    NIAGARA FALLS, N.Y. (WIVB) -- - A local transgender rights group is sending a message to lawmakers about the immigration crisis. The ‘We Exist’ Coalition says they’re rallying to give a voice to the hundreds of immigrant families and children. It was a strong message coming from the steps of Niagara Falls City Hall Saturday. “We need to have compassion, dignity and as much bravery,” said Angela Burnham, a leader with the We Exist Coalition of Buffalo. She says people need to have compassion for the thousands of children separated from their parents at the border. She says she wants...

    Sabine Durden, an angel mom, said Friday that President Trump saved her from committing suicide after an illegal immigrant killed her only son. Durden said at an event for angel families that she is a legal immigrant and always sought to protect her son from harm. “And I didn’t drag my son … through borders, over deserts, I didn’t place him in harm’s way. I protected my child from harm but I couldn’t do that on July 12, 2012,” she began. Durden’s son, Dominic, was killed when an illegal immigrant took a wrong turn driving an unlicensed truck and struck...

    It’s very sad that Nancy Pelosi and her sidekick, Cryin’ Chuck Schumer, want to protect illegal immigrants far more than the citizens of our country. The United States cannot stand for this. We wants safety and security at our borders!

    By now most Americans, for or against, get the idea. All an individual or family need do to live in America, and off the avails of the American taxpayer, is to arrive at an approved port of entry and “lodge a legal claim to stay.” That’s it. The same understanding animates an entire, parasitical industry that has arisen to coach the claimants in their claims-making. The refugee and illegal-migrant racket sprung-up on the backs of the American people is Third World cronyism at its best. “The Trump administration plans to pay a Texas nonprofit nearly half a billion dollars, this year, to care...

    Not that this will come as a surprise, but it is entertaining to watch NBC’s John Heilemann gleefully explain how “we” have a great opportunity to bludgeon President Trump and the GOP with the faux crisis at the border. In a mere 47 seconds, he gives the game away on a couple of fronts:
  • Despite separations, very few young children handed to Department of HHS [FridayTruthDump]

    CNN ^ | 22 Jun 2018 | Tal Kopan
    Washington (CNN)Though the potential separation of very young children from their parents as a result of the administration's "zero-tolerance" border policy has drawn concern across the country, new data released by the government show very few such children have been impacted. As of this week, the Department of Health and Human Services had more than 11,600 migrant children in its care -- roughly 80% of whom are children who came to the US by themselves. But of that total, a much smaller number were under the age of 13, or what is referred to as "tender age" children, and even...

    Jewish Democrats' libels against Trump mask a dire problem in their ranks. Google search of the terms “Trump Nazi,” brings up 70,900,000 results. There are a number of distressing aspects to this state of affairs. First and foremost, it is pure libel to call US President Donald Trump a Nazi. His daughter Ivanka is Jewish. His daughter-in-law is Jewish. Half his grandchildren are Jewish and his non-Jewish ex-daughter-in-law is half Jewish. How many Nazis have Hanukka celebrations in their homes starring their Jewish grandchildren? Beyond his Jewish immediate family, Trump has shown extraordinary friendship to the Jewish state. It isn’t...

    Is a policy ‘child abuse’ simply because Trump is executing it? Family separation is over, for now. The executive order President Trump signed yesterday fits within his statutory authority, complies with existing law, and directs his attorney general to petition federal courts to grant him greater authority to “detain alien families together.” The title of the order, “Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Separation,” contains its own plea that the legislative branch step up and exercise its constitutional authority. This is all good. Families shouldn’t be separated merely to prosecute misdemeanors or during asylum proceedings. The administration should pursue...

    Border Patrol Agents Shut Down Highways in Maine and New Hampshire With Checkpoints By Matthew Haag June 22, 2018 For 11 hours on Wednesday, drivers who wanted to travel through a remote stretch of northern Maine were asked a simple question: Where were you born? Border Patrol agents closed off all southbound lanes of Interstate 95 north of Bangor, Me., stopping drivers, searching outside their cars with drug-sniffing dogs and refusing to let them pass until they disclosed their citizenship. At least one encounter was captured on cellphone video. “Good afternoon, ma’am, U.S. Border Patrol immigration inspection,” an officer told...

    No, Jay. No way. News just broke that Trump is planning to build more family detention centers – literally prison camps for children and families – here in California. They'd hold almost 100,000 people. We cannot let him so much as break ground on a single one. Trump and his aides want us to think they're slowing things down, fixing the problem they made – but they're actually ESCALATING their efforts to criminalize immigrants, tear more families apart, and incarcerate them indefinitely, in OUR state. It's hard to stomach the mere idea of it. It's horrifying. Inhuman. Evil. We have...

    The United States is preparing to shelter as many as 20,000 migrant children on four American military bases, a Pentagon spokesman said on Thursday, as federal officials struggled to carry out President Trump’s order to keep immigrant families together after they are apprehended at the border. The 20,000 beds at bases in Texas and Arkansas would house “unaccompanied alien children,” said a Pentagon spokesman, Lt. Col. Michael Andrews, although other federal agencies provided conflicting explanations about how the shelters would be used and who would be housed there. There were reports of widespread confusion on the border.

    MSNBC host Joe Scarborough took a shot at both President Trump and his supporters Friday, labeling both as “openly racist.” The scathing comments during “Morning Joe,” which Scarborough co-hosts with Mika Brzezinski, came amid a highly controversial immigration debate over the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy that led to children being separated from their parents after coming across the U.S. border. Scarborough leveled that people “cannot say, ’Oh, I’m just supporting him because he’s giving them hell in Washington.' No, he’s been openly racist, just like we said back in December of 2015, openly racist. “And if you support him, then...

    The Department of Justice announced murder and kidnapping charges for eleven MS-13 gang members in Alexandria, Virginia Friday morning. All of them are from El Salvador, range in age from 20 to 27-years old and are being prosecuted for the killing of teenagers Edvin Escobar Mendez and Sergio Arita Triminio. One of the defendants is not in custody and suspected of being out of the country. The other ten are being held in federal detention. Whether the members are in the U.S. illegally is unclear. "While we note in the press release that all of the defendants are from El...

    Mexican presidential candidate Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) called for mass immigration to the United States during a speech Thursday, declaring it a “human right” for all North Americans. “And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world,” Obrador said, adding that immigrants “must leave their towns and find a life in the United States.” He then declared it as “a human right we will defend,” eluniversal.com reports. While the election is not until July 1, Obrador is by far...

    Two major cable TV news channels cut away from President Trump’s event Friday with families of people killed by illegal immigrants, switching to coverage of illegal immigrant families complaining about treatment at the border. CNN and MSNBC pivoted to the family separation issue even as parents on stage with Mr. Trump said their plight was ignored by the news media. “The mainstream media does not let you know what is really happening,” said Mary Ann Mendoza, who lost her son, Mesa, Arizona, Police Sgt. Brandon Mendoza, in 2014 following a vehicular accident with an illegal alien allegedly driving drunk at...

    Eleven MS-13 gang members – all of whom are illegal immigrants except one – are facing life in prison after being charged in the kidnappings and deaths of two teens whose bodies were dug up in a Virginia park last year. The ages of the male gang members charged Friday ranged from 20 to 27. All of them are from El Salvador and only one – who is believed to have fled the country – is not in police custody, according to NBC Washington.

    Several illegal immigrants were arrested by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents at a checkpoint established along a New Hampshire interstate this week. The Nashua Patch reported that five immigrants from Brazil, China, Ecuador, El Salvador and Mexico were detained and are set to be deported. The outlet reported that this is the third immigration checkpoint held in New Hampshire in the last year. This one was held in Woodstock along Interstate 93, approximately 100 miles from the U.S.-Canada border. Seventeen people were arrested at another checkpoint last month, The Boston Globe reported. "Checkpoint operations are a critical enforcement...

    Some programmers were a little wary when Microsoft bought the company-agnostic programming platform GitHub for $7.5 billion in early June. Now, nearly 100 of them are threatening to leave unless Microsoft drops its contract with the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency, following widespread condemnation of the agency's actions to split up immigrant families at the US-Mexico border, but before President Trump signed his executive order reversing the ICE policy. Microsoft was actually one of the tech companies that most strongly condemned ICE, in fact, and one of the first to take a stand, saying it was "dismayed" and...
