    McALLEN, Texas—Eight illegal aliens with criminal convictions for sexual crimes were caught this past weekend near the Texas border. The arrests took place in McAllen, Rio Grande City, and Kingsville, according information provided to Breitbart Texas by the U.S. Border Patrol. ”All eight men had previously been charged with sexual crimes to include lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14, sexual assault, lewd and lascivious behavior against a child—fondling, and first degree sexual abuse by forcible compulsion,” the information provided by USBP revealed.

    “Sanctuary cities” that refuse to turn over deportable felons to the feds are frequently located in college towns. Yet and still, it’s hard to find academics who will speak ill of them, no matter how much these policies endanger collegians’ lives. Kate Steinle, 32, was not the only recent victim of an attack by an illegal alien with multiple felony convictions. “Department of Homeland Security records show that in just one eight-month period in 2014, more than 8,100 deportable aliens were released by sanctuary jurisdictions,” Hans von Spakovsky writes on The Daily Signal. “Three thousand of them were felons and...

    Lesser-known changes in immigration enforcement announced by President Barack Obama in November could offer a “degree of protection” from deportation for up to 9.6 million of the estimated 11 million immigrants living in the country illegally, according to a new report by the Migration Policy Institute. In contrast, the highly publicized deferred action programs known by the acronyms DAPA and expanded DACA, which have garnered most of the public’s attention and are on hold by a federal court, could grant temporary relief from deportation to as many as 5.2 million undocumented immigrants if implemented. The Department of Homeland Security recently adopted new...

Taylor went on to note that what was happening at our border was not due to a spur of the moment event, or “a humanitarian crisis”, but asymmetrical warfare. The surge we saw at the border was a part of a larger, more chilling event that served one purpose and one purpose only, to show our enemies that our southern border had been compromised and the government...

    This should answer the question of why Donald Trump resonates with the Republican base. Despite having criticized Mitt Romney for being too hardline on immigration in 2012, Trump has until very recently embraced the hardline positions — and those turn out to be very popular among GOP voters. A new poll from CNN shows that normalizing the illegals who have been living here gets 55% support from the general public, but 64% of Republicans prefer deportation: The poll also finds Trump’s positions on immigration are at odds with those of most Americans, but may be providing him a boost in...

    People who entered the United States illegally may be called "undocumented" in politically correct circles, but what is all too well documented is the utter irresponsibility of both political parties in dealing with immigration issues. Both Democratic and Republican administrations have left the border with Mexico porous for years — porous not just for Mexicans but for anybody else, including terrorists from the Middle East. Two very different issues have gotten jumbled together in the political stew called "comprehensive immigration reform." The first and most fundamental issue is whether we are going to have an immigration policy at all. The...

    A federal judge in California has ruled that the Obama administration’s detention of children and their mothers who were caught crossing the border illegally is a serious violation of a longstanding court settlement, and that the families should be released as quickly as possible. In a decision late Friday roundly rejecting the administration’s arguments for holding the families, Judge Dolly M. Gee of Federal District Court for the Central District of California found that two detention centers in Texas that the administration opened last summer fail to meet minimum legal requirements of the 1997 settlement for facilities housing children. -snip-...

The flood of immigrants has slowed from peaks last year, but is still high, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said earlier this summer.

The sweeping decision, by U.S. District Judge Dolly M. Gee, gives the Obama administration 90 days to object, but otherwise she said she’ll order that the government quickly move to release all illegal immigrant children and try to release their parents as well. Judge McGee also ruled that the facilities Homeland Security set up to house...

    Donald Trump’s incendiary rhetoric isn’t making him a lot of friends among his fellow candidates for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, but it’s winning him converts in California. “If I walked into a poll booth right now, and I had to cast my vote, I would vote for Donald Trump,” said Robin Hvidston, the executive director of the Claremont-based We the People Rising, a grass-roots organization pushing for stronger enforcement of existing immigration laws and the enactment of stricter immigration laws. “I wouldn’t have said that three weeks ago. ... Both parties are so ingrained in political correctness and both...

    Border Policy: President Obama vowed to veto a House bill to pull cash from cities that flout federal immigration laws. He's given a lot of odd excuses, but in the end he's siding with criminal illegals who now plague the U.S. There was the wrenching testimony of Jim Steinle, who just this month was walking down a San Francisco tourist pier with his daughter Kate in broad daylight as she was gunned down at his side by a five-times-deported illegal alien. The gunman, Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, told investigators that he lived in the city because its sanctuary city policies shielded him...

    Father of Man Killed in 2010 San Francisco Crash Involving Undocumented Immigrant Escorted From D.C. Hearing After Outburst Father of Man Killed in 2010 San Francisco...A few weeks after 32 year-old Kate Steinle was fatally shot by an undocumented immigrant in San Francisco, conservative Senators went head-to-head with Obama administration officials in an emotional and heated hearing on immigration enforcement policy. But, the tense, emotional moments didn't happen only during the testimony. The emotion of the issue led to an outburst from an audience member about halfway through. Don Rosenberg, of West Lake Village, Calif., says his son, Drew, was...

    The murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco by a seven-time felon and five-time deportee has sparked a nationwide debate about sanctuary cities and immigration policy.We recently learned that in one eight-month period in 2014, more than 8,100 deportable aliens were released by sanctuary jurisdictions. Of those, three thousand were felons and 62 percent had a prior criminal record. Nineteen hundred were later rearrested a total of 4,300 times on 7,500 different offenses.But this debate over sanctuary policies has brought attention to another horrifying result of the federal government’s refusal to enforce our immigration law: the failure to deport convicted...

    While the Spring 2015 Unified Agenda is markedly vague concerning most of its 3,415 regulations, clearly its overarching purpose is to enforce American compliance with an ever-expanding body of “international norms” like those required by the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. Consequently, the 2015 Unified Agenda contains a number of backdoor gun control measures designed to further restrict the possession, storage, sale and acquisition of firearms and ammunition by law-abiding citizens; yet in contrast, the Obama administration intends to lessen such restrictions for non-citizens. Rule 1140-AA44, originally signed by Eric Holder, “would finalize an interim rule published on...

    Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley took his pro-immigration stance to a new level Friday by declaring citizenship "a human right." O'Malley, who has long been an advocate for illegal immigrant rights, has made amnesty a centerpiece of his campaign since he declared two months ago. His comments come in response to Texas health officials asking a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit by immigrant parents who were denied birth certificates for their U.S.-born children. "Denying birth certificates to U.S. citizens is not only outrageous, it's unconstitutional," O'Malley said in a statement on Friday. "The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution...

    Tucked inside a report about President Obama’s new amnesty is the estimation from this liberal think tank there are 820,000 illegal aliens in the United States with criminal convictions, including 690,000 illegal aliens currently residing on U.S. soil who have been convicted of a felony or “serious” misdemeanor. The 820,000 figure is not an estimation of total crimes committed by illegal immigrants—which would be a much higher number—but only those illegal aliens successfully identified, arrested, tried, and convicted.

    How the Left’s expanding of its base through illegal immigration is hazardous to Americans’ health. Even as exotic new diseases and nearly-eradicated old ones keep popping up across the nation, the Obama administration is unconcerned, or some would say, recklessly indifferent, to the public health threat that Third World illegal aliens pose to the American public. This isn't an observation from would-be GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump or some wild-eyed rube -- it's a devastating criticism that comes from two public health experts at the government's own Centers for Disease Control (CDC). It comes as deadly diseases surface or make...

    A briefing today at NCLR (National Council of La Raza) addressed new data from The George Washington University (GW) which show that most U.S. voters have positive views of undocumented immigrants. Most voters surveyed consider undocumented immigrants "family and community oriented" (71%) and agreed they "fill jobs Americans don't want" (67%). A majority disagreed that undocumented immigrants "are 'cheaters' here just to help themselves" (59 percent), "belong to gangs and commit many crimes" (56 percent), or "threaten our traditional American culture" (56 percent). "Among American voters today, there is a substantial, multidimensional and widespread favorable attitude toward undocumented immigrants," said...
