More than 179,000 illegal immigrants convicted of committing crimes, including violent ones, continue to roam free across the United States, with reports indicating that these illegal immigrants commit new crimes “every day,” according to lawmakers and the director of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, also known as ICE.

Sarah Saldana, ICE’s director, disclosed to Congress on Wednesday that the agency is apprehending and removing fewer illegal immigrants than in past years.

Somewhere around 179,029 “undocumented criminals with final orders of removal” from the United States currently remain at large across the country and are essentially untraceable, according to Sen.Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, who disclosed these numbers during a Wednesday hearing.

The total number of criminal illegal aliens in the United States is in the millions.

Houston voters defeated a closely-watched gay rights ordinance on Election Day. It would have established nondiscrimination protections for gay and transgender people in the city. (AP)

Houston’s Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO), designed to protect the rights of gay citizens and others, has failed by a wide margin — after a hard-fought campaign in which opponents warned it would give male sexual predators access to women’s bathrooms.

On Tuesday, Houston voters were presented with this question: “Are you in favor of the Houston Equal Rights Ordinance, Ord. No. 2014-530, which prohibits discrimination in city employment and city services, city contracts, public accommodations, private employment, and housing based on an individual’s sex, race, color, ethnicity, national origin, age, familial status, marital status, military status, religion, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, gender identity, or pregnancy?”

When I arrived in New York City 28 years ago to begin my national radio program, my objective was to have the most-listened-to show in the country. At that time, the national broadcast media included three television networks and CNN. That was it. There were 125 radio stations doing talk radio, and I started on 56 of them. No one had ever succeeded in syndicating a national daytime radio show, and I was predicted to fail, too.
But I didn’t. What was different about my show was that I was the only conservative voice in national broadcast media. I was it — just as National Review was the only major conservative magazine being published and read.

President Barack Obama believes America is safer since he became president, he could win a third term and Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is a "great publicity-seeker" who will not win the White House.

Speaking in a pretaped "60 Minutes" interview that aired Sunday, Obama told Steve Kroft that while he believes Trump has tapped into genuine discontent among "at least Republican primary voters" the real-estate mogul won't be sitting in the Oval Office at the end of the election cycle.

"Well, I think that he is a great publicity-seeker and at a time when the Republican party hasn't really figured out what it's for, as opposed to what it's against. I think that he is tapped into something that exists in the Republican party that's real," said Obama when asked to share his thoughts on the candidate by Kroft.

"I think there is genuine anti-immigrant sentiment in the large portion of at least Republican primary voters. I don't think it's uniform. He knows how to get attention. He is, you know, the classic reality TV character and, at this early stage, it's not surprising that he's gotten a lot of attention," he added.

When asked if he thought Trump was "running out of steam" or if he thinks the billionaire is "going to disappear" Obama said: "You know, I'll leave it up to the pundits to make that determination. I don't think he'll end up being president of the United States."
