    The Texas senator stands for conservative principles. Unfortunately, that's all he does with them.Is Ted Cruz good for conservatives? Or is it the other way around? The answer matters a lot, because it's not impossible that this guy could be the next GOP presidential nominee. A close adviser to Texas' junior senator told National Journal that there is a 90 percent chance the Tea Party star will run for president in 2016. "And honestly, 90 is lowballing it." Cruz denies that he has made plans past the midterms. But boy, he sure does look like a man preparing for a...

    Voters overwhelmingly reject extending legal protections to the new illegal immigrant children who surged across the U.S.-Mexico border this year, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll released Wednesday. Less than a third of voters say they want illegal immigrant children to be housed in their home states, and 53 percent said the children shouldn’t be allowed to attend taxpayer-supported public schools. The Supreme Court has ruled that all children, regardless of legal status, are entitled to primary and secondary education in public schools, leaving some districts to face a surge of children with poor or nonexistent English language skills...

    Mexico is helping some of its citizens apply for a controversial immigration program in the U.S. called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. Since the Obama administration created the program in 2012, more than 580,000 unauthorized immigrants brought to the U.S. as minors have received temporary relief from deportation and been given work permits that last for at least two years. But 45 percent of those who are eligible for DACA have not applied, and the cost may be holding some back. Immigrants have to pay a total of $465 to the Department of Homeland Security for fees related...

    Earlier this summer when the unaccompanied minor crisis was at its peak (after really starting in October 2013) in Texas and Arizona, Border Patrol agents working inside processing facilities reported cases of Tuberculosis, scabies and other diseases being brought into the United States by unvaccinated illegal aliens. Warnings were issued by local communities about the impact these diseases could potentially have in the public school system where their children are educated. For example, protestors in Murrieta, California turned bus loads of illegal immigrants away, citing concerns about public health. Those protestors and people who warned about the spread of...

    California Gov. Jerry Brown approved $3 million in taxpayer-funded legal aid to illegal alien children fighting deportation hearings--yet vetoed $100 million for state-funded universities, citing low property tax receipts. The funding for lawyers for the illegal alien minors comes amidst a nationwide push by outgoing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to recruit legal talent to represent the children and teenagers--who often cross the U.S.-Mexico border unaccompanied-- against law enforcement proceedings. Holder is the nation's chief law enforcement officer. President Barack Obama and other Democrats have supported the legal recruitment effort. "Helping these young people navigate our legal system is the decent thing to do...

    Rights: A Ninth Circuit Court ruling that students can't wear American flag T-shirts because they may offend Mexican students celebrating Cinco de Mayo is a ridiculous yet dangerous assault on the First Amendment. On Sept. 17, more than four years after Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., sent students home for wearing American flag t-shirts, an 11-judge Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals panel ruled that it was the right choice, "tailored to avert violence and focused on student safety." The decision upheld the court's three-judge ruling in February that justified the school's actions based on tensions between Mexican...

    MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — New England Republicans are poised to win elections in bright blue states and give the Democrats a run for their money in areas they've dominated for years. And many Republicans say their momentum is largely thanks to President Barack Obama's planned executive amnesty. Polling data shows that governor’s races in Massachusetts and Rhode Island—two solidly blue states—are winnable for GOP candidates. Maine’s incumbent conservative GOP governor is locked in a dead heat for his position, holding fast after many in the political class thought it would be a cakewalk to make him a one-term proposition.

    The Center for Immigration Studies reports this morning that the number of immigrants, both legal and illegal, in the United States is now 41.3 million, the highest it has ever been. Even as the American economy continues to sputter and many Americans face unemployment or underemployment, an additional 1.4 million immigrants entered the country between 2010 and 2013. During that same period, the countries seeing the greatest increase in the number of their citizens becoming immigrants to America were India, China, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Jamaica, Bangladesh, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Iraq. In percentage terms, 13.1% of all those living...

    Of course they didn’t. Who thought they would? This is precisely what amnesty shills have in mind when they demand “due process” for illegals. You’re detained, you’re given a date to meet with immigration agents or appear before an immigration judge to decide whether you’ll be deported, and then you’re sent on your merry way into the United States — never to be seen by the state again. The point of “due process” is to give illegals an easy way to avoid the process. DHS understands this.So rest easy. Our immigration system is working exactly the way it’s supposed...

Obama vowed to hold off on broad executive amnesty that would also potentially grant temporary work permits to millions of illegal immigrants until after the midterm elections to help Senate Democrats retain the Senate. According to the Military Times, this executive action will expand MAVNI (Military Accessions in the National Interest) "to target foreign nationals with high-demand skills, mostly rare foreign language expertise,...

Brookings provided the data to justify what conservatives have known all along, the mastery of English proficiency matters greatly.

    Elites in the permanent political class are on the retreat, and no issue reflects that more than amnesty legislation. Not surprisingly, amnesty represents the divide between the Masters of the Universe in the bipartisan permanent political class and American workers. For nearly thirty years, American workers have held the line on amnesty. As Michael Lind notes in Politico Magazine, which is one of the favored publications of the permanent political class, Obama's recent executive amnesty delay was another "massive defeat for America’s elite consensus" and exemplified how when the public is presented with facts, they strongly come out against "the...

    For the first time since its creation in 1990, the “investor immigrant” visa program looks on track to have its annual 10,000 allotment fully used up this year. This milestone for the program is due to the increasing number of wealthy applicants from mainland China, a country that now boasts almost 2.5 million millionaires. The “EB-5 visa”, which gives expedited citizenship to applicants who invest $500,000 in a jobs-generating business for 2 years, is not only confusing and poorly designed but it’s been rife with investor fraud since it started. Nevertheless, because of the access a green card provides to...

    Background: The anti-Islamist party of the Sweden Democrats (Sverigedemokraterna) recently made huge success in national elections. Despite the fact that Swedes drive around in $35 000 Volvos and build even larger homes for themselves than other rich people like Americans and Australians do, something obviously is rotten in this neighbor state of Denmark and it's not surströmming (google it!). Sooner, it's a failed policy on immigration. Anyhow, this is the analysis of former (Socialist or at least Social Democratic) PM Persson who once expressed doubts about the numbers of non-Western immigrants Sweden has let in. The article: "Former Swedish Prime...

    The man who jumped the White House railing Sept. 19 deserves the right to live in President Barack Obama’s home, just as the president is allowing hundreds of thousands of border-jumping Central Americans to live in Americans’ homeland, says a new tongue-in-cheek petition posted at the White House website. “We urge President Obama to immediately and publicly recognize that Mr. Omar J. Gonzalez, an oppressed migrant, was merely looking for a better life when he entered the White House after going over the classist, divisive and needless fence,” says the petition,

    We often hear about the glory days of immigration when America threw open her arms to the huddled masses, but one thing you don’t hear about is how those people had to make it on their own without a government safety net. There was plenty of private charity, which was highly encouraged, but health care, a minimum-wage job, college entrance, housing, legal representation, and education certainly weren’t promised—not like today.

    As a bright, eager student at Cambridge University, with one degree already under her belt, Nabilah Phillips could look forward to a successful career and comfortable future. After completing her engineering PhD she would, perhaps, take up a coveted, highly-paid job in industry, or stay on as an academic lecturing the next generation. Instead, however, Nabilah, now 35, took an extremely unexpected path.She abandoned her studies, forfeiting her hard-won university place and entered a polygamous marriag e, becoming the second wife of London businessman Hasan Phillips, 32 — who has since acquired a third wife. Nabilah, her husband and his...

    One hundred years ago, on Sept. 21, 1914, Louis Olasky signed a Declaration of Intention “to renounce forever all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty, and particularly to Nicholas II, Emperor of All the Russias.”He also declared in writing, “I am not an anarchist; I am not a polygamist nor a believer in the practice of polygamy; and it is my intention in good faith to become a citizen of the United States of America and to permanently reside therein SO HELP ME GOD.” Five years later, as soon as he legally could, Louis Olasky...

    Texas Rangers and members of the Texas State Guard are beginning or are about to begin an effort in Brooks County near Falfurrias to help stop the climbing number of deaths related to human smuggling operations. Ranchers in the area reported a community partnership meeting where they were briefed on the proposed activities. This year, fifty-two people have been found dead in the arid ranch lands of Brooks County having gotten lost while attempting to bypass the Border Patrol checkpoint located thirteen miles south of Falfurrias. Texas Department of Public Safety reports that since 2011, at least 332 sets of...

    Colorado is now the first state in the union whose complete roster of county jailers has individually rejected retainer requests from Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Due to pressure brought by the ACLU, no more immigrants will be held in the jails until federal agents make a decision as to whether the immigrants will be jailed for possible immigration violations. Mark Silverstein, legal director for the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado, cheered, "All sheriffs have agreed that they don't have the ability to deprive people of liberty, even for a few days, because they are suspected of being here illegally.”...

    Anyone who still doubts that there is a deliberate takeover of America being orchestrated through an alliance of treachery between Mexico, Central America and the Democrat Party needs to stop kidding themselves and open their eyes to the events that are going on around them. On Constitution Day, September 17th, the Ninth Circuit Court of California refused to hear a case en banc in an appeal of a decision against four American students who were sent home from Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, CA. The four were suspended for one day for wearing American Flag apparel on May...

    Montgomery County, Maryland, is one of the wealthiest and most liberal counties in America. If there’s a dumb progressive idea that didn’t start there, it will get there sooner or later. Along those lines, the powers that be in Montgomery County are very concerned about low voter turnout. So concerned, in fact, the all Democrat County Council formed a “Right to Vote” Task Force to come up with ways to encourage more people to vote. The task force produced a 76-page report with more than a few suggestions that could raise a few eyebrows. Recommendations 1-3 are: 1. The Task...

    It’s official: the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has issued an order declining a request for an en banc hearing in a case involving four students in at a California high school who were sent home for wearing American flag T-shirts on Cinco de Mayo. The full slate of Ninth Circuit judges has thus agreed with a lower district court and with a trio of appellate judges that officials at Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif. could censor students who wanted to wear flag-emblazoned shirts. The federal appeals court issued its denial of an en banc hearing...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Enterovirus D68 is likely coming -- if it hasn't already -- to a state near you.
