The majority of illegal and legal immigrants living in the United States have a high school diploma or less, newly released research by Pew Research Center reveals.
The research finds that of the 1.5 million foreign nationals that the U.S. imports every year, the majority are less educated than native-born Americans, 40 percent of which have at least college or university degrees.
Well there goes the narrative…
An undocumented immigrant has been sentenced to 401 years-to-life in prison after being found guilty of multiple violent sex crimes against a family.
Macario Cerda, 39, was convicted in California, of three counts of forcible rape against two victims between 2009 and 2013, the Tulare County District Attorney’s Office reports.
He was also sentenced on one count of kidnapping to commit rape, seven counts of lewd acts upon a child under the age of 14, and one count of criminal threats, on January 17.
A teenage girl has been left seriously injured after she was run over by a bus while trying to escape being harassed by a drunk Afghan refugee in Germany.
The girl, 17, was waiting at a bus terminal in Minden, 45 miles from Hanover, with her 14-year-old friend around 9pm on Saturday when the 22-year-old man approached.
The man repeatedly harassed the 17-year-old so she and her friend fled towards a nearby bus, and the 41-year-old driver opened the doors to let them on.
If there is a crisis in housing the homeless in some of Canada’s biggest city shelters, then the problem lies squarely at the feet of one man, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
It is rare for me to blame a federal politician for failing to deal with an issue that is clearly within provincial or municipal jurisdiction. But in this case, the blame goes to the feds for one simple reason: Illegal border crossers.
When I think about Canada’s illegal border phenomenon the one quote that keeps coming back to me isn’t from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, or Immigration Minister Ahmed Hussen, or Conservative MP Michelle Rempel, the opposition critic on the file.
A man suspected of living in the US illegally shot and killed four people in Nevada this month, officials said.
Wilbur Martinez-Guzman was arrested Saturday in Carson City for possession of stolen property, burglary and immigration infractions — but authorities expect to file murder charges against him in the coming days.

Zabi-Ullah Hemmat wasn’t just one of 415,816 illegal immigrants caught at the southwest border in fiscal 2016. Nor was he just another of the 84 people from Afghanistan apprehended by Border Patrol agents that year.
What made Mr. Hemmat of special interest to authorities is that when he was snared by agents after 11 p.m. on a chilly November night and they ran his name through federal databases, he came back listed on the no-fly terrorist watch-list.
Belgian Senator and former Secretary-General of Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders) Alain Destexhe has slammed “elites” for their handling of mass migration and the lack of debate on the long-term effects of migration.
In 2018, more refugees were transferred from Germany to other EU member states than ever before, according to an Interior Ministry report obtained by German daily Süddeutsche Zeitung. The report was a response to a parliamentary inquiry by the Left Party.
Some 8,658 asylum-seekers who were required to leave Germany did so between January and the end of November 2018. The previous year, 7,102 were deported to other states.
As such, the proportion of completed transfers from Germany to other EU countries saw a rise from 15.1 percent in 2017 to 24.5 percent in 2018.
Well there’s that.
I am reminded of the battle at Helm’s Deep from The Lord of the Rings. There are only two other cinematic scenes that come close: the gun battle in downtown Los Angeles in Heat and the taking of the beaches in Saving Private Ryan. Helm’s Deep is probably one of the greatest war scenes in all of movie-making history.
Backs against the wall, Théoden’s forces were faced with an existential threat of wave after wave of never-ending combatants who laid siege to the wall.
The murder of 32-year-old Kate Steinle sparked a fierce debate over illegal immigration in America. Steinle was shot and killed while walking on San Francisco’s Pier 14. The shooter, Jose Ines Garcia-Zarate, had been deported five times and was wanted for a sixth deportation proceeding at the time of the shooting. He was charged with murder and illegal gun possession. Eventually, Garcia-Zarate was acquitted on the murder charge but was found guilty of illegal gun possession. He is now appealing the conviction.
The two Bangladeshi men, known as Special Interest Aliens by the Department of Homeland Security, made their way down an old dirt road that buttresses land owned by a private citizen. It was just 500 yards from the U.S. Mexico border and the Rio Grande River. Like thousands before them, they were smuggled by criminal trafficking organizations operating in Reynosa, Mexico into McAllen, Texas more than a week ago.
Pro-American immigration reformers say President Trump’s plan to offer a work permit amnesty to about a million illegal aliens and foreign nationals could encourage more caravans of Central Americans to come to the United States at the U.S-Mexico border.
In a weekend announcement, Trump offered Republicans and Democrats a plan to give amnesty in the form of three-year work permits to a little more than 700,000 illegal aliens who are enrolled in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Nearly 400 migrants traveled underground Monday through a series of tunnels built by smugglers before turning themselves in to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in what appears to be the largest single group of migrants ever attempting to seek asylum.

Asylum-seekers who seek to hide their identity or refuse to cooperate in obtaining new documents from their home could lose their right to remain in Germany under leaked details of a new draft law.
The proposals also include changes to the law to allow migrants awaiting deportation to be held in regular prisons, according to details leaked to Bild newspaper.
There are concerns the proposed changes could affect Syrian migrants who fled the Assad regime. Human rights activists have warned their families could be in danger if they request new identity documents from embassies controlled by the regime.
