    Yes, we could be in for a worse case scenario regarding what may happen at the border and there onward. Can you just imagine if,lets say about 500,000 South Americans make their way into Southern California over a three to four week period. Anyone living in at least Los Angeles county must be in fear. Remember what we saw in the Santa Monica riots? Could something like this happen again? And what about Wal Marts and Targets? They have not brought this up in cable news yet, but god forbid this next invasion has a field day with much of...

Today on CNN, they had video of an unidentified “migrant from Honduras” talking about why he’s coming to the United States as part of “the caravan.” You know, the Biden campaign, the Biden team, the Biden whatever has told these guys, “No, no, no, no! “You don’t come now. You’re not gonna come here. You’re just gonna embarrass us. You can’t come now. You gotta say where you are. We’ll give you the go signal, but it’s not now! It’s not now. You can’t come now.”...

    WASHINGTON - President-elect Joe Biden plans to unveil a sweeping immigration bill on Day One of his administration, hoping to provide an eight-year path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people living in the U.S. without legal status, a massive reversal from the Trump administration’s harsh immigration policies. It provides one of the fastest pathways to citizenship for those living without legal status of any measure in recent years, but it fails to include the traditional trade-off of enhanced border security favored by many Republicans, putting passage in a narrowly divided Congress in doubt. Expected to run hundreds of...
  • Biden must end Trump's 'shameful' Central America asylum deals: report

    Washington (AFP) - US President-elect Joe Biden should immediately revoke deals the Trump administration struck with Central American countries on the handling of asylum seekers, a report published Monday by Democratic senators said. In 2019, the US signed Asylum Cooperation Agreements (ACAs) with the members of the so-called Northern Triangle of Central America -- El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala -- as part of its policy to stem the flow of undocumented immigrants across its southern border. The ACAs allow foreign migrants who request asylum at the US border -- the majority fleeing violence and poverty -- to be sent to...

    This past August, on the second night of the virtual RNC, it was inspiring to see the secretary of Homeland Security swear in five new American citizens and each new citizen then recognized by President Trump. The process of obtaining American citizenship was educational. Nevertheless, the Democrats under Joe Biden seek to enable everybody who crosses our borders to do so easily, without penalty, and to quickly be given an array of benefits.Serving Citizens Comes FirstIt’s admirable when legal immigrants from other cultures influence the existing U.S. citizenry in positive ways. Concurrently, the "nation of immigrants" or "xenophobia" arguments used...

    SAN DIEGO - President-elect Joe Biden’s decision to immediately ask Congress to offer legal status to an estimated 11 million people in the country has surprised advocates given how the issue has long divided Democrats and Republicans, even within their own parties. Biden will announce legislation his first day in office to provide a path to citizenship for millions of immigrants in the United States illegally, according to four people briefed on his plans. Biden’s plan is the polar opposite of Donald Trump, whose successful 2016 presidential campaign rested in part on curbing or stopping illegal immigration. “This really does...

Thousands of people are joining the US-bound groups to flee a life of poverty and violence. Two devastating hurricanes struck the region late last year, exacerbating the economic strain caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

    El Florido (Guatemala) - At least 4,500 Honduran migrants pushed past police and crossed into Guatemala Friday night, passing the first hurdle of a journey north they hope will take them to a better life in the United States. Seeking to escape poverty, unemployment, gang and drug violence and the aftermath of two devastating hurricanes, the migrants plan to walk thousands of kilometers through Central America to Mexico and then on to the US. The crowd of men, women and children -- many wearing masks due to the Covid-19 pandemic -- pushed their way past police and border gates diving...

    TEGUCIGALPA - Hundreds of Central Americans camped overnight outside the bus terminal in the city of San Pedro Sula, Honduras, anxiously awaiting the departure early Friday morning of a migrant caravan hoping to reach the United States. Local television footage showed an increasing number of families, many carrying young children, gathering throughout the evening on Thursday, despite Central American authorities deploying soldiers to regional borders to deter migrants from crossing. This week’s caravan will be the first of the year and comes less than a week before U.S. President-elect Joe Biden takes office. Biden has promised a more humane approach...

    SAN PEDRO SULA, Honduras -- About 200 migrants began walking up a highway toward the border with Guatemala late Wednesday, two days before a migrant caravan was scheduled to depart San Pedro Sula. Some 75 police officers dressed in riot gear waited at a point farther along the highway on the outskirts of San Pedro Sula. One officer said the intention was to stop the migrants for violating a pandemic-related curfew, check their documents and make sure they weren't traveling with children that were not their own. For weeks, a call for a new caravan departing Jan. 15 has circulated...

    OAKLAND, Calif. - Alphabet Inc’s Google said it would support President-elect Joe Biden’s efforts to pass a new U.S. immigration law and would help cover application fees for immigrants seeking lawful work under a threatened government program. Google said on Wednesday it would pay for the application fees of about 500 young immigrants seeking employment under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. It comes as Google and other big U.S. employers transition from four years of criticizing outgoing President Donald Trump for restricting immigration policy and undermining the companies’ ability to hire foreign-born workers. “We will support efforts by...

    President-Elect Joe Biden said he will ensure there is a “thorough investigation” by the Justice Department into officials of President Donald Trump’s administration who crafted and carried out the “Zero Tolerance” policy at the United States-Mexico border to deter illegal immigration. During a press conference on January 8, Biden committed to having the Justice Department open an investigation into Trump officials who carried out the Zero Tolerance policy through which adult border crossers entered separate custody from the children they arrived at the southern border with. The practice, as Breitbart News noted, has been employed since before 2001, though the...

    President-elect Joe Biden sparked outrage among activists when, a month before Inauguration Day, he retreated from his promise to unravel President Trump’s restrictive immigration regime on Day One. Instead, he suggested, the Biden administration would undo Trump’s actions over a period of months, thus avoiding a rush of “2 million people on our border” and the ensuing chaos in the opening days of his presidency. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) statistics show that apprehensions at the southern border were at an eight-year high in October and November; December data will likely reflect similar activity. A new wave of migrant...

I was in tears. I was in denial.” Out of work, her family’s...
