The Biden administration has let 2 million illegal immigrants speed through a system that is supposed to limit entry into the United States on a “case-by-case” basis, according to data from the Department of Homeland Security. The so-called parole system, which offers Social Security numbers and worker permits, has spun through one illegal immigrant “roughly every 28 seconds,” according to an analysis of the new data conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies. “In the first nine months of FY 2023, DHS paroled in nearly 870,000 facially inadmissible aliens with no legal right to be here ..read more

The decision marks the high court’s first major Second Amendment decision since its landmark ruling in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v.

The campaign to reelect President Joe Biden is planning on spending millions in North Carolina, hopeful they can flip the state blue as the Obama-Biden ticket once did.  Biden’s campaign has 16 offices and hired more than 60 staff members in the state so far, which is more than he invested in the state in 2020 and Hillary Clinton did in 2016. The Biden campaign has spent $5.2 million in the Tar Heel state as of June 19, an investment that could force former President Donald Trump’s campaign to spend money in the Republican-leaning state. So far, Trump’s campaign has not spent anything in ..read more

Former President Donald Trump has made it a point to do something that most, if not all, previous Republican presidential candidates have failed to do in recent years: actively engage the black American community and try to earn their vote. On Saturday, in Philadelphia, Trump is doing exactly that by holding a rally in a predominantly “black and brown” (as the Left likes to say) neighborhood. And it seems to be a historic rally given that no other Republican candidate has seemingly held such a campaign event in such a neighborhood in Philadelphia in recent memory.   As former President ..read more

Former President Donald Trump‘s interest in selecting Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) as his vice president is setting off alarm bells for Democrats. The Florida senator and one-time rival of Trump has turned into a reliable ally and offers the former president a direct line to a bloc Republicans have been flirting with taking from Democrats for years — Latino and Hispanic voters. While Latino and Hispanic voters aren’t a monolith, creating in-roads with them would put several states Democrats have taken for granted in recent cycles in play, Michael LaRosa, who is a former press secretary for fir ..read more

Louisiana activated the latest “separation of church and state” hysteria this week when Gov. Jeff Landry (R-LA) signed legislation requiring all classrooms to display a poster of the Ten Commandments. The response was predictable howling that the legislation violated the separation of church and state. The American Civil Liberties Union announced it would file a lawsuit against the new law and condemned it as “religious coercion.” Landry, to his credit, declared he “can’t wait to be sued” and said if anyone wants to “respect the rule of law,” he must “start from the original law giver, which w ..read more

(The Center Square) — The Pennsylvania Opioid Trust made progress in greenlighting county projects, but the majority of funds sent out since 2021 have yet to be spent. “Having sent our money out in 2021, we still have only spent $70 million of the more than $200 million,” said Tom VanKirk, chair of the Pennsylvania Opioid Misuse and Addiction Abatement Trust during a Thursday meeting. “There is still a need to get the money spent as quickly as possible on proper uses.” Counties, which will receive 70% of the opioid trusts available from a number of national settlements, will be granted extensi ..read more
