    Uber may be assisting in illegal immigration, some Mexican officials claim. Arnulfo Leon Campos of Mexico’s National Institute of Migration said that transporters of undocumented immigrants are using the private ride-sharing service to cross border points without being detected. “Traffickers of people going to the United States diversify their operations and now use private vehicle services like Uber to transport undocumented people,” he said. The statements were made last week after four Uber cars were stopped in the state of Zacatecas on their way to Durango. Cases like these have become more common, officials said, as it becomes increasingly complicated...

    One of the little-told stories of the 2016 election was Donald Trump’s 28 percent take of the Hispanic vote, besting Mitt Romney’s 2012 showing. We on Team Trump won’t throw parades for winning less than one-third of the Latino vote nationally, but lessened enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton among Hispanics represents a key reason, perhaps the primary reason, she was ultimately uncompetitive in Florida. Why did Latino support for Trump massively outperform expectations? For one thing, millions of Hispanics rejected the relentless mainstream media narrative that Trump is an anti-Mexican racist. In addition, only U.S. citizens can vote, and according to...

    The winning is too much! We are taking our country back. And we have the right guy in charge to do so. While we have admitted some refugees so far that could potentially be dangerous, President Trump has stuck to his promises in enforcing the law and bringing common sense immigration back. And there’s more good news to come. Trump is asking Congress for new immigration policies that would prohibit new immigrants from going on welfare during their first five years in the country during a speech in Cedar Rapids, Iowa last Wednesday. “The time has come for new immigration...

    A black female Trump supporter eviscerated Democrat Congresswoman Maxine Waters, saying her pro-illegal immigration policies have destroyed the black community. The brouhaha erupted outside a town hall meeting in California on Saturday. She trashed Waters, 78, as a “black racist” whose rhetoric and actions have caused African-American citizens to lose jobs to illegal aliens. Nearby, another protester held up a sign that read: “Unemployment is 60% for blacks in sanctuary cities.” The woman shouted into a megaphone: _________________________________________ Maxine Waters destroyed the black community! She has to go! She’s paid taxpayer money to discriminate against American citizens. And we’re not...

    The families could reel off all the times they had called the media and written to Washington, but after all that trying, they had never heard anyone who mattered say anything like it: Most Mexican immigrants, Donald J. Trump declared in his first campaign speech, were “rapists” who were “bringing drugs, bringing crime” across the border. Now he had come to meet them, the families of people killed by undocumented immigrants, and they wanted to tell him he was right. One son had been struck by a truck, another shot just around the corner from home. Different causes of death,...

    An informal Weibo survey shows very few Chinese want door open to people fleeing chaos in region, amid rumours Beijing will change its policy Some 97 per cent of respondents in an informal online poll ­involving 150,000 Chinese said “no” to refugees, as rumours spread that Beijing would open the country’s door to displaced people from the Middle East. An internet user started the survey on Weibo by using its social media polling functions on Wednesday. Within a day, 150,000 respondents had voted and only 3,798 had said “yes” to receiving Middle Eastern refugees. The rumours about China taking in...

    …woe unto me! the treacherous dealers have dealt treacherously; yea, the treacherous dealers have dealt very treacherously. …The city of confusion is broken down: every house is shut up, that no man may come in. There is a crying for wine in the streets; all joy is darkened, the mirth of the land is gone. In the city is left desolation, and the gate is smitten with destruction. When thus it shall be in the midst of the land among the people, there shall be as the shaking of an olive tree, and as the gleaning grapes when the vintage...

    The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has issued a new decision on President Donald Trump ’s March 6 Executive Order 13780, “Protecting the Nation From Foreign Terrorist Entry Into the United States.” The court affirmed the portions of the district court injunction that apply to the 90-day, six-country travel ban, but it vacated the portions of the injunction that relate to the government doing an internal review of its vetting procedures, which could lead to a much larger ban based on a different criterion. The Trump exception According to University of Chicago law professor Eric Posner, the courts are creating...

    They came for John Cunningham on a sunny evening last week, showing up at his house in Brighton like early dinner guests. They were federal immigration agents, and they were there to throw John Cunningham out of the country he has called home for 18 years. John Cunningham, 38, has an electrical contracting business. He has paid taxes. He has done much to improve the lives of those around him.

    London, June 5, 2017. A minute of silence is held at Potters Field Park, next to the City Hall, to pay tribute to the victims of the London Bridge jihadist attack three days before. Those who came have brought flowers, candles and signs bearing the usual words: "unity", "peace" and "love". Faces are sad but no trace of anger is visible. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, a Muslim, gives a speech emphasizing against all evidence that the killers' ideas have nothing to do with Islam. A few hours after the attack, Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May also refuses to...

    The supreme function of statesmanship is to provide against preventable evils. In seeking to do so, it encounters obstacles which are deeply rooted in human nature. One is that by the very order of things such evils are not demonstrable until they have occurred: at each stage in their onset there is room for doubt and for dispute whether they be real or imaginary. By the same token, they attract little attention in comparison with current troubles, which are both indisputable and pressing: whence the besetting temptation of all politics to concern itself with the immediate present at the expense...

    WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court on Thursday held that federal law authorizes courts to strip immigrant citizens of their U.S. citizenship if they obtained it as a result of making false statements to the federal government. Federal law found at 18 U.S.C. § 1425(a) makes it a crime to “knowingly procur[e], contrary to law, the naturalization of any person” to become a U.S. citizen. (“Naturalization” is the legal term for becoming a citizen.) Moreover, a second federal statute, 8 U.S.C. § 1451(e) adds that a foreigner who obtains U.S. citizenship through such a violation will lose that newly granted citizenship. Divna Maslenjak...

    The number of refugees admitted to the United States was cut by nearly half in the first three months of the Trump administration compared with the final three months of the Obama presidency, reflecting the new president's skepticism toward immigration. Government statistics released Friday showed that more than 25,000 refugees were permitted to enter and reside in the United States at the end of the Obama administration. In the initial months under President Trump, the number fell to 13,000.

    President Donald Trump proposed Wednesday night reforming the welfare system by putting into law a statute that has been the law of the land since 1996. "I believe the time has come for new immigration rules which say those seeking admission into our country must be able to support themselves financially and should not use welfare for a period of at least five years," Trump said to raucous applause from the roughly 6,000 supporters who flocked to his Iowa rally. clip With a few exceptions, new immigrants already cannot access welfare programs during their first five years in the US,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Supreme Court on Thursday limited the government's ability to strip U.S. citizenship from immigrants for lying during the naturalization process. The justices ruled unanimously in favor of an ethnic Serb from Bosnia who lied about her husband's military service. Justice Elena Kagan wrote for the court that false statements can lead to the revocation of citizenship only if they "played some role in her naturalization." The court rejected the position taken by the Trump administration that even minor lies can lead to loss of citizenship. The woman, Divna Maslenjak, and her family were granted refugee status...

    Democrats must win back working-class voters from Donald Trump’s blue-and-white-collar coalition — and mere rhetorical support for national unity should do the trick, claims a new article in the Atlantic magazine about the impact of immigration on American politics. “Democrats should put immigrants’ learning English at the center of their immigration agenda,” claims Peter Beinart, author of “How the Democrats Lost Their way on Immigration” in the July/August issue of The Atlantic. Beinart continues: If more immigrants speak English fluently, native-born whites may well feel a stronger connection to them, and be more likely to support government policies that help...

    “ˇQueremos ayudarle!” I shout. I’m trying to reassure my restless patient in the medical intensive care unit that we want to help. Nurses tie his flailing arms and legs to the bed rails. He is only several hours from his last drink, meaning worse agitation is to come as his alcohol withdrawal progresses. The nurses strategize out loud, but the English that fills the room is incomprehensible to him. Within minutes, security guards arrive. The patient's eyes bulge when he sees their dark blue uniforms and the intercoms strapped to their shoulders. This, I realize, could easily seem like his...

At the cross walk there would be a open manhole covers with no road cones around them, a line of government bureaucrats standing between you and the "press for signal button" at the cross walks. The crosswalk light wouldn't work as the button would be missing or broken. The traffic would be constantly moving with through...

    Infosys, the India-based information technology consulting firm with an office in Plano, is facing yet another reverse discrimination lawsuit asserting that it creates a hostile work environment for workers who aren't from India or South Asia. Erin Green, former supervisor at Infosys, filed suit this week in the Eastern District of Texas in Sherman, alleging that he and black and white staffers on his team were denied raises and promotions, and that other "non-South Asian" workers were berated by South Asian company officials. Green, of Frisco, is white and rose to the rank of "head of global immigration" while working...
