From Breitbart.com- Immigration and Customs Enforcement has released the zip codes associated with the Obama administration’s release of 169 immigrants convicted of “homicide-related” offenses who were awaiting deportation proceedings.
Senator Grassley stated “Ensuring that our enforcement policies and procedures are best suited to protect national security, and public safety is paramount,” he added. “To make certain we are doing everything we can in this regard, I am instituting new procedures requiring that an appropriate senior-level supervisor must approve before ICE releases potentially dangerous individuals.”
According to Grassley, Winkowski’s response reveals the government has not placed adequate protections to “ensure public safety and national security.”
“The public needs to know when a person is in the country illegally, and who has been convicted of a homicide, is released into their communities,” Grassley said in a statement. “We’ve introduced legislation that would reverse the court case that the Obama administration is relying on to excuse its irresponsible release of thousands of criminally convicted aliens.”

From Erick Erickson’s RedState.com:
Note from Erick: Please welcome to our front page the always awesome David Horowitz.
Let me begin by acknowledging that this inspirational title is lifted from a tweet by screen actor James Woods. And now I will explicate his tweet.
Every sentient human being whose brain isn’t stuffed with ideological fairy dust can see that Obama is behind every major scandal of his administration from Benghazi to the I.R.S. disgrace. How can one know this? Because the culprits haven’t been fired. Moreover, if they are serial liars like Susan Rice, they’ve actually been promoted to posts where their loyalty to the criminal-in-chief can do America and its citizens even more damage, if that is possible.

I was driving through the U.S. Border Patrol with my Icam glasses on and got this on Video. I asked the question and got the truth! – Travis Pope
While preparing to shoot pool with Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, President Obama tried to justify his refusal to visit the US/Mexico border by saying that he is “not interested in photo opps.” Well here are 68 of those photo opps that he is not interested in.
This should not come as any surprise. As with every other money that the Feds offer to States or Municipalities, there are always strings attached. Yes, all your ELECTED officials know this but choose the money.
The Obama administration, in July 2013, quietly introduced a new regulation that critics say will dramatically increase Washington’s power over local zoning laws in every city and town that accepts federal block grants through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. And it’s the federal grants that could be used as a hook in the nose of these cities, forcing them to house illegal immigrants against their will.
Some are calling it the “Common Core of local zoning” that has flown under the radar for nearly a year. Instead of the U.S. Department of Education dictating education standards to local school districts, this rule change would allow HUD to influence zoning laws from the biggest cities down to the tiniest towns.

So which of our two Senators has it right?
From Sunshine State News- The two U.S. senators representing Florida looked at the immigration crisis this week and pointed the blame at the Obama administration for why it’s continuing. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., took to the Senate floor on Thursday and said the Obama administration was failing to grasp why tens of thousands illegals — including more than 52,000 children who have been caught since October — are crossing the border. Nelson called for the Obama administration to ramp up operations and aid in Latin America to assist the war on drugs.

I hate when most state that the President is an incompetent ineffective president. He is anything but that. He IS successfully transforming America. Same goes for the immigration battle-
Illegal Immigration: Texas Gov. Rick Perry states the obvious when he suggests that the flood of alien children coming to the U.S. from Latin America just might be a result of “ulterior motives” on the part of President Obama.
HOUSTON, Texas–As illegal immigrants continue to spill across the U.S. – Mexico border, federal authorities are attempting to relocate the migrants from South Texas to housing facilities in states across the nation. One such facility is located in Murrieta, California, where a large group of protesters recently blocked a bus full of migrants from arriving. The protesters remain there, adamant that illegal immigrants don’t get dumped in their town. But soon the concerned citizens may be forced to step down–Breitbart Texas has learned that federal agents plan to arrive in Murrieta on Monday with riot gear to ensure that another busload makes it to the housing facility.
Jeremy Oliver, a resident of Temecula, California–a town that neighbors Murrieta–told Breitbart Texas that local police officers warned the protesters that “it’s going to get ugly.”
Oliver said, “The feds are pissed that they haven’t been able to use this facility. Officers out there warned people that federal agents will be in Murrieta on Monday–they are going to get the next bus through no matter what. Riot gear and shields will be used to push the crowd back.” Continue reading at breitbart.com.
A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say.
In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their identities because they fear retaliation and prosecution. Continue reading at foxnews.com.
You can pretty much kiss goodbye any hopes that our elected officials in D.C. will shut the border and stop the influx of minors that has grown at an alarming rate this year. No one should be surprised that this is by design. As a matter of fact please read the article from our own Paula Helton (http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/63987 ) about this.
Now this whole thing is deemed a humanitarian crisis and as such we must welcome everyone with open arms. Heck, we have enough money to take care of the world don’t we?
This week Cornyn (R-TX) and Rubio (R-FL) introduced a resolution “expressing the sense of the Senate that President Obama should take immediate action to mitigate the humanitarian crisis along the international border between the United States and Mexico involving unaccompanied migrant children and to prevent future crises.”
GOP staffers, however, tell Breitbart News that the resolution is inadequate, as it is too weak and fails to address the idea that the the humanitarian crisis at the border is actually a crisis of “lawlessness.”
The pair’s resolution enumerates five steps they believe the president should take on the problem, including to publicly declare that Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program will not apply to the new immigrants, publicly discourage people south of the border from sending their children to the U.S., “fully” enforce U.S. immigration law, provide resources to states dealing with the influx, and improve the security at Mexico’s southern border by working with Mexican and Central American officials.

VIRGINIA, June 11, 2014- It’s been 24 hours since the polls closed in Virginia, and the political establishment was rocked in what is being called the most earth-shattering defeat in decades.
National Tea Party groups have been fast to speak out and congratulate Brat on defeating Eric Cantor (R-Va.), the GOP’s second most powerful Republican. As is often the case, when a big win is scored, those with large megaphones are always ready to speak up.
“Congratulations to Dave Brat on his huge upset. The statement from the grassroots could not be any clearer. It doesn’t matter what office you hold or how powerful you are. If you lose touch with activists on the ground, then your seat is in danger,” wrote Freedom Works’ Matthew Kibbe. “The grassroots are taking their seat back at the table and returning accountability to Washington. Votes on Capitol Hill will be heard back in the district,” he added. “We are proud to stand with Dave Brat in his election and look forward to working with him to reform Washington, D.C.” Continue reading at: benswann.com.

Fox New Hannity 6/10/2014: Dave Brat on what his shocking win means for the GOP.
(NYTimes) WASHINGTON — In one of the most stunning primary election upsets in congressional history, the House majority leader, Eric Cantor, was soundly defeated on Tuesday by a Tea Party-backed economics professor who had hammered him for being insufficiently conservative. (Post continued below video)
The result delivered a major jolt to the Republican Party — Mr. Cantor had widely been considered the top candidate to succeed Speaker John A. Boehner — and it has the potential to change both the debate in Washington on immigration and, possibly, the midterm elections.
With just over $200,000, David Brat, a professor at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Va., toppled Mr. Cantor, repeatedly criticizing him for being soft on immigration and contending that he supported what critics call amnesty for immigrants in the country illegally. Mr. Brat will face Jack Trammell, a Democrat who is also a professor at Randolph-Macon, this fall in the heavily Republican district. Read more at: YouHotNews.
