Jeff Sessions ends a Common Tactic used by Immigration Judges

“Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a directive on Thursday that places limits on a tool commonly used by immigration judges and could put hundreds of thousands of deportation cases that are essentially closed back on federal court dockets.

The move, issued in an interim decision, is unlikely to reopen all the cases. But Mr. Sessions said that immigration courts could not put such cases on indefinite hold by using a practice known as administrative closure, which temporarily removes a case from a judge’s calendar and delays a proceeding that could remove an immigrant from the country.

The Trump Administration is going to make it easier to sell guns abroad

The Trump Administration is going to make it easier to sell guns abroad

“The State Department has submitted a request to shift oversight on small-arms exports, such as semiautomatic rifles, from State to Commerce, kicking off a 45-day review period of the new policy, which has been long sought by the gun industry.

The move impacts any firearms that are “widely available” in U.S. stores for commercial sale. However, State would maintain oversight on any weapons sold primarily for military use.

It’s a move that arms manufacturers have sought for years, with hopes of selling more weapons abroad – one that aligns with the Trump administration’s stance that economic security and national security are irrevocably linked.”
