    From  pjmedia.com: PJ Media obtained a never-before-released copy of a Texas DPS report on human smuggling containing the numbers of crimes committed by aliens in Texas.   According to the analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, foreign aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults. The precise number of homicides (presumably murders and non-negligent manslaughters) is listed as 2,993.  From the FBI UCR, Table 20, the murders and non-negligent manslaughters listed for Texas in those years are the following: 2008 1372, 2009  1325 2010  1246 2011 1089...

    WASHINGTON, D.C., July 22, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) - Planned Parenthood's legal counsel has responded to a Congressional investigation by hinting that future undercover footage may include the dissection and harvesting of an aborted baby.The doctor caught discussing organ sales over wine and salad will also not be made available for testimony as requested, the letter, addressed by Planned Parenthood's Senior Counsel for Law and Policy, Roger K.

    Sandra Bland, the black woman found hanging dead in a Texas jail days after a traffic stop, smoked or possibly swallowed a large amount of marijuana while in custody, her family's attorney reported the district attorney as saying. Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis made the disclosure in a text message to attorney Cannon Lambert, who has called the state's autopsy on the Chicago-area woman defective, Lambert said. "Looking at the autopsy results and toxicology, it appears she swallowed a large quantity of marijuana or smoked it in the jail," Mathis said in a text message to Lambert that the...

    BROKEN ARROW, Okla. – Police responding to a silent 911 call found five people stabbed to death inside a well-kept suburban Tulsa home, then detained two teenage male relatives of the victims after a police dog tracked them down in nearby woods. Broken Arrow Police Sgt. Thomas Cooper said Thursday that officers responded to the house near the Indian Springs Country Club after emergency operators received an "open 911 call" -- a call in which no one speaks but the line remains connected. Police traced the number to the home and found a scene so disturbing that police warned that...

    “Here in the House, the people’s priorities continue to be our priorities,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told a news conference on Wednesday—one day after the father of Kate Steinle, a murdered San Francisco woman, urged Congress to pass legisation that would take felonious illegal aliens off America's streets for good. “We feel if Kate’s Law saves one daughter, one son, a mother, a father, Kate’s death won’t be in vain,” Jim Stienle told the Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. But on Wednesay, Boehner listed “the people’s priorities” as entitlement reform; human trafficking; veterans’ health care; free trade, EPA regulations;...

Thirty-five people were also wounded in shootings as far north as the Albany Park neighborhood and as far south as Roseland. Some of the wounded were in critical condition.

    A pro-life and medical ethics group has released a second undercover video that claims to show a Planned Parenthood Federation of America official “haggling” over aborted fetuses, as well as the abortion methods used to procure “specimens.” The heavily edited, more than eight-minute video from the Center for Medical Progress features a discussion between two actors posing as tissue buyers and Dr. Mary Gatter, a doctor at Planned Parenthood and the president of the medical doctors’ council.

Dr. Mary Gatter, President of Planned Parenthood’s Medical Director’s Council, is asked, “What would you expect for intact tissue?” Gatter starts to haggle immediately, “Why don’t you start by telling me what you’re used to paying?” When pushed for a number, Gatter says, “Well, you know in negotiations the person who throws out the figure first is at a...

    Deportation orders failed to oust two illegal immigrants who are now up on drug charges and under investigation in the July 4 shooting death of a Lawrence grandmother — in an alarming case that critics say illustrates a revolving immigration door with dangerous consequences. Dominican Republic nationals Wilton Lara-Calmona and Jose M. Lara-Mejia were arrested on drug charges by police investigating the shooting death of Mirta Rivera, 41. The Lawrence nurse was killed in her sleep by a gunshot fired through the ceiling from an upstairs apartment, where both men lived. But Immigration and Customs Enforcement records reviewed by the...

    Gun control advocates insist that tougher gun laws will reduce murder rates, but according to a new report by the Crime Prevention Research Center, just the opposite has been true under President Obama.

Among the findings in our report: -- The number of concealed handgun permits is increasing at an ever- increasing rate.

Reporting from the sanctuary city of Chicago, Telemundo correspondent Janet Rodríguez cited an unauthorized immigrant in favor of the policy, along with two quotes from Congressman Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL), who had the gall to minimize Kate Steinle’s murder, at the hands of a hardened criminal and five-time deportee, in the sanctuary city of San Francisco. “Every time a little thing like this happens, they...

In California, if one assumes that the law as written should be followed, one is dubbed either a cave-dweller or an apostate.

    If you don't recognize the name Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, don't worry: You will. He's not a candidate for president, but before long he'll have higher name recognition than Jeb Bush. A felon convicted on several drug charges, the Mexican national had been deported five times but managed to get back into the country. He has been arrested for the apparently random murder of 32-year-old Kate Steinle in San Francisco on July 1. For anti-immigration advocates, his case starkly exposes everything that is wrong with our immigration policies. Those flaws would be: First, Lopez-Sanchez was here -- illustrating our unwillingness to secure...

Olander’s family tried reaching him for several days. Then on Saturday, April 11, a neighbor went to check on him and found him dead on the living room floor of his farmhouse in Carver County. Olander’s hands were tied, and he had been brutally attacked and his home ransacked. More than a month later, a tip led law enforcement to Vergara and Benitez....

The deposition was taken as part of a wrongful death lawsuit filed by family representatives on behalf of Reaves’ only surviving son. After Gittler’s incriminating statement in which there were many inconsistencies and much blame-shifting, Planned Parenthood settled with the family...

On Monday, illegal alien Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, a 45-year-old repeat drug offender who had been deported five times, was charged with killing Kathryn Steinle, 32, at Pier 14 in the “sanctuary city” of San Francisco. The details surrounding this case are a testament to the multi-layered bankruptcy of progressive ideology. We begin with the contemptible notion of a sanctuary city itself.

Turning the Confederate Flag into a symbol of racial harmony would rob racists of an opportunity to misuse a popular southern symbol to further their goals

[Snip] The boy’s father, Antonio Brown, is a ranking gang member with 45 previous arrests and was not cooperating with police as of Sunday afternoon as they tried to find his son’s killer, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said Sunday.

    All four of the Democratic candidates for president have expressed support for sanctuary cities, a controversial policy that is being blamed for the recent release of a five times-deported illegal alien who allegedly murdered a woman in broad daylight in San Francisco. As a senator from New York, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner, twice made public statements backing sanctuary cities. In 2008, she and two other Democratic candidates, Vermont U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Virginia U.S. Sen. Jim Webb, voted against an amendment that would block federal funds from going to sanctuary cities. And last year, as governor of...

    The horrific murder of a pretty young woman by an illegal alien at a prime tourist location in San Francisco is validating the argument of Donald Trump on the influx of violent criminals, and causing at least some local media reflection in arguably the nation’s most politically correct city. This morning edition of the San Francisco Chronicle website (which reflects the newspaper’s front page to some extent) gives prominent placement to Trump’s contention that the murder of Kathryn Steinle shows that he’s right. And the digital-only SFGate site gives him even more prominent play, using an unflattering picture. update:...

    SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Donald Trump reignited the call to secure U.S. borders just hours after federal officials said the man arrested in the shooting death of a San Francisco woman was an undocumented immigrant who had previously been deported five times. CBS San Francisco reached out the Donald Trump presidential campaign who then released this written statement: “This senseless and totally preventable act of violence committed by an illegal immigrant is yet another example of why we must secure our border immediately."

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A lawyer for San Francisco's sheriff's office says it had no authority to honor an immigration detainer on a suspect in the shooting death of a woman at a popular tourist destination.Francisco Sanchez has seven felony convictions and has been deported five times, most recently in 2009, a federal agency said Friday. He was arrested about an hour after Wednesday's seemingly random slaying of Kathryn Steinle at Pier 14 — one of the busiest attractions in the city.

    I hate when that happens. The man arrested in connection with the seemingly random killing of a woman who was out for a stroll with her father along the San Francisco waterfront is an illegal immigrant who previously had been deported five times, federal immigration officials say. Further, immigration officials say San Francisco had him in their custody earlier this year but failed to notify Immigration and Customs Enforcement when he was released. But they just want to come here for a "better life", right? Yeah, and to commit murder, it would appear. Further, our "catch and release" system, along...

    I completely disagree with the Supreme Court decision to block Texas from enforcing restrictions on abortion clinics that would force 10 centers in the state to close. Let me be clear, the regulations that were being placed on these clinics were mainly focused on enforcing safety and guidelines for a very delicate procedure. What the state of Texas is asking for is that these independent clinics performing these procedures be held to the same clinical standards as any other surgical center in the country. In other words, the regulations would have mandated that these clinics have of all the tools...

    In Kansas, Shawnee County District Court Judge Larry Hendricks issued an order blocking that state’s ban on abortions carried out by tearing the baby limb-from-limb while still in the womb. The Judge’s order came in response to a lawsuit filed by the New York-based Center for Reproductive Rights on behalf of Dr. Herbert Hodes and Dr. Traci Nauser—a father-daughter team of abortionists. “To allow this law to go into effect while the matter is being litigated would deprive the plaintiffs of their livelihood,” Hendricks said. “It would inflict irreparable harm and injury to their recognized right to ply their trade.”...

    Professors who rail against the imprisonment of blacks rarely show as much interest in black victims of crime. “In 1980, there were 500,000 Americans in prison or jail,” Jason Stanley writes in The Chronicle Review. “By 2013, there were more than 2.3 million.” “The explosion in incarceration has fallen disproportionately on the descendants of slaves. White Americans are 77 percent of the U.S. population, and black Americans 13 percent. Yet more blacks are incarcerated than whites.” Stanley is a philosophy professor at Yale. His conclusions resemble those of 20 scholars who recently completed a study under the auspices of the...
  • Judge Blocks Ban on Dismemberment Abortion On Grounds It Creates An Obstacle for Women

    A district judge in Kansas blocked the state’s ban on “dismemberment abortion” – the first ban of its kind in the United States – on the grounds that prohibiting the procedure would create an “obstacle” for women who want to terminate their pregnancies with brutal dismemberment. Dismemberment is a late-term abortion procedure in which an unborn, living baby is torn to pieces and removed from the uterus. The new law would have prohibited abortionists from using forceps, clamps, scissors and other instruments to cut the unborn baby into pieces prior to removing its remains from the uterus. Lawmakers in Kansas...

    The Rev. Jesse Jackson on Thursday credited the civil rights movement for breaking down barriers and bringing the South into the modern world. Thanks to the efforts of activists, the South renewed itself and became attractive to investors and others. And now, in the wake of last week’s mass shooting at Emanuel AME Church, Jackson sees an opportunity to address the systemic problems that have persisted since the 1960s.
