    While trying to work on initiatives to help stop the flow of illegal immigrants and drugs flooding our border with Mexico, Arpaio said, "I'll tell you whats sad, all the top law enforcement officials told me don't go into Mexico." "Isn't that sad law enforcement is afraid to cross that border and go inside Mexico. I just cant believe it," he added. "I did talk to four federal officers, I had to stick my arm through the fence to shake their hands."

    Our very own liberal leviathan, the bloated, blind and wheezing U.S. Government, is preparing 34 million blank Green Cards and Work Visas in anticipation of Obama’s unilateral and unconstitutional plan to grant executive amnesty. Although this comes as no surprise, the fact our fearless leader is waiting until after the election speaks volumes about his politics and duplicitous nature. The disturbing realization the President of the United States is consciously allowing millions of Illegal immigrants, those who have little or no allegiance for this country’s heritage, to greatly influence our nation’s policies and potential survival is criminal and treasonous to...

    Graciela Iniguez guesses she has spent $12,000 on traffic tickets and vehicle impound fees since she started driving 20 years ago. As an undocumented immigrant from Jalisco, Mexico, Iniguez drives without a license. But that's soon to change. Starting Jan. 1, California residents who can't prove they are in United States legally will be allowed to obtain driver's licenses under Assembly Bill 60, which Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law last year. "This law is going to benefit us so much," she said. "Thank God, now we won't have to be afraid to drive." "Unfortunately, it's not a privilege to...

    Seated at the defense table in U.S. Immigration Court in Philadelphia, the 10-year-old looked down at his feet, which barely reached the floor. Coal-eyed, he resembled a Latino Dennis the Menace, with a "fauxhawk" instead of a cowlick and clad in a shirt that read: Last name: Maker. First name: Trouble. Having entered the U.S. illegally eight months ago, the boy, Carlos, was arrested on the Texas border, given a notice to appear in court to face deportation. In a daylong court session this month, Judge Steven Morley, presiding at the federal building at Ninth and Market Streets, heard Carlos'...

    Exclusive: Obama Administration Quietly Prepares 'Surge' Of Millions Of New Immigrant IDs Despite no official action from the president ahead of the election, the Obama administration has quietly begun preparing to issue millions of work authorization permits, suggesting the implementation of a large-scale executive amnesty may have already begun. Unnoticed until now, a draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of 9 million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.” The request for proposals says the...

    Responding to complaints from dozens of Hispanic children who said they had been barred from public school classes on Long Island, the state on Friday issued new legal guidance regarding enrollment procedures, exhorting school districts to comply with federal law by allowing undocumented immigrant children to begin classes. The students, many of whom are newly arrived immigrants, say they successfully enrolled in the summer or early fall, but were warned by Hempstead administrators that there was not enough space or teachers to accommodate them. Diana Hernandez, 16, who came to Hempstead from Honduras in July, said in an interview on...

    Our current government has shown that they cannot be trusted with the most basic elements of handling the Ebola situation. Every assurance they’ve uttered has been proven bogus, and every protocol they purport has failed. Roughly 150 air travelers per day, originating from Ebola hell-holes of West Africa, arrive here in the U.S. on board commercial flights. The flights do not come directly from West African countries, but from places where flights from those countries connect. Even after the still-unfolding Ebola disaster in Dallas, we are told by our government that it’s safe and sufficient to rely on “self-reporting” by...

Federal immigration authorities reported 61 releases and no deportations last week at the Artesia Family Residential Center in southeastern New Mexico, Artesia Mayor Phillip Burch said. The numbers show a dramatic change from the center's first two weeks, when 135 people were deported and 12 were released, according to figures provided to Burch by ICE officials.

When asked what earned him his admission, he hesitated, not wanting to boast.

    Thousands of undocumented immigrants arrested in the city each year would no longer be turned over the feds under a law proposed Thursday by City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito. The bill would shield all immigrants who are picked up on low-level charges and are being sought by immigration authorities because they are in the U.S. illegally. That represents a major change from current policy, which is to honor most detention requests by the feds. In such cases, agents take the detainees into custody for possible deportation. Mark-Viverito’s proposal also calls for closing the office used by U.S. Immigration and Customs...

The CDC will decide whether it is necessary to move the patient to another facility. This is the first-ever case of this strain of Ebola confirmed in the United States. Officials would not confirm or deny if he was a U.S. citizen, only saying he was "visiting family in the U.S."

    2014 Democrat candidates are facing a daunting challenge--- the White House’s handling of the border crisis has endangered Democrats. Disgruntled Dummycrats themselves are backing off reform---reaffirming America's view that reform was a crack-brained idea to begin with. POLITICO.COM REPORTS--as midterms loom three "reform-minded" groups launched by business titans are all but silent on the campaign trail. No ads on immigration reform are airing. Even more illustrative of reform's toxicity---Senate Republican candidates in battleground states are launching attack ads against Democrats accusing them of supporting “amnesty,” leaving pro-immigration reform candidates even more vulnerable and immigration reform even less likely to happen....

    Judge Jeanine Pirro called the Islamic extremist group ISIS America’s “single biggest threat in her 200-year history" claiming that the threat was even bigger than those America faced during World War I, World War II, and September 11th. She predicted that ISIS will come to America, “if not already on American soil.” Snip "If our government were listening, our borders would be closed. If our government were listening, we’d be bombing ISIS nonstop. And if they were listening, our president would be following the advice of the military experts united on the issue of boots on the ground. But instead,...

    The Texas border situation is extremely bad from a first-hand report from an individual assigned to that region. I do want to say that the national media is not coming even close to reporting the conflict between those with loyalties to the United States and those with loyalties to Mexico in that region. Local Hispanics are treating the individuals assigned by Perry to the area in an abusive manner. The individuals who have been assigned are being monitored by "scouts" with the cartels. This is the tip of the iceberg as to what is happening and the MSM is NOT...

The ICE official made the disclosure in a confidential meeting at its Washington headquarters with immigration advocates participating in a federal working group on detention and enforcement policies.

    Exposing a deep GOP rift on a rancorous immigration issue, Gov. Rick Perry and George P. Bush, the Republican candidate for land commissioner, this weekend defended providing in-state tuition for unauthorized immigrants. U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz said he opposes the measure on principle, and state Sen. Dan Patrick, the party’s nominee for lieutenant governor, has vowed to repeal it. In separate appearances at the Texas Tribune Festival at the University of Texas, Perry and Bush expressed views on in-state tuition that were in sync with state Sen. Wendy Davis’ pledge to veto “in a heartbeat” any repeal legislation that would...
