    The three teens police believe killed a high school student in Loudoun County last month all entered the U.S. as illegal immigrant children, were released into society and skipped their deportation court hearings, a top senator revealed Tuesday as he demanded answers. “Had these suspects appeared for their mandatory court date, they would have likely not had the opportunity to murder a 17-year-old high school student from Loudoun County,” Sen. Charles E. Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, said in a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson. The Iowa Republican said his committee has received information that the...

    The Washington Examiner has taken the, “Beep beep, move along folks, nothing to see here” approach to try to bring down Donald Trump. These latest Wile E. Coyotes have pronounced, “Trump is obsessed with an immigration crisis that’s already over.” The illegal aliens they are talking about are being supported to the tune of $200 billion a year by the few Americans who are still working but that is not a problem, the Washington Examiner assures us. The fact that Barack Obama has done so well in “fundamentally transforming America” into a third country has made life so intolerable here...

Billboard reports that Estefan, 62, has enlisted dozens of friends — including Shakira, Carlos Santana, Thalia, Pepe Aguilar and his wife, singer Gloria Estefan — record We’re All Mexican, which he describes as a musical “celebration of Hispanics and our accomplishments.” The track will also include reggaeton singer Wisin, Wyclef Jean, radio personality Enrique Santos and famed Spanish-American chef José Andrés, and will be released in late September. “There’s a message being sent...

That’s enough to totally overwhelm the 300 million Americans living in this country. There are only 125 million Mexicans. Even if every one of them migrated to the United States we’d still outnumber them by a wide margin.” The candidate went on to outline what he called “a strong plan to interdict illegal Asian immigration...

In reality, Trump’s rhetoric and policy proposals target one specific, ethnic group – Mexicans.

They’re lapping up everything from his claims that Mexico sends the “bad” immigrants to Mexico will pay for a Trump Wall. No doubt, these are people share Trump’s view that making America “great again” entails preserving white dominance and with it, a future for the Republican Party. He wants to build a...

Mostly belonging to young adult men, but also to women and children, several of the unearthed skulls feature holes on both sides, suggesting they belonged to a tzompantli.

    My heart really goes out to Mexico and its people. Mexico is a somewhat poor country with high unemployment. Has it ever occurred to Donald Trump that the reason a half dozen or so drug cartels have settled there is because it is right next door to their best customers — United States citizens? How is such a poor country and government supposed to fight gangs that have more money and resources than the government? It appears Trump has found the real secret to reaching high political places — find a scapegoat. It is a tactic that was used by...

    It's become one of his loudest, most frequently repeated boasts. As polls have shown him surging to the top of the Republican pack, Donald Trump has made a point of asserting his particular strength among Hispanic voters. "I have so many Hispanics, and they love me," Trump said during a speech in Laconia, New Hampshire, last week. "And interestingly, we just got from the state of Nevada a poll [that] just came out, and Trump won with a tremendous amount. And the second line was, 'Takes Hispanic vote in a landslide,' and I've been saying that. I'm going to win...

    Business mogul and 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump may have surprised some people when he recently told an estimated 2,000 people attending the FreedomFest conference in Las Vegas that he loved “legal” immigrants, Mexico, and Mexicans. But Trump said he favors building a wall to protect the U.S. border with Mexico as a way to prevent people from entering the United States illegally, especially those who were criminals in their native countries and are prone to engage in illicit activities in America such as drug and gun-related offenses, as well as murder. One of the most powerful moments occurred...

    You might think that the recent poll showing Donald Trump spiking among Republicans is about Donald Trump. It is not. It is about the Republican Party and its very dark soul when it comes to immigration. The rank and file didn’t much care for Trump as recently as May. It swooned this month when it discovered he’s a bigot. In May, according to a Washington Post-ABC News poll, 65 percent of Republicans saw Trump unfavorably. In their relative and blissful ignorance, these Republicans had it about right. But then Trump declared his candidacy in a frothing statement about Mexican rapists,...

She asked if Trump should get the same attention. “Of course he should,” Cruz said. “Listen, these drug cartels are incredibly dangerous. They are...

    White Americans are far more rape-y than Mexicans can ever hope to become. Demonizing Mexicans as rapists is a time-honored tradition of American letters and politics. The idea that hombres are fundamentally devious perverts hell-bent on violating the honor of white and Mexican women alike is soldered on the American psyche—even though it’s based on goddamn lies. This canard gained national prominence recently when Donald Trump angered any American with a soul after saying, “When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best...They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists.” But his stereotyping of Mexicans as sexual predators wasn’t...

They’re not sending you (gesturing to audience member), they’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”...

He is set to be Herman Cain squared — an early-nominating-season phenomenon with a massive media megaphone. As for his instantly notorious Mexico comments, they did more to insult than to illuminate, yet there was a kernel in them that hit on an important truth that typical politicians either don’t know or simply fear to speak. “When Mexico sends its people,” Trump said, “they’re not sending their best.” This is obviously correct.

In other words, if America elects its first Latino president in 2016, that president would almost certainly be a Republican. Meanwhile, on the Democratic side, at best there could be a Hispanic candidate for vice president, with most of the speculation concentrated on Julián Castro, the former San Antonio mayor who is now serving as President Obama’s secretary of housing and urban development....

Although Cruz is a Latino of Cuban-American background, I want to give five reasons (there are more) why most Latinos will not or should not support Cruz, who was just elected two years ago. The first reason is that he seems to have little affinity with Latinos, including the large Mexican-American population in his own home state of Texas. Indeed, Cruz is an anomaly in that state due to his Cuban-American background. He was raised outside of the state...

    A case of red measles, also known as Rubeola, was diagnosed earlier this week in Moorseville, North Carolina -- worrying health officials and highlighting the renewed threat of measles in this country. The infected person was unvaccinated and had recently returned from a trip to India confirmed Rebecca Carter, the public information officer for Mecklenburg county. Carter said she could not release any additional details such as the age or sex of the person due to patient confidentiality. Dr. William Schaffner said this case is no trivial matter, warning that measles is highly contagious, spreading easily through coughing and sneezing....

    Sixty percent of occupants of HUD properties in California, a Democrat bastion of liberal insanity, are living there illegally according to an internet email making the rounds of conservatives. While these illegals are enjoying free housing, gratis US taxpayers, about 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County live in garages. Other illegals reside in the state’s large prison system at various levels of detention, comprising a 35% inmate total on the public dole because of their crimes, arrests, and other various nefarious behaviors. Amazingly, this web report, which is attributed to local Los Angeles media outlets, says OVER 75% of...
  • Three Presidents deported millions

    What did Presidents Hoover , Truman, and Eisenhower have in common? This is something that should be of great interest for you to pass around. I didn't know of this until it was pointed out to me. Back during the great depression, Herbert Hoover ordered the deportation of ALL illegal aliens in order to make jobs available to American citizens that desperately needed work. Harry Truman deported over two million illegal aliens after WWII to create jobs for Returning veterans. In 1954 Dwight Eisenhower deported 13 million Mexicans. The program was called Operation Wetback. It was done so WWII and...

    Last night Emperor (by his own description) Barack Obama I publically challenged the validity of our Constitution. The man with no credentials who was elected by the greedy to steal power and wealth from American citizens has finally made good on his promise to “fundamentally change America.” His illegal and unconstitutional royal edict granting amnesty to criminals he knows will vote Democrat, constitutes the most sweeping pardon of criminals in our history and probably out does Jimmy Carter’s pardon of Viet Nam draft dodgers. While it is easy to think that this edict was generated by the Chauncey Gardiner-like character...

    SAN DIEGO — PRESIDENT OBAMA’S executive order eliminating the threat of deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants is good policy. It is the right thing to do. But it is a dangerous move for the Democratic Party. Yes, immigration is an important issue for most Latinos and Asian-Americans. And yes, 63 percent of Latinos and 66 percent of Asian- Americans voted for Democratic candidates for Congress in the midterms. The executive order could solidify and expand that support for years to come. But Latinos and Asian-Americans made up only 11 percent of the electorate. Even if immigration were the only...

    “The American flag is not a symbol of racism or division,” Becker said. “It is the symbol of freedom and unity. Americans have fought and died to protect that flag, and now we are told to conceal it so we don’t offend Mexican aliens, some of whom entered this country illegally.” Previously, Live Oak High School, in the San Jose suburb of Morgan Hill, had reports of problems between American citizens and Mexican students. The school sent the American kids wearing the American flag home but allowed the Mexican kids displaying the Mexican flag stay in school. In 2009, a...

    YouTube Video A Southern California woman is out of a job and facing death threats after she used her cell phone to videotape an encounter with a homeowner over a Mexican flag flying in the homeowner’s front yard — and published the video on YouTube. The woman, Tressy Capps, a political activist and a city council candidate in a town amid the Inland Empire’s endless suburbia, placed the video on YouTube on Aug. 11, 2014. “Hello? Hi. Is that a Mexican flag in your front yard,” Capps asks, pleasantly enough, in the video. The woman to whom she is speaking,...

    It’s official: the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has issued an order declining a request for an en banc hearing in a case involving four students in at a California high school who were sent home for wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. The full slate of Ninth Circuit judges has thus agreed with a lower district court and with a trio of appellate judges that officials at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif. could censor students who wanted to wear flag-emblazoned shirts. The federal appeals court issued its denial of an en banc hearing...

    No one can be certain if the amnesty fever that gripped the Republican establishment has passed, or if the conspirators are just laying low and waiting for their next chance to stab us in the back. What is clear is that during the height of their self-induced mental paralysis over amnesty, Republicans in the Senate lined up to kiss the ring of Hispanics when they confirmed Julian Castro as the new Housing and Urban Development Secretary (HUD). They struck us last July 9th and now America has another vicious enemy in Barack Obama’s Cabinet. Castro has jumped from being the...

    Woodruff High School in Spartanburg, South Carolina confiscated American flags from the vehicles of four students this past week. The school’s principal, Aaron Fulmer, explained that “professions of patriotism do not write a ‘blank check’ for egregious behavior. Many of our undocumented students may feel intimidated by such flagrant demonstrations. And as President Obama has pointed out, the American flag, like the Confederate flag, is seen as a symbol of oppression in many parts of the world.” “Flaunting so-called American exceptionalism also contradicts the lesson of humility our school is trying to inculcate,” Fulmer said. “The United States is just...

    President Barack Obama's unilateral decision to grant amnesty to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants — and the threat of doing the same for countless more — is altering the nation's landscape, but not in the way the Founding Fathers intended, Rep. Louie Gohmert told Newsmax TV on Tuesday. "Holy smokes, this guy truly is fundamentally transforming America, but not into anything that the Founders ever dreamed," he said on "America's Forum." "These are people who are being given amnesty who will eventually be able to vote if they're not already, who have no idea what it takes to maintain...
