    Coach is Right ^ | 9/9/2012 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    A PJ Media undercover camera investigation reveals the falsifying of crime statistics along the Texas-Mexico border in order to grab some $6 million grant dollars from the federal government. When Homeland Security Chief Janet Napolitano’s good friend Lupe Trevino took over as sheriff in Hidalgo County, violent crime stats along that illegal alien pipeline into the U.S. somehow improved dramatically. How could that have happened so suddenly? PJ Media reporter Bryan Preston says, “The grants pressure local law enforcement to tell false crime stats and fake border crime figures.” He is calling out local, state, and federal crime reporting agencies...

    Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said in his Democratic National Convention speech that immigrants would find life so intolerable under a Mitt Romney administration that they would, “self-deport.” “Instead of supporting their dream, Governor Romney wants to make their lives so miserable, so oppressive, so intolerable that they would leave behind the life they’ve built and ‘self-deport’,” he said. “But we believe we’re a better country than that. And thanks to President Obama, as we keep on fighting for the DREAM Act, they can remain in the country they love.” Really, Villaraigosa? You think so little of the immigrants of...

    A rare hot sun beat down on Tacoma in late August 2011, but Oscar Campos Estrada spent all of his time indoors. By then, Oscar had worn the gray uniform of a Pierce County Jail inmate for nearly four months. But the jail term was the least of his worries. Two decades after he illegally slipped over the U.S. border from Mexico, Oscar’s life as an illegal immigrant finally had caught up to him. A few months earlier, a Tacoma police officer had stopped Oscar on his drive to work for a cracked windshield. The cop quickly discovered Oscar was...

    His rags-to-riches immigrant journey and good business sense crowned Juvenal Chavez the king of Latino supermarkets in the Bay Area, but now the CEO is fighting a harsh attack on the reputation of his 21-store Mi Pueblo Foods grocery chain. Mi Pueblo stunned some of its more than 3,000 employees last month when it told them it had joined E-Verify, a Department of Homeland Security program that screens the immigration status of new hires. Now, with union activists accusing Chavez of betraying his own undocumented immigrant roots and threatening a consumer boycott if he doesn't pull out of E-Verify by...

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Democrats broke yet another barrier Wednesday when they invited an illegal immigrant young adult onto the stage at their nominating convention in Charlotte — part of a historic Hispanic outreach program the party hopes will cement ties to the fast-growing ethnic voting bloc in the country. It’s likely the first time an illegal immigrant has taken the podium at a major party convention, and highlights President Obama’s own stance on the issue: The student, Benita Veliz, had her deportation halted under Mr. Obama’s non-deportation policies. In a pointed political appeal, Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, the Illinois Democrat...

The 27-year-old from San Antonio became the first illegal immigrant to address a national political convention. “Like so many Americans of all races and backgrounds, I was brought here as a child,” she told the crowd Wednesday night. “I’ve been here ever since.” Veliz, an advocate for the Dream Act — legislation that would pave the way for illegal immigrants to legal residency...

    A U.S. judge ruled on Wednesday that a controversial Arizona "show-your-papers" immigration provision that has been upheld by the Supreme Court may go into effect, but in a split ruling blocked another measure making it a crime to harbor illegal immigrants. The measure that was upheld, part of a broader law to combat illegal immigration in the state bordering Mexico, home to an estimated 360,000 undocumented immigrants, requires police to check the immigration status of people they stop and suspect are in the country illegally.

Bolton said there is no evidence of '"racial profiling" against Latinos, as the plaintiffs accused, and they cannot block the law from being...

    GLENDALE, Ariz. -- At least 40 suspected illegal immigrants were taken into custody at a Glendale home overnight. The alleged drop house is near 65th and Olive avenues.

    CHARLOTTE -- There's plenty of talk about illegal immigration, but folks at a church in uptown Charlotte were hoping for prayers about it too. The Rev. Laura Barclay of Winston-Salem stood at the door of St. Peter's Catholic Church in Charlotte during the opening day of the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday to welcome people inside to see the documentary "Gospel Without Borders." Barclay is the wife of Ryan Eller, one of the delegates from Forsyth County attending the Democratic National Convention this week. "This is biblically-based and non-partisan," Barclay said.
