There are an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in the US, but the White House says the new guidelines will not lead to mass deportations. Our correspondent, Siobhan Robbins, joins us now from Washington. So what are the details so far? Cracking down on illegal immigration is something of a passion for Donald Trump and these guidelines are essentially more detailed than the guidelines that he issued in January.

"You can pass on my respects to the grand mufti, but I will not cover myself up," Le Pen said. A spokesman for Lebanon's Grand Mufti said that Le Pen was informed about the requirement prior to the meeting. "I urged her to put it on, she refused and said she would not put it on and walked out without attending the previously agreed upon meeting with the Mufti," the spokesman said. "The Edict House regrets such inappropriate behavior at such meetings." Le Pen is in the midst of a presidential campaign, and recent polls show her gaining on her opponents. The first round of French elections is on April 23. The post French Pres. Candidate Walks Away From Meeting After She's Urged' to Wear Headscarf by Muslim Leader appeared first on Washington Free Beacon .

When John Nagl ran into his old friend Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster at a conference recently, he needled the three-star general about his ill-fitting civilian suit. The two men have a long history. Both West Pointers, they served as armor officers in the 1991 Persian Gulf War, and went on to write well-received books about the nature of war. After 9/11 they both fought in Iraq, and became early proponents of the population-centric counterinsurgency tactics that finally turned the tide in that conflict, earning the sobriquet from friend and foe alike of “COINistas.” So it was with good-natured ribbing that NaglcomplimentedMcMaster—a bull of a man who is built like the tanks he once commanded—about the cut of his suit. Well, McMaster replied, I paid a tailor in Afghanistan $80 to make it. “H.R., you were robbed ,” Nagl told him with a smile. Whether or not he retires from the military, McMaster figures to get a lot of wear out of that ill-fitting civilian suit in the months ahead.

During the attack on Friday, Russian strategic bombers destroyed several terrorist camps, training centers and a command post of one of the major terrorists' units near ISIS de facto capital of Raqqa. The US appears to be pursuing a policy of preventing Turkey, a NATO member state, from getting closer to Russia and Washington has achieved some success in this regard. Gullen Factor Even though after Trump spoke with Erdogan by phone last week, the White House did not disclose of the two mentioned Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen currently based in the US, but he appears to have been indirectly mentioned when the two presidents discussed fighting terrorism'. Erdogan considers Gulen a terrorist and the man behind plotting a failed coup last July whose followers were alleged to have been behind the assassination of a Russian envoy in Turkey late last year.

Picture, if you will, a house. What comes to mind? Four walls, square windows, a rectangular door? Changes are there's a lot of right angles. But one look at a home built by LA-based Binishells is all it takes to realize that this construction company is doing things differently and thinking outside the box. Binishells president and CEO Nicolò Bini is continuing the work of his father, who developed the technology for these domed buildings back in the 1960s. It's something Bini refers to as building 2.0 a cleaner, safer, less wasteful and more cost-efficient way of doing construction. It doesn't hurt that it looks really cool, too. Read more...

President Donald Trump's new national security adviser, Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster, needs Senate confirmation to remain a three-star general in his new post . His job, like virtually all those in the West Wing of the White House, doesn't need Senate approval. But his decision to remain on active duty as a three-star Army general will require Senate approval. Under the military’s arcane system for ranking three- and four-star generals and admirals, the ranks are considered temporary and tied to the position, so when officers move jobs they have to be reconfirmed by the Senate at that rank. Federal law allows for the president to appoint generals and admirals to “positions of importance,” but also requires Senate confirmation within 60 days. “Gen. McMaster does not require Senate confirmation to serve as national security adviser,” said a Senate Armed Services aide.

The White House is sending mixed signals as to whether or not it will rescind President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban even as officials seek to craft a new order that will be less vulnerable to legal challenge. The Justice Department told the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals last week that Trump will rescind...and replace the original order, which remains largely on hold after an appeals court panel upheld a lower court’s broad injunction. But White House press secretary Sean Spicer said at the conclusion of his daily briefing Tuesday that Trump will not rescind the original order. Instead, the first order is being updated, Spicer insisted. The contradictory statements sowed further confusion about the fate of Trump's original order, which bars immigrants from seven Muslim-majority countries and halts the entry of refugees. The new order is going to be very much tailored to what I consider to be a very bad decision, Trump said last week.
