    “He just wants to expedite the process and better enforce our immigration laws,” Gutierrez said. Ofelia Ramirez, another Trump supporter who attended Sunday’s rally, said she believes Trump can make government work again. “I’m a Latina and I’m for Trump,” she said. “I believe he can effect change in Washington. We need to send a message to government, to D.C., to senators and representatives of the Republican Party that they cannot continue to get the Hispanic vote and the vote of the American people under false pretenses.”

    Sabine Durden had almost lost hope. Her son Dominic, a dispatcher with the Moreno Valley Sheriff's Department, was killed by an illegal immigrant who was an unregistered driver with two previous DUIs. Yet, NOBODY in Washington would listen to her. "A week BEFORE (Donald Trump) announced his candidacy, I was so depressed," Durden told Breitbart. "No one cared about our stories, no one talked about my permanently separated family. I had no more family here, and I contemplated suicide. Donald Trump saved my life." That's why the mother went to last Wednesday's Trump rally in Anaheim, California, with a picture...

    They've tossed the first protester out of the Trump rally in Anaheim. As Trump launched into a speech that would touch on issues such as gun rights and the wall he'd like to build at the U.S./Mexico border, a protester tried to interrupt him. "Get him out of here. Out. Out. Out. Out," Trump, from the podium, told security officials. "Don't hurt him," he added. "I say that for the TV cameras, but don't hurt him." It's unclear what happened to the protester.

And then his cousin Christine Vess tripped and skinned her knee. And that’s how Michael and Christine became the very first official guests in Disneyland 60 years ago this week and unexpectedly received a lifetime of privileges. That’s how they were escorted past 15,000 people, how they met Walt Disney, and how they posed with Disney for a photograph beamed around the world.

    California's measles outbreak has climbed to 91 confirmed cases, prompting a vicious attack from USA Today contributor Alex Berezow against "anti-vaxxers." He blames them for the epidemic that CDC officials say was introduced at the Disneyland theme park by a person infected with measles overseas. Berezow's knee-jerk reaction is to declare, "Parents who do not vaccinate their children should go to jail." He erroneously maintains that measles could not spread in a fully vaccinated society and discredits as "ludicrous" concerns regarding the safety and effectiveness of vaccines. Claiming there is a "mountain of data" proving otherwise, his one and only...

After a long battle, the city was eventually broken into six council wards, and today all are represented by Latinos. Anaheim faces a similar demographic shift now, and many see it at the root of recent angry protests over the fatal police shootings of two Latino men. According to the latest U.S. census, Anaheim is now majority minority. About 52% of the city's 336,000 residents are Latino, but only a handful of Latinos have ever won...

Environmental activists are in Anaheim today, at the National Association of Music Merchants trade show, to do a raising awareness song-and-dance about this. Literally: they've got a musician with them. The guitars are Gibsons, and the law is the Lacey Act. An NPR colleague reported on this issue from Tennessee last year. Gibson is just a flash point: federal law enforcement officials have investigated the company on the suspicion that it broke laws in India and Madagascar. The Lacey Act makes...
