    The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency deported more than 185,000 illegal aliens in Fiscal Year 2020 including more than 4,200 gang members, despite operational disruption caused by the Chinese coronavirus crisis. Between October 1, 2019 and September 30, 2020, ICE agents deported 185,884 illegal aliens from the United States. About 64 percent of those deported, 118,949 illegal aliens, had criminal convictions or pending criminal charges against them. Nearly 14,500 illegal aliens deported were family units while a little more than 4,000 were Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs). The overwhelming majority, 92 percent, of illegal aliens deported from the interior of...

    Donald Trump famously sought the presidency in 2016 on a platform that elevated the immigration issue to the singular political forefront. He was right to do so. There is a very strong case that immigration, both legal and illegal, represents the indispensable issue facing the United States. No other political issue so broadly affects virtually every other -- whether it is economics, national security, foreign policy, culture and religion, crime and law and order, or congressional apportionment -- as that most foundational issue of any legitimate self-governing politics: who we quite literally are, as a polity and a citizenry. For...

    The ATF isn’t all bad. In fact, they had a policy of letting illegal gun purchases go between 2006 and 2011. It ended up getting U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry killed on December 14, 2010, and let Mexican criminals get enough guns that they were found at over 150 crime scenes where Mexican citizens were either killed or maimed. And some of the guns were used in the November 2015 terrorist attack in Paris at the Bataclan. But other than that, it turned out just fine. (In case you’re not picking up on it, we’re laying on the sarcasm...
  • Sidney Powell's code-named election fraud witness never worked in military intelligence like filings claim: Report

    Sidney Powell said her secret witness who can prove the election was stolen from President Trump was a former military intelligence official in court filings, but that's apparently inaccurate. Powell, a former federal prosecutor, has told the courts she wants to seal "Spider's" identity (sometimes referred to as "Spyder"), whom she said was an electronic intelligence analyst for the Arizona-based 305th Military Intelligence Battalion. "Spider," however, never completed the entry-level training course, said Meredith Mingledorff, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Army Intelligence Center of Excellence, the Washington Post reported. Even with her request to hide her witness's name, one of...

The total value of the vehicles was $4,876,000. 37 of the vehicles were stolen from Maryland. 16 others were stolen from Virginia. Nationally, the Office of Field Operations recovered 1,082 stolen vehicles, of which 833 were destined overseas. Most of the vehicles were...

  • Restricting Immigration Makes Americans Richer, Not Poorer

    Over the summer, President Trump suspended many guest-worker visas for the duration of 2020. Business groups like the Chamber of Commerce howled in outrage. Immigration and guest-worker programs grow the economy, they claim -- so by cutting off the flow of roughly 500,000 guest workers this year, President Trump is impeding the economic recovery and hurting Americans. This is at odds with reality. Restricting the influx of foreign workers makes Americans better off, especially during times of high unemployment. On the most elementary level, it's true that immigration grows the economy -- but only because it increases the total population....
  • ICE Says Federal Judge Forced Release of 250 ‘Dangerous’ Detainees

    A U.S. district judge’s order mandating a reduction of the detainee population at an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) processing facility in Adelanto, California, has led to the release of more than 250 “dangerous criminal aliens into various communities,” the agency announced on Oct. 27. Despite requests to transfer detainees to alternative sites, “ICE has complied with this overreaching court order; however, the public should know that the ruling undoubtedly places them at greater risk,” Tony H. Pham, ICE’s senior official performing the duties of the director, said in a statement. U.S. District Court Judge Terry Hatter’s ruling on the...

    In yet another story showing how much the open borders crowd cares about the safety of American citizens, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently announced that they released 250 immigrants with violent criminal histories into the general public. That’s right, dear reader. Hundreds of violent criminals are now walking free amongst the citizens of Southern California. ICE’s announcement came one week after U.S. Judge Terry Hatter demanded that the agency either release or deport detainees as the Adelanto processing center to block to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 infections. The agency stated that “despite requests to transfer detainees to...

Gavin Newsom (D) to grant mass clemency to inmates in response to surging rates of COVID-19 infections in prisons around the country. A press release from the California Liberation Collective indicated that protesters gathered in 30 separate locations outside of various state detention facilities including California State Prison Solano and San Quentin State Prison, where activists displayed banners referring to the facilities as Newsom's "COVID death camp[s]."

    The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) put out a statement updating America on the construction of the border wall, reporting it is being built at about “10 miles per week.” The statement, issued Tuesday, claims the Trump administration “is building (a) new wall and doing so faster than ever before.” “Now construction is moving at a rate of approximately 10 miles per week, setting the administration up to complete its year-end goal with time to spare,” it reads. That year-end goal constitutes a 450-mile section at “some of the highest-trafficking and therefore most critical sectors of the southern border for...

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operations will be in California, Denver and Philadelphia, and could potentially include other cities and jurisdictions across the country.

    While California courts delay his trial on triple manslaughter and felony DUI charges. Last week, U.S. District Judge Morrison C. England sentenced Ismael Huazo-Jardinez to 15 months in prison for “possessing a firearm while being an alien unlawfully in the United States.” As U.S. Attorney McGregor Scott explained, “Huazo-Jardinez is a citizen and national of Mexico who has twice been removed from the United States and has not been granted permission to return. As an alien unlawfully in the United States, Huazo-Jardinez is prohibited by federal statute from possessing a firearm.” The prison-bound Mexican, as it happens, has yet to face trial...

    The Trump administration is preparing a series of immigration enforcement actions targeting sanctuary cities leading up to the November general election, sources told the Washington Post on Tuesday. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) operation is known informally as the “sanctuary op” and could reportedly begin as soon as this week in California and eventually move to cities including Denver and Philadelphia. So-called sanctuary cities have policies in place the extent to which local law enforcement cooperate with federal immigration officials. The president and other Republicans have strongly criticized those cities and their often Democratic mayors. Acting Secretary of the...

    by Joe Callen Federal agents say they finally have caught an illegal alien they’ve been after for several years but who was released 10 times by New York City authorities under Mayor Bill DeBlasio's radical sanctuary city policies. Jhonny Soto-Ubaldo was arrested on federal gun charges this month, giving U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement a new chance to place a detainer on him requesting he be turned over for deportation after his time in the federal prison system is over. And this time it will be honored, since New York is out of the picture, thanks to the President. Federal agents were emboldened...

    The United Methodist Church is calling on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to release an undocumented immigrant and father of two U.S. citizens they say was detained on church grounds in a Maryland suburb of Washington, D.C., on Sept. 10. Binsar Siahaan moved to the U.S. from Indonesia in 1989 on a temporary visa. Soon after, his wife, Eko Sukemi, moved to be with him but both overstayed their visas when they expired a few years later. In 2003 the couple applied for asylum on religious grounds, according to The Washington Post, but two years later an immigration judge ordered...
