    During OZY Fest, a two-day event in Central Park this weekend, Hillary Clinton sat down for an interview with nonprofit leader Laurene Powell Jobs and shared that she plans to help reunite immigrant families by providing transportation options. “I’m going to be tweeting about this in the days to come, but if any of you work for an airline please direct-message me because these families will need vouchers and discounted tickets to be reunited over these thousands of miles,” she said on Saturday, according to the Associated Press. As a result of the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy at the border,...

    Officials are advising West Virginia residents to stay informed about the Hepatitis A epidemic. Health officials tell 13 News, that Kanawha County leads the state in confirmed Hep-A cases. Cabell County comes in a close second. On Thursday, the Cabell-Huntington Health Department hosted a town hall forum as part of their "Stop the Spread" Campaign set to begin this month. "These outbreaks tend to last one to two years, so its not going anywhere and we probably haven't even seen the worst of it," said the Bureau for Public Health's Shannon McBee. "We just want everyone to be extra aware...

    Full title: ICE Just Arrested Dozens of Illegal Aliens in a Sanctuary City, the Majority Have Serious Criminal Records Immigration and Customs Enforcement, an agency many Democrats want to abolish, recently conducted a raid in Newark, New Jersey and arrested dozens of illegal aliens. The overwhelming majority have serious criminal records. ICE targeted Illegal aliens who had been incarcerated in the Middlesex County Jail and released into the community by local law enforcement without notice to federal immigration officials.

    To get a whiff of how bad things are in San Francisco – not in its aromatic streets, but in its sanctuary city status – consider two cases both going on around the issue of reasonable modifications toward the city's extremist succor for illegal aliens. First, Gavin Newsom, the former mayor of the city who's now the frontrunner for the California governor's job. The Sacramento Bee has the goods: As mayor of San Francisco, Gavin Newsom in 2008 spearheaded a citywide policy requiring law enforcement officers to report juvenile undocumented immigrants [sic] to Immigration and Customs Enforcement when charged with...

    Experts say the opposite is happening. Before US immigration authorities detained him and took his son, the Honduran migrant said he spent three days in the hands of armed men who identified themselves as members of the Gulf Cartel. Christian, who did not want his full name used, said he was traveling to the US border with his 7-year-old ..."They told us if we didn't pay that they were going to kill us," recalled Christian, who said he was freed three days later after relatives wired money {snip} . The smugglers prefer migrants with family in the US. They know...

    A record 22 percent of Americans said this month that they believe “immigration/illegal aliens” is the most important problem facing the United States, according to Gallup polling numbers released on Wednesday. “The 22 percent of Americans in July who say immigration is the top problem is up from 14 percent in June and is the highest percentage naming that issue in Gallup's history of asking the ‘most important problem’ question,” Gallup Editor in Chief Frank Newport said in an analysis of the survey. “The previous high had been 19%,” Newport said.

    Breitbart ^ | 18 Jul 18 | Neil Munro
    Senate Democrats are rallying behind a “family reunification” bill which promises a policy of catch-and-release for nearly all migrants who bring their children over the border. The bill would allow the migrant parents to stay in the United States until their children’s legal pleas are finally resolved. That legal stay could last for several years if the courts’ existing two-year backlog of 700,000 cases is increased by many migrants eager to accept the Democrats’ catch-and-release invite. snip The Reunite Every Unaccompanied Newborn Infant, Toddler and Other Children Expeditiously (REUNITE) Act, is sponsored by California Sen. Kamala Harris, Oregon Sen. Jeff...

    The Hill ^ | 07/18/18 | Raul A. Reyes
    Go away. That’s the message the Trump administration is sending to migrants at our southern border. Under a new policy being implemented, fear of domestic or gang violence will no longer be accepted as grounds for asylum. This follows a decision by Attorney General Jeff Sessions that people making such claims will be turned back by border officials before they can plead their case in court. Announcing the decision last month, Sessions said it “restores sound principles of asylum and long-standing principles of immigration law.” Actually, this move by the Trump administration further guts the right to asylum. It goes...

    As if the separation of families at the border and the travel ban were not enough, the Trump administration has a denaturalization initiative that is stoking controversy. A few weeks ago, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director L. Francis Cissna told the Associated Press that his agency is hiring dozens of attorneys to form a task force to review the records of people who have become U.S. citizens since 1990, in order to identify people who deliberately lied on their citizenship applications. “We finally have a process in place to get to the bottom of all these bad cases...

    The federal judge overseeing the U.S. government's efforts to reunify more than 2,500 migrant children it separated from their parents ordered a temporary hold on deportations for reunified families on Monday. Judge Dana Sabraw of the Southern District of California said the government must halt the deportations in response to a filing by the ACLU that claimed the government has refused to deny "that mass deportations may be carried out imminently and immediately upon reunification."

    A U.S. judge struck back late Friday night at a Trump administration claim that speeding up the reunification of immigrant families separated at the U.S.-Mexican border would put children at risk, saying the government had either misunderstood his instructions or was “acting in defiance of them.” Last month, in a case brought by the American Civil Liberties Union, U.S. District Judge Dana Sabraw ordered the government to reunite as many as 2,500 children and parents separated as part of U.S. President Donald Trump’s efforts to combat illegal immigration. The separations came after families crossed the border illegally or filed for...

    About 70% of illegal aliens who claim asylum never bother to show up for their court cases. They simply disappear "into the shadows" once they are released into the population. And no wonder, given that courts have found 80% of asylum cases to be bogus to begin with. It appears that illegals are cynically gaming our immigration system to get a foot in the door, make a false asylum claim, and then disappear into the interior of the country. But liberals can't have people thinking that, so they have produced a "study" explaining why illegal aliens don't show up for...

    11 families who had been detained and separated after they were caught crossing the U.S. border illegally returned home Tuesday to Guatemala aboard a U.S. government-chartered flight that read "World Atlantic." Greeted by first lady Patricia Marroquin, they lined up on the tarmac, shuffling - their shoelaces had been taken as a security precaution. U.S. immigration officials handed over paperwork in manila envelopes to Guatemalan officials. The immigrants walked single-file into a squat gray building at the country's military base to be processed back into their country, along with dozens of others also deported. Chartered flights full of deportees from...

    Reliably red on the political map, Huntington is a West Virginia town with a 191-year-old university, a storied football team and more than 100 churches. It’s where Will Lockwood graduated from high school. It’s where he enrolled at Marshall University. It’s where he first tried OxyContin. By the time Lockwood entered Marshall as a freshman, Detroit dealers were trickling into Huntington selling OxyContin and pills with OxyContin’s active ingredient, oxycodone. Even though Lockwood could step out his front door and get the drug, Detroit street dealers weren’t the preferred supplier. Florida was. It may be 1,000 miles away, but to...
