Ken Cuccinelli and Pam Bondi were others.

Here’s the scoop…

From Washington Examiner:

Kris Kobach said Tuesday he is eager to become President Trump’s Homeland Security secretary and confirmed he has been communicating with the White House about the job.

Kobach is emerging as the favorite of immigration hawks as Trump considers replacements for Kirstjen Nielsen. The former Kansas secretary of state, a Trump confidant on immigration matters, built his political career around advocating for curbing immigration into the United States, whether legal or illegal.

Kobach said, “He’s got an important decision to make. If he wants to have me serve in this capacity, and thinks it would be the best thing for the country, I would certainly do so.

On Sunday, Neilsen submitted her resignation to President Trump.

Here are the details…

From CBS News:

Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen abruptly resigned Sunday, as the president continues to fume over continued illegal border crossings. CBS News first reported Nielsen’s impending departure, which Mr. Trump confirmed in a tweet after a 5 p.m. meeting with Nielsen at the White House.

Trump commented and announced her acting replacement:

Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen will be leaving her position, and I would like to thank her for her service….

….I am pleased to announce that Kevin McAleenan, the current U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner, will become Acting Secretary for @DHSgov. I have confidence that Kevin will do a great job!

Due to the overwhelming number of migrants attempting to cross into America from the southern border, the Department of Homeland Security is taking action.

They are sending 750 additional agents to the border.

Maybe this will open up some Democrat eyes.

Then again, no, no it won’t.

Largest County In Maryland Snubs ICE, Refuses To Cooperate With Them

Unbelievable.

Published

on

One of the most popular means the left has employed to help aid illegal immigrants in breaking United States immigration law is the “sanctuary city,” a place where these folks can hide without worry of being handed over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. Granted, such behavior is technically a violation of federal law, but that’s not stopping them from not cooperating. There are currently nine states, which includes New Jersey, California, and Illinois, that consider themselves “sanctuary states.” Many other cities around the country exist. Well, the largest county in Maryland is now joining those ranks as they are refusing to cooperate with ICE to help keep our nation safe and secure from those who seek to infiltrate our nation and abuse the systems we have in place. via The Daily Wire: On Monday, Montgomery County, Maryland’s largest county, officially joins the list. County Executive Marc Elrich will sign an executive order on Monday that will keep the area from cooperating with ICE, even though the policy has been unofficially on the books for some time. “The Promoting Community Trust Executive Order aims to reaffirm current county policy and improve community security by ensuring that immigrant and otherwise vulnerable communities can engage with county departments,” Elrich said in a statement provided to WTOP. The policy ensures that county agencies do not ask those who seek help about their immigration status, the outlet reported. Nor will these agencies cooperate with ICE. The county’s current police chief, Marcus Jones, says that the policy is already in action. According to Jones they have no direct contact with ICE on immigration issues, nor are they doing any operations with ICE in the county. Even if the police department has an illegal immigrant in custody, they will not be lending a hand to ICE…

Trump Destroys Washington Post For ‘Fake News’ About Battle With ‘The Squad’

This is why people love Trump.

Published

on

President Trump took to Twitter on Sunday and Monday to do what he does best and completely annihilate the Washington Post over “fake news” report about his battle against radical leftist congresswomen now known as “The Squad.” The Washington Post plastered as story on their front page with the headline, “A Twitter storm and its aftermath,” which takes a deep look at the aftermath of Trump’s “racist” tweets telling Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Rashida Tlaib, and Ayanna Pressley to “go back” to their countries of origin if they hate America. However, it’s important to note that such a statement wouldn’t make a whole lot of sense seeing as how only Omar was born outside of the United States. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “The Washington Post Story, about my speech in North Carolina and tweet, with its phony sources who do not exist, is Fake News,” Trump tweeted Sunday. “The only thing people were talking about is the record setting crowd and the tremendous enthusiasm, far greater than the Democrats. You’ll see in 2020!” He followed that tweet by repeating a phrase that’s become one of his refrains about how the media treats him: “Presidential Harassment!” The president then once again emphasized why he has singled out the Squad: “I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!” On Monday, the president tweeted the following: “The Amazon Washington Post front page story yesterday was total Fake News. They said ‘Advisors wrote new talking points and handed him reams of opposition research on the four Congresswomen.’ Now really, does that sound like…
