The National ICE Council, which endorsed Trump in 2016, sent the president a blistering letter, complaining of catch-and-release procedures and political showmanship in Washington, D.C.
Catch-and-release is forcing ICE officers to devote long hours to mundane tasks, keeping them from performing their usual duties of catching illegal aliens and dangerous criminals.
Former Trump administration national security adviser Michael Flynn is not ready to be sentenced yet because "there may be additional cooperation" he can offer as he tries to reduce his potential punishment, according to a court filing Tuesday night.
Flynn has been cooperating with prosecutors in Virginia in an ongoing case against two former business associates accused of illegally lobbying for Turkey. That case is scheduled for trial in July, and because of Flynn's continued cooperation, his lawyers asked in a court filing Tuesday to be able to submit another status report in 90 days.
Former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. bankers Tim Leissner and Roger Ng were banned from the industry by the U.S. Federal Reserve for their role in helping divert billions of dollars from the Malaysian state fund 1MDB.
Leissner and Ng coordinated bond offerings that allowed funds to be stolen from 1MDB, the Fed said in a Tuesday statement. Some of the money was used to bribe government officials in Malaysia and Abu Dhabi, and criminals also used proceeds to pay for lavish lifestyles, according to regulator.
President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed a massive package of public lands legislation made up of more than 100 individual bills that were introduced by 50 senators and several U.S. House members.
"President Trump knows that federal lands are meant to provide both peace and prosperity for the American people, and signing this bill allows us to continue managing public lands in a balanced way," David Bernhardt, acting Department of Interior secretary, said in a statement. "This bill is extremely beneficial to the American people, and I look forward to working with Congress and local communities to implement the many local conservation wins within the bill."
"For the first time in over 10 years, we have money in this budget for a return to the moon with humans," Bridenstine said in a presentation at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. "I'm talking human-rated landers, compatible with Gateway, that can go back and forth to the surface of the moon."
Bridenstine dedicated a lot of discussion to the Gateway, also called the Lunar Orbital Platform-Gateway (and formerly the Deep Space Gateway), which is a proposed moon-orbiting outpost that would serve as a waystation to the lunar surface and as a research station. The Gateway is fully funded in the 2020 budget proposal, Bridenstine said.
Boeing, however, has said it has no reason to pull the popular aircraft from the skies. It doesn't intend to issue any new recommendations about the aircraft to its customers. Its technical team joined American, Israeli and other aviation experts in the investigation led by Ethiopian authorities.
Here is the list of countries:
Australia, Brazil, Cayman Islands, China, Ethiopia, European Union, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Norway, Singapore, South Korea, Turkey, United Kingdom.
A divided federal appeals court on Tuesday upheld the constitutionality of an Ohio law that blocks state funding for Planned Parenthood, reversing its own prior ruling and handing a victory to anti-abortion advocates.
In an 11-6 vote, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati rejected the argument by Planned Parenthood affiliates that the funding ban, which also covered non-abortion services, violated their due process rights.
Cardinal George Pell, the highest-ranking Catholic clergyman ever convicted of child sex crimes, will face a rare live court broadcast Wednesday as he appears before a judge in Melbourne, Australia to receive his sentence.
Pell was the Vatican’s treasurer and a close adviser to Pope Francis until February, when he took a leave of absence to face sex abuse charges in his home country of Australia. He was found unanimously guilty in December of assaulting two 13-year-old choir boys during the mid-1990s in the sacristy of St. Patrick’s, when Pell was the archbishop of Melbourne.
With the confirmation of a nominee to the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, President Trump has for the first time in his presidency flipped an appeals court to now have a majority of Republican-appointed judges.
Matey, 48, is a partner at Lowenstein Sandler and was first nominated to the federal bench in April. The conservative judge also served as deputy chief counsel to former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a Republican during the "Bridgegate" controversy.
With his confirmation, the 3rd Circuit will now have a 7-6 majority of judges appointed by Republican presidents. When Trump took office in January 2017, there were five Republican-appointed judges and seven Democrat-appointed judges on the court.
The presiding judge of Cook County’s criminal division decided Tuesday to allow cameras in the courtroom at “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett’s next appearance Thursday on criminal charges he faces.
But Judge LeRoy Martin Jr. said he will let whoever is appointed Thursday to preside over the high-profile case to ultimately decide if court proceedings beyond Thursday’s brief hearing can be video-recorded.
Attorney Michael Avenatti announced Tuesday that he is no longer representing adult-film star Stormy Daniels, who said she has hired a new lawyer.
Avenatti said in a statement posted to Twitter that he is terminating his legal representation of Daniels "for various reasons that we cannot disclose publicly," adding that he informed Daniels of the decision last month.
The New York attorney general has subpoenaed records from Deutsche Bank related to three large loans the bank extended to President Trump’s company in recent years — and a fourth loan that Trump sought to buy the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, according to two sources familiar with the subpoenas.
Deutsche Bank had already received requests for documents from the House’s Financial Services and Intelligence committees. This new inquiry seems to signal that New York Attorney General Letitia James (D) is investigating the same loans.
After a brief ceremony, the remains were taken from Myanmar's second-largest city, Mandalay, to a laboratory in the United States for further analysis and identification.
"We remember. You are not forgotten," said the U.S. ambassador to Myanmar, Scot Marciel, at the ceremony. He said the mission was meant to honor the memory of the fallen service members and to show appreciation for their service.
Rep. Doug Collins on Tuesday released a 370-page transcript of a deposition that former FBI attorney Lisa Page gave to Congress in July.
“The American people deserve to know what transpired in the highest echelons of the FBI during that tumultuous time for the bureau,” Mr. Collins said.
Curious why I think FB has too much power? Let's start with their ability to shut down a debate over whether FB has too much power. Thanks for restoring my posts. But I want a social media marketplace that isn't dominated by a single censor. #BreakUpBigTechhttps://t.co/UPS6dozOxn
The IRA claimed responsibility for four letter bombs found in London and Glasgow Tuesday, and told police there is a fifth explosive that has yet to be found.
The four devices arrived at three buildings in London and the University of Glasgow on March 5 and 6, CNN reported. Police issued a statement saying the devices resembled those used by “dissident groups associated with Northern-Ireland related terrorism,” and that police opened a line of inquiry into that possibility.
