    RUSH: Okay. So we just had a hearing. This is the Senate Judiciary Committee and it’s a hearing on immigration, DACA, so forth and so on. The Homeland Security secretary testifies, and what did the Democrats do? They asked about the language the president used. Is this how they want to use our time? Is this what they really think is important? Grilling the Homeland Security Chief on whether or not the president uttered that word, did anybody else utter any profanity? This hearing has been going on since 12 noon, maybe a little bit before that. Every Democrat, Dicky...

    Accused cop killer Luis Bracamontes repeatedly interrupted the opening day of his murder trial Tuesday with a barrage of insults and profanity, prompting Sacramento Superior Court Judge Steve White to remove the jury briefly. “I wish I had killed more of the mother-------,” Bracamontes boasted to the jury as prosecutor Rod Norgaard described the 2014 crime spree that killed two area deputies. “I will break out soon and I will kill more, kill whoever gets in front of me...There’s no need for a f------ trial,” he added. That was the latest of several outbursts from the defendant Tuesday, who has...

    SEATTLE - A longtime activist for illegal immigrants in the Northwest says she herself is now facing deportation. Maru Mora-Villalpando, a native of Mexico City who has been in the U.S. for more than 25 years, said Tuesday that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has given her a notice to appear before an immigration judge. She says she believes ICE is targeting her because of her activism. She leads an organization called Northwest Detention Center Resistance, which was created in 2014 when detainees at the privately run immigration detention facility in Tacoma began a series of hunger strikes to protest...
  • Editorial: UC Berkeley fails to support undocumented student Luis Mora in time of need

    The Daily Californian (Student Paper) ^ | January 16, 2018 | Editorial Board
    The UC Berkeley administration’s reaction to undocumented junior Luis Mora’s detainment by Border Patrol proves that the campus doesn’t give undocumented students the support they need. Within days of Mora’s detainment on Dec. 30 in San Diego, campus immigrant rights organization Rising Immigrant Scholars through Education, or RISE at Berkeley, launched a massive social media campaign to call for Mora’s release. Now is the time for public action, and the UC Berkeley administration — which has repeatedly expressed support for the undocumented community — should proudly lead the charge. Mora’s detainment isn’t an isolated incident; under President Donald Trump’s administration,...

    Walls have a variety of purposes. In the Soviet Union and East Germany, walls and fences were designed to keep people in, not to keep people out. Few chose to go "Back to the USSR," as The Beatles sang, other than newlyweds Mr. and Mrs. Bernie Sanders, who honeymooned there. Walls also keep people out. Examples include the wall around Vatican City, the one in Israel's West Bank, and the ones around the homes of open borders advocates like Mark Zuckerberg. Many of the "walls for me but not for thee" virtue-signaling Hollywood elites have walls, fences, and all manner...

    They clean federal office buildings in Washington and nurse older people in Boston. They are rebuilding hurricane-wrecked Houston. And working on the Atlanta Falcons’ new stadium. The plumbing and heating systems at Fannie Mae’s new headquarters, the porterhouse at Peter Luger Steak House and even the Disney World experience have all depended, in small part or large, on their labor. They are the immigrants from Haiti and Central America who have staked their livelihoods on the temporary permission they received years ago from the government to live and work in the United States. Hundreds of thousands now stand to lose...
  • WATCH — Kassam [Breitbart London] Blasts Sky News: Sadiq Khan’s London is a Sh*thole

    A discussion on U.S. President Donald Trump’s comments on developing nations and his decision to cancel his planned working visit to the UK in February soon turned to the failures of “shithole” London city mayor Sadiq Khan, as Breitbart London editor in chief Raheem Kassam was interviewed on Britain’s Sky News. Dismissing the President’s excuse that he didn’t want to visit London because the new U.S. embassy had been a bad financial deal, Kassam — the author of the 2017 bestselling book No Go Zones — laid the blame squarely on the shoulders of leading Labour party figures including the...

    A bipartisan group of six senators has reached an "agreement in principle" on immigration including the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, according to a joint statement released Thursday. "President Trump called on Congress to solve the DACA challenge. We have been working for four months and have reached an agreement in principle that addresses border security, the diversity visa lottery, chain migration/family reunification, and the Dream Act—the areas outlined by the president. We are now working to build support for that deal in Congress," said the joint statement released by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina; Dick Durbin, D-Illinois; Jeff...

    DALLAS - A man who was in the country illegally when he hit and killed a motorcyclist in Grand Prairie was recently arrested for trying to sneak back across the border. Border Patrol agents tracked 34-year-old Alejandro Pardo-Castro through some footprints and found him near a ranch south of Brackettville on Saturday. Pardo-Castro had no driver license and was here illegally when he hit and killed Modena Dollison, 43, of Waxahachie, on Hwy 161 near I-20 in Sept. 2011, according to court papers. Pardo-Castro was convicted of criminally negligent homicide. He served 18 months in prison before he was deported....

    According to the most recent Maryland census data, Salvadorans make up the largest number of Hispanics in the state of Maryland, at 26.3 percent, which is significantly larger than the national percentage of 3.3. This week, the Trump administration announced its decision to end temporary protected status for Salvadoran immigrants living in the U.S., forcing nearly 200,000 people to gain permanent residency or leave by September 2019 or face deportation. Maryland Sen. Ben Cardin is one lawmaker who voiced strong disapproval. "These are legal immigrants. They came here seeking refuge from tragedy. Now, about one-third of them are U.S. homeowners....

    The number of United States-born children who were given birthright citizenship despite at least one of their parents being an illegal alien living in the country now outnumbers one year of all American births. A new Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report the booming number of U.S.-born children to illegal aliens who are given automatic citizenship, forever anchoring their families in the U.S. These children are commonly known as “anchor babies,” as they are able to eventually bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the U.S. through the process known as “chain migration.” Every two new immigrants to the U.S....

    Vermont Public Radio ^ | January 5, 2018 | by John Dillon
    An escalation in immigration enforcement over the past year has brought a new level of anxiety for the several thousand migrant farm workers living in Vermont. For the first time since 2010, arrests and detentions by the U.S. Border Patrol increased in Vermont, New Hampshire and northeastern New York last year. The workers – many of them undocumented – are critically important to the state’s farm economy. To give you a sense of how important, consider that twice a year the Mexican government comes to a Vermont farm community to help hundreds of its citizens with financial and legal advice,...

    Neofita Valerio-Silva de Bernal, a former Grover Beach resident and mother of three American-born children, including a 16-year-old daughter, was detained by immigration officials after a Wednesday hearing and deported to Mexico on Thursday evening. Valerio-Silva’s advocates have argued for compassion, noting she is a homeowner who has committed no crimes other than residing in the U.S. without documentation. She lived in the U.S. for more than two decades and had a U.S. work permit. She was working as a local hotel maid while caring for her youngest daughter, a 16-year-old cheerleader at Arroyo Grande High School. Valerio-Silva was denied...

    President Trump is asking Congress to approve $18 billion in funding to finance his proposed wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, CBS News confirmed Friday. The request, which was first reported by The Wall Street Journal and confirmed to CBS by a White House official, would cover construction of the wall over a decade. The official said that it's a potential ask for lawmakers as they craft border enforcement measures and will be discussed at a Camp David retreat this weekend attended by Mr. Trump, GOP congressional leaders and members of the Cabinet. An administration official said that the document from...

Larry OngDon Tse December 20, 2017 During their November meeting in Beijing, United States President Donald Trump and General Secretary Xi Jinping stated their commitment to denuclearizing North Korea. Since then, the Trump administration has been sending signals that the U.S. is serious about going into North Korea if the Kim Jong Un regime forces the situation: U.S. National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster said in an interview that the probability of war with North Korea is “increasing every day.” American F-22 and F-35 fighter jets participated in a large-scale joint military exercise...

    The father of an Australian woman who was fatally shot by a Minnesota police officer this year said he was "deeply concerned" about the state's investigation into her death. "We are apprehensive that perhaps the BCA [Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension] has not fulfilled its promise," John Ruszczyk, the father of Justine Damond, said at a news conference in Sydney this morning. "We are deeply concerned about the possibility that the initial investigation was not done properly," he added. Ruszczyk's comments came just days after Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman was recorded on video last week telling activists that he...
