    Democrats must address the 'gut issue' of immigration

    Re: “Trump, lawmakers trade fire in escalating war of words”: In responding to President Donald Trump's truly un-American idea that people who don't agree with him should leave the country, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez made this statement: “I want to tell children across this country … that no matter what the president says, this country belongs to you, and it belongs to everyone.” No, this country does not belong to everyone. It belongs to its citizens. And given how our president has been tearing the country apart, our next presidential election should be a setup for the Democratic Party to win. But unless it wakes up and creates some kind of sensible policy regarding illegal immigration,

    Sen. King: Trump, Like Obama, Is Moving to Enforce Immigration Law

    (CNSNews.com) – When it comes to the Constitution and illegal immigration, Sen. Angus King (I-Me.) said President Donald Trump, like President Barack Obama, is moving “to enforce” immigration law. He stressed, however, that law enforcement can use discretion in cases of deportation. At the U.S. Capitol on Thursday, CNSNews.com asked Sen. King, “Article 2, Section 3 of the Constitution says the president 'shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.' Does the president have a constitutional duty to enforce the immigration laws? If yes, should the president deport immigrants who are in the United States illegally?” Sen. King said,  “Well the prosecutor of any -- the people that are charged

    Trump boasts 19 out of 22 MS-13 gangsters arrested in Los Angeles this week were 'illegal aliens'

    Donald Trump lauded Immigration and Custom Enforcement for arresting almost two dozen MS-13 gang members in Los Angeles as part of a two year investigation, adding that the majority of those captured were in the country illegally. Of the 22 MS-13 gang members captured this week, 19 were found to be illegal immigrants. 'Most of the MS-13 Gang members indicted & arrested in L.A. were illegal aliens, 19 of 22,' Trump tweeted Thursday. 'They are said to have killed many people in the most brutal fashion. They should never have been allowed in our Country for so long, 10 years.' A spokesperson for the U.S. attorney's office confirmed to the Los Angeles Times that 19 of the 22 suspects arrested entered

    Sea-Watch captain says hopes for change in EU migrant rules

    The German captain of a charity rescue ship, under investigation for aiding illegal immigration, said on Thursday she hoped the new EU Commission would work to let boat migrants enter Europe unhindered. Carola Rackete, who piloted the Sea-Watch 3 into port on the Italian island of Lampedusa last month with 41 migrants aboard, has denied any wrongdoing. Speaking to reporters after being questioned by magistrates on the incident, Rackete said she was glad to have the chance to explain her decision to enter port after spending two weeks in international waters waiting in vain for permission to dock.

    Undocumented immigrant arrested while jet skiing in Ohio

    PORT CLINTON, Ohio — An undocumented immigrant was arrested while fishing on a jet ski in Lake Erie on Tuesday. Authorities said the jet ski appeared to be anchored with two people fishing. No state registration number visible on the watercraft. When approached, the people on the jet ski told an Air and Marine Operations (AMOP) and a Border Patrols agent that they were from Mexico and did not have immigration documents. AMOP transported the two back to shore and handed them off to Border Patrol agents. Border Patrol then took the pair to the United States Border Patrol Sandusky Bay Station for further identification. “During the summer months Lake Erie is one of the busiest boating communities

    India aims to expel all illegal migrants, interior minister says

    NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India will identify and deport illegal immigrants from across the country, the interior minister said on Wednesday, stepping up a campaign that critics say could stoke religious tension and further alienate minority Muslims. An exercise to identify alien immigrants from Muslim-majority Bangladesh has been going on in the northeastern state of Assam for years, but Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu nationalist-led government has taken it up in earnest. The campaign was a key issue in this year's general election, won by Prime Minister Narendra Modi's Hindu-nationalist party. Home Minister Amit Shah told parliament the government would not limit its efforts to Assam, but

    Dems insist 'no one is above the law' — except illegal immigrants

    We have heard a lot about the importance of the rule of law from Democrats lately. “No one is above the law, especially the president of the United States,” declared House Speaker Nancy Pelosi amid the special-counsel probe. “No one is above the law. Not even the president,” echoed Sen. Elizabeth Warren. “Everyone should be held accountable. And the president is not above the law,” said Sen. Kamala Harris. Republicans “are basically saying that in America one man is above the law, and that's not a fact,” said Senate Minority Whip Richard Durbin. “No one is above the law, [and] everybody ought to be held accountable,” said South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg. No one, that is, except illegal

    Will deport illegal aliens from every inch of our soil: Amit Shah

    NEW DELHI: Home minister Amit Shah on Wednesday asserted that "illegal immigrants and intruders" living on even an inch of Indian soil would be identified and deported and that this was not an issue that concerned only Assam where the National Register of Citizens is being readied. The BJP president was speaking in the Rajya Sabha in response to a supplementary question on the NRC raised during question hour. Samajwadi Party MP Javed Ali Khan had asked the home minister whether the government planned to extend the NRC exercise currently underway in Assam to the rest of the country. "NRC in Assam is one part of the Assam Accord but everyone in the House must have heard the address by President

    US police kill man attacking immigration prison

    A man armed with a rifle threw incendiary devices at an immigration jail in Washington state early Saturday morning, then was found dead after four police officers arrived and opened fire, authorities said. The Tacoma Police Department said the officers responded at about 4 a.m. to the privately run Tacoma Northwest Detention Center, a U.S. Department of Homeland Security detention facility that holds migrants pending deportation proceedings. The detention center has also held immigration-seeking parents separated from their children under President Donald Trump's "zero tolerance" policy, an effort meant to deter illegal immigration. The shooting took place about six hours after a peaceful rally

    Dems Won't Curb Illegal Immigration, But They Plan to Pass a Resolution Condemning Trump

    (CNSNews.com) - House Democrats refuse to pass legislation that might slow the overwhelming tide of illegal immigration at the nation's Southwest border, but this week they will find time to vote on a resolution formally condemning President Donald Trump for his "xenophobic tweets." Democrats are seizing the political advantage Trump handed them on Sunday, when he tweeted that "progressive" Democrat congresswomen who criticize the U.S. should "go back and help fix the totally broken and crime-infested places from which they came." Three of the four far-left freshman lawmakers were born in the United States. The tweets renewed the liberal argument that President Trump is a "racist," a word that
