    The truth hurts, goes the old saying. Nowhere is that better illustrated than in the liberal media’s treatment of Donald Trump’s presidential announcement. Not to mention the reaction of Hillary Clinton. Mediaite is up in arms about Donald Trump, specifically his views on illegal immigration and Mexico. In his announcement speech Trump had the audacity to say this of illegal immigrants coming over the southern US border: “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists and some, I assume, are good people.” Suffice to say, Mediaite did not approve. The site headlined a furious story by Matt Wilstein this way:...

    MEXICO CITY – After Donald Trump's Mexico-bashing comments this week, Mexicans are engaging in a little Trump-bashing of their own. Artesan Dalton Avalos Ramirez created a Trump piñata after the outspoken mogul bashed Mexico on Tuesday during a speech when he announced he was running for president. During his kickoff speech, Trump accused Mexico of illegally sending drugs, crime and rapists across the border. Avalos Ramirez, who lives and works in Reynosa, Mexico said Mexicans on both sides of the border are quite angry at his comments and are embracing the new piñata gladly.

    SOMETHING happened while the immigration system in the United States got broken, something that should change the way we talk about fixing it. Years went by, and nature took its course. More than 11 million unauthorized immigrants settled into our communities; many formed families and had children. Now at least one of every 15 children living in the United States has an unauthorized parent, and nearly all of those children are native-born United States citizens. Think of that statistic, one in 15, the next time you drive by a school or a playground. Think of those children living with the...

    “Immigration reform” may be the single most abused phrase in the English language. It has become a legislative honorific almost exclusively reserved for proposals which benefit everyone but actual American citizens. Consider the recent Obama-backed “immigration reform” bill rejected by Congress. That bill—the culmination of a $1.5 billion lobbying effort—doubled the influx of foreign workers to benefit corporate lobbyists, offered sweeping amnesty to benefit illegal immigrants, and collapsed enforcement to benefit groups in the Democrat political machine that advocate open borders. But for American citizens, the legislation offered nothing except lower wages, higher unemployment, and a heavier tax burden. More...

    TALLAHASSEE — A coalition of Florida hospitals is challenging a state policy on emergency care for undocumented immigrants. Hospitals in states that participate in Medicaid, the joint state-federal health insurance program, are required to treat undocumented immigrants in emergency medical situations. In Florida, hospitals are reimbursed for those services by AHCA. AHCA used to pay for all emergency care for undocumented immigrants deemed "medically necessary," according to a petition filed in the Division of Administrative Hearings last week by the hospitals. But since 2010, the agency has been paying only to the point of "alleviation" or "stabilization." The hospitals argue...

    Banning the teaching and speaking of Spanish in Public Schools would expel many Illegal Alien Invaders from US Public Schools, and thus reduce the financial impact to US Taxpayers whose taxes pay for Public Schools. The failure of the Obama Administration to protect the Citizens of the US from the expenses and job losses caused by the Invasion of Illegal Alien Invaders from Spanish-speaking countries proves that this Obama-caused "Dreamer" Invasion was implemented by Obama to "Fundamentally transform the United States of America."

The convergence, organized by the Puente Arizona and the National Day Laborer Organizing Network (NDLON), culminated in what was essentially a big party on the driveway of an ICE office building on Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

    Not a single word in the 844-page "Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act" introduced by Senator Marco Rubio and the "Gang of Eight" addresses the controversial practice of "birthright citizenship." Birthright citizenship is the common description given to the automatic grant of U.S. citizenship to babies born in the U.S. regardless of the citizenship status of the parents. Many experts agree with the verdict of law professor Lino Graglia -- that the practice generates "perhaps the greatest possible inducement to illegal entry." The failure of Congress to confront the subject is nothing new. The "four pillars" of the...

They would prefer using adjectives such as “undocumented” immigrants or “unauthorized” immigrants.

From there, they are given bus passes to return to their hometowns. The goal of the annual summer initiative is to prevent illegal immigrants from trying to cross the border again in the hopes of saving lives during the scorching summer months when hundreds die each year in Arizona.

    In a first for any administration, President Obama has implemented a new system to spare a myriad of illegal immigrants from removal by authorizing—and encouraging—low-level field officers to block deportations by using an outrageously broad list of exemptions. The unprecedented program will allow droves of undocumented immigrants to remain in the U.S. by drastically expanding factors that can be considered to exercise “prosecutorial discretion.” That’s when agencies get to decide to what degree they enforce certain laws against particular individuals. Beginning this week, federal immigration officers, attorneys and other officials can cancel the removal of an illegal immigrant that is...

    MAJDAL SHAMS, Golan Heights -Mobilized by calls on Facebook, thousands of Arab protesters marched on Israel's borders with Syria, Lebanon and Gaza on Sunday in an unprecedented wave of demonstrations, sparking clashes that left at least 15 people dead in an annual Palestinian mourning ritual marking the anniversary of Israel's birth. In a surprising turn of events, hundreds of Palestinians and supporters poured across the Syrian frontier and staged riots, drawing Israeli accusations that Damascus, and its ally Iran, orchestrated the unrest to shift attention from an uprising back home. It was a rare incursion from the usually tightly controlled...

    ANCHORAGE (AP) — For years, the man known as Rafael Espinoza was widely respected as an exemplary police officer popular among his peers here. All that ended last week when the authorities accused him of actually being Rafael Mora-Lopez, a Mexican citizen who stole another man’s identity and was in the United States illegally. “His reputation here is one of a hard-working officer, one who was very professional,” Chief Mark Mew of the Anchorage police said Friday in announcing Mr. Mora-Lopez’s arrest. “The problem, obviously, is he is not Rafael Espinoza.” posted using frpa

    A pitiful, malnourished abandoned drug horse, used to move drugs across the Mexican border into Arizona, was so weak it kept trying to sit back on its hind legs because its front legs were too weak to hold it up, according to [the] NY TIMES. Brad Cowan, a 28 year livestock officer with the Arizona Department of Agriculture, and his partner had to carry it into a horse trailer. “I’d get angry when I’d see the condition these horses were in,” he said. Horrible sores from poorly fitting make shift saddles become infected, and their hooves get severely cut and...

    A House panel on Wednesday approved legislation designed to benefit one man: Cochise rancher Roger Barnett. The measure would spell out that anyone who is in this country illegally cannot collect punitive damages even after winning a lawsuit. Voters already approved a constitutional amendment doing precisely that in 2006. But that came nearly two years too late for Barnett who was sued following a 2004 incident when 16 illegal immigrants said the rancher illegally imprisoned them. HB 2191 makes that ballot measure retroactive to the beginning of 2004. If it survives the legislative process -- and if it is found...

    An Arizona rancher who was ordered to pay nearly $90,000 in punitive damages to undocumented immigrants he confronted, with a gun, is going to request a rehearing, his attorney said. “We’ll be filing a motion for a rehearing,” said David T. Hardy, who is representing Roger Barnett. “He feels he got screwed. I have some sympathy for that view.” The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals last week upheld a lower court verdict ordering Barnett to pay the damages for the 2004 incident, in which the plaintiffs claimed that he approached them with his dog and said he’d shoot them...

    Olga Zanella , 20, grew up in Irving, attending school in Irving ISD as a child. But she hid a secret--she is an illegal immigrant from Mexico. According to WFAA, she found out she was in the country illegally during her junior year of high school, after attending a college financial aid workshop. She now faces deportation Monday because her status was discovered by Irving police during a traffic stop. Her story reflects the story of many children who are now growing up in the city, and could face similar fates. "I feel fear," she told WFAA. "It's going to...
