DHS Adds Illegal Alien to Top 10 List After Congressional Attention

“Homeland Security officials Wednesday named an illegal immigrant whom police accuse of killing a young woman in a drunken-driving accident to their list of 10 most wanted fugitives, hoping to capture a man who’s become a black eye for immigration agents,” the Washington Times reports.

“Agents failed to respond in February to pick up Eswin Mejia, 19, after he was charged with vehicular homicide by Omaha, Nebraska, authorities. The police processed Mr. Mejia and he posted bond, so officers asked U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to come get him to make sure he didn’t escape altogether.”

Seeking Answers on Illegal Aliens Who Kill

“In the five years since an unlicensed illegal immigrant ran down his son, Don Rosenberg has turned his anger and grief into a mission to answer a seemingly simple question: How many people are killed each year by drivers who don’t belong in the U.S., much less behind a wheel?” Fox News says.

“Drew Rosenberg, a 25-year-old student at Golden Gate University, was riding his motorcycle in San Francisco when Roberto Galo struck him on Nov. 16, 2010. In his frenzied effort to flee the scene, Galo ran over his victim twice. The elder Rosenberg got the news no parent should hear from San Francisco General Hospital that night, but what he would learn over the next few years only compounded his bitterness.”

Refguee Policy Raises Questions

“On Easter Sunday, Breitbart News’ Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein aired a radio interview with Abu al-Ayna al-Ansari, described by Breitbart as ‘a well-known Gazan Salafist jihadist allied with Islamic State ideology.’ Klein asked al-Ansari whether ISIS was planning attacks on U.S. soil. While al-Ansari could not confirm the number of ISIS operatives in the United States, he said, ‘I can confirm that our leadership made it very clear that what happened in Paris, what happened in Brussels was only a small rehearsal before the big thing that will happen in America,’” Laura Hollis says.

Mass Immigration Increases Income Inequality

“Bernie Sanders supporters are triggered by the growing income inequality in the U.S. It’s a very real issue, but rather than blaming the wealthy for being successful, they should realize that importing over a million poor people a year is making the problem worse. Bringing millions of individuals over the last two decades negatively has affected the gap between the rich and poor. A study done by Ping Xu, James C. Garand, Ling Zhu, of the London School of Economics found the mass immigration has significantly increased income inequality,” Red Alert Politics notes.

Cubans Seek to Enter U.S. Before Law Changes

“President Obama’s push to improve relations with Cuba has coincided with an influx of Cuban immigrants into the U.S., statistics show, amid revived talk on Capitol Hill about ending a decades-old law allowing them easy entry to the country,” Fox News says.

“‘We are seeing an influx of Cubans at the Texas-Mexico border who are immediately admitted to this country and have an extremely fast pathway to citizenship,’ Texas GOP Rep. Blake Farenthold said in a statement.”

    The London School of Economics study is one of several British studies that show that mass immigration depresses wages. Last year it was the Bank of England that concluded the same exact thing. As noted in that link above, many unskilled jobs are going to be automated in the next few years. The last thing we need is more under educated unskilled immigrants but that is exactly what the Democrats, and many Republicans, propose.

    As for Hillary currently being ahead of Trump in polls, at one time in the 1988 race Dukakis was way ahead of Bush Sr., but as his policies were examined he lost big time. She is going to have to defend her open border policies. And that is what they are.

      yes but that is not a comparison that is real………in this case Hillary is real and she will probably win anyway.

      So before you go onto calling me names…….that is only a feedback of reality…..I have not said if I like her or not…..just what will happen….

      • The Polls on Hillary Winning if Trump is GOP Nominee

        Exclude a major portion of the silent majority [+50%] of American voters for Trump….Dems that won’t support Hillary or Bernie, but will support Trump…..look how small the Dem Caucases are and the opposite is true for the Reps….that’s my PROOF.

        • avatar No Change says:

          not really SWE….actually, it will probably be like Obama n McCain where the minorities that Trump alienated will vote for Hillary instead….that is my take…it will be interesting to see what happens…..

          Again……the day Congress questioned her about Benghazi and she was completely careless about he families that got killed….changed my mind forever…so no good candidate for presidency…….I will vote for the one that has a part of his/her goal term limits….and are servants The People as it should be.
