    We keep hearing rumors about this even though it’s very hard to track down specifics. Word on the street is that various groups, including churches, are preparing to assist illegal immigrants by either providing them with shelter or facilitating their plans to flee to Canada. Without more documentation it’s hard to be entirely sure, but with this much smoke it’s certainly possible that there is at least a bit of fire underneath. Another report has emerged on this, although it’s from Buzzfeed, so take it with whatever size grain of salt you feel appropriate. Churches across the US are fighting...

    Full title: Leader of next Womens March is Palestinian terrorist who took part in two massacres of Israelis and then worked for Obamacare The document was co-authored by, among others, Rasmea Yousef Odeh, a convicted terrorist. Odeh, a Palestinian, was convicted in Israel in 1970 for her part in two terrorist bombings, one of which killed two students while they were shopping for groceries. She spent 10 years in prison for her crimes. She then managed to become a US citizen in 2004 by lying about her past (great detective work, INS: Next time, use Google) but was subsequently convicted,...

    Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant is ready to assist in President Donald Trumps crackdown on illegal immigration, but some of his fellow Republicans are less than eager to cooperate. Bryant contends that beefed up enforcement at the federal level can only help states. The federal law is the federal law, Bryant told Newsmax while visiting Washington for the National Governors Association winter meeting this weekend. You see now that Immigration and Customs Enforcement is simply enforcing the federal laws. I like to remind people, if we are going to ignore these laws, they need to tell us what other laws we...

    As President Donald Trump prepares to deport millions of immigrants in the country illegally, a new national study shows undocumented workers pump billions of dollars into Connecticuts economy each year. The New American Economy, a coalition of mayors and business leaders who support sensible immigration reform, found that the nearly 130,000 undocumented Connecticut residents pay $397 million in annual federal, state and local taxes, account for $3.1 billion in household income and represent $2.7 billion in spending power. This research proves what weve known for years: Immigrants are a boom to our local economy and in every community in America,...

    It may not yet be the mass deportation that activists have been warning about. But it appears inevitable that many more undocumented immigrants will be swept up by the Trump administrations more aggressive enforcement. The groups at risk of deportation have been expanded dramatically by President Donald Trumps Jan. 25 executive orders and the enforcement memos issued last week by the Department of Homeland Security. In addition to targeting undocumented immigrants convicted of serious crimes a perfectly appropriate step and the focus during most of the Obama years federal agents will prioritize people guilty of any crime and...

Now, following a late February release of new immigration enforcement guidelines, immigrants are creating new routines to protect their lives.

It also blocks those agencies from spending state resources to create or enforce a registry of citizens on the basis of religious affiliation. The order blocks the Washington State Patrol and the state Department of Corrections from detaining anyone solely on the basis...

The suspect was reportedly flagged by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) as an immigration enforcement priority," given his known gang affiliation. A detainer request was put on Valles, asking the city of Denver, a so-called sanctuary city to notify them before he was released, so they could take him into custody. However, Denver released Valles December 20, and ICE claims they were not properly notified. Almost twomonths later, tragedy struck. On February 17, Valles was charged with first-degree...

People I talk with want President Trump to know that we stand with him; and that we, too, see that the judiciary is coming off the rails. Furthermore, we are ready to do something about it, said rally organizer and Memphis Tea Party founder Mark Skoda in a press release posted to Facebook.

    Camarota offers the following conclusions from his study: There is also agreement that immigrants who come to America with modest levels of education create significantly more in costs for government than they pay in taxes. A recent NAS study estimated the lifetime fiscal impact (taxes paid minus services used) of immigrants by education. Averaging the cost estimates from that study and combining them with the education levels of illegal border-crossers shows a net fiscal drain of $74,722 per illegal crosser.2 The above figures are only for the original illegal immigrants and do notinclude any costs for their U.S.-born descendants. If...

    Lets face it every Irish person in New York knows someone whos undocumented. Usually they know more than one.

Welcoming immigrants is really the citys oldest tradition. It actually makes sound financial sense. The undocumented often do the work that...
