  • Past popes combated the errors of Muhammad. Francis praises them.

    Past popes combated the errors of Muhammad. Francis praises them. As the prototypical progressive Jesuit, Pope Francis prides himself on his “ecumenism.” He oozes enthusiasm for every religion except his own. At the top of his list of favorite religions is the Church’s fiercest adversary — Islam. He often sounds more like a spokesman for CAIR than a Catholic pope. After jihadists cut off the head of a French priest in July 2016 — yelling “Allahu Akbar” over the priest’s slit throat — Pope Francis rushed to the defense of Islam. “I don’t like to talk about Islamic violence, because...
  • Joy Behar Slams First Lady: ‘Where’s Melania Going To Go If We Don’t Have Any Sanctuary Cities’

    Joy Behar slammed first lady Melania Trump as an illegal immigrant Wednesday when she said without sanctuary cities, “where’s Melania going to go.” “The View” co-host made the disparaging comment about the first lady during a panel discussion about part of President Donald Trump’s executive order that would withhold federal funding from sanctuary cities that was blocked by a federal judge. Whoopi Goldberg argued that there was already laws on the books that allows law enforcement to round up illegal immigrants who commit crimes. “I do believe that people…when the laws are in place, if there’s a criminal there’s nothing...
  • LA Times: Tax-Funded Lawyers for Illegal Immigrants Is ‘Worthwhile’

    breitbart ^ | JOHN BINDER
    In an editorial by the Los Angeles Times, the use of taxpayer money to pay for illegal immigrants’ legal fees to fight deportation is heralded as a “worthwhile” plan. The LA Times Editorial Board writes that because some illegal immigrants do not have lawyers, it is the responsibility of U.S. taxpayers to pay for their attorneys: Having a lawyer can make all the difference in the world to someone facing deportation in federal immigration court, where the law is dizzyingly byzantine. Yet only 37% of potential deportees have one. Part of the problem is a lack of attorneys trained in...
  • Trump Ends Obama’s African Ebola Amnesty

    In a refreshing move, the Trump administration is eliminating one of Barack Obama’s many outrageous amnesty initiatives, this one involving illegal immigrants from African countries affected by the Ebola virus a few years ago. The Ebola amnesty scandal got buried in the hoopla of the administration’s broad executive order protecting millions of illegal alien Mexicans and Central Americans, but it was just as alarming. Launched in 2014, the Ebola reprieve was issued separately—and quietly—via a Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a humanitarian program that’s supposed to be short-term. Under the plan, the administration designated Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone for TPS...

    This entire situation is becoming tiring. The right decisions are not being made, or, are being blocked by those who do not agree with correct actions to take to solve the nation's problems. Illegal immigrants are STILL coming here along with the ones who are still living here and they hate us. Many Americans do not realize the animosity that many immigrants have toward us. However, let me tell you something. Go to another country (yes, I have lived overseas and have traveled extensively) and try out that attitude of animosity toward the natives and see how that works out...
  • Church is ‘gravely mistaken’ if she thinks migration is her real mission: Cardinal Sarah [Cath Cauc]

    The Church would ignore the "real crisis" she faces today if she focuses on social justice issues rather than her basic mission to evangelize, Cardinal Robert Sarah warns in a newly-published interview. “The Church is gravely mistaken as to the nature of the real crisis if she thinks that her essential mission is to offer solutions to all the political problems relating to justice, peace, poverty, the reception of migrants, etc. while neglecting evangelisation,” the cardinal told Aid to the Church in Need on April 18. Sarah, who is the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, said that while...

    Oregon police were hunting an ex-con Mexican national accused of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old Portland girl while her younger sister slept just a few feet away. Previously-deported Santiago Martinez-Flores, 48, has a decades old criminal history and already served time for assault, criminal mischief, unauthorized use of a vehicle and failure to perform the duties of a driver. He was deported in March 2001 after a two-year prison sentence but made his way back to the U.S. sometime before the February sexual assault in which he’s suspected, Fox 12 reported.

    Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg dismissed sanctuary cities on Tuesday, saying that those who oppose federal immigration laws should try to change them in legislatures. "Morning Joe" panelist Steve Rattner asked Bloomberg for his take on the cities that refuse to cooperate with federal officials on detaining and deporting illegal immigrants. "You cannot, Steve, have everybody deciding which laws they should obey," Bloomberg said. "The law is the law."

    WASHINGTON — President Trump reportedly backed off his demand that Congress include a down payment for a wall spanning the entire U.S.-Mexico border in a crucial spending bill that must pass by Friday night to keep the government funded. Republican lawmakers have urged the president to focus on border security in general instead of the wall, which Democrats have called a poison pill that would cause them to reject the bill and shut down the government. Trump told a group of conservative reporters he invited to the White House on Monday that he was open to getting funding for the...

    The White House sought Monday to calm a jittery Washington ahead of a showdown with Congress over spending, and President Trump softened his demand that a deal to keep the federal government open include money to begin construction on his long-promised border wall. Despite one-party control at both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, the brinkmanship that came to define spending battles in the Obama years has tumbled into the Trump era, as have the factional divisions over strategy and priorities that have gripped the GOP for a decade. But with a Friday deadline looming to pass a new spending bill, the...

    California State Senate President Pro Tem Kevin De Léon (D-Los Angeles) said last Tuesday that “half his family” was in the country illegally, using false documents, and eligible for deportation under President Trump’s new executive order against “sanctuary” jurisdictions. De Léon, who introduced the bill, made his remarks at a hearing in Sacramento on SB54, the bill to make California a “Sanctuary State.” He said (at 1:27:34 in the video that follows): … I can tell you half of my family would be eligible for deportation under [President Donald Trump’s] executive order, because if they got a false Social Security...

    Ontario - New figures released by the federal government show that illegal border crossings into Canada continue to rise, with 877 people picked up in March by the RCMP, an increase over the 658 people picked up in February and the 315 in January. The numbers do not include those people coming into Canada through legal entry points along the Canada=U.S. border, nor do they include those immigrants that haven't been caught, so the number of asylum seekers could be much higher, according to CBC Canada. Perhaps even more worrisome is the fears that criminals may be coming into the...

    The U.S. Department of Justice signaled its intent Friday to follow through on a widespread immigration crackdown promised by President Donald Trump, warning “sanctuary” jurisdictions across the nation, including California, that the federal government would withhold law enforcement funds if they don’t cooperate with immigration authorities. In California, Attorney General Xavier Becerra issued a strong rebuke to the demand letter from U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

    Rome (AFP) - Pope Francis on Saturday described some of Europe's refugee centres as "concentration camps" as he paid tribute to an unknown Christian woman slain for her faith in front of her Muslim husband. "These refugee camps -- so many are concentration camps, crowded with people... because international accords seem more important than human rights," Francis said in impromptu remarks at a ceremony in memory of modern day Christian martyrs. Departing from his prepared script and appearing unusually emotional as he spoke, the 80-year-old pontiff said he wanted the woman to be remembered along with all the other martyrs...
  • Did Obama Let MS-13 Slide To Bolster Support for Democrats

    IWB ^ | Mark Angelides
    The Criminal Super Gang, MS-13, has a 30 year history in the US and yet Donald Trump appears to be the first President to attempt a serious take-down. Under Barrack Obama, several “fiscal targeting operations” were attempted to reduce their money supply, and massive operations put in place against “some” of the members (6 to be precise). But the one thing that could have actually destroyed them outright was never even considered: stopping illegal immigration. 60-70 percent of current U.S. members in MS-13 are immigrants, the majority of which could be illegal, and the remaining percent are likely born to...

    Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly says the Trump administration hopes to follow through on President Donald Trump's promise to build a wall along the border between the United States and Mexico before the fall. "We hope to begin construction by the end of the summer," he told CNN's Kate Bolduan Friday on "At This Hour." "Clearly, we're not going to build a wall in an afternoon." Kelly and Attorney General Jeff Sessions are touring the border and met Thursday with law enforcement personnel from several federal agencies at a federal building in El Paso, Texas, which includes immigration courts and...
