Thousands of Somali refugees have settled in Minnesota since the start of the devastating civil war in their home country began in 1991. These Somalis fled their homeland to get away from the turmoil there and live in peace.

CNS News has made a startling discovery about some of the services that are available to illegal alien unaccompanied minors. Health and Human Service’s Office of Refuge Resettlement (ORR) confirmed to CNS that abortion is one of the emergency medical services that are required to be made available by federally funded caregivers of Unaccompanied Children (UC) who have been sexually assaulted and have become pregnant.
The Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is extending eligibility for employment authorization to some dependent spouses of H-1B nonimmigrants who are seeking employment-based lawful permanent resident (LPR) status.
Though President Obama said at a February 17 press conference that he disagreed with U.S. District Judge Andrew S. Hanen’s ruling the previous day that temporarily blocked his plans to grant amnesty to four million illegal aliens — and that the Justice Department would appeal the decision — any appeals will likely take months to go through the federal courts.

Senator Ted Cruz said the Obama administration has gone beyond using “prosecutorial discretion” to enforce immigration law, and is “counterfeiting immigration documents.”
