    Daily Journal (Missouri) ^ | 10/12/2017 | Kevin R. Jenkins
    Representatives from Missouri Secretary of State Jay Ashcroft's office attended the Tuesday morning St. Francois County Commission meeting to briefly go over the state's new Show It 2 Vote program. Brandon Alexander and Chrissy Peters, directors of election, were introduced to the commission and those in the gallery by County Clerk Mark Hedrick. "We're just going to talk to you real quick about the changes under Missouri's new voter ID law," Alexander said. "Last November, 63 percent of Missourians voted for photo ID to go into effect and we're here to talk about the implementing legislation that puts that into...

    A previously deported illegal alien received a two-year state jail sentence after killing a Texas volunteer firefighter and two of his children in a 2016 car crash. The criminal alien pleaded guilty to a single count of criminally negligent homicide. His actions separated the victim’s family, leaving a mother to raise the remaining four children alone. Margarito Quintero Rosales fell asleep at the wheel and crossed the center line of the highway, striking a vehicle driven by Collin County volunteer firefighter Captain Peter Hacking, Breitbart Texas reported in April 2016. Quintero also killed Hacking’s four-year-old daughter, Ellie, and his...
  • California becomes 'sanctuary state' as Gov. Brown defies Trump administration

    California became a “sanctuary state” on Thursday as Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation protecting illegal immigrants in defiance of the Trump administration. The bill, approved by the state’s legislature last month, bars police from asking people about their immigration status or participating in federal immigration enforcement activities in most cases starting Jan. 1. California is home to an estimated 2.3 million illegal immigrants. In a written statement, Brown stressed that the law would not prohibit federal immigration officials from doing their jobs and would allow sheriffs to grant federal agents access to jails. But he said it prevents the...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 9/30/2017 | Henry Rodgers and Will Racke
    A pair of Republican senators are marketing their bill to legalize the beneficiaries of an executive amnesty program as a tougher alternative to a competing Democratic proposal, but immigration skeptics say the bills are hardly different in substance. Known as the “Succeed Act,” the GOP bill would give legal status to younger illegal immigrants covered under the now-cancelled Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. It requires applicants to meet strict education or work requirements to be eligible for a green card and lays out a 15-year path to citizenship — 10 years in a conditional status period and then...
  • Report: Illegal Immigration Costs Taxpayers $135 Billion Annually, $8,075 Per Alien

    National Economics Editorial ^ | September 27, 2017 | Editorial Staff
    According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform’s (FAIR) 2017 report, illegal immigrants, and their children, cost American taxpayers $135 billion annually—the most in this nation’s history. These costs are only partially offset by taxes, which total a mere $19 billion. Therefore, the next cost of illegal immigrants to taxpayers is $116 billion annually. This estimate is similar to those found by the National Economics Editorial.

    Police arrested an illegal alien after he allegedly broke into a Trenton, New Jersey, home and sexually assaulted a 6-year-old girl. Edgar Mendoza, a 32-year-old illegal alien from Guatemala, allegedly broke into a family’s home, theTrentonian reported, gaining access to the 6-year-old girl’s bedroom. He got into bed with the little girl before sexually assaulting her, according to the Trenton Police Department. The father of the young girl soon entered the bedroom and found the illegal alien in bed with his daughter, prompting Mendoza to quickly jump out of the second-story window from the child’s bedroom. “The people in the residence...

    A radical group linked to rogue billionaire George Soros has been providing scripts containing anti-Trump talking points for constituents to read aloud during congressional town hall meetings. One of the scripts distributed by the Revolutionary Love Project encourages town hall participants meeting with their member of Congress to accuse the Trump administration of – wait for it – “xenophobia, racism, and Islamophobia.” Constituents are urged to use those precise words to “forcefully condemn” President Trump’s immigration and border security initiatives, Aaron Klein reports at Breitbart News. Information about the scripts came as leaked audio from anti-Trump activists associated with the...

    All illegals should be deported including DACA. Before judging Trump, envision what would happen once mass deportations started. Nightly videos of tearful Joey or sheepish Maria handcuffed with crocodile tears and begging to stay. Trump would be neutered because neither party supports upholding the law. Moderate voters would jump ship. And all politicians would finally have the justification they've been seeking to never work with Trump on anything for the next 3 years. Republicans have proven they will not move legislation already. For those believing Trump is a dupe based on daily tested and measured propaganda, they probably also believe...
  • House Agrees To $1.6 Billion For Border Wall

    The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill Thursday that will provide $1.2 trillion to fund the government past Sept. 30, and will allocate $1.6 billion towards President Donald Trump’s border wall. The legislation gives $658.1 billion to the Department of Defense, $44.3 billion for the Department of Homeland Security and allocates the rest of the money towards other federal agencies. The bill lops all 12 annual spending bills into two one piece of legislation. If Congress failed to act by the Sept. 30 deadline, portions of the government would be forced to shut down and all non-essential government employees...

    llegal immigration across the southwest border has doubled in the last four months, according to new government data that suggests the early gains of President Trump’s tenure are wearing off. More than 30,000 illegal immigrants were nabbed in August, up 22 percent compared to July and up nearly 100 percent compared to April, when fewer than 16,000 illegal immigrants were arrested by the Border Patrol or stopped at ports of entry by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers. The numbers are still lower than they were a year before under Mr. Obama, but the gains Mr. Trump made in his...

    A proposed bill would still prohibit state and local police in California from asking about people's immigration status or enforcing federal immigration lawsCalifornia Gov. Jerry Brown and the state Senate leader said Monday they've agreed to changes in proposed legislation that would further restrict interactions between law enforcement officers and federal immigration agents. The agreement came on the same day the state sued the Trump administration over its decision to end a program that shields young immigrants from deportation. Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, D-Los Angeles, agreed to changes demanded by Brown following fierce opposition from sheriffs and...
  • A Chance for Congress to Get its Mojo Back

    When President Trump last week started a six-month countdown clock to end his predecessor's executive order protecting immigrants who were brought illegally to America when they were children, the denunciations came fast, furious, and fevered. Angry outrage has become the standard reaction to almost everything Trump says and does, often with reason. But on the issue of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, that fury is misplaced. Trump has created an opening that should gladden conservatives and liberals alike — one that members of Congress on both sides of the aisle should exploit.For years, legislators have allowed presidents to...

    FORT WORTH, Texas — Jaime Carrillo emerges from his faded pink house wearing blue jeans, boots, and a black cowboy hat. After a long day at work laying cement for city streets, he is ready for a second shift — this time as a volunteer for the Fort Worth Police Department. He straps a walkie-talkie to his collar, slaps a “Citizens on Patrol” sticker on the side of his blue Nissan Sentra, and settles in the driver’s seat, hands gripping the steering wheel decorated with his daughter’s Hello Kitty decals. “Tigre, Tigre,” Carrillo calls into the radio, addressing his partner....

    DACA has long been seen by those vociferously opposed to illegal immigration as Obama’s greatest betrayal of the American people—it is de facto amnesty. For those not familiar with DACA, here is the run-down: DACA was an executive order signed by President Obama in June 2012 that allowed all illegal aliens who arrived in America before they were aged 16 to apply for legal work permits, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, and made them eligible for earned income tax credits. Enrollment must be renewed every two years. Since 2012, nearly 800,000 illegal aliens have taken advantage of DACA. Most of...

    The Atlantic ^ | July/August 2017 | Peter Beinart
    The myth, which liberals like myself find tempting, is that only the right has changed. In June 2015, we tell ourselves, Donald Trump rode down his golden escalator and pretty soon nativism, long a feature of conservative politics, had engulfed it. But that’s not the full story. If the right has grown more nationalistic, the left has grown less so. A decade ago, liberals publicly questioned immigration in ways that would shock many progressives today. In 2005, a left-leaning blogger wrote, “Illegal immigration wreaks havoc economically, socially, and culturally; makes a mockery of the rule of law; and is disgraceful...

    More than three-quarters of Americans surveyed think that beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program should be allowed to stay in the United States, according to a Morning Consult/Politico poll. Seventy-six percent of respondents said the government should allow immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children to remain. 58 percent of that 76 percent believe they should be able to become citizens if they meet certain requirements, while 18 percent said they should be allowed to become legal residents. Only 15 percent of respondents said such immigrants — commonly called "Dreamers" — should be deported, the...

    In his first extensive interview since leaving the Trump administration, former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is speaking out about President Trump's decision to end the DACA program. The Obama-era policy protects nearly 800,000 undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children from deportation. Bannon spoke to Charlie Rose in an interview that will air this Sunday, Sept. 10, on "60 Minutes." Steve Bannon: Look, what he did on DACA the other day. Okay, I don't agree with that DACA decision, but I understand how he struggled with it, I understand how he's giving the possibility of a...

    Whenever a Republican wants to move forward — you know, pass some legislation or even enforce the law as already written, they always, always, ALWAYS have to run through a mainstream media propaganda gauntlet dedicated to the status quo, loyal only to the Democrat cause and by extension opposed to anything resembling progress. Obamacare is an objective disaster; nonetheless, the media fights tooth and nail to save it. Our tax code is a backwards, prosperity-stifling haven for corporatist special interests; nonetheless, the media will do everything in its power to ensure not a single word is altered. Then there is...

    As the decision nears regarding the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive action by President Obama, one question has never been asked or answered by the activists or media supporting them: why is the law against illegal immigration being blamed and not the illegal alien parents who brought them to the United States? This is something "parents with DACA" should have wrestled with BEFORE they decided to violate the United States' sovereign border because they wanted to, assumed they were wanted her, and shortsightedly put their children in the legal limbo they find themselves in today.
