    Many Republican entertainers are clearly smitten with former reality TV star Donald Trump, but for conservative commentator Glenn beck, this makes no sense. Trump, a longtime crony capitalist, supports many liberal positions, including increased gun control and single-payer healthcare. ...

    Glenn Beck: Why Do Conservative Pundits Support Trump? Glenn Beck wants to stage a conservative intervention. The former Fox News host and prominent conservative commentator is confounded that so many Republican voters are attracted to Donald Trump. And Beck is particularly bewildered by the conservative pundits who are hooked on the bombastic real estate mogul. "Why are big name 'conservatives' supporting him?" Beck asked wrote in a Facebook post on Thursday. Beck went on to name names, calling out some of Trump's biggest boosters in conservative media: Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and Michael Savage. "I am not talking...

    The number of illegal immigrants in the United States totaled 11.3 million in 2014, outnumbering the 9.6 million Americans who were unemployed in the same year, according to data from Pew Research Center and the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). “An estimated 11.3 million unauthorized immigrants lived in the U.S. in 2014,” says a Pew report. “The new unauthorized immigrant total includes people who cross the border illegally as well as those who arrive with legal visas and remain in the U.S. after their visas expire.” Of those 11.3 illegal immigrants, 8.1 million are participating in the labor force. “Unauthorized...

    ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – All the high-profile violent crimes hitting the Albuquerque area may be helping gun sales. One local shop says they’ve seen a major uptick in sales in what’s usually the slowest time of the year and that they heard from a lot of people after the murder of Steven Gerecke. Omni Arms near Central and Juan Tabo typically sells about 30 guns a week in the summer. The store manager says in the week after police say Gerecke was killed in his own driveway by six teens on a crime spree, they sold around 50 guns. And they...

    Ann Coulter and Geraldo Rivera clashed on Tuesday night over illegal immigration and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s controversial claim that Mexico is ”sending people that have lots of problems” to America. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best,” Trump said when announcing his candidacy. “They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” Coulter, who takes a hard line on illegal immigration, didn’t defend Trump directly but said she believes the government should be using...

Rape trees have been known of since at least 2009, but they tend not to feature in any discussions of comprehensive immigration reform.

Not to mention the reaction of Hillary Clinton. Mediaite is up in arms about Donald Trump, specifically his views on illegal immigration and Mexico.

Artesan Dalton Avalos Ramirez created a Trump piñata after the outspoken mogul bashed Mexico on Tuesday during a speech when he announced he was running for president. During his kickoff speech, Trump accused Mexico of illegally sending drugs, crime and rapists across the border. Avalos Ramirez, who lives and works in Reynosa, Mexico said Mexicans on both sides of the border are quite angry at his comments and are embracing the new piñata gladly.

    Polling data compiled by Tea Party Patriots and provided exclusively to Breitbart News shows that a majority of Republican voters think Republicans standing strong on immigration is more important than repealing Obamacare, getting to the bottom of the Benghazi or IRS scandals—or anything else for that matter. When asked by TPP’s pollster which issue they think is the important for Republicans in Congress to deal with, 34.6 percent of GOP voters said stopping the flow of illegal immigrants across our southern border. Stopping Obama’s “illegal overreach” with executive power came in a distant second with 24 percent of GOP voters...

As unaccompanied minors from Central America who have flooded across President Obama's open borders are dispersed nationwide from Nebraska to Illinois to Massachusetts, concerns have arisen that the nation's health has been put at risk by poor and even absent medical screening.

Obama is like an arsonist who sets fires to help rescue people from burning buildings. He's asked Congress for $2 billion to deal with a child refugee crisis of his own making, money that could have gone to seal the border instead of having Border Patrol agents acting as glorified baby-sitters by cooking, cleaning and even doing laundry.

Concrete evidence has shown up proving our earlier assertion: The breach of our border by waves of unaccompanied alien children was orchestrated by the administration based on a strategy straight out of the playbook President Obama studied as a community organizer. His goal is to get his way on immigration reform by overwhelming the U.S. Border Patrol and collapsing an already weakened system. The evidence comes in the form a...

A spokesman for the conservative think tank confirmed Jason Richwine's resignation Friday without offering details. Richwine was one of two authors of a report released Monday that said immigration legislation pending in the Senate would cost $6.3 trillion over 50 years as immigrants consumed federal benefits without making up for it in taxes. The report quickly came under attack as critics from the left and right said it didn't account for economic benefits from...

But the senator degenerated into pure political spin. First, Rubio claims that this plan is not amnesty, because trespassers have to “qualify.” How do they qualify? They fill out a form. And they have to continually steal a job from a U.S. citizen. They have to remain employed, while tens of millions of American citizens are out of work. They must pay taxes. But they can’t be turned...

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — For some believers and church leaders, opposing Alabama's toughest-in-the-nation law against illegal immigration is a chance for Bible Belt redemption. During the civil rights movement of the 1950s and `60s, many state churches didn't join the fight to end Jim Crow laws and racial segregation. Some cross-burning Ku Klux Klan members took off their hoods and sat in the pews with everyone else on Sunday mornings, and relatively few white congregations actively opposed segregation. Some black churches were hesitant to get involved for fear of white backlash. Now that Alabama has passed what's widely considered the...

    In a first for any administration, President Obama has implemented a new system to spare a myriad of illegal immigrants from removal by authorizing—and encouraging—low-level field officers to block deportations by using an outrageously broad list of exemptions. The unprecedented program will allow droves of undocumented immigrants to remain in the U.S. by drastically expanding factors that can be considered to exercise “prosecutorial discretion.” That’s when agencies get to decide to what degree they enforce certain laws against particular individuals. Beginning this week, federal immigration officers, attorneys and other officials can cancel the removal of an illegal immigrant that is...

    SAN JUAN - Hidalgo County Sheriff's deputies are searching for the suspects of a drug stash house.

    This year's May Day rally is expected to draw fewer immigrant rights activists to downtown Los Angeles than in past years, but police said they would be prepared for any problems that might occur. Organizers said the demonstration could draw more than 50,000 people, but permits sought for the march estimate a crowd of about 10,000. Whatever the turnout, police said, they would be ready with a significant deployment of officers. As in the past, the annual immigrant and labor rights march is seen as a way to rally public support for federal legislation that would legalize the nation's 11...

    Is it still safe to go to Dodger games anymore? A prayer vigil set for Wednesday evening in honor of Brian Stow — the San Francisco Giants fan who was attacked on Sunday in a post-game parking lot brawl — will likely bring renewed focus on safety concerns at Dodger Stadium. One man told KNX 1070 he wouldn’t be worried about his safety at a Dodger game, while another said he wouldn’t even bother going to a game, saying there is a larger problem with the mentality of Dodger fans. “We’re talking about people who are taking their kids to...

    Undocumented workers in Utah will be allowed to apply for temporary legal residency under legislation signed into law last week. HB 469, the Utah Pilot Sponsored Resident Immigrant Program Act, surprised politicians with its forward-thinking approach. Under the program, illegal immigrants working in Utah can apply for legal temporary resident status if they pass a health and background check, and can show that they have not been convicted of or pled anything but not guilty to a felony or class A misdemeanor. A class A misdemeanor is an offense serious enough to be punished by a year in jail and/or...
