    The value of Greyhound Lines Inc., the intercity bus service company, has seen a drop in its value as a result of reductions to illegal immigration at the United States-Mexico border. Executives with Greyhound’s parent company, FirstGroup, told MarketWatch their value has dropped by about $156 million because of less migration across the southern border.

    President Trump’s comment in an interview Friday that he will sign an executive order including a “road to citizenship” for immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children and protected under the DACA program is mistake.

The president told Telemundo anchor Jose Diaz-Balart that in the next few weeks “I’m going to do a big executive order, I have the power...
    President Trump says he will be signing “a very major immigration bill” within the next month that provides a “road to citizenship” to the roughly 800,000 illegal aliens who are enrolled in former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. During an interview with Telemundo on Friday, Trump said he is working on a comprehensive immigration plan that will allow hundreds of thousands of DACA illegal aliens to remain permanently in the U.S. and eventually obtain American citizenship....

President Donald Trump’s initially “heavy-handed” approach towards Mexico on issues related to border security and illegal immigration yielded unprecedented cooperation with the bordering states, Cuccinelli stated. “We have never had better cooperation from our Mexican partners to the south on blocking illegal immigration than we’re getting...

    A proposed policy platform for the Democrat Party, drafted by supporters of presumed Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), would give asylum to the world’s migrants — inviting them all to the United States to live and work. The document, known as the Biden-Sanders Unity Task Force Recommendations, would provide amnesty and a pathway to U.S. citizenship to the 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the nation and welcome hundreds of millions of the...

    The U.S. Supreme Court says Congress can bar the nation’s federal courts from interfering in the agencies’ deportation of illegal aliens. “An alien … has only those rights regarding admission that Congress has provided by statute,” said the 7-2 decision by Justice Samuel Alito. “An alien who tries to enter the country illegally is treated an an ‘applicant for admission,’ an alien who is detained shortly after unlawful entry cannot be said to have ‘effected an [legal] entry.” The decision in Department...
    The Supreme Court decision blocking the Trump administration’s attempts to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program puts immigration policies back in national focus. It highlights the incongruous, if not schizophrenic, attitudes we collectively hold about immigration and immigrants. In 2016, President Donald Trump’s promises to crack down on illegal immigration were keystone of his campaign. This obviously struck a positive chord with millions of voters. Yet at the same time, virtually every U.S. meat-poultry packing plant employs illegal...

    The former Acting Secretary for President Trump’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) admits that she helped weaken the legal case for the administration’s rescission of former President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. In September 2017, then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions rescinded Obama’s DACA program that has allowed nearly 800,000 illegal aliens to remain in the U.S. At the time, then-Acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke — a former DHS official under former President George W. Bush — signed the...
