    Shortened title. Full title: ‘Wrong’: Former Acting ICE Director Slams ‘Embarrassment’ Ocasio-Cortez After She Targets ICE and Trump Newly sworn-in Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) bashed President Donald Trump after he made his argument on why building the southern border wall is necessary for border security, but a former acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement director swiped back at the congresswoman’s criticism. Appearing on MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show” late Tuesday, the Democratic darling called the president’s push for the border wall a “fantasy,” as IJR Red reported. The New York representative went on to say that immigrants — she only noted women...
  • Ocasio-Cortez Asks: Why Are We Funding ICE At All?

    Why are we funding an agency that had a child die in its custody on Christmas Eve, she asks?Except that was Customs and Border Protection, not ICE. And to hear AOC tell it, you’d think the child had died from official neglect of his illness, if not outright murder. He was taken to the hospital twice by CBP, having been released the first time by doctors with a prescription for nothing more serious than an antibiotic and ibuprofen. The agency didn’t leave him gasping on a cot in a corner somewhere.But all of this is beside the point. ICE,...

    Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez used her appearance on MSNBC — following President Donald Trump’s Oval Office address on Tuesday night — to demand the president explain why ICE shouldn’t be abolished. Ocasio-Cortez began, “No one should feel unsafe in the United States of America. And that includes our amazing and beautiful and productive immigrant community and moreover, the one thing the president has not talked about is the fact he has systematically engaged in the violation of international human rights borders — human rights on our border.” During the president’s speech, he explained why he felt the border wall was...

    A multi-vehicle crash last week that claimed the life of the son of a Knoxville, Tennessee fire department captain was the result of a “chain reaction” begun by an illegal immigrant driving in the wrong lane, investigators said. Pierce Kennedy Corcoran, 22, the son of Knoxville Fire Department spokesperson Captain D.J. Corcoran, was driving a Honda Civic south on Knoxville’s Chapman Highway the evening of December 30 when a Chevrolet pickup truck driven by Franco Cambrany Francisco-Eduardo reportedly veered into their lane and struck the vehicle. ... 44-year-old Franco Cambrany Francisco-Eduardo, an illegal immigrant, was arrested and charged with criminally...

    The Grand Canyon is a gigantic geological library, with rocky layers that tell much of the story of Earth’s history. Curiously though, a sizeable layer representing anywhere from 250 million years to 1.2 billion years is missing. Known as the Great Unconformity, this massive temporal gap can be found not just in this famous crevasse, but in places all over the world. In one layer, you have the Cambrian period, which started roughly 540 million years ago and left behind sedimentary rocks packed with the fossils of complex, multicellular life. Directly below, you have fossil-free crystalline basement rock, which formed...

    PHOENIX – The steady flow of asylum seekers through Valley houses of worship continued Friday afternoon when U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement dropped off two busloads of migrants at a Phoenix church. A day earlier, ICE dropped off around 50 men with children at a Phoenix Greyhound bus station because the churches were unable to take them. “Some pastors in some churches … they wanted to take a break for a week, for two weeks, because it’s overwhelming,” Schwartz said. ICE didn’t respond to a request for comment beyond an email saying the agency’s public affairs officers aren’t allowed to...

    Former acting ICE Director Tom Homan on Wednesday blasted House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi for calling a border wall ineffective and accusing President Trump of “fear mongering” with the illegal immigration issue. “Every place a wall or barrier has been built, it has resulted in decreased illegal immigration, decreased drug smuggling. One hundred percent of the time, it has proven effective,” Mr. Homan said on Fox News, where he is a contributor. “Look at the rest of the data on the border, where arrests of MS-13 [gang] this year are up 118 percent, the seizures of guns — for God’s...

    "After word spread about a renewed push by the Department of Homeland Security to get Vietnam to accept more deportees, some people saw it as a mistake by the Trump administration given the GOP’s fading strength in Orange County and the historical support that the Republican Party has gotten from Vietnamese Americans. But in a community where many older residents oppose undocumented immigration and younger ones tend to lean left politically, the controversy is just the latest to underscore the generational divide among those of Vietnamese descent." "More than 8,000 Vietnamese residents in the U.S. who escaped their homeland but...

    It is a picture perfect Christmas card image from another planet. The European Space Agency's Mars Express has returned an incredible new series of images showing a giant crater on the red planet. It shows the Korolev crater, a 50 mile (82 km) wide feature in in the northern lowlands of Mars. Just south of a large patch of dune-filled terrain that encircles part of the planet's northern polar cap (known as Olympia Undae), ESA says it is 'an especially well-preserved example of a martian crater.' It is filled not by snow but ice, with its center hosting a mound...

Tulare County Sheriff Mike Boudreaux said he personally was “very frustrated” with the law following a day-long “reign of terror” that ended with the death of Gustavo Garcia, 36, an illegal immigrant who had twice been deported from the U.S., Fox News reported, citing local California media.

    The San Francisco Chronicle reported the progress: The Trump administration has arrested 170 undocumented immigrants who came forward to try to take migrant children out of government custody, federal officials said Monday. Under President Barack Obama, the federal agencies quietly cooperated with the many illegals who contracted with cartel-overseen smugglers to bring their Central American youths and children up to the U.S. border. As required by law, the youths and children were accepted from the coyotes by the border patrol and then relayed to shelters run by the Department of Health and Human Sevices. Obama’s HHS then completed the delivery...

    You Tube -- Resisting immigration? Maybe it's just in our natureImmigration officials last week arrested 105 people in New Jersey suspected of being in the country illegally, including four people with international criminal warrants. This came the same week that state officials announced new rules on how local police will handle immigration matters.ICE said the arrests had been planned before state Attorney General Gurbir Grewal released his directive, which the federal agency has criticized. The policy prevents police from inquiring about a person's immigration status unless it is relevant to an investigation. Jails also will not be allowed to detain...
