  • Lindsey Graham Tanks Among Republicans

    U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham’s approval rating among Republican voters in South Carolina has plunged by fourteen points in just two months – evidence of growing dissatisfaction with his increasingly leftward ideological bent. According to the results of a new Winthrop University poll, Graham’s approval rating among GOP voters in the Palmetto State is 57.5 percent – down from 71.6 percent in February. “This drop corresponds to the entry of two vocal challengers, and discussion of a third, into the primary race against him,” the Winthrop pollsters note. It also comes on the heels of Graham’s high profile attack against fiscally...

    The fate of 12 million illegal aliens estimated to be living in the United States is hotly debated in Washington, D.C. Unfortunately, the problem is a symptom of beltway politicians' failure to enforce immigration laws and modernize our legal immigration system. At this point, some form of legal status for many illegal residents is necessary for a practical solution. But every elected leader has an obligation to ensure America remains the land of opportunity. That means stopping the current tide of illegal entry and residency with improved border security and visa tracking. At the same time, we must reformulate and...

    President Barack Obama called Sen. Marco Rubio a “positive force” in the immigration debate and is “reasonably confident” that an immigration deal will be reached, he said in a wide-ranging exclusive interview with NBC’s “Today” show. “I think that he has been a very positive force,” he said of Rubio (R-Fla.), who is a member of the Senate’s bipartisan immigration reform team. Speaking with Savannah Guthrie from the White House, Obama continued, “As have all the senators who’ve been involved. … And my hope is not only that we … end up with an immigration bill that shows that we’re...
  • Immigration bill bans racial profiling by federal law enforcement

    The immigration bill senators introduced Wednesday bans racial profiling by federal law enforcement officers in most routine encounters, such as traffic stops. Under current federal law and court precedents, racial discrimination is illegal — but there is no specific ban on racial profiling by federal officers. But buried inside the 844-page Senate immigration bill is a section specifically prohibiting the use of race or ethnicity as a factor in “routine or spontaneous law enforcement decisions, such as ordinary traffic stops.” Still, that language already represents a compromise. An earlier draft of the bill, reviewed by The Washington Times, had applied...
  • The Gang of Ocho’s huge border security loophole

    The Washington Examiner's Beltway Confidential ^ | April 17, 2013 | Conn Carroll
    Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., produced a press release today claiming that his new “Border Security, Economic Opportunity & Immigration Modernization Act” creates “six security trigger steps that must be met before any currently illegal immigrant is given access to a green card.” And it is true. His bill does create six such triggers. But it also creates a huge loophole that makes them entirely irrelevant. From the bill: (B) EXCEPTION.—The Secretary shall permit registered provisional immigrants to apply for an adjustment to lawful permanent resident status if — (i)(I) litigation or a force majeure has prevented one or more of...
