    Jurors Friday sentenced Johoan Rodriguez, a Mexican citizen in Houston illegally, to 55 years in prison for the drunk driving crash that killed a Houston police officer last year. He will have to serve at least half of that time before he is eligible for parole. Rodriguez, 27, pleaded guilty Monday to intoxication manslaughter, after hitting Kevin Will, a 38-year-old officer who was standing on the North Loop investigating a different drunk driving wreck. Jurors heard almost a week’s worth of evidence before being asked to determine the appropriate punishment. The defendant cried out and sobbed at hearing the decision...

    The new skirt length policy was instituted for safety reasons, but as far as these Muslim employees are concerned, safety be damned. It is all about forcing accommodation, in line with the principle that wherever Islamic law and practice conflict with American law and practice, American law and practice must give way. "New skirt length policy prompts Muslim walk-out at Minn. business," from KMSP TV, June 6 (thanks to all who sent this in): LE CENTER, Minn. (KMSP) - More than 30 Somali employees walked out in protest of dress code changes at a privately-owned business in Le Center, Minn....

    DENVER -- Two activists on a hunger strike occupied a Colorado campaign office for President Barack Obama on Thursday to demand that he sign an executive order allowing children of illegal immigrants to enroll in college and the military and pursue U.S. citizenship. Obama campaign staffers were using a back door to access the Denver field office as the protesters occupied a couch. The office was closed to the public. Veronica Gomez, 24, of Antioch, Calif., and Javier Hernandez, 23, of Denver, vowed to only drink fluids until Obama implements the DREAM Act, which would allow the children of illegal...

    As the Supreme Court weighs a decision on Arizona's controversial immigration law this summer, a new CBS News/New York Times poll shows that more than half of Americans see the law as "about right." The legislation, which was signed into law in April 2010, is considered among the most stringent immigration laws in the nation. It requires Arizona law enforcement members to check the citizenship status of anyone they believe appears to be an undocumented immigrant -- and has incited much controversy about whether or not it effectively legalizes racial profiling in a state with a heavy Latino population. According...

    In a sharply-worded letter, the Scott administration all but dares the Justice Department to sue Florida for allegedly violating voting rights laws. ______________________________________________ Gov. Rick Scotts elections chief on Wednesday defiantly refused a federal demand to stop purging non-citizens from Floridas voter rolls, intensifying an election-year confrontation with President Barack Obamas administration as each side accuses the other of breaking federal law. In a sharply worded letter, Scotts administration claimed the Department of Justice doesnt understand two federal voting laws at the heart of the dispute and was protecting potentially illegal voters more than legal ones. Florida also accused another...

The witness stayed behind while Rangel and two of his friends walked up to the driver, he said. Both parties...
  • Should Palm Tran deny discounted bus passes to illegal immigrants?

    Palm Beach Post (blog)‎ - ^ | June 6th, 2012 | Opinion Staff
    Palm Tran, Palm Beach Countys public bus service, sells $60 monthly passes to anyone who wants one. Poor residents are eligible to buy them at a discounted rate of $15. But now, poor illegal immigrants can no longer buy them at the discounted rate. The change has attracted protests from some immigrant-rights advocates, who say poor illegal immigrant families often include children whose parents may be less able to provide for them if they have to spend more on bus fares. But Palm Tran officials say it was never intended that bus fares for illegal immigrants be subsidized. West Palm...

    WEST PALM BEACH Palm Tran officials say they're selling fewer bus passes at a discount because, among other changes, they're not letting illegal immigrants buy them anymore. But some immigrant advocates say the rules leave some of the poorest residents of the county scrambling for ways to get to jobs or supermarkets. "They are relying more and more on taxis, which cost a lot more, and they are deferring going to doctors' appointments and social service appointments," Sergio Palacio, executive director of the Farmworker Coordinating Council of Palm Beach, told The Palm Beach Post last week. . .

    Federal officials on Tuesday launched a controversial program in the District that targets illegal immigration, but not without a fight from some city officials who argue the effort undermines trust between police and local immigrant communities. The program, known as Secure Communities, requires that arrestee fingerprints collected by local governments be shared with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement so the federal government can identify illegal immigrants and potentially move to detain or deport them. All other localities in the metropolitan area have been participating. But the D.C. Council on Tuesday quickly voted to limit the programs reach, saying it could...

    A federal department ruled last week that the Forest Service violated a Spanish-speaking womans civil rights by calling the Border Patrol to help translate during a routine stop, saying it was humiliating to Hispanics and an illicit backdoor way to capture more illegal immigrants. The ruling by the Agriculture Departments assistant secretary for civil rights could change policies nationwide as law enforcement agencies grapple with how far they can go in trying to help the Border Patrol while not running afoul of racial profiling standards. Assistant Secretary Joe Leonard Jr. said calling the Border Patrol automatically escalates encounters between Hispanics...

    As summer blockbuster season kicks into high gear, big-budget action movies like The Avengers, Battleship, and Prometheus remind us that there's one thing that unites Americans: Our shared fear of an alien attack. They also remind us that when the invading space fleet arrives, humanity is not going to surrender without a fight to our intergalactic invaders. Instead, we will band together to fight off their incredibly advanced weaponry with our ... well, with what, exactly? Are we really ready to battle our would-be alien overlords?

    routine traffic stop resulted in the discovery of a human trafficking operation, according to law enforcement officials. Fairfax County police pulled over a white Ford E-350 with Texas plates on Interstate 66 on Wednesday and found 19 people jammed inside the van, including 18 illegal aliens, charging documents said. Police called in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, who charged two people with transportation of illegal aliens. Sixteen of the passengers were from Guatemala. The 17th, an unaccompanied 11-year-old girl, was from El Salvador. Overloaded vans are dangerous, experts say. In April, nine illegal immigrants were killed when a Chevy...

In Los Angeles, dozens of gang interventionists and current and former gang members gathered to lend their support for the peace process. Pacificas Ernesto Arce files this report from Los Angeles.

    Did aliens create the human race? If so, does that negate the existence of God? Or, did God create the aliens? Despite the advancement of science and technology, Marshall-Green believes that humans will always have faith -- even if its one day proven that aliens were our creators, not God. I absolutely think that religion will always be a part of humanity, because it was one of the first inventions of man, he said.

Immigrants' List unveiled the inductees into its second annual Local Hall of Shame. According to this far-left PAC, the "winners" share the following characteristics: These are politicians who have benefited politically from spreading fear and misinformation about immigration, and have enacted harmful policies that are hurting local economies and hurting families. Huh? Yes, we admit,...
