Ottawa may have no choice but to repatriate, prosecute captured Canadian ISIL members: experts

The oldest are probably just toddlers, innocents born into one of the most reviled terrorist movements in the world.

And very soon, they could be the responsibility of the federal government.

The children of Canadian members of the so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant form part of a potentially explosive dilemma confronting federal officials. As ISIL teeters on the brink of military defeat, what should the government do when and if Canadian members of ISIL are captured?


Malmö is the future of Sweden

Malmö reached some sort of new record on Friday. Then there were three shootings in public environments over the course of 20 hours.

At one of the shootings, someone unconsciously shot several shots against a multi-family house. The bullets entered between floors one and eight. At another shot, a man with several shots is shot inside a hairdresser’s salon. The third shooting also occurred in a residential area, but according to the police it may have been a mistake.

Democrat’s amendment to spending bill makes illegals eligible for federal jobs

It should go without saying that people who are in the U.S. illegally should not be eligible for jobs in the federal government. But apparently it needs to be said — at least to liberals in Congress.

An amendment added by Rep. Pete Aguilar (D-Calif.) to the Appropriations Committee’s Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Services Bill qualifies “dreamers” for federal employment. Specifically, the amendment adds language allowing individuals authorized to be employed under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program [Obama’s Dreamer executive order]. The amendment was adopted on a voice vote.
