    Schools have become the crucible for intimidation and recruitment into the Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, gang on Long Island and around the country. One Long Island mother, who wanted to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal from MS-13, said she and several other parents have taken their teenagers out of the local high school because they’ve become targets of the gang. Some children are being homeschooled and, in a few extreme cases, sent to stay with relatives out of the state. “I am scared to death,” the mother said. “It’s a crapshoot. I feel like we’re rolling the dice here,...

    An illegal immigration activist who became a poster-child for the open borders lobby is now facing deportation to Mexico. Activist Jessica Colotl has been notified by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) that her protected status under the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program had been revoked, according to FOX 5 Atlanta. Colotl’s attorney gave FOX 5 a document signed by officials with ICE which stated that her revoked DACA status was “Due to respondent’s criminal history,” citing that “she is an enforcement priority…” The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now requesting that an immigration judge deport...

    House to consider protecting immigration law evaders where IL's most vulnerable gather SPRINGFIELD - Illinois House members will be asked this week to make state-funded places where Illinois' most vulnerable citizens gather as the very same locations criminals will be able to find sanctuary from immigration authorities. SB 31, dubbed by supporters as the "Illinois Trust Act," passed the Illinois Senate last week along party lines, with all Democrats voting "Yes," and all Republicans voting "No," except Senate GOP Leader Christine Radogno, who voted "Present." Six Democrats did not vote. If the bill becomes law, tax-funded pre-schools, hospitals, nursing homes...

    Brooklyn and Baltimore prosecutors have instructed staff to consider alternative offenses and sentence modifications for illegal immigrants to protect them from possible deportation. Acting Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez said in a statement that his new policy aims to “prevent collateral consequences of convictions” for illegal immigrants. Gonzalez instructed his assistants to consider “alternative offenses the defendant can plead to as well as reasonable modifications to the sentence recommendation.” The alternative offense should be similar in level and length of sentence to that offered to a citizen defendant, but the charge may be different, Gonzalez said.

    By visiting Long Island last week, Attorney General Jeff Sessions brought national attention to a community besieged by gang violence. “I have a message for the gangs that target young people: We are targeting you. We are coming after you,” Sessions said at the federal courthouse in Central Islip, less than three miles from the park where four young men were found murdered two weeks earlier. The brutal manner in which the four youths, aged between 16 and 20, were killed “is consistent with the modus operandi of MS-13,” according to Suffolk County Police Commissioner Timothy Sini. MS-13, or Mara...

    CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y.—The air was thick with equal parts of hope and frustration at a community meeting in Central Islip on April 18, just a few blocks from where four young men were found murdered less than a week prior. Politicians, law enforcement, and hundreds of citizens turned out to voice their fears and concerns. Rep. Peter King (R–N.Y.) spoke of the MS-13 gang, which police say is suspected to be behind the murders. “MS-13 has to be crushed, it has to be defeated, it has to be destroyed,” King said. He was echoing the sentiment coming from the top...

    Tucker Carlson and Julissa Arce heartily debated the morality of President Trump’s proposed border wall on Fox News Thursday night. Arce, who came to the U.S. illegally before working her way up the corporate ladder at Goldman Sachs and gaining citizenship through marriage, characterized the wall as “a symbol of hate” toward immigrants, a point that The Daily Caller founder clearly took issue with.

    FOX Business ^ | April 19, 2017
    MS-13, a group that was started by Central American immigrants in Los Angeles in the 1980s, is known for its ruthless and violent tactics. Most of the founding members were from El Salvador and fled to the U.S. during the country’s civil war that lasted 12 years, from 1980-92. Since then the gang’s membership has ballooned to at least 10,000 members in the United States and more than 30,000 worldwide, according to the FBI and Treasury Department. “[MS-13] is one of the most dangerous and rapidly expanding criminal gangs in the world today,” Philip Holloway, a legal analyst and former...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Anti-Trump conservative billionaires Charles and David Koch are helping illegal immigrants in the U.S. obtain driver’s licenses, as well as preparing them for citizenship tests. A fluff piece by TIME Magazine spotlights the Koch Brothers’ LIBRE Initiative organization for its work being done to help illegal immigrants while President Trump and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have successfully increased immigration enforcement. “It is chaotic. People are very, very worried about their situation,” says Aguado. “One of the things that has been a positive thing through this stress that people have is that they’re more interested in becoming...

    Michigan’s capital city, Lansing, rapidly backtracked on designating itself as a sanctuary city after business leaders complained. The term “sanctuary city” is not an official term, but usually denotes cities and jurisdictions that shield illegal immigrants from federal immigration authorities. Lansing City Council members initially voted on April 3 to adopt a three-page resolution that touts its “welcoming environment for immigrants and refugees.” The resolution did not differentiate between legal and illegal immigrants—it grouped them together.

    The FBI added fugitive Walter Yovany Gomez to its Ten Most Wanted list in connection with the 2011 murder of his friend for associating with a rival gang in Plainfield, N.J. Gomez was attempting to become a fully-fledged member of the MS-13 gang by carrying out the gang-ordered killing, according to the FBI. “To become a full-fledged member of MS-13 you have to kill someone on behalf of your local clique, or crew,” said Special Agent Dan Brunner in a statement on April 12. “Only then can you get the MS-13 letters tattooed on your body.”

Senate bill (SB) 54 prevents local jails from holding inmates for up to 48 hours extra when ICE requests it for transfer—except those who have committed certain crimes, such as murder, robbery, rape, or kidnapping.

    A month ago, Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh wrote to federal authorities asking that they declare the state's courts, schools and hospitals off limits to immigration agents. Frosh, a Democrat, wrote that he was sending the letter in response to new immigration guidelines issued by the Trump administration that greatly expand the number of people considered a priority for removal from the country. However, all that was before AG Sessions surprise press conference last week in which he detailed the administration was stepping up its push back against cities that break the law by not enforcing actions against illegal...

    A North Carolina state representative is calling for the resignation of North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall after he found hundreds of cases of illegal immigrants improperly becoming notaries public. State law requires a notary public to “reside legally in the United States.” Marshall, a Democrat, has commissioned 320 individuals as notaries who are not either legal permanent residents or citizens, according to records provided to North Carolina state Rep. Chris Millis. The legislator received records from the North Carolina secretary of state’s office which showed 250 illegal immigrants who received amnesty have become notaries public. Another 72 other...
