    TUCSON, Arizona – Members of the Hispanic community of southern Arizona marched through the streets Tuesday to demand an end to the deportations and racism provoked by state laws like SB 1070. Hispanics “are the base and strength of the pyramid we live on,” Raul Alcaraz, representative of the South Side Workers Center, told some 200 demonstrators carrying banners through the streets of Tucson slamming Arizona’s SB 1070 and deportations. “We’re marching here to defend immigrants’ rights that are being attacked with unjust laws like SB 1070. This law has hurt many of our communities, sowing terror and breaking up...

    (INDIANAPOLIS) - Millions of illegal immigrants are getting a bigger tax refund than you. Bob Segall, of WTHI reports finding a massive tax loophole that provides billions of dollars in tax credits to undocumented workers and, in many cases, people who have never stepped foot in the United States. And you are paying for it. I nside his central Indiana office, a longtime tax consultant sits at his desk, shaking his head in disbelief. "There is not a doubt in my mind there's huge fraud taking place here," he said, slowly flipping through the pages of a tax return. The...

    One of the men accused in last month's kidnapping that police say has ties to the Gulf Cartel was arrested by Brownsville police this weekend for allegedly molesting a child. Brownsville police spokesman J.J. Trevino said police brought Hector Primitivo Salinas, 39, of Brownsville, from the Cameron County jail to the city jail Friday after investigators determined he was wanted in connection with an incident reported in February. A 9-year-old girl told a teacher in February that Salinas touched her inappropriately. Police declined to release the girl's relationship with Salinas or the circumstances surrounding her contact with him. The school...

    Mexico has issued the U.S. government what amounts to a diplomatic threat for exonerating a Border Patrol agent who shot an illegal immigrant near the Texas border nearly two years ago after being assaulted with rocks. The shooting occurred in the summer of 2010 when the federal agent, Jesus Mesa, spotted a group of Mexicans crossing the Rio Grande near El Paso. U.S. authorities say Mesa fatally shot a teen (Sergio Hernández-Guereca) traveling with the group in self-defense after the teen and his friends threw rocks at the agent. Last year a Texas judge dismissed a wrongful death lawsuit against...

  • Judge Says Prosecution Of Convicted DHS Director “Overkill”

    Judicial Watch ^ | May 1, 2012
    The federal judge who presided over the trial of a Homeland Security director convicted of helping an illegal immigrant avoid deportation disagrees with the verdict and has ordered a new trial, saying it was “overkill” for the government to prosecute the official in the first place. This sort of blatant judicial activism may seem unbelievable but this is a true story, straight out of the United States District Court in Massachusetts. A Reagan-appointed judge, Douglas P. Woodlock, didn’t like the outcome of a trial and has issued an order for a new one. His official reason is that he...

    Stand With Arizona ^ | 05-01-2012 | John Hill
    by John HillStand With Arizona A stalwart foe of illegal immigration has won a victory over sanctuary city policies in a major U.S. city. Atlanta has repealed an ordinance that recognized a particular Mexican ID - the infamous "Matricula Consular" card - for city government transactions. The city council voted to repeal the ordinance - which was adopted in 2004 - after a complaint was filed with the newly created state Immigration Enforcement and Review Board - which was created after passage of Georgia's Arizona-style immigration law H.B. 87 in July 2010. The complaint, filed in February by longtime...

    (CNSNews.com) – If the Supreme Court decides in favor of Arizona’s tough immigration bill, the Obama attorney arguing against SB 1070 predicted “mass incarceration” of Latinos. But Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio told CNSNews.com that he does not see that as a problem in his jurisdiction. “We lock up people all the time,” Arpaio said in a phone interview last week. “Since I started enforcement, we’ve arrested on the streets, investigated – in our jails over 51,000. “I didn’t see any problem, other than the fact that some activists and politicians in Washington (don’t) like me enforcing the illegal immigration...
  • Surge in child immigrants stresses support network

    McALLEN, Texas (AP) - An unprecedented surge of children caught trudging through South Texas scrublands or crossing at border ports of entry without their families has sent government and nonprofit agencies scrambling to expand their shelter, legal representation and reunification services. On any given day this year, the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement has been caring for more than 2,100 unaccompanied child immigrants. The influx came to light last week when 100 kids were taken to Lackland Air Force Base near San Antonio for temporary housing. It was the first time the government has turned to the Defense Department -...

    On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will listen to arguments in the Obama administration's lawsuit against Arizona's immigration-enforcement law. In advance of the hearing, public opinion polls are showing that by more than a 2-to-1 margin, Americans support Arizona's efforts and don't want the high court to overturn it. The recent poll about the Arizona's Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act, SB 1070 shows: 65% of voters favor the law, while 31% oppose it. 84% of Republicans favor Arizona’s law, while 46% of Democrats do. 51% majority of Democrats opposes the law. Independents favor the law by a 40...

    TULTITLAN, Mexico — About 200 impoverished and undocumented migrants recently packed into a small building in this ramshackle town 20 miles north of Mexico City. Nearly all were from Honduras and headed for the U.S. border. Almost none spoke a word in the shelter’s dark main room, where the only thing thicker than the smell of unwashed clothes was a sense of fear. “Yeah, I’m scared,” said Victor Caseres, 26, who had traveled 750 miles by hopping freight trains to arrive at the shelter, one of more than a dozen run by the Catholic Church in Mexico to provide refuge...

    The issue arose early in the oral argument, even before the solicitor general could make his claim of exclusivity. Justice Scalia kicked off, asking Mr. Clement whether he would concede "that the State has to accept within its borders all people who have no right to be there, that the Federal Government has no interest in removing ... and the State has no power to close its borders to people who have no right to be there." This time Mr. Clement answered: "I think my answer to that is no." But he did not back up his answer with either...

    “I think the massive boom in Mexican immigration is over and I don’t think it will ever return to the numbers we saw in the 1990s and 2000s,” said Douglas Massey, a professor of sociology and public affairs at Princeton University and co-director of the Mexican Migration Project, which has been gathering data on the subject for 30 years. Nearly 1.4 million Mexicans moved from the United States to Mexico between 2005 and 2010,

    Rasmussen ^ | 4-27-12 | Rasmussen
    As the U.S. Supreme Court wrestles with the Obama administration's challenge of Arizona's crackdown on illegal immigration, the overall issue of immigration remains misunderstood by both political parties in Washington. Many Washington Republicans confuse voter opposition to illegal immigration with opposition to all immigration. Their remarks often contain an ugly tone toward those who want to come to America. Many Washington Democrats confuse public respect for hardworking immigrants with a belief that borders and immigration laws don't matter. Their remarks often contain an ugly tone toward those who believe the nation's immigration laws should be enforced. On the issues before...

    Emboldened by signals that the U.S. Supreme Court may uphold parts of Arizona's immigration law, legislators and activists across the country say they are gearing up to push for similar get-tough measures in their states. "We're getting our national network ready to run with the ball, and saturate state legislatures with versions of the law," said William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration. "We believe we can pass it in most states." That goal may be a stretch, but lawmakers in about a dozen states told The Associated Press they were interested in proposing Arizona-style laws if its key...

    SOUTH OF ALAMO — Investigators performed a walk-through Thursday at a home here to learn more about the circumstances surrounding the shooting of a kidnapping suspect by a federal agent. The procedure is standard protocol for incidents like the one that unfolded Wednesday afternoon at 214 San Bernardino St. south of Alamo, San Juan police Chief Juan Gonzalez said. A U.S. marshal opened fire during a combined effort to rescue a woman and her two young children, who had allegedly been kidnapped by the woman’s ex-boyfriend the night before. Police identified the kidnapping suspect Thursday as Eliseo Alvarado, 19. He...
