    Things got a little heated Monday when a group of young immigrants confronted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi at a pro-DACA press conference in San Francisco. Several dozen young immigrants shouted down the top House Democrat, following her recent conversations with President Donald Trump over the future of a program that grants many of them legal status. "We are immigrant youth, undocumented and unafraid," they chanted, taking over a scheduled press conference Pelosi, along with Reps. Barbara Lee and Jared Huffman, organized to call for the immediate passage of the Dream Act, a federal proposal that offered many of the...

    The Sheriff’s Office in Greenville County, South Carolina, has confirmed that immigration services determined a man accused of shooting and killing a local high school girl was in the U.S. illegally. Officials arrested 19-year-old Daniel De Jesus Rangel Sherrer and charged him with the murder of 18-year-old Diana Martinez-Gonzalez, who was found shot to death last week in a patch of woods along the 400 block of Saluda Dam Road in Easley, South Carolina. Deputies said they received a call from a friend of the victim who was “frantic” over the crime, according to Fox Carolina. At a recent press...
  • Trump seeks border wall, crackdown on unaccompanied minors for 'Dreamer' deal

    President Donald Trump, who pledged to work with Democrats to protect "Dreamers" — young people brought illegally to the United States as children — called on Sunday for money to fund a border wall and thousands more immigration officers to be part of any deal. Trump's list of immigration "principles," laid out in a document seen by Reuters, is likely to be a non-starter for Democrats, who are seeking a legislative fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that Trump ended last month. The proposal includes a crackdown on unaccompanied minors who enter the United States, many...

    SACRAMENTO — California will beef up protections for undocumented immigrants beginning in January under a controversial new law Gov. Jerry Brown signed Thursday to create a statewide sanctuary policy. Brown signed the bill and 10 other immigration-related bills on the same day as a critical deadline for immigrants aided by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, who must file by Thursday for a final two-year extension before the program is phased out.

    NY Post ^ | September 26, 2017 | Jonathan S. Tobin
    On Monday, three Republican senators unveiled a bill to deal with the DACA mess President Trump dumped in their laps earlier this month. Rather than merely keep his promise to rescind President Barack Obama’s unilateral decision to grant legal status to children who were brought into the United States illegally, Trump gave Congress six months to pass a bill resolving the dilemma of the so-called DREAMers, so named because of the acronym of the original bill that promised them relief. But if they think liberals will accept anything short of the full amnesty for those kids and their families that...

    On this weekend’s broadcast of “Fox News Sunday,” Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) said that last week in a meeting between President Donald Trump, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY), a “basic understanding” on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program was reached. Durbin said, “We’re going forward with the understanding that we can work with the White House to come up with an agreement that includes DACA, that includes citizenship for those who are protected under the DREAM Act and also has a substantial commitment to increase border protection. Those are the...
  • Nightmare: DACA Amnesty DREAM Act Will Cost $115 Billion Thanks to Obamacare

    Taxpayers in the United States will face a steep bill if the Trump administration signs legislation to extend legal status to so-called “Dreamers,” the illegal aliens who arrived as children and are now protected under the Obama-holdover unlawful executive order known as DACA. The cost of a legislation to legalize childhood arrivals is likely to be far higher than earlier attempts because of Obamacare’s health insurance subsidies. The Affordable Care Act subsidizes the costs of health insurance for millions of Americans and would likely foot the bill for many of those whose residency in the U.S. would be legalized by...

    More posturing from Democrats who are looking to capitalize politically on Donald Trump's plan phase out DACA over 6 months. One Democratic congressman is threatening to shut down the government unless Republicans in congress pass the DREAM Act, which would legalize most DREAMers. The Hill: Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) threatened on Friday to back a government shutdown if the House failed to pass the Dream Act to protect thousands of young immigrants from being deported.  "We have a Democratic caucus where I know the vast majority of the members of the Democratic caucus are ready to say ‘If there is no...

    WASHINGTON -- No issue has torn President Donald J. Trump as much DACA -- that is the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program enacted by the Obama administration in June 2012 to provide temporary legal status to undocumented immigrants who came to the United States as children. The White House has said that it will issue a decision on DACA's future Tuesday. As a candidate, Trump had promised his supporters that if elected, he would eliminate DACA on "day one." But after he came into office, the new president could not pull the trigger. "But the DACA situation is a...

    Lindsey Graham just proved how out of touch he is with the Republican Party. The so-called ‘Republican’ just challenged the voters to vote him out if they are against illegal immigration. “To the people who object to this, I don’t want you to vote for me because I cannot serve you well,” said Graham during a press conference. “The key here is to be fair to the 11 million [illegal immigrants], starting with the ‘Dreamers,’ but convince people we’re going to do what our great friend Ronald Reagan was not able to do, we’re going to actually secure the border,...

    More than 500 Stanford University students, faculty and staff members walked out of classrooms and ducked out of jobs Tuesday in a protest of the policies of Donald Trump, the latest in a wave of Bay Area and national demonstrations against the president-elect. Some of the Stanford dissidents, though, came with a concrete demand for the university’s administrators: investigating the possibility of the South Bay campus serving as a sanctuary against the sort of millions of deportations Trump has said he’ll seek as president. Hundreds of people — students, faculty, staff and other supporters — had as of Tuesday evening...

    Monday, May 02, 2016 Taxpayer-funded financial aid for immigrant college tuition heads to IL House SPRINGFIELD - Two Republican state senators - Christine Radogno and Chris Nybo - crossed the aisle last week to support the Democrats' effort to provide taxpayer-funded financial assistance for undocumented immigrant students. The measure would add Illinois to the five states that grant immigrant students financial aid for college education regardless of their legal status. Already, Illinois is one of 18 states that allows any status immigrants to qualify for lower in-state tuition and set up private college funds. SB 2196 easily passed the Illinois...

    Sheriff Charles Jenkins testifies before the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security. (screen grab) (CNSNews.com) - In testimony before Congress Tuesday, a Maryland Sheriff said the administration’s executive actions delaying deportation of illegals is resulting in a spike of crime. “Case by case amnesty, back door amnesty, DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) programs, and the Dream Act were pushed through by executive order,” Frederick County Md. Sheriff Charles Jenkins said on Tuesday. “Policy shifts by President Obama weakened and ruined Secure Communities, and did not allow action by ICE when Sheriffs and police departments ignored detainers,...

Fresh from a presidential debate that saw him criticized for speaking Spanish, lacking energy and having a Mexican wife, the former Florida governor took the jibes from Donald Trump and appeared to feed off them before an audience of business leaders in Houston. “Earned legal status is the dignified way, the practical way, the American way of solving the problem of 12...

    Three out of the four leading candidates for the GOP nomination for president are "softliners" on immigration.  Since people who believe in enforcing the law are "hardliners," those who don't must be softliners, right? In this case, depending on what poll you look at, the "softliners" in the second, third, and fourth place spots are either Carson, Carly, and Jeb or Carly, Carson, and Rubio.  Let's take them one at a time. Rubio is Mr. Amnesty.  He authored an amnesty bill for illegals with the "Gang of 8" (which in many ways was twice as bad as the Maoist...

I don’t support amending the Constitution or challenging the 14th Amendment,” Fiorina told NBC News on the topic of Trump’s immigration policy. “I think these are ideas that stoke anger but don’t solve problems. I think Donald Trump is stoking anger without solving problems. And I think others, now, are sadly pandering to him.”...
