  • Trump foes scrambling to derail 'cruel' rule requiring immigrants to show they aren't public burden

    The Trump administration is now on the clock to finalize one of the biggest changes to legal immigration policy in a generation, after the official comment period ended Monday on a plan to require immigrants to show they aren’t a public burden if they want to extend their visas or get on the path to citizenship. Immigrant rights groups and other Trump opponents mounted a feverish last-minute push to try to derail the proposal. They submitted tens of thousands of comments calling the plan misguided and racist and warned that it would keep needy immigrants from visiting doctors and leave...
  • Foreign-Born Population of the United States, Percent by State, as of 2010

    The foreign born population of the United States is at near record levels of over 14 percent, as of 2018. The last time this happened, the U.S. shut down immigration for 40 years and assimilated the immigrants. It is less clear that will happen this time. The big wave of immigration ending about 1920, was part of how Progressivism took over as the dominant ideology in the United States. The current wave of immigration, began in 1965, is part of how Progressivism is pushing out the remnants of Constitutional ideology today. President Donald Trump is part of a desperate...
  • Study: More than 7-in-10 California Immigrant Households Are on Welfare

    More than 7-in-10 households headed by immigrants in the state of California are on taxpayer-funded welfare, a new study reveals. The latest Census Bureau data analyzed by the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) finds that about 72 percent of households headed by noncitizens and immigrants use one or more forms of taxpayer-funded welfare programs in California — the number one immigrant-receiving state in the U.S. Meanwhile, only about 35 percent of households headed by native-born Americans use welfare in California.
  • 63% of Non-Citizen Households Access Welfare Programs

    12/03/2018 2:31:06 PM PST · by bitt · 34 replies ^ | 12/2/2018 | Steven A. Camarota
    New "public charge" rules issued by the Trump administration expand the list of programs that are considered welfare, receipt of which may prevent a prospective immigrant from receiving lawful permanent residence (a green card). Analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies of the Census Bureau's Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP) shows welfare use by households headed by non-citizens is very high. The desire to reduce these rates among future immigrants is the primary justification for the rule change. Immigrant advocacy groups are right to worry that the high welfare use of non-citizens may impact the ability of some...

    On Oct. 10, 2018, USCIS published its proposed rule, “Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds.” The public comment period is open for 60 days from Oct. 10, 2018, to Dec. 10, 2018. (Read our press release from Sep. 24 when the text of the proposed rule was posted on the DHS website.) The administration published a proposed rule that would make it much more difficult for immigrants to apply for legal immigration status in the United States. The proposed rule would drastically expand the definition of what it means to be a public charge, which could prevent an immigrant from maintaining...
  • In a blow to Trump’s immigration agenda, federal judge blocks asylum ban for migrants

    <p>A federal judge temporarily blocked the Trump administration from denying asylum to migrants who illegally cross into the United States, saying the policy likely violated federal law on asylum eligibility.</p> <p>The judge pointedly denied the claim that the president, by fiat, could give the manner of entry added legal weight as a determinant of asylum. He reasoned that the “interpretive guide” of United Nations compacts on asylum lent extra force to congressional requirements. The intent of Congress, Tigar wrote, was “unambiguous.”</p>

    A majority of Germans say the level of mass migration has left them feeling “like a stranger in their own country”, according to a new study. Presented as part of this year’s Leipzig University research into “authoritarian” attitudes in the country, the figure showed a rise of 12 points since the Competence Center for Right-Wing Extremism and Democracy Research tested Germans on the same questions in 2014, with 56 per cent of Germans expressing the sentiment in 2018. Other findings from the 328-page study, for which 2,416 Germans were interviewed between May and July this year, were that 44 per...

    On Saturday, September 22, 2018, while the world focused on the tragedy in Iran of the Ahvaz military parade attack carried out by ISIS, a mob of Somali Muslim men and boys rushed the entrance to Valleyfair, a family amusement park that had set aside the day to honor law enforcement in Minnesota. The mob overcame security, jumping fences avoiding metal detectors while bringing in weapons. It was a direct, premeditated attack on police and security. Backup had to be called in along with fire trucks, ambulances and even a police helicopter. This attack should be understood as a “dry...

    Congressional Districts with booming foreign-born populations sent some of the most far-left, socialist Democrats to Congress in the midterm elections this week. On Tuesday night, congressional districts that have been dramatically changed by mass immigration elected Democrats like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in New York, Ilhan Omar in Minnesota, and Ayanna Pressley in Massachusettes. The congressional districts sending some of the most liberal, far-left Democrats to Congress have large foreign-born populations that do not seem to be leveling off anytime soon as the U.S. continues admitting more than 1.5 million foreign nationals every year. Ocasio-Cortez’s district, New York’s 14th, has a foreign-born...

    The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff said Monday that U.S. military personnel will not interact with immigrants approaching the U.S. border after President Trump deployed thousands of troops to prepare for the caravan. "There is no plan for U.S. military forces to be involved in the actual mission of denying people entry to the United States," Gen. Joseph Dunford said, according to ABC News. "There is no plan for the soldiers to come in with immigrants or to reinforce the Department of Homeland Security as they are conducting their mission," he continued. "We are providing enabling capability." Military...

    New York Times best-selling author and populist conservative columnist Ann Coulter says the 14th Amendment is used to drive down the wages of black Americans by incentivizing illegal aliens to come to the United States in order to be rewarded with birthright citizenship for their U.S.-born children. During an interview with talk radio host Lars Larson, Coulter said the 14th Amendment was intended for black Americans but is now being used by the big business lobby to drive down black Americans’ wages by incentivizing illegal immigration. Coulter said: The 14th Amendment … was about freed slaves. They were part of...

    Alisyn Camerota has described one of President Trump's campaign messages as "vitriolic attacks on the media." Can you blame Trump for criticizing the media when, in the same breath, Camerota twice lumped the President with an accused mass murderer? On CNN this morning, Camerota said: "Midterms messaging, we'll start with, from the president. So he seems to be zeroing in on the two pillars of the media, continuing his vitriolic attacks against the media, and migrants, continuing to, in fact, ratchet up the language about them and frankly, I mean, I have to say it, using some of the same...

    Immigration Bringing More Leprosy to U.S."Leprosy, the disfiguring scourge of the skin most associated with exotic lands and Bible stories, is increasing because of immigration from Southeast Asia and Latin America." Question: which extreme right-wing news outlet published that defamatory, scare-mongering, headline and report? Infowars? Breitbart? Fox News, perhaps? Nope. It was . . . The New York Times. The article dates to 1983. But there have been more recent reports of the same problem, as here, here and here. In each article, it is mentioned that the great majority of leprosy cases in the U.S. are diagnosed among immigrants,...

    States, with members dropping out to return home, some opting to try their luck in Mexico and others demanding "safe and dignified transport," as the endless walking begins to take its toll. The first of the three caravans attempting the journey is still at least 1,000 miles from the U.S.-Mexico border. A Fox News crew traveling with the leading caravan Tuesday observed migrants lining a bridge outside of the town of Niltepec, hoping to get rides in a series of buses that were lined up. That caravan is estimated to contain 4,000 people -- but the number is slowly shrinking...

    "Der Spiegel" magazine reports that Angela Merkel is not running for re-election as leader of the Christian Democratic Union following yesterday's losses in the Hessian state election. The CDU will hold its conference in December where a leadership election is planned. There is a catch because she still wants to be Chancellor according to the German media. She has apparently not given up the fight against opponents, but is trying to find a way to stay in power. That is the sense of the situation for now. Her move today comes after yesterday's dramatic losses for both her own CDU...
  • SF spends $300,000 to register noncitizen voters — a whopping 49 sign up ( San Francisco )

    San Francisco’s effort to get noncitizen parents to the ballot box is pretty much a bust the first time out, with only 49 signing up to vote in the Nov. 6 election. Back in July, the city began registering noncitizens — including undocumented immigrants — to vote in school board elections. The program is the first-of-its-kind in California and followed passage of a 2016 San Francisco ballot measure opening school elections to noncitizens who are over the age of 18, city residents and have children under age 19. The city spent about $310,000 setting up the new registration system and...

    Janitor's view ^ | 10/28/18 | Reasonmclucus
    If President Donald Trump can't keep the caravan from entering the country, he should try to transport the participants to congressional districts whose voters elected a Democrat to Congress. Many Democrats want to encourage immigration so we should expect voters in those districts to welcome immigrants and be willing to share local resources including jobs with immigrants. Voters who don't want more immigrants in their districts shouldn't elect politicians who want to increase immigration.. Voters in higher income districts shouldn't vote to encourage immigration unless they are willing to have new immigrants for neighbors

    The report provided numerous examples of fraudsters exploiting the food stamp program to fund terrorist activities. A grocery store owner in Chicago was imprisoned in 2006 for stealing $1.4 million through food stamp fraud and aiding the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. In 2010, two Somali store owners in Michigan pleaded guilty to food stamp fraud and running an unlicensed money transfer business that sent money to “hot spots” in the Middle East and Africa. In Indianapolis, a ring of convenience stores bought food stamps from customers for 50 cents on the dollar. The ringleader was arrested on a return flight from...

    Referring to the hordes of immigrants marching toward the American border, a meme says the following: “Imagine if these people marched on their own government and demanded change instead of marching toward ours and demanding charity.” Is it fair to assume all immigrants want government handouts? Of course not. But one thing is sure: That’s the message our government sends them. “Come and get it!” For decades now, our government has done two things. One, we give handouts to everyone. More and more handouts all the time. Two, we indiscriminately let anyone and everyone into the country. If we didn’t...
