    JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD, Wash., November 18, 2015 — Growing up in rural Tarlac province in the Philippines, Air Force Reserve Senior Airman Anne Venice Jalos, a finance manager with the 446th Airlift Wing here, never envisioned that at age 19 she would be serving the U.S. military as a naturalized citizen. "Being raised in the Philippines was very traditional; we depended on our parents a lot. Women weren't encouraged to succeed; it sometimes felt like I was being drug down," Jalos said. After her mother moved the family to the United States, Jalos felt emboldened with a new sense of...

Having seen my country and my continent radically changed during the last decades as a result of such immigration, here is a friendly, but serious warning.

    Theyre taking benefits from the American taxpayer to subsidize their life in another country. Cuban immigrants are cashing in on U.S. welfare and returning to the island, making a mockery of the decades-old premise that they are refugees fleeing persecution at home. 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, its helping some finance their lives on the communist island. Americas 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...

    How many different ways can politicians misuse the words immigrant, emigrant, migrant, immigration, and migration when the five words mean completely different things? In 1987, one of the most charming films of all time was released. It was a fairytale, but a fairytale designed to entertain adults. The Princess Bride has been, and continues to be, a work that brings a smile to almost everyones lips, effectively mocking the conventions normally associated with fairytales. But after 28 years it can be discovered that hidden among the jokes and mockery are the occasional gems of educational wisdom. For those of us...

    The United States is being flooded with Immigrants, many of which have children here, and those children are currently regarded by the law as US Citizens. We refer to these children as "Anchor Babies", because they then allow for the rest of the family to be brought into the United States, thereby "anchoring" the family in the United States, where it otherwise would have no right to be. An Interesting and clever way of addressing the problem has recently occurred to me. The 14th amendment was originally understood as not applying to Indians, because they were not regarded as "subject...

    Many in the U.S. are currently focused on the amount of crime committed by immigrants in the country. This is due to remarks made by presidential contender Donald Trump in June and a murder allegedly committed by an undocumented immigrant in San Francisco in July. Mr. Trump suggested that many Mexican immigrants are criminals. 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. In response to Mr. Trumps remarks and the San Francisco murder, both The Washington Post and The New York Times have...

A hearing is scheduled for Tuesday. Gunadiques 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 Guandiques conviction was justified. In June, a judge ruled that a...

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.

How could a criminal, whose history includes seven felonies along with five...

    Donald Trump, the billionaire Republican presidential candidate, on Saturday took his anti-illegal-immigration message to Phoenix, delivering a 70-minute speech to a packed downtown ballroom that at times seemed more about needling his White House rivals and settling scores with his critics than public policy… About 20 minutes into Trump’s speech, a group of protesters disrupted the speech, and the ballroom immediately erupted. Trump supporters shouted “U-S-A! U-S-A!” as the demonstrators were led out.“I wonder if the Mexican government sent them over here. I think so,” Trump said to applause. “Because I’m telling you.

    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 -...

    It's becoming clear to political observers that libertarians are emerging as a key swing vote, if not an official party.

Figuring out those libertarian views on immigration are therefore very important in the wake of President Barack Obama's primetime speech announcing his executive order on immigration.

    Federal immigration officials gave separate tours for media, local governments, consular officials andimmigrant advocates on Thursday to show what residents will be afforded once they pass through the 15-foot gate to temporarily live behind high concrete walls.

    Illegal immigrants picketed the White House Monday afternoon, calling on fellow immigrant-rights advocacy groups to refuse to meet with the Obama administration until President Obama specifically includes illegal immigrants in any future meetings. We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations, said Rosi Carrasco, one of organizers, in a statement announcing the action. Billing themselves undocumented immigrant leaders, the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand.
  • White House pursuing plan to expand immigrant rights

    Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama's move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed...

    A desperate hunt is underway in Northern California for a tuberculosis patient who has refused treatment and may be contagious, putting those around him at risk. County health officials asked prosecutors to seek the warrant, in part, because Rosas Cruz comes from a part of Mexico known for its drug-resistant strain of tuberculosis. Taylor, who did not know the status of Rosas Cruz's residency, said he is not interested in punishing him through the criminal court system. Rather, Taylor said he is using the courts to protect the public's health. By law, health officials can't force a patient to be...

    Three alleged members of a Mexican drug cartel are in jail after allegedly bringing their brutal tactics north of the border and using them on a South Carolina man who owed them a $200,000 drug debt. The FBI says the men kidnapped a 23-year-old from his hometown in St. Matthews, South Carolina, on July 9 and held him for nearly a week while they tried to extort up to $400,000 from his family. He was rescued mostly unharmed early Tuesday from a home in rural Roseboro, North Carolina, where he was found chained to the floor and blindfolded. Authorities say...

"When a judge says something is in violation of the Fourth Amendment, I am not going to just keep doing it," Sheriff William Gore of San Diego told The New York Times. "If they want to take someone into federal custody, the can decide to do that, but I am not going to keep holding...
