  • Adapt Mexico's Immigration Policy

    09/01/2016 8:15:30 AM PDT · by rktman · 7 replies ^ | 9/1/2016 | Daniel John Sobieski
    One hopes that during his visit with Mexican President Enrique Pena Lieto, Donald Trump reminded him of Mexico’s hypocrisy on border security and immigration control. Trump should remind those who alternately accuse him of a racist immigration stance and then flip-flopping when he softens it that border security could be achieved simply by adapting Mexico’s policies. Appearing on Fox News, Chris Cabrera of the National Border Patrol Council noted that it is a felony just to cross the border into Mexico illegally. There is no green card, no food stamps, or pathway to Mexican citizenship.
  • Foreigners Gather in Droves at Border to Illegally Enter U.S

    Illegal immigrants from Central American countries continue to arrive to the Mexican border city of Reynosa. Their hope is to be smuggled illegally into the U.S. by the leading criminal organization in the region known as the Gulf Cartel. Mexican authorities caught a group of 17 Central American individuals inside a house in the border city of Reynosa last week. Police responded to an anonymous tip of kidnapped individuals at a human stash house in the Valadeces neighborhood, information provided to Breitbart Texas by the Tamaulipas government revealed.
  • Gun-Toting Immigration Foe Wins Austrian Presidential Vote

    An opponent of increased Muslim immigration who is famed for carrying a gun everywhere he goes has triumphed in the first round of Austria’s presidential election. Norbert Hofer is the nominee of the Freedom Party, a populist right-wing political party that opposes Muslim immigration and is skeptical of the European Union. Hofer has attracted attention on the campaign trail by carrying a Glock handgun with him and posting a photo of himself at a shooting range. Hofer says he represents a trend of Austrians buying guns to protect themselves from the crime and uncertainty created in the wake of an...

    Those who live close to the Mexican border in Arizona and New Mexico consistently express two sentiments. First, the number of illegals crossing the line has plunged from a flood to a trickle in most places. The feds and the political spinners love that because it allows them to say, with some truth, that the border is as secure as it's ever been. But they leave out the second part. The worst of the worst, the drug smugglers, vagabond bad guys, and mulitiple deports who use the border as a turnstyle are still out there, as dangerous as ever, as...

    Friday evening’s Donald Trump rally in Chicago was broken up by a foul-mouthed mob that infiltrated the hall and forced the cancellation of the event to prevent violence and bloodshed. Brownshirt tactics worked. The mob, triumphant, rejoiced. Friday night cried out for moral clarity. What we got from Trump’s rivals was moral mush that called to mind JFK’s favorite quote from Dante: The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who in time of moral crisis maintain their neutrality. As news outlets have reported, Friday’s disruption at the University of Illinois-Chicago auditorium was a preplanned assault. Behind it were...

    Violence broke out over the weekend at several Donald Trump campaign rallies. Leftwing thugs battled with police in Chicago and St. Louis. One unhinged lunatic tried to storm the stage at a rally in Dayton, Ohio. He was stopped by Secret Service agents. Heaven only knows what he would’ve done had he gotten a hold of Mr. Trump. To be clear – what happened over the weekend was not just an attack on Mr. Trump. It was an attack on the First Amendment. But instead of condemning the professional hooligans -- the political chattering class condemned Mr. Trump. A despondent...

    A sheriff's deputy in Colorado was shot and killed while trying to serve an eviction notice to a 58-year-old man who was believed to have been an active and vocal member of the Occupy Denver movement. Corporal Nate Carrigan, who had served on the Park County Sheriff's force for 13 years, was one of three officers serving the notice to Martin Wirth at his Bailey home, when they were fired upon, the Washington Post reported. Carrigan was killed and in the ensuing shootout, so was Wirth. Master patrol deputy Kolby Martin was shot "multiple times" and air-lifted to a nearby...

    Anyone with a couple of brain cells could figure out the West is bringing about its demise by importing a mass of Muslims. And anyone with a shred of common sense could guess that the total number of invaders in “refugee” camps would begin to thin out just a bit. And by thin out I mean an ever-growing number of them have gone missing. As in thousands and thousands of them, and counting. These disappearances don’t appear to be connected to kidnapping and human trafficking (though I would imagine that will also occur). Instead, some Muslim colonizers are intentionally walking...

    A litigation battle is raging between the states and President Barack Obama over his attempt to impose a nationwide “sanctuary” policy for illegal aliens. Yet, there is no question that existing sanctuary policies implemented by numerous towns and cities have victimized innocent Americans. Those sanctuary policies have enabled illegal aliens to commit thousands of crimes –crimes that would not have occurred had their perpetrators been deported in keeping with existing law. In 2011, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released [4] a study on approximately 250,000 illegal aliens locked up in our federal, state, and local prisons. They represent more than...

    One of the great things about America is that a person accused of a crime is presumed innocent until proved guilty. No matter how many witnesses saw Francisco Sanchez gun down 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle on Pier 14 in San Francisco, he still has the presumption of innocence. That's why I'm pleased that Mr. Sanchez's side of the story has finally gotten out. And, I believe, in the interest of fairness, we should present it: 1) The sea lions are to blame. Sanchez reportedly first told police he was shooting at sea lions.

Emmanuel Jesus Rangel-Hernandez, 19, was arrested last month in connection to a triple-homicide in Charlotte, North Carolina, that claimed the lives of aspiring model Mirjana Puhar, 19, her 23-year-old boyfriend Jonathan Alvarado, and 21-year-old Jusmar Isiah Gonzaga-Garcia. His alleged accomplice, 19-year-old David Ezequel Lopez, was taken into custody Thursday and jailed on three counts of first-degree murder.

    Two illegal aliens in Walker County, Texas, have pleaded guilty to murdering and dismembering a 16-year-old high school student with a baseball bat and a machete in a national park nearly two years ago. According to investigators, the crime was a revenge killing ordered by the infamously violent Latin American gang Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13. Cristian Zamora, 22, and Ricardo Leonel Campos Lara, 19, both from El Salvador, pleaded guilty on April 17 to aiding and abetting each other and others with the murder of 16-year-old Josael Guevara on Sept. 23, 2013, the Houston Chronicle reported.

    The old adage that says “Crime Doesn’t Pay” is no longer operable. Illegal aliens who have invaded the country will be the beneficiaries of your tax dollars once their work permits and Social Security cards are approved. The IRS in their infinite wisdom (My tongue is planted firmly in my cheek) has decided that illegal aliens will be able to collect a fortune from US taxpayers even though they haven’t paid a penny in taxes themselves. A family of three would be eligible for just over $35,000. It’s bad enough that these criminals are allowed to stay here against duly...

Early Saturday, Obama bowed to Democratic Party pressure and reversed course on taking executive action on immigration reform until after the November midterm elections, after leaders voiced concerns that his rulings could cost Democrats their control of the Senate.

In transit these children were potentially abused and sexually molested.

It figures, therefore, that the responsibility must now fall to the United States.

    New estimates show the federal government will spend nearly twice as much fighting global warming this year than on U.S. border security. The White House reported to House Republicans that there are 18 federal agencies engaged in global warming activities in 2013, funding a wide range of programs, including scientific research, international climate assistance, incentivizing renewable energy technology and subsidies to renewable energy producers. Global warming spending is estimated to cost $22.2 billion this year, and $21.4 billion next year. At the same time, the federal government will spend nearly $12 billion on customs and border enforcement this year.

    My original commentary on the issue to spur thoughts about solutions. In all things concerning Politics, it comes down to "the Narrative." Nobody understands and utilizes this better than Democrats (much to our horror and dismay) To control the narrative, they have tried to discourage use of "illegals" preferring "undocumented workers". I read somewhere that the Obama Administration floated use of "customers" (but that one is a dud.) For our purposes I think "Trespassers" is far more powerful and direct to the point. Trespassing is a crime, not a pathway! I've been "tweeting" that for a while now. I hope...

Asked if she willing to risk arrest, she said, "I'm planning on holding my position."

Mexico's lack of cooperation has led to a suspected...
