Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton announced Wednesday that she would create an Office of Immigrant Affairs if she was elected president.

After receiving an endorsement from what some consider New York’s most powerful labor group, SEIU Local 1199, and and immigrants’ rights group, the former secretary of state said this office would build on what President Barack Obama has done with immigration.

“I would create the first ever Office of Immigrant Affairs,” Clinton said. “It would build on the work of the Obama administration’s task force.”

The Boston Globe used its front page Sunday to imagine what it would look like if Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump won the White House.

Leading the front page (on its Global Ideas section) was a headline titled "Deportations To Begin" and was surrounded by articles of a failing stock market, a new libel law targeting the press, and worsening foreign relations.

The front page was accompanied by an editorial condemning Trump's remarks while also calling Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) a "dangerous" nominee.

Twenty-one people have been arrested after US authorities set up a fake university to expose immigration fraud.

Officials said the accused knew that the University of Northern New Jersey did not exist, but they were unaware it was a ruse run by immigration agents.

Donald Trump would force Mexico to pay for a border wall by threatening to cut off billions of dollars in remittances sent by immigrants living in the U.S., according to a memo released by his campaign Tuesday.

The memo outlines how Trump would try to compel Mexico to pay for a 1,000-mile wall if he becomes president.

The Republican-run U.S. House of Representatives voted Thursday along party lines to oppose President Obama's immigration reform plans and file a brief with the U.S. Supreme Court saying so.

The House brief will oppose the President in the case of U.S. vs. Texas. The Supreme Court is taking up whether Obama acted legally with plans to defer deporting as many as 5 million undocumented immigrants with deep, lengthy family ties in America.

Across the U.S. from Florida, to Nevada, to Illinois, to North Carolina, Latinos once content to carry green cards, now seek citizenship because when Trump teed off his presidential candidacy with “Mexico send rapists,” and this, “We’re gonna build the wall, who’s gonna build it? (crowd) Mexico!”

The federal government says naturalization applications jumped 14 and a half percent compared to the same six months last year. Many of those new voters are Latinos intent to stop Trump, showing up at these naturalization rives.

With his blunt remarks on immigration, real estate billionaire and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump might be leading the Republican race, but his pool of critics grow every single day – and it now includes an increasing number of fellow billionaires. Crossing bipartisan lines, billionaires like George Soros, Rupert Murdoch, Larry Ellison, Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg have all voiced their support for pro-immigration action, and some have even called out Trump.

Donald Trump’s presidential campaign may actually be empowering the Latino.

No, really. At least that’s what a number of non-profit organizations and even the White House are working toward.

Starting March 15th, 2016, USA Permanent Residents visiting or transiting through Canada by air will be required to have an eTA (Electronic Travel Authorization) prior to traveling.

Donald Trump, the billionaire real estate tycoon and frontrunner for the Republican nomination for the US Presidency, continues to make headlines for his extreme views on US immigration policy. His campaign has involved numerous attacks both on Muslims and Mexicans. This is despite needing illegal immigrant Mexicans to work at Trump construction sites and needing financial support from rich muslims. He has even criticized Pope Francis' visit to Mexico last week saying that 'he [the Pope] doesn't understand the Mexico-US immigration situation.'
