    Sen. 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 Tuesdays edition of Fusion TVs 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...

    Conservative firebrand Ann Coulter used her signature sarcasm on Twitter to proclaim herself and Donald Trump right about Americas illegal immigration problem after a young woman was killed by an illegal who had been deported five times. Her comments came after reports on Friday that the suspect, Francisco Sanchez, had already been deported five times before he shot and killed Kathryn Steinle, 32, as she walked along the San Francisco waterfront with her father Wednesday. San Francisco authorities ignored requests from immigration officials to turn him over after they arrested him months ago on drug charges and subsequently released him.

    Slowly but surely, some of Donald Trumps Republican rivals have come out to condemn his remarks about Mexican immigrant rapists and criminals. George Pataki got the ball rolling this week, and criticisms by Rick Perry, Marco Rubio, and others followed. But Ted Cruzwho defended Trump earlier this weekis still praising him. In a Meet the Press preview clip out tonight, Cruz told Chuck Todd,I like Donald Trump. Hes bold, hes brash. He refused to get caught in a bout of Republican infighting. When Todd asked him if rhetoric matters, Cruz said, I salute Donald Trump for focusing on the need...

    NASCAR is the latest corporation to distance itself from Donald Trump. On the same day one of its top sponsors called on NASCAR to take a stance against Trump, the motorsports series said it will not hold its season-ending awards ceremony at the Trump National Doral Miami. "We looked at everything we saw coming down and what we heard from our sponsors and our partners and what we feel we should be doing, and that's what led us to the decision today," NASCAR spokesman David Higdon said Friday at Daytona International Speedway.

    Interesting that he went after Trump for what he said about Mexicans on the same day that he criticized the GOP more broadly for having given up on the black vote. Everyone expected him to run this time on his jobs record but yesterday’s comments were the biggest splash he’s made as a candidate so far.I don’t mean to be cynical about it — these are his heartfelt positions, I’m sure, and good for him — but his choice of topic is probably at least partly a function of his standing in the race.

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. …They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems to us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people." Despite attempts to...

    Donald Trump has renewed his calls for tougher immigration controls in the wake of an illegal Mexican migrant allegedly murdering a woman in San Francisco. The presidential hopeful branded U.S. border controls an 'absolute disgrace' in light of the revelation that Francisco Sanchez, 45, had already been deported five times - and was recently released from jail by officials who routinely refuse requests to hand over illegal immigrants. Sanchez is accused of gunning down Kathryn Steinle, 32, as she walked along Pier 14 with her father on Thursday evening. According to the victim's family, the attack was entirely at random.

    Ann Coulter and Geraldo Rivera clashed on Tuesday night over illegal immigration and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trumps controversial claim that Mexico is sending people that have lots of problems to America. When Mexico sends its people, theyre not sending their best, Trump said when announcing his candidacy. Theyre sending people that have lots of problems, and theyre bringing those problems with us. Theyre bringing drugs. Theyre bringing crime. Theyre rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. Coulter, who takes a hard line on illegal immigration, didnt defend Trump directly but said she believes the government should be using...

    Television personality and real estate mogul Donald Trump said in a recent interview that his views on gay marriage are evolving as society's opinion on the issue continues to change, but the business magnate was quick to note that he continues to support the traditional definition of marriage."I think really what you have is a very changing stance, and you see it changing very rapidly. If you go back 10 years ago it's very different [...] I think I'm evolving, and I think I'm a very fair person, but I have been for traditional marriage. I am for traditional marriage,...

    After Donald Trumps bizarre announcement last week that he was running for president, it occurred to me that many observers are misreading Trump. Many consider him a joke. Not true. Trump knows when he is being outrageous and acts that way consciously to build his brand. Some consider him a menace, pointing out polls that show he would do well if he abandoned the GOP after the primaries and ran as an independent. But Trump is too smart to waste money on a futile effort to capture 270 electoral votes. He will conclude like Michael Bloomberg, another...

    During a town hall style event in Nashville to discuss Obamacare, President Obama referred to some illegal immigrants as gang-bangers, adding they should be deported. Obama made his remarks after he was asked if he would expand Obamacare benefits to illegal immigrants. We should not be encouraging illegal immigration, he remarked to the group. What we should be doing is setting up a smart legal immigration system that doesnt separate families but does focus on making sure that people who are dangerous, people who are, you know, gang-bangers, who are criminals that were deporting as quickly as possible.

    Ah, how sweet of Obama. Allowing these poor young men into our Land OPlenty to do the jobs Americans dont want to do, like rape, murder, drug dealing, etc. Epic and deadly fail. Get a gun folks and watch your six. See below according to the Washington Times: Border Patrol officials are swamped by the number of minors crossing illegally into the United States and frustrated that they cant turn away known Mexican gang members. Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Council Local 3307 in the Rio Grande Valley, said that confirmed gang members in Mexico ...

    Businessman Donald Trump continued his verbal attack against illegal immigrants on Wednesday, in an exclusive interview set to air at 10 p.m. on CNN Tonight with Don Lemon. He has stirred up controversy in recent days for claiming "rapists" and "killers" are migrating over the United States' southern border. Univision and NBC Universal have cut ties with the businessman, refusing to air the "Miss Universe" pageant he partially owns as a result, and Macy's announced Wednesday it was also discontinuing his clothing line. On Wednesday, Trump, who is a Republican presidential candidate, told Lemon he was pulling his facts from...

    RUSH: Folks, now Macy's has told Trump they're gonna get rid of all of his merchandise, and Trump is showing everybody how this is done. I don't care what you think of Trump, but Trump is not backing down. Macy's cans him, says they're not gonna sell his merchandise anymore. Univision? He's suing Univision! He goes on television and he says, "I didn't know it! Some of my best friends are at Macy's; I had no idea they supported illegal immigration. I had no idea Macy's was in favor of this kind of law-breaking." That's the way it's done! I...

    DONALD TRUMP: No, I don't apologize. Everybody knows whats going on. You have illegal immigrants pouring through the country. Theyre incarcerated, many of them are in jails. You have hundreds of thousands of people going to state and federal penitentiaries. That just came out in Homeland Security Report. You just have to take a look at them. The crime is rampant all over the place. You have the illegals just literally pouring -- and not from Mexico only, theyre coming from all over the world. You have them all over South America, but theyre coming from the Middle East. Theyre...
