  • Tired of paying for illegal aliens? Demand passage of H.R. 2885: Legal Workforce Act

    Now that you have written your check and sent the IRS some of your hard earned money to help feed Barack Obama’s regime here’s a suggestion for what to do to fight back. Get behind the effort to pass Republican Representative Lamar Smith’s Legal Workforce Act (LWA) HR 2885. This bill would amend the Immigration and Nationality Act and order the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) to develop a system for determining the citizenship and work eligibility status of all alien workers. As envisioned by Representative Smith this system would have DHS establish an employment eligibility verification system (EEVS), patterned...

    Apparently gang rivalries in Southern California are breaking down along racial lines, and the Mexican Mafia has ordered Hispanic street gangs to "'focus on getting the blacks out' of their territories, according to an Escondido police gang specialist" as reported by Eva Knott for the San Diego Reader. Racial unrest in the underworld has been boiling over for the last few years in the Golden State. Last year the feds indicted 51 suspected members of Azusa 13 -- a Latino street gang affiliated with the Mexican Mafia -- for their alleged roles in a terror campaign against blacks in Azusa,...

    A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday ruled Arizona may require voters to show identification at the polls, a ruling likely to add fuel to the fiery debate about voting rights in a presidential election year. But the court also ruled the state cannot demand that they show proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote in federal elections, a decision the state's attorney general said he would appeal. That could set the stage for yet another U.S. Supreme Court showdown over a contentious Arizona law touching on citizenship issues. Next week, the high court will hear arguments over the state's...

The Appeals Court mostly shot down the challenges to the law, which had itself been upheld in Arizona U.S. District Court.

    Mitt Romney, who has called government-funded programs that offer assistance to illegal immigrants “magnets” that draw more illegal immigrants to the country, allowed a health-care program that helps illegal immigrations to be included in the final version of his health-care program that he signed. From the Los Angeles Times: The Massachusetts healthcare law that then-Gov. Mitt Romney signed in 2006 includes a program known as the Health Safety Net, which allows undocumented immigrants to get needed medical care along with others who lack insurance.

We’ll cover everything from the latest spate of violent crimes committed by illegal aliens to Barack Obama’s continued roll out of administrative amnesty, which now includes directives to ignore both interior enforcement and border security. But first, we’ll examine this administration’s ongoing obstruction of Congress’s investigation into the ever-broadening gun-walking scandals.

    (Reuters) - Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman vetoed a proposal to restore Medicaid-funded prenatal care for illegal immigrants on Friday, but the initiative could still survive if the state legislature rejects his move next week. Nebraska state senators voted 31-15 on Wednesday to restore the program, which was eliminated two years ago after providing prenatal care for decades. The number of votes in favor was one more than would be needed to override the veto and the Nebraska legislature has one day left in its current session -- next Wednesday -- in which to do so.

Obama and Holder appear to view almost everything through the prism of race or, at the very least, use race as an excuse to justify otherwise very dubious policies, from immigration enforcement to voter intimidation actions to strong-arming banks to make loans via allegations of racism. In December, along these lines, Holder criticized redistricting maps that had been drawn by the Texas Legislature and used the opportunity to call for an aggressive federal review of voter identification laws in...

Here is how it would work, according to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announcement posted in today’s Federal Register, the daily journal of the U.S. government; the agency will grant “unlawful presence waivers” to illegal aliens who can prove they have a relative that’s a U.S. citizen.

Angel, the father of two American-born children, is an illegal immigrant. And a maze of conflicting health care and immigration policies meant that while the government would pay for a lifetime of dialysis, costing $75,000 yearly, it would not pay for a $100,000 transplant that would make...

    Nashville City Paper ^ | April 4, 2012 | Pierce Greenberg
    Over the course of three months, 25-year-old Olbin Euceda committed crimes involving 26 victims in the Antioch area during the fall of 2011, according to multiple Davidson County grand jury indictments handed down last week.

He was caught just before boarding a bus to Mexico. The grand jury indictments handed down last week charge Euceda with 41 separate counts, outlining to some extent the crimes with which he and his alleged accomplice, Rony Sorta, are...

    ( - Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) says he is working to craft an alternative version of the DREAM Act that would allow younger illegal aliens who came to the United States "through no fault of their own" to stay here legally and, if they wished, get in line to become a citizen. "There is nothing that prohibits them from getting citizenship,” Rubio told the Tampa Bay Times in an April 3 interview in which he explained his plan. “We just don't create a new pathway. The bottom line is they would have a visa of some sort and like they...

    Stand With Arizona ^ | 04-05-2012 | John Hill
    by John HillStand With Arizona Democrats facing a tough election year are on the warpath - doing everything in their power to stop Voter ID laws in their tracks. The Obama Department of Justice has declared war on Texas and South Carolina - inventing non-existent "racial discrimination" to block popular voter ID laws in those states. And always, we hear the bleating of activists that "there's no significant voter fraud in America" . Meanwhile, Democrats officials (and their activist allies) are routinely caught committing it. And Roger Hedgecock detailed the extensive effort by the Democrats in 2010 to commit...

    Nothing is more constitutionally offensive than Democrats fighting our states' sworn duty of enforcing Voter Id laws. The fact that these politicians – who swore to uphold and defend the Constitution – are OK with allowing non-citizens to vote, to participate in decisions that affect our families and futures, is both disgusting and insulting. So the government willingly spends millions of dollars to ensure that minors are carded for cigarettes and booze – decisions of supreme national importance - but they refuse to demand that voters show proper identification when performing their most vital duty as citizens? This is so...

    State lawmakers have advanced a bill that would restore prenatal care to mothers who lost Medicaid coverage two years ago, including illegal immigrants. Sen. Kathy Campbell of Lincoln sponsors LB 599, saying that Nebraska’s practice of funding prenatal care of the unborn child of poor women should return, including the unborn child of an illegal immigrant. “The child will be a U.S. citizen at its birth,” Campbell stated in her opening. “Would we not want that child to be healthy? Would we not want healthy babies?” Nebraska had provided prenatal care through Medicaid until 2010 when federal officials objected. Approximately...
