    Immigration reform supporters finally got their long-awaited town hall meeting with U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford. More than 200 people packed the Holy Family Catholic Church on Sunday afternoon on Hilton Head Island to question Sanford about his stance on immigration at a meeting set up by the Lowcountry Immigration Coalition, which supports comprehensive immigration reform.

    An ideological construct that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage. Throughout this primary season, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders have both been flogging the “crisis” of “income inequality,” which is “at the center of their campaigns,” according to CNN. Both have scourged the “greed” of the “1%,” called for higher taxes on the “rich,” and promised to expand and multiply government programs to rectify this injustice. Yet like other slogans progressives rely on, the idea of “income inequality” is an ideological construct, a statistical artifact that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage. The first problem with...

    There’s an article this week over at The Last Refuge which might be worth a look if you’ve got an open mind on the subject. One of the less commented on aspects of international relations with Mexico is the volume of cash which Mexicans living in America (including illegal aliens) send home every year to their families. There’s nothing shocking about the idea at first glance. People send money home all the time. But just how much is it? This report straight out of Mexico may come as a bit of a shock.

    Pontiff's show of solidarity during visit to Mexico Pope Francis, who has spent the past several months pressing nations, including America, to embrace those fleeing the unrest in the Middle East, Africa and Asia with open arms - and open borders - is now taking that stance to a new political level and planning a solidarity stand with migrants along the U.S.-Mexico boundary. Market Watch reported Francis is due to arrive in Mexico on Friday for a six-day visit. And as part of that visit, he is planning to stand on the U.S. border, in Ciudad Juarez, and deliver a...

The pope’s gesture comes at the height of a rancorous U.S. political season in which immigration has become a hot-button issue. Two leading candidates for the Republican nomination, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, have vowed to...

The bank said it was the first time remittances had totaled more than petroleum revenues since it began tracking them in 1995.

The HIll: “Mexican people, we are not going to pay any single cent for such a stupid wall!” Calderón told CNBC on Saturday. “And it’s going to be completely useless.”  Calderón, who served as president from 2006 to 2012, said Trump is “not [a] very well-informed man.”  “The first loser of such a policy would be the United States,” he added. “If this guy pretends that closing the borders to anywhere either for trade [or] for people is going...

As of June 2015, "the Administration awarded approximately $750 million in tax credits on behalf of individuals who were later determined to be ineligible because they failed to verify their citizenship, status as a national, or legal presence," said the report from Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, reported Fox News.

Consider the question of illegal immigration. No, not the question of immigration -- illegal immigration. There's a temptation to bundle those together, because we have problems with our legal immigration regime, too, but the more tightly we tie them together, the more closely we bind...

ANSWER: I was steadfastly opposed to giving Obama his Fast-Track powers, and would have absolutely voted against it. This is one of the strongest distinctions between me and the other candidates in this race. The Congress, apparently under the magical spell of donors, gave massive new powers to a President who has repeatedly abused his authority. The...

    Any politician who claims to care about the drug overdose deaths sweeping the nation, but does not demand that we build a wall, deport illegal aliens and end the anchor baby scam, is a liar. In 2014, more people died from drug overdoses than any year in U.S. history: 47,055. That's more than die in car accidents -- and it's not even close. This is a huge, horrible problem -- and it's a problem caused entirely by the fact that Mexico is on our southern border. The diverse, hardworking people of Mexico manufacture the majority of heroin in the U.S....

"Let's be clear," Rubio said. "Nobody is talking about preventing the legalization. The legalization is going to happen. That means the following will happen: First comes the legalization.

Asserting one candidate is more electable than another is always a fool's errand. After all, this frantic concern of electability is what got us the nominations of Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney.

The affiliation between gangs and the hordes of Central American illegal immigrants who continue invading the U.S. is a story Judicial Watch has been reporting for more than a year. The Obama administration calls them Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) and tries to portray them as innocent, desperate kids fleeing violence and famine in their homeland.

    The Zika virus, a disease suspected of causing birth defects which spread across much of Latin America in 2015, has now reached the United States. A young girl who traveled from Los Angeles County to El Salvador was infected with the mosquito-transmitted disease, according to the local department of public health. The girl has now recovered, but it’s not the adults infected with the disease who are especially at risk—it’s the unborn. The Zika virus is linked to microcephaly, a birth defect where the infant is born with an abnormally small brain. The majority of children born with the disease...

    Donald Trump is taking his rivalry with Republican presidential opponent Ted Cruz to a new level, unveiling an attack ad that portrays the U.S. senator from Texas as weak on illegal immigration. The minute-long commercial, which Trump's campaign released Friday morning, zeroes in on an interview last month in which Cruz struggled to explain his involvement in immigration reform efforts in 2013. The spot then flashes back to Cruz introducing amendments to the so-called "Gang of Eight" legislation that has become toxic to many GOP primary voters. "I want immigration reform to pass," Cruz is quoted as saying at the...

    McAllen, Texas - Illegal aliens with previous convictions for sexual crimes continue to be a regular sight for U.S. Border Patrol agents working in this border region. On Wednesday, the Rio Grande Valley Sector (RGV) of the U.S. Border Patrol confirmed to Breitbart Texas that they had arrested five criminal aliens with a history of sexual offenses including a Guatemalan man who is considered a "sexually violent predator."
  • How Are Illegals Employed: A Question for my Fellow Freepers

    Every time I pass a construction site here in Coastal South Carolina, I wonder how the contractors manage to employ a labor force that consists almost entirely of illegal aliens. The only language spoken at theses sites is Spanish and my experience as a prosecutor tells me that the people employed there are almost all illegal and do not have Social Security Numbers. How are contractors able to employ these workers? Are they all paid under the table? Does no one inspect job sites? Is there some loophole in the law that allows the employers to avoid record-keeping and tax...

    While it would be nice to get our borders under control and stem the tide of people who take the rather direct route into our country of jumping fences, such a move doesn’t do anything to address the question of people who obtain a visa to visit and simply never leave. Is that really much of a problem? Well, if you ask the Department of Homeland Security it is. Last year alone, more than half of the people who arrived with a valid visa failed to leave when their time was up. (Washington Free Beacon.) More than half a...

    Conservative Review ^ | January 20th, 2016 | D.C. McAllister
    ... When supporters of Trump begin to realize that, not only is he not a conservative, but he’s not even a populist, they will jump ship. Conservatives will flock to Cruz. The populists will scatter, licking their wounds, either holding on to the Trump ideal to the bitter end or finally realizing Cruz is the fighter they wanted all along. Either way, their insurgency will be broken, and the conservative resurgency will truly begin...

    A 60-year-old illegal immigrant wanted for killing a police officer in the Dominican Republic is behind bars after Lowell cops took him in at gunpoint, police said. Ramon Aguasviva-Mejia, who had recently lived in Lawrence, also has warrants out of Suffolk Superior Court for drug distribution. He is also wanted by Quincy District Court for felony assault, police said. Detectives from the Lowell Police Department’s Special Investigations Section had Aguasviva-Mejia under surveillance Sunday afternoon in Central Plaza on Church Street, but he spotted the tail and bolted, narrowly avoiding hitting the cops as he fled, police said.
  • This Study Proves Why Trump’s Supporters Won’t Leave Him No Matter What He Does

    A social scientist with the University of Massachusetts conducted a study last week designed to identify trends among the supporters of the leading political candidates for the 2016 race. With respect to Trump’s supporters in particular, the study found that the main statistical variable that could be used to predict whether someone was a Trump supporter was not race, age, religion, income, or education. It is, rather, an impulse towards authoritarianism. My finding is the result of a national poll I conducted in the last five days of December under the auspices of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, sampling 1,800...

    The headline reflects the moment my previous support for Ted Cruz (2011/2012), which evolved to concern about Senator Ted Cruz (2013/2014), turned to admitting Ted Cruz was a phoney. The date was Saturday, July 19th, 2014 – I remember it vividly because I noted in my journal “last straw in providing Cruz any benefit of doubt – done“. The week leading up to that weekend DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson appeared before an emergency congressional committee and stated he needed $4,000,000,000 (billion) in emergency appropriations to deal with the enormous “humanitarian crisis at the border“. We knew that claim was fake...

    The Supreme Court could announce as early as Friday if it will be taking up President Obama's appeal to save his executive action on immigration, according to a Reuters report. The news service reported early Friday that the nine Supreme Court justices were set to meet privately on whether to hear the White House appeal to a pair of lower court rulings that found invalid Obama's move to shield 4 million immigrants from deportation. Declining to hear the case would effectively kill the program, whereas taking it up would immediately make it one of the most-watched cases of the court's...

    The leader of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on Thursday assailed the "very loud" voices in the Republican presidential race who advocate "walling off America," taking what appeared to be a swipe at Donald Trump. While Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue did not mention Trump by name, he denounced candidates who he said "are attacking whole groups of people based not on their conduct but on their ethnicity or religion." "This is morally wrong and politically stupid," Donohue said in his annual State of American business address. Donohoue later denied that his remark was aimed directly at Trump,...
