    NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - Two conservative U.S. appeals court judges expressed skepticism on Friday over arguments to lift an injunction blocking President Barack Obama's efforts to overhaul immigration law without congressional action. Administration lawyers were in court to ask a 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel to lift the injunction, issued in February by a federal judge in Texas, halting the president's executive action intended to shield 4.7 million undocumented immigrants from deportation.

    Explanation: Galactic or open star clusters are young. These swarms of stars are born together near the plane of the Milky Way, but their numbers steadily dwindle as cluster members are ejected by galactic tides and gravitational interactions. In fact, this bright open cluster, known as M46, is around 300 million years young. It still contains a few hundred stars within a span of 30 light-years or so. Located about 5,000 light-years away toward the constellation Puppis, M46 also seems to contain contradictions to its youthful status. In this pretty starscape, the colorful, circular patch above and right of the...

    Explanation: While most spiral galaxies, including our own Milky Way, have two or more spiral arms, NGC 4725 has only one. In this sharp color composite image, the solo spira mirabilis seems to wind from a prominent ring of bluish, newborn star clusters and red tinted star forming regions. The odd galaxy also sports obscuring dust lanes a yellowish central bar structure composed of an older population of stars. NGC 4725 is over 100 thousand light-years across and lies 41 million light-years away in the well-groomed constellation Coma Berenices. Computer simulations of the formation of single spiral arms suggest that...

They insist the current economy is unfair to low-wage workers.

    Daily Mail ^ | 4/17/15 | Wills Robinson
    Cameras placed along Texas' 1,200-mile border with Mexico have captured the stream of illegal immigrants sneaking into the country on a daily basis. The network of more than 1,000 motion detectors, similar to those used to film wildlife, have been placed strategically in areas that have not been secured - where Mexican citizens can cross and evade capture with ease. They helped border guards apprehend nearly 30,000 suspects and led to 88,400 pounds of drugs being seized in 2014 as part of Operation Drawbridge. The system has also had a significant impact on Mexican cartels and their ability to smuggle...

In February, Lynch was voted out of the committee and approved 12-8.

    On Friday in New Hampshire, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush said giving illegal immigrants a pathway to “earned legal status” is a “rational, thoughtful” way to deal with illegal immigrants in the country. Speaking at the Politics and Eggs breakfast, Bush, who said last year that illegal immigration is an “act of love,” proposed giving illegal immigrants provisional work permits after they pay taxes and fines and granting them legal status that they can “earn over an extended period of time.” Bush said that illegal immigrants should not earn citizenship, which will again bring up his waffling on the citizenship...

Gutiérrez in an introductory video. …

During her last presidential campaign, the former senator from New York was not so clear.In a 2007 Democratic presidential primary debate, the late Tim Russert asked Clinton if she supported then-New York Gov.

Under the headline “America Needs to Curb Immigration Flows,” Mr. Sessions, the chairman of the Senate Judiciary’s immigration subcommittee, argued the case for letting in fewer foreigners. Mr. Sessions, ditching the usual Republican talking points on immigration, choosing instead to echo an uglier time in our history, when nativists wielded the spurious argument that the more immigrants taken in by America, the worse off America is. He’s advocating for “slowing the pace” of legal immigration, supposedly to increase...

To be fair, he never told York categorically that he’d let Obama’s order stand if elected president. What he said was, “I cannot imagine a scenario where a future president is going to take away the status they’re going to get.” If you want to pretend that that’s meaningfully distinct from what Rubio would do as president himself, have at it. The best spin that can be put on this, I think, is that Rubio lied to York at the time...

    The administration has granted about 541,000 Social Security numbers to illegal immigrants under President Obama’s original 2012 deportation amnesty for Dreamers, officials told Congress in a letter made public Wednesday. That means almost all of the illegal immigrants approved for the amnesty are being granted work permits and Social Security numbers, opening the door to government benefits ranging from tax credits to driver’s licenses. Social Security officials, in the April 10 letter to Sens. Jeff Sessions and Ben Sasse, said they don’t keep track of how many illegal immigrants have been denied numbers, and defended their process for granting the...

The ACLU is suing the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to obtain documents that it claims show that Catholic relief agencies are not providing abortions or referrals for abortion. It’s part of a national strategy to force faith-based facilities to perform abortions or face ruinous litigation and the loss of government contracts, and it comes despite the Supreme Court’s ruling last June against the ham-handed...

    As the Obama administration prepares for a new surge of illegal immigrant children this year, some of those from previous waves are turning up on court dockets across the country, charged with serious crimes such as capital murder and aggravated rape. The cases are exposing many of the holes in the immigration system and the way the U.S. has tried to grapple with children fleeing economic troubles, domestic abuse or gang violence in Central America — and sometimes bringing those very troubles to the U.S. with them. “The eagerness of the administration to open our borders is not without consequence,”...
  • Amnesty Marco Rubio’s Top Liability(As it should be)

    Amnesty is still the top liability for Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), who officially entered the 2016 race on Monday. In 2013, Rubio was the face of the Senate’s “Gang of Eight” comprehensive amnesty bill. The Congressional Budget Office determined that Rubio’s legislation, which would give nearly every illegal immigrant in America a pathway to citizenship while massively increasing legal immigration to unprecedented levels, would lower the wages of American workers. After championing the Gang of Eight bill that passed the Senate, Rubio’s poll numbers plummeted. He remained silent on the issue and refused to join the other “Gang of Eight”...

    One of the key issues in the 2016 presidential campaign is certain to be how the candidates propose to deal with illegal immigration, from border security to the treatment of undocumented individuals already in the United States. The question of immigration reform has particular salience to the large and growing Latino electorate, a group that leans heavily Democratic and makes up an important part of the coalition of voters that a Democratic candidate needs to assemble in a winning run for the White House. Right now, that candidate seems likely to be Hillary Clinton, who officially announced her presidential run...

    (CNSNews.com) - There was a bit of show and tell Tuesday on Capitol Hill, when Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director Sarah Saldana told the House Judiciary Committee about her department’s efforts to enforce immigration law while also following the more lenient policies outlined by Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson last November. "We have actually put out real substantial training on this, sir," Saldana told Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.). "And every officer uses one of these cards, which clearly outlines those priorities." Saldana held up one of the cards. "And quite frankly, I carry it myself -- and try to make...

    ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector. The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same...

    “Well, I don’t know about others, but I’ve done more immigration than Hillary Clinton ever did,” Rubio said in an interview with NPR News released Tuesday. “I mean, I helped pass an immigration bill in a Senate dominated by Democrats. And that’s more than she’s ever done. She’s given speeches on it, but shes never done anything on it,” the Florida senator said. “We still need to do immigration reform … and I think the American people are willing to do that and not until they know that future immigration is under control,” Rubio told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Monday....

    BEIRUT (AP) — An international aid group has called on the United States to resettle 65,000 Syrian refugees before the end of 2016. David Miliband, the President and CEO of the International Rescue Committee, tells The Associated Press that the whole international community shares responsibility for the consequences of the Syrian civil war. Miliband, a former U.K. Foreign Secretary, says the U.S. has traditionally taken half the world's registered refugees who resettle in third countries and that the United Nations says it wants 130,000 refugees from Syria resettled in the wealthier countries of the world by the end of 2016....

    President Obama and Democrats have decided to cater to anyone and everyone except Americans President Obama in a recent interview, admitted that he would pass his agenda items by “hook or by crook.” Was he just waving the green flag to all Democrats to do whatever is necessary to win and in turn, further the liberal agenda? This seems to be the new platform for the Democrats. If you can’t accomplish it on your own steam and through the proper channels, then lie, cheat, and steal to get it done. By “hook or by crook!” Mayor Bill DeBlasio, Mayor of...

    Federal district court judge Andrew Hanen slammed the Obama administration with a solid one-two punch late last night. In one order, he refused to lift the preliminary injunction barring implementation of the president’s immigration amnesty plan. In a second order, Hanen said that the “attorneys for the Government misrepresented the facts” about the implementation to the court. On February 23, the Justice Department filed a “Motion to Stay” the injunction pending an appeal to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Hanen denied that motion, saying not only that his original ruling was correct, but that subsequent events had “reinforced”...

    While the debate over amnesty rages, the U.S. already expects to admit 10 million new legal immigrants on a path to citizenship over the next decade — more than the population of seven large American cities combined.At the current rate, the influx of legal immigrants over the next ten years will exceed the total populations of Los Angeles, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Boston, Atlanta and St. Louis combined, according to federal data compiled by Alabama Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions’ office.The U.S. offers green cards to about 1 million new legal permanent residents each year. Over the past five years, the Department of Homeland Security has issued 5.25 million...

    Health care coverage for the undocumented gets its first test this week when a bill to extend Medi-Cal coverage and Covered California health plans to the undocumented will be heard by the Senate Health committee. A number of legislative efforts to help the undocumented comprise the "Immigrants Shape California" legislative package introduced last week by the Legislature's leadership. The bill would provide Medi-Cal benefits to undocumented Californians who are income-eligible for it and require the state to ask for a federal waiver to include the undocumented in Covered California health plans. The undocumented population currently is ineligible for any state...

    The Tuition Equality Act of 2013 was supposed to help young people convert their noblest aspirations into practical realities. Particularly the so-called DREAMers: At last, higher education would be within the reach of these undocumented immigrants, thanks to a prudent government decision which allowed them to pay in-state tuition rates. But it has turned out to be a false promise and phony premise. Gov. Christie vetoed the part of the law that would have granted these unauthorized students the same financial aid received by other New Jersey students, so most of them are out of luck - and in a...
