    President Trump threw his support Wednesday behind a Senate bill that would cut legal immigration in half and implement a new merit-based system that emphasis English-speaking immigrants who can demonstrate job skills. Meeting at the White House with GOP Sens. David Perdue of Georgia and Tom Cotton of Arkansas, the bill’s sponsors, the president said the revised legislation “would represent the most significant reform to our immigration system in half a century.” The measure, known as the RAISE Act, “will reduce poverty, increase wages and save taxpayers billions and billions of dollars,” Mr. Trump said. The legislation would slash legal...
  • Dana Point bar sparks furor over 'green cards' and an inflatable wall for Cinco de Mayo

    Bar owner Paul Hennessey says he wanted to get people talking. To mark Cinco de Mayo, his Dana Point bar set up an inflatable wall for patrons to climb over — and handed out “green cards” that guaranteed one free drink to those who clambered to the top. Since then, Hennessey’s Tavern has gotten angry phone calls. Yelp reviewers have called the Cinco de Mayo event disgusting, tasteless and racist.

    U.S. green card holders will require additional screening before they can return to the United States, the White House said on Saturday. Earlier, a Department of Homeland Security official said people holding green cards, making them legal permanent U.S. residents, were included in President Donald Trump's executive action temporarily barring people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.

    The number of illegals seeking asylum to gain easy access to the United States has jumped 900 percent in less than 10 years, greatly expanding the Immigration population receiving Social Security, school loans, green cards, welfare and other taxpayer funded services, according to figures from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. While about 8,000 mostly Latin Americans in 2009 sought asylum, the number is expected to reach 80,000 or more this year, according to a projection from the Center for Immigration Studies.

    The number of green cards being issued to alien brides married to Americans has tripled in one year, evidence of the latest bid by illegal immigrants to use the legal system to gain quick citizenship, according to a new report. The Center for Immigration Studies, reviewing newly issued data from Customs and Immigration Services, found the surge among women claiming that their American citizen husbands are abusing them.

Included in the totals are refugees, who are required to apply for a green card after one year of residency in the U.S. Unlike other types of immigrants, refugees are immediately eligible for welfare benefits including Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF), food stamps, and Medicaid Green Card Totals, FY09-FY14: Pakistan (102K), Iraq (102K), Bangladesh (90K), Iran (85K), Egypt (56K), Somalia (37K), Uzbekistan (30K), Turkey (26K), Morocco (25K), Jordan (25K), Albania (24K), Afghanistan (21K), Lebanon (20K), Yemen...
  • U.S. Gives 680,000 Green Cards to Migrants from Muslim Nations

    Judicial Watch ^ | April 14, 2016
    With Islamic terrorism on the rise in the United States and Western Europe, it’s worth mentioning that the Obama administration issued around 680,000 green cards to foreigners from Muslim countries during a five-year period, according to data published by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The stats, the latest made available by DHS, also show that the U.S. government admits more than double the number of immigrants from Muslim nations than from the European Union. This disturbing information was circulated by the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on Immigration, which assesses that if there’s no change in the current policy, the...

    The de facto immigration policy of the United States is to rapidly increase the number of Muslims in this country. I doubt very much that this has been articulated, but it is what is happening, beneath the radar. Donald Trump’s proposed ban on Muslim entry has riled the elites but received majority support in every poll that I have seen. The plain fact is that Islam is a political ideology that requires its adherents to support the imposition of sharia law, which is deeply antithetical to our Constitution. Now comes a report from the Senate Subcommittee on Immigration and...

    The Department of Homeland Security’s Inspector General John Roth has issued a report that, in any private sector company, would have people fired, but in government will probably only see budgets increased. You see, the people in charge of keeping out terrorists who have proclaimed their intention to infiltrate us and destroy us with weapons of mass destruction have been sending permanent residency cards out to the wrong addresses. Even to people who have filed change-of-address forms. And the inauguration of a new computer system to handle the process in 2012 made the problem worse. Joe Davidson of the...

    U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services was supposed to have completed its conversion to a new automated system last year that would streamline and speed up the processing of green cards and other immigration benefits. Not only has the system gone 480 percent over budget and failed to meet its deadlines but it has increased green card errors rather than reducing them, an audit by the Inspector General’s Office has found.

    At least 3 million foreign nationals were granted work permits, work visas, and green cards in 2013, with most being granted to individuals from Mexico, China, and India, according to the most recent data issued by the Congressional Research Service. While the 2014 numbers have not been disclosed, recent statistics provided to Congress reveal that work permits continued to be issued at record numbers, according to congressional sources and statistics provided to the Washington Free Beacon. This includes about 1 million green cards with work authorization, 1 million employment-based nonimmigrant visas for foreign workers, and 1.2 million work-permit authorizations for...

    Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) is defending his participation in drafting the "Gang of Eight" Senate amnesty bill, which offered illegal immigrants a path to American citizenship by allowing them to apply for a green card. In an interview with Sean Hannity last night, Rubio explained that he was "trying to make a difference" by participating in the 2013 process with liberal Democratic Senators like Chuck Schumer to create the "most conservative bill possible" in a Democratic led Senate. "What we underestimated is how much people distrust the federal government," he said, pointing out that Americans demanded border security first before...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Senate Judicial Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, chaired by Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), released this week the text and charts of a report concerning America’s ongoing policy of massive legal immigration. While much political attention has been paid to the issue of illegal aliens entering the country, the overwhelming majority of immigration to the United States is the result of visa policies. Millions of visas are issued every year to temporary workers, foreign students, refugees, those seeking asylum, and permanent immigrants for admission into the United States. The vast majority of these...

    A remarkable transformation is underway in the Commonwealth of Virginia. The birthplace and final resting place of George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson—and once one of the most reliably-red of red states—is being rapidly turned into a progressive stronghold. These changes are not the result of an inside agency, or a natural evolution in political thinking, but rather the result of one of the most impactful yet least-discussed policies of the federal government. Each year the federal government prints millions of visas and distributes these admission tickets to the poorest and least-developed nations in the world. A middle-aged person living...

    This is a gem. Thanks to Conservative Review and investigator/writer Daniel Horowitz for pulling these numbers together in an easy to see graphic form. See the whole story here. Horowitz mentions refugees as part of the flow. (hat tip: Dick): There is one caveat we need to mention and that is that not all of those entering the US from countries such as Iraq or Iran are Muslims, but we do get at least a ball park number from this data. Also, we do not take refugees from all of those countries listed above which reminds us that there are...

The Associated Press reported last week that the new federal contract proposal from the Homeland Security Department would allow the government to buy enough supplies to make as many as 34 million immigrant work permits and residency cards over the next...
