    Boo freakin' hoo! The Louisiana Hispanic Chamber of Congress chick is mad because Sen. David Vitter (R-LA) dares to use the word "illegals" 4 times in his effective ad against an opponent (Charlie Melancon) who supported laws that help illegal aliens. Poor baby. The truth hurts. She also makes an absurd statement that "the majority of those here illegally are not even Latino". In fact, 61% are from Mexico alone. But compounding her error she goes after "blonde, blue eyed waitresses" supposedly from Eastern Europe. Uh, who's being "racist" now? Youtube Link HERE To see Sen. Vitter's great ad click...

    With 48 slain in first 6 months of 2010, 2009 toll of 80 may be exceededForty-eight Americans were killed in Mexico during the first six months of 2010 — a deadly pace that appears likely to exceed any previous year of homicides on record, according to the Houston Chronicle's analysis of the U.S. State Department's death registry. The tally doesn't include two Texans reported killed Sept. 30 in separate incidents in isolated areas of Tamaulipas, where the terrorist group known as the Zetas has been warring with their Gulf Cartel rivals in communities all along the Southeast Texas border.

    Communism has taken over theaters in Los Angeles – the largest Spanish-speaking city in the U.S. – boasted the official publication of the Community Party USA. "Communism has taken over the stage at the Los Angeles Opera," began a review of a new Spanish opera, "Il Postino," by Mexican composer Daniel Catán, now receiving its world premier at L.A.'s opera house. The review, published in People's World Weekly, the newspaper of the Communist Party USA, hailed the Spanish-language opera and the number of Latinos present in the audience. "The fact that it is written and performed in Spanish is significant...

    BROWNSVILLE – Brownsville Police Chief Carlos Garcia says the border violence has officially crossed over into the Valley. Two Tamaulipas men were assassinated inside a truck Friday. The chief of police says the investigation has led them to believe this wasn’t a crime committed by someone in the US. “This was a hit ordered by the cartel,” he says. Cameron County Judge Carlos Cascos isn’t surprised to see spillover violence in Brownsville. He says, “it was a matter of time before it trickled down to our community.” Residents say they didn't think it would become a reality. One woman who...

Televisa, the soap-opera powerhouse that is the top media company in Mexico and one of Latin America's biggest, is investing $1.2 billion for a stake of up to 40 percent in Univision, rekindling a relationship damaged in recent years by royalty payment disputes and management fights.

The song comes from the Crocodiles, an indie/fuzz rock group based in San Diego. It uses snippets from Arizona talk radio shows over music. Asked if he were upset, Arpaio said, "Because it means, kill me, right? But, let me tell you something. It doesn't really overly concern me -- freedom of speech." Things like the song come with the territory, Arpaio said. "I'm a high-profile guy. I do a...

    Machete race war accusations are a unique subplot for the new movie. In Machete, race war breaks out between illegal immigrants and white people, although the Machete race war is generally regarded as satire. After all, since this is a "Mex-plotation" movie made by grindhouse devotee Robert Rodriguez, most critics and audience members are unlikely to take it seriously. The whole point of movies like this is to play up extremes for maximum violence, gore and action. But in other circles, the idea of a Machete race war is not to be taken lightly. Alex Jones, the leading source for...

The lawsuit calls Arpaio and his office's defiance "unprecedented," and said the federal government has been trying since March 2009 to get officials to comply with its probe of alleged discrimination, unconstitutional searches and seizures, and having English-only policies in his jails that discriminate against people with limited English skills. Arpaio had been given until Aug. 17 to hand over documents it first asked for 15...

    They took their protests right to the steps of Congress. Hundreds of students, including ten from Georgia, lobbied at the nation’s capitol for “The Dream Act,” which offers undocumented students a chance to become legal citizens. I contend we don’t need “Immigration Reform” but “Enforcement Reform,” meaning the federal government should do its job and enforce the existing laws on the books. However, the children of illegal aliens believe they should get a pass because they didn’t do anything wrong. Here’s my analogy on this situation…. Let’s say one day a family wakes up to the sound of the front...

    One of about every 12 babies born in the United States in 2008 was the offspring of unauthorized immigrants, a Pew Hispanic Center study released Wednesday concluded. According to the study, an estimated 340,000 of the 4.3 million babies born in this country that year had parents who were in the United States without legal documentation. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution stipulates that those children automatically become U.S. citizens, but some members of Congress are pushing to change that provision. That effort -- rooted in the debate over illegal immigration, particularly of people from Mexico -- has created some...

Though the call is already running into stiff opposition and faces extremely long odds of ever succeeding, some lawmakers say it would be...

Imagine if a handful of white Tea party folks walked into a pro-illegal rally and said similar things - it would make every national news broadcast for days on end. But of...

    PHOENIX — Two more Latin American countries added their own objections Tuesday to Arizona's new immigration law. In legal papers filed in federal court, Luis Gallegos, the ambassador to the United States from Ecuador, said his country wants to join Mexico in the fight to convince U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton to block the state from enforcing the law. “Similar to Mexico, Ecuador has a substantial and compelling interest in ensuring that its bilateral diplomatic relations with the government of the United States of America are transparent, consistent and reliable, and not frustrated by the actions of individual U.S....

    PHOENIX — Arizona shouldn't have to suffer from the country's broken immigration system when it has 15,000 police officers who can arrest illegal immigrants, state attorneys argued Thursday in the first major hearing on challenges to a strict new immigration law. [snip] Attorneys for Gov. Jan Brewer told Bolton that the lawsuit — filed by Phoenix Police Officer David Salgado and the statewide nonprofit group Chicanos Por La Causa — should be dismissed because Salgado and the group lack legal standing to sue and that there's no valid claim of immediate harm.

    CBS News Poll analysis by the CBS News Polling Unit: Sarah Dutton, Jennifer De Pinto, Fred Backus and Anthony Salvanto. Public support for Arizona's controversial new immigration law has increased slightly, a new CBS News poll shows, with 57 percent of Americans characterizing the law as "about right" in the way it addresses the issue of illegal immigration. Support for the measure increased five points since May. Since then, the Justice Department has filed suit against the law, claiming that it usurps federal authority to enforce immigration laws. The measure in question, signed into law in April and slated to...
  • Axelrod: ‘No Admin. Has Been Tougher’ on Immigration Enforcement than Obama Admin.

    When making the case for the Obama administration’s legal challenge to Arizona’s new law against illegal immigration, White House senior adviser David Axelrod said “no administration has been tougher” on immigration enforcement than the Obama administration. “We can't have - we can't have a patchwork of 50 states developing their own immigration policy,” Axelrod told host Chris Wallace on the July 11 edition of “Fox News Sunday.” “I understand the frustration of people in Arizona. They want the federal government to step up and deal with this problem once and for all, and that's what we want to do.” “But...

    Pardon me, but if I hear one more time that we can’t deport 12 million illegal aliens I’m headed for the backyard to howl at the moon. Is the American memory so short that we’ve already forgotten the 1950s? This writer is old enough to remember very clearly the mass deportation of illegal aliens that occurred in 1954 in what was officially termed “Operation Wetback” (prior to the age of political correctness). Anyone living in Southern California then, even a kid like me, couldn’t help but take notice of the operation that sent upwards of two million illegal aliens from...

    HOUSTON -- A new website that went live this month, boasts that it is “the first public anonymous publishing service for reporting on illegal alien activity in the United States.” is the brainchild of 26-year-old George O’Brien, who has been following the illegal immigration debate with interest. “I realized I wouldn't recognize an illegal alien if one was standing right next to me,” he said. Anyone can anonymously post information about undocumented immigrants and companies that employ them. O’Brien said he also wants it to be a forum for vigorous debate and a place where undocumented workers can also...

    What if instead of granting amnesty in one fell swoop, we did so incrementally, say, to 20 percent of illegals a year for the next five years? That would still have the same ill effects, you say? OK, how about one million illegals a year until the job is done? I can hear it now: "Whoa, Duke, all you're proposing is to trade a knife through the heart for a death by a thousand cuts. A bad idea implemented more slowly is still a bad idea. And illegal means illegal." But wait -- if Congress passed an amnesty plan, it...

    Immigration reform critics are seizing on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's comments this week that seemed to downplay the number of illegal immigrants working construction jobs in Nevada, even though a recent study found that his home state had the largest percentage of undocumented workers in the country. When a reporter from KLAS-TV in Las Vegas told Reid a 2009 Pew Hispanic Center report found 17 percent of the nation’s construction workers were undocumented, the Nevada Democrat replied: “That may be some place, but it’s not here in Nevada.” Political opponents have tried to twist Reid’s words, saying he believes...
