Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio sat down at ABC15 to talk about the new changes by the Obama administration to stop deporting younger illegal immigrants. The announcement came in around 6:30 a.m. Friday that some illegal immigrants will be granted work permits if they meet certain requirements. "I think people from Mexico are now going to feel, 'Hey come on in and we'll get by with it.' But it won't happen in this county. They will still be arrested," Arpaio said.
An anonymous group calling itself Concerned Citizens for the United States has distributed a detailed list (names, addresses, Social Security numbers, and birthdays) of 1,300 alleged illegal immigrants including 200 children and at least six pregnant women to local authorities and media outlets. Demanding, "Do your job and stop making excuses! We demand action." The group claims the names on the list all belong to illegal immigrants and demands that deportation proceedings for them start immediately.
This debunks the theory that immigrants want to take over the US with their numbers:
"It is widely believed that most immigrants support high immigration levels. Political parties in particular buy into this assumption, assuming that bringing in large numbers of newcomers will increase their support among ethnic voters. Research in the United States, however, suggests that this is a mistaken premise and that immigrants think immigration levels should be lowered."
The cost of harboring illegal immigrants in the United States is a staggering $113 billion a year -- an average of $1,117 for every “native-headed” household in America -- according to a study conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).
The study, a copy of which was provided to FoxNews.com, “is the first and most detailed look at the costs of illegal immigration ever done,” says Bob Dane, director of communications at FAIR, a conservative organization that seeks to end almost all immigration to the U.S.
In a controversial case that involved the rights of illegal immigrants and their young children, a Guatemalan mother lost her effort today to get back the five-year old son who was taken away from her after her arrest on immigration charges and put up for adoption in Missouri despite her objections.
