    An undocumented immigrant in California was sentenced to 401 years in prison last week after a jury convicted him of multiple violent sex crimes against a family. And the victims are advocating against deportation, fearful he'll just return. Macario Cerda, 39, was sentenced Thursday on three counts of forcible rape against two victims between 2009 and 2013.  He was also convicted of one count of kidnapping to commit rape, one count of criminal threats and seven counts of lewd acts upon a child under the age of 14, according to a press release from the Tulare County District Attorney’s Office. Prosecutors say on...

    A plurality of U.S. voters point to immigration as the most important issue facing the country, according to a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released exclusively to The Hill on Tuesday. Thirty-eight percent of respondents said that they see immigration as their top issue – more than the 36 percent who said health care is the most important matter in the country. The findings come as a deadlock between President Trump and congressional Democrats over funding for a border wall drags a partial government shutdown into its fifth week. The findings also suggests that the topic of immigration could play an outsize...

    For the second time in two days, a large group of migrants crossed the border Thursday at the remote Antelope Wells area in southern New Mexico and turned themselves in to Border Patrol agents. At about 9:30 p.m. Thursday, 115 migrants encountered Border Patrol Agents working at the remote Camp Bounds Forward Operating Base, according to a statement by the Border Patrol. The Border Patrol is now saying that criminals are using some of these mass crossings to distract agents as drug mules move contraband across the border. They say that is what occurred early Wednesday morning – just after...
  • Bill would bar border wall from state land (NM land office now in charge of radicals)

    SANTA FE – A legislative proposal introduced Monday would prohibit New Mexico from providing state land for the construction of the border wall sought by President Trump. The two-page bill would also prohibit the use of other state resources for construction of the wall, or any similar barrier, along the Mexican border. State Rep. Angelica Rubio, a Las Cruces Democrat and sponsor of House Bill 287, said a wall would be expensive and interfere with the movement of wildlife – without actually improving public safety, as its supporters say it would. “I think people who are trying to make decisions...

    Identical Democratic proposals introduced in the New Mexico House and Senate say state agencies would be barred from cooperating with federal immigration authorities seeking to hold or deport immigrants suspected of being in the U.S. illegally. The authority of sheriffs and jails to hold federal immigrant detainees also would see new limits. In addition, state agencies couldn’t use public funds to help federal authorities in “detecting, apprehending, arresting, detaining or prolonging the detention of a person” facing possible deportation.

    Via the Daily Beast, nothing much happening here, just the father of Trump’s press secretary inviting his foremost immigration critic from the right to put up or shut up. My idea when the shutdown began was for POTUS to invite Coulter to be his lead negotiator with Democrats on immigration; let America’s populist heroes come off the sidelines and show us the way to victory and/or take personal responsibility for the standoff, since they seem to think it’s a good idea. But this’ll work too.I wonder if she’d consider it, in fact. She seems to be the only prominent...

    Sarah was abducted as a teen from her local Tesco’s car park and held prisoner for 12 YEARS. Repeatedly raped, beaten, forced into marriage and EIGHT forced abortions whilst police did nothing. Police forces were more worried of being called a name, racist, than of protecting the children they pledged and promised to at their passing out ceremonies” Sarah is a white English girl and as a shy 15-year-old was studying at college hoping to train as a midwife. Never even having had a boyfriend, she was forced to marry and was raped minutes later by a man she’d only...

    Mark Levin 39 mins · ago I strongly support President Trump’s immigration proposal today. Pelosi & Schumer rejected it even before the president spoke to the nation & made his proposal. They’re radical know-nothings. Let’s hope some rank-and-file Democrats break from their open-border leadership and vote for it. You should contact your members of Congress & urge them to do so. 2.1K Likes 160 Comments 488 Shares

    Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Saturday that the Senate will take up President Trump's plan to tie more than $5 billion for the border wall to temporary legal protections for some undocumented immigrants next week. "I intend to move to this legislation this week. With bipartisan cooperation, the Senate can send a bill to the House quickly so that they can take action as well," McConnell said in a statement. Trump is asking for more than $5 billion for border security in exchange for a three year extension in protections for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) recipients and...

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said that European Union (EU) member states must be prepared to transfer powers over to Brussels at a debate on the ‘tensions’ between globalisation and national sovereignty. “Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty,” Merkel said, speaking at an event organised by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin on Wednesday. “In an orderly fashion of course,” Merkel said, explaining that — while Germany had given up some of its sovereignty in order to join the EU, national parliaments were in charge of deciding whether to sign up to international treaties.

    In a late Friday tweet, President Trump has teased what he calls a ‘major announcement’ about the Southern border and the government shutdown tomorrow afternoon at 3 pm. @realDonaldTrump I will be making a major announcement concerning the Humanitarian Crisis on our Southern Border, and the Shutdown, tomorrow afternoon at 3 P.M., live from the @WhiteHouse. Trump should declare a national emergency, shift funds out of the Pentagon, build The Great Wall, open the government and charge Democrats with finding excuses not to secure our border because they have a demographic and ideological interest in changing the face of the...

    It’s not just her bills that are sparking attention. State Sen. Amanda Chase, R-Chesterfield, generated buzz on Tuesday by presenting them while wearing her .38-caliber revolver in a custom-made holster. The first-term senator — a fan of government transparency and opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment — said she wore the gun following an incident Monday in which Capitol Police were called after immigration-rights supporters confronted Sen. Dick Black, R-Loudoun. Chase said she always carries her gun in concealed fashion but decided Tuesday was a good day to carry openly when she presented her bills in the Senate Privileges and...

    The internet expands the bounds of acceptable discourse, so ideas considered out of bounds not long ago now rocket toward widespread acceptability. See: cannabis legalization, government-run health care, white nationalism and, of course, the flat-earthers. Yet there’s one political shore that remains stubbornly beyond the horizon. It’s an idea almost nobody in mainstream politics will address, other than to hurl the label as a bloody cudgel. I’m talking about opening up America’s borders to everyone who wants to move here. Imagine not just opposing President Trump’s wall but also opposing the nation’s cruel and expensive immigration and border-security apparatus in...
