    Pope Francis said Wednesday that fear of migration is “making us crazy” as he began a trip to Central America amid a standoff over President Donald Trump’s promised wall at the U.S.-Mexico border and a new caravan of migrants heading north. Francis was asked by reporters about the proposed border wall Wednesday on the way to Panama, where he is looking to leave the sex abuse scandals buffeting his papacy behind. Francis responded: “It is the fear that makes us crazy.” The Roman Catholic Church’s first Latin American pope and the son of Italian immigrants to Argentina, Francis has made...

    An undocumented immigrant in California was sentenced to 401 years in prison last week after a jury convicted him of multiple violent sex crimes against a family. And the victims are advocating against deportation, fearful he'll just return. Macario Cerda, 39, was sentenced Thursday on three counts of forcible rape against two victims between 2009 and 2013.  He was also convicted of one count of kidnapping to commit rape, one count of criminal threats and seven counts of lewd acts upon a child under the age of 14, according to a press release from the Tulare County District Attorney’s Office. Prosecutors say on...

    Rep. Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) called on his Democratic colleagues to give President Trump the funding for his long-desired border wall between the U.S. and Mexico, saying its construction is inevitable. “Give Trump the money,” Peterson told KFGO’s “News & Views” on Tuesday. “I’d give him the whole thing … and put strings on it so you make sure he puts the wall where it needs to be. Why are we fighting over this? We’re going to build that wall anyway, at some time.” The 15-term congressman said top Democrats look at him “cross-eyed” when he makes this suggestion. The funding...

    A prominent immigrant-rights activist launched a drive Tuesday to rewrite the American Pledge of Allegiance, saying as it stands now it’s a symbol of “rooted in nativism and white supremacy.” Cesar Vargas, a “Dreamer” who came to the country illegally with his mother and now runs the Dream Action Coalition, says the pledge speaks to fear, while he wants to see a version imbued with “optimism.” “The upgraded version should read: “I pledge allegiance and love to our indigenous and immigrant heritage, rooted in the United States of America, to our civil rights for which we strive, one voice, one...

    A federal officer arrested a “human smuggler” following a traffic stop in Summit County over the weekend. The task force officer with Homeland Security pulled over the vehicle after he spotted the driver speeding and driving erratically on eastbound I-80 after 9 p.m. A probable cause statement filed in a Summit County court indicates that during Saturday night’s stop, the officer noticed eight male passengers who “looked like they were attempting to hide.” When asked for identification, the driver provided the officer with a fake ID. But, after checking a federal criminal database, it revealed the driver as 33-year-old Rolando...

    Police in Nevada announced on Sunday that a suspect in four mid-January homicides had been taken into custody. Nineteen-year-old Wilbur Ernesto Martinez-Guzman was arrested in Carson City last Saturday on an immigration charge. Washoe County Sheriff Darin Balaam said on Sunday that authorities “feel confident” they have “evidence that will link him to all four homicides.” Martinez-Guzman has been charged with burglary, possession of stolen property, and obtaining money by false pretenses. He remains on an immigration hold, according to police. The suspect was arrested after authorities determined he “was likely in the United States illegally and was detainable,” Carson...

    My kid is an immigrant and came to America legally. I look with awe and wonder at him, remembering how his only wish was to come to America and have a family. It peeves me that illegal aliens are allowed to not only jump in line ahead of him like the schoolyard bully, but even reap benefits that he could not get (while he was waiting for his citizenship my son could not legally attend school for credit though illegals usually can). Angel Families surely feel what I feel, though much more magnified. Their pain is our pain and we...

    With no end in sight to either the government shutdown or the national security crisis at the southern border, Democrats continue to put their own political agendas over what’s best for America by refusing to negotiate with President Trump.By the time that Trump took to the podium on Saturday afternoon to propose a deal that would put federal workers back on the job and get the paychecks restarted for those affected and their families, power-drunk Nancy Pelosi had already turned down the opportunity to negotiate an end to the impasse.Scroll down to Video.Our border is not a political football Nancy....Americans...

    You'll hear Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) rejecting President Trump's border security proposals these days, but about a decade ago, she was singing a different tune.During her 2008 campaign for Congress, Gillibrand bragged in a mailer how she had called for the deportations of illegal immigrants. The ad also highlighted her opposition to illegals getting drivers licenses, a boost in the number of border agents, fines on companies who hired illegal immigrants, expanding the E-Verify programs for employers, and other now-unheard-of policy stances from a Democrat. Here's the mailer @jaketapper cited, from my story on Thursday.— andrew kaczynski (@KFILE)...

"We feel confident we have evidence that will link him to all four homicides," Balaam said. "The information we have now indicates there are no outstanding suspects." Martinez-Guzman "was likely in the United States illegally and was detainable," immigration officers verified Saturday afternoon, said Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong. The first of the four victims, 56-year-old Connie...

    LUKEVILLE, Ariz. - They crossed just before dawn. And there was little to stop them. At around 5 a.m. last Monday, a group of 84 migrants hurried off a large tour bus on a Mexican highway, crawled under a small fence and walked into the United States. Customs and Border Protection videotaped the migrants, all families from Central America, crossing the border in Quitobaquito Springs in Arizona’s Organ Pipe Cactus National Park, a four-hour drive from Tucson. Border agents used a mobile surveillance capability truck to capture images of the crossing. Fernando Grijalva, CBP’s patrol agent in charge of the...

    RALEIGH, N.C. - Hyo Suk George lived legally in the United States for nearly 20 years before she voted in her first election, coaxed to cast her ballot by an enthusiastic town council member at church. To register, she presented a green card, Social Security number and driver's license - proof enough for the elections officials in Columbus County - then voted in 2008, 2010 and 2016. But on Thursday, George, 70, faced charges of illegal voting from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, for which she might have spent six months in prison. Instead, U.S. District Court Judge Terrence...

Pinsker (JD, LLM) - author, national security expert, criminal defense attorney, US Army Reserve officer, and homeland security professor at Virginia Commonwealth University - is in a unique position to provide valuable insight on how desperately the United States needs a physical barrier on its southern border. During his service as a federal special prosecutor (SAUSA) on the border prosecuting thousands of cases involving illegal immigration and cartel activity, Pinsker has witnessed far more than your average journalist clamoring for a border photo-op (looking at you, Jim Acosta), and was happy to answer a few questions for our...

    A federal judge on Friday reportedly found four women guilty of misdemeanors after they illegally entered a national wildlife refuge along the US-Mexico border to leave water and food for undocumented migrants. According to The Arizona Republic, the four women were aid volunteers for No More Deaths, an advocacy group dedicated to ending the deaths of undocumented immigrants crossing desert regions near the southern border. One of the volunteers with the group, Natalie Hoffman, was found guilty of three charges against her, including operating a vehicle inside the Cabeza Prieta national wildlife refuge, entering a federally-protected wilderness area without a...
