  • How Trump’s Plan for Immigrants on Welfare Could Hurt a Million New Yorkers (100 year old law)

    Buying fresh vegetables for children, heating an apartment, using Medicaid to manage diabetes. Those are all legal means of support provided by the government for low-income residents of the United States. But a new rule in the works from the Trump administration would make it difficult, if not impossible, for immigrants who use those benefits to obtain green cards. **SNIP** The administration’s plan is based on the more than 100-year-old law of “public charge,” later defined by government guidance in 1999: A person who is very likely to become “primarily dependent” on government services cannot become a legal permanent resident....

    Police in Melbourne have been slammed for making no arrests after residents of the city’s north-west suburbs were terrorised by gangs of African youths who bragged “police can’t touch us” and branded frightened families “racist”. Despite its sending dozens of armed officers in riot gear to Taylors Hill as more than 100 teenagers gathered “for war”, and telling residents to “stay inside and lock their doors” as rival gangs ran amok, police claimed there had been “no threat to community safety”. According to The Age, there was a heavy police presence at the scene for several hours, including cavalry officers...
  • Baby Boom or Bust? Media Gets it Wrong – Again

    According to recent media accounts, America is in a population death spiral. Open-borders activists have seized on the narrative to promote ever-looser immigration policies.But the narrative is wrong.In fact, women in the U.S. are more likely to be mothers than in the past, and they are having more children, reports the Pew Research Center.The Pew study found that women have 2.07 children during their lives on average – up from 1.86 in 2006, the lowest on record. Family size is also up. In 2016, mothers at the end of their childbearing years had had about 2.42 children, compared with 2.31...

    In case you did not know, it appears like George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist, reptilian mastermind, alleged Israel hater and proud Nazi collaborator (as per his own admission in PBS’ 60 Minutes interview) has a son, Alex Soros respectively. Before moving on with our story, you should know that George Soros is a Hungarian Jew. And yes, he’s a Jew who collaborated with the Nazis during WW2. Don’t believe me? Here’s an excerpt from the 60 Minutes interview, where Soros Senior admits that he helped the Nazi regime in his youth, that he has no regrets about it, as someone...

    First Lady Melania Trump’s parents, Viktor and Amalija Knavs took the oath to become U.S. citizens on Thursday but NBC Nightly News was not having it. The broadcast network speculated that they received special treatment in the process and possibly used chain migration, a program the President opposes, even though the process still exists and still legal. “Now to new questions tonight about a possible double standard when it comes to the first family,” declared a seemingly offended Lester Holt. “First lady Melania Trump's parents becoming brand new U.S. citizens today apparently through a process that President Trump has repeatedly...
  • Army stops discharging immigrants for now

    The U.S. Army has stopped discharging immigrant recruits who enlisted seeking a path to citizenship -- at least temporarily. A memo shared with The Associated Press on Wednesday and dated July 20 spells out orders to high-ranking Army officials to stop processing discharges of men and women who enlisted in the special immigrant program, effective immediately. It was not clear how many recruits were impacted by the action, and the Pentagon did not immediately respond to requests for comment about the memo. "Effective immediately, you will suspend processing of all involuntary separation actions," read the memo signed by Acting Assistant...

    Ezra Levant of "The Rebel" media reported on Friday that the High Court decision of Tommy Robinson's appeal will be released by the three-judge panel this week (Tuesday July 31st or Wednesday August 1st). Robinson was arrested May 25th in Leeds, England outside of an industrial scale child sex abuse trial involving Muslim defendants (27 men and two women accused). He was livestreaming when police arrested him accusing him of breaching the peace. Within hours and with only a court appointed attorney in the court room (his legal counsel could not get there on such short notice) Robinson was sentence...

    United Airlines is donating free flights to reunite immigrant children who have been separated from their parents at the southern U.S. border. The move was announced this week on Facebook by FWD.us, a pro-immigration organization established by leaders in the tech industry. 'We have great news to share! A growing community of support is coming together to reunite families who were separated at the border. We are so thankful and happy to announce that United Airlines is jumping in and helping,' FWD. us wrote.

    SAN DIEGO — The Trump administration said Thursday that more than 1,800 children separated at the U.S.-Mexico border have been reunited with parents and sponsors but hundreds remain apart, signaling a potentially long wait for anguished families. The federal government was under a Thursday deadline to reunify more than 2,500 children separated from their parents under a new immigration policy designed to deter immigrants from coming here illegally. The policy quickly backfired amid global outrage from political and religious leaders and daily headlines about crying children taken from their parents. President Donald Trump ended the practice, but a federal judge...

    Some 13.5 percent of the U.S. population -- 44 million -- is foreign born, the highest level ever, and many are not proficient in English, choosing to speak Spanish at home instead. A report from the Migration Policy Institute found that 22 percent of the U.S. population does not speak English at home. The share was highest in Nevada at 31 percent and Florida at 29 percent. The report revealed a new trend in migration to the U.S where immigrants are dispersed throughout the nation instead of clustering in a few states and cities. For example, while the number of...

    Europe must turn back the boats, the Czech Republic has said, warning the current approach of resettling migrants across the continent is the “road to hell”, and making illegal immigration worse. Prime Minister Andrej Babiš restated his nation’s position of not taking any third world migrants from other EU nations after Italy asked fellow bloc members to take a share of a batch of hundreds picked up by Brussels border force Frontex in the Mediterranean on Saturday. “[Like other European leaders], I received a copy of the letter from Prime Minister [Giuseppe] Conte, … in which he asks the EU...

    This is the land of opportunity, and anyone who wants the come here can…legally. That’s not the issue. For the Trump White House, it’s been their stated position to shift our immigration policy toward allowing more high-skilled workers into this country.  As for the families of the low-skilled working immigration population in the country, 51 percent (76 percent counting immigrant-led households with children) are collecting some sort of check from our welfare services. Is that good? No. Does that mean we shut it all down? No. That figure comes from the Center for Immigration Studies, who noted the need for...

    Former secretary of state Madeline Albright castigated the Trump Administration's opposition to unconstrained illegal immigration, calling it "undemocratic and essentially similar to what a fascist would do. Treating people differently because of their race or ethnicity is something that Hitler did. If a German like Chancellor Merkel realizes it's wrong to exclude Africans and Asians, then why can't Trump realize it's wrong to exclude Mexicans?" "It's not as if we don't have room for immigrants in America," Albright observed. "Homes in America are much bigger than they were a generation ago. Almost every family has underutilized space—a spare bedroom, a...

    Even though the Fourth of July is seen as a holiday of unity for all Americans, there were still some in the political world who chose to use the holiday to send a partisan message. In particular, Democratic Senator and potential 2020 candidate Kamala Harris tweeted odd political commentary on Wednesday’s holiday, erroneously claiming that “eight immigrants” signed the Declaration of Independence. ....The point is also strange because America was not an independent nation at the time and therefore had no immigration laws of its own yet. It is safe to say the internet reacted badly to the Democrat Senator’s...

    A Rasmussen poll shows that 36 percent of Democrats and 45 percent of liberals want to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, according to a Rasmussen poll. Fifty-two percent of Democrats and 65 percent of liberals also say “the government is too aggressive … in deporting those who are in this country illegally,” according to the poll. That response is a big problem for Democratic politicians because the anti-ICE views are a huge outlier among voters, yet are thrilling the Democrats’ base in the primary elections. In a June 26 primary in New York, for example, Democratic leader...

    This Fourth of July, nearly 14,000 immigrants become America’s newest citizens, swearing the oath of allegiance at 27 naturalization ceremonies across the nation that coincide with the country’s 242nd birthday and the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. “When oath ceremonies are tied to the Fourth of July, it’s a message that immigrants believe in this country. It’s a beautiful and emotional thing,” Joshua Hoyt, executive director of the National Partnership for New Americans, said. “United nations, from Albania to Yemen, are represented in the ceremonies.” Hoyt added that NPNA believes “naturalization is good for the immigrants, their...

Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said that his two-year-old daughter Yanela was with his wife Sandra in a shelter. Mr Varela Hernandez, a ship’s captain from Puerto Cortes, Honduras, said he had not spoken to them, but was informed on Wednesday that they were in custody in Texas. “My heart broke because it's my little girl,”...

    Nearly 500 migrant children of the more than 2,000 who were separated from their parents at the U.S.–Mexico border have been reunited since May, a senior Trump administration official told the Associated Press. The official told the news agency that those children were separated from their families because of President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy. The measure, which was first announced in April, seeks to aggressively prosecute any adult crossing the southern border illegally. The policy drew widespread, bipartisan condemnation for resulting in the separation of thousands of migrant children from their parents. Upon announcing the Trump administration policy, Attorney General...
