    Weeks after accusing President Bush of "shameful" behavior over the imprisonment of two Border Patrol agents who shot an unarmed suspected drug smuggler along the U.S.-Mexico border, a federal lawmaker turned up the heat further Wednesday, suggesting the president should be impeached if either of the two men is murdered in prison. Speaking after the Federal Bureau of Prisons confirmed that agent Ignacio Ramos was assaulted by inmates in his Mississippi prison over the weekend, California Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher had a warning for the White House. "I tell you, Mr. President, if these men -- especially after this assault...

    Hillary Clinton, if president, could appoint 4 Supreme Court justices By Dave Boyer - The Washington Times - Thursday, November 12, 2015 Conservatives unhappy with U.S. Supreme Court rulings on same-sex marriage and Obamacare heard a powerful argument Thursday for defeating Hillary Rodham Clinton: The next president could appoint as many as four justices. When the next president takes the oath of office in January 2017, three current justices will be at least 80 years old: conservative Antonin Scalia (80), swing voter Anthony M. Kennedy (80) and liberal Ruth Bader Ginsburg (83). Liberal Justice Stephen G. Breyer will be 78....

    Telegraph ^ | February 13th, 2016 | reasonmclucus
    Protests of illegal immigration into the United States are peculiar because the wrong groups are protesting. Most of those protesting immigration are white folks who don’t want the entry level jobs the illegal immigrants usually take, particularly those involving manual labor or domestic service. These jobs are the type of jobs young blacks need to enter the labor force. Members of ethnic groups trying to enter the American labor force often begin with the least desirable jobs so that their children can have an opportunity for better jobs later. The loss of entry level jobs to illegal immigrants is keeping...

    A report in The Daily Signal exposed Obamacare's Medicaid expansion as an invitation to fraud and abuse as millions of possibly ineligible residents have enrolled. Now Congress is interested in investigating the fraud as hundreds of millions of dollars may be handed out to millionaires, illegal aliens, and other undeserving enrollees. "This is what happens. You open the door. You don't do your verification. You don't know who is coming into the program, and yes, you're going to see a program like this balloon and get out of control quickly," Blackburn said when asked if Congress should investigate the findings....

    Few professional analysts seriously expected six months ago that Donald Trump could win the Republican nomination. But after Tuesday night, it is a clear possibility. How much of a possibility? To get that answer right, it is important to understand some things about the Trump phenomenon. Perhaps most important, Trump's campaign is not a Tea Party phenomenon. While there's been a tendency to try to lump Trump in with various G.O.P. insurgencies of the last few years, that role is best filled by Sen. Ted Cruz, who really occupies the "Tea Party lane" of the G.O.P. primary more cleanly. Instead,...

    While not on the campaign trail, Ted Cruz, R-Texas, is still a working U.S. senator, and he introduced legislation on Wednesday to help federal immigration agents. ICE Support Along with Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions of Alabama, Cruz introduced the "ICE Agent Support Act of 2016" (S. 2538). The bill would give the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), an agency within the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the "necessary resources" to enforce U.S. immigration laws. The bill would allow ICE's Enforcement and Removal Operations, or ERO, to receive "substantial revenue" from penalties and fines from immigrants. The bill would...

    Top Senate Democrats introduced legislation Thursday that would grant government-funded lawyers to illegal immigrants who are part of the surge of Central Americans that have overwhelmed the border and stretched the immigration courts. Though unlikely to advance in the GOP-controlled Congress, the legislation is an important marker for both the presidential campaign and for the ongoing debate over how the U.S. treats the illegal immigrants -- and particularly the unaccompanied children -- that have skyrocketed in recent years. Sponsored by Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, the bill would allow illegal immigrants to delay their court dates until the government has...

Tens of thousands of illegal immigrant minors--mostly from El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras--have entered the country through the Mexican border since the influx began in the summer of 2014 and the administration has relocated them nationwide. News reports indicate that the 17-year-olds charged in the gruesome Massachusetts killing entered the U.S. recently as UAC's and both have ties to MS-13, according to authorities cited by various...

The move to eliminate the State Criminal Alien Assistance Program (SCAAPP) - which would save the Justice Department $210 million - is likely to face significant resistance in Congress and from local officials concerned about a loss of funding. The White House has moved in the past to trim or cancel the program, and each year, it has survived, said Jessica Vaughan, the director of policy studies at the Center for Immigration...

    Former Mexican President Felipe Calderón told CNBC Saturday that his country would not contribute “a single cent” to the building of Donald Trump’s proposed wall. “Mexican people, we are not going to pay any single cent for such a stupid wall!” Calderón, who served as president from 2006 to 2012, said. “And it’s going to be completely useless.” “The first loser of such a policy would be the United States,” he added. “If this guy pretends that closing the borders to anywhere either for trade [or] for people is going to provide prosperity to the United State, he is completely...

    LAURA INGRAHAM: -snip- Remember a year ago, most of us believed Jeb Bush was going to be the preeminent establishment voice in this race. He didn't catch fire... even in Florida he polled in fourth place, yet now Jeb Bush is on the move against Trump, he seemed very confident, he had his best debate performance, so I'd keep an eye on Jeb Bush... The policies that Jeb Bush is advocating, those two issues Trump and he most disagree on are trade and immigration. We've now learned the devastation of the American people as a result of the World Trade...

    Conservative Review ^ | 2/9/2016 | Daniel Horowitz
    Our judicial branch of government is irrevocably broken, even more so than the other two branches. To begin with, the entire premise of the judiciary being the final arbiter over constitutional questions is wrong. They have usurped power beyond the imagination of our Founders, even those who were skeptical of Article III. Worse, they refuse to use the Constitution as originally conceived as the guideline for determining the constitutionality of laws. Finally, even when applying the Constitution or statutes to relevant cases, they are incapable of divorcing their political views from legal arguments. ...overturning Obama's executive amnesty is the quintessential...

    SCOTUSblog ^ | 2/9/2016 | Dan Stein
    The Supreme Court has decided to review certain elements in United States v. Texas. The Supreme Court should leave the injunction in place until a full trial on the merits. There is no urgency to decide this case so long as the administration is restrained from giving out benefits that would be difficult to revoke: work authorization and eligibility for various other benefits. Should the Court lift the injunction and endorse the administration's wildly broad claims of unlimited power to permit millions who are outside the rules stipulated by the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) to remain here, then Congress...

    Pope Francis Will Stand With Migrants at U.S. Border Dudley Althaus And José de Córdoba Feb. 9, 2016 8:53 p.m. ET MEXICO CITY—Pope Francis arrives in Mexico on Friday for a six-day visit that will end with a highly symbolic and potentially controversial act: the pontiff taking a stand on the fortified U.S. border to show solidarity with the migrants trying to cross it. The pope’s gesture comes at the height of a rancorous U.S. political season in which immigration has become a hot-button issue. Two leading candidates for the Republican nomination, Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, have vowed to...

    Via the Weekly Standard, he's not saying anything here that he hasn't said before. He supports immigration reform, but not comprehensive immigration reform - only a piecemeal security-first approach will work, the same view now taken by Marco Rubio. But Cruz fans who haven't paid attention to him on this issue may assume, incorrectly but understandably, that he naturally takes the most conservative position that an electable Republican presidential candidate can take. Not so: It's Scott Walker(!) who's staked out the right side of the field by demanding that American wages be a variable when considering target numbers for legal...

    MARICOPA, Ariz. - After Arizona passed a series of tough anti-immigration laws, Rob Knorr couldn't find enough Mexican field hands to pick his jalapeno peppers. He sharply reduced his acreage and invested $2 million developing a machine to remove pepper stems. His goal was to cut the number of laborers he needed by 90% and to hire higher-paid U.S. machinists instead. 'We used to have many migrant families. They aren't coming back,' says Mr. Knorr, who owns RK Farms LLC, an hour's drive from Phoenix. Few issues in the presidential campaign are more explosive than whether and how much to...

    Judith Benitez had gone most of her adult life without knowing how to drive. The 35-year-old woman from Mexico who is in the U.S. illegally would ask family members for rides to pick up her children from school. Trips to the grocery store or the doctor's office were complicated. That changed last year when Assembly Bill 60 was implemented, granting people in the country illegally the right to obtain driver's licenses in California. Benitez, who lives in Lemon Grove, learned to drive and was among those in line at the Department of Motor Vehicles the day the law took effect.
