European Crisis Was Avoidable
“Europe’s migration crisis has mostly been covered from the “human interest” perspective, with the perverse proliferation of tragic images and emotive narratives amplified by social media. This collective content stream has made it seem primarily a humanitarian crisis. But that is false.
Instead, what we are seeing is the unending monetization of human misery, a phenomenon as complete as it is cynical. By necessity, it has been complemented by an infectious institutionalization of irresponsibility–something that has not failed to affect geopolitics. This is why the ramifications of the migration crisis are so serious for Europe, America, and many other countries,” says Chris Deliso at The American Interest.
DHS arrest 336 illegal immigrants in latest push: ‘He or she must be sent home’
“Immigration authorities have arrested 336 immigrants since launching an effort Jan. 23 to deport those in the U.S. illegally, according to the Department of Homeland Security. Most of those arrested for removal from the country are young people who crossed the U.S. border without their parents since 2014 and have since been ordered to be deported by immigration courts, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson said in a statement issued Wednesday,” the Washington Times says.
Immigration Reform Could Change America
“Failures of the immigration system have a profound impact, exacerbating nearly every challenge and threat that America and Americans confront on a day-to-day basis. However, the true significance of immigration is rarely, if ever, discussed by politicians or by journalists upon whom we depend for information. Unbridled greed and hunger for power lead the list of factors that motivate many politicians to ignore this side of the immigration debate. Journalists may be ideologues or may be controlled by the executives of their news organizations who are impacted by greed as well,” says Michael Cutler at Frontpagemag.com.
Trump Faces Allegations About Model Agency
“There are some pretty damning allegations in this new report out by ABC’s Brian Ross on Donald Trump, his modeling agency and the foreign women the company hired using H1B visas.

Trump Says H-1B Program Is Bad
“Donald Trump wants to put the screws to H-1B visas, which are given to foreign professionals who perform specialty occupations in the U.S. During the Republican debate on Thursday, the Republican front-runner admitted that he has “used” H-1B visas as a businessman because he could (a recent investigation shows that he personally benefited from this program). ‘I know the H-1B very well,’ he said. ‘And it’s something that I frankly use and I shouldn’t be allowed to use it. We shouldn’t have it. Very, very bad for workers.’ Trump went on to argue that he would prevent other executives from leveraging this option if elected president,” Fastcompany.com says.
