    TUCSON, Arizona — Sinaloa Cartel-linked smugglers and migrants are growing more violent against U.S. Border Patrol agents in the Tucson sector as penalties for their crimes stiffen. Realizing that being caught now means almost certain prosecution and incarceration, the smugglers and migrants are increasingly becoming violent with Border Patrol agents in remote border regions in efforts to escape and evade justice.

    3News confirmed Wednesday that Municipal Court Judge Young Min Burkett was placed on unpaid administrative leave by City Council after they discovered that she is not a U.S. citizen.

  • 1 In 5 California Students Is An Illegal Immigrant Or Anchor Baby...$17.4 Billion To Educate

    "Although California’s state budget allocates $88.3 billion for K-12 education ($51.6 billion state dollars, the rest is local and federal money), California’s public schools are struggling. California not only has one of the highest student-to-teacher ratios in the country—35% above the national average—but per-pupil spending has been decreasing steadily in recent years. In fact, a recent study ranked California’s K-12 public education system as the 37th worst in the Union, in terms of educational quality—and 49th in terms of school safety. Essentially, California’s public schools are bad and dangerous. This is a serious problem: it hurts our kids, and our...
  • Baltimore State’s Attorney Tells Prosecutors To Ease Off Illegal Immigrants

    04/29/2017 9:10:00 AM PDT · by ColdOne · 53 replies ^ | 4/28/17 | Will Racke
    The Baltimore State’s Attorney’s Office wants prosecutors to reconsider charging illegal immigrants with non-violent crimes if they believe doing so will trigger “collateral consequences” that lead to deportation. Chief Deputy State’s Attorney Michael Schatzow told his staff that tough immigration enforcement policies under the Trump administration increase the likelihood that federal authorities will target illegal immigrants convicted of minor offenses. The Justice Department’s deportation efforts “have increased the potential collateral consequences to certain immigrants of minor, non-violent criminal conduct,” Schatzow wrote in a memo obtained Thursday by the Baltimore Sun.

    Surprise! One hundred days in and the MSM has declared Trump’s first quarter a complete disaster. This is my shocked face, Rick.Although to be fair, they did that before he was even inaugurated. I leave it to others to provide the 100 Days of Trump analysis – Charlie Martin’s is quite good especially given that he was not Trump’s #1 fan in the beginning, having tweeted just before the election “My worst fears are being realized: One of them is going to win.” And the Gateway Pundit claims to have the complete list of accomplishments.As far as I’m concerned if...
  • Sessions: Improper Tax Credit Payments to ‘Mostly Mexicans’ Could Fund Border Wall

    Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions said President Donald Trump’s proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall could be paid for with improperly paid tax credits that go to “mostly Mexicans.” ... SESSIONS: The Department of Treasury, several years ago, under the Obama administration, said that if you change the regulations and enforced it properly, you would save up to $4 billion a year. There are other things that we can do at the border to create revenue that would pay for the wall. There’s no doubt about that. STEPHANOPOULOS: But in your discussions with your counterparts in Mexico, they...

    A fight over whether to fund a wall at the U.S.-Mexico border could shut down the government next week. Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said on Thursday that money for President Trump's proposed border wall must be part of the spending bill Congress must pass by April 28 to avoid a shutdown of the federal government. Democrats, however, aren't going for it. The former South Carolina congressman said in an interview with the Associated Press that the wall is a "tremendous priority" for the Trump administration and will be a top request on the White House wish...

    The Oakland City Council voted unanimously this week on a resolution that asks cities based there to create "sanctuary workplaces" for immigrant workers they may employ. The resolution asks businesses to abide by the resolution, which “calls upon employers to establish sanctuary workplaces, where workers are respected and not threatened or discriminated against based on their immigration status.” The issue is a particularly fraught one in industries long reliant on immigrant labor, such as the service industry, manufacturing and construction.. The resolution was written as a way to protect workers who may be worried about an increased crackdown on immigrant...

    President Donald Trump has won the first major battle in his war on illegal immigration and he did it without building his wall. The victory was announced last week by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which released figures showing a 93% drop since December of parents and children caught trying to cross the Mexico border illegally. In December, 16,000 parents and children were apprehended; in March, a month in which immigration typically increases because of temperate weather, the number was just over 1,100. It was a remarkable decline – steeper than the 72% drop in overall apprehensions – but...

    National Economics Editorial ^ | April 7, 2017 | Dylan Scott
    Illegal immigrants, and their children, cost Texans a net $12.36 billion a year. That works out to roughly $6,000 per alien. "Of this, $10.03 billion came out of taxpayer pockets. Given that Texas’s biennial budget for 2016-2017 was 209.4 billion this means that illegal immigrants eat up 9.6% of their budget ended up being spent spent on illegal immigrants. Let’s look at it another way: for every $9 Texas spends on its citizens, it spends $1 on illegal aliens."

    The elite enclave of Malibu, California appears to have been the target of a ring-wing prank. Official-looking signs were set up at the city limits on Tuesday, boasting about the town's new status as an 'OFFICIAL SANCTUARY CITY'. But drivers who looked closer saw that not all was as it seemed. Both signs had taglines criticizing the picture-perfect veneer of the wealth Los Angeles suburb. 'Cheap nannies and gardeners make Malibu great! (Boyle Heights not so much)' one sign read, referring to a predominately Latino neighborhood in LA. The other stated: 'Because our beach community needs cheap labor, dude.' City...

    As the issue of illegal and unconstitutional sanctuary cities is taking center stage in American politics, a recent report from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency is not only demonstrating that those who say that sanctuary cities don't create a dangerous atmosphere for their communities are wrong, but the ICE report names the biggest offending cities. "Pursuant to section 9(b) of Executive Order 13768, Enhancing Public Safety in the Interior of the United States, and section H of the Secretary of Homeland Security’s subsequent implementation memo, Enforcement of the Immigration Laws to Serve the National Interest, U.S. Immigration and Customs...

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel defied President Donald Trump and US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) back in November stating that illegal aliens had a home in Chicago. Now, he is taking things a step further.  In the wake of Attorney General Jeff Sessions'  warning that sanctuary cities, like Chicago, could lose taxpayer money that is funneled through bureaucracy via the central government for harboring illegal immigrants, the mayor has decided to push for a new plan to create an identification card that would specifically be used to make sure illegal aliens in the city could get welfare benefits with minimal...

    A Democrat state lawmaker in Massachusetts has been caught tipping off illegals – many of whom are violent street gang members, child sex offenders and drug traffickers – to imminent Immigration and Customs Enforcement raids Tuesday, even telling criminal targets not to open their doors, to stay silent, to refuse to sign anything and to “fight back” with an attorney. An Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman suggested to WND that the lawmaker is “doing a disservice to the community” and “endangering public safety” with her statements. Massachusetts State Rep. Michelle DuBois, a Democrat representing the 10th Plymouth District, warned illegals...
