    A man booked on suspicion of murder - after he allegedly killed a woman in North Hills while fleeing the scene of another car crash - had been removed from the United States to Mexico five times between 1998 and 2011, according to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Estuardo Alvardo, 45, was arrested Sunday afternoon after the fatal crash at Sepulveda and Plummer Streets and was being held in lieu of $1,050,00 bail, according to jail records. Prosecutors were expected to consider filing charges Wednesday. The LAPD said Alvarado was initially involved in a minor wreck at Lassen St....

    Whittier Police Chief Jeff Piper has blamed Gov. Jerry Brown’s controversial early prison release program for the murder of one of his officers on Monday. Officer Keith Boyer, 53, was shot dead when he and his partner, Patrick Hazell, responded to a traffic accident in a tony suburb of Los Angeles known as Whittier’s Friendly Hills on Monday morning. At an emotional news conference later that day, Piper laid the blame squarely on AB 109, which Gov. Brown signed into law in 2011. “We need to wake up. Enough is enough,” Piper said. “This is a senseless, senseless tragedy that...

    U.S. Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D-N.Y.) says he came to the United States illegally as a nine-year-old child, eventually returning to the Dominican Republic with his family to follow proper immigration procedures. He is the first member of Congress to have once been an illegal alien, and he told CNN on Wednesday morning that he objects to the Trump administration’s expanded immigration enforcement because it “unleashes the hound dogs,” expedites the removal of illegal aliens and fractures families. He noted that “many people come here” illegally because they aspire for their children to eventually become Americans. […] Espaillat said many of...

    As the Trump administration expands its deportation policy, Chicago Public Schools told its principals that they should not let any agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement into schools without a criminal warrant. “To be very clear, CPS does not provide assistance to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in the enforcement of federal civil immigration law,” chief education officer Janice Jackson wrote. The district also distributed palm cards in English and Spanish from the National Immigrant Justice Center containing such legal advice as not opening doors to immigration officials.

    In Orange County, California, dozens of immigrants have signed powers of attorney authorizing relatives and friends to pick up their children from school and access their bank accounts to pay their bills in the event they are arrested by immigration agents. In Philadelphia, immigrants are carrying around wallet-size "Know Your Rights" guides in Spanish and English that explain what to do if they're rounded up. And in New York, 23-year-old Zuleima Dominguez and other members of her Mexican family are careful about answering the door, and get worried and start making phone calls when someone doesn't come home on time.

    The city should stop making arrests for minor offenses like fare beating to avoid setting more people up for deportation, a city lawmaker and legal aid groups said Tuesday. Under President Trump’s new hardline immigration policies, an undocumented immigrant becomes a priority for deportation if charged with any criminal offense. And people who get arrested have their fingerprints sent to the feds. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agents have even been waiting outside Manhattan misdemeanor arraignment courts in recent days to nab people after their court appearances, according to New York County Defender Services

    The Department of Homeland Security Tuesday began rolling out President Donald Trump's plans to aggressively crack down on illegal immigrants. The plan, outlined in two DHS memos, includes an attempt to deport almost all illegal immigrants caught in the U.S., hire thousands more border patrol and immigration agents, and start building the promised wall along the Mexican border. ~~snip~~ The memos were sent to heads of key agencies and signed by DHS Secretary John Kelly. Kelly said in one memo that it "implements new policies designed to stem illegal immigration and facilitate the detection, apprehension, detention, and removal of aliens...

    RUSH: No surprises here in the Trump administration’s outline of its plan to crack down on undocumented illegal immigrants. “The Department of Homeland Security [today officially] laid out the Trump administration’s plans for aggressive enforcement of immigration laws, including a potentially massive expansion of the number of people detained and deported.” As I say, there are no surprises here. This is exactly what Trump said he was gonna do during the campaign. There’s gonna be panic galore, but it’s nothing that Trump did not telegraph. He said he was gonna do it. And, by the way, this has been in...

    A gang member who was recently freed from jail killed his cousin and stole his car Monday then shot and killed a California police officer and wounded his partner before being wounded himself, authorities said. Whittier Officer Keith Lane Boyer died and Officer Patrick Hazel was wounded when they answered a report of a traffic accident in the eastern Los Angeles County suburb. A motorist pointed out the location of the car that had rear-ended his vehicle, and the officers approached the driver. "When they get him out of the car, they go to pat him down for weapons, they...

    Grown-ups back in charge Cue the left-wing cries of “racism, roundups, and jack-boot-thuggery” because President Trump has decided it’s time to start enforcing the law again. He promised increased immigration enforcement on the campaign trail, and now Department of Homeland security chief John F. Kelly has made it official. While the DACA will remain in effect, other Obama-era orders have been rescinded, the pool of deportable-illegals has expanded, and law enforcement is being un-shackled.

    It depends on how one defines “keep.” Donald Trump argued against Barack Obama’s unilateral actions on immigration, including the DAPA and expanded DACA programs, both of which got put into limbo by federal courts. When asked in last week’s press conference about DACA and the so-called “dreamers” — children brought into the country illegally by their parents — Trump replied that his immigration policy would show “great heart” in those cases. Today, CBS reports that Trump’s new immigration policy keeps DACA in place. Or perhaps better put, it doesn’t explicitly eliminate it: A source with knowledge of DHS planning said...

    "When they get him out of the car, they go to pat him down for weapons, they can see he's got tattoos all over his face and all over his neck," Corina said. The man then pulled a semi-automatic handgun and opened fire at the officers, who were wearing bulletproof vests and shot back, Corina said. Boyer, a 25-year police veteran, was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Hazel and the alleged gunman were hospitalized in stable condition, Corina said.

    A group of chief executive officers are praising House Republicans' proposed border-adjustment tax as the debate escalates. Border adjustability, which would subject imports to U.S. tax and exempt exports "is consistent with the tax policies of nearly every other country in the world, and it would effectively end the 'Made in America' tax that creates an unfair advantage for foreign-based companies at the expense of U.S. jobs and economic growth," the CEOs wrote in a letter to congressional leaders Tuesday. Sixteen business leaders signed the letter, including the CEOs of Boeing, GE, McIlhenny Company, Pfizer and S&P Global. The chief...

Looks like less mouths to feed today. Have fun while you still can. So glad to hear about massive deportation....
