    Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio turned up the heat on his opponents -- proactively calling them out by name -- while campaigning in South Carolina on Thursday. Rubio touted his international affairs record on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, while taking aim at the experience of Ohio Governor John Kasich, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush and the GOP frontrunner, Donald Trump -- all of whom won more votes than him in Tuesday's New Hampshire primary. "We'll have a debate on Saturday. Who on that stage has more experience or has shown better judgment or a better understanding of the foreign...

    Pro-Israel demonstrators in Los Angeles were violently targeted by several men waving Palestinian flags on Sunday afternoon, prompting a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) officer at the scene to fire his weapon at the attackers as they assaulted participants, according to DHS officials and eyewitness accounts from private security officials at the rally. The incident took place Sunday afternoon while a group of pro-Israel supporters were peacefully rallying in support of the Jewish state as it defends itself from attacks by the terror group Hamas. The peaceful pro-Israel rally, organized by the Israel-American Council (IAC), took a violent turn at...

    Pro-amnesty activists beat drums and danced in full Aztec regalia, chanting, "White supremacists out, white supremacists out!" at a counter-demonstration at the Murrieta Border Patrol station Friday. Anti-illegal immigration protestors shouted "stop illegal immigration" right next to the dancing demonstrators one the north end of the roadblocks. At the south end, the crowd was largely made up of the anti-illegal immigration protestors, who assembled peacefully.

    [Try not to Laugh] LOS ANGELES—When Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa gavels the 2012 Democratic National Convention into session in Charlotte, N.C., this September, his role as prominent cheerleader for President Barack Obama will be clear. It is less clear, for now, if Villaraigosa has designs on the ultimate convention role in 2016—taking center stage to accept his party's nomination on the final night. Despite running the country's second largest city and coming from the fastest growing voting demographic in America, the mayor himself is quick to wave off talk of a presidential run...

    The U.S. Supreme Court is getting ready to rule on Arizona's controversial immigration law and a lot of people in that state are watching closely. Tonight, nearly two dozen Spanish language radio and TV stations in Arizona are scheduled to run the same program about the immigration law. As NPR's Mandalit del Barco reports, they're walking a fine line between journalism and advocacy. The show looks at the history of anti-immigration laws and their impact on families. Journalists from the regular news programs interview a civil rights lawyer and Latino Arizonans... BARCO: The hatred and terror against us is increasing,...

    A major Latino organization that canceled its planned 2009 convention in Kansas City because of a controversial appointment by former Mayor Mark Funkhouser will likely bring its 10,000-delegate event here in 2015. **SNIP** Convention officials were excited about La Raza’s reconsideration of Kansas City. “After a false start in 2009, I think it’s great to see we’ve attracted the attention of La Raza,” said Rick Hughes, president of the Convention and Visitors Association. “It’s great their giving us a second chance.”

    Campaign 2012: By choosing to head his policy council with an open-borders advocate and former leader of the Hispanic activist group favoring amnesty, the president has signaled a divide-and-conquer re-election campaign . In another move aimed at aiding his re-election, President Obama on Tuesday announced that Cecilia Munoz, a former senior vice president of the National Council of La Raza (NCLR), would replace Melody Barnes as head of his Domestic Policy Council. Hispanics are a key part of the coalition Obama and a key part of his re-election strategy will no doubt be to portray Republicans and others who advocate...

    A large percentage of students enrolled in the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD), just as in much of Arizona’s public school systems are the children of immigrants, both legal and illegal. One of the courses those children are being taught is so-called Raza studies or Mexican-American studies. Raza studies (race studies) have been taught in the TUSD for about a dozen years. One of the textbooks they use is titled “Occupied America,” which was written by Rodolfo Acuńa and includes a speech given by activist and university professor Jose Angel Gutierrez in which he says: “We have got to eliminate...

    The influential Mexican La Raza group that’s received millions of federal tax dollars to promote its leftist, open-borders agenda has added several new branches to its growing network of community organizations dedicated to serving Latinos. Among them is yet another public “charter” school that pushes a radical Chicano movement, known as “reconquista,” with a custom-designed curriculum financed by U.S. taxpayers. The plan is to conquer the American southwest, return it to Mexico and perform ethnic cleansing of Americans, Europeans, Africans and Asians. The politically-connected, Washington D.C. group National Council of La Raza (NCLR) has helped further this agenda by expanding...

    13-year-old Cody Alicea rides with an American flag on the back of his bike. He says he does this to be patriotic and to honor veterans, like his own grandfather, Robert. He's had the flag on his bike for two months but Monday, was asked told to take it down. A school official at Denair Middle School told Cody some students had been complaining about the flag and it was no longer allowed on school property. "In this country we're supposed to be free," said Cody. "And I should be able to wave my flag wherever I want to. And...

    I began the week, along with many of you, urging acting governor Abel Maldonado to file the State’s appeal in the federal case involving Proposition 8. I end the week as his opponent and a candidate for the office of Lieutenant Governor. To some this may seem extreme or be dismissed as a publicity stunt. It is neither. It is the proper response when we find the two front runners for the office of Lieutenant Governor do not share our principles, our values or our respect for the legal system. The democratic nominee and mayor of San Francisco is the...

    The federal government is now telling American citizens to stay out of three southern Arizona counties. It is too dangerous because of armed smugglers from Mexico. Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu: Quite frankly I’m telling you as a sheriff that we don’t control that part of the county. My county is larger than the state of Connecticut and we need support from the federal government. It’s their job to secure the border and they haven’t done it. In fact President Obama suspended the construction of the fence. Sheriff Paul Babeu: Even with that, you say one thing and then you’re...

    San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom says the Board of Supervisors’ recent change to the city’s sanctuary laws is a violation of federal law and he will ignore it. The Board of Supervisors voted 8-to-2 yesterday to overturn a policy enacted last summer by Mayor Gavin Newsom that rolled back the city’s sanctuary policy as it relates to contacting immigration authorities when a juvenile is arrested on felony charges. The new rule would require the city to contact immigration authorities only after a juvenile has been convicted of a felony. In City Hall, it’s been cast as a bit of political...
