    According to new reports, a group of seven illegal aliens are suing the Department of Homeland Security due to conditions in Border Patrol detention facilities. The migrants also claim to have not been given access to adequate legal representation, and allege that the conditions in the overcrowded facilities are “dangerous and inhumane.” Now, the illegals are suing, claiming they want to be released on bond. Over the past several months, illegal immigration at the US-Mexico border has surged dramatically, prompting law enforcement officials to repeatedly seek help from lawmakers.

    When I was the director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, I often talked about sanctuary cities and how politicians who push them were dishonest with their communities. I often talked about how these jurisdictions are un-American, undermine public safety, put the public in harm’s way and make life harder and more dangerous for law enforcement. Let's dissect the false narrative pushed by advocates for sanctuary policies. We often hear that sanctuary policies enable victims and witnesses to report crime and communicate with police without the worry of being turned over to ICE and being deported. Other politicians say that...

    Bill 31 would have restricted the Honolulu Police Department from aiding federal immigration authorities. 'Sanctuary City' Measure Dies In Honolulu City Council The sponsors of a City Council measure that would have made Honolulu a "sanctuary city" have decided not to pursue its passage after it generated considerable opposition. Bill 31, which was introduced by Councilwomen Ann Kobayashi and Carol Fukunaga before the full council June 5, would have barred the Honolulu Police Department from cooperating with federal immigration enforcement agencies in many instances. Kobayashi and Fukunaga declined to comment on the bill, but released a joint statement explaining why...

    The acting Homeland Security secretary gave lawmakers a glimpse Tuesday into just how many asylum seekers skip their hearings after being released into the United States -- telling a Senate panel that a recent program found 90 percent miss their court dates. Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan how many asylum seekers coming across the southern border show up for their hearings. “It depends on demographic, the court, but we see too many cases where people are not showing up,” he said, telling Graham that DHS recently conducted a pilot program with family units....

    As the Trump administration attempts to deal with the crisis at the border, the Trump administration is reportedly taking a different approach. They're sending Homeland Security agents and investigators to the Guatemala-Mexico border to advise Guatemala’s national police and migration authorities, the Washington Post said. The goal is to keep these people from flocking to the United States' border. "Plans call for at least several dozen DHS agents and investigators, and one DHS official briefed on the plans said about 80 U.S. law enforcement personnel will deploy as part of the mission," WaPo reported. "Another DHS official said Immigration and...

    The DHS is releasing the migrants on the fast-track process “because they do not have the space” to detain migrants long enough to start the deportation process, said Andrew Arthur, a former immigration judge who works at the Center for Immigration Studies, a Washington, DC-based research. Congress will not fund shelters to hold more than 2,500 migrants with children, so it is allowing the border agencies to be overwhelmed by the rush of migrants.

    For years, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and the Border Patrol have said their facilities are overwhelmed and the system is severely broken. Politicians in Washington, D.C. have debated the issue, but one thing they can't debate is the cold hard facts. And the fact is we have people from around the world taking advantage of loopholes in our immigration system, a Border Patrol whistleblower told Townhall. Central American caravan riders have overwhelmed the Border Patrol since last fall when they began coming to the United States en masse. Mexico established a system to help the U.S. deal with the...

"With five kids that have died ... the evidence is really clear that this is intentional, it’s a policy choice being made on purpose by this administration and it’s cruel and inhumane," the freshman Democrat, who is...

Joseph Dunford said during a Senate Appropriations defense subcommittee hearing. The Defense Department has provided a...
