    Besides the recommendations in the NAFBPO report Congress should implement the following provisions to address the impacts of guest worker programs to unemployed Americans and “level the playing field” between American workers and foreigners: Require an employer to demonstrate there is no qualified American citizen for a job before recruiting for or hiring a foreign worker. Require all employers to use E-verify to document legal employment status (work visa, permanent resident status, citizenship). Require the employer to pay state minimum wage and implement a means for verifying that this wage is being paid. Require the employer to write a letter...

    Numbers USA/NAFBPO ^ | Feb. 4, 2013 | NAFBPO Press Release
    NAFBPO rejects the President's proposal out of hand. It is unacceptable in that it contains not so much as a nod to immigration enforcement or a secure border. It is predicated upon administration claims that the border is secure now, or at least, secure enough. That claim is at best wishful thinking but is more likely willful misdirection of the public's opinion of the situation. A study of Border Patrol operations by the Government Accountability Office indicates that the Border Patrol is about 60% effective, a deplorable figure even if accurate. NAFBPO members maintain contacts with many field officers and...

    Calexico, California -- Border Patrol agents are attacked while trying to make an arrest near the Calexico Station. According to the Border Patrol, 2 agents were in the process of arresting 3 suspected illegals near the border fence. During the arrests, 2 other men standing on top of the fence on the Mexican side started throwing large rocks at the agents. A third agent was able to maneuver his vehicle to provide some cover, but the men continued to throw rocks, seriously damaging the vehicle. None of the agents were hurt, but the rock throwers escaped back into Mexico.

    In recent months, labor organizations representing federal immigration agents have been among the most outspoken challengers of Obama’s enforcement campaign. In June, the American Federation of Government Employees’ National Council 118, which represents Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents, issued a no-confidence vote for ICE Director John Morton, claiming he is promoting amnesty instead of enforcement because most ICE officers are unable to make immigration-related arrests on the streets, leading to “amnesty by policy.” The National Border Patrol Council adopted a similar no-confidence resolution targeting Border Patrol Chief David Aguilar.

    As it poises for further immigration initiatives, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is struggling with festering internal divisions between political appointees and career officials over how to enforce laws and handle detainees facing deportation. Under the Obama administration, the Department of Homeland Security has shifted its focus away from the worksite raids and sweeps employed during George W. Bush's presidency to deporting more criminals and creating less prisonlike detention settings. But ICE, a branch of DHS, is facing intensified resistance from agency middle managers and attorneys, and the union that represents immigration officers. The internal conflict has grown increasingly public...

    The media is barely covering the bloody situation in Mexico, but the war against the drug lords there should be of the utmost concern to Americans. As high levels of violence and corruption continue to plague Mexican society, the U.S. needs to brace for a flood of narcotics, arms, and people seeking refuge crossing the border.

Her nomination fell apart when it was discovered that she had long employed an illegal alien as a housekeeper. In her ensuing unofficial role, she...

    Migratory wave harms US but benefits Mexico, according to expert The mass immigration of workers from Latin America to the US (disregarding legal status) in the past 40 years harmed the US economy while benefitting Mexico and other Latin American countries, according to Philip Cafaro, a professor at the state university of Colorado.
