    Right Wing News ^ | 2/8/2016 | Tersa Monroe Hamilton
    There is a very good reason that so many conservatives don't trust Marco Rubio. Some would have you believe it was youthful naivete and inexperience that allowed him to be compromised by the Gang of Eight. I don't think so. I think he was offered money and power and immediately caved. Donald Trump's Senior Policy Adviser, Stephen Miller, is telling a story about Marco Rubio and how he treated an ICE officer during the Gang of Eight's manipulations and it is revealing. Not in a good way either. Miller was the communications director for Sen. Jeff Sessions, so he was...

    On today’s program of Breitbart News Daily, Donald Trump’s Senior Policy Adviser, Stephen Miller, shared his never-before publicly discussed insights into Sen. Marco Rubio’s duplicitous conduct during his push to get the Gang of Eight bill through the Senate. At that time, Miller served as the communications director for the man who organized opposition to the bill, Senator Sen. Jeff Sessions. Miller recalled how throughout the Gang of Eight push, Sen. Rubio “directly deceived” immigration law enforcement and the American people.

    The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is planning to cut 50 percent of the budget for aerial surveillance along the U.S.-Mexico border, agents revealed at a congressional hearing Thursday. In an effort to understand why DHS is cutting funding, Texas's Republican Gov. Greg Abbott and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, wrote a bi-partisan letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson. "Any decrease in aerial observation is not only imprudent, but contradicts the very mission of border security enforcement," the letter states. The lawmakers' letter also asks for detailed information about the reduction aerial-based border security, also known as Operation Phalanx. Abbott and...

    Illegal immigrant women being detained at a California jail say they are being "humiliated" by strip-searches, particularly in cases involving transgender detainees, and have filed a complaint demanding federal officials put a stop to it. The complaint, sent Monday to the Santa Ana City Jail and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which contracts with the jail to hold illegal immigrants, is the latest step in an escalating push by immigrant rights advocates to try to end the detention of women and children in the country illegally and, in the meantime, to alleviate conditions at the facilities. In this case, advocates...

I surmise that with the publication of this second study, the original is now confirmed. I suppose John Cook will have to revise his “Denial 101” video on Antarctica now.

The first case comes out of New Llano, a Louisiana town of about 2,500 near the Texas border. In the course of doing their job, a pair of police...

The administration last year eased federal restrictions against terrorist activity for refugees and asylum seekers. Under the old rules, these 1,519 foreign nationals would have been banned from entering the country because they supported terrorist causes. But under the new rules for vetting refugees, the secretary of Homeland Security has discretionary authority to waive certain cases of inadmissibility relating to terrorist activity. A person could have provided shelter or sold a weapon to a terrorist,...

When the Obama administration initiated its unilateral policy of prosecutorial discretion, allowing illegal immigrants to remain in the U.S. as long they have not yet been convicted of a serious felony crime, they found attorney Vroom too slow in authorizing the release of illegal aliens who had committed crimes in the U.S. but did not yet meet the administrations high threshold for seeking deportation of such undocumented aliens. U.S. immigration law, as enacted by Congress pursuant to the Constitution, provides that any...

    A litigation battle is raging between the states and President Barack Obama over his attempt to impose a nationwide sanctuary policy for illegal aliens.

    Deportation orders failed to oust two illegal immigrants who are now up on drug charges and under investigation in the July 4 shooting death of a Lawrence grandmother in an alarming case that critics say illustrates a revolving immigration door with dangerous consequences. Dominican Republic nationals Wilton Lara-Calmona and Jose M. Lara-Mejia were arrested on drug charges by police investigating the shooting death of Mirta Rivera, 41. The Lawrence nurse was killed in her sleep by a gunshot fired through the ceiling from an upstairs apartment, where both men lived. But Immigration and Customs Enforcement records reviewed by the...

    San Franciscos deputy sheriffs have joined the fight over the departments handling of deportation requests. The deputys union is filing a grievance against the sheriff demanding that he rescind his non-cooperation policy with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi is running for re-election. His campaign has been hit from all sides over his handling of the Pier 14 shooting suspect, and now his own deputies are entering the fray. Mirkarimi told reporters the deputy unions complaint is no surprise. "Exactly, its politics," he said. The deputy sheriffs' grievance says the sheriffs policy of non-cooperation with ICE "...recklessly compromises...

    At its very essence, The first duty of government is the protection of life, not its destruction. Abandon that, and you have abandoned all, wrote Thomas Jefferson. When the government not only fails to protect its citizens, but enables those who are here illegally to murder them, it can no longer be called a government. When 32-year-old Kate Steinle was murdered two weeks ago in the sanctuary city of San Francisco by illegal alien and multi-felon Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, people immediately began to ask how this could happen. How could a criminal, whose history includes seven felonies along with five...

    When Gov. Doug Ducey was stuck in a six-way Republican primary one year ago, he promised to fight back with every resource at my command to secure the states border with Mexico. Fencing, satellites, guardsmen, more police and prosecutors, Ducey said in a campaign ad. Well get this done. If Barack Obama wont do the job, Arizonans will.

    On Sept. 19, 2014, the five-day average of Antarctic sea ice extent exceeded 20 million square kilometers for the first time since 1979, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. The red line shows the average maximum extent from 1979-2014. Credits: NASA's Scientific Visualization Studio/Cindy Starr Sea ice surrounding Antarctica reached a new record high extent this year, covering more of the southern oceans than it has since scientists began a long-term satellite record to map sea ice extent in the late 1970s. The upward trend in the Antarctic, however, is only about a third of the...

    A federal health official dealing with the surge of illegal immigrants last year at the southern U.S. border ripped President Obama for the months-long crisis, calling him a "Marxist" and the worst pres we have ever had, according to newly released internal emails. The emails, obtained and published by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, show a June 9, 2014, exchange between Centers for Disease Control and Prevention logistics specialist George Roark and agency public health adviser William Adams. Roark begins by writing: Unreal, no country in the world would allow this. Adams responds: Well, in ten years or less,...

    by Graham Lee Brewer Published: June 24, 2015 A man involved in the collision that killed longtime Oklahoma sportscaster Bob Barry Jr. was returned to Mexico three times, a representative from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed Wednesday.

    The Obama administration has ordered agents to begin ignoring many of the illegal immigrants they encounter in local prisons and jails, as the president begins to implement a lesser-known part of his deportation amnesty program a move thats not sitting well with either side in the immigration debate. The move is a nod to sanctuary cities, who had begun to refuse to cooperate with federal authorities on immigration enforcement. After having court challenges, Mr. Obama bowed to those cities, counties and states and announced the changes as part of his November 2014 amnesty policy. Agents will still troll local...

    President Obama has claimed that prosecutorial discretion is the basis for his executive actions amounting to amnesty for illegal aliens. But the evidence is that no real discretion is being exercised.  Joel Gehrke of NRO has the story: One hundred twenty-one illegal immigrants now facing murder charges were previously released by federal officials from 2010 to 2014, despite President Obama’s previous assurances that his administration is focusing its resources on the deportation of violent criminals. The Obama administration released the figures to Congress in a May 28 letter. “Between FY 2010 and FY 2014, there were 121 unique criminal...
