    Subtitle: Two days with 10 men who left Central America in early November to embark on an exhausting journey, made riskier by the Mexican authorities' crackdown on migrants. ARRIAGA, Mexico - The police truck appeared suddenly, a glint of metal and glass. The migrants broke into a sprint, tripping over cracked pavement as an older woman sweeping her stoop urged them to hurry. The 10 men rounded the corner and hid behind a row of low-slung trees. Four days into their journey from Central America, the new reality on Mexico's southern border was setting in: Under pressure from the United...
  • California issued 605,000 new driver's licenses for immigrants in the U.S. illegally last year

    Judith Benitez had gone most of her adult life without knowing how to drive. The 35-year-old woman from Mexico who is in the U.S. illegally would ask family members for rides to pick up her children from school. Trips to the grocery store or the doctor's office were complicated. That changed last year when Assembly Bill 60 was implemented, granting people in the country illegally the right to obtain driver's licenses in California. "Truthfully, it was an extremely emotional time because having a [driver's] license isn't just any little thing," she said. "We feel a little more protected."

    A group of 184 Cubans, who had traveled through Guatemala to reach Mexican territory at Ciudad Hidalgo in the southern state of Chiapas, received from Mexican authorities a provisional visitor's document which, for humanitarian reasons, allows them to travel the length of this country to the United States. The 39 families, which include a number of pregnant women, left Costa Rica last Thursday on a flight to El Salvador, from where they traveled in four buses through Guatemala to the Mexican border. The National Migration Institute, or INM, provided the 184 Cubans with a provisional visitor's document granting them up...

    Donald Trump, the 2016 GOP presidential frontrunner who's polling ahead of all his opponents here in New Hampshire, told Breitbart News on Friday morning that America is in dire straits if voters don't elect someone president who can get the nation's immigration crisis under control. "If somebody great doesn't get in as president, we don't have a country anymore," Trump responded when asked by Breitbart News for his thoughts on recent congressional testimony by border patrol agents that the nation's immigration laws are basically nullified. "We're not going to have a country anymore." The testimony, as reported by the Washington...

    This is to inform folks. In Mexico, a man (Juan Gomez) and a woman (Maria Torres) marry. They go to the municipal office and register to marry. They are told, "Okay, you are now Juan Gomez and Maria Torres de Gomez." She is not required to change her Social Security name to show her legal married name because neither he nor she have Social Security numbers. No where are they required on documents to show their legal married names. So, whenever she chooses, she can just give her name as Maria Torres. Flash forward to the United States. Now, it's...

    Any politician who claims to care about the drug overdose deaths sweeping the nation, but does not demand that we build a wall, deport illegal aliens and end the anchor baby scam, is a liar. In 2014, more people died from drug overdoses than any year in U.S. history: 47,055. That's more than die in car accidents -- and it's not even close. This is a huge, horrible problem -- and it's a problem caused entirely by the fact that Mexico is on our southern border. The diverse, hardworking people of Mexico manufacture the majority of heroin in the U.S....

    The recent raids by immigration agents could be keeping undocumented immigrants in Flint, Michigan from opening their doors to government workers who have been going from home to home to give out bottled water and distribute crucial information. A series of immigration raids on Jan. 2 by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, targeted Central Americans who had outstanding deportation orders. Though only 121 mothers and children were targeted in the raids, it caused widespread panic in Latino communities for weeks afterward. Immigration advocacy groups advised people without legal documents not to open their doors to prevent agents from entering...

    Latino organizers sensed an opportunity when they heard Donald Trump was bringing his presidential campaign to Marshalltown, a small farm city that is home to an increasing number of Latino immigrants and their children. So they organized protests at the high school gymnasium where Trump spoke Tuesday, with about 50 young Latinos marching silently outside as a smattering of Trump supporters hurled insults and laughed at them. But the protest was only the beginning. Down the street, advocates held a drive to register voters and educate immigrants on the complexities of next week's Iowa caucuses, the kickoff for the presidential...

    Illegal immigrant women being detained at a California jail say they are being "humiliated" by strip-searches, particularly in cases involving transgender detainees, and have filed a complaint demanding federal officials put a stop to it. The complaint, sent Monday to the Santa Ana City Jail and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, which contracts with the jail to hold illegal immigrants, is the latest step in an escalating push by immigrant rights advocates to try to end the detention of women and children in the country illegally and, in the meantime, to alleviate conditions at the facilities. In this case, advocates...

    An ICE agent who was struck by a hit-and-run driver in Miami Beach has died from his injuries. The crash happened on Jan. 15 on Collins Avenue near Espanola Way, as two ICE agents were trying to hail a cab around 2:20 a.m. Miami Beach Police arrested the alleged driver, Jordana Rosales, 21, later that day after she reportedly fled the scene of the crash. One of the agents, whose name has not been released, died from his injuries on Sunday, Jan. 24. The other was in stable condition. Police said Rosales hopped the curb and struck the two men....

In that piece, the longtime GOP operative and consultant argued that conservatives should be at the forefront of reform so the law reflects the just interests of the United States, not misty-eyed ideals of some of the liberal do-gooder reformers. That means no special pathways to citizenship that allow undocumented immigrants to cut in line, Russo cautioned, but rather some reasonable procedures that require the 11 million people who...

The Costa Rican government announced that the first flight of Cuban migrants will leave on Jan. 12 for El Salvador - the first stop on their journey north - out of Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia.

He says that will continue until the 1966 Cuban Adjustment Act is changed. According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, over 43,000 Cuban migrants crossed into the united states in 2015 and around two-thirds, have crossed through the Laredo field office on the Texas-Mexico border. "The continued number of Cubans are coming to the United States where they get preferential treatment under that law", said Cuellar. Cuellar says he anticipates it will be a while until Congress...

President Juan Orlando Hernandez stressed that Hondurans travelling to the U.S. in search of work “give back to the economy” while they live there, calling on immigration authorities to respect Hondurans’ rights. Local authorities are expecting the wave of returnees to continue over the coming days, including 16 mothers and 21 minors set to be deported back to Honduras Wednesday.

National institutions that oversee human rights will keep tabs on the treatment given to the Cubans by each country along the planned route, according to the council’s statement. Once on U.S. soil, Cubans can claim refugee status and gain permanent residency. The United Nations International Organization for Migration is overseeing the operation to...

    Federal immigration enforcement agents last weekend arrested 121 migrants for deportation, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said on Monday, starting a wave of removals of parents and children, mainly from Central America, who came during the border surge in 2014 and failed to win asylum in immigration courts. Most of the arrests were in Georgia, Texas and North Carolina, officials said, and were of migrants who had lost their cases and were ordered deported by immigration judges. The deportations are part of “concerted nationwide enforcement operations” to achieve a “greater rate” of deportation of parents who crossed the border illegally...

The arrest of the immigrants marks the first major offensive since a wave of families and unaccompanied children flooded the nation's southern border in 2014, which prompted a renewed debate about U.S. immigration laws and led to accusations from conservatives that the Obama administration has been too weak on protecting the border. This weekend's efforts "should come as no surprise," Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said in...

    A massive airlift of refugees will begin in Central America next week after regional countries agreed to help thousands of stranded Cubans who have been driven by the threat of normalised relations to migrate to the United States. Fears that talks between Washington and Havana may soon curtail favourable US migration policies have prompted the biggest rush from the Caribbean island since the "raft exodus" of 1994. More than 40,000 Cubans have entered the US this year, almost double the number in 2014. Many more are stranded, after travelling via Ecuador, which offered visa-free entry for Cuban arrivals, and then...

His polls numbers have continued to stagnate, and in some cases, plummet. Bush's initial blitz may have scared away Mitt Romney, but nobody else is frightened of him. Donald Trump calls him a "nice guy" in a way that seems designed to torture him. We haven't even gotten to Bush's heresies on immigration and education policy - that's how secure his rivals...

    The number of migrants and refugees who have entered Europe by sea and land this year has passed the one million mark, a long-expected but symbolically significant capstone to a year in which displaced people flocked to the Continent in historic proportions. The huge influx - the largest movement of people on the Continent since World War II - has strained the resources of Germany, which has been the ultimate destination for most of the migrants; prompted a right-wing backlash there and in much of Europe; and exposed the European Union's inability to coordinate an effective response. As of Monday,...

She also said it is often easier for people to focus on the costs of migration rather than the “countless contributions” immigrants make to their “countries of destination” such as the United States. “Now imagine this figure: $11.8 billion. This is the amount of dollars that...

    If you've never heard of leishmaniasis, you're lucky — and you probably live in a developed country. It's an illness caused by parasites that are carried by tiny blood-sucking insects called sandflies. The painful, hard-to-treat sores it leaves on skin and internal organs can be disfiguring and even sometimes deadly. And while leishmaniasis mostly occurs in Central and South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia for now, it's moving north into the United States, as Maryn McKenna reports in a blog post. In a story for National Geographic News, McKenna describes how about half of the members of an...

    Selecting San Francisco's former police chief to head the U.S. Border Patrol would encourage more illegal border crossings because she has a record of not enforcing federal immigration laws, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., argues. Heather Fong advocated San Francisco's "sanctuary city" policy of non-cooperation with federal immigration officials, Johnson said in a letter Monday to U.S. Customs and Border Protection Commissioner R. Gil Kerlikowske. "The selection of such a candidate would send a strong message-both in the U.S. and outside of the U.S.-that enforcing our immigration laws is not a priority of U.S. Customs and Border Protection," Johnson wrote.

    The surge of illegal immigrant children continued unabated in November, pushing the Obama administration to announce emergency measures to try to handle a problem it thought it had solved earlier this year. Two months into the new fiscal year, the number of unaccompanied minors jumping the border and getting caught is at an all-time high. So far, the U.S. Border Patrol has picked up over 10,500 — more than twice the number at the same point last year. The number of families trying to cross also has surged, with more than 12,500 people caught — a 173 percent increase over...

    San Francisco and other cities across the United States have created so-called "sanctuaries" for illegal aliens. These municipalities are defying federal immigration law, just like some Southern jurisdictions that defied federal civil rights laws in the 1960s. But unlike that earlier era, today's sanctuary cities are creating safe havens for known criminals. Their policies have victimized innocent Americans, enabling illegal aliens to commit thousands of crimes that would not otherwise have occurred. There is no question that sanctuary policies violate federal immigration law. One provision of the law (8 U.S.C. 1373) bans local governments from preventing law enforcement or other...

    Congressional Democrats filed an extraordinary brief with the Supreme Court late Thursday urging the justices to overturn a lower court ruling and reinstate President Obama executive amnesty, arguing that the executive branch has a better handle on immigration than Capitol Hill. Led by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, the 218 Democrats said Congress intended for Mr. Obama to have sweeping powers to grant proactive stays of deportation, work permits and Social Security numbers to the more than 11 million illegal immigrants estimated to be in the country. "The patterns of immigration are subject to...

    Lindsey Graham on Thursday delivered a scathing rebuke of Republican candidates — especially Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Donald Trump — for alienating Hispanic and female voters with “hard-ass” policies and hateful rhetoric. “How many of you believe that we’re losing elections because we’re not hard-ass enough on immigration?” Graham asked during his speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition in Washington, D.C. A few people in the room clapped, and Graham responded: “Well, I don’t agree with you. I believe we are losing the Hispanic vote because they think we don’t like them.”(continued)

    The question that continues to nag at everyone in the immigration debate is what to do with the 11-12 million illegal aliens who are already in the country. (Some estimates run that number up to as many as 30 million.) Ted Cruz outlined his approach to this problem on Hugh Hewitt's radio program on Monday night. It essentially involves voluntary self-repatriation. Here's what Cruz said: "Once we secure the border, you stop filling the boat that's sinking, a number of people start to go home voluntarily every year to be with their families. That population will start shrinking. After that,...

    They connect via online services — especially Twitter — and in everyday life. Their ages range from 15 to 47, and their roles range from cheering attacks to plotting violence. And curbing their growth is a dynamic challenge without a simple solution: There are currently 900 active investigations into ISIS sympathizers in every American state. Those are some of the findings of a new study that glimpses life "inside the bubble of American ISIS sympathizers, a diverse and diffuse scene that the FBI estimates include hundreds, if not thousands, of individuals." Titled "ISIS in America: From Retweets to Raqqa," the...

    WAYNESBORO, Va. (WHSV) -- Waynesboro police arrested three illegal immigrants from Mexico Friday afternoon when they were stopped on a traffic stop with a semi-automatic handgun among them. Fidel Moreno Pina, 35, Israel Arista Vega, 34, and Javier Lopez Gomez, 35, all face a single felony count of possession of a firearm by a non-U.S. citizen in the county illegally. On November 20, at about 1:15 p.m., an officer with the department’s Special Operations Division, who was acting on a tip, stopped a 2007 Hummer in the 1000 block of Albemarle Avenue. During the traffic stop, officers searched the vehicle...

  • Americans agree with Trump: The illegal immigrants must go

    Most Americans agree with Donald Trump -- the illegal aliens have to go. Head 'em up, move 'em out. A new Fox News poll shows 52 percent of the nation favors deporting the millions of illegals back to their home countries. Republicans and Democrats support Mr. Trump’s plan. But the numbers among Republicans are astronomical. Seventy percent agree with Mr. Trump -- a super-majority. So why does the Republican establishment continue to support pro-amnesty candidates? Jeb Bush accused Mr. Trump of preying on people's deep-seated fears. “This whole idea of preying on people’s deep-seated fears of what the future looks...

    The battle between Ohio Gov. John Kasich and GOP front-runner Donald Trump is heating up. A video released online Tuesday by the Kasich campaign attacks Trump for his rhetoric against various minority groups, invoking the theme of needing to stand up for people before it's too late. The video features retired Col. Tom Moe, a U.S. Air Force veteran and Vietnam POW, paraphrasing the famous words of late German pastor and concentration camp survivor Martin Niemoller: "You might not care if Donald Trump says Muslims must register with their government because you're not one. And you might not care if...
  • Texas asks Supreme Court for delay in Obama amnesty case

    The Washington Times ^ | November 23, 2015 | Mark Sherman - AP
    WASHINGTON -- Texas asked the Supreme Court Monday for more time to answer the Obama administration's immigration appeal, a delay that probably would prevent the plan to shield millions of immigrants from deportation from taking effect during Barack Obama's presidency. If the justices agree to the state's request, the administration's plan would miss the court's informal deadline for a decision by the end of June. The plan that Obama unveiled a year ago mainly affects people who are living in the country illegally, but who have children who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. Unless the court was to...

    The Justice Department asked the Supreme Court to reinstate President Obama's deportation amnestyFriday, filing papers appealing a federal appeals court's decision blocking the amnesty exactly a year after the program was first announced. Administration officials hope to get the case on the high court's calendar for this term, which ends in June. Otherwise the case would have to wait to be heard until October 2016, at the earliest, which would mean a decision likely wouldn't come until after Mr. Obama leaves office and a new president has a chance to undo his moves. Mr. Obama is desperate to try to...

    Migration of Mexicans to the U.S. has plunged to a net negative for the first time since the 1940s, bringing down the curtain on the largest wave of immigration in modern American history, according to a new study. The Pew Research Center found that more Mexicans have been leaving America to return to their home country in recent years than arriving in the U.S. It based the study on an analysis of U.S. and Mexican government data. Mexican migration has been falling for some time. But the Pew figures released Thursday suggest that the surge in legal and illegal Mexican...
