"Si se puede!" -- Massive crowd rallies at Capitol in Madison against "anti-immigrant" bills
    Madison, Wis. -- Thousands of Latinos and immigrants from around the state demonstrated outside the Capitol in Madison Thursday, February 18th in an effort to put a stop to legislation they say targets immigrants. The event was called "A Day Without Latinos," and 20,000 people walked off the job and out of class to take part.
    The demonstrators chanted and held signs on the square outside the Capitol Thursday morning, amid temperatures below freezing.

Wisconsin Lawmaker: Sanctuary cities bill not a priority
    A day after thousands gathered in and around the Capitol to protest two bills they called anti-immigrant, the office of Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said Friday that one of the bills, which would withhold state funding from so-called sanctuary cities, is not a priority for passage.
    Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said Friday that Madison is one of the “sanctuary cities” the measure is meant to restrict, but Madison police call that label inaccurate.

Winning Civil War II
    It all started in Los Angeles with Special Order 40. I fought against Special Order 40 for ten years in California because I knew where it would lead.
    Across the U.S., there are over 300 cities, counties, and states that are considered "sanctuary cities".
    Last October, Obama killed a Senate anti-sanctuary cities bill some say was inspired by Donald Trump.
    Let me make this clear: If under a President Trump, the federal government stepped in and tried to put a halt to sanctuary cities, we would see the second civil war.
    If we elect Hillary we wouldn't have that civil war for at least 4 years. The difference is: Under Trump, we would win Civil War II.
PS: I realize that civil war is "a war between citizens of the same country.” What is happening involves an invading force that is supported by citizens (some made so by amnesty) - and a foreign power - Mexico. We may need a new word for this.

'Hillary's Amnesty' and 'Trump's Wall' Causing Rush to Texas, Says Border Patrol Agent

The surrender on immigration has already begun   
We're seeing plenty of examples of how the media has already skipped over the nuisance of holding an election and determined that Hillary Clinton is effectively the next President of the United States. If that does happen (and it's still an “if” at this point, no matter what you're hearing on cable news), Secretary Clinton's supporters are expecting some rapid movement on a “comprehensive immigration reform” package. I've already written about how this might be far from a done deal, but you can expect the media to jump on this bandwagon in a big way......

Feds Charge Sheriff Arpaio With Criminal Contempt-of-Court   
Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been officially charged with criminal contempt-of-court over claims he ignored a judge's order in a racial profiling case.

At that time, Judge Susan Bolton asked the prosecutors to write a “show cause order” for her to sign......

Sanctuary city illegal immigrant sparks $61M fire in national forest   
Angel Gilberto Garcia-Avalos had been deported five times in just the past four years, yet each time he has managed to sneak from Mexico back into the U.S., where he ended up in more mischief: driving without a license, attempted burglary and felony weapons charges. -- In August, he graduated to full-fledged mayhem, sparking a fire in the Sequoia National Forest that has already cost the government $61 million and left some of the country's most beautiful landscape scarred for years to come......

Time to Downsize the Federal Immigration Program    
Immigration is a federal government program. Like many programs, it can be beneficial. But also like many programs, it has become overgrown and no longer serves the national interest. -- A modern society like ours doesn't need any immigration. With a third of a billion people spanning a continent, the idea that America can't prosper without importing people from abroad is silly. .....

Obama to rescind Gadsden Purchase?
There is a rumor afoot that Barack Obama will rescind the Gadsden Purchase and return parts of Arizona and New Mexico to Mexico before the end of the year. -- Under the plan, Mexico would pay the United States $263,814,815 --- the price the U.S. paid for the territory in 1854, adjusted for inflation. -- Over a five year term, residents of the area that includes Tuscon Arizona, would be given Mexican work permits good for ten years, during which they could become full Mexican citizens, after passing language and cultural tests. They would have to renounce their U.S. citizenship.

Trump/SPLC/Blackout leaves ABP almost broke
    Donald Trump launched his campaign promising to solve the border problem. That was good for America, but not so good for American Border Patrol. Since last summer donations to ABP have dropped by almost 60%, making it difficult to operate with full effectiveness, according the Glenn Spencer, head of ABP.
    "For fourteen years we have fought to get action on security our border, and now Donald Trump says he will," Spencer said. "It is not surprising, then, that people would support someone with our goals --- and with the ability to do something about it --- and in a way we have done our job," he added.
    Spencer said the decades-long attack on him by the Southern Poverty Law Center has long hindered his ability to gain support for his work.
    "If Trump loses, the SPLC will be happy to know their tactics worked," Spencer said.
    Spencer has never earned a salary during his fourteen years as head of the organization.
    Compare that to the head of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, whose president earned $295,638 in 2014.
    "FAIR's president now earns more than the entire annual budget of ABP," Spencer commented.
    Spencer said the blackout by the mainstream media --- and the attack by the SPLC --- has made it difficult to raise funds --- especially from foundations.

Immigration Letters From Around the Country  
 Hillary Clinton states that it is a "right" for immigrants and refugees to come into our country. This is inaccurate and not a true statement. It is a privilege and an honor. -- The U.S. government admits individuals only after a thorough screening abroad to ensure they meet the legal definition of a refugee and they in no way pose a national security or health threat to the U.S. -- It is critical that only those refugees who believe in our Constitution, embrace American values, a tolerant American society, and expect to flourish in our country will be considered for a visa. They must not sympathize with extremist groups or support bigotry. -- The Democratic Party platform encourages an open door policy. The Republican platform opposes any form of amnesty for those who have entered illegally and cannot be carefully vetted, specifically those whose homelands have been a breeding ground for terrorism........

Hillary goes all-in for unlimited migration   
The United Nations has cooked up a “New Urban Agenda” coming soon to a city near you. -- It was unveiled this week in Quito, Ecuador, at the so-called Habitat III conference. -- And part of the plan, enthusiastically embraced by Hillary Clinton, calls for unlimited migration across open borders. Migrants displaced by war, failing economies or other hardships will be seen as having “rights” in nations other than their own...

Obama Released 52K Illegal Alien Kids Into the US in FY2016   
Anyone remember when Jeh Johnson vowed that our borders weren't open to illegal immigration, or when President Obama promised that anyone who recently crossed into the U.S. from Mexico wouldn't be allowed to stay? -- The lie detector test determined: those were lies. -- According to recently released data reviewed by MRCTV, the Department of Homeland released another 52,147 illegal alien kids into the United States in fiscal year 2016, averaging about 149 per day. Processed as "refugees," these children are in many cases sent to a family member who's also here illegally......

Hillary: How do we know?
The Los Angeles Times says "It's the foundation of Donald Trump's presidential campaign: curbing illegal immigration and securing the border." -- It goes on to say:
    "Trump's claim that Hillary Clinton wants 'open borders' doesn't hold up.
    "None of Clinton's proposals suggests “open borders” that allow “everybody” to enter.  
    "Her plan calls for boosting border security and 'detaining and deporting those individuals who pose a violent threat to public safety.'"
    I have one question for Hillary Clinton: Unless we stop and interrogate every illegal border crosser, how do we know who is a violent threat?

Trump right about immigration   
Among Democrats, it is an article of faith that their party, and not the GOP, best represents poor and economically vulnerable Americans. -- But on the critical issue of undocumented immigration, it is the policies of Donald Trump, not Hillary Clinton, which would best improve those Americans' lives. And by their votes on 2014's Measure 88, the undocumented-immigrant driver card referendum, many rank-and-file Oregon Democrats --- if not their party's elite --- proved they may well agree. .....

'The New Normal': California's Severe Drought Could Last Indefinitely, New Study Says

Another Trump immigration screw up
    TRUMP: President Obama has moved millions of people out. Nobody knows about it, nobody talks about it. But under Obama, millions of people have been moved out of this country. They've been deported. She doesn't want to say that, but that's what's happened, and that's what happened big league
    Obama isn't deporting millions, he redefined deportations to include people who voluntarily return to Mexico after apprehension by the US Border Patrol --- thus boosting the numbers falsely.
    See the L.A. Times: "High deportation figures are misleading".
    The problem is that Obama is NOT deporting people --- even criminals who have been caught.
    Trump defeated his own argument that Obama was not enforcing immigration laws, and neither will Hillary.
    Yes, I know that when the media challenge Trump on this they would have to admit that Obama was lying --- but Trump is lying as well --- and he should never do that.
    Whoever suggested Trump use this argument is an idiot.

Where Trump may have lost the election
    During the debate Chris Wallace asked Clinton about the WikiLeaks story...
    WALLACE: Secretary Clinton, I want to clear up your position on this issue, because in a speech you gave to a Brazilian bank, for which you were paid $225,000, we've learned from the WikiLeaks, that you said this, and I want to quote. "My dream is a hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders." So that's the question....
    Clinton then tried to change the subject to the influence of Russia.
TRUMP: That was a great pivot off the fact that she wants open borders, OK? How did we get on to Putin?
    He goes on to allow the pivot.
    TRUMP: She wants open borders. People are going to pour into our country. People are going to come in from Syria. She wants 550 percent more people than Barack Obama, and he has thousands and thousands of people. They have no idea where they come from.
    And you see, we are going to stop radical Islamic terrorism in this country. She won't even mention the words, and neither will President Obama. So I just want to tell you, she wants open borders.
    Now we can talk about Putin. I don't know Putin. He said nice things about me. If we got along well, that would be good. If Russia and the United States got along well and went after ISIS, that would be good.
    He has no respect for her. He has no respect for our president. And I'll tell you what: We're in very serious trouble, because we have a country with tremendous numbers of nuclear warheads -- 1,800, by the way -- where they expanded and we didn't, 1,800 nuclear warheads. And she's playing chicken. Look, Putin...
    Trump completely blew the opportunity to focus on the border, including the fact that Central Americans are flooding across the Texas border reported two days before the debate --- all engineered by the White House.
    At this point I turned off the TV and walked away. He may have just lost the election.

Illegal Immigration Hurts Young Americans The Most 
Every year about 4 million American youngsters move on from high school. On average just over 80% of them graduate and the others, around 760,000 each and every year, just move on. Unfortunately the economic futures of those who don't obtain a high school diploma are rather bleak. They are made bleaker in that they will in all likelihood be competing for jobs against millions of illegal immigrants who are willing to work for far below market wages.....
