    A record 22 percent of Americans said this month that they believe “immigration/illegal aliens” is the most important problem facing the United States, according to Gallup polling numbers released on Wednesday. “The 22 percent of Americans in July who say immigration is the top problem is up from 14 percent in June and is the highest percentage naming that issue in Gallup's history of asking the ‘most important problem’ question,” Gallup Editor in Chief Frank Newport said in an analysis of the survey. “The previous high had been 19%,” Newport said. […] “Immigration reached 19 percent of mentions as the...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Immigration has risen to the top of the list when Americans are asked to name the most important problem facing the nation -- edging out the government, which has been the top issue each month since January 2017. The 22% of Americans in July who say immigration is the top problem is up from 14% in June and is the highest percentage naming that issue in Gallup's history of asking the "most important problem" question. The previous high had been 19%. ... Of course, partisan groups almost certainly have differing reasons for viewing immigration as the top...

    “High-harm” violent offences involving weapons are soaring in England and Wales, as a crime wave continues, with knife and gun crime, as well as homicide, shooting up. Meanwhile, police also recorded 31 percent more rapes, up to 53,977, and 21 percent more other sexual offences, rising to 96,755. The revelations, from the latest official figures published by the Office for National Statistics (ONS), show offences involving knives or sharp instruments rising by 16 percent to 40,147 – the fourth consecutive increase in knife attacks revealed by the ONS

    Yesterday’s House vote on a nonbinding resolution to support ICE was an unmitigated disaster for the Democrat Party. Just 18 voted to support ICE an insignificant handful voted NO and 130 completely disgraced themselves by voting “present.” This resolution was a rare show of backbone by a usually supine Republican House leadership that has pushed the Democrats over a cliff in many districts. Remember the recent Harvard Harris poll finding that found support for ICE at a 69/31 level. Many registered Democrats support ICE. Speaker Paul Ryan set up a perfect “Heads Republicans win; tails Democrats lose” trap that the...

    (This article is a Google Translation) Minors were sent with adults so that they would not be deported if they were arrested. PF says that about 30 children are illegally sent to the country each year. The Federal Police (PF) arrested on Wednesday (18) a man responsible for sending Brazilian children and adolescents clandestinely to the United States. According to the PF, about 30 children were sent each year from 2016 to the USA. The suspect was arrested in Ji-Paraná (RO), in the Central Region of the state, through the 3rd phase of Operation Pirates of the Caribbean. PF also...

    Who is the sanctuary city for? San Francisco provided no shelter or sanctuary for Orlando Vilchez Lazo's victims. But it was certainly happy to provide sanctuary for the ride share rapist while he committed his crimes, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Monday blasted San Francisco over its sanctuary policy that “shields criminal aliens who prey on the community” by pointing to an illegal immigrant charged in connection to the rapes of four women, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. He reportedly worked for Lyft at the time, but the company told the paper that there is no indication that the...

    ... While migrants fleeing communist governments in Central America during the Cold War were welcomed in the 1980s, those arriving now do not fit into a larger American geopolitical agenda. Their afflictions — gang violence, domestic brutality and poverty — are neither American national security priorities nor anything that was originally intended to be covered under the laws of asylum. Mr. Trump has taken monumental steps to shrink the asylum system and discourage people from applying based on a belief that the United States is taking in too many foreigners. The moves are part of a larger plan developing in...

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 18, 2018 | Susan Ferrechio
    A fiscal 2019 spending measure was introduced in the House on Wednesday that provides $5 billion for a southern border wall and additional funding for border security that aims to achieve “100 percent scanning” of the border within five years. The Homeland Security appropriations subcommittee measure would fund more than 200 miles of “new physical barrier construction” along the U.S.-Mexico border. The legislation also includes $223 million to add 375 additional border patrol agents above the Trump administration request, including 140 canine teams, that, according to the House Appropriations Committee, will “initiate a five-year strategy toward achieving 100 percent scanning...
  • With new immigration policy, Trump administration gutting the right to asylum

    The Hill ^ | 07/18/18 | Raul A. Reyes
    Go away. That’s the message the Trump administration is sending to migrants at our southern border. Under a new policy being implemented, fear of domestic or gang violence will no longer be accepted as grounds for asylum. This follows a decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that people making such claims will be turned back by border officials before they can plead their case in court. Announcing the decision last month, Sessions said it “restores sound principles of asylum and long-standing principles of immigration law.” Actually, this move by the Trump administration further guts the right to asylum. It goes...

    It was always the same M.O.: The man disguised as a ride-share company driver would pull up outside a bar in San Francisco, approaching a woman who appeared to be looking for her ride. The car would have ride-share tags on it. But when the woman got in, the driver would not take her home. Instead, he would take her elsewhere and violently rape her. It happened first in 2013. Police were able to obtain forensic evidence from the sexual assault — the suspect’s DNA — and promptly entered it into the FBI’s national database known as CODIS. But there...

    The most frequently used description of America by those who advocate for large numbers of immigrants -- those here legally or illegally -- is "America is a nation of immigrants."The statement sounds meaningful. But in reality, it's meaningless. What else could America be? If no one had come to America from elsewhere, the North American continent would have remained populated only by its indigenous people -- which is what many on the left wish had happened. As the late Howard Zinn, author of "A People's History of the United States," the most widely used American history text in high schools...

    Just how laughably pathetic do the leftwing Democrats who loudly introduced a bill to abolish ICE appear after they now have to backtrack in embarrassment to oppose it since Republicans agreed to bring it to the floor of the House for a vote? So pathetic that even the leftist website Vox is mocking the Democrats for putting themselves in such a bind as to look completely foolish.  This mockery of the 'Abolish ICE' Democrats by Ella Nilson and Tara Golshan appears in the July 13 Vox as Democrats aren’t ready to actually vote for an “Abolish ICE” bill.

    Mayor Sadiq Khan rebuffed US President Donald Trump’s contention that immigrants from Africa and Asia are responsible for rising levels of violent crime in London and other parts of Europe. “The fact that rising numbers of immigrants happen to coincide with rising levels of violence doesn’t prove that the immigrants themselves are the ones responsible,” Khan argued. “Let me point out that the levels of violence in the countries of origin of these immigrants are higher than they are in London. This leads me to think that to a certain extent we are moderating their behavior and reducing the global...

The foreign government funded Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says warehouses near the base used by Iranian militias and the Syrian army were hit. The group reports that five were killed in the attack involving multiple aircraft. The attack comes on the eve of a summit meeting between the President of Syria's close ally Russia, Vladimir Putin, and President Donald Trump. Topics like Syria, Iran, Ukraine and other matters....

    Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has spoken out Thursday against the current rate of migrant deportations in Italy, claiming that it would take 50 years to expel a backlog of 500,00 illegal immigrants unless more than 10,000 migrants are deported per year, reports ANSA. In an impromptu meeting with other EU officials, he stressed the time sensitivity of the migrant issue. Although Salvini made clear that he prefers a peaceful resettlement process for asylum seekers, he leans toward more aggressive deportation procedures after hundreds of additional migrants arriving by boat in the past months have exacerbated problem by overwhelming border...

    A U.S. judge struck back late Friday night at a Trump administration claim that speeding up the reunification of immigrant families separated at the U.S.-Mexican border would put children at risk, saying the government had either misunderstood his instructions or was “acting in defiance of them.” Last month, in a case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw ordered the government to reunite as many as 2,500 children and parents separated as part of U.S. President Donald Trump’s efforts to combat illegal immigration. The separations came after families crossed the border illegally or filed for...

    Does a nation have a right to defend its culture? Or does opposition to massive immigration of people from different cultures with a history of non-assimilation amount to racism? The latter was clearly the view of two of Joy Reid’s guests on her MSNBC show this morning. Reacting to President Trump’s criticism of massive European immigration, expressed during an interview with the UK’s The Sun newspaper, guest Bobby Ghosh said: “[Trump] is saying Europe has allowed too many immigrants; it’s spoiling European culture. That is classic racist speak." A bit later, David Cay Johnston said:Get the rest of the story...

    The man arrested and accused of using a chainsaw to attack his wife had been removed from the U.S. 11 times since 2005, immigration officials confirmed Friday. Alejandro Alvarez Villegas, 32, was arrested in Chula Vista, California on allegations he tried to kill his wife with a chainsaw in front of their three children at the couple's home in Whittier. "Department of Homeland Security databases indicate Mr. Alvarez-Villegas is a serial immigration violator who has been removed from the United States 11 times since 2005," a spokesperson for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said. ... Alvarez was found...

    Seems as though once-Great Britain has just experienced a series of Trump stinkbombs, the biggest of which is his public callout of PM May. She must be seething and Boris Johnson must be showing all his teeth. My favorite of Trump’s stinkers was his denouncement of Sadiq Khan. But you’ll look long and hard on Google to find it. Same with Duck Duck Go. I don’t have the patience to look for the quote I saw regarding London’s soaring crime rate but it’s out there if you parse your search just right.

    Full title: Newt Gingrich: GOP could win big in November thanks to Democrats’ radical, unrealistic immigration stanceRepublicans have the chance to secure a major victory and expand their 51-49 majority in the U.S. Senate in the November midterm elections – largely because Democrats are advocating radical, impractical and unpopular immigration positions. As more and more Democrats throw their support behind so-called sanctuary cities, abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and promoting open borders, more and more Americans are expressing their vehement opposition to these positions. Most recently, in their fervor over the child-detention issue, every Senate Democrat scrambled to...
