  • Attorney General Jeff Sessions in Houston, touts crackdown on immigrants suspected in crimes

    08/10/2018 6:18:42 PM PDT · by Extremely Extreme Extremist · 24 replies
    Hewing to the Trump administration's key talking points about fortifying the border, dismantling international crime rings and banning sanctuary cities, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions told federal prosecutors and law enforcement officers in Houston Friday he had their backs and urged the public to support what he called "common sense" measures to reduce gang violence. "This should be obvious: if we want to reduce violent crime we should reduce illegal immigrant crime," Sessions said. "If you're not prepared to lock up dangerous criminals to protect the public, you're not fulfilling your responsibility."
  • Trump's latest immigration injustice is a malicious travesty (Actually brilliant)

    The Trump administration wants you to believe it's devoted to protecting American taxpayers from supposedly welfare-mooching foreigners. Don't. What President Trump is really doing is shutting the door on all but a small sliver of well-heeled immigrants — while telling the "tired," "poor," and "huddled masses" yearning to put cheap food on American dinner plates to get lost. There was a time when immigration restrictionists used to insist that they weren't motivated by nativist considerations because their beef was not with legal immigrants, but illegal ones who don't play by the rules. Trump has ripped the mask off that lie....

  • Judge orders plane carrying deported mother and child turned around, blocks more removals

    Angered that an immigrant mother and her daughter who are plaintiffs in a lawsuit had been deported, a federal judge demanded the administration turn the plane carrying them around and stop removing people from the country who are seeking protection from gangs and domestic violence. The court ruling came in a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union. According to a statement by the ACLU, while U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan was hearing arguments in the case, the court learned that the Trump administration had put a mother and a daughter who are plaintiffs in the lawsuit on a...

    breitbart ^ | JOHN BINDER
    Illegal and legal immigrants are using nearly 60 percent more U.S. taxpayer-funded food stamps than native born Americans, data from the leading immigration research group reveals. A study conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) found that the majority of the more than 1.5 million foreign nationals entering the country every year use about 57 percent more food stamps than the average native born American household. Overall, immigrant households consume 33 percent more cash welfare than American citizen households and 44 percent more in Medicaid dollars. This straining of public services by a booming 44 million foreign born population...

    Life is not without a sense of irony, as we just got word about an illegal alien who broke both of his legs as he was trying to enter the land of the free, home of the brave by jumping over a brand-new (and beautiful) thirty foot high wall. Who said that border walls don’t work? This unpleasant yet symbolic incident took place in the Golden sanctuary State of California on Sunday night, east of San Diego. The Border Patrol caught the incident on video, which shows the perpetrator laying on the ground after jumping over the bollard style border...

    (Reuters) - A federal judge on Thursday ordered an immigrant mother and daughter brought back to the United States after learning during a court hearing that the government had put them on a deportation flight to El Salvador. The pair were among 12 plaintiffs in a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) challenging changes in asylum policies ordered by U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Washington D.C. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan was hearing a request to stay the plaintiffs’ deportations, when the ACLU learned that two of them were already on a flight to Central America, the...

    A federal judge on Thursday threatened to hold Attorney General Jeff Sessions in contempt after discovering that the Trump administration attempted to transfer a woman and her daughter out of the country while an appeal hearing for their deportation was underway. U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan granted the American Civil Liberty Union's (ACLU) request for an emergency order to halt the expedited removal of immigrants seeking asylum from domestic abuse and gang violence after he learned the government had put a plaintiff in the case and her daughter on a flight to Central America.

    The U.S. Army has stopped discharging immigrant recruits who enlisted seeking a path to citizenship — at least temporarily. A memo shared with The Associated Press on Wednesday and dated July 20 spells out orders to high-ranking Army officials to stop processing discharges of men and women who enlisted in the special immigrant program, effective immediately. It was not clear how many recruits were impacted by the action, and the Pentagon did not immediately respond to requests for comment about the memo. “Effective immediately, you will suspend processing of all involuntary separation actions,” read the memo signed by Acting Assistant...

    Federal authorities Thursday announced the arrest of 13 people they say were ringleaders in a massive scheme to exploit illegal immigrants as cheap labor on farms and Hispanic-oriented businesses in Minnesota and Nebraska. They also carried out search warrants on 11 of the businesses Wednesday and nabbed 133 illegal immigrant workers they found at the time. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said they suspect some of the migrants were coerced into working in rough conditions, either by force or threats of being reported to authorities for deportation...

    GRAND ISLAND — During a multi-state operation led by special agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), a series of criminal arrest warrants were executed Wednesday for 17 individuals connected to an alleged criminal conspiracy to exploit illegal alien laborers for profit, fraud, wire fraud and money laundering in Nebraska and Minnesota. In addition to these arrest warrants, authorities also served search warrants for worksite hiring violations at agricultural firms in Nebraska and Minnesota, and federal document search warrants at locations throughout Nebraska, in Sleepy Eye, Minnesota; Appleton, Minnesota; and Las Vegas, Nevada.

    CBS News has learned the number of people caught illegally crossing the United States' northern border is up 142 percent. Border Patrol agents apprehended 445 people entering the U.S. from Canada during the first six months of 2018; that compares with 184 during the same period last year. The northern border is very easy to cross, which was actually the original intention. But it also makes it very difficult to secure. An unguarded metal fence is the only thing keeping smugglers from entering a remote corner of New York State – a small part of the physical security infrastructure along...

    President TrumpÂ’s ban on allowing welfare-dependent legal immigrants to resettle permanently in the United States would likely save American taxpayers about $1,600 a year per immigrant. As Breitbart News reported, the Trump administration is set to roll out a plan in the next month that bars foreign nationals who need government welfare in order to live from resettling in the U.S. Such a ban on welfare importation through immigration has been eyed by the Trump White House since February. Such a plan would be a boon for American taxpayers, who currently spend about $57.4 billion a year on paying for...

    Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Wednesday lamented that the “American we know and love doesn’t exist anymore,” because of demographic changes in the country that she blamed on illegal and legal immigration. Ingraham was reacting to comments from House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who described in a recent podcast interview the way the country has changed over the past few decades, including the decline of the upper-middle class. “She’s kind of right in a general sense,” Ingraham said after mocking Ocasio-Cortez's comments. “In some parts of the country it does seem like the America we know and love doesn’t exist...

    Ever since the Renaissance, the sciences have dealt human beings a steady stream of humiliations. The Copernican revolution dismantled the idea that humanity stood at the center of the universe. A cascade of discoveries from the late-18th to the early-20th century showed that humanity was a lot less significant than some had imagined. The revelation of the geological timescale stacked millions and billions of years atop our little cultural narratives, crumbling all of human history to dust. The revelation that we enjoy an evolutionary kinship to fish, bugs, and filth eroded the in-God’s-image stuff. The disclosure of the size of...

Shortly before 9 a.m. several ICE law enforcement vehicles arrived at the O’Neill Ventures plant on the northwest edge of O’Neill. Nebraska state troopers blocked the entrance.

In one case highlighted by the Washington Post, an illegal alien single mother from Eritrea with two U.S.-born anchor babies decided to flee Las Vegas and head to Canada after she was denied asylum. “So now I am here just hoping it gets better,” Mesfin said as she pushed the stroller, while trying to manage her toddler, toward Canada.
