    WASHINGTON — Congress is sending President Obama a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security through the end of the budget year, without overturning the president’s immigration policies. The House on Tuesday voted 257-167 for the measure that Obama is expected to sign. Without action, funding for the department would have expired Friday at midnight.

    LUIS GUTIERREZ TO TX GOV: ‘WE ARE COMING’ FOR EXEC AMNESTY Associated Press On the most recent leg of his national executive amnesty tour, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) suggested that Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) should start “looking at his own family” before opposing President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty. Abbott’s wife, who is of Hispanic descent, is the state’s first Latina First Lady. “Let me just suggest to the governor of the state we are coming, we are signing people up for the executive action. Millions of families, and he should turn around looking at his own family and ask...

    "17 more states planning Ariz. 'illegal' crackdown But ICE chief says feds might not 'process' illegals arrested by state In what is developing into a standoff between states and the federal government that could be bigger than gun control or even health care, 17 states have launched versions of Arizona's immigration law, even as federal officials say they may not bother to process illegal aliens caught by the states. William Gheen, president of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC, which has been trying to get officials to address the open southern border for years, warned the consequences could be dire.

    Washington Post ^ | April 4, 2009 | Craig Shirley and Donald Devine
    From William F. Buckley Jr. to Barry Goldwater to Ronald Reagan, the creators of the modern conservative movement always taught that excessive concentration of power in government leads inevitably to corruption and the diminution of personal freedoms. But while Rove credits these leaders for shaping his early political views -- ... he did not pursue their values while in the White House. To the contrary, as the chief political architect of the Bush presidency, Rove was instrumental in directing an administration most notable for its enormous expansion of national government. [Snip] The truly unique aspects of Bush and Rove's compassionate...

    Washington, D.C. – U.S. Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA) made the following statement today regarding President Bush’s announcement yesterday to grant pardons and commutations to 29 individuals, while refusing to pardon Border Patrol agents Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos. “The President announced yesterday that 29 individuals have been granted pardons and commutations for a variety of crimes, from dealing drugs to the theft of government property,” said Congressman Hunter. “Two names that were conspicuously missing from the President’s list were Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. “By refusing to pardon agents Ramos and Compean, the President has missed yet...

    The city of Manassas, VA could become the next Virginia locality to enact measures targeting illegal aliens. Manassas City Council member Marc T. Aveni, a Republican, yesterday said he wants to introduce a resolution similar to one passed by the Prince William Board of County Supervisors in July, which would deny public services to illegal aliens and toughen local immigration enforcement. "I need to get the rest of the council on board, but I think it"s absolutely something we would want to do," Mr. Aveni said, citing inactivity at the federal and state levels as one of the main...

Alternative: Maybe it's about not being able to take the worst ideas from the left (instant legalization of illegals) and the right (second class guest workers), put them together, call it centrism, bask in fawning MSM coverage and ram it down the throat of voters who don't want it!

    PHOENIX — A state lawmaker and others active in border issues plan to ask voters to punish employers who knowingly hire undocumented workers and force police to question people they stop about whether they're here legally. Although there is already an employer-sanctions bill pending in the Legislature, with an uncertain legislative future and potential for a veto, Rep. Russell Pearce, R-Mesa, and a group of like minds have decided to take their case directly to the people. The first initiative would yank any state licenses of companies found guilty even once of filing a false statement that they do not...

Jail deputies booked a total of 6,160 people through the Intake Release Center during that time.

    Two civil rights groups filed a lawsuit Tuesday challenging a suburb's new law that outlaws renting to illegal immigrants, alleging the ordinance violates federal law and forces landlords to act as immigration officers. The American Civil Liberties Union and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund filed the suit on behalf of Farmers Branch residents and landlords. The law, along with a measure that made English the official language of the city, was passed in November and is scheduled to go into effect Jan. 12. The lawsuit claims the ordinance is so poorly drafted that it excludes even legal...

    Mexicans living in the Bay Area are split roughly along class lines in their choice for Mexico's next president, conversations with community leaders and everyday people reveal. Business owners, their employees and people who can readily afford to travel tended to support Felipe Calderon, the apparent winner of last week's election, while his unconceding rival Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador found favor with the more precariously employed and their advocates.In San Pablo, arguably Contra Costa County's most Latino city, workers and customers at Carmelita's Beauty Salon on Tuesday expressed hope that Calderon will prevail."It will be good for the Mexicans who...

    Migration Policy Institute ^ | October 2003 | Elizabeth Grieco
    The size of the undocumented immigrant population in the United States is probably about 9 million people. A report released by the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service in January 2003 estimated the size of the undocumented immigrant population at 7.0 million in 2000. A separate analysis by Jeff Passel of the Urban Institute estimated there were 8.5 million undocumented immigrants in 2000. Passel and others believe that net illegal immigration from Mexico alone has been growing at a rate of 500,000 people annually, which places current estimates at a minimum of 9.0 million unauthorized immigrants.In the 1990s, the undocumented immigrant...

    LITTLE ROCK - Wal-Mart Stores Inc. acknowledged Friday in a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it is discussing a possible civil settlement with federal prosecutors that would resolve allegations that it used illegal workers to clean its stores. A federal grand jury has been meeting in Pennsylvania since December of 2003 to investigate charges that the world's largest retailer, based at Springdale, knew that some of the janitorial companies it used to clean its floors employed illegal immigrants. Federal agents arrested about 250 alleged illegal workers last October during a sweep of Wal-Mart stores in 21 states....

    It's hard to believe, but an actual report on the costs of undocumented immigration has finally been released. For those who have railed against previous columns about undocumented immigrants and cited their drain on taxpayers, your ammunition has arrived via a study conducted by the Center for Immigration Studies. Released last month, "The High Cost of Cheap Labor: Illegal Immigration and the Federal Budget" shows that undocumented immigrants used $26.3 billion in government services in 2002 but paid only $16 billion in taxes. That, concludes the study, resulted in a $10 billion cost to taxpayers. This study is about as...
