    Alternate headline: A Democrat's best friend is people who aren't paying attention The deficit is soaring. Economic growth is still sluggish. Syria is a disaster. ObamaCare is imploding. The Supreme Court just informed the president that, much to his dismay, he does have to enforce the nation’s immigration laws. So how about that job the Barack Obama’s doing? What say you, America? Oh . . . OK:

Cruz Questions ICE Dir. Sarah Saldaña on Obama Administration's Immigration Policy (video) WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) today continued to highlight the Obama Administration’s negligence in immigration law enforcement in the Senate Committee on the Judiciary hearing titled “Oversight of the Administration’s Criminal Alien Removal Policies.” While questioning U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Director Sarah Saldaña, Sen. Cruz said, “I recognize that politically the Administration supports amnesty for people who are here illegally. The...

    You may not believe who is abusing America’s immigration laws to secure cheap labor — public schools. "The foreign teacher trafficking business has stretched from the Prince George's County, Maryland, school district (which was ordered to pay $5.9 million in back wages and penalties for H-1B abuses in 2011) to the East Baton Rouge, Louisiana, school system (which required H-1B teachers to pay a $50 interview fee, $5,000 job application fee, and a $7,500 additional fee to a recruitment agency) and beyond," Michelle Malkin and John Miano write in their new book, Sold Out: How High-Tech Billionaires and Bipartisan Beltway...

    Would a President Trump be ready to use his executive pen to stop the flood of illegal immigrants by building a fence, enforcing current immigration laws, and deporting criminal illegal aliens? We keep hearing that our current immigration system is broken and it must be overhauled to better serve the immigrants, especially the illegal ones. And in this process, it seems that immigration, whether legal or illegal, is not necessarily run in the best interest of the American people, but in the best interest of crony capitalists and the ruling elites. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), an agency...

    The push for the destruction of our current immigration laws has done nothing more than create a bone of contention and division within the American people on Immigration reform Back in 2007, while President Obama was busy campaigning to become the first black president of the United States, the majority of Americans were fully in support of immigration reform, and a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants. Flash forward to 2015 and you will see unbelievable levels of contempt and refusal to accept anything less than mass deportation of all illegals. Why? When President Obama took the oath of office...

    I can't believe that so many folks here are missing the BIG PICTURE concerning Donald Trump declaring that the Kentucky county clerk must obey the law on gay marriage. You want to know what the BIG PICTURE IS? Okay here it is: Right now MANY sanctuary cities are disobeying the immigration laws. By now claiming that the Kentucky clerk must obey the law, Trump now has the moral authority to later (or even now) claim that the sanctuary cities MUST obey the immigration laws. Oh, the officials in those cities refuse to obey the law? Good! Then they can join...

    Senator Jeff Sessions will release this statement in response to Senate's vote to advance the fast-track trade bill: Americans increasingly believe that their country isn’t serving its own citizens. They need look no further than a bipartisan vote of Congress that will transfer congressional power to the Executive Branch and, in turn, to a transnational Pacific Union and the global interests who will help write its rules. The same routine plays out over and again. We are told a massive bill must be passed, all the business lobbyists and leaders tell how grand it will be, but that it must...

    They are going there to get subsidized Section 8 housing vouchers to take to another state. Refugee resettlement is a euphemism for importing whole Muslim communities, importing jihad. I have long documented the targeting of gateway cities (smaller cities) overwhelmed with Muslim refugee immigration from countries like Somalia — cities like Emporia, Kansas, Nashville, Greeley and Fort Morgan, Colorado, Lewiston, Maine et al. The over-saturation and drain on city resources has driven these immigrants northward to settle in Wyoming, according to these reports. Organizations like Lutheran Family Services profit enormously from the Federal government handling these refugees. The sharia compliant...

    The Obama administration is cooking the books to make it look like they are enforcing immigration laws, when in reality they are enacting amnesty through inaction… Worksite enforcement has dropped 70%, making it easier for illegal immigrants to live and work in the U.S… DHS recently established a working group with the specific purpose of overruling or preventing orders of removal for illegal immigrants. Obama speaking (to LaRaza Hispanics) voters, deportation numbers are ‘deceptive.’… We could free up millions of jobs for citizens and legal immigrants if we enforced our immigration laws.

    Nearly 12,000 registered voters in Colorado are listed as non-U.S. citizens, the secretary of state's office says. Gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo of the American Constitution Party has long campaigned for tougher immigration laws and enforcement. He said he was stunned by the non-citizen listings. "I want to know why they are not required to fill in the box. That in itself should be a felony," Tancredo said. State Rep. Kent Lambert, a Republican from Colorado Springs, said he and other Republicans have tried to change state law to require proof of citizenship -- which has been ruled legal by the...

    A federal judge is preventing a New York town from enforcing its “unconstitutional” law prohibiting illegal immigrant day laborers from seeking work on public property and people from hiring them. Oyster Bay, a Long Island town of about 300,000 residents, passed the public safety measure last fall because day laborers—and those who hire them—were creating dangerous traffic situations in the municipality’s main roads. The ordinance prohibits pedestrians from soliciting employment and bars drivers from stopping to hire workers. This week a group of day laborers filed a lawsuit claiming that the town enacted a law with a “discriminatory community animus”...

    It appears that the California Penal Code (Section 834b) includes legal status verification language that is quite similar to Arizona’s recently passed SB1070 law. Looking at the exact language of the California Penal Code in “CHAPTER 5. ARREST, BY WHOM AND HOW MADE …… 833-851.90″ under Section 834b one can find this language: “The verification process may include, but shall not be limited to, questioning the person regarding his or her date and place of birth, and entry into the United States, and demanding documentation to indicate his or her legal status.”

Following Arizona Governor Jan Brewer’s signing of a controversial immigration bill, media outlets, President Barack Obama, and even the Government of Mexico all jumped in to disparage not just the law but Arizona in general. What has not made it to the debate are some of the conditions along the border that lead to action by the state legislature.

    Arizona fired two clear shots over the bow of the dinghy bowbama (h/t LC) during its 2010 legislative session: expanding state enforcement of its own and federal immigration laws, and requiring constitutional eligibility determinations as a condition of ballot access in 2012. Obama is surely sweating over both of these actions, but can only show his anger at the illegal immigration action. He is caught flat-footed on the eligibility requirement in his attempt to gain a second term.Obama is fuming. How dare Arizona pass a bill giving its law enforcement officers authority to deal with the invasion of illegal immigrants?...

    Los Angeles -- When the immigration rights movement erupted from coast to coast beginning in March, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa embraced it with greater energy and visibility than just about any other political leader. Villaraigosa, the first Latino elected mayor here in modern times, spoke at every major demonstration in the city, in Spanish and in English, backing the calls for a fair path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants. He was lauded by many of the demonstrators as a champion of their cause. But the normally voluble mayor was uncharacteristically restrained in discussing the issue in an interview last...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Faced with growing pressure from Southern states, the Bush administration wants the military to come up with ideas to help solve security problems along the U.S. border with Mexico. In back-to-back moves this week, the Pentagon began exploring ways to lend support at the Southern border, while the House on Thursday voted to allow the Homeland Security Department in limited cases to use soldiers in that region. At the Pentagon, Paul McHale, the assistant secretary of defense for homeland defense, asked officials to offer options for the use of military resources and troops -- particularly the National...

    Senate leaders say they have reached a deal to revive a broad immigration bill that could provide millions of illegal immigrants a chance to become American citizens. The agreement doesn't involve provisions of the law, but it does end, for now, a lingering political standoff. The agreement brokered by Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, R-Tenn., and Minority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., breaks a political stalemate that has lingered for weeks. Key to the agreement is who will be negotiating a compromise with the House and its tough enforcement-only bill. The House passed much more strict immigration legislation in December. It...

The arrests at Fischer Homes, a leading builder in Kentucky, Indiana and Ohio, followed the April 19 arrests of seven current and former managers and more than 1,100 workers for Ifco Systems North America Inc., a subsidiary of a Dutch manufacturer of plastic crates and wooden pallets. The effort comes as Congress debates plans to overhaul the nation's immigration laws. "We will continue to bring criminal actions against employers...

    Maine is one signature away from becoming the first Illegal Alien Sanctuary State in America. Immigration lawyers supporting illegal aliens are pushing Governor Baldacci to sign an executive order that will stop state agencies from questioning a person's immigration status. More distressing is the fact that all major newspapers in Maine are owned by the same family. That family favors illegal immigration. Therefore, this executive order is being shoved down citizens' throats while they sleep. A spokeswoman said, "They are working so fast and quietly to leave this a 'done deed' before word of the sell-out can hit the national...

Malkin said the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, in which 15 of the 19 hijackers used visas obtained in Saudi Arabia to enter the United States, highlighted the importance of fixing lapses in the immigration and student visa systems that make it too easy for America's enemies to enter the country.
