    Colorado will begin issuing driver’s licenses and identification cards to immigrants Friday regardless of their legal status, underscoring a sea change in a state that less than a decade ago passed strict immigration enforcement laws. Now, thousands of immigrants are waiting to get cards they hope will add a degree of legitimacy to their residency in Colorado. About 9,500 people are signed up for appointments through the next 90 days to get the documents, with more getting scheduled every day. Both people in the country illegally and those who have temporary legal status will qualify. The demand for the licenses...

    The Department of Homeland Security’s report on the facilities housing the recent flood of “unaccompanied alien children” (UAC) from Central America describes conditions where diseases such as tuberculosis (TB) and scabies are spreading, and staff are being exposed to human waste. The report lists off the types of diseases that are becoming prevalent in the facilities and that are requiring treatment. They include “respiratory illnesses, chicken pox, tuberculosis, and scabies.” These diseases have also spread to several DHS employees working at the locations, the report states.

    BAY CITY, MI — Wellspring Lutheran Services has secured a federal contract to provide short-term shelter at its Bay City facility for unauthorized immigrant children and teens from Central America. Wellspring CEO David Gehm said Thursday, July 31, that the nonprofit is partnering with Lutheran Social Services of Michigan to provide care and services for the undocumented youths. According to Gehm, 24 boys and girls, ages 6-13, will be housed at Wellspring's Bay City facility at 304 N. Tuscola Road. That facility currently serves as a foster home for teens who are transitioning into independent living. Those youths will be...

    Republican opposition to a border-relief package is “insurmountable,” a Tea Party conservative predicted Thursday. House GOP leaders have delayed their August vacation in an attempt to hash out the Republican differences over an emergency response to the child migrant crisis at the southern border. But Rep. John Fleming (R-La.) said there are no changes GOP leaders could make to their $659 million package that would win the support of 218 Republicans. “I think it's insurmountable. I don't care who the whips and who the leadership are,” said Fleming. “Number one, we are a completely wide spectrum. We've got some members...

    Internal investigators have already dismissed most complaints of civil rights violations against immigration agents handling the surge of illegal immigrant children on the border, the Homeland Security Department inspector general said in a new report Thursday that details near-heroic efforts agents and officers are making. In its first report since the surge, the IG said agents have contracted everything from scabies and lice to chicken pox, including bringing the disease home to their own children, as they care for the children. Investigators also said they saw instances of agents and officers spending their own money to buy toys, clothing and...

    The House unexpectedly delayed a vote Thursday on the House GOP's $659 million border bill. A vote on the controversial measure was slated for about 1.p.m., but after concluding an hour of floor debate on the measure the House went straight into debate on highway funding. The move suggests GOP leaders are still whipping their members to try to win the vote. Most House Democrats are expected to oppose the GOP measure since it changes a 2008 law so that child migrants can be deported faster. Meanwhile, many conservatives do not want to provide the Obama administration with any new...

    This past weekend I did what President Obama refused to do during his recent trip to Texas—I visited the U.S-Mexico border. I knew that the border crisis was serious, but nothing could have prepared me for just how bad this situation truly is. The results of the Obama administration’s lawlessness when it comes to enforcing existing immigration laws were magnified in the Rio Grande Valley, where Congressman Steve King and I visited a number of facilities and met with local, state, and federal officials. What we saw was people processing, not border security. Americans would be shocked to learn that...

    It has been reported that President Barack Obama is planning to unilaterally attempt to grant legal status to illegal immigrants.  There is no legal authority for him to do so.  It has been reported that it may not be possible to stop Obama’s action with a lawsuit because nobody would have standing to bring the lawsuit. Legal experts see any challenge to the expected immigration policy changes headed for the same key roadblock facing House Speaker John Boehner’s planned suit over Obamacare implementation delays: finding a way to show the injury needed to press a case in the federal courts....

Some have suggested that the humanitarian effort funded by the federal government is a diversion and that Emanuel should concentrate all of his efforts on protecting Chicago’s children from the gang violence that has claimed far too many innocent victims. But the mayor argued Wednesday that a city of big shoulders with an even bigger heart can walk and chew gum at the same time....

He also requested that the ban be expanded to any nation that reports an originating case of the virus, and that restrictions only be lifted 90 days after the last reported case.

Ruth Braiser, a spokeswoman for the organization, told Breitbart Texas that foster families can receive monthly payments for housing adult immigrants who are under 23-years-old.

    When Gov. Rick Perry of Texas announced plans to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops to help with the border crisis, it came with a power unexpected by some. By deploying them himself rather than through Washington, he has the power to order the troops to make arrests and apprehensions, something Guard troops in past border deployments have been prohibited from doing. Immigrant rights advocates and others, including former federal officials involved in previous National Guard mobilizations, said the troops would lack both training and federal oversight, creating a risk of civil rights violations and deadly encounters with immigrants.

The storms began Friday in Sonora, Mexico, and resumed Saturday night until Sunday morning, when debris from the Mexican side of the border traveled through a wash and piled up against the border fence. The fence, just west of the Nogales-Mariposa Port of Entry near Interstate 19, stood between 18 and 26 feet high and extended at least 7 feet underground. Border agents were alerted not long after the wall fell. "Resources have...

    Glen Beck’s “charity” charade is neither conservative nor, in my opinion, Christian.  This nation’s charitable impulses have already been exploited beyond belief through decades’ worth of lax immigration enforcement.  The most likely outcome of Beck’s “charity” act is that it will diminish the rule of law and undermine conservative goals.With his flippant gift-giving, Beck (and his colleagues like Dana Loesch) will make it harder for America to reduce illegal immigration, maintain our sovereignty, and restrain the welfare state.  How could teddy bears and soccer balls have such an impact?  The short answer is that giving door prizes to illegal aliens...

He has donated over $3 million to the National Immigration Forum, which has fiercely advocated for comprehensive immigration reform legislation and legalization of the nation's illegal immigrants.

    On behalf of illegal unaccompanied minors flooding our southern border, liberals are currently citing Jesus in Matthew 19:14 saying, “Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” Using that particular verse is problematic because America is not the “kingdom of heaven,” and regardless of the age or economic status of the children, Jesus would never approve of the type of lawless chaos the left is currently promoting. Nonetheless, that has not curtailed the sermonizing of Biblical scholar/House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Recently, by quoting the Conference Bishops, a group...

    Border Crisis: A new report shows the vast majority of unaccompanied minors aren't unaccompanied at all, have family members inside the U.S., are not victims of human trafficking and thus can be deported immediately. Rep. Luis Gutierrez of Illinois and other Democrats have repeatedly made the argument that Republicans shouldn't complain about the current border invasion since it was a 2008 law that automatically entitles minors from noncontiguous countries to asylum hearings before they face deportation. Gutierrez and his liberal colleagues in Congress and the media should read the law to find out what's in it. As the Center for...

    U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe turned up the rhetoric on immigration late this week, telling a national television audience that young immigrants at Fort Sill and elsewhere are in the U.S. “at the invitation of the president” and comparing the situation to the administration’s exchange of five Guantanamo Bay prisoners for U.S. serviceman Bowe Bergdahl. Inhofe also signed on to a bill by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz that would effectively end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the Obama administration’s policy of giving low priority to deportation of undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children and have been in the...
