Homeland Security warned President Trump’s administration as recently as May about the potential for violence by white supremacists and other ultra-conservative groups.

The intelligence bulletin, entitled “White Supremacist Extremism Poses Persistent Threat of Lethal Violence, warned of “lethal violence over the next year,” according to Foreign Policy, which obtained a copy. 

“We assess lone actors and small cells within the white supremacist extremist movement likely will continue to pose a threat of lethal violence over the next year,” the bulletin reads.

The bulletin also indicates that white supremacists are responsible for the marjory of domestic terrorism.

They  “were responsible for 49 homicides in 26 attacks from 2000 to 2016…more than any other domestic extremist movement,” the document states.

The Justice Department has issued a warrant for records from a website used to organized protests against President Trump’s inauguration, but the web-hosting and domain registration company is putting up a fight.

DreamHost said the Justice Department filed a motion to force the company to release 1.3 million visitors’ IP addresses from disruptjj20.org, a website organized by a group of activists “building the framework needed for mass protests to shut down the inauguration of Donald Trump.”

In a blogpost by DreamHost, the web hosting provider said the Justice Department’s request is unconstitutional and is seeking additional contact information, content and photos of thousands of visitors to the website. 

“Chris Ghazarian, our General Counsel, has taken issue with this particular search warrant for being a highly untargeted demand that chills free association and the right of free speech afforded by the Constitution,” the blogpost reads.

It adds: “That information could be used to identify any individuals who used this site to exercise and express political speech protected under the Constitution’s First Amendment. That should be enough to set alarm bells off in anyone’s mind.”

The Justice Department declined to respond to several news organizations’ requests for information.

A man who crashed an SUV while trying to elude Border Patrol agents, injuring himself and six other undocumented immigrants, was sentenced to four years in prison Monday.

Miguel Angel Tejada-Loaiza, 21, was transporting six unauthorized immigrants near the Otay Mesa Port of Entry after crossing the Mexico border to San Diego, according to the JusticeDepartment.

U.S. District Judge Larry Burns said Tejada-Loaiza was more reckless than most human smuggling crimes.

“This case is at the very aggravated end of the spectrum,” the judge said.

The crash occurred when Tejada-Loaiza made a sharp turn and slammed into a guard rail.
