  • Supreme Court Weighs Whether Encouraging Unlawful Immigration Is a Crime

    WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court on Tuesday seemed doubtful that a 1986 federal law that makes it a crime to “encourage” unauthorized immigrants to come to or stay in the United States could be squared with the First Amendment. “The statute isn’t aimed at speech,” said Eric J. Feigin, a lawyer for the federal government defending the law. But several justices appeared skeptical, saying that the ordinary meaning of the word “encourage” could subject countless people to criminal liability. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. asked about “a grandmother whose granddaughter is in the United States illegally.” Would it be...
  • Pope, Italian Prelates Tight-lipped on Role of Islam in Persecution Crisis

    Pope, Italian Prelates Tight-lipped on Role of Islam in Persecution Crisis "Don't mention the war," is one of those droll British witticisms. It refers to well-meaning people who don't want to offend. It originates from a classic episode of the much-loved British sitcom "Fawlty Towers." When a group of German tourists stay at his shambolic hotel, Basil Fawlty, the bungling hotel manager, keeps repeating the phrase to his staff while managing to be extremely rude to his shocked guests from Deutschland. Inebriated by his cognitive dissonance, Basil's insults culminate in a goose-stepping impersonation of Adolf Hitler.  Egyptian Christians are facing severe persecution At the Bari conference...

    Politicians in California value the lives of illegal immigrants, drug dealers, criminals and gang members above those of hard-working taxpayers. No wonder the middle class is leaving the state in droves. Sadly, California is choking on its own insanity. I know there are some good people in California! Make your case and vote them out. It’s not that hard. Liberals opening our doors to criminals are “chumming” for votes while taking all innocent citizens down the toilet with them. The sanctuary cities are a disgrace to the country! The full force of the DOJ should come down on them and...

    Our voting system is so wrong. Anybody can come in register and vote. Illegals walk in, give an electric bill for address, vote. The liberals want this kind of voting. So, so wrong! Last year GAI research director Eric Eggers reveals in his new book that nearly 250 counties across the United States have more registered voters on the voting rolls than the number of eligible, citizen voters. But this year Judicial Watch came back with more information and are ready to file lawsuits. In 378 U.S. counties, voter registration rates exceed 100% of the adult population, meaning there are...
  • ICE ignores California laws and arrests illegal aliens at the courthouse door

    American Thinker ^ | 02/24/2020 | Andrea Widburg
    In 2018, California implemented the California Values Act, which gave special protection to illegal aliens by mandating that California law enforcement agencies cannot cooperate with federal immigration authorities. Last week, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (“ICE”) thumbed its nose at California and arrested two people in Sonoma County Superior Court. California has lots of reasons to hang onto its roughly 2.2 – 3.5 million illegal immigrants. They provide cheap, easily-exploited labor. They swell the state’s population, which matters for electors and congresspeople, as well as the distribution of certain federal funds. As illegal immigrants are fed into the system, they provide...

    It’s midday in Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument. As the sun beats down, saguaro cacti throw little shade over this part of the Sonoran Desert, where summer temperatures regularly top 37°C (99°F). Today though a very narrow segment of the park is getting a little more shade. It’s accompanied by the incessant whine of construction vehicles. President Donald Trump’s major campaign promise is taking shape — a rusty, nine-meter tall mix of concrete and steel. As of January 31, 185 kilometers (115 miles) of new wall had been built, according to the US Customs and Border Protection Agency. Depending on...
  • Greyhound to stop allowing immigration checks on buses

    02/21/2020 8:25:26 PM PST · by fluorescence · 55 replies
    Greyhound, the nation’s largest bus company, said Friday it will stop allowing Border Patrol agents without a warrant to board its buses to conduct routine immigration checks. The company’s announcement came one week after The Associated Press reported on a leaked Border Patrol memo confirming that agents can’t board private buses without the consent of the bus company. Greyhound had previously insisted that even though it didn’t like the immigration checks, it had no choice under federal law but to allow them. In an emailed statement, the company said it would notify the Department of Homeland Security that it does...

    While some state and local law enforcement agencies push back against Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE), Acting ICE Director Matt Albence said on Friday that the greatest “misconception” is that so-called sanctuary states are forced to share information with federal authorities. “All we’re asking them for is information. Share that information so that we can go out and enforce the federal laws that we are sworn to uphold,” Albence said on “Fox & Friends.” Albence said that in Orange County, the recidivism rate is more than 20% for the criminal illegal immigrants that he’s had to release as a result...

    The entire border needs a wall. Without the entire border walled, the illegal invaders can come through the unwalled areas and, once here, have the freedom of movement throughout the rest of the lower 48 states. But also the detention centers are not something that solves the problems. The Democrats and the MSM have no shame. With every passing day, we see more and more evidence of their hypocrisy, intellectual dishonesty, and evil behavior. Remember when the liberal media shared a touching photo of the little girl Yanela Denise, crying as a U.S. Border Patrol agent patted down her mother....

    This is all you need to know about where the Dems stand today. They don’t have a single thought or care about law-abiding, hard-working citizens of the United States, they know they have lost that the majority of that vote. They only cater to their base that is anti-American patriotism, anti-Christian, anti 2A, anti-white, anti-traditional family, etc. Whichever of these morons win the nomination, they will have to pivot on this stuff and hope no one brings it up. To bad for them Trump doesn’t forget and he has an itchy Twitter finger to remind everyone. But sometimes the Dems...

    Border Patrol agents apprehended five migrants and an alleged American citizen human smuggler during an attempt to move the men into the U.S. interior. The bust occurred on the 'outskirts' of Tucson, Arizona. Agents conducted a traffic stop at the Tucson city limits .... As the agent approached the vehicle, he observed a person lying on the floor of the rear seats. The agent determined that person to be an illegal immigrant, according to Tucson Sector officials. The agent carried out a search of the vehicle and found four additional migrants packed inside the trunk. The agent arrested the driver,...

    The former South Bend Mayor told the illegal immigrant he viewed her as an American, despite her illegal status. “So, first of all, this should go without saying but it’s important to say out loud that I regard you and all DACA recipients as American as I am or anybody else is in this room,” he said. In December, Buttigieg also expressed his desire that he would open up taxpayer-funded healthcare to illegals during a conversation with a voter in Spanish. “So the most important thing for me is that we offer the opportunity for health care to all in...

    I will say, opposition to voter ID laws is strange. If the problem is that not everyone can afford an ID or has easy access to the DMV, states should work to ameliorate those issues. Free IDs for those who can’t afford one, full online registration. I say this because too many illegals end up voting in our elections. No debate on Election Security should go forward without first agreeing that Voter ID (Identification) must play a very strong part in any final agreement. Without Voter ID, it is all so meaningless! The democrats are getting ready for 2020 and...

    New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and President Trump will meet Thursday to discuss a potential compromise with the administration after the Department of Homeland Security banned New Yorkers from enrolling in Trusted Traveler Programs like Global Entry that allow expedited re-entry into the U.S. A White House official confirmed the planned meeting to Fox News. DHS Secretary Chad Wolf announced the ban last week, stating it was due to New York not allowing federal officials to access state Department of Motor Vehicle records to conduct background checks on applicants. The restriction is part of New York's recently passed "Green Light...

    New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo has "lost his mind" on immigration policy, retired U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Tom Homan said Friday. Appearing on "Fox & Friends: First," Homan said Cuomo is "spitting in the face of federal law." Last December, the controversial "Green Light Law" was passed by the Sanctuary State's Democratic Legislature and signed by Cuomo. Under the law, county and state motor vehicle departments may accept applications for licenses, regardless of immigration status. New York is just one of the 15 states and Washington D.C. which operates under similar laws. On Wednesday, Acting Homeland...

    Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is scheduled to meet with President Donald J. Trump at the White House on Tuesday afternoon to discuss a 2017 change in federal tax law that the governor contends has been devastating to New York and other "Democratic states." Last week, Cuomo had announced New York is facing an unexpected $2.3 billion shortfall — the most significant in eight years — that he attributed in large part to the federal rollback of the state and local tax deduction, known as SALT. Cuomo's administration contends that the $10,000 cap on federal tax deductions of state and local...

    “I’m calling their bluff,” Andrew Cuomo told WAMC this morning, but who’s blinking first? Usually it’s the one seeking the negotiation, and the New York governor had to request the meeting after the Department of Homeland Security cut off the state’s residents from its trusted traveler programs. DHS argued that a new law barring access to the state’s DMV records made it impossible to verify eligibility for New York residents, along with their decision to issue licenses and IDs to those already illegally in the US.CBS News reports that Cuomo remains defiant, saying that he will “never give them...
