    Newly released government data shows 98 percent of families who were apprehended after illegally entering the United States from Mexico in fiscal year 2017 were never deported and remain in the country. In that fiscal year, which ended Sept. 30, 2017, 94,285 people unlawfully crossed the southwest border from Mexico and claimed to be a "family unit" from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, according to Department of Homeland Security information shared with the Washington Examiner. Of that group, around 1,500 people have been removed from the country, or about 1.5 percent of the total. DHS spokeswoman Katie Waldman said legal...

    Migrant families who were separated at the U.S.–Mexico border under the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy are suing the Trump administration to cover the costs of their mental health treatment, according to a new federal class-action lawsuit. The lawsuit, filed this week by a group of lawyers in federal court, argues that migrant children and their families suffered trauma that was "life altering" and that will "continue to affect their mental and emotional well-being for years to come" as a result of being separated, CNN reported. The lawsuit also seeks unspecified financial compensation for the families affected by the now-reversed...

    Some migrant parents separated from their children at the U.S. border and deported back home are refusing to be reunited with their children because their countries are too dangerous, the American Civil Liberties Union told a court on Friday. “We’ve had very difficult conversations with the parents this week,” ACLU lawyer Lee Gelernt told a federal judge in San Diego, according to Reuters. “As much as they want to be with their child, and it’s heartbreaking, they feel it’s too dangerous.” Gelernt told the court that he attempted to contact the parents of some 300 children from Guatemala, and of...
  • Kavanaugh Rejects Sen. Durbin’s Claim that Illegal Immigrants Can Form Unions

    Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin argued that illegal immigrants can join unions, and suggested that a 2008 decision by Judge Brett Kavanaugh shows he is hostile to “immigrants.” Kavanaugh countered by arguing that his 2008 dissent complied with the Supreme Court’s Sure-Tan decision in 1984. In the 2008 case, two other judges outvoted Kavanaugh and said the 1984 Sure-Tan decision allowed illegal migrants to join unions.

    ROCKPORT, Texas — On Saturday, in an area just north of Holiday Beach in Aransas County, ‘two highly valued canines were destroyed’ by suspects believed to be in the country illegally, a Texas Sheriff says. The two tracking dogs were a part of a kennel belonging to Joe Bramen from Refugio County that have in the past been instrumental in locating individuals with Dementia and Alzheimer’s that wondered away from their homes. The dogs were deployed to assist Aransas and Refugio County Deputies, DPS Troopers and a large contingent of Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Wardens who had responded to...
  • Mollie Tibbetts’ dad: Don’t use my daughter’s death to promote ‘racist’ views

    Tibbetts’ dad Rob took to the paper’s pages Saturday to lambast those who cynically use the murder to score political points — using Trump Jr.’s own words against him. “I encourage the debate on immigration; there is great merit in its reasonable outcome. But do not appropriate Mollie’s soul in advancing views she believed were profoundly racist. The act grievously extends the crime that stole Mollie from our family and is, to quote Donald Trump Jr., ‘heartless’ and ‘despicable,’” he wrote. It was the only time he mentioned Trump Jr. by name in the column, published in the same paper...

    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren protested the treatment of illegal immigrants following the murder of Mollie Tibbetts during an interview with CNN on Wednesday. “The person who allegedly murdered her [Tibbetts] is an undocumented immigrant. Mike Pence and the president have suggested the laws need to be stronger so people like this were not in the country,” CNN’s John Berman told Warren. The Senator very quickly expressed her condolences to the Tibbetts family before pivoting to a more broad topic on how the United States treats illegal immigrants. “Last month, I went down to the border, and I saw where children...

    A new report by the Washington Post chronicles the stories of multiple illegal aliens who were living in the United States and have now decided to self deport to Canada in order to avoid deportation. In one case highlighted by the Washington Post, an illegal alien single mother from Eritrea with two U.S.-born anchor babies decided to flee Las Vegas and head to Canada after she was denied asylum. “So now I am here just hoping it gets better,” Mesfin said as she pushed the stroller, while trying to manage her toddler, toward Canada.

    I honestly think you should retrace your steps and vindicate your father's good name, lest you go on record as dividing your own family Ivanka, Are you deliberately attempting to discredit the good work of your father? Regardless of how you intended your televised comment about the separation of families being the “low point” of your White House experience, the public will most certainly take this as a slam against his immigration policy.

    Ivanka Trump broke with her father’s administration on Thursday, calling President Donald Trump’s policy of separating families at the U.S.-Mexico border a “low point” during her time in the White House, and saying she "vehemently" opposed the policy. “That was a low point for me as well. I feel very strongly about that, and I am very vehemently against family separation and the separation of parents and children, so I would agree with that sentiment,” she said when asked about the policy at Axios’s “Conversation on Workforce Development” Forum. “I think immigration is incredibly complex as a topic," she added....

I have been a proud employee at GEO for more than 20 years, and currently serve as the facility administrator of the Aurora ICE Processing Center, which was established in 1986 on a contract with ICE’s predecessor, the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS).

    The City of Brotherly Love doesn’t have much love for federal immigration officials, but they apparently love them some illegal aliens. The city’s new mayor announced this week that a contract which allows Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials to access a database of municipal arrest information as it happens will not be renewed. He went on to complain that the agency was “misusing” the information to persecute people unjustly or something. (Associated Press) Philadelphia will stop giving U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement access to a real-time arrest database, saying the agency is misusing the information to conduct sweeps in which...

    U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions came to Boston yesterday to throw a spotlight on what he called “theft from America” by 25 mostly illegal immigrants charged with massive government fraud that’s being blamed on shoddy oversight by the Registry of Motor Vehicles. “Operation Double Trouble” accounted for $200,000 in heisted Medicare, unemployment and public housing benefits. One of the suspects, the feds said, is a convicted killer who escaped from prison in Puerto Rico. “Across this city and across America, teachers, truck drivers, construction workers are going to work and paying taxes that are being stolen from the public treasury...

    <p>Abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement is becoming a litmus test for liberal Democrats. It’s insane. It’s not serious, but it makes the Left look totally unhinged, so grab some popcorn. The calls to abolish this federal law enforcement agency has grown since the child separation issue blew up at the border; families being separated upon arrest for trying to illegally enter the U.S., which is a crime. Also, many a human trafficker feigns family status, hence why adults and children are separated. Obama had the same policy. Yet, with the Trump administration actually trying to enforce federal immigration laws, the lurch to the Left on immigration from liberals has manifested itself with this call to abolish ICE. Immigration and abortion are two of the most explicit examples of how Democrats, liberals, progressives, and other groups that wallow in this left-wing cesspool have moved outside of the mainstream. The whole campaign is nuts, and with it, comes the usual tinges of self-righteousness that’s unavoidable with liberals. But you see, because their cause is just, some think it’s a license to use racist language to accomplish their ends.</p>

    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...

    Woman almost loses leg after infection, disease blamed on pedicure NASHVILLE, Tenn.

The next day, she said that she had body chills, nausea, and dizziness. She tried to sleep it off but when she woke up her leg had swollen to three times its size.

    (Reuters) - A federal judge said on Friday the U.S. government had made “very promising” progress toward reuniting some 2,500 immigrant children separated from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border as part of a crackdown on illegal immigration. {snip} Nearly 850 parents had been interviewed and cleared for reunification as of Thursday and another 229 parents had been deemed ineligible because of criminal records, or because they “waived” reunification or for other reasons, the report said. The rest are pending review. More than 850 parents are facing final deportation orders, government lawyers told the court on Friday.

    “No Borders! No Nations! No Deportations!” “Abolish ICE!” Before last week, these were the mindless slogans of an infantile left, seen on signs at rallies to abolish ICE, the agency that arrests and deports criminal aliens who have no right to be in our country. By last week, however, “Abolish ICE!” was no longer the exclusive slogan of the unhinged left. National Democrats were signing on. Before his defeat in New York’s 14th Congressional District, Joe Crowley, fourth-ranked Democrat in the House, called ICE a “fascist” organization.
