In some cases, it’s possible that they may be friends of the family, but in others, they are clearly either trafficking them across the border or hoping to use them as a get out of jail free card. Of course, we’re also regularly assured by Democrats and their friends in the media this either doesn’t happen or is so rare as to be discounted.Now, however, their tune may need...

"In protest of the very obvious violation of our human and civil rights,...

Officials at first tried to downplay the possibility the migrants were kidnapped... Rafael Alonso Hernandez Lopez, who directs...

While the family marked the holiday, the houseguests had no idea that another person was there — the terrified girl Patterson was holding captive, forced to stay hidden under a twin bed, sources told reporters for the USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin.
