KENOSHA - President Donald Trump came to Wisconsin Tuesday to talk manufacturing and sign a "Buy American, Hire American" executive order.But he ended up making a dramatic intervention in the simmering trade dispute between Canada and the United States over milk."We’re going to stand up for our dairy farmers in Wisconsin," Trump told an audience gathered at tool manufacturer Snap-on Inc. "And I’ve been reading about it. And I’ve been talking about it for a long time. And that demands, really, immediately fair trade with all of our trading partners and that includes Canada. Because in Canada some very unfair things have happened to our dairy farmers and others."Recently, Grassland Dairy Products of Greenwood notified about 75 Wisconsin farms that as of May 1, it is canceling their contracts because it has lost its Canadian business.At issue are changes in Canadian policy that make it harder for U.S. dairy processors to sell ultra-filtered milk, used to make … [Read more...] about President Donald Trump touts manufacturing, promises help for Wisconsin dairy farmers at Snap-on in Kenosha

The number of refugees arriving in Arizona and across the nation has plummeted, according to a May Pew Research Center report, a decline that coincides with President Donald Trump’s ban on travel and limits on refugees admitted to the country.All but four states have reported declines in monthly arrivals. Declines are steepest in states like Arizona, California and Texas, which have received the highest number of refugees in recent years.In October, the beginning of the fiscal year, 547 refugees (excluding special immigrant visas and certain humanitarian parole entrants) arrived in Arizona. In April, that number dropped to 87 new refugee arrivals. For this same period, California dropped from 814 to 338 and Texas dropped from 1,096 to 353.The president's revised order blocked travel by people from six Muslim-majority countries.Refugee-resettlement groups say confusion and fear among refugee communities are partly to blame for the decline. But the biggest factor appears to be a … [Read more...] about Did President Donald Trump’s executive order spur a decline in refugees in Arizona and 45 other states?

Many have witnessed this … [Read more...] about Draft text of Donald Trump’s acceptance speech for Republican nomination
When Donald Trump takes office as the nation's 45th president on Jan. 20, he will undertake a far-reaching agenda that will have particular resonance in Arizona.His signature campaign promises focused on immigration and trade, key issues for a border state such as Arizona.But like other presidents, Trump, the Republican celebrity billionaire outsider who shook the world Tuesday with his victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton, probably will learn that achieving goals in Washington, D.C., is difficult and often slow-going. And given the divisiveness and bitter aftermath of the election, Trump may be lucky to get any sort of a honeymoon."You don't just push buttons and get things done automatically in the White House," said Ken Khachigian, who was chief speechwriter and senior White House adviser to President Ronald Reagan. "It's just not realistic to think that all of those things can be done at once. Plus, he's going to be tested by some foreign leaders. He's … [Read more...] about Donald Trump made campaign promises.

The Republican Party must be in full-on faint mode.First, Donald Trump declares that Mexico is shipping all its rapists and murderers over the border. Then he vows to build an "impenetrable" wall and make Mexico pay for it.Every time he opens his rather expansive mouth, his poll numbers rise and on Thursday, Trump tossed out yet another bombshell. The D said he might run as an independent if the Republican Party isn't "fair" to him."I'll have to see how I'm being treated by the Republicans," Trump told the The Hill. "Absolutely, if they're not fair, that would be a factor."No doubt, Hillary has already sent him a thank-you note and an engraved invitation to a front-row seat at her inauguration.As for Republicans? They're likely taking a hefty snort of smelling salts. A third-party Trump candidacy leaves Republicans DOA in 2016.They have no one to blame but themselves.Donald Trump is just another chump if the Republican Congress had actually done something about illegal … [Read more...] about Republican Party could have saved itself from Donald Trump (and here’s how)
More than 75 professors from Arizona's three state universities have signed a national petition denouncing President Donald Trump's executive order on immigration as discriminatory and detrimental to the country.Officials at Arizona State University and the University of Arizona are advising international students and scholars to postpone any international travel for the time being.The petition, Academics Against Executive Immigration Order, said the president's actions unfairly target a large group of immigrants and non-immigrants based on their countries of origin, where the majority populations are Muslim. The professors write that "the ethnic and religious profiling" are in stark contrast to the country's values and principles.They are concerned the order will tear apart families by restricting entry for family members who live outside the United States and limiting travel for those who live and work in the United States."This … [Read more...] about Arizona university professors: Donald Trump’s immigration executive order is un-American
The president faces a choice that will show America whether he is strong enough to chart his own course – or if he is easily swayed by prevailing political winds.Lives are at stake. The lives of young people who are called "dreamers" for good reason.They are currently protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, that Trump is being pushed to dismantle.Trump has choices. Huge ones.He can allow himself to be forced into action by a group of attorneys general with an agenda.He can go along with those who want to use the DACA kids as a bargaining chip to get funding for his border wall through Congress.Both choices represent capitulation rather than leadership.A third choice: Trump can be true to his February promise to “deal” with the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program “with heart.” EDITORIAL: Trump can take the target off dreamers' backs This is a decision of great magnitude. The lives and … [Read more...] about Our View: Is Donald Trump man enough to save DACA?
Sen. Jeff Flake on Saturday denounced as "unacceptable" President Donald Trump and his administration's attempt to detain and deport refugees and even green-card holders stuck at airports following Trump's Friday directive restricting refugees and legal immigration from Syria and six other Muslim-majority countries.Writing on the website Medium.com, Flake, an Arizona Republican who is up for re-election in 2018, seemed to agree with Trump that the issue is a national security priority but suggested Trump's executive order was too broad in its effort to counter terrorism."President Trump and his administration are right to be concerned about national security, but it’s unacceptable when even legal permanent residents are being detained or turned away at airports and ports of entry," wrote Flake, who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations and Judiciary committees. "Enhancing long term national security requires that we have a clear-eyed view of radical Islamic terrorism … [Read more...] about Sen. Jeff Flake: President Donald Trump’s refugee action ‘unacceptable’
Judith Jimenez was already house hunting when Donald Trump won the presidential election in November. She decided to go ahead and buy anyway.Now she risks losing the house, and everything else she has worked for, if President Donald Trump reverses Barack Obama's executive actions on immigration."It would definitely put a stop to our dreams, for now," said Jimenez, 35, a Phoenix resident whose parents brought her from Mexico City to the U.S. when she was 11. "But I guess we would do what all immigrants have done throughout history, which is try to survive."Surviving won't be easy.Ending Obama's immigration actions would revoke work permits and deportation deferments for Jimenez and more than 752,000 other young people approved for Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program for undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. as children. That means Jimenez would no longer be able to work legally in the U.S.If that happens, Jimenez, … [Read more...] about How ‘dreamers’ are preparing in case Donald Trump ends Obama immigration actions
WASHINGTON — It's been 18 months since Donald Trump, presidential candidate, called for "a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on."It's been nearly six months since Trump, as president-elect, was asked if terror attacks in Europe had affected his proposed Muslim ban. "You know my plans," he said. "All along, I've been proven to be right."And it's been less than a week since President Trump trumpeted the travel ban he first proposed in January, which would have shut down virtually all travel from seven majority-Muslim countries while giving Christians preferential treatment. "The Justice Dept. should have stayed with the original Travel Ban, not the watered down, politically correct version they submitted to S.C.," he tweeted.Now "S.C." — the Supreme Court — may have the last word on whether those words of Trump's matter.
