  • Another Arizona immigration law dismantled by the courts

    06/01/2015 1:25:32 PM PDT · by Olog-hai · 24 replies
    Associated Press ^ | Jun 1, 2015 4:03 PM EDT | Jacques Billeaud
    The U.S. Supreme Court landed the final blow against an Arizona law that denied bail to immigrants who are in the country illegally and are charged with certain felonies, marking the latest in a series of state immigration policies that have since been thrown out by the courts. The nation’s highest court on Monday rejected a bid from metro Phoenix’s top prosecutor and sheriff to reinstate the 2006 law after a lower appeals court concluded late last year that it violated civil rights by imposing punishment before trial. While a small number of Arizona’s immigration laws have been upheld, the...
  • How Eisenhower solved illegal border crossings from Mexico

    Christian Science Monitor ^ | July 6, 2006 | John Dillin
    Fifty-three years ago, when newly elected Dwight Eisenhower moved into the White House, America's southern frontier was as porous as a spaghetti sieve. As many as 3 million illegal migrants had walked and waded northward over a period of several years for jobs in California, Arizona, Texas, and points beyond. President Eisenhower cut off this illegal traffic. He did it quickly and decisively with only 1,075 United States Border Patrol agents – less than one-tenth of today's force. Years later, the late Herbert Brownell Jr., Eisenhower's first attorney general, said in an interview with this writer that the president had...

    A recent study in the US by three economists – Kirk Doran of the University of Notre Dame in Indiana, Alexander Gelber of the University of California, Berkeley, and Adam Isen of the office of tax analysis at the US department of the treasury – has found that H-1B visas do not lead to any significant increase in the number of patents and nor do they result in any significant job creation in America. The findings of this study contradict many highlights of earlier reports, including one by big IT companies which was discussed at the US congress last month....

Jeb Bush came out in defense of the PATRIOT Act, currently under debate in Congress, according to Knox News: -snip- Bush also seemed to prod the GOP, if not conservatives, for presumably not being inclusive enough — saying the GOP can win only “if they reach out to everybody in our country, not just those that have already decided that they are conservatives and Republicans.”

    As former immigration judges, we were horrified when President Obama and his DHS appointees “re-prioritized” the mandatory removal provisions of our nation’s immigration laws. In our days in the courtroom, we followed and applied the provisions of the Immigration & Nationality Act every single day. The INA is a deterring statute and it’s been continuously amended to better deter illegal immigration since it was originally enacted in 1952. Nowhere in the Act did Congress give the President the authority to “re-prioritize” illegal alien and criminal alien-removals. As the results of the 2012 and 2014 “executive actions” show, re-entries and recidivism...

Twenty-one percent (21%) of Republicans and 30% of voters not affiliated with either major political party agree.Women are more supportive than men of letting tax-paying illegal immigrants vote, but the two are in general agreement that the size of voting districts should be determined by counting only the number of eligible voters.Voters under 40 are...

    When Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry talks about immigration on the campaign trail, he hammers President Obama's policies and touts his own experience standing up to the president during last summer's border crisis. But Perry will also need to demonstrate to Republican primary voters that his nuanced approach to immigration can succeed at the federal level. Perry's path to the nomination may feature more roadblocks than there are Border Patrol checkpoints in South Texas. Perry did slow the influx of Central Americans into the Rio Grande Valley during last summer's border crisis, but at great cost to his state. A...

But once I began investigating the curricula and test questions I learned that sure enough, the rigorous “standards” turned out to be nothing more than efforts to impose a curriculum that will make global citizens out of all American students. Or the kind of curriculum Bill Ayers would like.

Sixty percent of “Likely Voters,” disagreed and five percent were undecided. Democrats were more likely to support illegal immigrant voting, with 53 percent supporting the idea. Republicans, however, also indicated support. According to the poll, 20 percent of Republican...

    A key part of the Fifth Circuit’s decision to keep the freeze on President Obama’s amnesty programs was the 25-page dissenting opinion written by the panel’s lone Obama appointee. Not only does it point to how the bloc-voting liberal justices of the Supreme Court will ultimately treat the case, it almost wholly focuses on the threshold issue of “prosecutorial discretion”: an executive-branch power that, if expanded to include mass grants of amnesty, would remove the last vestige of authority that Congress and the courts have in preventing immigration anarchy at our nation’s southern border. The “essential point of disagreement” that...

    This week, Jeb Bush ramped up his rhetoric on immigration reform -- against Republicans. In a closed-to-the-media phone call with Alabama Republicans (except for The Washington Post's Ed O'Keefe, who got access), the former Florida governor knocked his 2016 GOP competitors for bending "with the wind" on immigration reform. Immigration reform has been a tricky subject for many Republicans to broach. There's a wide gap on the issue between the constituency they want to reach in the general election (Hispanics) and the constituency they need to win the GOP nomination (conservatives). And Bush is right: It can take a lot...

A new study by Andy S. Grewal, an associate professor at the University of Iowa College of Law, explains that the ACA provides tax credits to U.S. citizens with incomes between 100 and 400% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL). However, IRS regulations were written to extend credits to citizens below 100% FPL in some cases. Also, Section 36B of the ACA grants credits to...

    Hope soared for almost 5 million undocumented immigrants when President Obama announced last year that he would unilaterally spare them deportation and bestow work authorizations. It was too good to be true. Federal courts have blocked Obama from making good on his decree, with all signs suggesting that his plan will remain legally dead for the remainder of his presidency. Worse, by high-handedly claiming authority, he infuriated congressional Republicans and doomed any hope of even piecemeal immigration reform.

    House Democrats, backed by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) and Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.), are pushing hard for the Department of Homeland Security to end its program of holding illegal immigrant families in “jail-like” detention centers. “We believe your department has not fully grasped the serious harm being inflicted upon mothers and their children in custody,” said a letter to DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson signed by 135 lawmakers on Wednesday. In 2014, the DHS ramped up its practice of holding immigrant families in detention facilities amid an influx of 60,000 families arriving at the Mexican border. But lawmakers are...

    ... In a statement on Wednesday, officials from the Justice Department said they would not ask the Supreme Court to reverse this week’s decision by the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit that continues to block the president’s immigration actions. “The department believes the best way to achieve this goal is to focus on the ongoing appeal on the merits of the preliminary injunction itself,” said Patrick Rodenbush, a spokesman for the Justice Department. “Although the department continues to disagree with the Fifth Circuit’s refusal to stay the district court’s preliminary injunction, the department has determined that...

    The Department of Justice on Wednesday said it will not make an emergency request to the Supreme Court to lift an order blocking President Obama's executive action on immigration. Instead, the administration will focus on the appeal of the injunction itself at the 5th Circuit, which is expected to proceed in July. "The Department has determined that it will not seek a stay from the Supreme Court," Justice Department spokesman Patrick Rodenbush said. Rodenbush said the "best way" to win the case is "to focus on the ongoing appeal on the merits of the preliminary injunction itself. That appeal has...

    In a stunning setback to President Obama’s effort to defer deportation and grant certain citizenship rights to millions of illegal immigrants, a federal appeals court has just upheld an injunction blocking Obama’s executive order on amnesty. The Washington Times reports that the highly anticipated ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit marks the second major legal setback for an administration that was skirting the Congress and charging ahead on its highly controversial program to defer deportation for as many as 5 million illegals. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of...

    The Washington Times reported on Monday that a district court has refused to halt part of President Obama’s immigration program that allows spouses of legal guest workers from seeking employment in the United States. Federal District Judge Tanya S. Chutkan ruled that a claim by a group of technology workers that they were being displaced by foreign workers was “highly speculative.” The Obama administration has also refused to consider what seems to be a growing problem for American high-tech workers who are finding themselves out of a job in favor of cheaper foreign guest workers under the H-1B visa system....

    For five weeks this summer, Napa County children can get a free lunch at one of five school sites in Napa. “More than 49 percent of our students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch during the school year,” said Sunita Dutt-Ellenby, food services coordinator. The free lunch program dovetails with the Migrant Education program, the federally funded program designed to provide supplementary educational and support services to children and youth of migrant families, ages 3-21. Because school district staff will already be working in District kitchens making breakfast, lunch and snacks for Migrant Education recipients, Dutt-Ellenby decided to expand...

    A crackdown on children attempting to illegally enter the United States by Mexico and other Latin American nations has cut this year's surge to a still-high 30,000, but proponents believe that has made the situation even more desperate for kids, leading to greater crime and deaths. "Those that are fleeing and trying to get out of their countries are now using even more dangerous tactics with more criminal entities and costing them even more money to get through to safety," said Kimberly Haynes, director of children's services for Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service. Baltimore-based LIRS is a key player in...

    (Washington, DC ) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding the recent Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals’ ruling which found the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program, President Obama’s executive amnesty, likely will not survive court scrutiny: The Fifth Circuit Court’s ruling against President Obama’s executive amnesty, officially known as the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents program, is a win for the American people. The federal courts aren’t buying into President Obama’s power grab that rewrites immigration law. It is reassuring to see that the...

    In another major blow to the president’s executive amnesty program, the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals refused Tuesday to allow its implementation. The decision could affect as many as 5 million illegal immigrants. But the White House remains unchastised, claiming that the judges who voted against the administration “chose to misinterpret the facts and the law.” On Fox News Tuesday afternoon, legal analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said that if the president continues to flout the law by freezing deportations, “there is a congressional remedy….” Via Fox News: The U.S. Justice Department had asked the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of...

    America’s most powerful former law professor is getting a re-education in the Constitution, and on present course President Obama might flunk out. Witness Tuesday’s federal appeals-court rebuke of his 2014 immigration order, including language that suggests the Administration will also lose on the legal and policy merits. Mr. Obama caused a furor in November when he suddenly claimed powers he had previously said he didn’t have to award legal status and work permits to millions of illegal immigrants. The Administration claims it is merely allowing immigration officers to apply routine “prosecutorial discretion” on a case by case basis not to...

    Success in politics, as in war and chess, requires the ability to plan several moves ahead. As Obama awaits court decisions on several of his key policy initiatives, it’s surprising that there has been little or no speculation as to just what exactly was he thinking?
