DACA debate intensifies as budget deadline nears

Published

on

As the Jan. 19 deadline for Congress to pass a budget nears, debate is heating up surrounding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

“Today the Republicans and Democrats in Congress shared their priorities for a bipartisan spending agreement,” said Sen A. Mitchell “Mitch” McConnell Jr. in a press release.

DACA, a 2012 executive order signed by President Barack H. Obama, allows some children of illegal immigrants to remain in the country without risk for deportation for a renewable period of two years. President Donald J. Trump ended the program in September.

“We had a positive and productive meeting and all parties have agreed to continue discussing a path forward to quickly resolve all of the issues ahead of us,” said House Minority Leader Nancy P. Pelosi (D.-Calif.) and Sen. Charles E. “Chuck” Schumer (D.-N.Y.) in a joint statement.

On Dec. 29, Trump specified some of his terms for keeping DACA.

He went on to criticize Democrats for political partisanship in a tweet on Jan. 2, suggesting that some on the left may cross party lines.

Many Democrats have been speaking out in favor of keeping DACA.

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D.-Calif.) said that we made a promise to protect DACA recipients, so-called “Dreamers,” from deportation and that we must honor that promise.

Likewise, Sen. Richard J. “Dick” Durbin (D.-Ill.) tweeted his support for the program.

Not all prominent politicians are on board with the potential compromise, though. Kansas Secretary of State and GOP gubernatorial candidate Kris W. Kobach said that he thinks Trump should demand more for DACA inclusion in the spending bill.

“I see the president staking out grounds for the discussion, but I think he needs to take an even stronger position,” said Kobach.

Kobach wants the president to demand nationwide mandatory E-verify, a Department of Homeland Security tool that allows employers to determine the eligibility of potential employees to work in the United States. E-verify usage is currently optional.

Highlighting another point of contention between the parties regarding government spending, McConnell said that it is important that members of Congress do not hold funding for our troops hostage in exchange for immigration concessions.

“It is important that we achieve a two-year agreement that funds our troops and provides for our national security and other critical functions of the Federal government,” he said.

McConnell also blasted Democrats for what he described as an arbitrary notion that the budget must fund an equal amount of military and non-military spending.

Left-Wing Extremist Charged in Alleged Florida Capitol Attack Identified Soros as “Sponsor”

Daniel Alan Baker had bragged of a Soros sponsorship.

Published

on

A left-wing extremist arrested and charged with a terrorist plot to confront and kidnap protestors at the Florida Capitol identified billionaire George Soros as his “sponsor” in a YouTube video. Daniel Alan Baker, 33, has been federally charged with transmitting a threat to kidnap or injure.

Baker appears to have fought overseas with a Kurdish militia group identified as a terrorist organization by the State Department, the Marxist PKK. He’s an Army veteran who appears to have been discharged after going AWOL before a deployment.

Baker has been charged for an alleged plot involving a group of armed leftists surrounding pro-Trump protestors at the Florida Capitol in Tallahassee on the day of Joe Biden’s inauguration. It’s unclear if right-wing protestors even intend to demonstrate at the site, and Baker’s dangerous attempt to incite an armed confrontation may never have advanced beyond speculative stages.

A “call to arms” flier seen on Baker’s YouTube channel calls for Florida residents to surround supposed “racists” and to “trap them inside” the State Capitol, advocating for the kidnapping of supposed Inauguration demonstrators.

In a YouTube video calling for doxxing attempts on individuals present at the raucous US Capitol riot, Baker brags of having acquired the globalist oligarch as a “sponsor,” implying that the megabillionaire had provided him with an “antifa card.”

Baker’s remarks may have been hyperbole, intentionally seeking to draw attention from critics of the Hungarian-born liberal kingpin.

A charging affidavit also alleges that Baker advocated for the assassination of United States military officers on his YouTube channel, a threat that could potentially incur even more serious criminal charges.

The FBI believes that Baker intended to assassinate Turkish military personnel training in the United States, and that he was on the scene during Seattle’s Capital Hill Autonomous Zone anarchist rebellion. Baker identified himself as a “hardcore leftist” on his personal social media, as well, urging his followers to “prepare for war” after the November 3rd election.
