    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...

The prime minister also warned people in the UK illegally: "We will find you, we will send you home."

    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."

    Republicans, to be seen as a young and dynamic political party, must present a positive agenda that restores opportunity for social mobility and reforms the nation's immigration policies, former Florida governor and possible 2016 presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Thursday. Bush, appearing at a major fundraiser named after his late grandfather U.S. Sen. Prescott Bush, received loud applause from the crowd of nearly 800 Connecticut Republicans for his immigration reform stance.

    There have been times when the CNN host Piers Morgan didnt seem to like America very much and American audiences have been more than willing to return the favor. Three years after taking over for Larry King, Mr. Morgan has seen the ratings for Piers Morgan Live hit some new lows, drawing a fraction of viewers compared with competitors at Fox News and MSNBC. Its been an unhappy collision between a British television personality who refuses to assimilate the only football he cares about is round and his lectures on guns were rife with contempt and a...

    TUCSON My record is 30 minutes, Magistrate Judge Bernardo P. Velasco of Federal District Court here said one afternoon, describing the speed with which he had sealed the fates of a batch of 70 migrants caught sneaking into the country. Each of the accused had 25 seconds, give or take, to hear the charges against him, enter a plea and receive a sentence. This is a part of the battle against illegal immigration that many Americans have never heard of. Known as Operation Streamline, it is the core of a federal program that operates in three border states, using...

    Mike Gallagher, a popular radio talk show host, is once again asking what should be done with foreigners who have invaded our borders. He then goes on to pontificate We cant deport them all. But this question has been answered repeatedly! Make it as uncomfortable as possible for those who have invaded our borders to remain here, e.g., !. Offer a $500 bounty for identifying an employer who hires an undocumented alien. 2. Impose a $5,000 fine upon the conviction of an employer who hires an undocumented alien. 3. Make it a mandatory 1 year jail sentence for an employer...

    CNN host Piers Morgan says people under the age of 25 should not be allowed to buy guns, in light of recent shootings around the country. Wading into the national gun debate, Morgan took to Twitter this week to argue about what he called the "absurdity" of the Second Amendment. He pointed out that the recent Maryland mall shooter, Darion Marcus Aguilar, was 19-years-old. He reasoned that people can't drink alcohol before the age of 21 or rent a car before turning 25, so the government should establish similar standards for gun ownership. "The 19yr-old mall shooter in Maryland was...
