Trump’s Immigration Crackdown Is Likely to Bring a Flood of Lawsuits

President Donald Trump’s plan to round up and deport millions of undocumented immigrants is likely to trigger waves of lawsuits that may soon dwarf the legal fight over the administration’s temporary ban on travelers from seven Muslim majority countries.

The Department of Homeland Security is pushing ahead with what the American Civil Liberties Union calls a “hyper-aggressive mass deportation policy.” The crackdown mandated by the president’s Jan. 25 executive order includes hiring thousands more border patrol and immigration agents and building a wall along the Mexican border.

Fed still not too worried about inflation

Inflation has climbed sharply in the U.S. since bottoming out in 2015 at a six-year low, but Federal Reserve honchos see little chance that higher prices will endanger the economy anytime soon.

Most senior Fed’s officials agreed at their recent meeting in Washington there’s “only a modest risk” inflation will rise substantially above the central bank’s 2% target. And even if inflation did climb faster than expected they’d have “ample time to respond,” according to minutes of the Fed’s two-day meeting that ended Feb. 1.

Jimmy Kimmel on Oscars Hosting, Donald Trump Jokes, Hillary Clinton

Being asked to host the Oscars isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Last December when Jimmy Kimmel was at the airport, coming home from a relaxing family vacation in Hawaii, he took a phone call from his agent with the offer. After he hung up — “my response was not one of enthusiasm,” he confesses — he dreaded facing his wife, TV writer- producer Molly McNearney, who had lived through his hosting the Emmys just three months earlier.

EXCLUSIVE: White House Fingers John McCain As Media Leak; Believes U.S. Senator Eavesdropped on Trump’s Classified Phone

This could be the beginning of the end for embattled Sen. John McCain’s life in politics. According to White House officials, McCain is believed to have somehow gained access to the content of President Donald Trump’s private, classified telephone calls with world leaders.

An analysis of McCain’s recent public statements by White House officials, coupled with information from intelligence personnel working with the Trump administration, paints a disturbing picture for McCain — or any elected U.S. politician. Officials believe the senator has inside knowledge of a number of President Trump’s telephone conversations, including at least one conversation with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Conservatives Want Obamacare Repeal, and They Want It Now

Conservatives rallying here are calling for their congressional brethren to keep the faith and quickly gut the 2010 health care law, dismissing concerns about lost health coverage and motivated voters at town halls.

Reported remarks by former Speaker John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, far away from the conservatives gathered at the convention hotel provided the latest cause for alarm. Boehner had said that repeal and replace was “not going to happen,” according to Politico.
