House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) said the Democrats would prioritize new gun control legislation and protecting illegal immigrants if they regain control of the House of Representatives after the midterms next month. Democrats will look to pass a gun background check bill and protect Dreamers, undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children, Pelosi told Politico.

Democratic pollster Anna Greenberg said in an interview that aired Tuesday on "What America's Thinking" that immigration has been politically weaponized in the U.S. ahead of November's midterm elections. "I don't think we're having a policy debate in this election. I think we're having a cultural debate," she said. She said that when it comes to immigration policy, people are fairly reasonable regardless of party. "The problem is it's weaponized politically, and so that makes it much harder to have an actual rational debate about it," she said. Seventy-five percent of Americans say they believe immigration, in general, is good...

The Hill ^ | 10/15/18 | JULIEGRACE BRUFKE
Left-leaning groups are advising Democratic candidates in the November midterm elections to steer clear from discussing immigration in states and districts that President Trump won in 2016. A strategy memo co-authored by the Center for American Progress and Third Way -- two Washington-based think tanks -- recommended that certain Democrats speak about the topic as little as possible and instead focus on topics that will better resonate with their voters. Navin Nayak, executive director of the Center for American Progress Action, said that even though the memo was sent to a broad set of districts, it excluded ones with large...

California’s family physicians are warning federal officials that a proposed change in immigration rules will put public health at risk because it weakens “herd” immunity, especially in the Golden State where one in every two children has a foreign-born parent.

Give Us The Wall: House GOP Plans Full Blown Legislative Assault On Illegal Immigration

Maybe there are three dividends that Republicans are reaping from their victory over liberals during the Brett Kavanaugh Supreme Court fight. The base is jacked up for the midterms, we confirmed Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court, giving conservatives a SCOTUS majority for the next generation, and it allowed the House GOP leadership to get some chutzpah on fighting illegal immigration. Yes, you read that, right? We’ve demanded a wall, going after sanctuary cities, securing the border, and enforcing current federal immigration laws. Now, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) pretty much promised full legislative offensive against illegal immigration (via CBS News): House...

Ann Coulter: ‘Constant Immigration’ Will Lead to ‘No Culture’ Across the Globe

Breitbart ^ | 10/9/2018
New York Times best-selling author and populist conservative columnist Ann Coulter says “constant immigration” to the United States and other countries will lead to “no difference” between countries and “no culture” around the world. During an interview on the Swedish television show Skavlan, Coulter said mass immigration to the U.S. makes the world less diverse, as countries begin to lose their culture and heritage. “I feel like I’m the only one who really wants diversity,” Coulter said. “If all we’re going to have is this constant churning and constant immigration, we’re all going to be … we’re all going to...

H-1B: As immigration furor roils Silicon Valley, Canada smoothes way for techies

San Jose Mercury ^ | October 8, 2018 | Ethan Baron
Two weeks: That’s how quickly a foreign technology worker in Silicon Valley can get an employment permit from Canada. In the U.S., that process takes months. As the administration of President Donald Trump has increased scrutiny of H-1B visas for skilled foreign workers and plans to ban their spouses from holding jobs in the U.S., Canada has been moving aggressively to suck top foreign talent out of Silicon Valley and other technology-rich regions of the U.S.

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell spoke out against President Donald Trump in an interview with CNN’s Fareed Zakaria on Sunday, blasting his anti-press rhetoric, the retreat from the world stage, and his insults of U.S. allies. Zakaria asked Powell and his other guest, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, about American foreign policy and whether the country is still leading the rest of the world by example. Powell, a Republican who has maintained a low profile during the Trump administration, called out “what we are not doing as the United States of America.” “What are we doing? We’re walking...

New Immigration Standard Called "Unfair" [semi-satire]

Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 30 Sep 2018 | John Semmens
The Trump Administration's new standard requiring immigrants seeking permanent residence to demonstrate they will not become welfare-dependent was assailed by top Democrats as "fundamentally unfair." The new rule would require that would-be new residents have the demonstrated ability to earn an income greater than 250% of the poverty level. Over the last five years more than 70% of immigrants from Latin America fell short of this standard. In contrast, more than 70% of immigrants from Asia met the standard. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) charged that "it is the height of selfishness for a rich country like America to...

Judge rules for Huntington Beach in its challenge to state's 'sanctuary' immigration law

LA Times ^ | 09/27/18 | Priscella Vega
An Orange County Superior Court judge determined Thursday that California’s “sanctuary state” protections for undocumented immigrants infringe on Huntington Beach’s local control as a charter city, making Huntington the first city to successfully challenge the controversial law. Senate Bill 54, authored by state Senate leader Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles), in many cases prohibits state and local police agencies from notifying federal officials about the impending release of immigrants in custody who may be deported. But after an hours-long courtroom debate Thursday, Judge James Crandall sided with Huntington Beach City Attorney Michael Gates’ argument that the law is unconstitutional as...

Sipping iced coffee with his wife at Tip Top Sandwiches in Little Saigon, Anh Quy reminisced about his early days in the United States. After American troops pulled out of South Vietnam in 1975, the U.S. government let refugees into the country and helped them establish lives in places such as Orange County. Quy felt welcome in his new home, but it’s a charity the 81-year-old wouldn’t extend to immigrants who come to the U.S. illegally.

Everyone who comes to America has a dream. But some of those dreams are good. And others are truly horrifying. Here's one DREAMER's dream. And a family's nightmare. An illegal immigrant from Mexico, accused of killing one person and injuring two others aboard a fishing vessel over the weekend, was reportedly allowed to stay in the U.S. as a DACA recipient. Fox News has exclusively learned that Franklin Freddy Meave Vazquez, 27, was an illegal alien in the U.S. until he was granted deferred action under the DACA program on Nov. 30, 2013. The program is aimed at children brought...

New Trump Rule Aims to Prevent Low Skilled, Welfare-Dependant Immigration
09/26/2018 5:46:00 PM PDT · by PFW · 12 replies ^
President Trump’s plan to stop the importation and permanent resettlement of welfare-dependent foreign nationals in the United States may significantly shift where legal immigrants to the country derive from. There is an estimated record high of 44.5 million foreign-born residents living in the United States. This is nearly quadruple the immigrant population in 2000. The vast majority are low-skilled, poor or working class foreign nationals. Trump’s new plan to save American taxpayers from the burden of paying for the welfare and public benefits of legal immigrants — where foreign nationals seeking to permanently resettle in the country may have to...

The Trump administration formally announced late Saturday a long-anticipated proposal to change a public rule to potentially favor legal immigrants in the United States who are applying for green cards and those applying to enter the country on visas who have not used or do not have plans to use public benefits, including Medicaid, food stamps, and public housing. “Under long-standing federal law, those seeking to immigrate to the United States must show they can support themselves financially,” Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen said in a statement. “This proposed rule will implement a law passed by Congress intended to promote...

To align with Trump's policy, immigration officials get more leeway to start deportation process

Miami Herald ^ | 7jul18 | By Daniel Shoer Roth
The Trump administration has expanded the list of categories for which immigrants can be sent before immigration judges to start deportation procedures against them. Measures announced Thursday by the Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will tighten the Department of Homeland Security's controls on immigrants, affecting not only undocumented foreigners but legal immigrants who lose their immigration benefits or status. The change is tied to Notices to Appear, a document issued to non-citizens instructing them to appear in immigration court. The NTAs normally mark the start of deportation procedures. A USCIS announcement said its officials will issue NTAs for a broader...

Illegal immigration creating monster trash crisis
09/20/2018 7:33:22 AM PDT · by rktman · 26 replies ^ | 9/20/2018 | Unknown
While anti-border wall activists see a coming eco-apocalypse, some border-wall proponents already see one caused by unchecked illegal immigration. The problems linked to illegal immigration have had much attention lately: the criminals and potential terrorists entering without permission, the young children needing care and workers taking jobs that Americans, in fact, would do. Then there’s the burden on taxpayers for all the social services as well as the possibility that lax state laws let them vote. Now a new one has begun getting attention: the millions of pounds of garbage left by those traveling through southwest America’s deserts illegally. “Perhaps...
