    Aug 26, 2015 BROWNSVILLE, Texas — A fourth soldier from Fort Hood has pleaded guilty to using her U.S. Army identification or military gear to help transport immigrants. Yashira Marie Perez-Morales, of Killeen, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Brownsville to immigrant smuggling charges. Prosecutors say Perez-Morales hid immigrants while driving through the Border Patrol checkpoint at Sarita. Christopher David Wix of Abilene was sentenced last month to a year and a day in federal prison. Two other Fort Hood soldiers, Eric Alexander Rodriguez, of Odem, and Brandon Troy Robbins, of San Antonio, await sentencing. ...... Prosecutors say Gracia last year provided...

    Kate Steinle's Family Files Claim Against San Francisco, ICE, Bureau of Land Management for Pier 14 ShootingThe family of a young woman gunned down along Pier 14 in San Francisco filed claims against local and federal agencies on Tuesday, saying those agencies' failings led to her death. Kate Steinle, 32, was killed on July 1 while taking a stroll with her father along the San Francisco landmark when Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an undocumented immigrant with a criminal history, allegedly shot her. Lopez-Sanchez, who said he doesn't remember the shooting, allegedly used a large caliber handgun that belonged to a federal...

    The family of Kathryn Steinle — the woman whose shooting death sparked a national outcry over illegal immigrant crime — is filing a lawsuit against local and federal officials over her murder, according to reports. Steinle family is slated to file the suit Tuesday and it will name San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, according to ABC7 News. The sheriff’s department released alleged killer Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez from custody less than three months before Steinle was shot, ignoring an immigration detainer ICE had lodged against him. Sanchez is a...

    With all the stories we wind up covering which involve illegal aliens being caught, released, and left to roam around, it’s nice to see a report of ICE going out there and getting something done. That was apparently the case in Southern California this week, where agents were rude enough to identify hundreds of illegal immigrants with felony records (including murder), round them up and schedule them to exit the country. More than 240 people were taken into federal custody last week across Southern California after a four-day sweep for immigrants with criminal records in the country illegally, authorities...

    The headline from Investor’s Business Daily on their own poll uses the word “shock” – “Shock Poll: 59% Back Trump On Deportation of Illegals.” But as Jared Peterson wrote on these pages yesterday, for the last two years Rasmussen polling has demonstrated a huge gap between the overwhelming majority of Americans and the political establishment of the GOP on immigration policy. The IBD polling, which mentions mandatory deportation, reinforces this stunning disconnect between politicians and the people they supposedly serve, a chasm that Donald Trump has spotted and used to his huge advantage. IBD editorializes: The latest IBD/TIPP Poll asked...

And on Monday, a Santa Clara County advisory committee met to discuss whether to be more helpful to the federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and cooperate in a limited fashion. The committee will prepare a report which supervisors will discuss at a Sept....

    Immigration: When Donald Trump proposed mandatory deportation of illegal aliens, pundits and politicians on both sides of the political aisle were appalled. But on this issue it looks like Trump has the public on his side. The fire from the right was almost as fierce as that from the left. "It's not conservative and it's not realistic and it does not embrace American values," said Jeb Bush. Sen. Lindsey Graham called it "absolute gibberish." Conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer called the idea "crackpot" and "morally obscene." But the prize for overheated rhetoric goes to Hillary Clinton, who said Trump wants to...

    A large part of Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump’s stance on immigration involves building a wall along the southern U.S. border — a wall the real estate tycoon insists will be paid for by Mexico. But not so fast says GOP rival Jeb Bush. The former governor of Florida said over the weekend Trump is promising to build “a wall that can’t be built,” the Washington Examiner reported. It’s a determination Bush said he made after talking to mayors and law enforcement on the Texas-Mexico border, who he said told him a wall can’t be built because of the rugged...

    We are becoming accustomed to the liberal way of jurisprudence. Arrest, convict, release, and repeat. For some reason, we have lost the idea of justice and punishment. So, when we hear that a man, who has been convicted of repeated sexual assault, is caught reentering the country, it should hardly rate as news. But, it should cause us to ask how we stop this repeat offender. It seems that the criminal is no longer in fear of justice.

    Liberals and the MSM constantly tell us that illegals are good for the country, that they are hardworking and pay their own way. As a result, we're told that it would be wrong to deport them. Given that "reality," even staunch conservatives should agree with the following: let's let any illegal who works hard and pays his own way stay. If illegals are all that Democrats say they are, illegals will never cross the path of any government organization and won't burden honest Americans financially. In light of that, let's consider the following deportation solution: any illegal who costs the...

Over the sound of Bush talking, with harrowing music playing, the Trump video flashes mug shots of Francisco Sanchez, who was charged in...

When the Obama administration initiated its unilateral policy of “prosecutorial discretion”, allowing illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. as long they have not yet been convicted of a serious felony crime, they found attorney Vroom too slow in authorizing the release of illegal aliens who had committed crimes in the U.S. but did not yet meet the administration’s high threshold for seeking deportation of such undocumented aliens.

In the meantime, tax credits and refunds for illegal immigrants have become controversial. Mr. Trump says illegal immigrants get $4.2 billion in tax credits. He can point to a 2011 audit by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. It confirms that individuals who are not authorized to work in the United States were paid $4.2 billion in refundable credits.

On Tuesday in Las Vegas, however, Hillary told a room full of high school-age illegal immigrants that if she becomes America's next president, 'I will fight for comprehensive immigration reform and a path to citizenship.'

    Some are calling it the “height of hypocrisy,” bordering on demagoguery. Nikki Haley, South Carolina’s Republican governor, came out last Thursday and blasted possible White House plans to bring Guantanamo Bay prisoners to her state. The governor called a news conference and didn’t mince words. “We are absolutely drawing a line that we are not going to allow any terrorist to come into South Carolina,” Haley said. “We are not going to allow that kind of threat, we are not going to allow that kind of character to come in. ... Yet, at the same time she was drawing a...

    The Local ^ | 28 Aug 2015
    A Muslim mayor in the Tuscan seaside community of Monte Argentario has provoked a political outcry for refusing to accept any refugees. ... We don’t want refugees here, we don’t have the facilities for them,” Cerulli told The Local on Friday. “We don’t know where to put them, we don’t know what to do with them.” Cerulli, 60, is a former nuclear engineer and aligned with the New Centre-Right party (NCD) of interior minister, Angelino Alfano. During his engineering career he travelled extensively to countries including Saudi Arabia, Indonesia and the US, and is married to an Indonesian woman. He...

    QUESTION: How do you plan on dealing with 11 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S.? HILLARY CLINTON: Well, I'm glad you asked me that, becasue some on the other side who are already advocating to deport 11, 12 million people... I find it the height of irony that a party which espouses small government would want to unleash a massive government effort, which might include national guard and others, to go and literally pull people out of their homes and their workplaces, round them up and, I don't know, put them in buses or boxcars, in order to take them...
  • Jorge Ramos: Envisioning ‘Trumpland,’ what America would look like if Trump were president

    Let’s imagine for a moment the kind of country that Donald Trump, the leading Republican presidential hopeful, wants America to become if he’s elected. “Trumpland” would feature a 1,954-mile-long wall along the United States’ border with Mexico, to be constructed after the deportation of more than 11 million undocumented immigrants. Of course, Trump would ensure that the U.S.-born children of these immigrants lose their right to American citizenship, so they’d be deported as well. As Trump sees it, with the border wall up and the immigrants out, the U.S. could be a great nation again

    Immigration is THE issue for 2016 Why is it that when African Americans whose families have been in this country for hundreds of years commit crimes they go to jail and when illegal immigrants commit crimes they get released? In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide target illegal aliens, as do approximately two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants. More than 60 percent of the Hispanic gangs in Southern California—whose membership is in the tens of thousands—is illegal. These gangs are involved with drug-distribution schemes, extortion, drive-by assassinations, assaults, and robberies. According to the analysis conducted by...
  • Vanity-1973 Book Predicted Downfall of West Through Immigration

    The Camp of the Saints (Le Camp des Saints) is a 1973 French apocalyptic novel by Jean Raspail. The novel depicts a hypothetical setting whereby Third World mass immigration to France and the West leads to the destruction of Western civilization. Almost forty years after publication the book returned to the bestseller list in 2011. Granted the countries of orgin might be a little different but it is quite prescient for something written over 40 years ago.

    Donald Trump recently appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s show and was presented with an emotive scenario intended to bring Trump into the quandary of the establishment. In context of rounding up illegals for deportation, Mr. Trump was asked about the families. What about the undocumented people living in our country, working hard and raising children? Is Trump going to bust into every home Janet Reno-style and drag families, kids and all, to the southern border? This scenario creates quite the image and will be used repeatedly by the press to show just how unworkable, unfair, and heartless Trump’s idea really is....

    Once again, Donald Trump has managed to open up a robust national discussion about an issue that up to this point had been largely ignored by the political class. This time, the discussion is about so-called "birthright citizenship," the idea that whenever a foreign national (regardless of legal status and with a very few exceptions) has a child on American soil, this child automatically becomes an American citizen from birth. This approach to citizenship has been the de facto (though not de jure) approach to the issue of "anchor babies," the children of illegal aliens who come to the United...

    Two years ago, Trump met with immigration activists who told them their stories and asked for his support on immigration. "You convinced me" Trump said as the meeting ended. Donald Trump with Antonia Tijerino, Estuardo Rodriguez, and DREAMer activists at his office in 2013. Courtesy Estuardo Rodriguez On an August day two years ago, Donald Trump was in a much different place: He was just a billionaire with the simple goal of connecting his beauty pageant business with the upcoming Hispanic Heritage Awards. So at his New York penthouse office atop Trump Tower, he convened a meeting. Trump ushered in...
  • Illegal Aliens, Firearms and the 7th Circuit

    This week the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that people here in the US illegally are subject to 2nd Amendment Rights. For legal citizens, some states will not allow the sale of a firearm to someone who does not LEGALLY reside in that state thus impinging on a LEGAL CITIZEN's 2nd amendment rights. How is it that the 7th found that an illegal alien, regardless of which state they reside in can purchase a firearm when a legal citizen has to first LEGALLY RESIDE in the state?

    “Bin Laden 2016” raises the question: Does “birthright citizenship,” regardless of parentage, qualify one to become president of the United States? Now that I have your attention, let’s consider a logical consequence of the current policy of the U.S. government, granting “birthright citizenship” to a child born in the United States of illegal immigrants, otherwise known as an “anchor baby.” Section I of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” At...
