  • Lou Dobbs: If Paul Ryan ‘Deceives’ Trump into DACA Amnesty, GOP Will Lose House Majority

    Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs says if President Trump is “deceived” by the Republican establishment and House Speaker Paul Ryan into supporting an amnesty for illegal aliens, it will “most certainly” cost the GOP their majority in the House. During a segment of Lou Dobbs Tonight, Dobbs blasted a plan by Ryan and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) which would grant amnesty to at least 1.8 million illegal aliens who have been shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. According to the White House, Trump now supports the amnesty deal, though the president...
  • Inside the Former Walmart That Is Now a Shelter for Almost 1,500 Migrant Children

    BROWNSVILLE, Tex. — In the loading docks, children sat in a darkened auditorium watching the animated movie “Moana.” Where there were once racks of clothes and aisles of appliances, there were now spotless dorm-style bedrooms with neatly made beds and Pokemon posters on the walls. The back parking lots were now makeshift soccer fields and volleyball courts. The McDonald’s was now the cafeteria. All this made it difficult to visualize what the sprawling facility used to be — a former Walmart Supercenter. The converted retail store at the southern tip of Texas has become the largest licensed migrant children’s shelter...

    Ever wonder why going to university nowadays can leave parents broke, or kids with a mountain of debt? If you or your kid is planning to attend Rice University in Houston, be prepared to pony up $46,600 for tuition. If your kid needs to eat and prefers to sleep indoors, your total tab for the year will be $61,350. But you can rest assured that your life’s savings will be put to good use by Rice University, funding such important research as the forthcoming report, “Kicks Hurt Less: Discrimination Predicts Distress Beyond Trauma Among Undocumented Mexican Immigrants.” Sorry, no hyperlink...

    These idiots never learn. Switched on FOX News and there was RINO Ryan, et al, calling for a compromise bill to legalize and grant amnesty to 1.8 million dreamers. Hell no!! Send Obama's illegal aliens back! Obama's DACA is unconstitutional. Hold their feet to the fire (again)! No amnesty!! Not under Bush. Not under Obama. And certainly not under Trump! Build the wall, enforce the law, deport them all!! End sanctuary cities, end anchor babies, end chain migration, end DACA!! And don't break up families. Deport them all!!

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The Latest on the shooting of a U.S. Border Patrol agent in southern Arizona (all times local): 11:40 a.m. An Arizona cattle rancher says that the shooting of a U.S. Border Patrol agent near the boundary with Mexico happened in a remote part of his ranch that is frequently used by drug and migrant smugglers. Jim Chilton tells The Associated Press in an interview that a Border Patrol official sent him an email Tuesday morning informing him the agent was alone when he was wounded on his ranch, and was struck in the leg and the...

    MCALLEN, Texas— Norma Leticia Ulloa Montoya was arrested after rafting across the Rio Grande with her sons and illegally entering the U.S. A day later, she was sent to federal court here, separated from her children, 9 and 6 years old. It was unclear when she would see them again. Ms. Ulloa joined more than 70 other migrants in a crowded courtroom in this South Texas city, including about a dozen other Central American parents. They faced misdemeanor charges for illegally entering the U.S., an offense that carries a maximum 6-month jail sentence. “If one pleads guilty, does one have...

    An internal memo from the chief scientist of the U.S. Census Bureau warned Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross against adding a question on citizenship to the 2020 census. John Abowd, the agency’s chief scientist and associate director for research and methodology, wrote in the January memo that adding a citizenship question would be "very costly, harms the quality of the census count, and would use substantially less accurate citizenship status data than are available from administrative sources." The document also states that adding the questions would create "major potential quality and cost disruptions" for the 2020 census. The memo does say...

    A Honduran immigrant reportedly took his own life while in custody after his wife and child were separated from him at the U.S.-Mexico border. Marco Antonio Muñoz, 29, killed himself in the cell of a Texas jail last month, according to the Starr County sheriff’s department incident report obtained by The Washington Post. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not publicly disclose the death, according to The Post. The Hill has reached out to DHS for comment. U.S. Customs and Border Protection and Starr County authorities did not respond to The Washington Post’s requests for comment. Muñoz’s death occurred...

    Three young Guatemalan women went on trial this week at the red-rock federal courthouse in Alpine, Texas. It's about 70 miles from the spot in the border town of Presidio where they waded across the Rio Grande three weeks ago, with their eight- and nine-year-old sons in tow. One of the women, Emilia Figueroa, testified during the trial that she believed if she brought her boy with her, the two of them would be released to live in the United States until their immigration court date. But, to their horror, the opposite occurred. Agents booked the Guatemalan mothers for unlawful...

    The California state budget could extend a tax break to low-income families of undocumented immigrants. Assembly Democrats want Gov. Jerry Brown to expand the state’s Earned Income Tax Credit in such a way that people who do not have Social Security numbers can apply for it. The proposal is meant to help poor Californians recover some of their state income tax. Last year, a household with two children and an adjusted gross income of up to $22,309 would have been eligible for a tax credit. The maximum credit for a family of that size is $2,467, according to the Franchise...

    Senate Democrats announced legislation Friday to prevent authorities from separating children from their parents at the border, in a move that would likely punch a hole in the middle of the Trump administration’s new zero tolerance border policy. Sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the bill is the first major concrete effort to try to push back against the zero tolerance policy. “The United States must not be a country that traumatizes young children by separating them from their parents,” the California Democrat said. Homeland Security says it’s a misguided attempt. “We don’t have a policy of separating families. If you...

    The Trump administration has stepped up prosecutions of people who cross the southwestern border illegally, but a judicial reform group said there's no evidence that such prosecutions will deter illegal immigration. The Vera Institute of Justice, in a report issued Wednesday, said its analysis of a previous attempt to use prosecutions to stem immigration - known as Operation Streamline - shows that prosecutions and incarceration do not deter migration. Instead, the prosecutions clogged courts, shifted resources from more serious cases and robbed people of due process. Operation Streamline was implemented in 2005 under the George W. Bush administration and required...

    A woman who faked a pregnancy for several months was found guilty on Tuesday of killing her former co-worker and kidnapping the victim's newborn baby with the intent to raise the child as her own. Yesenia Sesmas, 36, an illegal immigrant who was living in Dallas at the time, drove to Wichita, Kan. to shoot 27-year-old Laura Abarca on Nov. 17, 2016, and kidnap 6-day-old Sophia Gonzales. The baby was found safe two days later in Sesmas' Dallas apartment and was returned to relatives. Jurors deliberated for less than three hours on Tuesday and found Sesmas guilty of first-degree premeditated...

    Dozens of illegal immigrants shielded by New York City’s sanctuary policy this year have already gone on to be arrested for still other crimes including drug and theft, the federal government said Friday, looking to pressure the city to change. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement flagged more than 440 people in New York’s jails as deportation targets from January to April. But city officials would only hold those the mayor’s office deemed to have committed egregious crimes, ICE said, meaning dozens were shielded from deportation and set free. Of those, “hundreds” were released and 40 have already been arrested for...

    A transgender Honduran woman, who was part of the caravan of Central American migrants that arrived at the U.S. border earlier this month, died in detention on Friday. Roxana Hernandez, 33, died in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) at a hospital in Albuquerque, New Mexico, from what appeared to be cardiac arrest. Hernandez was first admitted to a hospital more than a week ago “with symptoms of pneumonia, dehydration, and complications associated with HIV,” according to a statement from ICE. Immigration officials identified the woman as Jeffry Hernandez, but LGBTQ rights advocates and caravan organizers said...

    Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos set off a furor over comments she made to members of Congress suggesting that schools should decide whether or not to report undocumented students and their families to federal immigration authorities. "I think that is — that is a school decision," DeVos said during her testimony before the House Education and Workforce Committee after Rep. Adriano Espaillat, D-N.Y., pressed her on the issue of undocumented students. "It's a local community decision and again I refer to the fact that we have laws and we also are compassionate and I urge this body to do its...

    Taxpayers may be surprised to know that, prior to the enactment of the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA), under certain conditions illegal aliens or undocumented immigrants could be claimed as a dependent on individual tax returns, which also allowed the taxpayers to claim various tax credits. Section 10 of the TCJA has repealed the old law, making it now impossible to claim this dependency deduction. The law does still allow individuals to claim qualifying aliens for certain tax credits. There are tax preparer due diligence requirements for some of these tax credits, and a new provision in...
