    Some 50 members of migrant caravan reach Mexico, U.S. border By Reuters Published: 22:52 EDT, 19 April 2018 | Updated: 22:52 EDT, 19 April 2018 By Lizbeth Diaz MEXICO CITY, April 19 (Reuters) - A group of 50 Central American migrants who set out from southern Mexico in late March have reached the U.S. border, having endured the long journey despite threats by President Donald Trump to secure the border with National Guard personnel. Since peaking at around 1,500 people, the so-called migrant "caravan" has dwindled under pressure from Trump and Mexican migration authorities, who vowed to separate those migrants...

    Quebec warned the federal government on Monday that it has reached the limit of its capacity process undocumented asylum seekers entering Canada through Quebec and will enforce that limit in its temporary shelters beginning April 24. Quebec has 1,850 spaces in its four temporary shelters in Montreal, and 75 per cent of those spaces are already occupied. Quebec Immigration Minister David Heurtel said Monday that capacity will not be allowed to pass 85 per cent in order to maintain space and resources to accommodate those asylum seekers who used regular channels to enter the country. The number of undocumented asylum...

    An attorney for Trump, Jay Sekulow and his senior counsel Carly Gammill appeared in a Washington D.C. federal court last week to find out when they will be receiving documents related to the Obama unmasking scandal. The ACLJ (American Center For Law and Justice) filed a FOIA lawsuit last summer and they are just now beginning to receive documents. Sekulow revealed the first batch of unmasking documents on his radio show Jay Live on Tuesday. The ACLJ received heavily redacted emails from former US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power that show unprecedented unmasking and political bias in the final...

    A 32-year-old Syrian has set an apartment block alight in the German town of Leipzig. The man will be charged with arson and murder, Germany’s Bild newspaper reports. The refugee set fire to the apartment block in the early hours of Good Friday. As a result one person died, 17 were injured and several house pets died in the fire as well. A video shows how people were stuck on the roof of the building and had to jump down on a Fire Department cushion. Police think the man started the fire in a rubbish bin and intentionally blocked the...

    Minutes after wishing Americans a Happy Easter, President Trump revealed a major shift in his strategy for pursuing an immigration deal with Democrats, and it’s one that Trump-supporters-turned-critics like Anne Coulter may finally approve. In a tweet, Trump – who has been crucified so to speak by the conservative media for caving in and failing to obtain border wall funding – complained that US border agents aren’t allowed to do their jobs properly because of “ridiculous liberal (Democratic) laws” like “catch and release”. And with more “dangerous caravans coming” to the US border, “Republicans must go to Nuclear Option to...

The scores of men were also using telescopic batons in the fight in Druisburg, which is on the west of Germany. Police said they were spat at and had objects hurled at them. Around 50 people were arrested and onlookers captured the brutality in shocking photos. Those arrested refused to explain what...

    At Brooklands College in July 2017, Ahmed Hassan was awarded a prize as "student of the year". He used the £20 Amazon voucher he received to purchase the first of the ingredients he needed to build his bomb. Mr Justice Haddon-Cave seems almost to suggest that "violating" the law of the Quran and Islam is an offense in itself -- one worth noting alongside the crime of putting a bomb on a packed commuter train. ... Ahmed Hassan .. left a homemade bomb on the train. At Parson's Green tube station, the device detonated. Fortunately for the commuters, which included...

Citing sources, Europe 1 radio said the same individual was now holding up to eight hostages at the supermarket. The man had declared allegiance to Islamic State, according to the local state prosecutor.

    South Africa has dismissed allegations its white farmers are "persecuted" after an Australian minister said they needed help from a "civilised" country.Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said he was exploring giving South Africa's white farmers access to fast-track visas on humanitarian grounds. The suggestion was made amid calls to transfer land ownership from white to black farmers in South Africa, and fears over the number of farm killings.But South Africa says it is ridiculous.Government spokesman Ndivhuwo Mabaya told the BBC there was no reason for any country in the world to suspect a section of the South African population was...

    Administrators do little as school descends into war zone. MINNEAPOLIS – Safety concerns arise as violence continues to escalate at Southwest High School. On top of an already failing administration, Southwest High School staff are struggling to maintain peace between students. Last Friday, March 2, multiple fights broke out during the school’s second lunch period. Despite attempts to sweep the issue under the rug and downplay the violence, persistent students and parents forced the administration to address the situation. Videos of the fight posted online forced the administration to hold an emergency meeting. The highly anticipated fight between two students who...

    Is it possible that mainstream politicians and the mainstream media are finally recognising what the European public can see with their own eyes? Two recent occurrences suggest that this might be so. The first is a concession by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who almost half a year after her party's embarrassment in national elections has finally managed to put together a coalition government. Last September saw not only Merkel's party and her erstwhile coalition partners suffer a historic dent in their vote-share, but also saw the entry to Parliament of the five-year old anti-immigration AfD (Alternative for Germany) party, which...

    BRENTWOOD, N.Y. — The old minivan appeared near the school on a Tuesday morning, its Illinois plates the only thing out of place in the blue-collar suburbs of central Long Island. But as backpack-toting teenagers passed by on their way to Brentwood High, the van’s doors suddenly swung open. Out sprang members of the violent street gang MS-13, armed with baseball bats. They attacked three 16-year-old students they suspected of being rivals before driving off. When police spotted the van in the same neighborhood the following afternoon and surrounded it at gunpoint, the MS-13 members were in the midst of...

    The rejection of asylum for about 100 Iranian Christian refugees by the Trump administration is raising eyebrows among advocates for the persecuted Church in Islamic nations. One advocacy group, Barnabas Aid, has gone so far as to call the rejected asylum applications “an insult to America’s Christian and humanitarian heritage and a betrayal by the Trump administration.” The Christian refugees, many of whom can recount horrific stories of persecution they have experienced at the hands of Iranian mullahs, now have less than a week to leave Austria, where they have been stranded for more than a year, unwanted by the...
