    Federal prosectors argued at a hearing in November that Gilberto Hernandez-Ordunez should be locked up before trial, noting he faced decades in prison on a cocaine charge and was likely to flee to Mexico because he was in the U.S. illegally. Federal law presumes someone like Hernandez-Ordunez, who was found with 15 kilograms of cocaine brought to Milwaukee sealed in metal elevator parts. U.S. Magistrate Judge William Duffin saw the case differently. He released the 34-year-old on a signature bond with no electronic monitoring, noting he had no criminal history, was employed and had strong family ties to Milwaukee. Now,...

First question that we have from Gregory: "This time about a year ago, General Powell, you were in a feud with former Vice President Cheney, with Rush Limbaugh about the nature of the Republican Party, and this is what you said in May of 2009: 'Rush Limbaugh says, "Get out of the room."'

    The interview with Univision was in Spanish- Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) told Univision yesterday that legalization of illegal immigrants will come first and then new border security measures. The Examiner reported: In a Spanish-language interview Sunday with the network Univision, Sen. Marco Rubio, the leading Republican on the Gang of Eight comprehensive immigration reform group, made his strongest statement yet that legalization of the nation's estimated 11 million illegal immigrants must happen before any new border security or internal enforcement measures are in place, and will in no way be conditional on any security requirements. "Let's be clear," Rubio said....

    Thank you Donald Trump for telling the truth with courage. When others feared being called names by the politically correct, Trump got out there and said in no uncertain terms that HE WOULD BUILD A WALL! This is one of the major reasons why so many people love him. Millions of Americans have been harmed by illegal immigration and others have learned about it and sought to get the message out over the years only to be suppressed and smothered by the politically correct establishment. Why is there a huge heroin problem in this country today? Mexico. Most of the...

    Bernie Sanders allegedly told a group of Latino activists and politicians in Chicago on Christmas Eve in a closed meeting that as president he would do an end-run around Congress and grant amnesty and then a path to citizenship to millions of illegal aliens in the U.S. In 2013, Senator Sanders voted for the comprehensive immigration reform bill that passed the U.S. Senate but was unable to clear the House. Sanders, an independent socialist from Vermont, is running for president as a Democrat and reportedly trails front-runner Hillary Clinton among Hispanic voters based on polling data.

    Townhall.com ^ | December 24, 2015 | Victor Davis Hanson
    The Roman philosopher and statesman Cicero insisted that gratitude was "the parent of all the other virtues." Cicero did not define gratitude as Mafia-like loyalty or mutual back-scratching. He was not referring to a pop socialism where all supposedly owe their successes to the government. Instead, gratitude is proof of humility and offers perspective. It is an appreciation for others, often now dead, who have helped to make us what we are. Without it, we are narcissists and self-absorbed amnesiacs. Unfortunately, our modern "me" generation has forgotten gratitude and replaced it with the art of victimization. Contemporary Americans prefer blaming...

    Mexico's Foreign Secretary Claudia Ruiz Massieu said the U.S. should “embrace migration as an opportunity,” arguing that migrants are wrongly being portrayed as “security concerns.” “These narratives are simply unsustainable and these narratives sell among some audiences due to misinformation about the impact of migration,” Ruiz Massieu said at a Migration Policy Institute event. 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...

    There is a new kind of technology out there -- the automatic plate reader. Installed in a police car, it can currently auto-scan an average of 700 license plates-per-hour. That will continue to improve. And it red-flags every dirty plate in sight. Ohio already uses it, but Ohio [for example] customized its system to ignore petty crimes. That is how powerful it is -- APR must be programmed to ignore the 'small stuff'. Even if a criminal switches plates, technology could easily fix that problem, such as a scanning bar and ID tag on the dashboard. They would need to...

    The Obama administration cannot be sure of the whereabouts of thousands of foreigners in the U.S. who had their visas revoked over terror concerns and other reasons, a State Department official acknowledged Thursday. The admission, made at a House oversight hearing examining immigrant vetting in the wake of major terror attacks, drew a sharp rebuke from the committee chairman. “You don’t have a clue do you?” Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, told Michele Thoren Bond, assistant secretary for the Bureau of Consular Affairs.

The abuse was first reported to a Woodbury school teacher and an investigation was launched, according to officials. Juan Campos-Morales, 33, was then arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a child. He is being held in the Salem County Jail on default of $250,000 bail. Federal immigration authorities say Campos-Morales is a Guatemalan native who they believe was living in the United States illegally.

The vehicle was painted to look like a Border Patrol SUV. After pulling the car over, the driver was arrested and the agent discovered 12 illegal aliens in the back.

    The best part is when she asks the obvious follow-up -- is a path to legalization "amnesty"? -- and he won't even make eye contact. There's a spectrum of answers to this question on the right, of course: 1. Amnesty is citizenship without preconditions. That's the strictest definition, and naturally the one preferred by Beltway Republicans like Marco Rubio in his Gang of Eight days. (Marco Rubio circa 2010 had a different view.) As long as you're forcing illegals to jump through some sort of hoop, be it learning English, paying back taxes, going to the back of the line,...

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 Southwest border has broken open in recent weeks, with non-Mexicans — and illegal immigrant children in particular — crossing at a record rate in October, according to Border Patrol statistics that suggest the administration’s victory lap earlier this year was premature.Nearly 5,000 unaccompanied children were caught in October, and nearly 3,000 more had been caught in the first half of November — a record pace for those months — and it signals just how closely smuggling cartels and would-be illegal immigrants themselves are paying attention to lax enforcement in the U.S.Worse yet, the increases are borderwide, with every one...

    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. See "U.S. deportations of immigrants reach record high in 2013" at http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2014/10/02/u-s-deportations-of-immigrants-reach-record-high-in-2013/

    In broader terms, Senators Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), both now competing for the Republican presidential nomination, seemed solidly defined on opposite ends of the political battle over immigration. Cruz was seen as the hardliner, Rubio the appeaser tied to the now infamous 2013 Gang of Eight legislation. With the two Senators headed for a one-on-one battle for the nomination in the view of many pundits, Rubio has gone on the attack, attempting to undermine Cruz’s immigration hardliner reputation. Rubio’s team released the video (below and in the Tweet below), claiming it shows Cruz supported the...

    SECURE THE BORDER, RESTORE THE RULE OF LAW, AND PROTECT AMERICANS "It's not that we don't know how to solve illegal immigration. What is missing is the political will to get it done. And, as president, I will get it done. We will secure the borders." - Ted CruzSummaryWe have a serious immigration problem in America. The American people understand that we must reverse the policies that invite criminals and terrorists to defy the law, allow manipulation of our generous immigration system, and reward illegal immigrants for their actions. Sadly, while the Obama Administration ignores our immigration laws and abuses...

    There's fresh evidence here of the unthinkable: Florida's biggest Republican stars, former governor Jeb Bush and Sen. Marco Rubio, run the risk of losing their state's winner-take-all primary next year to an out-of-state contender. A loss in their home state could force both Bush and Rubio out of the presidential race after March 15, when Florida and three other states will hold the first winner-take-all primaries.

    Hillary Clinton has a word for Donald Trump's plan to deport 11 million people from the country: No. The Democratic presidential candidate blasted Trump's call for a "deportation force" on Wednesday, calling it "absurd." "The idea of tracking down and deporting 11 million people is absurd, inhumane, and un-American. No, Trump. -H" Clinton tweeted, quoting a New York Times reporter's tweet on Trump's comments made earlier in the morning on MSNBC.
