    At least five people died on Sunday in South Texas after an S.U.V. carrying a dozen unauthorized immigrants crashed while trying to speed away from Border Patrol agents and local officials, the authorities said. Several others were injured when they were ejected from the S.U.V., which was speeding about 100 miles per hour when it rolled over, the authorities said. The crash happened in Dimmit County, about 125 miles southwest of San Antonio. Marion Boyd, the Dimmit County sheriff, said two United States citizens — the driver and one passenger — were trying to smuggle 12 unauthorized immigrants. He said...

    US Border Patrol accused of misleading immigrants while separating families: ‘They’re taking kids for baths and never returning'Federal public defenders say that immigration enforcement officials in the United States have repeatedly deceived immigrant parents arriving in the US seeking shelter from violent conditions in their home country, telling those individuals that they are taking their children away for baths or other benign reasons only to never return with them. Miguel Nogueres, a federal public defender in McAllen, Texas said that he’s seen a dramatic increase in the number of cases his office sees on any given day during the presidency...

    A commercial promoting pork says: "PUT SOME PORK ON YOUR FORK" The MAYOR REFUSES TO REMOVE PORK FROM SCHOOL CAFETERIA MENU AND EXPLAINS WHY: Muslim parents demanded the abolition of pork in all the school canteens of a Montreal suburb. The mayor of the Montreal suburb of Dorval has refused, and the town clerk sent a note to all parents to explain why. "Muslims must understand that they have to adapt to Canada and Quebec, its customs, its traditions, and its way of life, because that's where they chose to immigrate. "Muslims must understand that they have to integrate and...
  • Exit poll: Anti-immigrant SDS party leads in Slovenia election

    06/03/2018 11:49:52 AM PDT · by BBell · 18 replies
    Slovenia was a key transit point during the European refugee crisis with about half a million passing through in 2015.The SDS party of veteran right-wing leader Janez Jansa is leading in Slovenia's parliamentary election, according to an exit poll published after voting ended on Sunday. The exit poll for public television gave Jansa's SDS 24.4 percent with the "anti-system" party of comedian-turned-politician Marjan Sarec coming second on 12.6 percent. If confirmed in official results, the results mean a coalition government likely will have to be formed. Preliminary results will be issued by the State Election Commission later on Sunday. Jansa...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 27 May 2018 | John Semmens
    Democrats have yet to reach a consensus on what message might resonate most favorably with voters this Fall. Citing a poll finding that 60% of voters don't believe the Mueller probe has uncovered any crimes, Democratic strategist Jesse Ferguson suggested that "we need to focus our message on the successes of the investigation. Granted, there hasn't yet been any evidence of Russian collusion, but several people have been indicted for other crimes." Almost all of these "other crimes" involve lying to federal agents. The one seemingly significant crime not in this category is the charge that Paul Manafort engaged in...

    A New York lawyer who went on a rant targeting Spanish-speaking restaurant workers is reportedly being kicked out of his office space. The New York Post reported Thursday that Corporate Suites, the company that operates the business center in which attorney Aaron Schlossberg leases office space, has terminated its agreement with him. "His actions are just not consistent with our community and rules and regulations," the company's president, Hayim Grant, told the Post. "It’s totally contrary to everything we believe in as a company and personally." A BuzzFeed News reporter confirmed that Corporate Suites has ended its agreement with Schlossberg....

    The Trump administration is considering a policy change that might discourage immigrants who are seeking permanent residency from using government-supported health care, a scenario that is alarming some doctors, hospitals and patient advocates. Under the proposed plan, a lawful immigrant holding a visa could be passed over for getting permanent residency — a green card — if they use Medicaid, a subsidized Obamacare plan, food stamps, tax credits or a list of other non-cash government benefits, according to a draft of the plan published by The Washington Post. Even the use of such benefits by a child who is a...

    Seriously, if the law forces us to let them in - which is happening as we speak - why are we talking about "The Wall"? I suddenly realize today that the wall will be a big waste of money if we still have to let them in to apply for asylum. They are in whoever they are - no vetting possible. Period. And then we feed them - welfare - food stamps - free housing - free healthcare - free schools ... and here we go again. Or am I missing something?

    Organization says mixing immigration and terrorism harms MuslimsTwo anti-Trump organizations filed a lawsuit Monday arguing that a government report earlier this year linking immigrants to most of the country’s terrorism cases since 2001 is so misleading that it violates federal law. The request seeks to recruit federal judges to police the accuracy of the administration, in what — if it’s successful — could become a model for anti-Trump groups to push back on a president they see as having a tenuous connection to the truth. The January report concluded that 73 percent of the 549 people convicted of international terrorism...

    In 1996, right after voters in California banned affirmative action in employment and college admissions, minority student enrollment at two and four-year institutions plummeted. What has happened since though, is pretty remarkable. Of the 2.8 million students attending college in California today, two out of three come from racially and ethnically diverse populations. The most eye-popping increase in enrollment has been among Latinos. They now make up 43 percent of all college students in California. Twenty-six percent are white, followed by Asian and Pacific Islanders at 16 percent and African Americans at 6 percent. Business, education and civil rights groups...

    An army of a thousand migrants from Central America are marching through Mexico to the US where they hope to get in by any means - legal or not. The massive flood of migrants hail mostly from Honduras, where the country has become rife with gang violence and political unrest.The journey began on Sunday March 25 when 1,200 men, women and children gathered together to cross immigration checkpoints with a organization called Pueblos Sin Fronteras, meaning People Without Borders, according to BuzzFeed News.And the number is only growing as migrants walk to the border in 90-degree heat, sleep on the floor of town...

    The speed with which the German population is shrinking seems to be even too much for the statisticians of Destatis, the official German bureau of statistics, who posit that by 2060, with a zero level of net immigration, the German population will have declined to 60.2 million. However, our research team has found out that this number is far too optimistic: in 40 years Germany will have a population of 52.6 million people, a considerable 34% drop from the current 81 million inhabitants, and by the end of the century the native German population, the indigenous people without a migration...

    People living with disabilities, serious illness and the frailty of old age are bracing to lose caregivers due to changes in federal immigration policy. About 59,000 Haitians live in the U.S. under Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a humanitarian program that gave them permission to work and live here after the January 2010 earthquake devastated their country. Many work in health care, often in grueling, low-wage jobs as nursing assistants or home health aides. Now these workers’ days are numbered: The Trump administration decided to end TPS for Haitians. In Boston, the city with the third-highest Haitian population, the decision has...

    For months, Democrats promised to use their leverage on government spending to protect young immigrants at risk for deportation after President Trump canceled the program. More recently, they have demanded Congress pass universal background checks for gun buyers in the wake of another deadly school shooting. Now, with Congress less than two weeks from a funding deadline, Democrats are showing little willingness to corner Republicans on those issues. Their lack of appetite to provoke another showdown represents a shift after two previous fights resulted in brief government shutdowns and risks alienating the party’s liberal base crucial in midterm elections. But...
