    US News and World Report ^ | MAy 8, 2013 | Rebekah Metzler
    Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, a newly elected Republican with a penchant for making headlines, filed an amendment that would bar undocumented immigrants currently living in the United States from ever earning citizenship. There are an estimated 11 million people living in the country illegally, and a bipartisan immigration reform measure would create a pathway to citizenship over the course of 13 years by requiring those people to pay penalties and back taxes, as well as learn English. Conservatives opposed to reform decry the path as amnesty, but Democrats say they will not support reform that does not cope with the...

    Presence in Mexico Based on a study done by Georgetown University, the number of immigrants from Lebanon and Syria living in Mexico exceeds 200,000. Along with Iran, Syria is one of Hezbollah’s strongest financial and political supporters, and Lebanon is its country of origin. In July of this year, Mexican authorities arrested Jameel Nasr in Tijuana, Baja California. Nasr was alleged to be tasked with establishing the Hezbollah network in Mexico and throughout South America. In April of last year, the arrest of Jamal Yousef – in New York City – exposed a weapons cache of 100 M- 16 assault...

    The Illinois congressman charged with crafting President Obama’s amnesty bill has embarked on a national tour to promote a special program that allows illegal immigrants with children to remain in the United States. Launched by Democrat Luis Gutierrez, the "Campaign For American Children and Families” aims to grant a special parole to illegal aliens who have relatives in the U.S. so that families can remain together in the land of opportunity. The measure is essential to help those “whose lives are being turned upside down by deportation,” according to the veteran lawmaker who authored a bill to give the...

    SOUTHWEST MIAMI-DADE -(CBSMiami.com) -A 16-year-old girl who had spent Sunday at church found herself without a ride after services. A fellow church member at Church of God, 205 N.E. 2nd Road, offered to drive her home, but the decision to accept the ride turned out to be a mistake. Police say 23-year-old Edwin Carrillo-Garcia did not drive her straight home on the evening of April 3rd and instead took her to an unknown, abandoned area in Southwest Miami-Dade.Carrillo-Garcia then asked the victim for sex and when she repeatedly said no, he stripped her clothes off from the waist down and...

    LANCASTER, Calif. – The asylum seeker from Somalia hung his head as an immigration judge grilled him about his treacherous journey from the Horn of Africa. By air, sea and land he finally made it to Mexico, and then a taxi delivered him into the arms of U.S. border agents at San Diego. Islamic militants had killed his brother, Mohamed Ahmed Kheire testified, and majority clan members had beaten his sister. He had to flee Mogadishu to live.

    Not only did Democrats defeat (on a party-line 26-15 vote) an amendment sponsored by Rep Dean Heller (R-Nev.) that would have kept illegal aliens from being given government subsidized health care under ObamaCare, but it has come to light (per Rush Limbaugh and others) that illegals WILL NOT be fined $2,500 per year if they don't get either a private health insurance plan or enroll in ObamaCare. American citizens though... they WILL be fined $2,500 per year if they don't enroll in either a private health insurance plan or enroll in ObamaCare.

    Not all of the suspected illegal immigrants detained in the raid are in Iowa some are back in Grand Island. In cases where married couples with children both worked at Swift and were detained, the mother has been allowed to return to her kids. One of the alleged illegal immigrants is back at home, but her husband is still with authorities somewhere in Iowa. The 261 suspected illegal immigrants detained in Tuesday's Swift raid were made up of both men and women, some of whom were married to each other. If they had kids, the mom could go home. Thursday...

    Advocates of an open border between the U.S. and Mexico do their best to present a mellow American flag-waving image to the public. But when they gather in semiprivate, they communicate much differently to each other. Perhaps they need to be even more careful. In the big pro-immigration marches this spring, Hispanic activists sought to present themselves as "civil rights" advocates in the gentle and inclusive tradition of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Oh sure, some of the recent marchers went "off message," carrying Mexican flags and calling for "reconquista," but for the most part, the demonstrators were well-behaved. But...

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry unveiled plans on Thursday to place hundreds of surveillance cameras along the Rio Grande and stream the images to the Internet so computer users everywhere can help patrol the U.S.-Mexico border. Speaking to a gathering of sheriffs from border counties, Perry said virtual border patrollers spotting illegal immigrants would be able to call a toll-free phone number to report them to Texas authorities. "A stronger border is what Americans want and it's what our security demands and that is what Texas is going to deliver," he said. The cameras, which would cost $5 million to install...

    The issue: The anti-immigration movement Our view: The U.S. could be sowing the seeds of revolution south of its border. The motives of the anti-immigration crowd are already suspect, with many now wondering openly whether all of the concern about security and “cultural heritage” is a nice way of saying these folks prefer to keep the country from being overrun by people who, shall we say, aren't as white as them. Not so sure about that? Why just last weekend we had the specter of a local “Minuteman” anti-immigration group picketing a Rockford area bank for having the temerity to...

    SAN DIEGO -- Greyhound Lines Inc., the nation's largest intercity bus company, has threatened to fire employees who sell bus tickets to illegal immigrants under an internal policy that some Hispanic advocacy groups are calling an invitation to racial profiling. The "Transportation of Illegal Aliens" policy warns Greyhound's customer service employees to beware of people in large groups, moving in single file and traveling with little or no luggage. It says other telltale signs include people "trying to hide or stay out of plain view" or large groups led by a "guide" who holds everyone's tickets. Greyhound also says immigrant...

    Culprits freshen up a bit at Kolbe's By Patti Lewis Posted: Monday, August 1, 2005 3:52 PM PDT Someone's running around dressed like a congressman. Rep. Jim Kolbe's house in Sonoita was burglarized July 23 by a suspected group of undocumented migrants, said Santa Cruz County Sheriff's Lt. Ramon Fuentes. The burglary was reported shortly after 5 p.m., when one of Kolbe's local friends noticed one of the home's doors was wide open. Sheriff's deputies, Patagonia Marshal's deputies and Border Patrol agents quickly responded. It quickly became apparent that the culprits weren't interested in big-ticket items, because electronics and other...

    The mainstream press has only recently begun to cover the failure of the federal government’s obligation to seriously address the security of the borders of the United States with respect to illegal immigration. Largely due to the launch of the Minute Man Project which took place in April 2005 in a southern border ‘neighborhood watch’ in Arizona, the media was forced to cover the event as it was a symbol of the majority of Americans who believe that the borders should be secured and that U.S. laws should be observed. For those not fully immersed in the matter however, it...

    A group of stranded illegal immigrants facing death in the parched Arizona desert saved themselves by using a cell phone they found to call rescue services, the U.S. Border Patrol said Thursday. The group got lost in the desert near Arivaca, south of Tucson, Arizona, Wednesday after their guide abandoned them during a four-day trek across the border from Mexico. Lost and low on water, they used a cell phone they found in their guide's bag to dial 911. Rescuers dispatched helicopters and located the group in the desert shortly after sunset. "Their quick thinking in using the phone to...

    While Mexico has enhanced security since the Sept. 11 attacks, future cooperation hinges on U.S. willingness to liberalize its immigration policies, former Mexican Foreign Minister Jorge Castańeda warned Congress on Tuesday. Mr. Castańeda, who is running as an independent in the 2006 presidential race, said security must be twinned with what he called the "whole enchilada" – legalization for the 6 million Mexicans living here illegally, visas for Mexicans desiring to come here in the future, and economic development for impoverished interior regions responsible for the exodus. "There can be no future cooperation beyond what already exists without some form...

    WASHINGTON - (KRT) - The White House is placing new emphasis on border enforcement to improve the prospects for President Bush's plan to provide temporary guest worker status to illegal immigrants. The new focus, Sen. John Cornyn and others say, is a result of what the White House has heard from key members of Congress: No immigration liberalization plan will pass without first tackling tougher enforcement. "What's been missing in the discussion about immigration reform is a strong commitment to border security," said Cornyn, a Texas Republican who chairs the Senate immigration subcommittee. Cornyn predicted the White House would soon...

A Rasmussen Reports survey found that just 17% believe immigrants should maintain the culture of their home country.Seventy-nine percent (79%) say immigrants should be required to learn English before they are allowed to become citizens.

    I t appears fashionable these days, and almost politically correct, to blame hard-working immigrants, especially those from Mexico and Central America, for the social and economic ills of and our nation. Anti-immigrant fervor on TV and radio talk shows, citizens attempting to enforce immigration laws and the enactment of restrictive laws, such as the Real ID Act, are evidence of this trend. Some of our elected officials are joining the parade, going so far as to call for the closing of our southern border. This growing hysteria is nothing new: Similar scapegoating has occurred at other troubled times in our...

In East County, residents whose homes and ranches abut illegal border-crossing routes matter-of-factly give water to migrants who limp onto their property seeking help, then promptly dial the Border Patrol. This has been part of daily life along Southern California's border with Mexico for years. Undocumented migrants try to come in,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Thousands of illegal immigrants have obtained driver's licenses in three states, federal authorities said Thursday, highlighting a security hole that the Sept. 11 hijackers exploited. Three employees of Florida's motor vehicles agency were among 52 people arrested in a bribery scam that put driver's licenses in the hands of at least 2,000 illegal immigrants, officials said. The case, announced Thursday, follows similar arrests in Michigan and Maryland over the past week. "With a valid driver's license, you establish an identity," said Michael Garcia, assistant secretary of the Homeland Security Department. "There's no way to identify whether that...
