    The population of illegal migrants is roughly 22 million, or twice the establishment estimate of 11 million, say three professors from Yale University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The shocking estimate will force establishment politicians and pro-migration advocates to recalculate the estimated impact of the huge illegal population on wages and salaries, on crime rates, welfare consumption, rental and real-estate prices, productivity rates, and the distribution of job-creating investment funds to coastal vs. heartland states. The higher illegal population estimate helps explain why Americans’ wages and salaries have risen so little amid apparently record-low unemployment rates, and it also...

    An unhinged woman went on a stabbing spree inside an illegal Queens daycare early Friday, slashing four newborns — including one as young as 3 days old — and two adults before slitting her own wrist, police and sources said. The bloodbath unfolded just before 4 a.m. at a multi-family home on 161st Street near 45th Avenue in Flushing, where the daycare was being operated under the name Mei Xin Care Inc., cops said. The woman — identified by law enforcement sources as Yu Fen Wang, 52 — used a knife to stab the babies, as well as a man...

    HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) - A New Haven woman was arrested Monday for allegedly assaulting a Hamden deli owner over the amount of meat in her sandwich. Police say that at around 3 p.m., officers responded to the Krauszer's Food Store at 36 Fairview Avenue on the report of an assault. An investigation revealed that 32-year-old Regina Solomon was upset at the price of a sandwich so she went behind the deli counter and began yelling at the clerk about the amount of meat in the sandwich. Solomon and another man, who has not been identified, then tried to leave the...

  • Is there a Kavanaugh doppleganger?

    The Oregonian ^ | September 19, 2018 | Kathleen Parker, The Washington Post
    In one of Brett Kavanaugh's responses to allegations that he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl when he was in high school, a charge he has denied "categorically and unequivocally," he suggested that, perhaps, this was a case of mistaken identity. Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a member of the Judiciary Committee reiterated this notion, saying that perhaps the accuser was "mixed up." And, on Tuesday, The Wall Street Journal's editorial board also floated the possibility of mistaken identity. As crazy as that sounds, it wouldn't be unheard of. And, given the high regard in which Kavanaugh has been held throughout his...

    CHICAGO — A California man has been charged with shooting a Cicero police officer in a wild shootout near I-55 on Thursday. Daniel Mageo, 27, was denied bail Saturday during a bond hearing at the Leighton Criminal Court Building, 2650 S. California Ave. Mageo was previously convicted of human trafficking and had outstanding warrants for a parole violation and a sex offense. "He is the poster child for no bail and that’s exactly what he’s going to get," Cook County Judge John Fitzgerald Lyke Jr., said. "No bail." Cicero police Officer Luis Duarte, 32, was shot three times Thursday on...

    It sounds like the opening for another stoner movie, maybe “Harold and Kumar Go to Heaven.” Giant bundles of marijuana, apparently containing individually wrapped five-kilo bricks, have been washing up on the shores of Florida since the approach of Hurricane Florence last week, possibly from a boat that was either capsized by the storm or an airplane drop that went awry.

    The U.S. population is around 328 million. It’s estimated that about 11 million — or one in 30 — are illegal immigrants. Yet criminal aliens account for more than one in five federal prison inmates. Even assuming a pretty radical margin of error for the sake of argument, that would still mean illegal immigrants are drastically over-represented among the criminal population. 91 percent of federal criminal aliens were citizens of Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Colombia or Guatemala. There were more than 730,000 criminal aliens in U.S. or state prisons and local jails during the period measured. They accounted...

    Police say a career criminal ripped off a downtown Seattle Target store three times in four days, even after being arrested and released for his crimes. Surveillance video from August allegedly shows 41-year-old Jason Lewis confronting sales workers on the electronics floor of the department store. At one point, he head bumps an employee. The terrorized employees left him alone after that. Lewis then destroyed display cases and grabbed as many electronics as he could over 15 minutes. “He then begins to push over and drags store displays and he uses one as a weapon, swinging it like a sled...

    Lebanese authorities have arrested a Palestinian man working for the UN Relief and Works Agency for allegedly trying to smuggle medicine destined for Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, Palestinian officials said Saturday. Hani Khalil, a chief auditor at UNRWA’s Lebanon office, was arrested along with his driver by police at the Lebanese-Syrian border three days ago while attempting to smuggle medicine to Syria, officials at the Ain al-Hilweh refugee camp said. The Palestinian officials said the medicine, whose quantity and value were not known, was confiscated by Lebanese customs officers at the border. UNRWA chief Peter Hansen, who has been informed...

    A Pennsylvania man hunted by federal authorities for allegedly threatening to “put a bullet…in the head of President Donald J. Trump” is suspected to be on the run in Ohio on Monday after authorities there found an abandoned truck he's believed to have stolen. Police investigating a crash late Sunday afternoon near Mansfield determined the truck on the side of Interstate-71 was the same one alleged to have been swiped by Shawn Christy from a construction company in Luzerne County, Pa., about 380 miles east, Fox 56 reported. The 27-year-old from McAdoo has been on the radar of U.S. Marshals,...

    A start-up uses visual tracking and behavioral data to operate a new San Francisco market, which lets shoppers walk out unimpeded. And sometimes mischarged. One recent afternoon, the city’s newest grocery market was trying to figure out whether I would buy, steal or leave behind a bag of white Cheddar popcorn — and so was I. On its side: 27 cameras along the ceiling and a wealth of behavioral data. On my side: crippling indecision. Last week, San Francisco got its first completely automated cashierless store, Standard Market. Shoppers who have downloaded the store’s app can go into the 1,900-square-foot...

    ---(snip)-- Lombardo maintains that “well over” 40 percent of suspects or victims in local violent crimes are Californians with ties to that state’s law enforcement and its prison system. Some of them have been identified gang members. The nexus might be because past legislation depopulated some California prisons, eased parole conditions and lowered the amount of time served for non-violent offenders jailed for parole violations. Could it also be that criminals think the valley is a good place to commit crimes and easily flee back home?

    BALDWIN, N.Y. — A woman has been taken into custody after police say she fabricated a story about a Trump-related hate crime on New York's Long Island. On Friday, Adwoa Lewis, 19, gave detectives a written statement stating she was driving home on Sept. 2 when four teenagers confronted her, police said. Lewis alleged the teens yelled “Trump 2016!” and said she didn’t belong here. She further claimed she parked her car in front of her house, and when she woke up, she found a slashed tire and a note on her car that stated, “Go home,” according to police....

    Yesterday I wrote a piece that’s gone viral — an extended denunciation of a terrible police shooting in Texas. A white officer went to black man’s apartment, apparently thinking it was her own. When she saw the man in the darkness, she claimed she thought he was a burglar. She shot him and killed him. It’s a horrifying story, and it’s not the only terrible police shooting to shock the American conscience. Whenever I write about police shootings, I get a similar critique. New readers will Google me and find that I’ve been strongly critical of Black Lives Matter. Yet...

She is very playful and I am afraid she will contract more diseases, ”Ms Mmochi said, noting that patients with different diseases are forced to share beds at the patient detention centre. “Sharing of bed is not good for those whose wounds have not healed.
