    REVEALED: THE TECH SECTOR'S PERMANENT CAMPAIGN FOR AMNESTY SANTA MONICA, California -- FWD.us, the immigration reform initiative founded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, plans to launch a massive political push in December to support President Barack Obama's planned executive action on immigration. On Tuesday evening, it brought roughly 100 entrepreneurs to a "mini-hackathon" at tech incubator Cross Campus as part of a nationwide push to support the president's strategy. Though FWD.us declares that its mission is "to advocate for policies that will make the American dream achievable in the 21st century economy," its main focus is immigration reform, which it...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Ranking Member of the Senate Budget Committee and senior member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sounded the alarm today for those concerned about our borders: Obama is helping open borders billionaires while planning “to deny millions of Americans their shot at entering the middle class and a better life.” Sessions posted a statement today in response to the Wall Street Journal’s October 29 report entitled, “Obama May Cut Deportations.” The report revealed that President Obama is likely to announce an executive order that grants amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants as soon as one week after...

    Karl Rove’s support for what many Americans consider amnesty for illegal immigrants has put the Republican political guru at odds with The Heritage Foundation for a decade. That’s why observers of current and past incarnations of “immigration reform” were surprised to learn of Rove’s association with a campaign ad drawing attention in a hot U.S. Senate race. The 30-second ad was paid for by American Crossroads, a political action group largely financed by Rove, best known as chief political aide to President George W. Bush. The ad, which first aired early this month, cites a Heritage Foundation report last year...

    WASHINGTON—The White House is considering two central requirements in deciding which of the nation’s 11 million illegal immigrants would gain protections through an expected executive action: a minimum length of time in the U.S., and a person’s family ties to others in the country, said people familiar with the administration’s thinking. Those requirements, depending on how broadly they are drawn, could offer protection to between one million and four million people in the country illegally. The deliberations follow President Barack Obama ’s promise to act to change the immigration system, after legislation overhauling immigration law died in Congress. Republicans have...

    An election integrity watchdog group is suing the state of Maryland, alleging that it has discovered massive and ongoing fraudulent voting by non-U.S. citizens in one county. But because of the way that the non-citizens are able to cast votes in elections, the fraud is likely happening in every single county and subdivision across the state. The group believes that the illegal voting has been happening for years. The group, Virginia Voters Alliance, says that it compared how voters in Frederick County filled out jury duty statements compared with their voting records. The group’s investigation found that thousands of people...

    Steve King predicts Obama will “violate the Constitution, break the law and grant executive amnesty.” People really need to read the U.S. Constitution. It says, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States.” The Constitution makes no reference whatever to executive orders (EO). George Washington started the practice mostly because he had to. Traditionally executive orders have been treated by Congress as having the legal status of legislation, but only insofar as they apply to the management of how the government operates.

    Whenever one looks at the demographics of the population of America, and how it is changing, it always looks very daunting for conservatives. I agree. But I'd like to suggest a strategic solution that is very viable. The Hispanic demographic is ripe for a conservative takeover. The Hispanic population is a largely-Christian and very religious demographic. They are hard-working, very family-oriented, and tend to be moral. There are, of course, exceptions that disprove this rule, but I am speaking of the big-picture Hispanic population. They tend to have fled from countries that embrace socialism and police-state tactics on the part...

    I find it truly hilarious when the Obama hand gets caught in the cookie jar he always tries to deflect. Well, all the signs are pointing towards Obama issuing an illegal executive order to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants — by the Constitution he cannot unilaterally make laws and rules concerning naturalization. But then again, I don’t think Obama — the venerable Constitutional scholar – has ever read the Federalist papers or understands the constitutional concept of coequal branches of government and separation of powers.

The lawsuit, filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Baltimore, asserts that individuals who opted out of jury duty because they were not legal U.S. residents have cast ballots in at least three Maryland elections. Based on the number of potential unqualified voters identified in Frederick County, up to 7 percent of Maryland’s registered voters could be illegal immigrants, according to estimates. “Their continued appearance on these lists makes it nearly impossible for Maryland law to prevent these declared noncitizens from casting votes...

    U.S. immigration officials said Saturday that the man accused of killing two Northern California sheriff's deputies Friday is a convicted drug dealer who was twice deported from the country. Luis Enrique Monroy Bracamonte, 34, has been booked on charges of murder, attempted murder and carjacking in connection with a rampage through Sacramento and Placer counties that left two sheriff's deputies dead, another injured and a civilian seriously wounded.

    Rep. John Barrow’s ad two years ago about how “my grandfather used this little Smith and Wesson here to help stop a lynching” was widely recognized as one of the best of the cycle. The Augusta Democrat is out today with a sequel in which he bears his grandfather’s gun again, and pulls out his concealed carry permit along with it. (SNIP) The main critique of Allen is that he supported, and Barrow voted against, a supplemental appropriations bill passed in early August to focus on the children coming across the Mexican border. It included a lot of money for...
  • IA-04: Steve King/Jim Mowrer debate liveblog and discussion thread

    In a few minutes, six-term Republican incumbent Steve King will debate his Democratic challenger Jim Mowrer in Storm Lake. Iowa Public Television's "Iowa Press" is hosting the debate, and C-SPAN is also televising. (SNIP) He is third in offering amendments on House floor after Jeff Flake and Sheila Jackson-Lee. You can't always pass a bill but he has highest percentage of success in getting amendments passed. Mowrer says Senator Flake [of Arizona] has asked King to stop claiming that, because it's not true. They show the King tv ad I transcribed above. Mowrer asked to comment. He says it's false....
  • King, Mowrer Spar Debate in Contentious Debate

    10/24/2014 6:33:11 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal
    After watching the only debate between Fourth District Congressman Steve King and Democrat challenger Jim Mowrer, it is easy to see why King opted out of appearing with Mowrer at other venues, and even considered cancelling this one. King’s little-known opponent consistently attacked King during the hour-long event. (SNIP) He correctly pointed out that Mowrer’s son would be covered under Hawk-I, an insurance plan for children established by the Iowa Legislature when Steve King was a state senator. “By all measures that I can uncover, Mr. Mowrer’s children would be qualified for Hawk-I, so that exists, along with the high...

Officials have yet to say where the family came from. ... Ebola fears have also touched one of the world's most reclusive countries, North Korea, which will bar entry...

    Labor Secretary Thomas Perez said President Barack Obama will take "aggressive executive action" on immigration, which Perez said will bring about more "shared prosperity." Addressing the National Press Club this week, Perez, who is reportedly on the short list to be Obama´s next attorney general, said the country needed to "fix our broken immigration system" with comprehensive amnesty legislation that is "big and bold" to ensure that there is "shared prosperity," which he said is a goal of his Labor Department. Though the Congressional Budget Office determined that comprehensive amnesty legislation would lower the wages of American workers, Labor Secretary...

    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — The number of people who died trying to cross the U.S.-Mexico border has dropped to the lowest level in 15 years as more immigrants turned themselves in to authorities in Texas and fewer took their chances with the dangerous trek across the Arizona desert. The U.S. government recorded 307 deaths in the 2014 fiscal year that ended in September — the lowest number since 1999. In 2013, the number of deaths was 445.

    TALLAHASSEE — A coalition of Florida hospitals is challenging a state policy on emergency care for undocumented immigrants. Hospitals in states that participate in Medicaid, the joint state-federal health insurance program, are required to treat undocumented immigrants in emergency medical situations. In Florida, hospitals are reimbursed for those services by AHCA. AHCA used to pay for all emergency care for undocumented immigrants deemed "medically necessary," according to a petition filed in the Division of Administrative Hearings last week by the hospitals. But since 2010, the agency has been paying only to the point of "alleviation" or "stabilization." The hospitals argue...

    Eufracia Mora and her husband run a commercial and residential painting business, and often have to drive from two to three hours for a job. The parents of two small children ride the whole way unlicensed and on edge. "I'm always nervous every time I get in the car," Mora said, "Every day I drive for work, or I drive the kids to school, I'm worried I'll see a police car." Mora is undocumented and cannot legally obtain a driver's license. She joined nearly 300 people Wednesday night for a forum on immigration issues largely focused on whether driver's licenses...
