    WASHINGTON — Addressing a group of Latino small business leaders, Mayor Giuliani yesterday adopted a moderate stance on immigration, emphasizing the need to beef up security at the borders while maintaining America's tradition as the world's most popular destination for people seeking a better life. Mr. Giuliani articulated much the same position on immigration that he has on the campaign trail, but he began with a softer tone, casting the country's attractiveness to immigrants as a strength to be preserved. "America is the country that more people want to come to than any country, I think, in the history of...

    Member of Civilian Border Patrol Convicted on Weapons Charge; Mistrial on Assault HEBBRONVILLE, Texas June 17, 2004 — A member of a self-styled border patrol group who was accused of pistol-whipping an illegal immigrant was found guilty of gun possession. But the jury deadlocked on the assault charge. Casey Nethercott, a 37-year-old member of Ranch Rescue, could get up to 20 years in prison on the weapons offense. A new trial on the assault charge was set for July 27 after the hung jury Wednesday. Nethercott was accused of assaulting Edwin Alfredo Mancia Gonzales, 26, last year while Nethercott and...

    In a case that could bolster a long-running federal grand jury probe into Northeast Florida's construction industry, an undocumented Mexican worker permanently paralyzed on a job site is filing suit today in Jacksonville against homebuilding giant D.R. Horton. Jorge Gomez, 23, was injured Nov. 11 when a large beam fell on him and broke his neck at a D.R. Horton site in a Julington Creek subdivision, according to the lawsuit. The accident left him a quadriplegic. As an illegal alien, Gomez has no workers compensation insurance and has run up $500,000 in medical bills at Jacksonville's Memorial Hospital, which continues...

    Beginning two to three days after President Bush proposed a plan that would allow illegal aliens to stay in the United States on renewable three-year work visas -- a plan that critics describe as an amnesty in disguise -- the number of illegal aliens caught trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border jumped dramatically, says a spokesman for the union representing Border Patrolmen. In the San Diego sector of the border "we have two to three times the number we had a few weeks ago," Senior Border Patrol Agent Shawn Moran told HUMAN EVENTS. Moran is spokesman for the local San...

    Mexico City (dpa) - The number of Mexicans illegally entering the United States increased by 66 per cent from 1990 to 2002, a Mexican government report said Monday. The study, by the National Population Council (Conapo), found that the number of Mexicans who cross the border illegally every year has grown to more than 1 million. Of that number, only about a third achieve their goal of staying in the United States to work. The number of Mexicans living in the United States went from 4.3 million in 1994 to 9.5 million in 2002, according to U.S. estimates. According to...

    President Bush's immigration reform plan, delayed three years because of Sept. 11, is a politically expedient confession of the massive failure of U.S. immigration policy for two decades. Bush's plan would legalize 8 million to 9 million people in this country illegally, and does nothing to shut off the flow of more illegal immigrants. In fact, it will encourage more to come. Bush is not solely to blame for this misguided policy. He has simply signed on to policy Congress has followed since the last so-called reforms, in 1986, 1990 and 1996, from which our government has apparently learned nothing....

    The Bush proposal Linda Chavez January 8, 2004 President Bush announced a sweeping new immigration reform proposal this week that could become a hot-button issue in the November election. For months, insiders have hinted that the president would propose a new guest worker program aimed at allowing more foreign workers into the country on a temporary basis. Widely favored by the American business community, a guest worker program would allow employers to fill jobs in industries that routinely experience shortages of workers willing to do the often difficult, dangerous jobs Americans shun -- at least at wages that allow employers...

    President Bush's proposal has thrust Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colo., back into the national spotlight as one of the most outspoken advocates of tougher measures against illegal immigration. On Wednesday, Tancredo appeared on numerous national network telecasts, and press secretary Carlos Espinoza said he had the busiest day of his career fielding interview requests. Tancredo condemned the proposal as dangerous for national security. And he publicly cast doubt on the sincerity of his own party's president: He believes Bush's package may be just an election year ploy to win Hispanic votes. In Tancredo's view, the measures would reward illegal immigration and...

    U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo, an outspoken critic of the country’s current immigration policies, called President Bush's immigration reform proposals "dangerous and unworkable." Tancredo, who represents Colorado’s 6th district, criticized the Bush plan for not including tougher border controls and for offering legal status to people currently here illegally. He predicted that the plan would be rejected by Congress. Tancredo is chair of the Congressional Immigration Reform Caucus. "It is dangerous to offer additional incentives and rewards for illegal immigration while giving only lip service to border security," said Tancredo. Tancredo said an amnesty program in 1986 lacked sufficient border controls...

    In politics, it’s good to be up for grabs. And it’s miserable to be a sure thing. As President Bush will prove today. In an expected announcement of sweeping amnesty and Social Security benefits for illegal Mexican aliens, the president will kick conservatives in the teeth in order to woo Latino voters. It’s clear proof that the adage “Dance with the one what brung ya” doesn’t apply in the GOP. In the GOP, conservatives exist to donate money and vote a straight ticket, and then be ignored. At least in this Administration and by this Congress. Time after time, the...

For hospitals that are already treating illegal immigrants, the decision could also mean more Medicaid reimbursements.

    NUEVO LAREDO, Mexico – The holiday trip home for many Mexican migrants has gotten easier under President Vicente Fox. Instead of insisting on bribes, some police offer to guide caravans of migrant cars, and customs agents allow gifts that in the past were often confiscated. Since taking office, Fox has made changing government officials' attitudes toward migrants one of his top priorities. He has focused on the annual return trip home before Christmas, a time when the majority of migrant families return to Mexico, clogging highways with pickup trucks and U.S. sedans overflowing with bicycles, television sets and computers.
