    ... WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. immigration officers keep apprehending and deporting members of the brutal Mara Salvatrucha (MS-13) gang, but they keep sneaking back across the southwest border into the United States, a high-ranking Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official told lawmakers. .... “We know they’re gang members. We know they’re criminals, but if the county or the city does not allow us to get into the jail to make that final determination, to process that individual for removal and take custody of that person, then they’re released back into the community to re-victimize,” he said. “We are not asking...

    The American edition, published in 1956, 468 pages, Translated by A.P. MaudsleyThe Diaz account is the best history book that I have read.

The campaign resulted in the discovery and conquest of the Aztec civilization in Mexico.Cortez himself wrote five long letters to Carlos V in Spain. Parts of them are...

    Thousands of soccer fans loudly booed the United States national anthem when it was played at Mexico City's Estadio Azteca before the two countries faced off in Sunday night's World Cup qualifier game. Thousands of fans jeered and refused to stand as the Star-Spangled Banner played over the sound system, making their dislike of the United States known. While Mexican fans booed during the national anthem, they celebrated their team's one goal of the night by hurling slurs towards American fans, who slung back insults in retaliation, according to the Miami Herald.....

    U.S. Senator Ted Cruz suggested that the U.S. military should be used against Mexican transnational criminal groups (cartels). The statements were made during a one-on-one interview with the senator at the end of May at the Bayer Museum of Agriculture in Lubbock, Texas. SEN. TED CRUZ: In the past decade, we have seen the control and reign of terror of the cartels wreak enormous damage to the nation of Mexico. Where ordinary citizens are terrified for their lives. Where crime and kidnapping becomes almost routine and the corruption that goes hand and hand with billions of dollars of illegal narcotic...

    Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday backed Mexico to press for a successful renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement with Donald Trump, thanking its government for keeping German interests in mind during the talks. Germany and Mexico have pursued policies tailored toward exporting manufactured goods, and both ran trade surpluses of more than $60 billion with the United States last year.

    There were not many open seats at a pair of meetings last week over proposed routes that would send Interstate 11 through the Tucson area. Many of those in attendance were there to speak against two of the alternatives, which run west of Saguaro National Park West in the Avra Valley.“I understand the need to provide ways for people to move around," said Kimberly Baeza, "But it doesn't have to come at the expense of our open landscapes and beautiful Sonoran Desert.”The meeting is part of the second step in selecting the route I-11 could take through Arizona.

  • Thanks to Mexican dumping, you can say aloha to Hawaiian sugar (opinion)

    Those of us of a certain age have a real attachment with Hawaii. We defended her when Japan attacked. We celebrated when she officially became a state in 1959. And we dreamed of vacations on her picturesque beaches. We also remember those commercials about sweet Hawaiian sugar for which the islands were synonymous. Not anymore. Hawaii stopped producing sugar entirely in December, after more than a century in the business. Not because Hawaii isn't good at producing sugar — it was one of the best. It's because Mexico violated United States trade laws, dumped subsidized sugar on the market, distorted...

    Today, Super Deluxe released a video featuring none other than Donald Trump‘s chief international troll, Vicente Fox. The former president of Mexico joined forces with the company to deliver some of the burns he usually reserves for his own Twitter account. Specifically, he tore into Trump’s preoccupation with the crowd size at his inauguration. Fox pulled out a photo of himself at his inauguration, saying it was “one of the proudest days of [his] life” because he was thinking, “I have been honored with the massive burden of millions of expectations and I must do my absolute best to be...

    Election machines in three states were not hacked to give Donald Trump the election. There was never a serious post-election movement of electors to defy their constitutional duties and vote for Hillary Clinton. Nor, once Trump was elected, did transgendered people begin killing themselves in alarming numbers. Nor were there mass resignations at the State Department upon his inauguration. Nor did Donald Trump seek an order to “ban all Muslims” from entering the U.S. Instead, he temporarily sought a suspension in visas for everyone, regardless of religion, from seven Middle Eastern states that the Obama administration had earlier identified as...

    Pope Francis says he won’t try to convince U.S. President Donald Trump to soften his policies on immigration and the environment when they meet this month, but wants instead to find common ground and work for peace. Francis said proselytizing isn’t his style — in politics or religion. Speaking to reporters while traveling home Saturday from a trip to Portugal, Francis said he would say what he thinks sincerely to Trump and listen respectfully to what Trump has to say. […] Speculation has swirled about what Trump and Francis will discuss during their May 24 audience, given Francis has already...

    It was the second deadliest conflict in the world last year, but it hardly registered in the international headlines. As Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan dominated the news agenda, Mexico's drug wars claimed 23,000 lives during 2016 -- second only to Syria, where 50,000 people died as a result of the civil war.

    According to figures released yesterday, the number of illegal aliens crossing the U.S. southwestern border has dropped by an astonishing 76% since President Trump took office.  More specifically, the number of minor children crossing the border with or without a parent has been cut even further. Washington Times: Illegal immigration across the southwestern border is down a stunning 76 percent since President Trump was elected, with the flow of children and families dropping even faster as analysts say the administration's commitment to enforcing the law has changed the reality along the border. Overall apprehensions by the Border Patrol dropped to just...

    Bar owner Paul Hennessey says he wanted to get people talking. To mark Cinco de Mayo, his Dana Point bar set up an inflatable wall for patrons to climb over — and handed out “green cards” that guaranteed one free drink to those who clambered to the top. Since then, Hennessey’s Tavern has gotten angry phone calls. Yelp reviewers have called the Cinco de Mayo event disgusting, tasteless and racist.

    HR 1813 is not the name of a deadly virus like H1N1. It's the Border Wall Funding Act 2017. Republican Congressman Mike Rogers from Alabama and eight of his colleagues introduced the act on March 30. If approved, it would be as lethal as swine flu. The act would impose a two per cent tax on all remittances from the US to Latin America and the Caribbean. Tax evaders could face up to 20 years in prison and a $500,000 fine. Jamaica is listed among the foreign countries to which the law would apply. But not Trinidad and Tobago. They're...

    NEW YORK (AP) — A U.S. judge on Friday set an April 2018 trial date for Mexican drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman on charges he oversaw a multibillion-dollar international drug trafficking organization responsible for murders and kidnappings. U.S. District Judge Brian Cogan first suggested during a pretrial hearing in Brooklyn that a trial could occur earlier next year, but he settled on April 16 after acknowledging the difficulty defense lawyers are having communicating with Guzman in a federal lockup in Manhattan where he is subjected to solitary confinement. Defense lawyers complained they are separated by glass or a screen...

    Cradling her newborn son in a steamy migrant shelter near the Guatemalan border, Concepcion Bautista says she still plans to reach the United States, but will linger in Mexico to see how U.S. President Donald Trump's immigration policies play out. Bautista fled Guatemala after gang members threatened to kill her and seized her home, demanding money to give it back. Her ultimate goal is to reunite with her father and two sons up north, but for the time being, she believes applying for asylum in Mexico is smarter than trying to break into Trump's United States....

    President Andrew Johnson invoked the Monroe Doctrine in February 1866, and demanded that the French leave Mexico There is actually more to the holiday of Cinco de Mayo than great tacos or lively music; there are lessons to be learned hidden within the history of this holiday, which provide deeper understanding of a very perilous time in the Americas. Today Cinco de Mayo has taken on a more political significance in light of Donald Trump’s campaign promises, and his challenge as the President of the United States to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico. It was one major...

    Maybe we should be celebrating Cinco De May more like this: Whereas Batalla de Puebla (Cinco De Mayo, 1862) was inconsequential to its eventual fall to the French and to the ultimate fall of Mexico. And whereas "the Congress of the United States are unwilling, by silence, to leave the nations of the world under the impression that they are indifferent spectators of the deplorable events now transpiring in the Republic of Mexico; and they therefore think fit to declare that it does not accord with the policy of the United States to acknowledge a monarchical government, erected on the...
