  • Federal Appeals Courts Say Illegal Aliens Have No 2nd Amendment Gun Rights

    05/11/2012 7:53:12 AM PDT · by Sasparilla · 25 replies
    The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals has agreed with the Fifth Circuit Court this week in ruling that Illegal aliens have no right to own or possess a firearm while being here. The Firth Circuit had said earlier that illegal immigrants are not part of the "people" protected by the Second Amendment and have no constitutional right to bear arms. Emmanuel Huitron–Guizar entered a conditional guilty plea to being an illegal alien in possession of firearms. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison, and then will be deported when he finishes the sentence. According to the Court's opinion, “Mr....

    Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick compared Alabama and Arizona immigration policies to McCarthyism and Jim Crow in a speech Monday to students at Tufts University, according to a story on Boston.com. “The actions of various states to take matters into their own hands have been ham-fisted, self-defeating, and even racist,’’ Patrick was quoted as saying. The tone of Patrick’s speech Monday - he called much of the debate surrounding immigration reform “hysterical and poisonous’’ - has struck some state lawmakers and immigration policy specialists as more vehement than previous speeches, the story said. “The public discourse about immigration is as toxic...

    As he walked into the Washington Court Hotel today, Sen. Marco Rubio was greeted by members of a business group from Des Moines. "Hopefully you'll see more of Iowa," a woman told him. Rubio laughed. Pictures were taken. Wink, wink. But as he charmed his guests, Rubio also delivered a lengthy and substantive speech about U.S. policy and his vision of American exceptionalism. "If we decline, who rises?" he asked a room full of Democrats and Republicans. A question and answer session that followed pulled out the news of the day when the subjected turned to immigration. Rubio sought to...

    Here we go. Ever since Obama took office, opponents of illegal immigration knew it would come to this. This Administration has already dismantled the enforcement regime against illegal aliens. They engineered a unilateral amnesty for nearly 2 million illegal aliens by a stroke of Obama's pen last August. They sued to stop states like Arizona, Alabama and Georgia from enforcing existing immigration laws after the Feds failed to do so. The Attorney General has bullied states like Texas and South Carolina, by blocking voter ID laws designed to stop voter fraud by illegal aliens and others. But no matter what...

    Fueling the debate over the pervasiveness of election fraud in Florida, a Miami Herald article Tuesday exposed the possibility that thousands of illegal votes have been cast by foreigners, particularly in South Florida. The Florida Division of Elections is already working to stem the problem, its spokesman told the Herald. For the past year, the division has joined forces with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles to identify potential fraud by rooting out foreigners on the voting rolls, division spokesman Chris Cate said.

    For many New Yorkers, the growth of the Mexican immigrant population has been not unlike the experience of falling asleep at the start of a winter storm and waking up to find the city covered in a foot of snow. Subtly and quickly, the population has exploded, growing 27-fold in the past three decades, to about 183,200 from about 6,740 in 1980, according to census figures. It is now the third-largest immigrant population in the city, after Dominicans and the Chinese. In recognition of the growing importance of Mexicans to the city and its future, the City University of New...
  • Seven Dead As Van Plunges Into Bronx Zoo

    Seven people, including three children, have been killed after an out-of-control van drove off a road and plunged more than 100ft into New York's Bronx Zoo. The van had been heading south down the Bronx River Parkway when it suddenly bounced off the central section, careered across two lanes and then hit the guardrail. Police said it flipped over the rail and then landed upside down in an area that is used by the zoo to store its monorail trains, some way from the animal enclosures. All seven people in the van were killed in the accident. They have been...

    Rio Grande Guardian ^ | May 10, 2012 | Steve Taylor
    WESLACO, May 10 - The two candidates running for Hidalgo County sheriff offer sharply different views on the threat to the Rio Grande Valley from Mexican drug cartels. At a candidates’ forum on Tuesday, challenger Geovani Hernandez claimed the Valley was “infested with drug cartel members.” He also told the Guardian that his secret weapon in securing victory at the polls could be the Women in Action group that has sought to galvanize residents in Hidalgo County colonias. Hidalgo County Sheriff Guadalupe ‘Lupe’ Treviño said Hernandez’s claims about the level of infiltration by drug cartels in the Valley are greatly...

    by John HillStand With Arizona Thank you, Granite State! The New Hampshire Senate yesterday joined the House in passing a resolution (full text below) proclaiming that "the state of New Hampshire fully supports the State of Arizona’s right to protect its borders and citizens" by passing its immigration law S.B. 1070. The resolution's path to passage was very contentious, with opponents testifying hysterically against it in both chambers, and Democrats trying all manner of procedural gimmicks to try and derail it - all in vain. House Concurrent Resolution 2 (HCR2) passed the Senate 15-9 last evening after slapping down an...

    In a new crackdown, Florida officials are investigating the citizenship of thousands of registered voters. CBS4 News has learned 2,000 of those potential non-citizen voters are registered in Miami-Dade County. At least one person on the list has had the opportunity to vote for the past 40 years. “These are the people that we have to notify by mail that we have a reason to believe that they’re a non-citizen,” said Christina White, Deputy Supervisor of Elections.

    by John HillStand With Arizona As most Americans know, Florida is a state where a small number of votes can make a huge difference. After all, the 2000 presidential election was decided by just over 500 votes. So when there is evidence of potential voter fraud, officials better take it seriously. But they rarely have. Stand With Arizona, along with FAIR, have urged Florida to check on evidence of potential illegal alien voters for over a year with no action taken. That is, until a Tampa NBC affiliate uncovered shocking evidence of illegal aliens who voted in multiple elections...

    An undocumented worker in southern Indiana told 13 Investigates just how easy it truly is. He said four other illegal immigrants file tax returns using his address, even though none of them actually lives there. And he said this year, those four workers filed tax returns claiming 20 children live inside his small trailer home. As a result, the IRS sent the illegal immigrants tax refunds totaling more than $29,000. But none of the 20 children listed as dependents on the tax returns lives in Indiana – or even in the United States. "No, they don't live here," admitted the...

    The Republican National Committee attempted to walk back a potentially bruising botched response Tuesday after an official said Mitt Romney is still making up his mind on immigration. “As a candidate, to my understanding, he’s still deciding what his position on immigration is,” said Bettina Inclan, the RNC’s director of Hispanic outreach… Within minutes, as Inclan’s comments started spreading on Twitter, RNC spokeswoman Kirsten Kukowski stepped in and said Inclan’s comments had been misconstrued. “We never said the governor is still deciding on immigration,” said Kukowski. “I want to make sure we are exponentially clear.”

    CANTON, OHIO — An illegal immigrant who was under the influence when he struck a Massillon City School District bus carrying eight high school students in February is expected to be deported from the U.S. after he serves a nine-month jail sentence. Stark County Common Pleas Judge Charles Brown also placed Victor Velasquez, 22, who was living at 935 Green Ave. SW, in Massillon, on five years probation, revoked his driver’s license for five years and ordered him to serve 100 hours of community service. However, the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement likely will take Velasquez into custody upon his...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) aims to have his alternative to the DREAM Act proposal on paper in the next few weeks and passed by the end of the summer. "Our goal is to pass something this summer in time for kids who plan to go to school this fall," Rubio press secretary Alex Conant said Monday. Rubio's proposal would provide non-immigrant visas to illegal immigrants' children who attend college or serve in the military. "So just like lots of people come to the United States on work visas or on student visas or tourism visas or whatever, this would be...
