    numbersusa.com ^ | Updated: 05/26/15 | Staff
    WHAT DO THESE GRADES MEASURE? For the most part, candidates are being measured by the recommendations and principles of the bi-partisan U.S. Commission on Immigration Reform which favored an immigration system that protects the interests of American wage-earners (both U.S.-born and foreign-born). Commission members were chosen by leaders of each party in the Senate and House, with Chairwoman Barbara Jordan appointed by Pres. Bill Clinton. UPDATED WEEKLY: Every week, we add statements by candidates that modify or add texture to a candidate's stances. Then, each category rating and grade is re-calculated weekly. WHAT ARE WE MISSING?

    WASHINGTON, D.C, May 28, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Homosexual activists are demanding that any illegal immigrant who claims to be gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or “queer” (LGBTQ) be set free and allowed to roam the United States, essentially making LGBT illegals a class above the law.Dozens of members of United We Dream gathered outside the headquarters of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on Wednesday to protest what they consider to be mistreatment that homosexual illegal aliens experience while in U.S. custody.They urged ICE, which is part of the Department of Homeland Security, to stop detaining all illegal aliens who...

    When Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry talks about immigration on the campaign trail, he hammers President Obama's policies and touts his own experience standing up to the president during last summer's border crisis. But Perry will also need to demonstrate to Republican primary voters that his nuanced approach to immigration can succeed at the federal level. Perry's path to the nomination may feature more roadblocks than there are Border Patrol checkpoints in South Texas. Perry did slow the influx of Central Americans into the Rio Grande Valley during last summer's border crisis, but at great cost to his state. A...

    Of course they do. They know which party will benefit, handsomely, if that’s permitted.Why, if it weren’t for non-citizens voting illegally in federal elections, we probably wouldn’t have ObamaCare. Fifty-three percent (53%) of Democrats think tax-paying illegal immigrants should have the right to vote. Twenty-one percent (21%) of Republicans and 30% of voters not affiliated with either major political party agree.Women are more supportive than men of letting tax-paying illegal immigrants vote, but the two are in general agreement that the size of voting districts should be determined by counting only the number of eligible voters.Voters under 40 are...

    A key part of the Fifth Circuits decision to keep the freeze on President Obamas amnesty programs was the 25-page dissenting opinion written by the panels lone Obama appointee. Not only does it point to how the bloc-voting liberal justices of the Supreme Court will ultimately treat the case, it almost wholly focuses on the threshold issue of prosecutorial discretion: an executive-branch power that, if expanded to include mass grants of amnesty, would remove the last vestige of authority that Congress and the courts have in preventing immigration anarchy at our nations southern border.

    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...

And in many cases, there is significant doubt about whether his signature initiatives will stand legal scrutiny. The latest blow to Obama's second-term plans came Tuesday when a federal appeals court in New Orleans denied the administration's request to move forward with implementing his expanded executive action on immigration to defer deportation for millions of undocumented immigrants. Texas and 25 other states have sued to have it shelved. The drama is sure to ensue for months, writes the Post's...

    .....Disney, Southern California Edison and most recently Fossil Group have together fired hundreds of American tech workers and forced them to train their foreign replacements, many of whom were flown in specifically to take their job.....On their last day of employment, he and the other replaced workers were asked to turn over their badges, their Disney season passes, and their laptops and then asked to leave.... It was just a complete shock that you could do that in this country, he said........ Its just so humiliating and so anti-American. Its just, its just terrible. Its just awful.Wisconsin Gov.

    As illegal immigrants continue to seek legal status under President Obama's executive actions, the waiting list to enter the United States legally grows longer, as does the waiting time for those in the pipeline. American born Jimmy Gugliotta, who currently lives in Santiago, Chile, with his Argentinian wife and their children, has been waiting more than a year and a half for visas to bring his family to the U.S. He doesn't understand why going through the process legally puts him behind people who sneak into the U.S. illegally. "It's really sad to see that we've been put in the...

    State and local law enforcement should not be involved in immigration enforcement, President Obamas Task Force on 21st Century Policing concludes in part. Monday, the presidential task force publicly released its final report to strengthen community policing and trust among law enforcement officers and the communities they serve. More than 100-pages in length, the report offers best practices and suggestions for law enforcement to improve interactions with their communities. A portion deals with immigrants arguing that state and local law enforcement must build relationships with immigrant communities it does not delineate legal versus illegal immigrants.

    <p>LONDON The European Union on Monday approved the use of military force to take on migrant smugglers in the Mediterranean, significantly escalating Europes response to a crisis that has left at least 1,800 people dead this year.</p> <p>The decision allows European governments to move ahead with plans for a naval operation that has been taking shape for weeks and that officials say is crucial to any attempt to confront the burgeoning tide of smuggler vessels ferrying migrants from North Africa to Europe.</p>

    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 foreignerssome felons in their native countryit refuses to prosecute under President Obamas broad amnesty initiative. One of the presidents 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 authorizingand encouraginglow-level field officers to block deportations by using an...

    It's early in the campaign cycle, but it's never too early to speculate on who will win in 2016. Though most of my friends are "Ready for Hillary," I am confident that Marco Rubio will be the next president of the United States. Here's why: Marco Rubio is handsome. The effects of physical looks on presidential elections are well documented. The most famous example was 1960, when John F. Kennedy was perceived by television viewers to have beaten Nixon in their presidential debate and radio listeners said Nixon won. Data confirms the importance of looks. Researchers at Princeton University found...

    All 20 Republican lawmakers who voted against an amendment that prevents illegals from enlisting in the U.S. military refused to answer questions from Breitbart News regarding the expedited citizenship most illegals would have been eligible for once they joined the armed forces. They also each refused to answer whether they agree with House Minority Leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) calling their Republican colleagues who voted for the amendment xenophobic and un-American. That means that for now, the 20 Republicans who defected and joined Democrats in opposing the amendment are allowing Pelosis comments to remain unchallenged. ... There is a core...

    The administration issued a report Monday saying that in order to rebuild trust between police and their communities, the federal government should stop enlisting state and local police in most immigration enforcement, setting up another challenge as President Obama tries to please immigrant rights advocates while carrying out deportations. The recommendations were part of Mr. Obamas policing task force, set up in the wake of riots last year in Ferguson, Missouri, to suggest ways federal officials can help local police do their jobs better. The heart of the report called for curtailing transfer of heavy weapons and tank-style vehicles to...

    The crisis in the Mediterranean Sea with Libyan refugees has dropped out of the news lately, as the EU has mounted a serious effort to save the lives of North Africans fleeing the violence while also cracking down on smugglers. But a world away in the waters off of Indonesia, there is another crisis involving boat people. These are Muslim refugees from Myanmar, escaping persecution and violence, as well as Bangledeshis fleeing poverty and hopelessness. But the nations of Southeast Asia have taken a decidedly different approach to the problem of refugees than the EU. BBC: Fishermen in Indonesia's...
