    The rhetoric on immigration during the presidential campaign season has struck fear into the hearts of many foreign-born families, and a new network of Minnesota churches is mobilizing to respond. The Lutheran Church of the Redeemer on St. Paul’s Dale Street already maintains 22 shelter beds for the homeless in its basement, where families with no other place to go often spend the night on a temporary basis. The Rev. James Erlandson said those beds may soon serve a different purpose: offering sanctuary to those facing deportation. “That’s a moral stand that we’ve taken,” Erlandson said. “We want to say: ‘Don’t increase...

    Mayor Rahm Emanuel on Friday kept up his postelection push to position himself as a protector of immigrants against President-elect Donald Trump, announcing the creation of a $1 million "legal protection fund" to help those fighting possible deportation. The fund was created in partnership with the National Immigrant Justice Center to "provide immediate legal information, screenings, consultations and representation to individuals who may be at risk for deportation," according to a news release from Emanuel's office. The money will come from the $20 million the city set aside for Emanuel's property tax rebate program, according to city spokeswoman Jennifer Martinez.

    Jamiel Shaw Sr. has been fighting the lonely battle against illegal immigration since 2008, when his 17-year-old son, Jamiel Shaw Jr., was gunned down in broad daylight by illegal alien gang members in the sanctuary city of Los Angeles. It was determined at trial that Jamiel Jr., who had no criminal record or ever any history with gangs, was targeted and killed due to the color of his skin. The elder Shaw helped create Jamiel’s Law, a proposed ordinance to deport known illegal alien gang members, and has testified before Congress multiple times on the matter. But after years of...

    Immigrant communities across the country — including South Florida — are in a state of panic. We can’t blame them. They have a right to be fearful of what the future holds under President-elect Donald Trump and the encouragement he offered to the kind of haters who seem to enjoy shouting the mantra “deport ’em all.” The atmosphere of hate that came into the open during the campaign has exploded since Mr. Trump’s victory. In a six-day period beginning Nov. 9, the day after the election, the Southern Poverty Law Center recorded 437 reports of hateful intimidation and harassment, 136...

He used the figure in a number of his rallies, including his infamous, Phoenix speech, in which he outlined his immigration plan, and it appears in his plan for the first 100 days in office. The Trump team even shared its official source for the two million criminal immigrant figure with the Washington Post: a 2013 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) budget report to Congress. So, go ahead, open the report, and scroll to page 1092. You too will find the following line: “ICE...

The measures come as Hispanic communities, including documented and undocumented Mexican immigrants, have expressed concern over an uptick in racially motivated attacks in the week since Donald Trump’s election.

Be calm, do not fall for provocations and don't let yourself be fooled," Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations Claudia Ruiz Massieu said in a video posted to Twitter announcing the steps.

The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), otherwise known as President Obama’s “Dreamers”, and the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans (DAPA), which targets the parents of the dreamers, has conveniently assembled a registration of names and...

    A 29-year-old U.S. citizen has been deported from Russia after illegally entering the country in search of “a better life,” Russian media reported Monday. The man, identified as Colorado-based insurance salesman Julio Prieto, is reported to have attempted to enter Russia via its southern border with Kazakhstan. However, after being denied entry because he lacked a visa, Prieto attempted to sneak over the border and was detained by border guards on Sept. 14. The local prosecutor’s office said that Prieto told them he had been “looking for a better life,” Ria Novosti reported in October, with hopes of finding employment...

    The Obama administration is delaying deportation proceedings for recent immigrants in cities across the United States, allowing more than 56,000 of those who fled Central America since 2014 to remain in the country legally for several more years. The shift, described in interviews with immigration lawyers, federal officials and current and former judges, has been occurring without public attention for months. It amounts to an unannounced departure from the administration’s widely publicized pronouncements that cases tied to the so-called surge of 2014 would be rushed through the immigration courts in an effort to deter more Central Americans from entering the...

A new chart and analysis from the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, obtained exclusively by Breitbart News, details the extent to which taxpayers are paying more and more for fewer and fewer deportations. More specifically, according to the Subcommittee, while Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) budget for detention and removal budget grew 25 percent from FY 2012 to FY 2015, the total number of aliens it removed plummeted by nearly 43 percent. In FY 2012, ICE deported...

Since 2009, the Obama administration has removed 2.5 million people from American soil — an enormous crackdown that has consumed an enormous amount of money.

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz says he doesn't support sending forces to round up and deport illegal immigrants, likening such a policy to "a police state." "I don't intend to send jackboots to knock on your door and every door in America, that's not how we enforce the law for any crime," Mr. Cruz told CNN in an interview broadcast Sunday.

    Ted Cruz had a message for conservatives rabid for the repeal of Obamacare: Don't expect "Day One" results."The president doesn't have the constitutional authority to end it on Day One," he said in an interview aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union. "The only way to end it is to repeal that statute ... we will repeal Obamacare, but unlike Obama, I don't intend as president to be - to use his word - an emperor."It's a rare appeal to pragmatism from a candidate who typically stokes the conservative id. It came initially as a response to questions about...

    Sen. Ted Cruz insists he'll deport 11 million illegal immigrants in the U.S. if elected president, but won't create a special force to do it. Cruz's opponent Donald Trump has said he would create a deportation force that will go from "door-to-door" and remove all of the illegal immigrants from the country. Pressed by CNN's Jake Tapper over whether he would do the same, Cruz said there are already agencies to do that. "We have a door-to-door force, it's called ICE and border patrol," the Texas Republican said. -snip- Pressed by Tapper to explain how he would remove an estimated...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz does not plan to authorize a special force to deport the undocumented immigrants currently in the country, he told CNN's Jake Tapper, setting up a policy contrast with Donald Trump. Cruz, who over the past few weeks has specifically endorsed deportations after months of resisting, said in an interview that aired Sunday on "State of the Union" that the U.S. should catch those who came here illegally under normal law enforcement practices, not through round-ups of the estimated 11 million undocumented people living in the U.S. "No, I don't intend to send jackboots to knock on...

    Creating a contrast with Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz ruled out the use of a new federal "deportation force" to seek and deport illegal immigrants. -snip- JAKE TAPPER: I don't mean to sound disrespectful, but it is a simple question, yes or no. Will you have people going door to door rounding people up? TED CRUZ: We don't have any system that knocks door to door every person in America, that is not how the American law enforcement system works... We don't live in a police state. We do have law enforcement, how do we catch people? We catch them...

    Leaders of the church-based Sanctuary Movement vowed on Friday to offer their places of worship as refuge for immigrants facing deportation under an Obama administration crackdown on Central American families who entered the United States illegally. The statement came two days after The Washington Post first reported the U.S. government was planning a series of raids to remove hundreds of undocumented families as early as January in the first such large-scale effort targeting the recent flood of border crossers. The Department of Homeland Security preparations to intensify deportations of Central American migrants, confirmed by U.S. government sources, drew immediate fire...

    The number of children who are caught trying to slip across the U.S.-Mexico border alone and illegally has quietly surged again more than a year after President Obama referred to the problem as an "urgent humanitarian situation." While the world has been focused on Europe's migrant crisis, apprehensions of unaccompanied minors along America's own border have exploded: More than 10,000 undocumented children have been stopped in just the last two months, according to U.S. Border and Customs Protection. The 10,588 apprehensions are a 106 percent increase over the same Oct. 1 through Nov. 30 period from last year, when 5,129...

    Dear President Obama, Secretary Johnson, I am writing to ask your help in averting the deportation of Ibrahim Parlak. For the past 25 years Mr. Parlak, a Kurd from Turkey, has lived an exemplary life in America. Having been granted political asylum in 1991, he advanced from busboy to restaurant owner and became known and beloved by his community. Mr. Parlak has employed dozens of Americans, paid taxes for 25 years, and is a loving father to an American citizen daughter. When in 2004 DHS moved to deport him, Ibrahim’s family, friends, and community stood by him, and continue more...

    Every year the 89,000 employees of the Internal Revenue Service attempt to enforce the tax laws for well over 200 million taxpayers. Obviously this is impossible and taxpayers could ignore the law with near impunity. Yet, they don't. Somehow the IRS persuades the vast majority of the taxpayers to pay up. If the IRS said that it would be inhumane to prosecute tax scofflaws because they have children that need to eat and that most tax scofflaws are good people who have run into hard times, what would happen? What would happen is that the population of tax scofflaws would...

    Self-deportation was the mantra of the Mitt Romney campaign. At the time, it was seen as a kinder and gentler alternative to forcibly deporting illegal aliens, because even Republicans became afraid of being supportive of enforcing our immigration laws, for fear of being viewed as cruel or heartless by the liberal media. The politics has moved in four years on the Republican side to the point where we have three kinds of candidates: Trump, who calls for mass deportations, Ă  la Operation Wetback; nearly everyone else, who calls for no deportations and varying states of legalization; and Ted Cruz, who...
