A sampling of news stories and commentary related to illegal immigrants and illegal immigration:

  • The first defendant convicted in the brutal 2007 New Jersey schoolyard slayings got a life sentence today.  The Associated Press story can be found here.  What the AP story doesn’t include is that the “immigrant” is actually an illegal immigrant from Nicaragua with ties to the notorious violent MS-13 gang.  Michelle Malkin has covered the story previously
  • Donations to Governor Brewer’s SB-1070 defense fund have surged since the Department of Justice announced the filing of its lawsuit against Arizona’s new anti-illegal immigration law.  To date the fund has reached $500,000.  If you’d like to donate to Arizona’s defense fund you can contribute at
  • Governor Brewer is getting heat from the governors of neighboring states after she canceled an annual meeting of the state governors along the Mexico and U.S. border.  Six governors from Mexico told Brewer they would not attend the meeting if it remained, as scheduled, in Arizona.  After the the Mexican governors complained about the planned location of the meeting, Brewer cancelled it.  Now the governors of California and New Mexico are complaining, stating that Brewer doesn’t have the authority to cancel the meeting. Brewer says she’s fine with it being hosted somewhere else and her attendance would depend on the exact location.
