  • Two illegal immigrants found in trunk of known smuggler's car

    The illegal immigrants, 28-year-old Alfredo Mondono-Fonseca and a 16-year-old Mexican citizen were attempting to cross the Falfurrias Checkpoint with two women and a child. Crystal Azua, her daughter and Erica Hernandez were inside the general area of the vehicle when they came to a stop at the checkpoint. A Border Patrol agent, checking the identities of the three visible passengers, recognized Azua for two previous immigrant smuggling convictions. Because he recognized her, the agent sent their car to the secondary inspection. That’s when agents discovered the 28-year-old and the 16-year-old in the trunk. Once inside for questioning, Azua admitted she...
  • Immigration fallout from saying no to 'Obamacare' (Brewer opts in for Medicaid expansion in Arizona)

    Immigration fallout from saying no to 'Obamacare' WASHINGTON (AP) — Governors who reject health insurance for the poor under the federal health care overhaul could wind up in a politically awkward position on immigration: A quirk in the law means some U.S. citizens would be forced to go without coverage, while legal immigrants residing in the same state could still get it. It's an unintended consequence of how last year's Supreme Court decision changed the Medicaid provisions of President Barack Obama's health care law. The overhaul expanded the federal-state program for low-income and disabled people. The Supreme Court made the...
  • Civil rights groups shift focus on SB 1070

    PHOENIX — Civil rights groups are dropping their bid to stop police from enforcing the "papers please” provision of SB 1070, at least for the time being. Linton Joaquin of the National Immigration Law Center said it makes little sense to spend time appealing last month’s order by U.S. District Court Judge Susan Bolton letting the law take effect. That followed a Supreme Court ruling in June saying there was no basis for her original 2010 injunction declaring the provision was pre-empted by federal law. And Bolton specifically denied a request by the civil rights groups for a new preliminary...

    It’s now up to the Florida Supreme court to decide whether undocumented immigrants are allowed to be lawyers in the state. Regan McCarthy reports the Florida Board of Bar Examiners is asking the Court for its opinion. Jose Godinez-Samperio came to the United States on a visitors’ visa with his family as a young boy. When the visas expired, the family stayed. He became an Eagle Scout and graduated top of his class from high school. Now, as a Florida State University law school graduate, he wants to be a lawyer, but there are questions about whether he can be...

    Glenn Spencer, president of the nonprofit border watch group American Border Patrol, is hopeful the state will pursue a new border security system, known as the Sonic Barrier, which can sense people, vehicles, aircraft and even tunneling within 200 yards of the U.S./Mexico border. On Thursday, Spencer appeared before the Arizona Senate’s Committee on Border Security, Federalism and States Sovereignty in Phoenix to present details on the system. He did so in his role as founder and president of Border Technology, an Arizona corporation. Components of the Sonic Barrier, including batteries, solar panels and analog/digital convertors, could be linked into...

    In an interview with Univision Radio, President Obama said that he has 'five years' left in his presidency to figure out issues like comprehensive immigration reform. Striking a confident note about his reelection prospects, Obama assured a largely Hispanic audience that he has not given up on getting an immigration bill done — one that would provide a pathway to citizenship. "My presidency is not over," Obama told Univision's Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo "I’ve got another five years coming up. We’re going to get this done." Obama also said that Hispanic voters would ultimately face an easy choice in deciding between...

    WESLACO - Three people from Afghanistan are in Border Patrol custody in the Valley. Border Patrol acknowledges they apprehended the three Afghanis in the Valley. They were found in two different groups. One was found south of Mission by the river. The other two were found in a stash house north of Moorefield Road. Samuel Freeman, a political science professor at the University of Texas Pan American and expert on U.S. foreign policy, says it's unusual for Afghanis to show up in the Rio Grande Valley. Freeman says the three could be drug runners. He says there's a huge pipeline...

    It wasn’t the first time her partner hit her, but in October 2010 Norma finally picked up the phone and dialed 911. Instead of getting the help she longed for, the undocumented San Francisco resident was taken into custody and detained under the federal government’s Secure Communities Program. . . . more than 30 San Francisco residents who came out to speak on behalf of a resolution initiated by District 1 Supervisor Eric Mar. It would discourage the San Francisco Sheriff’s Department and Juvenile Probation Department from using local funds to respond to Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainers.

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry has asked the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to reimburse the state $350 million to cover costs of imprisoning illegal immigrants. In a letter to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, the top-tier Republican presidential candidate blamed the federal government for not securing the border with Mexico, allowing illegal immigrants to cross over and use taxpayer-funded resources.

    ( - Richard M. Stana, director of homeland security and justice issues at the Government Accountability Office (which is responsible for “auditing agency operations to determine whether federal funds are being spent efficiently and effectively”), told the Senate Homeland Security Committee yesterday that the federal government can actually prevent or stop illegal entries into the United States along only 129 miles of the 1,954-mile-long U.S.-Mexico border. That leaves 1,825 miles of the U.S.-Mexico border where the Border Patrol cannot prevent or stop an illegal entry. Nonetheless, Stana told the committee, the Border Patrol itself says it has established “an acceptable...

When Officer Swanson stopped Merino De-Jesus on South Street for a traffic violation and he attempted to check his driver’s license, Merino De-Jesus was unable to show any identification, nor could his passenger, Sanchez. The U.S. Border Patrol responded to Geneseo and took custody of Merino De-Jesus and Sanchez. Both were transported to Rochester to await an immigration hearing. About two hours later on the same day Geneseo Police Officer Daniel Piedmonte arrested Abacuc Arguelles-Cordova,...

    Thousands of Hispanics rally Tuesday at the state capitol in protest of dozens of so-called "Anti-Immigration" bills. With song and signs, their message to lawmakers was loud. The massive group was made up of Hispanics from across the state and students from the University of Texas. They were there to protest bills filed mostly by Republican lawmakers. One would require teachers to report undocumented students, another bill cracks down on employers of illegal immigrants and then there's the controversial Arizona-style immigration law. "We do not want it in Pasadena. We don't want it in Houston, we don't want it any...

    PHOENIX — An organization that convinced federal judges last month to toss out Arizona’s proof-of—citizenship requirement to register to vote now is seeking a court order that could further delay a final outcome from Tuesday’s election. The Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund late Friday asked the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to order officials in the state’s 15 counties to count the votes of those who cast “provisional ballots” because they did not show up on the voter registration rolls. And the reason they didn’t show up on the rolls is because they didn’t get registered because they...
