  • In a blow to Trump’s immigration agenda, federal judge blocks asylum ban for migrants

    Washington Post ^ | November 20, 2018 | Isaac Stanley-Becker .. Maria Sacchetti
    <p>A federal judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration from denying asylum to migrants who illegally cross into the United States, saying the policy likely violated federal law on asylum eligibility.</p> <p>The judge pointedly denied the claim that the president, by fiat, could give the manner of entry added legal weight as a determinant of asylum. He reasoned that the “interpretive guide” of United Nations compacts on asylum lent extra force to congressional requirements. The intent of Congress, Tigar wrote, was “unambiguous.”</p>
  • State, Local Cops May Not Make Immigration Arrests, NY Appeals Court Rules

    New York Law Journal ^ | 11/14/18 | Andrew Denney
    Nothing in New York law gives state and local law enforcement agencies the authority to detain inmates for U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement on immigration charges, a state appeals court said in a ruling aimed at a policy initiated by Suffolk County officials. The unanimous ruling by the Appellate Division, Second Department rejected the Suffolk County Sheriff’s Department’s policy of keeping inmates who are the subjects of ICE detention or deportation orders for up to 48 hours after the time that they normally would have been released and immediately notifying immigration authorities. While inmates are under the 48-hour immigration hold,...

    A heartless dad purposely drowned his two sons, who both had severe autism, by driving his car off a California pier — so he could cash in on a $6 million insurance policy, prosecutors said. Ali Elmezayen, 44, allegedly hatched the sick scheme two years before stomping on the gas of his Honda and sending it crashing into the Port of Los Angeles on April 9, 2015. “Witnesses heard the tires of the car screech loudly and saw the car accelerate before it flew off the edge of the wharf, crashed into the water and immediately sunk,” FBI agent Matthew...

    Newly released dashcam video shows the moments a police officer in Arkansas stared down the barrel of a gun during an intense shootout with an illegal immigrant suspect over the weekend. The Washington County Sheriff's Office said in a news release the incident happened Sunday, after County Corporal Brett Thompson tried to initiate a traffic stop around 12:43 p.m. in Tontitown, located just outside Fayetteville. The driver, 29-year-old Luis Cobos-Cenobio, didn't stop and the officer reportedly initiated a brief chase. After eventually pulling over, Cobos-Cenobio got out of his vehicle and began shooting at Thompson, officials said. The video released Tuesday shows...

    LAS VEGAS, Nevada — Retired Army Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn tells Breitbart News he thinks Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s “unbelievable victory” in the final presidential debate against his Democratic opponent was “exactly what we needed.” “I think this was an unbelievable victory for Trump,” Flynn, a top Trump surrogate, said in an exclusive interview. I think this was amazing. He was so on point, so on message. He gave very precise answers. You listen, for those that watched it tonight, you saw a robot-like script coming out of Hillary Clinton with no new ideas. No new ideas at all....

    Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney is directly responsible for destroying the life of an underage child who was brutally raped by an illegal alien from Mexico, thanks to the “sanctuary” policies he and his leftist cohorts are propagating in the “City of Brotherly Love.” During a recent episode of NRATV, available for viewing at Brighteon.com, host Dana Loesch discusses how Juan Ramon Vasquez, the perpetrator, shouldn’t have even been in the country, let alone allowed to roam the streets of Philadelphia looking for American children to sexually molest. “An illegal alien from Honduras, who was previously deported and who reentered illegally,...

    With the midterm elections all but over, President Trump looks to be returning to the agenda that got him elected…in a big way. Before all of the hustle and bustle of the 2018 election gave way to the absurd and downright nasty results that we’ve seen, the nation was staring down a massive and mobile situation in Mexico as a horde of up to 14,000 Central American migrants marched north toward Texas. Having already refused offers of asylum from the nation of Mexico, the caravan has insisted that they will attempt to reach the United States before seeking such political...

    Jewish Press ^ | November 8, 2018 | Rabbi Aaron I. Reichel
    When debating America’s response to illegal immigration, liberals sometimes remind us that the Torah states, “You shall love the stranger for you were strangers in the land of Egypt” (Deuteronomy 10:19). The Bible, though, must be read in context. Illegal immigrants who sneak into America are a far cry from the likes of Avraham Avinu or Yosef HaTzaddik. Our patriarchs generally brought prosperity to the lands to which they moved. Yosef even saved his adopted country from starvation. None of them relied on welfare or crowded hospital emergency rooms at the expense of the natives. Advertisement Avraham and Yosef also...

    In 2007, I went to the border in Nogales, Arizona to see for myself what was really going on at the border. What I found literally shocked me. I saw first-hand the “rape trees” where human traffickers display the undergarments of the women they’ve raped along the trail. I saw acres of desert literally laden with trash and debris. I witnessed a van of drug runners, pursued by border patrol, speeding right past the house of the family I was staying with. The most heart-wrenching part of my trip was the conversation I had with the mother from across the border who met...

    Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley confirmed Thursday afternoon there are serious and violent criminal elements traveling in multiple caravans headed toward the United States. "According to information obtained by my office, several members of the first caravan have significant criminal histories, including assault and sexual misconduct against a child, and membership in the MS-13 gang. Further, the Department of Homeland Security recently reported that several hundred members of the second caravan clashed with Mexican federal police throwing rocks, glass bottles, and even fireworks at Mexican officers in a seemingly criminal altercation," Grassley wrote in a letter to Homeland Security...

    We have an illegal alien horde approaching our southern border. No, we have multiple hordes approaching the border. With local police in Mexico unable to stop them, the closest caravan is 1,000 miles away from the border. The Trump administration has decided to deploy thousands of troops in hopes of preventing scores of illegal aliens from flooding into the country. It’s been slammed as a 2018 election ploy. For Secretary of Defense James Mattis, this isn’t a stunt. Yesterday, he shot down a reporter who made that insinuation during a presser with South Korea’s defense minister (via Fox News):Watch the latest video...

    President Trump dropped a "closing" ad for the 2018 midterm elections Wednesday night, and it's causing a firestorm in the media. The ad features footage of Luis Bracamontes, a convicted cop killer and illegal immigrant. The ad says Bracamontes "Killed our people!" The spot features footage of Bracamontes boasting of his killings and saying he'd like to kill more cops. 'Democrats let him into our country," the ad reads. "Democrats let him stay." The ad then shows footage from the migrant caravan heading north, and shows one man telling a Fox News reporter that he's hoping President Trump will grant...

    Migrants are the “lifeblood” of America, not Americans and their children, says former top Democrat Sen. Harry Reid. “Immigrants are the lifeblood of our nation,” Reid said, ignoring the 4 million Americans who turn 18 this year in a homeland with 260 million Americans, 34 million legal immigrants and at least 11 million illegal migrants. Migrants, he said, “are our power and our strength.” Reid made the claim as he tried to slam President Donald Trump’s call on Oct. for a reform of the birthright citizenship rules. Reid led the Senate Democrats until 2016. His elevation of migrants above Americans...

    Harry Reid on Wednesday said Donald Trump is "profoundly wrong" after the president quoted his 1993 position on revoking birthright citizenship in perhaps his harshest criticism of the president since leaving office... "... I(Harry) made a mistake" by proposing a bill to remove birthright citizenship from immigrants who entered the country illegally. In a speech on the Senate floor 25 years ago, Reid said "no sane country" would offer a "reward for being an illegal immigrant." Referring to that speech, Trump said Reid was correct "before he and the Democrats went insane and started with the Open Borders (which brings...

    Illegal immigration must be stopped. But businesses say aliens do work that US citizens/residents are not willing to do. What about allowing legal entry for legal work as guest workers? This would provide workers for businesses, but would not allow in gang members and evil idiots. I think in Europe they had that for a while and it worked. I think it might be worth to consider it here too, to keep out thousands of aliens, while helping businesses get workers.

    A York County-based fishing boat – the Captain Billy Haver – was 55 miles off the coast of Massachusetts a few weeks ago, dredging scallops from the sea. Then, seemingly out of the blue, a crew member started attacking his shipmates with a hammer. The vessel’s captain radioed the Coast Guard for help at 2 p.m. on an international emergency distress channel. “Mayday, mayday, mayday,” he said in a thick accent. “Can anybody hear me?” “We have a man gone crazy here on the boat, man,” the captain continued after hearing a reply. “One man, I don’t know if he’s...

    Ruth Gomez had been calling home to her mother in Honduras every evening, but it was a bittersweet experience. It was good to let her know she was safe, but it was painful too, to speak to her – and especially to her four-year-old son and seven-year-old daughter. Earlier this month, Ms Gomez and two of her brothers heard about the migrant caravan on television and decided on the spot to join. Now, they were preparing to spend the night in a small park overlooking the town of Pijijiapan, where they had put a white flag that fluttered in the cooling breeze and was...
