    President Donald Trump’s controversial senior advisor and speechwriter, Stephen Miller, has led White House efforts to undercut an initiative by Italy to place the migration crisis at the center of this week’s Group of Seven major summit meeting starting Friday in Sicily. For Italy, the summit in Taormina, Sicily, was to provide a poignant opportunity to raise awareness of the plight of hundred of thousands of refugees who cross the Mediterranean Sea to Italy’s shores each year, and to reach agreement on a plan to find them permanent homes....

    On the morning of Dec. 2, 2015, Farook and Malik entered the Inland Regional Center armed with assault rifles and handguns and opened fire on a group holding a holiday party. 14 people were killed and 22 more were injured.

A few hours after the mass shooting, authorities followed a tip to the couple’s home in Redlands. As officers approached, the couple fled in a dark SUV. A police pursuit ensued, ending back in San Bernardino, where...

  • Non-Western Immigrants Consume 59% Of Denmark’s Tax Revenue

    National Economics Editorial ^ | May 23, 2017 | Staff
    A recent study conducted by Denmark’s Ministry of Finance concluded that in 2014, immigrants and their descendants cost Danish taxpayers at net loss of 28 billion Crowns per year. Furthermore, when Western immigrants were removed from the equation, the net cost rose to 33kr billion. Compare this to tax receipts from ethnic Danes, who contributed a surplus of 56kr billion in 2014... In short: 59% of the tax surplus collected from native Danes is spent on ethnic minorities, who are a massive drain on the system. This would be roughly equivalent to America’s federal government spending $2.1 trillion per year...

    "Sanctuary cities lose access to federal grants that require complying with federal immigration law – cue the histrionics" Late on Monday, Attorney General Jeff Session issued a memorandum to all the “grant-making components” within the Justice Department cutting off any grants to sanctuary jurisdictions. In what will no doubt be a surprise to many in the media who misinterpreted the April injunction issued by Judge William Orrick (an Obama appointee) in the lawsuit filed by the City of San Francisco and Santa Clara County, Sessions’ action complies fully with that order. The May 22 memorandum outlines that any city or...

    Actually, no, candlelight vigils aren’t the answer. Neither is diversity. The answer is we have to kill them. We have to shatter their organization, chase them to the ends of the earth, and take them out of the game. Or it will be our little girls next. Last night, watching the network news, the serious-voiced man spoke as the camera panned over an impromptu memorial service in Manchester. He talked about how moving it was to see people come together, how diverse this almost totally white crowd was, and how events like this bring out the best in us. Like...

    President Donald Trump’s budget proposal will limit eligibility for two tax credits, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney told reporters on Monday, as the administration attempts to convince Congress to overhaul programs benefitting poorer Americans. According to documents released by the White House in advance of the full budget on Tuesday, Trump’s budget would limit eligibility for the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit to recipients “who are authorized to work in the U.S.” The EITC is a benefit for people with low to moderate income, and the child tax credit similarly benefits low-income households....

    Ramon Ruiz Ortiz of Moreno Valley went to San Bernardino’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services office at 10 a.m. May 11 to interview for a green card giving him permanent residency. By 7 p.m., he’d been deported to Tijuana. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, officials said he applied using a false name and that he had been removed previously and then had returned here illegally, making him ineligible for a green card, according to ICE. Now, his family and an attorney representing the Mexican Consulate in San Bernardino are trying to figure out what happened to the man...

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Fears of deportation have placed a cloud over a Sacramento church. The Del Paso church La Vida serves as a sanctuary for the local Hispanic community. Federal immigration agents were caught staking out at the church during services. But Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents have a policy to avoid sensitive places, including houses of worship. Pastor Alex Vaiz’s Sacramento church is a safe place for people from all walks of life. “A good number of our church are immigrants,” said he said. But Vaiz says that sanctuary is now threatened, after federal immigration agents staked out across...

    Schools have become the crucible for intimidation and recruitment into the Mara Salvatrucha, or MS-13, gang on Long Island and around the country. One Long Island mother, who wanted to remain anonymous for fear of reprisal from MS-13, said she and several other parents have taken their teenagers out of the local high school because they’ve become targets of the gang. Some children are being homeschooled and, in a few extreme cases, sent to stay with relatives out of the state. “I am scared to death,” the mother said. “It’s a crapshoot. I feel like we’re rolling the dice here,...
