    SAN FRANCISCO -- The suspect in last week's slayings of five people in San Francisco was ordered deported in 2006 after he served a prison term for robbery and assault, but because his native Vietnam would not issue travel documents for him, immigration officials had to let him go free, officials said Monday. Binh Thai Luc, 35, of San Francisco was released under the terms of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that said undocumented immigrants must be released after six months if their country of origin won't take them back, according to officials with the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement...

    On Saturday (2/19/11), the Los Angeles Times published an article, "Ex-high school principal gets 8 years for molesting four girls." The case involved Jonas Vital Silverio, who had pleaded no contest to 10 counts of lewd acts on a child 14 or 15 years old. At first blush, the story seems to be just another stomach-turning account of child abuse in our nation's public schools. But buried in the middle of the article was a troubling detail: [Los Angeles County] Prosecutor Stephanie Chavez said Silverio had a history of sexual misconduct. In 1995, Silverio was placed on probation for a...

    The federal government is suing a local doctor to recover more than $800,000 it says he was paid after fraudulently billing Medicare and Medicaid. In a civil complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Greenbelt, the Department of Health and Human Services says it wants to recover $814,315 that Dr. Abdul Fadul allegedly collected from the two programs through fraud. The complaint, which also names one of his clinics, the Cardio Vascular Center in La Plata, as a defendant, says Fadul billed Medicare and Medicaid for procedures that weren't performed thousands of times between 2004 and 2005.

    Salvador Portillo-Saravia, a member of the MS-13 street gang, was charged with raping an 8-year-old girl at her Fairfax County home last month. But he never should have been in Fairfax in the first place. Federal officials deported Portillo-Saravia, of Sterling, to El Salvador in 2003, and he sneaked back in illegally. Now, officials are wondering why a much-touted federal program didn't catch him before the rape. Four weeks before the crime, Portillo-Saravia was in the Loudoun County jail for public intoxication. That's when the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) program, called Secure Communities, should have identified him as an...

    Fort Hancock, Texas -- Locals here say they've seen a recent increase in illegal immigrants simply walking across the border and disappearing into the town, which lies just four miles from El Porvenir, Mexico, and 50 miles southeast of Ciudad Juarez, where 2,300 people were killed last year alone. "They just walk across the border, right up my street," said Irby, 69, who lives close to Fort Hancock High School. "There has been an influx of people coming over from Mexico." Other residents , meanwhile, say they refuse to live in fear. But nearly all residents interviewed said they're paying...

    By Doug Mitchell, OperationRedState.com A week ago Sunday there were actually two things going on. First, the demise of our healthcare system that 57% of Americans were against. Second, allegedly tens of thousands of immigrants rallied for amnesty in Washington. I've heard many people lately asking how the Democrats can have the audacity to act against the American people and still expect to stay in office. Well. What would an additional 8 million and counting voters do? Obama has been making more and more mentions of his campaign promise to tackle immigration reform saying, "I have always pledged to be...

    For years, many Americans have dismissed the battle between Mexico's government and drug cartels. * * * But this problem, funded largely by U.S. drug users, has rapidly transformed into a battle against a terrorist insurgency, and victory is every bit as important to Mexico's security as is America's battle against al-Qaeda. Defeat for Mexico means nothing less than a descent into chaos. This might sound alarmist, but the tactics being employed by Mexico's drug gangs, not to mention their spread into U.S. border cities, is truly cause for alarm. * * * Drug gangs are challenging the government for...

    WASHINGTON — More than 300 suspects have been arrested in a series of drug raids across the country that law enforcement officials say is the largest single strike at a Mexican drug cartel operating in the United States.

In the latest legal assault on La Familia, a New York grand jury has indicted an alleged cartel leader, Servando Gomez-Martinez. He is linked to one of the...
