    Who needs E-Verify when you can appoint an illegal alien to a statewide post? As with a host of other looney, infuriating, and/or illegal things, California is the first state to have done exactly that. The California State Senate has appointed an illegal alien who is both an attorney—legally permitted to practice law in the Golden State—and an immigrants rights activist (read illegal immigrants rights activist) as a financial aid advisor. Lizbeth Mateo, 33, has been appointed to serve on the California Student Opportunity and Access Program Project Grant Advisory Committee. She was brought to the US by her parents when...

    ....Petőfi clearly asked: “Shall we be slaves or be free?” Everybody understood it, and everybody knew the answer for this. We have done a lot of things together in the last 30 years, lots of struggles, and memorable battles we fought together. But the greatest things we could achieve in our lifetime, the utmost battles that we could fight together, are still ahead of us. And by all signs, right now, just coming up. The situation, my dear friends, is: They want to take away our country! Not with a stroke of the pen, like they did 100 years ago...

    A whistleblower in the southern California construction industry says illegal alien workers have “taken over every trade” in the business while driving down wages by an estimated 40 percent. ... Blaine Taylor, the whistleblower, said the construction industry in California once offered a starting wage of about $45 an hour in the late 1980s. Fast-forward to 2018 — nearly two decades into when illegal aliens began flooding the industry — he now says that wages have fallen by more than half, standing at just $11 an hour.

    FULL TITLE:Mexican presidential hopeful vows support for illegal immigrants as he hits campaign trail–in California! A candidate running for president of Mexico who slams President Trump and supports illegal immigrants may not seem so unusual. But where the candidate chose to campaign is more than questionable. Ricardo Anaya Cortes reportedly took his Mexican presidential bid across the border into California, Fox News reported. Anaya met with businessmen and activists in Los Angeles, according to the Mexican newspaper Excelsior, calling for protections for illegal immigrants and blasting the U.S. president – while on American soil.

    Two days before ceding the Sudetenland to Nazi Germany in Munich in September 1938, British prime minister Neville Chamberlain dismissed the issue as “a quarrel in a faraway country between people of whom we know nothing.” Pretty much the same can be said of the attitude of the West towards Turkey’s attack on the Kurdish enclave of Afrin in northwestern Syria, and indeed of the bombing of eastern Ghouta.A fortnight after Turkish troops and their Free Syrian Army (FSA) auxiliaries launched “Operation Olive Branch,” Turkey’s leader, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, gave a speech to the parliamentary group of his ruling...

    It feels like the early days of the #MeToo movement, which caused a cultural shift regarding sexual misconduct — but this time, the problem at hand is gun violence, and the movement is called #NeverAgain. And this time, the courageous individuals leading the effort for change are teenagers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. Just a few weeks ago, these young Americans were simply living the typical teenage life. But that changed on February 14, 2018, when a 19-year-old former student carrying a weapon of war entered their school with the intent of slaughtering people — and...

    A man was arrested early Saturday morning after police said he barricaded himself inside a home and took a 99-year-old woman hostage... Wasden and Velasquez spent the next four hours in the home, as Velasquez negotiated with police through the door. Ultimately, it was Wasden who finally convinced him to release her unharmed around 3:30 a.m. after she gave him a lecture about not making a mess, Gabbard said. "He was rifling through the drawers, making a mess, spilling things all over and she has her 100th birthday party one week from today," Gabbard said. "And her words to him...

    QAMISHLI - US Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis on Saturday said that an attack by Turkey in Afrin, launched on 20 January, has no valid justifications in one of the strongest comments the US has made on Afrin up until date.  “While we understand their legitimate security concerns, as I've mentioned several times, that does not align with us concurring with attacks into areas that were not sources of violence before the attack into Afrin, for example,” he told reporters en route to Washington.    “We concur with Turkey on the need for locals taking control of the liberated areas, and...

    Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin warned that if Senator Barack Obama were elected president, his “indecision” and “moral equivalence” may encourage Russia’s Vladimir Putin to invade Ukraine. Palin said then: After the Russian Army invaded the nation of Georgia, Senator Obama’s reaction was one of indecision and moral equivalence, the kind of response that would only encourage Russia’s Putin to invade Ukraine next. For those comments, she was mocked by the high-brow Foreign Policy magazine and its editor Blake Hounshell, who now is one of the editors of Politico magazine. Hounshell wrote then that Palin’s comments were “strange” and...

    Federal immigration agents are escalating efforts to crack down on businesses hiring undocumented workers. New data released Friday morning shows Immigration and Customs Enforcement visited 122 businesses over the past five days, mostly in Southern California. Mike Poindexter is CEO of his family business the Poindexter Nut Company near Fresno, California. He says most Americans don't want these labor-intensive jobs. "We hire people all the time. They show up, they work two days and they leave," Poindexter said. His company is now being audited by ICE. "We've had somewhere between 5 to 10 percent of our workforce quit voluntarily just...

    The Houston school district is under fire after a student without legal status ended up in immigration detention following his arrest by a school police officer for an altercation with a female student. A lawyer for Dennis Rivera Sarmiento, 19, said his client was bullied by the 15-year-old girl and retaliated only after she taunted him with racial slurs, threw a full bottle of Gatorade at him and confronted him. "He's very fearful of being deported to Honduras," said Rivera's attorney, Brandon Roché. On Wednesday, students at Stephen F. Austin High School in Houston staged a lunch hour walkout to...

    His family says he was so petrified of being deported that a minor traffic accident sent him to suicide. We may never know for certain. Now they are mourning his loss and getting out the message of what they say living in fear can do to a person. His friends called him 'Trippy', his name was Luis Castenada, a 40-year-old father of two originally from Guatemala. The story is he came, one of eight kids, as an undocumented immigrant to this country as a young boy. His story ended this past Friday night in the San Fernando Valley when he...

When officers arrived, they discovered Macarreno is an undocumented immigrant and also has an outstanding warrant for a non-criminal offense. He is currently being held at a facility in Tacoma and could be deported back to Honduras.

    A second U.S. judge on Tuesday blocked President Donald Trump’s decision to end a program that protects immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children from deportation. U.S. District Judge Nicholas Garaufis in Brooklyn ruled that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, cannot end in March as planned, a victory for state attorneys general and immigrants who sued the Republican administration. The plaintiffs had argued that the administration violated federal law by cutting off a program that hundreds of people relied on with little explanation. In the ruling on Tuesday, Garaufis said the Trump administration could...

    On the same day that Long Beach-born, Korean-American superstar Chloe Kim jumped, flipped and twisted her way to a golden medal in the halfpipe competition of the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, the U.S. Senate barreled ahead with a long-awaited debate on the fate of young, unauthorized immigrants in America. Now she and her gold medal are being sucked into the immigration fight unfolding in Congress. Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, went as far as to bring a victorious photo of Kim to the Senate floor on Tuesday as he shared the immigration story of her father. “Today, all...

    Each year, California invites students who are in the country without legal permission to apply for the same financial aid packages available to others. But officials once again are concerned that fears are keeping those they want to help from seeking the funding. The deadline to apply for aid through the California Dream Act is March 2, just about two weeks away. As of Monday, 19,141 students had applied. That's a little more than half of last year's total. "We're 20,000 students behind," said Lupita Cortez Alcalá, executive director of the California Student Aid Commission, the organization that administers state...

    More than 100 Kenyans were deported from the United States in 2017, a sharp increase during Donald Trump's first year as president. The rise in the number of Kenyans removed from the US — from 63 in 2016 to 103 last year — reflects an overall increase in deportations of Africans. US authorities expelled a total of 2, 134 individuals from sub-Saharan countries in the past fiscal year, which ended on September 30, 2017. Somalia, one of eight countries targeted in the latest iteration of Mr Trump's selective ban on immigration, accounted for the sharpest increase in African removals. A...
