    President-elect Donald Trump ran on a platform of being extremely tough on immigration. One of his vows to voters was that he’d get rid of President Barack Obama’s executive actions, which could include those that provided protections to young undocumented immigrants from being deported. One Republican lawmaker and Trump critic is now prepping legislation that would keep those protections in place in case Trump moves forward with his pledge. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has said he is working with both Democrats and Republicans in order to protect immigrants, known as Dreamers, who willingly came forward to give their information in...

    Immigrant communities across the country — including South Florida — are in a state of panic. We can’t blame them. They have a right to be fearful of what the future holds under President-elect Donald Trump and the encouragement he offered to the kind of haters who seem to enjoy shouting the mantra “deport ’em all.” The atmosphere of hate that came into the open during the campaign has exploded since Mr. Trump’s victory. In a six-day period beginning Nov. 9, the day after the election, the Southern Poverty Law Center recorded 437 reports of hateful intimidation and harassment, 136...
  • Obama's DOJ Fines Denver Sheriff Department For Not Hiring Non-Citizens

    President Obama’s Justice Department is penalizing the Denver Sheriff Department for making U.S. citizenship a requirement for applicants. The sheriff’s department will now have to pay a $10,000 fine for its hiring practices in 2015 and 2016. Additionally, the DOJ is requiring them to comb through old applications for those who were disqualified for being a non-citizen and consider those people for future positions. “The Justice Department’s investigation found that from approximately Jan. 1, 2015, until approximately March 23, 2016, the Denver Sheriff Department discriminated based on citizenship status by requiring applicants for deputy sheriff positions to be U.S. citizens...

The person apologized for the call for an election that is five months in the future. Asked probing questions, without asking me outright, as to whether or not I was a dem or gop. "How would you rate President Obama's job performance?" and then, "How would you say Donald Trump will perform as President?"

    The children of undocumented immigrants comprise a growing percentage of school children in the United States, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. The share of kindergarten though 12th grade students in public and private schools with at least one undocumented parent has increased from 3.2 percent in 1995 to 6.6 percent in 2009 to 7.3 percent in 2014, Pew reports. As of 2014, there were about 3.9 million K-12 students with undocumented immigrant parents in the nation’s grade schools — up from 3.6 million in 2009. ...more...

    In many ways, California is the antithesis of Donald Trump’s America. While Trump rode a wave of anti-establishment, working-class white votes to the White House, California’s relatively diverse electorate, with well-established elites in Hollywood and Silicon Valley, roundly rejected him while passing liberal-favored ballot measures, including legalized recreational marijuana and a ban on plastic bags. The presidency, House of Representatives and U.S. Senate are under Republican control. But in California, Democrats hold all statewide offices and majorities in the state’s congressional delegation and the state Legislature.Trump takes a hard line on immigration, vowed to repeal Obamacare and has dismissed climate...

He said, 'no, only people who have committed crimes and only until all of that has been taken care of do we look at what we do next,'" Priebus said during an appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe after Election Day.

    The southwest border has cracked open over the last year as illegal immigrants into the U.S. spiked some 23 percent, according to the latest Homeland Security numbers released Monday. Nearly 409,000 illegal immigrants were nabbed at the border in fiscal 2016 — up from about 331,000 a year earlier — and Homeland Security officials say the increased arrests also means an increase in the number that are sneaking by them. Worse yet, the number of illegal immigrants traveling as families, fleeing rough conditions in Central America and enticed by the promise of lax enforcement in the U.S., reached a record...

    This year, alone, apprehensions by Border Patrol in New Mexico have surged to 18,500 people in the 11 months through August, compared with 11,216 in all of fiscal 2015. Many of the migrants are from Central America like Alex, a 30-year-old farmworker. About 7,900 of the migrants apprehended this year in New Mexico are classified by Border Patrol as “other than Mexican,” mostly from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and, lately, Brazil – and they have accounted for much of the increase. The strength of the U.S. dollar, which makes basic goods more expensive in Latin America; stagnant wages and few...

The banner is of Hillary hugging what appears to be a young Latino girl, in front of a wall festooned with posters reading “Estoy contigo.” Translation: “I’m with you.” So when it comes to immigration, Hillary’s not with Americans worried about losing jobs and...

Keep that in mind when reading about the latest lowlight in government competence from DHS, courtesy of the Associated Press. Not only did the massive Cabinet department fail to coordinate properly on tracking over 800 illegal immigrants, many of whom had outstanding deportation warrants, they gave them American citizenship. And guess where many originated? The U.S. government has mistakenly granted citizenship to at least 858 immigrants from countries of concern to national security or with high rates of immigration fraud...

    While Donald Trump doubled down this week on his vow to make Mexico pay for his proposed southern border wall, his campaign is reported to be weighing options that don’t necessarily involve the seemingly far-fetched scenario of the Mexican government handing America a great, big check. LifeZette first reported that the Republican presidential nominee and his top advisers are looking at using assets seized from drug cartels and other traffickers. This reportedly could involve establishing a “joint border security fund” -- holding seized assets from crackdowns on both sides of the border – for border construction and maintenance.

    After two weeks spent waffling on immigration, and making noises on the subject largely indistinguishable from those of Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio, Donald Trump has settled on a hawkish position — and a practical one. Trump’s crowd-pleasing antics aside, in his immigration speech in Phoenix, Ariz., on Wednesday he laid out a sensible, realistic path forward on genuine immigration reform. Trump’s plan, even in its most primitive iterations, always has been based on the entirely commonsensical principle that America’s immigration policy should serve American interests. Taking this as a starting point, Trump laid out a ten-point policy that emphasizes...

    A golden moment from his interview with our Townhall cousin, Guy Benson. Watch him get genuinely pissy at around 4:00 when Guy, very politely, presses him on why the term “illegal” is so troubling. What we’re left with here is a third-party candidate who’s hyper-libertarian on immigration, of all issues, but not so libertarian on, for example, a carbon tax or whether business owners should be forced to cater gay weddings. That’s his pitch to conservatives who have been alienated by Trump: Possibly some new taxes, certainly less religious liberty, and all the amnesty you can eat. There’s no reason...

    I'm beginning to think that Donald Trump was right when he said that he could "stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody" and not lose support among certain segments of the population. The man who crafted a campaign around two primary issues--illegal immigration and trade--just caved on the first of these. After months of being the toughest talker on illegal immigration, he's basically come around to the establishment's way of thinking--namely, that there are just too many lawbreakers out there to do anything about it now. Trump maintains that if he's elected president he will still build...

    Under a revamped Obama administration program intended to encourage greater cooperation from local law enforcement agencies in helping deport illegal immigrants who the government considers “a danger” to public safety, fewer people are being taken into custody for eventual removal from the country. In November 2014, the administration introduced the Priority Enforcement Program (PEP), a less demanding version of a previous system that had been accused of violating immigrants’ civil rights, and did not differentiate between low-level and serious offenders. The old program, called Secure Communities, influenced a number of local jurisdictions — known as “sanctuary cities” — to not...

Broken down, this means the federal government sent about 132 illegal alien children per day to live in American neighborhoods during the month of April.

    The Supreme Court momentarily impeded President Obama's attempt to "fundamentally transform America" last week with its 4-4 vote on his executive amnesty action plan. When the court is deadlocked, previous decisions by lower courts are allowed to stand. In this case, Obama lost because the lower court found that his plan exceeded his executive authority, which is actually what Obama himself said before he decided to do it. The evenly divided court apparently couldn't make up its mind as to whether the president is permitted to act like a dictator and suspend laws he doesn't like. That's a tough question,...

And so it is that Joe Biden, the Vice-President of the United States, traveled to Ireland to imply that Donald Trump is ‘un-American.” For good measure, when it comes to illegal immigration, Biden proclaimed a preference for “bridges” over “walls.” Think about that.

    The suspect charged with murder in connection with a vacant building fire in Los Angeles was in the United States illegally and had a string of arrests to his name -- but the feds never deported him, officials said Friday. Johnny Sanchez, a 21-year-old citizen of Honduras, was initially arrested in 2012 for crossing the southeastern California border illegally, the Los Angeles Times reported. Authorities said they released him because he had no criminal history or previous immigration violations at the time. He was arrested again in January on suspicion of domestic violence and twice in the ensuing months on...

    In a surprising discovery, the Palm Beach Post first reported that according to state records, Orlando shooter Omar Mateen - who as we reported earlier was licensed as a security guard and also holds a firearms license - was employed by the US subsidiary of G4S plc, a British multinational security services company, whose US-headquarters are located in Jupiter, Fla, and which also happens to be the world's largest security company by revenue. ... But where it gets more disturbing is that as Judicial Watch reported several days ago, in a post titled, "DHS Quietly Moving, Releasing Vanloads Of Illegal...

    Almost a half-million acres in southern New Mexico were designated as a national monument two years ago. Now, members of the state's congressional delegation are pushing for portions of the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks area to be set aside as wilderness. While praised by environmentalists, the effort is reigniting the concerns of local law enforcement about their ability to access the area to fight crime. The legislation introduced by Sens. Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich, both Democrats, would set aside more than 376 square miles - or nearly half of the monument - as wilderness. ... The Southwestern Border Sheriffs' Coalition...

    State Democrats forged ahead with legislation designed to fill out Covered California’s enrollment ranks with unlawful and undocumented immigrants. Following the state Senate, the Assembly has “passed a measure that would remove a critical barrier to Covered California and allow all Californians to access the state health insurance marketplace, regardless of immigration status,” as State of Reform noted.

    A House Democrat criticized his Republican colleagues for blocking several of his Wednesday night attempts to stop the Library of Congress from using the term “illegal alien.” In a series of tweets Thursday, Rep. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, blasted the House Rules Committee that voted down a series of amendments allowing the Library of Congress to refer to undocumented immigrants as “unauthorized noncitizens” rather than “illegal aliens.” -snip In an earlier tweet, Castro argued that “Congress has never interfered” with similar proposals before and that Republicans were “making history to preserve a dehumanizing term.” House Republicans included a provision in a...

    The Christian Science Monitor ^ | June 10, 2016 | Peter Grier
    Building a wall is one of Donald Trump's big applause lines. But why? Some research surveys suggest that many Trump followers aren’t so much anti-Hispanic as they are worried about the perceived effect of immigration on their culture and pocketbooks. Donald Trump’s supporters have negative views about immigrants, particularly those who entered the United States illegally. That’s not a news flash. Mr. Trump’s vow to build a wall along the southern border – financed by Mexico – remains one of his biggest rally applause lines. But what, specifically, is behind this anger? Is there anything about undocumented immigration that even...

    While I, in principle, agree with Trump's plan to build a wall on our southern border and make Mexico pay for it, fact is that last part is what's making this all controversial. If you look at the poll numbers, its obvious that Trump's plan himself is not popular http://www.pollingreport.com/immigration.htm but if you look back before Trump ran, http://www.pollingreport.com/immigration2.htm , building a wall was mostly favored by the American people http://www.pollingreport.com/immigration2.htm That making Mexico pay for it, and calling out their government for allowing their people to cross, was the big political mistake. While the Mexican government is somewhat complicit,...

    LOS ANGELES, California — Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) spoke at a town hall meeting on immigration reform at the Casa del Mexicano on Saturday, where he was embraced by members of the local Hispanic community. “Welcome to Oaxacafornia,” said a Oaxacan woman, referring to the impoverished region of Mexico from which many immigrants come. Sanders began by speaking about Friendship Park on the Mexico-U.S. border in San Diego, calling it “a very sad fence. The fence and the screening is so tight that the only contact a husband and wife and mother and child can have is by sticking their...

    Tuberculosis: The Deadly Disease of Political Correctness We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.—Barack Obama, October 30, 2008 According to the latest Census, illegal immigration has exploded 57 percent in less than two years, with at least 550,000 new undocumented aliens pouring into America in a trend that is set to continue growing.

    A disturbing video surfaced Monday of a girl telling her parents at the dinner table, “We’re going to kill Donald Trump.” But the girl is reportedly only three-years old, and obviously doesn’t know who Trump is — the words were “put in her mouth” by her parents who kept encouraging her to repeat the sick statement. The original video was picked up by Mark Dice, who reposted it on his YouTube channel after blurring out the girl’s face — something the parents didn’t bother doing. After she made that declaration, you can hear her mother asking why he has to...
