  • Another California City Says ‘No’ to Housing Illegal Immigrants

    Breitbart's California ^ | July 23, 2014 | Robert Wilde
    The Planning Commission for Escondido, a city just outside of San Diego, voted unanimously, by a 6-0 vote, to reject sheltering Central Americans caught illegally crossing the U.S. southern border. A proposal to convert a vacant retirement home and create a 96-bed shelter for the illegal border crossers was opposed by many of the neighborhood residents, according to Reuters. Escondido now falls in lock step with Murrieta, California, about 30 miles north of Escondido, where protesters forced busses to make a U-turn and reroute back to the San Ysidro, California Border Patrol station, near the U.S.-Mexico border. Breitbart News has...
  • Slain Omahan's relative says immigration crackdown might have prevented her death

    A relative of an elderly Omaha woman who was raped and killed last year said Saturday that the brutal crime may have been prevented if the United States strictly enforced immigration laws. “What we’d like to have is the federal government to secure our borders,” said Bill Hartzell, 60, of Council Bluffs. “There’s a chance my grandmother would be still alive if our borders were secured.” Hartzell is the husband of Teresa Hartzell, a granddaughter of 93-year-old Louise Sollowin. Sollowin died three days after Sergio Martinez- Perez, a Mexico native in the U.S. illegally, broke into her South Omaha home,...

    President Barack Obama has sent a team to Texas to assess whether a U.S. National Guard deployment would help to handle an immigration crisis at the Mexican border, White House officials told Reuters on Wednesday, having so far resisted Republican calls for such a move. The team, made up of officials from the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security, departed on Tuesday and will be on the ground through Thursday.

    The party line of the anti-borders Left regarding the “unaccompanied” minors surging across the border into South Texas is that they’re “refugees” fleeing violence and persecution, ---SNIP--- that’s only the case for the first safe country the refugee enters. He shouldn’t even be allowed to apply for asylum if he passed through other countries. Asylum is for people willing to go anywhere to get out of where they are; just as a drowning man doesn’t pick and choose among life preservers he sees in the water, a genuine asylum-seeker doesn’t pick and choose among countries.

    House Republicans will call Wednesday for decisive action to end the border crisis, proposing a deployment of National Guard troops and accelerated deportation hearings for unaccompanied children inundating the U.S., said a Capitol Hill aide familiar with the plan. The proposals from a task force will aim to fix the most urgent problems quickly, “stemming the flow of [unaccompanied alien children] and securing the border right now,” the Republican aide said. “This is about solutions right now.” Several of the recommendations focus on expediting the immigration hearing process for the unaccompanied alien children. Otherwise, most of them could stay in...

Guevara traveled by foot and car, finally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border in the back of a truck. Fifteen minutes later, immigration officials discovered his illegal entry and sent him to a Texas shelter. He was there 24 days before flying from Houston to Baltimore, where he was reunited with two brothers,...

Undocumented migrants trek through the harsh brushland onto his property to avoid capture. An electric fence encloses the nearly 1,000 acres: at 220 volts, says Vickers, a local veterinarian and avid hunter, “it won’t kill them but it will make them wet their pants”. In 2006, Vickers and his wife Linda founded the Texas Border Volunteers, which now has some 300 recruits, who dress in fatigues and patrol private ranches in South Texas, using night-vision goggles and thermal imaging to...

The most revealing thing about this clip is how little his argument depends on the particular hardships being suffered by kids in Central America. They face gangs, drugs, and violence if they’re sent back, he allows, but there’s no sense that this is some unique crisis requiring a more forgiving policy than might otherwise be advisable. He’s making a straight-up argument, essentially, that if a kid makes it across the border,...

    The issue of illegal immigration continues to cover national headlines. After reading articles and talking with friends and coworkers, it’s easy to hear a lot of terms trying to personify an international issue. You have probably heard the words “immigrant,” “migrant,” “alien” or maybe even “refugee” to describe people who come into the U.S. illegally. We wanted to look at what these terms specifically mean. Merriam-Webster dictionary describes the word ‘immigrant‘ as “a person who comes to a country to take up permanent residence.” The word ‘migrant‘ means “a person who goes from one place to another especially to find...

Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) told colleagues Tuesday that she will move a bill with $2.7 billion in emergency spending for the border, substantially less than the $3.7 billion requested by Obama, according to Democratic sources. The legislation will not include language demanded by Republicans and some centrist Democrats giving the administration more flexibility to swiftly deport children from Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador and other noncontiguous...

The governor was joined by Lieutenant Governor David Dewhurst, who claimed that unaccompanied minors only make up a "tiny fraction" of the illegals currently entering the nation.

    The illegal immigrant situation at our southern border is more than just a national crisis. It’s part of the greatest conspiracy in world history—a purposeful attempt to create catastrophe, overwhelm the system, and force the American people to make a dreadfully wrong decision under duress. Obama wants our good-hearted Christian nation to see women, children, and families begging for help, begging to live the “American Dream.” He wants immigrants to be in the worst possible shape after a long journey from Central America—starving, injured, diseased—in such terrible shape our hearts break and we agree to take them all in....

    Welcome to Obamerica. If you’re an American, you’re welcome to leave. If you aren’t, then you’re welcome to stay. No need for any of those judicial formalities. We’re not sticklers for that sort of thing in Obamerica, unless you did something serious, like hoard rainwater or say something mean about minorities on Twitter. New numbers released by the House Judiciary Committee show the “vast majority” of unaccompanied minors seeking asylum are granted it before even appearing before a judge.“Information from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that shows 65 percent of unaccompanied alien minors’ asylum applications have been immediately...

    ... But there were warnings as early as 2012, both from the first ladies of Mexico, Honduras and Guatemala who spoke at a conference in Washington on unaccompanied minors, and from Texas Gov. Rick Perry. Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, D-Calif., told the Post that while Democrats were aware of the urgent problem, they feared that speaking out about the problem too much would make it too politically difficult for Congress to pass an immigration overhaul. "That was always a concern of mine: How to address the issue in a way that did not detract from the need for comprehensive immigration reform,"...

    Gov. Rick Perry to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops to RGV Texas Gov. Rick Perry plans to announce he will activate the Texas National Guard at a news conference Monday in Austin, said state Sen. Juan “Chuy” Hinojosa, D-McAllen. Hinojosa did not have details of the effort, but an internal memo from another state official’s office said the governor planned to call about 1,000 Texas National Guard troops to the Rio Grande Valley — at a cost of about $12 million per month. The memo was provided to The Monitor on the condition of anonymity because the information is...

    Much smaller, poorer countries are opening their gates for refugees from violence-torn parts of the world. Why can't we do the same?Maybe we should just send the Statue of Liberty back where it came from. That long-and-much-beloved iconic statue, standing in New York Harbor, greeting immigrants by the tens of thousands, is inscribed with Emma Lazarus’ poem: “Give me your tired, your poor, Your huddled masses, yearning to breath free, The wretched refuse of your teeming shore, Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me, I lift my lamp beside the golden door.” Our beloved Lady Liberty has been a beacon...

    U.S. Border Patrol agents on the American side of the Rio Grande were forced to take cover Friday night when high-caliber weaponry was fired at them from the Mexican side of the river, sources told FoxNews.com. The weapons were fired at the U.S. side of the riverbank in the area of the Rincon Peninsula across the Rio Grande from Reynosa, Mexico, at about 8:30 p.m., sources said. Bullets ricocheted into an area where Border Patrol agents were positioned, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, told FoxNews.com. Border Patrol sources confirmed Gohmert’s account, and said the shots may have been fired by .50-caliber...

    Here are a couple of links to talks with Zack Taylor, the Chairman National Association of Former Border Patrol Officers and former Arizona Border Patrol Officer. The second video has some graphic content, but is still very much worth seeing. He brings up a very good point that the border agents are being pulled off the border to deal with these "kids." It isn't necessarily these people that are the problem, but the ones who now have unrestricted access coming through other areas and are not being caught.

  • What True Immigration Reform Looks Like: End Family Chain Migration

    Right Side News ^ | April 14, 2014 | Adrienne Royer
    What is “chain migration”? Chain migration allows one immigrant to sponsor several relatives for admission. Five years after being admitted as a legal permanent resident, that individual only needs to seek naturalization and demonstrate an income level 25% higher than the poverty level to begin sponsoring other relatives who then sponsor other relatives and perpetuate this cycle. In 1965, the Immigration and Naturalization Act was amended to expand the definition of “immediate relatives” to emphasize the reunification of extended family members. Previously, U.S. laws limited this category to the spouses and children under 18 of U.S. citizens and legal immigrants....

    After swearing an oath to protect the life of Barack Obama and then resigning, one former Secret Service agent is calling the president out for an alarming overreach of power he claims is risking the lives of Americans. “The president has abdicated his duty to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution, especially where illegal immigration is concerned,” Dan Bongino told WND in an interview. A 12-year veteran of the Secret Service and candidate for Congress in Maryland’s Sixth District, he called the current state of the U.S. border “the most unsecure situation you could possibly imagine.” “We’re not escorting these...

    “What better way to give a boost to the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Act and the remaking of American neighborhoods than to start injecting illegal immigrant populations into targeted cities and towns in the suburbs all across the country?“ That was national radio talk show superhost Rush Limbaugh commenting on a Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulation, “Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing.” “The concept, as it is properly understood, is to change the enforcement paradigm in order to allow the Department of Housing and Urban Development to essentially decide what every neighborhood in America should look like,” Limbaugh explained....

    Governor Mary Fallin (R-OK) told Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures that the feds sent 1,200 illegal immigrant children to Oklahoma to hold for 120 days. 90 of those illegal children were from India. “Because they are children, we want them to be fed, and have appropriate medical care, certainly be safe within the facilities, and they’re segregated. But, one of the things I’ve heard since they’ve been there and it was reported while I was there actually, that there were not only El Salvadoran children, and Honduras, and Guatemala, but there were 90 children reported to be from India...

    San Francisco politicians love to opine on major national and international issues - even if their stance will have no bearing on anything other than bolstering their own egos. Impeach George W. Bush! End the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan! But this time, City Hall officials have seized on a significant issue - the swell of undocumented children from Central America crossing the U.S. border - that they just might be able to influence in a real way. The Board of Supervisors has voted unanimously to fund relief efforts for children arriving in the city, according to immigration advocates, at...
