1…………> Handcuffs After ICE Broom: 7-11 Stores

Hundreds of U.S. immigration agents flooded out to nearly 100 7-Eleven convenience stores nationwide, arresting 21 people suspected of being in the country illegally and giving owners a tight deadline to prove other employees are authorized to work.

“Today’s actions send a strong message to U.S. businesses that hire and employ an illegal workforce: ICE will enforce the law, and if you are found to be breaking the law, you will be held accountable,” ICE Deputy Director Thomas Homan said in a statement.–finance.html?.tsrc=fauxdal



2…………> The DACA Prisoners: Congress

San Francisco District Judge William Alsup  blocked US President Donald Trump’s administration from phasing out DACA, the Obama-era immigration policy that allowed young undocumented individuals who had arrived in the US as children to be given work permits and a renewable two-year period of deferred action for deportation, a decision based on a contradicting tweets by the president supporting the program.

On September 5, Trump tweeted: “Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!”
Following the opinion expressed above, on September 6 Mr. Trump tweeted: “Congress now has 6 months to legalize DACA (something the Obama Administration was unable to do). If they can’t, I will revisit this issue!”

In his recent ruling, Judge Alsup wrote, “We seem to be in the unusual position wherein the ultimate authority over the agency, the Chief Executive, publicly favors the very program the agency has ended.



3…………> Bosnian War Criminal:Chicago

A Bosnian man named Jovo Asentic, 65 residing in Chicago, who served as an officer in the Bosnian conflict during the 1990s, was deported by deportation officers with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) for his failure to disclose his service in the Army of Republika Srpska Zvornik Brigade from 1992 to 1996. 
Court evidence indicated that he was on duty in July 1995 in an area blocking escape routes during the Srebrenica genocide, where 7,000 to 8,000 Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed by Bosnian Serb forces.

4…………> A Fallen Star: Steve Bannon

Alt-right superstar Steve Bannon, the mysterious “conservative brain” hailed as the mastermind behind President Donald Trump’s victories, was forced to step down from his post at Breitbart due to pressure from not only Trump supporters, but also powerful “string pullers” from the wealthy Mercer family.

Bannon’s legend was blown up in the sky by the 16 inch guns of USS heavy cruiser “Donald Trump” over the treacherous statements cited in the new trashy “Fire and Fury” book by “gadfly” gossip columnist Michael Wolff, a book reportedly full with erroneous omissions, exaggerations and outright lies.

If this was not enough “self made” trouble for Bannon, it was followed by a rift with his very powerful financiers from the the conservative Mercer family, which had played a key part in his rise to power.

The break-up became abundantly clear last week when Rebekah Mercer publicly distanced her camp from Bannon after his remarks on Donald Trump Jr.

“My family and I have not communicated with Steve Bannon in many months and have provided no financial support to his political agenda, nor do we support his recent actions and statements,” she said, pledging her support to “President Trump and the platform upon which he was elected.”

Several new fighter jets including the J-16, J-10C and H-6K bombers were also included in the training, the statement said.
