    They are powerful images. One is of an anguished young mother lying in a hospital bed holding her lifeless baby. The other is of the father, saying a prayer over the tiny boy just before handing him over to the Office of the Medical Examiner. It was the only time Zach and Aileen Smith held their son, whom they named Dimitri after Aileen’s grandfather. The child was born by Caesarean section in a Santa Fe hospital in an effort to save him, just hours after the Smiths were involved in a crash with an alleged drunk driver on June 10...

    The Obama administration and its immigration agencies are partly responsible for the rape, robbery and murder of American citizens because they refuse to enforce immigration law. That is the upshot of a report from the Congressional Research Service (CRS), which the U.S. House Judiciary Committe released early this week. Thanks to the administration, tens of thousands of dangerous criminals are roaming the streets, committing tens of thousands of terrible crimes they could not commit if the president would deport them. The Data The data assembled by CRS is eye-opening. It offers a chilling picture of just how many crimes illegal...

    Senator Jeff Sessions, Alabama Republican, introduced two top border immigration agents on Thursday to talk about the lax enforcement directives they are given by the Department of Homeland Security and how illegal immigrants are cheating the system to get into United States even after multiple violent crimes have been committed. "The Administration claims it has diligently enforced immigration law and that the border is 'more secure than ever.' But those on the front lines know this to be untrue. They see the violence, chaos and lawlessness. They have lost confidence in the leadership of their agencies...

    BERCLAIR — Bloodstained pavement, gashed tree trunks and a twisted barbed-wire fence marked the end of a desperate journey. On Sunday night, 22 Central Americans and their Mexican-born driver piled into a white Ford F-250 for what would be the last stage on their trip north. They crammed themselves into the truck's cab and lay down in its bed — one atop another — as the vehicle cruised along U.S. 59 between Beeville and Goliad. By Monday, more than half were dead. Most died at the scene, and the others died at hospitals to which they'd been rushed after the...

Courtney Combs (Facebook link), a Republican from Hamilton, said that he came up with the idea for the law more than a year ago but did not move forward because the similar law in Arizona was being challenged.

    The Supreme Court’s decision, announced Monday, in Arizona v. United States opens the way for sensible reform of our immigration laws.Barack Obama and his administration have taken heart that the court overturned Arizona’s state penalties for illegal immigrants. The idea is that states can’t pile higher penalties on top of those voted by Congress, just as states can’t deport people whom Congress allowed into the country.But the much more significant part of the case was the unanimous 8–0 (Justice Kagan not voting) ruling upholding the Arizona provision authorizing state and local law-enforcement personnel to help enforce federal law by...

    The Law: If there's any doubt the Supreme Court upheld the most substantial elements of Arizona's law to enforce U.S. immigration law, take a look at the scorched-earth response from the Obama administration to punish the state. The Supreme Court voted 8-0 Monday to uphold a key provision of Arizona's S.B. 1070 that requires state troopers to check the immigration status of people suspected of being in the U.S. illegally after they've been caught committing other crimes. That acknowledges the reality that the unlicensed man barreling down a desert highway with 40 people sweltering in his van might just be...

    Once again, we are seeing the hundred year war against America by progressive liberals bear fruit. It is always the same story. We saw it recently with the bank collapse. Progressive liberals, starting with Jimmy Carter, ordered banks to make home loans to people that had no hope of paying off the mortgages. The slow trickle of loss became an avalanche under Bill Clinton, as he and Janet Reno enforced draconian penalties on the banks, forcing their continued forced “charity” to those that had no intention of paying back their loans. The result was the collapse of America’s housing market...

So, trying to find the balance there, that is important," Rubio told Sean Hannity Monday night.

    The Obama administration deported nearly 400,000 people last year – a record – with the number driven up by those tossed out for traffic violations and drunken driving, according to a report on Friday. The focus on ousting those with relatively minor offenses raises questions about whether the administration has lived up to its promise to focus on deporting the most dangerous offenders, the Associated Press says. During the fiscal year that ended in Sept. 30, 393,000 people were deported, and half of those were considered criminals. Of the criminal deportations, 7 percent were based on traffic violations, 23 percent...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration will stop deporting and begin granting work permits to younger illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children and have since led law-abiding lives. The election-year initiative addresses a top priority of an influential Latino electorate that has been vocal in its opposition to administration deportation policies. The policy change, described to The Associated Press by two senior administration officials, will affect as many as 800,000 immigrants who have lived in fear of deportation. It also bypasses Congress and partially achieves the goals of the so-called DREAM Act, a long-sought but never enacted...

    A federal department ruled last week that the Forest Service violated a Spanish-speaking woman’s civil rights by calling the Border Patrol to help translate during a routine stop, saying it was “humiliating” to Hispanics and an illicit backdoor way to capture more illegal immigrants. The ruling by the Agriculture Department’s assistant secretary for civil rights could change policies nationwide as law enforcement agencies grapple with how far they can go in trying to help the Border Patrol while not running afoul of racial profiling standards. Assistant Secretary Joe Leonard Jr. said calling the Border Patrol automatically “escalates” encounters between Hispanics...

    In the 14th century Bubonic Plague killed about 25 million people inEurope. That same deadly disease is back and it has appeared inNew Mexico. There is good news and bad news about it’s immergence in our country: it can be treated which is good news; but the bad news is even treated cases will lead to a mortality rate of up to 15%. We have this medieval disease here in our midst thanks to Barack Obama’s open borders policy. Obama’s “immigration policy” is a fake just as he is. It is designed to appear to be “tough and effective” but...

    The federal government is handing out $4.2 billion a year to illegal aliens.This isn’t some service benefit that illegal aliens are receiving, like taxpayer-subsidized health care or education. And it’s not a tax deduction or a non-refundable tax credit, which would require recipients to actually pay taxes in order to receive the benefit. It’s a refundable tax credit, a taxpayer-funded check from the federal government. And the government requires no proof that the recipient is actually eligible under the law, which illegals are not.Abuse of this tax benefit is one of the most ridiculous examples of fraud adding to...

    Jurors reached a verdict Wednesday in the penalty phase of the murder trial of Pedro Espinoza, convicted of murdering Jamiel Shaw. The jury deliberated for less than two and a half hours before recommending the death penalty for Espinoza. Espinoza was convicted of fatally shooting Jamiel Shaw II, a 17-year-old star football player at Los Angeles High School. On March 2, 2008, Espinoza confronted and shot the teen in the abdomen and the head just a few doors away from Shaw's Arlington Heights home, thinking Shaw was a rival gang member. Espinoza, now 23, was convicted on May 9 of...

    As four separate wildfires devour the state of Arizona-burning more than 17,500 acres at last count-it’s instructive to look at how our government has handled its investigation into the two enormous ones which blazed a path of destruction across the state in 2011. According to the Arizona Daily Star, both the Horseshoe 2 and the Monument Fire were caused by humans, which in the case of national forests invariably means illegal aliens and/or Mexican narco-traffickers nesting within wilderness cordoned off from American citizens. The tragedy, which should elicit anger and frustration in anyone concerned about the environment and the lives...

    Even as California increasingly seems intent upon sinking into the abyss, there is some encouraging news to report from the Golden State. Most of you are familiar with the tragic story of Jamiel Shaw Jr., a bright, energetic young student-athlete from Los Angeles who was indiscriminately killed by a criminal alien while his mother was serving her country overseas. After four painful years of pursuing justice, the Shaw family can now take some comfort in the knowledge that the illegal alien gangbanger who murdered their son has been convicted by a California jury. I urge you all to listen to...
  • Federal Appeals Courts Say Illegal Aliens Have No 2nd Amendment Gun Rights

    The Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals has agreed with the Fifth Circuit Court this week in ruling that Illegal aliens have no right to own or possess a firearm while being here. The Firth Circuit had said earlier that illegal immigrants are not part of the "people" protected by the Second Amendment and have no constitutional right to bear arms. Emmanuel Huitron–Guizar entered a conditional guilty plea to being an illegal alien in possession of firearms. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison, and then will be deported when he finishes the sentence. According to the Court's opinion, “Mr....

    The House voted early Wednesday morning to stop the Obama administration's lawsuits against state immigration laws. The amendment, which strips funding so that the Justice Department cannot pursue the lawsuits, passed 238-173. Twelve Democrats voted for it, while six Republicans voted against it. The amendment specifically applies to laws in Arizona, Oklahoma, Missouri, Utah, Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Indiana. The Obama administration and immigrant-rights groups have sued to block laws in each of those states. "Instead of using tax dollars to sue states, the Department of Justice and other branches of this government should start focusing on enforcing existing...
