Trump lays groundwork for mass deportations
DHS will hire 10,000 new immigration officers and reverse a number of Obama administration policies. By JOSH DAWSEY and TED HESSON

President Donald Trump pledged during his campaign to create a deportation force. Now, he’s equipped federal immigration agents with the tools to potentially remove millions of immigrants from the country.

The Department of Homeland Security issued a pair of guidance memos Tuesday that gives federal immigration agents wide latitude to arrest and detain undocumented immigrants and legal immigrants with criminal records.

The memos create a blueprint for how to enact two Trump executive orders, one that deals with interior enforcement and another that deals with border security.

Serious criminals will still be a top target for federal immigration officers. But the priorities will be greatly expanded to include undocumented immigrants charged with crimes or those who have committed acts that could constitute a chargeable offense.

The Trump administration’s deportation push will not be limited to undocumented immigrants. The memo stresses that all “removable aliens” could be subject to immigration enforcement under the new guidelines.

Trump’s border wall will cost up to $21.6 billion, Homeland Security internal report says

  • A new internal U.S. Department of Homeland Security report evaluating the logistics of Trump’s border wall may be a rude awakening.
  • The document, first reported on by Reuters, estimates the wall would cost the government up to $21.6 billion and take nearly the entire length of Trump’s term to construct.
  • Officials are expected to present Trump’s administration with their findings — which include blueprints for a three-phase plan to close off the border by the end of 2020 — in a few days. After that, it’s up to Trump and his advisers whether they will honor the department’s recommendations. Read more (2/9/17 7:42 PM)

Trump's budget-busting immigration crackdown
A back-of-the-envelope calculation based on government figures shows how the costs could quickly add up. By TED HESSON

President Donald Trump’s border wall could cost $20 billion, and his directive to crack down on border security could increase federal government spending by $13 billion a year.

It’s not clear where he’s going to get the money.

Trump said Wednesday, without elaborating, that his plan would “save billions and billions of dollars.” But it’s likely he’ll need Congress to agree to a massive spending increase if he wants to fully implement his vision.

The president has some authority to move dollars around within existing budgets. But his plan could cost more than the entire 2016 combined budgets for Immigration and Customs Enforcement and Customs and Border Protection, which ran to $19.4 billion.

John Sandweg, who was acting director of ICE in 2013 and 2014, told POLITICO that the cost and logistics of parts of Trump’s executive orders are infeasible.

“I just view this as a political document more than anything,” Sandweg said of the orders.

A back-of-the-envelope calculation based on government figures shows how the costs could quickly add up.

A single-layer fence on the border — not even a solid wall — could run to $6.5 million per mile, according to a yet-to-be-released report by the Government Accountability Office.

The Limits of Sovereign Immunity

As a matter of law, government officials are immune from liability in the performance of their duties. This shields the government from litigation, a nice perk that many businesses would love as well. But when Attorney General Holder lets automatic weapons fall into the hands of Mexican Drug Cartels, is that the performance of his duties or is it the grossly negligent inaction with foreseeable consequences: the death of many anonymous Mexican citizens and Border Patrol officer Brian Terry. In past centuries, the sovereign may have been immune from suits, but his agents were not. The actions on behalf of the sovereign and crown may have imposed civil liabilities on the individual carrying out those actions. Eric Holder may never be held responsible, but his actions should cause a reappraisal of a policy which gives a wide latitude of negligence to state officials.

Trump welcomes Trudeau to his America

‘We have problems that a lot of people have no idea how bad they are,’ the U.S. president says.

By NOLAN D. MCCASKILL

President Donald Trump and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stood together Monday as allies representing neighboring nations that seemed worlds apart.

The U.S., as Trump portrayed it, is a country that faces grave danger unless or until it can secure its borders. “We have problems that a lot of people have no idea how bad they are, how serious they are — not only internationally but when you come right here,” Trump said at a news conference alongside Trudeau.

That position was sharply at odds with Trudeau’s rosier, welcoming posture for Canada. “We have welcomed refugees from Syria. We have been very successful, but we have always taken our responsibility towards security very seriously,” Trudeau said.

Trump has drawn widespread attention for his unusual calls with foreign leaders in recent weeks. Monday’s news conference marked an opportunity for a new message alongside a close ally after more contentious engagement with Mexico and Australia and courts blocking his controversial travel ban.

Someone Please SHUT DOWN Trump's Twitter Account!

(Reuters) - A day after falsely suggesting there was an immigration-related security incident in Sweden, President Donald Trump said on Sunday his comment was based on a television report he had seen.

Trump, who in his first weeks in office has tried to tighten U.S. borders sharply for national security reasons, told a rally on Saturday that Sweden was having serious problems with immigrants.

“You look at what’s happening last night in Sweden,” Trump said. “Sweden. Who would believe this? Sweden. They took in large numbers. They’re having problems like they never thought possible.”

No incident occurred in Sweden and the country’s baffled government asked the U.S. State Department to explain.

“My statement as to what’s happening in Sweden was in reference to a story that was broadcast on @FoxNews concerning immigrants & Sweden,” Trump said in a tweet on Sunday.

Seriously? OH. MY. GOD! Trump is such a dumbass! Someone please shut down his Twitter Account! Before the World knows it… Trump’s going to start WWIII because he’ll be watching TV and ‘White House Down’ will be on FX or AMC and Trump will push the proverbial “Red Button”… Tweet the ‘US Is Under Attack’ and that will be the end of civilization as we know it! Good Lord this man is such a dumb fuck!!!!!

We’re actually taking people that are criminals, very very hardened criminals in some cases with a tremendous track record of abuse and problems, and we’re getting them out, and that’s what I said I would do. I’m just doing what I said I would do when we won by a very very large Electoral College vote.”“


I

do not see an actual answer in that answer

“ President Trump is so desperate for legitimacy that he suggested the US/Canadian border is not secure, and that he is making it secure. “


if you wanna build a wall on the largest land border in the entire world, go right ahead pal

but we’re not paying for it

TRUMP: 'Drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars'

(US President Donald Trump at a news conference at the White House on Thursday.REUTERS/Kevin Lamarque)

President Donald Trump gave a press conference at the White House on Thursday afternoon during which he said that the US was becoming a “drug-infested nation” and that “drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars.”

“We’ve ordered the Department of Homeland Security and Justice to coordinate a plan to destroy criminal cartels coming into the United States with drugs,” Trump said in the East Room.

“We’re becoming a drug-infested nation,” Trump continued. “Drugs are becoming cheaper than candy bars. We’re not going to let it happen any longer.”

Trump claimed his administration had “undertaken the most substantial border-security measures in a generation.”

“We’re now in the process of beginning to build a promised wall on the southern border,” he said.

Trump’s candy-bar claim could be true — depending on the type of candy being purchased. The wholesale price of marijuana in states like Colorado that have legalized recreational use has tumbled to less than half of prelegalization totals.
