Immigrants Now Searching for U.S. Border Patrol instead of Evading

The New York Times reports, “Number of Migrants Illegally Crossing Rio Grande Rises Sharply.” The numbers of migrants crossing the Rio Grande illegally have risen sharply in recent weeks, replaying scenes from the influx of Central American children and families in South Texas last year. Once again, smugglers are bringing hundreds of women and children each day to the Mexican banks of the river and sending them across in rafts. In a season when illegal crossings normally go down, “The numbers Read more […]

Hillary Clinton Advocates Lawlessness: No Illegal Immigrants

Hillary Clinton could advocate a variety of positions on immigration that, while they might be wrong and dangerous, would not necessarily be lawless. But she has wholly committed herself to pretending that current laws don’t exist and we must never mention that people have broken those laws. Yahoo Politics reports, “Clinton promises never to say ‘illegal immigrants’ again.” Hillary Clinton addressed criticism of her use of the phrase “illegal immigrants” in a Facebook chat hosted by Read more […]

DHS Caught Planning to Ignore Court Orders to Obey Immigration Law

The Daily Signal reports, “Leaked DHS Memo Reveals Attempt to Skirt Immigration Law; Senate Republicans Demand Explanation.” Senate Republicans are asking the Department of Homeland Security to explain a leaked agency memo reportedly revealing that federal officials are planning to evade a federal court order barring pieces of President Barack Obama’s executive immigration actions. Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, led eight others on the committee in a letter sent to DHS Secretary Read more […]

Was Barack Obama Ever Really Going to Enforce Immigration Laws?

The promise to enforce immigration laws was key to the campaign for “comprehensive immigration reform.” But it was a lie. As you may have heard, deportations are way down. Not only are general deportations not happening, but even criminals are getting to stay in the country rather than face deportation. Mark Krikorian writes at the National Review, The operational reason for the collapse in deportations is the Obama administration’s enforcement-suppression policies, which it has labeled Read more […]

Democrat Wants People in the Country Illegally to Get Obamacare

Representative Luis Gutiérrez has introduced a bill to make illegal immigrants eligible for Obamacare. The hypocrisy involved in all this is staggering. According to the Daily Signal, “House Democrats Propose Illegal Immigrants Gain Access to Obamacare.” The pope’s reminder of the Golden Rule during his visit to Congress inspired a House Democrat to introduce legislation to expand the Affordable Care Act. Last week Rep. Luis Gutiérrez, D-Ill., introduced new legislation called the Read more […]

Elites, Immigrants, and the Economy: Why Donald Trump is Winning

Donald Trump is winning because people think he cares about their economic plight. The Washington Post’s Wonkblog posted a provocative piece headlined, “Why Donald Trump Is Winning.” The writers lead off by claiming that “deep economic anxiety” is attracting voters to Donald Trump. A CBS poll this week showed more than 7 in 10 Republican voters are confident in Trump’s economic decisions, well above any other Republican candidate.  In my opinion, though Trump is unquestionably Read more […]

Over a Half Million Illegal Aliens Have Social Security Numbers

These illegal aliens qualify for social security, including social security disability benefits. CNS News reports on the Obama White House: “Administration Gave Social Security Numbers to 541,000 Illegal Aliens.” Social Security numbers (SSNs) were given to 541,000 illegal aliens, according to Carolyn Colvin, acting commissioner of the Social Security Administration (SSA). In a March 12 letter, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) had asked SSA: “How many individuals have applied for SSNs as a result Read more […]

Judge Rules against Amnesty and Says Lawyers Misled Him

Government lawyers misled a judge? What are the odds? One of the great things reported by the Washington Times is that a judge took note that President Obama had threatened Federal workers if they followed the court order. President Obama’s new deportation amnesty will remain halted, a federal judge in Texas ruled Tuesday night in an order that also delivered a judicial spanking to the president’s lawyers for misleading the court. Judge Andrew S. Hanen, who first halted the amnesty in February, Read more […]

Immigration Executive Order Allows Man to Stay and Kill Three?

A suspect in three homicides was still in the U.S. because of Barack Obama’s immigration executive order that allowed him to avoid deportation. Back in February we heard about the murder of a former contestant on the TV show America’s Next Top Model.  According to the Associated Press: Emmanuel Jesus Rangel-Hernandez, 19, has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the death of Mirjana Puhar, 19, and two other victims, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police in North Carolina said Read more […]

IRS Gouges Citizens and Gives Tax Refunds to Illegals

How can people who never paid taxes get tax refunds? They can and the IRS is not backing down. Yet another consequence of President Barack Obama’s executive order for amnesty has come to light. According to the Washington Times: “IRS defends paying refunds to illegals who never filed taxes.” The IRS is defending its decision to let illegal immigrants claim up to three years’ refunds on income even if they never paid income taxes, telling Congress in a new letter last week that Read more […]

Obama Seeking Emergency Court Order to Restore Amnesty

An emergency court order could process illegal immigrants and thus make it harder to enforce an overturn of the executive overreach. The Executive Branch, including the Department of Justice, wants an emergency court order. What do you think are the chances they won’t get one? I understand that the Obama Administration disagrees with the judge’s ruling. But what makes that an emergency? Why not simply appeal the decision and argue in court? What is the need for an immediate suspension of Read more […]

John Boehner Does Right on Funding DHS

Congress has done their job funding DHS and defunding Obama’s executive orders. The Senate needs to get on board. I am not a big fan of John Boehner, quite the opposite. But compared to Mitch McConnell he seems rather steadfast. On the issue of risking a “shutdown” of the Department of Homeland Security, Boehner is saying that he will not compromise. According to CNN, “House, Senate GOP spar over DHS funding.” The story reports on Boehner’s appearance on Fox News Sunday: “The Read more […]
