  • ‘Backdoor Deal’ Allows ‘Illegal’ Immigrants to Enter US Legally, Border Patrol Union Leader Says

    Illegal immigrants are coached to voluntarily withdraw their asylum claims, return to Mexico, and then return to the United States on humanitarian grounds, according to a U.S. Border Patrol union leader. Manny Bayon, a National Border Patrol Council union spokesman in San Diego, told The Epoch Times on May 26 that migrants who enter the United States illegally in Yuma, Arizona, are being bused to the San Ysidro and Otay Mesa ports of entry in San Diego County. From there, he said, they are returned to Mexico but are allowed to re-enter the United States by applying for “humanitarian parole”...

    An Islamic extremist has been given 10 life sentences and another 260 years in prison for killing eight people with a truck on a bike path in Manhattan and severely injuring 18 others. Sayfullo Saipov remained remorseless Wednesday and said the tears of victims and family members in the courtroom were small compared to the blood and tears that those in the Islamic faith have suffered. 'I was here in the court during the three-month trial, and I saw and I heard the victims, families and friends,' he said through an interpreter before his sentencing. 'The court would be filled...

    A 12-year-old boy has been charged with murder for allegedly gunning down a Sonic restaurant worker in Texas with an assault rifle. The deadly confrontation at the Sonic Drive-In in Keene began after 32-year-old employee Mathew Davis spotted a 20-year-old man urinating in the parking lot Saturday night, NBC-DFW reported, citing police. Davis approached the man relieving himself, identified as Angel Gomez, and a physical fight ensued, the report said. During the scuffle, the 12-year-old boy who was sitting inside Gomez’s car allegedly fired six rounds from an assault rifle, striking Davis.

    Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that President Joe Biden had “led the greatest expansion of lawful pathways” for immigration asylum seekers. Mayorkas said, “So, the asylum system has been and continues to be a jewel of the United States. We take great pride as a country in this world to provide humanitarian relief for those who qualify. But the landscape of migration has changed dramatically over the past 10-plus years. No longer are individuals arriving at our border of their own volition. They are arriving in the hands of smugglers that...

    Broome County Executive Jason Garnar will announce an executive order meant to ban lodging establishments from accepting asylum seekers on behalf of New York City, WSKG has confirmed. The announcement will bring Broome County in line with other counties including Orange, Rockland and Rensselaer, in issuing orders meant to prevent New York City from signing contracts with hotels to house asylum seekers in recent days. This comes as the U.S. braces for a major wave of asylum seekers to enter the country, as the federal COVID-19 emergency expires at midnight Thursday, and with it, Title 42, a Trump-era policy allowing...

    A Republican border and immigration bill set to come to the House floor Thursday would represent one of the biggest clawbacks of asylum rights in decades if enacted, experts warn. The GOP is aiming to pass the bill May 11 — the same day President Biden is set to lift Title 42. It’s a move that will restore some access to asylum rights for the first time since the start of the pandemic, even as the administration rolls out new limitations on who and how people seek such protections.

    Untreated mental illness and 'prolific offenders' have left a rising number of Canadians fearing for their safetyViolent crime has technically been worse in Canada, but never quite like this. As recently as the early 1990s, the rate of knives and bullets being driven into Canadians was far higher than it is now. But amid a dramatic uptick in national violence are trends the country has never really seen before. Police officers are being shot and killed on duty at unprecedented rates. Record numbers of Canadians are being randomly attacked by people they’ve never met, for seemingly no reason. Just on...

    Introducing CNN This Morning's segment today on the 10th anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, co-host Poppy Harlow said: "This is a day to not forget. To never forget what happened." Except that CNN did "forget" to mention a central fact about "what happened" that day! The attack, which resulted in the deaths of five people and injured hundreds, was perpetrated by two Chechen jihadi terrorist brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Their family entered the United States on a tourist visa, was eventually granted asylum and received welfare benefits for many years. Ilhan Omar infamously described 9/11 as "some people...

    President Donald Trump introduced expedited screening while in CBP custody but his successor, Joe Biden, scrapped it his first week in office. Biden administration officials say the new attempt differs by ensuring access to legal counsel and requiring that screenings be done by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services asylum officers, not Border Patrol agents, as happened under Trump.

    Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has exclusively told that a new crackdown on evil grooming gangs that target children will put an end to political correctness getting in the way of keeping young girls safe. In a video filmed for the Express, Mr Sunak announced the new initiative will be the “most robust response to this issue any government has” ever taken. New rules will make it mandatory for perpetuators’ ethnicity data to be collected, "because political correctness should never get in the way of keeping young girls safe.” The Prime Minister says he wants to address the “very grave...

    @PippaCrerar Suella Braverman says authorities have to share blame for "wilful turning of the blind eye" to grooming gangs from Pakistani communities. "Some of these councils in Labour (left-wing) areas over a period of years absolutely failed to take action because of cultural sensitivities". Braverman suggested British Pakistani men held cultural values “totally at odds” with British values and regarded women in a “demeaning and illegitimate way” while behaving in an “outdated and frankly heinous” way.

    Political correctness must no longer prevent the police from using the ethnicity of suspects to identify grooming gangs, Rishi Sunak will say on Monday. Asian grooming gangs will no longer be allowed to “evade justice because of cultural sensitivities”, a government spokesperson said ahead of the unveiling of a package of measures designed to crack down on organised networks of abusers. The Prime Minister will order police forces to improve the recording and analysis of ethnicity data - including sharing information throughout the country - in an attempt to prevent perpetrators of abuse from falling through the net. Ministers are...

    A criminal inquiry has been opened after a French mayor had his house torched allegedly for his support for an asylum seeker reception centre. Yannick Morez - mayor of Saint-Brevin-Les-Pins, west of Nantes - said the attack on his home was “cowardly and unacceptable”. His property was damaged and two cars were destroyed in the blaze, which happened around 5 am on Wednesday (March 22). Mr Morez thanked neighbours for alerting him to the blaze, which he said had avoided “more dramatic consequences” for him and his wife. Sylvie Canovas-Lagarde, the prosecutor for Saint-Nazaire, said a criminal inquiry had been...
  • ‘The psychological stress is enormous’ – Diversity not a strength in Germany’s troubled school system

    “Twenty-three different nations meet in the schoolyard, some of whom cannot understand each other at all and who sometimes come from hostile regions, such as Russia and Ukraine. We need a lot of parent-teacher talks, which mostly take place with interpreters. And that brings us to one of the reasons why the teaching profession has become less and less attractive: The psychological stress is enormous and it has increased significantly,” said Grube. On top of that, there is a level of “brutalization” and disrespect directed at teachers that is impossible for many of them to deal with, which leads to...

    Senator Bob Menendez (D-NY) said Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that he has concerns President Joe Biden could become the “asylum denier-in-chief” if he restates a family detention policy. Menendez said, “The best part of the administration’s immigration policy over the first two years is that they ended family detention, which proved to be a failure under both the Obama and Trump administrations as a way to deter individuals from coming. What we need is a comprehensive plan to deal with the border.”

    Alma Ruth, founder, and director of Practice Mercy Foundation said that an estimated 5,000 Russians is waiting south of the Mexican border for their chance to cross over into the United States and claim asylum. Ruth said that in the Mexican town of Reynosa, for example, about 300 Russians are waiting to cross the Rio Grande River into South Texas. “It has slowly grown the amount of Russians that are coming to Mexico to request asylum due to the situation in the region,” Ruth said Wednesday at the foot of the McAllen-Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge.Most Russians who come to Mexico are...

    CNN — The Biden administration released a new rule Tuesday that largely bars migrants who traveled through other countries on their way to the US-Mexico border from applying for asylum in the United States, marking a departure from decadeslong protocol. The new 153-page proposed regulation, which could affect tens of thousands of people, is the most restrictive of a patchwork of policies put in place by the Biden administration to try and manage the US-Mexico border and is reminiscent of a Trump-era policy. The proposed rule would presume asylum ineligibility and “encourage migrants to avail themselves of lawful, safe, and...

    Leftism is at war with reality: women are men, men are the first female admirals and champion female swimmers, Old Joe Biden is competent, capable and coherent, drag queens are suitable entertainers for primary school children, and on and on and on. But every war has its casualties, as Leftists are learning these days at Free University in Berlin. A sex offender has been running wild and harassing women there for weeks, but the university has warned the victims not to call the police. The reason why they shouldn’t is as obvious as it is outrageous: the sex offender is...
