    The Black Lives Matter movement (BLM) casts itself as a spontaneous uprising born of inner city frustration, but is, in fact, the latest and most dangerous face of a web of well-funded communist/socialist organizations that have been agitating against America for decades. The Black Lives Matter movement claims that only whites can be racists. And while justifying violence to achieve “social justice,” the movement’s goal is to overthrow our society to replace it with a Marxist one. Many members of the black community would be shocked to learn that the intellectual godfathers of this movement are mostly white Communists, “queers”...

    If you were shocked by the images of the Mexican flag flying over an Aurora, Colorado, immigration detention center this weekend, you'll be appalled at an even more disgusting spectacle: One of the top promoters of the so-called Lights for Liberty nationwide protests by Trump-hating, ICE-bashing radicals was a nonprofit religious organization known as the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. As a designated "host," LIRS played a key role in publicizing, organizing and participating in demonstrations against President Donald Trump's deportation enforcement actions targeting some 2,000 illegal immigrants and their families who have ignored removal orders or skipped out on...
  • EXCLUSIVE - James Comey visits The New York Times building [tr]

    Former FBI director James Comey made a quiet visit to The New York Times building on Thursday, one of few public outings since he admitted leaking stories to the newspaper about President Trump before the Senate Intelligence Committee on June 8. Comey kept his sunglasses on and his gaze forward as he marched through the front entrance of the Times Square office building which houses the publication. He was accompanied by his wife Patrice Failor who also wore sunglasses. Unmistakable as he towered over the crowds in a crisp navy suit and tie on one of the warmest days of...

    An immigration rights activist whose own undocumented status was exposed by a drunken-driving arrest has lost her six-month legal battle to remain in the country. Wendy Uruchi Contreras, a Virginia organizer for the immigrant rights group CASA, is scheduled to be deported to Spain this week after last-ditch appeals were denied by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials, according to her husband, Giovani Jimenez. “We are devastated,” said Jimenez, who lives in Fredericksburg, Va., with their American-born children, Alex, 13, and Lucia, 7. “My children are crying, but we know there’s nothing more we can do.”

There, his amazing intuition to human nature was nurtured and he learned the many commands and behaviors that would allow him to excel in his work. He began his work serving Lea County in January 2010. Cooper faithfully served the children of Lea County...

    After years of fighting for justice for immigrant families, we are on the verge of achieving real relief. With a do-nothing Congress frittering away legislative reform, President Obama has publically promised to adopt aggressive administrative relief early in September. The question now is how much for how many. Immigrants have suffered at historic levels under his administration and President Obama needs to go big in order to restore sanity to the lives of families. We believe that we must return to the White House to make one final big push to dramatize exactly how far relief needs to go. President...
  • 'Sicilian Space Program' Launches Cannolo Into Stratosphere

    Sicilian amateur scientists have launched a model cannolo, a cream-stuffed pastry roll symbolic of the Italian island, into the stratosphere, capturing bizarre images of the dessert flying far above the earth. The 'Sicilian Space Program', which cost a rough total of 350 euros, had symbolic importance as well as being a scientific feat, the three natives of the island town of Enna behind it told Reuters. "Sicily has always been a place of negative connotations, mafia and unemployment. We wanted to lift up Sicily in our own way," said filmmaker Fabio Leone, 34, who recorded the project with Antonella Barbera,...

    President Obama’s labor-secretary nominee Tom Perez has a long association with CASA of Maryland, a group that serves immigrants and runs day-laborer centers. Perez was on CASA’s board from 1995 to 2002, and while it doesn’t appear he’s had any official ties since then, as a Montgomery County Council member Perez promoted a day-laborer site that was ultimately run by CASA. An example of CASA’s attention to illegal immigrants can be found in a booklet that was updated in 2008. The booklet, which can be viewed on CASA’s website here,

They owned 163,828 houses at the end of March, a virtual city with more houses than Seattle.

  • 2 Bodies Found in Pinal County Desert (AZ ILLEGAL BORDER CROSSING)

    CASA GRANDE - Pinal County officials have found two dead bodies in the desert off I-8 and milepost 150, not far from where a deputy was shot and injured in April.

About an hour later, officials found the victims, dead. Two weapons, one an automatic rifle, were found nearby.

    Maryland's largest immigrant advocacy group is training supporters to keep close watch on the members of an illegal-alien watchdog group as they monitor day laborers. CASA of Maryland and the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland have offered four training sessions for legal observers who would videotape and document interactions between the Maryland Minutemen and day laborers seeking work. About 70 people, many of them law students, have attended the training sessions, organizers say. "Both groups have the constitutional right to public right of ways and to free speech," CASA staff attorney Steve Smitson told about 20 people Wednesday at...

    Immigration advocates on Capitol Hill yesterday called for an end to proposed restrictions and announced plans for a national day of protest. "We are not going to stand by while Congress tries to change the very structure of our nation by trying to pass laws that relegate immigrants to a perennial underclass," said Linda Chavez-Thompson, AFL-CIO executive vice president. Mrs. Chavez-Thompson was joined by union leaders, dozens of families and other immigration-advocacy groups, including CASA of Maryland, the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights and the National Council of La Raza.

    While the ink has hardly set on the U.S. Supreme Court's controversial 5-4 ruling in the Kelo vs. New London case, a move is underway to urge Congress to pass a constitutional amendment affording greater protection to property owners from unwanted government intervention for the promotion of economic development. Rep. David Floyd, R-Bardstown, has signed on for a resolution that has made its rounds among Kentucky House minority members. Have the Supremes finally flipped their judicial wigs? Here is some background as well as some key language, from the majority as well as the dissent sides: The Connecticut Supreme Court's...

    <p>An outside auditing firm this week gave a highly questionable retirement deal the kind of tough scrutiny it ought to have received three years ago from the elected Sacramento City Unified School District trustees. If the trustees who approved the deal had been more vigilant at the time the California Administrative Services Authority (CASA) was formed, the glaring problems raised in the audit -- self-dealing and apparent conflict of interest by district administrators; potential fiscal liabilities for a district that can't afford to squander money -- this dubious scheme might never have taken flight at all. The trustees' best move now is to undo this pungent mess before it does greater financial or legal damage to the district.</p>
