    Memorials to veterans in a Los Angeles neighborhood and a town in Kentucky, as well as a Civil War veterans cemetery in Virginia, were damaged as the nation prepares to mark Memorial Day, officials said. A Vietnam War memorial in the Venice area of Los Angeles has been extensively defaced by graffiti. The vandalism occurred sometime during the past week, KCAL/KCBS-TV reported. The homespun memorial painted on a block-long wall on Pacific Avenue lists the names of American service members missing in action or otherwise unaccounted for in Southeast Asia. News of the vandalism came as another veterans-related memorial was...

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) – Hispanic voters in Florida, New Mexico and California have waved Mexican flags and bashed Donald Trump pińatas — clashing with police, at times — to protest the Republican presidential contender's hard line approach to immigration. Yet far from the protests, an increasingly vocal Hispanic minority is speaking out in favor of the brash billionaire. They are backing Trump even in the face of resentment and suspicion from friends and family, who are among the overwhelming majority of non-white voters opposed to the New York businessman's candidacy. "I'm not ashamed to vote for Trump. I'd just rather...

    Apparently Telemundo believes it is perfectly alright to stage events and film them as authentic. In fact, as you can see in the video below, the Telemundo cameraman admits to filmmaker Andrew Marcus of Rebel Marcus that he is indeed staging the event. In this case, two young anti-Trump protesters in San Diego yesterday were holding the Mexican flag upside down and the Telemundo cameraman gave them directions on the proper way to hold the flag. This is followed by a really nasty attitude by one of the protesters including spitting in the direction of Marcus. But, hey, that behavior is understandable...

    Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson said Monday he "absolutely" stands by his preferred running mate's comment comparing Donald Trump's immigration plan to Nazi Germany. "Absolutely, absolutely. In New Mexico here, is my door going to be knocked down because I'm going to get checked for papers?" Johnson, who served as New Mexico's governor for two terms, when asked by CNN's Jake Tapper on "The Lead." Former Massachusetts Gov. Bill Weld -- who is expected to be picked alongside Johnson to run on the Libertarian Party ticket at a nominating convention this weekend -- told The New York Times on Thursday...

    They've tossed the first protester out of the Trump rally in Anaheim. As Trump launched into a speech that would touch on issues such as gun rights and the wall he'd like to build at the U.S./Mexico border, a protester tried to interrupt him. "Get him out of here. Out. Out. Out. Out," Trump, from the podium, told security officials. "Don't hurt him," he added. "I say that for the TV cameras, but don't hurt him." It's unclear what happened to the protester.

    Sen. Marco Rubio is facing intense pressure to run for re-election to his Florida Senate seat, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell taking the lead in a campaign to get him to reconsider his plans to retire. Republicans fear that if Rubio doesn’t run for a second term they could lose his seat. And if Republicans lose Florida they increase their odds of losing their Senate majority altogether.

But while they debate about what they are going to do, dozens of men and women across the country are taking action now and volunteering their time to patrol the U.S. border. These men and women take time off work and away from their families to spend days camping in miserable conditions. They say they do it because of a love for their country and a desire to protect it.

    Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail with a force Tuesday, veering away from his recent calls for party unity to attack New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, a rising star Republican and frequent critic of his campaign, as a poor leader who hasn’t done enough to stem economic problems in her state. “You’ve got to get your governor to do a better job. She’s not doing her job,” Trump said at a convention center here, at one point joking that “maybe” he should run for New Mexico governor. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee also argued Martinez has put her state...

    Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border Patrol Council, testified before the Senate this week and provided some remarkable clarity on subjects which probably strike anyone without a vested interest in electing Democratic candidates as blindingly obvious common sense. The subject at hand was the effect that lax immigration policy has on the illegal drug trade and continued border incursions. The long and the short of it was that when you make it ridiculously easy for people to break the law and provide them with every opportunity to face no consequences for it, they have every incentive to keep...

    If a new U.S. administration blocks the flow of remittances — the estimated $20 billion that Mexicans working in the U.S. send home each year — then joint efforts to stop money laundering and other illicit forms of finance will be dealt a dangerous setback, a senior Mexican official warned Thursday. Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has vowed, if elected, to make Mexico pay to build a wall along the entire Southwest border, even if it means impounding remittance payments. Fernando Aportela, Mexico’s deputy secretary for finance, said any attempt to seize remittances would force Mexicans to hide...

He said Clinton would push for answers if she gets to occupy...

    So who’s ready for an American trial of Mexican drug cartel kingpin Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman? You may be getting understandably excited about the prospect. After all, the gang lord was already moved from the Altiplano lockup further south in Mexico (and the scene of his now famous tunnel escape) to a cell in Ciudad Juarez, just over the border from us earlier this month. And the Mexican Government has approved his extradition. He’s certainly in high demand on this side of the Rio Grande. We’re looking at bringing him to Brooklyn to stand trial, but he’s also wanted for...

Most believe that they will simply be issued a Notice to Appear (NTA) and will be released,” Brandon Judd said before the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest. “Candidly, they are not...

Coming in ahead of Vallejo was Modesto, which was ranked third most dangerous. Stockton took second place and San Bernadino took the uncoveted honors of first place. Oakland was ranked the sixth most dangerous city in the study despite having the largest amount of violent crimes. For every 100,000 residents, 1685 violent crimes...

It will also be the anniversary of the publication of the secret Zimmerman Telegram that helped push Congress and President Woodrow Wilson to declare war on Germany on April 6, 1917. Not many people today know much, or even care, about the Zimmerman Telegram and how it changed the course of American history. World War I is probably not even mentioned in high school these days.

Texas game wardens don’t just cover land issues such as poaching, wildlife management or even illegal chemical dumping.

Later that day, Trump warned, “Crooked Hillary Clinton wants completely open borders.” Indeed, a review of Clinton’s campaign website reveals that her immigration plan is even more radical than that of Barack Obama, who completely suspended enforcement of America’s immigration law and printed hundreds of thousands of work permits for illegal aliens.

The pipeline, which would have crossed the Canadian border, was being developed by TransCanada, which is now suing the government.

Mexican officials are pursuing a counteroffensive to Trump’s incendiary rhetoric, reaching out to U.S. business leaders, looking at ways to better use social media, and even encouraging qualified Mexicans to get U.S. citizenship. But they’re also trying to stay sensitive about taking more high-profile steps, such as running TV ads in an already overheated presidential race that promote Mexico as a friendly, vibrant neighbor and not a cesspool of...

    U.S. immigration officials are planning a month-long series of raids in May and June to deport hundreds of Central American mothers and children found to have entered the country illegally, according to sources and an internal document seen by Reuters. The operation would likely be the largest deportation sweep targeting immigrant families by the administration of President Barack Obama this year after a similar drive over two days in January that focused on Georgia, Texas, and North Carolina. Those raids, which resulted in the detention of 121 people, mostly women and children, sparked an outcry from immigration advocates and criticism...

    A group of Democratic lawmakers, joined by religious leaders of various faiths, have announced a bill that would make it illegal to deny entry to the United States of any alien on the basis of religion. Sponsored by Rep. Don Beyer (D-Va.) and co-sponsored by scores of lawmakers, the vast majority Democrats, the bill comprises a single short sentence: “An alien may not be denied admission to the United States because of the alien’s religion or lack of religious beliefs.” Although the text does not further define the alien in question, Beyer’s office said in a statement that the bill...

    As Donald Trump prepares for an epic battle with “First Enabler” Hillary Clinton, the media is too focused on party unity and are oblivious to the fact that denunciation of Trump by failed elites like the Bush’s as well as the prevarications of Paul Ryan only fuel his rise, as did the opposition of Mexico’s ex-president, the Chinese Communists, the Pope, David Cameron, the Saudis, and Mitt Romney. The political class is discredited with voters hungry for change.

    A Mexican judge has ruled that drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman can be extradited to face charges in the United States, the country's federal court authority said on Monday, days after he was moved to a prison on the U.S. border. He faces charges ranging from money laundering to drug trafficking, kidnapping and murder in cities that include Chicago, Miami and New York. Juan Pablo Badillo, one of Guzman's lawyers, said his client's legal situation was still being processed and that to extradite him now would be a violation of his human rights.

    The northern prison where authorities suddenly transferred convicted drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán is rated as the worst in Mexico’s federal penitentiary system for inmate conditions and other factors, according to the government’s own reporting. The Cefereso No. 9 facility on the outskirts of Ciudad Juárez, which borders El Paso, Texas, did score well on “conditions of governability,” perhaps an indication that authorities believe they can control Guzmán’s environment there and limit the risk of him pulling off a third brazen jailbreak. But Michael Vigil, the former head of international operations for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, questioned the...

    Watching the Sunday news shows, I realize America is finished if we have to rely on the Republican party. I just watched Senator Flake (R Ariz.) smugly go on that we will lose the war on terror because of Trump having a "religious test" for admission to our country. Also he says that's why we will lose the election not because Senator Flake isn't supporting Trump. We are facing Hillary Clinton and these republicans are everywhere saying Trump has to come to each of them and explain himself. Then he has to change to agree with them. These republicans don't...
