    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-CA) said during a Thursday House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing that illegal aliens residing in her district were her “constituents.” Ocasio-Cortez, who led with a quote from Kansas Republican Secretary of State Kris Kobach, asked Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross about his plan to add a “citizenship question” to the 2020 U.S. Census when she made the remarks about illegal aliens being her constituents. “Mr. Kobach later emailed to you on July 14 writing that the lack of the citizenship question ‘leads to the problem that aliens who do not actually reside in the United States...

    In a PJ Media exclusive, the Iraqi native turned Navy SEAL interpreter and bestselling author who goes by the code name "Johnny Walker" told his story and made a huge announcement: he will receive his U.S. citizenship on Wednesday morning! At that time, he will also reveal his real name. (This article will be updated with that name when it becomes public.) "It's a big honor," Walker told PJ Media. He is looking forward to posting videos of the ceremony and predicted a beautiful moment where "people from different backgrounds and different religions" will be united by loyalty to the...

    Political scientists predicted in court testimony that California would lose billions in federal funds plus at least one and possibly as many as three seats in the House — and the same number of electoral votes — if the citizenship question were to be used next year.
  • Judge rules 'ISIS bride' lawsuit for US citizenship will not be fast-tracked

    “ISIS bride” Hoda Muthana’s citizenship case will not be fast-tracked, a judge ruled Monday — waving off her family’s fears that the US might withdraw from Syria before her suit is resolved. DC federal court Judge Reggie Walton denied her family’s request to expedite their suit, saying their argument that she could get stuck in Syria or put in danger if American troops pull out involved too much speculation. “The case will need to adhere to the normal course of the flow of litigation” and “proceed on the normal track,” Walton said. Department of Justice attorney Scott Stewart argued Muthana’s...

    That one state? Vermont. The same state that sent an avowed socialist to the U.S. Senate.So, really, we’re 0 for 50 as a country on basic civics.We can debate whether immigrants raise the crime rate but there’s no question that naturalized citizens are raising America’s baseline rate of awareness about its own history. You can test your own knowledge at the Woodrow Wilson Foundation’s tabulation page. (Says Drew McCoy, “The idea that an institute honoring Woodrow Wilson is teaching anyone about civics is the real civic disaster.”) The closest I came to a “tricky” question was one which asked...

    A federal judge ruled on Friday the US government can include citizenship question on the US Census. It makes complete sense so Democrats are against it. It also affects how much federal funding the sanctuary communities will receive from American taxpayers. So, of course, Democrats are against this. Outline reported: A federal judge ruled late Friday she is unconvinced of an immediate need to block a citizenship question from the 2020 census over privacy concerns. US District Judge Dabney Friedrich declined to issue a preliminary injunction requested by a privacy and civil liberties nonprofit group, the Electronic Privacy Information Center....

    Back on November 26, Maryury Hernandez, a God-fearing pregnant migrant from Honduras, entered the country with her husband and three-year-old son in search of "better lives" for her children and "to keep them safe" (so she makes the hazardous trek north?), says journalist Ruben Navarrette, who is "extremely grateful for his citizenship." The problem is, she entered illegally, which makes her eligible for deportation. "I feel like a criminal," said Maryury. She is a criminal. A pregnant foreigner may go to the U.S. to give birth. She doesn't violate any U.S. laws if she has a visa. Still, U.S. Customs,...

    An Indiana state senator is recommending high school students pass a citizenship test in order to graduate. Sen. Dennis Kruse is proposing a bill that requires students in public high school to pass a 100-question citizenship test in order to officially graduate, The Journal Gazette reported. The same examination used by immigrants to become legal U.S. citizens would be administered to the students if Senate Bill 132 passes. The same bill proposed in 2015 was defeated by the full Senate. “There is a deficiency in government and civics knowledge, and it’s getting worse,” the Indiana Republican told The Journal Gazette....

    The survey, released Oct. 3 by the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation with the research firm Lincoln Park Strategies, sampled 1,000 American adults. It showed that only 36 percent actually passed the test. Respondents 65 and older scored the best (74 percent), while only 19 percent of test-takers 45 and younger passed.

    Australian nationals convicted of terror offenses would be stripped of their citizenship if the government believes they are entitled to apply for residency from another country, Prime Minister Scott Morrison proposed on Thursday. Australia, a staunch U.S. ally that sent troops to Afghanistan and Iraq, has seen a spate of attacks by home-grown militants in recent months, including a stabbing attack in the country’s second largest city less than two weeks ago. Morrison proposed allowing the government to weaken current constraints that permit terror convicts to be stripped of their Australian citizenship only if they are already dual nations and...

  • Black Americans Deserve Clarification on Birthright Citizenship

    11/13/2018 5:07:18 PM PST · by Kaslin · 10 replies ^ | November 13, 2018 | Carl Jackson
    How do you undermine America’s long held motto, “E Pluribus Unum,” while systematically destroying America’s sovereignty? One illegal alien at a time. I believe illegal immigrants are more likely to reject assimilating into American culture and instead embrace Democratic class-warfare - a strategy designed by the left to keep a permanent underclass voting bloc that will remain dependent upon some form of welfare. For this reason, I give kudos to President Trump for signing a proclamation that will require migrants to apply for asylum at our legal ports of entry. This is important so that we know who’s coming into...

    I don't know what President Trump has in mind for his proposed executive order regarding birthright citizenship, but it seems the easiest way is to order that federal government agencies cease treating those claiming birthright citizenship as U.S. citizens. For example, he could order passport applicants to submit not only a U.S. birth certificate, but also evidence that at least one parent was a U.S. citizen. It seems that this wouldn't be an improper attempt for the Executive Branch to make law. Rather, it would be the Executive Branch enforcing the Constitution, as it's required to do. This order would...

    The debate over how to sift out illegal voters from legal ones has reached the federal appeals court level, making it possible the Supreme Court eventually will rule whether a state can demand a birth certificate to register to vote. The case before the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver centers on a 2011 Kansas law, the Documentary Proof of Citizenship (DPOC). In June, a district court judge struck down the law, with biting criticism of analysts who contend a large number of noncitizens nationwide vote illegally, tilting close elections to Democrats. Judge Julia A. Robinson said the Kansas...

    Citizenship in the United States is earned and properly passed down to those born to citizens in good standing, not passersby or illegal aliens A current favorite label used against political foes is “demonize.” If “racist” doesn’t do the trick of marginalizing ideological opponents then commentators, candidates and hacks are quick to defend themselves by complaining they’re being demonized by the opposition. This week, Don Lemon, who is no journalist and hardly regarded as credible by serious news professionals (of which there are less than a few left in the world), managed to hit the height of irony in his...
