    The road rage suspect who killed a sheriff’s deputy, wounded a police officer and died in a central Washington state shootout this week was living in the United States illegally, the federal government said Thursday. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said Juan Manuel Flores Del Toro, 29, was a citizen of Mexico who entered the United States in 2014 at Laredo, Texas, on a temporary agricultural worker visa. The agency had no record that Flores Del Toro left the U.S. or extended his visa after it expired.

    An MS-13 member who stabbed two women and tried to rape a 2-year-old girl during a five-hour criminal frenzy two years ago was sentenced Wednesday to 26 years to life in prison. Tommy Alvarado-Ventura, 33, pleaded guilty last month to a litany of charges in connection with the March 22, 2017 spree. He was arrested shortly thereafter. A Nassau County police official at the time described the case as "probably the most heinous criminal act” he’d seen in 28 years on the job. "This defendant sexually assaulted a helpless toddler and brutally stabbed and attempted to murder two women, including...

    It is not a crime for an illegal immigrant to use fake federal documents to obtain a legitimate state license, according to a remarkable ruling issued this week by an Obama-appointed judge in south Florida. The defendant, 38-year-old Rubman Ardon Chinchilla, was among 20 people arrested several months ago in a scheme that used bogus immigration documents in driver’s license applications. The man who masterminded the operation, a naturalized U.S. citizen from Cuba, has been charged with fraud. Chinchilla, a Honduran national, has lived illegally in the U.S. for decades, according to a local newspaper report, and has three American-born...

    Full title of article: Family to 'encourage deportation' for undocumented immigrant sentenced to 14 months for killing Raleigh man in hit-and-run RALEIGH (WTVD) -- The family of a Raleigh man killed in a crash in September said he wouldn't be dead if the man who hit him had not illegally entered the country. The man who hit Jamar Beach, 26, pleaded guilty Friday to hit-and-run causing death--it was the only criminal charge prosecutors said they could defend in court. The judge in the case handed down the maximum sentence of 20-33 months in prison, but Beach's family said it's just...
  • Support for Trump dwindles among ICE officers

    "ICE officers who endorsed President Trump in 2016 now say he has failed to follow through on his get-tough promises, saying catch-and-release of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. is not only still happening, but has gone into “overdrive.” Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers say they’re being roped into such mundane tasks as opening the doors on vans to release immigrants already caught by Border Patrol agents. That’s dragging the officers from their usual duties of nabbing fugitives, or scouring local prisons and jails for immigrant criminals who lived illegally in the U.S. ready to be deported. The shell game...

    Decriminalizing prostitution — an idea gaining momentum among some Democrats, including at least one 2020 presidential contender — may one day be traced back to the hookers plying their trade under the elevated train along New York City’s Roosevelt Avenue. That open-air market of prostitutes and johns in Queens, undeterred by the constant threat of arrest and incarceration, has been cited by New York state lawmakers mulling whether it’s time to wave the white flag in the war on the world’s oldest profession.

    The loss of two congressional seats and billions of dollars in federal funding are only two of the problems facing Illinois if it cannot get all of its residents to respond to the 2020 census. Although the official count does not start for another year, the federal government and state and local governments are ramping up their efforts to make the next census as accurate as possible. Activists, lawmakers and community leaders around the state, meanwhile, are fighting to address all the factors that might contribute to an undercount.

    Rep. Clay Higgins (R-La.) on Wednesday compared the influx of migrants at the southern border to the D-Day invasion from World War II. The Louisiana Republican sought to put the threat of illegal immigration into context during a House Homeland Security Committee hearing with Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen when he invoked the June 1944 Allied invasion of Western Europe. “Let me just put this in context for the American people,” Higgins said. “Perhaps the most famous invasion in the history of the world — D-Day — 73,000 American troops landed in the D-Day invasion. We have 76,103, according to...

    The U.S. has set a new record for the number of migrant families caught crossing its southern border over an entire year. It took just five months. From the start of the federal fiscal year in October through February, the Border Patrol arrested 136,150 people traveling as families for crossing the border illegally, according to data released Tuesday. The prior record for a 12-month period was 107,212, during the fiscal year that ended last September. The rapid acceleration is the latest illustration of how many parents and children are seeking asylum in the U.S., primarily to escape violence, poverty and...

    An illegal immigrant charged in the murder of Mollie Tibbetts, a University of Iowa student found dead in August, requested his trial to be moved to a more diverse county in the state so his jury pool has more minority representation. Cristhian Bahena Rivera’s attorneys filed the motion Friday, arguing that existing tensions and opinions in Poweshiek County — which is the area where the crime occurred, Tibbetts grew up and Rivera lived and worked at a dairy farm — will make it hard to have a “fair and impartial trial,” the Des Moines Register reported. The attorneys asked the...

    IREDELL COUNTY, N.C. — A massive drug operation with ties to a Mexican drug cartel resulted in the arrest of six immigrants in the country illegally. Six men are behind bars, accused of running an elaborate drug trafficking operation in Mecklenburg and Iredell counties. The man the suspects are tied to is the main rival of El Chapo's drug cartel. The operation was working under the Jalisco New Generation Cartel. The human rights group Justice in Mexico reported last year that the Jalisco New Generation Cartel started gaining power after El Chapo's arrest. Federal officials said more than 1,800 grams...

Whether he will or not, I can’t say.” “I applaud President Trump when he does those things that helps secure our border, that helps protect the Rule of Law. This legislation does not help secure our border, it makes things worse, in my judgement.”

    For the first time ever, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools has more than 20,000 immigrant students who need help learning English. The 21,145 English learners in CMS are by far the largest concentration in North Carolina. Wake County, the state’s biggest district, has only 14,540, and most of the state’s districts don’t even have 20,000 students. The growing numbers come with costs: CMS is spending more than $30 million this year on the department that serves those students, compared with just over $20 million five years ago. In June Mecklenburg County commissioners approved $1.4 million to add 20 teachers who specialize in English...
