  • PERSPECTIVES ON IMMIGRATION: Cut Legal Admissions by Two-Thirds (Harry Reid op-ed, 1994)

    Los Angeles Times ^ | August 10, 1994 | U.S. Senator Harry Reid
    The federal government has been grossly irresponsible in its neglect of mounting immigration problems, even as these problems place unbearable burdens on states like California. It is regrettable that states have reached a point where the only avenue they have for justice is the courts. It is even more regrettable that this Administration and this Congress stand by and allow the federal courts to decide the nation's immigration policies. Taxpayers simply cannot continue to sustain new populations the size of San Diego or the state of Nevada every year. California is sending up the red flag tat Washington should heed.Unprecedented...
  • Dozens of House Republicans object to gay rights language in NAFTA replacement deal

    A group of 45 House Republican lawmakers wrote President Trump Friday stating that they were "deeply concerned" by the inclusion of "sexual orientation and and gender identity language" in the U.S.-Mexico-Canada-Agreement on trade. The representatives said the inclusion was "inappropriate and insulting to our national sovereignty" and urged Trump to remove the language. The letter suggests the president may loose some key Republican support when the deal, which would replace the North American Free Trade Agreement, comes before before Congress for approval next year. "A trade agreement is no place for the adoption of social policy," the GOP lawmakers wrote,...

    Full title.......................'It's a BIG CON': Trump says it's 'ironic' that members of the migrant caravan are waving flags of the 'dangerous' countries they are fleeing, while Tijuana's mayor says the influx of migrants could last SIX MONTHS......................Donald Trump claimed it was 'ironic' that migrants were waving the flags of the 'dangerous' countries they are fleeing from to seek asylum in the US. The President claimed the migrant caravan travelling from Central America to the US border in search of asylum is a 'BIG CON' which the American taxpayer is paying for.

    After a big public relations buildup about razor wire being installed at the border to keep illegal migrants out, caravan migrants are at it again, this time cutting the newly installed razor wire: Customs and Border Patrol has a video of the crime in San Diego. Here's video of another one at the the border in Arizona. Both happened on the exact same day, Nov. 14. Obviously, it's coordinated, and by a very canny organized group (cartels?) that wants to send a message to the U.S. that its border efforts are useless. Tactically, it's striking first and striking hard, right...

    A Republican congressional candidate from New Mexico is on the verge of being beaten by a Democratic opponent after she says thousands of ballots mysteriously appeared after the election. “Everybody goes to bed on Tuesday night thinking that I’ve been declared the winner, and then suddenly on Wednesday morning they start hearing that there were 8,000 ballots that came up out of nowhere,” Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-N.M.) said on Fox News Tuesday night.

    CBS ^ | November 14, 2018
    A New Mexico Republican who lost her bid for a U.S. House seat is seeking to impound absentee ballots in a key county that decided the race for the Democrat, according to court documents filed late Tuesday. In court documents filed in the 3rd Judicial District Court in southern New Mexico, Yvette Herrell asked a Dona Ana County judge to impound the absentee ballots so her campaign could inspect them. Herrell's lawyers cited "chain-of-custody issues and other improprieties" but didn't give details of allegations of irregularities. In addition, the court documents claim Herrell was declared the winner of New Mexico...

    Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) said “under no circumstances” should the so-called migrant caravan be allowed to cross into the United States. Partial transcript as follows: BRENNAN: You were very critical of the Obama administration for taking action via executive fiat as you said, you called it dangerous. This week President Trump on immigration has issued orders bypassing Congress to restrict how migrants crossing the border illegally can claim asylum. Are you OK with that now? CRUZ: Well I’m still studying this specific immigration order, but I’ll tell you look, here’s my view on executive...

    California is a place unlike any other on the Globe. It boasts perhaps the greatest natural resources of any state along with shining high-tech industries. However, like many good economic stories, government policies threaten its future. Indeed, its government has made California unsustainable. Of course, it wasn’t always this way. As the 1960s came to a close in California, it had a population of nearly twenty million. In the decade before, its economic strength afforded the construction of a vast State Water Project and higher education system that was the envy of the world. Matched with a majestic and trade...

    LAS CRUCES — Dońa Ana County elections officials resumed counting absentee ballots this morning, with the race for a hotly contested southern New Mexico-based congressional district seat hanging in the balance. Republican Yvette Herrell holds a lead of 1,972 votes over Democrat Xochitl Torres Small in the 2nd Congressional District with more than 186,000 votes cast in the race, based on partial, unofficial returns. At least 8,000 absentee ballots are not included in the final tally, according to Dońa Ana County Clerk Amanda Lopez Askin. In votes tallied so far, Torres Small has a decisive lead over Herrell in Dońa...

    We are told that Xochitl Torres Small is a traditional New Mexico Democrat like myself — one who loves hunting on our beautiful public lands.This wouldn’t be the first time that a campaign ad has tried to mislead us about a politician, of course, but it’s still insulting. Small is a lifelong liberal activist who has raised millions of dollars from out of state interests to brand herself as a moderate and win the race for New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District in November, but her political record is simply too blue to hide behind a quick coat of purple paint.

    The blue wave is now a bygone figment of a liberal Hollywood fantasy. Voter excitement is clearly with the Republican Party and President Donald Trump! There is a Red Wave Rising! One pundit, Michael E. Newton, has been tracking the 2018 mid-term election data to date. He addresses people’s questions about mid-term voting to date: Newton explains that because Democrat and Republican voting may have gotten closer each day, doesn’t mean that the Democrats are really catching up in early voting. It just means the Republican percent of gains over 2016 are not as great as they were yesterday: What...

    Michael Vickers, a veterinarian and rancher in Falfurrias, Texas, says he won’t let outside militia onto his property and he doesn’t think such groups will be trusted by most area landowners. Gun-carrying civilian groups and border vigilantes have heard a call to arms in President Trump’s warnings about threats to American security posed by caravans of Central American migrants moving through Mexico. They’re packing coolers and tents, oiling rifles and tuning up aerial drones, with plans to form caravans of their own and trail American troops to the border. “We’ll observe and report, and offer aid in any way...

    As election day nears, a new poll from Carroll Strategies shows Republican Yvette Herrell leading Democrat Xochitl Torres Small in New Mexico’s 2nd Congressional District race. The poll, which surveyed 1,200 likely New Mexico voters, revealed Herrell with a five-point lead over her challenger. Forty-seven percent of those polled said they will vote for Herrill, while 42 percent said they intend to vote for Small. Last week, Herrell joined SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight to discuss the migrant caravan headed towards the US-Mexico border. Herrell insists that the caravan is an “insult” to those who immigrated legally and puts “our sovereignty...

    Latinos and Hispanics, legally here in the U.S. are speaking out against the caravan heading north from Honduras to the U.S. That was the report from Univision, which is hardly a conservative news site. According to the Daily Caller, they're saying things like this: “How is it possible that a caravan from Central America is on it’s way to the U.S. and the people are speaking the way they’re speaking, demanding to get in. No sir, this isn’t their country and they need to respect it,” one man said. Another woman told Megid, “like the president says, they can...
