Sessions Defends Withholding Funding: No Tolerance for Loss of ‘Innocent Lives’ in Sanctuary Cities

Attorney General Jeff Sessions said Wednesday that a sanctuary city is a “trafficker, smuggler, or predator’s best friend,” specifically taking a whack at Chicago, the first sanctuary city to sue the Justice Department for withholding federal grants. “If voters in Chicago are concerned about losing federal grant money: Call your mayor,” @USAGSessions says. Sessions heralded Miami-Dade County, the first jurisdiction to reverse its sanctuary policy after President Donald Trump took office, as an example of how localities can work with federal officials who enforce immigration law. “I know that Miami-Dade will be an example of the good that comes from following the law. We have already seen that: The same Independence Day weekend when Chicago suffered more than 100 shootings and 15 homicides, Miami-Dade also had a historic number of shooting deaths—zero,” Sessions … Read entire article »

Gaetz was explaining why he decided to back a small caucus of House conservatives in its strategy to force a floor vote on a bill mirroring the Obamacare repeal passed in December 2015. The House Freedom Caucus announced Friday its plan to collect the 218 signatures required on a “discharge petition” to pull that legislation out of committee. The Daily Signal heard from eight House members on how they stand on the strategy. “I signed the discharge petition because the … Read entire article »

Eliminating Down Syndrome Children Is Not Something to Be Proud Of

This week, the CBS News program “On Assignment” included a long feature on what it described as the near eradication of Down syndrome in Iceland. As the story unfolded, viewers learned of the impact of genetic screening and abortion on a countrywide scale. On that tiny island, known to people mostly for its geothermal pools and Northern Lights, what one scientist called “heavy-handed genetic counseling” has led to the death in utero of nearly every boy and girl affected by Down syndrome. The CBS News report focused on a single nation, but the trend toward elimination of children with Down syndrome is tragically widespread. New genetic screening tools available earlier in pregnancy have exacerbated this situation, leading to the lethal rejection of the majority, perhaps the vast majority, of these children worldwide. In France, an … Read entire article »
