    Immigration and Custom Enforcement agents raided six Swift & Co. plants this morning with civil search warrants, arresting illegal immigrants working at the plants. Barbara Gonzalez, an ICE public affairs officer, said they don’t have any numbers on how many people will be taken out of any of the plants and probably won’t have that number until Wednesday. She said Swift is not facing any charges right now, but the investigation is continuing. “At this point, a civil search warrant allows us to search the premises to find any illegal aliens. The strong point here is that a lot of...

    Trucking student faces deportation Instructors at a truck driving school in Rhode Island thought it was suspicious that one of their students – who was going for a CDL with hazmat endorsement – wasn’t interested in learning how to back up. According to the Providence Journal, the staff at the Nationwide Tractor Trailer Driving School in Smithfield, RI, became suspicious and contacted federal officials. It turned out the student, Mohammed Mullawala, was in the U.S. illegally, had driver’s licenses from three states and had falsified documents to get one of the licenses. Mullawala now faces deportation. “Maybe he’s not a...

  • Katrina Begets a Baby Boom by Immigrants

    NEW ORLEANS — First came the storm. Then came the workers. Now comes the baby boom. In the latest twist to the demographic transformation of New Orleans since it was swamped by Hurricane Katrina last year, hundreds of babies are being born to Latino immigrant workers, both legal and illegal, who flocked to the city to toil on its reconstruction. The throng of babies gurgling in the handful of operational maternity wards here has come as a big surprise — and a financial strain — to this historically black and white city, which before the hurricane had only a small...

    Wayne Brown gave up $40,000 in income to move from the Bay Area to Kansas. And he feels great. It got to be too much last year for the college information-technology officer: the commute to downtown San Francisco that sometimes took two hours, the housing-price spiral and the high-wire borrowing that paid for it. ``I would find myself sitting in traffic,'' Brown recalled, ``screaming at people.'' When the Kansas job came up in early 2005, Brown and his wife, Teresa, sold two Bay Area homes and happily settled in a suburb of Kansas City. They have never looked back. The...

    Violence erupted at a Michigan law school Thursday when protestors tried to block a speech by Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo. Police were called after protestors pulled a fire alarm prior to the speech on immigration policies. There were at least three violent incidents with protestors targeting student backers of the event, Tancredo, R-Littleton, said today. "One was spit on, one was kicked, and one was punched," Tancredo said in an e-mail. "Tires were also slashed."

    AUSTIN — Undocumented immigrants have boosted the state's economy by $17.7 billion and haven't been a drain on state government — but they did cost local governments $929 million in 2005, the Texas comptroller's office reported Thursday. The report by Comptroller Carole Keeton Strayhorn is the first comprehensive effort by the state government to calculate the benefits and costs of having 1.4 million to 1.6 million undocumented immigrants in Texas. Overall, the survey found undocumented immigrants pay more in taxes than they receive in state services. But the report's results quickly became part of a brewing legislative debate over whether...

    SACRAMENTO — Since Oct. 1, the Department of Motor Vehicles has notified more than 180,000 car owners in California that it is moving to suspend their auto registration for not having insurance. Hundreds of thousands more suspension warnings are expected to go out in the months ahead as the state's latest effort to crack down on uninsured motorists moves into high gear. The suspension notices follow the department's first effort to systematically compare a computerized list of registered car owners with continually updated data sent by insurance companies every time a driver buys, renews or cancels a policy.

    Congress will approve an immigration bill that will grant citizenship rights to most of the 12 million to 20 million illegal aliens in the U.S. after Democrats take control next month, predict both sides on Capitol Hill. While Republicans have been largely splintered on the issue of immigration reform, Democrats have been fairly unified behind the principle that the illegals currently in the country should get citizenship rights without having to first leave the country.

    President Bush will ease a long-standing rule barring HIV-positive people from entering the United States without a special waiver, a ban long criticized by human rights groups. Because of the rule, organizers of the biannual International AIDS Conferences have not held a gathering in the United States since 1990, when San Francisco hosted the event. The White House chose Friday, World AIDS Day, to announce that Bush would issue an executive order allowing HIV-positive people to enter the United States on short-term tourist or business visas without having to seek special permission.

    Thanks to a joint education initiative by the US and Saudi governments, 10,936 Saudi students - a record number - are now enrolled at 733 colleges and universities in this country, with 3,000 more expected to arrive next semester. Nearly 87 percent of these students are studying at institutions of higher learning in just four states (California, Florida, Colorado and Virginia). So what are Americans supposed to get out of this educational exchange? Kumbaya, a professor tells The Washington Post: "At the government level, relations are strong. . . . But at the popular level, there's a huge amount of...

    A Herndon Town Council member said yesterday that the town should print official documents in English only, as a way to encourage Hispanic immigrants to learn the language. "The language of the Commonwealth is English," said William B. Tirrell Sr., one of four new council members and a new mayor elected in May who have raised concerns about the impact of illegal immigration on the town. "All of our efforts should be toward encouraging people to learn English. This is an English-speaking country."

    Ga. Lawmaker's Wife Appeals Deportation ASSOCIATED PRESS ATLANTA (AP) - The wife of a Georgia legislator known as an outspoken advocate for immigration rights is in hiding after federal agents came to their home with a deportation order, her lawyer said. Sascha Herrera, the wife of Democratic state Sen. Curt Thompson, was ordered deported after she missed a federal court hearing in February 2005, her lawyer Charles Kuck said. Kuck said he plans to ask an immigration judge Monday to reconsider the order calling for her deportation, though it could take as long as a month before a decision is...

    WASHINGTON – Half of the 91,516 illegal aliens from terror-sponsoring countries and those of "special interest" apprehended at the border between 2001 and 2005 were released into the U.S. population, according to a report by the inspector general's office of the Department of Homeland Security. The report, "Detention and Removal of Illegal Aliens," released earlier this year with little fanfare or attention, suggests about 85 percent of those aliens – potentially the most dangerous – would abscond and likely never be seen by authorities again. Acknowledging the danger such aliens pose to the national security, the report cites a DHS...

    Sen. Jon Kyl said yesterday that a Republican-led filibuster would be on the table to block immigration legislation supported by congressional Democrats and President Bush that grants citizenship rights to illegal aliens. "It would be in order," the Arizona Republican told radio host Laura Ingraham yesterday. "My only question is whether we've got the votes to do it." The comments highlight the deep divide between most congressional Republicans and the White House over an explosive political issue. And, coming from the No. 4 Republican in the chamber, the tough talk suggests the final two years of Mr. Bush's presidency could...

    In a strongly worded letter sent Monday to members of Congress from the Carolinas, the Roman Catholic bishops in Charlotte, Raleigh and Charleston called for passage of comprehensive immigration legislation that would include a path to U.S. citizenship for those here illegally. Their plea could present a challenge to three conservative Catholics -- GOP Reps. Patrick McHenry of Cherryville, Virginia Foxx of Banner Elk and Walter Jones of Farmville -- who stand with their church on such issues as abortion, but have been outspoken in their opposition to what they call amnesty for lawbreakers. Also getting the letter: Republican Rep....

    Anyone born in the United States is an American citizen, a right with post-Civil War roots and defined in the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. But a controversial bill filed for the 2007 session of the Texas Legislature, one of a flurry of measures seeking crackdowns on illegal immigration, is challenging this long-held tenet of U.S. citizenship. House Bill 28, filed Monday by Rep. Leo Berman, R-Tyler, would exclude U.S.-born children of illegal immigrants from access to public education and health care, unemployment, public housing, disability and other state benefits. Analysts think it is the first-ever state challenge of...

    Gov. Bill Richardson has asked President Bush to come to the aid of an illegal immigrant who has taken refuge in a Chicago church to avoid being deported to Mexico. Richardson has followed Elvira Arellano's case in news reports and considers her family's plight a "perfect example" of why immigration reform is necessary, his spokesman Jon Goldstein said. Arellano, a former cleaning woman at O'Hare International Airport convicted of using a false Social Security number, has been in the church since August. Her 7-year-old, U.S.-born son, Saul, this week traveled to Mexico and successfully lobbied its Chamber of Deputies to...

    In just two short years, Republicans have gone from being champs to being chumps. In 2004, the Republicans were voted control of all three branches of the federal government and most state governorships. Today, they are left wondering what hit them. Now that Democrats are in control on Capitol Hill, President Bush has expressed hopes of getting a bipartisan immigration bill. The only bipartisan bill that can get past a Democratic Congress is an amnesty bill, which can be a down payment on another Republican defeat in 2008. If the people in the White House do not understand how outraged...
