  • Asylum-seekers fleeing U.S. may find cold comfort in Canada’s courts

    Migrants who applied for asylum in the United States but then fled north, fearing they would be swept up in President Donald Trump's immigration crackdown, may have miscalculated in viewing Canada as a safe haven. That is because their time in the United States could count against them when they apply for asylum in Canada, according to a Reuters review of Canadian federal court rulings on asylum seekers and interviews with refugee lawyers. In 2016, 160 asylum cases came to the federal courts after being rejected by refugee tribunals. Of those, 33 had been rejected in part because the applicants...

    NBC News ^ | April 28, 2017
    A prominent Florida eye doctor accused of political corruption was convicted of Medicare fraud Friday, increasing the odds that federal prosecutors could pressure him to testify against New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez. Dr. Salomon Melgen faces 15 to 20 years in prison on 67 counts, including health care fraud, submitting false claims and falsifying records in patients' files, if he doesn't strike a deal before his sentencing, scheduled for July 14. The senator denies any wrongdoing. Federal prosecutors in New Jersey say Melgen's gifts to Menendez were actually bribes. In return, they say, the senator obtained visas for the...

Tesla did not immediately respond to a request for comment on its Mexico hiring plans.

    RUSH: You see what Texas is doing with sanctuary cities? Folks, this is magnificent. Texas is not waiting. They’re just declaring sanctuary cities illegal, and if they have to, they are saying they’re going to jail police chiefs and sheriffs who refuse to enforce the law. They are through. They’re not gonna take it anymore. We have some hand wringers out there in the blogosphere wondering if this is maybe not going a bit far. “Jailing police chiefs and sheriffs? Maybe there’s a better way but maybe Texas knows what it’s doing. We’ll just have the to wait and see,”...

    Mexico’s foreign secretary is planning an all-out legal assault on any future construction of a border wall by the U.S., to include filing suits in U.S. and international courts over possible environmental, human rights and international treaty violations. Foreign Secretary Luis Videgaray told congressional leaders here that Mexico will neither pay for nor cooperate with the wall proposed by the Trump administration, under any circumstances. He called the wall proposal a “profoundly unfriendly” and “hostile” act. “We won’t contribute in any manner, directly or indirectly or financially or in any other form to the continuation of a construction of a...

    There are more than 200 members of the violent, El Salvadorian MS-13 gang in the Long Island, New York area, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The FBI’s Long Island Gang Task Force Director Geraldine Hart told NBC New York in an interview that members of MS-13 “bolster their ranking among other gangs by using violence.” Hart told the media that the MS-13 gang problem, specifically as its members are usually illegal immigrants, is a national issue across the U.S. “This is not a local problem,” Hart told NBC New York. “This is a national and international problem.

The number of unauthorized immigrants from other countries has been on the rise since the end of the recession, hitting an estimated 5.7 million in 2016. Immigrants from Central America and Asia – largely from India and China — are two of the main drivers of that growth. ...

    In a shocker that really should shock no one, this leftist judge reportedly raised over $200,000 and personally gave $30,000 of his own money to support former President Obama, and also gave money to support John Kerry in 2004. . . . The 63-year-old Orrick also issued a restraining order in 2015 against The Center for Medical Progress, an anti-abortion group headed by David Daleiden that secretly recorded meetings of an international group of abortion providers called the National Abortion Federation, to which several Planned Parenthood locations are affiliated with.

    Eddie Ybarra and Francisco Martinez, both in their 40s, work side by side building the walls of two of the newest condo buildings in downtown Los Angeles. They drive pickup trucks to work, park in adjacent lots and both take their lunch break around 10 a.m. That’s about all they share. Ybarra, born in Los Angeles, has built a solidly middle-class lifestyle on more than two decades in the carpenters’ union, earning $40 an hour on top of a pension, healthcare and unlimited vacation days.

His condemnation comes at a time when President Donald Trump, with the help of Attorney General Sessions continues to crackdown on illegal immigration. Furthermore, Vargas has admitted to committing a couple of white-collar crimes. Jose Vargas is known for hating white people. He is known for being a racist. He is known for being a race-baiter. We need more people to call these types of individuals out for racist comments.

    In case you've been confused by the last few days of punditry, let me say outright that France is not America. For example, we recently concluded a presidential election in the United States in which many argued that it was imperative to smash the "final glass ceiling" by electing a female president. One doesn't hear that kind of talk in France about Marine Le Pen, who just came in second in the first round of presidential elections. If she wins the runoff against Emmanuel Macron on May 7, she would be France's first female president. Why is there no "ready...

    Members of Minneapolis' Somali-American community say one of their main business districts -- often referred to as "The Somali Mall" -- is so ridden with crime, they no longer feel safe. Located at 24th Street East and home to dozens of businesses, more than 100 911 calls have been placed from the location since last October, according to police records. Problems include assaults, thefts, fights, and property damage. "I know a friend of mine being beaten up here badly and took his car," customer Asad Abdulahi recalled Monday.

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice...

    Drug smugglers are being helped by the Democratic leaders in Congress who are trying to block funding for a border wall, says President Donald Trump. He is using Twitter to hit the Democrats as enablers for the criminal gangs that are smuggling deadly drugs into American cities and towns around the nation, and which are sending murderous MS-13 gang members into Americans’ neighborhoods. The strategy makes sense because it is true, and because many of the Americans who will vote in 2018 are increasingly concerned about the rising death toll from Mexican-supplied heroin and other drugs. In July 2016, Breitbart...

    Oregon police were hunting an ex-con Mexican national accused of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old Portland girl while her younger sister slept just a few feet away. Previously-deported Santiago Martinez-Flores, 48, has a decades old criminal history and already served time for assault, criminal mischief, unauthorized use of a vehicle and failure to perform the duties of a driver. He was deported in March 2001 after a two-year prison sentence but made his way back to the U.S. sometime before the February sexual assault in which he’s suspected, Fox 12 reported.
