    (AFP) US President Donald Trump threatened to pull immigration and other federal law enforcement agents from California on Thursday, a warning shot to the country’s richest and most populous state. Complaining that California was not complying with his hardline position on migrants, Trump warned he could cut vital help from Washington and prompt a crime wave.

    Israeli universities rejected a request to grant refuge to employment-seeking African infiltrators, Channel 20 reported. The idea was proposed by Yoel Marshak, who served as the Kibbutz Movement's activities coordinator until a few years ago. Marshak told Arutz Sheva that "the police are forbidden from entering [universities.] We will ask embassies to host them for a few days. During those days, we will negotiate with the Israeli government. If we don't negotiate now, we'll be negotiating then, in desperation." "There is an international agreement that police do not enter a university campus without permission from the university's management. We will...

    The East Haven Police on Wednesday released a video of the Pastor confronting officers and trying to block them from taking an accused violent offender, who hid inside the church, back to police headquarters for processing. Police said the Pastor was "extremely irate" that police officers entered her church to search for a violent fugitive who had just attacked his mother repeatedly with a telephone in their home Tuesday. The Pastor physically attempted to stop police officers from leaving with the accused including jumping in front of the police car, police said. The Pastor demanded that police release the accused...

    A Mexican Uber driver living in the U.S. illegally was charged Monday with raping, assaulting and robbing young women in California, prosecutors said. Alfonso Alarcon-Nunez's four alleged victims are between 19 and 22 years old and three were intoxicated when they were assaulted, San Luis Obispo County District Attorney Dan Dow told reporters. Officials said Alarcon-Nunez was not always driving for Uber when he picked up those women but said the alleged crimes show that the company should improve its driver screening process, Dow said.

    Federal prosecutors are considering filing criminal charges against elected officials harboring illegal aliens in so-called sanctuary cities, Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen told lawmakers at a hearing dominated by Democrats hectoring her over whether President Trump used profanity during a closed-door negotiating session about immigration reform. Jailing the leaders of sanctuary jurisdictions is long overdue.

    Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen confirmed Tuesday that her department has asked federal prosecutors to see if they can lodge criminal charges against sanctuary cities that refuse to cooperate with federal deportation efforts. “The Department of Justice is reviewing what avenues may be available,” Ms. Nielsen told the Senate Judiciary Committee. Her confirmation came after California’s new sanctuary law went into effect Jan. 1, severely restricting cooperation the state or any of its localities could offer.

    Editorial Sanctuary state policies come at a cost Consistent with campaign promises, the first year of Trump’s presidency saw a noticeable uptick in immigration enforcement. Unfortunately, much of it was against noncriminal undocumented immigrants. According to data released by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency last month, both arrests and deportations of undocumented immigrants without a criminal conviction increased significantly from prior years. Of the 143,470 administrative arrests made in fiscal year 2017, more than one in four of those arrested did not have a criminal conviction, with 10.8 percent not having any criminal record at all. Notably, “at-large”...

    Land of leaving: Moving companies rank Illinois No. 1 for outbound vans Studies by two major American moving companies rank Illinois as the top “outbound” state of 2017. On Jan. 2, United Van Lines released its 41st annual National Movers Study and Atlas Van Lines released its 2017 Migration Patterns study. United based the study on its customers’ household moves made in 2017, and Atlas studied nearly 73,000 interstate and cross-border relocations of household goods from Jan. 1, 2017 through Dec. 15, 2017. In both studies, Illinois was home to the highest rate of outbound moves in the nation. United’s...

    New York’s undocumented came out of the shadows under Obama. Now, with Trump, they fear giving away personal details could have been a big mistake. As President Donald Trump fights to deliver on his pledge to rapidly deport 2 to 3 million people living in the country without visas, there’s a pile of almost a million documents with details of many of New York City’s undocumented people — information they themselves willingly handed over that today risk leading federal immigration forces right to their front doors. More than a million of the country's estimated 11.1 million undocumented immigrants live in...

    A 41-year-old San Francisco plumber who was on a losing streak at local casinos and faced eviction for not paying his rent was found guilty Monday of slaughtering a family of five inside their Ingleside neighborhood home after targeting them for robbery. On its seventh day of deliberations, the San Francisco Superior Court jury found Binh Thai Luc, an undocumented Vietnamese immigrant with a violent criminal past, guilty of five counts of murder in the massacre of the Lei family on March 23, 2012. ---------------------------- Before the killings, Luc was convicted in 1998 of committing an armed robbery at a...
  • Have We Been Lied To About The Kate Steinle Case?

    Red State ^ | November 30, 2017 | Sarah Rumpf
    So, we have a defendant with zero connection to Steinle. He had a history of drug crimes but no known violent crimes. The bullet that killed Steinle hit the ground and then ricocheted upwards. There was a video possibly showing another group of people disposing of the gun where Garcia Zarate said he found it. Reviewing the SIG Sauer website shows these handguns cost $1,000 or more. You can see how defense counsel could easily argue that a homeless illegal immigrant would be unfamiliar with one. All of this adds up to the defense presenting a plausible explanation for how...

    This week, Jose Ines Garcia Zarate, the man who shot and killed Kate Steinle in 2015, was acquitted of all homicide-related charges (murder, manslaughter, negligent homicide) by a San Francisco jury. The sole charge on which jurors could agree he was guilty was “illegal possession of a firearm.” Speaking “off-the-record,” Juror X explained that “the fact that the defendant had previously been deported five times persuaded us that he was not really responsible for killing Ms. Steinle. On the one hand, several jurors blamed the government for inciting Mr. Garcia’s rage. Being repeatedly forced to sneak into the country at...

U.S. District Court Judge William Orrick issued the ruling Monday in lawsuits brought by...

    Hundreds of New York City teachers who'd lost their full-time positions but stayed on the payroll will be headed back to classrooms within the next few weeks. About a third of those teachers, it turns out, have faced legal or disciplinary charges. The city's education department announced this summer that schools that hadn't filled all their teaching positions by Oct. 15 would be assigned educators from the "absent teacher reserve" pool. According to a spokesman at the New York City Department of Education, the "matches" between teachers and schools are being made now, and those teachers will go into schools...

Judicial Watch blew the scandal open in September and is embroiled in a public records saga with Ft. Collins officials for documents surrounding the selection process and abrupt elimination of a respected veteran law enforcement official with impressive credentials. Ft. Collins is trying to keep records secret by asserting that the “material is so candid or personal that public...

    A preschool that leases space from the Unitarian Universalist Church of Boulder is shutting down at the end of the month after the church congregation voted to become a sanctuary for undocumented immigrants facing deportation. "It put us out of business," said Active Boulder Kids owner Kristen Argow Heaton. About 90 percent of the congregation that attended a church meeting on the matter last month voted to move forward with plans to outfit a portion of the building to provide living quarters for an immigrant taking sanctuary. Argow Heaton said that parents notified the church ahead of the vote that...
