  • Kearns says auto bureaus won't process licenses for undocumented immigrants (Erie County Clerk)

    05/23/2018 6:06:52 AM PDT · by lowbridge · 12 replies ^ | May 17, 2018 | Mark Sommer and Maki Becker 
    Undocumented immigrants would not be allowed to get driver's licenses if Erie County Clerk Mickey Kearns has his way. Kearns, who is running for reelection, made his preemptive declaration at a press conference Thursday. He cited a bill in the State Legislature that would allow undocumented immigrants to get driver's licenses. The bill's prospects, however, are uncertain, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo has been non-committal on the issue. "The current bill would allow undocumented immigrants to get a New York State driver's license by showing a foreign passport without a valid U.S. visa stamp and an affidavit, waiving the necessity to...
  • Jeff Sessions ends Obama-era ‘de facto’ court amnesty for illegal immigrants

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a directive to immigration judges Thursday telling them they can no longer shunt deportation cases off onto permanent wait lists and leave illegal immigrants free to roam the U.S. Known as administrative closure, the wait list had become a favorite tactic of the Obama administration, serving to protect low-priority illegal immigrants from deportation. Rather than pursue those cases, government attorneys would propose — and judges would grant — administrative closure by shipping more than 200,000 cases to the suspension list in what analysts said became a de facto amnesty. Mr. Sessions, flexing his attorney general...
  • Media outlets take Trump out of context to suggest he called undocumented immigrants 'animals'

    Several news organizations took remarks President Donald Trump made Wednesday out of context to suggest he was referring to undocumented immigrants at large as "animals," when in context it appears the President was likely referring to members of a violent gang. The comment in question happened at a White House roundtable discussion on the subject of immigration and so-called "sanctuary cities." Complaining at the roundtable about confusion between different levels of law enforcement, Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims brought up the violent gang Mara Salvatrucha, better known as MS-13. "There could be an MS-13 member I know about -- if...
  • CNN’s Cuomo: Kate Steinle’s Killer Falsely Painted as “Monster”

    Stormy Daniels has Michael Avenatti. Maybe Kate Steinle’s killer—Jose Garcia Zarate—should hire Chris Cuomo to run PR for him. On CNN this morning, Cuomo claimed: “The facts of it. He was not–the idea of what he was painted as: there is a monster in our midst, and there are so many just like him. The facts don’t line up on it. And it’s always been a gross abuse of the situation.” Poor Jose. Think of him not as a killer, but as a victim. Of “gross abuse.” Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    If you get involved in a hit-and-run accident in California, be prepared to get slammed twice — once by the scofflaw and again when you find out that uninsured motorist insurance won’t pay for repairs if you can’t identify the other driver or car by its plate number.

    White House chief of staff John Kelly said in an interview set to air Saturday that the majority of people who enter the U.S. illegally do not “assimilate” easily into modern American society. “The vast majority of the people that move illegally into the United States are not bad people … but they’re also not people that would easily assimilate into the United States into our modern society,” Kelly told NPR.

    The backlash against a new California law that protects immigrants continued in Santa Clarita as the City Council voted to formally oppose the so-called sanctuary law and file a brief in support of the Trump administration's lawsuit against the state. With the 5-0 vote early Wednesday morning, Santa Clarita became what is believed to be the first city in Los Angeles County to officially oppose Senate Bill 54, joining a handful of municipalities elsewhere in Southern California that have challenged the law since Gov. Jerry Brown signed it in October. The council chamber was packed Tuesday night, with people standing...

    Lotta agita over this on both sides of political media today, I think because Pence is still held to a slightly higher standard than Trump is. He spent most of his career as a dogmatic conservative and even endorsed Ted Cruz (verrrry reluctantly) over Trump before the Indiana primary in 2016. He gets the same benefit of the doubt from the politerati that Kellyanne Conway does: He and she are old hands in D.C. and therefore they’re supposed to “know better.” Trump calling a guy a champion of the rule of law who once referred to his own prison as...

    The number of illegal border crossers in Canada will soon surpass the 25,000 Syrian refugees Canada accepted in 2016 There are so many Mounties needed to process illegal border crossings in rural Quebec that the federal government is now spending $250,000 to build an unofficial police station on the U.S. border. In Toronto last week, Mayor John Tory announced that the number of refugee claimants in the city’s shelter system has quadrupled from 459 per night in 2016 to an average of 2,351 in 2018. And at least one Quebec politician is calling for a border fence with the U.S....

    “Trump…has frequently cited the caravan as a justification for tough measures against illegal immigration.” LA Times Question: if the caravan is not a justification for tough measures against ILLEGAL immigration what, pray tell, is? And here’s a little tip from Tucker for illegal immigrants being coached to ask for asylum when they cross the U.S. border: “When you arrive in a country, you don’t wave the flag of a foreign nation. That’s what you do when you invade. Immigration happens with the consent of the host country.” But when you are trying to reformat the basic demographic of the...

    Gabriela Hernandez and her two boys joined the "migrant caravan" of travelers across Mexico toward the United States, some hoping to cross the border. This is her story of the journey, compiled from multiple visits and interviews. She is late. Gabriela Hernandez has missed the caravan marching north. As she realizes her mistake, she also knows she can't let it go. She scrounges up enough coins to pay for a taxi. Not knowing exactly where the group is, they simply head north, asking along the way in the hope they will catch up with the group. The pregnant mother of...

    Former Mexican President Vicente Fox called on President Trump to apologize to Mexico for his past comments describing some Mexican immigrants as "rapists" and murderers in a new interview with a CNBC podcast. In his interview with "Speakeasy with John Harwood," Fox, a frequent Trump critic, says Mexicans are "offended" by Trump's rhetoric and calls for a wall to be built along the U.S.-Mexico border. "We are not paying for that f----n' wall. That's for sure. And why should we? I mean, it's incredible. He's trying to [play] hardball to Mexico. We are offended. We're really offended," Fox says. "Every...

However...the reality is, these few hundreds of people are a mere fraction, of a fraction, of the total numbers who are "apprehended" at the border every year and those numbers only represent those that are caught!In just the last full 5 years, there were over 2,000,000 foreign nationals caught by immigration on our southern border, trying to sneak in and disrespect our national sovereignty and break our laws.How many of those 2 million were "released" into the country, only to not be heard from again by immigration officials?How many...

    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 AmericaÂ’s southern border. Not only is this a great policy decision, but itÂ’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 wonÂ’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. John’s 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 they’ll supply. “They want to have a stockpile,” clinic Chief Executive Jim Mangia said. “There’s 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, they’re going to get picked up and deported.” Healthcare providers say President Trump’s 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.
