    House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has hired Rebecca Tallent to work on immigration reform. She is currently the immigration policy director at the Bipartisan Policy Center. "The Speaker remains hopeful that we can enact step-by-step, common-sense immigration reforms -- the kind of reforms the American people understand and support," said Michael Steel, a spokesman for Boehner. "Becky Tallent, a well-known expert in this field of public policy, is a great addition to our team and that effort." According to her BPC bio, Tallent has worked as a policy aide on immigration and energy issues to Rep. Jim Kolbe (R-AZ) and...
  • Obama, McCain to huddle on immigration strategy and other issues

    The Hill ^ | November 7, 2013 | Alexander Bolton with Justin Sink
    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) will meet with President Obama at the White House Thursday afternoon to plot strategy for passing comprehensive immigration reform. McCain said Obama requested the meeting, which comes at a time political momentum for immigration reform is flagging. McCain and Obama need to shore up the support of wavering allies such as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who has backed off the push to overhaul the nation's immigration laws in a 1,200-page comprehensive bill. Rubio has said the Senate should not try to merge its comprehensive bill with a piecemeal measure coming out of the House. McCain's ally,...
  • McCain: We'll Try to Pass Immigration Changes After GOP Primaries (GET THEM!")

    Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) gave the clearest indication that proponents of comprehensive immigration reform may make their final--and strongest--push to get legislation passed next year after House Republicans make it through their primaries. “I think conventional wisdom is that time is not on our side,” McCain told reporters on Monday after an event in Chicago. “But there are a number of members of Congress who have primaries and when those primaries are done, they may be more inclined to address the issue of comprehensive immigration reform.” President Barack Obama has urged Congress to pass immigration reform legislation this year. House...

  • McCain to Newsmax: Americans 'Overwhelmingly' Want Immigration Reform

    NewsMax ^ | 07/22/2013 | Jim Myers
    Sen. John McCain tells Newsmax that the American people "overwhelmingly" want the Senate and House to come to an agreement on immigration reform. The Arizona Republican and 2008 presidential candidate also says he will do "everything in my power" to see that Obamacare is repealed but warns that shutting down the government is not the way to go about doing that. House Speaker John Boehner has reiterated that he would not allow a vote on the bipartisan immigration reform bill passed by the Senate, which McCain championed, because he says it is too massive and not strong enough on border...
  • VIDEO – Border State Senator John McCain Slips Up; Admits to Amnesty

    As a long time Senator from the border state of Arizona, John McCain knows all too well the immense negative ramifications that illegal immigration has had on his state. Still, today, as the Senate held discussions on the controversial ‘Gang of Eight’ immigration bill, one that both he and his fellow Arizona Senator Jeff Flake support and developed, McCain accidentally let the cat out of the bag. Though he meant to say “the rest of this legislation”, he clearly stated “path to citizenship” before realizing he revealed a truth that he meant to hide. Watch. (VIDEO-AT-LINK)

    The Obama administration on Tuesday announced a new "public advocate" charged with listening to immigrants' concerns about its law enforcement policies — but Republicans said the position amounts to an official mouthpiece for illegal immigrants being deported.
  • Sarah Palin Offers Generalities, Not Solutions, on Illegal Immigration

    Poor Sarah Palin is not only getting roughed up regularly by the liberal mainstream press. Last Friday on the “O’Reilly Factor,” Bill O’Reilly gave her a hard time during a discussion on illegal immigration for being too general. O’Reilly asked Palin what she would do about the immigration mess if she were in the Oval Office, a reasonable question considering her possible run for president in 2012. She replied in general terms that she would put as many troops as it would take on the border: This is a top priority and a national security issue so I’d do whatever...

    Arizona business and political backers of a guest worker program for immigrants wishing to work in the U.S. are getting some top-level backing. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is teaming with top labor unions, other business interests and the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops in support of a guest worker program and legal way for undocumented workers already in the U.S. to stay in the country. Arizona Sen. John McCain and Congressmen Jeff Flake and Jim Kolbe, as well as the Arizona Chamber of Commerce & Industry, are top pushers of a controversial guest worker program. Joining the U.S. Chamber...
