    Speaking from the White House briefing room Tuesday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer announced the development of a new Immigration and Customs Enforcement office focused on helping victims of crimes committed by illegal aliens. The office will also assist family members of victims and is part of President Trump's recent executive action to bolster enforcement of immigration laws already on the books. "This office [Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement Office] will facilitate the engagement with victims and their families to ensure questions and concerns regarding immigration enforcement efforts are addressed," Spicer said, adding that the establishment of the office fulfills a campaign...

    On Tuesday, DHS Sec. Kelly issued an immigration memo shifting the U.S. government’s efforts and resources away from defending illegal aliens to helping their victims. The memo creates the “Victims of Immigration Crime Engagement” (VOICE) office, which will act as “liaison between ICE and the known victims of crimes committed by removable aliens.” VOICE will address victims’ concerns and provide information regarding the enforcement actions and immigration status of the perpetrator. […] The memo also reallocates “any and all resources” currently used to advocate for illegal aliens and terminates “outreach and advocacy services” provided to them. …

    Two days after President Donald Trump was eviscerated by both the mainstream media and Swedish officials for his comments indicating Sweden was having a problem with its generous refugee policies, riots erupted in the country. Mr. Trump was largely mocked for the comments he made at a Florida rally over the weekend, where he used Sweden has an example to justify his extreme vetting policy. “We’ve got to keep our country safe,” Mr. Trump said at the rally. “You look at what’s happening in Germany.

The poll shows that President Trump has broad public support in his effort to crack down on sanctuary cities. A survey from Harvard–Harris Poll provided exclusively to The Hill found that 80 percent of voters say local authorities should have to comply with the law by reporting to federal agents the illegal immigrants they come into contact with. As it stands, hundreds of cities across the nation — many with Democratic mayors or city councils —...

Its stated purpose is "to guide the executive branch in formulating and implementing policies with implications for the religious freedom of persons and organizations in America." Christian organizations include even "closely held for-profit corporations, operated for a religious purpose, even if its purpose is not exclusively religious."

Employees began experiencing problems logging into networks at 5 a.m. ET on Tuesday due to the expiration of the personal identify verification cards used by federal workers and contractors to access certain information systems, one source said.

When asked in last week’s press conference about DACA and the so-called “dreamers” — children brought into the country illegally by their parents — Trump replied that his immigration policy would show “great heart” in those cases. Today, CBS reports that Trump’s new immigration policy keeps DACA in place. Or perhaps better put, it doesn’t explicitly eliminate it: A source with knowledge of DHS planning said...

    Given that continued rise in the stock market, it’s no wonder that Mr. Trump wants to take credit for it. Investor and traders say that the gains reflect hopes that Mr. Trump will enact business-friendly policies like lower corporate taxes, looser regulations and infrastructure spending. As many are quick to point out, if Mr. Trump takes credit for the stock market rally, he also must take credit for any reversal.
