    Following the influx of illegal immigrant minors from Central America, an official at the federal agency charged with protecting public health describes Barack Obama as “the worst pres we have ever had,” an “amateur” and “Marxist,” according to internal emails obtained by Judicial Watch. JW got the records as part of an investigation into the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) activation of an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to deal with the barrage of illegal alien minors last summer. Tens of thousands of Central Americans came into the United States through the Mexican border and contagious diseases—many considered to be eradicated...

    Business Review USA ^ | 7/2/14 | Rebecca Castrejon
    The richest businessman in Mexico, Carlos Slim, has cut ties with Donald Trump after the latter offended Mexicans during his speech announcing his run for the presidency of the United States. The magnates were going to launch a television mega project with Larry King, named Ora TV, which would be a producing company financed by America Movil. The partnership is over as of June 29 after Trump carried on offending the neighboring country. Slim’s spokesperson, and son-in-law, Arturo Elias, stated: “Working with someone that narrow-minded was not going to work out.” He added that the comments were racist, especially when...

    President Obama’s admission that some “gang-bangers” are crossing America’s southern border sparked a direct response from GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump, who has been criticized for his remarks on illegal immigration during his official campaign announcement. “Mr. Trump has repeatedly provided additional context to his remarks from June 16th, 2015 during which he addressed the severely detrimental effects of illegal immigration and described some of the issues that are brought to the United States as a result, much like President Obama has done today,” reads Trump’s press release. “There are few occasions on which I agree with statements made by...

    Modern-day clickbait aggregators who fancy themselves journalists collectively gasped when GOP candidate Donald Trump clearly and succinctly condemned the raw deal Mexico gave the U.S., especially when it comes to immigration. “Presidential candidate Donald Trump painted himself further into a corner Wednesday by spewing another batch of anti-immigrant rhetoric on CNN,” declared The Huffington Post’s Michael McLaughlin for LatinoVoices.

    It all started yesterday while poring over 33 years of Jeb Bush’s tax returns. In a demonstration of transparency, Bush, the former Florida governor and Republican presidential hopeful, tweeted out his e-mail address, inviting those curious about his finances to “email me directly.” (As governor, Bush encouraged Floridians to e-mail jeb@jeb.org. Many got a personal response). Bush campaign aides said jeb@jeb2016.com was meant for use by voters eager to hear from the candidate himself, but this reporter decided to give it a shot. So, I drafted an email, knowing that it might drop into the dustbin of cyberspace. Rather than...

    Donald Trump posted a statement from his campaign to Instagram on Wednesday to comment on a town hall event where President “Barrack Obama” (his misspelling) referred to some illegal immigrants as “gang-bangers.” While Trump plugged his “Make America Great Again” campaign and said that this was one of his rare agreements with the president, he said it was hypocritical that the liberal media’s not generating public outcry against Obama when his statements were “far less controversial.” Obama’s statements came off a question about the Affordable Care Act, where he went on to say that policy reform was necessary for resource...

It’s far worse than anybody knows.” Trump offered a rambling monologue that stressed his ability to solve the nation’s problems because of his business acumen and his smarts – particularly compared to the “third-rate” governors and senators running in the Republican primary.”

    I was skeptical that Trump was really running, but now that the boats are burned behind him, watch out. He is set to be Herman Cain squared — an early-nominating-season phenomenon with a massive media megaphone. As for his instantly notorious Mexico comments, they did more to insult than to illuminate, yet there was a kernel in them that hit on an important truth that typical politicians either don’t know or simply fear to speak. “When Mexico sends its people,” Trump said, “they’re not sending their best.” This is obviously correct. We aren’t raiding the top 1 percent of Mexicans...

They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.” Coulter, who takes a hard line on illegal immigration, didn’t defend Trump directly but said she believes the government should be using...

    Republican presidential candidate and US Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) saw his support drop dramatically in a new poll of Republican primary voters released Wednesday. The CNN poll showed that Rubio’s support has plunged to 6% among likely Republican primary voters. In May, he was leading the GOP pack with 14%. This drop represents the largest shift among any Republican candidate. Where most candidates remained statistically within the margin of error, Rubio’s drop is the only significant movement up or down among candidates.

    Tens of thousands of illegal immigrant women and children streamed across the U.S. border last year seeking asylum and protected status, claiming a "credible fear" of going home to the violence in Central America. President Obama addressed the crisis through increased border enforcement, more detention beds, more immigration judges and pressure on political leaders in their home countries. But a year later, new data obtained exclusively by Fox News shows the policy isn't stopping the influx. Not only are illegal immigrant women and children continuing to cross the border in large numbers, but the majority charged with crimes aren't even...

    The Obama administration has ordered agents to begin ignoring many of the illegal immigrants they encounter in local prisons and jails, as the president begins to implement a lesser-known part of his deportation amnesty program — a move that’s not sitting well with either side in the immigration debate. The move is a nod to sanctuary cities, who had begun to refuse to cooperate with federal authorities on immigration enforcement. After having court challenges, Mr. Obama bowed to those cities, counties and states and announced the changes as part of his November 2014 amnesty policy. Agents will still troll local...

    The Obama Administration’s release of illegal immigrants who went on to commit more than 100 murders was defended on “humanitarian” grounds by ICE Director Sarah Saldana. “These individuals all faced prison in their home countries,” Saldana said. “These foreign prisons are not like our prisons. There’s no exercise equipment and no satellite TV. Sanitation and hygiene are of the lowest sort imaginable. Sending these people to those Hellholes would have been inhumane.” The inhumanity of the murders subsequently committed against Americans by the release of these foreign criminals was labeled “a tolerable risk” by the ICE Director. “Compared to the...

    Goodbye to the prosperous country founded by overwhelmingly Protestant colonists in the 18th century. Hello to the third-world multicultural mélange with a distinctly Mexican accent, appalling cultural norms, and a clearly leftist political orientation. Such is the vision of the United States given by no-holds-barred pundit Ann Coulter in her latest book, Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole. Coulter’s subtitle summarizes her basic thesis -- that America’s immigration policies since the decisive Edward Kennedy immigration bill in 1965 have altered our demographic makeup so radically that the nation will be unalterably degraded...

    David Muir is the anchor of ABC World News Tonight, which usually broadcasts in English. Tonight, the news personality had a sit down interview with the Presidential hopeful Jeb Bush that was completely conducted in Spanish. Republicans know that Latinos are a major force and they are going after our vote to secure the White House. Muir was direct and asked what would be Jeb's top priority within the first hundred days, if he wins the race. "The most important thing is to clear up the atmosphere in Washington where problems are beginning to get solved behind political lines and...
  • Facing uphill battle in Iowa, Bush turns to immigration

    Facing an uphill battle in Iowa, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush urged conservatives to accept his more welcoming position on immigration as a way to increase their chances of winning the White House in 2016. Iowa Republicans so far are leaning toward the conservative Republican governor of Wisconsin, Scott Walker, as their choice when the state holds the first nominating contest next Feb. 1. Recent polls put Bush farther back in the pack, and one problem he has is his support for granting legal status for illegal immigrants. Conservatives like Iowa Republican Representative Steve King call this amnesty. Bush’s challenge...

    At his first official stop as a surrogate for his father's presidential campaign, George P. Bush told supporters Wednesday in Nevada, "My dad is the right man at the right time for this country." The eldest son of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush addressed a crowd of about fifty people at an upscale Mexican restaurant, Mundo, a few miles from the Las Vegas strip. Part of his message? Getting caucus support in Nevada, a key early-voting state in the primaries. "It is projected that there will be 45,000 caucus-goers in this state, that it'll probably only take about 10,000 supporters...

    Mexico now deports more Central American migrants than the United States, a dramatic shift since the U.S. asked Mexico for help a year ago with a spike in illegal migration, especially among unaccompanied minors. Between October and April, Mexico apprehended 92,889 Central Americans. In the same time period, the United States detained 70,226 “other than Mexican” migrants, the vast majority from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador. That was a huge reversal from the same period a year earlier, when the wave of migrants and unaccompanied minors from Central America was building. From October 2013 to April 2014, the United States...

    Presidential candidate Donald Trump is under fire for his statement against Mexican migrants in the U.S. Trump, who announced his candidacy on Tuesday, said in his hour-long speech that Mexico was "not sending its brightest minds to the U.S., instead it was sending drugs, crime, and rapists across the border illegally," Fox News Latino wrote. http://www.latinopost.com/articles/19478/20150618/donald-trump-slammed-border-comments-against-mexican-migrants-presidential-candidate.htm

    The Facebook CEO and his wife, Priscilla Chan, gave the money to the “I’m In” campaign launched by TheDream.us, a national scholarship fund for undocumented immigrants. The fund targets students who came to the U.S. as children and received Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival status, an immigration policy started by President Obama that gives them exemption from deportation and allows them to work. Zuckerberg wrote on his Facebook page that he sees the fund’s efforts as an important step in educating marginalized youth in America. “America was founded as a nation of immigrants,” he says. “We ought to welcome smart...

    While the race for the GOP presidential nomination kicks into high gear, Jeb Bush continues to stand out from his competitors on one key issue; immigration. Unlike the more hawkish views of his opponents in the Republican field, Bush is unapologetic in his stance on the hot-button issue. While he agrees the border should be secured, the former Florida governor’s answer to the millions of undocumented workers already in the country would be to make them learn English and pay taxes and fines rather than deporting them outright.
