    With Donald Trump’s rhetoric about Mexican rapists and border walls obviously on their minds, President Obama and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto made a public show of friendship and respect Wednesday.“All too often we’re hearing rhetoric that ignores the enormous contributions that have been made by Mexican Americans and the enormous strengths we draw from the relationship,” Mr. Obama said during a meeting with Mr. Pena Nieto at a summit in Ottawa, Canada. Mr. Obama said the U.S. “is not just a friend and neighbor of Mexico, but the very character of the United States is shaped by Mexican Americans...

    For all intent and purposes, these protesters asking Barack Obama for rights for "illegal" immigrants can be deported as well as the ones breaking the law, and I said it. I am against breaking families up too, send them all back, that will take care of everything. Where do these rioters and agitators get off stopping people from entering buildings and shutting down highways as a form of protesting these days? This is not a peaceable assembly as protected by the 1st Amendment. All should be arrested, thrown in jail and have to pay for all the lost time by...

    In an affidavit issued in federal court late last week, special agents detailed numerous firearms sales, attempted murders, huge amounts of drug sales and a gang that said it was ready to go to war with the Chelsea Police. In an early morning raid last Thursday, June 9, federal, state and local law enforcement cracked down on the East Side Money Gang (ES$G) and the 18th Street Gang in Chelsea – arresting at least 12 targeted members in Chelsea alone and leveling charges against 66 members of those two gangs and another gang in Jamaica Plain.

    In a break from previous votes on the issue, the House on Thursday rejected two GOP proposals to prevent the Obama administration from enlisting young illegal immigrants to serve in the military. Lawmakers voted down two measures offered by immigration hard-liners Reps. Steve King (R-Iowa) and Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) that would have prohibited the use of federal money to enlist young illegal immigrants who have been granted work permits under President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. More than 30 Republicans with more centrist views on immigration joined all Democrats in opposing the two amendments offered to a...

    Top Republican officials and donors are increasingly worried about the threat Donald Trump's attack on a judge's Mexican heritage could pose to their party's chances in November -- and about the GOP's ability to win Latino votes for many elections to come. Trump is under fire for repeatedly accusing U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is overseeing a lawsuit involving Trump University, of bias because of his Mexican heritage. Those concerns intensified Sunday after Trump said he would have the same concerns about the impartiality of a Muslim judge.

    The Supreme Court’s deliberations over President Barack Obama’s immigration order are putting that potential deportation relief on a collision course with Donald Trump’s deportation force. It’s still an open question whether the shorthanded court will ultimately determine that Obama has the authority to defer deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants. And until it gives its answer next month, his administration isn’t allowed to prepare for the possibility by hiring staff or creating forms. White House officials have told immigrant advocacy groups it’ll take about two months to get everything up and running — which would put the first applications for...

    Progressives and others on the radical Left are not very intelligent people. This is something we should be very thankful for, because were they actually competent, they would have completely overwhelmed the spineless, feckless Republican Party and established total control decades ago. As it stands, because progressives in the United States have so little foresight and self-control, they end up damaging their own cause through their own foolish behavior and inability to moderate themselves for the sake of more broadly appealing to the masses. This was shown most recently in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where a crowd of left-wing hooligans –...

After calling for it to extend across the entire 2,000-mile southern border, he more recently said half that length could be sufficient because of natural barriers. He has pegged the cost at $4 billion to $12 billion, most recently settling on around $10b.

    A federal judge in Texas on Thursday excoriated the Justice Department, demanding ethics classes for the department’s lawyers and ordering other sanctions for those who argued the case involving President Obama’s immigration executive actions. He also ordered the government to produce a list of about 100,000 immigrants who entered illegally and who are participating in a government program that protects them from deportation. In a blistering order, Judge Andrew S.

    Disease is the absence of health. Although many diseases still have the potential to end our life we have found ways to combat them and avoid the deadly pandemics of the past. History tells us between 75 and 200 million people died in Europe during the middle years of the 14th century. It took just six years to sweep across the continent and reduce the population by at least 1/3. Those who survived were emotionally and financially destroyed. Because of modern medicine and a clearer understanding of the how and why of epidemics we are at much less risk of...

But for the immigration benefits of being trafficked to apply, there must be coercion and exploitation; this...

    Congress may not be able to reform the immigration system, fix the broken tax code or even pass a budget. But it’s telling the Library of Congress how to label immigrants living in the country illegally. That’s how conservative Republicans are responding to a move by the library to drop the term “illegal alien” in favor of “noncitizens” or “unauthorized immigration” for cataloging and search purposes. The move came in response to a petition from the American Library Association to change immigration-related search terms to make them less judgmental. The library’s move, announced in a three-page statement last month, was...

    The Supreme Court on Monday seemed sharply divided during an extended argument over a challenge to President Obama’s plan that would shield millions of undocumented immigrants from deportation and allow them to work in the country legally. Much of the argument was technical, but the justices occasionally paused to acknowledge realities outside the courtroom. Justice Stephen G. Breyer said the case had enormous political implications. Justice Sonia Sotomayor said that about 11 million immigrants live “in the shadows.” “They’re here whether we want them or not,” Justice Sotomayor said. The case, brought by 26 states, may produce a significant ruling...

    The Library of Congress is drawing ire from conservatives for removing the terms "alien" and "illegal alien" from its materials and replacing it with "noncitizens." Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) has introduced the Stopping Partisan Policy at the Library of Congress Act to put an end to what she defines as a politically correct ploy.“This needless policy change by the Library of Congress embodies so much of what taxpayers find enraging about Washington," Black said in a statement Thursday. "By trading common-sense language for sanitized political-speak, they are caving to the whims of left-wing special interests and attempting to mask the grave threat that...

    News with a headline that says “XXXXXX covers Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman’” might not win any journalism awards or set the world on fire. The perennial cover band chesnut has been done to death, and has been destroyed by many untalented hands. Still, there’s nothing generic or bad about this news; in fact, let me assure you, you need to listen to this version of the song. The Warning is made up of three sisters from Monterrey: 14 year old guitarist and vocalist Daniela, 12 year old drummer Paulina, and 9 year old bass player Alejandra. They made this video last...

    ALBANY, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton announced Wednesday that she would create an Office of Immigrant Affairs if she was elected president. After receiving an endorsement from what some consider New York’s most powerful labor group, SEIU Local 1199, and and immigrants’ rights group, the former secretary of state said this office would build on what President Barack Obama has done with immigration. “I would create the first ever Office of Immigrant Affairs,” Clinton said. “It would build on the work of the Obama administration’s task force.” This comes after the New York Daily News editorial board...
  • Almost 6,000 refugee children went missing last year, says Germany

    Almost 6,000 refugee children and minors were reported missing in Germany last year, according to its interior ministry, amid growing concerns that traffickers and criminals are preying on thousands of vulnerable young people travelling amid the flow of refugees into Europe. The exact scale of the crisis is unclear, because rudimentary and overwhelmed registration systems mean Europe does not have a clear picture of the number of children arriving on its shores, or close tracking of their onward route. Some of those who vanish may never have registered, paranoid that officials will lock them up. Others may have been reunited...

    In 2009, when Associate Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote her first opinion as a member of the high court, she used the term "undocumented immigrant" to refer to persons who are in the United States illegally. It is believed to have been the first such usage in the history of the court, where the term "illegal immigrant" had previously been used. In an interview for last week's NPR program Latino USA, Justice Sotomayor explained her decision. She told host Maria Hinojosa: "Illegal immigrant" has a sense, I think, in people's minds, that immigrants are all criminals and criminals in...

    Mexico's government on Tuesday unexpectedly changed two of its top officials responsible for U.S. relations, citing concerns about an increasingly anti-Mexican climate across the border. Carlos Sada, previously the consul in Los Angeles, was named ambassador to the United States while Paulo Carreno, one of President Enrique Pena Nieto's communications chiefs, was appointed the deputy foreign minister for North America. Sada replaces Miguel Basanez Ebergeny who has only been in his position for seven months. Sada has 'broad experience in consular work and in the protection of the rights of Mexicans in North America,' the Mexican Foreign Ministry said in...

    My sources of information tell me that Mexican officials are literally "terrified" that they are going to have to deal with the class of people who have come over here during the last 20 years or so who have little or no hope in Mexico. They are well aware of the fact that the numbers are close to 30 million, not 12 million. Most of the illegals here are those who did not want to study in school or who are criminals (fairly small percentage of the total). Aside from the drug war, they have maintained some political stability by...

    Building more walls between the United States and Mexico will not boost border security, U.S. Sen. John Cornyn said Tuesday. The Texas Republican toured the Pharr-Reynosa International Bridge and visited Anzalduas Park during an all-day visit to the Rio Grande Valley. Cornyn also met with Mission Mayor Norberto "Beto" Salinas, McAllen Mayor Jim Darling, Superintendent of Bridges Rigo Villarreal and Chief Patrol Agent Manuel Padilla, who heads the Rio Grande Valley Sector. Cornyn brought Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-Louisiana, along for a firsthand look at trade and security issues. Asked about the border wall -- a hot topic during the Republican...
