    Before progressive darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) officially endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for president on Saturday, the duo sat down with The Intercept to discuss the need for a progressive grassroots movement in America. According to Sanders, Ocasio-Cortez is one of the most influential people in Congress and she has made great strides over the last year. "It's hard to believe that a year ago today you were waiting tables, is that correct?" Sanders asked AOC. "I cannot recall any political in modern history of this country who, in the course of one year – and she's the youngest woman...

    Republican Whittney Williams, a President Trump supporter who used to live in the U.S. illegally, on Monday announced that she would be launching a campaign to challenge Michigan Rep. Haley Stevens (D) for the 11th District seat Stevens flipped blue during the 2018 midterms. Williams, 37, said in an announcement video that she was brought to the United States at the age of 10 from Taiwan “without knowing a word of English.” “My family overstayed their visas and, as a result, I spent the next 16 years living in the shadows as an illegal immigrant,” Williams said. Williams, the director...

    DENVER, May 3 (Reuters) - A Texas truck driver who police say caused a fiery multi-vehicle crash near Denver last week that killed four people and injured four was charged on Friday with 40 criminal counts including vehicular manslaughter, prosecutors said. Police in Lakewood, Colorado said they arrested 23-year-old Rogel Lazaro Aguilera-Mederos after he lost control of his tractor-trailer truck during the evening rush hour on April 25 and caused a crash on Interstate 70 that involved at least 28 vehicles.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Saturday she will not take up President Trump’s offer to trade off $5.7 billion in wall funding for a three-year extension of a program providing legal status for "Dreamers," who illegally went to the U.S. as children. Pelosi, D-Calif., issued a statement just before Trump’s announcement, calling the plan “a compilation of several previously rejected initiatives, each of which is unacceptable and in total, do not represent a good faith effort to restore certainty to people’s lives.” Pelosi said the proposal does not achieve what Democrats have long sought for the "Dreamers," which is a...

    A York County-based fishing boat – the Captain Billy Haver – was 55 miles off the coast of Massachusetts a few weeks ago, dredging scallops from the sea. Then, seemingly out of the blue, a crew member started attacking his shipmates with a hammer. The vessel’s captain radioed the Coast Guard for help at 2 p.m. on an international emergency distress channel. “Mayday, mayday, mayday,” he said in a thick accent. “Can anybody hear me?” “We have a man gone crazy here on the boat, man,” the captain continued after hearing a reply. “One man, I don’t know if he’s...

    Washington (CNN) - Sen. John McCain said Saturday that he supports an effort in the House of Representatives to force a vote on an immigration bill.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers, including Republican Reps. Will Hurd of Texas, Jeff Denham of California and and Carlos Curbelo of Florida, introduced the Uniting and Securing America Act in January. The bill would shield undocumented immigrants brought...

    The man accused of killing a teenage girl in a car accident in Houston had previously been deported from the United States three times, federal records show. Edy Lopez-Hernandez, 27, was arrested after crashing into another vehicle and fleeing the scene Sunday. He was later determined to be under the influence of unspecified narcotics when he was driving "at a high rate of speed" and crashed into the rear of another car, according to Houston police. A 17-year-old girl in the back seat of the vehicle that he hit died on impact. Lopez-Hernandez, who is from Guatemala, got out of...

    Walker County, Texas, officials issued a warrant for Platero-Rodriguez's arrest for homicide by firearm in the death of a man in the Houston area earlier this year. The suspected gang member was found with a 9 mm pistol, which the Berkeley County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday could have been the weapon used in the Texas murder. Officials said the suspect killed the man, put his body in the trunk of the vehicle and poured gasoline on it before setting the vehicle on fire. He then apparently fled to South Carolina. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) told Fox News that...

    A young man who came to Minnesota as a "refugee" from Somalia has been linked to Syed Farook, the shooter who, along with his jihadist wife, killed 14 Americans in San Bernardino less than a week ago. Fox News contributor Rod Wheeler provided a key piece of information about the case, linking the San Bernardino shooters to Mohamed Hassan, a known terrorist recruiter who has been on the FBI radar screen for at least seven years. As WND reported in May, Hassan also helped radicalize Elton Simpson, one of the two jihadists who tried to storm into a Prophet Muhammad...

    Soon after Parthiv Patel earned a law degree at Drexel and passed demanding bar exams in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, doors slammed shut. A so-called Dreamer who was illegally brought to the United States from India at age 5, Patel was denied a law license because he is not a citizen. His story grabbed the attention of Gurbir S. Grewal, New Jersey’s newly appointed attorney general, weeks after Patel won the right to become a lawyer through a yearlong legal battle. Bucking tradition — and the Trump administration’s plans to rescind the rights of Dreamers — the first Sikh attorney...

    A 7-year-old boy was led out of a Miami-Dade Police car's backseat on Friday afternoon in metal handcuffs -- while his mother videotaped and comforted him from just a few feet away. The video captures the boy -- his hands cuffed behind his back -- stepping out of a patrol and guided into the Miami Children's Hospital by a female uniformed police officer. "It's okay, my love," the boy's mother says in Spanish. His father, Rolando Fuentes, saw the video once -- and can't bring himself to watch it again. "I saw it once but I cannot see it anymore,"...

    Like my past proposals, this basically would provide the right to work and stay in the USA for millions in an eventual exchange for a Constitution amendment that repeals the Amendment XIV Section I anchor baby clause, imposes federal income taxation tax caps, voter photo ID & US citizen requirements and provides for Presidential line item veto power. You ought to know the scofflaws will be pandered to yet again, so we ought to get something in return. Hanging tough for a few days, capitulating clownishly and getting nothing but the tax tab to pay isn't the right way. REFORM...

    Legalizing 2 million illegal immigrant “Dreamers” would cost the government $25.9 billion over the next decade, as those now-legal people would claim more tax, education and other benefits they haven’t been able to get before, the Congressional Budget Office said Friday. The CBO also said newly legalized Dreamers would sponsor 80,000 more immigrants to enter the country as part of “chain migration.” Immigrant-rights activists have argued that legalizing Dreamers would be a financial boon to the country, but the CBO and the Joint Committee on Taxation suggested otherwise, saying that while they would pay somewhat higher taxes in to the...

    CHAMBLEE, Ga. — Not many notice when the SUVs arrive. Around 5 a.m., when the immigration agents pull into the parking lot of the Chamblee Heights apartments, 16 miles from downtown Atlanta, only one person is on the lookout. Cristina Monteros catches sight of the cars with the telltale tinted windows from her small apartment near the front, where she runs a day care, and calls her downstairs neighbor: ICE is here. The neighbor dials another, who passes it on. It takes less than 15 minutes for everyone in the complex to hear about “la migra,” whereupon they shut their...
