  • LA Sen Candidate Cassidy Pledges Opposition to Amnesty

    Louisiana Senate candidate and current Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) expressed his opposition to increased guest workers, and support for securing the border before any further immigration reform was pursued in addition to repatriating the unaccompanied minors and family units that have recently crossed the border on Tuesday’s broadcast of “The Laura Ingraham Show.” “I sent a letter to the Speaker a year and a half ago saying we should pursue immigration reform in a stepwise process. First, secure the border, secure the border, secure the border [and] take care of visa overstays... We are on the record, you have to...

    Washington Examiner ^ | David M. Drucker
    Vanquished Republican Senate candidate Milton Wolf is expected to endorse Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback before the midterm elections, GOP sources said Wednesday. Brownback, a Republican, faces an unexpectedly tough re-election bid in usually deep red Kansas, and the GOP has worked hard to unite the party in the aftermath of a bitter Senate primary. (SNIP) National Tea Party endorsements have poured in for Roberts, among them pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson and talk radio host Laura Ingraham. Expected to roll through Kansas and endorse Roberts this month are Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky, as well...

    The Texas senator stands for conservative principles. Unfortunately, that's all he does with them.Is Ted Cruz good for conservatives? Or is it the other way around? The answer matters a lot, because it's not impossible that this guy could be the next GOP presidential nominee. A close adviser to Texas' junior senator told National Journal that there is a 90 percent chance the Tea Party star will run for president in 2016. "And honestly, 90 is lowballing it." Cruz denies that he has made plans past the midterms. But boy, he sure does look like a man preparing for a...

    Hundreds of airline passengers were exposed to the Liberian national before he landed in Dallas, last month, as it is revealed that he took at least three flights to get from Monrovia, Liberia to Texas. Officials announced that Thomas Eric Duncan flew through Brussels to get to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport - but no airlines operate a direct flight from the European capital to Dallas, meaning he had to take a connecting flight in between. U.S. officials have refused to release details of his itinerary, including which city he connected through - claiming that none of his fellow passengers are...

    President Barack Obama, Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and Secretary of State John Kerry are directly responsible for allowing Ebola into the United States, the Center for Immigration Studies Director of Policy Studies Jessica Vaughan told Breitbart News. Vaughan points to federal law--the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)--which she notes gives the administration “broad authority” to bar non-citizens like Thomas Eric Duncan, the first Ebola patient allowed into the U.S., from entering the country. The administration took no steps pursuant to that federal law, however, to block people like him from...

    What's the opposite of a "political earthquake"? If the primary defeat of Rep. Eric Cantor drained D.C.'s supply of dramatic analogies, the snap leadership election surprised almost no one. Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the party's occasionally competent whip, easily took Cantor's old job after a furtive conservative challenge from Rep. Raul Labrador. And Rep. Steve Scalise, a Louisiana conservative who had been leading the Republican Study Committee, nabbed McCarthy's job in one ballot. (SNIP) Why?

Under the program, immigrants from those countries who are lawfully in the United States will be able to request that child relatives still in those three countries be resettled in the United States as refugees. The program would establish in-country processing to screen the young people to determine if they qualify to join relatives in the U.S.

    The Obama administration is spending $4 million on lawyers for unaccompanied immigrant children in deportation proceedings, a move an influential Republican lawmaker says is illegal and will fuel an increase in illegal immigration. Kenneth Wolfe, a spokesman for the Department of Health and Human Services' said it is the first time the office that oversees programs for unaccompanied immigrant children will provide money for direct legal representation. The grants to two organizations are part of a bigger $9 million project that aims to provide lawyers to 2,600 children.
  • Reports: Former Gov. George Pataki considering presidential run

    Former New York Gov. George Pataki is reportedly considering running for president in 2016, though a former aide says talk of a campaign is premature. The New York Post reported Tuesday that Pataki is privately weighing whether to enter the wide-open Republican field. The paper says Pataki recently met with Republican donor David Koch. Pataki was governor from 1995 to 2006 and was mentioned as a potential presidential contender in the 2008 and 2012 elections. David Catalfamo, a former top Pataki adviser, says it's premature to talk about his former boss running for president. He says Pataki and Koch are...

Officials were caught off guard by about 70 new students mostly from Guatemala — part of the wave crossing the border — enrolling last year, mostly at Sussex Central High School. The students are eager but face barriers. Some can barely read or write in their native language. Donald Hattier, a school board member, said advance warning would have helped with planning.

Unaccompanied minors who made up the summer spike at the border have moved to communities of all sizes, in nearly every state, Federal data indicates, to live with a relative and await immigration decisions. The Supreme Court has ruled that schools have an obligation to educate all students regardless of their immigration status, so schools have become a safe haven for many of the tens of thousands of these young people mostly from...

And many Republicans say their momentum is largely thanks to President Barack Obama's planned executive amnesty.

Maine’s incumbent conservative GOP governor is locked in a dead heat for his position, holding fast after many in the political class thought it would be a cakewalk to make him a one-term proposition.

Ballot Measure 88, a citizens veto referendum also known as “Protect Oregon Driver Licenses,” will go before the voters this November after surviving legislative and legal challenges lodged by illegal-alien advocates. In 2008, Oregon enacted a law that required proof of citizenship or legal presence to obtain an Oregon driver license. Illegal-alien advocates sought to rescind that law in subsequent years and finally succeeding in 2013 with the passage of Senate Bill 833. That law instructed the Oregon Department of Motor...

And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

    Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Alison Lundergan Grimes released a web ad Wednesday, countering an attack ad from a pro-McConnell group last week that said she supports amnesty for undocumented immigrants. Grimes’ spot, titled “Say Anything,” features Republican U.S. Sens. John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina speaking in favor of an immigration reform bill that passed the Senate, without McConnell’s support, last year. The legislation ultimately died in the House. “This is not amnesty,” McCain says in the spot, taken from an appearance on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” The online ad can be viewed here: The ad comes...

    As the Senate wrapped up work before departing for the elections, Republicans forced a vote on the issue of immigration, wanting to put Democrats on record on the controversial issue of the president’s executive authority to expand the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. It’s obvious that, through the short-term lens of the coming election, this proved to be a smart political maneuver. In fact, four vulnerable Democrats sided with the Republicans and against the president because they were so worried about the political volatility of the vote. This follows a vote by House Republicans before the August recess that...

    The back-and-forth in the tight race between indicted Congressman Michael Grimm and his rival Domenic Recchia over foreign policy credentials continued last night with Mr. Recchia calling the sitting congressman’s behavior “embarrassing.” “Michael Grimm should be the last one to critique anyone or make a comment about anyone’s foreign policy issues,” Mr. Recchia, a Democrat, said last night on NY1. After Mr. Recchia, a former councilman from Brooklyn, was unable to answer questions from reporters last week on international trade issues, Mr. Grimm — a Republican who served in the first Gulf War as a U.S. Marine — slammed him...

    OCEANSIDE, Calif. - Three 18-year-olds were behind bars Tuesday on suspicion of defacing American flags in a North County senior housing neighborhood last summer. Ruben Jimenez, Daniel Moran and Breanna Alexis Serrato allegedly spray-painted the three flags -- writing "(expletive) USA" on one of them -- in the 3800 block of Rosemary Way in Oceanside late on the evening of July 18, according to Lt. Leonard Cosby. A surveillance camera captured images of the crimes, he said.

    Elites in the permanent political class are on the retreat, and no issue reflects that more than amnesty legislation. Not surprisingly, amnesty represents the divide between the Masters of the Universe in the bipartisan permanent political class and American workers. For nearly thirty years, American workers have held the line on amnesty. As Michael Lind notes in Politico Magazine, which is one of the favored publications of the permanent political class, Obama's recent executive amnesty delay was another "massive defeat for America’s elite consensus" and exemplified how when the public is presented with facts, they strongly come out against "the...

    “Unless,” the neurosurgeon and conservative activist adds in a caveat during his interview with Hugh Hewitt, “the American people indicate in November that they like big government intervention in every part of their lives.” What are the odds of that happening?

So yeah, Ben Carson is running for President, QED: CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO Is this to be taken seriously? This interview was significant enough for Politico to pick it...

    George P. Bush, Jeb Bush's son and Republican candidate for Texas land commissioner, said that in-state tuition for illegal immigrants is just a "nominal" cost to taxpayers. Speaking at The Texas Tribune Festival on Friday evening, Bush said that until someone can present a "sensible alternative" to the Texas's version of DREAM Act, he would support the the law that Texas Governor Rick Perry signed in 2001. Bush said in-state tuition for illegal immigrants is just "a nominal cost from an economic perspective" for the state of Texas. Bush also suggested that in-state tuition for illegal immigrants should be indexed....
