  • Americans agree with Trump: The illegal immigrants must go

    11/25/2015 4:43:37 PM PST · by RoosterRedux · 48 replies ^ | Todd Starnes
    Most Americans agree with Donald Trump -- the illegal aliens have to go. Head 'em up, move 'em out. A new Fox News poll shows 52 percent of the nation favors deporting the millions of illegals back to their home countries. Republicans and Democrats support Mr. Trump’s plan. But the numbers among Republicans are astronomical. Seventy percent agree with Mr. Trump -- a super-majority. So why does the Republican establishment continue to support pro-amnesty candidates? Jeb Bush accused Mr. Trump of preying on people's deep-seated fears. “This whole idea of preying on people’s deep-seated fears of what the future looks...
  • Illegal immigrant children, non-Mexicans surge across border at record rate

    The Southwest border has broken open in recent weeks, with non-Mexicans — and illegal immigrant children in particular — crossing at a record rate in October, according to Border Patrol statistics that suggest the administration’s victory lap earlier this year was premature.Nearly 5,000 unaccompanied children were caught in October, and nearly 3,000 more had been caught in the first half of November — a record pace for those months — and it signals just how closely smuggling cartels and would-be illegal immigrants themselves are paying attention to lax enforcement in the U.S.Worse yet, the increases are borderwide, with every one...

    Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)97% drew his sharpest distinction yet with donor-class favorite Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL)80% last Friday by releasing an in-depth, pro-American immigration plan. The new plan helps Cruz counter what he says is Rubio’s “blazingly, on-its-face false” argument that both Senators share similar positions on immigration. Last week, Cruz attacked Rubio for joining Chuck Schumer and Barack Obama in fighting “tooth and nail to try to jam… amnesty down the throats of the American people.” Following the criticism, Rubio told reporters that Cruz “proposed legalizing people that were here illegally. He proposed giving them work permits....

    During a speech about immigrationin Chicago last November, President Obama was interrupted by hecklers demanding that he stop deporting illegal aliens."You're absolutely right that there have been significant numbers of deportations,"Obama replied. "But what you're not paying attention to is the fact that I just took action to change the law."That went over well with the audience, which applauded as Obama explained that he had bypassed Congress and directed federal agencies to grant legal status to more than four million illegal immigrants living in the United States. It didn't go over nearly so well with Texas and 25 other states,...

    As the Republican presidential primary heats up, illegal immigration is again taking center stage. While this is nothing new (as we know President Reagan attempted to address it in the ’80s, John McCain made it a priority in ’08, and on), the discussion has taken an interesting turn this election cycle. At issue, of course, are Obama’s executive amnesty, the recent influx of illegal immigrants (including huge numbers of children), the vast number of illegals currently living and working in the U.S., border security (such as it is), and a host of related issues including the burden of illegal immigration...

    Two of the suicide bombers who caused carnage in the Paris massacre are thought to have sneaked into France by posing as refugees from Syria. The disclosure, which came amid claims of French intelligence failures, inevitably raised new security concerns about Europe’s borders. Police said the two men, who arrived in Greece last month, were among seven attackers, one as young as 15. One of the attackers was last night named by French media as Mostefai Ismaël Omar, 29, from Courcouronnes, in Essonne.

    This is really interesting. If you look at the deportation stats when Bill Clinton was in office, it really is true that he deported well over 10 million people. If you do not believe the stats then you can go to the link provided to the DHS where it is all broken down there. And it really does look like Obama will deport 3 million by the time he leaves.

    In broader terms, Senators Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), both now competing for the Republican presidential nomination, seemed solidly defined on opposite ends of the political battle over immigration. Cruz was seen as the hardliner, Rubio the appeaser tied to the now infamous 2013 Gang of Eight legislation. With the two Senators headed for a one-on-one battle for the nomination in the view of many pundits, Rubio has gone on the attack, attempting to undermine Cruz’s immigration hardliner reputation. Rubio’s team released the video (below and in the Tweet below), claiming it shows Cruz supported the...

They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists." In 2012, Romney won 27 percent of the Hispanic-American vote.

    ... Although Trump glibly describes "Operation Wetback" as moving undocumented immigrants "waaay south," this program was at best inhumane and at worst horrific. Back then, the government rounded up suspected undocumented immigrants and sent them deep into the Mexican interior, where they were abandoned with next to nothing. The transports across the border were reportedly "indescribable scenes of human misery and tragedy." In one instance, 88 deportees died from heat stroke in the desert. Other deportees were sent to the Mexican Gulf Coast by ship, in vessels described by historians as an "eighteenth century slave ship" or "penal hell ship."...

    New Jersey governor Chris Christie came out swinging against his rival for the GOP presidential nomination Marco Rubio Tuesday. In a Tuesday interview with radio host Laura Ingraham, Christie responded to Rubios claim that the Obama administration's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program could not be rolled back 'immediately.' The Florida senator told Univision host Jorge Ramos in April the DACA program, which exempts children who entered the country illegally from being deported, should 'end at some point' in the future. 'It cannot be the permanent policy of the United States but I’m not calling for it to be revoked...

    To hear political pundits tell it, Donald Trump has little chance to attract enough Hispanic voters to win the presidency in 2016 because of his plans to build a border wall and deport all illegal immigrants in America. Some pollsters and activists who have whipped up past Hispanic support for Republicans, however, see it differently. ....."I don't care if he likes me or not as a Hispanic or Latino, as long he creates the jobs he promised," said Carlo Maffatt, a Mexican immigrant who lives in Las Vegas and who did political liaison work in the Hispanic community for Republicans...

    The Hungarian border fence has been a remarkable success, according to new figures made public by Viktor Orban’s homeland security chief this week. The new border fences, which closed off Hungary from Serbia in September and continued around the border, finally cutting the country off from unwanted incursions from Croatia earlier this month have been so successful the number of illegal migrants has dropped off the charts. While last month up to 10,000 migrants a day illegally crossed into Hungary, now border controls have been fully implemented, that number has fallen to dozens per day. Dr. Gyorgy Bakondi, chief adviser...

    Two disturbing cases highlight the serious problems with the nation’s immigration laws under the Obama administration; In one, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) accused a local police department of racial profiling for arresting two previously deported illegal immigrants and turning them over to federal authorities for removal. In the other, the Department of Justice (DOJ) charged a public school district with discrimination for verifying the immigration status of its employees. The first case comes out of New Llano, a Louisiana town of about 2,500 near the Texas border. In the course of doing their job, a pair of police...

    MATT LAUER, "TODAY" SHOW: I went back and read from your book, The Art of The Deal. You wrote this: 'I play to people's fantasies. I call it truthful hyperbole. It's an innocent form of exaggeration and a very effective form of promotion.' Would it be fair to say that that describes your campaign to date?

    Marco Rubio (R-Florida) listens to a question during a campaign town hall meeting in Derry, New Hampshire Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Florida) is slightly turning up the heat on presidential rival Donald Trump over the Republican front-runner's controversial illegal-immigration statements. In an interview that aired Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union," Rubio said that the way Trump speaks about immigration is "absurd," and questioned whether the real-estate mogul actually believes his own rhetoric. "His rhetoric is a little louder, but if you think about his position on immigration six months ago, his position on immigration six months ago is nothing...

    David Campos, a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, appeared on MSNBC to talk about the sanctuary city status of San Francisco and violent recidivist illegal immigrants like Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, the man accused of murdering 32-year-old Kathryn Steinle in the city in July. Campos was appointed to his position by former San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom. Newsom is now the Lt. Governor of California. Campos seemingly defended Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez by laying some of the blame at the feet of federal law enforcement for allowing the gun to get into his hands.

    The Obama administration is ordering the nations public schools to support illegal immigrant students, promote the presidents amnesty and embrace and value the diversity and cultural backgrounds of the foreigners receiving a free, American taxpayer-funded education. In a 63-page Guide for Success issued this month, the U.S. Department of Education directs teachers in the nations publicly funded schools to understand the cultural and educational backgrounds of their students and to model multicultural sensitivity. Teachers should also engage in self-reflection to address personal biases and increase multicultural competence, according to the new mandate that also orders the incorporation of diversity and...
