    Ditch Brooklyn, millennials. The real place to be is Des Moines, a city with a blossoming culture scene, thriving start-ups, and urban beauty.(VIDEO-AT-LINK) DES MOINES, Iowa—This is too nice a place to spawn a war cry. But if the city had one, it would be the sentiment heard across a downtown populated by baristas, tech start-up founders, musicians, and nonprofit professionals alike: "It's Des Moines against the world." Young people here know what you think of this city. It doesn't need repeating. But ambitious minds are in the process of building a new Des Moines, a tech hub in Silicon...
  • UC San Francisco performs kidney transplant for illegal immigrant after thousands support his cause

    OAKLAND -- Seven years of waiting are over for Jesus Navarro, an illegal immigrant who finally received a new kidney after his story motivated one man plus thousands of others to fight on his behalf for a transplant. Navarro, 36, was recuperating at his small Oakland apartment Thursday with his wife and daughter after the successful transplant last week at UC San Francisco Medical Center. The hospital became embroiled in controversy nine months ago after Navarro came to believe -- despite having private health insurance, despite his wife's pledge to donate her own kidney -- that his immigration status doomed...

    Salinas’ top cop is reaching out to allay fears many Spanish-speakers have of the police, feelings born from mistrust and misconceptions of law enforcement. “You’re hearing this from my voice and I’ll say it over and over again: We don’t care where you’re from; we don’t care how you got here,” said police Chief Kelly McMillin during a forum Thursday aimed at improving community relations on Thursday. “All we want is your information and your support. As long as you reside in our community, our mission is to keep you safe. Nothing else is important to us.”

    Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, chairman of the Committee on Migration of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, has issued a statement supporting efforts by Alabama’s bishops to overturn a recently enacted immigration law. “The Catholic Church provides pastoral and social services to all persons, regardless of their immigration status,” Archbishop Gomez said in his statement. “Our mandate is to provide for the pastoral and social care of all of God’s children. Government should not infringe upon that duty, as America’s founding fathers made clear in the US Constitution.” “This new Alabama law makes it illegal for a...
  • Undocumented immigrant and federal fugitive costs taxpayers $350,000 at Miami-Dade hospitals

    A longtime federal fugitive who was an undocumented immigrant cost taxpayers more than $350,000 in healthcare at Miami-Dade hospitals before he died last year, a county investigative report has revealed. The Miami-Dade Office of the Inspector General said the patient was a Colombian who fled the United States in 1983 after a cocaine smuggling conviction but returned under a false name. In 26 visits to the Jackson Health System from 2003 through 2010, his care cost $201,716 — $155,334 in charity care paid by Miami-Dade taxpayers and $46,382 paid by Medicaid, the state-federal program for the poor. The man also...

    AUSTIN — When U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced in June it was urging prosecutors to use discretion when placing illegal immigrants in deportation proceedings, skeptics urged caution. “We’ve heard this before,” they claimed. People like Roxann Lara give them one more reason to say they were right. Lara, originally from Delicias, Chihuahua, is five months pregnant and the mother of two U.S. citizen children. She is in the country illegally because she overstayed a visa. Her attorney says she’s the “poster child” for leniency under the June directive. Instead, Lara was detained and processed by immigration authorities in Anthony,...

    WASHINGTON – Rep. Tom Tancredo's charge that Mexican drug cartels are buying up legitimate businesses in U.S. cities to launder money and using some of the proceeds to win local mayoral and city council seats for politicians who can shape the policies and personnel decisions of their police forces, has been backed up by a veteran gang investigator. Richard Valdemar, a retired sergeant with the L.A. County sheriff's department and a longtime member of a federal task force investigating gang activity, went beyond the charges made by Tancredo, the chairman of the House Immigration Reform Caucus who has led the...

    Oakland -- Eight people, including four employees of the state Department of Motor Vehicles office in Oakland, have been charged in a scheme in which some of the DMV workers allegedly accepted thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for providing driver licenses, identification cards and registration stickers for cars that did not pass smog tests, authorities said today. Four of the defendants, including three DMV employees, appeared in U.S. District Court in Oakland this morning on charges that they accepted bribes to sell identification documents to non-U.S. citizens. All four were ordered to return to court Friday for further...
