On Thursday, President Barack Obama’s administration issued new guidance to schools, emphasizing that they cannot discourage illegal immigrant students from enrolling by requiring proof of legal status.

But that never made sense, because the CIA memo never mentioned anything about a video.

So where did she get that completely erroneous information?

Congress is set to vote today on renewing the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (the renewal is tucked into the “Electrify Africa Act”). OPIC uses taxpayer backing to finance and insure American companies when they set up operations overseas.
