Hurts American Workers. Consider that more than 45 million legal immigrants currently reside in America.
On top of this there are at least another 20 million illegal migrants. And yet, American wages are actually lower
than they were in 1973. If immigration is so good for American workers, then why did wages stagnate when the era of mass
migration began? Why do we see wages rise after crackdowns on illegal aliens and "temporary" foreign workers time and time
again? Why is California — an immigrant magnet — America's poorest state, "home" to 170,000 homeless
Americans who are the victims of an income distribution more inequitable than Guatemala's? Contrast this with Japan.
Since 1980, Japan's GDP growth per capita has actually outpaced America's — despite the fact that Japan has next to
no immigration. How is it possible that Japan has prospered without benefiting from the "economic rocket fuel" that
is mass immigration? Could it be that the libertarians are wrong?
we became the world's suckers on immigration. The United States is one of only two developed countries in the
world (the other is Canada, and even it has some restrictions we don't have) with full "birthright citizenship," meaning that
any child born when his mother was physically present within the geographical borders of the U.S. automatically gets a U.S.
birth certificate and a Social Security card. That means legal immigrants, pregnant women sneaking in on tourist visas,
travelers on a three-week vacation, cheap foreign workers on "temporary" visas and, in some cases, foreign diplomats.
And that's not all. We're the only country but two that confers automatic citizenship on children born to illegal
aliens, or "anchor babies." This is not "birthright citizenship," which refers to children born to legal immigrants.
Immigration: The Path
To Power. MIT says our illegal immigrant population is about 22 million. Yale says it is between 16 and
30 million. The 11 million figure so popular in the media is ridiculous and a total lie. The
Democrat leadership desperately needs new Democrats to fill the empty space left by former middle-class Democrats they have
long abandoned. This is not about some new healthcare program or race relations or whatever. They could not care
less. It is about power. Every Democrat presidential candidate is united on this.
is not a racist; he's pushing the Overton window to normal. It was not so long ago that we expected people who came to
America as immigrants to (a) recognize that they were invited guests, rather than entitled squatters; and (b) not to
bad mouth their new country. I know what I'm talking about, for I grew up in a world of immigrants. Not only did my
parents come from another country, so did all of their friends, as well as the parents of my own friends. All of these
immigrants, without exception, came here legally with some, such as my father, a Polish citizen, waiting years before they were
allowed in thanks to national quotas. All of these immigrants, without exception, either had to bring money with them or
have someone sponsor them so that they did not become a charge on the public. And all of these immigrants, without exception,
worked hard. Some made it financially; some, like my father, never did. But all of them recognized that their being in
America was a rare privilege.
the Radical Squad. The founding fathers were not against immigration per se. Neither is President
Trump. However, the founding fathers, like President Trump, believe that immigrants who are admitted to this country
should serve the interests of American citizens, not the other way around. [...] The Democrat Party is becoming the party of
open borders, led by the four radical congresswomen who do not want any enforcement of our nation's immigration laws,
let alone the closing of any loopholes.
look at all of Trump's enemies: [#1] The Democratic Party. The sanctuary party is blocking urgent legislative
immigration reform. Democrats' top priority is to flood the U.S. with millions of illegals, and then, one day, when
they control Congress and the White House, declare them all voting citizens. Using the chain migration laws, if each
immigrant sponsors ten relatives to be admitted, 30 million illegals legalized yields 300 million new American
voters. In the meantime, they intend to nibble around the fringes with assorted voting frauds like DMV and same-day
voter registration, liberal mail-in voting, and ballot-harvesting. Importing a new dependent underclass is part of
the Democrats' new DNA. Any attempt at integrity of the ballot is vilified. Any legislative effort to reform
immigration is a call to arms for the Left. They even scoff at describing the horde of invaders as a "crisis."
folly of free healthcare for everybody in the world. "Mexican immigration over the border is a good thing," the
late Nobel Prize winning economist Milton Friedman said in a famous 1978 lecture, before stipulating, "but it's only good so
long as it's illegal." Friedman, a libertarian icon and champion of the economic benefits of free immigration, had very
little in common with today's Trumpists on this issue. But he explained a paradox of illegal immigration this way:
"as long as it's illegal the people who come in do not qualify for welfare, they don't qualify for Social Security, they
don't qualify for all the other myriads of benefits that we pour out from our left pocket into our right pocket, and so, as
long as they don't qualify, they migrate to jobs. They take jobs that most residents of this country are unwilling to
take, they provide employers with workers of a kind they cannot get — they're hard workers, they're good
workers — and they are clearly better off."
be a nation of laws, we must enforce those laws. The Left constantly argues that illegal aliens are Americans
who simply haven't received the proper paperwork. But we expect Americans to obey the law, and particularly to conform
to judicial orders. In fact, we impose fines, sanctions, and even jail time when people fail to follow court-issued
orders. Americans even expect the president to comply with judicial orders. After all, they are orders and not
requests. Right now, we have 1 million individuals illegally in America who have been told by a judicial officer, "you
must leave our country," but they refuse to leave. That means that, not just by virtue of legal process or by entering
or remaining in the country illegally, these people do not share American values. These illegal aliens are thumbing
their nose at the underpinnings of America's unique greatness: All of us are equal before the law.
Ingraham Understands the End Goal of Mass Migration. On a podcast episode, she claims that Democrats "value the
benefits that illegal immigrants will get over the value of a sovereign and independent and free nation, that is well within
its sovereign right to enforce her borders." Ingraham also noted that Democrats would always retort that "We're for
legal immigration." But now with how entrenched mass migration has become, she understands what is truly at play. No,
you're for replacing the current American population, or swamping the current American population, with a new population of
people who are perhaps more hospitable to socialist ideals.
Don't Have to Support Open Borders. There is no doubt that Christians must have a special concern for the
plight of refugees — those who are forced from their homes either because of natural disasters or man-made
calamities; indeed, that is a constant teaching of the Catholic Church. Even refugees, however, do not have an
unqualified right of entry; their entry claims must always be weighed against our duty to accept them. The test is
whether their entry benefits and is in the interest of American citizens. We can think of a sliding scale that presents
a different moral calculation depending on the classification of those who seek entry: refugees, criminals, and economic
migrants. As we've seen, on one end of the spectrum are refugees. But even they do not have a presumptive right
of entry, though they certainly have a very strong claim. The easiest case involves criminals and others who wish to
strike at the heart of civil society — whether they plan to do it at the border or are likely to become involved
in such destabilizing activity after they're admitted. These persons can be excluded categorically; their interests
weigh not at all on the scale, and the United States is not in any way obligated to admit them.
isn't the answer. With the news full of reports about more caravans headed for the border and immigration
agents overwhelmed by surging numbers of migrants seeking asylum, it may seem like an odd time for our leaders in Washington
to be proposing amnesty. Yet that's what happened recently, as speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi proudly announced a
proposal that would allow more than 2 million aliens to apply for U.S. citizenship. Contrast this overture against
President Trump's immigration agenda — a robust physical barrier, asylum reform, and an end to catch-and-release,
among others — and it's clear that America is at a crossroads with not only our immigration policy, but our
long-range direction as a nation. An apolitical assessment of the situation would raise a simple question: what is
truly in the best long-term interests of the country? When viewed through that prism, it is crystal-clear that more
amnesty is not the answer.
to U.S. Taxpayers $5.3 Billion: 429,000 Annual Immigrant Birth Costs. Hidden in every federal budget, and
unknown to 99 percent of Americans, your two U.S. Senators and House member use your money to pay for millions of legal and
illegal immigrants flooding into America annually. [...]
• [L]egal immigrants accounted for 12.4 percent
(494,000) of all births annually and illegal immigrants accounted for 7.5 percent (297,000) annually.
• The 297,000 births per year to illegal immigrants are more than the total number of births to all mothers in
any state except California and Texas. They are also more than the total number of births in 16 states combined, plus
the District of Columbia.
• The estimated 28,000 births to illegal immigrants in just the Los Angles
metro area are more than the total number of births in any of 14 states or the District of Columbia.
More than half (54 percent) of births to immigrants (legal and illegal) are entirely or largely paid for by taxpayers
because the mother is on Medicaid or uninsured.
• Illegal immigrants account for 11 percent (198,000)
of all publicly funded births, and legal immigrants are another 13 percent (231,000).
• We roughly
estimate that the annual cost to taxpayers for births to immigrants (legal and illegal) is $5.3 billion; $2.4 billion
of which is for illegal immigrants.
to America Is Not What It Used to Be.
[#4] Immigrants today arrive via 10-hour hops on an
airliner. In the past, waves of immigrants spent 10 months traversing land and sea in a journey of staggering expense
and significant dangers. While this isn't universally true, particularly for the overland migrants that cross America's
southern border, the general point stands: coming to America today does not require the commitment it required in the
[#5] Similarly, in the past, immigrants pretty much renounced their countries of origin. They
made a one-way trip and they adopted the language and values of America. Today, retaining cultural unity with one's
country of origin is a few clicks on the internet, a cheap telephone call, an affordable airfare. [...]
Immigrants in the past arrived in an America that had a voracious need for unskilled workers. Today the American
economy is relentlessly automating jobs that used to require unskilled labor, and the American population already has a
surplus of unskilled workers.
[#7] Immigrants today are arriving in a welfare state, where they are assured
of food, shelter, and medical care that are, in general, orders of magnitude better than anything available to them in their
native countries. This creates a completely different incentive to today's immigrants. In past centuries,
immigrants came to America to find freedom and to work. Today they are offered a smorgasbord of taxpayer-funded social
[#8] Immigrant students today — especially in the coastal urban centers where most of
them settle — enter a public education system that teaches them with a reverse-racist, anti-capitalist bias.
They are taught in our public schools not to assimilate, but to "celebrate diversity"; not to earn opportunities through hard
work, but through fighting discrimination.
Constitution Isn't in Crisis, but the Border Still Is. The Republican-controlled Senate on Thursday [3/14/2019]
followed the lead of the Democratic House and voted to disapprove President Trump's declaration of a national emergency at
the southern border. The success of the disapproval vote was expected in the House, where Democrats keep waving their
arms and saying "It's fine!" while women and children are violently sexually assaulted, the highest number of
arrests at the border since 2008 are tallied, sanctuary cities are protecting murderers, and drug seizures are up at a time
when drugs are killing more people than guns, car crashes, or HIV/AIDS ever did in a single year.
Game Is Rigged. We currently grant one million legal permanent residencies to people from around the world every
year. The number of green card holders is expected to increase by 10 million by 2025. That's more than the
current combined population of Dallas, St. Louis, Denver, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. Now multiply
that number by at least three and a half. Thanks to our chain migration system, created in 1952 and expanded exponentially
by Congress in 1965 and 1990, these new immigrants can sponsor their entire extended families: parents, spouses, adult
children and their children, and siblings and their children. Princeton University researchers found that recently
admitted immigrants sponsored an average of 3.45 additional relatives each. An estimated 85,000 refugees and 20,000-plus
asylees enter the country annually through an overwhelmed system so rife with fraud and abuse that the process is jokingly dubbed
"refugee roulette" by immigration lawyers. In total, from fiscal year 2008 to 2017, the U.S. gave green cards to more than
2 million migrants for various humanitarian claims — a population larger than the city of Philadelphia.
Nearly half a million more immigrants in that time frame got in through the diversity visa lottery. Illegal aliens are
eligible if a legal family member wins the jackpot.
Are Border Crisis Deniers. We are facing a dozen crises at our border. They are impossible to miss:
We are facing an illegal immigration crisis. Our nation is being overrun. Democrats can't see it. They are
in denial. We are facing an illegal alien crime wave in America. How many more innocent American children and
cops must die before we acknowledge the crisis? Democrats can't see it. They are in denial. There is an
illegal alien gang crisis. MS-13 is filling our streets with cold-blooded killers. [...] There is a child sex
trafficking crisis. [...] There is a drug trafficking crisis. [...] There is a prison crisis. Our prisons are filled
with illegal aliens who have committed serious crimes such as rape and murder. Why should we pay the bill? [...] There
is the threat of a disease epidemic. Whether it's tuberculosis or this new polio-like disease that leaves children
paralyzed overnight, who knows what new diseases and tragedies are coming in through that open border? [...] There is a
welfare and national debt crisis. Millions of illegal aliens already in our country cost over $160 billion per
year in welfare, food stamps, court, police and prison costs. More come every day.
illegal immigrant costs US $82G, conservative think tank claims. Every new illegal immigrant that enters the
United States will cost more than $82,000 each over their lifetime, a conservative think tank that advocates for lower
immigration levels has claimed. The Center for Immigration Studies updated their 2012 analysis which put the average
lifetime net fiscal cost of a border crosser at $74,722. In the six years since, the price has jumped to $82,191.
The think tank's analysis has come into question however, with multiple outlets pushing back on its numbers and methodology.
The new figure by the CIS estimates what it takes to protect the border, educate, house and feed illegal immigrants and makes
the assumption they will spend a lifetime on various welfare programs.
Absurdity of an Open Border. Both parties want an unrestricted flood of immigrants to America, but for
different reasons. Democrats want a permanent underclass that reliably votes Democrat. Republicans want cheap
labor to keep their Chamber of Commerce donors happy. Neither party acknowledges any negative consequences of the
current open borders policy, allowing far more than voters and workers to enter our country. Ignored are the contagious
diseases, still uncommon in America, being brought across the borders. Or the criminals we read about daily in the
news, raping and killing Americans. Not to mention potential terrorists.
Cost Taxpayers $100+ Billion Annually. [Scroll down] In fact, if all Americans paid taxes at the same
rate illegal aliens did, the budget deficit would be at least quadruple what it is now. According to prior estimates of
mine based off the size of the 2017 labor force, if we were to replace the entire labor force with illegal immigrants and
have them pay all their taxes (including state and local) to the feds, the federal government would've collected approximately
$240 billion in tax revenue in 2017, as opposed to the $3.3 trillion that the Federal government actually collected.
should shut down the southern border AND the government until we fix our immigration system. By some estimates,
the cost of illegal immigrants in the country is costing the American taxpayer between $116-$134 billion annually. Now
we find out in the last few weeks that 63 percent of non-citizens, half of which are here illegally, are on some form of
welfare — again, funded by the American taxpayer. And the longer non-citizens are in the country, the more
likely they are to be on some form of welfare. If they've been here ten years or more, the percentage goes up to
70 percent. For comparison, only about 30 percent of native-born American citizens are on some form of welfare.
Now take in those statistics and throw in the fact that over the next 20 years between 7 to 8 million new immigrants
will come into the United States via chain migration. Statistics show that those immigrants, by a two to one margin, favor the
Democratic Party. Why? Because they want a greater welfare state.
Deny These Immigration Truths. Both the Senate and the House oath of offices are nearly identical. They
begin like this: "I do solemnly swear or affirm that I will support and defend the constitution of the United States
against all enemies foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same." At this point, are we
even sure that Chuck and Nancy took the oath? I have a news flash for the dynamic duo: When migrants illegally
cross our borders, whether they come to work or to collect welfare, using false documents, whether they come to deal drugs or
join murderous gangs that are already here, this does constitute a foreign enemy action.
Word 'Mean' is Leftists' Lethal Weapon. Fully supported by American leftists, illegals are [defying America].
They are invading our country whether we like it or not, arrogantly breaking our immigration laws. They demand to feed
on our welfare safety-net set up for Americans. Outrageously, Obama gave illegals freebies unavailable to
Americans — free attorneys and more. Obama used taxpayers' money to spend over 60 grand per illegal to
settle them in America. We spend $11 to $22 billion each year on freebies for illegals. Obama spread
illegals around the country, irresponsibly putting medically untested children of illegals into our schools infecting our
kids with strange diseases. [...] The illegals invading our country today have no desire to become Americans; no desire to
assimilate. Quite the opposite. Illegals give learning English, embracing our culture, and honoring our flag
their middle fingers. Fake news hides the fact that many of the thousands of young men illegally invading our country
are known gang members.
to the Nihilistic Futility of Mass Immigration. [Scroll down] None of this is sustainable.
Socialism, whether through foreign aid to developing nations, or through more government benefits approved with the swing
voters coming from developed nations, eventually collapses. Productive citizens, outvoted, overtaxed, and
disenfranchised in their own nations, lose their incentives to work hard. This leads to several inevitable
conclusions. First, it is beyond the capacity of developed nations to accommodate ongoing migrations from the
developing world. Just the increase in Africa's population each decade exceeds the entire current population of the
United States or Western Europe. Second, current foreign aid policies are completely unsustainable, because they
facilitate this population increase without improving any of the other "humanitarian indicators" that might lead to a
cultural shift towards lower birth rates. Third, while it is possible to decouple economic growth from environmental
degradation, the more people there are, the harder that gets.
No Country for Caravans.
Right now, just beyond our southern border are hundreds of foreign nationals champing at the bit to violate our sovereignty. They
have no regard for our laws or for our way of life and we are not now prepared, or even willing, to instill such regard in them.
They will soon be joined by thousands more, and, if this wave is successful in penetrating our borders, perhaps millions more will be
emboldened to come. Will Trump find the resolve that Reagan could not muster? Or will he capitulate like his predecessors
and let our sovereignty go quietly into the night?
the caravan and build the wall to keep deadly drugs out and save lives. A perfect storm is brewing in the
Southern Hemisphere and making its way north to the United States. Heroin, fentanyl and other opioids already pour
through America's southern border and this infiltration is one of three elements that will feed the perfect storm.
Every day, 115 Americans die from opioid overdoses and from tainted drugs passing through our border with Mexico. The
second element is MS-13, the brutal gang that is a drug courier of choice used by the Mexican drug cartels for distribution
of these drugs within the United States. When these two elements are mixed with the third element — the
caravan of several thousand people, mostly men, seeking to break through our southern border — you complete a
toxic combination leading to a perfect storm.
surge highest since 2011; each illegal immigrant costs $70,000 — 7x deportation price. The net costs
to taxpayers for every illegal immigrant who sneaks into the United States has reached nearly $70,000, about seven times the
cost of deporting them, and about $70 billion, according to a new report. And, according to federal Census data, the
surge of legal and illegal immigrants across the Mexico-U.S. border has reached a new high since 2011 and matched the historic
high of 1.75 million set in 1999. The latest Census data from 2016 shows that immigrants continue to come into the
United States, both legally and illegally, and the costs to taxpayers in enforcement and social services continues to
rise — even when offset by the taxes they pay.
The left's recruiting tool and deceptive marketing ploy.

Over 70% of the United States' annual population growth,

justice for taxpaying Americans. There are two systems of justice, but it's not so much about race as it is
about immigration status. If you're an American, chances are you get hard time. If you're an illegal immigrant,
you get everything, and I do mean everything, including an EBT card, MassHealth and a Sect. 8 housing certificate.
First, when the "racist" cops say you have the right to remain silent, the illegal says "no habla" English. He gets
a translator. He claims he's "indigent," so he gets a public defender. If he's charged with OUI, the public
defender hires a psychologist (also on the taxpayers' dime) to say that the illegal immigrant "lacks the enzyme" to
metabolize alcohol and thus can't be held accountable for killing some gringo. But the real double standard kicks in
when the undocumented Democrat gets to the courtroom. A taxpaying American can only dream of the kid-gloves treatment
these Third World fiends get.
Borders Are Not Libertarian So Long As America Is A Welfare State. "Progressives" have been calling for unrestricted
immigration, for abolishing Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and for granting voting rights to illegal immigrants. "Open
borders" advocates decry opponents as racist. [...] Slightly over one-fourth of the children in the United States are now either
immigrants or the children of immigrants. Since the total expenditures on public schooling in the U.S. is almost
$700 billion per year, this cost is far greater than the GDP gains cited by Dalmia, and greater than the $50 billion
she cites for "The Wall." It's also greater than the annual $104 billion for food stamps, the $46 billion for
Section 8 housing programs, or the $30 billion for Aid to Families with Dependent Children for all residents, citizen
or non-citizen. Immigrants also use other social services, but public education for all children residing in the United
States is mandatory. In nineteenth-century America, supposedly with the open borders policies libertarians favor,
immigrant children were not legally excluded from the labor market or mandated a public education.
Republican Party: Not Much of a Horse But the Only One in the Corral. The first economic consequence of
mass immigration is lower labor costs across the economy, from lettuce pickers to computer programmers, and that pushes
historic quantities of money up to America's corporate owners and executives. The working and middle classes endure the
economic downside in the form of fewer jobs and much lower wages. This has all been discussed ad nauseam before.
But it can't be repeated too often: Mass immigration has been an economic bonanza for major owners and executives and
an economic disaster for the other 80% of the population.
No One Has
A 'Right' To Immigrate Into The United States. Is there a human right to immigrate? Many defenders
of open borders think so. Individuals, they argue, are entitled to freedom of movement, which entails the right to
immigrate from one country to another. This view has found support in the newly elected president of Mexico, who
remarked that there is a "human right" to move to the United States. This appeal to freedom of movement is dubious
argument for a number of reasons. For starters, freedom of movement is not unlimited: my freedom of movement
does not give me the right to move into your home.
The Left Want to Abolish ICE.
What Does That Mean? ICE is a division within the Department of Homeland Security that is responsible for
immigration enforcement, smuggling investigations, and terrorism prevention. It's split into several subdivisions,
including Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO), which actually carries out arrests and deportations, and Homeland
Security Investigations (HSI), which tackles drug- and terrorism-related issues. ICE has about 20,000 employees, with
400 offices and $6 billion in annual funding. ICE is not the entity directly responsible for policing the
border — that is Customs and Border Protection, although ICE does deport some of the people CBP apprehends.
ICE is also not the entity responsible for the recent family separation controversy — that is CBP again, which
apprehends immigrants at the border, and the Department of Justice, which prosecutes them.
This is no longer immigration, this is an invasion to take advantage of our wealth, culture and resources. As radio
talk show host Michael Savage recently said, "The lifeboat is full." I think it is tipping over. If a million, or more,
armed men crossed our border, or any border, it would be considered an invasion. Yet, if the same number of men, women
and children illegally cross our borders, unarmed, seeking our wealth and playing upon our kindness, we are expected to
welcome them with open arms.
requires borders. It was telling to watch how Democrats and left-wing commentators responded. Having shed
tears all week about family separation and traumatized children, Trump's opponents began objecting to any detention of
families entering the U.S. illegally. A chorus of critics described the new policy as "handcuffs for all." An MSNBC
host portrayed as a dark "totalitarian" act the very idea of a border guard stopping and arresting an illegal immigrant.
Behind these objections is a premise that goes unstated because it is radical and deeply unpopular. It is that border
enforcement is itself illegitimate.
Asylum Crisis Is a Security Challenge, Not a Legal Problem. Congress cannot enact a law that prevents Central
American migrants from flooding the border. Or, one supposes, it can enact a thousand such laws and look on in
Canute-like futility as the incursion continues. Passing laws is not a serious response to a security challenge, and an
unserious response always emboldens the challenger. Outsiders can overwhelm a national border by armed force or, if the
nation is not willing to defend its border, by sheer numbers. Either way, the challenge can be answered only by the
deployment of physical barriers and armed force sufficient to deny the onslaught and discourage others from coming.
Only after the crisis is over, after the security threat is contained, can we establish a legal process backed by resources
scaled to handle the number of outsiders realistically expected to petition for entry.
immorality of the open-borders Left. We have two choices when it comes to border security and interior
enforcement. We can continue telegraphing the message that when you come here with children you are home free.
This will continue fueling the drug crisis, growing MS-13, enriching the drug cartels, inducing sex trafficking and terrible
crimes at the border, encouraging illegals to kidnap children to gain admission, and causing death and mayhem on both sides
of the border. Or we could finally deter this behavior by announcing an end to any immigration requests not processed
in a controlled environment through our embassy. If you are concerned about "separating children" and don't support the
latter path, then you need to seriously examine your values and priorities. The entirety of the epidemic-level increase
in both drugs and MS-13 began around 2014-2015 with the rise of UACs and the collapse of interior enforcement against
criminal alien drug trafficking networks operating in our major cities. That was all precipitated by the rise of the
"dreamer" political movement incentivizing people to come here as children or to bring children here to gain admission
America Needs. We spend billions every year on illegal immigration; that is, on persons who drive down wages
even as they contribute nothing to the welfare state from which they derive a great deal. (Studies estimate that 50 to
60 percent of illegal immigrants receive entitlements.) Not to mention the many crimes — drug-related
and otherwise — that result from such illegal entry.
Pelosi's 'Immoral, Ineffective and Expensive' Argument.
If you try to attend next month's Super Bowl at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, you better have a ticket or some other type
of pass that allows you to legally enter the facility. If you don't, you won't get in. They have built a great
big beautiful wall around that field, which, according to the stadium's website, was constructed with $1.129 billion in
private and public money. To enter, you will need to pass through a gate, where people will verify whether you have the
right to do so. Because of this, you can bet almost no one will migrate from other parts of the country or the world
to see if they can illegally penetrate the security around the Super Bowl and attend the game for free. They know they
cannot succeed. So, they will not try. That will also spare them the misery of standing outside in Minnesota in
February. The NFL [...] is more serious about border security at its stadiums than Congress has been in recent decades
about border security in the American southwest.
How to Report Illegal Aliens.
Under federal law, any non-U.S. citizen is an alien. Aliens who have entered the United States without permission, or
who have violated the terms of their admission, are identified under the law as illegal aliens. That is a fact, not an
issue for debate. It doesn't matter whether someone crossed our nation's borders illegally or overstayed a visa, their
presence in the country is illegal which makes them deportable under the Immigration and Nationality Act.
U.S. Has More Immigrants Than Any Other Country. A new study by the Pew Research Center shows that the U.S. has
more than 40 million immigrants, more than any other country in the world. It also takes in about one-fifth of the
world's total migrants. The report looks at trends from 1960 to 2015. According to the report in 2015 the U.S. hit a
record high of 43.2 million immigrants accounting for 13.4% of the population, the same number that is used by the Center of
Immigration Studies. This is four times higher than in 1960 when only 9.7 million immigrants lived in the U.S.,
accounting for only 5.4% of the population.
The Case Against
Immigration. In the United States, there is strong evidence that the national interest has not been well served by the country's
immigration policy over the last five decades. Even as levels of immigration have approached historic highs, debate on the topic has been
subdued, and policymakers and opinion leaders in both parties have tended to overstate the benefits and understate or ignore the costs of
immigration. It would make a great deal of sense for the country to reform its immigration policies by more vigorously enforcing existing
laws, and by moving away from the current system, which primarily admits immigrants based on family relationships, toward one based on the
interests of Americans.
Takes a Holiday. The law states that foreign nationals cannot enter and permanently reside in the United States
without going through a checkpoint and in most cases obtaining a legal visa or green card. But immigration law has been
all but ignored. Or it was redefined as not committing additional crimes while otherwise violating immigration law.
Then the law was effectively watered down further to allow entering and residing illegally if not committing "serious" crimes.
Now, the adjective "serious" is being redefined as something that does not lead to too many deportations. The logical
end is no immigration law at all — and open borders.
Mainstream Media Have Forfeited All Respect. In 1988 there were 16 million immigrants (including fewer than 1 million
illegal aliens) living in the United States. Today, that number has skyrocketed to 42.4 million (including an estimated 12 million
illegal aliens). This enormous increase (165%) in the immigrant population (while the overall population growth was just 29%) has not
only put pressure on a stagnant job market, but also has been a major factor in the decline of median income in the country as well as
skyrocketing public spending. Rather than report the facts, the media chose instead to highlight human-interest stories about the
plight of an illegal immigrant family whenever one could be found, to extensively and sympathetically cover immigrant marches and
demonstrations, to highlight accusations of alleged xenophobia and intolerance, and generally be an ombudsman for the immigrant population.
16 quotes prove America can exclude or deport any immigrant — for any reason. The ubiquitous notion among the
political and legal establishment that there are any constitutional limitations on our sovereign right to exclude any
immigrant for any reason is the most dangerous constitutional crisis we are facing in the coming months. It is one of
the reasons why I wrote "Stolen Sovereignty" — as a reminder of our history, traditions, and laws on immigration
and sovereignty. Based on 200 years of case law, the accepted laws of nation states, and the principles of the social
compact, popular sovereignty, and jurisdictional sovereignty, the American people — as expressed through their
elected representatives — have the right to exclude or deport any non-citizen for any reason. The prudence
of such a move is a political question best dealt with by the political branches of government depending on the situation at
hand. But the courts have absolutely no ability to force the political branches to allow aliens to remain in this
country against statutes passed by Congress. There is no due process for aliens to remain in the country in the same
way non-citizens have full due process when facing jail time or indefinite detention. That is the most settled area of
law. Even those who aren't politically comfortable with exercising this power to the max must concede that it is a
dangerous proposition to cede the legal right to exercise that power.
for a Complete Halt on All Immigration. This is a serious proposal — and a necessary one.
Consider: with the U.S. having a replacement-level fertility rate of 2.1 children per woman, immigration is the only
reason our population is increasing. As to this, our numbers have swelled from 100 million people in 1915 to 200 million
in 1968 to 320 million today. And it's projected they will reach approximately 400 million just after 2050.
Obviously, such growth involves strain on natural resources, social services and infrastructure. Yet while the Left purports
to care about the environment, it also pursues open-border policies with jihadist-like zeal. But when will enough population
be enough? When it stands at 450 million? A half billion? A billion? The Left likes to push "family
planning." But what about national-family planning?
to 40 Million Illegals Can Be Deported. The first thing to recognize is that the illegal alien problem arose because of the 1987 Reagan
Amnesty nearly 30 years ago. By some estimates, up to 40 million people have entered the USA illegally since that time, so encouraging
them to leave may take an extended period of time as well. [...] Somehow, the left and corporatist right have come to believe that our country would
collapse without illegal immigration and open borders. We should remind those bleeding hearts who support the invasion of our country by
third-worlders that, for example, fresh produce somehow made its way to market before 1987 without illegals living here. Note also that
countries with strict immigration policies and zero illegal immigration enjoy ample supplies of fruits and vegetables.
the Supreme Court and President Obama. In 2014, President Barack Obama signed 12 executive orders directing
various agencies in the departments of State, Justice and Homeland Security to refrain from deporting some 4 million adult
immigrants illegally present in the United States if they are the parents of children born here or legally present here and
if they hold a job, obtain a high-school diploma or its equivalent, pay taxes and stay out of prison. Unfortunately for
the president, the conditions he established for avoiding deportation had been rejected by Congress. In response to the
executive orders, 26 states and the House of Representatives sued the president and the recipients of the orders, seeking
to prevent them from being enforced.
The Cloward-Piven Strategy Is Driving The United States To Collapse. Illegal Immigration on its own is already one of the
most important threats to the future of the United States, because it reflects a deliberate attempt by our political elite to displace and
supplant its native population with one that will always vote for them, remain dependent on welfare, and take jobs from Americans by working
"under the table" at wages that American citizens cannot survive on. This raises a logical question: if illegal immigration
already displaces such a great number of Americans and creates so much controversy and strife, why keep bringing in as many as possible?
A further question to ask is why do so now, as opposed to waiting until the economy is better? Our nation is nowhere near the point of
recovery since nearly 50% of Americans are already on one form or another of government assistance, our nation has an interest rate student
loan bubble that will both burst soon, and an economy that is either being outsourced or stolen by thieves with H1B visas. All of these
factors clearly show that our nation is at its breaking point, yet we have a political elite that wishes to first enact unconditional amnesty
and then import migrants from shady 3rd world countries. Any rational observer will realize that adding 13 million MORE welfare,
public assistance or student loan recipients may likely cause the entire system to collapse due to inefficiency and a lack of adequate funding.
Timeline: Obama's Dismantling of U.S. Immigration Laws. The Federation for American Immigration Reform
(FAIR) has recently released a video they call a summary of the "Obama Immigration Policy Timeline Wrecking Ball" which
outlines steps Obama has taken from the beginning of his presidency to dismantle enforcement of U.S. immigration laws.
The video also shows how Hillary Clinton assisted his actions. The video is a must see by every American. It
explains what Obama meant when he promised to "fundamentally transform" America. One of the reasons why President Obama
is so concerned about Donald Trump winning the White House in 2016, is because Trump has built his campaign around the
promise of stopping illegal immigration and building a wall on the Mexican border. Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton has
embraced illegal immigrants, promising to enact amnesty within her first 100 days in office and said she will "fight
for immigration reform that provides a full and equal path to citizenship." [Video clip]

Should Reject Criminal Alien's Appeal of Deportation Order. Under federal immigration law, a permanent resident
alien who is here legally is "removable" if he is "inadmissible." That is to say, he should never have been admitted in
the first place because he met one of the factors listed in the statute (8 U.S.C. § 1182(a)), such as posing "a threat
to the property, safety, or welfare of the alien or others." A permanent resident alien is also removable if he is "deportable"
under another statute (8 U.S.C. § 1227(a)), which lists a series of disqualifying offenses, including violations of any
"law of the United States." The attorney general has the discretion to cancel the removal of such an alien, but to be eligible
for such cancellation, the alien has to show not only that he is statutorily eligible for such relief from the attorney general, but
that he also deserves such favorable treatment.
Bonfire of the Democrats. Policies favored by Democrats in Congress or running for office: [...] [#2] Immigration.
It is obvious that the Dems do not want to see immigration controlled. They see unlimited Latino immigration as a source of unlimited
new votes that they think will go their way, especially in states where illegal voting can be made easy by state policies involving easy
registration. California is a prime example. There is a reason why California refused to participate in a national audit of
voting after 2016. Democrat hostility to border and immigration security police is recognized by the Deplorables as intended to
create Open Borders. The Deplorables do not want to become a cultural minority in the country their ancestors built.
runs up against US Justice Department rules in pardoning immigrants. Attorney General William Barr is trying to
deport some legal immigrants who were convicted of crimes many years ago. Gov. Gavin Newsom is trying to spare
some of the same immigrants from deportation by pardoning them. It's shaping up as another round in the Trump
administration vs. California. The immigrants are legal U.S. residents who, because they have not become
citizens, face potential deportation for past crimes that were punishable by sentences of a year or more. Barr,
overturning long-standing decisions by immigration courts, declared last month that migrants convicted of long-ago crimes
could be deported even when their home states had retroactively reduced or erased their sentences.
numbers of Mexicans flying to Canada and sneaking across the northern border. Mexican citizens are increasingly
being arrested for illegally entering the United States from Canada, and the majority are going through a specific part of
Vermont and northeastern New York, according to federal law enforcement officials. In the area, known as the Swanton
Sector, 822 people during the 2019 fiscal year were stopped while traversing fields and forests between official crossing
points, more than the total, 758, arrested for crossing in all seven other regions on the Canadian border. Mexicans and
Romanians make up 565 of the 822 known illegal entrants.

migrants returned to Mexico under the Trump administration's "Remain in Mexico" policy have given up their asylum claims,
with many of them returning home, according to statistics included in a new assessment of the policy released this week by
the Department of Homeland Security. The policy, known formally as the Migrant Protection Protocols, sends migrants

of the administration's efforts to end "catch and release," by which migrants are released into the U.S. while their cases
Times: Refugees Needed to Fill 'Void of Cultural Diversity' in White Towns. More refugees must be resettled across

There has never been any popular demand in this country for immigrants from other countries. The influx of foreigners and
so-called refugees is entirely the work of the government and the immigrants themselves. Most of the people who are called "refugees" are
just indigent families and destitute individuals from poor countries that lack welfare programs, and they're only coming here to get free meals.
The newcomers are tolerated and welcomed only as long as they assimilate, work, learn English, and behave like us. Nobody thinks their
little town would be a better place if only a few hundred strangers from the other side of the world showed up tomorrow. The New York
Times is pushing the idea of "refugee resettlement" to whitewash Barack H. Obama's legacy and to support the arrival of future Democrats.
Green Cards to Diplomas Is Stupid and Suicidal. I was flabbergasted to hear Turning Point USA founder Charlie
Kirk telling students at a university campus lecture last week that "We should staple a green card behind your diploma." He
repeated this nonsense at Ohio State University during a "Culture War" tour stop this week, asserting that any foreign
national who graduates from any "four-year college" should get a green card if any "American employer" needs to fill a
job. "I don't think it makes sense to export that person to go back to Korea or, you know, Sudan or whatever," Kirk
argues, because it "doesn't make logical sense" to "export intellectual investment that we made within our own university."

often arrive without fluency in English or a high-school education.
cuts welfare test for immigration fee waivers. The Department of Homeland Security's citizenship agency
announced Friday it is streamlining the way migrants can apply for a discount on their immigration fees, saying that the old
method unfairly gave an advantage to people living in some states. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will no
longer accept a migrant's use of a state welfare program as evidence someone is poor enough to qualify for a fee waiver,
because the states vary too widely in their eligibility. Instead, applicants will have to prove their incomes are less
than 150% of the federal poverty level or they'll have to make a convincing argument that they are a hardship case.
Alaskans Suffer From Dems' Failed Border Policies. With Juneau located some 2,000 miles from California's San

'Immigrants First' Policy. President Donald Trump's key immigration rule change, to discourage immigrants from
relying on public health programs, food stamps, housing assistance and other welfare, got derailed on Friday [10/18/2019] by three
federal judges. Their decisions, blocking Trump's rule from going into effect, are wins for Democrats and immigration
lobbyists. America's poor are the losers. Our country needs to take care of its own needy first. Trump's
proposed rule would make it harder for immigrants who use welfare to qualify for green cards and permanent residence, and it
would give preference to immigrants who fend for themselves. The rule would also require visa applicants to show they
won't use welfare if they're let in the country. Manhattan federal Judge George Daniels blasted Trump's proposed rule
as an "exclusion in search of a justification," implying it was a racist ploy to keep out foreigners.
takes step to require DNA samples from asylum-seekers. The Trump administration is planning to collect DNA
samples from asylum-seekers and other migrants detained by immigration officials and will add the information to a massive
FBI database used by law enforcement hunting for criminals, a Justice Department official said. The Justice Department
on Monday [10/21/2019] issued amended regulations that would mandate DNA collection for almost all migrants who cross between
official entry points and are held even temporarily.
the Diversity Visa Lottery. Each year, the Diversity Visa Program accepts 50,000 randomly selected
people — only from countries that don't send many immigrants to the United States — to obtain permanent
residency (commonly called a "green card"). It's a way for individuals and families who otherwise wouldn't have any way to
legally immigrate to the United States to get a green card. The program is often seen as one that should be ended in a
shift toward a more merit-based system. According to Heritage Foundation: "It does not bolster the skills of the
American workforce, nor does it reunite families or serve any humanitarian function. Its only purpose is to increase
ethnic and cultural heterogeneity in the U.S. — a dubious goal that weakens the social ties within communities."

Attorneys Prosecute 110.5K Illegal Aliens in 2019, Highest Level in History. United States Attorneys' Offices
around the country prosecuted about 110,500 illegal aliens and illegal alien smugglers in Fiscal Year 2019 — the
highest annual rate of prosecution for immigration-related crimes ever in American history. Newly released data by the
Justice Department reveals how President Trump's administration has hugely increased the number of illegal aliens and illegal
alien smugglers being prosecuted after years of decline by the Bush and Obama administrations.
Dept. sets record for prosecuting illegal immigrants. The Justice Department set a record over the last year,
prosecuting more criminal cases against illegal immigrants and migrant smugglers than any other year on record, officials
announced Friday [10/18/2019]. The numbers are still a tiny fraction of the overall illegal activity at the border.
With nearly 1 million unauthorized crosses in fiscal year 2019, the government still only charged about 106,000 people with
either illegal entry or illegal re-entry after a previous deportation. Another 4,297 people were charged with migrant
smuggling, harboring or otherwise assisting in the illegal traffic.

Immigration Deal Breaks Up Caravan of 2000 Migrants. New immigration procedures implemented by Mexican
President Andrés Manuel López-Obrador (AMLO) effectively disbanded a group of 2,000 mostly Central American caravan
migrants. Immigration policies put in place following an agreement between Mexico and the Trump Administration broke up
a caravan consisting of approximately 2,000 people from Central America, Africa, and the Caribbean Islands, the Associated

being held up for official travel documents. The group quickly encountered Mexican Federal Police and members of the
newly formed National Guard.

violated the law by declaring emergency to divert funds to border wall, judge rules. President Trump acted
unlawfully when he declared a national emergency in order to fund his long-promised border wall, a federal judge ruled Friday
[10/11/2019]. Texas federal Judge David Briones' order left open the option he could also temporarily bar construction
of the wall at the southern border. The County of El Paso and an organization called Border Network for Human Rights
sued Trump and the administration earlier this year, claiming the president violated the law when he declared a national
emergency in order to divert funds from the Department of Defense to bankroll the project.
blocks Trump policy that makes green cards harder to get. A Manhattan federal court judge has issued a nationwide order
blocking the Trump administration from enforcing a new regulation that would make it easier to deny green cards and visas to immigrants
who might need public assistance in the future. Judge George Daniels' Friday [10/11/2019] ruling came just days before the so-called
"public charge" rule was set to go into effect on Oct. 18. The new rule would have made it possible to brand any immigrant with
the potential to end up on public assistance as a burden, and consider that in deciding to issue green cards or visas.

deportation official unloaded on a federal judge Thursday, accusing him of endangering American communities with a ruling
late last month that curtailed ICE's ability to ask local authorities to hold illegal immigrants for pickup. Matt
Albence, acting director at U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said the judge, an Obama appointee to the bench, was
ignoring the way law enforcement operates in the 21st century by ruling ICE's databases aren't reliable enough to sustain
detainer requests. "This decision will threaten public safety as it will lead to the release of criminal aliens back
onto the street," Mr. Albence said. He cast Judge André Birotte Jr.'s ruling as not only overreach
by a runaway federal judiciary, but as part of an anti-ICE sentiment sweeping the country and making it tougher for his
deportation officers to enforce the laws.

fraudsters are gaming pathway to citizenship for immigrant domestic violence victims. The government's special

new watchdog audit Monday that suggests migrants have figured out how to game the system. Fraud cases have quadrupled
this year alone, the Government Accountability Office says, and now total about 13% of new applications from those who
"self-petition" for protections under the Violence Against Women Act. Claiming abuse can be a fast track to
citizenship, and at the very least usually serves as a shield against deportation and leads to immediate work permission for
immigrants who allege they were victims of domestic violence. Experts said those benefits make the program attractive
for both real victims and fraudsters.

bans calling someone an 'illegal alien' out of hate. It's now against the law in New York City to threaten
someone with a call to immigration authorities or refer to them as an "illegal alien" when motivated by hate. The
restrictions — violations of which are punishable by fines of up to $250,000 per offense — are outlined
in a 29-page directive released by City Hall's Commission on Human Rights. "'Alien' — used in many laws to
refer to a 'noncitizen' person — is a term that may carry negative connotations and dehumanize immigrants, marking
them as 'other,'" reads one passage of the memo. "The use of certain language, including 'illegal alien' and
'illegals,' with the intent to demean, humiliate, or offend a person or persons constitutes discrimination."
Death of American Citizenship. Estimates of the number of undocumented American residents range from 11 million

Nations General Assembly in New York City. It was another historic speech. President Trump called out China,
Iran, North Korea and the Taliban. President then called out the open borders social justice activists.
labor camps, caning: Illegal entry [is] no misdemeanor in other countries. Jumping the border in
Singapore is punishable by six months in prison — and not less than three strokes with a cane. In Russia, it
can earn you up to two years in a prison labor camp. Pakistan goes as high as 10 years in prison, while India allows
for up to eight years behind bars for those who sneak across its boundaries. It's a far cry from the U.S., where illegal
entry is a misdemeanor, with a maximum of six months in jail. In reality, most of those who are prosecuted —
and only about 1 in 5 border jumpers are — are sentenced to time served and are out within days.
14.3 million illegal immigrants in US costing taxpayers $130B. Fueled by lax laws, promises of sanctuary, and a
growing threat to shut down the U.S.-Mexico border, the illegal immigrant population in the United States has surged nearly
2 million to 14.3 million, according to a new calculation from a key immigration policy group. Citing several
reasons for the growth over the past two years, the Federation for American Immigration Reform said the total could jump to
21 million in just six years without reforms to stop illegal immigration and improve legal entry. "These new numbers
suggest that we have entered a new phase of the ongoing phenomenon of illegal immigration," said Dan Stein, president of FAIR.
Communists Protest Outside ICE Warden's Home: 'No Borders, No Nations!' Communists and anti-enforcement
activists in Denver, Colorado, protested outside the home of an Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) facility warden,
shouting, "No borders, no nations, no racist deportations!" As Breitbart News has chronicled, Abolish ICE Denver,
Denver Communists, and Denver Action Network organized outside the home of Aurora's ICE processing center warden Johnny
Choate, arriving in shirts reading, "Let them all in," and, "Close the concentration camps."
admin. reaches asylum deal with El Salvador. The Trump administration signed an asylum agreement Friday [9/20/2019] with El
Salvador, giving the U.S. the right to repatriate migrants who cross through El Salvador to reach the U.S. and who then request asylum
here. Officials hope the agreement, along with a similar one signed with Guatemala over the summer, will change the incentives
that have spurred this year's illegal immigration surge at the border. Most asylum-seekers have bogus claims and won't win their
cases, but under the current system, many of them were allowed to remain in the U.S. while they argued their case — giving
them a foothold here. Officials believe that if they can block those bogus asylum-seekers from reaching U.S. territory in the
first place, it will reduce the overall flow.
In Juarez: How Trump's 'Remain in Mexico' Program Could Ruin The Smugglers' Trade. [Scroll down]
They say they paid smugglers thousands of dollars to get this far, sometimes more than once. [Mariela] Hernandez still owes
her smuggler $2,500. "I just want an opportunity to come to the United States and work," she says. "I don't
understand why others were allowed in but not us. What changed?" What changed was the Migrant Protection
Protocols. Launched as a pilot program in El Paso and San Diego in January, the Trump administration expanded and
accelerated the MPP program, also known as "remain in Mexico," as part of a deal struck with Mexico in June to crack down on
illegal immigration from Central America. The program requires migrants seeking asylum in the United States to wait in
Mexico while their cases are being adjudicated — a process that takes months. All told, the United States
has sent nearly 43,000 non-Mexicans back across the Rio Grande to await their hearings.
O'Rourke Confirms: 'Yes' I Want to Tear Down Border Walls. Robert Francis "Beto" O'Rourke (D) confirmed in an
interview with Latino USA's Maria Hinojosa Friday [9/13/2019] that he is in favor of physically tearing down existing
sections of the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. "So Beto I just want to be clear. Have you said you want to tear
down the wall?" Hinojosa asked. "If I'm elected, I will tear down that wall. Then suddenly the Democrat is
quoting the Republican Ronald Reagan — tear down that wall."

Holder: 'Democrats' Need to Know 'Borders Mean Something'. Former Attorney General Eric Holder spoke out
defending the Obama administration from critics on the far-left about its deportation efforts while warning 2020 presidential
candidates that the U.S. needs borders. "The emphasis there was on people who had criminal records, people who posed a
danger, a public safety risk," Holder, who served under former President Obama, said of the Obama administration's policy in
a CNN interview released Saturday [9/14/2019]. "Democrats have to understand that... borders mean something," he added.
Now Leaving Yelp-like Ratings on the Best Illegal-enabling Services. If you want to know why Invasion USA
continues apace, look no further than Big Migration, a lucrative racket so brazen that border-jumping migrants "can now offer
Yelp-style reviews for attaining the finest in illegal alien-enabling services, not just in one's choice of smuggling coyote,
but in all the vast numbers of choices in NGOs offering shelters and services," writes American Thinker's Monica
Showalter. So much for illegals being "in the shadows."
Dem Supports Decriminalizing Border Crossings. A Democrat running in a key Texas swing district supports
decriminalizing illegal border crossings. "Yes is the answer. We absolutely have to repeal it," Shannon Hutcheson
said in reference to Section 1325, the statute declaring illegal entry into the U.S. a criminal offense. Hutcheson is
seeking the Democratic nomination in Texas's 10th Congressional District, which national party officials have listed as a
potential target in 2020.
U.N. is flying and busing migrants through Mexico back to Central America. A United Nations agency, with
funding from the U.S. State Department, is transporting thousands of immigrants from the U.S.-Mexico border back to Central
America in a program that has drawn the ire of migrant legal advocates. The advocates question whether migrants fully
understand their rights when they accept free plane and bus tickets home. The program was in full swing Tuesday in this
border city opposite El Paso, where 63 Honduran migrants boarded two buses chartered by the U.N.'s International Organization
for Migration, which has transported more than 2,200 Central American migrants home from Juarez and Tijuana so far this year,
a spokesman said.
9th Circuit hands White House major win on asylum policy. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — long a
liberal bastion that has been aggressively reshaped into a more moderate court by the Trump administration —
handed the president a major win late Monday, lifting a nationwide injunction on his asylum policy. Earlier in the day,
Obama-appointed U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar in California had reinstated a nationwide halt on the Trump administration's
plan to prevent most migrants from seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border, if they first crossed through another country on
Court allows Trump asylum restrictions to take effect, ending 9th Circuit injunctions. In a major win for the
Trump administration, the Supreme Court issued an order late Wednesday ending all injunctions that had blocked the White
House's ban on asylum for anyone trying to enter the U.S. by traveling through a third country, such as Mexico, without
seeking protection there. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals — long a liberal bastion that has been
aggressively reshaped into a more moderate court by the Trump administration — handed the White House a partial
victory in the case on Monday by ending the nationwide injunction against the asylum policy. However, the 9th Circuit
kept the injunction alive within the territorial boundaries of the circuit, which encompasses California, Arizona, Alaska,
Hawaii, Montana, Nevada, Idaho, Guam, Oregon and Washington.
Supreme Court Lets
New Trump Asylum Restrictions Take Effect. The Supreme Court will allow the Trump administration to enforce new
immigration rules against asylum seekers at the southern border. The high court did not give reasons for its Wednesday
night decision or disclose a vote count, as is typical of orders of this nature. Justice Sonia Sotomayor wrote a short
dissent, which Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg joined.
Court allows Trump administration to deny asylum to migrants on southern border. The Supreme Court will allow
the Trump administration to fully enforce a new policy aimed at curbing Central American migrants' ability to claim asylum at
the U.S.-Mexico border, handing a victory to President Trump in his efforts to crack down on illegal immigration. The
Supreme Court's decision came down Wednesday evening, with Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissenting.
The high court lifted a lower court order that blocked the Trump administration from broadly enforcing the new rule for
asylum-seekers, under which migrants arriving at the southern border are ineligible for asylum unless they have sought
refugee status in one of the countries they traveled through first.
Supreme Court allows broad enforcement
of asylum limits. The Supreme Court is allowing nationwide enforcement of a new Trump administration rule that
prevents most Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the United States.
Injunction Against Trump's Asylum Ban Lifted Again by Ninth Circuit. A federal appeals court on Tuesday [9/10/2019]
temporarily rolled back the nationwide injunction preventing the Trump Administration's asylum ban — requiring any
migrants passing through Central America to seek asylum in one the nations they pass through before applying in the U.S. from
taking effect. In response to a "Renewed Emergency Motion" submitted by the Justice Department, the Ninth Circuit Court
of Appeals issued an administrative order granting the government's request to stay the nationwide injunction put in place
Monday night by U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar of California. Tigar reasoned that a nationwide injunction was
necessary because of the need to "maintain uniform immigration policy."
Injunction Against Trump Asylum Policy Lifted. President Trump's newly-enacted policy of denying asylum to
illegal aliens who first passed through another country prior to entering America has been re-implemented, as per a report
from Politico. U.S. District Court Judge Jon Tigar of San Francisco has ordered a nationwide injunction on the
policy, which would require immigrants to seek asylum in the first country that they entered after leaving their home countries.
immigrant invites ICE to town hall, then is shocked to find he's being deported. This is one of those
heartwarming stories that only comes along once in a while and is too good to not share. It takes place in Houston,
Texas and features local businessman Roland Gramajo. [...] If you click through to the Times article, you'll see that I
wasn't trying to mislead you about this story. That's how they told it. In fact, you have to work your way down
several paragraphs before finally locating the following biographical information. "Mr. Gramajo had been
staying in the country illegally — raising his five children, running a business in Houston and helping fellow
immigrants with translations — without contact from ICE for about 15 years." The crux of the Times
coverage focuses on suspicions that ICE is "targeting activists" who are "helping" (illegal) immigrants. But let's face
the facts here. Dude... you're in the country illegally and have been breaking the law by operating a business
for a decade and a half. And then you decided to throw a big shindig and you invited the office of Immigrations and
'Coaching' Migrants During Secret Mexico Trips, Leaked Letter Alleges. Ranking member of the House Oversight
Committee Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) is demanding answers over Democrats' mysterious trips to Mexico, including details into
the alleged "coaching" of migrants to exploit United States immigration law, a letter from the Republican exclusively
obtained by Fox News says. The letter, addressed to committee chairman Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), inquires about
"at least two committee staff trips into Mexico in August — one of which required Border Patrol agents to provide a
special escort back into the U.S.," Fox reports. Republicans were not informed of the trips, according to Rep. Jordan.
demand details on Dems' mysterious trips to Mexico. Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are calling on
their Democratic colleagues to provide more details about a series of trips taken to Mexico while staff were touring border
detention facilities, amid reports that at least one Democrat has been involved in "coaching" migrants there on how to
exploit U.S. immigration law. In a letter to Chairman Elijah Cummings, D-Md., obtained by Fox News, ranking member Jim
Jordan, R-Ohio, said there were at least two committee staff trips into Mexico in August — one of which required
Border Patrol agents to provide a special escort back into the U.S.
Drafts Plan to Curb Work Permits for Illegal Migrants. The Department of Homeland Security is discarding a 1994
rule which says officials must provide work permits to asylum seekers within 30 days of their request. The tighter
curbs on work permits may reduce the huge flow of low wage foreign migrants into U.S. blue collar jobs. In turn, the
reduced inflow will pressure employers to offer Americans higher wages as they compete for the limited pool of U.S. workers[.]
on Illegal Immigration Contributing to Classroom Overcrowding: 'I Don't See That At All'. Rep. Norma
Torres (D-Calif.) said she does not think closing detention centers for illegal immigration would further contribute to
classroom overcrowding in public schools. According to a 2017 report from The Education Trust-West, more than 250,000
students in public schools had undocumented parents. The report also found that "1 in 13 Californians is undocumented."
School districts in cities such as Los Angeles have struggled with classroom overcrowding.
announces 56 percent drop in number of migrants arriving at US border. The Mexican government announced Friday [9/6/2019]
that the number of migrants coming to its border with the U.S. had dropped by 56 percent over the past three months as the country tries
to avert President Trump's threatened tariffs on Mexico's exports to its northern neighbor. Foreign Secretary Marcelo Ebrard,
citing data from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) said the number of migrants apprehended at the frontier in August was 63,989
in August, down from 146,266 in May. Those numbers included people who presented themselves at U.S. ports of entry and were
Increasing Immigration, Giving Illegals Right to Vote Most Unpopular 2020 Political Positions. Increasing
illegal and legal immigration to the United States is the most unpopular position a 2020 presidential candidate can take, as
well as giving illegal aliens the right to vote, according to a new poll. The latest Harvard/Harris Poll finds that
2020 presidential candidates who want to increase overall immigration to the U.S. — while the country already
admits 1.5 million foreign nationals every year — are the least likely to win over American voters.
national arrested in South Texas for his role in conspiracy to bring illegal aliens into the US. A Bangladeshi
man residing in Mexico was arrested Saturday [8/31/2019] — upon his flight arrival into the George Bush
International Airport in Houston, Texas — for his role in a scheme to smuggle illegal aliens into the United
States. [...] According to the superseding indictment which was unsealed Sept. 4, from March 2017 to August 2018, [Milon]
Miah conspired to bring and brought 15 Bangladeshi nationals into the United States at the Texas-Mexico border in exchange
for payment. Miah allegedly maintained a hotel in Tapachula, Mexico, where he housed and fed illegal aliens, and he
provided them with plane tickets to locations in northern Mexico where the illegal aliens were met by other smugglers who
transported them to the U.S. border.
We Don't Trust
You. [Scroll down] Since the 1980s, nearly every time Americans have been allowed to vote on illegal
immigration, they've opposed it — denying government services to illegal aliens, denying bail to illegal aliens,
imposing English language requirements, allowing police to request documentation from suspected illegal aliens and on and on
and on. All of these democratically achieved results were met with rage, insults, prejudice — and often a
court overturning the vote. This culminated in 2016, when Americans decided to make an utterly preposterous candidate
not a mayor or congressman, not even a governor, but president of the United States based on his promise to deport
illegal aliens and build a wall. We know how that turned out.
will big city Democrats stop enabling illegal immigration? The phenomena the President described are very
real — the poor, mostly black residents of many Baltimore neighborhoods have been forced to put up with levels of
violence and squalor that would turn the stomachs of white, liberal suburbanites. Instead of facing that reality and
demanding change, those left wing suburbanites just ignore it. It's not just Baltimore. The irony of today's
Democrats is that they espouse values claiming to care for minority communities, but in reality the low-income communities
they represent are mostly populated by minorities who have had their economic interests betrayed at every turn by the
Democratic Party's dedication to fighting for open border policies. Study after study has shown that native-born black
men are the group that suffers most from mass, low-skilled immigration.
33 Tough Questions
for Pro-Immigration Christians. We learned some things about poor people entering a welfare state whose elites
discourage them from adopting that nation's values. They tend to vote for a bigger welfare state, and even more
immigration. Not all of them, but an electoral majority, and that's what matters. Nor do self-styled pro-life
Latino immigrants seem to be supporting pro-life Democrats. That party has become even more intolerantly pro-abortion
in the past 20 years, as such migrants became a key part of its base.
Returned to Mexico Under Trump Immigration Policy. Asylum seekers, especially from non-contiguous countries,
pose a unique challenge to the immigration system. Preexisting laws and regulations mean that asylum seekers can only
be detained for so long before being released, while the large immigration court backlog essentially guarantees that these
time thresholds will be passed. The result is a system of de facto catch-and-release, in which an individual can simply
claim asylum at the border and then disappear into the interior while his or her case is processed. The stated goal of
the "Remain in Mexico" policy at the time of its implementation was to curb the then-swelling crisis at the southwestern
border, which was in no small part a product of this asylum loophole.
Migrants Protest Denial of Passage Through Mexico to U.S.. Hundreds of African migrants are finding themselves
trapped in Mexico's southern border region after new immigration rules no longer allow them safe passage to the U.S. The
rule changes now say they must naturalize in Mexico or exit through its southern border. A Cameroonian migrant, Esteban
Azu, 37, said he paid human smugglers $8,000 to get him into the U.S.
The Editor says...
$8,000 is quite a lot of money in Cameroon, where the per capita income is
about $3,352. The article goes on
to say that this fellow's "journey took him from his home country to Turkey, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica,
Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, and finally to Mexico," which leads to the obvious question, "If you are fleeing from
tyranny, destitution, civil unrest, terrorism, or war, what was wrong with Turkey, Ecuador, Colombia, Panama, Costa Rica,
Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico?"
'nation of laws'? With immigration, only when it's convenient for Democrats. Our Constitution was supposed to
make America a nation of laws, not of men. That changed when President Barack Obama put aside the classes of deportable
aliens listed in section 237(a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) and created his own list of deportable alien
classes. The Democrats are still restricting deportations, but they are doing it now by preventing Trump from receiving
the funds he needs for effective enforcement measures. Moreover, they make enforcement costly for him politically by
demonizing him whenever he initiates a significant enforcement measure. They didn't have to resort to such tactics.
They could have just replaced the INA with their own immigration bill during the early years of the Obama administration.
Who Make A Living Criticizing ICE Are Shocked To Find Themselves Being Deported. Marcos Baltazar, an
undocumented immigrant from Guatemala who sits on the board of the Alabama-based immigrants' rights group Adelante, was
arrested during a routine check-in on Thursday. He and his 18-year-old son are being held at the Etowah County
Detention Center, a facility plagued by allegations of human rights abuses. Though Adelante has been hesitant to accuse
ICE of detaining Baltazar because of his advocacy work, he's not the first high-profile activist the agency has
arrested. The next day, Francisco Silva, a volunteer with the Chicago-based Organized Communities Against Deportations,
was also arrested during a bond review Friday even though an immigration judge released him on bond in 2015. And in May,
immigration officers arrested an undocumented college student just three days after he read a poem criticizing the agency.
Has More than 630,000 Illegals in the United States. Two Indians have been sent to jail for just three years
after smuggling hundreds of Indians into the United States. Hema Patel, 51, worked with Mexican coyotes and charged
$28,000 to $60,000 to bring individuals across the Canadian and Mexican borders. When the illegals were caught, she
also used her Texas bail-bonds business to spring her clients from detention, according to an ICE press release.
Blue State Gave Nearly $4 Million to Illegal Aliens In Financial Aid. When New Jersey debuted a new program
last year offering college aid to immigrants living in the country illegally, it was unclear how many undocumented students
would sign up. After a year, advocates and state official say the program has been a success. During the
2018-2019 academic year, 749 undocumented students were awarded $3.8 million in state financial aid to attend New Jersey
colleges, according to new statistics released by the state Higher Education Student Assistance Authority.
The 5.2% illegal
alien tax. A Breitbart News report ripping the New York Times — always a fun read —
revealed the true cost to American workers for allowing illegal aliens to work here. $493.9 billion annually, according to
the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. Illegal aliens lower wages by that amount. It is a
5.2% payroll reduction, a tax if you will on workers. And unlike federal income taxes that hit the 1% hardest, this
payroll tax hits lower wage workers the hardest.
Official Announces Bad News For Over 100 Countries Mooching Off America. President Trump continues to pursue an
America first agenda and that includes cutting off the endless fountain of free money to other countries. The administration
has been looking at cutting around $4 billion in foreign aid to around one hundred countries many of which routinely trash
[America] but have enjoyed their ability to leech off of U.S. taxpayers thanks to our craven politicians.
Warren, the worst of the bunch. They each advocate for open borders to all who show up, no matter from what
home country, no matter how likely they may be to be criminals. Not one of them cares about the thousands of American
citizens who are killed by illegal aliens. No, they care about only the "poor children at the border" whose parents
have either sold or rented them to drug cartels or coyotes for a price. But bleeding-heart Warren now wants to repeal
the 1994 crime bill, pushed by Joe Biden at the time, and that actually worked. For wholly mysterious reasons, Warren,
like the rest of the Left, values criminals, legal or illegal residents, over American citizens.
Cancels 'Flores Settlement': Democrats Calls It 'Cruel and Inhumane Move'. The Trump administration announced
Wednesday that its scrapping the Flores Settlement, an agreement that started 'catch and release,' which incentivized illegal
immigration and created loopholes in the system. Basically, detention centers couldn't hold family units for more than
20 days, even though it takes roughly 45 to 60 days to complete their immigration proceedings. Critics of the
Flores Settlement Agreement, which was based on the more liberal 9th circuit court ruling, have noted that the majority of family
units never make it to court once they are released into the United States. Further, the statistics show that the families
can stay up to eight years before going to court by using other loopholes in the system as an alternative to detention.
admin aims to finally END catch-and-release in game-changing regulation. The entire mass migration to our
border and all its cascading ill effects can be traced to one thing: the Flores settlement's expansion from children to
family units by a single district judge. Flores is not a constitutional provision, a statute, or even a court
ruling. It is a court settlement, designed as a temporary arrangement, that actually runs contrary to statute and has
been used as a catalyst to undermine every bedrock law of sovereignty. After a full year of dithering, the Trump
administration is finally using its unquestionable power to modify the settlement to finally end catch-and-release.
Apply for Jobs Left Open by ICE Raids in Mississippi. When the largest single ICE raid in modern history was
carried out in Morton, Mississippi earlier this month, nearly 700 jobs were left vacant after the workforce of mostly illegal
aliens were apprehended at the Koch Foods chicken processing plant. Now, several weeks later, those jobs openings are
being pursued by American citizens. According to the Clarion Ledger, over 200 have already applied for openings
at the plant through job fairs in neighboring Forest.
magic power of enforcement? Texas border crossings cut in half. Something funny begins to happen when our
government finally enforces some of our laws and sovereignty. According to weekly data from Texas' Department of Public
Safety used internally by Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and obtained by CR, 9,407 illegal aliens were apprehended
during the first week of August in Texas, a 54 percent decline since the highest weekly rate of May and June. Even
more enforcement would likely result in an even sharper decline.
The Editor says...
Yes, and an impenetrable wall would reduce illegal border crossings to zero.
climate change crisis racket. [Scroll down] Further, if we are to believe the hype around the climate
crisis, why aren't Democrats being the loudest about discouraging illegal immigration from countries with very low carbon
emissions like Guatemala and El Salvador? Democrats could easily argue that illegal immigration is bad for the
environment when they know that migrants from undeveloped nations will increase their "carbon footprints" once in America.
If the climate is really the number-one threat to humanity, that should outweigh whatever Central Americans have going on
that makes them want to escape their environmental paradises in the first place.
Illegal Workers Flee Georgia Food Plants After Mississippi ICE Raids. Illegal workers fled a number of Georgia
food processing plants this past week after highly-publicized raids by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency
at five Mississippi plants. This month, ICE agents conducted the largest workplace raid in more than a decade across
five food processing plants in Mississippi, netting the arrests of 680 illegal aliens. That same day, though, ICE
officials said they released about 300 of the illegal workers back into the U.S. on "humanitarian grounds."
Surfaces of Intentional Employment Violations by Mississippi Companies Raided by ICE. The Washington Post has
an excellent outline of the seven facilities citing dozens of instances where evidence shows each company knew they were
hiring people who were not legally eligible for work. In a surprising number of cases the illegal employees were
arrested by Border Patrol in California, Texas, New Mexico and Arizona and released on electronic-monitoring programs,
including ankle bracelets, to await court dates. According to the affidavits federal authorities tracked the GPS
locators on some of the employees and found they were illegally working in all of the facilities. During interviews
with the workers they stated how friends and family members in Mexico and Guatemala told them where to go for work in Mississippi.
Democrat Party Is A Joke That Would Cease To Exist Without The Media's Support. Consider the wide open secret
that Democrats have to lie about literally every policy aspiration they have. [...] On immigration they also claim they
simply want to "help the poor," but every single one of them wants wide open borders so they can exploit yet another group of
brown people in yet another benefits-for-loyalty scam that does nothing more than keep those brown people literally
segregated and metaphorically enslaved; beholden to the Democrat party, shackled by manufactured grievance, and with nothing
but identity-based pain and hatred where their patriotism and individual liberty would've otherwise been. Exploiting
brown people has always been the Democrat party's go-to strategy for amassing power, and "immigration" is just the 2019
version of it.
[were] rejected as paupers in [the] year [Emma Lazarus'] poem [was] added to [the] Statue of Liberty. The same
year that Emma Lazarus' poem welcoming the world's "poor" and "huddled masses" was added to the Statue of Liberty, the U.S.
government rejected 5,812 of those same new arrivals for being poor. In his annual report to Congress in 1903, U.S.
Immigration Commissioner William Williams warned that too many immigrants were "entering this country with inadequate sums of
money," leaving the system with thousands of charity cases and sinking the country's standard of living.

First, as I've noted with exhaustive research in chapter 6 of Stolen Sovereignty, in our entire history from the first
colonial-era public charge laws in Massachusetts to the laws written by the federal government in 1882, there was an ironclad
rule that immigrants should never be a burden on America. In fact, just one year before the publishing of the poem,
Congress passed the 1882 Immigration Act. The bill instructed Treasury officials to inspect immigrant ships for public
charges. "If on such examination there shall be found among such passengers any convict, lunatic, idiot, or any person
unable to take care of himself or herself without becoming a public charge ... such persons shall not be permitted to land,"
states section 2 of the act. They weren't even allowed to step foot in the country! Section 4 of the bill
required that the cost of returning public charges be "borne by the owners of the vessels in which they came."
or Leave' has Always Been U.S. Immigration Policy. The Democratic Left or DemLeft has denounced as racist
Trump's recommendation that "the Squad" of four left-wing Members of Congress go back to where they (or their ancestors) came
from if they do not like the United States. The DemLeft has doubled down on this accusation by defining the Squad as
"women of color" even though Rashida Tlaib is no more a person of color than Donald Trump. The truth is instead that
the Democratic Left has put into practice advice misattributed to Joseph Goebbels: "Accuse the other side of that which
you are guilty." The DemLeft is itself the real purveyor of divisive racial identity politics that undermine American
Nationalism; the force that has held our country together for more than 240 years and has made the United States the
greatest nation on earth.

Funding the Wicked War on ICE? An alarming shooting took place at a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
offices in San Antonio on Tuesday [8/13/2019]. Local media reported that "multiple shots were fired on two floors
targeting ICE officials." [...] The San Antonio attack comes just one month after an antifa extremist ambushed an ICE
detention facility in Tacoma, Washington, armed with a rifle and incendiary devices. The vengeful antifa gunman had
assaulted a police officer last year at the same location, received a wrist slap, and then published a manifesto that
declared: "I strongly encourage comrades and incoming comrades to arm themselves."
the Democratic Party Govern America? Recently the Democratic Party has become the party of open borders and
amnesty as well as ultimate citizenship for upwards of 22 million illegal immigrants and with open borders at least another
2-4 million more every year. The vast majority of these illegal immigrants are functionally illiterate and lacking in
employable skills. [...] The Left and the Democratic Party are now so committed to open borders and illegal immigration that
they cannot reverse course without a major upheaval within their ranks.
not racist to screen out migrants who'll be a burden. [Scroll down] Under the new rule, those who are in
the country legally will have a more difficult time obtaining green cards or gaining citizenship if they received food
stamps, housing assistance, Medicare or other public benefits. But the outrage about this rule, which is set to go into
effect in 60 days, is overblown. Even in the era of mass immigration in the 19th and early 20th centuries, those who
came here had to promise not to become a "public charge" upon the United States. That meant immigrants pledged to work
and/or could look to sponsors who would guarantee their support. The idea of restricting immigration to those who could
work is an old one. The federal Immigration Act of 1882 was the first US law to specifically insist that immigrants who
couldn't take care of themselves would be excluded.
ICE Air: Shackled deportees, air freshener and cheers. America's
one-way trip out. President Trump has pledged to expel "millions" of immigration violators, a goal that wildly
exceeds the government's abilities and the seating capacity of its aging 737s. The reality is that Trump is losing on
the ground: Since the start of the 2019 fiscal year in October, ICE has deported about 50,000 Guatemalans, but nearly
five times as many illegally crossed the border into the United States during that time, leading to a record influx of
families and children.
food plants 'willfully' employed illegal workers: fed. Federal authorities apparently had a good reason for
conducting one of the biggest immigration raids in a decade this past week. Six of the seven Mississippi food plants
that got hit by ICE agents on Wednesday were "willfully and unlawfully employing illegal aliens" — with many
working under false names and fake Social Security numbers, according to investigators. Documents unsealed Friday by
the US Attorney's Office for the Magnolia state's Southern District outline how authorities worked with confidential
informants over the span of a year to uncover the use of ineligible employees.
ICE's Mississippi Raids Are Not an Outrage. I believe that interior immigration enforcement should (and
generally does) prioritize detaining and removing illegal immigrants who have also committed violent crimes, and those who
have been deported previously. I also believe that ICE and CPB should (and generally do) attempt to execute their
duties with an eye toward compassion and humanity, particularly when children are affected. Nobody likes seeing
frightened kids crying. That being said, enforcing the law against people whose "only" crime involves breaking our
immigration statutes is not out-of-bounds. Adults who knowingly violate US sovereignty do not get a free pass to live
and work openly in America, entirely without fear of deportation.
half of all illegal immigrants nabbed in Mississippi ICE raid [were] released on 'humanitarian grounds'. Almost
half of those arrested in a mass Immigration and Customs Enforcement [ICE] roundup of illegal immigrants in Mississippi on
Wednesday have already been released, officials announced Thursday [8/8/2019]. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) arrested 680 "removable aliens" at several food processing plants in Mississippi, in what had been deemed the largest
single-state immigration enforcement operation in U.S. history.

AFL-CIO Labor Union President Richard Trumka supports the principle of illegal alien workers taking the jobs of American workers.

Arrests 680 Illegal Aliens in Largest Single-State Raid in U.S. History. The Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE) agency arrested 680 illegal aliens who had been working at seven Mississippi food processing plants,
federal officials confirmed on Wednesday [8/7/2019]. ICE agents conducted the largest single-state raid in United
States history and the largest workplace raid in the last 11 years when they arrested 680 illegal aliens at seven food
processing plants across six cities in Mississippi, [...]
More Concerned About Immigration Than Climate Change, Despite Massive Media Attention. Immigration has possibly
caused more fractious discord at the heart of the European Union than any other topic apart from Brexit, and it is a
preoccupation shared by the citizens of Europe who say it is the most important issue facing the EU in 2019. The
European Commission's Eurobarometer survey, a twice-annually inquiry into the opinions of over 27,000 Europeans asked people
in 33 countries what their main concerns were for the European Union, and found worries over immigration to be the clear
winner. Some 34 percent of Europeans said immigration was one of their top concerns in 2019, putting the issue
comfortably ahead of the competition for another year.
sob-story Lady Frijoles is off the hook for assault charges and partying hearty back in Honduras. The press, in
San Diego at least, is making a big deal about a Honduran migrant who as part of the 'remain in Mexico' program has won
asylum in the U.S., while the U.S., wickedly enough, wants to appeal that ruling. [...] Bad, bad U.S. for wanting to keep
someone out who won't bother to apply legally to come here, and for that matter, can't seem to make a go of things in Mexico,
either. The NGOs are all over this one, thinking they have the perfect wedge for allowing millions of unvetted migrants
in now because this one looks so camera-genic and his story is so perfect for winning Evangelical Christians over to their
side. U.S. opposition is likely based on the thinking that this is another abuser of the asylum system.
Why? Because it's so common. And how are those cases going?

The accelerating Scramble for America, in which the world's 7.5 billion pre-Americans stake their claim to the USA, offers
numerous benefits for American elites, such as lower wages to pay, higher prices for their property, more pliable voters, and
greater opportunities to trade visas to foreigners in return for meddling abroad. From the Beltway perspective, the
only problem is that America's current voters don't much see what's in it for them from immigration, other than more ethnic
restaurants. Although this basic logic is hushed up, Americans more or less understand that they benefit from owning a
vast country that is still relatively lightly populated compared with, say, India or Nigeria.
agents detain 680 illegal immigrants at 7 Mississippi worksites. Homeland Security agents descended upon
several sites Wednesday [8/7/2019] in Mississippi, including Peco Foods in Canton. "After speaking with the agents, I
now know that they are identifying illegal immigrants, versus those who are legal, and rounding them up, putting them in
buses and carrying them away," said Canton Mayor William Truly.
let loose 218,400 migrant 'family members' into the US since December. The federal Homeland Security agency
tasked with removing people illegally present in the country has released a couple hundred thousand immigrant families into
the interior of the United States since late December, according to data obtained by the Washington Examiner.
Those let loose will not be subject to deportation, at least not until after a hearing they are supposed to attend that is
ungrateful migrant creates a new 'narrative' for ingratitude. Rep. Ilhan Omar was just an opening
act. Now, another ungrateful migrant has come out of the woodwork to tell us how awful we are and how ingratitude for
being allowed to come here is the rightful state for migrants. Calcutta-born Suketu Mehta, a bitter revanchist who
would have been ripped to shreds as a fourth-rate, fourth world 'intellectual' by V.S. Naipaul (too bad he's not alive) puts
forth the argument in the Washington Post that immigration is a reparation. His piece is titled 'I am an uppity
immigrant. Don't expect me to be grateful." Based on what he says, it's clear he views migration to the U.S. as an
entitlement solely because America is so very, very bad — and as a lagniappe, because he's so very, very good.
candidates have embraced four ideas that could end America as we know it. [#2] Decriminalizing Border Crossings
and Healthcare for Illegal Immigrants: As shocking as it may seem, just saying that the Democratic Party is in favor of
open borders doesn't give you the full sense of how bad the Party is on this issue. That's because not only do they
want the borders to be open, they're looking for ways to incentivize more illegal aliens to break our laws. During the
June 27th Democratic debate, the candidates were asked if their healthcare plans covered illegal immigrants. Every
single hand on the stage went up — and keep in mind that as a practical matter, what that means is that American
citizens will be paying even higher premiums to provide "free" healthcare to illegals that can't afford it. During that
same debate, 8 out of the 10 candidates on the stage supported decriminalizing crossing the border illegally.
refuse to help fix border crisis because bashing Trump is more fun. Now that Democrats have stopped calling the
untenable situation at America's southern border a "manufactured crisis" and recognized it as a "humanitarian crisis,"
perhaps a bipartisan solution can be found to at least one aspect of the problem: the continuing flow of unaccompanied
children across the border. But we shouldn't hold our breath. The left — activists, the media and Dem
politicians — are more interested in badgering the Trump administration than solving the crisis.
Ron Wyden Escorts 8 1/2 Months Pregnant Mexican Woman and Her Family Across Border Into US. Sen. Ron Wyden
(D-OR) posted a video Saturday bragging about how he had escorted an eight-and-a-half months pregnant migrant from Mexico
into the U.S. because the woman allegedly was having a difficult pregnancy. Wyden does not tell viewers that the woman
is a Mexican citizen and that she brought her husband and 3-year-old son with her across the border. Apparently there
are no competent maternity hospitals in Mexico.
The Editor says...
There may be hospitals in Mexico, but they don't offer free U.S. citizenship with every birth.
People Roast Trump
And Then Find Out It Was Obama. People told the Daily Caller News Foundation what they thought of quotes
President Donald Trump said regarding immigration, except it was actually former President Barack Obama who said them.
"That is our direct message to families in central America: Do not send your children to the border. If they do
make it, they'll get sent back, more importantly, they might not make it," Obama said in 2014. He also said in 2009,
"You are gonna pay a significant fine, you are going to learn English, you are going to go to the back of the line so that
you don't get ahead of somebody applying legally, but after you've done these things over a certain period of time you can
earn your citizenship."
Illegally Entering Guatemalans Aren't Fleeing Violence, They Want To Make More Money. A report this week in the
Wall Street Journal chronicles the border crisis at one of its sources, a city in Guatemala that's emptying out as families
leave for the United States, and leaves little doubt that what's motivating most of them to leave isn't violence or
persecution, but economic opportunity. The focus of the story is the mountainous city of Joyabaj, "population 100,000
and falling." The United States has deported 627 people to Joyabaj in the first six months of this year, more than any
other municipality in the country except Guatemala City, population 2.5 million, which saw 643 deportees from the United States
over the same period.
Democratic Party has become
a Continuing Criminal Enterprise. In cooperation with Democrat-aligned Federal Judges, and with the complicity
of multiple outlets of the liberal media, the Democrat Party continues to act to block and delay efforts by the Federal
Government to prohibit and interdict the illegal entry of persons into the United States from Mexico. An unknown number
of those persons pose a clear and present physical danger to America's citizenry. Facilitating the entry of criminals
into the U.S. is, on its face, a criminal enterprise.
Cartel Recruitment of Young Teens On Rise near Texas Border. The Gulf Cartel is actively recruiting local teens
since young offenders are not sent to prison and only spend a few weeks in a juvenile center if arrested. Some
defendants are not old enough to legally drive. Tamaulipas authorities are noticing a spike in the number of teen
offenders arrested in Ciudad Victoria for various crimes on behalf of the Gulf Cartel. A law enforcement official who
spoke with Breitbart News on the condition of anonymity said that when underage offenders are arrested, they are sent to a
minimum-security juvenile center and are back on the streets in mere days.
in Mexico" Policy Appears to Be Working. The New York Times is crediting President Donald Trump's last
set of policy tries for — at long last — a precipitous drop in illegal immigration from Central
America. Specifically, the newspaper cited a highly deterring double play by Mexico, prompted by President Trump's
arm-twisting. One credited play was Trump's "Remain in Mexico" policy, formally called the Migrant Protection
Protocols, where U.S. immigration authorities send asylum claimants to wait for their hearings in Mexican cities like Juarez
rather than the incentivizing prospect of waiting inside the United States, where they can count on living for years
illegally if their claims fail. The incentive of living in the United States illegally evidently has been turned off
because failure of claims means the migrants instead have to live in Mexico and will not join America's swollen population
of illegal millions who can't be effectively tracked down and deported.
extradition of illegals to begin today and the open borders crowd is apoplectic. The Trump administration is
today implementing a strategy that's been in planning for two years to relieve crowding at detention centers, deal with the
backlog at immigration courts, and rapidly increase the tempo of deportations of illegal aliens. Predictably, the open
borders crowd is appalled, and the ACLU is planning to launch a lawsuit, no doubt before a leftist judge appointed by Obama
and Clinton to stymie the move. But this has been planned for two years, and it looks as though their efforts will play
into the president's hands as the 2020 election approaches.
Trump Administration Will Let ICE Officials Deport Certain Immigrants Much Faster. The Trump administration
will dramatically expand the ability of immigration authorities to rapidly deport certain immigrants, according to a federal
notice posted Monday [7/22/2019]. The administration announced on the Federal Register that it plans to expand expedited
removal — quick deportations — to those who cannot prove they have been in the country continuously for
two years. The new measure will apply to the entire country.
to expand speedy deportations across the country. Homeland Security announced an aggressive new policy Monday [7/22/2019]
to fast-track deportations of recent immigrants caught in the living in the U.S. illegally, looking to expand a tool that's been used
successfully at the border for years. Expedited removal allows immigration officers to order a deportation without the extensive
immigration court proceedings and appeals that accompany other removals. For years, it's been applied to immigrants caught within
100 miles of the border who illegally entered in recent weeks.
Moderate Democrats Turned Off by Party's 2020 Open Borders Agenda. The Democrat Party's open borders, mass
immigration platform for the upcoming 2020 presidential election is turning off moderate Democrat voters, a new poll
reveals. For months now, Democrats running in the presidential primary have largely presented platforms promoting
amnesty for all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens, free health care for illegal aliens, and the decriminalization
of illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border. This open borders agenda, spearheaded by a select group
of white liberals in the party's ranks, is causing a rift among Democrats.
Trump's New Asylum Rules Stem the Illegal Tide? Illegal immigration numbers remain at levels triple that of
previous years, and Congress continues to bicker, foot stomp, other otherwise ignore the problem. In the face of this,
the Trump Administration released its latest attempt to bring the border crisis under control. Under new rules issued
last week, migrants will now be required to seek asylum in at least one country they pass through on their way north.
In other words, to qualify for asylum in the United States, Hondurans and Salvadorans would first have to apply for —
and be denied — asylum in Guatemala or Mexico. The response from critics was predictable. [...] None of them,
however, acknowledged a key feature of the new rules: they put the United States in compliance with exactly the way the
rest of the world handles the flow of refugees between borders.
It's the cartels,
stupid! To obtain asylum, a migrant must establish a credible fear of persecution or harm on account of the
migrant's race, religion, nationality, membership in a social group or political opinion. Migrants have not been
deterred, however, from making the dangerous trek to America because they know that if you can get here, especially with a
minor in tow, you will in short order be released into the country and have a couple of years before you see an immigration
judge. This reality has created a powerful magnet, not only for those facing economic hardship, but also for thugs
eager to make a buck. And therein you find the culprits who deserve much blame.
of violent migrants storm Texas bridge punching, kicking and rushing border patrol officers. U.S. Customs and
Border Protection (CBP) agents were punched and kicked by a violent horde of 50 illegal immigrants who tried to sneak across
the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas yesterday [7/20/2019]. A CBP official says the agents had to use tear gas and pepper
spray to curb the mob rampage when gangs of illegals rushed the Rio Grande bridge in three separate waves at 4 a.m. local
time. "Ignoring commands to stop, the group suddenly rushed the temporary barricades, bent metal poles and disabled the
concertina wire affixed to the barrier," the official told Fox News.
The Editor says...
It's time to escalate to Level Two: The razor wire should have about 3,000 volts on it, pulsing like a stun gun.
When dejected "refugees" limp back to Honduras with burned hands and fingers, the word will get out, believe me. If necessary,
the border can be strengthened and fortified to match any invading force.
African Migrants [have been] Apprehended in One Border Sector Since May 30. Border Patrol agents assigned to the
Del Rio Sector apprehended more than 1,100 migrants from multiple countries in Africa since May 30. The migrants
present unique problems for Border Patrol agents who must care for their health and safety. "The apprehension of people from
African countries illegally crossing our borders continues to increase," Del Rio Sector Chief Patrol Agent Raul L. Ortiz said
in a written statement. "Our agents this year have encountered people from 51 countries other than Mexico including
19 countries from the continent of Africa."
immigrants try to rush into US in 'waves,' spark showdown with CBP agents. One of the biggest ports of entry
along the US-Mexico border had to be shut down on Friday [7/19/2019] after a group of undocumented immigrants —
nearly 50 of them — attempted to rush into the United States in "waves," according to federal officials. The
mad dash went down at the Pharr International Bridge in Texas at about 4 a.m., officials said, and sparked a showdown with
Customs and Border Protection agents. "A group of 47 undocumented individuals attempted to illegally enter the United
States in three waves," the agency said in a statement, according to KGBT.
Left Goals: Abolishing
Citizenship. While claiming fealty to the United States, the Democrats have all but proudly declared they are
for open borders and against the rights and interests of American citizens. They have reached a consensus that American
citizenship is a meaningless abstraction and an unearned privilege that effectively must be abolished — if not by
law, then by ignoring the existence and unique rights of American citizens qua citizens. Peel back the sentimental
platitudes (does anyone really think families shouldn't stay together?) and the Democrats' take on immigration reveals a
profound betrayal. They are more concerned with the welfare of illegal immigrants than with that of the citizens of the
country they were elected to serve.
Congressional Expulsions Are in Order. There isn't anything unjust about our border laws. A sovereign
nation has an unalienable right to enforce its border laws and know exactly who each human being is, irrespective of
age, sex, and country of origin. [...] Illegals having rights is farcical to begin with. I'm not an attorney, but this
is likely suborning on the part of these Democrats; regardless, it's a dereliction of their constitutional duties, and
expulsion proceedings should commence immediately.
Left is following Communism's playbook for revolution. This process continues and is manifested in the
widespread antipathy for sexual propriety, faith, and all that is great and good — and in the lust for perversion,
socialism, feminism, multiculturalism, "transgenderism," and anti-Americanism in general. We see it in the tearing down
of statues; removal of long present Christian symbols; leftist propaganda and decadence in schools and entertainment;,
prioritizing of illegal aliens over citizens; revising of American history and impugning of whites; and in attacks on the
Constitution, the Founding Fathers, and all things traditional. This destabilization of the American mind and moral
compass now has begotten, as it must, societal destabilization. This is reflected in, most obviously, the flooding of
our nation with unassimilable foreigners via a purposely porous border. This serves the Cloward-Piven goal of
overloading the system to cause breakdown, necessitating replacement of it with, the theory goes, a socialist one.
Of course, this human flood strains schools, hospitals, and services and resources in general.
I saw when I visited the border. The situation is dire. Smuggling cartels tell lies about instant asylum
and open borders and have drawn migrants by the hundreds of thousands to border stations near McAllen and El Paso in Texas,
along with other crossings along the Rio Grande. It isn't until they arrive that migrants discover the truth: applying
for legal entry into the United States is a long, confusing process. There are rules — and the line started
forming years ago.
Lutherans for Open Borders Now! 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 court hearings. Brazen hatred of cops, Border Patrol
and ICE agents were on full display at the open borders protests fronted by LIRS and other left-wing groups, including Code
Pink, CASA and CAIR.
Majority of Mexicans Supports Deportation of Central American Migrants. A slight majority of Mexican citizens
supports the deportation of Central American migrants who travel through Mexico to reach the U.S. border, according to a
survey released Wednesday [7/17/2019]. The survey, which was conducted by the Mexican newspaper Reforma and the
Washington Post, found that six in ten Mexicans believe the migrants have burdened the native population by claiming
jobs and benefits that would otherwise accrue to Mexican citizens. A 55 percent majority supports deporting the
migrants before they reach the U.S.
pour in from Mexico as [the] Border Patrol [is] forced to focus on migrants. Border Patrol highway checkpoints
in the southern New Mexico region that normally seize seven figures of worth of drugs annually have not seized a dollar in
nearly four months after being shuttered in late March, allowing drugs to flood into the country. Meantime, with the
added supply, prices for illicit drugs are dropping precipitously. Those seven checkpoints have sat unattended after
Border Patrol closed them to move all personnel to the border to assist with apprehending, processing, and caring for the
high number of migrant families arriving.
American Left Is Racist, Not President Trump. It is not racist to point out that mass immigration of unskilled
people who are overwhelmingly non-white will result in social and cultural turmoil, especially so long as the entire culture
is now geared towards teaching them a leftist lie that they are victims of white oppression.
Shift From Supporting Legal Immigration To Urging Open Defiance Of U.S. Laws. Far from a mass roundup, ICE's
responsibility was to find approximately 2,000 illegal immigrants. Nor were the targets randomly chosen to inspire
terror among illegally present foreigners or to display a sign of the administration's lawless lust for retribution against
those who break immigration laws. With a population of 11 million illegal immigrants and some estimates saying as many
as 1 million of them are already under court order to leave after receiving due process, the arrest of every one of those on
the current list couldn't even be counted as a drop in the bucket for dealing with the problem. Moreover, those chosen
had already been through the long, tedious process by which the government is forced to prove its case in immigration
courts. All have already been ordered out of the country after they had a chance to make their case to be able to stay
or even to claim asylum. All of them had broken federal law, received their day in court, and had received court
documents telling them they must leave the country.
Raids Will Force Long-Needed National Immigration Debate. Americans' steadfast adherence to the rule of law
separates the United States from almost every other country, even other free societies. There is nothing more contrary
to the rule of law, however, than the current lack of control over our southern border, across which thousands now pass
illegally every day.
Trump Highlights Democrat Activist Hypocrisy — Flee to America, and Demand We Change it. Earlier
today President Trump drew attention to another uncomfortable truth. Some of the most virulent anti-American progressive
lawmakers entered the United States for the opportunity and freedom within our system. However, those same politicians
then decry the U.S. and demand changes to the system providing the benefit. In essence, do not flee to the land of liberty,
indulge in the benefits and then have the audacity to criticize the foundation of the nation providing the opportunity.
chief blames Congress for horrific migrant shelter conditions. Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of U.S.
Citizenship and Immigration Services, placed the blame squarely on Congress for the deplorable conditions described at a
border station by reporters traveling Friday with Vice President Mike Pence. "First of all it's shameful for Congress,"
Cuccinelli told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday. "And we can prove it. Because last month, when they were willing to
address this same problem for children we succeeded in addressing it in one month." Cuccinelli said lawmakers needed to
allocate more money to go toward Immigration and Customs Enforcement detention beds.
Carnivores and Cannibals. Obama once protested that he was no king who could open the border and grant
amnesties by fiat. Yet his view of immigration has metamorphosed well beyond DACA and Dreamers into Democratic
candidates going into Mexico to escort aliens unlawfully into our country, and 500 sanctuary jurisdictions in which federal
immigration law is all but null and void. An American citizen convicted of using a fake Social Security Number and
phony ID is a felon who is all but unemployable; an illegal alien who commits the same crimes learns quickly that these are
not deportable offenses and mostly never prosecuted.
Reps dish up food to migrants waiting to cross border illegally. Democrat members of the U.S. House of
Representatives spent part of their Saturday fueling up migrants waiting to illegally cross America's southern border.

DC Illegal Immigration Business. There is no greater disconnect from ordinary Americans on any singular issue
than the policy positions of Democrats and Republicans in Washington DC surrounding illegal immigration. President
Donald Trump is confronting their unified interests. Massive illegal immigration is supported by both sides of the
professional political machine. There are few issues more unifying for the K-Street purchased voices of DC politicians
than keeping the U.S. borders open and the influx of illegal aliens as high as possible. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce
pays politicians to keep this system in place.
ICE deportation raids
underway in New York City, 'number of jurisdictions,' official says. A nationwide crackdown to apprehend thousands
of illegal immigrants across the country began late Saturday [7/13/2019] in the nation's largest city and several other places,
according to an official. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) resumed its previously announced plan to apprehend
thousands of illegal immigrants who've been given orders to leave the country, targeting people in at least 10 cities.
The ICE raids began late Saturday and into the early morning hours on Sunday in "a number of jurisdictions," not just New York City,
a senior administration official confirmed to Fox News.
requests overwhelm US immigration system: A look at the numbers. An explosion in asylum requests from
immigrants facing deportation has overwhelmed U.S. courts and denial of the requests does little to keep illegal immigrants
out, according to federal statistics. Thousands of migrants are hoping to seek asylum, even though experts say they
have poor cases and little chance of gaining the status. But that has not stopped hundreds of thousands (possibly
millions) of asylum seekers from landing permanently in the U.S., where they live as illegal immigrants, experts say.
Still Don't Seem To Understand Latino Voters Aren't Obsessed With Illegal Immigration. Democrats seem to think
railing against how illegal immigrants are treated is a winning issue with Latino voters — as if every Latino in
America came here illegally. It's a pretty brazen assumption, and one the Left is not called out on. It now
appears as though the Left is just starting to learn that Latino voters care about other things — things all
Americans care about: healthcare, the economy, and education.
Guatemala May Build 'Legal Wall' Against Migrants. President Donald Trump's deputies may soon finalize a "safe
third country" deal with Guatemala that would allow U.S. border officials to legally block most migrants from even applying
for asylum, according to the New Yorker magazine. The Guatemala deal would create a legal wall on the U.S.
border that would prevent migrants from asking for asylum or getting released into the United States, according to the outlet.
Deporting Illegal Aliens Saves Americans Billions in Tax Dollars. Deporting the roughly 11 to 22 million
illegal aliens living across the United States saves American taxpayers hundreds of billions in public costs, analysis finds.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is expected to conduct a mass deportation effort next week, where at least 2,000
illegal aliens who have final orders for removal will be arrested, detained, and deported from the U.S.
When Mexico enforces its
own laws, immigration drops. 'We're holding a gun to our own heads,' said Sen. John Cornyn in June.
He was talking about President Trump's threat to impose tariffs in order to force Mexico to crack down on illegal immigration
into the Unites States. Many congressmen agreed, fearing, as establishment figures are prone to do, that Trump was
risking the whole economy for some nebulous border demand. A month later, it seems Trump's tariff gambit has
worked. After Mexican officials agreed to crack down on illegal immigration to avoid US-imposed tariffs, the Department
of Homeland Security reports that border apprehensions dropped from 144,278 in May to 104,344 in June — a 28 percent
decrease. Some have attributed the drop to warmer weather, not the 20,000 Mexican National Guardsmen sent to the country's
borders with the US and Guatemala. It couldn't possibly be that Trump's plan worked, surely not.
People Avoid Justice': Border Patrol Union President Reacts to Clinton's Advice to Illegal Aliens. National
Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd blasted Hillary Clinton for publicly coaching illegal immigrants on how to avoid
apprehension from Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents. "I'm amazed that somebody ... that ran for president of
the United States — that was willing to promise to uphold the laws of the United States, the Constitution of the
United States — is now actively helping people avoid justice," Judd, who leads the Border Patrol's union of nearly
20,000 members, said Friday [7/12/2019] on Fox News.

borders." A perfect sound bite for Trump, and one can almost hear the video clips getting their snips and edits for the
upcoming television ads. You'd think he'd be smarter than that, but well, this is Joe Biden. No borders?
None at all? [...] That's not gonna go down well with the U.S. public, based on polls showing repeated support for a rational
expectation of rule of the law at the border. The actual context of the speech isn't precisely on the matter of
illegals, but rest assured, Democratic lockstep opposition to any rule of law at the border makes it clear that this is one
thing that Joe's vision includes.
out, Trump didn't give up on counting both legal and illegal US residents. You've probably heard a lot
overnight about President Trump backing down on trying to get a citizenship question on the census questionnaire next
year. Perhaps you too were surprised that this president who takes on even meaningless slights or disagreements on
Twitter would give up so easily. He didn't.
to Begin Deporting Thousands of Illegal Aliens Across 10 Cities This Week. ICE officials will begin the

Two thousand? That's all? That's just background noise.
border troubles are going to get a lot worse. Word is spreading worldwide, even to sub-Saharan Africa, that the
US has an open southern border and an open checkbook. This summer, thousands of Africans from Cameroon, Congo and other
violence-plagued countries are forming caravans, preparing to cross our southern border, according to Customs and Border
Protection reports. Border agents from the Del Rio area of Texas sounded the alarm on May 31 about a group of 116
African migrants. The agents provided photos of women with babies strapped to their backs and young men in T-shirts and
gym shorts sitting on the US side of the Rio Grande, waiting to be arrested. Then, in early June, agents in Eagle Pass,
Texas, detained another group of Central African families. Agents said they were startled to see so many "immigrants
from countries not normally encountered." In all, more than 500 Africans in a single week crossed the Del Rio border
zone. Late in June, agents arrested yet another 310 mostly Haitian and African migrants.
Promises to Import at Least 700 Percent More Refugees to U.S.. Democrat presidential primary candidate Sen. Elizabeth
Warren (D-MA) is promising to import at least 700 percent more foreign refugees into the United States if she becomes president.
In her national immigration plan released this week, Warren broke from her economic patriotism agenda wherein she has committed to
holding multinational corporations accountable for outsourcing American jobs overseas and shifting to a permanent nationalist trade
policy that puts the needs of American workers first.
those ICE raids are being announced in advance. Starting Sunday [7/14/2019], Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
is expected to resume its previously announced plan to apprehend thousands of illegal immigrants across the country. [...] So why are
the raids being publicized days in advance? "It's unprecedented. But there is a political purpose behind it," Thomas
Kilbride, a retired Department of Homeland Security (DHS) agent and ICE policy adviser, told Fox News. He said the president
has tried to get Democrats to come to the table because asylum laws need to change, and this is a way to bargain.
immigration enforcement is abandoning our system of government. Trying to actually deport illegal immigrants
whom courts have ordered deported is now considered authoritarian. Ken Cuccinelli, a top official at the Department of
Homeland Security, made clear that he intended to follow through on President Trump's plans to remove foreigners in the
United States illegally for whom final removal orders have been issued. Cuccinelli said this on national TV on Sunday
[7/7/2019], and told reporters Wednesday that these operations "absolutely" were going forward.
Are They On? The Southern border is a litmus test: do they believe that the United States has a right to
exist as a sovereign nation, or don't they? For many Democrats, the answer evidently is No. That goes for all of the
Democratic presidential contenders: I believe all of them have signed on to the notion of free medical care (along with
many other welfare benefits, of course) for illegal aliens. This isn't exactly treason — a word that is
thrown around much too often these days — but it certainly amounts to selling out the interests of American
citizens. A startling example of the Democrats' disregard of the interests of American citizens is Congresswoman
Veronica Escobar, who reportedly has sent her aides to Mexico to help illegal immigrants game the asylum system by pretending
that they don't speak Spanish. Why, exactly, would an important member of our government, accountable to the citizens
of the United States, do this?
Adheres To The Law On Immigration, Shocking Lawless Democrats. The plan to deport about one million illegal
aliens announced by Acting United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Ken Cuccinelli is not a matter
of discretion. Cuccinelli is just following the law, and already issued court orders. Those subject to deportation
under the plan have already had their cases adjudicated in the United States, with immigration judges ruling they have lost
their cases, and ordering them deported. Cuccinelli is just the first federal official, besides President Trump, brave
enough to follow and implement the law.
Tips Off Illegals on Sunday's Rumored Deportation Raids — Gives 'Legal Advice' on How to Evade ICE Agents.
The New York Times reported Thursday [7/11/2019] that the massive deportation operation President Trump delayed two weeks ago will
be deployed this Sunday. Trump's deportation operation is targeting illegals who already have deportation orders, yet
Democrat leaders are giving them advice on how to evade ICE agents!
What's The Mystery Behind The Sharp Drop Of Arrivals On The Southern Border? Well, here's a clever whodunit
from the Paper of Record. Whatever might be the cause of a sudden drop in border crossings? What could it possibly
be? [...] In other words, Donald Trump's get-tough policies have had their desired impact. No wonder the Gray Lady
waited until the twelfth paragraph to mention it. In fact, eighteen thousands asylum seekers were sent back into Mexico
last month, which might have sent a clear message to others not to bother with the trip for just economic reasons. At the
moment, they won't even have court dates until October to resolve asylum applications, and historically less than ten percent
of those will qualify anyway.
desperate Beto O'Rourke goes for broke, claims America was founded on white supremacy. A failing campaign makes
a man desperate, and Beto O'Rourke surely is a desperate man. The former Texas congressman was asked this week at
roundtable event featuring immigrant and refugee participants to explain how President O'Rourke would fight white supremacy
in the United States. "I know this from my home state, Texas, places that formed the Confederacy, that this country was
founded on white supremacy," the poorly polling 2020 Democratic primary candidate responded. He added, "And every
single institution and structure that we have in this country still reflects the legacy of slavery and segregation and Jim
Crow and suppression, even in our democracy." Remember: O'Rourke was addressing immigrants and refugees.
Welcome to America, you idiots.
other border crisis: Exhausted agents hanging on by a thread. Beyond the humanitarian and security
catastrophe unfolding at the southern border, there is a another crisis few know about. Migrants have been the focus of
the border crisis for months, and with good reason. More than 700,000 people have been taken into custody by Customs
and Border Protection (CBP) personnel at and between ports of entry in the first nine months of fiscal 2019, more than the
previous 12 months.
on Migrants from the World Over to Exploit U.S. Immigration Laws. Word is spreading worldwide — even
as far as sub-Saharan Africa — that the U.S. has an open southern border and an open checkbook. This summer,
thousands of Africans from Cameroon, Congo, and other violence-plagued countries are forming caravans and preparing to cross
our southern border. Border agents from the Del Rio area of Texas sounded the alarm on May 31 about a group of 116
African migrants. Agents provided photos of women with babies strapped to their backs and young men in T-shirts and gym
shorts sitting on the U.S. side of the Rio Grande waiting to be arrested. Then, in early June, agents in Eagle Pass,
Texas detained another group of Central African families. Agents said they were startled to see so many "immigrants
from countries not normally encountered." All in all, more than 500 Africans in a single week crossed the Del Rio border
zone. Late in June, agents arrested yet another 310 mostly Haitian and African migrants.
Majority of Americans Want Mass Deportations of Illegal Aliens Following Congressional Inaction. A majority of
Americans want mass deportations of illegal aliens if Congress fails to reach a deal this week that closes loopholes in the
country's asylum system that allow mass flows of foreign nationals to pour through the U.S.-Mexico border. The latest
Harvard/Harris poll finds that 51 percent of American voters say they support mass deportations of the 11 million to
22 million illegal aliens living in the U.S. should Congress fail to reach a deal that closes loopholes in the asylum system.
federal inmates are immigrants, mostly Mexican. One-fifth of all federal prison inmates are not U.S citizens,

Omar: We Should Debate Whether To Eliminate All Border And Immigration Enforcement Agencies. Rep. Ilhan
Omar (D-MN) has said almost every terrible thing under the sun. She's peddled anti-Semitic tropes. She's rooted against
our troops during our intervention in Somalia in the early 1990s. She's failed miserably to identify that those who committed
the 9/11 attacks were radical Muslim terrorists, instead, she trivialized this heinous act as one where "some people did something."
So, when she thinks that we should have open borders, sadly, it's not as shocking as some of the other trash she's spewed [i]n recent months.
criminals among us: inside the quiet effort to prosecute and deport violators disguised as refugees. They could
be your Uber driver or the security guard at a local airport. The elderly neighbor living next door or the operator of
the neighborhood ice cream shop. They came to the United States from all corners of the globe — Somalia,
Rwanda, El Salvador, the Balkans, Germany, Iraq — claiming to have been persecuted. In reality, they were
the persecutors. For decades, war criminals have lived alongside those they tortured or displaced. Under the
guise of being a refugee, they've sought new lives in America. But quiet efforts are underway to expose and punish as
many of these hidden offenders as possible — and ensure none find a lasting haven in the U.S.
Build the Wall
to Save Central America. What is suggested is usually that we should do something to improve conditions in
Central America, specifically El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala, the benighted lands from whence the constant migrant
caravans are emanating. (Some are coming from Africa now, but the numbers are still small.) That way, it is
reasoned, the families would want to stay home. Good idea on the face of it, but the method being proposed —
foreign aid — is almost always a failure. In fact, due to corruption and other non-politically correct
factors, it's very much the reverse. This isn't original thinking on my part; it's pretty well known.
ICE Ready to Deport Approximately 1M Illegal Aliens with Final Deportation Orders. Acting United States
Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Director Ken Cuccinelli says the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)
agency is ready to deport about a million illegal aliens who remain in the country despite having final orders for
deportation. During an interview with CBS News on Sunday [7/7/2019], Cuccinelli said despite a delay of mass
deportations by President Trump two weeks ago, ICE agents are ready to detain and deport the roughly one million illegal
aliens who have been ordered deported from the country.

shameless at border. The Democratic Party's position on immigration is most recently personified in 2020
presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, who tweeted this week about his trip across the border to help five
migrant women with their asylum claims. The thread is light on details as to whether or not these women actually have
valid legal claims to asylum in the United States, and heavy on unsubstantiated and dramatic details of the cruelty of the
process at the American border. What Booker and the rest of his party refuse to acknowledge is that the process is made
more cruel by a system that is being overused, abused and stretched to the breaking point by a massive increase of spurious
claims and illegal crossings.
Immigration is central issue,
few in Washington have wherewithal to solve it. Federal immigration policy is key to the current struggle at
the border. What is secure. What's not. Who the U.S. should admit. Who it shouldn't. Major
questions loom as to what's going on in Central America. Many lawmakers are questioning what "draws" migrants to cross
into the U.S. illegally — prompting debates over detention conditions, health and the care of children.
That's to say nothing about the expense. Immigration — and particularly perceptions about illegal
immigration — is what sparked the recent Supreme Court fight about a prospective citizenship question on next
year's census forms.
Haitian Migrants [have been] Apprehended Since June 10 at [the] Texas Border. Del Rio Sector Border Patrol

Officials in the Del Rio Sector located on the Central Texas border with Mexico report the apprehension of more than 1,000

Trump Tells Migrants,
If You Don't Like Our Detention Centers Stay Home. President Donald Trump, facing renewed criticism from
Democrats and activists over his handling of a migrant crisis on the U.S.- Mexico border, said in a Twitter post on Wednesday
that immigrants unhappy with conditions at detention centers should be told "not to come." Democratic lawmakers and
civil rights activists who have visited migrant detention centers along the border in recent days have described nightmarish
conditions marked by overcrowding and inadequate access to food, water and other basic needs.
DHS Sec: Dem POTUS Candidates Pushing 'Unwise,' 'Unworkable' Plans for 'Open Borders'. Jeh Johnson, former

hopeful crossed the El Paso, Texas, port of entry into Ciudad Juarez with immigrant rights attorneys and advocates to get
five women fleeing domestic violence admitted into the U.S. after they had been sent back to Mexico. "These women had
really horrific stories," Booker told reporters in El Paso. "They are survivors of sexual violence, attacks. They
are being preyed upon. They have legitimate fears. This policy that we have, what it's doing is pushing people
who are already vulnerable back into a dangerous situation."

The women who come to the U.S. with an assortment of pathetic anecdotes about their mistreatment put themselves in danger by
making the trip, and probably would have been much safer if they had stayed home.
ICE issues notices of fines to illegal aliens. President Trump signed an executive order in 2017, not long
after taking office, to enforce civil penalties against illegal aliens to beef up efforts to hold them accountable, as well
as those who assist them by providing sanctuary. Penalties began being assessed by federal officials in December 2018
and the process is progressing to the step of notifying those involved. That includes illegal aliens seeking sanctuary
in churches to avoid deportation. These fines are nothing new, though rarely issued in the past. To read some
reporting on the enforcement by the current administration, you would not know that. President Clinton signed on to
fining illegal immigrants during his presidency. The fines were reduced later and during Obama's administration, he
implemented a more lax policy that allowed those here illegally to remain safe from deportation as long as they broke no

blocked a Trump administration policy that would keep thousands of asylum-seekers locked up while they pursue their cases,

begins returning migrants seeking asylum in U.S.. The Mexican government on Tuesday [7/2/2019] began busing
dozens of Central American migrants to their native countries, after they'd been forced to wait in Mexico while their U.S.
asylum claims are being processed. The 69 migrants from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador were bused from Ciudad
Juárez Tuesday morning as the first group to participate in the Mexican government's "temporary program of voluntary
return," the National Migration Institution said in a statement.
DHS chief: Dem candidates' immigration plans are "tantamount to declaring publicly that we have open
borders". This feels like a Republican debating point come to life. You can imagine Trump saying,
"Democrats have moved so far left on immigration, even the Obama people would be shocked!" But it's not a
hypothetical. The Obama people, specifically the head of Homeland Security under O, are actually shocked
at how nutty their party has become on this issue in just a few years.

She found out that, yes, things are, like, really, really, bad! No one should be surprised that detention centers for illegal immigrants

people. There simply isn't enough space and there aren't enough border agents to manage the inflow.
are Determined to Leave America Borderless. The Democrats continue to refuse to provide the funding for DHS to
address the border crisis that exists along the dangerous and highly porous U.S./Mexican border while complaining about the

designed to handle the number of aliens currently being housed within their over-crowded confines.

toting luggage and backpacks with their children in tow.
Apprehensions Nosedive After President Trump's Mexico Deal. Apprehensions on the southern border have
plummeted, following President Trump's historic deal with Mexico. According to leaked Department of Homeland Security
data, apprehensions at the southern border dropped by 25-percent between May and June. This drop was corroborated by
acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan on Friday, who attributed the change to President Trump's
deal with Mexico in June. The deal called on Mexican officials to do more to stop the flow of illegal migration to the
U.S. southern border.
El Salvadoran president says his country, not US, to blame for migrant deaths at border. The new president of

where migration is "an option, not an obligation."

voting is abridgment (of our votes) too far. The Fourteenth Amendment, which spells out the basic qualifications for being
eligible to vote in U.S. elections, contains references to both citizens and persons in the United States. This provides adequate
justification for determining which persons are citizens. (Justice Roberts doesn't seem to agree. On the other hand, it
doesn't matter if the question is on the Census or not because illegals can just lie, as they did about seeking asylum.) What
will be important and even crucial is to have a way to determine if a given person is a citizen at voting time. [...] The
reference to "right to vote" is limited not to protecting your right to go through the process of casting a vote, but to having the
vote be fully counted, not just enumerated. When your vote is partially annulled by an illegally cast vote, your vote counts less.
2020 illegal immigration hysteria reaches new heights. In the words of Ronald Reagan, "a nation that cannot
control its borders is not a nation." At one point, the Democrats correctly concurred with this aphorism. In the
current crazed race to overthrow Trump, the law is suspended, criminality is absolved, and mendacious accusations are meted
out. Far from genuinely caring about foreigners, these candidates will use them as ideological human shields to create
an apocalyptic image of Republican rule. Who needs tangible solutions when warped thinking and panic-inducing
narratives are the name of the general election game?
Border Apprehensions To Decrease By 25%, Credits Trump's Deal With Mexico. The Department of Homeland Security
(DHS) expects apprehensions of illegal aliens to decline by 25% along the U.S. southern border in June and directly credited

weeks, since the administration reached a new agreement with Mexico, that we've seen a substantial increase in the number of
interdictions on the Mexican southern border, and a sincere effort to address the transportation networks coming through
Mexico," DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan said to reporters Friday [6/28/2019].

mission doesn't include enforcement, so smugglers cross Rio Grande right in front of them. Does the United
States military exist only to defend the borders of foreign countries in the Middle East or is it allowed to defend the
borders of the U.S. against terrorist cartels, espionage, infiltrations, and smuggling? It might sound like an uncanny
question given that our military was likely created exclusively to defend our own borders, but, according to one Homeland
Security official I spoke to, the White House is still convinced that our own military cannot be used for what one would
think of as the quintessential purpose of its existence.
Joe Biden and the Obama Administration Deported More People Than Trump. It's true. In 2012, the Obama
administration kicked 419,384 people out of the United States, a single-year record that still stands, despite two years (and
counting) of Trump framing himself as America's border-guard-in-chief. Earlier this week, Trump tweeted that he would
remove "millions" of illegal immigrants if given a second term in the White House — but last year Trump managed to
deport merely 256,000 people. Those facts are problematic for the current debate over immigration policy, in which
Democrats try to frame Trump as being unreasonably cruel towards immigrants — a title that Trump (and many of his
supporters) seem pretty happy to embrace.

Send The Illegals Back!
Almost five years ago, I wrote about how then-president Barack Hussein Obama was a "deadbeat dad" to American children In his
mission to fundamentally destroy America, not only did the Fallen Messiah attack Christians, whites and police, but he
also abandoned America's black children. Along with the deceptive liberal media, he pretended to care about illegal
alien "children" by bringing them by the thousands into our country for votes. For decades, RINO Republicans and
godless Democrats have catered to illegals, exploiting them for power, politics and cheap labor — to the detriment
of American society. For over 29 years, I've spoken out against illegal immigration on behalf of blacks who bear the
brunt of the chaos brought by open borders. Illegal aliens and their children often end up in black communities, take
black jobs, crowd their hospitals and schools, and fight with black children.
Thread Reader: Illegal Immigration
Hurts Black Americans Most. Claims that immigration enforcement equals racism ignore the reality that the group
most likely to benefit from a tougher approach to immigration enforcement is young black men, who often compete with recent
immigrants for low-skilled jobs. This dynamic played out recently at a large bakery in Chicago that supplies buns to
McDonald's. Some 800 immigrant laborers, most of them from Mexico, lost their jobs last year after an audit by
[ICE]. The Cloverhill Bakery, owned by Aryzta, a big Swiss food conglomerate, had to hire new workers, 80% to 90% of
whom are African American. [...] [T]he new workers are paid $14 per hour, or $4 per hour more than the (illegal) immigrant
workers. In this case, and in many others, the beneficiaries of immigration enforcement were working-class blacks, who
are often passed over for jobs by unscrupulous employers.
On Enforcing Immigration Laws In U.S.: 'What's The Point?' Speaking at an event in Elmhurst, New York, Pelosi
attacked President Donald Trump over the raids from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers that were scheduled to
happen over the weekend but were delayed after sensitive information was leaked to the public about the locations of the
raids. "When I saw that the president was going to have these raids, I mean it was so appalling," Pelosi said.
"It's outside the circle of civilized human behavior to just be kicking down doors, splitting up families, and the rest of
that, in addition to the injustices that are happening at the border. We have legislation to go forward to address
those needs, but in terms of interior enforcement, what's the — what's the point?" [Video clip]
Acting DHS Director Leaked Information on Planned ICE Raids to Sabotage Them? To put it simply, we're going to

but they were postponed. Why? Well, from sources at DHS, acting director Kevin McAleenan leaked the plan in order to
torpedo the raid.

director tells Pirro real reason raids were halted. Confirms 'green light' to remove illegal immigrants.
Acting U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Mark Morgan confirmed Saturday that blame for the unexpected delay
in the agency's planned immigration raids partially rests with the media. "The media got a hold of some operational
specifics, and they reported it," he said to Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro. "It's egregious and it puts the lives
of the officers and agents at risk. The men and women at ICE are true American heroes. The president recognized
that. He postponed it to protect them." He issued the confirmation hours after President Donald Trump announced
an unexpected two-week postponement of immigration raids that were originally slated to occur Sunday [6/23/2019].
ICE raid deportation gambit [is] a trap that Dems have fallen into. [Scroll down] If there is no deal,
Democrats lose. There is no meaningful constituency for ignoring lawful court orders. Trump can drive home the
absurdity of demanding the abandonment of lawful court orders as the gateway to anarchy as few others could. Thus,
there is no pressure on him to cave in and offer what Pelosi and the Dems want: some form of amnesty.
illegal aliens have received DACA renewal just since January 2018. New data posted by U.S. Citizenship and
Immigration Services, posted by the California attorney general's office, confirms that 373,610 applications for Obama's
illegal amnesty were renewed between January 10, 2018, and March 31, 2019. Why January 10? January 9,
2018, was the date a single California judge, William Alsup of the Northern District of California, issued an unprecedented injunction
on Trump's order merely countermanding Obama's illegal amnesty, thereby forcing the president to violate numerous immigration
laws. Now, as a result of the notion that any judge has that kind of power, over 373,000 people who came here illegally
have access to Social Security cards, refundable tax credits, and a wealth of state benefits in certain states. Plus,
49,510 additional applications are still pending. Just 2,640 applications, or .007 percent, have been denied.

Central Africa, to continue arriving in surges.
Game over. Time to head south. Adios.
advocates prepare for ICE sweeps: 'The effect is terror. We're getting call after call after call'. Some
people had called the San Bernardino Community Service Center because of rumors, which turned out to be unfounded, that
immigration raids were underway in their neighborhoods. Others shared that they had bought food and other basics so
that they would not have to leave their homes next week.
make U-turn on calling border a 'manufactured crisis'. Democrats have done a U-turn on their claim from earlier
this year that President Trump's concern about illegal immigration at the southern border was a "manufactured crisis."
Democrats now acknowledge there is a genuine humanitarian crisis and are preparing to pass legislation that would provide as
much as $4.5 billion in federal aid to address the surge of migrants from Central America. A surging number of arrests,
media reports of smugglers renting children to desperate migrants to help them gain entry into the United States and stories
of children dying in U.S. custody have changed the narrative.
Dems' 2020 Election Strategy. [Scroll down] We see the Democrats swear for decades to guard the border,
build a wall, and protect the endangered lower economic class and African Americans from a swarm of cheap labor, until the
Democrats figure out that the lower economic class and African Americans are in their pockets anyway, while the New Illegals
actually turn Republican strongholds into Democrat states. So we turn to Republicans, who promise to fix the border.
Next thing you know, the capitalist big business "Chambers of Commerce" are in cahoots with the Left, importing the same
Illegals for cheap labor.
built the cages': Trump tells Telemundo that he inherited the migrant crisis. President Trump doubled down on
his prior assertion that the migrant crisis at the southern border of the United States was a problem he inherited from the
previous administration, in an interview that aired Thursday night [6/20/2019] on Telemundo, his first on a Spanish-language
network. "Obama built the cages. I didn't build them," Trump said. "Obama separated; I'm the one who
brought them together."
gained almost nine Hispanic residents for every additional white resident last year. The gap between Texas'
Hispanic and white populations continued to narrow last year when the state gained almost nine Hispanic residents for every
additional white resident. With Hispanics expected to become the largest population group in Texas as soon as 2022, new
population estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau showed the Hispanic population climbed to nearly
11.4 million — an annual gain of 214,736 through July 2018 and an increase of 1.9 million since 2010.
ICE Director: ICE [is] Deporting Illegals with Final Removal Orders from Judges. U.S. Immigration and
Customs Enforcement (ICE) will begin deporting illegal immigrants who have final removal orders from immigration judges,
acting ICE Director Mark Morgan said Wednesday [6/19/2019]. Speaking to "Fox & Friends," Morgan said President Donald
Trump "has been very clear" that he "wants to maintain integrity in the system, make sure that we enforce the rule of law and
address this crisis that we have on the southwest border."
pledges 6K troops to help combat illegal immigration amid heightened pressure from U.S.. Mexico is planning to
deploy thousands of troops to its southern border amid heightened pressure from the Trump administration to crack down on the
Central American migrant crisis. According to Mexican officials Monday [6/17/2019], the country has already sent over
400 military personnel to the town of Tapachula near its border with Guatemala this past week. "Since Saturday 426
soldiers from the National Guard have arrived in Tapachula," announced Maximilano Reyes, Mexican Undersecretary of State for
Latin America and the Caribbean.
York Democrats [Give] 250,000 Illegal Alien Drivers to Uber, Delivery Companies. The New York state assembly
has gifted Uber, DoorDash, Amazon, and business groups a huge new supply of 250,000 illegal immigrant drivers, so depressing
wages for the many Americans and legal immigrants who earn their wages by delivering people, cargo, and food to their
destinations. The new labor supply will partly counter President Donald Trump's "Hire American" immigration policies
that are now forcing up Americans' wages. "Wages are rising at the fastest rate in many decades ... [and] they're rising
the fastest for the lowest-income Americans," President Donald Trump said at his June 18 campaign-opener in Florida.
Paying African Migrants At Our Border? Swiss Journalist Asks The Questions Our Media Won't. How did they
get here? Who helped them get here? Hundreds of Congolese illegal aliens have come to the U.S. border seeking
asylum. You would think our media would be asking questions about how they got here and who helped them but our media
ignores the border invasion. It took a Swiss investigative journalist to look into this curious flow of Congolese.
Congolese migrants in San Antonio say journey to US took 6 months. U.S. authorities in one area of the southern
border are apprehending more asylum-seekers from Central African countries than any year on record as hundreds arrive each
week, seeking refuge in the United States from an outbreak of war in the region. Citizens of the Democratic Republic of
the Congo, the Republic of the Congo, and Angola are being released by Border Patrol in Eagle Pass, Texas, and surrounding
communities. From Eagle Pass, migrants are purchasing bus and van tickets to get to the closest large city, San
Antonio, as the Washington Examiner witnessed Monday [6/17/2019] at bus stations.
illegal immigrants who break our laws twice deserve Trump's threatened deportation. President Trump's renewed
pledge to deport huge numbers of illegal immigrants is inspiring anger, but it's hardly righteous. If, as a Homeland
Security adviser has explained, the targets of Trump's deportation plans will be those illegal immigrants who have failed to
show for their assigned court hearings, then Trump is morally, ethically, and legally justified in deporting them. The
tut-tutting chorus might as well spare us their faux moral histrionics. The immigrants Trump is targeting are people
who have broken American law not once but twice.
Dept. Suspends $200 Million Enhanced Aid for El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras Pending Illegal Migration
Enforcement. While previously pledged support for the Northern Triangle region related to Homeland Security and
combating organized crime will continue, the State Department suspends any further financial assistance ($200 million)
until the migration crisis is resolved.
One Place Where the USA Should Follow Canada's Example. In Canada, there is agreement that immigration policy
must be a primary driver of future economic growth and is considered a necessity because the country has a population of only
thirty-seven million people as of 2018. Created in 1967, Canada's well managed merit based and economic driven immigration
policy assigns points to prospective newcomers for job skills, education, a work offer, and language proficiency. There
also is an attempt to recruit foreign workers with the skills required to fill jobs that cannot be filled by current Canadian
workers. Their system is not based on country of origin, rather, it is driven primarily by the merits of the individual
candidates applying to emigrate to Canada and their potential future contribution as productive citizens and their ability to
integrate into society.
Hundreds of Millions in Aid to Central America as Immigration Crisis Rages On. President Donald Trump is
officially withholding hundreds of millions in U.S. aid to three Central American countries as punishment for being much of
the source of the current illegal immigration crisis. The White House informed Congress Monday [6/17/2019] that it will
permanently divert $370 million in aid to El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, according to Reuters. That money was
previously approved by Congress for fiscal year 2018, but had not yet been used. Trump is not stopping there. The
administration is also suspending $180 million that was approved in fiscal year 2017 that had not yet been spent.
Trump says U.S. agency will begin removing
millions of illegal immigrants. President Donald Trump said on Monday that U.S. authorities would begin next
week removing millions of immigrants who are in the United States illegally. [...] There are an estimated 12 million
immigrants who are in the United States illegally, mainly from Mexico and Central America.
ICE Will Begin Process of Removing Millions of Illegal Aliens in U.S. Next Week. President Trump made a rather
stunning announcement on Twitter Monday night [6/17/2019] regarding the fate of the millions of migrants who are currently
residing in the United States illegally. "Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal
aliens who have illicitly found their way into the United States. They will be removed as fast as they come in.
Mexico, using their strong immigration laws, is doing a very good job of stopping people..." the president tweeted.
ICE Will Remove Millions Of Illegal Immigrants From U.S.. President Donald Trump said Monday that Immigration
and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will begin mass deportations of illegal immigrants starting next week. The president
indicated that ICE intends on attempting to remove the millions of illegal immigrants currently residing in the U.S.
According to a Pew Research Center study released last week, 10.5 million "unauthorized" immigrants lived in the U.S. in
2017. "Next week ICE will begin the process of removing the millions of illegal aliens who have illicitly found their
way into the United States," Trump tweeted late Monday night. "They will be removed as fast as they come in."
Navarro: Trump's Tariffs Accomplished More in Two Days Than Congress in 20 Years. During an appearance on
"Sunday Morning Futures" on Fox News Channel, senior White House trade adviser Peter Navarro praised the tariffs used by
President Donald Trump. According to Navarro, the tariffs achieved more in two days on immigration than Congress was
able to accomplish in 20 years. [Video clip]
Circuit attempts to reverse deportation order for illegal alien. More than ten years ago, ICE raided a
manufacturing plant in Los Angeles where it was suspected that the employer was hiring illegal aliens. They had a
warrant and discovered well over 100 illegals working at the facility. They were all taken into custody and the process
of deporting them began. But now, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that one of the men (who admitted to being
in the country illegally at the time of the raid) should not be deported. This is being hailed by the ACLU as a victory
for "immigrants" over the forces of ICE.
shirks its duty at the southern border. The Trump administration is doing just about everything it can to slow
the flood of undocumented Mexicans and Central Americans coming to the U.S. and claiming asylum. But alleviating our
growing border crisis is impossible unless Congress changes our immigration laws. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, was
right when he said Tuesday [6/11/2019] during a congressional hearing on border security that there is "absolutely no justification
whatsoever for Congress to sit on the sidelines and watch as this crisis continues to unfold." The emergency on the border
is "getting worse and worse as Congress sits on its hands and does absolutely nothing" to help.
Strategy. The Cloward-Piven Strategy was an example of what are commonly called Trojan Horse
initiatives — mass movements whose outward purpose seems to be providing material help to the downtrodden, but
whose real objective is to draft poor people into service as revolutionary foot soldiers; to mobilize poor people
en masse in an effort to overwhelm government agencies with a flood of demands beyond the capacity of those
agencies to meet. Cloward and Piven calculated that the flood of demands which they were recommending would break the
budget, jam the bureaucratic gears into gridlock, and bring the system crashing down. Fear, turmoil, violence and
economic collapse would accompany such a breakdown — providing perfect conditions for fostering radical
change. That was the theory.
migrants pass through San Antonio and swiftly fan out across the country. Roughly 300 Congolese and Angolan
citizens who arrived in San Antonio the first week of June after crossing the U.S.-Mexico border days earlier have all
briskly departed the city for destinations across the country, some with fuzzy plans based partly on hope. The hundreds
of family members and single adults from Central Africa first showed up June 4 at the southern border's Eagle Pass and Del
Rio towns in south-central Texas. The migrants surrendered to Border Patrol agents and claimed asylum after crossing
the Rio Grande.

Illegal Alien Population Booms in Red States Ahead of 2020 Election. The illegal alien population has boomed in
at least three red states won by President Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, new analysis reveals. Pew
Research Center analysis finds that in Louisiana, North Dakota, and South Dakota — three states that went
overwhelmingly for Trump over failed Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election — the illegal alien
population has increased over the last ten years.
Arrests 140 Illegal Aliens, 42 with Criminal Records, in Midwest Raid. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) agency has arrested 140 illegal aliens, nearly a third of which have criminal records, in a five-day raid across
multiple Midwest states. ICE agents last conducted a raid across Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, and
Wisconsin that resulted in the arrest of 140 illegal aliens, five of whom were women and the other 135 of whom were men.

chief reveals startling stat on asylum seekers who skip hearings, disappear. The acting Homeland Security
secretary gave lawmakers a glimpse Tuesday into just how many asylum seekers skip their hearings after being released into
the United States — telling a Senate panel that a recent program found 90 percent miss their court dates.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked Acting Secretary Kevin McAleenan how many asylum seekers
coming across the southern border show up for their hearings.
lost track of criminal alien informants: inspector general. Federal law enforcement agencies knowingly invite
foreigners, often with lengthy criminal records, into the U.S., sponsoring them for visas on the hope they'll help out with
an investigation. But in dozens of those cases the government has lost track of the people and agents were slow in
reporting them to Homeland Security, allowing the trail to go cold in efforts to track down, according to a Justice
Department inspector general's report released Wednesday [6/12/2019]. From 2015 to 2017 the Justice Department sponsored
roughly 5,500 immigrants for deferred deportation, an S visa or parole into the U.S.
town overrun with crime and disease. The mayor has had enough. Uvalde is a small town of 17,000 inhabitants,
and they are now overrun by illegal immigrants and an international cartel smuggling operation. Uvalde is 40-60 miles
from the border, but it might as well be right at the border. "We are in no man's land. The state is not doing anything;
the federal government is not doing anything," the mayor, who is begging the politicians to get involved, said. "We are getting
nothing. I've lived here all my life and have never seen anything like this. The people in the communities are getting
scared. What is coming that we don't see? Who knows? People up north and in D.C. have no clue what is
going on here. They don't realize that these people are not being screened for diseases. We're fed up."
Situated at the crossroads of major highways coming up from border towns in the Laredo and Del Rio border sectors, Uvalde has
now become a dumping ground for migrants coming north. And they are not just coming from Central America.
Homeless, Illegals, and the Politics of Virtue Signaling. We have no idea how many of the homeless are illegal
immigrants, but we do know that homeless shelters in big cities will not cooperate with blanket ICE searches for
illegals. Shelter workers are trained to request a warrant for a specific individual, and without that, they are told
to keep ICE at bay. The extent to which the ACLU and pro-illegal immigration organizations have gone to educate
homeless shelters about how to deal with ICE indicates that the presence of illegals in these shelters is not insignificant.
Shelters are all-too-often in lesser supply than the demand for accommodations, especially during winter in brutal climes in
places like Chicago.
ICE [has been] forced to release more than 200,000 migrants into U.S. since December. In every sense, Democrats
and the courts — not the Trump administration — are in charge of immigration and border policy, as
evidenced by the massive invasion of migrants that have been released into the interior of the country since the beginning of
the year. On Sunday [6/9/2019], Brandon Judd, president of the National Border Patrol Council, told Fox News' "Fox &
Friends" morning program that some 200,000 migrants have been released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) since
December because the agency simply has no choice.
Authorities Begin Arresting Illegals Riding "The Beast" Train to US. Mexican military officials reportedly have
started targeting foreigners riding "The Beast" train on their way to the US southern border. This was the first
operation of its kind since Mexico and the US signed an agreement on Friday to stop the invasion at the US southern border.
Deal with Mexico Likely Ends Catch-and-Release, Defunds Cartels. President Donald Trump has announced an
immigration reform deal with the Mexican government which likely will allow border officials to end the catch-and-release of
Central American migrants. Ending catch-and-release is a huge win for Americans and Trump because it means border
officials now have a legal alternative to the catch-and-release rules which allow migrants to legally enter the United States
if they bring children and claim asylum.
Breaks Mexico: New Deal Reached, Mexico To Take Action Against Illegal Immigration Into U.S.. President
Donald Trump announced late on Friday [6/7/2019] that the United States has reached a new agreement with Mexico in which
Mexico is going to take "strong measures" to end the flow of illegal immigration into the United States and will thus avoid
being hit with massive tariffs by the Trump administration.
hardball on Mexico is working. Risky as President Trump's tariff threat tactic on Mexico is, it appears to
be... working. Trump's hardball has gotten Mexico to deploy some serious measures to keep the migrant surge into the
U.S. from becoming a flood. Somehow, a trade treaty works best when there's a security treaty underlying it, and Mexico
thus far seems to recognize this. The markets, by the way, are noticing.
Withholds Identities of Migrant Caravan Funders in U.S., Britain. Mexican authorities are not releasing the
names of the 26 individuals and entities whose assets were frozen as part of a new probe into migrant caravans and
cartel-linked human smuggling organizations. The investigation was moved into high gear this week as tensions between
the U.S. and Mexico escalated over tariff threats as a punitive measure for lax immigration enforcement. On Thursday
[6/6/2019], Mexico's Finance and Tax Secretariat (SHCP) announced the seizure of 26 accounts, including some from the United
Kingdom and the U.S., which allegedly helped fund the northbound migrant caravans largely from Central America.

privileges for illegal aliens. Fun time is over for illegal aliens in custody. The Washington Post
reported, "The Trump administration is canceling English classes, recreational programs, and legal aid for unaccompanied
minors staying in federal migrant shelters nationwide." This nonsense began when Carlos Holguín, a lawyer who
represents illegal aliens (more on that later), sued the Clinton administration. It was a sue-and-settle suit in which
Democrats gave liberals what they wanted, which a judge approved. Holguín is upset. [...] I expect an Obama judge
will enjoin the government, and an appellate court will overrule. That has been the pattern so far.

Illegal Immigration Skyrockets, The Border Crisis Spins Out Of Control. The big border headline this week was
that U.S. authorities arrested or turned away more than 144,000 people at the southwest border in May, including more than
100,000 family units and children, far exceeding previous monthly totals this year and putting us on pace for illegal
immigration levels not seen in 13 years. The U.S. Border Patrol apprehended on average 4,200 people a day last month
and now has more than 19,000 people in custody. These numbers tell us the migrant crisis is deepening, despite efforts
by the Trump administration and the Mexican government to contain it. But beyond the numbers is something yet more
disturbing, a reality not often reflected in media coverage of the crisis: the border itself is spinning out of control.
rights' activists arrested for human trafficking. Two advocates for migrants' rights were arrested for human
trafficking Wednesday [6/5/2019], while federal finance officials yesterday blocked the bank accounts of 26 people allegedly
involved in the same crime. Irineo Mujica, director of a migrant advocacy organization that has helped several large
migrant caravans cross Mexico, was arrested in Sonoyta, Sonora, at about the same time activist Cristóbal Sánchez
was detained outside his home in the Mexico City borough of Xochimilco.
deploys military to curb migration, reportedly offers major concessions as Trump tariffs loom. With just days
to go until the Trump administration is set to impose punishing tariffs on Mexico unless the country halts the unprecedented
flow of illegal immigrants across the southern border, numerous signs that Mexico would capitulate emerged Thursday [6/6/2019] —
but it remained unclear Friday morning [6/7/2019] whether their efforts would satisfy the White House. Reports in the evening
indicated that Mexico's negotiators with Washington have offered to immediately deploy 6,000 National Guard troops to the border with
Guatemala. Additionally, Mexico has reportedly agreed to a major overhaul of reasonable asylum protocols, which would require
asylum applicants to seek permanent refuge in the first country they arrive in after fleeing their home countries.
border surge prompts 10% jump in 2019 prediction to 1,072,000 illegal immigrants. Calling the surprising May
surge in illegal immigrant arrests on the border the "worst case scenario," a top immigration analyst has boosted the expected
level of crossings 10%, to over 1 million. U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Wednesday [6/5/2019] revealed that May
apprehensions topped 144,000. This year has seen 676,315 apprehensions so far, up 99% over this time last year. That
shocked immigration officials who had hoped it would drop in part due to the Trump administration's get tough efforts on the border
and the potentially deadly heat migrants encounter traveling through northern Mexico.
Frees 5.5K Illegal Aliens into U.S. in a Week; 196K Released in 5 Months. President Trump's Department of
Homeland Security (DHS) released about 5,500 border crossers and illegal aliens into the interior of the United States over
the past seven days, federal data confirms. From May 28 to June 3, DHS released 5,500 border crossers and illegal
aliens into American communities in various states across the country. The latest federal data, obtained by Breitbart
News, finds that DHS, in the last week, released nearly 800 border crossers and illegal aliens into the U.S. every single day.
Teacher Fired for Asking Trump on Twitter to Remove Illegal-Immigrant Students. A high-school teacher in Texas
was fired this week after asking President Trump for his assistance in removing illegal-immigrant students from her school,
in what she thought were private tweets. Georgia Clark, who taught English at the Carter-Riverside High School for
20 years, was fired on Tuesday [6/4/2019] after eight members of the school board voted unanimously in favor of her
termination. The vote came three weeks after Clark asked the president to deport students she believed to be in the
No more education, legal services for immigrant kids. The federal government has stopped paying for
English-language courses and legal services at facilities that hold immigrant children around the country, imposing budget
cuts it says are necessary at a time when record numbers of unaccompanied children are arriving at the border.
Agency Buying 2.2 Million Diapers to Help Migrants. The U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency is buying 2.2 million
diapers to help deliver economic migrants and their young children into Americans' worksites, schools, and neighborhoods, according to an
online contract request. The purchase implements the welcome policy set by a bipartisan panel in Congress, which in February directed
the Department of Homeland Security to help the migrants — despite the impact on Americans' wages, schools, and
neighborhoods — instead of helping Americans by giving the agency the legal authority needed to block the migration.
armed forces meets migrants at [Mexico's] southern border. Mexican soldiers, armed police and migration officials blocked
hundreds of migrants after they crossed the border from Guatemala in a caravan into southern Mexico on Wednesday [6/5/2019], and detained
dozens of them, a witness from a migrant aid group and an official said. The Mexican response in the border town of Metapa, which
included dozens of soldiers, marked a toughening of the government's efforts to curb the flow of mainly Central American migrants, said
Salva Cruz, a coordinator with Fray Matias de Cordova.
Claims Some Migrant Caravan Funding Came from U.S., England. Mexican tax officials froze the assets of 26
individuals and entities they allege are tied to human smuggling organizations or to promoting Central American migrant
caravans. The caravans moved thousands of individuals from the "northern triangle" through Mexico to the U.S.
border. The funding for the migrant caravans allegedly came from the U.S., England, Africa, and Central America.
Through a prepared statement, Mexico's Finance and Tax Secretariat (SHCP) announced the freezing of the accounts claiming the
move resulted from an investigation by their Financial Intelligence Unit (UIF).
Officials Reject any Proposal Requiring Them to Keep Migrants in Mexico. The hypocrisy and ideology of the
Mexican position would indicate the tariffs are certain to take place. Factually, after Mexico has made their "red
line" position clear, one could argue there's no reason to go through the graduated timeline; the U.S. might as well just
start applying the full 25% tariff amount on June 10th.
Democrats are preventing Trump from securing the border. President Donald Trump has announced that he will impose a
5 percent tariff on goods imported from Mexico on June 10, 2019, unless Mexico takes effective action before then to
dramatically reduce the number of Central American migrants crossing its territory to reach the United States. If the
crisis continues, Trump said he will raise the tariff every month until it reaches 25 percent in October. This is a
dramatic shift from his previous border security measures, such as a border wall. The money for those projects would
have come from federal taxes. Voters wouldn't have been impacted directly. The tariff, however, will raise the
cost of groceries, cars, and many other consumer goods. Voters will notice, and they won't be happy about it.
Mexico Is an
Asylum Free-Rider. President Trump's threat to impose tariffs on Mexican goods starting next week may or may
not get Mexico to be more cooperative in preventing third-country "asylum-seekers" from passing through on the way to our
border. I'm not too concerned about the costs that such a tariff would impose on U.S. businesses and consumers (which
would be real), because the costs would be worth it if the tactic were actually to work. I'm skeptical it will, since
Mexico always has a chip on its shoulder with regard to us. But recent signs suggest I might be pleasantly
surprised. Here's hoping. Perhaps more important than the means, however, are the desired ends.
House Dems Pass Mass
Amnesty Bill. House Democrats voted 237-187 Tuesday [6/4/2019] to pass a bill that, if entered into law, would
grant amnesty to an estimated 2.5 million illegally resident people. They also blocked a proposed change to the bill
from Republicans, which could have helped reduce illegal immigration by funding border crisis relief to the tune of
$4.5 billion. H.R. 6, the American Dream and Promise Act, made it to the floor following a contentious intraparty
debate over its contours in the House Judiciary Committee. If passed into law, the bill would create a path to citizenship for
three distinct groups of illegally resident individuals who have been heretofore protected from deportation by separate

By passing the American Dream and Promise Act, Democrats demonstrate their ignorance. America does not owe illegal aliens

Funding for "border crisis relief" means they intend to make life more comfortable for those who have not yet sneaked in.
Gambit. President Trump's threat to impose tariffs on all Mexican imports until Mexico takes serious action to
control its border with the U.S. shocked the Washington Beltway, Wall Street, and the Palacio Nacional in Mexico City.
These centers of financial and political power, lulled by a U.S. Congress that has refused to act and activist federal judges
who have stymied Trump's border control efforts at every step, were jolted awake by Trump's ultimatum. But they should
not have been surprised. The president issued a similar threat back in April. And, Trump promised from day one of
his presidential campaign that he would make stanching the flow of illegal immigration, crime, and drugs northward and of
U.S. factories and jobs southward a focal point of his presidency[.]
Immigration and the Subversive Libertarian-Right. President Trump last week announced his intention to impose a
5 percent tariff, effective June 10, on all Mexican imports. The president's move is a response to Mexico's apparent
unwillingness or inability to stop the flow of illegal immigration from its side of the border into ours. [...] Trump has
characterized the state of mass immigration as an "invasion" that has brought our system to a "breaking point." Plenty
of analysts, Left and Right, agree. [...] Not only do we have troops at the border now, but on the same day Bier called on
Mexico to open the floodgates from Central America, a U.S. Marine fired his weapon while on duty along the southern border.
The Marine reported he had been attacked inside his vehicle by three people. Around the same time, a mob of angry Hondurans
attacked the U.S. embassy in Tegucigalpa. Technically, this was an act of war. [David J.] Bier doesn't seem to mind.
in time for the border surge: Democrats hand out amnesty to 2 million DREAMers. To the shouts of "Si, se
puede!" House Democrats voted Tuesday [6/4/2019] to hand out an unconditional amnesty to more than 2 million illegal
immigrants known as DREAMers, along with two other categories of illegal migrants, sending a message abroad that the border's
open and path to the citizenship comes free. That's some message to send during an ongoing border surge.

Border Official: 'These Numbers Are a Crisis'. Former commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Gil
Kerlikowske told CNN anchor Poppy Harlow on Monday [6/3/2019] that the number of migrants crossing the border constitutes a
crisis. "So this is a crisis, and for anyone on either side of the policy aisle that said it's not a crisis, these
numbers are a crisis and the workload is tremendous," said Kerlikowske, who served in the Obama administration. U.S.
officials have said that border agents are overwhelmed by the number of migrants crossing the border. Border
apprehensions hit a record high last month with 98,977 arrests. On Wednesday, border agents apprehended a group of
1,036 migrants illegally crossing from Mexico, the largest group arrested this fiscal year.

minors in the custody of Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) climbed 221%.
Says It Is Holding Back 250K Migrants amid Tariff Threat. Mexico's top diplomats issued a veiled threat to the
U.S. government suggesting that without their efforts, 250,000 more Central American migrants could proceed north. The
statement follows President Donald Trump's threat of raising a 5 percent tariff if Mexico does not strengthen its
borders. On Monday evening [6/3/2019], Mexico's Foreign Relations Secretariat posted a statement claiming the country
was effectively providing humanitarian visas to Central American migrants and strengthening immigration enforcement
operations in southern Mexico.
large group' from Africa wades across Rio Grande into US. A group of illegals from Angola, Cameroon and Congo
waded across the Rio Grande River and into the United States, video from Customs and Border Protection shows. The video
shows male and female adults walking through the water and into Texas, several with children on their shoulders.
Large Group of African Migrants Wade Across the Rio Grande Into US. US Customs and Border Protection posted a
video of a group of illegal aliens from Angola, Cameroon and Ebola-stricken Congo wading across the Rio Grande into the
United States. The video shows men, women and children crossing the river in the dead of the night. Border Patrol
announced they apprehended 116 invaders from Africa on Thursday [5/30/2019].
Trump Question: "Are the Drug Lords, Cartels & Coyotes really running Mexico?". Everyone knows the
truthful answer to that question is a resounding YES, Mexico is a narco-state controlled by drug cartels and political system
of bribes and payoffs therein. The most recent evidence was in testimony within the El Chapo Guzman trial, where
witnesses testified to paying-off government officials, including the former President of Mexico. [...] What makes Trump's
direct-speak so powerful is the brutal honesty of it. Never in our lives have we witnessed a President so forcefully
broadcasting the truth without regard for recipient discomfort.
Not Many Companies
Actually Get Busted for Hiring Illegal Immigrants, Study Finds. A new study finds that, despite a
record-setting number of immigrants illegally entering the country, relatively few employers are prosecuted for hiring
undocumented aliens. From April 2018 to March 2019, only 11 individuals were prosecuted for knowingly employing
migrants without proper documentation, according to information compiled by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at
Syracuse University. No individuals have been prosecuted in the past two months, and no companies were prosecuted in
the last year.
Patrol Agents Apprehend Large Group in Del Rio. U.S. Border Patrol agents assigned to the Del Rio Station
apprehended a large group of 116 individuals Thursday [5/30/2019]. "Large groups present a unique challenge for the men
and women of the Del Rio Sector," said Chief Raul Ortiz. "This large group from Africa further demonstrates the
complexity and severity of the border security and humanitarian crisis at our Southwest border." Agents performing line
watch operations apprehended the group after they illegally crossed the Rio Grande into the U.S. around 10:30 p.m.
Chief: 80,000 Migrants in Custody, 100,000 More Approaching. The U.S. government is holding 80,000 migrants in
custody, says Kevin McAleenan, the acting secretary for the Department of Homeland Security. "The situation is both a
humanitarian and border security crisis that has become a national emergency," McAleenan said in a telephone press conference
on Thursday night [5/30/2019].
cracks down on exploiting illegal aliens. In his appearance before the American Federation of Teachers, in
which he fondled a 10-year-old girl, Joe Biden waxed poetically about how coyotes help immigrants make it to the United
States like his great-great-great-grandfather did. The reality is coyotes rape women and children. Amnesty
International said two-thirds of the women are raped along the way. Sasha G. Lewis wrote, "Slave Trade
Today: American Exploitation of Illegal Aliens." In 1979. Let us not pretend that the exploitation of
illegal aliens is anything less than a multi-billion-dollar industry that pays off rent-to-own politicians like Biden.
struggles to keep pace as thirst for water intensifies. As the planet warms and weather patterns turn more
extreme, droughts — as well as floods — in the state generally have worsened. Meanwhile, the
state population is expected to double by 2050 to more than 50 million people.
The Editor says...
On the whole, Texas doesn't have a problem with water. As of this
writing, all the lakes in the eastern
two-thirds of Texas are full. El Paso has an overpopulation problem, caused by the Democratic Party; that is,
the wide-open international border. The planet is not warming and the weather patterns are not more extreme than in
decades past. When people complain about fake news, this is what they mean.
9-in-10 Illegal Aliens Recently Released into U.S. [are] Not Showing Up to Court Hearings. Nearly 9-in-10
illegal aliens who have been recently released into the interior of the United States while they await their asylum hearings
are not showing up to their court dates, according to a federal pilot program. For almost half a year, the Department
of Homeland Security (DHS) has ramped up its catch and release of border crossers and illegal aliens, specifically those
arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border with children.
Calming Feeling as Jew-Hate Now Takes Deeper Root in the Democrat Party. It now is commonplace to recognize
that Democrats — including Obama, Biden, Schumer, Clinton, and all the rest of them — all strongly
supported building a border wall and keeping out Illegals. Biden even complained openly about "corrupt Mexico." It
was a key part of the Democrat program, dating back to the days of California's Hispanic union leader Cesar Chavez, that the
Illegals must be kept out because they take jobs from the economic underclass and bring down their wages by eagerly working
for crumbs. Democrat Orthodoxy taught that the party had to protect African Americans and union workers from the influx
of uncontrolled cheap labor. And then the Democrats did some vote counting. They realized that they have the
African-American voting population in their pockets anyway. They assumed that the White union workers never
would leave either, since union bosses are well provided for by the Democrats. At the same time, the Democrats came to
realize that an influx of Illegals rapidly would change the American electorate. They were right. They have
changed the electorate in the California that once elected Nixon and Reagan. They have changed Colorado and New
Mexico. They are changing Nevada and Arizona. They even are aiming at Texas. So they sold out African
Americans — as they always do — and White union workers for a greater payoff at the voting booths.
flowing from Tijuana completely closes Imperial Beach shoreline. A beach closure that has been in place for
months for the southern part of the Imperial Beach was extended Sunday to include the city's entire shoreline. The San
Diego County Department of Environment Health issued the order to close the coastline to swimmers as a result of
sewage-contaminated runoff in the Tijuana River. Signs warning residents of the contamination will be in place until
testing indicates the water is safe for recreational use.
'100%' of illegal immigrant families [are being] released
into U.S.: DHS. Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said Thursday [5/23/2019] that "100%" of
illegal immigrant families in the new border surge are being released into communities, rather than being held and
deported. He said within a month or two, they are also granted work permits, giving them a foothold to live and remain
in the U.S. while their cases proceed through the immigration courts — a process that averages two years, and
stretches even longer in some overwhelmed regions. Mr. McAleenan said that system rewarding unauthorized migrants
who jump the border with exactly the thing they seek is responsible for the record-breaking numbers.
Liberals Can Beat Climate Change by Stopping Illegal Immigration. Climate change and illegal immigration are
the two biggest crises that we hear about on the news today. What may come as a surprise is that there is a significant
link between these two. [...] If there are 350,000 people illegally immigrating to the United States each year, each of whom
results in 10 metric tons more of CO2 emissions per year, this results in an additional 3.5 million metric tons produced
in the first year. As 350,000 more people illegally immigrate to the United States each year, the problem grows
geometrically. In ten years, the additional 3,500,000 people in the United States result in an additional 35 million
metric tons of CO2 per year. In 30 years, the additional 10,500,000 people in the United States result in an additional
105 million metric tons of CO2 per year.
Roy, Jordan, Biggs: Pelosi, Dems just don't care about our national emergency. House Democrats spent two
years in the minority last Congress admonishing Republicans for not doing enough to protect and care for migrant children
crossing the nation's southern border. Now in the majority with control over the House floor, Speaker Nancy Pelosi and
her conference are poised to let funding for the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) program run out. Why? They
never cared in the first place. White House OMB Director Russ Vought sent congressional leadership a letter May 1
requesting $4.5 billion in emergency funding, citing an unfolding "humanitarian and security crisis" that is becoming
"more dire each day." While Vought's request included funding for additional ICE beds, resources to care for migrants,
including mothers and children, who are apprehended by law enforcement, the majority was for humanitarian aid, which includes
the care and placement of unaccompanied alien children, otherwise known as the UAC program.
seen before! "We've Lost Control of the Border, as we are right now". During an interview with Fox News
Channel's 'Outnumbered', U.S. Border Patrol Agent Hector Garza, in his role as vice-president of the National Border Patrol
Council (NBPC), told Harris Faulkner, "We've lost control of the border, as we are right now." Cartels are in complete
control of our borders and the massive illegal immigration. The border patrol has caught over 500,000 illegal entrants
since January. At least as many crossed and were not caught.
Land of the Free' can still be a nation of stronger borders and immigration laws. Our broken immigration system
is what got Donald Trump elected president. [...] Trump's proposal is moderate in that it aims to shift the composition of
immigration without reducing the flow. Trump would scrap the diversity lottery and curtail chain migration. This
is sensible. Chain migration is the undesired outcome of "family reunification" visas. If you think of family
reunification, you may picture an immigrant who comes here, gains citizenship, and is then able to bring his wife and young
children behind with him. Under Trump's proposal, that would remain unchanged. What would go would be the
categories of "family reunification" visas that lead to the massive chain: parents of noncitizens, those parents' other adult
children, those other adult children's spouses, and thus their parents, and so on. (Trump's proposal goes too far by
ending reunification visas for the spouses and minor children of legal immigrants who are not yet citizens.) Trump would
also scrap the diversity lottery and shift hundreds of thousands of visas over to a skill-based visa program.
It Gonna Be, A Welfare State or Open Borders? After the Civil War, several states passed their own immigration
laws. In 1875 the Supreme Court stepped in declaring immigration to be a federal responsibility. As a result, as
immigration rose in the 1880s, with economic conditions worsening in some areas, Congress began passing immigration
legislation. In this period, certain aliens were prohibited from entering the United States by the Chinese Exclusion
Act of 1882 and by the Alien Contract Labor Laws of 1885 and 1887. The latter prohibited the importation and migration of
foreigners and aliens under contract or agreement to perform labor in the United States. The Immigration Act of 1882
levied a head tax of fifty cents on each immigrant and excluded (worded from the .gov website) idiots, lunatics, convicts,
and persons likely to become a government charge (people that cannot take care of themselves).
finds most Americans don't realize how bad the border crisis is. Here's the rundown for all Americans to equip
themselves with the information needed to grasp the state America finds itself in now:
• 109,144 individuals were apprehended at the border in April alone.
• 103,492 illegal and inadmissible aliens were apprehended by during the month of March alone.
• 76,325 apprehensions occurred in February.
• Border arrests have reached their highest point in 12 years.
• February numbers showed a 1,744% increase in asylum claims.
• Family unit apprehensions by Border Patrol jumped 311% during the first five months of this fiscal year over the first five months of last fiscal year.
• 4,117 migrants were apprehended on a single day in March.
• Just 6% of the people crossing the border are expressing a credible fear and requesting asylum in one sector, according to an immigration official.
• A recent survey found that one-third of Guatemala's population wants to come to the U.S.
• Over 1% of the entire populations of Guatemala and Honduras have entered the United States this fiscal year, according to DHS.
• There are at least 1.9 million known criminal aliens sitting in U.S. jails.
• Human smugglers are running radio ads in Central America, according to a Border Patrol official.
• ICE is having to reallocate resources to deal with "fake families" trying to manipulate border policies.
• Now Border Patrol reports that children are also being rented and "recycled" to defraud immigration officials.
• Catch-and-release policies also sent an estimated 7,000 illegal immigrants into Tuscon, Ariz., over an eight-month period alone.
• Border Patrol agents in Texas over just the last week apprehended 5,500 migrants per day.
If you weren't aware of the severity of the immigration crisis, that ought to give you a pretty good snapshot. And
that's just a sampling of stories from the last few weeks.
Are Getting So Desperate At The Border, They're Deploying The TSA. The Department of Homeland Security is
"retasking" hundreds of Transportation Security Administration employees to the United States-Mexico border to assist with
the frontline immigration process in an effort to relieve some of the pressure on United States Customs and Border Patrol,
and Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
agents spend less than 50 percent of time patrolling the border. Border Patrol agents now spend less than 50 percent
of their time patrolling the border, a top official said Wednesday, putting a stark face on the border crisis. Customs and
Border Protection acting Commissioner John Sanders made the revelation at a press conference where he stood next to Sen. Lindsey
Graham, who proposed new legislation to try to combat the surge of illegal immigrants. Mr. Sanders said his agents are now
spending more time changing diapers, driving migrants and providing medical care for families and children than they are spending
out in the field on patrol.
Nearly 100 Indicted,
50 In Custody After ICE Uncovers Large-Scale Marriage Fraud Scheme. Authorities indicted 96 people and arrested
50 for a marriage fraud operation allegedly taking place in Vietnam and Houston. A months-long Homeland Security
Investigations (HSI) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) probe uncovered a criminal operation that enabled
numerous foreign nationals to fraudulently obtain legal immigration status in the U.S., according to an Immigration and
Customs Enforcement press release Monday [5/13/2019].
DHS officials ousted over push back on Trump administration's plan to arrest thousands of migrants. Former
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and a top immigration official challenged a previously secret White House plan
to arrest thousands of migrant parents and children in nearly a dozen U.S. cities, Fox News confirmed Monday [5/13/2019].
The Trump administration wanted to target migrant families that had crossed into the U.S. from Mexico in attempt to show
that the U.S. wasn't going to back down on its border stance by detaining and deporting illegal immigrant families, The
Washington Post first reported, citing several current and former Homeland Security officials.
Patrol Flies Migrants from South Texas to Reduce Overcrowding. U.S. Border Patrol officials are now using air
transportation to move migrants from overcrowded processing centers to lesser-impacted facilities, particularly from the Rio
Grande Valley Sector. On Friday [5/10/2019], officials in the Rio Grande Valley Border Patrol Sector began flying
migrants from McAllen, Texas, to Del Rio, Texas, the Washington Post reported. The flights are operated by U.S.
Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) but the migrants remain in the custody of Border Patrol.
for Illegal Aliens and Persecution for Male Students in Our Universities. People who enter the United States
without legal permission, often crossing borders clandestinely, are officially designated "illegal aliens" or "inadmissible
aliens," although the Internal Revenue Service prefers "undocumented aliens." People who have entered the country
illegally are subject to deportation. A large majority of American citizens, 76 percent, do not favor legal
rights or government benefits for illegal undocumented immigrants. Only 15 percent believe that illegal aliens
should be granted rights and benefits. In fact, 67 percent of all likely U.S. voters think illegal
immigration is a serious problem in America today, with 47 percent saying it is a very serious problem; only
32 percent think it is not a serious problem and 8 percent say it is not at all serious. A majority of
likely voters, 62 percent, think that people who overstay their visas should be apprehended by the government and
deported, while only 21 percent disagree.
Pareto, and the Fall of the Elites. Encouraging mass immigration of illegals who compete for lower-level jobs
does not help the underprivileged, rather it creates a new group of voters that will support the Democrats. It also
helps privileged groups by supplying cheap labor. Take, for example, wealthy Marin County, California. Marin is
largely populated by well-to-do and highly educated professional people. An underclass of often illegal immigrants
provides affordable services such as yard work and babysitting. In the 2012 presidential election, Marin voted 74% for
Obama. In the 2016 election, Marin voted 77% for Hillary and only 16% for Trump. Another wealthy California
county, Santa Clara County, is the heart of Silicon Valley. In the 2016 election, Santa Clara County voted only 21% for
Trump. Fresno County, California, a county that is majority Hispanic with a very high poverty rate, voted 43% for
Trump. California as a whole voted 32% for Trump. The nation as a whole voted 46% for Trump. In the borough
of Manhattan, in New York City, one of the wealthiest places in the country, only 10% of the votes went for Trump. Clearly
the privileged class votes Democratic and strongly opposes Trump. In places inhabited by elites, the Democrats dominate.
immigrants [are] now working as lawyers in California, Connecticut, Florida, New York, New Jersey, Penn, Oklahoma,
Illinois. Illegal immigrants who have two-year work permits under DACA have now been admitted to the bar to
practice law in several states. The latest state to admit an illegal immigrant is Oklahoma, whose bar association
recently admitted Javier Hernandez, who came to the United States illegally from Mexico with his family when he was a child.
[...] The Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) called it "utterly mind-boggling" that bar associations in some
states are now willing to admit illegal aliens "who have begun their relationship with the United States via a blatant
violation of U.S. law."
America is Collapsing and Taking America With It. Venezuela's spectacular collapse may be dominating the news
cycle now, but a Latin American country usually implodes in a spectacular fashion every few years. Even now, there is
political chaos in Nicaragua, with major protests demanding the ouster of Sandinista leader Daniel Ortega, and brewing
scandals in Argentina, Brazil and Peru that could expand and tear any or all of the three countries apart.
court allows Trump administration to send back asylum seekers to Mexico to wait out court process. The Ninth
Circuit Court of Appeals late Tuesday granted the Trump administration's request to send asylum seekers back to Mexico to
wait out court proceedings temporarily. The court order reversed a decision by a San Francisco judge that would have
blocked the policy — giving President Trump a temporary victory on immigration.
Circuit Appellate Court Allows 'Return to Mexico' Policy to Remain In Force. A win for the Trump administration
in the ongoing effort to stem the influx of migrants crossing the U.S-Mexico border seeking asylum. The ninth circuit
federal appeals court ruled (full pdf below) that the Trump administration can continue returning Central American migrants
to Mexico while their requests for asylum in the U.S. are adjudicated.
Cartels Booming in New Mexico After Feds Shut Down Border Check Points. After two check points were shut down
in New Mexico, the presence of Mexican drug cartels is surging in the state. The check points were shut down in order to
deploy New Mexico's resources to El Paso, Texas to help with the influx of migrants trying to enter the U.S. from that location.
Deportee Sentenced; CBP Uncovers Illegals and Drugs Packed Into Vehicles. It appears that nothing will deter an
illegal alien who wants to get into the United States, whether to work illegally and sign up for welfare, or improve the
prospects of success in a criminal career. Nor does it appear that the illegal-alien invasion, now occurring with buses
and tractor trailers shipping illegals en masse to southwest border, will end anytime soon. Thus, it does appear that
nothing short of a wall can protect the United States from colonization by penniless Central Americans. Nor will anything
short of searching every vehicle arriving at ports of entry inhibit the drug trade. The border is open, and the illegals
and drug runners know it.
Democrats Are Humanitarian Frauds on the Border. The evidence that Democrats are now an unapologetically open
borders party is piling up, and Republicans need to start calling them on it. From opposing expanded detention
facilities, actively blocking legislation to fix family separation policies, and even voting against legislation that would
prohibit illegal immigrants from voting, it's becoming abundantly clear what Democrats want out of U.S. immigration policy:
open borders, new voters, and a system that never actually gets fixed, so they can use it as a cudgel against Republicans.
is becoming the world's backdoor into America (and Congress is AWOL). A 2018 Gallup poll revealed that more than
750 million adults would like to migrate to the United States. If even some of them brought children, that number
could easily top 1 billion. That's more than three times the population of the United States: the equivalent of
most of China moving here. It wasn't always like that. In 2012, the number was only 150 million. Has the
rest of the world gotten so much worse in the last six years? Is America looking that much better? One thing is
certain: getting into the U.S. is looking a whole lot easier. The entire world knows about the "asylum" loophole in
our immigration system. It encourages people to: sneak across the border as a "family" (real or manufactured); find a
border patrol agent to surrender to; claim to be refugees with a "credible fear" of persecution, and demand asylum.
clear out after Mexican police raid. Who says human beings, Central American, Mexican, or North American, don't
respond to incentives? [...] So apparently all it took was word of a police raid along swift and certain deportation and the
migrants decided to stay away. Among illegal migrants, word gets around fast. They know the migrant journey is
arduous. They know the Mexican public has gotten sick of the side effects of their arrivals — littering, crime, costs
of food and board, and disruption. The tipping point seems to have been the raids, from the officials who will no
longer stand by idly and let them do it.
United States Is Giving the Caravans a Huge Incentive to Keep Coming. We are witnessing an extraordinary
collapse of the rule of law in our immigration system as hundreds of thousands of migrants exploit our generous asylum system
by making bogus claims of asylum after entering the United States illegally. As I wrote recently, caravan after caravan
of illegal aliens from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador has been pushing toward our border. Mexico is warning that
the "mother of all caravans" — over 20,000 people — is gathering in Honduras. Border
apprehensions exceeded 100,000 in March — the highest monthly total in twelve years.
Census and Citizenship:
The Wrong Question. As is so often the case with Democrats, they're attempting to sell this one on the basis of
principle, when it's about power and nothing else. Congressional districts are apportioned on the basis of the census
count, which includes illegals. So not counting citizens of other countries in the census means fewer Democrats in
Congress. Population — of Americans and otherwise — is also the basis for handing out federal
grant money. These are the only reasons why Democrats don't want to scare off Mexicans and Colombians and Salvadorans
and Guatemalans from participating in the census. They also explain why when Democrats say they too want border
security, they're lying. They don't. It's not in their power interest to in any way slow the flow of undocumented
Democrats from south of the border.
ready to apologize to US over border incident: AMLO. Mexico's president said Thursday he was willing to
offer an apology to the United States, if necessary, to cool an escalating war of words over a border confrontation between
US and Mexican troops. "If necessary, the secretary of foreign affairs will send a note explaining how the facts
occurred and, if there was an infraction; he will offer the apologies that are required," President Andres Manuel Lopez
Obrador said in his daily news conference. The leftist president was keen to emphasize that Mexico wanted to avoid "any
kind of friction, confrontation," with the United States, it's main trading partner.
Patrol agent: Human smugglers running radio ads in Central American countries. A Border Patrol agent
giving a tour of the El Paso, Texas region to a reporter said human smugglers list advertisements on radio stations in
some Central American countries, telling people they will transport them to the United States. "The word is definitely
out. They have advertisements by radio. You listen to your radio on your way to work — on your way to
the grocery store. And that country is advertising, 'If you want the American dream, we'll help you out —
we'll teach you how to get in the United States,'" the agent told Maria Bartiromo for a Fox News interview that aired Sunday
[4/28/2019]. The agent appeared on camera with Bartiromo, but was not identified.
More than 1,000 Cuban
migrants break out of Mexican immigration facility. Hundreds of Cuban migrants are reported to be on the run
Friday in Mexico after a crowd of more than 1,000 burst out of a troubled immigration detention center on its southern
border. Mexico's National Immigration Institute said the mass escape Thursday in Tapachula — which the
Associated Press called the largest in recent memory — involved around 1,300 Cuban migrants, although 700 of
them have since returned voluntarily.
Apprehended During Maria Bartiromo Live Report. Maria Bartiromo broadcast her show, Sunday Morning Futures,
from the southern US border near El Paso, Texas this weekend. During her live broadcast a family of illegal aliens
crossed over into the US from Mexico. The family from Honduras told Maria Bartiromo they were told in Honduras that
they could stay in the US when they crossed the border.
of migrants board 'the Beast' train in Mexico in risky move to get closer to US border. Hundreds of migrants
boarded a train known as the "The Beast" in southern Mexico on Thursday [4/25/2019], in a risky move aimed at transporting
them to the U.S. border quicker. The decision to board the train en masse comes after a breakout of migrants from a
troubled immigration detention center in the southern border city of Tapachula on Thursday night [4/25/2019].
1,000 migrants break out of southern Mexico detention center. More than a thousand migrants broke out of a
detention center in southern Mexico on Thursday evening, authorities said, in a fresh sign of how a surge in arrivals has
stretched the country's resources to the limit. [Video clip]
Immigration Is A Powder Keg In LA. My oldest daughter lives in Los Angeles, a short walk from MacArthur Park.
[...] Far outside the political incubators of Nancy Pelosi, Kamala Harris, Eric Swalwell, Adam Schiff and Maxine
Waters — all of them California lawmakers — my daughter bears the brunt of the raw political debris
created by deeply devious politicians who excrete pious lies about how much they care about minorities. In utter
frustration, my daughter texted me a video that she filmed near her apartment. I was shocked at what I saw:
Cluster after cluster of illegals lined along public streets selling anything they could find, spread over raggedy blankets
or anything else they could use to form a boundary for their slipshod sidewalk stores. "They are above the law," she
wrote. "How can you sell so much food on the street without a permit? Without the grading system? I didn't
know you could have a business and not pay taxes. They're spreading, too. [...]"
Truth About The Invasion of America. Countless people have asked me why our President — who promised
national security above all else — is not fulfilling that all-important promise, and the answer is not as simple
as a new Homeland Security Secretary. Here's what I know, and I cannot sound the alarm loudly enough. Congress,
Speaker Pelosi, the Democrats, Mitch McConnell, and the RINOs passed a bill that completely sold out American citizens and
hardworking taxpayers — all middle and lower-income America — and crammed it down the President's
throat. An inner circle of people in the White House do not share the MAGA agenda and either mislead the President or
flat-out lied to him about it all. And, the National Emergency Declaration won't fix it. The bill they crammed
through aids and abets the Mexican criminal cartels, boosting their billion-dollar-business by multi-millions of dollars a
month. It's a neon sign inviting human-traffickers and other criminals to grab children and pour into the United
States. It is worse than amnesty.
Look Now, But Mexico Just Busted A Migrant Caravan. Less than a week ago, President Trump issued a stern
warning to the government of Mexico. They would need to step up their efforts to halt these caravans of migrants
surging toward the United States or we would need to take steps that could impact both domestic policy on the southern border
and endanger trade negotiations with that country. Do you think President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO)
was paying attention? The news from the southern portion of Mexico last night would indicate that he received the
message loud and clear. A new migrant caravan had been making their way north, but instead of being welcomed with
applications for asylum, hundreds were arrested by federal police and detained to await deportation.
rounding up, deporting migrants hoping to reach U.S.. Mexico has deported about 15,000 migrants from Central
America who'd been part of a caravan trying to reach the United States, Mexican officials said. Mexican President
Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has changed his policy for migrant caravans, amid pressure from U.S. President Donald
Trump. Migrant groups that used to be welcomed in Mexico are now being detained by police and sent back.
Migrants fearful after hundreds
arrested in Mexico raid. Central American migrants traveling through southern Mexico toward the U.S. on Tuesday
[4/23/2019] fearfully recalled their frantic escape from police the previous day, scuttling under barbed wire fences into
pastures and then spending the night in the woods after hundreds were detained in a raid.
Bill Would Give Illegal Aliens Driver's Licenses, Possible Voting Rights. The Oregon legislature is moving
ahead with a bill that would allow illegal aliens to obtain driver's licenses. House Bill 2015 "Eliminates requirement
that person provide proof of legal presence before Department of Transportation issues noncommercial driver license,
noncommercial driver permit or identification card."
Trump, Here Are Five Reasons Why Obama Should Have Been Impeached. [#5] Obama's dictatorial approach to
governing would manifest itself many times during his presidency, and any one of them should have had Congress using their
check on executive overreach, the power to impeach, but for reasons that can't be justified, it never happened. One
such example is Obama's unilateral writing of immigration law. It is quite clear that Congress has the power to write
immigration law, but Obama decided that since Congress wouldn't act (and by that, he meant to do exactly what he wanted) he'd
simply create a law with his executive pen. When the DREAM Act failed to pass Congress he simply began enforcing it
without Congress's consent by issuing an executive order, known as DACA. It was unconstitutional (even Obama repeatedly
admitted that he didn't have to power to create immigration law) and his blatant disregard for the Constitution should have
resulted in articles of impeachment being drafted immediately.
American Military at the Border Near Clint, Texas, Followed All Proper Protocols. Two U.S. soldiers were
confronted and disarmed by Mexican troops in an incident on the U.S.-Mexico border almost two weeks ago. The story has
received a lot of attention — and has seen critics of the soldiers' actions voice their opinions on social
media. Before anyone begins dissecting what the soldiers did right or wrong, it's important to understand what actually
happened. On April 13, two active-duty U.S. soldiers were conducting a patrol in a Customs and Border Protection
(CBP) vehicle in the vicinity of Clint, Texas. The area they were in is on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande, but it is
still U.S. soil.
details in that incident where U.S. soldiers were disarmed by Mexican troops on the U.S. side of the border. A
couple days ago, Mexican troops reportedly came over into U.S. territory near El Paso in an unmarked vehicle on April 13,
and disarmed the U.S. soldiers on the U.S. side, sent by President Trump to support U.S. border protection operations.
Weirdly, they took the U.S. soldiers' weapons they'd confiscated, and then placed them into the soldiers' own vehicles and
left. Did they do that pointless exercise to show who was boss in those parts? It's hard to say.
of Armed Mexican Soldiers Disarm, Detain US Soldiers on Texas Side of Border. A group of armed Mexican soldiers
disarmed and detained two US soldiers on the US side of the border near Clint, Texas on April 13th. Officials with US
Northern Command told CNN that "The U.S. soldiers were appropriately in U.S. territory," and were reportedly providing border
support "in an unmarked (U.S. Customs and Border Protection) vehicle."
Soldiers Question, Disarm Two U.S. Army Troops In Apparent Confusion About Border Location, Incident Documents Reveal.
Two U.S. Army soldiers sat in an unmarked Chevrolet Tahoe owned by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on the west side of an
El Paso County, Texas, Colonia known as Las Pampas. It was April 13, and the Army sergeant and private had
set up a hasty observation post north of the Rio Grande River, but south of the border fence in U.S. territory.
The soldiers were members of B Battery, 1st Battalion, 37th Field Artillery Regiment, out of Joint Base Lewis-McChord in
Washington. The unit, part of the southwest border mission President Donald Trump first ordered in October 2018,
recently had their deployment extended to September.
has the power to end judicial amnesty TODAY under CURRENT law. Last week, near Philadelphia, yet another alleged illegal
alien child molester was arrested on charges of attempting to lure minors. Twenty-five-year-old Eudy Najera-Arita, an illegal
alien from Honduras, was arrested in Delaware County, PA, in connection with two luring attempts of minors and exposing himself to
one of the girls. As has been my practice in these cases, I reached out to Immigration and Customs Enforcement to get his
immigration history. I asked if Najera-Arita was previously deported and reentered unknowingly or if he had been in this
country undetected until local police picked him up on April 9. To my shock, it was neither. He was known to
immigration officials, but was indeed never deported.
Simple, Effective Comprehensive Illegal Immigration Reform Plan: Go Home. This is my elegant,
uncomplicated comprehensive immigration reform plan. If we did not invite you in — if you didn't have the
basic courtesy and respect for this country to ask to come here, then get out. And don't come back — if you
snuck into America, you don't get to come back. It's simple and fair. The fair part is important, because it's
about time that our immigration laws be fair to the only people who should matter when we make our policies —
to evict illegals. The Housing and Urban Development told Congress it plans to scrap a Bill Clinton rule that
allowed illegal aliens to get public housing assistance. This is part of President Donald John Trump's plan to remove
bad policies from all prior presidents, not just Obama. The Washington Times reported we stopped asking more than
20 years ago people if they are citizens or if they are even here legally. Taxpayers just shelled housing subsidies
out, no questions asked. The money goes to landlords, who had no incentive to check whether a renter is legal or not.
Mexico declares state of emergency over influx of migrants: report. A New Mexico county on Wednesday
[4/17/2019] declared a state of emergency over an influx of immigrants crossing the border in recent months and asked the
governor to send in the National Guard for protection, according to a report. Otero County, which touches neighboring
El Paso, issued a declaration Wednesday that urged Democratic Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham to deploy National Guard
Troops and reopen Customs and Border Patrol checkpoints to stem the flow of drugs and other illegal activity at the border,
The Alamogordo Daily News reported.
line they cut into: Illegals get free public housing as impoverished Americans wait. Want some
perspective on why so many blue sanctuary cities have so many homeless encampments hovering around? Try the reality
that illegal immigrants are routinely given free public housing by the U.S., based on the fact that they are uneducated,
unskilled, and largely unemployable. Those are the criteria, and now importing poverty has never been easier.
Shockingly, this comes as millions of poor Americans are out in the cold awaiting that housing that the original law was
intended to help. Thus, the tent cities, and by coincidence, the worst of these emerging shantytowns are in blue
sanctuary cities loaded with illegal immigrants — Orange County, San Francisco, San Diego, Seattle, New York...
Is there a connection? At a minimum, it's worth looking at.
Blockades Bring Mexican Border City near Texas to Standstill. A series of blockades in the Mexican border city
of Nuevo Laredo brought traffic to a complete halt. Mexican authorities deployed a large number of police and military
forces in case gun battles erupted while they confronted the causes of congestion.
That Can't Go on Forever Simply Don't. Most of the people who enter the United States illegally arrive without
fluency in English, a high-school diploma, competitive job skills or money. The majority will require support
subsidies, and collectively they will require increased legal and law-enforcement investments. At some point, American
social services will be so taxed that the system will be rendered dysfunctional — as is already occurring in areas
of the American Southwest. Or, some regions of America will so resemble the countries undocumented immigrants abandoned
that there will be little point in heading north. Either way, the current border chaos will find its own
self-correcting mechanisms, even if that means there will be no border at all — or northern Mexico and the
southern United States will become indistinguishable.
Halts Bail For Asylum Seekers. That's one way to end catch-and-release — in theory. In
practice, William Barr's decision to end bail for asylum seekers might turn the crisis at the border into a
catastrophe. Or at least into a powerful disincentive.
General Barr Blocks Catch and Release by Migration Judges. Immigration judges cannot release migrants who are
caught sneaking into the United States, even if the migrants ask for asylum, says a binding legal decision by Attorney
General William Barr. The decision will dramatically shift the migration-caused civic and housing crises from the
nation's blue-collar communities over to the Congress and the Department of Homeland Security, whose budget and detention
centers only have enough resources to house about 50,000 people year-round.
invasion: Over 750K work permits handed out to largely bogus asylum applicants. During a campaign rally
on August 31, 2016, Donald Trump promised to "immediately terminate President Obama's two illegal executive amnesties in
which he defied federal law and the constitution to give amnesty to approximately five million illegal immigrants."
Unfortunately, almost three years later, not only is the DACA amnesty alive and well, an entirely new amnesty for hundreds of
thousands of bogus asylees, which is fueling the core magnet of today's border invasion, is growing like wildfire. The
million-dollar question is why is the administration continuing to give hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants work permits?
AZ mayor declares state of emergency as migrants inundate the city. The mayor of Yuma, Arizona has declared a
local state of emergency due to the flood of migrants, released from custody, who are overwhelming his city and is asking the
federal government for help. Yuma mayor Douglas Nicholls said the crisis is overtaxing the city's ability to care for
the flood of released immigration detainees — many of them families — who have filled the shelters to
capacity, with more coming every day.
city overwhelmed by migrants declares state of emergency. Yuma, a city on the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona,
declared a state of emergency Tuesday, saying it cannot handle the crush of illegal immigrants the government is being forced
to release onto its streets. Mayor Douglas Nicholls said the migrants are being released by the Border Patrol into his
community faster than they can leave, and local shelters are already at capacity. He warned of mobs of people "roaming
the streets looking to satisfy basic human needs," clashing with citizens looking to protect their own property.
illegal immigrants arrive here as ready-made Democrats. The news from Mexico is that President Andrés
Manuel López Obrador has halted efforts to reform Mexico's underperforming education system. [...] For Democrats here,
though, it's the perfect formula for new voters. It's not that its people are poorly educated, though that's a major
issue, actually. It's that a good look at that system shows that pretty much the only education they receive at all is
Marxist indoctrination. Combine that with sub-literacy, and the people who are the products of this system are as
malleable as clay in the hands of leftist demagogues.
Research: Hispanics to Outpace Black Americans as Largest Voting Minority in 2020. Hispanic Americans are
set to outpace black Americans as the largest voting minority group in the 2020 election for the first time ever, new
research finds. Pew Research Center projections predict that Hispanic American voters will now be the largest voting
minority in the 2020 presidential election, passing black American voters for the first time in United States history.
Hispanics have been the largest minority group in the U.S. since 2003.
The Border Disaster Goes from
Bad to Worse. On April 9, 2019, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) released its latest numbers from the
Southwest border. Last week, I estimated that 100,000 aliens would have been apprehended between the ports of entry and
deemed inadmissible at the ports of entry, along that border in March 2019. I am man enough to admit when I was wrong:
There were actually 103,492, up from 76,535 the month before, a 135 percent increase over an already unbelievable flood.
If only the bad news ended there. Of that 103,492, Border Patrol apprehended 53,077 aliens traveling in family units (that is
at least one adult traveling with at least one child) last month, up from 36,531 family units the month before, a 145 percent
increase. Border Patrol also apprehended 8,975 unaccompanied alien children (UAC), up from 6,828 in March, a 131 percent
increase. At the ports, CBP officers in the Office of Field Operations (OFO) deemed 4,194 family units inadmissible, which was
actually down from 4,210 the month before. This likely reflects the fact that aliens did not want to wait at ports of entry for
their opportunity to claim credible fear, but decided to enter illegally to do so instead.
Only 13% of all Asylum Claims are Legitimate. When dealing with immigrants claiming to be seeking asylum.
There are laws. However, the Democrats want to go against these laws. They want all the immigrants to be released
into the country. However, only a small amount of immigrants are legitimately applying for asylum. Interestingly,
the law states that the Immigration and Nationality Act says that anyone who arrives at the U.S. may apply for asylum based
on a well-founded fear of persecution, and Trump's decision has prompted immediate federal court challenges.
Graham to introduce long overdue asylum reform bill. The recent wave of asylum-seekers from Central America who
have shown up at our southern border points out the desperate need for reforming our asylum laws and procedures. The
fact is, few asylum-seekers will be successful because they don't come here to escape religious persecution or political
oppression. They come for "a better life." You can hardly blame them for that, considering the hell-holes they are
trying to escape. But asylum laws were written not to give people a better life. And the fact that so many
asylum-seekers are allowed to stay in the U.S. until their cases are decided in court means that many tens of thousands will
become permanent illegal residents.
Company Faked White-Collar Jobs for 1,900 Chinese Migrants. The U.S. government awarded hundreds of work
permits in 2017 to a front company that, according to an FBI statement, trafficked almost 2,000 Chinese graduates into the
U.S. white-collar labor market. The March 28 FBI document alleges that a Chinese migrant named Weiyun Huang took
money to issue fraudulent claims of employment to Chinese students who were seeking to get "Optional Practical Training" work
permits. Huang was arrested March 26, the document says.

There Any Limits to Illegal Immigration? If one reads either the local or regional papers, it is composed of
stories about one of three themes. One, the disturbing litany of DUIs, gang stabbings and shootings, fatal hit-and-run
accidents, police shootings of armed suspects, high-speed chases, robberies, and drug busts. Two, there are also many
human interest inspirational stories of illegal aliens from Mexico who are running successful businesses, whose children are
star athletes or students. [...] Three, the grievance or victimization meme: the lawsuit against law enforcement, the
filing of a bias claim against the county, the firing of an official for some alleged insensitivity, or the injustice of some
agency that has curtailed support from, tried to deport, or was somehow biased against, an illegal alien. The point is,
that unlike the past, almost every new story is grounded in some sort of overt ethnic context, and ultimately related
to illegal immigration and its effects.
Circuit Court Stays Lower Court Injunction — Migrants Can Be Returned to Mexico. The ninth circuit
court of appeals has ruled unanimously in favor of staying an earlier ruling from Federal Judge Richard Seeborg which blocked
President Trump from returning illegal aliens (economic migrants) to Mexico pending their asylum hearing. The
repatriation/deportation program can continue. A major win for President Trump[.]
can keep sending asylum-seekers back to Mexico: court ruling. The Trump administration can keep sending asylum
seekers back to Mexico after an appeals court temporarily reversed a ruling that halted the policy. The decision from
the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals came Friday [4/12/2019] as the asylum policy was set to end on Monday night. The
government told the court that the U.S. is facing "a humanitarian and security crisis" at the southern border and needs the
policy to deal with surging number of refugees, Reuters reported. Friday's two-paragraph decision marked a rare ruling
from the 9th Circuit in favor of Trump, who has criticized the court for blocking his immigration policy in previous cases.
you believe what the president said about immigration? [Scroll down] As recently as 2009, Senate Minority
Leader Chuck Schumer condemned illegal immigration as "wrong — plain and simple." Four years earlier, Barack Obama
campaigned on a platform of ending illegal immigration, explaining "We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States
undetected, undocumented, and unchecked." Aside from the obvious security dangers, unvetted illegal immigration, Obama noted,
is unfair to "the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants in this country."
Obama's concerns over security, assimilation, and fairness fall on deaf ears among Democrats today.

more than 260,000 Hondurans and Guatemalans are expected to arrive in the United States by 2020, according to an analysis by
The Guardian. The analysis reveals that about one percent of the total population of Guatemala and Honduras —
about 26 million — may arrive in the U.S. by the end of the year should current levels of immigration continue.
of the $33 Billion in Remittances to Mexico Flow Via U.S. Govt. Banking Program. Though President Trump
said he would block money transfers to Mexico to fund a much-needed border wall, Mexicans in the U.S. sent a record $33.48 billion
in remittances last year and a big chunk of it flowed through a government program operated by the Federal Reserve. This means
that, amid an onslaught of illegal immigration, the U.S. government is largely responsible for the billions in remittances flowing
south of the border from illegal aliens. Figures released by Mexico's central bank show that 104 million transactions
were executed in 2018, nearly six million more than the previous year. Uncle Sam facilitates the process with a program
called "Directo a Mexico" (Direct to Mexico), launched by the Federal Reserve, the government agency that serves as the nation's
central bank, more than a decade ago.
migrant caravan sets out in Honduras. Hundreds of Honduran migrants, many carrying young children, set out in a

says Central American migrants [are] worse than Mexicans. President Trump suggested Wednesday [4/10/2019] that
illegal immigrants from Central America are worse than those from Mexico, changing tone from his campaign declaration that
Mexico was sending the worst of the worst to the U.S. "Those countries are sending the tough ones. They are sending
the gang members," the president said during roundtable in Texas. "People from Mexico, they come in and help with the
farming and they go out, no problem."
Trump pulling up the drawbridge on goodies for illegals. With the wall still in the works, President Trump
isn't sitting idle as 1.5 million illegal migrants prepare to storm the U.S. border this year. He's moving swiftly
to get some kind of handle on the migrant surge by strengthening the U.S.'s loophole-filled system of laws that have made
immigrating here illegally more attractive to would-be migrants than following U.S. law.
The U.S. Immigration
System May Have Reached a Breaking Point. Gone are the days when young, strong men waited on the Tijuana River
levees for their chance to wade across the water, evade capture and find work for the summer. These days, thousands of
people a day simply walk up to the border and surrender. Most of them are from Central America, seeking to escape from
gang violence, sexual abuse, death threats and persistent poverty. The smugglers have told them they will be quickly
released, as long as they bring a child, and that they will be allowed to remain in the United States for years while they
pursue their asylum cases.
and smuggle: Mexican cartels divert border cops with migrant surges and ferry drugs where the coast is clear. A
northern Texas sheriff says his county has seen a big uptick in methamphetamine and heroin seizures since October, saying Mexican drug
smugglers are using large groups of migrants to divert Border Patrol's attention while they run narcotics over the border in nearby
areas. Tarrant County Sheriff Bill E. Waybourn told the Washington Examiner drug seizures have picked up since
2016 and spiked "tremendously" in the past six months just as groups of 100 or more people began showing up at the border.
from 50 countries illegally entering US: Border Patrol official. Illegal immigrants from 50 different
countries — including China, Bangladesh, Turkey, Egypt and Romania — have been caught crossing into the
US from Mexico, a top Border Patrol official testified Tuesday [4/9/2019]. "People are traveling across hemispheres to
attempt to illegally enter the US, using the same pathways as the Central Americans," Rio Grande Valley Sector Chief Patrol
Agent Rodolfo Karisch said at a Senate Homeland Security Committee hearing. The revelation came as President Trump said
he would not relaunch his administration's policy of separating children from their families at the southern border —
but continued railing against the surge of Central American asylum seekers seeking entry to the US.
On Illegal Immigration, the Democrats Are Nuts. Do you think illegal immigration is a serious problem? If
you are like 67 percent of likely voters, you do. If you think illegal immigration is a very serious problem,
you have plenty of company — 47 percent of voters. Of course, if you are running for president as a Democrat,
you don't think illegal immigration is a problem at all. Eight percent of likely voters agree with you. Not only
do none of the Democratic presidential candidates want to build the wall, some of them want to tear down barriers where they

Lawfare with the border crisis? Well, this is not an ordinary President. In a move that is straight out of the
Alinsky 'make them play by their own rules' playbook, President Trump enforces the rules. Amid a crisis of
growing consequence, President Trump announces deployment of additional 750 Border Agents to U.S-Mexico specific ports of entry.
Border Crisis Is A Money-Making Machine For Smugglers. McAllen, a city of fewer than 150,000 residents, is now
facing the prospect of thousands of migrants discharged from ICE custody, wandering the streets and sleeping in doorways and
on park benches — the city's mayor has said as much. What's more, in February the city ordered Catholic
Charities to vacate the former nursing home and find a new location within 90 days, citing complaints from neighbors about
constant traffic and strangers wandering nearby streets where children play. By any measure, the situation in McAllen
is an emergency. This is just one border town in Texas. Something similar is playing out all up and down the
lede: So now we have caravans loading up with migrants from Sri Lanka, Congo, Haiti? In its story about
thousands of caravan migrants encountering a slow-walk for "humanitarian" visas of passage to the U.S. from Mexican
officials, Reuters let out a doozy of a detail way down in its story about the matter: ["]At the border town of
Tapachula, near the southern tip of Mexico bordering Guatemala, another group included people from Sri Lanka, Congo and
Haiti, a federal official said. Some migrants said Mexican officials had slowed down the process of awarding the visas
or denied them outright without providing any explanation. A small group lashed out at border officials in Tapachula on
Tuesday over the delays, throwing rocks and breaking windows of a local migration institute building.["] Lovely
bunch, aren't they, with their demands for instant customer service from Mexican officials? They've obviously got a lot
of money for plane flights to places like Mexico along with cartel smuggler fees, therefore they are accustomed to such
service. In fact, they are convinced they are entitled to it, same as they get at the Hertz counter. When they
don't, they resort to road rage-style brick-throwing.
67% Of Likely Voters Say Illegal Immigration Is A Serious Problem, Most Believe Democrats Don't Want To Stop
It. A new Rasmussen poll conducted this week indicates that 67% of likely United States voters believe that
illegal immigration is a "serious problem" in the country today, but the plurality of those who took the survey do not
believe that the Democratic Party in Congress "wants to slow or stop illegal immigration." The percentage of likely
voters who said illegal immigration is a "serious issue" has not changed since a similar poll conducted in January asked the
same question. Furthermore, it could be argued that Americans are becoming less concerned with illegal immigration
during President Trump's time in office as a similar 2015 poll found that 80% of likely voters said that it was a serious
as Economic Warfare. Political influence in America is garnered through a number of mechanisms —
campaign contributions, social media, YouTube, news channels, and authority from moral figures such as the church, to name a
few. However, the dominant force in American politics for the last two decades has been economic warfare against
American citizens. This economic warfare has two primary components; the use of government to economically favor one
group over another; and the collusion of immigrant groups to economically inhibit Americans who oppose replacement
migration. The first aspect of this warfare is simple. The government institutes programs that give special
privileges to one group of people in the form of educational access and benefits, exclusive contracts with the government,
quotas within the job market, and legal protections that are exclusive to those people. While many of these benefits
are subtle, on multigenerational timelines they effectively destroy the unprotected group while ensuring the success of the
protected group. In addition to this, there is the selective enforcement of laws and the absolution of some groups from

The immigration officers are just doing their jobs, and the news media covers the event like it's an act of terrorism.
Kilmeade complains illegals who don't speak English are being 'dumped' into working class schools and libs didn't like his
language. If we've learned anything by this point it's that complaints about the ill effects of illegal
immigration will be met with a fierce defense by Democrats and their liberal media allies — the objective being to
shut down all debate over what's come to be a burden on the country. "Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade saw the
effects of this Wednesday when he spoke about illegal immigrants who don't speak English being "dumped" in working class
schools. Kilmeade made the comment in a segment focused on President Trump threatening to shut down the southern border
as Border Patrol has been overwhelmed by an endless wave of illegal immigrants, many of them women and children from Central
America, with reports of a massive caravan heading our way.
administration is expanding program that boots asylum seekers back to Mexico. The Trump administration will be
increasing the number of Central American asylum seekers who are sent back to Mexico to await their court case.
Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen announced Monday she will be expanding the "Migrant Protection Protocols"
program, more popularly known as "Remain in Mexico." Nielsen, in a memo sent to the federal borer chief, ordered Customs and
Border Protection agents deployed on the U.S.-Mexico border to begin reviewing hundreds of migrant cases a day to determine
if they should be booted back to Mexico.
Okay Fine, There's a Crisis at the Border. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen is in El Paso
today [4/3/2019] as the crisis on the border continues to rage. On Thursday, she will travel to Yuma, Arizona, where a border
barrier has been used to successfully stop illegal immigration, human trafficking and drug flow. During an interview Tuesday
night with Fox News, Nielsen described the DHS response to the chaos as "category 5 hurricane." In other words, as many
resources as possible are being diverted to address the issue.
Research: U.S. Home to Nearly 20% of World's Migrant Population. The United States is home to nearly 20 percent
of the globe's migrant population, a new study finds. The Pew Research Center reveals in a new study that the U.S. has admitted more
foreign nationals than any other country in the world. Roughly 18 percent of the world's migrant population lives in the U.S.,
the study found. About 44.5 million foreign-born residents now live in the U.S., far surpassing Germany's 12.2 million
foreign-born population and Russia's nearly 12 million foreign-born population.
of duty: The border crisis is Congress' fault. President Trump's threat to close down the border with
Mexico isn't a sign of strength, but of frustration fading into desperation. He is reacting with understandable alarm
at a spiraling migrant crisis on the border, and looking to Mexico to address it because we are unwilling to do it on our
own — not unable, unwilling. There were more than 100,000 apprehensions at the border in March, an increase
from the 76,000 in February. The numbers for both months were the highest in 10 years. The total for the fiscal
year could hit a million, a historic surge completely overwhelming our capabilities.
Get Awkward When Tucker Asks Mexican Official Why Mexico Won't Let Central Americans Stay. Things got awkward
fast when Tucker Carlson asked a Mexican official why Central Americans migrating through Mexico shouldn't be allowed to
remain there. Speaking with Guanajuato Secretary of Migration Juan Hernandez on Wednesday night's edition of "Tucker
Carlson Tonight," the Fox News host began by asking why Hernandez's own words from the past wouldn't constitute a "hostile
act" against the United States.
Ramos: Amnesty for Illegals, Migrants: 'Nothing We Can Do to Stop Them'. Univision anchor Jorge Ramos
said on Tuesday evening [4/2/2019] that he believes the solution to the migrant crisis at U.S.-Mexico border is to just legalize illegal
immigrants because "nobody can really stop them" from entering the United States. "The U.S. economy has been absorbing
them and it seems that we have to realize that the only way to deal with this is in a legal way," Ramos told CNN's Anderson
Cooper. "Just to understand that legally they are going to keep coming and there is really nothing we can do to stop them."
our government stopped the 1989 asylum surge BEFORE it got out of control. In 1984, the WSJ published an op-ed,
"In Praise of Huddled Masses." "We propose a five-word constitutional amendment: There shall be open borders." Well,
35 years later, that is exactly what we have. Our government is now telling us that the laws, which actually say the
opposite, compel them to let anyone in. We didn't even need a constitutional amendment to create open borders. We
just needed judges. As we allow nearly everyone into our country and release them into our communities, the "mother of
all caravans" is forming in Honduras, according to media in Mexico. Was there ever a time in history when we allowed
this to go on? Remember, our current laws have been in place since 1952, and the updated asylum statutes have been in
place since 1980. We've been through this before, only then, as I demonstrated with the case of the Haitian boat people in
1993, our government shut it down immediately.

Not long ago, the Democratic Party's mantra on abortion was that the unfortunate practice ought to be "safe, legal and rare."
Nobody is pro-abortion, they told us. Today, the party votes in virtual lockstep against any and all measures that would
limit even the most extreme and unpopular forms of abortion, including recent legislation barring elective late-term abortions, and a
bill to require medical care for infants born alive after failed abortions. Not a single Democrat running for president has even
hinted that the 'right' to abortion should be curtailed or limited in any way, at any point, for any reason — including the
supposed "moderates" in the race.
can keep the ports open to commerce, secure our borders, and eat our avocados too. There is a difference
between shutting down the border for commerce and suspending all immigration at our border. The good news is that the
media are finally admitting that the president has the authority to close the border. The bad news is that they are
obfuscating the distinction between shutting off the entire border for commerce and suspending immigration requests at the
border. The Trump administration would be wise to push back against it immediately and clarify this distinction.
The media is in full meltdown mode over Trump's threat to "shut down" the border, as they predict doom and gloom for our
economy, loss of jobs, and loss of revenue. We might even face an avocado shortage, according to the New York
Times! Imagine that. Never mind that the cost of one year's border flow could add up to at least
$150 billion for taxpayers.

Atrocious grammar alert: The phrase could add up to at least
$150 billion means it "could add a maximum of a minimum of $150 billion."
Orders 'Emergency Surge Operations' on Southwest Border. The Trump administration is speeding up the temporary
deployment of another 750 Customs and Border Protection (CBP) personnel — and possibly more — to parts
of the Southwest border most affected by the influx of migrants. The administration also has directed CBP to return to
Mexico hundreds of migrants more each day than are currently being sent back. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen
Nielsen issued the directives in a memorandum to CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan on Monday [4/1/2019], telling him to
initiate "emergency surge operations."
It's a 'Cat
5' immigration crisis: Nielsen. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Tuesday that the Trump
administration is treating the immigration crisis as a "Cat 5 hurricane disaster." "We are bringing all of the agencies
together; we're asking everybody to chip in," Nielsen said on "Tucker Carlson Tonight." "Why wouldn't we put the U.S.
military along our border if it's really a crisis of that magnitude?" Carlson asked Secretary Nielsen. "I think we're
looking into that. We've made the request. I'm in constant contact with the acting secretary of defense. I
talked to some of the combatant commanders today. We are in fact pushing more and more military resources to the
border," Nielsen said.
real prime target of Trump's threat to close the border. Ever since NAFTA, huge investments have taken place predicted [sic] on the
free movement of good across the border. Those investments are now held hostage by Trump's threat. The implicit deal: either
loudly and emphatically lobby for a simple revision to immigration law to allow asylum claimants to wait on the southern side of the border while
their claims are adjudicated or endure a semi-catastrophic disruption. Trump knows that he has an excellent public case to make for this
simple reform. With illegals now well aware that bringing along minors and an asylum claim guarantee admission to the USA, a hundred
thousand a month are flooding in. The claims of a "manufactured crisis" look silly. Even Jeh Johnson, Obama's DHS secretary admits
it is real.
bad does border have to be for Democrats to admit it's an emergency? Is there any number of illegal border
crossings into the United States that would strike Democrats as an emergency? As they resisted President Trump's
efforts to stem the flow of illegal migrants across the U.S.-Mexico border, many Democrats made the point that fewer migrants
are coming today than years ago, during the Bill Clinton and George W. Bush presidencies. The implication was that
today's situation cannot be an emergency, because it used to be worse.
Cloward and Piven
on Steroids. Many Americans are asking why the Democrats and their running dog RINO accomplices in Congress are
so adamantly refusing to move to even slow, much less stop, the massive invasion of illegal aliens across our southern
border. It's an excellent question to which there are seemingly myriad answers, many of which are partially
correct. However, underlying them all is one that is now fundamental, the driver, that is propelling the juggernaught
[sic]: the Cloward and Piven strategy.
Gutierrez: There Should be Welcoming Centers in Every Major City for Illegal Caravan Migrants. Former
lawmaker Democrat Luis Gutierrez wants welcome centers in every major US city for illegal caravan migrants. This is a
party that seeks a national suicide.
Another sob story in the left-wing media:
the bridge: migrants held in El Paso tell of dust, cold and hunger. For three days and nights, Maria and her
14-year-old son were penned behind barbed wire, under a bridge in El Paso. Cold, hungry, surrounded by sick and crying
babies and with only the stony ground for a bed, her first experience of America was not as she had imagined. "I came
here to work and get a better future for my family," she said. "I never thought I would go through this."
The Editor says...
Hey, Maria. Tell them you want to go back to Mexico, right now. Just say, "I dare you to deport me!"
They will probably let you leave. Then, for the rest of your life, tell everyone in Mexico how terrible it was in the U.S.
if ICE didn't have enough work, 24 immigrants go on a hunger strike to protest their detention. Migrants being
held in a Louisiana detention center are continuing a hunger strike in protest while they await their asylum claims to be
processed. The strike protesting their detention began last week with about 150 people, immigrant advocates told The
Associated Press, while U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement report that only 24 people have continuously refused to eat
surge overwhelms San Antonio. The surge of migrant families crossing the southern border is overwhelming a bus
station and aid organizations in San Antonio.
Promotes and Celebrates Man Who Stopped ICE from Arresting Two Illegal Immigrants. A leftover from the weekend
involves New Day Saturday, which somehow manages to have even lower ratings than it's weekday counterpart. CNN's Victor
Blackwell and Christi Paul have a history of ridiculous immigration stories and unfairly attacking ICE. Just last year
the dynamic duo defended a man that was deported back to Mexico. What they didn't mention was that he was wanted for
murder. That might seem like an important detail to normal people but this is CNN we are talking about.
the long faces as Jeh Johnson, Obama's DHS Secretary, tells MSNBC that the border is 'truly in a crisis'. I
have significantly upgraded my opinion of Jeh Johnson, President Obama's secretary of homeland security. Appearing
Friday [3/29/2019] on Morning Joe, he was honest and blunt in addressing the border crisis, drawing on his own
experience and implicitly rebuking the Democrats' talking point that this is a "manufactured crisis."
cuts all direct assistance to Northern Triangle countries Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala. In a stunning
about-face, State Department officials said that President Donald Trump is cutting off all direct assistance to the so-called
Northern Triangle countries of El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. "At the Secretary's instruction, we are carrying
out the President's direction and ending FY [fiscal year] 2017 and FY 2018 foreign assistance programs for the Northern
Triangle," a State Department spokesperson told ABC News, referring to U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.
bows to Pres. Trump on 'containment' of illegal aliens. Mexico bowed to President Trump's border security
demands by agreeing to set up a Central American illegal alien "containment" belt 2,200 miles south of San Diego.
Mexico's socialist president, Andrés Manuel López-Obrador, known as "AMLO," trumpeted after his huge July victory
that he sympathized with migrants suffering from "hunger and poverty." He promised to slash funds dedicated to border
control and claimed that he would stand up to any of President Trump's bullying tactics.
Serious and Stop Rewarding Illegal Immigration,' Border Patrol Agent Says to Congress. Border Patrol Agent
Hector Garza told Fox News that Congress needs to "get serious and stop rewarding illegal immigration." His comments
follow one of the busiest weeks in Texas immigration history that saw nearly 1,700 migrants illegally cross the border in the
Rio Grande Valley Sector in a single day. "We have lost the ability to know who or what is coming across the border,"
Agent Garza told Fox & Friends during an interview on Thursday morning [3/28/2019].
Border Crossings Reach 4,100 Migrants in One Day. The number of migrants daily crossing the U.S. border hit a decade-long
record of 4,100 on Tuesday [3/26/2019], says border commissioner Kevin McAleenan. [...] The inflow includes a record number of youths and
children who are being delivered to the border by coyotes, often under a contract with the foreign parents who are already living and
working illegally in the underground economy.
says he 'may close the Southern Border' to stop flow of illegal immigrants. President Trump criticized Mexico
Thursday [3/27/2019] for not stopping the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States and said he "may close the
Southern Border" to prevent more from entering.
Patrol Shifted to Hospital Watch & Driving Illegal Aliens Around. In a press release posted late Wednesday night [3/27/2019],
U.S. Customs and Border Protection announced that 750 border agents have been pulled from their posts at the ports of entry in California,
Arizona, and Texas, in order to provide humanitarian care for the flood of illegal aliens coming across the border, including "hospital
watch and transportation." A top Border Patrol official announced on Wednesday that they have now reached the breaking point, and
are on track to apprehend over 100,000 illegal aliens in the month of March alone.
hits 'breaking point' in El Paso, CBP commissioner says. The nation's top border security official said
Wednesday that the border is at its "breaking point" during a visit to Texas, where as many as 1,000 migrants crossed into
the U.S. and there are not enough agents to respond. "That breaking point has arrived this week at our border," U.S.
Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin K. McAleenan said along the border. "CBP is facing an unprecedented
humanitarian and border security crisis all along our Southwest border, and nowhere has that crisis manifested more acutely
than here in El Paso."
Patrol rescues double-amputee illegal immigrant from middle of Rio Grande. Border Patrol agents had to rescue a
double-amputee illegal immigrant in a wheelchair from an island in the middle of the Rio Grande this week, a day after
pulling a deaf and dumb man from the water. The rescues are part of a pattern of increasingly frail or ailing migrants
attempting to sneak into the U.S., assisted by smuggling cartels eager to cash in on lax American enforcement policies.
In the case of the Guatemalan man in a wheelchair, he was spotted Wednesday [3/20/2019] by agents on a boat.
The Cloward-Piven strategy is working.
releasing 1,000 illegal immigrant family members a day. Deportation officers are cutting loose more than 1,000
illegal immigrant family members a day, setting them free into border states as the surge of migrations overwhelms the
government's ability to handle them, officials revealed Thursday [3/21/2019]. Over the last three months, about 107,000
family members were caught at the border and then released, with ankle monitoring devices or check-in schedules and the often
vain hope that they will show up for their court hearings and deportation.
remittances to Central America's big three hit record $17 billion in 2018. As the caravans keep rolling in, and
Congress does its darndest to prevent the construction of a border wall, journalists who follow the money can find some
striking news. The Washington Examiner's Paul Bedard has a good one on U.S. remittances to the three Central American
countries whose nationals are leading the surge across our unguarded southern border.
of illegal immigrants released into US amid overcrowding at detention facilities. The U.S. has started
releasing hundreds of illegal immigrant detainees into the country as immigration authorities struggle to find available
places to house the thousands of illegal migrants coming through the U.S.-Mexico border. Most of the released migrants
are expected to be those who crossed the border together with their families. Such migrants are given paper notices
with a court date and told to stay with their other family members in the U.S.
aren't we deporting illegal aliens who already have deportation orders? We are told by the legal profession
that nothing can be done to block bogus asylum-seekers from entering our country en masse, obtaining catch-and-release, and
remaining here pending the outcome of a court decision that may be years in coming. But why is the DHS not at least
deporting those who already went through this tedious process and have been ordered to be deported? Doing so would not
only help eliminate public charge and potential gang members and drug runners for MS-13, it would deter the current and
future wave waiting at the "conveyor belt" through Mexico from making the trip north.
SCOTUS Gives Trump
a Big Win on Immigration. On Tuesday [3/19/2019] the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Trump administration
in Nielsen v. Preap, allowing the Department of Homeland Security to detain illegal aliens without bond while
awaiting deportation for committing crimes within our borders. The decision reversed a ruling by the Ninth Circuit
Court of Appeals. It was authored by Justice Samuel Alito, who was joined by Chief Justice John Roberts as well as
Justices Thomas, Gorsuch, and Kavanaugh. The ruling involved a class-action lawsuit brought on behalf of various
resident aliens, including a few with Green Cards, convicted of crimes for which U.S. law mandates deportation.
Trump Wins SCOTUS Decision on Detainment and Deportation of Criminal Aliens. The Supreme Court reversed a prior
9th Circuit Court ruling restricting when illegal aliens could be detained and deported. The SCOTUS ruling was in favor
[of] the Trump administration, allowing federal officials to detain and deport illegal aliens after they have served their time
in the U.S. for other crimes regardless of whether they were picked up immediately or later, after criminal release.
Trump gets a
U.S. Supreme Court victory on immigration detention. The Supreme Court on Tuesday [3/19/2019] endorsed the U.S.
government's authority to detain immigrants awaiting deportation anytime — potentially even years — after they
have completed prison terms for criminal convictions, handing President Donald Trump a victory as he pursues
hardline immigration policies.
Enforcing the law is not a hardline immigration policy.
DHS on track to nab 100,000 illegals at border this month.
The government is on track to catch nearly 100,000 illegal immigrants at the border this month, Homeland Security Secretary
Kirstjen Nielsen said Monday, renewing the administration's plea for Congress to do something. That number would be the
worst in more than a decade, and it's more troubling than the worst years because the migrants are children and families who
despite being unauthorized, are almost impossible to deport.
nowhere near a solution to the immigration crisis. With President Trump simultaneously fighting much of his own
party as well as Democrats, a Yogi Berra classic fits the occasion: "It's deja vu all over again." More than two
years into his presidency, Trump is once again at odds with most of Washington. The first veto of his presidency reflects
his predicament, one of many perils he faces on the road to 2020. The politics notwithstanding, the president is right to
use executive power to find more funds for border barriers and security. To do otherwise would be to betray his promises
to secure the border and his responsibility to protect America.
the illegal immigrant 'conveyor belt' - in action. Want to see how the illegal immigrant 'conveyor belt'
works? Here in San Diego, a demonstration of it in action was posted by the San Diego office of the U.S. Border Patrol

Families Can No Longer Wait Inside Greyhound Bus Stations Without Tickets Due to New Policy. Greyhound Lines
Inc. is no longer allowing U.S. authorities to drop off immigrant families inside bus stations, forcing those who have been
released from custody to wait outside until they have a ticket. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement confirmed to
The Associated Press on Friday that it had been asked to drop off migrants outside facilities instead of busing them
in. ICE for years has dropped off migrants at Greyhound stations, largely in Phoenix, after releasing them pending
court hearings to decide whether they can stay in the country. From the stations, they travel to their intended
destination in the United States.
The Southern Border Is At The Breaking Point. You know things are bad when the New York Times runs an article
with the headline, "Border at 'Breaking Point' as More than 76,000 Unauthorized Migrants Cross in a Month." We
could quibble and point out they are illegal aliens, not "unauthorized migrants," but why argue details when your enemies are
finally helping you by telling the truth for a change? [...] [Kevin K.] McAleenan said processing centers filled to capacity,
border agents struggling to meet medical needs and thousands of exhausted members of migrant families crammed into a detention
system that was not built to house them — all while newcomers continue to arrive, sometimes by the busload, at the
rate of 2,200 a day according to [Caitlin] Dickerson's report.
Want Illegal Aliens Voting in U.S. Elections. In case you missed it last week, House Democrats voted against a
motion preventing illegal aliens from voting. [...] Meanwhile, Speaker Nancy Pelosi argued during a press conference last
week we should be welcoming our "newcomers" by allowing them to vote. "When we talk about newcomers, we have to
recognize the constant reinvigoration of America that they are, that we all have been, our families," Pelosi said in
Texas. "These newcomers make America more American. And we want them, when they come here, to be fully part of
our system and that means not suppressing the vote of our newcomers to America."
everyone sleeps, the courts are abolishing all immigration enforcement. Congress could never get away with
creating constitutional rights for illegal aliens to remain here, yet a single lower court just did so on Thursday [3/7/2019].
And where Congress would face deep reprisal in the next election, faceless judges will never feel the heat. Conservatives fear
that extreme Democrats might actually abolish ICE and all immigration enforcement, but the lower courts are already systematically
abolishing ICE's authority, nullifying immigration enforcement statutes, violating separation of powers, and constantly increasing
the wave of bogus asylum-seekers that they originally spawned with other radical rulings. The latest ruling from the Ninth
Circuit demonstrates that unless Republicans and the president begin pushing back against these radical judges and delegitimizing
their rulings, Democrats will get everything they want without ever facing electoral backlash or even the need to win elections.
Trump can use his 'pen and phone' to save billions and encourage immigrants to assimilate. President Trump has
a gigantic opportunity to accomplish two goals via an executive order. [...] Democrats are on the record celebrating the
power of presidents to issue executive orders and change federal policies. Barack Obama's boast that "I have a pen and
I've got a phone" was immediately preceded by a promise: "We're not just going to be waiting for legislation in order
to make sure that we're providing Americans the kind of help they need." And Bill Clinton, who issued the executive order
requiring translations, was advised by Paul Begala, who celebrated that power with the immortal words, "Stroke of the
pen. Law of the land. Kinda cool." I, for one, would greatly enjoy the spectacle of Progressives venting
their outrage over such a move. They would hyperventilate over cruelty and being unwelcoming, but the fact is that by
enabling people to avoid acquiring English proficiency, they condemn them to permanent second-class economic status.
2 for Spanish' costs billions; Trump can save money by pressing pen to paper. There's no telling how much money
the government could save if it were to stop asking Americans to "Press 2 for Spanish." What is clear, according to
those pushing the change, is that President Trump could do it with the stroke of a pen. Why he hasn't done so remains
shrouded. Since the dawn of the 21st century, the U.S. government has operated under mandatory translation rules for
its documents and services, a pricey option that President Bill Clinton imposed via executive order near the end of his
tenure in August 2000. In essence, the order meant that if a person with limited or no English language skills had a
problem with accessing federal services, then that was the government's problem.
ONE year's flow of illegal immigration will cost up to $150 billion. In 2017, Steven Camarota of the Center for
Immigration Studies gave a conservative estimate that the net fiscal cost of each illegal immigrant crossing is $74,722.
He used the fiscal cost estimates of immigrant based on education attainment from the National Academies of Sciences,
Engineering, and Medicine (NAS) in order to calculate the cost of the average illegal alien. But as Camarota notes, the
NAS uses "net present value," which applies less value to the costs down the road than the immediate costs. He
estimates that a straight approximation of "the actual net lifetime fiscal cost of illegal border-crossers, given their
education levels, is possibly $140,000 to $150,000 each in their lifetimes." These numbers include costs like criminal
justice, education, and general use of public services balanced against taxes paid, which for a great many illegal immigrants
is net zero or negative. At 990,000 aliens per year, that would be a lifetime cost of between $138.6 billion and
$148.5 billion our taxpayers are being forced to accept for a single year's flow.
on the border. Should the president be able to appropriate funds that Congress has repeatedly denied him?
It's a reasonable question, and the president is likely to be rebuked by Congress. What is plainly unreasonable is the
claim that there is no crisis at the border. The president has repeatedly been accused of "manufacturing" a crisis.
The situation at the border is fine, the president's loyal opposition would have everyone believe. This is nonsense.
In February, apprehensions of illegal border crossers reached an 11-year high of 76,000. "The majority of border crossers
are not single men but families — fathers from Honduras with adolescent boys they are pulling away from gang violence,
mothers with toddlers from Guatemala," The New York Times reported. That makes it more difficult to turn them away.
Many illegal migrants don't try to evade capture, but simply show up at the border and apply for asylum.
secretary says so many migrants are raped on the way to the U.S. that ICE gives EVERY girl 10 and older a pregnancy
test. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said Wednesday that young female migrants traveling north to
the United States are raped with such regularity that Immigration and Customs Enforcement gives every girl age 10 and over a
pregnancy test after arriving. 'Very unfortunately, because of the increase in violence, at ICE, when we have families
with children, we have to give every girl a pregnancy test over 10. This is not a safe journey,' Nielsen told the House
Homeland Security Committee. Doctors Without Borders reported in 2017 that '68.3 percent of the migrant and refugee
populations entering Mexico' from Central America 'reported being victims of violence during their transit toward the United States.'
Rep. Kinzinger: Border 'Deserving' of National Emergency Because of Drugs, Human Trafficking.
Wednesday [3/6/2019] on CNN's "New Day," Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) argued in favor of President Donald Trump's national
emergency declaration at the southern border. Kinzinger, who visited the border and saw the situation firsthand, said
there is a "really bad situation" at the border because of the drugs and human trafficking.
votes in favor of illegal immigrant voting. House Democrats voted Friday to defend localities that allow
illegal immigrants to vote in their elections, turning back a GOP attempt to discourage the practice. The vote marks a
stunning reversal from just six months ago, when the chamber — then under GOP control — voted to decry
illegal immigrant voting. "We are prepared to open up the political process and let all of the people come in,"
Rep. John Lewis, a Georgia Democrat and hero of the civil rights movement, told colleagues as he led opposition to the
gives illegal immigrants new right of appeal before deportation. Some illegal immigrants gained a new right of
appeal Thursday when a federal appeals court ruled that Congress cannot prevent them from challenging their deportations in
federal courts. The American Civil Liberties Union, which had argued the case, called it a "sweeping" decision that
will give asylum-seekers the chance to make their case in a regular U.S. court, rather than being limited to bureaucrats and
judges in the immigration court system. The ruling was issued by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and only applies
to cases within that region — including the border states of California and Arizona.
and the Democrats. The ongoing battle between Democrats and Republicans regarding the southern border is another clear example of
how Democrats protect their power at the expense of the black community. Republicans are in favor of strong border security, which in
addition to saving lives protects the economic stability of minorities. Democrats not only object to guarding against an increase in
the flow of low-wage illegal workers which would economically destroy minority communities in the U.S. by bringing down wages, but have even
suggested dismantling already existing boundaries, as was proposed by Beto O'Rourke, a rising star in the Democratic party. Democrats
know full well that open borders will greatly increase the supply of low-skilled workers directly, negatively impacting lower-income earners
in the U.S. If Democrats have their way and are successful in achieving open borders, it will have a disastrous impact in the black
community, as well as with other minorities.
judicial travesty on the 2020 Census citizenship question. [Scroll down] Here's the reality: motive is
irrelevant. What [Wilbur] Ross said he wanted is one thing; he probably should have been more direct. But the right
to know isn't irrelevant. And all that's being asked for in that Census questionnaire is information — information
that every resident is legally bound to answer. The argument presented from the Left is that illegal aliens won't answer the
Census if a citizenship question is on it, and they must be accommodated. Yet not answering is exactly what's breaking the law,
not the question. Illegals have already broken immigration law by entering the U.S. illegally, setting up shop, having
citizen children, and taking jobs. Many have stolen Americans' identification either to steal money or to pursue work.
The fact that illegals are likely to display the same lawless attitude on the matter of answering the Census just illustrates the
chain of lawlessness surrounding illegal immigration. In squelching the citizenship question, the judge is ruling that the
Census should actually accommodate them, not the rest of us, and not the right to know.
Yeah, this looks
like a border crisis. More than 76,000 migrants crossed the southern border illegally last month, the highest
number in 12 years. So much for all those media "fact checks" arguing that there's no emergency to justify President
Trump's wall. Immigration officials say the number is only going to increase, creating what Customs and Border Protection
Commissioner Kevin McAleenan warns is "a border security and a humanitarian crisis." Why are they coming in such vast
numbers? Because smugglers have put them wise to how to take advantage of recent court decisions to claim asylum and
remain here indefinitely.
Border Patrol Council President: There is a national emergency on our border — Here's proof.
As a 21-year front line veteran Border Patrol agent and president of the National Border Patrol Council, I'd like to put to
bed the false notion that there is no national emergency on the United States/Mexico border. I hope facts will do the
trick. Since November of 2013, I've been called upon to give expert Congressional testimony about various aspects of
border security on 18 separate occasions. I've testified before the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs
Committee, the Senate Judiciary Committee, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, the House Judiciary
Committee, and the House Committee on Natural Resources. This is important because during every hearing regarding
border security at which I testified in 2014, Democrats claimed the United States was in the state of a humanitarian crisis
at the border. While Republicans agreed with the notion of a crisis, they argued it was one of immigration loophole
More Migrant Families Arrested at Border in Five Months Than
Any Previous Full Year. From the start of the federal fiscal year in October through February, the Border
Patrol arrested 136,150 people traveling as families for crossing the border illegally, according to data released
Tuesday. The prior record for a 12-month period was 107,212, during the fiscal year that ended last September.
The rapid acceleration is the latest illustration of how many parents and children are seeking asylum in the U.S., primarily
to escape violence, poverty and hunger in Central America, according to migrants, advocates and law enforcement. And
those with children in tow are typically detained for shorter periods than adults traveling alone, because of a 20-day limit
on detaining minors.
Tough Deterrents, Many Asylum Seekers on the Border are Giving Up. Pushed beyond their limits by prolonged
waits in dangerous and squalid conditions in parts of Northern Mexico, thousands of caravan members who had been waiting to
seek asylum in the United States appear to have given up, Mexican officials said, dealing President Trump an apparent win
after a humbling week for his immigration agenda. About 6,000 asylum seekers who had traveled en masse, many of them in
defiance of Mr. Trump's demands that they turn around, arrived in Northern Mexico in late November as part of a caravan
that originated in Honduras. Since then, more than 1,000 have accepted an offer to be returned home by the Mexican
government, the officials said. Another 1,000 have decided to stay in Mexico, accepting work permits that were offered
to them last fall, at the height of international consternation over how to deal with the growing presence of migrant caravans.
Caught Crossing Illegally Per Day at the Rio Grande — How Is This NOT a National Emergency? While
the Democrats try and stop President Trump from closing the border, we have thousands of illegals crossing every week.
How is this not a national emergency? Is the sovereignty of our nation not of interest to the Democrats? It
certainly would appear that they are putting legal Americans last and have been for years. Without borders, we are not
a nation. Sovereignty matters!
borders or process: Democrats, Congress need to decide what really matters. I went down to the border a
few weeks ago. I'd listened to the career politicians in Washington argue about immigration and border security and the
humanitarian crisis for weeks and weeks and it was all a bunch of hot air. I needed to get out of Washington and listen
to the people who are actually on the ground, in the line of fire, doing the work. I met with Border Patrol agents and
they told me they need more agents, they need more technology and yes, they need physical barriers. The Laredo Sector
includes 171 miles of border between Texas and Mexico and Customs and Border Protection has approximately 1100 agents.
wheel out an 'Illegal Immigration Stimulus Act' for 2019. After throwing away their chance to help DREAMers
during February's extended budget debacle, refusing to exchange President Trump's wall funding for some kind of legislative
amnesty for the favored aliens here illegally whom they claim to champion, House Democrats are coming out with a big new
legislative bill, H.R. 6, the Dream and Promise Bill of 2019.
to Terminate Trump's National Emergency. The House of Representatives voted today to terminate President Donald
Trump's declaration of a national emergency, in a rare but welcome rebuke of executive overreach. H.J. Res 46, which
reads simply "the national emergency declared by the finding of the President on February 15, 2019... is hereby terminated"
passed on an 245-to-182 vote. The resolution commanded the support of all House Democrats, as well as 13 Republicans,
including Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.), the resolution's one GOP co-sponsor, and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.).
official: Border security bill does not contain 'amnesty' poison pills. Immigration hawks slammed the
border security compromise President Trump signed into law Friday for containing last-minute provisions that they argued give
"amnesty" to many — but a Department of Homeland Security official insisted to Fox News that's a misunderstanding
of the bill. The amnesty claim was made by lawmakers and conservative commentators. "This 'deal' provides de facto
amnesty for anyone claiming to be even in the household of a potential sponsor of an unaccompanied alien minor," Rep. Chip
Roy, R-Texas, wrote on Twitter Thursday [2/14/2019].
facts about detention of families. ICE operates the facility in concert with Berks County. According to
our guide, most of the residents only stay in the center for about two weeks as they await the next step in their
cases. While touring the facility, we observed residents lounging in spacious accommodations that included pool tables,
unlimited snacks and two libraries. There was little, if any, security presence. There were no barbed wire fences
keeping residents from wandering too far after a basketball game outside. We asked our guide if anyone had ever left
the facility, given the lax security. He responded, "Why would they want to?" before adding that some previous
residents had actually tried to return to the facility after their release, wanting to stay longer.

Carlson schooled Mike Donovan — the convicted felon who's bankrolling the lawsuit filed against President Trump for
violating the Constitutional "rights" of 12 members of the migrant caravan en route to the US to demand entry. In his
lawsuit, Donovan claims that Trump's promise to deport the illegal immigrants violates the Fifth Amendment right to due process.
Earth to Mike Donovan: they have no legal standing because they're not US citizens, nor are they on US soil.

migrants get their very own Avenatti? With U.S. troops manning the U.S. border, caravan migrants rolling up
from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, hoping to use legal loopholes to gain entry to the U.S., seem to have switched
tactics. They're now using lawfare against the Trump administration instead of muscle.
'Right' to Birthright Citizenship. So-called birthright citizenship comes to us from the 14th Amendment, and the
problem is contained in its very first sentence: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States." Those who believe the 14th does not grant citizenship to the
children of illegals, tourists, foreign embassy staff, and other foreign nationals, hang their hat on the "and subject to the
jurisdiction thereof" clause, which they back up with the speeches and debates given by the drafters of that clause. The
original intent and purpose of the 14th was to guarantee citizenship for the recently emancipated slaves, not the children of
lawbreaking foreigners 150 years in the future
official: three-quarters of migrants in the caravan are adult men. Nearly three-quarters of those in the
caravan of Central American migrants traveling through Mexico to the United States are adult men, a senior Border Patrol
official told the Washington Examiner. Families and unaccompanied children make up "about 20 to
30 percent" of the caravan, according to Roy Villareal, deputy chief patrol agent of the Border Patrol's San Diego
Sector. "The rest of that is single, adult males," Villareal said during a recent tour of the region.
Single-parent families and children who illegally enter the country will not be prosecuted, unlike adults.
Carlson: Establishment Siding With Foreigners Over Its Own People, That Tells You Everything. Tucker
Carlson responded to outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan and other opponents of ending birthright citizenship in a monologue on
the Tuesday broadcast of his FOX News show. Carlson argued the Fourteenth Amendment is about guaranteeing citizenship
to freed slaves, quoting the author of the author of the Amendment, Sen. Jacob Howard. "The Amendment was designed
to ensure that newly freed slaves would be treated as the American citizens they were," Carlson said. "The point was to
enfranchise African-Americans; the point was not to enable the rest of the world to scam our system, to abuse our generosity."
"Trump supposedly will get us closer to the purpose of the Fourteenth Amendment," Carlson added. [Video clip]

the U.S. military was created solely for urban renewal and social work projects in Kabul, Baghdad, Raqqa, and Mogadishu, but
not for the purpose of protecting our border. In fact, that is almost the only role of our military that our Founders
envisioned. It is the one military deployment that the president can order unilaterally without a congressional
declaration of war, because it is purely defensive. The president is right to deploy soldiers, because the time has
come to treat our own border with as much respect and care as we would other countries' borders.
A half dozen members of the Honduras caravan have filed suit against President Trump and various other federal officials in a
putative class action. You can read the complaint, which is venued in the District of Columbia, here. It is
largely a Democratic Party screed against the President, with paragraphs like this: [...] You may well be surprised that
Hondurans currently located in Mexico have rights under the U.S. Constitution. The complaint appears to be premature at
best. But the reality is that asylum represents a massive loophole in our immigration laws. Asylum is supposed to
be available to people who face persecution in their home countries on grounds of religion, race, etc. It was never
intended to apply wholesale to entire populations on the ground that their country is poorly governed.
Refuses to Air Latest President Trump Campaign Ad with Caravan Pics — It's Too Effective!. The Trump
campaign released a new campaign ad on Friday afternoon [11/2/2018]. The campaign is running nationally for a $1.55 Million
ad buy. But Trump Campaign manager Brad Parscale says CNN refuses to run the president's ad. And they wonder why
conservatives think they're fake news? [Video clip]
is right — ending birthright citizenship is constitutional. President Trump's announcement Tuesday [10/30/2018]
that he is preparing an executive order to end birthright citizenship has the left and even some conservatives in an uproar. But
the president is correct when he says that the 14th Amendment to the Constitution does not require universal birthright citizenship.
An executive order by President Trump ending birthright citizenship would face a certain court challenge that would wind up in the
Supreme Court. But based on my research of this issue over several years, I believe the president's view is consistent with the
view of the framers of the amendment. Those who claim the 14th Amendment mandates that anyone born in the U.S. is automatically
an American citizen are misinterpreting the amendment in a manner inconsistent with the intent of the amendment's framers.
Campaign Exposed in Undercover Video for Assisting Honduran Migrants: 'Nobody Needs to Know'. A Project Veritas
video released Thursday night [11/1/2018] shows Beto O'Rourke campaign staffers discussing how they can illegally use campaign resources
to purchase supplies and assist in the transportation of Honduran migrants. [Video clip] Dominic Chacon, a Field
Manager for the O'Rourke campaign in El Paso, Texas, expressed his concern in getting supplies to the caravan migrants.
Caravan migrants from 20 countries, include 270 convicted criminals. The Department of Homeland Security claimed
Thursday [11/1/2018] people from at least 20 countries make up the two caravan groups, not just citizens of Guatemala and
Honduras. In a release called "Myth vs. Fact: Caravan," the department also states more than 270 people
in the caravans are either known gang members or have criminal backgrounds. DHS did not cite its sources for the information
and a department spokesperson said that information is law enforcement sensitive.
University Students Try And Guess Who Said What About Immigration. Students at American University in
Washington, D.C., tried to guess who said what about immigration to The Daily Caller News Foundation. Most of the
students guessed the quotes read to them came from President Donald Trump. The quotes actually came from former
Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, as well as former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Many
students were surprised to find today's Democrats speaking with such enthusiasm when it came to cracking down on illegal
immigration only two decades ago.
Caravan 2018: Invasion By Emigration.
[Scroll down] Let us return to what three Democrats have said as to illegal immigration: Sen. Harry Reid in 1993 —
"no sane country would do that" — reward illegal immigration; President Clinton in 1995 — "We are a nation of
immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws." And President Obama numerous times [said] that he lacked authority to act on immigration
without Congressional approval.
The Editor says...
The phrase we are a nation of immigrants is a deceptive canard. Most of the people in this country were born here.
While it is true that at some point in history, everybody's ancestors immigrated to North America, the same is true of every other
country in the world.
don't understand this surprising secret of Trump's success. There is no question that President Trump is the
most disruptive force in politics today. The president has torn up every political playbook. His political
survival after two years in office is a modern-day miracle, and his polling numbers are even running ahead of where
Presidents Obama and Clinton were at this point. President Trump's most powerful weapon so far has not been the
insult — which he certainly has been willing to use — but the idea. Take his idea for ending
birthright citizenship. Can't say I support it. I don't. But it's not an insult, a racial epithet, or an
off-color joke. It's an idea that focuses on how an open-borders policy reverberates. And it's even an idea that
former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid of Nevada once passionately supported.
How Progressives Killed
Birthright Citizenship. Progressives may very well have set the table for the end of birthright citizenship by executive order
or legislation during the 1990s. This was not their intention, of course, but in their unprincipled pursuit of political power, they
unwittingly might have choked off all attempts to cover birthright citizenship in a constitutional mantle.
"Nobody needs to know" Beto Campaign
Appears to Illegally Spend Funds on Supplies for Caravan Aliens, Campaign Manager Says "Don't Worry". Project
Veritas Action Fund has released undercover video from current Congressman and US Senate candidate Beto O'Rourke's campaign.
The video exposes how his campaign staff appear to be illegally using campaign resources to buy supplies and help transport
Honduran aliens. This is the eighth undercover video report Project Veritas has released in a series revealing secrets
and lies from political campaigns in 2018.
caravan coordinator says demand for Mexico to provide buses has 'failed'. The leading migrant caravan trying to
make its way to the United States border is admitting defeat after asking the Mexican government to provide dozens of buses
to speed up the group's journey northward. The setback comes days after caravan leaders asked for "safe and dignified"
transport to Mexico City, a checkpoint along the way for a group that has been dwindling in size as members either apply for
protected status in Mexico or drop out over fatigue exacerbated by the sweltering weather conditions they have been facing.
to curtail asylum at border, build tent cities to hold migrants. President Trump announced a major change in
U.S. asylum policy Thursday [11/1/2018], saying the government will no longer allow migrants who jump the border to turn
around and claim asylum in an attempt to gain a foothold here. The president said migrants who show up at the official
land ports of entry will still be allowed to make claims, but blocking claims by those who sneak into the U.S. could change the
patterns and cut down on the caravans now headed for the border.
traveling to US sue Trump, government; claim violation of constitutional rights. A dozen migrants traveling by
foot from Honduras to the U.S. to seek asylum filed a class-action lawsuit Thursday against President Trump, the Department
of Homeland Security and others, claiming a violation of their due process under the Fifth Amendment. The Fifth
Amendment states that, "no person... shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived
of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law." A recent PBS report cited former Supreme Court Justice
Antonin Scalia, who ruled in 1993 case that "it is well established that the Fifth Amendment entitles aliens to due process
of law in a deportation proceeding."
Democrats Are Trying to Steal the Election. Let me share the hate Democrats are sending out daily in texts to
voters. I guarantee normal Americans will be revolted. First of all, these Democrat "get out the vote" texts I am
bombarded with all day, every day, arrived without ever asking for my permission. That's a violation of the law.
Secondly, most of them arrive in Spanish, which tells me that either Democrats assume the typical Democrat voter no longer
speaks English... or they have me on a list aimed directly at foreign-born, non English speakers. It is telling what
they are saying to these foreign-born Democrat voters. These texts from liberal groups claim that we must vote for
Democrats because Trump and Nevada U.S. Senator Dean Heller "will deport and jail your family. Trump and Heller hate
Birthright Can Be Defeated and Kavanaugh Will Be Instrumental. Conservatives tend to favor an original
construction interpretation of the Constitution. To do this, one must look at the spirit, i.e., reason, time and
current events that led up to a new amendment. The Fourteenth Amendment has nothing to do with illegal immigrants.
A significant takeaway from Justice Kavanaugh hearings was the interpretation of the Constitution is essential. He talked
in great length about the spirit of an amendment when drafted and implemented. Justice Kavanaugh is an originalist and
looks deep into the purpose of modification. In July of 1868, the Fourteenth Amendment was ratified and placed into
law. The spirit of the new amendment was not about illegal aliens. It had nothing to do with the issue.
At that time, the last addition to the Constitution abolished slavery, which took place in the Thirteenth Amendment.
Adversaries to the freedom of released slaves were starting to create laws, i.e., Jim Crow, in an attempt to end around the
Thirteenth Amendment. They tried to undermine federal law, causing dissension between states and the Federal Government,
bringing forth a need for the Fourteenth Amendment.
hardens stance on Mexico border, says 15,000 troops could be sent. U.S. President Donald Trump said on
Wednesday [10/31/2018] the United States could send as many as 15,000 troops to the border with Mexico, as he hardens his
stance against a caravan of migrants fleeing violence and poverty in Central America.
are Dems getting so worked up about birthright citizenship? The Dems and the media are having another
Trump-induced stroke over the issue of "birthright citizenship." The Dems; the media; and Paul Ryan, the speaker of the
House, would have you believe that the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees U.S. citizenship to anyone born in
this country. The 14th Amendment was passed by a Republican Congress after the Civil War to guarantee citizenship and
equal rights to the freed slaves. [...] The 14th Amendment does not guarantee citizenship to everyone born in the USA.
The language states that the persons born or naturalized, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens.
If you are a naturalized citizen, you take an oath to defend the U.S. Constitution and renounce allegiance to foreign powers
and thus subject yourself to the jurisdiction of the USA.
and Horowitz: Yes, Trump can end birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants with an executive
order. [Daniel] Horowitz told [Mark] Levin that President Trump has the authority to issue an executive order
clarifying how the executive branch will interpret the 14th Amendment concerning the citizenship status of children born in
the United States to illegal aliens. He said that those who say otherwise, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisc.,
are "constitutionally illiterate." "Let's put this in plain English here," Horowitz said. "Basically they're
saying, Mark, I could break into your home, kick down the door, drop a kid there, and he has the right to live there for the
remainder of his life and there's not a darn thing you can do about it." "The reality is that even if we agree to the
notion of birthright citizenship ... there is no way you could extrapolate that to people who came here without consent.
The key words are 'consent' and 'sovereignty.' Nothing ever supersedes that. Nobody could unilaterally assert
jurisdiction and make it that there's nothing we can do to stop this," he continued.
Caravan Is Not Coming Because It's Already Here. The mostly military age males on the way to the U.S. southern
border are not wearing pink [protest] caps, but they might as well be. Instead they're carrying little flags honoring
the very countries they claim they must escape, and rather than screeching like the Women's March protesters did, they break
into their national anthem whenever the media is about. The Caravan Mission, like the Big Women's March the first day
after President Donald Trump's Inauguration, was painstakingly organized long before the pink cap protesters ever hit the
streets. Not even ganged-up social media or flash mobs can put millions of protesters on the street overnight.
Levin: Paul Ryan Is 'Utterly Wrong' on Birthright Citizenship. Tuesday [10/30/2018] on his nationally
syndicated radio, conservative talker Mark Levin criticized House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) for dismissing President Donald
Trump's claim in an interview with Axios that he could end the immigration policy of birthright citizenship through an
executive order. Ryan contended that a president could not end birthright citizenship "with an executive order" in an
interview with Lexington, KY radio station WVLK.
Migration Record: Almost One Migrant for Every Two Graduates in 2016. President Barack Obama spiked legal
and illegal immigration to a record level of 1.75 million in 2017 by accepting one migrant for every two young Americans who
entered the workforce in 2017." The huge inflow matched the record set in 1999 when Bill Clinton was president.
Obama's wave of legal immigrants, illegal migrants, and visa workers rose from 1.1 million in 2009 to 1.75 million
in 2017. In the same year, roughly four million Americans turned 18 and joined the workforce. The four million
Americans included the children of immigrants as well as the children of illegal migrants.
Citizenship: It's About The Law, Not Mob Rule. President Trump's comment that he might end birthright
citizenship for the children of illegal aliens certainly deserves both political and legal debate over its merits. What
it doesn't deserve is another shrill, nonstop "Trump is Hitler" attack by far-left Democrats and the media.
Faithful Patriot: Video Shows Hundreds of Military Vehicles Being Shipped to Southern Border. President
Trump said on Wednesday to a pool of White House reporters that he may send upwards of 10,000-15,000 troops to the southern
border to deal with the horde of mainly military-aged male migrants marching through Mexico to the United States. "As
far as the caravan is concerned, our military is out... we'll go up to anywhere between 10 and 15,000 military personnel, on
top of Border Patrol, ICE and everybody else at the border," Trump said, according to Reuters. Earlier this week, the
military was to deploy 5,000 troops to the southern border in anticipation of the migrant caravan in a mission dubbed
'Operation Faithful Patriot.'
the Bus. Fox News reporter Bill La Jeunesse seemed to me to be performing public relations work on behalf of
the migrant caravan in his regular live hits from Mexico. Either that or he had succumbed to a variant of Stockholm
Syndrome. Has Griff Jenkins relieved him? [...] Yesterday [10/30/2018] Jenkins reported that buses had mysteriously
appeared to move the caravan along (video below). Who is defraying the expenses? Jenkins says it is the state of
Oaxaca "getting volunteer buses to put people... on them and take them to their next location." Now I can see why the state
of Oaxaca might want to help the multitude move on, but I'd want to hear more before buying the concept of "volunteer buses."
Jenkins counts 11 buses and notes that more would be needed to move the entire multitude. Except for the factor of the
buses, this is a confusing report.
a fourth caravan has left El Salvador. Some 2,000 migrants traveling in two groups departed El Salvador's
capital Wednesday morning [10/31/2018] on their way to the US by way of Mexico, making it the fourth caravan to embark on the
1,000-journey in the last two weeks. This latest group hit the road even as President Donald Trump promised to send
thousands of troops — possibly as many as up to 7,000 by some estimates to secure the southern border and increased
pressure on Mexico to halt the flow of people. Police in San Salvador estimated the two groups leaving the capital numbered
around 1,000 each. One cohort left around dawn, followed by a second later in the morning.
The Editor says...
Redundancy alert: "As many as" and "up to" carry the same meaning, so it isn't necessary to use both phrases.
Five points off. See me after class.
Birthright Citizenship. American history familiar to many high school students demonstrates how wrong
birthright citizenship is. Indians living on reservations were not American citizens for most of our history, despite
being born in our country. Native Americans were considered members only of their sovereign Indian tribes, until
Congress extended blanket citizenship in 1924. Similarly, children born to foreign ambassadors while in the United States are
not American citizens, but are citizens of their country of origin. In their crusade against President Trump,
globalists trot out alleged experts claiming that Trump's proposal is impossible, unconstitutional, or morally wrong.
But the hysterical overreaction by his critics proves how right Trump is.
Against Birthright Citizenship. A heated national conversation about birthright citizenship and the 14th
Amendment is currently underway, and we think many politicians, pundits, and scholars on both the right and left are getting
it wrong. Claremont Institute scholars have been thinking and writing about this problem for many years.
Paul Ryan was dead wrong on birthright citizenship. Here's how. Tuesday [10/30/2018] on the radio,
LevinTV host Mark Levin ripped Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., for his response to President Trump's statement that
he plans to issue an executive order to end birthright citizenship. Ryan claimed the 14th Amendment creates the
birthright citizenship and that therefore such an executive order would be unconstitutional. "There's been no law
passed that conveys birthright citizenship onto illegal aliens. There's been no Supreme Court decision that
definitively confers birthright citizenship onto illegal alien children. Nobody's a hundred percent certain how this
came to be. But everybody seems to be a hundred percent certain that the president can't fix it. ... Well, does the
Constitution confer birthright citizenship on the children of illegal aliens? Of course it doesn't!"
The caravan of the saints. This is
what you get when you permit the impoverishment of an entire continent, and then exploit the undocumented labour of those
able to escape[.]
Reid In 1993: 'No Sane Country' Would Give Citizenship To People Born From Illegal Aliens. President Donald
Trump said on Monday [10/29/2018] that he would pursue an executive order to outlaw birthright citizenship just days before
the November midterm elections, which, as expected, caused a meltdown from the political Left. "It was always told to
me that you needed a constitutional amendment," Trump said in an interview. "Guess what? You don't. You can
definitely do it with an act of Congress. But now they're saying I can do it just with an executive order... We're the
only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of the United
States... with all of those benefits. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And it has to end."
Democratic politicians and left-leaning organizations immediately jumped on Trump's comments, claiming that he was trying
to "fan the flames of anti-immigrant" hate and that he was trying to "incite his base."
Migrants in Caravan Opened Fire on Mexican Cops, Say Authorities. Mexican authorities arrested two Hondurans
who allegedly shot at federal police officers escorting the migrant caravan across the southern state of Chiapas. The
attack follows shortly after government warnings about Molotov cocktail attacks around a second caravan near the border with
Guatemala. The attack took place near Ignacio Zaragoza, Chiapas, when members of Mexico's Federal Police were escorting
the migrant caravan as part of "Operativo Caminante" or "Operation Walker" across the southern border state.
Central American Migrants Set Fire to Mexican Immigration Facility. A group of Central American migrants facing
deportation set fire to a Mexican immigration facility in an apparent attempt to escape. The alleged arson comes at a
time when Mexican authorities reported the use of firearms and Molotov cocktails within the migrant caravans as they make
their way through Mexico to the United States. The fire was reportedly started at a facility dual-purposed as a
checkpoint and makeshift detention center for Mexico's National Migration Institute (INM) in Pijijiapan, Chiapas, when a
group of migrants housed there set fire to their mattresses, Televisa Noticias reported. According to local public
safety director Jaime Marroquin, authorities were housing 21 men, five women, and three children which were in the
process of being deported. The migrants reportedly set fires to give cover to their escape.
Smuggler Unloads 16 Migrants on South Texas Ranch, Says Border Patrol. Laredo Sector Border Patrol agents
witnesses a human smuggler crash a pickup truck loaded with 16 migrants through a rancher's gate and into a fence.
Fortunately, no one was injured in the crash. Laredo Sector agents patrolling near Hebbronville, Texas, observed a pickup
truck loaded with a group of migrants traveling on FM 649. As the agents began to follow, the driver made a sharp turn
and crashed through a ranch gate, according to Laredo Sector Border Patrol officials. The agents pursued the vehicle into
the ranch and found it after the driver crashed into a fence. The agents witnessed a large number of people bailing out
following the crash, officials stated.
Unvetted Illegal Caravans Threaten Public Health. From Newsweek, which is supposed to, you know, report actual
news of the week: "'We don't know what people have': Laura Ingraham calls migrant caravan a health issue." And from The
Daily Beast: "Fox & Friends Host Brian Kilmeade Fears 'Diseases' Brought By Migrant Caravan." This is not "news."
It's propaganda recycled and regurgitated by lazy political operatives masquerading as journalists. At least the
Newsweek writer gave credit to his zealous hitmen sources: "Ingraham's comments," he dutifully wrote, "were first
highlighted by Media Matters for America." MMfA is a militant left-wing oppo research outfit funded by progressive
billionaire George Soros. Somehow, not-really-Newsweek forgot to mention this fact.
birthright citizenship would enforce the Constitution. Temporary visitors, such as tourists, students and guest
workers, can unilaterally confer citizenship on their children merely by giving birth while here, is the claim. That
view has given rise to the cottage industry known as "birth tourism." Worse, under this view, citizenship is automatic even
if the parents overstay their visas and become illegally present in the United States. Worse still, such citizenship is
automatic for children born of parents who were never lawfully present in the United States in the first place. In a
nation such as the United States, which is rooted in the idea that governments are formed based on the consent of the governed,
the notion that foreign nationals can unilaterally confer citizenship on their children as the result of illegal entry to the
United States (and therefore entirely without our consent) is a bit bizarre. It rewards lawlessness, undermining the
rule of law. It deprives Congress of its constitutional authority to determine naturalization power.
Citizenship and Its Allies. In 1989, an illegal alien being escorted back to the border gave birth in an
Immigration and Naturalization Service van. That child was an American, thanks to our granting citizenship to children
born on U.S. soil — a generosity that also extends to children born on any one of 15 islands between the
Philippines and Hawaii. Our promiscuity with citizenship, however "generous" it may seem, effaces the salience of an
institution central to the concept of nationhood. That is doubtless what President Trump had in mind when he told
reporters from Axios that he intends to sign an executive order that would put a stop to America's birthright citizenship policy.
Democrats are staying silent about the migrant caravan. Four months ago, critics on the left wouldn't shut up
about the border and some, like Mayor Bill de Blasio, made grandstanding trips to Texas detention facilities and held press
conferences to denounce Trump in the harshest possible language. Now, despite the president's tough talk and use of the
military, leftist pols hardly make a peep, fearful that defending the caravan could be political suicide.
Reportedly Providing Charter Buses To Drive Migrant Caravan Closer To US Border. The migrant caravan
originating from Central America reportedly has a new method of reaching the U.S. border with Mexico: professional charter
buses. Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins reported Tuesday [10/30/2018] from Mexico that the thousands-strong migrant
caravan is now being chartered to the U.S. border by tour bus. Jenkins showed multiple professional buses lined up and
boarding migrants to take them to their next destination on the path to the American border.
the 14th Amendment, the Caravan, and the Constitution. In today's installment of exploding heads, President
Trump has proposed to overturn, via executive order, the constitutionally dubious "birthright citizenship" interpretation of
the 14th Amendment. There's no question he has the authority to issue such an order in his capacity as president and
commander-in-chief — each of the three branches is equally responsible for fidelity to the Constitution, and each
is free to interpret it as it sees fit. That the 14th amendment — the centerpiece of the Reconstruction
Amendments passed and ratified under the Johnson and Grant administrations, but proposed and voted in by the Radical
Republicans in Congress — applies specifically and only to the newly freed slaves is clear not only from its
historical context, but to its very language: [...]
As the Caravan
Approaches: There Probably Will Be Blood. There seems no way that the caravan of 4,000 [to] 14,000
migrants approaching our southern border is going to end without blood being shed. [...] Let it be clear: If we let
them in — and, yes, they are people with feelings and sensitivities and loves and hopes and dreams —
then there will be another Caravan after it, and next time it will be a Caravan of 10-15,000 sensitive lovers and hopers and
dreamers. And three months later it will be another Caravan. And then another. What $38 million cash
raised and wasted in one calendar quarter could not buy for Beto O'Rourke and his Kennedyesque DUI driving record and his
Kennedyesque attempt to flee from the scene, the hordes will solve: Texas really will turn bold shades of "overnight
blue." Arizona will turn blue. Alabama and Mississippi will turn blue. North Dakota and Montana and Idaho
will turn blue. We will lose this country — exactly as the Democrat playbook seeks.
ambassador to U.S. claims there are very violent migrants in caravan. Mexico's U.S. Ambassador —
Geronimo Gutierrez — is blasting Democrats for saying everyone in the migrant caravan are all peaceful refugees
seeking asylum. On Tuesday [10/30/2018], Gutierrez explained there have been multiple instances where migrants have
been "very violent," while rebelling against border authorities. This comes after Mexican officials warned some
migrants in Guatemala are building makeshift bombs to use against police officers guarding the border between Mexico and
Trump: Birthright Citizenship 'Will Be Ended One Way or the Other'. President Donald Trump vowed
Wednesday [10/31/2018] to continue fighting to end "so-called birthright citizenship." "So-called Birthright
Citizenship, which costs our Country billions of dollars and is very unfair to our citizens, will be ended one way or the
other," he wrote on Twitter. The president's proposal to issue an executive order to end birthright citizenship was
revealed by Axios reporter Jonathan Swan on Tuesday [10/30/2018] during an interview with Trump.
citizenship is a scam. There is no other word for it. Under current interpretations of American law
anyone born on our soil automatically becomes a U.S. citizen. Context is irrelevant. It doesn't matter if your
parents were terrorists or illegal aliens or foreign saboteurs if their plane was forced down to refuel and you
emerged. It doesn't matter. If you were born on our property, you are a citizen. In a recent interview with
Axios, President Trump suggested this is not a great deal for America. He pledged to change it with an executive
order. As of right now, it seems likely that order would abolish so-called "birth" tourism. That's where people
travel to the United States solely for the purpose of having kids and winning citizenship along with the many benefits that
follow from that. We'll know more about it soon and of course, we'll tell you when we do know. But nobody else in
Washington is waiting for details. They hate it already.

that he is preparing an executive order to end birthright citizenship has the left and even some conservatives in an

making caravan walk, not ride, to the US border. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Wednesday
[10/31/2018] that Mexico has taken significant steps to slow down the caravan of Central American migrants as it makes its
way toward the southern U.S. border. In a Fox News interview, Sanders said specifically that Mexico has helped make
sure caravan members stay marching on their feet, and aren't taking buses or other transportation.
citizenship needs fixing. What President Trump plans to change about birthright citizenship is a mystery.
But his comment to a reporter on the subject sent the commentariat into a tizzy. Some raised valid constitutional and
legal objections. As House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., noted, "you cannot end birthright citizenship with an executive
order," and the Constitution does, broadly, prescribe citizenship for babies born in the U.S. But Democrats and their
media allies risk overreaching if they think the public agrees with their absolutist view on the matter. The question
is, ought we to confer citizenship to every baby born here. We suspect that most people agree, as we do, that
children born here to illegal immigrants and legal passers-through should not get citizenship automatically, but children
born to permanent residents should.
caravan' has no right to be here. Amid the conspiracy theories and the bloody madness revolving about the
matter, we've never quite settled on the proper nomenclature: What do we call thousands of Central Americans tramping
towards our southern border intent on entering our country and living here? "Migrant caravan" has a pleasant ring to
it, as though this were a modern-day Canterbury Tales. But theirs is not a pilgrimage from which the travelers will one
day return home. This is a body of people the size of a town population looking to relocate to the United States
whether the citizens of this country like it or not.
A "caravan" — the euphemism for a current foot-army of more than 10,000 Central Americans — of would-be
border crossers has now passed into Mexico. The marchers promise they will continue 1,000 miles and more northward to
the U.S. border, despite warnings from President Trump that as unauthorized immigrants they will be turned away. No one
has yet explained how, or by whom or what, such a mass of humanity has been supplied, cared for, and organized. Once at
the border, the immigrants further predict that they will successfully, but illegally, enter the United States, then claim
refugee status, and finally rely on sympathetic public opinion — and progressive political activism —
to avoid deportation. If past experience is any guide, they are quite right in thinking they can melt into the
population, ignore future legal summonses, and count on the de facto amnesty that currently protects
22 million illegal aliens, the vast majority from Mexico and Central America.
migrant caravan storms into Mexico. The second migrant caravan, believed to be armed with bombs and guns,
crossed into Mexico on Monday despite a huge police presence. Hundreds of migrants following in the footsteps of the
first caravan heading to the U.S. border crossed a river from Guatemala. A low-flying police helicopter hovered
overhead as the migrants waded in large groups through the Suchiate River's murky waters, apparently trying to use the
downdraft from its rotors to discourage them.
When Refugees Were Conquerors.
Ah, the refugee caravan. Would it be a midterm election without a bunch of oppressed brown-skinned asylum seekers
storming the border? In a way, these refugees are like cicadas, appearing with clockwork predictability anytime the
powers-that-be need a good "humanitarian crisis" to tug on voters' heartstrings. So now we have the Hondurans, marching
toward the border, holding the flag of their native country, demanding political asylum because (according to them) if they
were to stay in their native country, they'd be slaughtered by their beloved countrymen. But hey, let's proudly wave
the flag of that native country made up of [bad people] who want us dead. Remember when all those Jewish refugees from
Germany in the 1930s arrived in the U.S. waving Nazi flags? No? Neither do I. I mean, I hate to
come off as suspicious or untrusting, but it seems a little odd to be haughtily displaying the flag of a country that
you are supposedly fleeing because everyone there wants to murder you.
Attacks: Who's Paying? [Scroll down] Similarly, the Honduran caravan seems just too convenient and
perfectly timed to be a coincidence, doesn't it? All of a sudden, 10,000-plus politically oppressed people just
absolutely have to make their way to the U.S. border, right now, just as the midterm elections are upon us. The
Democrats once again have brought forth one of their favored issues: Republican hardheartedness, coldly turning away
pregnant women and helpless, undernourished children from a better life in America. Well, that just isn't who America
is, is it? [...] The question that seems obvious is, how did this caravan come to be? Why now? How do they eat,
and who provides for their basic sanitary, transportation, and shelter needs along the path of their valiant, arduous
journey? It's a long trek. It ain't free. Who's paying? Who's the organizer?
Keepers: We Urge President Trump to Deploy Active Duty Troops, En Masse, on Mexico Border. We the
military and law enforcement of Oath Keepers call on President Trump to deploy infantry and other combat arms troops to the
border with Mexico in large enough numbers to secure the full length of the border against all illegal foreign
invaders. The just-announced joint CBP/DOD operation, which will supply military mobility, engineering, medical, and
planning support for the Customs and Border Protection (CBP), is a step in the right direction, and may be sufficient to
handle the specific mass caravans of illegals, including MS-13 gang members and criminals from the Middle East, that are
currently in the news, but it falls far short of what is actually needed to secure the border against the ongoing daily
invasion by illegal aliens.
Caravan Demands Mexico Provide Them Transportation. The massive chain of migrants slowly making its way towards
the U.S. southern border, which is still some 1,000 miles north, is now demanding that the Mexican government provide
transportation for its estimated 4,000 participants — demands issued amid reports of outbreaks of violence as more
groups have forced their way through Mexico's southern border. "Worn down from long miles of walking and frustrated by
the caravan's slow progress, some migrants have been dropping out and returning home or applying for protected status in
Mexico," AP reports.
Trump End Birthright Citizenship With An Executive Order? On Monday [10/29/2018], President Trump announced to
Axios on HBO that he would pursue an executive order to outlaw birthright citizenship just before the election. "It was
always told to me that you needed a constitutional amendment," Trump stated. "Guess what? You don't." He then
added, "You can definitely do it with an act of Congress. But now they're saying I can do it just with an executive
order... We're the only country in the world where a person comes in and has a baby, and the baby is essentially a citizen of
the United States... with all of those benefits. It's ridiculous. It's ridiculous. And it has to
end." Trump isn't wrong that the United States is one of only two developed countries to maintain birthright
citizenship (the other is Canada). But it's dicey whether an executive order could simply change birthright
citizenship, or whether an act of Congress could.
Citizenship And How All Amendments Aren't Created Equal. This morning [10/30/2018] the big buzz is President
Trump's statement to the effect that he intends to end birthright citizenship. Trump told "Axios on HBO" that he has
run the idea of ending birthright citizenship by his counsel and plans to proceed with the highly controversial move, which
certainly will face legal challenges. [...] I suspect that any executive order that tries to do this will eventually be
invalidated by the Supreme Court based on Article 1, Section 8, of the Constitution. It would be nice if the
Supreme Court didn't take the easy way out, though, because I welcome a full-blown challenge to the idea of birthright
citizenship simply to put the idea to rest.
Trump reveals plan to use executive order to end birthright citizenship for children of illegals. Expect an
explosion of media outrage and high powered lawsuits, especially in jurisdictions with Trump-hating federal judges.
President Trump has launched an October surprise. Last night [10/29/2018] in an interview granted to Jonathan Swan of
Axios, President Trump announced his plans to use an executive order to end birthright citizenship for children born on
American territory to illegal immigrants and foreign citizens, presumably at least those "not subject to the jurisdiction of
the United States" as required by the 14th Amendment.
We Will Hold Asylum Seekers in Tent Cities Until Their Trial. During an interview broadcast on Monday's edition
of the Fox News Channel's "Ingraham Angle," President Trump stated that asylum applicants will be held in tent cities until
their hearing takes place, and people with rejected asylum applications will "get out." Trump stated, "If they apply
for asylum, we're going to hold them until such time as their trial takes place."
The Left Goes Full Open
Borders. It wasn't long ago that both sides of the aisle believed America's border laws should be
enforced. As President Donald Trump pointed out on Twitter, even former President Barack Obama, at least rhetorically,
said that illegal immigrants couldn't be let into the country en masse and without restrictions (Obama said that when he was
a senator). "We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked and
circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently, and lawfully to become immigrants into this country,"
Obama said. This dynamic has shifted dramatically, as the American left now increasingly sees any level of border
enforcement as beyond the pale. The migrant caravans originating in Honduras and heading north to the U.S. border are
testing just how far the left will go in embracing this new narrative.
Caravan: A Foreign-Financed, Leftist-Led Violation Of U.S. Sovereignty. The so-called migrant caravan
that's slowly making its way to the U.S. from Central America is many things to many people. But one thing seems pretty
certain: it's not about seeking "asylum," or "refugee status." It's about getting to the United States at all costs.
caravan appears to be moving northward faster, as crowds take advantage of free rides. Migrants in the leading
caravan trying to make its way to the United States appear to be approaching the border at a faster pace now, as the group
takes advantage of rides being offered by trucks and other vehicles. A Fox News crew traveling with the caravan
observed a group of migrants in Tepanatepec climbing up the sides of a tall red truck Monday morning after it pulled into an
area where the city's mayor and volunteers were distributing food.
Erupts: Caravan Migrant Killed At Mexican Border; Police Deny Responsibility. On Sunday [10/28/2018], a
new wave of hundreds of migrants heading toward the U.S. attempted to force their way over Mexico's southern border.
Violence erupted, leaving one of the migrants dead after what the group says was a rubber bullet fired by Mexican federal
police struck him in the head. Mexican authorities, however, deny that their security forces are to blame. The
incident took place at the border near Tecun Uman, where the group of migrants "broke through border barriers," as another
group had done last week. The situation quickly devolved into violence.
Caravan: U.S. Military Will Have Up to 14,000 Troops, Many Armed, Ready to Intervene at Mexico Border.
The U.S. military will have an actual force of up to 14,000 ready to intervene at the southern border with Mexico, including
an additional 7,000 planned deployment in reserves on round-the-clock standby. The Pentagon announced Monday
[10/29/2018] that it will send up to 5,200 troops to the border ahead of the anticipated arrival of a caravan of Central
American migrants that President Donald Trump has warned would not be able to enter the country. These troops, which
"are in fact deploying with weapons" will join up to 2,000 National Guards already at the border for a combined force of
about 7,200 — or about the same amount of U.S. soldiers involved in the battle against the Islamic State militant
group (ISIS) in Iraq and Syria.
Trump to Expand Military Border Deployment from 800 to 5,000. Reports on Monday [10/29/2018] indicate that
President Donald Trump will order an expansion of the U.S. military deployment to the U.S. southwest border. The order
is expected to increase the number of troops being deployed from 800 to 5,000. The Wall Street Journal reported
on Monday morning that the U.S. military plans to deploy 5,000 troops to the southwest border region in response to the
caravan of "would-be asylum seekers." The plans reportedly call for 1,800 troops to deploy to Texas, 1,700 to Arizona,
and 1,500 to California.
Military's Most Important Role Is Border Defense. Our country has been thrust into a scene out of The Camp
of the Saints: a large caravan of migrants organized in Honduras is streaming towards our southern border
proclaiming the right to enter and work in our country. They're not invited, nor is this legal, but they are seizing
their destiny (and ours) as pueblos sin fronteras, "workers without borders." Some have scoffed at the description of
this "caravan" as an invasion, dismissing it as right-wing hyperbole. But what is the difference? Formal or
informal, through modern armies or tribal warriors, invasions are objects of concern because they determine who controls a
land and its resources.
Nations: Trump Must Allow Caravan Migrants into America. International officials with the United Nations
(UN) Refugee Agency say President Trump must allow a caravan of Central Americans into the United States to seek
asylum. As Breitbart News has chronicled, migrants with an at least 7,000-strong caravan have repeatedly admitted that
they are traveling to the U.S. to seek jobs, re-enter the U.S. as previously deported illegal aliens, and flee crime.
One previously deported illegal alien with the caravan even admitted that he was convicted of attempted murder in the U.S.
None of these cases are eligible asylum claims.
on Caravan: Republicans Have 'Baseless Fear of Some Families 1,000 Miles Away from the Border'. House
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi issued a statement about immigration on Friday in which she said Republicans were using
"fearmongering rhetoric." "The GOP is desperate to change the conversation from their assault on Americans' health care
to the baseless fear of some families 1,000 miles away from the border," Pelosi said, referring to the "caravan" of thousands
of people now heading north though Mexico toward the U.S. border.
sends 5,200 troops backed by Blackhawks, drones and C-130s in the air to the Mexican border to 'deter' caravan from ever
arriving. The Pentagon is dispatching 5,200 active military troops to 'harden' the southern border and comply
with President Donald Trump's order to deter an immigrant caravan the president called an 'invasion', it said Monday
[10/29/2018]. Eight hundred troops were already en route Monday — a force the Defense Department is
dramatically increasing by adding helicopter companies and engineers who are bringing 'heavy equipment.' In total DOD
is sending 5,200 troops to 'harden' the border, the Pentagon said at a briefing Monday.
can refuse to accept asylum applications. Many people mistakenly believe that asylum seekers have a right to
apply for asylum in the United States. The first paragraph in the Immigration and Nationality Act's (INA) asylum
provisions provides that aliens physically present in the United States "may" apply for asylum. But the second
paragraph provides the following three exceptions, and asylum may be denied on the basis of disqualifying conduct, such as
having been convicted of a particularly serious crime.
caravan halfway through journey to U.S.. Thousands of migrants who are enduring brutal conditions on their
journey are determined to reach the United States border, despite an offer of refuge in Mexico.
in Caravan Reject Mexico's Offer for Help, Heading to U.S. Instead. Mexico's government unveiled a plan to
provide employment, health care, and education to thousands of Central American migrants who are part of the caravan that is
traveling from Honduras towards the U.S border.
in Caravan Turn Down Mexican Offer of Work Permits, Asylum. Only about 1700 of the estimated 7,000 Central
American refugees in a caravan heading to the U.S. border have accepted an offer from the Mexican government for
asylum. The rest, now about 1,000 miles from the U.S. border, are continuing on their way. The Mexican offer of
asylum seems fairly substantial.
nix offer to stay in Mexico. Hundreds of Mexican federal officers carrying plastic shields blocked a Central
American caravan from advancing toward the United States on Saturday, after a group of several thousand migrants turned down
the chance to apply for refugee status and obtain a Mexican offer of benefits.
Clarke: '14 or 15 Thousand People Storming Your Border Is an Invasion'. David Clarke, former Milwaukee sheriff
and current spokesperson for America First Action, told Breitbart News that a migrant caravan approaching the U.S. is "an
invasion." [...] Clarke said, "I want to thank the president for remaining firm on protecting the southern border from this
trespassing. This is an invasion of the United States. Illegal immigration has boiled to the top of issues going
into the midterms. ... It will remain a top issue."
Military moving equipment to border ahead of migrant caravan. The U.S. military has already begun delivering
jersey barriers to the southern border in conjunction with plans to deploy active duty troops there, U.S. Defense Secretary
Jim Mattis said Sunday as a caravan of Central Americans slowly heads across Mexico toward the United States.
Congress Can Prevent the Next Border Surge. A thousand miles or so from the southern U.S. border, Central
American migrants are on the march. What began with around 5,000 people has swelled to as many as 14,000 —
and possibly more. They have traveled on foot approximately 500 miles so far, walking through immigration checkpoints
in Honduras, Guatemala, and Mexico with minimal resistance. Their stated aim is to enter the United States, even if
they have to break our laws to do it.
caravan to rest following report of abducted child. Coordinators of a caravan of several thousand Central
American migrants moving through southern Mexico urged its members to rest Sunday. At first the migrants vowed to press
on anyway but later changed their minds amid reports that a child had been abducted.
Caravan Exposes the Democrats. Shouldn't it be easy for Pelosi and Schumer to just say that the people in the
caravan should not be allowed to walk right into the country, that any legitimate asylum claims will be processed according
to the normal fashion, and that they advise anyone, especially vulnerable people, against making a 1,000-mile journey through
Mexico with people they do not know? Maybe it should be easy to say that, but it isn't. In a way, it's odd that
Democrats can't at least pay lip service to immigration enforcement. After all, their recent promises on the matter
have been taken in the same spirit as Hillary Clinton's and Barack Obama's onetime opposition to same-sex marriage.
These are things Democrats feel compelled to say to appease a retrograde electorate, but they don't mean it and they won't
follow through on it.
Using Cloward-Piven as their Midterm Hail Mary Pass. Cloward-Piven is a political strategy first described in
1966, by two Columbia University sociologists, Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. This was published appropriately
in the far-left The Nation, the oldest continuously published news magazine in the country. Cloward-Piven's goal was
the creation of, "A political crisis would result that could lead to legislation for a guaranteed annual income and thus an
end to poverty." The objective was chaos and turmoil, or in their words, "A massive drive to recruit the poor onto the
welfare rolls." This would be followed by, "A federal program of income redistribution has become necessary to elevate
the poor en masse from poverty."
Hombres Found In Migrant Caravan Approaching America. It won't be a shock for you to read that some really bad
hombres have been discovered to be among the migrant caravan, some 7,000 strong, walking towards the southern border of
America. The folks at Judicial Watch have interviewed some who have previously been deported and are now trying to get
back in and some more nefarious characters, like human traffickers. They've also met with Guatemalan President Jimmy
Morales. [...] The narrative being pushed by the gullible media is that these Central Americans are poor and hungry, looking
for jobs and a better life. However, that's a pretty big fantasy in the minds of regular Americans who watch news
coverage of a stream of people walking towards America demanding to be let in. When interviewed, the same talking
points are offered and the whole thing seems to be staged.
caravan, rejecting Mexican offers, continues drive north. More than a hundred Mexican federal officers carrying
plastic shields abandoned a blockade they had formed on a bridge Saturday, allowing a caravan of thousands of Central
American migrants to advance toward the United States. The officers ended the standoff after representatives from
Mexico's National Human Rights Commission told police that a rural stretch of highway without shade, toilets or water was no
place for migrants to entertain offers of asylum in Mexico. Police boarded buses and headed further down the highway,
while migrants cheered and vowed to trek all the way to the U.S. border.
Francisco to Allow Illegal Aliens to Vote. In July, the Department of Elections issued voter registration forms
to illegal aliens to vote for members of the San Francisco Board of Education in the 2018 election, reported ABC7 News.
Now that the illegals are registered and ready, they will be voting in November.
Dem Plan To Turn Their Open Border Dream Into America's Nightmare. Hypothetically, if an FBI agent obtained a
warrant to raid a drug trafficker's house and arrest him, but the trafficker had a minor daughter home with him, [Senator]
Feinstein's bill would prohibit the FBI agents, while arresting a drug trafficker, from separating the child from her father.
[...] Smugglers and drug traffickers know that using children to pose as a family unit will grant them entry into the U.S.
and enable them to evade the consequences of their criminal action. [...] According to the U.S. Department Of Homeland
Security (DHS), there has been "a staggering increase in the number of illegal aliens using children to pose as family units
in order to gain entry into the U.S."
is right, mainstream media is wrong on terrorist threat from migrant caravan. During the waning months of the
Obama administration, none other than former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson sent out a memo to law
enforcement agencies with the subject line, "Cross-Border Movement of Special Interest Aliens". According to DHS' official
definition, Special Interest Aliens (SIAs) are individuals from 35 countries that "have shown a tendency to promote, produce,
or protect terrorist organizations," aka countries from the Middle East or those in Africa and Asia with a presence of terrorist
networks. The Johnson memo called for the creation of a "multi-DHS Component SIA Joint Action Group" designed to "counter
the threats posed by the smuggling of SIAs" and "the increased global movement of SIAs" in order to eventually "bring down
organizations involved in the smuggling of SIAs into and within the United States." As Todd Bensman of Center for
Immigration Studies observed, the memo was "unusual in the sense that they demanded the 'immediate attention' of the nation's
most senior immigration and border security leaders to counter such an obscure terrorism threat." Bensman is a former
intelligence officer for Texas Department of Public Safety. Of course, this plan never came to fruition but the fact
that someone as liberal as Jeh Johnson found a need to warn about "the increased global involvement of SIAs" should be very
concerning to all of us.
of US troops heading to the border to deal with migrant caravan, official says. Hundreds of U.S. troops are set
to make their way to the southern border to help Homeland Security and the National Guard as a caravan with thousands of
migrants pushes north with the goal of crossing into America, a U.S. official confirmed to Fox News on Thursday [10/25/2018].
The official said roughly 800 soldiers will be sent to the area to offer "logistical support," including providing tents and
vehicles. It's not immediately clear which units are being tasked with the mission as details are still being finalized.
State's ridiculous 'vote boxes' degrade the franchise for everyone. When [the Democrats] attack our duly elected officials and
the Constitution, they are personally attacking you for your measured and thoughtful choices. Their most egregious trick may yet occur
when the next band of illegals arrives at our southern border. Will the Democratic Party's tainted ethos arrange for these people to
acquire motor voter cards along with food stamps and housing vouchers? Americans are convinced that the Democrats are behind those
male-populated mobs marching northward, just as they were during President Obama's blatant emigrant invitation in 2014, when the emigrant
trains traveled through Central America to our borders. Does anyone know how many were allowed in? Will the new wave be here
in time for the midterms?
he 'agrees with Obama 100%' as he shared clip of former president saying 'We cannot allow people to pour into the country undocumented'.
President Trump retrieved an old video of Barack Obama speaking in favor of a strict immigration policy and surprisingly tweeted out his support for the
statement Tuesday afternoon [10/23/2018]. Obama, who was a senator from Illinois at the time, said in the C-SPAN clip: 'We are generous and
welcoming people here in the United States, but those who enter the country illegally, and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law and they are
showing disregard for those who are following the law.
Immigration Hurts Black Americans Most. In the 19th century, savvy American saloon-owners offered free lunches
to attract noontime patrons. Inevitably, the diners would get thirsty and buy expensive drinks — thus was
born the expression, "there's no such thing as a free lunch." Despite its humble origins, the phrase captures a deep and
omnipresent truth: everything has a price, an opportunity cost, a trade-off. This is as true of lunches as it is of
America's immigration policy. Although The Economist's propaganda-artists claim otherwise, mass immigration does not
enrich all Americans. There are obvious winners and losers. The winners are wealthy Americans and the immigrants
themselves; the losers are everyone else, especially the working class, Millennials, and black Americans.
immigration enriches America — Illegal immigration doesn't. I'm a George W. Bush, pro-immigration
reform Republican, the son of an immigrant and someone who welcomes legal immigrants to our country. But the caravan of
roughly 7,000 would-be asylum seekers marching through Mexico toward the U.S. represents all that is wrong with our immigration
system. The people marching here would be better served if they applied to come to America legally. If they try to
come here illegally they should not be let in. One of the reasons the U.S. is attractive to immigrants is because we are a
nation of laws. But that doesn't mean that the first thing immigrants can do is break the law to get here. They can't.
the caravan around — the US is not a dumping ground. With all of the coverage regarding the Honduran
caravan marching toward the U.S. border, it's time to have a conversation about who we want to be as a country in the
future. Not in the distant future, but in the very near future; maybe less than 10 years from now. Because what
we decide to do today will set the tone for the next several generations. Like nails on a chalkboard, we keep hearing
Democrats and left-wing activists talk about these desperate immigrants seeking asylum and refuge from dysfunctional
societies. We are told that it's about "humanity first" and that we have a moral obligation to take them in.
However, we should not be fooled by the emotional reactions (and political maneuverings) of those who claim to speak for the
caravan. The United States is under zero moral obligations to take citizens from misgoverned countries around the globe.
Hondurans Paint Swastika On American
Flag, Set It On Fire; Wave Honduran Flags, Give Us The Finger. These are the people demanding we open our
borders. You can see this photo as the very final image in this Associated Press slideshow covering the migrant caravan
headed to the US.
could win big with executive order halting caravan. President Donald Trump is mulling an executive order that
would stop the caravan in its tracks and send the thousands and thousands of people trying to cross America's borders back to
their homes. That makes perfect sense. It's a viable solution that would lead to a redefining of asylum
seekers — a honing, of sorts, of the criteria that determines who gets into the country versus who gets
refused. The left will fight. But remember the travel ban? This is the same left that was just slapped by
the Supreme Court when justices ruled Trump does indeed have the power to keep out those deemed "detrimental to the interests
of the United States." With that court wind at his back, Trump stands a good chance of defeating any legal challenges
to come over an executive order that has the practical effect of stopping this caravan in its tracks.
Ridicules Fears Over Migrant Caravans Headed to US. Campaigning in Wisconsin on Friday for Democrats running in
next month's mid-term elections, former President Barack Obama ridiculed Americans who are fearful of the migrant caravans
headed to the United States via Mexico and the politicians who are making stopping mass illegal immigration a campaign
issue. Several caravans comprised of thousands of migrants mostly from Central America are currently making their way
from Honduras through Guatemala and on into Mexico with the goal of claiming asylum in the United States. Obama spoke
in a haughty, comedic voice, raising his pitch and using his arms and hands to make exaggerated points of ridicule.
Police Stop Buses and Trucks — Force Them to Take Caravan Immigrants North to US Border. The illegal
immigrant caravan of mostly military-aged Honduran males has swelled to over 14,000 people as it marches up Mexico to the US
border. The DHS confirmed this week that gang members and other dangerous criminals are embedded in the caravan.
Migrants from the Middle East, Africa and South Asia have also latched onto the caravan, according to the Department of
media's shameful coverage of Central American 'caravan'. Television journalism soars when reporters find a way
to answer the questions viewers are asking their TV screens while watching coverage of a major event. That's why it was
maddening and frustrating to watch this past week's coverage of the so-called "caravan" of thousands of Hondurans,
Guatemalans and Salvadorans plowing through Mexico's southern border and their subsequent march toward the United
States. I found myself yelling the same question at my television screen over and over: "Who is paying for this?"
I asked in vain as embedded reporters interviewed various Central Americans about the hardships in their native
countries. "Who is organizing this?" I yelled. But, for some reason, the reporters never asked the question.
Isn't Serious About Stopping the Caravan. In April of this year, Secretary of Defense James Mattis approved a
memo ordering the deployment of up to 4,000 U.S. National Guardsmen to the southwestern border (provided that the governors
of border states approve of the action and that the Department of Homeland Security reimburse the Department of Defense for
its troubles). Yet, the DoD instituted such strict rules of engagement for the National Guardsmen that they've proven
useless to the Border Patrol. What's more, the 800 active-duty troops that are being deployed to the border are not
charged with providing physical support of the Border Patrol and National Guard. Instead, the Pentagon has opted to
send its doctors, lawyers, and engineers. What do you think military doctors, engineers, and lawyers are going to do to
turn back the human wave threatening America's porous southwest? (Hint: they're not going to physically turn back
that caravan; they're going to accommodate it in all likelihood!) As I reported earlier this year, the Pentagon has
already approved the Department of Homeland Security's request to turn unused areas of large U.S. military bases along the
southwestern border into tent cities. Clearly, the Pentagon has decided to engage in its own bit of policymaking,
regardless of what the president has ordered — or what the American people want (and what the United States
Offers to Provide Jobs, Education to Caravan Migrants. Mexico's government unveiled a plan to provide
employment, health care, and education to thousands of Central American migrants who are part of the caravan that is
traveling from Honduras towards the U.S border. This week, Mexico's government unveiled their plan called "Estas En Tu
Casa" or "You Are in Your Home." The program provides the migrants with temporary employment, access to government-funded
health care, and education for their children. The migrants who take part in the program will be employed in the
cleaning and maintenance of public buildings and roads. As Breitbart News has reported, thousands of migrants from
Honduras are making their way into Mexico in an effort to reach the U.S. Border. The caravan has caused international
tension as the U.S. government threatened to remove international aid to Central America if the caravan is not stopped.
much for 'refuge.' Caravan army turns up its nose at Mexico's generous offer of asylum. If there's anything
that points to the political nature of the thousands-strong migrant caravan heading north to the U.S., it's the migrants'
rejection of Mexico's generous offer of political asylum, along with jobs, medical care, and big benefit packages.
According to this Associated Press report, they'd rather confront Trump. [...]
at Europe - The Road to Hell Is Littered with Migrant Caravans. Estimates vary that there are between ten and
twenty million illegal aliens already in the United States so one would think that a few thousand third world peasants aren't
going to make a difference. Should they succeed and be allowed entry the repercussions will be far reaching and
devastating. Without immigration reform the precedent would make America's borders redundant and therefore encourage
further caravans, not only from neighboring countries, but from around the world. The trickle will become a deluge.
Once regularized with documentation, their path to citizenship would have to be extended to the millions of other illegal aliens
already in residence altering the demographic balance and thereby guaranteeing power to the globalist elite in perpetuity.
The Caravan Is a Consequence of Rewarding Illegal Immigration. The open-borders Left and their talking heads in
the media are falsely describing the caravan's trek as a "humanitarian crisis." But that is nonsense. There is no war
or drought in Central America that the migrants are fleeing. They are simply coming to the United States en masse
for economic reasons, hoping that their immense numbers swamp our immigration system or that they can otherwise find a way into the
country. The caravan is a perfect storm of problems that cause illegal immigration. It illustrates the fecklessness of
foreign governments like Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador that receive more than $500 million in foreign aid from the United
States but can't be bothered to lift a finger on America's behalf when their own citizens threaten to invade our southern
border. It also illustrates the complete lack of respect for American sovereignty and American law by the illegal alien
felons who have been deported multiple times and are now joining the ranks of the caravan. For example, six-time deportee
Anthony Fuentes is hoping to make his seventh entry into the United States with the caravan.
who's speaking out against caravan border-jumpers. Latinos and Hispanics legally here in the U.S. are speaking
out against the caravan heading north from Honduras to the U.S. That was the report from Univision, which is hardly a
conservative news site. [...] I know one working-class family in the construction industry that was originally from the
Guadalajara area, refugees from the Cristero persecution of the early 20th century, who moved to Glendale to get away from
all the illegals and their mayhem around South Pasadena. They can't stand lawbreaking, including immigration lawbreaking.
walls only work if illegal immigration is illegal. Once they are here, there are thousands of pro bono lawyers
who can petition lawless lower courts to violate our sovereignty and make it impossible to deport them. Thus, rather
than trying to avoid detection by our border agents, the illegal invaders actually seek them out. This is where
understanding the use of a border wall comes into play. A border wall is a very effective force multiplier for the
Border Patrol if the goal of apprehension is to immediately block or deport those apprehended and that message is conveyed to
the would-be trespasser. While it is possible for physically healthy people to climb most walls, it takes some time,
especially if a group of people is trying to come over together. They would likely be apprehended by the Border Patrol
by the time they get over, or at least would fear the likelihood of such detection. But here's the rub. That only
applies if we have sane policies where illegal immigration is, you know, illegal. But if we allow courts to make a
mockery of our clearly written laws, then rather than fearing detection, illegal immigrants seek out detection. Thus,
they will not only come at points of entry to surrender themselves, they will climb the border wall anywhere between the
points of entry and surrender themselves.
to Handle the Caravans. We've seen caravans before. There was a 1,500-person caravan that marched north
just this past April. Of the band, only 400 actually reached the border and requested asylum. On average, about
22 percent of asylum requests are granted. Now, contrary to the tone of some left-leaning coverage, it is not inhumane
to say that there is no "right" to enter the United States. We don't have an open-door policy. We have laws and
procedures. One of those is asylum. The caravan coverage on the left is all about babies in strollers and desperate
women seeking refuge from criminals. And those stories are heart-wrenching. What they rarely acknowledge is that
many migrants, especially able-bodied young men, are simply seeking a better life. There's nothing immoral about that
(in their place, I would do the same), but neither do you get priority in immigration just because you live in a miserable
country nearby. To abolish ICE, as some on the left demand, would be the equivalent of throwing open the borders.
are using migrant caravan for twisted political game before midterm elections. Is America the greatest nation
in human history? Or is it the worst? If you listen to progressives, it's impossible to tell. That's
because on the one hand, those on the left say our country is at its darkest moment ever, about to collapse under the weight
of bigotry and prejudice. But on the other hand, they're cheering the roughly 7,000 Central American migrants now
making the trek through Mexico toward the U.S. border, assuring them that the American Dream awaits. This doesn't add
up. Progressives are talking out of both sides of their mouths, showing that they're cynics as well as
hypocrites. If they actually believed that America is as awful as they claim, they'd be acting as if this were an
irradiated wasteland, warning non-Americans to stay as far as away as possible. In truth, progressives are playing a
twisted political game. The migrants are genuinely destitute and the victims of corrupt, socialist governments —
and their lives are being risked to score partisan points. They're being turned into unwitting pawns.
Guess Who's Funding
the Invasion of America. Four years of recession and the world's highest inflation have plunged millions of
Venezuelans into poverty under President Nicolas Maduro's authoritarian socialist regime. Suicides are rapidly rising
across this once-wealthy nation, plagued by hyperinflation, hunger and mass emigration. Bodies at morgues in Venezuelan
are reportedly exploding from rot. Amid desperate food shortages, towns and cities across Venezuela face an outbreak of
looting and mob violence. Angry about empty supermarket shelves and soaring prices, some people are breaking into
warehouses. They're ransacking food trucks and invading outlying farms. Further, hungry mobs are even
slaughtering cattle grazing in fields, as unrest over food shortages spread through the country. Venezuelan citizens
are said to be eating their pets. But their government doesn't care. What they do care about is making Donald
Trump look bad.
US to 'deploy 800 troops to border'
ahead of caravan. Defence Secretary James Mattis is expected to deploy around 800 troops to the US-Mexico
border to stop a migrant caravan, US media say. The soldiers would assist with fencing and support at key points along
the southern border, administration officials tell CNN. The caravan of thousands of Central American migrants is making
its way toward the US through Mexico. President Donald Trump said on Thursday [10/25/2018] he was "bringing out the military".
Roundup: Spanish Caravan Edition. In an ominous, landlocked, real-life version of the dystopian novel
The Camp of the Saints, the refugees are coming en masse. They started as a group of 160. Within days
there were ten times as many. As of this writing, an estimated 14,000 Central American migrants are walking in a caravan
that started in Honduras and intends to illegally cross the US/Mexico border in Texas. Honduras is a country of 9.4 million
people. For the past few years it has had one of the world's highest homicide rates. About two thirds of its residents
make about $2 per day. They're coming to America for a better life, but are they bringing a far worse life along with them?
O'Rourke Campaign Won't
Comment Yet on the Migrant Caravan Marching Toward the US Border. Texas Democratic Senate candidate Beto
O'Rourke's campaign would not share his views about the migrant caravan filled with thousands of people from Central America
traveling through Mexico toward the U.S., when asked by The Daily Caller News Foundation. In an email to TheDCNF,
O'Rourke's campaign responded to an inquiry regarding the caravan, saying the Texas Democrat does not yet have anything to
say about the migrant caravan approaching, and sending a link to an immigration section on O'Rourke's campaign website, which
touts his lax immigration views.
Caravan Is Real. We have borders, and should enforce them. Whatever Trump's exaggerations, the caravan
itself isn't a fabrication. It started as a group of 160 people in Honduras. It quickly grew to 1,600.
Guatemala tried to close its border to the migrants, but rapidly gave in. By the time the caravan reached the Mexican border,
it had gathered about 3,000 people, and grew to as large as 7,000 as it crossed into Mexico. The media has run with the
story because it isn't every day that a group of thousands of migrants crashes through a Mexican border-crossing in defiance
of the governments of Mexico and the United States.
clash is coming — and the left can't wait. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a televised
press conference that the thousands of people walking from Central America to the United States would not be allowed to
cross. No, not under any circumstances. And because he means it — and because this long trail of
unruly, unconcerned-with-law people mean to cross — the end result, in the eyes of common sense, means a clash is
coming. A physical clash. One of violence and bruisings and injuries and perhaps even bloodshed. The only
thing left to decide are the details: What kind of clash that will be, where that clash will occur, how many that clash
the border in El Paso, the migrants arrive so regularly there's a housing crunch. While President Trump railed
against a migrant caravan wending its way north through Mexico this week, hundreds of Central American immigrant families had
already arrived at the border and been released into the U.S. by authorities. The influx, unrelated to the caravan, has
crowded immigration holding areas and detention centers across the Southwest. The Border Patrol has released so many
families, advocacy groups in Arizona and Texas have had to house them in churches and motels. In El Paso, the
nonprofit Annunciation House shelter expected to take in 1,200 migrants this week and 1,500 more next week.
Optics Are Bad for Progressives. For progressives, the looming midterm elections apparently should not hinge on
a booming economy, a near-record-low unemployment rate, a strong stock market and unprecedented energy production.
Instead, progressives hope that race and gender questions overshadow pocketbook issues. The media is fixated on another
caravan of foreign nationals flowing toward the United States from Central America. More than 5,000 mostly Honduran
migrants say they will cross through Mexico. Then they plan to crash the American border, enter the U.S. illegally,
claim refugee status and demand asylum. Once inside the United States, the newcomers will count on a variety of ways to
rolls out red carpet for invading horde — I mean 'caravan'. As the so-called US-bound "caravan"
traveling through Mexico continues to swell, some questions arise that the media will not ask. Who is funding these
efforts? How has it grown so quickly and what did the Democrats have to offer besides a bunch of cliches and bromides,
and of course grandstanding? If you have been watching other networks, you have been treated to sympathetic,
overwrought coverage of this invading horde, which is anything but a "caravan." Mainstream news networks have dispatched
teams of embedded reporters who are not so much covering the migrant mob as covering for it. They highlight the
wonderful camaraderie and welcoming spirit of the masses bent on breaking into our nation. If you are skeptical, or
dare to think our border should be secure, you are a "fear-monger" who doesn't treat people with proper respect. Why,
you may have even turned your back on the teachings of Christ, according to the previously militantly secular media.
says MS-13, terrorists are part of caravan. President Trump lashed out Monday afternoon at Central American
countries he said "did nothing" to stop the migrant caravan heading north toward the U.S., saying it was a betrayal of the
money the U.S. has sent them. "We give them hundreds of millions of dollars, they do nothing for us," the president
said at the White House as he prepared to depart for a campaign trip to Texas. He was speaking specifically of Honduras,
El Salvador and Guatemala, the three countries that account for most of the children and families flowing north in recent years.
firebrand who started the migrant caravan: Honduran radio host encouraged people to band together for safety. The
man behind the migrant caravan currently snaking its way towards the US has been revealed as a former Honduran lawmaker and radio
host. Bartolo Fuentes, who lives in the capital Tegucigalpa, said it all began when he tried to help a few dozen migrants band
together so they could go north with safety in numbers and support each other. But things snowballed when HCH, the most-viewed
TV news channel in Honduras, incorrectly reported that Fuentes was willing to pay transportation costs for anyone making the journey,
cites 2005 Obama remarks to support immigration policy. President Trump turned to an unlikely source Tuesday evening
[10/23/2018] to find support for his hard-line immigration policies: his predecessor, Barack Obama. Trump tweeted a 2005
video in which Obama, then a senator, made a statement against illegal immigration, accompanied by the comment "I agree with President
Obama 100%". "We are a generous and welcoming people here in the United States," Obama says in the 31-second clip. "But
those who enter the country illegally and those who employ them disrespect the rule of law and they are showing disregard for those
who are following the law. We simply cannot allow people to pour into the United States undetected, undocumented, unchecked,
and circumventing the line of people who are waiting patiently, diligently and lawfully to become immigrants into this country."
migrant caravan in Guatemala heads toward Mexico. A group of over a thousand Central Americans in Guatemala
headed toward the Mexican border on Tuesday, as a larger caravan of migrants that has angered U.S. President Donald Trump
paused in southern Mexico on its planned journey toward the U.S. border.
Traveling in Illegal Caravan Confirms Trump's Claim: Of Course There Are Criminals Here. Yesterday
[10/22/2018] President Trump claimed there are a number of criminals traveling in the illegal caravan, which is now 7,000
people strong and making its way through Mexico to the United States. [...] His usual critics pounced, saying there is no
evidence to back up his claim. President Trump encouraged reporters to take their cameras and do some digging. [...]
Turns out, he was right. While violent criminals do not make up the majority of the caravan, there are some using it to
get to the United States.
Activists Are Weaponizing Poor Central Americans. For the second time this year, a caravan of Central American
migrants is headed to the United States. The group took off from San Pedro Sula earlier this week, a city located in
the northern part of Honduras. The caravan crossed into Guatemala on Wednesday and is expected to cross into Mexico as
they travel to the U.S.'s southern border. Originally the group started off in the few hundreds, they are now around
4,000 people. This latest migrant caravan is another example of leftist groups grandstanding off of desperation and
poverty. The Northern Triangle region of Central America where El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras are located is one
of the most violent areas of the world. Transnational organized criminal groups and violent street gangs destabilize
these impoverished countries. This leaves massive parts of the population vulnerable and with little means to survive.
Harris: Americans Must be 'Welcoming,' 'Tolerant' to Caravan. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) —
who is eyeing a 2020 presidential bid against President Trump — says the United States should be "welcoming"
migrant caravans that arrive at the nation's southern border. While campaigning for Democrats in Iowa, Harris told a
CNN reporter that the U.S. response to the 7,000-strong migrant caravan of job-seekers and previously deported illegal aliens
should be "welcoming" and "tolerant."
you use the military on the border? Suppose the enemy were able to mobilize millions of people from the most
poverty-stricken countries in the world and have them invade our country, using children as their shields. Suppose
further that those massive numbers of people just started walking toward our borders in open defiance of our immigration
policies. What would you, running the United States, be willing to do to stop the invasion? President Trump says,
if necessary, he'll use the U.S. military to shut down the border. That will work if the military is prepared to take
confrontational action against those who defy our laws and try to force their way in. If the invaders employ their
usual tactic, children will be in the front lines of the invasion. Will the American public be willing to accept video
clips of our soldiers pushing children backward to keep them from entering our land? If the invasion becomes violent,
will we see children being trampled and killed as layers of humanity move forward over the bodies of the fallen? What
our enemies are counting on is that Americans will be appalled by such scenes and call Trump a monster.
meets with top brass, renews threat to send troops to the border. Flanked by [Defense Secretary Jim] Mattis
and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Joseph Dunford, Trump held court for about 14 minutes in the Cabinet room before a
private meeting and dinner. Just before dismissing the press, the president reiterated he's still considering
dispatching the active-duty military to the southern border in response to a caravan of asylum-seeking immigrants marching
north through Mexico. "The military, not just the National Guard, the military is what I'm thinking about," Trump
said. "We can't have people coming into our country illegally."
Venezuela was behind the great Honduras migrant caravan all along? According to Vice President Mike Pence,
Honduras's president, Juan Orlando Hernández, told him that the illegal migrant caravan heading from his country through
Mexico on to the U.S. is the work of Chavista Venezuela, with that country's oil cash being employed to destabilize both
countries. [...] The one clue we have starts with the two governments of Guatemala and Honduras, both of which have
conservative, anti-Chavista governments. They also have disgustingly rabid left-wing oppositions, the kind of people
who openly admire Hugo Chávez and his utterly failed socialist revolution. They like Cuba's government, too.
They are rabid left-wingers, and they seek above all to destabilize and topple the countries of their origin in order to see
those countries join their heroes. They can't get elected anymore, so this is what they do.
President Mike Pence Reveals Central American Invasion Horde is: "Financed by Venezuela". Quietly within
the deliberate words from Vice-President Mike Pence a revelation that explains the origination of the Central American

The Caravan to Nowhere. These columns favor
generous immigration and asylum for refugees. But when migration becomes a political weapon to foment border chaos,
leaders have no choice other than to step in and protect national security. Exhibit A are the 4,000 or so Central
Americans moving on foot through Mexico to the U.S. Waves of humanity marching in lock step don't materialize
spontaneously and neither has this "caravan." This march is organized and not necessarily for the benefit of the
migrants. Mr. Trump has good reason to turn it back. Not since the 1980 Mariel boatlift from Cuba has there
been a similar attempt to overwhelm U.S. immigration law on the pretext of celebrating American freedom. Thousands of
Cubans made their way to Florida when Fidel Castro temporarily lifted his Havana Curtain, and American boats of every shape
and size sailed into the Caribbean to collect them.
silence is consent on the immigrant caravan. It's not really a "caravan," is it? Those thousands of desperate migrants
walking across Mexico, a massive crowd that grows by the day, are intent on forcing a confrontation at the U.S. border. This crowd
can be called many things, but "caravan" isn't one of them. The approach of the desperate thousands from Central America has energized
Republicans just days before the November elections. President Donald Trump says the migrants will not be allowed to cross into the
U.S. illegally. Democrats call this fear-mongering, but among Democrats it has caused political paralysis, a self-destructive institutional
passivity. Democratic leaders want their members to stay silent. And there's one thing about silence. "Chi tace
acconsente," says my barber, Raffaele Raia. "He who is silent says 'yes'. The silence is the consent.".
Migrant Caravan May Give Republicans The Final Midterm Push They Need. It started with several hundred people
in Honduras on Oct. 12th. In ten days, the "migrant caravan" of foreign citizens claiming they plan to stampede U.S.
borders swelled to more than 7,000 people. They have marched more than 1,000 miles across Honduras, Guatemala, and into
Mexico, with apparently no resistance from those governments. Many have seen the images of a seemingly endless flood of people
as part of this "caravan." They may still be a thousand miles away from the closest U.S.-Mexico border crossing point, but we
can already feel their presence.
won't admit Trump was right about migrant caravans. On the theory that you can judge a president by his
critics, Donald Trump must be hitting the bull's-eye with his warnings about the migrants vowing to smash through our
border. We know this because the usual suspects — The New York Times and CNN, among others — are
accusing Trump of making much ado about next to nothing. [...] Long gone are the days when readers could expect even a
pretense of fairness from the Gray Lady. But the bias, fused with an intentional blind eye regarding the origins,
growing size and militancy of the caravan, is beyond the pale. Consider that a trek that started with fewer than
200 people in Honduras suddenly ballooned to more than 7,500 as reports emerged of left-wing activists organizing the
crowds. Photos of the staggeringly long lines and of leaders breaking down fences between Guatemala and Mexico
demonstrate there is legitimate reason for concern, especially when some leaders say they are determined to come to America.
the man behind the migrant caravan headed to US. Meet Bartolo Fuentes, the Honduran ex-lawmaker who helped
launch the 7,000-strong caravan marching toward the United States — on a promise he says he never made. In
September, Fuentes began coordinating with groups dispersed throughout Honduras seeking to make the trek north. The
initial number of people involved was about 200. A woman reportedly part of the caravan told TV anchors of Fuentes'
efforts, and she mentioned "assistance." The anchors then supposedly said Fuentes would pay migrants' food and transportation
costs — which he denied in an interview. Still, thousands took a chance, since a human-smuggling "coyote"
charges upwards of $7,000 to take someone across the US border.
Alien Invasion. [Scroll down] Sanctuary cities beckon illegal aliens and the criminals, gang members, fugitives
and terrorists among them, encouraging them and inducing them to head for the United States and claim "asylum." However, when
an individual flees his/her native country seeking asylum, they are supposed to apply for asylum in the first country that they
enter. Hondurans entering Guatemala, for example, should apply for asylum in Guatemala. Furthermore, asylum claims
are supposed to be solely based on the applicant demonstrating a "credible fear" that he/she faces persecution or worse, because
of their race, religion, political views or other such factors. Fleeing general violence in their home countries or seeking
economic opportunities not available there are not considered grounds for asylum.
Means the Wall Will Be Built. If the caravan of thousands of prospective illegal aliens marching for our
Southern border like an invading army has succeeded in one thing, it is that the wall finally will be built. You can
book it. People are fed up. And they damn well should be. If it gets any worse — and it
could — we might see an army of of our own citizen volunteers heading down to the border themselves to build
it. Talk about unintended consequences. Try that one on your piano, George Soros or whatever assembled
reactionary leftwing creeps instigated this escapade.
Migrant Caravan In Guatemala, Univision Correspondent Reports. A Spanish language reporter who has spent weeks
embedded with the migrant caravan said in a Friday report that people from Bangladesh had joined the mass of people trying to
cross from Guatemala into Mexico. Univision correspondent Francisco Santa Anna reported from the bridge separating
Guatemala and Mexico. The bridge has been packed with thousands of migrants demanding access to Mexico, with the
ultimate goal of crossing the border of the United States illegally. The caravan has now swelled to many thousands.

vast Honduran migrant caravan, as many as 10,000 strong now, crawling up to the U.S. border to illegally enter the U.S.

Invasion: Honduran Caravan Includes Military-Aged Male Migrants From Bangladesh, Haiti and Congo. The
migrant caravan from Honduras has been infiltrated by people from Bangladesh, Haiti, Congo and Sri Lanka, according to
embedded reporters. Thousands of military-aged, virile mostly Honduran males breached the Guatemala border gate over
the weekend and stormed the Mexican border bridge; Mexican authorities ultimately let the caravan through. A second
caravan of 2,000 migrants formed on Sunday and started marching to Guatemala with a plan to reach the U.S. as their final
destination. According to a Univision correspondent, Bangladeshis joined the migrant caravan before it crossed from
Guatemala into Mexico.
Gohmert calls for RICO probe to find out who's paying for Honduras migrant caravan. Who's financing the
Honduras migrant caravan of illegal immigrants, with as many as 10,000 snaking their way into illegally entering the U.S.?
Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas has a sensible suggestion for finding out: using the RICO statutes. [...] The question,
which the incurious media show no sign of wanting to answer, is worth asking, given the expense the taxpayers will be saddled
with as thousands of them openly climb over border fences, dare border officials to fire on them to stop them, worm their way
in through asylum legal maneuvering, or put up big sob stories with photos of mothers and crying children as a means to
get in and get the benefit packages.
caravan is a political gift to Trump. Ever since President Trump came down a golden escalator in 2015 to
announce his candidacy, the national conversation surrounding illegal immigration has never been the same. But what is
often missed in his blunt talk and the hysteria it creates is that President Trump understands Americans' desire for law and
order. He also understands their need to feel safe. The recent caravan of thousands of migrants from Central
America who are seeking asylum in the United States underscores that point. While the media focuses solely on the
humanitarian aspect of it, images and video of migrants lawlessly tearing down the gates into Mexico are a stark visual
reminder of the need for increased border security. With only two weeks until Election Day, President Trump should
hammer this point home.
migrants camped out in Chiapas last night and resumed their march today. The huge caravan of migrants, made up
mainly of Hondurans fleeing poverty and violence but also Salvadorans and Guatemalans, set out this morning [10/22/2018] for
Huixtla, a town about 40 kilometers north of Tapachula.
surprise? 5 things that could rock the midterms. [#2] As thousands of migrants continue their trek through
Mexico toward the U.S. border, Trump has threatened to call in the military for reinforcement and slash aid to El Salvador,
Guatemala and Honduras. The confrontation could escalate in the days ahead. Trump has made illegal immigration a
rallying cry for his Republican base throughout the midterm elections, and the thousands of Central Americans traveling
toward the border have become a highly visible example. He's heaped the blame for illegal immigration and the caravan,
specifically, on Democrats. "Every time you see a Caravan, or people illegally coming, or attempting to come, into our
Country illegally, think of and blame the Democrats for not giving us the votes to change our pathetic Immigration Laws!"
Trump tweeted. "Remember the Midterms!"
Trump Announces Aid Cuts to Multiple Countries Over Illegal Caravan. President Trump announced Monday morning
he is starting the process to cut or reduce aid to Central American countries that haven't stopped a caravan of illegal
aliens. Over the past few days, the caravan has grown from 4,000 people to 7,000. Over the weekend, President Trump
again threatened to seal off the border if Central American countries or Mexico couldn't control the flow north. "I would
call in the military and I would seal off the border. I would close up the border. If that happens, and if that
continues to move forward, the caravan we're talking about," Trump said. "I think some bad people started that caravan...
you have some very, very bad people in the caravan. But I will seal off the border before they come into this country."
12,000 Illegals Caught in Last Three Weeks in Rio Grande Valley. Thousands of illegal aliens are swarming the
Texas border this month in advance of the migrant caravan marching through Mexico, prompting Chief Patrol Agent Manuel
Padilla, Jr., the Customs and Border Patrol Sector Chief of the Rio Grande Valley, to beg for help dealing with the onslaught
of illegal aliens, gang members and drug cartel smugglers. Just on Saturday [10/20/2018] over 700 illegal aliens were caught,
with over 12,000 caught in the past three weeks. In addition, safe houses have been busted and drug smugglers intercepted by
the overstretched CBP in the Rio Grande Valley.
Trump Alerts Military: Migrant Caravan Now a National Emergency. President Donald Trump alerted the
military on Monday, as the caravan of migrants crossed into Mexico. "I have alerted Border Patrol and Military that
this is a National Emergy (sic)," Trump wrote on Twitter. "Must change laws!" The president announced the news
after the caravan that originated in Honduras swarmed over the southern Mexico border over the weekend, increasing to 7,000 people.
to 'closely monitor' caravan of migrants headed for US border. Department of Homeland Security Secretary
Kirstjen Nielsen said Sunday that the agency is focused on rooting out potential criminal gang members who may seek to
exploit a so-called "caravan" of Central American migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. "While we closely monitor the
caravan crisis, we must remain mindful of the transnational criminal organizations and other criminals that prey on the
vulnerabilities of those undertaking the irregular migration journey," Nielsen said in a statement. "We shall work with
our partners in the region to investigate and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law all who seek to encourage and profit
from irregular migration," she continued.
Made-To-Order-Migrants, Fake News Played Out Before Our Very Eyes. To see that the 5 to 7 thousand 'migrants'
aren't coming to America for a better life only requires doing the math of the caravan, including its logistics and
supplies. It's a long 1,845 miles from Guatemala to El Paso, Texas for example, where the migrants were seen over the
weekend crossing the border into Mexico. The media wants you to believe that they are walking, having to have their
painfully blistered feet attended to, and not being driven. Averaging 20 miles a day (for the sake of the small
children), they must arrive together, and if they want to arrive together then they have to go at the speed of the slowest
members. Unless that is, they pile children, the elderly and the feeble into trucks and buses so they can be waiting to
rejoin the march when the walkers arrive. From the point of start off, travelling at 20 miles a day, it would take
92 days for them to reach the U.S. border. To make it to the border in time for the Election, they would have to
travel roughly 131 miles a day.
Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Tell Democrats: Ignore Migrant Caravan. Democratic leaders are urging their
party's 2018 candidates to ignore migration issues even as the fast-growing caravan of migrants walks northwards through

last week — and more people are seeking to join the migration.

Buchanan: Migrant Caravan Is Trump's Chance to Stop 'Third World Invasion of the West'. Populist
conservative author and columnist Pat Buchanan says the migrant caravan of more than 4,000 Honduran and Central American
nationals is President Trump's chance to demonstrate that he can stop the "third world invasion of the West." During an
interview with Raymond Arroyo on the Laura Ingraham Show, Buchanan said the migrant caravan headed to the U.S.-Mexico border
is an opportunity for Trump ahead of the 2018 midterm elections to show that he has the willpower to stop mass immigration at
Expert Jessica Vaughan: Four Ways Trump Can Solve Migrant Caravan Crisis. Jessica Vaughan, director of
policy studies at the Center for Immigration Studies, offered four recommendations to President Donald Trump and his
administration on how to solve the border crisis caused by the stream of migrant caravans seeking entry into the U.S. via
Mexico. [...] Vaughan remarked, "But if they come as a group we could shut down a border crossing or shut down a part of the
border. It's been done before in order to shut down drug trafficking and make a statement. When a DEA agent was
killed in Mexico, we shut down the order to make a statement. ... It could be done. ... That might be what it comes to, and
I don't think Mexico wants to see that."
Human Caravan Slowed In Mexico But Still Pushing North. Media reports indicate hundreds among the Soros-funded
'Human Caravan' from Honduras have turned back, fearing they will be arrested by Mexican authorities. That still leaves
an estimated three to five thousand more still pushing north, albeit more slowly now as the Mexican government half-heartedly
attempts to halt the march even as President Donald Trump warns the Mexican government to do more to stop the attempted
invasion into the United States.
Ragged, growing caravan of migrants

Invasion Force Overwhelms Mexican Authorities — Approximately 10,000 Now traveling through Mexico to U.S. Southern
Border. Despite media claims to the contrary, elected Mexican officials previously promised to allow the
invasion of Central American migrants. There is a history here. The heavily financed horde of Central American
migrants has overwhelmed the token resistance from Mexican military and advanced north toward the Southern U.S. border.
As described by the Associated Press today: "growing army of migrants resumes march toward US." This is a well financed,
well organized, left-wing political operation strategically timed to reach the U.S. border and coincide with the 2018 mid-term
election. Estimates as to the number of economic migrants varies between 7,000 to 10,000 and the numbers are growing
fast as they are now facilitated by, and joined by, ideological comrades within Mexico.

As expected the government of Mexico put up token resistance at their southern border (video laughable) and allows thousands

[are] asking non-citizens to vote. The Public Interest Legal Foundation has alerted the Justice Department to a gambit by Texas
Democrats to get non-citizens to vote. The state party sent out a voter registration form asking non-citizens to sign up, with the

kidding. Potable water trucks are somewhere out there. We just need photos.
Liberal Mob Must Be Stopped in November. Democrats are actively encouraging illegal aliens to come to the
country, no matter the damage to Americans. They call it a "caravan," what it really is is a conga line of no-skilled,
non-English speaking people marching up Central America to meet liberal activists at the border waiting to greet them with
open arms and help them skirt our laws in the hope that they'll inspire American Hispanics to vote for them. It's
sick. Even though our economy is booming, and there are more jobs than people looking for work, those jobs aren't for
people illiterate in their native tongue, let alone unable to communicate in our language. But Democrats have embraced
this lie that somehow tens of millions of illegal aliens running up massive unpaid medical bills and whose children cost a
fortune to educate are the key to economic growth.
of caravan migrants take shelter in southern Mexico. Thousands of Central American migrants traveling together
to enter the United States have hunkered down in shelters in a southern Mexico city along its border with Guatemala,
according to local officials.
in Mexico try to stop caravan of Central American migrants determined to reach the US. A caravan of thousands
of footsore Central American migrants who say they are seeking refuge from violence in their countries was moving north
Sunday under the close watch of an army of Mexican federal police in riot gear. Mexican officials said federal police
were staying in front of the caravan, which stretched about two miles and comprised of mostly people from Honduras and
Guatemala, many of whom say they are determined to reach the U.S. border 1,700 miles away.

As long as the mob is headed for the exit, on the U.S. side, I suspect the cops won't do much to slow them down.
swells to 5,000, advances toward U.S.. Despite Mexican efforts to stop them at the border, a growing throng of
Central American migrants resumed their advance toward the U.S. border early Sunday [10/21/2018] in southern Mexico.
Their numbers swelled to about 5,000 overnight and at first light they set out walking toward the Mexican town of Tapachula,
10 abreast in a line stretching approximately a mile.
The Democrats wait with open arms.
caravan migrants wave Honduran flags and burn tires in front of U.S. embassy. Waving the flag of the country
they're desperate not to be sent back to, and burning tires in front of the Tegucigalpa-located embassy of the nation they're
supposedly desperate to live in, the Honduras caravan migrants, their organizers and their supporters don't exactly come off
as big fans of the United States.
Who is feeding the five thousand?
caravan re-forming to resume push north, uncertain if it can reach US. About 2,000 Central American migrants
who avoided Mexican law enforcement at a border bridge and swam or floated across from Guatemala have decided to reconstitute
their mass caravan and continue the push north toward the U.S. Gathered at a park in the border city of Ciudad Hidalgo,
the migrants voted, then marched to the bridge to urge those still there to cross the river and join them, The Associated
Press reported on Saturday night [10/20/2018]. "Let's all walk together!" and "Yes we can!" they cried, defying warnings
to turn back this week from President Trump, who has sought to make immigration, border security and the human caravan from
Central America priority campaign issues ahead of next month's midterm elections.
The Editor says...
Media bias alert: "'Let's all walk together!' and 'Yes we can!' they cried," but I'll bet they weren't "crying" in English.
caravan grabs for American Dream, as immigrants forge unique challenge for US, Mexico. The American Dream is
alive and well ... in Guatemala, where Saturday night [10/20/2018] hundreds of immigrants grew frustrated with the pace of
processing by Mexican officials and swarmed the Suchiate River, swimming, floating and pulling themselves across the muddy
waters to reach the U.S. The river separating Guatemala and Mexico is the primary crossing point for tens of thousands of
Central American immigrants who migrate north each year looking for work and a better life in America. Saturday night,
however, when the sun went down, the river banks came alive, with hundreds of young Honduran men breaching the river to the
chorus of fellow countrymen cheering them when they reached Mexican soil. Police made no attempt to intervene.
for miles, 7,000-strong migrant caravan treks through stifling heat in southern Mexico. A growing caravan of
roughly 7,000 Central American immigrants continued its trek toward the United States on Sunday, blowing past Mexican police
and immigration officials. The group, which has swelled in size in recent days, set out before dawn on the only road
out of the small Mexican border town of Ciudad Hidalgo. It arrived in the afternoon in the city of Tapachula, more than
20 miles away. The migrants, nearly all from the poor and violent nation of Honduras, posed a growing political and
humanitarian calamity for Mexico, which has come under intense pressure from President Trump to stop them.
AP Changes Headline
After Liberals Complain About Describing Illegal Caravan As 'Army Of Migrants'. The Associated Press on Sunday
changed a headline after a backlash from liberals furious at the AP for describing a caravan of illegal immigrants heading
towards the United States as an "army of migrants." "A ragged, growing army of migrants resumes march toward US," read
the original headline on the AP story. The AP later changed the headline to replace the word "army" with "caravan."
Though the AP has used the word "army" to refer to large groups of people besides migrants — including nurses and
political activists — many on the political left criticized the wire service for its original headline.
The Editor says...
When conservatives complain about media bias, nothing changes. When liberals complain, headlines change overnight.
Caravan Approaches, Quit Lying about Immigration. There's no such thing as undocumented immigrants or workers,
as it is sometimes written, unless you mean actual U.S. citizens who have lost or had their IDs (social security cards,
driver's licenses, passports, etc.) stolen. The people being referred to — welcome them or not —
are "illegal aliens," full stop, according to the law of the United States of America. If you don't like that, change
the law. Say you're for open borders. It's an honorable position, or was, even held by some libertarians at the
Wall Street Journal years ago, not that Democrats are keen on being identified with libertarians. But therein
lies one of the Big Lies about immigration: that Democrats, liberals, progressives, whatever they want to call themselves
this week, really want secure borders. It's just the wall that bothers them. Yeah, right. What they want
are votes and everyone, including them if they're faintly honest, knows it. The pretense is they care about the
caravan is an attack on America — Stop the caravan now. The caravan of about 4,000 migrants from
Central America seeking to enter Mexico and then the United States illegally is attempting to invade and attack the U.S.
This assertion will almost certainly be denounced by the usual sources as being hateful or offensive, but it is long past
time we stop letting the left prevent us from using words that clearly communicate reality. The fact is:
Thousands of people have openly stated their intention to break American law and invade our country. Other people, some
of them Americans, are funding this deliberate effort to invade America.
Latest: UN calls on Mexico, US to respect migrants. The U.N. special investigator on the human rights of
migrants has a message for the Mexican and U.S. governments: Respect the human rights of every person on the caravan
heading from Central America and consider each case individually.
media joins the Honduran 'caravan'. The countdown is on for the arrival of what has come to be known as the
"Honduran caravan" — an estimated 4,000 men, women, children and infants who left the troubled Honduran city of
Pedro Sula last weekend on foot and by truck. Saturday [10/20/2018] will mark a week on the march for the throng of
hopefuls who plan to assemble on the U.S.-Mexico border and demand entry. The caravan itself has become a complex
political symbol that some observers say is yet another ploy by rival Democrats and a hostile news media to portray the
president in a negative light as the midterm elections approach.
Migrant Says March to U.S. Border Is for Jobs, Not Asylum. One of the more than 4,000 migrants traveling in a
caravan from Honduras through Mexico and eventually to the U.S.-Mexico border admits that she is seeking a job and a
community more safe from drugs, neither of which would make her eligible for asylum. In an interview with NBC
News, a migrant identified as Karen Aviles from Honduras traveling with the caravan said she was looking to go to the
U.S. to get a job and to provide a safer area for her daughter, whom she said was getting involved in drugs.
are hungry!" Migrants wail at Mexico-Guatemala border. Mexican authorities for a second straight day Saturday
refused mass entry to a caravan of Central American migrants held up at the border with Guatemala, but began accepting small
groups for asylum processing and gave out some 45-day visitor permits that would theoretically allow recipients time to reach
the United States.
Democrats Obstruct Easy Fixes for Border Crisis, Caravan. On Friday [10/19/2018], the caravan broke through
barriers at the Guatemalan side of the border and rushed onto a bridge linking the two countries. Mexican police used
tear gas to stop the migrant column, which then stayed on the bridge during the night. Mexican officials say they will
allow 100 migrants through the barrier to seek asylum in Mexico. Once in Mexico, officials expect most of the migrants
to travel north to the U.S. border alongside thousands of other migrants who are being covertly trafficked into the U.S. by
cartel-connected human smugglers.
paid caravan 'refugees' exposed as frauds by Venezuela's real refugee. To hear the left and its complicit press
tell it, the great 4,000-strong caravan of Hondurans snaking through through Guatemala and Mexico on their way to the U.S. to
claim asylum, are just desperate refugees, traveling in a group to ensure their safety. That was how the New York Times
wrote it up. Well, no. Turns out they're being paid, in money, standing in line for their paychecks.
migrants break Guatemala border fence, rush Mexico. Some migrants are now forming lines on the bridge while
others are sitting down and preparing for a long wait.
Migrants in Caravan Tear Down Border Gate in Guatemala [and] Storm Mexico Border. The bulk of the Honduran
migrant caravan reached the Mexican border late Thursday and hundreds of Mexican police were waiting and ready. Chaos
erupted as the Honduran caravan faced off with Mexican police on the border town of Tecun Uman Thursday [10/18/2018].
The organizer of Pueblo Sin Fronteras, Irineo Mujica was arrested by Mexican police and thrown into a white van.
Caravans Encouraged by Honduras and Soros. Just in time for the midterms, another "spontaneous" migration from
Central America began with a bevy of allegedly oppressed and downtrodden Hondurans leading the way. Pressured by a
threat from President Trump to cut aid to Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador if the caravan is not stopped, some moves by
these governments have been made. Yet evidence exists that these migrations are not spontaneous, with both of the
governments in question encouraging them as a political and economic safety valve and a source of foreign currency, financed
in part by foreign leftists with connections to George Soros. As Fox News's Laura Ingraham noticed in a tweet, this is
not a walk in a national park, but an expensive and arduous journey.
threatens to deploy military, close border over migrant 'caravan'. President Trump threatened to mobilize the military and
even close the border if Mexico fails to stop the thousands of migrants heading toward the United States. "I must, in the strongest
of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught — and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR
SOUTHERN BORDER!," the president announced in a tweet on Thursday [10/18/2018]. In another posting, he continued to blast Democrats
for being weak on immigration and repeated warnings that he would curb aid to the Central American countries that do not halt the caravan.
Caravan Caught Being Paid To March From Honduras To U.S./Mexican Border. And just in time for the Midterm
Elections. You can almost hear the drool dripping from the panting mouths of the Establishment Media as they prepare
their soon-to-be 24/7 coverage of the "human tragedy" that they will allege is the result of Republican immigration
policies. Never mind that if President Trump would be granted the immigration policies he's advocated for no such
caravans would ever occur and in fact, women and children would be far safer for it if some semblance of sanity was restored
on America's southern border. What is taking place in the video below is borderline evil and should not be supported by any
Democrat or Republican — ever.
ex-lawmaker who helped arrange massive migrant caravan to US is detained. A former Honduran lawmaker traveling
with a caravan of migrants heading toward the U.S.-Mexico border was detained by authorities in Guatemala on Tuesday [10/16/2018] as
President Trump threatened to arrest anyone entering the country illegally. Ex-legislator Bartolo Fuentes, who is said
to have organized the march, was detained by Guatemalan authorities after failing to register with migration officials upon
entering the country. Wilmer Simon Gomez and Michael Fajardo were among two others detained from the migrant group.
Honduran Migrant Caravan Attempts to Reach U.S. Border to Coordinate with Mid-Term Election. Last week there were six
unique encounters between President Trump and U.S. journalists where the topic of illegal aliens and family border separations was
brought up. It seemed odd at the time because the issue has not been a topic within discussion. These exchanges
culminated in CBS correspondent Leslie Stahl asking the same question repeatedly during a 60 minutes interview on Sunday night
[10/14/2018]. Now things become clear. There are thousands of Honduran migrants traveling north to the U.S. border
timed to arrive in conjunction with the mid-term election. Obviously an engineered narrative timed by the political left
and media allies.
government begs migrant caravan to turn back. The Honduran government called on 2,000 immigrants Tuesday to
give up their trek north and return home, just hours after President Trump threatened to withhold $65 million in U.S. money
if the country's leaders don't find a way to head off the caravan. Honduras's foreign ministry, in a statement reported
by local news, said the caravan was being politically manipulated in order to make the country look bad, just days after
leaders were in Washington promising better cooperation with the Trump administration. But no matter what happens with
this caravan, security experts say the U.S. is already being flooded with other caravans with hundreds of people on a
near-daily basis, and that shows no signs of stopping.
25 Reasons I'm Not a Democrat.
[#5] Immigration is only good for America under certain conditions. The number of people coming in each year needs to be controlled

migrant group doubles in size, enters Guatemala. Up to 3,000 migrants crossed from Honduras into Guatemala on
Monday on a trek northward, after a standoff with police in riot gear and warnings from Washington that migrants should not
try to enter the United States illegally.
warns Honduras to stop migrant caravan headed for U.S.. President Trump on Tuesday said he warned Honduras to stop a caravan
of more than 1,000 migrants headed for the United States or else lose American aid. "The United States has strongly informed the
President of Honduras that if the large Caravan of people heading to the U.S. is not stopped and brought back to Honduras, no more money
or aid will be given to Honduras, effective immediately!" Mr. Trumptweeted. The caravan of at least 1,600 crossed Monday
[10/15/2018] into Guatemala, chanting "yes we can" as they defied the Guatemalan governments orders to stop.
migrant group grows, heading for United States. A growing group of more than 1,500 Honduran migrants headed for
the United States moved toward the Guatemalan border on Sunday [10/14/2018], witnesses and organizers said.
officials have been keeping migrants from crossing bridges. Now, Mexico is doing the same. [Scroll
down] Earlier this year, U.S. officials started turning migrants away before they could even reach the U.S. side
of the bridge, telling them ports of entry were full. On one bridge, U.S. Customs and Border Protection even erected
a physical structure on the invisible line between the two countries. But after asylum-seekers started camping out
on the Mexican side of the bridges — sometimes sleeping on cardboard for days at a time — Mexican
officials began blocking Central American migrants from entering those bridges at all.
Governor Candidate: Illegals Part Of November 'Blue Wave'. Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate
Stacey Abrams said this week that illegal aliens will be part of the Democratic Party's "blue wave" in the upcoming midterm
elections. Abrams made the remark while campaigning with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) on Tuesday at the Clayton
County campaign office, the Free Beacon reported. "The thing of it is, the blue wave is African American. It is
white. It is Latino. It is Asian-Pacific Islander," Abrams said. "It is made up of those who've been told
that they are not worthy of being here. It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented."
path-to-citizenship program comes under fire. U.S. Customs and Immigration empowers 866 regional centers around
the country to oversee EB-5 investments. Recent years have seen numerous high-profile scandals at the centers.
One in Vermont was shut down this summer over allegations its principals misused over $200 million in a Ponzi-like
scheme. The Securities and Exchange Commission charged a Florida center blew a large chunk of $43.9 million in
EB-5 investments. And last year in California, two fraudsters pled guilty to stealing millions from EB-5 investors and
trying to sell visas to people on China's "100 Most Wanted List."
Candidate For Governor Implies Illegal Immigrants Will Vote For Democrats. Georgia Democratic gubernatorial
candidate Stacey Abrams said the alleged "blue wave" Democrats are expecting in the 2018 midterm elections is filled with
"documented and undocumented" voters. "The thing of it is, the blue wave is African American. It is white.
It is Latino. It is Asian-Pacific Islander," Abrams said at a Clayton County campaign office Tuesday in a video
obtained by The Washington Free Beacon. "It is made up of those who've been told that they are not worthy
of being here. It is comprised of those who are documented and undocumented."
Citizenship for Illegal Aliens Costs Taxpayers $2.4 Billion. Children born to illegal-alien parents cost U.S.
taxpayers $2.4 billion each year according to a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies. The report
concludes that of all births in the U.S. likely paid for by taxpayers, $5.3 billion is spent each year on children born to
illegal alien or immigrant parents. Analyzing government data, CIS says that roughly 1 in every 5 child[ren] born
in the United States has a foreign-born mother, accounting for 791,000 births each year. Of those, an estimated 290,000
children are born to illegal-alien parents each year. CIS estimates that 67% of illegal-alien parents are either uninsured
or have access to Medicaid.
Senator Mazie Hirono is Not Confused, She's Willfully Ignorant. Senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii is all kinds of
confused, poor thing. Yes, she's an elected Washington lawmaker. NO, she apparently knows absolutely nothing about
immigration law. You see, I always figured that Mazie Horono — like most Democrats — was just willfully
ignorant and embraced the liberal "absence of logic" ideology because that's how the left stays in power and that's the level of
voter intelligence they cater to. After observing Ms. Horono's exchange on Capitol Hill with an ICE official last
Tuesday, I now realize the Senator from Hawaii isn't play acting. What I saw was authentic, genuine dumb [...]
Rule Rejects Migrants Who Cannot Speak English. Federal officials will likely reject legal migrants' requests
for visas or green cards if they cannot speak English, says a draft regulation from President Donald Trump's Department of
Homeland Security. "English language proficiency is a skill that also is relevant in determining whether an alien is
likely to become a public charge in the future," says the draft "public charge" regulation. The regulation is intended
to help officials exclude migrants who will likely rely on American taxpayers for their health care, welfare, housing, and wages.
Plurality of Latinos 'Less Likely to Vote' for Candidates Who Want to Abolish ICE. A plurality of Latino voters
are "less likely to vote" for a candidate in the 2018 midterm elections who supports abolishing Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE), according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Telemundo poll. The poll, released on Sunday,
found that 36% of Hispanic voters said they are "less likely to vote" for a candidate who "favors abolishing ICE" while 33%
said they are "more likely to vote." Another 26% said there is "no difference" and 5% said they were "not sure."
study: Illegal immigrant population likely double, possibly triple previous estimates. Professors at Yale
University have roiled the immigration debate with a new study calculating there are between 16 million and 30 million
illegal immigrants in the U.S. — as much as three times more than most demographers figure. The professors'
model looked at estimates of how many people came illegally, and how many people likely left, and concluded there are a lot
more people who arrived than the 11 million suggested by traditional estimates. The model says the most likely figure
is double that, at about 22 million. If true, the numbers would mean U.S. officials have done a poorer job of catching
illegal immigrants than imagined, and that one out of every nine people living in the U.S. is here illegally.
League Study: Illegal Population is 22 Million, Double Establishment Estimate. The population of illegal
migrants is roughly 22 million, or twice the establishment estimate of 11 million, say three professors from Yale University
and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The shocking estimate will force establishment politicians and pro-migration
advocates to recalculate the estimated impact of the huge illegal population on wages and salaries, on crime rates, welfare consumption,
rental and real-estate prices, productivity rates, and the distribution of job-creating investment funds to coastal vs. heartland states.
finds there are over 22million undocumented immigrants in the US — more than double previous estimate. A new
study has found that the number of undocumented immigrants in the United States is more than double what was previously
estimated. Two Yale professors and an instructor at MIT Sloan School of Management conducted the extensive research and
found that there are 22.1 million illegal immigrants in the country. The widely estimated number is thought to be around
11.3 million, but researchers Edward Kaplan, Jonathan Feinstein and Mohammad Fazel-Zarandi claim that is way off.
Be Fooled by Leftist Lies' About the Immigration Explosion. When did our immigration system start functioning
like a charity to benefit third-world countries rather than America? When did it become the case that the interests of
foreigners should take precedent over those of American citizens? It's a peculiar thing. A massive wave of
third-world immigration has been engulfing America for half a century, yet all American citizens hear about from the
"lamestream" media is what a racist, intolerant country we have. As their thinking goes, if we don't openly accept
millions of individuals who have no desire to embrace the language, culture and values that made America the greatest country
in the history of the world, then we must be racists. It's not the elites who have suffered the consequences of
hundreds of thousands of unvetted foreigners flocking to the United States or had their communities transformed, endangered
and eroded by 10 million illegal aliens. It's the average American citizen who bears that burden.
arrested immigrants who came forward to take in undocumented children. Federal officers have arrested dozens of immigrants
who came forward to take care of immigrant children in government custody, and the Trump administration is pledging to go after more.
The news will serve as confirmation of the worst fears of immigrants and their advocates: that a recent move by President Donald Trump's
administration to more fully vet people who come forward to care for undocumented immigrant children who are alone in the US has been a way
for the administration to track down and arrest more undocumented immigrants.
Are We on the Verge
of Civil War? Legal, diverse, meritocratic and measured immigration has always been America's great strength.
Assimilation, integration, and intermarriage within the melting pot used to turn new arrivals into grateful Americans in a
generation or two. But when immigration is often illegal, not diverse and massive, then balkanization follows.
Currently, the country hosts 60 million non-natives — the largest number of immigrants in America's history. Yet
unlike the past, America often does not ask new immigrants to learn English and assimilate as quickly as possible.
Immigration is instead politicized. Newcomers are seen as potentially useful voting blocs. Tribalism is the
new American norm.

US residents are immigrants, 44.5 million, most ever. The percentage of the U.S population that is immigrant
has reached the highest level in 107 years, with nearly one-in-seven being foreign born, according to new data from the

legal and illegal immigrants in the country, the highest ever in U.S. history, with the most from Latin America.
has its highest foreign-born population in over a century. The United States had the highest share of
foreigners living in the country last year since 1910, according to a new analysis of census data. Immigrants
represented 13.7 percent of the population in 2017, up from 13.5 percent in 2015 and the highest percentage since
the 14.7 percent in 1910. Today's immigrants are better educated than their predecessors, and a lot more are Asians,
according to an analysis by the Brookings Institution released Thursday [9/13/2018].
DMV Gives Illegal Voters a Surge. Last week California's Department of Motor Vehicles sent 23,000 "erroneous"
voter registrations to the office of Secretary of State Alex Padilla, who maintains the list of registered voters. The
DMV blamed it technical errors and said none of the erroneous registrations involved undocumented immigrants. Padilla
was "extremely disappointed and deeply frustrated" and the DMV assured him it wouldn't happen again. Legitimate voters
have good reason to believe Padilla was not disappointed but delighted. The odds are strong that illegals make up most
if not all of the newly registered voters. The registrations of illegals will be happening again, in greater numbers,
as the November election approaches. The day after the 23,000 registrations made news, it emerged that from late April
to early August, the DMV registered 182,000 "new voters," with the largest number, 112,000, choosing "no party." Neither
the DMV nor Padilla would explain the numbers but the trend is evident and all by design.
immigrants cited in theft of 39 million Social Security numbers. Nearly 40 million Social Security numbers have
been stolen and used by illegal immigrants and others to get work, according to agency records obtained by an immigration
reform group. The Immigration Reform Law Institute said that from 2012 to 2016 there were "39 million instances where
names and Social Security numbers on W-2 tax forms did not match the corresponding Social Security records." The group
said that there is a "thriving black market" used by illegal immigrants to get Social Security numbers needed to get a job.
Fran Green Lights Illegals To Vote. Our country has twisted itself in knots over the possibility of foreigners
(ie: Russia) having unduly influenced our elections (even though recounts and investigations have confirmed that the
outcome was NOT changed by foreign interference). You'd think that would be reminder enough as to just how precious the
individual value of a lawful voter is, and how it must be safeguarded against anything that would erode the value of that one vote.
Brooks: Likely 15M Illegal Aliens in U.S., Giving Blue States 20 Additional Congressional Seats.
Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) says the counting of illegal aliens when dividing up congressional seats and electoral college
votes is a violation of the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution. Brooks, along with the state of Alabama,
are suing the federal government for their counting of illegal aliens, rather than citizens, in congressional apportionment
and the dividing up of electoral college votes.

Elephant at the Southern Border. Why do the public discussions of immigration overwhelmingly focus on our
Southern border while the influx of almost equal numbers of Asians, Europeans, and Indians goes unnoticed? Why fixate
on Hispanics? The prevailing explanation, at least the one advanced publicly by Donald Trump and his supporters, is
that Hispanic immigrants are disproportionately inclined toward criminality and long-term welfare dependency
vis-à-vis other immigrant groups. The elephant in the room is the low I.Q. of these would-be future
Americans. Specifically, the average I.Q. in central American countries — Honduras 81, El Salvador 81,
Guatemala 79, for example — would assign these migrants and their offspring to the "educable" or mildly retarded
category in schools, unable to master all but the basics (Mexico might be a small exception with an average I.Q. of 88).
up 9 percent in 2018; still below Obama peak years. Immigration arrests and deportations are rising under the
Trump administration, according to the latest statistics released Thursday — though they're still far shy of the
levels during the peak years of President Obama. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement says it has removed more than
191,000 people through the first nine months of the fiscal year, which is 9 percent higher than the same period in 2017.
Those deportations span both people nabbed at the border by Customs and Border Protection, and in the interior of the U.S. by
ICE, where arrests are up 17 percent so far this year. Of the deportees, nearly all either had criminal records
or were defying previous deportation orders.
Deputies Release Rule Closing Obama's 'Flores' Catch-and-Release Loophole. President Donald Trump's deputies
released a draft regulation which will shut the 2015 Flores catch-and-release loophole, and largely end the migration of
unskilled Central American laborers into the United States. The regulation will help Trump fulfill his campaign promise
to block illegal migration because it will allow officials to quietly detain migrant families together while judges assess
their legal claims. Few migrants can win their immigration or asylum claims, so the no-release process will likely
deter many poor migrants — such as Guatemalan David Xol — from paying smugglers to help them seek jobs
in the United States.
raid at Texas company nets more than 100 illegal immigrant arrests, officials say. More than 100 workers were
arrested at a Texas trailer manufacturer Tuesday in a federal immigration raid. The raid targeting Load Trail Trailers
in Sumner netted 160 arrests. It was at least the second immigration raid targeting the business, the last coming in
2014. At the time, the company paid $445,000 fine for hiring illegal immigrants to work in its plant, officials said. A
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement investigation began after a tip the company was knowingly hiring illegal immigrants,
the agency said. All detainees will be interviewed to determine who remains in custody and who gets humanitarian
release, officials said.
Aliens, Including Illegal Aliens, Vote In Our Elections. Back in February of 2017 Time Magazine's Wendy Weiser
And Douglas Keith published "The Actually True and Provable Facts About Non-Citizen Voting," claiming that "Like voter fraud
generally, non-citizen voting is incredibly rare. Simply put, we already know that ineligible non-citizens do not vote
in American elections — including the 2016 election — except at negligible rates." They based
their analysis on state prosecutions of vote fraud, but what they failed to account for was the fact that few states, even
those run by Republicans, conduct the kind of investigations necessary to uncover vote Illegal votingfraud, and even fewer
elected officials want to risk the charges of racism and vote suppression typically hurled at any official conducting such an
Texas Democrats want to decriminalize unauthorized border crossings. A trio of Democrats running for top
offices in Texas want to decriminalize unauthorized border crossings. U.S. Rep. Beto O'Rourke, who's challenging
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz for his Senate seat, gubernatorial candidate Lupe Valdez, and congressional candidate Veronica
Escobar told HuffPost they are in favor of such a move, which the report says would be simpler to implement than abolishing
Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as some Democrats have demanded.
Call for Decriminalizing Border Crossing. Crossing the border illegally should no longer be a criminal matter,
three Texas Democrats running for national office said over the weekend. Senate candidate Rob O'Rourke, gubernatorial
candidate Lupa [sic] Valdez, and House candidate Veronica Escobar all backed the proposal, the Huffington Post reports.
Illegally crossing the border is currently a criminal act under federal law, with an associated fine and maximum of six
months jail time for the first offense. The Trump administration took advantage of this fact in its "zero tolerance"
policy, which required U.S. Attorneys in the border states to charge every violator criminally, rather than waiving
prosecution and immediately deporting.
AG Says Dems' Call to Decriminalize Illegal Entry Could 'Cost Lives'. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said
Sunday on "Fox & Friends" that a push by three Democrats running for office in the state to decriminalize illegal entry could
cost lives. Paxton said that the issue is "a little scary" and that simply advocating for more open borders could draw
more people to cross illegally. "The reality is we already struggle with this," he said. "It's going to cost
lives if we go down this path."
pardons undocumented immigrant ahead of deportation hearing. Gov. Andrew Cuomo issued yet another pardon
to an undocumented immigrant with a criminal conviction ahead of his deportation hearing Tuesday [8/21/2018]. Harveys
Gomez, 39, a Bronx resident and Dominican Republic native, is the latest immigrant to be granted clemency by Cuomo.
Gomez was convicted of criminal sale of a controlled substance nearly a decade ago and has been in the custody of US
Immigration and Customs Enforcement since October, despite having completed probation, according to Cuomo's office.
Cuomo's office says Gomez came to the US when he was 8 years old, is openly gay and HIV-positive, is a survivor of
childhood sex abuse and "has no family in the Dominican Republic who would be able to support him if deported."

This is a pitiful story, but even so, the United States is not a repository for all the down-and-out losers in the world. Those
who are likely to become a public charge are inadmissible.
to Expect if Democrats Win the Midterms. [Scroll down] The deluge of sensational news about families
separated at the border this summer reveals that immigration will be an existential issue for the Democrats going
forward. Native-born Latinos like me will not be a reliable voting bloc for the left, so they will need constant
infusions of Latin American, Asian, and Middle Eastern immigrants. Democrats need them to enter the USA, get
citizenship, and feel indebted to Democrats for at least one or two generations. There is no way a Democratic Congress
will get sworn in without bill after bill trying to institute open borders and an unconditional pathway to citizenship.
More Than 700,000 Overstayed
Visas in 2017. Around 700,000 people overstayed their temporary visas in fiscal year 2017, according to a
recently released estimate from the Department of Homeland Security. Six hundred thousand of these individuals are
suspected to have remained in the country, according to DHS, while the other 100,000 or so simply departed after their visas
expired. The 700,000 count represents a tiny fraction of the nearly 53 million people admitted to the United States
in FY17. However, it is 300,000 more people than the number apprehended trying to illegally cross the southwestern border
for the same year, indicating that visa overstays represent a more serious source of illegal immigration than border crossers.
how Brazil, Ecuador and Peru condemned Arizona over illegal immigration in 2010? Remember how Arizona Governor
Jan Brewer got piled on by 17 Latin American nations in 2010, condemning her state for attempting to enforce federal
immigration law based on the reality that Arizona was being overrun by illegals and the Obama administration was doing
nothing? It was bad enough that the Obama administration sued her state to end the law, something it only did with
partial success. But then Latin states such as Brazil, Colombia, Peru, and Ecuador joined the fun, piously weighing in
to sign on to a highly questionable Friend of the Court brief led by Mexico, condemning Arizona for trying to enforce U.S.
immigration law. Scroll forward to 2018. Now the shoe is on the other tootsie. Because right now, those are
the very nations pulling up the drawbridge to illegals as their own countries get inundated by vast human waves of Venezuelans
flooding over their borders without papers.
come to America if they don't want to be Americans? "They" are preciously called "immigrants," "refugees,"
"migrants," "undocumented Americans," and other pathetic-sounding names tailored to wrench our hearts — we
purportedly cruel, unsympathetic, inhuman Americans. Luxuriating here, behind our walls of wealth, abundance, and
security, we deny them our (stolen) largesse and close up our fat-wracked arms to these noble, sacred, starving,
uneducated, illiterate, diseased, violent, and socialist masses from "third-world," countries.
of Foreign Refugees Can't Speak English After Five Years Living in U.S.. The majority of foreign refugees
arriving in the United States every year cannot speak English, even after they have lived in the U.S. for five years.
An annual report by the Office of Refugee Resettlement was analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies' Jason Richwine and
reveals the extent to which assimilation to life in America has failed for the refugee population. About 58 percent,
or nearly 6-in-10 refugees have "below basic" English skills after living in the U.S. for five years. These unassimilated
refugees are sometimes described as "functionally illiterate." The number of refugees who cannot speak English is far
below the native-born population, where 85 percent of Americans are proficient in English.
Pelosi: Voting for Democrats Gives "Leverage" to Illegal Immigrants. Minority leader Nancy Pelosi told
supporters in El Paso, Texas, a border city on the US-Mexico divide, that Democrats give "leverage" to illegals. What
an amazing admission! And, of course, she conflates legal immigration with illegal immigration.
No Nation. With the huge numbers of people who want to come to the United States — often from Third
World countries — it should be evident to all Americans that to accommodate them under present conditions in this
country would be simply impossible. First, the country is broke and can't afford the welfare they'd receive.
Second, we are at a point in time where "becoming an American" is no longer important to immigrants (it is more important to
retain traditional culture and beliefs), and the country is already riven with dissent as each racial and cultural group
tries to get its government-issued preferences. Third, the country is many hundreds of billions behind in
infrastructure repair, without creating loads of new infrastructure necessary for the influx. And there's more.
Yet Democrats — and globalists in general — are against borders because it's "just not right."
Hollywood is going to strip Trump of his Walk of Fame star for sexual misconduct then when will Spacey and Cosby lose
theirs? My favourite game in this era of increasingly hysterical Trump-bashing fervor is Whataboutery.
It's a game you can play on your own, or with friends, and involves taking shrieking liberal criticism of President
Trump — and applying it to liberal heroes instead. For example, liberals curl themselves into balls of
apoplexy about Trump's draconian tactics to deport illegal immigrants — whilst conveniently overlooking that 'Saint'
Barack Obama threw out more than three MILLION people during his tenure, splitting up many families, and earning himself the
nickname in Mexico of 'Deporter-in-Chief'.
the White House wants to make it harder for LEGAL immigrants to become citizens — if they've ever gotten welfare
or used Obamacare. President Donald Trump's administration is preparing a new proposal that would make it
harder for legal immigrants to become citizens if they've ever gotten a welfare check, availed themselves of food stamps, or
used Obamacare, it emerged Tuesday [8/7/2018]. The plan is the brainchild of White House senior adviser Stephen Miller and
would limit the number of migrants who can become American citizens or obtain green cards, NBC News reported.

is the winning issue. The Harvard-Harris poll affirmed a survey in June that 73 percent of Americans want immigration reform
and 76 percent want secure borders. The 70 percent who want stricter enforcement of immigration laws include 77 percent of
white voters, 53 percent of blacks and, in a mild surprise, 51 percent of Hispanics. Among the respondents to the poll, a strong,
64 percent majority want illegal immigrants to be sent home, and 53 percent want them prosecuted.
ICE melting under pressure from leftists and Democrats? The ongoing assault on U.S. Immigration and Customs
Enforcement is truly unhinged from reality. As one pundit observed of the Left's latest open-borders crusade:
There's more outrage over ICE than ISIS. Data — and the lack of it — tell a far different story
than the screamers in the streets. Just as the Abolish-ICE crowd conveniently glosses over Barack Obama's migrant
detention centers, they ignore the most recently reported deportation numbers. In fiscal year 2017 (which included four
months of the Obama administration), ICE deported 226,119 people, fewer than the previous year's 240,255. In fiscal 2012,
Obama's ICE agents deported 409,849 (still less than 4 percent of the estimated 12 million illegal aliens in this country).
ACLU Won't Rest Until Every Illegal Gets In. After all the wailing about the children streaming across our
wide-open, wall-less border, there was very little media interest in the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday on
this very subject. Knowing facts could interfere with their showboating displays of compassion. Among the facts
journalists might have learned is that, although the Constitution technically gives Congress the power to write laws, it
turns out our immigration laws are written by the ACLU. The children clamoring across our border can't be held for more
than 20 days. This isn't because Congress, after hearings, debate and negotiation, passed a law. The 20-day rule
was the ACLU's innovation.
part of 'illegal' does Sen. Mazie Hirono not understand? Democratic senator Mazie Hirono of Hawaii is
"confused" about why illegals get detained by lawmen. No, really. Apparently, Democrats have skidded so far
downhill that they don't even understand that illegals are here illegally. As the word says. Yesterday's
[7/31/2018] lovely exchange between a lawyerly Immigration and Customs Enforcement official and Hirono was the proof of
it. After the ICE official had to take the time to school her in basic immigration law, all she could respond with was,
"I'm confused." [Video clip]

of Democrats: Illegal Aliens Should be Given the Right to Vote. A majority of Democrat voters now say that
the 12 million illegal aliens currently residing in the United States should be given the right to vote. In a new
poll by Rasmussen Reports, a majority of 54 percent of Democrats said illegal aliens in the U.S. should be given the right
to vote so long as they pay taxes. Illegal aliens paying taxes ensures the identity theft of Americans.
Rules Would Allow Migrating Foreign Population to Fill Half of Midwest. New asylum rules approved by the GOP
majority and Democrat minority House Appropriations Committee would give the right to migrate to the United States to a
foreign population at least half the size of the American Midwest. Two asylum rules pushed by Rep. David Price
(D-NC) as well as Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-KS) and approved by the GOP-majority House Appropriations Committee would allow
foreign nationals seeking refuge in the U.S. to migrate based on claims that they are fleeing domestic abuse or gang violence.
The Editor says...
Great. Everybody's a victim. What if they bring domestic abuse into this country?
What if they bring gang violence into this country?
What if they're only coming here to be freeloaders? Where are
Price and Yoder going to be when it becomes necessary to round up all these "victims" and throw them out?
police arrest anti-ICE protesters who were locked together by the neck. The protest against Immigrations and
Customs Enforcement started 12 days ago with a handful of tents set up in front of Tampa's Department of Homeland Security
office. It reached a crescendo Monday morning [7/30/2018] when six protesters bound themselves in pairs at the neck with
bicycle locks and parked themselves in front of the office's doors. Then the anti-ICE demonstration came to a crunching
end. Authorities broke the bicycle locks and arrested the protesters.

court filing says illegal immigrant families suffered from U.S. food, chill, disease. Illegal immigrant families are
furious at the treatment they received after being detained at the border, complaining of bad burritos, cold soups, being forced to
drink water out of toilets and contagious disease outbreaks that have swept through the facilities. The complaints are detailed
in a massive court filing on behalf of illegal immigrant children that claims the government is breaking its promise to provide
quality care for juveniles who end up in the custody of the Homeland Security Department.

We've been saying the same thing for decades: When you cross the border, don't drink the water.
seen what Open Borders can do. Stop them at any cost! As someone who has seen the impact of open borders
and lack of border enforcement, I can state unequivocally that nothing less than our national integrity is at stake.
Anyone who favors the sort of open border policies that find excuses for individual incursions in the name of some false
human rights claim needs to come on my next mission along India's borders with Nepal and Bangladesh. And I should know
about human rights as I have been placing my personal safety on the line for them since the turn of the century. Anyone
who believes that policies abetting open borders are not a dagger in our national heart should see the damage they caused and
the international conflicts that they enable.
Portland's Occupy ICE Protest Builds Wall, Creates Border Patrol To Keep Out Police. On Wednesday [7/25/2018], The Daily
Wire reported that "Occupy ICE" protesters in Portland had been given eviction notices and were ordered to pack up their belongings
and demonstrate against vague notions of tyranny and oppression elsewhere. But while some indeed cleared out (in a manner of speaking,
at least), others decided to stay and fight, erecting — ironically — a "border wall" to enclose the Occupy ICE
PDX encampment and stationing "border guards" around their tiny independent nation. No, really. The border wall, which is
in fact quite high (perhaps, say, to prevent border jumpers), went up over the weekend.
Times Globalists Claimed Mass Immigration Is Necessary to Increase GDP. For decades, the big business lobby,
ideologically globalist politicians, and economists have claimed that the only route to increasing the United States' Gross
Domestic Product (GDP) is through increasing legal immigration levels. On Friday [7/27/2018], thanks to President
Trump's "America First" economy, GDP soared to 4.1 percent for the second quarter of 2018, outpacing the first quarter,
in which GDP was 2.2 percent.
Airlines Gives FREE Flights To Illegal Aliens Who Crossed US Border. If you want to travel from Houston, TX to

for open borders wind up closing doors for Democrats. Democrats on the far left appear to be taking their
anti-border rhetoric, including calls for the abolishment of ICE, one step too far. Over the past two months,
Democratic National Committee Deputy Chairman and US Representative from Minnesota Keith Ellison has passionately and
persistently advocated his position that national borders — specifically, the U.S. southern border —
create "an injustice." In an interview just last week, Ellison suggested that because corporations "can go back and
forth across the border seeking out the lowest wages," regular people should be able to "go back and forth across the border
seeking out the highest wages."
the Republican Party have the guts necessary to win the midterms? Trump won the nomination and the presidency
on the voters' belief that this guy, at last, was someone who meant what he said on immigration. He, and the Republican
Party, can hold the House and the Senate if they focus the electorate's attention on the Dems' immigration lunacy, and then,
secondarily, on the president's amazing economic results. On immigration, the Dems' agenda has become a smorgasbord of
electoral emetics that only needs to be served up to American voters to produce a collective gag that will be heard round the
ICE Captures 132 Illegal Immigrants,
Including A High-Ranking MS-13 Member, In DC Area Roundup. The Immigration Customs Enforcement Agency
apprehended 132 illegal immigrants in a Washington, D.C., metropolitan area operation that took place over the last two
weeks, according to an ICE statement released on Tuesday [7/24/2018]. The Washington Field Office recently concluded
Operation Eagle's Shield, which went from July 9-20, which targeted "various violent offenders, gang members, sex offenders,
fugitives from justice and those who otherwise pose a significant public safety threat," according to their statement.
[are] Opposed to Illegal Immigrants Voting in Local Elections. San Francisco is allowing non-citizen parents
and guardians of children, including illegal immigrants, to vote in the upcoming school board elections. That doesn't
fly for most voters nationwide, but Democrats are receptive to it. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and
online survey finds that 31% of Likely U.S. Voters favor letting illegal immigrants vote for local officials in the area
where they live. Sixty-two percent (62%) are opposed.
New Idea From Democrats: We Should Be Compensating Illegal Aliens. Now that Democrats have fully embraced
an open border agenda heading into the 2018 midterm elections, they're adding another goody into the mix. According to
New York Democrat Joe Crowley, who just lost his House seat to a 28-year-old socialist, Americans should be compensating
illegal aliens who cross into the United States. "I suggest they need to be compensated for what this administration
did," Donnelly said during the Democrats' weekly news conference Wednesday [7/25/2018]. He was referring to the Trump
administration's zero tolerance border enforcement and prosecution policies.
Massively Expands Enforcement Against Illegals' Employers. The Department of Homeland Security has dramatically
raised worksite enforcement to deter employers from hiring cheap illegal workers. Since October, the agency's Homeland
Security Investigations unit has checked employment records at 6,093 worksites, up from 1,716 in the prior fiscal year from
October 2016 to the end of September 2017. The current pace of checks in 2018 is almost a five-fold increase from the prior
year and included 100 stores in the 7-Eleven chain and 77 companies in California.
more than Tripled its U.S. work place investigations in 2018. The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement
agency more than tripled the number of work site investigations it conducted so far in 2018, according to new federal
data. Since October 1, 2017 — the beginning of fiscal year 2018 — ICE has opened investigations
into 6,093 workplaces, compared to 1,716 in all of fiscal year 2017. The agency also made 984 administrative arrests as
of July 20 of this year, nearly six times the 172 officials made the year prior. Administrative arrests are when
someone is accused of being in the country illegally, but they haven't been charged with any other crimes.
Francisco makes it clear what immigration debate is all about — votes for Democrats. San Francisco
is permitting "undocumented immigrants," as political correctness demands we label them, to register to vote this November in
local school board elections. Who doubts this is the first step by the left and Democrats toward full voting rights in
state and eventually in federal elections? The claim by lawyers will be that it is discriminatory to allow undocumented
immigrants to vote in local and state elections and not for members of Congress and for president. At bottom this is
what the entire immigration debate is about.
Thousand Illegal Immigrants Crossing the Border Every Day. "We're still seeing about 1,000 a day crossing our
border illegally between ports of entry, and another two to three hundred arriving without documents at ports of entry," U.S.
Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Kevin McAleenan told Fox News. I assume he means Mexicans coming into the
United States as opposed to Americans entering Mexico. Because the latter activity is strictly prohibited. The
former, less so.
Basically Admits that Mexico is a [Bad] Country. The editorial board of the Washington Post jumped back into
the fray this week with their own suggestions for what should be done regarding asylum seekers. To their credit, the
WaPo's editors begin by admitting that we do, in fact, have a refugee crisis on our hands. They go one step further,
admitting that the Obama administration was "flummoxed" by the unending flow of families and unaccompanied children trying to
flee Central and South America and enter the United States, particularly in 2014. But they are dismissive of the one solution
being put forward by the Trump administration which might actually make a difference. We've had a "safe third country"
agreement with Canada since 2004. Under that plan, migrants are to apply for asylum in the first "safe" country they
reach. So why can't we have a similar deal with Mexico? Because, at least in the opinion of the Washington Post's
editors, Mexico is too much of a [bad] nation to offer them any safety.
Immigration and Poor Americans. [Peter] Kirsanow is frustrated with what is happening in America today.
He is a black American and believes that illegal immigration has a devastating effect on low-income American citizens.
It seems that the Democrats and left are just using the illegal immigration issue as a talking point, supporting aliens at
others' expense. "We need to understand illegal immigrants have some negative competitive effects on American
workers. They drag down wage rates, drag down employment, and compete directly with blacks in industries such as
service, hospitality, and construction. Welfare and college spots have been taken from Americans and given to illegal
immigrants. They are a net drain on the economy." Steven A. Camarota, director of research for the Center for
Immigration Studies, agrees. "Because the overwhelming share of illegal immigrants residing in the country have not
completed high school or have only a high school education, it would require highly implausible assumptions to avoid a
substantial net fiscal drain from this population. In short, illegal immigrants are a large net fiscal drain because
of their education levels, and this fact drives the results."
Erupts Over Sample Lawn Mowing Company Business Card. A North Texas lawn mowing company has come under fire,
after an old, sample business card resurfaced. The controversial message has angered some people. Jeff Hinkle is
the owner of MowMasters lawn mowing service. He says the card in question was a sample card from three years ago.
Sadly, we now have a substantial force within the Democratic Party who currently advocate and even believe in wide open
borders and illegal immigration. [...] Most rational citizens understand that unfettered and unchecked illegal immigration is
a recipe for disaster. Yet huge factions of the new radical leftist Democrats currently believe illegal immigration is
some kind of noble cause involving social justice. Many within the current party leadership have become all too willing
to completely toss away the former US immigration melting pot model and happily replace it with a new "salad bowl" model.
Reality and history have proven to all of us that a nation simply we cannot safely absorb relentless waves of unassimilated
immigration and expect to survive.
left's 'hippies spitting on troops in airports' act is back: Michelle Wolf demonizes ICE. The always
obnoxious leftwing comedian, Michelle Wolf, is back, this time demonizing ICE agents. She's got a new video on Netflix
that she's spreading around on Twitter. Her target is the people who stop human trafficking rings bringing in underage
girls, and who bust up modern slavery rings. That's ICE doing its job, while Wolf portrays them as baby killers of very
base intentions, grotesque people who are revolted at the sight of happy Mexicans at their wonderful big family celebrations,
as well as criminally inclined and pig-stupid to boot. And of course, it's part of the foolish Democratic party agenda
to "Abolish ICE!"
Blowing Cost of Illegals Is Highest Ever - Numbers Released Show Huge Burden To States. Every American taxpayer
should be outraged at the numbers in the report below. Open borders under 8 years of Obama has cost American taxpayers
a tremendous amount: more than ever before! Don't forget the thousands upon thousands of illegal alien minors who
flooded the border during Obama's presidency. The bottom line is that open borders have consequences and the unfortunate
consequence for taxpayers is we're footing the bill for illegals and THIS IS NOT SUSTAINABLE!
Nerve: Illegal Detainee Complaints Cross The Line. Previous reports about illegal detainees haven't
discussed the topic of food. The detainees must be feeling more entitled to what they want. Complaints of food
not following "religious beliefs" are pretty shocking because these people are just lucky they survived crossing. In
other words, beggars shouldn't be choosers. That might sound harsh but we are keeping thousands and thousands of these
illegals at taxpayer expense. America is over 20 TRILLION dollars in debt so you have to ask yourself how long
we can be the world's babysitter.
Deputy Chair Keith Ellison: National Borders Create 'An Injustice'. Democratic National Committee Deputy
Chair Keith Ellison claimed during a recent interview that national borders creates an "injustice" for illegal aliens trying
to cross them. [...] "The 12 million undocumented people in the United States are here because somebody wants them to
be. They want them to do the work, but they don't want them to get any rights. They don't want to pay them
fairly, they don't want them to be able to bargain collectively, they don't want them to be able to get occupational safety
and standards — and that is what's really going on," Ellison said.
The Editor says...
There are a lot of workers from Mexico and farther south who are coming here to work as roofers, lawn mowers, and ditch diggers.
They've probably never given a thought to "occupational safety," nor would they expect the government to defend them, if they have entered
illegally. Moreover, Mr. Ellison makes it sound as if all 12 million (or more) illegal aliens have come here by invitation.
That is not true. Nobody has invited anyone to break the law, except by virtually guaranteeing (in sanctuary cities) that the laws will
not be enforced.
Left's Embarrassing Plea for Open Borders. [C]onsider how the DREAM Act and then DACA were sold to us on the
lies that this legislative detritus was supposed to help "young immigrants" who were brought here as children and had no
control over their situation. Of course, those "young immigrants" could have been in their mid-thirties and simply had
to claim to have been present in the U.S. prior to their 16th birthdays. Then, when that bill failed to pass, President
Obama cobbled together DACA — again claiming that this was about the children because, "Congress had failed to
act." I wrote about this deception in my article, DACA: The Immigration Trojan Horse, How the original DREAM act was
designed to cover 90% of the illegal alien population in the US. Now the press, and the Democrats along with certain
judges, have gone off the deep end where an estimated 3,000 children have been separated from their parents along the U.S.
Mexican border when they were caught being smuggled into the United States.
Democrats Are Now The Party Of Open Borders. We've been seeing a lot of articles these days defending Democrats
against charges that they are for open borders. But recent events show that the party has, in fact, morphed into one
that reflexively opposes virtually any attempt to secure the southern border.
Guard deployment led to more than 10,000 arrests of illegal immigrants, says CBP. The National Guard's
deployment to the southwest border in mid-April has led to 10,805 "deportable alien arrests" of people who illegally entered
the United States from Mexico, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokeswoman said Monday [7/16/2018]. Because guardsmen
are military personnel and not law enforcement officers, they cannot apprehend illegal immigrants. But CBP officers and
Border Patrol agents apprehended thousands of people that guardsmen helped point out.
vacancy: Feds release illegal immigrant families instead of filling detention centers. The government
pays for thousands of detention beds for illegal immigrant families, but nearly 40 percent of them were sitting unused in
late June, even as the Department of Homeland Security was rushing to release parents and children into communities. The
empty beds were revealed in court documents late last month. Lawyers who monitor U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's
facilities said two major facilities were running well below capacity. ICE's biggest facility in Dilley, Texas, can hold
2,400 parents and children — but on June 27 and 28 it was at just 63 percent capacity, with 886 beds
empty, the detainee logs showed. Although the beds were empty, the government was still paying for them.
The Editor says...
I'm having a hard time finding this to be an objectionable condition. It sounds like the government is prepared to
contain an onslaught of illegal aliens whenever they arrive. If they never arrive, that's a good thing.
On the other hand, the beds are empty because the feds released a bunch of people "into communities," which means the feds are
probably paying some Catholic charity organization to house these same people — just long enough to let them vanish
into some inner city neighborhood. If true, that's the objectionable part of the story.
national gets prison time for faking citizenship, stealing $350G in benefits. Andres Avelino Anduaga, a Mexican
national who impersonated an American citizen for more than 30 years, was sentenced to 37 months in federal prison for
stealing more than $350,000 in government benefits from government agencies, Fox 5 San Diego reported. He was also
reportedly ordered to pay back $360,908.85 in restitution to the Social Security Administration, the California Department of
Health Care Services and the county of San Diego. The report, citing court documents, said in 1980, he used a birth
certificate belonging to a U.S. citizen to obtain a California driver's license and a Social Security card, then used his new
false identity to commit a variety of crimes.
Congressional Hispanic Caucus voted against abolishing ICE. Democrats' push to abolish ICE took a dagger to the
heart Thursday when the Congressional Hispanic Caucus voted against endorsing the policy, saying it wouldn't solve anything.
The CHC comprises nearly 30 Hispanic Democrats in the House and Senate, and it has been a leader on immigrant-rights, so its
opposition is a devastating blow to those pushing the attack on U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. CHC Chair Michelle
Lujan Grisham, New Mexico Democrat, said they want to see major changes in immigration, but renaming an agency or moving functions
around won't achieve that.
Accuse Paul Ryan of Political Stunt for Calling for Vote on Their 'Abolish Ice' Bill. Three Democratic
congressmen declared on Thursday that they will vote "no" on their own legislation if House Speaker Paul Ryan puts their bill
on the floor. Reps. Mark Pocan of Wisconsin, Pramila Jayapal of Washington and Adriano Espaillat of New York
introduced the Establishing a Humane Immigration Enforcement Act earlier Thursday, which would abolish ICE within one year of
enactment, and also assemble a commission tasked with setting up a new immigration enforcement agency. Hours later,
House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy announced he planned to bring the proposed "Abolish ICE" bill to the floor, reported
Black Introduces 'Zero-Tolerance' Bill for Illegal Immigration. On July 10, Rep. Diane Black (R-Tenn.)
introduced the Zero Tolerance for Illegal Entry Act, which would make it a felony to cross the U.S border illegally and would
mandate an E-Verify system for American employers to ensure that they are not hiring illegal immigrants. The law would
make illegally crossing the border for the first time a felony instead of a misdemeanor and would up the penalty from six
months or less to a year and a day or more. The proposed law would also mandate the E-Verify verification system for
U.S. businesses to ensure that the people they hire are not illegal immigrants.
Are Not Immigrants. The Democratic Party, along with its shills in the mainstream media, has misleadingly
blurred the lines between the definition of "immigrant" and "invader." An immigrant is an alien who has been granted the
right to permanently reside in the United States by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. An "invader," as defined
by Merriam Webster, is one who "trespasses, encroaches, and infringes upon another's property." The United States is our
collective home and those who come here without seeking and gaining permission to enter our collective home are no different
than an uninvited guest who enters our personal home to take up residence without permission.
immigrants 'crowding out' US teens for summer jobs. Legal and illegal immigrants are "crowding out" American
teens looking for summer jobs, and the impact of higher teen unemployment could be a drag on them for years, according to a
new analysis of the seasonal workforce. The Center for Immigration Studies found that as the number of U.S. teens with
summer jobs has dropped significantly, employment of immigrants has doubled.
Says People Here Illegally Are Not Entitled to Due Process. People who enter our country illegally do not have
due process rights despite what the left would have us believe. The Supreme Court has already ruled, repeatedly.
Allowing illegal aliens to contest orders of removal is "a mockery to good immigration policy and law and order," the President
said recently. Indeed it is. We have a recent example of that. All of the illegal aliens who came in with
children will be allowed to stay in the country as a result of a ruling by another nobody judge on behalf of illegal aliens.
Court Says Foreign Nationals Have No Due Process Rights Here. Contrary to what the liberal media and
open-borders advocates say, immigrants are not owed same constitutional protections as regular Americans.
answer to family separation: 'Don't come to our country illegally'. President Trump said Tuesday [7/10/2018] that
families should not be coming into the country illegally if they don't want to face the consequences, such as being separated from
each other. "Tell people not to come to our country illegally. That's the solution. Don't come to our country
illegally. Come like other people do, come legally," Trump told reporters while departing for Europe to engage in North
Atlantic Treaty Organization negotiations. Trump told reporters on the White House lawn that he wants to urge people to
stop attacking U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents and workers because "there is nobody under great danger."
Court Says Foreign Nationals Have No Due Process Rights Here. Contrary to what the liberal media and
open-borders advocates say, immigrants are not owed same constitutional protections as regular Americans.
Says People Here Illegally Are Not Entitled to Due Process. People who enter our country illegally do not have
due process rights despite what the left would have us believe. The Supreme Court has already ruled, repeatedly.
Allowing illegal aliens to contest orders of removal is "a mockery to good immigration policy and law and order," the President
said recently. Indeed it is. We have a recent example of that. All of the illegal aliens who came in with
children will be allowed to stay in the country as a result of a ruling by another nobody judge on behalf of illegal aliens.
overwhelming the US asylum system. People hoping to settle in the United States wait years for a green card to
be legal residents. They play by the rules. Yet these law-abiding newcomers must feel like idiots, watching
what's happening on the southern border. Hundreds of thousands of Central American migrants are walking right in.
They're not waiting in line. They're using "asylum" requests as their E-ZPass. Just 12 percent of requests from
El Salvadorans, 11 percent from Guatemalans and 7.5 percent from Hondurans are actually granted, according to the
'Department of Homeland Security. Never mind, the request gets them in the door. It's a shameful distortion of a
program intended to provide a haven for true victims of state-sponsored religious, ethnic and political persecution.

Immigration and the Supreme Court, Democrats Are Snookered. If the new Mexican president, López Obrador,
adheres to his campaign proposal of not interfering with the drug cartels, he will not only be handing his northern provinces
entirely over to the most vicious gangsters in the history of the Americas, he will oblige President Trump to take measures
that will make the protracted debate about the wall, ICE, the immigration chain and lottery, and separation of children
sublimely academic. He will force the United States to secure the border with an adequate deployment of the U.S. Army.
[...] If the new Mexican government abandons the Drug War, it will be the equivalent, in ending debate and uniting opinion in
the U.S., of Pearl Harbor. And if the Democrats take abolition of ICE and de facto open borders to the voters in
November, Trump will mow them down like sitting ducks.
would have let that clown jump': Trump responds to woman who climbed the Statue of Liberty. After appearing in
court on misdemeanor charges Thursday, 44-year-old Therese Okoumou claimed that she had decided to scale the statue's base on
the Fourth of July to protest the Trump administration's policy that has led to the separation of thousands of children from
their families. Hours later at a rally in Great Falls, Montana, Trump told the crowd: 'I would've said: "Let's
get some nets and wait 'til she comes down."'

shuts down Liberty Island in New York after scaling the Statue of Liberty. Members of the public were evacuated
from New York's iconic Liberty Island on Independence Day after a woman scaled the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty,
according to authorities. The woman, who at times could be seen waving what appeared to be a T-shirt, refused to climb
down from her perch at the hem Lady Liberty's robe for about three hours, despite making contact with the joint U.S. Park
Police and NYPD response team.
Migrant Scales Statue of Liberty, Threatens to Push Cops off. A 44-year old leftist named Theresa Okoumou, who
immigrated [LEGAL?] to the U.S., scaled the Statue of Liberty as part of an Abolish ICE 'Rise and Resist' movement. The
Congolese woman threatened to push the rescuers off as they climbed to reach her and rescue her. Over 4500 visitors
were evacuated and couldn't visit the monument. For some, it was probably their one opportunity. The woman was up
there for four hours, sometimes pacing back and forth.

Dark Past of Statue Of Liberty
Protester Discovered. The unhinged Democratic Party is running out of heroes. They have enlisted
disgraced comedian Kathy Griffin, porn star Stormy Daniels, and former junkie Tom Arnold. The newest hero of the
Democrats is a woman who scaled the Statue of Liberty to protest ICE, but now her dark past has been exposed. Therese
Okoumou, 44, is a Congolese immigrant who attends one anti-President Donald Trump meeting per week. She was part of a
"'Rise and Resist" protest on Independence Day that ended with police climbing the statue and risking their lives to save her
from her own ignorance, New York Daily News reported.
The phenomenon on the southern border.
People hoping to settle in the United States wait years for a green card to be legal residents. They play by the
rules. These law-abiding newcomers must feel like idiots, watching what's happening on the southern border.
Hundreds of thousands of Central American migrants are walking right in. They're not waiting in line. They're

Is Not the Common Property of All Mankind. [Scroll down] The populace is roused. For the first time
in a generation, it actually has political leaders trying to act in their interest. That is intolerable to the open
borders crowd, which is reacting with fury and hysteria. Witness the disgraceful Red Guard heckling of Homeland
Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen out of a public restaurant — and the restaurant's management doing nothing
about it. Another restaurant's owner kicked out the president's press secretary. And there is the far more
disgraceful — downright evil — doxing of federal immigration agents by a university professor, to
encourage left-wing brownshirts to harm civil servants and their families.
biggest losers in Mexico's election? The Democrats. Every election has winners and losers, and Mexico's
is no exception. While the press is making much of Mexico's centrist PRI and center-right PAN parties being the big
losers in last night's election of socialist Andrés Manuel López-Obrador in Mexico, the real loser is actually up
north, in the U.S. Democratic Party. Sounds strange until you look at the details. After all the ideological
compatibility between AMLO's new lefty MORENA party and the increasingly socialist U.S. Democrats seems to be
identical. Both favor heavy social spending, forced unionization of workers, political patronage, Chicago-style
political muscle, and fealty to the ideals of the Socialist International. It's what most socialists do until they run
out of Other People's Money. Democrats have staked their future on uneducated, needy illegals forming the base of their
party's fortunes. In Mexico, AMLO has done the same thing. The problem comes because the Mexicans in question are
the same people.
calls to get rid of ICE. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Saturday [6/30/3018] joined calls from the left to
get rid of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), saying it should be replaced with something new. "The president's
deeply immoral actions have made it obvious we need to rebuild our immigration system from top to bottom starting by
replacing ICE with something that reflects our morality and that works," Warren said during a rally in Boston.
Mayor Eric Garcetti Attends Lunatic Abolish ICE Protest, Gets Booed Off Stage. There was a mass demonstration
in Los Angeles Saturday [6/30/2018] for open borders and the dismantling of ICE. Hundreds of leftists and Spanish
speaking immigrants attended the event. [...] As if the exploding crime, massively increasing homelessness and stifling
traffic weren't enough, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is facing a new obstacle to his presidential hopes. First he
was seen at the Los Angeles March For Immigrant Children not reacting at all during an extremist's speech who called the
founding of America "criminal". Then things went from bad to worse when hizzoner was booed off stage by lunatic leftists
who think Garcetti is a lying sellout who's not extreme enough for them. They held up a sign calling Garcetti's
sanctuary city policy a lie and then proceeded to boo him offstage.
ICE' Zealots Occupy Fantasy Island. "No ban. No wall. No borders at all." That is the radical
rallying cry of the Democratic Socialists of America. Waving desecrated U.S. flags, grubby fists and ratty anarchy banners,
DSA's professional protesters are targeting Trump administration officials, threatening immigration enforcement agents, and
blockading detention facilities and processing centers nationwide. On a similar note, Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn.,
proudly marched in a parade last week with a T-shirt emblazoned with "Yo No Creo En Fronteras" — Spanish for "I don't
believe in borders." These are abjectly unserious people, operating in bad faith, who pose a serious threat to our nation's
Senator Calls For ICE To Be Abolished — Forgets What She Said About Illegal Immigrants In 2009.
Democratic Senator and potential 2020 presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand has called for Immigration and Customs
Enforcement to be abolished. The far-left position has gained popularity on the fringes of the Democratic Party as the
immigration debate heats up in the country. Gillibrand joins New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio who said Friday
[6/29/2018] "ICE's time has come and gone. We should abolish ICE. We should create something better, something
different." However, when Gillibrand was just elected to a rather conservative House seat in Upstate New York, she was
singing a different tune on illegal immigration. According to a report by the New York Times from 2009, Gillibrand was
a hawk on immigration, advocating for strict enforcement of our immigration laws.
Chicago and elsewhere, Latinos [are] converting to Islam. There are no precise figures on how many Latino
Muslims live in the Chicago area, where the population is about 30 percent Latino. But, according to various

Trump the Most Fun President Ever? On Tuesday [6/26/2018] the Supreme Court released its opinions in Trump
v. Hawaii and National Institute of Family and Life Advocates v. Becerra. [...] In the first case, the
Court ruled it was within the power of the President to suspend entry of aliens to the United States. Something obvious
from the clear text of the relevant law. The self-styled "wise Latina," Justice Sotomayor made a ridiculous comparison
to the internment of the Japanese-Americans by FDR, which was batted away as the inapt comparison it is. As significant
as the Court's adherence to the text of the relevant law is, Justice Thomas's observation that District Court issuance of
nationwide injunctions (a practice begun in 1963) is based on dubious legal authority. Moreover, Thomas said,
"Nationwide injunctions mean that each of the more than 600 federal district judges in the United States can freeze a law or
regulation throughout the country — regardless of whether the other 599 disagree." As Ben Weingarten details
in the Federalist, he's opening the door to more SCOTUS scrutiny of such injunctions, and a disarming of a regularly used
tool of the Resistance.
Violence and Gun Ownership. The future votes of illegals who will someday attain amnesty is the singular
objective of the present version of the Democratic Party. They have made clear that they will ignore MS-13,
drug-trafficking, human-trafficking, rampant violence, and crime across the country by illegals, if that means that one day
these future Democrats will control the outcomes of elections in every state the Democrats cannot presently rig, and will
provide cheap labor for the Republicans who seem fine with never wielding political power again.
Aliens: The New Black Vote for Democrats. First it was the hilariously viral YouTube sensations "Diamond
& Silk" supporting Trump during his 2016 Presidential campaign. Then, it was Kanye West shocking the world with his
vehement support of President Trump on TMZ Live, touting all the wonderful things that Trump has done for the Black
community. Remember, this is the same guy who said back in 2005 during the Hurricane Katrina catastrophe that President
Bush "doesn't care about Black people." He has now woken up to the Democrat scam and is making an effort to wake his
fellow Blacks up to it. Then there was Candace Owens of Turning Point USA, who has been on an aggressive nationwide
campaign exposing the Democratic Party for what it truly is — A communist, socialist, racist organization that has
presided over the massive unemployment, massive genocide (via abortion), and massive economic slavery (in the form of
family-destroying welfare programs) of poor Black minorities in the U.S. since the 1960s. Then finally, your average
everyday grassroots Black voter has finally woken up to the 50-year Democratic scam.
Blackburn says liberals, liberal judges to blame for US-Mexico border mess. U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn
pointed the finger Tuesday [6/26/2018] at "liberals" and "liberal judges," blaming them for the family separations underway
at the U.S.-Mexico border. "As a mother," the Tennessee Republican said in a statement released by her office, "my
heart breaks for the families who are separated at the border, but we are in this position because liberals would not pay to
enforce our immigration laws or build appropriate facilities for asylum-seekers."
The 'Abolish ICE' Movement
Is As Crazy As It Sounds. The 'Abolish ICE' movement is gaining steam. Activists are protesting in front of
Immigration and Customs Enforcement buildings across the county. The Daily Caller's Stephanie Hamill and Henry Rodgers
crashed the organized protest in Washington D.C. on Wednesday [6/27/2018] to find out why some are calling for the agency to
[be] abolished. They left with more questions than answers. "America Uncensored" is a Daily Caller program dedicated
to political stories dominating the news cycle. The DC's Stephanie Hamill is a straight shooter who isn't afraid to tell
you what she thinks.
Compassion of Open Borders' Leads to Deaths in Texas County, Says Sheriff. A Texas sheriff tasked with
recovering the bodies of illegal immigrants who die while being smuggled around a checkpoint 80 miles from the Mexican border
says the "false compassion" of open borders is to blame. This year, his deputies recovered the decomposing bodies or
skeletal remains of more than 30 who were left to die by their smugglers. "It is the false compassion of open borders
that lead to the deaths of these illegal immigrants and other abuses we find out about," Brooks County Sheriff Benny Martinez
told Breitbart Texas in a phone interview.
Chicago Model: Population Replacement and the Transformation of the USA. The roots of Obama's politics
are to be found in the uni-party politics of Chicago. It has been the aim of the national Democratic Party to use
Chicago as a model and then impose that political model on the United States. The Chicago model requires, first of all,
population replacement. Population replacement leads to voter replacement and then cultural replacement. Once
population replacement is accomplished, voting will eventually reach a point where it becomes irrelevant. After
population replacement, any opposition party to the Democrats can never get enough votes to stop the fundamental transformation
of the United States from a constitutional republic to a socialist democracy. Democrats will always have a guaranteed
majority once population is replaced. Today, uncontrolled immigration and redefining citizenship are the keystone to
unlocking that guaranteed majority.
History of U.S. Border Separation Policy. Who truly is responsible for the 2,000 alien kids who, according to
the Associated Press, recently have been separated from their detained illegal alien parents? There is a lot of blame
to share. That includes President Bill Clinton and the alien parents themselves, as well as the courts and immigration
policies foolishly created by the Obama administration. The perverse incentives in those policies have endangered the
lives and safety of children and helped fund the deadly Mexican drug cartels that run the trafficking networks on our
southern border. You would not know that based on the absurdly biased coverage and virulent protests that have
occurred. The Trump administration is simply doing what it is constitutionally charged with doing —
enforcing the law.
we actually deport immigrants without a trial? The president took an oath to preserve, protect and defend the
Constitution. The Fifth Amendment to the Constitution provides in relevant part that "no person shall be ... deprived
of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law." This is the so-called Due Process Clause, and it essentially
prevents all governments from impairing the life, liberty or property of any human being on American-controlled soil without
a fair trial. Because the Supreme Court has ruled that there are no word choice errors in the Constitution and the
words of its text mean what they say, the Framers must have carefully and intentionally chosen to protect every person, not
just every citizen. "Person," in this context, has been interpreted to mean any human being on American-controlled soil
against whom the American government is proceeding, irrespective of how the person got there.
emerging litmus test: Support for abolishing agency that guards borders. Democratic lawmakers and
candidates are increasingly seeking the elimination of Immigration and Customs Enforcement as part of their suite of demands
in D.C.'s heated border battle. The calls reflect not only the deepening divide between the two partisan poles on
immigration — with one side seeking a border wall, and the other looking to dismantle the lead enforcement
agency — but the growing influence of the progressive wing. More and more Democratic politicians have
embraced such causes as 'Medicare for all' and a federal jobs guarantee. Now, they're getting behind the call to
abolish ICE, with gusto.
on immigration restrictions: A sovereign republic — if you can keep it. Congress and the
president have the full power to deny entry to any non-citizen or class of non-citizens seeking to enter this country for any
reason — good or bad. Those decisions are exclusively up to the political branches of government, to be
debated in the political realm, and there is no opening for the courts to get involved. This principle "has become
about as firmly embedded in the legislative and judicial tissues of our body politic as any aspect of our government," not
"merely" by "a page of history ... but a whole volume" (Galvan v. Press). The concept is "inherent in
sovereignty," consistent with "ancient principles" of international law, and "to be exercised exclusively by the political
branches of government." (Kleindienst v. Mandel).
mad and proud of it. Everybody in the Southern Hemisphere, having turned much of their half of the globe into a
starving slum, is trying to make a getaway to the north. The man expected to be elected president of Mexico later this
summer calls on "les miserables" of the south to migrate north to the United States, declaring it a "human right." "And
soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement — we will defend all the migrants in the American
continent and all the migrants in the world," said Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who is widely expected to be elected president
of Mexico next week. Migrants of the south, he told an interviewer the other day, "must leave their towns and find a
life in the United States."
Max and Nancy Pelosi: The twin faces of the Democratic Party. Trump won the election primarily on his
immigration reform stance. Most Americans are profoundly cognizant of the irreparable damage done to their cities and
small communities by the influx of illegal immigration over the last decades. We want it stopped. We love and
respect our legal immigrants but are sinking under the weight of tens of thousands of illegal migrants.
Black Americans Prefer Deportation Of Illegal Immigrants. It turns out that illegal immigration is not exactly
a winning issue for Democrats among black voters, who overwhelmingly favor deportation over the failed "Catch and Release"
policy that lets illegal immigrants roam free after being detained at the border in hopes they show up to a future court
date. According to a CBS News/YouGov poll, a full 40% of black Americans feel that illegal immigrant families should be
deported back to their country of origin. Compare that to just 20% of black Americans who believe that detained illegal
immigrant families should be released while they await an asylum hearing, for which many do not return. Only 20% of
white Americans agree with "Catch and Release."
Process for Undocumented Immigrants, Explained. A 1996 statute permits immigration authorities to deport people
without a hearing, a lawyer or a right of appeal under certain conditions, a process known as expedited removal. Under
current policy, the Department of Homeland Security criteria for expedited removals apply to undocumented migrants found within
100 miles of the border and within 14 days of entering the country. The statute imposes no geographic limit and
allows for expedited removals up to two years after a migrant has entered the country, raising the possibility that the Trump
administration may use this power more aggressively.
refuse to acknowledge safe borders are necessary. In politics, as in life, lucky is the person with clumsy and
incompetent enemies. By that measure, President Trump is the luckiest man on Earth. As illustrated by the growing
proof of FBI bias against him and the left's incoherent rage over his immigration policies, Trump's political enemies these
days resemble the passenger list on a ship of fools. Consider the expanding revelations of FBI misconduct during the
2016 campaign, especially the text in which top agent Peter Strzok vows that "we'll stop" Trump from becoming president.
ICE!' is the new rallying cry for progressive Democrats. Doing away with the immigration agency has become an
issue left-wing insurgents can use to differentiate themselves from established party rivals in midterm primaries.
The Constitution Provides Sufficient Common Ground To Solve Immigration. In the midst of the recent media
hysteria over immigration policy, it's important to consider that partisan politics loves to dwell in a constant state of
controversy, because this encourages tribalism. Consider TIME's latest cover. It's a complete sham, intentionally
misleading, and its obvious purpose is simply agenda-driven messaging to continue the hysteria. Much like two teams
clashing on a sports field with the loyal fans' emotions stirred into a frenzy and the goal simply to dominate and win, this
kind of politicking isn't framed toward reaching genuine solutions. If our aim is only to win, then we are measuring
the success of our national policy merely by the margin of victory over the other party's ideas — regardless of
whose ideas are actually better — rather than the substantive merit of our law and its consistency with our
Democratic insurgents want to 'abolish ICE.' Democrats aren't
there yet. On Sunday morning [6/24/2018], CNN's Jake Tapper put the question to Sen. Bernie Sanders
(I-Vt.): Did the senator, a democratic socialist and 2016 presidential candidate, the most prominent left-wing politician in
the country, want to abolish ICE? "I think what we need is to create policies which deal with immigration in a rational
way," Sanders said, evading the topic of ICE itself. The stories of undocumented immigrant families being separated
have unified Democrats, with dozens of party leaders and candidates fanning out to attack the Trump administration's border
policy. But the abolition of ICE, which has become a defining issue in some Democratic primaries, has not broken
through to the party's leading figures.
and moral approach to immigration. The latest fad du jour in the media is to brand President Trump a liar for
trying to blame Democrats for the unholy mess along the U.S.-Mexico border. In supposedly straight news stories, the
Washington Post, NPR and others simply termed Trump's claims "false." It's certainly the case that Trump's assertions and
tweets were self-serving and incomplete, not to mention ungrammatical. There was a brazen quality to them, too, given
that his Justice Department precipitated the recent crisis with its "zero tolerance" policy for Central Americans seeking
refugee status in the U.S. But the president's broader point has merit: He considers separating children from their
parents in detention facilities a small piece of a much larger problem, namely a broken immigration process that congressional
Democrats have no interest in addressing. They like the current politics of the situation, Trump says, because it
galvanizes Latino voters — and liberal whites — into supporting the Democratic Party and its candidates.
Preaching Immigration Morality are Acting Unethically. Even Nancy Pelosi should know that government's first
duty is to protect and defend America's existing families. Today, that means seriously checking, at the borders, all
who may possibly be a member of MS-13, a jihadi terrorist, a criminal or drug dealer, or a carrier of infectious diseases,
all of which have already threatened American families. We rely on the government to do this for us.
Mr. Trump and Sessions are not "religious hypocrites," but men living up to their oath and doing their duty of keeping
Americans safe. They are acting as those with responsibility.
[Scroll down] For those who might still think open borders is a great policy, many of whom previously and may still
claim that we need zero population growth to sustain the planet, you might remind them that over fifty percent of the
nation's immigrants are receiving some kind of welfare benefit. Ask them to show you a single country in the history of
the world that long survived open borders and a generous social welfare policy. The E.U., under "Stuck on Stupid"
Merkel's 2015 plan, has tried it, and it may well lead to the end of that grand experiment as members peel away under an
unsustainable welfare burden and burgeoning crime.
Trump Signs Order Keeping Adults With Children, Democrats Demand Open Borders. Yesterday [6/20/2018] President
Trump signed an executive order that allows adults with children to be detained together after crossing into the United
States illegally. "We're signing an executive order. I consider it to be a very important executive order.
It's about keeping families together while at the same time being sure that we have a very powerful, very strong border, and
border security will be equal if not greater than previously," Trump said Monday afternoon at the White House, flanked by DHS
Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. "We're going to have strong, very strong borders, but we're going to keep the families
together. I didn't like the sight or the feeling of families being separated." The move came after outrage over
the separation and detention of adults from children as part of the administration's zero tolerance policy to prosecute all
individuals who enter the country illegally. Adults were being held separately while awaiting a hearing before a judge.
stop managing this invasion and start blocking it. There is one data point that should immediately end the
suicidal process of letting tens of thousands of dangerous people be released into our country: Roughly 80 percent
of asylum applicants from Central America have been rejected outright in recent years by immigration judges, who are
typically more liberal in their views. The number of applicants who truly fit the statutory description of an asylee is
likely infinitesimal, and a very small percentage are ultimately approved. This means that by entertaining enormous
number of asylum applications within our borders, where many applicants who ultimately will not be accepted are nevertheless
released into the population, we are putting Americans at risk with social problems, fiscal drains, strains on the schools,
drugs, and gangs, all for a small number of legitimate asylees.
with La Raza ties reaped $1B housing immigrants, including kids separated from parents. As debate continues
over the Trump administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policy, questions are being asked about a non-profit group that
has collected huge amounts of government money to house and care for thousands of immigrant children being held in the
system. Texas-based Southwest Key Programs has taken in roughly $1 billion in federal contracts since the Obama
administration, and is expected to receive about $500 million this year to house and provide services for immigrant
children, according to reports. And Southwest officials receive significant compensation for their efforts.
Immigration Officials Cooked the Books and Fooled Congress for Years. A recent Justice Department report on
U.S. immigration courts provides a rare glimpse into the difficulties faced by the Trump administration as it repairs the
damages inflicted on these tribunals over the last 20 years. But give credit to the courts' new executive, James
McHenry. Early on, he identified the need for transparency and has made accurate disclosure of court business one of
his agency's highest priorities. Candor, if not reform, demands no less. It's a good start for an executive
whose predecessors often avoided — and sometimes denied — the truth about the courts' troubling
dynamics. Yet the courts limped along, their annual reports masking a systemic dysfunction never shared with
Congress. While transparency won't cure the dysfunction, it should identify obvious areas for reform — among
them failures to appear in court.
Obama Sued By Illegal Immigrant's Family For Wrongful Death In Detention Center. Amid a media-inflamed
firestorm over President Trump's "zero tolerance" illegal immigration policy and an Obama-era Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals
ruling that forces illegal immigrant parents to be temporarily separated from their children, several outlets have provided a
number of unfortunate flashbacks to the Obama administration's jam-packed immigrant detention centers. On Wednesday
[6/20/2018], the Drudge Report provided another one: The tragic case of Roberto Aguilar Batista, 38, whose family sued
President Barack Obama and multiple federal agencies after Batista died from complications of diabetes while being held in
one of the administration's ill-equipped detention centers.
'It's a Human
Right': Mexican Presidential Candidate on Mass Exodus to America. Mexican presidential candidate Andrés
Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) called for mass immigration to the United States during a speech Tuesday declaring it a
"human right" for all North Americans. "And soon, very soon — after the victory of our movement —
we will defend all the migrants in the American continent and all the migrants in the world," Obrador said, adding that
immigrants "must leave their towns and find a life in the United States." He then declared it as "a human right we will
defend," eluniversal.com reports.
man likely to be the next president of Mexico just called for mass migration to the US. To be sure, AMLO
[Andrés Manuel López Obrador] is only saying out loud what every other Mexican president believed in his heart;
that America is Mexico's "social safety net" and that it's up to the US taxpayer to take care of Mexico's unemployable,
destitute millions. Unsaid by AMLO is the implication of a mass migration of Mexicans to the US. The not-so-secret
dream of every Mexican government that illegals flooding into America will eventually allow for a "return" of California and
much of the American southwest to Mexico. What makes this socialist different, however, is his novel argument that
entering the US illegally is actually a "human right."
Immigration and Lax Border Controls are The Epicenter of The UniParty. CTH has tracked this issue so closely
through the years it often feels futile for another reminder. However, with the insufferable political games surfacing,
yet again, over the issue of illegal immigrants and children — perhaps it is worth another visit. Massive
illegal immigration is supported by both sides of the professional political machine. There are few issues more
unifying for the K-Street purchased voices of DC politicians than keeping the borders open and the influx of illegal aliens
as high as possible. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce pays politicians to keep this system in place.
Author Admits She Wants U.S. Borders To Be Like Open European Borders. On Tuesday's episode of "Outnumbered" On
Fox News, Pete Hegseth asked author Cathy Areu to tell him what the "most hated item" among progressives is regarding
immigration policy. During the exchange between Hegseth, Areu, and Townhall's Katie Pavlich, Areu admitted that she
would like United States border policy to mirror that of Europe's.
Border Separation Bill Would Let Nearly All Parents Who Commit Federal Crimes Get Off Scot-Free. Democrats'
proposed legislation to prohibit so-called border separations would actually prevent federal law enforcement agencies almost
anywhere inside the United States from arresting and detaining criminals who are parents having nothing to do with unlawfully
crossing the border and seeking asylum. Every Senate Democrat has now signed on to cosponsor a bill written so
carelessly that it does not distinguish between migrant children at the border and U.S. citizen children already within the
United States. The bill further does not distinguish between federal officers handling the border crisis and federal
law enforcement pursuing the ordinary course of their duties.
The Big Immigration Charade.
If you sought to preserve the violent, reactionary and undemocratic regimes of countries like El Salvador and
Honduras — and, to a great extent, Mexico — into perpetuity, how would you do it? One way would
be by providing a permanent U.S. safety valve for all their poor and downtrodden, the victims. Just as with Europe and
the Middle East, open borders can salve the soul and make us all feel good about ourselves, but they come with a price.
And that price is not just for the richer host countries in supplying costly services. It is even greater for the
countries of origin whose benighted citizens, the stay behinds, are left to suffer under governments that are incompetent,
corrupt and often murderous.
Graham stands behind Homeland Security chief on Mexico border separation policy. South Carolina's two Republican
U.S. senators have staked out their views on the Trump administration's handling of the child and family crisis on the Mexican
border. U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday [6/19/2018] he stands behind Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen
amid growing controversy over separating migrant children from their parents. U.S. Sen. Tim Scott said he disagrees
with the practice now in place.
Dems want illegal immigrants to 'infest our country'. President Trump on Tuesday restated his support for his
administration's policy of separating migrant families at the U.S. border, calling Democrats "the problem." "We must
always arrest people coming into our Country illegally. Of the 12,000 children, 10,000 are being sent by their parents
on a very dangerous trip, and only 2000 are with their parents, many of whom have tried to enter our Country illegally on
numerous occasions," he wrote on Twitter.
Increasingly Use Other People's Children To Claim Asylum. Illegal immigrants are increasingly posing with
children who are not their own in order to try to gain expedited entry to the U.S., multiple sources tell The Daily
Caller. A law enforcement source directly involved in apprehension told The Daily Caller officers are increasingly
encountering "family units" of adult males with children of various ages. When law enforcement attempts to debrief the
adult males with children, they often cannot answer even the most basic questions about their supposed children. The
children also rarely appear to know details of their apparent "fathers."
left is starting to jump the shark on its child migrant 'crisis'. For the left, it's finally springtime.
After months in the political wilderness, followed by the crushed hopes for the great blue wave, leftists are finally getting
a grip on an issue they can pin on President Trump: family separations among detained illegal border-crossers.
They're going wild with this issue, and the press is running stories about it nonstop, complete with crying children to tug
at the heartstrings. But there are signs it's getting to be too much for them, driving them to overplay their
hand. The child migrant crisis they have drummed up, with media cameras shamelessly exploiting the faces of crying
children (they blank out unconsenting children's faces otherwise) separated from their parents, at first glance seems to be
the magic bullet they've been looking for.
Illegal Immigration's $30 Billion 'Hidden Tax'. [Scroll down] Redistribution is bad, elimination is
worse. Therein lies one of illegal immigration's biggest, yet routinely ignored, problems: illegal aliens hop the
border, work (often without paying taxes), and send a large chunk of their earnings back home via remittances.
Basically, remittances are a hidden tax Americans pay for the privilege of hiring artificially cheap illegal labor —
and it adds up. In fact, illegal immigrants may remit around $30 billion annually. To be clear,
it's impossible to know exactly how much money illegal immigrants remit annually. There are three reasons for this.
First, we don't know how many illegal immigrants actually reside in America. Second, the term remittance itself is
ambiguous: should we include money stuffed in a birthday card in our calculations? Third, we cannot track the
location of every dollar even if we wanted to (if we could, black markets wouldn't exist).
Trump: Democrats Want More Illegal Immigrants as 'Potential Voters'. President Donald Trump again
criticized Democrats Tuesday of allowing the crisis at the Southern border, accusing them of wanting to increase levels of
illegal immigration for political reasons. "Democrats are the problem," Trump wrote on Twitter. "They can't win
on their terrible policies, so they view them as potential voters!" Trump again cited crime numbers in Germany, saying
that the rates were up 10 percent since accepting a large influx of migrants into their populations.
On Illegal Immigration Is A National Disaster. When emotionalism meets scaremongering, it's difficult to have a
useful debate about anything. Yet for immigration, those seem to be the two choices. The Trump administration has
adopted a "zero tolerance" policy requiring law enforcement to prosecute illegal immigrants. Yes, the policy comports
with the letter of the law. Yes, the Obama administration engaged in a similar policy on a smaller scale —
and yes, the media covered it very differently. But, no, President Trump doesn't "have to" temporarily break up
families. He chooses to do so, claiming, among other things, that it is a necessity in stopping gang violence.
Trump officials' inability to deal with the mess they created incompetently implementing their policy, and the public
relations disaster resulting from that ineptitude, is on the administration, and no one else.
says he won't allow US to become a 'migrant camp'. President Donald Trump defended his strict immigration
policy that is resulting in the separation of children from their parents at the border, declaring that he won't allow the
United States to become a "migrant camp." "The United States will not be a migrant camp, and it will not be a refugee
holding facility," he said during a meeting of the National Space Council at the White House on Monday [6/18/2018]. "You
look at what's happening in Europe and other places, we can't allow that to happen to the United States. Not on my watch."
Martin Luther King
Jr.'s Own Speechwriter Claims He'd Vehemently Opposed Illegal Immigration. Today, we're going to look at what
MLK may have said about illegal immigration to hopefully resolve this squabble. And what better person for that than
Clarence B. Jones, a former lawyer, close advisor, and speechwriter for the civil rights icon? Here are some top quotes
about illegal immigration from Jones book, 'What Would Martin Say,' regarding what he thinks MLK would have to say about the
matter of illegal immigration.
Truths Liberals Will Never Acknowledge About Illegal Immigration. [#1] Any sort of legalization or amnesty
encourages more illegal aliens to come here. During the Reagan administration, we had a "one-time" amnesty that featured
promises of security in return for three million illegals getting to become citizens. Today, most estimates seem to put
the number of illegals in the United States somewhere between 11-12.5 million. In other words, seeing that we weren't
serious about enforcing our immigration laws led to more illegals than ever coming here in hopes of getting amnesty. If
this amnesty goes through, we can expect to see the exact same problem repeated in a few decades.
babies from their mothers is immoral': Catholic leaders denounce Trump's zero-tolerance border protection policy. Leaders of the
Catholic church are criticizing the Trump administration over its border protection policy, saying that separating mothers who illegally come
into the US from their children is 'immoral'. Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, the president of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops, called out
president Donald Trump and his 'zero-tolerance' policy on Wednesday [6/13/2018] during the the group's spring conference.
launches office looking for Americans who cheated to get their citizenship. The U.S. government agency that
oversees immigration applications is launching an office that will focus on identifying Americans who are suspected of
cheating to get their citizenship and seek to strip them of it.
You illegal aliens need to stop breaching our border. Canada was busy welcoming leaders from around the world
to the G-7 summit this weekend and, aside from the United States president, everyone seemed to receive the standard, polite
greeting from their Canadian hosts. But there are some other foreigners who aren't getting such a warm reception
anymore. Those would be the illegal aliens pouring over the border into the Great White North now that U.S. immigration
forces have been cracking down. Despite Canada's legendary niceness and previous offer to take in the huddled masses
fleeing from President Trump, that attitude is quickly changing.
Sessions: Victims of domestic abuse and gang violence generally
won't qualify for asylum. Attorney General Jeff Sessions signaled Monday that victims of domestic abuse and
gang violence generally will not qualify for asylum under federal law, a decision that advocates say will affect tens of
thousands of foreign nationals seeking safe harbor in the United States. Sessions' ruling overturned a 2016 decision by
the Justice Department's Board of Immigration Appeals that said a abused woman from El Salvador was eligible for asylum under
federal law. The administrative appeals court is normally the highest authority in the issue, but the attorney general
has the power to assign cases to himself and set precedents.
Americans, Swing Voters in Battleground Districts: Immigration Has Made Life 'Worse'. The majority of
white Americans and swing voters in 2018 swing districts say that change has made life "worse" in the U.S. In the latest
CBS News/YouGov poll, nearly 60 percent of white likely voters who see changes in their neighborhood from mass immigration
said that immigration made their community "worse." Only 15 percent of these voters said immigration has made American
life "better." These likely voters live in swing districts which could be swayed towards either the Republicans or Democrats
in the 2018 midterm elections.
Remarks On The Economy Aren't Grounded In Reality. [Democrats are] now fighting the same losing battles with Trump,
like defending trashing the American flag and the national anthem, with the most recent giving cover to MS-13 gang members as folks...
who aren't so bad. Sorry, no — they're garbage human beings who are thugs, rapists, and murderers, devoid of any
humanity. They deserve to be treated as such. Lock 'em up and throw away the key. Dehumanization of a
cancerous and dangerous criminal element in our society is not a bad thing; it's a necessity.
An Army Base Ordered Pizza.
Then Guards Called ICE on the Delivery Man. An Ecuadorean restaurant worker making a delivery to an Army
garrison in Brooklyn wound up being detained June 1 after a routine background check at the gate revealed there
was a warrant for his arrest for immigration law violations, officials said.
The Editor says...
The Associated Press must have intended this to be an immigration sob story. I think it's hilarious.
Next stop: Galapagos Islands!
Chamber of Commerce demands amnesty for 1 million migrants. The country's largest business lobby pleaded with
Congress this week to grant legal status to a million illegal immigrants, saying the job market is so hot that the country
couldn't stomach losing them if they are asked to leave. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce also rejected proposals to cut
future immigration levels, saying they "would be devastating to our economy." Neil L. Bradley, a longtime GOP
staffer on Capitol Hill who is now executive vice president at the chamber, sent a letter to lawmakers who have kick-started
a new debate in the House on broad immigration reforms.
lawless, porn-respecting, MS-13-loving, humorless American left. [The Democrats] defend aliens' illegal entry into the United States
and give them sanctuary even after they have committed violent crimes that have taken the lives of innocent American citizens. [...] As for Nancy
Pelosi's defense of the "spark of divinity" within the members of MS-13, those drug-dealing, sex-trafficking, machete-wielding murderers, she was
not alone among her tribe of Democrats. There is no miscreant, no matter how vile and murderous, whom they will decline to vindicate, to
endorse. They encourage them to come here and welcome them when they get here. They are much more protective of them than they are
the native-born and legal immigrants on whom they prey. They plan to see to it that they all vote — for Democrats, of course. For
their votes, they will be provided health care, food stamps, welfare... full subsidization on the American taxpayer's dime in sanctuary cities,
where they are free to deal their drugs and terrorize their fellow immigrants who are scared to death of them. That pretty much sums up
the Democratic Party today.
sending 1,600 immigration detainees to federal prisons. U.S. authorities are transferring into federal prisons
about 1,600 Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detainees, officials told Reuters on Thursday [6/7/2018], in the first large-scale
use of federal prisons to hold detainees amid a Trump administration crackdown on people entering the country illegally.
King Sounds Alarm: The Establishment is Stampeding GOP Towards Amnesty Cliff. The House GOP leadership
will push a new amnesty bill today that does not set upper limits on an amnesty or even cut migration levels but which does
exclude reforms found in Rep. Bob Goodlatte's immigration reform bill, sources tell Breitbart News. In November,
if House Speaker Paul Ryan gets his way, most GOP legislators "will be on record in support of amnesty," Iowa Rep. Steve
King told Breitbart News. "It is not going to help us in November" if there is a vote in the House on amnesty, King said.
Secy. Zinke orders park police and rangers to Mexico border. Calling the border with Mexico an "environmental
disaster," Interior Secy. Ryan Zinke has ordered both U.S. park rangers and park police to Arizona and New Mexico to help
stop the movement of illegal immigrants into the country. He said two parks on the border — Organ Pipe Cactus
National Monument in Arizona and Amistad National Recreation Area in Texas — have become strewn with garbage and needles.
Are Scrambling As November Approaches. Our flawed immigration system is one of the most pressing problems
facing our nation today. The flood of illegals continuing to pour across our borders poses threats to our national
security and brings an epidemic of crime, drugs, disease and countless other problems while border agencies are limited in
their response. Then-candidate Trump promised to build a wall to thwart illegal immigration and demanded legislative
action to stem the flood of illegals. House Speaker Paul Ryan and fellow leftwing Republicans, along with Senate
Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, have done nothing.
Patrol union president: Trump putting troops on border is a 'colossal waste of resources'. The president
of the labor union representing Border Patrol agents criticized President Trump's move to deploy the National Guard to the
U.S.-Mexico border, calling it a "colossal waste of resources." Brandon Judd, the president of the National Border
Patrol Council, said the union has "seen no benefit" from the deployment of about 1,600 troops so far, according to the Los
Angeles Times on Thursday. Judd said he originally supported the move because past deployments have been helpful to the
Border Patrol, but that this time, "that has not happened at all." "When I found out the National Guard was going to be on
the border, I was extremely excited," he said.
Guard deployment led to 4,116 apprehensions, not a 'colossal waste of resources'. Department of Homeland
Security officials lambasted the president of a Border Patrol union for calling President Trump's border deployment of the
National Guard a "colossal waste of resources." As of Friday, National Guard troops assisted U.S. Customs and Border
Protection officers and Border Patrol agents in apprehending 4,116 illegal immigrants, turning back 1,182 people, and seizing
3,486 pounds of marijuana since April 15, according to new DHS data first obtained by the Washington Examiner.
Yet National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd, who originally supported Trump's April 4 executive order, said Friday
[5/25/2018] he has "seen no benefit" to the project.
to cancel Obama-era foreign investor immigration program. The Trump administration moved Friday to officially
revoke an Obama-era program designed to entice foreign entrepreneurs to move to the U.S. to invest their cash in businesses
here, saying the previous administration overstepped its powers. The revocation, if it becomes final, would be yet
another blow to President Obama's attempts to rewrite the immigration system by executive fiat — a policy that
also included the DACA deportation amnesty for illegal immigrant "Dreamers," a broader prohibition on deportations of most
illegal immigrants, and new programs to allow more people to enter legally.
red tape stalls border agents trying to fill drug-smuggler tunnels. Environmental red tape is causing "long
delays" for border agents as they try to fill tunnels used to smuggle people and dangerous drugs into the U.S. from Mexico,
according to border officials and Republican lawmakers who have discussed the problem with agents. Frustrated agents
complain the lengthy federal review process can stall critical tunnel-plugging efforts for months after passageways are first
discovered. The tunnels are being used to move people, illegal drugs and even fake pharmaceuticals. But regulations
stemming from laws like the Endangered Species Act, the National Environmental Policy Act and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act
are putting "remediation" on hold.
to cut foreign aid for home countries of illegal immigrants. President Trump announced Wednesday [5/23/2018] that the U.S.
will begin to deduct foreign aid from countries whose residents illegally enter the United States. "Many of these countries we give
tremendous amounts of aid to. Tens of millions of dollars. And we're working on a plan to deduct a lot of the aid," Trump
said at an event in New York denouncing the Salvadoran gang MS-13. "We're going to work out something where every time someone
comes in from a certain country, we're going to deduct a rather large amount of money from what we give them in aid, if we give
them aid at all," Trump said. "We may just not give them aid at all."
Immigration Crackdown Opening Construction Jobs for Women. President Trump's tightened labor market through
increased enforcement of immigration is forcing home builders to recruit American women, rather than relying on cheap,
illegal alien workers. A new report by MarketWatch reveals how the tightened labor market is securing construction jobs
and opportunities for women who would otherwise have been passed on in favor of cheaper foreign laborers.
NC fire that killed 5 children exposes more concerns with US refugee program. Did you hear the news about the
five children from the DR Congo who died in an apartment fire in Greensboro, North Carolina just over a week ago?
Probably not because stories showing the unhappy side of refugee resettlement are rarely seen outside the immediate locale.
Imported More than 10M Immigrants in Last Decade, Exceeding the Population of NYC. Since 2008, the U.S. has
admitted and permanently resettled close to 10.8 million legal immigrants, a foreign population that exceeds the entire
population of New York City, New York — where more than 8 million residents live. Of those roughly 10.8 million
legal immigrants resettled across the U.S., the majority derives from the process known as "chain migration," where newly naturalized
citizens are allowed to bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country.
Outside the Defensible
Perimeter. Five years ago, my husband and I bought a house in the emptiest county in America. [...] If you climb
the mountains behind our house and look south, you look into Mexico. If you climb those mountains to the top, you are
on one of the major drug trafficking routes into America. If you stay in the desert at the foot of the mountains, you
are in rattlesnake country — the greatest biodiversity of rattlers in America, and the night path of illegal aliens.
It is not even a secret that the 60 miles between the border and Interstate 10 are treated as a no man's land.
We live and vote and pay taxes in America, but the government acts as if we are beyond the defensible perimeter of the country.
Sessions ends Obama-era 'de facto' court amnesty for illegal immigrants. Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a directive
to immigration judges Thursday [5/17/2018] telling them they can no longer shunt deportation cases off onto permanent wait lists and
leave illegal immigrants free to roam the U.S. Known as administrative closure, the wait list had become a favorite tactic of the
Obama administration, serving to protect low-priority illegal immigrants from deportation. Rather than pursue those cases, government
attorneys would propose — and judges would grant — administrative closure by shipping more than 200,000 cases to the
suspension list in what analysts said became a de facto amnesty.
Border Ranchers Live in fear as Illegal Immigration Worsens. More than half a million illegal immigrants of
several dozen nationalities have been apprehended on John Ladd's sprawling cattle ranch in southeastern Arizona. Ladd
has also found 14 dead bodies on his 16,500-acre farm, which has been in his family for well over a century and sits between
the Mexican border and historic State Route 92. The property shares a 10½-mile border with Mexico, making it a
popular route for human and drug smugglers evading a meager force of Border Patrol agents in the mountainous region.
"As big as that number sounds, many more got away," said National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd of the
hundreds of thousands arrested on Ladd's parcel. Judd spent a chunk of his decades-long career with the agency
patrolling the area and he knows it well. "It's gotten more violent. It's gotten worse."
More Refugees Than the Population of Philadelphia. From Fiscal Year 2008 to Fiscal Year 2017, the United States
gave Lawful Permanent Resident status to 1,761,927 on humanitarian grounds, which is larger than the population of
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, according to a press release from the White House. The White House mentioned on Thursday
[5/17/2018] the variety of programs and laws that provide for the refugees to gain such status in the United States.
Left Can't Handle The Truth On Illegal Immigration. During an interview with John Burnett of NPR, White House
chief of staff John Kelly said the following about illegal immigrants: ["]The vast majority of the
people that move illegally into the United States are not bad people. They're not criminals. They're not MS-13.
Some of them are not. But they're also not people that would easily assimilate into the United States into our modern
society. They're overwhelmingly rural people in the countries they come from — fourth, fifth, sixth grade
educations are kind of the norm. They don't speak English, obviously that's a big thing. They don't speak
English. They don't integrate well, they don't have skills. They're not bad people. They're coming here
for a reason. And I sympathize with the reason. But the laws are the laws. But a big name of the game is
deterrence.["] Leftist outlets immediately labeled these comments racist. But factually supported statements
about the educational attainment, language skill, and success assimilating of illegal immigrants do not indicate racism.
authorities struggle with ICE over bringing detainees to court. Some immigrants living in the country illegally
and accused of crimes sit in legal limbo, caught in a tug of a war between local prosecutors and federal immigration
authorities who won't let them appear in court because they fear being denied the opportunity to deport them.
Kelly: Illegal immigrants don't have skills, can't 'integrate' well into modern US society. White House
chief of staff John Kelly said in an interview set to air Saturday that the majority of people who enter the U.S. illegally
do not "assimilate" easily into modern American society. "The vast majority of the people that move illegally into the
United States are not bad people ... but they're also not people that would easily assimilate into the United States into our
modern society," Kelly told NPR. WH Chief of Staff John Kelly, asked about separating migrant families at the border,
tells @NPR, "They don't integrate well. They don't have skills."
Upset That License Plate Readers Are Used To Find Illegal Aliens. The battle of public safety and law
enforcement versus privacy concerns isn't going away any time soon. Much of the debate these days revolves around
increasingly affordable and available technology allowing the use of publicly mounted (or drone-based) cameras which can
record both automobile license plate numbers and even human faces. Scanners and facial recognition software can
interpret this data and assist law enforcement agencies in locating suspects more quickly and accurately. But this has
some people highly upset.
U.S. cements plans to separate
families crossing border illegally. The Trump administration will increase criminal prosecutions of parents
entering the United States illegally and place their children in protective custody, stepping up efforts to tighten
immigration enforcement, U.S. officials said on Monday [5/7/2018].
bells for Illegal immigrants at U.S. courthouse. The Moakley federal courthouse is being turned into a wedding
chapel for illegal immigrant criminals desperately trying to avoid deportation from the promised land of EBT cards, Section 8
housing, Mass Health cards and Obamaphones. Last week in a U.S. District courtroom, an illegal immigrant unlicensed
alleged drunk driver was married to his "fiancee," who happens to be the mother of his 21-month-old anchor baby in, where
Circus at the Border': Malkin Rips 'Questionable' Asylum Claims From Migrant Caravan. CRTV host Michelle Malkin
ripped what she called "questionable" asylum claims by immigrants within the caravan that arrived at the U.S.-Mexico border
last week. The final group of migrants that arrived in Tijuana, Mexico, has crossed into California. "This was a
concerted effort to make a circus at the border," Malkin said on "Fox & Friends." Malkin explained that most of the
migrants traveling in the caravan were offered asylum in Mexico but refused.
to send 57,000 Honduran TPS recipients back home. The Trump administration will require 57,000 Honduran people
to return to their home country, after having lived in the U.S. with protected status since a 1999 hurricane, according to a
report Friday morning. The administration will give Hondurans 12 to 18 months to return home, according to
McClatchy. Hondurans are the second-largest national group of people who benefit from TPS. A DHS spokesperson told
the Washington Examiner that Sec. Kirstjen Nielsen "has not yet made a decision." But a decision is due by July 6
and the government has yet to formally announce the reported policy change.
Chamber of Commerce Spending $300K Against 'America First' Christina Hagan in Ohio Race. The pro-amnesty for
illegal aliens U.S. Chamber of Commerce is spending $300,000 in Ohio's 16th Congressional District race against populist
conservative State Rep. Christina Hagan, who has committed to supporting President Trump's "America First" agenda on
immigration, trade, and foreign policy. Hagan — endorsed by the National Rifle Association (NRA), "Women For
Trump," and the anti-establishment House Freedom Caucus — is facing a tight race against Anthony Gonzalez, a
former San Francisco resident who is raking in the cash from the Republican establishment, as well as the pro-amnesty Chamber
judge: Backlog of illegal immigration court cases over 1 million, delayed deportations 684,000. The
backlog of court cases addressing the status of illegal immigrant's has reached over one million, prompting Justice and
immigration courts to step up efforts to hire more judges, digitize old paper systems and speed up court proceedings.
James McHenry, the director of the Executive Office for Immigration Review, which handles immigration cases, said Tuesday [5/1/2018]
that the backlog of active cases is over 692,000 and that the courts have an additional 330,000 cases that have been put into
"administrative closure," but that are still before the courts.
Suit Against the Feds On Immigration Battle. Governor Cuomo of New York is threatening to sue the federal Immigration
and Customs Enforcement agency to stop its ongoing raids to detain illegal immigrants wanted for serious crimes like assault and
rape. A staggering 80% of those apprehended in recent ICE raids in New York were either convicted criminals or charged with
crimes. But Mr. Cuomo is siding with criminals over their victims. He's playing politics. Faced with a
challenge on his left flank from Cynthia Nixon, he's desperate to prove his liberal bona fides.
American 'caravan' women and children enter U.S., defying Trump. Eight women and children from a caravan of
hundreds of Central American migrants have sought asylum in the United States after officials allowed them entry from Mexico,
fueling hope among their companions who remain camped outside the border crossing.
11 possible caravan members with illegally entering the US. The Department of Justice on Monday filed
complaints against 11 individuals believed to be members of the Central American migrant caravan, accusing them of illegally
entering the United States. After a month-long journey by bus, train and on foot, about 100 migrants arrived at the San
Ysidro port of entry on the US-Mexico border on Sunday evening, preparing to claim asylum. Twenty to 30 migrants spent
Sunday night in front of the turnstiles leading to the US side of the San Ysidro port of entry in Tijuana, Mexico. An
organizer of the caravan said they would remain at the immigration processing center until "every last one is admitted into
the United States."
arrives, Honduran flags flying, middle fingers flashing. After a big buildup, the migrant caravan full of Central America's
finest has finally arrived, and as screengrabs from local television broadcasts show, they gave America the bird. Seriously.
Buried in a News 8 broadcast from San Diego was footage of illegal migrants and their supporters on the U.S. side breaching the U.S.
fence on the border, waving a big Honduran flag, victory-style, and whipping out a big middle finger at America.
Say They Will Overwhelm Our System, Destroy Our Borders. Hundreds of leftists are on both sides of the border
supporting the soon-to-be illegal aliens who are climbing the fence dividing Tijuana, Mexico from Friendship, California.
Lines of leftists are also on the U.S. side, waiting to greet them. So far, it is more of a stunt promoting the foreigners
who are lying and gaming the system to get into the U.S. seeking jobs or welfare or both. Many of the jobs they do get
hired for are off the books so they don't pay taxes, get welfare, and they send the money they make back to their home
countries. There are whole towns being supported by Mexicans working illegally in the U.S. These illegal
foreigners are people who violate our laws. This is what many politicians want for our country.
Erupts As "Caravan" Of Illegals Scales US Border Fence, Cheering "Gracias Mexico". Scores of migrants gathered
at the U.S. border began scaling the San Diego "wall" while shouting "Gracias, México!" presumably to thank the Mexican
government for allowing them to travel from Central America to the U.S. border in the hopes of obtaining asylum from the
Trump administration. [Video clip]
Border Officers Limit Caravan Asylum Requests. United States border officers are limiting asylum applications
from the Honduran migrant caravan to a few dozen people per day, so helping avoid a rush of migrants that would trigger
"catch and release" policies.
Officials Vow Tough Response If 'Caravan' Migrants Overrun Border. More migrants from the caravan gathering on
the Mexican side of the southern border are now planning a mass-application for asylum. Hundreds of migrants gathered
at border checkpoints in the Mexican border city of Tijuana Sunday [4/29/2018].
Border Crossing at Capacity, Migrant Caravan Must Wait. Less than 200 Central Americans, part of a caravan of
asylum seekers that traveled through Mexico to the border with San Diego, left a cross-border rally Sunday afternoon
[4/29/2018], prepared to turn themselves in to U.S. authorities.
Mexican Police Escort 'Migrant Caravan' to Border for Crossing Attempt. Mexican police officers reportedly
escorted the remnants of the once 1,200-person "migrant caravan" from shelters in Tijuana, Mexico, to the San Ysidro,
California, port of entry. Hundreds of mostly Central American migrants plan to cross the border within the next few
hours while others contemplate staying in Mexico. Some have already illegally crossed the border into southern
California. Mexican police officers could be seen in a CBS News video escorting buses of Central American migrants
from the shelters where they spent the past few days to the country's northern border with California.
to tell Democrat politicians are racist #5: Immigration. For a long time Black unemployment has been much
higher than white unemployment especially for teens and young adults. While this is in part due to the poor education
that Democrats ensure Blacks get it's hard to believe that it isn't also due in part to the massive influx of low skilled
illegal immigrants who compete with Blacks for jobs. Because illegals are paid under the table they're a lot cheaper
than Black Americans. Yet Democrats keep supporting massive illegal immigration.
caravan of 600 people arrives at the US border. Members of the human caravan that has traveled through Mexico
to the American border have started climbing the 18-foot high fence that separates the two countries as they prepare to turn
themselves over to US authorities to seek asylum. More than a dozen asylum seekers climbed the fence separating San
Diego and Tijuana under the watchful eyes of US Border Patrol agents on Sunday [4/29/2018] as people rallied on both
sides. Hundreds of Central American migrants arrived at the US border on Sunday packed into five old school buses to
rally before a planned mass attempt to apply for asylum in America.
They Come! Thousands of Illegal Aliens And We Can't Stop Them. As thousands of illegal aliens prepare to
enter the USA illegally, free lawyers tell them how they can manipulate the system and our laws. It's a free-for-all as
economic migrants, prepared to take advantage of our freebies and jobs are calling themselves refugees. This is not
simply one caravan. There are thousands of illegal aliens coming into our country shortly and we can't do a thing about
it. This goes on constantly. Congress will do nothing.
Will Mass 'Migrant' Crossing Not Be an Unprovoked Foreign Attack? "Migrant 'caravan' at U.S.-Mexico border
prepares for mass crossing," Reuters reported Thursday. "Hundreds of Central American migrants from a caravan that
crossed Mexico reunited in Tijuana on Wednesday and planned to cross the border together this weekend in defiance of threats
by U.S. President Donald Trump to repel them." If allowed to happen, the criminal invasion — and ultimately
that's what it is — will be a direct result of a chain of circumstances aided and abetted by the Mexican government
in violation of its own laws. Mexican law requires foreign nationals be in their country legally and that their presence
be beneficial. It is a criminal offense there to aid and abet illegal immigration.
Annual Cost of Detaining Illegal Alien Exceeds Average American Income. The federal government paid a "bed
rate" of $127.82 per day to house each illegal alien detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement in fiscal 2016,
