    In fiscal year 2019, which ran from October 2018 to September 2019, Border Patrol agents detained 851,508 immigrants who illegally entered the U.S. via Mexico. Of those, more than half, 473,682, arrived with family members, Customs and Border Protection data showed. According to the Washington Examiner, more than 375,000 immigrants who were detained as part of family units were later released directly into the U.S, including 145,000 who were released directly from Border Patrol stations between March and September.

    Published on Feb 12, 2020 During a trip to Arizona and New Mexico, I filmed the construction of new border wall being built east of Douglas, Arizona. An extremely impressive undertaking. This video hopes to remind viewers how incredibly innovative & productive our construction industry is. It reminded me of the Alaska Pipeline Project, in which I personally managed a small portion of. After the politics settle, our relationship with Mexico will dramatically improve, the environment will be just fine (as was the environment in Alaska post project), the word "illegal" immigrant will be gone, and in its place increased...

    Britain announced an immigration policy Wednesday that would prevent unskilled migrants from entering the country, requiring migrants to be English-speaking and have a job. Home Secretary Priti Patel said the new policy will make it easier for “the brightest and the best from around the world” to enter the country, calling it a “historic moment for the whole country.” The plan, which is intended to go into effect Jan. 1, 2021, aims to reduce the country’s reliance on “low-skilled” migrants and push companies to develop technology and automation. It is encouraging firms to recruit foreigners “with greatest talents,” such as...

    Wicked Local Cambridge (mass) ^ | 2/18/2020 | Adam Sennet
    A new law in Cambridge encourages police officers not to arrest unlicensed drivers in an effort to protect undocumented immigrants from having their information shared with federal immigration officials. The City Council voted Monday to pass the Welcoming Community ordinance, which directs officers to summons unlicensed drivers instead of arresting them whenever possible. The ordinance also prohibits the Cambridge police from: inquiring about a person’s immigration status; initiating an investigation or take law enforcement action based on a person’s immigration status; arresting or detaining a person due to an ICE detainer or administrative warrant; initiating investigations or taking law enforcement...

    "I don’t care.” The fate of 150 million Americans’ insurance plans doesn’t matter to Mayor Pete Buttigieg, the 2020 candidate said Tuesday. Appearing at a campaign event Tuesday in Salt Lake City, Utah, Mayor Pete appeared dismissive of Americans’ concerns that a universal health-care plan will mean the end of private insurance plans they prefer over a government run program.
  • While Democrats Think This Bill Will Increase Illegal Immigration, The Opposite Will Happen

    Townhall ^ | February 11, 2020 | John R. Lott, Jr.
    Democrats think that they have figured out a way to encourage more illegal aliens to come to the United States. The bill, “Protecting the Right to Organize,” which passed the House last week, allows illegal aliens to be protected by federal labor laws. In reality, this will keep illegals from getting hired and thus discourage them from coming to the United States.

Christopher Tolkien, the now deceased son of the author, stated that the settlement would “allow The Tolkien Trust to properly pursue its charitable objectives." The Tolkien Trust was founded by Tolkien’s children in the seventies to use some of the income from the estate of the celebrated philologist...
  • Horowitz: Senate Republicans looking to repeat 1986 amnesty, seeking President Trump’s support: Sources

    Senator Thom Tillis and other liberal Republicans are hell-bent on turning our rural communities into pipelines for cartel drug trafficking and criminal aliens. Rather than holding vote after vote on ridding our communities of sanctuary cities and dangerous criminal alien gangs and drug traffickers, liberal Republicans like Thom Tillis are working on, amazingly, more amnesty for illegal aliens. The North Carolina senator evidently doesn’t think that the Tar Heel State is turning blue like Virginia as quickly as he would like. He also believes that now that he lied about being tough on illegal immigration in order get Trump’s endorsement...

    The Trump administration said Tuesday that it will waive federal contracting laws to speed construction of a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border. The Department of Homeland Security said waiving procurement regulations will allow 177 miles (283 kilometers) of wall to be built more quickly in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. The 10 waived laws include requirements for having open competition, justifying selections and receiving all bonding from a contractor before any work can begin. ...Tuesday's announcement marks the first time that waivers have applied to federal procurement rules. Previously they were used to waive environmental impact reviews. The Trump...

    In what can only be described as giving the middle finger to the United States of America and law and order, the mayor of Los Angeles and his equally law-breaking police chief recorded a public service announcement letting illegal aliens know they will not be held accountable to U.S. laws while living in L.A. "Regardless of your immigration status, I want every Angeleno to know your city is on your side," said Mayor Eric Garcetti. "Here in Los Angeles, our police department does not coordinate with ICE or participate in immigration enforcement." It's amazing to me that he found a...

    Massachusetts Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D) and Ed Markey (D) expressed “grave concerns” in a letter Sunday about reported plans to deploy Customs and Border Protection (CBP) SWAT teams into so-called sanctuary cities. In the letter to the heads of CBP, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the two addressed the CBP announcement that its Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) will be deployed to several cities that refuse to cooperate with the Trump administration on immigration enforcement. "The BORTAC deployment to Boston and other cities is unnecessary, unwelcome, and dangerous. But the specter of heavily...

    Democrat Sen. Amy Klobuchar is touting her support for amnesty and easy migration of blue-collar workers — but she is hiding her support for laws that allow employers to hire foreign graduates for the white-collar jobs needed by Klobuchar’s college graduate progressive voters. “We know that immigrants don’t diminish America, they are America,” she told a February 13 event in Nevada organized by the League of United Latin American Citizens. […] Klobuchar has a long history of support for white-collar migration, despite the impact on college voters in her home state. In 2015, for example, Klobuchar backed a bill by...

    Former Vice President and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said the fact Obama administration deported 3 million undocumented immigrants, many of whom had no criminal records, “was a big mistake.” “We took far too long to get it right,” Biden said in a Friday interview with Univision’s Jorge Ramos in Henderson, Nevada. Biden said the administration did not begin to “get it right” with regard to immigration until after its first term. The former vice president also did dispute that the administration deported more people than any administration before them as well as the Trump administration, though that fact has...

    According to a new investigation by Swiss media, a cell of jihadists based in Geneva plotted to bomb cisterns full of oil near the city’s airport in a major terror attack. The plot, which was set to take place last year before being stopped, revolved largely around a man named Daniel D., who also went by the Islamic name Abu Ilias al-Swisri, a convert to Islam who went on to join the Islamic State terror group two years later, Le Temps reports. Al-Swisri, now 25-years-old, had attended the Petit-Saconnex mosque where he met two other radicals named “PF” and Ramzi,...

    Across the country, Saint Valentine’s Day is thought of as one of the great romantic date nights… unless you grow up as a Chicago Italian, in which case a very different kind of event comes to mind. At 10:30 AM on February 14, 1929, at a usually quiet garage located at 2122 N Clark Street, one of the most memorable and defining dates in Chicago history occurred, when seven mobsters of the North Side Gang were killed by four other mobsters from a rival gang who were impersonating Chicago police officers. The Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre is remembered as a...

    People leaving the Golden State are changing the political makeup of the states they move to. President Trump clearly hates the most populous state in the country he governs. While trashing California with his gutter mouth, the president has used his office to physically trash the home to nearly one in eight Americans — seeking to make its air more polluted, its water less clean, its forests more vulnerable to catastrophic fires.But now the Golden State is poised to strike back. By moving its presidential primary from June to March 3, California will finally exert a political influence commensurate to...

    A woman whose 92-year-old grandmother was slain in a sanctuary city-related killing blamed New York City Friday for her death, and praised President Trump for fighting the city to end the policy. Speaking at the White House next to President Trump, Daria Ortiz said her grandmother, Maria Fuertes, was a legal immigrant from the Dominican Republic who was a “shining example” of coming to the U.S. the right way. Authorities say Fuertes was raped and killed by Reeaz Khan, 21. ICE had tried to take custody of Khan after an arrest late last year but New York authorities ignored a detainer request, which ICE said allowed him...
