  • Democrats Seeking Pell Grants for Inmates at the Expense of the Law Abiding

    Six democrats are seeking to grant Pell Grants to inmates in prison. They claim that it will make them desirable applicants to companies when they get out of prison. Hey liberals, believe it or not companies aren’t clamoring for graduates of Stu’s University online even if they haven’t knocked off a bank or raped small children. So, why would these cons be employable? Of course, if they were to take computer classes they might stop mugging senior citizens and join the growing identity theft industry. It’s also important to know that there is not an endless pool of money in...

    I am a citizen in Congressman Dave Brat’s District 7, and I am not alone in being extremely proud of him for speaking out on the danger of ISIS and Dave’s seeking to make all citizens aware of the danger of ISIS recruits joining our military. I can scarcely believe that voices have been raised in denial of this threat, when as a Nation we were horrified when one of our own, a Major in the US Army, screamed “Allahu Akbar” and began mowing down his fellow unarmed soldiers, filling the Fort Hood mortuary.

    The Examiner ^ | May 22, 2015 | Bob Knudsen
    Senator Ted Cruz was the first Republican to officially announce his campaign to run for the presidency in 2016. Since coming onto the national stage he has been a very high profile and outspoken member of the Senate and has very strong name recognition and support among conservatives in the country. Hailing from Texas, the largest Republican-leaning state in the union and the only large population state that is all but guaranteed to vote GOP, his campaign is enticing for the promise of how many electoral votes he can deliver. He is also the first major Hispanic candidate to run...

    Believe it or not there is actual evidence that illegal immigration does depress wages for the native-born but you are not likely to hear about it in the multitude of classes that touch on various “diasporas.” “In studies at meat-packing plants, when illegal immigrants are taken out, wages went up,” Professor Philip Cafaro pointed out in a panel discussion at the National Press Club last Thursday sponsored by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS). Cafaro teaches philosophy at Colorado State University in Fort Collins. He has amassed a multitude of research on the subject, much of it on display in...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/22/2015 | Mike Konrad
    Europe is now being flooded with immigrants, chiefly from Africa or the Arab world, those least likely to assimilate well. As Europe confronts rapidly escalating migration crisis driven by war, persecution and poverty in an arc of strife from West Africa to Afghanistan, even high-level European officials are beginning to admit the obvious. -- The Washington Post Europe is being overrun. Now, this would not necessarily be a disaster, if the immigrants were assimilable en masse. As one who scours old history books, there was a massive scare around 1900 that the United States was accepting too many non-Anglo-Saxons. Chinese...

    Why Scott Walker FLip-Flopped. One of the few intelligent and worthwhile things that John Maynard Keynes contributed to society is the following quote “When my information changes, I alter my conclusions. What do you do, sir?” Governor Scott Walker’s information has recently changed. Remember that Governor Walker had the guts to back down the Progressive Establishment in The Democratic Party of Wisconsin. It thus comes as no surprise that he also has the guts to take on the increasingly progressive and less pro-American pro-immigration caucus in the GOP. Walker explains his qualms concerning this headlong rush to replace domestic American...

    Do You Have Amnesty in that Basket? Did Ted Cruz support an immigration solution that involved legalizing the 11 million or so illegals now in the U.S.? When we last left this dispute, Cruz staffers were denying it. True, a New York Times article had asserted that Cruz was carving out a “middle ground” on immigration, offering illegals legalization (work permits that would allow them to stay here) but making stopping short of the citizenship offered in the Senate’s “Gang of 8″ bill:Asked about what to do with the people here illegally, however, he stressed that he had never tried...

Instead, they will have to continue waiting – but it won’t be quietly. Rallies are scheduled across the country on Tuesday as advocacy groups protest what would have marked the unofficial kick-off date to President Obama’s second – and most sweeping – executive action program on immigration. Known as DAPA, the executive measure would have benefited as many as 3.7 million undocumented immigrant adults who have children born...

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.

    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 heart of the report called for curtailing transfer of heavy weapons and tank-style vehicles to...

But for a long time—most of the 1990s, in fact—Walker was content to be a backbencher in the state assembly and didn’t do much to advance himself up the party ranks. While the seniority he gathered in his state assembly career (1993–2002) from his safe Republican district just outside Milwaukee allowed him to chair some committees, the most attention-grabbing thing he did was to protest the hiring of a Wiccan as a chaplain in a state prison. The idea that he would become...

Pay attention to this because its going to happen again this summer. The root cause of the border crisis is directly attributable to President Barack Obama’s executive amnesty created under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) plan. DACA created the incentive for illegal aliens to break our laws as Obama deliberately undermined our nation’s sovereignty by simply creating his own. American’s must realize that this administration is solely responsible for the...

By strengthening trade relationships with our partners in the Americas, we have helped strengthen democracies and created new consumers for U.S. products and services. “Mexico’s inclusion in Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations is a welcome step that...

    WASHINGTON — • Between 10% and 15% of Fresno County Jail inmates are unauthorized immigrants • Local law enforcement struggles with the cost of federal immigration laws • A divided Capitol Hill signals that a quick fix isn’t likely Fresno County Sheriff Margaret Mims on Tuesday joined other law enforcement officers at the White House in trying to make an arresting case for comprehensive immigration reform. But with Congress stalled and immediate Capitol Hill progress extremely unlikely, Mims and her uniformed allies know they must aim long. “We’re not as close as we have been in the past for Congress...

    On May 6, 2015 Fox News reported, “Purported ISIS warning claims terror cells in place in 15 states.” Here is how that ominous report began: A grim online warning from a self-described American jihadist said Sunday’s terror attack in Texas was the work of ISIS and that the terrorist group has scores of “trained soldiers” positioned in 15 states, awaiting orders to carry out more operations. The warning, which was posted on a file-sharing site, could not be verified, but was signed by Abu Ibrahim Al Ameriki. That name matches the moniker of a shadowy American known to have joined...

    Congressional Republicans have joined the legal battle over President Barack Obama’s executive action on immigration, which he announced late last year. Currently, 26 states have challenged the president’s executive order, which temporarily stops deportations and grants work permits to specific groups of immigrants living in the country illegally. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, and Republican Rep. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia filed an amicus brief with the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans to counter the executive actions. “Congress has created a comprehensive immigration scheme — which expresses its desired policy as to classes of...
  • The Controversy Over Immigration And New Trade Authority

    A controversy has emerged about whether granting the president Trade Promotion Authority (TPA) would result in expanded immigration. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), chair of the Senate’s immigration subcommittee, has written, “There are numerous ways TPA could facilitate immigration increases above current law – and precious few ways anyone in Congress could stop its happening.” To negotiate international trade agreements, a U.S. president needs Trade Promotion Authority. TPA allows a president to finalize an agreement and put it before the U.S. Congress for an up-or-down vote. Without such authority, other countries would not conclude trade agreements with the United States, since...
  • Scott Walker's Olympic Quality Immigration Flip Flop

    Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker's comments last month opposing legal immigration came as a shock. How could a man who until a little over month ago was even willing to consider a path to citizenship for undocumented workers pull such an "Olympic-quality flip-flop"? But the real story is not Walker's switcheroo, but the conservative punditocracy's switcheroo that paved the way for his. Walker, who is fast sprinting into the first place for the Republican presidential nomination, told Glenn Beck recently that "The next president and the next Congress need to make decisions about a legal immigration system that's based, first and...
  • Obama Lets Illegal-Alien Criminals Run Free

    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...

  • Jeb Bush: I’d rescind Obama’s executive amnesty — as part of a comprehensive immigration deal

    The headlines I’ve seen this morning about this exchange claim that Bush said he wouldn’t rescind Obama’s executive action “right away,” which is sort of true. What Jeb said is that he’d rescind the amnesty as part of a deal with Congress on immigration. That won’t happen on day one of his presidency, so yeah, technically O’s order would remain intact for at least a few months while President Bush works out the details of the new bill with the House and Senate. But focusing on the timing misses the point of what Jeb’s implying: If Republicans in Congress refuse...

    Jim Geraghty has a piece on the home page today about how Jeff Sessions got Scott Walker’s ear on immigration. Here is a further statement from Sessions on the debate: >>>>Any political party that wants to win needs to demonstrate that it is willing to go to bat for working Americans. Perhaps no issue more divides a small handful of elites in Washington, D.C. from the American people than the issue of immigration. The idea that immigration should be increased beyond any level ever recorded — without any discussion of its social or economic impact — is not mainstream, but...
  • Bishops anticipate message from pope on immigrant detention

    Catholic bishops called Monday for the federal government's immigrant detention system to be dismantled, and predicted Pope Francis would address the issue when he visits the U.S. this fall. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops said in a sobering report that tens of thousands of immigrants are housed in prison-like conditions that cause psychological harm and are inhumane and ineffective. That includes a large number of moms and little kids, because of a growth in family detention after last summer's spike in migration from Central America....
