    The news should come as no surprise considering it centers on an administration that double-counts $716 billion in order to claim that the Obamacare extends the solvency of Medicare while looting the entitlement’s trust fund. The Daily Caller reports: Internal documents obtained by the House Judiciary Committee show that the Obama administration has been ‘cooking the books’ in order to reach their ‘record’ number of deported illegal immigrants, chairman Rep. Lamar Smith said Friday. Based on the internal U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) documents, the number of removals are actually down, the opposite of what the administration has been...

    California state legislators passed a bill Friday that seeks to protect undocumented immigrants charged with relatively minor crimes from being deported. The bill, by Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, would prohibit local police from detaining anyone on an immigration hold if the person is not charged with or has not been convicted of a serious or violent crime. The bill, which only needs the signature of Gov. Jerry Brown to become law, passed the Assembly on Friday after being amended in the state Senate to remove language that would have required police departments to develop plans to guard against racial...

The victim in this case is now 8-years-old. If convicted, the Mexican national faces up to life in prison. Garcia is currently being held at the Clare County Jail on $500,000 bond and an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer has been issued as well.

    President Obama and his useless administration insist that the drug violence in Mexico is not spilling over the border into America. Don't buy the political BS from Washington, D.C. In fact, Jack Riley, the special agent in charge of the DEA's field office in Chicago, IL, says that the local street gangs are proxies for the Mexican drug cartels in the battle for turf as reported by Armen Keteyian for CBS News: Riley says Mexican cartels have a significant influence in Chicago's gang violence problem. "Let's take the gloves off on that," he said. "We know that the majority of...

    Border police jeeps hurtle along hot, dusty tracks past potato fields on their way to the river that marks the Greek-Turkish border. Sirens blaring, the convoys have been repelling wave after wave of migrants. Greece's remote Evros region has turned into Europe's main battleground against illegal immigration; more than two-thirds of people making the clandestine journey into the European Union pass through here from neighboring Turkey. Greece launched an aggressive campaign this month to try to seal its 200-kilometer (130-mile) northeastern border, as it faces a debilitating financial crisis that has caused a swell in joblessness and a surge in...

    A Brownsville man is behind bars after he allegedly sent a series of sexually explicit text messages to an 11-year-old girl he reportedly met on Facebook. Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) investigators arrested 25-year-old Juan Carlos Cuellar on Tuesday. The Brownsville man is behind bars at the Cameron County Jail under an on-line solicitation of a minor charge and an immigration detainer. Court records obtained by Action 4 News show that Cuellar sent at least 300 text messages to the girl back in May. The investigation started when the girl's mother took the girl's cell phone from her to...

Lamar Smith said Friday. Based on the internal U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) document,s the number of removals are actually down, the opposite of what the administration has been claiming. According to the committee’s review, in 2011 officials at the Department of Homeland Security began including the number of individuals removed through the Alien Transfer Exit Program (ATEP) in its annual removal numbers. ATEP is a program which...

    Ten federal immigration agents have filed suit against Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano claiming recent directives are forcing them to break the law and ignore their duties when it comes to deporting illegal immigrants. The suit was filed Thursday in Texas federal court by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. It challenges recent directives allowing some illegal immigrants -- particularly non-felons and those who came to the U.S. as children -- to stay and, in some cases, get work permits. The suit, obtained by Fox News, says the agents are being forced to "violate federal law." It says the new directive...

FOX News broke the story shortly after 12 p.m. on Thursday. The lawsuit has been filed in the District Court for the Northern District of Texas, which is in the 5th Circuit. Kris Kobach is representing the agents and officers, and NumbersUSA is financing the effort. The complaint asserts, and NumbersUSA agrees, that the DREAM Directive: Orders federal...

    ATLANTA — Illegal immigrants who are granted permission to stay in the country under an Obama administration policy announced in June will be eligible for driver’s licenses in Georgia, the state’s attorney general wrote in a letter to the governor. “While I do not agree with the actions of the President in issuing the directive, it has been implemented by the Department of Homeland Security, USCIS, and state law recognizes the approval of deferred action status as a basis for issuing a temporary driver’s license,” Attorney General Sam Olens, a Republican, wrote in a letter obtained Thursday by The Associated...

    Governor Jan Brewer has put the kibosh on Barack Obama’s unconstitutional, Dream Act “end run” around the US Congress by signing an executive order which will keep an estimated 80,000 illegal aliens off of Arizona welfare rolls. In June, Barack Obama directed the U.S. Citizen and Immigration Services (USCIS)—a division of Homeland Security–to provide illegal aliens the means of deferring federal deportation orders. With this Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the president allows illegals who claim to have come to the United States as children to both avoid deportation and apply for US work permits in their state of...

    The Washington Post. ^ | August 22,2012 | Editorial Board
    THE GOAL of attrition through law enforcement for illegal immigrants — or, to use the term Mitt Romney favors, “self-deportation” — has suffered a series of setbacks. The latest came Monday when a federal appeals court blocked major parts of Alabama’s draconian immigration law, including one that required public schools to collect information on pupils’ immigration status. It is increasingly clear that Republican state lawmakers and governors have gone too far in their campaign to harass and bully the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants in the hope that they will simply disappear. Alabama has the distinction of having enacted the nation’s...
  • Illegal immigrants could reap more than $7B in tax credits this year, senator says

    Illegal immigrants could receive more than $7 billion this year in federal tax credits, according to one estimate, thanks to a loophole in the law that allows people not authorized to work to reap the government payments with no questions asked. Sen. Jeff Sessions' office calculated that, based on recent trends, illegal immigrants could receive roughly $7.4 billion through a provision known as the Additional Child Tax Credit. That's more than quadruple what the payout was four years ago, but the payments have been steadily increasing over the past decade. Though illegal immigrants are prohibited from receiving similar tax credits,...

    EDINBURG — Linda Medrano and Elida Perez set out each day with clipboards, stacks of brochures, and practiced eyes for spotting chronic yet often treatable ailments. As promotoras, paid part-time workers tasked with bringing health care basics to the rural poor, their destinations are the colonias of Hidalgo County — unincorporated Texas-Mexico border communities divided into low-cost plots and populated largely by immigrant families. Of late, the mix of literature that promotoras carry has included applications for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), known here as “estampillas,” Spanish for food stamps. The push, fueled by state and federal grants, mirrors...
