    Of all the Gang of Eight, Sen. Lindsey Graham had the most to lose—but instead of playing to the base with reelection looming, he got immigration reform passed through the Senate. John Avlon on a true profile in courage.

    Ann Coulter, who had been one of Gov. Chris Christie's biggest cheerleaders, is a fan no more. She tweeted on Thursday that Christie is "dead" to her after Sen. Jeffrey Chiesa (R-NJ), the Senator whom Christie appointed after the death of Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), voted to end debate on the Immigration Reform Bill.

    Whatever your opinion of Obamacare, there’s no denying that its full implementation next year presents a major challenge for many businesses across the country. Starting in 2014, firms of more than 50 employees will be required to offer health insurance to their full-time employees — defined as those that work more than 30 hours per week — or pay a penalty. These expenses, along with added costs of complying with the law, will force many businesses to raise prices or reduce profit margins, two things business leaders never enjoy doing. While these mandates will increase costs for many businesses across...
  • Wall-E-Like Farming Robots Could Replace Undocumented Workers and Save the US Billions

    06/28/2013 7:11:13 AM PDT · by KeyLargo · 68 replies ^ | Andrew Tarantola
    Wall-E-Like Farming Robots Could Replace Undocumented Workers and Save the US Billions Despite advancements in mechanization within US agriculture, some menial jobs are still best left to human workers. Problem is, federal crackdowns on undocumented laborers have decimated that workforce. The Harvester automaton could provide a cheap, readily available labor force without the threat of raids by the INS. The US agriculture industry is worth about $300 billion annually—half from livestock production, the other half from crops. However, some of the most basic jobs in this industry still have to be performed by people. Jobs like offloading potted plants from...

    On Sunday, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin denounced the Senate's immigration bill in an exclusive opinion piece for Breitbart News. One week before that, though, Palin laid out a promise and a warning to her own party in a speech to the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, D.C. She said Americans do not deserve the exceptional country its founding fathers left them if they do not keep faith with the working class. And she said that that faith would be lost if the the Gang of Eight's bill, passed by the Senate on Thursday, became law. Her words...

    President Barack Obama is hailing Senate passage of a historic immigration bill that he says moves the country a step closer to fixing a broken immigration system. Now he's calling on the House to do the same. The president is also urging supporters to keep a, quote, "watchful eye." With the issue moving to the House, Obama says now is the time that opponents will try their hardest to block the bill from becoming law. He's asking supporters to tell their representatives in the House to vote for the bill.

    Full Quote: Senator Jeff Sessions, the chief opponent of the immigration bill, released this statement in response to the Senate passing the law by a vote of 68-32: “Sponsors of this legislation—despite the array of financial, establishment and special interest support—failed to hit their target of 70 votes. The more people learned about the bill the more uneasy they became. Failure to reach 70 votes is significant, and ensures the House has plenty of space to chart an opposite course and reject this fatally flawed proposal. "So while the bill passed the Senate, this is just the beginning. "The legislation...

Lindsey Graham (S.C.) - John McCain's minion, admirer of Ted Kennedy, pretends to be conservative but behind the scenes, works to screw them. Jeff Flake (Ariz.) - McCain's colleague from Arizona, McCain strong-armed or duped him into being with him, and would probably take no refusal. Orrin Hatch (Utah) - Senator since 1978, long time supporter and sponser of Dream Act, co-opted by his friend...

    Congressman Luis Gutierrez (D – IL) told Breitbart News on Wednesday he thinks Speaker John Boehner (R – OH) supports passing a comprehensive immigration reform bill. “I think Speaker Boehner wants comprehensive immigration reform. He wants a solution to the problem. I think he's for comprehensive immigration reform,” said Gutierrez, a long time amnesty advocate. “He's for a complete package, I believe. That's what he has said. My meeting with him last week leads me to no other conclusion but to affirm that.” Speaker Boehner told his Republican conference he would not move any immigration bill to the floor without...

    The New Republic ^ | June 27, 2013 | T.A Frank
    The consensus among decent people in favor of the immigration bill making its way through Congress is so firm that expressing dissent feels a bit like taking the floor to suggest we chop down the Redwood National Park. People don’t want to hear it, and they also think you’re a nut. That makes this article one of the hardest I’ve ever had to write. It’s not that I’m afraid people will get angry; it’s that I can’t imagine anyone on my side (liberal) is open to persuasion. And, despite the vastness and complexity of the issue, I have to be...

    1.) Why can't the building of additional border fencing be totally under congressional control (that is funding for it, decisions concerning the timing of its building, etc)? Leave Napolitano and the president out of the loop. 2.) There is no reason why passage of any final bill wouldn't have a trigger that automatically and immediately started and set into motion the building of the additional border fence. 3.) Again, any final bill should leave Janet Napolitano and the president out of the loop. Period. BTW, if illegal aliens are going to be expected to learn English, how much time will...

    New Jersey Sen. Jeff Chiesa will vote for the immigration reform plan pending in the Senate, his office said today. The Republican announced his decision the old fashioned way: on Twitter. His office confirmed that the new account, @ChiesaNews, is authentic. He later released this statement: “As a former Federal prosecutor and Attorney General for the State of New Jersey, I have looked carefully at this debate through the lens of public safety and law enforcement. This bill strengthens border security, E-verify and better identifies visa overstays through an improved entry/exit system. I will vote for this immigration bill because...

    American Thinker ^ | June 27, 2013 | Michael McLaughlin
    Like the cavalry riding to the rescue, the Corker-Hoeven 1192 page amendment is purportedly the "magic bullet" to salvage the Rubio-Schumer amnesty bill (S 744). The unstated objective is to make border security the focal point of the bill and the sole criterion on which to judge its viability. The premise is that if you can fix the border security problem then the rest of the bill can go sailing through with 70 or more votes from the Senate. It is a cynical, dishonest, orchestrated distraction by both parties to divert attention from what they really want to achieve with...

    Wednesday was blowback day. On Monday, 15 Republicans voted with every Democrat to END DEBATE on a phony "Border Surge" amendment which had been released just 72 hours before, and had ZERO hearings or hours of debate. It was disgraceful. It reeked of the same process by which ObamaCare was shoved down our throats by Pelosi & Co. And worse still, the promises of "700 miles of border fence" and a "massive deployment of force" to our border were soon revealed to be complete and utter LIES, as DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano has unlimited discretion NOT to build fencing and...
