Homeland security expert: Citizenship screening lacks questions about potential terrorist ties

Recent analysis from homeland-security expert Mark Sauter shows U.S. vetting of immigrants seeking citizenship status isn’t as thorough as it should be when it comes to filtering those with ties to top terror groups. The Washington Examiner has the story: While State Department and the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service branch of the Department of Homeland Security do ask if immigrants have been involved in terrorism, the most well-known of over a dozen terrorist groups aren't listed in applications, according to the analysis from homeland security expert Mark A. Sauter… Sauter, the author of Homeland Security, a McGraw-Hill textbook ...

This gun-toting American woman has medaled at the last six consecutive Olympic games – so why haven’t we heard about her?

California native and women’s skeet-shooting bronze medalist Kim Rhode’s road to Rio was one marked by obstacles: a challenging pregnancy, surgery, the death of numerous friends. "What the Olympics represent is that journey,” Rhode told NBC. “Overcoming those bumps, the obstacles, the good, the bad.” To top it off, Rhode’s historic Olympic career – the longevity of which is rivaled by few other Olympians – hasn’t gotten the accolades it deserves. “Were she involved in any other Olympic sports, she would be seen as a wonderful spokesperson. She is a mother and a wife. She plays ‘Pokemon Go’ and Clash of Clans. She ...

Calif. Rep. McClintock: U.S. national debt is ‘out of control’

Tom McClintock during a recent speaking engagement in El Dorado Hills, California underscored how severely in the hole our nation is from a financial perspective – something we’ve known for years but need Congress to act on right away.

Rep. Brat: ICE tells me ‘No. 1 problem’ facing federal immigration authorities is local authorities ignoring detainers

Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.) is optimistic about legislation he has coming down the pike that would increase immigration controls and choke funding for terrorist organizations in an effort to enhance national security under an administration that has been lax in that area. The Washington Examiner has the details: Federal detention policy enforcement has been loosened under the Obama administration, and local law enforcement agencies sometimes refuse to comply when requests are submitted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
