Acting ICE Director Thomas Homan had some strong words Tuesday for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who accused the Trump administration and ICE agents of carrying out "cowardly attacks" on illegal immigrants.
Pelosi issued the statement after the Justice Department filed a lawsuit against California, claiming three recently passed state laws are deliberately interfering with federal immigration enforcement.
“The people of California will not be bowed by the Trump administration’s brazen aggression and intimidation tactics," the California Democrat said. "Californians will continue to proudly keep our doors open to the immigrants who make America more American. We will fight this sham lawsuit and will fight all cowardly attacks on our immigrant communities.”
Homan responded on "Varney & Co." defending his officers for putting "their lives on the line" each day for their country
"So how dare you call them cowardly," he said.
He pointed out that the criminal illegal immigrants ICE targeted in recent raids were the ones who were actually terrorizing immigrant communities, as they are charged with serious offenses such as assault and murder.
"ICE went in there and removed these people from the community. So that's far from terrorizing. We're protecting people, we're protecting the American public," Homan said.
President Donald Trump and members of U.S. Customs and Border Protection viewed prototypes of the Mexican border wall in San Diego Tuesday.
Trump spent most of his visit out of earshot of the press, but walked over to make brief remarks during his tour.
He said he looked at the current border "fence" and saw where holes had been cut and re-plugged by authorities.
"The fence is not strong enough, it's not the right idea," he said.
Speaking with a CBP agent, Trump asked why they want a wall with "see-through" capability.
According to this border agent that spoke with Pres. Trump as the president visited the prototype walls that are currently being manufactured and put in place along the Mexican/American border, 95% of illegal crossings were actually stopped with the much cheaper and far less secure scrap metal wall that was currently being used throughout many parts of the country.
The border agent did admit that these walls are easily scaled and beaten, however, illegals prefer the easiest route possible so they attempt to avoid the walls.
Border agents have praise president Trump for actually following through on his promise to build the border wall. Unlike Democrats who are begging for illegal immigrants to vote for them so they are attempting to stop the wallet every chance possible.
CRTV host Michelle Malkin ripped Hillary Clinton Tuesday over her comments in India that labeled President Donald Trump's supporters as wanting to move the country "backwards."
"You didn't like black people getting rights, you don't like women getting jobs, you don't want to see that Indian-American succeeding...whatever your problem is, I'm going to solve it," Clinton said of Trump's pitch to Americans.
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) appeared on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday morning to sound off on his committee's report that it found "no evidence of collusion, coordination or conspiracy between the Trump campaign and the Russians."
"We need to get our FBI and our intelligence agencies working on real problems and get them away from what they're doing now, which is, it looks likes spinning in circles," Nunes said. "We spent 14 months on this investigation, looking for collusion. We didn't find any."
Brian Kilmeade noted that Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, said the committee's conclusion is a "tragic milestone" for Congress and it represents another "capitulation" to the executive branch.
Hillary Clinton has no shortage of excuses for why she lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump.
From James Comey to Vladimir Putin, content farms in Macedonia to Netflix, Clinton has had plenty of blame to pass around in the past 16 months.
"Fox & Friends" currently has the number at 42 reasons and counting...
Hillary Clinton sprained her hand during her visit to India, after taking a nasty spill on the stairs while out touring a palace on Monday.
It is not yet clear if the hand injury was a direct result of Monday's incident in which she fell not once but twice on the stairs and was pictured using her hand to brace her fall.
As a result of her injury she was forced to cancel a handful of visits. Doctors attended to the former presidential candidate at Umaid Bhawan Palace where she is staying.
The team of doctors from a private hospital nearby determined her injury was a sprain, and advised her to rest it, according to Times of India.
Powerful companies rule our world today, but stories are coming out about how they're out of touch with the world views of millions of Christian and conservative Americans, even as they're censoring the messages you're allowed to read and watch online.
The latest case: This week, social network powerhouse Facebook came under fire for a survey asking users whether pedophiles should be able to ask underage girls for photographs. The questionnaire read: "In thinking about an ideal world where you could set Facebook's policies, how would you handle the following: a private message in which an adult man asks a 14-year-old girl for sexual pictures?"
The users were given multiple choice answers, none of which included "calling the police," but were instead: "This content should not be allowed on Facebook, and no one should be able to see it" to "this content should be allowed on Facebook, and I would not mind seeing it."
Evangelist Franklin Graham called the survey "ridiculous and shameful" in a post on his own Facebook page.
"Why Why would Facebook ask such a question? Graham wrote. "They surveyed users asking if pedophiles should be able to ask children for sexual pictures. It just shows you how low our moral standards in this country have fallen. Many people today don't seem to recognize right from wrong. I'm sure Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan were appalled. Facebook now says the question was a mistake—well, to say the least, I firmly agree. To have a survey asking this is ridiculous and it's shameful. Pedophilia is just wickedness. The Bible says, 'For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts. (Mark 7:21).'
A Republican Senate candidate in Missouri says Facebook banned him from using the social network for 30 days because he used the site to promote his campaign’s AR-15 giveaway.
The candidate, Austin Petersen, published an open letter to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on his campaign website on Thursday and argued his situation was part of a larger trend of unfairness towards conservatives.
“It’s difficult to ignore that this action comes during a period of heightened tension regarding Facebook’s role in our elections, and its perceived bias against conservative voices,” Petersen wrote.
In his letter, Petersen said he has made Facebook a centerpiece of his campaign’s outreach efforts.
“That’s why, on September 22, I was so shocked to receive a notification from Facebook informing me that I had been ‘blocked’ from using Facebook for thirty days because I ‘recently posted something that violates Facebook’s policies,’” he wrote.
Petersen said a Facebook Live video he posted to his campaign’s page promoting the AR-15 giveaway for supporters was removed. He also said a status update posted to his profile referencing the giveaway was also removed.
“I’m confident that such giveaways are consistent with Facebook’s policies...so it’s unclear to me why such content would warrant an immediate takedown and thirty-day ban,” he said.
A spokesman for Facebook did not immediately return a request for comment from Fox News.
But Facebook’s “community standards” website says the trade of firearms is prohibited on the site.
A Missouri police officer who was shot and killed and two others who were wounded had been sent to the wrong house following a 911 call, authorities said Wednesday.
Missouri Highway Patrol Sgt. Bill Lowe said no one spoke when the 911 call came in Tuesday night but two women could be heard arguing in the background. For reasons that authorities still are trying to determine, the officers were sent to the address in Clinton where they were shot. The home that officers should have responded to was in Windsor, about 15 miles (24 kilometers) away.
The three Clinton officers went inside the home to determine if criminal activity was occurring and James Waters shot them, Lowe said. Waters, 37, was in the home. It's not clear if he was living there.
Officer Christopher Ryan Morton, 30, died. Officer Nathan Bettencourt was in stable condition Wednesday. The third officer, Nicholas Kasper, was treated for gunshot wounds and released Wednesday.
After the officers were shot, a SWAT team entered the house and found Waters dead. Investigators have not determined if he shot himself or was killed by the officers, Lowe said.
A woman who lived at the home, Tammy Widger, 37, was charged Wednesday with possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver and maintaining a public nuisance, Henry County Prosecuting Attorney Richard Shields said. Her bond was set at $25,000. Widger had sold drugs out of the home previously but it was not clear Wednesday if the officers' shooting was directly related to a drug crime, Shields said.
“I think Vice Pres. Pence is right. I was raised to respect everyone's religious faith, and I fell short of that. I sincerely apologize for what I said.” Said the Libtard host of "the View" in what appeared to be a totally scripted and un-sincere apology to Christians around the world for labeling them mentally ill for believing in God. Mind you this is the same woman that constantly defends Muslims even after they launch terrorist attacks.
Curious what living in London looks like now that Muslim migrants have basically taken over almost the entire city? Well, take a look at this culturally enriching young fellow showing the melanin challenged locals the songs of his people.
Well, not really. Just being a total douche bag and pissing off all the locals.
O.J. Simpson has defamed Judith Regan by suggesting she scripted his confession just so it would be more dramatic and she could make money ... and Judith is now mulling over a possible lawsuit.
Regan's lawyer, Jennifer McGrath, tells TMZ, her client is outraged by the claim of Simpson's lawyer, who said her interview with Simpson was scripted and, "Mr. Simpson went along because quite frankly he got a lot of money up front to go along with this."
McGrath tells TMZ it was Simpson who approached Regan to do the book and he was the one who insisted on calling it 'If I Did It.' As we reported, Regan has said Simpson's lawyer contacted her and said O.J. wanted to call it "I Did It" but wanted deniability for the sake of his children.
McGrath goes on to say Regan didn't write a single word of the book, and that "Simpson sat for the interview with Ms. Regan and spoke freely. To suggest that Ms. Regan is in any way responsible for Simpson's sick and depraved comments is absurd, laughable and actionable."
A firefighter scaled down an apartment building to rescue a woman threatening to commit suicide by swiftly swinging down to kick her back into the house as she sat on the ledge of a window.
The incident took place in Nanjing City on March 11. While this incident ended well there have been concerns about China's high female suicide rate according to the World Health Organization, although considerable progress has been made in recent years to bring down the suicide rate.
Professor Stephen Hawking (1942 – 2018). Widely regarded as one of the world’s most brilliant minds, Stephen Hawking, who died this week at the age of 76, was known throughout the world for his contributions to science, his books, his television appearances, his lectures and through biographical films.
Cambridge University tribute video to Stephen Hawking He leaves three children and three grandchildren. All of us at Cambridge University will miss him greatly.

A dog died on a United Airlines plane after a flight attendant ordered its owner to put the animal in the plane's overhead bin.
United said that it took full responsibility for the incident. The dog was in a small pet carrier designed to fit under an airline seat.
Passengers reported that they heard barking during the flight and didn't know that the dog had died until the plane landed at LaGuardia Airport.
A FEMALE tourist has sparked anger after she stripped naked and rubbed herself against a mythical rock shaped like a penis.
The blonde woman was seen pulling down her hot pants next to the Hin Ta - or Grandfather Rock - on holiday island Koh Samui, Thailand, on March 12.
She was then snapped thrusting herself against the 12ft-high sacred rock - which locals believe holds the spirit of an old man.
Furious residents are now demanding cops find the woman and force her to publicly apologise.
Food seller Sutida Wongyai said: ''The rock is very special and represents our island.
"It is an insult to do this to it.''
On Monday, the House Intelligence Committee closed its inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, much to the chagrin of the liberal media. The committee confirmed that the Russians were indeed trying to cause chaos in the election, claimed they weren’t out to help candidate Donald Trump specifically and that there was no collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. But during their evening broadcasts, ABC and CBS downplayed the findings while NBC ignored them.
CBS Evening News only gave 31 seconds to the House committee’s findings. “Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee said there was no collusion or coordination between the Trump campaign and Russia during the 2016 election,” reported anchor Jeff Glor. “They also say that while Russia tried to interfere with the elections, they do not agree with U.S. intelligence that the Russians were trying to help Donald Trump.”
Glor followed that up by noting that committee’s Democrats would be releasing their own findings:
Democrats on the House panel are expected to put out their own report with different findings. The Senate Intelligence Committee is also investigating Russian meddling, as is the special counsel, Robert Mueller.
The scene was one of 'controlled chaos': hundreds of students openly smoking drugs, shot-gunning beer and performing lewd dance moves as the first weekend of Spring Break got underway on Fort Lauderdale's Las Olas Beach.
Others could be seen swigging from bottles of vodka and whiskey or guzzling tequila hidden in water pistols while some had to be helped off the sand after becoming too drunk to stand.
All of that in defiance of a 'zero tolerance policy' towards drugs and alcohol on the beach and a heavy police presence that included K-9 and mounted units.
One local cop told DailyMail.com: 'What you're seeing is controlled chaos. This isn't even a particularly busy day.
'Mostly, what we see is misdemeanor stuff, drunk, fighting stuff. One of them will get out a boom box and they all crowd round it.
'There's definitely drugs – you can smell it in the air – so what we do is take a K-9 through every so often.'
Fort Lauderdale is one of the most popular Spring Break destinations in Florida, with a recent survey putting it in second place after Orlando and its theme park resorts and ahead of nearby Miami.
At South by Southwest, SpaceX Founder and CEO Elon Musk projected that his first Mars spaceship will be ready for short trips by the first half of next year. He did warn, however, that the first travelers to Mars would likely perish.
"For the early people that go to Mars, it will be far more dangerous," Musk told HLN on Monday. "I mean, really, it kind of reads like Shackleton's ad for Antarctica explorers: It's difficult, dangerous, good chance you'll die, excitement for those who survive."
This warning came after a positive declaration: "We are building the first ship, the first Mars or interplanetary ship right now and I think we'll be able to do short flights, short up and down flights, probably in the first half of next year," Musk predicted.
It’s only the motto of America.
As Nancy Pelosi was touting how much she cares about our country, she completely forgot the meaning of the de facto national slogan, “E pluibus unum.”
Eminem's newest album entitled "Revival" wasn't just hated by most of the critics and almost every single fan that is in a complete bandwagon jumping moron, it was also one of his worst showings since the release of his first EP entitled Slim Shady.
The rapper has had a horrible career as of late, so now he's attempting to dive into politics by acting like a total hypocrite in bashing the NRA. Ironic, considering that most of his songs actually include guns in the lyrics. As well as the aging rapper constantly spewing hatred against females, homosexuals, and pretty much everybody else that liberals claim to support. Unless of course, that rapper decides to also bash the president that most of these liberals hate.
Stick to rapping about fighting pop stars dumb ass.
Even though Hillary Clinton had help going down a set of stairs in India today, she still nearly fell down.
While visiting Jahaz Mahal in Dhar’s Mandu, Clinton was attempting to descend about 15 stairs.
She was holding the arm of an aide.
With Huma Abedin following behind, Clinton slipped about halfway down the descent, nearly tumbling down.
A man walking in front of her jumped to grab her as she reached for him.
Despite both men helping her get to the bottom of the stairs, she slipped again, nearly doing the splits.
Huma stopped to watch as Clinton attempted to regain her balance.
Hillary kicked off her sandals to get to the bottom of the stairs.
No one seemed alarmed by the startling display.
Clinton was in the country promoting her book, “What Happened.” Yes, she’s still bitter about losing to President Trump.
A couple accused of waterboarding their 12-year-old daughter have reached a plea deal.
Last year, Malisa and Dion Stevens, of Aliquippa, allegedly waterboarded the girl to punish her.
Under the deal, the couple will be on probation for five to seven years.
The family can also be reunited under supervision.
“We have entered into a tentative plea agreement with the district attorney’s office. It’s my hope that the agreement will be upheld. It’s an agreement that is geared toward family unification,” defense attorney Lee Rothman said.
The details of the agreement will be worked out at a future court hearing, but the Stevens would plead guilty to a felony county of endangering the welfare of a child.
“The district attorney’s office has also agreed to lift the no contact order with the mother and father with their child, and they’re to have no violent contact and there will be unification process through Children and Youth Family Services,” Rothman said.
“My client Mr. Dion Stevens’ goal was to reunify with his daughter and I believe that his daughter has expressed the same token here today, and after discussing it with the DA, I think we are on the next step to reach that goal,” defense attorney Brandon Eberle said.
The incident happened last April at their Main Street home.
Missouri is changing its basis for discrimination claims. Victims will now have to prove what the "motivating" factor is behind the discrimination, which the NAACP says is "legalizing discrimination in Missouri." The NAACP is now issuing a travel warning about visiting the state. Jericka Duncan has the story.
The U.S. State Department warned its citizens about traveling to parts of Mexico including Cancun and Playa del Carmen, as homicides rise at resorts popular with American tourists.
The advisory issued on Tuesday upgraded the warnings for two states, Quintana Roo and Baja California Sur, saying turf wars between crime gangs have led to a surge in violence. The only warning for Quintana Roo in a December statement was about lack of cellular and Internet service in some areas.
Theresa May dramatically pointed the finger at Vladimir Putin tonight over the nerve gas attack on a former spy.
The Prime Minister said the facts increasingly suggested Russia was behind the apparent 'hit' on double-agent Sergei Skripal in Salisbury.
Branding the attack a 'reckless and despicable act', Mrs May said the substance used was a 'military grade' agent Moscow has produced.
Together with Russia's previous actions and tactics, including the killing of Alexander Litvinenko, the UK authorities had concluded it was 'highly likely' to be involved in the episode.
In a tough statement updating MPs after a meeting of the National Security Council, Mrs May raised the prospect of significant retaliation - making clear that the UK is already consulting Nato and other allies.
'It is now clear that Mr Skripal and his daughter were poisoned with military grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia,' Mrs May said.
'This is part of a group of nerve agents known as novichok.'
Russia's ambassador was summoned to the Foreign Office at 3.45 for a 'cool but firm' meeting with Boris Johnson. There was no handshake between the politicians as Mr Johnson outlined the 'outrage' felt by the British people.
Harriet Sugarcookie, 22, runs her own adult movie company and has won a raft of awards for her videos.
The cam girl and model has been raking in up to £150,000 a year with tens of thousands of adoring fans.
Now Harriet is looking to make a flick with a cyborg as production and demand skyrockets.
Brothels across Europe are offering kinky dolls instead of real women, amid claims internet porn is warping men’s minds.
Asked whether sex robots might encroach on the porn industry, Harriet told Daily Star Online: “I hope so! I’d get to sleep in more while my sexy robot army works!
“I’d definitely try making a video with a robot. Just for the experience and I am an over-sharer.”
But Harriet thinks cyborgs have a long way to go before they can feature heavily in X-rated films.
She added: “For sex robots to be interesting on screen I think they would need to mimic human feelings and emotions.
To kick of his Sunday evening show on CNN March 11, host Van Jones warmly welcomed media mogul Oprah Winfrey by fangirling over how much he missed seeing her on television and pleading with her to give "us" “hope” for America’s future, with President Trump in office.
“We miss you so much! Do you miss us?” the CNN host eagerly greeted the media personality the left so desperately wanted to run against Trump in 2020. “It meant so much to us,” Jones praised, [but] I have to let you know how it is for us now,” he said somberly.
Jones then lumped in Oprah with the Obamas and bemoaned how there was no “hope” anymore because of the universe’s sick joke to put Trump in the White House:
“We had you. We had the Obamas in the White House. Even on a bad day, you had a North Star. You had some hope. And then it was like the universe looked just said, psych! And threw us in the toilet and closed the lid and now we’re just stuck in this crazy situation, swirling,” he gushed.
“We have each other,” Winfrey reassured Jones, before urging him to stay away from the “hysteria and negativity.”
“I have to just say everybody is feeding yourself on the hysteria and negativity. You got to stay in the light,” Winfrey said, before putting a plug in for her new movie, A Wrinkle In Time.
Even though Jones was clearly referring to President Trump and his administration, Winfrey instead cited the violence in the culture as “the darkness” instead, citing the recent Parkland shooting, as well as Ferguson and the gun violence on the streets of Chicago, urging Jones to not give away “energy” to your “opponents:”
OPRAH WINFREY: So if you put the focus on, look at what happened with the darkness that showed up in Parkland and the darkness that showed up on the streets of Ferguson and the darkness in many, many, many, many, many, many homes in Chicago with shootings and senseless murders...do not give your energy to the other side. Do not spend all your time talking about your opponents. Do not give your energy to that which you really don't believe in.
“But help us, though!” Jones pleaded, explaining that he tried to stay positive, but was always confronted by his peers to “go low” and fight the “Nazis” on the (presumably) other side.
“I go out there and I try to tell people, let's not become what we are fighting. Let's not be what we're fighting. They tell me, shut up, Van, because we got bigots out here, we got Nazis out here, we’re getting bullied, we are tired of going high. We want to go low and kick them in the private parts!” he complained.
Vice President Mike Pence told Fox News' Sean Hannity on Monday that ABC News star Joy Behar called him to apologize for mocking his Christian faith -- and he urged her to apologize to “tens of millions of Americans who were equally offended” during the conversation.
Pence spoke on a range of topics including Behar’s recent comments -- which have led the Media Research Center to launch a campaign to hold Behar accountable for spewing “anti-Christian bigotry” after she said that communicating with Jesus is a “mental illness” during a Feb. 13 episode of “The View.”
“I give Joy Behar a lot of credit. She picked up the phone. She called me. She was very sincere, and she apologized and one of the things my faith teaches me is grace; forgive as you've been forgiven,” Pence told Hannity.
Hannity told Pence that his faith also taught him to forgive but added, “I'm not as good at it as you.”
