    An Oklahoma sheriff’s department defied ICE and released an accused rapist from jail this week — and within hours he was back at the door of his alleged victim, the agency said Thursday, saying the county’s sanctuary policy put the woman at risk. Antonio Ulises Perez was charged with first-degree rape on Sept. 30, and made bond early Wednesday morning. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had asked that he be transferred to the custody of deportation officers, but the sheriff’s department refused, and released him instead. “Within a few hours of being released, this illegal alien was back at the...

    El Salvador's President, Nayib Bukele, dismissed the U.S. political storm over a whistleblower report alleging President Trump tried to persuade Ukraine to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, saying "nobody cares" about it. "You're wasting airtime talking about something that nobody cares about," Bukele told Fox News' Martha MacCallum in an interview, after first saying he did not want to get into U.S. politics. Bukele, however, noted he would be more careful about his conversations with President Trump when asked by MacCallum about whether he would be worried that any talk would be released to the public. "Now I'll be...

    <p>Back in June, many on the left pooh-poohed Trump's deal with Mexico to avoid tariffs in exchange for stronger efforts by Mexico to curb the flow of immigrants through their country into the United States. While the positive impact of that deal became apparent almost immediately, we now have a much clearer picture of the impact of the deal Trump struck with Mexico as border apprehensions have plummeted the past three months.</p>

    A federal appeals court sided with the Trump administration on Friday in the legal battle over its efforts to limit asylum claims from Central America – blocking, for now, a nationwide injunction that blocked the implementation of the rule. Last month a California federal judge blocked the rule that would require migrants to first apply in one of the countries they cross on their way to the U.S. – with certain exceptions. The rule is tailored to target Central Americans from the Northern Triangle of Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras who would travel across multiple countries, including Mexico, before claiming...

    Two undocumented immigrants are accused of raping an 11-year-old girl on different occasions, the common denominator being a friendship with the victim's older brother. Montgomery County Police have arrested Mauricio Barrera-Navidad, 29, of Damascus, and Carlos Palacios-Amaya, 28, of Gaithersburg, and charged each with second-degree rape. Last month, the victim — now 12-years-old — spoke with a social worker at her middle school in Germantown. Talking through tears, the girl shared the painful details about what both men allegedly did to her. WHAT HAPPENED In September 2018, the victim was introduced to her older brother's friend, Palacios-Amaya. Over the course...

    President Donald Trump just can't be correct about anything having to do with Baltimore, right? Well, when a Baltimore television station, WJZ, fact checked a White House claim that Baltimore has a higher murder rate than the Central American countries of Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador, perhaps they expected that assertion would be proven false. So imagine their surprise at what their fact check revealed.

    Republican strategist Holly Turner praised the president of El Salvador on Tuesday over reports that he has taken responsibility for the deaths of a Salvadoran man and his toddler who drowned while trying to cross into the United States. “It’s a tragic situation and for him to accept responsibility was moving to me,” Turner, chief financial officer of Stampede Consulting, told Hill.TV. “And I thought, that’s the kind of country that I want us to be supporting,” she added. “If they have a leader in place that accepts responsibility and knows what their real problems are and can put a...

    The Trump administration is facing growing complaints from migrants about severe overcrowding, meager food and other hardships at border holding centers, with some people at an encampment in El Paso being forced to sleep on the bare ground during dust storms. The Border Network for Human Rights issued a report Friday based on dozens of testimonials of immigrants over the past month and a half, providing a snapshot of cramped conditions and prolonged stays in detention amid a record surge of migrant families coming into the U.S. from Central America. The report comes a day after an advocate described finding...

This is the first time India has taken a step back from its decades-old position on the two-state theory under which New Delhi sees both Israel and Palestine as separate and independent countries, seeking to bring peace in West Asia.The vote, which took place on 6 June at the UN, saw countries such as US, France, Germany, India, Japan, UK, South Korea and Canada polling in favour of...

    President Trump congratulated newly-inaugurated Salvadorian President Nayib Bukele, saying he was ready to work with him to advance prosperity in Latin America. “The United States stands ready to work with @NayibBukele to advance prosperity in El Salvador and the hemisphere. Congratulations President Bukele on your inauguration!” Trump tweeted. Bukele retweeted the message shortly after. Bukele, a 37-year-old political outsider officially sworn into office Saturday, has vowed to prioritize bolstering El Salvador’s relationship with Washington, bolster education and social programs to curb gang violence in the country and, in a move likely to please the White House, veer away from the...

    President Trump announced Thursday he’s slapping tariffs on all goods imported from Mexico as punishment for what he darkly described as the country’s failure to combat “chaos” on the U.S. southern border. In a Twitter statement, Trump announced a 5% tariff on all Mexican imports will start June 10. […] The potentially economically crippling tariffs — which will be paid by American consumers of Mexican goods — are allowed under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, Trump said. In his statement, Trump painted the unprecedented number of migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border with a broad and fear-mongering brush.“Gang members,...

    Two teens arrested on murder charges last week in Maryland were supposed to be deported last year, but police in Prince George’s County refused to turn them over to ICE, the immigration agency said Tuesday. The teens, Josue Rafael Fuentes-Ponce, 16, and Joel Ernesto Escobar, 17, both Salvadoran, are connected to the violent MS-13 gang, police say. They stand accused, along with 14-year-old Cynthia Hernandez-Nucamendi, of killing another 14-year-old police say the teens feared would rat them out about another crime. Both Josue and Joel were in custody in Prince George’s County last year on attempted murder charges from another...

    SEATTLE - A federal judge says police in Tukwila acted unconstitutionally when they arrested an illegal immigrant and turned him over to immigration authorities for deportation. Wilson Rodriguez Macareno, who is originally from Honduras, called police early last year about someone trespassing in his yard. The officers instead arrested him based on indications he was in the country illegally and brought him to a detention center for deportation. U.S. District Judge Richard Jones ruled Wednesday that the local police did not have the authority to arrest him for a civil, federal violation. He said a trial will be held to...
