    From the moment she stepped foot in America from Liberia at the age of 11, Tracy Garley knew she wanted to own a business. Now at the age of 27, she finds that her dream has come true. “Coming from Liberia, I came from a country that had nothing, so coming to Detroit, Michigan, I saw so much opportunity,” said Garley. She opened a retail shop on Woodward Avenue in Detroit, which she calls Zarkpa’s Purses and Accessories. The shop features unique, affordable handbags, jewelry and clothing, including items from her native country in West Africa. She has put her...

    Over the past few weeks, we've written frequently about allegations of voter fraud from around the country. The key swing state of Virginia, in particular, seems to be a hotbed of potential corruption as evidenced by the actions of 19 year old "Young Virginia Democrat", Andrew Spieles, who allegedly acted alone to re-register a bunch of dead voters in his home state (see our post here). Then there were the efforts of Virginia's governor, and long-time Clinton confidant, Terry McAuliffe to register 200,000 felons to vote. But Virginia, isn't the only state with questionable voter registration practices. Fraudulent voter registrations...

    A 34-year-old Mexican citizen arrested in Mandeville pleaded guilty Wednesday (Sept. 7) to possessing a gun while in the U.S. illegally, according to the U.S. Attorney's office in New Orleans. Salvador Acosta-Salas, also known as Jamie Gonzales Jr., faces a sentence of up to 10 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000. Acosta-Salas' charge -- possession of a firearm by an undocumented immigrant -- stemmed from a July 30 speeding stop in Mandeville, court documents show. When pulled over, Acosta-Salas got out of his vehicle and produced a Mexican identification card for Mandeville police, but he did...

    PARIS (AP) — Authorities in southern France have detained a Moroccan man they said stabbed a woman and her three daughters Tuesday at an Alps resort. Jean-Marc Duprat, a deputy mayor for the town of Laragne-Monteglin in the Hautes-Alpes region, says the mother and her girls, aged 8, 12 and 14, were vacationing at a nearby resort when a man from a neighboring apartment attacked them Tuesday morning as they ate their breakfast.

    In 2009, when Associate Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote her first opinion as a member of the high court, she used the term "undocumented immigrant" to refer to persons who are in the United States illegally. It is believed to have been the first such usage in the history of the court, where the term "illegal immigrant" had previously been used. In an interview for last week's NPR program Latino USA, Justice Sotomayor explained her decision. She told host Maria Hinojosa: "Illegal immigrant" has a sense, I think, in people's minds, that immigrants are all criminals and criminals in...

Some stay for months at a time — and the U.S. government keeps paying. Cubans’ unique access to food stamps, disability money and other welfare is meant to help them build new lives in America. Yet these days, it’s helping some finance their lives on the communist island. America’s open-ended generosity has grown into an entitlement that exceeds...

    The U.S. immigrant population reached a record high of 42.4 million according to a new analysis of census data — and the growth rate of the foreign-born population is accelerating. A new Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) report shows the legal- and illegal-immigrant population grew by 2.4 million since 2010, with more than a million new arrivals in 2014. The dramatic increases in immigration are evident in both absolute numbers of the foreign born and as a share of the U.S. population. “Immigrants (legal and illegal) comprised 13.3 percent or about one out of eight U.S. residents in 2014, the...

In this post I argue that even if it were true that immigrants would increase crime rates in America, open borders would still be justified.

A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday. Gunadique’s attorneys requested a new trial, asserting that evidence from a key witness against Guandique was false or misleading and claiming that a new trial would serve the “interests of justice.” In May, prosecutors agreed to a new trial despite the fact that they thought that Guandique’s conviction was justified.

When the government not only fails to protect its citizens, but enables those who are here illegally to murder them, it can no longer be called a government.

    “In Texas, we have a long history of welcoming immigrants from all over the world, immigrants who have helped make our economy the strongest in the country,” former Texas governor and presidential candidate Rick Perry said today. “It’s not fair that some people try to jump the immigration line by coming across our border illegally. One of the core responsibilities of the federal government is to secure the border. As the recent tragedy in San Francisco has shown us, it’s important for the federal government and local governments to be able to cooperate to apprehend illegal immigrants with criminal histories....

    In the sanctuary city of San Francisco, a man in the U.S. illegally who had been deported five times was on Monday formally charged with murder for shooting and killing a woman. That horrible story has re-ignited talk about the revolving door at the border, and the following from Arizona adds yet another example to the list:

    Faced with an increasingly segregated education system, Dutch immigrant children have taken to the streets of their ethnically mixed Amsterdam neighbourhood seeking "white" pupils to attend their schools and help their integration. Around 100 schoolchildren -- Arabs, Turks, Africans, Moroccans -- accompanied by their parents and teachers, wore provocative dazzling white T-shirts emblazoned with "Is this white enough for you?". Dutch native Annelies, 10, and immigrants' daughter Aminata, 11, have been friends since kindergarten and are also wearing the shirts, which have "All children have the right to integrate" written on the back. They "want more white children in the...

    This is a gem. Thanks to Conservative Review and investigator/writer Daniel Horowitz for pulling these numbers together in an easy to see graphic form. See the whole story here. Horowitz mentions refugees as part of the flow. (hat tip: Dick): There is one caveat we need to mention and that is that not all of those entering the US from countries such as Iraq or Iran are Muslims, but we do get at least a ball park number from this data. Also, we do not take refugees from all of those countries listed above which reminds us that there are...
  • Hillary’s immigrant grandparents: a dash of Tuzla? [The return of the fabulist]

    You know the old saying: You can fly the candidate into Tuzla with her daughter under a hail of non-existent sniper fire, but you can’t take the Tuzla out of the candidate. Perhaps sensing that she needs a resumé enhancement, Hillary Clinton returned to fabulism on the campaign trail eight years after the Tuzla Dash, telling Iowans that all of her grandparents came to the US as immigrants. As BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski painstakingly details, she’s only 25% correct. Kaczynski picked up on this part of her stump speech about just plain folks working, emphasis mine: We are turning down...

    White children will be outnumbered by minority kids in the United States in just five years, new Census Bureau projections reveal. This is the result of an ongoing trend of declining birth among white Americans and a baby boom among immigrant groups, as well as a surge in immigration. By the year 2020, 50.2 percent of all children in the US are expected to be non-white, according to the Census. By 2044, whites will be outnumbered by minorities. The Census study, released this week, predicts that by year 2060, nearly 20 percent of the population will be foreign born -...

    Can someone please answer a question for me? We have been groomed over the years by the liberal crowd to believe that illegal aliens entering this country (illegally of course) is not a criminal offense, only a civil matter. However, the following code of laws regarding immigration state clearly: 8 U.S. Code § 1325 - Improper entry by alien (a) Improper time or place; avoidance of examination or inspection; misrepresentation and concealment of facts Any alien who (1) enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers, or (2)...
