Lame-Duck May Push Amnesty

Democrats and cheap labor Republicans may push an amnesty for illegal aliens in the upcoming lame-duck session of Congress. One possible strategy may be to offer President Trump funding for a border wall in exchange for signing an amnesty bill for 3.5 million illegal aliens in the DACA category. Immigration reform advocates say this would be a bad deal because a wall alone would do little to stop illegal immigration, while amnesty would be a strong encouragement for more foreigners to come to this country illegally.

Outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) may lead this effort. The billionaire Koch brothers are spending millions of dollars to support a DACA amnesty during the lame-duck session.

Central American caravans on November 13

It’s becoming more difficult to fix the location of the (original) caravan. An article in the Wall Street Journal explains why: “Largest of Migrant Caravans Splits Into Smaller Groups.” In a process that had begun even before the group landed in Mexico City several days ago, the caravan had started to split as migrants, many …

Trump Changes Asylum Rules

President Trump issued a temporary order requiring asylum applicants to apply for asylum at U.S. ports of entry. Under the order they will not be able to apply after illegally crossing the border outside the ports. The purpose of the order is to asylum requests in an orderly fashion and discourage bogus applications. One likely outcome will be slowing the migrant caravan in Mexico now moving toward the U.S. border.
