In a major policy shift, the Homeland Security and Justice departments are promising to prosecute everyone suspected of illegally entering the United States. The new approach will separate thousands of children from their parents when they are arrested, which critics called inhumane. “We need legality and integrity in our immigration system. That’s why the Department of Homeland Security is now referring 100 percent of illegal Southwest border crossings to the Department of Justice for prosecution,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said at a news conference in San Diego on Monday. “If you cross this border unlawfully, then we will prosecute you. It’s that simple. If you smuggle illegal aliens across our border, then we will prosecute you. If you are smuggling a child, then we will prosecute you and that child may be separated from you as required by law,” Sessions said as a protester with a bullhorn interrupted his remarks. Politico reported Monday … [Read more...] about Homeland Security Promises to Prosecute 100 Percent of Illegal Immigration Cases

When a 29-year-old man from Uzbekistan plowed a truck into a crowd of people in Manhattan in October, killing eight, President Trump's response to the attack as a matter of homeland security was swift. Within hours, the president decried the attack and attacker as having been carried out by a "sick and deranged person," implied an affiliation with ISIS, and said he had ordered the Department of Homeland Security step up the "Extreme Vetting Program." But when 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz allegedly massacred 17 people with a gun at a high school in South Florida last week, the president — in his initial tweet and in a speech to the nation the following day — said nothing of the suspect, or any need to step up homeland security-related efforts. More than 400 people have been shot since the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in 2012 that rocked the nation, according to a New York Times analysis. A Washington Post analysis discovered more than 150,000 students at 170 schools have … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Should we rethink school shootings as a homeland security threat?
Americans will be able to use their driver's licenses after May 11 to travel by air after all. effective date of the Real ID Act until January 15, 2013, a move that avoided causing tremendous disruptions to air travel. The reason that Homeland Security granted the delay is that, apart from some Republican stalwarts in Congress, this law creating a digital nationalized ID is hardly popular, with critics calling it a national ID card. A chart (PDF) updated last month by the National Conference of State Legislatures lists 16 states with laws forbidding them to comply with Real ID and eight states including Colorado, Hawaii, and Illinois that have enacted resolutions effectively boycotting it. Once the regulations take full effect, the impact on Americans would be dramatic: Residents of those 24 states including Arizona, Georgia, Oregon, and Washington would not be able to use their drivers' licenses to fly or enter a federal building such as a courthouse, even for jury duty.

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions (NASDAQ: KTOS) and CSRA (NYSE: CSRA) are two very different businesses, but they are both reliant on the U.S. government -- specifically the Pentagon -- for the bulk of their revenue. While Kratos is focused on high-tech military hardware, CSRA's expertise is in software and running large IT networks. Though neither is as well known as the prime defense giants, both are in areas that have attracted considerable attention from investors in recent years.

WASHINGTON — The Oval Office meeting President Trump convened Thursday with key lawmakers to discuss immigration was a profanity-laced, tense tete-a-tete where the dozen or so participants passionately talked over each other.What Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, one of the attendees, did not recall during testimony on Capitol Hill Tuesday was the president uttering the term "shithole" — or any similar vulgarity — in describing African and some Latin American countries."I did not hear that word used," she told Vermont Democrat Sen. Pat Leahy during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. "No sir."Sen. Richard Durbin, D-Ill., Friday accused Trump of uttering the term more than once during last week's meeting to negotiate the fate of some 700,000 immigrants who were brought into the country illegally but are protected from deportation through the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

SAN DIEGO — The Trump administration would consider immigration legislation that includes a pathway to citizenship for hundreds of thousands of young people, the U.S. Homeland Security secretary said Tuesday, while emphasizing no decision on that issue has been made and a border wall remains the priority. Congress is considering three options, including citizenship or permanent legal status for people who were temporarily shielded from deportation, Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in an interview. Details on qualifying for citizenship, including on how many years to wait and other requirements, would have to be addressed. Asked whether the president would support citizenship, she said, “I think he’s open to hearing about the different possibilities and what it means but, to my knowledge, there certainly hasn’t been any decision from the White House.” In September, Trump said he wouldn’t consider citizenship for DACA recipients — an Obama-era … [Read more...] about Trump administration would consider pathway to citizenship for DACA recipients, Homeland Security chief says
