Deputy CBP commissioner says ‘targeted changes’ needed to address border crisis

Westlake Legal Group Charles-Payne-split Deputy CBP commissioner says 'targeted changes' needed to address border crisis fox-news/us/immigration/illegal-immigrants fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/your-world fox-news/politics/elections/house-of-representatives fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 3ca92512-4972-5d2f-9f8e-4cf8d76bbbca

The crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border is finally being accepted as such but Congress must allow for specific policy changes that will alleviate the turmoil, according to a Customs and Border Protection official.

The funding Congress approved is helping conditions but there is a long way to go until the border is secure and detainees are handled efficiently, CBP Deputy Commissioner Robert Perez claimed Friday on “Your World.”

“We have been, in CBP and the Department of Homeland Security, sounding the alarm on the overcrowding and the unprecedented migration crisis for the better part of 18 months,” he said.

“It’s universally accepted now that we do have a crisis.

“And now, we need targeted changes to the legal framework to get to the heart of the matter.”

In addition, Perez said his department needs help going after people he believes to be willing participants accentuating the crisis.

“Alien smuggling organizations are profiting off the back of this crisis — off the back of children by virtue of smuggling children and using them as virtual passports across the border… to profit their illegal endeavors.

“The targeted changes to the legal framework absolutely have to change to end this crisis.”

In regard to critiques from lawmakers who claim officials have been less than forthcoming about conditions on the border and have aggravated the situation, Perez said his officers have acted responsibly.

“We have been open and honest about that discussion,” he said.

“We’ve invited congressional delegations every month, multiple times… in addition to all of the oversight that we’ve had to our facilities so that they could see first hand the challenges we are facing.”

Ingraham: ‘Left’ trying to destroy what it means to be American

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6058160238001_6058162891001-vs Ingraham: 'Left' trying to destroy what it means to be American Victor Garcia fox-news/us/personal-freedoms/proud-american fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc d86e5bd6-034e-521f-a904-5490f095a7d4 article

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham addressed Thursday the agenda to “destroy” what it means to be American blasting the left for trying to take away the county’s identity.

“The historical purge that we are witnessing all over the country is part of a larger agenda. To destroy what it means to be American. And it’s getting more audacious by the day,” Ingraham said on “The Ingraham Angle” Thursday.

LAWRENCE JONES TALKS TO MINNESOTA RESIDENTS ABOUT COUNCIL NIXING PLEDGE

The Fox News host addressed a controversy in a Minnesota city involving the Pledge of Allegiance.

“In St. Louis Park, Minnesota, the geniuses on the city council there recently decided to ban the Pledge of Allegiance from town meetings. Their reason? To create a more welcoming environment to a diverse community. Oh, welcoming to everybody but Americans who actually love the pledge,” Ingraham said.

Ingraham took on members of the “left” who view America as “illegitimate.”

“The easiest path to social media start today is one where you take cheap swipes and America symbols and traditions,” she said.

Ingraham called these attacks on what it means to be American part of a “power grab” by those on the “left.”

“Our progress on racial issues is conveniently ignored by cynical actors who are, frankly, using these past horrors for a power grab and, they hope, a total reorganization of our society here and a massive wealth confiscation,” Ingraham said.

Ingraham warned that country would pay a price for not defending history.

“There is a price for surrendering your sovereignty and your identity and we are going to pay it if we don’t defend our history and our traditions,” Ingraham said.

Graham: Republicans likely to take back the House in 2020

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6058146497001_6058147997001-vs Graham: Republicans likely to take back the House in 2020 Victor Garcia fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/politics/2020-house-races fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc article 84e8f880-0b4e-5101-8949-ae76a3a04dcb

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. advised President Trump to “be quiet” and show up for reelection in 2020, responding to policies that Democrats are proposing and infighting within their party.

“If I’m President Trump I’d go to Florida and show up next November and get reelected,” Graham said on “Hannity” Thursday.

Graham expressed optimism for Trump in the 2020 elections. He offered unsolicited advice to the president and said “be quiet” and let the Democrats continue their talk of decriminalizing border crossing and free health care for illegal immigrants.

“This is insane. You know it’s insane,” Graham said.

Graham also responded to infighting within the Democratic Party, particularly between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

The South Carolina senator said that Republicans were likely to take back the  House in 2020

“I think Republicans are more likely to take the House because of this breakdown because there are 31 Democrats that hold congressional seats where President Trump won their congressional district,” Graham said.

“What does it mean to these 31? If you cross AOC and the ‘fab four’ you’re going to get a primary. And if you vote with them you’re going to lose in the general election. So the biggest beneficiary of this will be the Republican Party and President Trump because the policies these four people are pushing are so out of the mainstream.”

Kevin McCarthy: AOC and socialist Dems are ‘taking over’ the party from Pelosi, moderates

Westlake Legal Group McCarthy-Ingraham_AP-FOX Kevin McCarthy: AOC and socialist Dems are 'taking over' the party from Pelosi, moderates fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/politics/regulation/media fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives/democrats fox-news/person/nancy-pelosi fox-news/person/kevin-mccarthy fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz ba343312-cc08-5ca3-b2d7-376b10647fec article

The ongoing dispute between Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., isn’t just a feud — it’s part of an intraparty war, according to House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

The clash also shows the left wing of the party is becoming more prevalent, McCarthy claimed Thursday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

“This is internal war. This isn’t a family feud, this is beyond what anyone thinks,” he said.

“They’re challenging these Democrats in primaries,” he said of the progressives’ actions against moderates in the party.

“The socialist Democrats are taking over. Not only are they taking over the party, they’re going to take on any Democrat in that process as well.”

Referring to Ocasio-Cortez, McCarthy said the Democrat — whose district includes parts of the Bronx and Queens in New York City — is a strong voice in the party, but only until another party member stands up to her.

“She’ll fight until you fight back,” he said. “Then, she wants to play a race card or something.”

PELOSI RESPONDS TO AOC SLAM, SAYS CAUCUS HAS HER BACK FOR CONDEMNING CHIEF OF STAFF’S ‘OFFENSIVE’ TWEET

Ocasio-Cortez’s disagreement with caucus leadership led to a rebuke from a longtime House member from Kansas City.

Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo., added to the mounting Democratic criticism of Ocasio-Cortez, slamming her “inappropriate” suggestion that Pelosi is singling out the New Yorker and her “squad” of fellow freshman because of their race.

Speaking to Fox News on Thursday, Clay hammered Ocasio-Cortez’s suggestion.

“It was such a weak argument to say she was being picked on and that four women of color were being picked on by the speaker,” he said. “It tells you the level of ignorance to American history on their part as to what we are as the Democratic Caucus.

“It is so inappropriate. So uncalled for. It does not do anything to help with unity. It was unfair to Speaker Pelosi.”

Clay continued his broadside, saying the comment exposed how much Ocasio-Cortez and Reps. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn.; Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich.; and Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., have to learn when it comes to being “effective legislators.”

“It’s going to take a process of maturing for those freshman members,” Clay said. “They will have to learn to be effective legislators.”

Rudy Giuliani: New video of Trump accuser whose case was dismissed shows ‘people feel empowered to say anything they want’

Westlake Legal Group Rudy-Giuliani-Getty Rudy Giuliani: New video of Trump accuser whose case was dismissed shows 'people feel empowered to say anything they want' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article ab9b9cb6-1a02-5958-b637-5631f3159be5

Video of an encounter between President Trump and a former campaign staffer that was the subject of a now-dismissed lawsuit shows people feel emboldened to lodge claims, according to Rudy Giuliani.

Many of those people often fail to apologize for spreading claims of any sort against the president, Giuliani, an attorney for the president, claimed Thursday on “Hannity.”

“Luckily, we have the footage because some people would just believe it,” the former New York City mayor said, referring to video released this week of the encounter in question between Trump and Alva Johnson. “I think it’s because a lot of the media has created this hysteria about the president.”

JUDGE DISMISSES LAWSUIT OF FORMER CAMPAIGN STAFFER WHO ACCUSED TRUMP OF FORCIBLY KISSING HER

Judge William Jung of the Middle District of Florida dismissed Johnson’s lawsuit in June, but video of the kiss was released by Trump’s lawyers on Wednesday.

Giuliani said he believed the case was indicative of people spreading unsubstantiated claims against the president.

“The whole Mueller investigation was infused with that. … They printed the wildest, craziest lies, and of course they had never apologized for it,” he claimed. “People feel empowered to say anything they want.”

According to Politico, Jung tossed out Johnson’s complaint  last month and said in his 15-page order that “the complaint presents a political lawsuit, not a tort and wages lawsuit.”

Jung added, “If plaintiff wishes to make a political statement or bring a claim for political purposes, this is not the forum.”

Johnson was director of outreach and coalitions for the Alabama GOP primary in 2016 and later did similar work in Florida.

The former staffer told MSNBC in February that in August 2016, she briefly interacted with Trump on an RV during a campaign stop in Florida. Before he stepped off the vehicle to speak with campaign interns, she told him to “Go kick ass” and said she hadn’t seen her family in a very long time. Johnson said Trump held her hand and began getting closer.

“This accusation is absurd on its face. This never happened and is directly contradicted by multiple highly credible eyewitness accounts,” then-White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in February.

Hannity: The Dems are finally starting to listen to me

Fox News’ Sean Hannity spoke Thursday about what he saw as top Democrats’ apparently shifting feelings about former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s scheduled testimony next week.

According to the AP, Democrats are now beginning to listen to Hannity,” he said.

“They’re worried about next Wednesday’s hearing — I’m excited about it.

“Those questions have all been thoroughly answered in the exhaustive, frankly political, poorly written… 448-page report.”

The “Hannity” host added that no matter their sudden concerns, some Democrats still wanted to beat the drum of collusion between President Trump and Russia, using Mueller’s testimony to advance their cause.

HANNITY: DEMS ABUSING THEIR POWER, GUILTY OF ‘PRESIDENTIAL HARASSMENT’

“In their desperate effort to keep their Russia collusion hoax, their conspiracy theories alive for as long as possible, Chairman Jerry Nadler of the Judiciary Committee, and Intel Chair Adam ‘The Cowardly’ Schiff, are forcing Bob Mueller to testify in public on Capitol Hill.”

Hannity claimed Rep. Schiff, D-Calif., in his capacity as House Intelligence Committee chairman, has been overseeing yet another investigation that was needlessly badgering Trump.

“The cowardly Schiff is conducting a separate sixth investigation,” he said, labeling the work of the California lawmaker’s colleague, “Jerry’s subpoena party.”

He continued: “This is harassment. They should be caring about what is a desperate situation at the border.

“They’re not doing anything to help the American people. They don’t have any agenda that’s going to solve our problems.”

In light of that allegation, Hannity said Democrats have been content instead to point to Trump and accuse him of collusion despite the Russia investigation’s conclusions.

“It’s a card that they keep playing over and over again — Russia, Russia, Russia,” he said.

While Mueller is at the Capitol, Republicans should take the opportunity to grill him themselves, Hannity advised.

“Republicans should focus on the litany of what are unanswered questions that we have previewed on this program last night,” he said. “The political bias, the prosecutorial misconduct, politics, conflicts of interest.”

Trey Gowdy: Mueller does not want to ‘participate’ in keeping the Russia story alive

Former congressman Trey Gowdy said Thursday on “The Story with Martha MacCallum” that Democrats want to keep the Russia investigation story “alive,” but Special Counsel Robert Mueller does not want to be involved in that.

Previewing next week’s hearings, Gowdy said: “They’re bringing him, they want to keep the story alive. He’s not going to participate in that. He’s not going to answer anything outside the four corners of his report.

“So this is just to have a day-long series. The focus will be on the questions. Mueller is not going to give you any interesting answers, I have quizzed him before.”

Mueller is set to testify on July 17.

TRUMP ATTY JAY SEKULOW: HERE’S THE QUESTIONS MUELLER MUST BE ASKED ON JULY 17

Mueller’s report found no proof that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia to influence the election, despite multiple outreach efforts by Russians, and did not reach a conclusion on whether President Trump obstructed justice.

Gowdy explained the type of response Mueller would give next week to MacCallum.

“And this will be his answer. Why didn’t I look into anything else? ‘Because I wasn’t asked to.’ When did I conclude there was no collusion? ‘When I interviewed the last witness.’ And that’ll be that,” Gowdy said.

The former congressman reiterated that nothing would be gained intellectually from the hearing next week.

“Mueller is a Marine, former FBI director. He’s not… He is going to answer the question maybe and nothing more,” Gowdy said.

“You will learn nothing next Wednesday except a lot of my former colleagues think they’re great questioners and think that they should have their five minutes.”

Liz Cheney: Pelosi-AOC dispute indicates ‘unraveling’ of the Democratic Party

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s, D-N.Y., and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi‘s latest disagreement is indicative of the Democratic Party‘s drastic shift to the left, according to Rep. Liz Cheney, R-Wyo.

Ocasio-Cortez’s claim she and other freshman progressives are being “singled out” as “newly-elected women of color” shows Rep. Pelosi’s, D-Calif. attempts to quell dissent within her ranks is not working, Cheney claimed Thursday on “The Story.”

“I think what you’re watching is really the unraveling of the Democratic Party as we’ve known it in the past,” she said.

“You have a situation where you have this very radical wing of the House Democrats, and the Speaker has attempted many times to keep everybody under control by, in the past, moving very far left.

“You see now that’s not working for her.”

The House Republican Conference chairwoman added she believed Democrats have, “become a party of socialists.”

“They are advocating this far-left set of positions,” she said.

In that regard, Cheney claimed Pelosi recognizes far-left policy proposals are not within the mainstream of American politics and could pose an electoral problem for her party.

“She’s in a very difficult situation,” she said.

“She’s dealing with a situation where she’s being dragged very far to the radical left fringe.”

Cheney also claimed Republicans do not invoke race or ethnicity when engaging in a dispute among their ranks.

“We all have an obligation and responsibility to our constituents… to make arguments… based on substance,” she said.

Earlier Thursday, Pelosi stood her ground in response to Ocasio-Cortez claiming the speaker has been disrespectful to several minority lawmakers, saying she has the backing of her caucus and defending her handling of the rabble-rousing freshman ‘squad’ the Bronx Democrat leads.

Notably, Pelosi all but confirmed that a warning she delivered to rank-and-file lawmakers a day earlier about using social media for attacks on fellow Democrats was prompted by Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff.

Asked about her ongoing spat with the New York lawmaker, Pelosi acknowledged how she recently addressed — “at the request of my members” — an “offensive tweet that came out of one of the member’s offices” that compared centrist Democrats to segregationists. That tweet was authored and then deleted by Ocasio-Cortez’ chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti.

“Our members took offense at that,” Pelosi said, claiming her comments received a positive response.

Juan Williams: Trump ‘scaremongering,’ using executive order to ‘go around Supreme Court’ on census

Westlake Legal Group Williams-Trump_FOX Juan Williams: Trump 'scaremongering,' using executive order to 'go around Supreme Court' on census fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/politics/executive/white-house fox-news/politics/executive/law fox-news/politics/executive/cabinet fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 2a3ed5bc-01f6-52f7-82c0-8843520d407d

President Trump’s executive order asking federal agencies to aid in the accounting of the citizen and non-citizen population is a scare tactic, according to Juan Williams.

Trump issued the proclamation to circumvent the Supreme Court after it temporarily blocked the administration from adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census, Williams claimed Thursday on “The Five.”

“People are scaremongering and that is what this president is doing,” he said.

“Hillary Clinton said today this is weaponizing fear and bigotry — and I could not agree more.

TRUMP, ‘NOT BACKING DOWN’ IN EFFORT TO COUNT CITIZENS AMID CENSUS FIGHT, ANNOUNCES EXECUTIVE ORDER

“The Supreme Court of the United States has said ‘no’. He is going around the Supreme Court, around the Congress.”

The host added the presence of a citizenship question could make some people shy away from responding to the Constitutionally-mandated decennial count.

“It intimidates people who should be participating in our census to find how many people live in our country,” he said, alleging it could “depress” accounting of “non-whites.”

Expressing disagreement, host Jesse Watters said the citizenship question first appeared on the census when James Monroe was president.

“They’ve been doing this since the 1820s,” he said, adding he thought critics of the question are failing to differentiate between legal and illegal immigrants.

At the White House Thursday afternoon, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Attorney General William Barr flanked Trump as he announced the order.

The move would make use of “vast” federal databases and free up information sharing among various federal agencies concerning who they know is in the country, Trump said.

“Today I’m here to say we are not backing down in our effort to determine the citizenship status of the United States population,” the president told reporters, after slamming Democrats he said were playing politics with national security.

He called legal opposition to adding a citizenship question to the 2020 census “meritless.”

Speaking after Trump, Barr said the information collected via the executive order could be useful in determining the makeup of the Electoral College and congressional apportionment.

Former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) director Tom Homan blamed Democrats Wednesday for prolonging the border crisis saying their “hatred” for President Trump is more important to them than lives of illegal immigrant children.

While appearing on “The Ingraham Angle,” host Laura Ingraham asked Homan if Democrats wanted to prolong the issues at the southern U.S.-Mexico border.

“Do you agree that the Democrats seem to want this crisis to go on?” Ingraham asked before adding, “I know that seems like a horrible thing to say.”

“I’ve said that for a year. They absolutely do,” Homan responded.

“They want this president to fail on border security because their hatred of this president and their drive to see him fail is more important to them than the lives of women and children,” Homan added.

He then defended Border Patrol agents against the media’s coverage saying that they are not mistreating migrants.

“The men and women of the Border Patrol are doing an outstanding job… over half are Latino descent, most of them are mothers and fathers themselves. They’re not making women drink out of toilets and they’re not molesting children,” Homan said.

“Is anybody talking about the four thousand men and women and children that were saved by the Border Patrol this year?”

Homan blasted Congress again saying flatly they are responsible for children in detention centers.

“Congress’ failure created this whole mess. They can look in the mirror if they want to blame someone for children being in overcrowded detention placement, it’s their fault,” he said.
