    A 61-year-old Louisville, Ky., man was sentenced Friday to life in federal prison for transporting dozens of illegal immigrants in a scorching hot tractor-trailer, after which 10 people were found dead inside the truck last July, according to the Justice Department. U.S. District Judge David A. Ezra of San Antonio sentenced James Matthew Bradley, Jr. to life in prison without parole, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Friday afternoon. Bradley had faced the death penalty. Shortly after midnight on July 23, San Antonio police responded to a call from the Walmart on Interstate 35 and found the tractor-trailer behind the store....

    In a case that looks likely to win in trial, a leftwing Obama-appointed judge has ruled that a 34-year-old Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipient, David Rodriguez, could lead a class-action lawsuit to force a Fortune 500 company, Procter & Gamble, to hire DACA recipients on the same basis as Americans and legal recipients. So much for the idea that DACA is just a stopgap measure of mercy, butressed only by President Obama's executive order, to help supposedly innocent children who were brought here illegally by their parents. The leftwing activists who brought this suit, the Chicano militants of the...

    President Trump is sending national guard troops to protect America’s southern border. Not only is this a great policy decision, but it’s a strategic one that puts America first. The troops will help secure the border from illegal immigration, a decision that will protect the American people from foreign and domestic threats. Trump has approached the very solemn duty of protecting the American people by doing what most politicians won’t: actually defending our borders. America is a sovereign nation, one that is discernible by its identifiable borders that must be secured and defended. Countries have gone to war over border...

    Patients at the St. Johns Well Child & Family Center in South Los Angeles have recently started asking for copies of their medical records. Some request extra medicine from their doctors, taking home as much as theyll supply. They want to have a stockpile, clinic Chief Executive Jim Mangia said. Theres this tremendous fear that on their way to take their kids to school, or on their way to the clinic, or on their way into the store, theyre going to get picked up and deported. Healthcare providers say President Trumps aggressive moves against illegal immigration are posing risks to...

    U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested 97 people after raiding a Tennessee meat processing plant, in what civil rights activists say was the largest crackdown at a single place in almost a decade. ICE spokeswoman Tammy Spicer announced the raid in a statement on Friday and said that of the 97 people taken into custody from Southeastern Provision meat processing plant in eastern Tennessee, 11 people were arrested on criminal charges, 54 were placed in detention and 32 were released. She said they were all arrested on suspicion of being in the country illegally.

    President Donald Trump slammed the nation's immigration laws on Thursday and said that women were being raped "at levels that nobody has ever seen before" in a caravan of migrants traveling from Central America to seek asylum in the United States. "Yesterday, it came out where this journey coming up, women are raped at levels that nobody has ever seen before," Trump told a roundtable on tax reform at the White Sulphur Springs Civic Center in West Virginia. The president did not explain his remarks further, only saying: "They don't want to mention that. So, we have to change our...

    The Mexican Senate passed a resolution seeking an end to bilateral cooperation with the U.S. against drug cartels and immigration problems after President Trump ordered National Guard troops to the border. The resolution was passed in a unanimous fashion and sent to the White House, Members of the U.S. Congress, and Mexicos Foreign Relations Officer, El Universal reported. Despite everything that is at stake in the relationship between our two countries, the way in which President Donald Trump has behaved is, for the Mexican people, unacceptable and intolerable, El Universal quoted from the document. The resolution demands that President Trump...

    Nearly 100 members of the notoriously violent MS-13 street gang were among the young immigrants admitted into the U.S. under the classification of unaccompanied minor during the past 11 months, according to recent government data. As CNS News reported, a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement study found 99 gang members had received the status, including nearly two-thirds who were also granted Special Immigrant Juvenile status. The immigrants arrested were targeted as part of ICEs Operation Matador, described by the agency as a unified effort to combat the proliferation of MS-13 and other transnational criminal gang activity in Long Island, the...

    What's Trump's "Secret Sauce?" Lets start with polls. The mainstream media lied to us again. Rasmussen is the only credible poll. They got the 2016 election right on the money. Sure enough, the latest Rasmussen poll is out. Trump is at 51% approval. Not only is that fantastic, its five points higher than Obama at the same time of his presidency. Its also telling that Trump's approval is 51, disapproval 48. More Americans approve than disapprove. But I thought the media says Trump is the most unpopular president in modern history? Liar, liar, pants on fire. But theres another poll...

    As a small army of unknown and unvetted immigrants from who-knows-where marches through Mexico to cross the border and enter the U.S. as refuges the MSM is more interested in the surprised looking Easter Bunny at the White House Easter Egg Roll. Because any day that provides them an opportunity to make fun of our President is a good day for the media.I guess they forgot the time the same traumatized bunny showed up with Bubba and BO. But then, for the MSM, the only history that matters is the history they report. And they dont remember ever reporting that...

    On Easter Sunday, President Trump heard about the thousands of illegal aliens who are marching through Mexico towards the U.S. border and, quite understandably, expressed his frustration with the development on Twitter by calling for congressional Republicans to act. Border Patrol Agents are not allowed to properly do their job at the Border because of ridiculous liberal (Democrat) laws like Catch & Release. Getting more dangerous. “Caravans” coming. Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to pass tough laws NOW. NO MORE DACA DEAL!— Donald J.

    Some weeks, there are just so many things happening that its hard to pick one focus for a column. Todays American crisis mosaic has so many facets that the whole is far worse than any of the parts. Here are six concerns that deserve our attention: 1. The proliferation of sanctuary states and cities that protect undocumented aliens must be addressed. By refusing to help ICE deport undocumented aliens who have committed crimes, they put American citizens and immigrants in danger. The US Supreme Court has already ruled that federal immigration laws supersede state laws in Arizona. Thankfully, California's...

    I really dont have anything to moan about today. Yesterday was lovely, 60 degrees, bright sunshine and a light breeze. This has been an unusually dry winter in the West with snowfall way below average. That bodes ill for the summer when fire danger will run high and reservoirs will run low. For now the ski resorts are still open but down in the valley the snow is gone, the hiking trails are getting busy and the annual migration has started.Easter Sunday along the Willow Creek trailI noted that there was some discussion yesterday about the migrating hoards.

    When I spoke at the Patriot Movement Arizona rally in early March, I heard a lot of people say “Make California America Again.” A former Navy seal who later ran for Congress made the same joke to me when he was out of state. “I’m not in California right now. I’m in America.”Those comments really incensed me, though. Four and a half million Californians voted for Trump in 2016. Even though the state legislature has gone full-tilt communist, Californians up and down the state are rising up against the state legislature, which has become destructive to the ends for which...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday pardoned five ex-convicts facing deportation, including two whose families fled the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia four decades ago. The pardons don't automatically stop deportation proceedings, but eliminate the state convictions federal authorities based their deportation decisions on. That gives the men's lawyers strong legal arguments before immigration judges to try to prevent the deportations. "The pardon does provide enormous benefit to immigrants facing deportation," said Anoop Prasad, an immigration staff attorney at Asian Law Caucus. Brown's intervention for the men among 56 pardoned marked the Democratic governor's third consecutive pardon round...

    At a Q&A session Monday night, Senate candidate Mitt Romney defended his conservatism saying he's tougher on some issues like immigration than the president, reports the Utah Daily Herald: "Im a deficit hawk. That makes me more conservative than a lot of Republicans and a lot of Democrats. Im also more of a hawk on immigration than even the president. My view was these DACA kids shouldnt all be allowed to stay in the country legally." Mitt Romney Background: Romney was pointing directly to President Trump's proposed plan that would have created a path to citizenship for...

    Were a nation of laws. We have federal immigration laws for a reason. The days of Ellis Island and Vito Corleones story are over. This is about ensuring people who come here arrive legally. Its to make sure terrorists dont have an open door into America. There is nothing racist about enforcing exiting immigration laws, but this is problematic for Democrats. Part of it is the partys aversion to white people. Another aspect is that Democrats see millions in untapped voter potential with all the illegals that are here. They want open borders. They dont want enforcement, and they certainly...
