAL LAW SCHOLAR: CONGRESS HEADING INTO ‘WORLD OF HURT’ WITH BARR CONTEMPT VOTE

However, Nadler has refused to cancel the proposed vote prior to beginning any new negotiations, but also criticized what he deemed DOJ “brinkmanship.” He blamed the DOJ for stemming any negotiations in early May.

In a reactionary statement, Collins highlighted the DOJ’s revelation that Nadler apparently signaled a willingness to work with the DOJ: “After racing to hold Attorney General Barr in contempt, Chairman Nadler finally seems ready to join the Justice Department at the negotiating table,” he said.

“When Judiciary Democrats wield subpoena power like a sword instead of a plow, their investigations bear little fruit. The House Intelligence Committee has shown us that working with the Justice Department in good faith yields documents. Abusing subpoena and contempt authority, however, has left the Judiciary Committee with little to show for its obsessively unreasonable demands.”

On Wednesday, Collins echoed those sentiments, accusing Nadler of not have a “legitimate legislative purpose” in which to base his vote: “A legitimate legislative purpose is not presidential harassment on an issue in which Mueller has spoken. It is a purpose in which he just simply wants to get it out there to appear he’s trying to impeach.”

ANALYSIS: BARR DETERMINED TO FIND TRUTH BEHIND ORIGINS OF RUSSIA PROBE — AND DEMS ARE WORRIED

“How can you have a contempt for making the Attorney General follow the law? This is nothing but a circus and the chairman…I’m not sure where he wants to go next except he’s feeding a base that is pushing him,” said.

A vote of contempt against Barr would be historic, but not unprecedented. In 2012, the Republican-controlled House’s voted to hold former Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for failing to comply with investigations into the Obama administration’s failed gun-running sting operation, “Fast and Furious.”

The resolution scheduled for a June 11 floor vote and would allow the Judiciary Committee to pursue civil action to seek enforcement of its subpoenas in federal court.

“The chairman’s not negotiating. He’s coming back with the same tired talking points that he’s said before,” lamented Collins.

Acting ICE director slams Pete Buttigieg’s ‘misinformed’ criticism: ‘He is vilifying the wrong entity’

Westlake Legal Group Mark-Morgan-Pete-Buttigieg-AP Acting ICE director slams Pete Buttigieg's 'misinformed' criticism: 'He is vilifying the wrong entity' fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/politics/executive/homeland-security fox-news/person/pete-buttigieg fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article Anna Hopkins 76b254fa-da60-5add-951a-f78d9ef7d034

The acting ICE directed condemned Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s criticism of his department, calling his rhetoric “misinformed” and “inappropriate.”

Mark Morgan took issue with the South Bend, Indiana mayor saying Monday at a campaign event that immigration officials are ordered to carry out “inhumane” and “illegal” policies. Buttigieg called out the Trump administration for the deaths of migrant children in U.S. custody, saying “a child fleeing violence ought to have nothing to fear in the arms of the most powerful country in the world.”

During a Wednesday morning appearance on “Fox & Friends,” Morgan, who served previously as U.S. Border Patrol chief at the end of the Obama administration, outlined some of the recent accomplishments of his department.

On the homeland security enforcement side of ICE, Morgan said, there were 34,000 criminal arrests last year including 5,000 gang members, thousands of child exploitation and human trafficking cases handled and $1.2 billion in U.S. currency seized from illegal activity.

LAWRENCE JONES ON BUTTIGIEG’S MSNBC TOWN HALL: MAYOR PETE IS A ‘CHAMELEON’ 

“I would love to sit down with this mayor and have him explain to me which part of that is illegal or inhumane,” Morgan said, adding that agents are only carrying out their orders.

“He is vilifying the wrong entity. If he doesn’t like the laws, go to Congress, change the laws, we’ll enforce those laws,” he continued.

ICE agents put their lives on the line each day to protect Americans, Morgan said, arguing that Buttigieg’s criticism does a disservice to their sacrifice.

“The dedicated men and women of border patrol, all of CPB, HHS, ICE — they’re working every day, sacrificing so much to safeguard, protect this country, and when you hear stuff like that, it demoralizes them,” Morgan continued.

He said ICE and Border Patrol agents should not be blamed for the inaction of Congress on passing new immigration laws and for Mexico failing to stop the flow of migrants.

Other Democratic presidential candidates have called for the abolishment of ICE, including Sens. Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders.

Top Dem lawmaker downplays Trump’s impeachment, suggest media is pushing for it

Westlake Legal Group 4dfa4912-022410_Hoyer Top Dem lawmaker downplays Trump's impeachment, suggest media is pushing for it Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/politics fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 94886f65-1351-5ada-a6ee-6b3412aad0cf

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-MD, downplayed the push for President Trump‘s impeachment on Tuesday and suggested it’s the media that’s actually fanning the flames.

During an appearance on CNN, Hoyer was asked if his stance on impeachment has shifted since the release of the Mueller report in April. At the time, he said impeachment was “not worthwhile.”

CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer then asked why impeachment may be “worth while” now versus April, noting that many in the party are ramping up pressure to impeach the president, but Hoyer pushed back.

“Wolf, I know you and other reporters keep asking and they want us to say we’re for impeachment,” Hoyer told “The Situation Room” anchor. “What we are for is continuing our investigations, making sure that the administration gives us the information we are constitutionally authorized to receive.”

Hoyer echoed Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, saying they will go “where the facts” take them. Blitzer, however, clarified that he wasn’t pushing for anything.

“I just want to point out, I’m not asking you to do anything or support anything, I’m just asking some questions, trying to get precise information,” Blitzer defended himself.

Hoyer’s comments came after South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the third-highest-ranking Democrat in the House, said in an interview Sunday that he believes impeachment proceedings ultimately will be launched against Trump at some point in the future. He suggested Democrats are already laying the groundwork in Congress.

“I think we’ve already begun,” Clyburn said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”  “We’ve got all of these committees doing their work, we’re having hearings.”

CNN guest questions why Trump ‘picked on’ UK’s ‘two most famous people of color’ in Meghan Markle and Sadiq Khan

Westlake Legal Group Markle-Trump-Khan_Getty-AP-Getty CNN guest questions why Trump 'picked on' UK's 'two most famous people of color' in Meghan Markle and Sadiq Khan Joseph Wulfsohn fox-news/world/world-regions/united-kingdom fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article a32f68ca-3ead-5131-9f10-c2f56c7a7e98

CNN commentator Paul Begala questioned why President Trump “picked on” two of the United Kingdom’s most prominent “people of color” in the days before his state visit.

Ahead of his transatlantic trip, Trump made headlines with comments about both London Mayor Sadiq Khan and Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle. The president responded to a blistering op-ed Khan wrote slamming the president by calling the mayor a ‘stone cold loser’ and compared him to New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.

He also — during an interview with “The Sun” newspaper — said he did not know Markle had made “nasty” comments about him after being presented with negatives remarks she previously made. In the same interview, Trump expressed well wishes to her as one of the newest members of the Royal family.

During a CNN panel, Begala began by calling Trump’s “obsession” with Khan a “great mystery,” only to then suggest something else was potentially at play.

“There’s 67 million people in Great Britain, one of our very closest allies in the whole world,” Begala said. “Not only did he pick Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, he picked on the Duchess of Sussex, who is an American… They are the two most famous people of color in Great Britain. It’s very interesting to me when he picks his fights and his enemies.”

The former Clinton advisor also called it “interesting” that Trump hasn’t attacked former London mayor Boris Johnson, the British conservative leader who may become the next prime minister, but was previously very critical of Trump before he was president, arguing that the criticism from the “Muslim mayor of London” is “nothing” compared to Johnson.

Pro-Trump panelist Steve Cortes slammed Begala, calling it “totally irresponsible” for suggesting there was a “racial component” to Trump’s attacks, but the liberal pundit doubled down.

“Boris Johnson has insulted the president worse and today snubbed Donald Trump,” Begala continued.

“President Trump said ‘I think Johnson would be a good prime minister,’ he wanted to meet with Boris Johnson. Johnson snubbed President Trump — much worse than anything Sadiq Khan is doing. Again, one of these things is not like the other. Why do you pick with a fight with the Muslim mayor but you don’t say anything about the rightwing white guy?”
