Trump’s ‘shi**hole’ insult demands censure

  Martin Luther King Jr. Day in America is supposed to be a celebration of the civil rights giant. But as we approach the holiday, there is an undeniable truth. The American president is a racist, having branded himself a potty-mouth pol by use of the term "shithole" to describe people from poor countries, specifically immigrants from Africa, Haiti and El Salvador. Racist. Disgusting. And considering what the Philippine president has said about Obama, practically Dutertian. But if Trump's pussy grabbing rhetoric wasn't enough to sink his candidacy in 2016, why do you think Trump's latest racist insult will faze him? Still, the president has gone too far. His ra...Keep on reading: Trump’s ‘shi**hole’ insult demands censure.....»»

Trump comments highlight racial impact of migration platform

DENVER --- For years, a movement to limit the number of migrants into the US and end a system that favors family members of legal residents has had to fend off criticism that it's as a poorly veiled attempt to produce a whiter America. Then its most prominent supporter told members of Congress in the Oval Office this week that the US needs fewer immigrants from Haiti and Africa and more from places like Norway. President Donald Trump's use of a vulgar term to describe African countries triggered widespread condemnation, and left the small cluster of immigration hard-line groups whose agenda Trump has embraced scrambling to distance themselves from the president.

Who’d prefer their country to Trump’s US? Norwegians would

STAVANGER, Norway --- Norwegians generally live longer than Americans. There's a generous safety net of health care and pensions. And although it's pricey, the country last year was named the happiest on Earth. President Donald Trump says the United States should take in more Norwegians, but is it any wonder that more Americans are going the other way? The country of 5.2 million people that seldom makes global headlines awoke Friday to the news that Trump wanted to have more immigrants from Norway, rather than Haiti and countries in Africa that he disparaged with a vulgar term. The comments came after Trump met Wednesday with Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg in Washingt...Keep on reading: Who’d prefer their country to Trump’s US? Norwegians would.....»»

Melania Trump says she loves Trump, ignores cheating rumors

WASHINGTON --- Melania Trump says she loves President Donald Trump and has "much more important things to think about" than allegations he cheated on her with a porn star, a Playboy Playmate or anyone else.

"I know people like to speculate and media like to speculate about our marriage and circulate the gossip," she said. "But I understand the gossip sells newspapers, magazines ... and, unfortunately, we live in this kind of world today." She insisted allegations of her husband's infidelities are not a concern.

Trump wants to deny green cards to legal immigrants who used some welfare programs

LOS ANGELES -- The White House may go ahead with a rule change that would make it harder for legal immigrants to gain permanent residency if they have ever used certain popular welfare programs. The Trump administration for months has been reviewing the proposal that would curb permanent residency and reports indicate an official announcement of the policy may come soon. The move would be among the latest made by White House adviser Stephen Miller who has long been working to restrain legal immigration. And because the underlying law would remain the same, such a move would not require congressional approval. Currently, immigrants are allowed to have their residency status r...Keep on reading: Trump wants to deny green cards to legal immigrants who used some welfare programs.....»»

In wake of critical book, Trump calls ex-staffer ‘a lowlife’

BRIDGEWATER, New Jersey --- President Donald Trump has one word to describe former White House staffer and fellow reality-TV star Omarosa Manigault Newman: "Lowlife." Manigault Newman claims in an upcoming book, "Unhinged," that Trump used racial slurs on the set of his reality show "The Apprentice." She also says she later concluded that he is a racist and a bigot. On Saturday, reporters asked Trump during an event at his golf club in New Jersey if he felt betrayed by Manigault Newman. He responded: "Lowlife. She's a lowlife." Manigault Newman was a contestant on Trump's "The Apprentice" reality show and later served as a senior adviser to the president.

US federal judge reaffirms ruling that DACA must resume

WASHINGTON --- A federal judge has reaffirmed his ruling that the Trump administration must resume a program that has shielded hundreds of thousands of young immigrants from deportation. The ruling has no immediate effect because US District Judge John D. Bates in Washington gave the administration 20 days to decide if it would want to appeal and ask that it be put on hold while trying to get it overturned. In April, the judge gave the government 90 days to restate its argument to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. In a 25-page ruling on Friday, he said the administration failed to change his mind. Two nationwide injunctions earlier this year applied onl...Keep on reading: US federal judge reaffirms ruling that DACA must resume.....»»

3 hurdles to clear on the road to U.S. immigration reform

Immigration is one of the most hotly debated issues of our time, often dividing Republicans and Democrats as reform measures are discussed. Rather than build a wall along the border as President Donald Trump, for economic reasons alone, it's time to put politics aside and build consensus for immigration reform. As a conservative, free-market proponent, Mexican American lawyer and Trump supporter, I'm passionate about positive immigration reform because its economic benefits would be extraordinary. Reforming our immigration system will ensure that businesses have access to those workers and that our economy thrives. Immigrants comprise about 25 million people in the Americ...Keep on reading: 3 hurdles to clear on the road to U.S. immigration reform.....»»
