    The Department of Justice has been ordered to respond to motions to unseal the warrant used in the FBI's raid of former President Trump's Mar-a-Lago home.  The magistrate judge who allegedly approved the unprecedented search, Bruce Reinhart, ordered the DOJ to file a response to motions to unseal from the Albany Times Union and conservative group Judicial Watch.  Reinhart said the DOJ's response may be redacted 'as necessary to avoid disclosing matters already under seal.' The DOJ now has until Monday to respond.  Appointed to his current position in 2018, Reinhart, who is believed to have signed the sealed FBI warrant, recused himself in June from a lawsuit between Trump and Hillary Clinton because of 'personal bias.' Trump had sued Clinton, the Democratic National Committee and other political entities for promoting stories he had colluded with Russia during the 2016 campaign.   Eric said lawyer Christina Bobb was forced to wait at the end of a driveway during the search.

    The Biden administration on Wednesday issued new guidance instructing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to refrain from detaining and deporting immigrants who were victims of crimes, barring extraordinary circumstances. By minimizing the "chilling effect" of potential deportation, interim ICE Director Tae Johnson said in a memo to agents, the policy change can encourage immigrants living in the U.S. without legal permission to contact law enforcement and assist investigations. "When victims have access to humanitarian protection, regardless of their immigration status, and can feel safe in coming forward, it strengthens the ability of local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, including ICE, to detect, investigate, and prosecute crimes," Johnson wrote in his memo. The guidance directs ICE agents to use discretion in cases that involve immigrants who have been granted or are applying for an immigration benefit designed to protect victims of crimes like trafficking and domestic abuse.  Under the new policy, deportation officers should also consider not arresting or releasing immigrants who are found to have been victims of crime, even if they don't have a pending...
    A Canadian fugitive accused of sexually assaulting children who was captured at Newark Airport after 17 years on the run was ordered held on kiddie porn charges Monday afternoon. Perth De, also known as “Parthasarthie Kapoor,” 47, had been one of Canada’s “Ten Most Wanted” fugitives when federal agents nabbed him on Jan. 21, 2020 as he tried to fly to his native India from Newark. An examination of several cellphones in his luggage “revealed numerous videos of children being sexually abused,” Acting U.S. Attorney Rachael Honig said. “Some of the videos had been distributed from the cellular phone.” Montreal police had accused Kapoor, a permanent Canadian resident, of sexually assaulting five boys between the 7 and 14 years old after luring them to his home. When he learned that he was wanted, Kapoor fled to the United States and eventually settled in the Bronx, authorities said. A federal magistrate judge in Newark ordered Kapoor held pending further court action on charges of having and distributing child pornography. Honig credited special agents with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security...

The report states that Bin Salman is in control of the Security and Intelligence organizations, so “it is highly unlikely that Saudi agents carried out an operation of this nature. without the authorization of the prince. “ The report finds that seven royal guards of the prince, who “only answer to him”, participated in the murder of the columnist of ‘The Washington Post’. “Prince saw Khashoggi as a threat to the Kingdom and he widely supported violent measures to silence him if necessary, “says the text. Jamal Khashoggi went to manage some documents at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and never made it out alive, since he was killed and quartered by 15 Saudi agents after their criticism of the Saudi Government.
    Reuters February 18, 2021 0 Comments The U.S. government issued interim guidance on Thursday sharply limiting who can be arrested and deported by immigration agents, a move that comes as the Biden administration faces growing pressure from activists to scale back deportations. The guidelines instruct Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to focus on immigrants deemed national security and public safety threats and those who entered the United States after Nov. 1, 2020. Agents will need pre-approval from a senior manager if they want to arrest someone who does not fall into one of those categories. “Like every law enforcement agency at the local, state, and federal level, we must prioritize our efforts to achieve the greatest security and safety impact,” acting ICE Director Tae Johnson said in a statement. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is expected to issue permanent guidelines within 90 days. Biden’s more lenient approach differs dramatically from that of former President Donald Trump, who allowed ICE agents to pursue low-level offenders and non-criminals, as well as people with long ties to the United States....
    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents have reportedly been told to stop using the term “illegal alien” in documents, in favor of “undocumented,” according to a report by the Washington Times. The Times reports: With President Biden in control, ICE has moved to police its agents’ words, telling them the terms “alien” and “illegal alien” may no longer be used in any documents. [Emphasis added] Instead, agents have been ordered to use “undocumented” — as in “undocumented noncitizen” or “undocumented individual.” [Emphasis added] David Shaw, acting assistant director of domestic operations at Homeland Security Investigations, said in a memo that the changes were “an effort to align with current guidance and to ensure consistency in reporting.” His order applies to all official documents, memos and even emails. [Emphasis added] ICE, according to the Times, did not comment. The orders are to be “implemented immediately in all products and correspondence,” Shaw apparently wrote in the memo to ICE agents, and they come as President Joe Biden has sought to halt the use of the term “alien” in federal immigration laws. “Lastly,...
    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents, tasked with enforcing federal immigration law, are being instructed to free all detainees in their custody, as President Joe Biden’s administration halts deportations. An internal January 21 ICE memo, independently reviewed by Breitbart News and first reported by Fox News’s Tucker Carlson, orders agents to “stop all removals,” including land and air deportations. In addition, the memo tells agents that “all cases” of detainees in ICE custody are now to be considered “no significant likelihood of removal in foreseeable future” — suggesting all detainees will need to be released. “Release them all, immediately,” the ICE official wrote to staff in the memo. Typically, if detainees do not have sponsors in the United States, agents can hold an individual in their custody. The memo, though, states that is no longer the case and that even detainees without sponsors must be released. It is unclear if ICE is currently carrying out the mass release of all 14,195 detainees in its custody, 71.45 percent of whom are convicted criminals or have pending criminal charges. These detainees are...
    (CNN)Russian opposition figure Alexey Navalny has told CNN that he is certain Russian leader Vladimir Putin knew of an elaborate shadowing operation by elite agents before he was poisoned."I am totally sure that Putin was aware," Navalny said on Tuesday, during an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour.

And he would never dare it without the direct order of President Putin."The anti-corruption crusader was reacting to an investigation by the group Bellingcat and joined by CNN, which pieced together how a FSB unit followed his team throughout an August trip to Siberia. The investigation found that two teams comprising five or six agents were deployed on Navalny's Siberian trip in August 2020, including people who specialized in toxins and nerve agents.

    HOUSTON CBSDFW.COM/(AP) — The practice of throwing out immigrant children who cross the southern border alone must stop, that according to a federal judge’s ruling on November 18. The judge ordered the Trump administration to halt the policy that has resulted in thousands of rapid deportations of minors during the coronavirus pandemic. U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan issued a preliminary injunction sought by legal groups suing on behalf of children whom the government sought to expel before they could request asylum or other protections under federal law. The Trump administration has expelled at least 8,800 unaccompanied children since March, when it issued an emergency declaration citing the coronavirus as grounds for barring most people crossing the border from remaining in the United States.

Meanwhile, government-funded...
    Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agents were ordered to be ready for possible civil unrest and to prepare to protect federal property in Washington, DC, on Election Day, according to a Friday report. NBC News reports: The agency is regularly tasked with providing additional security around the nation’s capital on inauguration days, but has never stepped in to quell unrest on Election Day. The unprecedented step is in response to nationwide protests and attacks on federal property seen this year, the officials said. ICE, CBP, and the Federal Protective Service are part of the “Protecting American Communities Task Force,” established in June through an executive order by President Trump in response to “anarchists and left-wing extremists” who he said sought to damage monuments and federal buildings. In response to NBC News’s report, a CBP spokesperson said: As a law enforcement component under the DHS Protecting American Communities Task Force (PACT), CBP will continue to provide support, as requested, to the Federal Protective Service to protect Federal facilities and property if needed and to local law enforcement partners if requested. In anticipation of...
