    This is the land of opportunity, and anyone who wants the come here can…legally. That’s not the issue. For the Trump White House, it’s been their stated position to shift our immigration policy toward allowing more high-skilled workers into this country.  As for the families of the low-skilled working immigration population in the country, 51 percent (76 percent counting immigrant-led households with children) are collecting some sort of check from our welfare services. Is that good? No. Does that mean we shut it all down? No. That figure comes from the Center for Immigration Studies, who noted the need for...
  • Albright Says "Plenty of Room" for Illegal Immigrants [semi-satire]

    Former secretary of state Madeline Albright castigated the Trump Administration's opposition to unconstrained illegal immigration, calling it "undemocratic and essentially similar to what a fascist would do. Treating people differently because of their race or ethnicity is something that Hitler did. If a German like Chancellor Merkel realizes it's wrong to exclude Africans and Asians, then why can't Trump realize it's wrong to exclude Mexicans?" "It's not as if we don't have room for immigrants in America," Albright observed. "Homes in America are much bigger than they were a generation ago. Almost every family has underutilized space—a spare bedroom, a...

    Even though the Fourth of July is seen as a holiday of unity for all Americans, there were still some in the political world who chose to use the holiday to send a partisan message. In particular, Democratic Senator and potential 2020 candidate Kamala Harris tweeted odd political commentary on Wednesday’s holiday, erroneously claiming that “eight immigrants” signed the Declaration of Independence. ....The point is also strange because America was not an independent nation at the time and therefore had no immigration laws of its own yet. It is safe to say the internet reacted badly to the Democrat Senator’s...
  • Poll: Liberals Hold Extreme Views On ‘Abolish ICE’

    A Rasmussen poll shows that 36 percent of Democrats and 45 percent of liberals want to abolish the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, according to a Rasmussen poll. Fifty-two percent of Democrats and 65 percent of liberals also say “the government is too aggressive … in deporting those who are in this country illegally,” according to the poll. That response is a big problem for Democratic politicians because the anti-ICE views are a huge outlier among voters, yet are thrilling the Democrats’ base in the primary elections. In a June 26 primary in New York, for example, Democratic leader...

    This Fourth of July, nearly 14,000 immigrants become America’s newest citizens, swearing the oath of allegiance at 27 naturalization ceremonies across the nation that coincide with the country’s 242nd birthday and the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776. “When oath ceremonies are tied to the Fourth of July, it’s a message that immigrants believe in this country. It’s a beautiful and emotional thing,” Joshua Hoyt, executive director of the National Partnership for New Americans, said. “United nations, from Albania to Yemen, are represented in the ceremonies.” Hoyt added that NPNA believes “naturalization is good for the immigrants, their...

    ...says she's in Texas with her mother The father of the little girl on the US-Mexico border, whose distraught face came to symbolise the plight of families separated by the Trump administration, has said that his daughter and wife are together, and doing well. Denis Javier Varela Hernandez, 32, said that his two-year-old daughter Yanela was with his wife Sandra in a shelter. Mr Varela Hernandez, a ship’s captain from Puerto Cortes, Honduras, said he had not spoken to them, but was informed on Wednesday that they were in custody in Texas. “My heart broke because it's my little girl,”...

    Nearly 500 migrant children of the more than 2,000 who were separated from their parents at the U.S.–Mexico border have been reunited since May, a senior Trump administration official told the Associated Press. The official told the news agency that those children were separated from their families because of President Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy. The measure, which was first announced in April, seeks to aggressively prosecute any adult crossing the southern border illegally. The policy drew widespread, bipartisan condemnation for resulting in the separation of thousands of migrant children from their parents. Upon announcing the Trump administration policy, Attorney General...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio (D) said on Wednesday that some of the 239 migrant children that were separated from their families and sent to his city have bed bugs and lice. De Blasio said he just learned that the children were sent to Cayuga Centers in Harlem, which is contracted by the federal government to help undocumented minors. "How is it possible that none of us knew there were 239 kids right here in our own city?" de Blasio asked, according to a CNN report. "How is the federal government holding back that information from the people...

    American Airlines asked the federal government on Wednesday to stop using its commercial planes for “transporting children who have been separated from their families due to the current immigration policy.” The announcement, which was posted on American’s website, is the latest fallout from the Trump administration’s decision to separate parents who have arrived at the southern border illegally from their children. Several flight attendants for American, the world’s largest airline, have posted testimony on public and private social media channels in recent days, describing how they have seen groups of unaccompanied Latino children on domestic flights, accompanied not by parents...

    MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow broke down in tears on-air over a report about the Trump administration operating “tender age” shelters for migrant babies and toddlers. Maddow choked up while reading the first lines of the Associated Press report on the three facilities where children under the age of 13 are being sent after being separated from their parents at the border. She was unable to read the description of the shelters, first asking a producer to display a graphic and then deciding to abruptly end her segment. “I think I’m going to have to hand this off, sorry,” the MSNBC host...

    At least five people died on Sunday in South Texas after an S.U.V. carrying a dozen unauthorized immigrants crashed while trying to speed away from Border Patrol agents and local officials, the authorities said. Several others were injured when they were ejected from the S.U.V., which was speeding about 100 miles per hour when it rolled over, the authorities said. The crash happened in Dimmit County, about 125 miles southwest of San Antonio. Marion Boyd, the Dimmit County sheriff, said two United States citizens — the driver and one passenger — were trying to smuggle 12 unauthorized immigrants. He said...

    Slovenia was a key transit point during the European refugee crisis with about half a million passing through in 2015.The SDS party of veteran right-wing leader Janez Jansa is leading in Slovenia's parliamentary election, according to an exit poll published after voting ended on Sunday. The exit poll for public television gave Jansa's SDS 24.4 percent with the "anti-system" party of comedian-turned-politician Marjan Sarec coming second on 12.6 percent. If confirmed in official results, the results mean a coalition government likely will have to be formed. Preliminary results will be issued by the State Election Commission later on Sunday. Jansa...

    Democrats have yet to reach a consensus on what message might resonate most favorably with voters this Fall. Citing a poll finding that 60% of voters don't believe the Mueller probe has uncovered any crimes, Democratic strategist Jesse Ferguson suggested that "we need to focus our message on the successes of the investigation. Granted, there hasn't yet been any evidence of Russian collusion, but several people have been indicted for other crimes." Almost all of these "other crimes" involve lying to federal agents. The one seemingly significant crime not in this category is the charge that Paul Manafort engaged in...
