    Apprehensions of migrant families have increased 150 percent over the same period in 2014 The number of unaccompanied children caught by Border Patrol has more than doubled The new flows come after a year of declines in illegal crossings across the southwest border MISSION, Texas -- The numbers of migrants crossing the Rio Grande illegally have risen sharply in recent weeks, replaying scenes from the influx of Central American children and families in South Texas last year. Once again, smugglers are bringing hundreds of women and children each day to the Mexican banks of the river and sending them across...
  • 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...

    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...

    Would a President Trump be ready to use his executive pen to stop the flood of illegal immigrants by building a fence, enforcing current immigration laws, and deporting criminal illegal aliens? We keep hearing that our current immigration system is broken and it must be overhauled to better serve the immigrants, especially the illegal ones. And in this process, it seems that immigration, whether legal or illegal, is not necessarily run in the best interest of the American people, but in the best interest of crony capitalists and the ruling elites.

    Here's a question an incisive debate moderator ought to ask Marco Rubio: are you happy Senators Sessions and Cruz helped defeat your Gang of 8 immigration bill? One of the more obscure yet destructive provisions of the Gang of 8 bill I wrote about in 2013 was section 3405 (page 693), which created an entire new pipeline for refugees. This bill would have concocted an unconditional right to immediate legal permanent resident status for any person in the world who declares himself "stateless." Had the bill passed in 2013, it would have given the Obama administration power to define who...

    Two of the suicide bombers who caused carnage in the Paris massacre are thought to have sneaked into France by posing as refugees from Syria. The disclosure, which came amid claims of French intelligence failures, inevitably raised new security concerns about Europe’s borders.

One of the attackers was last night named by French media as Mostefai Ismaël Omar, 29, from Courcouronnes, in Essonne.

    This is really interesting. If you look at the deportation stats when Bill Clinton was in office, it really is true that he deported well over 10 million people. If you do not believe the stats then you can go to the link provided to the DHS where it is all broken down there. And it really does look like Obama will deport 3 million by the time he leaves.

    The current intramural battle over immigration policy among GOP 2016 hopefuls, a most welcome and most necessary controversy, is a useful example of why the Senate is such a tough place from which to run for president. Few senators make it , only John F. Kennedy and Barack Obama in the last 60 years , and only after short Capitol Hill stints that yield thin voting records. The reason is clear: To be a good legislator and to move public opinion on important issues, a senator sometimes must make proposals that, taken out of context, can distort the senator's overarching...

This will be the last presidential election cycle in which the G.O.P., in its current form, has even a shot at winning the White House. And so the large question Republicans must ask themselves is: Are we as a party willing to champion the new America that is inexorably rising around us, or are we the receding roar of an old America that is never coming back? Within that large question the G.O.P. will have...

Many Swedes in Malmö have come to relish the city’s growing reputation as a suburb of Copenhagen, just half an hour away by train. It seemed to embody many dreams about the future: a continent where national borders would come to mean nothing. That dream was shattered at noon today.

    This is not the first time the US has dealt with an illegal immigration problem. Only last time it was dealt with in a decidedly swifter and sterner manner. The response, coordinated by President Dwight Eisenhower, resulted in nearly 3 million illegal immigrants being sent home. During his administration, Eisenhower became the first American president forced to deal with problems stemming from illegal immigration. Only, in Eisenhower s time the politically correct culture of liberal sensitivities had yet to emerge. There was not much in the way of sympathy for those who had crossed into the country illegally.

    ... Although Trump glibly describes "Operation Wetback" as moving undocumented immigrants "waaay south," this program was at best inhumane and at worst horrific. Back then, the government rounded up suspected undocumented immigrants and sent them deep into the Mexican interior, where they were abandoned with next to nothing. The transports across the border were reportedly "indescribable scenes of human misery and tragedy." In one instance, 88 deportees died from heat stroke in the desert. Other deportees were sent to the Mexican Gulf Coast by ship, in vessels described by historians as an "eighteenth century slave ship" or "penal hell ship."...

The 2-1 ruling by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals punctures Mr. Obama’s immigration plans and is the latest in a series of major court rulings putting limits on the president’s claims of expansive executive powers to enact his agenda without having to get congressional buy-in. In an opinion freighted with meaning for...

    Robert Rubin, president and CEO of Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute, says the federal government's decision to clamp down on the use of New Mexico driver's licenses to access federal facilities starting in January could potentially shut down his 600-employee business. He's not alone. "This could just be a disaster for a company like mine," said Bill Miera, president and CEO of the 143-employee engineering firm Fiore, which manages research and development contracts with Sandia National Laboratories and with the Air Force Research Laboratory at Kirtland Air Force Base. "If we couldn't get on base, we'd have to stop work, because...

    An illegal immigrant MS-13 gang member the Obama administration had released on bond committed an unprovoked attack on a sheriff's deputy, slugging the deputy as he worked on a traffic report while sitting in his car, the Frederick County, Md., sheriff's department said Friday. Jose Misael Reyes-Reyes, 18, had been arrested in May on weapons charges and in June on charges of malicious destruction of property, but federal immigration authorities had left him free on bond while he awaited a deportation hearing, the sheriff's office said. Given his age, Mr. Reyes-Reyes was potentially part of the recent surge of illegal...

    In a final push to ensure the "workplace rights" of illegal immigrants in the U.S., the Obama administration continues to sign pacts with foreign countries guaranteeing to protect their nationals from discrimination on the job. This month its Ecuador's turn and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the federal agency that enforces the nation's workplace discrimination laws, is sealing the deal. In past years the Department of Labor (DOL) has executed similar agreements with an assortment of countries, including Mexico, Nicaragua, Guatemala, El Salvador, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic and India. In fact, under Obama's first Labor Secretary, former California...

    Ben Carson has fallen into a “moral” trap on the question of offering citizenship to illegal aliens who are here working in jobs that could be filled by American workers. In his campaign material Carson asks, “Is it moral for us, for example, to take advantage of cheap labor from illegal immigrants while denying them citizenship? I’m sure you can tell from the way I phrased the question that I believe we have taken the moral low road on this issue. Some segments of our economy would virtually collapse without these undocumented workers–we all know that–yet we continue to harass...

    ust as a leaked internal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) document reveals Obama is planning yet another Executive Order to gut Congressional authority and overturn America’s immigration law, Marco Rubio and Jeb Bush have fallen behind Donald Trump thanks to their own amnesty betrayal of Floridians. “They have to go,” Trump has told his many large audiences about illegal aliens. Now he is telling Bloomberg News the real reason voters will not support Rubio, no matter how much our dishonest media try to foist him and Ben Carson on us. The Speaks-With-Forked-Tongue Hispanic Rubio told Univision’s Jorge Ramos earlier this...

    Nearly a year after the Obama administration launched a massive public relations campaign to dispel rumors of a free pass for immigrant families crossing the border illegally, internal intelligence files from the Homeland Security Department suggest that effort is failing. Hundreds of immigrant families caught illegally crossing the Mexican border between July and September told U.S. immigration agents they made the dangerous trip in part because they believed they would be permitted to stay in the United States and collect public benefits.

    Two nuclear research labs would require visitors to show passports or other forms of identification if New Mexico does not comply with tougher U.S. regulations for driver’s licenses, creating uncertainty in a state that grants IDs to immigrants regardless of their legal status. Los Alamos National Laboratory, the nation’s premier nuclear weapons lab, said late Wednesday that visitors would need U.S. passports for entry if the state does not start mandating proof of legal U.S. residency for driver’s license applicants, a requirement under the federal REAL ID Act. Sandia Labs also said they would need an alternative government-issued form of...

    U.S. Representative Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX)14% believes it is time to make the elimination of the legal term used to describe people from another country, Alien, from our law books. Castro compared the term that has been used for decades to describe the immigration status of people entering this country legally or illegally to the words lunatic and mentally retarded. Castro believes the term alien is used to dehumanize and ostracize people who are born elsewhere, according to a San Antonio Express report on Thursday. Regardless of status, immigrants to our nation are first and foremost human beings, said Castro,...

    Sen. Ted Cruz is trying for the second time this month to move a "Kate's law" bill, after the Senate failed to impose tougher penalties on illegal immigrants who re-enter the U.S. after being deported. The Texas Republican's new bill introduced Wednesday would impose a five-year minimum sentence on any illegal immigrant who re-enters the country. It's a response to the murder of Kate Steinle in San Francisco at the hands of an illegal immigrant. Cruz's second attempt comes after Senate Democrats prevented a broader bill to move ahead in the Senate this week. That bill included Kate's Law, but...

    The Obama administration is ordering the nations public schools to support illegal immigrant students, promote the presidents amnesty and embrace and value the diversity and cultural backgrounds of the foreigners receiving a free, American taxpayer-funded education. In a 63-page Guide for Success issued this month, the U.S. Department of Education directs teachers in the nations publicly funded schools to understand the cultural and educational backgrounds of their students and to model multicultural sensitivity. Teachers should also engage in self-reflection to address personal biases and increase multicultural competence, according to the new mandate that also orders the incorporation of diversity and...

    Demands accountability of the Obama Administration through legislation cracking down on sanctuary cities, criminal illegal aliens Watch the video WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today delivered a speech on the Senate floor citing the Obama Administration’s persistent negligence of immigration law enforcement and bolstering the Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act (S. 2146), of which he is a lead cosponsor, as a small step in the right direction. In addition to stripping certain federal funds from sanctuary jurisdictions, the legislation also incorporates critical elements of Kate’s Law, which Sen. Cruz introduced earlier this year, by imposing...
