Rodriguez, a voter in Arizona, said she cast her vote because of immigration. "I was motivated to vote by my mother, who is not able to vote, as soon as my ballot arrived at home," Rodriguez said. "She was like here it is, Stephanie, you can do it!"

    Smooth move, Brainiac You’re supposed to believe that every impulse to crack down on illegal immigration is rooted in nothing more than abject racism. Never mind the fact that illegals come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and nationalities. If you want to enforce America’s border security laws, you’re a “phobe” who hates the “brown people.” At least that’s the moronic story that progressives try to peddle.

They arrive, they’re given stuffed animals by Glenn Beck & Ted Cruz, and then they’re…well…where do they go then? They certainly aren’t being deported. So just what happens to them after they’re given their complementary Steiff bear? According to the AP they go to…other illegals. The vast majority of immigrant children who arrive alone at the U.S. border are placed by the government with adults who are in the country illegally, federal data reviewed by The Associated Press...

The Eritrean fled persecution in his war-ravaged country, survived nearly drowning at sea, faced kidnap by ISIS, starvation and dehydration and made it to Britain by hanging on to the outside of a Eurostar train. But he has turned his nose up at the UK and its goodwill by telling he expected MORE from the country putting a roof over his head at the expense of the taxpayer. The asylum seeker...

    A Mexican immigrant married to an American citizen hasn’t seen his wife in a year — all because his tattoos made him look like a criminal, his family says. Ruben Zamora, 29, has lived in the U.S. since he was 8 years old — and when he left the country in July 2014, he expected to be able to return to his wife and two children within weeks, his lawyers said. Instead, his request to return from Mexico was denied, because officials at the American Consulate said he has gang tattoos — and, therefore, was part of a criminal enterprise....

A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday. Gunadique’s attorneys requested a new trial, asserting that evidence from a key witness against Guandique was false or misleading and claiming that a new trial would serve the “interests of justice.” In May, prosecutors agreed to a new trial despite the fact that they thought that Guandique’s conviction was justified. In June, a judge ruled that a...

And some of the greatest government health minds in the country say they have no idea what’s causing it. At the same time, during the past four months, at least 12 children have died after falling ill with a respiratory virus called Enterovirus D-68 (EV-D68). Again, federal health officials are at a loss to explain the origin of the epidemic. Are the mysterious outbreaks linked? The Centers for...

In 2013, only 1,800 of the 38,759 unaccompanied children who entered the country illegally were deported.

    Some good news at last. The illegal immigrant crisis has been solved. The UC Berkeley student government has banned the term “illegal immigrant” from its discourse, deeming the phrase racist, offensive, unfair and derogatory. In an unanimous vote, student senators passed a resolution that stated the word “illegal” is “racially charged,” “dehumanizes” people, and contributes to “punitive and discriminatory actions aimed primarily at immigrants and communities of color.” The resolution passed 18-0; therefore, we no longer have any illegal immigrants in this country, because there is no longer such a thing as an illegal immigrant.

Also from the editorial: "Fewer than 500 undocumented students attend Oklahoma's public colleges and universities.

    Does America lack "compassion" and "humanity" for uninvited foreigners? Quite the contrary. While open-borders activists rail against "injustice" and demand new "pathways to citizenship," official U.S. policy rewards countless line-jumpers with permanent residency and taxpayer-subsidized benefits. Case in point: the massive "Temporary Protected Status" (TPS) program run by the Department of Homeland Security. In theory, as the DHS website describes it, the Secretary of Homeland Security "may designate a foreign country for TPS due to conditions in the country that temporarily prevent the country's nationals from returning safely, or in certain circumstances, where the country is unable to handle the...
  • The Open-Borders Reporters Who Banned "Illegal Immigrant"

    File this in the overflowing cabinet labeled: No Wonder the Mainstream Media Is Dying. On Tuesday, the Associated Press announced that it is banishing the phrase "illegal immigrant" from its famous stylebook. The world's largest newsgathering outlet now advises reporters that "illegal" will "only refer to an action, not a person." AP directs writers not to use the terms "illegal alien, an illegal, illegals or undocumented" anymore, except "in direct quotations." It won't be long before illegal border crossers, illegal visa overstayers, illegal deportation evaders, document fraudsters and illegal alien traffickers are all referred to as "our fellow Americans." Without...

    NEWARK, N.J. - An illegal immigrant from Nigeria admitted Friday he assumed the identity of a murdered man so he could work at Newark's airport, where he was a security supervisor for 20 years. He now faces possible deportation. Bimbo Oyewole, 54, pleaded guilty in state court to using a fake security badge under a plea deal in which prosecutors agreed to recommend he receive probation. He had been charged with identity theft when he was arrested in May. He will be jailed pending sentencing Oct. 19. The state attorney general's office, which prosecuted the case, said Oyewole faces potential...

    We all know President Obama is rewriting our immigration law on his own. He has issued new orders that grant certain illegal immigrants a waiver to deportation. Details of this new policy was released on Friday and for the paltry sum of $465, illegal immigrants that were brought to the United States as children can apply for a waiver and a work permit. In other words, trading illegal status for legal status. Sounds like a good deal, at least for them. In regards to these new immigration rules, ie. selective enforcement of current immigration law, we are learning about a...
  • Rich Hispanic Exec Wants to Eradicate The Term ‘Illegal Immigrant’

    A wealthy Hispanic executive who makes a fortune dealing with the Hispanic market is on the march to eradicate the term “illegal immigrant.” Charles Patrick Garcia, writing on the CNN website, lauds the U.S. Supreme Court for eschewing the use of “illegal immigrant” and instead utilizing the term “removable alien.” Garcia writes: The court's nonjudgmental language established a humanistic approach to our current restructuring of immigration policy. When you label someone an "illegal alien" or "illegal immigrant" or just plain "illegal," you are effectively saying the individual, as opposed to the actions the person has taken, is unlawful. The terms...

    (CNN) -- Last month's Supreme Court decision in the landmark Arizona immigration case was groundbreaking for what it omitted: the words "illegal immigrants" and "illegal aliens," except when quoting other sources. The court's nonjudgmental language established a humanistic approach to our current restructuring of immigration policy. When you label someone an "illegal alien" or "illegal immigrant" or just plain "illegal," you are effectively saying the individual, as opposed to the actions the person has taken, is unlawful. The terms imply the very existence of an unauthorized migrant in America is criminal. In this country, there is still a presumption of...

    Charles Garcia — the CEO of Garcia Trujillo, a strategy firm that works with Hispanic-owned companies — does not like the term illegal immigrant. He prefers economic refugee. He is not alone. Media Matters for America, the liberal website “dedicated to . . . correcting conservative misinformation,” claimed that Fox News used President Obama’s June 15 immigration announcement as an “opportunity to dehumanize undocumented immigrants.” MMFA reported that Fox News used the term illegals 17 times during its June 15 broadcast, illegal aliens twice, and aliens once, not including uses of these terms in on-screen text. These “racial slurs” are...
