    Documents are surfacing which prove President Obama and his administration planned the horrific alien invasion by children of America’s Southern Border. With it, the Regime hopes to collapse our constitutional republic and turn the United States into a communist nation! “Back in January, the Federal Government put an ad on their BizOpps website Seeking Escort Services for Unaccompanied Alien Children.” (1) Obama’s new “Office of Refugee Resettlement” hopes to inundate the U.S. with children representing the following seven categories: Refugees, Asylees, Cuban-Haitian entrants, Ameri-Asians, Victims of Human Trafficking, Unaccompanied Alien Children, and Survivors of Torture. These are broad categories open...

    The soon-to-be Chinese father was getting ready to go to America. His wife, due to give birth to their son any day, was already there. Like any expectant parents, the Shanghai couple agonized over how best to prepare for the arrival — and upbringing — of their firstborn child. American citizenship, they decided, was one of the finest gifts they could bestow. At least 10,000 such Chinese babies were born in America last year. Naturally, a thriving business catering to these tiny foreign passport holders has developed. The Jia Mei Canadian and American Baby Counseling Services Center, with offices across...

    Heavily pregnant woman ended up giving birth before she could be taken to hospital SNIP A 27-year-old woman went into labor Wednesday while trying to enter the country through the Port of Lakeville in Arizona. Federal authorities at the southern Arizona crossing ended up having to help deliver the baby. A short time later, she successfully gave birth to a healthy baby boy. The boy will be a United States citizen since he was born on American soil. An ambulance was notified, but the Tohono O'odham tribal member went into labor and required the assistance of U.S. Customs and Border...

    A chilling video of Maryland police silencing an innocent student who was recording the arrests of two other people has civil libertarians outraged. The arrests were made at night on the streets of Towson, Maryland. A University of Maryland-Baltimore County student who witnessed the arrests decided to record them using his cell phone. The student, 21-year-old Sergio Gutierrez, was soon approached by officers who objected — wrongly — to his actions. Gutierrez repeatedly told the officers that he knew he had the right to film them, but the cops were prepared to use any excuse to shut him down. First...

    by Brian Hayes | Top Right News If Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto's wife gave birth in a Washington, D.C. hospital, no one would ever argue that the child was an American citizen. Similarly, it is ludicrous to state that a Mexican citizen, such as the woman in the story below, who illegally swims across the Rio Grande in labor and gives birth in a Texas hospital, has sired an American citizen. But that's what we currently do, because of a shameful perversion of the 14th Amendment. WATCH:

After Lima shared her story and asked the Speaker to commit to immigration reform, Boehner told her, “I’m trying to find a way to get this thing done. It’s, as you know, not easy. It’s...

    A Republican-led push to legalize young unauthorized immigrants has been met with stony resistance from groups representing the very "Dreamers" such a bill would help. Immigrant advocacy groups say the proposed "Kids Act" is a way to avoid a comprehensive overhaul of the nation's immigration laws, which would provide a pathway to citizenship to a much larger number of immigrants. The Kids Act, like earlier "Dream Act" proposals, would legalize young people who were brought to the country by their parents and meet certain requirements. "We will not stand for anything that separates our families," said Greisa Martinez, an organizer...

    Chinese parents who once struggled for US citizenship may face insidious problems with bringing up their foreign born children. ...In recent years, the US has relaxed its tourist visa policies, which provides another convenience for Chinese parents to travel to America and give birth in the US. Giving birth in the US seems relatively easier than raising children in China. However, the difficult part starts later because parents of foreign born babies must pay soaring tuition costs if they have to go to school in China.

    WASHINGTON: For the first time, America's racial and ethnic minorities make up about half of the under-5 age group, the US government said on Thursday. It's a historic shift that shows how young people are at the forefront of sweeping changes by race and class. The new census estimates, a snapshot of the US population as of July 2012, come a year after the Census Bureau reported that whites had fallen to a minority among babies. Fueled by immigration and high rates of birth, particularly among Hispanics, racial and ethnic minorities are now growing more rapidly in numbers than whites....

Despite assurances, the border is not secured before almost everyone in the country illegally is given amnesty. The bill guarantees there will be a rush across the border to take advantage of massive amnesty." Rep. Smith says the Senate immigration bill shreds current immigration laws: "And the Senate proposal offers amnesty to far more illegal immigrants than we thought. In...

    LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles County is planning a crackdown on makeshift maternity wards where mothers from other countries stay while giving birth so their children will be U.S. citizens. The county has received 60 complaints about such facilities in the past month, according to a report by the Planning Department submitted to the Board of Supervisors, the Los Angeles Times reported. That compared with just 15 complaints in the previous five years. The surge might be due to publicity over the closure of a house in Chino Hills that authorities contended had been used to house as many as...

A website shows the hilltop mansion, along with other houses, targeting pregnant women in China. It spells out the benefits of having a child born in the United States and what the government will provide. “We’re hoping that we’ll send the message loud and clear that they cannot conduct this type of business in Chino Hills,” neighborhood advocate Rossana Mitchell said. Chinese women reportedly obtain tourist visas and pay up to $15,000 to stay in...

    In its quest to implement stealth amnesty, the Obama Administration is working behind the scenes to halt the deportation of certain illegal immigrants by granting them “unlawful presence waivers.” The new measure would apply to illegal aliens who are relatives of American citizens. Here is how it would work, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announcement posted in today’s Federal Register, the daily journal of the U.S. government; the agency will grant “unlawful presence waivers” to illegal aliens who can prove they have a relative that’s a U.S. citizen. Currently such aliens must return to their native...

    A 35-year-old south Charlotte man has been charged with statutory rape after a 14-year-old girl gave birth to his child this weekend, according to police. Jail officials say Juan Martinez Hernandez, who is believed to be in the country illegally, has run afoul of police and immigration agents before, following a 2010 drunken driving arrest. It’s unclear what became of Hernandez between his release to immigration agents in 2010 and the rape charges on Sunday. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials couldn’t be reached for comment Monday. On Sunday, the 14-year-old gave birth to a baby in the bathroom of an...

    Arizona took a public-relations punch to the gut after passing the nation's toughest anti-illegal-immigration law earlier this year, but anyone who thinks (or hopes) the state Legislature will lower its profile on the border-security issue in 2011 likely will be disappointed.The state is positioned like never before to expand its efforts to combat illegal immigration. The November election saw Republican Jan Brewer elected to a second term as governor, largely on the strength of her decision to sign the headline-making law, while the Republican Party added to its already sizable majorities in the state House and Senate.Most significantly of...

    ...the debate could resonate in Texas, where not only 1.5 million illegal immigrants are estimated to reside but at least 60,000 babies are added to their households annually. Parkland Memorial Hospital delivers more of those babies than any other hospital in the state. Last year at Parkland, 11,071 babies were born to women who were noncitizens, about 74 percent of total deliveries. Most of these women are believed to be in the country illegally. "If both parents are here illegally, should there be a reward for their illegal behavior?" Kyl said recently on a Sunday morning talk show. Changing the...

    WASHINGTON – As one of its first acts, the new Congress will consider denying citizenship to the children of illegal immigrants who are born in the United States. Those children, who are now automatically granted citizenship at birth, will be one of the first targets of the Republican-led House when it convenes in January. GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa, the incoming chairman of the subcommittee that oversees immigration, is expected to push a bill that would deny "birthright citizenship" to such children. The measure, assailed by critics as unconstitutional, is an indication of how the new majority intends to...

    CIUDAD JUAREZ, Mexico -- Four U.S. citizens were shot to death in separate attacks in the border city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexican authorities said Monday. Chihuahua state prosecutors' spokesman Arturo Sandoval said Edgar Lopez, 35, of El Paso, Texas, was killed Sunday along with two Mexican men when gunmen opened fire on a group standing outside a house. On Saturday, a 26-year-old U.S. woman and an American boy were slain shortly after crossing an international bridge from El Paso. Giovanna Herrera and Luis Araiza, 15, were shot to death along with a Mexican man traveling with them just after 11...

    Illegal Immigration: Lawmakers in 14 states are joining to restore the intended meaning of the 14th Amendment: that being a U.S. citizen requires more than just your mother sneaking past the Border Patrol. The architect of Arizona's immigration law, SB2070, announced Tuesday a new crusade to correct what he perceives as an unfortunate misinterpretation of the 14th Amendment that allows children of illegal immigrant parents to be considered U.S. citizens if they're born on U.S. soil. "This is a battle of epic proportions," Mesa Republican state Sen. Russell Pearce said. "We've allowed the hijacking of the 14th Amendment." He says...

    Lawmakers in at least 14 states are collaborating on proposed legislation to deny U.S. citizenship to children of illegal immigrants, according to lawmakers, including the sponsor of Arizona's 2010 law targeting illegal immigration. "We're taking a leadership role on things that need to be fixed in America. We can't get Congress to do it," Republican state Sen. Russell Pearce, of Mesa, said Tuesday. "It's a national work group so that we have model legislation that we know will be successful, that meets the constitutional criteria." The efforts by the state legislators come amid calls to change the U.S. Constitution's 14th...

    He was told there was a party at a brick house on Osborne Place, a quiet block set on a steep hill in the Bronx. He showed up last Sunday night as instructed, with plenty of cans of malt liquor. What he walked into was not a party at all, but a night of torture — he was sodomized, burned and whipped. All punishment, the police said Friday, for being gay. There were nine attackers, ranging from 16 to 23 years old and calling themselves the Latin King Goonies, the police said. Before setting upon their 30-year-old victim, they had...

    Maria 'Chata' Leon, mother of 13 kids, ruled over a criminal empire with connections to a human smuggling ring...Leon, the then-44-year-old mother of 13 children, and the much-feared head of a drug-dealing dynasty, was stuck in the border town of Mexicali. It was one of her children, Danny "Clever" Leon, who, wielding an AK-47, had died in the 2008 shoot-out with police, and now she wanted to attend his funeral in the United States. Eventually, she would get her way right in front of LAPD gang officers. As politicians on all sides of the political spectrum argue about illegal immigration,...

    The explosion of an issue on the national scene often seems to come from nowhere. That is really a misconception; what more accurately defines the process is that the issue bubbles to the surface of our culture and finally reaches what is called a “tipping point.” The definition of “tipping point” is the moment at which an object is displaced from a state of stable equilibrium into a new and different state. That has now occurred with what has become known as “anchor babies,” and the problem lies with the misinformation that has been bantered about. The common argument against...

    Shortly after the terrible attacks on 9/11 Bin Laden released a video where he stated his ultimate goal is to bring down the United States of America. Now in the long-term aftermath of 9/11 we are witnessing challenges to our society that we would not be facing were it not for the ideological war declared against us. One of the more obvious affects is the depletion our national treasures by financing the massive military response to the attacks. However, as uncomfortable as this may be to all of us, the monetary challenges are minor in light of the real threats...

    There have been numerous debates about “birthright” citizenship in recent weeks. As the Heritage Foundation has pointed out, the claim that the 14th Amendment confers citizenship on the children of visitors or illegal aliens is mistaken. Neither the text nor the legislative history supports such an interpretation. Perspective is needed. How many other countries have birthright citizenship? How many such children are there in the United States, and how much is this costing us? The Center for Immigration Studies has just released a study by Jon Feere that gives some answers. The report didn’t get the attention it should have...
