He added that ISIS prisoners held by Kurdish forces would be kept in jail or returned to home countries willing to take them....

    In July, I was perhaps among the first to report that an unusually large influx of up to 35,000 African, Middle Eastern and South Asian “intercontinental” migrants, was coursing from South America through Panama’s Darien Gap toward the broken-open U.S. border to likewise get asylum claims going and gain quick permanent entry into the interior, sky high numbers that had not been seen in many years.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — A top Trump administration immigration official defended the effort to effectively end asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border for nearly all migrants, saying Friday it was necessary to drive down a massive backlog of immigration cases.... Juan Carlos Perla, 36, said Friday that many asylum seekers from his native El Salvador have returned, including cousins who have stayed with him in a rented two-room house with donated furniture on the distant outskirts of Tijuana. “People know that they aren’t going to be allowed in. They’re desperate. Many don’t like it here. Life here isn’t easy,” he said.... It...

    TIJUANA, Mexico (AP) — A new level of despair spread among tens of thousands of migrants waiting on the Mexican border to seek refuge in the U.S. as the Trump administration began enforcing radical new restrictions Thursday on who qualifies for asylum.“The United States is the only option,” Dunea Romero, a 31-year-old Honduran, lamented with tears in her eyes at a shelter in Tijuana. She said she packed a bag and fled her homeland with her two boys, ages 7 and 11, after learning that her abusive ex-husband, a powerful gang leader, was going to have her killed.The new U.S....

    To fully appreciate the manufacturing of the 2018–2019 invasions of our southern border, you must first understand this: Pueblo Sin Fronteras is just one cog in the well-oiled, illegal-alien caravan-generating machine. Let’s start with what open-borders advocates themselves call their “Underground Railroad” of migrant safe houses that extend across Central America, through Mexico, and up and into the U.S… This sprawling network of aid stations has been in place for years, bolstered by global interests, left-wing activists, and religious institutions that advocate for illegal aliens… In 2012, for example, the United Nations’ International Organization for Migration (IOM) in Mexico signed...

    A map posted by breaks down the economic toll of illegal immigrants state by state, and their findings are extremely troubling. Using information gathered from the Federation for American Immigration Reform, How Much’s map shows how much money illegal immigrants cost American taxpayers on a state-by-state basis. California is most devastated by the heavy toll, with a whopping $23 billion in that state alone. States closer to the Mexican border are most affected, but several states throughout the country still pay billions to support illegal immigrants through education, welfare, law enforcement, and medical care. Here’s the breakdown, provided by...

    Mexico: Most-wanted U.S.-based jihadi apprehended at migrant detention center AUG 26, 2019 5:00 PM BY ROBERT SPENCER This story shows yet again what the Left wants you to forget, that immigration is a national security issue. This is true despite the fact that Mohammed Azharuddin Chhipa was not actually trying to get into the United States; he was an American citizen trying to evade detection by U.S. counterterror agents as he went abroad to join the jihad. But if the pipeline goes one way, it goes the other way as well. “A Most-Wanted American Jihadist Caught in Mexico Was On...

    Jesuit Chief: No Country Has the Right to Turn Away Migrants ROME — The superior general of the Jesuits declared this week that no country has the right to turn away migrants, claiming the land belongs to everyone. “The challenge for a country that receives migrants is not only reception, but integration, which means receiving the contribution that immigrants bring,” said Jesuit Father Arturo Sosa Abascal in an interview with“They come to make a contribution, which is greater than what they receive from the host country,” he claimed, seemingly without evidence.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents and their medical contractors do not administer influenza vaccines to migrants being held at detention centers along the U.S.-Mexico border, reports said Tuesday. “In general, due to the short-term nature of CBP holding and the complexities of operating vaccination programs, neither CBP nor its medical contractors administer vaccinations to those in our custody,” the agency told The Hill in a statement. Children receive the flu vaccine once they are transferred from CBP to Health and Human Services (HHS) custody, the CBP spokesperson said. Earlier this month, doctors from Harvard, Johns Hopkins and other medical...
  • DHS: We're Ending Catch and Release of Family Units Crossing the Border

    08/21/2019 1:06:05 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 45 replies ^ | August 21, 2019 | Katie Pavlich
    The Trump administration implemented new policies on Wednesday in an effort to end the "catch-and-release" of family units entering the country illegally or applying for asylum. In the past, the Department of Homeland Security has only been able to detain and process families together for 20-days. After that, they've been released into the United States and become unlikely to show up for immigration court dates months or years later. That practice is changing and DHS will now hold family units together, without separating children from parents, until their immigration hearing and full processing. "Large numbers of alien families are entering illegally across...
