    HUNTERDON COUNTY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) – A tiny parasite could become a big problem this year in New Jersey. It’s an exotic tick that’s never been seen before in the United States. It was first spotted on a sheep in Hunterdon County, and efforts to wipe it out have failed. New Jersey has always been home to different species of ticks – five to be exact. But a new variety of the bloodsucking bug is now in the mix. It’s the East Asian tick, sometimes called a longhorned or bush tick. Originally found in Asia, thousands of them are now in...

    Much of president’s agenda is riding on outcome of caseWhat the Supreme Court does with President Trump’s travel ban case, which reaches the justices this week, is likely to determine whether courts across the country give him the usual deference due a president and allow him leeway to pursue his immigration crackdown — or whether they join the anti-Trump resistance determined to thwart him at every turn. From battles in California, Illinois and Pennsylvania over sanctuary cities, to illegal immigrant teens gaining abortion rights, to the border wall, to Mr. Trump’s attempts to limit some paths to legal immigration and...

    President Trump said Monday he has “instructed” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen not to allow “large caravans of people” into the U.S. as a group of Central American migrants starts to reach the border, calling the situation a “disgrace.” “Despite the Democrat inspired laws on Sanctuary Cities and the Border being so bad and one sided, I have instructed the Secretary of Homeland Security not to let these large Caravans of people into our Country. It is a disgrace. We are the only Country in the World so naïve! WALL,” Trump tweeted early Monday. The president’s directive came as a...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday defended his decision last month to pardon five criminal illegal aliens facing deportation, saying he makes “no apologies.” ... Brown pardoned two Cambodian refugees - one of whom was convicted of domestic violence and the other for drug possession. He also pardoned Daniel Maher, who was convicted of kidnapping and robbery using a firearm; Sergio Mena, who was sentenced in 2003 for drug possession; and Acevedo Alaniz, who was served five months for vehicle theft. Trump criticized the move in a March 31 tweet, saying, “Governor Jerry ‘Moonbeam’ Brown pardoned 5 criminal illegal aliens...

    On Thursday afternoon, activist Alejandra Pablos - my friend - will stand up in court and wait for a judge to decide the fate of her freedom. Ale, as her friends call her, was taken into custody by ICE and has been detained for the last 42 days. Ale lost her green card and was put in line for deportation after a 2011 arrest and conviction on several charges including driving under the influence. She spent two years in Eloy Detention Center in Southern Arizona. This January, Ale, a dedicated reproductive justice and immigrant rights organizer, was leading chants at...

    A poll released by UC Berkeley’s Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society, a left-wing organization, found some shocking results in the far-left state of California, including a desire from a clear majority of 59 percent to “increase deportations” of illegal immigrants. California, which advertises itself as a progressive sanctuary state for illegal aliens, has been on the front-lines fighting against President Donald Trump’s push to finally enforce America’s immigration laws. From all of the reporting coming from our disgraced media, you would be led to believe that not only is all of California opposed to enforcing immigration law,...

    President Trump warned California Gov. Jerry Brown that he’ll cut off federal funding for the deployment of California’s National Guard if the governor insists that the troops “do nothing” instead of enforcing immigration laws. “Governor Jerry Brown announced he will deploy ‘up to 400 National Guard Troops’ to do nothing,” Mr. Trump tweeted. “The crime rate in California is high enough, and the Federal Government will not be paying for Governor Brown’s charade. We need border security and action, not words!” Mr. Brown mobilized 400 National Guard members Wednesday to fight gangs and smugglers as part of the president’s efforts...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown's visit to the nation's capital resulted in a war of words with Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins. Jenkins confronted the Democratic governor at his National Press Club event for his state's sanctuary city policies. The reporter had evidence to suggest the sanctuary status has endangered communities. Do critics have a point by suggesting sanctuary city laws "favor the rights of criminal illegal aliens over the rights and the safety of those communities," Jenkins asked . In Brown's defensive answer, he seemed to suggest that Fox News were the first ones to make such a claim....

    TAOS, New Mexico - The U.S. city of Albuquerque passed measures on Monday that make it harder for federal officials to deport illegal immigrants, a week after a federal judge blocked a Trump administration effort to withhold funding from cities that took such steps. Albuquerque’s majority-Democratic council voted 6-3 in favor of a measure to prevent federal immigration officials from entering city-operated areas, including a prisoner transport center, without a warrant. In a televised meeting, the council also barred city workers, including police, from collecting information on peoples’ immigration status and prohibited local tax dollars from being spent on federal...

She's an undocumented mother of five American children whose husband, Carlos Gudiel, was just deported back to Guatemala on Wednesday. Eyewitness News obtained video of him in his home country as he was tearfully reunited with his mother. "My husband is not a criminal," Rivera said, in Spanish. Rivera said her husband did cross the border illegally twice but he doesn't have a criminal background. It may be hard for people to understand her situation, she said, but all they ever wanted was a better life. The Harris County GOP...

During his lecture, titled “Legalities of Being,” Fifield-Perez said he struggled to retain his humanity in the eyes of those who only saw him as a DACA recipient. “I ceased to be my own person and became a statistic,” Fifield-Perez said. “My narrative didn’t matter to [the government.]” Through his work, Fifield-Perez said he wanted to share his experience as an undocumented citizen with others. Melanie Johnson, junior in criminology, said she pondered...

He then started a support group for fellow veterans deported to Mexico, worked to get them health care — and, last year, earned a pardon from California Gov. Jerry Brown for his crime. On Friday he’ll cross the border once again, arriving in San Diego, where he’ll be sworn in as a U.S. citizen. To his backers, it’s a long-overdue recognition for a man who devoted years of his life to his adopted...

    Undocumented immigrants without a criminal background are being deported in the Philadelphia region at greater rates than in other states, a report by Philly.com and ProPublica shows.

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Metro DACA students from the Kansas/Missouri Dream Alliance headed to Missouri’s capital Wednesday to lobby against a budget bill that would terminate in-state tuition rates for undocumented youth with DACA. “It was horrible. I ended up going to the dean’s office. It got to the point where I really wanted to continue school. I didn’t want to drop out or go to another college, but I wasn’t able to afford it,” said Zaid Consuegra, a dreamer from Mexico City. He came to Kansas City in 1999. He did not get in-state tuition for his schooling and...

    The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit challenging what it calls a pattern by President Donald Trump’s administration of detaining illegal immigrants seeking to legalize their status based on marriages to U.S. citizens. The proposed class action was filed late on Tuesday in federal court in Boston and alleges that immigration officials have been illegally separating families while a noncitizen spouse was seeking lawful immigration status. “These actions are not only inhumane but they are unlawful,” Adriana Lafaille, a lawyer with the ACLU of Massachusetts, said at a press conference. The lawsuit centers on regulations the U.S. Citizenship...
