States Work Behind Scenes to Give Illegal Aliens Benefits

Buried in 844-Page Immigration Bill: Immediate U.S. Entry for Millions

Buried deep in the colossal immigration bill that’s floating around Congress is an obscure little section that rewrites the current immigrant visa waiting list to allow millions to cut in front of the line via new categories of family-sponsored immigrants. As if it weren’t bad enough that the measure, known…


Media Self-Censorship: Ban “Illegal Immigrant”

12 Years after 9/11 Immigration Plan Offers Security Measures

Could this be a joke?

Obama DHS Lets ACLU Block Another Deportation

It appears that the leftwing American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) continues to call the shots at the Obama Department of Homeland Security (DHS), this month blocking the deportation of yet another illegal immigrant on the verge of being removed.

Military Radar Shows Mexican Border Is Not Secure

While the Obama administration insists the Mexican border is secure, a sophisticated airborne radar system created to track Islamic terrorists shows that less than half of the migrants and smugglers crossing into the United States get caught. This alarming security gap obviously means that the southern border is far from…


Mexican, U.S. Media Too Scared To Cover Border Crime

Violence along the southern border has gotten so out of control that both Mexican and American journalists have stopped reporting it out of fear that drug cartels will retaliate against them and their families.  This means Americans will be kept in the dark about the crisis along the porous and…


Influx of Illegal Aliens Arrested At Border Expect “Quick Release”

Word of the Obama administration releasing “waves” of illegal immigrants from detention centers around the U.S. spread throughout Mexico, leading to an influx of migrants turning themselves in to Border Patrol with the expectation that they too would be let go. The illegal border crossers are surrendering in large numbers…


Illegal Alien Who Killed Nun Was on Obama’s Supervised Release

The deadly results of President Obama’s “supervised release” program for illegal immigrants were exposed long ago by a Judicial Watch investigation of a Bolivian national (Carlos Martinelly-Montano) who killed a Virginia nun in a drunk-driving accident. A Homeland Security report obtained in the course of JW’s probe details policies and…


U.S. Releases “Waves” of Illegal Immigrants from Custody

Sanctuary Policies Aid Gang-Run Prostitution Rings in DC

In yet another example of sanctuary policies enabling criminals, the area surrounding the nation’s capital is infested with juvenile sex-trafficking operations run by illegal alien gangs that benefit from don’t-ask-don’t tell immigration policies practiced by area police.   For years violent street gangs, especially the MS-13 or Mara Salvatrucha, have…


ICE: Open Border Groups Dictate U.S. Immigration Enforcement

$125 Mil in “Improper” Medicare Payments for Illegals, Prisoners

Lack of timely communication between federal agencies has cost the U.S. government as much as $125 million for medical care that isn’t even supposed to be provided to illegal immigrants and incarcerated criminals. It’s yet another case of government incompetency that’s like a swift kick in the stomach during a…


State Study: Licensing Illegal Aliens Can Reduce Fatal Crashes

While a handful of states have indicated they’d like to give illegal immigrants driver’s licenses—and some already have—one has come up with a rather creative way to justify it; by publishing a study that says it will actually reduce fatal accidents.  Even for California, which has a number of illegal…


Colorado Pushes Illegal Alien Discount Tuition Law

Colorado lawmakers are more determined than ever to pass legislation that will give illegal immigrants discounted tuition at all of the state’s public colleges and universities, essentially forcing taxpayers to subsidize their education.

Court Says Kidnapping Not Serious Enough to Warrant Deportation

In what may seem like a bad joke, a U.S. federal appellate court has spared an illegal immigrant convicted of kidnapping from deportation ruling that it’s not necessarily a crime of moral turpitude.

Obama Gives Illegal Aliens Happy New Year

It will be a very happy new year for illegal immigrants thanks to several Obama initiatives, including the cancellation of an effective federal-local immigration enforcement program, slashing the number of deportations and the extension of a controversial hurricane amnesty.
