  • Taking on the system: ‘Dreamers’ are getting law degrees

    05/24/2018 6:52:20 AM PDT · by Behind Liberal Lines · 37 replies
    Denia Perez’s parents brought her from Mexico to the United States illegally when she was 11. Last month, she became among the first of the so-called “Dreamers” to earn a law degree. And now, she and others are using their lawyerly know-how to take on the system so they can legally practice. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which allows young immigrants who entered the U.S. before 2007 and before their 16th birthday to go to school under temporary renewable work permits, became law in 2012. That means the first beneficiaries have now had just enough time to graduate...

    LOS ANGELES - Leaders of the notorious Mexican Mafia were charged Wednesday with running a conspiracy to control drug trafficking and carry out violence ordered from inside Los Angeles County jails. The U.S. attorney's office charged 83 people tied to racketeering conspiracies that alleged they ran drugs and carried out violent assaults and even murders. "These cases have delivered a major blow to the Mexican Mafia and leaders of many of the street gangs under the control of the organization," U.S. Attorney Nick Hanna said. "By taking out the gang members who control the jails, and by disrupting their communications...
  • MS-13 gang member nicknamed ‘Animal’ sentenced to 40 years

    An MS-13 member who goes by the gang name “Animal” received a 40-year prison sentence this week for a conspiracy that included the murder of a 15-year-old boy, the U.S. attorney’s office in Massachusetts said Tuesday. The nickname, which the prosecutors highlighted in the headline of a press release, is particularly telling, coming just a week after President Trump called members of the violent, immigrant-fueled MS-13 gang “animals.” Joel Martinez, 23, admitted he murdered the 15-year-old as part of his initiation as a “homeboy” in Mara Salvatrucha, the gang’s full name. “I stabbed the culero three times,” Mr. Martinez said,...

    WHAT: The violent animals of MS-13 have committed heinous, violent attacks in communities across America. Too many innocent Americans have fallen victim to the unthinkable violence of MS-13’s animals. At the State of the Union in January 2018, President Trump brought as his guests Elizabeth Alvarado, Robert Mickens, Evelyn Rodriguez, and Freddy Cuevas, the parents of Nisa Mickens and Kayla Cuevas. Police believe these young girls were chased down and brutally murdered by MS-13 gang members on Long Island, New York, in 2016. Suffolk County Police Commissioner stated that the “murders show a level of brutality that is close to...

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer railed against President Trump’s harsh rhetoric towards violent street gang MS-13 Wednesday; taking the President’s comments out of context and equating violent offenders to “our great grandparents.” The President was responding to a California lawmaker’s complaint that local officials were unable to notify ICE officials of MS-13 gang members detained in county jails; saying federal authorities were working to bypass the “ridiculous” sanctuary city policies and deport “animal” criminals from the United States. Schumer slammed the President’s harsh rhetoric on social media within hours, saying “When all of our great-great-grandparents came to America they weren’t...

    This week the national media performed a real service for the first time in recent memory. They are so comfortable distorting President Trump’s words to horrify the masses that they got careless and exposed themselves on a whole new level. California law enforcement and elected officials met with President Trump at the White House on Wednesday to discuss the impact of the “sanctuary state” policies there. A heavy theme throughout the meeting was the crime committed by illegal immigrants as evidenced by Kate Steinle’s murder in 2015. Her killer had already been deported five times when he fatally shot Steinle,...

    Several news organizations took remarks President Donald Trump made Wednesday out of context to suggest he was referring to undocumented immigrants at large as "animals," when in context it appears the President was likely referring to members of a violent gang. The comment in question happened at a White House roundtable discussion on the subject of immigration and so-called "sanctuary cities." Complaining at the roundtable about confusion between different levels of law enforcement, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims brought up the violent gang Mara Salvatrucha, better known as MS-13. "There could be an MS-13 member I know about -- if...

    “If the media and liberals want to defend MS-13, they’re more than welcome to,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters during Thursday’s briefing after media attempts to frame President Trump’s comments from the previous day as insulting to “some immigrants.” “I don’t think the term that the president used was strong enough,” she said. One reporter had asked Sanders about the president’s use of the word “animals” to describe members of the vicious MS-13 transnational gang but, instead, framed the question by saying Trump used the term to describe “some immigrants.” Sanders sharply corrected him by saying, “The...

    Democrats, the mainstream media, and left-wing reporters are twisting President Trump’s words in calling MS-13 illegal alien gang members “animals.” During a roundtable discussion of California’s sanctuary state laws, Fresno Sheriff Margaret Mims mentioned to Trump the difficulty of working with the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency to notify them of an illegal alien MS-13 gang member. In response, Trump called the MS-13 gang members “animals,” as he’s done in the past MIMS: There could be an MS-13 gang member, I know about, if they don’t reach a threshold, I cannot tell ICE about them. [Emphasis added] TRUMP: We...

    A pack of seven dogs with legs shorter than an adult hand attacked an Oklahoma woman, inflicting injuries so severe she later died. ARDMORE, OK — A pack of vicious dogs, some of them described as predominantly dachshunds, or wiener dogs, mauled an Oklahoma woman to death last week. It's unclear what caused the dogs to attack Tracy Garcia, 52, outside her home near Ardmore on Thursday, but their owner could face charges, according to media reports. One of the dogs was shot after charging at a Carter County deputy who responded to the attack, and the other six were...

  • Goat Spends Years Evading Police Around Kentucky Highway

    A goat that has been evading Kentucky police for years has become like a "pet" to area construction workers, one worker said. Police in Hardin County said the goat was dubbed "Houdini" by locals because it always manages to escape before officers can show up to capture it. The goat is most frequently seen around Interstate 65, and witnesses said he's been on the loose for years. "We would call animal control and state police, and every time they'd come to get him, he's gone," construction worker Peggy Gross told WAVE-TV. "Houdini -- the I-65 Goat. He's our pet out...

A related “monkey fever” meanwhile raging in parts of India has recently jumped into new and very different habitat, also showing potential to spread far and wide. At issue is simian susceptibility to Flaviviridae viruses, carried by mosquitoes and ticks. Killing upward of 5,000 people per year, worldwide, flaviviruses are as deadly to South American...

(Photo by Thomas Sattler) ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Flitting swiftly through the darkness above the tropical forest canopy in Central and South America, a group of cute little bats with dog-like faces have long been hiding a big secret. Now, their secret is out. For more than 50 years, scientists believed that only six species of the fast flying, insect-eating mammals known as dog-faced bats existed. That number has now increased to eight with the discovery of two new species, the Freeman’s dog-faced bat (Cynomops freemani), collected...

    Disturbing video footage of dogs being butchered and their hair burnt off with blowtorches at markets in Indonesia has prompted howls of protest from animal rights activists. Campaigners from the Dog Meat-Free Indonesia group are urging authorities to shut down the country's live animal markets, where they say thousands of dogs and cats are bludgeoned to death each week. Video filmed by the activists at markets in Tomohon and Langowan cities on Sulawesi island shows a stomach-churning array of burnt, mutilated animals - including monkeys, cats and bats - being sold openly.

Goldstein told the paper she believes the beagle, which had no collar or form of identification, is between 1 and 2 years old. She and her neighbor put an online advertisement in an effort to locate the...
