    The following chart and background have been provided to Breitbart News exclusively from the Senate Judiciary Committee’s subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest, which is chaired by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL). The chart shows that for every 1 net American born to today’s population—births minus deaths—the federal government will add 7 more people to the country through future immigration. The Senate Subcommittee told Breitbart News: October 3rd marked the 50th anniversary of the Immigration and Nationality Act. According to Pew Research, in the five decades since the Act’s adoption, 59 million immigrants have entered the United States. Pew further...

    Here’s some Sunday morning math from Politico Magazine to either amuse or enrage you. (Or possibly both?) The conclusion of this analysis is that Hillary Clinton – or whoever the Democrats wind up deciding on – could be elected by illegal immigrants. At first glance this sounds like a voter fraud story, but that would require one heck of a lot of illegally cast ballots. No… it’s something different and it once again brings us back to the arcane math behind the electoral college. You see, while the electors representing the two senators from each state are unaffected by...

    While Europe nations from the Balkans to Scandinavia are attempting to cope with at least hundreds of thousands of refugees already on the continent, the leaders of the three largest Christian Churches in all of Christendom, albeit to various degrees, are exhorting the faithful to assist the migrants. While the Pontiff of Rome, the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, and the Patriarch of Moscow and all Rus' have expressed varying degrees of support for the migrants, the pushback is coming from an unexpected source; the Christian laity. As reported by Ilgin Karlidag of the new media Turkish Weekly news portal on...

    Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder, a Republican, is upset about the number of immigrants in his state—in his estimation there are far too few of them. In contrast with Republican politicians who want to rein in president Obama’s executive actions on immigration, the governor asked the Obama Administration early last year to use its executive powers to designate 50,000 extra visas to the Detroit metro area for high-skilled immigrants. Citing population loss and the need to jumpstart the Motor City economically ....Snyder—a former CEO for Gateway Computer and head of a venture capitalist firm—called on his state to “embrace immigration.”

With Boehner resigning, calls have reemerged to vote on comprehensive immigration reform, but what has been McCarthy’s immigration record? First, in an email to colleagues, McCarthy, representing a congressional district where 35 percent of the population is Latino, announced his bid for the speakership. "We have made real progress towards shrinking an overgrown federal government and reforming our broken entitlement system," McCarthy wrote. "But our work is far from done. We...

    Breitbart ^ | 3 Oct 2015 | Paul Goldman and Mark J. Rozell
    Illegal immigrants—along with other noncitizens without the right to vote—may pick the 2016 presidential winner. Thanks to the unique math undergirding the Electoral College, the mere presence of 11-12 million illegal immigrants and other noncitizens here legally may enable them to swing the election from Republicans to Democrats. The right to vote is intended to be a singular privilege of citizenship. But the 1787 Constitutional Convention rejected allowing the people to directly elect their President. The delegates chose instead our Electoral College system, under which 538 electoral votes distributed amongst the states determine the presidential victor. The Electoral College awards...

    Donald Trump is an out of the box thinker. Here is an out of the box idea for him: personal, individual sponsorship of a section of the wall to be built on our southern border. Trump has called for a wall to be built along the entire roughly 2,000 miles of our border with Mexico. There are some 2 million feet in the 370 mile border between Mexico and Arizona; and most observers agree sealing this “hole” needs immediate attention. Using a wall to slow and eventually stop illegal aliens from invading our country is the most obvious response to...

    Texas civil rights groups, on behalf of nearly thirty undocumented Texans and their children, say the state has wrongly denied birth certificates to U.S.-born kids of immigrants. Now, they're taking their fight for documentation to federal court. Attorneys for the state of Texas argued in federal court in Austin on Friday that a lawsuit joined by dozens of undocumented Texans has nothing to do with their U.S.-born children being denied birth certificates by the state vital statistics unit. Instead, the attorneys claimed, the suit is a ruse to compel the state to accept Mexican consulate-issued identification. “This is more about...

President Eisenhower, however, deported a million alone in the space of a year, and with only 750 deportation agents, in an operation with a name we would never use today: Operation Wetback. Some 750 agents swept northward through agricultural areas with a goal of 1,000 apprehensions a day. By the end of July, over 50,000 aliens were caught...

The goal is to add several million new citizens to the voter rolls by November 2016. If you think the Naturalization process is governed by law and long-established rules so we need not worry about shortcuts and wholesale fraud – wake up. This is the Obama Administration we are talking about. If you think immigration law enforcement was politicized, wait until you see what citizenship...

    Congress allowed a fee intended to discourage outsourcing by companies that rely on H-1B visas to replace U.S. workers to expire Wednesday night. “Congress watched employers discriminate against Americans in hiring and firing, and then ship American jobs overseas. Congress promised to do something about these pernicious practices -- and it did. It made them cheaper,” IEEE-USA President Jim Jefferies said. The $2,000 outsourcing fee (along with a $2,150 fee on L-1 visas) applies only to firms with more than 50 percent of their workforce on H-1B or L-1 visas, a small percentage of tech employers, including the top outsourcing...

    He's not expecting a vote, though. Many undocumented immigrants who pay taxes would be able to access Obamacare under a long-shot bill introduced Wednesday by Rep. Luis Gutiérrez (D-Ill.). The Affordable Care Act currently limits access to its exchanges and subsidies to those "lawfully present." That means the approximately 11.3 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. are not eligible for Obamacare, nor can they shop on the exchanges if their employer does not provide them with coverage. Gutiérrez's bill would open the exchanges and extend the subsidies to undocumented immigrants who provide proof of state residency and tax filings. It...

The release says the shootings occurred after Cruz-Marin was removed from the United States in November 2009 and sent to El Salvador.

    Paris (AFP) - The far right in Europe is making capital from the hundreds of thousands of migrants pushing into the continent and hopes to turn fears it has helped to fuel of an "invasion" into electoral success. "Their attitude is basically that the people coming in are neither refugees nor migrants, but invaders," said Jean-Yves Camus, one of France's leading experts on the far right. The leader of France's National Front (FN), Marine Le Pen, claims that the migrants are "illegal immigrants who are over-demanding and arrogant" and that three-quarters are not refugees at all, but people who just...

    Asians will beat Hispanics to become America’s largest immigrant population by 2055, according to a Pew Research Center report released Monday. The study estimated the United States' immigrant population by 2065 and noted that the turning point comes in 2055 when 36 percent of the migrants will be from Asia. Migrants are estimated to account for 88 percent of the increase in the American population between 2015 and 2065, the report stated. Currently, 14 percent of the population comprises immigrants compared to 5 percent in 1965. "Without the immigrants, the U.S. population would start decreasing," said Pew demographer Jeff Passel,...

    In a major shift in immigration patterns over the next 50 years, Asians will have surged past Hispanics to become the largest group of immigrants heading to the United States, according to estimates in a new immigration study. The study looks in detail at what will happen by 2065, but the actual tipping point comes in 2055. An increase in Asian and Hispanic immigration also will drive U.S. population growth, with foreign-born residents expected to make up 18 percent of the country’s projected 441 million people in 50 years, the Pew Research Center said in a report being released Monday....

    So, Mr. Secretary Kerry, how many Syrian refugees can I put you down for? In case you missed it, earlier this week, Liveshot journeyed to Germany, which is near France. There he proclaimed that “we” must 
admit even more “refugees” — increasing the U.S.’ annual Welcome
ISIS! Program from 70,000 
currently, to 85,000 next year, to 100,000 in 2017. What could possibly go wrong? If history is any guide, approximately 91 percent of this latest huddled refuse of your teeming shores will go onto welfare the 
moment they set foot here in the 
Great Satan. That’s the good news. The...

    They told me if I voted for Mitt Romney the immigration problem would become worse. I had no idea how right they would prove to be.To set up your Saturday evening on a high note, some terrific news out of the southwest. We’ve clearly been in need of some creative solutions for what to do about illegal immigrants and we’re also very worried about problems arising from the mentally ill and our seeming inability to protect everyone, including the protecting the mentally ill from themselves. Now, at last, someone has come up with a project which is designed to...

  • When Marco Rubio Starts Crying, That's a Bad Sign

    09/26/2015 7:50:31 PM PDT · by Helicondelta · 35 replies ^ | September 25 | Ed Straker
    Marco Rubio is tough on immigration. I mean, sure, he sponsored the "Gang of 8" bill that authorized amnesty for illegal aliens, and he still supports amnesty for so-called "Dreamers" and at least a "portion" of Obama's executive amnesty for illegals, but he himself would not issue further amnesty, at least until the border is secure. He also supports keeping birthright citizenship in place, which creates anchor babies, and is willing to consider admitting more refugees from Syria. But when the pope started talking about admitting more waves of immigration, Marco started crying. It's clear where his sympathies lie. Marco...

    After more than five years, a civil rights group’s battle to ensure mentally disabled immigrants the right to legal representation is over. Now, hundreds of those immigrants who were previously ordered deported will have the chance to return to the United States to contest their expulsion, US District Judge Dolly M. Gee ruled on Friday. Immigrants with “serious mental disabilities” deported from California, Arizona, and Washington between Nov. 21, 2011 and Jan. 27, 2015, can now request to have their cases reopened, according to the Associated Press. So far, the government has identified 900 people eligible to return. Many of...
