A Paramedic With DACA Status Rescues Harvey Victims As Trump Decides His Fate

This Paramedic Who Rescued Harvey Victims May Be Deported If Trump Ends DACA
“It was like getting an extra kick to the face when you’re already down.”

Artemio Muniz, chair of the Texas Federation of Hispanic Republicans, said DACA recipients in the areas affected by the hurricane were hit with a double whammy over the last few days.

"The timing is just so bad,” Muniz told BuzzFeed News. “Some of them lost their homes and are trying to recover from the hurricane."

Nearly 790,000 young undocumented immigrants received work permits and protection from deportation under DACA, according to the latest figures from US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

The program, created by Obama in 2012, faces an uncertain future in the coming days, with Trump expected to announce a decision about its fate on Tuesday.

Do Your Dance.

In respect to those loved ones serving in the military who Donald disrespected, and to the civilians, Senators, and journalists who worked and fought to prevent the replacement of the ACA with a tax cut for the urpingly wealthy, please be proud to do your dance.

Just seen on CNN after Repub ACA repeal fail, whining that Democrats "go for the throat".

As if that were a bad thing for Democrats to be doing to greedy Republican wolves.

A dagger in Trump's plans - BBC North America Correspondent Anthony Zurcher

The arc of history is long, but it bends towards revenge.

Just over two years after candidate Donald Trump mocked John McCain's Vietnam War record, noting that he prefers heroes "who weren't captured", the Arizona senator stuck a dagger in President Trump's healthcare reform plans.

There were gasps when Mr McCain, after being furiously lobbied by Vice-President Mike Pence, joined two other Republican senators in voting against the so-called "skinny" repeal plan, considered the bare minimum Senate Republicans could agree on.

Instead of a big step toward becoming law - either in its skinny form or after further negotiations with the House of Representatives - the future of Obamacare repeal has been thrown into doubt.

US Senate healthcare repeal bill fails
US Senate attempt to repeal Obama healthcare act fails after late-night drama and disarray
The latest attempt to repeal the Obama-era healthcare act has failed after a dramatic night in the US Senate.

At least three Republicans - John McCain, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski - voted against the bill, which needed a simple majority to pass.

It was voted down by 51 votes to 49.

Satire from Nov 15 2016: President-Elect Trump Arrested, Charged With Espionage In Stunning Reversal

By Marty Rudoy

Washington DC: Goodyear Satire Co.—

President-Elect Donald Trump was arrested on espionage charges today. The move comes just a week after he was elected President of the United States.

“The Russians compromised Trump by funneling Hillary’s emails through Wikileaks,” said FBI Director James Comey. “After the election, Vladimir Putin offered Trump an illegal license to build hotels along the Crimea River. Trump jumped at the chance.”

“The lure of a continent full of hotel maids whose private parts have never been groped excited Trump,” explained CIA director John O. Brennan. “Most embarrassing of all,” said Brennan, “Trump fell for the Crimea River joke.”

Trump, Chief of Strategy Steve Bannon and three white-hooded bodyguards were arrested after meeting what they thought were Putin agents. Trump personally handed the “spies” a fistful of documents and a gold pinkie friendship ring destined for Putin. The ring was engraved “Спасибо брат” - Russian for “Thanks Bro.”

Two Killed as Learjet Crashes Into New Jersey Buildings

Source: NBC NEWS

Two crew members were killed and several buildings were set ablaze when a Learjet carrying no passengers crashed Monday while trying to land at a New Jersey airport, authorities said.

The Federal Aviation Administration told NBC News that the plane, which was flying from Philadelphia International Airport, went down about a quarter-mile short of Teterboro Airport in Carlstadt, about 15 miles northeast of Newark, at 3:30 p.m. ET. Carlstadt police told NBC New York that neither crew member survived.

The airport, a major hub for general aviation in the New York region, was closed as thick smoke poured from the scene.
