    PHOENIX - With many of those crossing the border illegally shifting to remote areas in response to stepped-up enforcement, the trash they leave behind is becoming tougher - and riskier - to clean up, a state agency director told lawmakers Thursday. "These are dangerous areas," Henry Darwin of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality told the Senate Border Security, Federalism and States Sovereignty Committee. "These are known areas of illegal immigration, illegal drug trafficking." He called trash along the border "a fairly significant issue" that has persisted even as illegal border crossings have declined slightly. Showing pictures of trash-strewn landscapes,...

    SANTA FE – Gov. Susana Martinez joined Archbishop Michael Sheehan and other Catholic bishops for breakfast Wednesday and met privately in the state Capitol over the weekend with New Mexico’s top-ranking Roman Catholic leader. But while the governor and Sheehan were able to find common ground regarding an abortion bill, they remain divided on the high-profile driver’s license issue. Sheehan and other Catholic bishops have staunchly defended the 2003 state law that allows illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses, while Martinez has waged a high-profile effort to repeal the law. At the Wednesday morning Catholic prayer breakfast attended by Martinez...

    SANTA FE — The Santa Fe County jail continues to release many illegal immigrants — some of them dangerous criminals — to the streets before immigration officials can detain them. That’s according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials who this week ramped up their criticism of the lockup in Santa Fe, known for its “safe haven” attitude toward immigrants. After the agency’s statements to KOAT-TV, repeating earlier claims that jail officials don’t do enough to help them enforce federal immigration law, the county and ICE sat down to try to reach an understanding.

    by John Hill Stand With Arizona Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio is appealing a federal judge's ruling that prohibited his deputies from detaining people under Arizona's immigrant smuggling law based solely on the suspicion that they're in the country illegally. Arpaio's lawyers told U.S. District Judge Murray Snow in a filing that they will appeal the judge's preposterous Dec. 23 ruling in a lawsuit brought by the ACLU alleging that the sheriff's deputies racially profiled Latinos in immigration patrols. The ruling - like the Department of Justice's recent accusations of racial profiling - was based almost entirely upon "testimony" of...

    These are precisely the immigrants who have been waiting in line and now face a bureaucratic challenge to obtaining the physical green cards. The proposed rule change falls precisely within the scope of what administrations do. The regulatory change is important because, under current procedures, some persons who have already met the eligibility requirements for green cards must leave the U.S. to obtain their permanent residence status, but as soon as they leave, they are immediately barred from re-entering the U.S. for three or ten years because of a period of unlawful presence in the United States. There is a...

    Two years after the Secure Communities immigration enforcement program was implemented, federal officials determined that choices available to local law enforcement agencies that wished to decline or limit their participation would be "streamlined" or "eliminated," making the information-sharing program mandatory, according to a memo recently made public. Launched in 2008, Secure Communities was promoted to local and state leaders as a way to focus immigration enforcement efforts on "serious convicted criminals." But the program, which involves the FBI sharing fingerprints collected from county jails with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, has come under fire because a large percentage of immigrants...

    Reporting from Washington— The Obama administration will announce Friday a proposed new regulation that would allow certain undocumented immigrants to remain in America while applying for legal status -- a step aimed at keeping families intact and one that may also shore up the president's support with Latino voters. As it stands, people living in the U.S. illegally who leave the country to apply for a green card face years of separation from family members. Depending on how long they've lived in America, once they leave they are barred from returning for up to 10 years.

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Obama administration plans a rule change to help reduce the time illegal immigrant spouses and children are separated from citizen relatives while they try to win legal status in the United States, a senior administration official said Thursday. Currently, illegal immigrants must leave the country before they can ask the government to waive a three- to 10-year ban on legally coming back to the U.S. The length of the ban depends on how long they have lived in the U.S. without permission. The official said the new rule would let children and spouses of citizens ask...

    Fuentes has spent 374 days at Community Regional Medical Center, the longest uninterrupted stay by a patient at the Fresno acute-care hospital, according to staff recollection.

The average length of hospital stay for uncomplicated pancreatitis is about two weeks, with a complicated case taking as many as 45 to 65 days, according to the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract.

Steve Fischmann, a Dona Ana County Democrat, is switching to the governor's side, saying he will vote with her because that is what the vast majority of people in hid district want.

    In the upcoming presidential election, two issues are more important than any others: repealing Obamacare and halting illegal immigration. If we fail at either one, the country will be changed permanently. Taxes can be raised and lowered. Regulations can be removed (though they rarely are). Attorneys general and Cabinet members can be fired. Laws can be repealed. Even Supreme Court justices eventually die. But capitulate on illegal immigration, and the entire country will have the electorate of California. There will be no turning back. Similarly, if Obamacare isn't repealed in the next few years, it never will be.

    by John HillStand With Arizona Maricopa County, AZ Sheriff Joe Arpaio's Human Smuggling Unit arrested 17 illegal aliens over 48 hours - including 2 smugglers, in the north valley region. The illegals had paid the smugglers between $1,000 and $2,000 each to be smuggled across the border. Demonstrating how Arizona is a critical gateway for the entire nation, most of those arrested were heading to locations in the east: Mississippi, Virginia, Florida, Georgia and New Jersey. They are now headed to Sheriff Joe's Tent City instead. Way to go, Joe! But the shocking detail of this arrest is the...

    A U.S. Border Patrol agent shot and killed a man Tuesday night near Sells on the Tohono O'odham Nation. Initial reports indicate that the agent shot and killed a man who was assaulting another agent, said the Border Patrol in an emailed statement. The shooting occurred at 8 p.m. The citizenship of the man who was shot has not yet been determined, the statement said. The agency said it "regrets the loss of life" and that it is fully cooperating with the investigation led by Tohono O'odham Police and the FBI.

    I tell them about the Dream Act,” said Miriam Gonzalez, 23, who has been registering voters at Latino supermarkets like Ranch Market and Food City, referring to the White House-backed legislation that would provide young Hispanic students a path to citizenship but has been stalled by Republican opposition in Congress. “I keep talking, and then people register...

    PHOENIX - A Tucson police officer has no legal right to challenge last year's tough state law aimed at illegal immigrants, a federal appeals court ruled Thursday. In a unanimous decision, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected arguments by Martin Escobar that SB 1070 puts him in the untenable position of being disciplined for refusing to enforce a law he believes to be illegal or enforcing the law and being subject to lawsuit for violating the civil rights of others. The judges also said Escobar's status as "a Hispanic residing in Arizona" does not...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | November 28, 2011 | Joel Gehrke
    Democrats in Congress have proposed a new racial profiling ban that could thwart state and local laws on immigration enforcement, such as the controversial Arizona law currently tied up in federal court, by witholding federal funding for state and local law enforcement agencies engaged in "racial profiling" and empowering the Department of Justice (DOJ) to file lawsuits against state and local governments. Sens. Harry Reid, D-Nev., and lead sponsor Ben Cardin, D-Md., are pushing the End Racial Profiling Act of 2011, which would, among other things, "withhold federal law enforcement funding if local and state governments failed to adopt effective...

    Mickey Kaus has a good little essay on this. I have a suggestion: A few years ago my niece was speaking of a class of people as “Canadians.” I wondered about that because the characteristics she was discussing were not in any way attributable to Canadians. I suddenly realized what she was talking about and began to laugh. It’s a great illustration that no matter what you call an identifiable group, people see through your euphemism and know what you’re referring to. So here’s a suggestion, let’s change the term from “illegal alien” to … oh, “Martian.” Everyone will know...

    No license, no car — that policy, which activists have long complained unfairly punishes illegal immigrants who cannot get driver’s licenses, may be about to change. Earlier this year, the Los Angeles Police Department began allowing unlicensed drivers at sobriety checkpoints a free pass from having their car towed and impounded if a licensed driver was available to take it. Since then, Mayor Villaraigosa has been developing a new policy with the LAPD that would expand that change to include traffic stops and reduce the number of 30-day impounds, which can cost hundreds of dollars in fees. The police union...
