    It’s not easy watching California self-destruct. After all, my four sons are 6th generation Californians. One relative of ours journeyed here prior to the Gold Rush when the state population was just a handful of people. Family lore has it he was a gunslinger who, victorious in a gun duel, headed to California to avoid the law. He ended up ranching on what is now known as Mammoth Mountain. Other family members took part in the gold rush and one ended up discovering gold in 1895 in the Mojave Desert. My grandparents arrived in Kern County in the 1930s and...

    Immigration is a part of Hollywood’s story just as much as it is America’s. In the early years of cinema, many of the first regular moviegoers were working-class immigrants. Immigrants founded major studios like Paramount and Warner Bros. Yet, the story of coming to America seems to have fallen off multiplex marquees at a time when immigration has become one of the most contested issues in politics. Sorely missing are movies about undocumented immigrants, an absence that is glaring even in an industry that has struggled to keep up with the times. Reporters and documentarians are sharing the tales of...

He’s a self-admitted member of the Hispanic street gang Sureno 13, a press release said.

    A huge boom in immigration, legal and illegal, over the past 16 years has jumped the immigrant population to over 43 million in the United States, according to a new report. And when their U.S.-born children are added, the number grows to over 60 million, making the immigrant community nearly one-fifth of the nation's population, according to federal statistics reviewed by the Center for Immigration Studies. snip The new report does not break down the percentage of legal and illegal immigrants in the U.S., although there are an estimated 12 million undocumented aliens in the country. It found that since...

    U.S. Border Patrol agents recently made two separate arrests of juvenile recipients of the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program for attempting to smuggle illegal aliens across the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas. U.S. Customs and Border Protection, an agency within the Department of Homeland Security, on Thursday published a press release detailing the arrests of two so-called "Dreamers," illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors who receive legal protections under DACA, who are nationals from Guatemala and Mexico. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> On October 4, 2017, Border Patrol agents arrested a juvenile attempting to smuggle two illegal aliens.

    Behind the scenes on an ICE Air deportation flight. Alexandria, Louisiana - The men shuffle in a line across a lonely tarmac, one by one. Chains around their ankles clank with each step, a steady beat punctuating the engines' roar. Some men walk in sneakers without laces. Some sport navy blue prison-issue shoes. One wears work boots, still stained with paint. This may be the last time they touch US soil. The Boeing 737 beside them is bound for Guatemala City. In about 30 minutes, the screening process is over and 116 passengers have boarded the plane — first men,...

    San Diego State University has set aside a large chunk of money to pay for its students’ Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals application renewal fees. Officials at the the public university allocated $130,000 to fund the renewal application fees, which run $495 apiece. “This is a one time funding allocation not to exceed $130,000 and will be given to the SDSU Economic Crisis Response Team. This could fund up to 262 student DACA renewals which we are told by the University would be sufficient,” D. Hayden Willis, vice president of financial affairs at SDSU, wrote in a Sept. 25 memo...

    The Sheriff’s Office in Greenville County, South Carolina, has confirmed that immigration services determined a man accused of shooting and killing a local high school girl was in the U.S. illegally. Officials arrested 19-year-old Daniel De Jesus Rangel Sherrer and charged him with the murder of 18-year-old Diana Martinez-Gonzalez, who was found shot to death last week in a patch of woods along the 400 block of Saluda Dam Road in Easley, South Carolina. Deputies said they received a call from a friend of the victim who was “frantic” over the crime, according to Fox Carolina. At a recent press...

    Following suit with the city of San Jose and jurisdictions across the country that have vowed to protect young “Dreamers,” Santa Clara County and its employees on Tuesday will announce a lawsuit challenging President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program. Officials with Santa Clara County and the local Service Employees International Union will announce the lawsuit at the county government center later today.

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) dismissed President Trump’s new hard-line immigration proposals as “a complete non-starter” Monday, adding that her caucus may withhold support for must-pass spending bills later this year if Congress can’t reach agreement on how to protect “dreamers” from deportation. “I fully intend to use every possibility” to strike a deal on the status of young immigrants protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, Pelosi said. But, she added: “We’re not at that place yet. Right now, we’re trying to get Republicans to vote on what we believe.” House Democrats are pushing an up-or-down...

    We barely had time to forget Rep. Luis Gutierrez's (D-IL) shameful attack on Chief of Staff John Kelly's military service, before he stuck his foot in his mouth again. President Trump released his new immigration demands Sunday night, informing Congress that any new deal must include funding for a border wall. In exchange for an extension of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, the president wants to see a a crackdown on sanctuary cities, thousands more Customs and Border Patrol agents and progress on the border wall. As expected, Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi decried the...

    Californians by a wide margin oppose sanctuary cities. A UC Berkeley study codified these findings for the reading public, as a nearly 80% of respondents from all political leanings opposed policies forbidding cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities. Why should anyone be surprised? These sanctuary city policies amount to nothing more than dangerous posturing from desperate, self-serving, predominantly Democratic politicians.SB 54, officially presented as “The California Values Act”, will bar essential contact between California law enforcement officers and Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Normally, ICE issues detainers to local jails, and law enforcement officers release the names of...

Workplace raids: would require an employer to require proper court documents before allowing immigration agents access to the workplace or to employee information. ‘Dreamer’ and student protections: prevents schools from collecting information about the immigration status of students or their families. Immigration detention centers: places a moratorium on new or renewed contracts between local...

Jerry Brown signed Thursday to create a statewide sanctuary policy. Brown signed the bill and 10 other immigration-related bills on the same day as a critical deadline for immigrants aided by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, who must file by Thursday for a final two-year extension before the program is phased out.

    A Pennsylvania-based company has agreed to pay $95 million in criminal fines for illegally employing undocumented immigrants. The judgment is the largest of its kind in U.S. history, federal prosecutors said.

The scheme to unlawfully employ undocumented immigrants was perpetrated throughout the ranks of Asplundh from 2010 to December 2014, according to a statement from...
