    Texas Border Patrol agents have arrested a group of 39 migrants attempting to enter the United States illegally, with many of illegal immigrants having criminal histories that include convictions for homicide, child rape, and other sexual crimes against children. Three of those arrested at the Rio Grande Valley Sector are also known members of violent gangs. The news follows an announcement from US Homeland Security that the migrant caravan that’s massed on the other side of a San Diego border crossing, is harboring over 500 criminals.

    New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy announced Monday that the Garden State would set aside more than $2 million to provide legal aid for low-income immigrants facing deportation. The first-year Democrat announced the allocation in the current fiscal year's budget hours before a federal judge barred the Trump administration from enforcing a recently enacted rule denying asylum to anyone who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally. "Families who came to New Jersey for a better life do not deserve to be torn apart by the federal government's cruel and discriminatory policies," Murphy said in a statement. The budget agreement calls for $925,000 to...

    Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7VYRKtUrnuw Tensions have risen in Tijuana as members of the Central American migrant caravan continue to arrive at the Mexican border city, while US troops continue to tighten security along the frontier. On Sunday, anti-caravan protesters chanted: “Out Hondurans, we don’t want you here”, “Tijuana first” and “Long live Mexico”, and waved Mexican flags and signs reading “no to the invasion” and “no more migrants”. The group, which at its height numbered about 300, gathered in front of a statue of the Aztec warrior Cuauhtémoc before making their way to a sports complex serving as a temporary shelter to...

    SALINAS, Calif. — As a boy, Abel Montoya remembers his father arriving home from the lettuce fields each evening, the picture of exhaustion, mud caked knee-high on his trousers. “Dad wanted me to stay away from manual labor. He was keen for me to stick to the books,” Mr. Montoya said. So he did, and went to college. Yet Mr. Montoya, a 28-year-old immigrant’s son, recently took a job at a lettuce-packing facility, where it is wet, loud, freezing — and much of the work is physically taxing, even mind-numbing. Now, though, he can delegate some of the worst work...

    Department of Homeland Security officials are gathering information on the migrant caravan moving through Mexico to the U.S. border via paid undercover informants and the monitoring of group text messages, NBC News reports. The migrants use WhatsApp message groups to coordinate their journey, according to the report. DHS officials have joined these groups to monitor the caravan’s size and activity, combining the information with that of paid informants and DHS officials working with the Mexican government to prepare for the migrants’ arrival. The caravan consists of roughly 4,000 migrants, mostly from crime-ridden Honduras, seeking a new life in the U.S....

    <p>A federal judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration from denying asylum to migrants who illegally cross into the United States, saying the policy likely violated federal law on asylum eligibility.</p> <p>The judge pointedly denied the claim that the president, by fiat, could give the manner of entry added legal weight as a determinant of asylum. He reasoned that the “interpretive guide” of United Nations compacts on asylum lent extra force to congressional requirements. The intent of Congress, Tigar wrote, was “unambiguous.”</p>

    The camp set up for the Central American migrant caravan in Tijuana was on “lockdown” on Sunday as Mexican residents of the city attempted to storm the area in protest. The unwelcome arrival of the caravan had put tremendous pressure on Tijuana’s resources resulting in many locals taking to the streets in opposition. It was a serious and dangerous development that went completely unreported during ABC’s World News Tonight and NBC Nightly News Monday evening. The CBS Evening News kept up its record of being the only broadcast network evening program treating the caravan seriously. In a news brief, anchor Jeff...

    The migrant caravan is like something out of a future, apocalyptic dystopia—or, to go back in time, perhaps an image from Exodus—where thousands of men, women, and children trudge a thousand miles under the hot tropical sun across hot tarmac and dirt roads, hoping to land on America’s doorstep, in search of opportunities not to be found in the failed, crumpled, venal, socialist states from which they hail.What is President Trump to do? Welcome them all in, as one interpretation of Pope Francis’s recent exhortations seems to imply? Turn them back? If so, how? Persuasion? Water cannons? Trump has...

    TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — Hundreds of Tijuana residents congregated around a monument in an affluent section of the city south of California on Sunday to protest the thousands of Central American migrants who have arrived via caravan in hopes of a new life in the U.S. Tensions have built as nearly 3,000 migrants from the caravan poured into Tijuana in recent days after more than a month on the road, and with many more months ahead of them while they seek asylum. The federal government estimates the number of migrants could soon swell to 10,000. U.S. border inspectors are processing...

    Don Cresitello is not the kind of guy to say "I hate to say I told you so."  In fact he takes great pleasure in doing so. And the Democratic former mayor of Morristown told you long ago that we need better coordination between local and federal authorities when it comes to dealing with potentially violent undocumented immigrants.That was proven against last week when an undocumented Mexican immigrant murdered three people in Missouri after being released from the Middlesex County jail in December to await trial on charges of domestic violence.That incident brought memories of a 2007 incident in which...

    When do too many become too much? Why must the world’s miseries become America’s responsibilities? At what point, does the immigrant line end? In the past month, emotional writers around the United States tell us that we must accept and care for the 14,000-strong immigrant caravan chugging toward our southern border. More open-borders activists plan to fight the military in order to allow the migrants into the United States. The Catholic Church encourages its flock to violate our borders at every level. The Pope, standing behind the walls of the Vatican, scolds us for building a wall on the Mexican...

    A heartless dad purposely drowned his two sons, who both had severe autism, by driving his car off a California pier — so he could cash in on a $6 million insurance policy, prosecutors said. Ali Elmezayen, 44, allegedly hatched the sick scheme two years before stomping on the gas of his Honda and sending it crashing into the Port of Los Angeles on April 9, 2015. “Witnesses heard the tires of the car screech loudly and saw the car accelerate before it flew off the edge of the wharf, crashed into the water and immediately sunk,” FBI agent Matthew...

    YUMA, Ariz. – U.S. Border Patrol agents in Yuma Sector apprehended 654 illegal aliens most being family units or unaccompanied juveniles from Guatemala, who surrendered themselves to agents on Monday and Tuesday. The groups were primarily Guatemalan nationals, not believed to be associated with the large caravan being monitored traveling through Mexico at this time. The groups illegally entered on both sides of the San Luis Port of Entry where there is outdated border wall infrastructure. Larger numbers have started to illegally cross shallow portions of the Colorado River near Yuma. At approximately 8:30 p.m. Monday night, a group of...

    Broken Immigration Laws We hear this expression often and it is usually about people agreeing that somebody should correct the broken immigration laws but nobody does. The reason no one does is that the immigration laws are not broken; they are just not strictly enforced. Any act prohibited by legislation and not challenged doesn’t make the act legal. Who supports the narrative that a law not followed or enforced is broken? Some feel the immigration law is in need of “reform” to make what is currently illegal legal. President Trumps tends to oppose this position and I tend to agree...

    SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras—On this city’s violent outskirts, where families live in tin-roofed shacks on streets menaced by gangs, the word is out on how best to escape to the U.S. Bring the children. The number of Central American families with children arriving at the U.S. border seeking asylum has surged in recent years—and they keep coming, as more migrant caravans make their way through Mexico. Having children in tow can be a successful tactic because of American immigration rules. Families from crime-ridden Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador are able to gain entry by demonstrating a credible fear of returning...

    Newly released dashcam video shows the moments a police officer in Arkansas stared down the barrel of a gun during an intense shootout with an illegal immigrant suspect over the weekend. The Washington County Sheriff's Office said in a news release the incident happened Sunday, after County Corporal Brett Thompson tried to initiate a traffic stop around 12:43 p.m. in Tontitown, located just outside Fayetteville. The driver, 29-year-old Luis Cobos-Cenobio, didn't stop and the officer reportedly initiated a brief chase. After eventually pulling over, Cobos-Cenobio got out of his vehicle and began shooting at Thompson, officials said. The video released Tuesday shows...
