    Germany wants to support rejected asylum-seekers who voluntarily move back to their home countries with a one-time payment of 3,000 euros ($3,570). The Interior Ministry says those who qualify can apply by a Feb. 28 deadline and they would get the money once they return home. Migrants who agree to go back even before their asylum request is rejected have already been offered 1,200 euros per adult and 600 euros per child under a different program for almost a year. They are now eligible to apply for both programs.

    Illegal immigration costs taxpayers in all 50 states a total of $89 billion, and California, where an illegal on Thursday was cleared of murdering Kate Steinle despite admitting to the shooting, pays the most at $23 billion . ... The costs cover added expenditures for education, welfare, law enforcement, and medical care. When federal costs are included, the price tag nationally soars to $135 billion a year. FAIR’s data also includes the offset of taxes paid by illegal immigrants, though the numbers are much lower. In the state and local column, they are $3.5 billion. Nationally they are $15 billion....

    President Donald Trump lashed out at Democrats on Twitter on Friday, the morning after a Mexican man who illegally entered the US six times was acquitted of murder in the death of a young woman walking on a San Francisco pier with her father. "The Kate Steinle killer came back and back over the weakly protected Obama border, always committing crimes and being violent, and yet this info was not used in court," Trump tweeted. A jury cleared Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, 45, of murder and manslaughter charges on Thursday in connection to the fatal shooting of Kathryn Steinle, with...

    In a little-noticed move recently, President Donald Trump’s administration reversed a policy adopted by his predecessor that made it easier for foreigners with terrorism ties to get into the United States. Former President Barack Obama’s administration had instructed U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) officers to withhold decisions — and give the Homeland Security secretary an opportunity to grant a waiver — regarding certain foreigners who otherwise would be inadmissible under U.S. law. [snip] A policy memo issued in 2009 instructed USCIS officers to withhold decisions in four categories of foreigners to give the secretary of the Department of Homeland...

    A Rasmussen poll taken in 2013 asked American adults, "Are most white Americans racist?" "Are most Hispanic Americans racist?" and "Are most black Americans racist?" Of the three groups, the winner was blacks. Thirty-seven percent said most blacks were racist; 18 percent felt most Hispanics were racist, and 15 percent said most whites were racist. Thirty-eight percent of whites felt most blacks were racist. Even blacks agreed, with 31 percent saying most blacks were racist, while 24 percent of blacks thought most whites racist and 15 percent believed most Hispanics were racist. This brings us to the Cornell University's Black...

The only one who didn’t improve the place by his presence. His name? Christopher Columbus. His crime? Violating the sovereignty of the people who lived here already. Plus, he was the wrong ethnicity. The Daily Caller co-founder continued, “Try making that argument about any other immigrant to American and see how long you keep your job.”“Progressives have declared war on Christopher Columbus,...

    I was standing in line at the drug store a few months ago when I saw an issue of Time magazine on the rack. The cover story said something like “America’s worst serial killers” and it had pictures of the “worst serial killers” on the cover. The thing is, they never even mentioned America’s worst and most prolific serial killer. Time magazine is lying by omission and they know that they are lying. There is a reason they are lying which I will explain shortly. I read a book a few months ago titled “Kermit Gosnell, America’s Most Prolific Serial...

    We are told… Except for Native Americans, we are all immigrants or children of immigrants. True enough – true as well for the “Native Americans.” By the way, open borders didn’t work out so well for this group. The entire history of the United States, until recently, is one of open borders and open immigration. We are also told. I would like to examine the validity of this statement. Before beginning, I offer a very interesting time-lapse map, depicting immigration into the United States; each dot represents 10,000 people. Visualizing this history will tell you much about what it meant...

    Edith Rivera loved her life in Hampton, Iowa, but for many undocumented immigrants like her, this summer has been a season of fear or flight. It was quitting time. Edith Rivera took one last lunch order, dropped off a basket of tortilla chips and set off from work, heading out to the farm roads where other immigrants feared to drive. Like them, Ms. Rivera, 33, had no legal status in the country where she had lived for 18 years. She had no driver’s license, apart from the long-expired North Carolina identification she held safe, like a talisman, in her wallet....

    Illegals living in Los Angeles County were handed almost $1.3 billion in welfare payouts between the months of 2015 and 2016, Fox News reported, citing data. That’s billion with a capital “B.” That’s a quarter of what the county distributed to its entire needy population in those same months. Liberals and government elitists always like to make the case that citizens ought to support some cheap-sounding fee- or tax-paying cause by grandly pronouncing, “It’s just the cost of a cup of coffee,” or “If everyone just gave up their Starbucks lattes, it’d pay for itself.” Well, guess what $1.3 billion...

    (CNN) — American journalist Julia Ioffe slammed the Trump administration's plan to curb legal immigration calling it "very restrictive" and part of a formula that would "provide the right kind of demographic engineering," for his base. Ioffe said first lady Melania Trump initially came to America on an H-1B visa, one of the visas the government is now working to restrict. "When you ask Trump supporters, they don't care because she's a different -- she's the right kind of immigrant." "She is a beautiful white woman from Europe, and we like those. Even though she doesn't have a college degree....

    Democrats and their media are making the RAISE Act all about racism and xenophobia against immigrants while conveniently ignoring the fact that immigrating to the United States is a privilege, not a right. But what's even more amazing is that what's in the RAISE Act is not a Trump concoction created out of nowhere with provisions foreign to who we are as a nation that welcomes immigrants. It turns out some of very bullet points in the RAISE Act today were proposed before... by Democrats who led a commission to correct the very issues that unskilled, non-English speaking, welfare-dependent immigrants...

    Deporting the country’s estimated 11 million illegal immigrants would cost nearly $125 billion, but allowing them to remain in the U.S. could cost taxpayers far more, according to a new report being released Thursday by a think tank that wants to see stricter immigration limits. Steven A. Camarota, research director at the Center for Immigration Studies, crunched the numbers and found that the current population of illegal immigrants will drain nearly $750 billion from taxpayers over their lifetimes — amounting to six times the deportation costs. “Sometimes people say look, we couldn’t deport everybody because it’s prohibitively expensive,” Mr. Camarota...

    It is not very common for Europeans to move to African countries. However, in the wake of the economic crisis of 2008 many Portuguese have sought a better future in former Portuguese colony Angola. Previously, many Angolans went to Portugal, but now labour migration is going in the opposite direction. Figures from 2014 show that between 100,000 and 150,000 Portuguese live in Angola and the migration does not seem to be subsiding. NAI researcher Lisa Åkesson is writing a book about this reverse migration. “The book has attracted a lot of attention, because it is a new form of migration...

    The German court system has been brought “to the limits” due to the massive number of asylum cases waiting to be challenged, the Association of German Administrative Law Judges warned Thursday. Robert Seegmüller, the organization’s chair, said the courts have piled up a huge backlog, with 250,000 asylum decisions waiting to be challenged in court. “The situation is dramatic for administrative courts,” Seegmüller told German news outlet Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND), according to The Local. “We are now completely stretched to our limits.” Seegmüller warned that a collapse of the court system is inevitable unless authorities invest more resources and hire...

    Algebra is one of the biggest hurdles to getting a high school or college degree — particularly for students of color and first-generation undergrads. It is also the single most failed course in community colleges across the country. So if you're not a STEM major (science, technology, engineering, math), why even study algebra?

    Authorities in the town of Schorndorf in Baden-Württemberg have expressed shock after police and bystanders were attacked by members of a group of around 1,000 youths. Police report that a group of around 1,000 teenagers and young men gathered on Saturday evening in the grounds of Schorndorf Castle, as the small town celebrated the second day of its week-long town fair. According to police, a large portion of the group had immigrant backgrounds. From within the group, beer bottles were thrown at the walls of the castle, at other festival-goers, and eventually at police officers. “The violence faced by police...
