    The Trump administration on Saturday proposed rules that could deny green cards to immigrants if they use Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers and other forms of public assistance. Federal law already requires those seeking green cards and to prove they will not be a burden — or “public charge” — but the new rules detail a broad range of programs that could disqualify them. The Department of Homeland Security said current and past receipt of certain public benefits above thresholds would be considered “a heavily weighed negative factor” in granting green cards as well as temporary stays.

    The undocumented population in the United States could be twice as large as the most commonly-used estimate, according to a research study published Friday in the scientific journal Plos One. The paper, led by Mohammad M. Fazel-Zarandi, a researcher at Yale and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, estimates there are 22.1 million undocumented immigrants in the United States. Fazel-Zarandi's study compared inflows and outflows of immigrants as well as demographic data. According to the report, the number of undocumented immigrants could be as low as 16.5 million, or as high as 29.1 million. “We combined these data using a demographic model...

    Beto O’Rourke blames Black Americans not working for illegal aliens working [video] September 20th, 2018 Bethany Blankley Beto told a black Texan that he and other Americans created the need for illegal aliens working because they are not working a cotton gin. Yes, he said this– in public– on video. During a town hall event on Wednesday night, Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) — running against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for the Senate seat — told a black American who questioned his support for illegal aliens. O’Rourke then compared the aliens from Central America and Mexico to the modern version of...

    SAN FRANCISCO/NEW YORK (Reuters) - U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced new limits on the ability of immigration judges to terminate deportation cases on Wednesday, the latest in a series of decisions to facilitate the removal of immigrants in the country illegally Unlike the federal judiciary system, U.S. immigration courts fall under the Department of Justice and the attorney general can rewrite opinions issued by the Board of Immigration Appeals. Sessions, a Republican former U.S. senator appointed by President Donald Trump, has been unusually active in this practice compared to his predecessors.

    Nearly half in top 5 U.S. cities don’t speak English at home, record 67 million Nearly half of the residents in the nation’s five biggest cities do not speak English at home, choosing instead their native language, according to the latest Census Bureau data that details the impact of a decade of soft immigration policies. Overall, a record 67 million do not speak English at home, said the bureau. That is nearly double in 27 years. In its just-released analysis of the Census data, the Center for Immigration Studies said, “As a share of the population, 21.8 percent of U.S....
  • One in Five US Prison Inmates is a Criminal Alien

    The U.S. population is around 328 million. It’s estimated that about 11 million — or one in 30 — are illegal immigrants. Yet criminal aliens account for more than one in five federal prison inmates. Even assuming a pretty radical margin of error for the sake of argument, that would still mean illegal immigrants are drastically over-represented among the criminal population. 91 percent of federal criminal aliens were citizens of Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, Dominican Republic, Colombia or Guatemala. There were more than 730,000 criminal aliens in U.S. or state prisons and local jails during the period measured. They accounted...

    Last week California’s Department of Motor Vehicles sent 23,000 “erroneous” voter registrations to the office of Secretary of State Alex Padilla, who maintains the list of registered voters. The DMV blamed it technical errors and said none of the erroneous registrations involved undocumented immigrants. Padilla was “extremely disappointed and deeply frustrated” and the DMV assured him it wouldn’t happen again. Legitimate voters have good reason to believe Padilla was not disappointed but delighted. The odds are strong that illegals make up most if not all of the newly registered voters. The registrations of illegals will be happening again, in...

    The U.S. government will expand its tent shelter for immigrant minors crossing the southwest border to 3,600 beds and keep it open through the end of this year, an agency spokesman said Tuesday. The facility at Tornillo, Texas, which originally opened with a 360-bed capacity for 30 days, is being expanded based on how many children are in the care of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, agency spokesman Kenneth Wolfe said in a statement. Wolfe said the announced expansion was not due to the Trump administration's zero-tolerance policy, which led to the separations of more than 2,500...

    I was having breakfast one early morning with a friend, who just completed his computer science degree. He was enthusiastic about his field of study and bragged about the successful opportunities awaiting in the burgeoning field of apps, smart phones, and driverless cars. We debated our career choices when he facetiously ridiculed my choice of study — history. “Why history?” he asked. “What is so interesting about studying what is dead and long gone?” It’s a common question asked by people about my profession. What my technocratic friend (and others like-minded) do not understand is that the dead sometimes have...

    Tens of thousands of Californians have been registered to vote incorrectly by the state Department of Motor Vehicles, including some who were assigned the wrong political party preference, officials said Wednesday. Officials insist the errors were limited to 23,000 of the 1.4 million voter registration files sent to elections offices between late April, when California’s new automated “motor voter” system went into effect, and early August. Californians who were affected will soon receive notifications in the mail instructing them to check their voter registration status. Jean Shiomoto, the state’s DMV director, and Amy Tong, director of the California Department of...

    SUMNER, Tex. (KXII) - Days after a Lamar County trailer business was raided by immigration agents, the company said they're moving forward and hiring new people. Load Trail welder Brandon Connell's day Tuesday started out like usual--until he heard the yelling. "I hear a banging on the trailer I'm building. I lift up my hood and there's six ICE agents around me," Connell said. Connell said the armed ICE agents told them to drop their tools, get into a room and show documentation. "Kinda picking us apart based on where we were born," Connell said. 160 people were bused away...

    More than 3,000 foreign nationals were removed from voter rolls across 13 sanctuary jurisdictions from 2006 to 2018, according to Public Interest Legal Foundation research released Monday. The study, which collected data on 13 sanctuary cities and counties in seven different states, discovered that approximately 3,120 non-U.S. citizens had been removed, and that some of those non-citizens had cast votes in U.S. elections. The breakdown of jurisdictions and foreign voters removed is as follows: Arlington, Virginia — 145 voters Chesterfield County, Virginia — 321 voters Chicago, Illinois — 232 voters DeKalb County, Georgia — 11 voters Essex County, New Jersey...
  • Beto O’Rourke: Clean-Cut Man with a Dirty Family File Pt. 1

    Texas Representative Beto O’Rourke, who is seeking to unseat Incumbent Senator Ted Cruz, has been linked to a family that has had skirmishes with law enforcement, as well as the federal government over the past few decades, as well as covering potential ties to aiding drug cartels in El Paso since the 1980s, evidence shows. O’Rourke, who is playing up a “family man” and “good boy” picture, is quickly trying to scrub or censor any mention of his family’s wrongdoings, as well as his ethical violations from public view on social media. The criminal-like behavior and history dates back to...

    Former San Francisco mayor and current Democratic candidate for governor of California Gavin Newsome has pledged to make health care free for all illegal immigrants if he wins in November. “When I was mayor I extended the boundaries of freedom beyond what is provided in any other city in America,” Newsome boasted. “The most well-known of these freedoms is, of course, the freedom to defecate in public without fear of penalty. But an overlooked freedom was using public funds to ensure that every undocumented person residing in the city received the same benefits that citizens are required to purchase under...

    The paint on the road near a predominantly Latino community near Des Moines read, "Deport Illegals." The sprayed-on sentiment didn't last the day, but some officials in the Iowa city are worried it's indicative of a simmering resentment for immigrants that has become more public recently. The red paint defaced both directions on a two-lane road on the city's south side on Thursday. "These actions are unfortunate and not consistent with Des Moines' spirit of compassion," Mayor Frank Cownie said. "Such actions have no place in our city." A city worker painted over the words later in the day. The...

    PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) -- Fifteen Oregon county sheriffs endorsed a message from Clatsop County Sheriff Tom Bergin on Monday that called for voters to repeal the state's sanctuary law in light of Mollie Tibbets' murder. Measure 105, which aims to repeal the law "limiting use of state and local law enforcement resources to enforce federal immigration laws," qualified for the November ballot with over 111,000 signatures. Sheriff Bergin, citing "respect for the law," hopes voters will pass the measure this fall. "The statute undermines respect for law in significant ways," Bergin wrote in regard to the state's sanctuary law, which...
