One of Philadelphia’s most prominent Latin American events, El Carnaval de Puebla, has been canceled this year because of what one organizer called “the severe conditions affecting the immigrant community.” The annual parade through South Philadelphia has taken place in late April or early May for the last decade and is the city’s largest Cinco de Mayo celebration. Organizer Edgar Ramirez said as many as 15,000 gather from as far as New England and Chicago. The decision to cancel El Carnaval, Ramirez said in an interview Friday, was “sad but responsible” in light of the immigration crackdown by federal authorities.
Comments: Criminals fear being apprehended, instead of flaunting their status and demanding ever more concessions from the natives? Must be a new sheriff in town.
Note: Why are the illegals so afraid if the Democrat Socialists are winning the court cases stopping President Trump´s immigration cases? They offer free immigration lawyers for anyone ICE picks up, don´t they?
Or are the Democrat Socialists lying to them and the illegals know it?
Arrest them in the beaches, in the valleys, in the courthouses, at the traffick stops at the Cinco de Mayo and at the Puebla Carnaval.
In they are Illegal Aliens that is strike #1, false Social Security Number is #2, Identity Theft #3, FoodStamps #4, false SSN for School Lunches #5, False SSN for Federal Tax Credits #6, Gang Membership #7, Drug trafficking #8, Human Sex Trafficking #9, and so much more. Illegals should fear deportation so that they will not come. We cannot afford the handouts they milk US for.
Another FAKE holiday, like Kwanza. Even Mexicans in Mexico don´t celebrate ´Cinco de Mayo´. Let´s face it, this is just a reason for food vendors to hit the streets to accompany bands & dancers giving a free a show for the gringos.
The idea that illegals are marching, flying a foreign flag and making demands of our country the height of hubris. I´m glad they will be thinking twice about marching in plain sight and insulting the country that they have been invading.
Contrary to what the beer companies tell you Cinco de Mayo is the commemoration of the defeat of INVADERS in Mexico - The Mexicans repelled the invasion of the French into their country.
We have a better count of the bottles of Mexican beer that cross the border into this country than we do of the people who cross the border from Mexico. . . but then again those bottles of beer are TAXED!
Los Angeles — A man acted strangely long before he caused a disturbance on a plane that prompted fighter jets to accompany it to Hawaii, but a lack of communication and an airline’s hesitancy to be caught on video booting a passenger could have played a role in allowing him to fly, experts say. Anil Uskanli, 25, of Turkey, had purchased a ticket at an airline counter in the middle of the night with no luggage and had been arrested after opening a door to a restricted airfield at Los Angeles International Airport. Airport police did not notify the airline, but
The first leg of President Trump’s planned border wall will cost an exorbitant $24.5 million per mile, according to the 2018 budget he submitted Tuesday that details a massive shake-up in immigration policy. (Snip) In his proposed budget, Mr. Trump says he is looking for ways to calculate the “net budgetary effects” of immigration programs and policy. “Once the net effect of immigration on the federal budget is more clearly illustrated, the American public can be better informed about options for improving policy outcomes and saving taxpayer resources,” the president said in the blueprint. “In that regard, the budget supports
Former late-night television host David Letterman eviscerated President Trump in a rare interview, calling the president a “goon” who lacks any core principles. The 70-year-old comedian told GQ magazine in its upcoming June issue that while he has “no reason” to regret hosting Mr. Trump multiple times on “Late Night,” he is very “disappointed” that his former guest is now representing the country. “It makes me sick,” Mr. Letterman said. “But we always looked forward to having him on. He was a great guest. He was just a big, wealthy dope who’d come on and we would make fun of
The names of thousands of concealed carry permit holders in Florida may have been leaked as the result of a recent data breach, state officials said. An online payment system utilized by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) was compromised about two weeks ago, the office acknowledged Monday, in turn exposing the Social Security numbers of 469 customers as well as the names of 16,190 concealed weapon licensees. The breach appears to have originated overseas and is currently the subject of an investigation undertaken by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, FDACS said in a statement.
Minneapolis Mayor Betsy gave a wide-ranging State of the City speech Tuesday at a mosque in north Minneapolis, covering everything from Nicollet Mall and President Donald Trump to affordable housing and workforce development. Running for re-election in November, Hodges said the city must embrace the discomfort of transformation, a theme of her campaign, and work tirelessly to create “One Minneapolis” that “works for everyone,” and where everyone contributes to making the city work for everyone else. (Snip) Hodges repeated her commitment to resist Trump and stand in the way of his “attack and unfairly targeted policy” against Muslims. “When Donald Trump
Two teenagers were wounded Tuesday evening (May 23) in a shooting on Freret Street in Central City, according to New Orleans police. A 19-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound to the right leg and a 17-year-old boy suffered a gunshot wound to the left thigh, police said. Investigators were congregated at the intersection of Freret and Martin Luther King Boulevard, where police had cordoned off the river-bound side of Martin Luther King and an adjacent section of Freret. About five evidence cones had been placed at the intersection, including several in the roadway directly in front of a corner store.
A suspect in Monday afternoon´s double shooting in Mid-City first tried to run over one of the victims with his car before shooting him, New Orleans police said. The shooting was reported about 1:15 p.m. in the 4100 block of South Carrollton Avenue, NOPD said. It was not immediately clear if both of the wounded men were shot by the same gunman. A preliminary NOPD report says the first victim, who turned 25 on Tuesday (May 23), got in a verbal altercation with an unknown male, "at which time the male produced a gun and shot him."
A 25-year-old man was robbed at gunpoint early Tuesday (May 23) just a few blocks from Tulane and Loyola universities, according to the New Orleans Police Department. The victim told police at 1:43 a.m. near Broadway and Hampson streets that he was approached by four men, one of whom was armed. The suspects took his bike then fled, according to a preliminary police report. Police are also investigating two attempted armed robberies.

A 16-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with two armed robberies in New Orleans East, according to the New Orleans Police Department. The first crime happened May 16 in the 4900 block of Treves Street. A woman told police she was parking her car when approached by a man wearing khaki pants, white tennis shoes, a dark-colored jacket with light-colored sleeves and a gray hood over his face, police said. The armed suspect took her keys and drove off in her 2014 Honda CRV, according to NOPD. The second robbery happened the next day in the 13200 block
A woman was carjacked early Sunday morning (May 21) after she stopped to avoid hitting a man standing in a Bayou St. John street, New Orleans police said. Police said the woman was driving in the 800 block of North Rendon Street about 1:30 a.m. when she spotted someone standing in the street. She stopped to avoid hitting the man, police said, and two other men walked up to her car: a white, four-door 2011 Honda Accord with Louisiana license plate 225ARQ. One of the three men opened the woman´s car door and ordered her to get out, police said.
It didn´t take long for congressional Republicans to start picking apart the budget proposal the White House released Tuesday. Lawmakers immediately talked down the endurance of the budget proposal, suggesting it wasn´t going far and that Congress would restore funding to favorite programs. Michigan Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan, who helped get an Obamacare repeal through the House, mocked funding for Trump´s beloved wall on the U.S. Mexico border, questioining the need for $1.6 billion to pay for it. ´I thought Mexico was going to pay for the wall, why is this in our budget?´ Upton said, only partly joking.
A white woman was assaulted on a Brooklyn subway by a black man railing against whites and mocking a black woman for “trying to look white,” police sources said. (Snip) The 32-year-old victim got onto the train and saw a black man spewing hate, calling whites and women “dogs,” sources said. He then focused his attention on a black woman — saying her hair weave meant she was "trying to look white." When the white woman told the suspect to leave the other woman alone, he hit her with his baseball cap, then punched her in the mouth, cutting her lip.
Climate change” and “child marriage” are “interconnected” issues, said Chelsea Clinton on Monday. Participating in a left-wing discussion panel framed as a meeting for “social justice,” she was introduced as an “activist, thought leader, and change agent.” Using "climate change" as a euphemism for the narrative of anthropogenic global warming, Clinton framed the burning of fossil fuels as exacerbating other perceived social and political issues (emphasis added): “[We] carry multiple concerns in both our head and our heart. Just listening to the concerns around education and climate change, women’s health, child marriage, access to technology, all of those are of
Michelle Obama has been enjoying her Italian vacation in style—and got a welcome fit for a star as she and her husband visited the city of Siena, Tuscany today. The former First Lady looked especially glamorous as she stepped out in a flirty shoulder-baring top, paired with a high-waisted khaki-colored pants. Her husband, who previously went out for a scenic bike ride in the countryside, had ditched his sporty outfit for a polished shirt and pants. A massive crowd cheered after spotting the former presidential couple, with some fans yelling: ´President Obama!´ Scroll down for video The pair, who arrived in Italy Friday
While Barack was hitting the links in Tuscany, Michelle Obama was hitting the sights about 67 miles away ... and looking good in pink doing it. The former First Lady was strolling around in Montalcino, Italy this weekend -- and she appeared to be the talk of the small town. You can´t blame the locals ... she kinda stood out with the pink and white. Plus ... it´s Michelle Freakin´ Obama. She´ll always turn heads. Michelle snagged a second for herself during a food break, but then it was right back into the international spotlight. Togliti di mezzo!
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) blasted President Trump´s budget on Tuesday, calling the overall proposal "dead on arrival." “President Trump’s $603 billion defense budget request is inadequate to the challenges we face, illegal under current law, and part of an overall budget proposal that is dead on arrival in Congress," McCain, a frequent critic of the president, said in a statement. The Trump administration on Tuesday unveiled a budget that would shift $54 billion from nondefense to defense spending for fiscal year 2018. That´s roughly $19 billion more than former President Barack Obama´s last plan. McCain added that Trump´s budget proposal
Fox News staffers are growing increasingly dismayed as network star Sean Hannity and others continue to promote the unfounded conspiracy theory that Seth Rich, a Democratic National Committee staffer was murdered last year for talking to WikiLeaks. The Daily Beast spoke to nearly a dozen reporters, pundits, and hosts inside Fox News who all conveyed the same sentiment: Hannity is “embarrassing” the network, and the promotion of the Rich conspiracy theory is senselessly cruel to a grieving family. “ARE WE STILL AIRING THAT SH*T?!” one Fox News political reporter, who says they are furious that the conservative cable-news giant is
Following the death of former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes last week, tributes were offered in print and on air both from likely, and perhaps unlikely, sources. But in the opening paragraph of a New York Times op-ed out Monday, Monica Lewinsky said that she did not plan to have her piece serve as another Ailes obituary. “It is, I hope, instead an obituary for the culture he purveyed — a culture that affected me profoundly and personally,” Lewinsky wrote. Calling it a “culture of exploitation,” Lewinsky blasted the environment at Fox News and other cable news outlets — where
UPDATED: June 14, 2016: The Washington Post reports "Russian government hackers penetrated the computer network of the Democratic National Committee." On what did the paper base this claim? The Post cites "committee officials and security experts who responded to the breach." These "security experts" are with CrowdStrike, a private cyber security firm hired and paid by the DNC. While reading the following chronology, it is important to bear in mind that the FBI has never examined the DNC computer network because the DNC prohibited the FBI from doing so. Also, that the FBI, under former Director Comey, not to mention President Obama and
Fox News dolt, Juan Williams praised the people in government who are leaking to the media in order to damage the Trump administration. He also told the leakers to call him because leakers are ‘good for democracy’. (Snip) Juan Williams: “Just give me a moment here to say if you have a leak please call me at FOX News. I’m all for leakers. I think leakers are good to contribute to democracy. I don’t think trying to undermine government but I don’t think we condemned Obama for going harshly against people who were disclosing information acting as if they were
The brother of slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich wrote a letter on Tuesday to the executive producer of Sean Hannity´s Fox News show pleading with him to find "decency and kindness" in his heart and stop spreading an unproven conspiracy theory about the unsolved murder. "Think about how you would feel losing a son or brother. And while dealing with this, you had baseless accusations of your lost family member being part of a vast conspiracy," Aaron Rich wrote in the letter to "Hannity" executive producer Porter Berry, a copy of which was provided to CNN. "As the family, we
A University of Hawaii assistant math professor who holds a PhD degree in mathematics from Princeton University has a new racist equation she wants to promote: white + man + job = her order for white males to quit or be demoted. Piper Harron wrote on a blog for the American Mathematical Society (AMS), titling her piece, “Get Out The Way.” Harron began with her demand: Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion. Statistically speaking, you are probably taking up room that should go to someone else.
Somebody, please explain to Jake Tapper about Arabs and the “strong horse.” Osama bin Laden explained it pretty economically years ago, but that’s a message that is difficult for liberals living in a fantasy world to grasp. After all, Barack Obama had a Muslim father, and he’s a “person of color” (one of the most annoying expressions in the English lexicon, casting Caucasians as colorless), so there must be some kumbayah, right? Jen Psaki, to whom Tapper asked his question, is in no position to explain, as she first tries to grab credit for the arms deal Trump just announced
Former FBI Director James Comey´s father says his son was fired because President Trump was "scared to death of him," according to CNN. J. Brien Comey spoke to CNN by phone on Saturday about his son´s dismissal as the nation´s top law enforcement officer. "[Comey] didn´t give him 100 percent loyalty, and he demands that of people who work with him," he said, according to CNN. "[Comey] said he would give 100 percent honesty, but not loyalty." "Why he was fired, I think, is Trump changes every day," he added. "He had three reasons three days in a row." Comey´s
