List of Companies, Amicus Brief Against Trump’s Sanctuary City Policy

The Senate defeated a GOP proposal based on President Donald Trump’s immigration framework.
The plan would have offered a path to citizenship for “Dreamers” and increased border security while also cutting legal immigration.
The vote was 39-60, with 60 votes needed for approval.

I say GOOD. It was fraught with loopholes and the actual number of illegals in question remained unknown.

Meanwhile, there is more going on with the whole sanctuary city thing. Hold on, you wont like this.

Guilty Pleas, Human Smuggling Network Ft. Hood

Primer:

BROWNSVILLE – A 51-year-old man in the U.S. illegally pled guilty to human smuggling charges.

Victoriano Zamora-Jasso is said to have supplied immigrants to 47-year-old Arnold Garcia, of Harlingen, who would then contact active-duty soldiers stationed at Fort Hood to help transport and deliver people in the county illegally further north.

The illegal operation took place from March to September of 2014.

The soldiers would conceal immigrants under their military gear to get through the immigration checkpoint in Sarita.

The Justice Department on Tuesday announced plans to appeal a judge’s ruling that blocked President Donald Trump from shuttering a program that gave protections and work permits to some people who entered the U.S. illegally as children.

In a ruling last week, San Francisco-based U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup ordered the administration to resume accepting renewal applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, better known as DACA. More here from Politico.

In Defiance, Governors Issues Pardons to Deportees

It is argued that the Democrats want the illegals to stay in country due in part to gaining their vote. There is truth to that for sure, yet advocacy organizations raise a LOT of money which is in the end more important to the Democrat base for campaign contributions.

Perhaps as a reminder it is prudent to mention that Obama led the charge for clemency and pardons as noted here.
