    <p>“I do not believe that the people of the United States are going to take people who’ve been here for a quarter of a century … [and] separate them from their families and expel them,” Gingrich said during a discussion about illegal immigration and border security. “I do believe we should control the border. I do believe we should have very severe penalties.”</p>

Robert Menendez (N.J.), the chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC), lambasted Angle's new ad, "The Wave," which targets Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on illegal immigration.

    The wife of a man allegedly killed by pirates on a lake that straddles the U.S.-Mexico border will return to FBI offices today to resume a marathon session of questions from Mexican authorities. Tiffany Hartley, wife of David Hartley, who is missing after the jet ski incident Sept. 30 on Falcon Lake, endured eight hours of questioning by Mexican investigators Friday. She has said she refused a request to come to Mexico for further questioning, out of fear of a possible arrest. "I just don't think that's a wise decision," Hartley told "Good Morning America." "I think they do believe...

    BROWNSVILLE — A global intelligence company Wednesday said the death of U.S. citizen David Michael Hartley on Falcon Lake was a case of mistaken identity in a turf war between rival drug cartels. Hartley, who was shot during a Sept. 30 sightseeing trip to the Mexican side of the binational reservoir, was shot by Zeta cartel enforcers because he was mistaken for a spy of the rival Gulf Cartel, according to the report by STRATFOR, and Austin-based think tank specializing in intelligence and international issues. The report goes on to say Hartley's body likely was destroyed as Los Zetas went...

    A witness and blood evidence seem to corroborate Tiffany Hartley's story. But competing interests are driving competing views of what really happened on Falcon Lake. Over the past couple of days there have been several developments in the alleged Falcon Lake piracy attack and murder. First,  Zapata County Sheriff Sigifredo Gonzalez says that he has a witness who corroborates Tiffany Hartley’s story.  That witness, whose identity is being concealed out of safety concerns, claims that when Hartley came off the lake on her jet ski, she was being chased by men in a boat and that she was sobbing and...

    The second largest city in the United States played host on Saturday to the second largest ‘One Nation Coming Together' rally. Attendance at the event was buoyed by the well publicized presence of leftist actor Danny Glover and Congresswoman Maxine Waters. Covering the event for Firedoglake , David Dayen estimated the crowd which gathered at L.A. City College at around 1,500. Parking does not seem to have been a problem. Dayen reports that the "labor-heavy crowd" included representatives from the SEIU, AFSCME, UAW and numerous other unions. Also in attendance were representatives of Organizing for America, Alliance of Californians...

    U.S. Sen. John McCain launched a 60-second, Spanish-language radio ad Friday, saying he’s working against higher taxes, to help rebuild the economy and protecting Arizona’s military bases.

    WASHINGTON – Taking his blowhard comedy act to Congress, Stephen Colbert told lawmakers that a day picking beans alongside illegal immigrants convinced him that farm work is "really, really hard." "It turns out — and I did not know this — most soil is at ground level," Colbert testified Friday. Also, "It was hotter than I like to be." Still, Colbert expressed befuddlement that more Americans aren't clamoring to "begin an exciting career" in the fields and instead are leaving the low-paid work to illegal immigrants. Staying in character as a Comedy Central news commentator, Colbert offered a House hearing...
  • Need your help to make Stephen Colbert, Rep. Lofgren look bad (immigration)

    Stephen Colbert has been pitching amnesty and illegal immigration lately, and on Friday he'll be on Capitol Hill (link) (presumably) promoting the AgJobs amnesty and the UFW's TakeOurJobs. The UFW promotes his appearance here. If I can get some help, we might be able to make both Colbert and Rep. Zoe Lofgren (a former immigration lawyer) look bad. Why is this important? Because Colbert has a megaphone, and he and Stewart are trusted by large numbers of people. And, most of those people aren't familiar with the details of immigration matters. This is also an example of very strong illegal...

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell says illegal immigrants do essential work in the U.S. and he has firsthand knowledge of that — because they fix his house. Powell, a moderate Republican, urged his party Sunday to support immigration generally because it is "what's keeping this country's lifeblood moving forward." In an interview with NBC's "Meet the Press," he said a path to legal status should be offered to illegal immigrants because they "are doing things we need done in this country."

    SALT LAKE CITY -- In the debate over immigration reform, you may have heard the term "anchor babies." It's used to reference a child born in the United States to parents with illegal status in an effort to gain them citizenship. But does it work? For one such family, staying in the United States could literally mean life or death for their young son. Francisco Javier Espinoza and his wife, Claudia, came to the United States to build a new life. Francisco worked as a framer. "For work, it's a better life here for my family," Espinoza said.

    I live in San Francisco, and I think you all know what that implies. I am a dyed-in-the-wool liberal and nearly everyone I interact with daily is as well. I read Free Republic most days to try to understand why Obamacare is so hated, and why the Ground Zero Mosque is taking such flak. And to be honest, I understand most of the viewpoints here. I don't agree, but I understand. The only one I don't understand is the very, very strong opposition to illegal immigration. Is it strictly a legal opposition? Workers that flaunt our laws at the border...
