  • Poll: 3:1 Public Support for Trump’s Push to End Catch-and-Release

    Democrats are converting their emotional protests against “family separation” into unpopular calls for the catch-and-release of many Central American migrants into ordinary Americans’ jobsites and schools. The pre-election, pro-migration push is a huge risk, according to a poll by The Economist and YouGov which shows 3:1 public opposition to the Democrats’s catch-and-release policy. That opposition to catch-and-release was reinforced by President Donald Trump’s June 20 Executive Order to keep families together in detention until their appeal is decided by a judge. Many Democrats are pushing their demand that migrants caught at the border be quickly released into Americans’ workplaces and...

The agents discovered the boy just north of the border west of Lukeville in temperatures over 100 degrees. The child claimed that he was dropped off by "his uncle" and that Border Patrol would pick him up.

    The House on Thursday rejected a hardline immigration bill — introduced by Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) — after leadership postponed a second vote on a compromise measure written with centrists. The 193-231 vote came a day after President Trump signed an executive order ending the controversial practice of separating children from parents who cross the border illegally. No Democrats voted in favor of Goodlatte's bill. House leadership had expressed pessimism on the chances for either Goodlatte’s legislation or a second compromise bill written with centrists, both of which come as the growing crisis at the border dominated headlines. The...

    El Paso — Outfitted with his Canon camera and a telephoto lens, Austin Mayor Steve Adler got his first look at the burgeoning “tent city” of Tornillo on Wednesday evening. The brief glance came a day ahead of a scheduled protest at the Tornillo port of call along the Mexican border, where Adler, nearly the entire Austin City Council and mayors from across the nation will protest the practice of separating immigrant children from their family members who illegally cross the U.S. border. On Wednesday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order to end the separations — part of his...

    Heritage Action is opposed to the Border Security and Immigration Reform Act (H.R. 6136) and will include it as a key vote on our legislative scorecard. Separately from amnesty, Congress should provide a legislative fix to the family separation crisis at the southern border. Below is chart comparing the two proposals the House of Representatives may consider this week. H.R. 6136 contains language that helps solve the family separation crisis, but does so in the context of amnesty. Stand-alone legislative fixes similar to what is offered by Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and others can help reunite...

Efren Olivares, a lawyer with the Texas Civil Rights Project, said outside of the federal courthouse in McAllen, Texas, that the 17 immigrants were supposed to have been sentenced Thursday morning for improperly entering the U.S.

    The United States maintains a policy of separating children from their parents in the case of illegal border crossings in the same sense that the United States has a policy of separating parents from their children when those parents are sent to prison for murder or tax evasion or are jailed for unpaid speeding tickets --SNIP-- The more illegals there were in the United States, the easier it was for more to come. It’s the public-policy version of what the tort lawyers call an “attractive nuisance.”

    The Trump administration will suspend prosecutions of migrant parents with children who have been apprehended at the border, a top official told The Washington Post on Thursday. “We’re suspending prosecutions of adults who are members of family units until ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] can accelerate resource capability to allow us to maintain custody,” the official told the Post. The change in policy comes one day after President Trump signed an executive order to stop separating immigrant children from their parents at the border.

    "Our message absolutely is don't send your children unaccompanied, on trains or through a bunch of smugglers," Obama told ABC News on Thursday. "We don't even know how many of these kids don't make it, and may have been waylaid into sex trafficking or killed because they fell off a train." "Do not send your children to the borders," Obama said. "If they do make it, they'll get sent back. More importantly, they may not make it."

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said on Wednesday that some of the 239 migrant children that were separated from their families and sent to his city have bed bugs and lice. De Blasio said he just learned that the children were sent to Cayuga Centers in Harlem, which is contracted by the federal government to help undocumented minors. "How is it possible that none of us knew there were 239 kids right here in our own city?" de Blasio asked, according to a CNN report. "How is the federal government holding back that information from the people...

    Sam Lavigne, a far-left artist and game designer, is an adjunct professor at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. He created a database of 1,595 ICE employees using their LinkedIn profiles and shared it to his 3,600 followers on Twitter Tuesday morning. Antifa, the far-left organization labelled as “domestic terrorists,” picked up the database and spread it to their followers on Twitter hours later. The database also spread to a subgroup on Reddit that encourages spreading personal information — such as where they live and their contact information, known as “doxxing” — of people who they consider “Nazis”...

    Subtitle :Children 'Don’t Need Jail.' President Donald Trump’s executive order ending his administration’s policy of separating migrant families is far from a solution to the border crisis, immigration advocates are warning – and could lead to immigrant children being locked up in detention centers with their parents for “months or years.” “The President doesn’t get any brownie points for moving from a policy of locking up kids and families separately to locking them up together. Let’s be clear that Trump is making a crisis of his own creation worse,” said Karen Tumlin, director of legal strategy at the National Immigration...

    Following outrage that border officials separated a mother from her child with Down syndrome, U.S. officials set the record straight by stating Wednesday that the family was separated because the mother might be a criminal smuggler. “This smuggler has a criminal history including a flight, escape, aiding and abetting making it important that we prosecute,” the Customs and Border Patrol statement reads. Mexico’s Foreign Affairs Secretary Luis Videgaray Caso raised questions at a news conference Tuesday, pointing to the grave mistreatment that families must endure because of the federal government’s zero-tolerance policy. The family was not separated because the mother...

    At least two protesters interrupted President Trump’s rally in Minnesota on Wednesday, with the president mocking one individual’s appearance. The activists held up signs and disrupted the event minutes apart as the president railed against illegal immigration. Trump brushed aside each individual, telling them to “go home” and “say hello to Mommy.” “Was that a man or a woman? Because he needs a haircut more than I do,” Trump said as the second protester was escorted out. “I couldn’t tell,” Trump continued. “Needs a haircut.” The crowd roared, and broke into a “USA” chant.

    A man is facing a serious charge after deputies say he threatened Congressman Brian Mast's children. A federal document filed with the U.S. District Court states Laurence Wayne Key called Rep. Mast's office in Washington, D.C. on Monday morning. An intern told investigators when he answered the phone the caller said, "I'm going to find congressman's kids and kill them. If you're going to separate kids at the border, I'm going to kill his kids. Don't try to find me because you won't." Investigators found the phone number belonged to Key, who lives in Stuart. Documents claim Key has called...
