    A federal appeals court on Thursday rejected the Trump administration’s bid to move ahead with its planned cancellation of a program that has provided protections and benefits to undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. when they were children. The ruling, by a three-judge panel of the San Francisco-based Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, said the administration voiced inadequate and flawed reasons for its decision in September 2017 to terminate an Obama-era program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA.

    A record high number of immigrants were ordered to be removed from the U.S. in 2018, a new report shows. The report comes after President Trump made immigration a central focus of the midterm election campaign. Immigration officials ordered 287,741 new deportations in the fiscal year ending September 30, 2018, according to a new report from Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). TRAC obtained the data from the Department of Homeland Security through Freedom of Information Act requests. It's the highest number of new removal filings since the group began tracking deportation orders in 1992. Just over 5 percent...

    Now that the smoke has cleared and we view the carnage, it's important to note that the last laugh should be on the Democrats. Republicans have until January 2nd, 2019 to make that a reality. With a little under two months left before the new Democrat majority in the House is sworn in, Republicans can push through every single element of President Trump's agenda. Fund the wall. Check. Increase the tax cuts to the middle class. Check. Make all the tax cuts permanent. Check. Ratify the new USMCA agreement. Check. Abolish birthright citizenship. Check. Finalize a limited DACA. Check.

  • Trailing GOP U.S. Rep. Will Hurd by 689 votes, Ortiz Jones campaign says Texas race "is not over"

    Ortiz Jones has not called for a recount, but says she wants to see all provisional, absentee and military votes counted. The Texas congressional race between incumbent Republican Will Hurd and Democratic challenger Gina Ortiz Jones is still too close to call following a dramatic overnight in which Ortiz Jones pulled ahead, Hurd pulled back on top, and news outlets across the nation retracted their projections. On Wednesday morning in Congressional District 23, the state's only consistent battleground district, Hurd was leading Ortiz Jones by 689 votes, with all precincts counted. "This election is not over—every vote matters," said Noelle...

    Multnomah County “sheriff” Mike Reese is now taking heat for failing to notify I.C.E. when he had an illegal alien in custody up on assault charges. Those charges were dropped, of course, and the illegal alien was set free, only for said illegal alien to go on to murder his wife by stabbing her to death and dumping her body in a ditch. Multnomah County is home to Portland, Oregon. ... A man accused of murdering his wife and leaving her body in a ditch is at the center of a firestorm between ICE and the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office....

    The blue wave is now a bygone figment of a liberal Hollywood fantasy. Voter excitement is clearly with the Republican Party and President Donald Trump! There is a Red Wave Rising! One pundit, Michael E. Newton, has been tracking the 2018 mid-term election data to date. He addresses people’s questions about mid-term voting to date: Newton explains that because Democrat and Republican voting may have gotten closer each day, doesn’t mean that the Democrats are really catching up in early voting. It just means the Republican percent of gains over 2016 are not as great as they were yesterday: What...

    In 2007, I went to the border in Nogales, Arizona to see for myself what was really going on at the border. What I found literally shocked me. I saw first-hand the “rape trees” where human traffickers display the undergarments of the women they’ve raped along the trail. I saw acres of desert literally laden with trash and debris. I witnessed a van of drug runners, pursued by border patrol, speeding right past the house of the family I was staying with. The most heart-wrenching part of my trip was the conversation I had with the mother from across the border who met...

    Latinos and Hispanics, legally here in the U.S. are speaking out against the caravan heading north from Honduras to the U.S. That was the report from Univision, which is hardly a conservative news site. According to the Daily Caller, they're saying things like this: “How is it possible that a caravan from Central America is on it’s way to the U.S. and the people are speaking the way they’re speaking, demanding to get in. No sir, this isn’t their country and they need to respect it,” one man said. Another woman told Megid, “like the president says, they can...

    A Honduran man was killed late on Sunday as the crackdown on migrants and refugees walking from Central America to the United States intensified, Al Jazeera reports. Henry Diaz, a 26-year-old Honduran, was shot in the head with a rubber bullet, causing a deep head wound. He died on the way to a local hospital. Diaz was among more than 1,000 migrants and refugees, most of them from Honduras, who attempted to force their way through the Tecun Uman crossing on Sunday. Police also used tear gas. More than 100 people were wounded. The group at the Mexican border on...

    It was maddening and frustrating to watch this past week’s coverage of the so-called “caravan” of thousands of Hondurans, Guatemalans and Salvadorans plowing through Mexico’s southern border and their subsequent march toward the United States. How is the support system, organizational infrastructure, logistical planning and financial backing not a big part of this story?......Any average American watching this enormous undertaking would naturally be curious as to how the entire thing is being managed and how it originated........... Thousands of people don’t spontaneously decide to leave their homes and walk thousands of miles, violating multiple international borders, without some help.... We...

    When pipe bombs turned up in the mail of Hillary Clinton and other prominent Democrats this week, the first recipient — billionaire investor and liberal philanthropist George Soros — quickly fell out of the headlines. But there’s no chance his many critics and enemies have forgotten him. White nationalists and others on the political fringes have long cast Soros as the supposed leader of a globalist Jewish plot to undermine white Christian civilization. Now, President Donald Trump, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and other political leaders have brought the vilification of Soros into the mainstream. This year, Soros has been...

    President Trump is preparing to announce a sweeping border crackdown in a speech Tuesday, a week before the midterm elections, in which he is expected to invoke emergency powers to stop migrants from entering the United States and depict them as a grave national security threat, administration officials said Friday. Trump is considering steps that would bar migrants from crossing the border and deny them a chance to apply for asylum in the United States, measures that legal scholars and immigrant rights groups say would contravene U.S. laws and international treaties, likely triggering challenges in federal court. The president, undeterred,...

    In the 19th century, savvy American saloon-owners offered free lunches to attract noontime patrons. Inevitably, the diners would get thirsty and buy expensive drinks—thus was born the expression, “there’s no such thing as a free lunch.” Despite its humble origins, the phrase captures a deep and omnipresent truth: everything has a price, an opportunity cost, a trade-off. This is as true of lunches as it is of America’s immigration policy. Although The Economist‘s propaganda-artists claim otherwise, mass immigration does not enrich all Americans. There are obvious winners and losers. The winners are wealthy Americans and the immigrants themselves; the losers...

    Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” U.S. Senate candidate Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) said America needed to send financial aid to stabilize Central America to decrease asylum-seeking immigrants. O’Rourke said, “If things are so desperate in Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, that someone would risk their lives to come here than what can we do to improve situations there? We have invested trillions of dollars for wars in the Middle East. Could we invest some fraction of that to provide the stability in Northern triangle counties of Central America make sure people have a reason to stay and raise their families where...

    The Arizona Senate race is one that Democrats think they can pick up. Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) is unpopular; the latest crop of Republicans that have represented the state have disappointed conservatives and its trending blue. It’s going to be tight. Right now, Republican Congresswoman Martha McSally and Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema are duking it out. Sinema had a commanding lead, but the vicious fight over the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh gave the GOP base a boost, plus the serial bad news from Sinema’s past activist history has turned her Senate run into something of a dumpster fire. There’s...

    A caravan of thousands of Honduran migrants is headed north in hopes of crossing the U.S. border. You may have heard some scary things about it. What's true and what's false? Here are five allegations bouncing around the internet that are definitely "alternative facts." MYTH 1: It's being funded by Democrats. Trump said at a campaign rally on Thursday that "a lot of money has been passing to people" traveling north from Honduras. A Republican from Florida, Rep. Matt Gaetz shared a short video that Trump later promoted of migrants being given cash and suggested that they were being funded...
