    U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) has identified 238 fraudulent cases of individuals claiming to be related in order to secure entry into the United States. Illegal aliens from Central and South America have been exploiting children to take advantage of loopholes in U.S. immigration policy. In April, the Family Fraud Initiative was launched by ICE, in conjunction with Homeland Security Investigations and U.S. Border Patrol, to investigate individuals posing as family members when applying for asylum in the United States. Under the policy known as "catch and release," families with minor children arriving to the United States are released...

    In the wake of the horrific mass shooting in El Paso, Texas, liberals have decided to ban another word: illegal immigrant. Despite the fact that it’s been used in the political lexicon for decades, it’s now seen as a call for violence…if you’re an unhinged liberal. In journalism, illegal immigrant (or alien) was used—and nothing happened. Why? Well, because there’s a special class of people who commit these mass shootings, most are mentally ill. And in the case of El Paso, the shooter seemed like a loser fuming over the fact he lost a job opportunity at a local store....
  • Judicial Watch: Sanctuary State Releases Unlicensed Illegal Immigrant Who Killed

    Less than a year after New Jersey’s Attorney General issued a directive making it an official sanctuary state, local police released an illegal immigrant who hit a grandmother and her two grandchildren while driving without a license. One of the children, a 7-year-old boy, was killed and the grandmother was critically injured. Nevertheless, the local law enforcement agency that arrested and charged the driver, 30-year-old Mexican national Jorge Rodriguez-Saldana, let him go.

    Congress is debating emergency humanitarian aid to care for migrants on the U.S.-Mexico border. The need is obvious. With virtually no barrier to stop them, thousands of migrants are crossing illegally into the United States every day. More than a million will come this year. U.S. law prevents border officials from quickly returning them. While they are being processed, some of the migrants, including children, are being kept temporarily in terrible conditions. American officials have an obligation to take care of them before those with no valid claim to be in the United States are returned to their home countries....

    The 2020 Democratic field for president might as well make ‘laws are only for the common folk’ their campaign slogan. Julian Castro, questioned by a woman who said an illegal immigrant stole her Social Security Number, had the crime dismissed out of hand by the White House hopeful. “He was caught and released on his on recognizance, and never to be heard from again,” she explained during a Fox News town hall Thursday night. “Would you be willing to penalize offenders taking advantage of Americans by having them not released if they’re known to be illegal?” the woman asked. Castro’s...

    Democrats in the state Legislature are finally getting their way. On Monday they passed a bill that would allow “undocumented” persons — illegal immigrants — the right to a driver’s license. Gov. Cuomo quickly signed the measure into law, fulfilling one of the top priorities of the left wing of the Democratic Party. But do New Yorkers understand the implications of this disastrous decision by the parliament of hacks in Albany?

    SAN BERNARDINO (Reuters) - A surge in migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border has pushed immigration detention facilities in California to capacity, forcing U.S. Border Patrol to release many at bus stations in the state for the first time, the agency said on Monday. U.S. Border Patrol in the El Centro area of southern California said it began to drop migrants off at San Bernardino’s Greyhound Station on Wednesday after it ran out of room to hold them.... ...Apprehensions of migrant families in California’s El Centro sector rose 383 percent in the seven months through April from a year earlier …...

    ICE nabs illegal immigrant who allegedly drove into California home, killing 3 sleeping family members A suspected drunken driver who was free on bail after being charged with plowing into a Northern California trailer home and killing three sleeping family members was in the U.S. illegally and was apprehended Tuesday, federal immigration agents announced. “Ismael Huazo-Jardinez is an illegally present Mexican national. The U.S. Border Patrol apprehended him in Arizona and granted him voluntary return to Mexico in February 2011. He illegally re-entered at some point thereafter,” U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Paul Prince said in a statement to...

    Police in California have arrested an illegal immigrant with known gang ties and an extensive criminal history in the February killing of a San Jose woman. Carlos Eduardo Arevalo Carranza, 24, was arrested Monday night in connection with the murder of 59-year-old Bambi Larson; police say he stalked her before stabbing her to death. Larson, a systems manager in San Jose, did not show up for work on Feb. 28. That seemed unusual to co-workers, who phoned her son to alert him.

    A man faces deportation to Malaysia, where homosexuality is illegal, after the Home Office said it did not believe he was gay – suggesting it was suspicious that he did not have a boyfriend. Yew Fook Sam, also known as Sam, claims he will be persecuted and imprisoned for his sexuality if he is deported to Malaysia, where homosexual acts are punishable under federal and sometimes sharia law. He fears he will be forced to undergo gay conversion therapy should he be returned to the country, where the opposition leader last year blamed gay people for causing earthquakes and a...

    The federal government partial shutdown drags on as politicians can’t agree on what to do with illegal aliens.   Trump wants a wall to keep out “illegal immigrants … bringing with them crime, tremendous amounts of crime,” but Democrats say that a wall is immoral and unnecessary. The media usually describe illegal aliens in glowing terms.  Many are undoubtedly good people, but new data I have obtained show that illegal aliens as a group are not very law-abiding.  The existing research is fatally flawed.  Most studies just examine all immigrants as a monolithic group, rather than separately studying legal and illegal...

    Congresswoman-Elect and Socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the gift that keeps on giving. No, seriously. She says some of the most ridiculous things imaginable. These are her top seven craziest political gaffes of 2018:7. In Ocasio-Cortez's mind, those riding the Central American caravan aren't "illegal aliens" but rather "refugees" who want to seek asylum.According to Ocasio-Cortez, journalists need to "fact-check" what they write about illegal immigrants. Probably because the facts don't back up her claim. Just look at what happened when the caravan arrived along the United States-Mexico border. Our border patrol agents were severely injured. And not everyone attempting to come to...

    The mother of slain University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts opened up her home to the teenage son of Mexican immigrants who worked with the man suspected of killing her daughter and left the small town because they feared it was unsafe. Laura Calderwood took in Ulises Felix, 17, after his parents left Brooklyn, Iowa, according to the Washington Post. The man accused of killing 20-year-old Tibbetts, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, worked with Felix’s parents at a dairy farm in the small town.

    Thousands of Central American caravan riders on Friday refused Mexico's offer of providing asylum status to those immigrants who applied and qualified. They vowed to continue their trek north to the United States around dawn on Saturday, NBC News reported. Under the plan, dubbed Estas en Tu Casa plan (translated to "This is Your Home"), asylum seekers would be given identifying documentation, jobs for adults and school for kids. The only catch was that they would have to stay in Mexico's two southernmost states of Chiapas and Oaxaca.The caravan riders to decided to turn down Mexico's offer, saying they've trekked too...

    ...Yesterday, the House Appropriations Committee, during a markup of the fiscal year 2019 DHS funding bill, voted to block the new USCIS guidance to properly interpret “credible fear” as fear of an individualized persecution by a government. As we noted before, this is the lynchpin of the entire border surge, and unless we properly interpret the law as written, the border surge, drugs, gangs, and all of the fiscal and social ills that come with them will never stop. Yet Rep. Kevin Yoder, R-Kan., — yes, that Kevin Yoder — gave his support to this Democrat amendment, and it passed...

    In San Francisco, immigrants who are in the country illegally are now eligible to register and vote in school board elections. Of course, this is clearly illegal under the California Constitution. Article II, Section 2 of the California Constitution says: “A United States citizen 18 years of age and resident in this State may vote.” However, the pro-illegal immigration, sanctuary state-supporting Democratic majority in the state Legislature has no interest in enforcing the law when it’s being ignored by fellow Democrats. After all, the long-range plans Democrats have for a ruling majority depend on continuous law- breaking to get enough...
