  • EXCLUSIVE: Whatever Trump does, Dreamers likely to be deported soon

    The Sacramento Bee ^ | January 22nd, 2017 | By Franco Ordoñez
    WASHINGTON - Young immigrants currently protected from deportation will be quickly removed from the country by President Donald Trump’s plan to boost deportations, even if the new president doesn’t target them directly, according to a former senior immigration official in the Obama administration. Democratic leaders and advocates within the immigration community are bracing for Trump on Monday to eliminate several of Obama’s executive actions on immigration, including the deferred action program, known as DACA, that protects an estimated 750,000 immigrants brought here illegally as children. Trump is not expected to immediately launch raids targeting the students, but fears among so-called...

  • Donald Trump won because of Immigration (Vanity)

    Yes it's true that Trump's tweets, exciting speeches, and ability to work the media assisted him in the primary and general election, but he never would have won the primary if he supported amnesty and wasn't for ending illegal immigration. The Establishment and the media don't mention this when discussing Trump's win. I wouldn't have supported him despite him taken on the Establishment if he was lax on immigration. Trump knew this when he spoke at CPAC in 2013 and warned the Republicans against passing amnesty. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/mar/15/cpac-2013-donald-trump-immigration-reform-suicide-/

    BROWNSVILLE, Texas – President-elect Donald Trump’s pledge to build a U.S.-Mexico wall has touched off a fierce debate in the U.S. border towns that would be most affected – with local Democrats vowing to fight Trump tooth and nail if he proceeds. “Mexico is an ally, not an enemy,” Rep. Filemon Vela, D-Texas, told FoxNews.com. “It is our second-largest trading partner, and building a wall between two countries with such important ties is a senseless and wasteful exercise." Vela is a colorful Trump critic. He made headlines after calling the president-elect's illegal immigrant policies “hateful, dehumanizing, and frankly shameful.” In...

Ryan dismissed that idea. “I’m here to tell you in Congress, it’s not happening.” Instead, Ryan said Mr. Trump has asked lawmakers to focus on two priorities with respect to illegal immigration: securing the border and deporting immigrants who are violent, repeat criminals. House GOP lawmakers and aides have also said recently they’re working on how to pay for border security to make good on Mr. Trump’s promise of building a wall...

    Speaker of the House Paul Ryan told an illegal immigrant Thursday night that she shouldn’t “worry” about getting deported this year. A 32-year old illegal immigrant living in Oklahoma named Angelica asked Ryan during a CNN town hall if he thinks she should be deported. Angelica was brought to the United States when she was 11, and thus is protected under President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty for illegal immigrants brought to the United States as minors. The woman has an American-born daughter and wondered if someone in her situation should be deported.

Herman, who grows figs, persimmons and almonds in the nation’s most productive farming state, said Trump’s comments pushed him to make the purchase, larger than he would have otherwise. “No doubt about it,” Herman said. “I probably wouldn’t have spent as much or bought as much machinery as I did.”(continued)

    As California lawmakers return to Sacramento on Wednesday, liberal dreams of expanding safety-net benefits and providing health coverage to immigrants are giving way to a new vision revolving around a feverish push to protect gains racked up in the past. After years of pushing forward a progressive agenda, legislative Democrats will be pushing back against conservative policies from President-elect Donald Trump and the Republican Congress. Instead of expanding Medi-Cal health coverage to adult immigrants who can’t prove they’re legally in the country, Democrats are now concentrating on how to retain health coverage for those who already have it. And anti-poverty...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Barack Obama is under pressure during his final weeks as president to do something — anything — to secure the future of hundreds of thousands of immigrants brought to the U.S. as children who could face deportation under the Trump administration. His options appear few. At least 50 congressional Democrats are pushing Obama to take the rare if not unprecedented step of granting pardons to the young immigrants who have stepped forward to identify themselves in exchange for a promise that they'd be safe from deportation. The White House, though, has repeatedly ruled that out. Several Republican...

    Democratic politicians, including mayors in three major cities, are looking to use millions in taxpayer funds to protect illegal immigrants in their cities from deportation. Mayors of Los Angeles, Chicago, and San Francisco are looking to create funds to provide attorneys to illegal immigrants who face deportation, the Wall Street Journal reports. If these efforts succeed, the amount of taxpayer money set aside to protect illegal immigrants will easily be in the millions. California alone will consider a bill that may cost between $10-80 million per year. Los Angeles has already set aside $10 million for an immigrant defense fund.

    A Mexican man had been deported nineteen times from the US, forcibly and voluntarily. Yet, he now faces charges of raping a 13-year-old girl in Kansas. Thomas Martinez-Maldonado, 38, is accused of raping a 13-year-old girl on a Greyhound bus that was traveling through Kansas. The Witchita Eagle reports: Three U.S. Republican senators — including Kansas' Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts — demanded this month that the Department of Homeland Security provide immigration records for 38-year-old Tomas Martinez-Maldonado, who is charged with a felony in the alleged Sept. 27 attack aboard a bus in Geary County. He is being held...

    Republicans’ grip on all levers of power stands as a mandate to the GOP-led Congress, which will move swiftly to try to undo eight years of outgoing President Barack Obama’s agenda. With Republican President-elect Donald Trump weeks away from assuming office, GOP lawmakers plan to open the 115th Congress on Tuesday and immediately take steps to repeal Obama’s health care law. Beyond that, they’ll look at a tax overhaul, reversing Obama-era environmental regulations and other conservative priorities. Republicans will face some obstacles. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi says Democrats “stand ready to fight vigorously” to protect health care and other...

    ... There have been 22 homicides in the Prince William so far in 2016, compared to 10 last year. In many communities, the prospect of 22 murders in a year might not seem like a cause for concern. This year the District has so far tallied 134 slayings and neighboring Fairfax County so far had 18 homicides. But the numbers in Prince William County are the highest in the county since authorities began tracking homicides in 1975. The next most deadly year was 2006, when 16 people were slain. ... Experts attribute the increase to a range of factors, including...

    File this under “things that should be obvious,” but immigration control isn’t slavery. Nor is breaking a just federal law consistent with Christian ethics. Nonetheless, a network of “progressive” Christians is preparing to fight the Trump administration’s immigration efforts with an “underground railroad” for illegals. A recent story at The New York Times details how a network of 450 churches across the country are planning to break federal law and defy the will of the American people by sheltering criminal illegal immigrants against deportation.
