    Judicial Watch: Feds’ Bulletin Describes Threat of Imminent Terrorist Attack on Southern Border By Andrew C. McCarthy August 29, 2014 For those of us who’ve been raising alarms about both the jihadist threat and the national-security vulnerability created by the Obama administration’s non-enforcement of the immigration laws, this is not a surprise — particularly less than two weeks before September 11. But it is nonetheless jarring to read. Judicial Watch has just put out this statement: Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or...

    McALLEN, Texas (AP) -- A Border Patrol agent pursuing a group of immigrants in a wooded area near the Texas-Mexico border on Friday fired several shots at an armed man who later identified himself as a militia member. Border Patrol spokesman Omar Zamora said agents had been chasing a group of immigrants east of Brownsville Friday afternoon when an agent saw a man holding a gun near the Rio Grande. The agent fired four shots, but did not hit the man. The man then dropped his gun and identified himself as a member of a militia. Zamora said no other...

    California Democratic State Senator Ricardo Lara of Long Beach, CA hailed the passage of SB-1159, lifting citizenship requirements to the state's Business and Professions code. The bill first proposed by the California Democrat in February of this year, will allow illegal aliens to obtain all professional licenses, including the practice of medicine. Senator Lara, long tied to Latino activist groups long-cited for racist attitudes and rhetoric against white, black and Asian Americans, celebrated the passage with an announcement on Twitter. The bill is largely a "red pen" measure in which Lara and his allies in Sacramento simply amending current California...

    As the Left is pushing amnesty like never before, and illegal aliens are staging regular protests at ICE locations, illegal aliens are also getting more brazen on our Southern border. Attacks against our border agents are way up, but this weekend’s move was unprecedented, as Mexican illegals coordinated a violent confrontation against outmanned agents. A crowd of more than 150 illegals pelted Border Patrol agents with rocks and bottles — injuring several agents — as they tried to cross into the U.S. illegally in the San Diego sector, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The incident happened Sunday in...

Marco Rubio (R-FL) in an interview with Breitbart News, citing his desire to address immigration in a government spending bill to argue he's thirsting for a government shutdown. Wasserman Schultz's remarks, made on a conference call with reporters convened with the purpose of bashing Rubio, come as White House press secretary Josh Earnest used similar rhetoric in a briefing with reporters Wednesday. In the interview, Rubio said Congress may seek to address a unilateral amnesty by Obama in an upcoming spending bill. “There will have to be...

"This is the other Mexico," Peña Nieto reportedly "said of the United States, which is property to an estimated 11 million Mexican immigrants," according to the Los Angeles Times.

The popular sheriff says President Obama is “rewarding criminals.” Our country is under attack. And Barack Obama is the aggressor. That’s right.

    First, the President should take swift action to ensure that migrant children with parents or other immediate relatives in the U.S. are not torn away from their families and sent back to Central America. This year, more than 30,000 children have been released into the custody of sponsors, who are often their parents or relatives. But if a child is ultimately unable to secure asylum or other relief, she will nevertheless be deported. This policy is morally misguided. -snip The amount of foreign aid that we currently provide to Central America is paltry. According to the government’s website ForeignAssistance.gov, U.S....

  • Poll: Voters Want Immigration 'Pause,' More Enforcement, Preference Given to US Workers(Blockbuster)

    A blockbuster new poll obtained by Breitbart News reveals that a majority of likely voters want to push the pause button on massive immigration, which allowed legal immigrants a chance to more fully assimilate while the middle class expanded as wages increased. As President Barack Obama considers giving more guest-worker permits to companies that have laid off American workers and granting temporary work permits and executive amnesty to millions of more illegal immigrants, a comprehensive survey found that a majority of likely voters want even fewer legal immigrants. The poll found that "half of Americans age 65 and over" and...

Then out of the darkness emerged seven more armed men in fatigues.

Only later did they learn that the men belonged to the Texas Militia, a group that dresses like a SWAT team and carries weapons but has...

    The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) quietly changed regulations to allow more undocumented immigrants to keep their taxpayer status through a program that is rife with fraud and abuse, and to delay deactivation of immigrant taxpayer status until 2016. The IRS now prevents peoples’ Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) from automatically expiring after five years as previously mandated. Now immigrants can keep their ITIN so long as they pay taxes at least once in a five-year period.

Approval on foreign policy, an area where this administration polled somewhat strongly, fell to 36 percent among Americans. Regarding the economy, Carol Lee of the Wall Street Journal said earlier this morning on MSNBC’s Morning Joe that “there’s a total...
