These new policies have opened the doors for roundups and detentions of illegal immigrants on a scaled that has not been seen in roughly 10 years.

    To build his highly touted deportation force, President Donald Trump is reviving a long-standing program that deputizes local officers to enforce federal immigration law. The program received scant attention during a week in which Trump announced plans to build a border wall, hire thousands more federal agents and impose restrictions on refugees from Middle Eastern countries. But the program could end up having a significant impact on immigration enforcement around the country, despite falling out of favor in recent years amid complaints that it promotes racial profiling.

The White House, though, has repeatedly ruled that out. Several Republican...

    In a purely practical way, the present deportation debate is simply the essence of demagoguery. In 2006, when I first began researching deportations, George W. Bush was president and quietly building a deportation machine in the Department of Homeland Security. Outside of small activist circles, few Americans knew that deportations had been rising since 1996 due to legislation signed by President Bill Clinton. Nor could anyone then have imagined that the next president would be a Democrat, the son of a Kenyan immigrant, and would make Bush look like a piker when it came to record-high deportations.

It is a proven fact that over 1.4 million non-citizens were allowed to vote in the 2008 elections.

    The full scale of Islamic State's influence can today be laid bare as it's revealed dozens of terror groups worldwide have pledged their allegiance to the barbaric extremists. From militia lurking in the jungles of the Philippines to sleeper cells training in the deserts of Libya, a vast array of groups are now claiming to be operating alongside the jihadis' notorious black and white banner. It is clear the groups have little in common except their desire to establish their own kingdoms governed by a traditional interpretation of Sharia law. But they are united by one other common principle -...

    The question that continues to nag at everyone in the immigration debate is what to do with the 11-12 million illegal aliens who are already in the country. (Some estimates run that number up to as many as 30 million.) Ted Cruz outlined his approach to this problem on Hugh Hewitt's radio program on Monday night. It essentially involves voluntary self-repatriation. Here's what Cruz said: "Once we secure the border, you stop filling the boat that's sinking, a number of people start to go home voluntarily every year to be with their families. That population will start shrinking. After that,...

    They connect via online services ‚ÄĒ especially Twitter ‚ÄĒ and in everyday life. Their ages range from 15 to 47, and their roles range from cheering attacks to plotting violence. And curbing their growth is a dynamic challenge without a simple solution: There are currently 900 active investigations into ISIS sympathizers in every American state. Those are some of the findings of a new study that glimpses life "inside the bubble of American ISIS sympathizers, a diverse and diffuse scene that the FBI estimates include hundreds, if not thousands, of individuals." Titled "ISIS in America: From Retweets to Raqqa," the...

    The best part is when she asks the obvious follow-up -- is a path to legalization "amnesty"? -- and he won't even make eye contact. There's a spectrum of answers to this question on the right, of course: 1. Amnesty is citizenship without preconditions. That's the strictest definition, and naturally the one preferred by Beltway Republicans like Marco Rubio in his Gang of Eight days. (Marco Rubio circa 2010 had a different view.) As long as you're forcing illegals to jump through some sort of hoop, be it learning English, paying back taxes, going to the back of the line,...
  • Americans agree with Trump: The illegal immigrants must go

    Most Americans agree with Donald Trump -- the illegal aliens have to go. Head 'em up, move 'em out. A new Fox News poll shows 52 percent of the nation favors deporting the millions of illegals back to their home countries. Republicans and Democrats support Mr. Trump’s plan. But the numbers among Republicans are astronomical. Seventy percent agree with Mr. Trump -- a super-majority. So why does the Republican establishment continue to support pro-amnesty candidates? Jeb Bush accused Mr. Trump of preying on people's deep-seated fears. “This whole idea of preying on people’s deep-seated fears of what the future looks...

    According to a new Ipsos-MORI poll, 48% of Americans -and 44% Britons- now favor halting all immigration into their besieged countries... stopping not just Muslims, but everybody. These numbers represent about a five-point jump... Other fun facts: 95% of people in the UK -and 91% of Americans- expect there to be a major terrorist strike on their respective homeland over the coming 12 months... that's a pretty dark outlook to have to get up and face everyday, and over time it's bound to take a toll on you. Hillary and Obama sure are fond of telling us how 'un-American'...
