    The legal and illegal population of foreign-born immigrants living in America will break a 100-year-old record in just six years — and will continue to smash records for the rest of the century, according to a new analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data. Already 13.5 percent of the U.S. population, immigrants will surge to 15 percent in 2023, according to Steven Camarota, the director of research for the Center for Immigration Studies. At a conference to discuss the impact of immigration on public schools, he said "the share will hit 15 percent in just six years and that will surpass...

    Two guns were found at the Belmont Cragin home of a man who was shot by a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent early Monday on the Northwest Side, authorities said. The allegation surfaced as immigration activists rallied Tuesday outside the home in the 6100 block of West Grand to decry the growing fear in Chicago’s Latino community as a result of the raid and its target, which remains unclear. A law enforcement source said Tuesday that federal agents recovered the gun that they say the 53-year-old pointed at them as they tried to serve an arrest warrant for his...

    One-hundred years ago, my grandfather immigrated to the City of Chicago. He was just 13 years old. He had no money. He spoke no English. He knew no one, except for a third-cousin he had never met. He came to Chicago to escape anti-Semitism and the pogroms of Eastern Europe. He found a city where, if you work hard and play by the rules, you can succeed — regardless of your faith or national origin. My grandfather came to a city of opportunity, not a country that breaks up families at the border. He came to a land of liberty,...

    Tani Cantil-Sakauye, California’s chief justice, is fast emerging as one of the Trump administration’s most vocal critics in the judiciary. Her main concern is the controversy surrounding President Trump’s immigration policies. Earlier this month, she criticized federal immigration authorities for using courthouses as “bait” to arrest undocumented immigrants. Days later, she assailed the president’s disparaging comments about federal judges who ruled against his travel ban. And on Monday, Cantil-Sakauye used her annual State of the Judiciary address to argue that the rule of law was being “challenged” amid the administration’s immigration crackdown. Without mentioning Trump by name, she told the...

    According to an affidavit in support of the criminal complaint, Majid Al Mashhadani, brother of Yousif Al Mashhandani and Hasan, admitted in 2005 to kidnapping and holding a U.S. citizen and others hostage for months. The three defendants are permanent residents living in the U.S. since 2008. When they applied to become naturalized citizens, none disclosed their relationship with Majid Al Mashhadani. They eventually told the FBI that they left out that relationship in the application to not jeopardize their admittance as refugees.

    On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a warning to sanctuary cities that are harboring illegal aliens.  He said that the central government would withhold funding from the cities if they failed to comply with immigration agencies in the enforcement of immigration law.  So, just how much money do sanctuary cities stand to lose by failing to comply with the law?  It's a lot, nearly $27 billion! Keep in mind that President Donald Trump issued an executive order on January 25, 2017 to deny federal funds to sanctuary cities who would not comply with immigration law.  We have a pretty...

    We’re seeing a theme in media coverage of deportations this month and much of it centers around whether or not ICE should be arresting illegal immigrants in or around courthouse grounds. The New York Daily News tossed out another grenade in the debate this week and they employ the increasingly common tactic of finding someone they view as being relatively benign to pose as the face of the illegal immigrant community which is currently “under attack” by Donald Trump’s administration. The subject of this story is Floyel Stapleton, an illegal alien from the Caribbean who was recently arrested while...

Garcetti said that such actions would be unconstitutional, adding that the city’s policies are “designed to keep our residents safe.” “Slashing funds for first-responders, for our port and airport, for counterterrorism, crime-fighting and community-building serves no one — not this city, not the federal government, not the American people,” he said. “We will...

But Democratic leaders are vowing to block any legislation that includes a single penny for the wall.

Nearly a decade later, Pachisia has learned from firsthand experience how much support immigrants need to create their own thriving startups.

In a video posted earlier this month, Nebraska Democratic Party chairwoman Jane Kleeb explained that her party decided to put the baskets together after President Donald Trump issued his “racist travel ban” in late January.

    Los Angeles has blocked airport police and firefighters from co-operating with federal immigration agents. The latest directive is the city's most aggressive bid yet to oppose President Trump's tough crackdown and protect illegal immigrants from immigration officials. Mayor Eric Garcetti declared it was 'un-American' to 'demonize' their neighbors simply because they are foreign, as the city beefed up its 'sanctuary city' status. The Los Angeles Police Department already prohibits police from asking for the legal status of a suspect even if they have probable cause.

    Portland officials estimate that more than 100 asylum seekers may be cut off from the state’s General Assistance program after July 1 and question whether the city can step in to help without violating federal law. Immigrants who have come to the United States legally to seek asylum from persecution have long received General Assistance in Portland. But it wasn’t until 2015 that assistance was solidified in Maine law. However, under the new law, asylum seekers can only receive benefits for 24 months. That means some asylum seekers will become ineligible for state assistance during the fiscal year that begins...

Kang, who was just convicted of a third DUI in Korea, may have a DUI conviction in a third country, though that part is unconfirmed. It’s also unclear whether that, or the mere fact of his conviction in Korea, has held up his visa.

    Business advocates who want to import more foreign consumers and more foreign workers are developing plans to counter President Donald Trump’s popular call for a merit-based immigration reform. The emerging strategy is to pair offers of minor concessions to Americans and Trump with demands for giveaways to business, including a bigger supply of low-wage workers and welfare-funded consumers. The immigration “pairing” strategy is being pushed by the industry-backed Business Policy Council, in cooperation with GOP Sen. Thom Tillis. The strategy collides with Trump’s emphasis on raising Americans’ wages via “merit-based immigration,” which is also backed by a new productivity-boosting immigration...

The vast majority, 18.5 per cent, were born to first generation migrant women. Just a decade ago in 2007, the proportion was 13.5 per cent, figures from Statistics Denmark, reported by Kristeligt Dagblad, reveal. The influx of migrants from Syria is one of...

    EL PASO COUNTY, Colo. - A 19-year-old has been arrested for his connection to the murders of Derek Benjamin Greer, 15, and Natalie Partida, 16. Gustavo Marquez has been booked on two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of kidnapping. Marquez is also facing one count of child abuse resulting in death because Greer was only 15 years old. The arrest is a step forward in the case that began when the teens' bodies were found on the shoulder of Old Pueblo Road about 3/4 of a mile south of Hanover Road on March 12....

    The Trump administration on Monday published the first weekly report of cities that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration authorities and the alleged crimes committed by the undocumented immigrants they had been seeking. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Declined Detainer Outcome Report was created under one of President Trump’s executive orders in an attempt to single out sanctuary jurisdictions. The report, which covers Jan. 28 to Feb. 3, lists jurisdictions that didn’t honor ICE requests to hold undocumented immigrants or notify agents when they are released from custody. In total, the jurisdictions declined 206 detainer requests issued by ICE....

    An important, if unsung, benefit of Trump’s immigration policy: It just might restore the conservatives to power up north.Granted, Canadian conservatives are nothing like American conservatives. Their conservative party is typically led by people who favor big government and universal health care, whereas our conservative party is led by, er…Anyway. Canadians are getting tired of Justin Trudeau’s open-door policy for refugees from the United States: Canadians appeared to be just as concerned about illegal immigration as American, according to the poll, which was conducted between March 8-9. Some 48 percent supported “increasing the deportation of people living in Canada...

    In yet another sign of impending Statism/Corporatism, businesses are appealing to national governments to relax immigration rules in an effort to increase their profits. Corporations don’t have children who need a school place, they don’t have elderly relatives waiting for a hospital bed; they don’t live in communities that are slowly being segregated and destroyed. They are concerned with profits, and as such care not for the adverse effects of mass immigration. Pręt a Manger is a designer sandwich shop that is a worldwide chain that made Ł676 million in 2015, and profits were up 14.5% to Ł84 million. This...

    RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A former North Carolina police chief whose mother is Italian and father is Somali said Sunday that he’s disappointed with his country of 42 years after he was detained at John F. Kennedy International Airport. Former Greenville Police Chief Hassan Aden of Alexandria, Virginia, who now works as a law enforcement consultant, said he was detained March 13 on his return trip from Paris for his mother’s 80th birthday. He supports the officers of the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol, but he believes his 90-minute detention was unreasonable, he said in a telephone interview.

    There's a reason why nobody really noticed when major media outlets dropped their education beats: They weren't doing much to begin with, other than recycling public school press releases. You can get a flavor of this by perusing the articles that the so-called mainstream media occasionally publish on education. For example, the Associated Press (AP), in a story that got a lot of pick up, reported on March 16, 2017 that "Teaching current events in the age of President Donald Trump has become fraught with peril for some educators who have interjected their personal political beliefs into the classroom." "A...
