  • Obama administration forbids states from asking whether a voter is a citizen

    05/01/2015 8:47:32 PM PDT · by E. Pluribus Unum · 34 replies
    The Obama administration’s insistence that all states must use the same federal voter registration form effectively forbids any state from verifying – or even asking about – the citizenship status of would-be voters.Details of a pending Supreme Court case, Kobach, et al. v. The United States Election Assistance Commission, reveal that the Obama administration considers states to be in violation of the law if they ask any information of registrants beyond what’s included on the federal form.An amicus brief submitted April 21 by the American Civil Rights Union argues that the federal form serves as a gateway for non-citizens to...

    Republican candidate Hal Heiner announced today his proposal to implement E-Verify in Kentucky, a measure to ensure that Kentucky jobs go to legal Kentucky workers. The E-Verify program allows employers to identify the immigration status of potential hires by checking names against government databases. E-Verify comes at no cost to employers. Heiner’s proposal would require the use of E-Verify to confirm legal worker status for all employers, government employees and government contractors and subcontractors.

    Washington, D.C. – Early this morning, the House Armed Services Committee (HASC) passed the FY 2016 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) after open borders and amnesty proponents added Congressman Ruben Gallego’s (D-AZ) amendment, on a 33-30 vote, that encourages the Secretary of Defense to declare that DACA illegal aliens are "vital" to America's national interest and thus eligible to enlist in the U.S. Armed Forces even though they are not American citizens. In previous years, HASC defeated similar efforts to help illegal aliens compete for and take military service opportunities from American citizens. However, six wayward Republicans spurned the HASC...

    Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush declared Wednesday that 11 million immigrants in the country illegally should have an opportunity to stay, wading yet again into his party's contentious immigrant debate. In tone and substance, Bush stands out among the many Republicans lining up for the GOP's next presidential primary, where conservatives who oppose an immigration overhaul often hold outsized influence. As he moves toward a presidential campaign, the brother and son of former presidents has not backed away from his defense of immigrants in the country illegally and a policy that would allow them to attain legal status under certain...

    Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy opened his Friday memo to House members regarding May’s legislative agenda by quoting Steve Jobs and praising Republicans for the victories they’ve overseen in the first 100 days of the 114th Congress. But GOP success stories may be overshadowed later this month when Republicans again face one of the most politically dangerous and unforgiving issues for the party: immigration. In considering the fiscal 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, members could see a repeat of last year’s meltdown over Rep. Jeff Denham’s plans to offer as an amendment his so-called ENLIST Act, which would provide a legal-status...

    Should the U.S. military serve as a dumping ground or a visa mill for Obama’s unlawful amnesty program? This is not a hard question to answer for ordinary Americans who respect our sovereignty, rule of law, and are concerned about our national security. But late Wednesday night, 6 Republicans joined every Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee in blessing this illegal policy of the Obama administration. The issue at hand is Obama’s unilateral decision to place illegal aliens in the military and grant them citizenship under the Military Accessions Vital to National Interest, (MAVNI) program. The MAVNI program is...

    "....Like his fellow GOP presidential hopeful, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, Cruz cannot count on a certain rapport with Latino voters simply because he is Latino himself. Trust doesn't work that way, not in life and not in politics. Hispanic voters are weary of being targeted as a desirable voter demographic to be flattered but not much more. They can spot the phony. To many critics, Cruz has tried to court two mistresses: tea party conservatives, on the one hand, and Hispanic voters whom he views as ready for takeover by the GOP. Cruz believes, with some justification, that Latinos...

    The congressman who tried silencing federal law enforcement sources from exposing terrorist camps in Ciudad Juárez is contradicting the U.S. government’s assessment of the famously crime-infested Mexican city by proclaiming that it’s “far safer” than it was years ago. It appears to be a frantic effort on the part of Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat who represents El Paso Texas in the U.S. House of Representatives, to counter reports of Islamic terrorists operating in the area and joining forces with the sophisticated drug cartels that have long controlled the region. Judicial Watch broke that story last fall after receiving detailed...

One is left to wonder what the unemployed, “younger, more dynamic people” of Baltimore and other areas might think of Jeb’s reasoning.

    Noncitizens are registering to vote and at best, it seems the federal government’s officials don’t care about this illegal activity. At worst, it raises questions about whether some in Washington support illegal voting, so long as it supports their political agenda. The exact number of noncitizens who are voting in our elections is difficult to quantify because of the bureaucratic quagmire perpetuated by federal agencies against the (very few) states that have the resolve to attempt to verify citizenship.

He recognizes what no one else in his party seems to see: that it’s not a solution to constantly snipe at proponents of immigration reform and shoot down their proposals.If you want to lead this country, you must have a plan of action, particularly as it concerns what to do with the 11 million undocumented migrants currently in this country.

This is the first time the university is hosting a summit on undocumented students, according to UC Office of the President spokesperson Shelly Moron.

    Non-citizens are voting in American elections, and the federal government refuses to do anything to stop it. Worse, the current administration seems to be doing everything they can to prevent the states from trying to stop it. First, they sued states that asked people to present ID before voting. Now, the administration will not let states even ask people to establish they are citizens when they register to vote. That’s the underlying plot in the latest major case in election law that has just been presented to the Supreme Court. Federal law says that states must accept and use a federal form for registering voters. But the...

    The Obama administration this week rejected a request from Congress to investigate potential abuses in the country’s key guest-worker program for tech workers, insisting it would “be premature” to look into Southern California Edison’s use of the controversial H-1B visa to outsource jobs. A bipartisan group of senators, led by Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions and Democratic Sen. Richard J. Durbin, had asked for a probe after SCE employees testified they were booted from jobs and replaced with guest-workers. Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, said his agency takes such allegations seriously — but said there isn’t enough...

    Immigration restrictionists often claim that there are no "jobs Americans won't do," if only US borders would be secured against economic migrants who are willing to work hard for low pay and few benefits. If the fruit-and-vegetable industry couldn't rely on seasonal farmhands from Mexico and Central America, for example, growers would perforce offer the higher wages necessary to attract American citizens to pick the country's fresh produce. What alternative would they have? Let crops rot in the field? Field workers pick strawberries in Oxnard, Calif. In reality, agriculture is no more of a zero-sum industry than any other, and...

While speaking earlier this week with the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, Cruz was asked “how to inform, mobilize, and attract Hispanic voters in 2016. Cruz’s response was that the Hispanic community is “fundamentally conservative one” and that they “work their fingers to the bones.” Some years ago, I was having lunch with a Hispanic entrepreneur in Austin.

    Man sentenced to 60 years for 'brutal' northwest branch trail rape ROCKVILLE, Md.

Joaquin Orellana Torres, 24, received his sentence in Montgomery County Circuit Court Thursday morning. The judge presiding over the case said he deviated from guidelines when sentencing Torres because of the brutality of the attack. Torres, a native of El Salvador who resided in Hyattsville, Maryland, was charged and convicted of first degree rape and robbery for attacking a female...

    To borrow a quote from Game of Thrones, which recently had its season 5 premiere, “Winter is coming.” This is what can happen in Texas, our economy could start to freeze up, if we limit educational opportunities for undocumented students in Texas by passing Senate Bill 1819. It would end the dreams of thousands of Texas high school graduates, who have lived here since they were children, and rely on in-state tuition regardless of immigration status. The push to rescind 14 years of in-state tuition to these students, known as Dreamers, will greatly impact the Texas economy — a college...

He supports immigration reform, but not comprehensive immigration reform — only a piecemeal security-first approach will work, the same view now taken by Marco Rubio. But Cruz fans who haven’t paid attention to him on this issue may assume, incorrectly but understandably, that he naturally takes the most conservative position that an electable Republican presidential candidate can take. Not so: It’s Scott Walker(!) who’s staked out the right side of the field by demanding that American wages be a variable when considering target numbers for legal...

Viguerie began the exclusive interview with Breitbart News by citing one of his main concerns — and pet peeves — regarding immigration. The “root cause of the problem,” he says, is the desperate situations immigrants face in the countries they are leaving. “Has anyone looked beyond our border?” he asked. “At some point you have to do that, but no one seems to be...

    The Obama administration is on pace to deport the fewest number of immigrants in nearly a decade, according to internal government data obtained by The Associated Press. As of April 20, federal immigration officials sent home 127,378 people in the United States illegally. That puts immigrant removals on track to be among the lowest since the middle of President George W. Bush's second term. The internal statistics reveal a continuing decline in deportations even as the Obama administration fights a legal challenge to a plan it announced late last year to shield millions of immigrants from deportations. "With the resources...

    Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson told the Senate Tuesday that he has no regrets at all for going around Congress to implement President Barack Obama’s several immigration-related executive actions. “Do you regret the actions that you and the administration have taken that have gotten us to this point?” Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) asked Johnson at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing. “No, I do not, senator,” Johnson replied. “I believe that the undocumented population in this country, at least half of which has been here more than 10 years, has to be reckoned with. We know they’re here, and they are...

    Congratulations to WorldNetDaily on its 18th anniversary. As an author, I'm so thankful to Joseph Farah and his staff for creating such an efficient route to communicate with millions of Americans. I am especially grateful to WND for tackling conservative issues every day so effectively. Iowa staged a big show-and-tell for nine 2016 presidential candidates last week. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker seems to be the only one who talked about a growing issue at the grassroots: how American jobs and wages are adversely affected by Obama's immigration policies. The argument that immigrants do jobs that Americans won't do is as...
  • Bush, speaking some Spanish, implores conservatives to be proud of US as an 'immigrant nation'

    Jeb Bush confronted one of the Republican Party's touchiest debates head-on Tuesday, telling Puerto Ricans that conservatives should be proud that America is "an immigrant nation" and value the contribution immigrants make to the country. The former Florida governor and 2016 GOP presidential prospect delivered a speech on economic opportunities peppered with Spanish, and his audience responded with hearty applause. He's fluent in the language, and often uses it in Florida, but it's rarely heard in Republican presidential campaign politics. Immigration is a delicate subject for Bush in the primacy race, with several potential rivals favoring a harder line on...

    On a host of electoral integrity issues, the liberal position can be summarized in two words: enable cheating. You think thatÂ’s too harsh?How else can you explain the race-baiting rhetoric from President Obama on down against something as commonsense as voter photo ID laws, which the public supports by wide margins? Or the intense drive for Election Day registration, mail-in voting and earlier and earlier balloting, all of which make it harder to detect and prevent vote fraud? Or the opposition to any law ensuring that only citizens can vote? A case in point of the latter is the Obama...

    Texas legislators are debating whether to repeal the Texas Dream Act. Signed by then-Governor Rick Perry in 2001, the law allows certain undocumented students to pay in-state tuition. A recent Texas Tribune analysis revealed that the majority of undocumented students who pay in-state tuition rates don't attend four-year universities – they’re in community colleges. And most are in school here in North Texas. Like many immigrants, Alejandra Miranda and her parents left their native El Salvador for a “better life.” That was 12 years ago. She’s 23 now and enrolled at North Lake College in Irving. As she sat in...

    Jeb Bush visited Puerto Rico on Tuesday and spoke in personal terms about “the power of the immigrant experience” as he challenged his party to be more respectful of Latino communities if it ever hopes to win back their votes. Latinos who are disillusioned with President Obama are willing to listen to Republicans like himself, Mr. Bush said at a campaign appearance at the Universidad Metropolitana. “But the fact is,” he added, “we’ve got to give that message, and we haven’t campaigned in communities to show respect and to listen.” “This is not crazy talk,” Mr. Bush, the former Florida...

    The Week ^ | April 28, 2015 | Jeff Spross
    Last Monday, Scott Walker, Wisconsin's Republican governor and a presumed GOP presidential hopeful, kicked the hornets' nest that is the immigration debate. He told Glenn Beck's radio show that America needs to "make decisions about a legal immigration system that's based on, first and foremost, protecting American workers and American wages," and that this concern should be "at the forefront of our discussion going forward." Walker's comments are significant because they're something of a reversal for him, but also because they break with the "legal-immigration-good, illegal-immigration-bad" orthodoxy of the GOP establishment. Lumping both forms of immigration together as equally questionable...

    <p>Is immigrating from less-developed countries to the West a good or a bad thing, for host and guest? Is the immigrant angry at, or nostalgic for, the country he left? Is he thankful to or resentful of the country he has come to? Does the Westerner know why the other seeks him out or why he himself chooses not to emigrate to the non-West? These questions and dozens like them are not so much never answered as never even asked. The result is chaos.</p>

    California could serve as a model for overcoming barriers to expanding health coverage to uninsured Latino populations, according to an analysis by the Commonwealth Fund. The Commonwealth Fund cited California -- which has about 14 million Latino residents -- as a model for how to overcome such barriers. For example, the analysis noted that California: * Does not have a five-year delay before documented immigrants become eligible for coverage; and * Has invested in wide outreach efforts

    Last year, as part of his Imperial decree of amnesty for illegal immigrants, resident Barack Obama created the White House Task Force on New Americans, whose goal is to vastly increase the numbers and rates at which immigrants were naturalized and granted citizenship. This Task Force works hand-in-hand with the George Soros-funded, open borders-promoting Migration Policy Institute, as well as the openly racist group La Raza, a Mexican nationalist organization that has called for the mass murder of white Americans and a return of the western states to Mexico. The Task Force is headed up by one Cecilia Munoz, Obama’s...

    This was one of those weeks when those who voted for Republicans last fall are left scratching their heads, wondering if they are reliving the closing paragraph of George Orwell’s Animal Farm. “The creatures outside looked from pig to man, and from man to pig, and form pig to man again; but already it was impossible to say which was which.” In this case, we would just swap out man and pig for elephant and donkey. Recall the 8 RINO Rules CR highlighted earlier this year? GOP leadership continues to adhere to their guiding principles and weekly offer new examples...
