    White House officials said on Friday that President Barack Obama will enact "very significant" executive actions on immigration at the end of summer. Obama had previously announced that he had asked Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson to give him recommendations on executive actions by the end of summer. Obama said he wanted to change as much of the country's immigration laws as he could unilaterally.

    The federal government says 173 unaccompanied immigrant children have been placed in Minnesota since the start of the year. The Office of Refugee Resettlement on Thursday issued a state-by-state breakdown of unaccompanied child placement. The figures show more than 30,000 children have been released to sponsors this year through July 7. The specific locations of the placements were not specified. Fifty have been placed in Wisconsin. Texas, New York, Florida and California are receiving the most unaccompanied children caught at the U.S. border, according to the information. Federal and state governments are scrambling to find shelter for the children fleeing...

    U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe turned up the rhetoric on immigration late this week, telling a national television audience that young immigrants at Fort Sill and elsewhere are in the U.S. “at the invitation of the president” and comparing the situation to the administration’s exchange of five Guantanamo Bay prisoners for U.S. serviceman Bowe Bergdahl. Inhofe also signed on to a bill by Texas Sen. Ted Cruz that would effectively end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, the Obama administration’s policy of giving low priority to deportation of undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children and have been in the...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - New federal data show at least 350 children caught at the U.S. border this year have been sent to stay with relatives or other sponsors in South Carolina. They are among more than 30,000 children who have been released to sponsors nationwide from Jan. 1 through July 7. That's according to data published Thursday by the Department of Health and Human Services' Administration for Children and Families. Gov.

    President Barack Obama was meeting with Central American leaders Friday to urge them to help slow the exodus of unaccompanied children from their countries, as House Republicans tried to get behind a solution to the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border. GOP lawmakers said Friday they were attempting to coalesce around a narrow package of changes including sending National Guard troops to the border, increasing the number of immigration judges, and changing the law so that migrant youths arriving by the tens of thousands can be sent home more quickly. The package would cost less than $1 billion, several lawmakers said,...

    President Barack Obama insisted for years that he had absolutely no legal authority — none whatsoever, zero, zilch — to slow deportations on a broad scale. Forget everything he’s said. Obama’s pledge to use his executive powers by the end of the summer marked both a dramatic reversal in rhetoric and a major strategic shift on immigration. The president is no longer emphasizing his own powerlessness but rather his determination “to fix as much of our immigration system as I can on my own, without Congress.” [SNIP] The shift could be used by critics as an example of Obama saying...

    "Most of our children are teenagers," she said. "They have crossed the border, so they're older. For youths who are 13 and older, [the payment to foster parents is] $24.79 per day." $24.97 per day adds up to about $750 per month, but foster parents who take in more than one minor can collect thousands of dollars each month. In addition to standard payments, foster parents additionally receive a "clothing allowance" for the minors every three months. The spokeswoman pointed out that that healthcare costs for the illegal immigrant minors are "provided for" by the government, and that the children...

    Judge Michael Baird of the federal Dallas Immigration Court said on July 22 that 18 of the children whose cases he was scheduled to hear on that day didn’t show up for court. The unaccompanied children were among 20 from Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala who were set to appear in Baird’s court for initial deportation hearings. The Dallas Morning News cited Baird’s statement describing the absentee rate that day as “highly unusual” — so high that he reset the hearings for August 11 rather than possibly issuing a deportation order. Baird said he was concerned that the children may...

Bush argued that the 2008 anti-trafficking law - allowing children to stay in the country - should be changed to help stop the flow of children crossing the border, who then claim...

Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens). Deportable crimes that carry a maximum one-year sentence include theft, fraud and forgery. "As a...

    The issue of illegal immigration continues to cover national headlines. After reading articles and talking with friends and coworkers, it’s easy to hear a lot of terms trying to personify an international issue. You have probably heard the words “immigrant,” “migrant,” “alien” or maybe even “refugee” to describe people who come into the U.S. illegally. We wanted to look at what these terms specifically mean. Merriam-Webster dictionary describes the word ‘immigrant‘ as “a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence.” The word ‘migrant‘ means “a person who goes from one place to another especially to find...

The most noteworthy event was the appearance of a "Professional Air Survelliance Drone". The drone was not the typical $ 300 drone that's available at Brookstone. Nor was it a Dragan Flyer series. The drone was a quad-copter, white in color, with a solid structrual interface between the center section (oval shaped) and...

    JULY 19, 2014 An Obama-Caused Border Disaster Make no mistake, the president has instigated the present influx of illegal aliens. By Andrew C. McCarthy It is a grave error to view the swarming of illegal aliens across our southern border as anything other than a challenge to our sovereignty — a challenge abetted, rather than repulsed, by a president who vows to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” The challenge brings into sharp relief a question I’ve repeatedly pressed (see, e.g., here, here, here, and here): If the states cannot or will not defend themselves, are they still, in...

    Hundreds of protests are taking place across the United States this weekend in opposition to the surge of immigrants illegally crossing the country’s southern border and proposed immigration reform that organizers say gives amnesty to those already living illegally in the country. Organizers say 321 protests will take place over the next two days -- from state capitals to highway overpasses to Mexican consulates. The protests have been sparked by the thousands of Central American immigrants who in the past few months have entered the U.S. illegally in hopes of staying. “We know that 12,000 people expected to attend roughly...

    Full Title: EXCLUSIVE: Documents Detail Heinous Crimes Committed by Gang Members Being Housed in Nogales Processing Center Late last week I reported 16 MS-13 gang members exploiting the unaccompanied minor crisis were being housed at a Border Patrol processing center in Nogales, Arizona.

Further investigation shows gang members from different criminal organizations were also discovered after a fight broke out between two rival MS-13 and 18th Street gang members in a shared holding cell. The gang members admitted in interviews with Border Patrol agents they had engaged in...

    President Barack Obama has conned GOP legislators and the media into blaming a 2008 anti-trafficking law for his failure to block the growing wave of migrants now crossing the Texas border, according to a new legal analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies. The 2008 law does’t limit Obama’s ability to block the wave of families, working-age youths and children, says the new report. The juvenile illegal immigrants are voluntarily crossing the border to find jobs and live with parents already in the United States, and so they aren’t covered by the 2008 anti-trafficking law, said Jon Feere, a legal...

    Gov. Deval Patrick's offer to house up to 1,000 children who crossed the country's southern border illegally in one of two Bay State military bases is drawing heavy fire in one targeted community, where a local leader warned residents will be "up in arms" over the proposal. "I am totally against it," said Chicopee City Council President George Moreau, whose city is home to Westover Air Base, one of two sites Patrick identified as a possible landing spot for unaccompanied children for as long as four months. Joint Base Cape Cod in Bourne is the other proposed shelter site. Citing...

    Human smugglers in Mexico routinely give young illegal immigrant girls birth control for their trip through Mexico. The odds are they will be raped.
