    More than 100 people, including 2 young children, thought to be illegal immigrants from Mexico have been discovered living in a squalid suspected "stash house" outside of Houston. Police raided the single-family home and found people reportedly sitting on top of one another and surrounded by "filthy" conditions that included trash bags piled high and overflowing with old clothing, a mattress on the floor, just one bathroom with a partially working toilet, and absolutely no hot water. In addition to finding 94 men who were dressed in their undergarments with no shoes on, cops also discovered 15 women -- including a 24-year-old who is pregnant and has a 7-year-old girl and 5-year-old boy -- lying around in several small rooms.

    Cinthya Garcia-Cisneros is a 19-year-old woman from Oregon whose entire world may be turned upside down because of a horrible accident she caused and then a bad judgment call on her part. While driving her SUV in October, she pummeled through a huge leaf pile and accidentally struck and killed stepsisters Anna Dieter-Eckerdt, who was 6, and 11-year-old Abigail Robinson. The girls were playing at the time and were totally concealed by the foliage, according to reports. The incident was said to be an accident, but what happened next wasn't -- and it's the entire reason why Cinthya deserves to be deported back to Mexico.

    People try all kinds of crazy ways to get into the United States, but a recent border patrol photo of a Thai woman stuffed into a suitcase may be among the most depressing and weirdest. If you look to the left, you will see the woman, a Thai national named Pornkamol Mongkolsermsak, who was charged with re-entry after deportation.

    For some people, it might be a photo of people fighting a good fight and they might be glad she was found when she was. But I see something else. I see a woman so desperate to stay in the US that she would do anything to do so. Can you imagine how long she was going to be expected to endure those cramped conditions.

    It's just sad. Whatever you feel about immigration, it's hard to not have compassion for a woman like that.

    Milton Tepeyac spent eight years as a United States Marine, fighting for America. Now he's stuck in Mexico and can't come home because the United States deported him.

    Turns out years before Milton enlisted in the military to fight for his country, he was brought to America as a toddler ... illegally. His parents were Mexican immigrants. Illegal immigrants.

    Did you know the United States military allows illegal immigrants to enlist?

    Did you know that people who are considered good enough to fight for our nation aren't considered good enough for citizenship?

    I'm not sure who belongs on the naughty list here more! A judge in Ohio has ordered that a woman named Betina Young, who was convicted of a driver's licence scam involving illegal immigrants, spend the next five Christmases in jail. That's right -- only the three days or so surrounding December 25th, for the next five years. The rest of the time, she's free. Say what? How is that even legal?!

    Now, I know what you're thinking...

    It’s now racist to be patriotic? What the ... ? Four California high school students were recently reprimanded for wearing American flag bandanas and chanting “U.S.A.! U.S.A.!” at a school basketball game. They were reportedly suspended, and while the punishment was rescinded, school officials said, “The incident is far from over.”

    Camarillo High School principal Glenn Lipman worried that the chanting might have racist undertones due to the southern California school’s large Hispanic population. Oxnard Union School District superintendent Gabe Soumakian told Fox News, “We need to pursue this further” and “work with teachers and students and the community about the concept of cultural proficiency.”

    The State of the Union Address 2013 was on tonight, but if you missed it, have no fear -- I’m here to recap it for you. It can be hard to keep everything the president says straight, especially when he says things that directly contradict with other things he’s said or done in the past. So just for fun, let’s take some of his best lines of the night and match them up against his record, shall we?

    There were too many shady statements to mention them all here or I’d bore you as silly as if you had actually watched the speech. For the sake of brevity, let’s just go over the top 13 things he said that made me snicker, guffaw, or face-palm.

    Is Rush Limbaugh going soft or sensible on immigration reform? The controversial talk radio host seems to have changed his tune after talking to 2016 GOP presidential hopeful Marco Rubio on his program this earlier this week.

    On Monday, as a group of eight legislators hit Capitol Hill to propose new immigration measures, Limbaugh lambasted the idea. "We've done this before. We've done amnesty before," he said. "This immigration bill that everybody's touting on TV today is essentially the Bush immigration bill that was beat back in 2007."

    Anything defined as a "sex slavery cult" must, by definition, be a pretty twisted organization (for lack of a better word), but the sex slavery cult recently broken up along the U.S. border by Mexican officials sounds especially twisted. The name alone is a pretty big tip-off: "Defensores de Cristo." Translation? Defenders of Christ. Yeah, exactly. The group allegedly recruited women and brainwashed them into having sex with a man who claimed to be the reincarnation of Christ.

    And what police found when they raided a home in Nuevo Laredo (near the Texas border) proves something incredibly twisted was going on indeed -- women and children living in "deplorable conditions."

    What kind of person listens to CNN commentator Piers Morgan talk about gun control and then signs a petition to have him deported? Quick answer: An idiot. Plain and simple. Unfortunately, about 60,000 of those signed a petition to deport the host of Piers Morgan Tonight back to his native England for his comments on gun control.

    Last week Morgan called guest Larry Pratt, the executive director of Guns Owners for America, "dangerous" and "an unbelievably stupid man." The exchange was heated (and hilarious), but it was also Morgan's opinion. Something he has the right to have. Yes, even as a British national.

    In fact, Morgan's comments are protected under the First Amendment unless they're actually dangerous to our country. Let's face it, even though people are whining about gun control like they're losing their babies, it's not going to kill them. See below:
