    Lobbyists on both sides of the aisle may not agree more on an issue than the need for amnesty legislation. But Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) told La Raza's annual conference that they should "get louder" to fight "lobbyists" to get amnesty legislation. Claiming that comprehensive amnesty legislation would also "stabilize" America's Social Security system, Warren told the crowd in Los Angeles on Sunday evening that they needed to "get louder together" pushing for amnesty, because "it is the responsibility of Americans to push on this." "Be stronger than the lobbyists," she declared. "We have to do this." Though Warren has...

Rick Perry. Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard, D-Calif., told the Post that while Democrats were aware of the urgent problem, they feared that speaking out about the problem too much would make it too politically difficult for Congress to pass an immigration overhaul. "That was always a concern of mine: How to address the issue in a way that did not detract from the need for comprehensive immigration reform,"...

Obama's continuing lawlessness is totally out of control and is now threatening our very existence as a free Republic. Not only is he not securing the border, he's doing the exact opposite.

    A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop...

Laying the blame for the humanitarian crisis squarely on President Obama, Cruz said, "I agree with the president in one respect. We are seeing a humanitarian crisis.

  • What True Immigration Reform Looks Like: End Family Chain Migration

    Right Side News ^ | April 14, 2014 | Adrienne Royer
    What is “chain migration”? Chain migration allows one immigrant to sponsor several relatives for admission. Five years after being admitted as a legal permanent resident, that individual only needs to seek naturalization and demonstrate an income level 25% higher than the poverty level to begin sponsoring other relatives who then sponsor other relatives and perpetuate this cycle. In 1965, the Immigration and Naturalization Act was amended to expand the definition of “immediate relatives” to emphasize the reunification of extended family members. Previously, U.S. laws limited this category to the spouses and children under 18 of U.S. citizens and legal immigrants....

    Q: Did the Obama administration advertise in January to transport 65,000 foreign children apprehended at the border? Did it expect a surge of illegal immigration? A: Yes. There’s been a sharp increase in unaccompanied children from Central America since FY 2012, and the U.S. projected a bigger increase this year. --snip-- It remains to be seen if the 65,000 figure cited in the January RFI for “escort services” proves to be an accurate projection. But certainly the administration anticipated a surge of unaccompanied children at the border.

In fact, the administration may even send Mexico foreign aid to help the country implement its "southern border initiative" with Guatemala. At a Thursday Senate hearing on the unaccompanied children who are flooding across the border, Ambassador Thomas A. Shannon, the Counselor of the Department of State, told senators that Mexico's "Southern border strategy" with Guatemala "was a welcome step towards improving Mexico’s ability to exercise greater control along...

    It is a grave error to view the swarming of illegal aliens across our southern border as anything other than a challenge to our sovereignty — a challenge abetted, rather than repulsed, by a president who vows to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” The challenge brings into sharp relief a question I’ve repeatedly pressed (see, e.g., here, here, here, and here): If the states cannot or will not defend themselves, are they still, in any real sense, sovereign? As expected, the president’s mainstream-media allies portray Obama as a man struggling to manage a crisis beyond his control, a...

This has created a “severe and dangerous” crisis, says the Georgia lawmaker, Phil Gingrey. Most of the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) are coming from Central America and they’re importing infectious diseases considered to be largely eradicated in this country. Additionally, many of the migrants lack basic vaccinations such as...

It's a sentiment shared by BCFS -- the Texas-based agency formerly known as Baptist Child & Family Services contracted to run camps at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio and Fort Sill in Oklahoma.

    Remember how President Obama’s early efforts to spin away the border disaster his policies created included frequent promises to begin shipping the “refugees” back to their countries of origin as quickly as possible? Never mind. That talking point is no longer operative, probably because it was put-up-or-shut-up time, and there’s no way Obama would short-circuit his deliberately created open-borders machine when it’s so close to achieving its objectives. Also, at this point the immigration wave is a done deal – a vast network of taxpayer-funded planes and buses is distributing the new “undocumented Americans” across the country, making deportation effectively...

Illegal immigrants, possibly from Mexico, are a likely source. If infected mosquitoes begin...

More than 250 children are being apprehended every day along the southern border. Nearly two-thirds...

Though House Speaker John Boehner blasted the president for not working with Congress, House leaders have only themselves to blame for not putting a viable bill to an up-or-down vote. The bipartisan comprehensive bill the Senate approved in June 2013 would have reformed the broken system in an orderly way. It would have provided billions of dollars in additional border security, tools for attracting foreign labor to meet America's workforce needs and a lengthy path to citizenship to bring the 12...

    Todd Starnes By Todd Starnes Published July 01, 2014 FoxNews.com A government-contracted security force threatened to arrest doctors and nurses if they divulged any information about the contagion threat at a refugee camp housing illegal alien children at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas, sources say. In spite of the threat, several former camp workers broke their confidentiality agreements and shared exclusive details with me about the dangerous conditions at the camp. They said taxpayers deserve to know about the contagious diseases and the risks the children pose to Americans. I have agreed to not to disclose their...

    Firebrand Republican Rep. Steve King announced his intention Friday to file a lawsuit against President Barack Obama, calling unconstitutional the administration's plan to stop deporting some young, illegal immigrants who entered the U.S. as children. "This is no longer a debate about immigration policy. The debate is now about the Constitution and the Rule of Law," the Iowa congressman said in a statement. "I am preparing to bring suit against the President and ask for a court to enjoin him from implementing his unconstitutional and unlawful policy."

    Birthdays are supposed to be times for celebration and gift-giving. But America's upcoming birthday on the Fourth of July is a time when the gift most needed is an urgent warning about the dangers of losing the things that have made this country America — and have long made "America" a ringing word of freedom, not only in this country but to people around the world. All is not lost. But all could be lost — especially if too many of us take freedom for granted and focus our attention on other things, like electronic gadgets and the antics of...

    The flood of illegals crossing over the border into the U.S. is an issue that’s become critical in recent days, largely due to the inactivity on the part of the White House to do anything about the situation. Many states, such as Texas, are sick of waiting on the president to take action, so they have created armed units to shut down the border without the help of the federal government.Ranchers have been getting attacked by illegals and border patrol units have been shot at by cartels and Mexican military choppers, yet Obama and his cronies have not lifted a...

    Saying he's grown frustrated with waiting for congressional Republicans, an angry President Barack Obama said Monday he will bypass Congress and act on his own to make changes to immigration policy by the end of the summer. Obama spoke Monday from the Rose Garden, where he slammed House Republicans for being too accommodating to the conservative, anti-immigration wing of their party and chided House leadership for not working to pass a "darn bill." "They're unwilling to stand up to the Tea Party and do what's right for the country. And what's worse — a bunch of them know better," Obama...
