    If the U.S. court system doesn't interfere with White House policy, the Trump administration will expand on their current success and continue to make strides with immigration reform, said Ken Cuccinelli, acting director of the Citizenship and Immigration Services, on "Fox & Friends" Thursday

    A man facing eviction from his Northwest Side condo building went on a deadly rampage over the weekend, killing four people in a neighboring apartment as they sat down for dinner before hunting down another neighbor and shooting her in the back of the head as she fled, Cook County prosecutors alleged Monday. Police later found two chilling notes written in Polish in Krysztof Marek’s apartment in the Dunning neighborhood. “Tomorrow!! No Mercy Without any stupid hesitation!!!” prosecutors said one read in part. After prosecutors laid out the dramatic details Monday in the Leighton Criminal Court Building, Judge John Fitzgerald...

    Though they ‘love America,’ this couple has chosen to put their roots down in the coastal town of Denia in Spain. Call ‘em Texpats. Kevin and Susan Bryant, 55 and 48, spent most of their lives in Texas, recently in retiree hot spot Austin. But “when Austin became a mini Silicon Valley, we were priced out,” Kevin, a now-retired history teacher and principal, tells MarketWatch. History buff Kevin says he’d always wanted to live in Europe — “in a castle, specifically, but I let that part go,” he jokes — and began hunting for where the couple might retire on...

    Do border walls work? Based on the evidence at the new border wall in San Diego, they do. A year ago, the U.S.-Mexico border near San Diego was an easy spot for caravans to send migrants into the United States. Not so much anymore, according to a report from Fox News. A 14-mile long border wall in San Diego that replaced an old fence is already working wonders. “It's incredibly different...I’m able to see the old landing mat right next to the bollard and I'm able to see the old mesh right next to the new bollard and the...

    President Trump’s top immigration spokesman on Wednesday said that there are potentially 22 million illegal immigrants inside the United States, nearly twice the estimate regularly cited. Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, which handles the legal immigration process, said the number comes from a study done by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. That study put the number at 22.1 million.
  • Despite stricter scrutiny, US approves more H-1B visas this year

    Times Of india ^ | 14 October 2019 | Lubna Kably
    The US has approved a higher number of H-1B applications (both for initial visas and visa extensions for continued employment) this year, showing that the demand for these work visas continues unabated. This is a relief to Indians, who are the dominant holders of H-1B visas, especially after processing regulations got more stringent post-2015 . While in 2015, 288,000 applications were approved (95.7%) by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services , for fiscal 2019, the figure touched 389K (84.8%), up from last year's 335K (84.5%).

    But now, as more details emerge, things are looking increasingly strange. We’re still not sure what the entire story is, but the Connors are clearly more than they first appeared. For starters, they didn’t “accidentally take a wrong turn.” They were caught on video intentionally driving across a grassy strip between two roads, one on the Canadian side and one in the U.S. And things only got stranger from there. It turns out that the Connors had applied for a travel visa to come to the United States last year but they were denied. The reason for the denial wasn’t...

    Pedro Sanchez-Garay worked as an Uber driver in Southern California, but he got evicted from his apartment and the money wasn’t rolling in fast enough. So he figured he would broaden his pool of riders. He answered a request on social media for some off-the-books driving — of illegal immigrants. Instructions for each pickup were provided over WhatsApp, an encrypted messaging service run by Facebook. He was promised $1,000 a pop to pick them up just after they crossed the border and drive them north deeper into the interior. It’s the gig economy of the border, or as one observer...
  • Leading 2020 Dems Unified to Turn Red States Blue with More Immigration

    Breitbart ^ | 10/15/19 | John Binder
    Despite efforts to draw distinctions between each other, the leading 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidates are unified to bring more immigration, and thus more labor market competition for American workers, to the United States if elected. Though polling among all U.S. voters, and particularly with swing voters, finds campaigning for immigration, illegal and legal, is the most unpopular policy position, leading candidates like former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) have gone above and beyond past Democrat candidates in their vows to drive a large migration to the country.That increase in immigration would likely have significant consequences...

    Summary As presidential candidates debate whether illegal immigrants should receive government health benefits, it is important to understand how immigrants (both legal and illegal) currently benefit from Medicaid, the public healthcare program for the poor. Using data from the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey, this report finds that 42 percent of immigrant-headed families had at least one member who was enrolled in Medicaid during 2016, compared to 26 percent of native-headed families. The average immigrant family created $2,796 in Medicaid costs, compared to $1,983 for the average native family. Immigrants are costlier not because they have any special appetite for welfare,...

    "A man who criticized President Donald Trump’s immigration policies in the name of progressive Christianity was killed last week by an undocumented immigrant who avoided deportation by hiding in a local “sanctuary church.” Sean Buchanan, a father of five from Colorado Springs, was driving his motorcycle on Highway 83 when Miguel Ramirez Valiente swerved into his lane and killed him. The immigrant was charged with reckless driving with a revoked license. …When he killed Buchanan, Ramirez Valiente was driving with a suspended license thanks to a 2018 DUI. He was also arrested for reckless endangerment in 2011 and domestic violence...

    FULL TITLE: The First Illegal Alien To Commit A North American Terrorist Attack Is On Trial, But Don’t Expect The Media To Cover It Trump, after all the media ridicule, was correct in saying that potential terrorists have illegally crossed the United States' southern border. Abdulahi Hasan Sharif of Somalia did. And it could happen again. Many who have professionally worried, as did former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, that violent jihadists might illegally cross the United States’ southern border are often sanctimoniously challenged with this: “Name a single U.S. border-crossing immigrant asylum-seeker who ever committed a terrorist...

    Talk about disenfranchisement. In California, seems it's not enough that foreign nationals who've just spilled over the U.S. border from the south can get free education, free health care, free housing, and all that — now it looks as though locals may just find themselves lorded over by foreign nationals with zero loyalty to the United States making policy, now that Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed SB225, a bill to allow illegals to "serve" (and be paid) on state boards that make policy in California. If your interests conflict with theirs, too bad about yours: According to the San Francisco...

    A caravan of roughly 2,000 migrants bound for the United States early Saturday was halted by Mexican authorities only a few hours into their journey, according to officials. The caravan, which consisted of migrants from Africa, the Caribbean, and Central America, left before dawn from Tapachula, a town in southern Mexico near the Guatemalan border, Reuters reported. Many of the migrants who departed from Tapachula early in the morning had been held up there for weeks or months, awaiting residency or transit papers from Mexican authorities. About 24 miles into their journey, federal police and national guardsmen blocked their path....

    Who are they REALLY protecting here, law-abiding citizens, or those who would prey upon them? There is a reason the right needs to start talking about the bogus compassion of the Left on immigration issues. They deliberately misrepresent and distort one issue ‘separating children’ to drive a narrative, which could be resolved in a heartbeat by lawmakers disincentivizing illegal crossings. But rather than solve that issue, they are endangering untold numbers of law-abiding Americans, exposing them (due to ‘Sanctuary City’ policy) to the threats from the worst sort of criminals. Case in point, rather than executing the ICE detainer, these...

    A federal judge blocked a Trump administration rule just days before it was due to go into effect and make it harder for low-income migrants to obtain green cards, dealing a serious blow to the president’s immigration agenda. New York federal Judge George Daniels on Friday issued a preliminary injunction against the Trump administration’s “public charge” rule, which takes into account a foreign national’s use of government benefits when they apply to live in the U.S. on a more permanent standing. Daniels — who was appointed to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York by President...

    President Trump says the nation of Mexico is helping the United States more to stop illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border than elected Democrats. During a rally in Lake Charles, Louisiana on Friday night, Trump slammed Democrats for failing to work with his administration to stop illegal immigration, and he thanked Mexico for its cooperation and putting troops on the Mexican side of the border. Trump said: On issue after issue, Democrats have put the needs of foreign citizens ahead of our own citizens. We protect borders of other countries, but we don’t protect our own borders. But I...

    A federal judge ruled Friday that President Donald Trump violated federal law when he used his declaration of a national emergency to get millions for building a wall on the southern border, NBC News reports. The ruling is a victory for El Paso County, Texas, and the Border Network for Human Rights, which sued to stop border construction in their community. They argued that Trump had no legal authority to spend more than what Congress appropriated for the wall project. In January the president asked for $5.7 billion to build "a steel barrier for the Southwest border," but Congress approved...

    Issued on: October 11, 2019 It is extremely disappointing that yet another judicial ruling has blocked—on a nationwide basis—this Administration’s efforts to restore integrity to the immigration system, consistent with the plain meaning and clear intent of the law.  The public charge ground of inadmissibility has been a part of United States immigration law for more than 100 years, and is explicitly authorized by Section 212(a)(4) of the Immigration and Nationality Act.  Congress has also made clear that aliens should “not depend on public resources to meet their needs.”  But the rulings today prevent our Nation’s immigration officers from ensuring...
