    A federal judge on Friday reportedly found four women guilty of misdemeanors after they illegally entered a national wildlife refuge along the US-Mexico border to leave water and food for undocumented migrants. According to The Arizona Republic, the four women were aid volunteers for No More Deaths, an advocacy group dedicated to ending the deaths of undocumented immigrants crossing desert regions near the southern border. One of the volunteers with the group, Natalie Hoffman, was found guilty of three charges against her, including operating a vehicle inside the Cabeza Prieta national wildlife refuge, entering a federally-protected wilderness area without a...
  • Dear Mr. President, You cannot make a deal with Satan or his pit of vipers in the congress.

    Dear Mr. President, You cannot make a deal with Satan or his pit of vipers in the congress. Period. If you cave on this you will be a one-term president. The democrats will not come your way to accept your offer no matter what you offer. They sense weakness on your part and they're going to go for your jugular. They couldn't care less about the out of work government workers. This is a sledge hammer they intend to use on you no matter what. The only way you can win in this situation is to stand your ground.

    Breitbart ^ | JAN. 18, 2019 2:21 | Joel B. Pollak
    Steven A. Camarota, director of research, at the Center for Immigration Studies, told Breitbart News on Friday that “between one-fifth and one-fourth of the students in LAUSD are the children of illegal immigrants — though most of those were born in the U.S.” He said that a smaller percentage of the students (“in the single digits”) are illegal immigrants themselves. With roughly 700,000 students in the district, at a cost of over $13,000 per student, that means the district could be spending about $1.8 billion annually on educating the children of illegal immigrants. The total annual expenses for the LAUSD...

    The bloodiest war that the United States ever fought did not take place on a foreign battlefield, but raged on American soil, as brother took up arms against brother over the issue of slavery. The war began with the bombardment of Fort Sumter, South Carolina on April 12, 1861, and ended in the Spring of 1865, when Robert E. Lee surrendered the Confederate army to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox Courthouse. The modest brick structure standing forlornly in a field in central Virginia belies the magnitude of the human tragedy, with an estimated 620,000 killed – almost as many as...

    It’s not just her bills that are sparking attention. State Sen. Amanda Chase, R-Chesterfield, generated buzz on Tuesday by presenting them while wearing her .38-caliber revolver in a custom-made holster. The first-term senator — a fan of government transparency and opponent of the Equal Rights Amendment — said she wore the gun following an incident Monday in which Capitol Police were called after immigration-rights supporters confronted Sen. Dick Black, R-Loudoun. Chase said she always carries her gun in concealed fashion but decided Tuesday was a good day to carry openly when she presented her bills in the Senate Privileges and...

    Texas’ undocumented immigrant population grew 5% over the last seven years, according to information provided by the Center for Migration Studies. Nationwide, however, the undocumented population decreased by 9%, according to a new report by the center. Though the state’s undocumented population now includes 75,000 fewer Mexicans, more people are coming from countries like El Salvador, Honduras and India. “The entire undocumented population living in Texas, including Mexico and every other country, actually increased by 95,000,” said Center for Migration Studies researcher Bob Warren. The report also showed that nationwide 62% of undocumented immigrants came to the U.S. by overstaying...

    GUATEMALA-MEXICO BORDER – Approximately 1,000 Central American migrants in the newest caravan have begun the process of crossing into Mexico from Guatemala, a Mexican immigration official stationed at the border between the two countries told Fox News on Thursday night. A new process instituted by Mexico means that migrants will have to wait five days for their paperwork to be processed before entering the country. The new system is meant to keep things orderly after the last caravan rushed the border … Julia Escalon, 43, of the Honduran city of San Pedro Sula, rested under the shade of a tree...

    Washington Times ^ | Jan 17, 2019 | By David Sherfinski and S.A. Miller
    Senate Democrats are refusing to embrace House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s rhetoric denouncing border walls as an “immorality,” but they are being careful to avoid undercutting her new role as the party’s leader in the shutdown standoff. Mrs. Pelosi has moved unsteadily since seizing the speaker’s gavel amid the partial government shutdown, including the “immorality” comment and her shifting explanations for why she told President Trump to postpone the State of the Union address. Still, she garners strong support from Democrats on both side of the Capitol for remaining steadfast in shutdown fight and refusing Mr. Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion...

    Border security is an issue where the Democratic Party is suffering from schizophrenia. They were for it before they were against it. Donald Trump winning the 2016 election caused that, despite some very prominent Democrats, like Barack Obama, supporting border barriers in times past. Now, the war cry is that “a wall is an immorality.” That is coming from Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Walls are immoral. So, what about illegal aliens who murdered American citizens? Apparently, that’s not a concern; dreams of amnesty and expanded Democratic voter rolls have clouded the liberal mind. Pelosi: ‘A wall is an immoralityYet, House Majority...
  • Man Who Says He Was Abducted By Aliens Breaks 45-Year Silence (Pascagoula)

    A Mississippi man in declining health is telling a story he’s kept secret from his own family for 45 years: he claims he was abducted by aliens. Calvin Parker says he and his buddy Charles Hickson were fishing in 1973 on the banks of the Pascagoula River, just north of where Ingalls Shipyard now sits, when a “real bright beam appeared all over us and it kind of blinded me for a second and when I got my vision back, I seen three bulky looking creatures coming toward us.” Parker said the creatures were “probably 4, 4 1/2, 5 foot...

    House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., acknowledged Wednesday on Fox News' "Special Report with Bret Baier" that border walls "obviously" work in some areas, and he rejected suggestions that barriers should be removed where they already exist. The No. 2 House Democrat additionally asserted that the question of whether to fund President Trump's proposed border wall -- a dispute at the center of the unprecedented partial federal government shutdown -- is "not an issue of morality." Hoyer's comments were seemingly at odds with the positions of other House Democrats, who have argued that border walls like the one Trump is...

    Court documents obtained by FOX 5 paint a horrifying picture in which a 14-year-old girl who worked at Lilly’s restaurant in Wheaton was forced by the gang to help sell drugs and serve alcohol to customers. When the teen told the gang she wanted to quit her job, authorities said the MS-13 members took her to a house on Valley View Avenue in Kensington and beat her with a baseball bat. An affidavit filed in the case quotes a source who said they saw the girl after she was beaten and she had discolored arms and legs. According to the...

    SAN SALVADOR/TEGUCIGALPA - At least 150 Salvadoran migrants departed in a group for the United States on Wednesday, the latest in a string of such ‘caravans’ that U.S. President Donald Trump has used to build his case for a wall along the U.S.-Mexican border. The group, organized through social media, is following in the wake of a larger caravan that departed from Honduras this week. On Wednesday morning, between 900 and 1,000 Hondurans gathered at the country’s border with Guatemala, waiting to cross en-route to the United States, local police chief Jorge Rodriguez told Reuters. Several hundred Honduran migrants already...

    What if I told you that I could virtually eliminate gridlock in this region? That I could lower housing prices, especially for the poor and working class? And that I could raise wages, especially for the poor and working class? What if I told you I could do all of that, and it wouldn’t cost one penny in tax dollars? If you would just have the wisdom to put me in charge, I could do all of that. What is this magic formula, you might ask? I’m willing to say things that people aren’t willing to say in this politically...

    Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro on Sunday said he would prefer to track illegal immigrants using ankle monitors rather than detaining them. The former Obama administration housing chief and former mayor of San Antonio made the comments while discussing how he would deal with the increase in migrant families crossing the southern border illegally, should he win his party's nomination for president in 2020. Castro on Saturday officially launched a 2020 White House bid. "What I believe we could do and what the Obama administration did do, I believe, toward the end of its tenure, was to look at things...

    The optics for the latest caravan don't get much worse than this: Honduran border police arrested a 26-year-old fugitive they said was leading it and hauled him off to prison to serve the 15-year prison term that came of his 2015 conviction.  Caravan leader Juan Carlos Molina's crime? Raping a younger-than-12-year-old, his own little cousin, sneaking into her home as she awaited her mother's return from a late-working job with the door to her home ajar to let her back in, according to the Honduras's Diario La Tribuna. If she had to leave the door open, it's quite likely it's because she had to go to sleep,...
  • A Mexican border snapshot from someone who knows: Here's what things really look like.

    American Thinker ^ | 01/16/2019 | Gary Schiff
    Here is a U.S.-Mexican border snapshot. The Coronado National Forest, in New Mexico and Arizona, shares a 53-mile border with Mexico. In 2010, the average number of illegals crossing through that 53-mile stretch were 35,000 per year, of which Customs and Border Protection (CBP) estimated catching about half. There was no effective barrier. Most of those they would catch would be ten miles north of the border on or near Interstate 10, which effectively created a 500-square-mile-plus no man's land of public space, unsafe for entry by the general public. The ranchers who had private land within the area had...
