The Washington Examiner has the details: Nearly 40 million Social Security numbers have been stolen and used by illegal immigrants and others to get work, according to agency records obtained by an immigration reform group.

Jenny Beth’s Journal: What’s happened to the Democratic party’s approach to illegal immigration?

To many, it’s no surprise that Democrats have done a complete 180 on illegal immigration and border security over the years. Today, leading Democrats oppose construction of a physical barrier, demand abolition of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), and anything that Trump touches. The party’s switch has betrayed their own constituents and abandoned them in search of new voters. Jenny Beth Martin has the commentary on FoxNews: Back in 2006, when the Secure Fence Act was being considered in the Senate, Democratic party leaders envisioned a difficult presidential election in 2008. They wanted to secure their right flank against charges ...

‘Sanctuary cities’ strike again! This time giving a ‘free pass’ to a child rapist

Local Philadelphia political leaders are under fire this week for a string of crimes committed by immigrants that the city released in defiance of ICE requests. One crime in particular, was of child rapist Juan Ramon Vasquez, who just pleaded guilty to illegal re-entry. Fox News had the inside scoop: The illegal immigrant from Honduras previously was in Philadelphia custody on local charges back in 2014. But when those charges were dropped a year later, city officials ignored an ICE detainer. Vasquez was later arrested and convicted for raping a child and unlawful sexual contact with a minor. He is now serving between eight and 20 years in ...

The real border crisis the media won’t report

If you really want to know what’s going on at the border, the liberal media may not be the right place to look. Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin wrote a column a month ago about the real issues surrounding separated families at the border the mainstream media ignored. What the media fails to add in these stories – not to mention malicious attacks at President Trump for enforcing the law – is the alarming number of migrants who are not family units and the rising number of drug traffickers using migrant families to tie up border resources. Conservative Review has the details: Through the process of reporting back to ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: When it comes to immigration, Republicans need to keep their promises

This week, the House killed a so-called Republican compromise bill that would have provided the biggest amnesty ever for nearly 2.2 million illegal immigrants to become citizens in this country. The House majority voting down this bill is a victory for Tea Party Patriots but we shouldn’t get too excited as House Speaker Paul Ryan and Republicans will likely consider another compromise bill. Before they do, Republican lawmakers really need to consider what’s at stake for them and for this country if they do pass an amnesty bill. The Hill has the commentary: I have been telling them that for years, based on my conversations with grassroots ...

Jenny Beth’s Journal: The real crisis at the border

Jenny Beth Martin spent the last few days at the southern border of Arizona and Texas seeing firsthand the real crisis Border Patrol agents and local sheriffs are facing. They won’t tell you that it’s a “humanitarian” crisis the way the liberal media would have you believe; it’s far worse than that. Agents and local sheriffs deal with illegal immigrant border crossing, human trafficking and drug trafficking, and it’s getting worse. The Hill has Jenny Beth’s commentary: The law enforcement authorities face different problems. In Arizona, they’re trying to stop drug traffickers who recruit teenage illegal immigrants to carry their ...
