    Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva, the mother of Boston bombing suspects Dzhokar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, suggested Friday that the FBI had been surveilling her older son for several years prior to Monday's attack.

The Homeland Security Department said last month, when The Associated Press first disclosed the delayed arrest of Luis Abrahan Sanchez Zavaleta, that AP's report was "categorically false."

    A federal judge temporarily blocked enforcement of Alabama's new law cracking down on illegal immigration, ruling Monday that she needed more time to decide whether the law opposed by the Obama administration, church leaders and immigrant-rights groups is constitutional. The brief order by U.S. District Judge Sharon L. Blackburn means the law won't take effect as scheduled on Thursday. The ruling was cheered by opponents who have compared the law to old Jim Crow-era statutes against racial integration. But Blackburn didn't address whether the law is constitutional, and she could still let all or parts of the law take effect...

    Victor Nunez is an illegal alien from Mexico. Two years after arriving in the United States, he was convicted of petty theft for shoplifting. Then, he was convicted of a much more serious crime: He exposed himself in public. But even that wasn’t enough to have him removed from the country.   After a decade of his illegal presence, the Department of Homeland Security finally brought immigration charges to remove him from the United States. Crimes of “moral turpitude,” like exposing your genitals to children, are supposed to result in certain deportation.     The Immigration Judge denied his application, and the Board of...

    CINCINNATI -- A U.S. senator and congressman from Ohio have helped gain some time for an 18-year-old Guatemalan facing deportation to the homeland he left at age 3. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that federal immigration officials confirmed last night that they will hold off for now on the deportation of Bernard Pastor. Sen. Sherrod Brown and Rep. Steve Driehaus -- both Democrats -- are appealing to federal authorities on Pastor's behalf. Pastor was arrested last week when he was unable to produce a driver's license after a minor accident. Authorities then concluded he was in this country illegally. His supporters...

    Senate Republicans and their conservative allies are sharpening their attacks on the proposed DREAM Act that would provide a path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants, declaring it would give “amnesty” to millions — some of them criminals. The legislation, which would apply to undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, has been overshadowed by other big-ticket items on the lame-duck congressional calendar. But Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are now pushing for votes on it this year. Already, GOP staffers have begun circulating to senators and conservative groups a white paper...

    Two illegal immigrants charged with murder in roulette shooting A group of men were drinking and playing Russian roulette at a party in Delaware last weekend. As if out of a scene from The Deer Hunter, when one of the men refused his turn, another took the gun, pointed it at the man’s head and pulled the trigger. A bullet was in the chamber for that round of the "game." The man was shot dead. Wilmington police say two illegal immigrants have been charged with murder in the shooting death of Juan Tomas Chaves Robles, 30, of Mexico, during that...
  • Obama's Illegal Alien Aunt Sucking Taxpayers Dry

    Zeituni Onyango's arrogance and contempt for America is breathtaking. She came illegally, lived in public housing for years, collected welfare, even got $51k in disability. And still she is angry at America. This case is beyond depressing. And it underlines what many eople see today: that in the old days, immigrants came to America to lend a hand to our growing nation. But far too many today merely come for a handout. And their arrogance and sense of entitlement is a symptom of the broken borders and lawlessness we have permitted, which lets anybody in, asks nothing of them, and...

    Community activist Quanell X and relatives of a teen gunned down Saturday railed against America's immigration policy this morning after learning one of the suspected gunmen was in the country illegally. "I believe it is time that the immigration policy in this country has more teeth," Quanell X said before the scheduled arraignments of Melvin Alvarado, 22, and Jonathan Lopez-Torres, 18. Immigration officials have said Alvarado was deported in April 2008 and again in May 2009.
