    We told you two weeks ago about rumors immigrant children could relocate to the Virginia Intermont College campus. At that time, we also found out the Washington County Board of Supervisors were planning to take action to keep that from happening. We spoke with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Health and Human Services to see if VI was an option for housing the children. They told us the list of sites being considered is not available. On Tuesday night, the Washington County, Va. Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a resolution saying they do not want...
  • Migrant children are fleeing violence, but so are ours

    ...I, too, care about children facing violence and poverty, and that’s why I support the Obama administration’s plan to expedite deportations. Last weekend, 82 people were shot in Chicago, the president’s hometown — 16 died. But don’t feel bad if you didn’t know this. Recent media coverage of the child border crisis has dwarfed coverage of many of the very real problems Americans are already grappling with, particularly low-income Americans of color. The shootings that took place this week were concentrated on Chicago’s South Side, which consists predominantly of African Americans, including plenty of children. Yet despite the fact that...

    Obama goes on national TV and lies, lies, lies. Obviously the congress has not caused this crisis. Obama has. We have all the laws in place to solve the problem, but Obama refuses to enforce them. What's worse, he's actually doing just the opposite. He's inviting the illegal aliens to flood our borders and orders the border patrol and LEOs to stand down and not enforce the border laws. And even worse than that, he's actually using homeland security and the border security forces and resources to bring the illegal aliens in, house and feed them and transport them into...

    I possess almost mystical patience. I must: I'm an immigration lawyer. Twice I voted for President Obama. I donated to his political campaigns and rejoiced in his inaugurations. Even as other supporters started abandoning him because of policy disagreements, I remained a believer. Finally, however, Obama has torn my patience to shreds. How? By spouting immigration law nonsense. When it comes to immigration, Obama is like a deer in headlights. He doesn't know which way to turn or whom to appease. This week, he's an immigration conservative, assuring the country that most of the young, desperate migrants who recently crossed...

"We have not been what I would say successful yet", FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate testified before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. "The children continue to come across the border. It's a very fluid situation," Fugate said. "Although we have made progress, that progress is oftentimes disrupted when we see sudden influxes of kids coming in faster than we can...

In a video that started circulating among conservative blogs over the weekend, the Arizona Republican is seen telling supporters in North Phoenix that in a private meeting in the Oval Office, Obama said “the problem” with border enforcement measures is that “if we secure the border then [Republicans] won’t have any reason to support comprehensive immigration reform.” Kyl said the president’s supposed statement...

The buses, joined by a fleet of Border Patrol vans, illustrate the immense and grindingly routine task facing Border Patrol agents in the 5-mile slice of deep South Texas that has become the epicenter of the recent surge in illegal immigration. An AP reporter recently spent several days in this arid terrain, revealing a daily tide of migration that sends impoverished families into a harsh...

In announcing the decision, Mayor Eric Garcetti and police Chief Charlie Beck cited a recent decision by a federal judge in Oregon who found that local authorities violated the 4th Amendment rights of an undocumented immigrant held for two weeks on an ICE hold despite being eligible for release. Specifically, the judge found that such detainers lacked the necessary...

Thousands of children have been marched across the border and placed inside makeshift “refugee camps.” The facilities being used to house these illegals are emergency shelters, and they are extremely cramped and packed tight. Conditions inside these facilities are covered in a shroud of mystery as some members of Congress have been denied access to the shelters, an order that Fox News radio host Todd Starnes...

    President Obama and his aides have repeatedly sought to dispel the rumors driving thousands of children and teens from Central America to cross the U.S. border each month with the expectation they will be given a permiso and allowed to stay. But under the Obama administration, those reports have proved increasingly true. The number of immigrants under 18 who were deported or turned away at ports of entry fell from 8,143 in 2008, the last year of the George W. Bush administration, to 1,669 last year, according to Immigration and Customs Enforcement data released under a Freedom of Information Act...

The phenomenon started this spring, after a federal judge in Oregon ruled that a sheriff there had violated one immigrant woman’s civil rights by holding her in the county jail solely at the request of federal agents. “When a judge says something is in violation of the Fourth Amendment, I am not going to just keep doing it,” said Sheriff...

    Tens of thousands of Central American children, some accompanied by adults but most traveling alone, have surged across the U.S.-Mexican border in recent months. The flood has swamped the border security infrastructure as well as the youth housing facilities maintained by the Department of Health and Human Services. Washington can, and should, try to stop illegal immigration at the border, but it would be wiser, and more humane, to find ways to stabilize the communities from which immigrants are running. Any solutions must come with the full involvement and engagement of the governments of Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and Mexico,...

    The number of Latin American people living in poverty in 2013 climbed to around 164 million (27.9 percent of the population), of which 68 million are in extreme poverty (11.5 percent of the region's inhabitants), according to projections that the Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC) released today. Measurement of poverty limited to unsatisfied basic needs shows that shortages like the lack of access to drinking water or to appropriate sanitation systems still affect a significant number of people in the region. That makes one wonder if the public policies intended to overcome poverty put enough emphasis...

    The standoff over the housing of immigrant detainees in Murrieta grew Friday as protesters on both sides of the issue stood their ground. Hundreds of people gathered on the road to the federal processing facility, anticipating another convoy of vehicles containing immigrants who had crossed the border in Texas. In a reversal from earlier in the week, there were substantially more demonstrators on the immigration-rights side. Elizabeth Thornton joined Friday's demonstrations to support the detainees — but she added that she was not enamored with the federal approach to immigration. "This is a necessary step for these people to be...

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry said Wednesday that President Barack Obama must visit the Texas southern border to see the immigration crisis for himself. “If he doesn’t come to the border, I think it’s a real reflection of his lack of concern of what’s really going on there,” Perry said on FOX News’ “FOX and Friends,” noting that Obama is planning to be in Texas next week for fundraisers. “If the President of the United States is really serious about securing that border, we can show him how to do that,” Perry added. “But I haven’t even had a phone call...

    Everyone assumes that Republicans will easily hold the House in November. The dominant storyline among the chattering classes centers instead on the possibility that Republicans could seize control of the Senate from Democrats. But the rapidly escalating immigration face-off between President Barack Obama and House Republicans raises the possibility that Democrats could win back the House — even if Republicans do take the Senate How is that possible? It's simple: There are more competitive House races than Senate races in areas with significant Latino populations. Last year, David Damore, a polling analyst for the firm Latino Decisions, found that there...

    Texas attorney general Greg Abbott may sue the federal government over the influx of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S. – Mexico border. The possible lawsuit comes after the latest immigration crisis in the border state. Abbott is considering legal action against the Obama administration after a request for $30 million in border patrol and enforcement went unanswered by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson. “If the federal government is unwilling to secure the border, the State of Texas will be forced to resort to litigation to recoup the costs incurred to respond to this crisis,” wrote Abbott in an e-mail. “The...

    (CNN) -- The national controversy over a surge of Central American immigrants illegally crossing the U.S. border established a new battleground this week in a small Southern California town, where angry crowds stopped detained migrants from entering their community. The sentiment carried over to a raucous Wednesday night meeting at a Murrieta high school auditorium. Border Patrol and immigration officials got an earful. "This is an invasion," attendee Heidi Klute said before a full house. :snip: Local politicians appear to be in lockstep with their constituents. "It's a nationwide problem, and little ol' Murrieta has taken the lead," said Mayor...
