  • In Blue California, Democrats On Verge Of Regaining Supermajorities

    California continues to cement its place as a national outlier, with Hillary Clinton clobbering Donald Trump by nearly 30 points as the last ballots are counted. Now, California Democrats looked to have gained a supermajority in the state legislature as well. It appeared in the days following the election that Democrats had picked up enough seats in the California State Assembly regain the two-thirds supermajority that they had lost in 2014, but that Republicans had held on to enough seats to block a supermajority for Democrats in the State Senate.
  • USDA/Mexico Spanish-language flyer: Get kids on food stamps without showing documents

    The Department of Agriculture, via the Mexican government, assures potentially ineligible immigrants that they can still apply for food stamps on behalf of their eligible children without giving information about their immigration status, according to documents released Thursday by Judicial Watch. A USDA Spanish language flyer provided to the Mexican Embassy, according to Judicial Watch, reads that if potentially ineligible immigrants want to obtain benefits for their children they “need not divulge information regarding your immigration status in seeking this benefit for your children.” The Daily Caller has reported extensively about the USDA/Mexico partnership that seeks to promote taxpayer-funded nutrition...
  • Immigration Bill 'Worse Than We Thought,' Legalizes Relatives and Previously Deported

    Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) said today that the Senate immigration bill is even worse than feared, since it legalizes illegals' relatives and even those previously deported: "It's hard to believe, but the Senate immigration bill is worse than we thought. Despite assurances, the border is not secured before almost everyone in the country illegally is given amnesty. The bill guarantees there will be a rush across the border to take advantage of massive amnesty." Rep. Smith says the Senate immigration bill shreds current immigration laws: "And the Senate proposal offers amnesty to far more illegal immigrants than we thought. In...

    Glenwood Springs Post Independent ^ | April 16, 2013 | James D. Kellogg
    The fate of 12 million illegal aliens estimated to be living in the United States is hotly debated in Washington, D.C. Unfortunately, the problem is a symptom of beltway politicians' failure to enforce immigration laws and modernize our legal immigration system. At this point, some form of legal status for many illegal residents is necessary for a practical solution. But every elected leader has an obligation to ensure America remains the land of opportunity. That means stopping the current tide of illegal entry and residency with improved border security and visa tracking. At the same time, we must reformulate and...
  • 'We're being inundated': Arizona group documents border battle with revealing audio, images

    For all the talk in Washington about border security, the one agency charged with providing it isn't sharing a wealth of details. So a group of volunteers -- called Secure Border Intelligence -- has stepped in, working around the clock in Arizona to keep a thorough record of the front lines of the border battle. Using tiny, motion-activated cameras hidden in the desert along known smuggling routes, the group captures images of illegal immigrants streaming into the U.S. Some carry water, others bundles of drugs slung across their shoulders. SBI also records conversations between Border Patrol pilots and agents on...
  • California Bill Could Shut Down Small Restaurants

    04/11/2013 8:46:03 AM PDT · by chessplayer · 79 replies
    The State of California has one of the worst proposals of any legislature in the country this year with a new bill that would force every restaurant and food service business in the state to commission an expensive "risk assessment" test for every menu item. Such a test could cost thousands of dollars for every food item sold. This outrageous and cost prohibitive testing would certainly cause all but the biggest chain restaurants to go out of business almost instantly. In another exercise in nanny-statism, California's State Senate Democrats want this "risk assessment" conducted to determine whether food being sold...

    Roughly 138 million people worldwide, or about 2% of the world’s adult population, want to immigrate to the United States. In China, as many as 19 million adults would like to move to the land of opportunity — the largest number of any country. Based on data provided by Gallup, 24/7 Wall St. reviewed the seven countries where the most people want to come to the United States. Not surprisingly, these countries are all among the most populous in the world. All seven are among the 12 largest by population. While the numbers are quite large, given that these countries...

    The Associated Press is out with an extensive piece today showing just how far Mexican drug cartels have infiltrated American society. The cartel problem is no longer a border problem, it's a problem for the entire country. Violent cartel members are carrying out crimes in our backyards with the potential to develop into something much worse. Mexican drug cartels whose operatives once rarely ventured beyond the U.S. border are dispatching some of their most trusted agents to live and work deep inside the United States — an emboldened presence that experts believe is meant to tighten their grip on the...

    California's Hispanic Population Projected To Outnumber White In 2014 By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - California's Hispanic population will equal that of whites this year before becoming the state's largest demographic group in 2014 for the first time since statehood in 1850, a government report showed on Thursday. That change in the most populous U.S. state will make it the third where whites do not comprise a plurality of the population, after New Mexico and Hawaii. The shift is occurring alongside nationwide growth in the Hispanic population, which grew to 16.7 percent of the total in 2011 from 12.5...

    After Manzano finished his race and secured his medal, he did what athletes typically do at the Olympics. He held up his country's flag -- the Stars and Stripes. The 27-year-old was born in Mexico, but the United States is his country now. His father migrated here illegally from the city of Dolores Hidalgo. Manzano was brought here when he was 4. Like most immigrants, they came in search of greater opportunity. And they found it -- for themselves, and their children. You can't help but be proud of Manzano and the country that allowed him the opportunity to fulfill...

    Two decades ago, Santa Ana was at a crossroads. The Orange County seat was two-thirds Latino, but in citywide elections white Republicans candidates dominated. After a long battle, the city was eventually broken into six council wards, and today all are represented by Latinos. Anaheim faces a similar demographic shift now, and many see it at the root of recent angry protests over the fatal police shootings of two Latino men. According to the latest U.S. census, Anaheim is now majority minority. About 52% of the city's 336,000 residents are Latino, but only a handful of Latinos have ever won...

    Investigators continue to search for a suspected gang member who killed a man and a pony and left another man in critical condition Monday night. A 25-year-old man who witnessed the gang-related shooting in the “Little Mexico” area spoke to a Monitor reporter Tuesday morning. The witness, who declined to reveal his identity, said he was talking with his neighbor Esteban Rangel, 29, outside Rangel’s home about 9:30 p.m. Monday, when a Ford Ranger pulled into the home’s gated entrance. The witness stayed behind while Rangel and two of his friends walked up to the driver, he said. Both parties...

    Authorities in Maverick County found the bodies of two men in their underwear dumped in a canal Tuesday morning. The men haven't been identified, said Chief Deputy Sheriff Ruben Cano. The bodies have been taken to San Antonio for autopsies. One of the men had a large cut on his neck and was wrapped in plastic bags, and may have been killed somewhere else, Cano said. The second victim appeared to have been killed in the canal north of Eagle Pass, he said. Sheriff's investigators, who are working with the Texas Rangers, don't have any leads and haven't found any...

    A local school district is apologizing after an apparent incident of racism at a boys high school basketball game this past weekend. When the final whistle blew Saturday, Alamo Heights celebrated a convincing victory over San Antonio Edison. Alamo Heights Head Coach Andrew Brewer said he was proud of his team. “Tremendously proud,” Brewer said. “Tremendously. It’s the best group of kids.” But it was just after the trophy presentation when the coach was not proud of the chant coming from Alamo Heights fans. “USA, USA, USA,” they chanted. San Antonio Independent School District officials took the chant as a...

    TEMPE, Arizona—An altercation outside a nightclub in suburban Phoenix erupted in shooting, leaving 13 people wounding including two in serious condition, U.S. police said Saturday. Police are looking for two young men as possible suspects after the gunfire occurred shortly before midnight Friday in the parking of The Clubhouse Music Venue, located about 7 miles east of downtown Phoenix. At least two of the injured were hospitalized in serious condition, while the others were treated for wounds that appeared less severe. He said some of the injured drove themselves to the various hospitals in the area so police aren't sure...

    (CNN) -- One day, California wakes up and every single Latino has inexplicably disappeared. No business owner, doctor, nurse, soldier, teacher, entertainer, athlete or politician can be found. No bus driver, farm worker, cook, gardener or nanny. All gone. California -- the ninth largest economy in the world -- grinds to a halt because Latinos have vanished. Chaos and tragedy follow. This scenario is what Sergio Arau's satiric film, "A Day Without a Mexican," explores. This modern-day fable provides a cautionary tale on the assumptions we make about the 11 million unauthorized immigrants who live and work in America every...

    SAN ANTONIO -- Private security bodyguards (PSBs) are a silent majority guarding Mexican nationals seeking asylum in San Antonio and other parts of South Texas. The nationals come to the US legally, hoping to escape drug cartel threats. But once they get here they realize they're still not safe from the ruthless cartels. "They're vigilant about getting their drugs into the United States," said Philip Klein, a private security officer and CEO of Klein Investigations and Consultation. "You either cooperate with them or you die." It's a harsh reality our neighbors to the south deal with on a daily basis....

    LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck says the state of California should issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. The licenses don’t have to be identical to those issued to citizens and can be a provisional license or a nonresident license, Beck told a group of Los Angeles Times’ reporters and editorial writers. “The reality is that all the things that we’ve done – ‘we’ being the state of California – over the last 14, 16 years have not reduced the problem on iota, haven’t reduced undocumented aliens driving without licenses. So we have to look at...

    It’s no secret that Barack Hussein Obama and the rest of the American left have been importing illegal aliens in ever increasing numbers for the purpose of supplementing the “dead voter” turnout every November. And as we all know, if illegals committed voter fraud at a 70% clip in favor of Republicans rather than Democrats, the border would be sealed tighter than a drum and states like California would be wondering what to do with their budget surplus. Last year, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed a measure which authorizes the creation of a state guard, that is, a militia which...
