    A Wimberley man being held by Immigration and Customs Enforcement after a traffic stop last month has been released. Kyle Police arrested Victor Alejandro Avendano-Ramirez on January 30 for not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign. He had two warrants for his arrest for charges of driving without a license and violating promise to appear in court, both Class C misdemeanors. While he was being booked, police say Avendano told them he was not a US citizen and was born in Mexico. The sheriff's office then informed ICE of his status, and their agents took custody of...

    Viktor Orbán has called for "patriotic" EU countries to assist Hungary's fight against globalism, reported Brietbart's Virginia Hale. “Dark clouds are gathering over Europe because of immigration,” Hungary's Prime Minister warned in Budapest on Sunday, at the nation’s annual State of the Union Address. “Nations will cease to exist, the West will fall, while Europe won’t even realize it's been invaded,” he said, declaring that “Christianity is Europe’s last hope” against rising Islamization taking place on the continent. “Absurd as it may sound, the danger we face comes from the West, from politicians in Brussels, Berlin and Paris,” he said,...

    A 26-year-old man who is in the country without documentation is accused of lewd and lascivious battery of a teenager, according to the Fellsmere Police Department. Police arrested Salvador Alberto-Ramos of 26 N. Elm Street on Tuesday. They said they began their investigation after parents of the alleged victim reported a relationship between the pair on February 14. Police said Alberto-Ramos had two sexual encounters with the alleged victim. He also told the alleged victim to "keep it a secret" because of the difference in their ages, police said. Police said there is the possibility that the suspect may have...

    The federal government began work Wednesday on replacing border wall in California, the first wall contract awarded in the Trump administration outside of eight prototypes that were built last year in San Diego. Customs and Border Protection is replacing a little more than 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) in downtown Calexico, a sliver of the president's plan for a "big, beautiful wall" with Mexico. A barrier built in the 1990s from recycled metal scraps and landing mat will be torn down for bollard-style barriers that are 30 feet (9.1 meters) high, significantly taller than existing walls.

    The vicious MS-13 gang, stifled under former President George W. Bush, exploded during the Obama era fueled by 300,000 illegals, including those given amnesty under the DACA program, and has now been linked to crimes in 22 states, according to a new report. Since 2012, 207 murders have been tied to the gang called Mara Salvatrucha, and there are over 500 cases nationwide of MS-13 members being charged in major crimes, according to the report from the Center for Immigration Studies.

    They arent calling him Lyin Ted anymore. Sen. Ted Cruzs stock is rising among members of President Trumps base who feel double-crossed after the president offered amnesty to illegals in the immigration debate. Some who opposed Mr. Cruz in his 2016 run for the White House are even clamoring for the Texas Republican to mount a primary challenge to Mr. Trump in 2020. The newfound esteem for Mr. Cruz, whom Mr. Trump dubbed Lyin Ted when they battled for the 2016 Republican nomination, is coming from people who were die-hard supporters of the president. Ted Cruz has kept his word...

    To see how protracted and insane the immigration debate has become among amnesty proponents, look no further than the drama which engulfed LULAC over the last two weeks. LULAC, the League of United Latin American Citizens, is one of the oldest Hispanic advocacy groups in the country. The group’s president, Roger Rocha, issued an open letter in support of President Trump’s Four Pillar immigration proposal, which would provide a pathway to citizenship for 1.8 million DACA and DACA-eligible illegal aliens in the country. Rocha’s letter reluctantly acquiesced to the President’s demands for stricter enforcement of our borders, including the wall,...

    The Presidents Chief of Staff, Gen. John Kelly, recently raised some eyebrows when he postulated that many illegal aliens who could have applied to participate in the Obama administrations illegal DACA program may have simply been too lazy to apply for temporary lawful status when the program was in effect. Although General Kelly had a highly successful and laudable record of service to our nation in the United States Marine Corps, he never enforced nor administered our nations immigration laws. His lack of experience and subsequent lack of understanding about the challenges that confront those who enforce and...

    In the aftermath of the passage of legislation aimed at limiting Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids in California, the state has released rules employers must follow or risk fines of up to $10,000 per offense. The Immigrant Worker Protection Act prohibits employers from voluntarily granting ICE agents access to private areas of worksites or to employee records. If ICE agents have a judicial warrant or subpoena for the records, however, the state law allows employers to grant them access, according to guidelines released by California Attorney General Xavier Becerra. Under the new state law, employers must also notify employees...

    Dreamers have moved to the center of the debate about illegal immigration. Many say they are here illegally through no fault of their own, brought as children by their parents. Many Dreamers have gone on to college and public service, making them ideal poster children in the debate. But the focus on Dreamers has caused tension between those in the community who can qualify for DACA and those who cannot. Alessandro Negrete, 35, was getting ready for a night out in downtown Los Angeles recently when one of his friends worried aloud about Trump taking away the protection he got...

Of those arrested, 195 have criminal convictions, were issued final orders of removal but did not leave the country, or re-entered illegally after being removed, ICE officials said.

    There are federal subsidies for lots of things that society has decided would be good for the country, such as school lunches for low-income kids and better highways for all who use cars, trucks, and buses. On the other hand, there has always been widespread discrimination in, among things, the hiring process. There are oodles of federal and state programs that make that kind of discrimination illegal, appropriately so....[snip] A program that invests more than $1 billion a year to promote that kind of discrimination?

    Feminism and liberal hatred of themselves and America are guilty of murdering our political, social, cultural, and religious institutions. They are acting with deliberate malice of forethought, motive, means, and opportunity. Like larva burrowing up from the rotting carcass of their International Communist dream, they have co-opted the Soviets plan to destroy America from within. In this, they have succeeded beyond Lenin's wildest dreams to divide America by race, sex, class, ethnic background, and religion under the banner of diversity. Their weapons have been Multiculturalism and Politically correct abridgment of our speech, and the Democrat Party. Their cry has been...

    A female human trafficking victim too young to legally drive a car or buy a lottery ticket was savagely beaten with a bat by a pack of incensed MS-13 members, Montgomery County Police say. Late last month, Ivan Alexis Pena-Rodriguez, 20, Yervin Josue Romero-Rivera, 21, and Miguel Angel Ayala-Rivera, 24, were all formally charged with first-degree assault, plus other assorted criminal counts.

    Members of the Senate failed to advance any immigration laws on Feb. 15, leaving the fate of various U.S. immigrants in an ongoing state of limbo. News of the vote came in as hundreds of attendees sat in Irvine Auditorium, listening to former Vice President Joe Biden and former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush discuss immigration policy with Penn President Amy Gutmann. The two-hour discussion was punctuated by brief personal anecdotes by the panelists. In a particularly memorable moment, Bush described his relationship to his wife, Columba Bush, a Mexican-American philanthropist. "My wife is from Mexico, she's a proud Mexican-American....

    Federal deportation officers staged one of the biggest enforcement actions in years against businesses in Los Angeles this week, arresting 212 people and serving audit notices to 122 businesses who will have to prove they arent hiring illegal immigrants. Nearly all of those arrested were convicted criminals, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE said it targeted Los Angeles because its a sanctuary city, meaning it refuses to fully cooperate with federal authorities on deportations from within its jails. That means agents and officers have to go out into the community, said Thomas D. Homan, the agencys deputy director.

    Does the President have authority over immigration? That question cannot be answered by quoting a particular article, section, and clause. The Constitution must be applied. First, we must consider whether immigration involves a power delegated to the federal government. The answer to that question is yes and no. The authority to create a uniform Rule of Naturalization is vested in the federal government. However, not everything our federal government currently considers as immigration falls under this delegation. The power over foreign immigration is delegated through Article 1 section 8 clause 4; To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization. Because it...
