    HOUSTON, Texas -- On Sunday a 33-year-old Mexican national was busted by Border Patrol agents for having large amounts of methamphetamine and heroin hidden inside her vehicle. According to U.S. Customs and Border Patrol (CBP), the suspect, a female, ignored an agent when he asked her to roll her window down for questioning at the Pine Valley Checkpoint near San Diego. The woman's behavior caused her to be referred to an inspection area, where drug-sniffing dogs found 39 bundles of meth and heroin. The recovered drugs had a street value of more than $500,000. In total, the drugs weighed about...

    (08-26) 15:29 PDT SACRAMENTO -- Mexican President Enrique Peńa Nieto praised Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday for promoting a "new vision" for two neighbors linked by history and by millions of citizens with shared roots. "The government of Mexico has so much respect for what the governor of California has done," particularly with regard to immigration issues, Peńa Nieto said, toasting Brown to the cries of "Viva Mexico!" during a luncheon with state legislators. The Mexican president, in what appeared to be a veiled swipe at governors of some other states, said California's stance on immigration has made such a...

    On Monday evening, California Governor Jerry Brown said all Mexicans, including illegal immigrants, are welcome in California. According to the Los Angeles Times, while introducing Mexican President Enrique Peńa Nieto, who said America is "the other Mexico," Brown "spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California." He "nodded to the immigrants in the room, saying it didn't matter if they had permission to be in the United States." "You're all welcome in California," Brown reportedly said. Brown has made California a sanctuary state by signing the Trust Act, giving driver's licenses to illegal immigrants. He has also expanded financial...

    Sheriff Joe Arpaio sent out this bitter attack on Barack Obama this morning. Arpaio accuses Barack Obama of leading an attack on the United States. The popular sheriff says President Obama is “rewarding criminals.” Our country is under attack. And Barack Obama is the aggressor. That’s right. Our own President has overseen the release of thousands of illegal immigrants…hundreds of whom are convicted criminals – even felons, which are flooding into America. Every day you read the newspaper or turn on the news, there is something tragic happening, something Obama says is beyond our control. But I must tell you:...

Rand Paul (R-KY) strongly criticized President Obama's immigration policy in a closed-door Wednesday meeting with Guatemalan President Otto Perez Molina. “I told him, frankly, that I didn’t think the problem was in Guatemala City but that the problem was in the White House in our country, and that the mess we’ve got at the border is frankly because of the White House’s policies,” Paul said in an interview. The meeting, he explained, was primarily about the humanitarian mission for which Paul—an ophthalmologist before...

Bryant, the gregarious judge overseeing 38 juvenile cases in Arlington, Va., Immigration Court on a Tuesday morning, commends Christian for his “perfect English.” Christian, a good-looking youth who flashes a sure smile, keeps his hair gelled into a Mohawk and wears a button-up shirt and slacks fastened by a gray Nike belt, tells Bryant he will begin high school in a few weeks. At this first immigration hearing for Christian —...

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) believes the jihadist group the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS or ISIL) may have already sent militants across the U.S.-Mexican border. Perry was directly asked about this prospect Thursday afternoon after he gave a border-security speech at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank. Perry, a potential 2016 presidential candidate who spent much of the speech castigating ISIS after the group brutally executed an American journalist earlier this week, said there was "a very real" risk they were already inside the U.S. "There’s the obvious great concern that because of the condition of...

    Whether or not St. Louis will play host to migrant children who are part of the Central American border surge is still unclear. In the meantime, community members are praying. Nearly 70 people gathered at Tower Grove Park for a prayer vigil for migrant children. The vigil was hosted by a coalition of organizations that, along with St. Louis and St. Louis County, applied for federal grants to help house undocumented youth from Central America. Javier Orozco is the executive director for intercultural and interreligious affairs at the Archdiocese of St. Louis, which co-hosted the event. He says several St....

    President Barack Obama is considering key changes in the nation's immigration system requested by tech, industry and powerful interest groups, in a move that could blunt Republicans' election-year criticism of the president's go-it-alone approach to immigration. Administration officials and advocates said the steps would go beyond the expected relief from deportations for some immigrants in the U.S. illegally that Obama signaled he'd adopt after immigration efforts in Congress collapsed. Following a bevy of recent White House meetings, top officials have compiled specific recommendations from business groups and other advocates whose support could undercut GOP claims that Obama is exceeding his...

    State Attorney General Kamala Harris is asking private law firms to provide free legal help to the wave of Central American children pouring into the state. Harris has called for a sit-down Wednesday in her San Francisco office with attorneys from a dozen firms, as well as with representatives of nonprofits, legal-aid groups and charities. The attorney general's office itself is legally barred from representing the youngsters, so Harris is using her "convening power" to pull together private help. The exact number of unaccompanied children showing up at the California border is hard to come by, but we're told that...

Almost all of those children — 98 percent — caught and processed by U.S. Border Patrol this fiscal year came from Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador or Mexico. But kids coming from Central America aren't the only ones trying to slip across the border. According to data obtained by Fusion from U.S. Customs and Border Protection, border agents have caught unaccompanied children arriving from as far away as China, India, Albania and Morocco. More than two-thirds of these kids caught and processed by U.S....

Republicans blocked immigration reform: that much is obvious to voters, particularly Latino voters, like those in my own family. Voters also know, however, that President Obama is actually responsible for a record 2 million deportations, even though Democrats are running a pro-immigrant platform.

Yoho’s proposal also ensures the states flexibility to ensure the federal government doesn’t sue them over their handling of illegal immigration. “The Obama administration has failed to achieve operational control of our southern border while simultaneously enticing individuals to make the dangerous journey to America,” Yoho said on Tuesday, before taking aim at U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder for suing...

    One reason predictions of a Mitt Romney victory in 2012 were inaccurate, say analysts, is that the turnout among certain Democrat constituencies — in particular blacks and Hispanics -- was greater than expected. And what a significant factor this is! Whether we call it getting out the vote, having a great “ground game” or just turnout, it can make or break an election. But while the phrase “getting out the vote” is well understood, there is a lesser known election strategy: getting in the vote. What’s the difference?

    Much to the surprise of those who understand the decline of journalism in our country, in a discussion of how the recent House votes on handling illegal aliens would impact Republican electoral chances, the New York Times actually told the truth. After explaining how the Hispanic vote is distributed in such a way that it will have no influence on any of this year’s contested U.S. Senate races except possibly in Colorado, the Times observed that “Hispanic voters will have even less influence over the composition of the House, which is all but assured to remain in Republican hands.

    CBS News ^ | August 7, 2014 | By Sarah Dutton, et al
    When asked what should happen to the Central American children who have recently crossed the border into the U.S. illegally, 50 percent of Americans say they should be returned to their home country as soon as possible, while 43 percent think these children should stay in the U.S. while awaiting an immigration hearing, according to a new CBS News poll. Two-thirds of Americans support legislation that would make it easier and faster to send these children back to their home countries. Support for this measure reaches 80 percent among Republicans, although majorities across the political spectrum support this, as do...

    Characteristically excellent work by John Sexton in tracing the timeline on when, and why, kids from Central America started streaming north. Democrats are in a weird position on this point. On the one hand, they insist endlessly to American audiences that Obama’s 2012 amnesty for DREAMers (a.k.a. DACA) had nothing to do with drawing illegals here. That’s crackpot nonsense, the sort of stuff you’ll find (gasp) Ted Cruz pushing. On the other hand, the White House is quietly putting the word out in Central America that whatever they’ve heard about the U.S. handing out “permisos” to young illegals lately...

  • Timeline: Border Surge Began a Few Months After Obama's First Executive Action on Immigration

    breitbart ^ | 8/5/14 | John Sexton
    President Obama's executive actions on immigration did not begin with Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) in mid-2012. It began in 2011 with his announcement of "prosecutorial discretion" on deportations. A few months later the border patrol noted the first uptick in unaccompanied children at the border. There has been an ongoing argument in the public sphere over whether or not President Obama's executive action known as DACA is responsible for the current surge of unaccompanied children at the border. GOP members have claimed it is a contributing factor and some note that the June 15, 2012 announcement seems to...

    HOUSTON, Texas -- Several unaccompanied minors who entered the U.S. illegally have been relocated to and released where many U.S. citizens cannot afford to bring their own families on vacation: the Virgin Islands.
