    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...

    Locals in west Dublin have filed an appeal against plans for a large-scale mosque in the area, citing concerns the call to prayer would cause “noise pollution.” The Fingal County Council granted planning permission for a mosque to the Shuhada Foundation of Ireland last month. The mosque, including a 95-foot-tall minaret, a community center, and a primary school is to be built on the site of Warrenstown House, in Blanchardstown. Dr. Taufiq al-Sattar, a neurosurgeon in Dublin, pledged to build the mosque in memory of his late wife and three children who died in an arson attack in Leicester, England,...

    Sweden’s Migration Agency expects to hand over around 50,000 deportation orders to the police in the coming years, but authorities are already struggling to deport those who have been told to leave. When a person receives a negative reply to their asylum application, they are in the first instance asked to leave the country voluntarily. In the next instance, the case gets handed over to the police. Police have so far this year deported more than 3,000 unsuccessful asylum seekers in this way, but they are currently working with around 17,000 cases; and of those, 12,000 have gone underground.The remaining...

    Pope Francis marked UN World Food Day on Monday with a call for world governments to act together to fight the hunger, conflicts and climate change driving mass migration from the developing to the industrialized world. In a speech to the global body’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome, Francis said love rather than pity should be placed at the heart of international development efforts, and threw his weight behind efforts in the UN to negotiate a global accord on managed, safe migration. “Is it too much to ask to think of inserting the concept of love into the...

    The German government has warned the US against withdrawing from the Iran nuclear agreement. US President Donald Trump is expected to decertify Tehran’s compliance with the 2015 deal in a White House speech at 12:45 p.m. (16:45 UTC) on Friday. “We believe this agreement is an important instrument to prevent a nuclear-armed Iran,” German government spokesman Steffen Seibert said on Friday. “If … an important country like the United States comes to a different conclusion as appears to be the case, we will work even harder with other partners to maintain this cohesion,” he said. German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel...

    The Danish government announced on Thursday that it was extending controls at its border with Germany. In a letter to the EU, Copenhagen cited the security risk posed by people fleeing deportation orders south of the border. “The large number of illegal migrants and rejected asylum seekers who are awaiting deportation in Germany are a real security threat,” the Danish government wrote in a letter to the EU justifying the decision to extend border controls. There is “a risk that terror groups will take advantage of their precarious situation,” the letter stated. The Danish government implemented border controls in January...

    As discussed here previously, German Chancellor Angela Merkel may have won another term in the recent elections, but she came away damaged with her previous coalition in tatters. In order to rebuild her alliance in the Bundestag she had to make some new friends and offer concessions to historical allies who were refusing to support her over immigration policy. One of the biggest changes coming out of the recent negotiations is that her former hard line on open borders and no limits on the number of migrants they would accept is out the window. Moving forward, there will be a...

    Brussels’ insistence on ordering European Union (EU) nations to accept third world migrants could lead to the bloc’s break-up, Poland’s president Andrzej Duda has warned. The EU principle of unity, Duda told a press conference Thursday, “must come down to the fact that we work together … we do not try to force other states to act against their own interests and against the interests of their people.” “Therefore, we don’t agree to being dictated to, with regards to the quota system and forcing migrants to move to Poland, against our people’s will,” he stressed, speaking after talks with Bulgarian...

    Gardaí (Irish police) in Galway are investigating an Islamist terror cell in the west of Ireland. The Irish Independent reports that eight men are being monitored in a number of rural locations where local gardaí are keeping a careful eye on them. “The belief is that members of this network are deeply committed to the Islamic State and they are organized,” a Garda source told the paper. The men’s use of Ireland’s mail service, An Post, is being tracked as they’re thought to be using it to send packages on “dummy runs” to fellow Islamists in the Middle East. They’re...

    During the last year of the Obama administration, the U.S. allowed nearly 85,000 refugees to enter the country. President Trump campaigned on a strictimmigration crackdown and a desire to limit mass refugee immigration. TheTrump administration is planning on reducing overall annual refugeeadmissions to, at most, 45,000 annually. The cap has not been this low since 2006. President Trump has also signed a new executive order to limit immigration from eight nations “until we are sure that we can conduct proper screeningand vetting of those countries’ nationals.” Venezuela and North Korea were added to six countries listed on previous bans—Chad, Iran,...

    Police and federal officials said Sunday that the man suspected of stabbing a police officer and plowing a van into pedestrians on Saturday night is a 30-year-old refugee from Somalia, who had been interviewed by the RCMP in 2015. Police and politicians urged Canadians to be vigilant, but called for calm and unity in the wake of a terrorist attack in Edmonton that injured five and led to the arrest of a 30-year-suspect who had previously been investigated for espousing extremist views. It is the second major terrorist attack in Canada this year, following January’s shooting at a mosque in...

    Two people have been killed during a knife attack at a Marseille train station, according to police. The assailant, who was reportedly shouting ‘Allahu Akbar,’ was shot dead by an army patrol at the scene. The incident took place at the Saint-Charles train station in Marseille on Sunday, when a man attacked passers-by with a knife. One person was killed by the assailant at the scene, while another succumbed a short while after, according to police chief Olivier de Mazières. The attacker, who was reportedly shouting “Allahu Akbar,” was shot dead by an army patrol. At least two shots were...

    Pope Francis flew to Bologna, Italy, Sunday and met with a large group of migrants and refugees, calling them “warriors of hope” while insisting that nations open broader avenues for immigration. During a full day in Bologna, Francis spent an hour meeting hundreds of migrants personally while posing with them for selfies under light drizzle. Later, the pontiff hosted a luncheon for asylum-seekers and prisoners in the St. Petronius basilica. He even donned a yellow plastic ID bracelet used by asylum-seekers to express his solidarity with them. “Do you know what you are? You are ‘warriors of hope’!” Francis exclaimed...

    Douglas Murray has written what is probably the most important book of the last 50 years. His extremely readable The Strange Death of Europe clarifies so many issues that are swirling around our lives. It is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the state of the Western world today. I had the distinct pleasure of spending a couple of hours with Murray while he was on a recent trip to Los Angeles. It was hard to focus the conversation because there are so many immense concepts conveyed by Murray in the book even though it is just 320...

    As a symbol of Islamic separatism, supremacism and misogyny, the Islamic burqa is hard to beat. Outside of the mosque, it's an affront to every Judeo-Christian sensibility to see it on the streets of the West, a giant middle finger to the host culture, and a promise of more Islam to come. So good on Austria for finally taking action: A law prohibiting any kind of full-face covering, known popularly as the “Burqa Ban,” takes effect Sunday in Austria, where the strong support for it portends potential political upheaval in the upcoming national election. Parties campaigning on an anti-migrant message...

    A Swiss regional politician was convicted Thursday for helping 24 migrants to illegally cross from Italy into Switzerland and for repeatedly inciting others to do the same. Lisa Bosia Mirra, a Socialist member of the Ticino parliament in southern Switzerland, was found guilty of the offenses by a regional court and sentenced to a suspended fine, the ATS news agency reported. She helped Eritreans and Syrians stuck at the train station in Como, near the Swiss border, in mid-2016. “The facts have been admitted to by the defendant, who over a period of two weeks worked along with accomplices to...

    A French woman whose jihadist son fought, and is thought to have died, in Syria was given a two-year jail sentence for financing terrorism on Thursday because she sent him money. Nathalie Haddadi, 43, insisted she did not know how her son Belabbas Bounaga spent the money she wired to him and said the conviction was a “double punishment” for a grieving mom. “I have trouble understanding how they can accuse me of financing terrorism,” Haddadi told reporters before hearing the verdict. “I helped my son,” she said, while insisting she had never sent money to Syria. […] Haddadi, a...

    Mosques in Switzerland should not be financed from abroad and imams should be obliged to preach in a Swiss national language, the Swiss lower house of parliament decided on Tuesday. MPs voted by 94 to 89 in favor of a bill lodged by the Lega dei Ticinesi party, which aims to tighten the rules for mosques in Switzerland, reported news agency ATS. […] Though the bill was narrowly passed by MPs, it is not backed by the Federal Council, which feels the proposed restrictions are not necessary nor useful, according to ATS. The bill discriminates against Muslims by placing them...

    The first group of Muslim refugees is set to arrive in the U.S. from resettlement camps in Australia. The first party to arrive in the states includes 52 people who are already in-transit from Australia to Los Angeles. In return, Australia will accept central American refugees from a camp in Costa Rica. Under an Obama-era deal over 1,200 Muslim migrants from Afghanistan, Iran, and Sri Lanka will arrive in the U.S. ... the resettlement deal is unfair to the U.S. as central American migrants do not pose a threat of radical Islamic terror to Australia.

    The news report below shows the polarization in the crowd at a recent campaign rally for German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Many thanks to Nash Montana for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling. A note from the translator: That last sentence is very cryptic. I do not know what they mean. Do they mean to say that most who will vote in Berlin, will vote for others such as AfD? There’s no explanation for this, and comments are disabled on the original video.
