Foreign backpacker arrested for
staying in US half hour too long

TACOMA, Wash. -- A backpacker visiting from South America is locked in federal detention after reportedly over-extending his stay by 30 minutes. A Seattle immigration attorney has taken on the case for free, saying it´s "absurd." For six months Diego Simonassi said he roamed freely about the United States, backpacking all over the country. But, when his time was up on June 14 and he tried to enter Canada to continue his trip, he didn´t know he needed a visa to get through the border. Canadian authorities at the Peace Arch crossing turned him back to the US side.

Comments:
When the Canadians turned him back for not having a visa, the Americans arrested and detained him.

Who says we don´t take illegal immigration seriously?

That´s fine. He´ll get it straightened out and be on his way.

Those who travel around the world and cross many borders are expected to inform themselves so that these unfortunate incidents don´t occur. Some of us do so. Others, not so much.

Now go and round up the others who have overstayed for far longer periods.

(Two bits say this guy fits a .....profile. How un-PC.)

Smoke screen alert: He is from Uruguay! Take a look at his picture. He has backpacked around the world. I wonder how much time he spent in Iran or Pakistan . . . Uruguay is a hotbed of Islamists and Canada may have valid reasons to turn him away. I am just surprised we have not cut him loose on his own recognizance.

OK so take the 2 billion 0bummer wants and send back 4 million illegals south one way for $500 each. Just saying.

In brief: Coeur d’Alene Casino
drops Ted Nugent show over
complaints of racism

The Coeur d’Alene Casino dumped rock musician Ted Nugent from its summer schedule Monday, saying his “racist attitudes and views” have no place there. “We know what it’s like to be the target of hateful messages and we would never want to perpetuate hate in any way,” said Chief Allan, chairman of the Coeur d’Alene Tribe. Nugent, 65, was scheduled to perform Aug. 4 at the tribe’s casino-hotel in Worley, south of Coeur d’Alene. Complaints about the booking grew Monday after the Southern Poverty Law Center called attention to the appearance, labeling it a “PR disaster.”

President may legalize
5M immigrant parents

President Obama appears poised to take executive action that would legalize as many as 5 million illegal immigrant parents of U.S.-born children, a prospect that riles local immigration critics and adds a new dimension to concern about swelling immigrant populations in states like Massachusetts eyed as hosting sites for thousands of children who crossed the border unaccompanied. The Associated Press reported yesterday White House officials are laying the groundwork for an executive order that would automatically legalize roughly 5 million of an estimated 11 million people who have entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas.

The ferocity of Friday’s unanimous rejection by the Israeli government of Secretary of State John Kerry’s cease was kept quiet to prevent a formal rupture of relations between the two erstwhile allies, reports Israel’s Channel 2 Television. The popular and widely-watched Saturday evening newscast quotes several unnamed high officials in the Israeli government who claimed that Kerry’s cease fire proposal represented a “complete cave-in” to Hamas’s demands for an end to fighting in its war against Israel. The official, and others cited in The Times of Israel, claimed that Israel was “stunned” and “absolutely horrified” that Kerry’s ceasefire proposal, which contained

When The Times of Israel’s Avi Issacharoff first reported the content of John Kerry’s ceasefire proposal on Friday afternoon, I wondered if something had gotten lost in translation. It seemed inconceivable that the American secretary of state would have drafted an initiative that, as a priority, did not require the dismantling of Hamas’s rocket arsenal and network of tunnels dug under the Israeli border. Yet the reported text did not address these issues at all, nor call for the demilitarization of Gaza. It seemed inconceivable that the secretary’s initiative would specify the need to address Hamas’s demands for a lifting of

The IDF has not yet located and destroyed all of Hamas´ terror tunnels, but the consensus about the intent behind them is quite clear. This is Jonathan Dahoah HeLevi of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. Ismail Haniyeh, the Hamas prime minister, delivered a revealing speech on March 23, 2014, in which he stressed the strategic importance of the Hamas attack tunnels, which, he argued, have changed the balance of power with Israel, when taken together with his organization’s military build-up. In the meantime, the IDF’s war against the tunnels continues. On Monday IDF forces thwarted another terror attack after two groups of Hamas

Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama´s move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) believes the House of Representatives will immediately begin impeachment proceedings if President Barack Obama unilaterally grants work permits and amnesty to millions more illegal immigrants by the "end of summer." Appearing on Breitbart News Saturday with co-hosts Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon and Editor-in-Chief Alex Marlow from the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas, King said that if Obama "completely destroys the rule of law with the stroke of a pen" and "Congress fails to act," there will be "enough Republicans who didn´t have a desire to do this" that will be "immediately activated" to consider impeachment.

(Video) House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doubled down on her comments that Americans should view the flood of children crossing the border while claiming refugee status just like baby Jesus. Pelosi reminded reporters that it was the National Conference of Catholic Bishops that used the baby Jesus analogy. She then suggested that if Moses hadn’t have been accepted by the Egyptians, then there wouldn’t be the Ten Commandments. “You could even speak about, if it’s your tradition, Moses,” she said. “What would we do if Moses had not been accepted by the pharaoh´s family? We wouldn’t have the Ten Commandments

She always arrives in an SUV, sometimes staying for a few hours, sometimes as long as a week--just so long as the lady of the house is away. And, thanks to the fact that the house in question--the palatial residence of Bill and Hillary Clinton--is protected by a squad of U.S. Secret Servicemen who are in on the deception, the attractive, busty blonde can time her arrivals and departures to within minutes of those of Mrs Clinton.

Police detained two men at a Midtown hotel late Friday after a doorman reported they possessed a pair of pressure cookers like those used to make the Boston Marathon bombs. But the men say it was a misunderstanding: They plan to use the pressure cookers to prepare rice, chicken and meat. Mohammad Alotaibi, 21, and Ayoub Alawadhi, 20, pulled up to the InterContinental Hotel on East 48th Street late Friday with the pressure cookers in their car’s trunk, said law enforcement sources. A doorman called Crimestoppers, and NYPD counterterrorism and intelligence officers arrived to question the men. Police did not

Sunday on CNN´s "Fareed Zakaria GPS," former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton discussed the United States standing in the world and said former President George W. Bush is the president who made her "proud to be an American." Clinton then seemingly took a shot at Obama´s current lack of direction in world leadership. "We have to go back out and sell ourselves," Clinton said. "It is not to be taken for granted. What do we stand for and, how do we intend to lead and manage? How do we try to enlist the rest of the world in this struggle between cooperation and order and conflict and disorder which is really at the root of so much

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is putting a call out to the American people: He needs help to kill President Barack Obama’s plans to grant executive amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. Sessions wants Americans to melt Congress’ phone lines, demanding their members make a precondition of any border crisis bill that Obama’s executive order amnesty via the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and any future plans be stopped. (Snip) “We have people in our own country living in violence, fear and poverty every single day. They have demanded an immigration policy that puts their

VILLA PARK, Ill. — Fast food workers from across the country have voted in suburban Chicago to escalate their campaign for higher wages and union representation by including civil disobedience. More than 1,300 workers gathered today in Villa Park, Illinois. Some workers say they’re prepared to engage in sit-down strikes and organize more workers in their campaign to win $15-an-hour wages and a union. Their actions so far have included one-day strikes and a protest outside this year’s McDonald’s Corp. shareholder meeting. Industry officials say a $15 wage would hurt job creation, and that the solution is more education and
