    President Bush's son, Jeb, is looking for a maid who's a legal U.S. resident. A maid who had worked at Bush's Miami home for three years was deported back to her native Honduras last week. Bush was out jogging when immigration agents showed up so his wife, Columba, had to deal with them. "She indicated, `Yes, she works here,' brought the lady out, and the two agents showed her the deportation order,said Richard Smith, director of the INS's Miami office."

    As authorities investigate a deadly attack in Tennessee as a potential case of terrorism, which occurred on the heels of several attacks across the globe in recent weeks, President Barack Obama issued a statement Thursday wishing Muslims a happy Ramadan. The Muslim holy month ends Friday. [....] It's not clear what time Thursday the aforementioned White House statement was released, but Obama wished Muslims in the United States and across the world "joy" as Ramadan comes to a close.

    A coalition of Mexican mayors has asked the United States to stop deporting illegal immigrants who have been convicted of serious crimes in the U.S. to Mexican border cities, saying the deportations are contributing to Mexican border violence. The request was made at a recent San Diego conference in which the mayors of four Mexican border cities and one U.S. mayor, San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders, gathered to discuss cross-border issues. Ciudad Juarez Mayor Jose Reyes blamed U.S. deportation policy for contributing to his city's violence, saying that of the 80,000 people deported to Juarez in the past three years,...

I was thus willing to overlook the fact that he was...

    As governor of Florida, Jeb Bush used the Spanish word “presidente” instead of the English word – President – while communicating with one of his aides to describe Abe Lincoln, according to decade-old emails reported by the Washington Post. A day before South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley decided to remove the confederate flag from the state capitol grounds following the racially motivated shooting in a Charleston church, a Washington Post blog reported about how GOP presidential candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush handled the confederate flag debate while he was governor of the Sunshine state. In his report, the...

    Mexico now deports more Central American migrants than the United States, a dramatic shift since the U.S. asked Mexico for help a year ago with a spike in illegal migration, especially among unaccompanied minors. Between October and April, Mexico apprehended 92,889 Central Americans. In the same time period, the United States detained 70,226 “other than Mexican” migrants, the vast majority from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. That was a huge reversal from the same period a year earlier, when the wave of migrants and unaccompanied minors from Central America was building. From October 2013 to April 2014, the United States...

    University graduates routinely show great emotion (spontaneous and sometimes scripted) as they stand in front of crowds to mark momentous occasions. Onlookers clap and cheer, hoot and holler, and then wait to see what the next student (or student body) will do. But one UC San Diego student's Mexican flag-waving exuberance has sparked a conversation that's transcended her brief moment Sunday. Indira Esparza, a 22-year-old undocumented student who moved to the U.S. when she was 2, proudly unfurled the green, white and red flag of Mexico as she walked across the stage.

    Jeb Bush hasn't even officially launched his presidential campaign yet, and already there's a shakeup underway. In a surprise move, Bush has tapped veteran Republican strategist Danny Diaz to serve as his campaign manager, his political team announced on Monday. Diaz, 39, a longtime Republican operative known for his aggressive tactics and as a communications specialist, will move to Miami to take on a day-to-day managerial role after spending the last few months as a media consultant. The restructuring of Bush's staff was unexpected, given that Bush aides, donors and friends have said for months that David Kochel -- a...

    With the Senate tied in knots over a House-passed bill that would fund the Department of Homeland Security while simultaneously blocking President Obama’s executive actions on immigration, a nearly two-year-old video was released that shows leading GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush explicitly contradicting a key Republican position on providing illegal immigrants a path to citizenship. First reported by CNN, the video shows Bush at an appearance at an event sponsored by the Hispanic Leadership Network in April 2013. Bush was asked about his position on a Senate immigration reform bill and, specifically, on offering citizenship to people brought to the...

In this coastal hamlet made famous by George H.W. Bush and his cigarette boat, it is hard to escape the Bush family — but Jeb Bush is trying very hard to do so. After festivities this weekend to celebrate his mother’s 90th birthday, Bush will jet overseas for a foreign-policy tour and then launch his 2016 presidential campaign 1,500 miles to the south in Miami.

Jeb Bush came out in defense of the PATRIOT Act, currently under debate in Congress, according to Knox News: -snip- Bush also seemed to prod the GOP, if not conservatives, for presumably not being inclusive enough — saying the GOP can win only “if they reach out to everybody in our country, not just those that have already decided that they are conservatives and Republicans.”

Jeb Bush sent a letter to Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis advocating an immigration plan developed by the Council on Foreign Relations. That report included in its recommendations an earned pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. Bush was one of two co-chairs of the bipartisan task force. The letter, signed by Bush, identifies “a program of earned legalization that offers an opportunity for many illegal immigrants to earn the right to remain...

    On a December afternoon last year—weeks before President Obama would announce that he was normalizing relations with Cuba—a group of about 800 Cuban-Americans gathered in a gilded ballroom at the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables, Florida. It was the annual luncheon of the U.S.-Cuba Democracy PAC, a political action committee dedicated to rewarding politicians who take a hard line against communist Cuba and punishing those who do not. The event had no shortage of Cuban-American star power. Sen. Robert Menendez, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, spoke via video; so did soon-to-be-presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio. Two Cuban-American politicians...

The sticker is next to another for their son, George P. Bush, from his successful bid for Texas Land Commissioner last year.

    Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign has hired an illegal immigrant “Dreamer” to work on her 2016 bid, activists said Wednesday, in a move that sees the Democratic front-runner check off yet another wish-list item for Hispanic voters. Lorella Praeli is here under President Obama’s 2012 deportation amnesty for Dreamers, or young adult illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. As part of that amnesty, she has tentative legal status and a work permit, so it is legal to hire her — but she is still not in lawful presence. Immigrant-right advocates cheered the move as historic, though they...

Columba Bush was photographed Tuesday in Coral Gables, Florida getting into her green Mini Cooper with a clearly visible Spanish-language message on the back-end. 'Viva Jeb! Presidente 2016,' it read. It's the first outward sign that Bush's presidential announcement is a certainty, and could come soon. The sticker includes Jeb's first name in...

    Few political spouses in recent memory have been as wary of the spotlight as Columba Bush, Jeb's wife of 41 years. But her husband's presidential potential means the spotlight is about to find her. Now and then in an otherwise unmemorable speech, Jeb Bush will drop a mention of his wife, like a sudden pop of color. At an event in Nevada this March, one of his first speeches of this campaign season, before a crowd of what The Washington Post called “everyday Americans,” Bush opened with a husband-still-in-thrall routine. His life, he said, can be divided into two parts:...

    Jeb Bush, in an exclusive interview with Fox News’ “The Kelly File,” rejected the suggestion that the momentum behind his likely presidential bid has slowed – calling recent polls “irrelevant” and urging those closely watching them to “take a chill pill.” Bush, though widely expected to run for the Republican nomination, has held back as several other Republicans have officially announced their 2016 campaigns in recent weeks. As they dominate the headlines, some – notably, Bush’s presumed home-state rival, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio – have enjoyed a surge in the polls. But Bush stressed in the interview with Fox News...

In an interview with Megyn Kelly that is to be shown Monday night on Fox News, Mr. Bush said that rather than overturning the order, he believed in “passing meaningful reform of immigration and make it part of it.” The president’s executive order seeks to shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation.

The former Florida governor's play to Hispanic values and policy goals has begun to shape his young political operation. Well before...

    The Obama administration says people in the United States whose home countries are ravaged by Ebola can stay in America. The decision by the Department of Homeland Security will grant temporary status to about 8,000 people currently living in the U.S. The move, first reported by Reuters, was designed to protect people from Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone from being deported back to areas experiencing disaster conditions. The temporary stay currently has an 18-month ceiling on it. However, after that time, DHS will assess whether the protection should be extended. In order to receive protected status, residents from the three...

    Model and TV personality Chrissy Teigen is usually one of Twitter's more resilient members. But after getting lost in a "sea of hate and anger" on the platform, Teigen has tapped out. The 28-year-old turned into a Twitter all-star after she joined in 2009, thanks to her irreverent sense of humor, prolific use and ability to tweet about pretty much anything. But after getting a vitriolic response to her comments regarding the October 22 shootings in Ottawa, Ontario, Teigen posted that she's quitting Twitter for the (presumably) safer pastures of Instagram. Here's what started it all: On Wednesday, as the...

    U.S. authorities have agreed to stop pressuring undocumented immigrants in Southern California to sign off on their own deportations under a legal settlement that may later allow some deportees to return from Mexico to seek U.S. legal residency, advocacy groups said on Wednesday. The deal reached between the American Civil Liberties Union and federal officials stems from a lawsuit brought last year on behalf of other immigration rights groups and about 10 immigrants who accepted so-called "voluntary returns" to Mexico. snip The settlement is limited in scope as most of reforms agreed to by U.S. immigration officials apply only in...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - U.S. authorities have agreed to stop pressuring undocumented immigrants in Southern California to sign off on their own deportations under a legal settlement that may later allow some deportees to return from Mexico to seek U.S. legal residency, advocacy groups said on Wednesday. The deal reached between the American Civil Liberties Union and federal officials stems from a lawsuit brought last year on behalf of other immigration rights groups and about 10 immigrants who accepted so-called "voluntary returns" to Mexico. All of the immigrants had strong grounds for being allowed to remain in the United States...

    Coalition says Obama administration policies to deal with influx at border is unfair to women and children who flee to safety.

    NEW HAVEN -- Wendy Paz Barrios spent her Friday evening in a kitchen making sandwiches for her journey to Washington, D.C. The 17-year-old from Guatemala doesn’t live with family, but with friends here. She rarely speaks to her parents, instead choosing to call only her siblings. But in a way, her sense of family was in that kitchen Friday among several other immigrants who, like her, are making preparations to fight for what they believe in — to stop deportation. Come 4 a.m. Saturday, Barrios and 69 others will be on a bus heading to Washington, D.C., to convince President...

    The UK is to halve to three months the time EU migrants without realistic job prospects can claim benefits. David Cameron said the "magnetic pull" of UK benefits had to be addressed so people came for the right reasons and the rules "put Britain first". The prime minister also warned people in the UK illegally: "We will find you, we will send you home." Labour said the PM's rhetoric masked a record of "failure" on immigration and "firm action" was needed. Ministers have been reluctant to say how many people are likely to be affected by benefit curbs, although BBC...

    Banning the teaching and speaking of Spanish in Public Schools would expel many Illegal Alien Invaders from US Public Schools, and thus reduce the financial impact to US Taxpayers whose taxes pay for Public Schools. The failure of the Obama Administration to protect the Citizens of the US from the expenses and job losses caused by the Invasion of Illegal Alien Invaders from Spanish-speaking countries proves that this Obama-caused "Dreamer" Invasion was implemented by Obama to "Fundamentally transform the United States of America."

    Eric Cantor's primary challenger David Brat ripped the Majority Leader as “the number one Republican supporter of amnesty” in a dramatic press conference steps away from a rival event by a liberal Democrat intended to paint Cantor as the face of GOP intransigence on immigration. The day after Cantor portrayed himself as an anti-amnesty warrior in campaign literature, Brat accused Cantor of coordinating with Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), the Democrat holding the rival press conference, to provide him political cover in his moment of greatest need. Cantor, Brat noted, had previously visited sites with Gutierrez in a pro-immigration reform...
