New Study Reveals 96% Negative Coverage for Trump Immigration Policies

A telling new study from Harvard University's Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics, and Public Policy reveals that liberal media bias is more pronounced in immigration coverage than in any other issue. The study found that during the Trump administration's first 100 days the overall tone of coverage at major media news outlets (CNN, NBC, CBS, FOX, NYT, WaPo, BBC, etc) was 80 percent negative.

Man with 15 Previous Deportations Nearly Kills Boy, Mainstream Media Shrugs

If Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) had a loyalty rewards program, surely Constantino Banda-Acosta would be a platinum member. Banda-Acosta, a 38-year-old citizen of Mexico, has been deported from the United States at least 15 times according to the San Diego Union Tribune. Last week, while driving drunk, he allegedly blew through a stop sign and smashed into another vehicle, seriously injuring Lennox Lake, a six-year-old boy who was on his way home from a family trip to Disneyland. Banda-Acosta didn't stop or seek help, and the poor little boy had to undergo two surgeries at a Children's Hospital. (Donate to his GoFundMe page here.)

Should Residents of Baltimore and Chicago "Fleeing Violence" be Given Asylum in Canada?

Is it just me or are all Democrats and pro-immigration Republicans reading from the same scripts these days? How many times have you heard variations on this hackneyed sentiment? We're a nation of immigrants, so we need to bring hard-working, tax paying immigrants who are fleeing violence out of the shadows and give them a path to citizenship.

Bogus New CNN Poll Asserts 84% of Trump Voters Support Amnesty

A new CNN poll asserts that 90 percent of Americans, and a whopping 84 percent of Trump supporters support a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants. People tend to tell strangers what they think they want to hear over the phone, and in our current politically correct climate, where support for deportations and other types of immigration enforcement has become synonymous with racism, internet polling would be a lot more accurate for immigration surveys.

Team USA Faces Hostile "Home" Crowd in Miami at the World Baseball Classic

Team USA played the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic on Saturday night in what was officially considered a "home" game. But the game, won by the Dominican Republic 7-5 was played in Miami, a city that must feel very foreign to American teams facing opponents from Latin American countries. Baseball analyst Ken Rosenthal neatly summarized the overwhelmingly pro-Dominican crowd in Miami in a dispatch with the dateline, "SANTO DOMINGO NORTH".

Don't Blame the Art History Majors for the Tech Community's Addiction to Guest Workers

A piece in USA Today last week about the explosive growth of students earning women's and gender studies degrees had me thinking about how the degrees American students obtain impact the immigration debate. The article states that, according to the National Center for Education Statistics, the number of women's and gender studies degrees in the United States has soared by more than 300 percent since 1990, with more than 2,000 degrees conferred in 2015 alone.

Trump's VOICE and Why It's Counterproductive to Demonize Immigrants

If you'd like to see the country adopt a rule-of-law approach to immigration enforcement, there was plenty to like about President Trump's joint address to Congress on Tuesday night. His calls to "restore integrity and the rule of law to our borders", create a merit-based immigration system, and protect American workers by enforcing our laws were music to my ears. But I'm not sold on his idea to establish VOICE (Victims Of Immigration Crime Engagement), an office within the Department of Homeland Security that will supposedly help Americans who are victims of crimes committed by immigrants in the country illegally. (And publish quarterly reports "studying the effects of the victimization by criminal aliens present in the United States.")

BBC: Hip Hip Hooray for Sanctuary Cities!

When it comes to inaccurate, hopelessly biased "reporting" on immigration, Americans are spoiled for choice. Advocacy journalism is now more the rule than the exception and so rebutting and correcting the deluge of crooked immigration "reporting" is something of a Sisyphean task. Consuming a steady diet of mainstream media immigration "reporting" is akin to relocating to a toxic waste dump — after a while, you barely even notice the stench.

Why I'd Like to "Round Up" Members of the Media for a Good Talking to on Immigration Coverage & Terminology

Am I the only one who is troubled by the fact that a huge percentage of our august press corps habitually uses the term "rounded up," rather than "arrested," "detained," or "apprehended" to describe enforcement actions against migrants suspected of being in the country illegally? For example, take a look at this tweet from the Associated Press on Friday:

Liberal Judges Meet Section 214b of the INA

In upholding the suspension of Trump's executive order to temporarily ban refugees and travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit isn't simply guilty of judicial overreach. It has also demonstrated a deep ignorance of U.S. immigration law, and how visa screening works at an operational level at embassies and consulates around the world. It appears as though the Trump administration will unveil a new executive order, perhaps as early as next week, but this shouldn't be necessary and I'm afraid that the courts have now established a very dangerous precedent by conferring due process rights for citizens of other nations who have never before had them.
