    TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — Hundreds of Tijuana residents congregated around a monument in an affluent section of the city south of California on Sunday to protest the thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived via caravan in hopes of a new life in the U.S. Tensions have built as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road, and with many more months ahead of them while they seek asylum. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000. U.S. border inspectors are processing...

    Don Cresitello is not the kind of guy to say "I hate to say I told you so."  In fact he takes great pleasure in doing so. And the Democratic former mayor of Morristown told you long ago that we need better coordination between local and federal authorities when it comes to dealing with potentially violent undocumented immigrants.That was proven against last week when an undocumented Mexican immigrant murdered three people in Missouri after being released from the Middlesex County jail in December to await trial on charges of domestic violence.That incident brought memories of a 2007 incident in which...

    When do too many become too much? Why must the world’s miseries become America’s responsibilities? At what point, does the immigrant line end? In the past month, emotional writers around the United States tell us that we must accept and care for the 14,000-strong immigrant caravan chugging toward our southern border. More open-borders activists plan to fight the military in order to allow the migrants into the United States. The Catholic Church encourages its flock to violate our borders at every level. The Pope, standing behind the walls of the Vatican, scolds us for building a wall on the Mexican...

    A heartless dad purposely drowned his two sons, who both had severe autism, by driving his car off a California pier — so he could cash in on a $6 million insurance policy, prosecutors said. Ali Elmezayen, 44, allegedly hatched the sick scheme two years before stomping on the gas of his Honda and sending it crashing into the Port of Los Angeles on April 9, 2015. “Witnesses heard the tires of the car screech loudly and saw the car accelerate before it flew off the edge of the wharf, crashed into the water and immediately sunk,” FBI agent Matthew...

    YUMA, Ariz. – U.S. Border Patrol agents in Yuma Sector apprehended 654 illegal aliens most being family units or unaccompanied juveniles from Guatemala, who surrendered themselves to agents on Monday and Tuesday. The groups were primarily Guatemalan nationals, not believed to be associated with the large caravan being monitored traveling through Mexico at this time. The groups illegally entered on both sides of the San Luis Port of Entry where there is outdated border wall infrastructure. Larger numbers have started to illegally cross shallow portions of the Colorado River near Yuma. At approximately 8:30 p.m. Monday night, a group of...

    11/16/2018 | MosesKnows
    Broken Immigration Laws We hear this expression often and it is usually about people agreeing that somebody should correct the broken immigration laws but nobody does. The reason no one does is that the immigration laws are not broken; they are just not strictly enforced. Any act prohibited by legislation and not challenged doesn’t make the act legal. Who supports the narrative that a law not followed or enforced is broken? Some feel the immigration law is in need of “reform” to make what is currently illegal legal. President Trumps tends to oppose this position and I tend to agree...

    SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras—On this city’s violent outskirts, where families live in tin-roofed shacks on streets menaced by gangs, the word is out on how best to escape to the U.S. Bring the children. The number of Central American families with children arriving at the U.S. border seeking asylum has surged in recent years—and they keep coming, as more migrant caravans make their way through Mexico. Having children in tow can be a successful tactic because of American immigration rules. Families from crime-ridden Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are able to gain entry by demonstrating a credible fear of returning...

The full caravan -- some 5,500 migrants...

    Newly released dashcam video shows the moments a police officer in Arkansas stared down the barrel of a gun during an intense shootout with an illegal immigrant suspect over the weekend. The Washington County Sheriff's Office said in a news release the incident happened Sunday, after County Corporal Brett Thompson tried to initiate a traffic stop around 12:43 p.m. in Tontitown, located just outside Fayetteville. The driver, 29-year-old Luis Cobos-Cenobio, didn't stop and the officer reportedly initiated a brief chase. After eventually pulling over, Cobos-Cenobio got out of his vehicle and began shooting at Thompson, officials said. The video released Tuesday shows...

Apparently, Raj is somewhat more attuned to the sensibilities of others than I. Go figure.So I did a quick scan of various post ideas and bounced them off Raj as she instructed.First topic, Lady M.MO told Oprah and a sold-out audience of 14,000 people at the United Center on Tuesday night, "Yes, I'm black." I didn’t think that would offend and neither did Raj, butt he was afraid that the vision of her squeezed into...

    COLUMBIA, Mo. — Standing in an airplane hangar in the mid-autumn chill awaiting the arrival of President Trump, Joan Philpott said she was angry and scared. Only Mr. Trump, she said, can solve the problems she worries most about. “He wants to protect this country, and he wants to keep it safe, and he wants to keep it free of invaders and the caravan and everything else that’s going on,” said Ms. Philpott, 69, a retired respiratory therapist. Ms. Philpott was one of thousands of women who braved a drizzle for hours to have the chance to cheer Mr. Trump...

    When those on the far-Left bash POTUS Donald Trump as a “racist” for his calls to build a border wall and end so-called “sanctuary cities,” they are doing so in part as a means of distracting us from the myriad of criminal acts committed by illegals who have been released into society by Democratic policies. Just like their claims that there is no such thing as “voter fraud” are lies, so too are their claims that illegal immigrants don’t commit heinous criminal acts and those sanctuary city policies always benefit us. Take the case of Luis Rodrigo Perez, an illegal...

    The third attempt to form a government in Sweden since September's General Election failed by a 195-154 vote. The leader of the Moderate Party, leading party of the "Right" bloc, Ulf Kristersson proposed a government led by the Moderates and the Christian Democrats. In the end only the Sweden Democrats joined those two parties in support of his government with the "Left" bloc against and the two other "Right" bloc parties, the Center and Liberal parties, voting against the government. Now back to square one with perhaps the Social Democrats or the Center Party getting a shot a trying to...

    Lawyers suing President Donald Trump over his decision to end special protections shielding certain immigrants from deportation are seeking unaired footage from his reality TV show “The Apprentice” to try to bolster their case alleging the move was racially motivated, the attorneys said Wednesday. Lawyers for Civil Rights, which sued Trump in February , has issued subpoenas to MGM Holdings Inc. and Trump Productions LLC demanding any footage shot during the production of the show in which Trump “uses racial and/or ethnic slurs” or “makes remarks concerning race, nationality and/or ethnic background.” Former White House staffer and fellow reality-TV star...

    For the third time since elections just over two months ago, an attempt will be made to form a new government this week in Sweden. The leader of the "Right" bloc Ulf Kristersson is set for his second try. His Moderate Party with its 70 seats and the Christian Democrats with their 22 seats are proposing a minority government in the 349 seat Parliament (Riksdag). They are hoping other parties will give their support without joining the government but the "Left" bloc is opposed along with some of "Right" parties, the Liberals and Center, if the Sweden Democrats vote to...

    Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney is directly responsible for destroying the life of an underage child who was brutally raped by an illegal alien from Mexico, thanks to the “sanctuary” policies he and his leftist cohorts are propagating in the “City of Brotherly Love.” During a recent episode of NRATV, available for viewing at Brighteon.com, host Dana Loesch discusses how Juan Ramon Vasquez, the perpetrator, shouldn’t have even been in the country, let alone allowed to roam the streets of Philadelphia looking for American children to sexually molest. “An illegal alien from Honduras, who was previously deported and who reentered illegally,...
