    Homeland Security has discovered more three-year amnesty applications it approved in defiance of a federal judge’s firm injunction, lawyers told the court late Wednesday — less than a week after the judge delivered a vicious spanking to the administration for repeatedly bungling the case. Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said as they were preparing for their latest update to the court, they discovered three more three-year amnesties they had sent out, after Judge Andrew Hanen had ordered them not to. Mr. Rodriguez blamed “human error” and said the permits, known specifically as employment authorization documents or...

    Popular Kenyan deejay, Creme De La Creme, has found himself in the thick of things in the USA. The award-winning spin doctor was a really excited chap as he geared up to his performance in Dallas, Texas, next month. He's been constantly sharing his American tour excitement with his fans on his various social media forums. Sadly, sometimes even the best laid out plans go awry, and that's the current case with DJ Creme. After all the planning he put into ensuring he would be on time for the gig, he ended up getting snagged by immigration authorities in America...

H.R. 5203, the Visa Integrity and Security Act of 2016, would require that “a genetic test is conducted to confirm such biological relationship,” adding that “any such genetic test shall be conducted at the expense of the petitioner or applicant.”

    The Obama administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is “unethical” and “intentionally deceptive.” Harsh words, right? You’d expect that kind of criticism came from a political opponent or maybe even from a conservative commentator. But no – that’s not the case. In fact, that stinging assessment came from a district court in Texas – the same court that blocked President Obama’s unlawful Executive Order on immigration to award legal status and federal and state benefits to nearly five million aliens. That case is now pending before the U.S. Supreme Court and a decision could come at any time. Just last week,...

    Donald Trump returned to the campaign trail with a force Tuesday, veering away from his recent calls for party unity to attack New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez, a rising star Republican and frequent critic of his campaign, as a poor leader who hasn’t done enough to stem economic problems in her state. “You’ve got to get your governor to do a better job. She’s not doing her job,” Trump said at a convention center here, at one point joking that “maybe” he should run for New Mexico governor. The presumptive Republican presidential nominee also argued Martinez has put her state...

The subject at hand was the effect that lax immigration policy has on the illegal drug trade and continued border incursions. The long and the short of it was that when you make it ridiculously easy for people to break the law and provide them with every opportunity to face no consequences for it, they have every incentive to keep...

    (Freedom.news) Despite the fact that presidents generally have the authority to ban anyone from entering the U.S., for a host of reasons, a group of Democratic lawmakers wants to change that authority in a bid to preempt a President Donald Trump from doing what he thinks is best for U.S. national security. On the campaign trail Trump has called for a temporary ban on admitting anyone from Muslim-dominated countries with known terrorist entities at least until U.S. intelligence and Homeland Security officials find a way to properly vet these individuals. In the case of Syria, for example, the government is...

Johnson, a former two-term Republican governor of New Mexico, is expected to emerge this weekend as the Libertarian standard-bearer. "Is my door going to be knocked down because I'm going to get checked for papers?" Johnson said while praising undocumented immigrants who are leaders in their communities.

    Immigration – both legal and illegal – is one of the hottest topics in American politics today. Despite the widespread perception that Donald Trump created the current wave of anti-immigration sentiment in this country, it has actually been around for quite a while before him – Trump merely served to catalyze this sentiment's departure from the shadows and into the limelight, an opening of the Overton Window, if you will. However, Americans have become increasingly disenchanted with our broken and anti-American immigration policy for over two decades. Mark Krikorian was writing about the need to restrict immigration back in 2008....

    One of the chief misconceptions about my immigration views is that they’re born of willful intransigence. The conceit that my political philosophy was shaped years ago-true, to a large degree-and has been unyielding in the face of overwhelming evidence which logically refutes it-completely baseless-is surprisingly widespread among my critics. The truth is that I’m actually desperate to be persuaded, to be convinced that open borders is somehow a desirable-or even workable-state of affairs. Admitting that you’re wrong, especially about sincerely, long-held convictions, can be psychically devastating for some individuals. One need only read David Horowitz’s disturbing memoir Radical Son to...

    Austrians have headed to the polle to elect a new president in run-of elections. Early results by one polling institute gave far-right candidate Norbert Hofer a marginal lead at almost 51 percent. Norbert Hofer was projected to become Austria's first far-right president with 50.9 per cent of the votes, according to pollsters of the ARGE Wahlen group say. His lead over Green Party rival Alexander van der Bellen remains too narrow to call a definite winner. Former Green party chief van der Bellen was projected to gain 49.1 per cent of the ballots.

After calling for it to extend across the entire 2,000-mile southern border, he more recently said half that length could be sufficient because of natural barriers. He has pegged the cost at $4 billion to $12 billion, most recently settling on around $10b.

    One of the defining features of our society is its strange approach to citizenship. We live in the only major Western nation which operates under a policy of unrestricted jus soli, which means that individuals seeking to acquire American citizenship for their children need only birth them on United States soil in order to do so, even if they have no tangible ties to this country. The absurdity of this situation becomes evident when you realize that nearly 10% of children born in any given year have parents who are illegal aliens.

"Such conduct is certainly not worthy of any department whose name includes the word 'Justice,'" U.S. District Judge Andrew Hanen wrote in a withering order released Thursday. Justice Department attorneys misled the court about when the Department of Homeland Security would begin implementing President Obama's executive order granting "deferred action" to illegal immigrants whose children are citizens. In doing so, they tricked the 26 states who filed a lawsuit into "foregoing a request...

The court's unanimous decision on Tuesday upholds a Helena judge's 2014 ruling in a lawsuit that the law denying unemployment benefits, university enrollment and other services to people who arrived in the country illegally was unconstitutional.

But they need help, because the Muslim community is very secretive and protective of this ghastly custom. Muslim Immigration Puts Half a Million U.S. Girls at Risk of Genital Mutilation. Female genital mutilation (FGM) or clitoridectomy is an Islamic tradition, rampant...

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Could someone who worked at a Los Angeles-area mosque be linked to the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil? New allegations about the 9/11 attacks are coming from someone close to the classified investigation. In the three years following the terror attacks the 9/11 Commission found no evidence the Saudi government or high-ranking Saudi officials funded Al Qaeda. But John Lehman -- a former member of that investigative commission -- said a classified section of the investigation shows that as many as six Saudi individuals may have played a role in the attacks. One of those...

    Donald Trump has spent his entire presidential campaign warning against the dangers of Mexican immigrants stealing American jobs, raping women and hauling drugs across the border. Now, Mexico is fighting back. Mexican officials are pursuing a counteroffensive to Trump’s incendiary rhetoric, reaching out to U.S. business leaders, looking at ways to better use social media, and even encouraging qualified Mexicans to get U.S. citizenship. But they’re also trying to stay sensitive about taking more high-profile steps, such as running TV ads in an already overheated presidential race that promote Mexico as a friendly, vibrant neighbor and not a cesspool of...

    NetJets, the luxury plane unit of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc, agreed to settle U.S. charges that it discriminated against immigrant workers by requiring them to provide extra documents to prove their employment eligibility. The settlement calls for NetJets to be monitored by the U.S. Department of Justice for two years, improve training of its human resources staff, and pay a $41,480 civil penalty, the department said on Friday. NetJets denied wrongdoing in agreeing to settle, and cooperated in the probe. A spokesman had no immediate comment. Based in Columbus, Ohio, NetJets specializes in "fractional" aircraft ownership, which lets individuals...

    If a new U.S. administration blocks the flow of remittances -- the estimated $20 billion that Mexicans working in the U.S. send home each year -- then joint efforts to stop money laundering and other illicit forms of finance will be dealt a dangerous setback, a senior Mexican official warned Thursday. Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has vowed, if elected, to make Mexico pay to build a wall along the entire southwest border, even if it means impounding remittance payments.
