  • White House Teams Up With Soros for Disturbing 2016 Plan

    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...

    New York Times ^ | April 27, 2015 | By ROBERTO SURO and MARCELO M. SUÁREZ-OROZCO
    SOMETHING happened while the immigration system in the United States got broken, something that should change the way we talk about fixing it. Years went by, and nature took its course. More than 11 million unauthorized immigrants settled into our communities; many formed families and had children. Now at least one of every 15 children living in the United States has an unauthorized parent, and nearly all of those children are native-born United States citizens. Think of that statistic, one in 15, the next time you drive by a school or a playground. Think of those children living with the...

    Jeb Bush drifted into the room to a smattering of claps compelled by his aides – sporadic applause that quickly evaporated into the ether once he paused for an autograph. (SNIP) After his remarks, 24-year-old Eddie Failor approached Bush to commend him for hanging tough on immigration reform, another issue that’s raised the ire of conservatives. “Unlike some candidates recently in the news, he hasn’t backed down from what he believes on the issue,” Failor told U.S. News after his exchange, declining to name names.

By the nation’s own president. “It’s deliberate,” Schlafly told WND in an interview. “It’s not any accident. It’s because Obama and his friends are letting all these people in who don’t want to be Americans, who don’t want to speak English.” The Census Bureau projected last month that the U.S....

Most recently he told the radio host Glenn Beck that he favored restricting legal immigration in tough economic times, a position to the right of most other 2016 presidential hopefuls.

    If you are a serial killing illegal alien gang member, it helps to be one of resident Obama’s “Dreamers.” Exchanges of letters on Tuesday between a U.S. Senate lawmaker and an official from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reveals that resident Barack Obama’s executive-ordered immigration policy was instrumental in protecting a criminal alien gang member. Sadly, that gang member allegedly murdered four Americans, including a former participant on the television series “America’s Next Top Model,” according to news reports on Wednesday. In fact, spokespeople for resident Obama admitted that an illegal alien and known gang member, who was allowed...

    Last week, the White House Task Force on New Americans held a briefing at the Soros-funded, pro-open borders Migration Policy Institute to push its new “Strategic Action Plan on Immigrant & Refugee Integration.” The Task Force, which seeks to ramp up naturalization rates among non-citizens, grew out of one of the dozen bombshell memos dropped on the American public after the midterms last year. Although barely discussed, it may be the most important memo released that day, even more so than Obama’s twin amnesty programs and the ‘New Priorities on Deportations’ memo which rewrote the

    The most potent illustration that Republicans have shifted their attitudes on immigration came Tuesday morning when all GOP members of the Senate Judiciary Committee rejected an amendment from Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., to severely limit the number of legal immigrants allowed into the country. The committee’s overwhelming ‘No’ vote shows that the battle for Republicans’ souls on immigration has shifted away from groups that want to reduce the influx of foreigners, like the Heritage Foundation, NumbersUSA, and Fairness for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), toward free-market groups that applaud increased immigration, such as Americans for Tax Reform and the CATO Institute....

All it would take to blow him up for good on the right is a hidden smartphone recorder catching him crowing about amnesty, and he knows it. He’s the safest pick in the field precisely because he’s not prone...

Sixty percent of Americans are displeased with the current levels of immigration, according to Gallup—a decline from 72 percent in 2008, when the country plunged into a recession, but an increase of six percent from 2014. The majority of adults Gallup polled, 39 percent in a plurality, said they wanted to see immigration levels decrease. Gallup presents these numbers through a partisan filter as “fodder” for Republicans, discomforted as they are by the results. According to...

And now Marco Rubio, who like McCain attempted to pass a bipartisan comprehensive reform bill, is doing something similar.

    "We have prevented the worst outcome in Libya" Senator John McCain-April 2011 You're seeing the story of the 'migrants' crossing the Mediterranean Sea to Southern Europe today and the immediate reason why they are doing it. There's chaos in Libya right now including the presence of Islamic State and its ususal methods of dealing with its enemies including those who are not Muslims. What the media will not talk about but others already are were the policies that brought Libya to where it is today, the same policies used to a lesser extent in Syria with the same result. The...

    While the administration struggles to move forward with its plan to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants, the list of foreigners trying to get into the United States legally has surged to 4.4 million, over 100,000 more than last year, according to the State Department. Those on the list either have a family member who is a U.S. citizen or green card holder, sponsoring their entry, or an employer wants them. The list grew by 100,085 over last year. And more than a quarter of them, 1,323,978, are Mexican. ... unlike illegals slipping over the border, many of those on the...

    Several prominent Republicans are trying to push immigration restrictionist groups to the fringe of the debate by challenging their conservative credentials and attacking their stance on population control, The Washington Post reports. GOP heavyweights like Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and power broker Grover Norquist are backing an effort to inform conservatives about the history of groups like the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), NumbersUSA and the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). (SNIP) Those organizations are now the leading conservative voices against immigration, both legal and illegal, and have received the endorsement of Republicans like Senators Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and...

    Only yesterday Jeb Bush was the Republican flavor of the week, the favorite of the Republican establishment, those wonderful folks who yearn for a nice man who oozes political propriety and respectability. Establishment Republicans — Rockefeller Republicans, they were once called — live in dread of frightening the horses. They’re something like the young man sent off to college with his mother’s entreaty to remember his raising ringing in his ears: “Remember, son, what you have been taught, go to church, say your prayers, avoid worldly temptations, stay away from loose women, and pay no attention to those who mock...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said in an interview broadcast Sunday that a step-by-step, long-term approach is the only option for immigration reform. ADVERTISEMENT "We can't do it in a massive piece of legislation," Rubio, who announced his presidential candidacy last week, said in a wide-ranging interview for CBS's "Face the Nation." "I know, 'cause I tried," Rubio added.Rubio outlined in the CBS interview the steps he would take for reform, stressing it would start with an E-Verify bill to track entrance and exit of migrants to improve border security, followed by modernizing the legal immigration system to make it "less...

    A federal appeals court signaled Friday that it is unlikely to allow President Barack Obama’s request to go ahead with a new round of relief for illegal immigrants, making it likely that the White House will have to take its legal case to the Supreme Court within days. The oral arguments before the 5th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans were being closely watched by both sides in the heated immigration debate as a sign of whether the administration will be able to move forward with its plan to grant quasi-legal status and work permits to about 4...
  • ‘Undocumented Immigrant Not a Criminal’ Proclaims CA Chief Law Officer Kamala Harris

    Breitbart California ^ | April 18, 2015 | Michelle Moons
    California’s chief law officer, Attorney General Kamala Harris, declared this week, “an undocumented immigrant is not a criminal,” a statement in direct contradiction to federal law. Illegally entering and remaining in the country is a federal crime. By stating that those who illegally enter or remain in the United States are not in violation of law is simply incorrect. However, many of these “undocumented immigrants” are not being prosecuted under the current administration. Last November, President Obama declared effective amnesty for an estimated five million illegally present aliens. Since then, Representative Luis Gutierrez has traveled the country, partnering with fellow...

    Over at American Thinker, Pedro Gonzales offers an excellent overview of the GOP field's positions on Amnesty. Here's the executive summary: only one candidate has never changed his position on the topic. Jeb Bush "...Jeb, as we all know, supports amnesty for illegal aliens, and he's proud of it. If he were running in Honduras, I would vote for him in a minute..." Marco Rubio "...Rubio co-authored a bill that would have given amnesty to illegal aliens. He has since tried to walk back from that..." Chris Christie "...Chris has been cagey on the subject, but one thing is clear:...

    NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — Ties between Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, political allies for more than a decade, are fraying as the Republican presidential campaign picks up. In public, mentor Bush and protege Rubio have avoided criticizing each other since Rubio announced his candidacy. But Bush allies have started quietly spreading negative information about Rubio's record. Also, supporters of the two Miami politicians are drawing contrasts between Rubio, a 43-year-old son of Cuban immigrants, and 62-year-old Bush, a member of one of the nation's most powerful political dynasties. "Sparks are going to fly," said Al...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), a 2016 GOP presidential candidate, said he believes that President Barack Obama’s first executive amnesty for so-called DREAMers—the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)—is “important” and he won’t reverse it himself if elected president. He delivered these remarks in a Spanish-language interview he gave to Univision’s Jorge Ramos. “I believe DACA is important. It can’t be terminated from one moment to the next, because there are already people benefiting from it,” Rubio said in Spanish on Ramos’s television program, according to an English translation provided by the media service Grabien. “But yes, it is going to...

    Loretta Lynch, the intentional enigma that is Barack Obama’s pick for attorney general, became a little less mysterious, due to a recent report by ABC News that brings into focus issues that should be of paramount importance and interest to gun owners. Also of concern is an approving testimonial for the nominee by “America’s Mayor,” anti-gun "Republican" Rudy Giuliani. While all “four hot button issues” in the ABC report are of general interest, two, amnesty for illegal aliens and ascertaining that everyone voting is, in fact, legally eligible to do so, have grave impacts on the future of the right...

    Loretta Lynch has found an unlikely ally — Jeb Bush. The Brooklyn US attorney, whose attorney general nomination has been stalled for months in the Republican-controlled Senate, is getting a helping hand from the former Florida governor and probable GOP presidential candidate. “I think that presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush said while campaigning in New Hampshire Thursday.
