    The Albuquerque Journal ^ | October 21, 2014 | ABQ Journal Staff
    Immigrant rights groups filed a Freedom of Information Act court action in Washington, D.C. Tuesday to compel the release of documents regarding the use of the expedited removal process against families with children, including those detained at the family detention center in Artesia, N.M. The groups, in a news release, said the government has not publicly released critical information about the procedures governing its operations at the facility, despite the potentially life-threatening consequences for the women and children detained there.

    Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) told Breitbart News that black workers across America should be wary of supporting Democrats because of President Obama and other Democrats’ support for immigration policies that displace them economically. "A nation owes its first obligation to its own citizens,” Sessions said in an emailed statement. “But our current immigration policy advantages the citizens of other countries over our own. Undeniably, one of the groups most hurt economically by unjust immigration policies are African-American citizens.” Sessions points to a study that Harvard economist Dr. George Borjas published with the National Bureau of...

    Graciela Iniguez guesses she has spent $12,000 on traffic tickets and vehicle impound fees since she started driving 20 years ago. As an undocumented immigrant from Jalisco, Mexico, Iniguez drives without a license. But that's soon to change. Starting Jan. 1, California residents who can't prove they are in United States legally will be allowed to obtain driver's licenses under Assembly Bill 60, which Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law last year. "This law is going to benefit us so much," she said. "Thank God, now we won't have to be afraid to drive." "Unfortunately, it's not a privilege to...

    Seated at the defense table in U.S. Immigration Court in Philadelphia, the 10-year-old looked down at his feet, which barely reached the floor. Coal-eyed, he resembled a Latino Dennis the Menace, with a "fauxhawk" instead of a cowlick and clad in a shirt that read: Last name: Maker. First name: Trouble. Having entered the U.S. illegally eight months ago, the boy, Carlos, was arrested on the Texas border, given a notice to appear in court to face deportation. In a daylong court session this month, Judge Steven Morley, presiding at the federal building at Ninth and Market Streets, heard Carlos'...

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services plans to seek a vendor to produce as many as 34 million blank work permits and 'green cards' – the paperwork that authorizes illegal immigrants to live and work in the United States – as the White House prepares to issue an executive order after the Nov. 4 midterm elections. According to a draft solicitation published online, the government agency will look for a company that can produce a minimum 4 million cards per year for five years, and 9 million in the early stages. President Barack Obama has pledged that he will make a...

    Despite no official action from the president ahead of the election, the Obama administration has quietly begun preparing to issue millions of work authorization permits, suggesting the implementation of a large-scale executive amnesty may have already begun. Unnoticed until now, a draft solicitation for bids issued by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Oct. 6 says potential vendors must be capable of handling a “surge” scenario of 9 million id cards in one year “to support possible future immigration reform initiative requirements.” The request for proposals says the agency will need a minimum of four million cards per year.

    After six 10-hour workdays a week at a nail salon, Gloria Chocoj picks up her children from the baby sitter, walks them home and begins her evening routine: cooking dinner, helping with homework, giving baths before bedtime and packing school lunches. It is a full schedule she has tackled alone since December — after her husband, Jose Estrada Lopez, who entered the country illegally from Guatemala 14 years ago, was picked up by immigration officials. His arrest and detention in Elizabeth forced Chocoj to get a full-time job and become the sole provider and caregiver of their three young children....

    The problem with voting into the presidency an internationalist is that his oath to “protect and defend” the Constitution (and by implication the nation) doesn’t apply to this nation. He sees it as his duty to protect and defend some undifferentiated poor folks in the Third World. You suckers just pay the bills and suffer the consequences of his actions. Proof is overwhelming that this represents Obama’s mindset. This week is no exception. From a review of the expenditures made by this administration with tax revenues meant to protect our health and safety and his immigration policies, we can see...

    It so happened that an 11-year-old boy came home from school one day and told his parents that the first European white people who came to America were so mean that they tried to kill the Indians by giving them blankets with smallpox germs. The boy’s father tried to use this as a teachable moment. He asked his son to think if that made sense, even if the first white settlers were that evil. How would they avoid getting smallpox themselves? The boy then let it be known that the American Constitution was written by the Iroquois Indians. The father...

    Responding to complaints from dozens of Hispanic children who said they had been barred from public school classes on Long Island, the state on Friday issued new legal guidance regarding enrollment procedures, exhorting school districts to comply with federal law by allowing undocumented immigrant children to begin classes. The students, many of whom are newly arrived immigrants, say they successfully enrolled in the summer or early fall, but were warned by Hempstead administrators that there was not enough space or teachers to accommodate them. Diana Hernandez, 16, who came to Hempstead from Honduras in July, said in an interview on...

Federal immigration authorities reported 61 releases and no deportations last week at the Artesia Family Residential Center in southeastern New Mexico, Artesia Mayor Phillip Burch said. The numbers show a dramatic change from the center's first two weeks, when 135 people were deported and 12 were released, according to figures provided to Burch by ICE officials.

    Like every other western nation, Australia has their own concerns about terrorist incursion and illegal immigration. They are sometimes perceived as having somewhat of an advantage in this area because they are an island nation, so there is no physical border fence to maintain. But they’ve got an incredibly huge coastline to control and smugglers frequently try to bring small boats ashore to deliver illegal immigrants. The government has put out a renewed message, letting foreigners know in no uncertain terms that the welcome mat is not out. Australian authorities have published a graphic campaign, seemingly aimed at deterring asylum...

When asked what earned him his admission, he hesitated, not wanting to boast.

    A new poll shows likely New Mexico voters still oppose an 11-year-old state law that allows immigrants who are in the country illegally to obtain driver's licenses. The Albuquerque Journal reports three-fourths of the likely voters surveyed opposed the law, echoing findings of similar Journal polls.

    Breitbart's Big Government ^ | September 22, 2014 | Tony Lee
    George P. Bush, Jeb Bush's son and Republican candidate for Texas land commissioner, said that in-state tuition for illegal immigrants is just a "nominal" cost to taxpayers. Speaking at The Texas Tribune Festival on Friday evening, Bush said that until someone can present a "sensible alternative" to the Texas's version of DREAM Act, he would support the the law that Texas Governor Rick Perry signed in 2001. Bush said in-state tuition for illegal immigrants is just "a nominal cost from an economic perspective" for the state of Texas. Bush also suggested that in-state tuition for illegal immigrants should be indexed....

    News 12 Long Island ^ | September 17, 2014
    There are growing concerns about the exploding young immigrant population on Long Island. Officials say thousands of undocumented children who crossed the United States border illegally are now in school districts in the area. This year alone 2,200 undocumented children crossed the border and came to Long Island to live. News 12 has learned about 1,200 of them are enrolled in the Hempstead School District. School Board president Lamont Johnson said Hempstead is unprepared for all these students, and trying to figure out where to put them all. Right now some are standing up in class, or even sitting on...

    The Daily Caller's DC Trawler ^ | September 18, 2014 | Derek Hunter
    Montgomery County, Maryland, is one of the wealthiest and most liberal counties in America. If there’s a dumb progressive idea that didn’t start there, it will get there sooner or later. Along those lines, the powers that be in Montgomery County are very concerned about low voter turnout. So concerned, in fact, the all Democrat County Council formed a “Right to Vote” Task Force to come up with ways to encourage more people to vote. The task force produced a 76-page report with more than a few suggestions that could raise a few eyebrows. Recommendations 1-3 are: 1. The Task...

    In Time for November Elections: More ultra BAD news out of the fortress in Washington, DC, once known as the ‘seat of power’ for America but lately called “Ohhhhhh Migawd Central Command for Socialized Communists” AKA the Oval Office. This hurtful message comes from our would-be Dictator and Doomsayer, Barack Obama by way of Leo Hohmann at Patriots For America in an online editorial titled, “U. N. To Dump Flood Of Muslim Refugees On U.S.” Of course you will note the headline for Hohmann’s article includes the nefarious and utterly corrupt United Nations as being one of the lead actors...

    Numbers aren't everything. Chattanooga's Hispanic population more than tripled between 2000 and 2010. But that growth may not have translated to the local economy. An analysis by personal finance social network WalletHub ranked Chattanooga third among the 150 largest U.S. cities for growth in the Hispanic population. Yet the Scenic City ranked closer to the bottom of the list for Hispanic purchasing power and business friendliness toward Hispanics. With a population of 54 million, Hispanics now make up the nation's largest ethnic or racial minority, and by 2050 could make up a third of the population. And their influence on...

    Colorado’s Department of Motor Vehicles mistakenly issued U.S. citizen driver’s licenses to 524 non-citizens, including some illegal immigrants, CBS4 has learned. The licenses look like those given to state residents. The DMV blamed a software problem at a contractor, who is working with DMV to retrieve the licenses and re-issue correct IDs. ... When the DMV announced it would issue appointments to non-citizens to receive licenses, calls and online orders deluged its offices. Tens of thousands reportedly contacted the DMV to register ...

    Coach is Right ^ | 9/11/14 | Suzanne Eovaldi
    Avoiding another Murrieta is the driving reason behind the Obama Administration secretly inserting thousands of illegal children (UACs) into school districts nationwide as a new school year begins. The fact that many districts are hard pressed to handle their own children is of no particular concern to the Regime. Four states– TX, CA, FL, and VA show up on a Numbers USA code map as having received the brunt of the 37,477 UACs so far this year. (1) Transparency, an empty campaign word Obama used way back in ’08 to vault into America’s White House, is a joke. Children entering...

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry's deployment of National Guard troops on the U.S.-Mexican border is "reprehensible" and puts neighborly relations at risk, Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said in an interview published on Friday. "Not only is it displeasing, but I think it's reprehensible," Pena Nieto told Mexican daily El Universal in an interview published on Friday. "It is an attack on good relations and neighborliness." Pena Nieto said Perry's decision contrasts starkly with other U.S. states, like California, which have embraced more immigrant-friendly policies. "The policy is completely unacceptable and it does not embody the spirit of cordiality and friendship...
