    YAKIMA, Wash. -- When activists take to the streets Monday as part of an annual call for immigration reform, it will be against a backdrop of fear and uncertainty as the country’s new administration takes an increasingly hard line on deporting undocumented immigrants.The March for Immigrants will circle downtown Yakima, visiting Rep. Dan Newhouse’s Yakima office, the federal courthouse and the Yakima County Courthouse before finishing back at Miller Park for presentations by immigration advocates.“I think we had hoped that this would be the last march,” said David Morales with the May 1st Coalition, one of the march’s organizers. “Going...

    Inside a Maywood laundromat, Hector Cruz waited amid the whir of spin cycles with his infant son. Although the 25-year-old arrived from Mexico without documents, he found a job at a car wash and feels safe within the tiny town that proclaimed itself a “sanctuary city” a decade ago. Now the emergence of President Trump’s long-anticipated crackdown on illegal immigration has Cruz envisioning immigration raids, deportation, a fractured family. Once places of refuge, so-called sanctuary cities have become targets, where residents worry that any concern for their welfare could be trounced by their community’s need for government funds. But while...
  • Univision Anchor Jorge Ramos Pens Tacit 'With Her' Column Titled 'The Summer of Hate'

    Jorge Ramos' latest column clarifies and brightens a formerly blurry line between journalism and advocacy; between neutrality and partisanship, tacitly endorsing Hillary Clinton for President in the process. To my knowledge,the Univision/Fusion star is the only national network anchor with a binational weekly column, running first in Mexico city's Reforma before publication across Univision's platforms. To be clear, Ramos has been anti-Trump from the outset of his candidacy, but any reasonable analyst could have attributed that to nothing more than a business-interest bias towards immigration policy. Recall that it was MRC Latino that broke news of his speech at Harvard,...

    NEAR FALFURRIAS — The sun blazed Tuesday afternoon as Eddie Canales and Anna Ibarra of the South Texas Human Rights Center took turns striking a three-foot metal rod into the ground with a sledge hammer for the first of 12 new water stations. “Today is important for us because this is the first time we are allowed to set these stations up in this particular ranch,” said Canales, who allowed The Monitor to ride along with him on the condition the name of the ranch was not disclosed. As the heat index climbed to over 110 degrees, Canales, 68, and...

    The Mexican Police have one of the lowest rankings in the world for performance and effective service, according to the 2016 World Police and Internal Security Index. The organization placed Mexico in the 118th position out of 127 countries that were evaluated. The diagnosis made by the International Association of Police Sciences uses four main areas of a police force: capacity, process, legitimacy and results. Mexico scored an overall rating of .394, which ranked below Sierra Leone, Honduras, Zambia, Liberia, Tanzania, Guatemala, Guinea, and Nicaragua.

    Mexican Soccer Ad Uses Donald Trump To Promote USA vs. MEX Mexico's TV Azteca has found a creative use for Donald Trump's controversial words about Mexicans and immigration: to promote an upcoming U.S.-Mexico soccer match. The clash, set for October 10th at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California, will pit the U.S. Men's National Team against rival Mexico National Football Team. Take a look to see how TV Azteca used Trump's words against him: "Our country's in trouble - we don't have victories anymore," said Trump in his infamous speech. But in the ad, this cuts to video of Mexican...

    California schools posted standardized test scores Wednesday for the first time in two years, and the results were not stellar. Just one-third of the state’s public-school students were tested as proficient for their grade level in math and only 44 percent in English, state education officials said. Under the old test in 2013, 51 percent of students were proficient in math and 56 percent in English.

    Food banks across the country are seeing a rising demand for free groceries despite the growing economy, leading some charities to reduce the amount of food they offer each family. U.S. food banks are expected to give away about 4 billion pounds of food this year, more than double the amount provided a decade ago, according to Feeding America, the nation's primary food bank network. The group gave away 3.8 billion in 2013.

    ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – All the high-profile violent crimes hitting the Albuquerque area may be helping gun sales. One local shop says they’ve seen a major uptick in sales in what’s usually the slowest time of the year and that they heard from a lot of people after the murder of Steven Gerecke. Omni Arms near Central and Juan Tabo typically sells about 30 guns a week in the summer. The store manager says in the week after police say Gerecke was killed in his own driveway by six teens on a crime spree, they sold around 50 guns. And they...

    ANAHEIM – Two men were shot late Sunday night, and one died Monday morning, in an unincorporated area west of the city, officials said. Dave Bruce Douglas, 51, and a second man were in a Ford SUV around 10 p.m. Sunday near Lullaby Lane and Poona Drive when they had a confrontation with three to five men who were on foot outside of the vehicle, Orange County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Jeff Hallock said. Both men live in the neighborhood and drove by the group who were in their late teens or early 20s and who were spray painting, or tagging,...

    Some 2.5 million illegal immigrants have flowed into the United States under President Obama, with 790,000 rushing in since 2013, according to a new analysis. Calculations from the Center for Migration Studies and the Pew Research Center indicate 1.5 to 1.7 million aliens joined the illegal population from 2009 to 2013 — either overstaying a temporary visa or sneaking into the country, according to a Center for Immigration Studies report out Monday morning. The immigration watchdog's analysis of Census Bureau data also showed that an additional 790,000 illegals entered from the middle of 2013 to May of 2015, for a...

    I saw this billboard from the Pennsylvania Turnpike today. Seems divisive, to me. Seems like the PC gods would never countenance a recruiting poster that celebrated white values. Seems like the empire is recruiting foreigners for its legions, in preference to its own, or because its own don't want to serve. The picture isn't mine. I found it online at this Kansas source, dated three years ago, the author reacting much as I did.But the tin gods still think it's a good idea.

    Large numbers of unaccompanied minors and incomplete families once again cross the Texas border. The numbers are not as great as last summer’s surge but Border Patrol agents tell Breitbart Texas that significant crossings have again resumed. “This is starting to resemble the surge of 2014,” Border Patrol agent Chris Cabrera told Breitbart Texas Managing Director Brandon Darby in an interview in June. “We are not nearly at the numbers we were last year, but it looks like we are in the opening stages” “We had two groups equal a little over 70 in one hour…. These were women and...

    WASHINGTON -- Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton slammed Donald Trump today over immigration in a passionate address to an influential Hispanic advocacy organization. "I have just one word for Mr. Trump: Basta! Enough!" she said, referencing comments about Mexican immigrants from the Republican candidate's announcement speech. "It was appalling to hear Donald Trump describe immigrants as drug dealers, criminals and rapists," she said to the National Council of La Raza. "When people and business everywhere rejected his hateful comments, did he apologize? No. He doubled down. It is shameful and no one should stand for it." She continued to bash...

    Mexico's billion dollar drugs lord known as 'El Chapo' has gloated on Twitter about his escape from a maximum security jail by taunting authorities and threatening US-presidential hopeful Donald Trump. Joaquin Guzman, billionaire head of the powerful Sinaloa Cartel, made his jail break on Saturday morning and is on the run from Altiplano jail, 50 miles outside of Mexico City, security officials said. His audacious escape saw him dash through the mile-long tunnel system, which led to a building under construction next to the prison - from where he collected clothes left for him by his conspirators.

    Illegal alien and Kathryn Steinle’s alleged murderer, Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, would have been treated in Connecticut exactly as San Francisco treated him. Apparently, this is fine with sanctuary city New Haven Mayor Toni Harp. According to the Journal Inquirer (JI), on Friday, Harp said that her city will continue to protect illegal aliens despite the horrific murder of Steinle in San Francisco.Without a history of a violent felony or a court order for his detention, Lopez-Sanchez would not have been detained by state or municipal authorities in Connecticut, state Correction Commissioner Scott Semple said, reported the JI .
