  • What the President Didn’t Tell You About His Amnesty Plan: A Speech Jonathan Gruber Would Love

    Newt Gingrich, writing at CNN, contrasts the words that President Obama used to describe his deferred deportation plan with what his administration is actually proposing. The President also said in his speech that his actions would offer relief only to people who met certain criteria he described, including having child dependents in the United States. But the actual policy memo makes clear that “DHS will direct all of its enforcement resources at pursuing” people who are “national security threats, serious criminals, and recent border crossers.”In other words, there will be one group, estimated at 4 million or so, who...

    mmigration has been a hot topic recently, as President Obama used executive actions to protect approximately 4 million immigrants from deportation. Friday, Hillary Clinton came out and backed the President on this controversial issue. The former Secretary of State and potential 2016 Presidential candidate says Obama's actions are in line with previous decisions made by both Democrats and Republicans, and that this is about protecting the people who deserve to be here. "It's really the lives of people who are in many instances long time residents and workers who have not only raised children, but made contributions. And in many,...

    Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said Sunday that President Obama refuses to accept that only Congress has the authority to establish federal immigration laws and that members should block the president’s nominees and some funding until he rescinds his executive action on the issue. “This is a stunning and sad display by the president,” Cruz, a Republican, told “Fox News Sunday.” “We need to impose real consequence.” Cruz suggested, as he has since Obama announced the executive action Thursday, that Congress should take action next year when Republicans, who already control the House, will also have the majority in the Senate.

    Republicans in Congress are unified in their desire to fight President Obama's action to protect more than 4 million immigrants from deportation and ease rules for up to 1 million more. They just can't agree on how to do it. Should they shut down the government? File a lawsuit? Or is there a more measured approach that could showcase Republican leadership, such as passing a legislative alternative?

And in the case of President Eisenhower, his executive action was to deport 80,000 illegal immigrants.

    SAN DIEGO — PRESIDENT OBAMA’S executive order eliminating the threat of deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants is good policy. It is the right thing to do. But it is a dangerous move for the Democratic Party. Yes, immigration is an important issue for most Latinos and Asian-Americans. And yes, 63 percent of Latinos and 66 percent of Asian- Americans voted for Democratic candidates for Congress in the midterms. The executive order could solidify and expand that support for years to come. But Latinos and Asian-Americans made up only 11 percent of the electorate. Even if immigration were the only...

But the speech was notable for some of the things Obama didn’t mention. For instance, he lied about what his non-amnesty amnesty consisted of: “All we’re saying is we’re not going to deport you.” As polling has suggested, this is less likely to provoke opposition than the truth: “All we’re saying is we’re not...

He is going to give you a work authorization...

    SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Idaho was among seven states where the number of unauthorized immigrants increased between 2009 and 2012, according to a report released Tuesday by the Pew Research Center. The report also found the number of unauthorized immigrants decreased in 14 states, including Oregon, in that time period. The number stayed relatively stable in the remaining states, including Washington. Nationally, the number of unauthorized immigrants remained stable at 11.2 million between 2009 and 2012, the report found. The number of such immigrants peaked in 2007 at 12.2 million, the report said. But changes occurred within states. Idaho, for...
  • Barack Obama’s Amnesty won’t be legal, but it will likely be permanent…

    Sometime over the course of the next week Barack Obama is likely going grant amnesty to millions of people who are in the United States illegally. He’s doing this very much against the will of an overwhelming majority of American people. Not only do polls show that Americans are 3 to 1 against his giving amnesty to illegals, but his party, which very much supports his position, just got shellacked in voting booths across the country, at every level. Nonetheless, Barack Obama plans to do it anyway, because he feels he’s right… and because he can. Technically he can’t really...
  • White House weighs timing of announcement on immigration

    The White House has been debating the timing of an announcement on the president's executive action on immigration reform, press secretary Josh Earnest acknowledged Tuesday. Earnest said the president likely would not allow Capitol Hill considerations to weigh heavily on the timing of his announcement because Republicans have signaled a willingness to pre-emptively defund executive action. "This is something that has been discussed at the White House," Earnest said. Earnest acknowledged that some think "Republicans are less likely to attach some kind of rider that would defund any of the president’s actions” if the White House waits until after Congress...

    The Hill ^ | November 18, 2014 | Alexander Bolton with Justin Sink
    President Obama has a tough decision to make on the timing of an executive order to freeze deportations of illegal immigrants. Senate Democrats want him to wait to give them time to pass an omnibus spending bill and other legislative priorities in the lame-duck session that is just now ramping up. But delaying the action, even for a few weeks, could make Obama look weak and inflame immigration advocates who are already furious with him for holding back until after the midterm elections. “You have growing anxiety amongst the immigrant community that’s losing faith that the president is going to...
  • Immigrant Amnesty Has a Conservative History

    Here’s a pop quiz. Which president once said, "Illegal immigrants in considerable numbers have become productive members of our society and are a basic part of our work force”? Was it a liberal like Bill Clinton when he pushed for amnesty in 2000? Or, what about Barack Obama foreshadowing his forthcoming executive actions? Actually, it was Ronald Reagan. As hard as it is to believe only three decades later, such pro-immigrant policy used to be a cornerstone of conservative politics. Many immigrants, after all, epitomize the American dream, traveling far from a foreign country with little other than the hope...
  • 2 GOP PRESIDENTS ACTED UNILATERALLY ON IMMIGRATION

    Two presidents have acted unilaterally on immigration - and both were Republican. Ronald Reagan and his successor George H.W. Bush extended amnesty to family members who were not covered by the last major overhaul of immigration law in 1986. Neither faced the political uproar widely anticipated if and when President Barack Obama uses his executive authority to protect millions of immigrants from deportation. Reagan's and Bush's actions were conducted in the wake of a sweeping, bipartisan immigration overhaul and at a time when "amnesty" was not a dirty word. Obama is acting as the country - and Washington - are...

    Little noticed after the midterm vote, which saw the GOP take control of the Senate and increase their majority in the House, was a referendum in sky blue Oregon to repeal the law that granted illegal immigrants the right to obtain a driver’s license.Even though the Democrats increased their majority in the state legislature and a Democratic governor was reelected, the measure for repeal passed by a 2-1 margin.This is a stark warning to President Obama and the Democrats that if he acts alone to amnesty 5 million illegals, his march to irrelevancy will be complete, and the party...

    Republicans decry ‘border sabotage’ ahead of expected illegal immigration executive actionThe Obama administration quietly announced a program late last week to create a legal channel for thousands of Central American children to come to the U.S., a move designed to prevent a repeat of this summer’s illegal immigrant surge but which Republicans said amounted to “border sabotage.” Coupled with President Obama’s expected action in the next few weeks granting tentative legal status to illegal immigrants already in the U.S., the policy could open the door to illegal immigrants from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala petitioning to have their children still...
