    Rasmussen Reports ^ | May 06, 2013
    President Obama met with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto late last week to discuss ways to reduce violence and drug trafficking along the border and stressed his continued support for immigration legislation that provides a pathway to citizenship for millions of illegal immigrants now in the United States. (SNIP) A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that just 30% of Americans view Mexico as an ally of the United States.

    Following the influx of illegal immigrant minors from Central America, an official at the federal agency charged with protecting public health describes Barack Obama as “the worst pres we have ever had,” an “amateur” and “Marxist,” according to internal emails obtained by Judicial Watch. JW got the records as part of an investigation into the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) activation of an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to deal with the barrage of illegal alien minors last summer. Tens of thousands of Central Americans came into the United States through the Mexican border and contagious diseases—many considered to be eradicated...

    It all started yesterday while poring over 33 years of Jeb Bush’s tax returns. In a demonstration of transparency, Bush, the former Florida governor and Republican presidential hopeful, tweeted out his e-mail address, inviting those curious about his finances to “email me directly.” (As governor, Bush encouraged Floridians to e-mail jeb@jeb.org. Many got a personal response). Bush campaign aides said jeb@jeb2016.com was meant for use by voters eager to hear from the candidate himself, but this reporter decided to give it a shot. So, I drafted an email, knowing that it might drop into the dustbin of cyberspace. Rather than...

    Donald Trump posted a statement from his campaign to Instagram on Wednesday to comment on a town hall event where President “Barrack Obama” (his misspelling) referred to some illegal immigrants as “gang-bangers.” While Trump plugged his “Make America Great Again” campaign and said that this was one of his rare agreements with the president, he said it was hypocritical that the liberal media’s not generating public outcry against Obama when his statements were “far less controversial.” Obama’s statements came off a question about the Affordable Care Act, where he went on to say that policy reform was necessary for resource...

Are you saying its women being raped. Who is doing the raping?” Trump bluntly asked, referring to...

    I think one thing Trump is doing correctly is ignoring specific details of questions he is being asked. 90% of the questions the GOP contenders will be getting asked will be total BS or a set up; and the bait should not be taken. In 2012, Juan Williams asked a stupid question about why the majority of blacks oppose the death penalty and whites support the death penalty. They should have used the question to attack affirmative action as being unconstitutional or busing for causing violence.

    Wen Donald Trump disparaged Mexican immigrants as “rapists” and drug-runners during his presidential announcement speech, the slurs were initially dismissed as just another outrageous pronouncement from the blustery billionaire. But as Latinos reel in anger and celebrities and corporate sponsors drop their associations with Trump, the Republican Party’s other presidential hopefuls face an increasingly uncomfortable choice: engage with Trump and elevate his already high visibility or stay silent and risk appearing to condone his statements. So far, most have said little, hoping the controversy will fade. -snip- Bush, whose wife is Mexican American and who has openly courted Latinos, has...

    Many conservatives — and, indeed, many people — have been confused about what, exactly, Marco Rubio’s position is on immigration now that he’s said he regrets his support for the failed Gang of Eight bill. In an interview with New Hampshire’s local ABC station on Friday, Rubio made clear that he remains a supporter of a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. “I do,” Rubio said, when asked if he supports a path to citizenship for those currently in the United States illegally. First, though, Rubio said lawmakers have to “prove to the American people that illegal immigration is under...

    Republican presidential candidate and US Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) saw his support drop dramatically in a new poll of Republican primary voters released Wednesday. The CNN poll showed that Rubio’s support has plunged to 6% among likely Republican primary voters. In May, he was leading the GOP pack with 14%. This drop represents the largest shift among any Republican candidate. Where most candidates remained statistically within the margin of error, Rubio’s drop is the only significant movement up or down among candidates.

    The Obama administration still hasn’t fully rescinded the 2,000 three-year amnesties it wrongly issued four months ago in violation of a court order, government lawyers recently admitted in court, spurring a stern response from the judge who said the matter must be cleaned up by the end of July — or else. It’s the latest black eye for President Obama’s amnesty policy and the immigration agency charged with carrying it out. The agency bungled the rollout, issuing three-year amnesties even while assuring the judge it had stopped all action hours after a Feb. 16 injunction. But they are having trouble...

    While the federal government stalls on immigration reform, some states have begun acting on their own. California has passed more than a dozen laws on immigrant integration between 2001 and the present. In mid-June, the state expanded healthcare access to all undocumented children and boosted spending for naturalization assistance. These various laws collectively produce a kind of state-level citizenship — call it "the California Package." The California Package is innovative in several respects. Not only does it grant rights to immigrants that are restricted at the federal level, but it also tends to blur the distinction between citizens, authorized, and...

Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL), one of the top Democrat immigration advocates who personally lobbied President Barack Obama for his executive order amnesty, praised Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush for his immigration position. “[L]ook at Jeb Bush right now,” Gutiérrez said. “One of the reasons I think he’s probably doing best or better in the Republicans is he had a pretty nice press conference out there. It was a diverse press conference. There were Latinos, he spoke English and Spanish. He was unafraid to speak both languages. And although he doesn’t have my...

    He may be the frontrunner on paper, but his campaign has fallen apart. In his official launch, he tried to turn the tide. Things ought to be pretty good for Jeb Bush right now. The former Florida governor leads by a narrow margin in national polls for the Republican presidential nomination, and by a wider margin in New Hampshire. He is overwhelmingly dominant in fundraising. And he does not lack for connections to the Republican donors, officials, and grandees collectively known as "the Establishment." Yet before Bush's campaign could even officially begin on Monday, it seemed to be falling apart....

    As governor of Florida, Jeb Bush used the Spanish word “presidente” instead of the English word – President – while communicating with one of his aides to describe Abe Lincoln, according to decade-old emails reported by the Washington Post. A day before South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley decided to remove the confederate flag from the state capitol grounds following the racially motivated shooting in a Charleston church, a Washington Post blog reported about how GOP presidential candidate and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush handled the confederate flag debate while he was governor of the Sunshine state. In his report, the...

    Importing a Potential EpidemicPosted By Arnold Ahlert On June 24, 2015 @ 12:24 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 2 Comments [1]By now most Americans are familiar with the Obama administration’s ongoing effort to force-feed amnesty for illegals to a largely recalcitrant American public. The most egregious part of this effort occurred during last year’s border “surge” when the administration not only embraced the admittance of tens of thousands of Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) into our nation, but the purposeful and secret dispersal [2] of them into all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. What Americans...

    BROWNSVILLE — A U.S. District Court judge ordered federal immigration authorities on Tuesday to rescind three-year work permits for 2,000 immigrants in the country illegally that had been issued in violation of his injunction. “I expect you to resolve the 2,000; I’m shocked that you haven’t,” Judge Andrew Hanen told Justice Department lawyers at a hearing in Brownsville. “If they’re not resolved by July 31, I’m going to have to figure out what action to take.” Hanen has mentioned possible sanctions against the government after he learned it had issued the work permits and deferrals from deporation for three years...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)80% cast the deciding vote for Obamatrade on Tuesday as it squeeked through the U.S. Senate 60-37, and his Senate office is still outright refusing to answer whether he even knew what he was voting on.

    Tens of thousands of illegal immigrant women and children streamed across the U.S. border last year seeking asylum and protected status, claiming a "credible fear" of going home to the violence in Central America. President Obama addressed the crisis through increased border enforcement, more detention beds, more immigration judges and pressure on political leaders in their home countries. But a year later, new data obtained exclusively by Fox News shows the policy isn't stopping the influx. Not only are illegal immigrant women and children continuing to cross the border in large numbers, but the majority charged with crimes aren't even...
  • Obama amnesty reaches illegals in prisons, jails -- Recognizes complaints of sanctuary cities

    The Obama administration has ordered agents to begin ignoring many of the illegal immigrants they encounter in local prisons and jails, as the president begins to implement a lesser-known part of his deportation amnesty program — a move that’s not sitting well with either side in the immigration debate. The move is a nod to sanctuary cities, who had begun to refuse to cooperate with federal authorities on immigration enforcement. After having court challenges, Mr. Obama bowed to those cities, counties and states and announced the changes as part of his November 2014 amnesty policy. Agents will still troll local...

    A graffiti artist supporting former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s (R) presidential campaign believes the Republican is doing something unprecedented.  Bush previewed his June 15 campaign announcement with a YouTube video featuring Antonio Asik Alonso, a Miami artist, spray painting a “#AllInForJeb” logo on a cargo container.  Alonso told Business Insider last week that the graffiti shows Bush is not your typical GOP presidential hopeful. “I mean this has never been seen before, a Republican using graffiti as a format to reach another audience,” he wrote in an email forwarded by Bush’s campaign. Alonso said he grew up in a Republican household and...

    A brand-new national NBC/WSJ poll finds Jeb Bush leading the crowded Republican presidential field, with 22% of GOP primary voters saying he's their first choice. He's followed by Scott Walker at 17%, Marco Rubio at 14%, and Ben Carson at 11%. While Jeb had a similar five-point lead in our April NBC/WSJ poll, you see his current position has strengthened when you look inside the numbers of this new poll. (It was conducted during the buildup and coverage of Bush's official presidential announcement on June 16.) The latest survey shows him ahead among self-identified conservative GOP primary voters -- when...
