‘Sanctuary cities’ strike again! This time giving a ‘free pass’ to a child rapist

Local Philadelphia political leaders are under fire this week for a string of crimes committed by immigrants that the city released in defiance of ICE requests. One crime in particular, was of child rapist Juan Ramon Vasquez, who just pleaded guilty to illegal re-entry. Fox News had the inside scoop: The illegal immigrant from Honduras previously was in Philadelphia custody on local charges back in 2014. But when those charges were dropped a year later, city officials ignored an ICE detainer. Vasquez was later arrested and convicted for raping a child and unlawful sexual contact with a minor. He is now serving between eight and 20 years in ...

The real border crisis the media won’t report

If you really want to know what’s going on at the border, the liberal media may not be the right place to look. Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin wrote a column a month ago about the real issues surrounding separated families at the border the mainstream media ignored. What the media fails to add in these stories – not to mention malicious attacks at President Trump for enforcing the law – is the alarming number of migrants who are not family units and the rising number of drug traffickers using migrant families to tie up border resources. Conservative Review has the details: Through the process of reporting back to ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: When it comes to immigration, Republicans need to keep their promises

This week, the House killed a so-called Republican compromise bill that would have provided the biggest amnesty ever for nearly 2.2 million illegal immigrants to become citizens in this country. The House majority voting down this bill is a victory for Tea Party Patriots but we shouldn’t get too excited as House Speaker Paul Ryan and Republicans will likely consider another compromise bill. Before they do, Republican lawmakers really need to consider what’s at stake for them and for this country if they do pass an amnesty bill. The Hill has the commentary: I have been telling them that for years, based on my conversations with grassroots ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: The real crisis at the border

Jenny Beth Martin spent the last few days at the southern border of Arizona and Texas seeing firsthand the real crisis Border Patrol agents and local sheriffs are facing. They won’t tell you that it’s a “humanitarian” crisis the way the liberal media would have you believe; it’s far worse than that. Agents and local sheriffs deal with illegal immigrant border crossing, human trafficking and drug trafficking, and it’s getting worse. The Hill has Jenny Beth’s commentary: The law enforcement authorities face different problems. In Arizona, they’re trying to stop drug traffickers who recruit teenage illegal immigrants to carry their ...

Acting Director of ICE: ‘When you reward illegal behavior it encourages illegal immigration’

In an effort put the safety of the American people first, the Trump administration has tripled enforcement against employers who hire illegal immigrants. Another key player in enforcing immigration law has been acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Homan. The Daily Signal has Thomas Homan’s Commentary: “We’ve increased worksite enforcement by over 300 percent. We’re going to continue doing that,” Thomas Homan, who is retiring as chief of Immigration and Customs Enforcement, said Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington. “We’re not only going to continue conducting criminal investigations of ...

Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund: President Trump Doing His Job on Border Security, Time for Congress to Act

Atlanta, GA – Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement, reacting to the White House announcement that President Trump has ordered National Guard troops to the southern border. “President Trump is doing exactly what a president should do by sending our troops to the southern border as a caravan of many thousands of potential illegal immigrants approaches our country. As the pictures and video stream in they only crystallize the need for Congress to deliver what the President was elected on: a border wall, an end to DACA, an end to chain migration, defunding of sanctuary cities and an end to the ...

DOJ punishes California for interfering with federal immigration enforcement

It’s about time! The Justice Department filed a lawsuit against sanctuary state California which has deliberately interfered with federal jurisdiction on immigration. The DOJ and the Trump Administration are trying to block three recently-passed state laws that only appear to protect illegal immigrants rather than law-abiding, taxpaying citizens who reside in the state. Fox News has the story: It marked the latest legal and political confrontation with the nation's most populous state, which the federal government says has repeatedly stood in the way of its plans to step up enforcement actions in the workplace and against criminal aliens.
