    RICHLAND COUNTY, SC (WIS) - An employee of a popular restaurant at the Village at Sandhill is facing charges after authorities say he grabbed a server by her hair and pulled her to the ground. The April 19 incident at Red Bowl Asian Bistro was recorded on surveillance video. Jiguang Yang, 68, was arrested and charged with third-degree assault and battery on Friday. Yang, according to the Richland County Sheriff's Department, is the father of the owner of the restaurant. In the video captured on a camera in the kitchen, Yang can be seen pulling employee Cristina Surina’s hair and...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a statement Thursday on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit decision to block President Donald Trump’s travel ban executive order, vowing to take the defense of that order to the United States Supreme Court. “President Trump’s executive order is well within his lawful authority to keep the Nation safe,” Sessions wrote in the statement: The Department of Justice strongly disagrees with the decision of the divided court, which blocks the President’s efforts to strengthen this country’s national security. As the dissenting judges explained, the executive order is a constitutional exercise of the...

    Headline of the Day Poll Why did the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals uphold the block against President Trump's temporary travel ban? The ban clearly violates the Constitution. The court is filled with left wing activists who hate Trump.

    Federal immigration officers who took part in a “raid” at a Michigan restaurant Wednesday first sat and ate breakfast, according to the eatery’s owner. Six U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents came to the Ann Arbor restaurant Sava’s on Wednesday morning, owner Sava Lelcaj said. Two officers were stationed at the front door, two stood at the back exit and two entered the restaurant and had breakfast at the bar with a view of the kitchen, other staff members told Lelcaj, who wasn’t present at the time. The officers who came inside did not initially identify themselves as ICE agents. They dined...

    Federal immigration agents arrested 188 people in a five-day operation ending Wednesday that targeted criminal aliens and people who had violated immigration laws. In the raids, carried out between Saturday and Wednesday, 146 Mexican nationals were apprehended, along with citizens of several countries in Central America, East Asia and Eastern Europe. In total, 177 men and 11 women from 11 different countries were detained. Nearly half the arrests, 93, took place in Los Angeles County. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported Thursday that 169 of the people arrested had previous criminal convictions. Among those who had previous criminal convictions, 43...

    "Sanctuary cities lose access to federal grants that require complying with federal immigration law – cue the histrionics" Late on Monday, Attorney General Jeff Session issued a memorandum to all the “grant-making components” within the Justice Department cutting off any grants to sanctuary jurisdictions. In what will no doubt be a surprise to many in the media who misinterpreted the April injunction issued by Judge William Orrick (an Obama appointee) in the lawsuit filed by the City of San Francisco and Santa Clara County, Sessions’ action complies fully with that order. The May 22 memorandum outlines that any city or...
  • Evidence Piling up That Seth Rich Leaked DNC Emails to Wikileaks

    The evidence is growing that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich leaked over 44,000 emails to Wikileaks. Democrats assert that the Russians hacked into the DNC’s emails. However, Julian Assange of Wikileaks maintains that the Russians didn’t do it. He says a disgruntled insider did it. Two More Voices Last weekend, two more voices spoke up claiming insider knowledge. Kim Dotcom, a friend of Assange and founder of Megaupload, said he was involved with Rich transferring the emails to Wikileaks. He issued a statement today describing his contact with Rich. He said Rich contacted him using the pseudonym “Panda” (Rich loved...

    Philadelphia Inquirer ^ | May 23, 2017 | by The Inquirer Editorial Board
    It is not just irresponsible but ludicrous that Congress and the president would ignore the need for comprehensive immigration reform even as government agents round up and deport scores of the undocumented who deserve an avenue to legal residency in this country. In a special report titled “The Undocumented,” staff writer Luis Ferré Sadurni shared stories of immigrants who entered the country illegally or overstayed their visas and are now living in fear that any day might bring their arrest by the Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). These are men and women living otherwise law-abiding lives...

    The U.S. government spends billions of dollars to “resettle” foreign nationals and transparency on how the money is spent depends on the agency involved. Judicial Watch has been investigating it for years, specifically the huge amount of taxpayer dollars that go to “voluntary agencies”, known as VOLAGs, to provide a wide range of services for the new arrivals. Throughout the ongoing probe Judicial Watch has found a striking difference on how government lawyers use an exemption, officially known as (b)(4), to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to withhold records. All the cases involve public funds being used to resettle...

    Attorney General Maura Healey should consider taking over the prosecution of Bampumim Teixeira, the alleged cutthroat killer of those two unfortunate South Boston doctors. Otherwise he will be prosecuted by the same people who are responsible for allowing the convicted bank robber to walk the streets of Boston when he should have been deported. That would be Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley, who, in a plea-bargain deal, enabled Teixeira to resume his life on the streets and wreak havoc on the lives of two innocent people.

    President Donald Trump’s budget proposal will limit eligibility for two tax credits, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters on Monday, as the administration attempts to convince Congress to overhaul programs benefitting poorer Americans. According to documents released by the White House in advance of the full budget on Tuesday, Trump’s budget would limit eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit to recipients “who are authorized to work in the U.S.” The EITC is a benefit for people with low to moderate income, and the child tax credit similarly benefits low-income households....

    Since President Trump took office, according to ICE, about 11,000 undocumented people with no criminal records have been detained -- twice as many as last year. Now, the number of religious institutions across the country offering sanctuary has doubled to more than 800. --SNIP--- Jim Kenney: Well, you know, Ellis Island had opened in 1892. The bulk of Irish Diaspora came to America in the 1840s. We didn't have papers either. We were undocumented. There was an anti-Italian slur, when I was growing up in my neighborhood called W-O-P—that's without papers.

    WASHINGTON — An estimated 629,000 visitors to the United States — just over 1 percent of all travelers — remained in the county at the end of last year after overstaying their visas as students, workers or tourists, according to a report released on Monday by the Department of Homeland Security. Although the figure represents a tiny portion of the estimated 50 million visitors to the country, Homeland Security officials say the failure of some people to leave when their visas lapse presents a national security risk. Two of the Sept. 11 hijackers, Satam al-Suqami and Nawaq Alhazmi, had overstayed...

On Friday, an urgent call went out to scientists around the world to turn as many telescopes as possible toward the star, to try and crack the mystery of its behavior.

    Officials in Corpus Christi, Texas just discovered that one on their Municipal Court Judges is not a United States citizen. And how was the situation handled? Well, “Judge” Young Min Burkett was placed on unpaid leave, after which “the city council [gave] her 90 days to become a citizen and keep her job.” Yep. An illegal alien has been passing judgement on the activities of actual Americans in a Texas town. But it's OK, because Corpus Christi Mayor Pro-Tem Lucy Rubio said that city officials “never asked during the qualification process to become a municipal judge whether Burkett was a...

A total of 564 illegal alien sex criminals were released for various reasons, including the refusal of their home countries to take them back. [Snip] The report states that 194 of the criminal illegal aliens were convicted of "sexual assault," 95 were convicted of a "commercialized sexual offense," and 275 were convicted of "other sexual offenses."

    Cal State Los Angeles student and "undocumented" immigrant Claudia Rueda, 22, got up Thursday morning to move her family's car (you don't want your car parked on the street on street cleaning day), and when she exited the car she was met by Border Patrol agents and detained . By Friday night, Rueda had been transferred to ICE custody for removal proceedings. That much of the story is not in dispute. Rueda's attorney and friends say the actions are retaliatory and that she was individually targeted Thursday because she's an activist for (illegal) immigrant rights. Rueda's mother was detained...
