    Ohio faith leaders and members of the immigrant community rallied Thursday evening at The Square @ Union Centre to call on House Speaker John Boehner to “Do the Right Thing” on immigration reform. “Every day that he’s waiting … every day that immigration’s not passed, more families are separated,” Fabiola Arce of the Intercommunity Justice & Peace Center told the crowd. “The children are put into foster care and I just don’t understand how they can break up families like that when they have hard-working parents here.” Arce, a Xavier University graduate and teacher at DePaul Cristo Rey High School...

    A federal judge in Oregon has found that an immigrant woman's constitutional rights were violated when she was held in jail without probable cause at the request of U.S. immigration authorities, one of several recent federal court decisions to scrutinize the practice of keeping people in jail after they're eligible for release so that they can be considered for deportation. The rulings make it clear that local officials are not required to honor immigration authorities' requests that someone in custody continue to be held even though their original charges were resolved or they are eligible for bail, and that local...

    Partisan bickering over immigration reform legislation intensified on Wednesday as President Barack Obama and House of Representatives Republicans accused each other of standing in the way of progress one year after bipartisan Senate legislation was introduced. "I urge House Republicans to listen to the will of the American people and bring immigration reform to the House floor for a vote," Obama said. Obama has warned that a failure by Congress to pass legislation could prompt him to look for ways to use his executive powers to make some limited advances on U.S. immigration policy.

In return for testifying against his former boss, Peter Chong, Shrimp Boy was released in 2003 after only seven years.

There can be no disputing that such a barrier would explicitly target a protected ethnic minority.

In a memo released Friday, Border Patrol Chief Michael Fisher directed border agents not to step in front of moving vehicles, nor to use their bodies to block them, in order to open fire at drivers. He also barred shooting at vehicles whose occupants are fleeing from agents. A deadly threat, which would justify use of force, does not “include a moving vehicle merely...

Swiss voters on Sunday narrowly backed an initiative "against mass immigration," following a successful campaign by the populist right-wing Swiss People's Party, which blamed an influx of foreigners for higher crime, rising rents and congested streets.

    by John UrbanTop Right News Rep. Steve King (R-IA) was right: illegal alien minors have, in fact, been used to smuggle large volumes of illicit drugs into the United States of America on behalf of Mexican drug cartels. Journalist Lorne Matalon reported for Fronteras in mid-December 2013 that U.S. authorities arrested six Mexican nationals--including four minors--attempting to carry marijuana across the border. “U.S. Border Patrol agents have arrested six Mexicans with more than 300 pounds of marijuana,” Matalon wrote on Dec. 10, 2013. “Four of the six were juveniles including two 17-year-olds, a 16-year-old and a 12-year-old boy. The arrests took place...

    Action movie star Steven Seagal as Arizona governor? Um, no. Despite how a question by a Phoenix reporter has been hyped by the national media, Seagal says he “would remotely consider” it, but has “a lot more other responsibilities that may be more important to address.” But Seagal did strongly defend Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio against absurd leftist charges of "racism", and said the top issue facing the U.S. now is our wide open border.The 61-year-old actor made the comments while promoting the latest season of his reality show Steven Seagal—Lawman: Maricopa County. In the show, Seagal joins forces with Arpaio...

    (Reuters) - The California Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that an undocumented Mexican immigrant should be licensed to practice law in a closely watched case on immigration rights. The unanimous ruling in favor of Sergio Garcia came after California legislators passed a bill last year that specifically authorized the high court to allow qualified applicants into the state bar, regardless of their immigration status. The U.S. Department of Justice had opposed Garcia's application, while California Attorney General Kamala Harris supported it. Neither office could immediately comment on Thursday.

    Immigration: The Border Patrol and other agencies report a "surge" of unaccompanied minors coming across our border. It coincides with the White House's de facto amnesty via the Dream Act to reward such lawbreaking. The Office of Refugee Resettlement noted a "surge" in unaccompanied alien children in its year-end report last week, pointing out that 24,668 foreign minors in the country illegally were placed in the care of a federal de facto baby-sitting service because no parents were around to care for them. Last year's number was a near doubling from 2012, and nearly quadruple what it was at the...

    Border: A federal judge finds that the Department of Homeland Security, instead of arresting cartel members and the clients who pay them to smuggle children into the U.S., helps the drug lords complete the transactions. Former DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano once proclaimed the U.S. border to be as secure as it has ever been. Yet her department has been found by Judge Andrew S. Hanen of the U.S. District Court of the Southern District of Texas to have actively undermined that security by enabling drug cartels engaged in the lucrative smuggling of children. The case before Judge Hanen — United...
