    Dee Dee Garcia, president of Somos Republicans, told The Florida Independent her group does not support immigration-enforcement-only measures in Florida. The Florida Senate Judiciary committee will discuss the GOP’s immigration bill S.B. 2040 today. A Somos press release issued Friday states: SOMOS REPUBLICANS, the largest conservative Hispanic grassroots organization is a leader in advocating pro growth, pro business and pro immigrant ideas. We are not in support of SB 2040, an E-Verificiation Bill which is supported by Florida State Senator Anitere Flores. # We believe that small businesses are the economic engine of the United States, therefore, state lawmakers should...

    That's the consensus among America's law enforcement, but it isn't an easy policy for Jim Batton to accept. His son's girlfriend, Amanda Gschwendner, is still recovering in a wheelchair after a violent wreck Dec. 25 on Hitchcock Parkway in Aiken. The driver of the vehicle responsible was an illegal immigrant, who was charged but not arrested before Aiken Public Safety officers sent him to Medical College of Georgia Hospital for treatment. The driver was released from the hospital and has since absconded, leaving Batton and Gschwendner outraged and pointing fingers at Aiken Public Safety. "There's just something really off about...

    A Caryville tree-trimming company is confessing it may have employed illegal immigrants, albeit unwittingly, in a bid to defeat a labor lawsuit by Hispanic workers. Baird Tree Company Inc., which contracts with KUB to provide tree-trimming services, is facing a lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court by 21 Hispanic laborers who allege the firm shorted them overtime pay. In response to the lawsuit, Baird is now contending the firm has since learned some of the suing workers may be illegal immigrants and, if so, should be barred from suing. 'The defendants believe that some of the plaintiffs are illegal residents...
  • Operation Buck Up redux: Stop the DREAM Act; Sessions’ last action alert

    Click here for your handy target phone list as we head toward the Saturday DREAM Act vote in the Senate. Operation Buck Up has to be in full effect this afternoon. The White House has enlisted left-wing open-borders religious leaders to lean on Senate Republicans who have supported DREAM in the past. Education Secretary Arne Duncan is also leading a last-ditch push to make illegal aliens’ education a priority while strapped institutions are turning law-abiding citizens and law-abiding immigrants away. Remember: This is a brazen “down payment” on a larger shamnesty. Remember: This is nothing more than a 2.1 million...

    President Barack Obama hopes to rally new momentum behind the push for an immigration overhaul by explaining why he thinks a comprehensive approach is the only way to fix what he and others say is a system badly in need of repair. Obama was laying out his rationale in a speech Thursday, his first as president on the issue. Obama wasn't expected to announce any new proposals or policy changes. But feeling pressure from a range of supporters, he was aiming to jump-start the effort he had promised to make a priority in his first year and which advocates had...
