    The backbreaking work in California’s chili pepper fields and cherry orchards wasn’t so noticeable when farmworker Antolin Gonzalez was young. But the 49-year-old south Santa Clara County farmworker now suffers from dizziness, allergies from dust and pesticides, swollen feet and throbbing backaches — even eyesight problems from prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light. Like many of the state’s 2.5 million illegal immigrants, Gonzalez does not have health insurance because he can’t afford it.

    Natalie Lopez summoned the courage to show up. This was several months ago in front of the Chaska City Council. Lopez, a hard-working mother of a preschool child, did not want to be there. She's an undocumented immigrant. In the minds of some individuals in this state and nation, her ilk is as much a pariah of society as, say, violent sex offenders. "What part of illegal don't you understand?" is the slogan with these folks. When I hear this, I'm reminded of a poster of an American Indian siding with this view and then imploring all who broke numerous...

    The Obama administration has admitted that an illegal immigrant and known gang member -- who recently was charged in the murders of four people -- was allowed to remain in the United States under President Obama's executive actions. Emmanuel Jesus Rangel-Hernandez was allowed in August 2013 to remain in the U.S., following his request about seven months earlier to stay under the president's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Director Leon Rodriguez. Rodriquez acknowledged in a letter to a top Republican senator that Rangel-Hernandez's application was approved, even though a federal crime database...

Overall, ICE released 30,558 criminal aliens in fiscal 2014, which is down...

    A federal court has ruled that the Obama administration’s plan to issue work permits to illegal immigrants is–this is not exactly a surprise–illegal. But the Democrats are undeterred. Today, for the fourth time, they filibustered funding for the Department of Homeland Security, insisting that if Obama’s illegal program isn’t funded, the entire DHS must be shut down. In the meantime, it has come to light that the Obama administration has been handing out illegal work permits for years. The Center for Immigration Studies has received documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act request that indicate millions of such...

    Lindsey Graham Warns GOP Would Be Blamed For DHS Shutdown By CAITLIN EMMA 2/22/15 Sen. Lindsey Graham said Sunday the U.S. is facing more terrorist threats than ever and defunding the Department of Homeland Security would be the worst possible thing to do. Some Republicans aren’t supporting a bill to fund the agency unless it scuttles President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration. But the South Carolina senator said he hopes fellow Republicans will allow the immigration issue to play out in court after a federal judge in Texas issued an injunction last week blocking Obama’s immigration actions. Graham said...

    The southern border of the United States is about as wide open as it can get with Border Patrol agents reduced to clerks and directors of illegal alien invader traffic. Last year, the US government even advertised for individuals to help the invasion by bringing in illegals. We heard and saw pictures of train loads of illegal aliens from Central America, some riding on tops of box cars, making their way to the border where illegals then crossed unimpeded since agents were instructed to "stand down." Tens of thousands of illegal alien minor children invaders crossed our borders "alone" resulting...

    mmigration: Aliens granted executive amnesty by President Obama will be eligible for tax credits for the years they worked here illegally. But wasn't amnesty supposed to benefit the economy and not drain the U.S. Treasury? Subverting the Constitution to grant millions of illegal aliens work permits and freedom from deportation apparently isn't enough for the Obama administration. It now intends, through the Internal Revenue Service, to subvert the tax code to let these illegals collect billions in retroactive Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) payments. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, an unindicted co-conspirator in the cover-up of the IRS Tea Party targeting...

    The U.S.-Mexico border may someday see a high-profile crosser – Pope Francis. The intrepid pontiff raised the possibility that among his future trips could be entering the U.S. border from Mexico. The pope, who made the comment while flying back recently from the Philippines, said he would do it to show solidarity with immigrants, according to the Latin Post. "To enter the U.S. from the Mexico border would be a beautiful sign of brotherhood and help for immigrants," the pope said, according to the Post and other outlets. There are some logistical factors, however, that the pope indicated he would have...
