    A friend who was with the San Francisco Giants fan who was brutally beaten on Opening Day described a scene that went from "intimidating to hostile." Appearing on the "Mason and Ireland" show Monday on 710 ESPN Radio in Los Angeles, Corey Maciel said that approaching Dodger Stadium in Giants gear that day was not comfortable from the get-go. "It was pretty hostile just walking up to the stadium -- it was intimidating, to say the least," he said. "There were a lot of Dodgers fans angry that we were there. We got things thrown at us the whole time...

    Indianapolis - Protestors came to the Indiana Statehouse for what they called a "no hate" rally. Their issue is a package of bills similar to the tough new immigration laws in Arizona. One bill requires English-only public meetings. Another would prohibit tax-subsidized tuition for illegal immigrants. Immigration is one issue that seemed to take a back seat to all of the demonstrations for labor and House Democrats currently working in Urbana, Illinois. Tuesday, with the House still in disarray, illegal immigration surfaced again. The rally on the south steps of the Statehouse may be only one indicator of how people...

    Police serving a search warrant in a drug investigation said they found something more ghastly in a backyard shed: Two human skulls in a shrine, and several hundred pounds of animal bones, flesh, and blood believed to be part of a religious ceremony. Roberto Casillas-Corrales, 53, of Clearfield, remained jailed Monday, a day after he was arrested for investigation of abuse or desecration of a human body. Authorities say he may also face several charges of cruelty to animals. "We believe it's a religious ritual at this time," said Mike Stenquist, assistant police chief in Clearfield, about 20 miles north...
  • Terry report: Border agents fired first -- with bean bags

    TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - On the night he was killed, there is no indication that Border Agent Brian Terry ever got off a shot. That is one of the revelations contained in a confidential document that 9 On Your Side has obtained. The document is a BORTAC incident report - BORTAC being an acronym for Border Patrol Tactical Unit. According to the report, Terry was one of six officers taking part in a patrol in the Rio Rico area - not four, as the Border Patrol had previously stated. The Border Patrol has said very little about what happened that night,...

    Spurred by three recent border-crossing deaths linked to frigid weather, Border Patrol officials in San Diego aim to work with Mexican agencies to create public-service announcements detailing the dangers of illegally entering the United States. “They are ill-prepared for the weather they encounter,” said Steven Pitts, spokesman for Border Patrol’s San Diego Sector. “A lot of them lack proper footwear or layered clothing. It’s the same in the summer — we find they lack proper water, clothing.” An unusual cold spell pushed the death toll so far this year to nearly half of San Diego border-crossing deaths in 2010.

    First Lady Michelle Obama called on the Latino community to put pressure on Republicans to support comprehensive immigration legislation. In an interview with Univision, the first lady said President Obama wanted to pass immigration legislation, but could not find enough support among Republicans to move a bill. The DREAM Act, a bill to give undocumented immigrants who came to the country as children and are pursuing higher education an opportunity to become U.S. citizens, had little support among Republicans, she said. The latest attempt to pass the legislation failed in December. “So I urge the Latino community, he needs help,...

    A Homeland Security investigation to determine why a criminally convicted illegal immigrant was released before killing a nun in Virginia is complete but the administration that promised a new level of transparency and accountability WON'T RELEASE THE FINDINGS. The case ignited fury because the intoxicated illegal alien from Bolivia already had two drunk-driving convictions and an expired license when he crashed head-on into the car of three Catholic nuns. One died and two were critically injured. Media reports subsequently revealed that federal authorities released Montano on his own regognizance while he awaited a removal hearing for nearly TWO YEARS, despite...

    CHANDLER, AZ - Police are looking for three additional suspects after a man was found stabbed and decapitated inside a Chandler apartment and a nearby resident was arrested in connection with the slaying. A police statement issued on Monday says officers were called to the apartment about 5:30 a.m. the previous morning. After discovering the slain man, detectives began an investigation and eventually arrested 36-year-old Crisantos Moroyoqui. He was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder and hindering prosecution. The victim is a man in his 30s. His name is being withheld until his family is notified. Police are now asking...

    One of about every 12 babies born in the United States in 2008 was the offspring of unauthorized immigrants, a Pew Hispanic Center study released Wednesday concluded. According to the study, an estimated 340,000 of the 4.3 million babies born in this country that year had parents who were in the United States without legal documentation. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution stipulates that those children automatically become U.S. citizens, but some members of Congress are pushing to change that provision. That effort -- rooted in the debate over illegal immigration, particularly of people from Mexico -- has created some...

    Hi all. My 11 year old daughter has joined the girls chorus at her school. The chorus just decided its name will be "Las Chicas de Moda." My daughter doesn't like the name. She wanted it to be "Voces Scholasticae" (Latin for School Voices). Question: does this name sound inapproriate? To me it sounds slutty. I've told her teacher we don't like the name but they are pretty much saying it's a done deal (the first concert just happened). Any thoughts/comments/suggestions/linguistic or cultural analysis of "Las Chicas de Moda" would be great!

    WASHINGTON — President Obama weighed in Wednesday on the escalating drug war on the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that he was looking at possibly deploying National Guard troops to contain the violence but ruled out any immediate military move. "We're going to examine whether and if National Guard deployments would make sense and under what circumstances they would make sense," Obama said during an interview with journalists for regional papers, including a McClatchy reporter. "I don't have a particular tipping point in mind," he said. "I think it's unacceptable if you've got drug gangs crossing our borders and killing U.S. citizens."

    Republicans were elected to the House in 1994 on a grand promise to cut taxes, government, and spending. They were elected to rein in the government largess after 40 years of one-party rule. It was a revolution for the Republican Party. The movement started by Barry Goldwater had finally reached the pinnacle of politics—a majority believed in the conscience of Conservatives. The intentions were good, and the 12-year era of Republican rule accomplished some enormous tasks. Welfare reform under a Democratic president has cut the welfare rolls by nearly half since 1996. The economy is strong, thanks to much needed...

Afterward, many families flock to El Azteca for its authentic tacos. If somebody needs a ride home, there are at least a dozen local taxi companies catering to newcomers born in the Mexican states of Puebla and Jalisco. New residents from Mexico have, in the past four years, opened dozens of businesses that have begun to reinvigorate the ailing downtown district; they are the region's fastest growing community.

Ramiro Gallegos' driving record is far worse than authorities realized -- five impaired driving charges in five years, including one previous head-on collision. On Friday, N.C. authorities remained unaware of two out-of-state convictions until informed by an Observer reporter. Gallegos' history reveals glaring failures in communication, record keeping and enforcement among police, courts and immigration officials. If the system had worked, Gallegos would likely have been sent back to Mexico in 2002, or...

    ----SNIP---- Q: How is the undocumented immigrant community affecting the U.S. economy? A: First and foremost, it's a source of value added. The total goods and services that they consume through their paycheck, plus all that they produce for their employers, is close to about $800 billion. They're also producing at relatively lower costs because the undocumented population typically gets about 20% less in wages than if they were legalized. That leads to lower prices for us and higher profits to employers. In addition, they're obviously a huge consumer base. We've seen that 90% of the wages that the undocumented...

The law was supposed to be the solution to growing concerns about illegal immigration. It proposed a two-pronged approach: First, legalizing immigrants who were already in...

    WASHINGTON - Calling homeownership the cornerstone of the American dream, an advocacy group launched a program last week designed to raise the purchasing rate among Hispanics nationwide. The Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute said buying a home is one of the best ways for Hispanics to achieve financial security and stability, but the lack of knowledge among some Hispanics about the purchasing process has caused a "homeownership gap" that threatens their long-term economic mobility. "While homeownership is not typically seen as a civil rights issue ... it serves as a critical component of our democracy," said Ingrid Duran, the institute's president....
