    Radical abortion supporters are calling for a Ferguson type revolution against pro-lifers in an odd place, outside a rally organized by Black preachers in California. The event was organized by Rev. Walter Hoye, a Black pro-life minister , and took place Friday in Oakland. An page on Hoye’s website about the rally reads, “We walk because abortion in the Black community is a form of genocide, it is the Darfur of America. We walk because abortion in Black America is the civil rights issue of our day. We walk because abortion does violence, both physically and emotionally, to men and...

    Do you wish to spend the rest of your life supporting swarms of non-citizens streaming across our borders and voting for you to give them more of your earnings? If not, it would be a good idea to pay more attention to wiping out America’s rampant vote fraud, clearly a Democrat plan to secure a permanent majority of rent seekers.

    Ferguson demonstrators stormed a St. Louis County Council meeting on Tuesday evening and threatened more violence and to shut down St. Louis Rams and Cardinals games if the officer who shot Michael Brown to death is not arrested or indicted. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported that "protesters demanded the arrest of Darren Wilson, the police officer who shot 18-year-old Michael Brown to death on a Ferguson street five weeks ago, the removal of County Prosecutor Robert McCulloch from the Brown case, the resignations of County Police Chief Jon Belmar and Ferguson Police Chief Thomas Jackson and accountability from the elected...

    Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.) said Thursday that he refused to accept an award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce because of that group’s position on immigration, and called the Chamber the “biggest pro-amnesty group” in the country. “The Chamber of Commerce is beholden to special interests and has long since forgotten the main street businesses that struggle everyday to make payroll and keep their company afloat,” Bentivolio said. “It is with great pride that I reject their award, and call on them to stand on the side of America, instead of on the side of China and corporate interests seeking...

Perhaps even worse, “federal regulators and prosecutors have so much power that they can pressure people who are totally innocent into pleading guilty and paying fines.”

    Attorney General Eric Holder is taking the lawless attitude of the Obama administration and passing it down to state attorneys general. Yesterday during an interview with The New York Times, Holder said state attorneys general do not have to enforce laws they disagree with, specifically when it comes to the issue of gay marriage. It is highly unusual for the United States attorney general to advise his state counterparts on how and when to refuse to defend state laws. But Mr. Holder said when laws touch on core constitutional issues like equal protection, an attorney general should apply the highest...

    The Washington Times ^ | November 15, 2013 | Stephen Dinan
    Rep. Jared Polis said Friday the key problem with health care right now is that illegal immigrants aren’t included in Obamacare, and said part of the solution is to pass a bill granting them citizenship rights. The House is debating a GOP-written bill that would allow Americans to keep their health plans that have been canceled under Obamacare, but Mr. Polis, a Colorado Democrat, said the chamber should instead be looking at ways to make sure everyone in the country is covered by the Affordable Care Act — including illegal immigrants. “American citizens are essentially being forced to pay for...

    NEW ORLEANS -- The population of undocumented workers in Louisiana is estimated to be around 65,000 according to the Pew Research Center's Hispanic Trends Project. Angela Castro is one of those 65,000. Castro came to New Orleans from Honduras shortly after Hurricane Katrina when opportunities for work were ripe and plentiful. She's since had two children. Castro says she and many undocumented immigrants often avoid attention. On Thursday, they sought it. "We're all human beings. We have the right to remain in this country. In my country it's very poor. I came here to work, and this is where my...

    American Thinker ^ | 04/24/2013 | Cindy Simpson
    Not a single word in the 844-page "Border Security, Economic Opportunity and Immigration Modernization Act" introduced by Senator Marco Rubio and the "Gang of Eight" addresses the controversial practice of "birthright citizenship." Birthright citizenship is the common description given to the automatic grant of U.S. citizenship to babies born in the U.S. regardless of the citizenship status of the parents. Many experts agree with the verdict of law professor Lino Graglia -- that the practice generates "perhaps the greatest possible inducement to illegal entry." The failure of Congress to confront the subject is nothing new. The "four pillars" of the...

    Just when you would think that the far Left Obama booster organization could not get any more ridiculous, it sinks to ever lower levels of absurdity. The latest example involves MoveOn’s push to render the phrase “illegal aliens” or “illegal immigrants” hate speech. A video posted last week at’s website charges that calling illegal immigrants “illegal” fits the definition of a hate crime and calls for the word “illegal” to be abolished when describing individuals entering the United States illegally. They would prefer using adjectives such as “undocumented” immigrants or “unauthorized” immigrants.

    On July 1, Barack Obama spoke of the immigrants who helped build our country—such as my great-grandparents. They passed through public health screening, obeyed the law, worked hard, and never got welfare benefits. They learned the English language and American history. Some even carried the Constitution of their beloved adopted homeland in their pocket throughout their lives. They asked only for the opportunity to contribute. Should we, as Obama suggested, break down the bureaucratic barriers that hinder such people? Absolutely. That is not what the controversy is about. The issue is illegal immigration—lawbreaking. Controversy is inflamed by marches of angry...

Lydia Guzman, director of the nonprofit immigrant advocacy group Respect/Respeto, is the trunk of a sophisticated texting tree designed to alert thousands of people within minutes to the details of the sweeps, which critics contend are an excuse to round up illegal immigrants, The Arizona Republic newspaper reported. Guzman said the messages are part of an effort to protect Latinos and others from becoming victims of racial profiling by sheriff's deputies. Deputies have been accused...

    WASHINGTON - The government's plan to crack down on illegal workers could cost employers more than $1 billion a year and legal workers billions in lost wages, a study commissioned by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce says. Those costs are enough to trigger a federal law that would require the Homeland Security Department to analyze more thoroughly the effect of its proposal, said Richard Belzer, a consultant hired by the chamber to do the study. It was made available to The Associated Press on Thursday. The department's proposed "no match" rule would require employers to fire workers who can't resolve...

    The U.S. Senate's compromise immigration bill offers something for everyone to hate, including presidential candidates forced to confront the divisive issue. Unlike the war in Iraq, which separates lawmakers mainly along party lines, immigration fractures Republican and Democratic ranks from within: splitting business interests from social conservatives, dividing labor from Hispanic groups. "The issue is fraught with danger," said John Anzalone, a Democratic pollster. "It's one where it's tough to please everybody within your base or coalition." For that reason, perhaps, the only major candidate who embraced the bipartisan proposal announced Thursday was Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., -- which was...

But a study by two communications professors that suggests the Bush Justice Department is seven times more likely to investigate Democrats than Republicans may point to a much larger scandal.The professors, John Cragan, of Illinois State University, and Donald Shields, of the University of Missouri-St. Louis, looked at news reports of 375 elected officials between 2001 and 2006 and concluded the...

Here in Gwinnett County, Ga., it wasn't any different - until lawmakers outlawed the $1 street-corner taco vendor last month. Hispanic purveyors of the workingman's lunch represent an immigration policy many Americans feel has gone haywire. In many interior states where the Hispanic immigration had been minimal until recently, residents are encountering more new faces speaking an incomprehensible language and infiltrating street corners with their cilantro-spiced fare. In resisting the sudden and growing influence of Latino culture, some...

Ruth Bick, a 63-year-old Ogden resident, said Utahns should not have to pay taxes to subsidize a college education for undocumented students.

    May 3, 2006 -- WASHINGTON - Congress was abuzz yesterday over a shocking investigation of lawmakers that involves a top spy, limos, and hookers. Federal prosecutors are investigating whether contractors provided rogue former Rep. Randall "Duke" Cunningham with prostitutes as part of a bribery scandal that landed the lawmaker in the slammer. At issue is whether two government contractors gave Cunningham free limousine service and lined up hookers for sex trysts in Washington's Watergate Hotel. "The guy's certainly a scumbag - this is just more proof of that," said one House Republican aide. The brewing scandal took a new turn...

    Organizers declared "The Proclamation for Responsible Immigration Reform" to chants of "Si, se puede" (Yes it can be done), a statement made famous by workers rights icon Cesar Chavez. The proclamation was read in Philadelphia's historic old city, site of Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and Declaration of Independence and considered the birthplace of liberty in this country. The proclamation reads, "Whereas the first Americans declared that 'all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness'… we assert our right to be...

    Does a focus on family values demand a tight border to protect Americans from outsiders, or an open-door policy to ensure opportunity to the poor of other nations? It is more important to welcome the stranger or to respect the rule of law? At a forum Thursday hosted by the conservative Christian group Family Research Council, conservative and liberal religious leaders lobbed Bible verses, unable to agree on what Jesus would do about the nation's nearly 12 million illegal immigrants. Immigrant advocates warned that a crackdown would harm families and violate Scripture. And a lawmaker leading the charge for tougher...

    It's time to play hard ball. Our lawmakers seem to have forgotten that there are real consequences for ignoring lawbreaking. Lawmakers will get this done or taxpayers will know the reason why. The rule of law demands serious consequences for ignoring lawbreaking. Now is the time for law-abiding citizenry of America notify the US Dept of Justice, that many of our "so-called lawmakers"---who are under oath---are ignoring our laws, and are aiding and abetting the illegal activities of aliens on US soil. Disregarding the committing of crimes is a crime in itself. PARTIAL LIST OF IMMIGRANTS' FEDERAL CRIMINAL FELONIES...

    WASHINGTON: The trial of Rehana Khan, a Muslim girl of Pakistani-descent from Illinois who had her headscarf or hijab ripped off after she and several others were arrested for civil disobedience while protesting at a rally for immigrant rights last year, has finally been scheduled for April 25. A group of five young people - white, Latino, Muslim - are facing up to four years in jail for a protest against the racist vigilante group the Minutemen. Two Illinois state attorneys have reportedly refused to discuss a plea without jail time. Their case goes to trial on April 25, according...

    Sonny Bono, in the fight over Proposition 187 (the 1994 initiative that would have rescinded welfare benefits for illegal aliens) had the best line about the debate over illegal immigration. Many charges were tossed back and forth about the initiative and the motivation of its sponsors. The response of the future Congressman to those charges was always: “What is it about illegal that they don’t understand?” Exactly! Like many others, I watched television as the protestors waved their Mexican flags, then changed those flags to American flags, then yelled “Si Se Puede,” then yelled “Yes, We Can,” then demanded the...

    Inland area Roman Catholic priests and churches will continue to serve undocumented immigrants even if federal laws require them to review a migrant's legal status before giving aid, Bishop Gerald Barnes said Monday. "I don't think we have a choice," said Barnes, leader of the million-member Inland diocese encompassing Riverside and San Bernardino counties. "What the gospel calls us to do is what we are going to have to do. And it calls us to be compassionate and to help those who are in the most need." Rancorous debate between federal lawmakers over immigration has spilled onto the streets in...

    Surrounded by supporters and buoyed with their blessings, a Catholic nun today reported to prison for trespassing on government property. Sister Mary Dennis Lentsch will serve six months at a Lexington, Ky., federal prison for civil disobedience. Before leaving in a car caravan, about 20 supporters surrounded Lentsch in front of the John J. Duncan Federal Building downtown to sing songs and pray for her. Lentsch was sentenced for a November 2005 incident when she and other protesters entered the grounds of Fort Benning, Ga., which houses a school that has been blamed for human rights abuses in Latin...

    Immigration Reform and the American Church By Wiley Drake There's a great deal of talk in the media about President Bush's plans to reform our immigration policies, and for good reason. Any time that millions of people converge on America's largest cities to march through the streets and boycott, the public eye turns to watch. The right to vote, to hold jobs without fear, and to live peaceably in the world's freest nation is what mobilizes them, and their voices are growing louder with each passing day. The fact is simple. America must address the problems on our borders before...
