    A pro-Trump immigrant from West Africa was pummeled and knocked to the ground over the weekend for wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat, Maryland police said. Montgomery County police on Monday announced two arrests in connection with the alleged politically-motivated beat-down. Atsu Nable told FOX5 DC that he was the one in the MAGA hat. He said the two men approached him Saturday in Germantown, outraged he was wearing it. He said one of the men struck him from behind, leaving him shocked.

    Acting U.S. Defence Secretary Patrick Shanahan has approved a request (on 9 April) to identify places to potentially house up to 5,000 unaccompanied migrant children, the Pentagon said on Wednesday. In March, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) requested Pentagon support to identify locations to house unaccompanied migrant children through Sept. 30.

    President Donald Trump should start acting like the head of a great nation in dealing with the large number of jobless immigrants on the border. The people coming to the Mexican border are essentially saying they think the United States is a great nation which can provide jobs their own countries cannot. A Great Nation helps people in other nations when it can. The United States under President Harry Truman was a great nation because it helped west European nations recover from the devastation their war had caused. The United States cannot provide jobs to everyone in the world, but...
  • George W. Bush Center: ‘America’s Story Is an Immigrant Story’

    here are no Americans in America and no history of America — just immigrants and their “story,” says a new video by former President George W. Bush’s Bush Center. “America’s story is an immigrant story,” says the video. “Now as before, American is a nation of immigrants,” says the video which refers to 280 million Americans — including many who voted for George W. Bush in 2000 — merely as an unnamed blob of “population,” “labor force,” “workers,” and even “natives.” American would be weak without immigrants, the video argues, as it declares that “immigrants make America strong.”

    The New York Times ^ | March 17, 2019 | Vanessa Erazo
    The cancellation of "One Day at a Time" hurts in a way the diversity numbers can't fully convey. In Netflix's Cuban-American family sitcom, "One Day at a Time," Rita Moreno's punchy one-liners are a complete delight. Justina Machado, who stars as single mom Penelope Alvarez, triggers a sobfest every time she delivers an utterly vulnerable monologue. The series tackles issues from homophobia to colorism with sensitivity and insight, and offers Latinos -- members of a woefully underserved demographic -- the chance to see ourselves, warts and all, while still reliably delivering laughs and earning rave reviews. Aside from being a...
  • Immigrant advocate in Arizona gets 18-month sentence in tax fraud case

    PHOENIX - A longtime advocate for immigrants in Arizona was sentenced Wednesday to 18 months in federal prison and ordered to pay $131,000 in restitution for a felony conviction stemming from his tax preparation business. Elias Bermudez had previously pleaded guilty to assisting in the preparation of false tax returns, acknowledging that he falsely added dependents, including three children who lived in Mexico, to his clients’ tax returns to maximize refundable credits. Bermudez, 68, led protests more than a decade ago against immigration laws and then-Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s crackdowns on immigrants. He is known for kneeling down in front of...

    The mother of slain University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts opened up her home to the teenage son of Mexican immigrants who worked with the man suspected of killing her daughter and left the small town because they feared it was unsafe. Laura Calderwood took in Ulises Felix, 17, after his parents left Brooklyn, Iowa, according to the Washington Post. The man accused of killing 20-year-old Tibbetts, Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 24, worked with Felix’s parents at a dairy farm in the small town.

    Another day, another revelation as the great fleecing of the U.S. taxpayer continues unabated. Let’s begin at the beginning.  Forty percent of Americans are now born out of wedlock.  Single parent families are associated with a long list of social maladies: “Children who grow up with only one of their biological parents (nearly always the mother) are disadvantaged across a broad array of outcomes. . . . they are twice as likely to drop out of high school, 2.5 times as likely to become teen mothers, and 1.4 times as likely to be idle — out of school and out of work...

    EL PASO, Texas (CBS4) — Hundreds of migrants turned themselves into Border Patrol agents Monday morning in the Lower Valley near the Ysleta port of entry. Border Patrol officials said this incident is becoming a pattern as apprehensions for the Border Patrol sector continue to rise... “The last number that we had was upwards of 400 individuals that crossed in the midway area and the Ysleta port of entry,” Romero said. The Border Patrol also said it’s unusual for large groups like this to present themselves in urban environments instead of more rural communities.

    President Trump's chief of staff John Kelly signed a memo late Tuesday allowing troops stationed at the border to act in a law enforcement capacity and use lethal force, if necessary, according to Tara Copp of Military Times. The new “Cabinet order” was signed by White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, not President Donald Trump. It allows “Department of Defense military personnel” to “perform those military protective activities that the Secretary of Defense determines are reasonably necessary” to protect border agents, including “a show or use of force (including lethal force, where necessary), crowd control, temporary detention. and cursory...

    Federal immigration officials say Oregon authorities prevented them from detaining for deportation an illegal immigrant from Mexico who is now charged in the brutal stabbing death of his wife, whose body was found in a ditch Sunday. The case marks the latest dispute between federal authorities and Oregon over the state's "sanctuary" laws regarding illegal immigrants. The suspect, identified as Martin Gallo-Gallardo, 45, had been released in March by the Multnomah County Sheriff's Office after prosecutors dismissed assault allegations against him. His wife and daughter stopped cooperating and a grand jury refused to indict him, FOX 12 Oregon reported.

    A Somalian whose deportation from Britain was dramatically halted after airline passengers staged a mutiny demanding his release can be exposed today as a convicted gang rapist who was being kicked out of the country because of his sickening crime. Officials escorting Yaqub Ahmed on a flight from Heathrow to Turkey were forced to abandon his deportation when around a dozen holidaymakers who felt sorry for him angrily intervened shortly before take-off. At one stage during the astonishing episode, filmed on mobile phones, one traveller complained: ‘They’re separating him from his family’, while others chanted ‘take him off the plane’....

    A Muslim migrant in Germany beheaded his one-year-old baby daughter and stabbed his wife at a train station in Hamburg. Merkel’s government has banned reporting of this gruesome act. But now video has surfaced. The murder was in April. German media will not report on the dangers in their country.Robert Spencer at Jihad Watch reported: snip We reported on this incident back in April, translating a German report, since the English-language media didn’t find this incident newsworthy. But at that time, the fact of the beheading was not being reported, and now the German authorities have apparently banned all reporting...

    Just a third of Americans can pass a multiple choice "U.S. Citizenship Test," fumbling over such simple questions as the cause of the Cold War or naming just one thing Benjamin Franklin is famous for. And of Americans 45 and younger, the passing rate is a tiny 19 percent, according to a survey done for the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. Worse: The actual test only requires that 60 percent of the answers be correct. In the survey, just 36 percent passed.

    Miami Herald ^ | 22sep18 | By Daniel Shoer Roth
    A green card is no longer an immigrant’s insurance policy against deportation in the Donald Trump era. Documented immigrants can now be deported from the United States if they break the rules of federal and state programs that offer public benefits to immigrants. New guidelines implemented last week by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services say that immigrants who abuse “any program related to the reception of public benefits” will be summoned to appear before an immigration court. Immigrants will be subjected to removal procedures if there’s evidence of “fraud or willful misrepresentation” in connection “with any official matter or application...

    Mollie Tibbetts, a 20-year-old sophomore at the University of Iowa, was last seen alive while jogging the evening of July 18. This week, authorities said that she was killed and that her body was dumped in a cornfield. On Tuesday, the police arrested a Mexican immigrant named Cristhian Bahena Rivera as a suspect. A warrant filed by the Poweshiek County Sheriff's Office said Rivera confessed to the police that he pursued Tibbetts and later concealed her body. The police charged Rivera with first-degree murder, which in Iowa comes with a possible penalty of life in prison. By Wednesday, law-enforcement officials...
