    GOP Rep. Dan Newhouse told C-SPAN viewers that Americans owe an amnesty to roughly 690,000 young illegals who got DACA work-permits from former President Barack Obama. Newhouse appeared on C-SPAN December 7, where he said: I have been part of a group that has been asking and pushing to get this done sooner, preferably by the end of the year, so we can take this off the table and put these young people who are in legal uncertainty, give them some legal certainty in their lives, some continuity. So I think if there is enough urgency here that we should...

    Since he became governor, Chris Sununu has rarely clashed with President Donald Trump, supporting the travel ban on citizens from several mostly Muslim nations and quick to play up visits he has made the White House. But when Trump’s immigration crackdown reached the state’s tiny Indonesian community this year, Sununu wrote a letter to his fellow Republican in October in which he said he was “respectfully requesting your administration reconsider its decision to deport these individuals” and urging it consider a “resolution that would allow them to remain in the United States.” Sununu insisted the case of the Indonesians was...

    A group of 34 House Republicans are pressuring Speaker Paul Ryan to give a Christmas present to the roughly 800,000 young people who entered the country illegally and were granted special status by former President Obama’s DACA program. DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, a policy enacted in 2012 by a stroke of Obama’s pen. At the time, most Republicans derided the policy as unconstitutional while Democrats championed it as the right thing to do for children brought to the United States illegally by a parent “through no fault of their own.” Now, 34 GOP House members have...

    TITLE SHOULD BE: DEMS READY TO SHUT DOWN US GOVT UNLESS DREAMERS ARE LEGALIZED. The threat of a government shutdown has put Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) in a tricky political situation. Schumer has kept his caucus unified against President Trump’s major legislative drives on ObamaCare and tax reform, but he faces a more divided group of Democrats when it comes to protecting young immigrants who could face deportation next year. The internal debate has more to do with legislative strategy than the underlining issue. Democrats generally back a legislative fix that would allow so-called Dreamers brought to the...

    GOP senators are pushing forward with legislation that would extend an Obama-era program allowing young immigrants to live and work in the United States, while pairing it with new measures to bolster border security. The legislation, introduced by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), allows the Trump administration to build “tactical and technological infrastructure” along the U.S.-Mexico border. It would target funding for so-called sanctuary cities that don’t comply with federal immigration law, bolster the e-verify employment verification program and crack down on "chain migration" by limiting which family members U.S. citizens and permanent residents can try to sponsor for a green...

    Senate Majority Whip John Cornyn (R-Texas) accused Senate Democrats of "jeopardizing the future fate" of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals beneficiaries by rejecting a DACA deal from Senate Republicans and threatening to shut down the government over the disposition of illegal immigrants brought to the country as kids. The deadline for Congress to act to save 800,000 DACA beneficiaries from the risk of deportation is March 5, though President Trump may give lawmakers more time to work out a solution. The deal from a working group led by Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) included border security provisions yet...
  • Report: DACA Amnesty Would Give Green Cards To 2 Million Additional Foreigners. Why? Chain Migration

    DACA amnesty would bring an estimated 2 million additional immigrants into America—on top of the 700,000 DACA amnesty recipients— according to Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies for the Center for Illegal Immigration Studies. Vaughan says: "If Congress were to pass an amnesty for people with DACA, it would ultimately result in 2 million new immigrants over time. . . For every two immigrants we admit, you can say there will be an additional seven admitted. That growth is built into our immigration system." This is because of a process called chain migration. Essentially, current US immigration law gives priority...

    Testing the resolve of Democrats, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell declared Sunday there won’t be a government shutdown this week over the question of protecting immigrants brought to the country illegally as children, describing it as a “non-emergency” to be addressed next year. “There’s not going to be a government shutdown. It’s just not going to happen,” said McConnell, R-Ky. House GOP leaders unveiled a short-term plan over the weekend to avert a shutdown and keep the government open through Dec. 22. The measure would buy time for bipartisan talks on a bigger budget agreement that would give the Pentagon...

    The Senate passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act on Thursday, which serves as one of the final steps for Congress to pass historic tax legislation. The Senate passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act 51-49, almost entirely along party lines, with Vice President Mike Pence presiding over the vote. Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN) voted against the bill, and 48 Democrats voted against the tax reform legislation as well. Reluctant Republican senators such as Susan Collins (R-ME) and Jeff Flake (R-AZ) voted for the bill after last minute changes were made. Flake received a commitment from Republican leadership and the...

    A short-term spending bill passed by Congress earlier this year runs out on Dec. 8, and keeping the money tap open is one of the main concerns as lawmakers return to town this week. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.) said Congress needs to pass a long-term spending bill, but “sometimes you need to do a short-term extension.” And Thune discouraged talk about a government shutdown: “There shouldn’t be any discussion about shutting down the government,” he told “Fox News Sunday.” “We can make this thing work,” Thune said. “We just need to get people at the table, negotiate it. I think...

    One week after Hurricane Katrina made landfall in August 2005, President George W. Bush consulted with his team of crisis advisers and inundated the Gulf Coast with cheap, illegal alien labor. Bush’s August decision to lift the Davis-Bacon wage law made it very easy for contractors to hire cheap labor. Mike Chertoff, the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), quickly suspended sanctions on the employers who did hire illegal aliens. The result was another flood – this time not of water, but of illegal aliens, 30,000 of which came to the Gulf Coast to take cleanup and blue-collar...

    GOP Sen. Lamar Alexander told CNBC that he will vote again for an amnesty, even though his vote for the Democratic-led 2013 amnesty bill helped demolish his establishment GOP peers during the 2016 primaries and election. “We need a legal immigration system, and we need to put that behind us,” he told CNBC’s John Harwood. “We tried to do it in 2013; I voted for it. It would’ve solved many of the problems … I would vote for it again.”

    “Under DACA—without the consent of Congress—individuals here illegally who met certain criteria were granted not only lawful presence but work authorization, and the right to participate in Social Security, which unlawful immigrants are not entitled to have,” Sessions continued. “So no matter what one thinks about the immigration issues and policy, it cannot be defended in my opinion lawfully.” “Once again, the Department advised and the administration put an end to it—and it is being ended now.”

    5,300 people who have been living in the U.S. since the 1998 hurricane will have to return home by January of 2019 The Department of Homeland Security indicated Monday that it would end a quasi-amnesty program for 5,300 people in the U.S. from Nicaragua, but extend it for 86,000 from Honduras. The U.S. had originally granted Temporary Protected Status to people from both countries after they were ravaged by Hurricane Mitch in 1998. Administration officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, told reporters late Monday that acting DHS Secretary Elaine Duke had determined that additional time is needed to consider the...
