    Libby Schaaf, the mayor of Oakland, California, made the daringly foolish choice to warn illegal immigrants in the Bay Area that Immigration Customs and Enforcement agents were on their way to raid the place. She posted the warning online 24 hours before ICE was scheduled to arrive.She shared the notice with the intent to "protect" citizens, not frighten them, she wrote."Oakland is safer when we share information, encourage community awareness, and care for our neighbors."It turns out the community is much "safer" having been swept by ICE, as a sizable number of the people the agents arrested in the...

    A meeting between congressional Hispanic Democrats and the Trump administration's top immigration enforcement officer was canceled abruptly Tuesday in the wake of national immigration raids that have roiled Latino leaders. Thomas Homan, the acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), told members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) Tuesday that he would not be attending the meeting, according to CHC aides. CHC Chairwoman Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.) and Homan had a phone call at 2 p.m. to discuss the cancellation. The CHC is expected to hold a press conference later Tuesday. Homan's office said it had received too...

    It all began with the penetration of the Muslim Brotherhood into the White House by Obama. The American people knew of this, as it was reported on many Alternative Media News Sites. Of course, since everyone does not read those sites, some of the American people would not have known. Some may not know now, as this story has gone widely unreported; however, I do have to give credit to Fox News and CNN’s Jake Tapper, as they did report on it, too. NBC reported on the attack, but failed to report on the Muslim spy ring. Obama hired brothers...

    Elizabeth Theiss, president of Stop the Magnet, a political action committee that supports the enforcement of deporting undocumented immigrants, said she was happy to hear the news of the raids on Saturday. "We're thrilled to see that our laws are being enforced," Theiss said. "We feel like finally after a decade of screaming, we are seeing some action. It's just an unusual thing to see politicians do what they promised to do." She believes that removing undocumented immigrants from the country will make the country safer for future generations. "I hope that it continues and we get to see it...

    It's not every day that an American labor union gets investigated for possible ties to two of the world's most lethal terrorist organizations. But Chicago's Service Employees International Union Local 73 isn't an everyday union. Last September 24, FBI agents raided residences in Illinois, Minnesota and Michigan of more than a dozen radical activists in an effort to connect them to the Hamas (Gaza and the West Bank) and FARC (Colombia) guerrilla movements. Two of the occupants were SEIU Local 73 chief steward and executive board member Joe Iosbaker and former local board member-steward Tom Burke. Neither they nor anyone else has...

    EDINBURG, Texas — Teams of gunmen have been running rampant in various communities near the Texas border, storming into homes demanding drugs or robbing victims at gunpoint. In one night, a team of hooded gunmen carrying rifles stormed at least three homes, assaulting the victims inside while demanding cash or drugs. Just one day later, a team of gunmen shot a robbery victim and led authorities in a high speed chase and managed to flee. Information provided to Breitbart Texas by the Hidalgo County Sheriff’s Office revealed that the attacks began on Sunday late night and continued onto early Monday...

    It was still dark outside when “Jonah” (not his real name) heard the pounding on his front door. As luck would have it, he was awake — or mostly awake. He’d gotten up at 4:00 a.m. on October 3, 2013, to see his parents off to the airport. They were leaving on a quick trip to raise money for the children’s charity his father runs. Jonah was 16 at the time, old enough to stay home alone for a short time, but not old enough to deal with what awaited him on the other side of the door. The pounding...
  • Who’s in Charge? Gov. Walker Talks About Wisconsin Witch Hunt; Witch Hunters Not Pleased

    Breitbart ^ | April 27, 2015 | John Hayward
    While visiting Iowa this weekend, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker commented on the wildly out-of-control “John Doe” prosecution waged by partisan Democrats in his state. One of the many objectionable features of this crusade was that the targets were legally gagged from talking about it. Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm responded to Walker’s comments by threatening him. Whatever Chisholm’s virtues as a D.A. might be, a keen sense of irony is evidently not among them.The Wisconsin Witch Hunt has been an abiding interest of mine for years–rarely have so many been terrorized by so few for so little gain, until...

    Among the many questions I’ve received in response to my article on the Wisconsin “John Doe” raids is, “What should happen when executing a search warrant on a home?” If the police are asked to search a home, and there’s no indication of a physical threat, how should they conduct themselves? While the Left has been mostly silent in response to the story, some lefty commenters have responded by asserting that’s simply how searches are conducted. In other words, if the police search a home, that’s how they do it. I reached out to Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke,...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Some truly outrageous things that have gone on in the state of Wisconsin that have happened at the same time as -- and as part of -- the effort to destroy Scott Walker. A similar effort, almost identical effort was made to destroy anybody and everybody who supported him and vote for him or donated money to him. This effort was conducted by law enforcement! Think of it this way: What do you think the greatest fear of the innocent is if law enforcement comes calling? Have you ever thought about this? Maybe some of you have...

    Mexican authorities said Tuesday they staged 153 raids over the last year on a train known as “La Bestia” that rolled toward the U.S. border crowded with hundreds of Central American migrants. Following a big surge in child migrants reaching the U.S. border last year, Mexico’s government cracked down on routes commonly used by migrants to travel from Guatemala to the U.S. border. The head of the National Immigration Institute, Ardelio Vargas, said the 153 train raids were part of 758 immigration inspections over the last year. …
