    A 21-year-old student from Rochester City School District has been arrested after she threatened to shoot up a school in Upstate New York. Rochester Deputy Mayor Dr. Cedric Alexander and Deputy Chief La'Ron Singletary spoke at a news conference Friday afternoon where they said Abigail Hernandez made a credible threat against East High School. Hernandez is not a student at East High School. Police were notified on February 16 by a member of staff after Hernandez wrote on Facebook 'I'm coming tomorrow morning and I'm going to shoot all of ya bitches,' according to WJLA. Apparently it took investigators days...

    As left-wing protesters gathered to rally against the government's planned deportation of illegal African job-seeking migrants, hundreds of residents from south Tel Aviv and activists from the grassroots Zionist organization Im Tirtzu staged a counter-demonstration in support of the deportation. The counter-demonstration was held in the memory of Esther Galili, a 70-year-old resident of southern Tel Aviv and a Holocaust survivor who was beaten to death by an illegal migrant exactly eight years ago on February 24, 2010. Activists held signs reading "Residents of South Tel Aviv also Deserve Human Rights" and "Illegal Migrants - not Refugees," and labelled the...

    Missouri has no illegal's; go figure... Shouldn't the other states do the same? Missouri's approach to the problem of illegal immigration appears to be more advanced, sophisticated, strict and effective than anything to date in Arizona . Does the White House appreciate what Missouri has done? So, why doesn't Missouri receive attention? Answer: There are no illegal's in Missouri to demonstrate. The "Show Me" state has again shown us how it should be done. There needs to be more publicity and exposure regarding what Missouri has done. Please pass this around. In 2007, Missouri placed on the ballot a proposed...
  • MS-13: Just Trump's Boogeyman?

    Donald Trump, well known for exaggeration and colorful language, could easily be dismissed when waving a finger at faceless ‘bad hombres’ coming across our southern border and insisting on construction of a “big, beautiful wall” to protect us.  His embellishments aside, it’s fair to question whether MS-13 is simply a Trump boogeyman, a gang hyped beyond its capability being worked as a clapper against the president’s bell of nationalism and anti-immigration fear-mongering.  Trump grabbed our attention during his State of the Union address by introducing four still-grieving parents painfully gripped by the murder of their daughters at MS-13 hands on Long Island....

The maximum sentence for unauthorised crossing of a border will be a year in prison and a fine of 3,750. . .

    President Donald Trump is considering pulling U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents out of California for protecting illegal immigrants. Frankly its a disgrace, the sanctuary city situation, Trump said at a White House meeting Thursday, according to The Hill. The president said that California has refused to cooperate with federal law enforcement since it declared itself a sanctuary jurisdiction. Trump added that if the federal agencies left the state, you would have a crime mess like youve never seen in California. If we ever pulled our ICE out, if we ever said, hey, let California alone, let them figure it...

    The United States is a nation of immigrants no longer, at least according to the mission statement for the federal agency that issues green cards and visas. The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services revised its mission statement Thursday to remove the phrase nation of immigrants, director L. Francis Cissna told staffers in a email. Heres the old mission statement: USCIS secures Americas promise as a nation of immigrants by providing accurate and useful information to our customers, granting immigration and citizenship benefits, promoting an awareness and understanding of citizenship, and ensuring the integrity of our immigration system. And the...

    Switzerland has been taken to task by the human rights group Amnesty International for its tough treatment of asylum seekers and migrants. The country was violating international legal principles by returning migrants and asylum seekers with rejected asylum claims to countries where they are in danger of persecution, Amnesty said in its annual report published on Thursday. The human rights group cited the examples of people with failed asylum claims or undocumented migrants being sent back to countries including Sri Lanka, Turkey and Sudan where they were at risk of serious human rights violations. In its report into the state...

    President Donald Trump said on Thursday that hes considering pulling Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers out of California. Why? Because he feels the state is giving his administration no help in targeting the violent MS-13 gang, especially in Los Angeles. Were getting no help from the state of California, Trump said from the White House. Frankly, if I wanted to pull our people from California you would have a crime nest like youve never seen in California. All Id have to do is say ICE and border patrol, let California learn. Trump made those remarks during a meeting at...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi suggested this week that mowing the grass near the U.S.-Mexico border so that illegal immigrants cant be smuggled through thick vegetation would be a more effective measure to secure the country than President Trumps proposed border wall. Im not the walls biggest advocate in Congress, Mrs. Pelosi said in an interview with The Arizona Republic. But I do know that representatives in the House and senators in that body from the border areas have some serious objection to a wall, because they know how detrimental it can be to the community trade, to all the...

    A 26-year-old man who is in the country without documentation is accused of lewd and lascivious battery of a teenager, according to the Fellsmere Police Department.

They said they began their investigation after parents of the alleged victim reported a relationship between the pair on February 14. Police said Alberto-Ramos had two sexual encounters with the alleged victim. He also told the alleged victim to "keep it a secret" because of the difference in their ages, police said. Police said there is the possibility that the suspect may have...

    It was a tally so impressive that President Donald Trump touted it at his State of the Union address: Since May, agents cracking down on the violent gangs terrorizing the working-class suburbs of Long Island had swept up 428 gang suspects, including 220 members of the notorious MS-13. But the sweep, Operation Matador, also has been shrouded in secrecy. Federal and state authorities have declined repeated requests from The Associated Press for even basic information made public in most law enforcement operations, such as the names of those arrested and the crimes they are accused of committing.

    The federal government began work Wednesday on replacing border wall in California, the first wall contract awarded in the Trump administration outside of eight prototypes that were built last year in San Diego. Customs and Border Protection is replacing a little more than 2 miles (3.2 kilometers) in downtown Calexico, a sliver of the president's plan for a "big, beautiful wall" with Mexico. A barrier built in the 1990s from recycled metal scraps and landing mat will be torn down for bollard-style barriers that are 30 feet (9.1 meters) high, significantly taller than existing walls.

    New Jersey saw one of the nation's biggest surges in arrests by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents last year as the federal government cracked down on unauthorized immigrants during President Donald Trump's first year in office. There were 3,189 arrests in fiscal year 2017 in ICE's Newark region, which encompasses all of New Jersey, according to data released by the agency. That is a 42 percent increase compared to the previous year. New Jersey's increase was among the highest in the nation, according to an analysis by the Pew Research Center, a nonpartisan demographic research group. Nationwide, ICE...

    The parents of first lady Melania Trump have become legal permanent residents of the United States and are close to obtaining their citizenship, according to people familiar with their status, but their attorney declined to say how or when the couple gained their green cards. Immigration experts said Viktor and Amalija Knavs very likely relied on a family reunification process that President Trump has derided as chain migration and proposed ending in such cases. The Knavses, formerly of Slovenia, are living in the country on green cards, according to Michael Wildes, a New York-based immigration attorney who represents the first...

    CALEXICO, Calif. Construction for a border wall replacement near downtown Calexico began today. The area of the border wall replacement will be an approximately 2.25-mile section replaced with 30-foot high bollard style wall. The project covers an area from approximately the Calexico West Port of Entry extending westward beyond the Gran Plaza Outlets. The project also includes around 2.25 miles of all-weather roads. The El Centro Sector wall replacement is one of Border Patrols highest priority projects
