CAPS Goes to Capitol Hill

Californians for Population Stabilization went to Capitol Hill recently to lobby the state’s U.S. representatives and to represent the organization at various immigration enforcement-related meetings.

Senate Refuses to Defund Sanctuary Cities, Sentence Criminal Aliens

October 20 was a dark day for millions of Americans concerned that local law enforcement in many communities refuse to honor Immigration Customs and Enforcement detainers in order to help deport dangerous felons. The Senate cravenly blocked S. 2146 (the Stop Sanctuary Policies and Protect Americans Act) that, had it been law years ago, would have saved many lives.

Mass Immigration: Unintended Sociological Displacement of American Culture

Earlier this month at a New Jersey school board meeting, a group of minority immigrant mothers demanded the school system close schools in observance of a religious holiday, Eid al-Adha. Their demands were not met.

Southern California Enforcement Sweep Nets 244 Criminal Aliens in Four Days

The recent four-day sweep in Southern California shows the importance of immigration law enforcement. Years ago, Immigration and Naturalization Service agents routinely patrolled the interior of the United States, often detaining aliens, but through their mere presence always sending the message that they were out there and ready to do their jobs. Under President Obama, enforcement is next to nonexistent, and raids nearly unheard of.

Pending NLRB Decision Could Be a Boost for Unemployed Americans

Within a few weeks, the National Labor Relations Board will rule on who can be defined as an “employer.” At issue is whether temporary or contract workers provided by placement agencies should be considered employees of the organization they are assigned to, be allowed to collectively bargain with their employers, and be able to hold employers liable for labor violations committed against them.

Fresno: Overwhelmed by Immigration, Poverty, Gang Violence

In June, my travels took me to Fresno. Even though I had lived in the San Joaquin Valley for a quarter of a century, Fresno’s urban decay horrified me. I couldn’t fathom how much the city had deteriorated during the eight years since my move.

As Crimes against Americans Mount, Excuses Abound for Nonenforcement

Six weeks have passed since Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez shot and killed Kate Steinle. Nightly news viewers are well familiar with the details: Lopez-Sanchez is a five-time deported, seven-time convicted felon who executed 32-year-old Steinle in sanctuary city San Francisco.

Marilyn Pharis Raped, Murdered by Alien; Family Remembers Her as ‘Gentle’

Even in the aftermath of 64-year-old Santa Maria, California, resident Marilyn Pharis’ brutal death at the hands of 29-year-old illegal alien Victor Aureliano Martinez Ramirez and his 20-year-old accomplice Jose Villagomez, an American citizen, but likely anchor baby, political correctness endures.

Victim’s Mother Says Some Senators Slept during Sanctuary City Hearing

Sabine Durden, whose son Dominic was killed in 2012 by an unlicensed Guatemalan alien with a prior felony and two DUIs, said that during Senator Chuck Grassley’s hearing on sanctuary cities, some senators paid little attention, read paperwork and were even “nodding off.” Watch Durden’s account

Heroin Epidemic: The Real Metric for Determining Border Security

With the exception of presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, all other candidates have made securing the U.S.-Mexican border a priority. While the U.S.-Mexican border must be made secure, the goal of securing that border is as deceptive as are the claims of the administration that the borders have never been more secure.

Purely focusing on the U.S.-Mexican border ignores the fact that, as I have noted in many articles and testimony at congressional hearings, the United States is a nation of 50 “border states.”
