    A new caravan of Honduran migrants has set out toward the U.S., prompting President Trump to press his case that a border wall is the only way to stop illegal immigration. A group of about 500 migrants, including families, set out from a bus station in the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula late Monday, according to video images on local media and Karla Rivas, an official with ERIC, a local Jesuit organization that monitors migration. Another group of some 600 migrants set out early Tuesday, Ms. Rivas said, adding that they appear to have plans to merge. *** Part...

    An aide to President Obama boasted to the New York Times about lying and manipulating the media to sell the administration’s Iran policy. Mr. Obama himself proselytized for his health-care plan by saying that, despite mandatory requirements that outlawed millions of individual health plans, you’d be able to keep your existing plan. Nor is there the slightest ambiguity now: His administration deliberately lied to the American people about the origins of the 2012 terrorist attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya. We could go on. Candidate Obama, in a formal address, explained that Detroit’s financial troubles were due to its...

    Does everybody understand Trump is trying to make Congress work like it is supposed to?? That includes citizens calling their representatives and telling them what you want them to do. SO, Have you called or written your Representatives and told them to Fund the wall once and for all and quit kicking this can down the road? They keep making the deal the Democrats want now, open the government first then we will deal with the rest...

    The nation's attention is once again focused on the southern border, where President Trump claims the U.S. is facing a "crisis" over illegal immigration. Sometimes forgotten as the nation focuses attention on migrants currently trying to cross the border is that millions of undocumented immigrants continue to live in the U.S. – and most of them work.  -snip Since agriculture is the industry that's most reliant on undocumented workers – and it's my area of expertise and research – let's zoom in on it. Overall, the agricultural industry in the United States has been on the decline since 1950. Back then, farming was a family business...

    I find it interesting that there seem to be few analysis pieces that show the cost of illegal immigration to this country annually, and compare it to the cost of a wall, never mind just $5 Billion of the wall Trump is asking for in the 2019 budget. I tried to construct an analogy that might resonate more with normal people...when you talk about billions here or trillions there, it tends to lose impact. The numbers are too big for us to relate to. Also, I tried to think of it from a business perspective. Imagine you were a farmer...

    Dozens of people would have been killed in an unprecedented terrorist attack in the Netherlands if a seven-strong terrorist cell had not been stopped in time, a Dutch public prosecutor told a court on Thursday. The terrorists were intercepted in September last year following months of investigation. The seven suspects were arrested in the towns of Arnhem and Weert. Police seized 100kg of fertilizer as well as other bomb-making materials at their homes, they said at the time. This week, preliminary hearings in the high-profile case started. “The suspects said goodbye to friends. These suspects were on the way to...

    2,500 miles away, Portland, Maine is experiencing a crisis that redefines the nature of the problem and whom it impacts. Illegal border invaders aren’t just from this continent. Anyone who can fly into South America and make their way up to Mexico has a shot at crossing the border and invading America. Portland shelters, 2,500 miles away, are overloaded by illegal migrants from sub-Saharan Africa who crossed the border and then kept right on going to one of the coldest, but most profitable parts of the country. Portland, like many areas in Maine, attracted migrants because of the generous social...

    In the dem response to Donald Trump's televised argument for a wall, Nancy Pelos accused Trump of "manufacturing a crisis"House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said in a televised address on Tuesday night that President Donald Trump was “manufacturing a crisis” over his fight to get $5.7 billion in border security funding. Pelosi and Schumer rebutted President Trump’s televised address on Tuesday night, contending that President Trump has harmed thousands of Americans with his governmen shutdown. The Democrat leaders said that a border wall along the southern border is both “expensive” and “ineffective.” Pelosi said...

All three gang members have been identified as being in the country illegally, two having entered as unaccompanied minors, ABC7 News reported, citing police. One member who entered as an unaccompanied minor and another have previously been apprehended by the Department of Homeland Security but federal judges later released them. A group of teens visited a Huntington Station Burger King Wednesday afternoon when, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney, a group of gang members began staring at the teens...

    U.S. President Donald Trump said on Friday he is planning changes to the H-1B program that grants temporary visas to highly educated immigrants who work in specialty occupations such as technology or medicine. "H1-B (sic) holders in the United States can rest assured that changes are soon coming which will bring both simplicity and certainty to your stay, including a potential path to citizenship," Trump said on Twitter. "We want to encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S." It was unclear what Trump meant by a "potential path to citizenship" for H-1B visa holders,...

    Estimates suggest that there are 11 million to 13 million Mexican citizens currently living in the United States illegally. Millions more emigrated previously and are now U.S. citizens. A recent poll revealed that one-third of Mexicans (34 percent) would like to emigrate to the United States. With Mexico having a population of about 130 million, that amounts to some 44 million would-be immigrants. Such massive potential emigration into the United States makes no sense. First, Mexico is a naturally rich country. It ranks 19th in the world in proven oil reserves and is currently the 12th-largest oil producer. Mexico certainly...

    Despite advance billing that President Trump's border wall speech would break news and contain new information, it was mostly familiar rhetoric: criminals and drugs, rapists and murderers are coming to America and the wall is the only way to stop them. The president named families who have lost loved ones at the hands of undocumented immigrants. A case could be made, though, that American citizens are killing each other at higher rates during an average weekend in Chicago and other big cities than are killed by immigrants. Whose facts to believe? There are plenty on both sides of the...

    DES MOINES, Iowa–2020 is not 2018. Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds chose U.S. Representative Steve King, 4th District Congressman from Kiron, to serve as one of her ceremonial campaign co-chairs in the 2018 re-election. But she told Channel 13 Wednesday that she will not endorse King in his primary election in 2020. "The last election was a wake-up call for it to be that close," Reynolds said during an interview in her formal office at the Iowa Statehouse, "That indicates that it does open the door for other individuals to take a look at that." King won re-election in 2018. But...
