A California camp counselor — now charged with child molestation and distribution of child pornography— was able to maintain his Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) status and job prior to his arrest despite being considered a “potentially egregious public safety,” the Obama administration has revealed to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-IA). In response to questions from Grassley earlier this year, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services confirm that the camp counselor charged with child molestation, Edgar Covarrubias-Padilla, received DACA status on May 22, 2013. Immigration and Customs Enforcement was aware that he was under investigation for child molestation November 17, 2014, according to Grassley’s office. USCIS, however, was not aware of the investigation until March 31, 2015, despite the fact that USCIS said ICE “typically apprise[s] USCIS when a recipient of DACA or an immigration benefit is an investigative target.” Covarrubias-Padilla’s DACA status was terminated six days after

A group of Chinese teachers has branded British kids ill disciplined and emotionally immature after being tasked with teaching at UK comprehensive schools. Traditional “chalk and talk” teaching methods favoured by the Chinese have been credited with sending their country rocketing up the international league tables in science, maths and literacy. Britain, which has been moving away from these methods in favour of more “collaborative” learning has meanwhile slipped down, being ranked 20th by the OECD in January this year. Now, five teachers have travelled from across China to the UK to teach 13 and 14 year olds at Bohunt School in Liphook, Hampshire for four weeks, as part of a television documentary due to be aired on BBC Two. The teachers, who typically stand in front of their charges for 12 hours a day in China, are portrayed in the trailer shouting “listen to me”, “just use your brain”

The Obama administration says it has recovered or terminated the 2,600 three-year amnesty documents issued in violation of a district court injunction. According to a Justice Department filing with the court, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has replaced the erroneously issued three-year Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) with acceptable two-year documents in nearly all the cases except for 22. For those 22 illegal immigrants who did not comply with the order to return their three year for two year permits, their deferred status and work permits have been terminated, the filing notes. The government requested that since it has comes in compliance with the court’s order, an August 19 hearing at which top administration immigration officials — including DHS Sec. Jeh Johnson — are expected to attend, should be canceled. “Because the Government has ‘remedie[d] [the] situation’ that led to the Court’s July 7 Order, the Government respectfully submits that, in accordance

Because of the small sample size, there were a lot of questions surrounding Monday’s Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll that showed Donald Trump leading the Republican primary field and, interestingly enough, appearing to siphon votes away from establishment candidates like Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio. A Monmouth University poll also released Monday, and with a somewhat larger sample size and smaller margin of error, shows Trump in first place, beating both Scott Walker and Jeb Bush combined. The poll puts Trump in first place with 26% support. Second place Jeb Bush and third place Scott Walker sit at 12% and 11%, respectively. That is what you call a blow out. The remainder of the “top ten” includes Ted Cruz (6%), Mike Huckabee (6%), Ben Carson (5%), Chris Christie (4%), Rand Paul (4%), Marco Rubio (4%), and John Kasich (3%). Carly Fiorina and Rick Perry each earn 2% and Bobby Jindal,
