    Videos at link. Advocates for immigrant rights in Oregon plan to ask a state committee Friday to approve a rule banning U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) from making wholesale arrests of immigrants at or around the state’s courthouses. Upset over immigration arrests at courthouses has flared since Donald Trump was elected president. Within days of Trump taking office in January 2017, advocates for immigrants began reporting some highly public arrests or attempted arrests by ICE agents who were wearing plainclothes and offered little or no explanation. Advocates say the arrests have had a chilling effect on immigrants who now...

    An Oklahoma sheriff’s department defied ICE and released an accused rapist from jail this week — and within hours he was back at the door of his alleged victim, the agency said Thursday, saying the county’s sanctuary policy put the woman at risk. Antonio Ulises Perez was charged with first-degree rape on Sept. 30, and made bond early Wednesday morning. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had asked that he be transferred to the custody of deportation officers, but the sheriff’s department refused, and released him instead. “Within a few hours of being released, this illegal alien was back at the...

    Police in the Seattle suburb of Bellevue had a chance to get Carlos Daniel Carillo-Lopez, an illegal immigrant, off the streets in March — but a local jail defied a deportation notification request from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and released him into the community. Three weeks later, police say, the 19-year-old Guatemalan, eager to join the violent Surenos street gang, took part in a murder posse that tracked down and slew a teen from a rival gang. Mr. Carillo-Lopez, who came to the U.S. as part of the Unaccompanied Alien Child (UAC) surge, is at the crossroads of the...

    It’s a landmark ruling out of Miami, Florida that was handed down from a federal district judge. Cooperate with ICE… or you’re out of a job. There was a new Florida state law that put a ban on sanctuary cities. It also ordered law enforcement officers to continue full cooperation with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Miami U.S. District Court Judge Beth Bloom upheld a majority of the components of that law on Monday, just one day before SB 168 went into effect. On top of banning sanctuary cities in Florida, it also creates a new mandate. It requires...
  • DC City Council Introduces 'Emergency Legislation' To Ban Working With ICE

    Despite Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser declaring the nation's capital a "sanctuary city" for those who violate federal immigration law, one city councilman believes that additional legislation is needed to prevent Immigration and Customs Enforcement from removing illegal aliens from the city. WTOP reports that Ward Six Councilman Charles Allen has called for an emergency meeting this Tuesday to discuss a new bill that he says would stop all city agencies from cooperating with ICE unless given an explicit court order. This means that local police and other D.C. government officials would be barred from "sharing information with ICE, complying...

    In a weeklong sweep U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement took close to 1,300 illegal aliens into custody, many of whom were arrested in so-called sanctuary cities that harbor illegals and shield them from federal immigration enforcement efforts. Sanctuary jurisdictions defy U.S. law by, among other things, refusing to honor detainer requests in which ICE asks local jailers to notify the agency before an inmate wanted on immigration charges is released. A detainer request also asks the jailer to hold the individual for up to 48 hours after when the individual would otherwise be released so ICE can take him or...

At least two of these foreign nationals have been previously accused of unwanted touching and sexual assault with pending charges.

    A group of San Francisco neighbors came up with their own solution after they said the city wouldn't help them with the local homeless and drug dealer population, according to CNN affiliate KGO: They put boulders on the sidewalks. The group has been going to city meetings and filing reports with the city for six months, according to KGO, but they haven't had any luck. After a turf war one night, one of the residents told KGO the neighbors had had enough. "It got to the point where everybody was just done," the person told KGO. "People had knives and...

    President Trump traveled to North Carolina Monday to show support for the Republican in a special election for a House seat that’s viewed as a toss-up. “North Carolina, vote for Dan Bishop tomorrow. We need him badly in Washington! His opponent is a far left Sanctuary Cities supporter,” Trump tweeted about the GOP candidate, who will face Democrat Dan McCready at the polls Tuesday. Bishop, 55, a state senator since 2017, is a conservative and critic of LGBTQ rights who once compared gay rights activists to the Taliban, and spearheaded North Carolina’s so-called “bathroom bill,” which banned transgender people from...

    Democrats, who have called for the abolition of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency for months, screaming loudly about its raids on illegal immigrants, and demonizing its officers, suddenly don't have a lot to say about this one: WASHINGTON — U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested 39 fugitives – 30 males and nine females – sought for their roles in known or suspected human rights violations during a nationwide operation that took place from Aug. 27 to 29.

    The mainstream media conveniently manipulates the flow of information to keep with its liberal agenda and this week we have yet another example; widespread coverage involving the gruesome murder of a young Maryland man omits that most of the suspects are illegal immigrants affiliated with a violent criminal gang. The 21-year-old victim’s body was found at the end of July in Towson, a community of about 55,000 located roughly 11 miles north of Baltimore City. Police said the victim, Daniel Alejandro Cuellar, was found lying near an apartment building with “trauma to the body.” This week seven suspects were arrested...

    A California state appeals court Friday overturned the lone conviction against an undocumented immigrant who shot and killed Kate Steinle on the San Francisco waterfront in 2015, a case which drew national attention and became a flashpoint in the debate over illegal immigration. Jose Inez Garcia-Zarate, who was in the U.S. illegally had been deported to his native Mexico five times, was acquitted in November 2017 of first and second-degree murder, involuntary manslaughter, and assault with a semi-automatic weapon. He was convicted of one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm. On Friday, the 1st District Court...

    After a North Carolina sheriff released an illegal immigrant on bond in a child rape case, former acting ICE Director Tom Homan said the law enforcement officer should have called the federal government and had the suspect detained. The suspect was finally apprehended by federal authorities, two months after Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden ignored an ICE detainer order and released him from custody. "Mecklenburg County wants to be a sanctuary county. This sheriff has made a choice to stop being a cop and be a politician," Homan said on "Fox & Friends Weekend." Homan said this is a common...

    With the press idealizing every illegal immigrant, and sanctuary cities making sanctuary for illegals a higher priority than even the welfare of their own citizens, it hasn't taken long for Central American drug dealers to move in and have a field day. Want to know why San Francisco is such a filth-strewn place? Look no further than its imported drug problem, which seems to be especially beneficial to foreign drug dealers.  Here's one report about Honduran drug dealers benefiting immensely from San Francisco's sanctuary city politics: SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — The first step in a sweeping crackdown on crime ranging from drugs to sex...
