    White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly said Tuesday that President Trump is not expected to extend a March 5 deadline for when legal protection and work permits begin to expire for young immigrants known as “dreamers” — raising the stakes for lawmakers struggling to reach a solution. “I doubt very much” Trump would extend the program, Kelly told reporters during an impromptu interview at the U.S. Capitol. He told reporters that he was “not so sure this president has the authority to extend it” because the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program that protects roughly 690,000 undocumented...

    House Speaker Paul D. Ryan said Tuesday that he’ll only allow the House to vote on an immigration bill President Trump will sign, effectively ruling out several bipartisan plans that fall short on border security. “We’re not going to bring immigration legislation through that the president doesn’t support,” Mr. Ryan said when asked about the path forward. Congress has less than four weeks until the March 5 phaseout deadline Mr. Trump set for the Obama-era DACA deportation amnesty, which is currently protecting nearly 700,000 illegal immigrant “Dreamers.”

    A West Virginia bill that would end taxpayer funding for abortions in the state is slated for a public hearing Monday in the state House. West Virginia is one of 17 states that funds elective abortions for low-income women through Medicaid. State House Bill 4012 would end taxpayer funding for abortions except when medically necessary to save the mother’s life, the AP reports. Since 1977, state taxpayers have been forced to pay millions of dollars for tens of thousands unborn babies’ abortion deaths, according to West Virginians for Life. “The federal government limits tax funding of abortions to cases of...

    On both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, former British MI-6 Intelligence Officer Christopher Steele is going to extremes to avoiding answering questions from the United States Congress, while at the same time avoiding being videotaped and deposed in a multi-million dollar libel case brought against Buzzfeed. The media outlet published the unverified Trump dossier just over a year ago, setting off an international firestorm. Steele was a no-show Monday for a long-requested deposition in London, Fox News has learned. The news comes as Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., have announced a criminal referral...

    Rep. Adam Schiff (D., Calif.) said Sunday that a consequence of the controversial Devin Nunes memo alleging Justice Department surveillance abuses would be people would be more hesitant to report their neighbors to the FBI for being potential fertilizer bombers. ABC host George Stephanopoulos asked Schiff on Sunday about the Democratic concern that the GOP intelligence memo is meant to undermine Robert Mueller's Russia investigation and whether that strategy was working. "I don't think it's working, in the sense that people have a lot of confidence in Bob Mueller," Schiff said. "But it is impeaching the FBI, and the problem...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Crime and Terrorism Subcommittee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Monday released a memo referring Trump dossier author Christopher Steele for a criminal investigation that revealed that a friend of Hillary and Bill Clinton fed information for the Steele dossier. According to Grassley and Graham’s memo, which is heavily redacted at the request of the FBI, a foreign source gave information to friends of Bill and Hillary Clinton, who then gave it to an Obama State Department official, who then gave it to Steele. Grassley and Graham’s memo stated: One memorandum by Mr....

    The story we've all been handed from the democrats is that the investigation into Trump is about collusion with Russia. There is not a shred of evidence to support that contention but that hasn't stopped democrats from repeating it. But what if that's only a cover story? One of the early targets of the Russia accusation is Carter Page. Page is frequently called an idiot, but he is anything but and idiot: Page graduated in 1993 from the United States Naval Academy; he was a Distinguished Graduate (top 10% of his class) and was chosen for the Navy's Trident Scholar program,...

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday let a court-ordered redrawing of congressional districts in Pennsylvania proceed, raising Democratic hopes that a revamped map might yield them several more seats this fall. Justice Samuel Alito, who handles emergency appeals from Pennsylvania, rejected the request from GOP legislative leaders and voters to put on hold an order from the state Supreme Court intended to produce new congressional districts in the coming two weeks. The Pennsylvania high court ruled last month that the current map of 18 districts violates the state constitution because it unfairly benefits Republicans.

    With the stock market nearing correction territory Monday, former Obama White House Press Secretary Jay Carney suggested on Twitter that President Trump should have learned something from his predecessor and be careful not to tout optimistic looking stocks. It is just too risky.The Dow Jones plunged almost 1,600 points and essentially erased its gains for the year. It was the worst loss in six and a half years.The Obama administration, Carney claimed on Twitter, was careful to never boast about the stock market as Trump has often done. Good time to recall that in the previous administration, we NEVER boasted...

    WASHINGTON -- Almost six in 10 Americans do not want another federal government shutdown over the Republican refusal to allow unauthorized immigrants brought to the U.S. as children to remain in the country, according to a poll released Monday. With the current temporary spending bill set to expire Thursday, 59 percent in the Monmouth Poll said it would be unacceptable for congressional Democrats to oppose a budget deal even if the so-called dreamers remain in limbo for now. Just 36 percent said it would be acceptable for the Democrats to do so. (Snip) " By 82 percent to 14 percent,...
  • McCain, Coons immigration bill sparks Trump backlash

    A bill aimed at resetting immigration negotiations in the Senate is running into early backlash from President Trump. The bill from Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and Christopher Coons (D-Del.), introduced on Monday, pairs a path to citizenship for “dreamers” with border security measures — but does not include funding for a U.S.-Mexico border wall. The two senators believe their bill could be a base for negotiators among a wider group of senators, but Trump took a shot at the measure before it was even formally introduced. The president said it was a non-starter to offer a fix for the Deferred...

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average has plunged by nearly 1,500 points in a day of volatile trading that has rattled global markets. The leading US stock market index is down more than 5.8% at 24,025.33. It is the worst one day fall in points since September 2008 during the depths of the financial crisis. The decline extends losses on Friday, when strong wage growth data raised the prospect of accelerated interest rate rises. Monday's sell-off surpasses a 777.68 points drop on the Dow Jones on 29 September 2008 when Congress rejected a $700bn bank bailout plan following the collapse of...

    “It is troubling enough that the Clinton campaign funded Mr. Steele’s work, but that these Clintons associates were contemporaneously feeding Mr. Steele allegations raises additional concerns about his credibility.” A declassified House memo states that the FBI used the dossier to obtain a wiretap warrant on a Trump campaign volunteer. The FBI did not tell the court that the Hilary Clinton camp and the Democratic national Committee funded the dossier through Fusion GPS to Mr. Steele. A Republican senator on Monday released an unpublished portion of the infamous Trump-Russia dossier that showed Hillary Clinton associates fed information to the author,...

    Injecting minute amounts of two immune-stimulating agents directly into solid tumors in mice can eliminate all traces of cancer in the animals, including distant, untreated metastases, according to a study by researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine. The approach works for many different types of cancers, including those that arise spontaneously, the study found. The researchers believe the local application of very small amounts of the agents could serve as a rapid and relatively inexpensive cancer therapy that is unlikely to cause the adverse side effects often seen with bodywide immune stimulation. "When we use these two agents...
