  • Illegal from El Salvador Cristian Alexander Zamora allegedly kills boy with machete

    Fire Andrea Mitchell ^ | August 12, 2014
    Yet another one of Obama’s ‘Dreamers’ aka illegals invading this country for amnesty has been charged in the murder of another American. Meet Cristian Alexander Zamora. He’s from El Salvador, and was in this country illegally when he ‘allegedly’ used a machete and a baseball bat to murder a 16-year-old Texas high school student. As usual, the local Houston media reporting on this story leave out the fact that Cristian Alexander Zamora is in this country illegally. We wouldn’t want to derail amnesty now would we. Court records show that Cristian Alexander Zamora, an illegal alien from El Salvador, was charged and fined...
  • The Obama Dallas Immigration Visit – Curious Case of Obama’s “Faith Leaders”

    On July 9th 2014 President Obama made a visit to Dallas Texas for two reasons.   The first reason was fundraising, the second reason was to meet with Governor Rick Perry and “Faith Leaders” to discuss the border crisis....The impression intended would be that President Obama just met with a bunch of religious organizational heads, perhaps priests, pastors and ministers.  Along with “faith based” advocates who are helping to deal with the immediate needs of the illegal aliens, unaccompanied minors, and the larger “border crisis”.You would be wrong.To avoid my calling our President of The United States a liar, I will instead say President Obama is being...

    Glenn Beck has set up Mercury One Children and Family Border Relief Fund to help illegals coming into the United States. He’s already raised $600,000. Beck stated that Obama would not have to step in and ask for $3.7 billion if private charities would pick up the slack and give to the swarm of illegals crossing the border.Is he kidding?  Do we really need more churches and non-profits enabling this blatant attack on America? Rich people and liberal elite billionaires have no skin in the game when it comes to the consequences of illegal immigration so what do they care?It’s the working...

    On Thursday, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) left out immigration in a draft resolution that authorized the House of Representatives to sue Obama for having "unilaterally changed the employer mandate" in the Obamacare law. "In 2013, the president changed the health care law without a vote of Congress, effectively creating his own law by literally waiving the employer mandate and the penalties for failing to comply with it," Boehner said. "That’s not the way our system of government was designed to work. No president should have the power to make laws on his or her own."On June 25, Boehner sent a memo to House...

He said there are risks to the economy and the nation’s health. And he warned the Iraq...

    A new survey from Gallup finds 41 percent want immigration to the United States to decrease. The Gallup poll released Friday found a 6-percentage-point spike in the number of people who want immigration to fall since last year. Gallop asked people about immigration, not illegal immigration. Thirty-three percent of people think immigration levels are fine at the present level, while 22 percent say those levels should be increased. While only 22 percent support increased immigration, that number has been trending up over the past 15 years. In 1999, even more people wanted to see immigration rates fall and only 10...

Shawn Moran, Vice President of the National Border Patrol Council, spoke exclusively with Breitbart News and claimed that Border Patrol management has begun the practice of ordering Border Patrol Agents to stand down and cease pursuing drug smugglers, human smugglers and traffickers, and illegal aliens. He also warned it could lead to illegal aliens entering the country from nations associated with terrorism. “It doesn’t matter whether it’s...

She says the Senate proposal secures the border and provides a "tough but fair" way for immigrants to earn citizenship. A bipartisan group of eight senators drafted the bill and then guided it through the Judiciary Committee to the full Senate. Despite widespread support, the bill's passage is by no means certain

It can be implemented quicker and free of Washington gridlock because it doesn't require congressional action. Through a series of executive orders, and other executive actions, we will begin the process of creating jobs soon after the inauguration of a new president. The quickest way to give our economy a shot in the arm is to deploy American ingenuity to...

It was too expensive and it doesn’t work like it’s supposed to work. ABC news’ report on Napo’s briefing did not reveal how many millions of tax dollars we have already poured into the technology that was somehow supposed to do better than building a real fence, backed up with some armed U.S. troops.

The funding will pay for 1,500 new National Guard troops along the border, a pair of unmanned aerial drones, and military-style bases on the Mexican border. The legislation is paid for by higher fees on foreign companies who have more than 50 employees here on H-1B work visas, which is a good thing because it means perhaps the Democrats are starting to abide by PAYGO.

Border Patrol agent Colleen Agle says the arrests are part of a trend that has seen increasing numbers of Chinese migrants trying to sneak into the U.S. from Mexico.

Napolitano wants what she calls "criminal aliens" off American streets. She is looking at existing immigration enforcement programs to see if taxpayers are getting the most bang for their buck. "That sounds very simple, but it's historically not been done," Napolitano said, speaking to reporters and senior Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials Thursday. About 113,000 criminals who were in the U.S. illegally were deported last year, Immigration and Customs Enforcement said. The agency...

While governor, Huckabee gained favor with Hispanic leaders by denouncing a high-profile federal immigration raid and suggesting some anti-illegal immigration measures were driven by racism. He advocated making children of illegal immigrants eligible for college scholarships. Huckabee's Republican presidential rivals have tried to make an issue of the scholarship plan, portraying him as soft on illegal immigration, an important issue for many GOP voters....

It's pretty vocal, whether it's gigantic or not, and it always gets tons of favorable media coverage. No, the real sleeping giant is the American people.

    CFR's Plan to Integrate the U.S., Mexico and Canada by Phyllis Schlafly, July 13, 2005 The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has just let the cat out of the bag about what's really behind our trade agreements and security partnerships with the other North American countries. A 59-page CFR document spells out a five-year plan for the "establishment by 2010 of a North American economic and security community" with a common "outer security perimeter." "Community" means integrating the United States with the corruption, socialism, poverty and population of Mexico and Canada. "Common perimeter" means wide-open U.S. borders between the U.S.,...

    Illegal Aliens, Drugs, Violence, and Open Borders by Scott Gray Jul 7, 2005 Stakes are growing at the Mexican border. Far away from Washington, hard core criminals are pushing their way into this nation. Already, the violence on border officials has grown since last year. In all of 2004, there were just 118 acts of violence. Thus far in Fiscal Year 2005, there have been 163 acts of violence. Shootings have already doubled since last year, and these statistics only involve a small stretch of Arizona land. Washington may avert its eyes from the border, but there is no way...

    He was treated with courtesy and served promptly, but when Ron Bell walked out of the Jack in the Box restaurant in Orange he wasn't happy. It wasn't the service, Bell tells me. The problem was that everyone - from clients to employees - was speaking Spanish as he ate. More and more, Bell has noticed Spanish everywhere he goes - from Jack in the Box to Carl's Jr. The employees address him in English, but after he's served, solamente se habla español, which doesn't sit well with the Orange resident. "I know how this is sounding," Bell says as...

    A Saudi terrorist suspect might be making his way to the U.S.-Mexico border amid groups of undocumented immigrants, officials with the FBI and the U.S. Embassy said.

El Shukrijumah, 29, a native of Saudi Arabia who may be using a Guyanese, Canadian or Trinidadian passport. Shukrijumah was spotted in Honduras earlier this year, FBI officials said, and used to reside in Trinidad and Tobago,...

    WASHINGTON -- Congress is shortchanging West Texas on money for homeland security needs and is ignoring the potential for terrorism along the U.S.-Mexico border, two top El Paso officials told Democratic House lawmakers Tuesday. Lt. Ray Resendez III, of the El Paso City-County Office of Emergency Management, and El Paso Police Chief Carlos Leon were among a dozen-plus officials from across the country to testify before the House Democratic Task Force on Homeland Security. The task force, which has no legislative authority, was created by Democrats to push for more federal spending on homeland security and to monitor the White...

    CAIRO, March 24 (UPI) -- Arab foreign ministers met in Cairo Monday and, as expected, condemned U.S. aggression on Iraq and called on coalition forces to cease their strikes and pull out. "We call on all forces to withdraw from Iraq and put an end to this attack," said Arab League Secretary-General Amr Moussa at the news conference following the meeting. The final statement also called on Arab states to "refrain from participating" in any attack. As in the last summit early this month, the wording was vague enough so as not to include a direct attack on countries such...

    Bush opens border to Mexican trucks Online Exclusive, Nov 27 2002 U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Y. Mineta today directed the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) to act on the 130 applications received thus far from Mexico-domiciled truck and bus companies seeking to transport international cargo in cross-border services in the United States or to provide regular route services between Mexico and the United States.
