DNA INFO
— ‘Open Up Your Homes’ To DREAMers, Says Rahm, Who Will Host In His House – Alex Nitkin  (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, Democrats treasonously encourage people to come to America illegally, to stay in America illegally, and to bring others to America illegally.)
https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20170129/ohare/rahm-emanuel-ohare-protest-trump-executive-order-travel-restrictions
(FROM THE ARTICLE: O’HARE — Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s name evoked boos and hisses from the hundreds of demonstrators outside at O’Hare Airport when a speaker mentioned his name. Few realized he had joined them. The mayor ducked into the airport’s international terminal Sunday, shook hands with volunteer attorneys and called on residents across the city to host refugees and immigrants in their homes as an act of defiance to President Donald Trump’s restrictive executive order. Trump’s order, signed on Friday, suspends all U.S. refugee resettlement for 120 days, bars Syrian refugees indefinitely, and blocks travel into the U.S. for 90 days for citizens of Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. It will also stop green card holders from those seven countries from entering the U.S. again if they travel abroad. On Saturday, after more than a thousand protesters marched inside and outside the terminal, Emanuel released a statement saying the travel restrictions had “tarnished America’s standing as a beacon of hope for the free world.” The next evening, he bypassed the crowds and made for the dozens of volunteer lawyers who had set up a makeshift office at a McDonald’s inside the terminal. He huddled and shook hands with organizers, asking which law firms they represented. Some volunteers held up signs in Arabic and Farsi offering counsel to travelers who had been detained, while others huddled around laptops drafting writs of habeas corpus on their behalf. “I want to thank all the lawyers here who are assuring people that when they come, what they’re met with is support, security and safety,” Emanuel said. “That’s who we are, and that is what we’re doing.” Meanwhile, officials from the city’s aviation department, which runs operations at the airport, dropped off a shipment of coffee and pastries for the lawyers. While Emanuel was at the airport, his office released a statement saying he would host immigrants in his home who had been granted legal status under the DREAM Act. Trump has so far laid off the legislation, which outlines a path to citizenship for immigrants who enter the country illegally as young children. “At a moment of unease and vulnerability for so many, let’s come together as a city and put action behind our words and the values we hold dear as a welcoming city,” the statement read. Emanuel and the City Council last week affirmed Chicago’s status as a “sanctuary city,” which bars local law enforcement from helping federal officials identify or deport undocumented immigrants. Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding from the city over its status. Here is Emanuel’s statement: “One hundred years ago, the people of Chicago opened their hearts and their homes to my grandfather when he immigrated to this great city, fleeing the pogroms of Eastern Europe in search of freedom and opportunity. In that spirit, in the coming days my family and I will host DREAMers attending Chicago Public Schools and Chicago City Colleges for a meal, a conversation, and a recognition and celebration of all that unites us, rather than what divides us. I am asking every interested resident of the City of Chicago to join us by hosting a similar meal in your own homes and at restaurants in your own neighborhoods, or by sharing welcoming words through a phone call or email. At a moment of unease and vulnerability for so many, let’s come together as a city and put action behind our words and the values we hold dear as a welcoming city. Lets show the world that the City of Big Shoulders is also a city of big hearts.”)

— Google, in Post-Obama Era, Aggressively Woos Republicans – CECILIA KANGJA  (DIERSEN: What does Google think of you?  What does Google think of Dave Diersen and his GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails?)
https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/27/technology/google-in-post-obama-era-aggressively-woos-republicans.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Few companies have been as intimately tied to the Democratic Party in recent years as Google. So now that Donald J. Trump is president, the giant company, in Silicon Valley parlance, is having to pivot. The shift was evident a day after Congress began its new session this month. That evening, about 70 lawmakers, a majority of them Republicans, were feted at the stately Smithsonian Arts and Industries Building, where they clinked champagne and bourbon glasses and posed for selfies with the 600 guests assembled in their honor. The event’s main host was not from the Republican establishment. Instead, the party was primarily financed and anchored by Google. “We’ve partnered with Google on events before, but nothing like this party,” said Alex Skatell, founder of The Independent Journal Review, a news start-up with a right-leaning millennial audience, which also helped host the event. “I’ve never heard of an event as big.”)

— Reince Priebus says there is a ‘buffet of options’ on paying for wall which could include taxing drug cartels or fining illegal immigrants – AP  (DIERSEN: What about fining those individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that encourage people to come to America illegally, to stay in America illegally, and/or to bring others to America illegally?  There are far too many of the aforesaid in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois.)

— From what I see, news outlets on the following draft list are overwhelmingly anti-Trump; do you agree?  Which news outlets would you add to the list and/or delete from list?  Trump supporters in Illinois should monitor the news outlets on the list for opposition research. The best way to do that is to read GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. – Dave Diersen
