    Allies to President Trump are furious with acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan for how they say he threw his boss and department officials under the bus in a recent interview. “At a time when President Trump is facing the most partisan attacks of his administration, one of his own Cabinet-level officials aired his grievances with the president in the court of public opinion,” said Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council. “Regardless of your readers' political leanings: Left, right, or in the middle, the airing of grievances by a Cabinet-level official must be considered dishonest and unforgivable.”...

    They were right. On a trip to California late in the week, Mr. Trump turned to Mr. McAleenan, the Customs and Border Protection chief, with a new idea: He wanted him to stop letting migrants cross the border at all, with no exceptions. If you get into any trouble for it, Mr. Trump told him, I’ll pardon you. … After the president left the room, Mr. McAleenan told the agents to ignore the president. You absolutely do not have the authority to stop processing migrants altogether, he warned.
  • Statement from the Press Secretary (court stops gov from enforcing expedited illegal alien removal)

    Once again, a single district judge has suspended application of Federal law nationwide—removing whole classes of illegal aliens from legal accountability. In 1996, Congress passed a law explicitly and unambiguously authorizing expedited removal of illegal aliens within two years of their arrival in this country—a law currently codified in 8 U.S.C. § 1225(b)(1)(A)(iii). While previous administrations severely curtailed application of this law, the Trump Administration has used this critical tool to the full extent that Congress authorized to respond to the unprecedented crisis in our immigration system and at our southern border. That tool is vital to addressing the many...

    Now that socialist Bill de Blasio is washed out of the Democratic presidential election primaries, he's back to running New York City, doing the Sandinista thing , and banning free speech. The New York Post has identified his latest bid to make New York Cuba : It’s now against the law in New York City to threaten someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an “illegal alien” when motivated by hate. The restrictions — violations of which are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense — are outlined in a 29-page directive released...

    The 18-year-old accused of kidnapping a Nashville high school student and beating him for refusing to join a gang had previously been deported according to the Department of Justice. U.S. Attorney Don Cochran for the Middle District of Tennessee reports Franklin Pineda-Caceres will face federal charges for entering the country illegally after being deported in 2018. According to the charging documents, Pineda-Caceres was arrested in Nashville in October 2017 on drug charges. Agents with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) determined he had illegally entered the country in 2014 and an order for his removal was issued in 2016.

    Undocumented immigrant surrenders to FBI ANTIOCH, Tenn.

The call came in around 7 a.m. Thursday in the parking lot near Food Lion on Richards Road. Bryan Cox of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the incident happened during a traffic stop. FBI officials said DHS officers were trying to stop an undocumented immigrant regarding immigration law violations. Cox said the man tried to flee in a white box truck and drove towards the...

    Following the overturned state firearm conviction of illegal immigrant Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, U.S. Attorney David Anderson said Wednesday the federal government plans to proceed with federal gun charges in the case of Kate Steinle, during an interview on "Fox & Friends." Zarate, who was previously deported five times, was charged by the state of California with the murder of Steinle in 2015 and was acquitted on charges of first-degree murder, second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was, however, convicted of felony possession of a firearm, and has maintained the stolen gun he used had discharged...

    A California state appeals court Friday overturned the lone conviction against an undocumented immigrant who shot and killed Kate Steinle on the San Francisco waterfront in 2015, a case which drew national attention and became a flashpoint in the debate over illegal immigration. Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, who was in the U.S. illegally had been deported to his native Mexico five times, was acquitted in November 2017 of first and second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was convicted of one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. On Friday, the 1st District Court...

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Eight months after he sought sanctuary from a Colorado Springs church to avoid deportation, Miguel Ramirez Valiente stands accused of careless driving with a revoked license in a crash that claimed the life of a father of five. Now, those who know Ramirez Valiente say he never should have been driving. "It took people saying, 'You need to say something about this to get that family help and justice,' and that’s when we made the call," said a close acquaintance of Ramirez Valiente, who asked to have her identity protected for her safety. "My heart broke...

City of South Bend (No. 71C01-1908-Ml-000389)). On December 16, 2016, the South Bend Tribune reported that, “A nonprofit Latino advocacy group … unveiled a new identification card it hopes will make life easier for undocumented immigrants who live...

    More than 2,000 migrants who were in the United States illegally were targeted in widely publicized raids that unfolded across the country last week. But figures the government provided to The New York Times on Monday show that just 35 people were detained in the operation. ... The arrests of the nearly three dozen migrants — 17 of whom were members of families that crossed the border together and 18 of whom were so-called collateral apprehensions of undocumented people — were among more than 900 that the immigration authorities have made since mid-May, Mr. Albence said. From May 13 through...
  • Judicial Watch: Illegal Aliens Released from Local Custody Commit More Crimes

    Judicial Watch ^ | July 16, 2019
    Following a Judicial Watch lawsuit, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has reinstated a reporting system that informs the public about illegal immigrants who commit crimes after being released from state or local custody. The offenders are shielded by sanctuary policies that ban local law enforcement from honoring Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainers placed on illegal aliens who have been arrested on local criminal charges. If the detainer is honored ICE takes custody and deports the criminal rather than release him or her back into the community. When law enforcement agencies fail to honor immigration detainers and release serious...
  • Uh-Oh, Joe! Democratic Rivals Catch On To The Fact You And Obama Deported Millions Of Illegal Aliens

    Poor Joe Biden. The career politician simply cannot catch a break from progressives on the 2020 Democratic primary presidential campaign trail. The latest thorn in Biden's side stems from his years serving under his "best friend" President Barack Obama. It is somewhat of an odd fact, but President Trump's immediate predecessor actually deported more individuals than he has so far at this point in office. Sadly, for Biden however, the progressives are now calling for what is tantamount to open borders. Thus they are turning even on the former Messiah of the Democratic Party due to his enforcement of immigration...
  • Here’s Why Democrats Want Illegal Immigrants Counted In The 2020 Census

    The real reason why Democrats and their open-border allies on the left oppose a citizenship question in the census is that they have everything to lose if illegal immigrants refuse to participate. Look at California. It is just one of several states that have more representatives in Congress and more votes in the Electoral College because of illegal immigrants — at the expense of other states. This was a point Thomas Homan, the former Immigration and Customers Enforcement acting director, made last week on the Fox Business Channel. “Of course, the Democrats don’t want [that] question added to the census...

    It's official. Democratic Party Chair Tom Perez confirms the Party fully endorses free health care for illegal immigrants. That puts illegals ahead of veterans struggling to qualify for civilian care, middle-class working stiffs priced out of Obamacare, and baby boomers facing the likelihood of Medicare cuts. At last Thursday's Democratic presidential debate, all 10 candidates on the stage flung up their hands when asked whether they'd cover illegal aliens. Not one of the debate moderators went on to ask the obvious: How much will it cost, and who will pay for it? Why spoil a Kumbaya moment? The costs would...

    Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-TX) must have missed the memo that he's running for President of the United States. O'Rourke, for whatever reason, is campaigning in Mexico. Again, did he not know he's running for President of the United States and not President of Mexico?According to the Associated Press, O'Rourke plants to head to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico to meet with so-called asylum seekers who must wait in Mexico while their application is processed. Ciudad Juarez sits right across the Rio Grande River from El Paso, O'Rourke's hometown. The goal of the trip, according to O'Rourke's campaign, is to meet with “individuals and families directly impacted...

    Illegal Alien Gets Four Years in Prison for Killing Connecticut Man An illegal alien has been sentenced to just four years in prison after hitting and killing a Connecticut man last year and then fleeing the scene. Luis Lala, a 28-year-old illegal alien, was sentenced this week to four years in prison, according to the New Haven Register, after he hit and killed 37-year-old Bobby “Sunny Ray” Pinkston in June 2018 while allegedly driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. “No amount of jail time will bring my brother back,” Pinkston’s brother told WTNH. According to prosecutors, Lala hit...

    When last we checked in on suspended Judge Shelley Richmond Joseph, she was in considerable hot water. Having allegedly conspired with as many as five people to orchestrate the escape of a criminal illegal alien from her courtroom, she was arrested and prosecutors didn’t seem to be in the mood to let her off lightly. The charges she’s facing could carry decades of jail time, not to mention the end of her judicial career. But with a bit more time to think about it, the US Attorney handling the case appeared to have a change of heart. He decided to...
