  • Using Amnesty to Roll Back Second Amendment Infringements

    Gun Watch ^ | 22 November, 2016 | Dean Weingarten
    A little known law, passed concurrently with the Gun Control Act of 1968, offers the Trump administration a powerful lever. That lever can be used to roll back infringements on the Second Amendment that exist in the National Firearms Act of 1934. The National Firearms Act (NFA) is an ill-conceived omnibus gun control legislation passed in 1934. It was poorly written by an ascendant Franklin Roosevelt administration. It was designed to outlaw the possession of handguns through draconian taxes and regulation. The tax stamp for a single item was equivalent to a years income for a day laborer. Thrown...

    The nation’s most influential business lobby urged President-elect Donald Trump on Monday to take a “balanced” approach to immigration and to expand international trade, two areas where the Republican has promised to upend traditional party orthodoxy. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce told Mr. Trump that U.S. companies need to attract immigrants to grow.

    The administration has already taken the first step to accommodate President-elect Trump’s positions, agreeing Friday to take a timeout on President Obama’s push to kick-start his 2014 deportation amnesty. In documents filed with a federal judge in Texas the Justice Department said that in light of the new management that will take over next year, the case should be suspended. “Accordingly, the parties respectfully submit that further proceedings on the merits of this case, including the submission of a schedule for resolving the merits, should be stayed until February 20, 2017,” the Justice Department and lawyers for Texas said in...

    A Democrat congressman told the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday that the next president of the United States is a bigot, a demagogue, a liar, a sexual predator and a con artist. Rep. Ruben Gallego (D-Ariz.) said in a floor speech at the end of the day’s proceedings that President-elect Donald Trump could not be treated like any other politician or like any other Republican. “Because he is not. Trump represents something much more dangerous,” he said. “While none of us want to be in this case, we have a duty to treat him like the threat that he...

    Amnesty supporters have been pushing claims that deporting illegal aliens would cost fantastic amounts of money. The truth is that legalizing a horde of low wage people who already use massive amounts of government services would be fantastically expensive. This analysis, if anything, understates the real numbers. But it's a window into just what illegal alien amnesty would cost us.

The Pulse Opinion Research survey found that 51 percent of Hispanics believe that there has been "too little" done to enforce immigration laws. What's more, by a margin of 49 percent to 36 percent, Hispanics "support a policy causing illegal immigrants to return home by enforcing the law."

    The long-term costs to taxpayers of immigrants and their descendants are detailed in a new report from the National Academy of Sciences. The findings in the report indicate that if amnesty for illegal immigrants were enacted, the government would have to raise taxes immediately by $1.29 trillion and put that sum into a high-yield bank account to cover future fiscal losses generated by the amnesty recipients and their children. To cover the future cost, each U.S. household currently paying federal income tax would have to pay, on average, an immediate lump sum of over $15,000.

CBS News reports dozens of immigrants have been streaming through the streets of McAllen, Texas, on a daily basis. They have been taken to a migrant center at Sacred Heart Catholic Church where they were released by Border Patrol, with ankle monitors, while they file for asylum. Agent Chris Cabrera told CBS News that they’ve been seeing a spike in immigrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally, thanks in part to the election. “The smugglers are telling them if Hillary [Clinton]...

The powerful storm slammed the southeastern United States a few weeks ago, killing dozens and causing severe flooding. News reports have confirmed deaths in North Carolina, Florida, South Carolina, Georgia and Virginia.

    Complete Headline: Wikileaks Reveals–Hillary Clinton to Goldman Sachs: Americans Who Want to Limit Immigration Are 'Fundamentally UnAmerican' Clinton's statement is significant because it suggests that, according to polling data, Clinton views an overwhelming majority of the American electorate to be "fundamentally un-American." According to data from Pew Research Center, 83% of the American electorate would like to see immigration levels frozen or reduced. Clinton's declaration describing those who want to limit immigration as "unAmerican" came in the context of her urging action on "immigration reform." "Immigration reform is so important," Clinton told the Wall Street executives, as she demanded that...

    Jake Tapper's infamous furrowed brow of skepticism got quite a workout this morning on CNN's State Of The Union. The cause was the shuffling, dodging, and general evasiveness by Democrat vice presidential candidate Tim Kaine when questioned about the Wikileaks revelation that Hillary Clinton had called for open borders. Perhaps Kaine thought he would only be faced with questions that he would be eager to answer about the recent release of a decade old off-color Donald Trump tape. For the first part of the interview, Kaine was happily chirping away on this topic. However, Tapper eventually switched gears to ask about the Wikileaks revelation and...

The banner is of Hillary hugging what appears to be a young Latino girl, in front of a wall festooned with posters reading “Estoy contigo.” Translation: “I’m with you.” So when it comes to immigration, Hillary’s not with Americans worried about losing jobs and...

    Hillary Clinton looked to separate Donald Trump from recent Republican presidents on Friday, laying out a plan to encourage national service while arguing that Trump would never address the subject. The rollout of Clinton's plan -- which includes tripling the size of AmeriCorps and founding a reserve corps of 5 million people to respond to natural disasters -- was meant to be a moment for Clinton to talk more about her policies and values than about her boisterous opponent. But as has been the case throughout 2016, Clinton's speech was a both a direct and implicit rebuke of Trump.

Leon Rodriguez, director of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, could not deny that in many cases there is no data from the refugee’s home country that would corroborate or refute his story. He tried to reassure the committee by saying the screening process is lengthy and continuously being improved, noting that the United Nations pre-screens the refugees before his...

In the original amnesty, no tax was charged.  It was not limited by state or to certain dates of manufacture.  Information collected during the registration...

DACA gives amnesty for illegal immigrants brought to the country as children and DACA gives amnesty for their parents. But Clinton touted additional cases where she would unilaterally...

Her pledge for amnesty in her first 100 days -- in the middle of a national security and a border security crisis -- demonstrates her callous and cruel disregard for the safety of the American people. This Administration has released hundreds of thousands of criminal illegal immigrants, and yet Clinton says she wants to go even further, ending virtually all deportations and...

    Whether they are in the U.S. legally or not, more than 8,000 Syrian refugees in the country were just granted asylum by the federal government. The Department of Homeland Security granted temporary protected status to the Syrian citizens, despite fears of ISIS terrorists slipping in through the program, Fox News reported. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson said the “humanitarian crisis” the refugees face in their homeland has made it impossible for them to return. Though the program, which was created in 1990, is supposed to grant the protected status to refugees temporarily, critics have argued there is nothing temporary...

    An immigration watchdog group hopes to repeat the successful campaign that helped unseat Eric Cantor in 2014 by launching a similar ad targeting House Speaker Paul Ryan, highlighting his support for President Obama’s executive amnesty decrees, sanctuary cities for illegals and Syrian refugee resettlement programs. The ad by Americans for Legal Immigration PAC hammers “Lyin Paul Ryan” for his leading role in negotiating a $1.1 trillion omnibus bill that fully funded Obama’s amnesty plans, sanctuary cities, and expanded refugee program.

    Homeland Security granted a new temporary amnesty Monday to more than 8,000 Syrians living in the U.S. right now, saying they can remain for up to 18 months longer no matter what their legal status. Secretary Jeh Johnson issued “temporary protected status” to Syrians, saying that if they are in the U.S. as of Monday and continue to reside here permanently, they can apply for work permits and other documents to remain and live in the U.S. without fear of being ousted. His order applies to some 5,800 Syrians who were granted status under a 2012 TPS program, and 2,500...

    The number of cases of very dangerous, multi-drug resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (TB) reported in Massachusetts spiked 75 percent in 2015, to seven cases, up from four in 2014, according to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. In 2015, 87 percent of the 192 cases of active TB diagnosed in Massachusetts (167 out of 192) were foreign-born, a rate significantly higher than the foreign-born rate across the country that year, which was 66 percent.

    On Wednesday, Wisconsin Republican Rep. Paul Ryan, who has supported forms of immigration reform since he was a House staffer in the 1990s, declared that he would "debate anybody" who calls the current bipartisan effort "amnesty." "Earned legalization is not amnesty," Ryan said during a forum on immigration sponsored by the National Association of Manufacturers. "I will debate anybody who tries to suggest that these ideas that are moving through Congress are amnesty. They're not. Amnesty is wiping the slate clean and not paying any penalty for having done something wrong." I think that's a fine position Paul Ryan has...

    Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez is endorsing Paul Ryan for Speaker of the House of Representatives. Gutierrez, perhaps the most extreme open-borders advocate in Congress, was interviewed on MSNBC. As CNN is now reporting, “Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez on MSNBC called Ryan one of the smartest men in the GOP. ‘He would be good for the country,’ Gutierrez said. ‘He would be good for the Republican Party. Paul Ryan is the kind of individual that would work with people on the other side of the aisle and that’s what we need.'” Gutierrez has worked tirelessly to expand immigration levels and open...

    Senator Ted Cruz has a very bad future ahead of him. Right now, he’s only viewed favorably by twenty-eight percent of his own party, compared to sixty-eight percent of people who view him extremely unfavorably. If you’re going on the stage to speak, you get behind our nominee. You don’t stay in the bunk below. You get up and you fight...

    <p>California state and local law enforcement agencies may have to choose between more than $100 million in federal aid and the “sanctuary city” immigration policies that supporters say are humane, but critics say fuel crime.</p> <p>The policies, whether in writing or just in practice, preclude local law enforcement from working with federal authorities when they catch an illegal immigrant who by law faces deportation. The laws have sparked a national controversy in the wake of dozens of murders and other violent crimes committed by illegal immigrants who local law enforcement did not report to the Department of Homeland Security.</p>
