    The Washington Times ^ | Monday, July 28, 2014 | Stephen Dinan
    Illegal immigrants picketed the White House Monday afternoon, calling on fellow immigrant-rights advocacy groups to refuse to meet with the Obama administration until President Obama specifically includes illegal immigrants in any future meetings. “We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations,” said Rosi Carrasco, one of organizers, in a statement announcing the action. Billing themselves “undocumented immigrant leaders,” the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand.

    Tuesday at the Congressional Progressive Caucus' Ad-Hoc Hearing on the humanitarian crisis of unaccompanied minors flooding across the U.S.-Mexico border, a 15-year-old boy who made the journey alone from El Salvador accused U.S. Border Patrol of having "mistreated" him at one of the border holding centers overwhelmed by the tens of thousands of children. The young illegal immigrant complained about being given only "a cold ham sandwich twice a day" because it was not "enough food." He also complained of being given only a nylon blanket for warmth, the lights being left on and no privacy in the bathrooms. "I...

    On Monday, Oklahoma Republican Governor Mary Fallin called on President Barack Obama to end the secrecy surrounding the transfer of illegal immigrant juveniles to states across the country and accused the Obama administration of intentionally burdening states to use their limited resources to care for illegal immigrants. "Provided these reports are true – and I have no reason to believe they are not – your administration appears to be pursuing a course that actively shifts the costs of Washington’s failed immigration policies onto our states," she wrote in a letter to Obama. "You are intentionally placing a greater burden on...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) hammered the Republicans' response to the southern border crisis Tuesday, saying the GOP's $659 million does far too little to protect the unaccompanied children migrating from Central America. “We must have a heart, and look into our souls to guide us in our treatment of these desperate children," Pelosi said in a statement. "While we are reminded of the critical importance of passing comprehensive immigration reform, we must do so much more than the Republicans’ unjust and inhumane proposal." Pelosi lodged a series of criticisms at the Republicans' bill, arguing that it lacks sufficient...

    While some of the House’s more conservative members might consider impeaching President Barack Obama for an as-yet-unknown executive order on immigration policy, they seem to be wrestling with the idea that such aggressive action against the executive branch could result in a boon for the Democrats. During a Newsmax TV interview Tuesday evening, host Steve Malzberg asked Rep. Steve King (R-IA) whether it’s possible that the president wants to be impeached because he understands the Senate, as it stands, would never vote to remove him. King’s response: I’ve just started to digest the thought process of what it would be...

Gohmert told Gibson that some of the illegal immigrants are admitting that they are not fleeing gang violence but are paying gang members to sneak them in illegally into America. On stopping Obama’s agenda, Gohmert said when A President is completely lawless it is time to shut down funding to anyone who will act illegally. We must use the powers of the purse granted by the constitution to reign in Obama.

    During a hearing with House Democrats on Tuesday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi argued that the bill proposed by Republicans did not have the adequate resources to help unattended minors crossing the border with the immigration court process. The bill, announced by Republicans on Tuesday, would spend $659 million in new spending in response to the crisis on the border. Citing a friend, Pelosi said that “we cannot have deportation without representation,” and she praised the groups that were working to help the detained children. The hearing featured unattended minors, now living in the United States, who complained about how...

    Why are tens of thousands of unaccompanied children traveling thousands of miles to the U.S.? Is it to avoid violence? Or is it for a chance to live in a much wealthier country? The answer will likely determine whether they can stay. ADVERTISEMENT Last week, Fox News’ Catherine Herridge cited a government report showing that 219 of 230 illegal immigrants who were interviewed said they came to the U.S. because they thought they could get a free pass to American citizenship. Another study, by the Obama administration’s Department of Homeland Security, acknowledged that many “are probably seeking economic opportunities in...

    Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) denounced the House Republican border bill as a “surrender to a lawless president” because the legislation does not include any language to prevent President Obama from expanding his unilateral legalization of illegal immigrants. Here’s the statement: The Obama Administration has openly declared its plan to implement a unilateral executive amnesty for 5–6 million more illegal immigrants. This unlawful amnesty—urged on by congressional Democrats—would include work permits, taking jobs directly from millions of struggling American citizens. Any action Congress might consider to address the current border crisis would be futile should the President go forward with...

If this result is accurate, the public doesn’t much...

    In the mid-1990s, when the collapse of the Mexican economy produced a wave of illegal immigration to Arizona, I did volunteer work at a Phoenix school that was struggling to meet the needs of a few hundred Mexican children who spoke only Spanish.

That explains my contradictory reactions of appreciation for and disagreement with George Will' s open-arms pronouncement on "Fox New Sunday" regarding Central Americans streaming across the Mexican border into Texas.

    California Democratic congresswoman Karen Bass urged the American people to think about the surge of illegal immigrant children flooding the southern border as “a hurricane or some other natural disaster” — a statement even MSNBC host Jose Diaz-Balart found a bit perplexing. Bass appeared on Diaz-Balart’s eponymous show to discuss the growing number of Central American children illegally crossing the southern border of the United States. The sheer number has quickly overwhelmed government agencies and private charities, and calls are growing for President Obama and Congress to halt the deluge.

The Texas-based nonprofit Catholic Charities is currently seeking out foster families for the migrants, most of whom come from Central America.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Even as they grapple with an immigration crisis at the border, White House officials are making plans to act before November's mid-term elections to grant work permits to potentially millions of immigrants who are in this country illegally, allowing them to stay in the United States without threat of deportation, according to advocates and lawmakers in touch with the administration. Such a large-scale move on immigration could scramble election-year politics and lead some conservative Republicans to push for impeachment proceedings against President Barack Obama, a prospect White House officials have openly discussed.

    On Monday, illegal immigrants openly protested in front of the White House--and demanded more grants of temporary amnesty--without any consequences or fear of being deported. According to a Fox News report, "Illegal immigrant activists can protest outside the White House without worrying too much about" deportation because Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) merely "focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and--in some cases--those caught in the act of crossing the border." ICE reportedly "prioritizes deportation for felons, repeat offenders, gang members and others with a serious criminal record" and "largely gives a pass" to other illegal immigrants. “Unless the individuals meet...

    In an appearance on Fox News Sunday, conservative columnist George Will had some harsh words for those who insist that the waves of migrant children crossing the border from non-contiguous nations in search of asylum. “We ought to say to these children, ‘Welcome to American, you’re going to go to school and get a job and become Americans,’” Will insisted. He seemed to suggest that those who advocate for the deportation of South and Central American minors underestimate America’s power to assimilate foreign-born populations. “We have 3,141 counties in this country. That would be 20 per county,” he added. The...

    As our government is insanely arranging flights at taxpayer expense for Honduran children so that they don’t have to make a dangerous trek across Mexico and pay coyotes $5,000 to invade our country illegally, their president is smiling, making no excuses for his inept and corrupt administration or the fact that this “refugee” airlift will encourage a continuous flow of illegal immigration to grow the ranks of Democrat voters in the U.S., moving large numbers of Hondurans and displacing American citizens.

    Illegal immigrants are a minor annoyance; America’s shift towards European fertility is a catastrophe from which we may never recover. The demographic crisis isn’t at our borders but at home. It’s easy to blow off steam about illegals on the border, and tough to address the fundamentals. I’ve tried to do so in the past, for example here, but the real problems and prospective solutions don’t make easy sound-bites.Just to make things clear: I want super-tough, restrictive immigration laws. I’d prefer a Canadian-style system that favors highly-educated immigrants with capital to invest. But I don’t think the best immigration...

    Even as President Obama grapples with the crisis of immigrant children arriving at the Southwest border, White House officials are laying the groundwork for a large-scale expansion of immigrant rights that would come by executive action within weeks. Officials signaled strongly Friday that Obama's move would shield from deportation large numbers of immigrants living in the country illegally, as advocacy groups have demanded. Roughly 5 million of the estimated 11 million people who entered the country without legal authorization or overstayed their visas could be protected under a leading option the White House is considering, according to officials who discussed...

    Remember the laughter and snarky comments from the Left and its Ministry of Information when Texas governor Rick Perry activated one thousand Texas National Guard soldiers for duty at the southern border? “Ha ha they’ll just stand around like wooden Indians and watch ‘undocumented immigrants’ walk by,” we heard from people Beltway liberals who hate conservatives, especially conservatives with a drawl. The Left is about to get another lesson about underestimating those who live in “fly over country.” There is a local website (callthecops.net) that is reporting what Perry’s plan actually involves. Contrary to what has been postulated – even...

    The U.S. Border Patrol is being stymied in its efforts to protect the southern border by federal environmental regulations that leave an 800-mile opening. The Hill reports that about 40 percent of the U.S. border with Mexico falls under Department of the Interior and Forest Service rules that prohibit the Border Patrol from driving there, creating roads, patrolling, installing surveillance devices, or building infrastructure. The rules, designed to protect wildlife, also protect illegal immigrants and smugglers, Republicans say. "There is no doubt that the restrictions on accessing land along the border have made it more difficult for the Border Patrol...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton says she supports creating a refugee screening process for Central American children in their home countries to discourage dangerous trips to the U.S. and opposes changing a 2008 immigration law under review by Congress. The potential 2016 Democratic presidential candidate says in an interview with Fusion’s Jorge Ramos that Congress should provide more money to help immigration officials determine whether children should be considered migrants or refugees. Some of the children should be sent back, Clinton says, but the U.S. needs a “sensible, orderly process” to care for the tens of thousands of children crossing the border,...

    Pair proposed Humane Act to handle influx of minors at border The deadline is looming for a solution to the illegal immigration surge at the border. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas, continued to pitch their bi-partisan proposal on Sunday. The pair proposed a bill called the Humane Act, which they say could mean a quicker resolution for many unaccompanied minors crossing the border. Under the bill, U.S. Border Patrol agents would be allowed to ask children from Central America whether they choose to return home, the same question they ask those from Mexico. That question is...

    What will congressional Republicans do if President Obama takes executive action to defer deportation for millions more illegal aliens? "Fox News Sunday" host Chris Wallace asked Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) that question on Sunday. "[W]ill you do nothing, will you...cut off funding for the administration, will you consider impeaching the president?" Scalise said Republicans intend to be a "check and a balance against this administration," but he also indicated that Republicans will not use their power of the purse to stop the president: "We're going to keep the government running at current levels," Scalise said, referring to a continuing resolution...

    A single group of illegal aliens entering Texas from Mexico over the weekend included foreign nationals from Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). The group crossed into the Rio Grande Valley sector from Tamaulipas, Mexico. “One group of our agents apprehended individuals from Bangladesh, Nepal, and Sri Lanka,” said Albert Spratte, a spokesman for Local 3307 of the NBPC. “Everyone in this group was an adult male. They entered on Saturday, July 26, 2014. Our agents apprehended them, they did not turn themselves in. They were trying to sneak in.

    Illegal immigration protesters descended upon historic Boston on Saturday decrying Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick’s decision to offer shelter in the state to unaccompanied minors. While Bree Sison of WBZ-TV estimated the crowd numbering in the hundreds, Boston.com described the area in front of the State House as “teeming with protesters,” noting that rally organizer Jeff Kuhner, host of WRKO’s The Kuhner Report, put the number closer to 10,000.
