    The United States has imported more than 10 million legal immigrants in the last ten years, federal data circulated by the White House reveals. Since 2008, the U.S. has admitted and permanently resettled close to 10.8 million legal immigrants, a foreign population that exceeds the entire population of New York City, New York — where more than 8 million residents live. Of those roughly 10.8 million legal immigrants resettled across the U.S., the majority derives from the process known as “chain migration,” where newly naturalized citizens are allowed to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country. Nearly...

    You know in looking at you and everyone else’s life, other people could connect the dots of our actions and claim that we’ve done some questionable things by association. Do I think our President has made some questionable decisions in his life? Sure, but then so have I and in the decisions that I personally made in my past I will tell you that I now sometimes look back on them wishing I would have made some different choices, but that’s in the past and it does no good for me to ponder “what if’s”. As I do not know...
  • Senator Kevin de Leon on protecting undocumented immigrants, making college free

    California State Senator Kevin de Leon introduced himself to the DASB Senate on Wednesday, April 18. He formerly served as President pro tempore of the California State Senate, and is running to unseat incumbent U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein in the 2018 election. De Leon expressed his support for protecting undocumented immigrants and making college free. After Attorney General Jeff Sessions said he was going to deport 11 million criminal violent felons, de Leon said he decided to author Senate Bill No. 54, also known as the California “Sanctuary State” Bill. He called Sessions’ comment “fake news,” and said Sessions was...

    On Wednesday, Donald Trump embraced the "resistance". The president held a White House meeting of state and local leaders from California who are rebelling against the Golden State’s sanctuary policies, which limit cooperation between local law enforcement and federal immigration authorities. The Trump administration’s Department of Justice is suing California over these policies, and the guests in attendance represented cities and counties that are “resisting” state law by passing ordinances against sanctuary policies or supporting the federal government in the lawsuit. SNIP The 14 anti-sanctuary guests that Trump had in attendance at his meeting, like the mayor of Los Alamitos,...

    The main ruse of all Soros-funded NGOs is constant litigation. Today, most illegal immigrants enter countries in the EU legally but overstay or violate whatever visa they may have obtained. When the illegals get detained waiting for a deportation trial, lawyers employed by NGOs funded by billionaire George Soros, have unlimited funds to plead for their release. *snip* When a migrant is caught inside Hungary, he is instantly transferred to the transit zone, through one of the gates. This act is not deportation, but detention as the migrant is still in Hungary. Lawyers from these NGOs can do nothing to...

    In an interview Thursday afternoon with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Democratic California Rep. Jackie Speier explained the thinking behind an effort from Democrats and a few Republicans in the House to force floor votes on several immigration-related issues, including both DACA and the border wall. "Will you get those five more Republicans and force a vote on this sensitive issue?" CNN's Blitzer asked. "I think it really depends on the polling that they're seeing in their districts," Speier said about her Republican colleagues. "I really do think it's self-preservation at this point from any of the Republicans, and that's why you...

    There is a distinct lack of feminist celebration over these women ascending in these jobs — an absence that Republicans have criticized as hypocrisy. Shouldn’t we feminists be pleased by these shattered glass ceilings? ...Feminism isn’t about blind support for any woman who rises to power. The real political duplicity here is Republicans’ continued efforts to co-opt feminist language while actively curtailing women’s rights.

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a directive to immigration judges Thursday telling them they can no longer shunt deportation cases off onto permanent wait lists and leave illegal immigrants free to roam the U.S. Known as administrative closure, the wait list had become a favorite tactic of the Obama administration, serving to protect low-priority illegal immigrants from deportation. Rather than pursue those cases, government attorneys would propose — and judges would grant — administrative closure by shipping more than 200,000 cases to the suspension list in what analysts said became a de facto amnesty. Mr. Sessions, flexing his attorney general...

    The Huffington Post ^ | May 18, 2018 | Kurt Bardella
    It’s often said that the definition of insanity is repeating the same behavior and expecting different results. In the case of President Donald Trump and the media, there really are two sides to this coin. Whenever Trump uses provocative and at times deliberately offensive terminology ― maybe it’s “shithole” or “rapists” or more recently “animals” ― an all too familiar cycle plays out like a rerun of a bad reality-TV show. First, you must remember that Trump is the emotional equivalent of a 5-year-old. Like a child, his actions are driven by positive reinforcement. When Trump talks tough on immigration,...

    GOP seeks farm bill support amid immigration debate House Freedom Caucus members are trying to flex some muscle on immigration in exchange for support on the farm bill; A sprawling and subsidy-packed farm bill that also would have tightened food stamp rules failed in the House on Friday, in a dramatic defeat for GOP leaders who faced an uprising from conservatives over inaction on immigration. The farm bill, which was voted down 213-198, had been hanging in the balance as the conservative House Freedom Caucus threatened to withhold support without an agreement on an immigration bill vote. The GOP leadership,...

    In a major blow to Republican leaders and after a week full of drama and last-minute vote wrangling, the House failed to pass a farm bill Friday, with several Freedom Caucus members voting no in protest to a lack of immediate action on immigration. The bill failed 198-213. House GOP leaders had been touting the bill as a fulfillment of their campaign promise to overhaul welfare programs. The vote also brings the GOP’s intraparty fissures further into public view. Thirty Republicans joined all Democrats in voting it down.

    More than half a million illegal immigrants of several dozen nationalities have been apprehended on John Ladd’s sprawling cattle ranch in southeastern Arizona. Ladd has also found 14 dead bodies on his 16,500-acre farm, which has been in his family for well over a century and sits between the Mexican border and historic State Route 92. The property shares a 10 ˝-mile border with Mexico, making it a popular route for human and drug smugglers evading a meager force of Border Patrol agents in the mountainous region. “As big as that number sounds, many more got away,” said National Border...

    The liberal media made fools out of themselves Wednesday as nearly every major news outlet rushed to breathlessly report that President Trump had called all illegal immigrants to the United States “animals.” Of course, the glaring problem with their claims was that they were totally false. And despite the fact the media had to issue reams of retractions and corrections, NBC Nightly News and Spanish-language networks Univision and Telemundo kept up the charade Thursday evening. Here is Trump’s comment, complete with the full context: UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: There could be an MS-13 gang member I know about, if they don't reach...

    In a stiff pushback against claims the administration’s immigration policies are inhumane, the White House today said that the nation is choking on the 10.7 million legal immigrants and refugees allowed in over the past 10 years that are in addition to the 11.3 million illegals here. “Our expansive humanitarian-based, family-based, and lottery-based immigration system fails to consider the needs of American workers and taxpayers, who have been burdened by decades of low-skilled immigration that has suppressed wages, fueled unemployment, and strained federal resources,” said the White House. It cited reports that many come here and end up on taxpayer...

    House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi responded to President Trump calling violent MS-13 gang members "animals," at her weekly press briefing Thursday morning. Pelosi says Trump's comments as reported are a new low, and make her wonder if the president believes "we are all God's children" or not. "When the president of the United States says about undocumented immigrants, 'these are not people, these are animals,' you have to wonder, does he not believe in the spark of divinity? In the dignity and worth of every person? 'These are not people, these are animals,' from the president of the United States."...

    One of President Trump’s signature promises from his 2016 campaign was to build that “tall, beautiful wall.” Often, he would receive loud, raucous praise when he talked about it. Trump has been in office for almost a year and a half now. He has received expected pushback from Democrats. But he has also felt resistance from some Republicans. Both parties have been stingy with funding, leaving very few options. However, Sen. Bill Cassidy recently proposed a creative idea. Sen. Cassidy suggested that money seized from drug cartels should be used to fund the wall. It is a simple idea that...

The megadonor brothers are known for the regular backing of conservative causes, donating millions of dollars to back GOP candidates, but NPR reports that the LIBRE initiative is raising money to protect Democrats who have shown a willingness to work on finding a legislative fix for DACA while also backing stronger border security initiatives.

As a nation, we face a similar situation.There is no military on the planet that can defeat the United States, and no external force who could take us down.

News outlets report Michael Williams will bring the bus to what his campaign calls Georgia's "dangerous sanctuary cities" beginning Wednesday. The former state co-chair for Donald Trump's presidential campaign says in an ad that his 30-year-old bus will send undocumented immigrants "home."

According to an email notification sent to Pentagon staffers, the Department of Health and Human Services will make site visits at four military installations in Texas and Arkansas during the next two weeks to evaluate their suitability for child shelters. The bases would be used to hold minors under age 18 who arrive at the border without an adult relative or after the...
