    A B.C. father is blaming Canada's citizenship rules for keeping his kids separated from him and his home country. Patrick Chandler was stunned to learn despite being a Canadian citizen, he wasn’t able to pass on his citizenship to his four-year-old and nine-year-old children, who were born in China while he was working there. He attempted to bring his kids to Canada but was stopped at the last minute by Canadian officials. “(The worker) starts stamping the documents and says at the very last second, ‘Oh wait a second. You weren’t born in Canada and neither was your daughter. We...

    This Fourth of July, nearly 14,000 immigrants become America’s newest citizens, swearing the oath of allegiance at 27 naturalization ceremonies across the nation that coincide with the country’s 242nd birthday and the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. “When oath ceremonies are tied to the Fourth of July, it’s a message that immigrants believe in this country. It’s a beautiful and emotional thing,” Joshua Hoyt, executive director of the National Partnership for New Americans, said. “United nations, from Albania to Yemen, are represented in the ceremonies.” Hoyt added that NPNA believes “naturalization is good for the immigrants, their...

    Today’s Campaign Update (Because The Campaign Never Ends) CNN and MSNBC will demonize him for violating traffic laws.: Eric Trump caused panic among his Secret Service security detail on Monday when he rushed into New York City rush hour traffic to wave down a passing ambulance. He took this action in an attempt to aid a woman who had passed out near a train station. No word yet if Maxine Waters will now urge New York City’s drivers to run down anyone named Trump who rushes into a street to save a potentially dying woman, but it seems only a...

    The Trump administration announced Monday night it will be reinstating a citizenship question to the decennial census in 2020, prompting threats of lawsuits by prominent Democrats. Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra separately announced they will file respective lawsuits to stop the citizenship question from being asked during the census. Holder’s statement called the move by the Trump administration a “direct attack on our representative democracy.” Becerra called the decision, “illegal.” The Commerce Department, which oversees the census, issued a statement announcing the decision: Today, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced that a question...
  • Judge Andrew Napolitano: Can Immigrants Be Deported Without A Trial?

    Townhall ^ | 06/28/2018 | Judge Andrew Napolitano
    Last weekend, President Donald Trump argued that those foreigners who enter the United States unlawfully should simply be taken to the border, escorted across it and let go. According to the president, this would save precious government resources, avoid the business of separating children from their parents and free up the Border Patrol and other federal assets to do their jobs. He is undoubtedly correct on the beneficial consequences to the government of forced deportation without due process. Yet deportation without a trial is profoundly unconstitutional. Here is the back story. The nation has been torn apart by the images...

    Kansas officials are continuing to enforce a proof of citizenship law that a federal judge recently deemed unconstitutional. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported Wednesday that staff for Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach has directed county clerks to continue requiring voters to present documentary proof of citizenship. One county clerk said she was instructed to continue enforcing the policy "as we have been." Danedri Herbert, a spokeswoman for Kobach, told the news outlet that state officials still need time to fully understand the court’s ruling on the law. She argued that the judge did not provide a clear timeline for when...

    Are you a citizen of the United States? It seems like a simple enough question. But the Trump administration’s plan to add it to the 2020 census has caused a firestorm of protest. A multi-state lawsuit, led by New York’s Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, is being brought to prevent the question from appearing on the census. California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has filed a separate lawsuit over the same issue. Opponents claim the citizenship question will keep people from filling out the census, especially those not legally residing in the U.S. As Schneiderman put it in a release, the Trump...

    After the Commerce Department decided to ask if people filling out the census are citizens, the crazed racial Left mobilized and called the change the return of Jim Crow. The change to the Census was a plot against minorities. To them, Jim Crow keeps returning again and again. His return has more sequels than Rocky. Jim Crow first came back as Voter ID. Jim Crow returned as keeping voter rolls clean. Then Jim Crow rode into town, again, when Kansas sought to ensure that only citizens are registering to vote. Jim Crow also appeared when the federal Election Assistance Commission...

    The man who ran the 2000 census for the Clinton administration predicted Friday that more than 24 million people may refuse to take part in the 2020 count now that the survey is going to ask about citizenship status. Robert Shapiro, who was under secretary at the Commerce Department during the 2000 count, called the decision to ask about citizenship “dangerous.” He predicted 6.8 million illegal immigrants will duck the count altogether, as would about half of the 8.8 million legal residents who live in a household with an illegal immigrant present. The other half, he said, will likely lie...

    Democratic lawmakers and state officials lined up swiftly to try to block a Trump administration plan to ask 2020 Census respondents whether they are U.S. citizens, setting up a battle over the decennial population count. New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said he would lead a multistate lawsuit to stop the administration from adding the question to the next census after the administration announced its intention to do so late Monday night. Last month he and 18 other attorneys general and one governor wrote to Commerce Department Secretary Wilbur Ross, who oversees the Census Bureau, urging him not to proceed...

    A pollster hired by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach testified Monday that a survey of 500 adults he conducted found just one person who couldn't produce a document proving U.S. citizenship. The Topeka Capital-Journal reported his testimony came on the seventh day of a federal bench trial challenging Kansas' proof-of-citizenship requirement. Pollster Pat McFerron also acknowledged possible bias in his survey under questioning by an attorney for the American Civil Liberties Union.

    There is no doubt that I am lucky. I’m certainly not rich (though not for lack of trying), but I was born into a loving family, have a great wife and daughter, get to write for a living, and I was born an American. Over time I’ve grown to appreciate each of those things, as happens in life, more than I did when I was younger. But one of them has seen its value be diminished significantly – the being an American part. Don’t get me wrong, I love the United States, it’s the most amazing of all human experiments...

    Spain said Friday it would extend by one year a law that makes it easier for descendants of Jews who were forced to flee five centuries ago during the Inquisition to get citizenship. The law - which aims to correct the "historical mistake" of sending Jews into exile in 1492, forcing them to convert to Catholicism or burning them at the stake - came into effect in October 2015 and was set to expire in October 2018. But government spokesman Inigo Mendez de Vigo said Spain's cabinet had agreed to extend the measure by one year until October 2019. So...

    Right. And I’m the flippin’ King of Siam. Cesar Vargas, an illegal immigrant, told Tucker Carlson tonight: “I’m an American. Citizenship does not make me an American.” Tucker pointed out that citizenship is precisely what makes someone an American. Carlson also objected to Vargas repeatedly referring to what “we” as Americans have done. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    A Republican lawmaker wants to strip U.S. citizenship from foreign-born gang members, in response to escalating violence from MS-13 and other immigrant-based gangs. The bill by Rep. Lee Zeldin, New York Republican, is titled “Protecting our Communities from Gang Violence Act” and would revoke the naturalization of anyone who becomes involved in gang activity either 10 years before or 10 years after taking the U.S. citizenship oath.

    My Congressman Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) hosted another error-ridden town hall in Hermosa Beach last week. On immigration, he claimed to support two parts of President Trump’s proposed(?) plan: granting legal status to 1.8 million young illegals; and enhancing border security (although Lieu called the border wall “stupid”). He differed on ending chain migration and the diversity lottery. He quoted the Bible in his defense: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” (Matthew 25:35).My response: “Then take them...

    Washington (AFP) - US President Donald Trump's administration has unveiled a sweeping new immigration plan to Congress that offers 1.8 million young unauthorized immigrants known as "Dreamers" a path to citizenship over 10-12 years. In a comprehensive reform that will be formally presented next week, Trump also asked Congress Thursday to eliminate the popular "green card lottery" program and severely restrict family immigration, steps analysts say could cut in half the more than one million foreign-born people moving to the country annually.

    For those who have forgotten the 1986 Simpson-Mazzoli Act of 1986, here is a refresher. https://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/99/s1200 At the time, Congress PROMISED that the Amnesty given to ILLEGAL ALIENS would be a one time deal and would NEVER be brought up, again. President Reagan foolishly signed the bill into law.
