    TORONTO/MONTREAL (Reuters) - The number of asylum seekers who illegally crossed the U.S. border into Canada more than tripled last month, according to Canadian government data released on Thursday, as migrants worried about the U.S. administration's immigration crackdown head north.More than 3,100 people walked across the border illegally in July to file refugee claims and were arrested, up from 884 in June, the federal government said. Ninety-six percent of them went to Quebec, where an influx of asylum seekers, primarily Haitians, is sparking a backlash from opposition politicians and anti-immigrant groups in the primarily French-speaking province.

    The Trump administration on Wednesday shut down yet another Obama-era program — this one created to give Central American minors fleeing poverty and gang violence in their homeland temporary legal status in the United States. The “CAM parole” program was established in 2014 in response to a surprise spike in the number of unaccompanied minors and families entering the country from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. The program allowed minors who did not make the cut for “refugee status” to enter the U.S. on a two-year, renewable parole if they had a parent already legally in the country.

    Homeland Security Investigations, which is part of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, served a federal search warrant related to sex trafficking of minors in West Oakland Wednesday morning, according to police. The operation began around 6:30 a.m. in the 700 block of 27th Street near West Street. Law enforcement officers were at the scene for hours. "HSI is conducting a criminal investigation, not a civil immigration or deportation action," Oakland police spokeswoman Officer Johnna Watson said in a statement. (Snip) The activist organization By Any Means Necessary is calling for an emergency protest this evening near the scene of the...
  • Shattuck: Pardoning Sheriff Joe Arpaio the right move

    Arizona’s Joe Arpaio became Maricopa County sheriff in 1993 and thus began the dark ages for the bad guys. “It’s not a country club,” Sheriff Joe said about his jail. He wasn’t kidding. When more room was needed, he did it on the cheap by erecting an infamous “tent city” out in the Arizona heat. In 2003, when inmates complained about temperatures over 100 degrees, Sheriff Joe was unimpressed.
  • Immigrant deportations up sharply under Trump’s hard-nosed policies

    WASHINGTON — Before President Donald Trump’s hardline immigration policies took effect early this year, thousands of undocumented residents were given a break from being deported. Government immigration officials would hold off if the illegal immigrants were married to American citizens or longtime residents of the U.S., gainfully employed and had committed no crime other than being in the country illegally. It was, said immigration lawyer Heather Prendegast of Cleveland, the “government’s attempt to be nice.” The cordiality ended when Trump officials instructed Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to get tough on illegal immigration, according to a study by the...

    EXCLUSIVE: President Trump may soon issue a pardon for Joe Arpaio, the colorful former Arizona sheriff who was found guilty two weeks ago of criminal contempt for defying a state judge’s order to stop traffic patrols targeting suspected undocumented immigrants. In his final years as Maricopa County sheriff, Arpaio had emerged as a leading opponent of illegal immigration. “I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” the president said Sunday, during a conversation with Fox News at his club in Bedminster, N.J. “He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He’s a great American patriot and...

    Edith Rivera loved her life in Hampton, Iowa, but for many undocumented immigrants like her, this summer has been a season of fear or flight. It was quitting time. Edith Rivera took one last lunch order, dropped off a basket of tortilla chips and set off from work, heading out to the farm roads where other immigrants feared to drive. Like them, Ms. Rivera, 33, had no legal status in the country where she had lived for 18 years. She had no driver’s license, apart from the long-expired North Carolina identification she held safe, like a talisman, in her wallet....

    A 47-year-old Irishman has been arrested by Border Patrol agents in Northwest Montana for attempting to enter the United States illegally. Agents encountered the Irishman, carrying a large backpack, along the international border near the northeast section of Glacier National Park. He had previously overstayed his US visa and was prohibited from re-entering the United States for an extended period, according to Michael Rappold, public affairs officer for the Havre Sector Border Patrol Station. According to the authorities, the Irishman entered the United States from Canada by walking southbound, through the woods, to avoid detection. Rappold told the press he...

    Rosa Ortega, a mexican born illegal immigrant, registered and voted in 5 different Texas cities for Hillary Clinton. She bragged and bragged about it before finally getting caught. It is almost insulting to our election system that she was able to voted not only illegally, but 5 different times and 5 different places. Even though the portion on her license indentifies her as a non-citizen, she was still able to get through to cast a vote for an election she is not a citizen of. This is exactly what the now President of the United States, Donald Trump, was talking...

    The ACLU filed a class action lawsuit Friday charging that the Trump administration is wrongly accusing young illegal immigrants of gang affiliations as a way to short-circuit their rights and force them into speedy deportations. The lawsuit, filed in federal district court in California, opens yet another legal front against President Trump’s goal of stepped-up immigration enforcement, with advocates hoping to blunt a new effort by Homeland Security to find and deport some of the Central Americans who jumped the border during the Obama era. Immigrant-rights advocates said the government has started to fabricate broad accusations of gang membership or...

    U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein called Thursday for the federal government to reverse the deportation of an Oakland nurse and her husband, saying their removal after more than two decades in the country revealed the “cruel and arbitrary nature” of President Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration. Responding to a front-page Chronicle story about the couple — who plan to leave for Mexico on Tuesday with their 12-year-old son, while leaving behind three older daughters who have legal status — Feinstein’s office set up a meeting Thursday between the California Democrat and the family to discuss their plight. “These are the kind...

    As the number of migrants crossing the border illegally into Canada has increased, the well-meaning Canadians have decided to send in the troops to back up the Mounties at the New York-Quebec border. Canada announced that the 100 plus “soldiers will help the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Canada Border Services Agency at the site.”It is stated that they will be doing construction work on migrant centers…But does anyone actually believe that’s why they’re really there? With border crossings coming in at an estimated 250 souls per day (with a record 400 on Sunday), this is a real crisis....
  • Licenses, ID Cards Sold to Illegal Aliens by Corrupt State Workers Used for Voter Fraud

    A year after Judicial Watch reported a rise in illegal aliens using fake Puerto Rican birth certificates to obtain authentic U.S. passports and drivers’ licenses, the feds have busted a Massachusetts operation run by corrupt state workers. The state employees sold drivers’ licenses and state identification cards to illegal immigrants who bought Puerto Rican documents on the black market, according to the Department of Justice (DOJ). The operation perpetuated voter fraud because some of the false identities and addresses were used to vote in Boston, the state’s capital and largest city. The case is the latest of many illustrating that...

    llegals living in Los Angeles County were handed almost $1.3 billion in welfare payouts between the months of 2015 and 2016, Fox News reported, citing data. That’s billion with a capital “B.” That’s a quarter of what the county distributed to its entire needy population in those same months. Liberals and government elitists always like to make the case that citizens ought to support some cheap-sounding fee- or tax-paying cause by grandly pronouncing, “It’s just the cost of a cup of coffee,” or “If everyone just gave up their Starbucks lattes, it’d pay for itself.” Well, guess what $1.3 billion...

    The current issue of Newsweek (yes, it's still in business!) has a picture of President Trump sitting in a recliner, with snacks and an iPad in his lap, pointing his TV remote at the viewer, blazoned with the headline, "Lazy Boy." Liberals only wish. Last week, the president joined Sens. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and David Perdue (R-Ga.) to announce legislation that would make seminal changes to our immigration laws for the first time in more than half a century, profoundly affecting the entire country. The media have chosen not to cover the RAISE Act (Reforming American Immigration for Strong Employment)....

    Miami announced Friday it will receive a government grant because it has ended its sanctuary city policy. The Hill reported Acting Assistant Attorney General Alan Hanson sent Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez a letter that said the city is now eligible for Department of Justice grants based on its enforcement of federal immigration laws. The website cited a memo Gimenez then sent to the Miami Board of County Commissioners as saying the city will receive $481,347 in Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) grants. Miami-Dade County commissioners voted in February to uphold the city's decision to enforce federal...

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids, implemented under U.S. President Donald Trump's administration, threaten the number of undocumented immigrants who are willing to take advantage of government benefits.Fewer undocumented families have come forward to claim Los Angeles County-funded welfare, which is expected to result in a projected decrease of $200 million over 2016. Trump immigration policies have contributed to a reduction in the number of undocumented people claiming welfare payments, since more people are being napped by ICE. In late April the nationwide figure indicated a hike of 35 percent, before over 200 people being arrested – over a five-day...
