    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...

    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.

    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 .

Ignoring a plea from the Republican Party chairman to tone down his rhetoric, Trump plans to rally more than 9,000 supporters here in Phoenix on Saturday afternoon.

Ted Cruz shut down Univision anchor and Fusion TV host Jorge Ramos on illegal immigration, by turning a gotcha question around into a gotcha answer, and giving the host a lesson on the rule of law. “I think rule of law matters,” the Texas Republican said on Tuesday’s edition of Fusion TV’s “America with Jorge Ramos.” After the two volleyed the immigration issue back and forth, presidential candidate Cruz asked Ramos — an open advocate of legalizing the millions of illegals currently in the country — what happens to an American who crossed illegally into Mexico. When Ramos admitted...

    Real-estate mogul and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump called for a boycott of Macy's on Wednesday after the retail company said it would drop Trump's products. Earlier in the day, Macy's said it was snubbing Trump because of the "disparaging characterizations" he made about Mexican immigrants during his campaign launch. Among other things, Trump accused Mexico of sending its "rapists" and drug dealers to the US. In addition to blasting Macy's in an official statement, Trump attacked Macy's in a series of tweets for being "weak on border security" Read more:

They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” Coulter, who takes a hard line on illegal immigration, didn’t defend Trump directly but said she believes the government should be using...

    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...

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...

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.

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.

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,...

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...

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!

"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...

During a morning stop in Benson, the Colorado Republican pointed to the recently passes bill in the House that requires building 700 more miles of wall along the southern boundary, along with...

    NEWBURGH, N.Y. - Sunday morning in this small Hudson Valley city, more than 1,000 parishioners, most from Mexico, pack Spanish-language Masses at St. Patrick's Catholic Church. 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. It's the same story elsewhere in...

    Charlotte Observer ^ | July 31, 2005 | Liz Chandler, Ames Alexander, Danica Coto
    An illegal Mexican immigrant in North Carolina was charged with drunken driving at least five times before a July 16 wreck that killed a Gaston County teacher. 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...
  • "A Massive Economic Development Boom" That's what legalizing undocumented immigrants would unleash

    ----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...

    PUBLISHED ON MARCH 10, 2005: Under Siege As illegal immigrants surge across Southern Arizona, life for ranchers living near the border has become a living hell By LEO W. BANKS This is what it's like on the border now. Illegal immigrants bust gates open on ranches, creating expensive problems for ranchers. Rancher Fred Davis found several of his horses dying of dehydration after illegal immigrants locked them in a pasture away from their water supply. "We're tired of people who live in another country thumbing their noses at our laws, our culture and our customs, and threatening what we've spent...

    Illegals Face a Gauntlet of Doom: The Border Patrol Faces Dopers, Terrorists, and the Desperate Victims of Coyotes. The 2,100 mile southern border of the U.S., with its treacherous mountain ranges, canyons, rivers and deserts, has become an uncontrollable stretch of violence, death, rape and exploitation. Over a decade ago, SOF rode with Border Patrol Agents in Arizona when the situation already seemed out of hand. One of those agents, now retired, recently contacted SOF with a disturbing and frustrated update, reflecting the deterioration of the Mexico-United States border. "In my career, spanning three decades, many of my friends and...

    Twenty-three years ago, Eva Tinoco left everything she had and most everyone she knew for the sake of her children. Neither fear nor immigration laws were on her mind when she left her little Mexican village bound for the United States, she said. After entering the country illegally in 1981, she and her six children were among the 2.7 million immigrants who became lawful residents under the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. 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...

If you thought that, you'd be mistaken. Just ask Chris Simcox, owner of the Tombstone (Ariz.) Tumbleweed newspaper, and head of one such border group. He's trying to...
