    Sanctuary City policies encourage human trafficking of illegal aliens and whether mayors, supervisors and complicit law enforcement officers are also complicit in those crimes? Every time the issue of illegal aliens or deportation comes up, the Left, argues against something they know isnít going to happen. But the reason the Left always brings the conversation to the line, ďhow are you going to round up and deport 15 million undocumented immigrants?Ē is not to get an answer, It is to get you to feel bad for even thinking about deporting anyone. Because they know it isnít going to happen the...

    HATIMURIA, India -- Eight years ago, a dozen families showed up at this quiet farming village, saying floodwaters had washed away their homes. They spoke with a different accent, and the villagers wondered if they might be illegal Muslim immigrants who had crossed the porous border from neighboring Bangladesh. Illegal immigration has been a contentious,issue in this northeastern state of Assam for more than three decades. Yet "we pitied them and gave them refuge," said Lavanya Bisaya, the 56-year-old mother of the village headman. But as the newcomers' numbers swelled to 200 families, tensions began to mount, until finally villagers...

    When New York City launched the nationís biggest municipal ID card program last year, advocates said it would help people living in the U.S. illegally to venture out of the shadows. But since Donald Trump was elected president, city officials are instead fielding questions about whether the cards could put those same people at greater risk of being deported. The city has vowed to protect cardholdersí personal records and might even delete them using a kind of self-destruct provision that allows for the information to be destroyed at the end of the year.

    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. Nor, for that...

    Our federal government is once again pushing the Constitution aside and using federal agencies to manufacture laws against the will of the American People. Our President-in conjunction with the Justice Department-is attempting to give illegal aliens the right to vote. It is a proven fact that over 1.4 million non-citizens were allowed to vote in the 2008 elections. Of those who voted in 2008, over 80% voted for Democrats, thanks to promises of free, taxpayer funded benefits being given away by the federal government. The non-citizen vote may well have delivered North Carolina to Obama in 2012. If this is...

    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,...

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,...

    Donald Trump is brilliant. Trump is a chess master. His instincts about immigration and the border were 100 percent on the money. First of all, with the terrible Islamic State terrorist attack in Paris, immigration and our open border with Mexico just became the No. 1 issue in America. All the presidential candidates are now playing on Trump‚Äôs home turf. Trump is in command of the most important issue in America. Next, always remember Trump wrote the book on negotiation. It‚Äôs called ‚ÄúThe Art of the Deal.‚ÄĚ Well his new book should be called ‚ÄúThe Art of the Immigration Deal.‚ÄĚ...
  • Two Paris Terrorists Lived in Supposedly Mythical 'No-Go Zone' Neighborhood in Brussels

    Shortly after the Charlie Hebdo Islamic terrorist murders in Paris in January, the establishment press attacked those who dared to state something quite obvious about "no-go zones" in parts of Europe, i.e., that they exist. The media summarily and unilaterally declared that "no-go zones" were a myth propagated by the likes of Fox News, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, longtime terror expert Steven Emerson, and others ‚ÄĒ despite several direct references to them in media accounts, including the New York Times, going back as far as 2002. Well, a not very funny thing has happened during the attempt to hunt down...

    In the wake of the Islamic terrorist attack establishment Republican presidential contender Sen. Marco Rubio is standing by his support for bringing Syrian refugees into the United States of America, despite the evidence that the Paris murder-rampage involved at least one Muslim terrorist who had infiltrated Europe among the thousands of ‚Äúrefugees‚ÄĚ now leaving the Middle East. Rubio‚Äôs astonishing doubling down on his support for this policy of national suicide was documented in a weekend article by our friend Matthew Boyle of Breitbart. When Boyle asked Rubio if after the Paris attack he still supported bringing more Syrian ‚Äúrefugees‚ÄĚ to...

    President Obama wants more Syrian Muslim refugees in the West. Speaking in Turkey on Monday, Obama explained that the West needed to open its heart to Muslim refugees, who after all were fleeing from terrorism in the Middle East to the safe and warm arms of the West. Meanwhile, Obama continued to maintain that Islamic radicalism presents no threat to the world.

  • Rubio‚Äôs Bill Would Have Opened Floodgates to Islamic Refugees ( Gang of 8 )

    Here's a question an incisive debate moderator ought to ask Marco Rubio: are you happy Senators Sessions and Cruz helped defeat your Gang of 8 immigration bill? One of the more obscure yet destructive provisions of the Gang of 8 bill I wrote about in 2013 was section 3405 (page 693), which created an entire new pipeline for refugees. This bill would have concocted an unconditional right to immediate legal permanent resident status for any person in the world who declares himself "stateless." Had the bill passed in 2013, it would have given the Obama administration power to define who...

    As the Republican presidential primary heats up, illegal immigration is again taking center stage. While this is nothing new (as we know President Reagan attempted to address it in the ’80s, John McCain made it a priority in ’08, and on), the discussion has taken an interesting turn this election cycle. At issue, of course, are Obama’s executive amnesty, the recent influx of illegal immigrants (including huge numbers of children), the vast number of illegals currently living and working in the U.S., border security (such as it is), and a host of related issues including the burden of illegal immigration...

    Two of the suicide bombers who caused carnage in the Paris massacre are thought to have sneaked into France by posing as refugees from Syria. The disclosure, which came amid claims of French intelligence failures, inevitably raised new security concerns about Europe‚Äôs borders. Police said the two men, who arrived in Greece last month, were among seven attackers, one as young as 15. One of the attackers was last night named by French media as Mostefai Isma√ęl Omar, 29, from Courcouronnes, in Essonne. Serbian media last night reported that one of the terrorists was named as Ahmed Almuhamed. The newspaper,...
