    Some 50 members of migrant caravan reach Mexico, U.S. border By Reuters Published: 22:52 EDT, 19 April 2018 | Updated: 22:52 EDT, 19 April 2018 By Lizbeth Diaz MEXICO CITY, April 19 (Reuters) - A group of 50 Central American migrants who set out from southern Mexico in late March have reached the U.S. border, having endured the long journey despite threats by President Donald Trump to secure the border with National Guard personnel. Since peaking at around 1,500 people, the so-called migrant "caravan" has dwindled under pressure from Trump and Mexican migration authorities, who vowed to separate those migrants...

    On Thursday afternoon, activist Alejandra Pablos - my friend - will stand up in court and wait for a judge to decide the fate of her freedom.

She spent two years in Eloy Detention Center in Southern Arizona. This January, Ale, a dedicated reproductive justice and immigrant rights organizer, was leading chants at...

    In a new effort to empathize with illegal immigrants, New York Gov.

"You want to deport an undocumented person, start with me because I’m an undocumented person.”The governor also explained that he and his family know what it means to be a victim of racial prejudice.“I’m an Italian-American," he explained. "I came from poor Italian-Americans who came here. You know what they called Italian-Americans back in the day? They called...

    Notorious street-gang MS-13 has reportedly ordered its members to “take out” police officers in New York; hoping to send a strong message to authorities following a serious crackdown on the group throughout the region. According to the New York Post, the NYPD is on high-alert after a confidential informant told police that gang members were given a green light to murder local police officers; particularly in the nearby town of Hempstead on Long Island. “The police have been making too many arrests and it’s time to take the streets back and take out (shoot) a cop like we do in...

    Seventh Circuit imposes nationwide injunction on effort to withhold grants from 'sanctuary' locales President Donald Trump's efforts to punish so-called sanctuary cities around the country, as well as the state of California, suffered a serious legal blow Thursday when a federal appeals court in Chicago upheld a nationwide injunction against administration rules requiring localities to cooperate with federal immigration authorities in order to win public safety grants. The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday upheld a nationwide injunction preventing Attorney General Jeff Sessions from imposing the new conditions on grant money as a way to penalize municipalities around...

Women wearing the burqa in public would be fined or asked to go home, the minister told newspaper Politiken. If they live nearby, they will be asked to go home, Poulsen said. A further option...

    A poll released by UC Berkeleys Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society, a left-wing organization, found some shocking results in the far-left state of California, including a desire from a clear majority of 59 percent to increase deportations of illegal immigrants. California, which advertises itself as a progressive sanctuary state for illegal aliens, has been on the front-lines fighting against President Donald Trumps push to finally enforce Americas immigration laws. From all of the reporting coming from our disgraced media, you would be led to believe that not only is all of California opposed to enforcing immigration law,...

    President Trump accused California Gov. Jerry Brown of conducting a charade by agreeing to send National Guard troops to the border with restrictions on their activity and said the federal government wont foot the bill for Browns move. Governor Jerry Brown announced he will deploy up to 400 National Guard Troops to do nothing. The crime rate in California is high enough, and the Federal Government will not be paying for Governor Browns charade. We need border security and action, not words! Trump tweeted.

    California Gov. Jerry Brown's visit to the nation's capital resulted in a war of words with Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins. Jenkins confronted the Democratic governor at his National Press Club event for his state's sanctuary city policies. The reporter had evidence to suggest the sanctuary status has endangered communities. Do critics have a point by suggesting sanctuary city laws "favor the rights of criminal illegal aliens over the rights and the safety of those communities," Jenkins asked . In Brown's defensive answer, he seemed to suggest that Fox News were the first ones to make such a claim....

    The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted 3-1 to support the Trump administrations lawsuit against California over laws that the state passed last year to limit its role in immigration enforcement. The county will file an amicus brief at the first available opportunity, likely on appeal, said Kristin Gaspar, supervisor for District 3 and chairwoman of the board. Were talking about people who are crossing the border illegally, coming into this county and committing a crime and them being let loose probably to commit another crime, said Dianne Jacobs, supervisor for District 2. That creates a public safety issue...

    AP ^ | 4/17/18 | AP
    WASHINGTON (AP) The Supreme Court said Tuesday that part of a federal law that makes it easier to deport immigrants who have been convicted of crimes is too vague to be enforced. The court's 5-4 decision concerns a provision of immigration law that defines a "crime of violence." Conviction for a crime of violence subjects an immigrant to deportation and usually speeds up the process. A federal appeals court in San Francisco previously struck down the provision as too vague, and on Monday the Supreme Court agreed. The appeals court based its ruling on a 2015 Supreme Court decision...
