    No American should be separated from their loved ones because of preventable crime committed by those illegally in our country. Every Senator and Congressman will have to make a choice: do they want to protect American citizens or do they want to protect criminal aliens?

    Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents arrested 27 foreign nationals in a day-long operation in West Michigan, federal agents announced Friday. ICE claimed that 21 of the 27 nationals had prior criminal convictions, according to MLive.com. Among those arrested were a Mexican national who had a prior conviction for assaulting a police officer. Others had convictions including larceny, assault and battery DUI, domestic violence, as well as retail and welfare fraud. Five of those arrested will face felony prosecutions for re-entering the country after being deported, which carries a 20-year sentence. “Operations like this one demonstrate ICE’s continued focus on...

    A Republican congressman plans to introduce a bill Monday that would threaten huge fines and prison time for elected officials accused of sheltering illegal immigrant criminals from deportation, in the wake of the not-guilty verdict in the Kate Steinle murder trial. Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita’s bill is one of the most aggressive pieces of legislation to date aimed at sanctuary city policies, going beyond the Justice Department’s threat to cut off grants to those jurisdictions. “Politicians don’t get to pick and choose what laws to comply with,” Rokita told Fox News. “Americans are dying because politicians sworn to uphold the...

    SEATTLE (AP) — A Mexican man who spoke with reporters about his longtime girlfriend's immigration arrest has now been detained himself, and he says agents told him it's because he was in the newspaper. Baltazar "Rosas" Aburto Gutierrez spoke with the local Chinook Observer as well as The Seattle Times after U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement detained his girlfriend in June. He was identified by only his nickname in the Observer, and not by name in the Times.

    The illegal immigrant who killed Kate Steinle in 2015 was found not guilty of her murder by a San Francisco jury today. Outrageous, right? Before the killing, Garcia Zarate had been released from a San Francisco jail despite a standing federal deportation order. He had been deported five times before. This made him a very effective villain for Trump’s border security campaign messages — proof that sanctuary city policies kill! — and it’s natural to be sympathetic about Steinle, who died in her father’s arms at the far too young age of 32. The trouble with a politically-charged case like...

    Washington Examiner ^ | Dec 1, 2017 | Paul Bedard
    Illegal immigration costs taxpayers in all 50 states a total of $89 billion, and California, where an illegal on Thursday was cleared of murdering Kate Steinle despite admitting to the shooting, pays the most at $23 billion . ... The costs cover added expenditures for education, welfare, law enforcement, and medical care. When federal costs are included, the price tag nationally soars to $135 billion a year. FAIR’s data also includes the offset of taxes paid by illegal immigrants, though the numbers are much lower. In the state and local column, they are $3.5 billion. Nationally they are $15 billion....

    A Nevada Republican congressman signed House Democrats' discharge petition to push a vote on a solution to save 800,000 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals beneficiaries from deportation, arguing that committee process hasn't produced an immigration solution for years on end. Rep. Mark Amodei (R-Nev.) announced that he had joined the effort as Congressional Hispanic Caucus Chairman Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-N.M.) said separately that Rep. Scott Taylor (R-Va.) has been gathering support from dozens of House GOPs on a letter asking Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to save DACA before the end of the year.

    Well, we have a verdict for Kate Steinle’s killer: not guilty. He admitted to killing her but claimed it was an accident. That claim, of course, changed several times over the course of this story. Whether it was a result of media incompetence, his own lies, or some combination of both, I cannot say. He was, however, convicted of being a felon in possession of a firearm. Supposedly he is to be deported. Again. After all, he already came back five times, why not a sixth? Either way, I’m not surprised. California is a Marxist paradise, after all.

    A Mexican man will be deported after he was found not guilty in the killing of Kate Steinle, whose death while out walking on a San Francisco pier reignited a national debate over immigration policy. Jurors acquitted Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, 45, of murder and involuntary manslaughter, as well as assault with a deadly weapon. They convicted him of being a felon in possession of a firearm. The undocumented immigrant faces up to three years in prison, but has already spent more than two years in jail awaiting trial and may get credit for time served. He has not been...

    CHAMBLEE, Ga. — Not many notice when the SUVs arrive. Around 5 a.m., when the immigration agents pull into the parking lot of the Chamblee Heights apartments, 16 miles from downtown Atlanta, only one person is on the lookout. Cristina Monteros catches sight of the cars with the telltale tinted windows from her small apartment near the front, where she runs a day care, and calls her downstairs neighbor: ICE is here. The neighbor dials another, who passes it on. It takes less than 15 minutes for everyone in the complex to hear about “la migra,” whereupon they shut their...

    One week after Hurricane Katrina made landfall in August 2005, President George W. Bush consulted with his team of crisis advisers and inundated the Gulf Coast with cheap, illegal alien labor. Bush’s August decision to lift the Davis-Bacon wage law made it very easy for contractors to hire cheap labor. Mike Chertoff, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), quickly suspended sanctions on the employers who did hire illegal aliens. The result was another flood – this time not of water, but of illegal aliens, 30,000 of which came to the Gulf Coast to take cleanup and blue-collar...

    'Doing better than Ronald Reagan' to cut rules! Under the Obama administration, the White House, the Department of Justice and other federal agencies repeatedly circumvented Congress by using guidance memos to create de facto regulations, changing laws without going through the review process. In less than a year, however, the Trump administration has dramatically scaled back government overreach, Merrill Matthews, a resident scholar with the Institute for Policy Innovation, told WND. “Guidance typically from the department means there is some question about how to do this, because of the way it was ambiguously written, so a federal agency would provide...

    It’s the deliberate dismantling of Western civilization in the attempt to remake it into a global Orwellian Socialist technocracy. It used to be that if your country fell under the Marxist bootheel, you could escape here, as my father-in-law did, and as many others have. It used to be that as it crept into America, you could leave the blue state for a red state. You could stay a step ahead of the Cultural Borg. Now, there’s really nowhere left to go. The Cultural Borg, meanwhile, continue marching on. And they are showing signs of adapting to Trump’s weaponry. I...

    A previously deported illegal immigrant gang member charged with attempted murder and kidnapping this month was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Ft. Collins, a northern Colorado sanctuary city that ousted a finalist for police chief over his support of immigration enforcement. Judicial Watch blew the scandal open in September and is embroiled in a public records saga with Ft. Collins officials for documents surrounding the selection process and abrupt elimination of a respected veteran law enforcement official with impressive credentials. Ft. Collins is trying to keep records secret by asserting that the “material is so candid or personal that public...

    A preschool that leases space from the Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder is shutting down at the end of the month after the church congregation voted to become a sanctuary for undocumented immigrants facing deportation. "It put us out of business," said Active Boulder Kids owner Kristen Argow Heaton. About 90 percent of the congregation that attended a church meeting on the matter last month voted to move forward with plans to outfit a portion of the building to provide living quarters for an immigrant taking sanctuary. Argow Heaton said that parents notified the church ahead of the vote that...

    The case of Rolando Martinez seems like an ideal scenario that gun control advocates would use to push their agenda. A crazed man with an “AR-style” rifle allegedly terrorized over a dozen people in Austin, Texas, shooting at several and hitting four. One of the victims, a 7 year-old-girl, is in critical condition.

    Rosa Maria Hernandez was already frightened when she sat in an ambulance Tuesday night, speeding toward a Texas hospital so that she could undergo emergency gall bladder surgery, according to her family’s attorney. The 10-year-old child was scared before the ambulance stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint — before federal immigration officers detained her for living in the country illegally.
