    Democrats just can’t help themselves. They were winning the battle over family separations at the southern border. Americans of all political persuasions were horrified by the images of children in cages separated from their parents. Despite President Trump’s efforts to blame Democrats for the catastrophe, polls showed that a plurality of Americans placed the blame squarely on the president’s shoulders. Evangelical Christian leaders — who stood with Trump through Stormy Daniels and the “Access Hollywood” tape — began to publicly criticize the family separations. The Rev. Franklin Graham called family separations “disgraceful,” and the Southern Baptist Convention passed a resolution...
  • Mexico — What Went Wrong? (LONG)

    Mexico gets a massive cash influx in remittances, American corporations get cheap labor, Democrats get voters . . . Mexico in just a few days could elect one of its more anti-American figures in recent memory, Andrés Manuel López Obrador. Obrador has often advanced the idea that a strangely aggrieved Mexico has the right to monitor the status of its citizens living illegally in the United States. Lately, he trumped that notion of entitlement by assuring fellow Mexicans that they have a “human right” to enter the United States as they please. For Obrador, this is an innate privilege that...

    Police were heard declaring an unlawful assembly after a line of demonstrators, among them several clergy members, was seen linking arms across Spring Street outside the U.S. Attorney's Office building, blocking the road to traffic as they chanted "Kids belong at home, not in cages." Many of the protestors wore children’s onesies pinned to their chests to represent the immigrant youth separated from their parents by the Trump administration. Some also wore blue arm bands, indicating they intended to be taken into custody for their actions. So far, 25 people have been arrested for failure to disperse, said Los Angeles...

    SAN ANTONIO — One of the undocumented immigrants who died in a stifling tractor-trailer here this weekend was a 19-year-old who lived in the United States and graduated from high school in Northern Virginia before apparently being deported to his native Guatemala, according to interviews with government officials and postings on social media. Frank G. Fuentes was one of at least three Guatemalan nationals on a truck packed with undocumented immigrants and driven by James Matthew Bradley Jr., said Cristy Andrino, the consul of Guatemala in McAllen, Tex. Fuentes previously had lived in Virginia, Andrino said. The Guatemalan government said...
  • Jorge Ramos Says The ‘Trump Effect’ Is Scaring Away Illegal Aliens

    Univision anchor Jorge Ramos believes he has found the explanation for the recent drop in illegal border crossings reported by immigration officials: fear or what he calls the “Trump effect.” In an interview with Anderson Cooper on CNN Thursday night, Ramos laid out his theory in detail. “Jorge, the massive drop in border apprehensions last month, the customs border protections says 40 percent, it’s down 40 percent, people trying to cross illegally. What do you make of that?” Cooper asked. “Is it possible that the tough talk on illegal immigration by Trump is working, that he deserves credit for that...

    Yes I want to use the U.S. judicial system—the immigration courts in particular-- to jam, to backlog it so perhaps President Trump will change his mind and stop this ridiculous policy-- this unpleasant and hostile policy-- of deporting people..”  (Jorge Castañeda to Tucker Carlson, Fox News, 2/14/17.)   The “ridiculous policy”consists of President Trump’s executive orders to deport lawbreaking foreigners, mostly Mexicans.   In other words, this “unpleasant and hostile policy” consists of Presidential candidate Trump’s fulfillment of his campaign pledges and of President Trump’s fulfillment of his pledge with his hand on the Bible on Jan. 20th—to uphold the U.S. Constitution....

    Editor's Note By Mark Potok Three Washington, D.C.-based immigration-restriction organizations stand at the nexus of the American nativist movement: the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), and NumbersUSA. Although on the surface they appear quite different--the first, the country's best-known anti-immigrant lobbying group; the second, an "independent" think tank; and the third, a powerful grassroots organizer--they are fruits of the same poisonous tree. FAIR, CIS and NumbersUSA are all part of a network of restrictionist organizations conceived and created by John Tanton, the "puppeteer" of the nativist movement and a man with deep racist...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Sexual servitude is a new crime recently added to the books in Nashville. And for the first time in Metro two men now face those charges. Police said Jesus Miguel Garcia and Arturo Garnica Perez held a woman against her will for years and forced her into prostitution. She told police they threatened to hurt her family if she didn't do what they wanted. She also claimed they tortured her with ice picks. "There are those who say prostitution is a victimless crime. This certainly shows that it is not," said Metro police spokesman Don Aaron. The...

    Here is what the open-borders culture of entitlement has wrought: After expressing remorse to a jury that later spared his life, a Mexican citizen who hired hit men to kill two local men did an about face during last week’s sentencing hearing by professing his innocence and railing against the American criminal justice system.In May, a Multnomah County jury found Joel Sanchez-Jacobo, 31, guilty of two counts of aggravated murder and one count of murder for soliciting two murders in 2006.But on Friday, July 18, when he appeared before Judge Michael J.

    Supporters of the anti-illegal immigration measure adopted in Prince William County last week have argued that its most important purpose is to send a powerful signal to the county's mostly Latino illegal immigrants that they are no longer welcome. It appears the message has already been received: Terrified that new policies will lead to mass deportations, illegal immigrants and the many legal immigrant relatives and friends who live with them have been moving out of Prince William ever since July, when county supervisors first approved the plan's outline.
