    Full title: Illegal Alien Who Butchered Conn. Woman Not Deported After Serving 15 Yrs. for Murder Because Haiti Refused to Repatriate An illegal immigrant who stabbed a young Connecticut woman to death after completing a 15-year sentence for murder couldn’t be deported by the U.S. government because his homeland, which receives billions in aid from Uncle Sam, wouldn’t take him back—three times! So federal authorities released the violent criminal, a Haitian national, and didn’t even bother tracking his whereabouts allowing him to commit yet another heinous crime. Now, a year after an innocent woman was viciously butchered to death in...

    "Earthquake Amnesty in Works for Illegal Aliens from Ecuador, DHS Quietly Grants “Migratory Relief” in Spanish" Word of a special earthquake amnesty for Ecuadorean nationals living in the United States illegally is spreading like wildfire in Spanish media reports published throughout Latin America recently. A catastrophic, magnitude 7.8 temblor struck the ailing South American nation’s pacific coast on April 16, killing hundreds and injuring thousands. Undoubtedly, it’s been devastating and worthy of the tremendous humanitarian aid being provided by the U.S. government as well as a multitude of charities. However, the Ecuadorean nationals who stand to benefit from yet another...

    This week the New York Post [1] reported that Department of Homeland Security Deputy Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has emerged as a leading contender for the top spot at DOJ. The race to replace outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder has included the controversial Labor Secretary Tom Perez, and like Perez, MayorkasÂ’ tenure in the federal government is filled with a considerable amount of ethics-defying shadiness.Prior to taking his current position as the number two man at DHS, Mayorkas was head of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), which is mandated to administer the biggest immigration system in the world...

    Two lawmakers say the U.S. Secret Service may be running out of agents and could need to use outside help, according to the Washington Examiner. "USSS simply cannot hire enough personnel to keep pace with historic attrition rates," House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz and ranking Democrat Elijah Cummings of Maryland said Tuesday in a letter to Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy. The letter, which comes after a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) probe that questioned the agency's "ability to protect the White House and its occupants," called on the U.S. Secret Service to find ways to...

The latest documents, obtained by Judicial Watch and released on Tuesday, appear to confirm these initial reports. They further disclose that at...

A Republican congressman claimed Tuesday that “at least 10″ Islamic State “fighters” have been caught trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border into Texas, though an administration official denied it.Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., said he learned the information from the Border Patrol, warning that the alleged attempts to cross into the U.S. raise serious security concerns.Hunter continued: “I know that at least 10 ISIS fighters...

Mr. Johnson has little experience with some of the issues Janet Napolitano faced, like border security, immigration and cybersecurity. During his tenure at the Defense Department, he spearheaded the end of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law that had barred gays and lesbians from serving openly in the military.

    Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said today the FBI is seeking to locate people in video from the marathon, but she added she isn’t calling them suspects. Without providing details of what the video shows, Napolitano told the House Homeland Security Committee that “there is some video that raised the question” of individuals the FBI would like to interview. "We have been collecting video from a variety of sources, as you might imagine, at the finish line of the Boston Marathon,” Napolitano said. “There’s lots and lots of video. There is some video that has raised the question of those...

    Barack Obama's administration has cut the budget nearly in half for preventing domestic bombings, MailOnline can reveal. Under President George W. Bush, the Department of Homeland Security had $20 million allocated for preventing the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by terrorists working inside the United States. The current White House has cut that funding down to $11 million. That assessment comes from Robert Liscouski, a former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15 that killed three Americans and injured at least 173 others.

    The Department of Homeland Security has not issued a terror alert in response to Monday's bombings in Boston. On the Department of Homeland Security’s National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) website, the administration says: “There are no current alerts.” According to a source with knowledge of these matters, a terror alert "gives authority for full mobilization of law enforcement resources to feds, state and locals.” The source told Breitbart News that the administration is supposed to issue such an alert out of the National Counterterrorism Center, via NTAS, but no such alert has been issued after the bombings in Massachusetts. Describing...

    The Homeland Security Department expects applications for high-skilled immigration visas to outpace the available supply in a matter of days, one of the fastest runs on the much-sought-after work permits in years and a sign of continued economic recovery amid new hiring by U.S. technology companies. The urgent race for such visas -- highly desired by Microsoft, Apple, Google and other leading technology companies -- coincides with congressional plans to increase the number available to tech-savvy foreigners. The race to secure one of the 85,000 so-called H-1B visas available for the 2014 budget year started Monday and requests will be...

    The nationwide shortage of ammunition has left many police departments scrambling to get their hands on the necessary rounds - with some even bartering among each other. Meanwhile, Rep. Timothy Huelskamp (R-Kansas) says the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has failed to respond to multiple members of Congress asking why DHS bought more than 1.6 billion rounds in the past year. Police Chief Cameron Arthur of Jenks, Oklahoma says, "Ammunition and assault weapons in general have skyrocketed...In addition to the fact, not only is it a lot more expensive, but the time to get it could be six months to...

Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) confronted the president over the administration’s refusal for two years to show congressional intelligence committees Justice Department Office of Legal...
