  • Has anyone known of anybody being deported?

    Has anyone known of anybody being deported? In all my time in CA I have never heard of anyone being deported other than for a criminal offense or after having served time for a criminal offense. Even when stopped for misdemeanor offenses, they are always let go. I have heard of people returning home to Mexico to visit and being unable to get back across the border, but I have never heard of an otherwise law abiding illegal being deported. You would think if people were being ripped from their homes and being deported, as the Dems make it seem,...

    What if the illegals left? Somebody really did their homework on this one. Best on the subject to present date. What if 20 Million Illegal Aliens Vacated America? I, Tina Griego, journalist for the Denver Rocky Mountain News wrote a column titled, "Mexican Visitor's Lament." I interviewed Mexican journalist Evangelina Hernandez while visiting Denver last week. Hernandez said, "Illegal aliens pay rent, buy groceries, buy clothes. What happens to your country's economy if 20 million people go away?" Hmmm, I thought, what would happen? So I did my due diligence, buried my nose as a reporter into the FACTS I...

    Obama will keep his walls and open our borders. For some Americans this will mean death from disease and at the hands of illegal-alien criminals, but Obama doesn't care A well known phenomenon in the animal kingdom is that when taking over a new pride, a lion will sometimes kill all the cubs. We don’t know exactly what kind of feeling drives him in this bloody act, but there’s obviously a lack of attachment. Suffice it to say the problem can be summed up thus: it’s not his family. America’s pride is falling. And few things illustrate this better than...

    Few were as excited about Election Day as Moises Herrera. He did not run for office. He cannot even vote. But reaching Tuesday’s election, he hopes, will set in motion actions that will allow him to stay in the country. “It’s the great hope,” Herrera, a 36-year-old father of four, said in an interview on Election Day, days after immigration officials released him. “There are many, many people in that jail, and they are waiting for that day.” In Massachusetts, Herrera was at constant risk of deportation. In 2011, after a traffic stop in Everett, he was jailed and deported,...

    Marcelo Marquez allegedly shot and killed a Sacramento County Sheriff's Deputy and a Placer County Sheriff's Deputy, and also allegedly shot and wounded a second Placer County deputy and a civilian on Friday. On Saturday, authorities revealed that the suspect -- real name, Luis Enrique Monroy-Bracamonte -- had already been deported twice from the United States. According to Sacramento's KCRA, he was "sent back in to Mexico in 1997 and again in 2001." The 1997 deportation was the result of "conviction in Arizona...on charges of possession of narcotics for sale." He was arrested stateside in 2001 as well.

Speaking before the mostly Latino crowd, the President actually said his best definition of an American is someone who enters this country illegally and leaches off the hard work of others. Obama got the crowd warmed up by speaking a little Spanish and telling them he rode to the event with two illegal aliens in his limo. Amid the current Secret Service scandal, you have to wonder how illegal aliens get vetted so they can party...

He arrived illegally in the United States in 2000, left in 2004 to visit his widowed father in Puebla, Mexico, and was caught coming back through Arizona and deported. He sneaked back in that year to rejoin Bautista and the daughter who was then their only child.

    Real Christian love is making responsible, wise and character-driven decisions with the best interest of others at heart; not embracing lawlessness or surrendering to evil. Insidiously, Obama is using beautiful needy illegal alien kids as perfect Trojan Horses to continue his fundamental transformation of America for decades. A Hudson Institute study shows that illegals granted amnesty by Obama are far less inclined to assimilate; embrace English, the concept of American Exceptionalism and respect our Constitution. The study also shows that illegals granted a “get in America free” pass from Obama do not view America as being better than other countries....

    Recently embroiled in an underage prostitute scandal and a number of corruption schemes, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee—New Jersey Democrat Robert Menendez—is again under federal investigation for helping a pair of South American fugitives whose relatives donated big bucks to the senator. It’s like a never-ending saga of political corruption and cronyism. In the last year alone, Menendez has been implicated in a number of serious crimes—including reported escapades with underage hookers in the Dominican Republic—that have simply fizzled away and left him virtually unscathed. We’ll get into those later, but first let’s delve into the Menendez...

    As the U.S. Chamber of Commerce renews their efforts to pass the Senate’s stalled immigration overhaul that includes legalizing millions of illegal aliens, the U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) continues its history of trying to kick out taxpaying, crime-free, professional legal immigrants—including earthquake engineers stuck in the broken system. In the court proceeding at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Pasadena, California, Patricia Peters v. Janet Napolitano, No: 10-55889, the panel of three judges appeared to be in disbelief as to why the government has been trying to deport Peters. The case was originally filed against President George...

    Sergio Garcia, the undocumented attorney in whose favor the California Supreme Court ruled when he tried to obtain his professional license, told Efe that his aspirations include becoming governor of the Golden State. "Insofar as it's legally possible for me, I'm thinking of launching a political campaign with the aim of eventually, perhaps many years from now, running for governor," he said. In a unanimous decision on Jan. 2, the state Supreme Court ruled in favor of a motion presented by the Committee of Bar Examiners of the State Bar of California guaranteeing that Garcia's license would be expedited.

    The California Supreme Court ruled Thursday that an illegal immigrant can join the bar and begin to practice law in that state, granting a major symbolic victory to immigrant rights advocates who say it’s a step on the path to equal treatment in employment law. Rebuffing the Obama administration’s arguments, the justices unanimously decided in favor of Sergio C. Garcia, an illegal immigrant who was twice brought across the border illegally by his parents, eventually earned a law degree from a California school and has been trying to join the bar for years. Chief Justice Tani Cantil-Sakauye said state legislation...

    The UC Berkeley student government has banned the term “illegal immigrant” from its discourse, deeming the phrase racist, offensive, unfair and derogatory. In an unanimous vote, student senators passed a resolution that stated the word “illegal” is “racially charged,” “dehumanizes” people, and contributes to “punitive and discriminatory actions aimed primarily at immigrants and communities of color.” The “resolution in support of drop the I-word campaign” was approved 18 to 0 with one abstention on Oct. 30, according to a copy of the meeting’s minutes obtained by The College Fix. Its approval marks at least the second time this semester that...

    Two little girls, step sisters, were playing in a pile of leaves in their yard when, from seemingly out of nowhere, a vehicle came careening through, hitting and killing them both. The vehicle then fled as quickly as it had come. The two little girls were 6-year-old Anna Dieter-Eckerdt and 11-year-old Abigail Robinson. The driver of the vehicle who ran them down and stopped their lives tragically short was 18 year old Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros, an immigrant in the U.S. illegally. Garcia-Cisneros’ boyfriend, Mario Echeverria, also 18, was in the vehicle at the time of the murder, and he suggested the...

    An intoxicated, wrong-way driver who pleaded guilty to the killing in April of a Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper carrier in South Hill had been convicted of DUI a year earlier and had never been licensed to drive in Virginia. Santos Gabriel-Tomas, 30, an immigrant from Guatemala in the country illegally, was convicted in March 2012 of driving under the influence of alcohol in neighboring Lunenburg County. He had never acquired a license to drive, but a judge in the earlier case revoked his privileges to obtain a license for 12 months as part of his punishment, Mecklenburg County Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney...
