    U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen in Brownsville, Texas, has allowed the immigration case, Taitz vs. Johnson et al, 14-cv-00119, to advance, setting an injunction hearing on October 29, 2014. Judge Hanen stressed the importance of proceeding cautiously with the case, mentioning the consideration of "consequences" resulting from the outcome. He denied Dr. Taitz' Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order, but set a deadline of Oct. 3, 2014, for Dr. Taitz, Attorney and Plaintiff, to file an amended complaint. He set a deadline of Oct. 17, 2014, for the government’s attorneys, Colin A. Kisor, U.S. Department of Justice, and Daniel...

    McALLEN, Texas (AP) -- A Border Patrol agent pursuing a group of immigrants in a wooded area near the Texas-Mexico border on Friday fired several shots at an armed man who later identified himself as a militia member. Border Patrol spokesman Omar Zamora said agents had been chasing a group of immigrants east of Brownsville Friday afternoon when an agent saw a man holding a gun near the Rio Grande. The agent fired four shots, but did not hit the man. The man then dropped his gun and identified himself as a member of a militia. Zamora said no other...

    California Democratic State Senator Ricardo Lara of Long Beach, CA hailed the passage of SB-1159, lifting citizenship requirements to the state's Business and Professions code. The bill first proposed by the California Democrat in February of this year, will allow illegal aliens to obtain all professional licenses, including the practice of medicine. Senator Lara, long tied to Latino activist groups long-cited for racist attitudes and rhetoric against white, black and Asian Americans, celebrated the passage with an announcement on Twitter. The bill is largely a "red pen" measure in which Lara and his allies in Sacramento simply amending current California...

The cousins said they were scared and nervous. That admission was unnecessary: Their forced smiles showed their fear. It was their first appearance in U.S. Immigration Court since they arrived at the Rio Grande on May 17 with a human smuggler: a coyote paid $10,000 for each boy delivered to the border.

    DALLAS (Reuters) - When Republican Rep.

"I'm supposed to do this in 30 seconds?" he joked, noting the issue's complexity. While he was optimistic about long-term prospects for dealing with border security and immigration, he said, "between now and the end of this Congress, I'm a little less sanguine about it." It has been a question heard repeatedly by lawmakers this month in "town hall"...

    I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, to learn that during the last 6 months, 99% of illegal alien minors who snuck across the border have been released. How can this be? Our president, who never tells a lie, said many times that the illegal kids couldn't stay, that they would be sent home. Instead, it appears that the president misspoke. Or was misunderstood. Or Republicans have twisted his words.

    Sen. Marco Rubio says that if Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid brought the immigration reform bill that Rubio sponsored last year to the floor for a vote now, he would vote against it. Rubio explained that passing his immigration bill wouldn’t be productive, and thus the vote would only be for show. But if “unproductive” and “show votes” automatically deserved a “no,” our solons would rarely vote “yes.” If his bill was meritorious last year, as Rubio believed, it is meritorious now, and should be treated accordingly. Rubio also claims that he doesn’t regret his support for his immigration reform...

    What was a crisis on America's southern border is now turning into a major challenge for school administrators across the country. Tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors have crossed into the U.S. in recent months, and those not being held in health department-run facilities have in many cases been sent to live with sponsors, who are typically extended family members. As the new school year begins, the children, who in many cases don't speak English and have limited reading skills, are showing up for class. This has raised questions in local districts about the strain it could put on teachers....

    President Obama's lawyers are developing a careful legal rationale that would allow the administration to take executive action on immigration enforcement while holding up in a potential court challenge. Republicans are expected to greet any unilateral moves by the White House with intense opposition. The lawyers are expected to argue that Congress has left the administration with too few resources to enforce every law and deport all of the roughly 11.5 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally. That forces the government to prioritize which immigrants to remove from the country.

    HOUSTON, Texas -- Foreign individuals may now seek asylum in the U.S. due to domestic abuse in their home countries. On Tuesday a federal immigration board ruled that a married Guatemalan woman, fleeing a violent husband back home, could obtain political asylum. The ruling is significant, as the Board of Immigration Appeals oversees the immigration courts of President Obama's Department of Justice. The board reportedly acknowledged a culture of violence in Guatemala, which cases its domestic abuse victims to be in a "particular social group." Such jargon implies "a crucial qualification for asylum eligibility," according to the Gate. It is...

So as a self-imposed, end-of-summer deadline to act approaches, Obama’s lawyers are carefully crafting a legal rationale they believe will withstand scrutiny and survive any court challenges, administration officials say. The argument goes something like this: Beyond failing to fix broken immigration laws, Congress hasn’t even provided the government with enough resources to fully enforce the laws already on the books. With roughly 11.5 million immigrants in the U.S. illegally—far more than the government could reasonably deport—the White...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. authorities have agreed to stop pressuring undocumented immigrants in Southern California to sign off on their own deportations under a legal settlement that may later allow some deportees to return from Mexico to seek U.S. legal residency, advocacy groups said on Wednesday. The deal reached between the American Civil Liberties Union and federal officials stems from a lawsuit brought last year on behalf of other immigration rights groups and about 10 immigrants who accepted so-called "voluntary returns" to Mexico. All of the immigrants had strong grounds for being allowed to remain in the United States...

    A protest held by refugees against “monotonous” Italian food was “excessive”, especially at a time when thousands of Italians go hungry, the president of a police organization told The Local. For two days, a group of about 40 asylum-seekers staying at a refugee centre in the Veneto province of Belluno refused to eat the “pasta with tomato sauce, bread and eggs” meals they were given and called to be fed food from their own countries, Libero Quotidiano reported. To reinforce their point, they blocked a street with a wooden bench, put their lunch on the ground along with bags of...

    The mayor of Lynn, Mass. says that some of the illegal aliens from Guatemala who are enrolled in her city’s public schools are adults with graying hair and “more wrinkles than I have.” “They are not all children,” Judith Flanagan Kennedy told reporters at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. “One of the things that we did notice when we were processing some of these students coming in was that they were adults,” she said. She added that the federal government will not allow school officials to verify their ages even though one...

    The Department of Justice’s board of immigration appeals has decided to let Guatemalan women win asylum in the United States if they claim to be victims of domestic violence. The decision creates a huge new incentive for Guatemalan women to cross the U.S. border, because if their asylum claim is accepted, their children get U.S. citizenship, plus the use of federal health, education and retirement programs, regardless of their initial education and work skills. The new decision also means that many of the Guatemalan women who have already crossed the border this year have a new claim for asylum. Coyotes...

    The White House has indicated that President Obama will take some kind of executive action on immigration at the end of summer, but the administration has been tight-lipped about the specifics of such a move. Reports have indicated that the executive action could provide legalization for some five million undocumented immigrants already in the United States – something Lisa Navarrete, adviser to the president of La Raza, explained to Breitbart News in a Tuesday interview would be welcome but really the “floor” number of what her group is looking to accomplish. “We have been very clear with the President that...

    On Monday evening, California Governor Jerry Brown said all Mexicans, including illegal immigrants, are welcome in California. According to the Los Angeles Times, while introducing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who said America is “the other Mexico,” Brown “spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California.” He “nodded to the immigrants in the room, saying it didn’t matter if they had permission to be in the United States.”

    Yes they can and yep, they did — they found a way to backdoor our immigration system and do it in a manner which would make anyone challenging it seem, well, “uncompassionate.”

    After years of fighting for justice for immigrant families, we are on the verge of achieving real relief. With a do-nothing Congress frittering away legislative reform, President Obama has publically promised to adopt aggressive administrative relief early in September. The question now is how much for how many. Immigrants have suffered at historic levels under his administration and President Obama needs to go big in order to restore sanity to the lives of families. We believe that we must return to the White House to make one final big push to dramatize exactly how far relief needs to go. President...

    The president has the power to grant pardons and reprieves according to the US Constitution. The word 'amnesty' isn't used. Nor is there any place in the entire US Constitution where the word 'amnesty' is used. One certainly has to wonder what these voices using the expression 'executive amnesty' mean by it. Odd are they are referring to the president's power to pardon. Perhaps 'amnesty' in their minds means some kind of blanket 'pardon'. Assuming that is what is meant, then a president certainly could issue some kind of pardon from prosecution for specific illegal acts such as illegal entry...
