Report: Saudi National Ruled Out as Suspect in Boston Marathon on Bombing to be Deported on National Security Grounds Next Week, The Blaze - Appearing on “Hannity” Wednesday night, the Investigative Project on Terrorism’s Steve Emerson reported that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national who was briefly named a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombings, is being deported on Tuesday. He based his information on a number of his confidential sources. “I just learned from my own sources that he is now going to be deported on national security grounds next Tuesday,” Emerson said. Host Sean Hannity referenced a report by Reuters that revealed President Barack Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal at the White House Wednesday. They reportedly discussed the conflict in Syria. “The meeting was not on Obama’s public schedule,” the report adds.Emerson’s claims have not been verified.


(2) U. Senate Shoots Down Background Check Amendment, Pro-Gun Amendments Scuttled, Feinstein's Amendment Goes Down in Flames - The Blaze -After the Manchin-Toomey proposal failed to clear the U.S. Senate, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, co-chair of Mayors Against Illegal Guns, released the following statement: Today’s vote is a damning indictment of the stranglehold that special interests have on Washington. More than 40 U.S. senators would rather turn their backs on the 90 percent of Americans who support comprehensive background checks than buck the increasingly extremist wing of the gun lobby. Democrats – who are so quick to blame Republicans for our broken gun laws – could not stand united. And Republicans – who are so quick to blame Democrats for not being tough enough on crime – handed criminals a huge victory, by preserving their ability to buy guns illegally at gun shows and online and keeping the illegal trafficking market.

(3) Gallup: Only 4% of Americans Think Gun Control is an Important Problem - CNS News -  Only 4 percent of Americans think guns and gun control are an important problem facing the country, according to Gallup, and far more Americans are concerned about the economy, unemployment and the federal debt. In its poll from Apr. 4-7, Gallup surveyed 1,005 adults by telephone and asked, “What do you think is the most important problem facing the country today?” Read more.........

(4) Immigration Bill Would Take Nearly 3 Days to Read - Nonstop - CNS News -  The 844 page Senate immigration bill (S. 744) creating a "pathway to citizenship" for illegal aliens was introduced overnight Wednesday morning prior to its one and only scheduled hearing Friday morning. But, given the average person's reading speed, congressmen would need nearly three full days to read it - if they never stopped to eat, sleep, or do anything else. Given that it takes the average reader a minimum of five minutes to read a page of technical information, a congressman would need 4,220 minutes to read the bill (5 x 844 = 4,220). Divide that by 60 minutes and you get 70.3 hours. Divide 70.3 hours by 24, and it would take 2.93 days for a congressman to read the entire immigration bill - if he started and didn't stop until he finished. So, will anyone actually read the entire immigration bill prior to the hearing - or even before voting on it? Read more.............


(5) Rep. LaMar Smith: Immigration Bill 'Worse Than We Thought, Legalizes Relatives and Previously Deported - CNS News - Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) said today that the Senate immigration bill is even worse than feared, since it legalizes illegals' relatives and even those previously deported: "It's hard to believe, but the Senate immigration bill is worse than we thought. Despite assurances, the border is not secured before almost everyone in the country illegally is given amnesty. The bill guarantees there will be a rush across the border to take advantage of massive amnesty." Rep. Smith says the Senate immigration bill shreds current immigration laws: "And the Senate proposal offers amnesty to far more illegal immigrants than we thought. In addition to most of the 11 million illegal immigrants already in the country, the bill offers to legalize the relatives of illegal immigrants outside the U.S. and even others who have already been deported back home. So current immigration laws are shredded.  Read more.......
