    Hillsborough, N.C. ó Immigration officials fired back at the Orange County sheriff Wednesday afternoon during a battle over his jail releasing a man who was supposed to be deported.

Aguilar-Castellanos walked out of the detention center on June 27 after pleading guilty in court to the sexual battery of an 11-year-old girl. The judge ruled he had more than served his time, but...

    The Democratic rebuttal memo to the Republican House Intelligence Committee memo on alleged government surveillance abuses was released Saturday afternoon. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., acknowledged its release at his appearance at the Conservative Political Action Conference, at about 4 p.m. "It's just posted," he told American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp, quipping that the committee website was probably already crashing due to high traffic. Democrats say their memo was written as a rebuttal to provide greater context to a Republican memo that was released earlier this month, which outlines abuses by the FBI and the Justice Department...

    The enthusiasm felt by Border Patrol agents following news of President Trumpís strong stance on border and immigration enforcement is slowly dissipating as the reality sinks in that actual enforcement of stronger rules may not be changing much from the Obama years. Agents hoped to be able to return to the days where they could inspect the immigration status of suspicious individuals at transportation hubs, jails or even businesses ó not only as an immigration enforcement measure, but to prevent terrorism. According to some agents, there is a general feeling of a ďdisconnectĒ between what President Trump and Homeland Security...
