  • Victor Davis Hanson: How did immoral special interests hijack U.S. immigration law

    No one knows just how many tens of thousands of Central American nationals -- most of them desperate, unescorted children and teens -- are streaming across America's southern border. Yet this phenomenon offers us a proverbial teachable moment about the paradoxes and hypocrisies of Latin American immigration to the United States. For all the pop romance in Latin America associated with Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba, few Latinos prefer to immigrate to such communist utopias or to socialist spins-offs like Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador or Peru. Instead, hundreds of thousands of poor people continue to risk danger to enter democratic, free-market America,...

    Border Crisis: What Glenn Beck Did Wrong by John Nolte 10 Jul 2014, 8:15 AM PDT Wednesday morning The Blaze's Glenn Beck announced it was "deadly to my career" for him to provide truckloads of meals and soccer balls as a way to "help care for some of the roughly 60,000 underage refugees who have crossed into America illegally in 2014." Early Thursday morning on "Morning Joe," the left-wing Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski did exactly what I feared the media would do after Beck's announcement: they trashed conservatives who disagreed with Beck as lacking in compassion.

League City City Council passed an resolution that will prohibit the federal government from setting up any undocumented immigrant shelters with in the city limits. The resolution passed 6-2. It's the second resolution of it's kind that was passed Tuesday. Galveston County passed a similar resolution earlier Tuesday in a 4-1 vote. The resolution suggests that immigrants children detained at the border may have diseases, and therefore the public needs to be protected. There is also a big push under this resolution to...

"Beyond that, we'll await further discussions with our members before we make a final decision." With Congress set...

    Liberal Democrats and their media allies are waging a War on America and it is well past time that we recognize this fact. In the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks a commission examined our relationship to the Islamists who had slaughtered our people and concluded that Islam has been at war with us for quite a while but that we have failed to recognize it. Recent polls on the subject confirm years of previous polling showing that liberals are not patriotic, they don’t love America and they wish they could change our country into something else-probably France.

He further stated that passage of his immigration reform bill would solve the border crisis for 20 years.

But is it possible to sustain a practice whereby social services are freely provided to anyone who can sneak across the border? Does such a practice ever reach a tipping point where it becomes self-defeating and detrimental to everyone in the nation? What does a community look like when there are not enough federal, state or local funds to meet the basic needs of the poor? Should limits ever be set on who gets to come across the border to America? Compare it to...

The 26-year-old veteran of two tours in Afghanistan was finally able to tell his story to a judge, after his case had been delayed by both Mexico's unpredictable legal system and his own trouble settling on a lawyer. It was not immediately clear what Tahmooressi said at the evidentiary hearing, which was closed to the public.

Most of the children have been reunited with family members already in the United States. Some have been sent back to their home countries.

It was Obama's most substantive response to date as he struggles to gain control of a humanitarian crisis along the Texas border with Mexico. The money would both pay to care for the children and accelerate a return to their home countries. The funding move will test Obama's ability to negotiate effectively with Republican lawmakers who have blocked much...

    As government regulators crack down on the financing of terrorists and drug traffickers, many big banks are abandoning the business of transferring money from the United States to other countries, moves that are expected to reverse years of declines in the cost of immigrants sending money home to their families. While Mexico may be most affected — nearly half of the $51.1 billion in remittances sent from the United States in 2012 ended up in that country — the banks’ broad retreat over the last year is affecting other countries in Latin America and parts of Africa as well. The...

    The speech was given by Governor Lamm at the 2004 Immigration-Overpopulation Conference in Washington, D.C. He titled it “A Plan to Destroy America.” AMERICAN SUICIDE Wherever you stand, please take the time to read this; it ought to scare the pants off you! We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado (Democrat). In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Recently there was an immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America’s finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Davis Hansen talked about his latest book, “Mexifornia,”...

    Representative Jim Bridenstine's (R-Okla) attempt to gain some first-hand knowledge on the 1200 illegal immigrant minors housed in his Congressional District was blocked by officials of the Department of Health and Human Services. "It's for the Congressman's own good," Health and Human Services Secretary Silva Burwell insisted. "Many of these youngsters are carrying infectious diseases and parasites. We cannot allow unnecessary contact with unauthorized persons." Bridenstine was advised to come back after July 21. "By that time all of the children will have been placed with other families or in shelters more suitable for the longer term," Burwell said. "It...
  • Fearing Lawsuits, Sheriffs Balk at U.S. Request to Hold Noncitizens for Extra Time

    New York Times ^ | July 5, 2014 | By JENNIFER MEDINA
    Sheriffs around the nation are openly rejecting the Obama administration policy of holding noncitizens who are accused or convicted of crimes for extra time, which for years has enabled the federal government to begin deportation proceedings for thousands of immigrants. The phenomenon started this spring, after a federal judge in Oregon ruled that a sheriff there had violated one immigrant woman’s civil rights by holding her in the county jail solely at the request of federal agents. “When a judge says something is in violation of the Fourth Amendment, I am not going to just keep doing it,” said Sheriff...

    Border Security and the Immigration ColanderPosted By Michael Cutler On July 7, 2014 @ 12:56 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 12 Comments When you consider how many ways an alien may enter the United States it is absurd to focus all attention on just the Southwest Border of the United States that involves just four of America’s 50 states.In point of fact, it has been estimated that 40% of the illegal aliens who are present in the United States did not run our border and evade the inspections process that is supposed to prevent the entry of aliens whose presence...

    He could become the Willie Horton of the immigration crisis. Milton Mateo Garcia, 28, was caught one year ago entering the U.S. illegally across the Mexican border and was deported back to his native Honduras. But Mr. Garcia soon re-entered the U.S. illegally — federal authorities either don’t know how, or they won’t say. He settled with relatives in Philadelphia, where Mayor Michael Nutter had signed an executive order in April declaring it a “sanctuary city” for illegal immigrants. Living and working in sanctuary, Mr. Garcia last month, according to police, approached a 26-year-old Philadelphia doctor who was walking to...

    Obama is using the Federal government to transport children all over this country. Our elected officials are being denied any access to the children. It looks like they are dropping the illegal adults off all over the country to be homeless on our streets, but what about the children? We don't know if the children (and adults) have communicable diseases. We don't know who the government is handing the children off to. Are the children going to family members or child traffickers. Who decides who are family members, since most of the families are illegals we don't have records on...

    Senator Dick Durbin (D-Ill) suggests that President Obama "borrow some of the unused legislative power Congress is sitting on to solve the immigration problem." "I know some of my Republican friends across the aisle will insist that the power to enact laws is exclusively reserved to Congress under our Constitution," Durbin acknowledged. "However, an even older common law principle is that a right left dormant for an extended period lapses and may be taken up by a more energetic party. The need for immigration reform has been known for a long time, yet Congress has neglected to pass legislation. So...
