    Authorities have arrested a man in the Mexican state of Puebla who is wanted in the traffic collision deaths of Marion County Deputy Kelly Fredinburg and another man in 2007, according to the Oregon State Police. "It has been nearly 10 years since the tragic loss of Deputy Kelly Fredinburg," Marion County Sheriff Jason Myers said in a news release issued Saturday. "While no one has ever given up hope that the individual responsible for this tragedy would be apprehended, it has been an emotional, trying and difficult journey to reach this point." Fredinburg, then 33, had worked for the...

    Forget sanctuary cities: The next heated congressional battle on immigration could be over “sanctuary campuses” — the dozens of colleges and universities that say they will resist any cooperation with federal immigration agents, unless they are forced to by law. Rep. Duncan Hunter, California Republican, introduced legislation this month to do just that, saying Congress should strip schools of billions of dollars in federal financial aid unless they start cooperating with authorities.

    California has withdrawn its request to the federal government for permission to allow undocumented people to obtain health insurance from the state exchange, with a lawmaker linking the decision to concerns about the incoming Trump administration. State Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens, called the action “the first California casualty of the Trump presidency.” Lara, who carried the bill seeking the change and requested Wednesday’s move, said in a statement that he doesn’t “trust the Trump administration to do what’s best for California and to implement the waiver in a way that protects people’s privacy and health.” “I take Trump at...

    Vice President-elect Mike Pence said Wednesday that it is possible President-elect Donald Trump will use executive action in his first days in office to secure the border with Mexico. The comment from Pence comes days after Trump said that on Monday, which he considers his first day in office, he would sign an executive order covering “strong borders.” Pence told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd in an interview that the Trump administration is looking to sign executive orders and repeal those enacted by President Barack Obama in order to implement the new president’s agenda. Todd asked Pence about Trump’s comment that he...

    Yes it's true that Trump's tweets, exciting speeches, and ability to work the media assisted him in the primary and general election, but he never would have won the primary if he supported amnesty and wasn't for ending illegal immigration. The Establishment and the media don't mention this when discussing Trump's win. I wouldn't have supported him despite him taken on the Establishment if he was lax on immigration. Trump knew this when he spoke at CPAC in 2013 and warned the Republicans against passing amnesty. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/mar/15/cpac-2013-donald-trump-immigration-reform-suicide-/

    Billionaire investor George Soros will partner with Mastercard Inc on a venture they said could help migrants, refugees and others struggling within their communities worldwide to improve their economic and social status. The partnership, Humanity Ventures, stems from a pledge Soros made in September to earmark up to $500 million for investments to address challenges facing migrants and refugees. In a joint statement on Thursday, Mastercard and Soros said that despite billions of dollars of humanitarian and development assistance, millions of people remain marginalized, a situation the private sector can help rectify.

    (Reuters) - An undocumented immigrant from El Salvador is suing San Francisco alleging police violated the city's sanctuary city policy by turning him over to U.S. immigration authorities after he reported his car stolen. The lawsuit was filed on Tuesday on behalf of Pedro Figueroa Zarceno, 32, in federal court in San Francisco against the city and its police chief for violating his right to due process and breaking an ordinance barring municipal employees from cooperating with federal immigration authorities seeking to deport a person. Figueroa walked into a police station in November 2015 to report his car stolen, according...

    President Obama said he would regard any effort to round up and deport Dreamers as an attack on American "core values" that would cause him to speak out publicly. The so-called Dreamers, young people who were brought to the U.S. illegally as children, "for all practical purposes are American kids," Obama said at what is expected to be the final news conference of his tenure. "The notion that we would just arbitrarily or because of politics punish those kids, when they didn't do something themselves ... would merit my speaking out," he said. Obama's administration has protected more than 700,000...

    I couldn’t have imagined that President Obama could do any more harm to the Cuban people before he left office, but I was wrong. With only a week left in his presidency he announced that the long-standing policy of accepting Cubans that flee the Communist island of Cuba by sea — the policy known as “wet feet, dry feet” — would change. That policy has been in place since President Clinton declared it so after the horrific debacle of the Clinton administration’s handling of 9-year-old Elian Gonzalez. After the forced deportation of Elian Gonzalez by armed U.S. federal agents under...

    In the final week of the Obama Administration, the outgoing Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) extended the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for Somali nationals and others for an additional 18 months. The program was not scheduled to expire until March 2017. Somali nationals, and “eligible individuals without nationality who last habitually resided in Somalia,” now have an additional 18 months added to their “temporary” status that has been in place since 1991. The program was extended by President George W. Bush in 2001 and by President Obama in 2012. When a “temporary” status lasts 25 years, it’s not temporary at...

    President-Elect Donald Trump could get Mexico to pay for a wall along the southwest border of the United States and close a giant tax loophole at the same time, according to several experts. Building the wall — and making Mexico pay for it — was a signature issue of Trump’s victorious presidential campaign. So critics pounced when he indicated earlier this month he intended to ask Congress to appropriate funds to begin construction. Broken promise, they chortled.But the government cannot spend money without congressional authorization, and Trump has said Mexico will reimburse the Untied States for the cost. He has...

    A proposed law that would punish countries that refuse to take back their illegal immigrant criminals is two years too late to save Casey Chadwick, but the Texas congressman behind it figures it’s the least Washington can do. Chadwick was murdered in 2015 by Jean Jacques, an illegal immigrant from Haiti and one of thousands freed onto U.S. streets each year after they serve prison time because their homelands refuse deportation. But a proposal by Rep. Brian Babin, R-Texas, the Criminal Alien Deportation Enforcement Act, would force such countries to take back their citizens or risk losing foreign aid and...

    In September, D.C.’s Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser introduced the Homeless Services Modernization Amendment Act, in order to update and improve the 2005 Homeless Services Reform Act. The proposed legislation would now require homeless individuals seeking shelter to provide proof of residency, to ensure that District residents receive priority. Ironically, the city has taken the exact opposite approach to the issue of illegal immigration. Mayor Bowser announced this week that she has pledged $500,000 in taxpayer money for a grant program to help illegal-immigrant residents in deportation proceedings, among other services. Interestingly enough, there seems to be no requirements for such...

    Immigrants who have come to our country in search of better opportunities have been the economic backbone of America for well over a century. In the face of a difficult job market for many immigrants, their keys to the American Dream may not be readily available.Nowhere is this truer than with nonunion jobs, which typically offer lower pay, limited benefits and virtually no job security. In a new country with little knowledge of the labor market, these work conditions make immigrants more vulnerable to worker exploitation, sometimes with heartbreaking results.

Mike Pence is leading an effort to get final approvals through various agencies and through Congress for the wall to begin.” “I...

    Mexico has insisted it won't pay for President-elect Trump's promised border wall, but Mexicans living in the United States might. Trump has been accused of breaking a key campaign promise by asking Congress to fund the wall through the appropriations process. He had vowed to build the "big, beautiful wall" along the U.S.-Mexican border at Mexico's expense and is still suggesting funds appropriated by Congress for the wall will be reimbursed at a later date. It became a call and response during Trump campaign rallies. Supporters would chant "Build the wall!" and the candidate would ask, "Who's going to pay...

    United States President-elect Donald Trump has reportedly taken the first step toward confirming one of the worst fears of undocumented Caribbean and other immigrants who have taken advantage of a programme that grants them temporary stay in the US. According to New York’s Vice News, a US Department of Homeland Security memo states that the president-elect’s team is “poking around the agency” for information about recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, also known as DACA. President Barack Obama started the programme through an executive action in 2012 as a way for undocumented immigrants who meet certain requirements to achieve...

    Yesterday I sat through what could be very generously called a neighborhood meeting near where I live. A new Goodwill Boutique (higher end Goodwill) is set to open in center of town, and a spokesperson was going around promoting it to neighborhood associations. In educating us on what Goodwill does, the spokesperson volunteered that the money generated from sale of donated items drives their job training program. All good, until . . . He then volunteered that of the 5000 trained locally last year and placed in jobs, 1800 were Syrian refugees. Since I'm in the People's Soviet of Washington,...
