  • Pelosi to visit border, tour migrant children shelters in San Diego

    06/18/2018 2:42:58 AM PDT · by Libloather · 60 replies
    SAN DIEGO — U.S. House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi will be in San Diego Monday to visit the U.S.-Mexico border in San Ysidro, and to tour a facility housing undocumented immigrant children who have been separated from their families or who arrived in the country unaccompanied. Pelosi is travelling with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and other members of Congress. **SNIP** As a result of enforcing that policy, families who cross illegally have been separated from their children, because those accompanying the children are put into the criminal justice system.

    Crocodile tears are flowing from Democrats and their allies in the Democrat Media Industrial Complex (DMIC) over the Trump administration’s enforcement of immigration laws signed by then-President Bill Clinton in 1997, followed by then-President Barack Obama’s decisions and policies. Immigration laws are a function of every country on the planet. Otherwise, why have borders? Which is something Democrats would apparently prefer not to have — or enforce. Because they want a recurring wave of new underclass voters, dependent upon the state for all their needs. Illegal aliens fit that description perfectly. The latest salvo in the immigration imbroglio stems from...

    The U.S. government’s policy detaining migrant parents while sheltering their children elsewhere is reminiscent of Adolf Hitler’s slave-labor camps, according to a Tweet from former intelligence chief and NeverTrump activist Gen. Michael Hayden. Hayden, who ran the National Security Agency from 1999 to 2005, and was CIA director from 2006 to 2009, Tweeted an image of the entrance to the Birkenau slave-labor camp, with the comment “other governments have separated mothers and children.”

    Evangelist Franklin Graham says the practice separating children from their parents at the U.S.-Mexico border is "disgraceful.” But the North Carolina-based preacher isn’t blaming the Trump administration and its zero-tolerance policy toward people who enter the United States illegally. "I think it's disgraceful, it's terrible, to see families ripped apart, and I don't support that one bit,” Graham, president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said Wednesday in an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network. "I blame the politicians for the last 20, 30 years that have allowed this to escalate to the point where it is today....

    President Donald Trump stunned his fellow world leaders at the G7 meeting when he said he would ship “25 million” Mexicans to Japan, which would result in Prime Minister Shinzo Abe losing his next election. During the gathering in Quebec — which ended with Trump leaving early and refusing to sign the traditional joint communique — the president was talking about what he called Europe’s immigration problem when he turned his attention to the Japanese leader. “Shinzo, you don’t have this problem, but I can send you 25 million Mexicans and you’ll be out of office very soon,” Trump said,...

    The shooting took place shortly after 9:45 p.m. outside of the Coahuila State University Auditorium when a bearded gunman wearing gray clothing walked up to former mayor Fernando Puron Johnston and shot him once in the back of the head.

    Mexico was an unfamiliar place for 19-year-old Manuel Antonio Cano-Pacheco. He was only three years old when his parents brought him to the United States – without a visa. In 2015, as a teenager in Des Moines, Iowa, he qualified for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the initiative spearheaded by President Barack Obama to give temporary protection to undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children. Cano-Pacheco gained DACA status and with it, a work permit, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. But then he was arrested and convicted on two misdemeanor drug charges.

    U.S. authorities and the border state of Tamaulipas kicked off a new program that creates a 'U.S. based' tip-line for callers from Mexico to provide information on the cartel members and their activities. In the past, the Tamaulipas government tried to implement a tip line targeting three Gulf Cartel bosses who at the time were responsible for most of the violence in Reynosa, Breitbart Texas reported. The new program allows for those who may not trust law enforcement in Mexico to share information to a U.S. line. The new program is 'the first time' that multiple U.S. agencies under the...

    Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) said Friday that President Trump is “groveling at the feet of our adversaries” shortly after the president called for Russia to be reinstated the Group of Seven (G-7). Durbin in a tweet mockingly quoted Trump saying of himself, “Nobody has been tougher on Russia than Donald Trump,” before adding: “Now watch President Trump grovel at the feet of our adversary and punish our strongest allies,” a reference to recent tariffs on steel and aluminum imports. While speaking to reporters on Friday prior to departing for Canada to attend the G-7 summit, the president said...

But the shooting deaths of the two U.S. retirees together with their dog early Saturday at their waterfront house south of town has shattered the tranquillity of this quiet community some 380 miles from the U.S. border. Sustained largely by tourism and fishing, Bahia has a year-round...

    A Democratic senator who recorded his dramatic, unsuccessful effort to enter a federal immigration facility in Texas on video over the weekend was "irresponsibly spreading blatant lies about routine immigration enforcement," the White House said Monday. And in a separate statement, the Department of Homeland Security seemingly contradicted Sen. Jeff Merkley's suggestion that he was being systematically barred from immigrant detention centers, saying federal officials took extra steps to grant him access to one on Sunday. In footage uploaded to Facebook late Sunday and seen by more than a million viewers, Merkley, D-Ore., approached the Office of Refugee Resettlement facility...
