    Mohammad Abdul Wahid, 54, of Queens, New York, and Mohammed Iqbal Kabir, 42, from the Bronx, were each charged with conspiracy to commit human trafficking-related offenses; conspiracy to harbor undocumented persons for financial gain; and violating the Fair Labor Standards Act, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced in a news release. Between July 2011 and January 2016, Wahid owned and operated the Halal chicken slaughterhouse in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, which followed the traditional Islamic practice of Muslim individuals slaughtering poultry. Wahid and Kabir reportedly employed Muslim illegal immigrants to work at the slaughterhouse, paying them only $290 a week...

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Friday kept up his postelection push to position himself as a protector of immigrants against President-elect Donald Trump, announcing the creation of a $1 million "legal protection fund" to help those fighting possible deportation. The fund was created in partnership with the National Immigrant Justice Center to "provide immediate legal information, screenings, consultations and representation to individuals who may be at risk for deportation," according to a news release from Emanuel's office. The money will come from the $20 million the city set aside for Emanuel's property tax rebate program, according to city spokeswoman Jennifer Martinez.

    The Scandinavian country has been plagued with arsonist thugs setting vehicles alight, with hundreds of cars burning out since 2015. In 2016 alone, more than 70 cars have been destroyed as police struggle to combat the increasing violence and criminal activity in the famously liberal country.

Overnight Sunday another car was also reported to be burning out in the crime hotbed, which was heavily hit by arson attacks in 2015. Hallunda was one of the cities which was...

    President-elect Donald Trump ran on a platform of being extremely tough on immigration. One of his vows to voters was that he’d get rid of President Barack Obama’s executive actions, which could include those that provided protections to young undocumented immigrants from being deported. One Republican lawmaker and Trump critic is now prepping legislation that would keep those protections in place in case Trump moves forward with his pledge. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has said he is working with both Democrats and Republicans in order to protect immigrants, known as Dreamers, who willingly came forward to give their information in...

    Donald Trump’s interview Tuesday with Rep. Michael T. McCaul for secretary of homeland security set off alarms for illegal immigration opponents who view the congressman as weak on border security and latently pro-amnesty. Mr. McCaul, Texas Republican and chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, has repeatedly riled conservatives with what they describe as ineffective posturing against President Obama’s lax enforcement of immigration laws. His chief offense was co-authoring the 2015 Secure Our Borders First Act, which conservatives and activists reviled as a fig leaf to Democrats that included tough language but ignored the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants living...

We can feel great sympathy for the victims, but it is also fair to point out that some of the policies advocated by said victims helped contribute to this tragedy. And the fact is that a large number of Ohio State faculty and students are strongly pro-Islamic immigration

First reports and reports throughout the duration of the attack described it as a shooting. Authorities later clarified it was a knife attack. Minutes after news broke that there was an alleged active shooter, Twitter users called for stronger gun control and blamed the attack on lackluster laws. The school is a “gun free zone,” and instructed students to “run hide fight” and stay in place. At least eight people have been taken to the hospital, with one critical...

It was determined at trial that Jamiel Jr., who had no criminal record or ever any history with gangs, was targeted and killed due to the color of his skin. The elder Shaw helped create Jamiel’s Law, a proposed ordinance to deport known illegal alien gang members, and has testified before Congress multiple times on the matter. But after years of...

Already it is hard to recall that it was the establishment, not Trump, that insisted the battle be fought there. The candidate, at his announcement speech, spent a few minutes on immigration but then moved on to China, ISIS, Obamacare, the national debt, the Second Amendment, his desire to be a kind of National Cheerleader, and his own net worth.

    President-elect Donald Trump’s policies on illegal immigration, particularly on the border wall and cracking down on sanctuary cities, were at the center of his election campaign. Now, advocates of immigration restriction are hoping for reform to H-1B visas that they say are hurting American workers. The H-1B is a temporary, non-immigrant visa, currently capped at 85,000 visas a year, that allows employers to hire skilled, specialty workers on a temporary basis -- particularly scientists, engineers, or computer programmers. However, critics say that the system is rife with abuse, and is no longer a limited short-term program to help employers with...

The plan, which has been in the works for more than a year, would remove criminal penalties for vending. In addition, the proposal would make it so that vendors seeking a permit would no longer be asked about their immigration or citizenship status.

The first is building a wall, which Mexico will pay for. Okay? We’re going to build it. I know how to do it. It’s going to be real wall, not a toy wall like we have right now," Trump said.

    One of President-elect Donald Trump's potential cabinet picks showed photographers more than he intended over the weekend, revealing part of an aggressive plan to change the Department of Homeland Security's approach to combating illegal immigration. When the two posed for pictures beforehand, however, Kobach was clutching his proposal – and photographs captured the parts that his left hand didn't obscure. They included uncompromising approaches to deportations, providing for the 'rapid build' of the wall that Candidate Trump promised for America's southern border – 1,989 miles of it – and part of a plan that appears targeted at making sure illegal...

    A federal judge gave new citizens, and anti-Trump activists, a cold dose of reality at a U.S. Citizenship ceremony on Thursday. “I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president,” Judge John Primomo told the new citizens at the San Antonio ceremony. “He will be your president and if you do not like that, you need to go to another country.” Primomo told KENS5 afterward that he didn’t even vote for Trump and that he meant his statement as...

    Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has already laid out his plan for overhauling of the nation's immigration system, and it includes many of president-elect Donald Trump's most prominent — and controversial — campaign priorities, including reinstating an immigrant tracking system and questioning "high risk" immigrants about their views on Sharia law and jihad. The plan was laid out in a document Kobach, who's considered a potential pick to lead the Department of Homeland Security in Trump's administration, brought to his meeting with the president-elect this meeting — which was photographed by the Associated Press.

    It is time to start locking up local officials like Chicago mayor Rahm Emanuel for interfering with the enforcement of federal immigration law. Those who, like Emanuel, enable lawless so-called sanctuary cities deserve to be behind bars. Radical left-wingers don't believe America should have borders at all. During the recently concluded election campaign, Democrat Hillary Clinton even endorsed the idea that foreigners have a right to move to the United States. After Republican Donald Trump said in September, "No one has the right to immigrate to the United States," Clinton's Ohio campaign put up a tweet featuring Trump's statement followed...
  • Jeff Sessions may prosecute ‘sanctuary cities’ if confirmed as attorney general

    Sen. Jeff Sessions is on record saying so-called “sanctuary cities” that protect illegal immigrants should be prosecuted. He himself may get that chance next year. Mr. Sessions is president-elect Donald Trump’s pick to be the next attorney general, and if he’s confirmed — a very large if, at this point — he will mark a 180-degree turn from the Obama administration on a host of issues, but nowhere more so than on immigration, where he’s been the Senate’s leading crackdown proponent. From his first day in office, Mr. Sessions will have the power to strip some federal funding from sanctuary...

    So the latest round of sheer nuttiness from the mainstream media? The idea that President-elect Trump intends to resurrect the infamous and quite decidedly racist “internment camps” established for Japanese-American citizens in 1942. How did this start? It started last week on FNC’s The Kelly File during a segment with Trump surrogate and former Navy Seal Carl Higbie (whom I know). Kelly cited this story from Reuters: “Immigration hardliner says Trump preparing plans for wall, mulling Muslim registry” The story goes on to say that Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach informs Trump advisers “had discussed drafting a proposal for...
  • Byron York: Attorney General Jeff Sessions is Democrats' nightmare

    President-elect Trump's transition team knew that nominating Jeff Sessions for Attorney General would set off controversy. Democrats and their allies in the press have at key times in the past called Sessions a racist — they're now using the Alabama senator's full name, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions III, to heighten the Old South effect — and now, as they oppose Trump at nearly every turn, they've turned to race again. Here's why the effort to stop Sessions is likely to intensify as his confirmation hearings near. Sessions is the Senate's highest-profile, most determined, and most knowledgeable opponent of comprehensive immigration reform....

    A federal judge in San Antonio, Texas, told an audience during a citizenship ceremony that if they don’t like President-elect Donald Trump, they should go to another country. John Primomo, a federal magistrate judge for the United States District Court in the Western District of Texas, was presiding over the ceremony on Thursday. He criticized Americans who have protested in the days after Trump won the elections, according to KHOU. “I can assure you that whether you voted for him or you did not vote for him, if you are a citizen of the United States, he is your president,”...

    On CNN's Michael Smercornish (@smercornish) Nov/18/16, law prof. Carol Swain and Civil Rights Atty Areva Martin debated about president elect Trump's pick of Sen. Jeff Session for AG. Carol Swain said something very simple: the democrats, on whoever is going to be picked, will charge at as being "racist." She added that we should look at his 20 yes in practice as a senator. To this Areva Martín tried to argue that Sessions was very hardline in immigration. As if it's something bad or "racist." I didn't get her point how this is connected.

    President-elect Donald Trump has picked Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions for attorney general and Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo to head the CIA, signaling a sharp rightward shift in U.S. security policy as he begins to form his Cabinet. Trump on Friday also named retired Lt. Gen Michael Flynn as his national security adviser. A former military intelligence chief, Flynn has accused the Obama administration of being too soft on terrorism and has cast Islam as a "political ideology" and driver of extremism. The selections form the first outlines of Trump's Cabinet and national security teams. Given his lack of governing experience...
