    For most of Germany’s postwar history, the conservative CDU/CSU and the Social Democrats (SPD) were the undisputed twin poles of German politics. Known as Volksparteien, literally “popular parties,” these big-tent associations of interests have led every government since 1949. They were the German equivalents of the Republicans and Democrats in the United States or Tories and Labour in the United Kingdom. But their popularity is eroding alarmingly. In the words of venerable German political scientist Herfried Münkler, the Volksparteien look increasingly like “last year’s models.” The most recent Deutschlandtrend survey, published on September 20, put support for the CDU/CSU at...

    Madison officials believe six people were taken into custody Friday by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in a targeted effort in the city. The arrests came as a surprise to city and police officials and few details are known about the situation. Mayor Paul Soglin reaffirmed at a Friday news conference that ICE’s actions are “contrary to city policy.” “We want to find out everyone who was taken by ICE, so we can make contact with them and do our best job to ensure that their rights are protected,” Soglin said. “That’s the first and highest priority.” Ald.

    Beto O’Rourke blames Black Americans not working for illegal aliens working [video] September 20th, 2018 Bethany Blankley Beto told a black Texan that he and other Americans created the need for illegal aliens working because they are not working a cotton gin. Yes, he said this– in public– on video. During a town hall event on Wednesday night, Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) — running against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for the Senate seat — told a black American who questioned his support for illegal aliens. O’Rourke then compared the aliens from Central America and Mexico to the modern version of...

    With the effort to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border seemingly stalled in Washington, the National Sheriffs' Association is looking to help break the logjam by raising funds for the project. The group has launched a crowdfunding website that it announced during a White House meeting attended by President Trump and 43 sheriffs from 35 states, the Charlotte Observer reported. We wanted to clear up some confusion - we received a couple emails regarding a possible GoFundMe account for the border wall associated with the National Sheriffs' Association. The ONLY NSA-affiliated fund for border security is at
  • Illegal immigration creating monster trash crisis

    While anti-border wall activists see a coming eco-apocalypse, some border-wall proponents already see one caused by unchecked illegal immigration. The problems linked to illegal immigration have had much attention lately: the criminals and potential terrorists entering without permission, the young children needing care and workers taking jobs that Americans, in fact, would do. Then there’s the burden on taxpayers for all the social services as well as the possibility that lax state laws let them vote. Now a new one has begun getting attention: the millions of pounds of garbage left by those traveling through southwest America’s deserts illegally. “Perhaps...

    SAN FRANCISCO/NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced new limits on the ability of immigration judges to terminate deportation cases on Wednesday, the latest in a series of decisions to facilitate the removal of immigrants in the country illegally Unlike the federal judiciary system, U.S. immigration courts fall under the Department of Justice and the attorney general can rewrite opinions issued by the Board of Immigration Appeals. Sessions, a Republican former U.S. senator appointed by President Donald Trump, has been unusually active in this practice compared to his predecessors.

    "Nearly 3 in 10 family units are cutting off their ankle bracelets at the beginning of the process when they've been released from our custody within days or weeks so they're not even going to get to that point where they could get the final removal order," Matthew Albence, executive associate director for ICE, testified before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Those waiting to hear if their asylum cases are approved or denied were more likely to keep their monitors in tact and show up for court, but once their cases were denied, they were not likely...

    BRENTWOOD, Long Island — The mother of a teen killed by alleged MS-13 gang members in Brentwood was fatally struck by a vehicle at the site where a memorial service was about to be held for her daughter on Friday, officials confirmed. Evelyn Rodriguez, the mother of Kayla Cuevas, was killed at the same spot on Stahley Street where her daughter was found dead in September 2016. Congressman Peter King says it happened about an hour before a planned memorial service at that location for her daughter. Suffolk County police say they are investigating.

    STOCKHOLM (AFP) - The Tibetan spiritual leader, the Dalai Lama, said Wednesday that "Europe belongs to the Europeans" and that refugees should return to their native countries to rebuild them. Speaking at a conference in Sweden's third-largest city of Malmo, home to a large immigrant population, the Dalai Lama -- who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989 -- said Europe was "morally responsible" for helping "a refugee really facing danger against their life". "Receive them, help them, educate them... but ultimately they should develop their own country," said the 83-year-old Tibetan who fled the capital Lhasa in fear of...

    The sheriff of Pima County, Arizona said Wednesday on "Fox & Friends" that the rejection by county officials of a $1.4 million federal grant to strengthen border security is puzzling. The board reportedly voted to reject funding from Operation Stonegarden, a program that would bolster cooperation on border security between the federal and local government. Sheriff Mark Napier said that the same board of supervisors accepted the same grant the previous 12 years, and that the vote against it is jeopardizing public safety.

Ted Cruz (R-Texas) attacked Twitter on Thursday after the company mistakenly barred some tweets from the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), a think tank that favors restrictions on immigration. “Does Twitter now ban the plain text of federal law?” Cruz asked on Twitter, in reference to CIS’s claim that several of its tweets were not allowed to be promoted on the platform for using the term “illegal alien.” The think tank, which has been labeled as a hate group by the Southern Poverty and Law Center, said that after several of its tweets were denied paid promotion status, it...
