    If you're a foreigner in this country without authorization, you may be a hardworking, upright and taxpaying person, but you live in daily terror of making a fatal misstep. Overlooking a broken taillight, being a witness to a crime, getting hit by a car while crossing the street -- minor misfortunes that attract the attention of police can bring exile, family breakup and misery. Yoli Navas, a college student in Boston, came to the United States from Venezuela at the age of 6. She was one of the lucky "Dreamers" spared by President Barack Obama's 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood...

    Earlier this week, President Obama made it clear that he will soon offer some form of limited amnesty to about five million foreign nationals who are currently living illegally in the United States. He will do so by issuing an executive order to federal officials who oversee immigration directing them to undertake a course of action that, if complied with individually by all persons whom he designates as eligible, will cause the federal government to remove the threat of deportation from those who meet the standards he will lay down. Can he legally do that? To address that question, we...

    Nearly 20 years ago, Pete Turner named his now-expanding restaurant chain. When thinking about what to call it, he eventually decided to name it after his father, “who had a rebellious streak” and was also named Pete. Thus, the name “Illegal Pete’s” was born. Now, with his seventh store set to open in Colorado, pro-immigration rights groups are calling on him to rename or close his stores, saying that the word “illegal” in “connection with a person’s name is derogatory and offensive.” Not only that, but the use of the word “illegal” is racist, according to those calling on Mr....

Among the biggest actions to be taken by the President: 4.5 million illegal immigrant children will be officially able to stay in the United States and not face any consequences. Immigrant and customs enforcement officers will get raises in order to boost morale. Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, would be increased.

    An election integrity watchdog group is suing the state of Maryland, alleging that it has discovered massive and ongoing fraudulent voting by non-U.S. citizens in one county. But because of the way that the non-citizens are able to cast votes in elections, the fraud is likely happening in every single county and subdivision across the state. The group believes that the illegal voting has been happening for years. The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that it compared how voters in Frederick County filled out jury duty statements compared with their voting records. The group’s investigation found that thousands of people...

    An election-watch group is suing Maryland over the alleged presence of noncitizens on the state’s voting rolls. The lawsuit, filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, asserts that individuals who opted out of jury duty because they were not legal U.S. residents have cast ballots in at least three Maryland elections. Based on the number of potential unqualified voters identified in Frederick County, up to 7 percent of Maryland’s registered voters could be illegal immigrants, according to estimates. “Their continued appearance on these lists makes it nearly impossible for Maryland law to prevent these declared noncitizens from casting votes...

    Like every other western nation, Australia has their own concerns about terrorist incursion and illegal immigration. They are sometimes perceived as having somewhat of an advantage in this area because they are an island nation, so there is no physical border fence to maintain. But they’ve got an incredibly huge coastline to control and smugglers frequently try to bring small boats ashore to deliver illegal immigrants. The government has put out a renewed message, letting foreigners know in no uncertain terms that the welcome mat is not out. Australian authorities have published a graphic campaign, seemingly aimed at deterring asylum...

The immigrants are then held hostage until money is wired into the gang members – usually around one to three thousand dollars. The local gang members grab up the illegal immigrants they find on the roadways or in the ranches of Brooks County,” said Congressman...

He said that California is "setting the pace" on immigration laws and mentioned bills he signed that gave driver's licenses to illegal immigrants, made California a sanctuary state (Trust Act), and granted in-state tuition to illegal immigrants (CA DREAM Act).

They are coming from extremist organizations such as Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund...

    Assemblyman V. Manuel Pérez unveiled an immigration resolution Friday at Coachella City Hall that he plans to introduce for California to meet the humanitarian challenges faced with tens of thousands of unaccompanied children arriving at the U.S. border. :snip: "They need due process, and if they are found to face a threat should they be returned to their home country, they should be seen and identified as refugees." :snip: Pérez said he always felt safe and never saw violence while visiting Panama, El Salvador and Guatemala, but he sensed a difference in the latter when it came to political corruption....

    Dr. Russell D. Moore of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention and Ronnie Floyd, the current president of the Southern Baptist Convention, have added some much needed moral clarity to the crisis at the border. They have gone to our southern border and seen what is not just a national security problem, but a humanitarian crisis. Ronnie Floyd notes that the Southern Baptist National Disaster Relief Ministry is no longer permitted to assist those who have come over the border. The Department of Health and Human Services is now only letting federal contractors come into...

    Gov. Rick Perry of Texas plans to order 1,000 National Guard troops to his state's border with Mexico in an effort to stem the tide of immigrants illegally entering from Central America, dispersing around the country once they've made it into Texas. Critics will call it a stunt and accuse Perry of showboating, but at least he is taking action, while President Obama, who took an oath to defend the country from all enemies foreign and domestic, drinks beer, plays pool and attends fundraisers as our borders are overrun. Enemies are more than adversary nations with weapons. An enemy can...

    Williams Guevara-Martinez was almost 17 when he left his home near San Salvador, El Salvador, and headed north with three other youth and a 30-something guide known as a “coyote.” Guevara’s older brother Adam, had paid the coyote thousands of dollars for the 2,000-mile trip, which took 12 days. Guevara traveled by foot and car, finally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in the back of a truck. Fifteen minutes later, immigration officials discovered his illegal entry and sent him to a Texas shelter. He was there 24 days before flying from Houston to Baltimore, where he was reunited with two brothers,...

    La Joya (KNVO) — It was a terrifying situation in a Texas border town as authorities exchanged gunfire with a murder suspect. Border patrol agents were under fire as they tried to arrest a man in La Joya, on the Rio Grande River near the Gulf of Mexico. Two law enforcement officers were shot, but both are expected to recover. Authorities said the man was wanted for a murder in Edinburg. He was also believed to be a member of the notorious "Texas Syndicate" prison gang. The gunman had barricaded himself in an apartment and fired at sheriff's deputies and...

    The Transportation Security Administration is strongly denying accusations that it has been allowing illegal immigrants to board American jetliners without proper identification. The National Border Patrol Council, a union representing thousands of Border Patrol agents, accused the TSA of letting illegals board airplanes with a “Notice to Appear” document instead of a passport or official government identification card. Union leaders said illegals were allowed to board jetliners without proper identification at airports in El Paso and Laredo, Texas. The story was first reported by Breitbart News. “This is the dream of every terrorist in the world,” Shawn Moran, vice president...

    In a recent confrontation between protesters against the illegal flood of unaccompanied children into the United States and counter-protests by some Hispanic group, one man from the latter group said angrily, "We are as good as you are!" One of the things that make the history of clashes over race or ethnicity such a history of tragedies around the world is that — regardless of whatever particular issue sets off these clashes — many people see the ultimate stakes as their worth as human beings. On that, there is no room for compromise, but only polarization. That is why playing...

    TECUN UMAN, Guatemala (AP) — The man-in-the-know nursed a late-morning beer at a bar near the Suchiate River that separates Guatemala from Mexico, and answered a question about his human smuggling business with a question: "Do you think a coyote is going to say he's a coyote?" Dressed as a migrant in shorts and sandals but speaking like an entrepreneur, he then described shipments of tens of thousands of dollars in human cargo from the slums of Honduras and highlands of Guatemala to cities across the United States. "It's business," he said, agreeing to speak to a reporter only if...

    "Perhaps the Catholic church would volunteer to pony up some cash for the illegals' care then? Hmm?" "Pope should stay out of it. Matter of civil laws, not church laws." "Thinking that the pope should want the illegals to go to Argentina to get better soccer players for World Cup." Those were just three Twitter responses I was tagged in, in response to a headline about Pope Francis calling so many of us out on our indifference. Based on some of the reactions, you would have thought Pope Francis himself was giving unaccompanied minors rides in his Popemobile into the...

    Human smugglers in Mexico routinely give young illegal immigrant girls birth control for their trip through Mexico. The odds are they will be raped.
