    Washington Post ^ | May 27, 2015 | By Emma Brown
    TheDream.US, the nation’s largest scholarship fund for immigrant youths who entered the country illegally as children, is embarking on a campaign to raise at least $30 million to help undocumented students pay for college. Donald E. Graham, a former owner of The Washington Post who co-founded TheDream.US last year, has pledged $15 million to kick off the fundraising drive, as has hedge fund manager Bill Ackman. Their gifts were in addition to previous donations of $10 million each and were meant in part to spur other philanthropists to donate. The money will go toward providing $25,000 scholarships to undocumented students...

    ... In a statement on Wednesday, officials from the Justice Department said they would not ask the Supreme Court to reverse this week’s decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit that continues to block the president’s immigration actions. “The department believes the best way to achieve this goal is to focus on the ongoing appeal on the merits of the preliminary injunction itself,” said Patrick Rodenbush, a spokesman for the Justice Department. “Although the department continues to disagree with the Fifth Circuit’s refusal to stay the district court’s preliminary injunction, the department has determined that...

    Napa Valley Register ^ | May 26, 2015 | By Jennifer Huffman
    For five weeks this summer, Napa County children can get a free lunch at one of five school sites in Napa. “More than 49 percent of our students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch during the school year,” said Sunita Dutt-Ellenby, food services coordinator. The free lunch program dovetails with the Migrant Education program, the federally funded program designed to provide supplementary educational and support services to children and youth of migrant families, ages 3-21. Because school district staff will already be working in District kitchens making breakfast, lunch and snacks for Migrant Education recipients, Dutt-Ellenby decided to expand...

    America’s most powerful former law professor is getting a re-education in the Constitution, and on present course President Obama might flunk out. Witness Tuesday’s federal appeals-court rebuke of his 2014 immigration order, including language that suggests the Administration will also lose on the legal and policy merits. Mr. Obama caused a furor in November when he suddenly claimed powers he had previously said he didn’t have to award legal status and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants. The Administration claims it is merely allowing immigration officers to apply routine “prosecutorial discretion” on a case by case basis not to...

    05/25/2015 7:10:21 PM PDT · by Beave Meister · 184 replies
    Ann Coulter is back, more fearless than ever. In Adios, America she touches the third rail in American politics, attacking the immigration issue head-on and flying in the face of La Raza, the Democrats, a media determined to cover up immigrants' crimes, churches that get paid by the government for their "charity," and greedy Republican businessmen and campaign consultants—all of whom are profiting handsomely from mass immigration that's tearing the country apart. Applying her trademark biting humor to the disaster that is U.S. immigration policy, Coulter proves that immigration is the most important issue facing America today.

    A pack of Democratic congressional leaders lined up on Capital Hill on Thursday to condemn the Obama administration for “jailing” migrant mothers and children in family detention centers across the country. Reps. Zoe Lofgren and Lucille Roybal-Allard of California and Luis Gutiérrez of Illinois led a group of nearly a dozen Democrats, who warned the Obama administration that it was fighting a losing battle after a California court concluded in a draft ruling that the president’s policies violated a decades-old agreement on migration. It’s time, they said, to stop the “violent” and “unconscionable” practice that is also an embarrassment to...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential campaign has hired an illegal immigrant “Dreamer” to work on her 2016 bid, activists said Wednesday, in a move that sees the Democratic front-runner check off yet another wish-list item for Hispanic voters. Lorella Praeli is here under President Obama’s 2012 deportation amnesty for Dreamers, or young adult illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. As part of that amnesty, she has tentative legal status and a work permit, so it is legal to hire her — but she is still not in lawful presence. Immigrant-right advocates cheered the move as historic, though they...

    Chicago has become the promised land for undocumented migrants with kidney problems, people who in other states receive no medical care due to their immigration status although here they can get free dialysis and kidney transplants. The Illinois legislature last October passed a law that provides funds for kidney transplants for undocumented migrants, the first such legislation in the United States. Religious and community organizations such as Latinos por la Salud and the Mision de Vida, Fe y Esperanza have received requests for help from people arriving from the neighboring states of Wisconsin and Minnesota, while others have traveled much...

Students receive a $1,000 stipend each quarter from the UndocuBruins Research Program which is funded by the UC...

    The Department of Homeland Security does not maintain data on how many illegal immigrants it allows to stay in the U.S. through prosecutorial discretion — a failure that could have national security implications — the agency’s inspector general reported Wednesday. “The Department’s ability to accurately assess the results of policy decisions and make needed changes is important given its modified approach to immigration enforcement,” wrote inspector general John Roth. Though the Obama administration has implemented new policies that rolled back immigration enforcement through executive action and expanded the use of prosecutorial discretion, “the policies did not include a requirement to...

    Federal officials are threatening to split up mothers and children if they’re forced to dismantle three family detention centers holding nearly 1,000 migrant women and children, most of whom said they fled violence in Central America. U.S. Department of Justice lawyers will try to negotiate a way to keep the facilities open after a federal court in California concluded that the Obama administration’s use of family detention centers violates an 18-year-old court settlement regarding the detention of migrant children. Federal attorneys acknowledged the family detention system could collapse if the ruling stands. The practice of family detention has reached a...

    Just when you think the GOP might modernize, the knuckles start dragging again, this time on immigration and trade. It’s political suicide. If you want to see where the impulse to reform the Republican Party in a more libertarian direction of limited government, social tolerance, and free markets goes to die, look no further than the recent attacks on immigration and freer trade by Jeff Sessions, the influential senator from Alabama. Every time the GOP seems finally ready to orient itself in a forward-looking, post-culture-war direction, some holdover from an America that never quite existed to begin with blows his...

And that certainly includes the LGBT community, also includes children, and it includes unaccompanied children. There are just--there are groups of people who I think we deserve a higher level of care, because of the situations that they are finding themselves in.

    Two illegal aliens in Walker County, Texas, have pleaded guilty to murdering and dismembering a 16-year-old high school student with a baseball bat and a machete in a national park nearly two years ago. According to investigators, the crime was a revenge killing ordered by the infamously violent Latin American gang Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13. Cristian Zamora, 22, and Ricardo Leonel Campos Lara, 19, both from El Salvador, pleaded guilty on April 17 to aiding and abetting each other and others with the murder of 16-year-old Josael Guevara on Sept. 23, 2013, the Houston Chronicle reported.

    To U.S. citizens, state and federal laws can be dizzying. To someone here without legal documentation, it can be far worse: intimidating, frightening and limiting. Santa Rosa Junior College’s new Dream Center, which marked its grand opening Monday, aims to become a safe, supportive, one-stop shop for undocumented students and potential students as they explore their educational future. There are more than 900 undocumented students at SRJC, some of whom didn’t know they weren’t American citizens until they began to think about higher education. They hail from Mexico, Canada, China and even Russia, school officials said. Enrollment at the college...

    A battle is brewing in the Republican Party over whether illegal immigrants granted deferred deportation by President Obama should be eligible to serve in the military. Anti-immigration hard-liners and vulnerable Republicans who represent districts with large Hispanic populations are battling over provisions in the annual Defense authorization bill, which is set to come to the House floor next week. The fight underscores the GOP’s difficulty in wrestling with Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, which allows qualified illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children to obtain temporary work permits.

    Non-citizens are voting in American elections, and the federal government refuses to do anything to stop it. Worse, the current administration seems to be doing everything they can to prevent the states from trying to stop it. First, they sued states that asked people to present ID before voting. Now, the administration will not let states even ask people to establish they are citizens when they register to vote. That’s the underlying plot in the latest major case in election law that has just been presented to the Supreme Court. Federal law says that states must accept and use a federal form for registering voters.

    To borrow a quote from Game of Thrones, which recently had its season 5 premiere, “Winter is coming.” This is what can happen in Texas, our economy could start to freeze up, if we limit educational opportunities for undocumented students in Texas by passing Senate Bill 1819. It would end the dreams of thousands of Texas high school graduates, who have lived here since they were children, and rely on in-state tuition regardless of immigration status. The push to rescind 14 years of in-state tuition to these students, known as Dreamers, will greatly impact the Texas economy — a college...

Due to current policy, all automatically become U.S. citizens, Center for Immigration Studies legal policy analyst Jon Feere testified before a House panel Wednesday. “To put this in perspective this means that one out of 10 births in the U.S. is to an illegal immigrant mother,” Freere said at a House Subcommittee on Immigration and Border Security hearing titled “Birthright Citizenship: Is It The Right Policy For America?” He explained that, regardless of the foreign allegiance and/or illegal status of the parents, their children, if...

On the same day that House Republicans were holding a hearing on whether people born in the U.S. should get automatic citizenship, immigration and civil rights activists affixed that brand to Republicans in Congress and by extension, the party's 2016 hopefuls. "The GOP-controlled Congress has all but cemented its anti-immigrant legacy and may meet its destiny in 2016," the activists said in a report they released Wednesday with the words "Mass Deportation"...

    The Obama administration is on pace to deport the fewest number of immigrants in nearly a decade, according to internal government data obtained by The Associated Press. As of April 20, federal immigration officials sent home 127,378 people in the United States illegally. That puts immigrant removals on track to be among the lowest since the middle of President George W. Bush's second term. The internal statistics reveal a continuing decline in deportations even as the Obama administration fights a legal challenge to a plan it announced late last year to shield millions of immigrants from deportations. "With the resources...

A recent Texas Tribune analysis revealed that the majority of undocumented students who pay in-state tuition rates don't attend four-year universities – they’re in community colleges. And most are in school here in North Texas. Like many immigrants, Alejandra Miranda and her parents left their native El Salvador for a “better life.” That was 12 years ago. She’s 23 now and enrolled at North Lake College in Irving. As she sat in...

More than 11 million unauthorized immigrants settled into our communities; many formed families and had children.

    Which entrance into this nation is illegal? The natural journey down the birth canal or the unnatural, contrived crossing of the border? Ten senators laid down their mandate to protect the Constitution when they voted to confirm Loretta Lynch as attorney general Thursday, April 23. Having taken an oath to uphold the tenets of our founding documents, these republicans, who vowed to serve faithfully, were found faithless. There was good reason why President Obama had placed such confidence in his nominee to become the top justice official. When questioned by the Senate committee, Lynch plainly stated her intention of standing...

In the end, the bill to allow some undocumented students to pay in-state tuition at state colleges and universities failed by one vote, 49-47. Fifty votes were needed to approve the bill, which had passed in the Senate. The measure is dead until next year.

    American opposition to the Obama administration and GOP establishment’s extremist immigration policies is boiling at an all-time high, a broad survey of polls shows. Sixty percent of Americans are displeased with the current levels of immigration, according to Gallup—a decline from 72 percent in 2008, when the country plunged into a recession, but an increase of six percent from 2014. The majority of adults Gallup polled, 39 percent in a plurality, said they wanted to see immigration levels decrease. Gallup presents these numbers through a partisan filter as “fodder” for Republicans, discomforted as they are by the results. According to...

    California’s chief law officer, Attorney General Kamala Harris, declared this week, “an undocumented immigrant is not a criminal,” a statement in direct contradiction to federal law. Illegally entering and remaining in the country is a federal crime. By stating that those who illegally enter or remain in the United States are not in violation of law is simply incorrect. However, many of these “undocumented immigrants” are not being prosecuted under the current administration. Last November, President Obama declared effective amnesty for an estimated five million illegally present aliens. Since then, Representative Luis Gutierrez has traveled the country, partnering with fellow...

During a conference call held this morning, Mohammad Abdollahi, member and one of the spokespersons of the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), said the women, who have their children with them, "are gonna have one meal a day each evening (during a week), however they are gonna...

    There was something bracingly honest about an op-ed article in The Washington Post last week by Senator Jeff Sessions, an Alabama Republican. Under the headline “America Needs to Curb Immigration Flows,” Mr. Sessions, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary’s immigration subcommittee, argued the case for letting in fewer foreigners. Mr. Sessions, ditching the usual Republican talking points on immigration, choosing instead to echo an uglier time in our history, when nativists wielded the spurious argument that the more immigrants taken in by America, the worse off America is. He’s advocating for “slowing the pace” of legal immigration, supposedly to increase...

    LONDON: Foreign nationals in UK, including many from India may soon face deportation first before being able to appeal against it. David Cameron announced on Tuesday while releasing the Conservative Party's election manifesto ahead of the May 7 general election that if he returns as Britain's prime minster, he will roll out a "deport first, appeal later" policy on illegal immigrants more aggressively. He also announced that he will introduce a satellite tracking for every foreign national offender subject to an outstanding deportation order or deportation proceedings. He will also make it mandatory for all landlords to check the immigration...

    As the Obama administration prepares for a new surge of illegal immigrant children this year, some of those from previous waves are turning up on court dockets across the country, charged with serious crimes such as capital murder and aggravated rape. The cases are exposing many of the holes in the immigration system and the way the U.S. has tried to grapple with children fleeing economic troubles, domestic abuse or gang violence in Central America — and sometimes bringing those very troubles to the U.S. with them. “The eagerness of the administration to open our borders is not without consequence,”...

    The Tuition Equality Act of 2013 was supposed to help young people convert their noblest aspirations into practical realities. Particularly the so-called DREAMers: At last, higher education would be within the reach of these undocumented immigrants, thanks to a prudent government decision which allowed them to pay in-state tuition rates. But it has turned out to be a false promise and phony premise. Gov. Christie vetoed the part of the law that would have granted these unauthorized students the same financial aid received by other New Jersey students, so most of them are out of luck - and in a...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Rep. Luis Gutierriez (D-IL) will be keynote speakers for a pro-amnesty Hispanic group’s convention in April.

Samuel Rodriguez said in a statement. “This convention will bring together influential Christian Hispanic leaders from around the world to address vital issues of...

    Tufts University announced Tuesday it will “proactively and openly” recruit undocumented students and offer financial aid to eligible students, a clear declaration that immigration advocates hailed as a significant victory. Under the new policy, the private university will consider all students in the country illegally as regular domestic applicants, eligible for the same university aid as US citizens. Because undocumented students are ineligible for federal financial aid, the university will make up the difference out of its own funds for students who cannot afford to pay their own way. The Tufts policy applies to all undocumented students, not just those...

    The American Civil Liberties Union wants religious organizations to provide abortions to illegal immigrant children. The ACLU is petitioning for a court order that would force the U.S. government to release documents related to their dealings with religious organizations that assist illegals. “Many unaccompanied teenagers come into the U.S. fleeing abuse and torture in their home countries. Many have been sexually abused or assaulted or forced into prostitution,” Brigitte Amiri, an attorney with the ACLU Reproductive Freedom Project, said. “We believe deeply in religious freedom. But religious freedom does not include the right to take a government contract that requires...

    By the time the vote came, at 1:29 a.m., the Senate Subcommittee on Border Security had more than its share of tears and raised voices. Nearly 10 hours earlier, when the hearing on Senate Bill 1819 started, the vote was a foregone conclusion: In a 2-1 party-line vote, GOP lawmakers on the panel approved the controversial bill that would strip undocumented students from any right to pay in-state tuition at a public Texas college. Sen. Donna Campbell’s proposal now moves to the Senate’s full Veterans Affairs and Military Installations Committee, where it undoubtedly will pass. Given the large Republican majority...

    The anti-American loonies in the American Civil Liberties Union want us to pay for abortions for illegal aliens. In the contorted minds that make up the ACLU since they allege that 60 to 80% the females who sneak into our country are sexually assaulted, we the American tax payers are somehow liable to pay to kill the children that result for these rapes. Naturally these lowlife leftists are not in favor of the obvious answer to the problem they allege which is to tighten up the borders so these “victims” can’t come in to our “terrible country.” The ACLU’s “better”...

    More voters than ever feel the United States is not aggressive enough in deporting those who are here illegally, even as President Obama continues to push his plan to make up to five million illegal immigrants safe from deportation. Just 16% of Likely U.S. Voters think the U.S. government is too aggressive in deporting those who are in the country illegally. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 62% believe the government is not aggressive enough in deporting these illegal immigrants, up from 52% a year ago and 56% in November. Fifteen percent (15%) feel the current number...

    The largest labor organization in the United States on Tuesday launched a national immigration training plan called "We Rise!" to help Hispanics take advantage of the immigration relief measures announced by President Barack Obama last November. The effort is designed to reach, mobilize and organize immigrant workers in their workplaces and in their communities. The AFL-CIO on Tuesday in Washington began preparing representatives who have arrived from all over the country to support and teach undocumented workers how to request protection under Deferred Action, or DACA, for children born in the United States and under DAPA for parents of permanent...
