    Wednesday on NewMax TV’s “Prime,” while discussing Tuesday’s Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruling, which stopped the Obama administration’s amnesty, political commentator Pat Buchanan said the Republican field of candidates are going to have to make their views on immigration known, suggesting they should start with calling for the government to “deport individuals.” Buchanan said, “Barack Obama far exceeded his authority with his executive amnesty He had been saying again and again and again, I don’t have the authority to do that. He’d been telling his supporters, I can’t do that by executive order, and then he contradicted himself and...

Marco Rubio of Florida and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush stand out in the 2016 GOP field because of their ability to make inroads with Latinos. Mr. Axelrod was asked on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” if he were advising former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential frontrunner, which Republican candidates or potential candidates scare him the most. “I would say Rubio...

    A federal appeals court said Wednesday it has set a date to hear an expedited appeal of a lower court order that put President Obama’s deportation relief programs on hold. The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear oral arguments on July 10 in New Orleans in the Obama administration’s attempt to lift a preliminary injunction from U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen of Texas, which blocked several key executive actions from taking effect. The hearing will present a major test for the administration, which is seeking to end the legal limbo surrounding its immigration programs. A three-judge panel from...

If you don’t want to be killed by ISIS, don’t go to Syria. If you don’t want to be killed by a Mexican, there’s nothing I can tell you,” Coulter said in an interview Tuesday with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos.

    Hope soared for almost 5 million undocumented immigrants when President Obama announced last year that he would unilaterally spare them deportation and bestow work authorizations. It was too good to be true. Federal courts have blocked Obama from making good on his decree, with all signs suggesting that his plan will remain legally dead for the remainder of his presidency. Worse, by high-handedly claiming authority, he infuriated congressional Republicans and doomed any hope of even piecemeal immigration reform.

    The Department of Justice on Wednesday said it will not make an emergency request to the Supreme Court to lift an order blocking President Obama's executive action on immigration. Instead, the administration will focus on the appeal of the injunction itself at the 5th Circuit, which is expected to proceed in July. "The Department has determined that it will not seek a stay from the Supreme Court," Justice Department spokesman Patrick Rodenbush said. Rodenbush said the "best way" to win the case is "to focus on the ongoing appeal on the merits of the preliminary injunction itself. That appeal has...

The letter, signed by Bush, identifies “a program of earned legalization that offers an opportunity for many illegal immigrants to earn the right to remain...

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of Texas, which had sued to stop the amnesty, on all key points, finding that Mr. Obama’s amnesty likely broke the law governing how big policies are to be written. “The public interest favors maintenance of the injunction,” the judges wrote in the majority opinion. Mr. Obama had acted in November to try to grant tentative...

    The Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to hear an important case about whether states must count only those who are eligible to vote, rather than the total population, when drawing electoral districts for their legislatures. The case from Texas could be significant for states with large immigrant populations, including Latinos who are children or not citizens. The plaintiffs claim that redrawing electoral districts based on the population of citizens and non-citizens alike violates the constitutional requirement of one person, one vote. The challengers claim that taking account of total population can lead to vast differences in the number of voters in...

In fact, the agency, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), has for years violated a measure known as the Improper Payments Elimination and Recovery Act (IPERA) that requires agencies to conduct annual risk assessments to identify programs that make “significant improper payments” of $10 million or more. Not only has the USDA violated IPERA in the last four years, it also refuses...

    The monstrous agency created after 9/11 to protect the United States from more terrorist attacks instead compromises national security by failing to track how many unauthorized foreigners—some felons in their native country—it refuses to prosecute under President Obama’s broad amnesty initiative. One of the president’s many tools to reward illegal immigrants with amnesty is a measure known as prosecutorial discretion, which allows federal agencies to decide to what degree they enforce certain laws against particular individuals. For years the system has spared a myriad of illegal aliens from removal by authorizing—and encouraging—low-level field officers to block deportations by using an...

    The average citizen watching the Republicans work out an internal conflict over whether non-citizens should be provided with legal status if they serve in the U.S. military must be pretty confused by now. In April, over a dozen House Republicans introduced a bill that would allow the children of illegal immigrants brought into the U.S. by their parents to obtain legal residency by serving in uniform. A similar measure was introduced in the last Congress and was supposed to be included in an annual defense appropriations measure, but House GOP leadership blocked the move.

    As if it weren’t infuriating enough that American taxpayers are being forced to house, feed, medically treat and educate the never-ending influx of illegal immigrant minors, the Obama administration is also doling out millions of dollars to provide them with free legal representation. Unlike the criminal justice system, in immigration court the government doesn’t offer free lawyers to those who can’t afford them. This means that illegal aliens who don’t have the money to pay for one must represent themselves in legal proceedings or rely on volunteer attorneys or paralegals provided by immigrant rights groups. This leaves many illegal aliens...

Last week, the Department of Justice Board of Immigration Appeals upheld a decision to deport Margarita Del Pilar Fitzpatrick for voting in a federal election. Fitzpatrick registered to vote in Illinois using the federal “Motor Voter” registration form.

    Does Obama have it out for his countrymen, or does he simply not give a damn about his fellow Americans? This inescapable question occurs in light of his release of 66,565 convicted illegal-alien criminals over the past two years. Rather than deport these often-violent lawbreakers to their homelands, Obama sets them loose on U.S. streets. According to data that Immigration and Customs Enforcement delivered to the House Judiciary Committee last month, ICE released 30,558 illegal-alien criminals from federal custody into the general population in fiscal year 2014. To use more-sensitive language, these undocumented crime workers collectively were responsible for 79,059...

Hedren flew in her personal manicurist to teach a group of 20 refugees the art of manicures. Those 20 women - mainly the wives of high-ranking military officers and at least one woman who worked in military intelligence - went on to transform the industry, which is now worth about $8bn (£5.2bn) and is dominated by Vietnamese Americans. "We were trying to find vocations for them," says Hedren, who is perhaps best known for starring in...

    Likely Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush said the United States needs an immigration policy that shows respect for some illegal immigrants currently in the country in an upcoming interview on “The Kelly File.” “There’s got to be a point where we fix this system so that legal immigration is easier than illegal immigration, and show some respect for people, a kid that might have been here 10 years, that might have been valedictorian of their high school, to say ‘No, no, no, you’re not allowed to go to college?'” Bush said. “I just think there’s a point past which we’re...

    The Obama administration is injecting its open border agenda to the federal landmark that once served as the gateway for legal immigration with a new gallery blasting the militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border and the deportation of “unauthorized immigrants.” Located in the New York Harbor and situated near the iconic Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and its structures are federally-owned landmarks operated by the National Park Service (NPS), which is part of the U.S. Department of the Interior. From 1892 to 1954 the island received and processed around 12 million immigrants, mostly Europeans fleeing war, religious persecution and famine. Among...

    (CNSNews.com) - President Barack Obama said at a fundraiser in Portland, Ore., yesterday that young foreign nationals who are in the United States illegally but on whose behalf he has decided not to enforce the immigration law are “Americans just like our kids, except they don’t have the right documents.” “We still got to make sure we get comprehensive immigration reform passed in this country,” Obama said . “ I couldn’t be prouder of the work that we’ve done through executive actions to make sure that our young DREAMers--young people who were brought here as children and are Americans...

    President Obama’s lawyers admitted to a federal judge late Thursday that they had broken the court’s injunction halting the administration’s new deportation amnesty, issuing thousands of work permits even after Judge Andrew S. Hanen had ordered the program stopped. The stunning admission, filed just before midnight in Texas, where the case is being heard, is the latest misstep for the administration’s lawyers, who are facing possible sanctions by Judge Hanen for their continued problems in arguing the case. The Justice Department lawyers said Homeland Security, which is the defendant in the case, told them Wednesday that an immigration agency had...

    <p>Via Jeff Dunetz, a time capsule from 2003 rescued from the memory hole by GOP oppo researchers. We already knew she said this, but knowing it and having it available as a soundbite for attack ads are two different things. It’ll come in handy next summer when she’s busy trying to convince Latinos that our inevitably pro-amnesty Republican nominee, who may well himself be Latino or have children who are Latino and who’ll probably have a Latino running mate, hates illegals because many are Latino.</p>

    In an effort to contrast her position on immigration reform with that of Jeb Bush and other Republican presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton will stress that she supports the so-called “path to citizenship” for 11 million illegal immigrants during a campaign trip to Nevada, The Wall Street Journal reports: “She will say that the standard for a true solution is nothing less than a full and equal path to citizenship,” said a Clinton aide, previewing her remarks. “She will say that we cannot settle for proposals that provide hardworking people with merely a ’second-class’ status.” By contrast, Jeb Bush, whom some...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has promised to back a path to "full and equal citizenship" for illegal immigrants, and has accused Republicans of treating illegals as "second class." "This is where I differ with everybody on the Republican side. Make no mistake, not a single Republican ... is clearly and consistently supporting a path to citizenship. Not one," Clinton said during a campaign stop in Nevada on Tuesday, according to The Associated Press. "When they talk about legal status, that is code for second-class status." Clinton further said that she backs President Barack Obama's executive actions that allow some...

    Las Vegas, Nevada (CNN)In what will be her most comprehensive comments on immigration reform as a presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton will use a roundtable on Tuesday in Nevada to argue that the only "true solution" for reform is "nothing less than a full and equal path to citizenship." Clinton will cast immigration reform as a family issue, an aide said Tuesday, and will focus on the need to find a legislative fix, strengthen the United States border and bring "millions of hard-working people out of the shadows and into the formal economy so they can pay taxes and contribute to...

    During a campaign visit to Nevada today, Hillary Rodham Clinton will call for a “full and equal path to citizenship” for immigrants living in the country illegally, drawing a clear distinction from Republican candidates on the issue, a campaign official said. [Snip] Like Obama, the candidate will characterize immigration reform as an economic issue, an effort that would bring millions of people out of the black market economy, enabling them to pay taxes.

    Am I hearing Obama correctly? While speaking at My Brother's Keeper, Obama complained about lack of jobs for blacks. He then called for more investment in black communities to help solve this problem. Strangely absent from his remarks was the impact illegal immigration has had on jobs available to the LEGAL citizens of this country, INCLUDING blacks. Did Obama forget that it is largely because of HIS overturning of our immigration laws that blacks can't find jobs??? Why won't the black community speak out against Obama's immigration policies? Do they fear insulting their soul brother in the White House?
