  • Fake News from The Washington Post About Immigrants and Gangs

    Editor's Note: The following post has been slightly adapted from its original publication at Liberty Unyielding. Aliens are foreigners, not citizens, as one can see from dictionary definitions. So they do not include the typical immigrant, who is a naturalized citizen. It was thus inaccurate for The Washington Post’s Jenna Portnoy to write a story last Thursday claiming that the House of Representatives had passed a bill allowing “immigrants” to be deported if they are criminal gang members, when in fact the bill was aimed at “aliens.” (“Bill lets officials deport immigrants for gang ties,” Sept. 15, pp. B1 &...

    Mississippi second-grade teacher fired for saying black people should “move back to Africa” According to this article from the New York Post, a Mississippi second-grade teacher was recently fired for posting the following on her Facebook page:“If blacks in this country are so offended, no one is forcing them to stay here. Why don’t they pack up and move back to Africa where they will have to work for a living. I am sure our government will pay for it! We pay for everything else.”Wow. Her statement is highly rude and offensive, and is totally inappropriate for someone who teaches children....

    The DACA issue compels us to confront our times either-or: patriotism or multiculturalism? We cant have it both ways; which shall it be? Though it would have been unthinkable at any other period in history, most of the intellectual class chooses multiculturalism. Their preference, that is to say, is not for the interests of their own country, but for those of non-Americans. This is bizarre, for while patriotism, like so much else in human affairs, is a mixed thingoften crossing over into a crass and dangerous nationalism, for exampleit does refer to actual practices and customs, embodied values whereby people...

    The Trump administration is getting ready to add countries to its list of six nations whose citizens are banned from traveling to the U.S. due to national security concerns, according to a report Friday morning. The Department of Homeland Security proposal would go into effect Sunday, the expiration of the 90-day travel ban against select countries in the Middle East and North Africa. DHS recently flagged 17 unspecified nations that have failed to meet U.S. standards for screening travelers and ignored other government mandates. About half of those countries made changes to be more in line with U.S. security standards,...

  • Trumps Travel Ban Decision Could Set Off New Wave of Turmoil

    Drudge Report ^ | 9/22/17 | Toluse Olorunnipa and Greg Stohr No excerpt. Given the lawsuits and the Judicial Tyranny that has interfered in Trumps Visa requirements and immigration policy or known as the Travel Ban, I haven't seen one pundit or opinionated news source point out that actions such as the travel ban, help not only in keeping terrorists out, but also in putting pressure on the nations exporting terrorism and their cultural behavior and perhaps changing forcing that nation to take notice and corrective action.
  • Convicted Terrorist Rasmea Odeh Deported (Why Are These People Allowed Here?

    Convicted terrorist-turned-Women's March organizer Rasmea Odeh has been deported from the United States to Jordan after it was revealed that she lied on her application for a U.S. visa and for U.S. citizenship. Odeh did not state on her application that she was convicted in 1970 for two bombings in Jerusalem that resulted in the deaths of two people, and hence was tried for immigration fraud. After several appeals and a vacated sentence, on March 23, 2017 Odeh was sentenced to be deported and to be stripped of her U.S. citizenship. Her citizenship was formally revoked on August 17. Odeh was...

    During the campaign, Donald J. Trump made lots of promises -- he'd be the greatest jobs president God ever created, he'd cut taxes, he'd balance the budget, he'd give all Americans fantastic health care, he'd renegotiate NAFTA, he'd scotch the Iran deal and so on. But there was one central promise without which he wouldn't have been elected: He said he'd build a wall.

    DACA is a Trojan horse. Give amnesty to anyone and you'll end up giving it to everyone President Trumps speech before the UN was interesting in many ways. He put the multinational globalists on official notice that he has their number and as far as hes concerned their number is up. He let the UN bureaucrats know that their red tape parades have got to be reined in. He called socialism what it is, a failure. He held up capitalism as the means for raising people out of poverty and ignorance. He made the case for sovereignty both national, personal,...

    Last summer the Annenberg Public Policy Center (APCC) at Penn elected to test Americans Constitutional awareness but may have contributed to historical misconceptions in the process. "More than half of Americans (53 percent) incorrectly think it is accurate to say that immigrants who are here illegally do not have any rights under the U.S. Constitution," the Annenberg Center claims. Yet and still, when they elaborate on that finding, they have to qualify it by using Supreme Court rulings because the original Constitution and Bill of Rights are so clearly geared towards American citizens: "The APPC survey, conducted Aug. 9-13 among...

    Watching this, I keep thinking of that Hillary clip from 2014 that made the rounds a few weeks ago in which she said Just because your child gets across the border, that doesnt mean the child gets to stay. Conservatives pointed to that as proof that even the reigning Democratic nominee opposes a DREAM amnesty, but huffy lefties complained that Clinton was being taken out of context. She was referring to children who had *recently* crossed the border, they said, not to children who were brought here years ago and had built a life in America. Obviously Democrats dont support...

    President Trump is using targeted Facebook ads to assure supporters he will build a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico, reports BuzzFeed News. "There's been a lot of noise and a lot of rumors," reads the ad from Trump's personal Facebook page. "WE WILL BUILD A WALL (NOT A FENCE) ALONG THE SOUTHERN BORDER OF THE UNITED STATES," it adds, calling the issue "non-negotiable." The ad has been targeted to specific Facebook users in recent days. Vice President Pences Facebook page is running a similar ad, according to BuzzFeed. Trumps declaration comes after he tweeted last week that the...

    Undocumented immigrants are shunning California in favor of Texas, with the Lone Star States undocumented population growing nearly five times as fast as Californias, new federal data show. About 2.9 million undocumented immigrants lived in California during 2014, according to new estimates from the Department of Homeland Security. The undocumented population in California grew steadily from 2000 to 2008, dropped sharply during the 2007 recession, rose again and remained essentially flat from 2011 to 2014. Overall, Californias unauthorized immigrant population grew by 16 percent from 2000 through 2014. The undocumented population in Texas, by comparison, grew by 75 percent from...

    Places of worship and private charities in Texas and Florida are playing a pivotal role in the recovery effort from hurricanes Harvey and Irma because so many storm victims are immigrants in the country illegally and therefore ineligible for federal disaster aid. FEMA rules allow people in the country illegally to apply for disaster aid on behalf of children under 18 years old with legal status, but many worry about the government sharing information with immigration authorities. Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston is hosting workshops for immigrants to explain FEMA eligibility and answer other questions.

    During US president Donald Trumps first month in office, the Department of Homeland Security saw a 40% drop in apprehensions and the prevention of inadmissible persons at crossings between the border of Mexico and the US; after the Trump administration threatened to separate children from their parents at the border, the number of parents and children apprehended at crossings dropped by 93%. Up to this point, many of the people who had been trying to illegally enter the US at the southern border in recent years were not Mexicans, but refugees from other Latin American countries passing through Mexico....

    Rasmea Odeh was deported Tuesday. The 70-year-old Palestinian immigrant, whose U.S. citizenship was revoked by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for not disclosing having served time as a prisoner in Israel, didnt cry until the end, only after ICE refused her huge crowd of supporters entry into the airport. Before that, Odeh was staunchly defiant, the etched lines of her set countenance only occasionally twitching during a three-hour OHare Airport send-off for the political activist who became symbolic of a cause Palestine liberation her case gaining notoriety worldwide. Up until this very moment, I didnt believe they will throw...

    On Friday, September 15, the Associated Press reported on a fascinating new wrinkle in the centuries-old face of unconstitutional federal activity, and the details might surprise many who are concerned about the sticky issue of immigration. According to the report, Federal District Judge Harry Leinenweber just ruled that Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the Justice Department cannot withhold federal public safety grants to so-called Sanctuary Cities if the politicians in those cities did not conform to federal immigration policies. This, in effect, temporarily removes a powerful tool in the Trump Administrations work shed as the President attempts to wrangle with...

    The Paris Commune, the Bavarian Soviet Republic and the California legislative supermajority of Dems are shining examples of what happens when insane leftists take over a formerly prosperous place. The issue of resistance is beyond the symbolism, Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon declared. A lot of other municipalities, as well as other states, are looking towards California to be the leader of this resistance. The resistance is to President Trump, democracy and sanity. California has the best student government in the world. And like every student government, its eager to serve every leftist cause. Forget good government....

    Three Democratic members of Congress have been arrested on disorderly conduct charges at a protest outside Trump Tower. U.S. Reps. Raul Grijalva, of Arizona; Luis Gutierrez, of Illinois; and Adriano Espaillat, of New York, were among a small group of demonstrators who sat down in the street on New Yorks Fifth Avenue on Tuesday and refused to move. The lawmakers were handcuffed and led away. Police say they were issued desk appearance tickets and released. The protesters were demanding that Congress pass legislation protecting thousands of young immigrants from deportation.....
