  • There’s Nothing Conservative About The GOP DACA Bill

    The Daily Caller ^ | 9/30/2017 | Henry Rodgers and Will Racke
    A pair of Republican senators are marketing their bill to legalize the beneficiaries of an executive amnesty program as a tougher alternative to a competing Democratic proposal, but immigration skeptics say the bills are hardly different in substance. Known as the “Succeed Act,” the GOP bill would give legal status to younger illegal immigrants covered under the now-cancelled Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. It requires applicants to meet strict education or work requirements to be eligible for a green card and lays out a 15-year path to citizenship — 10 years in a conditional status period and then...

    The Fresno Republican Party’s annual fundraising dinner, which this year features controversial former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, has been moved to Sunnyside Events in southeast Fresno. The event had previously been scheduled for a 5:30 p.m. start Sept. 29 at TorNino’s Banquets on Blackstone Avenue near Shaw Avenue. Prior to that, it was scheduled for Sept. 23 at TorNino’s. Fresno County Republican Party Chairman Fred Vanderhoof said his organization decided to move the event because of concerns about tie-ups on a main traffic hub such as the area near TorNino’s. Sunnyside Events, at 5707 E. Balch Ave. in Fresno,...

    State Atty. Gen. Xavier Becerra on Wednesday filed a brief in support of a Santa Clara County lawsuit challenging President Trump's executive order targeting "sanctuary" cities that refuse to help federal authorities enforce immigration laws. The amicus brief cites Trump's threat to withhold federal funds from sanctuary cities and counties as well as the state's interest in protecting state laws and policies that promote public safety and protect the constitutional rights of residents, Becerra said.

    SACRAMENTO -- Slamming the Republican Congress for dropping the ball on immigration reform, Democratic legislative leaders on Tuesday unveiled a sweeping package of bills that would dramatically expand protections for illegal immigrants far beyond what's offered by any other state. The 10 pieces of legislation would offer state-subsidized health care coverage to the undocumented poor, make it illegal for businesses to discriminate against customers based on their immigration status or the language they speak, and make it harder for federal authorities to deport immigrants living here illegally.

    “We were never going to win in Congress.” That is the epitaph spoken by Speaker Boehner ally Representative Tom Cole on the collapse of House Leadership’s resolve to legislatively fight Executive Amnesty. It may also be the final nail in the coffin for the notion of co-equal branches of government, as President Obama has already announced that he is considering using unilateral executive actions to ban ammunition and raise corporate taxes, on top of his massive Internet regulation announced last week.

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — As he was sworn in for a record fourth term, Gov. Jerry Brown charted an ambitious new goal on Monday for California in its fight against climate change, challenging the nation's most populous state to increase renewable energy use to 50 percent in the next 15 years.
  • Unions launch recruiting push for immigrants protected by Obama actions

    America's struggling labor unions got a gift this year when President Obama announced his expansive executive actions on immigration: potentially thousands, if not millions, of new members. Labor leaders reportedly are launching a new recruiting push by reaching out to those immigrants affected by Obama's immigration announcement last month. The actions are expected to offer work permits to some 4 million immigrants who entered the U.S. illegally and, until now, were reluctant to join unions for fear of retaliation. Union leaders now say the president's actions give them new protections -- and are keen on signing them up.
  • Stephen Kessler: Why all Californians are Mexican

    Santa Cruz Sentinel ^ | 16 November 2014 | Stephen Kessler
    The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848, which ended the Mexican War and for a cool $15 million acquired what is now the entire southwestern United States — Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and parts of Wyoming and Colorado — from Mexico was an uncannily well-timed moment in U.S. history. Could American negotiators have known that within a year gold would be discovered in California and the flood of Anglo and other immigrants into this state would be the beginning of a population boom still going on 165 years later?

    WATSONVILLE -- Much to the fanfare of locals, El Salvador's vice president, Salvador Sánchez Cerén, made a stop in Watsonville on Saturday to greet elected officials and residents of Salvadoran descent. There are an estimated 5,000 people of Salvadoran decent in Santa Cruz County, said Assemblyman Luis Alejo, D-Watsonville. A former mayor, Oscar Rios, is of Salvadoran descent. "I think it's only natural that the vice president come here to the community to see how we can work and create a great relationship between California and El Salvador in terms of a wide range of issues," Alejo said. Among the...

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 24 June 2013 | Gabriela Morongiello
    According to Sen. John McCain, a member of the Senate’s Gang of Eight, criminals will not be legalized under the proposed bipartisan immigration bill. “Anyone who has committed crimes in this country is going to be deported,” the Arizona Republican declared on the Senate floor last week. However, as Washington Examiner columnist Byron York recently reported, “the bottom line is an immigrant could have more than three misdemeanor convictions in his background check and still qualify for legalization.”

    TOPEKA -- About 50 college students who are in the U.S. illegally marched Tuesday on Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach's office urging him to stop working on immigration laws and to do his state job. The students from Kansas and Arizona delivered a letter to a staff member, who said Kobach was in his office but unable to meet with the students. The letter calls for Kobach to stop working on immigration laws and focus on his duties as secretary of state or resign for office. "I'm still standing and fighting to have the American dream," said Ernesto de...

    Does anyone read the U.S. Constitution these days? American lawyers don’t read it. Federal Judge Susan R. Bolton apparently has never read it. Same goes for our illustrious Attorney General Eric Holder. But this lawyer has read it and she is going to show you something in Our Constitution which is as plain as the nose on your face. Article III, Sec. 2, clause 2 says: In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the...

    U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, a Mexican-American who overcame high obstacles on the road to success, is urging Hispanic parents to join the battle against the drug abuse, crime and street gangs that have harmed Latino communities. "If we allow drugs, gangs and crime to ravage our communities ... we will not realize the leadership potential of our community," he said Tuesday night at the National Council of La Raza's Capital Awards Gala. Gonzales was the featured speaker at the NCLR event, where Sen. Christopher Dodd (D-Conn.) and Rep. Chris Cannon (R-Utah) were recognized for their work in Congress to...

    Many Mexicans who voted for Vicente Fox are bewildered. Four years into his term as president, the man who promised to kick the Institutional Revolutionary Party, or PRI, out of power forever now seems to have been kidding. The PRI is coming back, winning state election after state election, and Mexico's first president elected in a free and fair race doesn't appear to be doing anything about it. But other Mexicans should, because if the former ruling party returns to office in the next presidential election, in 2006, the country's democracy will have been short-lived. If the PRI returns, it...

    QUITO, Ecuador Mexico and Washington agreed to introduce similar legislative initiatives whereby Mexican workers who paid into Social Security in the United States will be refunded their contributions when they return to their homeland, President Vicente Fox said here Monday. "The initiatives entail the recognition of all those (Mexicans) who have worked in the United States legally or otherwise, so they will have the right to the savings they accumulated while working in the neighboring country," said Fox, who is visiting Ecuador. During a news conference with Mexican journalists accompanying him on his travels, Fox announced that he and U.S....
