      Richard Grenell is a wonderful person. I hope he will not have any problems in Germany.

      PT sent him to a powder keg, in my opinion, but he is exceptional and may be a very strategic soldier for POTUS.

      I was hoping he might be in the White House, but PT may need other assistance. Thus, the request.

      God bless you, Richard.

      BB reporting trump will delay enforcement for six months. It seems to have become an accepted norm to just enforce laws whenever those in power decide “it’s the right thing to do”. Law is law.

        I am probably not very smart, but perhaps the president is hoping to use the delay time to leverage comprehensive action on our border situation along with a wall and its total funding!!!!! It becomes a bargaining chip that he can either use or not to get what is most important…THE WALL!!! Then, he can deal with DACA in a manner that best fits the US… but again, I’ve never claimed to be a genius in politics… my wife accuses me of being too trusting!

          Law is law. It is not to be used as leverage for anyone’s purpose. It is there to be enforced. We have a process to amend it or get rid of it. Lack of enforcement and turning a blind eye to our justice system gave us the swamp and 45 million illegals.

            And now the Law will be you have 6 months before you have to go or change your situation somehow.

            It gives people a chance to make their plans and get a move on.

              Yep. That’s the rationale that brought us to our “let’s make a deal” justice system.

              But it also gives Congress six months to pass legislation to keep the freeloaders here! They will probably jump on it and ignore everything else.

                I still do not understand how Congress has jurisdiction over immigration? Thought the Executive Branch has that?

                  Not a gummint scholar, but I believe Congress passes laws and the Administrative Branch, uh, administers them (the laws).

                  Administrative branch writes “rules” to flesh out the intent of what Congress passes as legislative law, but I don’t think they can get too far afield from what Congress intended, else there’d be pushback and a flare-up.

                  Then there’s enforcement. Barky simply instructed his Executive Branch agencies and departments to expressly NOT enforce immigration law on the book and instead subverted it and turned Border Patrol into alien daycare and taxi service of diseased illegals and MS-13 gang members, distributing them all around the US.

                  As well as writing “Executive Action” and “Executive Order” memos like DACA and DAPA, essentially writing law when that’s Congresses job.

                  Just my crude understanding, YMMV

                  The Executive Branch enforces the laws that Congress passes, even on immigration. Goes back all the way to the Naturalization Act of 1790.

                  If Congress passes an unconstitutional law, that is different, isn’t it?

                  When President Trump issued a travel ban for countries that had no working passport of visa services, what was that?

                  replying to WSB:

                  -1- If congress passes an unconstitutional law, I believe the courts will get an opportunity to determine the constitutionality of it

                  -2- Trump’s “travel ban” was, I believe, in the nature of proposing working rules under the relevant law. Executive Branch has some latitude in developing administrative rules with which to carry out laws.

                  Also, in that case, I believe that existing law or prior court rulings or simply a rigorous interpretation of the constitution indicated that the President had full authority and primacy on that issue.

                  I don’t recall hearing that that particular question ever was ruled on by the Supreme Court, I guess changing events made it so that PresTrump did not keep advancing that point but instead revised the rules, I forget exactly what happened.

                  The SC kept the travel ban in place as a stay request until the entire court hears the case this term.

    IRMA’s 5 Day outlook appears more threatening, computer models show possible strikes anywhere between Louisiana to Maryland:

      I am watching this very closely. It looks to me like FL to lower NC should be watching closely. DelMarVa, not so much, especially inland 50mi. But, very bad week for any of the islands.

      … looked like M. O. had gone commando too.

      Melania is going to be her own person. I like that she has a strong identity, big heart and gentle spirit.

      She is our very first First Lady to wear stilettos. Takes strong ankles, svelte figure and skill to walk and climb/descend stairs in them. Even at 21 and a size 5-6, I could not wear them.
