    A San Francisco city commission has taken a defiant stand against Mayor Gavin Newsom's directive on young immigrant felons by urging officials to permit the offenders to remain in the city and help pay for their housing, job placement services and immigration lawyers. (snip)

    It's been a year and a half since Texas police raided Guillermo Urquiza's home, looking for proof that he tried to order a hit on a police officer. Urquiza, who was asleep, grabbed a gun and fired when he heard the commotion. Officers fired back, hitting him in the crotch and stomach. He had to be castrated as a result. He's been sentenced to five years for firing at the officers -- they were never able to prove the original accusation. He says it's unfair because he didn't know they were police. The authorities say they clearly announced and identified...

Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., on the immigration legislation. "It's the best bill I think we can get to President Bush," Graham said as some in the crowd shouted "No!"

    ASSOCIATED PRESS ^ | April 7, 2007
    PHOENIX -- Authorities found at least 80 suspected illegal immigrants in a house west of Phoenix and arrested two suspected smugglers, a police official said. Authorities shot tear gas into the house, forcing one of the suspected smugglers out. They found the other suspect hiding in the attic, said Peoria police spokesman Mike Tellef. He said authorities became aware of the drop house after a Michigan resident called U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, saying one of their relatives had called because the smugglers were demanding more money. ICE spokeswoman Virginia Kice did not confirm how the agency became aware of...

It gives the cost in education, health care costs and what industries illegal immigrants work in . It is very easy to follow and it has...

    May 1st is slated as a day when illegal aliens will walk off their jobs and take to the streets to illustrate how much our cities depend on cheap illegal labor. If the federal government is serious about enforcing the law, May 2nd should set a record for illegal immigrants being rounded up. Here's what I mean. Suppose a news story tells you that local grocery stores are shut down due to a lack of illegal labor. If you're a federal immigration agent, its pretty easy to deduce that these grocery stores have a few illegals on staff, and to...
  • Poll: Illegal Immigration A Minor Concern In State

    (AP) Californians' views on illegal immigration have softened over the last two decades, with an increasing number seeing it as beneficial to the state's economy, according to a new statewide poll released Thursday. The Field Poll showed that 47 percent of Californians see illegal immigration as having a favorable impact on the state while 45 percent see it as having an unfavorable impact. That split narrowed considerably from 1982, when just 19 percent saw it as favorable while 75 percent saw it as unfavorable. The poll noted that registered voters (26 percent) and non-Hispanics (33 percent) were less likely to...

    If it looks like a dog, smells like a dog and barks like a dog, it probably is a dog no matter how its owner tries to disguise it. Or, as Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo,, recently observed "There is a little more lipstick on this pig than there was before, but it's most certainly the same old pig." THe "pig" referred to by Tancredo is a bipartisan immigration reform bill introduced on May 12 by Republican Senator John McCain and Democratic Senator Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts. The bill, if passed, would clear the way to allow many of the estimated...

    Last night, Minutemen supporters gathered privately at the Women's Civic Club of Garden Grove (in O.C.) to hear a discussion lead by James Gilchrist, the founder of the Minutemen Project. About 300 protestors, charging that the Minutemen are a racist group, gathered outside to protest the meeting. When the Minutemen supporters tried to leave the event, at least two of their cars were attacked by dozens of protestors. The protestors hit the vehicles with placards and other objects until one of the drivers gunned his car to get away from the crowd. He was arrested, though I'm not sure what...
