    President Trump may urge lawmakers to pass a compromise immigration reform bill during his speech to a joint session of Congress Tuesday night, a senior administration official told television network anchors who met with the president. Trump believes a major immigration bill is necessary but would require "a softening on both sides. There's got to be a coming together," the official said, according to CNN. Trump envisions a proposal that would allow some undocumented immigrants live and work in the U.S. without fear of deportation, but would stop short of offering them a pathway to citizenship. Such a move would...

    Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace submitted newly-minted 2016 GOP frontrunner Scott Walker to thirteen minutes of sustained questioning about his record and his (mis)statements Sunday morning, the most notable moment of which came when Walker conceded after several minutes of interrogation that he’d “changed” his views on immigration.

    CHQ Chairman Richard A. Viguerie made the point in his book TAKEOVER that the greatest impediment to governing America according to conservative principles is not the Democrats – it is the progressive establishment of the Republican Party. And there is no better proof of this theorem than the role Kentucky Republican Representative Hal Rogers, Chairman of the House Appropriations Committee, is playing in the current battle over President Obama’s plan to grant an unconstitutional amnesty to millions of illegal aliens. Before the final tallies of the votes in the 2014 midterm wave were even official Rogers announced that he was...
  • Jeb Bush Suggests Republicans Should Pass Amnesty if They Win Back Senate

    09/26/2014 11:00:37 AM PDT · by E. Pluribus Unum · 95 replies ^ | 09/25/2014 | Tony Lee
    Even though Republicans may take back the Senate by running against amnesty, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush pushed amnesty legislation while stumping for North Carolina Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis on Wednesday. Bush, according to the New York Times, reportedly said that comprehensive immigration reform "will restore and sustain economic growth for this country." And even though a recent Gallup poll found that illegal immigration is now the top concern among Republicans, Bush said that if immigration reform is "framed in that way, I don’t think there’s a big debate in the Republican Party about the need to do this."

    There is rarely a good time to do hard things, and America won't advance if legislators act like seat-warmers. When I learned that House Majority Leader Eric Cantor had lost his Republican primary, my heart sank. Not simply because I think he is an intelligent and talented member of Congress, or because I worry about the future of the Republican Party. Like others who want comprehensive immigration reform, I worried that Mr. Cantor's loss would be misconstrued and make Congress reluctant to tackle this urgent need. That would be the wrong lesson and an undesirable national consequence of this single,...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama on Monday froze the U.S. assets of seven Russian officials, including top advisers to President Vladimir Putin, for their support of Crimea's vote to secede from Ukraine. The sanctions are the most comprehensive since the end of the Cold War. Obama said he was moving to "increase the cost" to Russia, and he warned that more people could face financial punishment.

    Following the passage of a lead ammunition ban and a plethora of new gun control laws in 2013, California Democrats now say they will push for "comprehensive" background checks on all ammunition purchases in the state. According to The Washington Post, CA State Senator Kevin de Leon (D) said, "Anyone can walk into any gun store, a bait and tackle store, and purchase all the ammunition they want to, no questions asked." He said it ought not be so: "The ammunition is the fuel that feeds the violence. The gun itself, the hand gun or long gun or the high-powered...

    We have had comprehensive legislation on medical care and immigration reform. Comprehensive is "Good." Reform is "Good." So let's do it right! And, of course, turn about is fair play.The beauty of comprehensive legislation is that nobody knows what's in it or what it means until (if ever) long after it passes and gets signed into law. ObamaCare? Few if any of our brilliant (or, for that matter, not-so-brilliant) members of the Congress knew what it would or could mean when they voted for it. Read it? It was far too long and complicated for that, and they had far more...

    Even First Lady Michelle would caution against consuming an entire ten course meal in one mouthful and direct instead that each bite be chewed separately and thoroughly, swallowed cautiously and then digested. Comprehensive immigration reform has more than ten courses, yet we are in danger of swallowing an entire garbage pail full without even examining the contents. Comprehensive reform in generalAddressing all aspects of complicated matter in one swell foop, demanded quickly because "we can't wait," often turns out to have been a serious blunder. That happened with ObamaCare and could easily happen again should comprehensive immigration "reform" produce an even worse situation than now exists...

    In her recent Washington Post article (“Why should Republicans favor immigration reform?”, Jennifer Rubin claims that the majority of Republicans embrace several core beliefs about immigration. I have not met the majority of Republicans, so I cannot definitively address the truth of that particular claim. But I can address the validity of her ideas in and of themselves. Her piece is a reflective of a mindset widely but irrationally embraced by establishment Republicans. According to their way of thinking, the Republican Party should secure its electoral future by bending far enough to the left on immigration to secure a...

    Sen. Rand Paul says he'll wait until 2014 to decide whether to run for president, but he believes voters are ready for a Libertarian-minded Republican candidate. "I would absolutely not run unless it were to win," the Kentucky Republican said on "Fox News Sunday." "Points have been made, and we we will continue to make points. But I think the country is really ready for the narrative coming — the Libertarian Republican narrative." Voters want a "different face," he said. In order to expand the party's reach, Paul believes the GOP should embrace candidates who are willing to push a...

    Of all the misguided, corrupt and deranged ideas floating around inside the D.C. bubble, perhaps the single worst one is giving illegal aliens amnesty as part of some sort of attempt to capture the Hispanic vote. If the GOP were to pursue a policy that primarily benefits corrupt business owners, the government of Mexico, and Democrats at the expense of our country and our own base, we'd truly deserve the "Stupid Party" moniker that has so often been hung around our neck. This policy wouldn't be a calculated risk or even a longshot; it would be a game of Russian...

    In an interview with Univision Radio, President Obama said that he has 'five years' left in his presidency to figure out issues like comprehensive immigration reform. Striking a confident note about his reelection prospects, Obama assured a largely Hispanic audience that he has not given up on getting an immigration bill done — one that would provide a pathway to citizenship. "My presidency is not over," Obama told Univision's Eddie “Piolin” Sotelo "I’ve got another five years coming up. We’re going to get this done." Obama also said that Hispanic voters would ultimately face an easy choice in deciding between...

    DURBAN, South Africa (AP) — An all-encompassing climate deal "may be beyond our reach for now," the U.N. chief said Tuesday as China and India delivered a setback to European plans to negotiate a new treaty that would bind all parties to their pledges on greenhouse gas emissions. The European "road map" toward a new accord that would take effect after 2020 is a centerpiece of negotiations among 194 countries at a U.N. climate conference in the South African coastal city of Durban. It has been presented as a condition for Europe to renew and expand its emissions reduction targets...

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) said Thursday that President Obama assured her that he would send White House staff members to her state to talk with officials about efforts to secure the U.S.-Mexico border. The governor said her meeting with Obama in the Oval Office was cordial, despite their disagreement over the widely criticized state law she signed in April, which gave police greater powers to enforce federal immigration laws. The White House said Obama would like Brewer to work with him to help pass comprehensive changes to the immigration system that would provide a path to citizenship for those...

    Victor Davis Hansen has written a piece entitled Beware of ‘Comprehensive’ Anything, in which he details how Comprehensive legislation rarely becomes law, and any that does is usually disastrous. Just take a look at the ‘Comprehensive’ bills or strategies we’ve had in the past few years: * Comprehensive health care reform * Comprehensive climate change reform (cap-and-trade) * Comprehensive reset of foreign policy * Comprehensive immigration reform * Comprehensive social security reform As much as I would have liked to see the last item enacted, Hansen has a point. Americans are resistant to sweeping change, and it has proven to...
