    President Obama traveled to Chicago on Tuesday to sell his executive action on immigration in a speech at a community center in a predominantly Polish-American neighborhood, although his remarks were frequently interrupted by hecklers. Obama listened and asked them to stop yelling. Then when it appeared he'd had enough, the former lawyer and constitutional law professor set about deconstructing their arguments. "What you're not paying attention to is the fact that I just took an action to change the law, so that's point No. 1," Obama said. "Point No. 2, the way the change in the law works is that...

    Under President Obama’s new program to protect millions of illegal immigrants from deportation, many of those affected will be eligible to receive Social Security, Medicare and a wide array of other federal benefits, a White House official said Tuesday. In his speech Thursday night, the president touted his plan as a means of bringing accountability to a broken immigration system, under which 11 million or more people are estimated to be living in this country illegally. “We’re going to offer the following deal: If you’ve with been in America more than five years.

    In all its fury and unanimity, the response from the right to President Obamas decision to change immigration policy without the consent of Congress was the manifestation of a major transformation within the Tea Party. What started five years ago as a groundswell of conservatives committed to curtailing the reach of the federal government, cutting the deficit and countering the Wall Street wing of the Republican Party has become a movement largely against immigration overhaul. The politicians, intellectual leaders and activists who consider themselves part of the Tea Party have redirected their energy from advocating fiscal austerity and small government...

    Washington Post ^ | November 21, 2014 | By Valerie Strauss
    According to the Pew Research Centers Hispanic Trends Project, 6.9 percent of K-12 students had parents of illegal immigrants in 2012, while far less 1.4 percent of all students were illegal immigrants themselves. Nevada had the biggest percentage of students with parents who were illegal immigrants, followed by California, at 13.2 percent; Texas, at 13.1 percent; and Arizona, at 11 percent. The figures come from a new report that says there were an estimated 11.2 million illegal immigrants in the United States in 2012 (the latest year for which there is data), the same as in 2009.

    Obama’s illegal alien amnesty is just going to be an open door. It’s his DREAMER amnesty on a much bigger scale.The infrastructure isn’t there to process and check all these applications. Congress won’t be allocating money for an illegal unilateral amnesty (which sets them up to be blamed for the consequences of Obama’s illegal actions) so the whole thing will be an open door for just about anyone trying to get through. The political debate over Obama’s unilateral immigration actions is obscuring the more basic question of whether the federal government is actually up to the task of handling...

    resident Obamas decision to ignore the law by granting de facto amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants brought to America as children and those who are parents of children with legal status was a terribly foolish act. It will only serve to exacerbate racial tensions. Polls indicate the overwhelming majority of whites view illegal immigration as threatening. Many see immigrants as taking jobs from native-born Americans, pushing down wages and contributing to cultural decline. While many may silently harbor racial bigotry, the adverse economic consequences for whites are real and palpable. Illegal immigration increases the supply of low-skilled workers, and...

It plunged the party into a slump and allowed the president to divert attention from the looming Obamacare debacle. It was only after the shutdown ended by complete surrender that Republicans and the media could focus on the horrible Obamacare rollout. The shutdown was so harmful that virtually no conservative not even Cruz recommends a repeat over the presidents executive order on immigration. So why is Cruz still...

Blessed are the politically useful and illegal immigrants are more useful than African Americans.” Blacks voted for Obama in record numbers: 91% in 2008 and 87% in 2012. It was historic. Yet, last week via unconstitutional executive order, the president announced an immigration “reform” plan that will disproportionately hurt African Americans.

They believed they would control Washington for decades, if not generations, to come. Yet fewer than six years later, their congressional majorities have been annihilated and their prospects for retaining the presidency in 2016 are far less promising than they were just a month ago. Virtually all this devastation has been caused by Obama himself. Even...

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. America...

In the president's address, Gingrich writes, he described "what sounded like a reasonable plan to prioritize the deportation of felons, criminals, and gang members over the deportation of other people in the United States illegally." Gingrich says the White House actually announced its real policy in a memo from its Office of Legislative Affairs hours before Obama took to the podium Thursday night. That policy is a "17-point plan including...

It has shaped our character as a people with limitless possibilities people not trapped by our past, but able to remake ourselves as we choose. | But today, our immigration system is broken, and everybody knows it. | The consequences of refusal to enforce law is no reflection...

    Judge Jeanine expertly displayed all the arrogance, hypocrisy and opportunism of Obamas lawless executive action on immigration this week. Its definitely worth a listen:

    IJReview picked up on one of the funniest SNL sketches in recent (a.k.a. post-original cast) history. It was a Schoolhouse Rock! parody that aired last night, mocking Obama’s latest immigration-related executive order and complete disregard for the constitutional process: It starts out with the familiar boy climbing the steps of Capitol Hill and asking what kind of bill is on the Hill with him. The bill responds with a jingle that he is an “immigration bill” and that he hopes he can be passed into law someday. Cue the President shoving the bill down the stairs before inviting his buddy,...

    Having been clobbered in the midterms, the president put on his cockiest face and strut, and in a carefully orchestrated setting designed to make him look imperial poked a thumb in the eye of the newly-elected Congress by announcing that he would not deport the people he was already not deporting. The next day the House of Representatives sued him for overreaching on ObamaCare, but despite a lot of understandably outraged yammering, it is not likely to follow suit or at least succeed in similarly challenging on constitutional grounds his immigration executive order. True, at the heart of both of...

    Theres a lesson from President Obamas first term that he should have learned long ago. Its simple: On an issue that affects many millions of Americans, its besteven necessaryto have bipartisan support in Congress. Going forward in a purely partisan fashion is bound to cause national discord, increase polarization, and heighten distrust in Washington. Worse still, it means the issue will be controversial for years to come. The enduring unpopularity of Obamacareindeed, the Republican commitment to repeal itis an example of what can happen when bipartisanship is spurned. In this case, Obama and congressional Democrats made no effort to attract...

    The Obama administration was bankrolling America's churches as far back as 2010 in preparation for the November 2014 invasion of American sovereignty Some of Barack Obamas most passionate Marxist minions come arrayed in priestly robes rather than business suits. Their benign-sounding, if not downright boring name the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) Committee on Migration helps hide them from the spotlight of controversy. Everyone should be aware that being far more immersed in politics than prayer, the USCCB Committee on Migration have long been waving the cheerleaders pom pom for President Barack Obamas Executive Amnesty fiat.

    We are up against "deranged traitors," not misguided Americans. We are confronting stark evil, not innocent error Reason flees; pygmies rule. Our intellectuals and legislators on both sides of the spectrum have abandoned all sanity regarding immigration, culture, freedom, and common sense. Our country is in free fall. Collapse lies over the horizon like grinning Death with its blood stained scythe. Pity our children. They must live in the desolate country we are creating for them. Those who hold intellectual and legislative power in America today, no doubt, think of themselves as noble and brave in pursuit of justice and...

    Obama wants to import illegal aliens while deporting American jobs. He wants to trade American jobs to illegal aliens for Democratic votes Obamas excuse for his illegal amnesty will be that the immigration system is broken forcing him to act. But when Obama says that the system is broken, he means that some parts of it still work and so he intends to break immigration all the way through to benefit his own corrupt political allies. That will hurt his own voters the most, but the Democratic Party has a notoriously masochistic relationship with its voting base. It beats them...
  • Cruz calls on Congress to block presidential nominees over executive action

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said Sunday that President Obama refuses to accept that only Congress has the authority to establish federal immigration laws and that members should block the presidents nominees and some funding until he rescinds his executive action on the issue. This is a stunning and sad display by the president, Cruz, a Republican, told Fox News Sunday. We need to impose real consequence. Cruz suggested, as he has since Obama announced the executive action Thursday, that Congress should take action next year when Republicans, who already control the House, will also have the majority in the Senate.
