    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...

    This week, a new CNN survey showed that despite the national outrage over the Confederate flag, a majority of Americans view it as a symbol of Southern pride rather than a symbol of racism. The poll results contrasted sharply with CNNs editorial approach to the flag, which had been to inflame public opinion around the issue. Much the same is happening with Donald Trump, the billionaire Republican running for president: the media hate him, but he is surging in GOP polls. The left has a convenient, and false, explanation for all of this: America is racist, and the Republican Party...

    When Donald Trump announced for President, he made some strong statements about the immigration problems facing our nation. He said that Mexico was "bringing drugs, they're bringing crime, they're rapists, and some, I assume, are good people." In essence, Trump noted that Mexico was not sending their scientists and scholars to America. In his speech, he mentioned the while immigrants are taking jobs in this country; corporations like Ford are setting up plants in Mexico. To deal with the crisis, Trump vowed to build a border fence and have Mexico pay for it. This kind of tough talk resonated with...

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.

    Donald Trump is not the most cautious speaker in the Republican presidential primary field. The Donald speaks his mind -- and it is this personality trait that often lands the red-topped billionaire in political, and often legal, hot water.

Speaking at the New York launch of his presidential run on June 16, Mr. Trump said: When Mexico sends its people, theyre not sending...

Consequently, this law greatly reduces the number of legally authorized immigrants who can come from Mexico and effectively increases the number of immigrants that can come from the rest of...
