    U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions said the Department of Justice (DOJ) is ready to clamp down on jurisdictions that create sanctuary policies to protect criminal illegal aliens. “Such policies cannot continue,” Sessions said. “They make our nation less safe by putting dangerous criminals back on the streets.” Sessions said the DOJ is poised to withhold or terminate grants, as well as claw back any funds awarded to a jurisdiction that willfully violates Section 1373 of the immigration law. At stake is more than $1.4 billion in grants.

    LOS ANGELES—A fast-tracked state Senate bill is awaiting a vote that could turn California into a "sanctuary state." But county sheriffs say it goes too far.Senate bill (SB) 54 goes beyond California's 2014 Trust Act, which prevents local jails from holding people for extra time based on their immigration status, except for those who have committed certain crimes, such as murder, robbery, rape, or kidnapping. SB 54 prohibits state and local law enforcement agencies from using resources—including facilities, equipment, and personnel—for immigration enforcement purposes without a court warrant. It also prohibits local agencies from sharing important information and leasing jail...

    Sociologists in the 1980s found out that when even minor infractions were ignored -- such as the breaking of windows, or vendors walking into the street to hawk wares to motorists in a traffic jam -- misdemeanors then spiraled into felonies as lawbreakers become emboldened. A federal law states that the president can by proclamation "suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate." Yet a federal judge ruled that president Trump cannot do what the law allows in...

    Only in America and other western countries do displays of patriotism and national pride appear to be branded as "racist" or bigoted, as students wearing patriotic attire at a local high school basketball game soon discovered. The issue started during a basketball game between Valley High and Des Moines North High School. Some students from Valley High supported their team by wearing patriotic attire such as red, white and blue shorts and shirts. On the surface nothing seems out of place. After all, why would wearing the flag of the country you're living in and displaying your patriotism be unacceptable?...

    Sweden’s immigration policy is honourable but has not come without social problems — which in turn herald a political shakeup. Sweden has accepted more refugees per capita than any other European country. At the height of the European refugee crisis in 2015, Sweden accepted 10,000 refugees per week. Sweden’s liberal immigration policy is honourable, but it does not come without problems. As social problems increase, Sweden’s far right party, the Sweden Democrats (SD) are gaining territory and will likely be the major winner in the next election. Sweden has 53 areas defined as particularly vulnerable areas, vulnerable areas, and risk...

    The number of people illegally crossing the U.S. southern border has dropped 40 percent in President Trump’s first full month in office, Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said Wednesday. U.S. Customs and Border Patrol reported that the number of illegal border crossings dropped from 31,578 to 18,762 persons. Kelly said border agents usually see a 10 to 20 percent increase in illegal immigrant apprehensions from January to February. “The drop in apprehensions shows a marked change in trends,” Kelly said. “Since the administration’s implementation of executive orders to enforce immigration laws, apprehensions and inadmissible activity is trending toward the lowest...

Certainly, it wasn't easy for those of African heritage who had not come here voluntarily and yet in their own way were immigrants themselves. There was discrimination and hardship and poverty. But, like you, they no doubt found inspiration in all those who had come before them. And they were able to muster faith that, here in...

    Attempts by migrants to break through the border into the Spanish exclaves of Ceuta and Melilla are becoming increasingly violent, the country’s security minister has warned. José Antonio Nieto said attempts to cross the border fence at Ceuta had become “more dangerous and violent” in recent months, with migrants not only using sticks but even iron bars and wire cutters to attack border guards. The Interior Ministry revealed 3,144 immigrants had illegally entered Spain so far this year, half of them by crossing into Ceuta and Melilla, which have the European Union’s only land border with Africa.

Upon doing so, he gained awareness of the critical issues in Malmo, attracting death threats along the way. Sweden’s decision to grant mass entry to immigrants has not served them well. The migrants have reportedly engendered most of the shootings and rapes throughout the land and those who dare to discuss the dangers they face are at risk of imprisonment. The situation is quite catastrophic.

Mass immigration, particularly illegal immigration, was a fait accompli. There is nothing the U.S. can do about it, and they must accept that America is “not their” country and that illegal aliens, particularly Latinos, “are not going to leave,” he said. “I am an immigrant, just like many of you,” Ramos said in Spanish, as...

The inspector general for the Social Security Administration discovered that a billion dollars in benefits was paid to people who had no Social Security numbers.  The benefits were paid to "representative payees" – people who were accepting benefit checks on behalf of another because the beneficiary was unable to manage his Social Security payments by himself. Seventeen percent of these representative payees were illegal aliens, according to the audit.

As you’ve heard, Trump referred to “[what happened] last night in Sweden.” On Twitter, smug critics circulated lists of anodyne events like concerts and road accidents and accused the president of inventing a terror attack. He didn’t cite a terror attack, though his words were characteristically imprecise. Two days later, as if to underscore that Trump had a point, riots erupted in a suburb of Stockholm. As Andrew Brown of the Guardian put it, Sweden looms large in the “fantasies of the outside world.” It...

A Day Without Immigrants is designed to show Americans what the country would be like without immigrants. Construction companies, restaurants, and other businesses with lots of immigrant workers are either closing down or donating today’s earnings to nonprofits that aid Latino communities.

The idea is to send a message that the “country is paralyzed” without immigrants, who do everything from run corporate boardrooms to clean them.

The order calls for immigrants “likely to need certain types of public aid” to be identified prior to entry, and for immigrants already using those services to be deported. The draft order also requires strict financial responsibility for relatives who promised to support immigrants who are instead now relying on social aid. The potential savings estimated by the order are as high as “$100 billion,”...

    Located in southern Illinois, eight miles from present-day St Louis, it was probably the largest North American city north of Mexico at that time. It had been built by the Mississippians, a group of Native Americans who occupied much of the present-day south-eastern United States, from the Mississippi river to the shores of the Atlantic. Cahokia was a sophisticated and cosmopolitan city for its time. Yet its history is virtually unknown by most Americans and present-day Illinoisans. ... Its mix of people made Cahokia like an early-day Manhattan, drawing residents from throughout the Mississippian-controlled region: the Natchez, the Pensacola, the...

    Reports are surfacing about a potential national strike by immigrants this week—the latest in a growing movement to highlight the role immigrants play in the face of Donald Trump’s increasingly harsh crackdown. According to Washingtonian magazine, a number of local restaurants and other businesses have begun bracing for a national strike on February 16, in which immigrants—particularly those from Latinx communities—have been urged to stay home from work. The grassroots protest has seemingly been organized by word of mouth and across Latinx social media channels. “One of our delivery men who’s Latino told our kitchen about it, and then it...

    The court's ruling “There is no evidence showing a risk to the United States in allowing aliens from these seven terror-associated countries to come in.” is a lie. Evidence now shows that acts of terrorism have been perpetrated by 72 individuals from the seven countries listed in Trump's Executive Order.

    In a conversation with Charles Murray, Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol explains his solution to the problems of the white working class: replacement. "Look, to be totally honest, if things are so bad as you say with the white working class, don’t you want to get new Americans in?"   After making the remark, Dr. Kristol joked, "I hope this thing isn’t being videotaped or ever shown anywhere. Whatever tiny, pathetic future I have is going to totally collapse."   The conversation took place February 7, 2017 at an American Enterprise Institute event called "It Came Apart: What's Next...

And of course almost everyone out there in the streets protesting Donald Trump. But walls are actually the least discriminatory object ever made. They don’t care who gets blocked. They don’t care if it’s your property that you’re trying to access. Walls truly are colorblind. So the argument...

Germany’s largest newspaper is reporting that hundreds of people have been caught buying illegal firearms in order to protect themselves from migrants. The largest of the websites selling guns has been shut down and its user data has been handed over to the police and journalists. According to claims elsewhere in the German media, people who were...
