At the same time, my Administration has answered the pleas of the American people for immigration enforcement and border security. By finally enforcing our immigration laws, we will raise wages, help the unemployed, save billions of dollars, and make our communities safer for everyone. We want all Americans to succeed –- but that can't happen in an environment of lawless chaos. We must restore integrity and the rule of law to our borders. For that reason, we will soon begin the construction of a great wall along our southern border. It will be started ahead of schedule and, when finished, it will be a very effective weapon against drugs and crime. As we speak, we are removing gang members, drug dealers and criminals that threaten our communities and prey on our citizens. Bad ones are going out as I speak tonight and as I have promised. To any in Congress who do not believe we should enforce our laws, I would ask you this question: what would you say to the American family that loses their jobs, their income, or a loved one, because America refused to uphold its laws and defend its borders? Our obligation is to serve, protect, and defend the citizens of the United States.

On Tuesday, Facebook decided to block a video advertisement, stating that the ad violated their guidelines around sexual content. However, the ad was merely for a collection of artwork to be auctioned off and the "sexual content" was actually a piece of artwork. Mossgreen , the auction house in Australia who's behind the ad, has spoken out against Facebook's ban. Mossgreen's chief executive, Paul Summer, told The Guardian , "I can't quite believe it, to be honest. I feel I'm not living in the 21st century. It's like Facebook are living in the 1950s."

As a noble lord has pointed out it's not the view of many groups representing British citizens in the EU who have written to us and published a statement today. Not only do they accept any for unilateral guaranteed, they have strongly urged on me and other noble Lords that far from causing uncertainty, they believe it will provide them with reassurance. disputes is that the Leave campaign claimed that the rights of EU and British citizens resident in other countries would not be affected.

He's a rebel, so too is Patrick, a former Tory MP. The Archbishop of York got into a row with Labour and Lib Dem peers as well. He's against the amendment. We believe it will be passed because the labour and the Dems have the numbers. We think they reckon they have about 250 in Tories about 230 do not forget the Cross bench. As for when, depends on how many more get up to speak.

I regard the higher ground, the moral high ground as the grant are triggered and the Prime Minister, as she has said, makes this are very first requirement. I believe that nobody in the European Union has so far given any reason for not agreeing with it, for all European nationals who are in other countries of residence...

What I say is that the right thing to do as has been said is that Article 50 be triggered and that each at Lee, as the Prime Minister has said she asked the to be settled and be settled in a way that would cover the whole of the European Union and I believe the only excuse that has been offered so far in Europe for not agreeing to this has been that the score 50, the way out of the European Union, negotiations have been triggered.

With the Creators Update you will have several new options for scheduling the timing of when updates install. For example, you can specify exactly when you want an update to occur (including the ability to reschedule an update if your original choice ends up being less convenient than expected), or “hit the snooze button.” Thesnoozecapability allows you to pause the update process completely for three days when you need uninterrupted time on your device. In addition, we are widening the “Active Hourstime so Windows doesnt install an update at times when you want your device to be ready to use. Here are two screen shots of the choices you will have when the Creators Update becomes available. As always, we believe in the value of keeping devices “up to date,” and recommend that you choose the installation defaults that Windows 10 provides so you will always have the latest features, apps, and security updates.

So what should we as progressivesAmerican progressives, Israeli progressives and progressives globally demand of our governments in bringing this future about? Let’s take a moment to talk about values. It’s often said that the US-Israel relationship is based on “shared values.” I think this is correct, but then we also have to ask: What do we mean by this? What values are we talking about? As progressives, here are the values we share: We believe in democracy. We believe in equality. We believe in pluralism. We are strongly opposed to xenophobia. We respect and we will protect the rights of minorities. These are values that are shared by progressives in this country and across the globe. These values are based upon the very simple notion that we share a common humanity. Whether we are Israelis or Palestinians or Americans, whether we are Jews, Christians, Muslims, or of another religion, we all want our children to grow up healthy, to have a good education, have decent jobs, drink clean water and breathe clean air, and to live in peace.

Oftentimes we're led to believe the bigger the home, the better. Grand staircases, chef-worthy kitchens and walk-in closets are what we're all supposed to long for, right? I'll admit I've occasionally fallen victim to this keeping up with the Joneses virtue of more , but I have to say it's absolutely exhausting. So much so, I've begun to prioritize something totally different. Lately, I long for a house I can craft into my very own and a space that feels safe no matter the size. Like me, Shavonda Gardner is one homeowner who isn't afraid to trade in a sizable home for one she can inject with some soul. Two years ago she convinced her partner Naomi to cut their square footage in half in order for them to snag a new house with more character, a cozy vibe and projects she could sink her teeth into. Luckily, right before closing on a house they admittedly weren't crazy about, a 40s-era bungalow in Sacramento, CA that needed the perfect amount of love popped onto the market.

Chasing Amy is Kevin Smith at his near best. Laika is a little-known production company that is taking the world by storm with its animation delights. Its latest movie Kubo and the Two Strings is being heralded a classic - as should The Boxtrolls. This stop-motion animation delight centres on a community of trolls who live among the trash of the city of Cheesebridge and come to the aid of a human orphan. The Boxtrolls is a beautifully made movie that shows there's still a lot of love in stop-motion animation. If you don't believe us, try and watch the end credits of this movie without a tear in your eye. Superb stuff. Wes Andersons quirky directing is a perfect fit for Roald Dahls Fantastic Fox. Lovingly crafted using stop animation thats voiced by Anderson alumni, and George Clooney, the film works well as a kids animation, but its adults that will get the biggest kicks.

The outcome won't be known until these workers. The outcome won't be known until the negotiations these workers. The outcome won't be known until the negotiations are well near complete and that would be totally unacceptable, not only to thousands of such workers living in Britain, but also I believe to this house and the other place. That is why this amendment should be written into the Bill and why MPs must be asked to think again on this critical matter. If they don't, I believe we should have the courage of our convictions to insist that this provision is enacted.

I say that as someone who has a little bit of experience of EU negotiations. I negotiated our session to the EU. I negotiated the opt out on the euro. I can't be sure that I am right, but I do think there is a reasonable chance that I am right and I do not believe myself that the transactional approach which is the way the government wishes to go, that that transactional approach is the right way to proceed, or is likely to produce good results, or will produce them quickly.

My Lords, I rise to support Amendment nine B, which is standing on the order paper in my name as well as the other three in the less. It's about the rights of citizens in this member state, not those in other member states. I support this amendment without hesitation because I believe we do have a commitment to honour here. To recognise that just the rights of the citizens, although that is important enough, but also the contribution they have made, are still making and will I hope continue to make to our economy and our society.

President Donald Trump will continue to defend his original travel ban even after a revised executive order limiting travel to the United States is finalized in the coming days, Vice President Mike Pence said Wednesday. “The president is just determined to not only defend the first executive order in the courts, which we continue to believe is fully within his purview and his presidential authority, but also to take that authority that is undisputed in the law with a new executive order,” Pence said on the CBS television program This Morning. Federal courts blocked the administration's January 27 travel ban, which temporarily prevented people from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen from entering the country. The U.S. refugee program was also halted. More than two dozen lawsuits were filed in U.S. courts against the ban; but, it was the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals that suspended the ban after ruling in a case brought by the northwestern state of Washington.

Burnett continued to push her guest. "Right," she said. "But, I'm talking about collusion or, It would be great if you could find things on Hillary Clinton,' those sorts of conversations. That would be treason, right?" Mukasey was surprised. "What?" he said. "No?" Burnett asked. "No," he said. Burnett asked if that meant Mukasey was fine with it, and he explained that law is different than what people are "fine with." "It's not a question of being fine with it,'" he said. "I'm not fine with it, but there's a difference between treason and what I'm fine with or not. And saying, You ought to get stuff on Hillary Clinton,' believe it or not, is not a crime, even if you're saying it to the Russians.
