Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the outgoing White House press secretary, is seriously considering running for governor of Arkansas, according to three people who have spoken to her in recent days.
While Sanders and her associates have been quietly talking about the possibility for months, sometimes in jest, she has shown renewed interest in the prospect as she’s started contemplating her post-White House plans, the people said.
Sanders didn’t hold back while speaking with MSNBC on Tuesday when host Andrea Mitchell asked the Vermont Senator about President Trump’s declaration that he planned to live tweet the first Democratic debate next week.
“Look, he can tweet all that he wants to tweet, but let me just say this,” Sanders said in response. “You have a president who, despite what one of his supporters mentioned a moment ago, is, in fact, a pathological liar, he is a racist, he is a sexist, he is a homophobe, and he is a religious bigot.”
Suspecting they could prove the Russian hacking claim was false, lawyers representing Roger Stone requested the full Crowdstrike report on the DNC hack. When the DOJ responded to the Stone motion they made a rather significant admission. Not only did the FBI not review the DNC server, the FBI/DOJ never even saw the Crowdstrike report.
The State Department has confirmed that it has “issued 23 violations and 7 infractions incidents” pertaining to the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
President Donald Trump said Monday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will begin mass deportations of illegal immigrants starting next week.
The president indicated that ICE intends on attempting to remove the millions of illegal immigrants currently residing in the U.S. According to a Pew Research Center study released last week, 10.5 million “unauthorized” immigrants lived in the U.S. in 2o17.
“America in 2019 is California in the 1990s,” the governor continued. “The xenophobia, the nativism, the fear of ‘the other.’ Scapegoating. Talking down or past people. The hysteria. And so, we’re not going to put up with that. We are going to push back.”
California would be one of only four states imposing a tax on those who won’t or can’t obtain the kind of health insurance coverage the government requires. The state-imposed mandate would parallel the federal mandate which, in 2016, amounted to $695 per adult or 2.5 percent of yearly household income, whichever was higher. The tax is projected by Newsom to generate about $1 billion over three years.
Adding insult to injury, a portion of that $1 billion generated would go to provide healthcare coverage to people living in the country illegally.
Pedro Cervantes is charged with possessing with intent to distribute cocaine, methamphetamine and marijuana, as well as possessing a gun in furtherance of drug trafficking and possessing a gun while in the country illegally,” according to The Wichita Eagle.
A federal appeals court in California ordered an illegal alien who was captured during an immigration raid to be freed because the warrant used by U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) indicated only that agents were searching for employment records, not preparing a large operation involving mass arrests of unlawfully employed foreigners.
In one recent week, agents in the Border Patrol’s Del Rio sector stopped more than 500 African migrants found walking in separate groups along the arid land after splashing across the Rio Grande, children in tow. That is more than double the total of 211 African migrants who were detained by the Border Patrol along the entire 2,000-mile (3,200-kilometer) U.S.-Mexico border in the 2018 fiscal year.
Mexico’s government said it detained almost 800 illegal immigrants who were crammed in four trucks in eastern Mexico on June 15, one of the highest numbers detained by the country in recent months, following promises to step up efforts to curb illegal immigration.
