    Senate .gov ^ | April 17, 2013 | Marco Rubio
    On April 17, my colleagues and I introduced immigration legislation. It marked a first step toward achieving the strongest border security and enforcement measures in U.S. history, modernizing our legal immigration system to unleash strong economic growth and job creation, and dealing with our undocumented immigrant population in a tough, but fair way that is directly linked to achieving several security triggers. While I believe this legislation will accomplish these things, I am also confident that an open and transparent process – one that engages every senator and the American people – will make it even better. I believe this...

    The Boston Marathon bombings and their impact on immigration policy framed a discussion organized by Centro Presente Friday on police hostility, immigrant rights, and the necessity of grassroots and community organizing. An immigrant rights organization based in Somerville, Centro Presente held the community conversation in partnership with the National Alliance of Latin American and Caribbean Communities. NALACC is a Latino-led organization based in Chicago that works for betterment of the Latin American community in the U.S. and abroad. The event reflected the anxiety among some in immigrant communities that the Marathon bombings would lead to a backlash against immigrants and...

    National Review ^ | 4/19/2013
    The Gang of Eight’s “comprehensive” immigration-reform bill contains a number of superficially attractive security mandates: It would require the federal government to have 100 percent “situational awareness” of the border, to catch 90 percent of illegal border-crossers in high-traffic areas, to establish a tracking system to address the problem of those who enter the country illegally but overstay their visas, etc. So attractive are those goals that we have supported them in the past, on the many occasions upon which the government has promised to achieve them. Disappointingly, Washington keeps failing to deliver on its promises. The unspoken premise of...

    How many times have you heard someone — typically, an educator whose brain has been switched off for the moment — say, "Diversity is our strength!" It's not. Belatedly, perhaps too late, Europeans are starting to figure this out. It's not to late for America, however. Leaders of Europe's Big Three powers, the United Kingdom, Germany and France, all have risen up against the multicultural claptrap that is teaming up with a native birth dearth to destroy their culture. Most recently, British Prime Minister David Cameron said: "Under the doctrine of state multiculturalism, we have encouraged different cultures to live...

    Last week, Alexander Rivas, 18, was arrested by Alexandria police, following an investigation that began in November, when the father of a 14-year-old runaway told police his daughter was living with Rivas. Court documents state that the girl was found in the gang member’s apartment and she was being used as a prostitute. According to prosecutors, Rivas ran a prostitution ring, operating in Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, using underage runaways. The affidavit states that the business catered to “construction workers and illegal immigrants.” On a typical Friday or Saturday night, the operation would see about 100 customers...

    WASHINGTON – Conservatives spoke out Thursday in favor of stepping up border enforcement while criticizing so-called reform plans they dismiss as "amnesty" for illegal immigrants in speeches and panel discussions at the Conservative Political Action Conference. The Republican leadership in Washington isn't expected to raise immigration as a front-burner issue in the near term, they said, but conservatives are even more skeptical of any “immigration reform” proposals that might bubble up from the Obama administration or from bipartisan ranks. “Anybody that brings up amnesty in this Congress, we need to just take the scarlet 'A' for amnesty and pin it...

    The Obama administration knows that the American public is against the reforms that President Obama is proposing as they were against them when President George W. Bush proposed them, and the American public defeated two efforts by the Bush administration and Congress to implement those so-called reforms. Why is President Obama losing political popularity, and why is the Congress held in such low regard? The contempt of the public on this issue towards the efforts of both the President and the Congress to impose their will on an unwilling public has added strength to the coming November debacle for the...

    Many Mexican immigrants, legal or otherwise, see themselves as part of a process of retaking the United States that once was a part of Mexico. Recent Mexican law permits dual citizenship which tacitly supports this notion. This objective is aptly described by Jose Ramos, anchorman since 1986 on Noticieros, a Miami news program on Univision cable network, also seen in Mexico and 13 other Latin-American countries.

    The Department of Homeland Security on Friday denied any plans to grant blanket amnesty to the "entire illegal immigrant population," following claims from senators and others that the Obama administration has been holding behind-the-scenes talks to craft a gameplan for mass legalization. The concern is that DHS, in a bid to bypass Congress, would extend what is known as deferred action or parole -- actions usually taken on a case-by-case basis -- to millions of illegal immigrants at once. The department statement, however, did not address the possibility of giving a selective reprieve to the segment of the population holding...

Arizona’s new measure, which requires that the police check the documents of anyone they stop or detain whom they suspect of being in the country illegally, has forced politicians far and wide to take a stance. But unlike in Washington, where a general consensus exists among establishment Republicans, the fault lines in...

The poll of Hispanic, Asian-American, and African-American likely voters finds some support for legalization. But overall each of these groups prefers enforcement and for illegal immigrants to return home. Moreover, significant majorities of all three groups think that the current level of immigration is too high. These views are in sharp contrast to the leaders of most...

    February 23, 2010 (MMD Newswire) -- Americans for Legal Immigration Political Action Committee (ALIPAC) is endorsing JD Hayworth for U.S. Senate today in the hopes Hayworth can defeat John McCain, who is a notorious supporter of Amnesty for illegal aliens. John McCain refused to listen to over 80% of his constituents and the American public by co-sponsoring Amnesty legislation with Senator Kennedy in 2007 which would have turned millions of illegal aliens into US voters. McCain's Amnesty legislation failed after the Capitol Hill phone system collapsed under the pressure of angry calls ranging 50-100 to 1 against his bill. McCain...

    Communities beset by seemingly unbreakable cycles of violence; law enforcement overmatched to the point of essentially ceding sovereignty to an organized and heavily armed resistance; citizens so intimidated by thugs that they won’t report them to authorities, for fear of retribution. Eight years into the War on Terror, this scenario sounds familiar. But its location isn’t the Sunni Triangle in 2006 or southern Afghanistan today; it’s a farm town on California’s Central Coast. In Salinas—a predominantly Hispanic, blue-collar community best known for producing John Steinbeck—violence has spiraled out of control. With a population of under 150,000, the city’s homicide rate...

"Yes, we should deal with the backlog [of workers seeking citizenship]. I completely agree with that. But the family unification principles, which had been fundamental to American immigration, are disrupted by what is in there now.” Pelosi was referring to the point system in the Senate bill, which would grant those seeking citizenship...
