  • Christmas can be trying time of year for undocumented immigrants

    This holiday season, activists in California are urging the state’s undocumented population to be particularly vigilant. That is because, at this time of year, law enforcement sets up driver’s checkpoints, attempting to ferret out intoxicated motorists. Activists warn that this can be a particularly dangerous situation for immigrants, whether or not they hold valid drivers licenses, since police officers are likely to use this opportunity to check the legal residency status of those individuals suspected of being undocumented.This holiday season, activists in California are urging the state’s undocumented population to be particularly vigilant.

    From Stand With Arizona's Facebook page: PHOENIX (KPHO) - Sheriff Joe Arpaio had his first run-in with a group of suspected illegal immigrants since things heated up with the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice recently revoked his deputies' ability to check immigration status inside Maricopa County jails. Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Lt. Justin Griffin says they pulled over a vehicle and have eight people in their custody for human smuggling at 35th Avenue and Durango. Griffin says they attempted to give four of the detainees to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, but MCSO says ICE is refusing to...

    Most American voters believe illegal immigrants should be given a chance to apply for citizenship -- if they meet certain requirements. In addition, just over half of voters like a plan -- floated by Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich -- to allow local boards to decide the fate of some illegal immigrants living in the United States. A new Fox News national poll asked voters what government policy should be toward illegal immigrants currently in the U.S. The results were released Friday. Sixty-six percent think there should be a path to citizenship, but only if the individual meets requirements such...

The illegals had paid the smugglers between $1,000 and $2,000 each to be smuggled across the border. Demonstrating how Arizona is a critical gateway for the entire nation, most of those arrested were heading to locations in the east: Mississippi, Virginia, Florida, Georgia and New Jersey. They are now headed to Sheriff Joe's Tent City instead. Way to go, Joe! But the shocking detail of this arrest is the...

    The Temple Independent School District (TISD), near Fort Hood, recently sent home flyers with children. The flyers were promoting 'College Vocational Night for Hispanics' and even informed people not to allow concerns about 'Residency Issues' to deter them from coming. Basically, illegal aliens are being invited to the event. For good measure, each attendee will receive one food voucher per family per month. Initially, your outrage might be directed at the school district (mine was) but remember, our Governor here in Texas (Rick Perry) signed legislation that made it perfectly legal for illegal aliens to attend Texas colleges at in-state...

And some of the trash was dead bodies.

Iranian business people who hold dual citizenship with passports from European nations are allegedly leaving in droves.

    OKLAHOMA CITY – So far, the only presidential candidate to seriously address the recent decision by President Obama to send 100 military advisors to Uganda to assist in capturing the leaders of the terror group Lord’s Resistance Army is libertarian-leading Gary Johnson. Johnson, the former, two-term Republican governor of New Mexico, addressed the question from Red Dirt Report regarding the plan to cripple the LRA after two decades of operating with impunity. The LRA, numbering now at approximately 400 rebels, many mostly kidnapped, conscripted children, has targeted villagers largely in northern Uganda, raping maiming, and murdering among other atrocities.

    Obama’s Illegal Move On Immigration By David B. Rivkin Jr. and Lee A. Casey Only Congress has constitutional authority to establish U.S. immigration policy, and fundamental reform requires legislative action. Thus the administration’s recent announcement that deportation will be sought only for undocumented immigrants who have committed crimes in the United States violates the separation of powers and is unconstitutional. No president, of course, can hope to expel every undocumented person in the United States — they number perhaps upward of 11 million people. Human and financial resources to identify, apprehend, process and promptly deport millions have been lacking for...

    Arizona lawmakers are hoping to raise around $50 million for border fencing with a new online public fundraising plan that launches Wednesday – despite skepticism from key stakeholders. Under legislation signed by Republican Gov. Jan Brewer in April, the state would use inmate labor and money pulled in through the website to fence in some of the 82 miles of border between Arizona and Mexico that remain open. Despite support from top state officials, the initiative is already facing problems. Private land owners and county sheriffs are skeptical that fencing even works and don’t plan on contributing, while the federal...

The Illinois Democrat is reaching out to the faith community as he tries to advocate for passage of the controversial proposal that would provide a pathway to legal status for illegal immigrants who attend college or join the military. A coalition of religious organizations -- which see the bill as a humane immigration proposal -- had already been pushing for what they call the...

Just last month Napolitano declared that violence along the Mexican border is merely a mistaken “perception” because the area is...

    President Barack Obama reflects in his thinking and actions the open-society tenets of Saul Alinsky. Alinsky, a University of Chicago graduate, introduced the concept of community organizing in 1939.

Alinsky’s influence on Barack Obama is clear and troubling. Obama worked as a community organizer in Chicago for some five years after graduating from Columbia University. Under Alinsky’s theory, a community organizer is a revolutionary adept at deceiving an unthinking populace. Obama’s campaign for the presidency reflected his Alinsky-styled...

    PHOENIX – Arizona legislators took a timeout from illegal immigration with the Senate easily defeating five related bills, reflecting little appetite for an issue that made the state the focus of national debate and protest last year. Majority Republicans were split Thursday in their votes on the defeated bills, which included two measures intended to force a U.S. Supreme Court ruling against automatic citizenship for U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants. The other three dealt with health care, public services and everyday activities such as driving. Supporters of the measures voiced frustration and said there could be political fallout for lawmakers...
