  • Vanity - DACA "Kids", Hispanics ignored by Chuck Schumer....once again.

    01/24/2018 9:06:41 AM PST · by JLAGRAYFOX · 14 replies
    Ah....life is just wonderful for the "Hispanics", DACA "Kids".......First Barack Hussein Obama & Hillary Clinton screw them royally with false undelivered, illegal promises, and, then Democrat, Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer withdraws his "Wall" funding commitment to POTUS, Donald J. Trump and the Republican Caucus. For sure, read my lips, if there is no wall funding coming forward, these DACA folks will be headed back to their country of origin. DACA "Kiddies" your best friend and ally is none other the POTUS, Donald J. Trump. You best come to turns with yourselves, cause Chuck Schumer and your Democrat Party ain't...
  • Trump Immigration Policy Scores Among Hispanics, Blacks

    Breitbart ^ | 01/22/2018 | NEIL MUNRO
    A new poll shows the GOP is more trusted than Democrats to handle the hot-button immigration issue — and large percentages of Hispanic and African-American voters are backing President Donald Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” immigration policy. The respondents were asked” “Who do you trust more to handle the following issue?” The answer for immigration was 40 percent for Democrats, 41 percent for the GOP and a huge 20 percent for “Don’t know” or “No answer.” That is a large percentage of non-answers, and likely hides a block of pro-Trump supporters who fear to respond truthfully. The poll of 1997...
  • Graham to GOP: Support 'Amnesty'; Hispanic Community ‘Should be Our Voters'

    PJ Media ^ | January 19, 2018 | Nicholas Ballasy
    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said the Republican-led Congress should offer a path to citizenship for DREAMers now and pass a bill that deals with border security and “chain migration later” in exchange for granting “amnesty” to all undocumented immigrants. Rather than waiting until Congress can agree on some sort of comprehensive immigration package, conservatives in Congress have argued that any deal granting legal status to “Dreamers,” called so in reference to the DREAM Act, should be tied to additional border security measures, such as funding for the border wall and legislative language that prevents “chain migration,” or family reunification, in...
  • Another Government Boondoggle: $430,000 Study of Latino Food Shopping Habits

    The New American ^ | 17 January 2018 | Raven Clabough
    The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is abusing taxpayer dollars once again, this time by issuing a $430,000 grant for a study on the grocery store purchases of American Latino families. The study is yet another example of unconstitutional government overreach, and it raises the possibility for the government to intervene in the dietary habits of its citizens, despite its strongly negative record in this area.

    The Republican Party is working diligently to support Hispanics who are eager to become civically engaged leaders in their communities. Last month, I led a Republican Leadership Initiative event in Las Vegas to teach local activists how to mobilize their communities around issues that affect them. The training — tailored to a Spanish-speaking audience — was an opportunity to share our conservative message as we work to earn the widespread support of people from all backgrounds, nationwide. To win elections in 2018 and beyond, we must ensure that Americans know that our values of limited government and economic freedom are...

    Rep. Carlos Curbelo (R-FL) was denied membership into the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. Is it a shocker? No. It has all-Democratic members, but former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) was able to become a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Also, Curbelo could have joined the Republican alternative, the Congressional Hispanic Conference. Whatever the reasons, there’s another that we also probably should have known as to why he was rejected: The all-Democratic Congressional Hispanic Caucus says they use their meetings to strategize against Trump (via Business Insider): . . .

    Honestly, I have no problem with our President and government recognizing different cultures, as long as they have contributed to the American mosaic. Remember the sage words of Hector Saint John de Crevecoeur, the French-born American farmer who outlined the new American nationality to the world: “What is this American? This new man? He has become an American by being received in the broad lap of our great Alma Mater. Here individuals of all races are melted into a new race of man, whose labors and posterity will one day cause great changes in the world. Americans are the western...

    President Donald Trump said Thursday he’ll visit Puerto Rico, adding that the island was “absolutely obliterated" by Hurricane Maria. This week, Hurricane Maria slammed into Puerto Rico, knocking out 100 percent of electrical power, destroying infrastructure and causing widespread flooding and mudslides. The Category 4 hurricane came as Puerto Rico was recovering from Hurricane Irma, which struck the U.S. territory earlier in September. “Puerto Rico is in very, very tough shape. Their electrical grid is destroyed. It wasn't in good shape to start off with, but their electrical grid is totally destroyed, and so many other things,” Trump said Thursday,...

    RICHMOND, Va. — Tom Perez arrived early last month at a cramped Democratic campaign field office here, where a large chalkboard on a back wall blared the urgency of his visit: "Countdown to the Vote: 88." That's how many days Perez had to get Democrats riled up for Virginia's state elections. Perez delivered the sort of rousing, preacher-like speech he's known for, getting responses from volunteer phone bankers of "Amen" and "Yes." He spoke of the McCarthy era and how the country beat it back because of its "gyroscope." "Just when you think that gyroscope is spinning out of control,...

    }Wow! This is one of the most powerful speeches you will ever watch. A Hispanic American, who is now a Trump supporter, lays bare his emotions for everyone to see, as he gets choked up explaining to a crowd how he used to be the guy who would “beat up Trump supporters”. In his speech, he exposes the leftist media and how through deceptive editing they are able to make their viewers believe that President Trump and his supporters are “racists”. This brave Hispanic man tells how before he "saw the truth", he used to be "hard-core anti-Trump" and if...

    The National Institutes of Health has chosen four community partners to join its All of Us precision medicine research program, which seeks to gather data from at least one million people in the United States to improve health. The program is part of the Precision Medicine Initiative created by President Barack Obama in 2015 and was formerly known as the PMI Cohort. The partners will receive a combined $1.7 million to raise awareness about the research program among African Americans, Hispanics and Latinos, seniors and the LGBTQ communities. Researchers will use the data collected from the program to learn how...

    George Lopez has taken a shot at President Donald Trump’s immigration policies. The comedian posted a message to his Instagram on Saturday that was specifically aimed at the president’s administration. Lopez made it clear he didn’t support Trump’s handling of immigration, which led to a 38 percent increase in deportation arrests in the president’s first 100 days. In that time, the arrests of undocumented immigrants without criminal histories doubled. “The Trump administration is deporting Latinos to make the streets safer ... you wanna make the streets safer, deport the police!” Lopez’s photo said.....

    In September, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will begin construction on President Trump’s infamous 130-mile wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. At times like these, the symbolism of barriers hits hard. It’s no surprise that on Saturday, attendees at Chicago’s Ruido Fest – a rock en español festival in the city’s Pilsen neighborhood – decided to stage a protest against a Home Depot branded booth that featured a mock wall installation. The activity invited festivalgoers to decorate tiles and glue them onto the wall as artists played sets across the grounds. In addition to the symbolism of the installation, protesters expressed...

    The New York Amsterdam News ^ | July 6, 2017 | Roger Caldwell
    Democrats can never win in America without the Black vote and a progressive platform. Trump and the Republicans are winning with approval numbers below 40 percent, and the Democratic leadership has no strategy to change the trajectory of this administration. The Republicans control the House, the Senate and the White House, and there appears nothing the Democrats can do. The Democrats can filibuster, resist and obstruct the Republicans’ policies, but when it is time for a vote, the Republicans win. In the House they win by 24 votes, and in the Senate they win by two votes. In the special...

    This summer will mark the third anniversary of the death of Eric Garner, a New York man who was killed by police officers outside of a neighborhood convenience store in Staten Island (he was suspected of illegally selling loose cigarettes). Garner’s death is one of many that has raised Americans’ concerns about the increasing number of Black men, women, and children killed by U.S. law enforcement officers. At only 13 percent of the U.S. population, African Americans are killed by police, incarcerated, live in poverty, and have poor health at higher rates than White Americans, who make up the majority...

    One of the little-told stories of the 2016 election was Donald Trump’s 28 percent take of the Hispanic vote, besting Mitt Romney’s 2012 showing. We on Team Trump won’t throw parades for winning less than one-third of the Latino vote nationally, but lessened enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton among Hispanics represents a key reason, perhaps the primary reason, she was ultimately uncompetitive in Florida. Why did Latino support for Trump massively outperform expectations? For one thing, millions of Hispanics rejected the relentless mainstream media narrative that Trump is an anti-Mexican racist. In addition, only U.S. citizens can vote, and according to...

    Learning English is a much bigger hurdle for immigrants than earlier believed, with most Hispanics being functional illiterates, even those who have been in the United States for over a decade. A new analysis of immigrants found that 63 percent of Hispanics have a "below basic" understanding of English, making them illiterate. And it doesn't get better if they stay in the U.S. for 15 years. In a shocking finding showing that they haven't tried to learn -- or even had to -- more, 67 percent, of Hispanics don't have English proficiency even after 15 years in America. The Center...
  • 77% black births to single moms, 49% for Hispanic immigrants

    More than three quarters of African American births are to unmarried women, nearly double the illegitimacy rate of all other births, according to new federal data. The National Center for Health Statistics said that in 2015, 77.3 percent of non-immigrant black births were illegitimate. The national non-immigrant average is 42 percent, and it was 30 percent for whites. The new numbers were in a Center for Immigration Studies analysis on the births to immigrants. That total is 32.7 percent, but to Hispanic immigrants it is 48.9 percent, according to Steven Camarota, the director of research for the Center for Immigration...
