Breaking news on the domestic policy front, but it affects our foreign policy as well, as we analyze the President’s new immigration policy which will protect the United States and ensure commonsense immigration laws promoting immigrants in this country are those we actually need and who deserve to be here.

On today’s show, we discussed President Trump’s anticipated announcement later today for a new immigration policy, working in tandem with Sen. Lindsey Graham’s program to overhaul America’s broken asylum process.

Once again, former Obama Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson made comments supporting the President’s National Emergency declaration, stating that there is “very definitely a crisis” at our southern border with Mexico. Yesterday, Johnson told Fox News that border patrol had 100,000 apprehensions in both March AND April. Johnson put those numbers into disturbing perspective:

“That is the equivalent of the population of the city of Orlando, Florida showing up on our southern border in the course of two months.”

Even as we were on the air, we were literally still trying gather more information on the President’s new plan. President Trump is scheduled to address the nation from the White House Rose Garden and give more information later today, but we discussed what we knew so far.

One thing we know is that this policy should easily garner bipartisan support, since it is not about building the wall. What it is about is cutting roughly 1/3rd of the chain migration happening right now.

It would be a merit based point system, modeled on the systems that Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan use. This should be a victory even for Democrats, who we pointed out are so often quick to point to Canada as a model of government they want to follow.

It would also eliminate the unfair lottery system to get visas, which currently penalizes some migrants who have taken the proper steps and followed procedure and still had their visa applications passed over.

We await the President’s address and will continue to keep you updated on his new policy.

We also updated you on the current investigation into possible spying and abuses within the FBI. As we said multiple times, the den of vipers and the swamp in Washington feel the net is closing in, and now they are turning on each other.

Yesterday, former FBI General Counsel appeared on a podcast – interestingly the same show where we told you Rep. Rashida Tlaib claimed she gets a “comforting feeling” about the holocaust – and admitted they knew the infamous Steele dossier was not credible. Baker also expressed concern about former FBI Director James Comey’s behavior regarding the dossier.

The Steele dossier, written by a former British spy, contained salacious, unsubstantiated accusations about then Presidential-candidate Donald Trump. Baker reportedly stated the FBI took the Steele Dossier “seriously” but they “didn’t necessarily take it literally.”

If you can’t take something literally, that means you know it’s not true. That sounds to us like Baker is saying is the FBI knew the dossier was bogus, but they stood before a federal judge and presented it as evidence to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on a U.S. citizen anyway.

You can listen to the entire episode here.
