So just to be clear, when HuffPo says “80% Of Central American Women, Girls Are Raped Crossing Into The U.S.” it’s ok, but when Donald Trump says it he’s a Racist?

As the number of Central American women and girls crossing into the U.S. continues to spike, so is the staggering amount of sexual violence waged against these migrants who are in search of a better life.

According to a stunning Fusion investigation, 80 percent of women and girls crossing into the U.S. by way of Mexico are raped during their journey. That’s up from a previous estimate of 60 percent, according to an Amnesty International report.

This year alone, immigration authorities expect more than 70,000 unaccompanied minors to come through the United States unlawfully, the majority of whom are from Central American countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. The number of unaccompanied Central American girls caught at the Southwest border has rapidly outpaced the number boys, according to a July Pew Research study.

Illegal Aliens Disrupt Ann Coulter Book Signing, Author Fires Back

COSTA MESA, CA – Political commentator and author Ann Coulter was signing copies of her new book Adios America: The Left’s Plan to Turn our Country into a Third World Hellhole at a Barnes and Noble Tuesday night when the calm was shattered by protesters inside the store.

As dozens of fans waited their turn to have a book signed, several people rose from the tables in the adjacent Starbucks and began bellowing slogans:

“Undocumented, unafraid!” they yelled. “Ain’t no power like the power of the people ’cause the power of the people don’t stop!”

The protesters inside the store, unfurled a large banner reading “Adios, Ann Coulter,” and brandished Mexican and anarchist flags. Some approached the front of the line and attempted to confront Coulter, but were rebuffed by security guards.

“Go back to Europe, Ann Coulter!” one particularly vocal man screamed. “When our communities are under attack, what do we do? Fight back!”

The guests waiting in line, including some young children, mostly ignored the protesters. Some defiantly held up copies of their signed books.

The furor did not seem to faze Coulter, who cheerfully signed books and posed for photographs with her fans.

After getting escorted out of the store by security, the protesters reconvened outside the entrance, shouting “Shame on you!” to those who walked out holding a copy of Coulter’s book. At one point, the group ripped up a copy of the book, littering the space outside the store with paper.

“Don’t have kids! Don’t have kids!” one of the protesters screamed at an older couple exiting the store.

“You have to understand,” Coulter told Breitbart News, “screaming and defacing things is how Latin Americans express disagreement. At least as long as they were destroying books and screaming in a book store, they weren’t molesting any 4-year-olds.”

Coulter appeared on Fox News’ The Kelly File on Tuesday morning, where she discussed some of the more important points in her book.

“Immigration is a government policy like any other and it ought to be used to benefit the people already living here. That includes recent immigrants,” Coulter said. “There should not be any criminals coming in.”

Europe migrant crisis: 137,000 migrants enter Europe in first six months of 2015

Published on Jul 2, 2015

GENEVA, SWITZERLAND — The number of migrants fleeing war and persecution in their homelands for Europe reached a record high in the first six months of the year, according to UNHCR, the United Nation’s refugee agency.

In the first six months of the year to June, a total of 137,000 people arrived in Europe, an increase of 83 percent from 2014 when 75,000 people made the crossing.

Of the migrants arriving in Italy and Greece, one third of them were from Syria, with the next largest groups arriving from Afghanistan and Eritrea.

The international response to the migrant crisis has had a huge impact on the number of deaths, with drownings dropping from a peak of 1,308 in April to 68 in May and just 12 in June.

UNHCR also noted a change in the pattern of migration, with the numbers travelling from Turkey to Greece now overtaking those traveling to Italy from north Africa.

Spanish speakers in America: U.S. now world’s 2nd-largest Spanish-speaking country

Published on Jul 1, 2015

WASHINGTON — The United States is now home to more Spanish speakers than Spain, according to a recent report by the Instituto Cervantes.

There are 41 million native Spanish speakers in the U.S., as well as another 12 million bilingual English and Spanish speakers, bringing the total number of Spanish speakers in the U.S. to 52 million.

This population of 52 million is now greater than the population of Spain and of Colombia, and is second to Mexico, which has a population of 121 million. The U.S.’s Spanish-speaking population is expected to grow to 138 million by 2050 and surpass Mexico’s population, which will make the U.S. the largest Spanish-speaking nation in the world.

The U.S. states with the largest Hispanic or Latino populations are New Mexico, California, Texas and Arizona, whose Hispanic populations amount to 47 percent, 38 percent, 38 percent and 30 percent, respectively.

US now has more Spanish speakers than Spain – research

The United States now the world’s second-largest Spanish-speaking community, after Mexico, according to the latest study by the Instituto Cervantes.

A total of 41 million native Spanish speakers live in the US, and there are also 11.6 million other bilingual speakers.
In Colombia and Spain, there are 48 and 46 million native Spanish and bilingual speakers, respectively.

Mexico has roughly as many as all three countries combined, with 121 million Spanish native speakers.

Of the states inside the US, New Mexico has 47 percent native Spanish speakers, while California and Texas both have 38 percent, and Arizona has 30 percent.

In New York, the population is about 18 percent native Spanish-speaking.

It has been predicted that the US will have as many as 128 million Spanish speakers by 2060 – about 30 percent of the population with Spanish as their mother tongue, according to a study by the US Census Office.

Worldwide, almost 470 million people have Spanish as their native language, while potential users (those who speak Spanish as their second language or a foreign language) are about 559 million, the Instituto Cervantes report, titled “Spanish, a living language,” says.

The Instituto Cervantes (Cervantes Institute) was founded in 1991 to promote the Spanish language and culture abroad, with 200,000 students registered for their language courses currently.

Globally, 21 million people learn Spanish as a foreign language, with learners in the US totaling about 7.8 million.

The Index of Human Development ranks Spanish it as the world’s second most important language, behind English, but ahead of Mandarin.

It also accounts for about 8 percent of Internet traffic, and is the third most widely used language online. On Facebook, it is the second most used language worldwide.

NBC, Employer of Brian Williams and Al Sharpton, Finds Trump Offensive and Cuts Ties

Capture

Sure, he’s the problem.

NBC is cutting ties with Donald Trump.

The network is “ending its business relationship” with Trump over his “recent derogatory statements” regarding immigrants, the company said in a statement Monday.

“To that end, the annual Miss USA and Miss Universe Pageants, which are part of a joint venture between NBC and Trump, will no longer air on NBC,” the statement continued.

Welcome to 2015 America, where dissent is punished but a tax dodging riot instigator and a national news anchor who is a pathological liar are embraced as valued employees. Diversity of thought will not be tolerated.

On Trump’s worst days, he is a grating blowhard. He can also be quite entertaining, which is why I suspect so many welcome his candidacy (think Joe Biden but with accomplishments). As someone who has spent his entire life in relatively close proximity to the Mexican border, I can honestly say that Trump’s comments that caused this brouhaha are the sanest, most accurate political remarks he has ever made. The only reason he is being taken to task by NBC is because he deviated from the progressive groupthink orthodoxy to which American media long ago found the right to marry.

In its eagerness to remain accepted by the hive mind, NBC has also thrown all of the Miss USA and Miss Universe pageant contestants under the bus. Fox News contributor and 2013 Miss New York USA winner Joanne Nosuchinsky jumped right in on Twitter to hit back at the network:

SUPREMES: STATES CAN’T FORCE VOTERS TO PROVE CITIZENSHIP

BY SIMONE PATHE

Monday’s big election law news came from the Supreme Court’s penultimate decision of the term upholding Arizona’s congressional districts.

But before handing down its last three decisions, the court made voting-rights advocates happy by deciding not to review a different election case.

“Arizona citizens can continue to participate in voter registration drives without worrying about not having proof of citizenship documents,” Shirley Sandelands, of the League of Women Voters of Arizona, said in a statement Monday.

The case, Kobach, et al. v. Election Assistance Commission, et al., was about whether Arizona and Kansas could require voters to prove their citizenship when registering to vote with the so-called “federal form.” Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach led the suit against the U.S. Election Assistance Commission, which was an appeal of a lower court decision.

Both Kansas and Arizona have state laws that require applicants to prove their citizenship when applying to vote with state forms (for state or federal elections). But the U.S. EAC denied the states’ requests to have their citizenship laws applied when would-be voters use the standardized federal form.

The Supreme Court had already ruled in 2013 that state proof-of-citizenship laws couldn’t be applied when people try to register with the federal form. The states’ direct request to the EAC was a last-ditch effort to get around that.

By not hearing the case, the Supreme Court effectively upheld the decision of the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled against Arizona and Kansas in November 2014, saying the EAC did not have to modify its form to meet state laws. Under the federal form, would-be voters need only swear under penalty of perjury that they are citizens.

“This is a very big deal,” University of California Irvine Law Professor Rick Hasen wrote on his election law blog Monday. “Kobach had the potential to shift more power away from the federal government in administering elections toward the states,” he added.

In a joint statement, the League of Women Voters of Arizona and Kansas and the Brennan Center for Justice praised the court for “reaffirming the important role Congress plays in preserving a fair voter registration process across the country.” The LWV, represented by the Brennan Center and several law firms, was a defendant in the case with the EAC.

“This is an important win for the National Voter Registration Act and an important step forward in making sure that all that are eligible are registered to vote,” President of the League of Women Voters of the U.S. Elisabeth MacNamara said in a statement.

But Kobach still hopes states’ authority will be recognized.

“Our position in court is that we’re exercising our state’s right to define the qualifications of electors,” Kobach told CQ Roll Call Monday afternoon. “By creating this loophole, the federal agency is interfering,” he said in reference to the EAC.

Kobach emphasized the court’s decision not to review the case does not reflect its opinion on the issues of the case.

“The Supreme Court decision not to review was not particularly surprising given the fact that there was no circuit split yet,” the secretary of state said.

Typically, Kobach continued, “the Supreme Court favors reviewing decisions where one circuit has gone one way and another circuit has gone another way. It appears that the Supreme Court is waiting for another circuit to weigh in.” He expects the 11th circuit, which he said has jurisdiction over two states with similar proof-of-citizenship laws, to eventually get involved.

The Kansas and Arizona laws stand, meaning that people wishing to register to vote with state forms are required to show proof of citizenship. Kobach said more than 99 percent of Kansans use the state forms. “But because of the Supreme Court decision not to review the case,” he added, “we do have a small limited loophole.” The slim majority that uses the federal form can “refuse to provide proof of citizenship,” he said, “but that will only suffice for federal elections.”

Kobach said he’ll be sending another request to the EAC, but that that request will be presented differently from the state’s previously denied request.

“Every time an alien votes, it may not steal an election, but it will cancel out a vote of a U.S. citizen,” Kobach said.
