    A new assault rifle called the "Crusader" went on sale this week, bearing a Bible verse on the magazine to deter Islamic terrorists from using it, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations of Florida was swift to complain, reports Fox News. Manufactured by Spike’s Tactical in central Florida, the $1,395 AR-15 has a Bible verse etched into it that says “Blessed be the Lord my Rock, who trains my hands for war, my fingers for battle.” Etched on the other is a symbol of a Crusader's cross from the Middle Ages. The weapon's safety selector has three settings: Peace, War...

    A great brief history leading to the 14th Amendment including comments from the members of Congress at the time. But unfortunately "the intent of the Citizenship Clause was somewhat mixed, leaving the Supreme Court to determine its construction." However.."The Supreme Court has not directly addressed the question of whether the children of illegal immigrants are eligible for birthright citizenship under the Fourteenth Amendment. In INS v. Rios-Pineda (1985), the Court said in dicta, or language not directly part of the holding in the case, that children born in the United States to illegal immigrants are citizens. 47 The Court did...

The event was slated to be held in October at the GOP front-runner's Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles.

According to the syllabus for Selena Lester Breikss’ “Women & Popular Culture” class, students risk a failing grade if they use any common descriptors that Breikss considers “oppressive and hateful language.” The punishment for repeatedly using the banned words, Breikss warns, includes “but [is] not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for...

    President Obama and Donald Trump see immigration differently. The President’s aggressive executive action on immigration is still being litigated, and Mr. Trump proposes action of a different kind. In the meantime, tax credits and refunds for illegal immigrants have become controversial. Mr. Trump says illegal immigrants get $4.2 billion in tax credits. He can point to a 2011 audit by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. It confirms that individuals who are not authorized to work in the United States were paid $4.2 billion in refundable credits.

    This week the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that people here in the US illegally are subject to 2nd Amendment Rights. For legal citizens, some states will not allow the sale of a firearm to someone who does not LEGALLY reside in that state thus impinging on a LEGAL CITIZEN's 2nd amendment rights. How is it that the 7th found that an illegal alien, regardless of which state they reside in can purchase a firearm when a legal citizen has to first LEGALLY RESIDE in the state?

    Advocates for mass-migration are using skewed financial claims to smear Donald Trump’s popular border proposals, which actually would help the near-bankrupt Social Security and Medicare programs. For every illegal migrant household that leaves the United States under Trump’s plan, Americans would recoup nearly three-quarters of a million dollars ($719,350), according to 2010 data collected by Heritage scholar Robert Rector. But business interests want the migrants to stay. That’s because migrants help lower the cost of Americans’ wages, but also because the migrants spend their wages — plus taxpayer aid — at retail stories and rental agencies. For example, the American...

    Ever since Donald Trump, the mercurial businessman, media personality, and presidential candidate, proposed his immigration policy, centering on the mass deportation of up to 11 million human beings, reaction among conservatives has been decidedly mixed. Ann Coulter, for whom illegal immigration is the alpha and the omega of public policy, exalted that Trump could perform abortions in the White House, and she would not care. But Charles Krauthammer, writing in the National Review on Thursday, and George Will, in his latest column published Saturday, provided reality checks.

Instead of charging the group with hostage taking or kidnapping charges, prosecutors charged them with human smuggling. Federal authorities this week raided a house in the border city of Mission, where they arrested a group of illegal immigrants as well as Arthur Flores, a U.S citizen, and two illegal aliens from Mexico described as his henchmen. The two henchmen had been tasked with holding the immigrants under threats of violence, court records obtained by...

    Just a thought: instead of deporting the illegal immigrants, let's have them sign up for gov't assistance, then send Mexico the bill. We'll put Trump in charge of collection. Am only half-joking. We don't have the manpower to find and relocate all the illegals. And since a number of candidates/politicians are calling for 'self-deportation' maybe an idea like this (sending Mexico the bill) could be made to work. It is my understanding that many, if not most, of the illegal immigrants are here because the Mexican gov't is so corrupt, and living conditions are so dangerous, that many illegal immigrants...

Permethrin, part of the pyrethroid class of insecticides, has long been the go-to weapon against head lice, mosquitoes, bedbugs and other insects.

Particularly vocal were those Republicans who think that an amorphous, make-believe category comprising “Hispanics” or “Latinos” will vote Republican if only Republican meanies like Trump would stop insulting them by complaining about illegal aliens. As usual, willful ignorance or blindness about the costs of illegal immigration underwrites these dubious ideas.

    But he said the country should take a different approach with "the other ones" — i.e., undocumented immigrants who are already in the country who have "done a good job." "I'm a very big believer in merit system," Trump said. "I have to tell you ... some of these people have been here, they've done a good job. You know, in some cases, sadly, they've been living under the shadows, etc., etc. We have to do something. So whether it's merit or whether it's whatever, but I'm a believer in the merit system. If somebody's been outstanding, we try and...

    Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley took his pro-immigration stance to a new level Friday by declaring citizenship "a human right." O'Malley, who has long been an advocate for illegal immigrant rights, has made amnesty a centerpiece of his campaign since he declared two months ago. His comments come in response to Texas health officials asking a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit by immigrant parents who were denied birth certificates for their U.S.-born children. "Denying birth certificates to U.S. citizens is not only outrageous, it's unconstitutional," O'Malley said in a statement on Friday. "The 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution...
  • The Moral Imperative of Open Borders Trumps (Pun Intended) Immigrant Crime Rates (barf alert)

    Many in the U.S. are currently focused on the amount of crime committed by immigrants in the country. This is due to remarks made by presidential contender Donald Trump in June and a murder allegedly committed by an undocumented immigrant in San Francisco in July. Mr. Trump suggested that many Mexican immigrants are criminals. In this post I argue that even if it were true that immigrants would increase crime rates in America, open borders would still be justified. In response to Mr. Trump’s remarks and the San Francisco murder, both The Washington Post and The New York Times have...

    RIO GRANDE CITY, Texas – When then-Texas Gov. Rick Perry deployed a battalion of the state’s National Guard troops here last August, he called them the “tip of the spear” against Mexican cartels that trafficked dope and illegal immigrants. Critics, especially here in the Rio Grande Valley, derided Perry’s decision as expensive political theater that “militarized” the border and antagonized Mexico. Perry’s supporters defended the move as a long overdue “surge” of police and soldiers against an influx of tens of thousands of undocumented and unescorted juveniles, mostly from Central America, that would fill gaps in federal border security. What’s...

They sit there and participate in it and don’t even have enough decency to just sit there and look at us.”

    Despite our unprecedentedly generous legal immigration system, the American people are constantly lectured about the need to grant more benefits to illegal immigrants. Illegal immigrants likely have more outside political capital than any other groups per capita in this country. Their voices are always heard, even though they have no right to be in this country to begin with. Yet, few politicians ever give voice to the people for whom they are sworn to protect – American citizens – who suffer from the infinite cost of illegal immigration. This represents one of the most immoral dichotomies of our time –...

    A convicted sex offender charged last week with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl in Santa Clarita is in the country illegally and had recently been released on bail from immigration custody, according to federal authorities.. Keane Dean, 26, a citizen of the Philippines, was released in April on $10,000 bond so he could be free while he contested his immigration case. He had been targeted for deportation because of his criminal record. The 14-year-old girl, who was found in Dean's garage, told investigators that Dean befriended her at a grocery store the previous day, according to the Los Angeles County...

    EDINBURG, Texas – When it comes to corrupt public officials aiding the smugglers of drugs and illegal immigrants, this is the dirtiest town, in the most crooked county, in the most bribable state along the U.S.-Mexico border, court records show. Federal prosecutors convicted 206 defendants on public corruption charges in the border counties of Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California in 2013 and 2014 — 52 people who offered bribes, and 154 local, county, state and federal employees who pocketed those or smuggled people or narcotics. Texas had 166 convictions, 34 in Hidalgo County alone, with a dozen cases linked...

    The House will take up a bill this week blocking funding for so-called "sanctuary cities" that resist turning over immigrants to federal authorities. The move follows the shooting death of a woman in San Francisco this month, allegedly by an immigrant with a criminal record and without legal status.

    Democratic Rep. Alan Grayson’s decision to partake in an interview about his Senate candidacy may have violated congressional ethics rules, according to experts on the matter. On the morning Grayson announced that he would enter the Florida Democratic primary for Senate, the Orlando congressman conducted a campaign-related interview from a computer in his congressional office. The online video interview, which aired July 9 on Huffington Post Live, focused on Grayson’s decision to enter the Florida Senate race. Engaging in campaign activity—including interviews—within an official office is prohibited, according to former in-house counsel and ethics adviser to senior members of House...
