  • Ted Kennedy Sells Us Out - Again! (Jon Dougherty On Ted Kennedy's Third Amnesty Bill Alert)

    How can you tell if the most recent incarnation of "immigration reform" being resurrected by the Democrat-controlled Congress is a bad piece of legislation? The answer is easy: Because Sen. Ted Kennedy, D-Mass., has taken a lead role in getting it passed. The last time Kennedy took up reforming the nation's immigration standards, America was irreparably harmed. For it was Kennedy who, four decades ago, helped put in place the very system that mightily contributed to today's illegal immigration nightmare. The 1965 Immigration Reform Act, the creation of radical, far-left "Down With The Establishment" ideologues hellbent on reversing what had...
  • How 'bout some honesty in the immigration debate (Jon Dougherty Alert)

    The head of an activist Hispanic organization asserted last week in an interview "there's no data" to support allegations that massive numbers of illegal aliens residing in the U.S. 1) are depressing wages for American workers; and 2) are taking jobs from American workers. For the record, neither of her assertions is true - but then again, so much of the illegal immigration debate is devoid of honesty. Janet Murguia, executive director for the extremist National Council of La Raza, told the Arizona Daily Sun: "As long as there's a need for a labor force that's going to fill very...

    © 2004 By Jon E. Dougherty December 31, 2004 After the 2000 presidential election fracas, when Democrat Al Gore tried to sue his way into the White House, I suppose it was a little too optimistic to believe we would emerge from the 2004 election cycle unscathed. Sure enough, a Democrat and Republican have been locked in political combat in Washington state since the Nov. 2 election results triggered an automatic recount, in what has become the closest gubernatorial race in state history. The GOP's candidate, Dino Rossi—a real estate developer and former state Senate leader—won the initial race over...

Dougherty documents a truth that both major political parties have missed – namely, that sustained high immigration levels from south of the border will continue to pose economic, labor, security and criminal threats to the United States, unless American and Mexican leaders find ways to limit it. This is the second of four excerpts featured on WorldNetDaily...

    On September 13, 2002, FBI agents Sergio Barrio, 39, and Samantha Mikeska, 38, were aboard a freight train traversing the rolling hills of Mount Cristo Rey near the U.S.-Mexico border in Texas. They were riding the rail for much the same reason agents from Wells Fargo, Pinkerton’s, and other frontier-era security companies in the Old West rode rails—to thwart a rash of train robberies that had been taking place on that line for months.

    Bush Immigration Plan Borders On Treason By Chuck Baldwin Food For Thought From The Chuck Wagon January 9, 2003 President George W. Bush wants to give some eight to ten million illegal aliens, most of them from Mexico, legal status. The plan would legalize these aliens as "temporary workers," which would allow them to work freely in the United States without fear of deportation. The plan is so disastrous to our country's well being and so fraught with potential risk to our country's security that the plan should be regarded as bordering treason! Already, more than ten percent of Mexico's...

    States should oppose seatbelt mandate Posted: December 19, 20031:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 WorldNetDaily.com Don't look now, but Congress is preparing more legislation aimed at blackmailing states into going along with another unfunded, unconstitutional mandate Washington has no original authority to issue. Earlier this month, Sens. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., and John Warner, R-Va., teamed up to sponsor a bill that would create a national seatbelt law. The motivation is, of course, said to be noble. Advocates want the new law because they claim it will save countless lives. Auto insurance firms support it because they claim it will improve their bottom lines,...

    Kidnapping in Candelaria Posted: December 5, 20031:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 WorldNetDaily.com Ever hear of a place called Candelaria, Texas? Few have, but it's the most recent battleground in the escalating border war between Mexico and the United States – the one officials on both sides of the Rio Grande try desperately to ignore, even as their own citizens become further entangled in a mess that gets worse by the month. Details are sketchy, but they are clear enough to know that essentially this is what happened. According to law-enforcement sources I spoke with, a squad of armed Mexican paramilitary police or...

    Tinhorn politicians and immigration Posted: November 14, 20031:00 a.m. Eastern © 2003 WorldNetDaily.com There are two things in abundant supply along the U.S. Southwest border – tinhorn politicians and illegal immigrants. The two are mutually inclusive as one group could not survive without the other. Illegal immigrants need sympathetic (pathetic?) tinhorn politicians to continue invading U.S. turf with impunity. Tinhorns need the hordes of illegal aliens to keep their power. There is a lunacy that comes with this equation. Under the guise of "diversity," the tinhorns pride themselves on looking the other way when someone is stealing the apples from the trees...

    In time for Veterans Day and the release of former Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch's autobiography, a military reform group is calling on President Bush to revise "Clinton-era rules" it says unnecessarily expose servicewomen to greater risk. The Center for Military Readiness, in a position paper published on its Web site, says new details about the sexually abusive treatment of Lynch by her Iraqi captors should be enough to spur lawmakers into ensuring military women in the future are better protected and shielded from combat roles. "We need brave women in the military, but no one's daughter should have to...

    Gun-control enthusiasts in the United States and western Europe have a lot to answer for on the heels of two reports last week that prove, beyond a doubt, the barbaric lunacy of ensuring citizens are defenseless against armed criminal threats. In the first, a British paper reported authorities have seen a 35 percent increase in gun violence in 2002 – not so ironically, in the sixth year since Parliament passed a law banning personal ownership of most firearms. So bad is the violence now that police say it has "spread like a cancer" across the whole of the country, the...

    A series of articles published by WorldNetDaily.com this week have proven, beyond a shadow of doubt, that Americans will soon have to endure more of the kind of statism normally reserved for despotic regimes in the Third World. That outrage will come in the form of a national ID card. The crux of the articles is about granting driver's licenses to illegal aliens, which – according to one immigration-reform group – is occurring in many more states than previously believed. Though driver's licensing officials in some of those states vehemently deny illegals are beating their systems, several residents of these...

    The owners of the Sacramento Kings professional basketball team have made a $100,000 donation to the "No on Recall" campaign of Gov. Gray Davis, just as a bill that would involve taxpayers in financing a new arena for the NBA franchise has reached the governor's desk. According to KCRA-TV in Sacramento, Kings owners Joe and Gavin Maloof made the donation last week in what critics call a blatant quid pro quo for support of Assembly Bill 944. The bill would allow the Maloofs to build a new downtown arena along the Sacramento city rail yard with taxpayer money but with...

    Despite denials from state transportation officials that Nevada does not allow illegal aliens to obtain driver's licenses, one immigration-reform group is sticking by its earlier assertion illegals can and have become licensed there using legal loopholes. Last week, WorldNetDaily reported Nevada was among 15 states named by the Federation for American Immigration Reform as allowing illegals to get driver's licenses. Shortly after the story broke, officials from the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles contacted WorldNetDaily and insisted the information was incorrect. "Nevada has not, and will not, give driver's licenses to illegal immigrants," said one state DMV official. Also, according...

    Illegal aliens who soon will be able to obtain legal driver's licenses in California may also be able to vote in federal elections under terms of a new law set to take effect in January, analysts say. Under the requirements of the "Help America Vote Act," passed in the wake of the 2000 presidential election recount debacle, states are now required to implement new standardized voting regulations, which include verifying voter identity, according to an analysis of the law by Public Citizen, a national non-partisan consumer-advocacy group. One way the new law allows voters to be identified is via a...

    President Clinton had more than a dozen opportunities during his two terms to either capture or kill al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden but either refused or was too consumed by scandal to act, a new book claims. Former Wall Street Journal editorial writer and author Richard Miniter also says in his book, "Losing Bin Laden: How Bill Clinton's Failures Unleashed Global Terror," that the former commander in chief was most responsible for the rise of the world's foremost terrorist mastermind. Besides being "distracted" by his sexual scandals, Miniter said Clinton was hampered by "ideology," in that he didn't believe assassinating...

    Four illegal aliens from Mexico who claimed they were robbed at gunpoint by American citizens patrolling a private ranch in Texas have dropped their lawsuit against the owner of the property. Marvin Rader, an attorney for Jim Hogg County rancher Joe Sutton, told WorldNetDaily the four had dropped the suit "without prejudice," meaning they could reinstate it at a later date. He said Southern Poverty Law Center lawyers who are handling the Mexicans' case did not give a reason for dropping the suit.
