    Media Research Center ^ | August 15, 2011 | Dan Gainor and Iris Somberg
    On April 8, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi headlined a Boston conference on ''media reform.'' She was joined by four other congressmen, a senator, two FCC commissioners, a Nobel laureate and numerous liberal journalists. The 2,500-person event was sponsored by a group called Free Press, one of more than 180 different media-related organizations that receives money from liberal billionaire George Soros. Soros, who first made a name for himself in investing and currency trading, now makes his name in politics and policy. Since the 2004 election, the controversial financier has used his influence and billions to push a laundry list...

    Details about the much anticipated, bipartisan immigration proposal are starting to emerge even as the “Gang of Eight” senators who are drafting the immigration legislation cancelled their Tuesday press conference in response to the bombing at the Boston Marathon on Monday. Under the measure, immigrants who were in the United States before Dec. 31, 2011 and were deported for noncriminal reasons could return to the country with a provisional legal status if they a legal spouse or child in the country or if they qualify for the Dream Act This comes from a summary of the immigration bill slated to...

    A few years ago, I wrote a book, "Jesus Wept" an American Story. The story, in part, was about Cherokee Chief John Ross, a 1/8th Cherokee blood, white, blue eyed greedy tyrant. The more time goes on, the more he reminds me of Barak Obama. He was put in power by Major Ridge and some other realistic Cherokees, who thought the tribe, which functioned under a constitutional government, would fare better in Washington DC if represented by Ross who would be identified more with the white leaders. And for a time, that seemed to work. Until Ross got the taste...

    Washington Times ^ | April 12, 2013 | Rand Paul
    Congress is getting very close to debating comprehensive immigration reform. I am firmly committed to being part of reforming our nation’s immigration laws. Conservatives and liberals agree that our complex immigration system is broken and in need of repair. Although the two sides disagree on solutions, I have three important ideas that should be part of the debate and that should please most Americans. My “Trust but Verify” plan has three elements: secure the border, secure the vote and secure the taxpayer’s dollar. If these three elements are met, I think, Congress can move forward on a comprehensive plan to...
  • Three Questions on Immigration

    NRO ^ | April 10, 2013 | The Editors
    ‘Comprehensive immigration reform,” a deal on which is reportedly imminent, has a lot of moving parts — too many, in truth, as with most “comprehensive” legislation. Among the costs of comprehensivism is that debate over such bills often gets bogged down in the many details. Americans seeking to evaluate any deal should ask three questions about it to cut through the noise. First: Will it encourage future illegal immigration? This has always been the greatest risk of proposals to provide legal status for current illegal immigrants: that it will be seen as a reason for others to come here illegally...

    Right Wing News ^ | Mar. 23, 2013 | Joe Guzzardi
    The Republican National Committee’s latest report, released March 18 at the National Press Club, offers more evidence that the GOP is out of touch-but not in the way it thinks. According to what the RNC called an “autopsy” of what went wrong in the November 2012 election, it concluded that the party is perceived as comprised of “stuffy old men,” “scary” and needs to change its ways. The first course of action should be-guess what?-passing comprehensive immigration reform! Before anything else is done, said RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, Republicans must join together to pass amnesty. Nothing could have been more...

Yes, it’s me...I’d like to know if Senator Voinovich is aware that there are far more than 12 million illegal aliens in this country already and it is clear that our government’s use of that number is entirely meant to mislead the public. “Is that your message?”. Yes, I resent continuing to be treated as if I’m stupid. Apparently our Senators aren’t aware that Homeland...

    Politico ^ | October 4, 2010
    Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) said Sunday that he introduced an immigration bill just before Congress’ midterm elections break so he could get “lame-duck movement” on the legislation after Nov. 2. “A lot of senators are retiring and might be willing to look at the issue,” Menendez said...“We need something to jump off from if we’re going to go into it in the early part of the next Congress.” He said his bill has Republican proposals in it to entice GOP senators...But Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas)...suggested that GOP support will be difficult to get. “I hope to work with Sen. Menendez...

    With the exception of a quick special session by both the House and Senate to approve a $600 million supplemental spending bill to be used for border security, the month of August is typically used by Members of Congress to return to their home districts and reconnect with their constituents through Town Hall meetings. This August, Democrats and Republicans are facing questions from citizens in their district on the issue of immigration. Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-Md.), who has the best career immigration-reduction grade from the Maryland delegation, an A, commented on border security and the 14th Amendment. On the issue...

    Creating Orwellian Worldview ^ | 6/7/10 | Alaphiah
    No matter how much one says it—It cannot be said enough discussing any subject with a Progressive Liberal is like stepping through an alternate Orwellian world full of doublethink and newspeak. For example, the term Comprehensive Immigrant Reform means Amnesty to Progressives like president Barry Hussein Soetoro. Not because I say it does but because they say it does. (see 1:25min video) The first thing that one must do when speaking to a Progressive Liberal is reject how they frame the conversation or you will undoubtedly be caught up in an endless loop of attempting to argue reasonability from a...

    Frustrated by the lack of progress on immigration reform, area Latino Democrats are forming a new group to pressure the Obama Administration to take action on the issue. Latino Democratic politicians and community activists who voted for President Barack Obama say he has failed to fulfill a campaign pledge to overhaul immigration laws. "It's way overdue," said Gil Navarro, a member of the San Bernardino County board of education. "That was one of the promises the President gave us and we want to hold him accountable like any other public official." Navarro is creating a Latino Democratic Caucus of the...

    A new survey by Zogby International finds that people in Mexico think that granting legal status to illegal immigrants in the United States would encourage more illegal immigration to the United States. As the top immigrant-sending country for both legal and illegal immigrants, views on immigration in Mexico can provide insight into the likely impact of an amnesty, as well as other questions related to immigration. Among the findings: * A clear majority of people in Mexico, 56 percent, thought giving legal status to illegal immigrants in the United States would make it more likely that people they know would...

    Rick Sanchez, who currently hosts the network's 3pmET hour of "CNN Newsroom," will be getting a new show, titled "Rick's List" in 2010. Sanchez's program will now air for two hours, from 3-5pmET, and Wolf Blitzer's "Situation Room" will eventually be reduced from three hours to two, airing from 5-7pmET. Blitzer will also fill-in the 7-8pmET slot until John King's show launches early next year. CNN tells us that Sanchez and Blitzer, appropriately, made the initial announcement themselves over twitter in order to get it out to their followers first (both have well over 100,000). Today, Sanchez tweeted: Hey guys,...

    Amnesty: the act of an authority (as a government) by which pardon is granted to a large group of individuals. The advocates for the "comprehensive immigration reform" bill that was recently introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives (H.R. 4321) claim that it is not an amnesty bill because illegal aliens have to pay a $500 fine, which is roughly 5 percent of the cost of the services of a good "coyote" or alien-smuggler. This means that for a $500 payment, illegal aliens will be granted total amnesty from the multiple felonies that they commit in order to get jobs...

    Just yesterday I wrote a commentary about the value of United States citizenship not only to decent law abiding citizens of our country but also to a small group of terrorists and criminals who understand that the coveted United States passport that citizens of our nation are eligible to receive enables them to move freely across our nation, gain access to various jobs that may have national security implications and also provides them with the ability to move freely across our nation’s borders and often easily gain entry into other countries. The commentary I wrote yesterday related to a United...

    ...Governor, let me ask you about immigration. How many undocumented immigrants are there in Alaska? I don't know, I don't know. That's a good question. As governor, how do you deal with them? Do you think they all should be deported? There is no way that in the US we would roundup every illegal immigrant -there are about 12 million of the illegal immigrants- not only economically is that just an impossibility but that's not a humane way anyway to deal with the issue that we face with illegal immigration. Do you then favor an amnesty for the 12 or...

    Dear Conservative Base - I know that culturally, we may be on different planets. Yet after what I watched on C-SPAN2, a am so angered at Democrats and Bernie Sanders that I am now crossing over here. I know that perhaps many of you will see me as an example that they will wish upon many other foreign intellectuals so they won't try again "abusing" the H1B visa category the US government offered. I am extremely angered by the mainly Democrats and Sanders sacrificing those that patiently waited and have done anything legally (!), whether citizen or legal immigrant, to...

    Associated Press ^ | 01/10/07 | DAVID N. GOODMAN
    The University of Michigan announced Wednesday it will comply with a new voter-approved ban on affirmative action and immediately stop considering race and gender in admissions. ADVERTISEMENT The move came in the middle of the admissions process for next fall's freshman class. The university has already begun sending out acceptance and rejection letters. The state constitutional amendment approved by the voters in November bans the use of race and gender preferences in public university admissions and government hiring and contracting. After it passed, the university put its admission process on hold and asked the courts that it be given until...
