    Lawmakers and police in a major U.S. city have reassured illegal immigrants that they’re protected under longtime sanctuary policies amid demands from open borders advocates that the measures be formalized in writing. A group of Latino activists, clergy and civil rights leaders took to the street this week to command Baltimore officials to further solidify the city’s measures to shield illegal aliens from federal authorities. Like many law enforcement agencies across the nation, Baltimore Police bans its officers from inquiring about suspects’ immigration status. Now emboldened illegal immigrants want the policy in writing to reduce crime and help bridge the...

      Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County, Ariz. (Cochise County Sheriff's office photo) ( - Sheriff Larry Dever of Cochise County, Ariz., one of four Arizona counties contiguous with the U.S-Mexico border, said Friday that the U.S. Border Patrol has pulled back from parts of the border in his and neighboring counties because manning those areas has become too dangerous. “And you frankly have Border Patrolmen--and I know this from talking to Border Patrol agents—who will not allow their agents to work on the border because it is too dangerous,” Dever told in a videotaped interview. “Now what kind of...

  • The Amnesty Memo (Obama to enact “meaningful immigration reform absent legislative action”)

    According to an internal U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services memo going the rounds of Capitol Hill and obtained by National Review, the agency is considering ways in which it could enact “meaningful immigration reform absent legislative action” — that is, without the consent of the American people through a vote in Congress. “This memorandum offers administrative relief options to . . . reduce the threat of removal for certain individuals present in the United States without authorization,” it reads. Also: “In the absence of Comprehensive Immigration Reform, USCIS can extend benefits and/or protections to many individuals and groups by issuing...

    At 85, Phyllis Schlafly has still got game. The anti-feminist founder of the conservative Eagle Forum -- who counts Barry Goldwater's 1964 White House run and the 1982 death of the Equal Rights Amendment as exquisite victories and the "internationalist" presidencies of George Bush 41 and 43 as "not helpful to the Republican party" -- hasn't mellowed one whit. That she made abundantly clear Thursday afternoon at the Conservative Political Action Committee conference in Washington. Lord knows she still looks great, the poufy blonde hair perfectly lacquered, the fitted tweed jacket tricked out with her signature golden eagle brooch and...

    ... The ranches are said to be "near Mines Rd. and Minerales Rd. about 10 miles NW of I-35". Whether it is lone members or squads is not certain. Anonymous sources in law enforcement in the Laredo area tonight have passed on word that US law enforcement agencies are in the area and are weighing their options regarding the ranches. The media has been silent on this incident and some law enforcement in the area says that they are furious that the media is not reporting the whole story of the continued violence along the border. Their frustrations are understandable...
  • Hunter Signs Amicus Briefs Supporting Arizona Immigration Law

    Washington DC – Congressman Hunter has signed two separate amicus briefs supporting Arizona’s immigration law. One brief, written by the Washington Legal Foundation, opposes a lawsuit initiated by the American Civil Liberties Union. The other brief, supported by the House Immigration Reform Caucus, opposes the Obama Administration’s lawsuit to block the implementation of the Arizona immigration law. “Arizona is moving closer to implementing its new immigration law, but trying to stand in its way are the ACLU and the Obama Administration, which assert that states have no legal recourse to protecting citizens from the dangers of illegal immigration,” said Congressman...

    Border: A Hezbollah-like car bomb explodes in a border town as a congresswoman asks Homeland Security about links between the terrorist group and Mexican drug cartels. This is more than an immigration problem. Car bombs are a terrorist specialty and not a drug cartel modus operandi. The heavily armed cartels are more into shootings and kidnappings. So the car bomb that exploded Thursday in Ciudad Juarez, near a federal police headquarters, killing four, was either a change in tactics for the cartels or a sign of teaming up with a terrorist group, one of which could be Iran-linked Hezbollah. Officials...

    A reader just sent us evidence of GOP guv candidate Meg Whitman's latest outreach to Latino voters: A Spanish-language billboard saying she (would have) opposed Proposition 187 and opposes the controversial Arizona immigration law. The billboard, spotted on Highway 99 about 2 miles north of Earlimart in Tulare County, says: "NO a la Proposicion 187 y NO a la Ley de Arizona -- Meg Whitman." ...As we told you about a while back -- and again during our rundown of this week's Field Poll on the guv's race -- Whitman is trying to distance herself from her campaign chair's Pete...

Violent warnings toward American police are not new, but the Nogales incident marked the first time U.S. officials confirmed a threat.

    Arizona’s new law has apparently come just in time. Regardless of the façade presented by Mexican President Philippe Calderone, as he moralizes to the feckless Barack Obama, Mexico is a sinking cesspool people will risk prison terms to escape. The U.S. Border Patrol’s Tucson sector shows a year to year increase of 8,000 apprehensions between October and April. Not even SB 1070 can stem this tide “Roberto Santos” a self identified illegal alien from Mexico doesn’t care about Arizona’s new law designed to detected and expel those who are in Arizona illegally.

  • Wolf Blitzer Puts President Calderón On The Defensive Over Mexico’s Immigration Laws (what?)

    After appearing before Congress and attacking Arizona’s new illegal immigration law, Mexican president Felipe Calderón appeared on CNN to talk shop with Wolf Blitzer. Blitzer, rather surprisingly, turned the tables on the president, opting to ask him instead about his country’s immigration laws, and whether they were just as strict (if not stricter) than Arizona’s. Calderón admitted that laws were stringent in the past but clarified that it is currently not illegal to be undocumented in Mexico. Citing a Washington Times article explaining Mexican immigration laws that incriminated those who willfully participated in illegal immigration or helped illegal immigrants, Blitzer...

    GUATEMALA CITY — Guatemalan drug boss Juan Jose "Juancho" Leon was summoned by Mexican traffickers for what he was told was business. Instead, dozens of attackers ambushed his entourage with grenades and assault rifles, killing Leon and 10 others in a brazen demonstration of power. Mexican drug traffickers are branching out as never before — spreading their tentacles into 47 nations, including the U.S., Guatemala and even Colombia, long the heart of the drug trade in Latin America. The expansion comes amid a military crackdown in Mexico and the arrests of major Colombian suppliers and poses a new challenge for...
