    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...
  • Immigration judges hit back at Sessions for suggesting they show too much sympathy

    A union representing the country's 350 immigration judges slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions for comments he made that suggested they were sidestepping the law and showing too much sympathy when handling certain cases. “When we depart from the law and create nebulous legal standards out of a sense of sympathy for the personal circumstances of a respondent in our immigration courts, we do violence to the rule of law and constitutional fabric that bind this great nation," Sessions said Monday in a speech to newly hired judges. "Your job is to apply the law — even in tough cases." Immigration...
  • Assaults on ICE, Border Patrol surge as illegal immigrants get more violent

    Assaults on ICE agents reached a decade high in 2017, and assaults on Border Patrol agents have also surged in recent years, according to new government numbers that seem to back up agents’ claims that illegal immigrants are increasingly looking to fight rather than flee. The new numbers, reported by Homeland Security’s inspector general, could even be underselling the problem, investigators said, because the government doesn’t do a good job of tracking incidents, and agents and officers don’t always report them properly. But the report does signal renewed danger particularly on the southwest border, where agents say a surge in...

    Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms on Thursday signed an executive order declaring that the city jail will no longer accept people detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). "Atlanta has permanently ended its acceptance of ICE detainees and will immediately transfer all those remaining out of our City jail," Bottoms tweeted with a photo of her signing the order. "We will not be complicit in an immigration policy that intentionally inflicts misery on vulnerable populations." A spokesperson for ICE confirmed to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that all of the agency's detainees at the Atlanta City Detention Center would be transferred by...

    Illegal immigration must be combated with resolve. We cannot allow the issue to be framed by amnesty advocates as a referendum on Emma Lazarus’ poem “The New Colossus,” inscribed on the Statue of Liberty, with its famous line, “Give me your tired, your poor ...” As again evidenced last week with the alleged murder of Mollie Tibbetts at the hands of an undocumented immigrant, there are violent criminals among the many who cross the border. No state is immune from crimes committed by illegal immigrants, certainly not Massachusetts. Yesterday brought news that a man was arrested in Texas and is...

    Hillary Clinton slammed the Trump administration Tuesday afternoon over the administration's zero tolerance immigration policy and family separations, issuing a rare series of tweets aimed at President Trump without directly mentioning him. In the messages, Clinton pointed out that more than 500 migrant children remain separated from their parents weeks after the administration missed a deadline to complete the reunification process. "There's a lot going on right now—understatement of the year. The separation of families and the failure of the administration to reunite them has been eclipsed in the news in recent days, but these tragic circumstances persist," Clinton wrote....

    Immigrants living in California without full legal status could serve in some appointed offices under a bill the state Senate sent Gov. Jerry Brown on Friday. The measure, passed by the Senate 26-11, would let people over 18 who lack authorization to live in the country be appointed to boards and commissions. Sen. Ricardo Lara, who authored the bill, says it would overturn laws designed to exclude immigrants from civic life.

    Mollie Tibbetts, a 20-year-old sophomore at the University of Iowa, was last seen alive while jogging the evening of July 18. This week, authorities said that she was killed and that her body was dumped in a cornfield. On Tuesday, the police arrested a Mexican immigrant named Cristhian Bahena Rivera as a suspect. A warrant filed by the Poweshiek County Sheriff's Office said Rivera confessed to the police that he pursued Tibbetts and later concealed her body. The police charged Rivera with first-degree murder, which in Iowa comes with a possible penalty of life in prison. By Wednesday, law-enforcement officials...

    Full headline: STATS: Mollie Tibbetts’ death by an illegal alien was tragic but the really bad news is she’s far from the only one Heartbreaking: News this week that 20-year-old University of Iowa sophomore Mollie Tibbetts had her life prematurely ended by an illegal alien who appears to have been taken with her romantically is tragic and sad on so many levels, not the least of which was the fact that much of the nation tuned in daily to see if authorities had made any progress in locating her after she went missing a month ago. That she was eventually...
  • The November Election Is About Illegal Alien Crime

    If you’re cool with Americans being butchered by illegal aliens, this November you should vote Democrat. They’re certainly cool with Americans being butchered by illegal aliens. Oh, in theory they would probably prefer that the foreigners sneaking into our country in defiance of the laws we American citizens made through our elected representatives would stop butchering Americans. They don’t particularly want your kids to be butchered. They just want uncontrolled illegal immigration more than your kids’ safety. So, they’ve made a choice to be the party of illegal immigration. And the resulting body count is a price Democrats are willing to...

    President Trump on Tuesday seized on news that an undocumented immigrant was charged in the death of an Iowa college student to underscore his push for stricter immigration laws. "You heard about today with the illegal alien coming in, very sadly, from Mexico, and you saw what happened to that incredible, beautiful young woman. Should’ve never happened," Trump said at a rally in Charleston, W.Va. "We’ve had a huge impact but the laws are so bad," he continued. "The immigration laws are such a disgrace. We’re getting them changed, but we have to get more Republicans." Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24,...

    An illegal alien who was arrested in southern California while taking his pregnant wife to the hospital is wanted for murder in Mexico, immigration authorities said Saturday. Joel Arrona Lara, 36, was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers on Wednesday at a gas station in San Bernardino, California. At the time, Arrona was taking his wife, Maria del Carmen Venegas, to the hospital for a scheduled cesarean section, CBS 2 Los Angeles reported. News of Arrona Lara’s arrest quickly spread nationally, with several media outlets characterizing it as an example of the Trump administration’s heavy-handed crackdown on illegal...

    These week’s example of Leftist Logic. From Ed Driscoll, highlights mine: New York City Removes Trash Cans on the Upper West Side: What happened to the baskets? Did they get removed in anticipation of some windy weather? Surely the Department of Sanitation [DSNY] would soon restore the baskets – thereby easing the overflow trash – she thought.A neighbor who shared her concerns called 311 and was told that the baskets had been removed because people leaving Riverside Park were putting their trash in them. “You can’t make this up,” says Melissa.Nope.Counterintuitive as it may seem, DSNY says having fewer trash...

    Have you ever asked yourself why Progressive activists demonstrate so much compassion for illegal immigrants they have never met while treating fellow citizens that disagree with them so badly? The truth is they have little compassion, It is but an act. They are actually hate-filled misanthrops, full of rage. Progressive activists exhibit the stereotypical virtue signalling, false compassion and rage of a pathological narcissist. True compassion isn't situational. Kind people are kind to everyone, they don't profess how much they care about illegal immigrants they have never met while calling their fellow citizens racists and Nazis. Narcissists are pathologically driven...

    Credible fear findings in expedited removal proceedings are plummeting, and this may just be the beginning of a campaign to reduce the demand for asylum hearings. In expedited removal proceedings, aliens are deported after an interview with an immigration officer, without further proceedings, unless they express a fear of returning to their own countries. If they can convince an asylum officer that they have a credible fear of persecution or that it is more likely than not that they will be tortured if they return to their own countries, they will be scheduled for an asylum hearing before an immigration...
