President Trump Ends Asylum Protections For Most Central American Migrants At U.S.-Mexico Border – The Hill
.

.
The Trump administration is moving to end asylum protections for most Central American migrants, the Departments of Justice and Homeland Security announced Monday.

According to text of the rule set to publish in the Federal Register on Tuesday, asylum seekers who pass through another country before reaching the United States will be ineligible for asylum when they reach the southern border.

The move marks an acceleration in the Trump administration’s efforts to reduce the number of migrants crossing the U.S. border with Mexico and has the potential to considerably reduce the number of asylum claims…

Pew Research: Average Illegal Alien Has Lived In U.S. For 15 Years – Breitbart

The latest research by Pew Research Center reveals that, of the roughly 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S., the average illegal alien has lived in the country for 15 years – imposing an enormous financial burden on American taxpayers.

In 2000, the average illegal alien lived in the U.S. for about 7.2 years. Today, the average time that an illegal alien lives in the country has more than doubled just two decades later.

“In 2017, only 20% of unauthorized immigrant adults lived in the U.S. for five years or less, down from 30% a decade earlier,” Pew analysts write. “About two-thirds of unauthorized immigrants have been in the U.S. for more than 10 years; a decade earlier, less than half had.”

In the U.S. workforce, there are at least 7.6 million illegal aliens holding American jobs that would have otherwise gone to American citizens and legal immigrants. This is more than double the number of illegal aliens who were in the U.S. workforce in 1995 when just 3.6 million held American jobs…

Austin’s Mayor Takes West Coast Junket To ‘Learn’ How To Fail Bigger – PJ Media

It’s generally wise to study solutions to a problem and assess the successes and failures before taking a vote on it and putting a policy in place. But no one who has observed Austin’s mayor or city council over the last few years would look to them for wisdom.

On June 20, 2019 the Austin City Council voted to allow the homeless to camp out in public areas. That policy went into effect on July 1, an unusually short time-frame for such a sweeping public policy hit the streets. Austin’s media, homeowners and business leaders barely had time to blink.

Brain Implant Restores Partial Vision To Blind People – The Guardian

Partial sight has been restored to six blind people via an implant that transmits video images directly to the brain.

Some vision was made possible – with the participants’ eyes bypassed – by a video camera attached to glasses which sent footage to electrodes implanted in the visual cortex of the brain.

University College London lecturer and Optegra Eye Hospital surgeon Alex Shortt said it was a significant development by specialists from Baylor Medical College in Texas and the University of California Los Angeles.

“Previously all attempts to create a bionic eye focused on implanting into the eye itself. It required you to have a working eye, a working optic nerve,” Shortt told the Daily Mail.

“By bypassing the eye completely you open the potential up to many, many more people. This is a complete paradigm shift for treating people with complete blindness. It is a real message of hope.”…

Another Immigration Coup For Trump: Guatemala Agrees To Harbor Thousands Of Asylum Seekers – PJ Media

Good news for the U.S. and for thousands of asylum seekers who show up at the U.S. border. An immigration official has told the New Yorker that as the result of a deal between the U.S. and Guatemala, “asylum seekers from any country who either show up at U.S. ports of entry or are apprehended while crossing between ports of entry could be sent to seek asylum in Guatemala instead.”

The U.S. currently has a “remain in Mexico” policy, where the Mexican government agreed to keep several thousand migrants there, even granting work permits so that the asylum seekers could live while waiting for their U.S. court date.

Currently, the backlog of asylum cases is nearing one million. Every single one of those asylum seekers is entitled to a hearing before an immigration judge.

Previously, the procedure was to simply give the asylum seeker a court date – now stretching out to five years or more – and let them go on their merry way, free to disappear into the interior of the U.S…

3 Helpful Tips For The Suffering Feminists Who Are Being Persecuted By Air Conditioning – Matt Walsh

Every year around this time, as the temperatures rise and the polar ice caps melt and planetary doom inches closer, our privileged and obviously bored society erupts into a debate about air conditioning.

If you are a healthy and sane person who doesn’t spend much time on the internet, you might be surprised to learn that air conditioning is the subject of any sort of debate. It is, after all, an objective good – a clear improvement over the alternative, which includes sweltering temperatures, sweaty bodies, heat exhaustion, and death.

Air conditioning joins the ranks of indoor plumbing and electricity as a net-positive modern invention that has made life healthier, better, and more comfortable for billions of people worldwide. You would have to be a world-class whiner to find any reason to complain about something so wondrous and useful as air conditioning.

Prosecutors Say Jeffrey Epstein Caught Witness Tampering, Sent $350,000 In Bribes – Big League Politics

New reports reveal prosecutors are accusing convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, who is facing new charges relating to child trafficking, of bribing prosecutors and tampering with witnesses in the days after a bombshell story published by The Miami Herald last November.

Epstein is accused by prosecutors of sending $350,000 to two possible co-conspirators in what the prosecutors say demonstrates a pattern of behavior that has been ongoing since 2002. Epstein was arrested last weekend with new charges of child trafficking, and if convicted faces up to 45 years in prison.

Accused child sex predator Jeffrey Epstein wired a total of $350,000 to a pair of possible co-conspirators just days after the publication of a newspaper story alleging he sexually abused dozens of underage girls, federal prosecutors said Friday.

“Massive Loss Of Life”: 3,500 Deaths As Simultaneous Ebola And Measles Outbreaks Hit Congo – Zero Hedge

Oklahoma Man Arrested In Stolen Car With Rattlesnake, Uranium And More, Authorities Say – Daily Caller

Law enforcement in Oklahoma made one heck of a discovery after pulling over a man and his female passenger for driving a vehicle with expired license tags, per authorities. It happened last month when an officer with the Guthrie police department pulled over Stephen Jennings and Rachel Rivera for a routine traffic stop.

“After running the license, the officer found Jennings was driving on an expired license and Rivera was a convicted felon in possession of a firearm,” Sgt. Anthony Gibbs told ABC News in a piece published Thursday.

Both people were then placed under arrest. But the real discovery came after law enforcement took the vehicle to be impounded because it didn’t have insurance and first discovered that the Ford explorer had been stolen. Then while authorities were searching the car they found a rattlesnake.

“So when the impound of the vehicle begins and they start moving compartments, here’s the rattlesnake in the backseat,” Gibbs shared…

Magic Wand Update: Prices Of Goods An The U.S. Did Not Rise At All Despite China Tariff Hike – Breitbart

The Trump administration’s trade policies are not raising prices for U.S. consumers. Prices for goods in the U.S. dropped 0.4 percent in June even as tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese imports rose from 10 percent to 25 percent, the Labor Department said Friday. Excluding the volatile food and energy categories, prices were unchanged from the prior month.

So who is paying for the tariffs? We know the U.S. government has collected billions in tariffs, so it is clear that someone is footing the bill. But keep in mind that when journalists and lobbyists claim, “tariffs are taxes on consumers,” this is inaccurate.

Tariffs are taxes, to be sure. But unlike a sales tax or a gas tax, consumers do not directly pay any tariffs…

Trump Deregulation Will Boost Household Income By $3,100, Report Finds – Daily Signal

The Trump administration deregulation efforts will raise incomes by about $3,100 per household over the next five to 10 years, and sharply reduce prices for consumers, according to a report released Friday by the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

The Council of Economic Advisers report is titled “The Economic Effects of Federal Deregulation Since January 2017: An Interim Report.”

“Wealthy” Chicago Households On Hook For $2 Million In Debt Each Under ‘Progressive Solution’ To Pension Crisis – Zero Hedge

Chicagoans are buried under so much pension debt it’s impossible to see how their city can avoid a fiscal collapse without major, structural reforms. The futility of paying down those debts becomes obvious when you try to figure out just who’s going to pay for it all.

The total amount of city, county and state retirement debt Chicagoans are on the hook for is $150 billion, based on Moody’s most recent pension data. Split that evenly across the city’s one million-plus households and you arrive at nearly $145,000 per household.

That’s an outrageous amount, but it would be a clean solution if each and every Chicago household could simply absorb $145,000 in government retirement debt. The problem is, most can’t.

One-fifth of Chicagoans live in poverty and nearly half of all Chicago households make less than $50,000 a year. It wouldn’t just be wrong to try and squeeze those Chicagoans further, but pointless. They don’t have the money…

DemoNazi-Run California Legislature Passes Bill To Put Trannies In Women’s Prisons, Even Rapists – The Federalist

While it should be obvious that women’s prisons are for convicted criminals who are female, California Senate Bill 132, sponsored by state Sen.

The bill demands that the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation ask prisoners their preferred pronouns and gender identity at intake, then house them accordingly. This means that a man need only say at intake that he is a woman to gain access to women’s prison. In passing this bill, California has turned its back on incarcerated women.

In describing the bill, the Legislative Council’s Digest states:

Spontaneous combustion of a manure pile on a farm likely sparked a 13,000-acre wildfire now burning out of control in northeastern Spain, authorities say.

Television reports showed horses incinerated in the blaze that rolled across the rural terrain, forcing the evacuation of at least 53 residents in Spain’s Catalonia region. Hundreds of sheep also died in the fire and smoke that drew more than 500 firefighters and soldiers to battle the flames, The Guardian reported.

The flames threatened nearly 50,000 acres in the area, said Miquel Buch, the regional interior minister, calling it the area’s worst wildfire in 20 years. “Let us be very aware that any irresponsibility can end up being a catastrophe,” Buch said in a tweet…

Acting DHS Chief Predicts Up To 25 Percent Drop In Border Crossings After New U.S.-Mexico Agreement – Fox News

The acting head of the Department of Homeland Security on Friday said that he expects the number of migrants apprehended at the border will be lower by up to 25 percent in June than in previous months after Mexico increased its enforcement measures.

“It’s become clear that over the past three weeks since the administration reached a new agreement with Mexico that we’ve seen a substantial increase in the number of interdictions on the Mexican southern border, and a sincere effort to address the transportation networks coming through Mexico,” Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan told reporters.

The U.S. and Mexico reached agreement this month on a deal that sees Mexico take “unprecedented steps to increase enforcement to curb irregular migration” in exchange for the U.S. dropping proposed sanctions on Mexican imports.

Female Captain Arrested After Rescue Ship Carrying 40 Migrants Rams Italian Border Force Boat – Daily Mail

The captain of a migrant-loaded German aid ship which rammed an Italian border force boat has been arrested.

An extraordinary standoff between the two vessels off the coast of the Mediterranean’s Lampedusa island was broken when Captain Carola Rackete, 31, plowed into the smaller motorboat which was blocking her ship from port.

Two weeks earlier, Ms Rackete and her crew rescued 40 migrants and had requested permission to drop them off on the tiny Italian-owned island. But the country’s anti-migrant interior minister Matteo Salvini refused to let them disembark on Lampedusa until other European Union countries agreed to take in the asylum-seekers

Five countries offered on Friday home the migrants but still the Italian government did not give permission for the the Dutch-flagged Sea-Watch 3 to disembark.

At dawn this morning, Ms Rackete, fed up, steamed towards the shore and in doing so smacked into the much smaller border force motorboat…

Acting DHS Chief ‘Sabotaged’ ICE Raids By Leaking Plan To Washington Post – Zero Hedge

Presidential contender Joe Biden is trying to make himself seem palatable for the radical socialist base of the Democratic Party to be its nominee to take on Trump in 2020, but his record – including blazing the trail for civil asset forfeiture nationally – is proving quite problematic.

Then-Senator Joe Biden introduced the Comprehensive Forfeiture Act in 1983 to give federal agents sweeping new powers to seize assets from private citizens before they were convicted of a crime.

The following year, the 1984 Comprehensive Crime Control Act supported by Biden got state and local law enforcement into the unconstitutional mix by creating the “equitable sharing” program to give them up to 80 percent of the moneys from assets seized by the feds, to further facilitate the practice across the nation.

Trump Cuts Obama’s Syrian Refugee Surge By More Than 60 Percent – Breitbart

President Trump has reduced the number of Syrian refugees entering the United States by more than 60 percent compared to former President Obama’s surge of Syrian nationals arriving in the country.

Since Trump’s inauguration, he has reduced the levels at which Syrian refugees are arriving in the U.S. Between January 20, 2017, and June 2019, only about 2,419 Syrian refugees have entered the country – nearly 97 percent of which are Muslim and 1.4 percent of which are Christians and Catholics.

Compare this level to Obama’s surge of Syrian refugees between January 20, 2014, and June 2016 when about 6,368 Syrian nationals were granted entry to the country. Almost 99 percent of the Syrian refugees admitted by the Obama administration during this period were Muslim and less than 0.8 percent were Christians and Catholics.

High School Mulls Spending $600,000 To Remove George Washington Murals Because They “Traumatize” Students – Gateway Pundit

The property, similar to another compound in New Mexico the group is now linked to where federal prosecutors say Wahhaj and four other suspects were training children to carry out deadly terror attacks on American soil.

FBI Assistant Director for the Counterterrorism Division Michael McGarrity told lawmakers on Capitol Hill there are 850 open domestic terrorism investigations, with 40% racially motivated violent extremism.

In the Alabama case the group may not have carried out an attack, but the remains of a child believed to belong to Wahhaj, who is being charged with kidnapping were also found on the property…

Poll: Brexit Party Will Win More Votes Than Labour And Conservatives Combined In European Elections, And Would Be Nearly Neck-And-Neck With The Tories In A General Election – Daily Mail

The Brexit Party will earn more votes than Labour and the Conservatives combined in the European Parliament elections, a new poll claims.

Nigel Farage’s new party is slated to be a formidable force in May’s upcoming ballot, predicted to score 34% of the vote – compared to Labour’s 21% and the Tories’ 11%, according to the latest Opinium poll for the Observer.

The strongest force among the anti-Brexit parties appears to be the Liberal Democrats, who are slated to win just 12% of votes – one point ahead of Theresa May’s party. The Greens would score just eight per cent in the European elections, followed by UKIP and the SNP on four per cent and Change UK on just three per cent, the data says…

Fugees Founder ‘Pras’ Charged With Funneling Fugitive Malaysian Billionaire’s Money To Obama’s 2012 Campaign – NJ

One of the founders of famed New Jersey rap group the Fugees was charged Friday with conspiring with a Malaysian billionaire to make and conceal foreign campaign contributions during the 2012 U.S. presidential election.

Prakazrel “Pras” Michel and fugitive Malaysian financier Jho Low were charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States government and for making foreign and conduit campaign contributions, according to a release from the U.S. Department of Justice.

The presidential candidate was referred to only as Candidate A in the indictment, but was identified in multiple reports as Barack Obama.

The object of the conspiracy was for Low to “gain access to, and potential influence with, Candidate A, and his administration,” with the help of Michel, the federal indictment said.

Michel also was charged with scheming to conceal material facts and two counts of making a false entry in a record in connection with the conspiracy…

Unless you do those two things, all the rest is window dressing.”…

The Narrative Descends Into Crisis As America Does Fine – Andrew Klavan

The disparity between the news and reality has become so great that it is news in itself. You only have to turn on the TV or pick up whatever you use for a newspaper to find out that America is in a crisis, and you only have to turn the TV off or put the newspaper down to bring that crisis to an end.

American journalists and Democrats – but I repeat myself – are now engaged in creating a fantasy world in hopes it will supplant the reality they can no longer bear.

I suppose this transformation of journalism into imaginative fiction was bound to happen sooner or later. All the elements were in place. One party – the Democrats – controls both the news industry and the entertainment industry.

The same party is convinced that human nature, moral truth and reality itself can be transformed by transforming the stories we tell about them. And for eight years, that party and its media tried to prove that point by telling us a story about Barack Obama…

What Could Possibly Go Wrong? AOC Wants A Government Bank Operated By The Post Office – Tyler O’Neil

Imagine a big government boondoggle with the disorganization of a poorly-run non-profit organization and “customer service” that treats customers like driver’s license applicants at the DMV. That’s how Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) wants banking to work.

America’s most infamous former bartender proposed this idea with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the runner-up for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

“We should have a not-for-profit public option for basic banking services, and we should be piloting these projects through the U.S. Postal Service,” Ocasio-Cortez said, apparently with no irony.

Trump Overhauls Crucial U.S. Appeals Courts At Record Pace: ‘It’s A Generational Change’ – Washington Times

The Senate confirmed Michael Park to be a judge on the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday, making him the 39th circuit court judge to be confirmed under President Trump in a process on a record pace that is steadily reshaping the bench.

Judge Park joins Joseph Bianco, confirmed earlier this week, on that bench, bringing the number of Republican-appointed active judges on the chief 2nd Circuit panel to six. With two more vacancies by this summer as judges take senior status, Mr. Trump will soon have a chance to flip control of the circuit, which currently has seven Democratic appointees.

Mr. Trump flipped the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals earlier this year, taking it from a 7-4 Democratic edge in judicial appointees in 2017 to a 7-6 Republican edge among active judges.

The circuit courts are below the Supreme Court but, because so few cases end up before the justices, the circuits are where many consequential cases are decided. That makes Republicans’ focus on circuit judge confirmations huge, both sides say…

China Tariffs Rise To 25% Even While Trade Talks Persist – Breitbart

The U.S. hiked tariffs on a basket of goods imported from China to 25 percent on Friday morning.

The new tariff rate, which applies to around $200 billion of Chinese goods previously subjected to a 10 percent tariff, took effect just hours after officials from the U.S and China wrapped up a “working dinner” to discuss a possible trade deal.

Around $50 billion of Chinese goods, mostly high-tech items used by businesses, were already tariffed at the 25 percent rate. An additional $320 million or so of imports from China has not yet been subject to the new duties although president Trump has said he plans to raise tariffs on those goods as well.

Last year, the U.S. government studied Chinese economic policy and concluded that the Asian nation was engaged in systematic theft of the intellectual property of U.S. companies. When the Trump administration said it would impose tariffs in response to the Chinese behavior, China cut off trade talks for months…

President Trump Revives National Program To Exclude Illegals From Jobs – Breitbart

Democrats, however, are protesting the new push to protect American families from illegal immigrants in the nation’s job market.

The so-called “no-match” letter warns employers that their employees’ claimed Social Security Numbers are suspect – and so allows the employers to minimize their legal risks by quietly firing the employees who do not have a right to work. The program was stopped by President Barack Obama mainly because it was so effective at warning employers.

Magic Wand Update: U.S. Creates 263,000 Jobs In April As Unemployment Falls To 49-Year Low – MarketWatch

The numbers: The U.S. created 263,000 new jobs in April to help drive the unemployment rate down to a 49-year low, the latest cue pointing to a rebound in the economy after a slow start in the new year.

The increase in hiring was concentrated at white-collar businesses, construction and health care. The only sector to suffer a big drawback was retail, whose employment fell for the third straight month.

The increase in new jobs easily topped the 213,000 forecast of economists surveyed by MarketWatch.

The unemployment rate, meanwhile, slipped to 3.6% from 3.8% in March, marking the lowest level since December 1969, the Labor Department said. The decline in April stemmed from nearly a half-million workers dropping out of the labor force, but by the any measure, layoffs and unemployment are scraping a 50-year low…

Ukrainian Embassy Confirms DNC Contractor Solicited Trump Dirt In 2016 – The Hill

The boomerang from the Democratic Party’s failed attempt to connect Donald Trump to Russia’s 2016 election meddling is picking up speed, and its flight path crosses right through Moscow’s pesky neighbor, Ukraine. That is where there is growing evidence a foreign power was asked, and in some cases tried, to help Hillary Clinton.

Naked Russian Man Tries To Board Plane, Claiming To Be More ‘Aerodynamic’ – Moscow Times

A naked man attempted to board a plane at Moscow’s Domodedovo Airport while shouting that clothes make him less aerodynamic, the REN TV television channel reported Saturday.

The man passed through the Ural Airlines flight’s registration before suddenly stripping off his clothes and running stark naked onto the jet bridge, eyewitnesses said.

UK Coup Erupts: Theresa May Cabinet In Revolt, Plotting Her Imminent Overthrow – Zero Hedge

Theresa May may have days, if not hours, left as prime minister of the UK following a full-blown cabinet coup on Saturday night as senior ministers moved to oust the UK prime minister and replace her with her deputy, David Lidington.

According to the Sunday Times, following a “frantic series of private telephone calls”, senior ministers agreed the prime minister must announce she is standing down, warning that she has become a toxic and “erratic” figure whose judgment has “gone haywire.”

The plotters reportedly plan to confront May at a cabinet meeting on Sunday and demand that she announces she is quitting. If she refuses, they will threaten mass resignations or publicly demand her head…

How To End Our National Nightmare: Probe Hillary Clinton Again – Michael Goodwin

Now that special counsel Robert Mueller has completed his investigation, it is tempting to breathe a sigh of relief and assume that our long national nightmare is over. Resist the temptation, the assumption is false.

We are not close to the end. Not by a long shot.

In fact, I believe the last two years, as traumatic as they were, will prove to be the easier part of the nightmare, because Mueller dealt only with whether Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign conspired with Russia to swing the election. Based on what we know so far, especially that no more indictments are coming, it appears that Mueller’s answer is no, there was no collusion or obstruction of justice.

If true, this is an enormous vindication for Trump, who insisted all along that he had done nothing wrong. Supporters were understandably in a celebratory mood, with some saying on Twitter that it felt like 2016 election night all over again…

Leftist Southern Povery Law Center Implodes: President And Legal Director Resign Amid Sexual Misconduct Scandal – Zero Hedge

Harvard Law Professor Alan Dershowitz: Comey Committed Fraud On FISA Court – WorldNetDaily

In light of new revelations, former FBI Director James Comey and the others who signed off on FISA warrants to spy on the 2016 Trump campaign should be held in contempt, contends Harvard emeritus law professor Alan Dershowitz.

Dershowitz, in an interview Thursday with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, was reacting to the Justice Department’s release of heavily redacted versions of FISA warrants. The documents show the DOJ and the FBI falsely attested to the FISA court four separate times that former British spy Christopher Steele was not the source of an article corroborating the anti-Trump “dossier” he wrote, the Gateway Pundit reported.

In fact, the House Intelligence Committee found that reporter Michael Isikoff’s only source for his Sept. 23, 2016, article was the dossier author.

Trump Blasts ‘Anti-Jewish’ Democrats For Skipping AIPAC Conference – Breitbart

New Evidence Indicates Cross-Sex Hormones Trigger Major Heart Problems – The Federalist

The Western world is engaged in a massive and almost unregulated experiment on children and young adults. As gender dysphoria – the feeling of being trapped in a body of the opposite sex – takes hold and ramps up, physicians such as the notorious Dr. Johanna Olson-Kennedy are administering medical treatments that can literally ruin young people’s lives.

These doctors assure desperate patients and families (and a gullible press) that the medical interventions are safe. But the wall of silence about the true consequences is developing cracks.

The transgender activist lobby is ever vigilant to suppress research findings that conflict with their claims, or at least to intimidate dissident researchers into silence. This occurred recently when Dr. Lisa Littman of Brown University published a study suggesting a psychological rather than physical basis for Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria (ROGD) – when a teenager suddenly decides he or she is actually of the opposite sex.

Appropriately cowed, Brown quickly withdrew publicity for the study…

Comments by Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Jim Clyburn and Rep. Rashida Tlaib display contempt for Jews – in Rep. Clyburn’s case, for victims of the Holocaust. Heavily Democratic legislatures in New York, Illinois and Virginia perpetuate the wanton destruction of human life by passing laws allowing abortion to the moment of birth.

In Virginia, Democratic Gov. Ralph Northam said a woman can choose whether a baby who survived a botched abortion should live. False flags are cynically organized to delude the unsuspecting and promote an agenda.

Amid Surge In Knife Violence, British Supermarket Chain Pulls Kitchen Knives Off Shelves – PJ Media

In the face of rising knife violence rates in the UK, supermarket chain Asda will no longer be selling individual kitchen knives. This comes on the heels of the company’s decision in 2016 to securely package all knives after a customer was stabbed inside a Poundland, another British grocery chain.

Trump To Cut $4 Billion In Domestic Programs, Elimination Of Legal Services Corporation – Washington Examiner

President Trump’s fiscal 2020 budget proposes a massive nearly $4 billion cut in programs the White House calls useless and bloated including the popular Legal Services Corporation that uses federal money to provide free legal help to the poor that the administration believes is a local issue.

Of 10 targeted programs, four would be eliminated, fulfilling a 2016 Trump campaign promise to kill wasteful agencies.

Many of programs and agencies have been sharply criticized for years for misusing American tax dollars, including for Netflix subscriptions. One, the Bureau of International Labor Affairs, helps unions in Colombia organize, said the White House.

The proposal also calls for the end of federal land buying to add to its ownership of 700 million acres, instead focusing on bolstering firefighting and national park restoration.

Leftist Nightmare Update: Researchers Estimate Over 100,000 Migrant Women Will Be Sexually Assaulted on Way To U.S. This Year – Breitbart

Crime data shows that roughly 2,600 migrants will be murdered and roughly 103,000 will be raped or assaulted during their 2019 migration to the United States, says an estimate prepared by Steven Kopits, president of Princeton Policy Advisors.

“We estimate 80,000 migrant women were raped or coerced into sex during 2018, rising to 103,000 on higher migrant numbers in 2019,” said a statement from Kopits, whose predictions of migration increases been repeatedly validated by the eventual numbers. “These are persons… Incidents could be up to 50% higher.”

Alongside the murder and rapes, Kopits predicted 34,000 kidnappings, 21,000 cases of forced labor trafficking, and 106,000 robberies during 2019.

Kopits argues that the massive level of brutality could be sharply reduced if the United States expanded the current blue-collar guest workers programs. For example, the H-2B program brings in roughly 80,000 guest workers from Jamaica, Mexico, Honduras, and many other countries for manual labor at resorts, hotels, restaurants and forestry firms…
