    Immigrant families detained in an Oregon prison for illegal entry by the Department of Homeland Security have been given meals that violate their religious beliefs while enduring brutal conditions, according to a court filing. The Associated Press reports that William Teesdale, the chief investigator for the federal public defender’s office in Oregon, wrote in a court filing Friday that more than 100 detainees at a federal prison in Sheridan, Oregon, are subject to strip searches in front of other inmates, overcrowded cells, and poor heating with little clothing to wear. Some of the detainees are from India, Nepal, Guatemala, Mexico...
  • WaPo Basically Admits That Mexico Is A S***Hole Country

    To their credit, the WaPo’s editors begin by admitting that we do, in fact, have a refugee crisis on our hands. They go one step further, admitting that the Obama administration was “flummoxed” by the unending flow of families and unaccompanied children trying to flee Central and South America and enter the United States, particularly in 2014. But they are dismissive of the one solution being put forward by the Trump administration which might actually make a difference. We’ve had a “safe third country” agreement with Canada since 2004. Under that plan, migrants are to apply for asylum in the...
  • Senate to ignore $5 billion border wall plan in the House

    The Washington Examiner ^ | July 20, 2018 | Susan Ferrechio
    The Trump administration this week cheered a new House bill to spend $5 billion on a Southern border wall, but its passage is highly unlikely because Senate Republicans are already prepared to cut that number by more than two-thirds. The fiscal year 2019 House Homeland Security Appropriations spending bill would give a major boost to border wall funding. Beyond the billions of dollars in funding for 200 miles of "new physical barrier construction" along the U.S.-Mexico border, it would also provide funding for improvements aimed at achieving “100 percent scanning” of the border within five years. The measure will soon...

    Full title: ICE Just Arrested Dozens of Illegal Aliens in a Sanctuary City, the Majority Have Serious Criminal Records Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency many Democrats want to abolish, recently conducted a raid in Newark, New Jersey and arrested dozens of illegal aliens. The overwhelming majority have serious criminal records.

The aliens arrested had ICE detainers that were not honored. Newark is a "sanctuary city." "Of those arrested, 16 subjects had...

    We all knew this feigned outrage over separating families had nothing to do with separating families, but with ensuring a steady flow of poor and dangerous elements into our country to be released into our communities and never heard from again. Now we have the proof. After the Trump administration marshalled all its security resources away from our border priorities in order to reunite the families, district Judge Dana Sabraw has now placed a halt on their deportations, even as unified family units... Sabraw, a George W. Bush appointee, is the same judge who legislated from the bench that the...

    Fox News host Tucker Carlson said Monday that Mexico had been more successful than Russia in influencing U.S. elections by "packing" the American electorate with its own people. Carlson said Russia has, in fact, sought to meddle in U.S. affairs. But other countries, like Mexico, had been more successful in doing so, he said. "I don't think Russia is our close friend or anything like that," Carlson said. "I think of course they try to interfere in our affairs. They have for a long time. Many countries do. Some more successfully than Russia, like Mexico, which is routinely interfering in...

    Just how laughably pathetic do the leftwing Democrats who loudly introduced a bill to abolish ICE appear after they now have to backtrack in embarrassment to oppose it since Republicans agreed to bring it to the floor of the House for a vote? So pathetic that even the leftist website Vox is mocking the Democrats for putting themselves in such a bind as to look completely foolish.  This mockery of the 'Abolish ICE' Democrats by Ella Nilson and Tara Golshan appears in the July 13 Vox as Democrats aren’t ready to actually vote for an “Abolish ICE” bill. The subtitle summarizes...

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico’s president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said he would cancel the planned purchase of eight military helicopters from the United States as part of cost-cutting measures.Lopez Obrador, who handily won this month’s presidential election on pledges to fight corruption and cut government waste, said there had been plans to pay 26 billion pesos ($1.36 billion) for the helicopters to be used by Mexico’s navy. “This purchase is going to be canceled because we can not make this expenditure,” Lopez Obrador told reporters on Wednesday after meeting with incoming legislators from his MORENA party. Lopez Obrador is...
  • There will be no more spying on opponents, president-elect declares

    There will be no more internal spying on opposition politicians, incoming president Andrés Manuel López Obrador said on Saturday, recalling that he was tailed for years by federally-employed spies. There will be no more Center for Investigation and National Security (Cisen) either, following its dissolution as part of the new government’s austerity measures. The newly-appointed public security secretary, Alfonso Durazo Montaño, announced the move on Saturday. “Cisen disappears because it has been discredited due to the political use that was made of it,” Durazo said. The incoming secretary said a new organization, the National Intelligence Agency, will replace it. López...

    OWENS CROSS ROADS, Ala. - An Alabama 13-year-old found dead in a wooded area last month was beheaded after she saw two men stab her grandmother to death, an investigator testified Thursday.

Aguilar, 26, and Israel Gonzalez Palomino, 34, are each charged with two counts of capital murder in the deaths of Lopez and her 49-year-old grandmother and legal guardian, Oralia Mendoza.

    KERN COUNTY, Calif. – A convicted child molester was killed by another inmate less than a week after arriving at a California prison, officials said. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said it received Agustin Duran at the Wasco State Prison, about 30 miles northwest of Bakersfield, on July 2. The 66-year-old was sentenced to serve 55 years to life in prison with the possibility of parole after being convicted of lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 years old in Los Angeles County, according to the agency. On July 7, at around 7:20 p.m., 19-year-old Andres...

    “It may be on the lips of many, but that equation is a foolish lie." This is how Pope Francis defined the equation that many make between Muslims and terrorists. He did so in the extensive interview with the director of the Echo of Bergamo newspaper, published today 24 May 2018, on the occasion of the arrival in the city of the urn with the remains of Saint John XXIII, who thus returns for the first time to his land.

    When it comes to supporting families, paid parental leave is a solution to a number of problems. Studies show that paid leave can reduce infant mortality, increase breastfeeding rates, can improve maternal mental health and strengthen the connection between fathers and babies. There are a ton of benefits to parental leave, ones that American families should be seeing, but aren't. While some employers have been modernizing parental leave policies, federal policy lags behind. The last major policy change came in 1993, when the Family and Medical Leave Act passed with bipartisan support, guarantees more than half of American workers 12...

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) held a joint call Tuesday to announce their efforts to comply with a June 26 federal court ruling mandating children under five years old in HHS custody be “reunited” with parents if they were separated at the border. U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw, in response to an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) lawsuit, set a July 10 deadline to reunite the families and refused to provide additional time for the government to use DNA testing to determine if the people in question are even the 102...

    It’s time we all faced a cold reality: no one actually “cares-cares” about those kids separated from their families at the border.  Oh, we all feel the emotions: sickening sadness, sympathy, national embarrassment, frustration, and anger.  Those feelings, however, aren’t really because “kids are kept in cages,” but rather because Trump put kids in cages. Look, the reason we study history is so that we can learn from it.  Our 21st Century history tells us that 99.999% of the American people don’t freak out whenever kids are kept in cages or separated from their parents.   It’s happened for centuries.  Almost...

    Nearly half of voters think President Donald Trump is a racist, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Tuesday. Forty-nine percent of voters said Trump is racist, while 47 percent said he’s not, according to the poll. These numbers are similar to those from a February Quinnipiac poll, where 49 percent of voters said Trump was racist and 46 percent said he was not. Forty-four percent of voters said they think “racist beliefs” were a motive in Trump’s immigration policy, while 50 percent said Trump has “a sincere interest in controlling our borders.” Sixty percent said the policy of separating...
