    Talking Points Memo / The Politico ^ | July 2, 2012 | Igor Bobic
    At a private meeting with a group of influential supporters including Rupert Murdoch, Mitt Romney said he wasn’t going to flip-flop from his past positions on immigration, according to Politico: Murdoch chimed in, three sources said, telling the candidate on the issue of immigration generally, “You have to take the fight to Obama on this.” Romney said the Hispanic vote is important, noting he has Sen. Marco Rubio on the trail for him and that one of his own sons speaks Spanish, but indicated he is not going to change positions from some of what he said in the primaries....

    RALEIGH -- Uriel Alberto, a Winston-Salem paralegal arrested in February for disrupting a legislative hearing on immigration, will have to wait a while for his trial. Because the 25-year-old Mexican native is here in this country illegally and without a license, he had to rely on someone else to drive him to Wake County District Court on Monday. He was late, and Judge Erin Graber was not happy about that. Alberto entered an Alford plea, acknowledging that there was enough evidence to convict him but not admitting guilt. Scott Holmes, his Durham attorney, immediately appealed the verdict, giving Alberto a...

William Covert said.

    Uriel Alberto was born in Mexico 25 years ago, but after 17 years in North Carolina he thinks of himself as a “Southern boy.” To Alberto, one of the many young immigrants brought to this country as a child by parents seeking a better life, his homeland is foreign. But in the United States, the place he considers home, he is foreign – and illegal. Alberto, one of three undocumented immigrants arrested in February after interrupting a state legislative hearing on immigration, is scheduled to appear in Wake County district court on Monday to respond to those charges

    by John HillStand With ArizonaIndiana is sick and tired of illegal aliens, and sicker still of the Federal failure to do something about them.Last year they passed their own version of Arizona's immigration law - which included mandatory E-Verify for all businesses, with penalties, verification of immigration status when passing out state welfare benefits, and a ban on the acceptance of Mexico's fraud-friendly "Matricula Consular" card. Part of the law was blocked by a Federal judge, but the bulk remains in effect. Part of that law also requires the state to calculate the annual cost of illegal aliens to the state - and...

    PHOENIX (AP) — Some leaders in Arizona's homebuilding industry are concerned about a potential labor shortage following the Supreme Court's decision to uphold part of the state's controversial immigration law known as SB1070. The bill's passage two years ago led thousands of illegal immigrants to pack up and leave. That was when the housing market had crashed, but now the market is recovering. The Supreme Court on Monday upheld the provision in the law that allows police to try to determine the immigration status of people they stop or arrest if they have a reasonable suspicion that they're in the...

    Leading House Democrats say President Obama has a great opportunity to pass immigration reform next year if he keeps the White House, but warn his window to act will be short. But with immigration reform gaining prominence in the 2012 presidential race - and with leaders in both parties conceding the system is broken - some top Democrats are hoping Obama would move aggressively on the issue in a second term.

    Border Patrol agents in Arizona are blasting their bosses for telling them, along with all other Department of Homeland Security employees, to run and hide if they encounter an "active shooter." It's one thing to tell civilian employees to cower under a desk if a gunman starts spraying fire in a confined area, say members of Tucson Local 2544/National Border Patrol Council, but to give armed law enforcement professionals the same advice is downright insulting. The instructions from DHS come in the form of pamphlets and a mandatory computer tutorial. “We are now taught in an ‘Active Shooter’ course that...

    A Brownsville family is stepping up their quest for answers in the death of an ICE against killed by a weapon linked to the "Fast & Furious" scandal. The family of slain U.S. Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent Jaime Zapata held a press conference in Brownsville on Friday morning.

Zetas drug cartel leader Julian Espinoza-Zapata (aka "El Piolin") is facing federal charges in Washington DC but little other information about the case has come out. Fast...

    Judicial Watch ^ | June 29, 2012
    On the same week that the U.S. House of Representatives found him in criminal contempt, the nation’s embattled Attorney General professed solidarity with a radical leftist Latino group, proudly celebrating its socialist mission of “uno para todos, todos para uno” (all for one and one for all). It wasn’t enough for Eric Holder to earn the accolade of being the nation’s first sitting Attorney General to be found in criminal contempt by Congress for stonewalling the investigation of a disastrous experiment conducted by his office. Known as Operation Fast and Furious, the project allowed Mexican drug traffickers to obtain U.S.-sold...

    The Supreme Court’s decision, announced Monday, in Arizona v. United States opens the way for sensible reform of our immigration laws.Barack Obama and his administration have taken heart that the court overturned Arizona’s state penalties for illegal immigrants. The idea is that states can’t pile higher penalties on top of those voted by Congress, just as states can’t deport people whom Congress allowed into the country.But the much more significant part of the case was the unanimous 8–0 (Justice Kagan not voting) ruling upholding the Arizona provision authorizing state and local law-enforcement personnel to help enforce federal law by...

    They chanted. They marched. They sat cross-legged on the two-lane highway in front of the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in Lower Providence Township on Thursday, closing it to traffic for more than 90 minutes. "No papers, no fear, immigrants are marching here!" the three dozen or so demonstrators shouted. "Hey, Obama, don't deport my mama!" After a police lieutenant with a bullhorn asked the protesters three times to disperse, officers swooped in on foot and on bicycles, and made three arrests. Handcuffed and taken into custody were Jose Luna, 23; Erika Guadalupe Nunez, 21; and Sheila Quintana, 19. Luna is...

    Two mental health clinicians have determined that Nicolas Dutan Guaman, charged with killing a Milford man with his truck last year, is not competent to stand trial, Guaman’s lawyer told a Worcester Superior Court judge yesterday. Guaman was evaluated Friday by neuropsychologist Paul Spiers who was hired by the defense; and yesterday by court-appointed psychologist Alan Schonberger, said attorney Peter Ettenberg. While neither doctor has filed a report, both claim that he is incompetent, the attorney told Judge Daniel Wrenn. Ettenberg said that his client does not understand the charges against him or how the court and U.S. legal...

    Justin Bieber is many things: Singer, actor ... Canadian? It's true! And Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez (D-Ill.) used the Bieb's Canadian ancestry to make a point about the controversial Arizona immigration law. [Related: Arizona implements immigration law as feds push back] Gutierrez, who is against the law that allows Arizona law enforcement officials to ask those deemed suspicious for proof of American citizenship, raised the point on the House floor that judging whether or not somebody is from the U.S. based on appearance is illogical and silly. And, he argues, rather difficult. [Related: Immigration from Mexico plummeted well before Arizona...
