    Hispanic activists have two words for Donald Trump — thank you. “I think the greatest thing to ever happen to the Hispanic electorate is a gentleman named Donald Trump, he has crystalized the angst and anger of the Hispanic community,” U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President & CEO Javier Palomarez told POLITICO in an interview. “I think that we can all rest assured that Hispanics can turn out in record numbers.” Trump has rankled the Hispanic community from Day One of his presidential run when he called many illegal Mexican immigrants “rapists” and drug peddlers during his rambling announcement speech...

    “I don’t see any need for Congress to confirm somebody to be the chief law enforcement officer of this nation who is at that table insisting that she intends to execute a policy that is contrary to law and to what Congress desires and what the American people desire. And says that someone here unlawfully is as much entitled to a job in this as somebody who is here lawfully. It is just beyond my comprehension,” Sessions said.

  • Obama’s Unilateral Amnesty Really Will Be Unprecedented – and Unconstitutional

    Daily Signal ^ | 11/19/14 | Hans von Spakovsky, John G. Malcolm
    According to the Associated Press, as well as House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Reps. Luis Gutierrez, D-Ill., and Zoe Lofgren, D-Calif., President Barack Obama’s plan to provide executive amnesty to more than five million illegal immigrants is no different than unilateral actions that were taken by Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. However, this claim plays a bit fast-and-loose with history and fails to explain the significant difference between Obama going against the will of Congress, which considered and rejected the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act on several occasions, including when both houses of...

    The most important issue is missing from debate over the coming Obama administration’s “Executive Amnesty for illegal immigrants.”If such an action is taken without even an attempt at impeachment, we will mark that day as the day the U.S. Constitution was murdered. Certainly some Constitutional forms will hold on another decade or two, but the relevance of Congress to federal policy making, Constitutional branch separation of powers generally, and ultimately the rule of law will be gone. Future generations of Americans will mark the Constitution as a dead letter from that day. Our American birth right to the rule of...

    So Jeb, the Jeb man, the Jeb Meister said that if Republicans take control of the Senate they should pass (Sh)amnesty. You know because it is an act of LOVE and all to trespass and waht not. But isn't this discriminatory? Not against Illegal Aiens, er, I mean Undocumented Immigrants, err... United States Citizens in "spirit"..... But isn't it Discriminatory against HATE? If Trespassing is an act of LOVE (as the Jebster sez) and it is legalized, then what about acts of HATE? We HAVE to be morally Reativistic here because the MEDIA DEMANDS us to be so, or they...

    Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) characterization of the U.S.-Mexico border as “secure” by telling his colleague to come take a look for himself. “President Obama and Harry Reid both engage debates divorced from the facts and divorced from the reality,” Cruz said on Fox News Sunday. “Harry Reid lives in the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C., and I’m sure from his perspective the border seems secure. I would invite Harry Reid to come with me down Texas and see the border.” “I’ll tell you who is holding these kids ransom,” Cruz continued, “Harry Reid...
  • McCain to Hispanic Chamber of Commerce: I'll Fight for Amnesty as Long as 'I'm Alive and Breathing'

    In remarks to the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) vowed to fight for amnesty as long as he is a breathing United States Senator. McCain, according to BuzzFeed, also said that if comprehensive immigration reform passes, he would "make sure it is forever called the Edward M. Kennedy immigration bill." McCain and the late Kennedy tried to pass the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill last decade, along with President George W. Bush. Conservatives halted the measure because it would have reduced the wages of American workers while not solving the illegal immigration problem. The high-tech lobby, the...

    Facebook’s billionaire founder Mark Zuckerberg has launched a series of new television ads pushing for Congress to pass amnesty now, Politico reports. The new ad quotes President Barack Obama, House Minority Whip Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), House Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-VA) and House Speaker John Boehner and strikes, as Politico’s Maggie Haberman wrote, a new “tone” for Zuckerberg. “The ads, obtained by Politico, mark a shift in course for the group,” Haberman wrote. “Its earlier ads — aired through FWD.us and its partisan-leaning affiliates — sought to persuade with a gentler tone, or by offering cover to Senate...
  • Top GOP donors tell party to legalize illegal immigrants

    07/30/2013 11:11:46 AM PDT · by markomalley · 140 replies
    Nearly a hundred top Republican officials sent a letter to the House GOP on Tuesday urging lawmakers to pass a bill that legalizes illegal immigrants, arguing that the current system is already allowing them to stay and so it makes sense to register them and bring them into the system. The donors, led by former Bush administration Cabinet officials Carlos Gutierrez and Spencer Abraham, also said that immigrants are potential Republican voters who can be won over — if the party can be seen as welcoming to immigrants. “Doing nothing is de facto amnesty. We need to take control of...

    John McCain may be the most treasonous man who ever lived. McCain must contend with Hitler, the Marquis de Sade, Benedict Arnold, and others to claim this crown. But John surpasses them all. [....] History’s great betrayer is Judas Iscariot, who betrayed the greatest man in history. McCain betrayed the greatest nation in history. Judas marked his target with a kiss. McCain forever kisses Mexicans’ posteriors. McCain will have to settle for second place as Judas Iscariot’s malevolent handmaiden. While one killed mankind’s hope for salvation the other is in the process of killing mankind’s hope for the future. Where...

    I just want to be clear about about the new front group for the Gang of Eight’s immigration proposal on the right, Americans for a Conservative Direction. The group, funded by Facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg, is perfectly entitled to set up this group. A good bit of the center-right coalition supports the issue. That’s not my problem My problem is that this is just another example of Republican consultants seemingly bleeding people dry for crappy work product. They call themselves Americans for a Conservative Direction, but one of their first ads is a poorly produced ad supporting Lindsey Graham, who...

    Jeb Bush says he’s not worried that his work toward comprehensive immigration reform and his ties to the GOP establishment will alienate conservatives and negatively impact a potential 2016 presidential campaign, referring to critics as “the chirpers.” -snip- It’s not the first time, of course, that a Republican establishment figure has coined a new nickname for the outspoken conservative wing of the party. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) a few months ago labeled Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) as “wacko birds.”

    Karl Rove's recollection of the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act ("Immigration Reform and the Hispanic Vote," op-ed, June 6) is, shall we say, highly selective. That law, he writes, "essentially told those here illegally that if they had arrived in the U.S. prior to 1982 and wanted to become citizens, simply raise your right hand." He asserts that the Gang of Eight bill is different because it "has plenty of penalties and hurdles for those here illegally who seek citizenship." Well, I was there in '86. I read that bill carefully. (We did that back then.) And I can...

    Powerline ^ | 6/11/2013 | John Hinderaker
    The Senate voted overwhelmingly today [6/11] to move debate forward on the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill. Only 15 Republicans voted No. Not all the Republicans who voted to move the bill forward today will necessarily vote for its passage, but it appears to be a foregone conclusion that the bill will indeed make it out of the Senate in more or less its current form. This is, I think, mystifying. I can understand why Democrats would vote for the bill: over the next ten years, it will result in somewhere between 30 million and 57 million new legal immigrants,...

    WASHINGTON—Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte says she will back the bipartisan overhaul of the nation's immigration system. The New Hampshire senator said Sunday the nation's immigration is broken and needs to be fixed. She says the Senate proposal secures the border and provides a "tough but fair" way for immigrants to earn citizenship. A bipartisan group of eight senators drafted the bill and then guided it through the Judiciary Committee to the full Senate. Despite widespread support, the bill's passage is by no means certain

    Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, whose immigration reform proposal would grant far-reaching powers to the Secretary of Homeland Security and other top administration officials, says he does not trust Washington DC to make critical decisions about the nation’s future. Rubio made the comment Wednesday during a debate on the budget and the debt limit. He opposes including an increase in the debt limit in the new budget and wants to make sure that no increase comes out of a House-Senate conference committee. The problem, Rubio said in an impassioned floor speech, is that there has been in the past a bipartisan...

    At the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Library, President Obama and former President Clinton took to the podium to praise Bush – and in the process, stump for their version of immigration reform. Trying to leverage Republicans into handing over their principles by suddenly singing odes to the president he labeled the root of all evil, President Obama gushed over Bush “reaching across the aisle to unlikely allies like Ted Kennedy” with regard to his immigration reform effort. He continued: “Seven years ago, President Bush restarted an important conversation by speaking with the American people about our history...

    Yesterday, Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., spokesman Alex Conant caused a bit of a stir when he argued against granting permanent legal residence to illegal immigrants by claiming, “We haven’t had a cohort of people living permanently in US without full rights of citizenship since slavery.” Leaving the merits of this argument aside for a second, it is important to recognize that this is a very common argument on the left. For example:
