    'The state of Washington has canceled the driver's license of a journalist who, in a New York Times Magazine article last month, revealed that for 14 years he kept a secret from his U.S. employers: He is an illegal immigrant. He obtained a Washington driver's license weeks before his Oregon license was to expire on his 30th birthday earlier this year.

    EDMOND — A 40-year-old Edmond man was arrested on a sexual battery complaint after he allegedly sexually assaulted two women with special needs, police said. Glynda Chu, spokeswoman for the Edmond Police Department, said the victims, one age 21, the other age 24, worked at Goodwill and EARC in Edmond, and because of their bravery and immediate action investigators were able to identify the suspect. “This man tried to prey on women he thought would not have a voice, but he was very wrong,” Chu said. “As soon as the women reported the sexual assaults, the Police Department began an...

    I was duped. I once hired an illegal immigrant to be a reporter for the Chronicle. "I don't think I'm a criminal," Jose Antonio Vargas told me when we met last week, right before he announced his status to the world. "Don't make me seem guiltier than I am." Jose lied to me and everyone else he worked for, and that's not kosher, especially in a profession where facts and, more elusively, the truth are considered valuable commodities. In 2003 he wrote a story for us about illegals getting fake drivers' licenses in the Mission when he'd used phony documents...

It’s what it takes – large ones – for Mexico and 13 other Latin American countries to file motions in U.S. federal court expressing opposition to Utah’s new illegal immigration enforcement law. In its latest display of brazen hypocrisy, Mexico lists several reasons for its opposition to HB497, including the impediment of diplomatic relations, hindering trade and tourism, and possible harassment of Mexican citizens. Say it out loud: GRANDES CAJONES. “Mexico respectfully submits that if HB497 is allowed to take effect, it will have significant and long-lasting adverse impact on...

    Following Sept. 11, one would assume that the U.S. government’s broken system for tracking illegals would be better than ever. Unfortunately, reality paints the opposite picture. Despite being attacked by Middle Eastern terrorists whose visas had expired, the U.S. is still failing to properly examine immigrants’ status. Unfortunately, there are millions of foreigners who initially come here legally, but do not maintain the proper immigration status. Judicial Watch has more:

    The latest Pew Research Center national poll released today underscores how slender a beachhead President Obama has established among whites more than two years into his presidency. In his 2008 election, Obama ran well only among two groups of whites -- young people and white women with at least a four year college education, two groups that are generally receptive to government activism. In the 2010 GOP landslide, those groups stuck with Democrats relatively more loyally than the rest of the white electorate, but the party's support tumbled even among them.

At this late date, after millions of dollars spent, people mysteriously dying, and the jailing of a decorated Army officer–all of whom questioned Obama’s legality–any so called ‘birth certificate’ produced now is nothing more than suspect, and it is more than likely another faked document…a...

    A federal appellate judge expressed deep skepticism Monday about the Justice Department's lawsuit over Arizona's new immigration law, leaving uncertain the Obama administration's chances of stopping the law from taking effect. Judge John T. Noonan Jr. grilled administration lawyers at a hearing before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. He took aim at the core of the Justice Department's argument: that the Arizona statute is "preempted" by federal law and is especially troublesome because it requires mandatory immigration status checks in certain circumstances. "I've read your brief, I've read the District Court opinion, I've heard your interchange...

The investigation is focused on a naturalized U.S. citizen, originally from Pakistan, who became the target of an undercover sting operation, the sources said. An administration official said the man drew the attention of law enforcement officials by seeking to obtain unspecified materials. The planned attack was not imminent, the sources said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the matter remains under investigation.

    A federal judge today sentenced a Jordanian national who tried to blow up a downtown Dallas skyscraper to 24 years in prison, mostly rejecting defense claims that he was mentally ill and unduly influenced by law enforcement agents. Hosam "Sam" Smadi faced up to 30 years in prison under a plea agreement accepted by U.S. District Judge Barbara Lynn. He will be deported to Jordan once he serves his time. "I can't for the life of me figure out what moved you in this direction," the judge said in delivering the sentence. "You got some encouragement along the way," she...

    Lou Dobbs made a career out of bashing illegal immigrants and the employers who hired them while at CNN. Eventually that got to be too much for CNN, which instead has opted for more middle-of-the-road coverage, and he was forced out. But while Dobbs became a hero for standing up for his beliefs, it turns out he's also a hypocrite. A new investigative report by The Nation's investigative arm confirms that he employed illegal immigrants at his horse farm. This year, Hillary Dobbs [Lou's daughter] became the youngest-ever horse show rider to win $1 million in prize money. While all...

    Fresno (Los Angles Times) -- Gubernatorial candidates Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown tangled in a blistering dispute Saturday over Whitman's employment of an illegal immigrant housekeeper as they met for the campaign’s first and only Spanish-language debate. The most intense exchange of the debate, held at Cal State Fresno, came when the moderator asked Whitman about the revelations earlier this week that she had employed Nicandra Diaz Santillan for nine years before firing her in 2009. Whitman has denied knowing that Diaz Santillan was undocumented until just before the dismissal. Whitman turned to face Brown and accused Brown of being...

    California's largest public employees union has seized on charges that Meg Whitman knowingly hired an illegal immigrant as a housekeeper, funding a Spanish-language TV spot that calls the Republican nominee for governor a "woman of two faces." The campaign ad seeks to damage Whitman's standing among Latino voters, a typically Democratic constituency in California that the billionaire and former eBay CEO has courted in her tight race against Democratic rival Jerry Brown. "Whitman attacks undocumented workers to win votes, but an undocumented woman worked in her house for nine years," a narrator says in Spanish in the ad, launched...
  • Tim Conway Jr. KFI 640 in Los Angeles - "Gloria Allred exposing client to legal jeopardy"

    KFI in Los Angeles ^ | 9-30-10 | dfu on Tim Conway Jr. comments
    Tim Conway made a great point tonight on his show that was confirmed by a trial attorney. In her attempt to use the illegal alien nanny to get Meg Whitman, Allred has opened her client to legal jeopardy. If Allred wanted to get back pay for the illegal alien, she should have negotiated that behind the scenes with Whitman's legal counsel. Instead, Allred went public for her own purposes. She will not answer the question about false documents -- drivers license and social security card, because those are felonies. No one would have known about those felonies, or at least...

    Forget the Statue of Liberty - we now need a statue of Auntie Zeituni, the untired, unhuddled, in fact extremely well-rested illegal alien yearning not to be free, but to live free. So here she is, the president’s half-aunt, 58 years old, “retired,” living in public housing where Americans must wait years for an opening, getting $700 a month from a system into which she never contributed. “I have been treated like Public Enemy Number One,” she told Channel 4’s Jonathan Elias the other night. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. If I ever get in a...
