    AUSTIN, TX — The group of state lawmakers overseeing how much taxpayer money is being spent on the border is set to meet Tuesday at the state Capitol. “I don’t like that the state of Texas is having to put any extra dollars toward this effort that is clearly the responsibility of the federal government,” said state representative and committee chair Dennis Bonnen, R-Angleton. “Are these immigrant children going to be enrolled in schools in Texas?” asked Gene Acuna, director of communications for the Texas Education Agency. The agency has not received any answers from the federal government.

    The UK is to halve to three months the time EU migrants without realistic job prospects can claim benefits. David Cameron said the "magnetic pull" of UK benefits had to be addressed so people came for the right reasons and the rules "put Britain first". The prime minister also warned people in the UK illegally: "We will find you, we will send you home." Labour said the PM's rhetoric masked a record of "failure" on immigration and "firm action" was needed. Ministers have been reluctant to say how many people are likely to be affected by benefit curbs, although BBC...

    SNIP Under a policy that’s been in effect for several years, ICE focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and – in some cases -- those caught in the act of crossing the border. The agency prioritizes deportation for felons, repeat offenders, gang members and others with a serious criminal record. SNIP This is why illegal immigrant activists can protest outside the White House without worrying too much about ICE. They did so at lunchtime on Monday, marching across Lafayette Park to the White House and advocating a reprieve for illegal immigrant parents who brought their children to the U.S. –...

    A single group of illegal aliens entering Texas from Mexico over the weekend included foreign nationals from Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). The group crossed into the Rio Grande Valley sector from Tamaulipas, Mexico. “One group of our agents apprehended individuals from Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka,” said Albert Spratte, a spokesman for Local 3307 of the NBPC. “Everyone in this group was an adult male. They entered on Saturday, July 26, 2014. Our agents apprehended them, they did not turn themselves in. They were trying to sneak in.

    In Massachusetts and across the country, residents have balked at the prospect of hundreds of immigrant children coming to their towns, angry that public money is being spent on illegal immigrants and worried that the influx would burden local schools and social services. Yet the federal government insists the impact would be minimal, and many immigration lawyers and advocates describe the emergency shelters established in other states as worlds apart, secure, secluded facilities that quietly serve as way stations for thousands of young migrants. The US Department of Health and Human Services, which operates the shelters, says it “pays for...

He was not the last person to see those migrating here as a terrifying source of contamination. A couple of weeks ago, the city council of League City, Texas, passed a resolution expressing worry that "many illegal aliens suffering from diseases endemic in their countries of origin are being released into our communities."...

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The flood of Central American women and children crossing the border into the U.S. is not a refugee crisis, or a border crisis, it's an humanitarian crisis, created by the actions of U.S. citizens and inaction of their elected leaders. While children have walked hundreds of miles, risking violence along the way as they try to escape it, Congress has hardly moved a foot on U.S. immigration reform and not at all on gun control. How many of the politicians ranting about the children crossing the border have ever lifted a finger to restrict the free-low of...

    Forcing Utah drivers to prove their citizenship and identity for a license may have seemed like torture at times during the past five years, initially causing lines with waits that averaged more than three hours. But it has brought some results expected by lawmakers during heated immigration debates. Since the program started in 2010, the state found that 5,923 undocumented immigrants illegally had full driver licenses, obtained largely through use of Social Security numbers they should not have had. "We knew there were a handful of people out there who were undocumented but had a Social Security number, so they...

Protesters and politicians lingering after the rally expressed their anger over the plan to bring these children into a state that they believe is ill-equipped to support its own children, homeless people, and veterans. “The state can’t take care of the children in its own care, yet these immigrants are coming in and skipping the line,” said Mark Fisher, a Tea Party-backed gubernatorial candidate seeking the Republican nomination.

    Remember when former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, the consummate “moderate Republican,” shocked everyone by calling immigration an “act of love?” It looks like he’s changed his mind. On Thursday, he called for nearly all of the 50,000-plus immigrants in limbo on our Southwest border to be sent home. That is, “except for those deserving few who may demonstrate a true case for asylum.” Deserving few? Someone should ask Bush which of the children fleeing impoverished and violent countries (where they have a 1 in 15 chance of being murdered) like Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras “deserve” to be sent home....

In the region from which child migrants are fleeing to the US, personal security is largely a question of what you can afford to pay. El Salvador has, by one estimate, 25,000 private guards in a country with 20,000 police officers. In Honduras, which boasts the highest murder rate in the world and has seen the largest exodus of young people to the American border this year, guards outnumber cops five to one.

    MANVEL, Texas -- It's a small rural town stuck in a county that just made it clear undocumented children aren't welcome here, but the possibility they could be moving in to the Shiloh Treatment Center, an older facility along Bahler Avenue in Manvel is very real. "They're trying to squeeze them in anywhere they can," said Manvel resident Brian Priest. We searched federal records and found Shiloh’s received a little over $5 million in grant money. That money is coming from the US Office of Refugee Resettlement. That's the same group in charge of placing thousands of undocumented children crossing...

    GOOGLE TRANSLATE: Univision decided to fulfill a single information function, commit and take a stand to defend the children of the border, those who come looking for a dream or reecontrarse with his parents in the United States and were arrested.

I guarantee that none of these...

    Via RCP, it’s Jorge Ramos, a guy so deep in the tank for illegal immigration that even other members of America’s pro-amnesty media are known to grumble about it. The most revealing thing about this clip is how little his argument depends on the particular hardships being suffered by kids in Central America. They face gangs, drugs, and violence if they’re sent back, he allows, but there’s no sense that this is some unique crisis requiring a more forgiving policy than might otherwise be advisable. He’s making a straight-up argument, essentially, that if a kid makes it across the border,...

    “The purpose of adding more resources on the ground is not to address the women and children, it’s to address the growing reality that a lot of people coming across the border are here for criminal purposes,” Abbott, the GOP gubernatorial hopeful, told Fox News on Monday. “They’re killing, they’re raping, they’re robbing, they’re doing all kinds of harsh criminal activity.” Abbott said that women and children have been sexually assaulted by people who have come across the border.

He said these were "hardened criminals, gang members, and other criminals that we identified as being in Texas illegally." "We charged them with 447,000 crimes, a half-million crimes in four years, just in Texas, including...

    As Obama moves toward allowing millions of undocumented people to stay in the U.S., Republicans face a defining choice.Inflammatory as it's been, the debate over unaccompanied Central American children crossing the U.S. border is only the warm-up for an approaching immigration confrontation with even greater stakes. Regardless of how Congress handles his request for more border resources, President Obama is moving toward a historic—and explosive—executive order that will provide legal status to a significant number of the estimated 11.7 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. One senior White House official says that while "what's happening at the border will provide...
