    The Baltimore Sun ^ | March 26, 2012 | Dan Rodricks
    Common sense about the nation's immigration policy vanishes from the room whenever someone asks, "What part of illegal don't you understand?" It's a real conversation killer, that line. People who use it aren't interested in a discussion. They think law enforcement agencies should round up the estimated 11.5 million men, women and children who aren't authorized to live in the U.S. and deport them. People fixated on the notion of illegality — the crossing of a border without papers — aren't interested in knowing why these immigrants might have come here, what hardships they experienced. They don't care if the...

    I have a bone to pick with Hispanics. Mainly illegals. Because I am one. Hispanic, that is — not illegal. I’m actually a fourth-generation Hispanic American on my mother’s side. In fact, this shout-out also goes to all the liberals who insist on calling Hispanics a minority group in need of help. Clearly, you gringos aren’t noticing what’s happening on the Mexican/American border or the huge population numbers in places like LA and San Diego that clearly beg to differ with the term “minority.” And those numbers are only growing. I grew up no more than three hours from the...

    by John HillStand With ArizonaWe have become sadly accustomed to California - America's Sanctuary State - sinking lower and lower into utter lawlessness for the sake of naked racial politics. But whatever they do in Sacramento doesn't even come close to the utter madness that is Los Angeles - which makes the rest of the state look conservative by comparison. This week saw the Los Angeles Police Department announcing that it will soon start ignoring California state law, which requires police to impound the vehicles of unlicensed drivers for 30 days - because it is "unfair" to illegal aliens!That's right....

    A federal immigration court judge in San Francisco put a deportation proceeding on hold Friday for a gay California man who is an undocumented immigrant and married to a man who is a U.S. citizen, the couple's attorney said. Alfonso Garcia, 35, who came to the United States as a boy with his parents, and his husband, Brian Willingham, 37, are petitioning the federal immigration service for legal residency based on their marriage, said attorney Lavi Soloway. The judge put Garcia's deportation proceeding on hold while Garcia's legal residency, or green card, application is being processed, Soloway said. The next...

    by John HillStand With Arizona Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) has all but shut down its workplace enforcement activities since Obama took office. Even with the longest sustained bout of high unemployment since the Great Depression, Obama's ICE has slashed workplace enforcement against illegals by a stunning 70 percent. ICE claims they are leaving illegal workers alone to steal jobs in order to have a "sustained focus on criminal offenders". But as we pointed out on Wednesday, ICE has failed with criminals as well, highlighted by their release of a serial child rapist - with 42 counts - who remains...

    Police to ignore California impound law amid concern of fairness to illegal immigrants By William Lajeunesse Published March 22, 2012 | FoxNews.com The Los Angeles Police Department will soon start ignoring California state law, which requires police to impound the vehicles of unlicensed drivers for 30 days. The majority of unlicensed motorists in Los Angeles are immigrants who are in the country illegally and have low-income jobs. The LAPD says the state's impound law is unfair because it limits their ability to get to their jobs and imposes a steep fine to get their car back. As long as drivers...

    A former Mexican official arrested last month in the Rio Grande Valley after being accused of failing to pay a fine has been charged with impersonating a U.S. citizen to cross the border. U.S. marshals arrested Edmundo Lozano Rendón, 55, in McAllen, saying he didn't pay a $7,500 fine assessed when he was convicted of money laundering charges in 1992. He was most recently a spokesman for the border city of Reynosa, and has worked for the Tamaulipas state Institutional Revolutionary Party and for former Tamaulipas Gov. Eugenio Hernández, who is under investigation by the Mexican government.

    PHOENIX (AP) -- Federal authorities say they won't deport six illegal immigrants arrested during a Phoenix protest over Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's (ar-PY'-ohs) immigration policies. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials said Wednesday that they determined that the protesters did not fall under "ICE's enforcement priorities."
  • Court upholds ban on Texas immigrant housing law

    DALLAS (AP) -- A federal appeals court Wednesday upheld a lower court ruling that stopped a Dallas suburb's ban on illegal immigrants seeking housing. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Farmers Branch overstepped its authority in 2008 when it passed a law calling on the city's building inspector to check the immigration status of anyone wanting to rent an apartment who wasn't a U.S. citizen. Under the law, illegal immigrants would have been barred from rental housing, and landlords who knowingly allowed them to stay could have their rental licenses barred. The appellate court said the city...

    by John HillStand With Arizona We have chronicled Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) outrageous new directives, instantly removing between 300,000 and 1.4 million illegal aliens from the "enforcement priority" list - in effect granting them indefinite amnesty from deportation, without any authorization from Congress whatsoever. The rationale given for this lawless amnesty from ICE Director John Morton is that he would have a "sustained focus on criminal offenders". Instead we have chronicled one failure after another by ICE to detain or even keep track of criminal illegals and repeat offenders who present imminent risks to the public - such as...

    A suspected child rapist is on the loose and in a statement obtained exclusively by The Daily Caller, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement accepts responsibility for releasing him. The man is identified by ICE as Amado Espinosa-Ramirez. Chicago police arrested him last August, and he was ultimately charged with forty-two counts of predatory sexual acts. A publicly available inventory of the charges against Espinosa-Ramirez lists multiple counts of sexual relations within the family, multiple counts of sexual assault with the use of force and multiple counts of sexual assault involving a minor less than thirteen years old. After his Aug....

    On January 1, 2011 a law banning certain “ethnic studies” classes went into effect in Arizona. The law makes it illegal for a school district to teach courses which “promote the overthrow of the US government, promote resentment of a particular race or class of people, are designed primarily for students of a particular ethnic group or advocate ‘ethnic solidarity’ instead of the treatment of pupils as individuals.” (1) But it was not the ever-compassionate, ethnicity-conscious left which wrote and implemented legislation making it a crime to teach violence and racism. Rather, the law was passed by the Republican controlled...

They struggle to pay their bills, pay their rent or mortgage, and find work to feed their families. Meanwhile, millions of illegal aliens take jobs that Americans need , undercut wages, steal identities of Americans to sustain their employment fraud, and illegally collect welfare and social services to which they have no right. As American incomes decline, the amount of cash illegals send back to their home countries is at a...
