    Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal says all immigrants should come into the country the same way his own parents did —  legally. And they should assimilate. "Immigration without assimilation is invasion that can weaken our country," Jindal said Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation."  He made similar comments on ABC's "This Week."

    IT IS now four years since David Cameron promised to reduce immigration into the UK from the hundreds of thousands to “tens of thousands” a year. “No ifs, no buts”, was what the Prime Minister said. But the latest official figures, out yesterday, show he is nowhere near to fulfilling that promise. In fact in the last year immigration into our country reached record highs with net migration reaching a 10-year peak at 330,000 in the year up to March. Thirteen per cent of people in this country now were born abroad. ... the need to speak out has never...

    Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as “illegal alien,” "male," and “female,” or if they fail to “defer” to non-white students. According to the syllabus for Selena Lester Breikss’ “Women & Popular Culture” class, students risk a failing grade if they use any common descriptors that Breikss considers “oppressive and hateful language.” The punishment for repeatedly using the banned words, Breikss warns, includes “but [is] not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for...

    President Obama and Donald Trump see immigration differently. The President’s aggressive executive action on immigration is still being litigated, and Mr. Trump proposes action of a different kind. In the meantime, tax credits and refunds for illegal immigrants have become controversial. Mr. Trump says illegal immigrants get $4.2 billion in tax credits. He can point to a 2011 audit by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration. It confirms that individuals who are not authorized to work in the United States were paid $4.2 billion in refundable credits.

Instead, he built a new life in the U.S. over a decade, becoming a manager at a communications technology company and starting a family in the Dallas suburb of Plano. “You start growing your roots and eventually end up staying here,” the 37-year-old said. His path is an increasingly common one: Immigrants from China and India, many with student or work visas, have overtaken Mexicans as the largest groups coming into the U.S., according to U.S. Census Bureau research released in May.

'Certainly we’ve got to do more at our borders,' she added. 'And people have to stop employing illegal immigrants.' On Tuesday in Las Vegas, however, Hillary told a room full of high school-age illegal immigrants that if she becomes America's next president, 'I will fight for comprehensive immigration reform and a path to citizenship.'

    Let’s imagine for a moment the kind of country that Donald Trump, the leading Republican presidential hopeful, wants America to become if he’s elected. “Trumpland” would feature a 1,954-mile-long wall along the United States’ border with Mexico, to be constructed after the deportation of more than 11 million undocumented immigrants. Of course, Trump would ensure that the U.S.-born children of these immigrants lose their right to American citizenship, so they’d be deported as well. As Trump sees it, with the border wall up and the immigrants out, the U.S. could be a great nation again

In Los Angeles, 95 percent of all outstanding warrants for homicide target illegal aliens, as do approximately two-thirds of all fugitive felony warrants. More than 60 percent of the Hispanic gangs in Southern California—whose membership is in the tens of thousands—is illegal. These gangs are involved with drug-distribution schemes, extortion, drive-by assassinations, assaults, and robberies. According to the analysis conducted by...

In context of rounding up illegals for deportation, Mr. Trump was asked about the families. What about the undocumented people living in our country, working hard and raising children? Is Trump going to bust into every home Janet Reno-style and drag families, kids and all, to the southern border? This scenario creates quite the image and will be used repeatedly by the press to show just how unworkable, unfair, and heartless Trump’s idea really is....

This approach to citizenship has been the de facto (though not de jure) approach to the issue of "anchor babies," the children of illegal aliens who come to the United...

How is it that the 7th found that an illegal alien, regardless of which state they reside in can purchase a firearm when a legal citizen has to first LEGALLY RESIDE in the state?

The bill is what most House Republicans wanted, but it is not what Senate Republicans, or the president, originally envisioned.

Various price tags have been attached to Trump’s proposals, some of them as high as $300 billion. That’s a tough pill to swallow for anyone who wants to see the federal government shrink, but the numbers tell a different story altogether. “A modest increase in enforcement (such as E-verify or visa tracking) would cause significant attrition in the illegal population, sending millions of illegals home on their own at no cost...

    In yet another depiction of the nation’s flawed immigration policies, the Obama administration is extending a humanitarian measure designed to temporarily shield illegal immigrants from deportation during emergencies for the fifth time in five years. It’s officially known as Temporary Protected Status (TPS) but should be renamed permanent—or at least long-term—protected status. It involves tens of thousands of Haitians, who were originally granted TPS after an earthquake devastated the poverty-stricken Caribbean island in 2010. Then Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano said the benefit would last only 18 months and be limited to Haitian nationals who were in the United States...

    Jeb Bush is getting some heat for a comment he made in South Texas where he said his use of the term “anchor babies” didn’t involve Central Americans, but Asians. He’s actually right (and this is one of the few times I’ll write this). Here’s his comment: As I said in Spanish. My background, my life, the fact that I’m immersed in the immigrant experience. This is…this is ludicrous for the Clinton campaign and others to suggest that somehow, somehow, I’m using a derogatory term. What I was talking about was the specific case of fraud being committed where...

    California voters’ support for extending health care coverage to people in the state illegally is gaining ground, according to the latest Field Poll. The survey found that 58 percent of registered voters favor providing Medi-Cal to all of the state’s undocumented residents while 39 percent oppose. Last year, only a slight majority – 51 percent – favored the idea, while 45 percent opposed.

    Birthright citizenship isn’t just an American political and legal issue. Here is a quick look at how other nations deal with the question of citizenship for people born within their borders to non-citizen parents. In the United States, the current debate is over the Constitution’s 14th Amendment, and whether its Citizenship Clause extends to the children of undocumented immigrants. The 14th Amendment’s Citizenship Clause reads, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.” Since the Supreme Court’s 1898 decision in...

    PHOENIX, Arizona — Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio—known here simply as “Sheriff Joe”—loves 2016 GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and wants to accompany him on a trip to Mexico that would, in his estimation, either lead to a show of U.S. force in getting that country to come to the table on immigration and trade or expose that Mexico is uninterested in solving such problems. “I want to go to Mexico,” Arpaio told Breitbart News in a wide-ranging, nearly two-hour long interview in his office at the Maricopa County justice complex in downtown Phoenix. “I’ve gotten resistance from the Mexican government,...

    Tuesday on CNN’s “At This Hour” Republican presidential candidate Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) said Republican front-runner Donald Trump’s calls for the deportation of the 11 million illegal immigrants and their American citizen children is “Joseph McCarthy-like” and “illegal” and he added, “he’s a complete idiot when it comes to Middle East Policy” so if he is the nominee the GOP will “lose, and we should lose.” Graham said, “Well, I think Donald Trump’s pretty much an idiot on policy and Jeb Bush is a good man. What Jeb was talking about is birth right tourism. Millionaires from China and other...
  • What Did the 14th Amendment Congress Think About ‘Birthright Citizenship’?

    the American Spectator ^ | 8.24.15 | Mark Pulliam
    The issue is whether children born in the United States—even if their parents are foreign nationals who entered this country illegally—automatically become citizens. Current law supposes that they do—a concept termed “birthright citizenship.” Many people erroneously think this concept is dictated by the Constitution or enshrined in a U.S. Supreme Court decision. Not so. Section 1 of the 14th Amendment—the Citizenship Clause—states that “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.” When Senator Lyman Trumbell (D-IL), Chairman of the Judiciary...

    Hungary could well be the Donald Trump of European nations when it comes to immigration. The government is deploying police units along its 110 mile border with southern neighbor Serbia while it builds a double row of razor wire and a 13 foot fence. The country wants nothing to do with Europe’s most pressing human rights issue: a wave of immigrants who are part of largest global refugee movement on record according to the United Nations.

    Trump vs. Jorge Ramos on Birthright Citizenship, Wall: "Building A Building That's 95 Stories Tall" More Difficult full title Univision anchor Jorge Ramos took on Donald Trump at a press conference held by the Republican presidential candidate in Dubuque, Iowa on Tuesday evening. The two went head to head for five minutes over birthright citizenship, how Trump would build a wall, how he would deport illegal immigrants and more. Trump fought back against Ramos and attempted to get him to acknowledge crime committed by illegal immigrants. Earlier, Ramos was ejected from the presser for stepping out of turn. Ramos asked...

    You really have to marvel at the stupidity of progressives and now is one of those times. One of the main reasons Donald Trump is doing so well in the polls is because he’s saying what many Americans are thinking about illegal immigration and border security. National Journal columnist Clare Foran worries that if a wall is built on the border, as Trump has suggested, people who try to cross into America illegally could be injured. Her new column is truly stunning: “ Donald Trump’s Border Wall Could Have Deadly Consequences Donald Trump wants America to build a permanent wall...

    I'm getting pretty tired of this line and I'd like to point out how ridiculous it actually is, by way of analogy. Ever been on the highway? Ever notice all those folks going over the speed limit? (I'm one of them, by the way.) Imagine if the govt broadcast "We can't possibly pull over millions of speeders every day!" and, to top it off, make good on not doing it. I believe you'd be seeing a lot more speeders on the road. Especially if they never see anyone getting pulled over for it. Since it is actually true that there...
