  • WATCH: Donald Trump and "The Snake" (PBS Frontline documentary)

    “I saved you, I saved you, I saved you,” cried that woman. “And you’ve bit me, heavens why? You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die.” “Oh shut up, silly woman,” said the reptile with a grin. “You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in.” Trump’s embrace of that comparison kicks off Zero Tolerance, a FRONTLINE documentary premiering Tuesday, Oct. 22, that investigates how the president turned anti-immigration fervor into a powerful political weapon. The film’s opening moments depict Trump’s use of “The Snake” in such a way that it’s never...

    In an article in the Wall Street Journal, on October 5, 2001, Francis Fukuyama declared that his "end of history" thesis remains valid twelve years after he first presented it shortly before the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Fukuyama’s core argument was that after the defeat of Communism and National Socialism, no serious ideological competitor to Western-style liberal democracy was likely to emerge in the future. Thus, in terms of political philosophy, liberal democracy is the end of the evolutionary process. To be sure, there will be wars and terrorism, but no alternative ideology with a universal appeal...

    FULL TITLE: The First Illegal Alien To Commit A North American Terrorist Attack Is On Trial, But Don’t Expect The Media To Cover It Trump, after all the media ridicule, was correct in saying that potential terrorists have illegally crossed the United States' southern border. Abdulahi Hasan Sharif of Somalia did. And it could happen again. Many who have professionally worried, as did former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, that violent jihadists might illegally cross the United States’ southern border are often sanctimoniously challenged with this: “Name a single U.S. border-crossing immigrant asylum-seeker who ever committed a terrorist...

    An accused child rapist is on the run after being released from the Cumberland County Jail before ICE was able to take him into custody, but local authorities said they were following a judge's order. Some fear a feud between the state and the federal government could be putting public safety at risk. Leaders of Cumberland County are standing firm, saying the staff at the jail did everything right by following a judge's order to release accused rapist, Luciano Trejo-Dominguez last month. ICE officials blasted agencies on the local level last week over the release of inmates. "This isn't a...

    A county police department in Virginia announced Tuesday that one of their officers was suspended for turning an illegal alien over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after determining the individual had dodged a deportation hearing. Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin C. Roessler Jr. said the officer in question had a “lapse in judgment” when he called ICE about the illegal alien. “This is an unfortunate issue where the officer was confused,” Roessler said. “We have trained on this issue a lot. This is the first time we’ve had a lapse in judgment, and the officer is being punished.” The officer reportedly...

    House Democrats voted Thursday to fast-track an electronic medical records system that would serve illegal immigrants, something America’s veterans have been seeking for years. The House passed the bill on a largely party line vote of 230-184, American Military News reported. ... But critics wondered how adding more responsibilities to overworked Border Patrol officials would fix anything “I oppose this bill because it is poorly conceived, erroneously drafted and extremely risky,” Republican Rep. Jim Banks of Indiana said. ... Republican Rep. Mark Walker of North Carolina said in a statement that the Democratic bill was wrong on multiple levels. “Earlier...

    Now that socialist Bill de Blasio is washed out of the Democratic presidential election primaries, he's back to running New York City, doing the Sandinista thing , and banning free speech. The New York Post has identified his latest bid to make New York Cuba : It’s now against the law in New York City to threaten someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an “illegal alien” when motivated by hate. The restrictions — violations of which are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense — are outlined in a 29-page directive released...

The restrictions — violations of which are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense — are outlined in a 29-page directive released by City Hall’s Commission on Human Rights. “‘Alien’ — used in many laws to refer to a ‘noncitizen’ person — is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking them as ‘other,'” reads one passage of the memo. “The use of certain language,...

    U.S. Border Patrol agents caught a convicted child sex offender re-entering the country, U.S Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced Tuesday. Agents arrested five men in Tucson, Arizona, on Saturday night after the driver of the car attempted to evade a Border Patrol vehicle driving behind them, according to CBP. “During routine processing, it was revealed that one of the men who claimed to be a Mexican national was actually from El Salvador and had a criminal history, which included indecent liberties with a child and possession of a controlled substance,” the agency said in a news release on Tuesday. The Salvadoran man...

    In less than two months, there have been nine illegal immigrants charged with sex crimes in the Maryland sanctuary county. In what has become a disturbingly familiar story over the past couple months, another illegal alien has been charged with rape in the sanctuary jurisdiction of Montgomery County, Md. Wilder Hernandez-Nolasco, 21, of Silver Spring is accused of raping a six-year-old girl. He was apprehended and charged with the crime last week, and faces 155 years in prison if he is ultimately convicted of the heinous act. Hernandez-Nolasco, an illegal immigrant who is a Honduran national, reportedly threatened his child...

    2020 presidential candidate Julián Castro (D.) has one of the most liberal platforms in the field on immigration, but in 2013 he strongly backed Obama-era immigration policies and said the notion of "open borders" was too extreme to consider. Castro, the former Obama Housing and Urban Development chief, has set a far-left marker for the 2020 primary candidates on immigration. He has called for decriminalization of illegal border crossings, taking down some sections of existing border barriers, and providing free health care to illegal immigrants, the Texas Tribune reported. Castro attacked other candidates in the field as insufficiently progressive on the issue, including...

    If you want to know why Invasion USA continues apace, look no further than Big Migration, a lucrative racket so brazen that border-jumping migrants “can now offer Yelp-style reviews for attaining the finest in illegal alien–enabling services, not just in one’s choice of smuggling coyote, but in all the vast numbers of choices in NGOs offering shelters and services,” writes American Thinker’s Monica Showalter. So much for illegals being “in the shadows.” It’s just one of many outrages outlined in border security crusader Michelle Malkin’s new book Open Borders Inc: Who’s Funding America’s Destruction?, which was released Tuesday.

    This week the secretary of defense notified Congress that 11 “military construction” projects on the international border with Mexico are “necessary to support the use of the armed forces.” Not a single foot of “wall” is to be built with the $3.6 billion the secretary plans to divert from the Pentagon for this purpose. The 11 projects in four states are being funded in order to erect 174 miles of fencing. In fact, these are not military construction projects as the Pentagon and the Congress have historically defined them. But historic norms are falling every day. This tortured use of...

    A California sheriff is calling for immigration reform in his state after he says sanctuary city policies freed a violent illegal immigrant who went on to shoot a police officer and lead cops on a wild, high-speed chase. Guadalupe Lopez-Herrara, 51, was taken into custody Thursday, a day after the Merced County’s Sheriff’s Office says Lopez-Herrara shot a deputy attempting to arrest him for allegedly violating a restraining order, FOX26 reported. "This person is not a legal citizen within the United States," Merced Sheriff Van Warnke said at a press conference Thursday. "We had him in our custody in January of this year. And because of the folks in Sacramento limiting our ability to cooperate with ICE, we...

According to federal prosecutors, Mahmoud Youssef Kourani, 33, hosted meetings in his home in late 2002 where a guest speaker from Lebanon solicited donations for Hezbollah, which has been designated by the United States as a terrorist organization. The government didn't identify the speaker at the meetings. It said the money was intended for Hezbollah's orphans of martyrs program to benefit the families of those killed...

    SAN DIEGO -- A man was charged in federal court Tuesday in connection with the deaths of three Chinese migrants, including a mother and her 15-year-old son, who were found dead in the trunk of a car. Prosecutors said Neil Edwin Valera, a U.S. citizen who resides in Tijuana, smuggled the three migrants in his BMW and left them in the trunk of the car two days after he crossed into the United States through the San Ysidro Port of Entry in the same car. Valera, a truck driver from El Paso, Texas, was taken into custody at the downtown...

And who could blame you for thinking that you have deja vu while reading about this case? On Thursday, ABC 7's Kevin Lewis reported that police in Montgomery County, Maryland have arrested an illegal immigrant on molestation charges. This has now occurred again, and again, and again, and again, and again. That's right, this is now the sixth individual illegally in the country accused of sexual offenses in one Maryland county in the past month alone. And...
