Deputy District Attorney Nathan Edwards says Orozco-Abundis is an illegal immigrant whose July 17 sentencing will likely be followed by a deportation order for his removal from the country.

He then drove off without stopping or identifying himself, the report said. The driver of the red Jeep Cherokee suffered head, neck and back injuries, the...

    HURON COUNTY, MI (WNEM) - A 911 call for assistance following a disagreement in Huron County actually resulted in six illegal aliens being taken into custody. The Huron County Sheriff says 911 central dispatch received a call just before 10 a.m. Wednesday requesting an ambulance on M-142 near Moore road in Oliver Township.

Instead, he said he found six Mexican men near the roadway who had been working for an out-of-state construction company at a nearby grain elevator construction project....

    The Columbia County illegal-alien building contractor got 15 months in federal prison last Tuesday for harboring illegal aliens himself. Diaz had managed to ensconce himself here illegally in a very nice multimillion-dollar house and build up a substantial contracting business on the back of other illegal immigrants – using the cheap labor to leverage an unfair business advantage over legal contractors who abide by our laws. Yet, Diaz had considerable local support in the courtroom – otherwise sensible business people who somehow thought this guy was getting a raw deal. To heck with the rest of Columbia County and their...

    Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick compared Alabama and Arizona immigration policies to McCarthyism and Jim Crow in a speech Monday to students at Tufts University, according to a story on Boston.com. “The actions of various states to take matters into their own hands have been ham-fisted, self-defeating, and even racist,’’ Patrick was quoted as saying. The tone of Patrick’s speech Monday - he called much of the debate surrounding immigration reform “hysterical and poisonous’’ - has struck some state lawmakers and immigration policy specialists as more vehement than previous speeches, the story said. “The public discourse about immigration is as toxic...

    Brussels is threatening to sue the UK unless it removes illegal curbs on the rights of EU citizens to use the National Health Service and bring their non-EU family members to Britain without a visa. The European Commission’s ultimatum gives ministers two months to comply with the EU rules or face court, setting the stage for a legal battle with Britain over several highly charged immigration issues. On Thursday night Theresa May, home secretary, vowed to fight the Brussels ruling so that ministers can protect rules designed to stop the “abuse” of an EU directive that underpins the single market...

The threat he faced while smoking on his roof? “Snipers,” a former co-worker recalled. ...more...

    At the Maldives' National Museum, smashed Buddhist statues are testament to the rise of Islamic extremism and Taliban-style intolerance in a country famous as a laid-back holiday destination. On Tuesday, as protesters backed by mutinous police toppled president Mohamed Nasheed, a handful of men stormed the Chinese-built museum and destroyed its display of priceless artefacts from the nation's pre-Islamic era. "They have effectively erased all evidence of our Buddhist past," a senior museum official told AFP at the now shuttered building in the capital Male, asking not to be named out of fear for his own safety. "We lost all...

    ...Immigration, however, was another story. The 12-term Texas congressman spent the better part of a 25-minute address thinking aloud about the thorny subject. He talked about how Americans are more accepting of outsiders when the economy is good, but when trouble looms there is a search for scapegoats. "I believe Hispanics have been used as scapegoats, to say, they're the problem instead of being a symptom maybe of a problem with the welfare state," Paul told the group. "In Nazi Germany they had to have scapegoats to blame and they turned on the Jews....

The victim, now 15 years old, told jurors Monday that she'd been riding her bike on Father's Day, 2005, when Alfredo Cruz waved her over. The teen said she rode over to Cruz, now 31, and he picked up the purple bicycle with her on in it and took her into his house. She said Cruz put her bicycle in a closet and ordered her to take off her clothes. "He...

    He should have delayed a month, or a month and a half. Was it the decision to schedule back surgery on July 1, putting Perry’s physical recovery on a collision course with a grueling schedule of fundraisers and campaign events? Was it the failure to prepare better for debates that soon turned disastrous? Was it simply a matter of getting in the race too late? Perry’s own string of verbal goofs, probably some of the worst in modern American political history, were so crippling that it is questionable whether any paid professionals could have pulled him out of the ditch....

Perry represents a lot of opportunity for our family,” Allie Jennings said. Perry announced his candidacy during a rally in Charleston over the summer, and the Jennings were there to see him as Perry emphasized his record on job creation while governor of Texas. In January 2001, a month after Perry took office, there were 10,023,806 jobs in...
