    NPR Cries..... A federal appeals court panel ruled on Monday that the Trump administration can end humanitarian protections for some 300,000 immigrants living in the United States, clearing the way for their potential deportation starting next year. The 9th Circuit Appeals Court's decision affects citizens from El Salvador, Haiti, Nicaragua and Sudan, many of whom have lived in the U.S. for decades, have U.S.-born children and are considered essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic. At issue is the termination of Temporary Protected Status, a form of humanitarian relief created by Congress and administered by the Department of Homeland Security. TPS...
  • USA provided greater religious freedom for European immigrants

    Christianity is the foundation of our Western Society. However, some deny its historical and current benefits. Teleios evaluated societal measures influencing wellbeing in religious groups immigrating for greater religious freedom from Europe to the 13 British colonies that would become the USA. Teleios tested the hypothesis if living in a freer society and being able to express the Christian religion improved potential measures for wellbeing. We found strong evidence that Christians who immigrated from Europe developed societies built upon biblically based principles that offer enhanced educational, governmental, religious and economic benefits. Such societies furnish their citizens the opportunity to live...

    Swedish police and civilian workers at a police station in the no-go Stockholm suburb of Rinkeby will receive police escorts to and from the building to maintain their safety. The workers at the newly built police station in Rinkeby have previously expressed concerns that locals, criminals, and youths might follow them home or slash their tyres. As the new station is set to open, police have decided to enact evening patrols to escort workers to and from the station. Jörgen Ohlsson, the station’s project manager, said the patrols could include escorting workers to the local metro or standing watch outside,...

"Through powerful four-color portraits—personally painted by the President himself—and their accompanying stories, OUT OF MANY, ONE reminds us of the countless ways in which America has been strengthened by the individuals who have come...

    A divided panel on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ruled Wednesday in favor of the Trump administration’s new “public charge” rule, conflicting with other recent circuit rulings. Both the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh and the Second Circuit have recently issued rulings against the Trump administration's public charge rule.

    Patrick Rooney, Founder of Old School™, laments the slide of heroic white, conservative men into "grumpy old men." Meanwhile, it is often taking black men, black women, and black woman IMMIGRANTS to inspire new blood into the movement, too often leaving "grumpy old men" in the dust. One of the reasons for the existence of Old School™ is to "teach old dogs new tricks"—to re-inspire "grumpy old men" to return to being the "happy warriors" of old. It is not too late—for grumpy old men or America!

    Viral video out of Seattle shows a mob of African immigrants assaulting a white man in the street while screaming racial epithets and proudly flying the flag of the terrorist separatist group the Oromo Liberation Front. The mob is seen swarming the man -- outnumbering him around 7 to 1 -- and punching him repeatedly and kicking him while he's on the ground as shocked onlookers scream in horror. The woman who filmed the incident is heard shouting at the top of her lungs to try and get the mob to stop and saying: "They're beating him! He's a white...
  • We Have the Right to Cultural Preservation

    07/27/2020 12:28:54 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 7 replies ^ | July 27, 2020 | Jeff Davidson
    As a by-product of the worldwide virus, the flow of migrants between nations, for now, has slowed to a trickle. Still, the presumption that anyone who seeks to control immigration, and to maintain the key facets of their culture, is automatically racist or xenophobic is beyond absurd. In 2015, Europe received one million migrants on top of a massive influx that had already arrived. The 500 million population of Europe can, perhaps, absorb such waves but many communities are unduly impacted. One long-standing community in Germany, totaling 102 people, braced for 750 asylum seekers.This bureaucratic blunder represented nothing less than...

    Immigration Will Go Bust Without $1.2B Bailout By Charles Benavidez - Jul 02, 2020, 6:00 PM CDT United States With the Trump administration on a continued anti-immigration tear as a campaign-hedge for November 2020 elections, and as the COVID-19 pandemic rampages on, the American immigration system—largely funded by visa and green card applications—is basically running out of money. Now, it may have to temporarily lay off thousands of workers, and thus potentially bring immigration to a near halt from its already painfully slow crawl.

    On November 19, 1863, Abraham Lincoln headed on horseback through the streets of Gettysburg to deliver his most famous speech. He rode past the impressive gatehouse at the Evergreen Cemetery to the newly dug graves of Union soldiers that lay beyond it. The gatehouse was the home of a German immigrant family that had endured the battle and spearheaded the first burials after it ended.

    Fifty-one percent of liberals and 45 percent of Democrats told a pollster that too few of their fellow Americans are willing to fill construction, technology, hospitality, and other service jobs, regardless of pay. From June 23 to June 28, Rasmussen asked its panel of 1,500 likely voters: People say immigrants fill construction, technology, hospitality and other service jobs that Americans don’t want. Are there Americans who would take those jobs if pay and working conditions were improved or are there just not enough Americans willing to do that kind of work? Most Americans recognized that their fellow citizens would work...

    Amid the pandemic, the SpaceX launch should inspire us to be risk-takers, trying new things and starting new ventures. We can only achieve great things if we don't let fear dictate how we live our lives. Two American astronauts, Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken, will strap themselves in the Dragon capsule, which sits on top of the Falcon 9 rocket — both built by Elon Musk’s company SpaceX — and depart for the International Space Station on May 27.This extraordinary event embodies much historic significance. The Falcon 9 rocket will be launched from the same launch pad at the Kennedy...

    The Democrats' new $3 trillion coronavirus relief legislation expands direct payment eligibility to many more people than last time, including undocumented immigrants who pay taxes. Each eligible person would receive $1,200 stimulus checks, up to $6,000 per household, according to the newly released legislation. For example, a married couple filing taxes jointly would receive $2,400. They would get an additional $1,200 for each of their dependents, up to three, for a maximum benefit of $6,000. Under the first round of checks, eligible individuals got a one-time payment of up to $1,200, or $2,400 per couple, plus $500 for each child...

    The flight from Italy was one of the last arrivals that day at the Stockholm airport. A Swedish couple in their 50s walked up and loaded their skis into Razzak Khalaf's taxi. It was early March and concerns over the coronavirus were already present, but the couple, both coughing for the entire 45-minute journey, assured Khalaf they were healthy and just suffering from a change in the weather. Four days later, the Iraqi immigrant got seriously ill with COVID-19. Still not able to return to work, Khalaf is part of the growing evidence that those in immigrant communities in the...

    NEW YORK - Ulises García went from being a waiter to working at a laundromat. Yelitza Esteva used to do manicures and now delivers groceries. Maribel Torres swapped cleaning homes for sewing masks. The coronavirus pandemic has devastated sectors of the economy dominated by immigrant labor: Restaurants, hotels, office cleaning services, in-home childcare and hair and nail salons, among others, have seen businesses shuttered as nonessential. The Migration Policy Institute found that 20% of the U.S. workers in vulnerable industries facing layoffs are immigrants, even though they only make up 17% of the civilian workforce. And some of those immigrants,...

    The Supreme Court is making it harder for noncitizens who are authorized to live permanently in the United States to argue they should be allowed to stay in the country if they've committed crimes. The decision Thursday split the court 5-4 along ideological lines. The decision came in the case of Andre Barton, a Jamaican national and green card holder. In 1996, when he was a teenager, he was present when a friend fired a gun at the home of Barton's ex-girlfriend in Georgia. And in 2007 and 2008, he was convicted of drug possession in the state. His crimes...

    The U.S. Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a lower court's decision that an immigrant with lawful permanent resident status cannot fight deportation due to a previous offense, even though that crime was not grounds for his removal. In a 5-4 ruling with conservative justices on one side and liberals on the other, the court ruled for the Trump administration in holding that the statute in question, as drafted by Congress, requires deportation in the case of Andre Barton, even though the assault offenses that prevent him from appealing were not enough to deport him in the first place. "Removal of...

    Christina Segundo is angry. She’s a U.S. citizen, raising four children in Fort Worth with her husband. Friends around her are receiving $1,200 or more under the government’s colossal stimulus effort. But Segundo gets nothing. She and her immigrant husband file taxes jointly and he uses a federal ITIN, an individual taxpayer identification number. Such couples have been surgically excluded from help. Potentially millions of U.S.citizens will get no federal stimulus assistance under the $2 trillion pandemic aid package because there are also unauthorized immigrants in their families: The CARES Act excludes unauthorized immigrants and most U.S. citizens or legal...

    One of the nation’s most influential sheriffs on illegal immigration warned Monday that immigrants freed by judges concerned about the coronavirus spreading in jails will disappear after the crisis is over. “The question many people ask is, ‘Are they going to turn themselves in after the COVID-19 incident is over?'” said Bristol County, Massachusetts, Sheriff Thomas Hodgson. “And the answer is, no, of course not,” he said. A local judge has ordered Hodgson to release dozens of illegal immigrant inmates he had been holding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement. He told a Center for Immigration Studies Zoom panel that most...

    NEW YORK - The coronavirus pandemic has touched every part of New York City, but new data shows it is hitting especially hard in neighborhoods that tend to be poorer and might be more likely to have many people living under one roof. Here are the latest coronavirus developments in New York: Data released late Wednesday by city health officials shows that residents in the immigrant-rich Jackson Heights, Elmhurst and Corona sections of Queens have tested positive for the virus in far greater numbers and at higher rates per capita than in wealthy, mostly white parts of Manhattan and Brooklyn....
