    A contentious battle over a law that gives hospitals the power of life or death over patients A contentious battle is taking place at this courthouse in downtown Houston, Texas over a law that gives hospitals virtually unlimited power to decide the fate of patients. Oral arguments took place centering on the question whether the law, called the Texas Advance Directives Act — or TADA for short — violates patients' constitutional rights by depriving them of due process. Texas Right to Life has led the vanguard in opposing this law. Incredibly enough, their main opposition is none other than the Texas Catholic bishops, who argue the...

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday backed the Trump administration’s ability to detain immigrants with criminal records at any time and hold them indefinitely while they await deportation, even if they served time for their offense years ago. In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court reversed the 9th Circuit’s finding that the mandatory detention requirement for certain immigrants with criminal records applies only if an immigrant is detained by officials as soon as he or she is released from jail. In delivering the decision, which split the justices along their ideological lines, Justice Samuel Alito said the 9th Circuit’s interpretation conflicts...

    In these cases, the Ninth Circuit had held that a provision requiring the mandatory detention of non-citizens who have committed certain dangerous crimes applies only if a non-citizen is arrested by immigration officials as soon as he is released from jail. The Supreme Court rejects this interpretation. The Ninth Circuit is reversed and the case is remanded.
  • DHS on track to nab 100,000 illegals at border this month

    The government is on track to catch nearly 100,000 illegal immigrants at the border this month, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Monday, renewing the administration’s plea for Congress to do something. That number would be the worst in more than a decade, and it’s more troubling than the worst years because the migrants are children and families who despite being unauthorized, are almost impossible to deport. “The situation at our Southern Border has gone from a crisis, to a national emergency, to a near systemwide meltdown,” Ms. Nielsen said in delivering an update on the state of her department...
  • Without Immigrant Voters, America Has Not Elected a Democrat President Since 1964

    The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, alternatively known as the Hart-Celler Act, opened America’s borders to the world, and forever changed the rules of political engagement in this nation. No longer was politics fought along primarily ideological (Right versus Left) or historical (North versus South) lines; instead, mass immigration made it exceedingly profitable to play the game of identity politics. By catering to the disparate group identities of new immigrants, the Democrats realized they could lock-up a potentially infinite source of voters. And while it’s true that America’s political culture has always, to some degree, been mired in issues...

    A total of 4,316 non-citizens were arrested at the northern U.S. border in fiscal 2018, and 2,245 of those were 'Mexican citizens'. Mexican nationals are able to fly to Canada 'without a visa'... the uptick in arrests on the northern border makes it the highest level since 2011. Illegal immigration at both the northern and southern borders increased last year. Of the eight Border Patrol sectors on the northern border, the Detroit sector saw the most arrests at 1,930. Vermont's Swanton sector finished second with more than 700 apprehensions. Part of #USBP Maine’s area of responsibility includes the “North Maine...

    More than a dozen Republican senators introduced legislation on Tuesday that would make it easier for Congress to terminate future national emergency declarations, days before the chamber will vote on President Trump's. The legislation, spearheaded by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), would require that Congress pass a resolution extending an emergency declaration after 30 days for it to continue, otherwise it would be terminated. “If Congress is troubled by recent emergency declarations made pursuant to the National Emergencies Act, they only have themselves to blame. Congress gave these legislative powers away in 1976 and it is far past time that we...

  • A Vote For Illegals? Pelosi Says New Immigrants Must Not Have Their Votes Suppressed

    Speaker Nancy Pelosi at a press conference in Austin, Texas, focused on “new immigrants” and their right to vote. When we talk about newcomers, we have to recognize the constant reinvigoration of America that they are, that we all have been – our families. And that, unless you’re blessed to be Native American – which is a blessing in itself that we respect – but that constant reinvigoration of hope, determination, optimism, courage, to make the future better for the next generation, those are American traits. And these newcomers make America more American. And we want them, when they come...

    EL PASO - They came in pairs, by the dozens, hundreds. In one group, as many as 400 migrants crossed the border here in a single, massive group. Many are families. And some would soon sleep for the first time on U.S. soil -- but out in the open, under the stars because federal agents are having a difficult time processing them and getting them to shelter.

I am sure that they will tell you when you visit them – is they want their children back,” she told the House Homeland Security Committee....

    The Trump administration is reportedly planning to freeze the hiring of immigration judges at the Justice Department due to a budgetary shortfall that has left the department searching for resources to combat the massive backlog of immigration cases it faces. BuzzFeed News reported Wednesday evening that the director of the Executive Office for Immigration Review, James McHenry, told immigration court staff earlier in the day that the department is "considerably short of being able to fulfill all of our current operational needs" due to the timing of 2019's budget process. As a result, the DOJ will not be able to...

    Sex trafficking, child prostitution, murder, rape, armed robbery, drug trafficking, human trafficking, extortion, money laundering, prostitution, racketeering, assault, kidnapping, and arms trafficking. This is just a sampling of the criminal, often violent activities engaged in by Mara Salvatrucha, otherwise known as MS-13; a vicious, brutal El Salvadoran street gang now firmly rooted in the U.S. MS-13 was formed in Los Angeles in the late 1970s by El Salvadorans fleeing their own country’s civil war. Today, there are an estimated 30,000-50,000 MS-13 gang members, having spread from LA into nearly every state in the U.S., and throughout Central and South America....

    Border agents have been told to explicitly target Spanish speakers and migrants from Latin America in carrying out a Trump administration program requiring asylum seekers wait in Mexico, according to memos obtained by The Associated Press that reveal some inner workings of a top government priority to address the burgeoning number of Central Americans arriving in the country. The Trump administration launched the program in late January in what marks a potentially seismic shift on how the U.S. handles the cases of immigrants seeking asylum and fleeing persecution in their homeland. The program initially applied only to those who turned...

    Yesterday the Department of Homeland Security released new numbers showing 76,000 illegal aliens crossed the southern border into the United States in February, a significant increase from the 58,000 individuals who crossed in January. Today Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham is holding a hearing about the problem. "Contrary to what some political opponents and media outlets claim the situation at our southern border is dangerous and growing worse. It’s not a hoax. It’s not a manufactured crisis. It’s not a cable television ploy. It is real. It is serious. It is a threat. And it poses a direct...

    For the fourth time in five months, the number of migrant families crossing the southwest border has broken records, border enforcement authorities said Tuesday, warning that government facilities are full and agents are overwhelmed. More than 76,000 migrants crossed the border without authorization in February, more than double the levels from the same period last year and approaching the largest numbers seen in any February in the last 12 years. “The system is well beyond capacity, and remains at the breaking point,” Kevin K. McAleenan, commissioner of Customs and Border Protection, told reporters in announcing the new data. Diverted by...

    As the number of migrant families crossing the southwest border was again breaking records, officials said Tuesday they were building a new facility to manage them, while warning the crush is overwhelming border agents and straining facilities. More than 76,000 migrants crossed the U.S.-Mexico border last month, more than double the number from the same period last year. Most were families coming in ever-increasingly large groups — there were 70 groups of more than 100 people in the past few months, and they cross illegally in extremely rural locations with few agents and staff. There were only 13 large groups...
