Trump takes a firm stance on illegal immigration

As a caravan full of immigrants from Honduras makes its way to the American border, President Trump is calling for action from central American countries to stop it. He has called upon halting foreign aid to Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, and warned that military action may be taken to stop immigrants if they make it to the U.S./Mexico border. The Hill has the story: Trump in a series of early-morning tweets also blamed Democrats for the “assault on our country,” adding that illegal immigration is “far more important” to him than trade or the recently negotiated trade pact with Mexico and Canada. And he railed against ...

But the report explained, "Medicaid will pay for a delivery in almost all cases if the mother is uninsured or has a low ...

Study: Number of illegal immigrants is substantially larger than previously thought

Yale professors looked at previous studies, especially ones by the Obama Administration and government agencies, and saw many majors flaws in how the data was collected. After a thorough look at the numbers, the professors found that a more accurate estimate is at least 16.7 million illegal immigrants and up to 29.5 million. The Washington Times has the details: “Policy debates about the amount of resources to devote to this issue, and the merits of alternative policies, including deportation, amnesty, and border control, depend critically on estimates of the number of undocumented immigrants in the U.S., which sets the scale of the issue,” ...

Illegal immigrants must pay the price; not us

A legal immigrant from Hungary, Agnes Gibboney, opens up about the murder of her son 16 years ago, a murder committed by an illegal immigrant. After hearing about the news of Mollie Tibbetts, Gibboney understands what her family is going through. USA Today has Agnes Gibboney’s commentary: Like my son’s murderer, there were probably numerous opportunities at which Rivera’s illegal presence could have been determined and acted upon. Instead of officials catching him using a false ID card and Social Security number, government at all levels apparently failed to see the obvious until it was too late for Mollie and her family. The apologists ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: What’s happened to the Democratic party’s approach to illegal immigration?

To many, it’s no surprise that Democrats have done a complete 180 on illegal immigration and border security over the years. Today, leading Democrats oppose construction of a physical barrier, demand abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and anything that Trump touches. The party’s switch has betrayed their own constituents and abandoned them in search of new voters. Jenny Beth Martin has the commentary on FoxNews: Back in 2006, when the Secure Fence Act was being considered in the Senate, Democratic party leaders envisioned a difficult presidential election in 2008. They wanted to secure their right flank against charges ...

‘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 ...
