Malawi: Asians Aggrieved With ‘Extreme Aggression’ By Immigration Dept.

Asian Association of Maravi (AAM) have been greatly aggrieved by "extremely aggressive" invasion by Immigration Department made at Area 2 in Lilongwe on the night of May 9, which the officials had explained was a door-to-door sweep to capture illegal immigrants. A statement, addressed to no one in particular -- dated May 13 issued by AAM chairperson, Rafiq Hajat -- describes the Immigration officials conduct in the operation as unconstitutional and that they allegedly refused to show their identity papers. The statement explains that on the night of Sunday May 9, the residents of Area 2 "were peacefully asleep when they suddenly were awakened by furious banging at their front doors at approximately 1 am". "Thinking that there was something sorely amiss, they opened the doors to find out what…

Stephen Miller Tells Fox News That He’s Suing Joe Biden Over Illegal Immigration

When Joe Biden took office in January, he inherited a number of different messes. The biggest, of course, was the COVID-19 pandemic. Now over 2 million Americans have been vaccinated and shots are freely available. There is also a situation at the US/Mexico border where many are seeking asylum. While Conservative talking heads have claimed that this began with Biden, it had started under the Trump administration. Trump flak Stephen Miller is desperate to detract from Biden’s successes. And on Thursday night, he announced that he and Texas AG Ken Paxton are suing Joe Biden. Miller explained to Tucker Carlson, “I’m working with attorney general Ken Paxton who is a true patriot and we should all be grateful to him, to sue the Biden administration on behalf of the people of Texas for flooding…

Biden plans sweeping change of Trump’s immigration agenda: report

Joe Biden is planning a major overhaul of President Trump’s immigration agenda, reversing his Muslim travel ban and freezing deportations for 100 days, according to a new report. The incoming Biden administration is bullish about its ability to undo many of Trump’s signature immigration policies because so many were created with executive action, one source familiar with the plans told CBS News. “All that stuff was done administratively through the [president’s] executive authority, and so a new executive can basically reject those and start from scratch,” the source said. Biden is eyeing several immediate changes, including dismantling Trump’s ban on immigration from 13 predominantly Muslim and African nations. Shortly after taking office, Trump signed an executive order that banned foreign nationals from seven countries –- Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan,…

Trump’s Hard-Line Immigration Policies Go Before Voters

McALLEN, Texas — The leadership of the Department of Homeland Security gathered on Thursday under the shadow of 30-foot, black-painted, steel bollards to promote the near completion of 400 miles of President Trump’s border wall.The politics of the moment, five days before the election, was lost on no one.“The only reason we haven’t reached another crisis is because of the policies and procedures this administration put into place over the last several years, including the construction of an effective border wall system,” Chad F. Wolf, the acting homeland security secretary, told reporters, photographers and cameramen. “Abolishing these measures or reversing course is absolutely no way forward.”Immigration has not been a central theme of the race between Mr. Trump and former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., the Democratic nominee, but…

VA’21 Tip-Republicans Master Power-Democrats Weak

What lessons should the Democrats learn from the loss of the Governor's race and state House of Delegates in the Virginia 2021 elections and the election night scare in New Jersey? As expected, numerous pundits, news reporters, Democratic and Republican Party operatives, and elected officials have blanketed cable news shows on MSNBC and CNN offering their analyses. Most of that analysis to date has centered on the movement of white so-called swing voters from the Democrats column back to the Republican column. Suburban Swing Voters & White Women. One such group that has been the focus of much pontification is white suburban women. Virginia returns and exit polls suggest that some independents and white women in the suburbs moved to Republicans. Many pundits have talked about swing voters and white…

Immigrants & Problem History of Citizenship Day

As the United States grapples with immigrants, immigration, and citizenship, it is worth reflecting on the history of Citizenship Day. During his first Citizenship Day speech on Sept. 17, 1952, President Truman warmly greeted the immigrants attending the annual meeting of the National Conference on Citizenship in Washington, D.C. Later that day, they would take the Oath of Allegiance at a naturalization ceremony, shedding their status as immigrants to become U.S. citizens. In commemoration of this momentous event, Truman articulated a bold view of American nationality, one that relinquished nationalistic animosities and racial prejudices and embraced the principles of “tolerance, friendship, and equality.” “We welcome you,” Truman declared, “not to a narrow nationalism but to a great community based on a set of universal ideals.” Citizenship and Immigrants Truman’s cosmopolitan…

50 years since the 26th amendment

Rock the Vote?Does anyone remember this? Or this? Okay. Videos and efforts to turn out youth voters have existed for as long as I can remember, going back to my middle school age—which is before that Madonna video above. The truth is, Democratic efforts are built on young people. We know and have known for quite some time that non-Baby Boomers see reality very differently. I always think of it this way: My parents grew up in a world where a high school diploma put them on a career track to full homeownership at pocket change in comparison to today’s dollars, a car, and kids, with no real debt. That just isn’t at all the same today. As generations get further away from the Baby Boomers, it gets harder. Despite all of…

America Is Undergoing Seismic Changes. Its Politics? Hardly.

In another age, the events of this season would have been nearly certain to produce a major shift in American politics — or at least a meaningful, discernible one.Over a period of weeks, the coronavirus death rate plunged and the country considerably eased public health restrictions. President Biden announced a bipartisan deal late last month to spend hundreds of billions of dollars rebuilding the country’s worn infrastructure — the most significant aisle-crossing legislative agreement in a generation, if it holds together. The Congressional Budget Office estimated on Thursday that the economy was on track to regain all of the jobs it lost during the pandemic by the middle of 2022.And in a blow to Mr. Biden’s fractious opposition, Donald J. Trump — the dominant figure in Republican politics — faced…
