Obama Judge: Mexican Border Fence May Have “Disparate Impact” on Minorities


City Invests $18 Mil to Help Illegal Aliens Get Jobs

New York City is making headlines—and angering many—for becoming the nation’s first municipality to spend millions of taxpayer dollars to help illegal immigrants get jobs and learn English. How generous of the Big Apple! Under the plan the city will become the first in the U.S. to invest $18 million…


Rise in Illegal Immigration Overwhelms Local Police

While the Obama administration insists that illegal border crossings are at the lowest level in decades, local law enforcement agencies in municipalities near the Mexican border remain overwhelmed with the impact that illegal immigration continues to have on their force. Not that we necessarily believe the administration’s seemingly distorted claims…


Mexico: Securing Border Violates Human Rights

The U.S. proposal to secure the southern border has caused outrage in Mexico, with one renowned Mexican academic claiming in Spanish-language media that deploying more federal agents to the region is tantamount to an increase in “human rights violations.” Under the immigration reform bill floating around in the U.S. Senate…


MADD Silent on Amnesty Law That Rewards Drunk Drivers

As preposterous as it may seem, illegal immigrants with drunk-driving, domestic violence, aggravated assault and child abuse convictions will qualify for amnesty under the immigration bill pending in the U.S. Senate unless an amendment introduced by a Texas lawmaker is adopted. Incredibly, groups that would normally be vocal on these…


Alienation of “Vulnerable Immigrant Students” Blamed for Teen Suicides

Most mainstream media coverage is overtly pro illegal immigrant but one major newspaper has taken it a huge step further, suggesting in a lengthy piece that a public school’s “ethnic integration problem” is responsible for the suicide of three Hispanic students. The story involves the small and upscale New York…


State Sued for “Unconstitutionally” Denying Illegal Alien License

Emboldened by President Obama’s amnesty venture and no doubt the nation’s robust open borders movement, an illegal immigrant is suing the state she lives in for “unconstitutionally” denying her a driver’s license. This seems to indicate that a new, bolder, more confident and demanding class of illegal alien has surfaced…


Licenses for Illegal Immigrants in Yet Another State

In what appears to be a nationwide trend to give illegal immigrants state benefits, Nevada has become the fourth this month alone to pass a measure allowing them to get driver’s licenses. Earlier in the month Oregon, Maryland and Colorado approved laws to allow illegal aliens to obtain driver’s licenses.…


Court Upholds Ariz. Law Denying “Dreamers” Licenses

In a much-needed victory for immigration enforcement, a federal court has ruled in favor of an order issued months ago by Arizona’s governor banning illegal aliens from getting a driver’s license in the state. Arizona Governor Jan Brewer created the policy last August to help counter the Obama administration’s stealth…


Illegal Alien Rapes Baltimore Girl 1 Year after City Becomes Sanctuary

A year after Baltimore’s mayor signed an order officially converting the city into a sanctuary for illegal immigrants, federal authorities announce the arrest of an undocumented Ecuadorian national “wanted for the brutal rape of a 9-year-old girl.” It marks the latest in a series of heartbreaking examples involving an illegal…


States Work Behind Scenes to Give Illegal Aliens Benefits

As the national debate over immigration reform gets more and more heated, some states are working behind the scenes to give illegal aliens benefits that are supposed to be banned under federal law. This month alone two states—Oregon and Maryland—passed measures that allow illegal immigrants to obtain driver’s licenses and…


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”

A few weeks after one of the world’s largest news organizations banned the term “illegal immigrants,” one of the biggest and most renowned papers in the U.S. is following the lead by encouraging reporters and editors to “consider alternatives when appropriate.” It’s political correctness on steroids, actions by the powerful…


12 Years after 9/11 Immigration Plan Offers Security Measures

Could this be a joke? Nearly 12 years after 9/11 the senate’s brilliant immigration proposal promises to finally secure the border, implement a system to crack down on expired visas and a mandatory employment verification program nationwide…in five years!   If it wasn’t so scary it would certainly be funny.…


DHS Watchdog Indicted for Covering Up Illegal Alien, Drug Smuggling

In a case that’s rocked the beleaguered Department of Homeland Security (DHS), two officials assigned to crackdown on corruption at the agency have been indicted for ordering the falsification of records—including active criminal probes—to obstruct an investigation into crooked federal agents. The case comes out of Texas and it is…


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. We saw a similar situation a few years ago when the…


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

Never one to let a crisis go to waste, President Obama is using impending budget cuts to justify releasing “waves” of illegal immigrants from detention centers throughout the country.   Groups of illegal aliens have been freed this week from facilities in Texas, Florida and Louisiana, according to a mainstream…
