    Bush also discusses his favorite music genres in Sunday's interview, which includes country, Christian, rap and Latin. In his first Spanish-language television network interview since launching his 2016 presidential campaign, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush fielded questions ranging from the upcoming presidential debate to Donald Trump, from Latin American foreign policy to his favorite music, and whether he had ever experienced discrimination. Bush shared experience his son George P. Bush, who is now 39 years old, had when he and his Hispanic teammates traveled north to Ocala, Florida, to play in a baseball game. "George, he's dark-skinned, and they spoke...

    Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush says he's not worried about running against Donald Trump for the nomination or the fact that the billionaire businessman is in first place in several national polls. -snip- Bush also says he's recently become a fan of bilingual rap star Pitbull, although he also likes Christian music. Bush speaks Spanish fluently and speaks the language at home with his Mexican wife, Columba. The interview airs Sunday at noon Eastern time.

    MEXICO CITY, July 31, 2015 (ChurchMilitant.com) - Tens of thousands of people marched in Mexico last Saturday to protest the country's recent Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex "marriage." The decision rendered void many pre-existing state constitutions defining marriage as between a man and woman. So Mexicans took to the streets under the "Mexico is One for the Children" slogan. Sofia Miranda, one of its organizers, sent a letter to Mexico's hostile media clarifying, "We are not against any person; we are against this Supreme Court imposition." She warns, echoing Pope Francis, that recognizing same-sex unions as somehow being a form...

    The man accused of killing two Good Samaritans who tried to help him on a Montana roadside was encountered by immigration authorities earlier this year after a burglary arrest, but was unable to be deported because he had already gotten legal status, federal authorities said this week. Mr. Deniz is Mexican, and the Obama administration deems him a legal permanent resident who entered the country legally on May 31, 2013 — though they didn’t say how he earned that status initially. Indeed, just a month ago Mr. Deniz was arrested by police in Worland, Wyo., on burglary charges. U.S. Immigration...

As a Catholic priest, I can only say it is embarrassing to have a Cardinal so blatantly and unfairly trying to associate Mr. Trump with the worst kinds of racism imaginable. I offer an apology on behalf of so many Catholics who are outraged by the dirty politics of Cardinal Dolan.

Thus, an ICE detainer cannot be placed on the individual at this time. However, ICE is closely monitoring this case and coordinating with local authorities. If he is convicted for a...

    Republican presidential contender Jeb Bush called Donald Trump's candidacy a "phenomenon," and said his outspoken rival has "appealed to people's anger" as he has skyrocketed to the top of the polls. "I was surprised that Donald Trump has surged. I think he's captured the deep frustration that people feel," Bush told NBC News' Lester Holt in an exclusive interview on Friday. Trump — who kicked off his campaign with controversial comments accusing Mexico of sending its rapists and murderers to the U.S. — has a large lead over the GOP presidential field, a Quinnipiac poll released Thursday showed.

Respondents to the automated telephone survey were given a choice of the top 10 candidates as recently determined by a Politico story, pollster Mike Noble told The Arizona Republic. In that poll, recently announced candidate Ohio Gov. John Kasich barely missed the cut and was not included in the survey. Trump was the favorite of 26.5 percent. He was followed by Wisconsin Gov.

The foreigners are classified as Special Interest Aliens (SIA) and they are being transported to stash areas in Acala, a rural crossroads located around 54 miles from El Paso on a state road – Highway 20. Once in the U.S., the SIAs wait for pick-up in the area’s sand hills just...

    In his bid to connect with Hispanic voters, Jeb Bush has taken an extra, unusual step. The Republican presidential contender has hired Raul Henriquez to staff him on the campaign trail. The former congressional aide speaks fluent Spanish and serves as Bush's second "body man." Henriquez' title refers to an aide whose job it is to staff Bush at all times. But he was added to the former Florida governor's traveling entourage — alternating time on the road with Bush's regular body man — to ease interaction between the candidate and Spanish-speaking voters. That's just one example of Bush's commitment...

    MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Five men in northern Mexico were sentenced to an unprecedented 697 years in prison for the gender-driven killing of 11 women, in a state where hundreds of young women have been murdered since 1990. The sentence was the longest-ever given for a femicide, the killing of a woman due to her gender and was based on scientific evidence, said an official at the attorney general's office in the state of Chihuahua, home of the border city of Ciudad Juarez, which in 2008 recorded one woman missing each day.

    A story about Jeb Bush being in favor of amnesty, er… sorry, “comprehensive immigration reform” shouldn’t be anything new. But at the same time, the candidate seems to have been sending some mixed messages to the base over the course of his 2016 campaign. Not that long ago he said that he would rescind the President’s executive amnesty program, but speaking to a different outlet during that same week he hinted pretty much the exact opposite. It can all be so confusing, can’t it? But this week he did an interview for a Spanish speaking outlet where he seems to...

    On June 25, the United States issued a formal request to the Mexican government for the extradition of Joaquín Guzmán Loera, known as Chapo, who was being held at Mexico’s highest security prison. On July 11, less than three weeks later, Guzmán Loera released himself from the supposedly impregnable prison in President Enrique Peña Nieto’s home state, by means of a sixty-foot-deep tunnel that had apparently been dug from a half-built house a mile away, directly into the shower of his prison cell. Guzmán, of course, had been transferred to the Almoloya prison immediately after his capture eighteen months earlier,...

"When we have politicians like that we cannot progress." "In a political sense it was bad, and it creates an environment that is worse," he added.

The attorney general's office says the number of bodies found from October to May could be more, because it is counting only those instances in which its mass grave specialists get involved.

During Friday's interview, Trump said the U.S. should take a two-step approach to the 11 million undocumented immigrants currently living in the country. "Well, the first thing we do is take the bad ones — of which there are, unfortunately, quite a few," said Trump,...

In a decision late Friday roundly rejecting the administration’s arguments for holding the families, Judge Dolly M.

    Is Mexico adopting an old British practice from the colonial era? Is Donald Trump correct when he says Mexico is sending some of its criminals into the United States mixed in with otherwise law abiding immigrants? During the colonial period Britain cut the cost of operating jails by sentencing some of its criminals to “penal transportation to” the North American colonies. After the American Revolution “transportation” meant being sent to Australia or New Zealand. The practice was particularly common with Irish and Scottish criminals and is mentioned in some Irish folk songs

    He was the adult in the room.. He was the conservative who wasn’t a demagogue. He was the Republican that even many Democrats could support. He had money, name recognition (for better or worse), was well-liked, and seen as the GOP front runner. So what has happened to Jeb Bush? No, it’s not all Donald Trump. For whatever reason, Bush’s campaign hasn’t gained traction. He not only trails Trump in most polls, but he is also behind Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who most people could not pick out of a lineup.

    TRUMP OPPONENTS TAKE NUANCED VIEW OF CHILD RAPE July 22, 2015 There are few sexual perversions not celebrated by our media today, but I gather, from decades of flood-the-zone coverage of even the most preposterous allegations of rape, that liberals are still on record as being against rape. So it's worth examining the cultures we're introducing to America for the purpose of giving the Democrats votes and businesses cheap labor: -- Seventy-seven percent of reported sexual assaults in Lima, Peru, are against child victims, according to the Latin American and Caribbean Youth Network for Sexual and Reproductive Rights (REDLAC). --...

    The local branch of a union of border patrol agents slated to host Donald Trump's visit to the U.S.-Mexico border on Thursday has pulled out of the event. In a statement, National Border Patrol Council Local 2455 said: "After careful consideration of all the factors involved in this event and communicating with members of the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) at the National level, it has been decided by Local 2455 to pull out of all events involving Donald Trump." Trump's campaign says it will proceed with his visit in Laredo, Texas, as planned.
  • Donald Trump's Suits Are Made In Mexico! Hypocrite Much?

    ? Did Mr. Trump forget to mention where his suiting was actually made at the time? Seems like it. Does it really matter now that Macy’s will stop selling his collection? Maybe not, but it just goes to prove how he’s losing his mind.
  • Democrats slam sanctuary city legislation, labeling it 'The Donald Trump Act'

    The Hill ^ | July 22, 2015 | Mike Lillis
    House Democratic leaders are slamming GOP legislation aimed at discouraging sanctuary cities, characterizing the proposal as "The Donald Trump Act" in a bid to embarrass the Republicans bringing the measure to the floor this week. The proposal, which would withhold federal law enforcement funds for state or local governments that refuse to cooperate with federal immigration agents, comes in response to this month's fatal shooting of Kathryn Steinle along the San Francisco waterfront, allegedly by an illegal immigrant with a long criminal history. The House vote on the Republicans' sanctuary city bill is scheduled for Thursday, and it is expected...

    Unlike Des Moines, Iowa and Manchester, New Hampshire, Laredo, Texas isn’t a typical stop on the presidential campaign trail. Unless you are Donald Trump. The town on the U.S.-Mexico border will become the center of attention Thursday when the Republican presidential candidate stops by for a visit. Trump’s visit to the town, where the population is over 90 percent Hispanic, will begin with a town hall meeting in which law enforcement officers will give The Donald their own views on the situation at the border. Trump also plans to hold a news conference. Garza said his invitation to Trump should...

    If there's a small silver lining for the Republican Party in the bonanza of insanity that is Donald Trump's candidacy, it's this: He's single-handedly managed to make the rest of the GOP field look downright reasonable by comparison. There's less talk of a "clown car" primary when the main attraction is the ringmaster of his own circus. Each day, Trump seems to reach new heights of absurdity, offensiveness, and popularity among Republican poll respondents. On Tuesday, he called fellow candidate Lindsey Graham an "idiot" and handed out the South Carolina senator's cellphone number — a response to Graham referring to...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) interrogated the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement director in a contentious exchange during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on immigration policy on Tuesday.One particularly interesting back-and-forth occurred when ICE Director Sarah Saldana disputed Cruz’s assertion that the Obama administration released 104,000 “criminal illegal aliens.”“When I asked you how many criminals ICE released in 2013, you were off by a factor of three,” Cruz said. “You said 30,000 — the correct answer is 104,000.”Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) Saldana argued she thought she was asked about 2014 and claimed the number was actually 30,558 released illegal aliens that...

    More than 100 people turned out to hear Jeb Bush campaign on Tuesday. Bush told the crowd the Republican party will not win the election if it doesn't become more inclusive and spoke to the crowd about hope. "This will be the greatest time to be alive. I wake up each day thinking that," Bush said. He talked about creating change. "A Republican president, and I hope to be that Republican president, will actually, fasten your seat belts here; this may be a radical idea, may have to talk to somebody who doesn't agree with them," Bush said.
