He was apprehended en route after quitting...

    White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters that Barack Obama and Speaker John Boehner spoke last week about immigration and the budget. John Boehner’s spokesman refuses to provide any details on the discussions. The Daily Caller reported: President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner talked about pending political battles before the congressional recess, but White House officials declined to detail the conversation. Any contact between the two leaders could be critical, because they’re expected this fall to negotiate important budget deals, to clash over delays to Obamacare, and to kill or approve a controversial and transformative rewrite of the...

    Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa insisted Sunday on Meet the Press that his remarks about drug smugglers outnumbering immigrant valedictorians by a 100-to-one ratio was not inaccurate and that the plight of DREAMers “tugs at his heart strings.” “The people who are advocating for this, don’t understand the full scope,” King said of the immigration bill, which would grant a shorter path to citizenship to young adults who were brought into the country by their parents when they were underage, and exempt them from fines imposed on other undocumented immigrants. “My heart goes out to valedictorians who were brought...

    President Barack Obama insisted Friday that the Senate Gang of Eight immigration bill would pass the GOP-led House, but that “internal Republican caucus politics” were preventing Congress from sending a comprehensive reform bill to his desk. The Gang of Eight’s wide-reaching legislation, which passed the Senate with 68 votes in late June, has essentially evaporated after House Republicans – adverse to many provisions in the 1,000-plus page bill – said they would not take it up. Obama said during his news conference that he was “absolutely confident” that if the Gang of Eight bill was put on the House floor,...

    Hamas plans to publicly execute two prisoners in Gaza this week as a "lesson" to others, according to Amnesty International. The organization has described the move as "deeply disturbing," reported the British Guardian. The human rights organization said a 23-year-old man had been sentenced to death for "collaboration with an enemy entity," He told his lawyer he had been beaten during interrogation, Amnesty said. An appeal at a military court is scheduled for Wednesday but he will be at risk of imminent execution if it is unsuccessful, reported the Guardian. The second man, 27, confessed to the rape and murder...

    Move would allow Obama administration to institute policies that would better integrate communities The Department of Housing and Urban Development has proposed a new plan to change U.S. neighborhoods it says are racially imbalanced or are too tilted toward rich or poor, arguing the country's housing policies have not been effective at creating the kind of integrated communities the agency had hoped for. The proposed federal rule, called "Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing," is currently under a 60-day public comment period. Though details of how the policy would specifically work are unclear, the rule says HUD would provide states, local governments...

    U.S.-born Junnyor Diaz studies at a Phoenix high school. His Mexico-born older brother, Edder, has applied for a program to avoid deportation, while their undocumented mother, Angelica, cleans houses to keep the family fed and, above all, together. For Junnyor and 16 million others like him in mixed-status families, reform could bring stability to a fraught situation in which a U.S.-born child is a citizen with a shot at a university education and a stable working life, while a sibling or parent born abroad can face instability and deportation. "There isn't a day that goes by that I don't worry...

    In response to a question at a town hall event this week, Rep. Aaron Schock (R-IL) suggested that a majority of House Republicans support granting amnesty through a GOP version of the DREAM Act to young illegal aliens who were brought to America as minors by their parents. Schock, a member of the whip team led by House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, was laying out for constituents his stances on immigration and the House GOP leadership’s plan to deal with the issue later this year. “They’re going to move one bill after another dealing with all the various issues that...

    The battle over whether the Republican controlled House will grant amnesty to illegal aliens or push back the Democrat controlled Senate’s drive to create millions of new Democrat voters has heated up. Because the House is in recess and its members are back in their home districts, the psychological warfare operations phase of this battle has been ratcheted up by the Democrats. A new report from the leftist blog, “The Hill” tells us that Democrat Representative Luis Gutierrez (Chicago – Mexico, Puerto Rico and South America) is crowing about personally knowing of between 40 and 50 House Republicans who are...

    Radical Democrat Congressman Luis Gutiérrez (D-IL) is as shameless as they come when it comes to illegal alien amnesty. In 2010 he brazenly made his true loyalties clear, and they are not with the United States or his oath to the Constitution: “I have only one loyalty, and that’s to the immigrant community,” Gutiérrez saidIn February he brought an illegal alien into the U.S. Capitol for the State of the Union address. Of course the House Speaker John Boehner - who by law runs the Capital - did absolutely nothing. Because the GOP leadership wants amnesty as badly as does Gutiérrez. And -...

    PRINCETON, NJ -- Hispanics in the U.S. identify with or lean toward the Democratic Party over the Republican Party by about a 2-to-1 margin, regardless of whether they were U.S.-born. Hispanics born outside the U.S. do have slightly less attachment to either party, and are more likely to be politically independent, but these differences do little to alter the basic underlying advantage Democrats enjoy across the entire Hispanic population.

    Amnesty advocacy groups, frustrated by the lack of legislative progress in Congress, are preparing to pressure President Obama to expand his existing administrative amnesty program if Congress fails to pass an amnesty bill soon. “There are groups that are for immigration reform no matter what,” Adelina Nicholls, the executive director of the Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights, told National Journal. “We have the other track. … The other track is Barack Obama.” Nicholls is referring to a policy Obama announced June 15, 2012, that unilaterally gifted temporary legal status to all illegal immigrants under the age of 30 who...

    The Republican Party is seemingly on the verge of embracing so-called comprehensive immigration reform. Using a tactic best described as “calculated incrementalism,” House Republicans plan to pass a series of individual bills addressing various aspects of immigration reform, which will then be combined in conference with the Senate bill. Former House Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) cut right to the heart of the subterfuge, saying that the Republicans’ promise “to act tough on border security while looking to secure amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants has become infuriatingly all-too-familiar.” Indications that House Republicans plan to acquiesce to amnesty were revealed by...

    National Review ^ | 08/09/2013 | Mark Krikorian
    There’s still a real chance that the Captain Schettinos of the House Republican brain trust will rescue Obama’s presidency by passing an amnesty. But some in the open-borders crowd are getting nervous about John Boehner’s ability to achieve Obama’s objectives. Their fear is that this session of Congress will end with no amnesty bill on the president’s desk, or with one whose criteria they consider too draconian. Their fallback strategy? Have Obama amnesty the illegal population by administrative fiat. Fawn Johnson at National Journal writes (emphasis added): Immigration-reform activists aren’t supposed to talk publicly about a Plan B. They can’t,...
  • Schumer's Euphoria Over GOP's Immigration Is Giveaway

    With an endorsement like Chuck Schumer's, it has to be bad. House Republicans should wonder why the Senate's most partisan Democrat is happy with their "piecemeal" immigration reform strategy. If ever Republicans had a litmus test for making sure they weren't doing something self-destructive, it's asking themselves this: Is Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., grinning about it? Senate Democrats' chief fundraiser, Schumer engineered the gain of over a dozen seats for his party in the 2006 and 2008 elections. Any "bipartisanship" this dyed-in-the-wool liberal and relentless political militant may claim to be up to is sure to be a Trojan horse....
