Trump Unveils Middle East Plan that Offers Palestine Path to Statehood, Increased Territory

Trump Unveils Middle East Plan that Offers Palestine Path to Statehood, Increased TerritoryPresident Trump unveiled his administration's plan for Israeli-Palestinian peace at a press conference on Tuesday that currently lacks Palestinian buy-in but nevertheless provides a path to Palestinian statehood and substantial territorial gains.Trump said that Israel would adopt the plan as a basis for negotiations with the Palestinians."All prior administrations from the [administration of] Lyndon Johnson have failed," Trump told assembled officials and reporters, with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at his side. "But I was not elected to do small things, or shy away from large problems."Netanyahu thanked Trump and adviser Jared Kushner for their development of the plan.“The Jewish state owes [Jared Kushner], and it owes President Trump, an eternal debt of gratitude,” Netanyahu said.The plan itself calls for more than doubling the area of the West Bank currently under Palestinian control, as well as a Palestinian capital in East Jerusalem. However, the President also insisted that Israel would retain "undivided" control over its capital of Jerusalem, and that no Israelis or Palestinians would be uprooted from their homes to make the deal.The Palestinians would be required to meet certain conditions for the plan's implementation. These include the disarmament of terror groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the discontinuation of Palestinian Authority programs that pay salaries to terrorists or their families, and the recognition of Israel as a Jewish state.In return, the Palestinians would receive a state covering most of the West Bank and an investment of $ 50 billion in the state's economy, funded by other nations.The plan does not grant Palestinians the right of return, with the possible exception of a small number of refugees from Israel's 1948 War of Independence. Israel would be required to implement a building freeze for a period of four years, covering territory in the West Bank to be included in a future Palestinian state.

The remarks constitute the Pentagon’s first public confirmation of Trump’s recent pronouncements that U.S. military operations have picked up in recent weeks.

DHS: Rate of Migrant Men Arriving at Border with Children Increased 110 Percent in Two Years

DHS: Rate of Migrant Men Arriving at Border with Children Increased 110 Percent in Two YearsAliens know that if they bring ANY minor with them they will be apprehended by Border Patrol and released into the interior of the United States. This is a direct result of the Clinton-era Flores Settlement decree that has created a massive loophole which allows alien family units to illegally cross the border and enter the United States after a short detention. This well-known loophole acts a magnet for family units and entices smugglers to use children as a way to gain access to the United States by posing a family unit.
