    by John HillStand With Arizona "To me, this seems so simple. So very, very clear and so that's why I am supporting this law." - Governor Phil Bryant (R-MS)Mississippi joins the growing number of states fed up with the Federal failure to enforce immigration laws - and is doing something about it. Last week, State Rep. Becky Currie (R) introduced House Bill 488 (PDF) - the Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act of 2012 - a sweeping piece of legislation which would incorporate the best of previous state bills to come before it. The bill would allow law enforcement...

    LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck says the state of California should issue driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants. The licenses don’t have to be identical to those issued to citizens and can be a provisional license or a nonresident license, Beck told a group of Los Angeles Times’ reporters and editorial writers. “The reality is that all the things that we’ve done – ‘we’ being the state of California – over the last 14, 16 years have not reduced the problem on iota, haven’t reduced undocumented aliens driving without licenses. So we have to look at...

    by John HillStand With Arizona Well the gloves are finally off, and the Death Star of the illegal alien amnesty movement is coming after America's most potent symbol against illegal immigration: Sheriff Joe Arpaio. National Council of La Raza President Janet Murguia, in a press conference in Phoenix, called the Maricopa County lawman "America's worst sheriff" and called on Arpaio to resign from office, claiming "discrimination against Latinos". This marks the first time that La Raza has come against Sheriff Arpaio directly. After the passage of S.B. 1070, NCLR and the SEIU paid to bus in protesters from Los Angeles...
  • Child Tax Credit for Immigrants Without SSN Might be History ()

    (snip) Eliberto’s two sons are US-born. He and his wife are undocumented immigrants and because they cannot have a Social Security Number (SSN), they use an ITIN instead to file their yearly tax return. “The money [Child Tax Credit] is the only one we qualify for, and we end up using almost entirely on the children,” stated Eliberto, who did not provide a last name to protect his family. The Van Nuys resident earns approximately $20,000 a year through full time employment and says that every two weeks approximately $154 disappear from his already small paycheck to pay federal and...

    Woman Was Pushing Child In A Carriage When She Was Hit EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso Police Chief Greg Allen said Tuesday afternoon that a bullet that punctured a woman's right calf in Downtown El Paso Tuesday morning is believed to have come from Mexico.

A shootout happened at the same time in Juarez as when the woman was hit with the bullet. Guillen Middle School, Aoy Elementary and Hart Elementary were put on lockdown...

    "How come the president doesn't thank me for doing what I can for the economy?" Arpaio continued. "I never get any thanks from the White House -- that's okay, it doesn't bother me." Of course, that's the same president who's under "investigation" by Arpaio and the "birther" gang. Arpaio said he took on the "investigation" into Obama's eligibility to be president because he was "doing him a favor" by intending to clear his name. He didn't say which way the conclusion to that "investigation" is going to go, as we'll all have to wait for the results show on March...

    WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is starting to shut down a program that deputized local police officers to act as immigration agents. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have trained local officers around the country to act as their agencies' immigration officers. Working either in jails or in the field, the officers can check the immigration status of suspects and place immigration holds on them.

    The way Omar Sierra remembers it, dozens of day laborers gathered in the Kmart parking lot that day more than 15 years ago. A county mobile health clinic arrived with a mariachi band and free food and offered HIV tests to those waiting for work. Sierra got in line and sat for his test. He heard a commotion, turned and saw men running. He thought someone was offering a job and wondered whether he should go with them. Then he saw the immigration agents. And he ran as fast as he could. More than a dozen day laborers were arrested...

    MONTERREY, Mexico – Imprisoned members of the hyper-violent Zetas drug cartel stabbed and bludgeoned 44 members of the rival Gulf cartel to death and then staged a mass escape, apparently with the help of prison authorities, officials in northern Mexico said Monday. Rodrigo Medina, governor of the northern state of Nuevo Leon, said the prison's director and three other officials have been fired and are under investigation for purportedly helping in the escape. The same was done with 18 prison guards. "Unfortunately, a group of traitors has set back the work of a lot of good police," Medina told a...

    Why do people with ethnic backgrounds scream “Foul!” and people in high positions of power jump on the issue “to protect their rights,” yet ignore the needs of law-abiding citizens? Today, there is a new kind of discrimination looming in this great nation. With the implementation of the California DREAM Act (or the Equal Opportunity Act), citizens have been grossly violated and subjected to discrimination.

    City and law enforcement leaders are calling on Gov. Dannel P. Malloy to reject a U.S. Department of Homeland Security initiative they say would encourage racial profiling and undermine the city and state's power to police themselves. At a news conference today at City Hall, Mayor John DeStefano -- flanked by community leaders and the chief of police -- called the new federal initiative “dangerous and unconstitutional.” The Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) plans to roll out its Secure Communities program in Connecticut this week. Local police departments already share arrest and fingerprint information with...
  • 59% Fear Efforts To Deport Illegal Immigrants Will Violate Civil Rights of Citizens

    While most voters continue to strongly support border control to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into this country, they also remain concerned that legal citizens will be caught up inadvertently in these efforts. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 59% of Likely U.S. Voters are at least somewhat concerned that efforts to identify and deport illegal immigrants will also end up violating the civil rights of some U.S. citizens.

    It’s no secret that Barack Hussein Obama and the rest of the American left have been importing illegal aliens in ever increasing numbers for the purpose of supplementing the “dead voter” turnout every November. And as we all know, if illegals committed voter fraud at a 70% clip in favor of Republicans rather than Democrats, the border would be sealed tighter than a drum and states like California would be wondering what to do with their budget surplus. Last year, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed a measure which authorizes the creation of a state guard, that is, a militia which...

    Lawmakers pressed Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano about border security and deportation policies in two House hearings that lasted much of the day Wednesday. Napolitano’s appearance before a House Appropriations subcommittee on Wednesday morning and the House Homeland Security Committee in the afternoon was supposed to be about her department’s proposed $39.5 billion budget for fiscal 2013, a half-percent reduction from its current budget. [snip] Republicans accused Napolitano of using “prosecutorial discretion” in deciding which detained immigrants to deport, in effect supporting amnesty and DREAM Act policies that Congress has refused to pass.

    By John HillStand With ArizonaThe accelerating trend of local victories against illegal aliens continued Monday, as a Federal Judge in Nebraska upheld most of a hard-fought Fremont ordinance intended to keep illegal aliens out of the city - keeping employment restrictions, but limiting restrictions on illegal aliens obtaining housing in Fremont. U.S. District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp upheld the city's mandate that all employers screen the legal status of job applicants. This was a victory for the people of Fremont, who overwhelmingly approved the measure in 2008, before they were sued by the ACLU and others. The judge blocked...

    Law enforcement is now taking action in direct response to an NBC2 investigation involving potential voter fraud. It comes after we uncovered non U.S. citizens who were registered to vote. The Collier County Sheriff's office is investigating two voters who admit they are not U.S. citizens, yet cast ballots in numerous elections. "This is the first year we've actually had a complaint come in that non-citizens were voting," said Sergeant David White, who is assigned to the county's economic crimes unit. White got the names from the Supervisor of Elections office after the NBC2 Investigators examined jury excusal forms where...

    Under the guise of environmentalism, various federal agencies and departments are blocking Border Patrol agents’ access to critical areas while contributing to widespread lawlessness along the U.S. border, according to experts. Criminals, meanwhile, are taking full advantage of the rapidly deteriorating situation. Despite claims by the Obama administration that the American border is “safer” or “more secure” than ever, sources with knowledge of the reality on the ground say that is simply not true. In fact, as Mexico spirals deeper into chaos, conditions along the border are only getting worse — rapidly. “Far from contained and secure, the Arizona Border...
