I’ve followed the career of Ken Cuccinelli, 50, a genuine conservative who was the attorney general of the state of Virginia (2010-2014) and before that, a Virginia state senator (2002-2010). In 2013, he lost the Virginia gubernatorial election to Clinton-crony Demonrat Terry McAuliffe, by just 2.5% (56,435 votes).
In 2016, in an effort to get Hillary Clinton elected president, Gov. McAuliffe restored voting and other civil rights to thousands of convicted felons, which enabled pedophile and white supremacist Nathan Larson to run for Congress as an Independent. Larson campaigned on a platform that advocated the legalization of child porn and incest.
But I had not known that a month ago, President Trump appointed Cuccinelli as acting Director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that administers the United States’ naturalization and immigration system. USCIS is a successor to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), which was dissolved in 2002 and replaced by three components within the DHS: USCIS, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and Customs and Border Protection (CBP).
Tim Pearce reports for the Washington Examiner that on July 7, 2019, Acting United States Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Ken Cuccinelli said about 1 million “illegal immigrants” have already received court orders to leave the country, and that Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers, who are already hundreds of thousands of deportations behind schedule, will begin deporting them later this week.
Cuccinelli appeared on CBS Face the Nation to defend the ICE deportations, which the outlaw-enabling and post-birth abortion Left criticize as inhumane raids against immigrant families.
Cuccinelli said ICE is obligated “to go and find, detain, and then deport the approximately 1 million people who have final removal orders. [These migrants] have been all the way through the due process and have final removal order. The pool of those with final removal orders is enormous. [ICE officers] have been interfered with, effectively, and held up by the politics of Washington to a certain extent. They’re looking forward to just getting back to doing their job.”
Cuccinelli said ICE will deport illegal immigrants with court orders on a rolling basis, beginning with a few thousand.
Meanwhile, Paul Bedard reports for the Washington Examiner that President Trump plans to have named 150 federal judges by the end of this year, boosting the total number of federal judges to some 250 in Trump’s first presidential term.
Since the United States has a total of 870 federal judges in the Supreme Court, district courts, courts of appeals, and the U.S. Court of International Trade, this means President Trump is on a pace to fill 30% of America’s federal judges, which will be “a historic legacy” in the conservative movement to restore America.
