Police officers at the UCs 10 campuses will not contact, detain, question or arrest any individual solely on the basis of immigration status, except as required by law, the school system said in a statement. The move comes in response to the election of Donald Trump, who has promised a widespread crackdown on illegal immigration.

    President-elect Donald Trump ran on a platform of being extremely tough on immigration. One of his vows to voters was that hed get rid of President Barack Obamas executive actions, which could include those that provided protections to young undocumented immigrants from being deported. One Republican lawmaker and Trump critic is now prepping legislation that would keep those protections in place in case Trump moves forward with his pledge. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) has said he is working with both Democrats and Republicans in order to protect immigrants, known as Dreamers, who willingly came forward to give their information in...

    White House officials moved Thursday afternoon to stop the nascent effort by Democrats and immigration activists asking President Obama to pardon so-called DREAMers, releasing a statement to BuzzFeed News that the president does not have the power to do so. The president takes the executive clemency power seriously. As a general matter, we do not comment on the likelihood of whether a specific pardon may be granted, should one be requested, a White House official said. We note that the clemency power could not give legal status to any undocumented individual. As we have repeatedly said for years, only Congress...

    WASHINGTON ― Democrats are pressuring President Barack Obama to do whatever he can before leaving office to protect the more than 740,000 undocumented young people to whom he granted temporary work permits from the threat of deportation under the new administration. On Thursday, Reps. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.) and Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.) asked Obama to issue pardons to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals recipients, many of whom fear they could soon be under threat of deportation from President-elect Donald Trump. The request is a long shot. Obama created the program for so-called Dreamers using executive authority, and there’s...

    Hillary Clinton's campaign on Sunday announced a program to recruit undocumented "Dreamers" into a voter registration army even though they are not allowed to vote. Celebrating the four-year anniversary of President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Clinton launched "Mi Sueno, Tu Voto" (My Dream, Your Vote), to rally and "secure commitments" from immigrants who can vote. The DACA program created so-called "Dreamers," the children of illegal immigrants who the president has offered renewable two-year work visas and deportation deferral. The goal for many in the program is amnesty. "We may not have the right to vote, but 'Mi...

    President Barack Obama sought to reassure millions of immigrants in the U.S. illegally that he has no plans to deport them, while acknowledging that the Supreme Courts deadlock Thursday marks the end of the road for his push to reform the U.S. immigration system. Though Obama predicted an immigration overhaul is inevitable, he conceded it wont happen while hes president due to opposition from the current Congress. Working to lay the groundwork for the next president to pick up the effort, he cast the election in November as a referendum on how the country would treat its immigrants. Were going...

    The Supreme Courts deliberations over President Barack Obamas immigration order are putting that potential deportation relief on a collision course with Donald Trumps deportation force. Its still an open question whether the shorthanded court will ultimately determine that Obama has the authority to defer deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants. And until it gives its answer next month, his administration isnt allowed to prepare for the possibility by hiring staff or creating forms. White House officials have told immigrant advocacy groups itll take about two months to get everything up and running which would put the first applications for...

Shocking video has emerged from the anti-Donald Trump protests in California showing Hispanic children probably 10 to 12 years old giving the middle finger to cars of Trump supporters. The kids, wearing sombreros and ironically holding signs reading No hate, screamed F*ck you! repeatedly at the passing motorists. One of the children in the center of the action could be seen wearing a Bernie Sanders sticker. Hillary Clinton campaign signs could also be seen in the crowd. One sign reads F*ck You Puto.

    PHOENIX Arizona cannot legally deny "dreamers'' the right to drive, a federal appeals court ruled late Tuesday. A three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Arizona cannot decide for itself who is legally entitled to be in this country. The judges said that power rests solely with Congress. The judges also said the policy of denying licenses to those in the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program ran afoul of the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution. That's because the state was still issuing licenses to others in different deferred action programs....

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. - When Grecia Rivas graduated from a Tucson high school a few years ago, she thought her days in a classroom were over. She was an immigrant living in the U.S. illegally and counselors didn't know what to tell her about college prospects, though she had a 3.8 grade point average. It was the height of Arizona's SB1070, a state law designed to target immigrants like her, and Arizona colleges at that time didn't allow such immigrants to attend at in-state tuition rates. The 24-year-old from Nogales, Mexico, is now pursuing a degree in graphic design at one...

    Mexican drug cartels continue to fascinate the minds of Americans who tend to idolize outlaw gunmen with fast cash, fancy cars, guns and women. However, few realize that Mexican drug cartels are as ruthless and sadistic as Middle Eastern terror groups like ISIS with whom they actually have many tactics in common. For most in America, the closest they have come to a drug cartel is the small-time drug peddler in the street corner, the glamorous TV shows, or the Mexican narco-ballads. However, taking a step back and looking at their entire structure, and how those drugs got from Central...

Pressed on what he'd do if the immigrants in question had nowhere to return to, Trump reiterated: "They have to go." "We will work with them. They have to go. Chuck, we either have a country, or we don't have a...

    Homeland Security has revoked 22 Dreamers amnesties, but officials would not say this weekend whether that means they will be actively deported or whether they will be allowed to remain in the U.S. without the ability to work. The amnesties were revoked as the department tried to clean up the mess it left months ago when it broke a federal courts order and issued three-year deportation amnesties even after Judge Andrew S. Hanen issued an injunction halting the entire program.

    Former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina said Monday that adult illegal immigrants should not receive a path to citizenship under an immigration fix, but said she is open to giving their children citizenship. Mrs. Fiorina, who is running for the GOP presidential nomination, also said she could support giving those who have come here illegally and stayed here illegally legal status. I think legal status is a possibility for sure, Mrs. Fiorina said on MSNBCs Morning Joe. I think their children maybe can become citizens.

    Video at link, worth watching. A California lawman whose department is investigating the brutal rape and bludgeoning death of a 64-year-old Air Force veteran pointed the finger Friday at state and federal policies he said allowed the illegal immigrant suspect to roam the streets despite a lengthy arrest record. I think this is a national issue - it starts with administration and their policies, Santa Maria Police Chief Ralph Martin said days after Marilyn Pharis died from injuries suffered in the July 24 attack. You can draw a direct line to this governor and Legislature. I am not remiss to...

    No good deed goes unpunished. The truth of that adage was confirmed in spades last week when a Montana couple, Jason and Tara Shane, described as Good Samaritans for helping a stranded young, Mexican motorist were shot and killed for their effort. Their daughter, Jorah Shane, 26, was wounded. Jesus Deniz Mendoza, 18, a Mexican national who entered the United States legally two years ago, shot the Shanes when they stopped to assist with a broken-down car. Shortly after the shooting, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement indicated that Mendoza had legally entered the country from Mexico through the San Ysidro...

    According to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), 18-year-old Jesus Yeizon Deniz-Mendoza, from Mexico, was legally admitted to enter the United States at the San Ysidro Port of Entry May 31, 2013. The following is an official statement from ICE, regarding what could happen if Deniz is convicted of a crime: This individual does not have any criminal convictions, and, as a permanent resident, is not currently removable. Thus, an ICE detainer cannot be placed on the individual at this time. However, ICE is closely monitoring this case and coordinating with local authorities. If he is convicted for a...

    PHOENIX (KPHO/KTVK) - The 14-year-old who was allegedly driving drunk when he caused a crash that left two people badly injured earlier this week will be charged as an adult. Normally the name and photo of a juvenile offender would not be made public, but because he is being charged and tried as an adult, the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office released Miguel Angel Maldonado's photo Wednesday. According to police, the teen was driving west on Van Buren Street when he ran a red light and plowed into an SUV. A surveillance camera from a nearby restaurant recorded the horrifying crash.

    Three MS-13 street-gang members from El Salvador are being held without bail on charges they forced a 16-year-old New York girl into the woods near a golf course, and two of them raped her while the third kept watch. This is one of the most brutal, heinous crimes that I have seen in a long, long time, Suffolk County District Attorney Thomas Spota said at a news conference, according to New Yorks WNBC-TV. This poor young woman is so lucky that, quite frankly, that she is alive. These are vicious young men, vicious young men, and what they did to...
