After Trump Executive Orders, ICE Making 400 Arrests Per Day

ICE doing its job and enforcing our laws.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced Wednesday that it has arrested more than 400 individuals per day since President Trump signed executive orders calling for tougher immigration policies.

Between Jan. 22 and April 29, the immigration enforcement agency arrested 41,318 individuals on civil immigration charges, 75 percent of whom were convicted criminals, after Trump signed immigration-related executive orders in January. That number represents a 37.6 percent increase from the same period in 2016.

“These statistics reflect President Trump’s commitment to enforce our immigration laws fairly and across the board,” ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan said in a statement. “ICE agents and officers have been given clear direction to focus on threats to public safety and national security, which has resulted in a substantial increase in the arrest of convicted criminal aliens.”

ICE arrested 30,473 convicted criminal aliens this year, a 20 percent jump from the 25,786 arrested last year. Noncriminal arrests increased from 4,200 in 2016 to 10,800 in 2017.  FreeBeacon

DOJ: Task Force Arrest 21 Of The ‘Most Violent’ MS-13 Gang Members In L.A.

Enforcing our laws!

The Justice Department announced Wednesday that a law enforcement task force has taken out MS-13 leadership in Los Angeles.

The task force, which included state, local, and federal law enforcement agencies, arrested 21 members and associates of MS-13 Wednesday. The DOJ has brought RICO charges against 44 individuals in LA.

“This case has targeted the leadership and most violent actors of the MS-13 street gang in Los Angeles, as well as MS-13’s links to the Mexican Mafia,” Deirdre Fike, the assistant director of the FBI’s Los Angeles field office, said in a statement. “This operation will have a significant impact on this violent gang and their overall ability to maintain control over law-abiding citizens.”

The 127-page indictment revealed that there are over ten thousand MS-13 members in the US, and that the LA gang is of particular importance. “MS-13 members in Los Angeles are sometimes called upon to provide input in other parts of the country,” the indictment said. DailyCaller

West Virginia Supreme Court Rejected “Sexual Orientation” From Its State Discrimination Laws

The ruling is a strict constructionist view of law.

The West Virginia Supreme Court has ruled that laws against discrimination on the basis of a person’s sex do not include “sexual orientation.”

The 3-2 decision upholds an originalist view of legislation whereby the judicial system interprets the intent of law and does not legislate from the bench.

Chief Justice Allen H. Loughry II delivered the ruling Saturday, which determined that “where the language of a statute is clear and without ambiguity, the plain meaning is to be accepted.” The ruling takes a strict constructionist view of law, which strikes at the heart of attempts to expand old laws to create a special class of “hate crimes.”

At issue was a 1987 state civil rights law (WV Code 61-6-21b) that prohibited discrimination on the basis of various characteristics, including “sex.”..

In the end, the state Supreme Court affirmed a circuit court’s ruling that the 1987 anti-discrimination law was “unambiguous.” Noting that sex and sexual orientation have quite different meanings, the court verified that justices are “bound to apply the law as it stands” and “cannot expand the word ‘sex’ to include ‘sexual orientation’ within West Virginia Code § 61-6-21(b).”…

This West Virginia ruling is the exact opposite of a Chicago appeals court ruling on April 4 that Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which bans discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, and national origin, also covers homosexuality.

Two of the three women on the five-member West Virginia Supreme Court, Justices Robin Jean Davis and Margaret L. Workman, dissented. Their written dissent extensively quoted the Chicago appellate court’s redefining of “sex” not as one’s binary gender but as including expected gender roles versus homosexual activity. LifeSiteNews

French Court Rejects A Third Gender Category

Gender is linked to biology.

France’s highest court last week rejected the notion of a “neutral” gender.

The ruling upheld a lower court’s decision denying a French citizen with a sex development disorder the right to use “neutral” as an official gender.

The Cour de Cassation, France’s supreme court, ruled that the distinction between male and female was “necessary to the social and legal organization, of which it is a cornerstone,” and that the recognition of a neutral gender would have “profound repercussions on rules of French law” and necessitate legislative changes, according to Agence France-Presse.  ChristianHeadlines

Alveda King: POTUS Is Redirecting [Not Cuttting] Funds To Save Lives!

The Trump administration has expanded the pro-life Mexico City Policy.

Evangelist Alveda King:   Finally our tax dollars are being redirected from death care to health care. President Trump’s “Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance” policy is simply amazing. Friends, he’s not robbing the poor, he’s saving lives. Remember, abortion is not health care. Abortions kill babies and sometimes mothers. Abortion is a violent and deceptive act. I know. I survived two abortions and a miscarriage. My babies didn’t. #HowCanTheDreamSurviveAbortion

With his New Mexico City Policy, our new POTUS Administration is now multiplying the lifesaving impact well beyond the Department of State.

What’s new? Well along with the $600 million in taxpayer funding saved under the authority of the New Mexico City pro-life rule, $8.8 billion from the Departments of State, Health and Human Services, and Defense are being redirected for life. That’s almost 15 times more money flowing through the abortion ban than previous policies; yes cutting deaths by abortion while saving lives.

In a nutshell, here’s what POTUS is doing: “I direct the Secretary of State, in coordination with the Secretary of Health and Human Services, to the extent allowable by law, to implement a plan to extend the requirements of the reinstated Memorandum to global health assistance furnished by all departments or agencies…” President Trump directed.

“I further direct the Secretary of State to take all necessary actions, to the extent permitted by law, to ensure that U.S. taxpayer dollars do not fund organizations or programs that support or participate in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.”

As one White House official told The Brody File, “The pro-life policy will apply to global health assistance funding for international health programs, such as those for HIV/AIDS, maternal and child health, malaria, global health security, and family planning and reproductive health.”

Many people already know and understand that the inclusion of the DOD is probably the single greatest change, since the order affects all global health assistance funding—not just “family planning” dollars. Super lifesaving, money redirecting impact. More funds are now available for improving our quality of life. America Return to God!

Now, along with thousands and maybe millions of unborn lives; not to mention healing women and mothers, this policy will help heal America. Keep praying friends.  President Donald Trump is listening to 83 percent of Americans who asked him to end taxpayer funding of overseas abortion groups. I’m in that number. Are you? Pray about it!

“If you succumb to the temptation of using violence in the struggle, unborn generations will be the recipients of a long and desolate night of bitterness, and your chief legacy to the future will be an endless reign of meaningless chaos.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.
