    An illegal alien previously detained by a sanctuary city in New Jersey has been accused of killing three individuals in Missouri, but federal authorities argue that these crimes could have been prevented if better cooperation existed between immigration officials and local enforcement. According to Fox News, "Luis Rodrigo Perez, 23, a native of Mexico, is charged with fatally shooting two men and wounding two others on Nov. 1 and fatally shooting a woman the next day."Perez had previously been detained by Middlesex County, NJ authorities on domestic violence charges. Immigration and Customs Enforcement placed a detainer on the illegal alien, which...

    A majority of Germans say the level of mass migration has left them feeling “like a stranger in their own country”, according to a new study. Presented as part of this year’s Leipzig University research into “authoritarian” attitudes in the country, the figure showed a rise of 12 points since the Competence Center for Right-Wing Extremism and Democracy Research tested Germans on the same questions in 2014, with 56 per cent of Germans expressing the sentiment in 2018. Other findings from the 328-page study, for which 2,416 Germans were interviewed between May and July this year, were that 44 per...

    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...

    A U.S. appeals court in California ruled on Thursday that President Donald Trump’s administration must continue a program begun under former President Barack Obama that protects hundreds of thousands of immigrants who were brought into the country illegally as children. The decision by the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals preserves the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program introduced in 2012 that has shielded from deportation a group of immigrants dubbed “Dreamers” and given them work permits, though not a path to citizenship. The ruling represented another legal defeat for Trump over DACA, although he has won...

    Motel 6 will pay up to $7.6 million to Hispanic guests to settle a proposed class-action lawsuit claiming that it violated their privacy by regularly providing guest lists to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents. The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) filed the lawsuit after the Phoenix New Times said ICE agents had arrested 20 people over six months at Motel 6s in Arizona, using guest lists to target people by national origin. “Motel 6 fully recognizes the seriousness of the situation and accepts full responsibility for both compensating those who were harmed and taking the...

    NBC said on Monday morning that it will no longer air an immigration ad from President Donald Trump, widely derided as racially divisive, that aired during the network's NFL coverage on Sunday night. "After further review, we recognize the insensitive nature of the ad and have decided to cease airing it across our properties as soon as possible," said Joe Benarroch, a spokesperson for NBC's advertising sales department. NBC came under fire for airing the commercial during its Sunday NFL coverage of a game between the New England Patriots and the Green Bay Packers. The ad aired 18 times across...

    New York Times best-selling author and populist conservative columnist Ann Coulter says the 14th Amendment is used to drive down the wages of black Americans by incentivizing illegal aliens to come to the United States in order to be rewarded with birthright citizenship for their U.S.-born children. During an interview with talk radio host Lars Larson, Coulter said the 14th Amendment was intended for black Americans but is now being used by the big business lobby to drive down black Americans’ wages by incentivizing illegal immigration. Coulter said: The 14th Amendment … was about freed slaves. They were part of...

    Mexico has offered temporary work permits to migrants who register for asylum, as a big caravan of Central American migrants makes its way through the country toward the US The plan also envisages temporary ID cards, medical care and schooling. But to qualify, migrants must remain in Mexico's southern Chiapas and Oaxaca states. The US has warned that about 800 troops may be sent to the US-Mexico border to stop the migrant caravan. "I am bringing out the military for this National Emergency," US President Donald Trump tweeted earlier this week. "They [the migrants] will be stopped!" The president also...
  • The Nuance of Subject to the Jurisdiction

    I watched Judge Andrew Napolitano on the Fox Business Network talk about the jurisdiction clause in the 14th Amendment, specifically, “subject to the jurisdiction thereof.” He made the point, as I did in my previous post, that one group of people that this applies to are foreign diplomats. He disagrees with the contention that it should apply to illegal immigrants too. The point he made was that illegal immigrants are indeed subject to the laws of the country. If an illegal robs a bank and gets caught, he will be arrested and prosecuted. Therefore, the Judge concludes, they’re subject...

    HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - President Donald Trump attacked the media on Friday afternoon, accusing reporters of inciting violence just one week after a series of explosive devices were mailed to critics of the president, as well as one media outlet. “You know what, you’re creating violence by your question. You are creating. You," Trump said at the White House as he left for a campaign rally, pointing to a reporter who said some had suggested the president's rhetoric could be encouraging violence. "...The fake news is creating violence." “I'll tell you what, if the media would write correctly and write accurately...

    Teachers and other staffers woking at Middleton Heights Elementary School in Middleton, Idaho are under investigation by the school district after wearing Halloween costumes to class that Superintendent Josh Middleton called "clearly insensitive and inappropriate." As local station KTVB reports, two since-deleted photos initially posted to the school district's Facebook page depict a group of staffers in the problematic costumes. In one, six people are holding portions of cardboard ostensibly painted to look like a border wall, with text reading "Make America Great Again." In the other, seven staffers wear ponchos, sombreros and fake mustaches. The superintendent was made aware...

    GOP strategist Dan Senor says the "biggest risk" to Republicans heading into the midterm elections is President Trump's handling of immigration issues, which he says convey "chaos." Senor served as a senior adviser to Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential campaign. "Where I think the president went too far is on this birthright citizenship issue – for several reasons. One, what he's proposing is unconstitutional. Two, he said sort of in a flip way, not coordinated with anyone in the congressional leadership,'I'll just do this by executive order'... and it just conveyed chaos," Senor told "CBS This...

    The number of babies born to unauthorized immigrant parents in the U.S. fell to 250,000 in 2016, the lowest figure since 2000, according to a new Pew Research Center report published Thursday afternoon. Such births have decreased 36 percent since hitting a peak of about 390,000 in 2007, the researchers said. The new data comes as President Trump is focusing new attention on the issue by vowing to eliminate birthright citizenship, the constitutional provision that children born in the U.S. are automatically American citizens. Children born to undocumented immigrants accounted for 6 percent of the 4 million births in the...

    There are nearly 300,000 children of illegal aliens born in the United States every year, exceeding the total number of U.S. births in 48 states. New wide-ranging analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies‘ Steven Camarotta reveals that there are roughly 297,000 births per year to illegal immigrants in the U.S. The children of illegal aliens are commonly known as “anchor babies,” as they anchor their illegal alien and noncitizen parents in the U.S. and eventually are allowed to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country through the process known as “chain migration.” The analysis notes that...
  • Revoking birthright citizenship would enforce the Constitution

    Birthright citizenship is mandated by the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, and therefore can only be “changed” by constitutional amendment, not by mere executive order or act of Congress, or so the argument goes. That view depends on reading the 14th Amendment as actually mandating automatic citizenship for anyone and everyone born on US soil, no matter the circumstances. Temporary visitors, such as tourists, students and guest workers, can unilaterally confer citizenship on their children merely by giving birth while here, is the claim. That view has given rise to the cottage industry known as “birth tourism.” Worse, under this...

    Sen. Joe Donnelly, the vulnerable Democratic candidate running for reelection in Indiana, said he was open to looking at legislation that would end birthright citizenship during a Tuesday debate. "I’m the only person on this stage who voted three times for a border wall. I voted against sanctuary cities. I’ve stood for secure borders with John McCain when in 2013, we passed legislation that would have provided an additional 20,000 border agents to the border," he said when asked about birthright citizenship. "I heard you say that Lindsey Graham is going to put legislation forward" to rescind the law, Donnelly...

    Immigrant rights groups and attorneys Tuesday blasted President Donald Trump’s declared intention to end birthright citizenship with an executive order as a political ploy before the midterm elections. "This is ethnic cleansing. This is an attempt to whiteout America’s history and heritage as a nation of immigrants. And it’s unconstitutional," said Jess Morales Rocketto, chair of Families Belong Together, an activist movement. "Americans will reject this cynical political ploy to stoke hate before the election," she said. Omar Jadwad, director of the American Civil Liberties Union’s Immigrants’ Rights Project, said, "the president cannot erase the Constitution with an executive order,...

    States, with members dropping out to return home, some opting to try their luck in Mexico and others demanding "safe and dignified transport," as the endless walking begins to take its toll. The first of the three caravans attempting the journey is still at least 1,000 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border. A Fox News crew traveling with the leading caravan Tuesday observed migrants lining a bridge outside of the town of Niltepec, hoping to get rides in a series of buses that were lined up. That caravan is estimated to contain 4,000 people -- but the number is slowly shrinking...
